An Awkward Position.
The Legislature last week elected
Judge Welver Chief Justice. On
Monday after the election was over,
and the to utter was supposed to be
settled, the Chief Justice elect sends
a letter to the General Assembly
declining to accept the ollice. He says
that he finds that grave doubts exist
as to the power of the Legislature to
fill this vacancy, and he is "not will
ing, lor the sake of mere personal
advancement to take any step by
which lha slightest doubt may be
thrown upon the legality of the com
position of the Supreme Court, or
that the interest ol the State, should
be, iu the slightest degree, imperilled
by a failure to complete the organi
zation of that tribunal promptly in
such manner as is thought to be best
calculated to secure the welfare ol the
We do not think that Judge Me
Iver is to be censured for coining to
this conclusion. We regret that be
did not reach it before he stille red the
Legislature to elect him, bid we have
all the time thought, as we c xpressi d
in an editorial some weeks ago. that
it was best, in view of the dubious
legality of such action, for the Legis
lature to make no election, but to
leave Juatico Willard undisturbed
until the term for which he claims
The New Departures.
The letter of Col. Klison Keilt of
Neu berry in favor of the South tak
ing up Grant for the Presidency ex
presses views shared, we are satisfied,
by very few outside of the author.
The folly of au oh u departure; merely
to appease Northern seutiment, finds
a Irish and living illustration in tho
Horace Greeley farce of '7-, which
has given the Democracy a back-et
from which it has not even /et fully
recovered. And its criminality con
sists in the abandonment of the funda
mental principles uf the parly.
Democracy means the supremacy of
tho Constitution and of tho civil over
the military authority, and Grant ism
meain exactly the reverse. To ac
cept Grant therefore is simply to
give up the battle, and join the He
publican party. We know that Col,
Kcitt does not mean anything of this
kind, because be is as true as any
man in the State to the interests of
Democracy, but we are sali-fled that
the taking up of Grant w til.I be ihn
and nothing *e! so.
The second "departure" In which
we would allude here is contained in
the extract from Col. Aikoii's lottir
which WC publish in this issue. There
is a gi eat deal of food for reflection
in this letter. We have all abnii
said that the d biding n'f (be South ill
President-making and national poli
tics was injurious, and ten do I to the
creation of a solid North against us.
Jt has truly come to this, that the
Northerner, as a general thing, votes
with the Republican pirty, u t be
cause of its peculiar duett incs, hui ll !?
entire he conceives it to he working
for the interest of tho Northern \> >r
tion of the Union, and in the same
way the Southerner votes with the
Democracy, not because he i* wedded
to its principles, hut because he he
lieves it works lor the interest of bis
section of the In inn. In nine cases
out of ten the vi Iff docs not under*
stand the principles id* Irs party. I
is there fore plain, a- Col. Aiken say.-,
that/he parties have become section
al, r.nd no longer practically work
out the principles tor which they were
Col. Aikin's remedy i.-. for the far
mem of the Union to cstabli ?h a party
which shall know no North, no South,
no East, no West, but thai! he based
upon the interests of the great A ni
ctiltural ci.iDimiuity, which consti
tutes the hone and sinew of the coun
try. Now, however practicable of
dcfcirnblo Col. Ajkcn's schemo may
1h-, howovr probable its fulfilment
\vu\ h? ill ih'g lr-rr intuit' the great
Democratic p:irty is at ,.ros i t our i
recognized mid established organi/.a.
linn comprising all classes ot'tlio com
niuuity, aud our efforts foritsud
vanccment uud improvement, as well
as ? ur nllegiancc t> it should he tin
faltering. To correct its abuses and
j remove the impedimenta to its pio
i gross is our chief duly. What, is its
j greatest weight? In our opinion the
I sectional caste which circumstances,
and which Northern politicians have
sought to place upon it, and which
Col. Aiken has so correctly pictured.
Remove this, and it will control tli"?
Urion, because it is founded upou
the purest principles.
To this end let our statesmen and
our conventions labor Let us not
waste our time dreaming upon what
might be, or what ought to be, but
like men, "act in the living present."
We have always said, and firmly
believe that the farmers ought to
assert their rights moro boldly and
effectively. They f cd all, and they
should exert tho controlling power in
the government But "that power
can he exerted //"//? in the Dcmocra
tic parly, aud there is no use to bo
waiting for a political millennium.
This hotly has a great many bills
on the calendar which, if taken up,
will prevent an adjournment before
the holidays. Most of them, how
ever, are ol local and of minor im
portance, ami it i* to be hoped, in
view of the fact that law making
costs the people about S 11)00 a day,
thnl ninny of iheni will be passed over
for the sake of a shoit session and
economy. There are, however, some
important matters, that must be ar
ranged in consequence of their public
The agitating question of tho pub
lic debt has been practically settled
by Mr. Ficken's bill appointing Mr
James 0. Coil, Special .Slate Com
inissioner to examine into the Sta.o
debt, and eliminate all declared in
valid by the Supremo Court.
The Columbia canal bill which we
mentioned in our last issue, has J
passed the House and will go through J
the Senate; and tho Charleston canal
bill which provides for the cutting nf
a (anal thiough Charleston Neck, j
I uniiing tho Cooper aud Ashley rivers
is now before the House.
A general registration law will
come up. One bill is proposed by
Mr. Ficken of Charleston, and
another by Mr. Dnrgan of Sumter.
To the latter is attached a slight edu
cntional qualification. There is.
however, evident apathy on this
subject, and it is dilficillt to say w hat
w il I he done.
A caucuaon Monday night decided
to repeal the i wo box law which was
passed for the purpose of having the
voles lot Federal and State Officers
in separate rooms and boxes.
A lull tu establish a Bureau of
Agriculture, similar to that in the
State of Georgia a id other Slates,
has passed its second reading It is
to he supported by a liceusc tax of
SJOOO on phosphate manufacturers.
A bill for the establishment of an
Agiiculturul College at Columbia on
the grounds of the State University,
similar to die uno already main
tained at Orangeburg for the colored
students, has'received tho saucii mi of
the Committee on lid icalion, and
will prohabh pass.
It is a shame that $191,800 from
the sale of land scrip, intended for
educational purpose-, have been di
verted and lost to the State by tho
Radical Financial A gent Kimpton.'
The bill to allow towns aud cities
iho privilege of taxing themselves tbr
.-(hod purposes is now before the
General Assembly, and, we fear from
present indications, will find sumo
difficulty in passing. If it passes
i here will he nothing to previ ut the
establishment of a fust-class High
School at every i'oiinty Seit.

Taft, the Republican Senator from

a sensation for politica capital on iho

eiuhavored to make it appear that

with every encouragement when Im
comes here, and that those who have
lands to dispose of, will put them at
reasonable figures. It' we do other
wise we will drive these excellent
immigrants to the wilds of the1 West.
Would that wo could induce a settle
ment of this kiud in (>raiigebnrg. No
better set of immigrants can be found
in the world. Whatsay our farmers ?
We quota the following words
from Ex-Mayor Sale's farewell ad
dress, which we have not seen pub
lished anywhere, except in the Char
leston *' Democrat":
'T have firmed "no entangling |
alliances" nor combinations with the
Hatlical party in the campaign just
ended, nor any other. Parti/.an ora
tors, malicious, corrupt and venal
publishers and ulitors in this city,
have maligned me, and.?tut forth,
through the press, a tissue of false
hood-, .seldom equalled in any pre
vious campaign. Again, thanking
you gentlemen, for your atteudauue,
1 bid you adieu !"
In his concluding remarks to the
new Council he says :
"May peace, unity uu ?W prosperity
at'eml your administration to the
Flour Inspection in Charleston.
