BEHIND THE SOENES.
A COLORED AUTHORESS
In a few days G. W. Carleton & Co.,
of New York, will publish a book call
ed behind the scenes," by Elizabeth
Keckley, "liormerly a slave, but more
recently modiste, and friend to Mrs.
Abraham Lincoln." The book con
tains a portrait of Mre.Keekley, which
shows us a colored woman of more
than ordinary intelligence, and a deci
ded European caste of countenance.
Mrs. Keckloy resides at No. 14 Car
roll Place, New York. She says in her
profaci that her life, so full of romance,
may sound like a dream, but every
thing she has written is strictly true.
Of Mrs. Lincoln she says: "No wo
man was ever more traduced in the
public prints of the country. . . Sho
may have been imprudent, but her in
tentions wore.good." At another pled°
I am not the special champion of the
widow of our lamented President; the
reader of the pages which follow will
discover that I have written with the
utmost frankness in regard to her—
have exposed her faults as well as giv•
en her credit for honest motives.
Mrs. Beckley was born at Dinwiddio
Court House, in Virginia. After a fear
ful account of her girlhood as a slave,
she tells her readers how she gained
her freedom. Her master not succeed
ing in Virginia, moved to St. Louis,
where ho became so poor that the ser
vants had to be put out to work. Mrs.
Keckley became a seamstress and
dressmaker in St. Louis: She says:
The best ladies in St. Louis were my
patrons, and when my reputation was
once established I never lacked for
orders. With my needle I kept bread
in the mouths of seventeen persons for
two years and five months.
For twelve hundred dollars she pur
chased her freedom, and in the spring
of 1860 left St. 'Louis for the North.
Sho attempted to teach her art of cut
ting dresses to a class of colored ladies
in Baltimore, but was unsuccessful,
and in six weeks went to Washington.
She says :
The summer passed, winter came
and I was still in Washington. Mrs
Davis, wife of Senator Jefferson Davis,
came from the South in November of
1860, with horhusband. Learning that
Mrs. Davis wanted a modiste, I pre
sented myself, and was employed by
her on the recommendation of ono of
my patrons and her intimate friend,
Mrs. Captain lletsil. I went to the
house to work, but finding that they
were such late risers, and as I had to
fit many dresses on Mm-s. Davis ' I told
her that I should prefer giving half the
day to her, working the other in my
own room for some of my other lady
patrons. Mrs, Davis consented to the
proposition, and it was arranged that I
should come to her own house every
day after 12 ex. It was the winter be
fore the breaking out of that fierce and
bloody war between the two sections
of the country; and as Mr. Davis oc
cupied a leading position, his house
was the resort of politicians and states
men from the South. Almost every
night, as I learned from the servants
and other members of the family, se
cret meetings wore held at the house;
and some of these meetings were pro.
tracted to a very late hour. Thepros
poets of war were freely discussed in
my presence by Mr. and Mrs. Davis
and their friends.
Early in the year IMO Mrs. K. bade
the family of Jeff. Davis good bye at
Washington. She says that a few
weeks before Mrs. Davis left Washing
ton she made two chintz, wrappers for
her. Mrs. K. attended the charity fair
held in Chicago in HQ. She writes : -
In ono part of the building was a
wax figure of Jefferson Davis, wearing
over his other garments the dress in.
which it was reported that he was cap
tured. There was always a groat
crowd around this figure, and I was
naturally attracted towards it. I
worked my way to the figure, and, in
examining the dress, made the pleas
ing discovery that it was ono of the
chintz wrappers that I had made for
Sirs. Davis a short time before she de
parted from Washington for the South.
When it was announced that I recog
nized the dress as one that I had made
for the wife of the late •Confederate
President, there was great cheering
- Mrs. Keck* gives an interesting
account of tho way in which she hap
pened to be engaged by Mrs. Lincoln.
She met Mrs..Lineoln through the
flueues of Mrs. General McClean, who
was one of her patrons. Wo read :
It appears that Mrs. Lincoln had up
set a cup of coffee on the dress she de
pigned wearing on the eveuint. of tile
reception after the inauguration of
Abraham Lincoln as President of the
United States, which rendered it nec
essary that she should havo a new ono
for tho occasion. On asking Mrs. Mc-
Clean who her dress maker was, that
lady promptly informed her, "Lizzie
"Lizzie Kockley ? The name is fa
miliar to me. She used to work for
some of my lady friends in St. Louis,
and they spoke well of her. Can you
recommend her to me?
"With confidence. Shall I send her
to you ?"
"If you please,lshall fool under many
obligations for your kindness."
An hour was appointed for Mrs.
Keckloy to . meet Mrs. Lincoln at the
"You havo comp at last. Mrs. Kock
ley, who have you worked for in the
"Among others, Mrs. Senator Davis
has !An one of my best patrons," was
my reply. '
"Mrs,Davis ! So you have worked
for her, have you? Of course you gave
satisfaction ;so far,•good. Can you do
my work ?"
"Yes, Mrs. Lincoln. Will you have
much work for me to do ?"
"That, Mrs. Keckley, will depend
altogether upon your prices. I trust
that your terms are reasonable. I
cannot afford to be extravagant. \Vo
aro just from the West, and are poor.
If you do not charge too much, I shall
be able to give you all my work."
The dress was a bright antique.
Mrs. Keckloy finished it, and took it
to the White House.
We read as follows:
Tuesday evening came, and I had
taken the last stitches on the dress. I
folded it and carried it to the White
House, with the waist for Mrs.Grimsly.
When I went up stairs, I found the la
dies in a terrible state of excitement.
Mrs. Lincoln was protesting that she
could not go down, for the reason that
she had nothing to wear.
"Mrs. Keckley, you have disappoint
ed me—deceived me. Why do you
bring my dress at this late hour ?"
"Because I have just finished it, and
I thought I should be in time."
"But you are not in time, Mrs. Keck-
Icy; you have utterly disappointed me.
I have no time now to dress, and, what
is more, I will not dress, and go down
"I am sorry if I have disappointed
you, Mrs. Lincoln, for I intended to be
in time. Will you lot me dress you?
I can have you ready in a few minu
"No,'l won't, be dressed. I will stay
in my room. Mr. Lincoln can go down
with the other ladies."
"But there is plentyof time for you
to dross, Mary," joined in Mrs. Grims
ly and Mrs. Edwards. "Lot Mrs.
Kecliley assist you, and she will soon
have you ready."
Thus urged, she consented. I dress
ed her, and arranged the dress on
her. It fated nicely, and she was
pleased. Mr. Lincoln came in, threw
himself on the sofit, laughed with Wil
lie and little Tod, and then commenced
pulling on his gloves, quoting poetry
all the while.
"Yon seem to be in a poetical mood
to-night," said his wife.
"Yes, mother, these aro poetical
times," was his pleasant reply. "I de
clare, you look charming in that dress.
Mrs. Keckley has met with great suc
cess." And then ho proceeded to com
pliment the other ladies.
The death of little Willie Lincoln is
written about in a very simple and af
fecting manner. Mrs. Keckley says :
I was worn out with watching, and
was not in the room when Willie died,
but was immediately sent for. I assis
ted in watching him and dressing- him,
and then laid him on the bed, when
Mr. Lincoln came in. I never saw a
man so bowed down with grief. He
came to the bed, lifted the cover from
the face of his child, gazed at it long
and earnestly, murmuring, "My poor
boy, ho was too good for this earth.
God has called him home. I know
that he is much better off in Heaven,
but then we loved him so. It is hard,
bard to have him die !"
Groat sobs choked his utterance. Ho
buried his face in his hands, and his tall
frame was convulsed with emotion. I
stood at the foot of his bed, my oyes
full of tears, looking at the man in si
lent, awe stricken wonder. His grief
unnerved him, and made him a weak,
passive child. I did not dream that
Isis rugged nature could be so moved.
Mrs. Beckley gives the following as
Mr. Lincoln's opinion of General Lee.
The very morning of the day on
which he was assassinated, his son,
Captain Robert Lincoln, came into the
room with a portrait of General Leo in
his hand. The President took the pic
ture, laid it on the table before him,
scanned the face thoughtfully, and
said : "It is a good face ;it is the face
of a noble, noble, bravo man. lam
glad that the war is over at last."
Looking up at Robert, ho continued :
"Well, my son, you have natured safe
ly from the front. The war is now
closed, and we will soon live in peace
with the brave men that have been
fighting against us. I trust that the
era of good feeling has returned with
the war, and that henceforth we shall
live in peace.
Mrs. Lincoln contracted large debts
of which her husband knew nothing ;

A long account is given of Mr. Lin
coln's tragic death, and the fearful
grief of Mrs. Lincoln. It will be read
with bated breath and tearful eyes by
every American who peruses the book.
The following extracts will be of inter.

explains the matter of her offering her
wardrobe for sale, and contains a largo
amount of other interesting matter.

is none the less worthy of our admira

an humble colored woman. The spirit
in which the book is written is to be
commended. When every man's pen

Initiating a Candidate into the Good
The method of initiating a Candi
date into the Good Tempters is but a
slight improvement upon the same
programme so long in vogue by the
ancient and honorable fraternity of
the "Sons of Malta." A chap who was
taken from a lager beer saloon, where
ho got tight without knowing that la
ger would intoxicate, was put through
a course of cold water treatment by
the Good Templars a few evenings
since. He peaches on tho Tempters
and gives the following expose for
their initiation ceremony, for which,
no doubt, he will bo put through an
other course of cold water "spouts"
at the next meeting of the lodge. in
the first place the victim for initiation
is blindfolded, bound hand and foot,
and thrown into a cider press and
pressed five or ton minutes. This is
done for the purpose of clearing his
system of "old drinks." He is then
taken out of the cider press and by
means of a force pump gorged with
cistern water, after which a sealing
plaster is put over his mouth and he
is rolled in a barrel four or five times
across the room, the choir at the same
time singing the cold water song.
He is now taken out of the barrel
and hung up by the heels till the wa
ter runs out through his ears. He is
then cut down and a beautiful young
lady hands him a glass of cistern wa
ter. A cold water bath is then furn
ished him, after which ho is showered
with cistern water. He is then made
to read the water works acts ten times,
drinking a glass of cistern water be
tween each reading, after which the
old oaken bucket is hung around his
neck, and fifteen sisters with squirt
guns deluge him with cistern water.
He is then foaled to eat a pock of
snow, while the brothers stink his ears
full of icicles. He is then run through
a clothes wringer, after which ho is
handed a glass of water by a young
lady. He is then again gorged with
cistern water, and his boots filled with
the same, and he is laid away itt a re
frigerator. The initiation is now al
most concluded. After remaining in
tho refrigerator for the space of lira
an hour, ho is taken out and given a
glass of cistern water, run through a
clothes wringer, and becomes a Good
