A PAPER FOR THE PEOPLE.
The Herald is in the highest respect a Fam
ily Newspaper, devoted to the material in
terests or the people of this County and the
State. It circulates extensively. and as an
Advertisin- medium offers unrivalled ad
vantages. 'or Terms, see first page.
What is to Be Done.
The quarrel between the seaboard
and the mountains is settled by the
late election. Let every one under
stand at the beginning that Moses and
Whipper shall NOT take their seats.
As they have courted investigation
let them have it. If they can be cou
victed of crimes which would disable
them from holding office let suits * be
instituted. If Solicitors and Grand
Juries connive let the old Judges who
fill unexpired terms take their seats
to which they are said to be entitled
under the law for four years, be pro
tected in their action, and let the
newly elected judges oust them by a
quo warrento,, if they can. Being no
lawyer we submit the above point with
diffidence. If that won't work, let
us meet and consult.
The International Review.
The above Bi-monthly Magazine
has superior claims to the considera
tion of the student and general reader
who desires to be kept au fait from
reliable sources with~~ihe important
events in the world of Politics, Reli
gion and Science. The interests of
the different nations have become so
interwoven that what is spoken in
France has its influence in Japan, and
what is discovered in Berlin may open
new fields of industry in Colorado.
In the forthcoming January number
the complicated Herzegovinian ques
tion and Draper's"History of the Con
flict between Science and Religion" will
be fully treated by competent writers.
Proctor will teach us starry lessons,
and "Psychology of Murder" will give
the most advanced doctrines of insan
ity in its legal application. Other in
teresting articles and a full review -of
current events will be found in its
pages. Subscription $5.00.
Our Judges,' Oh.
On last Thursday the curtain rose
on the most disgraceful scene that was
ever enacted in Legislative Hall. If
anything could exceed the disgrace of
the.result of the performance it is the
manner in which it was put on the
boards. The only thing to be ad
mired is the rapidity with which at
one rehearsal the actors learnt their
parts so that not the least prompting
was. needed when the play was pre
sented to the public. The resolution
passed by th.e Senate to have an elec
tion for Judges on Thursday, the 16th,
was sent to the House for concurrent
action. The House laid the resolution
on the table on Wednesday, the 15th,
with the distinct mental reservation
hat it, should be taken up next
day when the indignant glance and
withering speech of the Governor
could not shame them into de
cency ; they knew he had an engage
ment at Greenville, and they insidious
ly lulled his suspicions to sleep by
tabling the resolution. Determined
as they were to carry theiinfamous
designs into execution, confident in
their triumph-as iio veto could be
*interposed to their action-still they
were afraid of being cowed in the
presence of the stern magistrate who
had so nobiy battled for their rights
but would not support them in their
*Whipper, Moses, Jr., and Mackey ;
lovely trio. How glad they should
have felt to be let alone and be allow
ed to retire into obscurity with the in
difference if not the forgiveness of the
decent people of the State. But now,
as they have been thrust into high
places, an investigation into their for.
mer actions may still save us from the
curse of their judicial administration.
There is many a slip between the cup
and the lip; and we have abiding
hope that the old adage may be veri
fied, strengthened and enlarged by its
application to the above named trio.
OJf Wiggins we know nothing, but
we hold that he would not spoil
the fair proportions of a quartette.
We would state distinctly that we have
no remarks to make as to the election
-of any cormpetent and honest Judge
who way have slipped in-we speak
of the election of Judges as an organic
Taumn witt LAST.-That good old family
newspaper,tbe New York Observer, now some
fifty-thiee years old, still holds on to the old
trmhs which were so firmly advocated when
it was founded. No new lights or nineteenth
century doctrines have ever caused it to trip
or mak~e any false step. It is always satisfy
ing in our day, to take up a newspaper that
is sound and reliable. The Observer comes
to us weekly with a variety of reading in ad
dition to tbc news, and it is alvays pure and
hcah.lhv-just the paper for a famdly. For
specimien copies, address S. L. Primle & Co.,
Songs of the Land and Sea.
BY ES.NERALDA BOYLE.
We welcome the new songs of this
sweet liDnet of the South. They well
up from the fount of the purest of
souls and kindest of hearts. She
embalms us with the fragrance of the
forest, bathes us in the light of the
stars and rocks us to sleep with the
rythm of the waves.
"Borne on the air that hovered o'er the sea
The scent of spice, the fragrance of flowers,
Were mingled with the odor of the brine,
As moments among hours."
And through all this outer vesture
she never fails, to reveal to us. how
ever wistily, the spirit which therein
dwelleth. This power to bring us
nearer to the essence which underlies
all this outward show is the gift of the I
poet alone. Above all she loves her
own sunny South with a woman's love;
it bursts unconsciously through every
chink and cranny. This alone should
endear her to our people, who could
certainly find nothing more appropriate
for a Christmas gift than the "Songs
of the Land and Sea," beautifully
clad as they come to us in a dress of
blue percale, with black border and
gold trimmings. They are to be had
at John Chapman's bookstore.
Grant and the Sabbath School
The Methodist Sabbath School
Union, at its meeting at Boston on
Monday, according to the Associated
Press dispatch, resolved itself into a
political caucus, with Bishop Haven
as Boss Grant's representative.
This Grant prelate, it seems, "urged
as a measure of public safety the re
nomination of Gen. Grant for Presi
dent," and his views "were adopted
by a unanimous vote." What the
two hundred Methodist ministers com
posing this Sunday School Union have
to do with the third term, or what
right they have to turn from their
allotted work to advise the people for
whom they shall vote for the next
President, it is hard to discover.
Their action was indecent, offensively
joining church and state.
Suppose a Roman Catholic Congress,
incited thereto by Cardinal McCloskey,
should pass resolutions advising the
election to the Presidency of Tilden or
Thurman or anybody else, what a
howl there would be ',broughout the
country. All good Protestants would
despair of the State unles's they banded
themselves together to destroy the
Papists. Yet here a bishop of the
more powerful Methodist communion,
supported by two hundred of its
ministers, urges the re election of
We know of nothing in the history
of our religious bodies, Roman Catho
lic or Protestant, that compares with
the action of the Methodist Sabbath
School Union at Boston in imperti
nence and presumption. We are sure
it will receive general rebuke from the
great denomination it misrepresents.
[New York Sun.
We know that such action will find
no countenance in the South at least.
Our ministers still cling to the belief,
however obsolete such belief may be
growing in other parts of the- world.
that the church is not a political body
nor an electioneering contrivance. We
have some faint recollection that some
ignorant colored chaplain in our Legis
lature prayed for a certain measur.e
then before the House; that was,
however, in the heyday of legislative
partizanship and ignorance, and could
hardly happen at the present day. We
have a good deal to learn from our
Boston brethren, but it is to be hoped
that we will be slow to learn such les
sons as the above.

The Abbeville Medium, in the fol

"Economize. Save your dimes. The
next twelve months bid fair to be the
hardest we have had for years, and it
is the part of good sense to improve
our present opportunities and advan
tages limited though they be. This
is no false alarm. Money was never
so scarce as at present, and credit
never so bad. Great destitution and
absolute want prevail in many sections
of the country, and the tendency is to
the South. There is not now a half
year's supplies ahead and the people
are to be again subjected to the tender
mercies of unscrupulous speculators.
There is nothing so important now as
the careful husbanding of our re
sources. If we cut down expenses,
lay aside our pride and prejudices and
do a little more work with our own
hands, save every cent and learn to do
without our luxuries and even many
of our comforts, we may be able to
breast the storm that is sure to come,
and ride safely into port."
