Fourth of July Celebration.
Dean Swamp, Upper Orangeburi;,
July 7th. 1877.
Kill tor Orangcbtirg News and Times :
Hoping you may not take it amiss
to receive a report of a fourth of July
celebration hehl in this far off section
of the county, therefore I tako the
liberty of sending you this one. On
the 5th of January last, it was agreed
by the survivors of the Old E.listo
Dragoons, now formed into a club,
known as the Mdisto Dragoon Re-Un
ion Club, to celebrate the dth of July
with a pic-nic, provided Hampton
was made Governor: So when we
were satisfied on that point, the de
signs ol our club were made known
I and the citizens of this and adjoining
Counties, were invite I toonuanT
make glad the day with us.
At an early hour they came, flock
ing in from every direction, and ere
long the place looked like a -1th of
duly of boyhood memory. The people
did not come empty handed cither, as J
iliu long ecu're table could testify, if j
it could speak, of the load it gro.ui3 1
under that day.
At about eleven A. M., the crowd
was notified that the ceremonies of
the. day would commence. Maj. J.
II. Morgan, President of our club,
made a few brief and pertiuant re
marks, setting forth th" purpose of
our coming together and the order
of the day. Then was offered up by
the Rev. E. A. Price, a very grateful
prayer to our Heavenly Father for
His kind protection of us all. Then
:he reading of the Dcclcration of
Independence by the Secretary of the
? dub. Now came the part to please
the babies and frighten the horses, the
tiring of a four guu battery of an
vils, which was done much to the
credit of the gunner. Thirteen guns
were fired for the origanial thirtceu
States. Thirty-two for our State, one
for each county, then two for the re
cent Democratic victories of our
county, Dibble for Representative
and Glover for Judge of Probate.
Idnner came next, and such a dinner
it was as made all hearts glad and
satisfied the longing of the most ex
acting up] e:ites amongst us. AU ato
to their fill, and enough left to put a
broad grin upon the face of many of
our colored friends who were there
to luok on or assist in any thing we
might request of them. After dinner
we spent sotno two hours in social
chit-chat, and then ro-appeared to
the region ot the battery to finish up
the day with a grand salute for
Hampton. The gunners were
promptly to their post, when firing
commenced and was continued in
quick succession until the powder
was consumed, probably somo htuid
red guns were fired in this filial sa
lute. Long 'may Hampton live and
the dth of July bo remembered by
Carolina's grateful sous.
The thirteen regular tosts, which
was read at the conclusion of the
reading of the Dcclcration of Inde
pendence, I forgot to insert until now,
which were as follows:

Bread Upon the Waters.
Behind Squire Hilton's house was
a patch of" cleared and well-kept
woodland, known to all the neighbor
hood as "Tho Grove > Whenever
the Sunday School desired a pic-nic,
tho squire was waited upon, und as a
matter of course, couscntod to its bc
ings used. At other limes, any one
hud the privilege of walking iherc;
and the childi en came in the spring
to gather wild flowers, or in the
autumn to gather nuts. Therefore
the boy who sat upon the rough
wooden bench lilted between two
trees, with his head upon his hands
was not trespassing.
He was a tall, gaur.t boy, with his
sixteenth birthday close before him.
His clothes were threadbare, but ho
had a decent look. Ho was past the
age at which boys generally indulge
in tears, but he was crying. Indeed,
he had come to that place for the ex
press purpose of indulging his feel
ings unobserved. His hope of soli -
tu do"- proved a vain one, however.
Engrossed in his grief, he had not
heard the sound of footsteps, when,
looking up, ho saw standing before
him a girl of fifteen. Squire Hilton's
only daughter, born when his days
were on the very verge of winter?
herself tbc perfect embodiment of
She was a happy creature,.who had
never known care, who never though t
it possible that she could wish for
anything she might not have; one
who knowing herself rich aud beauti
ful, but without^pri Je or vanity, lov
ed her father and mother intensely,
and with good will for a world in
which she as yet knew not that there
was any harm. A girl who in virtue
of~^'rfstocrtt!io- 1 position-iu that New
England village, was as much under
espionage as any French girl ever
was. Yet with this advantage, she
had no idea sho was guarded or that
there was anything not to be known
by her, or any one she might not know .
Therefore, knowing no reason'why]
she should not address anyone, aud
knowing the by aiuuo, she .stood look
ing at him a moment, and thcu said
'Why, Edward Burr! what is tho
matter? Oh, I know; I. heard of it;
your father is dead. I am very sorry.'
'It's not very manly to cry, Miss
Hilton,' said the boy, standing up,
and composing bis features as well as
he could; 'but I could not help it; ho
was all I had, and it was so sudden. I
didn't mean any ono should see mo,
'Boys and men must have feelings
aa well as girls and women,'said
Pheiuie Hilton. 'I should break my
heart if dear papa shoul die; and you
haven't any mother, have you ?'
'I have nobody,'said the boy, 'and
I bate the place. I couldn't work
here now, since I've sceu father cut
down by that horriblo machine. I
am going to the city?to Now York,
Mif-s Hilton; I'm going to walk there.
Do you know how long it will
'How long!' cried Phemie; 'why
you could never walk there; it takes
days by tho.cars and boat; and why
do you go to New York ?'
'I must,' said the boy. lI can
make my fortune there; father always
'Yes, my father says New York is
tho place to make money,' said Phe
mie; 'but you must have some money
to begin with. Have you any !'
'Twenty-live cents,' said the boy.
'Then you'd starvo to death whero
you had no friends/ said the young
girl, with an air of great wisdom and
experience. 'But papa knows every
thing. Come homo with mo and ask
his advice; he'll tell you what to do.
If anybody can tell you what'to do, it
is my papa.'
'But I haven't any business to
bother him about myself,' said tho
boy. ?I don't think he'll like it. He'll
'I'll tell him I mado you come.
Y'ou needn't bo afraid of papa; bo's
as kind as kind can be. Come, now.'
Much against his will, Edward
I Hurt* followed MissTIilton through
the woods and Across the lawn that
?iicircled the squire's mansion. More
against his will, he entered the broad
hall and the study door;
'If the squire kicks me out, I de
serve it,' he said. And.with bis hat
in Iiis hand, he stood gazing in great
confusion at the old white-headed
gentleman, who, to his simple mind,
represented the wealth and aristocra
cy of the. laud. A king could not
have awed his humblest subject more,
though Edward knew nothing of
kings and would have declared, if
questioned, that every in all was equal.
The squire looked up; his wife laid
down the embroidery at which she
was at work. The unwilling visitor
feared that he was expected to say
something, and had no idea what
words to utter which would fitly con
vey bis cbmprchciuion of the impro
priety of his intrusion on a strange
household, littt I'liotnio saved him
'Papa/ she saiil, 'ibis poor Mr.
Burr's son, and lie is going to New
York, to seek his .fortune, without
any money but twenty live cents, and
I made him coiiio to you to get
advice. I di ln't think ho could
manage. What do you think ?'
'/> fter I have talked with the
young man, I'll know bettor/ said tho
The end of the talk was, that the
squire said to Edward Burr,??
'I think you're a boy with a will,
and where there's a will there's a
way, I'll give you a start. Take this
note to Mr. B-?, No.
Street, ami he will give you cmploj

York and lit you out so that you
won't starve for a week after that.
Go ahead. : You'vo got it all in your,

'Oh, papa, you are so kind !' said
Pheinie, as the wntchcd the boy out
Now who knows what may come of
that? The broad was cast upon the
waters without a thought that it
might return after many days.

Ten years had elapsed, and Phcmic
Hilton sat in a shabby little room in
.New York city, wondering where sho .
could find bread the next day. The
old squire had been dead two years, j
and beforo ho had been tempted into I
