A Bellicose Negro Arrested.
A warrant was taken out before Jus
tice Carlisle a few days ago for the ar
rest of Pierce Harmon. alias Robertson,
and placed in the hands of Messrs. J.
C.Myers and W.C.Ilunter for execution.
It was known that Pierce always went
armed and had threatened to kill any
body who would attempt to arrest him.
He was found in a house seven or eight
miles from town. Mr. Myers went to
the front door and Mr. Hunter to the
rear window. As Mr. Myers started
in the door the negro pulled down on
him with a big navy revolver.. Mr.
Hunter shouted to him to put down that
pistol. He obeyed and was arrested.
There are several charges against Pierce
besides that under which he was arrest
ed; hog-stealing and breaking into and
stealing meat from a smoke house, in
this County, and for house-breaking

The Star Troupe
Had a bad night for their play, but
as they bad announced their~appearance
wihoutfail they went through the per
formance for the benefit of those pres
ent. It consisted of music, dancing
and farcical performances by burnt cork
minstrels. There was an incongruity
as to color, however: two of the per
formers did not have their faces blacked.
All the actors should be alike-either
white or black. The burlesque on
Legerdemain by Mr. Liley was very
well done and was quite laughable.
The song and dance did not come up
to practiced minstrels, but did first rate
for amateurs. The farce oLthe "Doc
tor Shop" and that of "Pinafore" were
good, and kept the audience in a roar
of laughter. Some of the troupe have
decided talent in the comedy line; this
is especially true as to Mr. Liley and
The Star Troupe will.give another
entertainment soon. We hope they
will have a fair night and a good au
dience. Their object is to raise money
to buy improved instruments for the
Orchestra, and they should be encour

Serenade to Senator Butler
HIS SPEECH IN RESPONSE!
Senator Butler came over to Newbei
ry Thursday to pay a visit to Col. C. 11
Suber. As soon as his presence in tow:
was known arrangements were mad
to give him a complimientary serenad
at night by the Silver Cornet Band
The Band played a few airs in front u
Messrs. Suber & Cald well's office wher
the Senator was, and he was then con
ducted to the Court House steps and in
troduced to quite a large audience b:
Col. Suber. Had it been generalli
known that Senator Butler was to speal
there would have been a very Iarg
turn out of people both from town ant
country. Although delivered on the
spur of the moment the speech was 4
capital one-sound, sensible and prac
tical. His utterances were straightfor
ward, frank and wise, pointing ou
plainly and without disguise the dan
gers ahead of us, and the necessity o
t.nity and harmony. We can only give
an imperfect sketch of the speech, with
out attempting to quote the exact Ian
guage: Senator Butler said-I wish tha
I could have.had notice of this serenade
that I might have prepared some re
marks on topics that I am anxious t<
talk about to the people of the wholE
State. I would have preferred to wai

delusion. That party will not permi
the canvass to pass without organiza
tion. We must not be lulled into r
false security. I have heard, only to
day, from a reliable source, that the3
are preparing to put a State ticket iir
the field. The Natiorral Republicao
party will flood this State with distin

prepared to meet them? I have beei
told that there is some dissatisfaction re

State ticket. I was opposed to earl
nominations; thought it unwise then
and think so still; but I shall work a;

A Tribute to Woman.
I)r. McIntosh, in his recent address
before the Abbeville County Medical
Society, paid the following handsome
f and just tribute to woman, for which
we are indebted to the Press and Ban
As a profession, we number the ladies as
our friends, and are proud to do so. And
truly should the Medical Profession look to
woman with an instinctive consciousness
that her sympathy and good-will is ever with
them in all that pertains to the advance
ment of medical science. For woman, with
her fine intuitive perceptions as to who
are her friends, with the feeling that as man
more thoroughly understands her nature,
the more will she be appreciated, has ever
turned to our profession, knowing that there
she has friends who as the years roll by will
more thoroughly understand her worth, her
purity, her yirtue, ar.d her love. Trace .he
varied status of woman from rude barbarism
up to where our present civilization places
her, and tell what other class has striven as
the Medical Profession has in its sympathy
and appreciation-daily and hourly, quietly,
but steadily-to raise her from barbaric ser
vitude up, up, higher, and higher, until she
has been placed on the pedestal of equality,
and now looks forward to the tinm e when man,
recognising in - her all that is purer, nobler,
sweeter, lovelier, shall accord to her a pre
eminence in all her claims upon him for
duty, affection, and love.
But though we have claimed that woman
owes much to our profession, most cheerfully
and willingly do we bear witness, that in
many, many ways we are her debtors. For
as the practice of medicine carries out the
theory of medicine, just so woman carries
out the practice of medicine. What would
the skill of the physician amount to, were it
not that fair woman's hand prepares the po
tion he prescribes-that with the soft touch
she cools the fevered brow-that her very
presence speaks peace and comfort, and
calms the restless tossings of the wearied
sufferer. Ah! what is the sick room without
woman's presence. There, by the couch of
suffering, where nursing is half the battle,
t and patient, weary hours of watching count
- eually with the physician's skill, there does
the Medical Profession owe much of its suc
cess to woman when the victory is won and
life is saved. IIer sympathy, her ni:l, is ever
at our service, and whether it be a public
cau*e or a private need, the fact is only to be
made known and woman is ever ready to do
her part. What a debt of gratitude has the
soldier meted out to the Florence Nighten
gales of this and other days. } as the Con
federate ever forgotten what he owes to the
Swomen of the South? How at her home she
Stoiled and saved ro send something from her
I scanty stores to her gallant defenders! With
,what unfiagging zeal she devoted herself to
'the sick! Wherever the Confederate soldier
- could be found, stretched upon the bed of
i pain and suffering, there was to be seen wo
t man as an angel of mercy, minis tering to his
t wants, encouraging him with a word of
cheer, or act otf kindness, or soothing over
the last rugged steps of life that led to the
-grim portals of death, by words of consola
i tion. And just here let me say, that while at
I our State Capital and other points through
p out our country, monuments for our Con
'federate Dead are being erected, I cannot
a but feel that while the women of our land
.are thus perpetuating the memory of the
- soldier dead, there are somze others who
a too deserve a remembrance at our hands,
-deserve all that a grateful country can do
for their memory. Thoiugh they perished
S not amid the whirr of bullets, the crash of
- shell and storm of battle, yet in woman's
.quiet, unselfish way laid down their lives up
-on their country's altar, and should gain from
that country's love, undying. fame. As the
tocsin of war called the men to arms and led
- them away to the distant tented fields, soon
- there came a cry for help for the sick and suf
f fering soldier. Nobly did Carolina's women
e respond to the call, and soon with utter forget
tfulness of self, they were to be seen all
tthrough Virginia's mountain slopes and fer
tile vales, amid the quiet tents, or crowded
e hospital wards, caring for the sick, the dead,
d and the dying. But all these volunteers have
not returned-some of them found a final
resting place far away from home and friends
e and when the summons came, they too prov
t ed how willingly our noble patriotic women
-could die for their country, and the green
.mound with its grassy turf soon marked the
gratve of the soldier, and the soldier's friend.
Well do I remember an aged rptrag of the
South Carolina Hospital at Charlottesville,
IVirginia, who was one of the first to re
.spond to this call, and for more than
Ltwelve months by day and by night, early
and late, with never a day's rest, and hardly
0 an hour's relaxation during this whole
El period, did she stand to her post, doing her
i- duty- -her whole duty-never for one mo
*a ment failing to respond to every call the sol
.dier could ma.ke upon her. So, with strepgth
overtaxed, and health undermnined, she fell
a at the first onset of disease, an offering upon
e her country's altar, as the sentry upon his
n post; and far away from home and kindred,
e )nust where she had.raised so many back te
life, she passed away upon her hiospital
coch suroned only by those she had
s loed t minsterto, and as the sorrowing
soldiers bore her to her last rpstigg plae,
e and laid her llpAy avay in the cold,
it silent grave, the tear-drop trickled and fell
nas they turned to leave, and methoughi
could her spirit have been hovering near,
this tear drop as it fell glittering upon the
~r cold, frozen ground was a monument more
-~ prized to her than any that ever marked a
h kingly grave.
Thus, as the years pass on, has the chain
Y of associations bound more closely togethei
st the interest of medical science and weman'a
f. life, so that now we look not upon it as a
~- rope of sand, but a chain, every link ot
Swhich is hallowed by memories which,
thought they may oft-times be of a sombre
Sshade, are ever tinged lay the rosy hues ol
bi love and reverence on our part, to the faires1
