SHALL ANDERSON HAVE A COL
LEHE FOU (URLS.
Attention i? directed specially to
an article on pago three cl' tins is9ue
under the caption. "Anderson urged
to establish a college for girls."
This article is written by a lady, an
alumna of the Johnson Female Cni
versity, which flourishci1 in Anderson
from 1848, when Mrs. Miry IO. Daniel,
her sister, Mrs. Charlotte Payne,
Judge J. S. Murray ana Ww. H. John
son were associated together as in
structors, to 1>ti:j, when thc devasta
tions of the civil war rendered it tl i Iii -
cult to sustain schools of higher edu
cation aud caused thc trustees to sus
pend this school and sell the property.
We fully indorse the objects sought
in this well written article. It should
bc read hy every one, but particularly
by those who ure now und will soon he
sending their daughters to college in
other cities. However much un insti
tute is made to resemble a model
Christian home, or thc influences in
the school made conducive to Chris
lion character, home influences are
far more valuable, knitting closer the
ties of parent and child and a Hording
opportunities to correct objcctiooablc
tendencies the knowledge aod correc
tion of which could not bc expected in
a college faculty.
There will, of course, beobatacles in
the way in establishing a college for
girls in Anderson, but it will be found
that they are more imaginary than
real, the greatest obstacle being to find
one willing to take the matter in hand
and push it with that energy which
knows not defeat. In this con neotion
the Intelligencer believes it can name
a young business man of this city
whose daughters are not yet old enough
tobe sent to college, who will bead
the list of contributions with $500, and
who, can he be prevailed upon io en
gage in thc undertaking, will shortly
make the establishment of the college
an assured fact, provided, of course,
he be given the indorsement and in
fluence of some of our more prominent
leaders in the commercial enterprises
of the city.
Anderson is easily leading the State
just now in the establishing of manu
facturing industries, and the tendency
is strongly to a commercialism, if it
be not already reaohed, where, in the
struggle for the accumulation of
wealth and getting of power, our peo
ple are inclined to neglect the culture
of their finer attributes of nature, neg
leot institutions and measures which
conduoe most to the well being of
their children and society, and lose
sight of the fact'that the building and
maintenance of colleges in other cities
is made possible by their contribu
tions. This should not be, and when
the true happiness and substantial
value flowing from a college foi wooien
at home is properly taken into ac
count, to say noshing of the benefits
which will flow from such a college
into commercial channels, it will not
long remain so.
t It is proposed by this estimable lady
in her artiole to purchase as the site
of thi3 college the Patrick property,
which was the site of the Johnson
Female University. This we heartily
indorse. This was thc place selected
after mature deliberation, be assured,
in 1856 by such minds as the following
who composed the board of trustees:
Elias Earle, J. P. Reed, Daniel
Brown, O. R. Broyles, P. S. Vandi
ver, Fleetwood Rice, J. C. Griffin,
Stephen McCully, V. D. Fant, Elias
John Earle, Amaziah Rice, John H.
Sloan, B. F. Mauldin, Wm. S. Gris
ham, Thomas P. Brockman, Oliver E.
Edwards, B. C. Pressley, Ivcrson L.
BrookB, J. R. Kendrick, J. P. Boyce,
Stanmore B.Brooks, John Brownlee,
David S. Taylor, Warren Drummond,
James Latimer, Toliver Robertson, L.
C. Hinton, A. Hardin, Thomas Hay,
John B. O'Neal and Wm. A. Ow
ens. The crest of a beautiful hill, in
the southern portion of the city, on
the west side of main street, surround
ed by massive oaks, it appears in con
trast with other points in the city,
specially designed by nature for a seat
of learning, l?ut we have other rea
sons for indorsing this place: The ne
gro educators in this city have for
some time nursed und fostered tho
hope that they would one day own
this property and erect upon it a col
lege for negroes. This has been gen
erally known for some time but treat
ed indifferently, the people believing,
(pardon us for saying it) principally
because of a want of correct informa
tion, thin there was not the remotest
possibility of such a hope materializ
ing. We would advise our readers
that the Presbyterian Church, North, j
has several millions of dollar? for dis- 1
tri but ion, through their Board of Mis- j
sion?, for the educational advancement .
of the negroes south and it is being !
freely distributed whore this Boara is j
satisfied as to conditions, houesty and ,
qualifications of instructors and cor- :
reot religious influences. Tho negro '
educators here know these fact-? and
have nut been idle. They have in
duced members of this Board of Mis
sions to visit Anderson, pressed their
claims to be recognized ?ind made 1
prominent the desire t'> purchase this 1
very sile. So near are tho negroes to
thc accomplishment of their desires ,
in this matter that could they secure
the indorsement of a few prominent <
business men of Anderson to their
plans of building a negro college in
this city, we verily believe the money ,
would bc fort! Coming at once. Mr.
S. P. Harbison, a member of this board, '.
was in the city last week in consulta- 1
tion with J. P. Foster, a prominent \
negro educator, who is in charge of j
the school in this city supported by ,
the Northern Presbyterians, and we
would emphasize the fact that thc in- ?
activity of thc white people may prob- ! ?
ably lead to theadvantageof the negroes j '
and put them in possession this, the ! j
most desirable locatiou for a college in I ,
The money raised for the founding ]
of the Johnson University was by 1
subscription prior to 1852and then by
sale of scholarships. A similar plan j
could be adopted this time.
The grand work accomplished by !
hr. Preston in tireen ville in cstab
lishing ChicoraCollege, should furnish j
an example to our people. Notwith- j
standing the fact that the Greenville j
Female College had been long ?stab- '
lished and was enjoying the greatest j
prosperity, Ch ?cora was built and it is ?
an honor to thc State and a magnili- ?
cent ornament to our sister city.
With a strong pull together and with J
denominational lines obliterated, our |
people will be surprised to find how j
easily "a college for girls" can bc :
