William N. is a student of Clemson college, in the class of 1899. Miss H. Lula is a teacher in Rockhill college. Joel Hough Joel Hough was born in Chesterfield county, S. C., May 24, 1841, and in 1846 his parents removed to Kershaw county, where he received his education. The ancestors of the Hough family came to America inoring settlements and brought the required aid. The grandfather of Mr. Hough served in the Revolutionary war; and his father, Joseph Hough, moved in 1836 to Chesterfield county, and after an honorable career as a citizen died in Kershaw county in 1851. Mr. Hough entered the Confederate service before he reached his majority and serin the Hill-Orr drug company, of Anderson. Murdoch James Outlaw, a brave Confederate orderly-sergeant in many battles, and often wounded, was born in Chesterfield county, S.

amden, and there it was that Dr. Porter nursed him. After leaving Cheraw we had a pretty hot skirmish at Rockingham, N. C., and the next day charged a regiment of cavalry, just after they had opened a barrel of wine. I led this charge, simply because I lost control of my horse—he being young and afraid of a gun—fortunately our men, making as much noise as they did, created a panic among the Yankees and they stampeded, thereby saving me from death or capture. While our command was in Chesterfield county, Pink Brantley, General Butler's orderly, got permission to visit the house of a friend, where the Yankees captured General Butler's satchel, containing among other things his comb and brush, and old Pink, too. While we felt sorry for Pink we could not refrain from laughing when we heard of it, because when Pink left us he said no ten or fifteen Yankees could catch him, he knew the country too well, he was raised there. Little did he think that he would be raised again so soon by the

Roster of the Alstadt Grays. Owing to the large number still living in Chesterfield county, and to the relatives and families of many who are no more, Mr. W. B. Ashbrooke has compiled a roster of the famous Alstadt Grays, who were mustered in and about Manchester. The Grays belonged to Mahone's Brigade, of Anderson's Division, of A. P. Hill's Corps, of the Army of Northern Virginia. They were mustered into service on May 24, 1861. They surrendered at Appomattox. They took part in the charge of Mahone's Division at the battle of the Crater. The membership of the company, as compiled, reads as follows: Captain, E. H. Flournoy; First Lieutenant, Charles Friend; Second Lieutenant, Samuel Flournoy; Third Lieutenant, David M. Goode; First Sergeant, Charles Fossey; Second Sergeant, Samuel Woodfin; Third Sergeant, J. W. Jones; Fourth Sergeant, George Woodfin; First Corporal, Cornelius Wilkinson; Second Corporal, Wesley Rudd; Third Corporal, Joseph Dorsett; Fourth Corporal, C
Constable elected. --An election took place for Constable in District No. 1 of Chesterfield county, on Saturday last, resulting as follows: S. T. Hancock 224, W. J. Anderson 89, Thos. Blunt 14.
Secession flag Raising. --A large number of citizens, resident in the neighborhood of "Skin quarter," in Chesterfield county, raised a secession flag on the 14th inst., amid the firing of guns and other demonstrations of joy. Samuel Flournoy addressed the assemblage, (a large majority of which is stated to have been composed of recent Union men,) in favor of a Southern Confederacy. The flag bears seven stars, and an inscription of "Secession per se," and "Southern Confederacy." The movement originated with a prominent opponent of the Secession candidates at the last election.
Chesterfield county. --Monday being Court day, a large crowd assembled at the Court-House. After justice had been dispensed to several offenders, the tribunal adjourned, and a meeting was organized for the purpose of ascertaining the views of the people on the great question now agitating the public mind. Resolutions were introduced by Col. R Watkins instructing their Delegate to the State Convention to vote for an Ordinance of Secession. C. C. McRae, Esq., vigorously opposed their adoption, (which a correspondent says "caused a little confusion occasionally.")--The resolutions were carried in the affirmative, some dozen negative votes only having been given in. The resolves will be published. Our correspondent thinks that Mr. McRae made a good speech — as good as could be made, considering the side he was on; but that it was the wrong side, and could do no good.--He adds that the eyes of the people of Chesterfield are being opened to the importance of the secession issue —
Destructive fire in Chesterfield county. --We learn that the large grist and saw-mill, also the fixtures for making barrels by machinery, belonging to John Bradley, all situated on Swift Creek, were totally consumed by fire an Sunday night last; also two large and costly granaries, with their contents. The whole loss is supposed to be about $8,000, and was undoubtedly the work of an incendiary. In consequence of the fire the militia of the county have been ordered out to do patrol duty.

r. James B. Vaughan, who stated therein that he had good reason to believe that George Howlett, Wilson Howlett, Peter Howlett, Becky Howlett, Sarah Howlett, Margaret Howlett, (free,) Martin, Jim Wortham, Philip Randall, Warner Clarke, Laura Rhodes, and Robertson Shuter, (slaves,) did, on the night of Thursday, December 27th, meet at the kitchen of said Jas. B. Vaughan, and did, then and there, talk of and make arrangements for an insurrection against the white inhabitants of the county of Chesterfield. Philip Randall, an old negro owned by Mr. Wm. Gray, appeared to be most deeply implicated in the use of incendiary expressions.--Fanny Tucker, slave of Mr. Vaughn, who "blowed" on the negroes, testified that there was a party at Mr. V.'s on last Thursday night; while there her cousin Martha. (owned by Vaughn) asked Phil had he heard the news just brought from Richmond by Sarah, (another of Vaughn's negroes,) to the effect that a great crowd of people was standing around the telegra

as been consecrated by no muse, whose memory has been preserved by no monument, whose death was only chronicled in the dispatch of the day. The officer to whom we allude was Major John Fluming, of the 4th Virginia Regiment of the line, commanded by Colonel, afterwards General, Chas. Scott, one of the bravest officers of the revolutionary army. He belonged to the old Virginia family of Flemings, who have been in the country, we believe, ever since the 17th century, and was a native of Chesterfield county. One of his brothers, Col. Chas. Fleming, served gallantly throughout the war, and survived it many years. Another was the venerable Judge Wm. Fleming, for many years President of the Court of Appeals. These Flemings, we believe, were descendants of Pocahontas, and therefore related to a large number of families in Virginia. But the name was at one time in danger of becoming extinct, the late Tarlton Fleming, of Goochland, being, after the death of Judge Fleming, the only one who b
