When the homestead law has been

TUa trial of Herr Moqt, t.he anarch
ist, which is now pending in New
York, is in some respects remarkable.
His offenso is that he has talked too
much, and a judge site gravely listen
ing to witnesses testify as to whether
the defendant commenced his address
with "fellow-citizens" or "brother
anarchists," and there is something
more than a question of etiquette in
volved in the inquiry for Herr Most.
TH E Legislature ought to so amend
the law, that hereafter no such mur
derer as Jones, of Edgefleld, can be
bailed, pending appeal from a convic
tion for manslaughter. Such miscar
riages of justice as we havo had in
this caso are the fruitful causes of
lynch law. Jones's crime was one of
unparalleled atrocity; to contemplate
him walking around in his unrighteous
immunity from punishment is just
about enough to make law-abiding in
ao1naeo Icn1 monn.

even by those "good intentions" which
have been used to pave a warmer
place than this. It is hoped that they
have learned something. The editors
of the Constitution, including the
brilliant Henry W. Grady, arise from
the dirty suffile looking, as mean as
Esau must have looked after selling
his birthright for a mess of pottage.
Such is prohibition.
Porter Wimby, the negro who was
convicted at the lost term of Court of
complicity in the Air Line robberies,
was sentenced by Judge Aldrich to
ten years in the penitentiary. Cald
well, the only white man convicted of
connection with the robberies, is now
sentenced by Judge Pressley to two
years' imprisonment. The evidence
in both oases was substantially the
same-Greenville Cor. NYews and
This looks bad. It may bo assumed
that the white man has enjoyed advan
tages of education that have been
altogether denied to the negro, and he
is hence without oven the excuse
which one naturally feels inclined to
make for ignorance. If then any dif
ference should have been made it
would seem that it ought to have been
-in the darkey's favor. But we have
no idea that any discrimination "on
account of race color or previous con
of servitude" was intended. The fact
is our Circuit Judges seem never to
have agreed on any standard whatever
by which to guide discretion in pass
ing judgment on criminals. The
whim of the moment controls, and
consequently an indigestible broakfast
or a drink of "mean whiskey" costs
the jioor devil in the dock years of
hard labor in the Penitentiary. It may
not be so; the Judges ought to try and
agree on some plan that would insure
at least a measure of uniformity. In
stead of studying up political harangues
for the grand juries they might with
more profit be attending to their legiti
Our Eduentlonal System.
Gen. Bratton ha an able and charac
- teristic article in the News and Courier
of the 29th, on our educational system.
The subject is thoroughly and system
atically reviewed; the origin and
growth of our present system of high
er education is exhaustively traced,
and its advantages carefully set forth.
Goe Bratton opposes the proposition
to tear up this system or to abandon it,
and deplores the tendency now plain

Mr. Samuel F. Nicely_ of Pendle

his train by a projecting water tank
pipe at Six-and-Twenty on last Satur
day morning and death immediately
ensued. Mr. Nicely was attempting
to adjust the brakes for a slowing up
of his train to cross the trestle imme

violently struck by the monster pipe
and .hurled between the rolling cars.
His body was mangled almost beyond
recognition. Tio pipe had not boen
1)ulld up as high as it should have
been, hence the fearful accident. He
was a brother to Engineer B. F.

while shifting at Groenwood on last
