IJSTORY OF MT. ZION SOCIETY,
And the College Established Under its I
Auspices in Winnsboro, S. C.
(B~ }I)/. IR.31McCreighkt, Publi'ihe~? in

1784. It appears that the
committee were disposed to
abide the time asked by Mr.
McCaule to consider the proposi
tion made to bim to take charge
of Mount Zion College; but in
the mean time, further correspon
dence was carried on with him
on the part of thm committep.
On the 9th of May, 1784, in reply
to a letter from Gen. Winn, Mr.
MeCaule, writing from Rowan,
N. C., addressed the General as
"Sir: Yours by Maj. Ellison
arrived this morning. Being
just about to set out for church,
I have only time to acknowledge
the honor of Major Ellison's
waiting upon me, and of your
very polite lettler.
I shall use every exertion to
attend at Jackson's Creek on
Sunday next. Maj. Ellison in
vites me to lodge with him on the
evening of that day. Soon after
i that I shall be ready to enter
upon particulars respecting
your Academy. Should I not
suit you, or the place not answer
my wishes on inspection, I will
not ho'd the committee long in
suspense. Should I accept o
the appointment, my' few and
small talents shall be devoted to
iour service and that of the
Muses in South Carolina.
I have the honor to be, &c.,
T. H. McCaulb.
The appointment made by Mr.
McCaule was unfilled, and on the
17th of May he arrived in Winns
boro, the committee meeting
that day to hear'his final decision
as to accepting the control of the
College. On that day lie ad
dressed a note to the "President,
Wardens, and Members of the
Mount Zion Committee, viz:
"Gentlemen: On the 19th of April
I was honored with an appoint
nent in a letter dated Charles
ton under the signature of Messrs.
Hutson, Tate, Huger, Pinckney,
d Winn, a committee of Mount
Ziou Society. I hereby beg
leave to signify my acceptance of
the said appointment on con
dition matters can be adjusted
agreeable to you, gentlemen, and
your most ebedient humble sur
T. H. McCaule,
Winnsboro, 17th May, 1784."
further to give some history of
the Rev. Thos. McCaule. The
difficulties of securing the services
of an efficient master of the Col
lege, induced the Society and the
Committee to make haste slowly
in their selection. Tihis fact will
be more fully appreciated when
we reflect how few in the coun
try fhen enjoyed the advantage
of either a professional or liberal
education. For many years the
opportunities of receiving such
education were to be found no
nearer than the College of New
Efforts were made to establish
a first class school in Charlotte,
North Carolina, many years be
fore the Revolution, but twice
did the King by proclamation
repeal the charter granted for the
purpose by the Colonial Legisla
ture. After the Revolution had
commenced, however, better suc
ees3 attended such efforts. In
April, 1777, the Legislature of
North Carolina grantsd a charter
to the institution formerly called
Queen's Museum under the new
name of Liberty Hall Academy.
.Fifteen trustees were named,
ai-ong whom was the Rev. Thos.
f. MNcCaule. This divine was a
~radnate of the College of New
Jersey, as appears in his prop
osition to the Society, when
about to accept the chief manage
ment of the College. Scarce of
the medium height, of a stout
frnme, and full body, of dark,
pit icrg eyes, a pleasant coun
tenance and winning manners,
with a fine voice, he was popular
,ohas a preacher and as a man.
.'ublic-spirited, he encouraged
the :Revolution; and in the time
of the invasion, went with his
flock to the camp: and was be
ide General William Davidson
when he fell at Cowan's ford,
ga Ulauily resisting the troops
un, l.r Lo4rd Cornwallis. Of so
mfut K# repo~'ts was he, as a public
spir. ted mn. n, that lhe was, once
rn f >r the~ Governor's chair, and
faied in the election by a very
Apph cation was made to Mr.
Fuller tr , weeuire his service as a
tutor. lisa repig by letter has
already ba en'given. Subsequent
ly he camek to Winnsboro him
self. But ~a the mea.n time the
Secretary a f the .commihtee was
directed to' 'write to tfhe Society
i Charlestoi to miake particular
inquiry into Mr. Fuller's dhirac
ter and abilittos a a tutor." At
the following neeting the Secre
tary was dire ct ed to write to the
Society inform ing them that the
committei (did :2ot think Mr. Ful
ler a proper pe:-son to be employ
ed as tutor, for the committee
+1 .mnevan had seen him. The
bjection to him, whatever it
was, does not appear.
It was at this iceeting, May 17,
that an election was held for
offices of the committee for the
ensnin- year. Col. John Winn
was made President; Burr Harri
son, Senior Warden; Kemp Stro
ther, Juanior Warden; John Wood
ward, Treasurer; David Evan.
Secretary; and Benj. Harrison
and Wm. Owens, Stewards.
With a fair prospect of placing:
Mount Zion College under able
management, the Society set it
self to the task of preparing for
the tccomimodatioi of the funnflilty
and the students. Thi-emisted
in repairing the old, and rnising
new, but teupoi u ry P bu Id ig.
The original des:gn of er.ceting a
college building coIIIIIe;Iurate
with the purpose of the Soeiety
had not been ab.-ndoued, not
jwithstandii g the low state of the.
funds in tle trt asury as well as
in the country.
The largo experiences of Mr.,
McCaule caie in very oppor
tunely to assist in the necessary
preparations, as will appear i
(To be continued.)
Like Finding floney.
Finding health is like finding
money-so think those who are
sick. W.hen you have a cough,
cold, sore throat, or chest irrita
tion, better act promptly like
W. C. Barber, of Sandy Level,
Va. He sa i s: "I had a terrible
chest trouble, cau.-ed by smoke
and coal dust on my lungs; but.
after finding no relief in other
remedies, I was cured by Dr.
King's New Discovery for Con
sumption, Coughs and Colds."

lung medicine in the world. At

Co.'s and John H. McMaster &

The Home Merchant.
"Who is the home merchant?"
asks an exchange. He is a mAn
who helps pay for the streetz on
which you walk; he helps to keep
up the church in which you and
yours worship; every subseription
paper that is passed hns kis name
upon it; be is th-e only one who
cannot afford to swindle you,
self-interest if nothing else,
would prevent this; he bears his
share of the buiden of good gov
ernment and stays with you in
sunshine and darkuess. Pastp
these facts in your eat, and then
stop and consider whenever you
a-re tempted to send away for
anything kept in your own town.

Mr. G. WV. Fow ler, of Highitowe.

while serving on a petit jury in a om'r

of Ciebourne county, Alabamia 1H.
says: "WVhile there f ate some f-resh

me cholera mnorbus in a very seer

life and senrt to the drug store for a eF

sent me~ a bottle of Chandherlaiin's Co1lie,
Cho'era and Dia rrhi wa Rem edy inst enad,
saying that be had what T sent for,
but that this medicine was so much
better he would rather send it to moe in
the fix I was in. I took one dose of it
and was better in five mrinuLteS. T1lx
