A TttUK STORY OF 1K?5.
How Tom Was Tried Without
When Loo surrendered in April lstis,
and tho foundations of tho Southern
Confederacy wore giving way all over the
.South, many things occur rod in tho pri
vate lives of individuals, which can nev
er ho forgotten, There were occur ron
ces of which tho historian wllltakono
noticobocnuso thoy were entirely perso
nal or thu parties were lOOObSOUl'OOr tho
events too tragic to receive c red an co if
transferred to the printed page. Tho
following story is strictly authentic amt
can ho voriliod ill all respects as the
most of the aetois are still alive, and
eau vouch for ovcry ( ssontial lout uro of
of it although it is now a quarter of a
century slncO the fact ,.occurred.
A gentleman who thou lived In thc
lower pan of this ntitto had owned a
young negro man who.iouanio was Tom.
When Lincoln's Emancipation Procla
mation Wn9 issued oloourso Tom receiv
ed his freedom along with all the rests
of his An lean Urethren and was was
tut nedtoo-oj upon Cn; world lo seek his
fortune in any direction his taste
or hisIncllnintion might prompt. Ho
ing extremely indolent in his disposi
tion ho dotormlncd to enjoy nt h ast for
a time the luxury ol' absolute idleness,
lt was not long howw r ho fore the em
ployer ufnll idle pooplo found sumo
thing for his idle hands to do. A gen
tlomaii kept bachelor's hall about a milo
from whoroTom's lormor master lived
and as i-; frOlplOlltly tho ease with bach
elors ho was often ahsont from home.
Ho always however look tho precaution
10 lock up Iiis house, and see t hat OVery
thing WOS secure bcl'OrO leaving home.
Thisgonttoinan'N na.ne was Ponder
grass and ia still living in the lowor
part of this slato HO far as tho writer
knows. During ono of thoso occasions
wheo Mr Pondorgrnss was absent from
home 'Pom concoivod tho Idea of milk
ing a raid upon ids le.use and appropri
ating such articles iii ho might lind io
his own use. Ho according ly wen! one
night and burglarised tho house and
brought away a line double barrel shot
gun,wovcrnl ?inicies ol' clothing and
siudi otb,ir things ns suited Illa laney.
When Mr l'ondorgrass returned and j
discovered his losses ho applied to a
neighbor for t be loan of a large (loree
dog hi his possession that had been
trained lo follow tho track of runaways
and rogues. This powerful canine soon
took the track of poor Tom and followed
11 to tho catlin occupied hy his mother,
wno was thou discharging tho o lb co of
cook for Tom's former master. Mr. I'
finding tho door shut and fastonod de
manded admission which after som" de
lay was opened and them stood Toni
trembling and confused with bis guilt,
undeniably fastonod upon bim. Ile w as
ordered to produce t ie stolen goods
Which be promptly did without making
an;, attempt at concealment or denial.
Mri'then brought him and the atol?n
articles to tho house of Toni's former
alastor, and ox plained tba whole tran
saction to bim and asked bim v hal IK*
should do. The reply was the caso is in
your own bauds, Toni's former master
is no longer responsible for bim, and
you must disposo of tho matter in the
way you think best. Well thou,said Mr
P, I will take Tom out lo tho woods and
allOOl him. At that time, t be sn in mer of
1865, tho country was in n stat?? of prac

was entitled to OXOn i ?0 all the functions

Meantime Tom > mother, who was in
the kitchen in the backyard, heard w bat

?few moments entirely overcome with
gil I, and stood looking at Mr 1', and
then at ber guilty sop, while tears chas

At length recovering herself sha turned
to Tom nod began to upbraid bini for his
conduct not In tho violent language of
vituperation and abuse, but luwordsol
