COUNTY A UDITOR?
Van Tassel's recommendation to the Hoard
of Equalization of the appointment of three
tax-payers iu each Township, to sit with
said Hoard, has beon copied by nearly all
the papers of the State. Mr. Van Tassel's
desire seems to bo to give satisfaction to tho
people, and to put property at its value and
no mure. This is praiseworthy i n Iii tu, ami
will meet with the approbation of all honest

Mosely & Copes' store, where be can ho found
at all times daring business hours. His
location is the most convenient to our mer
chants, and is largely patronized.
The Committee appointed by Judge Cruh
am nt the IiieI tcim of Court, to investigate
Ihe public affairs of litis County, met at
this place on Monday last, ami commenced
their investigation. In consequence of the
tin avoidable absence of one or two officers,
the committee adjourned on Thursday to
meet again on Ihe 9th Inst. We understand
they will compliment Mr. Boliver for his
careful management of the affairs of the
County Commissioners' office-, for the hist
two years. He is a faithful officer, and de
serves such commendation.

A WA V FROM HOME?
The Slate Convention drew a great many
men, women and children to Columbia.
During tho first day of tho proceedings of
that body, a ponpous end ollicious young
man, from a strong Republican Countj of
the up country, assumed a great many nirs
which were not natural to him- In Ihe Con
vention ho shook familiarly tho hands of
such notables as Judge Mackey, Senator
Patterson and Chamberlain, aud with a
pea-cock strut promenaded tho isles of the
House of Uepreseiuativcs. Saidyoiing man
attracted a great deal of notice; but unfor
tunately for him, an old aoquaintanoo of
the lonsorial profession discovoro I his smil
ing face, and while ho was talking lo a host
of big men, approached him with a broad
grin, and said:

The Charleston Sun, in Tuesday's issue,
advised (he members of the S'afc Conven
tion to vote for pay and for pay only. Its
Editor made a calculation which led him to
the conclusion tint each member should
hold his vole at. $19,000. How can the
conductors of said journal reconcile this
position with Co r professions of honesty '.'
The Sunt in one breath, condemns the He
publican party for its corruptions, and in the
next counsels its leaders to sell themselves
for money. Docs Iho Sun practice what it
pjcaches? All in nil, this is the boldest bid
for the favor and countenance of bad and
corrupt men, that we have ever seen disgrace
