To tke Editor of the U nion-Rerald :
We request a place in your columns
that we may deny, in most solemn
oi-m, the false and infamous charge of
muer-brought out against us by the
men who confess under oath that they
did the bloody deed. The mnen who
have instigated those wretched crimi
mais to accuse us of having conspired
-with them in the cold-blooded assassi
nation, of Dr. Shell, in 1868, have
their own blood dyed red with the
blood of the innocent, whom they
-slew. for their political opinions.
Dr. Shell had never inflicted any
injury upon,us or upon any of our
kindred. We had no motive to seek
hiA life. Those who know us best
will admit, unless blinded by political
hate, that there has never been any
thing in our conduct to justify the
conclusion that we were capable of
plotting the assassination of a fellow
man. Hunted and persecuted as we
were for years in Laurens county,
~olely because of our political opinions,
'and well knowing who were the leaders
in1' that persecution, if we had been
-capable 'of seeking our revenge along
the path- of the assassin, those leaders
Swould not be living to-day to instigate
this most malignant and groundless
charge .against us, which rests alone
upon the statement of the avowed
principals in the deed of blood.
We shrink from no judicial investi
gation, and stand prepared to meet
nur accusers face to face in the courts.

Leaving the business portion of
Greenjwood behind,and advancing into
the interior, we found that a large pro
portion of the dwellingys are built in
handsome modern style. with consid

effect is very pleasing. Most of the
dwellings, too, are rendered very at
tractive by handsomely laid off gar
dens, in which the most beautiful
flowers are displayed. The water
is the purest and coolest we have
ever found outside of a mountain
country. It is no wonder to our mind
that with so many natural and arti

there had been no reciprocity of feel

and a quick observer; he saw in front a

FoR THE HERALD.
Camp Meetings had their origin in 1799, in
Kentucky. Presbyterians and Methodists
were united in those meetings in their com
mencement. At one meeting in Kentucky,
it was estimated that twenty thousand were
in attendance, and several hundred were con- 1
verted to God. Those meetings (for the most
part) were soon left to be carried on mainly
by the Methodist Church, many of whom
have ever regarded them as a means of grace,
which should not be given up. There is a
philosophical reason for their continuation. 1
All establishments have their great occasions
for the purpose of exerting an influence upon
the masses. Colleges have their Commence
ments. Political associations have theirgreat
occasions; and the Church of God under the
Jewish dispensation had her feasts which
called the children of Israel to Jerusalem to]
spend' several days together. The feast of]
Tabernacles, was an occasion when they
dwelt emphatically in tents. The church in
this day must have extra occasions-of these
let the camp meeting be conspicuous. The
philosophy of camp meetings is equally ob
vious when we consider the advantage of
protracted devotion to God in the use of
public means, rhe ordinary services of the
church are interrupted by frequent intermis
sions. The mind jaded and perplexed with
worldly interests, hardly gets fixed on the
subject before it must be diverted. Th is sug
gests the reason why the Jewish feasts were
exitended to such lengths. Infinite w-isdlom
saw that it was necessary to extend those
feasts in order that minds dead to religions
interests, might be held in contact with bet
ter spirits; listen to the law and be drilled by
protracted effort. Camp meetings like those
feasts, abstract us from care and conflict
about temporal things'for a time, and place
u.s for days together in contact with the
means of grace, which invariably results in
good to a greater or less extent. For camp
meetinas will bring together many christian
spirits; those possessed of divine or religions.
influence, and such as are well -informed in
the science of salvation. They delight to
talk of the knowledge and love of God; to
sing praises to God and tell of His goodness.
Thus an influence is exerted upon the sloth
ful professor and the impenitent, which.often
results in the improvement of the one and
the conversion of the other.
Camp meetings are remarkably adapted to
the conversion of sinners. That sinners are
convinced of sin, and the necessity of be
coming pious, under ordinary training, is
true; but then they are hindered often by
circumstances. One hindrance is their rela
tion to unconverted persons. They are con
nected in business (or otherwise) with per
sons wh osa influence is against religion. To
change their course under the circumstances
would expose them to persecution. Here is
a difficulty, which taken in connection with
the frequent apathy of the church, is quite
sufficient in their judgment to deter them
At the camp meeting these impediments
we in part removed; while under the con
stant infinence of the word of life they are
brought to yield, although'they had resis ted
all ordinary means previously employed for
Hundreds and thousands now in Heaven
received their first religious impressions, and
were converted to God at camp meetings.
These, such as are now living, are not all
found in the Methodist Church-but many
of them are found connected with the differ
ent branches of the Church of Christ in the
land. Many of our own Ministers, and some
in other religious persuasions, were brought
to Christ at camp meeting. We know there
are objections raised against camp meetings,
and there are objections raised against many
other things. Says one objecter, they are
occasions of evil. We know that many
wicked people attend them, and sometimes
behave badly! But before we condemn
camp geetings on that account we should
remember that these persons were wicked
before the meeting w.as appointed, and would
have been profane anywhere else; they float
together on any and every occasion, whether
it be a religious occasion or not. The only
difference the camp meeting makes with
them is, it changes the scene of their crimes,
and in some respects the nature of them.
But camp meetings are not responsible for
their conduct, and will not be implicated by
It is no new thing for the enemies of God
to disturb his pe~ople. In Job's day it was

Will politicians abandon mass meetings
because people do wickedly in many instanees
on such occasions? Shall there be no courts?
Shall we have no sale-days because ikople at
such places commit sin? Shall the ballot-box
be given up because some men use improper
means to secure their election? No, says
every thinking mind. Then why condemn
camp meetings because some go there to
display their ignorance and folly! If the
abue of camp meengns be a valid argument.

ion of Sullivan's Island Point, near
which the starting judge, Mr. E. 0.
Rall, .had anchored his boat, the "Old
Buck." The terminal judge, Dr. J. Y.
DuPre, took his position at the north
vest corner of the wharf, whence an
[maginary line struck a stake surmount-1
d by a white flag, on Crab Bank--the
listance to. be run being one mile. At
3.37 o'clock a gun from the starting
oat announced that the three White
aall .boats were in motion. On they
same, the crew of each boat bending to
;heir oars in fine style. Soon a cheer
inounced the arrival of the winning
oat on the line, succeeded by another,
md then another, as each of the con
;estants reached the goal in the followv
ng order: The "Corsair"-time, 7:20;
he "Eulalie," 8; the "Maggie,"i 8:4.
very youthful cox wain, Willie Royall,
uided the helm of the winning craft;
sir. E. H. Mazyck that of the second,
md Mr. J. S. Mitchell of the Maggie.
When all worked so well and so
2arly even in the friendly emulation,
iscrimination is not so very pleasant,
ut as cheer upon cheer died away upon1
:he waters, the Doctor announced the
result, followed by a neat speech, in
yhich the participants were highly
omplimented upon the proficiency ex
aibited by them, and the pleasure thus
rfforded the spectators.
No golden guerdon held out its glit
ering bait to tempt their powers, but
;heir only reward wvas the pleasant ex
ibition of friendly rivalry in the noble
md exciting art of water craft.
A pleasant feature of the entertain
ent was the presentation of a cham
pion flag to the Corsair, and another to
he Eulalie, from some of their fair
~riends and spectators.
