After the applause, the welcoming I
|and the congratulation t whioh greeted

subsided, Mr. F. R. MeKinlay took the
floor and spoke as follows :
"Gentlemen of tho Convention : You
see before you a defeated candidate, but
though defcutod, sttll a Republican
(Chcors.) The campaign has bjcu
bittet and many hard thing* have been
said by both sides. Hut It gives mc
pleasure to etate that the charges
brought against Judge Andrews by nur
torde, amounted, after ell, to nothing but
" campaign argument/* (Chcors.) And
I believe that the other .side will do mc
the .ju.-tice to say that the nccusations
made against mc Were also merely
"eatnpaign argument." (Yes I yes!)
Gentlemen, 1 have fought Judge An

have been beaten, but it \a a satisfaction
to me to kuow that I hare been beuten
by so true, so long tried and so faithful
a Republican as Judge Andrews, and I
hereby pledge myself, with all tho
solemnity of an oath, to use all my
strength and nil my tuflucuco to roll up
for him the largest Republican vote ?vor
polled in this County." (Tretucudous

a handsome lock of uew cotton. This

April, aud bloomed about the 15f.h of
Juni. Th ? b ?11 w.is well dove! ?pjd and

A case of considerable importance has
just been decided iu the Third Judicial
Circuit, by Judge John T. Green, in
which the recent act of the Legist iture
of tins t?te, "to provide a summary
mode for purchasers of lands at tux sales
being put into possession," is declared
unconstitutional and voi 1. Th ? clroum
stances of the case ar?3 as follows : Cer
tain lauds of Mrs. Kate McMiiiiu and
others were sold for taxes in June, 1872
under the net of 1866, and were pure has
ed by Louts Jacobs. The first ownsrs
of the nrnperty, through their attorney,
S. W. Maurice, Ksq.T made application
to Judge Green lor a prohibition to
restrain the sheriff from proceeding un
dec the act. A temporary injunction was
granted, which, after argument, was
nmdo perpctuil aud absolute by a form
lite argument of Mr. Maurice was
very exhaustive and complete. His
main points were as follows: That the
act of 1872, under which the sale was
made, is a "bill forrniaiog rcvonue," and
orginatcd iu the Senate instead of the
House of Representatives, as required by
the Constitution of the State.?That
the nct is unconstitutional, because it
relates to more than one subject, and
that the subjects ore not czprossod in
the title. That tho effect of the not of
1873, as well as that of 1872, is to do
privo the citizen of his property without
tbe judgment ol his peers or thu law of
the laud. That tho act of 1872 under
takes, upnu its face, to inn end a re
pealed statute. That the same act,
upon its face, authorized only tho sale of
forfeited lauds, whereas tho land was
sold us delinquent laud, and nonce lb
sale was void for authority. The point
I wap also made that a tax deed, if for
delinqueut I: nds, must bo sealed with
the private seal of the offioer * ho exe
cutcs it. If for forfeited lands, the
title to which is in the Government,
then it must be in tho form, and possess
ed of the characteristics, of a grant un
der the great seal of the State, signed by
the Govcrooi aud countersigned by the
Socrctary of State.
Other grounds were taken iu tho ar
gument of the counsel, says the Charles
ton News A Courier, to which we arc
indebted for this intelligent StatBOlOQt
of the matter, but tho court, without
entering upou the consideration of these,
granted the injunction, upou the broad
pr nciple laid down in tho State Consti
tution, (article 1, soclton 14,) that no
person shall be srrosted, imprisoned,
despoiled or dispossessed of his "prop
ty, immunities or privileges, put "out of
the law; exilod or "deprived of his lifo,
liberty or estate," but "by tbe judgment
of his peers or tho "law of tho hnd."
