Oningcburg had her two Churches
also, Methodist and Baptist. These were
plain, old fashioucd, modest looking,
little structures with rough walls, bare
' benches and pino pulpits; but their
uneoinfortablencss nud inconvenience
did not prevent the little band of
devout worshipers from flocking thither
Sunday after Sunday. Here they came
in all kinds of weather, not only the
residents of the village but from thesur
rouuding cotrutiy also, these last iu
gigs, carts, queer-looking old ca royal Is,
and some on horseback. These were
tho days of good old-fashioned religion
when the heart could worship God
kneeling upon the bnro floor with the
sunlight or rain as it might chance to be ,
coming through the great openings in
the rr.of, with a deep, honest fervor we
f'< ar is almost unknown in these latter
time.:, of carpeted floors and cushioned

ojTiaincd of their homespun dresfees,
chocked nprons, snnbonncts, cotton
collars and cuffs and rou^h homoimud*
shoes. Or what cared they if their
rustic escort was clad' in a suit of clumsy
jonhs much too short at wrist and ancle,
which plainly showed tho check shin
beneath, or coarse brogans below t or
what, minded she of his awkward tin
gainly movements as he assisted her to
alight and then walked with her up to
tho "mcefin-hou.so" door, casting
"sheen's eyes" around all tho time to

which then served hs a post office, and
were thero left for distribution. Not
yot had the "snort of the iron horse"
penetrated this quiet little village.
Ou one of the prinoipal streets, near
whero Mr. lliggs now carries on his
carriage manufactory, thero stood a
rough luoking little shed- known as "the
market." On top of this was placed n
bull, aud iuside woro found blocks lor
cutting up meat, and the necessary
scaks for weighing. This was placed

Ah! how boyish hearts swelled with
n i'd or and enthusiam as they, too, longed
to bo a ""jullaut soldier."
In tho days ol which wo are writing
tho laws ol South Carolina were exceed
ingly severe,<ind wero geutrally enfor
ced to their fullest extent. Tho stealing
of a slave was then considered to bo
ono of tho most crimiunl of offenses and
was punished with hanging. About ibis
time ther'o came to Orangeburg a Span
iard by the name of La Crow. Said La
Crew was ofa wild, fOvitig disposition,
and addieted to frequent drinking. Ho
formed an intimacy while here with a ne
gro banted Edmund, bolouging to Thom
as Cross, an intimacy which afterwards
cost La Crew his life. Ilo was charg
ed with attempting to steal this l.dmuud
and sufficient proof having been found
against him he was tried, convicted and
sentenced to be. hung. Popular feeling
ran high in his frvor, and it may be re
membered by some now living how np
to the very last La Crew protested his
innocence, and declared that the time
would soon come when they would find
that he spoke truly. In corrobor.itio n
of this statement in af'or years, it i.->
said that Kduiuud upon his death bed
called his master to him aud there told
him of the conspiracy that bad been
formed against the unfortunate La Crew.
The fuels oi the case r.s be is supposed
to have told tbem are as follows :
It seemed that LaCrow io sonic way
had incurred tho auger nnd jealousy of.
two prominent character*) ort the village
and I bey determined to rid themselves
of his presence. Thoy hired this
Kdiuiind to go to LaCrew and tell him
that there was a person across the rivor,
who wanted to sec him on sneh n night
at a certain hour, and idler to conduct
him thither. They then, acting out the
other part of tho plot, informed the
authorities that thoy bad hoard that on
a certain night, naming the one, LaCrow
w. s going with Rduiuud oil foot Lo
Charleston where be was to sell him
and divide the profits. The authorities
set a Watch. The night having arived
the unsuspicious La Crew set out with
Kdmund for the purpose ol having an in
tervtew with this person,a* he suppisurd,
but in foot walking right into the very
trap that bad been set for him. Thoy
were overtaken just this side of tb<S river
bridge and La CfiSW being found iu the
company of Kdmund was suUicio it proof
of bis Icing guilty of stealing a slave,
never mind how uimd? be protested tj
the contrary. lie was brought back,

worse fate than mine will overtake them.
To one of them, Mr.- 1 wish to

upon the face of the earth, shunned 'of

To the other: You sir will diothe death
of a dog, and the buz/.atds will pick

be exclaimed * ".Mark my prediction
and sco if it does irof cotuu true." Then
to the people he said : *i am far from
my native land-, friendless and' among
strangers, yot I cau die as becomes a

kuot, but beingsumewhat inexperienced,

around his own nock. Thou with the
words: "I'm .roady,. and hero I go !"

was hurried into eternity.

as hrr declared1 hud conspired against

For a long while after the hanging of
La Crow numerous wore tho stories set
afloat by the superstitious affirming that
the ghost of the Spauiuid might ol\( u
b?; seen haunting a lonely ^spotj on the.
river road near a veucrublo oak that
stood iu the center of the street, near
the residence of Mr Jacob Ilickonbaker.
A number of negroes and little ah?dron
about the plaie fully b.elievcd all this
aud had sometimes declared they them
selves had seen "the spirit." Quite an
amusing story is told in connection with
those on one of the jurymen who served
at that time. Old "Uucle Johnnie" as
he was more familiar by known, was a
queer eccentric character, notouly a great
lover of his drink, but highly supersti
tious also. On sale and election d iy.s
and at numerous other times, he might
bo socu on a venerable looking gray
horse riding about the village, where ho
would remain until a late hour drinking,
too tipsy to return home. One night
'Uncle Johnnie" was taking his usual
driuks at one of the little doggeries. A
number of persons being present the
conversation turned upon the lulu hang
ing and the stories that had been set
afloat. With a sly wink at "Uncle
Johnnie" which the set understood, one
waggish young fellow w nt to giving
awful blood cu.d ing stories of the ghost
ly visitant. "Uncle Johnnie" listeucd
terror stricken, so greatly frightened
that his knees shook together. This oak
at which the ghost was said to make its
appearance, lay directly on bis road
home, ami the more ho thought of it
the more his courage sank, and he
kept delaying his time of departure
Unobserved by him one or two of the
oung fellows style out, and securing
tho services of a ventriloquist who was
then passiug through the place, proceed
ed to this huge oak, and there, made an
cfligy of La ('row. Stretching a rope,
across from the tree to the fence by
means of a ring fastened around the
effigy's neck they could at any moment
swing it out into the center of the read.
Hiding iu the fence corner they awaited
old "'l'uclc Johnnie's" upptoach It was
at quite a late hour iu the night when,
having scrcved up his courage to its
highest pitch, he sallied forth lor his
As he noarcd the m-trch dreaded oak
suddenly there swung out before his hor
rified . gaze the figure of the murdered
Spaniard. With a cry of terror, "Undo
Johnnie." reined iu his horse, and be
gan pleading to the ghost a^ he suppos
ed, fur mercy. But the figure, ilia deep
sepulchral voice, declared that ho had
come from the other world for him, nnd
ho must now go. Thou as it made a
swing towards the frightened man, as if
to clutch him, human nature coal 1 en
dure is no longer. Turning his horse's
head "Cuclfl Johnnie" galloped madly
back to the village,-one yell after another
ringing out upon the night air, startling
the inhabitants from their .dumber. Ali
that uighthe lay awake at the tavern not
daring to return Irotttu again, groaning
with terror und declaring llnrt the ghost
of La Crew had come for him. Though
the joke was found out afterwards yet to
his dying .day old "Uncle Johnnie"
fully believed and firmly protested that
he had seen the ghost of the Spaniard,
and no argument or proof cuuld con
vince him to the contrary.
