Frederick Douglass and his Master.. The last number of the North Star contains a letter from Frederick Douglass to his late master, Capt. Thos. Auld, of Maryland, from which we make the fol - lowing interesting extract : " I have been told by a person intimately acquainted acquainted with your affairs, and upon whose word 1 can rely, that you have ceased to be a slave holder, holder, and have emancipated all your slaves, except my poor old grand mother, who is now too old to sustain herself in freedom ; and that you have ta ken her from the desolate hut in which she former ly lived, into your own kitchen, and are now providing providing for her in a manner becoming a man and a christian." Federick expresses his gratification at this act of pure justice, derives from it the conclusion that an. ti - slavery agitation is not injurious to the slave, urges Capt. Auld to publish his conversion, and expresses a hope that he shall yet meet him and labor with him on the anti - slavery platform.
