Y/e clip the following from tho Char
leston Kews of the 1st inst., apd recom
mend it to the consideration of our rcad
"Protest Aoaixst the License Law.
"Wo are requested to priut the following
form of a protest, which .has been sug
gested by eminent legal counsel, against
the iniquitous license law:
Charleston,-day of-. 1872.
I hereby give notice to the County
Treasurer that tho license fee required of
mo under the act to provide for a general
license law is paid under protest on the
ground of illegality, and under duress or
threat and fcAr of cximiual prosecution
and pain of imprisonment; and that an
action will bo brought against the county
treasurer to recover it back. The grounds
are:,,^ t., ^.<4I<,;1 oA? in i ? xttt
1. That the constitution ho3 not dele
gated to the Legislature any power to
establish a general system, and all pow
ers not delegated remain with the people.
2. Tliat the jucenic facs arc taxes in
disguise, and arc unequal and wanting in
tho uniformity, prescribed by the consti
3. That the,only tax allowed by the
constitution, ia a proportional tax cn pro-,
pcrty and a poll tax not exceeding one
dollar pet head, and it is. provided that
this tax be annual and ia pursuance of a
law stating the object or objects to which
it is to be applied, all of which provis
ions arc violated in tho license r.ct."
It is beyond a doubt high time that the
people should in mas." and in deed rescind
the authority delegated to their reprcsen
tativu by whom it has been so shameful
ly abused, so tyrnnically exercised r?hc
law is iniquitous, murderous, ; specious
and framed of dictatorial arrogance. We
think it should bo resisted by every in
dividual in-the country?by the businc??
man because! it rorkeaa menial of him in
his own home, end by the agriculturist
because it. is calculated to kill out, in the
fitate, all that enterprise which fosters
home consumption of his product?; drives
him to incur heavy freights nr.d other i
charged Ih'ojdtfri'tul to rhnsportation;
forcing him to foreign markets l" com
pote under these heavy expenses wit};
similar articles. The question is, do rc
only pay fi-.r necessary voik, or do we
not work for unnecesfarv pay ? Are we
their servants or are they not our? ? Hold
them to a strict account of their steward
ship, and block their arrogance j'n tin;

Great excitement prevails throughout

hour this morning, and has been kept up
incessantly flaring the whole day. ,
The probable result of the elctlinii is
not yet known, but I think I am safe in
saying that the Radical tick'j!. iscUcted.:
Mr. Agncw, the citizens candidate, is

ticket, will come out ahead. If .this bu

WlIKRB THW MONEY WENT.?Just
before the close of the late Legislature,
khc Treasurer informed the members that
there was no money in the Treasury to
pay them oil", and that, all he could do
would bo to give them orders On the
County Treasurer. An angrv debato
ensued, in which Representative "Wbip
per, (uegru) remarked:
"Thore was no money in the Treasury
now , because it had all gone into the
pocket* of tho numbers, who were bought
to vote against impeachment. Decency
ought to tell the. member from George
town to keep his mouth shut, when it
was well known that most of tho moxey
rolled out of tho Treasury into his pocket.
If ho was not so black, ho ought to blush
for his shaino, and the majority of the
meinbera ought to go to their closets, and
a#k God to forgive them their iufaray."
