Til 18115; Richard Lawrence, a luna

President Jackson in the rotunda of

Partly Spirit;
We have published in full in"
another column an editorial from the
Mew York Journal of Commerce on
the above subject which we esteem
as so excellent that we hope it will
repay perusal on the part of our rend
ers. Party spirit has been the bane
of all communities in all ages. It
has embroiled Mexico with constant
revolutions and internal commotions;
it has lacerated England with the
bloody wars of the Roses; it has
caused France to reck with fratri
cidal strife and turmoil; and it is the
rock upou which America is in peril
of being stranded, unless reason re
surucB its sway over the mieds and
hearts of the people of all sections.
As the Journal of Commerce truly1
says, the crime of Guiteau is but the
natural fruit of the terrible spirit of
party, and we would add that it is
but the sj'mbol of the scenes in which
the rancor of this spirit, if indulged,
will finally engulf us.

The Mania for Ollice.
If any good may result from the
tragic scene so recently enacted at
Washington, we hope it 111113- be the
thorough ttivakeiiing of our people
tothe enormity of the tenible scourge
of the times, born of human selfish
ness and greed of gain, the miserable
mania for ollice. Mr. Tilucn very
wisely says that he hopes the at
tempted assassination, Which has
been so appalliug in its nature, may
have the eiltet of causing the people
to devise menus to chuck the terrible
evil of having IO?j?U? public oiliccs
put up at a graud raffle at the end 01
every Presidential election. The
effect must be demoralizing upon
individual and public morals and the
evil ought to be guarded against by
all good citizens, who desire to pro
mote the peace of the community
dud the stability of business. The
Chief Marshal at Washington says
that the place is infested iy swarm.-,
of ollice seekers and many of them,
like Guiteau, are religious fanatics
who believe that it is the will ol
Providence that they should have
something to do with the govern
if this army of ofUcc-scckcrs loaf
ing around \\ ashingtou Could be put
to work in our fields and workshops,
and be made to realize the force in
the decree "by the sweat of thy brow
t hou shall eat thy bread," a two fold
blessing would he experienced. In
the tinSt place, the nation would be
blessed in increased production, and,
in the second placcvihe individual*
would be blessed in the satisfaction
of feeling that they arc doing some
thing iu the world and arc contribut
ing to the happiness of felh.wnn rtri s.
Too many arc seeking the shade,
imagining that the bearing of the

The Koiid to Prosperity.
The New York Herald contains an
iuterview with Mr. C. C. Baldwin,
President of the Louisville and Nash
vi lie Rail Road system which, coming
as it does from a practical business
man, and from a northern man too,
whose prejudices may not eucourage
too favorable an admission for the
South, is full of interest, and gives a
bright view of the future of this sec
tion. Mr. Baldwin, who I as visited
every section of country and has tare
fully studied their commercial indus
tries, speaks from n purely commer
cial and not from a sentimental view.
He says, "1 made up my mind that
commercially, the South was the sec
tion of this nation that would show
the most rapid development during
the next deende." This development
is to be brought about by immigra
tion' railroads and commerce These
constitute our road to prosperity.
Politics is our bane. Intolerance of
opinion checks the tide of immigra
tion. But our people are learning
better souse. Patriotism does noi
build rail roads, and sentiment will
never make us rich. The resources
of the South are unlimited. Our
natural advantages far exceed those
of the North. The attention of the
world is being drawn to this beauti
ful section, and the'lay is not far dis
taut when the wealth of the Union
will be to a great extent transferred
from the North and East to the Jong
suffering South, if we are not (Lawn

The Latest from the JPresi
lie nt.
It will be gratifying to our readers
to know that President Garfield is
steadily improving. This is now the
eleventh day since lie was shot, and
great confidence is felt by his physi
cians that be will ultimately recover.
! At the same time lie is, by no means,
out of danger. All we can do is to
hope for the best.
I'ublic Instruction.
The Georgia Legislature is now
agitating the question of higher taxa
tion for educating the people, and the
Constitutionalist advises that the
fiiud be so increased as to keep the
public schools open six months, out
side of the local system.
The subject is a very important
one for our .State, ami we tbink the
people make a mistake in supposing
that higher taxation will be burden
some. We now educate our childreu
at private schools and pay the tax in
addition to the tuition. Why not
then save the tuition and pay all in
a just and uniform tax, and thus ele
vate the standard of public educa
tion.'' We throw out this thought for
Xhi people t) ponder upon care
fully. In the mean time there is a
practicable plan which every ccm
muuity can work upou. We arc glad
tliat it is meeting with favor in many'
parts of Orangeburg. The plan we
refer to is, to amalgamate the public
and private schools, by supporting
the teacher from the public fund as
many months as it will last, and, as
soon a6 it is ex h aimed, for the pat
rons to come to the rescue, and sup
port the teacher for the rest of the
full term. By this means we get back
the taxes and secure efficient teach
ers and good schools.
Another plan is the local tax sys
tem, which nil towns and thickly set
tled communities ought to adopt.
Now that the new school year will
soon com m c? cc, let the people taken
proper interest in the matter for the
good of their children and the coun
try. The public school system, as
now stands, could be made ti great
blessing, if parents in every com
munity would only co-operate with
the school officers. Let the matter
be done at once. We arc progress
ing in oLlier matters. Why should
wc be laggard in that which atlccts
the future happiness and prosperity
I of our loved ones?
Taxing Twice.
A correspondent from Orangeburg
brings to the attention of the Nows^A:.
Courier the injustice, under our pres
ent laws, of requiring taxes on both
real estate and the mortgage given
for it, which amounts todoulde taxa
tion. Wc brought this matter before
the public in an editorial during the
winter, wet hink during the session of
the Legislature. Under the present
syst.Mii, if a man buys h farm on time
for ijiiiUOO and gives n bond and niort
gage for jjtfiOOO for payment, faxes
arc collected on both for $12000. This
is a very had law and our next Leg
islature ought to rectify it nt once.
Hither the mortgage or the land
ought to be roleived of taxi's.
