Thi Baptist Cuur'.cr ^ a oha-ige j
in our p>liiic*l ineihuds. Wha' sug-j
g.jsts the change U ihi di.?>rde. lv con- j
venlion ht*M in Kentucky. "Tnis j
convention method of n initialing'
officers has beea discontinued in some
States,'' s*ys our contstnp'rarv, ila?d
if tho Kentucky plan i? tu imitated by j
other State.*, the sooner ihi^ method is !
disc >utinnei everywhere the be for for |
the morals of the people. N > method,!
so far trieJ, is entirely Mtisfacfory." J
"The primary plan of i;o:*tinatin*r ii i
an improvement in some respe -t-," as |
the Courier very properly obsetvep, j
ubnt as coDdacied iu this S-a e it is
llIlsaiKiaciury asiu nuus gica ?
veniPncc to the candidates, as we-1 as
discomfort aud expinse." Th? Courier
hits the real evil when it suggests:
"What the country nerds is
fewer elections, while the primary j
plan has iu fact double the number" j
Our contemporary is inclined to think
that there ouaht to be uo nominations.
4<A reform iu the methods oi nomiinaling
officers is needed, ami it i9
beginning to look as if there oi.ght to
* ' * - > J- .Ua
F)e no nomiuauou?, ?nu leave iuc
general election open for a free for-all
?fi^ht to any number of candidates.
Then there would be only one e'ecuon;
and no disgraceful scenes in a moblike
convention." It is well that oar
esteemed contemporary did not make
this snggcstioii several years ago. It
would have been denounced as a bolter,
and very proDaoiy wouia nave uecu
called "a rad'.cal sh^et" 2nd other opprobrium
hames. Cut there is a great
de*l of force in what the Courier
s?_v=, and u is well that the c >nditions
now are sash that the "n form is onr
political rauihods" can be discussed
without any bitterness. The principal
obj c ion to going straight to the gen..^oi
a. frpp-for-all fhht" is
that it would abrogate the "mvjoritv
rn!e,"ooeof the best features of the
primary Svstern being that the nominee
for any particular office must
receive a in>*j ?r:ty of the vote-* cast for
that offi:e. Then aft*T all, would we
get rid of all the e?i!s of iheprimrry
system suggested by odr contemporary,
sach as the great expense? Of
oursa, there would be no law compelling
the cmdidate to canvass the
State, but we venture to ?ay that they
wonlddoit. If one did it, all would
fscl bound to see tlie people. Oar contempory
must not forget that it wa?
said a few years ago in every county
in the State that it was a great privi'
lege iui wtc ivwn. iuv V?
didate in the eye," and it wa3 asserted
that the denial of the great right wa3
one of the reasons given for the sweeping
assertion that South Caroliua, np
to lhat lime, had never had a Republican
form of government,
Nor do we think the general election
would remedy the complaint made by I
the Courier tha*, by the primary s)fetem,
"it trequently happens that the
best men are not nominated." This is i
a matter left entirely with the voters,
and we can see no reason why the j
same voters would exerci=e any more j
judgment in a general election than in j
the primary.
After all, the remedy h with the
voter. Raise the standard of the
voter; instil! h*m with higher notions
of citizenship, a*d the reform will!
The man or woman who wants a
\ free advertisement is a familiar acquaintance
in every newspaper offi;e.
We observe that some of oar contem
poraries are writing about this familiar
acquaintance, and some of tbem
are advocating that *'tbe acquaintance
should be cur," aud are discussing the
best way to d) it and to what extent

th-^ effrontery to suggest that tue paper i

Mr. Editor: As per your request, I :
hand the .following ariicle. The personal
remiD'.scenses are such as I have
! /vatfrnm talk nf the older mem
bers of the family and the political
incidents of the Regulator are by Prof,
fi. cleans Davis.
T. W. Woodward.
The fiiSt American ancestor of "the
Regulator" came from England wiih
George Calvert, Baron of Baltimore,
about 1G31, and settled near Aunapolis,
i Md. It was here that Thomas, the
father of the llegalator, was born and |
raised. By his first wife, whose
maiden name I do not know, he bad
several children. After her death he
went to Fairfax County, Ya.. and
married Elizabeth Simpson, the descendant
of k Scotch lainilv. Thomas
Woodward a^d Elizabeth Simpson
had one son who wa? the Regulator.
Heiuruiag to Maryland to bring ta
Fairfax the children of the first marriage,
he died before accomplishing his
purpose and the children remained in
Maryland, leaving many descendants
who reside in thai State. After the
death of Thomas Woodward, his
widow married William Robertson
j and reared tnree suns, wiuiam, ouau
and Henry, and several daughters,
j 5ome of ;hese children moved in
after years to Dinwiddle County, Ya.;
and others to North Carolina.
| (Note. The earliest mention of the
Woodward family was about the year
1660, when they were wards of the
j wood, or keepers of the forest for
! William the Conqueror who "loved
j the tall deer as if he were their father."
i Their names as was usual in many
! cases indicated their occupation.)
In a series of letters from General
Thomas Simpson Woodward, a
| grandson of Wheeling, Winn Parish,
La., to J. J. Hooper, autnor 01 oimon
Suggs and editor of the Montgomery
Advertiser iu 1S57. he says, speaking
of the Regulator! "iliat he showed
i:i early life an inclination to become
; a soldier, and was in the French war,
oeiug a part of the time with George
Washington, who was then a Major
j or Colonel. He was a captain in the
service, and much older than Washington.
From what I learn from
Parson "Weems and others, the old
man was regarded as a good fighter."
At an early a?e Thomas, the Regulator,
married Jemima Collins, and had
by bcr four daughters and two sons.
The sons bore the names of John and
' William. Tfee daughters married
Nelson, Raiford, Rabb, Andersou.
While in servicc he lost bis wife, and
after coming to South Carolina he be'
came acquainted with the Widow May,
who had Indian blood in her veins.
I rreSSlDg ms SllU, SUtf aweyteu liiui
i and tbev were married. Of this
j union there were three sons and three
daughters. After this marriage, he
brought home in Virginia his motner
and three half brothers, "William, John
and IJenrv Robertson. William was
the father of Major Bsnoni .Robertson,

whf.rn I have frequently met on bis

Mill Creek. The mother of Thomas
Woodward and the Robertsons lived
to be 114 years old.
Capt. Woodward, it 6eeme, came to
South Carolina prior to 1760, a date
sometimes assigned to his coming, for
there is on record in the office of the
Secretary of Stat9 a grant of land of
200 acres da^ed 12th April. 1758.
(Vol. 6, page 390.) There were other
grants in Craven County, viz , '50
acres on Cedar Creek, (vol. 7, page
2S1,) on 12th January, 17G3, 100 acres
on Wateree Rivr> and Creek, on 14th

of Broad River, on Cedar Creek, and
between 1766 and 1774, four tracts
embracing COO acres in Craven County,
(one on Mill Creek.) Mo3t of these
tracts were bounded by vacant lands,
showing that trie chantry at that time
was sparsely settled. Tradition has
it that he cams when South Carolina
called on Virginia aud North Carolina
for assistance against the Cherokes
Indians. Fairfield is described at this
time as being one ot the most charming
aud fertile districts in the State,
and its settlers were chiefly devoted

After hostilities had ceased, and the
people bad returned to tbeir homes,
many dishonest men were banded together
for U13 purpose of stealing and
carrjing away such of tli3 slock as
they could lay hands on. As there
was no court nearer than Charleston,!
and but one provosr, or sheriff for the
v. .io!o colony, the organization of a
body of regulators became a necessity,
as i he Ku K!nx Klan was a necessity
in the South after the war of secession.
It might be supposed that from his
character and prominence Capt. Woodward
would take the lead on this
work of suppressing robbery and outlawry.

Another name destined to become '
p-eminent in regulator records was x
that of Edward McGraw, whose son,
the lisv. Marshall McGraw, died some c
years ago, a nonegenarian. There ^
were two El wards, probably father
aud son and one attaches the designa- I
tion junior to his name. E tward McGraw
had secured 200 acres of land

Graw owned places *n Morris' Creek
as early as June 25, 175S, while Edward
McGraw, Jr., (who was probablv
the Regulator) secured grants for
250 acres in 1770. These holdings do
not neee sarily include all lands owned,
for they cowpri-e only original <;: a:its.
William and John Fraser, or Fraz:er,
or Frashor, ow;;ed places on B;oad
River as appears from I he book of
plats and also the council record*.
Wiliiam Scott owned, apparently, unless
there were several persons of that
i:arar, a large number of tracls, chidly
along tbe Wateree and oantee. In
the absfuce of definite location in the
nairative, tbe dealings of the princi- j
pal actors in the regulation may be
guessed approximately.
A war with the 1'berokees be^an in
1757 and lasted till 1761 when the
tre?g:hof the C.u.erokees was almost
totallv deitrojed, and they bad to
6tie for peace. This fact induced
another wave of immigration; but the
settlers were not all deiirab.'e persons.
There were inrsc thieves, Indian
traders, drunkards and immoral mwi
who made the back countrv a reproach.
Unable to stamp these offenders out
by means of the regular channels of
justice, since there was but one court
in Charleston for tbe whole province,
tbe law abiding men of thi back
country or?ran!z-?d a "regulator'' for
the purpose of bringing miserein's to
jtisilce The movement wa? widefc[jiead.
In North Carolina, "as early
as 1766, the people began to resist exco.ssive
taxation, these disturbance,
beginning in Granville, extended into
Oiansjeaud Anson counties." Tbese
men seemed to have called themselves
"iha mob" nntil April 4, 17t>3, t&ey
changed it lo that of "regulator*."
They rose in arms against the y<,v..-rnme-it
but Gov. Tryon whipped them
at A'amiuce. Bridge, killed several
hundred and tried and hanged some
more. (T? "fir's History of the
Revolution i.i o. o.) Many of these
regulators afterwards became Tories,
having bad encuzh of resistance to the
king's officers.
I if 1732 John Crawford, Owen
David, William Summer and six
others on Pedee River had petitioned
for a division of Craven County and
the establishment of a courthouse in
the upper portion in order to bring to
justice miscreants of all kinds who
were living in flagrant vice all along
it - t 3 . . mi? Li_
Lne Doraer. xae assemo;y lecuxumended
some improvements, and the
sstablishment of a court at Georgetown
; but with the exception of the
appointment of additional trial justices
for ihe back districts nothing was
lone for relief. (Gregg's history of
ibe Cberaws, 131 et seq.) The records
ire silent regarding these matters for
ibout fifteen years, but discomfort
ppas increasing and the settlers deermined
no longer to submit.
Along here Gregg's history of tbe
jiu ^neraws is au im.eieau.uj; guiuc,
toid it we gather that in tbe Gazette
>f May 26, 1767, a portion of a letter
ivritten at Pine Tree or Camden, and
rearing date Alay 14, was published,
.vhich'said that "on the 6th in3tant a
uunber of armed men being in pur u't
of horie stealers, robbers, &c,
iiscovered a parcel of them in camp
)n Broad Eiver, where an engagement
msued, and the thieves were put to
light, and though none of them were
aken it is reasonable to suppose from
he quantity of blood on the ground
hat some of them were killed." They
eft behind them ten horses, tbirteeu
addles, sow? gun?, &e. Gregg, p,
