JadgicCarpenttr and tl?? M?mbct? of
tbe Bar.
In view of tbo general interest mani
t es ted by oar community iu the recent
decision of Judge Carpenter in the mat*
tor of contempt alleged to havavbeen
committed by the attorneys for ibe
Citizens" Savings Bank, we fee! impelled
to examine into tbe crime for which bo
severe a punishment baa been visited
upon an honorable body of men, to see
upon what grounds its infliction has been
placed, or whether the punishment is
properly graduated to tbe offene?. This
has two heads, it seems, of wbioh one
consists in giving certsin advice, the
othen in receiving a retaining fee. Now
a lawyer's business is to advise clients
and act for thorn under certain circum?
stances. The presumption would neces?
sarily be/that this oonld hardly over bo
?cocetrned ihto an j unlawful or improper
act. in' this case the Judge gave an
order direotiog that property should
not he . deposed of. The attorneys,
wheli consulted 'by their client, advised
it jo seek the protection of a court
organised specially for just auoh oases
as his. ?f 'the Jndgo was free to^mako
bis order, tbe attorneys, in their capacity
-as euch, ware equally at liberty to give
-their best' advice. The order is not
affected by the advice. Can advice be
tortured or twiBted by any bnt a biased
mind info a disobedionoe of the Court's
ordet? It is hot an act that is forbid?
den. All writers, wo understand, agree
'that' the act must be, in its nature, in?
jurious^ and forbidden by the Oonrt.
Cau the filing of a petition, the making
?of an aflldavit, the giving of legal ad?
vice, be, by tbo most ingenious mind,
made to oome within tbo prohibition
to dispose of funds? It will require a
>wide latitude of oonstruotion to make
vaoftt and advice identical. It is rather
oloae probing, to Bay that the ndvioe was
given with a certain intention, and that
being adopted by the client, there arises
the presumption of "preconcerted ac?
tion." Advice, which is both good law
and good sense, ought surely not to be
construed into a oontempt of Oonrt, be?
cause the lawyer who gavo it, foresaw its
legal result, if properly followed.
Judge Carpenter seems iaolioed to
eueer at the speed with which Judge
Bond's opinion wa* reached. He for?
gets that ho has himself been slow to
render i his decree. There are persons
who suspect that something like resent
menti instead of conscientious care, was
at this bottom of such unseemly delibera?
tion on his part.
. Another question remains for brief
consideration. Can the acceptance of
a fee by lawyers be construed into con?
tempt, because their olients* assets are
under injunction? This proposition is
just as ontenablo as the other. The re?
ceiving of money from a person forbid?
den to pay it can only render the pay?
ment inoperative. There is no con?
tempt about it. It was the act by which
the attorneys were constituted the
agents of their clients for certain par
poses. They were not ageuts until the
fee was reooived. Tfrey were not agents
in receiving it.
It is thus seen that, as against these
attorneys, the offence of doiog some act
which they were forbidden to do is not
established. Their right to do just as
they did has been fully vindicated by
the United States Circuit Court, con?
firmed by the nniversal public senti?
ment. When wo prooeed further to
examine into tbe punishment passed on
six honorable gentlomeD, whose de?
pendence is upon the profession from
which it is sought to eject them, we are
struck with tbe singular alternative pre- j
souted to them. A school-man, in the
extravagance of his logic, might suy, "It
is credible becauso it is impossible;"
but in Judge Carpenter, it is trifling
with the rights of citizens, and an of?
fenen to the well-settled sense of justice in
the whole community, to say to honora?
ble practitioners at the.bar, "aobieve
impossibilities and yon may be rein?
stated." The impossible alternative re?
quired of the attorneys, to restoro tbe
assets of the bank to Judge Carpenter's
Court, is a small but intensely signifi?
cant thing. It must mean perpetual ex?
clusion. It is, further, an attempt at dio- j
tation, against which we raise our voice I
and enter onr protest. Attorneys are
just as independent in their sphere as
Judges. Their action iu that sphere
may not be restrained. And wo are
sure that a way will be speedily found
by wbioh the violated rights of these
gentlemen shall bo rodreseed. It is an
invasion in which tbe whole fraternity
of tbo noble profession of the law is in?
terested, and it will raako common
onuso with theso worthy buffering mem?
bers.

Mr. Calvin Hull died at Pendluton
Faotory ou tbo 8th.
The committee appointed by the pub
lio meeting held les t Mod day to present
to tbe Governor its action, and to make
certain requests, Was accorded an inter?
view with Lim yesterday, nt tho Execu?
tive office. The committee was courte?
ously received. In reference to the re?
quest of tbe meeting, that the time for
payment of taxes be extended to tho 1st
of March, the Governor expressed a
doubt as to bis constitutional right to
do so. In view of tho necessity of tho
case, ho had ventured to extend it al?
ready until tho 5th of February. He
promised to bring the matter promptly
to tbe attention of the Legislature,
which, he had no doubt, would do
everything proper to be doue. As to
the re-assessment of properly at a fairer
valuation, ho roferrcd tho oommittee to
tbe Comptroller-General, to whoso pro?
vince the matter specially holonged.
That officer bad issued circular forms,
on which the tax-payer, if uuduly as?
sessed, might make hiu otatemeuts, and
they would be carefully considered. If
the tax was shown to be excessive, a re?
bate could in this way be secured.
Tbe Governor intimated his purpose
to recommend to tbo General Assembly
the passage of an Act which would ena?
ble all parties, whoso lands had been ,
sold for taxes, to recover them upon i
payment of the tax, without costs.
The conversation turned upon the
general feeling entertained tuwardu the i
administration. The Govornor main- i
tained that it was disposed to be fuir
aud just to all tho people. Ho thought i
the criticisms indulged in towards it i
were sometimes too harsh.
He thanked the meeting for tbe can?
did manner in which it had brought the I
matters in which the people felt ag?
grieved direotly to his attention. It was ;
the first time it had been done by citi?
zen h from the conservative side in poli- i
tics during his administration. i
Tbe Rale at South Carolina.
We shall occasionally givo an extract
From the work of Mr. Pike, "The Pros- 1
tr?te State," in order that our anoon- 1
oernod people may sco themselves as
they are seen by others. The eighth
ahaptor opens with the following pass?
age, descriptive of the present rule in j
South Carolina, but denying that it can ,
or should last:
"The rule of South Carolina should
not be dignified with the name of go?
vernment. It is tho installation of a
huge system of brigandage. Tbe men
who have had it in control, and who
now have it iu oontrol, are the picked
villains of the community. They are
the .highwaymen of' tbe State. They
are professional legislative robbers.
They are men who have studied aud
practiced tho art of legalized theft.
They are in no senso different from, or
better than, the men wbo fill the
prisonu and penitentiaries of the world.
They are, in fact, of precisely that chv*e,
only more daring and and actons. They
pick your pockets by law. They rob
the poor and tho rich alike, by luw.
They confiscate your estutu by law.
They do some of these things even
under tbe tyrant's plea of tbe public !
good or the public necessity. They do
all simply to enrich themselves per?
sonally. The sole, base object is to
gorge the individual with public plun?
der. Having done it, they turn around
and buy immunity for their acts by
sharing their gains with the ignorant,
pauperized, besotted crowd who have
chosen them to the stations they fill,
and which enable them thus to rob and
plundor.
"Aro we to be told that these things
are iuovitubie, beuauru thuy uro the re?
sults of our theory of government, and
that that theory must bn sound? Is not
tbe true reasoning quite in tho other
direction? If these are tho legitimate
results of it, theu tho theory it; ut fault,
and its application must bomehow be
changed or modified, What tbo world
is after is results?souud, wholesome,
just results. These every inlelligeut
and just community will have, sooner or
later, iu one way or another. They will
uot forever endure tyrannies and op?
pressions aud outrages. It is tbe cor?
ruptions and the abuses of authority
thut stimulate revolutions, rupture
kingdom* and overturn empires. This
is as true now and will be as true in the
future as it has been iu the past. Fraud,
injustice, mis-rule in government, what?
ever their protean shupes, whether lofty
or low, whether uoble or ignoble in
their aspects, will breed a temper that
will seek to accomplish their ovorthrow.
Especially must this ho so in our times.
Does anybody suppose that such a con?
dition of things as exists to-day iu South
Carolina is to last? Such a supposition
is to ignore tbe history and the charac?
ter of manhood."
' Puullc Meeting.
In consequence of tho failure of tho
Committee of Thirteen, appointed to
confer with tbe Governor, upon matters
of public interest, to meet him, in con?
sequence of indisposition, yesterday, the
meeting wbioh it was expected would be
held to-day has, upon consultation, been
postponed to next Wednesday, the 21st
instant. It is hoped that the attend
?anoe on that day will be lurgo and
prompt. The times demand the people
shall cousnlt together. By request of

a copy of the Pendleton Messenger,
bearing .date July 1?, 1826. It U a
dingy little sheet, but has some news of

are published in it, signed by John W.
Taylor, Speaker of the Honse of Rep?
resentatives, John O. Oalhoun, Vice
President and President of the Senate,

States, John Quincy Adam). Tho death
of Mr. Jefforsop. in the eighty-fourth
year of bis age, in announced from Rich?
mond. An extract of a letter from
Cbnrlottesvillo, July -1, states that he
died that day, ten minutes before 1
o'clock, tho day ond hour on which the
Declaaation of Independence wus read
to Congress, July 4, 1776. It is added:
"No other euthanasia could have been
wished to him. Tho day of his fumo
was tho day of his death. Tin: applause
and gratitude of a whole republic were
at the very moment rehearsing his work
and repeating his praises."
Tho most interesting foreign nuns

lawyers being suspended from practice
for advice to clients; but injunctions
prevailed in Georgia, one of whose
