His First Sermon.
Mr. A. Whit Cheatham, a Henderson
boy, who is studying for the ministry
at Union Theological Seminary,
at Ilampdcn-Sidney College, Va., as
the special charge of the Henderson
Presbyterian church, preached his first
sermon to a large congregation last
Sunday night. He preached from the
text: "For as I passed by, and beheld
jour devot'ons,I found an altar with this
inscription, To thk Unknown God.
Whom therefore ye iguorantly worship,
him declare I unto you." Acts, xvii ch.,
23rd v. It was a well conceived and
well delivered sermon for a young man
not yet 21 years old, and was as grat
ifying to his friends as it was creditable
to himself. Those who know Whit
Cheatham have recognized hinj as a
bright boy with a promising future, but
we doubt not his hearers were agreeably
surprised at" the fresh evidence given
of it Sunday night.
This is his first year at the Seminary.
He graduated at Davidson College last
June with highest honors. Entering
college under 10 years of age he was
not permitted to enter the Greek class
but during the closing year he received
the Greek tutorship and was engaged
at a salary of $100 to teach Greek,
standing first in a class of 32, of which
he was the youngest.
He has natural ability, industry and
ambition and will not be satisfied until
he reaches the highest position of honor
and usefulness to which he may reason
ably aspire. During vacation Mr. Cheat
ham will supply the churches at War
renton, Louisburgaud Geneva, preach
ing twice a month at the first named
place and once at the others.
Scrofula is an impurity of the blood

blindness and deafness. Take P. P. P.

And Sigrns a Card Acknowledging:
that he Has been Deceived and
Misled in the Matter.
He Exonorates Col. Buagwyn and Makes
an Honorable Amend for the Injury
Done that Gentleman.
Dan Hall has sha' e 1 the dust of Hen
derson from his feet.
He stepped out of Vance county jail
with more buoyant spirits and elastic
fetep yesterday than he has done before
since he first found lodgment there on
the afternoon of March 28th.
He was about to take his leave of Hen
derson and return tohishomein Atlanta.
The particulars of his release are as
follows: Monday three gentlemen came
here from Atlanta to see if they could
not do Bomethina: to get "Dan" out of
the trouble he was in. They were Messrs.
W. C. Dodson and I). Perkinson, brothers-in-law,
and Mr. John Hall, brother of
Dan Hall. They did not state what
course they would pursue and the general
impression was that they had come to
go on his bond aud would do this if the
decision of the Supreme Court was un
favorable to him. They consul ted counsel
on both sides, had an interview with Col.
Burgwyn and talked with citizens of the
town in regard to the matter. They had
come to inform themselves about his af
fair and having done so they were not
long in deciding what was the proper
thing to be done.
Col. Burgwyn was approached on the
subject and while he was frank to express
his regrets at the difficulty Hall and Jen
kins had got themselves into, he could
not, in justice to himself, drop the matter
and give them their freedom. It must be
settled in the courts. It had not been
his pleasure or desire that they should
have to go to jail. He had hoped they
would be able to give their bond, as an
evidence of which fact he had consented
for it to be reduced. He did not want to
persecute them, but he did feel perfectly
justifiable in proteculinj them and would
do it to the full extent. He must have
satisfaction, (not in a monetary sense,
for those who know Col. Burgwyn have no
idea that it is "blood money' heis after),
but a vindication of his character and
the integrity of his Bank. His character
had been assailed, the integrity of the
Bank of which he is President, has been
impugned and vindication, full and com
plete, must be had. This was what he
wanted and not a verdict for damages in
dollars and cents.
The books and accounts bearing on
the case (Col. Burgwyn'a debt against
the Henderson Tobacco Company,
wherein Jenkins alleges th ere was fraud
and embezzlement and to establish which
he employed Hall to assist him as special
detective), having been examined and
found to be correct, Hall discovered that he
had been deceived and misled by Jenkins
and certain of his friends. He was ready
to confess his error and make proper
amends for the injury doneCol. Burgwyn.
Upon such intimation on his part his rel
atives had come on here to see what
could be done in his behalf.
Tuesday a proposition looking to a
satisfactory settlement of the matter as
far as Hall was concerned was made to
Col. Burgwyn, but as he was going to
leave on the 2:30 p. m. train for Raleigh
to attend the Immigration Convention
yesterday, he referred Messrs. Dodsou
and Perkinsou to Dr. W. T. Cheatham
and Mr. John D. Cooper, and ascertaining
that they would act for him left the
matter entirely with them. These gen
tlemen were selected because of their
prominence as citizens, their conservatism
and the peculiar position occupied by
them in regard to this whole affair.
Dr. Cheatham is one of the oldest and
best citizens of the town, and the father-
in-law of the president of the opposition
or rival bank to Col. Burgwyn's. Mr.
Cooper is one of the most prominent citi
zens and an ex-Mayor of the town. He
is also one of the stockholders and direc
tors in the bank above mentioned. While
both gentlemen have had implicit confi
dence iu Col. Burgwyn's integrity aud
the correctness of his accounts, they
have taken no partisan part in the mat
ter, and this was another reason why
they seemed fit and proper persons in the
opinion of Col Burgwyn to represent
As a result ofaconsultatiou between the
parties interested and Gen. W. H. Cheek
aud Messrs. A. C. Zollicoffer andUJ. H.
Bridgers, of counsel for Col. Burgwyn (Mr.
W. R. Henry was out of town at the
time) it was agreed that if Mr. Hall should
sign a card to the public vindicating
Col. Burgwyn, the case as far as he was
concerned would not be prosecuted
further .
After the investigation of the books
he had expressed himself as satisfied and
said he was sick of the matter. He was
ready to do so publicly and'eon fess that he
had been deceived and misled. Upon this
information his kinsmen came here from
Atlanta and as the result of their visit
Mr. Hall returned home with them yes
terday, having signed the following card
which explains itself:
Hexdersox, X. C, May 13th, 1801.
I feel it due to myself and the public,
and especially to CohWm.H. S. Burgwyn,
to write the following:
In the matters in controversy between
II. T. Jenkins, the Henderson Tobacco
Company and Cel. Burgwyn, which are
now pending in the Courts of North Caro
lina, I desire to explain my position. At
the beginning of this trouble I was em
ployed by H. T. Jenkins as a detective to
investigate the matters of account and
acertaiu if there wereerrors. My actions
ia this case have been from the first pro
fessional, and based upon information fur
nished me aud not from any personal
knowledge of the transaction. Mr. Jenkins
had upon many occasions stated to me,
there were many errors, false entries on
the books and embezzlements, and that
instead of being indebted to Col Burgwyn,
he, the said Burgwyn , was largely indebted
to him
Acting upon this information, in the
discharge of what I conceived to be my
duty as a detective, I went into this case,
and have used my best eudeavors in be
half of Mr. Jenkins.
In the investigation of the whole
matter in open Court, the books, accounts
and papers of the Bank were examined
and Col. Bnrgwyn was also examined on
oath. In this matter I find that I have
beea grossly deceived by Mr. Jenkins and
liis friends in every respect.
In the examination of the books and
evidence,! found no false entries, or errors.
although I had been informed by Mr.
Jenkins that they certainly existed. I
found the books and accounts correct,
and supported ia every case by proper
vouchers. '
Laboring under the information given
me by Mr. Jenkins (which I now find was
without foundation) I feel that I have
injured and wronged an honorable gen
tleman. -
I therefore here aud bow of my own
accord, desire to say to the public, that
as an honest man, desiring to do only
that which is right to my fellow-man, I
retract all that has been said or written
by me in this matter derogatory to the
character or business standing of Col.
Bnrgwyn, or his former cashier Mr. R. L.
Daingerfield, who has also in this trans
action shown himself athoroughly honest
gentleman. This card is written not at
the suggestion of Col. Burgwyn, or his
counsel, but as a matter of simple jus
tice. (Signed) Dan Hall.
Witnesses: W. T. Cheatham. M. D.,
John D. Cooper.
Upon information received from Mr.
Dan Hall that he had been misled by
false informatibn given him in thecontro
versy between Jenkins and Burgwyn, as
his friends and relatives we came to Hen
derson to see what could be done in the
Upon our arrival we looked into the
case, and from all the information we
could gather, we were satisfied Mr. Hall
had been deceived and misled, and that
Col. Burgwyn, who is a gentleman of
high character and standing, had been
greatly misrepresented, and we there
fore approve of the course taken by Mr.
Hall iu wriling the above card.
(Signed) 1). Perkinsox.
(Signed) W. C.Dodsox.
Witnesses: W. T. Cheatham, M. D.,
J ohn D. Cooper.
So "Dan" is not "in it" now. He
simply made a mistake, relying entirely
upon statements made to him by others,
and upon which all his charges, cards and
newspaper publications have been based,
and when he realized it he was ready to
say so.
His card is a full retraction, and under
the circumstances, as honorable to him
self as it is complete in its vindication of
Col. Burgwyn.

The hearts of many in our communit y
were made sad on Sabbath morning last,
the 10th May, at the announcement of
the death of little Richard Davidson, the
youngest child of Rev. and Mrs. T. J. Og
burn. The little fellow was a short while
ago as fine a specimen of childhood ascould
be found; but he was overtaken with
disease, and his wonderful strength and
manliness for one of his age, was forced
to succumb. The devotion and constant
attention of a father of extraordinary
tenderness and childish sympathy; of
a mother, of the deepest affection and
anxious watchfulness; as well as the un
wearied faithfulness of a physciau of
great skill were all exercised in vain, for
"The Lord hath need of him." As the
sun arose in his brightness to usher in
another Sabbath, his little sunlight went
out in the brilliancy of the light of the
Son of Righteousness as he entered into
the rest, or Sabbath, that remaineth to
the people of God.
The great comfort of those who sorrow
in this affliction is in the assurance, that
"where sin abounds grace does much
more abound." The blessed Master said
"Suffer the little children to come unto
me and forbid them not for of such is the
Kingdom of Heaven." There shall hebe
ever with theLord. Meditating on these
blessed assurances we mav truly say,
"It is well with the child." Although
this little one's life in this world was so
short, he being only 14 months and 2
days old at his death, yet his mission was
fulfilled, and although the earnest prayer
of parents and friends was for a length
ening of the cord of life, yet we were all
able to say Not our will but Thine be
done. The Lord gave and the Lord
hath taken away, blessed , be the name
of the Lord. S

Mr. Editor: The history of those
who did so much for their country in
her struggle for freedom, should be
written that survivors may know to
whom they are indebted for the bless
ings they enjoy. Robert Morris was a
true friend of his country and nobly
acted his part. Few of our country
men know how generously he came to
the relief of the country iu her hour of
' need. When the hunsrv and ill clothed
soldiers were almost ready to despair
and give up the struggle he generously
supplied their wants and kept them iu
the field. He came with his father
from England when a small boy. At
the age of 15 he was put in a business
house in Philadelphia ami showed such
business capacity at the age of 21 he
was taken iu as a partner. His suc
cess was wonderful. When the war
commenced he was a man of great
wealth. He not only assisted with his
own money but became surety for the
government to obtain a loan of fifteen
millions of dollars from France. When
the war was over he found himself with
less than what he had when it began.
He had given it in aid of the country.
He was a member of the Continental
Congress when the question of separa
tion was discussed. His name appears
as one of the signers of the instrument
that declared our purpose to strike for
freedom. He was one of the framers
of the Constitution, an instrument
showing so much wisdom many think
Divine Providence had much to do in
dictating it. After its adoption he
served as Senator in Congress and was
solicited by Washington to accept the
position of Secretary of the Treasury.
He recommended Hamilton, the ablest
financier our country has ever produced.
Morris was a noble and generous man.
Aided by such men as Franklin and
Hamilton he submitted his plan for the
establishment of the Bank of North
America. It was chartered on the 31st
of December, 1791. With such a man
as Morris at the head it proved a suc
cess and relief to the country. Thomas
Paine, author of the papers signed
"Common Sense," which were much ap
proved, took five hundred dollars of
the stock. He showed more "common
sense" by that movement than by
writing the "Age of Reason" to mis
lead the minds of young men. Wishing
to build up his depleted fortune he had
so lavishly expended in aiding his
country, he invested largely in real
estate in western New York, which
well nigh ruined him financially. Al-
; though he had kindly given such effi
cient aid to our people in the darkest
i hour of the contest, no hand was lifted
for his relief when misfortune overtook
him. He had the consolation, hovv-
ever, of feeling that his money had
j been spent in rendering more comfort
able our suffering soldiers, and in lilting
the hand of despotism from liis bleeding
country. He passed away on the 8th
day of May, 1806, a noble type of a
true and devoted patriot. R. W. II.
