e said: I said on the 17th of December last, on an occasion similar to this, that true South Carolina stood alone, but in this there was nothing to fear, for she had on a memorable occasion prevat if we had to fight for our independence again that the battle should be fought and won by South Carolina alone, upon the same bloody field where she had fought for her independence in the days of hur regiments and our men were concerned, the triumphs of this day have been due literally to South Carolina troops alone. [The applause was so great at this time that it was some moments before Gov. the Governor) by way of exultation, but as due to the truth of history, and I say it because South Carolina has been peculiarly singled out and a bused and traduced and sneezed at as being too weak and defied them upon their sought and chosen battle field. And now I here, in the name of South Carolina, return the gratitude of the State to those gallant and intelligent officers who have come f
South Carolina spirit. --A stalwart company from Lancaster, South Carolina, arrived in Charleston last Friday. It is stated that in the ranks, as privates, there are to be found Senators, members of the Legislature and of the State Convention. Five local lawyers and five practising physicians are also privates in the same company. Three privates are said to represent one million of dollars, besides several others worth from one to two hundred thousand dollars each.
ickenson, Booker, (member of the House of Delegates from the county,) T. T. Tredway and others, all right out and out Secessionists; and every word in regard to the glorious attitude of the Southern Confederacy was greeted with tremendous applause, and the cheers for the Southern Confederacy fairly rent the air. At night about 80 or 100 of the students turned out to serenade the prominent men on the hill. At the U. T. Seminary, Prof. T. E. Peck was called out, and paid a high tribute to South Carolina, the land of his birth; then we next serenaded Dr. F. B. Watkins, who has heretofore been the strongest Union man in our midst. In his speech he declared that it would be madness and folly, disgrace and cowardice, to remain in the Union, and said that our destiny was with the South. His effort was a fine one, and showed that, though the grey hairs had covered his head, yet he still had the vigor and spirit of youth. We next found ourselves in front of the residence of Rev. Ro. L. Dabn
the North, through its man, Lincoln, fitted and sent out an armament of ships, and several thousand men, for the reinforcement of Anderson in his insulting position. The fleet arrived, and presented themselves in the offing, ready to steam in under the guns of Sumter, at the first moment of opportunity. It was as if a man was coming upon you with his rifle cocked, and pointed at your heart, ready to pull the trigger. These were the circumstances of the aggression and the assault, when South Carolina fired the first gun. If she were an individual under indictment for manslaughter, she would be acquitted by any jury in the land, as acting in strict self- defence. She is acquitted, before the bar of public opinion, of this assault. It came from the other side, and after long, patient and unreciprocated forbearance, she resented the aggression, and took her own fort. And this is the outrage which the Northern wolf is now preparing to punish. This is the wrong and the insult that
elsewhere in the Confederacy. I heard some Virginians to-day laughing heartily at one of the telegrams to the effect that a requisition was to be made on Virginia for 8,000 men to aid in coercion. Examining the baggage is one of the new institutions that has come in with the new Confederacy, and as I was too late for the combat, you must take a description of this in place of more interesting matter. It does not occur directly upon your crossing the line between North Carolina and South Carolina--You are allowed to go on until you reach Florence, S. C., which is the inspection point. The cars run up to a tall pole, bearing the flag of the Confederate States. Then comes the revenue inspector, a good looking, polite young fellow, who calls out for passengers to hand over the keys of their baggage. Each trunk is taken out of the baggage car, and its owner furnishes the key and aids the inspector in turning up the contents, and satisfies him that there is nothing contraband in th
