A NEW INSTITUTION OE
THE TERGUSON ACADEMY AT ABBE
VILLE, S. C
For a hundred years the white
'people of Abbeville country have
been distinguisned tor their
schools and their love of letters,
and i, seems that the Negroes of
the same section are to he noted
for the same commendable spirit.
In all parts of the county the
negroes have paid more or less at
tention to the securing of school
houses, and to the education of
their children. Especially is this
true at Aboeville. in 1868 the
negro Methodists built a good
school house, erected a large and
commodious house of worship, and
put up a comfortable parsonage.
In after years the negro Presbyte
rians, namely: Shedrick Lesly,
George M. Ricbey, George W
Smith, Lewis P. Ricbey, William
Pope, George Barr, Alfred Foster,
and others, under the lead of Rev.
E. W. Williams in 1881 sought to
establish a form of worship, which
woma more nearly conform to
their religious belief, and this
step induced the iurther step of
establishing a separate school.
Mr. Williams went iNorth in De
cember of the same year, and after
three mouths of labor anions the
white Presbyterians of the iforth,
succeeded in securing the sum of
1,500 which was supplemented
by 500 from the Board of Church
Ereciion in the city of New York.
This sum was further supplement
ed by sums received from white
and colored people at home.
With this money a handsome
church and school house combined
was built on a suitable lot in town.
Tue building was finished aud
opened one year after the organi
zation of the congregation. The
school was opened in January,
1882, by Mrs. Williams, the wife
ofti e pastor, who before her mar
riage had a large and extended
experience as teacher in the pub
lic schools of Washington, D. C.
The school has been thoroughly
graded, aud this year quite a num
ber of the scholars pa s&ed excellent
examinations in grammar, history,
geography, arithmetic, and other
branches usually taught in the
common schools. The daily aver
age attending at ihe school is
ab ut sixry-tive scholars. The
teacher is pnid by the parents of
the children who supplement the
amount which is received from
from the Presbyterian B'ard of
Missions for Fruedmen. This
school receives no benefit whaN
ever from the public fund, except,
at such times when the attendance
is so large that un assistant teach
er is necessary.
The obiect at first was simolv
to su-tain a small parochial school
as an auxiliary to their church,
but the sutcess of the school under
Mrs. Williams' most excellent
management has been so great
that the McClellau Presbytery,
comprising twelve counties in the
upper part of this State, has decid
ed to make Abbeville an educa
tional centre for negro children of
both sexes. To further thi3 end,
Mr. Wilhams went north again in
1885, to raise money to assist iu
erecting a school building of
larger and m re exten-ive dimen
sions which would letter supply
the demand f.r the proposed insti
tuti u. About 81,000 was, sub
scribed in the North, and it is

ry money may be secured as the '
work progresses! The building
which they contemplate will be
brick 45 x 60 feet, and will be lo
cated on the church iot. While
it is not expected to finish the
nuilding this winter, it is hoped
however that sufficient money will
be secured to cover it in, and
that by auother year the whole
building will be finished. The
foundation has been dug. A hun
dred thousand bricks have already
beeu burnt for the work.
It is proposed to accommodate
at least three hundred children of
both sexes. In the Academy there
will be a boarding and industrial
department, where children may
do something to earn their way in
the institution. Press and Banner.
Poplar Grove, Md., June 30, '86.

most energetic and thorough going
Sunday School workers we have.

an instrument iu helping to raise
fallen humanity from moral dark
ness to the glorious light of the
Poplar Grove village is very
beautifully located. The sceuery,
for miles around, as far as the
eye cair behold, is pleasiug to the
sight. The people on an average,
are in a prosperous condition, and
are not lacidng in that magna
nimity of heart which character
izes all lovers of humanity and
especially the humble disciples of
the Lord Jesus.
