he has relieved himself of the infamy of

some matter in the reminiaeenees he is
furnishing to the Chronicle, and saya that
Johnson's friends attempt to excuse his
oonduot in refusing eren to see Mrs. Sur

to beg far her mother's life, by alleging
that he war. drunk, and had been for
enil days; nnd that on the day prorlona

so thirst**1 for blood eight years ago that

who was not even regularly defended.
Now that her ghoit has forced Holt to
thus publicly wash his hands of her

clothes himself in the ashes and sack

We were concerned the -other day in
reading certain articles upon "Modern

of these “Modern Skeptics." Says the
writer of these article.:

The danger seems, perhaps, to warrant
an alarm which this writer affects when
he calls on ministers and churches to re
verse all present methods of operation or
prepare for a complete overthrow. Surely
the gnjpel* must look out for themselves,
and all their friends must be at their

pronounce the awful doom, and in one
sweeping sentence consign tho whole sys

Postal Money Orders.
Tho postal money order system was
introduced on a small scale in 1861, since
which time it has made a rapid growth
both in extent and in popular favor.
During the first year there were hut 141
money order offices in the United States,
and these issued only 74 *77 orders,
amounting in &11 to but $1,291,792 22.
Small as was this beginning it gave
evidence that the system would be a suc
cess, and led to its extension, which has
continued regularly np to this time,
when we find 3,000 money order offices in
existence, bringing the General Post-
office Department an amount of business
truly enormous. Glancing at the statis
tics we make out that for the year ending

United States 2,573,340 money orders,

Senator Morton, in a speech last week
delivered in Ohio, said:

fit representatives of the people, and
represent the people, especially in their
manners and morals. And while I

ry and character of oarfathen.1 am sure
I do them no injustice when I say that
the mass of the people of this country at
the present day are their superiors

Tried by the Senator's own “general
role” rh«r. “the public men are fit repre
sentatives of the people,” what sort of
people are we. measured by the public
men now in Congress? Is there any
man with sufficient hardihood to deny
that the Senators and Representatives
composing the Congress of the United
States are immeasurably below their pre
decessors of twenty years ago in intellec
tual and moral manhood ? Is not the low
standard of personal and political morals
among Congressmen—their vulgarity,
profligacy and venality a matter of uni
venal recognition among the people?
But Morton goes on to boast that “ hu-
an righto” arc now better understood
and the great wickedness and dangers of
human slavery are more clearly perceived
than they used to be, and theso moral
attainments, in his comprehension as wc
suppose, offset all. other acknowledged
delinquencies. Congressmen may sell
their rotes, plunder the Treasury and vi
olate every obligation to God and their
country with impunity, so long os they
“understand human rights and the hor-
of slavery." That is the sacred
text—the shibboleth which passes a Rad
ical Congressman to glory, although his
public and private life may violate all
tho obligations of patriotism, honor and

Mr. Stephens on the Third Term
Business, “Ciesnrism,” etc.
A reporter for tho New York Herald
has recently been down in Georgia in
search of Mr. Stephens, whoso opinion on
the above points was sought. Ho found
Mr. S. at Gainesville and straightway
proceeded to business. After declaring
hat ho was opposed to tho policy of a
third term for anybody os President, Mr.
K. replied as follows to tho query of tho
reporter as to what he thought would be
the effect of Grant's re-election in 1876
upon the institutions of tho country—
whether it would result in imperialism:
Mr. Stephens—Well. I don't think
there is much in that. I havo lately read
a great deal in the papers under the head
of “Caemrism” which might just as well
have been called “Dunriadfam.” By
Cesarism I suppose is meant imperial
ism, or the overthrow of the Federal
Union of the States and the establish
ment of a consolidated empire instead: I
do not thing General Grant’s election to
a third term would have any effect upon
the institutions of the country in this
ct, different from that which hi
second has had. especially if he
should confine his exercise of the execu
tive powers within the same limits here
after as heretofore. Cssarism does not
consist of who is in the Executive chair,
itor how long, but in how tho Govern
ment is administered. Csesarism and im-
lerialism consist in a disregard by the
Executive of the checks and limitations
of tho constitution, and tho grasping
by usurpation, in the hands of one. the
powers of any of the other two depart
ments of the government — the legis
lative and judiciary. There can bo no
Cirsariim or imperialism in this country
no long as the “trinity in unity” of the
constitution is preserved, that is, so long
ns the three great separate and indepen
dent departments—the executive, legis
lative and the judiciary—axe maintained
intact in their co-ordinate relations with
each other, so for as the delegated pow
ers of the general government are con
cerned ; nor can there be anything like a
consolidated singlo republic in this coun
try, which is not much less dangerous
than Cssarism itself, so long as the rights
of the separate States, constitutionally
reserved and secured, are respected and
left inviolate. The greatest danger.- in
my opinion, which now threatens tho lil>-
-erties of this country is just that which
tho framers of the constitution so care
fully gnored against; that is. a consoli
dation of all the separate and distinct
smaller republics, as Rome was consoli
dated. This result would most cen. only,
in my opinion, lead to tho establishment
of an empire, and as surely end in Cssar
ism in tins country os it did in Rome.
Reporter—But do you think that is
just what General Grant is aiming at?
Mr. Stephens—No; I srill do General
Grant the justice to say that I have not
aeon any evidences from him of any such
wish or desire; not a hundredth part as
much as I havo seen from the course of
those malcontent republicans, who style
themselves liberals, who have fallen out
with General Grant, and who have lately
raised such a hue and cry against his
Cmrarism—so-called. If General Grant
has ever violated any law I am not aware
of it. The greatest objection I have to
him is his rigid enforcement of the very
had kwg which- these malcontent repub
licans were mainly instrumental in carry
ing through Congress—some of them by
fraud and perfidy, as well as usurpation.
I think General Grant utterly demolished
Mr. Trumbull’s arraignment of him in
New York, at the opening of the canvass,
in one sentence. As the matter was rela
ted to me, some friend, feeling greatly
aggrieved at Mr..Trumbull’s denuncia
tions, went to General Grant, supposing
he, too. would be somewhat incensed at
but! with that impcrturablo temper
so characteristic of him, he replied : “I
don't know what Mr. Trumbull finds so
much fault with me for; I have done
nothing but execute his own laws!”
This coven tho whole ground. The free
institutions of this country can much bet
ter‘be maintained by changes in the
members of the House and the Senate
than by any limitation upon the term of
the Executive office. Usuipation of pow
er by the Executive in interfering in any
way with' the legislative or judicial de
partments is what marks and dfatin-
I pushes the Casar, and not the number of
1 crxns to which he may ho elected. What
the people of this country should now
most closely watch and guild against is
tiie sanction of usurpation in any depart
ment of the government, either in the
executive, legislative or judicial. The'
liberties of this country do not depend
upon who governs or how long; but how
they govern. Cjcsarfam, as I said, does
not consist in the length of time that the
Chief Executive may hold office, but
the manner in which he discharges
the duties of it. The constitution
wisely limits the term, so that any in
cumbent shall be responsible to the Col
lege* of Electors of the State! every four
years, as members of the House of Repre
sentatives are totheir proper electors every
two years and Senators to theirs every
six years. The same principle applies to
all these. I do not regard the example
of Washington and the earlier Presidents

Ren. rhino to the many violations of
the laws of the Georgia Press Association
concerning advertising rates by tho mem
bers thereof, the Griffin Star well says :
One of the most damning evils of the
press is the want of courage on tho
part of its members to conduct their busi
ness on strict business principles. They
can’t bo brought to understand that moro
money can bo made by adhering to fair
and honorable prices for their work.
This evil has sent more newspaper men
to the grave poor and penniless than any
other. The idea seems to be to work at
rates, do a great deal of work and
—lore money / We believe we can speak
advisedly, after nearly a quarter of a cen
tury’s connection with the pre», when
we assert that smaller papers, with fewer
well-paid for advertisements bring far
better returns to the toiling patient pub
lishers. In our earlier career, it was our
misfortune to bo imbued with the idea
that cheap printing was the way to mako
money; and it was not until we had the
courage to establish a fair schedule of
rates for advertising, and to “ stick to
them,” that we saw the impolicy of the
old policy. Wo lost patronage or ration

Pick, Pack and Sell Eablt.—The
planter cannot afford to hold his crop on
speculation. It is not only a matter of
compulsion, but it is to his interest to
pick, pock and sell Ins cotton as rapidly
as it opens. Rings do not take shape till
the receipts begin to indicate the general
crop, and consequently the stealing pres
sure is not so great far the first sixty
days of the season, as it is after that
iod. The planter who first gets out
cotton and first puts it upon the mar
ket, is like the early bird, and fattens on
his industry and judgment. Staple and
color are uninjured by the weather;
weights are better, and nine times out of
ten the price is fifteen to thirty per cent,
more satisfactory. *Thesc are some of the
reasons why, upon general principles, we

piled, and on the other Major Homo and

Columbia, August 27.—The Supreme
Court to-day filed its decision in tho Mor

petitioners asked that a mandamus be is

to levy a tax to pay tho interest on cer
tain State bonds held by them. The

opinion, of which tho following is tho con
“It is adjudged and ordered that a writ

Tho opinion, which covers 115 pages of
legal cap paper, was dflivered by Judge
Willard, and concurred in by Chief Jus
tice Moses and Judge Wright.
Commenting upon this "startling de
cision,” the News says:
“By it the Comptroller is directed to fix
the rate of taxation necessary to raise a
sum sufficient to pay the arrears of inter
est on the five bonds sued upon. Bat, we
suppose, this is intended to settle the
point that was in dispute as to the power
or duty of tho Comptroller to fix the rate
of taxation, without an express direction
from tho Legislature. By what process
of reasoning the court has arrived at this
conclusion, can be only matter of conjec
ture, until We seo the opinion, winch is
said to cover one hnndrcd and fifteen pa
ges of legal cap. A result so contrary to
the general and well-considered opinion
of the Bar of the State, cannot but strike
our people with amazement, even in these
days of strange and startling things.
When the opinion is published we will be
in a better position to judge whether
something may yet be done by legislative
or judicial action to rescue the people
from the collection of this minotm tax.
We say ruinous, because if the principle
is once established, it will he applied to

Horrible Outrage in Mexico.
From tbe Brownsville Banehero, input IS.]
A small party of immigrants passed
through this city a few weeks since cn
route for Tnrpan, Mexico. In the party
were a number of ladies and several girls
thirteen or fourteen years of age. They
were well fitted out with good teams anil
wagons, and, in fact, everything requisite!
for their perilous journey.
It now becomes our painful duty to

Boston, August 30.—A summary of
the result? of the ward elections for dele-

Deluding Boston, shows tho election of
111 Butler, to 33 Washburno delegates.
Tho Daily Advertcr says Republican
cancusos wero held last night in larger
cities and towns where Butler men have
control of the local organizations and
where there was a reasonable prospect of
electing Bntlcr delegates. The intention
obviously wa3 to show tho strength at tho
beginning in the hope of getting recruits
among tho wavering elsewhere, whs may
bo waiting to seo which side fa strongest
in Boston. It was their intention to carry
every ward, except two or three at most,
and they made estimates accordingly.
Large as the caucuses were, the Butler
Republicans were weakened, 03 was '• well
known they would be, by tho ^absence of
a largo number from town, many more
than enough in several wards to have
changed the rtenlt. That the opposition
was able to elect delegates in four of the
16 wards fa, under the circumstances,, the
best that could be expected.
The Journal remarks, as far as this
city is concerned, the result docs, not
come np to Butler’s anticipations.. The
authorities on the best side had given
out.. They were perfectly sure of carry
ing all but three wards, while they hoped
to make a clean sweep of the city dele
gation. To this end they laid their plans
some time ago, laid them skillfully, and
srosecutod them without the least regard
* expense or fairness.
The Post says Gen. Butler’s friends
were out in full force, and in some of the
wards there was hardly a show of respec
table opposition to his pretensions, while
in others it was a strong fight and a de
rided victory. 'Whenever an opportunity
offered the cat and dried programme was
carried through with a rush, but occa
sionally there was entered a vigorous pro
test against the action of hfa friends, and
especially was this tho case in the tenth po:r
ward. Upon the whole, the adherent; --f
