COLUMBIA. S. C.~
Th?rs lay Morning. October 28,1874. A Small Controversy Settled. We hare felt very little interest in the disquisitions which have been put forth on what is called the blaok code. It was a bill to establish and regulato the domestic relation* of persons of color, and to amend the law in relation to paupers add vagrancy. It was passedTn December, 1865, and the year following, some of its features which were thought nnjast and harsh were modified or repealed. It is unneces? sary to 'discuss a measure passed so long ago, and under peculiar ciroucu stanoes, whose provisions were swept away by the next wave of eventB. There is no doubt that the then pre* vailing circumstances oallod for excep? tional legislation?that men stood on shifting sands without being aware of it. Few men know whither the tido of revolution is tending. We talk and legislate to-day, in full oonfidenoe that we arc in thought masters of the situ? ation; but teu years nonce, those who m*y ba upon the aotive stage, will be sitting iu stern review of what the aotors in present events plume themselves npon. The Aot in ques? tion may well tuke its obanoea in the future with a large portion of the legis? lation wbioh has suooeeded it on the statute books. We need not cite other testimony to the necessity of restrain? ing laws in 1865, than the confession of the Union-Herald, which, while seek? ing to make political capital out of it, admits that at that time, when tho restraints of sooiety were loosened, when tho relations of two races wore undergoing change, "it was the right and duty of the General Assembly to enact such legislation as would have a tendency to oheck lioense, to prevent disorder, and to preserve the public peace." Such legislation, it confesses, was "already iu the interest of tbo whole community, and particularly of the recently emancipated slaves them? selves, " toward* whom "reasouable re? straint" should have beeu regarded without complaint. This reasonable restraint, it was the object of the codo to apply, and it was modified as time wore on. In the minds of all thought? ful and considerate persons, the inten? tions of the framers of the Aot are jus? tified as being good, and not to be af? fected by the lapse of a decade of years, or a hundred years. Taking this view of the matter, it is of little eonoern, in onr judgment, whether a member of the Legislature, in 1865, voted for tbe bill or not. We think no more highly of those who op? posed it than of those who sustained it. Tbe only purpose in the world any one has to resurrect the vote npon it is, to make an affirmative vote tell against the nominee of the Independ? ent Republican party for Governor. Upon this subject we have a timely statement, from tbe pen of Mr. Gil? bert, editor of tbe Sumter Watchman, and, at the time of the passage of the bill, a colleague of Judge Greene in the Legislature, and his intimate per? sonal friend. They boarded and roomed together, and generally acted in acoord npon public questions. This gentleman's testimony will be regarded as conolusivft, and will put an end to the small controversy. Mr. Gilbert says, emphatically, that "Judge Green was opposed to the Blaok (Jode- throughout?and, in con? nection with him, we fonght it, in the House, inch by inch?the strategy be? ing, when we saw that it could not be defeated by direct attaoks, so to load it with amendments, as that it might not dually pass. With this view, Judge Greeue'8 amendments were offered." --?-??-? JUDQK GuKEN AND TUB SUMTEU BAU. At a meeting of tbe bar of Sumter Connty, presided over by J. S. G. Riobardson, Esq., held last Saturday, immediately after tbe adjournment of tbe court, highly complimentary reso? lutions were passed in honor of Judge Green; calling to mind his courteous, faithful, earnest and impartial dis? charge of his doty, and expressive of sympathy with him in his reoent so vere illness. Tbey also acknowledge obligations to him for his opening court, for tho transaction of pre?biug i business, under such tryiag circnm- j ces; and reoogoizo in it additional evi? dence of his imperative sense of duty. They also unite with tbe members of tbe profession practicing iu Clarendon, that bo will oxoroise proper concern for his health, and not bold court there this week. Shreveport, La., last full, suffered dreadfully from a destructive siege of the yellow fever, and this fall, though exempt from tiss. fever, the city is under the terrors of tho bayonet. Saoh is the progress of la^^ftd order under Kollogg's benign government in Louis? iana. - il rtj i Ii h i i m l ' Mayen* Eoandii We read yesterday, copied from a SparUnburjJ paper, somo whoops of Judge Medley, who is therein reported tobe "od k$e war.path." The Judge used to nuke a Specialty of showing np and running down the class of peo? ple with whom we have been afflicted for several years past, vulgarly known as carpet baggers. For many years it has been his favorite theme?one rolled as a sweet morsel uudor his tongue. Who that has beard him excoriate Sawyer and Whittemore, uud perhaps a dozen others who left their country for tbeir country's good and came into ours to plunder and ravage, can forget the native venom which seasoned hit* speech? But it is said times change and we change in them. Judge Maokey has changed. He now em? braces Whittemore, Leslie, Patterson, Wortbington et al., and reserves bis denunciations for home folks. Ho de? clares against his countrymen, and seeks to establish over us the rule of tbe etrauger and the dynasty of carpet? baggers iu endless succession. Of this Wo shall say nothing Judge Mackey has the right to be us iuoon sistcnt in speech as tbe exigencies of bia party may require. He may be for or against Kon? haw, as he pleases. Let him exalt the carpet-bagger, if he will. Every oue to bis taste, as the old woman said who kissed the cow. But moderation in speech, a certain oareful restrain amd diguiQcd utter? ance, characterize the language of men towurds each other who occupy the same official public position. Judge Green holds a commission from tbe people of South Carolina as Judge of the Fourth Circuit, as Judge Mackey docs of the Sixth. He bus been placed in nomination for tbe office of Go voruor. His public reoord, his mea? sure of talent, his learning, his honesty and consistency of character, his ability to servo tbe State, may well be inquired into and discussed by politi? cal friend or political foe. But Judge Mackey passes these sufo and well recognized bounds, und in a public speech desoeuds to make statements concerning his brother Judge, which, if true, bo bas no recognized right to parade before the world. Tho courtesy of office, tho necessity of at least the exterior observance of passable rela? tions, considerations which aiTeot the publio Servian involved in tbe proper bearing towards each other of men en? gaged in it, should preclude indulgence in vituperative terms by one Judge to? wards another, as they have always douo heretofore in our history. The matter becomes tbe more reprehensi? ble, when we consider tho prostrate condition of Judge Green from a aorious illness, and in view of the fact, which is abundantly attested by those who have access to him, including bis physioian, that the statements con? cerning him are utterly without foun? dation. ?-??-?

Scott has filed his bond in tbe snm of 836,500 for the purchase of the Blue Ridge Railroad, with Anson Bangs, of New York, and B. P. Whit ner, of Anderson, S. C, as security for tho payment of tbo Stato and County taxes due by the road; pay? ment to be made in sixty days. The road was bought in for re-sale, und all bondholders have tho right to como it. if they pay tbeir proportion of tbe purchase money and tbo expenses that havo acorued. The Daily Graphic thinks that the best way to get at tbo trntb about tbe coudition of the South, is for tho largo dailies of New York to olub together and pay tbe expenses of n commission to bo composed of gentlemen of un? doubted eminence and veracity, the commission to visit tbe Southern States, and tbe journals aforesaid to publish their report verbatim. The Graphic suggests for such a commis? sion Charles O'Conor and William But? ler Dunoan, Democrats; Edward Pier repont and Royal Pholps, Republicans, and William M. Evarts, (politics un? known.) These gentlemen wonld be entirely acceptable, bot there is not tbe slightest prospect that any one of them would accept. There ia a certain Major Mar rill? LeffJa Merrill, of tho 7th United States Cavalry?who recently rfwore to an affidavit, upon which some ninety citi? zens ot> Sbreveport, La., have been arrested. The charge against these reapectable merchants and manufac? turers is, that "they did conspire," etc., to intimidate oertain oolored Totere by threatening to discharge them if they voted the Radical ticket?if, in other words, they voted for candidates who had robbed theso merchants and manufacturers of a large part of tbeir substance, and wanted the further o, - portunity to complete the work of plunder. It will be of interest to tell who this Msjor Merrill is. Severul years ago ho was stationed in South (Jaroliua, and was the United State of? ficer wbo then so vigorously huutud up the parties charged with Ku Kluz ing in that State, many of whom have sinoe proved to uuve beo i absolutely innooentof the charges against them, and released by tbe President. This polioe work was not at all in the line of his duty, but was a bit of profitable volunteer labor on the part of Msjor Merrill, for which tbe souodulouBStute Government of South Carolina after? ward paid him some $50,000, appro? priated out of the State treasury. Tbi* little transaction was afterward brought up in tbe United States Senate by Mr.' Bayard, who introduced a resolution of inquiry into tho mitter. The in? quiry was referred by tbe Radical Com? mittee to Msjor Merrill himself, who very naturally uegleoted to return any auswer. The inquiry was not ut all vigorously pressed, aud that was the Uhi heard of it. Now Mujor Merrill turus up in another bit of am-iteur polioo business in Louisiana?he hud gotten a year's leave of absence, uu full pay, for bis Smith Carolina opera? tions. Not one of tho negroes so brutully treated could bo found to swear to tho ueccssary affidavit, uor any of the immaculate Republicans of tho Shteveport neighborhood. It ap? pears that Major Morrill is the only person who cuu be found in all that district cognizant of the facts?or who is the only mun meau enough to swear to them?aud beuce tbe affidavit. The South Carolina 550,000 sufficiently ac? count:) for the milk in that cocoauut. Hut to what a pass has our geutlemau army oome, when such a base hireling is permitted to remain among them ? nay, to bo grouted almost unprece? dented favors as n reward lor his base? ness. He should be, aud doubtless ia, despised by bin fellows at arms, .us he must be by every decent man in the land. ? Lou isviile Go urier-Jo urn at. The Fascination of Gaming.?New York has recently afforded a most re matkablo iustauoe of the wonderful fascination of tbe gaming table. I was iu the city when the event which I am about to describe occurred, and though it did not find its way into tbe newspapers, there is no doubt as to the truthfulness of tbe statement. One night last September, a party of three men entered one of the gambling rooms of tbe great city for the purpose of robbing, if possible, tbe cash drawer of the faro bank. One of them took a Heat at the end of the table near which the drawer was located, while tht others eat dowu in front and com menoed betting against the game, iu order to distract the attention of the dealer and "look-out." While tbe deal was iu progress and the chips were flying freely, the adroit thief, with one hand under the table, ma? naged by tbe assistance of a very sharp instrument to cut a hole in the draw? er without being doteoted. Through the orifice thus made he abstracted what is technically known as the "bank role," amounting to seven or eight thousand dollars. It was quickly uud adroitly passed to one of tbe con? federates, and tbe thiof shifted his po? sition. A few minutes afterwards the dealer opened tbe drawer and disco? vered that tbe money was gone. He was suro that one of the men iu front of him was tbe robber, but how to get the funds baok again was tbe trouble. If be gave the alarm, thechauoes were that he would get bold of the wrong man, he would be able to prove noth? ing, tbe thieves would escape, and tbe proprietor of tho establishment would probably suspect him of being in col? lision with the gang. He was an old gambler and a pretty good judge of human nature. He saw that the meu in front of him were "stuck" with the game and ho determined to take the chanoe of winning baok the spoils. He replenished the drawer from his pocket, said nothing of his loss and carried on the game as usual. Tho thieves played ou, fancying that they were unsuspected, the deal wont against them aud they lost heavily. So groat was the fasciuatiou of gam? bling, that though they had accom? plished the purpose for which they entered the house, they wore unable to tear themselves away from the table. Iu half an hour the bank had nil its money back again and the crest-fallen roguos retreated from the premises with the consciousness of kuowiug that they hud only had tbeir pains for the trouble. .... .? ? - The Spartanbcro and Asiibville Railroad.?The prompt response which has been made to tho call of tbe directors for a scoond installment upon tbo oapital stook of this company, is gratifying to its friends and promoters, us it shows that the community have confidence iu the gentlemen managing the affairs of the company, aud huve faith in its speedy completion. An? other indication of the growing inte? rest is the number of new subscribers lately added to tbo stook list, many of them subscribing without having been approached by committees, while some of the original subscribers are adding to the shares which they have already taken.?Charleston News and Courier. Oaiom OP THE Douuar-Mabk.? I For example, one morning there were J three' members of th? Co-agrees ab? sorbed In examining a small tray pf old coins in the British;:Mussum, These three were strangers to each other; they were of widely discrepant creeds?one a Jewish Rabbi, another a Roman Catholic, the third a Rulioul and heretic. So wide opart aa tbey were in belief, are tho nations of tbe earth; yet, ere tbe three bad separated, j tbey bad, together, spelled out oo tbe ooins tbe infallible vestiges of tbo primeval unity of mankind. Amoug these vestiges, none was more notable tbon those on tbe columned coin.", of which your American dollar-mark, with its fillet-bound "Pillars of Her oule ," is the survival. The mo.-d an? cient legend of tho "Pillars of Ber oti'ea" states that, ou setting up >u his wonderful voynge in a email j:ir, ho win bitten by a serpent; an oracle told hitn that if be sailed Westward, he would urrive ut a certain point, and find a particular tree, which tree would heal the wound mtde by the serp< nt. S> it happened, und, as a memorial of the incident uud the euro, Hercules set up at tho poiut where it occurred ? anciently Gades, now Cadiz?the two pillars. Some bavo suggested that i be which twines around tbe pillars iu e Spanish-Atuet icati dollar mark, is mean! for 11 serpent, but thin is ouU only speculation. The oldest En ropeau columned coin shown ut the British Museum?ouly about tbe time of Charles I?shows a separate twining S around each pillar, shaped like a fillet, and a crown over each column. We have ouly changed it by removing tbe two crowus, and making one ililet answer for both columns. But, when wo look at tbo earliest Phetiiciuu coins, we find some of them having only one column, and it Ins been se.g gested that tho double column alight have ouly indicated tbat the coin was double iu value the single column coin. But this theory disappears when we look to still earlier coins, where we ?ud tbe device to bo two pillars sup? porting un arc!), plainly denoting the door-way of a temple. As there are really no pillars of Hercules, there euu bo littli doubt that by them w:is meant only the door-posts of his ancient Phu niciun temple; and these, represented on mi uncieut coiusge, have survived in tbe coiuuiood ooius of Italy and Spain, and been cirried from the lat? ter country to be the primitive aud tbe present sign of the farthest West. Some i>f the most delicate aud costly perfumes Hre now made by chemical urtiliee, uud not, hs formerly, by dis, till'ug them from flowers?tbe per? fume of the latter ofteu consisting of oils and ethers, such us the chemist cau compound artificially iu his labo? ratory. Commercial enterprise has availed itself of this new avenue to trade and profits; but tbe most biugu lur fact is that these delightfully fra? grant products are generally derived from substances of intensely disgust? ing odor. Thus, the peculiarly fetid oil termed fusel oil, is formed iu making brandy und whiskey; this fusel oil, distilled with sulphuric acid and acetate of potash, gives the beautiful oil of pears. The oil of apples ia made from the same fusel oil; by distillation with sulphuric acid> aud bichromate of potash; aud the oil of grapes, and tho oil of cognuo, used to impart the flavor of French ooguac to brandy.are said to be little else than fusel cil. An exquisite arti? cle, known as tbe oil of pine-apples, is obtained from a product of tbe action of putrid cheese on sugar, or by mak? ing a soap with butter, and distilling it with alcohol and uulpburio acid. Tbe popular oil of bitter almonds, now so largely employed in perfumiog soap, and for flavoring confectionery, is prepared by tbe action of nitric acid on tbe fetid oils of gas tar. Death of B. Rush Campbell, Esq. ?This distiuguished Mason aud ho? nored citizeu died at bis residcuce, iu Weutwortb street, yesterday, after a protracted illuess. 5lr. Campbell was born in Laureus Coanty, and was fifty-eight years of age at tho time of his death. He graduated at the South Carolina College in 1335, and was soon afterwards admitted to tbe bar. Iu 1813 bo was elected Commis? sioner in Equity for Laurens County, which position he tilled for nearly twenty years, discharging its important und delicate duties with oredit to him? self and universal satisfaction to the bar. His Masonio career commenced at Liurens Court House, where ho was initiated at an early period of bis life. In 18G0 be was elected Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Masons of South Carolina, und served for ouo year. In I860 bo was elected Graud Secretury to tbo Grand Lodge, which position be held to the time of bis death. Ho was a genial, warm? hearted gentleman, and wus universally esteemed. Since I860, ho has resided in Charleston, where be won many warm friends. His funeral services will take placo to-day, under tbo direc? tion aud uuspiceo of tbe Masouio fra? ternity.?Charleston News and Courier. Among some notes ou duels, tho Now York Post gives the followiug: "Richard Seiners, a lieutenant in the uauy of tbe Uuited States, u gentle? man of mild manners and of a kiudly uature, iudulged in three duels iu one day, and lost so much blood from wounds received during the first two, that be was obliged to remain seated on tbe ground throughout the third engagement.

Meteouic Display.?The Charlotte Observer thus discourses of the mete? oric display, noticed in Wednesday's Phcbsix: A brilliant and remarkable meteor wus seen by many of our citizens, yes? terday ovouiug, about C.GO. It was remarkable for its unusual size and splendor, and for the sound that ac? companied its explosion. It shot down the North-western sky, becoming visi? ble first in tbo region about the North star, and vanishing from sight as it ap? proached tbe evening star, which, just then, was shining gloriously, a little above tbe Western horizou. A streak of fire followed it iu its course. It shed a brilliant, greenish light over ' tbe earth, as it sped on its way; and disappeared as suddenly us it hud ap I peured. Two-oud-a quarter minutes j after its disappearance, a heavy, dull i explosiou was heard from overhead. As tho sound was two aud-a quarter : minutes iu reaching the earth, accord? ing to tbe best estimates wocau obtuio, I the explosion must have taken place at a distauco of not less than thirty-five or thirty-eight miles from the surface of the earth?-that is, very near the upper limits of the oarth's atmosphere, wbiob extends upward fifty miles. Those who witnessed this celestial runaway, regard it as one of the most remarkable and splendid ever seen in these parts. Havbrly's Minstrbls. ?Tbia troupe U thus spoken of by tbe Savannub Morning-News: For tbe past several days we bare been quoting from our Georgia yt oaanges in regard to Haverly'e Min ?trels. We bad known Haverly as one of tbe Quest mnnagers in tbe profes? sion, aud, consequently, we were dis? posed to receive wbat tbe papers said without any grains of allowance. . Last night, tbe company appeared to answer for themselves, aud it is not going too far to say tbut it is tbe best minstrel troupe that has ever appeared upon onr stage. The actors in tbe organi? zation have gone back to first princi? ples, and, instead of a lot of silly gags, tbey give genuine negro scenes. Tbo first part is a most excellent feature, especially tbe sentimental and humor? ous songs of Freeth. Walling, Wilson aud Barlow. Tbe finale, entitled the "Hooligan Guards," is calculated to split a sensitive man wide open. The songs of E. M. Hall, with banjo accom? paniment, are unsurpassable, espe? cially his rendition of "Holte, Sweet Home," with variations. Hall is ao artist wherever you stick him, and, off the stage, he is a most perfect gentle? man. We are partial to a man who can knock music sideways out of a banjo like Hall. Then we have Goes and Fox, aud tbe California quartette, each the very best in tbeir line. The s\>Dgs of the quartette were received with tumultuous applause, and Gass aud Fox were encored until tbey thought they'd never get to bed. George WiIhou's version of "Hamlet aud His Ma" was calculated to make a man's beard grow, aud tbe audience received it most hilariously. The gem of the evening, however, was ililt Barlow's "Old Black Joe." We were of the opinion that Cal. Wag? ner's plantation melodies were artistic iu Iheir way, but they didn't touch "Old Black Joe." It has been as thoroughly studied, and is every whit as fine a character sketch as "Hip Van Winkle," or "Solon Shingle." We shall insist upon this to tbe lust. No mau who is not really a fine actor could assume the difficult part of "Old Black Joe." It carries with it as keen a conception of naturalness and of pa? thetic composure as any sketch that was ever put upon the stage, and to say that Barlow meets the expectations of those who are familiar with life on tbe old plantation, ia to give a feeble expression of our satisfaction. Upon the whole, Huverly's Miostrels com? prise tlie best troupe that has ever ap? peared in our tbeutre, and it was greet? ed last evening with an audience wbioh, in point of size, enthusiasm aud respectability, was far ahead of anything that has gathered at any place of amusement in Savannah tbia season.

Spartauburg; T E Gilbort, Somter; W H Desportes, Bidgeway; Mrs E C Borly, Lexington; W O Storgis, Rook, Hill; C J Ogbnrn, NC; HC Peeples, A compromise between oremation and inhumation is proposed in Oer many, by Dr. Von Steinbeis, whose plan is "to cover the body with Romin or Portland cement, which hardens into a solid mass, aud lenders tbe es? cape of noxious gases impossible. Ac? cording to this plan, tbe corpse would be placed iu a sarcophagus of already hardened ceiueut, tbo oavity in which it reposeth would be filled up with tbe j same material, and both would harden I together into a thick slab of a sub ! stance resembling etone. Thus, ths 'deceased, buried in this manner, would rest within, instead of under, bis tomb stone, and grave and monument would bo comprisod in the same block of im? itation granite." The ouly objection to this plan lies in its wastefulness of fertilizing material; but, per contra, there might be a certain consolation in founding one's house literally on one's ancestors, by enclosing tbem in blocks of proper size to be need aa building materials.
