(CORR ESPONDENC OF THE NEWS AND 1IECAI.D.)
the 27th tilt., 'vas chosei by the I lamp
ton Ri0le ( Liard onl which to celebrate
the anivihersarv of their organization.
A few days prior to Friday the weatli
er was very threatenig, and the clouds
forcibly reinildiig its otf lie tiie when
our orgaiization first originated. In
the gloomy days of '76, wihen the po
litical sky was so heavily overeast, ald
Chamberlain mid his associates were
seen above the horizon ats thunder
clouds thrcatening destruction to our
devoted counitry, ald when Tm N-ews
AND) lIIALD came touus with the t,idings'
orf those dreadful riots at Cainhoy anid
Charleston, thenu it was that the law
abiding and pecaceful citizens of Ridge
wvay and viciniity were aroused to the
.true state of aflhirs. It was at this
time that might have beeni seen going
to some p)lace of renidezvous all the
men of our village, from thegray-heads
to the beardless boys, all with determi
nation written oni their brows. The
Ob)ject of these meetings wvas to or
ganize fhr the p)rotect.ioni of our homes
andl firesides, anid to render assistance
to any other section that might call on
us8 for aid. All this may and probably
does seem foolishness to any onie who
did not plarticipiate in the excitement of
those times. A colllection of men
without any special leader, andl with
* 1mnogovernimnt except mutual interest,
was gradually organnized into a rifle
company with R. S. Desportes, Esq.,
as cap)tain. The next event-in our his
tory was our disbanmnt by his Ex
cellency (?) G overnor Chamiberlaini.
To this we apparently sublmitted, but
were all the time as a unit. Under the
* home rule of Governor HIamplton the
company again hunmg its flag to the
breeze, and adopted its present' name.
It having been decided by the compa
ny to celebrate their aniversary each
year by a shooting- match and p)icniic,
last Friday was selected as the day.
The company assembled at their head
quarters about nIne o'clock, anmd pr'o
coeded to their shiootinmg ground near
Palmer's sprinig, about the best loca
tion for a p)icic we ever' saw. The
fIrIng, at a regular Creedmore target,
a hundred yards, was commenced by
Orderly E. P. Davis, who struck the
"'black" and scored five. Shortly after
followed Hlaynes, Lowther and C.
Wr}lker with a score of five each. The
shooting continued, and out of one
hundred and two shots only two or
three missed the target, andl the bull's
eye had at least a dozon balls In it.
While the firing progressed, the
Guards chatted with the fair sex, manmy
of whom graced the occasion with their
presence, amnd alas! one soldier so far
A for'got himself as to actually degrade his
bayonet by using It on the sly to Impale
some pickle for his fair companion.
The Guards wore then marched to the
spring, and the sergeants detached to
spread out the bountif\l supply of re
freshm.nnts furnished by the ladles.
-The detail, however, must fain call on
Ilin ladlna for naltaiane, Aecaing
themselves moro accomplished in the
art. or .toring may provsiois ohan in
spreading theil out. This porfion ot
the progiranun1c110 went oil well, I'l<d We
think every on1e cnjoyed tie capital
After dinner the judges, Cols. Elkit
and Lamar, and Mfr. S. Y. McQuat ter8,
declared that Privato IHaynes had wou
the prize by scoring fourteen, or one
less than the mnaximui. Sergeants Davis
and Lowther and Privates Walker and
Lamar scored thirteen each. Few
scored less than tenl, and the entire
shooting was pronounced by Col.
Elkin to be the best, he had ever wit
nesed. Thle prize, a smatll imdittion,
in silver, of the (reedmore target, and
a present to the company fron Captain
Desportes, is to be shot for yearly, 1111d1
each wimiter is expected toadd another
bar-pendant inscribed with his name
and score. Thus in time it will become
quito a beautiful badge, and wvill be
worn wit.hi pride by the best, shot of the
year. Major Thomas inl a very pretty
anld appropriate specch delivered the
prize, and cautioned the wearer that
his laiurels be not plucked from his
brow at the next match. Ie consoled
the instcessful Competitors by saying
that. they had done well, and had only
lost by their comrades' doing better.
The 11. R. (.'s then gave three rousing
cheers, at the Captain's proposal, for
their newly elected nurjor. Returning
to headqlarters, the colipally was dis
missed toassemble for drill on Thursday
evening. The 11H1op" at night was
quite a. success, and we were pleased
to welcome some of our fullow-sol(liers
of the G. L. 1. inl their handsome uni
form, as well as som1e of the other Boro
boys. The beauty and intellect of the
fair sex of Winnsboro were also well
represented oil the grounds and at the
hop. Thus ended the pleasures of the
