The question may be safely asked: Is
here not much that can be safely accom
plished towards bringing Ornngeburg to
an important and commanding position,
without hampering her resources, or ex
perimenting doubtfully upon the result?
We contend that there is very much,
which will' permanently enlarge her
growth, appreciate every foot of her soil,
and enhance ever}' item of her produc
tions. Aiken has a world-wide reputa
tion as the popular Sanitarium of the
South. Florida annually derives an im
mense revenue from those in search of
health, and the former though justly de
serving its success, first from its peculiar
ly beneficial elements of hygienic worth,
and next from the enterprise of its citi
zens, has nothing to boast over her neigh
bor, Orangeburg, tlic climate of which is
condusive of extraordinary health,- and
is eminently fitted to restore cases of
pulmonic tendency. A gentleman' re
cently sojourning among us, expressed
himself, that the climate of Orangeburg
did more for his case of ill health, than
even Aiken, there ho lost ground, and
here he regained all he had lost. His
testimony was unsolicited ; with him it
was a vital question, and his opinion can
not fail to present Orangeburg as the
proper resort for all similarly affect
ed with pulmonnrj disease. If the
attention of invalids is directed hither,
what do they need to retain them ; the
answer is simply, accommodations of a
proper kind. They want a hotel com
bining the advantages of handsome en
?tertainmcnt, with the addition of recrea
tion and amusement,' such as bowling
alleys, swings, bath' rooms, spacious
grounds, and other diversions of a pleas
ant and beneficial kind. Wc mean no
disparagement to the hotels of the town,
these compare favorably with those of
any portion of the State, but tterc de
signed, and arc fitted only for the itiner
ant visitor, or for local patronage. An
invalid leaving the comforts of homo in
search of health, is ricocssariljj depressed,
nud demands extras, both for physical
aud mental refreshment, for which he is
willing, und able to pay* If we have the
olimnto to induce travellers Ivere, wouhf
it not pay to entertain them. . Wo confi
dently beliovo that a first class hotel,
properly advertised, would be crowded
every season, and prove a first class in
vestment. Who will move first?
THE 281'H OF" JUNE,
Ie justly Carolina's* anniversary. The
thunderings'Of the' 4th of July ho.iald a
.tumultnoOs mockery, and she turns a
deaf ear to the salvos Of rejoicing which
beginning in praise for Liberty, is con
tinued in glee for tho fetters rivited on
tho limbs of brethren, whoso national
prestige dates back to tho days of tho
Revolution. It was a dark hour in the
history of tho old thirteen, when Sir
Peter Parker, and General Clinton mov
ed to the humbling of the Palmetto State?
Arnold and Montgomery had been re
.pulsed boforo Quebec, * and the gallaut
Montgomery had yielded his life a costly
sacrifice. Norfolk had been laid in ashes
by a tory Governor, Falmouth shared
the same fate. The army of General
Washington, in all 10,000 men were al
most inactive for want of arms and
equipment, and the reduction of every
redoubt, and despersion of every rebel,
was seemingly a question of lime. The
news of the enemy's advance was a signal
of terror to all except the gallant Moiil
trie, and his feeble handful of gunners.
Entrenched behind a sand work faced
with logs of palmetto, they waited the
approach of tho English fleet, ohe vessel
of which (tho Actcon) carried heavier
metal than the fort. The fight was open
ed at close range, and during that long
day, under the rays of a torild sun, the
garrison kept the enemy in deep water.
A shot hurled the Hag of?the fort to the
earth, but a Jar per tied the torn banner
to his sponge staff, and amid the cheers
of his fellows, nnd-thc shot of the foe, ho
flung out the flag of defiance. It was a
day of victory, the Acteon stranded, and
fell a^prcy to the deadly aim of the gun
ners of Fort Sullivan, and Sir Peter
was beaten away in disaster. IL was a
State achievement, a State success, every
district had its quota of representatives,
and Orangeburg was a star in the galaxy
of triumph.' We extract from u letter of
date 27th June, 1S42, addressed by Dr.
Jos. Johnson to Col. Wade Hampton,
"Col. Win. Thompson of O'rangeburg
district, having been appointed to the
command of the 3d regiment bad his
compliment of men soon made up by the
enlistment of some of the most expert
riflemen in the State, he himself being
one of the most practised among them.
He had the finest eye I ever saw in the
head of mortal man.
With but little experience in war, and cor-*
tainly without having ever heard a cannon
fired at an enemy, the 2d and 3d Regiment*
were ordered to oppose the beet appointed
armament that had then been equipped against
any part of the United States?not inertly sent
for the capture of Charleston, but for the con
quest of the thiec southern States. Col. Thomp
son's command was stationed at the eastern ex
tremity of Sullivan's Island, at a small redoubt
called the advanced Guard, and ordered to pro
tect it and Fort Sullivan from the bayonets of
Sir Henry Cliiiton's Infantry, then encamped
on lx)ng Island, Within sight of the redoubt
lie had but two pieces of cannon, and it was
then first proved that Riflemen make the best
Gunnera for Artillery. The plan of attack was
this: while the fleet attacked the forte, the Ilrit
isb Army was to land and storm them if not al
ready abandoned. An armed schooner and a
flotilla of ai med hoats, were ordered to attack
Col. Thompson's redoubt, in order to cover the
landing of tho infantry. They did indeed re
peatedly make tlie attack, but were always re
ceived by the cool, well directed lire of the
Orangeburg sharp shooters, then for the first
time ftriiigCannon loaded with grape (hot, the
flotilla was always repulsed with great loss.
Mr. alexander FoRRESTBR, a r.caV relation
of the Rowand family, was in South Carolina,
at the commencement of the revolution, and
like many "other conscientious, but mistaken
nun, believed that his first duly was to hi*
King; He returned after the revolution, ami
told my father in my presence, that he was one
of the detachment ordeicd to land on the eas
tern end of the island; that lie wns ill the armed
schooner, and that in every uttotopt nuulo to
reach tho position niwigned to them, the. fifini ruc
tion from Col. Thompson's two cannon was so
great and their decks no repeatedly swept by
grape shot, tint even the seamen could not lit
made to work Iho vessel, and tho landing of tho
Iirittish troops wns thus prevented. Col. Mori.
trie well merited the praises bestowed on him
for,so ably defending thf fjrt, called fort Moul
trie in complinent to its gallant defender- but
the no less successful and important duty per
formed by Col. Thompson's, at his station, is
not generally known. They who suffered by it,
were the least willing to acknowledge their de
feat and ascribed their failure to other causes.
In their official despatches they said thai the
'flotilla became embarrassed'among the shoals,
and tlie'channel proved too deep' tot the Infant
try to cross over. .One of their own papers, the
St. James'r Chronicle, announced in an Ep
igram, a, miracle near Sullivan's Island.

From two feet deep, the waters rose to seven.
The celebration of the 28th in- ante
bellum days, was a day of grand display
of feathers and parade. The "Mpultrie
Guard" and Palmetto Guard in friendly
rivalry usually paraded the streets of
Charleston, on their way to Sullivan's
Island, until the shadows of the , then
forth qoming unpleasantness, tabood them
from Fort Moultrie, when these two
companies resorted to the oak grove3 of
Mount Pleasant, for target practice. ?" At
night the round of toast and song drove
heavy sleep away. Then Waynn. Lena
cau Hanckel and Palmer in turn comman
ded the Moultrics. And Cuthberiand
Holmes led the bravo Palmettos. The
long roll of grim war saw the ranks of
these two companies never so full, and
reserving their special names, they fought
until decimated to a corporals guard
they were each merged with the Confed
erate army. A remnant of these .two
commands are left, and some arc domi
ciled in our mid.st. r?ic perpetuation of
the celebration of the 28th is again re
newed in Charleston,, and the Sta'c is
proud of the dead of 1770 who hurled
back a tyrant foe, and the equally glo
.rious dead, and survivors df that long
four and half years siege, who held Char
leston against all tho hate, the strength
and treachery of a Northern enemy, who
forgetting the causes which led to the re
sistance of British aggression, were treach
erous enough to raise the fratricidal
hand agnins.1. those, whose indignities were
more excusable in '70 than in '00.
TO THE PEOPLE UP ullANGEBURG.
Fellow-Citizens:?The time is at
hand, when the health of the Town dor
mands the serious attention of overy .onc.
That dreadful scourge of tJ?e nations,
Asiatic Cholera, has made its appear
ance in various parts of the country, and
is gradually but surely working its way
hither and thither. The preventive of
the disease is civic, domestic ami personal
cleanliness. The preventive is effective,
but the cure for tlie disease is unknown.
It behooves us, therefore, if we desire to
be presorved from this and other diseases,
to co-operate earnestly in all measures
to promote the cleanliness of our Town.
The Board of ?Health, upon whom is
imposed the unpleasant, but necessary
duty, of seeing that proper regulations
arc enforced for the common good, take
this opportunity of requesting all good
citizens to act promptly and cheerfully in
carrying out the Health Regulations of
the town, adopted by the Town Council,
on the recommendation of the Board ;
and to obey, without demur, such in
structions as they may receive, for the
sake of their own security, and the ben
efit of the town.
