THE NEWS will not be issued to-mor?

May we not hope that this day of days,
the festival of Universal Christendom, will
cheer the hearts which, through persecution
and pestilence, are heavy-laden with care ?
For these few hours may not all this people
put carking grief aside, and lind, in the
blessedness of giving, a tr?nquil joy which
they shall never know who cannot, at this
auspicious season, become as the little chil?
dren whose gala time it is ? One day in the
year devoted to compassing the happiness '
Of others ! This is the secret of the jocund
face, the dimpled cheek and the kindly
beaming eye, which make beautiful our
streets and give to sturdy grandsire and
stately matron, to graceful girl and strip?
ping gallant, to the familiar forms at the
fireside, and to the stranger within the
gates, their part in the joyousness of the
merry Christinas morn.
There is trouble enough behind. The
brave boy whom war bad spared, the proud
young mother, whose little ones sadly lisp
her name, a host of the tender and the true,
who, twelve months ago, sang on earth the
Christmas canticle, are numbered with the
saints who keep eternal Yule before the
Jasper Throne. And who sb.ll say what j
j new desolation the fnture has in store ? But
until the rising of the morrow's sun, all who
will may know the great joy which is born of
forgetfulness or 6elf.
The burdened thousands who thronged thc
thoroughfares on Saturday had said a short
good-bye to business anxiety and domestic
sorrow. They were willing laborers for \

Who shall tell the sweet story cf the whis?
pered debates which went before the modest
outlay which shall briog exquisite content
to loving hearts this day? The pondering
of tastes; the weighing of the claims of|
utile and dulce; the hiding of the gift until
the reindeers halt at the expectant thresh?
old ; the shy wonder whether the child of
larger growth will be gladdened by the
Christmas offering. These may be small
things, but they are the happiness of peo?
ples. Tney make this a day of good deeds,
wheo many a sullied page shall be washed
iuto whiteness in the chancery of heaven.
Very soon the hard battle of life must be?
gin anew, but the Yule sunshine will linger
on silvered beads as well as childish faces.
We have Yule with us as long as thought
and act are pure. And the best wish we
can offer, to friend and foe alike, on this
blessed morn, is that they may have Christ?
mas in their hearts every day of the year.
With a printed copy of the report of the
Joint Investigating Committee before us, we
can very well understand the anxiety of Gov?
ernor Scott to kill off the impeachment move?
ment before the contents of the report could
become generally known. It is signed by
B. F. Whitemore and S. A. Swails on the
part of the Senate, and by John B. Dennis,
W. H. Gardner, Jr., and Timothy Harley on
the part of the House, and forms a closely
printed pamphlet of nearly three huDdred
pages. At this time we can attempt nothing
more than a very brief summary of the facts
which the committee disclose.
The period covered by the report of the
committee extends from the time of the in?
duction into office of the present State
officials down to October 31, 1871, a supple?
mental report for the 3'ear 1S71 being in
course of preparation. From September,
18C8, to October 31, 1870, the State received,
from all sources, $4,184,783, o? which the
tax receipts were $2,005,553. The expen?
ditures for the same period were $4,183,337,
including the following disbursements : In?
terest account, $720,148; salaries, $331,488;
Legislative expenses, $510,408; and Militia,
$93,341. Before the war, the whole annual
expenses of the State were under half a mil?
lion dollars. The committee next expose
the dealings of the State officials with the
South Carolina Bank and Trust Company of
Columbia, and say that this institution must
have had on deposit nearly two and a half
millions of State funds, upon which no inter?
est is known to irave been allowed, although
the law requires the public fund3 to be
placed where the highest rate of interest can
be obtained. The committee, morecver, ex?
press the belief that claims against the State
were paid by the bank, out of the State fouls,
after a large discount had been deducted
from the face of the claims. We believe
that the State officials are the controlling
stockholders in the -jank. But a worse
system of plundering has been onrried on
under the plea of enrolling and organizing
the militia. For the organization of the
militia, now entirely without organization,
and for the purchase ni arms, the State hu3
paid $171,009. The committee declare that
the militia fat ds were used "te armand
"equip a force of personal friends and advo?
cates and pay them;'' and they add that
"the election of 1870 was carried in part''
by these means, the largest amounts being
used "to secure the re-election oj Robert E.
"Scott, but not for the success of the Repub?
lican party." And there is what the com?
mittee aptly call "? 7tiore glaring robbery
"of the Treasury." The State obtained from
the Federal Government, as a gift, tei
sand Springfield muskets. For the
tiOD of these thoroughly serviceable
and for the ammunition for them, th
of South Carolina has paid two hi
and Uco thousand sic hundred and fi
dollars. For which fraud Governor ?
shown by the committee to be respo
Altogether, the militia, the State cor
lary, and the expenses of the Adjutant
ral's Department amount to $421,159,
"is equal to a special tax of two and
"mills upon the taxable property
"State, or a per capita of $2 75 up
"whole voting population."
PassiDg to that "gigantic folly," th?
Commission, the committee show tl
total sum expended for that accoi
$746,724, while ail the fund3 at the di
of the Commission, by law, were $700,
new State bonds. If these bonds wer
at sixty cents the Land Commission
unlawfully expended S326.723. The
mittee believe that when the whole tr
known they will be borne out in thei
elusions that "? more outrageous
"enormoHs swindle could not have
"perpetrated." They show that the
Land Commission was bribed to resig
money, about S50.000, coming out <
Land Commission fund3.* They do n
lieve that the State has valid titles.ti

The committee, in view of the atrocity o

leading officers of the government of tht
State, unhesitatingly say that the Republican
party, which elevated them to power, must
show its condemnation of such treachery and
knavery by an immediate and united effort

all cry out for justice. Let no moment be lost

must recognize the responsibility now resting
upon its shoulders, and deal with bad men.
though they may be their acknowledged
leaders, as exact Justice demands, or witness
the sceptre of their powt-r piss from their
hands amid the execrations of an outraged
and indignant people.
Here we leave the committee for the pres?
ent, with the single remark that their report
shows the justice of the movement for the
impeachment of Scott and his copartners,
and more than justifies all the strictures of
the opposition press. At the worst, prior to
the late revelations the opposit:ou press had
maintained that the Scott party had increased
the debt, in three years, from ?0,000,000 to
$13,000,000. Messrs. Wbittemore, Hurley
and the rest confess that the frauds are not
all known, although they put the debt at
$28,000,000-aa amount which the people
cannot, if they would, pretend to pay.

October, 1670, and November. 1S71, the carpet?

by over $9,000,000, and have nothing to show
lor ll The treasury is empty, the credit of the
State completely gone, and the January inter?
est will probably not be paid. Not only have
enormous amounts of bonds been i-s jed. no?
body knows for what, but they have been
issued without authority of law. The report
ol the committee arraigning Governor Scott
and ihe worthy Niles G. Parker, the State
Treasurer, for fraudulent over-issues, has been
adopted ia the House, and it was immediately
followed by resolutions that both of them be
impeached for high crimes an J misdemeanors.
The resolutions were laid over under the rules.
The Impeachment ought, however, to be ac?
companied and followed by a crmmon domes?
tic prosecution for felony. Deposition from
office by a "high" court" for "high climes" is
all very well, but convlotlon by an ordinary
ctiminal court of low crimes, and committal
to an ordinary penitentiary, is what all our
Ring thieves and peculators most need.
