At this meeting of the Board of Trade,
vice-President WALTER said, among other
It is only necessary to look at the alarm
ing increase of the debt of the State, and
the reckless expenditure which has marked
the history of the State for tho past five
years, to satisfy us?t once, that, as tax-pay
ers, we are bearing a burden too grievous
to be borne and which must inevitablv re
sult in bankruptcy and ruin. It means
confiscation, and there are those who do not
hesitate to announce that such is the pur
pose. We are to be taxed out of our prop
The Hon. GEORGE A. TRENHOLM also up
held the Resolutions in a strong and earn
est speech. The Resolutions are manly
and straight-forward, containing nothing
of hostility to the government. Mr. TREN
HOLM concluded his speech thus :
It may well be doubted if tho entire gross
annual income of the people from all sources
amounts to $20.000,000. Of this sum, what
is expended in the payment of wages con
tributes nothing to tho public resources
from the remainder. The monstrous pro
portion of $4.000,000 is demanded for taxes
in a sin ?lo vear-82,000,000 for tho current
year, and ?2,000,000, by anticipation, for the
year 1S72. Every virtuous and patriotic
man in the country, of every party, upon a
calm consideration of the unhappy condi
tion of our suffering people, will admit the
magnitude of our grievances, and tho pa
tience and moderation of our conduct. It
is to them, to our countrymen, that we ap
neal for sympathy and support in the ef
fort to savo ourselves from ruin. I have
no fears of the results of this appeal, and I
give my hearty support to the resolutions.
Let us hold a public meeting for the con
sideration ol' the Tax question, and for the
further purpose of co-operating with our
neighbors in the premises.
Here aro the Resolutions :
Whereas, Under the operation of the pres
ent State Government, the majority of the
property-holders and taxpayers of the State,
from whom the public revenue is mainly
derived, are excluded from any power in
thc legislation of the State, and irom any
practical influence in the imposition of
And, whereas, Thc moneys raised by tax
ation are improvidently and corruptly used
and expended by persons who hold office
under the State government, and tho sums
appropriated for alleged public uses are ex
cossive and extravagant ;
And, whereas, The credit of the State has
been pledged illegally, and it is now pro
posed to pledge tho credit of tho State for
further loans, by a new issue of bonds,
which m'av be negotiated iu the market to
persons who may "take them, itt ignorance

1. Resolved, That we, the property-hol
ders and taxpayers of the State, residing in
the City ol' Charleston, do herebv deem it
mr duty to declare that the bonds hereto
fore issued without legal sanction, and the
iOrcalled sterling loan,;pr any other bonds
>r obligations hereafter issued to be under,
iud by virtue of thc authority of this State,
will not bc held binding on tis, and that we
shall; in every manner and at all times, re
;j,st the payment thereof, or the enforce
ment of any tax to pay the same, by all le
gitimate means within our power.
2. Resolved, That we deem it our duty to
warn all persons not to receive, by way of
purchase, loan or otherwise, any bona or
obligation hereafter issued, purporting to
bind the property or pledge the credit of
: he State; and that all such bonds or obli
gations will bc held by us to be null and
void, as having been issued corruptly, im
providently, and for fraudulent purposes,
?md in derogation of the rights of that por
ion of the people of this-State upon whom
.he public burdens are made to rest.
3. Resolved, That the taxpayers of the
State are hereby requested to meet in their
respective comities for the consideration ol'
;iiis subject, and the enormous tax levies
?f the current year, and for thc appoint
ment of two delegates to represent oach
.ounty in a State Convention, to be held in
Columbia on thc second Tuesday in May
next, for the same purpose.
4. Resolved, That this State Convention of
Taxpayers be requested to confer with his
Excellency, the Governor, on the danger
ous fiscal condition of thc State and request

Rev. R. P. Davies, a Methodist Minister
of the Little ROCK Conference, was murdered
by a man named Boyd, near Lewisville, Ark.,

says some little dispute had arisen between
them in the morning, but had been amicably

Boyd's house to dinner. Starting home
after dinner, Boyd accompanied him a short

various other injuries, as well as for dysentery, dlarrhor-p.
and bowel complaints generally, lt is rdmlrshly guiled
for every race of men on the face or the globe.
It is u very significant fact, that notwithstanding the
long period of years that tho "Pam Killer" has been
boforo the world, it has never lost ono whit of lu popu
larly, but, OD the contrary, tho call for lt has steadily
Increased fr#n its first dUcoverv, and at no prevloas
time has tho demand for it been so great, or the
quantity made boen so large, as it ls to-day.
Another signiflcaat fact Is, that nowhere ha? the Pain
Killer ever boon In higher repute, or been morcgeneral
ly used by fs milles and Individuals, luau lt bas been
here at borne, where It was first discovered and intro
duced. That thc Pain Killer will continue to bo, what
we have styled it, TUE OUEAT MKOICINK OP TUE VORLO,
there cannot bo the shadow of a doubt-[Providence
Cheering FactB for the Bilious.
Ever)* day demonstrates more clearly that liver com
plaint, In all its distressing ioma, can be controlled and
anrod wlihout difficulty or inconvenience. Ilia an ob
stinate disease, but its obstinacy Is not proof against tho
pertinacious, remedial and restorative operation of
Hosteller's Blomaoh Bitters. That jenial corrective
compel* the organ to do itt dirty. It muH jccrete
regularly and healthfully under the Influence of the Rit
iera Their action brings it back from natale of rebel
lion into perfect .rmony with the laws of health. If
Ibero is costiveness, lt disappears; If there is side-ache
or back-ache, lt ceases; If the skin and ihe whiles
at the eyes are fmged with superfluous bile, thcy
rc. ' their natural hue; If the nppcllto Is gone,
lt rc .ns; if the dlgostion ls Impaired, H ls restored; In
brief, whatever tho symptoms of the complaint may bo,
ami whatever the phase lt has assumed, a cure it cer
tain. Such aro tho uuifbrm e?ects of this preparation
where bllllous disease has been already developed ; but
In cases where lhere is merely a constitutional tendency
lo liver complaint, lt may bc prevented throughout lift,
by the regular use, In small quantities, of this palatable
smlidote. These are proven facts, and should be serious
ly pondered-or, rather, they should bo promptly ^tei
upon-by all persons of bilious habit.
