JQHX R?HDOLPH. OF BOAKOXZ. Sitting one day opposite a gentleman at a hotel dinner-tfible in Richmond, he observed that he was eating one of those luxurious soft crab* of that region, and that, as was the custom of the hotel, : a glass of milk had been placed near hit ; plate; looking up from big own he said in a thin, piping voice: ihat n m siugu'ar dish of yours, sir, very singular ; crabs and milk! Juba, bring me a bawl of milk, and crumble some crabs in it!" A; the same hotel he said to a waiter, in 'he temporary abseuce of Juba, hand ing to him at the same time his cup and saucer r " Take them away?change it." 4 What do von want, Mr. R? ndolph *' asked the waiter respectfully, ?? Do you waut coffee or te-* ?" . ??If thai s'uff is !eaf"*said he, "give ine coffee: if it is coffee, bring me tea : ' want a change." Most readers have heard, perhaps oi I hs? reply to a wet known and highly j tesoectable gentleman of the South wh'"> I introduces himself to him while siandirg I and con/ersing with some frieuds, with?

"I can't help it, sir," he replied; "I'm lall confus on this morning; everything I goes wrong; even my memory has gene I a wool-gathering. I am just writing a I lareweil address to my constituents, an?I I I've forgotten the exact words of a quo I latiou from the Bible, which 1 want to lose, and, es I quote correctly, carmc I close my Ittter until I find the passage : Jbat, stiange to say, I forgot both the j chapter and the ver.-e. 1 ne-ver was in I fault befere, sir.

I A rather cruel test of the afl'ection of I hits servant John was tried on the ccca Ision referred to. Joun had in some way Iolilnded his master that morning, and, I as he was preparing the trunks, Mr. Kan I dolph said to him : j " Finish that trunk at once, John, and I take it down to the steamboat, and on your return take passage in the Phila delphia ; call on Mr , in Arch stieet, and tell him that i have sailed ; then go lo Baltimore, call on Air. , in Mon ument Place, and say that I shall write I to him from Loudon ; thence proceed to Washington, pack up the trunks at m\ lodging, take tuem with you to Roan oke, and report yourself to my over seer." j After a pause, he added, in a sarcastic tone: "But you need not obey them, unless you choose to do so. You can, if you prefer it, when you arrive in Philadel phia, call ou the Manumission Society, and they will make you free: and I shall uever look after you. Do you hear, sir ?'' This unjust aspersion of John's love, was too much for the faithful fellow; his [cheek swelled, bis lips quivered, his I eyes filled, and he replied ib great agi tation ; / 44Massa John, this is too hard ! I don't deserve it. You know I love you better than auy body else, and you kr.ow you will find me at Roanoke when you come back!" 441 felt my blood rising," said Mr Randolph's friend, and I could not avoid saying ; "Weil, Mr. Randolph, I could not have beiieved this, ii 1 hati not seen it. 1 thought you had moie compassion f.?r your slaves.
