T1he columns of the Chronicle have
givenl in full the accounts of the
great trial of Dr. ,James Woodrow.
This is the first formal arraignment
of the Doctor in ia court of the
church authorized to try his case, :.
though his peculiar teaehings have
been reviewed and criticised in every
assemblage of this deiiomin:atio2n.
He has been cleared of the charge of
heresy, and escapes even the ad mo
Ilition which was the mildest, foru of
punishinent he could have received,
and which, I believe, would have
been the penalty selected b y the
p)rosecution. The case will b e t aken,
On - complaint., before the (Geurgi:
Synod, which meets at Sparta in
November, and as this 114). v
has been against Dr. Wood row, the
verdict of the lower court may
be annulled. But annllime. a ver
dict of not guilty does not est.ah
lish a verdict of guilty, am : a n11w
trial before the Presb yterv con!
have but one termination. S nluieu.

out of, the facility i-1 accordalcLe with
the recommendation of' the (; enieral
Assembly. That of cours,' will sever
his connection with this institultion.
)r. WVoodrow's point was that. lie
could not a1ffor'd to resign u1nder fire,
and that as ie has been cleared of'
teaching error b)y the eonrt halvin

The features of the tri:c were 1i!
of interest. The t.wo p)er"-on)s pittedi
against each otier were p)romninen1t

of candor, courage aiid hig h ability-.

saw no evidence of malice of intol.
erance. It was the clen work of a
man who did his duty in the iost.
direct way, and did it w<Il. It was
not an enviable position-that of
prosecutor. It was a contest with
)r. Woodrow in his own field, amnong
his old friends. No mitan knows b' -
ter than Dr. Woodrow what Ie does
believe, and no man marshals his
proofs so completely. It. is hard to
fasten error or to impnte heresy"
)r. Woodrow says he believes the
-body of a maln was f'ormu,el b' sue
cessive steps through su,lc'eed in
stages of lower aninal life.
The objectors say he does not givye
full credit to God.

-I)eatr Mr. Edlitor : Thinking you would
i like to hear from our part of the county,
I write you upon that which is likely to
l' bie the most interesting topic, viz: the
erops in which we are all equally inter
' ested, for Ottt of the ground comes all
- The crops have improved wonderfully
I within the past few weeks, so much so
that even the most despondent farmers
acknowledge that there is a chance yet
for an average flue crop of cotton. The
corn crop on the river bottoms, as y0ou
are aware, has beet subject to repeated
freshets, antid is comparatively a loss.
We male no oats ani sorry wheat so
that our provision crops atre short.
lit spite of hardi t ihes and scarcity we
manage to keep up some social inter
course, and pienuics and barbecues have
had their usual patronage fron young
One of the social events of the past
week has been the arrival in our neigh
borhoo of our friend and former physi
cian, Col. T. G. White, whom we prefer
to call andt reinember as I)r. White, now
of Beaufort. Iis presence anmong ius,
antd in the vicinity of his old
home. was the signal for a regular
ovation to him from his former
neighbors and friends, both black and
wihite, most of whomu hal been his pa
tieits when ie practiced medicine from
his plaital ion at Island Ford, in this
County. The )octor was on his way up
the cotntry bitt was fairly capturect and
inuced to stay over among us and such
at tention was shown hin as is seldom
. given to any but a prodigal son. After
an absence of nine or ten years, during
which time "the boys" had not seen him,
he is visiting the families of somte of the
mnca who were mnember's of his company
diring the war. Some call him Doctor
antid others call him Lieutenant, but all
agree that lie has not grown older in ap
pearance, anti is the same kind, genial
friend and comrade that made him a
favorite officer in the war, and a valued
friend and ritizen after It was over. Ile
iowic"i, von know, owned the valuable
and extenlsive plattatiotn at Island Ford
oil the Saluda, but afterwards sold it
and remove<l to his fol imer residence ott
The 1)octor gives ple+asant accounts of
the improving cotlditiot of the low count
try since 187, and while we hope lhe is
" lprsperous, we hope he has the same
happy remenmiberanees of our section
wlhich is entertained for him. Many of
I his old comrales in atms have, since the
war. retiret troops of sons who would be
li:11ble to military (ity in ease of a for
eigi wrar, and shoul a war break out.
withI Mexico, the Colonel, if lie wanted
to raise a regiment, would he: apt to colmi
tence recruiting atmong the sons of
fathers whose Contith..iec aiI affection
he won with the parents. most of whom
in this neighborhood composed, his con
preiy in the late war.
i'olit ics are (hlll, with the exception of
the Interest taken in the approaching
Congressional nomination, in proportion
as our frienid Capt. J. N. Lipscomb or
),Mr. George Johnstonle happeis to be the
favorite of either wing of our Democracy.
Col. White, in allusion to the candidacy
of either of the candidates has declined
exert.ing any influencec upon any of his
friends. IIe said Capt. Lipscomb had
lice ii Is neighbor and friend on Saluda
for many years and was entitled to any
honor thhat his ability, faithfulness and
patriotisim could secure.
