For th? Advertiser. S ..'icitor Abney Upon Reforms Need ed in the Conrts ol' Sessions. -~' COM'MBIA, S. S., July 17, 18/S. MESSRS. EDITORS:-I notice in your last issue, that of the ll?h iJstmt, 0 communication in which the writer com ment*, amongst other things, upon itu C >urts of General Sessions.. JLIir article plainly shows that tho people feel deeply fae unjust burden they have to bear in the payment of the expenses of these Courts ; but, it also show, that they do not know where the seat of the trou bb is, or bow to obtain relief This sam." birden is hmi.o and felt by tho people o: the entire State ; and it is to be hope?; that the next General Assembly wil consider tho evil, and apply thc reined} necessary to its removal. The member* of the Legislature have hitherto labored under many disadvantages, and had .< number of matters to engage thoir at tentions; but, when they meet again, i: will be their imperative duty to revi? the criminal law of tho State. I have not time now to poiut out its radical de fee ts ; but 1 suggest to the good people that the criminals should tic made to pay thc expenses of their conviction Until this be done, I know not how any ade quate relief can bc had. as the evil is a the very foundation of our laws. Oui people, as a general thing, are conserva t'ive, and have a desire to adhere to ole! laws and traci ioi s: and lhere may bi some who will oppose any change. This desire springs from a noble sentiment ; but circumstances have changed, and i: would be worse than folly should we re fuse to alter our laws so as to meet UK changes of the period. Beforo tho lat? war, the Court of Sessions was held onh twice a year in each County : and then, too, thc colored defendants were ?ried ii fie Magistrate's Courts ; but, now, w< hive three terms of said Cuirts in ead. County, and they arc crowded with col ored defendants, thus making the busi ness at least four times as much ?nd th? expenses proportionately greater. And all this, while our people are not foul times as able to pay ! Indeed, while Ibei are at least four times less abie! It is simply shameful ! Eut, let us not blaim e ich other for " the ills we bear ;"' let ut 11? n rather bo charitable and generous and go to work to revise a id re-invigo rate our law3 so as to promote the wel fare of the whole people, white un i col ored. And I know of nothing, whicl the Legislature can do, that would si much benefit our poverty stricken Stat as tn j,;:ss an Act requiring poisons con vjcted of crimo to. be,r ^??^V.1''/. - P*r3 .vi,\ : 'iiijii, and in tl elan lt of payment. : labor at a certain price per day until th fine is thereby paid ; and aldo be sei' tenccd to imprisonment at haid labor; certain period for the crime itself. Am then, as the Counties are already bodir cTpi-ratc and politic, another Statu) should be made enabling each of th**n to work ai.d manage their own c uivic* If sue i laws wore enacted. iheO?unii< co lill w ork the roads, build their bridge? grade their Railroad.-, sustain their pan pera, fee d their prisoners in jails, an. pay all costs for thc conviction of th C i ir mais There ure many laws of th i character which could bc passed, um the peop. rtlieved of burdensome taxa tion. As to salaries and fees of officer* thi?y seoul-1 oe regulated by the ol. standard, in my judgment. Tbeyshouii bejust what they were before the Radi cds took charge of our State and bc-f >r< the war, as cotton, the chief product o the State, is now selling for i:s old priers and the costs of living are not ni ucl greater. But our people will make ? g.-ave mistake if they reduce salarie. and fees below what they were befon the war. In that case, only those who are rich, and thoso who are trilling, cai a.Tord to hold ellice. The law is mon important to the people than most of u conceive, and should be much mon prized and reverenced than it is; unt! they need the best talent thei- can com mand to enact and administer it, provi ded that talent has honesty coupled with it, without which it is nothing. Them aro however certain regulations which should be mado in regard lo fees. In some of the Counties tho Clerk of tht Court gets more foi his services thar, t ie Judge of the Circuit and over twice at much as the Solicitor. This, of course, is absurd, and should be remedied.

EDITORS :-Pray pardon me for asking a small space in your col orons, unaccustomed as I am to writing or advising the public. But this is a t me that should move tho soul of every true citizen in this County and State, ??ow our political campaign is fully opened, and numerous candidates for the different offices, are before the pub lic for inspection, or, I may say, they 83lm to be on their trial. And certainly it is one of the most important trials ."or our citizens ; and as each shall bu a jurrrin tb i s case, let him reinem bor thai "eternal vigilance is tho price of Liber ^v." Let usiu our d el i berations wei gh each candidate in tho balances, whom wo u i*b to ra resent us. Let us not look to the pij ularity ot the man who can tell good jokes and entertain a crowd by such pas times, for whilo thero is no b?rip i> . b jection to such humorous enjoyments, let them come in their proj er places Southern people aro so prone to sympa thise with each other, that such a charac ter in a man often leads ono wir.y. But rather let us look tor the- man wini has always honor, dignity, and m ra, courage, who cannot bo led astray hom performing his d?ty as to the wants ol his impoverished country Ile is tho mau that our forefathers Ibu -n t and ui?;i) for, and whose type has been bunded down to their posterity, lie is thu mun whom our wives, our daughters aud our sous ask us to-day lo elect-that we may be honored by turning over to them a government pure and uudehled. We undoubtedly have good mea before'us.

We also have good men before us who ivero too young to take a part in our lost causo ; yet we must scrutinize th m, weigh them weil and give them a fair trial. Those we should judge by their morse in our unsuccessful war with the North arc those who \\ t. old enough, yet feared to risk their precious selves in doing their duty. Keep such me? ai home' Also let us see that wo put in office none but true and tried Democrats : not men who were hanging on thc fence, as rags, during Radical rule i'i our County and State, turning either side the wind blew strongest. Such officers would be dangerous. Wo may say to ourselves the campaign of *7G gave such a terrible blow to Radicalism that !!ic party is dead, but hewars ; tak? c muse 1 fr?'in til? warnings of th?

Mark it, if we do, that be fore the next two years roll over us? Radicalism will have its "venom langs into tho life spring of our liberties." We should also look to the mora; char acter of the man's life. A ni in of g > >d morals commands the respect o' every one ; nor need we be ashamed of such a Representative though lie be nut a Cal houn. If we wish our County to com mand respect and in luenceiu ? ur Legis lativo body, we must semi our honorable and mora! men.

They passed an ex cillent examination, and made a display ol'proficiency uncommon in our common Schools. Tho larger girls were then c.lied and examined in geography, gram m ir and philosophy.

The School exercises being ended, Mr. Charlie Creighton was introduci il lu th ludience. Ho made a telling speech .vhich sunk deep into the heart of every one present, lie spoke of the great ben lits of an education and the pleas ures derived from intellectual accom plishment. Ho said our future success as a people depended on the education of our youth, and dwelt largely upon other topics connected with his great theme. His speech was repleto with good suggestions for common Schools The next Speaker introduced wa; the Rev S. P. H. Ellwell. He also spoke of the great necessity of educating tl e youth, SQd said their minds should be cultivated morally as well as aesthetical ly. He spoke impressively ol' the re sponsibility resting upon teachers a? well as parents ; and being an Irishmai. his speech abounded in witticisms. His effort was a capital one. Dinner was then annotiuced, to which all were kindly invited ; and a finer re past was seldom il ever enjoyed by any peopl-i After dinner the exercises were again resumed at the School-house. The Kev. Mr. Ellwell now addressed the little children and told them he d d not ask their attention, that if ho could not catch and hold it, he was not worthy of it. He said many things that interested an 1 pleased tho little ono very much. Speeches were then made by Dr. Strom, Mr. Denny, and others.

"UPPER SALUDA." Kor the Advertiser. "DEMOCRAT'' AGAIN OX THE EIGHTH ARTICLE. MKSSBS EDITORS :--'V Vorboten Sat" proposes to the people to bring out other candidates to be voted Tor within the patti/ and by tho persons to whom the privilege is limited by the Eighth Ar ticle of ibo Constitution. " Democrat" amends by suggesting that tho issue be made and submitted to the same voters no others. What treason ts there in this? " Demo crat" aays that wtion wo aocopt office} or ask for ofiice, or vote under this article, wr are hound by it, unless wc vote strong nnongh against it to repeal it. T there any treason in this? Is it treason to differ In opinion, or is tho treason only in darius to speak it out? Now all "Democrat" asks is that the people have tho opportunity of voting upon this article, which was an innova tion upon the platform nf the party nf the County and State, which opportunity they have not yet hail. There is a divis ion in opinion, Messrs. E li tors, among tho Democrats of the County, and we propose sottlinc that difference within the parti/, and leaving no excuse for " Indo pendents," which will be thc inevitable result of a denial of and opportunity to test the question whether the majority ol' the voters, under this Sth A Hiele, ap prove of tho secession of the party of the County from the rest of tho party in the State, and in tho Congressional and Judical Circuit to which we are attached, or not, and thereby jeopardizing the election of our candidate for Congress in the ensuing election. All the opponents of this article desire, is this opportunity. If that is given by " the powers that be," wc will acquiesce in the result, be it for or against us. Tuc editorial in thc Monitor, is thc first and only indication, from any one who is in position, tint thoro was the lea<t hopo of having this question sub mitted to the people through official channels, and I am so exceedingly anx ious that tho people have tho opportuni ty of expressing their opinion quietly and dispassionately upon this question, that I forego any reply to " One of the People," at ; nj' rate for the present There is certainly a radical difference of opinion between him and other mern? hers of the Convention as to the circum stances attending the adoption of ?he Sth Article. Il matters not who may bo right., as to them it is certain that tho people have never had the opportunity of voting upon this issue, tither direct ly or indirectly.
