Hon. B. P. Randolph, Senator froi
Orangeburg County, reported tl
following preamble and resolutions
Whereas, information has roache
this House of tho death of M
Jame? Martin, a Representative fro
Abbevillo County, who was delih
rately murdered ou the public i oa
while traveling to his home fro
Abbevillo Court House, on tho otb
October; and whereas there can I
no doubt that Mr. M?rtir, was mu
dcred solely because of his politic
associations; therefore, be it
Resol md, That in thc death of M
James Martin, member from Abl
villo County, this House loses o
who, though quiet and utiobtrusn
was always faithful and diligent
tho performance of his duties, a
that wo sincerely mourn his loss.
Resolved, That, regretting as we i
tho loss of a member so gentle, i
obtrusive and intelligent as was X
Martin, wo cannot but regret far nu
tho existence in any part of ourSti
of a spirit whicn would seek to BOI
party purposes by violence and m
der; and that the existence of sud
spirit is still more to be deplored a
deprecated, and assumed a more p
tentons appearance when it select
as its viotim one who, under no c
enmstances, could have given pro
cation tli:?t would justify or even p
liate the conduct of those who m
Resolved, That while we wonld i
willingly believe that the intelligei
and respectability of this State,

j to the outrages of whioh the murder
of Mr. Martin, and the equally atro
j cious and unjustifiable murder of the
Hon. B. F. Randolph, Senator from
Orangoburg, are exam pies, wocaunot
blind ourselves to the fact that, as
yet, the citizens in whose supposed
interest these outrages have been
perpetrated, have done little or no?
thing towards bringing to justice
those who committed them, but that,
on the contrary, the attempts made
by the Executive of tho State to ar
l rest tho guilty parties, have been de?
nounced in the communities where
the crimes were committed, as an ar
i bitrary exercise of power not justified
[hy the circumstances; and that, in
some instances, the officers of the
law have been threatened and treated
Resolved, That we would fain be?
lieve, now that the excitement of a
bitter political contest is over, that
tho people of our State will settle
imo a quiet obedience to law and
respect for tho rights of all; and that
however much wo may regret what
has transpired as members of the
General Assembly of South Carolina,
we can cherish no feelings of bitter?
ness or revenge, but that wo will in
tho futuro as in the past, address
ourselves to the task of making such
laws and adopting suoh measures as
will secure equal and exact justice to
all classes, and prosperity to thc
Resolved, That these resolutions bc
entered upon tho journal of thc

Let not Prejudice Usurp Your Henson.
It is a fact that, in the minds of many

should this prevent you resorting to an
