List Wedensday week about 12 o.clock, the news cam here that the negroes at the furnace at Steward county had rebelled, and thai they had crossed the Cumberland river and would attack Lafayette that night, and with this came other rumors from Dover. I fixed up immediately and went to Lafayette that night, getting there about half en hour iu the night. The re port I found to be false, but the town was ia a state of perfect excitement upon the negro question. The citizens had called together their most substantial men, and a committee were engaged in ihe examination of the negroes. I was per mitted to witness the investigation, which wog rather general and indefinite, but others had told startling facts in re gard to the insurrection- Mr. Rust, ow ing to the excitement, had adjourned his school that morning. Tuesday morning, I went to Dover, and arrived ihtre about 2 o'clock. The people had hung four negroes at 11 o'clock that morning, and two more then in town fo be hung. I got to thö place of execution in lime to see the lf9l one go off. Of the six that were hung, ihres had been preachers. They were ail prov ed to be ring leaders. I learned that the men at the forge were at work whipping ihe truth out of their negroes, so 1 rode out there Ihst jight. and was up with them all night. 1 never had auch feel iugs in all my life I saw a list of ne groes that had been whipped, and was lolll wht, tn-T aU hd stated, end then I heard the balance examined tme tak ing five and six hundered lashes before they would tell the tale but when they did tell it. tt was the same that all tne others bad told. Some told the whole story without taking a lick. Those who were examined were not permitted to see those that were not, they were kept en tirely seperate, end a guard over vach. One of the negroes at the forge died Irom whipping lhat night, several hours after the operation. The substance of the testimony there, was. that Christmas eve night, they were all to rise. Old Hrl, Amos, Anderson Grev and Ishmael. were to murder Par- - 'S . i ' a. . afltf - ish,' the msmeger, nd hit family except ! ni v ife. nd she in future was to be the ! wile oi lshmsel, the) were io kill Young ! Pepper next, (brother of Judge Pepper ) and other wbiiea that mieht be about the ' place; they were then to meet the Mill negroes at the forks of the road at Pid gil's. near Long creek, aud were to make s joint charge upon D iver; after they j bad cleaned up Dover, and provided ihr in elves with arms and ammunition, they j were to scatter out over the coun'.ry gen- 24 115 erally. At the Mill the negroes, or rath 82.178 r Bob Murrell. was to kill George Lewis 28 125 firs', then Henry Erwin, then the bat - j 1.560 lnte indiscriminately. Lewis and Er j 23.336 win whipped Bob Murrell to death. At 37.451 ' the old Dover furnac. Cnarlie N-ipier! was to kill brother George, first Mat Ilutson wa6 '.o kill young Toin Bucking. ham next, nnd Bill Blair was 10 kill E I win, George's son, and Henry and Willie Wynus, and ihen go to the Mill. B oih I er George hung C ti 3 r 1 i N i ?r one d .y about 11 o'clock, and let him hang till next day about 1 o'clock 26 hours. s 1 e e We are at woik here today. We have one negate in cluios, and w ill hang him. I think, certain. Il the committee will not, the community af4etermtneil to do it. 1 think we will h ive an c veiling time hert before e gei through. I have no doubt but that il is a universal thing ali over the Southern Slates and thai every negro fifteen years old either knows ol it or is into il, and the most confideu liai house servants are the ones mot ac tive in the destruction of their owu fam ilies, The negroes, everywhere they are examined, nil e?;ree thai ih men, women and children are to be slain, and that the young women are to he kept as wiv.s for themselves, and a good many ef them about Dover and the furnaces went so far aa to select their future companions.
