THE WEEKLY BERALD
NEWBERRY, S. C.
WEDNESDAY MOENING, AUGUST 1$,:1865.
We are happy in being able to state, that in a
short time the dimensions of the Herald will be
again enlarged. It is a pleasure to make this
annouicemeit, it evidences a 1:beral patronage,
in subsc bers as well as adveisers. Some pre
paration has to be made before ethis enlrrgement
can be effected, but we trust it will be soon.
-We take- this opportunity to call the attentioh
of advertisers to the fact that we advertise cheap
ly; and*that our paper circulates largely through
hret "df Violence to Gen. Van Wyck.
It is a subject of deep regret, that there are
turbulent, restless spirits among us, men who,
without responsibility,' care for themselves, or
for their neighbors, are guilty of the grossest
violations against law and order, and the peace
of society. The man must be insane, who
- with the examplee of the past, and the -angers
of the present staring him in the face, wantonly,
insanely attempts or threatens that, the execution
of which would not only endanger his 'own safe
ty, but place in jeopardy the.lives and property
of an innocent community. We allude to the
threat of personal violence made to Gen-. Van
Wyck, at Chappell's depot last week. Caning
among them unarmed, on a peaceful mission, as
'their guest, if not for reasons-of great prudenlial
int'rests, should have preserved him from insult,
from the, threat of. violence-the takiug of his
Iif. We trust it was but ai idle, foolish threat
- of bragad-p ia, never. contemplated as a reality.
The party, whose names we forbear mentionipg,
_ were evidently under the influence of-bad whie
key; or it could not hive happened.. The sue
cessful efforts of the gentlemen who interfered,
and. happily preserved hafony, should prove
that law, order,and peice are the prevailing sens
timents of the community- at large. We trust
the-like will never again occur, or anything cal
culated to stir up -a spirit of discord, or animo
sity. We must remember that we havc not ta
kean upon ourselves any light obligations towards
the gowernment, (or its representative4) against
which we have been contending, and that- it is
the duty of all to pour oil upon the troubled,wa
ters,~to bear and-forbear, that -e may soon en
j%oy the blessings of that peace, which good-will
must ensure, and thn our'State:ray the sooner

'"Mr. Jay Cooke lhas just made an explanation,
of the means he employed'toobtain in one 'week
*-subscriptions to-the national loan amounting to
nearly one hundred million dollars. Tbe expla
nation,is in a single word-he advertised ! . This
explains the marvel. 'He~did nothing more ; but.
-.be did it well. He accomplished nothing that
another man may not accomrplish in his own bu

rod with which he smote the rock, an~d p erformed
a financial miracle. Business rhen should pi-ofit

* A FEW.WoRDs.-The editorial rooms of -he
Courier. are for the use of the -editors.
Parties having no busings to transact with
the editors are-respectfully requested to keep
* - -away from-the rooms.
The business apartments of the est,abiNh

We have too many loafers in the' editorial
We do not keep a grog shop.
We do:not keep' a-'circulating library.'
Our exchange newspapers we want for our
ow-n nse and convenience.
In a word, we wish it to be distinctly un
derstood that the-Courier's editorial rooms do
not afford facilities for bummers, loaters, book
worms, hangers on, pilferers of exchanges or
any other idle or useless class of the commu

"A special dispatch from Galvestoi dated the
first inst., says :Qorders have been issued to the
officers at Matamnaras to prepate accoutrements
for thirty thousand troops,.to consist *of French,
.Austrians, and Algerians. - -
The reason given for thus collecting troops is
because we have a similar number at Browns

Look at them, the candidates we pean. Can
any one fail to get a proper man out of this'good

What a good time some folks are going to have
this winter.' Acres of peaches are being con.
ve'rted into oceans of brandy, to be taken in
fernally, or rather as we meant to say, internally,
for the stomach's sake, with a small proportion
of honey, raiied. Should any tme send a gallon
of the vile stuff to this office, it is hoped a little
honey will accompany it, together with the-name
of the donor, that it may be properly labelled
and put away.
THn SPIRIT oF FREEJASONY,- an Address de

by Rer J. $aikins. We commend this address
to the Fraternity, and to tte public generally, as
worthy of ~attentive perusal. The subject s es
pecially interesting, nd ably handled, showing

-clearly enunciatgs. It is for sale by Mr. Houseal

to procure a copy. -
F.&;oas.-We strongly suspect our friend, Dr.
Gouhr, as having laid on the table editorial a sam
plc of fine chewing Tobaeco, as he is the only
man instown who has anything as good. It was
found nicely enveloped, and addressed to the
printer. If the Dr. denies it, we must-place it to
the credit of his riah hand man,.and our other
friend.over there, Jimmy Larkin.

ian'y true pariots and brave soldiers have
fallen ! Corp'l JAMEs D. SHEELY, Co. G. 13th
Regt., S. C. V., was mortally wounded in the
breast, at the battle near D'arbytown, Va,, on the
16th Aug., I864, and carried to the field infirm
ary, where he died that nights.fir, far away from
loved ones; a noble sacrifice for Southern inde
Corp'l SlrtEL was a native of Newberry Dist.,
S. C., and was in the 28th year'of his age. He
lcaves a fond and devoted wife and three small
children to feel his loss ; three sisters and a large
circle of relatives and friends to mourn his un
timely death. -He was endeared to all who knew
him, and bid fair to a long, vigorous life of use
fulness ; but, alas, he was cut down in mid-life !
He naintained ai exemplary moral character,
and was a frequen)t attendant on -divine services,
and often expressed his: fears- of the increase of
vice during the war. He died in the confident
expectation of exchanging the toils of war for
the blissful pursuits of "that 'better country."
When on the eve, of death, he expressed his wil
lingness to die in assurance of a glorious immor
tality, which is far better than the tbils of this
life, and only lamented leaving his- infant chil
dren fatherless. Though his family has lost a
fond protection and society a useful member, we
hope "Wr loss will be his etei-nal gain" through.
He volunteered in Co. G., 13th Reg. S. C. Y.,
at its formation, and served his country's cau-e4
faithfully, part of '61 on the coast of S. C., s.nd
came'to Virginia in time to. share the fighting
around Richmond, and the.campaign under Jack
son in '62,-nobly endured the fatigues and fight
ing of the campaign of '63, to Gettysburg, and
though a short time in the hospital, from disease
incurr d by the hardship of war, shared gallantly
most oT the fighting till his death, and received
hiLdeath wound b-avely doing his duty at the
post of ' danger and honor. He was a noble, pa
triotic and herric soldier, and bore uncomplain
ingly the toils and privations of cairip, the iarch
and.the dangers of battle. We miss his jovial
tales of fancied victories won, rumors of foreign
recognition, and witty repartee: so that it was
said on the I ist march, whilst camped during a
very cold night, with. good fire., by the murmur
ing Nottaway, that Sheely should be here to en
liven the cheer of carmp. We 'bare lost n es
teemed comrade, South. Carolina will treaure up
he -name of -Cerpi. J. D. Sheelf in her jewelled
casket, when she -gathers up her he;oic, fallen
sons, and wilt give his tiame a prominent place
on her scroll of honor.
Alas ! the noble and-true have fallen, .
But, it is their country demands the price.
Weep not, then loved ones for the slain
For 'tis his country's noble sacrifice. -
Cherish fondly his endeared memQry, and join
him in a brighter, better realm.
Brother, thon wast mild and lovely,
- Gentle as the sumer-breezce
'Pleasant as the air of evening,
When it ficats among the trees.
Peaceful l>e thy silent-slumbers,
Peaceful in the grave so low;
Thoa no more wilt join our numbers,
Thon no more our songs shall kno.
Dearest brother., than hadt 16ft u,

But it's God th 't hath herdft,,
