StMa Press Association.
X gocidly number of the editors and
publisher* of j newspapers in this State |
met in Charleston, last Thursday, and
organized a State Press Association.
Constitution was adopted, in which the
objects of the association were declared
to be the promotion of the interests and
the elevation of the tone and character
of the press of the State of South Caroli?
na. The annual meeting is to be held
on the second Wednesday of May in
eaoh year; the officers are to bo elected
by ballot a majority being necessary to
elect\ tKe President,; Vice-Presidents,
Secretaries and Treasurer to constitute
an executive committee. The annual
fee of members is fixed at $5, payable in
advance. It was devolved upon the exe?
cutive committee tjp make arrangements
for the delivery of an address each year
upon the subject of journalism. It was
made the duty of every member, upon
ascertaining that any advertiser or adver?
tising ageua does '-not pay his bills, or is
?otherwise untrustworthy, to communi?
cate the fact to the Corresponding Sec?
retary, who shatfcninjjsjsedjSately report by
circular to eveJyAnctobeV^tne informa?
tion so receiveoSAd fronx'trhWm it came,
such communications to be considered
confidential. The association adopted
.resolutions upholding the liberty of the
press: ,i ? e . -> ?; < ?> ;* tj
Resowidi That we most emphatically
condemn any attempt,-from whatsoever
source, and irr whatever guise they come,
to abridge in axw way the,freedom of t\

ferenoe with the chartered rights of the
Eress to inquire into the conduct of pub
e officers', and to print whatever mat?
ter is proper for public information, as a
practice dangerous in its tendency, sub?
versive of right, insulting to justice,
fraught with evil and to be .denounced
and resisted- at 'all times, on all occasions,
and by all lawful means.
A resolution was also adopted express?
ing gratification at the failure of the
prosecution against the Charleston News
and Courier tot libel, and tendering to its
proprietors congratulations upon the re?
The following, gentlemen were elected

In tho Southern Baptist Convention,
in Charleston, on Saturday, a large num?

Tho Mexican Congress has approved
the construction 01 sundry railroads, in

events, it is presumable parties in tho

cause the Government does not pay
what it owes them. The revolution in
Miohoocan has paralyzed business in
that State. Rebels at Queretaro have
captured a convoy of arms and merchan?
dise, and at Arroyo Seoo, after a sharp
fight, robbed a diligence and murdered
one of the passengers.

The day fixed for the opening of the
Centennial exhibition is May 10, 1876?
just one year off. The buildings will be
ready for the reception of goods by the
close of 1875, when, by contract, all the
buildings ? must be completed. Of late
the prospects of tho success of the exhi?
bition have brightened visibly. Some of
the European Governments, that at first
hung back* are now actively enlisted in
the matter; and, in the case of Great
Britain, the request has already conic for
more space, for her goods than had at
first been allotted.

The NSW York Bulletin, in an article
on the diffusion of labor, calls upon tho

The New United States Coubt House
in this City.?We were pleased to learn
that, some ten days sinee, Judge Bryan,
of tho United States District Court,
visited Columbia and inspected the new
building in this city, intended for a post
oflice and United States Court House.
Wo regret to hear, at the same time, that
his visit was one of mortification and
disappointment. Externally the build?
ing is all that good taste could desire;
internally it is represented to be, in
some respects, a failure The court
room is assigned to the third story, and
is no wider than the pediment end indi?
cates in tbe elevation. The post office
occupies the place of honor, and even
the small employees of the Government,
such as the Internal Revenue Collector,
Ac, have places assigned Iben? on the
spacious second floor; while the right
arm of the Government, indeed, one of
its grand deparments?the judiciary?
has been stuck up into the cock-loft
We are informed that the attention of
Mr. Mullett (.the architect of the build?
ing) was called to this incongruity, by a
gentleman oi this city, at an early dov,
who was informed by him that he did
not quite Understand what he was talk?
ing about. As Mr. Mullett bos gone into
sweet retirement, we sincerely trust that
his successor will take this matter in
hand, and, before it is too late, restore
the fitness of things in this new build?
ing, which was intended as an ornament
to the town and a suitable representative
of tbe Government at the capital of the
State. This building will lost a thou?
sand years, for it is' constructed of
our native granite, and it should be
now so constructed as to meet all
the growing wants of an increasing
population and the greatly increased
and ever increasing business of the
United States Courts/ There was a time,
perhaps, when these Courts did sit and
could sit anywhere, but that time has
gone by. The dignity of the Federal
Government is now presented to our
people in nothing so much as in its
Judiciary. Let it not in Columbia be
jammed "into a comer," which can be
conveniently reached only by an ele?
vator, and when reached, is a narrow,
confinod crib, quite unsuited to its pur?
pose. By all means, let tho Courts of
the Union occupy their dignified posi?
tion on tho second floor, and place the
small fry up-stairs. To put the Revenue
Collector in elegant quarters and the
' Chief Justice of the United States under
the sky-light, seems to be reversing tbe
order of things. We do trust that Chief
Justice Waite and Judge Bond will visit
us before their return, and overhaul this
important matter while there is time to
correct a serious blunder, which will be
felt now and ever hereafter. We are
sure that a visit from the Chief Justice,
enabling our citizens to form his ac?
quaintance, will be a source of gratifi?
cation to him. We can bespeak for him
the friendly good will, the conrtesies
and profound respect of our people.

in verse as "the bridal of the earth and
sky." After gentle showers about mid?
day, the sun caine out in the Afternoon
in all its splendor, out veiled My passing
clouds, much of its power was abated,
whilo the air was.' tempered by cooling
breezes. It Wh qfflay for the Indulg'cncaj
of patriotic" feeling, for putting away
self and consecrating time and effort to
the offices of affectionate tribute to the
hallowed .dead. It was Memorial Day.
The heart traveled back :i few years, and
took in afresh all the noble, thrillingand
affecting events which preparod the way
for a sad, sad sequel. But hope was
present, too, and the occasion was one
which lod the thoughts forward as well*
as backward. The lesson of duty, iu
obedience to which our soldiers died,
receives every year from these pilgrim?
ages rich illustrations and fresh incen?
tives. It would be a mistake to suppose
that they merely feed sentiment, and are
barren oi useful and valuable effects.
They arc visits to the Mcccas of patriot?
ism, from which we return with renewed
ardor and inspiration to engago in the
struggles of life, and with brave hearts
to encounte. its trials.
At 5 o'clock, the tap of the drum an?
nounced that the Rifle Club, Captain
Thompson, were on their way to the
cemetery. They were followed by the
citizens generally, in carriages and en'
foot. Business was partially suspended,
many of the stores being closed. The
flag of the Independent Fire Company
was bordered with crape and hoisted at
half-mast. The bell of the Washington
Street Church was heard for the first
time - tolling in memory of the departed
At G o'clock, a procession was formed
at the porter's lodge, in Elmwood Come
terv, with the Rille Club in front, Mrs.
3. T. Darby, Miss I. D. Martin and other
officers of the Ladies' Monumental Asso?
ciation; then followed several hundred
children, in white dresses and black
sashes: after whicn came the ladies, fol?
lowed by a large delegation of the
sterner si>x. On passing the Confederate
monument, arms were reversed. Arriv?
ing at the soldiers' lot, the Rifles filed
along the South front, guards were
Sdaced, and after a fervent prayer by the
lev. J. H. Stringfellow, the children,
girls and ladies, laden with wreaths,
evergreens and other floral ornaments,
entered the enclosure and proceeded to
decorate the mounds of the hundreds
reposing therein. The graven in other
portions of the cemetery and in the dif?
ferent church-yards had been attended
to previously. Nor were the Federal
dead neglected?the few graves in the
cemetery found willing hands to deco?

ceremonies, the Rifles reformed, and the
immense throng quietly left the dead to

mounds arranged and walks put in
order. In the centre of the enclosure
was a moss-covered temple, trimmed
with evergreens, while suspended in and
around mere memorial wreaths in great
numbers. Over the gateway was an ity
inscribed shield, "Honor to the Heroes
who Died for their Country." TJbe North
front exhibited a pyramid, covered with
evergreens and moss, and surmounted
by an anchor, croes and crown, with
nameS' of the different battle-fields?
Manassas,' Cold Harbor, Gettysburg,
Seven Fines, Sharpsburg, Wilderness,
Fredcrickshrtrgj Petersburg, Chancel
lorsville, < 'hic amaUga, and dozens of
others -and the inscription, "In Memory
of our Heroes who Sleep in Distant
Graves." On the West was a large cross,
on which were the last words of Stone?
wall Jackson, ."Let us pass ovor the river
and rest Under tho shade of the trees."
On the East was another cross, and an
extract from Father Ryan's "Sword of
"Never, hand drew s>word fioiu sUua a*
And never sword led braver bartu, '
Or braver bled for a brighter land,
Or brighter land bad cause so grand,
Or a cause a chief like Lee."
The base of the projected monument
to the Confederate dead, in the centre of
the cemetery, was drapod with crape.
This monument, when completed, will
be a magnificent one. The base is of
finely-cut granite, upon which is to be a
shaft, emblazoned with the arms of the
State, surmounted by a marblo statue,
representing a Confederate soldier, with
arms at rest. This statue is now being
worked upon by a prominent sculptor in
Italy. By means of concerts, tableaux
and general subscriptions, $5,000 have
J br?n paid for this work, and it is hoped
that before next Decoration Bay, the
monument will loom up in all its beauty

For principle, for trUth and right,

He craved to live, to strike one blow
For freedom, and God granted,
Ere from tho strife of earth below
To the peace of "Heaven he did go.
The boon for which he panted;
efore the war's thick serried fights
He struck one blow for Southern rights,

Then went, for God him wanted.
For Heaven, that all its peace and calm,
His soul should be possessing,
Where, soothing as a Sabbath psalm,
And healing as a blessed balm,
Should be for him his blessing;
Where he, one of the seraph choir, ,
j Should tune his Heaven-instructed lyro
I To nobler strain and bigher, v.
Than earth his powers repressing,
Could ever be expressing. .

that time to the present, dyspepsia,
biliousness, intermittent fevers, muson

constipation have vanished under tbe
operation of the great specific, in at least
ninety per cent of the cases in which it
has been used as a remedy for those ail?

have been so obvious and uniform as to
secure the most perfect confidence in its
