Mr. Magrath said that to show th

decided in the affirmative.
The fifth resolution was read as foll

The resolution was agreed to.
Mr? Alston then offered tho f?llowin
tions, which he requested should be
to the committee already appointed :
Resolved, That in the opinion of th
in g rieid economy should oe observed

impoverished condition of the country
prospective climinution of the budines
road? ia comparing with the former bin
the road, it is but reasonable and pro]
the salaries of officers, agents and em
should be greatly reduced, and their i
diminished according to tho actual ex
of a well managed road.
Resolved, That the salary of the P
shall not exceed thirty-five hundred
that the salary of the Superintendent s
exceed two thousand dollars; that the
bo but one supervisor-instead of three
?with a salary of fifteen hundred dolla
the salaries of the several agents ai (
ton, Columbia and Augusta, shall be i
to one tuousand dollars each; and tba
assistant agents (or servants) and ai
clerks shall DO diminished.
Hon. Geo. A. Trenholm said: There it
the by-laws of this company, adopte
great deliberation, which provides that
rectors sholl appoint all officers and age
quired for the service ot the company, i
fines the manner in which applications t
pointments shall be made. According

President and Directors of the South C
Railroad Company, and I stand here to <
that they have conscientiously, and to tl
of their ability, fulfilled the task devolve
them. I would have no objection to tin
lotion if it were couohed in general tern
when it makes a specific proposition to i
the salary of the President of this comp
am obliged to urge my objections, and
the reasons why I do so.
lt bas been said by a gentleman on my
that the most moderate salary-a corni
tion simply sufficient to provide for the i
aary wants of life, will command the best
in the country. Sir, there never was a gi
mistake. Talent and the experience nece
ia manage the affairs of a railroad cou
are not to be procured for a mere pitt
When our lamented fellow-citizen, Mr. Co
entered upon the presidency of this roai
salary in specie was $10,000. When Mr.
well was called to the chair, his salar
$7000. While, at the present time, when s
is at forty per cent, premium, the salary ie
$6000. The salary of the President of the (
gia Central road is $10,000; of the Georgia
$7000; and how does the business, and ho
the duties of the President of the Gee
road com pare'wit h" those of the President oi
South Carolina Railroad ? Here you have t
branches-one to Augusta, another to Colun
a third to Camden. Tou have a complic
machine to manage; and the position is
which requires at the bead of affairs a ma
large experience and ability, and one who
a thorough personal knowledge of all the
tereeta involved. Why, sir ' yon are snffei
now, not from rivalry but from hostility
the part of other roads. Scarcely a day pai
in which the President of this company is
obliged to make now combinations, to arra
through rates, to change prices of freight
determine the question of transportation,
secure ti ade, to provide increased facilities
s passenger - travel; all of which imposes u;
bim th o duty, continually of making new i
eolations and arrangements, for the purposi
protecting the vast interests which he hu
charge. Do you tell me that you can gc
man to fulfil these duties for the mere coal
* living? Why, sir I every gentleman he
when he comes to reflect upon the subj?
will iee that it is impossible.
- I ana not speaking from motives of friei
ship, though I do appreciate most warmly 1
present incombent of the office-not from n
tives of partiality, but I ask you, if this oft
should be made vaoant to-morrow, where v
you look for a more able and accompli3h
For five and twenty years I have be
one of the directors of this company, and
know, ftom intimacy with the several genti
men who have been at its head during that p
riod, that it is a most difficult, complicated ai
arduous duty to manage its affairs; and I ha'
the utmost confidence that when this moetii
approaches tho consideration of the repo:
now upon the table; when that report is cxan
ined in all of its details, and the business of tl
road is compared with the results of provioi
years;-when the stockholders como, like fa
minded men as they are, to consider the coi
' dition of the company on the 19th Juno, 186
when it came into the possession of the Dire?
tors, and see what they had to accomplish an
what they have accomplished;-rememberiu
what is the value of money, the difficulty c
obtaining credit, the impossibility of effectin;
loans;-when you find that they have rebuil
your road, rehabilitated it, given it credit, an?
are in a fair way to restore it to its lormc.
prosperity;-I do not think there is any gen
tlemaa present who will sustain a resolution o
that character, which seems to mo to bo r
sweeping denunciation of tho managers ol
jyar road, impaling to them a low order oj
ability, which, in my opinion, is neither righi
. ' Mr. Alston disclaimed having intended any
snob reflection upon the character or ability ol
any of the officers of the company.
Mr. Trenholm-1 think, when it is seen that
in consequence of the competition to which I
have referred, and of our reduced rates of
transportation, that this company has perform?
ed Beventy per cent, more of traffic daring the
past year than during the preoeding; that they
have carried one hundred and twenty-thou?
sand tons of freight this year, against seventy
thousand tons of freight last year; that they
received no more money for the one hundred
and twenty thousand tons than for the seventy
thousand tons; that in the transportation re*
suiting from this extraordinary augmentation I
of trade, and in running twelve" thousand miles
moro this year thau tho last, we havo uot in?
creased the por contago of expensos; when it
is known that thc salaries of nearly all the cm
ploycos havo been rcJucod ten per cent,, and
that it is now in contemplation to reduce-them
still further, I think that the body of stock?
holders wdl bo satisfied that theil- interests
have beon ably protected, and will be per?
suaded that thore has been an exhibition of
zeal aud intelligence in the direction of the af?
fairs of the road; and I do not think it wise
that, after this matter of. appointment has
beon deliberately confided to the judgment of
the directors, it uhould, be taken fron:> their
control by a mere resolution.
Colonel Wallacs hopad that the resolution
would be referred to the committee. In regard
to salaries ho said that ho had been informed
that General Gadsden received only $3500, and
thal tho salary was raised only for the purpose
of inducing Mr. Conner, who was getting
?7000, to accept tho Presidency of tho road.
Me did not know what would bo a proper sala?
ry undor thc cacumstancee, but, if tho present
salary was too ?reit, ho would certainly vote
for a reduction.
Mr. Alston said that tho gentleman was un
foit?nate ?n selocting Mr. Conner to illustrate
hid position, and would ask if his administra?
tion was more effective than that of General
Uadsden or Mr. Caldwell. He thought that
$3500 was high enough, but did not intend to
cast any reflection upon the present officers of
[ the company.
Mr. Trenholm said that at the time that Mr.
j Conner was elected President the price of stock
was $65, when he resigned it was $125 per share.
This he thought was a sufficient commentary
upon the criticism of tho gentleman.
Mr. G. S. Cameron rose to a point of order
that it had already boon moved to refer the
resolution to a committee, yet this wt.s a dis?
cussion ot the merits of the question.
The Chair sustained the point made, and the
question then being taken, the motion to refer
was agroed to.
On motion of Mr. B. O'Neill, tho meeting
then adjourned until this morning at ll o'clock.
THE ABYSSINIAN EXPEDITION.-Tho London
journals appear to think that this expedition is
going to ma e a fearful addition to the bur?
then already imposed upon the English tax?
payers, and that some grave and costly mis?
takes havo been made by those who planned
ihe material and method thereof.
The panorama presented m Annesley Bay
was very impressive, no doubt, but unpleasant?
ly suggestive of exponse. Forty transports
lay at anchor, and thirty-seven more, with the
Bengal Brigade on board, were expected daily.
At the beginning of tho new year thj loree ac?
tually disembarked and distributed between
Annesley Bay and S?uafo amounted to about
six thousand men, of whom oue-tbird were Eu?
ropeans. For the use of this little army there
were 7191 baggage animals-mules, camels,
ponies or bullocks-with 2365 drivers, not as
many as were wanted.
The loss of cattle for want of water waa
great. - The oharge of the ohieiB for "servicos"
were exorbitant. They undertake to carry
rice from the coast to the camp; but for this
transport they charge so much that tho cost of
the grain is actually doubled by the expense of
carriage. The army will have to bo ted from
the coast, because bad weather, locusts and
civil war have, des i roy ed the crops of the coun?
try. Tho Times thinks that "no materially
overrated the difibulty of the enterprise,
though, as wo had httle or no information to
guide us, tho miscalculation is not surprising.
The Koomaylee Poss, to begin with, is said to
havo been unknown uutil ouradvanced guard
and pioneer a discovered it. Mu traveller has
ever made his way to Abyssinia by that route,
though it, is far more practicable than uny
other. It was reasonable, again, to'suspect the
climate and the natives and the chiefs, and to
make preparations against hostilities all the
way iroirr Annesley Bay bo-Magdala. It turp^ cut
that money will do all we want, and that, un?
less some unfarseen.diffiQuities have yet to be
encountered, we might, according to present
presumption, march upon Magdala as Boon as
we please, wituout the necessity of striking a
I blow." " . .
j That paper admits the following to bo the
proper summing up as to thc expedition: .
" What we have actually found in Abyssinia
I is a country which, compared with some of the
regions of Northeastern and Northwestern In?
dia, is pcrfectabio practicable, a population
whose services as well as good will can be
bought for money, and an enemy in BUCII straits
that lt is a chanc? if we ever meet with him at
-The Now York correspondent of tho Phila?
delphia Lodger Boys : "The newest pohtical
rumor afloat nore is that arrangements are on
foot for a third party, to bo composed of tho
Conservative Republicans who wero turned out
of the Republican State Convention and such
of the Conservative Democracy as may choose
to come in. Hon. Henry J. Raymond, Thurlow
Weed, and other veterans of tho samo school,
are said to be engineering the movement. A
manifesto, Betting forth their plana and prin?
ciples, will make its appear ince m the course
of a few days. It is said, furthermore, that
this new movement is intended not to operare
against General Grant, but rather to render his
election all the more sure by securing for him
the State of New, York, which gave at tho last
election between firty and fifty th> *t?and ma?
jority against the Radicals."
