and, on examination, letters were found which
?ed to the belief that the unfortuno man was
Mi. John McAliley, of Florida, on a visit to
this place. A quantity of opium was also found

found. He was seventy years of age.
THE FUTUBE OF THE SOUTH.-Mr. Henry C.

?further, that its whole upland country presents
-one of the most magnificent climates of the
world, can it be doubted that the day is at hand
when emigration to the South and Southwest
must take the place now occupied by immigra?
tion to the West, and when power is to pass
from the poor sofia of the Northeast to those
richer ones which now offer themselves in such
vast abundance in the Centre, the South and
-the Southwest ? As I think, it cannot."
THE UNTVEBSITY OF SOUTH CABOLLNA.-The

to that pursued in the best universities of the ,
country, and the professors are highly accom?
plished in their several departments. Tho ?

THE NATIONAL FREEDMAN'S SAVTNG3 AND

man's Bank for February, by which it appears 1
that the deposits in Charleston are $20,200 39, |!
and a gain during the year of $33,877. Int j
Beaufort, South Carolina, which is the otherl
branch office in South Carolina, the deposits
have amounted to $35,097 62, but from various j
causes the loss during the year has been
$6,766 17. Both branches are in a flourishing '
condition, aud speak well for the thrifty habits
of the freedmen, who are their main constitu?

THE INQUEST ON MAST MEEHAN, KrT.T.yp o
THE SOUTH CAROLINA RAILROAD.-Corone
Whiring has for the past two days been enga;
ed in the investigation of the death of Mai
Meehan, caused by the backing of the tra
near Woolfe-street. A large number of witnes
es were examined, and a verdict rendered cot
pletely exonerating the officers of the railroa<
Benjamin Elliott, colored, testified that c
Monday afternoon, about half-past six o'cloe
he was driving his cart through Woolie-stree
when he heard the bell on the engine ringinj
and he stopped for the train to pass by. Ti
engine and train were passing very slow. Whi
waiting he heard a person screaming undi
the cars, and immediately jumped off his eau
and tried to notify the engineer, but it was tc
two minutes before the car was stopped, as o
account of the noise of the bell the enginec
could not hear. As soon as the cars were sto|
ped, witness assisted in moving Mary Meeba
from under the cars. Three cars had passe
the spot when he heard the screiming.
Dedrick Boden testified that he lived at th
corner of the railroad track and Woolfe-streel
and heard the screaming. He went to th
spot, and saw the woman laying near th
track, with three or four men alongside. H
then went to the guardhouse and reported th
facts to lieutenant Campbell, who asked hie
to go for a doctor, which he did. Witnes
stated that the officer having charge ot th
road has always a man in front of the road, an<
another in the rear, also a bell constantly
ringing while they are shifting the cars.
John J. Borden testified that he was a dis
patcher of trains on the South Carolina Rail
road, and always was at the spot when a tran
was moving. There was always a man aheac
of the train, and another in the rear, to notify
the public of the approach of a train. The eu?
gine used is a shifting engine, and has a large
bell fixed on springs, which is rung whenevei
the engine is in motion. Witness heard of the
accident while in the discharge of his duties:
and he farther stated that all precautions were
used to prevent accidents.
Sam Gibbes, colored, testified that he was
working at the corner of Woolie and Meeting
streets; heard the alarm and went to the track;
the bell was ringing and until the train stopped;
the woman was lying aB described, she having
avidently attempted to pass under the cars.
Nat Pinckney, colored, testified that he had
long known deceased, and she was generally
considered a person of unsound mind.
J. P. Bland testified that on Monday last he
was shifting cars as engineer on tbe South
Carolina Railroad track. While in the per?
formance of this duty he heard the words
"hold on," or something to that effect; he im?
mediately stopped the engine and sent his
fireman to eee what was the matter; he report?
ed a woman under the oars. Every precaution
had been used.
Mary Kenny, a nurieat the Hampstead Hos?
pital, testified that the deceased said she at?
tempted to cross the track by passing under
tho cars, when the accident occurred.
On hearing this testimony, the jury returned
rt verdict that Mary Meehan came to her death
by a careless exposure of herself while the
train of cars on the South Carolina Railroad
was in motion, in attempting to effect ber pas?
sage between the cars. The jury further find
.hat the officers of the said road had used all
jroper precautions on said occasion to prevent
DELINC?JENT TAX-PAYEES.-These unfortu
?ates will do well to pay their taxes at once,

viii be neccessary to lay in a store of Bills
Receivable, which are now for sale by Huger
I. O. O. F.
Our readers are too familiar with the mean?
ing of the initials at tho bead of this article to
need any explanation from us. The organiza?
tion of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows,
as it now exists in this country, dates ita ori?
gin from the institution of Washington
Lodge, No. 1, of the City of Baltimore, on the
26th day of April, 1810, not quite fifty years
ago. Since that time, its principles have
spread so rapidly, that at the present period
there is not a State or Territory of this vast
Union where its members may not be found.
These principles are the noblest that could en?
gage the mind and heart of man-Friendship,
Love and Truth-Friendship, in its fullest ex?
tent, to his fellow man; Love, in its highest
essence, to God, and the beneficent influences
of Truth regulating his every action.
The above date has been selected by the su?
preme head of the Order-the Grand Lodge of
the United States-as the anniversary, and we
are pleased to learn that the Grand Lodge of
this State, together with the subordinate
Lodge s and Encampments, contemplate hav?
ing a public celebration; but as the 26th falls
on Sunday this year, they have selected Tues?
day evening the 28th instant, at which time an
address will be delivered by our esteemed fel?
low-citizen, General Wilmot G. DeSausaure,
Past Grand Sire of the Order, who is eminently
fitted for the duty, and we anticipate a rich
treat. The services will also be rendered more
interesting by the addition of appropriate
music. The Wentworth-street Lutheran
Church has been kindly granted for the occa?
sion, by the Vestry, and being in a central po?
sition is weh adapted for the purpose.
It may be interesting to our readers to give
the ligures connected with the operations of
the Order in the promotion of its object, and
wo subjoin the following, from the "American
Odd Fellow," a magazine published in New
York, by P. G. M. John W. Orr, but which we
perceive has a South Carolina column edited
by the Grand Secretary of this jurisdiction :
"The report of the doings of the fraternity
for the year ending June 30th, 1867, in connec?
tion with its former history, places the Order
in the front rank of all benevolent institutions
or organizations for the relief of suffering and
distress incident to human life, and cannot fail
to attract attention. .
"Omitting, say twenty years, of the early his?
tory of the Order, for which we can get no re?
ports of accounts paid benevolent objects, indi?
cated above, we condense the sums for various
purposes up to the year 1867,and every one must
confess that the 'Order of Odd Fellows' is an
institution of active benevolence, surpassed by
few other associations, if equalled by any in
this country :
Amount paid for relief of brothers.. $2,859,060.00
Amount for relief of widowed fami?
From 1861 to 1867. 3,353,308.89
Same items previous years. 7,202,374.87
Education of orphans. 234,405.80
Burying the dead. 1,760,820.55
"The total revenue of the Order during the
earn j time has been tho large sum of $28,525,
587.96, showing a reserve now on hand of
nearly $16,000,000! which is devoted to kindred
purposes. Surely, while some cavil at the
seemingly frivolous name of the Order, it must
be properly named after all, for they certainly
are 'Odd' Fellows, from the great bulk of sel?
fish mankind, to zealously keep up an organi?
zation so extended, and so unostentatiously
dispense benevolence and charity for the relief
of distress. Truly if
" 'The drying up of a single tear has more
" 'Of honest tame than shedding seas of gore,'
and 'if a tree is known br its fruits,' the fra?
ternity of Odd Fellows may claim an import?
ant auxiliary place among the good of all creeds,
for the ameliorating of human suffering and
the elevation of man."_
THE Cm ELECTIONS.-The time is rapidly
approaching when our citizens will be called
upon to declare their choice for the men who
are to fill the public offices. The time is al?
ready at hand when it should be discussed, if
not determined, what vital changes are neces?
sary to enable us to keep step to the march of
events. Progress is the order of the day.
Much that is old is useless. Let it be cast
aside. Much baa been done which, tested by
experience, has proved to be a failure. Let
such ordinances also be expunged from the
record. Give us liberal institutions. Give us
a system of taxes for local improvements that
shall not compel the entire community to
share the expenses that should be borne by a
few. Give us a system of wharfage that will
not drive trade from the port, or create mons?
ter monopolies to the injury of our merchants.
Abolish the tax on gross sales, so demoralizing
to every business mau. Break up tbe rings
that ?eek to control and be responsible for the
sentiments of tho community. Give the young
and energetic men of the day a chance
to work. Put them in your high places, your
offices of trust, and let us enjoy "thc benefit
that ever accrues from a high order of practi?
cal intelligence combined with the will and am?
bition to no. What above all tbiugs is requir?
ed by Charleston is a "shaking among thc dry
bones." Until then, she will lag behind in the

A Monster Speculation on Foot.
THE FANCY JOBB EB S AX WOBE IN WASHINGTON
POET BOYAL TO BECOME A- FINANCIAL G BAB
BAG-A NEW SCHEUE FOE MAEING MONEY
Ioformation of a reliable character has been
received here that the Finance Committee of
the United States Senate have under consider?
ation the subject of railroads in South Carolina;
and that a proposition has been made by cer?
tain speculators to build an au* line railroad
from Port Royal to Aiken, thence to Ninety
Six on the Greenville road, where connection is
complete with the Blue Ridge Railroad to its
present terminus at Walhalla. This proposi?
tion is based upon the contingency that Con?
gress shall grant a subsidy of fivo thousand
dollars a mile to the Blue Ridge road for the
purposes of construction-and the Senate com?
mittee are now gravely considering the pro?
priety of recommending this appropriation.
Probably a wilder scheme was never laid be?
fore a body of legislators, or a more unblush?
ing attempt made to plunder the public treas?
What ls Port Royal? At best best a mere
negro town in embryo, where a few shanties
and sutler's shops have for the time being
reared their ragged shapes, and served to
diversify the dreary topography of the place.
It is situated, however, at the head of a fine
harbor, and this one fact has induced the
speculator to believe that by properly bleeding
the public, something may be accomplished
for himself in particular, and somebody's rail?
road in general. He has laid out the town into
building lots ; and plans of the new city are
no doubt in Wall-street, as well as Washington,
but it is beyond all cavil that its chief settlers
for the next ten years will be a poor colored
population, who will not add one dollar to the
material interests of the locality, or of the
Again, if anybody will look at the map, it
will be found that the route of the contempla?
ted road will bring it into direct competition,
on parallel lines, with the Savannah River and
South Carolina Railroad. The country is bare
and sparsely populated, and has not business
enough to keep a line of omnibuses ali VJ, much
less a railroad-so that the advantages of a
through route would, in a pecuniary point of
view, be onset by competition, small trade,
and the expense of keeping up communica?
If Congress or anybody else seriously enter?
tain the idea of an appropriation for the bene?
fit of the Blue Ridge Railroad, let it be for the
purpose of completing that important enter?
prise. If they still have more money to spend,
and will not run on the Greenville Road, let
them build a line from Ninety-Six to the South
Carolina Railroad, and then, by a nearly direct
line, the stores of the Middlo States and
the great West will be poured into tho lap of
The idea that Port Royal will be our Liver?
