Another Horrible Southern Outrage!
A Northern Contractor Lynched !
The victim tells his own Story.

NAanviui, TENN. 4 April 1,
WAR &LIMN :-I hasten to inform your
readers of another outrage upon the !lemon
of a Northern man—the. ;writer Icing tha
hopeless victim. It will confirm the mus.
picions of many of pout
.honest readers,
and conclusively prove "there is n screw
ooae" somewhere.
I arrived at the (3 Hotel about 6
o'clock P. M., registered my name and call
ed for a Room. After I hail arranged my
toilet I returned to the Aire and enquire.l
for ('ol. C. The clerk did not know where
the Col. might be found—was somewhat
acquainted with him, and would endeavor
to Lind Mtn. To his inquiry I informed
him 1 Lad formerly known the CoL "Yes."
wag his reply. "he is a good fellow, but 1
dont think you can see him to-night; he
is the Graml Commander of the order of
the Red C'rOss,Tind recent developments in
the Gulf detnand immediate attention he
will he engaged." I did not urge the con
versation ft.tther, but soon after went to
my room. 1t was not cold, but .lo,h. the
colored boy? hail started afire, and wanted
to-know if Massa wanted anything moo,
and addedi,l will clean youa boots, sa."
The room servants are gerally polite and
attentive tiom habit, and always expect
"gemlen" tO pay them, as well fA .1 the host,
for their attentions. I dismissed the boy
telling Liimfif any gentleman called to show
him up. In about half an hour the boy re
turned and said some "gemlen" wi',hel to
see me in my room. I bade them come
in, and soon had the pleasure of seeing
Col. C.,
or P. Capt. F. and two stran
gers whoa bore the military title of r.,,i,.
They had . heard of my arrival, came to
welcome my return—suspected I was after
a contract on their Road, and hoped I would
succeed. They would see me again . had
urgent business to attend to that night .
but I must go to the saloon with them an, I
take a punch. They would not listen to
an excuse, and my plea of fatigue only
made them more urgent in their demand.
We retired to the saloon, talked a few mo
ments over the beverage and parted, I to
my room and they where glory called them.
After reading a while, as is my invariable
custom, I retired for steep. It was near
midnight, but toe city clock announced
the parting knell of one before I elapsed
into that half non-exhistent state of repose,
when the body is at ease and the mind
roaming in fields of fancy and delights :
when the soul drinks in the past, the pres
ent, and revels in the tUture., a state I t eme
often fancied to be nearly allied to our
future spiritual existence, Or a cons sous
foretaste of Heaven itself. How long this
reverie lasted may not be known. The
mind freed from earthly thr.ililom knee -
no time or space, and—
"Fleeting eettonds Durk the rolling retr,,
Am momenta nitmenre the eternity of spheres.
But my reverie was broken by a hurried
tramping m the hall, accompanied with
language mad fierce declamations com
mon in southern hotel broils that I ex
pected two or three would fall victims to
the treacherous bowie knife .Iti tiri woul,l

-of the itiwth West passage, what was the
price of whiskey when Irish potatoes were

From the mixture of the serious and com

the whole as a joke or a serious reality. I

amusement at my expense, and proposed
to call on the drinks if they would dismiss

a dozen of them, and a convulsive shaking
of fists confirmed the fears I had endavor

A quarter of nu hour elapsed ; every

that chill. People I.4van to .tare, young
ladies to titter. I felt myself its read a. a

eye fell on the child. "Well, you're in for

Perhaps sown' of these ladies will help you
take care of it till we get to Poston," and
the conductor passed on.
As he went forward. evidently he told
the story for heads began to turn, and then
men and boys came sauntering in from thu
other cars to see the fellow that had the
baby left with 'him. Plenty of jokes were
cracked at my expense, for every now and
then Ihesull a regular guffaw. and some
such phrases as, "Precious green, ela ?"
"such a go !" "Looks fatherly !" act., etc.
I was in a rage. My blood boiled furi
ously. One minute I wanted to swear, the
next to kick every person and thing in the
car. I suppose in my passion I gave the
poor little thing in my arms a grip, !of she
uttered a quick, little cry. She stopped
in a moment, and I looked at. her. She
lay in my arms so innocent, and helpless,
and fair, and white, and looked up at me
with such complacent placidity, that some
how I felt my anger dying out in spite 'of
me—my embarrassment too.
"I may as well be a man as such a con
temptble sneak," I thought. "I was an
ineffable greeny to get saddled in this way,
to be sure, but that's my fault, and not
this poor little pussy's, and I may as well
brave it through. As for these confound
ed fools, just let 'em laugh, that's all."
So F settled myself coolly to the care of
my baby. People after a *ldle grew ao•
customed to see her in my arms, and most
of the afternoon she slept soundly.
But, oli, how basin she grew I seemed
to have a leaden weight tugging heavier
upon me. How on earth do women lug

they dot For me, I'm certain I'd rather

However, to my story. Toward night
my baby wakes! : and waked fretful and
hungry, I su►pose. She began to cry ; a
