is father having died in 1861. During the next four years Lieutenant Haltiwanger was engaged in school teaching in Edgefield and adjoining counties, after which he farmed for eight years in Lexington. Since 1881 he has been engaged in mercantile business and dealing in cotton at Columbia, and prospering, it is pleasing to note, in his various enterprises. By his marriage in 1869 to Mary Ellen Counts, he has seven children: Catherine E., wife of L. E. Barre; George W., Albert Claudius, James Hawkins, Harriet Estelle, Mary Ella, and Carl Abner. Two brothers of Lieutenant Haltiwanger were in the Confederate service: Albert J., in the quartermaster's department of the Twenty-fifth Georgia, and John J., who went out with the sixteenyear-old boys in 1864, in the Twenty-second South Carolina, and died from exposure at Charleston before the close of the year. Lieutenant James A. Hamilton, when the call to arms was sounded in January, 1861, left his plantation interests on Port Royal is
e was credited to be. He was quiet and reserved and an adept in settling his cases out of court. In his later days he was much troubled by deafness; his memory, however, to the last was acute, and his mind active and strong. On the establishment of the First District Court of East Middlesex in 1870, he was appointed associate justice—the precision, form and respect which he commanded while presiding in this court were remarkable. He was associated with John A. Bolles in the defence of James Hawkins indicted for murder, in which the court reversed the ruling in the famous Peter York case. Both cases are reported respectively in 9 Metcalf 93 and 3 Gray 464. He filled many official positions in the town faithfully and honorably, and up to the time of his death no one was more familiar with town affairs—particularly of the past—than the judge. He was a very well read man and a most pleasant conversationalist; his learning, keen intellect and many anecdotes made him a most desirabl<
Fatal accident. --The Ballsville (Ark.) independent Balance, of the 20th, has the following: On Friday morning, 27th ult., James Hawkins, a lad about twelve years of age, a nephew of Mrs. G. W. Daughtrey, of this place, was thrown from a horse, while riding out early in the morning, and instantly killed.--On being thrown, his feet was caught in the bridle in some way, and he was kicked several times by the horse and dragged over the re come fifty or seventy-five yards.

as might be that every ship, after the danger should be passed, was to return to its post and await his further orders. But it was useless in that moment of unreasoning panic to issue commands. The despised Gianibelli, who had met with so many rebuffs at Philip's court, and who, owing to official incredulity, had been but partially successful in his magnificent enterprise at Antwerp, had now inflicted more damage on Philip's armada than had hitherto been accomplished by Howard and Drake, Hawkins and Frobisher combined. So long as night and darkness lasted, the confusion and uproar continued. When the morning dawned, several of the Spanish vessels lay disabled, while the rest of the fleet was seen at a distance of two leagues from Calais, driving towards the Flemish coast. The author describes vividly the wreck, produced by this expedition of the fireships of the squadron of galeases, "the largest and most splendid vessel in the armada, the show-ship of the fleet, 'the ve
