TrE LAWYERS of Columbia have
unanimously resolved to give their
servie s free of cost to any party in
dicted for political offenses in the
United States Courts, on the ground
that It is the duty of the bar to protect
citizens from the encroachments upon
their rights under the guise of law.
This is patriotic conduct.
THE MURiEF of Judge Elliott, of
Kentucky, by a disappointed suitor,
Tom Buford, has been already pub
lished. Further accounts stamp it as
a terrible tragedy. After the adjourn
ment of court Judge Elliott. met this
suitor, and expressed sympathy .for I
him, whereupon lie was asked by him
to take a drink. The judge declined,
and moved 'on, but had scarcely passed
when the assassin, raising a shot-gun
to his shoulder, deliberately fired a
load into Judge Elliott's back, killing
him almost instantly. When Buford
saw he had succeeded, he came for
ward, put his hat under his victlin's
head and said, "Now die like a man."
le tJiei kissed the muzzle of his gun
and behaved like a lunatic.' It is said
that Buford once fired three shots at
his brbther, and .subsequently fought
with another man with pistols on a
fair ground wherq fifteen thousand
people were present. IIe was a dan
gerous mnan. Such being his record,
even insanity should not save him
from accounting for this bloody crime.
A Heterodox Opinion.
Sometimes the boot gets on the other
foot. It has been generally believed
that Federal supervisoi's are the
abomination of Democrats and the
delight of Itadicals. Yet here' coins
United States 'Marshal Kerus, of the
eastern district of Pennsylvania, and
testifies before the Wallace-Teller
Committee that at the last election in
Philadelphia, supervisors were ap
pointed at the special request of the
Democrats, and that no Rlepublicans
asked for them. The explanation of
this is fbund in another part of. his
testimony that Phifadel phfia, with her
hundred arid fifty thousand votes, is
entirely under Republican rule. The
whole police force of twelve hundred
is Itepublican. Two-thirds of the
election districts have Republican
majorities on the election'boards, and.
In November the witness appointed
seven ktijdre .. and seventy-three
deputy marshals, all Republican.. The
testimony of-Ma'rshal Kerus is of such
a character that we are not surprised
at the conclusjin ho reaches thiat
supervisors and marshals are n'ot
necessary in Philadelphia. From . his
standpoint we should say not.
'The BIaek Hegira.
One of the mnoi!t significant events
of the day is the singudar negro hegira
from the South. It is estimated that
between two and three thousand have
already gone up the Mississippi by
steamner to St. Louis, and the strange
exodus continues without dimninution.
They are bound for the West 'mostly
for Kansas. They are deaf to all well
meant advica to return to the South,
and evidently believe that any white
mian giving such advice is their enemy.
The movement Is a~ general surprise.
It was one that'apparently started

"Plain Hints to the South."
The following -editorial from the
Philadelphia Times, one of the .ablest
jou'nals Fin the Union, a representit
tive of honest, liberal sentiment, in the
North, and a foe to bloody-shirts arnd
stalwart Republicanism, is published
to give our readers a just conception
of how opiniion is moulded at the
North. It will be seen that the Times
deplorus the situation but deems it
necessary to state it. in its true colors.
We do not subscribe to the article in
niny points, but we give it1
that our readers tray judge the temper
of the bigoted No-. tht when the liberal
North entertains tnrese views. And
as sueces= in the North is absolutely
necessary for Democratic suprenacy
here, it would be well to consider care
fully the warning. The Times says:
The Wilmington (N. C.) Sun is
usually one of the most judicious of.,
the Southern journals, but it quite
misapprelhends the current of public
opiniot, especially in the North, when
it assumes that all Federal election
laws shoul be unconditionally re
pealed.' "' do not pause to liseuss
the constlit iut wind question that, seems
to be the Favorite plea against all
measures which grate harshly upon
the old Slate Rights notionls of the
South. The one answer to all such
argunents is, that there has been a
great war; that States Rights, as
taught by the South, perished in the
conflict, and that. from the arbitranme;,t
of the sword there is no appeal.
States Rill Its chose its own arbiter, and
the judgmetit is irreversible.
It is clesrly within the power of the
uation to protect the purity of its
fountain of authority. The farts that
power was grossly ibused in the revo
lutioul:y timaes, and that fraud
chieved its greatest victories under
the prctence of preventitng fraud, do.
not aflect the issue. They teach how
errors are to be 'corrected and how
arbitrary powers are to be revoked;
but they do not teach that Presidential
and Congressional elcetionis are to be
given over to trained ballot-stuflers in
Pihiladelphia and New York, or to
bull-dozers or adventurers in the
One Presidential election has been
perverted by sysntenat'e fi. ud, and
it is in tie power of Congress to pre
vent a repetition of so healless a wound
to free goverrnent. Mar-shalls are
not needed under any circumstances,
and it" authorized to interfere with
voters, the party that happens to be in
power will ever use them to hinder
the honest Vote of the opposition; but
supervisors fron both parties, ap
poitel by the courts, with power to
Aheck fraud by official scrutiny and
,ertain expos'e, are needed 'in half
f Ilhe Southern States andt in all the
leading cities of the North. Their
dLuties can be so defined that inter
rer'ence with honest electors would be
impossible, and they should be in
such close accord with the judicial
power as to make fraud face the "due
pricess of law" whenever. i attenpted
the pollution of the 41allot.
A word on another point in answer
to our respected North C'arolina con
temporary. The demagogues "whose
constaint cant is the 'Confederate
riradier','" ' have "the ear of tIre I 0)
pe''of threNorth. Th'ley have it, niot
b~ecause th e Northern people are at
war with the Southrern people, nor'
because the North does not dlesire to
cleal out generous justice to the South,
but because a fewn fools in the Southr
sonrstanrtly supp1ly the troops of
lemlagYoguies in tire North wvith
abund'ant material with whlichr to assail
the whole Southern section of the
Union. lPlls speech ini reply to
Blaine in the House in 1876, and
Lamar's speech1 ini reply to Ulainre in
