COUNTY TAX AND INDEBTEDNESS.
The tax levy for the present fiscal
year beginning Nov. 1, 1890, will be
ten mills for all purposes. Of this
4 3-4 mills is for State tax; 2 mills
for school tax; and 3 1-4 for ordinary
county purposes. The county tax
will aggregate about $7,500. The es
timate for the present year is $2,000
less than that for last year, as follows:
$1,500 for raising Black river cause
-way; $125 attorney's fees; $200 re
pairs on public buildings; and $175
contingent expenses. The above
items will not be needed the present
year. This levy of 3 1-4 mills will
leave a surplus of $400, if the expend
itures are confined to the appropria
tions, and it is very desirable that the
county commissioners confine their
expenditures to the appropriation,
and not run the county in debt.
About $4,000 less in taxes will be col
lected this year than last.
The books closed Jan. 31st for the
collection of taxes except with penal
ty attached, and the treasurer tells us
there are fewer delinquents this year
than ever before, showing the wisdom
of extending the collectiqn of taxes to
February. The whole amount of de
linquent taxes including delinquent
polls is less than $400. The amount
collected this year for State purposes
is $12,214A6; for school purposes
fom two mill tax $4,653.13; and for
county purposes $10,469.54. The ap
propriation for county purposes for
the pat year was 9,145, leaving a
surplus to be applied to past indebt
edness of $1,324.54. It is certainly
desirable that the county commission
erswipe out all old indebtedness, and
if anything has to be left unpaid let
it be the deficiencies for the year just
-losed. Let the bonded indebtedness
and the indebtedness of from 1883 to
1889 be paid in full, and if anything
has to be carried over, let it be the
-deficiencies of the fiscal year begin
ning Nov. 1, 1889.
COTIO1 SEED MEAL AT HOME.
Cotton seed meal is a recent inven
tion, and ever since its introduction
our-farmers have been buying and
using it extensively, but instead of
manufacturing the meal at home, they
sell their seed and buy the article
If cotton seed meal is a good fer
tilizer, would it not be economy to
-manufacture it at home? A cotton
seed oil mill could be established in
SManning at a comparatively small
ost. All that is needed is for the
consumers to interest themselves in
the project, form a joint stock com
pany, and with what assistance they
may get from parties that are willing
to invest their money in enterprises
thtwould benefit the town and com
'lmuiy, they would soon have an es
tablishment right at home where they
ZYliave their seed converted into
zieal, and save the expense of rail
uxoads and the handling by parties
As soon as our people learn that
-tey 'can manufacture at home and
''save money then they should set
h'aout trying to accomplish the de
result. It needs no figures or
~4.uuent to prove that by having a

onycan be saved to the con
samers, and by having such an in

jOnce we succeed in getting this
aid of an institution in operation
and pushing it on to success, then
sother mills and factories will follow,
-and they too will succeed.
_Our object in making these sug

Manning has a bright future if her
~itizens will make it so. Of course
no town was ever built by people
sjwiting for str'angers to come along
and do the building. They first had
to push for themselves, and after they
had commenced to flourish, strangers
s oon found out that the town was
Sriving, and they sought out the
place, and joined in the progressive
Manning has but few enterprises,
but what few she has pay. The Bank,
the Young Men's Building and Loan
Association, and the Dime Saving In
stitution are but recent bnsiness
ventures, and all of them have shown
satisfactory results. If the word suc
cess can be written of them, we see
no reason why a cotton seed oil mill
with hundreds of consumers right at
hand should not be put in operation
and also worked successfully.
T he Sumter Trade Journal is a new
business venture. It is exclusively
for advancing the interests of Sumter.
I the managers of the paper will pay
more attention to the general "get up"
of the paper, they will meet with
greater success. Such a sheet to at
tract the attention of capitalists and
others who would probably invest in
Sumter property, should be neatly
printed on book paper. The scheme
is a good .one, but the execution can
be greatly improved on.
Two prominent men of Greenville
were gambling in that city last Friday
night, when, after a few hot words,
one shot the other through the heart.
The man killed was a lawyer, an ex
member of the legislature, and a son
in-law of Judge Hudson. Gone to
hell from a gambling table!

after which all delinquents will be
turned over to the sheriff.
- Why do not our young men save up
their money ? A dollar saved is worth
ten times ten dollars made and wast

is saved that makes millionaires.
Gov. Tillman, who has been quite
' ihthe grip for some timie, is
The 23rd S. C. Volunteers in Virginia
BY A SPROTT GUARD.
While we were quietly waiting here for
the next order a Federal soldier came riding
along approaching us from our rear. At
this place was a bridge over Tub or Cub
Run, and he very quietly and unconcerned
ly rode over the bridge, On reaching the
edge of the bridge next to where we were
he shouted, "Don't shoot, it is a friend,"and
quietly continued on his way. About the
time he was passing the point just where it
brought him quite close, some of the Con
federates on the left of the road discovered
he was a Federal, and 'cried out: "It's a
d-d Yankee, kill him." The Federal seeing
ho was discovered, put spurs to his horse
and dashed into the darkness like a 1lash.
About twenty or thirty shots were fired after
him, but with what effect we never knew.
The horse at least made his escape, for we
could hear him for some time af ter the firing
ceased, making the air ring with his hoofs.
TWO CAVALRY ATTACKS REtLSED.
A short time after this Yankee had passed
us we were ordered to make ready to resist
a charge of cavalry we heard coming down
the road upon us. The Federals came full
tilt for us. At this time Col. Benbow or
dered us to be ready. The Federals turned
before reaching us, making a kind of circle.
As they made this half circle Col. Benbow
ordered the 23rd to fire, and the next mo
ment a sheet of fire flashed from oar mus
kets. The Federals retreated at a rapid rate
back in the direction from whence they
came. The effect of our fire could not be
seen. Col. Benbow remarked: "I'll bet that
tire emptied some of their saddles."
Things now remained quite serene for a
while. All at once we heard them coming
again but we were prepared for them.
They came a little closer this time and be.
ing ready the Colonel gave the order again
to fire. wo poured another volley into
them. This time they made a turn across
the road to their right and some scattering
ones among them got among some of our
men and in the darkness and confusion
succeeded in regaining the position where
the rest had fallen back to.
THE EVE OF BATTLE.
After this affair matters began to get
quiet. The 23rd then moved aecoss the
road left obliquely forward into a cornfield
about a hundrend yards in advance of our
position just left. Here we remained in line
of battle. Everything was as calm and
quiet as could be, except an occasional stray
Yankee or Confeder te intwiring for his
command. We . de ou eves as comfort
able as the circumstances would permit,
knowing the light of the next day would
usher in one of carnage. Gen. Lee's whole
army now had arrived, and Gen. Pope had
collected all his detached forces, and had
them on hand and ready to lock horns with
the Confederates on the blood stained
plains of Manassas. About daybreak the
23rd was ordered to fall back. We quietly
marched down the road to the point where
we had the evening before left the road.
This time it was to file left again and march
down a string of fence again. On our right
was a dense piece of woods. We marched
about a half or three-qnarters of a mile and
halted. This was about sunrise or a little
after. We here formed our line of battle,
and were ordered to lay down behind this
fence, for the ball had opened, and Yankee
shot and shell had begun to search for us.
The lines of battle, it was said, extended six
miles, and by eight o'clock in the morning
the battle was raging with terriffic splendor
along the whole line. Evans's Brigade was
now together, and was held in reserve for
the final onset when the right time came.
While the brigade was in reserve we suffer
ed considerable from the fire of the Feder
als in our front. We had several men
wounded, some severely, by shells falling
about and bursting above us. About two
o'clock we received our scant rations, con
sisting of cord bread and beef, eating it
with a relish that did not need any coaxing,
for it was the first we had to eat for over two
days. We remained in line of battle and
reserve till about five o'clock in the evening.
About this time we saw Gen. Evans riding
down in front of the brigade delivering his
order to each officer commanding a regi
ment. When he reached our front he said
to Col. Benbow: "Forward with your regi
ment !" The order came, "Forward, 23rd!"
and we rose from behind the fence, leaped
over, and began to advance. The shells were
now bursting all around us. The whole
brigade was in line of battle and began to
move at he same time. The line of battle was
beautiful the battle flags of the brigade proud
ly fluttering in the gentle evening breeze.
COn. BmBow woUNDED.
We moved forward with rhe quick step, and
a short distance from the fence a shrapnel
shell from the Federal battecies burst a short
distance in our front and a few feet above
us. CoL. Benbow and several others were
wounded. Col. Benbow leaned forward,
sticking the point of his sword in the
ground to support himself from falling, and
said to Lieut.-Col. Roberts, "Colonel, you
must lead the regiment; I am wounded."
Col. Roberts said: "Forward, boys, I will
lead you !" We continued at a double quick.
In our front about three hundred yards was
a piece of woods about seventy-five or a
hundred yards wide. This woods we were
not long in reaching, but having reached
it our movements were a little inter
rupted by limbs and brush lying quite
thick through them. We kept in very good
order though, and reached the opposite side
very well embodied. By the time we had
got about halfway from where Col. Benbow
was wounded and this woods in our front,
the fire from the Federal batteries became
very rapid, and shell and shot were coming
from every direction in our front and burst
ing on every side of us, and more especially
in the body of woods we were about to enter.
GOING IToT BATrLE...
After passing through the woods we came to
a very extensive opening, in some places as
far as the eye could see. On reaching this
edge of the woods we camne to where the
ground was rolling or hilly, reaching a
point where we had to make a descent grad
ually of about eighty or a hundred yards.
At this distance began an ascent about sev
enty-five or a hundred yards. At the bottom
of these two hills as they may be called was
Tub or Cub Run flowing in all its majesty,
and its waters as cold as ever. Aboat sixty
yards from the brow of this hill in our front
was a heavy battery of artillery, consisting,
as well as I remember, of seven pieces, all
bright and glittering brass guns. Along in
supporting distance of this battery was a
line of Federal infantry, stretching like a
blue cloud across our front. Scattered on
and all over the ground and hill in front of
the woods we had just got through were the
Federal dead and wounded. The - regi
ment N. Y. Zouaves was terribly cut to
pieces at this place, and from their number
of dead and wounded the gallant Americans
must have stood their ground nobly. As
soon as we cleared the woods, at a double
qick we descended the hill, jumping over
the dead and wounded. Federals to keel) from
treading on them. On reaching the run at
the bottom or base of this hill we leaped into
it and out on the other side in a few mo
ments, and began to ascend the hill on the
opposite side of the run. Just as we clear
ed the run Lieut.-Col. Rloberts was wounded
and the command of the reginant devolved
upon Maj. Whilden. As soon as we
emerged fiom the woods the Federals open
ed fire on us from a battery stationed about
four hundred yards from us, jnist a short
distance back of being on a line with the
battery in our front, throwing their missiles
a little left obliquely from them and oblique
ly across our line. On clearing the run we
went up the hill at a double quick. Just as
we reached the brew of the hill Maj. Whil
den ordered us to fall down, and in a mo
ment we all drcpped down, and in lcss than
THE BATTLE B3EGI~s.
a moment's time the Federals opened fire
upon us. I think this fire did little dam
age, their grape and canister passing over
us. As soon as this fire .was over Major
Whilden crdered the 23rd to rise and for
ward. We rose as quick as we could and
moved forward towards the battery, for we
were not over fifty yards from it. By the
time we arose the Federals had their guns re
charged and opened fire again upon us, the
infantry supporting the battery opening at
the same time. Now it was terrible ! Grape
and canister raking and tearing up the
as and plowing up the ground at every
point, causing a perfect cloud of dust to rise,
and the dust and smoke mingling together
with the yells of the contending forcest made

the afleir terrible indeed. About this time,
if I remenmber correctly, D. J. Biadham', 3rd
Lieutenant coanading Co. I, lost his arm.
The fire was so terrible that the 23rd had to
fall back bAlind the lill. The 23rd was
again orderc-0 to move forward. This time
We moved a little light obliquely forward,
which threw ns a little right of the front of
the battery. The space left open was inme
diately filied with the right of Anderson's
Brigade, which was advancing some short
distance in rear of Evans's Brigade to sup
port it. The two brigades now getting to
gether, or being now where they could act
together, moved forward, and, under the
heavy tire of the enemy, captured the bat
terv. As soon as this battery was captured
the guns were turned upon the Federals
twho were flveing across the open fieid),
pouring a demorahzing and destructive tire
into the backs of the flying fugitives. The
battle was fast going against the Federals, it
being late in the evening and the Federal
whole line, right, centre, and left was broken
and defeated, and they exercising all the
faith they had in their own heels for their
safety, were flying in confusion. When the
darkness of that evening spread itself over
the face of nature there was one more bril
liant and decisive victory to be scored to the
arms of the Confederate States of America,
and one humiliating defeat to be recorded
in the pages of history against the North.
In the charge at the top of the hill the
gallant Maj. Whilden fell pierced by sev
eral balls while gallantly bearing aloft the
flag of the 2'rd, three others having been
shot down before the gallant Whilden
grasped it up. The battle over and the
Federals were now flying with all speed to
reach the northern bank of the Potomac
River, with a heavy body of the victorious
Confederates in their rear. We collected our
wounded in a camp established in a woods
about three-quarters of a mile from the
battle field, and administered to their needs
the best we could till they could be trans
ferred to hospitals where they could be bet
ter attended to. The next day was Sunday,
and Sunday it was to all appearances, for
it was as calm and as peaceful as any 'ab
bath could be. Had it not been for the
shoc--ing evidences of war all around us,
one would have supposed there was no
blighting curse of war in our land. Several
of us repaired to the battle field, and I will
say here that one who has never been on a
batle field, or has never visited one, need
never want to do so, for they will be-hold a
THE FLELD STREWN wITH DEAD soLDiErs.
sight that is simply awful. On reaching the
battle field we went over it, and witnessed
the terrible consequences of war t:li the
heart became sick. On that field of e:arnage
wve beheld men shot in every cuncvei ble
manner, men mangled and torn to bleed
ing threads, men of all ages, the middle
wged and to all appearances in the full vig
>r of their manhood, and the beardless boy,
ill mangled and stiff in death. We saw the
battle in its effects had been more terrible
with the Federals than with the Confeder
ites, they having a greater number of mnen
han the Confederates their loss could not
but be greater. In this particular part of
:he battie field I visited 1 am satsited the
Federals' loss was at. least five to three of the
Confederates. The loss on the part of the
Federals as admitted on the part of tie au
horities of the United States was never
orrect, for they have always trzed to convey
the impression that the loss of the Confed
erates in this battle was as heavy or heavier
than theirs, which was not the case, for they
were soundly whipped and got many men
killed and wounded besides prisoners. It
was reported at the time that the Confeder
ates captured nine thousand prisoners or
more. The loss on the part of the Confed
erates I do not remember as officially re
ported. The official report of the 23rd I
very well remember: Four hundred and
fortv-one men engaged, and one hundred
and fifty-seven killed and wounded. A great
many of course were but slightly wounded.
I remember well that Co. I carried twenty
four men rank and file into the fight, and
QNLY T~i:EE or' co. I EscAPE UNBnT.
ot of that number only three escaped un
scathed. With this company many weere
only slightly weounded. The readers can
very well imagine how thick shot and shell
flew around the 23rd on that occasion.
This I think is sufficient to relate about
this memorable battle, so I will turn from
the battle field and relate a little incident
connected with this afluir that was very
amusing at the time. It appears that Gen.
Pope imagined during some part of the day's
battle that he was gaining the day and the
Confederates would soon be in fill flight
before his victorious army, and while enjoy
ing this delusive expectation he telegraphed
to Washington that Lee was retreating to
the mountains and that a-great union victo
ry was being achieved by the grand union
army; also saying any one wishing to visit
the battle field and view the rebel dead
could do so with safety. On reception of
this telegram about sixty citizens of Wash
ington set out to visit the battle field and
see all these gratifying sights. But disap
pointed they were when before they were
aware of it they were safe within the lines
of Confederates; and Pope was, wvith his de
feated and flying troops, making for the
north bank of the Potomac Rtiver by way of
Centreville. The mortification and chagrin
of these nicely dressed citizens was as great
to themselves as it weas amusing to the Con
federates. They abused Pope at a high rate
and called him everything but a man of un
questioned veracity and a good general.
The Confederates teased them: a great deal,
many of them telling them they wanted to
swap shirts with them. After teasing them
a good deal in different ways they were
marched to the rear, and after a day or two
released and sent through the lines under a
flag of truce back to Washington, a wiser
set at least than when they left.- They had
the pleasure of seeing, if there was any
pleasure in it, their dead scattered over the
field and on the road they came, for this
was the morning alter the battle, and I
don't think any of the Federals were buried
up to that time.

After the battle of Manassas Lee's army
crossed the Potomac River into Maryland
early in September, and in the batt!,:s of

to dislodge and defeat the Federals at the
