Message No. 52 from the Governor was
read as follows:
COLUMBIA, March 22, 1809.
lb the Honorable the Senate of South Carolina.
SENATORS: I respectfully return to your
honorable body, in which it originated,
"An Act to pr?vido for the uniform and
proper promulgation of all legal and public
notices, without my approval, for the fol?
In the first place, I deem it unnecessary,
as there has been no complaint or evideuce
adduced that the system at present existing
is not amply sufficient and satisfactory for
lu tue second place, I consider it injudi?
cious in imposing upon a particular State
officer, in addition to his present duties,
which are sufficiently onerous, a large
amount of.labor that legitimately belongs to
his colleagues in the several departments of
thc State government, and to tho local au?
thorities in their respective Counties. The
County officers, especially, whoso duty it is
to advertise the legal notices, may be sup?
posed, from their local knowledge, to be
better advised of tho standing and circula?
tion of their neighborhood ]Ournals than
persons at a distance. To thom tho Consti?
tution and laws have entrusted the direction
and supervision of County affairs and Coun?
ty expenditures, and until they are shown
to bo incompetent or unfaithful, I deem it
the part of wisdom and sound policy for the
State to interfere with them in tho dis?
charge of their duties, or intermeddle with
strictly County matters, as little as is abso?
In the third place, tho designating of cer?
tain newspapers as "official organs" of the
State, aud of the counties, I consider highly
inexpedient and improper. With but a sin?
gle exception, every secular newspaper in
the State is inimioal to the existing State
government. I am unwilling to endorse
their misapprehensions, or to increaso their
power of misohiof, by conferring upon
them the name or character of "official
organs" of tho State or Counties. N6ces3ity
oompels their use to give circulation to our
legal notices, which, of themselves, suffi?
ciently indicaio their official oharacter, and
as the object of advertising is publicity, the
officers interested in the several localities
are the best judges of what newspapers will
most effectually accomplish their object and
satisfy the requirements of law.
For these reasons, I feel constrained to
withhold my approval of this Ac1, and re?
spectfully return it to your honorable body.
I have tho honor to be, very respectfully,
R. K. SCOTT, Governor.

Has been in operation but four years, during
which time it hus assured a larger amount thau
any Company in tho United States, during a cor?
responding period of existence. Ono of tho chief
causes of its organization, was the forfeiture by
several Northern Companies of the policies of
Southerners, during the war. The leading officers
of this Company protested against this injustice,
and on its conHnmir*Hon, withdrew and orga?
nized the -'GLOBS MUTUAL," on principles more
liberal and juot than thoso yet adopted hy any
other Insurance Company. In the event of death
in battle or in a duel, the equitable value of the
policy will be returned to the heirs. ALL other
Companies forfait it. In case of suicide, the
FULL Policy is paid. No restriction on travel.
This Company has, in its gnaranteo fund of
*.')00,0o0. an element of strength possessed by no
other Company. It offers the entirely new feature
of Probability Endowment, which gives the
largest possible som for the premium paid. No
other Company possesses this feature. Insures
children of any ago. In tho moderation of its
premium rates, in the variety of its tables, in its
dividends and in tho security offered insurers, it
invites comparison with any other Company.
