Louis, when iho rcachod Cairo, Campbell
and his partner, and another negro dock
hand known as ''Stove," wont to Doylo
and demanded pay for tho timo they had
been laboring on tho boat.
Doylo it ictmi told tbcm that ho would
pay off no moro mon until the boat had
mado the round trip, (from St. Louii to
jueropuu and roturn to Si. Louii,) and
that if they left the boat boforo roachlng
at. laouit tney would forfoit their nay
Although they wore much disappointed
ai not reemving tbelr pay hore, they con
cluded to go on to St. Louii,
Shortly aftor tho a hot u took place, a
bargo Jadon with coal for tho Grand
Tower came alongside, and Ibo deck-hands
were ordorod to put the coal in tho bout.
Campbell went to tho rear of tho boat ar.
ter a ihovel, procuring which ho started
to go out to thu bargo to
go to work. Hut on his way
he was met by the captain ol tho watch
who atked him if "he had had any trouble
with the 'old man,' " (meaning Doyle)
and at tho lame time added that he (Doyle)
had Just drlvon "Steve" (Campbell's part
ner) from the boat. Campbell said he had
cot had any trouble with Doyle, and
tarted for tho barge. Hut he had gone
but a few stops when hu was met by
Doyle, who wanted to know "where ho
was going with that shovol." Cnmpboll
replied that he was going to holp put the
coal on tho bout. Doyle then ordered
him to give up tho shovel, and go "back
on the boat." Campbell, fearing that if
he gave up the shovol to Doyle that he
would strike him with It, rotuiiied his hold
on tho handle. Doylo also look hold of
the handle, and succoeded In getting it
away from him. Campbell then startod
to run, but before he could get out of
Doyle's reach, was struck on the back
with the blade of the shovel.

When he went to tho Captain and ro

her, and left the boat apparently satlitlod,
as he told lome of the men lhat bo "had

Hating that ho (Campboll) had a " bill to'
settle with him, that he had wanted to
sottlo it for a long timo but he had never

Ihero was introduced u number of en'.

who according to their own teslmonv.
each had at sonio time in his llf h.nn a
deck hand on tho Grand Towor. Thoy
all knew Doyle, and wero unanimous in
tbo assertion that ho was a bud and dan.
gemus man. Ho was m tho habit of carry.
log concealod weapon, and did not hesi-
laieioknock a colored man on the head
at tie least provocation. In fact, accord
ini? to this calculation of non-dosjripts,
Doylo was tho meanest man that lived In
his day.
THE AUU.UULNT 01" COUNSEL
consumed tho greator part of two days.
Hon. II, W. Webb mudo tho llrst speech
for tho prosecution. Ho was followed by

being present, Judge Jlaker orJered that
thejury be brought Into court. Tho door
of the Jury room opened, and as tho mem
ber entered tbo court-room, thoy each
presented a determination of countenance
which of itself was almost sutliclent proof
that thoy had determined to return a ver
dict or guilty, and tlx tbo punishment of

Judgo llakor Inquired "Gentlemen, bavo
you agreed upon a verdict." Answor
was made In the atllrmallvo. Thu for
man of tho Jury then stepped forward and
banded to Circuit Clerk Yocum their
written vordlct, which found tho prisoner
'Vu'.lty of murdor as charged In tho in
dictment." and In tho words of the vnr
diet itself, "we do further Ur.d that he
liall sutler death by hanging. ' Thu road
ing of the verdict produced a tousation
of awo, and an oxproislon of Justice,
throughout tbo court-rocm.
The attorneys for tho prisoner askod
that tho Jury bo callod, and a4 tho names
of the Juror woro called, and the question
wuother thoy woro satislled with Ibu vor

-yes.

motion for an arrest of judgement which

8KNTK.NCK OK THE COUKT.
Tho motions for a now trial, and tho ar
rest of Judgomont having Lcen diposcd
of, it became tho duty of thu ccurt to pro
nounco sontenca upon tho prisoner.
The prisonor was requested to stand up,
when Judgo linker called upon him to
state if lio know nny reason why tonlcnco
of death should not bo pronounced upon
him. Campbell made no reply to lho
question, possibly not understanding what
the judgo said, as there was considerable
concision In tho court-room just at that
moment, everyono trying to gut as near
as posslblo'to tho judgo'i iland.
Ordor being restored and thn by-stand-crs
callod upon to maintain nilonco, Judgo
Jiakor, In the most impruisivo manner,
reviewed to the prisonor tho onormlty of
the crlmo of which ho was chargod and
found guilty j the reasons lor overruling
tho motion for a now trial o nturtd by his
counsel, and eulogizing them for tho effi
cient mannor in which thoy had conducted
his casn, and remarking that tho "court
had appoluted tho best legal talont at tbo
bar for his defense, and bad thoy boon
largoly feed they could not have dono
moro for him." As for a new trial to hn
granted .by tho supremo court on account
of any error committed by the court, such
a thing was possible, though not probable,
for bad this court orred at all, it was on
the side of the prisonor, who had from
first to last tho sympathy of tho court.
It now bocamo tho painful dutv of tho

At tho conclusion of thosonianco Judiro

to his cell, thoro to remain until tho day
of execution.

Generally he wus in good spirits aud will

load by Sheriff Irvln entored Iho open
placo betwuon the court-houso and tho on

of tho porcli ho caught sight of tho largo
crowd on Twentieth street, the greater
part of which was negroos. A hosawthem
ho took off his hat and criod at tho top of
his volco:
"ooon-UYK, 1I0V8,
farewell, farowell all ; I am going to leave

Thank God, I am going to rost."
Stopping inildu tho enclosuru ho contin

and I am willing to go. I am hung un.
Justly, but I am willing to go. Mr. Ir

Hu tbon sat down in a chair, Sheriff
Irvin (landing behind him with a band

Kev. Mr. Jackson, assisted by Mr. Tbos
Jenkins then sang the hymn entitled
" A II , I iiin.l I lirtn lililiriuelit biollllht."
At thn conclusion of the third stanza,

Campbell assisted in thu singing, and his
voice could be heard abovo all tbe rest.
At tho conclusion of the singing of the
njmn, Key, Jackson read a chapter from
tbe Ulble. after which he made a sboit
prayer.
During all this timo Campbell was very
quiet and never moved a muscle.
When Mr. Jackson bad finished his
prayer, Sheriff Irvln knell down and pin
ionod Camobell' fait, and rising took an
other short itrap and pinioned bit hands

Campbell replied. "Thank God. I am

watit you to see my mother back home."
Shorilf Irvin said he need ulve himself
no trouble about that. Hu would see that
his mother got home safe.
Campbell then said, "Thank God, tbe
Lord ha forgiven me."
Jonkln s held on tu Campbell's arm as
if to support him. He did not seem to
llko this, and said, "take that away, tbaro,
will you; I can stand."
.Sheriff Irvin then asked Campbell If ho
bad anything further to say.
Campboll replied that he had not.
The ropu was then adjusted about his
nock. Just before tho whilo cap was
drawn over his faco, Sheriff Irvln stepped
up to aud placing his arm about Camp
boll's body kissed him on the cheek.
Tho shorlfflhon said: "Aro you ready,

Campbell : "1 am ready."
Sheriff Irvln then stepped back, caught
up a hatchet, and at precisely 31 minute
after VI o clock cut tho small ropo by which
tho weight wore iuspendod. Tbe heavy
woigbts came down with a crash, and
Campbell's body was thrown up at least
eight foet, tho rebound being fully two
feet, and which broke hi neck instantly.
At tho expiration of six minute tbe
body hung motionless, and to all appear
ances llfo was extinct. He died almost
without a struggle
Drs. W. R. Smith, C. W. Dunning, and
H. Wardnor were in attendanco, and at the
oxpiratlon of 12 minutes and 20 seconds
announced life extinct.
From the report of the doctors In at
tendance, the action of Campbell's heart
ceased, 12th minute, 'JOtb second; and the
pulse ceased beating at the 7th minute and
20th second.
At thu expiration of twenty-six minutes
tho body was lowered into tho coffin and
turned ovor to Kev. Jackson and Mr.Thoi.
Jenkins. It was taken to the (even mile
burying ground for intermont.
When Campbell was carried Into the
air yesterday, tho weights Tailing on tbe
other side made aloul noise. At this
moment the crowd on the outside became
convulsed, and ono huge wench ran for
ward urylng out "come on you niir.ir.eri
and lets bust tbe white trash I " The
stability of tbe male, more or les occa
sioned oy iiiu ifti.t
of warfaro perfectly disgusted the wench
and her lip fell away down on ber breast.
Sho was a bravo a Zenobia and
braver thin Cleopatra and yet couldn't
raise a ritlle or enthusiasm. T'was too
bail I She hai our sympathy and may the
Lord preserve ber from tbo gallows.
