Barr, in N. Y. Ledger. Ist 1.elanenu5. For the Herald and News. A REPLY Messrs. Editors : In your paper c le 23d ult., is a communicA.io gned "Peace." le says, "In 175 r '54, one hundred and thirty year go. George III., King of England ranted to John Adam Epting an hristian Dickert, the former a Lt ieran. the latter a Presbyterian, on unired acres of land." Instead of Christian Dickert. i as Peter Dickert, a German RE rmed, who came over to this cour -y with a colony of Germans. The ir >rmration has come from our for( ithers that they built a rude log cat , and did name it St. John's, i -hich house they worshipped'till thei umber increased so much that the entured to build, as they though fine house,-hewing the logs 6 b 0 inches, and dovetailing the co; ers in the old German style. Thi ouse was used until 1809; when b ter. Wallern's influence the presert t. John's church-building was ereci Wallern died about the year 1814 remember very well when Rex loser was sent here from the N. C ynod, about the year 1814, an hen he took charge of St. John's t. Jacob's and Zion's ch urches. HI reached at St. John's twice a monti -one sermon in English, and one il terman alternately. In his mothe >ngue (the German) he was consic red a very effective minister; not s ich so, however, in the Englis mguage. He was, nevertheless, ood Christian man. He served hi ongregations acceptably until 183( fter which time some began to fin nit with him on account of hi trict discipline. The dis-atisfactio aused some to become interestedi e doctrine of Universalism. Whie ev. Moser discovered that his seg ices were not agreeable to all, h iade arrangements with Rev. Drehe > attempt a reconciliation, in whmic ie latter was quite successful; fo e was considered one of the ables iinisters of that time. Mr. Drehe ;o my knowledge) never' was calle y the congregation of St. John's ut, after he had reunited the parties Ir. Moser desired to be alone in th ianagement of his congregationt hich some of his people with M )reher would not consent. This,c ourse, caused a new difficulty, whic sulted in the division of the churci oser preferred charges againt )reher,-accusing him of heresy,an rought it up before Synod which e: nerated him from the charges. Y4 om some cause Dreher was not sa fied, and withdrew from the S. C ynod, without, however, attachin imself to the Tennessee Synot either was there any objectiont is doctrine on the Lord's Supper, i s much as it was the same as the ~ught to-day by the S. C. Synod.] oser or Hope ever preached thz he bread and wine in the Lord' upper were simply emblems ot tb oy and blood of Christ, I cave Lought so ; and I have heard thet oth preach on the same subject. m confident that neither of ti bove-named ministers ever preaci d the Romish doctrine of transsul tantiation. "Peace,'' also says, "Some of ti 2embers suspecting that the Epting nd Dickerts might at some time a ert a claim to the Church land ui .er the title secured by their ance; ors, surves ed it in the night." ] ras not surveyed in the ilight ; ne her were any persons afraid of thes aen asserting any claim to the lan< ior was it through ignorance; f< hey, who surveyed it, were intel] ;ent, business men. One of them. ;ood surveyor, did the work, whit ared them f,rawirnanpre and OVE if the title was of no value, the su veving did no harm. I am truly so ry to hear my father and other goc men. now long in their graves, a cused of bei;g --Moonshiners. The )reher party really were callt Ilenkelites (of which ! hey wer - no as:amed): hut the other party wei not called -- Soaptails they went 1 the name - Sclboherites." I thin that -- 1 ace'- must surely have tai ufactured the name --Soaptail. Geo. Eichelberger was certainly whole souled nan, and advocate peace ;" but did not have anythin t do wIti efiecting a compromise. Tl Dreher party were ry,, willing t rive the other party half; but tiher nev'r was :n:v :reeiuent betwee them, about the time for tihe use the church. Somet may think from -- Peace's tisihnuationts that t :ere has been a pei heet )rivat:e war b,etw--n I bese partic at St.,io hn' or the i:lst ;ifty year: To prove tha' this t ;ot tie case. i is well known t.,.at im.,i aunis an w sisters an:1 hrot:ers. an neighbors have been on opposit sides, and still t.hey all were and ar lioilmd by the closest ties of friend ship and love. It is true, the-re ar so,ne thing"*s which oig ht. not to h. but I canot see w"here the lif;erenc is too gr.. ! : h - one an the same congregation All that can see is tiat the l)reher party cot fine themselves inore strictly :o t; (Galeshurg rules. Anl t:,- law sui that was rumored to have taken plac never resulted in anytin,, : and th o-e that is now pending never woul, have occurred if the ci.ngreation o the S. C. Synod had no: been locke, ou of the church If I ou a men her of the Tennessee Synod I ca but acknowledge in justice to the ol posite party, that they have .,orne a it becometh Christians, anl I see n reasons whatever why they should b -ashamed " of anything that has ur fort unately happened. The fine log church, of which have already spoken, was converte< into one among the best school house of that day. In that house, Ienr Nicholas and John Summer, togethe with other-s, were prepared for th South Carolina College. Dr. 0. E f Mayer, Sr., 1evs. Berly, Stingly an Lindler also received a good portioi cf their education there The church now standing is ai evidence of the intelligence :.n< energy of th')se good old Christal people livir nearly a century c Its dimensio:s are 30 by 50 feet; tih walls 20 feet high; the ceiling bc:n t beautifully r ched. There is not on piece of tim'er in the frame that wa sawed. Wh2n the building was las covered son:e of us estimated th rafters at about 2,000 feet of lumber There is not a plank in the buildin= more than 1:' feet long, it being th; r longest plan': that could be sawed o: S the mills of that time, (1809). Al the hin :es, f ! in number, and a grea Vmany o:f tl-a nails were made b; Capt. John Summer himself. with hi Shand hammier. The nails tha' were no Vmade by hin cost from 25 cents to 31 cents per pound. Notwithstandini its ancient a: chiteeture, it is one c the best houses of the kind in th State. If " Peace " k:iew the character of all these old i'3ople as well as Sdo he would pro .ably know that thle; were not all believers in witches an< conjuring, and were not by an; means such ignoramuses as he style Sthem. As theore has already been to rmuch said up;on the subject, at dii fereni jimes, I shall say no more now hence fecth and forever. May w Salways have peace. TRUTH. aPox&In, Nov. 5th, 1884.

At half-past 8 o'clock yesterday evening as the passenger train on the Sonth Caroline Itailway, due in Charleston at 9.38 o'clock, was run ning into Reeves's a misplaced switch threw it on the side track against a freight train. Both engines were smashed to atoms, ss the passenger train was running at a frightful rate, estimated at forty-five miles an hour. Engin eer J. C. Hunnicutt was instantly killed, being crashed into a jelly, and Fireman McKoy, colored, was badly injured. The passengers were jarred and thrown from their seats, but no harm was done to them. Tbe engineer and fireman were the only persons in jured. The body of the engineer and the wounded fireman came in on the train at 2.15 this morning. The engineer leaves a family in Atlanta, Georgia. 4 large crowd was at the Line street Station, not withstanding the unseasonable hour this morning to see the train come in. The body of the engineer was a ghastly sight and the fireman was moaning piteously. A passenger told a Reporter of the News and Courier that the effect of the jar was terrible, throwing people ten feet from their seats, and in some instances against the top of the car. Both engines and about twenty cars were wrecked.-News and Courier. "We must draw the line somewhere," remarked the washerwoman on Mon day morning, " and I guess the back yard is the best place." The cow-boy sleeps with his sad dle for his pillow wherever night overtakes him, eats at any camp where favor or fortune drives him, and in turn is ever ready to assist or divide with his fellowman-who perchance drops in on him, resting at his cabin or beneath the shade shelter of some trees, as the case may be. The genuine Texas cow boy was hardly ever known to do a mean or cowardly ast, but his reputation has been infringed upon -in fact, ruined-by desperadoes who know but little of cowboy life and magnanimity, but palm them selves off upon an unsuspecting public as man-eating, man-destroy ing cowboys from the outposts of Texas.

Most certainly, it was peculiarly interesting to see one so youthful, so pure and lovely, giving instructions with such a sweet and t winning grace, to a large class of her seniors, many of whom were hoary headed and even blind with age. Cultivating the talents and develop ing the mental faculties will invaria 1 bly elevate one to a certain degree of 1 superiority, as is exemplified in the t instance just related. But no less o talented and admired than Miss 3 Gibbes was Miss Bonham. The t Normal School is a inodel scol, and ) .of course a model school would have model teachers. Mies Bonbam was f not only a model teacher, but a model a woman. She was so refined, so so cial and sweet-tempered, so extreme a ly kind, who with any soul could help [ loving one so truly fascinating? If i a student love its teacher, or if its 1 teacher be even lovable, how much r better a student it will be! So many s dear children are forced, day after y day, to submit to the unkind and -even cruel impositions of a teacher, , cross by nature and soured by cir Scumstances. How sad for the little ones ! But sadder for you, my sister teacher, if instead of overcomning na ] ture, and being amiable and affection. ate, and establishing as yours true gentle-womanliness, you yield to pas sion and allow a rash, ill temper to t become your predominant character j istic. Your constant scholding and a fault-$nding will ruin forsver the t disposition of the children, and most e assuredly, you will be responsible. .Let us not only adopt Miss Bonham's model methods of teaching, but also .her gentle, sweet manner of speaking s and acting. Let's be kind. We r had not intended to write so much i of Misses Sonham and Gibbes, but i it is well known that when one is Sreally charmed, absent-mindedneM. .is natural. .Dr. Joynes and Prof. Woolwine .were grand men, (so were the other .professors) and South Carolina can well glory in the fact, that it has men of such superior talent and magnin a cent intellect at the head of its eda .cational interests. They are rapidly -elevating the standard of education, s and are revolutionizing this important matter, throughout the State. Bless f ings be on them in their noble work, a glorious consequences will undoubt , edly result. , During the Normal School, lectures -were given by different prominent Imen, and were attended by large .and appreciative audiences. The -- most interesting lecture was Gov. 3 Thompson's. One rarely hears such I a lecture. We are incompetent to if describe it, but will say, being the y man he is, enabled him to deliver the t lecture he did. He has so much L soul in him, so much noble manhood, so much of all that constitutes our Sideal man. Some may not know that SGov. Thompson organized the Teach Sera' Institute. It was four years , ago, when he was State Superinten y dent of Education. r Second in interest, was Mrs. Cha ,pin's, lecture on Temperance. She e was introduced hv a little Band of e Hope man, as "Mrs. Sallie F. Chapin 3 -.-not of Charleston, but of South d Carolina." "Her object in coming to Spartan -burg, was to meet tbe lady teachere d of the State. " o you, I come," she said "irn nnble sisters, and implore ered while othei s were asleep. Strange as this may seem it is only about two years ago that a party of four gentlemen entered one of the lowest of the Bowery Dives. It was near the hour of midnight and the proprietor was preparing to close. Among the painted and bedizened females who thronged the place was one whose brazen behavior chal lenged the sharpest criticismn. The gentlemen gazed at her intently and at last drew her into con versation in her native tongue German, and it was soon established that this wretched painted creature was the heiress to a vast fortune and a title besides. So infatuated was she with her vile life that it required all their powers of persuasion to in duce her to abandon it; at last she yielded, and in a couple of weeks after sailed for Germany to enter into her title and her vast posses sions. Stranger than all this is the impositions successfully practised year after year by clever swindlers, and the dear public seem never to tire of being gulled. Only a few years ago a magnific"nt Turk ap peared among us ; just imagine a most fascinating and engaging and deluding Turk. He was here to pur chase for the Turkish. government 500,000 stand of arms, 200 cannon and five million of rounds of fixed ammunition. He was a catch in a mercantile sense, and various large manufacturers sought his acquaint ance, loaded him with presents, and very humbly solicited his favor. More than one anxious mamma inquired how many wives he had on the Bos pborus, and if there were not more than five she was willing to let her; darling go. At any rate his magnifi cent 'lurkship had a jolly good time. He hived on the fat of the land, he wore the nobbiest of clothes, for the extent of his Turkish wardrobe was a dandy little fez; the rest of his costume beipg in the very height of the prevailing fashion clean down to his patent leather gaiters. This wicked Turk made love to all the pretty girls he met, and he promised at least a round dozen of them to re nounce Mohammadism and turn Christian for their sake. To make a long story short one morning he turned up missing; his hotel was out nearly $1000; he had borrowed right and left of every body who would lend, and even captured several diamond rings from the girls he had engaged himself to. Then on inquiry they found out what they might have found out before that the Turk was no Turk; but a very clever Jew who was well known in Constantinople, where he had been imprisoned for swindling, and more than once he had suffered from the bastinado. Fashionable society which had feted him was shocked-but it pocketed the insult.and imposition and said nothing about it; and waited for the next. He soon came in the person of an English nobleman, a regular tip top swell. He set up an establishment here that an English nobleman might envy. His coronet was on everything-his carriage, his paper and the buttons of his lackey's coat. His dog-cart was a sight, and it was said that his drag was the finest ever seen, but it hadn't arrived. He captured the town, painted it a bright vermillion, and succeeded in making himself a nine days wonder. He too has disappeared, and the places that knew him once will know him no more forever. Yours Truly, BROADBRIE[. Blind Tomn performed to a full house last Thursday night.

There is only one Blind Tom. He is genuine, and Is greeted with de light by crowded houses wherever he goes. The above notice is the first we liave seen intimating that there was a single person livin ashamed or afraid to acknowledg at he had been to one of these concerts. Blind Tom has been in Newberry twice. Both times he had full, paying houses. We hope be will live to come again. People ride a. long distance to hear him play. His Imitation of the music box, guitar, ora gan, and other instruments, is simply grand and remarkable. Then to thin1r of hisaccurate reproduction of thousands of the most difficult compositions of all the grand masters in the world. It Is beyond comprehension. This mysterions musical manifesta. tion beyond anythin the world had witnessed-a psycholgclmystery has appeared before the dle of thegreat cities of the world. His power is simply an exhibition of the power of mind over matter. His performance upon the piano p roves that all the senses are but a mo dification of the sense of touch. His re tentive faculties and his intuition aet with the rapidity of light and shatter, as It were, the darkness which envelopes him, by the splendor of his execution. Nothing in music upon the piano seems impossible to Tom. To play with both hands and sing at the same time, each key being distinct from the other, shows how wondrously kind nature, in her law of compensation and rewards, has been to this blind and almost idiotic creature.

Whatever else he may do. he is bound in the present election not to hide his light under a bushel. and it is safe to say in no campaign for twenty years has he shown mo,e energy tha:: in the pres ent one. 'l'hc Reverend gentleman has gone in to win and if Governor Cleveland does not reach the White House it will not be the fault of henry Ward Ieecher. In the ineantime. however. !'e is not reclining on a bed of roses; he ri'eeives letters by the bushel from all sorts of people, begging h;m to reconsider his determination to sup t,ort Governor Cleveland. As well mc:ight they try to :urn Nirgara with a pitc:tork or datu the great hikes w.th i.aystacks. as to turn HIenry W :r:i IBecher aside when he has male up his mind. Ile coies of a remarkably headlstrong family. His father before . him was constantly ioing -extraordinary things, and no sooner had his friends recovered from one snock than he gave thein another, the second generally being much worse than the first. Mr. Bee cher in his Friday night discourse ap peared to think that the difference of opinion i - the congregation was a v,ery slight affair and lie gave his ::ttditors to understand that in the thirty-eight years they had been as sociated together that he had always had his own way and he intended to have it to the last, or in other words he said to the people who are paying hun $25,000 for thirty-eight or forty week's work, if you don't like my way you may lump it, for I will have ii whether you like it or no. It was omirrous to look about the room, how ever, for faces were missing from last Friday night's meeting which have not been absent for years, not small men but those who have been re garded as the pillars of the church, who have been foremost in its coun cils and whose aid financialy has never been withheld. Their places were vacant, and though several of them turned up to prevent open scandal, yet the Friday night meet ing.is the social weekly event of Ply. mouth church, and from that they were conspicuously absent. During the week three of the pillars of the church have given the Plymouth pas tor a public excoriation. When men like S. V. White. Gen. Stewart Wood ford and A. W. Tenny speak out in meeting, it means something, and we will be better able to tell after election whether the defection is fa tal and permanent. Still Mr. Bee cher does not quail and at an Inde pendent meeting last week he struck back at his foes with a trenchant power that caused a tremendous rat tling among the dry bones. This election will be celebrated for years to come for the severing o' party ties and the sundering of old time friendships, to an extent never be fore experienced in our history. Some of the men who stood by the cradle of the Republican party are now the most ardent friends of the DemoQcratic candidate; and life-long Democrats whose fealty to the party was never suspected, are following the forlorn fortunes of Butler or are openly working for Blaine. A prog nostic as to results will be much safer on the fifth of November than on the third. It is the desire of every one that the whole affair was over. Whichever party wins, the election will have left a demoralizing effect behind, from which it will take us months to recover. One of the worst features of the campaign being the manner in which the most dis reputable elements colne to the sur face and assume an importance which is destructive of order and of law, Known criminals are publicly courted by the opposing candidates, and magistrates tremble in the pres ence of the thieves who are brought before them. The Judge on the bench and the rascal whom he sen tences are altogether too closely re lated. I don'tL know whether it would be any better to elect the judges for life ov during good behaviour ; one thing is very certain, and that is that nothing can be much worse than the present state of affairs. This is indeed a city of sharp con trasts. This week a Baron and Baroness have been discovered, the Baron working as a common laborer for a' dollar a day and the Baroness add ing to the family wealth by picking rags. These two were none of your bogus frauds either, but real simon p gre geuie old stock. The lady bor i a asleand in her girlhood waited on by an army of servants. The Baron too had his castle and re tainers, but he offended the Emperor by his marriage and he was banished from Court. Burning with revenge at his disgrace he joined a party of revolutionists, and on the defeat of his party was forced to fly the coun try. He reached the United States having little after paying his pas sage but his wife's jewels. They parted with these precious souvenirs one by one, till at last all were golfe. Neither of them had been brought up to labor and they could not seem to learn the language of our country, and their means being exhausted they sunk into the direst poverty. Hunger and misery drove the proud nobleman into the streets and after a time he got work as a common labor er. His wife looked with envy on the chiffoniers as they gathcred the rags in the streets. At last she took her sack and a hook and every morn ing when the shop girls and the me chanics are hastening to their work, the Baroness may be seen staggering along under her load of rags and imane, mnet of which hiae ha gii8,
