To see deleted articles in Joomla 3.0, you must change the filter status to ‘Trashed‘.  This is where you will find the Article Trash Manager.  You can chose to purge articles from the Trash manager or choose to undelete and restore the articles from Trash.  Click on ‘Publish‘ to move the articles out of trash back into the Article Manager.
