POLITICAL PROSECUTIONS IN
The United States Court conven
ed in Columbia on Monday morn
ing, November the 26th, with
Judge Bryan, presiding. At this
term of the court the political tri
als will take place. District At
torney Melton made out a list of
the cases to be heard, and handed
it over to t hep Oposing counsel for
the defence. Only those that were
on the docket when the court met
lgst will be heard. Mr. Emory
Speer, the United States District
Attorney for the State of Ca., will
assist. Mr. Melton in the prosecu
tion, while J. P. K. Bryan, of
Charleston, and other shining
lights in the legal fraternity
from the same nfamed place and
Columbia, will, with combined ef
forts, assume the defence of those
in(licted. The sum of ten thousanid
dollars has been asked for by the
counsel of the accused,for the pur
pose of defendiiig them. The ac
tion taken with reference to these
cases will be watched with much
interest, and as yet it would be
hard to state what will probably
he the result. It seems thaf no
stone will be left unturned to se
cure conviction on the one hand
and to establish innocence on the
other. The accused should be
given a fair trial. There is no
dloubt but what their counsel wvill
-make (desperate efforts to acquit
themi. On the broceedings of the
court in this particular, we will
from time to time enlighten our
THlE STANDARD) TIE.
Trhe adoption of the Standard
Time will prove to b~e of great ben
efit to the travelling public. It is
being aldop)ted by all of the Rail
r'oadg of the country, and many of
the cities and towns lying along,
and at the terminus of the lines,
are falling in with them. TJhe time
was arranged mainly for' the com
mercial interest of the United States
In order that these interests might
be p~roperly cared for, the whole
of the United States was dlivided
into five meridians. In each of
these meridians the same time is
kept throughout its whole extent.
For instance, the mferidlian between
Maine and Charleston, under the
new arrangement is one and the
same. In consequence of which,
the two cities keep the same time.
Thue R ailroad t ime of Eusiny on
forms to this time, and so also
does Walhalla. South and West
of the meridian that passes
through this last named place there
is another time kept, which is
slower than ours. All those who
travel extensively on the Railroads
can see the great advantage in the
new schedule time, and every one
should take notice of it. For
scientific investigations, the local
time will be used ; also for court
shil) purposes, as one of our gal
hant young men says you can re
main a half hour longer with a
young lady. The clock at the de
pot at this place las been set for
ward thirty eight minutes. For
change of schedule see our 3rd
