Tile Amendment to tile State Constitu?
There will be submitted to the people
of the State, at the approaching election,
a very important amendment to tho
Constitution of the State. The resolu?
tion passed by tho General Assembly at
its last session, to submit the amend?
ment to the vote of the people, was,
doubtless, designed by its authors mainly
to enhanoo tho value of outstanding
State bonds, and with but little pnrpose
or care for its final adoption. It is in
"To the end that the publio debt of
South Carolina may not hereafter be in?
creased without the due consideration
and free consent of the people of the
State, tho General Assembly is bereby
forbidden to create any further debt or
obligation, either by the loan of the
oredit of tho State, by guarantee, en?
dorsement or otherwise, except for the
ordinary and current business of the
State, without first submitting the ques?
tion us to the oreation of any such new
debt, guarantee, endorsement or loan
of tho credit, to the people of this State,
at a general eleotion; and unless two
thirds of the qualified voters of this
State, voting ou the question, shall be in
fcvor of a further debt, guarantee, en?
dorsement or loan of this credit, none
shall be created or made."
Wo desire to call the attention of can?
didates, both Mosoyites and Bolters, to
this amendment, and to have a declara?
tion from.thom, whether or not they are
in favor of its adoption. To take steps
at this late day to restrain the power of
the General Assembly in creating publio
debt, is painfully like looking tho door
after the steed has been stolon. But it
is a good thing to be dose at any time.
The indiscreet and frequently dishonest
tampering with the publio orodit by Le?
gislatures, hos become the crying abuse
of the age, and the proliflo parent of
that official corruption which at present,
moro than anything else, endangers the
permanence of republican institutions.
We hope tho citizens throughout the
State will see tc it that the two parties
and the individual candidates, particu?
larly of the Legislature, shall give some
publio expression of their opiniou on
this subject. Lot every candidato an?
swer through the publio press. We
would be glad to hear from the candi?
dates from our own County for member?
ship of the House of Representatives,
how they stand on this question.
The Kieutlon lu Georgia.
The accounts from our sister State
across the Savannah, as to the result of
the eleotion, are most cheering. The
Administration party has been defeated
by a larger majority than ever before.
It is claimed that Jamos A?. Smith, the
gubernatorial oandidute of the Demo
orate and Liberal Republicans, han out?
stripped his opponent, Walker, by 40,000
or 50,000 votes. The Georgia press is
jubilant over the victory, as it may well
be, for tho gallant Goorgians have ex?
ceeded expectations. The report of ma?
jorities uro doubtless somewhat above
the true figures, but there is no doubt
that the full Conservative vote was
polled. Tho assumed apathy of tho
whito people has boen provon untrue.
Tho Bourbon Democrats of Georgia do
not amount to a hand-fnl. and thoy will
make no better show in the Presidential
election than thoy did on Wednesday
A bet is said to bu a fool's argument,
which, if truo, clearly establishes the
fact that thero aro a great many foolish
people yet to bo found in tho busy, bust?
ling world around us. Now, whatever
may be said of tho Hon. John Morrissey,
of New York, no ono ovor char ged him
with being a fool, notwithstanding tho
faot that he loves betting cs dearly as a
fish loves water. He recently passed a
few hours in Philadelphia, and while in
that quiet and highly moral city indulged
in his favorite pastime, in a manner that
plainly indicated that ho had plenty of
cash and confidence to invest in the eleo?
tion of Buckalow. Among tho bets mado
by him on Monday last were 08,000 to
$10,000 that Buckalow will bo eleoted
Governor; $1,G00 to 02,000 on the same
result; $1,000 to 81,000 that Buokalow
will get 8.C00 majority outside of Phila?
delphia, and 81,000 to $250 that Har
tranft won't get 20,000 majority in tho
State. The Hon. John also offered to
bot $5,000 that ho would continuo to bet
at tho above odds up to tho day of elec?
tion-no takers. Tho Hon. John, we
believe, has returned to his humblo homo
in Gotham, awaiting "tho good timo
coming," which ia expected on Wednes?
day morning next, when ho will bo called
upon to bag tho superabundant cash so
rocklessly risked by the Radicals.

Oar W??l?lnston Correspondence-.
WABHINGTOX, D. C., October 3, 1872.
To THE EDITO? OF THE PHOENIX: A few
days more and the agony will bo over.
On Tuesday night, or on Wednesday by
noon, at farthest, it will bo known in
every oity of the United States whether
we are to be, in the futuro, a united peo?
ple, with common rights, common inte?
rests and a common purpose, or whether
a large portion of oar country is to be
doomed for four years more, after the
4th of March, 1873, to have tho little
life-blood remaining in it sucked out by
mercenary carpet-baggers and ignorant
negro legislators-whether the South is
to bo the Ireland, the Hungary, or tho
Poland of this great nation, oppressed
by speoial and unconstitutional legisla?
tion, or to be an integral part of it
whether its young peoplo aro to bo sur
ronndod by influences calculated to de?
velops und foster in them love of their
oountry and of its institutions, or aro to
be aggravated into sullen hatred of, or
activo hostility to them, by the continued
disfranchisement of their fathers, elder
brothers and other relatives a ad friends.
Qod help the South-the entire country,
for that matter-if it is to be consigned
for another four years to the guardian?
ship of the characterless, swiudling
scoundrels who, for their own base and
selfish purposes, havo kept it in hot
water during the last past seven years.
Bat there need be no fear, I think, of
such a dire oalamity.
The Star, of this city, a Grant organ,
virtually gavo up Indiana and Pennsyl?
vania, a few days ago, to Hendricks aud
Buckalow; but Judge Edmunds, Secre?
tary and general manager of the Grunt
Congressional Committee, still pretends
to think that these two States will go for
tho corruptionists, and so, of course, do
all the other Grant offlco-holders. But
their looks and general demeanor belie
their expressions of confidence. They
are not bland and exaltant as they wero
a few weeks ago, bat have beoomo cap?
tious and quarrelsome. Most of tho
active men in tho Qrant ranks hero aro
fighting for their very lives-with politi?
cal halters round their necks. Seaator
Harlan, of Iowa, for example, who is
now running the Chronicle, knows very
well that he will never be heard of again,
if Grant is defeated. Harlan was repu?
diated by his Stato, and when he leaves
the Senute, on the 4th of next March, ho
will go back to Iowa tho most unpopular
Cresswell was never anything moro
than a fourth-rate lawyer ia Maryland,

SUMTER, S. G., October 5.
Thu true Republicans held a maBS
meeting in thia town yesterday. There
was a large gathering of both races, the
blacks, OB usual, preponderating. The
Moses faction resorted to all the usual
tricks to prevent the presenoo of a crowd,
but failed. Some of their candidates,
being present, were invited to speak and
did so. They wero listened to respect?
fully by the bolters, but whenever a
bolter speaker addressed tho meeting,
every effort waB made by a few negroes
to insult and disturb thom. This, how
evor, was done only by about u half
dozen young men, who aro woll known
servants of F. J. Moses, (his carriago
driver and domo?tics,) headed by preach?
er (Senator) Johnson. Their conduot
was indeoeut and disgusting, nnd, to the
honor of the very large crowd present,
met with no Bympathy. Tho meeting
was addressed in tho following order:
T. J. Coghlan, Senator Sawyer, Cardozo,
Fleming, Westbury, Daddy Cain, Judgo
Green and Whittemoro-all for tho bolt?
ers, except Cardozo and Cain. Tho
bolters held the orowd until nightfall,
and the Moses Court House ring was at
a discount. Chief Justice Moses did
not attend the mooting, but appeared
occasionally in thu oiling, engineering,
us usual, his party.
Mr. Tomlinson was not present, much
to the regret of the people, who still
hope to have a visit from him when he
Tho speaker who followed Cardozo
said that Cardozo's appearance showed
that ho had been among tho fut pickings,
and it was no wonder he could talk for
Moses, when, if Moses was elected, Car?
dozo would have the key to the Treasu?
CAUTER.-The Union, of Friday, con?
tained a sensational article, which was
followed by tho following, yosterday:
The informal examination of Carter
lasted until lato, or rather early in tho
morning yesterday, and resulted iu the
commitment of the prisoner to Richland
County jail. On the way thither he as?
serted that ho had been made a dnpe of
others who wero acting as his accom?
plices in tho matter. Telegrams have
settled the matter beyond doubt that tho
conspiracy was pretty well planned, but
very poorly carriod out. That Carter
should havo successfully passed himself
off on the Charleston people as a secret
service agent, ia somewhat astonishing.
The Court of General Sessions convenes
next week, and tho wire-pullers' case
will, doubtless, prove one of tho most
interesting. The following is the affida?
vit in the warrant made by the Secre?
tary of the State Central Committee,
upon which Trial Justice Richmond
committed Curter at about 2 o'clock yos?
terday morning, he having waived an
examination, and beiug unable to fur?

A BEAUTIFUL INCIDENT.-A young man
recently ran away tro m tho galleys of
Toulouse. Ho waa strong and vigorous,
and arrived next morning bofore a cot?
tage, and stopped to get something to
eat, and get a refuge while ho reposed a
little. But he found tho inmates of tho
cottage in tho greatest distress. Four
little ohildren sut trumbling in the cor?
ner-the mother sat weeping und tear?
ing her hair, and tho father was walking
the floor in much agony.
The galley slave asked what wai tho
matter, and tho father replied that they
were that morning to bu turned out of
doors, becauso they could not pay their
"You soo me driven to despair," said
tho father, "my wifo and little ouep de?
prived of food and shelter, and I with?
out means to pr?vido for them."
The convict listened to tho tale with
tenrs of sympathy, and said:
"I will give you tho means. I have
just escaped from tho galleys. Whoever
brings back an escaped prisoner is enti?
tled to a reward of fifty francs. How
muoh doos tho rent amount to?"
"Forty frunes," answered tho father.
"My children should starve before I
would do BO base a thing."
The generous man insisted, and de?
clared that ho would go and give himself
up if the father would not take him.
The latter yielded, and taking his pre?
server by the arm led him to the city and
to tho Mayor's ofiico.
Everybody was surprised to seo that a
little man had been ablo to capture such
a strong young fellow.
Tho fifty francs wero paid, and the
prisoner sent back to the galleys; but
after he was gone thc father asked u pri?
vate interview with tho Mayor, to .whom
he told tho whole story. Tho Mayor was
so much uffected that bo not only added
francs to the father's purse, but wrote
immediately to the Minister of Justice,
begging tho noblo prisoner's release.
The Minister examined into the uflair,
and finding it was a comparatively small
offence which condemned the young man
tu the galleys, and that lie bad already
served out half of his term, ordered his

Purr ATE REPROOF OF CHILDREN.-Pro?
bably most parents, oven kindly ones,
would bo a little startled at tbe assertion
that a ebild ought never to be reproved
in the presence of others. This is so
constant an occurrence that nobody
thinks of considering whether it be
right and bebt, or not. But it is a great
rudeness to a child. I am entirely sure
that it ought never to be done. Mortifi?
cation is a condition as unwholesome as
it is uncomfortable. When the wound
is inflicted by the hand of a parent, it is
all the more certain to rankle and do
harm. Let a child seo that his mother
is so anxious that he should have the ap?
probation and good will of her friend
that she will uot call their attention to
his faults, and that while sho only, under
any circumstances, allows herself to tell
him afterward alone, if he has behaved
improperly, she will spare him the addi?
tional pain and mortification of publia
reproof; and, while that child will lay
those secret reproofs to heart, ho will
Btill he happy. I koow a mother who
had the insight to see this, and the
patience to make it a rule; for it takes
far more patience, far moro time, than
the common method. She said some?
times to her little boy, after callers had
left the parlor: "Now, dear, I am going
to bo your little girl und you are to be

his mother's gowa, of dramming on the

wo consider seriously what ought to be
the nuture of a reproof from a parent to
a child, aad what is its ead, the answer
is simple enough. It should be nothing

or in a churlish, unkind manner, even to

FOOLSCAP.-Tho origin of tho term
"foolscap" has doubtless puzzled many
writers who aso the paper known by
tI that name, and yot, as ia many similar
cases, it took its name from a very
simplo circumstance Charlos I, of
England, granted numerous monopolies
> I for tho support of tho Government.
Among others, was tho manufacture of
paper. The water-mark of the finest
sort was tho royal arms of England.
Tho consumption of this artiole was
great, and large fortunes were made by
those who purchased the exclusive right
to vend it. This, among monopolies,
was set aside by tho Parliament that
brought Charles" I to the scaffold; and
by woy of showing their coutempt for
tho King, they ordered the royal arms
to be token from the paper, and a fool
with his oap and bells to bo substituted.
It is now over 200 years since the fools?
cap was taken from the paper, but still
the paper of the size, whioh tho Rump
Parliament ordered for their journals,
bear tho Dame of tho water-mark, placed
there as an indignity to Charles.
