Bl OWES KtBEBIIE.
That man is great, and be alone.
Who serves a greatness not ala own,
For neither praise nor peri;
Content to know and be unknown,
Whole In Mmwif.
Strong ia that man, he only strong,
To whose well-o -dared will belong,
For service and delight,
All powers that, is the lace of Wrong,
And free he is, and only he,
Who from his tyrant passions free,
By Fortune undismayed,
Hath power upon himself to bo
By himself obeyed.
If such a man there be, where'er
Beneath the sun and moon he fare,
fie cannot fare amiss;
Great Nature hath him in her care ;
Her cause is his.
Who holds by everlasting law,
Which neither chaceo nor change can flaw:
Whose steadfast course is one,
With whatsoever forces draw
The ages on.
If such a man there be, where'er
Beneath the sun and moon he fare,
He doth not fare alone;
He goeth Birt with cohorts' powers.
The monarch of his manful hour.-,
Whose mind's his throne.
He owes no homage to the sun:
There's nothing he need seek or shun;
AU things axe his by right;
He is his own posterity;
His future in himself doth lie;
His soul's his light
Lord of a lofty life ia he,
Loftily hving, though he be
Or lowly birth; though poor.
He lacks not wealth, nor nigh degree.
In state obscure.
The merely great are, all in aD,
No more than what the merely email
Esteem them. Alan's opinion
Neither conferred, nor can recall,
This man's dominion.
PROCEEDINGS OF CITV COUNCIL.
COUNCIL CHAMBEE, May 19,1868.
Present-The Mayor, and Aldermen Gerdts,
Small, O'Neill. Willis, Steinmoyer, Olnev, Oakes,
Marshall, Wbilden, Euston and Parker.
The minutes or the hut meeting were read
and confirmed. ?,
The Mayor, before proceeding with the regu?
lar order of business, made a few brief remarks,
touching on such matters now before Council
which could not be acted upon immediately In
consequence of the short duration of the term
of office of this administration. The first waa
the proposition of the- Bailway Transportation
Company. He could not refrain from express?
ing his opinion that if the road was not con?
.trnoted at this time, the interests of the com?
munity would demand that it ehonid be at no
distant day; for if the road was not built,
the lower part of the city property would be?
come valueless. As there seemod to be great
opposition al this time to the proposition, he
would withdraw the petition. Also, the matter
Of the continuation of Waehington-Btreet. He
called attention to the condition of the fceas
ury, and hoped that no more appropriations
would be made by this Council, if it could be
possibly avoided. He had discharged all work?
men not absolutely necessary. The repairs
. io the street pavements were steadily progress?
ing; abo the fencing in of open and vacant
lots-the owners of property being assessed to
defray the expenses of the same; this princi?
ple, he thought, should prevail as a just one,
and that citizens should not be generally as
eeeeed for improvements made m particular
: He informed Council that the annual meet?
ing of the Dir ec era of tho Memphis and Char?
leston Railroad Company would take place on
the 26th inst. Mr. W. 8. Hastie, an old direc?
tor, was unable to attend this meeting, and had
tendered his letter of resignation. In justice
to Mr. Hastie, who bad done a great deal of
good for the city in the capacity of a director,
he hoped that the resignation would not be
accepted. He therefore nominated Mr. James
H. Taylor aa a a ni tab le person to represent the
city temporarily. The question was put and I
Mr. Tay tor's nomination was confirmed. His
attention had been favorably enlisted in the ?
proposed increase of five hundred dollars to
the salaries of tbe teachers of the Orphan
- -House, and trusted that the matter woola re?
ceive the approval ot Council.
The construction and cleansing of privies
was a matter of great importance. No vault ;
should be constructed below the surface of the
earth or pits dug, and the clean am g should be
done during the winter months.
A thorough system of drainage should be.
adopted, as the future sanitary condition of
-the city depended upon it. At the next meet-,
mg a foll report ot all improvements and ex?
penses woola be made.
He thought the salary of the engineer was
insofficient for one holding such an imponant
office, and recommended an increase. As to
the increase- of salaries of the officers of the
police, he recommended that the matter be re- j
furred to the Committee on Belief.
The Mayor then proceeded with the regular
order of business.

. porting the condition of the scale bonse at the
tower end of the market as needing repairs to

To the Assistant A?jvtant-Gencral, Second Milita
Sra: The petition of thc City Council
Charleston, 8. G., for a modification of the e
isting provisions of military orders concernir
landlord and tenant, referred to this office f
examination, is respectfully r M urned with tl
following i em arlie:
The memorialists, setting forth that forme
Iv, under tho law of tho State, the remedy
distress for rent was .enjoyed, and that whi
that remedy has been abolished by military o
ders, no other, Xor tbe purpose has been au!
stituted, represent tJW hardships thereby n
suit to land owners, and suggest some chane
"which will enable the landlord,-toareasoi
able time, to compel tbe payment of rent t
the tenant.". In other words, the District Con
mander is asked to provide summary prooef
for the collection af this species of demand:
or. in short, to restore the remedy of dist res.
which was abolished by Paragraph IX of Gei
end Orders No. 29 (of 1867), from these heat
A careful and candid consideration of rbi
petition leads the Judge Aavocate of the Dit
trict to express the firm conviction, not onl
that the abolition of distress for rent was, a
the time of the adoption of that measure,
wise and beneficent reform, but that the rec
toration of that remedy, now, being called fo
by neither justice nor expediency, would be
retrograde step in tho municipal law of Sont:
That remedy, derived by the Gothic nation
from the Code of Borne, naturally ilourishet
among feudal instilutions, and was transplant
ed to England os an incident of that oppress i vi
system under which the tenant, as well as t hi
products of bis labor, was subject to the wil
of tbe lord ot the soil. It enabled tbe latter tc
seize for his arrears of rent whatever propel t\
he might find on the premises, no matter oi
what nature, or to whom belonging. Ad van o
ing civilization bas everywhere circumscribed
and relaxed a proceeding too haren and arbi?
trary for enforcement among enlightened peo?
ple. Tiie State of New Yora long since abo!
ished it as "an invidious distinction in favoi
of a particular class of creditors, which ha;
survived similar remedies applicable to other,
debts sometimes operating unjustly towarde
other classes of creditors who are equally en?
titled to protection."
The courts of North Carolina, too, bave held
it to be inconsistent with the spirit of the laws
and government of that commonwealth, and
baje declared that it '? unknown to her judica?
But, in South Carolina this relic of barbarism
survived and was cherished. By the law of
1808, indeed, tbe landlord could distrain for
double rent where the tenant held over fox
three montbB after notice to quit. (3 McCord,
It is true that statesmanlike counsels, urging
ita repeal, were sometimes offered. In 1822,
the eminent Mr. Justioe Bay, in the caso ol
Yonngblood against Lowry et ai (2 McCord, R.
39,) in delivering tbe opinion ol the constitu?
tional court, in which all the judge* concurred,
remarked as follows, concerning distress :
"This authority, allowed by law to a land?
lord to be hie own avenger, or of administering
redress to himself, is the relic of the old feuds)
System, and became extremely oppressive, to
the community at large, as no man's plupart?
was safe rrcm the all-grasping power, of land?
holders. The property of strangers traveling
through a country calling for hospitality, or
neighbors visiting or holding a friendly inter?
course with each other, or their cattle straying
or accident!; found on thc premises in posses?
sion of another, were oh liable to te distrained
for rent, although they bad ?ever made any
contract with the owner .of tiie soil, or even
knew that any rent was due irom the tenant for
the uso of the lands he Occupied. By means
whereof one man's r^perty was taken away
from him forcibly, ark without his consent, tb
pay the debt of r> "Aird person, to whom ho
was never und?r>?feiy obligation, which ia clear?
ly inconsistent Vrith every idea of justice, and
that security'^ property whioh every citizen
ought to esjCry'in a free country. I am very much
disposed to think that this whole system of dis?
tress tor -Ftat was inappl cable to tho circum?
stance Originally of the British colonies, where
tbe anoint feudal system was utterly unknown.
and -nothing but colonial dependenco could
ever :havo permitted it to gain a footing in
America in subservience to British policy; ac?
cordingly some of the olonies. particularly
Connecticut (and I am informed Rhode Island;,
: never permitted this law of distress for rent to
be introduced. Everything in that State de?
pends upon contract, by which alone a man
ought tc be made liable for dent, and his goods
subjected to seizure aud sale. And it may ono
day, and that perhaps not a very distant day.
become a question well worthy of tbe attention
of the Legislature of this State, whether they
will not aboli;-h it in South Carolina, aud place
the contract for rent on the same footing with
all other contractsxfcotween men."
This State, nevertheless, clung to the
remedy, and it was reserved for General
Sickles, fortv-five years after thc dato of he
opinion of Judge Bay, to abolish thc odious
