STAT OF EXECUTION.
A TALE OF TBE REVOLUTION.
In the rear 1780, alter tbe British
bad taken Charleaton, South Caroli
na, that unfortunate Slate waa over
run by British and Tories, who com
mitted horrid outraged on the defenae
let inhabitant; the Toiie being tbe
mot cruel and brutal. -
The only force the Americans had
at thia time to contend with these
blood-thirety fiend, avaa tome small
banda of patriots, led by Marion,
Sumplor and Winn. These foarlosa
sons of liberty lived in tbe woods and
swamp,, and ofiimea bad to subsist
on roots and berries; but tbev pave
tbe enemy, both British and Tories, a
great deal of trouble.
At tbe time or which I write Gen,
Sumpter, with a small band of fear
less men, eaob of whom was a sharn-
sbootor and could split the bull's eye
at one hundred yards every shot,
(their superior skill in shooting made
mem aungeroas toes,) was encamped
in a retired place on the great Pedee.
A young aergeant named Horatio
Pickens was a well-to-do-planter, own
ing a tine estate, witn good buildings.
Ild was a married man; bia wile's
maiden name was Rulledire a niece
of Governor Rulledge. Mrs. Pickens
was a lady of refinement, of a brave
turn, and, like ber husband, was
staunch Whig. Tbey had two small
children. Mr. Pickens owned a do
en slaves, a bo worked his plantation.
Uis overseer, an African, named Dick,
waa a very stoat, active man, and be
ing a good hand, bis master valued him
highly and had therefore made him
overseer, and boss in general when he
waa about. . when tbia narrative
opens Sergeant Pickens had joined
Sumpter's Tittle hand of patriots, and
leaving bis lovely wife and tender
children under charge of Dick, who
promised "marst dat be was p-wine to
defend de mistis and dechildren while
be bab one drap ob beed in hit
The gallant Sampler and his brave
little oanu oommitted Tearful ravages
on tbo enemy, the lories In partita
lar. The lories became desperate.
and as Sergeant Pickens was one of
the most daring men in tbe band.they
determined to have Mm, cost what it
might. They visited Dick, and alter
questioning the treacherous villain,
tbey loaod that be was tbo very dem
on tbey wanted. Dick promised them
dat when de boss kum borne be
would let dem no, and help dem to
ketob him." They promised tbe trai
tor in return, tbat it be would betray
nis master inev would make bira a
present of Pickens' plantation, and
give bim his freedom. Tbe prelimi
naries being settled, the fiend incar
nate set his wits .to work to betray
hi master to tbe ensmy, where he
well knew certain death awaited him.
Mr. Pickens had always been kind to
this negro, and had treated him more
ike a brother than a tlave, and Dick
n return was now coing to repay him

In the month of Jane, 1780. Gen.
Sumpter and hi brave band were en
camped as above slated ; tho rendes-
vou being eotirely unknown to the
enemy, and no one even suspected that
Sumpter was in tha neighborhood.
I be encampment was about four miloe
from tbe iiom of Mr. Pickens, and he
obtained a fnrloogh from his General
lor two day to enable bira to pay a
flying visit to Lis family. He there
fore left tho encampment after dark
and sought hi loved ones. On the
nest morning when Dick found dat
de marst was to home, be appoared to
be overjoyed, lie wished to know it
e boss would alsy home the succeed
ing night, and the master told him he
would never suspecting the negro's
treachery. Jtie wily sovaco now
asked "whore do rest ob de boys am,"
but Mr. Pickens did not tell him.
About noon Dick came in apparently
greatly agitated. lie was weeping
freely, and told bia manter dat bis
mother wai dying, and be wis hod to
now It iie could iiab Aots and- lib
erty to go and toe ber. if ia master
told him to take the best horse and
go and see her by all moans. ;
I he truilor.lolt, but instead of fro i no
lo see his mother, (who was not even
rk.) be went at spoed to a Tory reo-
czvout about ten milos distant, and
told thecsptaln of this band of cut
throats (but his BMtor Was at home
nd alone; tbat ho was going to stay
over night, and strongly urged the
brutal Tories to oome and take him,
and tbat he would be on band to help
them. Of oourse they joyfully ac
cepted the Invitation, tolling tbe be

villain now unlocked the roar door of

pocket. After this he ohuckled at his
cunning, ana tiunkma hi nlans com

so mo anxiety.
Meantime Mr. Fickena and hi lady
bad .been seated in their aummef
houaa. lie bed told bar eaaoltV whom
their encampment was, and she was
wen acquainted with the soot.
About aundown he called Dick and
gave bim direction in regard to bis
business, and bis obsequious servant
was ready and willing to do anvthinir
for "marst." Tbe sun had set. annnor

bad retired to their chamber, but bad
not gone to bed. Dick was "a settin
io do kitchen, a lookin outen de win
der, a watchin for de Tories." About
eleven o'clock Mr. Pickon hearing a
uuieo won no vne window and saw by
the light of tbe full moon that the
yard was filled with arraod men,about
tweniy-Qve in number. . lie raised
the window and inquired the cause of
at-:-!-. ; .T
una intrusion, xi o was answered by
a gruu, oruiai voice,
that be well
came from a certain Can-
tain Kaiir, a notorious Tory and mor-
derer, who told bim that he was their
prisoner, and that he must come down
immediately, or tbey would come ud
and tako bim. Tbe villain At the
same time gave bis men their orders
that they must take the prisoner alivo
and unhurt, and tbat if any of them
wounded him he would shoot them 1
their tracks ; 'for.'Vaid he."Mr. l ick-
ens has to bang on King Georee'i
Oak." The tree wa about four mile
distant, and was a favorite plaoe wit
the Tories to hang innocent men, and
already several of tbe gallant eons of
nocriy bad been executed at this fatal
spot by the savage, brutal Tories.
Mr. Tickcn answered them defi
antly, telling them to como up aad
take bun if they felt liko it. Our h
ro now whispered to bis wife and lol
her what to do. She was calm, cool
and col looted. The devils were as
cending the steps, onrsoldior prepared
to receive them. He first eiezed hii
sword, and drawing the broken weap
on, be cast it from him and seized his
pistols and prepared for action. With
wild, brutal curses the foe advanced
on bim. He snapped first one pistol
and then tbe other. , He saw. that
some traitor had been there, but he
couia not guess wno. mere was no
time to lose. He clubbed bia beuvy
pistol and knocked the first villain
down ; a second savago shared the
same fata, and the third fell tinders
fearful blow to rise no raoro. Tbe pas
sage was narrow, and be kept tbe en
emy at bay. They could easily have
shot bira, bat their orders were to
take bim unhurt, under the penalty of
ueain. out ai tnis crisis, as our bero
wss facing the foe he was seized from
behind and hurled to tbe floor by the
powerful arms of the negro traitor,
who sprang upon his master' breast
and held him by brute force until the
room was filled by blood-thirsty vil
lains, who soon bad himiocurely Jed.
After tbey bad bim secure they in
formed him that he would be hungon
King Georgo's Oak at sunrise, the
brutal Kaig telling him that God, nun
or dovil could not save him. H,

took their prisoner into the yard.
mounted bim on a home and lied him
to the atirrupa. The villains did not
even stop to plunder the mnnsion, tbe
captain telling tbem it would be time
enough to plunder the bouso aii.
tbey returned. They carried out their
dead companion and laid him under a
tree in the yard, ar.d said they would
attend to bim on their return. Now
tbey started for the oak. Dick mount-
ed a borne and went along, aa bo said,
to "see oo lun." "ihey got to the oak

which the savage Gend did in his own
style, telling bim among other things,
"dat uis ciiiio am do owner ob do place
now, an dat do proud mitlis would he
hit servant." Hut Mr, Pickens bore
his taunts without giving them the
semblanoe of attention. When the
Tory leader ordored our hero to toll
him whore Sumplor was encamped, be
nangniuy answered Dim that he held
no converse with a villain and a mur
derer. He told him hi was Iholr pris-
oner, tney coum ao witn uun as I Hoy

si. He thanked them for the rrapi'e

be would be quite ready for thorn at

meauow, tnree emo pi which were
bordorcd by a donse thicket, the bush
es being about forty- yard from the
tree. Tbe other side was opon coun
try. Aboot daylight the murderers
prepared fur the execulion. Tbey
first drow a cart under the fatal limb,
wbioh npojeoted from the troo about
fifteen foot from the ground. 1'ickcji
was now ordered to got into tbe carl
which order- be promptly oboyed, lol
ling them ho was a soldior and was
yssd to obeying ordors. It wns Almost
sunnso, and Dick was ordered to
climb the tree and adjust the rope.
The black traitor, who in his savage
glee had divested himsolf of all bis
elothing except hi pantaloons, as
cended tho oak with the activity of a
wnacat. xue piooa-inirsty demons
were now formed around tbe doomed
man. They thought ol nothing else 1
Our hero stood erect, bis due Manly
form standing above the savage crowd
io bold relief. He told them defiantly
that he did not fear them, and that
the hour ol retribution awaited tbem.
Dick bad ascended tbe tree and . Uy
(tretched oo tbe fatal limb, and look
ed like ome Imp from the reg'ons
ferno. A stout rope with a running
noose was thrown to Dick who caught
it with a demoniao laugh, bat before
the laugh had died oo bis lip he came
down from hi pcroh In a hurry, with
a bullet in bis heart, for at this instant
a ringing peal of musketry broke on
thsktill morning air, and fifteen of!
tbt murderers lay bleeding around
their Intended victim. How, with a
loud shout, twenty horsemen oame
dashing into their midst The bal
ance of the Toriea tried in vain to es
cape. It was perfectly useless. Among
lureuiust in toe coarge was a raw
bone, apat-ed boy, scarcely fourteen
years of age. This brave youth came
dashing on. shouting his l attle erv.
uis aim was for tbe brutal captain,
who seeing his antagonist waa noth
ing but a pale boy, stopped and fired
a pistol at him, but it was hia last,
shot, for in an ia instant more bis
head was split in twain by our youth
ful warrior ; and reader, tbat boy was
Andrew Jackson, afterward the hero
of a hundred fights. Tho Tories were
all down, about twenty of tbem killed,
and the rest wounded and prisoners.
ot one of tbem escaped. During
lbs melee a lady dashed into the con
test mounted on ao elegant charger
wuioo ane guided witb ease and graoe.
ana unminuiui 01 tbe wild, blood
scene around ber, she nimbly dis
mounted and in aa instant she was
landing by tbe side of Sergeant Pick
ens io the cart, wben drawings sharp
dagger she quickly cut the cruel ropes
that bound bim, and be stood a iroe
man by the aide of his beauti ul wife.
Abe victory waa complete. Aot
ons of the rescuer bad received a
scratch. The Tory captain and twenty
of bis men were dead and five were
wounded. Tbe traitor Dick lav doad
and stark by the side of tbe cart. Ur.
neb-ens now approached Gen. bump

vr.ea nira ana uis crave band to go

which kind invit lion he accepted
with a right good will. After d
t .iling a aruull guard to settle witb
the prisons., they started for the
home of their rescued comrade. Af
ter the Tories had started with Mr.
Pickons, bis lady, with tl.e aid of an
Irish servant giil, saddled thoir fleet
est horse, and iuaving ber children in
