COUNTY A UDITOR?
Ynn Tassel's recommendation to the Hoard
of Equalization of the appointment of three
tax-payers in each Township, to sit with
said Hoard, has boon copied by nearly all
the papers of tho St.ite. Mr. Van Tassel's
desire seems to bo to give satisfaction to tho
people, and to put property at its value and
no more. This is praiseworthy in him. and
will meet with the approbation of all honest

A WA Y FROM HOME?
The State Convention drew a great many
men, women and children to Columbia
During tho first day of the proceedings of
that body, a ponpous end officious young
mini, from n strong Republican Count j of
the up country, assumed a great many airs
which were not natural to him* In the Con
vention he shook familiarly tho hands of
such notables ao Judge Maokey, Senator
Patterson and Chambcrlnin, and with a
pea-cock strut promenaded tho isles of the
House of Representatives. Said young man
attracted u great deal of notice; but unfor
tunately for htm, an old acquaintance of
the tonsorinl profession discovero I his smil
ing face, and while ho was talking to a host
of big men, approached him with n broad
grin, and said:
Harber?"Why how arc you old friend ?
I hav'nt seen you for somo time. You re
member tho last time wo were on a spree
Young Man?(Shaking reluctantly the
hand of his drunken harbor friend and
milling him ?nBide.) Say, you ought, not to
havo interrupted mo then. Those men tako
mo to bo influential with tho delegates, and
i was trying lo get into their good graces.
Never approach mo in that Btylo ugaiu, or I
shnu't he aide lo treat you during the Con
Harber?Enough said. Go it old boy, get
the money and let's bavo a regular old time
Meldung glasses to-night."
Young Man??? Very well. I'll be nround
this evening. If you meet mo with big men,
mii.d you, don't recognize me. Is that a

Sr.Ql'Kl.?Doth woke up next morning
with a heavy headache.
The (.'haileston San, in Tuesday's issue,
I advised tho members of the Sate Conven

Editor made a calculation which led him to
tho conclusion tint each member should
hold his vote at. $10,000. How can the
conductors of said journal reconcile this
position with C e r professions of honesty V
The Sitn, in one breath, condemns lac lie
publican parly for its corruptions, and in t ho
