-The newly-formed French ministry contains
many able men. Jules Fayre, the minister of for?
eign affairs, took"part in the revolution of 1530,
and has ever since remained the champion of
French Republicanism. He ls one of the most
eloquent aad learned advocates of the Paris bar,
and is a member of the French Cabinet. Louis
Joseph Buffet, president of the Council, was born
in IBIS; beeamea lawyer- and' entered pabilo life
afier the revolution of February, 1848, when he
was elected to the Constituent Assembly. He was
miuister of .commerce and agriculture lu Louis
Napoleon's Qr?t'Cablnes, and remained aloof from
official life until 18G4, when he was aanccessful
candidate for the Corps L?gislatif. He there sup?
ported the imperial government, bat strenuously
demanded liberal concessions. On the accession
of M. Oillvier to office, he was appointed minister
of nuance, and acquired the reputation of being
an able public official. The minister of Instruc?
tion, Jules Simon, has held many public positions,
and has written a large number of valuable
works, and promoted thc establishment or co-ope?
rative organizations among the working classes.
Lonis Picard, the minister of Justice, was admit?
ted to the French bar in 1844, and entered public
life In 1858. Jules D?faut e, the minister of finance,
ia In his seventy-third year, and is an old polr leal
associate of M. Thiers. He supported the Repub?
lic, took office u ider Loi.is Napoleon, and retired
from public Ufa after the coup d'?tat ot Decem?
ber, 1851. Le Flo, the war minister, ls a graduate
of the renowned military school or St. Cyr, and
was expelled rrom France In 1852, was permitted to
return In 1859, and, until.the pr?tent juncture, has
takenruo part ia politics alnoe that time. Lam?
brecht, the minister of commerce, isa civil en?
gineer by profession, and wa3 several times
mayor of Lamana.
Thc Proposed Changes in the Election
The crowning infamy of the last Geueral
Assembly was tue enactment ol' the Gene?
ral Ejection Law-a measure framed with a
vlew.to stifle Hie voice of the people of South
Carolina whenever that voice might be ad?
verse to the clique which represented, the
^Eadica?pajrty oPV& ?Sate. After the elec?
tion oftest fall th?Taw" was denounced even
by some of the very partisans who bad profit*
ed by its iniquitous provisions; and we are
glad to see that the Committee on-Privileges
und Elections -?bare at last reported favor
ubly upon a bill so to amend the existing law
as at least to remove some of its most un?
just aud odious features. The bill, in brief,
provides that ei thc three Commissioners of
Election in each county, and of thc three
Managers of Erection at each precinct, one
at least shall be from each political party;
that ear ii ballot box shall be publicly opeu
, ed and inspected, to see it is empty and se?
cure, aud then locked just before the openirig
of the poll, and tho keys retained by the
managers, and Email not be opened during
the election; that at the close of the election
the managers and clerks shall immediately
proceed to count the ballots and makea'writ
ten statement ol' the result, which statement,
together with-tire pell list, is tobe delivered
within three days to the Commissioners of
I Election; that the commissioners shall then
.proceed publicly to canvass the returns of
3he-Managers ol'' Election, and from said re?
turns make such statements as the nature
of the election shall require, and, within
three days of tbe time of their first meeting
:is a Board of County Commissioners, trans?
mit the same to the Board of State Commis?
sioners, together with any and all papers re?
lating to the elect io a ; and that upon such
statements the Slate Commissioners shall
then proceed publicly to determine and de?
clare what persons have, by the greatest
number of voles, been duly elected.
The committee, in reporting these amend?
ments to the Senate, take occasion to coin
?1 cud them " ns most salutary, just ami
".wise. They secure to all citizens and
" voters an opportunity to know that their
" own ballots ure received aud counted as
" '.hc-y de-:r<n ."CB to-lie."- And. uniese thc
Geio?^A^ttbrJ?^resolver!* to Tr?miplt;
upon'thffpwpfe's fights, rflid set at durance
every consideration of public justice and
legrslntive decency , trie amendments will be
promptly adopted. .
?- A ? ?-. ,
'i^pW Clerk of ?he Weather."
This hitherto mythical personage bids fair
ere loug to assume a practical and certainly
a- very beneficent kind ot .existence. Our
readers wai hove noticed tiaily In our col?
umns, of late, a carefully prepared state
-mejit of the weather of the previous twenty
four hours, from all parts of the United
States, and a "forecast" o? the probable
weather of the ensuing twelve hours, pre?
pared and sent to us, each night, by the
Storm and Sitial Service Branch of the
United States War Department, at Washing?
ton. The publication of these reports marks
a new era in physical science, and opens to
our view an unexplored and singularly in?
teresting field of human knowledge. This
storm and signal service, by giving notice of
approaching storms, ho3 already saved thou?
sands of dollars in shipping and cargoes on
the great lakes, and after a little more prep?
aration and organization it will become of
incalculable beueQt to farmers, by giving
them notice, by menus of caunon-liring at
all the towns in the land, of the approach of
storms, likely to injure newly cut crops.
Se mit ft (? Money Down East.
The West is growing jealous of Ihe opera?
tions of Eastern Insurance Companies
among lier people, and stringent legislation
is talked of to compel such companies to in?
vest the profits arising from their business
in the State whence they derive it. Il is
said that eiglit millious are annually drawn
from Ohio, and seven millions from Indiana,
as profits o? Eastern Insurance Companies,
and from all the Western States there is a
large and constant druin of money to pay
insurance. The same is unquestionably true,
to a greater or less extent, of our own and
every Southern" State. If a reform, such
as that proposed, be practicable, the sooner
it is' inaugurated the bettor. We need every
dollar that we can keep at home.
Congressional Plums tor Charleston.
It is pleasant, after all, to get even an oc?
casional crumb from the Federal table. Our
attentive correspondent at Washington tele,
graphs that the two appropriation bills, pass?
ed yesterday by the House of Representa?
tives, include appropriations of fifty thous?
and dollurs for repairing Fort Sumter, aud
twenty-five thousand dollars for the im?
provement of Charleston harbor. This will
do very well for one day.
