J IX ES W. GRAY.
Meeting of the Bar.
A meeting of the members of the Charleston
Bar was held yesterday at 12 o'clock at the Equity
coart-room, for the purpose or paying a tribute of
respect to the late Master In Equity, James w.
Gray, Esq. On motion of Colonel Phillips, the
meeting was organized by ex-Chief Justice Benja?
min F. Duncan-belng called to the chair and Mar'
tin L. Wilkins, Esq , appointed secretary.
On taking the chair. Justice Dunkin remarked
that they were assembled to render a tribute of
respect to one whose life and charhcter made
him an honor to the brothe'^ood au l to the com?
munity at large. For more than torty years
he bad occupied the responsible position of Master
in Chancery for this district, and throughout that
period his course had been repeatedly tested and
approved by a discriminating Legislature. DJ per?
forming the functions of that office, Mr. Gray had
exhibited rare ability, while bis fidelity to public
duty condnced to the public welfare. Prompt,
courteous and just, he embodied in his person
those virtues which secured Universal esteem, and
made him an example among men.
REMARKS OP HON. J. B. CAMPBELL.
Hon. J. B. Campbell then addressed the meet?
ing. He said :
Mr. Chairman-ll was a rew days since sug?
gested to me, by several or my brethren or the
Bar, that lt would be agreeable to them ir I would
open these proceedings In their behalf, by offer?
ing to their consideration the testimony I might
thlak lt flt and becoming ror them to give, upon
the life and character of their mend, the late
Master In Equity. I undertook tedo this-, forget?
ful at the moment how likely int that my taste
and habit of expression on such occasions will
fall short of the usual expectation. There can be
no difference of opinion upon the character of Mr.
Gray, or as to how he discharged to their fulfil?
ment the highest duties, public and private, of
life-and I have thought this opinion best, and
strongest expressed with the utmost simplicity.
There seems to be something espet lally suitable
In the use of the simplest language tu speak or
a character so simply pure as I think Mr.
Gray's character. When 1 came to the Bar, I
found him in office, where he had been, I think,
two or more years. I have known him ever since
In most of his relations of lire. For more than
twenty years he has been my near neighbor and
friend, and with thc experience of such an oppor?
tunity, enjoying the charms of almost dally Inter?
course, and for a long time my Judgment has been
long fixed thar his character was one or rare fideli?
ty, pnrlty and tj-uth, the practice of which virtues
he carried with admirable but unostentatious
firmness Into his every day life. He never im?
agined he could do something better than Justice
according io law. He never thought there was
arfcetter way to serve the law than by its upright
administration. I do not know that I could
speak higher praise. I esteem lt my good fortune
that I may speak lt truthfully. I have not, in the
simple tribute I shall offer, attempted, and I shall
not now attempt, any analysis of Mr. Gray's
mind and temperament, or of his Intellectual
powers. That will, I am sore, be bettet done than
I could do lt by those who will follow me. They
were cultivated and attractive to a very large
It ls as a magistrate-as a part and a very Im?
portant part of a Court of Equity, ttiat I have most
delight in contemplating him. Agreeable and re?
fined persons may be found everywhere. It ls
the greatest belssing of any country to sit down
secure of a pure and upright magistracy.
Mr. Chairman; more than thirty years ago, one
of the great masters or the law and of forensic
eloquence addressed this our Bar of Charleston.
You and I, and many or those now present, and
our deceased friend, also, listened to him. He
said then, better than I can now say lt, what I
now reel In the contemplation or Mr. Gray's char?
acter. "In my opinion," said he, "there ls no
character on earth more elevated andmore pure
than that ol a learned and upright Judge, ^nere
is no cause to which I wonld more cneerfallr and
more largely, con tribute tao earnings ot my life
than to the adequate support of the learned and
uptight Judge. Such a character ls an Important
Influence for the public good-like the dews or j
heaven,'ailing without obsei vance. No morali?
ty, save that or the lesson ol mankind, ls more en?
nobling than that ot a Court of Equity. No moral
lesson, except those of Holy Writ, surpasse? the
teachings of the great lights of that court on
the subject or fiduciary relations, and, In matters
of trusu and confidence, I pray Htaven we
may never relinquish the Independence of the Ju?
diciary. A time-serving ludge is a spectacle to
Inspire abhorrence." This language and train or
thought comes back to me now after the laps? of
near a quarter century, while I think and attempt
to speak of Mr. Gray. No man ever taught by
example and practice the gulf-wide difference
which separates the upright from the time-serving
ludge more distinctly than James W. Gray.
lr there ls any higher praise than that to be
spuken or anv man, 1 don't know lt-I cannot
speak lt. I subscribe fully to what I have repeat?
ed In the langnage of another, and again repeat,
there ls no character on earth more elevated and
pure than that of an upright Judge. Such I be
IcveMr. Cray to have been.
After these remarks Mr. Campbell moved the
chowing memorial and resolutions:
The late James W. Gray was born at Charles
ion on the 2d day of July, 1795, and here received
ils primary education and preparation for the
South Carolina College, where he received his tir-t
legree with his class or 1813. and the same year
commence.l the study of the law In the ornee or
tfr. Yancey A Kinsman, at Abbeville, and after?
wards pm sued it lu the office or the late Judge
Hnger, at Charleston.
He was called to the bar In 1827, and began
and followed the practice or his profession as the
lunlor partner of the late George Warren Cross
until 1829, when he was elected by the General
Assembly one of thc Masters of the Court of
Equity, the duties of which responsible olflce he
cou tin ned to discharge under repeated continu?
ous elections until the 3tst day of December,
186S, when me court Itself was overthrown, and
?uve-place to an untried system for the adminis?
tration of equitable jurisprudence.
He survived tho court, of which he had been so
long a most Important part, nearlv two years,
ind then, on the morning of the 27th day of De
centner. 1S70, went peacefully to his final rest, in
Che 76th y^ar of his age. For neir forty years
lie discharged the mingled administrative and
ludiclal functions of a Master in the Court nf
Equity. It was there, aud la that responsible
trust, that the whole Bar knew him especially.
The administration <>r his office ror that long
period of years was the work of his ?(/J?; by lt, he
will be most known and have the lougest pnbllc
rememberance. He was not long enough at the
Bar to have lett any very distinct traditional re?
collection.of hlseareer there. Perhaps the,gentle?
ness, firmness aud purity of his nature were bet
ter developed in the exercise of administrative
and judicial dudes than could have been by
thc jostling conflicts of active professional life.
His jonrney or ure ?3 ended In the fullness of years,
and now, the Bar of Charleston-h's brethren ul
the profession-as well those who s rvlve to re?
member him before and when he came Into office,
and all the vay down through so many years, as
toose who have grown up remembering him onlv
where they ronna him discharging the duties or
his office until its end, have come together to bear
their testimony and pass tbelr Judgment how he
bore himself In Hie, and In death what memory he
bas l?ft i>e h ind; and thereupon they do hereby re?
1. That, In their Judgment, the late James W.
Gray ror nearly lorty years administered the
great trusts of his office with tir ru new, fidelity,
truth and purity. That Justice, according to law,
was in his Heart, and was the standard and rule
or his conduct. That bis firmness and fidelity
was so swee*ened by gentleness of manner and
assistance that his death ls accepted by them
with grief, softened by the contemplation of bis
well-acted public and private life-as magistrate:
as the head of a family; as a citizen-the memory
of which will be preserved by them with faithful
2. That the assembled Bar hereby tender to his
widow and children their sympathy and condo?
lence, and therewith offer this expression of their
judgment, of their grier, and or their affection for
their deceased friend and brother.
The resolutions were seconded .by General Jas.
Simons in an eloquent and affecting address.
Ile was followed by Alexander H. Brown, Esq.,
who spoke as fo'lows:
RRMARKS OF A. H. BROWS', ESQ.
Mr. Chairman-It ls my habit to attend such
calls as these, and, save In a single tnstauee, l
have been content to remain a silent listener to
the views of mental eulogy which these occasions
elicit. Both duty and Inclination, at this time,
prompt me to say a few words as the willing tes?
timonial t offer to tne memory or my friend. My
Knowledge of Mr. Gray ls or over forty years' con?
sonance. I have knowu him as a gentle, skilled
and upright practitioner at our Bar; I have known
him as the just and efficient omcer of the highest
Judicial tribunal of tne State; I have known him
for this period wit h?ht a single inturruptlon In
our soda: Intercourse, and I have dwelt nigh him
most agreeably as a neighbor.
That he was estimated gentle, skilled and up?
right as a lawyer u well attested by the fact that
a discriminating Legislature conferred on him
the distinguished offlolal position of Master in
Chancery. That his professional skill and un?
shaken Integrity kept him In this high preferment
for thirty-nine years, and even until Innovation
destroyed the venerable and time honored judi?
cial system ortho State. That during this time,
aa the tenure or his ornoo periodically expired, he
was again and again chosen. The capable ad?
ministration, or his Ul? h calling eu trenched him
so strongly that, although he passed through
times of great political struggle and excitement,
and then avowedly In tho minority, the ander
hand of proscription never dislodged bim.
Io all his relations o' life, as a husband, father,
brother and friend, he stood a bright example and
ulled the measure of his duty. With the self?
same gentleness that marked his entire life, he
met thc approach of death. This messenger the
purity of his lite disarmed of his terrors* and
with calm resignation ho went to hts account. He
made no marked demonstration of the hope of
immortality that dwelt within him. But to those
>who anxiously watched his dying moments he
seemingly said, "Weep not, mourn not, for lt
Btaudeth weil with me."
Colonel B. H. Rutledge, A. H. Donkin, Esq, and
Genera? Wilmot G. DeSaussnre then addressed the
Ur. James G. Holmes referred to tue school-days
, of the deceased, when they were companlons at
the grammar school of Dr. Buist. There was but
one other or their class mates alive. From child?
hood to the day of his death he had been a friend
or Ur. Gray. In the trials and difficulties or this
lire, no one conducted himself with more Integri?
ty and piety. For years they had been separated
while at co'lege, but they resumed their friendly
Intercourse when they both commenced the study
or the law. In the midst ol a great political ex?
citement, his (Mr. Holmes's) brother had sacrificed
an office to.securc for Mr. Gray the one which the
latter had filled with so much honor. He found
Mr. Gray through life the kind, good and gent?o
person described by his friends present, and lt
W03 sad Indeed to be called upon to mourn the
loss of one who had been a companion from youth
to old age.
Mr. Nathans and Mr. Ficken presented the testi?
monial of the Junior portion of the Bar m brief
and appropriate addresses.
The preamble and resolutions were then unani?
mously adopted, and, on motion, they were order?
ed to be published.
The meeting then adjourned.
STEWARD OF THE FREUNDSCHAFTSB'?ND. -
Mr. W. Nolte was re-elected on Tuesday evening
steward or the FreundBChaftsbund, a position
which he has filled for a number or years.
REAL ESTATE.-There were several sales of ]
real estate advertised for yesterday morning, but
at the appointed time so few buyers were present
that they were all postponed. One sheriff's sale
of mortgaged property was effected, but as lt
was bought In by the mortgagee, to save himself,
it 'ls no criterion of the market, and we rerrain
from publishing lt.
RETALIATION.-On Wednesday evening Jas.
Johnson went to visit u friend, and llkicg the
quarters made an agreement to put up for the
night for fifty cents. He paid that sum, but when
about to retire, tbe friend refused unless an addi
tlonal fifty cents was paid. J. J. remonstrated,
and refuging to pay the additional amount, de?
manded his original Atty cents. The friend re?
fused and bade J. J. begone. He 1?re, but wa.'-:
passing out bagged a pair of gaiters lying on his
way our. The articles were missed, and Johnson
was arrested on suspicion. Being brought before
the Mayor he pleaded the original contract, which
the friend denied. The evidence being very con?
flicting, in consideration of the character of both
the parties, the Mayor discharged the prisoner,
and turned him and the prosecutor out of court.
CLUBS AND STARS.-An enthusiastic lover of
the drama, who ;could only console himself be?
tween the acts by repeated visits to a neighbor?
ing saloon, got excessively drunk before the end
ot the performance, and being "Trodden down"
during the play, railed to get on his rcet again.
A fileudly policeman assisted him to a bed In the
Gnardhonse, and he was liberated next morning
by the Mayor, with a Blight reprimand.
A young girl, white, was lodged for safekeep?
ing. She was supposed rp be Insane. Before the
Mayor her gentle demeanor affected every one,
but the vacancy and wildness of her replies
showed her to be laboring under a mental de?
rangement. She was referred to the city regis?
trar, who, upon examination, confirmed the im?
pression of the Mayor. The" patten t ls very quiet
Frank Amsterdam, lodged ror peddling shirts,
and hats without a license, had a preliminary
hearing and was held for examination.
ANOTHER BIGAMY CASE.-Billy Marlon was
brought before Trial Justice Magrath, yesterday
morning, charged with assaulting and bothering
his wire, Celia Marlon, who was thc prosecutor.
It seems that ror several years the couple had
been living In a state -or unbroken felicity lu the
city until a few days ago, when Satah Marion,
who claims to be Billy's firs: wife, arrived in the
city by his invitation, bringing her' four children
with her. What .followed was but the natural
consequence of having two wives married to tho
same man in one house. Billy was arrested for
assault and battery, and the new-comer for mall
dons trespass, ou the affidavit of the enraged
Delia, The cases were tried yesterday afternoon,
md both the defendants acquitted. A formal
separation was agreed upon between Celia and
Billy, and they departed to carry lt Into effect. In a
short time they returned in a high quarrel over
the partnership chattels, and wa/ited to know
"rom the trial Justice who was to have "de trying
pan, dc bedstead and de free* chairs." In the heat
af the discussion Celia again made her affidavit
before the trial justice of the presence and exist?
ence of the Irst wife and the four children, and,
going for her certificate of marriage, had Billy ar?
rested on the charge of bigamy. Billy claims not
to have been legally married to the first wife, but
that lt was in dave tunes, and "de boss tole him
to tek her, and he tuk her." He was bound over
for trial to-day, at which time the frying pan and
jed stead matter will also be adjusted.
TUE BENEFIT OF HARRT WATKINS.-A RARE
BILL.-To-night, at 'the Academy of Music,
mother new drama, written by Harry Watkins,
will be produced for the firs: time In this city. It,
ls entirled "A Warrior's Wire," and was perform?
ed lu New Orleans with the most unequivocal
success. The plot ls based on an Incident lu tho
history of a leading Southern ra.nlly during the
late war, and lt ls said by the press to "bring
vividly to mind a true picture or the sufferings
and privations or the once happy family circle;
demonstrating that heroic deeds were not con?
fined to brave men, but that the noble women of
our ?and displayed a heroism rivalling the truest
courage or the battlefield."
The performance will conclude with a eomic
drama of life, love and folly, entitled "Cleopatra,
or Caught at last," also written by Harry Wat?
kins. It has been repeatedly performed on the
New York stage, and the orttics speak of it as a
"delicious blt of fun-a sparkling vein or wit-and
a budget or comic idtnatlonB." Enough has been
said and seen of Harry Watkins as a play writer
and actor to make.it unnecessary to do more than
allude to the sprightly, natural and humorous
style In which he always holds the mirror up to
nature, and entraps the eyes and ears or his audi?
tors from the beginning to the end or a perform?
ance. A Southern audience will be sure to greet
him to-night, and be the weather fal r or foul, we
hope the house will be thronged from private box
"Kathleen Mavourneen" was given last night
with its usual success.
STRUCK BY LIGHTNING.-The violent thunder
storm which prevailed In the city on Wednesday
evening, did nor, it seems, pass off In a harmless
manner. Two distinct places in the city were
strnck, and both In the northwenern part of the
city, not far rrom Rutledge avenue. About hair
past 10 o'clock, on the night or the storm, Dr. S.
Uarleston'a residence, No. 04 Cannon street, was
struck by the lightning, but without any serious
damage. There being no lightning rod to thc
house the electric current ran down the chimney
Into the house, and pasted cd, lt ls supposed, by
the gas pipes. Two young ladies, members or the
family, were struck, and for a time rendered In?
sensible by the shock. The plastering was knock?
ed down in several places on the inside of the
house, but beyond this no damage was done.
On Rutledge avenne, one door rrom thc south?
east corner or Line street, a two story wooden
dwelling house was also struck with more seri?
ous consequences. The building was occupied
by a colored family named Turpin, nine In num?
ber, who had all gone- to bed, bat fortunately ail
or them were In the west Bide or the house. Be?
tween io and ll o'clock rue east chimney was
strnck, and the whole or the chimney above thc
housetop waa knocked off. Tbe weatherboard?
ing on the northeast side of the house was torn
oil to the ground, and a dog which was sleeping
under that corner of thc house wo* killed out?
right. Strange te say, the inhabitants or the
western part of the house were not affected by
the current, but, understanding the canse or the
trouble on the other side or the house, raised a tre.
m end one outcry. A small boy, who was probably
bit ty one of the others In the rumpus, declared
himself struck on the head, and, thinking the
lightning was the only person capable of sucha
feat, the crowd cleared out. Alter some time
confidence was restored, and to-day the family
COTTON, &c, POR LIVERPOOL.-Messrs. J. A.
Baslow A Co: yesterday cleared for Liverpool the
following va'nable cargo, per British bark Sabra
Moses : ill bags sea Uland cotton, 1970 bales op
land cotton, 212 sacks cotton seed, and 280 tons
. CRUMBS.-McKean Buchanan, the tragedian,
was announced to appear la Augusta last night.
The good citizens or Augusta have been In ?
perspiration of delight for the last week over a
fashionable maiqueradc ball which took place
there, on Tuesday night. Our country cousins
should come to Charleston and see bow such
things aro done here.
The Mount Pleasant Ferry wharf is undergoing
much needed repairs under the superintendence
of Mr. Thomas Black.
A copy of the Sooth Carolina State Gazette and
Dally Advertiser, printed In 1785, has been amaz.
lng the optics of the editor of the Wilmington
Star. He describes lt as a 6x9 paper, printed lu
Charleston, "by J. Miller, printer to the State,
