Early last Tuesday morning the dele
gates to the County Convention which
was to bo held the following day e?m
menoed to gather in and around the
Court llousc Square. Cundidates and
everybody else began 'o look lirely. It
was' soou understood that McKiuiay,
Livingston, Byas and Rigga had consoli
dated their forocs under the battle cry
"Anything to best Andrews!*' A little
later it was known that Williams, Cald
well and Guignurdhae' joined the" Allies,'*
aud many knowing onos affected to be
lievc that the Andrews men had hard
work before them. In the evening, the
"Allies" keptopenhoase nt a "Republican
Headquarters," and probably did a good
deal of cauoassing. A large - and
spirited oancft* of the Andrews party
wna also hold, the members of which
???emed rather to enjoy the prospect of
beating sown Opposing candidates all at
hic?, rather than by the slower, but oOt
more effectual uethod vf laying thorn
out one at a titn*.
At 12 o'clock M "oft lb* following
vl!*y, the 30 tli inst., the Con vent ion aseusa
\i\e<\ in the uew Codri. Room aud was
usMrt *o Order by the County Oh airman,
^U'dgv* AmLews CoL tl. I. Cain, and
Mr. W. Nr. Mount having been respeo
tively nominated for the temporary
<ouftir?M?ship by thA opposing faetious,
the Convention, and the numerous spec
tators who bad been very unwisely per
m'ttVed to enter the hall, immediately
broke oui into the meet infsrral uproar
that we have ever heard save at a
Democratic Convention or Ward If set
ing in the City of New York.
For two mortal hours the hid tons
noise continued, rendering aoy thing
like buaiaess utterly iatposiibls. At
la**, at 2 o'clock, the. Chairman ordered
a recess until 4 P. M. at whioh hour
the Sheriff aud his peace officers took
eharge or4 the outer door and, the roll of
delegates being called, admitted to the
hall only those who were entitled to
-enter. The Convention having re
assembled and balloting for a temporary
Chairman being in erder, Col. K I.
Cain was eleetcd by a vote of 35 ip his
favor Sgaiaat 26 for Mr. Mount. John
H. Phillips, A. B. Knowlton and 1. R.
IM eK inlay, were then nominated for
the temporary Chairmanship, but
Messrs . MoK in Is y and Knowlton
withdrew and Mr. Phi'lip* was unanim
ously eleeted. '
The Convention having thus effected
a temporary organisation, a committee
-of credentials was, apon motion, appoint
ed bj the Chair. Upon tho return of
the Committee with their report, a
lirely debate ensued upon the motion
for it* adoption, but the motion was
finally e?rried by a large majority.
Pol.. E. I, Cain and Mr. Mount were
then nominated for the permanent
Chairmanship. Mr. Mount withdrew "be
fore the rote was taken tod Col. E. I.
Cain was handsomely elected.
, John H. Phillips was then elected
Secretary and Johu L. Humbert as
The Convention then proceeded to
the nomination of candidates for the
vacant Sepatership. The following
names were placed before the Conveo*
tion : T- 0. Andrews, F. R. MoKinlay,
S. L. Duncan, J H J.iringston, 0*
W. Caldwell, Cnlviu Ouigoard, A. C.
Williams, Godfrey Murph and A. J.
- Mr. Samuel L. Duncan arose and
stated that, having in view no selBsh
interests, aud iting impelled sololy by
a desire fur the suooess and for the best
interests of tho Republican party, be
must decline allowing tho further uso of
his urime as a oandidate for the Senator
.ship. IIo feared that his continued
candidacy might impede the action of
the Convention, before whom there were
so many aspirants, and after a wur.n and
earnest speech winch elicited the appro
bation and applause of every one pre
sont, formally withdrew froth the candi
Messrs. Livingston, Culdwell and
Williams also withdrew before nny
furthor uctiou was had by the Conven
After nunioroua speeches in favor of
the various candidates a ballot was hud
with the following result:
T..0. Andrews,. 45.
F. R.McKiulay. 14.
Godfrey Murph, . 5.
Peter Walker. 2.
R. Ryas. 2.
The Hon. T. C. Andrews was there
upon, amidst uproarious applause, dec
larcd the nomiucc of tho Republican
County Convention of Orangehurg for
the u no x pi rod Senatorial Serin of the
lato Hon. Jarnos L. -Jamison.
After the applause, the welcoming
and the congratulatiou (which greeted
tho successful candidate had somewhat
subsided, Mr. F. R. McKinlay took the
floor and spoke as follows:
"Gentlemen of tho Convention : You
see belore you s. defeated candidate, but
though defeat od, still a Ropublioan
(Cheers.) The campaign has bscu
bitter and many hard thing* have been
naid by both sides. Rut it giVos me
pleasure to etate that the charges
brought against Judge Andrews by t ur
vide, atnouuted, after all, to nothing but
" campaign argument-.'* (Oheera.) And
I believe thai the other .side will do mc
the jur-ii*^ to say thnt the nccus?ti?n6
made against nrc Were nlsvj merely
"campaign argument." (Yes I yes!)
Gentlemen, 1 haVe fought .fudge An
drews to the best of my ability, and I
have been beaten, but it is a satisfaction
to me to kuow that I have been beuten
by so true, so loug tiied and so faithful
a Republicau as Judge Andrews, and I
hereby pledge myself, with all tho
solemnity of an oath, to use nil my
strength and ?tll my iuflucucc bo roll up
for him the largest R^pablioan vote ever
polled in this Couuty." (Treiuoudous

A case of considerable importance has
just been decided in the Third Judicial
Circuit, by Judge John T. Green, in
which the recent act of the Lcgisl iturc
of this fate, "to provide a summary
mode for purchasers of landsut tax sales
being put into possession," is declared
( unconstitutional and voi i. Th ? ciroutu
; stauces of the case arc as follows : Cer
I tain lands of Mrs. Kate Mu.Milliu and
others were sold for taxes in Juue, 1872
under the net of 18(10, and were pure has
ed by Louis Jacobs. The first owners
of the property, through thoir attorney,
S. W? Maurice, Esq.. made application
to Judge Green for a prohibition to
restrain the sheriff from proar-ediitg un
der th'i act. A temporary Injunction v ss
grunted, which, after argument, was
mado pcrpctuil aud absolute by a form
The argument of Mr. Maurice w*a
verj' exhaustive und complete. Hi?
main points were as follows: That the
act of i>7-. under which the sale wait
uiude, is a "bill for raising revenue," and
orginstcd iu the Senate instead of the
House of Represent uives, as required by
the Constitution of the State.?That
the act is unconstitutional, because it
relate* to more than one subject, nnd
that the subjects ure not cxprensod in
the title. That tho effect of the act of
1873, us well as that of 1872, is to do
privo the citiz.cn of his property without
the judgment of his peers or the law of
the laud. That the act of 1872 under
takes, upnu its face, to amend n re
pealed statute. Tnat tho samo aot,
upon its face, authorized only tho sale of
forfeited lauds, whereas tho land was
sold as delinquent land, and hence th
sale was void for authority. The point
was also made tltat a tax deed, if for
delinquent 1: nds, must lo seaiud with
the private seal of the officer who exe
Outes it. If for ferfeitod lauds, the
title to which is in the Government,
then it must be in the form, and possess
cd of the characteristics, of a grant un
der the great seal of the ?tate, signed by
the Covcruoi aud countersigned by the
Secretary of State.
Other grounds were taken iu the ar
gument of the counsel, sajs the Charles
ton News <(? Courier, to which we ore
indebted for this intelligent statomeat
of the matter, but the court, without
entering upon the consideration of these,
granted tho injunction, upon the broad
pr nciple laid dowu in tho State Cousti

person shall be arrested, imprisoned,
