which the battle-scarred, earthquake-shaken

und Beauregai'd built aud armed nearly a
nuurter of a century ago. Approaching the
bank lapped by the lazy wavelets of the
Ashley, these traces of the defensive works
of that era run northward of a peaceful
Curving ground in which the drooping
branches of the magnolia and palmetto trees
sweep the tops of the stones that record the
names of men and women who have found
rest beneath that sod in the generations that
have passed since the stalwart and splendid
Huguenot pilgrims who had escaped Car
riers massacre established the city and the
State. A perpetual peace dwells upon the
snot the fragrance of roses and magnolias
perfumes the atmosphere; the remnants of
the forts have been smoothed by the indom
itable hand of time into fitting semblance
with the scene; it is difficult even to find
upon the veterans of the arboreal growth
the scars of the shot and shell that once
whistled and screamed from the great guns
of Dalfivren’s monitors and Gilmore s bat
teries over this lovely God’s Acre of the
Southern land; and between the leafage of
the sturdy trees the visitor catches glimpses
of famous old St. Michael’s spire and all the
broad aud beautiful vista of river, city and
sea that extends to the horizon of the At

etery of Christ Church parish around
which Beauregard drew his military lines of
circunivallation, and so brought the rude
and noisy bustle of war into intrusion upon
the everlasting sleep of South Carolinians
who hail preached nullification and talked
States’ rights five lustrums before speech
became powder and shot and bloodshed.

: y Ul3 A RET PICKENS De ROCHELLE. :
Pec. 24, 1864.
When South Carolina seceded from the
Union and lit the fires of civil war her Gov
ernor was Francis W. Pickens a member of
the slave-holding aristocracy that boasted of
its blue blood, and, like the feudal system
of which it was a modem simulacrum, de
veliwed noble and admirable types of men
and women. To that rank Gov. Pickens
wai entitled, and of all the fair and lovable
wonen to whom his distinguished family
hah given birth no one was sweeter or more
beiutiful than the daughter who, when Maj.
Aiderson lowered the flag on Sumter, was
budding into a charming womanhood. It
lies been truly said that the war was pro
loaged by the courage and persistency with
which the women of the South imbued the
pen. No history has ever adequately told
tie sacrifices that they made, the sufferings
Gat they patiently endured to cheer and
jrompt the soldiers and sailors who served
inderthe banner of the lost cause. No
where between the Potomac and the Mex
ican Gulf was their spirit of unswerving de
votion more manifest and active than in the
capital of the Keystone State of the South
ern Confederacy; aud there was no patriotic
project mooted in which women could share
o which Margaret Pickens did not con-
A TYPE OF SOUTHERN BEAUTY.
Turning back to the Charleston newspa
pers of the war epoch, her name is found
ft hundred times upon their worn and fading
pages. In 1862 the women of the city turned
their jewelry, their diamonds —gems that
had come down to them from their Hugue
not and English ancestors—their silver plate
and innumerable articles of bric-a-brac —
into the money that paid for the ironclad
ship-of-war Palmetto State, that on January
81,1863, sunk the United States gunboat
Mercedita in a battle in Charleston narbor.
In the enterprise of raising the construction
fund Margaret Pickens was proficient and
untiring. She stripped herself of her jew
elry, and she figured in a leading capacity
r.t the fair or bazar at which the women
sold their treasures that the “ladies’ gun
boat” might be built. A bright young Eng
lishman who had come into Charleston as
an officer of one of the blockade runners saw
fcr on that occasion and worshiped her
through the medium of a letter to a friend
in Liverpool, that found its way into the
columns of the Liverpool Mercury. 110
"I have seen to-night the loveliest girl that

THE EVE OF MARRIAGE.
The Pickens family mansion vOus within
the line of fire front the Federal batteries,
and months previously had Iteeu abandoned.
Miss Pickens had been received into the resi
dence of her relative, Gen. Rhett, which was
sunposed to be beyond the range of their
guns, and had so far escaped being hit by
a: yof the monstrous projectiles that flew
into the city. On Christmas eve the wed
ding party were assembled in the parlor of
the Khett mansion, one of the targe and
handsome houses so common on all the river
frontage of old Charleston. Divested of its
costly and elaborate decorations that had
gone to swell this or that Confederate fund,
the great room looked barren, chilly and
forbidding. Candles were almost an unat
tainable luxury then—the city gas works
had long been wrecked by exploding shells
—and some home-made device of illumina
tion only lit up the little space occupied by
the lover and bride and clergyman. Save
for the brilliant uniform of the soldier anil
the white robes of the priest of the Episco
pal Church, there seemed no color or warmth
in the apartment. Finery appropriate to
the wedding ceremonies of distinguished
people w as not to lie found in the Confederacy,
and while the dozen of guests were men and
women who had known the opulent and
luxurious life of good society in the ante
betlum days of Charleston they were row
reduced to homespuns and coarse cottons.
With the harsh discordance of the bom
bardment filling their ears, and with the
knowledge that the bridegroom must at
once quit his wife’s side for service with his
command, a sense of apprehension and sor
row brooded over the assemblage. The
most serene and self-possessed of all present,
the newspaper reports said, was Miss Pick
ens, whose slately lioauty was heightened
by contrast with the surroundings.
WHEN THE SHELL BURST.
The clergyman’s voice broke the silence of
the gi oup with the reading of the marriage
form, and he had just reached the interroga
tories when the horrible roar of a shell
vastly louder than those flying over the dis
tant sections of the city drowned every
other sound. It came from an advanced
battery that Geu. Foster had recently
opened well up on the inner side of Morris
Island and within a four-mile range of the
Rhett residence. The 200 pounds of iron
loaded with incendiary material described a
trajectory that ended upon the roof of the
house, from whence it crashed through the
intermediate floors and burst in the midst of
the wedding party.
When the stifling smoke hail cleared away
and men could breathe free from the suf
focating fumes of the powder, the apart
ment—its walls and ceiling being partly
blown out, its furniture knocked into chips,
blood spattered everywhere, fragments of
human forms strewing the floors —was a
scene of indescribable terror. Three of the
wedding guests had been instantly killed,
and not a person in the room had escaped
injury of some sort. Lieut, de Rochelle and
the clergyman were only slightly hurt, but
Miss Pickens was prostrate and saturated
with the that streamed from where
her shoulder had been cruelly torn by a
fragment of the shell. A surgeon pro
nounced her dead, but w hen she was laid
upon a couch she slightly revived and en
deavored to speak, each heave of her breast
causing the blood to flow' in an increasing
De Rochelle approached her side and
placed his ear close to the lips that were
painfully struggling to utter intelligible
words. Her eyes sought the clergyman with
a look that begged him to draw' nigh. He
did so, and De Rochelle, catching as by
inspiration her meaning, asked her if she
would have the remainder of the ceremony
performed before she died. Again she made
the effort to speak and failed, and the sur
geon warned them that her life was ebbing
fast; but the consent which she could not
voice found expression in an inflection of
Then the clergyman, with his robe stained
from the wound he had received, stood over
the couch of the dying woman w hose hand
had sought that of her lover, and proceeded
with the reading of the holy ritual in the
apartment from which the slain had not yet
been removed, and where the blood was still
fresh and reeking. When he put the ques
tion whether she w'ould have the man beside
her for her wedded husband her attempt to
answer brought, on the paroxysms of mortal
dissolution. Foam flecked her lips and her
face became ashen gray, but with a final
and supreme exertion' she murmured, “I
will.’” Christmas came in at midnight
with the thundering diapason of the never
silent cannonade, and the morning sun
broke upon the dead face of Margaret Pick
ens de Rochelle. And this is the story told
by the marble in the Christ church home of
the silent majority and remembered by
Charlestonians unforgetful of the beauty
and grace of the daughter of South Caro
lina's first war Governor.
HE APED THE PARSON TO HIS FACE.
A Baptist Church Torn into Factions
by an Elocutionist’s Joko.
From the Few York Morning Journal.
Philadelphia, April SU. —The congrega
tion of the Spruce street Baptist church is
at daggers drawn. The trouble had its
birth during a recent entertainment in aid
of the Sunday school library fund. It was
a musical and literary entertainment, and
one of the chief features was readings and
recitations by a certain Prof. McCuen, an
The professor was warmly received, and
each effort was applauded to the echo. At
length he announced that he would depict
several styles of preachers.
He started off with what was considered
a capital representation of the Southern
negro parson, giving the dialect admirably
and delivering a short discourse that was in
Then ho essayed two or three other imita-
tions, each characteristic in its way, and
concluded with a picture of the preacher
from the backwoods of the wild West —the
preacher wiio lacks education, hut who has
receiv'd what ho believes to be a call from
on high to go forth and preach the gospel,
and has gone and done his lest. W hen he
announced this imitation there was a flurry
hi the congregation. It at once struck the
memoers of the church that the mimic was
about to strike near home.
The pastor, the Rev. Charles W'. Thomas,
i seeiin., is just tic sort of preacher the pro
fessor described, a man who ,Ic]lends more
on his apt and original similes, his tors.*,
homely expounding of the truth than upon
colic " training or deep learning.
He, too. came in on the West, having for
merly been, lie, .ting to all reports, a
sturdy hlacksinitl , who was culled from his
place at the anvil to point out the way of
When, therefore, the professor announced
his concluding character the congregation
took a long breath and waited ex|ieetttut!y.
Their fears were realized. 1 lie imitation
of tlicir pastor was true to life; it trifle ex
aggerated, perhaps, “ little bit caric’tturtsl,

THE MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 1887.
Struck a Pocket.
Prom the Overland Monthly.
However it might be, the tiding of a
pocket struck at the southern bonier of Ihe
canyon flew hither and thither with unex
plainable celerity; and about midday, when
as usual Mark should have 1 ui unobserved,
except perhaps by one or two of his own
party, upon chancing to look up from the
bottom of his pit, he saw that quite a little
fringe of spectators hart collected around the
edge of lbs claim and were intently observ
ing his labors
“Turning out trumps, i.4 it ;” said a sol
emn, sallow-faced man, breaking the
silence. “The very place I thought of dig
ging in, myself—only I didn’t.” j
Upon that, one or two others in substance/
said the same thing. In fact it was aston -j
ishing to find how many men there wore whd
had originally comtemplated locating upon
that very 10 feet, square of valley-bed, Dui
somehow had neglected to do so, after all
Now with bitter regret and self-objurgatio*
they mourned over their ill fortune; and I
the present operation should turn out favor
ably, there was no doubt that each one It
them would thenceforth treasure up tie
matter As au additional grievance, addiig
it to sundry other instances wherein he im
agined that, he had made hair-breadth es
capes from affluence.
Meanwhile, as the new-s continued to
spread still more widely, the little crowd of
spectators constantly increased, and (he
place grew clamorous with criticism and
suggestion;almost at once broken in lijon
by a cry of surprise as, at the bottom! of
the pit, Redfern was seen lifting up to the
light a piece of nearlj- six ounces, just un
earthed by a fortunate stroke of the pic*.
Upon this, a tall, dark man, who kitjier
to had not spoken, became aroused into Hid
den action and clambered hastily down into
the hole. .
“You don’t know mo,” he said to Mirk,
“but that does not matter. Have only just
come in from the Stanislaus. There 1 tad a
good stroke of work, netting SB,OOO. .Be
fore that was at Mariposa, and there lost a
little. A good stroke of work I say; buj, to
tell the truth, I don’t work at all. I trfcvel
around, and look where others are digging;
and when I see what seems a good location,
I buy it up on speculation if I can, and hire
someone rise to finish cleaning it out foi'me.
Sometimes I make and sometimes 1 lose; but
more often I make, for I have a pretty good
eye at a bargain —Now then, how much will
you sell out for*”
“How much will you give" said Mark.
“For as I have not put the claim into the
market, I take it that you should fix a value
upon it yourself”
“Right said the man. “Well then, will
$5,000 do it?”
Mark paused and pondered.
Story of a Murder.
Prom the Harrisburg (Penn.) Telegraph.
“Some years ago,” said the old attorney,
as he tilted back in his chair and put his feet
on the table to rest himself, “there was a
murder trial in Harrisburg, and I was as
signed with another attorney to defend the
men ou trial. They had killed an old fanner
—a most unprovoked and cruel murder,
from which they reaped no plunder—and
while we defended them to the best of our
ability the evidence was against us; they
were convicted and sentenced to bo bang'd.
Just before the execution one of the con
demned men confessed the murder to me
and told me that while he was one of the
active participants, yet the awful job had
been put up by his condemned partner and
a man who was at large in the streets of
Harrisburg. He told how the fellow who
was not arrested had planned the murder,
arranged all the preliminaries, and then
sent him and his companion todo the crime.
Furthermore, he told me that this same man
who got off the train late at night into a
wagon ou pretense of taking him to the
place he was seeking and, instead of doing
so, took him across the canal bridge at
Market street, knocked him on the head,
robbed him, and then buried the body in
Cameron’s woods, near the Poorbouse. Ho
gave the exact location of the burial, and a
party of men made search, but could find no
“While i believe the man was telling the
truth, yet I think ho was mistaken as to the
location of the burial. The men were hanged,
and in time forgotten. One day I stood ou
the hack porch of my residence, when the
rear gate to the yard opened and there step
ped in the man who had planned the murder
for which my client was executed. He did
not see me, and he slouched up through the
yard, looking furtively right and left, but
not ahead. As he neared the porch he look
ed up and his eyes mrt mine. He halted as
if paralyzed, and if ever a colored man
turned white that man did. He grew ashy
pale, his limbs trembled, he did not sav a
word. He turned face to the gate, hobbled
slowly down the yard, went out and closed
the gate aud the scene ended. I hadn’t saida
word to him.
“Why did he do so? The wretch knew
that the man who was hanged had told me
all about the murder, and my unexpected
appearance had made him completely
terror-stricken. Yes, the man is still
living. Let him live. There is a here
after. Have a light—your cigar has gone
There are more things, etc., Horatio, etc.
