teresting Sketch of the Old Hero
Made Famous in Story.
'he Pendleton chapter, U. D. C.,
ted Prof. W. S. Morrison, of
mson College, to deliver an ad.
as On Memorial Day, May 9th,
on the history of "Old Pendleton,"
d in complying with the invitation
gave an instructive address upon
e early history of Pendleton dis.
ict., which originally included the
resent counties of Greenville, Pick
ens, Oconee and Anderson. Among
the interesting sketches of this sec
tion, Prof. Morrison alluded to the
well-known historical novel, "Horse
Shoe Robertson," written by J. P.
Kennedy, Esq., of Maryland, the
hero of which was a native of Pendle
ton district and lived on Chaunga
river for nearly a third of a century.

orrison read the following extract
m an old newspaper, the Flag of
Union, published at Tuscaloosa,
and dated January 17, 1838:

as read it would not give an
ay's ride to see the venerable
hero of the tale of the "Tory
doncy," the immortal Horse

Curry" and "Hugh Haber
" The venerable patriot bear
he familiar sobriquet., and whose
Mr. Kennedy has nade as
liar in the mouths of American
hs as household words, was visit
y us, in coipaniky with several
ds, one day last week. We found
old gentleman on his plantation,
ut twelve miflos from this city, as
fortably situated with respect to
is world's goods as any one could
esire to have him. It was gratify
ing to us to see him in his old age,
:after having served through the
whole war of Independence, thus
-seated under his own vine and fig
itree, with his children around him
and with the partner of his early
toils and trials still continued to him,
enjoying in poace and safety the rich
rewards of that ardnous struggle, in
the most gloomy and desponding
hour of which he was found as
ready, as earnest, as zealous, for the
cause of liberty, aS when victory
perched upon her standard, and the
star of the "Tory Ascendency" was
for awhile dimmed by defeat, and in
which he continued with unshaken
faith and constancy until it sank be.
low the horizon, never again to rise.
The old gentleman gave na a partial
history of his Revolutionary adven
tures, containinrg muany interesting
facts respecting t he dlomination of
the Tory plarty in the south during
the times of the R?evolut ion, which
Mr. Kennedy has niot recorded in his
boo0k. But it will chiiefly interest
our readIers, or that portion of themn
at least to whom the history of the
old hero's achievement.s as recorded
by Mr. Kennedy is famuiliar, to be
assured that the principal inidients
therein p)ort rayed are st rictly true.
That his escape from Chiarlest on

the (teathI of J im Curry, are aill nar
rated pretty much as they occurred,

almost every othler used ini thle book,
with the e'xceptioni of his owni, are'
real suid riot lict itinms. lIis owvn
nanie, he inuforumed us, is James;
and that lie dlid niot go by the
familiar appellat ion by wvhich he
is 'now so wvidely kneown until after
the wvar, when hte acqjuired it from
the form of his pliant ationi in the
Horseshoe Bend of the Changa crook,
which was bestowed upon him by
the legislature of South Carolina in
consequence of the services he had
rendered during the war. This
estate, we understood him to say, he
still owned.
He was born, he says, in 1759,
and entered the army in his seven
teenth year. Before the close of the
war, says he commanded a troop of
horses, so that his military title is
that of Capt. Horseshoe. Although
in infirm health, lie bears evident
marks of having been a man of great
personal strength and activity. He
is now afflicted with a troublesome
cough, which, in the natural course
of events, must in a few years, wear I
out his aged frame. Yet, notwith- I
standing his eye still sparkles with
tho fire of youth, as he recounts
the stirring and thrill,g incidents.of
the war, and that sly, quiet humor, I
so well described by Konnedy, may
still be seen playing around his
mouth as one calls to his recollec
tions any of the pranks lie was wont I
to play upon any of "Tory vag
grants" as he very properly styles
them. The old gentleman received
us with warm cordiality an(d hos
pitality, and after partaking of the I
bounties of his board and spending F
a night under his hospitable roof, we
took leave of him, sincerely wishing
him many years of the peaceful on
joyment of that liberty which lie
fought so long and so bravely to
achieve. It will not be uninterest
ing, we hope, to remark that the old
hero still considers himself a soldier,
though the nature of his warfare is
changed. He is now as zealous a
promoter of the Redeemer's cause as
lie once was in securing the inde
pendence. of his country.
Since the above was in typo we
have heard of the death of the aged
partner of this venerable patriot.
An obituary notice will be found in
anothel column.
Truly in friendship,
Signed: Thomas P. Clinton.
Within a few weeks after the visit
thus described the old soldier met
"the last enemy that shall bo, over
come." His grave is near the
Black Warrior river, a few miles
from Ttscaloosa, Ala , and thn in
scription on the marble marking his
last resting place is:

Brown, a gigantic bully, is a spec

him with his unbrella. Clay knew
his man and at onco pulled out his
bowie knife. Here is his tiecount of
the controversy that followed:
"Before I could strike I was seized
from behind and borne by force
about fifteen feet from Brown, who,
being now armed with a Colt's re
volver, cried: 'Clear the way and lot
me kill the damned rascal.' Tho
way was speedily cleared, and I stood
isolated from the crowd. Now, as
Brown had his pistol bearing on me,
I had either to run or advance. So,
turning my left side toward him,
with my loft arm covering it, so as
to protect it to that extont, I ad
vanced rapidly on him, knife in hand.
Seeing I was coming, he know very
well that nothing but a sudden and
fatal shot could save him. So ho
held his fire, and taking deliberato
aim just as I Wias within arm's roach
he fired at my heart. I camv down
upon his head with a tremendous
blow, which would have split opn
an ordinary skull, but Brown's was
as thick as that of an African. Tho
blow laid his skull open about. three
inches to the brain, indenting it., bit,
not breaking tho textures; but, it so
stunned him that ho was no more
able to fire, and feebly attempted to
soize me. Iis fellow conspirators
now grasped me and hold both arms
above my elbows, which only allowed
me to strike with the foroarm as
Brown advanced uipon me. I was
also struck with hickory sticks and
c-- 'rs. But fin,ling I was likely to
ge. loose, they throw Brown over
the stone fence, which, only two foot
high on our side, was sovoni or eight
on the lower side. So Brown had a
terrible fall, which ended tho contest.
Raising my bloody knife, I said: 'I
repent that the statement made by
the speaker before Brown's assmilt
has been proven a falsehood, and I
stand ready to defend the truth.'
Bnt, neither the speakor of the day
nor any of the conspiratorm taking
up my challenge, some of my friends,
recovering from their lethargy, took
me by the arm to the dwelling house,
and, on opening my vest aid shirt
bosom, found only a red spot over
my heart, but no wound. On ox
amination it was found that the ball
as I pulled up the scabbard of Iy
bowie knife, in drawing the blade,
had entered the leather near tho
point, which was lined with silver,
and was there lodged."
Brown's skull was cut to the brain
in several places, one ear was slit
nearly off, one eye gouged1 out and
he had other woands. It is a plens.

Clay was tried for mayhem, LIonry

UNOPENED FOR THIRTY YEARS.
A Package Left at Charlotte with Fain

Atlanta Journal.
Charlotte, N. C., July 25.--One
family in this county certainly holds
honor higher than curiosity, and has
not the least desire to open i seatled
package that has been in its posses

In 1869 a man who gave his name
as Madion M. Tyler, and said he
was front Brooklyn, N. Y., came to
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Hugh
MeAuley, who live near Ifuntersvillo,
and leased a vacant store room that

In the second year of his life at

from Mrs. McAuley. Six months

pretparations that indicated his de

the debt Tyler walked into the h0use

Tylnr left, and his never been

Sono years ago Mrs. McAuley died,
but before she died she gave the
package to her sister, Miss Martha
Black, and asked her to keep it until
Tyler returied for it or sont for

The parcel is now in the poss.
