A Letter From Liberia.
Experience of Clement Irons in the Land of
Charleston News and Courier.
MONROVIA, LIBERIA, W. C A., )
April 20, 1879. 1
To Morris Brown Church, the Pas
tor, leaders and Members of the
M. E. C., Rev. and Dear Breth
en and Beloved Congregation :
It now affords me great pleasure in
writing you these few lines, hoping
the church is in grood health, and all
enjoying the smile of Heaven, and the
brathen all are leading their army on
to victory. As I promised to write to
you, it now lacks one day of being
one year since I left you, and I prom -
ised to give you all the information I
could. Dear congregation, the in
crease of our chlreA is small. You
know, when we sailed one year ago,
we organized our church for Liberia,
and had on the list thirty odd mem
bers. By some bad management of
the shipping officers-(Rev. Pastor
will please let this be read in Morris
Brown and Emanuel Churches)-all
of our members nearly were put ashore
to wait the second trip, a-ad that has not
been made yet,and the majority of mem
bers that came over were Baptists, and
our church here, the members of it are:
Three out of my family, sister Sophie
Allen and her daughter, sister Susan
Grant, brother Pompy Green and his
wife and his daughter, and Mrs. Cur
tis and 1r. and Mrs. Moultrie, and
Rev. Flegler, pastor in charge, and
brother Moses Hilton. You will see by
this that fourteen of us in all came over.
We had nothing but our clothing, no
provisions, no money. You have
heard that I lost all of my provisions,
and had no money that we could use.
If all of us were together, we could
organize our church in the City of
Monrovia though few. But I regret
to inform you of the deaths since our
arrival-Sister Sophie Allen died on
the 23d of July, 1878. She died in
the faith. Brother Moses Hilton died
October, 1878. He also died in the
faith. Sister Green died April 12,
1879. Her death was caused from
from living in an open house nine
pailes out of the city. Mr. Samuel E.
Gaillard, who is a member of the M.
E. Church, died on the 13th of April,
Mrs. Grant and Martha White,
who came over as members of our
church, take no part in the church,
but have joined the M. E. Church;
though we are living in the same
house, we are complete strangers to
each other. Mrs. Moultrie is living
in a family up the St. Paul's River
with Mr. Goode. Sir. Moultrie is Sep.
firated from his wife, and he is living
some thirty miles up the beach.
Biother Flegler is living at Brewes
ville, some fifteen iniles. On Christ
mas day, in Brewesville, he held a
union meeting where Mr. Cartwright,
a preacher of the African Zion
Church, had come over to the African
Methodist Episcopal Church, with 80
odd members. Since that two preach
ers came over from the M. E. Church
to our church-; since that the number
has increased to over 200 members in
the country. You will see by this
that we have no members in the city
but my family, and all that I can do
is to continue my family prayers and
.to go when Iam-ealled to go, for it is
not very convebient to go in the coun
try unless gna have a canoe of your
own, and that I have not got. My
self and family are not well. I have
just been able to get about, and I
thank the Lord, brethren, by your
prayer, that I have not lost one out of
my family undergoing the acclimation
fever. The fe,er here is like the coun
try fever in America, it leaves you
with a little chill and fever occasion
ally. There is a great work here for
the church to do. The heathen are
in our midst as numerous as the
leaves on. the trees, and there is no
step taken towards civilization. They
are all the power we have; they are used
for all and every purpose. There is
no market here. Dear brethren and
congregation, pray for me and my
family. Though we are far off and
deprived of the necessary means, we
have not forgotten you, and every
Sabbath I feel as I'm on my seat in
Morris Brown Church. Dear brethren
and congregation, you must write to
me, for I have not heard from you
but once, and that was from Brother
Pugh. I have a great deal more to
say, but time will not permit. I
would have written to you before, but
sickness has prevented.me from doing
I will now give you a few lines for
the encouragement of those who are
coming over. Liberia is a good coun
try ; the land is rich and productive.
They need not come to Liberia, and
-return and say that they cannot live
here, though I am sorry to say that
three families have returned to Ameri
ca by the bark Monrovia, by way of
New York. This land is green all the
year, and you can plant vegetables
every month in the year- There is
an abundance of fruit in the land ;
coffee and casada is mostly plagted
here; the casada is the bread of the
land, and grows at all times ; the
coffee plant don't mature for three and
four years, and persons coming out to
Liberia will need everything that they
use in America. One here without
provisions and without money will
suffer. A person coming out to Li
beria with six months' provisions and
a little money, and draw his land as
soon as he gets here, and plant his
vegetables can make himself in a short
time. All vegetables mature in less
than three months, potatoes, edoes
and casada. In providing your pro
vision, it is well that all who ex
pect to come out to provide them
selves with the canned meat, for
flesh is very scarce here, and as I
not here like it is with you-in Ameri
ca. Mechanics suffer much for the
want of assistance if they cannot bear
expenses. Let all workmen of ali
branches of trade bring all their tools
with them, for they will need them
all here. When you come, come de
pending upon yourself and God, and
you will surely succeed for there is
many good mechanics here for the
want of encouragement have laid
down their tools and gone to farming.
I am only sorry that our emigrants
would not pursue this course, that on
their arrival here they took counsel
with Mr. Custer at their head and
positively refused to abide by the de
cision of the company, and now they
are settled no where, but are scattered
all over the country, some of them are
sign-posts at the corners of the streets.
Please answer this as soon as it
reaches you and let me know how the
church is prospering. My family
joins me in love to the church. When
you receive this be your own jndge in
the matter. There is no animal labor
here. All human power. Vessels
anchor two and three miles out from
the city, and they load and unload in
small boats such as we call yawl boats.
The natives carry everything here
abont the city on their heads and in
Beloved, when I gave all diligence
to write unto you of the common sal
vation, it was needful for me to write
unto you and exhort you that ye
should earnestly contend for the faith
which was once delivered unto the
Beloved brethren and congregation,

time, if the Lord be my helper. I
am your brother in the Lord.

A Revolting Outrage.
Union Times, July 25.
It falls to our lot this week to re
cord one of the most diabolical out
rages that was ever perpetrated in
this country. The circumstances
are these: Mr. A. B. Humphries and
his wife, living four miles from
town, near Sardis Church, on Wed
nesday evening left their infant
daughter, aged about 2 years and 3
months, in the care of a negro boy
named Ed. Holmes, aged about I6
years, while they went to church.
On their return the mother discov
ered that the child was very bloody
and her screams brought neighbors
to the house. Dr. Beaty was im
mediately sent for, and, upon exam
ination, discovered that the little
creature had been outraged in a
most horrible manner. As the pa
rents went into the house the negro
boy passed them going out, and at
last report was at large ; but we
think he cannot long escape the
vigilant search of the excited citi
zens who are after him. It is sup
posed to be impossible for the child
to live. The simple recital of this
most revolting outrage makes the
blood curdle in our veins.
SAvED FROM THE LYNcHERS.
Special Dispatch to The News and Courier.
SPRAnNBUEG, July 25.-The even
ing train from Union brought the
negro Edward Holmes, who out
raged the daughter of Mr. Hum
phiies last Wedtiesday, he having
been caught last night twelve miles
from that place and lodged in jail
there this morning. The angry
demonstration of the citizens in
duced the Sheriff of Union Coonty
to bring the prisoner here, and the
Sheriff of this County prudently
sent the prisoner to Laurens C. H.
via Greenville, because of threaten
ed violence here. The citizens here
suppose the criminal to be still in
the jail, but Sheriff Thompson has
shrewdly eluded their vigilance.
The community is aroused, and his
departure augurs well for the pris
oner's safety to-night. J. H. A.
Satrrday he was carried to Col
umbia and placed in the penitentia
ry for safe keeping. He was not
taken to Laurens.
A college professor once said that
"he who expects to rate high in his
class, must not expectorate on the
floor." Much of the hawking and
spitting was, no doubt, caused by ca
tarrh, which the professor knew could
be readily cured by the use of a few
bottles of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy.

A PAPER FOR 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. For Terms, see first page.
Some Minor Details of an Edu
The two chief objects of educa
tion are to impart knowledge and
to train the mind to think-the lat
ter being the more. important.
Without it a college education in a
few short years fades away like the
baseless fabric of a dream. With
it one has a foundation on which
he can build a superstructure al
most unlimited in the grandeur and
beauty of its proportions. But it
is not all of an education to know
and to think. There are minor
matters that are absolutely essen
tial to a good education. An edu
cated man must mingle with the
world; he must write and talk; he
must do these things daily. It is
highly important that he should do
them properly. Many learned men
have been miserable spellers, and
many more cannot, or do not, pro.
novnce their own language correct
ly. This does not show any lack of
intelligence. Spelling and pronun
ciation are mostly mechanical, and
any one of ordinary intelligence can
acquire proficiency in these matters
as easily as the most brilliant, if
they will only exercise proper care.
Nothing gives one the appearance
of culture so readily as exactness in
these matters. They are on the
surface, and are, therefore, always
subject to criticism. One cannot
make a speech nor write even a
business letter, nor take part in
conversation without exposing him
self to criticism on these points.
He may be familiar with history
from alpha to omega, he may be a
profovnd scientist, or a linguist,
and very few ever Linow the fact ;
but let him make one mistake in
his pronunciation or his spelling
and all his learning passes for
naught in society's estimation.
Among people of polished educa
tion a word mispronooniced has a
very disagreeable sound, and bad
spelling is abominable. Think of a
young and handsome lady sitting
down to her escritoire and begin
ing her billet-doux, "My Deer
George : I thought you was going
to write to me." If George be an
eucated gentleman and sensitive
to blunders of this kind, hau ng a
due respect for the Queen's English,
he would find it a little hard to love
this sweet creature after that as
much as before-unless she were
very liberally supplied with ducats.
She may be witty and she may be
wise, she may be domestic and
sweet-tempered and pretty, and all
that ; but he cannot help but think,
"There be ladies fair as she,
Whose verbs and nouns do more agree."
We are not drawing on imagina
tion. You meet with men and wo
men every day who have diplomas
from our best colleges and who can
not talk for half an hour without
making mistakes. You hear preach
ers in the pulpit every Sunday
preach learned and interesting ser
mons, and your ears are often tor
tured by mispronunciation. The
average graduate in his commence
ment speech of fifteen or twenty
minutes makes a dozen or more
mistakes of this character. There
is too little attention paid to this.
Teachers should themselves know
how to pronounce and they should
correct every mistake made by
their pupils. It cannot be learned
except from teachers and diction
aries. If neglected during school
days it is seldom learned at all.
The Anderson Intelligencer re
freshes its readers with the follow
"An old lady who came over into

We are glad that our correspon
dent from Pomaria has taken up
the discussion of the Public School
system. His remarks take a wide
range, touching upon the advan
tages and objections to the system
itself. A discussion of this kind
will probably satisfy the mind of
some that the system is right and
the best. We have nothing now to
say as to the wisdom of the system.
It is the system of common educa
tion in this State. It is no longer
a policy, but is an established, con
stitutional fact; it will no doubt re

ment for all time to come. Those
who do not like the system would
as well cease fretting and criticizing.
Our duty then is to get the greatest
possible benefit out of it. Ovr
remarks to-day will take a very
limited range-we intend to make
a few suggestions to this communi
Without charging anybody with
neglect of duty, without blaming
any one, we are free to say that the
free school system in Newberry vil
lage has been a failure. Has this
been unavoidable? Could we not
have got more good out of it than
we have? If so, where has been
the defect? Find that, and correct
There are in the corporate limits
of Newberry several schools, most
of them having only a few pupils.
The teachers get pay from the pub
lie as well as from the patrons.
There are too many teachers. The
children are scattered; the interest
of the citizens is diversified, some
sending their children to one place
and others to another; there is no
concentrated effort. A good school
can never be built up in a commu
nity while such is the case. If the
money that is paid out by the pub
lic to teachers were paid to a prin
cipal and two or three assistants of
a real, first-class public school the
children would~ be far better of,
and their parents would, in fact as
well as name, have a free school,
wi'ich they have not now.
The Yellow Fever
At Memphis is raging with in
creased malignity. The city is in a
deplorable condition. Nearly all
who were able to get away have
gone ; the business houses have
closed ; the supply of provisions is
short ; the leading citizens have
fled, and the city is at the mercy of
thieves and loafers to whom the
fever and the panic give abundant
means for phirdering . and for
sponging on the liberality of those
who send aid to the afflicted city.
A camp has been established seven
miles from the city, to which most
of the poor people have been re
moved. The Howard Association
is doing all it can for' the relief of
the sick ; but their means are lim

Our Washington Letter.
WAsHINGTON, D. C.,
July 23, 1879.
To-day Secretary Sherman tells the
people of Maine what he knows about
the finances of the country. Ten
years ago, to-day, called to speak in
Maine, he would have expressed sub
stantially the same opinions that the
Greenbackers of that State now hold,
and pretty nearly the reverse of what
he will say to-day. In contemplating
the poverty and distress which is in
nearly all their homes, and in devising
manns of relief, the people of Maine,
business men, have always profited by s
them. The laboring man and farmer ti
of New Englaad has grown steadily
poorer in the last six years, and Sher e
man steadily richer. He will not be t
an acceptable or profitable speaker s
At the Natinnal Board of Health t
rooms here they have reports from o
Memphis that the city is nearly de- f
populated, and that the fever must e
soot) cease there for want of material. h
This is in the first ten days of the fever S
and shows vividly the horror felt of I
the disease in that section. This is u
only one city. Others-many others, s
probably-must suffer in the same p
way before the season is over. The t
Government has most promptly fur. I
nished tents and provisions to those u
who have fled into the country from c
Memphis. There are fears of the v
fever here, based, perhaps, on the fact t
that we have acres upon acres of rotten i
wooden pavement, similar to that s
which is believed to have had an im- 1
portant part in producing the fever in I
Memphis. Though Washington is an c
exceptionally healthy city, especially o
for white people, great precautions are f
being taken. j
At the National Banking Associa- r
tion's meeting at Saratoga on the 6th, a
7th and 8th of August, briefly men- I
tioned in last week's letter, there will t
be an interesting discussion as to the e
government's system of raising its a
revenues. It will be remembered that l
Senator Beck introduced a resolution, t
a day or two before the adjournment t
of Congress, providing for an investi. 1
gation of the same matter, and that a e
very able committee was appointed to I
make the inquiry. As there will be t
able men at the Saratoga meeting who r
have, no doubt, diverse views on the t
subject, the discussion will be inter- t
esting and important. DEM. f
FOR THE HERALD. t
The Common School System of
No. 1. 1
It is now designed, in a series of
brief articles, tn discuss the "Common
School System of South Carolina.
In doing so, we shall aim at princz
pies and not at men, and be governed
only by a desire to assist towards
bringing about a greater and more
intelligent, hearty unity of action with
regard to a subject of prime iwpor
tance, but one at the same time appa
rently but vaguely understood by the
great majority of our people.
The questions now generally pre- a
senting themselves to the people with
reference to this system are something
like the following :
1st. Should the State alone support
the Common Public Schools ? or the
people, as prior to the war ?
2nd. Should a tax sufficient to run
these schools for at least 9 months
each year be levied? t
3d. Should an attendance of all
children between the prescribed limits
-6 to 16 years-be made compulso
4th. Should the State provide for a
higher course of study than that now
5th. Should there be a uniformity
throughout the State as to the time C
of opening and closing these schools,
the studies and text books, the num
ber and manner of preparing the daily
recitations, and the number, time, and
kind of annual examinations ?
6th. What is the best solution as to
the payment of divided (township)
7th. Should there be any other or
dinary country schools than those pre
sribed by the State?
8th. What are the principal obsta- a
ees to the development of these "Com
mon Public Schools ?"1
9th. What are the principal requi
sites to their full development? ?
Before endeavoring to answer the
first question above, we desire to dee
fine our position a little farther. We a
wish all classes to be educated ; but ~
care~ very little what steps may be ta
ken to accomplish this desire. Some:
are in favor of the State's educating 6
as at present; others, not. We don't
care how this may be decided, pro
vided the people come not short of an
education; but we do wish an imme- t,
diate decision and united action either a
in the one way or the other, and h dis- al
continuance of that present folly of 0
one half of our people's trying to build
up, whilst the other half tears down. 0
But, because a calm contemplation of (
the subject discloses nothing but a
lamentable failure in any other way,d
therefore, we would say in answer to
the first question, that the State alone
should support the Common Public
Schools; and our reasons for this- de
cision are mainly these :
1st. All enlightened and progressive k
governments support their schools;E
no savage, barbarous, or dead govern
ment does so. al
iould, therefore, be suppressed by
4th. These common country schools
innot and will not be supported by
ic people ; and, therefore, m*t be
ipported by the State.
We will enlarge on these proposi
ions in the order indicated. The
nly legitimate inference to be deduced
row the first one is very specially
omr1ended to the notice of those who
>ve to stigmatize our "Free Common
chool System" as "abominable."

Again, they would have us to be
eve, that a common free school sys
em with a compulsory regulation is a
ery good thing in a monarchy ; but
ot so in a repubf a like this. But
ey ignore the plain fact, that such
system is far more essential to a
epubl'ic than it is to a monarchy, for
arious reasons, to-wit:
1st. Because every man has the
ight of suffrage, every man should be
ducated. Those, therefore, who are
iming immediately at the demolition
f this "Common Free School Sys
e"are really aiming, ulteriorly, at
he disenfranchisement of the poor
nd uneducated, and at the establish
sent of that worst of all governments,
purse-proud, aristocratical oligarchy.
2nd. In republics, a universal edu
ation is the very bulwark of liberty
nd perpetuity ; in' absolute monar
hies, it is the dread of tyrants. In
ther words, education everywhere
ieans liberty ; and ignorance, slavery;
herefore, the former is cherished by
hilanthropists and patriots; and the
tter, by aristocrats and despots.
3d. In fepublics, inasmuch as every
ian may aspire to a participation in
de government, every man should be
arefully educated. Those that are
irtually aiming at a restriction of an
ducation to the rich by a demolition
the "Co-mmon Free School System,"
re really aiming, ulteriorly, at a re
riction of the offices to the same.
L a confirmation of this fact, we need
nly allude to those many acts within
de past few years and to those oft-.re
eated expressions among the better
ducated classes, substantially to the
meet, "That none shall hold office
iept the educated."
