Cold SstunlsT of 1K33.
Tbe writer of these reminiscences was bora
in South Carolina July 13, ISSi. His father
removed to llnlcrlmni county, Ga., about
the year KU, and died on tbe 35tb of March,
i-.iil iiieiaiioi tne meteors was in lSH. aud.
strange as It may soein, I never saw anything
of it, m-iiiier ili.l any one where I was at that
lime, and I will therefore not here attempt a
recitiil or riviipitulutnm, but merely say that
j.-r.-nt excitement prevailed. On the next day
everywhere the opinion was that the sun
would never rise any more. The people met
und held meetings and prayed for deliver-ain-u.
This grand phenomenon is very ably
wruten up ny several atle divine wrriters.
The memorable cold Saturday was tbe 7th
tiny of February, 1833, and was the coldest
day we have any account of. The chickens

Tbe Indians were the first settlers of Haher
liam, but in the mountains where I was
rinsed there were none, and I never saw any
of tbein. 1 have seen a great many relics, as
pieces of dirt oveus, pipes and other curious
implements. There was said to bean old wo
man that made a confession upon her death
to this effect: That there were ouce two
tnlies and they got to fighting, and one of the
trilics annihilated the other. She went on to
sny that the conquerors would bring some of
t:ie others to ber tied and blindfolded, and
she would throw them into the river, where
they would go over Toocoa Falls. She also
viid that she could get forgiveness for every-
tinng sue ever did but drowning these In
dians, but that ber doom was fixed, and that
she w as going to bell then to pay tbe penalty
of ber crime.

The great May freshet that is known as the
Harrison freshet was In 140. I went to school
that day to David HilL Considerable damage
was done, the bridges and mill swept away
by tbe raging waters. Steamboata run on

In March, 1M1, 1 and my brother. Green.
were in the Held plowing. I was plowing a
little Chickasaw pony, aud he was plowing a
steer. We were forty or fifty Tarda apart.

lieguu in good enruest. The trees commenced
tumping aud falling and a terrible crash en
suiil. 1 stopiied to see what Green was do
ing. He had cut the bamestriug and turned
the steer louse, and at tbe same time a cbext
nut tree fell on tbe Chickasaw pony and
killed it. Tbe storm was goiug toward the
east, and ?JM yards from where 1 was it lifted
off the rough and weight poles and piled the
debris about twenty ynrds from the house.
The hurricane then entered the pine ridges,
aliout a mile east of there, and blowed tbe
limtier in every direction. Considerable
damage was done in tbe vicinity. Harrison
