was arrested, his trunk being broken open and its contents searched and scattered. He was taken before a vigilance committee and by it was condemned to receive twenty lashes on his bare back, well laid on, and then to be driven out of town. The sentence was carried out, we are told, in the presence of thousands of people of both sexes. Of the many somewhat similar instances that might here be referred to the writer will make room for only one more. A seafaring man of the name of Jonathan Walker undertook to convey in a sloop of which he was the owner seven colored fugitives to the Bahama Islands, where they would be free. Owing to an accident to his boat, he and his companions were captured. He was sentenced, among other things, to have his hand branded with the letters S. S., signifying Slave Stealer. The incident just referred to inspired one of the finest productions of Whittier's pen. Singing of that bold plowman of the wave he proceeds: Why, that hand is highest

South Carolina Legislature to prevent the recurrence of like missions: An Act to provide for the punishment of persons disturbing the peace of this State, in relation to slaves and free persons of color (Lib. 15: 14; 18: 65), and a similar one by Louisiana (Lib. 15: 17, 25). But slavery has n't left her pluck enough for that, I fancy—the melancholy truth. Other Massachusetts citizens were equally in need and equally devoid of protection at this moment.

Garnett's command, that I deem it a duty to send you the names of the men who were killed or taken prisoners in our regiment, (Jackson's) If come one in each regiment would do the same, it would relieve a great deal of anxiety which is being felt by persons having friends or relatives in the army.
