From the Working Christian,

at Fellowaian Church, Edgefield Couu
?,(at )bh} Janwaljiof Dr. Thomas
ike. Iii toe death of Dr. Lake, a
wide circle ot friends, and the com
munity in.the midst of which he had
spent a lapg and useful life, have ex
in$t cj^saj^rn^c.'who are justly ap
preciated only upon a near approach
and continued acquaintance. HisJ
native' modesty and -repugnance; tc|j
every thing J ike pretentiousness, caus
ed him to stand back from positions
which he would have filled and adorn
ed ; hence, he was less known. >tx) t?be^
denomination in.{fce? ?>$atf, than ne
ojight to fca^f*.' fceen, as one of our
most valuable brethren. In the com
munity where his. lot was cast, the
solid worth of his character carried
him, notwithstanding his ^ndej-estj-^
mate of himsQlf, j ntq -positions which
?clearly betokened the general confi
dence in the soundness of his judg
ment, in the kindliness of his nature,
and in the purity of his eljar.aQt.er.jai
a man thoroughly conscientious ana
just. .
In a practice of medicine continu
ed through a long course of years, he
gained the reputation of a skillful
physician ; his agriculture .ejBfrjp-jj
euee placed him among our most suc
cessful farmers ; his general economy
and prudence enabled him to under
go the crash which the war brought
upon our people without the p rostra-/
tion in which so many have sunk
down ; yet, perhaps, in his case, and
that of many other old men, the new
cares and anxieties incident to our
changed condition, and the perpetua
ted sense of wrong inflicted by an
unjust war, followed by consequences
which have made the name of liberty
a mockery to Southam white men,
shortened a life that might have been
continued for yeais. Ile had com
pleted his sixty-fifth year in March
last. "
.Although in general society Dr.
Lako was reticent, yet in intercourse
with intimate friends he was freely
communicative ; then it was-that the
real cast Of his mind became' appa
rent. He was inquisitive about causes,
often in hi-own way classifying facts,
and whether the yon Versalien related
to'diseases and their 'remedies,! or to
m >r . general physical laws, or the
phenomena of mind, or tue beauties'
of composition, his companion could
i : o t but be struck with the originality
and independence of his niiud. Along
willi this was blended a racy humor,
which those who saw him only in
public did not suspect. I remember
a conversation in which he cited, as
an illustration ?d' his constitutional
indifference to appearance in dress/
an incident which once occurred with
him on a jaunt io Augusta. He had
fallen iu 'on the road with a newly'
fledged medical graduate whose status
was sufficiently advertised by his
bright, professional saddle-bags. Con
versation sprang up between them
which naturally enough took a medi
cal direction. The young doctor hav
ing advanced some opinions which
the elder deemed questionable, ob
jection was made, and this was an
swered by assertions, and when the
force of these was denied, " Sir," said
the young iEsculapian, ,;I am a phy
sician !" ." And what did you say to
him;3>r??'- "Why, I just went for
what he took me to be, and let him
enjoy his ignorance."
To those who knew hita in the
most intimate intercourse, ?q whom
he could unbosom himself, it ,was a
great treat to witness the zest Wi tn
which he w?u?a descant upon the
true aud the beautiful. Fine thoughts,
and--nob1 ? a mi temi er. sentiments;--a* |
expressed by our. English cjassical
poete,, would, be pited ,by-hi'mj not
tmirequently with an' apofogy, (sug
gested by his characteristic modesty,
for making a quotation. The honor
of the Saviour's name lay very near
his heart; he felt deeply the incon
sistencies of professors of religion,
and he honored those that-feared the
Lord. " * v" ? ?
He served the Edgefiehi Associa
tion for many yea^s tur ?l'pj?rk, and
was one of a noble band of brethren
who formed tha Abbeville Associa
tion-the youngest, and, in proportion
to its numbers, the most emcienfr^bf |
.our Associational bodies. The com
mittee on the organization of this
Association performed their labors in
his hospitable mansion, and his pen
furnished the first Circular Letter. *

Judge Meltoni
Itj was more than, intimated at the
late term of our Circuit Court, that
therewith terminated our official re
stions with the .-gen tl email who/ for .
nearly, ^wo y^ears,, has wielded^the im-.
{?ortanI powers over the lives,' liber
ies and fortunes of the people, en
trusted to the Circuit Judge. In
these days of degeneracy, when the
vocabulary of censure is .exhausted in
the vain attempt to express the pub
lic sense of wrong and outrage under
the infliction of incompetent and cor
rupt officials of every grade, it. is a
pleasure'te.be; able to write a hearty
" well'doW' 'of ?any-officer to whom
it is justly due.
We think we*?xpresB thesentiment
of the people and the Bar,. when we
say, that the official career of Judge
Melton b?afi'be?ri, marked by, a rare
abilityMAgmtyj j diligence- and cour
tesy, which renders it a matter of
profound regret that the limited ten
ure and insufficient emoluments of the'
position, rendered other posts more
attractive to one possessing those high
qualifications fer the judicial office
which are Judge Melton's.
In the new field which he seeks to
enter, should he succeed, Judge Mel
ton will have an opportunity of de
monstrating the integrity of his pur
poses andhiseminentabilities. Should
he solve the intricate problem of State
craft in its involved, obscure and
anomalous'condition in South Caroli
na, and rescue the State from the foul
and seething sea of corruption in
which she is now steeped, he wi H
condone his political offenses and en
title himself to the lasting gratitude
of''bfe'riebple; "We-tlonfess w"e are not !
hopeful of this happy consummation. .

-It h??te beerrmentioned by telegraph
that the celebrated racer, Harry Bas
sett, the. rival of Longfellow, was
beaten at Prospect Park, Nev/ York,
on Saturday, by. Monarchist, owned
by M. H. Sanford. . Thi? was a most
unexpected result, as tho odds were
extravagantly iq favor, of Bassett.
The race was a^ dash 'o? three ' miles,
and very exciting1, (n 'drawing for
places Monarchist-had the inside,:bnt
Bassett got the 'best of The start? by, a.
full length. At th?quarter pole ?hey
were head and bead, but Bassett soon
got the lea'd,'and coming up the
atretch they seemed to move almost
with the speed of the wind. The
faster Bassett ran the closer Mon
archist seemed to hang to him,. and
at the finish of the first mile, which,
was run in 1 Ab, Bassett only Jed
three-quarters of a length.' The nett
mife was almost a repetition of the
first, but entering the stretch Mon
archist was still only a neck behind
the favorite, and when .again. they_|
came up the stretch both were going
more slowly, and they passed the
stand,having run ?the two miles in
3 :37?. As they passed the stand the
general opinion was that Monarchist
was running the fastest, and that if
he only stuck to his Work j he 'taould
win. ' Bassett, however, kept the ?ead
until'well iflto th? straight, when the
whip was applied tp Monarchist, and
he came up ?ve? with Baes?tt, amidst
the greatest excitement. Monarchist
came home the winner by two lengths,

while Bassett cantered away to his.

one of the greatest excitement, all

shouting themselves hoarse.
THE OLD HORSE.-The old horse, re .
quires more lime to eat his meals and rest ; i
his nerves. Of all animals'thc old ho'rso
is thc worst abused. Although he has
been our most faithful and protitablo ser
vant, vet in his old age the hum is applied .
lo force out his youthful vigor. The older j |
he grows thc more he feels the lash. He ? \
is often turned out of doors to give place
to thc colt?. Too often the neglect and
abuse he is subjected to, because- hr. is a
little old, results in a greater loss than is
made up in Ibo care for the young horse.

A Grenada Bluebeard.
Half a century ago, a Jewish merchant,
isaac Pedro Gome,, lived at Grenada,
Spain, in a house built at the base of a
ofty rock. He devoted himself to marry
ng and making money, and succeeded so
,voll in both that he amassed a large for
aine, and took unto himself seven wive^/j
jot polygamously but in succession, as
mc after tho other was transferred from
lis arms to thc grave. It was his habit;
;o bury his spouses atnig?tand unattend
Jd. lt was probably this fact that caused
?he suspicions that finally drove him from
r,he city. He married ' again twice^ and,
finally, havina buried his'" niiie wives, he
?ras buried himself at Vera Cruz,"in 1?5?X , f
?fi8:?ons are said, to-be iioW;.livir^'Juij,'
Aanericu. His story had j well-nigh ? beend '
ungotten in-Grenada^ wheiva few . weeks
since, some workmen, employed in . repair -fi
UK;' his old house, discovered a subterranean :
passage, 135 a ti long by 7* feet wide; at | J
tho end of which woijo poyen ifemale skele- : i
tons. Meilical experta say that they must 1
have all been, placed .there during the j J
modern Bljcbeard'slife. Grenada is proper- . I
