The republican parly of the state of South nrolina.in convention assembled, believing that the princi ples of equal civil and political rights arc vital to the interests of good government, and that they can only be enforced by the party which has engrafted them upon the stale and national constitutions, hereby reaf firms its confidence in the national republican party by pledging firm adherence to the platform adopted by the Cincinnati convention in this the one hundredth year of American in dependence. 2. We hereby pledge our undivi ded Mlpport to the standard bearers of (hat party, lluthorford H. I la ves and "William A. Wheeler, whose un blemished and statesmanlike record in the past is sufficient ns.-uranrc that all reform lying within the province of their respective offices will be t ni n< si ly pr< scented and the nation al government wisely and ccouomi cully adhiinistsred, with due regard 10 the rights and interests of the whole American people. We heartil) endorse the adminis tration of President (Irani, so honest ly and economically conducted a.- to exalt the nation in the estimation of the world and advance its faith and cri dit.

We pledge ourselves 1 .nnroiigh reform in all departmentsof the state government; where abuses shall he found to exist, and, as an earnest of the same, declare our purpose of sub mitting to the qualified voters of tin; S'-nlc the following specific reforms as. amendments to the State constitution. 1.

That the veto power of the governor shall be so modified as to allow of the disapproval of a part without effect upon the rest of an act. 5. That agricultural interests shall be relieved from burdensome taxa tion by more cqutiable distribution of taxes and by the inauguration of a system of licenses fixed upon fair prin ciples. ('). That lib public funds shall ever lie used for the support of sectarian institutions. 7. That the enormous evil of local and special legislation shall he prohi bited whenever private interests can be proleeli d under general laws. 8. And inasmuch as the system of free schools was created in the State by the Republican parly, and should he especially fostered and protected by *\it, we pi cd go ourselves to the sup port of the amendment to the State constitution, now before the people, establishing a permanent tax for the support office schools, and prevent ing the renn val of school funds from the counties where raised. 7.

That whereas in some of the upper counties of the State certain evil disposed persons have induced many eilizensto dircgard and violate the revenue laws of the I'nitcd Slates, by representing them to be oppressive, and in violation of the rights of the citizen, and it is apparent from the action of the national democratic house of representatives that the revenue tax will he continued, we therefore earnestly recommend that his Excellency, the Prcrident of the I'nitcd States, do grant a general am nesty and panlou for all violations previous lo this time.

By private letter from Germany the following facts regarding a siugu lar and novel wager are communica ted : Two wealthy and influential Herlin bankers, desiring to provide for their children's heir.s, ami fearing that through disastrous reverses they might become poor ami therefore be unable to do so. have made a w: ger concert.i.ig the United States. The one bet !*S,00() marks (a mark is equal to about twenty-five cents of our money) that the United States will not remain a republic, but advance to higher knowledge of the arts and sciences, while the other, just as con fident of winning as the other, of course, bets 4,000 marks that our country will remain a republic all the time intervening between this and the second centennial, but will not retain the high position in the arts and sciences which she now occupies. This sum of 7,000 marks (about 81,750 American money) has been placed on interest for the period of I one hundred years, at the expiration of which period the royal court of Germany will decide which party is winner and entitled to the money, the total sum of which will then be $13, o'JH American currency. Explicit agreements and stipulations have been entered into by both parties in due form of law, one of which provides that under no circumstance shall tho money or any part thereof bo with drawn before the expiration of the allotted period of one buudrcd years. An Ingenious Plea. A 8( ldier, by the rmme of Richard Lee, was taken before tho magistrates of Glasgow, Scotland, lor playing cards during divine service. The account of it is thus given : Sergeant commanded the soldiers at tho church, and when the parson had read the prayers he took the text. Those who had n Bible took it out, but this soldier had neither Bible nor common prayer bonk, but pulling out a pack of cards, bespread them out before him. He looked j first at one card and then at another. The sergeant saw him and said : "Richard, put up the cards; this is no place for them." "Never mind that," said Richard. "When the service was over the constable took Richard a prisoner and brought him before the mayor. "Well, what have you brought the soldier here lor ?'' "For playing cards in church." "Well, soldier, what have you tc say for yourself?" "Much sir, I hope." "Very good; if not, I will punish you more than ever man was punish ed." "I have been," said the soldier, "about six weeks on the march. I have no Bible or common prayer bonk; I have nothing but a pack of cards, and I hope to satisfy your wor ship of the purity of my intentions." Then spreading the cards before the mayor, he begun with the ace. "When I see the ace it reminds me that there is but one God. "When I ice the deuce it reminds mc of Farther and Son. "When 1 see the three it reminds me ol Father, Sou and Holy Ghost. "When 1 see the lour it reminds me of the four evangelists thai preach ed Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. "When I sec the live it ?'r??n>in?r>-^ .... of the five wise virgins that trimmed the lamps. There were ten, but five were wise and five were foolish and were shut out. "When I see the six it reminds me that in six days the Bord made heaven and earth. ^'Whcn I sec the sevon it reminds mc that on the seventh day God rested from the great work Ho had made and hallowed it. "When I see the eight it reminds mc of the eight righteous persons that were saved when God destroyed the world?viz : Noah and his wife, his three sons and their wives. "When I see the nine it reminds mc of the ten lepers that were cleans ed by our Savior. There were nine out of the ten who never returned thanks. "When I see the ten it reminds tue of the Ten Commandments which God handed down to Moses on the tables of stone. "Wien I sec the king it reminds mc of the great King of Heaven, which is God Almighty. "When I see the queen it reminds me of the Queen of Shcbn, who visited Solomon, for she was as wise a woman as he was a man. She brought with her fifty boys and fifty girl?, all dressed in boys' apparel, for King roloman to tell which wero boys and which were girls. King Solomon scut for water for them to wash; the girls washed to the olbows anil tho b iys to the wrists, so he told by that." "Well," said tho mayor, "'you have given a description of all tho cards in tho pack except one." ??What is that?" "The knave," said the mayor. "I will give your honor a descrip tion of that, too, if you will not be angry." "I will not," said the mayor, "if you do not term mc to be the knave." "Well/' Baid the soldier "tho greatest knave I know of is tho con stable who brought me hero." "I don't know," said the mayor, "if he is tho greatest knave, but I know he is the greatest fool." "When I count how many spots in a pack of cards I fine 305?as many ns there arc days in the year. "When I count the number of cards in a pack I find there are fifty-two? the number of weeks in a year; and I find four suits?the number of weeks in a month. "I find there are twelve picture cards in a pack, representing the number of months in a year; and, on counting the number of tricks, I find thirteen, the number of weeks in a quarter. "So you sec, sir, a pack of cards servos for a Bible, almanac and com mon prayer book." "Is a Faint Mule a Hoss 7" Nothing is more remarkable, says the San Antonio Herald, than the facility with which the colored popu lation become acquainted with tho forms of law, and the practical managementof a case in court. There was a striking illustration of this fact in the recorder's court, recently. The prisoner was accused of ridiug across ono of the bridges in a gait faster than a walk, and the proof was that he gallop a paint mule over Houston street bridge. He managed his own case. His honor said : "I think I'll have to fine you, Johnsing." '?May I ax yer a few questions?" "You may." "Isn't thar a sign over dat bridge, warning people how dey must ride?" "There i.*, and that makes you all the m ire guilty." "It does, docs it? Now, Mr. Re corder, is dat sign what I has to go bv. Is dat dc law ?" * "It is." "Well, den, dat sign reads : "Walk your horse or you'll be fined." Don't it? don't it, boss?" "It does, Johnsing." "Well, the proof is, I wa^gallopin' a paint mule, wasn't it, boss ?" "Y e-s, I believe so," replied his TTo..oirtrogfa^i'l^i I n li i "Now, if your honor is willing to admit dat a paint mule ain't no hoss, I'll rest de case heah, becase you seo dc law is I shall walk my hoss, and as it was a paint mule, dat is fatal to de indictment. You is a lawyer, and you ought to know dem pints most as well as myself." Reeorder?"Ahem ! for the purpose of this suit, Johnsing, I'll regard that paint mule as a hoss." Prisoner?"Your honor will please note my 'ccption. I jess wants to make ono more pint. Allowin' for the sake of argument, dat ji paint I mule is a boss, design reads: "Walk your boss." Now I has de witnesses hero in court to prove dat paint mule hoss was not my hoss at all. Dc law says walk your hoss." Recorder?"I'll fine you ten dollars, Johnsing." And as Johnsing was conducted to the lockup he expressed great sympa thy for the taxpayers, as he intended to bring a suit for $100,000 damages for false imprisonment. lie is now, however, at work on the streets. A few days before the nomination of Samuel J. Tilden, when free to speak its honost belief, the Cincinnati i:v quire snid of him : "It could not but be that a man educated in cun ning, in hypocrisy, in iniquity, nomi nated in corruption and shameless cflrontcry, even though his millions could elect him, would give us tho most corrupt Administration the country has ever known." Gomh-n Wouns.?"Until every question arising out of the rebellion relating to the integrity of tho nation and to human rights has been settled, and settled rightly, no man ought to be trusted with power in this country who, during the struggle for the na tion's life, was unfaithful to the Union and liberty."?-Rutherford B. Ilayet, in a speech in 1807. "I would prefer to go into this war, if I knew I was to die or bo killed in tho course of it, rather than live through and after it without taking any part iu it."?Rutherford B. llayct in 1861.
