unteers, captured by our regiment at
Franklin, on the 30th inst. The eur
vivora of the 07th meet at Zmesville,
Ohio, on that day to receive their flag,
and I wish you, as one of the parties
immediately concerned in its capture,
to bear it to them in my name and
in behalf of the 24th South Carolina
Volunteers. They T?ave sent me the
most cordial invitation, and extended
the same to any repreacntative of the
24th whom I may designate.
It will be impossible for me to go
to Zanesville, and as I particularly
wish some one of the regiment to
represent it on sr* interesting an oc
casion, I knew of no one more suit
able than yourself, who, with the gal
lant Tillman, Anderson, Walls, J. E.

colors of the Ohioans from the. hands
of their flagman. If it is necessary
for this purpose that you should ob
tain a leave of absence for a few days
from the sessions of the Legislature,

readily accord it to you especially as

The New Tux Bill Killed.
The tax bill was taken up but its
consideration had only been resumed
for a few minutes when Senator Kirie,
of Sumter, moved to strike out its en
acting clause. He maintained that it
was inquisitorial, that its provisions
seemed designed to reflect upon the
honesty of the taxpayers, that it was
complicated and did not simplify ex
isting laws, and that it was unneces
sary in a State which paid OS per
cent, of its taxes. In order to save
several days of useless consideration,
he made the motion to kill at this

Senator Smy the said that the bill n
was no child ol his. He objected to a
its provisions and if they were not si
changed would vote against the bill C
on its final reading. He did not like v
some features which had been termed
' inquisitorial." But there were o'her ti
features which commended themselves fi
to his judgment and which he should a
like ta see adopted. He thought that c
it would be unfair to the framer.-; of a
the bill, who had done their work d
very carefully, and unwise for vf rions li
reasons to kill the bill before the o
Senators had had time to examine it h
and improve it. - tl
Senator Earle said that he had ti
made the mo1 ion to save time and be ti
lieving that the question might ns ti
well be settled now. But in viow of g
the desire of certain Senators to ex- il
amine the bill more carefully he with- a
drew his motion. ri

however, hardly been resumed when ti

the caucus were not to be binding od
individuals who objected to them.
What they sought waa unity of judg
