SATISFIED WITH HIS CONDITION- A Southern gentleman happening to be at Syracuse, N.Y., with a slave a day or two since, the abolitionists took it into their heads to give the matter a ride on the underground railroad. They followed him to church on Sunday, and calling him out, advised him to go to Canada, but the [result] turned out different from the expectation. The slave administered to them; a sharp rebuke disturbing him in his devotions, and informed them that he was contented with his condition, on which he went into the church, and his friends retired.-Lowell Courier.
