CHARLESTON, S. C, WK?NESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1865.
PRICE FIVE CENTS.
Stuumiiry of the President's Message.
Wabh?otow, December 6.?Tho Mossago of Presi
dent Johnson wan read to CougToea this day. "It Bays
that rcslBtanco to tho Government having exhausted lt
nelf, the first question tobo considered is, wbotbor tho
territory within tho limits of Slates which attempted to
?eccdo should bo held as conquered territory, under
military authority emanating from tho President. Ibj
considers tfiat mUltary governments established for an
indefinito period would have offorod no security for an
early supprcsBlon of discontent, would havo producod
a vanquished people fuU of envenomed hatred, rather
than restore their affection, which la tho truo theory.
All protended acts of secession woro from the begUmtng
null and void. H tatos cannot commit treason nor sccodo
through their individu?! citizens who may bavecommit
tod treason. The States attempting to secede placed them
selves in a condition wherotholr functions woro suspond
ed.but not destroyed; but if any Statoheglccts, or refueoB
to porform Us offloes, there la tho moro need that tho
General Government should maintain its authority, and,
as soon as practicable, resume its functions. On this
principle ho acted, gradually and equally; by almost im
perceptible steps, ha sought to rostoro tho rightful oner
gy of tho Oeneral Government and tho States. To that
end Provisional Governors were appointed. AU parties
In tho late terrible conflict must work together in har
mony. It is not too much to ask that a ono-Bido plan of
??storing the States BhnU proceed in conformity with a
willingness to cast tho disorders of the past into ob
livion, and that on the othor side the evldonoo of sln
cc?iy in the future maintenance of tho Union shaU bo
put beyond doubt by tho ratification or the proposed
anti-slavery amendment of the Constitution. This
amendment being adopted, it would remain for tho
States to resumo their places In both branches of Con
gress, and thereby complete the work of restoration. The
President says that tho General Government has no
authority to make the freedmon electors; that power re
mains with the States; they can decide whether it is to
be adopted at once, or Introduced gradually, with tho
condition, howevor, that the Government faith requires
tho security of the freedmen In thoir Ubcrty, property,
right to labor and to claim jurisdiction of then? labor.
It will bo his constant aim to promote peace with all
foreign nations, and thinks they aro animated by tho
Tho accordance of belligerent rights to the insurgent
matos was unjustifiable; but Groat Britain was au excep
tion ; sho built ships, furnished men and material of war
to the Insurgents. A justification of it cannot bo sus
tained before the tribunal of the world; at tho same
time he does not adviso any present attempt at redress
by acts of legislation; for the futuro tho frlondship be
tweon the tiro countries must rest on a basis of mutual
juHtiuc. Wo have wisely foreborne, because of tho
alleged propagandista of republicanism; but it
should bo a cause of great calamity to our
selves and tho cause of good .government should
any foreign power challenge tho American pooplo to its
dofenoo against foreign interference. Ho relea on the
wisdom and justice of those powers to respect our sys
tem of non-interference, which has bo long been sanc
tioned by time.
By the President of the United States of America;
Whereas, it has pleased Almighty God, during tho year
which la now coming .to an end, to relieve our beloved
country from the fearful scourge of civil war, and to
permit us to secare the blessings of peace, unity and
harmony, with a groat enlargement of civil liberty;
Wheras, our Heavenly Father has also, during tho
year, graclonsly averted from us the calamities of for
?ign war, pestuonco and famine, whilo our granaries are
full of the fruits of an abundant season; and,
Whereas, rlghteousncBS exaltcth a nation, whilo sin is
.a reproach to any people:
Now, therefore I, Amuiiew JohmboH, President of the
United States, do hereby recommend to the people thore
of that thoy do set apart and observe tho first Thursday
of Coosinber as a day of National Thanksgiving to tho
Creator of the Universe for these deli veranees and bloea
And I do further recommend that on that occasion tho
whole people make confession of our national sins
?gainst His infinite goodness, and, with one heart and
one mind, implore the Divine guidanoe In the ways of
national virtue and holiness.
la testimony whereof I hare hereunto set my hand,
?ad caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington this twenty-eighth day
of October, In the year of oar Lord one thousand eight
hundred and sixty-five, and of tho Independence of the
united States the ninetieth.

The Coal Trade?Knoruioua Profits of tho
[From the Philadelphia Ledger.]
Tho reduction or the price of anthracite coal, as shown
toy the hut auction sale of 25,000 tons at New York, com
pared with a siiiiilnr sale there a month ago. Is on an
average of the six different sizes of coal, just 104>? cents
per. ton. This is a Urge decline, and Is the result of
several cauBca. First?strikes early in the season, and
subsequently a short supply of cars brought tho coal
tonnage below that of last year to a corresponding time.
?Second?The consumption of coal following the war, in
stead of being lesRened. was increased by the greater
activity gi> eu to the steam marine of tho country, and
by tho increased demand for fuel' by the njanufacttirerr
of iron; and, Third? The coal trade, for Us great magni
tude, is centered in comparatively few handa, thus ren
dering a combination to put up prices leas cUffloult than
in almost any other pursuit.
To what extent the ruling prices of coal the current
year la attributable to "understandings," formally or
informally entered into, wo cannot pretend to say, but
we aro sure of one tldng, and that is, the price of coal
has been unwarrantably high all the year, and oven with
the laat decline in prtco, is BtlU too high. The profite
aro greater than result from almoat any other legiti
mate pursuit, and much greater than could be reabzed
if mining was la a greater number of hands. Wo'know
that It is a heavy business, and requires a largo outlay
of capital, but it 1b Bufflciontly within the control of In
dividual cnterpriBo to be in a greater number of handa
than it le, and It probably would bo much more divided
np If its proata were loss. The huge firms, with largo
means, like the Rreat oak that dwarle all efforts of tho
sapling in its shade to riae, possesses advantages that
?ids them in retaining tho business so exclusively in
their bands as it Is.
Associations of men havo, on several occasions, or
ganized Into companies under the State Mining Law,
but, in too many instances, they have proved mere,
sp?culations, directed more to the Bale of shares at ex
orbitant prices than to the production of coal at fair pro
fits. The Mining Law is, however, a good one, and was
unsigned to meet tho very ovil alluded to, and which
oxlste now, compared with tho magnitude of the trade,
to m greater extent than ever before The coal com
panies created within the last two or three years, un
fortunately, havo covered an amount of capital to twice
or three tlmestho market value of the property Incorpo
rated. There will, however, much good result from
them, by increasing tho number of producers, and
widoning tbe sources of supply. They are worthy all
reasonable encouragement, and there is reason to be
lieve, as they gradually pass from the hands of specula
tors and sharpers to thoae of practical men, will become
fairly remunerative to the owners. These companies
are among tho moat direct means of reaching cheap coal,
promising, as Bevtral of them do, to largely increase the
supply. Any attempt to lacr?ate tho price of coal by
moans or combined action will be watched and remem
bered before Coagrase.

Thoro wob a timo when the craving for excitement
among the masses of tho peoplo hore could bo sutlsfiod
by on extentdvo conliagratiou, a grand iirocosslon, a big
Btreet row, a divorce cose, a suicide, a burglary, or a first

matters of almost overy-day occurrence, and have, thero
foro, grown flat and ccininon-placo. But still, when two
or moro of them como to light simultaneously, thoy do
cr?alo t-omo little excitement. At prescut we havo on
tho corpot a real old-fashioned, cold-blooded murder, to
gcthor with a divorce caso replete with scandal. No
minder can bo considered a real first-class one unless
ono or moro of tho actors concerned have long sonorous
Spanish names. In tho cobo in question all of them

rorro? Strong. As both plaintiff und defendant must
necessarily make out a strong case and a strong defence,
thoro Is no telling, ou the strength of this, who will come

As if all this woro not sufficient food for oxcltement,
wo receive from Albany a horriblo account of Uae mui
dor of a whole family, consisting of a man, his wifo, and
daughter aged twelvo years; und from Plttsburg tho
blood-curdling detaiU of the trial and sentence of Mar

I told yen in my laat that Tom Savers was dead; it
sooms superfluous to add in this that he la buried ; but
thoro are circumstances connected with his funeral that
make it interesting. Tho English papers toll us that n tre
mendous crowd of blackguards and plug-uglies attended
Tom's funeral, and in their eager anxiety to get into the
church yard, there was u regular "knock-down and drag
out" fight between them and tho police Every body
had heard that Tom was dead; somo people could not
conceive-tbo possibility of such s bruiser having really
given up the ghost. But when tho row came off, and
poor Tom did not como out of his cofflu to take a hand

Your roadcrs (at least a portion of them) may havo
heard of making up pools at horse-races; but it will
perhaps bo something new to them to learn that it is
customary hero to moke up pools in which candidates
at an election aro put up and sold. A poil was made up
last night at Lafayotto Hall, in which the four candidates
for Muy or?Roberts, Hoffman, Hccker und G?nther?
were put up \nd sold like, so many ruco-horscs. Tho
best way to lllustrato how these things aro managed is
to glvo an account of tho bidding In one of tho eight
pools mudo up last night. Tho auctioneer aunonnoed
that there were four candidates, and that the first
choice ii put up. The first choice is knocked down to
Mr. A. for $50. Mr. A. names Roberts as his man, puts
tho $60 in the pool, and receives a printed certificate.
Second olioico was thou put up and knocked down to
Mr. B. for $45?Mr. B. choosing Hoffman, and forking
over his $1S. Third choice aold for $10 to Mr. C, who
named Hocker. Fourth choice only brought $3, and
was bought by Mr. D., m ho of course was obliged to
take G?nther. Thoro was now $108 in the pool, and
when the election takes place, which ever candidato is
successful, tho man who holds tho ticket with his name
thereon takes the pool. It sometimes happens in horse
racing thai the man who buys tho name of the cheapest
hors?? wins the money. It will hardly happon so, how
over, in this case.
Last night the "Octoroon" was performed at the Win

[FROM OUT? OWN COBBESrONDKNT.]
Columbia, December 4.?The report of the President
and Directors of tho Bonk of the State ha? been printed
and laid before tho Legislature. It says : "Tho dis
charge of the duty of supplying the me ins to meet tho
appropriations made by the Legislature during the late
contest has exhausted its active resources, and tbo
Bank is unable to answer the demand which it has,
heretofore, always responded to, by advancing moans to
meet tho public expenditure In anticipation of the col
lection of tho State revenue."
In the acoompanying statement it shows that tho per
sonal deposit account amounts to $4,307,3?.78; but the
report says that these 'deposits were received in the
then ourronoy, on the express condition that tho par
ties depositing were to take all the risk of change of
value. The report farther shows that the President, in
connexion with tho Comptroller-General, borrowed
from other banks, under Act of December, 1864,
$1,340,616; but sovcral of tho banks making tho advance
oro Indebted to the Bank in balances to the amonn t of
$503,000; aud the whole indebtedness was merely a cur
ronoy obligation. The .report further shows that the
Book paid for tho expenses of the Convention $13,000 in
specie, which it was provided that the General Assembly
The report calls attention to the fact that the English
lndebtedneai of the State requires special attention,
Baring Brothers ft Co. having paid the interest, a part
only of which has been refunded, leaving the Stute their
debtor to tho amount of $12,625.40. No provision has
been made for tbo semi-annual interest due in January.
The principal or the debt due in Europo is 109,000 pounds
The Bank is in possession of assets, exclusive of Con
federate paper and of sums advanced to tho State, to tho
amount of about $3,600,000: but apart of this consists
of notes taken for loans lu currency.
The report recommends that tho State 1hs.ui certifi
cates of indebtediiesn to pay officers and creditors, this
Issue to be in bills of the denomination of flva and teu
dollars, and rocol vdblo tu payment of taxes. It also
state? that It has determined to open In Charleston on
office for receiving deposits, and, it continue?!, thr?t "it
is bohevod that with tho revival of business an enlarge
ment of its operations would on sue, aud It enabled to
resumo the position it has hitherto held." 'i'hw-o aru
the chief pointu of the report.
Whatover the proceedings of tho Legislature may havo
boon to others, they woro, to your corrospondunt, ex?
coedlwriy wearisome. The District Court Bill was again
up In both Houses. In tho Sonata but little progress
whs mudo, but lu the House the second reading was
nearly completed. Tho following aro tho principal
amendment j modo in that body : Tho clause of ecctlon
six, which was ntrlckcn out on Saturday, wan, ou a iu
consideration, oioyed by Mr. HasktU, restored, and a
person is not now forbidden from giving testimony on
account of interest or disbelief in God. The noventa
section was amended to to to r< a uiro that, in caso the
Dlstriol Judge shall be a party in Interest in the suit, tho
cune shall bo removed to a neighboring District. Mr.
Hinionion also moved an amendment that all judgments
Kb ill bo entered up in tho Circuit Court next ensuing.

diction to District Courts in oases of misdemeanors
committed by whit? persons, won tritken out. These
amendments aro (ho only things of any interest that can
