Haves' Last Message.
President Hayes sent in his Mes
sage to Congress the 6th. It is a
very voluminous document, and
treats of a variety of subjects. He
devotes considerable attention to
the matter of the late election, and
charges the Southern States with
all sorts of fraud and corruption by
which, he says, they "defeated the
exercise of the right preservative of
all rights, the right of suffrage,
which the Constitution expressly
confers upon our enfranchised citi
zens". In speaking on this subject,
he says : "I trust the House of
Representatives and the Senate,
which have the right to judge of
the elections, returns and qualifica
tions of their own members, will
see to it that every case of violation
of the letter or spirit of the Fif
teenth Amendment is thoroughly
investigated, and that no benefit
from such violation shall accrue to
any person or party." Which means
that he advises the House, which
will be Republican after the 4th of
March, to seat the Republican con
testants from the Southern States.
He goes on to say: "It will be the
duty of the Executive, with suffi
cient appropriations for the pur
pose, to prosecute unsparingly all
who have been engaged in depriv
ing citizens of the rights guaran
teed to them by the Constitution."
In regard to popular education,
he recommends that Congress sup
plement the local educational funds
in the Stated by devoting public
lands to this purpose, or by appro
priations if necessary.
He devotes a large space to his
pet hobby and sham-"civil service
reform"-and recommends that ap
pointments be made by means of
competitive examinations, and :he
recommends an appropriation of
$25,000 annually for meeting the
expenses of a Commission to make
He goes for the wicked Mormons,
and urges Congress to devise some
more effective means of suppress
ing polygamy. He recommends
either that the Territory of Utah
be reorganized, or that a law be
passed depriving those who prac
tice polygamy of the right to vote,
-hold office, or sit on juries.
He recommends that Gen. Grant
be appointed by Congress "Captain
General of the Army, with suitable
provisions relating to compensa
A great deal of space is taken up

or no interest to the general reader.
* Mrs. Kennedy, wife of Mr. Thos.
Kennedy, of Clarendon County,
was murdered in her yard during
the absence from home of her hus
band Sunday, the 5th instant. Mr.
Kennedy went Sunday morning to
get his mother to stay with his wife
while he should go to Charleston
the next day. Returning in the af
ternoon, he found his wife lying
dead in the yard,- with her skull
broken and crushed by some sharp
instrument. His house had been
plundered, trunks rifled and several
articles of value stolen. Mrs. Ken
nedy had been married only a year,
and was soon to become a mother.
The whole community was arous
ed by the news of the brutal rnur
der, search was instituted, and the
crime was fixed upon three negroes,
two men and a woman. They were
captured and hanged to the nearest
tree, whites and blacks participa
ting in the execution.

The incorporators of the road
between Greenville and Laurens

'The engineer reported that the road
could be graded, including br-idges

Counties of Laurens and Greenville

Is giving our Legislators con
;iderable trouble. It is an ex- sn
;remely perplexing question to de- ex
:ide what to do with the convicts. wc
rhat they ought to be made to Ar
vork, ani. as far as possible, pay tr<
he expenses of their own crimes, ag
io one doubts. But in what way m=
;hall they be worked? The best y.
vvay, undoubtedly, is in building se
ailroads, digging phosphates, and th
n other enterprises of a quasi pub- sh
ic character. The trouble so far ni
ibout this is, that many of those
who hire the convicts for such pur- th
poses ha-3 treated them so badly. w<
s year ago we had the horrors of
the Greenwood & Augusta R. R. C<
This year we hear grievous com m
plaints from the Edgefield & Tren- co
ton R. R. Several months ago wi
complaints were made that the con- pc
victs working at one of the phos- ch
phate works were being cruelly tu
treated. With such experience is
constantly recurring it is no won
der that a bill has been introduced tr
in the Legislature to prohibit the at
further hiring out of convicts. We tb
don't think the bill will pass ; but re
its introduction shows the necessity tb
of more stringent regulations con
cerning the treatment of convicts, lil
and the enforcement of the law p1
against parties who maltreat them. W
A company, or a corporation, W
hire, for instance, one hundred te
convicts for twelve months ; their di
object is to get all the work
possible out of them during that
time. It ought to be so arranged
that convicts hired out should be
visited at intervals by an officer of B
the Penitentiary, and the first act ro
of unnecessary cruelty on the part ty
of the contractors should forfeit G
their contract and subject them to w
a penalty. Convicts should be em- G
ployed on these works of a public B
character as long as such work can V
be found for them ; and should not
be put in competition with skilled S
mechanics until it becomes abso
lutely necessary for the purpose of Y
keeping them from idleness. With ~
proper regulations cruelty can be
It is no maudlin sentimentality fc
that demands that the convicts shall ti
receive kindly treatment: both hu- ai
manity and economy require it. a
They are human beings, and should ti
be treated as such ; besides this, if h:
they do not receive proper treat- ID
ment they become totally wrecked el
and worthless as laborers and a
dead expense to the State. pl
The editor of the Baltimore aj
American on a recent visit to Char- ci
leston wrote to his paper very free- o1
ly his opinions of that city. While
praising its natural beauties and
advantages he styles it a city with- A
out progress. He attributes her e
lack of progress and her slow w
growth to selfishness, and says,
"Charleston has always lived for
herself, and herself only." He says
that for a Charlestonian the sun
rises in the Cooper and sets in the B
The whole up-country of the h
State has entertained this opinionr
for a long time ; but the Charleston h:
people have always attributed the sa
expression of such opinions to jeal- ai
ousy, or sectionalism, or some other g
bad motive. Now that a disinter
ested outsider expresses the same i
views so forcibly and pointedly as fo
the Baltimore American editor has ea
done, we hope it may have its due q
effect in awakening the Charleston- ot
ians to more liberal views. ti
We desire, in common with the h<
whole up-country, to see our chief I
commercial city prosperous ; but
we want it to be on a fair basis of
mutual patronage and benefit. qi
Dr. D. S. Pope, Assistant Suir- w
geon of the Penitentiary, having b
visited the convicts on the Edge- g
field & Trenton R. R., reports that"
he found sixteen convicts employed ta
on the road ; one was employed as le
a cook and seemed to be in good O
health; three wer'e sick in the hos- d
pital; twelve were at work, of whom ce
five bore marks of very severe whip- sa
pings. All had symptoms of scur

not able to do the work required of
