Repeating is reported to have taken,
place in so many CJountier during tho
past election, tlmt the importance of
registration has impressed itself upon
as more seriously than ever. In fact
we cannot see what guarantee there is
of a fair election without Registration.
"What is to prevent mien from voting at
as many polls as they can reach, if they
sre not detected by some-ose who
know* them^and suspects them of frpqd?
Every, legislator whp desires tv fair
and honest expression of tho will of
the people, no matter what may be his
party affiliations, should devote some
thought to the enactment of laws for
tho protection ot the ballot box., v
We hope the next Legislature will
take this matter in hand, and act upon
it wisely and impartially.

into slavery and all such nonsense, wo
Would invite the colored people to
read the article below, taken from the
New York World, a leading Demo
cratic paper, and ottered not in the
gloom of defeat, but when victory has
perched upon our banners.
As you may doubt onr statement
that the New York World is a Demo
cratic organ,wc will first quote for your
satisfaction the language of your own
representative organ in South Carolina
the Union-Herald, which says: .
"The most authoritative as well as
the most satisfactory expression of the
purpose and policy of the Democratic
party in regard to the rights of the
colored people as secured by the recent
amendments to the constitution of the
United States and the recent legisla
tion of congress, that we have seen
since the recent elections, appears in
the New York World of last Wednes
day. The remarkable ability with
which that paper is conducted, and its
position as the recognized organ of the
Democratic party in New York, com
mend its utterances on any public
question to grave consideration.
Here is what the Domoorntio World
"Negro rights, as results of the war,
have beea finally fixed and established
by amendments of the federal consti
tution. Against those amendments the
Democratic party will make no war.
Whether it was wise or prudent to in
terfere with the question of negro suff
rage by the authority of an amendment
of the federal constitution?whether it
was wise or prudent to deprive the
States of all control over that question
?is another matter. Tne country,
however, has decided it; aud there can
be no step backward without nn agi
tation which it would be foolish to
undertake. It can scarcely be consid
ered as worthy of a moments appre
hension, now that the more intelligent
negroes in many of the Southern States
have become allies of the Democratic
party, that this party is going to turn
round and agitate to deprive them of
a suffrage which they are willing to
use in our behalf. This would be a
suicidal policy, of which we trust the
democratic party is not silly enough to
be capable. But all questions of policy
apart, negro suffrage is so far a fixed
fact under the constitution of the Uni
ted States, that no State can mako a
law that will operate to withhold the.
right of suffrage from any man because
of Iiis color. With all that it has to
do in the great reformation that is be
fore it, the democratic party has no
idea of undertaking to repeal or get
rid of the amendments of tho federal
constitution which the people of the
country saw fit to make "the great re
sults oi the war," v/hethcr thay were
necessary or unnceessary results."
TUE PURITY OF THE BENCH.
We have derived much pleasure
from the perusal of an article in the
Southern Law Review, written by Ed
ward McCrady jr., on "Private Com
munications to Judges.'
Without making any odious com par
Kien? he cites numerous iustauces illus
trating the opinion of the profession in
England in regard to private commu
nications to a judge, or any approach
to him outside of the Court house cal
culated in the slightest degree to influ
eucc his dicision. With tho English
profession every thing of this nature
was regarded with just indignation us
the following lauguage of Lord Chan
cellor Cottenham shows:
"Every private communication to a
Judge for the purpose of influencing
his decision upon a matter publicly bo
fore hire, always is, and ought to be,
reprobated; it is a course calculated, if
tolerated, to divert the course of jus
tice, and is considered, and ought more
frequently than it is, to bo treated as
what it really is, a high contempt of

edge, that the profession of Southern
Carolina ia less high toned or sensitive
ou this point rbau that of England,
but'as the subject is of vast importance
and it is well even tor "those who thtajt
thoylrtand to beware lest they fall" Wo
commend for general perusal the con
cluding paragraph of Mft McCrady'a
valuable article.u$ * ** >"'?' S ? - ? I ?
"Let us raise high the bench upon
which our judges sit, and strengthen
the bar which separat?* thorn fro in the
advocates,. that, the public may hear
and see all that is said and done In the
administration of justice. Let our
judges and counsel bear in mind that
<a private approach to a judge is seldom
less thou a contempt of court, and
rarely otherwise than discreditable to
the counsel who makes it. Let our
judges, regarding with suspicion even
the mention of a cause out of court,
resent, as their brethren to whom we
have alliided have done, any such ap
proach,and our counsel, jealous of their
honor, shun occasion for the vindica
tion even of their uprightness, And
bench and bar observing the mutual
ceremonious respect so necessary in
maintaining the dignity and purity of
our courts will continue to enjoy the
honor accorded to no other branch of

Trouble seems imminent in Arkan

claims that Baxter has abdicated in

Natural historians will be in doubt
how to class him. Ornithologists will
claim him because in many respects
he is a bird of prey. He lives only on
corruption, and takes his flight as soon
as the carcass is picked. In other par
ticulars he resembles the ruigratoty
crane. For when driven by the frig
idity of social ostracism from the
North,he flies with marvelous instinct
to the torrid and unotious embrace of
his African mates and peers among the
swamps of our Southern shore. As the
crane fills his craw, so this creature
fflls his bag for the flight. And as the
crane, when tho days grow hot, flaps
his wings and, screaming through tho
air, returns to the North, so this ill
omened biped, when times become
warm in the South, gathers up Mb legs
and flying with screams and shrieks
away, perches on the woodon head of
the figure of justice coraraouly known
as the Attorney General, and draws
the air with crossings about Southern
outrage andwroug. In other respects
he ia like tho inarsupiift family of quad
rupeds, for as jthey fire named from tho
icli or bag ia which they cany their

' Solomon was a wise man, but he did
not know everything. Kx* was wrong
in saying "there is nothing now under
the sun." Tho world has swung on
for thousands of years through wars
and pestilence, through ^famine and
plagues; has been visited by tempest
and earthquake*, frogs and flies, mur
rain and lice, and grasshoppers, but
never until the year of out Lord 1867
was any portion of the globe afflicted
by a carpet-bagger. Solomon did not
know him, nor did David or Jeremiah
conceive of such a calamity. If they
had, the songa of David and the book
of Jeremiah would have been lost to
mankind, for thoy would iavc fled the
face of man at tho bare conce ption o j

His former neighbors in the unknown

South Carolina, or Alabama, or Mis

to President Grant or some of his
