Is Marriage a Failure ?
A white woman from Alcoln came to Man
ning Monday to complain of her husband
to Trrial Justice Timmons. She charged
her husband with having cursed her for
everything but a lady, also threatening her
hfe and striking her with a piece of board
four feet long. She wanted the trial justice
to issue a wvarrant for her husband im
mediatelv as she could not live with him
any longer, because -'I is a member of the
church and his devilment makes me say
things that are not right."
Trial .Justice Timmons tried to persuade
her out of' the notion of having a warrant
issued, but to no purpose. Nothing but a
warrant would satisfy her, so at warrant wvas
issued to forthwith bring to justie the man
whose devilment makes his wife, who is a
member of the church, say things that are
not rig!.t, and he was arrested by Deputy
Poncey yesterday, but before the deputy
arrived with his prisoner the trial justice
received a telegram to stop the proceedings,
and in a short while after the receipt of the
telegram the mistreated wife arrived tc
plead in behalf of her husband. When the
prisoner wes brought in the affidavit was
withdrawii, the expenses of the arrest paid,
and the turtle-dove couple went home tc
make another trial of their future happiness.
This couple furnishes a good argument
for those that contend that "marriage is

Editor Manniug Times:---in a fe

While these goods are coming in w
wish our friends to know that we sti:
have a great many inducements to ol
fer them in the way of heavy or wool
en goods, and these must be sold re
gardless of price, because we hav
adopted a rule to clear our shelves c
all goods that are about going out c
season. This rule we will stick to, fo
it pays better to sell off than to carr;
over old stock. As the winter seaso

Every reader of the Times is awar,

the congressional proceedings, and a
soon as we saw that Mr. McKinle
was about to be successful, we a
once began making contracts for fu
ture delivery with the largest dr;
goods, clothing, carpet, and hat fac
tories, and some of our future deliv
ery contracts were not completed un
til last month.
By doing this we had the advantag
of every other merchant, and avoide<
the sudden advance in price. We dit
the same'with our shoe contracts, an(
we can now sell shoes iight from ou:

The 23rd S. U.AVolunteers in Virginia
BY A sPr0TT GUAnD.
On -July 16, 1SC2, one month to the day
after the battle of Secessionville (my first
batth), I received a Iransrer froi -Co. G,
2th Regt. Gist's Brigade, S. C. Vols., then
!.at Seces-ionville, to Co. I, 23rd Regt., Ev
ans's liigadt, S. C. Vols., then at Wappoo
Cut- all on James Island. Evans's Brigade
consisted of the 17th, 18th, 22nd, and 23rd
a Regts., and the Holeombie Legion, all S. C.
a On the 18th of July the, brigade received
- marching orders for Virginia, and after
- some little preparation the 23rd struck tents
a and were soon in line for Charleston. We
V reached Charleston about the middle of the
afternoon, and marched to !-the Citadel
0 Green, where we remained until the next
On the evening of the 19th we marched to
- the 2epot, reaching there about sunset.
About dark we boarded the train, and after
an all night's travel in box cars reached Co
lumbia about 2 o'clock on the 20th. We re
f mained in Columbia until the next evening:
then at about . o'clock we left Columbia,
and our next stop was at Charlotte, N.-C.,
and after drav.ing and cooking rations we
left for Raleigh. From Raleigh to Weldon,
thence to Petersburg, and lastly to Rich
mond. We reached Richmond Sunday ev
ening the 27th. On reaching Richmond we
marched to the fair grounds, where we re
mained a few days, and then took up the
line of march to a place known as "Taylor's
- Farm," about nine nixles from Richmond
near the James River. We remained-at this
point about two or three weeks.
While at this place the Federals from Har
f rison's Landing made a sally and captured
- Malvern Hill, about nine miles southeast
- from where we were camped. As soon as
the capture of this place was known Evans's
Brigade was ordered to recapture Malvern
Hill. The 23rd was promptly in line, with
I Col. H. L. Benbow commanding the regi
ment. We left for Malvern Hill immedi
ately after receiving orders to move, taking
the turn pike leading from the vicinity of
t our camp to the point needed. arriving near
Malvern quite late in the day. It was late
when we received orders to move, and im
mediately after reaching the desired locality
the 23rd was ordt-red to deploy as skirmish
- ers and move forward. Leaving the turn
- pike in our rear we marched across an open
field to a piece of woods that was not more
than two hundred yards from where the
regiment was formed as skirmishers.
A FIGHT IN PROSPEcT.
About the time or just before we reached
the woods Gen. Evans rode down the lire in
our front and said to us: "Boys, you will
find the enemy just before you in the woods
there," pointing to tne woods. As we were
about to enter it began to bc amusing. The
t men were cautioned to be quiet and advance
% cautiously, so that when we found the ene.
my we would be prepared against being
th'rown in confusion by his fire, but it was
no use. The boys would have their sport
out of each other, laughing and making fun
at each other's awkwardness. This was the
first battle for the 23rd. The Federals no
doubt thought from the fuss that Lee's whole
arily was coiming. We moved as fast as we
could under the circumstances, the woods
being very rough, and reached the opposite
t side of the woods at the foot of Malvern
Hill just about dark. While waiting for
Sfirther orders we discovered that the Fed
3 er's had evacuated the hill, and had retired
5 with all speed to their gun-boats then on the
I James River at Uarrison's Landing. The
commotion among them could be easily
guessed by the noise they were making get
ting their artillery and wagons away. The
3 nearest we came to sebing a Yankee was a
. nrtridge box and a cap, and that was about
midway between where we entered the
woods and the base of the hill on the other
. side of the woods. The Federals must cer
-tainly have had advanced po.-ts of pickets in
- these wods. After reaching the hill and
.while while waiting for something else to
aturn up dark came upon us, and dark it was.
AN ALL NIGHT MAnIcH.
'While at this point and moving about in
-the dark 'we stumbled occasionally on the
body of a dead man, and the stench was
.great and sickening. The weather was very
Swarm, and it did not take decomposition
long to set in. The bodies whether Confed
erates or Federals we could not tell, owing
to the darkness of the night. In all prob
a ability it was the bodies of both.
1 After being satistied that it was not nec
es.sary to remain whlere we were Col. Benbow
gave the order to about face and try and
- reach the place where we entered the wvoods.
s In trying to make our way out of the woods
we became bewildered, owing to the dark
ness. T1he regiment became sep~arated or
divided into two parts, one part under Col.
Benbow and the other under Lient.-Col.
Roberts. We rambled about for some time,
trying to find our wvay out of the woods
Timh part the Lieut.-Col. was with I believe
in the course of the night reached the main
road leading to cr in the direction of Har
-rison's Landing. Col. Benbow's partof the
r regiment, the part the writer was with, did
not get out of the woods till daylight, and
the regiment did not get together until after
sunrise. After Col. .Benbow's detachment
reached the other detachment at the road
already mentioned we remained there until
about sunset, when we formed and made
our way back to our camp. We remained ~a
f ew days at this camip, when we again re
t ceived marching orders. The order came to
Smarch to Richmond.
n On reaching Richmond wve found we were
to joun Longstreet's Division, then up at
Gordoinsville. We reached Richmond some
time in the night as well as I remember,
jand the next day wve took the cars for Gor
t donsville, said to be ninety miles from Rich
m~nond. After reaching Gordonsviile we re
d mained there about a (lay, when we set out
to join Longstreet's Division. At this place
t Evans' Brigade got together again for the
o first time since our little fun at Malvern
e Hill, and attewvards continued together as a
.brigade. Having joined Longstreet's Di
t vision at this place it was but a short time
before the whole division was in motion to
e reinforce "Stonewall" Jackson who was then
trying to catch Pope, the great gaseonade of
d ankeedom. Having given him a drubbing
~at Cedar Run a few days before he was itch
ing to get a chance at him again. Pope was
falling back to Manassas, and Jackson was
~keeping as close him as he could, trying to
sforce him- to make a stand, but the Federals
t made no stand of much importance till they
r reached Manassas. Leaving Gordonsville
the 23rd with the rest of the division was
making good time, and it wias thought that
t Pope would be forced to give battle, but
.thatt hope of all the Yankee land was not
sready to measture arms with the Confederates
ye. THE AnmTILL.ERY FIGHT.
On reaching the Rappahannock river the
23rd Regiment was ordered for ward to sup
n port the Washington Artillery of New Or
e leans. T'he Federals had succeeded in cross
s ing this river, and had planted several of
their batteries to cover their retreat. The
Washington Artillery had a good position,
a high and long hill, and were pouring their
sh'ot and shell after the retreating Federals.
We moved forward across an extensive open
e ig o ed, ndhad a good view of the ar
ytillery fight. TeFederals were returning
thentre rapidly. It was grand. The fire was
' eyrp romi both sides and shot and shell
1 tiying and hursting on every side. The white
it siioke froii cur baitteries1:egan to rise, roll,
h andl gently Lat back before us.. We ad
vadas rapidly 'as possible to reach the
ba~se of the hil that the aitillery was occu
p 'yig in moin" forward we sustaiined
some sl iht casuai lties before reaching the
hill. Oni reaching the lull we were ordered
to lie down , for being in this position we
wouild be. less expiosed to the lire of the ene
al my. It no w seee as if the- devil must
shave gottent into the Yankees in his biggest
ii om, for they returned our fire with a ra
pidt tha l't deserved credit. Our position
v..as at the base ef the hill, lying down in
line, ind we lay in line of battle di ring the
whole artilry fight, which lasted four hours
and~ a half. Our casuiedties were slight: one
kiled and several slightly uwounded. This
alitir happened on Aug. 23rd. Company I
(the company I was a member of)' had two
or three wounded. It will not be amiss to
st"t. here that this day and in this afihir the
firs"t blood was shcd in Company I, better
known in Clarendon as the Sprott Guards.
F"or this reason the survivors of the Sprott
Guards iave their annual reunions on the
2'&ra of August.
sTILL HUtNTING A FIoHT.
id The artillerists sustained casualties also,
ed. What contributed to their. casualties
was the bursting of one of their guns, and
by this accident their loss was made great
er. After the difficulty at this place was
over we were soon on the march'again. The
Federals in their retreat, and to furth-r im
pede our advance, burned the bridge behind
them. The burning of the bridge compell
ed us to march several miles to a place we
could ford the river. We forded the Rap
pahannock and Rapidan rivers, and were
soon in the wake of the retreating Feder
als. In a few days after the affair on the
Rappabannock we began to near the plains
of Manassas. On Thursday evening about
4 o'clock we were in hearing of the guns.
Gen. Jackson was then unpleasantly enter
taining the Yankees at Thoroughfare Gap.
Gen. Pope it seems attempted to check the
advance of the jubilant Confederates at this
place, and failing to do so continued to fall
back to Manassas. On the morning of Aug.
29th about sunrise we reached Thoronghfare
Gap, and the first or about the first things
we began to see was dead Federal soldiers.
We continued our march, and all through
the gap saw dead Federal soldiers. After
getting through the gap we continued our
march, and for some distance saw dead Fed
eral soldiers. Along their line of retreat
guns and cartridge boxes were thrown aside
to lighten their load as. much as possible,
for the Rebel devils were close on their
heels. The 23rd was now making good time,
and about the middle of the day reached a
point in hearing of the guns at Manassas.
Gen. Pope now concluded to stop retreating
and give battle. We pushed forward, and
just as we were in a short distance of the
battle field we were halted and Col. Benbow
was ordered to about face with his regiment
and march with all speed to a little town in
our rear (the name I gave forgotten) and
prevent the Federals from capturing it. It
was reported that a body of Federals had
been detached and sent round to capture
this place. After marching about a mile
back we were ordered to about face again
and march back to MrFnassas. We faced
about and commenced our march back, and
again it began to be exciting, for the artil
lery on both sides was booming and the
rattle of musketry could be distinctly heard.
We pushed forward with a quick step, and
began to meet prisoners being brought in
squads to the rear under guard. Keeping
the road we soon reached a point where it
was necessary to leave the road. At a certain
point the 23rd was ordered to file left and
take through a strip of woods. After get
ting in the woods Col. Benbow gave the
order halt. The next order was fix bayo
nents, then forward. We marched about a
hundred yards in these woods alongside of
a fence which was on our right until we
reached an open field. Here Col. Benbow
gave the order: "Front! right shoulder
shift, arms! double quick, march!" We
obeyed the orders promptly and moved for
ward. We cleared the fence in front in good
3rder, and just as we cleverly cleared the
Fence we received amid our ranks a dis
,harge of grape shot from a battery station
ed on a hill a little right obliquely of our
Front. This fire raked the-- ground in our
Front and struck the fence in our rear with
terrible rattle. but, strange to say, we sus
;ained no casualties from it. We continued
it a double quick to capture this battery.
RoUTING A DATTEnY.
Our speed was, however, impeded by a
stream called Tub or Cub.Run (which was
its right name I cannot now remember.) On
reaching this run we had to ford it. it being
boo wide for us to jump it. The water was
very cold and about waist deep. We were
not long in reaching the opposite bank of
the run, and after clearing the run we mov
ed forward across the same road we had left
Dn filing left into or through the woods al
ready mentioned. By the time we reached
this road the Federals abandoned this posi
tion and taking their battery fell back. On
reaching the road we moved across it and
re-formed our line of battle, we having be
come a little disorganized in getting over
the run already spoken of. The position of
the 23rd was now on the right of the road.
On the left of the road was formed in line
of battle a Texas Brigade, which was mov
ing in our rear to support our regiment.
These dispositions of the troops to form on
the right and left of the road was made to
ptotect them from the fire of the enemy.
It was thought the enemy would bring their
batteries to bear on this road and rake it
with grape shot. After we were all so ar
ranged it began to near night. We were
quietly in position now, not knowing what
would be the next order. The fire of the
troops on both sides had about ceased, with
the exception of a random rifle or musket
shot fired in some distant part of the field.

Is There A Gambling Hell in Forestonl
EDI'on MANNXG TIMEs-In your last is
sue I see a communication in which the
writer is not very complimentary to your
town and also to a station below Manning.
Of course there is more than one place
where the the cars stop to take a passenger,
but they are mierely sidings; therefore, I
am led to the conclusion that Foreston is
the place he refers to. If such is the case,
as he alleges, I must say lhe is better posted
than those living here, except those engaged
in what he alleges; and if he knows so
much I have no doubt that he has taken a
hand with them, or probably is agent for
the house that fills the demijohns. The
government had better give him a commis
sion to hunt up all such cases. Our town
has always been noted for its morality, and
I think deservedly so. cITrzEN.
