EAST BAX IMPROVEMENTS.-The owners of
-..property on East Bay have takes advantage of
- the doll season to rentare the ravages made by
-time. Two stores on the east side, below
- .Queen-street, are now being refitted, and will
-be ready for occupants before Ihe fall season
-Opens. Buildings are also in process of erec
*ion on tho same side of the. street, near the
.market, and opposite-the cotton press. These
axe hopeful signs of the times, as those per
. -sons who are investing in brick and, mor ?ar
- feel confident of the ultimate prosperity of our
- city,' and are ooing>llrn their power to accom
. :plish this desired end.
A PLANK ROAD ' WANTED.-A petition has
-been presented to Council asking that body to
.-restore the plank road that was- formerly laid
in John, Chapel and Washington streets. This
'road is much noeded, as, during a dry soa
- 300, the sand i? very heavy and. almost impaa
--sable, while a Tain. converts the whole into a
: mud pond. -The Northeastern Railroad is only
-approachable through t hos o streets, Iud dur?
ing the busy season cotton drays have fre
? qaently stalled, as the road is then badly cut
up by the constant travel. A plank road which
' -would remedy this evil could be laid ata
-.- small expense, a portion of which would be,
. -doubtless, contributed by that class of citizens
who would receive the' most benefit from the
*-- improvement. _'
A BARBER-OCS PROCKEDLNO.- The knights of
' the lather and brush have recently become
-aroused to ?he heinous' crime of Sabbath break?
ing, and have in solemn conclave requested
- . Council to order them to close their establish -
- -meats on Sunday. Their religious feelings
- luve been, deeply moved, and, unless their re?
quest should be granted,- the band of brothers
' will baiber-oualy lower their poles, and refuse
- - the ungodly the benefit of a Sunday shave. It
has been customary for the barber shops to re
z mam open for a few honre on Sunday morning,
. tau the patronage was always a sufficient in
- daoement for them to continue, the practice.
-As free agents they have a right to close their
^establishments if they so desire; but men
. must shave, and there will be some of the fra?
ternity whoso consciences will prove elastic
. enough to permit them to perform the desired
ANOTHER REHOVATTON.-Although it was the
- ".intention or the Board of Public Buildings to
-'confine their improvements to the exterior of
~the Courthouse, yet the contrast between the
''freshly colored walls and the dingy weather
'- stained glasses, was too .great to be permitted
'-to remain.. Yesterday men were engaged in
-scrubbing the window panes and endeavoring
-to restore something of their former transpar
. ency. A. clear window pane is rather an un?
common sight in legat precincts, as the lights
-of the bar are usually content with their own
illuminating powers, and the windows of the
Courthouse have not received a thorough
cleaniog'for many years. When the scaffold?
ing is removed, the clear windows and cream
? colored walls of the Courthouse will give the
* venerable p?e.?prite a juvenile appearance.
TKB DEMO CB ?TIO ??SETTNG OS TuESDAr N
-IHE ATTEMPTS TO CREATE A DISTURBAN
WO alluded briefly yesterday to the oin
stance that a number of negroes attempt?
interrupt the Democratic meeting held 01
previous night, by shouting and cheerio
Grant and Colfax. Facts which have i
come to light show that the colored me
the outskirts of the crowd were acting act
ing to a pre-arranged plan, and tba
wavL.their purpose to provoke a collisio:
tween the Democrats and the Radicals.
,Soon after- the meeting was organized,
tree-boxes near the stand were torn dow
the Radical negroes. These were their a
and they at once began to yell and curse ai
white men near them. They shouted, "d
with the rebels," "drive 'em home," "cut t
throats," "d-' the white monkeys," var;
the tune occasionally by calling for tl
cheers for Grant, and by attempting to s
"Bally round the flag."
The white people aud the colored Democ
who were with them took no notice of tl
demonstrations, and the meeting was qui
adjourned when Judge Aldrich had finis
speaking. After the adjournment a numbe
negroes crowded up to the platform, sa^
they would at once use it for a Grant and 1
fai m "ting. In this they were disappoiu
for Ult s* i.vd was guarded by the member
the Democratic committee until it was ta
One of the peculiar features of the occas
was a stump speech made by Sam Dickers0:
colored Radical. Ho told the negroes t
they were a disgrace to their party; that
Democrats did not interrupt their mee ti 1
and they must not trouble the Democrats, ?
that if they did they wonld bring down u]
themselves the ill-will of the whole commun
Tais was not palatable to the negroes, v
threatened him with violence, and he wo
have been mobbed bat for the protection gi'
him by the police.
There is no donbt that the whole movem
was directed and arranged by the white le
era of the Radicals. I'he forbearance and
tience of the Democrats averted any outbre
but if Buch demonstrations are allowed to c
.tinco there must be serious trouble. It ia 1
duty of the police to see that peaceful pul
meetings are not interfered with, and as
Democrats never molest the Radicals wi
they have their gatherings, it is expected tl
they themselves shall not be annoyed by t
foul words and gestures of? a few turbo!
THE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS AND THE NE?
ELECTED STATE OFFICERS.-The Board
County Commissioners, so-called, succeed
yesterday in obtaining a room in the Fi
Proof Building, and remained in session c
ring the morning, prepared to approve t
bonds of the newly elected oounty office
None were, however.offered. Mackey produc
no other names, though the tax books we
examined and the 'amounts set opposite t
names of several colored tax-payers eirena
noted^ Hurley, the aspirant for tho positi
of Coroner, was present, but had no bone
men, and said that he had not yet gi
en the subject any attention. Biohmon
the "Clerk of the Court," is still in Columbi
where he is employed in lobbying through
bill amending the act passed by the last Legi
lat ure, which states that, if good and sufiicie
sureties are not furnished within thirty da
after the election, the office of any public of
cer who shall fail to comply with the requis
tiona of this section of the act within the sa
thirty days, shall be regarded as vacan ;. Th
act is still in force, and under its provisioi
none 04 the carpet-baggers can legally quali;
if they were even able to furnish approve
The County Commissioners have not y<
made any legal demand on the chairmen of t fc
different Boards of Public Buildings, Poo
Roads, Ac, for their papers And fonds reman
ing on hand, but are waiting for.those officia!
to respond to the published notice. If no ai
ewer ia given to (his appeal, F. C. Miller, th
Chairman of the County Commissioners, wi
make a formal demand for a transfer, and i
case of a refusal will report the contumacion
Boards to Governor Scott. The County Con
missioners have now been in session three da j
and have accomplished nothing, though thei
duties under the new constitution are man
fold, and their field ext en jive.

OHE COPY of TEE DAILY NEWS for the Presi?

THE ORS OF 4 GABPET-BAOQEE.- The fol?
lowing letter is sent to us by one "of that
unfortunate class who, by force of circum?
stances, were compelled to land in tbe.company
bf the great Mackey, but, who to-day, see tho
error of their ways, and, with carpet-bag in
hand, will go their way and sin no more:"
CHARLESTON, July 28.
To the Editor of the Daily News :
Your local of yesterday gare notice that the
great Mackey and his friends, for his defeat at
Columbia, are going to take the stump against
"ye carpet-baggers." If this is their intention,
as one of that unfortunate class, I hope that
"the great 'Mogal" will, before commencing
the war, return to the friends of "ye carpet?
baggers" the $50,000 he got from them in 18G5;
release his carpet-bag bondsman from his cns
house bond; return to "ye oarpet-baggera' the
stamps put out to secure bis election to the
Senate, which he did not get; return to the in?
nocent Dennis, the happy Chamberlain, the
virtuous Jackson, the broken-hearted Hoyt,
the wandering bond-hunter Parker, and
the Christian Bowen, the tears the)' shed
at his defeat. Let him call homo the
knowing Thomas, and at the same time
give notice to his landlady of bis having
refunded tbe $300 sent down to MacGregor to
start a Radical paper, which, np to this time,
has never been paid, two years and more. Make
MacGregor resign his office, got by the wire?
pulling of "ye carpet-baggera" from Berkeley.
Return thanks to Gov. Scott,' a carpet-bagger,
for getting him into the Convention, and its
President, against the wishes of a majority of
its members (the intelligent ones.) Re?
turn thanks to the Attorney-General, Cham?
berlain, "ye carpet-bagger,'' for appearing
in bis behalf at the Ashley meeting in Colum?
bia in this State when he was in another State
not far ofL Let him ask the Republicans of j
the State to give bim the credit of carrying
the constitution by going ont five days, instead
of Corbin, Chamoerlain, Elliott, Whipper,
Wright, Sawyer, Cain, Whitten?ore, Jil Ison,
Scott, and other carpet-baggers, who spent
weeks on the stump. Let him do tbls, Mr.
Editor, and "ye carpet-baggers" will gladly
part company with a man that has been and
will be, for all time to come, a dead-weight to
any party, and more so to "ye carpet-baggers;"
who. if they could, would gladly write on his
"Withered be the gnus above him,
Enemy of our better days.
None knew bim to luve him,
None named him to praise."
