Gen- Sutler's Statement* <
Certain newspaper editors and reporters
liavo done mo so much injuss
tice by falso reports in reforenco to
the recont disturbance in Hamburg, i
that it is duo to myself to mako to
the public a statement of my connect
tion with it. I
On Friday fevoning, July 7, Col. ,
Thomas Shaw, with his brother, the ]
Rev. William Shaw, was at Edgefield (
Court House to sec Mr. II. W. Ad- j
diaon and Mr. A. J. Norris and mv- 1
self on business. After transacting J
it. Col. Shaw said to mo that Mr. t
Robert J. Butler, who lives neai |
Hamburg, in A ikon county, desired
mo to be at Hamburg on the follow- j
ing ovening, (Saturday,) at 4 o'clock, (
to represent professi- nally his son, (
Thomas Butler, and eon in law, |
Henry Getzeu, in a trial to bo had |
before Trial Justico Prince Rivers. 1
Mr. Butler has been a lucrative cli- (
eni or mmo ior ninny years. 1 in- ]
quired of Col. Sliaw if ho know tlie t
nature of the caso to be tried, and lie t
said ho knew nothing oxcept what he j
had heard?that theso two young <
men had had an altercation with a (
company of negro militia in tho t
streets of Hamburg, on tlio *lth ot J
July, and that Mr. Robert Butler \
had complainod to Rivers, the major (
general ot militia and trial justice,
and that he supposed the trial refer- t
red to that matter. j
I accordingly left Kdrmfu'ld .it n .

o'clock next morning in a buggy.? (
When 1 had gone about seven miles f
on the old stago road 1 mot Dr. Geo. {
W ise, \\ liu inquired it 1 had hoard the t
news from Hamburg. I replied that [
1 had hoard nothing special, but was |
on my way to Hamburg to attend a ]
trial before Rivera. lie said the in- \
formation had roachcd Ins neighbor- ?
hood that the negro militia had ]
threatened to lynch Thomas Butler t
and Henry Gotzon it ihov were not ,
convicted, anu that several young t
men hud gone in that direction.
When nearing tho town I pent
word to Mr. Robert Butler to meet v
me in Hamburg, and give me the j
fuets of the ease in which he w ished
me to appear. Mr. Butler did meet *
me in a abort time, and I there for
the first time ascertained the character
of fhe trouble.
I had nothing wha'ever to do with '
tho matte'" np lo that lime?know ]
uoimng u?l wuat i have stated. My
business there was simply profee- (
sional: had nothing nbout inobut one ,
law book, and had no more idea of
there being a collision than an niter j
stranger. * (
1 learned after reaching Hamburg ,
that Mr. Henry Spar nick, of Aik?>n, ,
was in town as the attorney of tho t
colored militia, and sent for him with
a view of arranging for tho trial, or (

and, I think, will do mo tho justice
to say that my eaanest efTbi t was tu
prcvout any further trouble, pos- L
sible, and ho appoared equally anx- 1
ioufl.
Mr. Robert Butler then interposed 1
and said to Mr. Sparnick that if these '
men would make acknowledgments '
for their abuse and maltreatment of j
his son and sou in law, he would bo
satisfied. I said nothing about any v
apology myself. ?
It was then proposed that wo hold y
a conference with tho oflicers of the N
I militia company and l'i ince Rivers. ?
and 8co if wo could not adjust mat- c
tors. 1 made t.iis proposition. Mr. *
Sparnick assented, saying lie had in- 1
lluenco with tho negroes, and ho N
thought we could arratigo it. lie :
went otT, as I supposed, to biing his 1
clients, but did not return.
Bam Sponcer, a negro man, came '
to Mr. Dam's store, whero I was with 1
Mr. llobort lintlor, his son and son '
in law,^nd said thai ho desired to 1
6eo mo privately. I at onoo went 8
into Mr. Dam's back room, llesaiil 1
ho was sorry to eeo so much excitement,
and I expressed regrets at it. 1
when ho said that ho thought, inns- j(
much as Trial Justico Hi vers was to j 1
hear thu case, ho would prefer not to 1
bo in tho conference. 1 agreed with |
tho propriety ol that position, and ho 1
then said that tho officers ol J>.jc. \
