The Election of Chief Justice.
From the Journal of' Commerce wo
clip the following intelligent account
of tho election of Judge Willard to
the Supreme Bench:
Columbia, S. C, May 15.?The
caucus last night, as previously an
nounced, resulted in the nomination
of Judge "Willard, he having at about
half-past three o'clock received forty -
one votes. Twenty-three ballots were
heid, and this morning when the.
news was made public there was con
siderable excitement, There were
many rumors of iutended bolts, and
the Radicals, all of wdiom oppose
Willard, were keeping up their cour
age by offering to bet that ho would
be defeated. Long before one o'clock
the hall cf the House was crowded to
its utmost capacity, a large number
of ladies being present.
At one o'clock, the Senate, headed
by Lieutenant-Governor Simpson,
entered the hall. The Senators were
given scats in front of the Speaker's
and the Lieutenant-Governor calling
the joint assembly to order, had read
the resolution calling for the joint
assembly, to elect a Chief Justice, to
fill the vacancy caused b)T the death
of Chief Justice Moses.
Green, of Beaufort, asked if the
election was to fill the unexpircd
torru, or to fill the full term of six
The President replied that that
was a question which each member
must answer for himself.
Nominations were then called for.
Mr. Orr, of Anderson, nominated
A. J. Willard. It was, he said, not
necessary to make a long speech.
Mr. Willard had filled the position
of Associate Justice with honor and
dignity, and he was satisfiedihat if
he was promoted to the Chief Justice
ship he would still continue to honor
the position, and serve the State with
Andrews, colored, of Sumter, nomi
nated Hon. W. D. Porter.
Mr. Meyers, colored, of Beaufort,
seconded the nomination of Mr. Wil
lard, which nomination, he said,
would demonstrate the fact that the
people of South Carolina were, will
ing to recognize the worth of, and
that he, for one, was r.ot disposed to
turn Iiis back upon a man who,
though not a native, was still identi
fied with the interests of the State.
A pause ensued, and no other
nominations having been made, the
joint assembly proceeded to ballot.
The vote was taken viva voce, the
clerk of the Senate first calling the

Washington, D. C, May 12,1877.
To Uov. Wade JJ<i))ij)tuii :
1 am informed by tho Attorney
General that he has instructed the
District Attorney for South Carolina
to prepare for trial only three indict
ments in the Ellenton cases', and to
notify the parties in all other cases
that they need not prepare for trial.
It is possible thatbnl) one case will
be tried. The fact that the indict
ments were found by the grand jury,
composed of both political parties,
seems to justify the assumption that
the prosecutions are not partisan. I
agree with you that a general amnesty
should extend to all political offenses
except I hose which are of the gravest

Culture of Peanuts.
The cultivation of "the peanut is
extending very rapidly in the South -
crn States. The plant is tropical and
largely cultivated in hot countries j
for food. An oil is expressed from
the nuts said to be in no way inferior 1
to that of olives. The cultivation of 1
the peanut is not profitable north of ,
Virginia, a warm, light and moderate
soil being ricc333ary. Plant in March
and April, according to the latitude.
The rows should ha ihren iind a hol 1
icct apart, bills Iwo feet apart; Drjp
two to four-pads in each hill. Cover
two inches deep, and when the plants
appear thin out, leaving two in each
bill. Keep the. ground mellow an I
the plants free from weeds. Use a
light cultivator for this work and hoe i
around the bills occasionally until the
plants bloom. A tablcspo ihfub of
plaster dropped on each bill two or
three times during the season will
give good results. When the plains
bloom freely bill up slightly and they
will need no further cultivation The
earlier the plants get started the
larger the yield, which varies from
twenty-five to seventy live bushels
per acre. Gather the crop before the
frost actually kills the vines. A com
mon tree digger is the best imple
ment for raising the vines and nuts.
Spread out to dry for a day or two,
then put up in small stacks, with the
bottom layer resting on something to
keep out the dirt. Put on caps of
straw to prevent the pods from be
coming blackened, LA the vines
remain in the stack ten days or two
weeks, when the nuts may be picked
by baud or threshed off by machine.
To Preparo Squash for Pies.
The following method is well sui
ted to the liubbard and other hard
shelled, long-keeping squashes, and
is equally useful for preparing squash
for the table : My plan is Lo saw a
squash in half, clean out the seeds;
etc., then place op's'ii end down in a
pan containing an inch or so of|
boiling water, placing small slips of
wood or thick wire underneath them
so that the edge will not burn on tho
pan. Let it steam until thoroughly
tender. The flesh of the squash is
then easily scraped out with a spoon,
and run through a colander, if
thought desirable, though it. is not
necessary, there being no hard lumps
in it. By this plan none of the
aroma of the squash is lost, while it
greatly reduces the labor of prepara
tion. Another plan is to take the
two halves after cleaning from seeds,
etc., join them together and biud
firmly with twine, and place in the
oven to bake until tender. There is
little, if any difference in the result,
but I give the preference to the first
method us being much the easiest.

Tiii? Mudicink of ? Sunshine.?
The word wants * more sunshine in
its disposition, in its business in its
theology. For ten thousands of the
aches and pains and irritation of men
and women we recommend sunshine.
It soothes better than morphine. It
stimulates belter than champagne.
It is the best plaster for a wound.
The good Samaritan poured out into
the fallen traveller's gash more of
this than wine and oil. Florence
rsightinsral? used it on Criuisan bat
tlefields. Take il into all tho alleys
on board of nd the ships, and by all
sick beds. Not a pliiallull, but a
soul full. It is good for Kpleon, for
liver complain*, for neuralgia, for
rheumatism, for falling fortunes, for
melancholy. Wo suspect thai hea
ven itself is only more sunshine.
How to Succkhd.?If your scat
is hard to sit upon, stand up. ;Jf a
rock rises up before you, roll it away
or climb over it. If you want money,
earn it. It takes longer to skin an
elephant than a mouse, but the skin
is worth something; If you want
confidence, pro'e yourself worthy of
it. lie not content with doing what
?nother has done?surpass it. Do
serve success, and it will come. The
boy was not born a man. The suit
does not rise like a rocket, or go
down like a bullet fired fronragun;
slowly and su rely il makes its rounds,
and never tires. It is as easy to be
a leader as a wheel horse. If the job
be long, the pay will be greater; if
the task be hard, the mote competent
you must be lo do it.
Ninety persons out of every hun
dred who set out fruit trees for home
use or market indulge in leb many
varieties. This one fatal error has
j ruined more fruit-growers than all
j other causes combined. Nursery
men propagate their hundreds and
thousands of sorts, simply because a
majority of their customers do not
know what they want and will not
take the'advice of men who do; Th
prevailing passion with the novice in
fruit culture is to try as many varie
ties as possible, and we have known
men who had "'just begun," and with
very little capital, to go into a nur
sery and undertake, tc make a short
purse go a long way. by purchasing
a tree or two of each variety, instead
of acting the wiser part, .selecting

about the barnyard is an evidence of
a careful pains-taking farmci?and
only such can moke anything now-a

most thai thrives best, but il is those
who save the most, of what they do

saving all that can economically and
