Judge J. P. Reed.
News and Courier.
The Hon. J. P. Reed, who died at
his residence in Anderson on Thurs
day night last, was born in Anderson
County in 1814, and. was at the time
of his death in the sixty-sixth year of
his age. He was ele1 d T-inrmber of
the House of Representatives in 1848,
and served in that- body until 1850
when. he was elected Solicitor of the
District now comprising the Eighth
Judicial sCireui . -16 held the office
of Solicitor until the breaking out of
the war, and during his term of office
ably and successfully discharged it
Iu 1868judge Red was elected tc
Congrees as member from the Third
District his majority over S. L. loge
(Republican) being 3,008. Beiug
unable to take the iron clad oath
Judge Reed could not qualify, and
Hoge retained the seat to which be
was not elected.
At the State election in 1874 the
Democrats declined to nominate can
didates for State offices, and deter
mined to support Judge Green (Re
publican) who had been nominated by
the -Bolting Republicans against D. H.
Chamberlain. Judge Reed conceived
- that, as a Democrat, he was equally at
liberty to support Chamberlain. This
he did, and continued to act af
terwards with the Republican par
ty in this State, although denying,
we believe, that he was a mem
ber. of the party. However this
may be, he was elected Judge of the
First Circuit' on Deceniier 2, 1874, tt
fill the vacancy caused by the death of
Judge R. F. Graham. In December
the Legislature elected W. J. Whip
per, a notoriousy corruptl and incapable
negro, Judge of the First Circuit,
claiming that Judge Reed had beeu
elected for merely so much of the four
years for which Judge Graham was
elected as was unexpired at the time
of Judge Graham's death. Governor
Chamberlain refused to comnmission
Whipper. It was a time of great ex
citement in the State, and Judge
Reed took at once, in response to a
letter from the Bar of the Circuit, the
pronounced position that Whipper
was not entitled-to the office to which he
claimed to have been electcd, and that
he should not and would not be reeog
nized as Judge within the Circuit. In
the proceediugs subsequently had, the
Supreme Court decided that Judge
Reed was entitled to hold for foui
In 1878 vben the Supreme Court
decided that the election of the Cir
cuit Judges was invalid because not
held by ballot as required by the Con
stitution, Judge Reed resigned his
commission and was succeeded by
Judge B. C. Pressley, who was elected
on February 14, 1878.
During Judge Reed's term of ofiee
as Judge it fell to his lot to pass upor
many question of vital importance to
the financial interests of Charleston
County. A4 number of jud,.,.ents
had been obtained against the county
with the connivance of the offieers
representing the State. When the
matter was brought before him by the
citizens Judge Reed set aside the ver
diet that had been rendered against
the. conty,and referred the cases, up.
on .the petition of a number of tax
payers, to'Col. A. H. Brown, as refe.
ree for examination. The order was
set aside by the Supreme-C1ourt as far
as it related to those judgment credi
tors who .had appealed in consequence
of no notice having been given to the
parties,~ butt the result of his ruling
upon a large number of eases, mn
which their was noappeal, was to save
the. county a very large amount of
mronev. It was this action on the
-part of Judge Reed whbich led to the
final investigation and purging of the
debt of the dounty by a Commission
appointed by the Legislature. Judge
Reed also about this time, gave an op.
portunity to bring to light the frauds
of Sk.eriff C. C. Bkwen. By his order
Mr. 01. R. Miles was appointed adviser
of the Grand-Jury, and the result of
his investigation showed np in bold
relief the monumental rascality of the
An eloquent and attracgive orator
Judge Reed's greatest successes were
won at the bar. On the bench he
could not always sink the pleader in
the judge, and he was undoubtedly
wanting in the courage whieh crys
talizes impulse into settled and perti.
nacious action. But his intentions
were good, and he was a big-hearted,
generous, charitable man, loved and
appreciated best, perhaps, by those
who knew him in his personal-rela
-After his resignation from the bench
Judge Reed resumed the practice of
law, but became a great sufferer from
a complication of diseases which finally
undermined his vigorous constitution.
He passed away in sleep, without ap.
pearance of pain. The many warm
freinds he retained sympatize sincerely
with his family,, and will remember
only his many good qualities of heart

Il:i~ood to the Greenbackers.I
Under date of August 19th, Gen.
Ila:ood addressed the following letter
to J- W. Holloway, Esq., President
of Pine Grove Greenback Club, Cain
den S. C:
My Dear Sir: I am in receipt ofJ
yours of the 16th instant, in which
on behalf of your club, you inquire
my views :
First. Upon the fence question
and secondly, Whether I believe in
working men controlling the govern
ment as well as supporting it.
With regard to whether the crops
or the live stock of: the country shall
be fen'ted, it is- a question purely of
cost and couveoience to those interes
ed; and to be answered by each local
ity for itself according to the circum
stances that surround it. Certaia
counties of the State and certain town
ships in other counties have adopted
the plan of fencing the stock, and
would not willingly recur to the old
system. Other counties prefer the
fencing of crops as the most conven
ient and least burdensome plan to them.
This is done under the State law giv
ing the respective counties and town
ships option in-the matter.
It appears to me that this optional
feature of the law is eminently wise
and should not be changed. It is a
matter for the electors in each local
ity to decide for themselves, and the
wishes of the majority must govern
in this as in other matters under in
stitutions such as ours.
If it is the purpose of your question
to enquire my views upon the appli
cation of this law to your township
or county, I have to say that having
neither property nor residence there,
it is not.my business, and I have no
opinion on the subject.
To your second question, I reply
that nowhere in the laws and Consti
tution of this State are the people
classed as workingmen or idle men,
rich men or poor men, intelligent
or ignorant men, or in any other man
ner than as electors and non-electors.
The qualifications of electors are de
fined irrespective of class, and the
qualification to hold office is the same
as to vote. I do not believe in class
government, but in the government
of the people by the people and for
I have thus respectfully and fully
answered the questions you have ad
dressed me; but, with your permis
sion, I will venture to say a word
more to the gentlemen of your club,
which I trust will be received in the
spirit in which it is intended. The
title "Greenback Club" implies views
mpon the currency. Upon this sub
ject different opinions prevail in the
D)ewocratic party itself. These differ
ences the national party have subor
dirnated to the vital issues at stake in
this campaign, and it behooves us of
South Carolina still more to close cur
ranks. The Republican party will un
doubtedly make another struggle this
year, and its success means with us
this vbery class legislation and govern
ment. It means, as our experience
has taught us, the predominance of
vice and ignorance in the State gov
ernment, and the suppression of all
that makes South Carolina fit for free
men to live in. The struggle for the
life of the State will be a hard one.
Let me implore you to postpone until
the victory is iron all of those minor
questions upon which good citizens
may well differ
It will be a sad day for you and moe
when it can be said that through our
differences and bickerings we have re
manded ourselves -and perhaps our
cbildren's children to the filth of Rad-.
Very truly your obedient servant,.
TwELVE EARs WITHOUT FOOD.
-Miss Eliza Burnst, who lives in
the upper part of Edgefield county, in1
what is known as the Callison neigh
borhood, is a. sister of Mr. Hlezekiah
Burnett of this county. She is now1
about 40 or 45 years of age, and has
not eaten a pound of solid food in
twelve years. She can drink water,
but anything like nourishment is im
mediately ejected from the stomach.
Her bowels are moved only at inter
vals of years. We get this informa-1
tion from Dr. A. T. Wideman, than
whom no man stands higher in Abbe
ville County. He has -never been cal
led to see Miss Burnett professionally
but several years ago was the family
physician of her brother, from whom
he obtained the particulars in her case.
Miss Burnett is kept alive by enemas<
of gruel. She has been confined to
her bed for more than twelve years,
and is very much reduced in Aesh,
though her mind is unaffected. This
is certainly the most remarkable case
of which we have ever' heard, and it
is one which deserves the notice of<
the medical profession, the exact facts
of which should be carefully noted by
a physician, and given to the world.<

Two MONTHS WITHOUT WATER.
-Mr. A. M. Edwards is a good
farmer and makes the greatest quan-I
tities of fodder. A few years ago, he I
missed one of his cows during the 1
month of August, and all ho'pes of
finding her had been given up. In 1
October he had occasion to examinei
his fodder house, and very much to
his surprise he found his cow cover
ed with fodder. It seems that when
unloding the fodder from the wagons 1
this cow by some means got into 1
the house and was covered. When he I
found her she had eaten the fodder
from around her, and was in excellent
condition. Much fatter than when]

We are informed by the eable and

feld,a di,tinguishied German -plitician,
had effected a divorce from his Amer.

the only obstacle to his becoming For

Tlhe domuestic history of the couple is
t .us given: The Countess 11a!zi'i!
was a Miss Moulton. She was the
daughter of an Albany merchant and
an aetress, Uxsarine Metz. The Moul
tons lived in Paris after 1862, and

man Lindecronc, Danish Minister at
Washington. Miss ioultou was belle
of the French court, a protege of the
Empress Eugenie, and in 1869 married
(;ount you Halzfeld, who was then
German Ambassador at Paris. It ap
pears that when a German noble mar
ries any lady who has, by birth ~or
otherwise, a connection with the lyric
or dramatic stage, he not only is ex
pelled from Court cireles,but "cut" by
society generally. We are informed
that whenever it haopcns that an of
ficer in the German army marries an
actress he immediate!y resigns his
commission to escape being sent to
oventry by his fellow-officers. The
stage from a German standpoint must
be held in dreadful reproach for im
morality or lack of caste, and yet we
have never heard that the royal family
Df Prussia or the nobles of that realm,
in the mass, were ever celebrated for
purity of life. And what must be
thought of the inean.spirited fellow-to
call him a noble man is to shame the
languae-who divorces himself from
I blameless, cultivated wife, with whom
he has lived for imore than ten years,
just to creep back to Court favor and
accept office under Emperor William.
One of the mightiest of earth, Napo.
leon the Great, made that essay and
was bitterly punished for his crime.
Nothing that he expcctel to gain by
it was aceot.iplished, but all his plans
were bifed and heaven avenged the
wrongs of the injured wife in such a
way as to make lesser creatures tram
ble when they seek to circumvent Pro
vidence. It was not the line of Bona
parte but the line of Josephine that
prospered, and that-line is still linked
with the monarchs :of the world.
Flow can.a Halzfeld who puts his faith
ul wife away be faithful to any trust
under the German Emperor, anid how
:an such an insect hope to find in am
bition, at such a cost, compensation
or the evil he has done, noat wnly to
is forsaken Countess but to society
and God ?.
There have been sonme happy marri
iges of American women with foreign
oblemen, but many such alliances
hare proved disastrous. Ii' the pres.
ut case, the symmpathy of the good
averywhere will go forth to the woman

The Radical prees is exercised over
advicc alleged to have been given by
Senator Wade Hampton, to the peo
ple of Virginia, viz: that before vo
ting this Fall, they consider what Lee
ad Jackson would do if living. To
be sure Senator Hampton denies the
3se of any such.language, or any Ian

ng it to be a forgery, and doing its
holly for political gain, let theiu ad
ise their leaders to consider before
7oting this Fall what General Han
;ock would do if a board of officers
ihould be appointed to investigate his
,onduct and should declare him guil
