K.J. Edwards. She has been suffering from bad health for n number of years, und for seve ral weeks past herrlomise has been daily expected. At last her frail sys tem has succumbed to the encroach ments of disease. On Monday bet spirit was released from its earthly tabernacle and ascended to the man sions prepared by her Saviour; and on Tuesday her body weis carried to Autioch and deposited by her daugh ter, who bad preceeded her to the grave many years before, ilvr cheer ful disposition, her attractive powers of conversation and the Christian graces which radiated front her life ?will long be remembered by the huge circle of friends, whose fortune it was to fall tinder her influence. Often accompanying her husband in bis ministerial labors ami visits, she enjoyed a sphere of usefulness in which a light was shed in her life and conversation which will be sorely missed, not only by the loved one she leaves behind, but by all who felt the genial rays of her Christian cha racter. Rut why should we mourn when the Christian dies ! The earth ly tabernacle, it is true, is dissolved, but the spirit has gone to take up its abode in that house not made with handsjcternal in the heavens. Til K WillTTATJ3P AFFAIR. The Committee appointed to inves tigate into the Whilakcr outrage :it West Point,an account of which has appeared before, have made a report, and they have decided from the evi dence, that Whitnker committed the outrage upon himself, and was feign ing that he was insensible at the time the Post Physician visited his from. "We regret this ofToir because W hi taker was n colored cadet and on that account the action of the Com mittee will be misconstrued. Rut the colored people will please remember thai this thing occurred at the North, and that the South had nothing to do with it. If West Point had been iu the South what a righteous wail would have gone up from the Radical saints! What n flutter would have been given to the bloody shirt! THE SPIRIT OF THE STATE CONVEN TION. There is nothiug more encouraging than the excellent spirit which per vaded the Democratic State Conven tion in Columbia this week. The order and decorum was perfect. There was not a jar from any source. A spirit of concession actuated every member. Tlie light on postponement was earnest ami ably conducted, but there was not the slightest exhibition of bad feeling. The minority, w hen defeated, after a most gallant light, bowed gracefully to the inevitable, and pledged a warm support of the action of the Convention. Nor .did any one exhibit this spirit more con spicuously than the dashing leaders of ICdgefield, Gary and Shcppard. The hitter, in an earnest speech, urged that Hampton and Mutier be sent to Cincinnati without a dissent ing voice and both he and Con. Gary voted for these gentlemen as well as for Ilngood for Governor. Such unanimity is .seldom seen in any body. Kvcrv vole in the Convention was east for Senntors)! I am pton and Rot ier, and for the gallant Ilngood, our next Governor. Ib V, IZLAK, 10K I'ltOHATE JUIltiE. f'tlit or Qrttngrliurg Tiniest: Tlie idea which is so urgently pressed, that tt lawyer is absolutely necessary for the office or Probate j dttdsro, is incorrect, and will not do to palm off on intelligent people. Thon- are some cases that come be fore the .lodge of Probate which re quire judicial knowledge, but this knowledge can he obtained by any one, from any attorney at law. Haven't the oHiebils of our County hired attorneys from whom they ob tain legal information, and if thoy haven't, they ought to have. Let them he lawyers or fanners, no man is per fect in the 'iaw. Rut the majority of cases in the Judge of Prolin to oflice required for their investigation, simply a man of educations one who understands business and legal terms, and an educated school teach er will make as good a Probate Judge, with the soivantages of hired legal lalletit, as a lawyer. The lamented Win. M. Hut son, one of the most scrupulously conscientious men that ever lived, in a public speech, while In* uus rutting for the office, said, thai w hile there were advantages in :i lawyer occupying the oflice, he was far from maintaining that i: was lltfccssary for a Lawyer to fill. Men who are not Lawyers, have success fully filled the oflice before, both in this County, awl in others. It is not fair to exclude any class. 1 do not propose to exclude the lawyer, but 1 don't believe in getting up a false idea, to exclude everybody else from this office. This is going to be the .argument used from now until the nominating Convention is over, to shut out anybody eise but a lawyer from this oflice, but it is not fair. Let the lawyers und other candidates who are competent to fill this oflice, stand on their own merit, and have equal chances. We do not believe in any one class or set of inch appro priating tin ofilce to themselves, nor do we believe in any one man hold ing nil oillce too long, or making his living by ofliee holding. 1". S. Grant to the contrary, notwithstanding. Turnabout is fairphiy. The oflice of Probate Judge should be filled by an honc'-d, decent, sober and inb liigcnt man and if. along with these qualities, we can get one who is of the people; who has never held olliee in his life, one wdio has never been over-anxious to hohl fYllice. but one who is willing tu accept, mid bow with humble sub mission to the honor conferred upon him by his friends, let us nominate him. Such n man is 1$. P. 1ZLAR. Quiet, unassuming and a commodat ing, he would make a most efficient and acceptable officer. No Moxoroi.v. CHICACrO. The news from this center of inter est where the Republican Convention is assembled does not look as much like a walk over for Ciesar as it first appeared. The Grntititos have held a caucus und the tactics seem tobe if Grant can't be nominated that they will concent rate on Kdmomls to- bent Rlaine and Sherman.
