inen of granite from the Ragsdale r<
quarry, at Slair's, which is wonderful
in the manner of splitting. The slab hi
n as two feet by four and averaged in a
thickness about one inch to one and a d
quarter. The remarkable feature is fi
that it was split without tLe use of a
drills, was dona, we are informed, by o
hammers alone. Mr. Iheath, who
manages the quarry for Messrs.
Ragsdale & Ragsdale, says he has
never so even and uniform piece of
granite, of its size, gotten out without tI
the use of drills before. It is a very ri
pretty specimen beyond a doubt. a

MAJ. WOODWARD'S LETTER.
Says We Misquoted Him--His Explana
tion--Stands by the Mass Meeting Plan.
n Mr. Editor: You did not quote my
speech at the late mass meeting cor
rectly, and I desire to amend ) our
publication. "I said I had no idea
peace and harmony would ever be
reach, d under the leadership of Irby
and that this meeting should empha
t size its desire for peace by asking him
to resign the chairmanship. I quoted
an intimate friend of his, who told me
two years ago if I watched his (Irby's)
movements I would see him kick
whenever there was a seriou3 demon
stration for peace, and that he would
keer ' ap until he had secured his
second term;" not as you publish,
"that a gentleman who was in position
to know had told him (me) that Irby
had said there shall be no peace until
alter the election for United States
I did say, however, that I had
watched him and others of the leaders
and that the gentleman's prediction
had been verified in the minutcst par
ticular. A nd right here I wish to say
that thi is the trouble about getting
togeth( ; tbe people, the rank and file
of both factions, are desirous of doing
so, but the leaders who bave profited
by the row consider it unprofitable to
make peace, and will divert the issues
if possible. My mind was drawn to
- Irby by an incident which I wilt relate
in no spirit of unkindness nor unjust
criticism, but because I think it prob
able that good will result. When the
imass meeting was called to order I
was in attendance uron a meeting in
th Town Ihall where the Straighteut
or hianahan faction were discussing,
amongst othe' things, the propriety of
attending the meeting in the Court
House, whun a member of the execu
tive committee drew from his pocket a
copy of TUE NEWS AND HERALD with
Mr. John W. Lyles' article in it, and
after quoting extracts passed the paper
around to the committee. The effect
was instantaneous and it was deter
mined to have nothing to do with the
mass meetinst, as there could be no
recociliation with any party led by so
iniscreet a person. I took the p si
tion, backed by one other, that this
was as much my country as any other
man's, and whilst I was sorry my dis
tinguished cousin and brother-in-law
h ad not increased his wisdom with his
advancing years, nor added to his
rather scant stock of charity by the
addition of more piety, I did not in
tend his pronunciamento should keep
me away, and lett the meeting in ses

Q. D. WILLIFOR
proposition struck us as astounding at
the time. The main point which is in
dispute is, did Irby use the language,
or did the "friend of Irby"-"the gen
tleman in position to know"-use it?
We quoted the Major as saying, "that
a gentleman, who was in a position to
know, hal told him (meaning Major
W.)~tbat Irby had said there shall be
no peace in South Carolina until after
the election for United States Senator
comes off." These may not be the
exact words. The dispute is, did
the Major attribute this language to
Irby or to "this gentleman who was in
% position to know"-Irby's friend?
Since there has been a denial on the
part of Major Woodward that he in
is speech attributed this language to
[rby but to the gentleman who was
talking to him, we have asked nine or
ten men who were present what he
said, and we are borne out by all of
them with one exception. So if we
did misquote the Major he must not
blame us, in view. of the fact that so
many bear us out in our original state
