This slave was represented to me by one of the neighbors as a man of superior strength, both of body and mind, being nearly seren feet in height. There were forty slaves at work on the plantation of. B. S., before Dread was added to the number; and this name was given him by the newmaster, on account of his unco nmon physical strength. The next year Dread was made overseer of the gang, and the manage ment of the plantation was wholly left to his care. The farm was well con ducted under his supervision, and ev erything went on smoothly and pros perously for scneral years. The task of every hand was always well and seasonably performed, without whip ping. If a feeble woman was sick, or unable to accomplish her task alone, her brother wrs allowed to assist her. Or if a weak, feeble man could not keep up with the gang his friends were permitted to help him. This is a privilege not customarily granted to slaves. The fields of B. S. were now so much more productive than those of others around him. that the neighbor ing planters frequently sought advice of his colored overseer, in relation to the management of their farms; thus deferring to his opinion, and a imilting that he possessed more practical knowledge of agricultural matters than either themselves or their over seen, A gentleman, well acquainted wilh Dread, told me that be regarded him not only as much the stouttut, but the most intellectual man he ever saw. "Dread had the largest head," ht remarked, "I have ever seen, acrh I have seen Daniel Webstur; and hia i natural abilities were not inferior to those of that statesman." Placed in a condition less than most slaves, he had never appeared so me nial and timid. He felt and acted more liko a free man. He did not al ways take off his cap, and put it under his arm whenever he met a white man in the street, or enter his dwelling. It was natural that the white over seers on the surtondin plantations should be jealous of his suscess. And soon it began to be whispered, around the neighborhood that he might be come a leader in an insurrection. The slaveholders held a conference, and deeided that it wat necessary for B. S. to make an experiment to tost the manhood of the giant slave, and ascertain whethrr he could be made as submissive as all slaves should nude, 'be to insure the safetv Jof the master. Among the plans that were suggested to B. S., one was lo obtain another overseer, and put Dread to work under him in the gan-; and if he expressed the least objec'ion to the change, to whip him severely, and "break him in." A large, tall, stout Yankee was secured for a Driver, tnd Dread was ordered to take his hoc, and perform his task with the other hands. With out expressing the least surprise or re gret at the loss of his place, or even presumini; to inquire why he was to be no longer overseer, ho went to work with as apparent cheerfulness us usual. mt' - . , . , lu.s was so unexpecteu, trial ine masters were trreally pero!.-xed greatly perplexe They could really find no fault in the slave on which to predicate a charge, and inflict a punishment. His nobl e. fearles hearing, and stately ste tep, were felt alto unmisuaaDie ains unit tie e aa t a a gether too manly And indepenpent fr a humble slave; how to develop his feelinga and prove the fact, was the difficult question. There was nothing in his character or conduct that de served the slightest reproof, much leas a puni diiuent sufficiently aevcro to cruah hia manhood and brenk his ine vincible spirit. Still, all agreed that something must be done. Finally, they concluded to prefer false charges against him, and punish him if he complained of sutivriiig wrongfully. The master treated him with unusual severity. One, among numerous complaints brought against him, was, that he did not hoe his corn as well as the other hands. To re move this, Dread performed a double task, hoeing two rowa to euch of lhe ethers one. lorn, who hoed next t dread, tolJ me that Dread removed every weed, hoed it as neat as a gar den, determined to remove every cause for complaint; for he saw that a terrible storm was rising upun him. Dread and Tom occupied the same hut alter the new overseer had come: and they had always been mutual friends. "Master S ," said Tom. who rela ted the story to me, "came into our hut one evening, aoon after we had finished work, looking ao pale that he frightened me, and he aaid: "Dread! I say you don't hoe )our corn ao well as lhe other hands. " How do you know that, master?' replied lhe intrepid slave, rieiug np respectfully from his low stool, and lookiog the master calmly in tho eyes. "Now I knew." said Tom. "thai masterS. had not been iu the field - j nj i i . ., seer, as his quarters were beyond our . I. m m . t mm unv. isor naa ne sei n the otvr hut, and lur her trom the house. Be sides, had he consulted the o erseer. 1 h would have been informed that, in- I a A a a. . atead ol not doing 1 is work "as well," Dread bad done this work belter, and twice as much, as t ither of tbe other hands. But the moment he ques ttoned hia master's knowledge, he had exceeded the prerogative of a into a violent fit of anger. "Ah! you have got above yourself, boy." he .vociferated, raging an I foaming with passion. "I mutthve you foirffrt down a notch or two! You shall be flogged, you impudent, black rascal " "Ithall not receive a flogging, sir!" replied the indignant slave, firmly and fearlessly. "Mr. S. then pan out to the over seer, and told bim to call out the hinds. "Now take him and tie him," said Mr. S., when the whole gang had as sembled in front ot Dread'snut, and he was standing in the door. 'This,' said Tom, they atlampted lo do, in a scuffl.; which lasted nearly an hour; for with his bands and feet he flung them on the ground as fast as th 7 came near him. He evidently avoid ed injuring the slaves more than was absolutely necessary, in defending himself; for he knew they all loved him." Soon after the fruitless effort to subdue Dread, the master and over seer of another olantation were em ployed to eorae and help bind him, and whip him. In tbo mean time, dread furnished himself with a long butchei -knife, with whih he felf se cure. When he saw them coming in to the field to take him, he dropped his hoe, drew tho rude weapon from his side, advanced a few steps to ward them, and brandished the knife, as he stood in an attitude of conscious innocense, moral courage, physical strength, and bold defiance of his foes. "No man," said Tom, "dared lay a 6nger on him i" Now a crisis had come. A slave had successfully resisted his master. This must jtot be tolerated cost what it may. The deadly purpose was formed in the heart of the matter. "The gun was loaded," said Tom, "and I was ordered to take the amu nition. and accompany my master." "What are you going to do nowf" said Mrs S. to' her husband, as he was'passing out of the houso. "I am going out on a squirrel hunt," replied Mr. S., with apparent composure. "Had mistress known bis intention to kill Dread." said Tom. "I think she would have dissuaded him from his bloody purpose, for she was a Christian woman. But we started oil before she had tiraeti stay more. Passing aroun l behind the house, we came in sight of the slaves at work in a plum orchard, ill the valley behind the hill.

The darkness of night could not cover their sorrow. His heart stricken wife, broken down wilh grief which no tongue can describe, was sold a few days afterward, to a "soul driver" from Kentucky! Yocso Sam at Hts Meals Among lhe statuary at the palace, there is a group in marble or piaster by Jones, of London, labelled "Ptolemy Lagus, nursed by an ea?le."

The Datohman Who Had the Small Pox The writer sat alonside of the driver one morning, just at the bresk of day, as the stage drove out of Blackberry; he was a through passenger to Squash Point. It was acold morning.

It was evidently a case of mixed 1 breed. 1 "Where is Wood who used to drive this staite?" s "He be's laid up mit ter rumatiz, sence yester week, an' I trips fore him." I went on reading a newspaper. A fellow-passenger, on a back teat, not having the fear of murdered English in his hands, coaxed the Dutch driver into a long conversation, mush to the the delicrht of a pretty Jersey-blue- belle, who laughed so merrily that it ! was ontagious! and in a few minutes, j from being liko unto a conventicle, we 1 were as wide wak-j as one of Chrys ty's audiences.
