The Legislature Defunct.
v I ?
This delectable body has adjourned
nnd^the large brained law-makers of
South Carolina nre by this time all
ennijly home, while their botet bills
irf^'Coliimbia remain unpaid. For
timidity and want of nerve, the now
defunct Legislature will be known to
future South Carolina. It was a
body devoid of every impulse of
bravery or true manhood. The two
Housed were not in session three days
beforo'< they were suing for pence at
tho ffebt of Governor Chamberlain.
Like: abject slaves they crouched
before.-.hiro, and pre niscd him that if
lie WyOiild spare the lash they would
go.. whithersoever he commanded
them. He became master of the
situation and played upon tho Gener
al^ Assembly of South C olina as
though that body had been meta
morphosed iuto an instrument, and
surrendered into his hnnds for Iiis
owa amusement. No matter what
key he tuched upon this great Legis
lative, piana the sound that he desir
ed earae forth. If he wanted some
thing soothing to the lacerated fcel
iuglj'r?f the trembling tax-payers, all
ho had lo do to accomplish that end
was to tuch a reform-or veto key,
and_.straigh.tway that kind of music
would Vburst forth, and the moribund
property holders of tho State would
subside into comparative quiet,
ami; exhibit signs of contentment
aoiV peace. If the more Radical
members of tho General Assembly
discovered that there was a note of
discord between their Repuhlicauism
and. that of His Excellency, the com
mander-in-chkf of the militia of the
Statfe'lwbuld. apply himself at ouce to
that note of discord and, ere he left
it^would hnve it attuned precisely to
hisvown desires. If any of his old
confederates disputed with him about
the heal lb fulness of this climate, he
would thump the Habeas Corpus key
of,-bis!'reform instrument, and send
tho doubting Thomas to New Jersy
on a gush of the music of expediency.
But what is tho use of enuumer
nting the one thousand and one
Eouhds that His Excellency is
capable of sending forth, when all of
South Carolina is familiar with them?
The Confederate Democrats say he is
good chough for them; tho Union
Conservatives claim him ns a man
aftej...their',.own heart; the New Eng
larfder 'who' can't get an office at
hopAe^trojoices in having him as hie
friend; Radical Republicans claim
him from (his day of "discretion;" and

One of the most amusing incidents
connected with the,receut State Con
vention, was the hasty retreat beat by
Herriott, alias Upper Top, a member
from Georgetown, while tho pistol
scene was being enacted between
Mnckcy and Elliott. As soon as the
respective friends of these opposing
delegates made a rush in their direc
tion of the house, the valiant Upper
Top, aforesaid, made n stampede for
tho lobby, lifting from its hinges, and
carrying upon his excited shoulders,
the frame of the green door to the
House of Representatives. His head
went through the flannel which cov
ered it like a circus rider through a
b?l???, nnd when Georgetown's pru
dent son was found, he was sitting
under the stairs leading up to Joe
Woodruff*s room. Dr. McHenry ap
plied some of bis corn medicine to
his nose, which revived the terrified
delegate, and gave hint courage to
resume his seat upon the floor, where
the next morning he rose with
much dignity and said that during the
melee he was the calmest of the calm,
and had sat quietly by his Excellency
the Governor! Has the Georgetown
Tiiiics any excuse to offer for Upper
Top? Eilher for.his run or his after
The Next President
It is hard to say who will be
Grant's successor. According to
newspaper reports the chances of the
many aspirants for the position vary
with such uudeviatiug certainty that
it is impossible to determine who has
the inside track. For a while Blair's
stock whs at tho top of the market,
but a scandal arising from some con
nection he had with the Pacific rail
road knocked it down to a tolerably
discouraging figure; Conkling got
New York pledged to support him at
Cincinnati, but it seems that a large
portion of her delegation, while they
may vole for him, will use their iu
fluence in favor of some other candi
date; Morton's prospects ore varying
also; while Bristow's, tho Distillery
Smasher, seems to be a favorite only
with the sore-heads, such ns put
Greely foward in 1870. Altogether
the chances arc excellent for a new
man to come in. So far as we are con
cerned, we shall be satisfied with any
man for "President who will give to
this section of the country her just
The most that could be expected
as the result of the convention was
that during ifcj session a line would be
drawn between those who desired to
return to tho wallow of 1873.? Union
Take care! brother, that you do
not tread upon the toes of some in
your own household, in your nosings
around the campaign ol 1872. The
"wallow" of that period, as you are
pleased to term it, had no more con
spicuous an advocate than your pre
sent God. He helped to make it, and
it were best not to stir it just now. It
is said that the miasma t.'iat is caused
to ascend from it whenever its waters
are shaken, is not quite as sweet as
Night Blooming Series, and our ad
vice is, that the "wallow of 1872" be
severely eliminated from futuro des
cussions in our party.

would emit the most of ita stench

alone, brother. Don't hoist the

Carpenter and Chamberlain.
Judge Carpenter replied to Gover
nor Chamberlain's speech through
tho New? d> Courier of Wednesday
last, reviewing the Governor's con
nection with the frauds committed
undct tho administration of Gov,
' i iMuberlniu replied the next
I day, declining to argue the question
with Judge Carpenter.
The AbhoYillo Medium, n curious
com pound ofignornnca and malignity,
speaking of tho difficulty between El
liott and Macltey, shows how smart it
can be in the following excerpt :
"Muckey belongs to the same poli
tical household and ul though he has
never yet, wo believe, been charged
with outright stealing, it would have
been a happy day for the ?State had
both he ami Elliott been killed, W.e
think that Governor Chamberlain
would be justifiable in giving tho ku
klux a special commission to dispose
That's nice language for a paper
that claims to be conservative to use,
isn't it? Just such gushing asses as
the Abbeville Medium editor, and his
followers, have been tho ca?se of bad
government in South Carolina. They
were too pure and holy to take* office
after reconstruction, too stiff to ac
knowledge themselves whipped, and
too cowardly to make a sacrifice for
the good of their country, and now
that the State has got along without
them, they are mad with everybody
that holds offico. They want them a'.l
to die a natural death right away, be
killed or voluntarily place themselves
iu tho Penitentiary. If Governor
Chnmber.'ain were to iisuo a proclama
tion exiling all such cracked brains
from the State instead of "givujg the
Ku Klux a special commission to dis
pose of Mnckey and Elliott," he would
be doing a good thing or South Caro
The Agricultural College.
Editor 2CeiCA and Times:
The Union-llcruld complains of the
regents of the Lunatic Asylum charg
ing four thousand dollars on account
of mileage and says that it is "very
little better than stealing." What
has that paper gottosny with refer
ence to the Secretary of the Agricul
tural College, and the six thousand
dollars he received for services render
ed to an Institution which is not in
existence? What is that like? Does
it show tho most distant regard for
the tax-payers out of who&hpoelcct
the money had to come? Would
auy man who properly sympathized
with South Carolina in her prostrate
condition willingly take six t boons
and dollars from her dcplstcd Treas
ury for doing nothing? Where is
that Agricultural Farm, Mr. Editor,
of which, wc have heard so much?
Docs it exist in iinagnation or in the
pocket of its Secretary ? Can y.m
inform an inquiring public? If it is
not what the law contemplated, arc
not those who have been making a
good thiug out of it amenable to
our Courts for conspiracy to defraud
the public ? Six thousand dollars for
services to the-Agricultural College!
Citizens of Orangeburg! what have
you got to sny about it ? The Farm
is ander your nose; do you think it
required a Secretary at a salary of
two thousand a year to keep its
books? Out upon such, I say. Out
upon the cry of honesty, honesty,
raised by men whose coffers arc lined
with public money. The cry of "stop
thief" has proceeded from the College
source long enough. Disgorge row is
what tho public would like to have
What have you got to say about the
swindle, Mr. Editor ? You complain
now and then of a paucity of subjects.
Mcthinks you have one now that will
furnish food for you all the summer.
Will you condescend to give an anx
ious public nn account of the history
of the Agricultural College ? If it ?s
an experimental farm, and requires
skilled labor, fine horcsc, an aparatus
as big as a country barn, nnd a Secre
tary endowed with peculiar traits to
keep its books, in the Lord's name let
the public know it. Your coirespond
ent has never let eye fall upon such
an Institution, and would like to sec
what they are doing in that College ?
We fellows born down here never
had much chance to experiment bo
fore the war, and since Sherman's
march through horc, wc have been too
"cussed" poor to go North and ask
Vermont or Massachusetts to set us
up on an Experimental Farm, and
give us two thousand a year to keep
its books. So I want to know some
thing about the one here. Will you
favor us with n few fuels ?
P. S. Mr. Editor: Please add the
annexed from the News and Courier as
a postscript to the letter I handed
yon the other day :
"The institution has received dur
ing tho past three years $11,836, of
which 6G.O00 were paid to Dr. Web
ster for salary as Secretary, 83,498
for tho purchase of a farm, and the
balance for salaries. Fifty dollars re
main in tho treasury. The building
has been burned down.
Tho history of tho institution is
briclly this. It received a donntion
of 63,000 from Mr. Claflin. Tho
Federal Government made a present
of many thousand more to the State
in the Lain! Scrip, and this was given
to the University. And now there is
a farm of one hundred and sixteen
acres, worth ten dollars nn acre, on
which is a mortgage amounting, with
interest, to $5.000, which will soon be
foreclosed. This is what tho report
of the legislative committee shows in
regard to Chilli n University. Dr.
Webster, with 80,000 in cash pay
ments and a $5,000 mortgago, seems
? o be muster of the situation."
