Tlie General Elections.
Some time ago a lull was introduced in
the House o? Representatives, providing for
the manner nf conducting thc next general
elections. This was referred to thc Committee
on Privileges ami Elections, who reported a
substitute, wilie!- was ina.Ic tutspecial order
for Monday last. The new bill is Cramed
generally upon the plan or the act of Sep?
tember, 186S, under which tho election? of
1868 were held; but there are some modifi?
cations and alterations worthy of more than
a passing notice.
The elections take place on the third Wed?
nesday of October next, and on the same
day in every second year. Commissioners
ol' elections and managers of elections are
to be appointed in thc same manner as un?
der tko act of 13G8. Ko change is made in
thc hours during which the polls must be
kepi oiien : but it is provided that the regis?
tration books used in the Inst general elec?
tions shall be the guide of thc managers ns
(0 thc persons entitled lo rotc. No provision
is made in the bill, as reported to us, for a
revision of thc registration lists, and it ?3
evident that if the registration lists of 1868
be used for the elections of 1S70 a great
wrong will be done all classes of voters.
Since the last elections there have been
many chandos in thc different counties.
Some have gained in voting strength and
others 'nave lost. A large number of young
men are of age and entitled to vote this
yea;1, who were not eligible one year or two
years ago. In thc same way. twelve months'
r?sidence beim: necessary to tho possession
of the privilege of voting, many good citi?
zens were excluded at thc last elections who
are fully competent lo vote at this time. Thc
State Constitution expressly declares that
every male citizen, twenty-one years old, who
is a resident of thc State for one year and of
the county in which lie oilers to vote
for sixty days, shall be entitled to rote
for all officers that are now. or hereafter
may be, elected by the people. This is plain
enough and positive enough. And if the
Legislature recmirc that thc registration
baals ypt?Uu ?&tesijfflgmi ?s*s<frwfr>fr
sons entitled to vote, the people will be de?
prived by their representatives o? one of the
most important privileges conferred upon
them, and guaranteed to them, by the funda?
mental law of the State. Tho law o? 1S68
requires the managers to revise thc registra?
tion lists for a period of titree days, adding
the names of all qualified persons not already
registered, and striking off the names of all
disqualified persons. This was a just and
proper provision, and if a fair and free elec?
tion is at ail desirable, thc election law now
before thc General Assembly should provide
for a thorough purging and revision of the
registry before every general election.
The sections relating to the presence of
State constables and peace officers at the
polis, an.l to thc closing of barrooms during
the progress of the elcctious, appear to bc
taken bodily from thc act of lSliS. It may
be well to remind the General Assembly that
the presence of a swann of special consta?
bles at tlie polls may be made au instrument
of oppression, instead of a means of protec?
tion. Tlie experience of the municipal elec?
tions of November, ISfJS, indicates thc dan?
ger that may arise, if the control of the polls
bo given to partisan officials and 'heir depu?
ties. All that the people desire is that every
mau may, without, molestation, deposit his
ballot for the candidates of Iiis choice. At
the last elections in this city, hundreds of
colored men and white men were driven from
tlie polls by thc threats of a mob of negro
men and boys. This is altogether wrong,
and is a direct, invitation to the most peace ?
ful citizens to take up arms that they may
obtain thc protection which the law docs not
give them. The people desire to see a full
ami frank expression of tlie popular voice,
and the minority will bow to the decision of
the majority. It is proper that the polls
should be guarded in case of violence or riot ;
but the General Assembly owe it to the people
to reject any proposition which will place tlie
voters at the mercy of a few unscrupulous
politicians. Violence and injustice, like
curses, come home to roost. Gerrymander?
ing and repeating might answer for once,
bat will surely bring to mia thu party by
whom they are practiced.
There are other provisions of tim proposed
bili wilie!) require to be carefully considered
before adoption. Tilt- General Assembly bas
in ils hau ls immense power, and can give
the people a law which will be impartial and
fair in all its pai ls. And tin; public are cu?
rious tj know whether the new election bill
is to bc a bill for thc security of the whole
Slate, or a Radical dodge , for retaining in
office the present leaders of thc party.
The Case of the Hon. Alfred Huger.
The whole community will bc gratified io
learn that the United States Supr?me Court
has affirmed the decision of his Honor
Judge liryan, ia favor of our venerable ex
postmaster, in the suit brought against him by
thc government to recover certain monies held
by him, officially, al thc outbreak of the
war. Tho or.i-.-r dismissing the writ of error
was issued on Friday last. The official
record i:i the case reads ns follows :

But Whittemore need not be uneasy. His

JUDGE VERNON, of the Seventh Circuit, is
charged with being an incorrigible lippier.
One of the members of the House said on
Monday that Judge Vernon was "a sot and
drunkard," and "a disgrace to tho bench."
If the Senate Judiciary Committee are really
investigating this matter, it is due to Judge
Vernon, no less than to the public, that
their report be made at a very early day.

SORGO SUGAR AND REFINED
We would Invite thc attention of Planters to
the consideration of some of the advantages In
the cultivation or SORGO as a Crop, which are,
the small amount or labor; the hardy character
or the plant in Its ability to endure, without ma?
terial injury, both drought and wet; its freedom
from the attack of worms; its carly maturing,
and the fact that the Seed and every part of the
plant ts of great value.
lu consequence Oi the Imperfect method
hitherto adopted In preparing the Juice of thia
Cane, there has arisen a prejudice, and the belief
that Sugar could not be produced, but only a very
Inferior Syrup. But, by the discovery of the
Southern Process, these opinions have been com?
pletely reversed In the minds of aU those who
have examined and tested this Process, as they
rea!:/.c that not only pure Syrup, superior lo the
best Chemical Syrups of the Refineries, ls pro?
duced, but also Sugar equal to the best New Or?
