A typographical error in one of
our last oditorialt inado us Hay the
"(amnfation of alionn," when it
should havo boon the "(dnnitfi1tion
of aliens." Not that the first ex
prossion is not appropriate, but wo
prefer to use a morn pious phrase.
Anna Dickinson essayed a few 1
nights since, in Now York, to not t
the principal role in her now play of l
"The Crown of Thorns," and now, y
through the instrunentulity of the f
dramatic critics, she is reposing on I
anything but a bed of roses. Thei
play and the acting are pronounced a
to have boon both far below medi
The Loxiiana Commission, as
was expected, is doing nothing but
accumulating a mass of conflicting
testimony. The sooner it adjourns
afap die tho bettor for the country.
It is noodloss to dally' any longer "t
with Packard. Ho cannot govern
Louisiana. Why Mr. Hayes does
not at once withdraw from him the
support of the military is incompro.
Some wisoacro in Washington
thought he had (liscovered ia mare's
most. ie assorted that Chamborlain
had adoptod a new course, which was
to claim that no one was elected gov
,rnor in Novembor, and that ho hold
over. As Chamberlain had urged
this plea over since the ponitentiary
pardon case it could scarcely be
called a now departure.
On the 9th of April, 1805, with
the surrender of General Leo at
Appomattox, constitutional govern
mont perished in South Carolina,
and a military despotism was inau
gurated in its stead. On the 10th
of April, 1877, with the removal of
the troops from the State Capitol,
military despotism ceased and con
stitutional liberty again reared its
head. The first was the conso
quoneo of an appeal to arms, the j
mieconi the result of a strict adho- t
xonoo to pence. What the sword t
could not accomplish, the pon has
achieved. '"Peace has her victories ,a
mnoro renowvned than War." r
One of the Ii rzt acts of' thme Login -i
lature, wvhen it assembles, should be
-the ratificationi of the-amcndment to
the tionstitution adopted by the
poolo last November, providing
that each county retain all the
chool-money collected in it under
the two mill tax, instead of ro
eiv1mg, as atprosent, only portion in I
thme ratio of its scholastic population<
.to that of the entire State. Fair
fiold .przys amually about $8,000
school tax, while, under thle una..
mnded clause, it 'receives back
only about $2,500. The ratification
of the amendment would be worth
just $5,500 to The schools of' this
vounty, and would secure a success.. 1

It's just a little funny for Cham
orlain to address Governor Hamup
on as "Hon. Wade Hampton," and
o sign himself "Governor of South
iarolina ;" and it is quite as cheeky
a it is amusing. Bu't everybody
Las become accusbomed to the ear

iimself thus really does no harm,
adi may be a comfort to him in his

oarnostly against the action of the
now administration in making terms
with the chief of the Ku Klux in
4tigator of the Hamburg massacre,
M. 0. Butler ; and still more earn
estly do wO protest against the
official recognition by the adninis
tration of that arch-enemy of the
republic, who long sinco ought to
have been hung for treason, Wado
Hampton, of South Carolina, and
who now, by threats and intimida
tion under the very roof of -tho
