White, of King William county, who vouches for the accuracy of the statement. Some days ago, when the Yankee* made tbeir raid to Aylett't, tbey visited the place of Dr. Gregg, living In the neighborhood, aud took from tbeir rcmforlafele borne* forty-three negro**, who were hurried off fo York rlrer and placed on board a vessel bound northward. Along with these negroes, as a prisoner, was a gentleman named Lee, a resident and highly resectable citiasn of King Wtllimu. who has since been released and allowed to return bom*. He states that wben tbe vessel arrived in Chesapeake Bay the smallpox made IU appearance among the negroes, that disease having existed to some extent among the tame family before they were dragged from their home* In King William. Tbe captain of tie Yankee Tassel and bis crew were greatly alarmed at th* appearance of tbe disease on board, and very soon determined to rid the vessel of the presence of Uie negroes. Without attempting to make th: shore, and, not conildering lor an instant tbe Inhumanity of the ciuel deed, the wbole negro cargo m thrown Into the bsy, and ere ry on* left to perish by drowning. Not ooe, per haps, escaped tbe cruel fate stilted epos them by those who profess to be tbeir earnest friend* sod warmest sympathisers-Bi<5*tttowd DUpatch To Manx Mobxsaxa.-A oorreepoodeDi in tbe Mobile Bvaning News, t&ys: The ppreheoston of a scarcity of sugar end molasses ia the Confederacy, Indues* me, before It is too late, to urge upon every man who enlrlrate* as much a* ten acre* of land, to make his own molasses, at least. Nothing la easier or more simple tban to make molasses from tbe Juice of watermelon. Take the Juloe of ripe melons and boil it Id a large pot or kettle, tbe larger the better, until It is brought to the proper consistence, adding fresh Juice from time to time at it boils away. This la at) that Is necessary, and this any one can do. If tbe business Is conducted on a large scale, a simple pre**, similar to the old fashioned elder press, can be made lo extract tha j nice from tbe palp. After being pressed, tbe palp should be pot tn a barrel and left lo ferment.- Draw off the liquid produced by the fermeoutloc. and It will be lound to be tbe beat of vinegar. A young lady, employed la teaching a district school somewhere In Ohio, wished to open tbe school with prayer, and for that purpoee asked tbe eoDteot of the trustee*. It was given readily, oa one condition, that tbe prayer ahould not be "sectarian." The condition was accepted. After torn* week*, the school mistress was aumuoned to a meeting of the trustee*. Complaint bad been made that tbe daily prayer, contrary to condition, was "sectarian." Tbe young lady had no k nowledge of tbe cbs.pe. Bus asked for tbe specifications. A grave tnut** arose sod stated that he was sorry to be obliged to testify that be himself had beard a "sectarian' prayer while vtelttng tb* school. "Weil, what waa ll?" "It was an Rpl*eopaJ prayer.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
