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 wanes." 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 aa Monteith did Sir William Wallace. 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 trayer mac tney would De at tbe man sion before twelve o'clock tbat eve ning. Dick relurood borne and re ported bit mother better. During tbe PRINCIPLES! NOT MEN.

Tha villain now unlocked the roar door of tbe chamber, acd pat the key in his pocket. After this he ohuckled at his cunning, ana tiunkma hi nlans com pieie, awaitea me coming events with 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 J r iv. . . t 1 . we uver uuu air. xicaens ana sav 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 knew 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, Pickens beard all they said, ani'le.e. No one knew wbero she went. They 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 before daylight, and dismounting-1 turiiou inuir oorses loose to graze. Tbey sat abont in groups and wailed loraawn. i bey did not deem it re. quisite to place any scouts or guards. ior ney loougnt mat no oncmy was nigh, and their leader told them that Sumpter was sixty mile distant Dick bad stolen a small domnohn of nne oiu oranay irom his master, and wan ibis be treated "de gem men The coarse, brutul Kaig gave Dick liberty to taunt bis powerless master. 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 pieasea, put ne would soonor die I hundred timo than betray dis cenor- si. He thanked them for the rrapi'e ,i i. t . . . tney uau craniou uim, anu told mom be would be quite ready for thorn at sunrise. ' Tbe Oak stood in an opon 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 tor (for it was he and bis gallant boys -,nai naa come to tne rescue; and in vr.ea nira ana uis crave band to go uonie wits tbem and take breakfast, 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 cbargo of the faithful Bridget, she was in a few minules flying at the top of ber borse'a spood for Sample.' cum p.

Tom Marshall's Duel. Tom Marshall waa captain of a com pany in Col. Humphrey Martha!! regiment of cavalry in the Mexican war. One evening, when very much under the influenco of liquoi, ho went to the quarlormastcr with whom bo was intimate, and behaved in so out rsgoous a manner that the latter was oompelled to kick him out.

Few men bave oc cupied the presiding chair of tbe bois terous house with greater dignity or greater credit. Abraham Lincoln, of illinois,afterward tbe illustrious presi dent, was a member and especially friendly with Mr. Greeley. Mr. Lin coln seemed, said Mr. Greeley, "a quiet, good naturod man, did not as pire to leadership, and seldom claimed the floor. I think he made but one speech during the session, and tbia by no means a long one.

Mr. Greeley was appointed a mem ber of the committee on oublio lands. of which tbe Hon. Jscob Collamer, of v ermont, was chairman.
