THE ABBEVILLE ELECTION CASE.
In the Senate, to-day, W. R. Hoyt (from the
Committee on Privileges aad Elections, to which
was Recommitted a report made by them, about
ten days ago, on the report of the county com?
missioners for Abbeville County, on an election
which was held on the 25th day of May. 1S69, to
choose a senator for said county.) submitted the
following report, under the instructions given
them by the Senate: 1
Tour committee do not deem lt necessary to
send for further evidence in the oase, as the evi?
dence already before your committee ls sufficient
w io enable thom to comp,/ wita the instructions
al this cody.
According to the testimony of Mr. L. P. Gunin,
the pol! at Calhoun's MlBs was not opened until
half-past 8 o'clock, A. M., while section seventh of
an act of the General Assemblv, approved thc
26th day of September, A. D. 1808, requires that
the poll should be opened at o o'clock, A. M.
Secondly. It ls shown by the testimony of thc
same gentleman that he saw the chairman of the
Board of Managers appoint a person on that day
to act as manager of elections at tho product of
Thirdly. It ls shown by Ute testimony of Mr.
L. P. Guffln that three persons registered at the
precinct of Child's Cross Roads, but it is not
shown whether they were qualified or not un?
der Section Seeond of Article Eight of the Consti?
tution of this Slate; and bore your committee
beg leave to state that lt is evident to them that
the Board of County Canvassers were of the opln
! ion that it was the duty of the Board of State
Canvassers to throw out bad or Blegal votes, and
they themselves had not the power so to do, from
the fact that evidence to prove illegality, Intimi?
dation or fraud accompanied Ute statement of the
votes sent to tte State canvassers.
Your committee have been famished by Mr.
Guffln with twelvo affidavits showing that
there were many persons who were intimidated
to each an extent that they were afald to and did
not vote. These adda vita are corroborated by
the testimony of Mr. Thomas A. Sullivan, who
states that he was at the Bradley's Mills Precinct
on the day of said election, and that there were
betwoan thirty and forty persons driven from the
pod bym embers of the Democrat:-; party aud not
allowed to vo'o.
Mr. James S. Cothran, who. according to the
statement of the Board of County Canvassers, re?
ceived, the wichest number of votes for senator,
was not serv id with a copy of the protest setting
forth the grounds upon walch his election was to
be contested, but hearing that Mr. Guffln claimed
the seat and .-.hat lt was claimed that voters were
Intimidated at Calhoun's Mills, furnished yonr
committee with ten affidavits, setting forth, that
the election was orderly and that all had tho
right to vote as they desired.
In accordance with the resolution referring the
ax>rt of this committee back to them, yonr com
ttee beg leave to state tb rn the vote for State
senator, according to the statement of the board
Of county commissioners, was as follows:

Yonr committee are well satisfied from the tes
. timony before them that there was no legal or
" ganlaatlon?of the pell at Calhoun's Mills, as there
was'but one legally appointed manager of elec?
tion present: also, that the poll was not opened
until half-post 8 o'clock, and whereas, according
to laftEtlt should have been opened at 6 o'clock A.
yLTxmt- therefore your committee respectfully
submit that, whereas, from the facts elicited lu
?heir investigation, the election at Calhoun's
iDUs is nail and void for thc reasons heretofore
eta ted; and whereas If the vote at such poU be
thrown out. the said L. L. Gatun would have a

CHARLESTON, S. C., December 10,1SS!
Hon. D. T. Corbin, ivesfOr.i oj the Senate,
lamb?a, S. C.
SIR-A charge has been made against rae,
appears from your published proceedings, tv
member of your honorable body, in his place
the floor of the Senate, that I have as a Judge b<
unjust to the colored people of ray circuit.
if this ls true, then 1 am unworthy to retain :
important aud responsible position I now occu
if false, 1 am entitled to a vindication as public
the accusation. Inasmuch ns I am unable
mee: it in this general and sweeping form, I r
pectfully ask or your honorable body that i
charges be made specific, end for a full and th
eugh Investigation of my ofG ci al conduct.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
E. B. CARPENTER,
As soon as thc above letter from Judge C
penter wa? received, Hayae .sarcastically; ssl
if there was one of asimilar character from i
judge of the Fourth Circuit, (Judge John M. R
land;) if there was such he would like to have
read. This remark created a little laughter, a
the approving nods to Haync from some few
the senators seemed to say, what was ir. fen
from hts (Ilayne'B) remarks; that Judge Rutlani
official conduct would not stand the ?est of an
vestigation like that of Judge Carpenter.
The letter of Judge Carpenter was read in t
House, also, and on motion of DeLarge, w
after saying "Oh ! ho, that ls all right," moved
-ecelve it as information, which motion w
adopted. Some ene of thc colored members sent
a resolution requesting the Eouse to appoln
committee of six to propose articles of impea?
ment against Judge Rutland. Thc speaker sc
the resolution back, and stated that as thc
were no charges of official misconduct before t
House, the resolution was not iu order.
Tho joint resolution of the House to take a i
cess from the 22d of December to the 5th of Jan
arv, was brought up in thc Sen&tc to-day. Hay
moved to amend it by substituting 23d for 22
Arnim moved to amend by inserting 4th inste,
of 5th. Uaync's amendment waa adopted. T
members of thc General Assembly will, after al?o
twenty-two days of wors, have a rest of twel
days, at $6 pcrday. '
DON'T "LAY OUT, M?LZSn."
A bill, introduced by Hayne ia the Senate t
day, which received Rs first reading, provid
that lt shall be the duty of each enrolling oiric
of this State to open, at some convenient pla?
within each township or polling precinct, an omi
for thc purpose of enrolling such classes of pc
sons as are described in section 2 of an act cnt
tied "Aa act to organize and govern the milit
or tho State of South Carolina;" that ten day
notice bc given, by publication in a newspape
of the location of the office, and that if any pe
son liable to be enrolled shall neglect or fall i
present, or cause to bc presented, hie name f(
enrollment, he shall be subject to a fine of nt
more than twenty-five dollars.
To-day, in the Senate, the Committee on Road
and Bridges reported a bill, which received il
first reading, providing that the charter of Rat
towle'sBridge, over the Stono River, in st, Paul'
Parish, Ce lie ton County, bc vested In Mrs. Elm
beth S. Messervey and her heirs, and that th
rates of toll be thc same as provided by law; prc
vlded that voters going and returning from th
polls, and children gelug lo aud from school, b
passed free or charge.
EDUCATION AND QUARANTINE.
Joint resolutions of the House, requesting th
Governor to inform thc General Assembly wha
action he had taken to secure for the State th
benefits of an act passed by Congress dona tin;
public lands to the several States und Territories
which may provide colleges for the benefit o
agriculture and the mechanical arts, and ateo ti
establish workhouses at the Charleston quarun
tine station, were submitted to the Senate am
THE BONDHOLDERS' BILL,
Otherwise known as the bili to "better proteo
the holders of Insurance policies in the State,'
was brought up in the House to-day for its sccont
reading and passed without a dissenting voice.
The hurried and undignified manner in which ii
was passed in thc Sec ate was severely comment
ed upon, ai were its provisions also, by many ol
the members, and it was thought that when thc
bill came into their hands it would meet with
THE EDUCATIONAL BILL.
Thc special order for one o'clock-the report ol
the Committee on Education concerning a bill en?
titled "A bill to establish and maintain a system
of free common schools for the State of South
[ Carolina "-was taken up about half-past one
o'clock, and discussed uutil after three o'clock.
After a long discussion on section 2d, providing
that a school commissioner shall be elected la
each county at the general election in October,
1370, it was postponed Indefinitely. Section 21st,
providing that the Govcrnorshall lill all vacancies
caused by death or failure to qualify, and section
22d, providing that thc school commissioner shall
visit each school in hts county at least once dur?
ing the regular term, received their second read?
ing. Sectiou 23d provoked a long discussion, lt
provides timi it shall bc the duty of thc school
commissioner "to see that In every school under
his care there shall be taught, orthography, read?
ing, writing, arithmetic, geography, grammar,
history or thc United States, thc principles of thc
Constitution and laws of thc United States and
or this State, and good behavior."
Corbin thought that it was thc intention
of thc framers of the 23d section to "burst
wide open thc heads of lite children of
the free schools or thc State," and a?> he
did not wish to Bee their heads, nor those of
the teaohers neither, split open by cramming too
mnch or the various studies mentioned, he would
move to amend by inserting the clause provided
that they are far enough advanced. Jilison
thought the "senator from Charleston" attempt?
ed to bo sarcastic in his amendments; anyhow,
he wanted a "square light over thc bill," and
didn't object to any kind ol discussion; but he
thought that if some of the senators had taken in
their course all of the studies alluded to, they
would be none the worse off: in the State (Ver?
mont) from which thc "senator from Charleston"
hailed, they taught the children tho principles
of the constitution and the laws or thc Culled
States, and he didn't sec why it couldn't bc done
in South Carolina.
Corbin, Interrupting. Oh, well, Vermont, .'rora
which I came, is a very good state to emigrate
from, and I hope South Carolina will always bc a
good State to emigrate to.
Nash, colored, to Corbin. Do I understand you
to say that Vermont is a good State to emigrate
from, and a bad on? to go back to?
Corbin. Oh no, lt is u very good State: it always
protected ?he colored people; there was never any
After this by-play, sections 23, 24, 23 and 20
were passed through their second reading.
Section 27, providing "that each county school
commissioner shall receive as compensation Tor
his services the sum of-dollars, payable
quarterly by the county treasurer," was taken
up. Corbin moved that the blank be filled np by
lase: .lng the words one thousand, and that a
clause be added providing that the commissioner
for Charleston County receive $1500. Nash wauted
the commissioners generally to receive $coo, and
those of Beaufort and Charleston Counties $1000.
Donaldson though: $50S each was enough. .Hilson
mentioned no sum, but argued that if the commis?
sioners attended to their duties they would have a
great deal to do; that lt would taketwenty year6 of
hard work to advance the free schools of this
State to thc height of efficiency now ocenpicd by
those at the North. The Land Commission, in the
persen of Leslie, began to show signs of an erup?
tion. Finally the "crathur" opened, and
threw out a stream of abuse or thc Democrats
whom lt believed aever were ncr never will nc
educated, tried Jlllson ever so hard, and there?
fore they shan't have any laud. In passing
he said THE NEWS "was the press of the state."
[Tins was intended as sarcasm, but some of the
senators didn't soe lt in that way, and cast In?
dignant looks landward, as much as to say, just
listen at lt praising a Democratic sheet.] Further,
it was of the opinion that Hie commissioners
wouldn't work hard. In fact, there was one rrom
Darn well County who waa a noble fellow, he
worked about three days in the year and he
would not work any harder; he could draw
stoney, though he had taken the census, that ls,.
he had taken it from thc books of thc deputies,
and had drawn $800. Thc land commissioner,
wound up by hinting tb"* thc increase of salaries
was not much needed, hui would give good offices
to some people, whereupon Corbin arose and said
that probably he would take one. That state?
ment being within the range of probability, Les-'
lie replied, I have no doubt of it; I thought so.
A motion for adjournment, which was carried,:
interrupted the discussion, which was then con-,
fined mainly to tr marks about what salaries were '
given to school commissioners m the Northern
States. Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont and
other States were heard from; in fact, a stranger
who should have happened to have listened to
thc debate, and Jicard thc senators say "In my
State (New York, Vermont, or other Northern
States, as the ?ase might tit,; so and so is the
case," would have supposed that the Senate of,
South Carolina was the United States Sonate, In
which neither South Carolina nor any other
Southern State was represented.
PUT THEM OUT. 1
As the correspondent of THE Nif wg walked lute
the House this morning, Just before lt was called
to order, he surmised from the "black looks," ;
(blacker than usual) of the members that some?
thing was wrong, that something umuna) was
afloat. His surmise was correct. Shortly after
the House was caked to order, C. D. Uayne, the
postmaster of Aiken, who has uo nose, offered the
Resolved by the House of Representatives, that
the reporter of THI: DAILY NEWS, and all persons
connected in any manner with said paper, be and

DeLargc, colored, hoped the resolution wonld
not be adopted, saying substantially, I soe. no

press that freedom and privilege guaranteed to
them under the laws of this State and thc United
st ates. I am aware they sometimes carry abuse
to the extreme that all good men condemn it. I
myself care nothing what any newspaper lu this
or any other Slate says in relation to my official
actions. Let them say what they please. If you

Railroad wat taken up in the House again to day.
DeLargc at on e took thc Moor and read a long
mendal rrom the railroad company protesting
against the righi or way being granted, on the
ground that ll would conflict with thc Interests
or thc road anti or its charter. Sma-lls, colored,
next had thc fiosr, and Intimated that Elliott had
not acted as he promised he would. Elliott
branded thc statement as raise, whereupon
Smalls said Elliott was the roaring lion or the
House, but there was one among the members
(and that ouc was Smalls) who did not stand lu
rear or him. The Speaker rapped Smalls hilo his
seat, and the whole subject under discussion was
rererrod to thc Commute- on Railroads.
Rowley's bill to amend thc act providing for
general elections and conduct of the same, was
read in thc House to-day. It provides that char?
tered bodies, which shall discharge employees
because of their political opinions, shall have
their charters taken away; and if planters and
others discharge their employees because ol' their
political opinions, they shall be fined $1000 and
be Imprisoned at the discretion of the Judge.

The Importance of raUfyiug tho Fifteenth

fiiencs of Chief Justice Chase ina novel and In?

tial Democrats, who favor tho nomination or
Judge Chase for President by the Democratic
Convention of 1S72, that thc ratification of Hie
amendracnt will be of infinite service to tl?
Democratic partisans of the Chief Justice, Inas?
much as he can bring to his support un Immense

except with the aid of the negro vote. The Chief
Justice having always been on the side of thc
colored men, lt is claimed that he has their sym?
pathy and confidence to a greater extent than
any man in thc country. In this view of thc
case, tt ts not Improbable that many of the Demo?
crats will regret to sec Hie amendment become a
part of the constitution.
A Washington letter to thc Baltimore Gazette
Th re is a rumor In town to-day that informa?
tion has been received from Democratic sources
at Albany that noeuort will be made by thc Leg?
islature of New York to repeal the vote of that
State In favor of thc Fifteenth amendment (so
called.) From all I can learn, 1 think there can
bc now no doubt that said "amendment" will, at
all events, be declared adopted by this adminis?
tration under any circumstances. Whatever
Georgia, New York or Ohio may do, or refrain
rrom doing, therefore, will not, In the least, ar?
rec? thc action or the government, either in the
Legislature or executive brandies. The country
must bear with this additional outrage until next
Cougress, when lt is to be hoped that the posses?
sion orono or the Houses or the National Legisla?
ture will enable Democratic States to wipe out
not only this bnt the whole series or unauthorized
enactments-'.amendments''-indicted upon us
thc past nine years.

Thc Washington correspondent or the Balli?

Thc practical ett'eet of Trumbull's MB (ir itbe

subject them to trial by court martial, it pro?
fesses to declare what thc law already ls. Some
arrangement, however, (the exact natura of
which ls not. known,) has bren made bv which
the lives of such men are to bc secured. If a ease
shall arise under this last enac' ment, doubtless
the Supreme Court, would decide it to be uneon
st.tution.il and void, (If hy re-ignatlnn. like that

The Cotton Tax.
A dispatch to thc N w York World says:
Tlic argument of thc cotton tax before the Su?
premo Conrt has been finished, Mr. Hoar and Mr.
Field speaking for the government, and P. Phillips,
of this oity, and Benjamin H. Curtis, ol Boston,
against ttie constitutionality of the tax. Thc sum
Involved In this particular case is only twenty
five hundred dollars, but the total amount to be
affected by the decision is estimated as high as
twenty millions of dollars, lt ?loes not follow,
however, even if Hie unconstitutionality ol' the
tax bc affirmed by the court, that this entire snm
will bc at once refunded. Probably only the
monies will be promptly refunded where thc par
tics neide regular protest and appeal as required
by law. 'It ls conjectured that this has been done
In comparatively few cases; but If thc decision
be averse to thc tax, it will follow that all this

THE LABOR QUESTION.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
Thc question of labor among farmers has as- j
Bumed a ecrlois nature. There never was a time ?
when the energy, patience and tact of the South?
ern planter have been put to such severe tests.
He is sarronnded by a concatenation of circum?
stances Bufilcicnt lo uiar thc hopes of a more
Since the close or thc war to the present he has
roanaped, by hook or crook, to coo: ru and more or
less labor, tim r.istcm deteriorating, though,
each year, and thc supply decreasing, until ?niily
it hue become almost entirely unavailable. Thc
course which contributed most to render thc first
part-of this assertion true, has been thc existence
in our mit ?st of Radical demagogues, who make
political capital ont of the negroes on every ques?
tion which pel?tes to them and the native Whites,
That which has lent most to raider thc second
true has b m ihe injudicious policy of the laud
owners In renting their lands to the only laborers
whom, under existing circumstances, tho?' could
possibly expect to obtain.
These canses, together with the effect of the re?
cent Labor Convention, which were represented
from nearly every portion of .the State,'have re?
duced therpraspects for farm-laborers thc coming
year to still smaller proportions.
Farmern everywhere favor thc Introduction of
the Chinese. No matter what may bc their status,
whether they be law-abiding or not, or have any
sense of moral responsibility, thc cry' ls-let them
?me. Au old gentleman the?other day made the
profusivc wish trna they might laud herc iu less
than twenty-four hours thicker than bail stones
ever fell. He afterwards qualified it by adding, "if
we coule" feed them."
That thc South does need more Labor to de?
velop her resources and make her more prosper?
ous Is a palpable fact. The party In power in
this Slate is opposed to any movement which has
for Us object au Increase of labor. We, therefore,
cannot expect any aid from thc State in getting
Immigrants here. But, Mr. Editor, cannot Tun
N>:wt, os thc representative paper of Cue State,
suggest some plan by widen this resnU may be
accomplished, the opposition of Scott and his
sable subjects to Hie contrary notwlthstnndingt
Let the land-owners and all others who may
favor the project, form Immigration societies in
every county of the State, and every person on
becoming a member contribute an admission fee.
After the societies have been thoroughly organ?
ized,and the membership increased to Its maxi?
mum, let each member pay Into thc treasury of
hts society a certain percentage of the State tax,
to beupplled to defraying the expenses of Immi?
gration-the rate of percentage, of course, to be
left, to a vote of each society.
lu this way each member would pay propor?
tionally, and-'by fixing the rate sutllciently high a
munificent sum could be realised. Let every man
who becomes a member do so with the determi?
nation to vote for as high a rate nf percentage on
his Suite tax as lils means will permit. Then let
him make his ^arrangements accordingly to meet
the payment. If he ls a farrrter, let him plant to
make a bale or two more of cotton; If a merchant,
let him reduce lils expenses ol living. I/ct every
one malee temporary sacrifices for the benefits he
will ultimately receive.
After each organization has paid its assessed
amount, let thc whole ho turned over to an honest
and reliable agent, elected by the different.antic?
ues, whose duty lt shall bc to apply the funds
thus placed lu his hands to defraying thc ex?
penses for transportation of Immigrants. On
their arrival, let oach county receive a prorata
number accor.liug to the sums raised, to he dis?
tributed to the highest bidder for thc price of
labor among thc members of thccoclety. In this
way a general diffusion of immigrants would be
made throughout thc State. They would become
satisfied by the presence of numbers, and at thc
same time receivcihe highest prices their labor
would command. Competition would drive the
negro to work, aiid. ln the course of a few years,
thc supply of labor would equal thc demand.
Of course, all cannot, at first, expect to obtain
Immigrants. But the introduction of other labor?
ers will supply the demand of some, and no doubt
create a competition that will place the negro
within command Of those wiio may fall to get Im?
I offer these suggestions with a hope that the
subject under consideration may be agitated, and
the plan proposed Improved upon to a successful
termination. More labor ls what wc need, and
until we get lt onr progress as agriculturists and
manufacturers will be comparatively slow.

TIVE.-A free and regular circulation of thc blood
is essential to health. It places thc whole system
in a state of active defence against all unwhole?
some Influences, and ls an especial safeguard
against the Inimical effect of sudden changes of
temperature, and of dam) and cold.
If proper attention were paid to this important
fact, there would not only be a great decrease n
thc number of cases of stomach, bowel und renal
complaints, but also In thc number of deaths by
consumption and other pulmonary diseases.
At this period or the year, when thc dividing
line whleh separates a genial from an inclement
season has just been passed, a course of H0STET
TER'S STOMACH HITTERS will bc found o? In?
valuable service in improving thc condition of the
vital fluid and gently stimulating its flow. Vio?
lent coughs and colds, like intermittent fever, are
thc frequent effects of a chilly atmosphere upon
a debilitated organization. Diseases of the kid?
neys often proceed from the same source. How
essential it is, therefore, for persons of feeble con?
stitution, to invigorate the vital organization at
thc commencement of winter. Fortified by warm
clothing without, and HOSTETTER'S BITTERS
within, the frail and delicate may brave with
impunity an amount of exposure and hardship
which, under other circumstances, would pros?
trate them on a bed of sickness. Let them con?
