TIE Iarolftn Spartan had a *very
sensible editorital last week which we
have republished, advising our people,
and espeelilly our youig men, to study
political economy and tho theorr of
government. Without loslair time
from their regular vocations they may
learn to reason intelligently, and know
why they belong to their lrty. In
this coneti"on it Is well to add that
a Society for Poli4eil Educationl has
been formed by such mnci as David A.
Wells, Professor Suner, Horace
White, Charles Francis Adams, with
many other leading indeptident hink
ers of both arties. This soulety pre
scribeq a eaurso of reading for all who
become netmtbers, b paying a tfo of
ftifty Cents and pledging 01mtt.selves 14o

orlganlization of this society is i enpitil

the South, especially if ie be collnect

aspirations, should at. least. inqnire
Into this soclety. Iiiirnirmaiioni can be
had from R. 1- Dugdile, Secretary of
the Society for Political Education,
New York City. The books for this
year's course are four il -utnber, aid

Congress Is dobig nothing. The
House io at -a deadlock on a rule for
counting the electoral vote. It is a
Senate resolution, and provides that, a
vote shall be counted unless both
houses agree to reject it. The old Re
publican rule of 1872 provided that a
vote should be rejected unless both
houses agree to count it, and was
manifestly Iniquitous. Although such
men as Conkling and Morton in the
past had taken stronggrounds in favor
of the proposed rule, the Houpe Radi
cals have resolved in caucus now to
oppose It to the last extremity. Robe
son, Grant's secretary of the navy,
who squandered a hundred million
dollars it is said fraudulently, is the
head of the stalwarts and advances the
proposiden abandoned in 1877, even
by Republicans, that the President of
the Senate alone has the power to
count the votes, and that the two
houses have only to sit down with
their fingers in their months, and let
him have his sweet way. As usual
abont twenty Democrats are absent
from their seats and a quorum cannot
be secured when Republicans refuse to
vote. As no one diputes the I.slt
of the recent election it is easily seen
that the Radleals are only contending

House has reported a substitute for all,
which will p. obably pass. It imposes
a license foe of oner hundred dollars to

The dueling bill was called up- in
the Senate and recommitted, for the
* purpose of ascertaining whether the
oath required to be imposed upon
officials be not unconstitutional. The
inevitable debate over the salaries of
officers anmd clerks took place in. the

Anderson, began by moving to reduce
the salaries by from one hundred to
two hundred dollars, so as to make

On Sunday last, the 5th iistant, Mr.
Thos. Kennedy, living near Salem, inl.
tending to visit Charleston, went over
to his father's house a little after noon,
a short distance from his own, to ask
his mother to stay with witfe during
