WAR Hlfe?ORY CORRECTED.
The Shooting of J. M. Miller in '65.
Mr. Editor-I notice iu your paper
of June 2d, a communication from a
Mr. Collum of Jesup, Ga., who like
myself wus n prisoner in the 17th
Army corps (Blairs) in March 1865,
Mr. Goburn gives some corrections
t?> ?n articlo wrilteu hy ono Mr. Ford
who was in the ennio corps a prisoner
ami now in the best of feeling for nil
<ild Coufed vetH, I will give a correct
vt'ision of tbe mutter of shootiug
Jumes M. Miller ncai' the little mouu
tain in Chesterfield, near the Broad
foot placo on the old Camden road.
I wns captured about 8 o'clock that
morning and put in tho Bull Pen, as
wc boys called it. About 4 that after
lioon there was 100 men called in line
and the drawing for life or death com
menced. Between one third and one
half nf the men had passed between
the two sentinels when the column
was halted and Mr. Miller wae taken
out and shot in lets limo than it has
taken to tell it This was done in re
taliation for a bummer found kil ed
near Lynches Creek hy some one, cer
tainly not Mr. Mi.ler, ns he was with
thu State troops, ?nd if he had been
nwny from his command would most
likely have been making his way tn
(Jefferson, where his home was. I saw
tho whole butchery As Mr. Miller
h. il been a neighbor of my father near
Jefferson, I heard what he said, it was
this: "I have been a class leader for
a number of years and I am ready."
Ho said nothing about 0 daughters,
nor was nny substitute offered or re
Another error of my old comrade is
this: It was not Hampton, but But
ler, that the 17th Army Corps dread
ed; for next day while we were on
the march from the yankee camp '.o
Cheraw some firing was heard iu front
und Col Hughes of thc 9th, III. Cav
alry i.> whoso chargo Blair hud put
me, said to mo "John, if I meet But
ler here, do you think I can whip
Ililli?'' my icply wns, "Don't think
you cnn Col," Well, said he, "you
lilli hnck to the rear and we will do
thc best,-God help UB," They thought
Gem M. C. Butler the moBt dangerous
man they had ever tackled.
About thc outrages aud the cruelties
perpetrated by Gen. Frank P. Blair's
corps, my old oom nulos Ford and Co
burn uro right. My father iu law lived
in 3 inileB of Blair's camp; my wife
.was there, and thc yanks stripped us
of everything. They mudo my father
iu law pull off his simes and took them

O, (ho hardships wc did endure on
that march from Cheraw to Newborn.
At Bouoellsville, where I now live,
one mun, Poison, wns shot for trying
to get a drii k of unter out of a ditch
that u ns iu the lol where D D McColl'B
house now stands.. Numbers of old
men aud boys dieel on thc march irom
exposure and ill usage. We were made
to double quiok 15 miles one pitch
dark night through mud knee deep.
This after the fight at Bentonyille.
Frenchers died that night.

FROM HEBRON TO BEHHETTSYILLE.
Mr. Editor-Afier a hard fought
fattie with "general green'' on our
farm, and having some business up nt
Beuncltsville, I nud son Thomas con
cluded that we would make a flank
movement to get there. So we left
our home the first day of June, taking
a rearward route by Widow McDuffie's
colored. From thence by James Ho
mer's to James McDnniels mill and on
to thc Cross at or near the ole! Pee
Dee church of my young days. From
thence to Bennettsvillc-seeing noth
ing that was flattering in the way of
farming. But, oh my, "general green"
was wielding his scepter vigorously in
the fields and farms on the way and
not much doing to flank him.
From Beunctl8vil)c we took tho old
Hebron rond homo. Soon after our
arrival there I visited u fine pencil
tree full of ripe fruit, thanking God I
wns el ill clothed and in my right mind
and the crop nt home in a state of
prosperity mid looking Uko we will be
fed and be able lo pay our debts.
Brother farmers, do not bc discour
u cd, 1 have always heard that the
darkest were just before day. This is
the way ol' Heavenly father has taken
to cut down acreage ; and sometimes
I get tickled in my sleeves, to know
(hat wo have to lose to keep us irom
gening above ourselves.
From ibo present outlook there will
be no trouble lo get cotton picked this
tall, so milch will have to bc mowed
for the grass, und corn, perbups, can
not bo bought nt nny price-and that
tickles old .Joel.
Iviiler-This is the 5th of Juno, nud
have just returned from a stroll of
three III ile? from home, viewing the
crops. Colton wns looking fine, but
(ho co:ti whs lillie and yellow, and
about one Hereof corn lo '25 in cotton.
This was ulong the public roads, and
1 returned home helter satisfied with
my own farm (han I was before.

No other one thing bu given the o itv? a
and towns ot tho world BO much tro ubi o ta
sewerage. Properly disposed ot in deep
water it oiten aocuroulates_to roch an
ox tent, after a great bamber of yeats,
as to cuuBO sickness and great in<x>nve.
nience. Such is the case with the olty
of Havana, where ships cannot be an
chored in the ueual way, by casting
anchor to the bottom of tho bay, but
havo to bo fastened to buoy a fixe J in
tho harbor for that purpose. If cast in the
usual way, when taken np, the anchor
will biiog with it the horrible tilth accumu
lated L a long deposit of sewerage Ia den
witb the deadly germs of yellow fever and
otb or pestilential dioceses. Fblladclphia
has untold troublo and expenso in the
management of ber soworage. For many
years it was deposited in the SchuykiU,
but a malignant type of typhoid fever
more than decimated the population bor?
dering upon that river, and large expeme
had to bo iuourred to remedy the evil, but
it hoe not boen entirely eradicated. Tbese
cities aro named as furnishing an illustra
tion. Tbere are haodredB ia the United
States that have suffered more or tess, in
various ways from this great menace thnt
hangs ovor all of them. If seaport towns
have troublo, what mast be the danger to
tho inland towns tbat have no aalt-water
to partially neutralizo the deadly character
of thin greatest moonee to tho pabilo
health and comfort? As long as tho garb
age and sewerage of cities and towns is left
to the open air and sunshine to dissipate
tho ill odors, and to tho insects and Beaven
gore to destroy the matter, no possible
harm con ?orno of it, especially if it bo re
moved to uninhabited areas; bat when
taken from those agonoios, appointed by
God for its destruction, and put directly
into water to fester and to poison it, the
danger becomes of such proportions aa to
require tho groatest possible care and lar
geBt expense to put it entirely out of reach
of tho inhabitation of mao. I have given this
Bubject considerable atteution and claim to
havo gathered informatioa that will con
vince any reasonable mind that tho small
inland towns of the State with their limi
ted means cannot safely provide for the
disposition of sewerage, and must roly upon
sanitation along tho linos of tho old sys
tem, utilcss they be in easy rcaob of ?orne
liver. It is true any town may be able to
get its sewerage away from its own doon,
where it will work no barm to its inhabi
tants, but if the sewcrago be dopositcd HOI r
I plantations, or country residences it will
destroy these latter, ned actions in the
Courts for damages that will lay a burdon
upon tho town sufficient to pay the full
value of the proporty destroyed and dan
ugca beeiden for maintaining a private
nuisance will bo tho probable cons?quences
Charlotte, N C., bas had to pay heavily
along this line, and besidos has boon oom*
polled to put in two filters at a cost of $35,
ooo.00, and it in doubtful if these will
succeed, and tho opinioa prevail H that ubo
will at last hs? ?J to pipe her seworage ten
milos to tho Catawba rivor. She at first
deposited it in a crook on the border of
tho town, and it was not long before a
malignant typo of typhoid fever broko out
all along that sido of the oity bordering ou
the oreek. She then changed the deposit
to a crock about two miles away and lt

not be financially able to provide for the
engineering necessary to remedy the evil.
If tho sewerage be put lower down in the
creek it will destroy tho health of the plan
tations and residents along its coarse and
damage suits followed by injunctions will
give us trouble such as wo never contempla
Our City Fathers, Boveral years ago, ac
cording to my recollection, passed an or?
dinance prohibiting tho throwing of barrels
of this mutter into the creek stream Tbe
Mayor and every Councilman should make
moBt diligent inquiry into this matter each
for himself, and only aot after the plainest
proof that the measure can work no ill,
and after requiring the most stringent safe
guards, with a final proviso that tbe fran
chisa could be recalled at any titao. The
parties alleging the dangor should ho
heard and their facts and information
given duo consideration.
Aiken is in serious troublo with h?r sew?
erago. and has suits Leeanne she hos practi
cally destroyed the plantations along the
banks of a stream into which sho empties
her sewerage two milcB away. I believe our
wolla are largely supplied from the streams
Out water bearing stratum ?B doubtless
reached hy tho waters that are constantly
going into the ground from the streams.
Water will permeate the soil and the clay
roadily, as may ba seen whore rain is
pooled upon the earth. It will surely per
meate it from the creeks in liko manner,
and I have noticed that when the water
geta scant in the creoks it gets low in the
wei If and rice versa. If the water-bearing
stratum gets its supply from the surface cf
tho earth (and it must) it cannot got it
from any other placo than tbe ntreams,
for tho rain doos not run into tho wolla,
but into tho stream?, and the water must
be distributed from them to the wella.
It cannot bo arguod on principle that
single individuals may'deposit coverage tn
the creek, while a water-works and sewer
age system nhould not. Sowerago is sower
ago. Of course, a great amonut will^iooner
bring trouble than a small ono, but a small
amount will bring it in the end.
I am informed that tho Grand Jury
presented tho jail newer which empties in
to tho creek, at the last form of Conrt;
und tho llighland Park Hotel of Aikoo,
S. C., sovoral years ago brought noriour.
troublo upon itself and noighbors by pip
ing its Bcwerago into a ravine in a barren
section two miles off, tho odor alone caus
ing tho Hotel to abandon it. No system
that stops short of Pee Doo rivor can bo
considered safo for in, and suoh a system
I would advocate if tho town should put
Thc ijurntiou ia one of supreme import
and the favor of friends munt not affect
its adjustment. Tho granting of a franchiso
ie always fraught with danger where it in
volves tho URO of town property for private
eiu'e, and if fhoro be tho leaat doubt that
its operation will bo without injury to tho
public welt .tri: it should bo ref lined.
