BO located with reference to fuel, Ac, that they

duce their fire rates.
-The name of Henry W. Longfellow, the
poet, Is given by the Massachusetts papers as
delegate at large to the Liberal Republican
Convention. We are glad to welcome one so
honored and famous Into the ranks of that
party, and to see that a poet can "act in the
living Present," and bury many of the ani?
mosities of the "dead Past." Mr. Longfellow
ls beyond all cavil the greatest of American
poets. He would oe the foremost of living
ones did not Tennyson dispute the palm, and
the lovers of poetry cwn a divided allegiance.
That Mr. Longfellow, a student, modest, re?
tiring, and past the age when the blood ls
- stirred by partisanship, Bhould allow bis name
for the first time to be used In political affairs,
i shows bow argent he must consider the pres
en t need of reform, and how heartily be must
dislike tbe corruption, bribery and general
demoralization now existing.
-The second trial of Laura D. Fair for the
murder of A. P. Crittenden ls now about to
commence at San Francisco. The circum?
stance reawakens an Interest in the history of
thia remarkable case. The murder occurred
nearly two years ago, and the flrst trial, which
was held In the spring of 1871, resulted in a ver?
dict ot guilty o? murder In the flrst degree. Mrs.
Fair was accordingly sentenced to death, and
the execution was to have taken place In July,
1871.' Bat the efforts of her Indefatigable
counsel availed to effect a review of the trial
before the Supreme Court, and a repetition of
legal proceeding was ordered, on the ground
that tbe court below h id erred in not permit?
ting the prisoner's conuBel to make the clos?
ing argument. Afiar numerous delays pecu?
liar to the law, the nsw trial now bids fair to
oe carried to a conclusion. What lurther de?
fence the counsel for Mrs. Fair propose to ad?
duce cannot easily be conjectured, unless the
prisoner's une ol argument, namely, that she
and not Mrs. Crittenden bad a moral right to
the deceased, ls amplified. Two manifestoes
have recently been published by the erratic
criminal, who ls also said io have beguiled
the tedium of her protractedjlmprlsonment by
making some two hundred ana flay thousand
donara in mining speculations. Thc result
will be awaited with great Interest by the
married and marriageable public
. -Prom present appearances, his serene
majesty, the Emperor ot Abyssinia, would
seem to be approaching the end of his reign
The impending conflict between that monarch
and the Khedive of Egypt can have but one
probable resnlt, and the weaker and more
~t?oarons nation must, as usual, eo to the
wall. The military prospecting tour now be?
ing undertaken by the Khedive's orders has
naturally irritated the emperor's temper, and
the refusal of the commander ot the Invaders
to depart Whence he came, leaves the Abys?
sinian monarch but one resource, namely,
war. This ls evidently'Just]what the viceroy
expect?cf and desired. It Is now some years
ago that Slr Samuel Baker explored the tracts
ymg to the southward o? Egypt, and returned
bringing glowing reports of the cotton-pro?
ducing power of that region. Sir Samuel
eventually entered the service of the Khedive,
whose imagination portrayed millions of bales
of cotton and much enlargement of the vice
royal treasure as the result ol an ..annexa?
tion" of Abyssinia. T':e warlike expedition of
commander Munzinger Bey ls doubtless due to 1
the stimulating statements of the ex-Eogileh
explorer, and In common course of time the
whole valley of the Nile will probably become
tributary to Egypt. The Emperor of Abyssinia
has no force to compete with the well-trained
and well-officered soldiers of the Khedive,
and Its five millions of inhabitants have sadly
degenerated since the halcyon days of the
Queen of Sheba.
The State Election.
On the 16th of October, the voters in
South Carolina will elect State and county
officers, seventeen Senators and a foll House
ot Representatives. There are two Repub?
lican tickets in the field; the Regular ticket
and the Bolting ticket. No Conservative
or Democratic State ticket is proposed to
be nominated. The Conservative strength
will show itself in the election of members
of the Legislature and county officers.
Conservatives and Democrats will run, where
there is a reasonable chance of succeeding;
where such a contest is hopeless, efforts are
making to come to terms with the Radicals,
on the basis of giving the Conservative vote
to the faction which puts the best men on
the legislative and local tickets.
At the same election, two amendments to
the Constitution ot the State will be sub?
mitted to the people. The first of these is
as follows :
..Whereas, the Constitution of South Caro- ?
Una, In Article II, Section ll, requires a gen?
eral election to be held on the third Wednes?
day in October, In every second year after
eighteen hundred and seventy; and, whereas,
once in every four years an election ls required
for Presidential Electors, which takes place
tbe first Tuesday after the first Monday In
November; and, whereas, the people o! this
State are, by these two elections following BO
closely upon each other, greatly annoyed and
Inconvenienced, and the Industrial Interests
of the State aa greatly disturbed and Imperilled ;
' lBe it resolved by the Senate and House
Representatives of the State of South Caro?
lina, now met and Bitting la General Assem?
bly, and by the aithorlty ef the same: That
the following amendment to the Constitution
of the State be submitted to the qualified
electors ot the State, at the next general elec?
tion; and, If a majority of tho electors quali?
fied to vote for members of the General As?
sembly, voting thereon, shall vote In lavor of |
such amendment, and two-thirds of each
branch of the next General Assembly shall,
alter such election, and before another, ratify
the same amendment by yeas and naya, lt
shall be part of the Constitution, to wit:
Strike out all of that portion of Section ll, of
Article II, following the words -eighteen bun
.dred and seventy,' occurring in the fourth
and fifth lines, and insert the followlBg: 'Aod
.forever thereafter, ou the first Tuesday fol?
lowing the first Monday la November, la
'every secoad year, ia such manner and at
'such places as the Legislature may provide.
'That the question of adopting this amend?
ment shall be submitted to the electors na
-cuoooiu'iu,vi-vz- ono- nrtxrcuuUlBUl,
shall deposit a ballot with the following words
written or printed thereon: 'Constitutional
'Amendment- Yes ' Those opposed to said
amendment shall cast a ballot with the follow?
ing words written or printed thereon: 'Con
"Approved March 9. 1872."
This amendment will be injurious to the
minority, inasmuch as the State canvass
and Presidential canvass, every four years,
will be carried on together, and decided, in
effect, upon the same issues. On the oil
years, however, there will be an opportunity
of determining the result by purely State |
questions. The holding ot both elections
.on the same day will certainly reduce very
largely the cost of the elections, and will
tend to shorten the canvass. There will be
lees temptation for the laborers to leave
their employment. Political meetings will
be fewer. Assuming that only two days of
time are (laved, the colored voters, or their
employers, will be nearly two hundred thous,
and dollars better off. When a day ls given
to barbecues and meetings, the whole of the
work which would have been done on that
day is lost to the State. This is, of coarse,
in addition lo the pay of commissioners and
managers or elections, and the rest.
The second amendment proposed reads as
"? lt resolved by the Senate and House of I
Representatlvea of the State of South Caro?
lina, (two-thirds of both houses concurring,)
that the lollowiug Article be submitted to the
qualified electors ot the State, at the next
general election for Representatives, as an
j amendment to the Constitution of the Slate,
which, If a majority of the electors qualified
to vote lor members of the General Assembly,
voting thereon, shall vote In favor ot such
amendment, and two-thirds ol each branch of
the next General Assembly shall, after auch
au election, and before another, ratify the
same, shall become part of the Constitution,
"ARTICLE XVI.-To the end that the public
debt of South Carollaa may not hereafter be
Increased without the due consideration and
.lree consent of the people of the State, the
General Assembly is hereby forbtddeu to
create any further debt or obligation, either by
the loan of the credit of the State, by guar?
antee, endorsement or otherwise, except for
the ordinary and current business ot the State,
without first submitting the question as to the
creation of any such new debt, guarantee, en?
dorsement or loan of its credit, to the people
of this State, at a general State election; and,
unless two-thirds of the qualified voters of |
this State, voting on the question, shall be In
favor of a further debt, guarantee, endorse?
ment or loan o? its credit, none such shall be
"That the question of adopting this amend?
ment shall be submitted to the electors as fol- j
lows: Those In favor of the amendment shall
deposit a ballot with the following words writ?
ten or printed thereon : ' Constitutional
'Amendment, Article XVI-Yes.' Those op?
posed to the amendment aball cast a ballot
with the following words written or printed
thereon : 'Constitutional Amendment, Artl
"Approved March 13, 1872."
This is very much like bolting the atable
door when tho steed is stolen, but the
amendment is right in principle, and, if it
had been adopted two years ago, many mil?
lion dollars wonld have been saved to the
taxpayers or the public.
No opposition is made to the proposed
amendments, and it is expected that they
will be unanimously adopted. Upon being
ratified by a two-thirds vote of the next
General Assembly, the amendments become
a part ot the Constitution of the State.
Grant and the Bolters.
Tbe Richmond Dispatch bas tbe following
telegram from its Washingtonjcorrespondent:
"WASHINGTON, September ll.
"Senator Sawyer Interviewed the President
to-day with re le re nee to political matters In
South Carolina; but, if his Intention is to In?
iti?e the Administration to support the Bolt?
ers, his suggestions will not have much weight,
aa It ls far more likely that the President's
lavor will go to the Regular Radicals and
Ignore the Bolters."
Senator Sawyer has probably tried to con?
vince the President that the Bolters are the
saints of tho Republican party, and we
earnest and honest workers for true reform.
This may be his opinion, and he is welcome
to it. Bat the white citizens of the State
have no faith in any movement which is led
and controlled by D. T. Corbin, C. C. Bowen,
W. J. Whipper and James L. Orr. They
look upon it as an attempt to save the heads
o? the Federal officials which will swiftly
fall if the Regular ticket is elected. And
they remember that, in the Bolting Conven?
tion, the declaration waa made, again a?d
agaiD, tbat Democratic votes would not be
conciliated, that every candidate everywhere
should be a tried Radical, and that if the
Democrats, with these inducements before
them, dared to run a ticket, the Bolters
would rush into the arms of the Regulars,
and give the State the worBt government
this people bas known. The whites, wo re?
pent, will have nothiDg to do with Bolters
or Regulars, except where and when it is
evidently their interest to do so. President
Grant will not strengthen himself in this
Slate by any countenance he may giv3 to
either wing of the party.
Charleston's Champion Orator,
Among the distinguished gentlemen who
were announced to address the great Lib?
eral mass meeting which was held in Union
Square, New York, on Thursday night,, we
notice the name of the Hon. M. P. O'Con?
nor, of South Carolina, Wo are sure lhat
he bad a warm reception at tbe bands of
the Democracy of the commercial me?
That Matter of Business.
The Columbia Phomx asserts that tbe
recent decree of Judge Willard bas "30th
"ing to do with the question of advertising
' in the newspapers," and that the public
advertising was "not embraced io the com
"plaint of the plaintiff, nor is it covered by
"the decree of Judge Willard." This is
comforting to the newspaper fraternity ; es?
pecially as there is no money in the Treasury.
A Man of Iiettera.
Mr. Charles O'Conor has written an "glabe
"rate letter" flatly declining the nomination
of the Louisville Cheat. Of course, the let?
ter was elaborate. It is very hard for most
men to say No ! in one word, easy as that
feat wonld seem. At all events, Mr. O'Conor
can't do it. For this addition to tbe stock
of universal knowledge, we mnst thank the
Blanton Dnncan Convention. Unfortunate?
ly for Mr. O'Conor, however, what he has
gained in notoriety he has lost in public
The Liberals and Democrats, fighting the
Devil with fire, have nominated Mr. Charles
Sumner os their candidate for Governor of
Massachusetts. This is a sensible way of
burying the hatchet. Tbe Massachusetts
Senator has not wanted in boldness in at?
tacking Grant and supporting Greeley, and
hie nomination will give the Administration
a heavier weight to carry. In 1863, the
State gave Grant 77,069 majority. This can
be sliced down considerably.
The Times Out of Joint. .
Our correspondent "Quelquefois" writes to
say that the Conservative citizens ol Oxange
burg are compelled "to repel and denounce
"as an Insult" ihe course of the Times In de?
claring for Moses & Co.
Flurry In South Carolina Bonds.
By the latest telegrams (rom New York we
see that the April and October Issues of new
South Carolina bonds have suddenly risen
from twenty, the quotation of a few days ago,
to twenty-eight. The January and July Issues
stick at about twenty-five. Tbe reason ol all
this Is given In the New York Herald's stock
market report tor Tuesday, which says:
"There was a pretty active Inquiry lor April
"and October Issues of the new South Caro?
linas, with an advance to 2G4 bid. Usually
"these issues have been about H per cent,
"lower than the July bonds owing to their
"coupons coming three months behind the
"latter, but some one professes to have dis?
covered that there ls a provision In tbs Stale
"laws making lt compulsory In ihe treasury
"to pay the Interest on the April and October
"class of bonds out of a special tax, and. hence
"the flurry which caused them to run ahead
"ol the January and July's this afternoon."
Giving the State to Greeley-A Warning
[From the Chester Reporter.]
Judge Mackey left for Washington on last
Monday afternoon. He is the bearer of an
address or letter, from the State Executive
Commitiee of the Regular Republican parly
to President Grant, representing In very forci?
ble language the conduct of Majors Merrill
and Brown, and District Attorney Corbin, In
taking part in local elections, and asking the
President to Issue an order at once command?
ing that this interference on the part ol the
military and civil officers of thegeoeral gov-1
ernment shall cease. In the event ol: Presi?
dent Grant's refusal lo comply with this rea?
sonable and proper request., lt is not the pur?
pose ot the Regulars, as we understand lt, to
throw their strength in favor of Greeley; but
simply to refuse to vote for any electoral
ticket at all, and thereby give the Stale to
Greeley by default.
The board of education of San Francisco has
under consideration the subject of Introduc?
ing study of phonography in the public
schools, and the papers of that city are favora?
ble to the project. Good phonographers are
much wanted in the country, but it is an art
that cannot be acquired and practically ap?
plied to any useful extent by a dunce. As
well might lt be expected that every
ine who learns to make the letters of
the English alphabet should be s. fine
composer in the language, as that every one
ivho mechanically executes characters of
phonography should thereby be a competent
reporter. Only those who have very conside?
rable capacity as writers themselves, and
nucb Intelligence and Judgment besides, can
make successful use of phonography, espe
jlally In the general purposes ot the newspaper
iress. It ls advisable that those who have
10t this degree ol talent should not waste
heir time over phonography.
