Story of its Signing by Li
Bone as War M<
July St. h
"It had got to be mids?mmer, 1862,"
Mr. Lincoln. said,*, in telling an artist
friend the history*of his most famous
official act. "Things luid'gone on from
bad to worse, until I felt that we had
reached the end of our rope on the plan
of operations we had been pursuing^
that we had about played our last card,
and must change cur tactics or lose
the game, I now determined upon the
adoption of the emancipation policy,
and without, consultation with, or the
knowledge of the cabinet, I prepared
the original draft of tho proclamation,
.and after much.anxious thought called
a cabinet meeting upon the subject. I
said to the c?hmet that I had resolved
upon this step, and had not called them
+ together, to ask their advice, but to lay
the subject matter of a proclamation
before them, suggestions as to which
would be in order after they had heard
it read."'.?
"It was on July 22 that the president
read to his cabinet the draft of this
first emancipation proclamation, ..which
after announcing that at the next meet
ing<of congress he would again offer.
itt compensated emancipation to such
States as chose to accept it, went on to
order as commander-in-chief of the
army and navy of tlio ^United States
that the slaves in all States -.vhieh
should be in rebellion against the gov
ernment on January 1, "1863, should
"then, henceforward and forever be
free."
Mr. Lincoln had given a hint of this
-intended step to Mr. Seward and. Mr.
"Welles, but to all the other members of
. the cabinet it came an a complete sur
prise. One thought it would cost the
Republicans the fall elections. Anoth
er preferred that emancipation should
be proclaimed by military commanders
in their several military districts. . Sec
.. ' . rotary Seward, while approving the
measure, suggested that it would better
- .be postponed until it could be given to
the country after a victory, instead of
' issuing it, aa would bo the. case *hen,
upon the greatest disasters of the war.
"The wisdom' of the view of the Secre
tary of State struck rae with very great
force,"*Mri Lincoln's recital .continuea.
"It was an aspect of the cast, that in
all my thought upon the subject, I had
entirely overlooked. The result, was
. that I put the draft of the proclamation
aside, as you do your sketch for a pic
turo, waiting for a victory.M
? The secrets of the administration
'? -were well kept, and no hint came to
the public that thc president had pro
posed such a measure to his cabinet.
' > As there: was at th? moment little in
the way of news to attract attention,
newspapers and private individuals
turned a sharp fire bf crit??ism upon
..V^'Mr. Lincoln. For tbistheysejied Upon
th? ?ver-us?ful text of . tba slavery

. dlgnantly that the president was going
too fast; others clamor?elas loudly that

He was waiting for victory, but vic-1
tory was slow to come. Instead the]
union army Buffered def eat at the sec- j
ond battle of Bull. Run on August 30,.
18S2. After this the pressure upon him j
to take some action upon shivery be- j
came stronger than ever. On Septem- ]
ber 13 he WSB visited by a company ofjj
ministers from'the churches of Chicago,
who came expressly to urge him to free
the suives at once. In the actual con- j
dition of things he could, of course, \
neither safely satisfy them nor deny
them, and his reply, while; perfectly
courteous, had in it a tone of rebuke
that showed the state of irritation and
high censitiveness under which he was
living.
"lam approached with the most op
posite opinions and advice, and that by,
religious men, who are equally certain
that.they represent the Divine will I
{ hope it will not be irreverent for me to
, say thc-- if it is probable that God
would reveal His will to others on a
point so connected with my duty, it
might be supposed he would reveal it
directly so me. What good would a
proclamation of emancipation from me
do, especially as we are now situated?
I do no', want to issue a document that
the whole world will see must neces
sarily be inoperative, like the pope's
bull against the comet. Do not misun
derstand me. I have nob. decided
against a proclamation of liberty to the
slaves; but hold the matter under ad
visement. Andi cain assure you that
the subject i 3 on my mind by day and
night, more than any other. Whatever
shall appear to be God's will, I will
do."
Four days after thia interview the
battle of Antietam was fought, and
when, af ?er a few dayB of uncertainty
it was found that it could be reasonably
claimed as iv Union victory/ th? presi
dent resolved to carry out his long-ma
tured purpose. Secretary Chase, in his
diary r?c?v&'i? very fully what occurred
on that eve c-memorab 1 e September 22,
1862. After some playful talk upon
other ma tters, Mr. Lincoln, taking a
graver to) ie, said :
."Gentleman? I have, as you are

Hule is Highly Praised.
(New York Herald.)
Southern horsemen visiting New
York and other Northern cities fre
quently express surprise at seeing so
few mules on the streets and in the
market, compared with the great num
ber of horses. And to those who are
familiar with tho strong points and
good qualities of this much misunder
stood animal it seems strange that in
a city where nearly 100,000 horses are
sold every year there is not a single
i dealer, so far as known, who makes a
business of trading in mules. Jersey
City has one mule dealer, and in New
ark there is another who keeps a few
in addition to his big stock of horses,
but when a resident of New York
wants to buy a mule he must go out of
town or go without.
In the Southern States the mule
ranks with the horse as a beast of
burden, and in some sections of the
J cotton belt outnumbers thy horse as a
stands. *d work animal. Of the three
million mules in America more than
two i.-dilion are owned in eleven South
ern States. Texas tops the list with
391,000, but the proportion of mules is
! larger in South Carolina, Georgia and
I Alabama. In each of these States
there are many more mules than
?horses, South Carolina having 107,000
mules and 74,000 horses, Georgia 201,
000 mules and 128,000 horses and Ala
bama ^62,000 mules and Alabama 162,
000 mules and 147,000 horses.
In the New England States there are
so few mules that they are not enu
merated in the statistics compiled by
the department of agriculture, New
York State has only 3,800 'miles, OB
compared with 650,000 horses.
Mules have advantages over horses
which have come to be recognized by
men who work Xhem side by side. In
the first place the mule is healthier
than the horse. He is subject to com
paratively few of the horse diseases
and is nc likely to haye any of the
blemishc which destroy the marked
value of so many horses. Besides, a
blemish hardly ever affects the selling
price of a mule. If he goes sound no
questions are asked. In buying a muk
no one ever thinks of demanding s
veterinary examination.
In point of intelligence and also in
muscular strength and endurance thc
mule excells the horse. He is not sc
nervous or high strung He has a
saner instinct of se If-preservation.
His vitalito is greater. He can stand
more hardi,hips, is. surer footed, and
when properly trained is steadier and
more reliable in work harness.
To Charles Darwin the mule alway ?
appeared "a surprising cr?ature."
'.That a hybrid," he said, "should pos
sess more intelligence, memory, oh
stinacy, social affection and power ol
muscular endurance than either of itt
parents seems to indicate that art hat
outmastcred nature." It is well
known that the brain of the mule ?
heavier than that of the horse.
Breeders find the mule more rr.ofit
abie than the ordinary work horse, be
cause he can be put on the market c
year or so sooner. He *s nat ? ex
pensive to raise c* co keep and he is ir
condition for light work before thc
hor?e is old enough, to be broken tc
harness. Mules are often sent to thc
field when two years old and kept thew
until old age overtakes them,
v*; It is not generally known . thal
George Washington was the . first
breeder of high grade mules in Ameri
ca and that: he made the mule popular
mth? South. On Washington's first
retirement, ir? I783,;he devoted himself
to farming et Mount Vernon and soon
became dissatisfied with the work
horses at his command. Casting about
for something better adapted tb South
ern 'agriculture, . he decided to try
mules. . . , ~
/ .^ Boon ??'. bis_ , intention became
knoww the King of Spain sent him a
present of a fine jack and two jennies
selected from the royal stud at Madrid.
The jack was called "Royal Gift,"
and . was said - to -be '?lQ$h?n?&:;high,
which ts an extraordinary height even
at this day. Lafayette also presented
to Washington a jack and several jen
nies from the Island of Malta, which
had long been noted for tbs superiority
of the . breed;. This jac?, which Wash
ingtohcalled ''Thc Knight pf Malta?M
is said to have been a splendid animal,
V with the form Of a ' stag and; the fe
rosity of a tiger,'.' as a writer, of that
period put it. *

tive .aiise-.; and inferior : quality imported

When it comes to - marketing mules
:t^/;t^.;ye^^.';?^yed ;-.inr' feeding and

|;b?^ervV ^CJ?; too, mules are . atways

up with the demand. The av<?

worked daily. Take a mule out of a
pen and tie him up in a stall and he
will almost certainly grow thin and
pine away. On the other hand, take
a thin horse out of a stall and turn him
in among a pen full of mules and he
will take on flesh so fast that one can
fairly see him grow. Race horse men
often resort to this expedient with a
thoroughbred or trotter of nervous
temperament that refuses to eat ur
fret? - imself thin.
Ask a dealer in horses why he does
not sell mules, or inquire among truok
men, contractors and others why more
mules are not used in New York and in
all probability no satisfactory answer
will be forthcoming. Perhaps the
most plausable explanation is that
mules are slow and everybody in New
York is in a hurry. With all his good
points in the matter of health,
strength, endurance and ability to
stand hardships on light rations the
mule, like his sire, is undeniably a
sluggard. Mules are at a disadvan
tage, also, on the smooth asphalt
pavements of the city streets, their
small i* ? and comparatively light
weurVt ms lng it difficult for them to
get a hold ^en asked to move a heavy
load. ^
Training the Deaf and Dumb.
Prior to the establishment of the pri
vate school for the deaf by N. P. Walk
er, at Cedar Spring, it was a rare
thing for one to see a deaf person in
the tounty. There was only one, so far
as the WTiter knows, in the town. In
the eastern part of the county now a
part of Cherokee, there were no deaf
mutes.
In the forties there was a short,
stout, elderly man by the name of Tol
leson, who had been deaf from birth.
His brother, Alfred Tolleson, and other
members of the family cared for him.
He was known by the name of "Dum
mie." He had quite a contempt for
the work done by the elder Walker at
Cedar Spring, and indicated that it was
all foolishness. He used a few signs
by which he communicated his wants.
Some of them were very significant.
He was'a great fisherman and he
would frequently bring in a fine string.
That is about the only work he did so
far as we knew. The boys about town
would tease him now and then ?and he
would show a tfolent temper. He had
a.fair mind ana could have accomplish
ed much good if he had received such
mental training as may be received now
at Cedar Spring.
This incident is mentioned to show
by way of contrast the great benefits
of the school for the deaf and the blind.
The boys that finish their courses there
are now prepared to make their way in
the world. Some of them take take up
mechanical trades, such as the making
and repairing of furniture, broom mak
ing, working with leather and type set
ting. They generally get jobs as soon
as they leave school and some of them
work in vacation. The girls are- taught
needle work and they becorow helpful
members of the family on their return
home. Best of all, they are able to
communicate -^ith the world. They
use the pencil rapidly and can soon "rive
and receive needed information. T;.ey
"learn to use the eyes much better than
people who can talk. They may not
hear as much, but they see much more.
For sane people all. conditions have
some compensations. No one, unfa
miliar with conditions, *can imagine how
much foolish and platitudinous oratory
these "unfortunates," as they are er
* roneously called miss. They never
know whether a preacher is Hammering
away on the atonement or eternal, pun
ishment. They miss all the straddling
Speeches of candidates and the empty
promises of reformersf
The State generally does hot under
stand fully thi work done for the deaf
and the blind. It requires a visit to
the Institu?e in order that the difficul
ties besetting the teachers, the contin
ual patience requir?d, the awaking
minds and the ultimate results as
knowledge reaches them by slow de
grees, may be fully understood. 'lhere
is'rio cause in the State for which ap
propriations should b? more readily and
cheerfully made by the legislature.

Holle?! Tobacco In Hothead,
(From Carolina Sparten.)
Superintendent Frank Evans, of the
city schools is preparing a South Caro
lina appendix to a school geography.
He desired some information in regard
to marketing tobacco a hundred years
ago. The Spartan asked for facts and
traditions. Mrs. Albert Gilbert, of
Abbeville County, has sent us a very
interesting letter which is given below:
Mrs. Gilbert, who was Miss Helen
McMakin, says:
"I have heard my father tell how his
father rolled tobacco from McMakin's
Tavern" (also put down on Mill's Map,
which is in my possession.) to Charles
ton. The driver walked most of the
way, but rode the horse down the hills.
My grandfather also carried indigo to
Charleston, S. C., audit was as good
as gold in trading. He had his own in
digo vats." k
Willing ton, S. C., July 4, 190G.
Dear Mft. Gilbert: At your request
I will endeavor to furnish you with
some facts connected with the early
local history of this section of the
county of Abbeville, but more espec
ially as relates to ?ome of the ' Dead
Towns" of the same. About six miles
due west from here, on a high hill
commanding an extensive as well as
the course of the Savannah and Broad
rivers for several miles, was situated
the town of Vienna. Just across the
river in the fork was the tow? of
Petersburg, and just below the mouth
of the Broad was Lisbon. The first
named was in South Carolina and the
last two in Georgia.
These towns were the trade centres
of the counties of Wilkes, Elbert and
Lincoln in Georgia, as was Vienna the
trading point for the western part of
Abbeville, Anderson and Pickens
Counties in this State. These plpces
all contained a considerable number of
stores. Vienna had 13, Petersburg 25
and Lisbon several. The principal
commercial commodity of the country
at that time was tobacco. My father,
who was raised 13 or 15 miles above
here, told me that he had seen one ol
I his near neighbors, who raised a quan
tity every year, pack it up in hogs
heads and roll it down the road tc
Vienna. These hogsheads had felloes
pinned on the outsides at each end and
a tongue fastened to pivots attach?e
to end of same and drawn by horses ti.
market. The hogsheads contained
about 1,000 pounds of leaf tobacco ir
the hand. There was an inspector ai
Vienna whose" duty it was to confiscate
all false packed packages by burning
the ??me in the streets of the town,
All the .stores were constructed ir
those days with cellars and the excava
tion which marked the former sites oi
the stores can still be seen in places
This town had the unique distinction o:
being the largest and almost the onlj
town in the country marked on "Mill'i
Map" of the State which was author
ized by the Legislature in 1820. Thii
was before the days of any railroads
The river Avas the only means of cheai
transportation by. means of small boati
carrying but three hogsheads of to
bac co. The river was \ dangerous ant
the demand for larger craft was noi
sufficient to induce any one to put ii
larger boats until the introduction OJ
cotton culture and the invention of th<
cotton gin. These small boats provint;
insufficfentj Capt. Charles Goodman in
augurated the present style of boat!
now in use, known as Petersburg
boats. This proved a great blessing t<
the rich planters, along the river, ai
Hamburg was the principal town anc
market for cotton and tobacco, whicl
is another one of the "Dead Towns.'
Once a strong rival of Augusta, it ic
hardly known now as having a history,
yet some \ stirring scenes have beer
enacted in ita streets. Hamburg
owes its decadence to the constructor
of the Augusta Canal; the other'town:
to th*? construction of the Greenvilk
and Columbia and the Georgia Rail
road respectively.
Yours respectfully, .
