His father was iv white man and his mother a netrro slave. An was the custom in those clays .'or slaves to do. bo tool; tho name of his muster, Col. Lloyd, but changed it several ye:irs later for that ot Douglass. Tho first tea years of his lifo were spent on tho plantation of Ills master, where he witnessed tho Indignities heaped upon tho nogro race uncle? slave rule, and learned to hato slavery with a bitterness that made him Its most determined foe. When he was about 10 years o;d ho wns sent to live with a relative of his master's In Baltimore and tuero enjoyed many privileges and advantages which few negroes received In those days and Icumed to read and write. He remained la Baltimore until ho was 16, when he was sent to St. Jlichaels, a small village on tho cast coast of Jiuryland. Here he suffered severely from the cruelty of his muster. He was soon sent back to Balilmore, and in 1S33 he succeeded in escaping from slavery and makinpr his way to New Yorlt. He did not feel safe there, however, and soon ho went to New Bedford, Mass., whore he lived Tor tliree years. He married and made his living by working uround the wharves. During this time ho had booome acquainted with William Lloyd Garrison nnd oiher prominent abolitionists and his abilities attracted their attention. In 1841 he made a speech before the ami- Bluver}" convention in Nantucket that won for him a high place among the anti-slavery agitators and ho tent offered the position of lecturer by tho Massachusetts Anti-Slavery society.

Feb. 21.—As then wore but sixteen senators present \vhen Thursday's session opened, a roll cai wys ordered, and it luicl the eJi T eot o getting forty-seven senators into tht chamber. A resolution was reported from th« committee on foreign relations bj Senator Turpie (dcm., Ind.) and ngreei to, expressing 1 the high a.ppreciatioi by the SKIUI tt 1 of tho distinguished honor accorded by the Mexican govornmeni on thu occasion of tho obsoqnios of tho Jnte United States minister to Mexico, Mr. liray, and directing the secretary of state to forward copies of the resolution to the authorities of Mexico.

House, joint resolution for the suspension of certain features of the law authorising'tho transportation of goods through t'liu United States to the free ;wnc of Mexico, so. long as the Mexican free zone la\v exists, was reported by Senator Coke (item., Tex.) from the judiciary committee and passed. A IVople Under LJoiid-AK* 1 A proposition for an evening session to consider a bill authorizing the issue of 87,500,000 of bonds for the increase of the sewer system of Washington was anta.gonix.cd by Senator Allen (pop., Xeb.) who said, in the course of his remarks, that if the United States capitol were placed in the city of Omaha (within 100 miles of the geographical center of the United States) he would guarantee- that the people of that city and tho people of Nebraska wonld pay all their taxes without calling on the general government for aid. It seemed to him as if the American nation had become a nation of "bond raisers." Everything looked ;o the issuing of bonds. The president wanted bonds; the secretary of the treasury wanted bonds; >erhaps half a dozen propositions to ,ssue' bonds had come from the republican side of the chamber and as many more from the democratic side; but not one iad emanated from a populist. The time had come, Senator Allen declared vhen. the government must retrace it >teps financially and cease the issuance >f bonds. The secretary of the treasury md ample authority to use all the mil ions of silver coin and silver bullion in tho treasuiy to meet current expenses and he dogfcd^-, persistently, and with out reason, refused to exercise tha authority. lie would not by his vote confer 011 the secretary of the treasurj authority to issue an interest bearing obligation. Declares 13oDdn Xull nn<l Void. Every bond issued by the secretary of the treasury to-day, Senator Allen asserted, was absolutely null and void. The act of January 14, 1S75, undfir which he claimed to issue them, had been repealed and was a deac letter; and every such bond, if legally contested in a court, would be held to be void. Senator Alien went on to refer to the attempt to pass a silver coinage bill last Tuesday as a mere ''spectacular performance."' There had not been the least hope of that bill becoming a law. "At 9 o'clock that evening." he said, "the war .was being waged with vigor with a seeming determination to force the bill to a vote, but all of a sudden the senator from Colorado, Senator Wolcott, offered a harmless sort of a resolution, and the war was at an end. The display had been made. It was merely a grand-stand %".',*, a spectacular performance. " In another part of his speech Senator Allen alluded to the reported accession to the ranks of the populists in the senate "the distingnished and profound" senators from Colorado and Missouri (Teller and Vest). and he expressed - the confident hope that-, before another year, there would be sufficient accessions to the populist party from both the republican and democratic sides of the chamber to prevent the issuance of more government bonds. Senator Gorman (dem., Md.) called up a motion which he had made Wednesday to reconsider the vote by which the conference report on the bill in re- iation to income MX returns as agreed to. On this motion a somewhat lively discussion ensued. Senator Sherman arguing that tho amendment made by tho conference committee, relieving- corporations of the requirement of reporting 1 salaries of employes, except where specially called for. was made for the convenience of corporations, and Senator Chandler (rep., X. 11.), intimating- that it was the work of the agents of tho "Eleven billion" r:u!ro:t'l partnership, who were hanging ri'iv.-l ;:.,• doors of the two chambers sceik.:.^' Co -iullucnce legislation. These assertions were indignantly refuted by Senators Yost (dem., Mo.) und Allison (rep.» la.), members of the conference committee, and finally '.ho motion to reconsider was, on motion of Senator Vest, laid on the table—yeas, nnys, 10. The senate then resulted consideration of the Indian appropriation bill. Mouse I'roccoiltnjj*. MN'nTOS. Feb.

Mr. McCreary (dom., Ivy.) called up the conference report on tho diplomatic and consular-appropriation bill, and debate on the Hawaiian uable question, .. the only matter sit issue between tho two houses, was b\~ unanimous consent limited to one und one-ball' hours. Mr. Hooker (dem., Miss.}, one of the conferees, was the 'first speaker, opposing the amendment of the senate. Mr. Storer (rep., 0.) favored the cabio amendment. Concurrence in the amendment was further advocated by Mr. Draper (1*0p., Mass.) and Mr. Herman (rep.. Ore.). Mr. Harter (dom., O.) argued that tho laying 1 of tho cable should be a. matter of private and not governmental enterprise. Mr. Eyan (dem., K. Y.) spoke in favor of the amendment and Mu. Tucker (dem.. Va.) delivered a sarcastic speech against annexation, which, ho declared, was tho real sentiment of thoso favoring the amendment. The house, by a vote of ISO to 134, refused to concur in the Hawaiian cablo amendment. The g-cneral deficiency bill was then taken up in committee of the whole. M.r. Durborro\v (dem., 111.) moved an amendment that certain parts of tho exhibit of tho suite department ma do at the World's Columbian, exposition shall be turned over to tho Field museum, Chicago.
