THE''TRIAL OF MOSES & HUMBERT
. Ibappointed for to-morrow. Our county
is much' more concerned with the case
i against the hitter than the former. Con
viction, in the ense of Humbert, means
anOther:dcHcie*^y levyand self interest
causes us to' hope he wilt not be found
guilty. We confess our surprise that
the amount charged, on thcState account,
against;him, : is only $6000, as his defi
ciency, at the time of his arrest was com
monly reported to be nearly three times
that .amount. His acquittal in the present
case,,however, will not affect his settle
ment with the County, which has never
beta made with the County Auditor. He
Kas declined to turn over his books, show
ing disbursements &e., to his successor,
stating they .were his privato property,
purchased with private funds; which ap
pears strangei as the corresponding books
of some of his predecessors are on file in
the office. As regards the case of Guv.
Moses, our" impression is that the State
Treasurer will learn something about bis
duty, in- fchc matter of accepting paper;
and dishonoring the same when presented.
Altogether, both cases (as they have been
served by order of the Court) arc of great
interest to the commuuiiy, and wc express
the hope again, that Ex-Treasurer Hum
bert will be found inuocent, and our
County spared the infliction of another
Ice Cream Entertainment.
Mb Editor:?A goodly number of the
citizens of Orangeburg obeyed the sum
mons of your paper of last week, and
repaired-to the hall of the Fire Engine
Co., on public square at, from 4 o'clock to
10, P. M., Friday 22nd., to partake of the
pleasures of an Ice Cream Entertainment
given by the ladies of the Methodist
church, for the beuefit of Parsonage &c.
Promptly at 4 o'clock were to be seen
tastefully arranged tables supporting a
rich profusion of fine cake, prepared lor
the occasion, and presided over with
grace and dignity by two young ladies of
the committee. Behind the screen were
two others, presiding with groat compo
sure over the ice cream in process of
preparation, amid the clatter of plates
and the buzz and whir of the freezers. The
entire hall was under the .supervision of
two ladies more advanced in years and
experience; and by their oversight and
directions the afternoon and evening
passed off with great order. Fn m early
after the opening until 10 P. M., there
was a continual come and go of the young
people of the town. The hall was bril
liautly lighted from end to end by neat
lamps buruirtg kcrosine oil, and by that
good illuminator was to be seen tho
morcnntural and permanent light of
the many pleasant luces of the fair
sex of the town of OrangebUrg. There
was freedom und involuntary vivacity
manifested by all present that only such
innocent social comminglings conspire to
developp. Every eye, of adult and child,
seemed to sparkle with a new lustre, as
they gazed on the little, assemblage, and
partook of the plat ? of frozen cream fur
nished to band. The many musical
voices employed in plensah* intercommu
nication, and the bright faces, radiant
with a new pleasure appeared to approve
houudly of Ibis effort of the ladies to
furnish an occasion to break the tedium
of an evening in town, and to place with
in their reach a delicacy so rate and re
freshing as a plate of well served ice
The inir managers of the evening de
serve a vote of thanks from the young
persons in attendance for tho happy in
fluence of the occasion, and for the needed
social feature it will dcvclopo and foster
in furnishing the opportunity for innocent
association at least once a week during
the summer months. The delightful
occasion having passed off so approvingly
and the verdict < ! all so mticli iu lutruiu
ny with the facts given above, we are not
surprreeJ at finding theappetiteso keenly
whetted for a repetition of the scene; and
we voluntarily bespeak, for the ladies iu
charge for next Friday oveuiug a larger
patronage, now that i^ is so generally
know ; and for tho managers, every one
will readily endorse judging from the
''benefits of the past." Visitor.

.-hall be armed with the power of taxa
tion in their several counties, to help to
educate everybody's children with the
tax payer's money. When and where is
this rage fjr taxing to end? Federal
tuxes, Stale taxes, county taxes, munici
pal tuxes are already heaped upon the
toiling tax payer until ho i; literally slag
goring under the multiplied exactions
and groaning for relief, yet here is
another taxing power to he set to work,
if School Commissioner Orr's statesman
ship be taken as the guide.
Instead of imposing more taxos wo are
in favor of repealing this whole common
school humbug, dismissing its officials,
returning '.be money wasted upon it. into
j the Treasury anil reducing the taxis to
the lowest possible rale. Wo are not to
bo awed into acquiescence in this attempt
to Yankoci/.c our system of schools by
prevailing mania upon the subject. It
unsuilcd to our situation, and above all,
it is unjust. Education is not a work pro
per to be done by the Government. The
Government has no right to tax us to
educate another man's children. To
impose upon us the. performance of
another man's duties. Let it compel
every man to fulfil his own obligations.
Let it enforce (he performance of moral
duty where the n;oral law attaches it. It
is in vain to say that there is no other
mode, of securing general education. No
honest and earnest effort to devise a just
and efficient scheine suited to our situa
tion has ever been made. It seems to be
imagined that, everything done by the
Government must be effected through
the taxing power.
We would like to see an efficient system
of education established w hich .-distil be
suited to our situation r.nd wants, suppor
ted by legitimate means. Wo do not
belicvo there is a man in Georgia, able
to work, who cannot give bis children u
good .solid English education, if he really
wishes to do if. If he is unwilling to do
it, it is gros sly unjust to impose it upon
