The Itcgislrufion Question.

We have made no comments on the
viuws of the IScivsand Com a'i n this
score, and make none now, but these
extracts from Northern newspapers
are singularly funny. Republican
Massachusetts and Connecticut can,
with impunity, pass a law I'm bidding
any one to vote who cannot ".cad the
Constitution and write his name;"
but the slightest proposition in South
Carolina to purify her election laws
raises a furor of excitement, among
AVe call attention of'tha immaculate*,
however, to the met that the Legis
lature of Democratic .South Carolina
has refused to do what Republican
Massachusetts has done, viz: to de
]oivc all of the privilege of voting
who caii'1 read end w?te. Mark weil
that this is what Northern Stales
have done and what South Carolina
refuses to do. And now, RS these
papers have been so zealous in pub
lishing as a foregone conclusion that
the Democratic Legislature of South
Carolina would adopt the Ne?t\s and
Cturivr policy, and pass an education

One of Lite best signs of th e time
is the general iudilT erence t. politic-;,
ife do not mean by 1 hi.-> to approve
an entire unconcern in the govern
ment of the country on the par! of the
citizens, for such nn indifference to
public affairs would be dangerous to
liberty. When good men fro at the
Jove of case, or distaste for politics,
leave the country to office-seekers,
great barm is done. It is only by
vigilance that < ur liberties arc secur
ed. 'J here is a golden mean in all
things. Either too much zeal or too
much indifference is dangerous. The
unhealthy stale of politics is when
men arc attracted by the love of office
to the extent of turning their minds
from busiucss and converting them
selves into politicians. The healthy
slate is when there are no politicians.
AY lien business has greater attractions
sfban office, and when all are engaged
in material advancement. Such
fortunately seems to In- the tendency
of the times. Not many yeiri back,
under Radical rule, every court house
was throngod with professional poli
ticians. Mow all that are out of the
Penitcutiary uro at some kind of

make an honest iiviiiL'.
Moderation is the certain result id
wisdom. Extremes on any subject
will lend to error. The moru the
mind expands, I ho more moderate vvc
become in our views. When men arc
possessed of but one idea, they arc
sure to run to extremes, but when
they are able to examine into things
for themselves, and view the i in
different light- they arc I i hern I in
their views, and Iibent' t ?war I-. those
who think diHerenlly from them

the more loth we arc loju Ige hastily.

lit v. V, 91. Kennedy.
The death of this distinguished
divine of the Methodist Church wi'l
be a so* ere blow, not only to the
denomination of which he *?.".s a
member, but to the State at large.
He was a minister of culture, eloqu
ence and earnestness, and was univer
sally beloved on account wd his ex
cellent qualities of heart and head.
For many years he was editor of
the ?V<????/.'/"/?// Christian Aiicu <?'<? which
he controlled with marked ability un
til failing health compelled his with
drawal, and his chair was resigned to
Rev. S A, Weber, who is now ably
carrying on his noble work.
Dr. Kennedy was widely known
and greatly beloved in Ol"iiigebil>'g i
where tho sail intelligence ol his de
mise will ho received with pang-; id'
sorrow, relieved only by the assur
ance that he has gone to receive Hie

S'raud and Km Cure.
The following sentiment taken from
a recent letter ol Hon. 1>. H. Mill, of
Georgia, contains a deal of truth:
"The people must cud the triumphs
of hand, or fraud will end the liber
lies of the people, and thai, too, at
no distant day.'' Vic has struck the
I matter al I he core. The faul 1 for the
Iruud and corruption by which we are
curstd lies with tho people. 1'hey
have the power, and it is a poor ex
( iihe to prate about political trickciy.
Ii the people would rise to their duty
the remedy would bo certain. They
are too iudilferent to their rights, and
arc too willing to 'allow others to
think for them, instead of thinking
and acting lor themselves.
The Ncirs mil Courier commenting
upon the refusal of the Legislature to
adopt its suggestion in reference to
the passage of a Registration law,
with an educational qualification, uses
the following emphatic language :
"The election ol 1800 can b.? bridged
over. There will he no break in the
I in iy lines. Alter that the pro.-pects
ol the Democratic party will be mi
plea.-aii'ly blue, if the Leg is I a inc.

It is the province of the citizen to
criticize publio servants, und I wish
to call attention to some of the omis
sions of our legislators.
i irst and foremost, they have neg
lceud to pass a Registration law. It
is hard to understand the reasi/u for
ibis omission, if honest elections are
desired. Second, they have neglected
or refused to pass the hill by which
graded schools could bo established
in tho cities and towns. The pcoplo
want education, and we aro surprised
at the refusal of our servants to ad
vance our eau:<e in this direction.
Third, they h ive token no step.} to
encourage immigration into our' lute,

rule has passed. This is an umis.-iou
which the Democratic party and th:>
