?j THE PACIFIC
A HIDE FOR LIFE.
BT AS OLD CONTRIBUTOR-
1 In the fall of the Tear 1825, a single horseman
ight hare been wen rushing at the utraoet possible
I teed, which the united efforts of both whip and spar
i aid command, along the old highway on the south
Je of the Catawba river, that led to the famous
land ford in the state of North Carolina. The in
, ridual mentioned was a finely-formed, handsome
S uth on the verge of his majority, with a frank,
il arless countenance, and firry graj eyes, betraying
t passionate temperament and a wul of strong, per-
m reckless enertrr.
7 The impetuosity of hia disposition also reTealel
lf in the wild eagerness of his looks and the hot
tl iste of his motions. The powerful animal beneath
aj s saddle had evidently traveled a long distance at
e present unnatural rate of Telocity, as his smoking
oiks were silvered with roam ana tne panting Dream
a' ued from the purple nostrils in that painful, snort-
. . . . . , . , i - , . . 1
tn g sound wnicn Detosens tne last ingnuui struggle
at the vital forces with fatigue; but the rider still
-gel him on with resistless fury, devouring space
' miles in minutes, hii ucicriuiucucicu w wucr
ne, and defy the very laws of nature. The perapU
st tion rolled, like rain drops, from his own bold brow,
( a rkh clothing was soiled with mud from the slime
tu the road, and his entire visage and appearance
owed his flight on some mission of life and death.
1 On reaching the Catawba, he seized a bugle de
cs nding from the bough of an adjacent tree, and
sc ew a blast so loud and fierce that it startled every
to rd in the forest, and was immediately answered by
e boatman's ringing voice on the other shore of the
ver, who in a few minutes, that seemed as many
sors to the impatient traveler, appeared with the

r uth, as the African Charon rowed him rapidly

CM The colonel is a bachelor."
lei Have too anv fast horses in the stable ?"
SI The negro eyed the stranger with a look of suspi-
wi yo, and gave a negative response, ine Doat soon
1 ached the bank, and the jaded beast of the traveler,
co ter struggling with difficulty up the ascent, fell
po xn the earth unable to proceed farther,
be The young man uttered an exclamation of mingled
f. erief and disapDointment, but instantly per-
iving a splendid black horse tied near the door of
'ol e neighboring mansion, ne wuaiy exciaimea, l
tl U3t have that animal, and will pay you liberally."
Tl "Impossible," ejaculated the astonished African.
y Master would not part with him for bis weight in
n "Ilere are two hundred dollars, and if that is not
su Kagb. I will make it good another time," said the
m: uth ; counting out the coin. Here is my address,"
added, writing with his pencil on a slip of paper
e name, John Fitch. Fairy Dell, Wilkes county.
I .. " But you shall not take Selim," asserted the slave,
"l igrily, and crying with all his strength for help
th His shouts drew a number of Africans and two
tin ' white laborers to the spot, but the traveler,
nrt rowing down the money and his address, snatched
P f pistol from his bosom, and keeping off the opposers
,e his desperate deed, mounted the black horse in
All spate, and flew away like the wind. Many persons,
cai different points on the road, witnessed with wonder
t e fury of that reckless ride, and with feelings of
I rror the wild looks of the traveler. Over hill and
W , dley, through forest and field, in defiance of stones
IS id streams, he rushed without rest or pause through
It t it the long burning day, and still the speed and
ar id a ranee of the high-blooded Selim bore him gal
At length the weary sun sank to repose beneath
es& i pavilion of purple clouds, and let fall its golden
tloi irtains; then deeper shadows fell from the soaring
for mmits of the Blue Ridge, and soon Heaven's dark-
-ed daughter, the mystic mother of dreams and sil
. , dews, the sleep inspiring night, spread ber black
ia ' antle over the world that mantle which would
exp em like a mourner's veil, were it not adorned by
Ian burning beauty of ten thousand stars. But still
Dr3 .e fiery gray eyes of John Fitch glanced not round
J. r the tokens of a tavern, and his impatience urged
, m as wildly as ever towards the mountains. A lit
anc 3 before the noon of darkness he entered a small
the cturesque valley, shut in by lofty hills, and musi-
J witn tne everlasting song oi a targe rui mat
eandered, like the folds of a silver serpent, through
s velvet green.
" Thank God, I am here at last ! uu, that it may
t be too late ! murmured tne young man in
ournful accents, as the light of a cottage became
sible among the trees. Then he drove his spurs
adlr into the side of celim, and a Tew more bounds
ern rough t him into the yard, where the horse fell ex
re n ousted as the rider sprang from the saddle, and
ope arst into the door, crying, in tones of unutterable
Jt a. snderness " Mother ! my dear mother ! are you
we A faint sound, betwixt a sigh and a groan, an
recWered, "My son!"
has The latter instantly kneeled by the couch of the
fjC. ck woman, kissing her pale lips, and bathed the
. md bosom which had cradled his infancy with the
. itter tears of love and hopeless sorrow. " I started,"
e said, or rather sobbed, " as soon as I received the
fom ;tter informing me of your illness, and I have ridden
and J nJ night; but, oh, dearest mother, say, are you
ot improving? Is there not still some hope?"
.j None even in the opinion of the doctor," replied
' ie feeble voice : and, but fur the attentions of that
fort ind lady, I should perhaps now be in my grave !"
nit The youth glanced round and perceived the blush
jt lg face of a fair girl that, in his grief and agitation,
, e had previously failed to notice. This beautiful
'ern eing was nearly his own years, large for her age,
hca at well formed and symmetrical as a piece of an
rua ique sculpture. With all the fascinating charms of
list n f ner MX ner countenance presented the
. road air of a queen, and her tears beamed with a
,ian re, denoting the energy of an irou will unaccustomed
wot 3 Kny control, save its own free and fetterless choice,
one " Miss Juliet Hale, how shall I thank you for so
can inch goodness?" faltered the young man, almost
p mable to credit the evidence of his own senses.
Her features flushed to a brighter crimson, but she
"rcl Aswered not. Then the dying mother beckoned the
for leautiful girl to the beds.de, and taking ber hand,
se&! ilaced it, in that of the astonished son, murmuring,
J J0, ane did so "My dear children, you love each
. ther, and I give you both my last blessing !"
la DC M Qh, this must be madness !" exclaimed the aston
hen 9hed youth. " I have worshiped her, as the magi
seat ian doth the star, for years, yet never dared aspire
o much as to touch her hand before; bat she, the
realtby, the adored idol of fashion, cannot love the
ioor, friendless teacher. The idea is impossible !"
nest I have loved you since the first moment we met,"
peai igbed a most musical voice.
prej Then be happy, my son and daughter." said the
fck woman, with an angel smile. Ye have no
- -elative on the earth ; bereaved orphans of the heart,
e that ye be everything to each other, as my spirit
Say, rill pray for you in its heavenly home !" And worn
for at with the unusual effort, the pale invalid dropped
here nt0 Bem'nZ slumber.
And thus those young and yearning souls strangely
T Iighted their faith there by the couch of death,
hns jefore the dim candle flickering on the humble table,
WeL md beneath the spectral shadows of the midnight
woo itars. while the winds of autumn moaned among the
neTI sine tops, and strewed withered leaves on the roof
P ibove their beads. Was the weird magic of the hour,
M r the silent sadness of the scene, an eloquent emblem
look j the coming doom? Alas ! everywhere, as ia the
the noet gloomy as well as the gayest seasons, the black
'Jaboringed Fates hover in the air around their chosen
emr rictims, nor give a sound of warning till the thunder-
oolt breaks, and the gleaming castle of youth and
. and jjp, BaKking in a mass of fiery ruins !
man) All that night the lovers watched, and the sick
' Hoiwother slept, or appeared to sleep, until the diamond
the Iawn- But just as the first refracted sunbeams began
- -to sow the azure fields of air with radiated roses and
Jr the flashing light of oriental pearls, a sadden change
8unIpassed over the pallid features of the dying the
discibreast heaved, and a faint breath flittered on her
as n white lips, then fled forever with the parted soul!
ter For her, there was never more either time, or space,
, . with wearisome cares, and bewildering heartbreaks,
aruP or pains, or pleasures of the senses nothing but the
. mattbeaaty of immortal being in the unknown land which
, Shiflies beyond the stars.
act n tne following day, late in the afternoon, the
--nfuneral took place, attended by a few poor neighbors,
and Juliet Hale, with some doxen of her slaves, from
,ectsthe large plantation distant seven miles. But as the
faMjSret clod of earth rambled on the cofSn with that
Comidull, hollow sound, the most unutterably mournful
cf tS" beard by a human ear, a strange incident
. startled the persons present five men, armed with
tle f pistols and guns, galloped up to the grave, and one
flirljof thn, pointing at the weeping son of the widow in
t: lie her bed of clay, shouted fiercely
C-2W- ' There he is; that is the horse-thief !"
"- : The leader of the band instantly presented his gun,
1 saying, " Surrender, villain, and accompany us as a
to be "CoL Banks, what means thu false charge?'
exi temmded the proud Juliet, withe flashing eyes.
f ' " Ah! Miss Hale, is that you?" replied the coarse
featured rnffian, with a look of amazement. "I
CZ a mean that this fellow yesterday stole my best race
tlra t. horse, and for that act I intend he shall swing." -J--J
J Yoa are altogether mistaken as to my motive,
i . remarked the youth, calmly. And he related toucb
f ingly the necessity and power of filial tenderness
C wht4h nred bira to commit the deed.
That is no lawful excuse, retorted the gambler,
brutally. " Selim was worth five thousand dollars,
and I had that sum bet on him for the next race,
and I see you have ridden him to death. Men. tie
the rascal, and let as be off with him."
"Stay!" cried Juliet, blushing like scarlet,
" Colonel Banks, I will nay you at your own valua
tion.' "No," exclaimed the other, and his features
writhed with demoniac rage. " I understand now
why you discarded me, and made choice of this beg
gar and thief; but, by Heaven ! he shall swing !"
John Fitch was immediately arrested and carried
away to the jail of Iredell county, and the ensuing
week wa tried. The evidence being fully presented,
the judge, who happened to be a particular friend of
the prosecutor, charged strongly that the defence set
up, furnished no legal justification, and the jury ac
cordingly returned a verdict of guilty, but with an
urgent recommendation of mercy to the executive.
The Court then passed the sentence of death in
form for such was, at that time, the horrible pun
ishment for horse-stealing and, as if to deprive the
prisoner of all hope, fixed the day of doom for the fol
lowing Friday, thus allowing insufficient time for
application to the Governor in accordance with the
wishes of the merciful p anel.
Ine proud and beautiful Juliet bad listened to the
whole proceedings without any signs of extraordinary
emotion, save the death-like paleness of her features;
but as soon as the final and fatal result had been an
nounced, she dispatched a trusty messenger to the
capital of the State, with a certified copy of the ver
dict and a powerful petition, signed by all the mem
bers of the bar and most influential citizens, entreat
ing for the pardon of the juvenile convict, although
it seemed nearly impossible that a response could be
obtained in season to prevent the execution.
still onwards, as ever, rolled the terrible triumphal
car of all conquering Time, moving on those viewless
wheels or irresistible destiny, silent as tne sepulcbre,
soft as the fall of a rose leaf and yet strong enough to
crush all hearts, and crumble into dust the granite
The day of doom arrived, and lone before the ap
pointed hour, an immense multitude collected to wit
ness the ghastly spectacle. Early in the morning, a
strange scene bad been enacted in the prison. The
young lovers the poor felon and the wealthy heiress
were wedded indissolubly for life; t ut, ob ! bow
brief must be that life for cne, when the last light of
evening would shine on his grave ! It was remarked
by the holy minister who officiated at the mournful
ceremony, that when tne bride uttered ner assent.
she added to the usual laconic response, in tones of
the deepest fervor "Forever and ever, here and
At length the crowd of thousands swayed to and
fro, and murmured like a sea swept by a strong wind,
The sheriff appeared with the convict, on the scaffold,
while the weeping Juliet, fated to be a widow almost
as soon as a wife, took her place in a covered car
riage near by. It would be a species of profanation
to imagine her feelings, much more to describe them
in the weak words of human language.
The prisoner, standing erect, firm, and fearless as
some mighty warrior in the crisis of a great battle,
offered a brief address, representing the sorrowful
story of his misfortunes rather than crime, with a
pathos and eloquence that drew tears from every
virtuous eye, and filled hundreds of hearts with fury
at the cruel spirit of his prosecutors.
Finally, the signal was given, and John t itch bung
vibrating, a thing of horror, in the golden sunshine,
suffocating for breath in God's beautiful, boundless
air. At tne end or tne proper penou, wnen ail to
kens of vitality became extinct, they cut him down,
and the bereaved young widow sprang from her cov
ered carriage and rushing forward, cried wildly " I
am bis wife and claim his corpse."
The sheriff hesitated, when the brutal voice of Col
onel Banks vociferated " You dare not grant her
request, for according to the sentence, the body must
be given to a surgeon, and here stands the doctor
ready to receive it"
Do vou hear the mm-tiend : un, ye sons who
have drawn milk of loving mothers! ye husbands,
who have fond wives at your happy hunes ! do you
hear this murderous monster, that insults the affec
tion of the living and wars with the ashes of the dead ?
Away with him to the hell which his presence would
pollute!" exclaimed Juliet, with lightning n her
looks, and in tones that rang above the clamor or the
crowd like the blast of a trumpet in battle.
The effect was magical. The long pent-UD wrath
of the multitude broke forth in a shout as Appalling
as thunder. Some placed the body in the widow's
carriage, while she leaped in beside, and the black
driver urged his four horses the speed of the whirl
wind. At the same instant, others overpowered the
sheriff and his posse, and shut them up in their own
jail. But the majority cf the frenzied throng vented
their rage upon the rutniess gambler. Col. Banks.
The billows of the ocean of angry forms rolled over
him, yelling like beasts or prey. They pulled him
hither and thither in different directions, literally
tramplinsr out the last spark of life, and then hung
his frightful corpse on the gallows.
In the meantime the covered carnosre flw onwards
toward the distant mountain of the Blue Ridge, and
within an hour, by bleeding and employing other
skillful means, the brave wife succeeded in resuscita
ting her beloved husband from the very jaws of the
remorseless monster, her almighty love thus defying
and defeating the grim demon-phantom. Death, which
she had sworn in the morning should never divide
them, either " here or hereafter."
John Fitch was seen no more in Carolina, but the
father of the writer, who was present at his execu
tion, met him afterwards in Tennessee, to which State
his beautiful Juliet moved with him a few days sub
sequent to the catastrophe, and, indeed, as the par
don of the Governor came on in dur time, there re
mained no motive for concealment, and the fact of
the singular resurrection in a short time transpired,
to the great joy and intense wonder of the very peo
ple who had seen him drop, as it were, from the gal
lows into the grave !
