Little ..yi0iam. Stone is rolling
back and forth between the, Senate
and the Presidents. As a. rolling
Stone is . commonly reported as
"gathering no moas," it is to- be
hoped that he will not "feather his
nest" with the District Attorneyship.
Ben Hill, it is said, is advocating
the appointment of Foster Blodgett

loft that State a few years ago with
an unsavory odor clinging to his

has in advocating him is not known
here ; but Ben is a sly fox and
must be desirous of "loading" the
new administration. If all repprts
are true, Blodgett would indeed be
Postmaster General Key has writ
ten a letter to Senator Merrimon, of
North Carolina, stating that where
vacancies occur in the mail service
in the' South, Republicans will have
the preference ; but that where no
fit persons of 'that faith can be
found, then the Democrats will re.
ceive consideration. The same old
story. It is to be hoped, however,
that Mr. Key will be somewhat more
fastidious than his radical predecos'
Mr. Hayes wants time. He does
not appear to have so decided a
policy by far as was claimed for
him before his inauguration. The
path of duty is not near so easy
to pursue as he he thought, and Mr.
Hayes halts, before obstacles. He
informed so 11 gentlemen who inter
torviewed him that he deemed the
filling of vacancies a matter of more
importance than the settlement of
the Soutar Carolina and Louisiana
disputes, and that the former must
first be disposed of. This is rather
a remarkable --,view to entertain, to
say the least of it. Postmasters and
collectors should be made to wait.
"Preserving the Status Quo."
By a grim piece of irony, the gar
risoning of the State House is called
"preserving the status quo." It is
not a maintenance of ne utrality,
but an active interposition in behalf
of Chamberlain. To be sti ictly im
partial, the troops should
prevent Chamberlain from entering
the State House as well as excluding
the rightful executive, Governor
Hampton. What guarantee have'
the people of South Carolina that
i' the Radical usurpers of the offices
iui the State H ouse are preserving
the archives of the Commonwealth,
or that, when ordered to vacate,
they will not burn, mutilate or do
stroy themi The troops are merely
acting as obstructions to the lawful
- administration of government, not
as custodians of property. We be
lieve that while President Hayes is
bending his mighty intellect to the
solution of the problem, he should
at least turn the key in the lock of
the State House door and deposit it
in Col. Black's or Gen. Ruger's
* breeches pockdt until such time as
he decides who has the right to

Chamberlain, even if he were gov
ernor has not made proper applica,
tion for the military.
How would it do, in case Hayes
persists in continuing military occui
pation of the State House, for Gov-.
ernor Hampton to send some such
message to Washington as this:
COLUMBIA, S. C. J
"President Hayes, Washington, D. C.
DEAR Sin :--Tho people of South
Carolina wish their State House,
which is now used as an asylum for
vagrants and outlaws. I propose to
clean out the gang there and take
possession of it next week. I see a
few individuals:within the building
who wear your 'livery, and who may
belong to you. Perhaps it would
be better to have them sent for and
taken away, as they may get hurt,
if they remain there. Very respect
Governor South Carolina."
This might have the effect of re
manding the Oshkosh postmasters
and the Sweet cider committees to
the rear, so that President Hayes
could have an opportunity of re
flecting and discovering how ridicu..
lous a figure he presents with all
his high sotuidings protestations
and masterly inactivit. It begins
to appear that some decisive action
may be necessary to bring this farce
called the "status quo" to an end.
