Co.umiim., May 20.--I have al
reay given to the readers of tho
JI~nernal o* C'onnterec brie f sk~etchles
of the life and career of each of tho
leaders of the House of Represen
tatives. By leaders, I mean of
courso those whose official positions
gjVo them that pre-ominenco.
There are many other young mien
whose intelligence and ability have I
Ilacled them idready far in advance,
and who are destined to take a
p"ollinet, part in the future his;tory
of the I'alnt to State, and it is of
these that I now desire to say somc
lION. .ITIN J. uIEM'lriLL,

versity. 1He loe:; not speak often,
hut wlen he does it is always to the
1)oint. He is clear and logical in
ar'gunent, has ia fine delivery, and
atlway coinands the attention of
the House. Ho is unmarried, a
strikingly handsome young mlan,
and a nativeo of Chester county.
Mr. Hemphill's able argument on
the appropriation bill last week is'
acknow1uloegl by all who heard it to
have eDen one of the most eloquent,
c.ear and logical speeches of the
n1ON. Ioni:ilT R. fmlI'IILL,
his cousin, heads the delegation
from Abbeville anl is atn acquisition
to the brains of the House. Ho is
kn n as the '"handsomnest editor"
ll the Siate. Mr. }cem)Iphlill is
tirity-seven years 01(1 and graduated
at I sk ine College, in Duo Vest,
Abbeville county, in 1859, with the
highest honors of his class. Ho
went into the war in the 7th South
Carolina Volunteers, as a private,
and after serving one year,re-enlist
ed in Orr's Riles, and for the last
two years of the war was the Ser~
geant-Major of that regiment. He
was wounded at Chancellorsville
Geittysb urg and Petersburg. After
ins return he stuidied law under his
unce, lion. Jaimes Hemnphill, of
Chester, and wvent to Texas, where
1h( pra'lctised his prof~essioni with
great success for' two voar's. He

wvields a trenchant pen and is master1
of rhetoric. He is a good orator
anid a readly debater, hats self-pos
sessonf and a perfect comfmandl of
elegant English. He is as true as

pr'oud of her young representative.
lION. J. w. OjiAY,
a member fr'om Greenville, was boen ,
in Edgefiold in 18415, and was'
graduated at Wofford College.
D)uring the war, although under
age, lie entered tile famous Hamp
toni Legion as ai private, but was
subsequently made a captain in a
Geor'gima regiment. Mr. Gray moved
to Greenville in 1871, and after
proeprinmg himsei~lf for the bar at
once ontoredl upon a growing and
successful practice. Ho was elected
to the present Legislature in the
fall of 1876, and soon made his
mark as a gentlomnan of rare dis
eriintation andc of careful thought.
He is an earnest worker both in the
committeeo-room and on the floor of
the House, rarely inisses roll call,
and is untiring in the discharge of
the important and yesponsible iter
ests intrusted to his keeping.
THE ION. it. W. sIigst,
one of the representatives fronm
Andorson j county, was born at
Pensleton, September 11th, 1840.
Hie is the second son of Hon. Rt. F.
Simpson, who represented the Third
Congressional District for a number
of teris in the United State's Con
gross, colmanding the respect of
all and the warm confidenco of the
Southern meubers, and who was
succeeded by the lato ex-Governor
J. L. Orr. He graduated at Wof
ford College at twenty years of ago
and inmediately thereafter volun -
teered into the Confederato service,
and remained in the service, though
broken dowl in health, until the
close of the war. In 1863 lie naar
ried the second daughter of the lata
John Garlington, Esq., of Laurens.
Since the close of the war ho hmts
devoted liniself to his busine
(planting), and has always imanifes
fed a deep interest in everything
temding to the advanceinejt and
elevmibon of his chosen profession.
That his services are appreciated is
sho;)wn by his being selected to this
his second term by a largely in-,
creased majority. Mr. Simpson is
a h-ird worker, liberal in his views,
a staunch Demiuocrat, and 'a devoted
sniporter of Governor .lnpton.
His motto has always bpen' that
the white people of this Mtiato could
accept, no favor u from the Radical
party without putting themselves
upoli a level with the individuals of
that party: hcr eo ho has been over
an advocate of the Straight-out
policy. Mr. S. was admitted to thQ
bar at one of the recent terns of
the court in Andcrson county.
The Legends of Plants.
The rose of England becamo es

The thistle is honored as the
(lm)lemn of Scotland, from the cir
cumstance that once upon a time a

when oneo of the soldiors trod on a

When the question of corporal

Boston association of mninis,

o botter than it should be. -'What

hoe young man, 'Punishments are

Judalh Peter JDonjamnin, the most
popular lawyer in London, whose in..
lomo is over $100,000 a year, was
formerly Secretary of State of the
Southern Confederacy. He is sixty

F-Ibrow, went to New Orloans after
graduation at Yale, was a whig,
Lhen a Democratic Unitedi States
Benator, and then a Confedqerate.
The editor of a Weatorn paper
recently stigmatized a rival quill
dlriver as "a bushwhacker, a inur..
duror and a yellow dog." To whica
the canine editor retaliates that his.
assailant is, "an unhappy wreok, a
poor lost soul, a flshwoman, ta
maniac and an unnliannered sot." A
neutral neighbor, the Miami .Repun
lican, protests thus :"Whit a
miserable, mulo-cheeked, cowvardly
set of libellous dirt slingers these
newspaper crews must be to resqr t
to such porsonalities."
