Hapton'S Return from Wash
It was our good fortune to be in
Columbia on the occasion of the
grand ovation in honor of Governor
Hampton, on his return from Wash
ington. Arriving the afternoon be
foro, signs of preparation were to
be seen on every hand-everybody
was interested in the much-talked
of event, and all who could lent
ready hands to help crown it with
success. In rear of Dr. Jackson's
new quarters-his friends in New
berry will be glad to know that he
has made a profitable and excellent
change in moving two doors next
the Wheelerlose-a lively scene
was presented. Here a score or
more of ladies were engaged in de
corating the stand in front of Caro
lina H1, from which the hero
Governor, whom all delighted to
honor, would tell of his mission and
its success, and the honors shower
ed upon him during the triumphal
journey there and back. But we
have not space to dwell on the in
cidents, the enthusiasm, the work
of preparation during the interval
between then and the time-three
o'clock Friday-when the special
train was expected in with its dis
tiniguished passengers. At 2 o'clock
the grand escort of rifleclubs in
their neat and appropriate uniforms
and glittering arms, the Steam Fire
Companies drawn by spirited but
*trained horses, the Artillery Club,
Thompson's Cadets, the elegant and
handsomely decorated coaiches,some
filed with citizens, others prepared
for those who were yet to fill these
* laces in the picture, the charging
aids and marshals, the whole headed
b~y the splendid Post Band, all made
up e. grand panorama such as had
not been seen at the Capital in
years. As it moves up Main Street
under drooping flags and in view
of thousands of waving handker
chiefs in the hands of the ladies,
with music and cheer making the
air a melody of inspiring sounds,
we note some of the street decora
tions: The Grand Central Dry
Goods house of McCreery & Bro.,
was the centre of attraction and
presented a beautiful and varied
display, with its bright banners,
waving standards and fluttering
flags. In the centre were two hand
some banners, one bearing the mot
to, "Redeemed, thank God," in large
embroidered, silk letters, on a
ground of rich gold and satin dam
ask, with heavy gold fringe. The
other was a Celtic motto, "Cead
Meilla Faltha," in crimson silk let
ters on an emerald ground with
gold border, on either side of these
stood the noble old palmetto paint
ed white with a back ground of
crimson satin damask. In one of
the large windows a beautiful silk
flag in red, white and blue was sus
pended, in the other a large walnut
frame bore the name of Hampton
artistically arranged in double rows
of plain pearl on a ground of deli
cate blue silk velvet. Surmounting
all the National flag floated in the
breeze. Nothing was spared that
patriotism could inspire or ingenui
ty produce to make this house do
honor to the great occasion.
Such portion of the immense
crowd of lookers-on in the streets
as was not drawn by the martial
strains of the Band to take up the
line of march to the Depot, bestow
ed themselves as best it could where
it could see and hear the Governor
relate his late experience. House
tops, windows, balconies, boxes,
awnings, trees were filled with
other thousands on the ground who
waited the booming of artillery
which signalled the arrival of the
Governor and his escort. .Not un
til 4 o'clock was this made, and soon
thereafter the head of the column
loomed in sight heralded by mar
shals and the sound of music. Ar
rived on Main Street, in front of
Carolina Hall, the military drew up
in line, and as the Post Band play
