HISTORY OF SO From the First Settle the Rev By REV. IIOHER' I From the Yorkville Enquirer of 1875, I INSTALLMENT XXI. Nathaniel Johnson. i The administrations of Moore and his successor mark an important epoch in the history- of South Carolina. The Importance consists not in what was done, but in the direction In which the current of public sentiment began to flow. At this time a political party was formed, which culminated, in 1719, in the i transfer of the province from the proprietors to the Crown of England. Nathaniel Johnson was a man in many respects admirably adapted for 1 the high position to which he was appointed; but unfortunately, he was banded together with Moore, Trott, ' Howe and others high in office. These formed a kind of nucleus around which gathered a multitude of creatures who had neither the spirit to resist insult nor to maintain their rights. In every country there is a class of men who are easily bought. In the colony, at the time of which we are speaking, such a class of persons existed. These?Moore, Trott and ' Johnson?bought up and kept under their control, to the great detriment i of the peace and tranquility of the colony. Their votes were bought i with rum, and with the same price they were both hired and inflamed to make attacks upon peaceful citizens. Prosperity In Spite of Corruption. One would be led to conclude that 1 under such a government the colo ? ny would have ceased to flourish. Such, however, was not the case. Charles Town was put In a proper state to be defended against the invasions of the Spanish, both from ' Havana and St. Augustine. The lia1 bility to be attacked at any moment never permitted them to lose sight of the necessity of being well fortified. The assembly were ever careful to In quire into the military condition of the province, and generous in making appropriations for the defense. For the time, strong fortifications had been erected on Cooper river. Magazines had been built, and ammunition of various kinds stored away In them. When Governor Johnson assumed the duties of his office, there were about one hundred cannon, planted in different localities, for the defense of the city. Some of these were small; but when we remember the youthfulness of the colony, we are ready to conclude that the people displayed much energy in fortifying themselves. During the administration of Johnson, Fort Johnson was commenced and completed, which was at that time, regarded, as sufficient to command the harbor. Aimed at the Dissenters. Among the first acts ratified whilst Nathaniel Johnson was governor, was one which was designed to deprive the Dissenters of all power in the administration of the government of the colony, and place all power and all the offices of honor and trust in the hands of Episcopilians. It is entitled "An act for the establishment of religious worship in this province, according to the Church of England." The first section required that all the forms and ceremonies of the Church of England be strictly observed by all ministers in the province. This seems strange, when we remember that far the "r""0 '**" niimluir ,,f th? InhnhilantM were Dissenters of various persuasions. It must not be forgotten that it ' was the purpose of the original proprietors of the province to establish in it the form of religious worship held and practiced by the Church of England; but through the influence, ' no doubt, of John Locke, the section was introduced which granted religious liberty to Dissenters. Honesty demands us to say that we do not think strange of the original proprietors cherishing such an intention. They had been educated in the i Church of England, and if not con. sistent members of it, at least all ! their prejudices were in its favor. It does not appear that the original proprietors were men of more than , ordinary piety; but they were strong' ly inclined to favor the Church of I England, whilst they acted leniently I toward Dissenters. i Up to the time of Johnson, no efi fort was made to disturb the inhabi' tants of the colony in their religious belief. Infidels and papists were ex' eluded; but Christians of all persua! sions were permitted to worship God ' according to the dictates of their own conscience. It is true that in 1698, during the time of Governor Blake. > an act was passed settling a maini tenance upon a minister in the Church of England in Charles Town; but this was not designed, as we understand it, to establish a particuI lar form of Christian religion in the i province. The act of 1698 provided . that seven hundred and fifty dollars, (?150 stfrlinsr.) he settled upon Samuel Marshall and his successors for ever. Samuel Marshall was a pious ninister of the gospel, and was at that time pastor of the Episcopal church at Charles Town. Blake, who was either a Presbyterian or a Bap. list, proposed the law, and it was . through his influence and the influi ence of other Dissenters that it was . passed by the assembly. It Is eviI dent, from this fact alone, that it T was not designed by the assembly to i establish the Church of England in - the colony. The fact is. the EpiscoI palians were greatly in the minority, and as said before, 110 question was , made in the colony respecting re-J I ligious creeds or professions. Great 1 harmony existed amongst all sects. I It rather seems that the acts of 1698 had its origin in a generous and noble . Christian spirit. The strong assisted the weak, the many stretched out a > helping hand to the few. Samuel Marshall was a very pious man and greatI ly beloved by all parties. The character and instruction of this good ' man, no doubt, had much to do in [ the passage of the act to which we have referred. ' Effort to Establish Church of England. , From the first day that Granville I became Palatine, he determined to ?st :i liliwli the Chlii'cll of Fncl.'tnd ill the colony of South Carolina, and I either banish or render powerless the i Dissenters. The diameter of Gran ville was well known to the leaders ' of the dominant party in the colony, and for purposes purely mercenary. UTH CAROLINA. anient to the Close ot ol lit ion. 1 r LATHAN, 1>. I>. ? I they favored his unholy scheme. Truth requires us to say that the Episcopalian church, as such, is not chargeable with the many laws which were passed during the administration of Nathaniel Johnson in reference to religion. Neither was it done by any act of the Episcopalian members of the assembly that passed the act most destructive to the rights and liberties of the majority of the people. Several of the Episcopalian members voted against the act, and the Rev. Marston was called "the pest of the country" because he declared, in several sermons that the assembly had usurped to themselves unrighteous powers. The Rev. Marston was the successor of Samuel Marshall as pastor of the Episcopal church in Charles Town. The passage of the act filled his soul with righteous indignation. and for his opposition to the course of the usurpers he was made to. answer. His salary was withheld, and he was otherwise made to suffer. The acts passed are too long to quote. To give the reader an idea of their general character, we will transcribe some portions of them. Section II of the act ratified May 6, 1704, was as follows: Whereas some persons scruple the receiving the sacrament of the Lord's Supper, for reasons they fear they are not rightly fitted and pre y-v tto?fnl/n n# f V? O f AW/^lnQnAO imi't-u iu pai (dive; ui mai uiuiuaiiw, who .do, nevertheless, out of real < choice, conform to the Church of England, as established by law, and do sincerely profess the same, and ' do not abstain from the sacrament of the Lord's Supper out of dislike to the a manner and forme of the administration . thereof, as used- by the Church of England, and prescribed In the com- I I munion office in the book of common i prayer of the said church; be It there- , fore enacted by the authority aforesaid, That every person, that after ' the ratification of this act, shall be 1 chosen a member of the Cbmmons j House of Assembly In this province, in case that he .hath not received the ( sacrament of the Lord's Supper, ac- 1 cording to the right and usages of < the Church of England, as is before , prescribed by this act, then every such person, before he votes in the 1 said Commons House of Assembly, or 1 sits there during any debate in the | said house after the speaker is chosen. shall, upon his oath, taken on the Holy Evangelist, declare that he is of the profession of the Church of < England, as established by law, and , that he doth conform to the same, and usually frequenty the said church ' for the public worship of God. 1 The first section of this act made ' it incumbent upon each member to 1 have tahen the sacrament of the * Lord's Supper, as prescribed by the Church of England, within the last 1 twelve months previous to his taking ( his seat. Section II Is a kind of pro- ! viso to meet the case of those Epls- ' copalians who had conscientious scruples about their fitness to partake 1 of this holy ordinance. Section IV of ' the same enactment absolutely for- J bids any one, except an Episcopalian ' to take his seat as a member of the 1 assembly, although duly elected by 1 the votes of his fellow citizens. The 1 penalty for such presumption on the ! j part of a Dissenter, was for the first I offense, two hundred and fifty dollars, and fifty dollars a day for each repe- 1 .tltion of the offense. This was tyr- 1 anny in its worse form. There was 1 something mean in it also. Half the ' fines were to be paid over to Granville, the Palatine, and the remain- ' ing proprietors; and the other half to be disposed of by an ordinance of the general assembly. It seems as if the proprietors were determined, in some way or other, to make money out of their poor, dissenting tenants. To further show that the acts having for their avowed object the establishment of the Church of England in South Carolina was not an ecclesiastical movement, a bench of high commissioners was created, who had granted them all the powers of the Bishop of London, under whose control the American churches were. These commissioners were granted power to cite any minister before them and proceed at once to try him; and if they saw fit. to silence him from preaching. This was assuming unheard of authority. The names of the commissioners were Nathaniel Johnson, Thomas Broughton, James Moore, Nicholas Trott, Robert Glbbes, Job Howes. Ralph Izard, James Klsbee, George Logan, Willlum Rhett, William Smith, John Stroud, Thomas Hubbard, Richard Beresford, Robert Seabrook, Hugh Hicks, John Ash ley, John Godfrey, James Serurler. alias Smith, and Thomas Barton. The character of most of these Individuals is known. The names of some of them are covered with disgrace. 'The pastor of the church of Charles Town testified that most of them were irreligious men; and we know from the previous acts of some of them, that they had not the fear of God before their eyes. Moved by ignorance and prejudices, they determined to reduce to a state of vassalage the greater number of the inhabitants of the colony. The spirit of persecution is manifest in all their acts. This bench of lay commissioners met, and the Rev. Marston, rector of St. Phillip's, was forbidden to exercise the functions of his office any longer. Paring this period, the dominant putty was jubilant. Everything was working as they desired. A scheme far reaching and malicious, althougn clothed in the language of religion, had been devised and inserted in a body of laws, which would effectually stop the mouths of the people and vacate the pulpits of the province. A law had been ratified on the 6th day of May, 1703, excellent in words, but a goat in sheep's clothing. It was a trap set to catch Dissenters. | It professed to be an act to suppress blasphemy, but was proposed with the mistaken notion, firmly fixed , in the minds of the dominant party. | that the Dissenters denied all the fundamental principles of religion, and were only a set of vile blasphe- ( mers. The act passed, establishing ' the Church of Kngland as the church j of the colony, drove all Dissenters i from the assembly, and shut the door upon them so long as this law should continue. The law for suppressing | blasphemy deprived every one who ^ should, in haste, or from grievous j provocation, speak a hasty word ' against this self constituted oligarchy, from exercising the most ordi nary rights of a citizen. He was made incapable of receiving any legacy or gift; In one word, he was made a mere cipher. The trap was set, and the prospects, for a while, tvere favorable. But the vile schemes j( a few for the ruin of many, were soon to come to an end. Home Government Advised of Situation. After the election frauds,' Joseph \she was prevailed upon by several if the best, as well as the oldest, nhabltants of the country, to go to Pnorlonrl onrl molfo n nlni n at at a. ment of the miserable condition of I things In the colony. He met with | io encouragement from John So (Lord Granville.) Ashe came back :o Virginia and commenced the pubieatlon of the facts In the case, but lied before the work was completed. The few sheets which were flnlsh?d, fell, by improper means, into the bands of the Grand Council, and Thomas Smith, one of the oldest men In the colony, was persecuted because of the connection he held with \she and the other memorialists. After the passage of the laws establishing the Church of England as the church of the colony, Joseph Boone. In behalf of himself and many 3f the inhabitants, as well as some t London merchants, presented a pe- ' tltlon to the proprietors, in which they set forth their grievances. John Somers treated the petition and petitioners with the utmost harshness, rhe Palatine refused, for some time, to call the proprietors together; and when he did call them, had no in- ] tentlon of showing the petitioners j any favors or removing any of the grievances of which they complained. ' John Arehdale, one of the proprle- , tors, and at one time governor of Carolina, was, from principle, opposed to the acts which the assembly * KqH nouoa/1 Ho nnH Snmprs miRr- ? reled, when Somers declared, in an j angry tone: "I am for this bill, and this is the party that I will head and I iountenance." When Boone requested that he might make his statement, Somers, (Lord Granville,) replied: "I will do as I see tit." The end was approach- , ing. The people of England were incensed at the high-handed measure of appointing a lay commission, which to all intents and purposes, ivas a direct thrirst at the Bishop of London. "The society for the propagation of the gospel," wTiich had * Jone much to support the gospel in the colony of Carolina, met and passid a resolution to send no more as dstance to the colony in Carolina, until the clause of the act ewtablishng a lay commission should be repealed. ' Appeal to House of Lords. Boone, thwarted In his efTorts to obtained redress for injuries receiv- ( id at the hands of the proprietors, ) placed his caae In the hands of the House pf Lords. These saw in the iolonial laws respecting religion, much that was not granted by the ' uriglnal charter, and much that was J subversive of the English Constltu- ? tion. The petition was examined as i carefully as the short time of the session would allow, and then presentid to the Queen for her examination. | In April, 1706. the whole matter was t referred to the Board of Trade. The lawyers of the crown declared that the acts establishing Episcopacy In South Carolina ought to be repealed, ind that the proprietors had forfeited their charter and recommended that It be annulled. All that saved the charter to the proprietors . was the fact that they were peers of the realm. On the 10th of June, the Queen of England nullified the enactments of Johnson, Moore, Trott md a few others, who composed the oligarchy In South Carolina. TO BR CONTINITBD. What Is Bromonia?
