ST. MICHAEL'S CHUBCH.-As improvements
are now the order of the day, and the build?
ings at the intersection of Broad sad Meeting
streets are fast assuming a now and comely
appearance, attention has been drawn to St.
Michael's Church, which, as one of the old
landmarks of Charleston, deserves to receive
the same attention as the publio buildings on
.the opposite corners. The past few years have
wrought some changes in building operations,
and it has been found that the light cream
tint, now so fashionable, stands the influences
of our climate far better than the darker
shades. St. Michael's was originally a pure
white, and the tall spire was then one of the
first objects visible at sea; but when it was re?
paired some years bock it received its present
sombre hue. The action of the weather, the
neglect during the wer and other causes com?
bined to injure this dark coloring, and the base
of the steeple now presents a mottled appear?
ance that sadly dutraots from the beauty of the
edifice. Some effort should be made to have
-thia venerable fane renovated.
THE REPUBLICAN MEETING LABT NIGHT
INCENDIABI SPEECHES.-In response to a pub?
lished call, th^rcwas a meeting of the Ra
publican party las t. night at the Club House,
"to consider the Presidential and municipal
elections." There were about two hundred
persons present, among whom were a few
white faces, all of* whom, with one exception,
took positions on the stage. After some delay
the meeting was called to order by Lafayette C.
Woolie (white), who proposed F. C. Miller
(white) as chairman, and he waa chosen ac?
cordingly. Miller came forward, and, after re?
turning elaborate thc r*ks from a written speech
held ne?** Lia face, proposed Marshal Ep?
ping as the first speaker. No response
being made, he announced Gilbert Pillsbury,
who was grcated with rousing cheers. Pills?
bury referred to the approaching Presidential
and municipal elections, and said if their real
or pretended friends in Columbia would wake
up and give them the ballot box he would not
say who would be Mayor, but he would say that
you (the party) can elect whom you please,
[Cheers. ] If a President were elected by the
Bepubhoan party it would be the harbinger of
peace and prosperity, but if by the Democrats
it would lead the country to ruin, disgrace,
disloyalty and despotism.
[At this stage of the proceedings there was
a flourish of trumpets heard outside, and the
crowd parting showed Collector A. G. Mac^y,
United States Marshal Epping, and the young?
er Mackey advancing up the aisle. They were
greeted with loud shouts.]
Resuming his speech, Pillsbury indulged in
several witticisms levelled again st the Demo?
cratic party and their recent public meetings,
but his jokes were pointless and fell on barren
Marshal Epping was then introduced, and j
said that it was expected that General How?
ard would have addressed them to-aight, but
that he was tired from bis travel, and as he
had learned that the meeting was called for
party purposes, as an officer of the United
States army he could not speak, but hoped to
do ao at some future day. The speaker then
launched out into a bitter partisan harangue,
fgjj urged his hearers to organize at once,
holding up for their emulation the example of
the Democratic clubs. He said that their pre?
vious organization had been a failure because
they had elected treasurers who had used the
money of the party for private purpoaeb. He
(Epping) was the treasurer of the State Com?
mittee, and he had received no money as yet.
They ought to elect committees of responsible
men, and especially an executive committee
and ? competent treasurer. This should be
done in every parish. Let the wards meet and
work like the Democrats, and they would have
the victory. The D?mocrate: were thoroughly
organized. Even the fire companies had pre?
pared and were all armed (this, he said, he had
learned frem good authority). They, however,
need not be feared, aa the Militia bill would
soon pass, giving the Republicans the power;
but a special organization was Deeded for
Charleston of two-regiments and two batteries
to overawe the rebels, to preserve the peace at
Resolutions were adopted calling for a mass
m eu ting of the Union League at the Military
Hall, on the 17th instant, and after a long
speech from A. G. Mackey, much in the same
B train aa Epping's, the meeting adjourned.
Subsequently the crowd repaired to the
Chariest m Hotel and, serenaded Gen. Howard,
but though loud calls were made for that
officer, he did not appear.
TEX CASE OF COBONEK WALKES.-The Co?
lumbia Phoenix says that Messrs. James D.
Tradeweli and Fielding & Pope, counsel for
Coroner Walker, submitted their return and
answer before so-called Judge Wi Hard, on lues
day morning. The substance of this docu?
ment, with the exception of the following, was
published yesterday morning :
That the said Thomas P. Walker is now the
legally appointed Coroner of Richland Dis?
trict, appointed to hold for four years and un?
til a successor shall be appointed; and that
such successor has not been so appointed, and
that W. B. Johnston is not Coroner legally ap?
pointed by the laws and Constitution of the
State of South Carolina, and of the Constitu?
tion of the United States., That if the said W.
B. Johnston has been appointed Coroner, as
aforesaid, his term of office has not vet com?
menced, nor can his said term of office com?
mence until the term of office of the said Thom?
as P. Walker, this respondent, has expired
which term will not expire until the 21st day of
December, which will be in the year of our
Before the above answer and return was
read, the counsel submitted a motion to trans?
fer the case to the United States Court, on the
ground that it involved the constitutionality of 1
a law of Congress. Upon this there was an
animated argument. Mr. Fielding opened the
argument at much length. He was folio wed
by Mr. Pope on the samo aide. The Attorney
General (so-called) replied, and Mr. Tradeweli
dosed the argument. The Associate Justice
(so-called) overruled the motion, and peremp?
torily ordered the case forward un its merits.
Mr. Pope opened the argument, and after
speaking about a quarter of an hour, he pro?
posed to show that, under the lawful Constitu?
tion of South Carolina, the lawful judges of the
State could alone try the case. Here he was
interrupted by the Attorney-General (so-call?
ed), saying such a line of argument was insult?
ing to this Court, and moved that counsel be
arrested in his argument. Mr. Pope retorted,
and asli ed if the Court and counsel were afraid
of truth and light. The Judge said he would
take time to consider whether the argument of |
Mr. Pope would be insulting, and adjourned
the case until Wednesday morning, when Mr.
Pope was to resume .his argument under the
ruling of the Court.

. ACCIDENT ON THE SOUTH I CABOUHA BULBOKV
-A NEURO TTTT,T,-rn AND HoHBTBLT. MANGLED.
The passengers on the down train from Sum?
merville yesterday morning reported that
the body of an unknown negro was seen near
the ten mile hill in a horribly mangled condi?
tion. Coroner Whiting waa notified, and left
yesterday afternoon for the scene of the acci?
dent to hold an inquest. The supposition is
that the negro was asleep on the track and
was run over by the Tuesday's night train, and
that the early daylight train of yesterday had
also passed over the remains, which cut them
up in the manner described. From the repre?
sentations made it would seem almost impossi?
ble to identify the body, as all semblance of
humanity was lost.
MB. SEBBTNO'S INSURANCE AGENCY.-The

New York, and the North British and Mercan?
tile Insurance Company of London and Edin?
burgh. These are two of the most staunch
and well managed insurance corporations rep?
resented in the Southern States, and their for?
tunate selection of an agent possessing the
business qualifications and experience ol' Mr.
Sebring will doubtless go fir towards extend?

A DESPERATE CHABACTEB.--John Henry
Thomas, alias Savannah Slocum, the colored
man whose arrest for house-breaking was
noticed yesterday, is an accomplished villain.
He was the ringleader in the recent attempted
esoape from jail, though his term of confine?
ment was nearly ended, and has on two sepa?
rate occasions succeeded in breaking the bolts
and bars of that prison honse, and giving his
jailors the slip. Though an ignorant, uncouth
and repulsive negro, he is not devoid of that
low cunning which is a characteristic of many
of the race, and a common case knife Tn his
hands is soon converted into a saw, and bolts
and bars too often yield before his persistent
efforts to sever them. His previous escapes
were effected with an old knife which had been
smuggled into the jail by some means, and it
is to be hoped that, as the first use he made of
his freedom was to break the laws, he will now
be confined in a oell that will defy his in?
The Inspection of .\aval Stores.
To ike Editor of the. Daily News :
''Tar Heel" is referred to an act of the Legis-1
lature, passed December 20, 1856, a part of ?
which reads as follows :
Section 8. "For every barrel' of turpentine
or rosin weighed by the Inspector, he shall be
entitled to three cent*, ana for every barrel
inspected and branded, as herein directed,
three and one-quarter cents to be paid by the
owner of said turpentine or his agent, and the
inspector shall have a lien on said barrels for
the amount due."
Section 4.-"and the Inspector
shall not be permitted to purchase, directly or
indirectly, any turpentine or rosin for sale or
exportation, under a penalty of ten dollars per
From the foregoing it will be seen that the
charge for inspection allowed by law is much
less than the Wilmington rates. If larger fees
are paid, it is the fault of the owners or their
agents; and in regard to inspectors purchas?
ing, the remedy is in their own banda.

CHABEESTON, August 12, 1868.
To the Editor of the Daily Newt :
For the information and benefit of distillers of

tention to the subjoined act of the General As?
sembly of South Carolina, which explains it?

The inspector shall not be permitted to pur?
chase, directly.or indirectly, any turpentine or
rosin for Bale or exportation under a penalty of
ten dollars per barrel.

8Dinted annually by the City Council of
