D. H. Chamberlain's Farewell
PEOPLE OF SO. CAROLINA.
I am sitting on the train to-night,
With carpet-tag by my Bide,
Which I with plunder well have filled
Since the "Sunny South" I tried.
The scene is greatly changed. I feel
I'm bluer now than then;
And I still keeplist'ning for the shout
Of those fierce, red-shirt men.
Farewell, yc yelling rebel crew
Of "cavalier" descent;
Most cavalierly did yc act
NY hen 1 to Kdgctield went.
I played "reform" to win your votes;
My purpose you unmasked;
The bayonet pointed at your throa's
Is the revenge I've nsked.
The sentry walk? hin daily rounds
Within your^tatc House walls;
Where civil rule once sat enthroned
The drummer beats his calls.
Who steals my good name steals but trash;
My wealth is in thin bag;
Where blue I'cnobscot'.s wa'.eru dash
1 go to save my "?wag."
Shoemaker first and Governor but;
My pride nan had a fall;
In politics I have pegged out,
A ud I may lose my alL
The State I ruled is now redeemed,
The people nt me scoff,
And, having taken all things else,
M vself 1 now lake off.
The Answer of the People
D, II. I'llAM HEPLAIN.
Go, traitor! (Jo! Thy broken trust
Is luoniunentnl crime;
Wcsparethy life,for God isjust,
And we will hide Ilia time.
The rifles in yon granite pile
Hut symbol tliy career?
Through all the years thy party ruled
The St ate wan riflvd there.
Tlicjarring drum-beat's signal note,
That drownsonr churcluheU'a chimes
Shall he forgot; Inn history keeps
The record of thy crimes.
Thy legislative liayonets gleam
Above our L.oken laws;
Thy country's constitution pierced
'J o stab the peoples'* cause.
Though we havequnffed the bitter cup
Held by thy stranger hand,
This law inviolate we keep,
And spurn thee from the land.
We stand beneath the Union Hag,
Still trusting in our right:
Hut press im not; a people wronged
May kliow a people's might.
No "State rightshrery" now clouds
The justice of our cause;
No shade of slavery now dims
The lustre of our laws.
Go hack to thy far Northern home,
Thou thing that freemen hate 1
Go live, the scorn ofhoncst men,
I'ehaucher of the State!
The clouds that on our hopes you cast
Time soon shall drift away;
Tue morning light is breaking fast
On a new and brighter day.
Here where you sowed the needs of strife
Two races blessed shall stand;
Their rights inviolate maintained,
While justice rides the land.
The law supreme in peace shall sway
TJu soldier and bis sword;
And all shall bless the happy day
They trusted Hampton's word.
Judge T. J. M.
The Owner ok the New York
Herald House-Whipped by
Miss May's Brother.
The mar ringe of Miss Caroline
May to Mr. .Tarne? G. Bennett; the
proprietor of the Herald, was to have
been solemnized tc-'lay by Cardinal
McCloskey. Mr. Bennett had desired
that the marriage should not he a
public display, and Miss May con
curred. It wits agreed that the couple
should sail for England just after tho
marriage, and state rooms riehly ar
ranged for the bridal party had been
engaged. Miss May's bridal outfit
bad been received from Paris at a
cost of 820,000, and she hnd been
congratulated on her prospective wed
ding. Lately, however, some stories
had come to her ears of Mr. Bennett's
actions, and' yesterday it was an
nounced that by mutual agreement
the match had been broken off. Mr.
Bennett frankly acknowledged that
his behavior warranted Miss M ay's
action in asking to be released.
80011 after 2 o'clock this afternoon,
the habitues of the Uuion Club, were
startled by the information, which
sped like wild fire through the build
ing, that Mr. Bennett was being as
saulted by Sir. Frederick May, on the
sidewalk, in front of the club house.
The members of the club were aware
of the fact that the struggle might
end in a tragedy, as May was known
to have been iu a defperatc moud
since Saturday. Mr. May is the
brother of Miss Caroline May. He is
an athlete, and has been very indig
nant concerning Mr. Bennett's treat
ment of his sister, and bad traced Mr.
Bennett to the Jnion Club building.
Mr. May is not a member of the
club, and therefore did not enter and
there encounter Mr. Bennett. ' As he
stood near the 1 ailingiii Twenty-first
street, several friends passed and
noticed that he was much agitated,
and that he kept a sharp watch upou
the entrance to the club house. Mr.
Bennett was within enjoying refresh
ments. He was unaccompanied, and
hi? acquaintances noted that his
jollity was artificial. He sent a
message ior his sleigh, and when il
arrived at the door, he prepared him
self ior a ride to Centiul I'ark. He
wore a long coat and a jaunty cap,
and a splendid silk handkerchief was
wound around his neck. He seemed
much annoyed at the watchfulness of
the club people.
When Mr. Bennett lighted a
cigarette in the large hallway of the
club bouse und started toward die
street, the door was opened wide tit?
him by the attendant'" Mr. Bennett
slowly descended the staircase, and
just as he reached the sidewalk Mr
May confronted him. Mr. Bennett
stepped backward, and Mr. May drew
a small whip from his great cout, and
with much force and rapidty struck
Mr. Bennett across the face three
times. Blood streamed from gashes
under his Jeyes, and from a frightful
cut on his nose. He staggered for a
moment und then threw himself upon
Mr. May. They clinched, but Mr.
May being the more powerful of the
two, forced himself from Mr. Bennetts
grasp. At this the latter made
another lunge at Mr. May, who
struck at him from the shoulder, and
.Mr. Bennett fell nt full length on the
sidewalk. Blood stained the snow
from the sidewalk to the gutter.
Attaches of the club house and
pedestrains ran to Mr. Beimel's assis
tance. No one attempted to stop Mr.
May, who, with his hands iu his pock
ets, walked leisurely toward Fifth
Mr. Bennett was carried into the
house and his face bathed, His sleigh
was sent away and a cab was ordered
Then he was taken to his home in
Fifth ' avenue, where he was attended
by his physician. He will not be
ablo to be out for several days, being
fearfully cut and bruised.
Police officers near the club house
said they knew nothing of the fight,
although five minutes after it happen

William May, Frederick's brother,
was in the club house, this evening,
for a few moments, lie said at first,
he did not care to talk of the aif air
Then he said to one of his friends:

Their Operations in Charleston?
How they Pass the Queer?A
Chance for the Detectives.
9 Columbia, January 7.?On Tues
day, a young colored man, giving his
name as Barney Hcnd ricks, appeared
at the Station-house, in this city, and
desired to surrendor himself. lie stat
ed to the Journal of Commerce ro
porter this evening, that he left New
?York six months ngo, as the body
?Servant of a party, composed of John
jMorris, William Clark, Joo Cobbins,
Tom Murphy and Joe Heilly. The
object of this gnng was the distribn
tion of counterfoil money, which thoy
'seem to have done very sueccsalullj'^.
Heudricks says he left them hero, be
cause they lefused to pay him in any
thing but the "queer," which he was
afraid to use.
The party, he says, have been] out
some six months, having visited,
among other places, Baltimore,
Augusta and Charleston. At the bit
;ter place the gang stopped at a house
of ill fame near the Citadel Gretn,
and passed during their stay about
8500. They had dies and stamps with
them, and manufactured some money
while iu Charleston. The party, he
thinks, returned to Charleston from
here. He says their stock when lie. left
consisted of $5,000 iu $10 notes of the
First National Bank of New York,
$400 in 81 United States ereasury
notes, $300 iu fifty emits pieces, and
$300 iu five cent nicklcs.
. He claims to have travelled trough
England and the United States with
the gang, which he says consists of
sNew York roughs, one of whom was
formerly connected with the United
Scutes Treasury Department, mid
stole the dies.
Heudricks says he was engaged
^vith 'the gang in the" robbery of the
United States mails on the New York
and Erie Knilroad two years ago.
He seems to he intelligent, ami his
story is believed in police cirules.
A Hi; at, IIoohif.u Drink.?An
Indiniiiaii went into a Chicago saloon,
ami asked for "a gin cocktail with
some strength into it." The bur
keeper made a mixture of alcoh ol,
pepper sauce, absinthe, limes, and
painkiller. "The Indianiau drank
it," aaya the Chicago Tribune, "and
about a quart of tears came to his
eyes, his mouth contracted to about
the size of a safe key hole, and when
he had sufficiently mastered his emo
tion to speak, he said, 'How much's
that ?' 'Fifteen cents,' respondod the
barkeeper. The customer put down
a quarter and said, 'Keep the change
?have something yourself;' then
wringing the barkeeper's hand, he'
added, 'That's the first good gin I've
tasted since I left home--sumething
like liquor; it's sort of quick in taking
hold and slow in letting go. Come
and see me, and I'll give you some
corn wdiiskey that's better, still?
whiskey that's like swallowing a cir
cular saw whole and pulling it up
again.' The barkeeper, an hour
Inter, asked the patrolman if he had
heard of an old man being found dead
ou the sidewalk, and when the officer
said no, he du iced a few jig steps,
and cried, 'Hurrah, he's gone some
where else to die !"

by him is as follows:

I am going to >e!l. In Texas wo use
rawdiide sirups, or thongs, for traces,
and in wet weather they do stretch
amazingly. Why, often in damp
weather at h one I've hitched up two
horses and drove down the hill from
my house into the creok bottom for a
sled load of wood. I havo loaded the
wool and many times driven back
homo and unhitched the horses and
the sled would not he in sight."
"How did you get the wood home
"Oh. I just tied the ends of the
traces together end threw them over
a post, went knocking ahout my
work and waited till the sun shone
out. Sometimes ii would be more
than two hours before that sled load
of wood would get home, but you'd
see her crawling up the hill at last,

per lengths. Yea, Texas is a great
country, you bet."?Grccncastlc Slur.
