I CONNECTION BETWEEN THE BJJLBOADS AND
WHARVES-REVIVAL OF THE SCHEUE-'
2IATOB ON THE ALEUT-THE BALL ONCE IT
4C. ?C., 'C.
The importance of making arrangements
ensure the quick and cheap carriage of frei!
between thc wharves in this city and thc r
road depots has long been recognized, enc
has been felt that the necessarily high c
and delays of the carriage by drays was a
riou8 difficulty in thc way of increasing trai
Years ago it was proposed to run the Sot
Carolina Railroad down to the wharves, a
build a terminal depot upon tho Cooper Riv
and, when this scheme failed on account
active opposition, attention was turned to t
feasibility of forming an independent compa
which should accomplish a similar result.
At thc last session of the State Legislatur?
company was chartered under tho title of t
Farmers' and Merchants' City Railway Coi
pany of South Carolina, with power to lay ra
way tracks through and along the streets
Charleston, and to employ upon such trac
suitable cars, to bo drawn by horses or otb
animals, for the transportation of passenge
and freight. The rates to be charged by tl
company were to be approved by the Ci
Council, and the tracks were not to be la
until the consent of two-thirds of the who
number of the City Council had been obtains'
Among the corporators were Alonzo J. Whit
Wm. A. Courtenay, Robert Adger, Wm. ,
Hastie, Z. B. Oakes and John Ferguson. Tl
act was approved on December 20, 1866, an
was to remain in force for twonty-ono years.
As soon as the scheme was fairly made put
lio, it met with bitter hostility. The draj
men were of opinion that such a compa n
would take away their business, and addrcsse
?tf remonstrance to the city authorities, and
variety of circumstances combined to make i
impracticable to obtain from Council that coi
sent, witheut which the charter was inopen
tire. From the time of the refusal on the pai
of Council to confirm the charter of this corn
pany, the whole affair has lain dormant. Bu
Mayor Cogswell, with that energy which ha
characterized his brief administration of th
city affairs, has taken the matter in hand, am
is now engaged in ascertaining the practica
bility of the plan that has been already dis
THE BENEFITS OF THE PLAN.
Of the benefit to shippers of a line of tran
or railroad which would allow them to nu
th' ir goods at low cost from the wharves tc
the depot, or from the depot to the wharves
there can be no doubt. Trade will fall into thc
nearest and most economical channel. Ever;
additional facility given to it widens its course
and increases its volume, and the extent ol
the advantage may bo measured by the state?
ment that cotton could be taken to the wharves
profitably, by railroad, at about one-third ol
what it now costs to move it by drays.
The draymen, of course, believe that the
creight railroad would drive them from the
streets and reduce their earnings to nothing.
Another objection is, that if the drays were
deprived of employment, the city would lose
the large revenue now derived from licenses
granted to draymen.
It is not too much to say that the fears oi
the draymen are exaggerated and ill-founded
No action looking to the increase of our trade
tvill permanently affect adversely any branch
of business. A freight railroad could not do
more than take the trade between the wharves
ind the railroads. It would not take the
-oods dispatched by our merchants on King
itreet, Hayne-street, Broad-street and Meet
ng-street to the north or west, nor could it
ake inward freight going to any part of the
?itv not immediately upon its line of direction.
Moreover, where a farmer sells his produce there
rill he buy his goods; and if the through trade
of Charleston is largely increased, its local trade,
if properly conducted, will improve in the same
proportion. The draymen, after the first
shock, would no more lose by the introduction
of a freight railroad, than did those unfortu?
nate stock raisers who saw ruin to all their
hopes of high prices in the commencement of
the railroad system of South Carolina. The
price of stock advanced as the railroads made
progress, and as the city freight railroad he?
arne known, so would improve the trade of our
The objection on the part of the city can be
sasily met, for a toll can be laid apon the
freight railroad company which will realize as
much as would be derived from the draymen.
HOW TO DO rr.
It being granted that a connecting railroad
for freight purposes is necessary to our trade,
it remains to consider the best means of
making the idea a tangible fact. Three sug?
gestions are made. 1st. That the South Caro?
lina Railroad lay the track and run its own
cars to the wharves. 2. That the city do the
work and charge a toll to all persons using the
road, the city either supplying cars and stock,
or allowing private individuals to provide
them. 3. That the road be built by a public
Tht first plan, in all probability, cannot be
carried out. It would throw upon the railroad
the necessity of providing additional rolling
stock; it would require an immediate outlay of
capital, and would possibly engage the compa?
ny in u business for which it is not prepared.
This, however, is mere speculation, for the
company, in its zeal to advance the interests
of the State, may be willing to undertake tho
construction of the ioad if it cannot be done in
any other manner.
At this time the city it too much embar?
rassed to undertake any work that would add
to the city debt, and, upon consideration, it
would seem as well that the project should be
carried out by a private company, which should
be so surrounded by checks and safeguards as
to mako it profitable to th-:> city as well as to
THE PLAN OF WOBETNG.
One of the most open points of this inter?
esting subject, however, is that in reference to
the best manner of working the line. It ap?
pears to be impracticable to ruu the cars
through from their starting point to the
wharves without breaking bulk, and the hand?
bag and reloading of cotton and other freight
at the Charleston depots cannot well be avoid?
ed. The cars required will be for the most
part platform cars, and only a sufficient
number of box cars would be required
to be used for perishable goods and in bad
weather. Thus the rolling stock would not be
expensive, and it is certain that two horses
could pull with ease five or six times the quan?
tity of cotton that could be hauled on two drays
with oue horse each. The route would be from
the South Carolina Railroad freight depots and
cotton yards towards the river, and thence
along a line east of the Bay to the most north?
erly of our wharves. At each wharf there would
be a switch, and a track running along the
wharf, 60 that the car load of freight taken
from the railroad depot could be delivered at
the side of the ship which was to carry it to
It has been proposed, also, that the com?
pany should do no more thnn lay the track,
and that every finn of consequence should have
its own cars and horses, transfer its own
freight, do its own hauling, and pay a yearly
toll for thc use ot the track. This plan has
some- advantages, but it is open to the disad?
vantage that a linccauuot be operated a? well
by a hundred persons as it can by one,
this disadvantage would bo moat evident i
trade was brisk and it wr.s absolutely n<
sary to keep the liuc clear of all obstruct!
This is but a rough review of the gei
bearings of the subject; but, now that the
has begun to roll, we trust that it will
cease to revolve until the Freight Railroi
one of our prime necessities-is an ace
VIEWS OF THE MAYOR.
Colonel Cogswell, impressed with the im]
tance of speedily building the freight radi
has taken the necessary initiatory steps in
enterprise, and as soon as a proper degre
co-operation is secured the work wiu.be c
menced. He believes that no other ave:
can be more quickly opened and yield gran
results, than that which enables the plante
ship his cotton direct to the warehouse
steamship, and the merchant to receive in
turn tho goods brought from the Not
Charleston being essentially a cotton mi
whatever tends to facilitate the transportatioi
the staple, saves expense, invites business, :
enhances the resources of the city by incre
ing its trade and floating population.
Whatever may be the outlay necessary
! effect the improvement, he is strongly of 1
opinion that it will be almost immediately <
set by the great advantages that will rest
while that large and indus triona class, i
draymen, will find that instead of losing bu
ness they will be largely the gainers by rea?
of the additional life infused into all dopa
ments of trade.
Imbued with this idea, the Mayor has e;
neatly commenced operations, and the C
Council will doubtless lend their aid with eqi
zealousness in effecting this additional gre

GBEAT PABTT CONVOCATION AT TEX CLUB
HOUSE-THE NOMINEES GIVE A DINK EH-THE
HEP AST, CHESTS AND SPEECHES-THE CAM?
PAIGN COMMENCED WITH ENTEE AND FOBE.
To U6e the frequent phrase of speech and
ordinance, "without distinction of race or
color," two hundred and fifty persons last
night sat down to celebrate, with banquet,
speech and song, the formal organization of
the 8outh Carolina Radical Republican party,
the choice of its candidates, and the inaugura?
tion of its labors.
No such jollification has ever been seen in
the Palmetto State; no such congregation ever
assembled anywhere. It is therefore an
Event, and, M nn^h, wu give it all the space
which the lateness of the hour will permit.
We have stated the object of th? occasion.
By whom it was designed, we know not, but
the suggestion for a monster "blow out" met
with the approbation of the twenty-six candi?
dates for the popular suffrage, and they con
tributed heavily to make the night memorable
in the annals of the new political regime.
TH H tTAT.T
Thc convention adjourned at 12 M., when the
carpenters and cooks took possession.
The railing which for fifty days had shut out
" the people " was removed ; three lines of ta?
bles running longitudinally with a transverse
table at one end o! the hall were speedily con
structed ; flags were festooned, and viands
brought by the cartload to appease the patient
appetites of the hungry guests. Wines and
liquors, various and profuse, were also supplied
and the eating arrangements differed not ma?
terially from all other displays of the kind.
Tully, the well-known caterer, furnished what?
ever was requirod, and the general direction of
affairs was under the control of F. L. Car
d oza, tho new candidate for the office of Sec?
retary of State. M
assembled down stairs at nine o'clock, formed
in procession, marched and countermarched,
ascended to the hall, flied around tho tables,
made right angles with their legs thereunder,
and commenced work.
Dr. A. G. Mackey presided, with General
B. K. Scott on his right, and Major D. T. Cor?
bin, United States District-Attorney, on his
Tho other tables were respectively presided
over by B. F. Whittemore, F. J. Moses, Jr.,
Among the invited guests distributed through j
the hall and sandwiched between members of I
tho convention, were several United States of?
ficials, attaches of the governmental machinery
and Northern residents of Charleston. No one
was present in uniform, and there was on equal
absence of uniformity in the manner in which
the Caucasian and Ethiopian races fraternally
intermingled. White and black sat shoulder
to shoulder in the most republican-like affin?
ity-the irecchnan who used to black the boots
of his competitor for office, and the candidate
who used to pay him a quarter for doing it,
and receive his bare-headed Salaam and "tank
you, Mossa," for his generosity. "Sich is life."
We can only add, "Go it, boots !"
General Conby and staff were invited, bat
not present; the General, however, sent a let?
ter, stating that be was unable to attend on
account of a severe asthmatic affection.
Before commencing the repast, a blessing
was asked by Rev. B. F. Whittemore.
The tables being cleared, the chairman an?
nounced the nominees in the order of their ex?
pected official position, and they severally re?
sponded, except Judge Boozer, who was ab?
sent. Three cheers were given for each nomi?
nee on rising, and three when he again held
his chair down.
The speeches were all of the style with which
our readers have been familiar fora month and |
a half, and some of them were prepared with
the usual after-dinner-like precision which
marks every well ordered banquet.
The extemporaneous efforts were varied and
funny, and the whole affair was characteristic
of the strange times upon which we have
C. C. BOWEN NOMINATED FOB CONGBESS.
Two stormy sessions of the Nominating Con?
vention of the Second Congressional District,
were held yesterday at the Club House for the
purpose of selecting a Republican candidate
for the United States House of Representa?
tives. Three candidates were in the field,
namely-C. C. Bowen, Gilbert Pillsbury, and
Gen. Carlos Stoibrand.
Thirty-six delegates were present. Eleven
ballots were taken during the morning ses?
sion, when Bowen Btood fifteen, Pillsbury
twelve, and Stoibrand nine. On the twenty
third ballot, taken in tho afternoon, Pillsbury
withdrew, whereupon Bowen received twenty
three votes, and Stoibrand eleven. Bowen
was then declarea to be unanimouslv elected.

an inquest yesterday on the body of James
Proctor, colored, who was injured a few dave
ago by the falling of a wall in the burnt dis?
trict, near the corner of Chapel and Alexander
streets. Deceased was engaged in pulling
down one of the old walls in that section, but,
a portion of the bricks fulling on him, he was
so severely injured that he died at the alms?
house, Mazyck-street, whither he was moved
immediately after the accident, on Thursday
night. His two legs bad to bo amputated.
Verdict of the jury-accidental death.

its wonderful restorative and curative qual'ties.
Under its stimulative influence, and by ita pen?

cites a general beneficial reaction, and disperses the
impermeable obstructions which prevent access to
other remedies. While gradually reducing the ac?
companying constriction which attends the malady,
it reproduces the essential warmth and clastic vigor
of the respiratory vessels, which, by this remedial
combination, promotes the healing process by which
relief and cure is effected.
Hemorrhages are arrested and cured, with every

As neither narcotic oor emetic properties of any
kind are employed in thisPulmonic Compound, and
the most assiduous attention given to the quality
and medical value of each component article which
constitute it, it is confidently and conscientiously
