SHE Itl.COI.XTS, WITH PECULIAU L'XITIOX A
CATALOOCK OK ROL'THKHX HOUIIOIIS, WITH
WHICH TIIE MEMOllIES OK FEW MEN Ht'N
The venerable Jane Grey Swisshelm is
lending her pen to the work of piling odium
on the South, describing individual cases of
shocking brutality aud holding the people,
as a mass, responsible for them. Among the
more recent horrors described by her, is
the following. The old lady finds voice
through the columns of the Chicago Tri
bune: "In 18o9 I lived in the royal city of Louis
ville, which looked with contempt on the
collection of mudsills engaged in building
a would-be rival of its greatness, called
Cincinnati, and so became quite familiar
with the history ot, and local sentiment con
cerning, this Murphy episode in the pecu
liar institution. Murphy was a sou of the
Emerald Isle, who kept drays for drawing
merchandise ironi the Louisville wharf, and
a negress to add to the exports of the
State exports in which the blood of the'
Milesian had mingled with that of the
African he despised.
As the dray business increased upon his
hands, he bought a man to drive one. This
man was a powerful negro, and for him
Murphy paid $1,000 -a largt! sum for his
means; but he wanted a good article, and
had all the interests of ownership to induce
good care of this valuable piece of property.
Yet, it few weeks after the purchase, ho be
came furiously jealous of this article of
merchandise und the mother of his very
salable children; und, to wipe away the
stain from his Milesian honor, he, with an
other Irish d my man, bound the man to the
lloor of his stable, and proceeded to
take vengence on the prostrate victim.
The stable was a slight, rough structure
of boards standing on end, with a crack be
tween each two. It stood on tho corner of
two public streets I think of Market and
Tenth and there'the lash drew from thu
wretched creature such shrieks of agony as
tilled the air for blocks around with shud
dering horror. People, iu passing, stopped
and looked through the cracks, passed on,
and ntterward described the seene as l
would not dare to reproduce it heie in all
The horror begun iu the morning, and
for some hours was conducted on the ortho
dox slave-whipping plan of lashing tho vic
tim into insensibility, then reviving him by
an application of strong brine; and tho two
men took turns in tho worn, nut moon
niiikes tho titter fierce ; and as tho blood of
the victim was thrown lrom tho lush, his
torturers became Hondo. Strokes cut to tho
bone. His shrieks and prayers for death
were answered by horrible cursings. Bits
of ibsh were, detached and thrown
from the whip. The whip gave
out and was replaced by tlrst one
then another stave from a. sugar-hogshead,
nnd theao ngain. by a piece of harness with
a heavy Iron buckle, which cut through tho
walls of tho chest and exposed tho viscera.
Au'urtcry wits cut, tho blood fpurtod' over
the executioner, and death eame about
noon ; out still the master's vengeance wa
not sated. Ho continued to beat, aud cut,
aud mangle the corpse t He jumped upon

Hundreds of persons were cotrnizant of
the torture, and its cause, while it pro
ceeded; but Kentucky has never guarded
any ptate right wmi so mucli caro as tliat
one by which she secured to the master the
absolute coutrol of his human chattels.
The man was nunishinflr his own slave.
Sentimentalists might object, but the maj
esty of law must be respected !
However, there was a larae Ivortlicrn
element iu Louisville . at that time trud,
though the people who voluntarily sought a
nomu in a siavo Dtate wnere generally mori:
cruel and cowardly than a native-born
Southerner, folks felt that among them
would be some who would report the case.
The Abolitionists were making a great
disturbance, and would use this case against
It would not do to let it pass unnoticed;
and so there' was a tulle nt'nnv.sfin- Miirohv

There was a law on the statute books
making the killing of a man murder; and
as it never had come into use, it might be
well to give the world notice ot its exist
ence. They could the better to do this,
us the criminal was an Irshnian, in whom
it wa3 au impertinence to'exercise to the full
the rights and privileges of a native-born
Kentucky gentleman. !o the air grew
murky around Murphv. The morning
after the murder he had his accomplices t
put the remains into a cart, took them out
to a colored burying-ground, and put them
under ground. Then he spent twenty-four
hours settling Ins business, when he lett the
city. Next day the Mayor otfercd a re
ward for his arrest, aud so vindicated Ken
tucky law; but he never was arrested.
The case cot into the papers, even in
