Wednesday Morning, Jan. 25, 1871
The special messago of Governor
Scott on the Union and Laurens trou
blos is judicious and temperate, and
calculated to causo all good citielens to
unito in an earnest effort to secuf-e
domestic security ttid peace. Lynch
law is almost always brutal, and inva
riably reacts against those who resort
to it with terriblo retribution. In
this aiffair in Union both races can
read this oft repeated lesson of expo
rienee. But it is nti otly in his ef
fort to secure a propier administration
of the law that G-overnor Scott do
servcs commendation ; the corres
piondent of the Charleston News tells
u~s that he now statids the only faith.
ful guardian of the treasury, and that
the abuse lie is now receiving within
hiis own party is due to his firm resis.
tanee to schemes of dishonestyj rob
hery and pluinder, to which he cannot
bo induced to give his consent. Is it
so, then, indeed, that in the reol2ection
of Governor Scott, the people of
South Carolina have been gifted with
a blessing in disguise ?
Riespie-t flor Onsels CalIIIng,.
President Russell Middleton, of the
Charleston College, makes a good
point in saying, that one prevalent
fault in Smith Carolina has been a
t --. ivper iwpect for Agricul
ture a a callag'. We have respected
men whose capital was in land and in
planting, but not the agricultural
skill and industry of the laborer.
We believe it to be a universal fault
everywhere that few mon respoet their
culling as they should. Nor do they
respect a bit more the callings of their
neighbora. We are all liable to fall
into slovenly habits ) having acquired
about eotirgh to make out with, we
aire iapt to cease to acquire more.
Ilence clergymen and toachots come
to be regarded as respectable miendi
eants, and often are little more.
Lawyers are regarded as tricky petti
foggers, and they justify the charge.
Plh'ysicians are regarded as ignorant
qaiks, andl they are little better.
Merchants are regarded as narrow
miindled counter-jumpers, and the mia
jurity are exactly that1 and no more.
And finally, since few ever think of
themselves otherwise than oth
era t hink of them, the whole
tone of society is degraded by
miiost uniworthy conceptions of the
dignity of its various pursuits.
A true humility would, in a measure
at least, correct this. Thiere is no
ealling in which what is to be attain
ed in knowledge or in skill docs not
far exceed vill that has been attained
already. Men should therefore, look
upon their vocation as worthy of all
of their respeot and all their enthu
siaistic devotion, and seek after the
highest excellenecin it, and in it alone.
Tlhey should not dabble in e'very
olher body's pool, or rather play flpon
the beach in the shallows in front of
their own and of other people's por
tion of the conmmon shore, but confin.
ing themselves to their special call.
ing, seek greater perfection in it, arid
launch out into the deep waters ever
to be fotund in front of thmei't own
doors, if they will but strika out into
the boundless ocean of human effort
that stretches to infinity before them,

Wo believe the radical idea of no
discrimination on account of . tee,
OIler or previous condition, either as
regards the administration or the offi
cers of the law, to be purely speculaft
tive and altogether im practicable, but
we candidly admit that It is, were it
possible and practicable, both beauti
ful and sublimeo. Under it, the me
mont a legislator enters the legisla
tive hall, the moment a judge takes
his seat upon the bench or a joaror in
the box, the moment the sheriff ap
pears at the door, or the magistrate in
hisa offico9 the moment the Governor
enters upon him executive duties, that
insnt, his personal pecularities, his
social standling, kis privae v..tes o
immoralitios should be forgotten, and
the law alone, the embodiment of the
majestic presence of iipartial justice,
whib even in j-adginent remembers
mercy, should alone be remembered
by all. Devotion to right, strict ad
herenco to equity, and stern obedience
to Law, these ideas, and these only,
should pervade every branch of the
gover.nment. Party polities and 1 er

The claims which the citizens of
