g T. P. SLIDRn, Esq., is the

0:f Mr. JAS. 11. SMITH, formerly
of this place, but now residing in
Charlotte, N. C. is our authorized
agent for the NEWS.
Mr. SirI can be found at the
Judge Aldrioh's Charge.
This charge to the Jury in the case
of the State vs. Starling and Pope will
be found in our columns to-day. It
will not abate the reader'srespect one
iota for the dignity and impartiality of
the Judiciary of South Carolina. Our
State has stood always second to no! n in
the-purity and freedom from partisan
ship of the Bench. Judge Aldrich's
charge is pecul iarly free from all mere
feeling when we consider that hc met
with strange treatment, to say the
least of it, in Charleston last Spring
by the military anthorities, and was
one of the few members of the Conven
tion which met last year, who seemed
to be extremely radical in Southern
sentiment. We believe no Northern
Judge placed in a similar situation
could so admirably maintain the lion
or and dignity of the Judiciary of his

Remember the Dead.
In some of our grave yards we ob
serve some recent -improvements in
the way of renewing the marble slabs
and head-stones that mark the resting
places of the dead. We understand
this has been done by Mr. McKenzie,
who certainly is master of his art.
Would it not be well for the com
munity generally to get Igr. McKen
zie to go over the mooments, &e., of
the deceased friends and relatives and
renew them all. It would not only be
honoring the dead, but extendirig aid
to a worthy citizen.
Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania
have gone the Republican ticket,
without' doubt, by large majorities.
This result places us of the South Ab
solutely in the power'of the faction of
Thad. Stev'ens. Congress is sustain
ed triumphantly, and ther.e can be
little doubt that the President will be
impeached and the whole South taken
under the tender mercies (?) of her
most bitter enemies.

order by telegraph to come back to Sr..

at this interview, which I am assured
was oftthe most. important character.
According to -the version pgnerally ac

ever, that the Paris Iartri'e is not quite

of France in Mexico."
COTTON TAx.-The New York
Chanmbor of Commerce, on 'Thursday
appointed a committee to p;epare a
memorial to Congress, calhng .upon
that body to repeal the absurd and ru!
inous tax upon cotton. Now that the
new crop is coming in, it is found that
the en forceement of the tax is surrounid
ed with dlifficulties. It g.ives the as
sessor a world of trouble, emnbarrasses
the planters, curtails trade, puts thq
growth of cotton under the ban of the
law, and'offers a p remiunm to foreign,
cotton-growers. The taqx, at thme stag't
was -foolish and spiteful, and was,
merely intended to injure the South.,
We have tihe finest cot,ton patch in .the
world, and if we are wise, we may re
gain the virtual monopoly of this
great b)usliness ;but to do so we must
encouragr and not hinder', the prod uc
tiotn of tha4t, valuable fibre.

The Louisville Journal, long the oppo ftt

the Union, peace, prosperity and harmony,
and to avert the radicals' threatened civil

The signs are direful. Otr nationality
seems more fearfully threateged'tan.it was
at any time during th late war,'the world's

the li-lin. abroad of a single fire-brand
from Wasington, or the bursting of one
flash bf lightning from the lurid clouds that,
hang low over the Capitol, may wrap the
land in a conflagration of civil war. And
let the Northern people remember that if
civil war comes, it will rage, and madden,
and work its desolations first in the North,
and, if the South choosd, be confined to the
North- Th.6 people of the North, with the
