Cio U~ii1, May 19.-The noveity
of the new order of thing existing at
the capital has somowhat passed
aw\'ay, ared i matters are runnig
along as smoothly as it the Demo
crats had always been in pow\ er.
All departments aro busy, for much
work is required and the time is;
short. Theo Legislature has already
been in session longer than was con
templated, and the time for its ad
joulinmnent is notyot fixed. A week or
two moro will doubtless be cOnsui
ed before the members return to the
bosoms of their respective constitu
encies. Several important quos..
tions havo been settled during thel
week just expiring. On Tluesday~
the election for chief justice result -
ed, as is known, in a victory for
Willard. His eloction to the high
est judicial office in the State is at
tributable Solely to the inflence of
Governor Hv Ipton, and both in the
canvass preceding tlie vote, and
even since tlen, a colsi(eralle
amiount of bitterness was evolved. I
There -were mnanly good reasons why
Judge Willard should have been
elected, and as many why he should
CHITF JUSTICE WILLAI)
camie to South Carolina at the end
of the war on the staff of (4eneral
Sickles, and was hdiulgo advocate on
miost of the miitatry commissions
held in Charlestoui for two years
trfter the war. le first come into
general notice in ti. o well known
trial of Koys and Byrom of Ander
sou, for fle alleged murder of some
Fedoral s;>ldiers near that place.
This case he prosecuted vigorously.
He had prpviously attained distine
tion at the New York bar. He
married a daughter of Zephaniah
Platt, who was the first judge-of the
Charleston circuit after recois true
tion. (By the way, Colonel Pnrnmelo,
superintendent of tho penitentiary,
married a fister of Mrs. Willard.)
Judge Willa'rd was placed upon the
supromo bedch at the first election,
and has served there continuously
to the present time. -Ie was
formerly a devoted friend of Chain..
borlain, but was alienated by the
falsehoods the latter prpotrated
upon the people. During the whole
trying periol through which the
State passed, Judge Willavd f'mly
maintained the dignity of the Stato
courts, and Lis decisions were of
great inf nlance in securing to
Governor Hampton undispqted
possession of the gubernatorial
chair Judge Willard has over re
frained entirely from politics, and
for this reason has emerged from
the era of reconstruetion with a
respctab~le record. lie is a mani of
ability, and is at devoted admirer of
thme noew codO of proceduro. These
circumstamnces consti tuto his claimi
to the oilice. Another argument in
his favor was a dlesire oln the part
of Governor Hamp1ton toq carry out
his broad policy, andl ho believed
that the selection of Judge Willard
to this high office woudld rodound to
the advantage of the Stato by
eliciting favorable public sontiment
throughiqut the Union. So, when
Judlge Mfoses diedl, Govern or Hamp
toln aninounced his intention to ap
point W~illard to the vacancy, but
being notified by Mr. Willard that
an election by the Legislature was
necessary, the Governor p~ressod
his olgimns before thme General
'Assomb~ly. Heodid not demnand the
eleption of Willard, but signified
that such a measut:0 was in his
opin ion necessary to tho succes~s of
A serious opposition to WVillard
wyas developed at the outset. iganly
personls held that the pripei pios of
'Matraight-out" Domacracy forbid
the election of a 1(epublican to
ofice. Blesides, they afllrmed, with
ont fear of contradiction, that there
aro anany natives of South Carolina
betr fitted for the office, and they
claimned that the State rhould honor
oun of her own soins. Moreover
'Jgdge Willard's mannnyl~\ onl the
bench is often dictatorial aind un
plasant, and this was urged against
him. F'or some time the result o!f
the election was in doubt. But
General Gary nmado a bitter attack
on Willard in the Senate, and in
some way the insue aa changed
from a choice of p&Ofrn into, aqe
tion of "admninistatioxi' (r "inti
administration," As soon as it wvas
thought that thie success of Gover
nor H-amnton dlenended on the an
lection of his candidate, Will-'d
gained strength. The Democrats
agroocl to caucus, and on Monday
night the caucus was in session till
near day break. Willard finally
received the nomination by a vote of
forty--one to thirty-nine. Ir. L. 1).
Bryan, of Horry, refused to
,uter the cancus. On Tuesday,
as is known, Willard received overy
Democratic vote savO those of Gary
and Bryan, while the Radicals, who,
since they are hol)elossly in the mi
nority, have suddenly evinced a great
love of decency, almost unaniiotusly
supporte d Gen. Sami. McGowan. It
must not be imagined from this that
General McGowan took any stock
in this Radical effort to break the
Democratic phalanx. It was rather
a hard ease, however. But for the
caucus, General McGowan would
have received tlhirty-eight Deno
era Lie votes, besides thoso the Radi
cais gave him. But it was neces
sary to preserve party unity, and the
fight hialng been made against the
a imiistrationl, it was necessary to
sacrifice a noble South Carolinian
for the good of the party.
AN UNPLEASANT FEATURE
of the whole natter is the bad feel
ing displayed by many Denocratq
who voted for Willard. That they
took a nauseous pill may be ac
1inowledge.l, but that is no reasoru
wI by they should show the symptokus
Of nause nublicly for several days
after, in speccos in the H opiso on
matters by no means gernle3 to
tho judical election. It is in bad
taste after having voted for a man
for mucmbers tq intiun:Lte that the
honor of the State was sacrificed.
The position occupied by General
Gary is much better than that of
thouse members who osten -ibly sup
ported the administratiQn anid yet
are continuully snarling about it.
The speat of
made vacant by Willard's elevation,
has been filled very acceptably by
the unanious election of Col
Henry McIvor, of Cheraw, a lawyer
of great alility, and, a gentleman of
great personal merit. Col. A. C.
Haskell1 was a prominent candidate
before the caucus, but it is said that
the election of Willard, whom he, in
support of Hanpton, advocated,
contributed largely to his defeat.
The anti -Willardjites who voted for
him ii defe.:once to Hampton sad the
caucus, demanded a recompense in
the choice of their candidate for
associate justice, and gained their
point,. Justico McIver wil add
great dignity to the bench.
is still in undisputed possenfion of
his his seat. The committeco
preferred charges against him for
drunkenness, but a vote of two
thirds of all the 'wnyanbers elected is
necessary for impeaclunent, and this
cannot be obtained. So the im
peachment sleops for the present,
though Wright will pass the remain
de,r of his term with the unpleasant
consciousness that the sword of
Tlamocles is continually hanging over
Seven trustees have been elected for
tho University1 andl they are to devise
somiie means of making the inst.itu
tion a success. It will be opened at
somo future time, but wvhen, and
under what form, is not known. The
present rotten concern has beenj
uncoremnonioumsly smashed by a
olnission to make any appropriation
for it. Th~le professors, and the
studlen ts who havo heroto-s
fore received $200 a year apiecce, are
na fearful state of mind, but they
get no consolation.
For the pulhic schools the sum
of $200,000, inclusive of poll tax,
has been appropriatod. IUder this,
undoss tho lawy be changed, Fairfield
will be entitled to $3,500 for schools
from October, 187G, to October of
the' present year. Superintendent
Thommpson hopes to ppexn the
schools in July' but the approp~ria
Lion will last only a short time.
The local school tax is killed for
thme puresent ard1 will probably not be
revived with the present ILogislature.
Thoro is no wyay, at present, of Iup
plomncnting th~o State app ropriation.
THLE AMENDMENT TO 'TNE coNRTITU'1ION
passed last November, providing
(or a twvo mill tax to be retained in
the county, has been ratifiqd in the
Senate, but the Honse has not con
sidered it yet. Some opposition to
thp measure has arisen, partly be,.
cause of the bad odor generally into
which the schlools hayo, fallen', but
principally because the amount is to
b~e fixed -by the constitution, andl
not to vary. It is urged that wi- 4
I return to prosperity the property
in the State will be so enhanced in
value that two mills will raise an
exorbitant amount. The adoptiou
of the amendnonts is of vital import
anco to Fairfield, becausp by tho
prosent la\v she has annually paid out.
$8,000 for schools, and rocoived only
$3,000 back. The amendment would
secure to her the whole anleunt.
THE PUBLIO D1'WP.
The chiof discusion of the past
weck has boon regarding the pay
mont of interest on the pr blio debt.
The Legislature is much < vided on
the subject, some desiring total ro
pudiation ; others, an appropriation
for intorest which is not to bo paid
until a commission lyis decided the
genmioness of a bon@i'and 4thors, a
postponoment of an appropriation
till the validity of tke dollt shall
have boon first establiqhed. it will
be remembered that several years
5n1c, the Legislature repudiated th
Conversion Bonds and the Blue
Ridge Scrip, and funded the balance
of the debt at fifty conts on the
dollar, nyakiig the coupons of those
consolidat ed bonds receivable for
taxes. There are now about $4,
000,000 in bonds already' consolida
tod, and perhaps a million more to
be thus fundod. The discussion
lasted several dlaH and evoked con
siderable feeling. It was at last
resolved to appropriate $270,O00,000
to meet this interest ; and to apv
point a cominissionA tq investigato,
THE I4EN LAW.
The -louse has passed ail act to
repeal the lien law on and after thio
1st. Jamary, 1878. The Senate has,
not yet considered it, and the result
is iu4 doubt. As a substituto, it in
proposed to rovivo thno qidl law pro,
viding for distr;ss for refit, so that
the land owner may bo protpcted.
As he ha11s had a liars time fqr the
past ,en years, the Legislaturo be
lieves it. is time to givo him a chance.
The fence law has not yet come
uip. It will probably pass in the
shape of a locil dption law, by
which each co;nty or township will
be allowed to vote 0 the mejasy~rp.
A townslip or county that yotes
"no fence," will have to build a linq
fence all around its limit and erect
gates on the higllways. This is the
method adopted ii North Cgrplina
and im other States.
Gen. W. A. Walker, of Chester, has
been sworn in and is now in the
Senate. No objection was made to
his election. Ho makes the six-.
toenth Democrat. There ire now
seventeen Republicans, but Whitte
more Eis off, on a lQavo of absence
which it is believed Will be perpe
tual, and this gives Lieutenant
Governor Simpson the casting
vote. All branches of the govern
ment are now in t4 q hands of the
Messrs. H. A. Gaillard and
Thomas S. Briep wcor sworn in as,

With the Legislature in sessionA
night and day, and all the depart..
ments at work, Columbia is a busy
place. Eivery one who wishes to fool
renewed in strength and spirit,
should visit the capital. It is well
worth the trouble and exp~ense.

limb of a tree, in the flower yard oft

hive of bees had settled, fell from
