Former Newberrian, Now of Texas, Writes
Interestingly Of The Days Of "No
More"-The Newberry'of Old.
My last closed with "true bill,
Daniel Goggans, foreman." In a
Herald and News, sent me by my
Id friend Dr. S. G. Welch, was the
lure of Mrs. Hun Herbert, so well
emembered by wife and me as a
sprightly, handsome girl, and also
one of Goggans' daughters, upon
which I involuntarily exclaimed,
'True Bill, Daniel Goggans, fore
man." Afterwards I saw "Ex-Con
fed's" account of its origin, which
may be true; but I think it came
from the fact that Goggans was often
on the grand jury, and his known
common sense, stern uprightness of
character, and fine qualities as a
citizen, caused him to be made fore
man-and that thus the affirmation
A certain squad of mischievous
young men, (they may have been
"YEx-Confed's" crowd), rocked thle
log house in which two women lived,
and as they charged they sang this
b)at.tle cry,
''Hail Columbia, happy landl,
If I dlon't kill you I'll he d--d !"'
\The grand1 jury vinwed1 the caso:
result, "True bill, Daniel Goggans,
foreman," (doubtless.) The court in1
'terviewed them: result, guilty and

ever forgave the good 01(1 1Jndge.

In my last, going from the Baker

rectitudo of Ohrist. She was of the
excellent of the earth. I had a kind
affection for them and often visited
them. I boarded with them while
going to school to Mr. Galloway at
Head Springs, also Dr. G. W. Glenn
and his nephews, Thos. 0. and Jeff
E. Brown, two lovely and intelligent
little fellows. Wash was strict upon
them, and I proposed the next time
he was hard on them, that we would
pitch into him; luckily we didn't
pitch, for Wash would have worn us
out. Mr. Sloan and my father had
been Covenanters and warm friends
and when my mother came to pay
my board, he would have none of it.
While here Mr. Galloway appeared
with his bride nee Miss Martha
Speers. She had rare intellectual
attainments and unfeigned piety.

her person shined."

elders and parsons in Connectient,
with a clear conscience owned slaves
and branded them like cattle; and
the pious old gents made their slaves
attend worship, following at a re
spectful distance buthind them and
sit in the "nigger's pew." So at
Head Spring a few negroes, "not
