BAH) IN PENNSYLVANIA.
An Old Time Letter From a Gal
lant Confederate, Now De
ceased, to His Obtain.
BEAR ADVERTISER: In looking
over a batch of old letters written
daring the war between tne States,
I find one from a dear friend, a
good and Christian gentleman,
Creo. M. Grafton, who belonged to
the Edgefield Hussars, and yhen
that company re-organized in May,
1862 it took its, place as Co* I in
the 2nd S. C. Cavalry. The follow
ing is a copy of the letter, which I
guess, will interest many of your
readers. , J. J. BUNCH.
CAMP NEAR MARTINSBURG, VA., j
October 17th, 1862. . j
DEAR CAPTAIN : As I have, not
written to you in a long time, nor ,
haye not received.one from you in
a good while, I have concluded to
write you a few lines in this fas: off
country, although I expect that it
will be a long time before it will
reach you, as we are so far from
railroad communication that it
will take almost an age for a letter
to reach home, or reach here from
I have just returned from a trip
over in Pennsylvania and Mary
land around the enemy's lines for
the purpose of capturing horses.
Gen. Stewart with a detail of 175
men from each regiment in the di
visions (except|Cobb's Legion and
Jeff Davis's Legion) crossed the
river on Friday .morning at the
McCoy's ferry, about 12 or 15 miles
from Martinsbarg after surprising
and capturing some of tho enemy's
pickets, killing one of them. We
kept" skirmishers out in front to
prevent being ambushed or being
fired on by bush-whackers, making
for* the Pennsylvania line, when
we commenced pressing in horses,
taking them from every side, and
from wherever we could find them.
About 3 o'clock we reached Mer
oersburg, our advance being a mile
or so ahead, in which place the
citizens were very nearly scared to
death at our Budden appearance
among them. We did not remain
riere long before we commenced
pressing on further in the direc
t'ioa of Cbambersburg, turnpike,
and in crossing through St. Thom
astown before we reached Cnam
bersburg, our advance was fired
into- by the Home Guard of the
place from the windows of the
houses, but nobody was hurt.
. Pressing on we reached Chambers
burg about 9 o'clock Friday night
when we sent a flag of truce de
manding a surrender of the town.
After unlimbering a piece of artil
lery on the place the surrender
was acceded to by the mayor, au "
we stationed a provost guard, wi
headquarters at the railroad dejpot
where the public stores were.
.There were about 200 r:>en und
^rms when they surxendere
..hom we paroled immediately.
Next morning we commenced
plundering the publico property
- wnich were quartermaster's stores,
such as overcoats, hats, boote,
pants, drawers, socks, shirts, ord
nance stores, embracing muskets,
pistols, sabre belts and am mun i
- tion of every kind, among it a lot
captured from Gen. Longstreet by
V the Yankees over in Maryland,
which we recaptured and burnt. 1
being one of the provost guard got
nearly everything I wished-five
pistols, two overcoats, two pairs
pants, five canteens, pair of boots,
hat, haversack, two blankets
which I divided among those of
our company who were not so for
tunate as I was. We then burnt
up all the stores that we could not
^^^arry &way, a large lot of leather
^9Bng among it. All, I suppose,
_?X5th about $500,000. We could
^"^.<oi?ar the bursting of shells and
other ammunition a long time
after we left the city, when we
made for the Maryland line, press
lng in all the horses that we could
get until we got into Maryland.
We passed : through a town in
two miles of the line of Penney!
. vania called Emmett s burg, where
we met with a most enthusiastic
reception. The inhabitants beiug
hot secessionists, giving us bread,
cakte, etc., to eat while passing
through the streets and cheering
We then pressed on riding as
rapidly as possible, changing the
artillery horses every two or three
' hours, as we 'were in very great
danger, as the Yankees camp was
Tjsry close to us. We passed within
Uro miles of some 2,000 infantry
n?ar Woodboro Maryland, and in
eight miles of Frederick City
where there were 30,000 in camp
We reached Hyattstown about 10
o'clock Saturday morning within
- two o* ?bree miles of the river, and
here Gen. Stewart showed his gen
eralship. The Yankees tried to
get in our rear when we were go
? ing down to the river to cross, but
Gen. Stewart had a road cut
through tne'woods and were right
On. them ia their rear, causing
, them to skedaddle in a hurry.
. Our regiment being in the rear
(it had occupied the advance all
?be time in Pennsylvania] were
close pressed by .the .Yankees, but
Hart's battery kept them in check
ttptil we crossed the river, when
wo had . a . battery planted on
this side to command the ford and
thus enable our artillery and the
rear guard to cross over safely
On the Virginia side of the river I
felt safe, and we went near Lees
burg and camped for the night.
While we were at Hyattetown
we captured a Yankee sutler and
his.goods consisting of eleven bar
rein of sweet crackers, two barrels
of herring aud a quarter barrel of
mackerel, which we disposed of
after we crossed the river, as we
had not had much to eat on ' the
rout except at Chambersburg
where we got plenty of butter,
crackers, preserved fruits, etc.
Next day we got to about 15 miles
this side of Leebburg, where we
waited toj cook some rations and
feed our horses. Next morning,
Tuesday, we started for camp, but
had not proceeded far before we
heard that' the Yankees were . ad
vancing on the Leesburg and Win
chester turnpike from the direc
tion of Aldea, but we soon found
out that it was nothing but a
scouting party of about 40 Yan
kees, but we arrived too late to
cut them off. We then arrived at
our camp near Marti?sburg Tues
day night. Our horses and our
selves very much iaaed and broken
down. My horse stood the trip
fine with the exception of a sore
back, which I intend to cure up by
resting him a while.
One of Capt. Lipscomb's com
pany captured five very fine field
glasses at the Yankee signal sta
tion on the other side of the river
near the picket station, one of
which he gave to Gen. Stewart,
one to Gen, Hampton, one to Col.
3utler, one to his Lieutenant, a d
one he kept for himself. Al .>
pether it. ?vas ojie of the most suc
cessful trips, or raids, if jzu choose
io call it such, that has taken place
during the war, and reflects a great
desi of credit upon the generalship
of Gen. Stewart. We captured
about 1500 head of good horses,
of them fine one, took between 200
and 300 prisoners and did not lose
but two or three men, who were
left behind by their own neglect,
stopping to have their horses shod.
The Yankees yesterday com
menced to cross the river at Shep
pard8town below, land heavy .can
nonading was heard in that direc
tion. Our regiment was ordered
out and all the disabled horses
back on the Winchester turnpike,
about three miles this side of
Martinnburg, where I am at pres
ent. I heard this morning that
our regiment bad one man killed
from the Boykin Rangers in trying
to draw the enemy out, being sent
forward as an advance, when the
Yankees fired into them, foiling
one, but injuring no one else.
Our infantry are now engaged in
tearing up the track of the Balti
more and Ohio railroad from Mar
tinsburg and Winchester, to keep
the railroad from profitiug them
any this winter by bringing them
supplies, as we intend soon to fall
back from berti.
I am very sorry to hear of the
reverse wt have , met with at
^Corinth, Miss., though I" have not
yet heard any particulars. Hope
it is not as bad as reported, al- '
though we may expect reverses
AH the boys are well and getting1

wishes for your welfare, i remain

ABOUT POSTING LANDS.
At its last see&iou, the general
iigsembly made material chang s
in the- statutes relating lo the
posting of lands. The law is as
Section 276-Every entry
upon the lands of another, after
notice from the owner or tenant
prohibiiing the same, shall be a
misdemeanor, and be punished
by a fine not to exceed one hundred
dollars or imprisonment with hard
labor on the public works of the
county not exceeding thirty days;
Provided, That when any owner
or tenant of any lands shall post
a notice in four conspicuous places
on the borders of any land prohibit
ing entry thereon, and shall publish
once a week 'for four successive
weeks such notice in any newspaper
circulating in the county where
such lands are situated, a proof
of the posting and of publishing of
such ntice within tw?lve months
prion to the entry, shall be deemad
and taken as notic conclusive
against the person making entry
as sforesai for hunting.

WRITES A LETTER
In The Southern Christian Advo
cate That Will be of Great In
terest to Edgefleid People, Es
pecially to Methodists-Shat
terfield in the Old Days.
Dear Advocate: I am ninety
?years of age and I have pl asant
recollections of you more than half
my life. Laue and Tippet were
the great men of the time when
you wero published in Charleston.
Now, my mind runs back to
childhood and the surroundings
in the oldeu time. I owe much to
a book of precious songs, which
the circuit preacher brought into
"Sbatterfieid" community. I have
a fragment of it y? t and have a
great anxiety to pee the complete
book once more, It was called the
"Sacred Songster." John 0. Jor
dan and John Morgan, of Ready
Creek Church, each bought it.
' With the fond hope that some kind
mortal will write to me and tell
where a copy may be found, 1 men
I don that it is a book of over 200
pages. Tho cxli hymn on page
153 begins thus :
"Come all ye mourning pilgrims dear,
Who're bound for Canan's land."
About 1815 to 1820 the songs in
this book stirred the religious sen
timent of the community wonder
fully, and many of them linger in
my memory yet.

three years. He was afterwards
extensively known as a rare genius
in.thewayofa preacher. Elijah
Byrd and his brother preached in
the adjoining circuit. Billy Rhodes
was a leader in the community and
church. Disorderly members were
promptly called to account by
him. He generally met the new
preacher at the next nearest church
to his own and took him to his
Molly Shellnut was one of the
best women in the church. She en
tertained the preachers often and
especially in cases of sickness.
Her cr-msel to young preachers
was highly helpful to them. As
?one was departing she laid her
j hand on his head and talked im
! passively, which he never forgot.
When he was writing her obituary
many years afterwards he said that
here was still a sense of the press
ure of that hand upon his head.
Peggy Rush played the patron
saint among the children. Her en
tertainments of large groups ??
children on Easter occasions were
her happiest days in the year.
Everybody liked Aunt Peggy. If
the preacher failed to reach an
appointment she would hold a song
and paryer service.
Amos Weaver got &. wooden
block turned ar a painted in exact
imitation o? Aunt Peggy's dyed
eggs, and won many an egg before
his trick was discovered.
The most exciting scene of my
childhood was when Randall Ram
sey stole Miss Darkiec Dorcas
suppose) Wetherton, and galloped
to the. magistrate's office and
married her before he could be
arrested. 0 ! how Miss Nancy did
amack her hands and scream when
the news was broken to her. The
negroes came running from the
fields to st? what was the matter
with Miss Nancy.
Mr. Rountree kept a country
store. Mr. Perrin kept a store at
Whithall. Fred Slappy was the
wealthiest man in the neighbor
hood. Jerry Martin was my first
school teacher. He taught Dil
worth's spelling book. Christopher
Wetherton taught at Stone Spring.
Scab Stalnaker was bailiff, and I
thought he was as dangerous as a
John Slappy's mill on Cuffytown
Creek was built by John 0. Jordan,
the leading carpenter of the coun
try. He was my father.
The Burnetts, Hardins, Hogans,
Weavers, Walkers, Moselys and
Garners wore prominent ? familes
about "Sbatterfieid." Will some
one explain why such name was
applied to a community?

childhood 1 may be remisB iu
