The Pioneer Church at Batesville.
The new Methodist Church at Bates
ville was dedicated on Sunday last. This
pioneer Church, in a Railroad village
which seems destined to become soon a
very importaafetown, is a handsome
wooden building, slandingin a beautiful
(Trove of young oaks about 300 yards
North of the Railroad. It is built pre
cisely upon the plan of the Harmony
Church, which many of our readers
know, bht is several feet larger either
way, and much more handsomely finish
ed and furnished. A Baptist Church
much after the same style, but considera
bly smaller, and standing on the same
side of the Railroad, though much near
er to it, is now being finished, and will
probably be dedicated before the spring
shall have passed. Two new and libe
rally-devised Churches in a village
scarcely four years old, is a fact which
speaks volumes for the enterprise, and.
what is far better, the moral tone and
native refinement of the people of that
village and vicinity !
.The day from early dawn, was singu
larly inclement, the rain pouring in tor
rents. Consequently, the coneregation,
instead of mounting up to a full thou
sand, as would probably have been the
case bad the weather been good, was
composed mainly of th e neighboring citi
zens and their families. Such earnest
and prominent Methodists, however,
as H. T. Wright, Esq., and Major Abram
Jones-and even the ladies of their
households-bad braved wind and weath
er, and were present to evince their in
terest in the occasion and their honor for
the cause. Bishop Wightman-the guest
of John H. Huiet, Esq.,-conducted the
dedication and preached the sermon, the
Church being formally presented to the
Bishop by the Rev Mr. Gatllu, the
preacher of the Leesville Circuit. No
ecclesiastical dignitary in America ls
more honored than Bishop Wightman
! and certainly none ia more zealous or
more useful. Honored for his piety, his
eminent mental ability, his eminent so
cial graces ! The Bishop's text was, " But
we preach Christ crucified," 1st Chap.
1st. Corinthians, 23rd verse, into which
five words, as he remarked, is packed
a world of intense force and meaning.
I To do justice to Bishop Wiglitman's ser
mon, in such a synopsis as we would
like to make, would require more space
Ithan is at our disposal this week. Suf
fice it to say that his discourse was in
every way worthy of his fame, abound
ing towards its close in facts, statistics,
.reminiscences, and pictures of travel,
wonderful to hear.
After the sermon and dedication, the
Holy Sacrament of the Lord's Supper
was administered by Bishop Wightman,
assisted by the Rev. Mr. Gatlin. And
with this, the solemn and interesting
ceremonies of the day were closed.
The number of communicants of this
Church is, if we are not misinformed,
between thirty and forty. The Commu
nion service, of silver, and of striking
beau'y, is, we were told, the gift of
Major Meetze, of Lexington.
Notes of a Slip-Sloppy Railroad Jaunt.
We start for the Batesville dedication
in torrents of rair ?.ad spend a night
and day amid the abounding hospitality
of Mr. and Mrs H. T. Wright. Mr.
Wright has one cf the most beautiful
homes and best regulated plantations in
our District, and his farming system is
even more admirable perhaps than Col.
Huiet's, as described by Mr. Fletcher.
At Johnston's by 8 oclock Sunday
morning, and, like " Noah'sweary dove"
find not a'dry spot for a foot-hold. John
ston's wants ditching and draining. No
doubt it will be done. We run out into
an old field, through a cross street (John
ston's is actually getting cross streets 1)
to see the new Academy. It will be a
large and handsome building, and is fine
The train stops at Ward's, and Capt.
Clinton Ward comes aboard. He soon
draws out a long foolscap roll, and sub
mits it to our inspection. It is a sub
scription list for a new Church at Spann's.
He is going to Batesville. to push the
matter. When the day ends he has on
his list some 31500. With this they will
begin. The ?1000 more, required, will
doubtless be found. Capt. Ward and
Wm. J. Ready. Esq., are the leaders in
this enterprise. All honor to thom !
We'draw up at Ridge Spring in a roar
ing: flood, und wo notice the superiority
of its location over both Johnston's and
Batesville. Ridge Spring stands high
and dry above the waters, and is, we be
lieve verily, the most beautiful spot for
a town in all the South. Mr. Wm, Mer
ritts new residence is a stately family
mansion, worthy of the age and times.
The old-fashioned mansion of the mother
of the Watsons, now Owned by Mr. Rob
ert B Watson, is transformed into a yel
low villa of striking beauty. The Epis
copal Church is to be located near tho
residence of Mr. Sumpter Boatwright
The lumber, if we mistake not, ls already
being hauled to the spot.
And next, at Batesville, whore the wa
ters stand upon the earth as the}' do at
at Johnston's. But no "weary doves"
here ! Batesville is on the watch. Our
old friends, John Huiet and Jack Bates,
have warmth and hospitality for all.
Their halls and parlors remind one of a
city reception. And apropos, Mr. F?ui?t
has built up the model home on the C. C. <fc
A. R. R.-A large cottage ot great ele
gance and beauty, with everything about
it charmingly en mite. Letwhoever de
signs building a new house, go first to
Batesville and look at John Huiet's.
Batesville grows rapidly. It has six
quite large and important mercantile
establishments, to say nothiug of sundry
small shops. Two Churches! Privato
residences going up on every hand
among them one for Dr. Edwiu Strother.
A drug store-that of our geniul and pop
lar friend Dr. Shelton Fox. And many
other points worth mentioning, which
we could not well study on Sundaj*.
Batesville, like Johnston's, is great in
the grocery, cotton, and planter supply
ing business. Greater-so the Batesville
people say. From all we see and hear,
money is to be made-and is being made
at Batesville !
A happy and hearty dinner with our
oldest friend in the world, Louis W.
Youngblood, and then homewards!- In
.the Norris house, next to Mr. Young
blood's, now live Mr. George Bell and
his accomplished daughters. What will
Dry Creek do without the Bells ? We
forget, however, that railroads annihi
late time and space.
Next, a night under the hospitable roof
of Col. Bacon, In whose stables are to be
seen some of the finest blooded horses in
the world. And where one meets with'
Alderney cows, and Maltese cats, and
new fangled dogs, and other odd qu?d- j
rupeds that look like they had escaped
from a traveling menagerie.
And lastly a meeting with our friend,
Mr. D. T. Vaughn, who is an enthusias

was bound to be the place.along the route
of the C. C. <fc A. R. R.-and (a new
thing, and startling!) th it soon a Rail

On the first day of the session Col. D.
Wyatt Aiken delivered an interesting
address on Stock-Raising, urging the
planters of the South to combine the
raising of sheep with the usual pursuits.
On the second day the same gentleman
delivered an address on the advantages
to agriculturalists of the order of the
Patrons of Husbandry, which produced
a marked effect on the Convention.

I can not think of charging her for it ;
that would be too bad, however infallible
the remedy. I have no hesitation what

To the Editor of thc Daily Union:
In the Edgcricid Advertiser ot the 12th
instant, a card appeared from a person
who signed himself a " Member of the
Bar," but as to thc particular bar ha
alludes to, wo are unable to conjecture.
Thi6 person in his card seeks to nut us
in a false position before the public.
Therofore, Mr. Editor, we desire to reply
in substance to the curd of thc member
aforesaid. In the first place wo are per
fectly ready and willing to submit to an
investigation relative to any transactions
of ours in soliciting.tho appointment of
our present county treasurer, and if thc
"Member of tho Bar," the pretended

that wo are afraid of any reply ho can or
may choose to make, we desiro emphati
cally to inform bini that he is decidedly
mistaken, ?md so far us regards his all?
sion to the difference between us, we
would say that wo are wiUing to be

" Member of the Bar," ho assorts that
we had certain fraudulent school checks
or claims cashed, knowing at the time
they were presented foi liquidation that
they were forged. Now, Mr. Editor, in
reply, we assert thal; the porson aforesaid,
when he makes this statement, makes
onethat possesses not theslightest founda
tion of truth, and we sincerely believe
that he is awaro of that fact ; and we are
not much surprised, when we come to

and shall fear no danger.
But, Mr. Editor, os we have already
taken up too much of your valuable
space in replying to the blackmailing

desire, in conclusion, to say only this,
that we are men, and personally respon

The '^.Colored Senator and Represen
tative" have again thrown their djrty
card in the Daily Union, of February
15th ; and, although the task of Replying
to it is extremely distasteful anil fisgnst
ingto moj ye^ 'casting ?sidb fastidious
ness, in the cause or" puojjj justice and
morality, I wUl condescend to n'otic? ifc
in your present issu?.
These colored youths-jjreiend to be Ig
norant of the person writing over the
signature of " A Member of the Bar,''
and of the particular bar he alludes to.
and allege that "he seeks to put them in
a false position before the public.'* Here
they both lie in the beginning of their
so-called defenc?,'. and as it wiRTbe made
evident, the lie contin?es to tne end of
the. chapter. They .know full waU.who
he is, and will have cause to know him
better before he is done with. them.
They impudently assert that they are
"ready and willing" to submit to inves
tigation, any-.of .their transactions in
soliciting the appointment of the present
County Treasurer; and are.willing to
be weighed in the balance with;him O' A
member of theBar,") atany time. These
two men do not deny the. charge that
they made persistent and annoying apr
plications to the Executive, to appoint
the'present incumbent to the office of
County Treasurer, when they well knew
that charges of felony were preferred
against him; but assert, that they are
ready' to submit their transactions in
this regard to investigation. Now ay the
Courts of law, if we had any, do not in
vestigate such a charge, and as the pub
lic is the only tribunal before which they
could be properly cited to appear and
answer, their failure to deny explicitly
in their card, the charge made against
them, allows judgment by default; and
according to the- real expounder Of Coke
and Blackstone, is equi valent to an admis
sion of their guilt Wo advise these
colored Solons to leave Coke and Black
stone alone, for the " Colored Represen
tative" once found, to his mortification,,
that Blackstone was too hard for his in
In regard to their denial of the posses
sion of fraudulent School Checks, or
claims, and having them cashed, know
ing that they were fraudulent or forged,
the testimony of some of the leading
men of their own party supports the
charge, which however is now establish
ed beyond a doubt, by the fact that one
of these colored youths (certainly the
"Colored Representative") was pne of
the Trustees of Pickens School District,
for Edgefield County, during the year
1872, and has been appointed for 1873.
That the law requires all. teachers of
Schools, to make monthly reports, <fec.,
before the can receive drafts on the Coun
ty Treasury for payment-that such
drafts must be drawn by the Board of
School Trustees, and countersigned by
thf School Commissioners before they;
can be legal drafts-that this "Colored'
Representative" and Trustee as aforesaid,
knowing the law, (or supposed to know
it, for ignorance is no excuse, either for
crimes or misdemeanors,) and knowing
also that the School Checks were not
issued according to the provisions of Sec.
12, Genl. Stat. p. 232, bought up, shaved,
and discounted at a heavy discount, a
large number of these illegal checks, and
had them cashed by thc accommodating
and very complaisant Ex-Treasurer, at
the mandate of his master, a colored State
official at Columbia.
Now mark the position of this impu
dent rascal, the "Colored Representa
tive," whom wo believe thc worst of tho
two, from his constitutional love of
money. As one of the Board of School
Trustees for Pickens School District,
which Board alone had the power to issue
pay certificates, this fellow "buys up,
discounts, and shaves,'" a large number
of bogus school pay certificates, drawn
by the School Commissioner alone on tho
County Treasurer, and has them cashed.
Was '.e not required ny law to know that
they were illegal, occupying as he diu
the position of Trustee ? And if ho did
not know it, does itaffect his criminality ?
Now observe what the law says in regard
to School Trusrtees, and other officials,
dabbling in pay certificates, and other
orders, on School funds, or Juror's Cer
" It is hereby declared to be unlawful
for any County Treasurer, County Audi
tor, County School Commissioner, or
School Trustee to buy, discount, or shave,
directly or indirectly, orbe in anyway
interested in any Teacher's pay certifi
cates, or other order on School 'funds or
Juror's certificates.''-Sec. 1.
" That if any of the officers aforesaid,
shall violate the provisions of Sec. 1., of
this Act, ho shall oe deemed to be guilty
of a misdemeanor, and on conviction
thereof, shall pay a line of not loss than
S'IOO. nor moro than ?2000. ?.te.,-and shall
bo imprisoned at the discretion of the
Court, or either, or both."-Sec. 2, A. A.
1872, p. 153.
? Here now the "colored Representa
tive," not daring to deny that he is
amenable to the provisions of the above
mentioned Act, and failing to deny the
charge of cashing fraudulent or forged
School pay certificates, has placed him
self within tho jurisdiction of thc Court
of Sessions, in which Court I think that
these two mongrels will weigh very light
in thc balance, and perhaps may bc found
Whilst these colored youths do not
understand thc meaning and application
of the term " Blackmail^" they seem
perfectly familiar with tho practical op
eration of "Brownman," and we advise
them, or the white or colored pimp, who
may have indited their insolent card, to
remember that justice overtakes at last
the offender ; and that when thejr mani
fest as much industry and energy in
obtaining for their constituents trials In
jury, and thorough investigation of thc.
indebtedness of the County as they have
shown in plundering the treasurj', they
may then call themselves at the best,
only colored gentlemen. When these
men next hear from me it will be from
the criminal side of the Court. '

For the Advertiser.
MB, EniTon: In vindication of myself,
against the chargosof John H. McDovitt,
late County Auditor, now County Treas
urer, I beg leave to say, that they are
false in every particular.
ImetMr. Strom, Chairmanof tho Board
of County Commissioners, in Columbia,
on or about the 2Qth of January, and no
tified him to meet tho Jury Board on the
30th, in Edgeiield. He said he would,
and did meet me on tho appointed day.
I met Mr. McDevitt, County Auditor;
also, at tlie Pino House, on the 30th of
January, and informed him that I had
come to Edgefield to list tho Jury, who
said that bo had business in Columbia,'
and was obliged to go after it.
I came to the Village, and with Mr
Strom, the Chairman of the Board of
County Commissioners, endeavored to
find tho Poll list from which w? might
in all events, list a Jdry for ;873, but
none could be found: I remained with
Mr. Strom two days in the Village, and
McDevitt never appeared.

not wait for further troubles to appear,
but clean out tho stomach and bowels of
slimy, corrupt accumulations; start thc
