Saved From the Gallows.
A THRILLING INCIDENT IN THE CA
REER OF A NASHVILLE MINISTER.
-WHAT ANDREW JOHNSON I)D
FOR REV. JOHN S. YOUNG.
A Nashville Zorrespondent of the
Chicago Trioune, writing of our
chun.as and their pastors, relates this
thrilling':imid4nt of tihlate war:
"The second Presbyterian church,
composed mostly of Northern citizens
who have settled here since the war,
or those who have ever been unionists,
have called to their pastorate, the Rev.
John Youpg, once a brave and
daring Confederate soldier. and with
an intensely interesting history. Like
many young men of his age, born in
Tennessee, he espoused the cause of
the Confederacy, and was one of the
first to connect himself with the army.
He had the misfortune to be captured
in 1863, and was adjudged by a drum
head court-martial to be guilty. with
a number of others, of waging guerrilla
warfare. These court-martials had
but one way of dealing with such pris
oners, and Young and his companions
were sentenced to be hung. It was
nothing that Young was innocent of
the charge-~circumstances were against
him and the law inexorable. There
-were nine others condemned, but
Young was one of four who es
caped the dreadful death. Andrew
Johnson was then military governor
of Tennessee, and to him urgent ap
peals were made to avert the coming
doom. When first approached upon
the subject of a reprieve Johnson
treated Young's friends abruptly, if
not even rudely. But happily he was
soon brought to the belief that injus
tice was about to be done, came to the
rescue, and determined to save the in
nocent from their dread peril. He
acknowledged in his heart the justice
of Young's appeal for executive clem
ency, and quietly went to work to have
him reprieved by Mr. Lincoln, the on
ly person powerful to set aside the
judgments of the court-martial. It
did.not take him long to set the mat
ter before the President and Secretary
of War, and soon received positive as
surance that Young would not be exe
cuted. It was not his province to tell
what he-had done, and for two weeks
previous to the time set for the bang
ing of the men, no one knew of the
reprieve save himself and private see
retary. ~ At this time the mother of
Young, whose heart was torn with the
bitterest sorrow, became a daily visitor
to Mr. -Johnson's office, and pleaded
in the most pathetic manner, as only a
mother could plead, for the life of her
son. MLr. Johnson gave no sign, nor
let her know by word or action that
there was any hope whatever, or that
anything would avert the impending
* doom. As the timie grew shorter and
shorter, and the dread day was ap
proaching on swift wings, the motber's
grief became more and more poignant,
until .she became the shadow of her
* former self. Three days before the
intended execution she went -to Mr.
most eloquent appeals that could pos
sibly escape the lips of a good and true
woman; who would never givenup hope
as long as life remains. At this time
Mr. Johnson, as if wearied with the
subject, dismissed her and it by say
ing, "Telegra~ph to the war depart
mnent." As she left the room the
*.private secretary followed. She had
deeply wrought upon his feelings, and
worked in him the tenderest sympathy.
He could no longer witness her, grief
-and conceal from her the glad tidings
that were to turn her sorroiwinto joy,
her night into morning. When they
reached the rotunda of the capitol he
said to her, "Madam, there is hope ;
be not downcast; do as Mr. Johnson
has bid you, and your son will be
saved." In an instant her face was
radiant and unspeakable joy was visi
ble in every feature. Thanking him
cordially for the information she has
tened down into the city, sent the dis
patch, and the foilowing day received
the reprieve that lifted the burden
from her heart and saved her son from
~ -an ignominious death. At the close
of the war Young was released from
imprisonment, It then became known
for the first time to his family that it
was through Mr. Johnson's instrumen
tality that the reprieve was granted.
Mr. Johnson did many such acts of
kindness for which -he has never re
ceived his full meed of credit. It is
only since his death that such reminis
cences have come to light.
"Subsequent to Mr. Young's im
prisonment he studied for the ministry.
By diligent application he has achieved
much distinction among his brethren.
He is thoroughly liberal in all his
views, and has buried all feeling with
reference to the late unpleasantness,
eschews politics altogether, and at
S tends faithfully to the wants of his
flock, by whom he bids fair to become
greatly beloved. Certainly no one is
more worthy of their esteem."
The subject of the above interesting
sketch is a member of the South Caro
lina Presbytery, of which Newberry is
a part. He has many warm friends
in this County, who will be pleased to
read this account of a thrilling chap
ter in his history.

NEWBERRY, S. C.
WEDNESDAY, FEB. 2, 1876.
A PAPER FO.t THE PEOPLE.
The Herald is in the highest respect a Fam
ily Newspaper, devoted to the material in
terests of the people of this County and the
State. It circulates extensively, and as an
Advertising medium offers unrivalled ad
vantages. Fr Terms, see first page.
No Court at Laurens.
The Herald says that "notwith
standing the presepce of a live Judge
and Solicitor Fleming, there was no
court at Laurens." We suppose that
the presence of a live Judge was the
cause of there being no court, and we
compliment Judge Moses for the posi
tion which he took. The Herald
says that "the ruling of His Honor
if understood correctly-was that
Laurens' has no Jury Commissioner,
because the Senate had not confirmed
the appointment of N. H. Henderson,"
who officiated in the drawing of a jury
which gave dissatisfaction. The idea
Drevailed that fraud had been com
mitted, and Cols. Simpson, Ball and
Ferguson have been appointed to ex
mine the jury box. The hope is en
tertained that Governor Chamberlain
will in his next appointment select a
better man than Henderson, who is
accused .of ugly things enough to fill
Mr. Gerrymander Redivivus.
The Hoge gerrymandering trick
having proved ineffectual, it is re
commended by the judiciary com
niittee to redistrict the State in the
following manner. The counties in
italics have a negro majority:
First District-Georgetown, Wil
liamnsburg, .Darlington, Marlboro',
Borry, Marion, Chesterfield and Sum
Second District-Charleston, Or
angeou'rg and Clarendon. (It will
be seen that Lexington has been taken
out of this district.)
T hird Dis riciL-Richland, New
berry, Abbeville, Laurens, Anderson,
Pickens, Oconee and Lexington.
Fourth District-Grenville, Spar.
tanburg, Union, York, Chester, Fair
field, Kershaw and Lancaster.
Fifth District-Beaufort, Barnt
In the above arrangement we can
very plainly see the form of Mr.
Gerrymander or Salamander or b
whatever name the meandering rascal
may go. He certainly meanders about
through the State in a very curved
way to gather up radical votes enough
in each Congressional District to secure
a representative. Would it be asking
too much to let the white people have
one representative at Washington ?
How modest we are!
We have been a sorely tridd people
for a number of years. Whatever we
may have committed the punishment
has been beyond measure. The change
in our condition, social and political,
has been so sudden and so thorough,
our misfortunes have been so over
whelming, our prostration has been
so complete, that the world must
acknowledge that only a truly manful
spirit could have borne up under
them without yielding to despair. We
have endeavored by means judicious
and otherwise to regain lost fortune,
adapt ourselves to the changed con
dition of tihings, and still retain our
honor unsullied and our rights unim -
paired. We have tried to accommo
date ourselves to the circumstances
and procure a government that might
be tolerated if it was not such a one
as we desired. We have not suc
ceeded. When at last, through the
outrageous action of the Legislature,
in electing such corrupt men judges
as Whipper and Moses, Jr., the indig
nation of all decent people in the
United States has been aroused to
such a degree that there is a fair
prospect of throwing off the yoke of
misgovernment, it is but natural that
we should seize with all our might
and energy the opportunity which is
offered us. But at such moment the
utmost caution and judgment is re
quired to accomplish our purpose. It
cannot be accomplished without una
nimity of action by all those who de
sire reform and the utmost liberality
extended t.o all those who would join
in bringing about the result. We
want good government, and it is
thought it can only be brought about
by the reorganization of the Demo
cratic party. Let us, therefore, or
ganize and send men in whose judg
ment and honesty we can confide to
the connvention; buEt let them go nn.
state of liffairs it would be a grea
bluuder to hamper our representatives
who may be much more able whe1
they meet to consider the state o
things as they have developed them
selves up to that time than we can d(
now. Organize, select proper men
get a list of all the voters and thei
residences, so as to prevent fraud a
the ballot-box, disseminate informa
tion, exert yourself in all possibli
ways honestly to convince, but let u
rely upon the honor and judgment o
our representatives to do the best fo
us they can. Do not let us forestal
the platform or mode of action to b
adopted by the convention.
Registration Required by th
We copy below a very suggestiv
article from our neighbor of the Spai
tanburg Herald. The Constitutio
requires the Legislature to provide fc
registration of all electors and lik<
wise for the election of Justices of th
Peace by the people. As long as w
have an honest and judicious chie
magistrate it may make little practica
difference whether Trial Justices, ar
appointed by the Governor or justice
of the peace are elected by the peopl
In some counties-Newberry perha:
ircluded-the latter mode may b
more conducive to the administratio
of justice ; still it is unconstitutiona
As to the necessity of having a regis
tration law passed to keep the ballk
box pure there can be no doubt, an
the Legislature should be spurred an
spurred again to do their duty in thi
"Nearly eight years have passed sinc
the present State Constitution wa
adopted. The 3rd section of the 8t
article of the Constitution requires th
Legislature,to provide for the registra
tion of voters, in the following words
"'Section 3rd. It shall be the dut
of the General Assembly to provid
from time to time for the registratio
of all electors.' "
"No words can be plainer and n
duty made more imperative than th
duty required of the Legislature i
this section to provide for registratiot
and yet that duty has been neglecte
for eight years. That this neglect c
duty has been willful no one will pr
tend to deny. The refusal of th
General Assembly to provide for th
registration of ~electors is a flagran
violation of the Constitution and th
question arises, Is an election withov
registration a legal election? Thi
question is being seriously mooted an
may lead to consequences little though
of by "the powers that be"~who hay
been rioting in their supposed unlinr
ited power. If an election held witi
out registration is unconstitutiona
the present State Government, in a
its ramifications, is unconstitutional
"Whom the gods wish to destroy the
first make mad" is an old adage whic
may find its verification in the acting
and doings of the party in power i
this State. They have for three su<
cessive Legislatuires persistently re
fused to carry out the plainest provi
sion of the State Constitution in orde
to accomplish partisan purposes. The
know that the registration of elector
would make it necessary for ever
el.ector to vote at his own precinc
where registered-that it would put
stop to the fraudulent practice c
"voting early and often" at the diffei
ent precincts-that it would give oi
opportunity for challenging the righ
to regisLer and the right to vote
which would guard the ballot bo:
against many frauds now practice'
"Would it not be well for the Coul
gressional Election Coinmittee, whil
investigating Hoge's right to a seat i
the Third Congressional District upol
other grounds, also to inquire into th
question of the constitutionality o
the Congressional election held with
out the registration of electors as re
quired by the State Constitution."~
The following extract from a lette
of Vidette, the eagle-eyed and as ye
uinexpelled Columbia correspondent o
the News & Courier, is too good t
be lost to our readers:
-A MORAL BONANZA.
"It seems that the misdeeds an<
wickedness of our law makers havy
been heard outside the confines of th
Palmetto . State, and that there ar
philanthropists and missionaries in th
North who indulge the vain hope o
reforming them. At any rate, you
correspondent noticed this miorning
that immediately after the preliminar;
religious exeicises to which he has re
ferred were concluded, all the colore<
members lolled off, commenced to pee
intently into a little octavo volume
which each one of them seemed to bi
supplied with. An investigation de
veloped the fact that the volume whic1
was being so intently and universall2
peered into was called "Dymond'
Moral Philosophy or Essays upon th
Principles of Morality ;" and I hay
been further informed that the bool
was sent by a Quaker named Jos
Walker, who resides in Philadelphia
and who presented one hundred copie;
to Bampfield and Miller, the two can
ary-colored delegates from Beaufort, t<
be distributed among their colored col
leagues. , Now to see the members o
the South Carolina Legislature study
ing the principles of morality is an il
lustration of the eternal fitness o:
things which is not exhibited to th<
world more than once or twice in
century, although I am somewhat at
loss to understand the distinction thal
t members of the ring beyond the re
motest hope of reformation, even by
'Dymond's Moral Philosophy.'"
The above named Quaker may be a

FoR Trk HERALD.
The Legitimate Object of Party
MR. EDITOR:-It is the principle of
representative government that every i
citizen have indirectly a part in ad- 1,
ministering the political affairs of State, e
County or Municipality. The main I
object of party organization is to nomi- a
nate men for public office who repre- 1
sent their views and sentiments in sef
erence to the administration of public
affairs. Men have to agree upon some
great general principles common to
i them all and merge all minor differ
ences and unite upon some man or
men to represent those common princi- L
ples in their stead. If the votes were y
not centred upon some men a combina
tion of the bad and unprincipled would a
soon upset government. It becomes, s
therefore, the duty of every one who has r
his country's good at heart to discard t
all private malice., divest himself of all t
prejudice and assist in electing the man
who by his nomination is supposed to
represent that common principle. This
requisite of party organization has,
however, its limits. It must not go to
the extent to endorse every man just
because he is put forward by a com
mittee and made the nominee of a
party. The committee or conventiop t
should nominate such men as by their
character for honesty and judgment
would make it morally obligatory upon
a member to vote for him.
These remarks are prompted by Art.
S8 of a proposed constitution for Demo
Scratic Clubs which we find in the col
bumns of the Anderson Intelligencer, and
which reads as follows:
ART. 8. That the members of this Club
pledge themselves to each other and to
the Democratic party to abide by and
sustain the nominees of the party for all
offices, whether National, State, County
or Municipal, and will discountenance
every effort on the part of individuals to
distract our counsels and divide the vote:

his title to be called a freeman to be

-any man or body of men might pro- I

demoralizing; save us from it, In

MR. EDrroR :-I notice thzt "Citi
zen," in his brief communication last
week in reference to the question of t
more light, or rather a lamp on one of
the intersecting corners of Friend and
Cadwelr streets, says that such a con- I
surjmation will "meet with the re
sponsive sentiment of those attending
divine worship at the evening sei-vice of
the Baptist and Lutheran churches."
Now, sir, I desire to know if he only
wishes visitors to those two churches
benefited, and not those who attend
the Methodist church, close by. Does
he mean to imply that the former love
light more than the latter ? Does he]
think that only the two churches
named are open at night ? If 'Citizen"
lives anywhere in the neighborhood
he must certainly be able to tell that
night service is going on if not by
the sound of bell, at least by the basso
profundo of one of the main stays of the
choir, who sends the vibrations of hisF
voice even beyond the limits of the
illuminating rays of that lamp which
