COM'MBIA, S. S., July 17, 18/S.
MESSRS. EDITORS:-I notice in your
last issue, that of the ll?h iJstmt, 0
communication in which the writer com
ment*, amongst other things, upon itu
C >urts of General Sessions.. JLIir article
plainly shows that tho people feel deeply
fae unjust burden they have to bear in
the payment of the expenses of these
Courts ; but, it also show, that they do
not know where the seat of the trou bb
is, or bow to obtain relief This sam."
birden is hmi.o and felt by tho people o:
the entire State ; and it is to be hope?;
that the next General Assembly wil
consider tho evil, and apply thc reined}
necessary to its removal. The member*
of the Legislature have hitherto labored
under many disadvantages, and had .<
number of matters to engage thoir at
tentions; but, when they meet again, i:
will be their imperative duty to revi?
the criminal law of tho State. I have
not time now to poiut out its radical de
fee ts ; but 1 suggest to the good people
that the criminals should tic made to pay
thc expenses of their conviction Until
this be done, I know not how any ade
quate relief can bc had. as the evil is a
the very foundation of our laws. Oui
people, as a general thing, are conserva
t'ive, and have a desire to adhere to ole!
laws and traci ioi s: and lhere may bi
some who will oppose any change. This
desire springs from a noble sentiment ;
but circumstances have changed, and i:
would be worse than folly should we re
fuse to alter our laws so as to meet UK
changes of the period. Beforo tho lat?
war, the Court of Sessions was held onh
twice a year in each County : and then,
too, thc colored defendants were ?ried ii
fie Magistrate's Courts ; but, now, w<
hive three terms of said Cuirts in ead.
County, and they arc crowded with col
ored defendants, thus making the busi
ness at least four times as much ?nd th?
expenses proportionately greater. And
all this, while our people are not foul
times as able to pay ! Indeed, while Ibei
are at least four times less abie! It is
simply shameful ! Eut, let us not blaim
e ich other for " the ills we bear ;"' let ut
11? n rather bo charitable and generous
and go to work to revise a id re-invigo
rate our law3 so as to promote the wel
fare of the whole people, white un i col
ored. And I know of nothing, whicl
the Legislature can do, that would si
much benefit our poverty stricken Stat
as tn j,;:ss an Act requiring poisons con
vjcted of crimo to. be,r ^??^V.1''/. - P*r3
.vi,\ : 'iiijii, and in tl elan lt of payment. :
labor at a certain price per day until th
fine is thereby paid ; and aldo be sei'
tenccd to imprisonment at haid labor;
certain period for the crime itself. Am
then, as the Counties are already bodir
cTpi-ratc and politic, another Statu)
should be made enabling each of th**n
to work ai.d manage their own c uivic*
If sue i laws wore enacted. iheO?unii<

C i ir mais There ure many laws of th i
character which could bc passed, um
the peop. rtlieved of burdensome taxa
tion. As to salaries and fees of officer*
thi?y seoul-1 oe regulated by the ol.
standard, in my judgment. Tbeyshouii
bejust what they were before the Radi
cds took charge of our State and bc-f >r<
the war, as cotton, the chief product o
the State, is now selling for i:s old priers
and the costs of living are not ni ucl
greater. But our people will make ?
g.-ave mistake if they reduce salarie.
and fees below what they were befon
the war. In that case, only those who
are rich, and thoso who are trilling, cai
a.Tord to hold ellice. The law is mon
important to the people than most of u
conceive, and should be much mon
prized and reverenced than it is; unt!
they need the best talent thei- can com
mand to enact and administer it, provi
ded that talent has honesty coupled with
it, without which it is nothing. Them
aro however certain regulations which
should be mado in regard lo fees. In
some of the Counties tho Clerk of tht
Court gets more foi his services thar,
t ie Judge of the Circuit and over twice
at much as the Solicitor. This, of course,
is absurd, and should be remedied.

jokes and entertain a crowd by such pas
times, for whilo thero is no b?rip i> . b
jection to such humorous enjoyments,
let them come in their proj er places
Southern people aro so prone to sympa
thise with each other, that such a charac
ter in a man often leads ono wir.y.
But rather let us look tor the- man wini
has always honor, dignity, and m ra,
courage, who cannot bo led astray hom
performing his d?ty as to the wants ol
his impoverished country Ile is tho
mau that our forefathers Ibu -n t and ui?;i)
for, and whose type has been bunded
down to their posterity, lie is thu mun
whom our wives, our daughters aud our
sous ask us to-day lo elect-that we
may be honored by turning over to them
a government pure and uudehled. We
undoubtedly have good mea before'us.
Some 01 them can be judged by their
conduct in tho Confederate war. lt is
our duty to Stand by such men : s we re

Country's Cause ! ;Sueh jneii are.rev-j

We also have good men before us who
ivero too young to take a part in our
lost causo ; yet we must scrutinize th m,
weigh them weil and give them a fair
trial. Those we should judge by their
morse in our unsuccessful war with the
North arc those who \\ t. old enough, yet
feared to risk their precious selves in
doing their duty. Keep such me? ai home'
Also let us see that wo put in office
none but true and tried Democrats : not
men who were hanging on thc fence,
as rags, during Radical rule i'i our
County and State, turning either side
the wind blew strongest. Such officers
would be dangerous. Wo may say to
ourselves the campaign of *7G gave such
a terrible blow to Radicalism that !!ic
party is dead, but hewars ; tak? c muse 1

and-water men tu represent us in n ir
Legislature. Mark it, if we do, that be
fore the next two years roll over us?
Radicalism will have its "venom langs
into tho life spring of our liberties."
We should also look to the mora; char
acter of the man's life. A ni in of g > >d
morals commands the respect o' every
one ; nor need we be ashamed of such a
Representative though lie be nut a Cal
houn. If we wish our County to com

by the Rev. S. P. H. Ellwell, after which
the little boys were calied up by tht
teacher, and examined in orthography

cillent examination, and made a display
ol'proficiency uncommon in our common
Schools. Tho larger girls were then
c.lied and examined in geography,

did their teacher and themselves much
credit. Miss Carrie Harrison read a com

latnrdly and gracefully.
The School exercises being ended, Mr.
Charlie Creighton was introduci il lu th
ludience. Ho made a telling speech
.vhich sunk deep into the heart of every
one present, lie spoke of the great
ben lits of an education and the pleas
ures derived from intellectual accom
plishment. Ho said our future success
as a people depended on the education
of our youth, and dwelt largely upon
other topics connected with his great
theme. His speech was repleto with
good suggestions for common Schools
The next Speaker introduced wa; the
Rev S. P. H. Ellwell. He also spoke
of the great necessity of educating tl e
youth, SQd said their minds should be
cultivated morally as well as aesthetical
ly. He spoke impressively ol' the re
sponsibility resting upon teachers a?
well as parents ; and being an Irishmai.
his speech abounded in witticisms. His
effort was a capital one.
Dinner was then annotiuced, to which
all were kindly invited ; and a finer re
past was seldom il ever enjoyed by any
peopl-i After dinner the exercises were
again resumed at the School-house. The
Kev. Mr. Ellwell now addressed the
little children and told them he d d not
ask their attention, that if ho could
not catch and hold it, he was not
worthy of it. He said many things that
interested an 1 pleased tho little ono
very much. Speeches were then made
by Dr. Strom, Mr. Denny, and others.
They all acquitted themselves willi credit
on the very important subjects of educa
tion and politics! Xow, Messrs. Editors,
thus ended the day's oxorri-o*. Ami
truly a noble ?lay it was. Nothing hap
pened to mar the peace or happiness nf

happiest good taste. Andi had almost

"DEMOCRAT'' AGAIN OX THE
MKSSBS EDITORS :--'V Vorboten Sat"
proposes to the people to bring out other
candidates to be voted Tor within the
patti/ and by tho persons to whom the
privilege is limited by the Eighth Ar
ticle of ibo Constitution. " Democrat"
amends by suggesting that tho issue be
made and submitted to the same voters
What treason ts there in this? " Demo
crat" aays that wtion wo aocopt office} or
ask for ofiice, or vote under this article,
wr are hound by it, unless wc vote strong
nnongh against it to repeal it.
T there any treason in this? Is it
treason to differ In opinion, or is tho
treason only in darius to speak it out?
Now all "Democrat" asks is that the
people have tho opportunity of voting
upon this article, which was an innova
tion upon the platform nf the party nf
the County and State, which opportunity
they have not yet hail. There is a divis
ion in opinion, Messrs. E li tors, among
tho Democrats of the County, and we
propose sottlinc that difference within the
parti/, and leaving no excuse for " Indo
pendents," which will be thc inevitable
result of a denial of and opportunity to
test the question whether the majority
ol' the voters, under this Sth A Hiele, ap
prove of tho secession of the party of
the County from the rest of tho party in
the State, and in tho Congressional and
Judical Circuit to which we are attached,
or not, and thereby jeopardizing the
election of our candidate for Congress in
the ensuing election.
All the opponents of this article desire,
is this opportunity. If that is given by
" the powers that be," wc will acquiesce
in the result, be it for or against us.
Tuc editorial in thc Monitor, is thc
first and only indication, from any one
who is in position, tint thoro was the
lea<t hopo of having this question sub
mitted to the people through official
channels, and I am so exceedingly anx
ious that tho people have tho opportuni
ty of expressing their opinion quietly
and dispassionately upon this question,
that I forego any reply to " One of the
People," at ; nj' rate for the present
There is certainly a radical difference
of opinion between him and other mern?
hers of the Convention as to the circum
stances attending the adoption of ?he
Sth Article. Il matters not who may bo
right., as to them it is certain that tho
people have never had the opportunity
of voting upon this issue, tither direct
ly or indirectly. Let the County Ex
ecutive Committee adopt the suggestion
of the Monitor, and of "Pro Bono Pub
lien," and elvo , ns .this ? ?uno ri ut: il v
r -.*? uiuiuit- ui tull1 gales lo a

[? tent, if this is done and the decision bc

to east ou." vote for thc Congres* ional and
nil the Democratic candidates. If the
decision bc with us, we not only pl ge
?hisA-o'.e, but all the votes weean inllu
coc" from "our friends, the ii^irroes."
VVWnn't promise any by "intimidation,'"
jf.rwOHtid every other mun in Edge
j tif-ld. except "Oneof the People,"' know
j that "our friends, the nogro"*" don't "in
j ti m ?dale worth a cent," and that there
?a-e hundreds of "Democratic cotton
j planters"' who will employ ?di th-se who
! lose their homes for not " intimidating."
And right Isero wo will say for tin
hem lil of " One of the People" that WC
areno " cotton pl an tor" and never ex
pect to be a candidate, having reached
! thc proscribed age for office in Edge
I field, nor are any of our " kin" at. pres
ent candidates, nor ave we advised that
i any of thom have-any aspirations that
j way. We have iived too long to have
jany confidence in "intimidation" or
"seven to eight commissions," or desire
1 to see that which is behind all this (and
which is the >lTro?f?tn horse") cn graf oed
upon the politics and all the relations ol

Wo have confidence in the motto "di

policy which "welds" and consolidator

MRS. ALICK ATKIN*?, wife of John

Death is tho natural consequence nf
life, and is an ordeal through which the
whole human family must eventually
pass: still when >t comes to tho young,
fender, and beautiful, while we acknowl
edge Cod's wisdom, wo fail to compre
hend his object in cutting off those who
have just begun to live.
Such was tho subject of this notice; al
most at the very threshold nf woman
hood. ' ie rod of ailiictinn was waved
heavily over her, ami for many week?*
she suffered without a murmur, and with
christian resignation, the almost lode
scribahle torture and pain which Cod
had placed upon her. when at last the
frail cord which bound her to earth was
severed, her spirit passed peacefully and
quietly back to the Cod who gave it.
While her death was not unexpected
by those to whom she was dear, yet
when tile supremo moment came, when
told that she was dead, thc deep and ir
repressible grief of a fond and devoted
husband and father seemed almost to
sever their heart-string-'. And to her
young and only sister, whose constant
caro and * itrils at her bed side, had well
nigh exhausted ber strength, it came
like an avalanche almost consuming thc
little strength she had left.
Friends, tender and kind, moved
around amid tho sad scene, offering
every sympathy and consolation.
Just a few short years before, they had
