COLUMBIA, S. C.
Tueiday Morning, Joly 13. 1868.
R?v. KOBBBT Winson.-We clip from
the Chester bo wa (Md.) Transcript the
following complimentary notico of the
gentleman whose name hoads this notice.
Rev. Robert Wilson is a clergyman of
the Episcopal Ohuroh, and a graduate of
the University of Virginia. The Trans?
cript B&JB: . .
"A marriage, with no, is an event; for
everybody, and the rest of mankind,
flock ont to old St. Paul's to see the two
made one flesh. Apropos, that old
church presented a beautiful appearance
on Whitsunday and Trinity, decked off
in wreaths ana bunches of white flowers,
the walls, newly white-washed, affording
appropriate respeot to the time of the
? year. This, in direct contrast with the
becoming and variegated dresses of the
ladies, formed a picturesque scene of de?
votion that can be met with only in a
rural congregation; tb o simplicity, in
oar opinion, more to be admired than
all the display of some city temples, of
late so costly and so vain.
"The solemnity and appropriateness
of the worship was heightened by the
eloquently able sermon of our minister.
Mr. Wilson's sermons are not only inte?
resting, but practical and instructive.
one can listen to his handling of a
text and go away unsatisfied. He evades
no points of difficulty; he overlooks co
doctrinal dissensions ; but, with an
honesty that is refreshing, goes right on
to the difficulties that are in the way of
the seeker ofter the one true faith; and,
although we know him as yet only ns a
preacher, and not as a pastor, owing to
his having no conveyance, still sinco his
ministry not only has the church held
her own, bat the glebe has been vastly
improved, and a confirmation class
formed. In truth, he, aided and assisted
by the vestry and ladies of the parish,
has made the wilderness to 'bloom as the
rose,' for where all was sedge, now vege?
tation grows; and in fitting np the
grounds where nil was chaos, now 'order
reigns supreme;' nod neatness and com?
fort invite. The congregation have no?
bly done their part; but he has not been
idly awaiting their action; he has pressed
right on, surmounting all difficulties,
putting his shoulder to the wheel, and
now is repaid with the satisfaction that
a vast deal of this is his own handiwork.
Long may St. Paul's flourish as now she
seems to under his guidance, 'mid all
difficulties nod trials, until 'her children
arise up and call her blessed.' The
grounds around tho churoh are as beau?
tiful as over, and nicely kept, showing
no abatement of the zeal of those who
have in charge this 'city of the dead.' "
This gentleman, the Rev. Robert Wil?
son, was a citizen of Columbia, and an
occasional contributor to the South Caro?
linian. We tako pec.inr pleasure in thc
favorable impression which our old
friend he>s made iu Maryland, and we
gladly give our congratulation to Mary?
land, that it has secured the services ol

How SHALL THE NEOBOES LIVE?-A
radical correspondent asks the editor ol
the Louisville Courier-Journal how tin
negroes of the South are to live if UH
Southern States aro to be flooded witl
Chinese? To which ho replies, perhaps
they eau live by voting and offico-seok
ing, and these aro kinds of work fo:
which they are probably not too lazy
We have, adds the Courier-Journal, beoi
assured by the Democratic organs o
Virginia that tho negroes of that State
with scarcely a single exception, regis
tered their names and would vote for th
unexpurgated constitution, and we hav
no doubt that they did so. This consti
tution provides that nearly tho wholo o
the disfranchised white people bball re
main disfranchised and bo governed b;
the blacks, and that they shall be incom
potent to hold ornee. Thousands of thes
negroes will soou be applying to th
mm, whom they have voted to degrade
and seeking from thom situations as hi
borers and all other kinds of favors; bu
if wo were in those white men's place?
wo would, with nil our pity for th
wretched negroes, sootier throw on
money in the river than bestow one do]
lnr of it upon them except in case c
absolute necessity. We should scorn t
tolerate a negro upon our premises wh
had voted for tho privilego of pattie
his foot upon our necks. The negror.
have all been warned, a thousand time
over, of the inevitable consequence t
themselves of tho coarse they were pm
suing, and they will deserve no sympi

Th? Consolidation or tit? Charlotte, Co?
lombia ?ad Autuita Railroad.
MR. EDITOR: In yonr issue of July
10th there is au article headed "In Me?
moriam," that'* betrays great ignorance
and does injustice to the throe worthy
gentlemen, whose epitaph the olaasio
oulogist records. Ho sara Qeu. Wade

opposed consolidation, and were left ont
in the new Board of Directors because
they defended the interests of Columbia,
and did not desire to see the capital a
Where he obtained bis information,
that those geutlemen opposed consolida?
tion, I am at a loss to discover, certainly
not from anything that transpired at the
stockholders' meeting, for lhere, as the
official proceedings will show, the only
question in dispute was tho terms of con?
solidation, not the question of consolida?
tion, but upon what terms it should be
effected. Col. Gibbes' resolutions fa?
vored consolidation upon tho terms of
four shares of Columbia and Augusta
Railroad stock for one share in the
Charlotte and South Carolina Railroad,
and bis resolution was supported by the
votes of Gen. Hampton and Col. Childs,
thus proving that they were in favor of
consolidation upon certain terms, and
such as affected only their individual and
personal interests, and evinced no more
consideration for what the classic "epi
taphist" mistakenly considers the inte?
rests of Columbia, tuan the resolutions of
tho joint committee, which ^fTected the
trade on different terms. At tue meet?
ing of stockholders, not ono word was
said by either of the three gentlemen
named in opposition to consolidation,
and tho only argument and dispute was
us to the trade of tho stocks of tho two
roads-a question that had no relation
whatever to the interests of Columbi?.
It is hardly necessary to say that your
contributor's fears, that Columbia would
degenerate into n mere way-side station,
are his peculiar property, and certainly
cannot be shared by any intelligent citi?
zen of Columbia, either in or out of the
now directory. She is a competing
point, and as such, can always dictate, in?
stead of being dictated lo. The South
Carolina Railroad can make a bid for
freight to and from nearly all of tho main
points served by tho consolidated road,
and other lines that aro projected will
soon bc competing for her trade. Hence,
Columbia can readily eeo that she is in
no danger of becoming a way-sido sta?
tion, and intercepting tho strange mes?
senger to Lacedemon, she sends him
back, with an epitaph for the restiug
pluce of your classic contributor, thus:
"Friends, forgive him; he knew not whnt
he did." V.
DEATH FROM CORPULENCE.-On Tues?
day afternoon last, Mrs. Elisha Ogborn,
aged forty, wife of Mr. "Wm. P. Ogborn,
who resideson Ridge Road, Roxborough,
near Philadelphia, died of sullocation
from excessive corpulence. She weighed
430 pounds two years ago, but those who
kuow her intimately say she must have
weighed GOO pounds at the time of her
death, as she had not been able to move
about much for the last-" year or two.
Owing to her great weight, she was
obliged to sit on a sort of box, as no
chair could be found large or strong
enough to bear. her. In dying, Mrs. O.
fell to tho floor, and it was tue utmost
that six stout men could do to raise her,
by means of the carpet, on the bed.
Five tried, but failed. It was then
thought best to remove the body to tho
ground floor of the house, and some
eight or ten men wore required for that
service. The coffin was threo feet wide,
and there wero twelve pall-bearers.
BALLOON* UP FOR THE NORTH POLE.
French journals mention the construc?
tion of a balloon designed to go to the
North Polo. Tho most distinguished
mronauts in France are interested in the
project, and Government aids it. Tho
balloon is made of some very elastic fa?
bric, which will swell in the upper and
more rarefied air, and make room for tho
expansion of gas without bursting. It is
tho largest ever made, and will carry ton
persons, supplies for months, and -1,000
pounds of ballast. With this ?erial ve?
llido, tho voyagers expect to settle thc
question of an open polar sea, nud dis?
perso all tho other mysteries of that por?
tion of the globo. Frenoh scientists do
not ridicule the undertaking; though, on
tho other hand, thoy do not pin their
faith on it. They aro willing to wait and
see what will come of the enterprise.
IMPORTANT RUMORS FROM FRANCE.
Cable telegrams allude- to changes of un
extensive character. The French Em?
peror, taking his cuo evidently from tho
results of tho late elections, is willing to
surrender in n measuro tho arbitrary
power which ho has wielded sinco his
assumption of the imperial purple. Per?
sonal government is to be abandoned
at least such is tho indication-to make
way for a government more iu harmony
with tho wishes of tho French people.
Napoleon, learning another lesson from
tho past, and desirous of acceding to tho
aspirations of his subjects, is about to
enter upon a policy which, while it is at
variance with Napoleonic touchings, is
such as will increase his popularity at
home and claim additional consideration
for intelligence as a ruler abroad.
A negro boy, on tho night of the 23d
ult., attempted to commit a rape upon
tho person of a whito widow lady, re?
siding near Goodman, but was fright?
ened off by the screams of tho lady's lit?
tle daughter. Tho boy was arrested and
confessed tho crime, and was taken by a
squad towards Durant. On reaching tho
Dig Black bridge, he was taken from the
squad by several unknown persons, and
it is supposed he. committed suicide, ns

TU o Court- W. J. Whlppsr.
We neglected to state last week that
the court adjourned op Monday, the 28th
ult. The criminal business occupied the
court only four days, when the juries
were discharged, and the court adjourn?
ed to Monday morning, foe the trial of
the civil business. One of the juries
had eleven negroes on it, and the other
nine. The lawyers agreed to dispense;
with them, preferring to try their, cases
before the Judge alone. By this course,
the docket was rapidly gone through,
and more work done in ono dey than
would have been accomplished in a
week if all the cases tried by the Judge
alone had been submitted to a jury.
W. J. Whipper, one of tbe codifiers of
the laws of the Stato, was in attendance
during the trial of tho criminal cases, but
as we did not hear him except iu an as?
sault and battery case, we could form no
just estimate of his ability as a mau, or
of his erudition ns a lawyer. The follow?
ing order taken out by him while here
gives abundant evidence of his qualifica?
tions and fitness as a codifier of the laws
of the State:
"The State of South carolina, } Indilement
vz. \ for
- ) Larceny.
The Grand Jury haveing been dis?
charged and no Bill giveing out in the
above case, on motion of W. J. Whipper
atty for Defendant it is ordered that the
Defendant bo discharged from custody
Who after this will say, he is not a fit
and proper person for the great work
the right man in the right place-and a
worthy successor of the great and learned
James Li. Petigrn?
The following facts, which were detail?
ed in his presence on the stand by tho
witnesses in an assault and battery cuse,
demonstrate his aptness and skill in put?
ting a stop to those kiuds of prosecu?
tions. A very respectable aud intelligent
freedman was indicted for having tied
and switched a negro boy who assisted
in stealing from him fifteen or sixteen
dollars in gold and silver coin. Shortly
aftor this occurrence, Squire Whipper
visited Georgetown for tho purpose of
assisting Parson Whittemore in giving a
proper direction to the political thoughts
of the freedmen and scalawags here. Ho
heard of the case. It was a dreadful
thing to whip a thief caught with thc
stolen articles on him. Whipping was a
badge of slavery, and for it to be resort?
ed to by one who was so lately "redeem?
ed, regenerated and disenthralled," was
perfectly hoirible iu itself, and dread?
fully offensive to the Young Negro Men's
Association. The church took the mat?
ter in hand, and said "let us have peace;"
but tho association said you may cry
"pence, but there is no peace." One of
our brethren has been whipped for steal?
ing money, and the offender must bo
punished. In this condition of things,
Squire Whipper was consulted. Squire
Whipper sent for his offending brother,
impressed him with the grave nature of
his offence, and offered to sto he prose?
cution against him if ho wo 1 pay him
twenty-five dol?ais cash down, and pro?
mise to pay tho thief twenty-five dollars
at some future day. Tho twenty-five
dollars wero promptly paid to Squire
Whipper, who put it in bis pocket, say?
ing bo would get tho Attorney-General
to enter a nol. pros, in the caso-that be
would keep only five dollars for himself,
and the remaining twenty should be ap?
plied to the costs of the case. All of
which Squire Whipper forgot to do. He
forgot to pay the costs. Ho forgot to
I have tho nol. pros, entered in the case,
and tho result was, that his victim had
to stand his trial, with Squire Whipper
quietly looking on with his twenty-live
dollars in his pocket, and offering no
word of explanation for his conduct.
We hnvo uo comment *o make, further
than to say, that there was a day in
South Carolina when .. white man,
for couduct less reprehensible, would
have been stricken from tho roll of at?
torneys, aud very probably indicted for
swindling; while in these days of igno?
rance and unblushing impudence, a
member of the bar, who is also a member
of the Legislature and ono of the codi?
fiers of the laws of the State, is suffered
to go unpunished, for no other reason
that we can conceivo of except that he is
an illiterate negro. - Georgetown Times.
AN UGLY PIECE OF BUSINESS.-On the
night of the 25th of May last, after tho
election for Coroner at Pleasant Lane, u
negro mau named Benben Smyly, living
on the plantation of Hansom Mimmer
man, Esq., was very severely beaten by
parties still unknown. On Wednesday
last, this negro died. A coroner's in?
quest was hold upon tho body, by
Lemuel Corley, Esq., and tho verdict
rondered, was, if we mistake not, that
tho deceased carno to his death from tho
effects of tho beating received on the
25th of May. Several gentlemen of the
Pleasant Limo neighborhood are being
implicated, by tho reports of negroes, in
this affair; but as yet no arrests have been

The artificial ice machines are not

died, one was lately thrown from bis
horse and killed, n fifth is in jail for

I tho war did not end in a fortnight, instead

as fair as Parian marble. Ask the once
jaundiced victim of liver complaint.
Ask that once poor emaciated form, the
subject of female irregularities, what
brought about such a marvelous phange.

It is said that tho proprietors of the
celebrated PLANTATION BITTERS rent no
less than nine pews from the different
denominations in New York city for all
those of their employees who will occupy
them regularly, free of charge. This is
cortoiuly praiseworthy, and it is to be
hoped that others who employ a large
number of people will follow the exam?

tho belief that a firm who would look 30

their exployecB, would not undertake to
impose upon tho public, has induced us
to give tho PLANTATION BITTERS a trial,
and having found them to be all that is
represented, wc cordially recommend
them as a tonic of rare merit.
