PRICE FIVE CENTS
The ? harleston Daily News for IS6S-I1U
Encouraged by the recent large increase in
the circulation of TUE CHARLESTON DAILY
NEWS, the proprietors are happy to announce
that, with the opening of the new year, the
price of subscription will be reduced to a figure
which will at once placo the paper within
the reach of every family in the city and
throughout the State. On and after the first
of January, 18G8, THE DAILY NEWS will be pub?
lished at Six DOLLARS A YEAR, payable, in all j
cases, in advance. It will then be, without
exception, the cheapest first-class journal in
the Southern States. There is no good reason
why our community should not be furnished
with a live daily newspaper at a rate approxi?
mating the* of the sprightly penny press of the
Northern cities : and tho vevy generous support
which has been accorded to us on all sides has
hastened a step, long contemplated on our part,
towards meeting the popular want, lt is hard?
ly necessary to say that thore will be no dimi?
nution in the amount or interest of the reading
matter in any department of the paper; on the
y contrary, it will be our constant effort and our
pride to make it, day by day, more full, reliable
and entertaining-the spirited compend of the
world's news, the mirror of local life, and the
mouthpiece of an enlightened and liberal pub?
At the solicitation of many of our friends in the
country, we shall also, during the first week in
January, commence the issue of THE CHARLES?
TON TRI-WEEKLY NEWS. The subscription
price will be THREE DOLLARS A YEAR, or Two
DOLLARS FOR SIX MONTHS, payable always in
This reduction tx our rates will, we know,
be all the more welcome to the public, inas?
much as it comes it a time of unprecedented
financial distress, when there are few, indeed,
among our people who do not sorely need every
dollar that cai' bc saved. We do not permit
ourselves to doubt that our enterprise will be
rewarded with a steady increase of that popu?
lar appreciation and support of which we have
hitherto received so liberal a share. THE
DAILY NEWS already enjoys a circulation
largely exoeeding that of any other journal
now published in this or the adjoining States ;
and its readers may rest assured that, in the
future, no effort will be spared to increase the
attractiveness of its columns, and to extend
still further the field of its influence and use?

ventura of niinulacturers and dealers in spirits,

favor twenty-five cents per galion, or tax on stills
according to capacity. Tho l?stern delegates
were more interested tn changes in tho revenue
than in changes in tho law. It was represented
that where there were only fifty distilleries before
tho tax, there aro now over seven hundred, and i
is admitted that all must, in one way or thc other
evade the tax or loso money. It is claimed that
outside of facilities for feeding stock, the western

The South Carolina Annual Conference of

[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
MOSOANTON, N. C., December 10.-Tho South
Carolina Annual Conference of the Methodist
Episcopal Church, South, will hold its next ses?
sion in this delightful up-country town. Tho
boundaries of an Annual Conference of the Metho?
dist Church arc not necessarily determined by po?
litical or State lints. They aro organized with a
view to convenience for the assemblage of their
respective members, when sufficient in number to
ensure ample counsel upon the various interests
involved. Nor does thu name of a Conference m
every case indicato its geographical boundaries.
The "South Carolina Conference" embraces seve?
ral Counties in North Carolina, and at ono time
included nearly half the State of Georgia. Tho
Holston Conference hes mostly upon the river of
that name, and ?B taibutaries in the States of
North Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee. Fora full
attendance of members the boundaries of many of
cur Conferences should bc contracted. It is sug?
gested that tho ,'South Carolina Conference b? re?
stricted to that State, and that a new Conference
b? organized in North Carolina, with Greensboro'
for its Eastern and the Blue Ridge for its Western
From Charleston to this place by rail is over
three hundred miles. Your correspondent spent
a day on thc way in tho city of Charlotte, N. C.,
the most flourishing inland city in the State.
From Charlotte we passed over the North Caro?
lina Railroad to Salisbury, where wo spent the re?
mainder of the night pleasantly-some ?it the Boy
den and some at the Mansion, both capital hotels.
Fifteen miles south of Salisbury is Gold Hill, where
the precious metal is taken from tho earth, at a
depth of seven hundred feet from the surtace. West
of Salisbury, on the western extension, is States
ville, where the Presbyterians have a popular and
flourishing t?male college; and Newton, where the
German Reformed Church have a college lor young
The railroad to this place was chartered by the
legislature in 1849; but not commenced until 1854.
It has been constructed at an immense outlay of
labor if not funds, judging from the deep cuts,
sometimes not li ss than sixty feel, and embank?
ments to correspond. There is not a trestle upon
the road eighty miles to this place, lt is intended
to run it to the Tennessee line, and much ot ihe
grading lias beer, completed west of thin. Tho
situation of llorganton is rather romantic than
beautiful; but the courthouse is a handsome edi?
fice, and many private residences exhibit jrroat
architectural taste and beauty. The county of
which it is thc capital, was named in honor of the
celebrated orator and statesman, Edmund Uurko,
and was laid oft' in 1777, from Rowan. Tho town
was named -n honor or General Daniel Morgan, of
revolutionary memory, the hero of the battle of ?
the Cowpens. Previous to the war, it was the
seat of the Hummer session of the Supreme t'ourt
of the State, which now only sits fa Raleigh. A
United States garrison of one hundred and fifty
men, under command of Colonel Royal, now guards
the peace of the place. A Methodist, Presbyte
rian, Episcopal and African Church represent th
religious faith of tl.o people. This country
ibounds with fruit of nil kinds, especially apple?
[ino meadow.-*, a productive ?oil, and good living
We found comparatively few minister? hero this
evening. Probably not ono-hall thc Conference io
in attendance, and few more aro expected. I seo
out two from the Charleston District. The atten
lance of lay delegates is comparatively less than
of the ministry. Bishop Doggett is present and
rill preside, lint five applicants for the intiner

embles thc old constitutions wo have known in
his country s.nco the American Revolution. In
onie respects, however, as wa;i to be anticipated,
he now runs ahead of the old, and we will endca
or to noto the most striking of these changes:
1. Imprisonment for debt ia prohibited.
2. No property qualification can be established
or electors of tho Slite.
3. Thc clause ol' slavery roads a? follows:
That no form of slavery shall exist in this
tate, and there shall be no" involuntary servitude
therwiso than for the punishment of crime, of
..hich the party shall nave been duly convicted.
4. Divorces can only be granted by suits in

-PRINCESS S ALM SALM, ETC.
Tho Washington correspondent of tho Baltimore
nn writes under date of December ll :
Thc correspondent of the Cincinnati Commcr
ial telegraphs from this city to-night an account
f a little unpleasantness th.it has arisen between
leneral Grant and Mr. Stanton, on account of the
hraseology ot tho latter's letter, "yielding to
upenor force," and alight disagreement betweon
hem as to the facts connected with tho chango in
he War Department. From General Grant's
estimony bet?re the impeachment committee,
t appears that prior to tho correspondence be
woen them, Goncral Grant and Mr. Stanton had
conversation upon tho proposed suspension of
ho latter. Il is aliened that General Grant com?
plains of Mr. Stanton's language in this nott! as
icing at variance in tone from what was agreed
ipon in their consultation.
There is reason to believe thal the President
.'ill not hold for the constitutional ten days thc

Thc Impeachment Vote.
A close examination of Saturday's veto in the
louse of Representatives on tho impeachment
.esolution will show some curious and suggestive,
f not unexpected results. The Philadelphia
hedger gives the following interesting analysis :
Wo throw out the forty-three votes cast by tho
Democratic members against impeachment, and
;onsider only thoso thrown by tho Republican
nembcrs on both sides of tho question. Of theso
hero were- one hundred and twenty-three, fifty
teveu of the Republicans voting for impeachment,
iud sixty-six voting against it. It will, therefore,
;e seen" that the resolution was defeated by tho
Scpuliiieens, even if none of the Dernecrats' had
roted. If wa now inquire what Slates and what
geographical sections produced this result, some
of the curious features of tba voting be?
come at once observable. Thus, of thc twenty?
mo voles cast by thc New England Republicans,
only five were in favor of impeachment, and
seventeen against it. Neither Vermont, Rhode
island nor Connecticut gave a vote in favor of tho
resolution; Maino voted four to one against it; and I
Massachusetts voted seven to two against it. New <
Hampshire alone voted a majority for it, he1, mein- I
oers standing two to ono. Coming South to New
i'ork, we hud that of tho sixteen Republicans :
I'jom that Stato who voted on tho question, only
three voted for impeachment, and sixteen against;
md in New Jersey two Republican member? in
that dc legation voted against it. Thus tho Repub?
lican vote ot the c-igh. States East and North of
Pennsylvania stood ei rbi tor impeachment, end
thirty-two against it. it is not until we reach our i
own State that there is a change. Of tho fourteen
Republican members from Pennsylvania ..ho were
present when tho voto was taken, nine voted for
impeachment, and fivo againal it. Continuing
along the .v lan.ic seaboard, and passing Delaware,
which had DO Republican member, wo come to
Maryland, and find tho only Republican vcie from
that* State cast in favor of impeachment. Hero
ive have a review of the Republic in vote from tho
steven Northern States on tho Atlantic seaboard,
?md il stands thus: For impeachment eighteen;
igaiiL-l impeachment thirty-seven.
The foregoing constitute tho commercial ar.:l
manufacturing States now represented in Con?
gress. What connection ibero may bo between
thc peculiar nature of the voter and thc geographi?
cal and business relations referred to, our iva iors
tvill jueigo for themselves. Let us now take tho
States immediately adjoining those above ii..mod.
Tho West Virginia" Republican members j,iva two
votes against impeachment, and none in favor of
it ; the Ghio Republicans give niuo voten against
impeachment and iivo in favor of it; R'.id tho
Michigan Republicans gave lour votes against
impeachment and lout ono in favor of it. 1J ero wc
have a review of the Republican rotos from four?
teeu States, elf ven of which aro on tho Atlantic
seaboard, and thrct- next adjoining hindering on
thelal.es and tin-Ohio liver, These States cast
seventy-six Republican votes on Saturday, of
which twenty-four weie given in favor of impeach?
ment and fifty-two against it. ihis embr ices ail
the States east and north of the Indiana Siuto linc.
Beyond that, botii west and south, the tide is the
other way, with but two exceptions.
Thc Indiana Republican members voted five in
favor of impeachment ami one agaiusi it; those
from Illiuois, seven in favor and lour against;
those from Tennessee six in favor and ono against :
those from .Missouri, seven in favor and one
againal : those hom Wisconsin; three in favor and
two against ; and Minnesota, Kansas and Califor?
nia each gave one Republican vote in ravot of im?
peachment. Th. si; embrace all the remaining
States that gave Republican votes on tho ques?
tion either way, except Iowa and Nevada. lb<
Iowa Republicans voted, two for irupeachnicnl
and four against it;and the Nevada Republican
member gave the single vote ol that State againsi
impeachment. 'Thus it will bo sen that tho Re?
publican members Crom tho Stn'es west and
south of Ohio voled thirty-three in favor of im?
peachment, ?md only fourteen against it. This is
more than three to one lu favor nf impeachment ;
while thu. e north and east of Indiana v.tod more
than two to one against it. It may bc instruc?
tive RS well OS curious tu study these result.-, in
their geographical, commercial aid manufac?
turing relations, as well as in their political
bearings., and with this \if,? we !av theo." before
our readers. The public generali] will feel r.
sense of relief in the fact ihat "ii" great source ot
irritation and apprehension has been removed
from the orena of party discussion, and tho more
so that thc decision Kivca is mainly by the Re?
publican majority. It is tu be hoped thai the
?ame sense ol' duty, or tho same convictions of
pohev, niuv Le brought int" operation nil round,
to that the BUfleriug industria! and business in?
terests may receive the best attention of Congress
at the earliest possible day. j
Dr. Samuel fleury Dickson.
A volume entitled "Studies in Pathology and
Therapeutics,"' just published by William Wood k
Co., of this city, is from the pen of Dr. Samuel
Henry Dickson', tho distingij iahed pathologist,
formerly Professor of the Theory and Practico of
Medicine in tho University ol' Kew York, and now
ocoupying a similar chair in the facultv of Jeffer?
son Medical College, Philadelphia.
To all ?hose acquainted with Professor Dickson's
signal ability as a teacher ard writer of medi?
cal therapeutics, the simple announcement of
a now book from his pen upo:i thc subject of his
specialty is quito sufficient to s.ccure its eager pe?
rusal. Dr. Dickson has been a successful practi?
tioner and teacher of medicine for about half a
century; first bi his native City of Charleston,
South Carolina, afterwards in New York citv, and
finally, foi thc last eight years, in Philadelphia.
Daring this long period ho ha j enriched tho pro?
fession with several most able and authoritative
treatises upon various branches in his department,
of research, and his books aro noted, independent?
ly of their high scientific value, for a singularly
eloquent and graceful stylo, which givos them a
decided and peculiar literary merit not common to
works of their class. lu tue preeont volume this
charm of st} lo is eminently displayed, making the
"Studies" as interesting to tho cultivated but un?
professional reader, as they are to the student or
[?Thcso "Studies" consist of six essays, four of
which were read as lectures before tho claese3 of
tue Jefferson Medical college; their subjects being,
respectively : The Character and Tendency ol'
Disease, lis Causation; Of certain morbid condi?
tions of the Sensorial System; Pneumonia; Scrofu
losis and Tuberculosis, and Therapeutics.
Each of these essays is admirablo in ?ts way;
and though of necessity far from exhaustive or
minute, they are nevertheless full, learned, and
in many instances highly uigonious and original in
I heir argumentativo and" theoretic aspects. They
ire, besides, happily illustrated by facts and de?
tails of pathological phenomena, gathered from
the unusually wide reading and experience of Dr.
Dickson, and related in the most apt and forcible
manner; while at tue same time tho sciontific re?
search, extensivo erudition, and familiarity with
ill forms; systems aud theories npportaimng to
;he subject," though constantly patent to thc
:eador, arc entirely saved from the suspicion of
ledantry or egotism by tho unaffected ease and
;leganco of diction, and the perfect frankness and
ltter absence ol' dogmatism on the part of thc

[Translated from Le Follet.)
Tho larg" bonnets tbreatoned to como into fash
on again. Fortunately, however, the attempt has
Droved unsuccessful. VVith the prevailing stylo of
chignon hair-di'ms, it is, in fact, impossible to
idopt thc real bonnets. When thu milliners saw
that they could not popularize the large bonnets,
thev commenced making still smaller ones than
before, so that the already microscopic bonnets of
last year seem largo in comparison willi those now
orn. The fanchon style, tno Truman, the Mario
Antoinette, 'thc flat-top bonnet, and BM diadem
bat, are the favorite styles adopted by tho beau
monde. Thev are ornamented, toa great extent,
with steel and gilt drops, ::lso with garnets or friz?
zed feathers, or again with aigrets. Tho satin or?
naments, or vreaths ot velvet leaves mixed with
gold, arc likewise ir. demand. Tho reins knotted
behind have become shorter, and long floating rib?
bons have seep, theil days ; a simple knot ander
the chignon being all that is required. In fact,
whoever wears the Spanish mantilla, or tho bail
mantilla, covering only tho chignon, prefers a
lace flounce or a simple drapery oitc-dding into
bonnet st;in,H. Tno round hat bau been much
worn at thc races, and imitates in its shepe tho
flat top stvlo of bonnot. As for tho round brimmed
h it, it is often made of Russian leather. Thus it
mav bo scon that eccentricities aro still thc order
of tho day. Velvet, plush, aod silk taffeta c jntjnuo
to be much used for/dress costumes. For visiting
toilets nothing is considered more stylish than
velvet and satin. The following, for instance, ts a
description of a very elegant visiting toilet: An
amaranth eolored silk taffeta dress with long traiu.
Around the bottom or tho ukirt ie a pattern of
largo fret-work formed of satin folds of tho same
Bhade about . centimeter high. Two of thes .
folds unite this fret-work in gracoful designs with
the wcist-belt by coming up all along tho seams of
the breadths, liie B?anu of thc waist are likowise
concealed under the two moro closoly twined folds,
while the fret-work repeats itself into smaller pro?
portions on each shoulder, and on a still ^mailor
s ::.le at tho end of tho sleeves. Tho round belt
lined with folds is provided with a wido sash
fastened behind to tho waist, hanging looso down
the *kirt. This sash is bordered wltii twined
sn titi folds, and the whole width of Us extremo
end with fret-woru of natin folds. Another more
?implo but aleo very rion costume ie as follorrs:
l'ho skirt is made ot satin, with wide black
mil grey Bhripes, lbs lowes pail or it be?
ing lined with a velvet row ot' the same
pray shade as tho stripe, and of pretty
large dimensions. This same row is twice re?
peated by undulating on tho front skirt, round the
upper part of tho shoves, and near tho waist?
bands: With this equally rion and tasteful dress,
i paletot ehawi of black velvet, ornamented with
threads cf silk laco and other lace work, ia very
becoming. For young women, au emerald greeii
poplin citcs-j, fattened x ht polonaise, I-J thc moot
becoming as a miling costume. The border of
the peck, and ti-.atp.irt cf thc fr-ontpioco which
covcrst.e- other pr.rt, in lined with Uzslowork of
crncvu'd green taffeta, another embroidery of the
samo material and description, being r.' a distance
of a centimeter and a half from the other one.
The skirt i J long, aud lined with a simple row of
Hit. P imo taffeta. With this dress -houid be worn
a Email, t:gh:-litiiug cassock of black velvet, lined
?itk satin, or a Polish ),alr:ot of black velvet, with
Ctiiv (..;e black kalin quilted facing in froi.t. Din?
ner, theatre and party drcHis, and are-i ball cca
tinucs, bogia already to De talked about. For
such occasions, and more especially ae an opera
toilet, the following very becoming stylo is recoru
nicn icd : 1'hs skirt is double, and of white cham
berry rauze; the lowe* one has a ?ons train, and is
ornamented with a ama 1 flounco ot ten centi?
meters. AbOVO 'his fliutica ia a row of deep
scarlet velvet, looped with white- salin and a iringc
of rod silk at its end, which half covers the flounce
by falling owr it. Tho upper skirt is liutid with
thc samo velvet row anti fringes, and onus in a
point behind; it is tucked up on each side bv float -
ing red ribbons looped with white, and bv a sash
which reaches up to thc belt. The wai t'is orna?
mented with white satin and rod louis, forming in
front a red rose with a white heart in it. A hall'
wreath of red roses, or a garland of aollj ieav es
willi red fruit, nuke* the costume complete.
