The State Board of Examiners.
The new school law adopted at
the recent session of the Legisla
ture practically abolished the
unwieldly State Board of Educa
tion, which consisted of all the
county school commissioners, and
instead provided for the appoint
ment of a State Board of Examiners,
consisting of the Superintendent of
Education and four others, invest
ing this board with the fullest
powers in the management of
school affairs. This board appoints
two examiners for each county, who
with the school commissioner com
pose the County Board, thus abol
ishing the old law which made the
school commissioner solo arbiior of
e3hool matters in his county. It
was found necessary to provide this
check on account of the number of
worthless and irresponsible com
missioners elected in some of the
counties. The State Board itself
will shape the system in the State
and a good board cannot fail to be
of incalculable service.
The governor has appointed the
following-named gentlemen, who
will doubtless be acceptable to the
Senate: Rev. J. E. Dunla p, of
Marion; Hon. Charles Petty, of
Spartanburg; Hon. J. S. Murray, of
Anderson, and Prof. Henry P.
Archer, of Charleston. Superin
tendent of Education Thompson
will be ea officio chairman.
Mr. Dunlap is well known. Be
sides his other qualifications he has
filled two terms as county school
commissioner. Mr. Petty is the
principal of the school at Limestone
Springs, and was chairman of the
educational committee of the last
House. Mr. Murray, if we mistake
not, was nominated for State
Superintendent of Education in
1872 on the Tomlinson ticket. He
is a prominent citizen of Anderson.
Mr. Archer is the principal of the
public school in Charleston, and an
educator of great experience and
ability. The zeal and singular suc
cess of Superintendent Thompson in
reducing order out of chaos in his
department need no encomnium here.
If the board co- operate with him
heartily, abill greater improvement
Cardozo has been discharged on

Small, is also at large on bail, and

of ill health. Several months ago
these three men were tried, convict

people supposed that this wvas but
the beginning of a general overhaul
ing of Radical rascals :and not a few
of the "Bourbons" dreamed of see
ing their pet abominations in a short
time comfortably ensconced in the
penitentiary. But they were born
to disappointment. The prosecu
tions have apparently ceased, and
the criminal court of Richland again
devotes undivided attention to the
punishment of hog thieves and
drunken brawlers. The three un
fortunates who fell victims to justice
are now at large, robbed of their
good names, it is true, but as these
were but trash before, their loss is
not irreparable. The last, unkindlest
out of all is inflicted by Cass Carpen..
ter,- who, released on the represen
tations of a tearful wife that he wvas
at the point of death, has sufficient
ly rallied, on reaching the pure at~.
mosphere of his native North, to
revile the people of South Carolina,
and to aver with fervor that no
Republican can get justice in this
State. If Carpenter is a specimen
ease, we rat'er agree with him.
Since the ele mency of the governor
has thus been repaid by this Radical
Ingrate, the best rejoinder would be
a second requisition for the arrest
of Carpenter on some of his other
When parties, however, proposo this
course, they are met with the answer
that amnesty is the order of the day,
and that the prosecution of ku-klux
and "moonshiners" in the United
States tribunals, and of Radical
thieves in the Stato courts, are alike
to cease. True, the saving clause is
added that there is to be no com
promise with the heads of the con
spiracy. But, in dealing with such
a hydra as Radicalism was, who can
point out the heads ? No one of
at least twenty leaders was more
outrageous than the rest. So, in
the dilemma thus presented, all seem
likely to escape. Patterson, who is
covered all over with moral leprosy, as
with a garment, holds the balance of
power in the United States Senate.
Chamberlain, of whose guilt Senator
Cochran boasted that he had un
doubted proof, is still serving the
blind goddess, justice, in the courts
of New York. Kimpton fires into
the South Carolina Democracy at
long taw from the Thousand Iles of
Canada. Scott puts out his money
at usury to the unwary grangers of
Ohio. Parker, after passing the
rigors of winter at the hospitable
board of Sheriff Dent, is now tend.
ing his soap pots in Now Jersey.
Mr. R. B, Elliott defends criminals
with all his pristine eloquence bu
fore the Richland court. Other
honorable gentlemen are enjoying

Frank Moses-but that poor boy
always was unfortunate. For an in
nocent man ho has had more bad
luck than even the historic
Murad. As Speaker of the House
he stole about half a million. As
governor ho squandered about as
much more. And yet, after making
two hemispheres stand aghast at his
profligacy, ho escaped punishment
for all this, only to be lugged into
court for a pitiful steal of three
hundred dollars, or thereabouts.
The charge is that he forged Wood.
ruff's name to a check. In better
days Frank could have simulated
Joe's chirography without fear,
though thousands were involved.
But Mr. Woodruff is now a reputa
ble citizen of South Carolina, and
resents such liberties. So Frank has
been brought to Charleston and is
in jail on that charge. It is another
case of Goliath and the pebble,
Sisera and the nail.
There is one loophole loft for
Moses. Woodruff is now a private
citizen and a taxpayer. In robbing
a citizen and a taxpayer, Frank
wvas but~ carrying out the instinets
of a Radical leader. His was, there
fore, a political offence. And beiag
such, he should claim immunity and
amnesty. Whether lie has sunk so
low that his plea will not avail him
is a question. But it is worth try
ing, at least.
In the meantime, some people
want to know where amnesty begins
and where it ends.
TO TIrE PUiLrC.
The impression seems to have
obtained some foot-hold in Winns
bore that.I am connected with the
local management "of THE NEws AND
HERALD, and I have been taken to
task for some squibs" appearing in
its local columns. I now desire to
say that I have no connection whaf,
ever with the THiE NEws AND HERALD;
and it would be entirely unnecessary
for me or any other outsider to as
sume any responsibility for the
original matter published in this
paper, as the gentlemen who con -
duct it are abundantly able to take
care of themselves, and do not shirk
any responsibility for what they say
in either the editorial or local do
partmnent of their paper.
T. RL. RODERTsON.
AN OBvrous TaUTJH.-Me believe
that it is hazarding nothing to say
that no manm in the history of South
Carolina has ever enjoyed greater
popularity than Governor Hampton
does to-day. In more respects
than one his position is anomalouns.
However paradoxical it may appear.
it, is nevertheless true, that to abuse
him would be to make him, if possi.
ble, more popular t han ever ; and if
he has enemies, those enemies would
do wvell to let him soverely alone.-.
THE NEW CAROLrINA.
The Beneficial Effects of tho Southern
"Galh" in the Philakidphia Times.
The traveler in South Carolina,
though he be the most radical of
men for citizen rights, can see
nothing but "hat is admirable in
that gentle revolution achieved by
Hayes atd Hampton.
Two years ago one needed pro
tection from both races-now from
neither. Industry and protection
lr"e rege.ne rated together ; there are
no longer to be seen loafers of
either race. It is almost to beo
regretted that Georgia could notj
also have entered the Union under
sonic such compromise and showed
a like wisdom and tolerance. Relief,
occupation, cordiality, order and
the sense of American nationality
once more are conveyed by nearly
every face in South Carolina. This
is seen in the awakened curiosity of
the people. Old men on the cars
asked me with chlaritable interest
about Blaine, Conkling, Grant and
Ednunds. Where there is curiosity
there is life. Torpid is that
land where nanv questions are not
asked. Said one person, t Presby
terian clergyman, of Conkling:
"I read his speech in favor of an
electoral triaunal. It elevated him
very high in my mind. But whei
I saw that lie wante I to kick the
commission over and quarrel with
its verdict because it wouldn't
somehow help his ambition, I
thought, what a pity !"
"How do you mean a pity'?"
"Why, a pity that ho couldn't
rest on having done a wise thing.
He just stripped himself naked, as
it were, and showed us his sore."
Jim Blaine alppeared -o be re
garded in the South as a kind of
Tony Pastor or Jim Crow-funny,
but of no moral consequence.
Nobody had ever heard of Tim
Howe and an idea was abroad that
there were several thoisand
Camnerons and that the prineipal
one was sickly and the next ono in
love. There is a wide difference in
temllperainot and talk between the
South Carolinian and Georgian
the former listens and reflects, gel
erally without interrupt.ing the
reciter ; the latter is better fed and
more1- Voluptuous, spontanlcouls and
volatile. I think the South Caro
linians will again become the most
popular typo of Southerners.
JEFF. DAVIS OX TIL E LATE POPE.
The Cleveland, Ohio, Catholic
Universe, quotes from a personal
letter to its editor from Jefferson
Davis, the following tribute to
"I grieve with you over the
dcceaise of the great and nobly-goodi
Pio Nine. Inl conimnon with all who
honor true piety, that wvhich begets
universal charity, I feel the loss
wvhich the Christian world has sans

common cause for mourning. You

otherwise learn, for it wams as

while Carl Schurz is hardly equali

TOTAL ABSTINENCE S;INU WINE TILL IT
There is a curious story about some native
wines which arc extensively advertised nowa
days, and have only recently been put upon
the market. Dr. Underhill, the well-known
,rape-grower of Croton Point, died in 187r.
.omne of his heirs entertained temperance
views of such extreme kind, that they were
unwilling to allow the stock of wines then on
hand to be sohl or any more to be made.
The grapes have sometimes been sent to
market, and sometimes left to decay upon
the vines. It i only now that the other heirs
have succeeded iit arranging for a set tlenient
of the estate and the sale of the wines on
hand. Among these is a wine of the vintage
of 186.1, described as a "Sweet Union Port,"
htI nggesting the Imperial Tokay more
than any other Ituropean wine, and being
wholly unlike any other wine of American
growih. It purity, age and mellowness are
renmarkab,l at both phy:,icians and wine
fancier.; have a speciil interest in it as the
olde'.t n1ati8 e Xu ine now accessihle in any con
sidertble quaititv. The whole stock is in the
h,nds of the well-known wholesale grocery
house of the Thurbers.-N. Y. Triouue,
Nei. 19, 1S77.
The above speaks for itself, but we would
add (hat this is the pure juice of the grape,
neither drra,;, d, /iqore nor watered; that it
has been ripened and mellowed by age, and
for melicinal or sacramental purposes it is
unsurpassed. It can be obtained from most
of the leading Druggists throughout the
United States, and at wholesale from the
undersigned, who wiii forward descriptive
pamphlet, free of charge, on application.
