The Cowpens Centennial
The 11th was a grand day for
Spartanburg, the occasion being
the Centennial Celebration of the
Battle of Cowpens and the Unveil
ing of the Statue of Gen. Daniel
Morgan. The battle was fought
the 17th of January, 1781, at Cow
pens, Spartanburg County, four
teen miles above the city. Gen.
Daniel Morgan was the successful
commander of the American fcrces
at that battle. The battle ground
being in an out of-the-way place it
was determined to erect the Statue
in the Puteli Square of Spartan
burg City; and to have the Cele
bration in May instead of January.
The Monument was erected by the
original "Thirteen States"; the
Statue (bronze) was presented by
Congress, and is the work of the
distinguished sculptor J. Q. A.
It is thought that fully 20,000
people attended the Celebration.
Everything passed off pleasantly
and on a grand scale'; there was
not an accident nor a single disa
greeable occurrence to mar the
complete success of the day. The
cere nonies consisted in an oration
by'. Gov. Hampton, representing
the Southern States ; Hon. Thomas
Wentworth Higginson, of Boston,
r representing the New England
States, and Hon. W. H. Francis, of
N~ew Jersey, representing the Mid
die States; the reading of a Cen
tennial Ode; the Unveiling ; and a
grand review of the Military by
Gen. Hunt of the U. S. Army.
"Centennials" have been quite
frequent since 1876, and there is no
doubt that these occasions, where
North meets South to celebrate the
valor, the patriotism and the glo.
ries of a common country, have
done much toward re-establishing
a sentiment of unity and fraternity
among all sections of the country.
The next Centennial will be that
ofc Yorktown, Va., in October, which
will be a grand affair.

the other. He is a man in middle
life ; but the busy life he has led

Berryman W. Hicks, a white man
living near Cowpens, in Spartan
burg County, killed his wife the 9th
by : hooting her with a shot gun and
stabbing her with a knife. He
then cut his own throat three times,
but failed to kill himself. He is
now in jail, and the Sheriff will
probably finish the job with a rope.
Capt. W. L. DePass, a lawyer of
1Camden, died suddenly at the Col

His death was sudden, and was
caused by heart disease. Capt. De
Pass was the man first challenged
by Col. Cash last Summer. He ac
cepted, but the duel was prevented
by the arrest of Capt. DePass.

CorLu1A, May 10.-'Capt. W. L.
DePass, of Camden, arrived in the
city a day or two ago on some law
business before the Supreme Court.
Yesterday he conducted his labors as
usual. and looked as well as ever,
complaining however that he felt urn
well. He did not pass a restful night.
and his condition wae worse this
morning, although he wouldJ not allow
a physician to be summoned, depre
cating the idea of any dangei from his
attack. His illness rapidly inereased,
however, and a physician was called
for, but before the latter arrived he
rose, walkcd a few paces and fell,
dying in a few moments, at half-past
8 o'clock. He had only time to give
a word of message to his wife. He
died of heart disease. Gen. Kennedy
and Major Leitner, of Camden, were
with him, and his body was attended
to by them and escorted by the
Knights of Honor, to which he be
longed, to the South Carolina Rail
road this evening, taking the 6 P. M.
train for Camden.

ON TUE BAY.
At 10 o'clock Thursday, accomipa
nied by the Committee and several
citizens, the Association anid its wives,
embarked on the Pilot Boy for so
much of a "life on the ocean wave" as
could be crowded into a long sumn.er
day. The bay was serene, a delightfuil
breeze f':n;ned the brow and a happier
crowd could not be foundi. The lirst

to the wvater, and a shied room whose

may well claim to be the
KEY TO THE SOUTHERN COAST.
A few years ago there existed only
isolated houses here anid there, now
there is a population of seven hundred,
several of whom, more or less, are
"cullerd pusso-us". It was not on the
programze to linger long, and the Pi
lot Boy was again entered, when we
steamed down the harbor to Bay
Point, and saw the white capped
breakers, and the blue sea which
marked the linie of the bar. Speaking
of the bar reminds u;s that all alongI

were ushered, ladies first, through the
Captain's dining room, the table of

latter our young and lively friend

meeting was mutually pleasant and a
heap of home gossip rehearsed. Down

huge piles of Phosphate rocks, vessels

Pursuant to call a public meeting of ciii
:ns of Newterry and Helena wa5 held in
he Court House Saturday afternoon, 14th
istant. On motion of Mr. Geo. Johnstone
he meeting was organized by the election
'f the folloving oticers: President, M. A.
Iarlisle ; Vice-President, W. J. Parrish
ecrct"iry, A. W. Ilamiter, with R. H.
3reneker, Sr., and W. H. Wallace, Assist
nt Sccletaries. On motion of Mr. 0. L.
Bchunpert, Mr. Y. J. Pope was called on
:o explain the object of the meeting. Mr.
Pope stated the object to be to form a joint
tock company for the purchase of the
Eeilena Car Shops and of contin,uiag these
hlops for manufacturing cars and other ar
icies. Mr. Pope spoke in favor of the pto
eet. He said that the greatest o bjec?ion
isually to undertaking an enterprise of this
sind was the cost of necessary pr'epa rations;
he purchase of grounds, buildings, &c.
rhis objection does not prevail in this case;
he preparations have already been made ;
he shops are built and are in operation,
tud he had understood that the Golumbia
k Greenville Rail Road Company was wili
g to dispose of these Shops on very favor
ble terms for the purpose now in view.
On motion of Mr. Geo. Johnstone, the
ameeting called on Mr. R. L. McCaughrin
or his views. Mr. McGaughrin said he was
ad to see this enterprise assuming a tan
be shape. It had been a source of regret
LO the Columbia & Greenville Rail Road
Company to move their Shops from Helena;
ut their combiniations and business inter
ests required it. lHe was not authorized,
he said, by the Company to speak on the
subject, but he felt safe in saying that the
Compa.ny will give very liberal terms; that
if a capital of $5n,000i be raised the Com
pany will lease the Shops, with the eighteen
eres of land, for a nominil sum so long as
they are used for building ears ; it w ill also
give special rates of freight on iron, wood
nd other material that would he trans
ported to the Shops over its road, and
would otherwise do a great deal to encour
Ige the enter prise. He said there is a great
iemanid for ears now-there is great activ
ty in railroad matters-Northern capital is
ing invested in Southern railroads, and
~bis section of counotry will be built up in a
ew years beyond our most sanguine expec
~ations. He believed the enterprise, with
uficient capital and a competent man at
he head of' it., would succed.
On motion of Mr. T. S. Moorman, Mr. W.
T. Parrish was called on for his views. He
aid that withi sufficient capital there was
o reason why Car Shops at HIelena should
lot succeed and pay a handsome dividend.
We have the pine, oak and ash in abun
lance in our midst; we are as near the iron
mud coal regions as most of the Northern
>r Westeru Car Shops ; we have skilled
nehanics-and we only want the capital.
ir. Geo. Johnstone moved that a comn
ittee of eeven: be appointed, of which the
hairmnan of this meeting shlall be Chair
nan x officio and the Vice-Presidetnt a
nember, whose duty it shall be to take the
natter into consideration, devise plans,
