Since the Constitution of 1868 provided
that tho family homestead of the licitd ol
each family, not to exceed the value ol
one thousand dollars, shall be exempt
from attachment, levy, or sale, much has j
heen written and said on this important
subject. In the case of "In Re Kennedy," j
decided by our Supremo Court iu 1870,
it was held that the homestead exemption
was not void as against contracts existing
ntthendoptien of the Constitution. About
one year ago, however, the Supreme
? Court of the United States, in the coso of
Gunn against Barry, decided that such
exemption under the Constitution of
Georgia was void, as it impnired the
obligation of contracts, and was,thcrcforc,
repugnant to the Constitution of the
We are informed that our own Supreme
Court has very recently reconsidered and
reversed the dicision in Re Kenncdv,
under the autority of Gunn against Barry,
AVc have not seen the opinion of the
court, bnt we suppose it includes contracts
oxisting, ns well as judgments entered,
before the adoption of the Constitution.
If this bo soytlien the law,as it is now held
in this state, is as follows:?No person
cau claim a homestead against a contract
existing nt the adoption ol'thc Constitu
tion of South Carolina, (April IG, 1808;)
"We arc pleased that this vexed ques
tion baa at last been settled. Many of
the best lawyers in the slate thought that
our Court erred upon this question, and
their opinion has been fully sustained by
the Supreme Court ol the United states.

Few things tend more to needless and
vexatious litigation, than uncertainty as
to what i.s the law upon question? of such
importance as the one at present under
consideration, and porhnps tone other
class is it a source of greater annoyance
than to members of the legal profession,
who feel that they cannot advise with
confidence upon subjects which affect the
dearest interests of their clients. What
ever may be said to the contrary by the
ignorant or the vicious, there is no doubt
that the interests of the legal profession
and tho public arc identical; accordingly
as its members act and demean them
selves, "they make the law appcara bless
ing, or a curse; rende r it detestable ns ths
mere instrument of meanness, trickery,
and oppression; or lovely and dignified
as the guardian of peace ami order ; the
very visibly impersonation ol*justice, the
protector of tho weak and the oppressed,
vindicating the rights of the most abject,
and redressing wrongs though inflicted by
the haughtiest and highest of mankind. '
Three men belonging to a masked
party who banged an old man in Wil

ball'ago, and were tried but not convic

under the Ku-Klux net, the first case
thereunder,, in the United States Circuit
Court at Springfield. They are charged
besides the murder of Vancil, with going
in disguise on the promises of various
persons, whipping sonic, driving others

For llie TiMKS.
Mn.EoiTOK?Last Thursday evening
will bo icmcmberod by our young ladies;
and gentlemen us one oCnlcasnro and en
joyment: and ono which presented to
them something new, the first of the
kind which has taken place iu our little
Town, a Masquerade Sociable, ami wo
have every reason to believo that oyovy
participant came away delighted nhu
well pleased. The gentlemen who' were
at the head of it deserve credit lor thtur
pcrsorevornnco and aeal, and especially
Mr. T. Kuhn, who was manager, lie
deserves all the credit possible for the
manner in which he preserved order and
decorum, iu such a disordily looking
crowd. We say disordily looking, for
we were not there lung beforo we recog
nized the once illustrious and proud
Madoc chei.', Capt Jack. Jack was there
with his Tomahawk and Revolver. Hud
Can by been able to rise from his grave
and attend this Masquerade Sociable, he.
would have seen the picture, if not the
original, of his great adversary and Tat
terest enemy. Had his (Capt Jack's)
widowed Squaw been present, she w ould
have thought th it her long lost Jack had
returned from the happy hunting grounds
and was once more her companion. We
saw the 16th amendment; women's
rights. Wo saw the 15th amendment,
office holders, the Jockeys, Spanish
Cavalier, the School Boy, (6 feet 5 inches)
Uncle Sam (7 feet 4 inches), Old Bob
Ridley,the Dutchman, Irishman, Clowns,
King of Hearts Indians, (Capt Jack not
.included) Turks, and wo saw tho Devil;
Dominoes, &c. We then came where we
could see the fair ones who were present:
and saw the Queen of Night, which we
pronounced then to bo the prettiest cos
tume of the Indies present. We saw the
Bavarian Peasant Girl, Swiss Peasant
Girl, and-Italian Peasant Girl which
were beautiful; then came t-hc scat of
Government. Columbia, which was cer
tainly too pi\tty to be called Columbia,
but which was a Capitol costume for the
occasion, then came tho little Flower Girl
with her usual grace and neatness blooming
carley in life; We then heard the beating
of a drum and beheld the Daughter of
the Regiment. We then turned nround
and Hope shown brightly beforo us; bles
Ked Hope, what a great thing thou art;
If Hope was so visible, could we help
seeing the Evening Star, which shown
so brightly, throwing her radiant light
promiscuously through tho Hall; it
brings to our memory the old song; Star
of the Evening, beautiful, beautiful Star
which was beautiful. The light of
Evening Star was then chased a way by
tho beams of moonlight it makes us think
of those pleasant moonlight walks we
have taken when we wore young. We
I saw lovely Pocahoutas oh; that Smith
I could have attended this Sociable. His'
love wouhl have revived. 'Ibis is the
last character in which our young ladies
Were actors. Butwcarc about to omit
one of our sex, our Country Gentleman.
We thought wo heard one of our fair
cms whom we have named give vent to
her feelings in this way, about our coun
try friend, oh; isn't* ho hand dme. We
acquiesce. "Sec transit gloria ihuhdi."
May this Sociable belong remembered
and may it he the means of our haviug
some more such iu these dull tithes.
At 12 ocloek tho whistle blew and
thoso in masks were called together,:
which reminded us ofa ston we heard
in our boy days, which v. - will not
mention. All were told t "slow up,
ready," and the whi.-tlc Idev again,and
we beheld faces familiar to < i:r eyes, and \
perfectly lovely. (When we use tho
word low ly we mean tho ladi s exclusive
ly.) The dance was then resumed, Wc
did not dance but got my b st friend
and sat down and in r.lcasant conversa
We hope as this is the first fun of this
character wo havo had, it will not be the
last, for it is too pleasant to die so sooji
after its birth. Keep it up Gentlemen
and we are always in to help; our ugly
face will add greatly to the fun and
amusement of the guests. Lr. iai.tox.
