WEDNESDAY, APR. 1, 1896. LGGAL2 BREVITIES. JULIUS J. FLEMING ESQ. ' In tlie year 1892 the subject of this notice disposed of his possessions in the town of Sumter S. C., where he had lived for forty odd years, and, together with his wife, in June of that year re. moved to Edgefield to spend his re maining days with his daughter wJio had provided a home for her parent8 here. Mr. Fleming was born in Charleston seventy-three years ago; Was educated in that city and in Philadelphia and at the University of Georgia where he graduated with distintion. His ex. penances in life were many and varied Ile taught school for a number of years and for rt time was president of a college in Greenville Tenu. In the Of ties he settled in Sumter S. C., and was there editor of the Sumter Watchman and Sum'er News. About the year 1865 he was engaged oh the editorial and re_ portorial statt of the old Charleston Courier-and his contributions to that sterling old journal, of the ancient re gime, were always gems of clearcut thought and classic beauty. We heard a distinguished South Carolina Judge sav, on one occasion, that his writings in the Courier \*ere "perfect models o' pure English undefiled," and that he did very much towards driving Radicalism and the vanpires that fed on our theo prostrate State from her borders. He gave thc name "ringrstreaked and striped" to the republican legislature that first assembled in Columbia after the reconstruction period of our history and his description of the personel of that body was of the richest and raciest. In the sixties he was sent by the Courier to Florida to write up the Land of Flowers and eighteen letters en titled "on the winff and on the wave*' added much to his already high reputa tion as a writer. Later he was sent by the same paper with the Georgia Press Association to write up the mineral, industrial aud commercial wealth of the Empire State-a work he did so well that an ovation was tendered in the city of Atlanta. , Mr. Fleming became a member of the Sumter bar in 1S67, practiced in the courts of the eastern parts of the State for twenty years, and his triumphs in that arena were his greatest achieve ments. Thc same Judge alluded t0 above, told us that the Sumter courts were sometimes "called Fleming's courtg because he had all the business." And he also had travelled much, had met many great ones of earth, had seen and heard Calhoun and Clay a'nd Webster; bad visited at their homes Longfellow and Bryant and Holraes and of these and of many others of the dead past he had a wonderful store and ?ur.d of memories and incidents-a most delightful raconteur. But there is an end of all thing's ! Our old friend esme to EdgelieId^o,die ; he told us so, 4nd"thaThe was prepared. His checks on time bad all been cancelled/and hp . was ready for the last accounting. Hie triumphs and his failures alike, "a* prayers r,nd deeds, pierce starward like t- sor g. and yonder skies hold records of his toils and tears."-On Wednesday morning last at the gray dawning he died; on Thursday his remains were laid to rest in our Baptist cemetery, "where heaves the turf on many a mouldering heap." But his spirit, ran_ seined redeemed disenthralled, i"l already enjoying what, in mortal life, the eye of faith alone can explors. t4For none return from th-se quiet shores, Who cross with the boatman cold and pale; We hear thc dip of the golden oars.

He said "that the word of God had lived to witness the Hebrew nation descend from its exalted height among the great peop'zs of antiquity to be scattered as sheep without a shepherd; that Grecian cities which had hated God's word were crumbled into dust; that proud Rome had lived to seethe King of Zion hold sway over all her conquered possessions, and kings of armies did flee apace."
