LATEST ACCOUNTS from Washington
indicate an extra session as inevitable.
The two houses have disagreed on the
CoRBIN has caved. On Friday last
the Vico-President laid before the
Senate a communication from - the
would-be Senator, in which he an
nounces his withdrawal from- the
contest. Ie takes the recent action
of the Senate, in refusing to take up
his case, as an iudication that the
matter would not coimo up till the
next session of Congress, and that it
will therefore be useless for him to
continue the contest.
THE AnnEVI.LE 1Iedium says it
will not obey the decision of the
Supreme Court unless it be in accord
ance with law. It has been generally
supposed that it. is the peculiar busi
ness of the Supreme Court to decide
questions in accordance with law, and
of the people to obey them. What
other interpreter, or what superior
facilities for obtaining the law, the
.Medium has we cannot imagine. We
ask for more light.
TELLEn is not content with the
falsehoods of Republican witnesses,
but introduces into his report some
novel lies of his own. Among others
he says that t.isssue ballots were used inl
every county save one in South Caro
lina. The Nvews and Couricr says
they were sent to only ten counties
and that at least two of these did
nothing with them. The other lies
may be imag,ined. The report is
similar to that made by all Radicals
who have investigated the South since
PIESIm.:NT 1IAYEs has sent in his veto
of the Chinese bill. lie has heeded the
theorizers an( sentinmentalists of the
East, and ignored the unanimous voice
of the Pacific Coast. Such a course as
this brought on the late war, aid
California may yet give trouble. The
only thing that may provemit Soulherii
sympathy from extending to h1e1,, is
that she voted twice for Grant and once
for Hayes, both of wlhom were run by
a party that oppessed the whites of
the South, who were dealing witlh a
simiilar' problemi. Had there beeni a
hundred thousand Chinamien in Cali-.
fornia in 1860 the Union would have
GEORGIA is enhjOyinmg a rich cont.ro
v'ersy In which one otf the parties is
the wife of Parson Felton, Independ
ent Congressnman from thle seventhI
district. The camnpaign in Novemb er
was very heated. Senator Gor'don
stuimpinag thme district for thme organizedl
Democracy, amnd Mrs. Felton, w is
said to be an admirable lady, aiding hor'
husband muaterialhly. Rhecently' Mr.
A. Wm. iReese, a Georgia newspap)er
muan, charged in the papers that tihe
Rep)ublican national conmittec had(
been asked for funds for Feltoni. Mr.s.
Felton wrote a v'ery bitter and un
ladylike letter, denying thme charges
and asserting that Senator Gordon
was her real aCcuser. She says she
did write to Senator Ferry to make
the Georgia Republicans stop) aiding
Lester, tihe regular' nominee, but that
was all. Then she wcnt Onl amnd fired
hot shot into Gordon, In consequence
of his connection with the Book
Publishing Company and the South
er~n Life, intimating that he ought not
to be so sensitive about mioney mat
ters, and lastly she calls huni a Senai
torial blatherskite. This is a most
undlignified and unladylike p)rocedure.
If Parson Felton could not defend Is
wife's reputation, ghe shou]d treat tihe
matter with sildnt disdin. Of courRe
Senator Gordon can say nothing; and
nobody expects him to reply. Mrs.
Felton has hurt herself and iiher hus
band, and done nobody else any harm.
Admitting that she asked for no0
funds, lhen letter to Ferry shIows con
clusively wvhere Felton looked 1for
friends-in tihe Radical ranks. Geor
gia surp)rises everybody by senidinig
suich men to Congress--It matters not
how good Democrats they may be
whenI they get there.
No observer can have failed to
mark thme rapid str'ides by whichi the
United States Courts have beeni en
trenhiling upon the lawvs and rights of
the separate States..- Yet every stop
prepares thme way for a still more
fingrant invasion. Although Bond
and Settle and Woods anid others,
have gotten alone pretty far in their
new role., Rives, of Virginia, dis
tane8 them all. It will be remnem
beredi that htine' months ago lie re
juries altogether white. The novdl
plea was raised that. the law requires
a trial by one's peers, and that blacks
should have been on the jury. The
Virginia Legislature 1)romptly touh
the matter in halnd and ordered the
attorney-general to appeal to the
United States Conrt. Meantwhile,
Judge Iives, th.lirsting for imore blood,
has decided that the paluity of negro
jurors in the State Courts is an evi
dence of conspiracy against the
amendments on the part of those who
drew the juries. lie has therefore
procured the indictment ot five county
judges, on the charge of discriminatinlg
against color, and lie proposes to put
thelil inl jail, Suchi a high-handed
outrage was never heard of before.
The people of Virginia are justly
aroused. But. this is a matter not
I confined to the Old Dominion alone:
it afllects every State ill the Union. It
is not so much whether the amend
mnents are violated as whether' a
United States judge has the right to
drag State judges to trial whenever he
pleases. If so, the latter are but
dependents and adjuncts of the Fed
eral judiciary, lere lyrllidolls to do
the bidding of iasIers at the risk of
punishment. The liberties of a peo
ple rest with their courts. Evil is the
day when the latter become mere
eugines of oppression. State judges
in New York or Massachusetts or
Ohio can be dragged to trial if their
jlries ar"e composed of one ravice, for
both races are found in each of these
States. 'T'hat tlh'' are hot, molested is
simply because the Radical party is
afraid to practise its outrages in the
North. The South has no rights, and
This Federal interference is not re
ceiving the attention its gravity de
mands. A simunlltaneous protest
should be raised in every part of the
Union. If these enlcroacllien t, lado
one by one, and cautiously, are
acquiesced in, despotisil ill a short
while will have fixed itself too firnly
on the United States to be shaken ofi.
