The would-be assassin of Packard
ought to have remembered that a
thing to be Wel-don should be done
quickly. To point a pistol at i
man's head and then inquire calmly
"When can I see you," is to furnish

Mr. Hayes, if inaugurated, will go
into office loaded down with three
Returning Boards, and bearing a
title covered all over with fraud.
Ho will have a Herculean task be
fore him, to gain the respect of the
people. The Radicals depend upon
impudence to carry them through
the additional term they have
acquired by fraud.
Dr. T. C. Robertson has collected
in York county about five thousand
dollars for Governor Hampton ;
while ex-Treasurer Watson has
bagged only twelve dollars for
Chamberlain. Newberry has paid
over six thousand dollars to Gover
nor Hampton. In Barnwell county
eight hundred and five colored men
have paid taxes to Hampton.
Chamberlain's tax is still in
Elliott proposes to provO by E.
W. Ml. Mackey that Governor
Hampton was not a citizen of South
Carolina at the time of election
and was therefore not eligible. The
Radicals are in great straits if they
are compelled to rest their case on
any such ridiculous position as this.
Elliott might be more profitably
engaged in searching for witnesses
to prove that he is Attorney- Gener -
al and that Mackey is Speaker, or
still more so in packing up his
plunder preparatory to a final exit
from the State.
The quo tvarranto cases - are
dragging their slow length along in
the courts and seem no nearer a
conclusion than ever. The Supreme
Court would simplify matters great
ly if it gave a speedy decision on
some of the mooted points. Judge
Willard seems anxious to hurry up
the argument, and has reprimanded
Elliott and the other Radical
counsel for delay on s-veral ocea
sions. The Democrats have the law
and the facts with them, and the
sooner they are recogniZed the
better. The people do not propose
ever to 'recognize Chamberlain
Senator Sherman was in New York
on Wednesday. In an interview
with a reporter of the New York
Herald, after expressing his convic
tion that Hayes would be counted in
"South Carolina is by' the Demo
crats themselves admitted to have
returned the Hayes electors. It
does not matter how the vote be
counted Hayes must come in winner ;
if all the ballots which were cast be
counted, the Republicans will come
out with a majority of 700. Wa~de
Hfampton has8 beenl elected to the
This remark of yohn Sherman's is
significant. He represents the ex
treme wing of the Republican party,
and if he acquiesces in the election
of Eampton, then are Chamberlain's
chances desperate indeed.
The appetite of the Hayesites on
the Electoral Commission improves
, daily. Florida required a consids
erable sprinkling of pepper and
~mustard to make .it go dlown ; and
'Bradloy gagged percoptibly. Bunt
Louisiana was swvallowed on Satur-.
.day, horses, hoofs and all, without
'coremouy. Not a wrxy face wvas
made as the tough objections of the
:Democrats wvore gulped downi in
quiek sneqossion. .Testimony was
offered to prove that the Rieturning
Board was-illegal, that it had no
power to count the Electoral votes,
that it nover canvassed the election
retumnna, but merely aggregated the
nupervisors' returns, .that .afldavits
were forged, that reun were
altered, and that two of the Electora
wera ine1lihbl. The nepublica.
voted solidly to exclude all testimo
ny, and then scored Louisiana for
Hayes. They refused even to exam-.
ine into the ineligibility of the elec
tors, as they had examined in the
case of Florida, for the simple rea
son it offers that two Hayes electors
from Louisiana were ineligible,
whi'e none was in Florida. Oregon
is possibly counted for Hayes by
this time, as the Commission is
making indecent haste.

Governor Vance, of North Caroli
na, is in receipt of a letter from the
Secretary of War, demanding the
records of the office of the Adjutant
General of that State for the years
1861 to 1865, inclusive. Governor
Vance has replied, refusing to com
ply with the demand.
Mr. W. W. Corcoran, of Washing

spent $200,000 on the Corcoran
Gallery and the ground on which
it stands, aind $100,0000 on the origi
nal collection of pictures and statu
ary ; and for an endowment fund lie
has given 8'J000,000.
