tlie death of Mrs. Carolina Edwards '
the wile of Rev. K.J. Edwards. She
has been suffering from bad health
for n number of years, und for seve
ral weeks past herrlomise has been
daily expected. At last her frail sys
tem has succumbed to the encroach
ments of disease. On Monday bet
spirit was released from its earthly
tabernacle and ascended to the man
sions prepared by her Saviour; and
on Tuesday her body weis carried to
Autioch and deposited by her daugh
ter, who bad preceeded her to the
grave many years before, ilvr cheer
ful disposition, her attractive powers
of conversation and the Christian
graces which radiated front her life
?will long be remembered by the huge
circle of friends, whose fortune it
was to fall tinder her influence.
Often accompanying her husband
in bis ministerial labors ami visits,
she enjoyed a sphere of usefulness in
which a light was shed in her life and
conversation which will be sorely
missed, not only by the loved one
she leaves behind, but by all who felt
the genial rays of her Christian cha
racter. Rut why should we mourn
when the Christian dies ! The earth
ly tabernacle, it is true, is dissolved,
but the spirit has gone to take up its
abode in that house not made with
handsjcternal in the heavens.

THE SPIRIT OF THE STATE CONVEN
There is nothiug more encouraging
than the excellent spirit which per
vaded the Democratic State Conven
tion in Columbia this week. The
order and decorum was perfect.
There was not a jar from any source.
A spirit of concession actuated every
member. Tlie light on postponement
was earnest ami ably conducted, but
there was not the slightest exhibition
of bad feeling. The minority, w hen
defeated, after a most gallant light,
bowed gracefully to the inevitable,
and pledged a warm support of the
action of the Convention. Nor .did
any one exhibit this spirit more con
spicuously than the dashing leaders
of ICdgefield, Gary and Shcppard.
The hitter, in an earnest speech,
urged that Hampton and Mutier be
sent to Cincinnati without a dissent
ing voice and both he and Con.
Gary voted for these gentlemen as
well as for Ilngood for Governor.
Such unanimity is .seldom seen in

f'tlit or Qrttngrliurg Tiniest:
Tlie idea which is so urgently
pressed, that tt lawyer is absolutely
necessary for the office or Probate
j dttdsro, is incorrect, and will not
do to palm off on intelligent people.
Thon- are some cases that come be
fore the .lodge of Probate which re
quire judicial knowledge, but this
knowledge can he obtained by any
one, from any attorney at law.
Haven't the oHiebils of our County
hired attorneys from whom they ob
tain legal information, and if thoy
haven't, they ought to have. Let them
he lawyers or fanners, no man is per
fect in the 'iaw. Rut the majority of
cases in the Judge of Prolin to oflice
required for their investigation,
simply a man of educations one who
understands business and legal
terms, and an educated school teach
er will make as good a Probate Judge,
with the soivantages of hired legal
lalletit, as a lawyer. The lamented
Win. M. Hut son, one of the most
scrupulously conscientious men that
ever lived, in a public speech, while
In* uus rutting for the office, said,
thai w hile there were advantages in
:i lawyer occupying the oflice, he was
far from maintaining that i: was
lltfccssary for a Lawyer to fill. Men
who are not Lawyers, have success
fully filled the oflice before, both in
this County, awl in others. It is not
fair to exclude any class. 1 do not
propose to exclude the lawyer, but 1
don't believe in getting up a false
idea, to exclude everybody else from
this office. This is going to be the
.argument used from now until the
nominating Convention is over, to
shut out anybody eise but a lawyer
from this oflice, but it is not fair. Let
the lawyers und other candidates
who are competent to fill this oflice,
stand on their own merit, and have
equal chances. We do not believe in
any one class or set of inch appro
priating tin ofilce to themselves, nor
do we believe in any one man hold
ing nil oillce too long, or making his
living by ofliee holding. 1". S. Grant
to the contrary, notwithstanding.
Turnabout is fairphiy. The oflice of
Probate Judge should be filled by an
honc'-d, decent, sober and inb liigcnt
man and if. along with these qualities,
we can get one who is of the people;
who has never held olliee in his life,
one wdio has never been over-anxious
to hohl fYllice. but one who is willing
tu accept, mid bow with humble sub
mission to the honor conferred upon
him by his friends, let us nominate
him. Such n man is 1$. P. 1ZLAR.
Quiet, unassuming and a commodat
ing, he would make a most efficient
and acceptable officer.
The news from this center of inter
est where the Republican Convention
is assembled does not look as much
like a walk over for Ciesar as it first
appeared. The Grntititos have held
a caucus und the tactics seem tobe if
Grant can't be nominated that they
will concent rate on Kdmomls to- bent
Rlaine and Sherman. Wc suppose
by to-morrow we will know what to
expect. The ginlits arc battling
now for the mastery.
