[A friend has kindly handed us the
following address with a request that
we republish. It is clipped from a
paper, probably the Greenville News
of several years sgo, but there is noth
ing about the clipping to indicate the
paper or year when delivered.?Ed.
'The following was au address de
livered by Vannoy Cleveland, July
21at, at the reunion of the Davis
Guards, Company F, of the Hampton
Legion, at Grove station, this county.
It is published by request of members
of the company and will be found of
interest :
"Ladies and gentlemen and fellow
soldiers of tho Hampton Legion:
Thirty-one years ago on the last day I
of June there assembled at this place j
127 brave hearts, led by Capt. Man
ning Austin, to embark for Columbia
to join the Hampton Legion at that '
place, and to give their services to
battle for the cause of the Southern
Confederacy. There are a few of that
gallant band who hear me to day well
remember that scene. It must have
been truly touching and affecting?
that parting from families, from moth
ers, wives and sweethearts, aud with
many that was a final separation.
The bones of many of them lie buried
on the distant battle fields of Virginia
and Tennessee. What bitter anguish
was in that parting, and what bold re
solves animated their breasts, as they
j??Mwercd with promptness the call to
Uuty aud to arms.
"We have met here on this'occasion
to commemorate the anniversary of a
great battle, fought thirty-one years
ago, and also to have a hearty hand
shake and social reuuion with the few
survivors of Captain Austin's company
and members of other companies of
that gallant and renowned body of
soldiers. 'Twas in that battle of Ma
neBBas we first had the opportunity to
burn gunpowder and fire our first shots
for the cause that began at Fort Sum
tar and ended at Appomattox. I
would I were an orator that I might
portray in fitting language why the
Southern soldiery were animated to
enter (his grand conflict and to re
count the many deeds of bravery done
by them for the cause they loved so
well but then oome after me orators to
speak to you who's shoe straps I am
unworthy to pull on and whose oratory
you will this day have an opportunity
to bear and appreciate. I might take
up all the time allotted far speaking
in giving yon reminisoences and inci
dents that happened during those four
years we spent in 'days of toil and
nights of waking1 on the hillsides and
valleys of Virginia and Tennessee un
til we laid down our arms and return
ed home in peace, after wearing our
selves out whipping the Yankees, as
expressed by the immortal Toombs, of
Georgia. But I will weary your pa
tience only a abort while an I try to
tell a few incidents that oome to
memory and you will pardon me if I
may seem egotistical in this detail.
"A few years ago I was strolling
through a small city of the dead at
Washington Churoh, in the lower part
of this county when my attention was
drawn to a marble head stone on which
was inscribed the name of Robert
Farmer, died August, 1861. For more
than a quarter of a century an inci
dent connected with that name had
entirely passed out of memory. It
brought to mind one evening in the
attio room of an old farm house near
rthe Potomac soon after the battle of
Maoas938, a scene which at the time
impressed me with its Badness. It
was at that time just after that great
battle when disease was fast decimat
ing our army, end our camps were one
vast hospital. In that little room lay
several of the sick of our regiment,
and among them was Hob Farmer, a
handsome youth of sixteen, breathing
his last. There was 'lack of woman's
nursir0, there was dearth of woman's
tears' at the death bed of this soldier
of the legion. There was a brother
by him and I remember his agony and
grief aa he watched the shortoing
breath, the quick gasps and the ap
proaching pallor of death. I sat by a
window watching the sun go down for
I could not bear to look upon the dy
ing boy so far away from home, moth
er and friends, and when that golden
orb had sunk behind the western hills,
the spirit of Bob Farmer had gone to
join tho army of the great majority in
the vast unknown. It was my sad
duty to prepare him for burial and
.place him in a rude coffin, as his
^brother wa9 heart broken and unfitted
' for the task. Lot me repeat to you a
t pretty piece of poetry that has often
vxeminded me of this dying boy :
?1 tok 'er of the Legion, lay dying In the
There was Jack of woman's nursing, there
1 / was lack of woman's tears,
/ But av^'^rfde miooU beside him as his
life blood ebbed away,
s ci* a Soldier.
. And bent with pitying glances to hear
what he might say.
The dying soldier faltered as he took that
comrade's hand,
\ And he said: I never more shall view my
I own, my native land,
Take a message and a token to some dis
tant friends of mine,
For I was born at Bingen, fair Bingen, on
the Rhine.
Tel! my brothers and companions, when
they meet and crowd around
To bear my mournful story in the pleas
ant viueyard ground,
Tba*. we fought the battle hrsvoly and
when the day waa done,
Full many a corpse lay ghostly pale be
neath the setting suu,
And tnld the dead and dying were some
grown old in wars,
The death wounds on their gallant
breasts, the last of mauy scars;
And some were young and suddenly be
hold life's morn decline,
And one had come from Bingen, fair
Bingen, on the Rhine.
Tell my mother that her other sons shall
comfort her old age,
For I was still a truant bird, that thought
his home a cage,
For my father was a soldier, and even as
a child,
My heart leapt forth to hear him tell of
struggles tierce and wild,
And when he died and left us to divide
hia ?canty hoard,
I let thern to take what e'er they would,
but kept my father's sword;
And with boyish love hung it, where
the bright light used to shine
Oa the cottage wall of Bingen, fair Bin
gen, on the Rhine.
Telt my sister not to weep for me, and
sob with drooping bead,
When the troops come marching home
again, with glad and gallant tread,
But to look upon them proudly, with a
calm and steadfast eye,
For her brother was a soldier, too, and
not afraid to die;
And if a comrade seek her love, I ask her
in my name,
To listen to him kindly, without regret or
And to hang the old sword In its place
(my father's sword and mine),
For the honor of old Binnen, dear Bin
gen, on the Rhine.
There is another, not a sistor, in the hap
py days gone by,
You'd have known her by the merriment
that sparkled in her eye
Too innocent for coqueti*; too fond for
idle scorning,
O, friend, I fear the lightest heart makes
sometimes heaviest mourning;
Tell her the last night of my life (for e'er
the moon be risen,
My body will be out of pain, my soul, be
out of prison),
I dreamed I stood with her and saw the
yellow sunlight shine
On the vioeclad bills of Bingin, fair Bin
gen, on the Rhine.
I paw the blue Rhine sweep along, I
beard, or seemed to hear,
The German songs we used to sing in
chorus sweet and clear,
And down the pleasant river, and up the
slanting bill,
The echoing ohorua sounded through the
evening calm and still,
And her glad blue eyes were on me, as we
passed with friendly talk
Down many a path beloved of jce, and
well remembered walk,
And her little hand lay lightly, confiding
ly in mine, N
But we'll meet no more at Bingen, fair
Bingen, on the Rhine.
His trembling voice grew faint and
hoarse, his grasp was childish weak,
His ay as put on a dying look, he sighed
and ceased to speak,
His comrade bent to lift him, but the
spark of life bad fled,
The soldier of the Legion, in a foreign
land is dead,
And the so't noon rose npslowly, and
calmly she looked down
On the red sands of the battle field, > .ih
bloody oorses strewn,
Yet calmly on the dreadful scene her pale
light seemed to shine.
As it shone on dhUant Blngln, fair Bin
gen, on the Bhine.
Another scene connected with that
little room not quite so sad comes to
memory. A member of my oompany
whose frame had been reduced to a
skeleton by the burning waste of
typhoid fever lay on a cot looking
more dead than alive. One day in
feeble, pitying and pleading tones he
begged for a bath. I rather feared to
tackle the job, for it seemed this
almost lifeless, limber body would go
to pieces when I began to handle him.
After lifting him into ? large tub of
warm water I started to rub his paroh
od and fever crusted skin when it be
gan to slip, and I can assure you no
black snake ever more completely cast
his shed than did this wasted and
fever stricken piece of mortality slip
out of his skin from head to foot.
The old lady of the house gave me a
gourd of fat, and after giving him a
good grease all over I wrapped him
i in bis blanket and left him to his
fate. This man survives and is to
day a respected member of the Green
ville police, and has mc- to thank for
his life.
"Once again when near the picket
lines at Suffolk, Va., my head and
shoulder unfortunately came in con
tact with a Yankeejbullet. I was car
ried from the field and transported by
rail to Petersburg to the hospital.
During the night's ride on the^ars a
little doctor would enue by every few
minutes and administn a pill of opium
and in a abort whihl became under
the influence and like a drunk man
did not know when I went to bed in
the hospital. What ecstacy, what de
licious delirium this drug brings. In
my dreams everything wai lovely in
the extreme. Beautiful scenery, beau
tiful flowers and fruits and beautiful,
females passed before my opium
clouded vision. Suddenly I was
aroused from this revery, my eyes
opened, and there before my startled
vision was a most lovely creature gaz
ing on me, with her soft tender fingers
lightly touching my bandaged head,
and in tones of deep tenderness she
said, 'poor fellow, he is shot in the
head.' I can never forget that tender,
loving angel?for she is an angel now
?for her devotion. She was at my
bedside constantly until I was able to
leave the hospital and before our last
separation there were words of love
and devotion spoken. She was after
wards killed by the bursting of a shell
while eating her dinner during the
bombardment of Petersburg.
"One more incident and I am done.
While General Longstroet was driv
ing the enemy from Loudon to Knox
ville, Tenu., he forced battle on the
retreating forces at Campbell Station
and there for awhile the lines swayed
back and forth in deadly conflict.
'Twas at this time Richard Cabun, as
fearless and as bold a soldier of our
company as ever carried a musket,
was shot down and left between the
lines. 'Twas then a man of God
named Thomas, a private soldier of
company C approached Colonel Gary
and asked he be allowed to go and
pray with the dying man. Colonel
Gary at first refused, but so importu
nate was this brave soldier that Gary
allowed him to go. Forward to the
side of Cabun advanced Thomas while
the bullets were plowing up the earth
and whistling around him and on
bended knee and uplifted hands he
implored the God of battles. Sudden
ly then, there was a lull in the storm
of battle and both sides gazed on the
affecting scene and ceased firing.
When Thomas returned our regiment
advanced with a yeil and drove the
enemy into their entrenchments at
Knoxville. A short time after, at
the request of Colonel Gary, I wrote
the order commissioning Private
Thomas as chaplain of the regiment.
"Now, fellow soldiers, in conclu
sion let me say we can never regret
the part we took in this struggle for
Southern independence, and we
should ever continue to hold these re
unions to let our children know and
remember their fathers were soldiers
and answered promptly the oall to
arms. Though our cause was lost,
still when an impartial history of the
struggle is written .the deeds of the
Southern soldier, the boy in gray will
fill a bright page in the annals of fame.
We brother soldiers will soon meet no
more at pleasant reunions, but will go
to join those who now rest in 'fame's
eternal camping ground* on) the bat
tlefields of Virginia and Tennessee
where wo shall remain until the grand
and final reveille shall be announced

We have a good all-round country.
Here, a man, by pursuing a system of

amount of energy is rewarded with a
fair harvest from the fields. Here is
' an atmosphere as pure as Heaven

give power to manufacture the fleecy

I which produces a sturdy race of yeo

Mr. Editor: It has not been so long
that the war and its incidents fail to
have a personal relish, and with your
permission, I beg to trespass on your
space and the patience of your readers
with an occasional moving incident.
The following will illustrate the stuff
that a soldier should be made of:
In 1864-65 and until the surrender,
Gary's cavalry brigade held the left of
General Lee's army on the north of
the James immediately in front of
Richmond. On the night previous to
the surrender of Richmond, the infan
try was withdrawn and in the morning
the brigade of cavalry slowly withdrew
from the lines with orders not to fire
on the enemy if they pressed. There
are three roads leading from the lower
part of the oity, for several miles
almost parallel with the river?the
river road along the bank, then next
tho Darby town, and farther north the
Charles City road, all leading from the
city and diverging at five or six miles
below. Tho brigade withdrew at
dawn, leaving picket? of ten men on
each road with instructions to with
draw slowly on the approach of the
enemy. Lieut. Farmer, of Co. D,
Hampton Legion, with one detach
ment, was placed on the river road.
The brigade moved ieisurely to the
city followed by the enemy's cavalry.
A Federal officer and private galloped
upon Farmer and of course surrender
ed. Presently Farmer ascertained
that the enemy had passed north of
him on the other roads and were in
possession of the city. Thus he was
situated with a navigable river a mile
wide cutting him off from Lee's army,
the enemy, ten thousand strong, three
miles above him and a thousand
chances to one against his escape.
The city was on fire, the Confederate
vessels were blowing up in the river,
the magazines encircling the city were
making an earthquake of the long
lines extending to Petersburg, his
own brigade, the last to leave the
Confederate capitol, had assisted in
burning the bridges behind them, but
Farmer got out of the difficulty and
did not surrender.
Dismounting his men and prisoners,
he plaoed them on the bank of the
great stream. A contract was made
with the Yankee officer that he Bhould
be kindly looked after if he was suc
cessfully brought to General Lee's
lines; Farmer and his meq were to re
ceive like treatment if they fell into
the power of the Federals. In the
course of the day a small boat manned
by two or three small boys, floated
along the stream. A few pistol shots
brought them to, and in a few min
utes, by their seamanship, Farmer, his
men and prisoners were landed on the
south side of the James, and by mid
night of that day he had joined his
flsg at Amelia, C. B., more than
twenty mi'es from Richmond, with his
men, turning over his Federsl captain
and private with the stipulation for
their kind treatment. Ninety-nine
men in a hundred would have surren
dered under the circumstances. The
writer does not know if the subject of
this adventure is still living iu An
derson County, and writes the story

Mormondom's Growth.
It seems certain that in numbers,
wealth, influence and aggressiveness
the Mormon Church is far greater to
day than ever before in its history.
Utah it has, of co?t?e, almost solidly;
and, having gained Statehood by de
liberate, persistent lying, it feels tole
rably secure and is resolved to do as it
pleases without referenoe to American
sentiment or law. That over 1,500
men are living to-day with polyga
mous wives is openly confessed ; and
that a considerable number of polyga
mous relations have been entered into
since Statehood and since the mani
festo of the Mormon President in 1890
pretending to do away with polygamy
is very oertaic, although legal proof
is, naturally, not easy to obtain. Al
ready Mormonism, besides dominating
Utah, holds, or claims to hold, the
balance of power in Idaho, Wyoming,
Colorado, Nevada, Arizona and New
Mexico. It is at least certain that,
by colonies qlJ other means, they are
continually extending their influence
in these neighboring States ; and the
politicians of that section, anxious for
votes in close elections, will be very
sure not to antagonize so powerful a
force. Educational and missionary
operations shoul l, of course, be push
ed in that region. The preaching of
the 3ospel and the teaching of Chris
tian schools are already doing uauob,
and can easily be made to do more, for
the saving of the situation. Letting
in the light is the best way to drive
