The Hon. R. J. Walker addressed the Su
preme Court to-day in a speech of three hour?
duration, which is considered a masterly effort.
Ho said that constitutional liberty and self
government we're 4iow on final trial, and it was
about to be decided for posterity in all the
worh^ylifethbr writtcu constitutions were parch
ment scrolls, words written in sand, to be
swept away by the first angry surge of popular
passion, whether they can bte evaded by tech
nical issues or plea of want of jurisdiction.
A broader bill of attainder and pains and pen
alties had never been passed, reducing 10,000,
000 of loyal and disloyal people to territorial
. bondage^ and substituting the gleaming sword
and bristling bayonet for constitutional guards
and courts of law.
The case was continued uutil Monday, when
Attorney-General Stauberry will reply.
May 6.?Attorney-General Stanberry closed
his argument in the injunction cases. He
sjtoko as to the general principle denying the
jurisdiction of tho Court, no basis by which re
lief could be given. Only two out of ten
States affected were here. Eight were content.
The Attorney-General said that the Su
preme Court might so act as to induce Con
gress to destroy the efficiency of the Court,
by impeaching Judges on false accusations, or
by denying the salaries required for their sup
port- It rested with tho people to secure hon
esty in the Legislature, and to this basis we
' must look for the preservation of rights of citi
zenship and tho integrity of the State Courts.
The Court then adjourned.
Tho TJse of the Ballot.
Governor Orr,.of South Carolina, lins just
made a speech to a number of the new citizens
"of his State. In his capacity as G ovcrnor he
was expected to advise these political neo
phytes as to the proper course for them to pur
?tmc?to imbue them with the knowledge he had
gained during a persistent course of office
holding statesmanship, and to instruct them in
the art of vot ing. To such a source the inquisi
tive enfranchised ought not to loots in vain for
illumination. Surely, if any one is capable of
throwing light on such a subject, it is a gentle
man who has illustrated in his own history the
workings of the ballot-box, and who has mau
aged to got elected to a great many important
offices, without possessing any superfluous
quantity of merit The newly invented citi
zens of South Carolina must certainly entertain
a high appreciation of the powers of the elec
tive franchise when they Gnd what it has done
for Governor Orr; just as in this State, they
must have gained an exalted notion of its effi
cacy by observing what it effected for the gen
tlemen who were elected to office in 18GI.
Hence, it is not surprising that the colored
voters of South Carolina applied to Governor
Orr for instruction before deciding on their
future political course.
We have only a brief telegraphic synopsis of
the remarks which the Governor addressed to
Iiis fellow-citizens on this important occasion,
and, therefore, wo arc precluded from laying
boforc.Our readers tho whole of his speech.
That is a luxury which they have yet in anti
cipation. But it is gratifying to know that we
nro notlcft entirely ignorant of the Governor's
views. When we have becu informed of the
main point of his programme, it is, perhaps,
superfluous to inquiro for more. Indeed, his
plan is so comprehensive, and yet so simple ; so
efficacious, and yet so intclligiblo, that we only
wonder that nobody ever thought of it before;
and should esteem it almost an impertinence to
ask for arguments in its favor. In reply to tho
momentous questions, "What shall wc do?"
pr} in other words, "How shall wc vote?" ho
inform:' the colored people that the best thing
for them to do is not to vote at alL He tells
them that they must not attach themselves to
cither of the two parties now disputing for su
premacy iu tho country; that they must avoid
the Republican party as a sham and a humbug,
and the Democratic party as a dolusion and a
snare, and wait to join tho groat party which
is to contpriso the peoplo of both races in the
South, and everybody at tho North. Of course,
nobody will deny that such a party would not
bo only powerful, hut invincible; nor would
anybody bo guilty of tho fatuity of opposing a
party which is to include everybody. Hence
we must concede that the- Governor's ndyico
was eminently sagacious and sound. But it
Would, no doubt, havo been very ngreeablo to
his hearers to be told when this political mil
lenium is to commence; when this political
happy family is tobe organised; when the Re
publican lion and tbc Democratic lamb arc to
lie down togotber, and abovo all, of what par
ticular U80 it would bo,for anybody to vote,
just at that time, when votes shall have become
altogether unnecessary and superfluous. In
tins point of view tho suggestions of Governor
Orr do not aocin to bo vory practical. The
nowly enfranchised citizens ask for light on the
political questions of tho day, and ho replies
by blowing out tho lamp of knowledge. They
want to know how thoy shall vote as between
tho two great parties, and ho tells them to vote
with neither tho ono nor tho other. Thoy ask
to what party thoy shall then ally themselves,
and ho answers -'to that party which shall arise
when there aro no longer any parties." The
inference from all of which is that tho ques
tions now heforo the country arc of no particu
lar moment; and that tho only use ot the bal
lot at presont is. to elect Governor Orr, and
such like, to be Senators and members of Con
gress.?A7". O. Crescent, May 3.
THE ORANGEB?RG NEWS.
SATURDA Y, MAY 11,1867.
While we reserve to ourselves the right of defi
ning our own. politicalposition by means of our
editorial columns, tec will be pleased to publish
contributions from our fellow-citizens upon the
grave questions which now agitate the public
mind, whether their opinions coincide tcith ours
or not. A district newspaper, we consider,
should be an index of the various shades of pop
ular sentiment in the section of country in which j
it circulates. Our columns arc open, therefore,
for any communications properly written, accom
panied by a responsible name, not. personal in
their character," nor absolutely injurious in their
The cry is going forth from all sections of
our State,?"Clivc us bread, or wc die." This
unparalcllcd state of distress, which exists in
some Districts to such an extent as to bring
many to the verge of starvation, calls for the
earnest efforts of those who can, to alleviate the
misery of their fellow creatures, especially when
they are their neighbors, and perhaps the wives
and children of those who stood side by side
with them in trying hours of danger. Orange
hurg is not as destitute as some other portions
>f.thc State, it is true; but it is getting worse
and worse every day with us, and unless active,
vell-dirccted efforts are put forth, the murmur
of starvation, now beginning to arise in our
midst, will gather into a loud and heart-rend
ing wail of human anguish.
Under these circumstances, what is to be
done, to avert this impending calamity ? .Vic
think that much can be accomplished by sys
tematistng charity. "We. uro glad to ^^ipagfofr i
served the appointment of a committee *^^bWW
zens at this place, for the purpose of collecting
and dispersing District contributions, and
we are confident that when they make a
report of their labors, it will be seen that
much good h;us been thus done to the
suffering poor. "Wc would suggest it as a
good plan, to have similar committees in every
Beat throughout the District, to ascertain the
names of those who are really destitute, and to
collect contributions from those who arc in more
favored circumstances. In this way, each
Beat can in a measure relieve its own distress,
and its Committee can then report to a Com
mittee at this place, what they are unable to do
of themselves, and the names of all the really
destitute among them, so that further relict
can bo extended. This will obviate two evils
of the present system of a single Central Com
mittee : First, that they arc sometimes liable
to imposition, and distribute to those who make
the most pitiful representations, hut arc not
the most needy^ Ln reality ; and secondly, that
they may occasionally be led to withhold assist
ance from those really necessitous, on account
of malicious reports of parties, attempting to
wreak some private grudge, or gratify some
In making these suggestions, wc do not de
sire to east any reflection on ti good judge
ment or commendable efforts of the present
Central Committee to do good. There is no
doubt that thoy arc discharging their duty to
the best of their abitity, and that they are fully
competent to this noble work : but how much
could their good purposes be assisted, had they
the co-operation of Boat Committees, such as we
have above suggested.

Wagoner. Commissioner of Immigration, and
intended for circulation abroad, in the view of

The pamphlet is well calculated to sot forth

attended by a guard of honor, and at the re

and he saluted by every one passing it. Gcsier's

that will probably encourage him to suspend

of Saturday is the first notice we have of South
Carolina to the Memorial Bazaar at Richmond:
THE PAT.MKTTO TttKK,
the emblem of South Carolina, next attracts
our attention displayed upon the State shield
and accompanied by the motto 11 Dum Spiro
Sjirro." The tree is formed of palmetto leaves
and the canopy of tho table is wreathed with
similar leaves and garlanded with grey moss.
Vases of flowers, bright and odorous, are scat
tered over the booth in rich profusion, setting
off to fine advantage the numerous elegant
articles, all of which we are informed are to
be had for a dollar, this being a prize table.
A toilet set of Bohemian glass, some elegant
perfumery flacons, a bridal toilet box of white
silk and a rich jewelry case are donations from
South Carolina, as are also sonic other articles;
but the most of the articles here displayed arc
contributions from Richmond. A fine picture
of a young girl, a fancy sketch, is also the
handiwork and offering of a young South
Carolina lady, and some very pretty artificial
work, tastily' encircled with shell-work, arc the
products of one of Carolina's fair and faithful
daughters. A pair of screens, beautifully em
broidered iu beads and worsted, will attract the
attention of the ladies and are presents from
Mrs. Gilmour, formerly of Richmond, but now
residing in England ; and an elegant Canton
crape shawl, valued at 8100, is also a donation
from England. A pair of richly embroidered
sofa cushions aro a present from Charleston,
and are worth more than a passing notice.

dead and buried, reviewed the history of South
