Tho Kopublican Convonvention
which rocontly mot in Columbia was
a disgraco to tho whole country. It
was a disgrace to thoso who participated,
and a disgracp to that party in
the Unitod Statos that has kopt such
worthies in powor so long. It is diffl*
cult to concoivo how a party so blatant
with rowdyism and rooking with biU
lingsgato, as that which roccntly mot
in Columbia, could possibly rotain
powor if loft ontiroly to itsolf.
In that Convontion woro assomblod
tho mon who havo rulod South (Jaros
lina for eight long yoars. Thoso mon
roprosont tho brains and tho animus
of thoir party, and their actions, do
jngfl, and sayings may bo takon as
flair and truo oxponcnts of tboir constilucnts.
What thcso aro it is unec*
ossary to rocall; thoy havo boon pubs
lishod to tho world and thoy aro not
easily forgotten. They show conclusively
that thoro is no liopo of reformation
insido tho Republican party.
Wo may bo told, howovor, that Governor
Chamberlain is sincoro in his
propositions of roformj that ho advocatod
tbom boldly in dofonding his
administration, and that ho was chosen
a dologato to tho Cincincinnatti
Convontion---all of which goos to
provo that ho can control his party.
It provos no such thing, and the whole
history of tho Convention at Colum*
bia proves just tho contrary. "Why
then, was ho chosen? Well it is diftU
' cult to oxplain tho whim or impulse
that may, for a moment, control such
ft body. Ho hau just emasculated ,

The Black Thursday JudgesThe
Charleston Bar havo taken a
bold and decisive stand, says the
Nowa and Courier. They agree to
tho legal proposition that Judges
Reed and Shaw, although e'.octod
lor an unexpired term, aro in office
under the Co nstitution, and aro entitled
to serve for the lull term ol
four years from tho day ol their elcc
lion, and that tho election of Whipper
in tho place of Judge Reel, and
of Moaea, Jr., in tho place of Judge
Shaw, was unlawful and void. They
therefore uphold Governor Chamberlain
in iiia refusal to issue commit
sions to the persona who claim to
have been elected and were not elected;
and they pledge to Judgo Reed
their support in every way ho can
devise or mivy require. They further
declare their determination not to
recognme Whipper as Ciicuit Judgre
in tbis County, and that thoy will
resist any attempt on his part to en'force
his right to the ollice.
This is a proper beginning, but wo
do not think ot Charleston alone.?
There is Orangeburg to care for, and
it is hoped that the Bar there will
think favorably of what baa been
done hero and will doclara similar
conclusions ond determinations. Only

sign the letter to Judge Reed, and
with a likejunanimity in Orangeburg,
tho prospect of a peaceful victory
will bo blight.
Tho Counties in Judge Shaw's Circuit
have already spoken boldly and
decisively about their pretender, ex>*
Governor Moses, and tho lino agreed
upon in this Circuit will no doubt bo
satisfactory to them. They can count
on Judge Shaw's assent to a request
similar to that made of Judge Reed,
and tho moral effects of it will bo ox
cellent. Sumpter, spirited and resoluto,
can well take the lead Again.
The declaration of the Charleston
Bar will be understood everywhere.
It has only one meaning, which is
that Whipper is not Judgo, and shal'
not sit as Judgo in this County. Tho
law will bo exhausted in this effort to
koop out tho usurper; and the law, in
so clear a case, outrht to bo sufficient.
But if tho law does not snflice to
kcop Whipper out, lie will bo kopt
out. That is the declaration of tho
Charleston Bar, who, in tLis, aro tho
spokesmen of tho whole body ot res
apectable citi/eus.

)y which money was mado, but theso. I

luxiliary to the shop. Outside of 1

time were narrow, because, no doubt, 1
lis powers were limited. What he (
night hnve accomplished, had ho J
loncentrated these powers on some* j
hing olse than shopkeoping, may be
vaguely imagined; or what result
vould have attonded a diffusion of
lis intellectual force and great vital
mergy, may be the subject of guesses 1
till more vaguo. All wo know is .

Why Lincoln was Assassinated. ?
Among Iho choson fliends of John
iVilkos Booth's boyhood was a dashng,
chivalrous young man named
rohn Y. Boal. whoso homo was in tho

IJuffalo, triod for piracy on Northern

who was at tho timo in Washington
in tbo intorost of his businoss. These '
mon who callod woro Sonator Halo of
Now Hampshiro and John Will ?
Booth. Booth was anxious to save ^
Lho life of Boal, his chum and confiJential
personal friond. Ilo had interested
Mr. llalo in his behalf. Thoy j
importuned McLcan to go with thorn ,
to tho Preflidont, as a Domocrat?as a
friend of Booth?as a man who had
much influence with Mr, Lincoln, and
to vouch with Mr. Halo for any promises
Booth might mako in roturn for
this great favor to him. After a protracted
interview McLean accompanicd
Hale and Booth in a carriago to
mo resiuonco ol J. W. Fornoy, who
was thon in bod, tho hour being lato.
Pornoy was awakened from his sloop
and told tho objoet of his call. His
sympathis woro onlisted, as ho was
always ready to sorvo his friends.
It was an hour or moro past midnight
when Halo, Forney, McLean,
and Booth woro drivon to tho Wlnto
House. Tho guard, at tho roquost of
Fornoy, admitted tho carriago to tho
grounds. Mr. Lincoln was called i
from his sleep, and thoro, in tho dead
of nicrht. ho sat and linfnnnH trw *?./>
prayors of Booth and indorsements of
thoso who camo with him to ask tho
favor of Exccutivo clomoncy. This in- \
Lorviow lastod t'.ll 4 in tho morning.
I'horo was not a dry oyo in tho ro^m
[\s Booth knelt at tho foot of Lincoln, 1
slaspod hisknoos with his hands, and
begged him to ?paro tho lifo of ono 1
man?a porsonal friond?who, in scrv
ing tho onos ho lovod, had como to i
Lho door of death.
Booth told all. Ho told how, long
boforo, in a fit of passion to do somo i
bold doed. ho had joinod in a conspiracy
to abduct tho President and to ,
hold him as hostage for tho roloaso of 1
sortain military prisoners who wore
liooth's friends, and who, it was
thought, woro to bo shot. JIo told of
Lho meetings thoy had hold at tho
Ijouso of Mrs. Surratt, and that all of
that plan luid fallen to the ground
long boforo. Ho offorod his norviccs
xt any timo and in any placo or capacity,
frco of cost or foarloes of co?ijcquencos.
Tho ominont gentlomon
who woro thcro with him joinod in ,
