IIn vlew of' thle recenit app)oin1rtit
of a coluiasli to codify the laws of.
the State under an act of the last Log
1lature, a brief review of the statute
laws of South Carolina will not be In
aJpropiiate at the present tine.
The statute law of South Carolina
hegins with the year 1682. From that
tie umntil 1736, the haws appenred Ili
pamphlets. as they were promulgated
by the 4overnor and Council or by the
General Assemit ly. In the latter year,
Chief Justice Trolt collected and pub
lished a small edition of the laws then
of force. About the year 1790, Judge
(rinke collected andt(] published such
of the laws as were thenl of force, with
the fiLles of all obsolete or repealed
icts. In 1811 Julge Brevard collected
1111d (1digested a nIew edition of the
statute laws then of force, known it
Brevard's Digest. It was rather a
manual Or index, than a compilation
The first authorized and systematic
compilation of the laws of the State
was commenced by Thomas Cooper,
LL. D., under a joint resolution of the
General Assembly, in December, 1834,
di recti ng the Governor (Hon. George
McDufiie) "to employ some11 fit and
competent. person to compile under his
direction the statute law of this State."
This work was ably and Intelligently
performed, and, with the index, was
enibraced in ten volumes designated
as the "Statutes at Large." Up to
1872, this collection was accepted as
authority, and was in general use by
the bench and bar. In 1858 the As
sembly provided for the selection, by
the Court of Errors, of three Contunis
sioners to revise and codifr the statute
law then of force in this Siate. At the
next session, in December, 1859, the
Assembly adopted a substitute for the
former act, roviding for the annual
election by joint ballot, of a cominns
sioner to prepare "such a code of stat
ute law, as if enacted, might, in con
nection with the portions of the con
mon law that would be left unaltered,
constitute the whole body of law in
this State." That distinguished jurist,
Hon. James L. Pettigru, was selected
as the Commissioner. under this act,
and up to the thne o' his death, about
1862, had made some progress with
the work. Only parts of It were
completed under his supervision, and
these, although published as his re
port, had hardly come into general
use bv the bar.
The Constitution of 1863, Art. V.,
See. 3, required the General Assembly
at its first session, and everv ten vears
thereafter, to "make provision to re
vise, digest and arrange, under prop
er heads, the bo(y of our laws. civil
and11 criminal, and form a penal code
founded on prinuciples of ret'ormation."
D. T. Corbin, W. J. Whipper and C.
W. Mton tgomerv were elected hv the
Assetibly mn 186O, in compliance' with
an act, to cairry out the above pro
vision. In 1870, they reported the
Code o' Civil Procedu're, which was
ado pted, and in February, 1872, the
A' vsiebl adopted their Ielor't Onl the
reVvision of the statute laws, embraced
in one volume, anmd designated as the
hevised Statutes of South Carolina."
Mr. Corbin did most if not all of the
work for this conmnission, and it, was

At thle conclusion of Mr. Bute'

from thle little he had heard of the

"A certain Ni igl)o man kept a drug

as well as the retail one. Ile therefore
bought a warehouse for storing drugs
and put it in charge of a nephew. hIis
ventuire proved eminently successfitl,
and he grew richer daily, principally
for the extraordinarv reason that the
drugs stored in the * warehouse were
less liable to get damp or mtouldy thain
anybody else's. As the nephew was
at Work in the Warehoue he used con
stantly to uotice the prettiest girl he
had ever seen passing by the door.
Though he sorely longel to try to
inake'acquaintmance with her, lie ' was
restrained by her modest and retiring
demeanor. Time went by, and one
day an old gentleman n'ith a long
beiAd anid leaning on a statf called at
the uncle's shop. In1 the course of
conversationi it appeared that he came
from the borders ot Snensi and Kansu
and had originally fled to Pekii to es
cape flrom the Mahomnetan disturbances
in th West. Finally he said that he
had often remarked the nephew at
work in the warehouse and had been
struck by his steadiness and diligence
and lie would like to marry his only
daughter to him. lie hall sitlitemilt

about terms. The young man. being

therefore, gladly accepted the propos
"As both partieQ were strangers in
Pekin everything was settled and the
marriage ceremony performed without
any U1necessarv fuss or formalitv.
When the time came for the bride to
