* We feel that a statement of ti:e
attitude of our candi1ates for the
General Assembly towards the
State University and the lien law,
as alrea'dy declared b)y themselves,
will not prove uninteresting.
Mr. Sligh, candidate for the Sen
ate, thinks. that the institution
whicb goes by the name of the
"South Carolina University," is not
in fact a university, but is simply a
college in competition with the de
nominational colleges of the St'

He thinks that the reason which
originally called for the enactment
of the lien law no longer eists,
and he is, therefore, in favor of the
repeal of that law. He opposes 'ho
law principally on acount of the
high rate of interest that is often
exacted under its operations,
Mr. Pope. candidate for the
House, would not be opposed to a
real university, fif the State could
support one, but he will not vote an
appropriation to the present "so,
sled' University. Ills view of
the Constitutional provision is sim
Ilar to that of Mr. Bligh.
Hre is in favor of the repeal of thme
lien law. HIe thinks that the law
L bas, from the time of its enaictinept,
been a cnrse to ont peopis apd a
disgrace to our statute books.
Mr. Schumpert, eandidate for the
House, will feel bonnd to vote an
appropriation to the State Unilver
sity as long as the ConstitiLtion di.
rpets that the "General Assembly
sall provide for its maintenance."
The niversity gow in existene
was the only one in existence whmen
the Constitution was adopted, and
the Constitution must refer to that
r.institution. IIe is williIng, how
ever, to refer it to the people,
nbiIue ~th Coaditatlon shall be
altered. in this particular. He is
in favor of the repeal of the lien
We have not heard Mr. Hardy,
candidate for the House, declare
his pinions on these subjects, but
we think that he is opposed to
both the university and the lien
It is likely that our repre.enta
&ives will have an opportunity-to
make themselves heard on these
questions, at the next meeting of
the General Assembly.
THE STATE HOUSE AND THE
We wonder if our next Legisla
ture will have the time and the will
to take into cousideration the com
pletion of the State House. We
think it about time for this matter
to be acted upon, and !before the
buildings fall into greater decay.
We have but little hope of a con
summation so devoutly wished,
still we throw out a hint. Too
much time is wasted in matters of
little importance, and it is time
one of such moment be thou;:ht of.
In saying, last we(k, tiat the
primary canvass in oar cou:ty b:d
not been managed at all, we meant
no reflection upon the Executive
Committee. It has not been re
garded as one of the duties of that
committee to manage the canvass.
We hope that the next canvass
will be managed and that the Ex
ecutive Committee will appoint a
meeting at each voting precinct in
the county, in order that the peo
ple may bear . the candidates
and the candidates may meet
the people -without going to in
numerable barbecues for that pur
pose. We think, too, that there
should be an appointed time for the
opening of the primary canvass.
Even "linked sweetness" may be
too long drawn out.
If we had our way, and it is a for
tunate thing that we have not, there
would be only one box at each pre
cinct, and all the officers would be
voted for on one ticket. The tickets
would, of course, have to be printed
Cleveland's letter of acceptance
contains many elements of strength.
It is marked by brevity, concise
ness, clearness, and manliness. The
sentences go straight to the mark,
and the document does not at
any point betray an inclination to
dodge the leading issues of the
day. Whbat we most heartily ap
prove in the letter is the sugges
tion the constitution should be so
amended as to r'-nder it impossi
ble for the President to be his own
successor. Until that is done, we
shall hope' in vain for practical and
beneficial civil service reform. So
long as the President hopes to suc
ceed himself, he will use the presi
destial patronage for personal and
'political ends, and the one hundred'
thousand place-men who hold office
by his appointment and at his will
must obey his behests.
We -state', .as a matter of infor

ALBaxy, N. Y., Augu.t 19.-The
fol'owing letter was received to-day by
Col. Lamont, Secretary to Governor
Cleveland, who is at upper Saranac
Falls, with instruction to make it pub
lie on its receipt :
ALBANY, N. Y.. August 1S, 1,84.
GENTLF%ir:. I have received your
communlication tiated July 18t h, 1834,
informing me of my nomination to the
office of President of the United States
by the Natio al Democratic Conven
tion lately aesembled at Chicago. I
accept the nomination with grateful
appreciat ion of the supreme honor con
ferred and a solemn sense-of the re
spothsibility which in its acceptance I
1 have carefully considered the plat
form adopted by the Convention and
cordially approve the same. S > plain

inee for that office h.Ls outline i:s pol
icy and declared its principles, it seems
to me that nothing in the character of
the office or the necessities of the ease
requires more from the can(lidate ac
cepting such nomination than the sug
gestion of certain well known truths
so absolutely vital to the safety and
welfare of the nation that they cannot
be too often recalled or too seriously
enforced. We proudly call ours a gov
ernment 6f the people. It is not such
when a class is tolerated which arro
gates to itself the management of pub
lie affairs, seeking to control the peo
ple instead of representing them. Par
ties are the necessary outgrowth of
our institutions, but the government
is not - by the people when one party
fastens its control upon the country
and perpetuates its power by eajoling
and betraying the people instead of
serving them. Government is not by
the people when the result which
should represent the intelligent will of
free and thinking men is or can be de
-termined by tire- shameless' corrup
tion of their suffrages. -
When an election to office shall be
the selection by'. the voters of one of
their -number to assume for the time n.
public tr.;st, instead of his dedication to
a profession of policies when the hold
ers of the ballot, quickened by a sense
of duty, shall avenge truth betrayed
and pledges broken, and when the
suffrage shall be altogether free and
uncorrupted, a full realization of the
government by the people will be at
hand. And of the meana to this end,
not one vould in my judgment be
more efective than an amendment to
the Constitution di-qualifying the
President from re-election. Wheu.we
consider the patronage of this great
oflice, the allurements of Its. powers,
the temptation to retaini pulblic place
on1ce gained, andl, more than all, the
availability a party tindls in an incunm
bent whom bor-des, with zeal born of
benefits received and fostered by hope
of favors yet to come', stand ready to
dild with money and trained political
service, we recognize in the-eligibility
of the President for re-electiori a most
serious datnger to that calm, deliberate
andl intelligent political action which
must characterize the government by
A true A merican sentinetnt recog

employed shall alike be subservient
and the proaperity of the eQnn-try, thles
common heritage of both, be advanced..
As melated .to. this subject, while we.
should not discourag~e the itmmigrat ion
of those who conic to acknowledge al-'
ieghit:ce to our government and add
to our citizen popnition, yet as a
means of. protection to our working

CULTURE IN THE COTTONSTATES
From the Columbia Register.
The Journal of Education, u weekly pub- t
lished at l!oston, contains in a recent num
her an' interesting article from Rev. J. E.
Bushnell, of Prosperity, S.C., on "Cultare in
the Cotton States.".' Mr. Bushnell has of
late, in .several readable articles, shown a
,ommendale desire to advance the moral
nd inteliectual Interests of our people. He
tays of our schools:
The echaols of the Cotton StatCs incline
to the use of the rod when necessity, which
knows no law, demands; btnt it is a mistake
to suppose that nialt boys arc pitched bead
long out " t our school house window-,or
that book, are thrown recklessly at thick- ]
headed pupils. Good order is the rle. ]
The tendency of education is turning in
favor of p-<ctical training. Manual traifhing
is sure to conie We need scientfic'farmers '
who can raise a hale to the -acre upon an av
rage, ata ninimum cost. We need skilled.
labor..'We aced industrial education of a
igr order. Directive, intelligwnre is the de
ma'nd non ; but the mass of our teachers
mn-;t be taught in these things. Carelessness

The aristocratic pr-ecnsions, which are noh
