IL ll. OAKPRNTEU,
As soon os the above letter from Judge Cnr
pcnlcr was received, Hoyne (sarcastically) asked
If there was one of a similar character from the
Judge of the Fourth Circuit, (Judge John M. Rut?
land;) H there was such he would Uko lo have lt
read. Tilla remark created a little laughter, and
thc approving noils to Hay ne from seme few of
thc senators seemed to say, what was Interred
lrom hl3 (llaync's) remarks, that Judge Rutland's
olllclal conduct would not stand thc lest or an in?
vestigation like that or Judge Carpenter.
The letter or .lodge Carpenter was rend In the
House, also, and on motion ol DcLargc, who
arter saying "Oh I ho, that la all right,'? moved to
receive lt us larormatton, which motion was
adopted. Some one or thc colored members sent up
a resolution requesting tbc House to appoint a
committee or six to proposo articles or Impeach?
ment against Judge Rutland. Thc speaker sent
tho resolution back, and slated Hint as lhere
were no charges ol ofllolal misconduct before thc
House, the resolution was not In order.
The joint resolution or thc HOUR? to take a re?
cess rrom thc 22d or December to Hie 6th or Janu?

Corbin thought that il was thc Intcnllo

did not wish tu see their heads, nor Ilms'? <

he wauled a "square fight over Hie bill," au
didn't object to uny kind of discussion; but 1
thought thal ir some or thc senators bad taken I

np. Corbin moved Ibat tho blank be Oiled up I
inserting thc words one thousand, and that
olauso be added providing that the commission

tho commissioners generally to receive $fl00, ai

Donaldson thought $.vjo caca was enough. Jutson
mentioned no sum, dui argued Unit ir thc commis?

hurd work lo advance ibo free sebe?la ot this

those at thc North. Thc band commission, In thu
person of Leslie, began lo show signs ol au erup?

threw out n stream of abuse of Hie Democrats
whom it believed never were n-u* never will be

he said Tua Nnws "was the press or the State."
(This was mi ended ns sarcasm, but sonic or lite
senators didn't see lt lu that way, and cast In?
dignant looks landward, ns much as to sny, just
listen at il praising a Democratic sheet.) Further,
lt was or thc opinion that the commissioners
wouldn't work hard, lu mot, lhere was one from
barnwell County who was a noble fellow, he
worked alsiut three days lu thc year ami he
would not work tiny bunter; he could draw
money, though he had taken thc census, that to,
bc had taken il from thc books or tho deputies,
and had drawn $soo. The land commissioner
wound up by hinting that the Increase or salaries
was not much needed, but would glvcgood ollloes
to some people, whereupon Corbin arose and saul
that probably he would take one. That state?
ment being within thc range ot probability, les?
lie replied, I have no doubt or lt; 1 thought so.
A moi len for adjournment, which was carried,
Interrupted the discussion, which was then con?
fined mainly to remarks about what salaries were
glvsn to school commissioners lu the Northern
States. Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont and
other Slates were heard rrom; in Tuet, a sinniger
who should have happened lo have listened to
thc debate, nnd heard Hie senators say "In my
State (New York, Vermont, or other Northern
Slates, ?is the case might be,) so anil so is Hie
case," would have supposed that thc Senate of
South Carolina was the United States Senate, In
which neither South Carolina uor any other
Southern State was represented.
As thc correspondent of Tut: NBWS*walkCd Into

(blacker than usual) of ibu members that some?
