nouncing not the coming of a great reformer,
bot ef an indignant people to break the scep?
tre of their power and hurl t'iem from their
L places. Almost ovo y ?en te a oe of his epoeoh ooo*
tsiaedia allusion to Congressmen suoh denun?

-A New York letter, dated on the 1st inst,
says: During the past week the wholesale trade
has been quite active. Most of the buyers now
in town aro from the west. The Southern trude
is nearly over, and business men tell me it has
been a good deal bette- than they anticipated.
The South hos purohased largely of dry goodB,
boot, and shoes, bats, hardware, Ac, and
bought straight through a better class of goods
than in any season since the war. I am told
by Western men now stocking upfcr spring
that the prospects for business in the West
are better than they wero this time last year.
Money, they say, is- rather scares at present,
but they believe it will soon become more
plentiful, and that every man who manages his
business carefully will oome out well at the
end of the year. The publishing trade, too, is
looking up, and promises well. A large num?
ber of new works are in press, and the publish?
ers calculate on better times than they had last
year. The city retail trade hangs back, except
on Broadway, where it always sets in a month
earlier than anywhere else. The small deal?
ers still have quite enough to do to make both
ends meet, and as many of them will have to
pay higher rents this year thanHast, they are
not likely to make much money. But since
the war tho small dealers haye not made much
money any season, and from the tendency of
trade to centralize where there is large capital,'
the small dealers seem likely to ?have hard
work all along.
MONDAY MOSSING, APRIL 5, 1869.
Justice Solomon 1?. H?ge.
To be misunderstood is one of the sad
penalties of greatness; and it is not sur?
prising that an obstinate public should have
doubted the patriotic purity of the motives
which led Solomon L. H?ge, Associate Jus?
tice of the Supreme Court of the State, .to
contest the election to Congress of the Hon.
J. P. Reed. There is no doubt that the
election was fairly conducted, and that Mr.
Reed was legally eleoted. But lofty minds
heed little the simplicities of actual fact;
the intellectual giant being willing, when
the end is important, to choose the readiest
means, without regard to the minor tones
whioh harmonize the lives of smaller and
less conspicuous men.
Justice H?ge could not have been guided
by personal ambition, or parly prejudice,
or even the remembrance of the dreadful
day when, filled with terror, he fled across
the country and slipped off to^aehington
to pray for protection against rebel insub?
ordination. With him considerations so
puny would have no weight. There was
no hate in his heart. Samuel Johnson
would not have loved him. And if he de-,
sires to leave the Supreme beach, and take
his seat in Congress by the side of the im?
maculate Bowen and cooing Whittemore, it
is because of his belief that the change
will be of benefit to the State. No feeling
that he could not remain on the bench with?
out making Radicalism more than evex-ri?
diculous directed his actions. Had he not
proved himself a Democrat at heart by sug?
gesting the powder and ball treatment as a
quietus for turbulent negroes ? Should he
not make bis orthodoxy unimpeachable by
leaving a' position that paid well, for a po?
sition whose emoluments need only be lim?
ited by the modesty and ingenuity of the
The circumstances under whioh he was
eleoted to the Supreme beuoh were distres?
singly peculiar. One Chief Justice and
two A B roc?ate J UB ti ces were to be o ho sen.
Mr. Corbin, of-Rhode Island; Senator from
Charleston and United. States District At?
torney^ was ready and...eager for .the first;
ahi when he was defeated by Judge Moses
would aqcept no lower plaoe. Colonel A
J. Willard, of New York, was eleoted as
one Associate-Justice; but the whole Radi?
car establishment, bl a ok, white and mixed,
were in a quandary to know who to take
for the other. John Morrissey was Bug
gested. Daddy Cain was proposed. But
Solomon L. H?ge was the favorite. He was
boru in Ohio, which was one thing in his
favor. He had actually-graduated as a
lawyer and had praotioed his profession for
nearly two years, which was more than
other candidates could say. He was only
thirty-two years old, so that if he bad any
crotchets on the subject of a whit? man's
government he might be turned from his
evil ways. He was Captain and Brevet
Major in the United States army, which
allowed it to be presumed that he would
worthily wield the judioial sword. He was
Acting Inspector-General of the Freedmen's
Bureau, whioh would cause him to look
after the interests of the unsophisticated
Afrioan. And-if any other argument
were wanting-H?ge must have soma? bing;
and surely he was as well qualified for a
judgeship as his electors were qualified to
make laws for the State. This settled it,
and Solomon L H?ge was elected, notwith?
standing hts own earnest conviction that he
oould as easily ride on the tale of a comet
without falling off as sit on the Supreme
bench wit h ow making it evident that he was
Solomon only in name.
And if Solomon L H?ge did not feel like
a judge, neither did ho look like one.
About him there were
"No eyes severe and beard of formal cut."
All that he was-fae seemed to be: An ea??y
tempered, smooth-faced young man, just
twice sixteen years old.
On the bench, Binoe his election in July
last, Justice H?ge has played dummy with
a patienoe whioh should entitle bim to draw
a foreign mission in the "Grant American
"Gift Enterprise" at Washington. The
feelings, however, of the new fledged ju?
tice were not pleasant. The day migbt
come when he would be obliged to open his
judicial mouth. And-what then ? So be
pined for Bowen, sighed for Whittemore,
and, like Rtohel mourning for her children,
would not be comforted. Justice H?ge se?
cured, at the first opportunity, the Radical
nomination for Congress in the Third Dis?
trict, and was defeated handsomely hy Mr.
Reed, who oarried the district by 3008 ma
! jority. This was net to be endured. Jua
i tice H?ge, though no judge of law, was a
ii ' . k 1 JL
good judge of evidence whee euch willing
witnesses as R. K. Scott, Governor, oould
be examined. Reams of paper were cov?
ered with wondrous stories of rebel out?
rages, rebel threats, and rebel intimidation.
There was not a vestige of truth in it. The
truth would not have suited a Radical Con?
gressional Committee. A resolution was
adopted by Congress that the claim of any
person disqualified by the Fourteenth Con?
stitutional ? ? ? end m en t should not be consid?
ered without the further orders of the House.
This threw out Mr. Reed until his disabili?
ties could be removed. The next step was
to declare that H?ge had a prima facie title
to Mr. Reed's seat, and H?ge now hopes to
walk over the oourse.
This is the whole eventful history. It
disproves the assertions so freely made that
the Radioal party-Scott, Corbia & Co.
sent him to Congress because they feared
that he would repeat the judgment of Solo?
mon with modern variations. And it also
disproves the statement that the Radicals
felt that, as the unconstitutionality of a trio
of their laws was coming up for decision, it
was necessary to have a figure on the ap?
pellate bench that could give a reason for
the unreason that was in him. To have
translated him for these causes would have
been monstrously unjust; for it was no fault
of Justice H?ge, but his misfortune, that
he kuew nothing of the law. And yet this
skeptical public, which will not be convinoed,
explains the whole transaction by dedaring
that Hege was elected judge because he was
no lawyer, and will take his seat in Congress
because his Democratic opponent was elec?
ted. As for the public praise which H?ge ex?
pects-we wish that he may get it.
The Abberillt Negro Militia.
We have at present no later news from
Abbeville in regard to the calling ont of
negro troops than was published in our
issue of Saturday. We learn, however, by
a private letter from Columbia, that no
arms were put in the hands of the Abbe?
ville negroes, and that the movement looked
rather to having in readiness a number of
oolored men who could be armed and called
into service at a moment's notice, than to
the immediate organization and equipment
of a negro company.
F. J. Moses, Jr., the Adjutant-General of
the State, has gone to Washington to obtain
the quota of arms allowed by the United
States Government, and as Boon as the arms
arrive negr* oompanies aro expected to be
formed in every district in the State.
TUE ANDERSON INTELLIGENCER, says:
"Tho Augusta Chronicle and Sentinel calls
"the attention of planters and others to the
"fact that the ootton tax was not repealed,
"but only suspended so far as the crop of
"1SG8 was conoerned, and says that it is
"well to bear this faotiu mind when 'pitch
" 'ing' the new crop. We think our oontem
"porary is mistaken, and that the act of Con?
gress provides that all cotton grown after
"1868 be exempted from tax."
The Intelligencer is right. The law re?
ferred to was passed at the second session
of the Fortieth Congress, and exempts from

United States after 1867. Cotton imported
from foreign countries was exempted from
duty after November 1, 1868.
