A tv're*; rresa*-sir. noou.
If there is one thing which Americans
.claim lis distinguishing the United States
i above all civilized nations it is the free1-doinoC.tho
press. Other countries may
have lighter taxes, and purer parliaments
mid less corruptible officials, but the pa trroic
American is ready at any moment
-to maintain that in this country the public
press enjoys more freedom than anywhere
else under the sun. Strong assertions
are too commonly only half-truths,
and if the above oft-repeated and very
strong assertion Is IMfcely scrutinized,
it wiilibe discovered to be true only to a
certain extent. It certainly is true that
I if freedom of the press means utmost
-liberty and license in criticising, censuring,
and abusing ail officials, leaders, and
^ newspapers of the opposite political
party, then no other country enjoys it so
.much or carries it so far into practicc.
If freedom of the press consists in a free
fight between democratic organs on the
one hand and republican on the other,
we aro safe in saying that in no other
country has it been ?o unbridled. The
c opposing organs beggar the copious voI
cabularv of abuse in their attacks upon
each other, and woo bo to all offlcla^,
even those in the highest places; newspapers
of the party not in power pour incessantly
vials of wrath on their devoted
Jieads. Their every action is misconstrued,
the;r every word misinterpreted.
It seems to be considered that no good
ttliiug can come out of the opposition.
At first sight, this seems to prove the
complete freedom of the press; but let
any journal presumo to point out the
faults of the public men of its own party,
and its editor will soon discover how
limited is the range of his freedom in
that direction. He is at liberty to discuss
amy measure provided always that he
approves every man and measure of his
own party and condemns the opposition.
But if ho ventures to mm at the luinuiuty
of men of his own party, tliey turn
again and rend him; they heap all man.
nerof hard names upon him and impute
to him all manner of evil motives.
This peculiarity in our press has been
made conspicuous during the sessions
ot the late legislature. Never before did
a General Assembly so much and ho frequently
avail itself ot the privilege of
I rising to a question of privilege. Unlucky
was the journal that dared to lift
- its voice against any man or measure in
that historical assembly. The News ami
Courier, the Rcyintcr, and "other small
fry" were brought as culprits before the
-i At.,. ?i./v
DVI1UU* IIUU lilt* HUU5C IU1 iUU llCilll/U.-3 1/11
fence of having discussed in a legitimate
manner the acts of certain of the members
thereof. As a consequence the
"small fry" were silent, or if they uttered
a sound, it was one of unqualified and
and ever acceptable prnise. Yet all the
while their columns were tilled with violent
denunciations of radicals and exposures
of radical frauds, just as if it was
of any use to throw stones at a dead dog.
Even when Northern journals were full
Of what purported to be disclosures of
questionable acts of some of our public
men, wo believe tho Presv and Bauner
wa* the only paper in the State that published
the articles.
The majority of our public men seem
to think themselves above criticism and
iueapablo of making mistakes: that they
enter the political arena completely trained
and experienced, and do not need to be
licked into shape like young bears.
They will brook no references to their
words and deeds unless they are eulogistic.
So sensitive are they and thinKkinned,
they will not allow a man to
j crook his finger or cotfto within a yard
of their tdes. All criticism they call perr
sonal attack, all censure they pronounce
violent abuse. They seem to suffer from
a constant appreliensiveness and morbid
sensitiveness as to their character.
We have been "forced" into this train
of thought by a letter in our columns this
* morning from Mr. Win. Hood of Due
. West. The late General Assembly, is a
thing of the past, but its ruling passion
seems to be strong in death. Mr. Hood
again rises fo explain. In our issue of
tl>o 97th lilt we rfifinrred to a letter of his
'wo published then treatingjof the l>ond
question. We excused ourselves from
p discussing the matter as it had been remitted
to a court of adjudication. We
gave our reasons for this course and
published the letter "without comment.''
What reference we made to Mr. Hood
was complimentary ; and yet, although
he says "very few things are more distasteful"
to htm "than a newspaper wranirle."
he has pleased to find himself.
"forccd" to engage in onethat is, if
we will bo so kind as to .engage in a
"wrangle" with him, for it takes two to
make a "newspaper wrangle." We are!
disposed to *>cfrieud Mr. Hood to a reasonable
extent, but really wo cannot
oblige him so much as to quarrel with
him. Wo regret his Donnybrook Fair attitude
of pugnacity and respectfully decline
his invitation to tread on the tail of
his coat. It would be painful to us and
not ploaaant to him to reply at length to
his letter. Wo should be "forced" to re,
jfor to bis violent, abusive language, so
(unbocoming In an instructor of youth.
If wo magnanimously wore to pass by
his ungenerous and so far as we are concerned
unfounded complalntjthat the boud
question wax "dealt with partially," we
should be "forced" to exposoliis trick of
"partially" quoting (which is truly iniscjuostiflg)
our word? ; and that would be
place the Professor in a most undignijjed
and ridiculous position before the
eyes of tho Pue West students. And it
jvould not be fair to "thoso who trusted
him with their interests" to show that this
'Representative of the county" i? a nubject
of that peculiar mental delusion
which make* a man suppose that everybody
is persecuting him. We have
heard of an old woman with a diseased
inind who chargoda town council with
having put up an engine to fill her bouse
with the fumes of sulphur aud brimstone,
said engine was really a public well of
pure water. Wo fear there are several
such old women of both sexes in Abbeville
county, whoso diseased minds cause
?hem to misunderstand and and misappropriate
our words. Mr. Hood is not
alone if) Imagining that harmless articles
jind paragraph* iu the Press and Banner
are intondo^ to be personally offensive.
)le has "gratyi^oipjly made" himself believe
thaf y.y caJJe^J )jlm a "malcontent'
and other bad namps, If we described
him we did it u^copsolously and unintentionally,
an,d he ought not to calj attention
to .the likeness. We are remind?
pd of the fact that when Pickens described
that cdjoutJ character, the schoolmaster
flqueora, a score of sensitive schoolmasters
wro^e indignant letters to the
novelist, each thinking himself the origI
ml Squeers. Mr. Hood should not have
pplied to himself expression* never in

| We print this morning the text of the)
I bill recently made law which regulates j
and reduces?most emphatically reduces j
?the fees of certain officers. So far as it I
refers to the "regulating" of "the costs!
of Plaintiffs' and Defendants' Attorneys"
the new law is perfectly innocuous, and i
if it has any objectionable features, tlie1
lejral brotherhood will not grumble]
thereat Hut we fail to see how any real j

tion which "regulates the costs and feosi
of Clerks of Courts, Probate Judges,
Trial Justices, and other officers." * No
doubt it will reduce such costs and fees,!
and may by doing .so commend itself in I
the eyes of all them that think a penny
saved is a penny gained?a fallacious pro-1
verb. To pay lifty cents instead of a]
dollar is very commendable if you really j
get for your fifty cents what your dollar j
formerly brought you. liut there's the
rub. By reducing the incomes of responsible
officers, will 3-011 secure the services
of thoroughly competent and trustworthy
men? The office-seeker's name is
legion and doubtless hundreds of men
can easily be found who are willing and i
think themselves competent to fill all
these offices, liut will ii not be disoovor- j
ed when too late that the cheaper man is j
the dearer bargain,?that the penny saved
is really two pennies lost?
We need not comment on the law in
detail, nor even refer specially to each of
tho olllces. Suflice it to take for example
the Probate Olfiee. The aim of oar Legislators
has been to revive tho old law of
IftdA Af that. t?mo wa lisirl two liw?r:ifiv#? l
Dittoes, tho Commissioner in Equity unci
t)io Ordinary. Now the work of tho two
is almost entirely performed by the Probate
J udge, at a salary not equal to onc|
half the combined salaries. In 1840, estates
were larger and more valuable than
now. Markets ami rents were lower,
and money had a greater purchasing
power. Now the moderate income of a
Probate J udge, (out of which he has to
pay his clerk) is reduced?"regulated"?
to one-half; and }-et he has to do as much
and as responsible work. As for the poor
Trial Justices?the new law will "regulate"
them olf the face of tho earth.
Was it neglect on the part of our legislators
that made them leave out the com- j;
missions on all money's received and I
paid out by Sheriffs and Probate Judges,
?commissions on the settlement and distribution
of estates? This is a very im

paid for.
The Gcnerul Assembly was no doub
trying to be economical when it enacted
this law. This praiseworthy motive actuated
them in everything but what
(touched their own daily pay. But we
[ l'ear.that it will prove to be extravagant
J economy. Public officers, from whom
j we demand heavy bonds in proportion to
their weight of responsibility, should be

their security which they give as responsible
The News and Courier.
I In our advertising columns will be ,
j found an extended notice of our Charleston
contemporary, the Neu-s and Courier,
which we commend to the attention of
our readers. That journal is well known
to the people of Abbeville to be of a very .
i liich orrW?r?Rnrmwl to 110110 in tho South
era States. Xot long ago, the editor of
one of tne moat influential daily newspapers
in a neighboring State assured us
that he considered the News and Courier
the only really representative Southern
paper, and that so far as its selection and
arrangement of news were concerned it
had no superior in the United States. Qf
the hundred and odd exchanges that
came to his office daily, the News and
Courier was the most welcome. That
was high praise from a disinterested man,
and we think that the freshness, and independence
of its editorial articles, as
well as the admirable management of its
news columns, fully justified it. It3
(editors and proprietors spare neither
! pains nor expense in their efforts to make
it worthy to take the h'ghest p'-^e, and
its reporters are ubiquitous. The News
| and Courier report of our late Hampton
meeting here was so full and admirable,
we copied it entire in these columns.
The acknowledged head of "the
Fourth Estate" in South Carolina, Democratic
to the heart and to its own hurt
.sometimes, sound and safe in its opinions
and fearless in uttering them, serving the
State best by being its own master, the
News and Courier should be in every

Correspondents who have unkind
things to say concerning other newspaj

of the J*ress and Banner. "We are
neither a tale-bearer nor a go-between,
and we have for years refusod to print
any letter reflecting unkindly upon a
neighboring journal. Our correspondents
will surely agree with us that the
manlier course for them to pursue is to

Maxwell for a Second Term.
At the last meeting of the Greenwood
Township Democratic Club, Capt. J. T.
Parks offered the following resolutions
which were unanimously adopted.
Whereas, the time has arrived when the
Democratic party of Abbeville County
should select its representatives for another
campaign, and whereas, our present
Senator, the Hon. J. C. Maxwell, combines
all the qualities for that exalted position;
therefore, be it resolved,
1st. That it is the duty of the Club to
present to our fellow citizens of Abbeville
county the claims of the Hon. J. C.
Maxwell for re-election.
2d. That in him we recognize the high
toned and fearless representative of the
people's rights, one in whom there is no
g-iile, and who while seeking the highest
interests of the Democracy, scrupulously
regards the interest of all irrespective
of party alttiiation.
3d. That we hereby nominate the Hon.
J. C. Maxwell for a second term as Senator
of Abbeville county and pledge him
our undivided support,
