On Thursday night, the anniversary
f the birth of the Rev. John Bach

was the first time in the history of
this institution of learning that exer

audience was most delightfully
ytertained with music by the college
'hestra and the Glee club.
Rev. J. D. Bowles, of Coronaca,
opened the exercises with prayer, af
ter which President J. H. Harms in a
few well chosen words explained Ahe
Ira son the day had been set apart as
a holiday at Newberry college. He
Itated that by a very wise enac.tment
under a very wise statute of Newber
ry college the fourth of February 'had
been set apart to be known as Foun

ihat this day has been selected be
cause it was the anniversary of the
birthday of one who perhaps more
Sthan any other one person had exer

1818, recommended the founding of
the theological and classieal insti,tu
'tion at Lexington which in time grew
to be Newberry college. It was he
who was so actively interested in the
establishment of the college at New
berry in 1855, and his na.me heads the
list of i'ncorporators in the charter
granted -the institution by the State
legislature in 1856. It 'is, therefore,
eminently fitting that, on this his
birthday, we should review briefly
the life and character of this eminent
man who during his lifetime played
such an important part in the history
of our ehurch and college.
"John Bachman was born in the
little town of Rheinbeek, N. Y., on
the 4th of February, 1790. His par
ents were plain German people, noted,
however, for their sturdiness and deep
piety. Lit.tle is known of his early
life except that, while yet a mere boy,
he showed a most unusual fondness
for natural history. He would spend
hours upon hours, in roaming through
the mountains which surrounded his
home. Being very anxious to possess
some books on natural history, and
having no means wherewith to pur
hase them, he set 'to work to earn
the necessary money by eatching
beaver and other fur-bearing animals,
and s'elling their skins. With the as
sistance of his brother he in time hap
pily secured sufficient funds to pur
chase the coveted books. As a boy
he was strong in body, buoyant of
spirit, hopeful in temperment, and
very fond of outdoor games. This
~buoyancy and hopefulness he retained
throughout his life. In the course of
a few years he entered William Col
lege, at Williamston, Mass. Here he
buckled down to his studies with ex
eptional assiduity; so much so that
even his iron constitution gave way,
and to his great disappointment, he
was forced to leave college without
his degrees, 'and to seek his lost
h.alth in the mountain air of his
home. It was a bit'ter ,trial for the
ambitious youth, but his spirit was
not broken. After 'a period of rest
and recuperation, he again took up
his studies, this time privately, and
soon -afterwards decided to prepare
himself for ,the Christian ministry.
He spent several years of ~study un
der his pastor and in Philadelphia,
nd in 1813 became the pastor of his

IVE will by presenting the sam
'home church. It was in 1815 that he
received an urgent -eall from St.
John's eongregation, Charleston, to
become its pastor. After careful con
sideration, he decided -to accept the
call and go South, and this same year
commenced his remarkable pastorate
at St. John's, which continued for a
period of 50 years, and ended only
with his dleath in 1875. Not long af
,ter his arrival in Charleston he was
united in marriage to Miiss Harriet
Martin, daughter of Rev. John M.
Martin, and their union was blessed
with a large family of devoted child
ren. The young minister plunged in
to his newv work with a zeal and a
tat that led to an abundant prosper
itv in the affairs of his church, and
which attracted the at-tention of his
fellow ministers- in the city and State.
He was elected president of the new
ly born ,South Carolina Synod for
eight successive terms, and, to use the
words of a contemporary, was 'the
leading spirit of .the body.' 'In 1835
the degree of D. D. was conferred up
on him by Pennsylvania college. It
was in the fall of 1831, that Dr. Bach
man formed an acquaintanceship
which influenced greatly his whole
future. The great ornithologist, Au
dubon, visited Charleston at that time,
and before he left the city he and Dr.
Bachman were fast friend. From
this time on Dr. Bachiman pursued his
studies in natural history with in
creasing interest, and together with
Audubbn commenced to labor on that
monumental work which bears the
name of the la.tter, 'Audubon's
Birds of America,' but in the pre
paration of which the former had no
mean part. On account of failing
health Dr. Baehman was compelled to,
go to Eu rope in 1836. Here he met
many distinguished scientists, among
them the great Humboldt, and was
everywhere kindly received. After
his return to America, he, in 1838, re
eived the honorary degree of Doctor
of Philosophy from the University of
'Berlin in recogien of his scienti
fi labors, and in Lae years that fol
lowed he was elected member of al
most every scientific association in
Ameria and Europe. In 1347 an
other great scientific work, p)repared
by Audubon and himself, appeared.
This ,time it was the "Quardrupeds
of Audubann." About this time he

"Dr. Bachiman, with his church and
scientific work, was already a very
busy man, but in 1848, he accepted
the ehair of Natural History in the
college of Charleston, at the end of
which he was forced by the pressure
of church duties to give up this posi
tion. For some years the stream of
his life iflowed smoothly and rapidly
on until in 1853 a notable .religious
controversy broke out in the city of
Charleston. A Roman Catholic ald
erman published what he denominat
ed, "awful disclosures'' professing to
convict Martin Luther of immoral
teahing. Dr. Baehman felt it to be
his duty to take up the gauntlet thus
thrown down, and he did so with a
telling vigor, much to the delight of
his friends and the discomfiture of
his foes. From that time on his pub
lie life was not particularly 'eventful.
During the dark days of the Civil
War and of Reconstruetion, he re
mined faithfully at his posat except
when he was on the bat-tlefield minis
tering to the wants of the wounded
soldiers. Towards the end of the six
ties he began to show signs of feeble
ness, and he grew gradually weaker
and weaker until in 1875 he breathed
his last. Amid the lamentations of a
whole city he was laid to rest in a
vault beneath the altar of the chureh
he had so faithfully served.''
At the close of this sketch the Glee
Club Sang, "I'm gwine back to Dix
ie.' This piece wvas encored so much
that they reappeared and sang, "All
on a Suniday morning.''
President Harms then introduced
Dr. W. H. Greever, the distinguished
editor of the Lutheran Church Visit
or, who made a scholarly address on
the value of an educational institution
and more 'especially on *a Christian
educational insti,tution, a church and
denominational institution. He paid
a glowing tribute to Dr. Bachman and
his work, also to what the Lutherans
had done in the State, and what New
berry college had been able to rise
to thrugh these past fifty years. He
said that the college was founded first

said: "He stands before us as the
representation of the best of those
who were associated with him, and
of .those who have followed him with
honor.'' He further said that New
berry college had; been founded "Pri
marily to prepare men for the gospel
ministry and later, under the Provi
dence of God to do the larger work
of preparing young men for 'the most
intelligent and effective Christian
srvic'e of which they are capable, in
whatever sphere of life -they may

orchestra, after which Prof. Derrick
awarded the banner which President
Harms had offered to -the class in
physical culture iuig the highest
score. This banner was given to the
Senior class, their score being 33
points. At the suggestion of Presi
dent Harms the college yells were~
given, and harmonious, sweetly, and
patriotic&lly the boys sang to thie
honor of the "Scarlet and the silver
gray.'' *This was joined in by many
of 'the men of the audience whose
har is now gray bmi whose hearts
are ever young when the college yell
is proposed, and their gray hairs did
not keep them from enjoying a yl
of by-gone days of the "scarlet and
the silver gray.''
The benediction was pronounced by
Rev. Mr. Kinard.
