We print this morning Gov. 3 af vis'i
inaugural address. Tho document is j
eminently .cliiracteristic of t!ie man
Throughout it indicates the fine com-:'
mon sense of its author and the emi-i
nently practical turn of bis mind. Svtf J
opine that no considerable portion of
our people will dissent from , the posi
tions ;w,tych the new Governor takes in
reference tlo such public affairs as he
touches upon, and the suggestions which
he lays before the General Assembly!
Those suggestions relating to the adj
ministration of Justice and to the dis
position of the 1 convict labor of1 1
State are especially deserving considtraj
tkm ; not less so those . in reference to
the construction of railways, the .law,.
of trade and the duty of the people to
patronize home markets; And his decla
ration that shippers should seek a port on
our own coast when theycan get as good
terms there asby a route tending Ho
build tip cities outside the Stated will
meet with as cordial response from the
people geneydc from The
Observer. It will tie observed that that
Governor, puts the case upon its merits,
however, and makes shipment through
home ports contingent upon their facili
ties for supplying the'piiblic's demands.
We eom'mehil hid excellency's inaugu
ral, to the perusal fit the people v Gov
Jarvis begins his adaumsitration auspi
ciously, and we have not a doubt that in
the executive chairne , will bear hinji
self as becomes a true man and a patri
otic Carolinian... We never thought him

The Senate finance committee took
final action upon' the House bill amend
atery of the internal revenue laws, and
authorized the chairman to report it to
the Senate. The committee, by" five
against four, decided to recommend
concurrence in the House provision re
ducing the tax on manufactured tobac
co to sixteen cents per pound. The
committee fixed the tax on snuff at 24
cents and struck out all provisions rela
tive to the tax on cigars, cherroots and
cigarettes, thus proposing to leave them
subject to taxation at existing rates.
The House provision repealing the tax
on matches is stricken out and the
committee have also entirely omitted
the tobacco bonded warehouse clause.
The bill is further amended by the ad
dition of a section to remit all taxes up
on insolvent savings banks and to ex
empt from taxation 62,000 of each de
posit, made by one person or association
in any savings institution.

West, of Columbia, S C. He was secret
tary of the Republican State executive
committee, and as such officer he had
correspondence with the Republicans of
each county as to the nomination of
Republicans to serve as commissioners
of election. He took the list to the ex
ecutive office. Gov. Hampton was ab
sent but he was told by the Governor's
private secretary that the matter of the
appointment was with Gen. Kennedy,
the president of the Democratic Stale
executive committee. There were thirty
two counties in the State, and thirty
two Republicans, one lor each, were re
commended for appointment. Only six
or seven pronounced Republicans were
appointed, though the Governor had
promised to do so before tb.6 list was
presented. Many of those appointed to
act for the Republicans were Demo
crats, others were under Democratic in
fluence, while others were illiterate nun
and therefore unfit to represent any
party. Protests were unavailingly made
against such appointments. :

inquired whether Governors Moses and
