The Old "Vets" (;o to Charleston.
Clarendon surely did herself proud yes
terday. It was a day long to be remember
ed, and one that sent joy to many a heart,
and a loving sadness about the scene which
reflection was bound to bring. Harry Ben
bow Camo, No. 471 U. C. V.'s looked for
ward to this day and it turned one far in
excess of all expectation. From all direc
tions came the hoary-headed heroes of the
long ago to once more and probably for the
last time to meet each other and recount
the past. Abont midday these men once
the vouth and flower of Carolina assembled
in tLe court house to receive their badges
their insignia of duty, well and nobly done,
when their mother State appealed to them
to protect her from the wrong imposed
upon her. Did these men respond? Look
at the bent forms, the wrinkled faces, the
armless sleeves, the limping walk; some
with bodies that have been pierced with
the bayonet or bullet from the enemy.
These men a:e today living witnesses of
the past, and spared to tell their sons and
grandsons the horrors of war. They, never
forgetful of any attentions shown to them,
adopted resolutions of thanks to the editor
of Taz Tnms for his cheerful aid to make
their journey to Charleston a joyous one.
Each veteran-about 95 in number--was
given a red silken badge, upon which was
printed "Harry Benbow Camp, No. 471,"
and this they pinned upon their coats. In a
short while a beautiful redsilk flag was sent
and in letters of white handiwork of fair
ladies was the name of the camp. When
this flag made its appearance the band
on the square struck up "Dixie," and cheer
after cheer was the reception it received.
The "rebel yell" was given time and again,
and some of the "old boy s" that usually
walk with stiffened joints fairly jigged like
Capt. Bradham and Col. Brailsford were
unceasing in their efforts to make the oc
casion a grand success. When dinner was
announced the "Vets" were formed and by
squads marched to tLe Benbow house,
where a bountiful dinner was served them.
While preparations were going on at the
court house for the trip, ladies were h ird
at work decorating a special car left by the
railroad authorities. During the wait the
Black River Picaninny Brass Band played
patriotic music on the square which the
veterans and spectators enjoyed.
When the "fall in" was given the band
went to the armory, and in a few minutes
here came the Manning Guards, about 30
strong, commanded by Capt. Davis, and as
they approached, marching to the "Bonnie
Blue Flag," a cheer arose from the veterans
which was taken up bythecrowd in appreci
ation of the high compliment the sons paid
their sires. The Guards never looked bet
ter; they halted and came to a company
front; the line was perfect and the eyes of
the followers of Lee and Jackson glistened
with pleasure as they beheld the gray uni
forms, and when the company came to a
"Present Arms" the old soldiers appreci
ated the salute and acknowledged it with
uncovering their heads.
rhe march was then taken up in the fol
Picaninny brass band.
On reaching the Central hotel a halt was
made and Colonel Brailsford, one of the
most gallant men on the continent, escort
ed Miss Richardson, the sponsor, and
Misses Mellie Nelson,and Margaret Tindal,
two of the maids of honor, and as he
reached the Camp he introduced the ladies.
The sponsor in a neat little speech ac
knowledged for herself and her associates
the high honor conferred upon them and
then presented the officers and ex-officers
with ibeautiful boutonnieres.
The ladies were then placed in carriages
and the march was continued to the depot
amid 'the waving of handkerchiefs along
the route. The carriages containing the
sponsor and the maids were placed be
tween the Guards and the Veterans and in
that way they proceeded to the depot where
a tremendous crowd received them.
On arriving at the depot, Colonel Brails
ford took occasion to very feelingly thank
Captain Davis and the Guards for the
high honor conferred by their escort, and
reminded him that this was not the first
time he had seen the Manning Guards. He
saw them in 1860, in the battle of Manassas
and they placed on that occassion a page
in history which time can never efface, and
which will ever be a proud reference to
every Carolinian. He then proposed cheers
for the Guards which were given with a
will. Captain Davis responded in a beau
tiful speech, in which he assured the Vet
erans that it was him and his company
which was honored by having the privilege
of escorting them, and he wished them a
happy reunion and a safe journey. He
also promised them that if called to duty,
which was momentarily expected, that the
response to the country's call would be
made just as it was by their fathers in the
When the train came along there was a
rush for seats, but with very little confu
sion, so well was the management. The
special car was some distance down the
track and it was about filled up before the
the train came along, nevertheless, seats
were found all right enough on the train
which rolled in with several camps from
Columbia, Sumter and elsewhere.
The special car was a bower of loveliness
on wheels; the decorations could not have
been more beautiful had a professional dec
orator done the work. Flowers and bunt
ing were wrapt and arranged as only can
be done in a work of love, for it wa~s love
alone which prompted the ladies to do this
magnificent piece of work.
All along the route to Charleston visitors
came into Clarendon's car to admire the
beauty presented and we all felt proud of
our rolling house so elegantly built by the
Space will not permit us to tell of many
incidents of this trip, but there is one inci
dent which should not be overlooked; five
brothers-the Bradham brothers-were all
gallant Confederate soldiers and they were
of the party; another is Mvr. Judson Hol
laday, who was so fearfully wounded that
a silk handkerchief was pulled through
him, and he was given up to die by the
surgeons, was here to meet the boys once
more. We could go on and tell of hun
dreds of incidents, but as before said~space
will not permit.
The train arrived in Charleston about
630 and the Veterans were taken to the
Roper Hospital to be quartered. The trip
was pleasantly made; all hands are enjoy
ing themselves at this midnight hour.
We were about to forget that Captain
Hudgins, of Foreston, was presented on
the train with a beautiful bouquet of flow
er for being the oldest and handsomesat

Editor THE Tnxzs:
I was on hand the 21st to attend the en
tertainment at Mr. C. A. Harvin's for the
benefit of the Thornwell Orphanage, and it
was an occasion long to be remembered.
A, I was placed, as I had supposed, at great
disadvantage, as I had not a ingle lady
acquaintance and had no knowledge as to
how I should obtain one, it being, as you
know, my first advent into society; but
fortune favored me. When I appeared at:
the door, there stood a beautifully aressed
lady; her beauty dazed me. A gentleman
being present who knew me, gave me an
introduction. I handed her a quarter, as
we had to pay according to age. She
asked me how much change I wanted. I
told her to keep it all, as I felt for orphans.
being one myself. She bowedt her thanks. I
I told her it was my first onting and I
didn't know a single lady, that if I had I
would have brought one with me for corm
pany. She says, "Come this way," and l.I
me down the hall and introduced me to
one of the most beautiful and accomplished
ladies in the audience, and she introduced
me to a number of others. You know it
does not make any difference about the
beauty of objects; you are sure to select
one that you think excels; that was my
case. Being introduced to a lady I told
her that I had been noticing her during
the evening; her reply was that probably
for the reason that she had been moving
round more than others. I replied there
were other reasons. She did not ask what
they were; if she had I would have told her
it was her beauty and easy and graceful

one battalion of infantry and'ono heavy
battery of artillery. It is the wish of the
President that the regiment of the Na

as far as their number will permit, for the
reason that they are armed, equipped and
drilled. Please wire as early as possible
what equipments, ammunition, arms,
blankets, tents, etc., you have, and what
additional you will require. Please, also,
state when troops will be ready for mnns

Mv Dear Sir: I write again in re

war is an assured fact. There is evi
dently a purpose on the part of the
officers of the regular army to mo
nopolize, as far as possible, all power
and all glory in this war, and, as the
struggle will be mainly on the ocean,
there will be lit tle for the army to do.
Cuba will be subdued by starvation,

will, by this means, be forced to asur
I would advise you, and through
you the military of our State, to
simply assume an attitude of willing
ness and not be outdone by other
States. Any rushing or pressing to
the front will do no good. Co-op era
tion with the officers of the regular
army who are detailed to look after
our coast defences will, of course, be
desirable, and, in my opinion, this is
all you will be called on to do. It
wold be sucidial to go to Cuba at
this season of the yea'r.

Governor W. H. Ellerbe, Columbia,
The News and Courier and State of
yesterday are trying to distort my
letter to General Anderson into a
discouragement to our people to
volunteer. I have pledged the
State to do its share and be
second to none in supporting the
United States in the war with Spain,
though it would be dangerous to go
to Cuba at this season. South Caro
linians should not lag behind, but
take their chances, and not be out
done by men from any other State.
There is no doubt that every other
State will furnis!2 a full quota, and I
am sure South Carolina will do like
wise. Any pretense that I believe
or advise to the contrary is false, as
my telegram to Gen. Anderson shows.
