h1i pwivate business derands his at

not conceive why he should lay aside
the toga while several yeara yet remaini.

Dual State Governments.
M'- *Joseph W. Barnwell delivered a
few evenings 'go before the South
Carolnia H istorical Society in Charles
-toni, a very instructive an( interesting
address on Dual State Governments in
South Carolina. le showed that
thrice it tihe history of this State her
ctizlens have bccn called upon to
cioose bet ween rival governments,
and lit each time tile will of tihe pCo
ple triumphed. Tihe first issue wras
in 1719, the second in 1775 and the
third in 1876, so that though the
Ilainptoni-Chiamberlain was a new
tlhing to the present generation, It was
in. reality but ainother instannc. of his
tory reen)Oting itself.
Carolina wias granted by Charles II.
ait it reward for fidelity to his enn0se to
eiglt of his adherents, the Duke of
Albemairlc, Lords Clrcndoiln, Craven,
Ashley and Berkeley, Sir George
Carterbit, Sir William Nerkeley and
Sir John Colleton. These began the
work 4f settlitig the territory in order
to turnrtheir speculation to account.
A model constitution, prepared by
Lord Shaflesbury ' and the philosopher
Loeke, was sent over, but its provis
ions were entirely too Utopian to suit
tihe practical minds of tine settlers.
The whole systei with its "'seignory.','
ite "baronys," its "precineta' and its
"colonys," its electoral and judicial
colleges, Its eight supreme courts, be
fore which it was to be a "base and
vile thing to plead for money and re
ward," was abandoned after four unn
succesqsful attempts to engraft It on the
ai. Even the seductive titles of
"Lanndgravc" and "Cacique," which
could be puirchased at a stipulated
price, were despised.
For fitly years the colony wias ruled
by teuporary regulations, subject to the
caprice of tihe proprietors. These ap
pointed a governor and a council, or
senate, and the people chose a coin
mons-house of assembly. Tihe pro
p~rictors were constantly chaungin1g.
When the charter was extinguished it,
was vested ini twvo peers, the son of a
pneer, a baronet, a Carolinnian, a bar
rister trustee for another barrister,
three trusteces for an adult and an in-.
faint, while tine eighth share was in
chnancery. Enless quarrels arose over
quitrents anid other matters, unitil the
peole becamle dissatisfied and dis
gusted. Finally poverty and misfor
tune were added to misgovernmenit
and tihe burden became unbearable.
Tihe proprieto)rs had1( debarred tihe dis
senters, wino nunmbered two-thirds of
tine populaition, from participnating in
tihe governmnlent, they hand takeni away
lands fronm p~urchlasers without re
funding tine pulrchase money, and had
ap~poinlted inompetent lmn to ofilce.
Tine Clomny was bur'dened with debts
incurred in Indian wars, and a Spnanish
fleet was thnreanteninng Chnarleston. '[he
pr'oprietors refused to allow a tax to
pay this debt, and they refused to
open~ election precincts over tihe State,
t'ts comipelling everybody to vote in
iiCarlestoni, ando dissolved an assembly
*that had been elected thnroulghout the
*1 ~ Colony. 'Then they took fromn tine as
semibly tine appointment of oflicials
paid b~y tine peop)le1, upheld Chief Jus
tiee Trott in huis exactions, and en
larged tine coneil.
Thnen tine peop~le resolved to rid
N *lhemselves of the proprietors. Thney
elected a new assembly, whnich dleclar

In 1765 the native Judges, Robert

South Carolina again had a dual

Statidity of the Witness-Catight in Incon
stateneles--The M1issing Links--The Note
of Wrnning Traeed to 11im.
From the New York Herald. May 16.
A niot altogether unhooked for sur
prise now followed-the reappearance
of Whiittaker as witness. Every eve
was turned upon the young colored
cadet, as in his full gray uniform-to
borrow ani expression nrom the prize
ring vocabulary-lhe came up smiling
to the scratch. That perfect self-pos
session, unabashed confidence and
coolness of manner cbo racterizing his
demeanor when first called as a wit
ness, still manifested itself. Physically
his general appearance has greatly im
proved from what it was at the open
ing sessions of the court--eyes bright
er, complexioni clearer and his hair,
then disfigured by haggling cuts, nowv
neatly' parted in the centre. Whitta
ker did not quaver in the least or
show the least token of niervousness or
intimnidation. H~e stated, in answer
to the pireliminary questions, that be
fore ho came to West Point he knew
the kind of treatment extended here to
colored cadets and nlilly appreciated
what would be his status on becominag
a student ini the Academy. Hie did(
expect physically ill treatment, but
was not devilled or hazed even by the
colored cadet Flipper.
After further examination a htter
was produced. It proved to be a let
ter written on the 7th of last April by
Whittaker to a colored f'iend in Newv
York, named Western. This letter,
covering several pages, was read by
W hittakor, and In substance was main,
ly a re petition of his account of the
alleged outrage committed on himself
as published ini the papers of that date.
He was interrogated at considerable
length as to reconciling the Inconsist
eney of some of thie statements ini this
hotter and his subsequent testimony,
anid particularly his stating in the ldt
ter that three cadets comimitted the
outrage and describing thme severity of
his injuriies and in his testimony aver
ing that lhe had no reasoni to suspect
cadets and his telingV Mr. Mitchell that
his injuries were only slight. His an

Q. you still stick to your state- te
ment, continued the Rec'order, that ti,
vou did :ot see the anonimous note it
befbre von say you found It, and that tr
you did not write it ? A. I do, sir. is
Q. I low' then, do you account for w
the fact that of over three hundred a<
papers three out of five experienced i
experts have picked out your hand- u
writing as the writer of that note of b
warmaaig, and these five len all have tl]
testifled positively that you wrote the a,
note yourself? A. That the note was A
forged and that it is aan initation of p,
my writing. o,
CANNOT ACCOUNT FOil IT. tc
Q. How do you account for the fhct
that exports have by microscopical ex
amination and that'others besglcs ex- a
ports can see the fact that the paper a
upon which that was written was torn
fromn paper upona which your owna
writing was found? A. I cannaot ac
count for it, and I do not know that
they do, sir.
Tile course of (lae cross-examination,
as will be seen, was drawiing Whitta
ker more ad more tight ly into the
toils. One by one caie out strong
facts against hiim, aimior facts ili their
sceuing Ilasigniicance, but all point
ing to te same climax-,his guilt. As
these were brought to light thaeie was
nto shadow of colacerin or cimotionl visi
ble in that youang an( mobile face, but tc
now as immobile and unchanging as fv
granite. Sone thought they saw a tr
diflorence when the Recorder began j,
to read those portions of the reports -j
of the experts previously withheld
from publicity, but if theae was any
it was only momentary. As the pre
viously withheld portiols of the rt.
ports of the flive experts-Gayler,
Patine, 11ogan, Ames and Southwort.hi C(
-were read there caie one by one the
answers to file pireviously perplexiig
questions, "Who is No. 8?" "Who is
No. 23?" aind so on through the vari
ous numbers hit upon as tle author
of the anonymous note. It had been
previously intimated that Whittaker
was thae one retbrred to each case, as
shown in (lhe questions put to hii
abovc; but these reports were eagerly
listened to as atrording further aid in
A STAIITLING DISCOVERY.
Of all these reports, the one, pe
haps, most interesting was that of m i.
Southworl. Ifit did notshow the truth
that "mu.rder will out," it did shaow a
