^D?rih^lh'?^winter of %jto)$-%4ffi
was 1 my 'f?rtune to bo ''"president of
one of the courts-martial of the Army
of'!:^fjtKirnr' Virgj|mirr( One bleak
December mprn|rig*,while the'snow
covered the grounds and the wind
howled around our. pamp, I left my
bivouac firpto attend the session of
the cqurt, Winding along, for miles,
uncertain patlis, I at length arrived
at tho cour^.a'^^ound.pak Church.
$ay #jqtclay.had beep our duty .
to try the gallant soldiers of that
ai my4 charged with violations of mil
itary law ;' but^ never had I, on any.
previous occasion, fyeen greeted by
such anxious spectators as on that
morning-'Jtw^fted the opening of the
coprt. Case after case was djsppsed
of, and at length the case of "The
Confederate^States, vs. EdwardjCoop
cr" was called?charge, desertion. A
low murmur roso.spontaneously from
the baffle-sparred spectators qs q
young artilleryman rose "from"the
prisoner's bench, and in response to
tho question '"Guilty or not guilty?"
answered, "Not guilty."
The Judge Advocate was proceed?
ing to Open prosecution;' wheri the
court, observing that the prisoner
was unattended"!}/ counscl",~lnterposr
ed and inquired of the accused,
"Who is your counsel?" Supposing
it was his purpose to repreeent him
self bpi}>r^b^4op.rti: tjfe. J.urfgp i Ad
vocate was instructed to proceed.
10very- charge ahd specification against
the prisqner was sustained. The
prisouer was tuen'told to introduce
his witnesses^ | Ho replied i' "I have
no ? witnesses." Astonished at the
?ojmriess with which he seemed sub
mitting to what ,ihe regarded as inev
itable fate, I said to him : "Have
yoii no defence?"1 Is it possible that
? you "abandoned yoW comrades and
^eserted your colprs without qcy rea
son?" Ho replied : "There is a rea
son but'it will avail me nothing in a
military . cour,U". I sqid: "Perhaps
you are mistaken ; you are charged
with the highest crime known to mil
itary law, and" ? is your duty to make
known the causes that influenced your
actions.'' For the first time his man
ly form trembled and his blue eyes
?swam in tears. App.rpaohing the
president of j-hp court he presented a
letter saying a? he. did so: "There
General is what done it," I opened
the letter^and in a nipment ray eyes
filled with tears. It was passed from
on? td the other of the court until at
last all had seen it, and those stern
warriors, whp'had passed ;wilh .Stone
Wall Jackson through a hundred bqL
ties wept like children. Soon as I
sufficiently recovered my 'self posses
sion, I read tho letter as the defence
pf the--prisoner. It was'in these
WOruu-:
"My Dear Edward : ~I have al
ways been proud-ofyou^and since your
Connection with J,hejypn federate army
I have b?en prouder or you than ever
before. I wbuld not have you do'any
thing wrong fcfr the world ; but before
God, Edward, unless you comb home'
we must dip.l/ .Jyas.tr night, I was
aroused . by. litf-lc Eddie crying, ( I
called'and said : I'what's the matter,
Eddie?" and he said : "Ohvmamma,
I'm so hungry.." And Epcy, Edward
?your darli?'g tucy^slle never com
plain^ \ huX sbe; \sl growing,;thinner
and thinner every day. And before
God, Edward, unless-, .you come home
we must. die. %oyn Mary."
** Turning to the prisouer I asked :
"What d.id'yod 5o when you received
this ?" He replied : <"I made appltea-1
tion for a furlough and it was reject
ed ; again i made application and it
was rejected ;a ' third tube I made
application and \t ^yas rejected, and
that night I wandered backward and
forward'thinking of my hpme, with,
the mild eyes of lyucy looking at me,
and the Imrping words of Mary sink
ing into my brain ; I was no longer
the Confederate soldier, but the father
of Lucy and the husband of Mary,
and I' would have passed those lines
had every guri in' the battery fired at
me. I Went tp home ; Mary ran to
meet me; her'angel ar/qs embraced

. Every ofliccr of that court-martial
felt the force of prisoner's words.
"Helore tlicixi stood* (in a beatific vis?
ion, the cloquont pleader for a hus
band's a?d father's wrongs ; but they
had been trained by their leader,
Robert 13. Lee, 'to'tread the path of
duty, though the lightning flash
scorched the ground beneath tljeir
feet, and each in Iiis turn pronounced
tho verdict?guilty. Fortunately for
humanity, fortunately for the Conr
icderacy, the proceedings pf tho court
were reviewed by tbe commandipg
General, and upon the record was
written:
'IlEADQUAETEnS A. N. V.
The tynding of tho court is approv
ed. Tbe prisoner is pardoned and
will report to his company.
K. E. Lee, Gen.'
During the second batttlo of Cold
Harbor, when shot and shell were
falling 'like torrents from the'moun
tain cloud,' my attention was directed
to the fact that one of our batteries
was being silenced by the concentra
ted Ore of the enemy. I hurried, aptj
when I reached tho battery every
gun, with one exception, had been
dismantled, and by it stood a solitary
Confederate ioldier, with blood
BLreairfirfg' Trom his side. As he rec
ognized me, be elevated his voice and
said: "General, I have one shell
left. Tell me', have I saved the h?u
or of Mary and Lucy?" I raised my
hat. Once more a Confederate shell
went crashing through the ranks of
the enemy, and the hero sank by his
gun to rise no more."
Long Engagements.
There is a great deal to be said
against long engagements, particular
ly by the lady interested, as it is she
who must bear all the e-mail annoy
ances caused by gossiping friends.
"Why doesn't John marry Sarah?"
asks Mrs. Grundy. "They've been
engaged these five years. Evidently
he's in no hurry to giye up Ids freed
om." These and other remarks come
to Sarah's ears, and she finds her
position a trying oue. Indeed, many
of the difficulties and quarreln of lov
ers are the results of a protracted bp
trothal. The state of the engaged
can never bo thoroughly satisfactory
to them. They are kept in an exact
ing mood, which often breeds unT
founded jealousies, They enjoy the
bliss of. loving and being loved, yet
they are not quite sure it is going to
last. Somebody else may come along
and capture the heart they so highly
prize. Therefore, engaged people
arc apt to exchange their vows fre
quently, both for the pleasure of lis
tening to what they know and to
gain new assurances that they are
first in each other's affcclioqs and
immovably fixed there. This, period
of joy and trial may be extended for
a reasonable tjme-^-for months, and
even a year or two?but after that
there is the danger of a break in the
engagement which nay bo beyond
healing. It is best for all parties
concerned that? marriage,i should f6l
low an engagement without delay.
But if for any good reason an early
marriage is not practicable, engaged
people must be very patient with
each other. If they are loo exacting,
and so much preoccupied with their
sentiments thqt they neglect their
ordinary duties, they are apt to get
into a morbid state, which will result
in the estrangement. A long en
gagement, to reach a happy ending,
must flow on in a peaceful course.
Numerous quarrels will finally sepa
rate the most tender of lovers.
According to letters from tho Cape,
MCetcwoyo, the Zulu King, is as ruer.
cilcss as he is bloodthirsty. I have
known him to kill fifty women and
children to feed his golden eagles. As
brave as a lion, ho will fight until he,
dies, and if l\c on,ly sees n scratch on
one of his warrior's backs when they
return home he is pu^ to .death, as
Cetewayo thinks he must-have turned
from tho enemy ant} thus rpceived the
wound."
A ship lately took to Africa eight
hundred gallons of rum and one mis

In your issue of tho 14th instant
you bit the employees of the ?pqth j
Carolina Kail Road epme bard blows;
rating theta next to ,^s&lt water tars*'^
for swearingi and drinking. Nowi, ]
Messrs. Editors, I think-you dp 'an
injustice.. It is cOstqpiary.tpbolieve
that a fHat'' is.generally au abandon
ed character and not'fit ip^ ??Qibty'fit]
anything else, except his calling, all
of which I:believe to/bo true; but as
Jo the employees of the Soath Caro
lina Rail Road I must1, ihqterially dif
fer with you. They arov as a. class,
an honorable, industrious and busi
ness sev of men, connected with the
best families of our Slate.'-: Moinnvpr
thooe who. occupy, positions of trust,
have risen to them on their merits.
Als. to their, imteinperance I will
wagor that'the employees'of the road
ar? as tehiperate as any class of la
boring menih tho county, and I be
lieve, numbers, considered, mpre .sp
than will be found in tho newspaper
fraternity. ' How.often do you see a
drunken rail road man that would not
bp; drunk any where else had luv the,
moans? How often do you hear of a
drunken engineer or conductor duell
ing hie train or colliding it with
anpthor train? How often do you
know of qu employee of the South
Carolina Rail Road being dismissed
on account of their intemperance?
True it is that most rail road metiln
dulge to some extent, and there must
in reason be some excuse fqr them,
working in thpir various, capaeities
all times of day and night, and in all
kinds of weather. The same excuse
will apply to'your profession, who
frequently .work 'till the w/ee sma'
hours." Besides this, my dear sirs,
I cqu point' you to a greats njaqy of
ihq employees?from, trapk hands to
cphductorsT^-'whb arp,' total.abstainers
from the poison. Several of whom
reside in your town. I think you
should feel convinced that you have
done an injustice to thai nil road
class. Of course, Mr. 'Fisher, or any
other head of a business qs vast as
the South Carolina Rail Road, is not
expected to keep a habitual drunkard
in his service.
You "hit" 'em again about t'workr
ing awhile and fishing the balance of
the da}\" I can speak only person
ally concerning1 this. * But if the fish
wllj bite it is a temptation?enough
to tempt Mr. Fisher himself^rhe will
admit that.
I agree with j'ou that Mr. Fisher
shoqld observe, and caused to be ob
served, the Sabbath day. But this is
a question that will admit oi' a broad
argument. A great many contend
that it is right and a public necessity
to run the passenger trains on the
Sabbath. I am of a different opinion.

road men, as they have a haul enough

Female Masons.
Speaking of female Free Masons,
the Montpelier, Vt., Argus says:
"We see it stated that only two fe
males were ever initiated into a Free
Mason's lodge, one a Mrs, Aldsworth,
in North [Carolina, and-the ptber a
MrS. J. B) Babington, in'Kentucky.
We opine this is a mistake, for tradi
tion has it that during the war of
1812, or thereabouts, a Miss Hatha
way was initiated into ono of the
lodges on the northern frontier of
Vermont. The lodge was held in an
upper rooip., which was lathed, but
not plastered,. overhead, and Miss
Hathaway, with the curiosity pecu
liar to her sex, determined to find out
tho secrets of Masonry, and ao, pre
vious to the opening of the lodge,
quietly ascended into the attic of the
lodge-room to take advantage of the
crevices to listen to and observe the
scenes enacted below. Whether
frightened at the antics of the goat or
horrified by the hot grid-iron applica
tion, or not, we, are not informed,
but by some mishap she niisscd her
foothold and camo down through the
lathing in the midst of the ceremo
nies, to the utter nslppjs|iment and
dismay of the actors. Pccming dis
cretion tho better part of valor, they
thought it wise to shut lipp inout/h by
a solemn obligation, which she kept
to tho close of her life."

: A WORD FOR THE JUilJS,
OUR CITY COUNCIL 8thmni^f*T3JNATS
AND SWALLOWING CA&ELS.
?Editors ?'r?ngeburg Democrat;
Although claiming to be no theo
logian, I nevertheless propose to con
strue what some Of u8 belie ve the in
spired writer's'fnenning Ay &% when the
v/tffdB "straitiihg at a'gnatfanoVswal*
lowiijg'a'pamel" were made' to' con
stitute a' Jjljtf pf the Sacred Scrip
tures^ Ke'eviuentiy intended us to
.'understand that many . of ^js qp;nmit .
grave pffijnees which we regard na.too
trivial to merit pivine chaBtiseinpnt,
while tbe small sins of others were
seen through magnifying glasses, and
thought to bq much more heinous
than ouv.t own. With this preface
your-writer desires to call the atten
tion of the City Council fb what hp'
together with many otheray regard as
a great public nuisance. We are in
formed that long ago an edict was
promulgated, strictly forbidding all
swine alias hogB, the privilege of the
public streets of this siiy, simply bp
cause the animal was regarded as too
unsightly wo understand* and too
much filth was left in 11 pe wake of
their pcralnbulatioqs for tlje comfort
of the promenadcrs ot this city. In
fact perhaps Bomc of the^ people of
tjiis ciiy are afraid cf hogs in any
shaps, except with cut throats, clean
ed skins, and their flesh subjected tp
culjuary treatment. Then and only
then' it may bo that some of the over
modest people of this ciiij"would con
sent to come in contact with this
cloven-footed, but anti-cud- chewing
quadrupodl Why, my friends; your
Writer was under the impression that
the major portion of the population
of this city were gentile;: ; but anti
Bwincism seems to be 8j} pqpular,
as makes it almost a miracle that this
despised creature has not long ago,
been driven headlong down the kill
into the Red Sea, alias Edisto, and
choked, drowned, or exterminated in
some way. Yes, if ever neighbor
Ned ventures-' across tb.^corporate
limits of this city for tho purpose of
paying a social vist tp his brother, or
for looking after something for the
inner-self, he is at once arraigned be
fore Council of this city and made to
answer for such misdemeanor, and
should his master fail to appear, pay
any damages, growing- out of Ned's
intrusion, or would-be sociability, he
is put up at public auction and sold
away from master, friends and rela
tives fore vor. Poor Ned, bewaro
how and when you show yourself
upon the boulevards of this city.
Public opinion is against your enjoy
ing the privileges allowed p,lbcr quad
rupeds, while the constitution and
by-laws of this city explicitly say you
must keep your distance. But how
stands the.case with old Brindle, the
bighty favored, citizen of this city?
Go where she will, do as she willeth,
all is well, provided she finds her
home in time to QU the milk-maid's
morning and evening bucket. ? In the
interval every street, every alley, cv
ry yard, yes almost every garden are
at her disposal. Should the poor
countryman happen to visit this city,
and bring alcng semetbing for Bis.
hungry and tired horse, ef course,
old Brindle, must have her share,
aud should the stranger not perfectly
understand the habits and . customs
of the boovistic species of ihis^cify,
and leave his forage iu a non-comeat
uple place it is considered no breach
of the constitution and by-laws ofj
thin city should sho willfully and
forcibly break through and steal.
No, no! this intrusion is perfectly
constitutional, and no one dare mo
lest nor make her afiaid. If she
wills tc lay herself down uppn tho
side walks of th\r city, why, Of course,
tho morning and evening promenad
crs must pass around. Any attempt
ut molestation is an open violation of
tho constitution and by-Jaws, of this
city, und has been so aouoidared from
time immemorial. With these few
hints your writer begs most respect
fully to ask in behalf of his friend
and himself, that in-as-much as so
much legislation is going on all over
our wide republic looking to the
regulation of social equality among
the higher order of animals, that the
framers ami executors of tho consti
tution and by-laws of this city so leg
islate as to bring JScd and Brindle
more on an equality socially, and jf
need be, morally and politically, 8p
that both be kept alike within their
owner':.! enclosures, or allowed to
walk side by sido if they please,
where cro their inclinations lead
thorn. As for myself I prefer the
former arrangement, and sincerely
trust we echo the sentiments of the
supporters, executors and maintain
tniners of the constitution and by
laws of this city. Hippocrates.
A Good One.
Puripg the first year of the war,
says a Vermont paper, when change
was scarce and p.otne large firms were
issuing currency of their own, a far
mer went to a store in a neighboring
town and bought sptno goods, and
gavo the merchant a five dollar bill,
of which ho wanted seventy-five cents
back. The merchant counted it out
and handed it over to the farmer,
who/ looked at it a moment and in
quired ;
*?What is this?"
?'It's my currency," said the mer
chant.
"?Wall, taint good for anything
where I live," said tho farmer.
"Very well," sujd the merchant,
''keep it until you get a dollar'a
worth, and bring it to my store, and
I will give you a dollar for it."
Tho farmer pocketed the change
and departed. A few days after he
went to the same store, and bought
goods to the amount of one dollar,
and after paying over tho identical
seventy-five cents he took out a hand
ful of pumpkin seeds, and counted
out twenty-five of them and passed
them over to the merchant.
"Why," said the merchant, "what's
this?"
"Wal," said the farmer, "this is
iny currency, and when you get a. dol
lars' worth bring it to my place, and
I wjll give you a dollar for it."
Wofford College.
In pursuance of a call published in
the countv papers; a public meeting
was held in tho Couithousc on Wed-;
nesday 12th Afnroh, inst., to devise
ways and means for putting the buil
dings of Woflord College in thorough
repair for next Commencement, the
25th Anniversary of the Institution.
On motion of Mnj. D. R. Duncan,
Maj. John Karle Bomar was elected
Chairman and T. Stobo Fqrrp.w, Sec.
retary.
The Chairman explained the object
of the meeting and short speeches
were made by Prof. W. VV"! puncan,
J. B. Cleveland, Esq., and Capt. J.
j W. Carlisle, urging the flecessity of
I the repairs and adyocating subscrip
tions for that purpose. After which
subscriptions were called fo,v and
8Q05. subscribed by those present at
the meeting.
Mr. W. K. Blak,e moved that a
committee of five be appointed to
wait on the pitizens of the towu and
solicit subscriptions, which was
adopted. The Chair appointed on
said committee, Messrs. W. K. Blake,
A. A. Foster, Charles Petty, J. A.
Hcnneman, and W. I. Harris.
On motion of Dr. R. M. Smith, the
Chair was authorized to appoint
Committees of threo in each township
in the county to solicit subscriptions.
?Spurtanburg Herald.
Whipping Post,
The whipping poet ib said to hqvo
worked' well in Virginia. Cases of
petty larceny and the criminal
charges of the State have sensibly
fallen otf since itq adoption, and the
Senate stands by the lash by a de
cided1- KMjprity, on a motion to repeal
the law sanctioning its use. A colony
p,f 900 negroes working ?n a Pender
county, N, C, quarry; have volunta
rily adopted the whippingpost to
suppress thieving among tbemaejves.
The jury of their own choice finds tfr&
guilty out every time, and the plan
seems to be a success in keeping
things straight. Missouri and several
other States arc now considering the
advisability of employing the same
pieaus to punish the petty thieves
and other scamps who fear no penalty
as much, and just now the tide seems
to set toward the whipping post as
more ed'eei'iyc with petty criminals
than confuu'inent or fines.
Tho whipping post, as a punish
ment for potty offences., is, demanded
by some of t^hp, Texas papers. One
case- is mentioned in which a negro
was indicted for stealing a box of
sardines, valued at fifteen cents. It
cost tho county ono thousand dollars
to send him to tho penitentiary.
Such costly punishments are a little
too much for tho Texans and they
think a liberal application of the lash
would control these potty criminals.
Wo agree with Texas, papers.

Editors Orangeburg Democrat:^ u^y
Allow rao to make a littlo correc

in regard to Dr, JL J. Avinger, of
Avinger, Texas. lie loft the town
of Orangeburg on the morning of the
22nd of January, 1855, and-arrived
in Texas and located for the practice
of medicine on the 8th of February,;
1855, in Cnss County. Two years
alterward he returned to South Caro?;
Una and married Miss Martha Hook

1857. A short time after his return,
to Texas, he bought a tract of unim
proved laud, about ? one and a half
miles from where he; first icoaWsd.
He improved it in 1858 and moved
on it, and is liying on the same place

lime, . He practiced medicine for
seventeen years, in the mean time
commenced to merchandise, and buy
ing up small and well improved farms,
in all of which lie was very fortunate

fortune around him. In 1872 he was
the nominee of the Democratic party
in the. 8th Senatorial distrlcty-com**
posed of Marion, Cass, and Bqwje
counties, for State Senator, J^b that
time tho State was in the dutches of

Revising the English, Bible.
The revision of the English (King
James') Bible, now iu the tenth year
of its progress, has been termed "the
great work of the century"?whether
appropriate or not remains to bp seen.
Two years more will be required to.
finish the task, when the new version
will be submitted to the world and he
subjected to criticism. From the be
ginning, in 1870, the English Churcb
and the great universities gavp their
ripest scholars to the task,.and the
American talent, co-operating with
them, was selected with equal care.
The commission have .worked with,
entire harmony, and the proposed
changes arc only adopted after a full
consultation, and a substantially
unanimous agreement. The members
have pledged their honor to reveal no
part to the public until the whole
work is completed and published.
German scholars are at tho same (ime
at work upon the revision of Luther's
Bible, and the Qcrniqn and English
revisers arc in complete accord. But
great as the authority is with which
the revised work will bo placed before
the world, it would be assuming too

without question. There arc a good,
