PICKENS- S. C.
IMI ARP TAIKS OF R. E. LEE.
He Met the General on Two Oc
casions During the Civil War
and Was Imnpressed With His
" Duty is the sublimiest word in our
language." That is what General Lee
wrote to his son soon after General
Scott offered him the supreme com
mand -A the Northern army. Virginia
had just seceded and Lee saw on one
side that there were no honors to which
he might not aspire. On the other
side, if he cast his destiny with that of
his State, he saw, or he thought he
saw, that miseries and trials awaited
him without number. But to seek his
duty and, having found it, it was ever
the principle of his actions. These
strong and beautiful words about dlty'
were not original with General Lee,
and in his letter he has them in quota
tion marks. The expressioi came from
Rev. John Davenport, a famois Purli
tan preacher of New Eing-iat'l-and it
man who gave shelter to the thrzee reg
gicides who condemne(ied Charh lI the
First to death anel after the restoration
fled for their lives to New Englmati
and were iuddei by donli I)ave nport
in his barn. When tiis act of treas ton
became ki >win among his people Ie
ncitherIquiailed nor releit ed but preachi
edi a sermon the iexL Sabbath frol
that passage in Isaialh wIiich says:
" lide the outcasts. lietray not hiti
that wandereth. ILt Iimy oltelasts
dwell with thee and h1o thou covert
unto them fromn the spoiler.'" It w;as
in that serlon thai1t he made use of this
notable expresion: " It, is my duty
to shield the m, ai dtify is the su1bli
met, word in our language.'"
During the war it was my privilegee
to see General Lce (uite oft en, buL
never did I met hiun face to face atnd
have a brief colversationl with him) but
twice. Even thieni we did not kniow
how great a namlie was. General

The Virginia-Carolina Chemical
Company Replies to the Attorney
ps General of the 8tate.
Attorney General Bellingor sont a
special message to the General Assembly
last week, asking that the charter of the <
Virginia-Carolina Chemical coiipany be
revoked in this State, and gave as the
principal reason for this course that the
company had;petition for the removal of
Its case to the Federal courts. The re
ply of the company is interesting and
entirely on the defensive, and it is con
tained in a letter sent to the individual
members of the Logislature, as follows:
