'Messenger of December 2d relates the
"following cool transaction ....
It. S. Pitt, a man well known in tbe
neighborhood of ilowland Flat, and
who has for soveral years been em.
.ployed in a meat market, at Totosi,
closed out his business there about
four monlliB ago and left for the East
oru States in September. lie kindly
consented to take under his protecting
care the wife nnd child oi'un intimalo
friond, in whoso house he had ever
rocoived a brother's hearty welcome,
as well us a brother's confidence. The
lady had loft her father's home in
Michigan threo years ago, a blooming
bride of ninoteen, nnd she was anxi
ous to visit again the scenes of her
girlhood, and exhibit to the grand
parents lier beautiful babe. And eo,
with many affecting tokens of truo
love, she bade the father of her babe
good-by and roluolantly placed hor
solf under the unsolfish euro of her
husband's friend. Timo flies, and lust
wcok tho Eastern mail brought tho
fond husband and fathor a letter from
a Broadway hotel, New York city.
iitt writes : "Friend F r: I concluded
I could lovo M bolter then you do,
and she thinks so, too, and we there'
fore concluded wo would got married,
which wo did." And tho pretty young
wifo writes: ''Dear F : I hope
you won't fuel bad, but we thought it
would bo just as well for you,- and
hotter for us to got married." And
a Now York daily of October 18,1805,
.contains the aunouncom&nt of the mar
riage, by Itev. D. D. Porter, of It S
Pitt- to Mrs. M M , nil of
J California. ''" ' ... 1 .,. . , j
Mortality aMono the negroes. In
answer to the charge that the large
mortality.amojig the negro population
South Is caused, by brutal treatmont,
the Louisville Journal, says : That
there baa been frightful mortality
.1. j : ,
among; mo pugroes oouiu wo Know.
Every man acquainted with the South
Ttrtows it. It is greater among them
than it was before they wore set free,
and we have not a doubt that it will
cnVinu to be, greater, for a while at
least. The utmost exoriions of the
freedman's bureau- and all tmb philan-,-thfopy
of the coantryJwill nbt ve able
to provent it. This increased mortali
ity, is incident to the change thftthns
r taken place in tbo negro status. Those
who did not anticipate this only betray
their ignorance of the nature of the
r negro. Ho cannot bear up under dif
ficulties and changes like the white
maal'TWhen' at homo, .witlr. regular
employment, food and hours, be mo v.
' ed along ,and kopt well; but all this
, .has bon changed, and the irregularis
m tios io which ho has been subjectod
cause, him. to sicken and djq. This
.change is how fixed and unalterable.
We must acoept it and do the boat we
can For awhile it will be. worse for
tho negro. TnrJ 1 Southern pqople
. cannot if they would, help this.;' It is
- inevitable. : It is useless to abuso the
inhabitants of tho South in oonso
quence of it, and it, ,1s base and villain
ous -to misrepresent them."
