The correspondent of the Charleston

pen and ink sketch of tho two
most prominent, candidates for the office
of Associate Judge. It will be
noticed that Cain takes the side ol
To-day the Missionary Rccord (of
which Cain, tho "rolif-onu ?? ?
, ?? -' K/viiuvui j ur
Senator No. 2, from Charleston," is
nlitor,) was circulated, and one of its
Hlitorials upon "Tho Judgeship ?
SVhipper, "Wright, or who," created
considerable comment among tho legslalors,
and especially poor Whip/>er's
friends, because Cain unhesitatingly
asserts that Wright is entitled
.o the justiceship, and contends that
Shipper "has been amply rewarded
jy the party. He is the only colored
nan who has received the distinguished
honor of a position worth threo
.housand five hundred dollars a year,
is codifler of the laws of the Slate,
tie has been honored with a prominent
place in all the legislative a (fairs
>f this State. He will (ill the odice
>f codilier of the laws for four years,
vhich will givo him fourteen thousmd
dollars. If ho is not satisfied
villi that, then ho is a very unreasonible
man. We understand that he
vants to hold on to both positions,
odifier and judge."
Wright is a colored man who lisps
md is always in a good humor. He

during the war, and tamo into

ias, I am informed, made affidavit
lefore Magistrate Nash (colored sentor
from .Richland, that ho had
tudicd law for nine months before
lie war, and thereupon was permitcd
to practice in this State. As ri>.
;ards Whippcr's mental attainments,
Vright is his superior ; yet Whipper
ossesscd a great amount of shrewdess,
which coupled with an cxtraorinary
degree of persistance, would
?ako him about equsl with Wright in
1 any contest in their legal profusion.

this morning, about 1 o'clock, in tho 8
storo of 51. J*. Freidlcrger & Co., 1
| which destroyed property to tho val- '
! no of ?15,01^0 or 8120,000, beforo it
j could be cheeked. Tho cause of tho v

; building in -which it began was a two- 1
I story frame house, belonging to the 11
; estate of Daniel Carroll, deceased- v
The first floor was occupied as a dry ?
goods store by M. li. Friedlerger & 0
Co., and the second lloor as tho rcsi- 1
dencc of Mrs. Carroll, and as the sleep- 1
ing rooms of the members of the said
firm. Mrs. Carroll retired between 11 1
and 12 o'clok. Mr. Fricdlcrger and v
: Mr. Lucks, his partner, had gone to J
; their room about 10 o'clock. About c
! 1 o'clock Mrs. Carroll was awakened |1
j by the roaring of the flames, and at j c
! once aroused Mr. Fried lerger and Mr. ! '
; Lucks. The fire had then progressed j '
j loo far to allow them to save any j 1

Boys, Read This.
A few years ngo a large drug firm
n a city advertised for a boy. Next
lay the store was thronged with ap
ilieants, among them a queer looking
ittlo fellow, accompanied by a wonan
who proved to be his aunt, in
ieti of faithless parents, by whom ho
tad been abandoned. Looking nt
his little waif, the merchant in the
toro promptly said : "Can't take him
daces nil lull; besides, lie is too small." ,
I know ho is small," said tlio woman,
but he is willing and faithful." There
vas a twinkle in the boj-'s eye that
nadc the merchant think again. A
tartner in the firm volunteered to renark
that ho "did not see what they
van ted of such a boy?he wasn't bigger
than a pint of cider." JJut after j
onsultalion the boy was 6et to work.
V few days later a call was made on
he boys in the store for some one to
o slay all night. Tlio prompt rcs>onse
of the little fellow contrasted
veil with the reluctance of others,
ii the middle of tho night the niorhant
looked in to see if all was right
n the store, and presently discover(1
his youthful protege bus}' scissoring
abels. "What arc yon doing ?" said
ic. "I did not tell you to work
lights." "I know you did not tell
ne so, but I thought I might as well
>e doing something." In tho mowing
tho cashier got orders to "double
hat boy's wages, for he is willing."
Duly a few weeks elapsed before a
how of wild baasts passud through !
ho streets, anil, very naturally, all
lands in the store rushed to witness
he spectacle. A thief saw his opporunily,
and entered at (he rear door

Speech of Mr. Dawees upon Republican
, Onoofthe most remarkable speochcs
of the Session, is tbatof Mr.Dawea,
ouo of the ablest members of the Re
publica'i party in Congress, and chairman
of tho IIouro Committee on Appropriations.
He accuses his partyfaf
violating their pledges of retrenchment
and economy, mado in the last
Presidential election, and of going
beyond the extravagance which they
charged upon the administration of
Andrew Johnson. Tho very first estimates
of General Grant's administration,
he shows, arc %28.000,000, more
than they were in any year of Andrew
Johnson's; and the heads of departments
arc now proposing to spend
I ??SI year near ?&U,000,000 moro than
! was appropriated for tlio present
The N"cw York World proposes a
remedy for all this in a reduction of
tho taxes. But wo would supposo an
the power is equally in Congress, tbrrt
it would be more natural and equally
effective, to cut down the nppropriations.
Hear the World :
' The only sure way to euro such
reckless extravagance is by a reduction
of tho taxes. With an overflowing
.Treasury, there will never be any
end to prodigal and wasteful schemes.
Tho dishonest schemers understand
tho conditions of success; and tho
chief bamboozlcment of the last eight
or nine months has taken the form of a
d e v i ce for reconcil i ng tli cjp copl c.to h igh
taxes. "Unless a great deal of money
cenics into the Treasury, the plunders
cannot get a great deal out of it. They
1 have accordingly eung loud preans,
and mado them resound from end to
j end of the country, over Secretary
] Boutwcll's marvellous reductions
i of the public debt. The importance
of paying off the national
debt within a short period has been
j the great topic of tho thieves and
demagogues. All that they really
J care for is to Lave Ibc taxes kept tip
! so that there will' be no want of proi
vender in the public crib. The very
first opportunity, since the election,
I is seized to divert fifty millions a year
j of surplus taxes from the payment ofi
j tho debt into prodigal expenditure..
