'A Brief Biographical Sketch of tills
*,AbIo and Willing Servant of God.
it William Gordon Novillo was born
oe Walhalla, S. C., about tho timo
j,. Mint Bcauroguard was calling upo?
Wy. Andorson to surrender Fort Samtor.
On his father's side he ?s o? English
descent and has inhoritod many of
tho sturdy qualities of John Bull.
On the mother's sido, ho is Irish, and
in some degree has fallon heir to tho
lamons Irish Bull flashes of wit aud
humor oropping out nt tho most un
expected times and places. With
the exception1 of ono yonr spont at
Princeton Seminary, his eft tir? edu
cation has boon obtained in his nativo
State. Hois thoroughly furnished
for tho work of the ministry, having
spent th roo yoars at Nowborry Col
! logo, ono at Adger Colloge, two at
tho Seminary at Columbia, and ono
at Princoton.
With tho exception of a yoar or
two nt Frankfort, Ky., his ministry
has been passed in his nativo State,
and tho greater portion of it in
Bethel Presbytery. His first ohnrgo
was composed of Ninety-Six and
Cokesbury Churches in South Caro
lina Prosbytery. From thence ho
AV .as called to Concord Church in
Bethel, from thence to Frankfort,
Ky., and ?B onco moro in Bethel
Presbytery1 as the pastor of York
ono of tho finest churches in the
AB a pastor Brother Novillo soon
Avina tho confidenco and love of all
his charge. Gifted iv remembering
names, affable and pleasant in man
ner, prudent and Aviso in conversa
tion, and Avithal deeply sympathetic,
tho passing years only strengthen
the chauis that bind pastor and peo
ple together.
AB a preaohor, Brothor Novillo is
always instructive, never entering
the pulpit, without beaten oil. Ho is
thoroughly Calvanistio, and no ono
can listen to him without discovering
thu impress of tho lamented Girar
deau. Ho is an intensely practical
preacher, but his exhortations, liko
thoBO in tho Paulino epistles, aro
founded upon doctrine. With a
clear voico und pleasant man nor,
;, thoroughly propared and deoply in
earnest, it is literally truo of Novillo
"While in the pulpit he fears not tho
fnpo of man."
Whilo Brother Neville is deeply
concerned in all that adds to thc
material and moral good of his State,
yet her spiritual interest is tho bur
den of his heart. For years he has
devoted his time, labor and money
to tho causo of domestic missions.
With a largo pastorate and a cul
tured audienco to greet him each
Sabbath, ho will yet ride miles in tho
afternoon to preach in destitute
piscos, and at any cost to himself he
is over ready to heed tho cry, "Come
over and help tis." For years his
"*guiding hand han been upon thc home
missionary Avork of Bethel Presby
tery, and very much of tho success
of that Avork is due to his wisdom,
Koal and onergy. At present ho is
chairman of tho evangelistic commit
tee, and hjs fine administrative abil
ity, courteous bearing, forco of will
and knowledge of tho field has
already placed the work upon a sore
basis. Ho is pre-eminently fitted
for home missionary Avork.
While liko tho apostlo Paul, his
heart's desire and prayer for Israol is
tiiat they might be saved, like thc
apostle, tho claims of tho heathen
world also presses heavy upon his
heart. Under his leadership tho
Yorkvillo Church is supporting two
foreign Missionaries.
Bethel Presbytery has honored
Brother Neville with every position
within her gift. At tho prcsont he
is a trustee of Davidson Collogo, a
Trustee of tho Theological Semi
nary, Chairman of tho Synodical
Evangelical Committee, member of
tho Executive Committee of Bethel
Presbytery and a member of thc
General Assembly recently held at
Now Orleans.-J. H. Thornwcll, in
Southern Presbyterian.

For much of my information I am

Col. J. N. Brown, who not only boro

The first gun fired in that immor

April 12th, 18G1, but threo months
earlier, from Morris Island, Januar}'
9lh, 18G1, by South. Caiolina cadots,
commondod by Major Stovons. It
was discharged at? tho "Star of tho
West," a steamer carrying supplios
to Fort Sumter.
Tho Fourth R?giment of South
Carolina Volunteers Bent out
April 14, 1801, was composed of ?ol
d ic rs from Andorson, Ouoncc, Piok
ons and Grconvillo. Its officers wore
Col. J. B. K. Sloan, Lieut. Col. C. S.
M?ttison, Major J. II. Whituer,
Adjt. S. M. Wilkes.
Thoro was littlo lighting on South
Carolina soil ; our soldiorB mot tho
foo on the battlefields of Virginia
and Tennessee and by the courage
and patriotism they displayed, proved
tho spirit of 1770 was still a vital
spark, and that tho chivalry of the
South could produco the finest sol
diers, as well as tho finest gentlemen,
the world bad ovor produced.
Tho firat important battle was Big
Bethel, Juno 10th, 1861. Tho South
Carolinians who participated in thu
battle were commanded by Gen. D
II. Hill. On July 21st, 1861, took
place tho battle of Bull Run, or th?

Tho next important battle in whicl
our soldiers engaged waa on Oetobe
2d, 1801, at Lceaburg, Gen. N. G

Carolina troops.
In 1802 dur men participated ii
tho following battles : Williamsburg

Sharpsburg, Frcdcricksburg, Shilol
and Murfrecaboro.
In 1808 occurred tho following
battlea, in which tho 10th, 10th, Ititi
and 24th regiments took part:
Chancellorsville, Reaaca, Ne\
Hope, Harrison's Mountain, Cottys

Richmond, Perrysvllle. In tho bal

Less Ltqor Drinking.
Tho bulletin for tho Federal De
partment of Labor for July gives
figures to Bbow that thoro has been
a largo deoreaso in the consumption
of intoxicating liquors by tho peoplo
of this country. In 1880 tho con
sumption of distilled spirits in tho
United States was 2? gallons for
ovory man, woman and child ; in 1890
it was loss than one gallon.
Such a decrcaso in tho uso of strong
drink probably novor occurred boforo
among any people.
There has also beon a decroaso in
tho usc of wino in this country. Tho
por capita of consumption of wino in
1880 was .'29 of a gallon, and in 1890
it was .20 of a gallon.
But while there has boon somo
decroaso in tho uso cf wino and a very
great decrease in tho uso of whiskey,
brandy, gin and other spirits, tho
consumption of boer has increased
In 1890 no less than 1,170,870,448
gallons of boer woro used in tins
country. Tho beer used for medi
cines, in cooking and for other pur
poses except drinking, is compara
tively very small. Tho great bulk
of thc beer consumed in 1890 was
drunk. Tho per capita consump
tion of beor in 1880 was only 1.86
gallons. By 1890 it had increased
to 16.1G gallons.
In spite of this fact there is good
reason to believe that thoro has boon
a great growth of temperance among
our peoplo during tho past eighteen
years. Their larger use of mild
drinks is moro than compensated for
by the great reduction of tho quan
strong and fiery liquors.-'Atlanta

WASHINGTON, D. C., July 20.-Tho Cabinot disoussod tho Presi
dent's answer to Spain's penco proposal to-day and roaohod tho follow
ing conclusion :
Tho absolute surrender of Porto Rico to tho United Statos and
tho cossion of several small islands adjacent to Cuba and Porto Rico
to the United Statos.
Recognition of tho independence of Cuba.
Cession of ono of tho Lndrono Islands to tho Unitod Statos as a
coaling station and thc cession to tho United States of at least a coal
ing stntion in tho Philippines.
Tho question undcoided ls, what disposition shall bo mado of tho
Philippine Islands an a whole. It onn bo stated that thoro is practically
no difforonco of opinion in the Cabinet on tho question of the roton
tion of tho Philippines Islands as a wholo, all tho members being op
posed to our acquisition of theso islands. Thoro lins boon no docision,
howovor, ns yet on the extent to which tho govornmont will go in its ,
decision respecting thc future of those islands, but it is probable that
tho answor to tho President will express tho willingness of thiB govorn
mont to loave tho mattor of tho future govornmont of tho Philippines
ontiroly in tho hands of a joint commission to bo appointed by this
govornmont and tho govornmont of Spain. Tho probability is that
tho United Statos will insist ?pon a guarantee of certain reforms in
govornmont in tho Philippino Islands.
Our answer ?viii mnko no mention of tho monoy indemnity.
Neither will thoro bo nny armistice at all. Tho answer will be in tho
nature of nn ultimatum, and if Spain does not aocept it she will faro
worso in tho futuro. The noto from Spain, it is said, was a vory
adroit and oquivoonl document, from reading which ouo would think
tho only question involved wns Spain.
Apparently Spain might not roally havo intondod getting a diroot
answor from us, but only to opon diplomat io correspondence This
govornmont will not havo any such corrcspondono, but will make a
8trnightforward statement of its present ponce terms for Spain's ac
ceptance or rejeotibn, naming conditions that under tho circumstances
aro reasonable and oven generous.

POUT OV PONCK, PORTO Rico, via tho Island of St. Thomas, D.
W. I., July 28.-Tho Port of Ponco surrendered to Commandor C. lt.
Davis, of tho auxiliary gunboat Dixio yesterday. There was no resist
ance, and tho Americans were wolcomed with onthusiasm.
Major Gen. Milos arrived hero this morning nt dnybreak with Con.
Ernst's brigade and immediately started for tho town of Ponco, throo
miles inland, which capitulated this afternoon.
Tho American troops aro pushing towards the mountains and will
join Gen. Henry with his brigndo at Gunmen, which has boon enptured
by our troops.
A fight beforo tho latter place on Tuosday Inst was won by tho
American volunteers. Tho Spaniards ambushed oight companies of
tho Sixth Massachusetts and Sixth Illinois regimonts, but tho onoiny
wns repusled and driven back a milo to a ridgo, whoro tho Spanish
cavalry charged and wore routed by our infantry.
Gen. Garretson lcd tho fight with tho mon from Illinois and Mas
sachusetts and tho enemy retreated to Yauco, leaving four dead on tho
field and several wounded. None cf our men woro killed and only
three were slightly wounded.
Tho Porto Ricans are glad the Amoriean troops havo landed and
say they aro all Americans and will join our army.
Tho roads arc t^ood for military purposes. Our troopS^aro healthy
and (ion. Miles says tho campaign will bo short and vigorous.
Gen. Miles has issued tho following proclamation :
"In tho prosecution of tho war against tho Kingdom of Spain by
thc pooplo of the United Statos, in tho causo of .liberty, justice and
humanity, its military forces havo como to occupy tho Island of Porto
Rico. They como bonring the bannors of freodom, inspired by a noblo
purposo to seek tho cnomies of our government, of yours, and to destroy

living within their fold. Ilonce thoy release you from your formor
political relations, and, it i? hoped, insure your ehoerful accoptanco of
tho government of tho Unitod States.
"Tho chiof objeot of tho American military forces will bo to over

"It is not their purposo to intorfcro with tho existing laws and

article was handed to tho corres
pondent of the Knoxville Journal
and Tribune by a loading attorney
of Gold?boro, N. G. All tho facts
aro thoroin historio and will bo road

everywhere :
Less than ono hundred milos west
of Ashoville, in the County of Chero
kee, tho extromo western county of
North Carolina, on tho broken brow
of a lowly hill, across which crcops
thc shadows of tho unnamed peaks
of the beautiful Nantab ala Moun
tains, thoro stands a modest farm
houso that novor know a luxury. In
this humble and scantily iurnishod
home, about ono milo from Androws,
a flag station of tho Murphy Brandi
of tho Wostorn North Carolina Rail
road, thoro livos an aged widow with
a record so remarkable as to deserve
a dioico placo in tho annals of her
country. Crowned with tho-snow
that novor molts and modestly olaim
ing tho memories which stretch
aorose ?,ighty-oight long yoars, sho is
tho saintly grandmother and tho
Godly mothor around whom throe
generations of horo.es aro wont to
gather and pay reverential homage
of affeotion.
Her name is Mary Phillips Tatham.
Sho was born Fobruary 2, 1810, and,
thorofore, is in hor oighty-oighth
yoar. Hor grandfather followed and
fought undor Gen. Washington. Her
father was in tho thiokestof thc fight
at Now Orleans undor Gon. Jackson
and through lifo boro tho living ovi
doncc of tho oarnngo shown in that
memorable struggle. Under Gon.
Taylor in Mexico her husband was
in tho foro-front and novor faltered
or wavorod in tho faco of death itsolf.
In tho lato war she had six sons
who fought through and to the end
under tho stars and bars-ono was
ono of tho body-guard of Jefferson
Davis whon finally oapturod, and in
tho presont war botwoon tho United
StatCB and Spain fourtcon of her
grandsons aro in tho regular service
and aro worthy sons of worthy sires
-ready to do and to dio.
Theso are faots without color,
which can bo vorifiod by him who
doubts. Mrs. Tatham is still sprightly
and seemingly unconscious of tho
burdon which eighty-eight summers
have slowly-and I have almost Bald
cruelly-imposed. This quoon of
Amcrionn womanhood, Amorican
mother of Amorican horoos, in a
modest American homo, in tho
longthoning twilight of a lifo so long,
so fruitful and usoful,* around which
tho shadows swiftly deepen with
Buoh a record, commanded my pro
foundest homago and intorcst ana
impelled this modost montion of hor
name. Tho roadors, I am sure, will
instinctively sharo tho unbidden wish
that a kind Proviclenco may hil hor

WINNSIIOKO, S. C., July 20.--"In
spiring Hold Barleycorn" roignod at
tho campaign mooting hore to-day,
and the candidates for Governor
woro targots for tho sharp-shooting
of loose-tongucd liquorites. Tho
mooting was hold in tho woods about
three-quarters of a mlle from town,
and was a mild repetition of tho one
held in tho samo placo in 1890. Thoro
woro some ladies present and for tho
most part the crowd was quiot and
respectful to Mio oandidatos. Fring
ing tho huma.? concave juBt in front
of tho stand sat tho jig water orowd.
Their liquor-loavenod sallies were
direoted at tho gubernatorial candi
dates, oxcopt Governor Ellorbo, who
in somo way was fortunato enough
to escape tho dose that was adimin
istorcd to his six competitors. Col
Tillman's tusslo with them brought
from him tho statement that they
wero mobilized in tho interest of oin
of tho oandidatos, whoso nani? h<
did nov call, and thaf this was UK
beginning of a campaign of free dis
ponsary liquor to accomplish some
body's oloction.
Ever sinco tho mooting at Man<
ning thoro havo boon hints and sus
pioioiiB of somo combination of cnn
didates with tho supposed backing ol
tho powers that bo. To-day Mr
Sligh made a slight roforonoo t<
this, assorting that ho was in no com
bination, and that if ho ran aoross i
deal or ?ombino ho would expose it
Mr. Evans likowiso disclaimed con
hootion with any combination. Edito
Koostor, of tho Columbia Record
Governor Ellorbo's roforonoo to whoo
was reported in to-day's correspond
euee, was on hand to-day "watoliing'
and taking notes. Ho doolaros tba
tho Govornor's remarks to-day wer
stripped of tho offensive porsonalit;
of tho day boforo.
Mr. Cooper declared Tompkin
was a momber of tho disponsar
board when tho dispensary was die
graced, and ono of his own famil
had run nronud tho Stato cryin
rebatos. As for Brabham's decline
t ion to hold au oilico that had an
connection with tho dispensary, h
??aid God deliver him from euc
goody good men. Gen. Watts di
olarcd that Col. Floyd's condnot i
Chcstor was unworthy of a Sout
Carolina Confederate soldier.
Col. Floyd declared ho was a Can
linian from proforenco, while Wat
was ono bocruise ho could not help i
Aftor tho war ho ohoso South Car<

altars would burn longest and brigit
est tho great principi? of State
Major Blythe was plain and pra
t.ioal in his argument. Ho had hi
moro military experience than ai
man in thc State oxcopt the Office
of tho rogular army.
Mr. MoMahan was among his n
tivo glens and hollows. Ho song
tho oilico of Superintendent of lid
cation because ho lind a deep convi
tion that ho could bo useful in pi
moting tho common sohools. I
though tho sohool systom could 1
improved by tho enthusiastic and i
telligont labor of tho Suporintondcn
by his going among tho peoplo whe
education was baokward.
Col. Rico said ho would stand
fall on the record he mado when ?
perintondont of Education. Ho t
olarod this ofllcor ought to ho call
superintendent of common Bohoc
Legislation had taken a great d<
from his strength. His work shot
not bo at tho Stato House, but c
among tho peoplo. Tho soho?
should bo carried almost to tho pc
man's door.
Mr. Brown said if elected it wot
bo his privilege to work on tho wo
places in tho country for tho edin
tion of tho boys and girls. T
majority could not go to college,
it was to tho intorost of tho pco]
to improvo tho common sohools ch
to thom. Ho deplored the conditi
that mado it nccossary for tho far
ors to desort their farms and go
tho oitics seeking education for th
child ron.
Mr. Fonthorstono had a tboi
road to travel. A doz un or
liquorites had squattod on thogrou
immediately in front of tho platfoi
and during his speech sovoralof th
paraded around living ?XOi.Tut?iu
and interrogations right and h
Tim prohibition candidato was
only ono sontenco on thorn, doolnr
that they needod prohibition m
than any crowd ho had spokon to.
Mr. A roh cr avoidod tho rooks i

porpotratod on tho taxpayers than
whoa tho collegos wore built as poor

educational circulars and thoy woro
snatohed up with avidity by tho
Mr. Whitman's appoaranco made
tho squatters riso and got glecfuU
Tho redoubtable G. Walt finally
squelched thom with tho remark :
Whiskey has ono virtue. It brings
out a man's character, an? if ho?s a
fool it will show it to a dead moral
Tho Hquorite8 and ox-squatters
gavo Govornor ICUcrbo tho gladhand
and were oagor to hear him on tho
dispensary question. Tho Governor
doclarcd he had hoon ono of tho first,
porsons.to join tho "liefprm" n.\qye..
mont, but that ho had boon elootcd
Govorncv as tho cxponont of peaoo
and unity. "There aro," said ho, "a
certain ?ot.of politicians and n littlo
sot of mercenary newspaper editors
who aro political prostitutes, who
have slandered and abused mo bo
cause thoy could not uso mo, I defy
thom to moot mo taco to faco boforo

"How far you think you'll got ?"
was tho salutation from a liquorito
as Col. Tillman came forward. Oth
ors chimed in with ejaculations of
moro or less rolovanoy, until Unolo
Gcorgo told them they had bettor go
back to Doko and sloop off their
drunk. Somo of tho crowd bogan to
howl and spit fire, and Unolo Goorgo
thundered at thom : "This is the first
timo dispensary whiskey has been
used at tho meetings in tho interest
of tho political machine that is back?
ing one of the candidates for Govor
nor. Ho ought to tench you bettor
manners or tako you around and ox
hibit you." Howling was redoubled,
and Unolo Goorgo doolarcd this was
an indication that from now on un'
tho 30th of August froo dispensary
liquor would fiow from thc moun
tains to tho soa to carry tho elcotion
for ono of tho candidatos.
In my report of tho Chester moot
ing yesterday in somo unaccountable
way ono word WOB changed in Col.
Tillman's speech, making him favor
"prohibitive" license, when ho said
"private" license. While this was a
manifest orror of tho types, tho tele
graph or tho fast gliding pencil, yot
Uncle George was omboldoncd to got
up a man of straw, and doolaro that
Tho Nows and Courier and tho Stato
"distortod" his remarks. Ho is horo
by assured that as a poaco offoring
thc "distorter" will bo oruoiliod if ho
s?'ow his head, hands, foot or faco
Col. Sob amport also faood tho
storm. Aftor buffeting it for ton
minutos ho said ho hoped tho docent
people there would eliminate tho
trash. Ho prognostioatod a littlo,
saying that ho was going to bo Gov
ornor, and that Kllerho would not ho.
At any rato ho could guarantee that
ho would suBtain whoovor was elected
hotter than tho drunken howlers
Col. Watson nipped tho first
howler in the bud by offoring him a
silver dollar to shut up. Ho was
vory emphatic in denying that ho
had abused Kllorbo. What ho said
was simplo fact and truth. Ho
thought it was peculiar that Ellorbo
did not go to Horry. If it had been
himself he would havo gono thoro to
assort his manhood if thoy had put
him in tho river. Boing interrupted
frequently, ho said ho did not want
tho votes of drunken howlors.
