The Charleston Judgeship.
The Republican membersof the Leg
islature commit- a fatal error, if they
suppiefit only persons of wealth
and influence are deeply interested in
the charaifer of the persons who may
be elevated to the Bench in.this State.
It is true that particular citizens of
high !tion, who have made them
selves eonspicuous by the persistency
of their ppositionto corrupt practices,
may beig1ed.out as shining marks
by aay Judge who is so weak or so
willing that the cliques who elect him
can do with him as they will. And
-wh a judge, may, at critical moments,
exert 'his official power in behalf of
some man or some set of men whose
crimes arm known, and who have no
hope of escaping punishment except
by stavibg off investigation and trial.
Beyou& this-the persecution of par
ticular inembers of the Opposition
and the, protection of conspicuous
thieves in the ruling party-there is
nothing for any honest citizen to gain,
while there is everything to lose, by
the election of any as Judge who is
eithef ignorant or corrupt, the slave of
passion. or the servant of party.
A Judge who can be used to-day for
what seems, in a party sense, a good
purpose, can be used to-morrow for a
bad purpose. What Republican who
opposes the Charleston Ring can have
a fail trial, if he be indicted by a Ring
Solicitor, tried by a Ring Jury, and
sentenced by a Ring Judge? This
danger is one which confronts every
citizen. Unless the Judge be up
right and learned, no man is safe. The
peril to the humbler citizen is more
imminent than to the man of wealth.
The poor man cannot employ counsel
to expose the machinations of his ene
mies; nor can he exert a back stairs
influence which, in these latter days,
is potent with the aspiring Judge.
The rich man has, at his command,
the learning and forensic ability which
only money can buy, besides the indi
rect bribery of social influence and so
cial recognition. All the way through,
the rich, where courts are venal or vin
dictive, have advantages which the
poor, because they are poor, cannot
possess. The rich may escape, but
the poor cannot. For the poor, and
the majority of Republicans are poor,
it is of the first consequence that a
Judge be high-minded and capable;
especially in Charleston County where
party spirit has run high, and the
Radicals, who constitute the Ring,
have been defeated, at the polls, by
the Republicans who desire Honesty
We have no particular candidate to
urge upon the attention of the Gener
al Assembly. We know that there is
little hope of the election of such a
man as him who, with ermine all un
stained, was on Saturday gathered to
his fathers. But we have the right
to ask, in the name of the influential
and rich,that theJudge tobe chosen on
Friday be a man of good standing, of
irreproachable antecedents, and of re
spectable ability.-News & Courier.
How Much Was He Worth?
The following which we take from
"Good Words," is well worth atten
tive perusal and earnest thongt.
"How much was he worth ?" is a ques
tion which will come home to many
hieapers up of gold. Ponder it well,
There is a terrible significance in
the question we sometimes ask, upon
the death of a wealthy man, if we only
understood the real significance of the
question. "How much was he worth?"
we ask. And the angels might reply :
"Worth ? He wasn't worth anything.
His money was worth something, his
body is worth something as a source
of fertility to the soil; but he wasn't
worth anything." So we vary the
question : '-Yes, but how much did
he leave ?" it might be answered.
"Yes, I will tell you. He had houses,
lots, bonds, stocks, gold, notes, mer
chandise, farms; and he left them
all-he carried nothing with him.
Naked and destitute came he into the
world, and as naked and destitute did
lie go the way whence he came. He
carried uothing-neither land or mon
ey; nor yet did he carry with him the
blessings of the poor. He left all; he
carried nothing away with him."
But his neighbor has died-a man
who was not knmown on 'Change, nor in
the tax list. 'And what has he left?"
we may say, or, perhaps, curiously ask.
"Left? He has left nothing; but he
has taken much with him. He has
gone to Heaven laden with the bless
ings and gratitude of the poor, of the
helpless, of the young, of the ted, of
the widow, of the friendless ; of those
whom he, by his counsels, and his
acts, and his prayers, had blessed, of
those whose poverty he had enlighten
ed, whose darkness he had dispelled,
whose bodies and souls he had fed."
When Wilberforce d i e d. Daniel
O'Connell said, "He has gone up to
heaven bears g a million broken fet
ters in his hand." Happy he, what.
ever he may leave, or may not leave
on earth, who goes thus freighted intc
the other world.
PROPOSED CIVL RIGHTs CoMrRO.
NIsE.-A Washington letter says:
"The advocates of the civil rights bill
finding themselves confronted by the
Executive veto should they persist in
carrying that odious measure through
Congress, are now talking of a com
promise of some of the more radical
features proposed in the original bill
in hopes of forcing some action befor
the expiration of the present Congress
As an offset to the mixed-school ques.
tion they propose to set apart the pro.
eeeds of the sales of the public lands,
which shall constitute an educational
fund. The amount thus accumulated
they propose shall be distributed
among the States on the basis of illite
racy. Under this arrangement the
States of the South would receive the
largest share, and provisions would be
incorporated so as to enforce in an in,
direct manner, at the cost of the
government, what they have beer
frustrated in carrying through to the
sure destruction of the public school
system of the United States. The op.
ponents of any Congressional interfer
ence in the matter of schools, with the
aid of the Democratic vote, will doubt.
Sk as be abl.e to defeat any such appli
cation of the public money. It is
> wisely feared that the application of
the moneys as stated would establish
a system as extravagant and glaring
in corruption as the defunct Freed

The Baptist Convention.
In a notice which appeared in the
last issue of this paper, relating to the
recent Baptist Convention, which con- ar
vened in Chester, there were some iu
accuracies, for the setting right of is
which we are indebtad to a reader of h
the HERALD. -,9 follows:
The recent Convention of Baptists do
at Chester was not the Southern Bap- de
tist Convention, which embraces all the tai
Southern States, but the Baptist Con- YO
vention of South Carolina. de
The endowment proposed to be no
raised for Furman University, at Green- an
ville, S. C., by the Convention, is two mi
hundred thousand dollars, of which h
sum one hundred and eighty-five
thousand has already been given in
bonds, but as due allowance should be
made in so large a sum for doubtful t
bonds, it is proposed to secure fifty th
thousand dollars in addition to what
has already been given, by the Ist of
January, 1876, so that the University
may have a bona fide endowment of th
at least two hundred thousand dollars. b
The commodious buildings (erected
before the war) and the real estate of
the University are considered well A
worth fifty thousand dollars. ed
In addition to the above we have he
been informed that it is proposed, if R
the endowment fund can be raised, to
throw the University open free to sku- fo
dents for a period of ten years 1
The Promised Reform. qu
The fair promises of reform made st
before th. election, and the subsequent 4.
promises of Mr. Chamberlain in his hi
inaugural have been gladly received. w,
Hope has sprung up in every heart, h
and there is a disposition to extend H
to him that sympathy and kindness of h
feeling which was not accorded to his A
prede,cessors, and the withholding of pe
which was constantly made a subject ti<
of complaint by Ex-Gov. Scott. His D
eminent abilities are conceded by all, di
it is thought that he not only seesel
where the reform should commence, cc
but has the disposition to commence t
and carry it out. This is what the at
people stood ready to believe after o
reading his admirable inaugural ,and a
still hope to realize.
The question now is, will all these
fair promises be carried out, or was
his first speech a mere show of words
only intended to make an impression
for a brief time. We trust the latter
may not be experienced. It is said H
by some that he cannot go back on the
party which elected him, and that
those men who worked the hardest to o
put him in office are those who will be
appointed to positions of trust and
profit. This is a dangerous principle,
and one which cannot be executed
honestly and with justice to the peo- t
ple whose interests are at stake, and to
who to some extent at least should be t
considered. We trust this is not the e
principle which will govern Mr. Chain
berlaiu, but that he will endeavor to e
do that which will subserve to the h
greatest good; a course which will
gain him the respect and good will of cB
the State and the gratitude of her c

he larger the fund to be (Iistributed in ;iftN,
lie greater will he the gift awarded to each
iekv tick,-Aolder and the more the amount
eaiized by the Library. To have a fulldraw -
nz is so nanifestly to the interest of those
nterested, that, rather than have a fractional
rawing on the 30th inst., I deem it due to
be tras' confided to me b tieckr-t-hoders
mL the Pubic Library of Kentucky, that a
hort postponement be madule to etable Me 14)
lispose of the unsold tickets, and have a full
Irawing. Though the very large amittnt
low in bank would enable us to distib:1ute
iandscme gifts, yet we should feel disap
>ointed in this our lst concert, should wve be
onpelli-d to make a fractional drawing,
We hve received so very large a number

hose most largely interested, wigini a po+.t
ionement if all tile tickets be not sold by the
M,lh. that we feel btrengtbened in otr sene
iutv to the ticket-bolders and the Pelie
library, to make the postponement. 1-ider
he circumstances, we h:jve determined, in
he interest of all parries, to postronc the
r.ncert and drawing to StVar:tY, February
7. 18r75, at which time the drawing wO, poK
ively take place; and, %s a gitarantee of
pod faith toward ticker-holders. we pledie
mrselves to refund to atiy ticket-holder his
noney, upon presentation of his tiker,

hmy now fixed. The past, we feel :ssured,
vill be sufficient guarmtee to all iitere ted
