Somenewspaper tuen in tito .state
have been very harsh in their <rttl
elstns on tho reeent decision ot* the
Nnprettie Court on thc question of
the married wont KU'S power to ex
ecute rt binding contract as surety
for her husband. Some havo be
comingly remained silent, others
linvo approved of tho decision.
Those who are most severe ia their
criticisms do not belong to that
profession In which only they eon ld
become schooled to be able to ex
press an opinion worthy of serious
consideration. Do they know
whereof they speak ? In any
event they do not speak rx cathe
dra, and therefore their dicta arc
binding on nobody.!/ The * dissent
ing opinion of Mr. Justice MCGOW
AN in the Hush ease is able anti co
gent, but the same might be said al
so of tlte opinion of Chief Justice
SIMPSON, concurred in by Mr. Jus
tice Mci VKU. Their opinion being
of a majority of the Court is there
fore binding as law* until rev or sed.
They havo ordered the case to be
re-argued at tito November Term,
butit is not likely that they will
change thou opinion, as the enseuf
Itusii was thoroughly and ably ar
gued before them and was duly con
sidered by the judges in the con
sultation room before thc decision
It ls not yet on record where any
of tho prosent Court "took buck
water" and completely reversed
their former opinion upon the same
state of facts. The decision in tito
Hush case might have been ex
pected since the decision in the
Jennie Agnew ease In which Mr.
Justice MCGOWAN filed a short dis
It is error in the press to say that
tho question came under thc prlnci*
plo of "communis error facit jus?'
The courts had not been in the hnb?
itof deciding the question that way
ns they had done in Davenport vs.
Caldwell. Titles had not vested in
property under the decision of tho
courts on thc question. But the
case was carried to thc Supreme
Court at tlie earliest opportunity,
and then speedily decided and pub
lished. We can't say that the law
yers of the up-country were gener
ally of tito opinion contrary to that
of tho majority of thc court. It
does not matter that some ot the
Circuit Judges are of the contrary
opinion. They are mere men and
their decissions arc no moro bind
ing generally than the opinion of
other lenrncd men in the profession.
A Circuit Judge recently flied a de
cree in a case on this very question
and in the beginning of his opinion
ho states that the question was be
fore thc Supreme Court, but when
ho filed his decree about thirty days
after the decision of tho Supreme
Court on the question and after it
had been published in tito newspa
pers and discussed freely by the
public, be made no mention of the
decission at all. It ?oems that he
wrote his decree before the decis
ion, and flied it several weeks af
terwards without changing it. It
is common sense that if tho note
which tito mortgage wns'givon to
secure he void in the beginning, the
mortgage,a mere security Incident
io the note, will also bo void.
Ho much is said in regard to
the law as it now stands and not in
regard to what it should be. We
ho! I eve that the law as it now
stands ls against, commercial faith
and credit, and against tho agricul
tural interests of tito State. The
legislature should amend the law
nt its .ext session. But a new pill
will not remedy tho old di -ease.
They must stand upon Ibo old law.
We do not believe that any ?good
woman In the state wonltl try to
cheat her husband's creditors out
of an honest debt ?by pleading such
a defense; hut it i.< her right and
commendable course to do so when
ShyloekH are dom Anding their bonds
with usurious interest on unju it
claims against the husband.
OUR FUTUIIK WKAI/TH.
It seems to be conceded that
nioet of the matorial wealth, inter
nal improvements, gold and silver
coins, stocks and bonds are to be
found in the Northern States and
that thc Southern Htatos aa a rule
aro wanting in these things. Sec
retary LAM AU has recently said
thot tho signs of prosperity at tito
South aro of a mushroom natur?,
ami are confined to tito railroad
cition arni towns. This, no? doub ,
Include* oar boloved state, Sbuth
Carolina. She, willie posessod ?f
virtue, .diaraetor and intelligence-,
Is Justly mini bored among the poor
states ortho Tulon. There ls very
?die mopey li. thc Mate outside td
tuc city of Charleston.
Tho great bulk of our peoplo aro
agriculturalists, ami agriculture is
tho pillar of support to all other
business and employment in this
state. Outside of agriculture there
are no great industrio? in this
state (hat lead to wealth. There
aro no coal, i rou, silver or gold
tn i noa that constitute any thihg like
? ft pwylug nud thrifty industry. The
j phosphate rocks in Charleston con
j stituto only a limited industry
compared to tho number of our
people. South Carotina lias only a
little over one lldddrod ami fifty
millions of taxable property, while
single indlutduals ut the North are
suid to own this much proderty nil
told. Tho little city of Hartford
Connecticut, is said to have in loans
upon real estate securities In th??
West, two hundred millions of dol
lars, a sum moro than tho whole
taxable property ot Mouth Carolina
as returned for taxation; The rice
and sea-island cotton itt South Car
olina have ceased to bo monopolies.
Wc say lt with reluctance yet We
believe truthfully that Sou Itt Caro
lina with agriculture as the only
industry can never become a Weal
thy state. If this supposition bo
true, are we content with our lot,
if not contented the question arises
where is tho remedy ?
If wo desire material wealth,
growth anil internal Improvements
what cottrsO must bo pursued to
achieve thc result ? We answer by
diversifying our industries. lilli
A rp some time ago let drop the
thought that while we aro all far
mers the business will bc at a low
ebb. Cotton is our great and our
unrivalled staple,- but we soy it
with this limitation, that it should
be only a surplus crop. In tho
second place that staplo as a sur
plus can and should bc manufactur
ed by us before thrown on the
mnrket. We have unrivalled wa
ter power necessary for running
the spindle and suitable operatives
for working the same.- Cotton fac
tories can bc made a success in
South Carolina. Statistics of mills
that have boon skillfully managed
proved the allegation. Then what
need havo wc for the eetablisb
of other manufactories? Every
farmer must needs havo a wagon,
and every family must needs have
a vehicle in order to ride to church.
There are thousand of these things
bought every year, but where are
they manufactured? Have we not
the material, have we not the skill
anti thc noee.ssory water power for
manufacturing the same right hen
in our midst? Our county ls boan
tifnl) healthful anti pleasant and
with these diversified Industries ea
tablished within tho limits of otu
state, an attractive home and em
ploymcnt would be offered to tlu
millions of our race who are now
begging for bread ind work ir
countries beyond tho Atlantic, Ire
binti, England, Russia and Gor
many. This being done, our agri
cultural interests would flourish In
co ino valuable ami our homes mort
precious, anti our country mon
beautiful. I lave we the capital tt
do this? Foster it anti it will come
Let cnpitalistH bol i ovo that theil
commercial faith shall not meet
with rebut? anti disappointment
Lot them believe from a conserva
five policy of our loglslnturo on thc
great financial questions of thodaj
that th?lr investment will be sc
cure and will not meet with rcpu
diation. Lot not those in our owi
state who possess capital hoard i
but let them appropriate it to uso

A friend called in our SOnctun
the other day and let drop a fov
thoughts rotativo to the "May Pop'
or more properly speaking thc "pas

splsod plant to be lound growing ii
the cotton belt of the South, is wor
thy of consideration and rani

of tim blossom or full grown bloom
as being typical of the death am

long as the name of Him of when

TRIAL JUSTICE CASKS.
While tho present system of
Trial Justices andjthc modo of their
pr?tOeduro might be greatly Im
proved by legislature, lt seems that
the greatest objection is tho want
Ut com potent mon to till the ornee.
A trial can he had lor any amount
less than .$100,00 at any time
of the year after the expiration of
tWouty days notice. The costs are
just as low as any coustable or trial
justice eoulh afford to work for and
there are no costs taxed against
tho losing pnrty for any attorney.
Either party may by paying lor a
jury have six of his neighbors to
try the caso and decido the same.
If tho trial justice is competent tt)
decitle upon tho admlsability of
testimony and honest enough to
take down the testimony it seems
that a more convenient anti loss ex
pensive machinery could not be
invented. When cases are brought
in tho Circuit Court, tho delay of
business und tho attendance of
witnesses from day to day aro very
annoying anti expensive to liti
It is true either side in a Trial
Just ice Court may appeal therefrom
tt) the Circuit Court and even to
tho Supreme Court, but it is very
seldom that judgments of Trial
Justice ('tauts on questions of fact
aro over reversed, it is tho right
of every man to appeal and he
ought to exorcist! this right if he
feels himself aggrieved. But if he
M actuated by malice or pjomptod
by bad Judgment as to tho merits
of his ease, he may pay the penalty
of his appeal by way of costs?
O reen ville News,
The friends of prohibition are
making much ado over the shoot
of young Ganbroll, the editor of tho
Sword and Shield, of Jackson, Miss,
by Col. .Iones H. Hamilton, ami are
holding up tho dead man ns a mar
tyr of the temperance cause, slain
in cold blood for his advocacy of bis
It ls as well to keep these matters
straight and judge thom by tho rec
ord. The facts are that young Gam
broil had printed a Horco and very
abusive personal attack on Col.
Hamilton, intending ami expecting
to provoke a shooting affray, for
which he fully propared himself.
Hamilton took no notice of the ar
ticle, but several weeks later tho
two men mot on t bridge at night,
Hamilton in his curr iago and ( ?ani
brell on foot. Hamilton, his driver
and a man who was riding with
him unite In swearing that Gum
brell lired ii cst without provocation
other than tuan his probable fear
caused by tho-suddon upgoaranee
? of Gaudion, that be was to boat
Hamilton leaped from bis car
riage and a desperate light ensured
st closo quarters, each man receiv
ing two shots and empting his re
volver. Hamilton was desperately
wounded In the abdomen, and as
he closed with Gambrell a final shot
broke Hamilton's left arm and set
his coat sleeve afire. II? used the
butt of his revolver in beating out
the ?li ft! tit his foe.
It was a tight to tho death, sav
age and bloody, but fought out man
to mun and with cqun) courage anti
ferocity on both sities. The evi
dence and circumstances fail to sus
tain tho theory of tho State tba/
Gambrell was surrounded and shot
todoath, All thc wounds of both
men were in front and nobody but
them was hurt. There was a bul
let bole through Hamilton's car
The mnnufac'ure of sentiment
on an affair ofthat kind is too much
like borrowing tho bloody shirt tac
