Thursday Morning, January 27,1870.J
THE CHARLESTON NEWS AND
We observe that the Charleston News
lays down what it calls "The Platform
of tho South Carolina Democracy." We
desire first to say that we make no issue
with the News npon the subject matter
of its declaration. Bat it is doe, at least
to this journal, to say that we do not
recognize the right either of the News,
or of any other journal, to lay down the
platform of the South Carolina Demo?
cracy. We presume that at the right
time, and in its own way, the Sooth
Carolina Democracy will lay down a
platform for themselves. In the mean?
time the News can do no more than give
expression to its own platform; and we
hnve tho right to say, with due courtesy,
that the News has exercised an authority
which no journal in the State basa right
to assume. We, "who havo bourne tho
heat and barden of tho day," do uot
.issnme this authority, and we do not in?
tend to concede it to other journals.
THE REMARKS OE MR. MOSES.
We are disposed to take the ground
that the political observations of a mau
fike Mr. Speaker Moses are properly
below the plane of notico i.t our hands.
A renegade, such as his political career
marks bim, it is not likely that his views
will have any effect with those compe?
tent to pass upon his political demerits.
We Bhall, however, raise him, for this
occasion, to the dignity of a passing
criticism. These remarks have been
suggested by certain language which he
lugs in, on the occasion of his eulogy
upon the late Judge Boozer. We do not
object to Mr. Speaker Moses paying his
tribute to the memory of a political
associate. With this, we have nothing
to do; and it is not our taste to suggest
aught in connection with tho lifo nud
services of the deceased. But wc do not
intend that Mr. Speaker Moses shall,
without rebuke, maligu the motives and
conduct of those whose political associate
he was in timos past-men his peers
then, and immeasurably his superiors
now, since his fall from tho battlements
of Sumter and the heights of the Confe?
derate cause to his present level. With
unblushing effrontery, this mau under?
takes to pass judgment upon men whose
shoe-latchets he is unworthy lo unloose.
Those men were '.faithless." The hand
raised in behalf of the Confederacy was
"unhallowed." And thus, in bad taste,
Mr. Speaker Moses could not eulogize
the dead of one opiuion without libeling
the living and tho dead of another
opinion. Mr. Moses speaks of "that
solemn day when thc deeds of the flesh
shall be judged of iu the spirit." It ill
becomes him to invoko such a tribunal
at least, until he has brought forth
"fruits meet for repentance." But wo
shall let him pass. Wo leave him to
that judgment which the public will give
him. Enough for ns to say that in seek?
ing to live in marble, ho will succeed
only in living in "brass."

THU SOUTH CAROLINA CONTESTED
ELECTION CASE.-A special despatch to
the Charleston News, dated Washington,
January 25, says:
Tho House spent the entire day iu I
debating the report of the Committee ou !
Eleotious in the enntosted eleotion ease
of Wallaco (radical) against Simpson,
(Democrat,) from the Fourth Congres?
sional District of South Carolina. At
ono time, it was decided, by a vote of
103 to 78, that Simpson had a prima j
facie title to his seat; but, in consequence
of tho severe fighting and desperate !
efforts of the leading radicals, this vote
was reconsidered, and the prima facie. \
report of the Committee on Elections !
luid on the table. This leaves the case j
open to contest on its merits; but, pend?
ing tho final decision of the House, de?
prives Simpson of his seat. The scene
tu tho House, during the debate, and
when tho final vote was taken, was among
the most exciting ever witnessed during
Hie consideration of a contested election, i
FROM CHESTER.-A friend writes as j
follows concerning matters and things
in that town:
"Allow me to correct the report given j

CAPACITY OF MAN FOR SELF
In a notice of William D. Northeud's
speeches and essays apon political sub?
jects, from 1860 - to the Southern
Review (published at Baltimore) for Ja?
nuary, 1870, sayj:
"Our eyes are open; wo see the truth.
Our leaders still believe, we are sorry to
say, that 'the people are capable of self
government'-that is to say, the people
of the South. The Yankees, on the
other hand, (aud we mean no disrespect
by tho use of that epithet,) believe that
'the people are capablo of self-govern
I mont'-that is to say, the Yankees and
the negroes, bnt not the whites of tho
South. Our disbelief is far moro catho?
lic, comprehensive and profound. It is
not tho species Yankee, nor tho species
negro, nor the species cavalier, which
has brought the exporimeot of self
government to grief; il is the genus man.
All aro ul ike, if nut equally, incapable of
self-govornmeut. Tho Yankee, tho negro,
the cavalier, may lay the fluttering unc?
tion to his soul, that his race is capablo
of 6elf-goverumout; but it is all a tielu
siou. Even our woll-beloved pooplo of
the South, wo fearlessly assert, aro not
so much better than all the rest of tho
world, as to bo capable of the enjoyment
of such a boon; for, as Bousseau well
says, or, rather, as history teaches, De?
mocracy, or thc government of the peo?
ple by themselves, is a good form for 'a
nation of gods,' but 'is too perfect for
man.' Tho people of tho South aro
only men, not gods, and heneo, if a
scberuo of pure self-government is not
too perfect for them, they are too per?
fect for it."
Whereupon, that ably-edited and high
toned journal, tho Now Orleans Times,
"We enter our protest, as Southern
journalists, against this silly and mis?
chievous diatribe on self-govern mont,
vented by a quarterly review which
claims to represent the opinion of the
Southern people, and to speak authorita?
tively for thom iu their prosont calami?
tous circumstances. * *
"It is not so much nu assault upon the
particular form of government under
which the Amcricau people have always
lived, and to which they are still attach?
ed, (because it is founded on tho inalien?
able rights of mau,) as upon human
nature itself, upon the rational nature
with which God has endowed every
humau being, investing him with a kind
of sovereignty-at least, with a control
over his own acts, if he is a moral agent,
a citizen, or even a subjeot. It is a libel
upon the wisdom and benevolence of
him who has endowed mau with such a
nature, aud with a consciousness of his
independence, in order to qualify him
for noble notions, lit him for olovated
pursuits, aud inspire him with courage
to undertake them. It is equally an out?
rage upon tho character of those students
of mankind and of its capacities, of
those philosophers and sages, who, with
tho cousent of tho people, huvo formed
and established governments, founded
on this very principio-tho right and ca?
pacity of man for s^lf-govcrnment.
"Ilad the writer maintained that men,
endowed with thc power of self-control,
do not always govorn themselves as they
should-that they frequently forgot the
high vocation to which they are called as
men and citizens of a freo country-that
they are often heedless of the powerful
voice of reason and the monitions of
conscience in indicating the career that
is worthy of them, and arc driven hither
aud thither by caprices, prejudices,
opinions and passions, which involve
them in fatal mistakes, and surround
them with wretched circumstances; had
he maintained that tho Government
under which we live, and which, admin?
istered on tho principles on which it was
originally founded, is a noble Govern?
ment, has beeu, since the termination of
tho lute unhappy civil war, signally mis?
managed by a weak and unprincipled
party, who havo failed to represent thc
will of the people in governing them?
selves, ho would havo committed, pro?
bably, no great blunder; but when ho
asserts, from the tripod, that man, gifted
with reason and common sense, is actu?
ally iucapublo of solf-govornment and
only lit to be tho subservient tool, in?
strument or slave of tyrants, who, in
any conjuncture of circumstances, have
seized on tho reins of Government, ho
advances a mean and miserable dictum
which has been exploded for centuries,
und was never worthy of being main?
tained for a moment."
We agree entirely with the Times. We
have no sympathy with that affection
which leuda to such conclusions as those
reached by tho Southern Review. As
there ure men who aro fond of affecting
to believe neither in tho honor of mau
nor in the virtue of woman, and thus
utter a libel at once upon themselves
aud those near to them, so there are to
be found political Mau freds, who, pre?
tending to look at things from thc icy
heights to which self-conceit or misan?
thropy conduct them, nie pleased to give
expression to just such sophisms as those
emanating from tho Souillera Revira:
As for ourselves wo have faith in God
and humanity. Wo have faith in thc
people. They aro capable of helf-go
v ern mont when intelligent and virtuous,
and they are not responsible for much
attributed to them. Often it is that tho
sius and crimes of corrupt rulers and
demagogucical are visited upon them.
Tho great mass of thc people arc often
tho dupes of their unworthy loaders, but
not often is tho popular instinct wrong,
and there is philosophy and truth in the
suggostion that has been put forth, that
tho sober sonso of the people, in an
enlightened country, is seldom wrong.

SUPREME COURT, January 36.-Long
before the hour of meotiug, tho court
room wail fitted with ladies, members of
the Legislature and the Bar. At 10
o'clock, the Court wa? opened-Ohiel
Justice Moses and Associate Justice
Willard being present. Attorney-G on o
ral Chamberlain arose and announced to
the Court the death i of Judge Boozer,
and submitted the following resolutions,
with the accompanying remarks:
Resolved, That in the death of the Hon.
Lemuel Boozer, Judge of the Court of
Common Pleas and General Sessions for
tho Fifth Judicial Circuit of th's State,
wo mourn the loss of a pure and useful
publio servant, an able aud impartial
Judge and nn honest and estimable man.
Resolved, That thc foregoing expres?
sion of our respect aud esteem bo pre?
sented to tho Supremo Court, with the
request that it be spread upon the records
of the Court.
MAY IT PLEASE YOUR HONORS: I am
charged by my brethren of the liar with
the molancholy duty of announcing to
this Court the death of Hon. Lemuel
Boozer, lato Judge of the Court of Com?
mon Pleas and General Sessions for the
Fifth Judicial Circuit of this Stnto. A
life devoted from earliest manhood to
that profession of which you aro tho
honored ministers-a lifo of long and cm
iucnt public eorvices-a life orowued with
tho honors of his fellow-citizens and
adorned with high personal aud private
virtues, has suddenly closed. "In tho
midst of life wo aro in death!" Behind
us-behind each one of us-stalks tho
unseen but relentless destroyer! Buta
day or two ngo, and ho whoso form is
even now crumbliug ngaiu into its native
dust, was iu our midst, erect, vigorous,
cheerful, with tho promise as assured as
yours or mino, of many remaining days
of usefulness and honor. Sed Diis nee
aliter visum. A higher power than his
or ours had appointed tho bound of his
earthly life, and, on Sunday last, in the
midst of great bodily anguish, but with
a calm and cheerful spirit, ho passed, as
wo humbly trust, tr? a higher, happier
and more peaceful existence. Surely
such a lifo is worthy our coutempltttiou!
I Surely the departure of such a man may
well arrest our busiest hands, while for a
brief momout, ut least, wo mark his vir?
tues and deplore his loss. And surely
here, if anywhere herein the presence
of this Court -it is fitting that bis mem?
ory should bc honored and his praises
In rising to announce tho decease of
our honored friond, aud to offer my brief
tribute to his memory, I am well aware
that I am acting chiefly in virtue of my
official station; and yet there was so
much in our personal relations that
seemed to bridge over tho disparity of
our years-there was so much of kind?
liness and personal confidence in Judge
Boozer's bearing towards me, that I feel
us if no man here could offer a more
heart-felt or well-founded expression of
affection or honor. "He wa? my friend,
faithfnl and just to me." But it is not
?is a personal friend and benefactor, but
os u fearless and upright public servant
-u Judge without fear aud without
guile-a pure and patriotic legislator, a
just and useful citizen, and au honest,
high-minded man, that I desire to pre?
sent him on this occasion.
The outward events of the lifo of Judge
Boozer may be briefly given: Boru in
the year 1808, he entered upon the prac?
tice of his profession, as a lawyer, at tho
ourly age of tweuty-two, and, ono year
later, was elected to represent his Dis
i trict in the lower House of the Legisla?
ture of tho State. From that time,
ul most without interruption, he con tin ned
his services as a legislator, down to the
date of the attempted secession of the
State of South Carolina from tho Fede?
ral Union. At the close of the war, he
again appeared in public life as a mem?
ber of the Constitutional Convention of
1865, and, under tho State Government
which followed, was appointed District
Judge for the District of Lexington. lu
1868, wo find him a member of the Con?
stitutional Convention, assembled under
tho reconstruction Acts of Congress, and,
under the Constitution then framed, he
wus elected Lieutenaut-Governor of the
State. This offico ho held until, in Sep?
tember, 1868, he was elected to the
judicial office, from the active discharge
of whose duties an acute and fatal
disease has so suddenly removed him.
Such, may it please your Honors, in
briefest epitome, was the outward public
life of Lemuel Boozer. A fair and honor?
able record-a pago of human history
uublurrod by dishonor or fear, unstained
by self-seeking or venality-a life, if not
widely conspicuous by startling events,
nor emblazoned to tho world by brilliant
deeds, yet rich to us and to tho Slate in
Ibo examplo of pure and unselfish ser?
vice, and beautiful with the too rare
grace of a simplo and honest manhood.
How few of us who remain, if tho sum?
mons should como to us, ns it carno te
him, suducnly and with all tho terrors ol
agonizing disease, could front Eternity
with a record so fair and complete!
As a lawyer, Judge Boozer hehl n
deservedly high rauk. Here, as in his
whole life, his eminence sprang, not sc
much from profound or brilliant qualifi?e
of mind, us from that rarer and far more
valuable combination of good judgment,
patient industry and perfect integrity.
No client ever foarod that Judge Boozer
would designedly mislead him, or givo a
divided allegiance to a cause which bc
hud ooco espoused. In a profession
I which offers so many opportunities, il
i not inducements, for disingenuous advice
I and equivocal advocacy, what highei
! praise can be accorded to tho lawyoi
tlum this unanimous testimony to lui
professional honor and chivalry? Auc
h ii hs ta H ti al and paramount success as i
j lawyer was tho result and rowardof sud
I a character.
lu his career as a public mau, Judge
Boozer's purity and decision of charao
ter wero pre-eminently conspicuous. Ii
tho long record of bis service in the
pabilo conncilB of the Stat?, what frenzy
of political passion, or what audacity of
partisan attack, bas ever dared to breathe
a suspicion of sordid or dishonest mo?
tives against Judge Booser? In early
and middle life, Abd, indeed, until his
years had quito "fallen into the aero anti
?ellow leaf," throughout the calmer
ayB of the republic, Judge '-Boozer's
publio course seemed to flow in nub
atantial harmony with the great body of
his fellow-citizens. But when, lalo in
life, at an age when many men ure put?
ting off the armor of active life,
tho mutterings of the coming stupoud
OU8 civil convulsion were heard-then it
was that tho character of Judge Boozer
met its severest test and most trying
ordeal. From that time until tho hour
when death opened to him tho gates of
that world where strifes and contentions
cease, Judge Boozer's public course was
in direct and undisguised conflict with
thu sentiment of his State. Thenceforth
he kuew what it was to exercise that
virtue which Cicoro describes as "the
power of living apart from one'? associ?
ates; ol being a stranger beside the
May it please your Honors, I do not
disguise from myself the fact that T am
treading on the thin ashes which but
bnlf conceal the ?lying flames of our
fearful struggle. I would not, on any
occasion, least of all ou such au occasion
ns this, disturb, by so much as a ripple,
tho subsiding waves of our civil commo?
tion, but I cannot help feeling that uo
picturo of Lemuel Boozer would be
historically correct, or be recognizable by
posterity, or valuable to his friends,
which dill not jtnint him ns he iras, or
which failed to portray this most signifi?
cant and eventful passage of his life. .
His love of tho Union, his attachment
to its history und its polity, his faith in
its future, were deep-seated, sincere, in?
eradicable. For its sake he was willing
tt? forego honors; to meet obloquy; to
endure the loss of friends. What g?ne?
rons political foes; wli t manly heart ?ny
where, however bitter may have been the
warfare during his life, is not ready to?
day to lay a garland ou the grave of ono
so honest, so sincere, so outspoken?
O? Judge Boozer's later judicial servi?
ces, others will speak who have scunued
them more narrowly. But here, us in
all his life, his firmucES, his candor, his
conscientious industry, his fidelity to
duty, were constantly displayed. He
had no revenges to glut, no hatreds to
gratify; buta simple, single eyed pur?
pose to do his duty, guided and sustain?
ed him until death claimed bini in the
midst of his highest usefulness.
May it please your Honors, I feel that
there is much, very much, in such a life
and character to enlist our admiration
und lo command our respect. lu the
midst of so much shameless self-seeking,
how fragrant tho example of such
unostentatious service! In tho midst of
such abounding venality, bow conspicu?
ous tho unspotted purity of such a lifel
In au ago of brilliant but shadowy repu?
tations, bow grand tho simple and solid
strength of such a character!
And so, teuderly but proudly, we lay
him down, and as the grave closes over
tho form of our revered friend, we echo
that strain of lofty aud tender lament in
which tho Kornau historian bewails his
patron and his friend:
"67 quis piorum manibns locust, si, ul
snpienlibus placet, non cum corpore exsUn
tjunntur animas ntagnac, placide qiticscas."
Hon. W. F. DoSnussure said:
MAY IT PLEASE TUE COIIVT: I riso to
second tho resolutions offered by the At
toruey-Gcnerul, and to express my cor?
dial coucurronee in his able, just and
eloquent address. As the senior member
of the Bar of the Circuit over which the
deceased Magistrate presided, it is fit
that I should add my voice to this pro?
posed tribute of respect to his memory.
But beyond this, my personal relations
with him wero evor of tho kindest cha?
racter, aud call for this expression of my
sincere respect. It ia more than thirty
years since I first knew him at the Bat
of Lexington, and I had ample opportu?
nity of observing his course, lt was
upright, manly and just. This, with his
unflagging iudustry, in a few years,
placed him at tho head of the Bar of his
District. Tho people had confidence, in
him, and he vindicated that confidence
by devotion to the interests confided to
him; by his sound, practical good sense,
and by his sterling integrity. His influ?
ence with juries was marked, and ho was,
for tho most part, successful in his
causes. His brethren of the Bar found
him a fair practitioner, resorting to no
potty arts, and a formidable opponent.
His manners were courteous; I never
heard him speak ill of any one. It was
contrary to his nature. Advanced to the
beuob, Judge Boozer carno to preside
over this Circuit at a very trying period.
Tho state of the country had caused a
great accumulation of business on the
dockets; a now system bad been inaugu?
rated; he had to deal with now materials,
aud with persons cutirely unpracticed in
tho administration of justice All this
required grcut good sense, patience, for?
bearance and devotion to duty, and ho
was found not unequal to the occasion.
The Uar of Columbia were sensible of
this, and at the close of a heated term,
during the last summer, gavo expression
to their opinion by an address in Court,
by which he was sensibly affected.
Somo months ago, I said to him, that
his employment upon the Circuit from
January to December, gave him no time
for rest or study, and I thought he would
sink under it. He replied, that ho felt it
to bo so, and regretted most especially
that the extent and pressure of tho cri?
minal business of thu country had left
him so little opportunity of innkiug an
impression upon tho civil dockets, but
that ho would do his duty to the best of
his ability. Our meoting to-day, verifies
the untimely and sad result I anticipated.
I hopo the resolutions will be adopted.
Jndge Moses delivered the following
MB. ATTORNEY -GKSKKAL: It is with
heartfelt sympathy that the Court unites
with the bar in its expression of regret
et tho melancholy occasion which has
given rise to your resolutions. Although
we feel, I know, that there is ordained
au end to all which is mortal-that the
young, as well as tho aged, has a career
of life which may be terminated when
least ezpeoted, jet such is tho constitu?
tion of man's nature, designed BO for
good and wholesome purposes, that when
death summons from existence those who,
but u short time before, we hud met in
the enjoyment of strength and of vigor,
we cnn scarcely realize the deprivation,
because so suddenly made.
Perhaps not many present had better
opportunities than I enjoyed of realizing
tho worth and excellence of him whoso
loss we deplore. Serving with him in
the Senate ef tho State for many years,
and for some time a member of the sumo
committee, an intimacy followed whieh
afforded mo the pleasure und advantage
of appreciating the many attributes
which contributed to mako him tho good
lawyer, the honest statesman, und uhove
all, tho virtuous eitizeu. With a mind
moro solid tbau brilliant-a judgment
more sound than quick, ho relied much
on the deductions of his own reason for
his opinions-never formed them with?
out reflection, or abundoued them with?
out eouvietiou of error. Tho elements
whieh he possessed were exactly such as
to constitute him, when tosted by tho
new positiou to which his merits lately
elevated him, tho safo and reliable Judge.
Puru and honest in his intentions, no
fluttery or sophistry could seduce him
from a conviction to which ho bad
reached by study aud reflection, und no
one was more ready to acknowledge er?
ror, if satisfied he had committed it.
Tho short experience whieh it was the
privilege of the State to have of him in
a judicial station, has satisfied the bar
and the popio that his death is to be re?
garded an a public calamity. The reso?
lutions of your meeting are a proper and
becoming tribute to ono who you all so
well knew aud so highly regarded.
As we cannot recall to earth, him,
whom it hus p'ensed high Heaven to
tako (we trust) to u better sphere, let us,
at ouy rate, make his death a lesson to
us who survive-that we maj' remember
from it, that life, at best, is but t-.hort;
that its duties aro more than lifo itself,
and the duo fulfillment aud performance
of them, the only evidence that it hat
been properly spent. Your proceedingf
are ordered to he entered ou tho minutef
