WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 28, 18GC.
mrs governors message.
We ham tho pleasuro of laying before our read
ers this morning tho McBsngo of his Excclloncy
Governor Onu, an able and well written paper.
After hastily glancing at tho goncral condition of
tho State, tho depressed state of her iuduslry, and
tho failure of the crops, and giving a word of chcor
ing hope for tho futuro, ho proceeds to make euch
recommendations as he thinks will promote the in
terest of tho ?Stato and her people.
Ile advises the Legislature to pr?vido for an
amendment to tho Constitution of tho Stato in re
gard to the District Courts; which can lie consum
mated at tho next session. Ho says the 3d
article, limiting the jurisdiction of theso Courts to
colored people, should never havo boon incorpo
rated into the Constitution, and tho Legislature
would then havo been loft to establish such su- j
pcrior and inferior Courts as the interests of the
Stato may require. Ah it is, the Constitution of
the State runs counter to tho legislation of Con
gress. Tho Governor views tho District Court
only as an experiment; as indeed all legislation
must bo considered that owes its cxistnnco to a
stato of things consequent upon a revolution, and
made for a socioty in a stato of transition. He ad
vi?on tho dispensing of Grand Juries at the Dis
trict Ccart, and the reduction of the venii-c for tho
Potit Jury from 24 to l8, making the jury duty Iosb
onerous, and at the samo time Baying the Stato a
largo amount of monoy.
Ho makos several other recommendations of
salutary roforms in tho administration of justico;
others in regard to Commissioners of Deeds and
Ho next rofors to tho importance of modifying
the criminal law of the Stato, in viow of tho ostab- .
lishnioiit of a ponitontiary; is opposed to public
whipping at the whipping-post; speaks of the im
portance of enforcing the law against sheriff:- and
jailors, for neglect of duty in allowing prisoners to
oscape from their custody. No less than seventy
prisoners aro said to havo escaped iu this Stato
within the last few months.
Ho recommends the election for members of
Congress to bo. held biennially, ou the day that !
members of tho General Assembly aro chosen, ho i
that they will tako their seats in the December j
following,-a mnch better arrangement than for
merly, when membors were elected four toen
months beforo they could take their seats.
Ho next adverts to the transfer of jurisdiction
from tho military to tho civil authority; think?
that exporienco thus far has justified the action of
the G euer al Assembly in per milting negroes to
testify in Court. From this the Governor passes
on to speak on tho subject of lahor and the frced
men-that ho has discouraged their migration,
and says: "If the negro remains hero his labor
must bo mado sufficiently remunerativo to subsist j
and clothe him comfortably. Schools must bo es
lishcd to educate his children, and churches built
for his moral training."
Ho also recommends tho passago of an act mak
ing it incumbent on tho Commissioners of the
Toor to provide nuitablo buildings at the various
District Poor Houses for the accommodation and
Bubsibtenco of aged, infirm and helpless freedmen.
The nest subject of discussion in the Messago is
the rcvonuo ol' the State. From this wo learn that
the cntiro rovenuo received into tho treasury
during the year, is S-477,7-13.07 ; of this amount
there waa in tho treasury on the 31st October, sub
ject to draft, a hillanco of $173,055.03, of which
$70,2-15.35 was in national currency.
Tho Governor rocommends covei-al important
changes in tho matter of taxation ; among them a
system of licenses and stamp duties, and an income
tax, which, under existing internal rovonuo cireu__
?tanecs, wo fear will not provo very palatable to
Tho Bank of tho Stato of South Carolina tho
Governor recomnionda to bo discontinued, and
that it bo put into tho bauds of Commissioners for
an early liquidation.
The whole amount of tho public dobt, principal
and interest, of this State, uot including tho debts
contracted for or on account of tho war, waB, on tho
first day of October last, $5,205,227.71. The Gov
ernor makos sovoral recommendations in reference
to tho arrangement of this debt, and providing for
tho payment of principal and interest.
The sito selected by tho Oommissionr.rs for tho
establishment of a ponitontiary is within tho cor
porate limits of Columbia, facing the canal, about
half a milo above the depot of the South Carolina
Railroad. Tho architect in charge of tho build
ings, Captain T. B. Lee, is confident that ho will
havo colls in readiness by tho first of January for
tho recoption of convicts.
Gov. Onn recommonds leniency and forbearanco
on the part of creditors to debtors, in viow of tho
bad orops mado this year in almost ovory part of
the Stato. Ho again urges tho abolition of im
prisonr-out for debt. He also recommends tho
passago of a Homostead Law.
Tho South Carolina University is tho next topio
adverted to in the Message. Thero aro at prosont
aixty-flvo studonta in attondanco. Governor Orb
rooomm'-ndB tho appointment of two ProfoasorB
' for tho Medical Behool, and one of Law, to put
i those two departments into successful operation.
> He also advocates the establishment of a profes
l Horship of Modorn Languages, and reoommond
i that th? Board of Trustees bo reduood from tho
i presont nnwioldy number to sovon membors.
Tho Govornor refors to the failure of the logis
) lative scheme for supplying tho pooplo with corn,
r and recommends a further consideration of the
A gonor&l Incorporation Act is strongly rocom
mended in the Mossago.
, Tho consideration of the Constitutional Amend
) ment, proposed by Congress, next engages the at
, tention of the Governor. Ho treats it very briefly,
. seeming to think it unnecessary to do moro thai
, recapitulate the many strong argumenta ahead",
3 brought againBt it, in which he concurs.
r In conclusion, ho says : "It ia unnecessary tx
i dwell upon a subject which has boon so far deoidec
t by tho publie opinion of the pooplo of the State
- that I am Justified in saying that i/ tho Conatltu
- tional Amendment is to bo adopted, lot it bo dom
) by tho irresponsible power of numbers, and let tu
- preserve our own self-respect, and the respect oi
- our pogtority, by refusing to bo tho moan instru
r monte of our own oh a mo."
) Tho mesa-go -frill be found in full on our eecont
SOCIAL MORALS IN THR NORTH.
They have a weekly newspaper inXcw York,
charged with Ihc self-imposed task of watching
und directing (lie publia morals. An occasion
al home thrust, candidly but not very wisely
given, lins net up a universal bowl among the
lenders of society and their representativos of
(be pros?. Such n one was the assertion, n few
months ago, that drunkenness was very com
mon among "the ladies of New York.'' This
at once called forth a storm of invective, sa
might have been expected, from Hie entire
guild of (he knights of tbo quill-from the
aristocratic Cabi Benson, in the Evening Post,
lo the humbles, penny-a-liner in Maim .;u's il
lustrated sensation sheet. True or not, makes
no difference ; but it was so ungentlcmanly
to say such a thing. Wc do not (hink there
is any veal danger of such a pi act ice becom
ing common among (be ladies of the land, mid
the Round Table would do better to abandon its
ground, in regard to this particular form of
vice, ami strike ?it the root of (lie evil-(he
prurient love of excitement, ministered unto
by every class of public teachers. The pulpit,
the press, the stage, (he lycoui?. all are alike
guilty of ibis clinic iigiiin.st society.
To make our meaning clenr.cr, wc will take
an instance A gorgeous play is gotten np ni
one of the leading theatres in New York. The
daily press give (be most seductive descrip
tions, freely interlarded willi terms which,
heretofore, were the exclusive property of the
Hash journals. All "our good society " go (o
sec (he " Rlnck Crook." "Bul it is indecent !
How can a lady go lind witness such an .xhibi
tion ?" .? It is the fashion ! It is nil the rage !"
The domains of the church arc al last invaded ;
some of the very "elect"' go lo see the Black
Crook ; there is much scandal in consequence,
when, to set this vexed question of the pro
priety or impropriety of such a step forever at
rest, the Rev. CltASMU B. Smyth informs his
congregation (hat he intends Billing this matter
thoroughly, and nscertain "the.naked truth."
Expectation ison tipto.-: the '?naked truth"
is what all ave desirous to hear, and, accord
ingly, the Cooper Institute was crowded to its
utmost capacity, on Sun lay afternoon, the ISih
inst., to listen to a discourse by the Reverend |
CHARLES B. Smyth, on "the nuisnnccs of New
York, particularly the naked truth." The
Herald gives a full verbatim report of the ser
mon, and remarks: "A large proportion of
the audience were ladies, many of whom, it is
to be presumed, (ook (his opportunity of learn
ing from an eye-witness (he nature of nn ob
scene exhibition taking place nightly at one of
the Broadway theatres, before going to see foi
This modern exponent of Sr. Fail's admoni
tion to avoid even the appearance of evil, read
his lesson, took his text, and then launched
forth into a minute description of the delecta
ble orgies he witnessed at that wicked place, in
Broadway. Be it understood, too, that his de
scription, stripped of all the accidents that
make even such an exhibition tolerable, and given '
from the reverend gentleman's own prurient i
stand-point, presented an aggregate of more
and far greater foulness than any of his nu
merous auditors would have seen for themselves:
for did lie not go for the very purpose of dis
covering ' the "naked truth,"-to tear away,;
willi Mcphistopholmusatisfaction, even the little
flimsy covering of decency?
The Herald remarks: "The speaker had the
full sympathy of his bearers.*' Of course he
hail, and this is precisely what we compinia of.
That an entire audience of Christian worship
pen should, with one accord, and of set
purpose, listen to such disgusting details, be"-- ]
tokens a most lamentable state of public morals.
Although the reverend preacher mnkes a pre
tence of modesty, when, in speaking of the two
leading characters in the play, he says: "Ho
addresses her in a double entend?;; which is so
doubly refined in a subterranean crucible that
respooi for the polite cnr3 of any audience ut- j
tcrly forbids mc to quote the language,"-yet ',
would we be unwilling to spread his sermon in
our columns. Southern render- arc not yet
prepared to pardon, even in newspapers, what
Northern Christians go to church for, on pur
pose to hear from the eloquent lips of their fa
vorite preachers. This is, of course, owing to
the greater advance in civilization, nnd in an
"enlightened evangelical Christianity," made
by our Northern brethren.
But as wo do not wish todo the reverend gen
tleman any injustice, wc give his opinion of
the play, when he appears in the triple charac
ter of censor, art critic and preacher. He
Thore wos nothing to commond It from begin
ning to ond. To say the least, "it is a queer
No. only an iniquity, but a uniqnity, with

proBs, pulpit, parlor and boudoir, until those
who aro responsible for it shall be constrained by
a roflned public sontiment to substituto for it
something that w.11 improve rather than injure the
public morals of this splendid metropolis (ap
plause)-something that will not stoop to enter
into competition with tho lowost purUous iu ord or
to satisfy the lascivious oye with sights of beauty.
(Applause.) It speaks well for our nation, for the
nativo modesty of American ladies, and the in
stinctive virtuous tastos of American artistes, that
tho proprietors and manager of this concern could
find nono upon this continent snnk uo low in self
respect as to pnt in jeopardy their all of character
and weal; and therefore to procuro their ballet
! troupo found it necessary to bring them from be
