The Legislature now in session can,
iura iis attention io no subject more im?
portant than that of devising a wise
common school system. We do not p re?
sume that, any suggestion of ours will
hive much weight with a body of wbich it
is netiti oar power often to speak with
commendation. . Bat we may well sug?
gest that if for no other reason than a
??1^1^ the colored
populat??n, the Lcgialatoro might well
\ consider educational methods, and not
give it? whole attention to wild agrarian
- trtrntrjUS and political ina tra man te. It
trosld b? well for those modern Solong
and Draooa to remember that to improve
the brains and tba morals of the colored
people is about as important as to give
them la?es; ko. With regard now to the
system that ahonld be pnt in operation,
we may, in a general way. suggest that
it ought tobo adapted to the peculiarities
of cpr State and onr population. No
system imported from New England will
answer. What would work well in New
England might prove utterly unsuited to
South Carolina. Furthermore, it is evi?
dent that separate schools for whites and
blacks nhonld be provided. A wise
legislator deals with things as they aro,
not as they ought to be,'according to his
opinion. The ekiaUog .feelings between
the whites and colored people in this
State make it impossible for them to be
aohooled together. Now tho point with
the Legislature j is not whether these
feelings are right; or wrong, philosophical
or the reverse, but it ie^ that tho feelings
exist, are etrong^and control the conduct
of the parties. Another delicate matter
is the matter of text books. Any arbi?
trary rale on thjs point will militate
greatly against the scheme that maybe
aU?i?pted. Perhaps the: fairest courso
would be to leaVeJ; the selection of text
books to the judgment of the teachers.
We see no reaaottTwhy a particular set of
books should be insisted upon. We be?
lieve it-is Mr. Jillson who has tho sub?
ject in charge. In the matter at least of
education, it ia to be hoped that Mr.
Jillson and the Legislature will rise
above party views and considerations,
?nd give a wiso system of common
' schools io the State. This is a work out
of whioh reputation can be made. This
isa work that may be the instrument of
much good. Let ns hope that those in
charge of the subject may rise to the
lovel of their high opportunity. When
.the great architect, Sir Christopher
Wren', after finishing the great cathedral,
died, he was buried within tho walls
whioh his own genius had planned aud
reared, and his tomb was marked by a
simple slab, bearing this inscription:
"8i monumcntum quoris, circumspic?"
"if you $eek his monument, look around"
Let any man now giro to South Carolina
a system of common school education
adapted alike to whites and blacks, and
respecting tastes and sentiments that oan
never be eradicated, and ho will achieve
for himself enduring honor, and of him,
too, hereafter it may be said : A grateful
people raise no shaft of marble or gra?
nite to his memory, but "if you seek his
monument, look around." Let South
Carolina republicanism rise, if it can, to
the height of a conception like this, and
even the most determined opponent?
must concede to it the meed of praise;
must make the acknowledgment thal
some good may coma out of Nazareth :
must admit that whereas they believe
radicalism foolish, it has demonstrated
that it can be wise.
Partisanship of Gov, Scott Illustrated*
Oar readers will ciao where notice the
communication of Mr. Thomas W.
Holloway. Mr. Holloway is a well
known oitizen of Newberry. In making
the request of GOT. Scott that he did,
Mr. H. discharged a duty to tho public
aa well as to himself. And in now bring
ing the matter before tho public, he hai
farther done well. Let the short-corn
inga of the officials of the State be ex
posed. In declining to pay attontion t<
this matter, Gov. Scott has done wha
may hare been expected, when it is re
membered that Mr. H. does not belong
to that party which the present Exccutivi
so assiduously courts. Sumter is threat
ened with martial law, whon Mr. Davit
Robertson's atoro is bornt; but gin housi

suggestion that this is not so bad afte

deserve. This is a pretty condition o

POMAIUA, 8. G., November 16, 1860.
Tb his Excellency Gov. R. K. Scott.
Sm: During my absence from home
last week, in attendance at the Fair, Co?
lumbia, my gin house was burnt, de?
stroying botween five and six bales cot?
ton, about 400 bushels cotton seed, fod?
der, hay, gio, thresher, belting, etc, all
amounting io value to about $2,000. Tbe
colored people employed upon the place,
aud who had an interest io the cotton,
assert that the Ore was not the result of
carelessness, bot the oct of an incen?
diary. IQ this neighborhood, a short
time since, Rev. Mr. Boinest lost bis
buildings; two other attempts to Bro two
gio houses eear hero failed, by prompt
?lotion of the owners. It is not unusual
to seo in our papers, almost daily, ac?
counts of the destruction of buildings,
containing tho yeats's bard earnings, and
why snob occurrences aro so frequent,
naturally attracts serious attention, and
our pcoplo uro apprehensive, if such a
state of things continue, of being
brought to want. Wo feel our inability
to stop those villainous nets of the incen?
diary, aud in tho case of myself referred
to, I writo to yon to beg you to offer a
sui table reward for the apprehension of
the person or persons who destroyed my
property, on Tuesday, 9th instant. As
already stated, tbe colored people think
there caa be uo doubt as to tbo origin of
the fire. Ta an experience of thirty
Sears, I have never known ns many gin
ouses destroyed r>8 have been even in
this vicinity withiaVthu lost two months;
and why it is so, naturally forces thu
people to draw inferences, whether cor?
rectly or not.
If those in authority direct their ener?
gies to the promotion of good will among
the people, instead of engendering bato
and discord for selfish purposes, there
would bo peuce, harmony and prospority
throughout the country. But I regret to
say, that instoad of tho proper course
beiug pursued, an influence is being ex?
erted from some quarter, to destroy thu
property of the couutry aud impoverish
Will you not interpose in behalf of our
citizens, and put. no end to the dangers
that now surround us? Very respect?
fully, THOS. W. HOLLOWAY.

THE CONTESTED ELECTIONS IN THE
THIRD AND FOURTH CONGRESSIONAL DIS?
TRICTS.-"Corsair," the correspondeut of
tho Charleston News, says:
Upon the meeting of Congress, which
commences on tho first Monday in De?
cember, the case of A. 8. Wallace vs.
W. D. Simpson-contested election
will como up.
This case, it will be rememborod, was
presented along with that of S. D. H?ge
vs. J. P. Reed, which was forced through,
aud H?ge seated, just at the end of the
last session of Congress; and this case of
Wallace vs. Simpson would have been
forocd through io the same style but for
want of time. Three hours more might
bavc disposed of it as the other bad been.
Tbe reports of both cates-both majori?
ty and minority-wero exactly alike,
verbatim. The following is the majority
report in tho ouse of H?ge vs. Reed:
Resolved, That, upon the papers refer?
red to, the Committee of Elections, in
the coo tested osse of 8. JJ. H?ge vs. J.
P. Reed, from tho Third Congressional
District of South Carolina, 8. L. H?ge
is prima facie entitled to a seat in the
House, as the representative of said
District, subject to the future action o?
the House as to the merits of the case.
Upon tho same case, the minority re?
port-made by Messrs. Burr aud Rao
dull-in as follows:
Resolved, That J. P. Reed is not enti?
tled, under resolution of March, 1869, to
a seat from the Third District of South
Carolina, by reason of ineligibility, sod
that S. L. H?ge is not entitled to such
seat, because he was not by tbe greatest j
uumber of votes duly elected by tho
pcoplo of that District.
The two cases, theo, stand npon the j
same footing, and the arguments both

they are struggling to maintain the great
American prinoiple that "all govern?
ments deserve their just powers from the

the geographical relation of the United

der it important that it ahould no longer
be held by a power hostile to our free in?
stitutions ; and wberoaa, the Govern?
ment of the United States is, by its own
declarations and by the common consent
nf mankind, the champion of human
