Let the "Devil" be executed and the

SouE of our contemporaries, among
them the Abboville Press and Banner,
are still claiming that the decision of
the Supreme Court in Aultman, Tay
lnr & Co. vs. Rush was contrary to the
provisions of the Constitution, etc.
It is very easy to say that anything is
unconstitutional, to show it is quite
another thing. Just as a speimen of a
legal argument from the press, we
invite our contemporary to the task of
showing the exact particular in which
the decision in question overrides the
A WVIise luggetion.
The Columbia Register is urging the
the importance of removing the ob
structions in the Congaree River be
tween Granby and Columbia to the
end, that steamship navigation may be
made possible between Charleston and
Columbia. The river) we believe, is
already navigoble from Charleston up
as high as Granby, three miles below
Columbia. Above Granby there are
some obstructions which it is known,
can be very easily removed. It is cer
tainly to be wished that the saggestion
of the Register be adopted and the
obstructions in the river at once re

TIhe Hion. Jefferson Davis, in his
recent speech at Meridian, Miss., said:
But now those scenes and incidents
have passed, and they only live in
mind and history. United you are
now, and if the Uniion is ever to be
broken, let the other side break it.
The army of the South will shine for

The Philadelphia .News says:
The strength of mind, the mental
courage required to enable Jeff Davis
to say to his people, "the truth we
fought for shall not encourage you
ever to fight again," demands cordial
recognition. For the first time in
nearly thirty years the North can well
afford to put aside resentment and to

For a long time, whatever else
failed, the venerable bloody shirt
shakers, like Senator IIoar, could fall
back upon Jeff Davis and Bob Toombs
and say that they were just as bad
rebels as ever they were. 13ut Toombs
is dead, and now Davis has become
reconelled. There is nothing to cling
to, and llorace Greeley's memorable
prediction may be said to be fulfilled:
'Your attempt to base a great, endur

For nearly a quarter of a century
the partisan spirits of the North have
labored to make Mr. Davis the scape

The day was propitious, and notwitl
standing the busy season an unusuall
large and appreciative number o
patrons and friends of the school wer
on the grounds. We do not wish t
appear personal in our remarks, bu
we think it due bore to notice th
presenco of our jovial, generous-hearl

Dr. John Boyd. The Doctor evince
a deep interest in the educational de
partment of the county, and is eve
ready to grace any occasion with hi
p:osence when duty requires it, o
pleasure affords him an opportunity t
do or say a good thing for the commo:
schools of the county. The hour fo
commencing the exercisee of the da
having arrived, the assembly bell wa
rung, and about twenty-five brig
eyed children assembled, and headei
by their accomplished teacher, MrF
Richmond, proceeded to the stage
which was erected under the spreadinj
branches of a majestic oak. Th
stage was beautifilly. decorated.. an
festooned with evergreens and filoweri
and surmounted by a column wit
the word "May" in evergreens acros
the top of it. Mrs. Richmond boin
somewhat indisposed, Mr. W. a
Keller was requested to" assist in th
duties of the hour. The task was
pleasant one and , duly performed
In o.der that those -interested in th
