instigation of (lie iire excited ele
Imlent, as an incentive to vengeance.
Diseovering tle facts of .the case
Sheriff Graham, of Williaiburg,
warned the negroes that a limited
time would be given them to perform
the burial rites, and the body was
-hen interred wiihout f1urtler delay.
The situation was Ivell managed by

Who kept himiiself in Yiew,
No matter whatl he did, forsooth,

His name was in tth% papers once,

In all assemblies he was one
Who had bhe most to say.
He hurried here and hurried there,
As busy as could be,I
At banquets and in long parades
He showed his dignity.
'Twas thus he lived for many year,
And when he came to die
The city all in mourning stood,
A tear in every eye.
A marble shaft proclaimed his worl
And people called him great,
A man who started low in life
But rose to high estate.
