GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE-SY NDCSIS.
Fiom the Ch::rle:tou e ws.
le advises the LegiJature tn provitle
fir an amendment to the Cunstitu:tion Of
the State in rogard to the District Con:ts;
which can be consummated at the next
session. He says the 3d article, limiting
the jurisdiction of these t ourts to colored
people, should never have been inco:"
rated into the 'o:stitution, and the
Legislature would then have been l-ft to
estabiish such superior and inferi:r
Courts as the interests of the State LOar
require. As. it is, the ('onsituition of
the State runs counter to the isation
of Congress. The Governor vie-s the
District Court only as an exeri ment ;
as indeed all legislation m:st be
ed that owes its existence to a state of
things consequent upon a revolation, nmi
made for a society in a state of transi;ion.
He advises the dispensig of G:1nd
Juries at the Dist: iet Court, and the
reduction of the venire for the Petit dv"
from 24 to 18, making the jaryd
less onerous, ar.d at the same tim avi
the State a larg, a:n'n: t of inu:y.
He makes several other recunania
t.ionsof salutary refr:s in the a1?ni:is
tration of justice; others in r.., ard to
Comwmissioners of Deds a:.. N:a: Is
He next refers to the i:nportan e of
-modifyinm the criminal law of the Suite.
n view of the estaM,ishment of a pen;tcn
tiary ; is opposed to public whipping at
the whipping-post; speaks of the ,nm
portanco of enforcing the law against
sheriffs and jailors, for tneglect of duty in
rllowing prisoners to escape from their
=custody. No less than seventy pr.o^ers
are said to. have esened in this S:ate
within the last few months.
He recommends the election for
- members of Congress to be held bienia'l,
on the day that members of the Gener:!
- Assembly are chosen, so that they will
take their seats in the December toi!uw
ing;-a nuch bettter arrangement than
formerly, when members were elect,1
fourteen months before they c+u!d take
4 aeir seats.
He next adverts to the transfer of
risdiction from the militarv to
vil autborit-v thinks th;t experi; :nce
ti:s far hasjustified the aciLon of th,
General Assembly in permitting acgroes
to testify in Court. From this the
Governor passes on to sneak on t
oubject of labor and the freedmen- t'at
he has discoura ged their migration, and
L.says: "If the negro remains here hi

ative to subsist and clothe him cnmforta

bahses for the accommodation and sub
.istence of aged, infirm and helpless
*Tbe next sub'ject of discussi ;n in the
Message is the revenue of the Sts.te.
From this we learn that the entire
- venue received into the treasury do ing
-the year, is $477,743.97 ; of this amount
there was in the treasury on the 31st
October, subjcct to draft, a balance of
$17,05.03, of which $73,245.35 was in

* ~anchanges in the matter ofta.xation ;
amn them a system of licenses and
stamp duties, and an income tax, which,
anaer existing internal revenue circum
4tees, we fear will net prove very
'patable to our citizens.

principal and interest, of this State, not
mcluzding the debts con tracted for er on
Heedent of th~e war, was, on the first day
- f October last, $5,205,227.74. T he Gi ov
eenor makes several recommendation:; in
reference to the arrangemen t of this debt,
and pro.vidin for the paymenat of p;rinci
psi and interest.
Th-~'e site selected by the Com.nission;
er-for the establishment of a peniten
* tiary is within the corporate limits of
golumbia, facing the cana', about half ai
* mife above the.depot of tne South Caro
Iia Riilroad. The architeet in charge
of the buildings, Captain T. B. Lee, is
confident tbat he will have ceils in leadi
ness by the first of January fur ther
ception of co,nvicts.
-Gov. Orr recom:r.ends lenmency and
forberance on the part of creditors to
debtons, in view of the bad crop; mn:ile
thisyear in almost every part of the
State. Hie again urges the aboition of
impr'soanent for debt. lie a'So re'om
mends the passirge of a IHemesteadi Law.
-.The Sout~h Carolina University is the
next topic adverted to in the Message.
There are at tresent sixty -five students
* in attendance. Governor Orr' recomn
*mends the appointment of two Professors
>r.the Medical School, and one of Law,
to. put those two departments into suc
cessful operaion. Ue.also advocat'es the
esjab!ishment of a professorship of Mod
er Languages, and recommends that the
Neard of Trustees be red uced from the
prsent unwieldy number to seven :nm
The Governor refers to the failure of
the legi.slative scheme for suipplying the
people with corn, and reco:mmnends a
-further consideration of the subj*ct.
A general Incorporation Act is strong
ly recommended in the Message.
The consideration of the Constitutional
Amendment, propnsed by Congress, next
engages the attention of the Governor.
lie treats it very briefly, seeming to
think it unnecessary to (10 more than re
capitulate the many strong argumenats al
re~ad'y brought against iq in which he
In conclusion, he says : "It is unneces
sary to dwell upon a subject which has
b)een so far decided by the public opinion
of the people of the State, that 1 amn
justified in saying that if the Constitu
tional Amendment is to be adopted, let
it be done by tihe irresponsible power a
numbers, and let us preserve our own
* self-respoc, and the respect of cur pos
terity, by refusing to be the mean instru
ments of our o.wn sh:ame.'
The Tax Collectors of many ofthe Dis
tricts ofthe State have, in comnplianice
with the resolutions of the Legia.ature,
made returns of the permanently disabled
soldiers in their respective Districts.
From these returns, we learn that Ander
