The Circuit Judges.
Eight Circuit Judges urc to he
elected s hy the Legislature ilttritig its
approachi tig'Scssioti, Ft is very pro
bable Ajrat Ihrco or ? a.r cf t!:->s; now
upon the Befielt will' be ivhc t'to "step
down und out." There arc object} nite
tosomc of them which vfieidareJa?y; will
have force with the General A:;?enibly ,
and consign tbeni to a foUrlh-rUtc prac
tice at home. It is an undeniable
fact that our judiciary needs^improv
ing, nnd the only way to do it is to
retire our objectionable* Judges' from
tho public gaze, nnd supply their
places with boLtcr material. Thcro
ia no paucity of good men; wo have
an abundance of thcin who will not,
if elected, disgrace the ermine of the
position by oppressing one class for
tho benclit of another. It is such as
these we would like to sec elected.
Then tho lamentable fact of a Judge
being too partisan to bold evenly the
scales of justice, between Democrat
and Republican, would no longer
characterize tho judiciary of .South
Carolina. Some of these dignitaripa
are too fond of pandering to the w is lies
of those whose opinions arc not in
accord with the times, to have that
independence and individuality of
character which should distinguish
the conduct of those whose duly it is
to administer the lav. Let the
"Legislature retire such judicial
frauds as these to the background,
null..fill their places with better and
The General Assembly has made
sotno sad mistakes in this matter in
the past, and we trust that it will not
go-from bad to worse. If honest,
capable men are placed in these posi
tions, the judicial robes that have
been dragging in the dust, with a dis
gusting sycophancy at the foot of po
litical Muthusalns, will be lifted tip
and cleansed. AVe want no Judges
who arc book-It Us. One or two of
those now upon the Bench would pay
tribute to a baboon, provided he wa
on intimate terms with Deacon Jones
and Col. Whfltyoumaycallbim. Give
us men for these positions; strong
bold, fearless men; strong to resist the
overtures of a certain clique; bold in
their adhesion to their political con
victions, and fearless in the discharge
of their duties. We should have men
of independence of thought and ac
tion?men who will not regard them
selves as infallible and perfect, and
every body else as fallible and imper
fect. We want Judges who will
compel the respect of their fellow
men, by their worth and honesty, and
who will not cringe or bow in worship
of an ec ho.
We have no particular Judges in
view, but write from a conviction that
an improvement is sadly heeded in
the judiciary of South, Carolina. We
do not suppose there can be any op
position to the re-election of Judges
Carpenter, Cookc, B?cd and Mayber.
The General Assembly, in our opin
ion, will be doing will to continue
these four faith fill public servants up
on the Bench; but that ho ly would
be making an egregious blunder by
vo'ing for the other four.
We I aru that 31 uj. A. P?. Knowl
ton,'of our own bar, is a candidate for
one of the upper Circuits. 1Jc is a
gentleman of culture and refinement,
and a lawyer whoso legal abilities arc
highly t'Sleojiyed by all who know him.
Thoroughly educated, und conver
sant witli Ihe law, bis elevation 16
tho Bench would do credit to the
Legislature, and give to South Curd
lina a pure minded and tipriglii .Judge.
It is to be hoped that our delega
tion will do their duty in the coming
fig'Ht. Let every man be at his pest
of duly whon the day arrives, and \vt
shall chronicle them as faithful ser
vanls: But don't thrust devils and
cdiols upon us, whatever else you
may do. We see fliese every day.

Tho Elections North.
It. is evident that the people of the
North arc not satisfied with the con
dition of affairs lu re in the South.
The late elections demonstrate this
fact, and place it beyond peradven
tu re. By souk; it is claimed that the
prime cause <d' the defeat of the De
mocracy is tractable 'alone to the
posilioti that pail}' occupies oil the
?tu'reney question. We do not assent
tu this explanation of (be failure of
?hi Bill Allen's party. The ilupubli
cans, nil over the country, believe that
iF a, rcluni.to lu\rd money is the best
thing for the >y el in re of the Govern
ment, that thevipnvtion will a<Jjust'
itself, no-mntter"' which parly should
triumph next your. If the Democracy
should carry the day, its loaders would
clamor as lustily for specie payments
as the Republicans, if they saw that
the exigencies of Government de
manded it. On the other hand, the
Republican party would, not cut. i).A
own throat by opposing a paper cur
rency? such as we now have?if the
tables should become, reversed.
?So it is not absolutely to the money
issue, which was raised in Ohio, that
wo are to trace the defeat of the North
ern Democrats. The two parties
split upon another rock.
In the first place, the leading Re
publicans are not altogether satisfied
that Southern sentiment has become
sufiicieiitly reconciled to the recon
struction of the .South, to w . riant them
in turning over the legislation of the
country to their old antagonists in
arms and politics. They desire, this
problem thoroughly settled first.
They don't want simply a promise
that the laic rebellious States intend;
to remain true in tlu-ir allegiance lb
the Hag of tho Union; they demand
more. They demand that the whole
.South shall give strong and tangible
proof of its fidelity to the Government
of the Vnited States, and a gurhhty
that its Legislatures,-when they shall
have lullen entirely inlo the hands of
tho Democracy, will not disgrace their
Statute hooks with oppressive and
class Legislation; they demand Lliat
our fire-eating editors and stump
speakers, shall cease with their
vituperative abuse of every man that
hails here from the North; who docs
not fawn upon and cringe1 to I hem;
they demand that a native New Kug
lander shall have as much right to
enjoy a home here, if lie pays,lbr it'
and behaves himself, as a German,
Frenchman or Scotchman; they de
mand that the humblest of our citi
zens shall have the unchallenged
right to enjoy and express their poll- l
tical opinions, and to exercise their
right of franchise as scetneth best to
them. These arc [some of the salient
questions which the lenders of North
ern uentimcnt desire to see established
on a permanent basis, preparatory to
leaving us to ourselves. It rvould
have been far better for us if they had
been settled long ago. Had such
been the case, a better feeling
would pervade this country to
day, and the great heart of the Re -
public would have been throbbing
with joy over a united und happy
people. Rut instead of this, we have a
divided country, and as Northern
voters are not to bo caught with chaff,
it is beyond tho ken of prediction to
say when the two opposing sections
will become reconciled to each other.
A large number of the Republican
leaders at the North are of opinion
that such men as Preston, Tod tubs, and
Gary reflect really the sentiments of
educated Southern society, and that
it would be dangerous, by a passive
policy on llioir part, to nllow the
Democracy to assume the authority
It appears that tho cautious and
guarded utterances of such men as
Gordon rnd Lnniar, have not quite
convinced the Northern people that
the South is a.paradise for Republi
cans, or any one else who desires to
come here IVoui abroad. And yet it
seems that the nets of these two dis
tinguished representatives of the
Democracy, conform very nearly to
their published expressions, Rut des
pite this, l* res ton's speech is regarded
as the true index to Southern senti
ment. They think thai Gordon and
Lamar partake too Iarg? ly of the latter
day politician, to disclose their real
feelings. It is their policy to profess
a sincere loyally to the Government,
with the hope to persuade their politi
cal opponents that their constituents
are also equally as loyal. Iliit the
antipathy and insane hatred which a
number of Southern blunder busses
have manifested against the South
taking any part in (ho Centennial of
next year, have served to put the
North on its guard, and it is quite
probable that the words of l'rcston
will hereafter have mop weight
again.11 us away from home, than all
the speeches of Gordon and l.nmar
will have for bur good.
It is not greenbacks, nor is il hard
money, that divides tho country.
These issues (all into comparative in
i ignific inee. v. hen compared with tho
greatur one which bus for its aim the
preservation of our Republican, insti
tutions. So far as wo are concerned,
wo would 'to God there, wore but one
