Second Week of Court.
The Court is still in session, Judgo MELTON and
the lawyers working hard upon the oivil dooket,
and making more impression upon it perhaps
than at any Term since the war. Last week was
pretty much devoted to criminal business. The
only case of cot?, however, was tho S ta to against
THOMAS LANIER for the killing of Jim Holmes,
colored, which ocenrred somo two or three years
ago. The jury after a few minutes absence, ac
quitted Mr. LANIER in toto.

turned the Inquest papers, the witnesses were not
in attendance, and the authorities generally who
should have attended to the preliminaries of the
case scorned to be at fault. All this is culpably
wrong. Tho murder of Mr. HARRISON was most
flagrant, and its punishment called for energy and
promptness on all sides.

they can do quito os well, if not botter, in Char

85?" The Columbia correspondent of the New
York .S"??, under date of tho Sth inst., says : "Gov.
Scott's Legislature adjourned early this morning
after an all-night session. Thc scene os the floor
of the House of Representatives just before the
adjournment was disgraceful. Drunken members,
thc majority cf them negroes, accompanied by
colored wemen of the lowest class, appeared on
thc floor and outraged tho decency of tho House
by ribald songs and indecent jokes. The appro
priation bill for paying the legislative expenses
of tho session, and which called for $2G5,000,
wu? vetoed by Gov. Scott, and contrary to expec
tation tho veto was sustained ; consequently the
State Treasurer cannot pay the mombers their
salaries and mileage."
A Dog-Fight in Congress.
The two dogs uro Grant aud Sumner-two regu
lar bull pups-and both " pisen." Sumner is un
inflated and high-handed mun, and, although a
Republican liko Grant, has set himself up against
the latter, und against his Administratien, and
aguinst his Cabinet, or.d against his pet scheme
of purchasing San Dumingo, and, trusting to his
mighty New England influence, has deported
himself haughtily and offensively. And for all
this, Grant hales him, and has hud him displaced
norn the highes.! and most important post in tho
Senate of tho United Statos-tho Chairmanship
of tu? Committee on Foreign Relations. In the
Senate, Committees aro elected instead of hoing
appointed, and when tho organization of the new
Congress came on, Grant had his men ready and
they boldly ousted Mr. Sumner, and, now liko
Nebuchadnezzar of old, who also becamo too
high and mighty, ho hus gone out to grass.
Tho fight in tho Senate was a hard and terrible
one, and tho occasion to thc Republican party, is
ono of unutterable fear and trembling. Tho feel
ing among leading Republicans soems to bo that
tho quarrel between tho President and Sumner,
though resulting in a victory for tho administra
tion, has been won at the cost of tho party. New
England is already furious, and the election, in
New Hampshire and Connecticut will be influenced
in favor of tho Democrats. So far, so good ! We
earnestly hopo tho two factions of tho Radical
party which will result from this split, will eat
each other entirely up, leaving not the paring of
a finger nuil.

ly the Grace o? God and Six Dollars
By the grace of God and six dollars a day, the
legislature of South Carolina has at last ad
ourncd. A nest of filthy cormorants, caring not
i jot or tittle for tho Interest bf tho Staid or peo
)lo so long as thoir insatiable'cravings for piun
ler were gratified. Under a white man's govern
nent an .annual tossion of three weeks was con
lidered amply sufficient for a Loghlature of
south Carolina, and tho members were allowed a
Der diom of only three dollars. The session just
jnded, lasted three months and a half, with a per
Hem of six dollars, and coat the State $260,000,
ictual outlay, in two appropriations, for the pay
rf per diem, mileage and employees of the two
House?, to say nothing of the Printing and
State-House swindles, and all tho other numerous
and nameless rascalities which were perpetrated
on a less extensivo scale. The members drew all
the time, even during the holidays, their six dol
lars a day, and did nothing in the way of useful
legislation. They displaced two of their own
juegos, whose bad habits-if they were bad, and
we are inclined to think they were-they knew
before they elected them ; and by impeachments,
and free fights, and wrangling*, and threatenings,
and bogus investigations of former Radical steal
ings, and burying colored martyrs with civic and
military honors, and erecting monuments to dead
negroes, and adjourning now and then to attend
horse races, and various other usoloss and shame
less doings, they managed to indefinitely protract
tho session and deplete the State treasury.
Last year when tho opposition party was urg
ing the nccossity for reduced tnxation and econo
my, the Radicals admitted it al!, and declared
their purpose to secure these results to tho State.
And what is the upshot? They hove been infin
itely more lavish with the publio money than
ever before, and their tax bill for the current
year is much heavier than the last, although it is
well known that the peoplo of the Sute aro wo

If the blacks of San Domingo are sensible,
they will steer clear of Grant's commission and
Grant's government, for they may judge from
the condition of thia State what their own fute
will be if ever taken under the Radical wing. A
select number of " the saints" will make fortunes,
but the poor devils who inhabit tho land will be
made to mourn.
And amidst all this ruin and corruption, tho white
population is powerless to- interfere, and looks en
and suffers in silence. No word oven of remon
strance or protest is now heard, but the State
staggers and roels under tho crushing wrong.
Emigration of the better classes to other States
steadily increases, and those who cannot get away
submit with resignation, but show a mental and
financial depression which premises little for the
future. ' Nor, as wo have said abovo, will the ne
groes escape the penalties of such wretched mis
rule. Every planter driven from tho State makes
one employor less. And driving away capital in
tensifies the poverty of the blacks.
The commonwealth of South Carolina is much
poorer to-day than at the close of tho war, and
this year will bo ono of greater suffering and
trial to the peoplo, white and black, than any
since the surrender. Business is dull to stagna
tion, apd the future which looms up under such
a regime is not ono to invite or encourage enter
prise of any kind.
It is not well for the peoplo of South Carolina
to submit to all these wrongs too silently and too

Gov. Scott, in his application to President
Grant for troops to tend to the " rebellious dis
tricts," says that the members of tho Legislature,
just previous to their adjournmont,?binployed
pickets to guard tho roads and railroads leading
to their homes lest tho Ku Klux should capture
them. And well might wretches with such guilty
consciences take such precautions! for if there
was f er a gang of dirty thieves and robber* who
deserved to be caught and punished by the Ku

And Now at This Late Day. r.
And now at this Ute day, a light Jua shined
about the path of the Daily Union, the Scott-Ring,
organ in Columbia, causing it to turn 'away its
eyes from such incendiary agitators as Joe Crews,
and Whipper, and Elliott and Holden aid Kirk,
and speak thus :
If the leading citizens of South Carolina, like.
Judge Orr, General McGowan, General Kershaw,
General Butler and Judge Melton, will consult
with, the Governor, and .discuss fully and" freely
the prosent distracted condition of the State, we
make no donbt that some means can bo devised
that will bring peace and order, whore now reigns
nothing but turmoil, outrage and bloodshed.
? Bah ! the Union is perhaps happy to speak of
" turmoil, outrage and , bloodshed,".and to inti
mate that the white people of '.South Carolina are
making violent movements in the way of retalia
tion and revenge, t his sort' of thing pleases its
friends at th? North, -and the party which it en
dorses. But tho fact is, that many of the people
of South Carolina, instead of making movements
of retaliation and revenge, (God knows they have
had enough to incite them' to such !) are making
a muoh more serious movement of gathering np
the little the Radical party hag left them, and
quietly quitting a State so degraded and so ac
cursed. And many other.- feel that they have
inooumbed to Radical oppression as long as human
nature can stand it They are completely hacked
to the wall now, and must resist or die.
The suggestion, however, letit come from whom
it may, of a conference of prominent and trait
worthy men of the State with Gov. Scott, is not a
bad one. And we are glad to read that several
prominent citizens of Charleston have already
gone to Columbia for this purpose, and that del
egations from various parts of the State will be
present and participate in the Conference. Gov.
Scott undoubtedly seems disposed to turn.over a
new leaf. Bnt for any good to come ont of this
conference, the Governor mnst be prepared to
givo the said prominent and trustworthy citizens
much more credence and confidence than he has
accorded them on previous occasions.
? ? ? ?
?&* The fact is now very apparent to eur
mind, (says the Union Time?,) that the two races
cannot live peaceably together and the country
prosper, particularly with the inferior race aa tho
governing power. It is an unnatural position for
eithor, and the white and tax paying race will
not longer submit to the degradation. The white
people of the South have exhibited more forbear
ance than we supposed they possessed ; but the
results of this unnatural position are fast culmi
nating in corrupt'legislation, taxing one portion
to keep np the extravagant government of the
other, disorder and riots throughout tho land.
Foroo cannot reconcile the opposing parties,
there must be a change in the governing power.
That alone will ensure a permanent peace. The
Northern poople would not submit for one month,
to the humiliation and oppression which the South
ern people have patiently suffered for five years.
It is inhuman to ask it, and disgraceful to tho
nation that forces it upon any part of her citizens.

MARRIED, on Thursday morning, tho 2d of
March, at the residence of the Bride's father, by
the Rev. J A. Mood, Mr. JAMES CULBREATH,
of Edgefield, and Miss ABBIE MERCHANT,
DIED, at her residence, Bosolands, Edgefield,
Mrs. MARY PARSONS BROOKS, aged 10 yoars.
A brief notice of this excellent lady may not
be without profit With unusual personal attrac
tions were united uncommon intellectual gifts,
which were highly improved and cultivated. Her
taste directed ber to the Beautiful wherever it
was to be found, and it is no figure of speech to
say that she was ever in the search of it.
To her oyo how full of beauty was this vast
creation, and how often,' whon unseen by others,
was it unfolding itself in somo of its many and
diversified forms ! This was woll known to all
who had much intercourse with her, or who had
the pleasure of seeing the, works of her brush
and pencil; her many beautiful Sketches and
Paintings. And to this taste she ministered to
the last One of her Landscapes painted iu her
old age was on exhibition at the last State Agri
cultural Fair and attracted general admiration.
No lady was more conspicuous in the refined
society of Edgefield Village when she resided in
it, and none did more to give to it its high char
acter for culture and hospitality. This hospitali
ty, this cordial welcoming of her friends to her
house, was a distinguishing feature in her char
acter. It followed her to her country-home where
she so freely disponsed it to the last In this
connection it is well to alludo to the little Church
Edifice which she erected near her dwelling, and
which had many of the embellishments which a
refined taste could give it Here from time to
timo the minister of?God hold worship, and the
good lady openod her doors to all who could be
induced to partake of her hospitality. How
sweet the memory of these occasions, how beauti
ful the commingling of a pure devotional senti
mont with tho kindly officos of friond and neigh
Mrs. B. lived the full term of days, and in its
course experienced her share of pain and sorrow,
of trouble, and disappointment She had in turn
to commit to the tomb a beloved son, who fell on
the battle-field of Mexico, her honored husband,
her noble son the Hon. PRESTON BROOKS, and
recently a beloved and only daughter, Mrs. Du NO
YANT. What, a commentary npon life-upon
length of years ! To what trials was she sub
jected, and with what truth could she repeat the
words of the Psalmist that " the best of our days
aro but labor and sorrow."
With such a load of affliction, had she looked
to earth for comfort sho would have been misera
ble ; but she enjoyed life to the last. An old
author regards certain pictures with two faces as
emblematic of Death; tho ono representing the
most horrid and repulsivo features, the other the
most lovely and beautiful scenes. So with Death.
It may be painted with a fearful conntenance, a
lean body, iron hands that ravish us from our
goods and our honors, divide our persons, and
drag our bodios into a loathsamo sepulchre. This
is o view which makes as fear and tremble. But
wo may look upon it as a merciful Deliverer that
breaks our chains to pieces, and elovates our souls
to the highest glory and happiness. In this case
nothing is more lovely than Death, and moro to
bo desired. This is thc side of tho picture on
which the oyo of this estimablo Lady was accus
tomed to dwell. It is the Christiana's view. He
enters the path which the Prophets, the Apostles,
and the iavoritcs-of Heaven havo trodden beforo
him ; ho is introduced to " tho innumerable Com
pany of Angels," to " the general assembly and
Church of th ) first born," and to tho spirits of
"just men made perfect"
Oh, thc delightful re-unions brought ?bout by
Death ! Husbands and wives, and parents and
children again will meet;'our ashes will be min
gled with tho ashos of ancestors, and kindred and
friends, and we will share with them the repose of
the grave. Death is* now without his sting, the
gravo without its victory. So long in tho Com
munion of the Church, and steadily sustained by
its cheering hopos and promises, she was without
fear, and patiently awn i tod the honr of her de
liverance. Not with her, as with so many, did
Death make his noiseless advances and '' approach
with feet of wool." She was long the subject of
incurablo disease ; she could see its progress, and
knew that soon she must lay aside this tabernacle
of the flesh. But she was comforted by tho
knowledge that if our oarthly house of this tab
ernacle were dissolved wo havo a "building of
God, a houso not made with hands, eternal in the
Heavens." Unterrifiod could sho drink of the
cup of which He drank, and pass through thc
volo which Ho had honored and sanctified by His
The Word of God shall stand forever, and that
Word has declared that thoy who have "washed
their robes and made them white in the blood of
tho Lamb uro passed from death to life, and shall
die no more." " They aro boforo tho Throne of
God, and serve Him day and night in his Temple,
and Ile that sitteth on the Throne shall dwell
Travellers are sLways liable to sudden allacks of
Dysentery and Cholera Morbus, and those occurring
wiien absent from home, are very unpleasant. The
PAIN KILLER may always be relied upon In such cases.
.As soon as you feel the symptoms, take one teaspoonful
In a gill of new milk and molasses and a gill of hot
water, stir well together and drink hot Kepeat the
dose everv hour until relieved. If the pains be severe,
bathe the bowels and buck with tho medicine clear.

Cheering Facts for the Bilious.
Every dty demonstrates moro clearly that liver com
plaint, in all Hs distressing form?, can bc controlled and
cured Without difficulty or inconvenience. It is an ob
stinate disease, but its obstinacy is nut proof against the
pertinacious, remedial und restorative operation of Hos
teller's Stomach Bitters. That genial corrective comprit
the organ to do it? duty. It rnW secrete regularly and
healthfully under the influence of Ibo Bitters. Their
action brings it back from a slate of rebellion into per
fect harmony with the laws nf healih. If there is cos
tiveness, it disappears ; if there is side-ache or backache,
lt csases; If the skin and thc whites of the eyes are tinged
wllh superfluous bile, they recover their natural hue ; if
the appetite is gone, lt Munn; If the digestion Is impaired,
it is restored ; in brief, whatever the symptoms of the
complaint may be, and whatever the phaso it has as
sumed, a cure ii certain. Such are the uniform effects
of this dreporaliou where bilious disease has been al
ready developed ; bnt in cases where there ls merely a
constitutional tendency to liver complaint, it may be
prevented throughout life by the regular use, in small
quantities, of this palatable antidote. These arc proven
facts, and should be seriously pondered-or, rather, they
should be promptly acted upon-by all persons of bilious

The Cottou Tax Before the Supreme
The Augusta Chronicle <?? Sentinel gays : " From
the tolegraph:c dispatches as to thu decision of
the Supreme Court in the case of Farrington vs.
Sanford, involving the constitutionality of thc
cotton lax law, the opinion foetus to havo exten
sively obtained that the Court decided in favor of
its constitationality. Suoh is not the case. The
Court was equally divided on. the question, and,
therefore, really made no decision. That division,
by oporation of law, left tho decision of the Court
below to stand. In a word, it was a drawn battle,
and tho door of redross by Congress is left open
to the Southern cotton tax-payers, and we hope
they will promptly send forward their claims to
Herschel V. Johnson & Co. Th-re is every reason
to hope for justice at the hands of Congress."
