POOR DREAD;
THE HEROIC SLAVE.
B. S., of F. H , in South Carolina,
owned a giitnt slave whose name was
Dreail. 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. Master raised his gun-held
it steady to his eve. until the victim
wasselected from the other hands.-
and then fired

"Hold your tongue!" commanded
the murderer.
"Still she screamed." said Tom,
"lonJer than I ever heard from wo
man "Dicad is dead! Dread is

ness to the young men it was his of

ef
walking together, and the professor
was seeking to lead the conversation
to grave subjects they saw a pair of
old shoes lying in their path, which
they supposed to belong lo a poor
man who had nearly finished his day's

The young student turnetl to the
professor saying: "Let us play the

"we must never amuse ourselves at
the expense of the poor. But you are
rich, and you may give yourself a
much greater pleasure by means of
this poor man. Put a dollar in each
shoe, and then we will hide ourselves.'
The student did so, and then placed
himself with the professor behind the
bushes close by, through which thev
could easily watch the laborer, and
see whatever wonder or joy ho might
express. The pocr man had soon
finished his work, and came acrosf
