A cold blooded inurdcf like this, was a
eircum-tancc that had not agitated the
community of Boque Chitto for a Ions
time ; and Squire Hendricks being widely I
known, and deservedly popular, H crea-
led no small tiegroo ol excitement. ,
During tho investigation that lollowed,
it transpired that the lawyer was at the .
time of his death, in possession of a sum
of money which he had for a client ; and
in i the morning of the murder, w;h la-I
king jt to Fi.iiiklinton, to deposit for tho 1
benefit of his employer. This u-oney was
missing, together wilh his gob) watch.
No doubt, of course, remained that the j
deed was yerpet rated by a highwayman, j
But notwithstanding several suspicious
persons wore arre.-ted, nothing was es-

It was a matter of dou bt whether the
murder was d ue within iho jurisdiction
of tho courts of Mississippi, or (hosi of the
Stale nf J.oui-iiiua ; and the prisoner's
counsel, it was hinted, would plead this
question ot r .ii' in favor of their client.
The body of the tnutdered man was
found on tho western side o'the road, and
some I llle distance from it, and conse
quently, within tho territory ol tho State
of Mississippi. This wou'd ite testified to
by b th niy IViend and my sell ; but at
the same time it could be proven by the
appearance of the dust on ther.ad, that
the body had evidently beer, dragged
some distance, to place ivhern it was
discoveted, alter the deed had been per
petrated. The vicinity had been thor
oughly searched, as was supposei , and no
evidence ol the precise locality of the
death scene had boon detected, by which
the venue could be established. In con

guilty man would escape tho clutches of

not had occasion to pass over th i road
where it hud been perpetrated, having
transacted my bu-iness at Fraiiklinton,
through the kiudnv.ss of a friend. I!;it a
few days previous to that set for the trial
of Nevins, I found it necessary to visit
that town myself. :
I started from iny friend's plantation in.
company with several gentlemen of tin
neighnurhoo:!, so that we formed quite a
company of horsemen. As u-ual, of late,
1 was mounted on the heautilul hay.
w hich hail been the properly of the nuir
dored lawyer; ami it w.is on this occasion
that the extraordinary intelligence of'the
animal led to the complete elucidation of
the mystery of the murder. j
When we reached the vicinity where Iho'
bloody net had been consummated, tho
animal U-aw to exhibit the saute
tms of alarm he had s!

,,,,. occasion, ami at tho court homo
square, notwithstanding the horses of mv
companions evinced no signs whatever of

body of Hendricks had been discovered,
when tho horse in spite of my guidance,
dashed into tho langled thickets with nie,
and forcing his way through ths gripe'
vines ami overhanging limb's, reached the 1
mots of a huge sweet cum, when he slop- I
pod, and pawing the ground violently,'
exhibited signs of excessive agitation.
The gentlemen, as well as myself, hay-I
iniMill confidence in the remarkable in-j
telligoiit e of tho beautiful creator.), we
busied ourselves in evamining the locality,
conviuoo I th it this was the very rceim
of tho killing of his muster.
And sccli it proved ; for on o of my
companions soon picked up a largo pc-

i As I huve .aid before, the man was not
