Now THAT TIHE RILVEI BILL has be
come a law, the gold men are be
ginning to discover that its effects
will not be so vicious after all,
IRETURNINo BOARD ANDERSON'S chan
ces of receiving a pardon from Gov
ernor Nichols are very slim indeed.
Yet Hayes continues him in office as
Collector of the port of Now Orleans.
JAMES GORDON BENNETT, having
gained so much renown through
the labors of Stanley in Africa, is
preparing an expedition for the
North Pole. He has purchased the
ship Pandora for the purpose.
Some paper hopes that Pandora
will leave her box behind; but as the
authentic accounts are that nothing
but Hope is left in it, Mr. Bennett
could not do better than to send it
AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE on Tuesday
evening to organizo a Democratic
caucus, to n-ko a party settlement
of the public debt. The advocates
of the Consolidation Act refused to
enter the caucus, on tho ground
that the question is not political,
and that rules regiflating the caucus
do not apply. We fail to see how this
is a political question. Each mem
her should be allowed to vote ac
cording to the dictates of his own
A spontaneous call has arisen
from a large portion of the press of
the Stato for the re-election of
Governor Hampton. It is most
likely that the call will be nearly,
if not quite, unanimous, and will
correctly represont popular sent.:.
ment. Indeed, we do not see how
any other idda could be seriously
entertained by any large number of
voters. Governor Hampton was
the standard bearer in the cam
paign; and after the people had
borne him into offico, he, in turn,
was compelled for several months
to bear them upon his shoulders.
His great sagacity, wisdom and
equipoise during that trying crisis
raised both himself and the State
to the highest pinnacle in the esti
m'ation of the country. It is true
that Governor Hampton has not
pleased everybody, but such a feat
cannot be expected short of the
mnillenniial epoch. But he has ad
ministeredl affairs wisely and wvell,
and deserves the thanks of the
State. The people of South Caro
lina have so much fire and tow in
their composition that a temperate
restraint, such as Governor Hamp
ton has exercised, has produced
most salutary effects. No era of
violence and bloodshed, such as the
bloody-shirts prophesied, has suc
coeed the great upheaval of No
venmber, 1876. The Stato is peace
-not the peace of death. The
races are moving along quietly in
their respective grooves. The gov -
ernmon t is administered hiones tly
and teonomnically, and the people
are hopeful. The unanimous re
nomination of Governor Hamp iton
would be a verdiot of approval of
the status quo and an announce
ment that the present policy is to
It is said that Governor Hampton
does not wish t;o serve at second
term. He can be elected anyhow.
While we will not say that the
Democratic party cannot be con
solidated on any good man, wve
have no hesitancy in asserting that
it w~ill rally together more harmoni%
ously under Hamipton than under
any one else. With him out of the
way, at least a dozen gentlemen
would be pressed for the nomina.
tiona, no one of whom would possess
greater merit or greater claims
than the others, and a wvranglo
might ensue in the convention.
But the renomination of Governor
Hampton would ensure plain sail
We ,1o not appo- of f.lsm
laudation on the one hand, nor of
chronic grumbling on the other.
But it is proper to say that Gov
ernor Hampton has proven himself
a sagacious statesman and a wise
governor. For these reasons, we
demand his re-election.
THE STATE LEGISLATURE.
WEDNESDAY, March 6, 1878.
A large number of bills were read
a third time--most of which are of
a private or local nature. The Sen
ate then took up the report of the
Bond Commission. Mr. Myers,
Republican, spoke in favor of stand
ing by the Consolidation Act, and he
was followed by Mr. Livingston,
Democrat, who argued for the ad
justment of the debt as stated in
the report of the Bond Commission.
Mr. Taft, Republican, followed in a
long argument in favor of the Con.

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

and grounds submitted a statement
from the architect of the state
hotiso, Mr. Niernsee, and they intro

to the state-house, and recommend
ed that the bill pass.
Mr. Ferriter offered a resolution
cutting off debate on the bond
question and limiting each member
who speaks on this or any other
subject to thirty minutes. Ten
members objected to immediate con
sideration, and the resolution was
laid over under the rules.
The House then took up the bond
question. Mr. Andrews, colored
Republican, from Sumter, spoke in
favor of the Consolidation Act. At
the conclusion of his remarks, Gen.
B. H. Rutledge, of Charleston, de
livered an able speech on the same
sido. Gen. Y. J. Pope, of Newberry,
then spoke in favor of re-adjust
ment. His speech is said to have
been one of the finest yet delivered
on this question. Mr. Fickon, of
Charleston, closed the day's debate
n an argument in favor of the Con
TuRSDAY, March 7, 1878.
The joint resolution to appoint a
commission to codify the laws was
passed, with an amendment includ
ing all the laws of the State, instead
of statute laws, and also changing
the title of the bill.
The Senate bill to prevent the sale
of intoxicating liquors within three
milos of Blythewood Female Semi

seminaries and churches.

of public interest.
THE DEMOCRATIC CAUOUN
Just before the adjournment of
the House of Representatives yes
terday morning, Speaker Sheppard
said he had been requested to an
nounce that there wouk be a cau
cus of the Democratic members of
the Legislature at 4j o'clock in the
hall of the House of Reprosenta
In pursuance of 'that notification,
about eighty Senators and members
met at the hour stated, for the
purpose of considering proposi
tions lo oking to a result on matters
connected with the debt question,
which should harmonize the differ
ent factions of the Democracy who
are divided on this important issue.
Various speeches were avid-k looking
to an amicable adjustment of the
honest differences, but no important
agrt ement was entered into.
A committee, composed of four
Senators, two of whom are in favor
of the Consolidation Act and two
against it, and six members of the
House, equally divided between the
two parties, was appointed to
effect a settlement of the question
and make a report to the caucus.

of Potassium and Iron, and is the
mnost eflicacious medicine yet known
for the diseases it is intended to cure.
Its ingredients are so skilfully.
combined that the full alterative
effect of each is assured, and while
it is so mild as to be harmless even
to children, It is still so effectual as
to purge out from the system those
impurities and corruptions which
develop into loathsome disease.
The reputation it enjoys is derived
from its cures, and the confidence
which prominent phl.ysilcians all over
the country repose in it proves their
experience of its usefulness.
Certificates attesting its virtues
have accumulated, and are con
stantly being received, and as many.
of these cases are publicly known
they furnish convincing evidence oi
the superiority of this Sarsaparilla
over every other alterative medicine.
So generally Is its superiority to any
other medicine known that we need
do no more than to assure the public
that the best qualities it has ever
possessed are strictly maintained.
