was a recruit
brought to the
cmup of the Sec
ond oiith Caro
lniK regiment by
( 'apt Francis. Mar
ion Marion, who
the title "Swamp Vrx" went into the Rev
olution with a popular reputation, and
that of a. kind to draw around liitn lightn
ing mon. He was known lo Imj of that
stamp himself. He had volunteoted in tho
Cherokee war, and, having nwn to a lieu
tenancy, led a forlot u hone of thirty men,
where twenty-three of t !- party fell. It is
u test of a soldier's gr't v4.cn he chooses to
unito his fortunes wiih a leader of spirit
and energy, and "Marion s company,"
"Marion's regiment" aid "Marion's bri
gade," as he rose from one rank to another,
each In turn gae prool ihnt tin men who
rallied around him for hi great name
wore ready to seek glorv w it h him and not
through him, following to tlie cannon'-,
mouth whouever he led the way. William
Jasper was a sergeant in the Volunteer
company recruited by Manou, and merged
into the Second regiment when it organ
ized, with Col. William Moultrie at tho
head. This regiment owed much of its
celebrity, and alao that efficiency which
earned its celebritv, to Marion. He was
early chosen major and helped lo mold tho
organization, and one of his superiors in
the regiment called him its "aichitect."
Almost the first duty of the command
wasatFortSullian or Moult lie, on Sul
livan's island, where Jasper first distin
guished himself. The S.'eond found onlyan
outline of a fort piepared for them, but
they set to work in anticipation of an at
tack by tho British, and built up walls of
palmetto logs and sand, high enough to
afford protection for nun standing at
arms. Col. Moultrie was in command of
the work, and it was unfinished when a
btrong Brit ish lloet appeared in tho har
bor in June, 1770 Theie were about 450
men and thirty-one cannon in the fort.
Tho British had eight MselN mounting
jibout 300 cannon, and gave their first
blow to Moultrie, because it commanded
the entrance to the harbor The spirit of
tho garrison is shown hvtho confidence
CoL Moultrie had in lb" lue of the un
equal fight. His fort had one unfinished
tide exposed (o the sea mid his ammuni
tion was short, and though Gen. Lee,
tho American eommnnder at Charleston,
wished to hae it abandoned as lk'ing only
a "slaughter jkmi." Moultrie insisted on a
fight. When the foimidable ileet ap
peared and wmio one mud that the foifc
would be "battered down in a half an
lour," the oolonel said t he garrison ould
then fight on "behind the ruins."
Tho battle begun nt 10 o'clock in the
morning and raged all da v. Over twelve
hundred shots were luvd at the fort, but
tho ofticep and men Mood coolly at their
work, doing terrible execution on the fleet.
Moultrie was the advance guard of tho
liarlwr and t he hoe of Charleston On tho
IliigstafF had liet n placed the first Revolu
tionary banner ever hoisti in South Caro
lina. Jt waved proudly oxer the brave
mon of the Second in the fight until a Brit
th shot cut the statT the tall mast of n ship
and the flag fell out ward onto the beach.
.Taspor, of his own accord, resolved to le
Btore the banner for the hope and encour
agement of the patriots nt a distance, who
would wateh, with trembling hearts, the
"ate of Moultrie and Its standard. Ijeap
jik the rampart, he inn along the beach
nnder fire the whole length of tho fort,
pit the Mag from the prostrate mat and
prepared to nvstorc it to jiosition. Just
(ihovo where it fell there was an embrasure
(itli a cannon at work The captain of tho
Wittery, Horry, wa watching Jasper, and
(hen he called for a onge stall from tho
cannon gave it to him The bravo ser
geant, still under file, lmuud the flag to
iho stiur with cords, climbed up the ram
pait and iled the standard in the sand on
a bastion wall facing the fleet and in full
iew of tho wholo hathor This done, ho
nimbly bounded over tlic wall into tho
f rt, greeted by t lie cheers of his comrades.
The day following the battle, w hieh was a
thundoringAmeiicaiiMctoiy, the governor
of South Carolina united the fort, and

fiword and presented it with thanks in tho
name of the country.

n these guernlla ecursioua. In many an
ncouuter, single handed, he spared his
oenian rather than kill him, preferring,
is ho wiid, "to let them get off."
On one of his scouting trips Jasper had
the adventure at the spring which gave
liim quite as much celebrity as did his ex
ploit at the fort. The British held Savan
nah and the Amencans were around it,
the Second regiment tying up the river at
Punsburg. In the British camp at a
place called Ebenezer, Jasper had a Tory
brother, and one day he boldly presented
himself to him with the statement that he
had ceased fighting for his country, yet
"had not the heart to fight against her."
Hero ha remained until he had secured
valuable Information, and then returned
to his own camp. Soon afterward, in com
pany with a comi'.de, he revisited his
brother, and on this trip he saw a. party of
prisoners who had turned coats from Tory
to patriot. The men prisoners had borne
arms in the British service for a time and
then deserted, for which the punishment if
caught was death. The unfortunate pris
oners were now on the way to Savannah,
the British headquarters, for trial. One of
them, an American by birth, was secured
in chains and wits accompanied by bis wife
and child a mo-t touching spectacle, for
all believed that the man was on his way
to the gallows, a martyr to his principles.
When the prisoner left camp under a
guard of eight men and two officers to
march to Savannah, Jaspor and his com
panion set out in another direction, and by
rapid traveling made a wide detour and
secreted themselves near a well known
spring, just off tho mam road, where it
was believed the party would halt for
water. A halt was indeed made at the
roadside, and the guards stacked their
muskets, two armed men only conducting
the prisoners to the sprr-g. The place was
not far from the British outpost, of Savan
nah, and was in fact on territory, nominal
ly at least, controlled by Jasper's enemies.
Thoso factn rendered the guard confident
and less wafchful, and though the imme
diate work of rescue w.is rendered simpler
by the attitude of the British soldiers, tho
deed was on the whole extra hazardous.
There were ten armed men to be over
matched by two who weie unarmed, and
in case of temporary success tho rescuers
must make their escape through hostile
regions hampered by a band of prisoners.
The two British soldiers who went to the
spring leaned their musKcts against a tree
while they filled canteens for themselves
nnd their comrades at tho roadside. Quick
as lightning Jasper and Iils fellow rushed
out and seized these two muskets and shot
down their owner". Then, without wait
ing to reload the pieces, they dashed upon
tho main body of British and before these
could realize the danger two of them had
been fulled by the clubbed muskets of the
bold assailants, and in this way tue latter

One of the honors conferred on the Sec
ond regiment for the gallant defense of
Moultrie had been a stand of colors pre
sented bv a lady patriot with the hope the
men would "stand by them as lout: as they
can wave m t he air of libert." The Hag
remained with the regiment, but the long
ieignot quiet which the Chariest own vic
tory of 17iti brought to s!utli Carolina
gave it no higher mission that to float over
a quiet catnip B'ltwhen the French ally
Admiral IVEstaing sailed with a powerful
fieet to the Georgia coast to assail the
British in Savannah, the American troops
at Punsburg approached that city and
began a siege After a protracted delay of

walls and blazed away in tho verv faces of
the assailants and a w uttering cross fire
swept along the ditch. A lieutenaut and

NEWS AND NOTES FROM SECM3T
A. Brief IJeiume of the Condition of tht
Improved Order of Red Men, and I'or
traits of Two of the Uish DIguitarler
of the Older.
Not long ago The Detroit News pub
ished an interesting article on the historv
and progress of the Improved Order of Red
Men, the oldest fraternal benefit society o!
American birth. According to The New.s
the society dates its existence back prior to
the early days of the revolution, its full
Drganization, however, not being effected
until 1S12, when its objects impressed
themselves favorably upon tho soldiers
stationed at Fort Mifflin, on the Delaware
river. From there it spread until camp
fires hav c been lighted in every portion of
the American continent.
Pennsylvania is the stronghold of the
order, having 235 tribes with a member
ship of 24.300, the increase being 23 tribes
ind 1,737 members in the past year. Mas
sachusetts follows Peunsjlvani.i in point
of membership, having 13,500, followed by
New Jersey with 10,300; New York, C.SO0,
Illinois, 3,2GS. Michigan has 17 tribes with
n membership of 1.200, showing a slight
reduction during the past year. The total
membership is about 100,000, showing an
increase for the jcar of fully 10 per cent.
The officers of the Improved Orderof Red
Meu are Charles C. Conley, of Philadelphia,
great chief of records; Fred G. Adler, of
Jackson, Mich., past great sachem and
present great keeper of wampum; William
Koch and Henry Po )le, of Detroit, both
past great sachems of Michigan.
