TEII>; News and Courier is engaged
in a heated controversy with the
Abbeville iMedium and the Anderson
papers upon the subject of the public
debt and the phosphates.
Tiu; SaNAT'rE on Tuesday by a vote
of yeas twenty-flive, nays thirty-six,
reftsed to take up (lie resolution de
claring D. T. Corbin entitled to the
seat as Senator from South Carolina
In the place of General Butler.
Messrs. Cameron, of Pennsylvania,
Conover, Matthews and Patterson
voted with the Democrats in the
negative. This decides the case in
WASINGTON'S Ba Irn DAY was cele
brated with great colat in Charleston.
A magnificent military display occu
pied the day, while the evening was
passed in hearing an address by Maj.
II. S. Thompson before the Citadel
graduates, and by the presentation to
Dr. Grange Si8tons of a hamdsome
jewel in recognition of his services in
the yellow fever epidemics in Savan
nah and Memphis. The Greenville
Guards, and Adjutant General Hll of
Massachusetts, were anonug the guests
of the occasion.
Bring Them Back.
The News and Couricr says that.
Governor Simpson is constant.ly in
receipt of letters from South Caroli
na's emigrants to other States, ex
pressing their sad disappointmen t and
imploring aid to return to their old
homes. Governor Simpson ('an (1
nothing for them himself', and the
State is losing the use of strong hands
and willing hearts. In the general
discussion of immigration it has been
proposed that. much greater good
would result from bringing back to
South Carolina her own children who
have strayed oil, than in importing
strangers who know nothing of our
ways and methods of work, and may
fnd it hard to become aflilliated. This
is a capital suggestion. Besides
bringing new muscle into the Slate
great advantage would result in turn
ing the returned prodigals into ar'gn
ments against the prevalent idea that
other States, notably Texas, are better
p)laces to find work in thani South
Carolina. Those brought back, h av
lng once tasted the dead sea fruit of
emigration, will go energetically to
work to improve their condition here,
feeling that home is the best place.
The Legislature should seriously con
sider this umatter. If nothing else can
be (done, arrangements cani at least be
maude to secure immigrants' tickets.
Let us bring them all back.
The Chief Justiceship.
Some of the opponients of the Con
solidation bonds either directly or in
directly say that. they will be0 careful
to elect as chief just ice sonmc lawyer
who opposes the Consol idaftion settle
ment. T1hie position thecy take is
somewhat obscure onm many points,
but the gist is that the chilet' just.ice
must be chosen for a purpose--not
because of general lit ness for the othiee,
but to miake a certain dlecisioni. This
Is gettinug on prletty far. The Supreme
Court in the course of six years will
have hundreds of p,oinmts ar'gued be
fore It, many of the greatest import
ance, and yet only one0 p)oint is to be
considered in selecting an occupjanmt
of the bench. A lawyer miay be
wronig on ninety-nine p)oints iand yet
be right on one. That doees not 'fit
him for judge. A notable instance of
choosing judges for a purpos)0e is
given in Grant's appointment to the
Supreme Bench of judges who would
decide according to his views about
the legal tender act, lie foisted upon
the country Joe Bradley, of Eight-to
Seven memory. We want, no Joe
Biradley's oni our Supi'omno Bench.
We want able meni who ill (dec1(o
the law lrrespective of prejudice. We
want able men. And rIght huere let
us say wvith all modesty that we doubt
the ability of t hose lawyers who
argue that thme ConsolIdation scheme
Is not binding in law. Even Judge
Thomson, whose decision In the Bond
.Court gives so 'much joy to the oppo)
nenits of Consolidation, was too good
a lawvyer to base lis opIion on tIhe
genieral iss.u,e. Hie beat arounid thme
bush aund decided onily a minor p)oint,
dlstinctly declaring that lie would not
consider other issiues, which Issues, in
our opInion, wer'6' the pith of the
whole matter'. It is useless to slimng
niud at the b)ondlhders. These are
pecuniar'ily htitorested, and they are
going to wvork to. prove their case,
muid or no mud.
wishes to refuse to recognize the
fraudulent portion of the debt,. Does
the Intelligenccr meant that, it pro
poses to pay the an/te-ltccons/rutctioli
debt dollar fir dollar? If so we can
appleCiate its moti'es inl disowning
the tuncleanl thing. But if', With
Gleneral Gary as onb of the leaders of
the mnoveinent, it proposes to repudi
I ate all the I adical debt and one-half
of the unquestioned debt besides, we
cannot, agree with it. There are but
two logical courses to take. One is
payment of the Democratic debt,
dollar for dollar, and that alone: or
the acceptance of' the compromise cm
bracing all the Consolidation debt.
We will agree to either. We cannot
subscribe to any other plan.
The News and Courier puts square
ly a question we would like to see
answered. Will the opponents of
"fratd" obey and carry out the de
cision of the Supreme Court, what
ever it may be; or will they hold
themselves free either to receive or
reject it as it may or may not be in
accordance with their .. islhes? Until
this question is answ red there can be
no argument. Let the courts prevail
though the heaveis fall.
