TnE Senate of South Carolina which is Republican refuses to go into the election of Chief Justice until all the members of the Mackey House are ad mitted. A Senator is to be elected this fall from tbe counties of Copinii and Clai borne. Col. Hen. King was suggested for the position last year. How would he do now? The Quitman ruteiliqcncer has hus * ended. The starvation season for newspapers is upon ns. and before the summer passes the demise of many oth ers will be noted. Amite and Wilkinson counties are to elect a Senator this year. The T: eral'i thinks Amite is entitled to bring for ward the candidate, and numes for the j office Col. Moses Jackson. It is asserted very confidently that the President will in his message to Congress at the extra session recom irend the Texas Pacific subsidy—that he will do this as a part of his South ern policy.

Tho Northern people with whom he conversed express- 1 a great desire to be friendly with the South, and were anx ious to know all about this country and its people. The war seems at last to have ended, and tho bitterness that baa so long existed betweeu the North and South in passing away. If the petwde of each section knew ono another bet ter they would like oue another better. Hives' Southern policy Is almost unanimously endorsed. The better and j more liberal of the Republicans main- j tain that ho has done just what he j ought to have done, and sn.v that the; State g lvcrament that was dop-ndeM J upon the support of a dozen bayonets; for its existence was not worthy of rec ognition or support.

The President has issued a proclama tion convening Congress October 15th. 1S77. This is done for the purpose of 'Raking appropriations for the army •sud navy. The last Congress was de termined to put a stop to Federal inter i’oraneo in the South, and took tho po sition that if troops were to bo employ ed to prop up the rotten Radical gov i ruments of romo of the Southern States that they must do the w r't with out pay. and adjourned without making any appropriation. This may have bad something to do with tho withdrawal of tho troops from South Carolina end Louisiana. In fret, Hon. Proctor Knott, of Kentucky, says it is the solu turn to tho question. He maintains that Hayes was forced to remove the troops by the action cf the Lower House of Congress, which was largely Democratic. At all events, the troops have been removed. Congress has been called to meet in extra session, and tlrn people of the South have many reasons to be thankful for their deliverance from Radical thraldom. -- A tfw.. - Ttic Racrt.

'I'he Rimlri-n War. • A few small engagements have taken place between the Russians ana Turks since oar last issue, with the victories about evenly divided. Tho indications now are that England will ho forced in to tho fight. If so she will espouse the cause of Turkey, not for any fri-mily feeling to the Ottoman empire, but to protect her own interests against Rus sia. * J.ord Derby, of England, has address ee a caustic letter to Russia, iu which he says: It is impossible to foresee the con sequences of such an net. Her majesty's government would willingly refrain from any observations in regard to it, but as Prince GortshukofV seems to assume, in his declaration addressed to all the governments of Europe, that Russia is acting in the interests of Great Britian and other powers, they feel bound to say, in u manner equally formal and public, that the decision of the Russian government, is not one which cm have thc.r concurrence or approval. Thus. Carlisle, the great English mi Ihor, has published a letter counselling England s uentrality. It is thought by a .great many per sons. who are in high position, thut be fore the war is over, England, Austria and France, supported possibly by Spain and Italy, will be found allied against Russia and Germany.

And that is the surest and most lasting foundation.” Well, we are at a loss to imagine v. hat will happen next. If our eyes do not deceive ns. Harper's Weekly, the most ultra Republican journal in the United States, and the most bitter assailant of the South, has condescended to admit for once that the conciliation of the South “has the cordial sympathy and support of the most intelligent, humane and patriotic sentiment of the country." Wc are willing to give that journal one white mark.

Th« President has agr: ed to visit New York before the meeting of Con gress in extra session, and it is believed preparations will be in- do for sneli a re ception as bos hardly ever been accord ed to anv man. The partisans of the President have a great battle to fight whenever the policy of the Administra tion comes before the people at the polls, or is di Missed in Congre s, and they will naturally attempt to show in advance wliat the chief city of the country oan do nt a reception. Nothing has occurred to indicate the loss bv Randall of bis lead in th - 3ppnkor*hip contest.

B-sides the danger of im proper use, the expense of the pr. sen organization is a strong argument for reduction.

Ail that they have gained since the war in re-establishing their rights under tlie common Government, was by standing together. If the bayonet is to be removed, it is because the South contributed her part, to tliepopu !ur majority of three hundred thousand voters who made the demand through flic ballot-box. There ,s power in the voice of a people united. The spirit of hate and persecution, more deaf than wind and waves to the appea s of jus tice and Immunity, quails before it. The natural instinct of self-preserva tion points to but on* course. It is for tt^> South to stand firmly by the Na tionul Democracy, which in the dark days, and through good and evil ro port, demanded equality of privilege for her in the Union.” S ire ^011 • I:. The New York Day Book says of the new ord*=r of things: Tlie South is free and disenthralled forever from seotlbual despotism, and for a hundred years to come, as for sev ty years past, it will rule the North, not bv brute force or to plunder it, but by the moral forces of Democracy, and that enlightened r.tatemauship which, in sixty years, built tip the most maje-' tic and beneficent power ever witnessed in the world s history, and which wm: turned over to Abe Lincoln and bis merry men without ev,-r shedding one drop of fraternal blood or contracting a dollar of public debt.
