Jadge Orr'? Views.
Our readers have had tho opportunity
to form their own opinion as to tho
political couree recommended to the
white people of South Carolina by Judge
Circumstances have thus far restricted
our comments thereupon, to a few lines
of emphatio dissent. Our purpose now
is not to review all the extraordinary
statements and speculations of the
Judge, but briefly to expose his fallacies,
and to suggest the insufficiency of his
Btudied plea. Judge Orr "will voto for
Scott and Ransi?r." This is the propo
position that he commences with, and
causes to stand out in bold relief. Well,
so much the worse for him, that he pro?
poses so to do, when the better ticket of
Carpenter and Butler stands before him.
In the seoond place, Judge Orr objects
to the reform movement, not because it
is wrong in principle, not because it is
uncalled-for by the exigences of the case,
but because, in his own judgment, it j
does not promise success. Here Judge
Orr betrays his great woakness-his
utter- unreliability to be the trusted
adviser of an honorable, high-toned
community. Assume,, that success is
not promised. Is all to be. sacrificed for
success, either in political affairs or out?
side of them? Are not some kinds of
victory more disastrohs than defeat?
Does Judge Orr.thus propose to corrupt
the youth and the manhood of the State,
by suggesting that success is to bo orite
rion ever of merit, and the rr.easure of
political aotion? Is he prepp.red to say,
"My fellow-citizens, be successful-by
fair means, if possible; but by means
fair or foul, be SUCCESSFUL." This is
monstrous in ethics-oven in political
ethics-and yet this is virtually tho
ethics of Orr and his school of politi?
cians. Their's .is Bacon's "philosophy
of fruit," and Bacon's philosophy, too,
not in its best aspect. And yet Bacon
has been called "wisest, brightest and
meanest of mankind." Let Judge
Orr remember that every virtuous effort
is a success-every vicious oue a disaster.
But we deny that the reform movement
is wanting in the possibilities and oppor?
tunities of i success. And we contend
that the method it proposos of reform, is
far more plausible aud practical than
that suggested by Jndgo Orr. We pro?
pose now to turn his argument of
figures upon him. It is stated by the
radicals that the negro voters of the
State stood to the white voters as 87,000
to 03,000. Assume these numbers to bo
correct. Judge Orr says, suppose 100
good men in every County, instead of
undertaking to oppose tho radical party,
had gone into it, to purify and control it.
Well, assume they had. The result
would have been 3,000 saints seekiug to
influence 87,000 sinners. We would not
give much for the ohaucp of success here,
Outside of the fact that "evil communi?
cations corrupt good manners," we fear
that the sinners would go on steadily in
their preconceived plan of operations.
Wo deem it muob more suggestive of
success for the 63,000 whites to take a
reasonable attitude, and by fair, open
and manly appeals, seek to control tho
political aotion of 18,000 radical voters.
This is the plan of the reformists, and it
is a better plan than that of Judge Orr.
Judge Orr should certainly apply at
once for letters patent, in order to secure
for himself the exclusive right and use
of his wonderful, and new, and original
method of political action I Join your
opponents in order to boat them! Join
radicalism in order to control it ! Plunge
into its turbid waters, seething with
corruption, in order to purify thom]
This is Governor Orr's method of saving
South Carolina. Heaven save us from
such Stato-saving as this. Heaven save
na from such a political course as Go?
vernor Orr would have South Carolina to
adopt, in order that his inexcusable course
may thus be sanctioned.
In his letter he has not a little to say
as to the identity between tho reform and
the radical organizations, and suggests
to the Democrats of tho State how oasy
it is to step from tho ono to the other.
Wo have already had a good deal to
say to disprove this identity. Let us
say to Judge Orr, that a wide river rolls
between reform and radicalism, aud ho
who passes it should panse, as C:esar did
upon tho banks of tho Ilubicou, for ho
will bo "froo no more." Judge Orr's
defection has not como upon us unex?
pected. Still it was received by us with
pain. We must regard his political
attitude us un wiso and inconsistent with
tho good of tho State, and justified by
no arguments contained in his lotter of
explanation. Wo consider him as having
turned his back upon his State and follow?
ing after false gods. Wo notice that the
radical organ receives him with open
arms and takes him to its sympathetic
bosom. Orr is now a great, good mon,
for bas he not put on the garments of
"the loyal?" And we noUoe further, that
tho radical organ afflrms^that Judge Orr,
having a wide influence, especially in the
upper country, will carry with him an
army of recruits to ewell tho hosts of
radicalism. Here the organ will find
itself grievously disappointed. It in?
sults the intelligence and the integrity of
thoso people when it thus argues. All
radicalism may sneeze whon the Head
Centre takes snuff-all radicalism might
vote for a donkey, provided he were the
regular nominee of the sacred league.
But not so is it with tho true and inde?
pendent people of the up-country, to
whom - the organ refers. Thoy will not
follow Governor Orr in his dofection.
They have in tho past loaded him with
honors. They have decked him with
laurels. They have made him United
States Representative and United States
Senator, and Colonel of a Confederate
regimont aud Governor of tho State.
But because they have done all this, and
yet finds that these could not keep him truo
to them in their evil fortunes, they will
now turn away from him and realize with
greater foroo tho extent of his offence,
and the magnitude of the wrong done to
them. They may still regard him the
kind and genial neighbor, suchas, doubt?
less, he will continue to bc They may
still hold him the able and impartial
Judge, for this we havo no reason to
deny to him. But they will reject with
scorn his political advice, under the
conviction that in this respect, nuder tho
influence of ambition or ? some less cx
n.Iced feeling, the cause of tho STATE has
been subordinated to tho cause of Omi.
"What we havo written with respect to
Judge Orr, we have written reluctantly,
but ireely as is meet. An audacious
lotter demands bold criticism. We could
not allow Judge Orr's views to go un?
challenged, for we shared in tho defcr
euce once due to his great ability, linked,
ns we thought, with earnest devotion to
the commonwealth. Weoan think HO no
longor, and wo must hold Judge Orr as
wo hold the rest of thoso arrayed, as we
believe, against the best interests of
Several months have elapsed sinco the
discomfiture and death of .?h o Paraguay?
an President, Lopez, during whioh time
ho has been calumniated by his victors
as a monster of iniquity, when at last, an
American resident of Asuncion comos to
his rescue, repelling many of the slan?
ders with which he has been so liberally
assailed. According to this correspond?
ent, Lopez was a bravo and gallant sol?
dier, exercising a rule as mild and intel?
ligent us the circumstances surrounding
him would admit of. He positively de?
nies thc ill trcatmeut alleged against
Lopez's mother and sisters, who, it will
be recollected, according toBraziliau ac?
counts, were to have been executed on
the moruiug of his capture, and says that
most of the people supposed to have
been shot, flogged, or lanced to death by
the late President, aro daily turuing up
alive, claiming property ami indemnity.
All these murderous charges mado
against tho dead boro seem to have been
manufactured out of tho whole cloth by
his enemies for political effect. At tho
time of his capture his forces had
dwindled to only two hundred and fifty
men, at whose head he died gallantly iu
action, and not in an endeavor to escapo,
CARPENTER'S BEST.-Tho following
capital hit was made by Judge Carpen?
ter, while speaking in front of the Co?
lumbia Hotel, at an impromptu meeting
on Tuesday night last. It has been the
custom of many of thc radicals to inter?
rupt the Judge by asking impertinent,
aud often insulting questions, but the
Judge is never at a loss for a quick and
cnttiug reply, nnd seldom fails to cause
the intruder to hide his diminished head
uuder a shout of derisive laughter from
the audience. On the night alluded to,
a wissen-faced, stiff-eollared, official look?
ing fellow interrupted tho Judge, by
asking him "if he (tho Judge) did not
expect to seouro a largo practice in his
profession, from thisTcampaign, after ho
was defeated for Governor?"
To which tho Judgo roplied: "Well, I
don't expect to bo defeated, but if I nm,
I shall go to practicing law agaiu; and I
expect the first case I shall have will be
to defend 3'ou or some other of tho pre?

THE MILITIA. ACT-Gov.- Bc OTT LIABLE
TO INDICTMENT.-The Act of the General
Assembly, "approved March l?, 1869,"
has Jibeen violated io letter and spirit by
Gov. Sobtt"and he is liable to indict*
ment and punishment. The Act io top
long-to quote in full, but will be found
at page 215? statutes at large, regular
0 es H ion, 1868-?9. The Act prescribes
that "AU persons liable to military duty
within this State, who are jnot already,
members of tho National Guard, shall
immediately, upon the passage of this
Act, be enrolled. All porsons between
the ages of eighteen and forty-five shall
This duty is imposed-upon the Go?
vernor as Commander-in-Chief. Eight?
een months havo passed pince Gov.
Soott put his namo officially to this Act
and made it a law. Ho has faillcd to
obey this law and carry it into oporntion.
Herein he has violated the law by fla?
Section 12 provides, "That if any
officer charged with any duty under the
provisions of this Act, shall refuso or
neglect to perform any of tho duties re?
quired of him by this Act, he shall for?
feit and pay, &o., Ac, and bo guilty of
a misdemeanor." Gov. Scott is 'an
officer of tho militia, and liable to thc
penalties of this Act.
Section 14 provides that "There shall
bo no military organization, eco, kc,
not authorized under this Act."
The military organizations recently
made by Govornor Scott aro not au?
thorized under the law. The parties are
liable "to punishment by imprisonment
at hard labor in the Stato Penitentiary,'?
and Governor Scott is participes criminis
in these organizations.
There is no shadow of provision for
tho separate organizatiou of tho colored
militia. It is au assumption of power
for which Govornor Scott should bc im?
peached and broken. Tho responsibility
of whatever may happen is upon his Ex?
cellency. If breaches of the peace
occur, and blood aud disorder follow, the
responsibility is ou tho chief peaco officer
of the State. There aro no lawful mili?
tary organizations in South Carolina,
dating subsequent to March 1G, I860.

I One of tho Paris correspondents states
that tho . plan of tho French campaign
was laid down by tho Emperor, and was
not communicated to the chiefs of tho
corps until his arrival at Metz. This
story, which was a rumor when writteu,
seems confirmed by subsequent events.
Evidently it was not the plan of any of
the French Marshals familiar with tho
great Napoleon's maxims, in one of
which stress is laid on tho danger of con?
centrating too near tho enemy's posi?
tion. Tho French lino on the frontier
oxtendod ovor fifty milos of territory,
and corps were in several instances sepa?
rated by a full day's march. This was a
faulty disposition of hisVorccs, which
would have invited attack from a less
enterprising foo than tho Prussians.
Tho city has moro Southern visitors at
this moment thau at nuy timo since thc
restoration of peace. Some of our
largest hotels are literally crowded with
them. They seem intent upon blending
pleasure with business, and not nt all
unwilling to talk, and act, and enjoy
themselves generally as though they had
never smarted uuder tho procoss of re?
construction. Their presence indicates
tho return of prosperity to thc South,
gradual it may be, and beset with
vexatious recollections, but having all
the signs of health and durability. They
will go back, we aro sure, impressed with
u conviction that New York is, in tho
largest sense, metropolitan, and that thc
poople they moot hero aro as hearty and
kind as in the olden days.

oarries with it even a remote chance for
ene of tho few prizes that reward tho
labors, hazards and harassments of mer?
cantile pursuits. A very large propor?
tion of thoso young waiters on fortuno
aro disappointed in the start, and too
often form habits of idleness and dissi?
pation while expecting that something
will turn up for them, and many more,
wh"o succeed in making a first step, soon
fall back on their frionds, dishenrtencd
and disappointed, when they seo how

There is no portion of the community
which should command greater iuterest
than thoso young meu. They are for
the most part the sons of worthy parents,
who have done all they eau do for them.
They are mainly, no doubt, of good prin?
ciples, and havo ii sincere intention and
desire to bo properly occupied. They
havo tho natural eagerness and hopeful?
ness of youth prompting them to gene?
rous effort. Those who fail to get such
employmont as they at first seek, if they
will in tho meautimo become inured in a.
measure to out-door labor, with the
kuowledgo of it gained, will have learned
that there is not so much hardship as
they supposed, but a great deal of inte?
rest and satisfaction in work in thc
couutrj*, where there are any number of
.'situations" waiting to bo filled.
It is too lato in the day, we should
suppose, to fear the influence of a false
shume, and a fear of degradation iu
takiug hold manfully of the work of the
farm. There uro so many wholesome
examples, especially since tho close of
our late war, of young men of the high?
est social position settling down to the
sober duties of farm life, with coats off
and bauds ungloved for the roughest
labors, that wo think so unworthy an
idea must have passed altogether away.
lu this counection, however, we may
commend to the consideration of 3-ouug
men a practico which prevails in some
European countries, aud especially iu
Prussia. A Taris correspondent of au
Engljsh journal, Land and Water, speaks
of a contribution of M. Emile de Lave
leye to tho Revue des Deux Mondes, in
which an interesting account is givpn of
the progresa mude by Prussia during the
fifty years of peace. "Nearly all the
land-holders," he says, "cultivate their
own estates. They are, therefore, re?
tained in the country by the care of their
own interests. It is true they are aided
iby a class of employees who are not
found in auyiother country. These are
educated young men, belonging to fami?
lies in good position, often just leaving
au agricultural college, who remain for
a certain.time on some largo estate to
initiate themselves in the practical di?
rection of one of their own. This novi?
tiate is au ancient custom still preserved
in many trades. Thus, frequently, the
sou of a rich hotel-keeper will not hesi?
tate to outer another hotel as butler or
waiter, to be initiated into all the details
of thc service over which ho will ouoday
have to preside. When any one visits
tho farms, he is astonished to see as su?
perintendent tho sou of a banker, a
baron, or a rich land-owner. These
young people drivo n cart or guide the
plow. At noon they return, groom their
horses, and thou go and dress themselves
nud dine at the owner's table, to whom
they are not inferior, either in instruc?
tion, birth or manners. After the meal
they resume their working dress and re?
turn, without nuy false shame, to their
rustic occupation. Thus wo find iu
feudal Prussia a trait of manners suited
to the Democratic society of the United
States, aud which hereafter will become
Lot us hopo that our young men will
begin to recognize tho fact that there

A BEAUTIFUL THOUOUT.-It may be truth?
fully said that the greatest of all blossings is
health, for without it tho joys vouchsafed are
turned to sorrows. To all health is essential
for life's enjoyment and pursuits, to the
young and old, to the rich and poor. Are yon
in search of wealth? Health is necneaary.
Do von desire oflico and worldly honors?
Of what avail would theao bo without health?
Tho beauties of spring, th<5 song of birds, the
deep blue sky, the rolling ocoan, all have a
poetic fascination which charms only the
healthy in mind and body; but to the sick
what are these but mockeries. The body dis
eased, tho mind sickly o'er with tho saddest
nf thoughts. Oh! that I may live to appre?
ciate tho blessings of health. Thia rich boon
is within the reach of all. Tho remedy at hand
in H EINITSH'S QUEEN'S DELIOUT, tho health pa?
nacea. Now is the time to try it. A 2
Wu KS the blood becomes impoverished by
improper digestion, or thora is not sufficient
food taken into tho stomach to meet the re?
quirements of thc system, tho skin becomes
pallid, the lips and tongue turn almost white,
and the face assumes a wax-hko appearance.
This is a sure sign that the stream of life
needs enriching, that tho blood is impover?
ished. How is this poverty of the blood, of
which emaciation, debility and nervous re?
laxation an? the ordinary symptoms, to bo
remedied? The only way would bo to invigo?
rate the stomach with Lll'l'M?N's G lt EAT GLU?
