How lam Ito ports Are made.
A CoQinjUtc of 111o liar Association, in
u recent communication, call attention to
the evils of.the "present system of Law
Reporting, which (hey show up in n great
variety of ways, and by a exhibition of
BOine fact.? wh'ch show that the makers
of law books, like ether gentry, nro "a
connnerclnl people." This matter is
chiefly interesting to the lawyers whose
pockets are depleted for tho purchase of
these books, and whose shelves aro en
cumbered with the ponderous tomes.
Rut the people are interested, also, in
?whatever adds to the cost of legal services
ns the time and money consumed over
these useless hooks certainly do. How
unnecessary and how undiscriniinaliug
these law. reports uro, a few statements
from the Committee's communication
will show. Seven independent, reporters
in this State now issue seveu series ol
regular reports, in all averaging some
eighteen volumes aunu illy, Iii the 565
yours ending in 1872, tho law reports
published in Luhgluud am muled to 1,03(5
volumes, while during the last 7!) years
dUO volumes were published in this State
alone, Ucsides, (here nro 11)0 volumes
of the I'ni'ud States Reports arid taken
all together, the published reports of this
county, number more than 2,000 vol
unies, which shows how much more a
young liepublic cau accomplish in 79
years than tin "effete monarchy" can in
fil>5. Those reports are encumbered by
useless repetitious. Six volumes of
Abbott's Practice Reports, carefully
< xumiucd, show one case reported seven
limes, and one reported six times, eight
in.'cs five times, thirty nine three times,
und T.evcnty seven twice. One hundr d
and fifty-one of these cases nrciiitrcduo
cd iu oilier Rt ports. None of these re
appear in (he Common Pleas Reports,
and the Par Association Committee
compliment Judge Duly od Iiis discrimi
nation. Jn eight examined volumes of
Rnrrour, one care is reported eight times,
:ino one six* Seven cases arc reported
fivo times, and fifty-eight arc reputed
twice. Very often the opinions ofSpc
oial Term nud Gtucrtil Term' aie repor
ted togeiher, and .Supremo Court duct
sions arc reported ul'Wr they have been
u?irmed or reversed by tho Court of
Appeals. Thf? of course is ubso'utcly
unnecessary, u mere waste of words anil
a heedless dUr-gird of what the Courts
arc doing. The hooks are filled with
bad laws and no law, and hundreds ol
?|uestions of no sort of importance arc
raised, the appeal often being made side
f'cr the purpose of delay. There is also
u needless prolixity iu the reports, mid
tho vo'.u-jos aro padded nud distended
beyondII reasonable proportions. Some
of the English reports contain more than
two hyudred cases. The earlier volumes
of Johnson contain one hundred and
filly cases; while the average of our pres
ent Reports is something like seventy
five or eighty. Another peculiarity of
l.aw Reporting is the archaic side ol it,
und the delving after fossils, so conside
rately indulged in. Thus Rnrh mr ro
ports a case in 1.872, which was decided
in 1862. Th ig CBSO was reported by him
in 1863, though it had baen reversed at
that timo. Another "oascj decided iu
1882. was reversed iu 1863, and repor
ted in Harbour hist. year. Iu one of
Keyor's roporls, n head note contains
proposition which the Court distinctly
said it did not determine. There are
also long delays in publication-, and im
portant casos arc four of five years in
getting into print. The Par Committee
conclude their review of this subje
without unking any recommendation,
and (hey appeal to the lawyers of the
State lor suggestions before they submit
a defiuits proposition. Kuough is known
of this Pa v Reporting business now to
show that it is an evil from which the
Par should ho rescued nud one whom
amendment is of very great importance,

,J)cur Sir.?We need Northern men
In thin Southern Country, to develop
our resources. We have proof enough
that our own people huvc thu capacity,
, and like only the will, to do tl.at which
will benefit on'r county. A shingle
factory ha? l ern started', on the Ranks
of the Kditfto, alt hough tho Machinery
i* not \vh;rt it should be, still with pro
per management and will? improved
machinary, another factory would meet
Now Mr. Editor, there is plenty of
room to start another factory. MueJiin
cry and u complete out lit can bo pro
cured for six thousand dollars. This
amount will cover every thing. With this
capital d factory can be started, that will
turn out twenty thousand bMligks per
day, ouly allowing 300 working dayu
per auoumu, which would produce six
I million shingles pnr aunuruu, and at
$5 per 1000 would amount to thirty
thousand dollars. Allowing 92.50 per
thousand to manufacture the shingles
would be fifteen thousund dollars, this
would leave a profit of $15000, being
100 per cost, on 80000 captial investod.
This looks like a largo profit but it is
truo. 1 will giro a few facts, which
will convince any reasonable mind that
these figures arc a low estimate.
Shingles are worth 87 to ?8 iu Char
let-ton per thousand and 810 to 811 in
Northern markets. Iu putiug the price
to nett 85 por thousand in Oran-zoburg
and 82 50 cost to make this would have
a clear prfilit as above stated.
I propose to make up a stock
company, with a capital of six thous
ami dollars, say 10(1 shares at 800 each.
There is another fact to he taken into
consideration, which is the manufactcr
ling all kind of sla\cs. which arc in
[ great, demand. The raw material cau
be very easily obtained on the Kdi.-tu
River, where all the different kind of
woods that arc required can be had.
J he w riter of this crticlo hopes that
some of our prominent citizens will give
this article dub consideration, and any
further information or explanation will
be cheerfully given, to demonstrate the
great bility of an cntei prize of this kind.
Mr. Editor. ? Your paper has been
decidedly improved, and looks much
better than usual, ami I am glad to see
it ; as it is one of Orangcburg's prom
i cut institutions, and should receive
the liberal patronage of this community.
In your issue of tho 7th iiistantyou

and "dvisrd. what, tjie next Council

certain Town iiuprovetricnts, viz. Ar< ir
iSfrt'cts, Market^ Public Weigher, etc, in
all which 1 heartily agree and believo
the majority of our Townsmen ft*vor?
It is iu this connection, I write ; the
citizens of OrangcbUrg arc becoming
tired of the loose und unlawful manner
in which the prcseut incumbents arc
granting] and have been granting retail
liquor license, they arc certainly aware
of the feet that their e.-nduct is not in
accordance With the law of the Stotc
They certainly can seethe effect of this
grog-shop sy-Rtcru in our Town aud
should take some steps to prevent it j
before this community is completely
demoralized. They may say that they
have already issued these licenses, and
that they cannot recall them. They
can certainly do as tho Council of Caiu
den S. C. has done, and show to the
people that they are desirous of reme lying
the tnatlcr in the future. The Caniden
Council have sceu the evil they were
doing and hev; passed the f l owing :
CAMP**, 8. C, May 10, 1*73.
Resolved, That in future, Council
will grant no license to retail spirituous
liquors within the corporate, limits of
the town, except in a rict accordance
with the State law regulating the satuc.
And that no license will be renewed
after the prcFent qunrtcr expire*, to
those already granted, except in accord
ance with the law of the State as above
It appears Mr Editar that bar rooms
aro a necessary evil, and that teen will

A11 over the country the colored pco
pic are proving what nc have so often
written about thorn, thoy are bard work
ing, economical, thrifty population. In
the up country, in the low country, all
over tho Statu, it would surprise any hot
a newspaper man, wluwo business it is
to look into these tli-ngv to realize what
the colored pooplo arc doing. In the
t up country thoy arc working bard, sav
ing their isjnney, buying live, ton and
twenty acre tracts and building up their
own humble and prosperous homesteads.
I h the middle counties ?lioy arc progress
ing still more rapidly and successfully.
In the low county the amount ol cotton
the colored pcop'? send to market is
nMoni?dV?ng, and irt sumo places they,
have in copartnership purchased some
of the finest plantations along tho coast.
All over tho State they arc buying at
the close of the busiu :?a scison, lands,
horses und funning stock cf all kinds.
Cpou every specica of this proporty they
hnvo to pay tax, nnd those who own no
property hove to meet the tax gatherer
through their daily labor; because, if
they go to the country store to buy ba
con, coffee, sugar, flour or any of the
necessaries of life, they have to pay a
price that will cover the store koeper's
tax and other expenses ol his business.
These Im Iis the people are beginning
to learn, to talk about *o each other, and
they are beginning to investigate the
conduct of their public officers. They
see a muu go to the Legislature or into
some county offico who bud not money
enough to buy a new hat, and io a few
months be can drive a horse and bugt-y
and wear a gold chain that dazzle the
eye of the very men who sent him into
office. They begin to understand this
sort of thing und to douiahd that the
uieu in office shall be careful h iw they
lavish the public funds, tax the people
and plunder and defraud them an 1 th;ir
families. This thing cannot lust always
and i? fast playing out. It must die out
in the very nature of things; und if* th >
people can hardly stagger un ler the

who immcdiutcly discovered poison and

the w.fj of li. It. Drake, formerly of
