Saturday Horning, December 17,1870.
Tbe French Provisional Government
is once moro OD its travels. Tours has
been abandoned and Bordeaux selected
aa tho new temporary capital of the
struggling Republic. Thia movement
waV re'udored imperative by the rapid
approach ol the Prn&siaus to Toura.
Bordeaux ls not beyond the roach of tbe
swift moving German legions, and if
their leaders have determined to capture
tho now rulers of France, they will in a
ahort't?me compel them to forsake their
now abiding place- These removals of
the seat of> -Government must in the end
result in an amusing race between tho
peripatetic Fr?lich miera and the tire?
some troops of Germany.
We publish this morning the letter of
Jodge Vernon to the House of Repre?
sentatives. This is in reply to tho reso?
lution of impeachment. There is another
resolution now before tho House, against
Judge Vernon, demanding that he should
show oanse why ho should not be attach?
ed for contempt, in letting to bail the
."Laureus prisoners upon habeas corpus.
To this/resolution, he has to mako his
showing. Singular to say, tho Houso
has refused him counsel. This is Judge
Vernon's constitutional right. Tho House
may require that he shall appear ia per?
son before it. But how, upon such a
charge, they can refuse that he be heard
by counsel, is more than wc can compre?
hend. Judge Vernon ?3 now ill, and may
not he in a condition to appear iu person
this day, at 1 o'clock. What then? Com?
mit him for a contempt without a hear?
ing! Judges of South Carolina, is that
Thc Arlington Mutter in a. Nut-Shell -
Senator McCroery, a Kentucky gen?
tleman, with the old time notions of
honesty, proposes that tho United Slates
Government, whioh had robbed tho
Lee's of Arlingtou, should restore the
Senators Sumner, Morton, and other
latter-day saints of the Radical peasua
sion, prononnco Senator McCreery a
very. unreasonable mani The proposi?
tion is that Lee, as a dead rebel, has no
rights which a "loyal" Senator is bound
to respect. Sumner said that Stanton's
idea was to bnry the Federal dead at
Arlington, so that their ghosts might
frighten any of tho Lee's who might
return to tho ancestral home. What
would Mr. Sumner think of a man who
should go to his estate in Massachusetts,
and bury some Confederate dead there,
60 that their ghosts might frighten him
away from his property?
Such are the ethics that prevail in tho
United States Senate. The United
States Government robbed the Leo's of
Arlington, and now it is proposed to in?
vest the deed with a halo of "loyalty."
Tho Yorkvillo Enquirer, referring to
the efforts made to obstruct the execu?
tion of the writ of habeas corpus in the
aaso of the Laurens prisoners, says:
"Such action on the part of tho State
authorities deserves the condemnation
of all law-abiding citizens, and is ns
productive of harm on the ono hand as
are the Ku Klux outrages ou the other.
While it is desirable that the perpetra?
tors of the Laurens, as well ns other
disturbances, shall be punished, it is due
to all suspected parties that they have a
fair hearing before the constituted
Courts; and a denial of the privilege of
tho writ of habeas corpus is a stride
boding evil to the country, and not at
all adapted to allay the bad condition of
the disjointed times. To secure a strict
observance of the Jaws, let the law-givers
make the sxamplo, in preference to
usurping tho rights and privileges of

COLUMBIA, S. C., Dooember 15,1870.
To the Honorable Franklin J. Moses, Jr.,
Speaker of (Tie House of Representatives.
BIB: I havo the honor to acknowledge
the receipt of your official communica?
tion of yesterday, covering the reso?
lution of the House of Representatives
of tho State of South Carolina, in words
following, to wit: "That T. O. P. Ver?
non, Judge of the Seventh Judicial Cir?
cuit, be and is hereby impeached for
high crimes and misdemeanors." I have
no complaint to make against this aotion
of tho Honse of Representatives, wherein
it sees fit to prefer charges agtiinst me UH
a public officer, provided those charges
are made, an to form and substance, in
such manner that they can be answered
and mot by me. This is the constitu?
tional prerogative of the House of Re?
presentativos, on tho one hand, and it is
my constitntional right to answer tho
charges and repel them os best I may,
on the other, and to this end I demand
my trial. Let the charges be now made,
and I am prepared to defend my official
conduct iu the presence of the Senate,
sitting as a Court of Impeach ment. I
demand the specification of these high
crimes with:which I have boon charged.
I demand the specifications of misde?
meanors charged against m? in tho exer?
cise of tho functious of thc high office to
which I have been chosen. Permit me
hero to say thot I did not seek tho offico
of Judge ia South Carolina. I was ap?
pointed to it by the Qoueral Assembly,
without .solicitation on my part-in point
of fact, without my knowledge. I felt
then, ns I feel now, my unworthiness to
stand in tho place of tho illustrious men
of tho State who havo heretofore worn,
without fear and without reproach, tho
judicial ermino-men who have, by their
courage, their profouud learning und un?
sullied virtue, rendered illustrious the
judicial history of the commonwealth.
I nccoptcd the offico with neither the
hopo or expectation that I could illus?
trate it with that learning or exalt it
with that ability which had characterized
its past history; but, in aa, humbler
sphere, I honestly felt that, with God's
help, I could maintain untarnished nt
least its nucieut purity and unsullied vir?
tue. Great judicial talents may adorn
tho State, but without thoso advantages, a
less shining judicial quality, to wit: judi?
cial integrity, may otten serve tho State.
lu this latter quality, nt least, I claim to
be the peer of tho first among tho first,
and challenge au investigation, without
fear of proof to tho contrary.
It may bo to my individual comfort,
and perhaps it might gratify some, that
I should now tender to the General
Assembly the commission which I re?
ceived from it, without solicitation,
accepted in deference to its judgment,
have hold without dishonor, and nm
prepared to surronder without regret.
But in this grave isauo, personal con?
sideration must yield to a sense of public
duty. I do not stand alone. The inde?
pendence and integrity of tho judicial
branch of tho Government shall not be
stricken down in my person, without at
least a fearless, though it may bc iu
eflVctua), effort to resist all assaults upou
either, como from whatever quarter they
may. With this resolve, I submit my?
self to tho action of the House of Repre?
sentatives, and havo tho honor to com?
municate tho Hamo through you, its
presiding officer. I shall appear in per?
son wlxui summoned by tho Senate,
assisted by my counsel, tho Hon. Joseph
D. Pope and Col. A. C. Haskell, coun?
sellors at law, of this city. I am, sir,
very respectfully, your obedient servant,
T. O. P. VERNON.

contracts for tho printing of tho Legis?

and always would bo stealing in that de?
partment; and ho wanted Joe Woodruff
-whom all theScuatora know-to have a
finger in the pie. It was a broad asser?
tion, but whether complimentary to Mr.
Woodruff, or not, wc aro not prepared
to say. It is certainly time something
wus dono in tho mutter, as over three

cou tinned, although proposals have been
submitted ut prices fully twenty percent,
below present rates. .

PHOTOGRAPHY AS A SCIENCE.-It can no
longer bo denied that photography, as a
whole, is a science, and ono that demands
a speedy study. Tho mass of tho peoplo
havo, unfortunately, been led to behove
otherwise, and to regard it simply in a
mechanical point of view; therefore wo
deem it necessary to state, for tho benefit
of the art, and in justice to thoso practi?
cal photographers who havo mado tho
profession their lifo-timo study, that it
requires of ono tho possession of a tho?
rough kuowlo?goof chemistry, to under?
stand tho philosophy of light, and to
acquire a correct tasto and judgmont in
tho poso.'nnd tho distribution' of shades,
iu order to produco a pleasing and ar?
tistic picture. Tho eve must accustom
itself to detect, at a glance, any imper?
fections occasioned either by nu awkward
position, a false ray of light, br imperfect
condition of chemicals, and to remove
such, in order to create a clear aud bril?
liant effect. Wo could mention many
other requirements, but have no space to
ouumerato them. Those beautiful Rem?
brandt pictures, to ho seen at Weam &

finish; while their card photographs are
unsurpassed. Wo examined a set of pic?
