Slaves under the jurisdiction of the
United States are now permited to bny
their freedom for $20.00. Some blund
ering copperheads hove been asking

hands , his head and his feet all belong
to his master. But the asking of any
such questions as that , only shows that
the man has treason in his heart.

soon as he can make satisfactory deal

head of cattle and facilities for feeding
