Politico. HI ;
Pol?tica, aays the New O rle wa Times,
which waa originally snpposod tb lije the j
soienoe of Cover a meut, boo gradually
degenerated, under radical,management.
Into a soienoe of trickery, deceit and
fraud/ In tho intellectual world it baa
become a oysteua of sharp practice; in
the moral world it is practically the last
resort of sooundrelism.'. Years ago,
when foul deeds were properly rebuked
and punished, men who resorted to tho
perjuries and deceptions which are now
co common among tho baser sort of
politicians, would have been tried for
their offences and invited to dance upon
nothing beneath a leafless tree. Now,
all this ia changed. Success is regarded
by the grasping as the only test of merit,
and with'Machiavellian ekin, all sorts of
lies aroinvoated to throw the blame for
every wrong on those who assume an
attitude of opposition. The truth is,
corrupt politicianu have beoomo the
bane of thio country and a perpetual
disturbo? of tho peaoo. All the terrible
humiliations and groas wrongs which
eur people have au fifer od since they re?
turned Coy their allegiance, at the dose of
the lato unpleasantnoaa, have been part
and parcel of the machinery by which
the radioala have triumphed, and of tho
craft by whioh they\have made their
wealth. Indeed, American radicals have
ron politics into the lowest depths of in?
famy and degradation. The negro has
been at once their agent and their tool;
their oats-paw and their viotim. They
have put him forward upon all occasions
as a screen for the shafts which were
leveled at themselves, and if there was
any danger to be encountered, or dirty
deed to be done, the black guard was al?
ways thrust forward as the proper man
and brother .for the business. Thus it
has happened that since peace was pro?
claimed, there has been no peace, but in?
stead thereof our quiet, honest and in?
dustrious oitizens have been subjeoted to
acts of atrocious insult and deeds of
malignant revenge, which no people,
entitled to the rights of self-government,
were ever before called upon to suffer.
Ia the recent contest triumph has again
perched ?upon tho radical banners, but
from the outlook .we can already dis?
cover the beginning of the end. Had
their opponents brought-out their best
men and conducted the campaign with
that earnest and straight-forward strategy
which begets faith, they might have suc?
ceeded. They have had another failure,
and in that failure another warning.
May it do them good.
DEATH OF JUDGE F. D. RICHARDSON.
We learned yesterdny of tho death of the
Hon. F. D. Richardson, whioh took
place in Clarendon County, nt tho house
of ex-Governor Manning, on Sunday
evening, the 20th iustant. Tho deceased
was the sou of the Hon. John S. Rich?
ardson, one of thu Associate Judges of
tho State for a period of many years.
Ho was born iu Sumter, in 1818, and
after remaining for a long time in the
Charleston College, studied law in tho
office of the lato distinguished Attorney
Geueral, Henry Bailey, E^q., and was
admitted to the bar in 183D. Ho soon
achieved for himself a brilliant r?puta?
tion, being equally, remarkable for his
power of analysis and profouud attain?
ments, fortified by a wonderfully reten?
Ho was for many years a member of
tho Stato Legislature, in the lower house,
where he exercised a control necessarily
incidont to his commanding talents.
Upon tho re-organization of the Judi?
ciary system after tho war, he was pro?
moted to tho Bench, having been elected
n District Judge for Berkeley, iu which
position ho added greatly to his well
Dr. J. Marion Sims, a well-known
surgeon of this State, has lately return?
ed from France, where ho was Surgeon
iu-Chief of the Anglo-American ambu?
lance corps, which has rondercd good
service to .both French and Prussian
soldiers. In regard to reports concern?
ing the declining health of Louis Napo?
leon, ho says that the supposition that
Napoleon is a decrepit old man is a grout
mistake. His intellect was nover moro
vigorous than at present, and hi3 physi?
cal hoalth is perfect, with tho exception
of a few trifliug infirmities. He is oc?
casionally Bubjoct to sciatica, but to no
disease that threatens life. Dr. Sims
speaks of tho Prince Imperial as a strong,
rosy boy, in perfect health and very in?
telligent. Tho average physique of tho
Germans is spokan of us being superior
to that of tho French. Dr. Sims states
that tho French ambulance corps is
badly organized, that tho surgeons aro
often incompetent or neglectful, and that
tho suffering of tho French wounded
from neglect has boon terrible.
