say it; there was no calculatin' the ex
tent or handeomeneas of the family that
gal could bring up around her, with a
fellorlikeme to look after 'era. Talk
about gracefulness ; did you ever see "a
maple aaplin movin' with a aouth wind?
It wan't a crooked stick to, compare to
her ; but heboid dad was awful. He
could jest lick any thing that said boo.
in" them diggina, ontewar' Satan, and
was cross as a ahs bar with cubs. He
had a little hankerin' in favor of the fel
lers in town, too, fnr they gin him pres
ents of powder to hnnt with, and he was
precious fond of usin' his shootin' iron.
I detarmin'd, any how, to ask his darter,
Betsey, to be my partner at the Nettle
"Well, my sister. Martha, made me a
bran new pair of buckskin trowaera to
go in, and rile my picter,if I did'nt put
stirruDt to, 'em to keep 'em down. She
said atraps .were the fashion, and I should
weir 'em. Ijettfelt with 'oio on as if
I had somethin' pretsin'" on me down ;
all my joints, wur sot together; but Marth
insirted, and I knew T could aoon dance
'em off, so I giu in, and started off to the
branch forBeUey Jones.
"When I arriv. the old feller was ait
tin' smokin' aiter his supper, and the
younger Jones' wur sittin' round the ta
ble takin' theirs. A whxppin' big pan
of mnsh stood lite in the centre, and a
large pan of milk beside it. with lota of
corn' bread and bntter. Betsey was he'p
in' the youngersters, while old Mra. Jones
sot by admirin' the family collection.
Old Tom took a hard star' at me," and I
kind a shook, but the straps stood it, and
I recovered myself and gin him as good
as he sent, rnd I war near the door ready
to break if he showed light.
"What the thunder are yon doin' in
these diggins ?" says the old man ; he
swore dreadfully : "are you comin' down
here to, steal ?"
I riled np at. thtt. Says J, "if I wur
cumin' for such a purpose, you'd be the
last I'd hunt up to steal off on."
"You'ie right,';aaid he i"; "I'd.make a
hole to light your innards, if you.did,"
And the old savaage chuckled. I meant
hecanse he had notliin' worth stealin',
but his darter ; but he thought 'twos 'cos
I was afeaid on him.
Well, party soon I gathered up and
told him what Ifcnrn' fnr, and invited
him to enm up and take a drink, find see
that all went on right. Betsey'was in an
awful way far fear he wonld'nt consent.
The old 'ora&n here apoke in'favor of the
move, and old Tom thought of the tick
er, and gin in to the measure. Off boun
ced. Beteay up a Udder into the second
atory, and one of the amall gals with her
to help put on the fixnpa. I sot down in
a cheer, and fell a talkin' at the olil
'oman. While we were chattin' away
aa nice aa relation. I could hear Betsey
makin' thing stand round above. The
floor was oney Iooae board kivared over

Tom amoked away, and the young ones

To tie Editor of BoHon Journal :
I noticed, tn your papetjof Jast evening
an article, on ray reurnajome from Booth
Carolina. The fmpreanjeft by t it. waa
mainiy correct, una or too inaccura
cies I might nolle! I should prefer,
however, if oa ease ont of many ia suf
ficiently interesting to yonr ruder, to
give them a more 'detailed account of
the treatment ' I received. I shall
thus ' answer questions whiob will
be asked me a thonsand time once for
all, and mora correctly than ramor wonld
I arrived at Blackvijle, ninety .miles
from Charleston, at 8 o'clock on Monday
evening, November 5. Stepping npon
the platform, I was almost immediately
surrounded. bv a srbnu of vonnc men.
Finding that .they, were a Vigilance Com
mittee, I answered their questions until
tney asKeu, w uai are your political opin
ions ? Are yon infavor of Mr. Lincoln'a
election 7 My answer was, X beg yonr
pardon, gentlemen, 1 have nothing to
say to you on r political matters. They
asked me to stop examined my trunk
and a chest containing my library, nntil
late Monday night, 'and for an honr or
two Tuesday-morning. Th examina
tion was conducted with politeness and
delicacy. Tby fonnd little against me
nothing, as they told me which "ma
terially changed their impression. How
ever, I was a 'Northern man that was
sufficient. The chief of the -Vigilance
Committee told me privately that ancb
was the feeling that were it, not for sev
eral circumstances, "I should, not have
been let go with a whole skin. Howev
er, they would send me home safe, pay
my passage, and keep my books nntil the
money was refunded." r ,
This feeling, so strong then, gradually
cnangea. a lesnng sprung up ana gain
ed ground that I shonld he sent on to
my employer. The meeting broke up
without being able to agree. I was in
formed of this by one of the members,
who advised me to proceed. I told him
no. I'm not going to run away. I was
stopped officially, and I must have'offi
cial notice that I may leave. This
presently lecoived. 11ms the storm, I
thought, had passed away.
At Barnwell, 'ten miles distant, I en
joyed the hospitality of the Baptist min
ister. In tbe afternoon my employer
(from. a,, neighboring town) called.
While conversing with him I waa unex
pectedly waited .upon by a .gentleman
who, wished my attendance in the village.
We proceeded to the Court House. ,1
shall not be likely to forget that ' occa
sion: 'man v circumstances invested it
with interest. It was iBarnwell Conrt
Honse, from which, years' ago, under
memorable circumstances they sent away
the venerable Judge Hoar. It was an
assembly composed of the most respecta
ble men of the place. There were the
educated men, one minister (at least)
and the physicians of th town. There
were the principal , slaveholders, and a
large planter' of o.OOO acres sat in the
chair. The proceedings were parliamen
tary and courteous thronghont. I atood
atthe table (a little Massachusetts "man,
the shortest, 1 believe,. in-4my 'dass at
Harvard) and interrogatories were put
me one by one. What were .my senti
menta on Slavery, its extension, Mrl Lin
coln's election, the higher law; irrepressi
ble conflict, dec, dec. I answered them
fairly. When l conld reply with effect,
I did so ; when I could not, I declined
to. answer. Speeches -were made for;
and against. All expressed, iheir admi
ration at the able and honest 'manner in
which f hadiborn myself throaghont.
Manywho did so, said that convictions"
of ,dnty compelled them to-yot against
my, stay., .The vote stood 22 to 9. The
Vigilance Committee generously raised
the money5 on' the ipot to pay roy expen
se" home. ' " -

it should be opened to slavery, and con
