An Independent View of the Political Complication tNordiqff in the N. Y. Ilerald] It will be remembered that the aofce of United States Marshal is always a political office, the reward of partisan services ; that the deputy marshals for election purposes are therefore sure to be partisans, and that ,in fact, the law authorizes the party in power in every city of 29,000 or more inhabitants to ap point any number of its followers deputy marshals and pay the $50 apiece out of the publie treasury for their partisan servicep. It is not an extravagang Atatemdit on the part of the Democrats, therefore, to say that this deputy marshal law eu, ables the party in power to pay its canvassers very handsomely out of general tuxes. On the whole the Supervisor law seems to be a very small matter for either par...

He cares nothing for differences of political creeds. He is not troubled about defining the several casts of society, and is, I think, the only specimen of humanity who really does not ex purience antagonisma of race. Hence, it is common in your section, to see sportsnl intin,ate and huuting w ith the red-skin, and here it is equally common to go hunting with the black-skin.

( Mom the News and Courier.] The expectation is that at tho'April term of the United States Court, which begins next Monday week, in Charleston, a largen umber of cases growing out of the elections of 1878 will be tried. There are, to begin with, the cases which were continued, or resulted in a mistrial, at the last term of the Court. There will be some now cases, and it will not be forgotten that, with many offences under the Election laws, the District Attorney can proceed "by informa tion,' it is called, and need not submit the indictments to the grand jury. Charleston, Colleton, Hampton, -Sumter, Barnwell, Or angeburg, Richland, Aiken and Georgetown will be represented, it is believed, and perhaps other coun ties.
