The judge of the first circuit is a
broken Reed. Lot him take heed
lost ere long ho become a brnised
The prima donnas are having
trouble with their husbands. Ada
lina Patti is coming to Paris to ob..
tain a divorce from the Marquis of
Caux, while the Ba:ron Rhadon, who
has already been divorced from
Lucca, has instituted suit against
her to rceover half the receipts of
her Australian tour, made before the
divorce. Every rose has its thorn.
Associate Justice Wright is not
dead after all. He has turned up in
Washington, where, subsisting on
the salary he drew from Governor
Hampton, he, is stultifying himself
by advocating the pretensions of
Chamberlain. Some time since, we
intimated that Wright was a fool.
We did him injustice and beg par
don. He is simply a knave.
The Charleston Journal of Com
msrce does not evince good taste in
twitting The Newas and Courier
with the position it took in State
politics before the August Conven
tion, While the policy of the State
was debatable ground, The News
and Courier had a perfect right to
advance any cause it deemed best
for the people, and the arguments it
used were accepted by a very large
minority, both in the upper and the
lower country. When the State
Convention announced a policy,
The News and Courier, in common
\vith the entire minority, espoused
the cause of Hampton, and pursued
its course unswervingly. No one
has a right to go behind the August
Convention now Let the Journal
of Connerce find some other point
of attack against its contemporary.
When it thus twits The News and
r r Courier, it casts a slur upon every
one of the thousands of Democrats
who at that time opposed the
straight-out policy, but subsequent
ly gave it their hearty and earnest
The bitter attack made by the
Nw8 aWnCourier upon Ex-Govers
hor Scott and Judge Mackey, wl.o
recently laid the claim of Governor
Hampton before Hayes, is in our
opinion uncalled for. Governor
Hampton assorts that his govern,
nuent is sup~ported by all classes of
I. ~ citizens and both p~olitical parties
and this is the more believed in the
North, when in addition to General
Kershaw and Colonel Rlion, who are
Democrats, ex- Governor Scott and
Judge Mackey bear testimony to the
fact. A purely Democratic delega
tion would give strength to the
argument that Hampton is merely
the governor of a party3 and not of
the entire State, Nor do we concur
with our contemplorary that ex
Governor Scott and Judge Mackey
'I exhibited effrontery in waiting upon
Hayes. Whatever may be their past
n record, they are now in full accord
with Governor Hampton, and have
been of service to the cause. Judge
Mackey was one of the erst Repub,
He canvassed his circuit for Hamp
ton ; and was of great service in
checking the aggressions of U. S.
Marshal Canton in Chester on the
day of election. He has used the
full powers of his court to sustain
4 the Constitutional Government, and
in no other circuit has the Chamber
lain sham been so effectually sup-.
pressed. Judge Reeds course should
fully demonstrate to Charleston,
jane the groat influenee a judge
can exert for good or for evil in the
(I present crisis. Ex Governor Scott
-voted for Hamptoni, and prevailed
on his laborers to vote 'with him.
He has abandoned politics, .and is
lumbia. His testimony will have its
weight in Washington.
We are not the apologists or the
y champions of any man, but we bold
that to -every one should .be accorded
and Judge Mackey speak in behalf
of the Republicans who voted for
It is a puzzling question whether
Judge Reed of the Charleston cir
cuit expects any one to be pleased
with the shuffling course ho has
pursued in the cases brought before
him to decide the gubernatorial
question. All the other judges ox
cept Wiggin, whom Chamberlain
himself pronounced a inore leaf on
the e irren, have grapped with the
problem, and decided it in accord,
ance with their ideas of law.
Those who had not originally enter
tained it themselves, promptly acM
cepted the decision of the Supreme.
Court in the Tilda Norris case.
But Judge Rood has persistently
evaded the issue, until his wriggling
and squirming have made him an
object of general notice. If, as is
surmised, Judge Reed really in
olines towards Chamberlain, for
whom, in 1874, he turned his back
upon the whito people of the State,
let him evince his preference at
once. Tho people wish to know
who are the enemies of law and
order ; and they have less contempt
for those who openly espouse the
wrong than those who secretly abet
it, yet fear to take an decided step,
lest it be towards the losing side.
If Judge Reed intends to act as be
comes a citizen and a Judge, lot him
no longer resort to evasions, but at
once check the whisper of suspicion.
The decency of the city of
Charleston and of the State prc
vented Whipper from tossing Judge
Reed out of one of the court-house
windows last year. It is his impera
tive duty now to screen the decency
of Charleston from the insults of
Bowen and his rabble. If ho fears
to perform this duty, let himi resign.
He has exhausted the patience of
the people. Let him define his
position at onco.
