HARPER'S WEEKLY.

THE SLAVE OWNER'S SPECTRE.

And the Nigger never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting

On that horrid bust of HORACE just above my chamber-door;

And his lips, they have the snigger, of a worthless freeborn Nigger,

And he swells his sombre figger, when I ask him, with a roar,

"Will you blacks again be Cattle, as you used to be before?"

Cries the Chattel, "Never more!"
