Id those days Oiangcburg. as woll as
now, hat! her merchants, solid, whole
souled, persevering, practical moii, n'oo,
by tho "sweat of thoir brow," labored
to build up tboir trade in the place.
The most prominent among these were
Sylvester Beaoh, Sanders Glover,
Willliam Tootser, John Tyler and "Billy
Murrovr.'' Their stores were mostly
after the order of little country stores
iu general, dry-goods, groceries, ^cld
implements, country produce, fruits of
tl?c town and nf the garden placed pro
misruously together with mi t regard
to their effect in attracting custom, than
to neatness and order. Then too there
in the doorway stood the proprietor him
himself, wiih coat off and shirt-sleeve t
rolled up, ready to bignal out hi* friends
coming in from the country around
and ever ou the alert to strike a goo 1
One oi the most thorough go ahead,
wide awake of. tlie.se bu.siues.s- men was
Sylvester Beach. A few years before he
had come from New Kuglatid, and halt
jug at last in tho littlo Village of
Orangcburg, thoro ',:arted out as a
peddler of ttiukcts, clocks and other
wares. He had n quc.-r, old fashioned
carryall, with an uncii nt, solemn-faced
horac attached, and with these, in all
kinds of weather) he might be seen
driving over the country round about,
bargaining for the sale of hin wares.'
lie was sharp',quick wilted, persevering,
ready to drive a trade, and ue may be
supposed, succeeded well. A few years
of hard Work, and industry, self-denial,
and Sylvester had saved euougli to start
out in the store-keeping business. J'ur
chasing a "good lejk-out" in one corner
of Oruugcburg, ha settled dowu as a
lesido.iit merchant. Here his inn irk t
blc busiuoss tact did not desert him, and
as the years rolled on ho soon camo to
be recognized as one nf the wealthiest
and most influential men in the pi ice
At all hours' of the day the gonllcm in
ly, and obliging proprietor mi;_,iit be
luuud at his store, ready to wait upon

jrcat favorite. jg~
Of Sanders Glover, the genial whole
suulcd, jovial gentleman, whcui evot^
body Ucw hut to like, any one living
in Orangcburg iu those days can tell.
Sunders was full of his jokes, and not
only ever ready to have lhc:u at other
lolktj' expense, but b >ro it qtrte u-niably
atid good humored ly when "the tables
ucrc turned" upo? Jiiu/aeff. One of
the most prominent traits ol .his rharac
tcr was Lis hi.bit' of ..snoring. ludcrd
conic hud gone no far rs t:> nutert tV tt
he was the greatest nn-rcr iu tho place,
und a wind mill was nothing to he com
pared with hiih. Numerous were tho
jokes nf 1 is expense that this gave rise
to. One of these we remember to have
heard. By sonic chance a number of
th.c glass iu the windows ?d' his sleeping
apartment became cracked, which some
waggish young fellows observing, went
and reported it ove? the Village tha: San
ders' suoring had developed itself to
sucfr an alarming extent as to shatter
the glass iu Ms windows. This, Sarr
dcrs hearing, he rcc ivrd it with the
utmost sung fcoid, declaring that if he
cracked the ^lass ho guessed he could buy
more, and wcut uu> r'&oring us hard ua?
-Juat- om ihe cornwr wTick Mr. ITar
P-yVstute is now, there stood one kept
by "Biljy Mnrrow." Like Samlets
ti love's, 4T5iily" ton, was a whole Buulod,
genial lUOn, brave, ipapttlwive and gcWor
otis to a fault. "Nr>twi krew bias Vu4
to love him, none 'named him but to
ptaitc." No ''false bahiuco" was ever
v.< a!t ou* by his hand \ indeed he would
sooner have robbed himself before
dealing unjustly with another. He wns
"Billy Murrow" to everybody. Kvoo
the little children, from hearing their
fathers repeat the name so often, had
grown familiar with it. No one scarce
ly ever thought of mistering him ".Mr
. Musrow"' was? sound bio ear had not
grown accustodmd tto-.
The prinew)?!' products of OVange.burg
in otiose miy was butter, chickens nmf
eggs. These would be brought into
market ih' queer-looking, little' vehicles?
oullcd earts quite in vogue at thut time,
us tiuggies and-tho latter style of Wag
ons were ?hen- totally unknown'. Thoio
carts consisted of an ill shnped plunk
body upon two shafts, the labter being
held up by a strip, of leather, or "buck
band" as it was called) sewed in a loop
ut euch end and which worked up iuto
an uncouth little saddle placed in tho
center of the horse's back. Upon this
the "old man" rode and guided "the
critter," wbiJe tho "old omun," ia white
I fly-bonnot and hugo cheek apron, sat
I within the curt to look after the things,
and "soo as none got busted." lav some
eases a littlo black jug would find it's
.way betwecu'tho coop of chickens and
.basket ef <3gga> which eludhg the
vigilant eyo of tho "old owmon," would
be taketi iuto one of the little doggeries/
which stood in the village, there to be
filled, and returned u gain when 'tlie
old 'uinan uun't a ha/cin." Reaching
the village their butter, eggs, etos would
bo takeiifflto tho stores and ther? trad
ed tl? for "irjtfou stuff'' spun j<\tq "ter
backer," a "frock for the gala," oto.
.Sometimes great, strapping, bare footed
youths would tvu?gc along by the side
of the cart with a guo on their ahouldor
going in to the place there t? purchase
powder and shot for the purpose of wa
ging war against the feathered tribe.
The public buildings iu Oraogeburg
in tho dnya of which wo are writing were,
very few indeed. Such u thing as a
towu hall, or a hall of uny other kind, was
altogether unknown. Tho old court
house of that time was a plain, modest,
unassuming, wooden building, two stories
in hcighth, tho first flour being devoted
to the sheriff's office, that of tho clerk of
court aud Ordinary and tax-collector.
One or two lawyers also had their
offices here. The court room and jury
room occupied th? second floor. The
room for holding court at that time was
about forty feet square, with bare floor,
unpaiuted walls, wooden beucRos for the
judgCB, etc. This building in after
years was altered and repaired, changed
to a private residence, and still stands
on tho same ?pot il formerly occupied.
Not very far from thi> was the jail, a
small, stroug building of hewn logs,
rough and uuprepoacssing iu Bfpearanoe,
but serving well the purpose for which
it was designed. About this time the
new court house, siucc destroyed, was
iu the course of erection and was soon
after finished, also the present jail. Tli s
last will si and for years to come
yet a living monument to the industry
mid perseverance of those who planned
it. Tho days 'ar holding court iu
yrangeburg thou was regarded as quite
a lively time, great crowds flocking
hither to atteud the sessions. But des
pite the influx of visitor?, and the
whiskey, which was pretty freely cir
culated, very few disturbances of any
kind occurred, which spoke well for the
pcuccublcucss of the inhabitants. ? ^?
Foremost among tho lawyers stool
Joo>. M. Felder, Thomas \Y. Qlover and
a Mr. Whitnioro. Of the. talents and
popularity of" John M. Felder bis elec
tion 8)ou after by tho people of his
native State to fill the position of Sena
tor from that District was sufficient
proof. In the Senate Chamber 08 well
a* iu the little court house at home his
voico rang out fe.irl.ssly id defence of
the causa of truth and ri0ht, and never
by word or deed did lio ever betray t!ic
confidence' of the people, who bad made
him their choice, but stood up boldly for
then), a representative of ffhom Orange
burg [miglil well be proud. Mr. Folder
was a lithe dark complexioue 1 mm,
with b'ack hair and whiskers, rather
below the medium height, somewhat
ne/vons and abstracted in manner, aud
inclined to be brusque in speech. In
the time' of which wo are writing he
might often1 be seen walking up and
down the principal Streets of tire village,
his hat pulled down over hw eyes,
deeply engaged in reflect mo1. Some
times he has been knoWn Iu pass by his
most intimate friends without recogni
tion, so dcooly would he be buried in
revrie. Then again throwing off this
preocupicd air, bo could bo as merry
and jovial us any, and bis doors wore
always hospitably thrown upon to guests
and numerous were the huppy hours
some of them spent at "Cob-Web Hall,"
as his resideneo was more familiarity
called. This appellation grew out of
bhe fact of its master's being a bachelor
for which Ivewaw taunted unmercifully by
u number of waggish fellows around tho
village, who declared his hou-e was
V ... I
literally covered inside with cobwebs for
the want of a "fair hand" to keep them
brushed away. 1'ut their jokes never)
had the desired effect "Cob Wob Hall"
renianucd without a mistress, its master
spending all his days iu ''singlo blessed
Th mas W. (Hover, though1 very 1
young at that time, was one of the most
I talented and rising young members of
j the bar. Indeed his eloquenoe was
tho thouio of every tongue. Sometimes
ho seemed inspired) and then judge, ju
ry, audience, forgot all else as they lis
tened chained, enraptured, to the
words of thunder which rolled from tho
lips of the youthful Demosthenes. Nor
did-bis after career, which gr?*w more
brilliant with titne, disappoint the hopos
and9 expectations of his young iiiunhood .
