There is anothqr bopeful piece of
news from South Carolina. Gov.
Chambe.lain appointed Judgu Thos.
J. Mackey to investigate the oontinu.

County. Judge Mackey is one of
the ablest,and most outspoken Re
publicans in the South, and has ro
ceived n any marksof favor from the
State and Fedoral Administration.
He laye the blame chiefly upon the
gross ablisos in the county govern.
ment-, and declares that the habit of
dolored.wilitia o3licors in calling out
ainIed iiien for the settlement of per.
sonal quarrels between whites and
blacks is a means of oppression and a
prime cause ofA4sorder. The same
view was prbeoented in special ,cor
rspondonue of the Tribune several
.onths ago, and applies to nearly all
the. distur,i4noes of the peace that
have oequrred in South Carolina
during the last four years. By
abating the militia nuisance Gov.
