The example set us by our soldiers
and dead heroes in their sacrifices on
the altar of country and home, have
taught us lessons which have inu
red to our good and helped us to live
on and hope on. From them we have
caught a love for the South, so bright
as to wake us, in the years gone by,
bear the ills and burdens of an almost
intolerable existence rather than suffer
a land, concentrated by their heroisam
and sacrifices, to become the prey of
strangers and former slaves. Their
patience, under every adverse circuw
stance, has stimulated us to endure
misfortunes with braver hearts and
sterner resolution. Their cheerful
ness amid the rude shocks of war, in
the trying absence from home, with
death staring them in the face, on the
field, in the hospital or prison cell. has
stimulated us to look with more buoy
ant courage and brighter hopes or the
afflictions of our own lives, while their
devotion to duty has been as a pillar
of cloud by day and of fire by night,
to guide us through the weary wilder.
ness of our political wanderings- It
was this devotion to duty that nerved
the heart of Barnard Bee, as he stood
a demi-god of battle amid the smoke
of Manassas; inspired the soul of
Stephen Elliott, as he walked the
crumbling ramparts of yonder sea-girt
fortress and wreathed, with beauteous
smile, the dying brow of Nicab Jen
kins, while it was reflected in glorious
colors in the lives and death of that
noble army of subalterns and privates
who cheerfully sacrificed themselves
to vindicate Carolina's honor. And
beneath the sod, in yonder hallowed
place, sleep as gallant and devoted
(your own dear kindred) spirits as
ever couched lance or rode to death.
We owe to our soldiers and dead he
roes, a debt of gratitude we cannot
repay, and accursed may we be it
we ever fail to honor their deeds or
cherish their memories, and especially
the private soldiers, who without
hope of reward, stimulus of promotion
or applause of the world, fcught on
until death sealed his devotion, or de
feat ended the c.;nquest. We had
grand specimens of distinguished offi
cers, without superior on the long
roll of fame, whose names, inscribed
on historic page, will be revered by
the pure and good'of all ages, but the
real hero of the strife, though heral
dic blazonry may not so record it, was
the poorly paid, illy-fed private soldier
of the Confederate army. And ten
derest emotions well up in onr hearts
as we gaze upon their many nameless
graves which dot our land. Far from
kindred and home they lie but remew
bered by their grateful countrymen,
.and from the wreathes of roses and
cypress laid upon their worthy beds
by loving hands, arises a perfume
sweeter far than ever ascended from
the laurelled tombs of kings, or the
sarcophagi of earths conquerors. To
use the beautiful and appropriate sen
timnents of, another: "From that
mighty struggle States and friends
survived who may care for their sons
and loved ones, but for those poor fel
lows we only know that they were sol
diers of the dead Confederacy. Their
flag is furled forever ; their government
no longer exists, save in history, for,
like themselves, it fell on the field of
battle. But for these relics of a van
ouished country, these nameless graves
.of the soldiers of a conquered banner,
deprived of the visits and tears of
sorrowing dear ones, our people where
soever they lie, must care, never for
getting for one moment that they gave
their all for us." During the war,
that learned and pious divine, Bishop
Elliot, in an address of great power,
expressed the hope that the South
- mindful of the valor and self. sacrifice
of the soldiers of her armieE, would
erect a monument to the "unkcown
unrecorded dead." And the fair
daughters of the Valley of Virginia,
catching the inspiration of this noble
sentiment, have collected the remains
of hundreds of these unknown heroes,
and depositing them in a battle abbey
mound in their beautiful cemetery at
Winchester, propose erecting a monu
ment over it, which, visible for miles
around in that lovely land, will tell
the passer-by, in the ages to come, the
story of their valor and sacrifice.
Their sisters all over the South should
assist in this pious work, for beneath it
lie buried stories of the brave sons of
every Southern State. Other States
and'commcnities are commemorating
their dead, and on the 13th of May
a year ago, a lofty shaft of purest
marble (-to erect which the women of
Carolina worked and prayed for ten
long years) was unveiled at our capital,
and the eloquent and gifted Preston,
inheritor of the pathos of Henry and
patriotism of Campbell, told "in
thoughts that burn and words that
breathe" the depth of our gratitude
for their blessed work. Storms may
blow around it and sunshine and
clouds illuminate or obscurre it, while
chapters of glory or days of darkness
crown or bedim our future, but there
it will stand in mute but touching
grandeur, like the monument of Ther
wopyle, to tell the tale of the devo
tion and sacrifices of our martyred
dead ; and as our son's sons and theirs
in turn to the "last syllable of record
ed time," shall look upon it, may
the lesson of their lives inspire them
to emulate their herouism and cherish
for the old State a love so pure, a de
votion so unselfish, as to prefer death
to dishonor, and, growing richer and
better with advancing years, make her
all that is great and noble until time
fades into the dawn of eternity. In
our defeat we are the first people who
have erected monuments to perpetuate
4~ rn~rnnrv of th~ d~d of
enduring as possible." Monuments,
obelisks, pyramids and statutes have
in all time attested the grateful recol
lections of advancing ages and per
petuated in marble, brnnze or stone a
people's gratitude and veneration for
heroic deeds. Whether we stand be
side the blue ;egan or on the sands
of Egypt, beneath the far-famed Lin
dies of Berlin or in the Invalides of
Paris, on the Waterloo Square of Lon
don or the flowing Potomac of our
own land, we everywhere behold the
homage paid the mighty dead, and
feel our pulses quicken within us.
And all over this South of ours asso
ciations like yours are erecting monu
nients to perpetuate the memory of
the brave and fallen of our own Con
Beneath them lie the fathers, bro
thers, husbands and kindred of our
people. And as the Christians of the
middle ages venerated and fought for
the holy sepulchre, or the devout Mus
sulman bows himself morning and
eve to the shrine of the prophet. so
may. these mute but eloquent symbols
of self-sacrifice and devotion to prin
ciple inspire us to nobler deeds and
stimulate our youths to emulate their
worth and heroism. May the lessons
of patience, devotion to duty and un
flinching courage, exhibited so beauti
fully in the lives and deaths of our
martyred dead, sink deep down into
their hearts and help them onward
in their career of usefulness and hon

MENTOR, 0., July 12---General
Garfield has forwarded to Senator
Hoar, of Massachusetts, the following
letter of acceptance of the nomina
tion tendered him by the Republican
M ENTOR, 0., July 10th, 1880.
DExA SIa :-On the evening of the
8th of June last, I had the honor to
receive from you in the presence of
the committee, of which you are chair
man, the official announcement that
the Republican National Convention
at Chicago, had that day nominated
me for their candidate for President
of the United States. I accept the
nomination with gratitude for the con
fidence it implies, and with a deep
sense of the xesponsiblities it imposes.
I cordially endorse the principles set
forth- in the platform adopted by the
Convention on nearly all the subjects
1of which it treats. My opinions are
on record ame. g the published pro
ceedings of Congress. I venture,
however, to make special mention of
some of the principal topics which are
likely to becon- the subjects of dis
cussion withe reviewing the contro
versies which have been settled during
the past twenty years; and with no
purpose or wish to revive the passions
of war. It should be said that while
the Republicans fully recognize, and
will strenuously defend all righ ts re
tained by the people aud all the rights
reserved to the States, they reject the
,-~swnioirn,~ dnntrine of state snnr~!1rnr'v
pursuance thereof, are the supreme
law of the land ; that the right of the
atiotn to (letermine the method by
which its own Leg islature shall be
rreated, ca-tnnot. be surreudered with.
out abrogatinrg one of the fu;datne: t
al powers of the G=overnmteut ; that
the national laws relating to the elee
tion of Representatives in Congress,
sl;all neither be violated nor evaded ;
that every elector shall be pernitted
freely and witiut intimidation to
cast his lawful ballot at such election
and have it honestly counted, and that
the j,tcncy of his vote shall not be
destroyed by the fraudulent vote of any
other person. The best thoughts :md
energies of our people should be di
rected to those great questions of na
tional well being, in which all have
cumon interests. Such efforts will
soon restore perfect peace to those who
were lately in arws against each other,
for justice and good will will outlast
passiou,.but it is certain the wounds
of the war cannot be completely heal
ed, and the spirit of brotherhood can
not prevade the whole country until
every citizen, rich or poor, white or
black, is secure in the free and full
eujoyment of every civil and political
right guaranteed by the Constitution
and laws. Wherever enjoyment of
this is not secured, discontent will pre
vail, immigration will cease and the
social and industrial forces will con
tinue to be disturbed by the migration
of laborers and the consequent dimi
nution of prosperity. The National
(overnuient should exercise 'all its
coutsitutional authority to put an end
to these evils for all the people and all
the States are members of one body
and no member can suffer without in
jury to all. The most serious evils
which now afflict the South arisis
from the fact that there is not such
freedom and toleration of political
opinion ; that the minority party can
not exercise an affective and whole
some restraint upon the party in pow
er. Without such restraint party
rule becoues tyraunical and corrt;pt.
Prosperity which is made possible in
the South by its great advantages in
soil and eliu ates will never be realized
until every voter can freely and safe
ly support any party be pleases. Next
in importance to freedom and justice
is popular education, without which
neither can be permanently maintain
ed. Its interests are entrusted to the
States and the voluntary action of the
people. Whatever help the nation
can affvrd should be generously given
to aid the States in supporting comn
mon sc-hools ; but it would be unjust
to our people and dangerous to our in
stitutions to apply any portion of the
revet.ues of the nation or of the
States, in the support of sectarian
schools. The separation of church
and State in everything relatitg to
to:atiou should be adopted. On the
subject of natioual fiozinees my views
have been so frequently and so fully
expressed that little is needed in thre
way of additionial statement. The
public debt is now so welisecured and
the rate of annual interest has been so
reduced by refunding, that rigid eon
owy in the expenditures and the faith
ful application of our surplus revenues
to the payment of the principal of
the debt, will gradually, but certainly,
free the people from its burdens, and
close with~ honor the guaneilid chapter
of the wvar. At the same time the
Government can provide for all its
ordinary expenditures and discharge
its sacred obligations to the soldiers
of the Unoin and the widows and or
phans of those who fell in its defensc.
Resumption of specie payment, which
the Republican party so courageously
and successfully accomplished, has re
moved from the field of controrersy
many questions that long and serious
ly disturbed the credit of the Govern
ment and the business of the country.
Our paper currency is now as national
as the flag and resumption has not
only made it everywhere equal to coin
but has brought into use our store of
gold and silver. The circulating mae
dium is more abundant thau ever be
fore, psd we need only to maintain
equality of all our dollars to insui-e
to labor and capital a measure of value
fom the use of whic~h po one can sf
fer loss. The great prosperity which
the country is now enjoying should
not be eudangered by any violent
changes or doubtful financial expei
ments. In refereuce to our custoams
laws, a policy should be pursued which
will bring revenues to the Treasury.
and will enable labor and capital em
ployed in our great industries to com
pte fairly in our own markets with
the labor and capital of foreigQ pro
ducers. We legislate for the people
of thc United 8tates, not for the while
w,old. and it is our glory that the
Ameri-can laborer is ore inteiligent
and bet ter- paid than his foreign comn
petitor-. Our e.>untry cannot be inde
pendent unless its people, with their
abunrdan t iuntu ra resources, possess
the reqjuisite skill at. any timre to elohs
arm end (quip theminselves for war,
and in time of peace to produce all
the necessarj~ irpkemenrts of labor. It
was the msanifest intention of the
founders of the G~oveinmxent to pro.
vide for the comvon defensa, not by
standing armies alone, but by raising
among the people a greater army of
artisans whose lutCdligence and skill
should powerfully contr-ibute to the
safety and glor-y of the nation. For
tunately for the interests of commecrce,
there is no longer formid4able opposi
tion to appr-opiations for the impr-ove
ent of our harbors and great naivi
gable rivers, pro"ided the expenditures
for the purpose are strictly limited to
works of national importance. The
Mississippi iiver with its gr-eat tribu
taries, is of such vital importance to
so many millions of people, that the
safety of its navigation re.qdires e;

secure to the nation contr-ol of all its
waters, President Jefferso.n negotiated

and in which seven twelfths of oor

interests of mauufactures and com

The material interests of this coun
try, the traditions of its settlement
and the sentiments of our people
have led the Government to offer the
widest hospitality to emigrants who
seek our shores for new and happier
homes, willing to share the burdens
as well as the benefits of our society
and intending that their prosperity
shall become an undistiguishable part
of our population. The recent move
ment of Chinese to our Pacific coast
partakes but little of the qualities of
such an emigration, either in its pur
poses or its result. It is too much
like an importation to be welcomed

fail, it will be the duty of Congres.
to mitigate the evils already felt and
prevent their increase by such restric
tions as without violence or injustice,
will place upon a sure foundation the
peace of our community and the free
dow and dignity of labor.
The appointment of citizens to the
various executive and judicial office:
of the Government, is perhaps, th(
most difficult of all duties which the
constitution has imposed upon the
Executive. The Convention wisc)
demands that tongress shall co-ope

Experience has proved that with our
frequent changes of administration nc
system of reform can be made effec
tive and permanent without the aid
of legislation. Appointments to the
military for naval service are so regu
lated by law and custom as to leave
but little ground for complaint. It
may not be wise to make similar reg
ulations by law for the civil service
but without invading the authority
or the necessary discretion of the Ex.
ecutive, Congress should devise a
method that will determine the tenure
of offce and greatly reduce the un
certainty which makes that service sc
uncertain and unsatisfactory. With
out depriving any officer of his rights
as a citizen, the Government should
require him to discharge all his
ofcial duties with intelligence, efii
iency and faithfulness. To select
wisely from ou~r vast population those
who are best fitted, requires an ac.
quaintance far beyond the range ol

therefore, seek and receive the in

in my judgment, these principles
should control the legislation and the
administration of the Government.
In any event they will guide my con
duct until experience points out a
better way. If elected, it will be my

to the Constitutution and laws, and tc

covery that by combining some well
known valuable remedies, the most
wonderful medicine was produced,
which would cure such a wide range
of diseases that most all other remedies

sceptical ; but proof of its merits by
actual trial has dispelled all doubt,

The ('ode Duello. I
We do not propose to write an 9
essay on this subject. Whether it
is crer justifiable to send or accept (
a oba;lenge, is a question for each I
man to answer for himself. That
it is a violation of law no one can r
deny: the law is plain and explicit. 1
So is it a violation of law to resent 1
an insult, and to strike the man
who insults you, however grievous 1
the insult may be. So, to carry a
out the law argument, a man should
never fight-with fists, sticks, pis
tols, or in any other way-except t
in absolute self defense. This law
is very seldom observed. The man
who receives a gross insult will
strike, law or no law ; and if either
party is armed there is a strong
probability that one will be killed,
and the chances are that friends of
the parties will rush in, and more
than one life will be lost. Consid
ering the high temper and the im
pulsive character of the Southern
people, and looking at the large
number of deaths that have ensued
from private brawls, it is a question
whether the number of homicides
would be reduced by a more general
resort to the "Code". Take the
case of Cash and Shannon : Sup
pose Siannon, instead of calling
Cash out, had attacked Cash on the
streets or highway-one of them
would certainly have been killed ;
very likely others would have be
come involved, and there might
have been a general slaughter of
mutual friends. But, you say,
Shannon ought not to have noticed
the insult. Well, perhaps not ; but
that leads to the position that we
have already stated-that a man
must not resent any insult. Estab
lish this doctrine, and it places it
within the power of any mean,
cowardly bully to blast your repu- 1
tation, to villify and spit upon you,
and to render your life miserable
and a burden.
The argument of those who favor
the "Code" us, 1, that it settles d iffi
culties without endangering any
persons except those immediately
concerned ; 2, that it makes men
more circumspect in their deport
ment towards each other and thus
renders insults of rare occurrence.
In this way it prevents rows and
brawls ; 3, that it enables a man
wvho is small and physically weak
to protect himself against one who
might otherwise abuse and maltreat
him with impunity-any other mode
of resistance on his part would but
ensure additional abuse.
The duel is not a test of courage
among gentlemen. It does not
prove that a man is a coward be
cause ho declines a challenge, and
those who favor the "Code" do not
so regard it ; the cowardice consists
in offering an insult when you do
not intend to give satisfaction for
it. If a man declines to fight on
the ground that he is conscien tious
ly opposed to dueling his statement
will be taken as true, provided his
life is not of so desperate, reckless
and blood-thirsty a character as to
render such a view 'improbable.
Men do not fight to establish a
reputation for courage, but to pro
tect themselves from insult, abuse
We are not an advocate of duel
ing. On the contrary we hope .
there will never be another duel in
the State, or out of it. But whether
a man is ever, under any circum
stances, justified in fighting we do
not feel called upon to answer. Let
each man do so for himself as the
occasion arises. It is time enoughI
then to say wvhether you will fight
The proper plan is for every man
to so conduct himself towards every
other man that there will be no
difficulties to settle.
As to the Cash-Shannon duel,
the facts so far as stated in the
press, are these : W. L. DePass and
Win. Shannon, lawyers, brought
suit against R. G. Ellerbe for a man
named Wienges for damages forC
assault and battery, and recovered
a verdict for $2,000. In attempt
ing to make the money they foundr
that Eller-be had confessed judg
ment for $1L5,000 to Mrs. E. B. C.
Cash. The only way to make the
money was to get this judgment a
out of the way ; they therefore a
brought suit to set aside the con- t
fession of judgment on the ground p
of fraud- Judge Kershaw, who Ii
tried the case, decided that ther-e 11
was no fraud. Col. E. B. C. Cash t
challenged DePass, and Ellerbe a

Mr. Duncan is a native of Vir

[855, after graduating at. Randolph
Iacon College, and began the prac

uite successful at the bar, being
Lmbitious, a very hard worker, a
rood speaker, and a man of fine
Lbility. He served during the war

;erved in the State Senate from
[868 to 1876. When the Spartan.

ond to his untiring energy is due
n great part the success that has
ttended that enterprise under so
nany difficulties. Since the road

The Banik Bills Case.
Comnmissioner Coit publishes a
tatemnent saying that the amount
>f Bank Bills counted and certified
o by McLaughlin is $G56,547.75,
mnd that the deficiency is $18,529.
There is some talk of Mr. Coit's
leclining the nominatiou for Comp -
roller-General. We think this
vould be a wise and patriotic step.
Llthough no one suspects him, in
he slightest degree, with complici
yor wrong in the matter of the
ills, yet a man in whose office
~uch things are possible is not
~alculated to inspire confidence in
iis executive and administrative
bility. __ _ _ _ _

FOR THE HIERALD.
The Stbbath School Convention of this
Conference of the Lut.heran Church opened
its first meeting at St. P-'ul's the 15th inst.
There was a lar-te concourse of people pres
eut. At least one-third co-:ld not get seats
in the church. Permanent -:eflcers were
elected. Maj. Patrick Wise was chosen
President, and Mr. Bachnan Boinest, Secre
tarv. There were some interesting and ani
mated di<cussions by Dr. Smeltzer, Revs.
IlawknN, Sligh, Wiriard and Bowles, Mr.
1). B. Wheeler, and Rev. J. C. Boyd of the
A. R P. Church. The Convention will ac
compi,h good, for the subjects and discus

There was a sumptuous dinner served by
as hospitabie people as we have seen for the
lasc thirty-four years. But oh! the candi
dates. They were there, rank and tile. It is
to be wished we could have candidates all
the time. It makes men so kind and affable,
and adds so much to th+c kindly spirit of such
occasions. All thanks to Mrs Gus Kibler
and thea the candidates in succession for the
following. It was the most enjoyable part
of the occasion outside of the church. Mrs.
Kibler was getting contributions for repair
ing the church building. How Capt. Whites
got through we ha-. not found out, but we
know how he got the rest through. About
the time dinner was innounced he waited on
our affable and cterical-lookiag Clerk, telling
himn that r.n exceedingly nice lady wished to
see him especially. The clerk smiled, doffed
his har, smoothed his hair and the place
where hair used to be, and started to the
lady, thinking now for a special dinuer'from
headquarters. No doubt be then felt his
election as sure as we have believed it to be
all the time. But soon a change comes over
his countenance, for he finds it is not dinner
he is to dispatch, but a hundred cents he is
to give. He ha: to have revenge. He goes
for the other candidates, lets them know they
are especially wanted. Dr. B., Maj. N. and
Col. L. follow suit. Then Maj. N, gets Un
cle Bert. Get Maj. N. to tell the change of
countenance of each one in succession. We
cannot do it justice. OBSERVER.
