A COINCIDENCE. thi:
A rather strange coincidence hap- a 1
pened in connection with the article wil
by Colonel Dickert, which was printed use
in The Herald and News a few issues sisi
back "On the attempt on the life of
Jefferson Davis." For more than 40 I
years the name of Colonel Dahlgreen "M
has not been mentioned in the South- thi
ern press and perhaps it has been uni
that long since it was mentioned in pre
the Northern press, for the Northern
ers were not at all proud of his cow- p
ardly act. the
After the manuscript of Colonel evi
Dickert's article was handed in we mal
saw a copy of a letter in the Bingham, wai
ton (N; Y.) Republican of June 4,
from a Northern man, in connecticm
With the firkt ian Who 16k his life in rus
th _t6Mt War Between the States. eve
This letter speaks of him as a martyr mo
and in enumerating the many other
martyrs who gave their life for the a
union, he mentions "Colonel Dahl- pos
green, the dashing, who courted an
death between the picket lines," "the sig]
patriotic General Wadsworth chang- in
ing the silver for the golden crown." wr
Colonel Dickert calls Dahlgreen an 15i
"assassin" while the Northerner ricl
styles 'him a "martyr." we
Another singular coincidence is the bin
mention of General Wadsworth, the wh
millionaire general who fell at the mo:
Wilderness. Colonel Dickert was with we
him at his death, and perhaps heard not
his last spoken words on this earth,
and in Colonel Dickert's History of
Kershaw's Brigade, he spoke as fol- It
lows of the dead Union general: gre
"In a large fly tent, near the road -wol
* side, lay the dying Northern million-- I r<
aire, General Wadsworth. The Con- got
*federates had been as careful of his
* wants, and respected his station, as if E
he had been one of our own soldiers. caui
I went in to look at the general, who .ieal
could command"more ready gold than bus
the Confederate States had in its mo:
treasury. His hat had been placed to
over his face, and as I raised it his sonl
heavy breathing, his closed eyes, his the
cold clamy face, showed that the rici
* end was near. There lay dying, -the try
* multi-millionarle, in an enemy's the
country, not -a friend near, to hear his yot
last farewell or soothe his last mo- Th<
ment, by a friendly touch on his pal
lid brow. Still he, like all soldiers on I
either side, died for what he thought abt
was right, old
"He fails not, who stakes his all, ert
Upon the right, and dares to fall, we
What though the living bless or da:
For him, the long success of fame." cor
We do not know, but we believe it to
would be safe to say that Col. Dick- dr
ert did not replace the hat on the face wa
of the dying millionaire general, but ing
that a Southern soldier wore that hat. aic

The executive committee did thedi
right thing on Satur'day in arranging so
a short campaign. There Ie little need the
of a meeting in each township or hav- WC
ing three meetings in Newberry. Ik
Nobody in Newberry is talking pol- ,
tics and very few seem to have any
desire for office. st
It is a good omen. We hope the on
people will demand that some good ing
and efficient men run for the legisla- of
ture. It is the most important office plE
in the county, and should be filled byca
men of ability. cie
It is not yet too late to plant corn ful
or to sow peas. We can scarcely n
make too much food stuff in this State.
The crops are looking fairly well in coi
this section of the State. There is i
some grass, of course, but if there bu:
were not you could scarce expect any- da:
thing else. The corn is looking par- cai
ticularly well. tin

The Georgia legislature is about to
convene and Frank Stanton prints in
his column in the Atlanta Constitu
tion the following composition by a;
Georgia youngster on the legislature:
"Legislatures are necessary; we've;

they are for our own good, and sent
.pon us for some wise purpose. We
may not see it that way at the time,
but it is so. For fear that you may
