Excerpt: CHARITY BOWERY. By LYDIA MARIA CHILD. THE following story was told me by an aged colored woman in New Nork. I shall endeavor to relate it precisely in her own words, so often repeated that they are tolerably well impressed on my memory. Some confusion of names, dates, and incidents, I may very naturally make. I profess only to give the pith and marrow of Charity's story, deprived of the highly dramatic effect it received from her swelling emotions, earnest looks, and changing tones.
