I heard a good, thrifty, old farmer
remark, yesterday, that he bad come
from home, about five miles, with four
bales of cotton to cell, he expected to
hurry through aud get back home by
noou, but upon arriving at tho Com
press he found it Simon Impossible to
get his cotton weighed, as thcro was a
perfect rush of wagon?, aud etch one
bad to (lie his way in and tako his turn,
thereby keeping the farmer over two
hours to get his certificate. I do not
ay that the weigher or any oue was to
blame, but (Ms same farmer iuforrued
me that the main cause of the delay
was that tome merchant or buyer had
rushed iii and demanded or got his cot
ton weighed. It teems that thcro
should he tome remedy for this wetri
tome delay, as we know it rauit be, to
a planter who has traveled miles to set
his cottou to market, cam n ue &r
ranged in some way to givo the farmer

In a few weekt hence our Legisla
ture will meet in general session, and
from time to time between this and the
date of its convocation, we desire to
lubmit, for the consideration of Its
members, some suggestions as to cer
tain alterations and amendments which
we think desirable to be made In our
existing statutes. A the members of
the incoming Legislature have, to a
v. ry considerable extent, been chosen
Ircsh from (he great body of our peo
ple, it Is to be brped that measures of
general public interest and utility will
engago their attention, and that valua
ble time will not be frittered away iu
tho (liKiission of uiclcis legislation,
ami the lutherance of tchraes ol pii
vtc enterprise aud periuntl aggrandizement.
We dctiro in this article to consldor
the existing laws and their bearings
upou one class of our public officials
our District Attorneys and to deter
mine what change, if any, ought
to be mado In relation thereto.
It is known that under the
present tyitem these officers are
paid a staled sal ry, and allowed cer
tain pcrquistes, or fee, for each con
viction, to be paid by tbe defeudants.
In all felonlot, and for violations of the
gaming and whisky laws, a foe of 115
Is taxed for the use of tbe Dhtrlct At
torney, and in all other cases a thnilar
fee of f 10 is Imposed for his benefit as
apartot tbe ponalty Inflicted. It U
this feature ol tbe law which we think
especially objectionable and that ought
tobe wiped from our Code. The Interests
of tho public would be greatly sub
served, in our judgment, by the pay
ment to these officers of a staled salary
sufficiently remunerative to compen
sate them for the Important duties tbey
are called upon to perform, and the
uttor abolition of this false and Iniqui
tous perquisite system, in so far at least
ai it is made a source of revenue to the
ofllcors themselves. To make a good
and thoroughly efficient prosecutor,
the officer should be placed Iu a por
tion of perfect ease and Independence.
Is this the case under tbe preseut law ?
It Is well-known that the only flues
that are ever oollected, with rare ex-
ceptlonr, are those which are Imposed
for violations of tbe several gaming
and wbtsky laws for parlies charged
with felonies and tho graver crlmot, as
rule, belong to tho poorer classes ol
society, and soldom, if ever, have any
property out of which the Sheriff ctn
collect tbe Quo and costs, and it i there
fore to tho first class of cases to which
the District Attorney mutt look for bU
fees. The fines in such cases ar; re
quired to bo paid into tho Treasury far
tbebcneUt of tho ct.ool fund, aud if
these laws wero proporly enforced,
they would b .'coino tho source ot con
siderable revenue to tho State, but some
District Attorneys are no: di-pusod to
prest thee milters lr.ni','!y upon Ihu
attention of Grand Junir.',foril'thy do
tbey render ihiMii-ulvv, obnoxious to
the criticism t h it tlit y arr nut uctnited
so much by a de-ire to h.mi tho iw en
forced, as by the hop.) of rftwtrd whlh
they txpect in the way ol Ice. We
iudeed havti hoard thi vry chartfe
brought against District Attorneys in
our lime, ir tney were i'tiu
stated salary, however, and occupied
position where no inch crit
icism could reach, aud uo such coui Jr-
atlons Influence them, there would
be nothing to deter them from the thor
ough and conscientious ll-char;a P
their ofuciiil duties. These viewtuiej
intended, however, to apply !o Inn o:,
class of those officer, for tli'iio U.n:
other cliis with less del fcacy and sen
sibility than the firmer, who aro dis
posed to neglect other for moro impor
tant matter?, in order that tlicy may
gather tho emoluments to be derived
from tho prosecution and conviction ol
persons charged with these minor of
fenses. Indeed wo have heard of one
District Attorney who made it a single
term of Court in oue of the interior
counties of tbe State, more thin seven
hundred dollars. Mow, in tbe amend
ment which we suggest, we would
have this money go into the Treasury,
wbero it belongs, rather than Into the
District Attorneys' pocket. We have
no doubt that this chango in the law
would bo strenuously opposed by tome I
of these officers, becauso tney make
more money uudcr tbe fee system thau
tho salary would amount to which the
Legislature might see fit to allow, but
in our dlscusslou of the questiou wo
are not considering it so much as a
matter of pecuniary advantage to the
officer as of interest lo the pooplo at
large.
Wo would on the one band raise
these official above all temptation to
uiethe'r office for private gain, and
on tbe other hand save them from tbe
suspicion of io doing.
A to what salary should be attached
to the office, we will jot advance an
opinion, further than to say, that we
think It ought to be sufficiently remu
nerative to command the lerrlce of
experienced lawyer. This office we
regard a one of the most.lmportant In
our Stair, and to discharge Its respon
sible dalle in a meritorious and be
coming manner require Industry and
ability of no mean order. The District
Attorney has the talent and experi
ence of tbe entire Bar of his District to
combat, and Is called npn almost
dally to measure iword with tbe ablest
lawyers io tbe field of forensic dis
cnsslon, end shrewd and astute must
he be, not lo sink under the heavy
blow they are uro to Inflict and he
certain to receive.. We feel fully per
suaded that such change in the existing
laws as wa havehereiu Indicated, would
result beneficially to the State. The
whole system of allowing perquisites
to officers In criminal prosecutions, we
believe to be founded In error, to be
false In theory, and vicious in practice,
and we trust tho law-making power
will take tbe matter in band and oblit
erate the wholo fee system by appro
priate legislation. Let us pay our DIs
trlct Attorneys regular salaries for
their services, aud we will find, In tbe
end, that tbe Slate will realize a decided
benefit from ibe change, not only In a
pecuniary point of view, but in the
more thorough and complete efficiency
of her public prosecutor.

Some complaints have been made
against Governor Stone for the respite
of four week of tho negro Waller
liil-y, whoe execution wa fixed for
i he Oih clay of November, and whose
life was prolonged by the arrival of tbe
re-pite an hour or two before tbe bang

sure that those who have complained
are not aware of tbe circumstances un
der whloh the Governor acted In grant
ing the respite. On Thursday, tbe 8th of
November, one day before tbe time
fixed for the execution, Gov. Stone
received at Iuka, where he had gone to
cast Ids vote, the following telegram
transmitted to him by hi Private Bee
