in regard to the cotton crop of that section,

ACCIDENT ON THE SOUTH CAROLINA RAIL
. ROAD,-Aa accident occurred yesterday morn?
ing at 6 o'clock, to : the up Colombia No. 1
freight train, near the four mile board. The
train was ronoiag in regalar schedule time,
when the conductor's car jumped oft" tho hind?
most truch, and that ond fell on tho track
and WAS dragged along on the road. The con?
ductor, Mr. F.. O'Boorke, and h is two train men
jumped oat of the car. Tho track following,
ran upon Mr. David Ferrell, one of the men,
cutting bis ruht leg nearly off below tho knee.
Tb. Ferrell was brought to the city, und Dr.
Kinloch amputated tbs leg jost above the kneo
. joint Mr. Ferrdl is an upright and industri?
ous man, and waa,- previous to the late war, a
freight .'.ond udor on the road. He served dar?
ing tbe whole war in the Confederate army, and
at thc c?ese of hostilities returned to the rail?
road, lhere being at that time no conduc?
tor's place vacant, he took a position as train
hand. He was a yoong unnamed man, well
thought of by his em plo} rs, and ho had al
- ready boon e elected as the conductor of a new
train which was being formed, when he met
with the UL 'ort u nate accident above described.
AN EX 'IUPLZ OF THE IMPORTANCE OF AD
vERTisTNa.-Our merchants should bear it in
mind that tho cotton crop is now creating a
comparative abundance of money io the coon
try, and that we have, therefore, entered the
.period when judicious and liberal advertising
?will yield rich returns. We commend to their
. attention the following which we copy from
tbe Marion Star, of yesterday:
A gentlemen stepped into our office a few
days since ana asked if we could direct him to
a carpet 68tabita hment in Charleston or Wil?
mington. Wo told him that we thought we
- could. In vain we searched our Charleston
exchanges for an advertisement ot an ostab
lishme.t of this kind. 'Ts it possible," he
said, "that neither of those cities have a carpet
store?" They certainly mast, we replied, but
wo can give yon no positive information that
will direct you to thai class of merchants.
-Just then oro friend picked up the New York
Mercantile Journal, and almost ti e first thing
be noticed was ' Carpetings at wholesale, Nos.
" 71 and 73 Worth-street," and he, without hesi?
tation, determined to send bis order and
money to a oommisHioa ni.rehaut in New York,
and make his purchase there, although his
preference waa to spend bia money nt homo.
Now the net profits ol this bill alone would
have justified any carpet, merchant in Charles?
ton or Wil nington in keeping bis business
prominently before the public for twelve
month-, and the same advertisement might
have scoured several similar ordois. The
above fart Deeds no further comment from us.
Wo think that oar Charleston merchants ought
-by this time to have lsnrned the advantages ot
a liberal ase of printer's irk.
ST. ANDREW'S HALL.-The 8t. Aodrew'a So?
ciety met last night, and among other subjects
the rebuilding of their hall, in Broad-street,
was discussed. Tho subject is, as far as we
can learn, yet in abeyance, but plans have bejn
furnished by Ur. J. H. Devereux that will pro?
bably be accepted by the society. Mr. Deve?
reux has presented a design that is neat, taste?
ful and economical. He proposes to make tho
front of the building somewhat similar to the
former structure; but instead of one flight of
stairs there will be two, one on each side of
the main entrance. On the summit of the
building id a highlander in bold relief, and im?
mediately below the baa relief ol a palmetto
stump, overgrown with thistles, and under all
the motto: "Ne mo impune lacfssit." If the
hall ia constructed on the plan furnished by
Mesare. Devereux, the St. Andiew'a Hall will be
one of the most attractive buildings in the
city, and we hope Uie funds of the society are
sufficient to enable them to commenco opera?
tions at ouce._
A NEW ENTERPRISE-CHARLESTON A GRAIN
AND FLOUR DEPOT.-Among the various en
terprises that the exigencies of the times have
demanded, there are few that will result in
more real improvement to the city than the
extension of the grain and flouring business.
Since the war this branch of trade has receiv?
ed the attention of some of our moat enter
priaing merchauta, and the facilities which
Charleston now enjoys in this direction aro
greater io proportion to th3 total amount o f
the business of the city than they ever were
before, aud perhaps greater than in any other
city. Prominent among those who have de?
voted their attention to thia matter, and havo
combined the public good with their private
business, is the firm of .Messrs. John Campsen
& Co. For a long time engaged in the gram and
flour trade, they last year erected those exten?
sive flour mills on Market-street, opposite State
street, which have since become so well koowo,
and at which some of the best flour known ia
this market ia ground. These mills are
now in full operation, and are supplying a
larg? city and country demand with good flour,
The machinery employed is bf the most im?
proved patents and on a very large scale, thus
securing an accurate separation of the different
grados of flour, and affording an abundant sup?
ply of all to fill any demand that is likely to ex?
ist in this market for several years.
Messrs. John Campsen & Co. have more re?
cently supplied a want long felt by themselves
and the community, by establishing a large
grain depot at the corner of East Bay and
North Atlantic Wharf, where they are now re?
ceiving by railroad and steamers large quanti?
ties of all kinda of grain used in this market.
They are prepared, at the shortest notice, to
All grain orders for home consumption and ex?
port, and will supply the trade on the most
libeial terms. They grind corn meal and corn
flour as well as wheat flour; and any qu nt ?ty
of either of these articles may be bad, both at
the mills in Market-street, and the depot on
A CHANGE OF BASE-THE PALMETTO PIO?
NEER Co-OIRRATTV? ASSOCIATION OCCUPY TOB
Nsw STORE.-It is now nearly two veare since
the formation of a co-operative association was
mooted by the members of the Palmetto Fire
Engin 3 Company. The subject was frequontly
discussed at their meetings; treaties on co-op?
eration were procured and studied, and the re?
sult was that a few who had faith in the sys?
tem banded together, and the Palmetto Pio?
neer Association was born. For a few months
its success was doubtful, but tho members
struggled bravely on. Their ranks received
several accessions, and the moneyed mon of
the community began to toko au interest in
the subject. In framing the constitution, it
was determined to make the shar?a $260
each, which co aid be paid by the stockholders
in instalments of one dollar per week,
from the date of their membership. All pur?
chases axe also credited to the stockholder,
and at the end of each quarter the net profits
of the business are divided among the stock?
holders in the proportiou of one-third to the
amount of instalments paid in, and two-thirds
to the amount of purchases made. The latter
amount is credited to the stockholder ?util his 1
share is paid up. This plan proved to be quite
popular, and the Association was soon in
possession of sufficient funds from instalments
received to warrant them in opening u store.
The capital ou hand was emull, and it was
thought best not to make a too pretentious
s tait, but to continue as heretofore on the road
to success by parallel approaches. The
present store ia Market-street was select?
ed, a stock of groceries obtained, and
the co-operative store fairly put ia work?
ing order. Although the first stop had been
taken, there wei o many in the community who
still predicted a failure, and numorous in?
stances of Buch disastrous results were men?
tioned. This did not affect the prosperity of
the Association. New subscribers carno for?
ward, shores were taken, and many of the
stockholders paid in the full amount at the
time. The busmes3 rapidly increased, and as
the funds accumulated, it became evident that
the old stand was too contracted and the Asso?
ciation would bo only doing justice to the mom
hers by extending their sphere of usefulness.
The first anniversary of the Association was
held on tho 17th of August last at tho Masonic
Hail, and it was then stated that although
commencing with a paid capital of less than
nine hundred dollars, the Association had
prospered bes'ond expectation, and the building
then occupied was found to bo too small
and a more suitable one recommended. The
spacious store at the southeast corner of Meet?
ing and Market streets waa secured and prepa?
rations were at ones commenced for a move.
The store in question was a well-known groce?
ry stand for many years, but has been ocoupied
since the war by Mr. Joseph Walker as a print?
er's warehouse. Some changes were necessa?
ry, as the front wall of the building was in a
dangerous condition, and the intorior dingy
from long disuse. Repairs were immediately
commenced and progressed with euch vigor
that tho Association were enabled yesterday to
commence their long anticipate! move, which
will be completed and tho new house sec in or?
der before tho close of the week. Tho now
stand is one of tho most advantageous for the
grocery basineas in that portion of the city,
and has ample room for a stock of every need?
ed article, sufficient i.ot only for thc supply of J
the members, but for an extended trad?. With
the experience of tho pa3t before thou, the
company cannot fail of success, and tho corner
of Meeting and Market will soon become a fa?
vorite resort of housekeepers and dealers.
The following are the officers of the Associa?
tion, who are re-elected annually:
S. THOMAS, Jr.,-President.
A. 0. STONE, Vice-Pie?idcnt.

The advantages of co-operative societies are

are conducted on tho cash system, in which
there ia no such word as fail, and, under pro?
per management, success is certain. The pres?
ent Association ia ably officered, and the stock?
holders have never regretted their investment.1
MEMORIAL or ras SHZPFIKO MERCHANTS.
The following memorial will be read with in?
terest by onr commercial community. A simi?
lar law to the 'one complained of has beon in
force for some time in Savannah and has not
been objected to either on account of inexpe?
diency or unconstitutionality, but the very fact
of no opposition being made has prevented dis?
cussion, and th9 real merits of the question
w.ll probably be now brought to light for the
first time :
To (he Honorable the Mayor and Aldermen of
the City of Charleston :
The memorial of tho undersigned respect?
fully showeth :
That by the proceedings of your honorable
body it appears that an ordinance to raise sup?
plies for the year 1868, and for other purposes,
is about to be changed and modified in several
particulars, in e-no of which is tho following :
"Ono dollar on every hundred dollars ot au
freight and passenger lists of all steamers or
sailing vessolp, paid or payable in this city, the
same ya able monthly-the consignee or agent
ot sari vessels to bc held liable for the pay?
ment of the same into the hands of the City
And this proposed modification of the said
ordinance, your inemorialUts respectfully sub?
mit is in derogation of the paramount author?
ity of the Constitution and laws of tho United
States, and in its operation calculated to affect
the commerce ot the city, in the restoration of
which all persons interested in the prosperity
of this citv are now so much exercised. Your
memorialists believe that in a class ot' cases
which have been decided by the Supreme Court
of the United States the principle involve lin
this modification had boen held unconstitu?
In the cases now referred to, the local au?
thorities of Now York provided that a certain
officer of that city should be entitled to receive
from tho master of every vessel from a foreign
port, for himself and each passenger, $1 50-1 CO;
for each steerage passenger, $1; and from tho
master of each coasting vessel tor each person
on board, 25-100. The question as to the con?
stitutionality of this law was raised in the lo?
cal courts of New York and thence taken to the
Supreme Court, where it was held unconstitu?
tional. The transportation of passengers, said
tho court, is regulated by Congress; if that
transportation be a branch of commeioe, the
act of New York is a regulation of commerce.
No distinction, said tho court, could be made
os regards the law between the transportation
of merchandise and passengers. For tho trans?
portation of both the shipowner realizes a
profit, and each is the subject ol a commercial
regulation by Congress. \Vh?n tbo merchan?
dise is taken from the ship and becomes min?
gled with tho property of the people of tho
State, like other property it is subject to the
local iaw. Bot until then the merchandise is
an import, not subject to tho taxing po ?er of
tho State; and the same rule applies to passen?
Submitting, thon, respectfully to your hon?
orable body tho question of tbo constitution
ality of the proposed modification of this ordi?
nance as having boen settled by a tribunal of
the highest authority, your memorialists in
addition thereto would briefly ask your consid?
eration of the eff jct of such measure, even if it
No one can be indifferent to the present
conditions of the city, nor unmindful of the
great efforts which have been made, and must
still bo made, to secure for it the prosperity it
once enjoyed. And no means at its command
can be more potential than the encouragement
ot the shipping interest, by which easy, cheap
and prompt transmission of property and per?
sons can bo made to the great marts of busi?
ness which lie north of us. It is only so that
wo can successfully contend with inland routes,
which shorten the distance from other places
and divert travel and trade from our city.
Nor perbaps will it bo for us to bo satisfied
that we are on the road to assured prosperity,
until daily communication by soa with the
ports of the North will, because of its cheap?
ness, expsdition ana convenience, give to tho
city the advantages of a great SouLhcrn
mart. That tho proposed tax will not only
tend to retard the accomplishment of what is
desired, but that it may tend to affect even so
much of it as is already accomplished, can
scarcely ?dmit of a doubt. It is not that
freight should be free that wo havo brought
this proposed modification to your notice, but
it is that freight ah'<uld not be unduly and
doubly taxed, t ..at wo have done BO. All the
freight whicb is paid hore, pays its appropri?
ate tax, under some other namo ; and tho ad?
ditional imposition provided by this modifica?
tion, increases by so much the burden it bears,
diminishes the n'rofit ol the ship owner, alrea?
dy much reduced, and tonds to tne removal
of that interest to other and more profitable

as ? of your honorablo body tha rccjnsidora
tion of this matter, and tho rejection of the

REPOST OF W. S. HASTIE, ESQ., ox THE MEM?
PHIS AND CHARLESTON RAILROAD.-Tho follow?
ing important report was submitted to City
Council at its last meeting :
CHARLESTON, September 22,18G8.
Hon. Geo. W. Clark, Mayor of Charleston :
DEAS Sra : At your roquost I proceeded to
Huntsville, Ali., to represent the City of
Chariest m, and other stockholders of oar
city, in the election for directors of tho Mem?
phis and Charleston Railroad Company, which
took place on the 16th inst., at both Huntsville
Wm. L. Trenholm, Esq., also appointed, was
Erevonted from attonding by circumstances
eyoud his control, but his presence was not
so important, as the ?lection for President
will not take place until tho Board is cale 1 to?
On the retiring of Colonol Tate from the
presidency of tho road, there was a contest be?
tween Huntsville and Momphis for tho presi?
dency, the rcpreseutaltves from Charleston
both voting tor Mr. Bcirno, of Huntsville, whoje
friends were unsuccessful.
Deeming these coutested elections highly
prejudicial to the interest ot tho stockholders,
I called, immoJiatcly on my arrival, upon
Messrs. Boirne, Donogan and Bradley, direct?
ors, residing in Huntsville, and was pleased to
hear from them that they would givo Major
Wick"?, tho present President, their undivided
support; "tbey had too largo an interest in tne
property to create dissension." Tho result
was that the old Board were unanimously
elecied, with the exception of Colonel Tate,
resigned, whoso place wa i filled by W. B. Wal?
dron, of Memphis.
Charleston represented moro than twenty
thousand shares of the stock; soma being ruled
out for inf rrnality or not boiug hold for uinety
days previous to an election, your delegate
voted eighteen thousand shares.
On the invitation of the President, and
as bis guest, I visited Memphis, and had
the pleasure of moo ing Colonel Tate, wbo
inforuiod mo that Major Wicks had been
Chairman of tho Executive Committee cf
tho Boord for a long time, was perfectly
conversant with all the details of thc
business of the road, and be had icrfoct con?
fide ce in the success of his administration.
He also statod that bo hca turned over one of
tho best appointed roads of the South, with?
out a dollar of iloating debt beyond the means
in hand to pay.
The Mississippi Central Road, of which
Tate is Piosideut, bas aureed to pro rate with
tho Memphis and Charleston Road on thc same
ternis as with her Northern councctions. Tins
road extends from Canton, Mississippi, to
Jackson, Tennessee, two hundred aud thirty
seven miles. Tho depi>* property at Memphis,
which cost sixty-five tuous iud dollars, has been
valued at ono million do.lars siuco the war, but
real estate has doclined considerably sin JO
The President ss Limatos thc cost of thc road
at nine million three hundred thousand dollars;
outside assets will clear oil" three huudrod
thousand dollars; it would catt in present
currejey trora thirteen to fifteen million dol?
lars to placo thu road in its present condition.
It is the intention of tho Hoard to rebuild
the bridge across thc Tennessee Uiver at t?or
ODCO at an ex;>ou-<o of from eigh'.y to ninety
thousaud do lars; tho piers aro all in good
order, and a branch ro.id completed tram i'us
ctunbia to tho IVnnessee River six miles.
There is also nearly a mile of road CJinplctcd
on the north side of th3 Tennessee River, de?
nota built, and tho building of tus Florene J
bridge will open busbies to tho road from
Lauderdale County, Alabarm, and also the
counties o? Wayuo, Hamden and Giles in f cn
neesee. Tbia cxpeudituro w.U bo niado with?
out borrowing or interfering with thc regular
dividends of tbe company.
The company build their own cara, repair
their own engines, and have recently erected
a rolling mill at the small expense of seven
thousand dollars at Burnsvillc, which welds
and repairs all defective rails. Arrangements
will shortly be made by the Board to invite
emigration to the valley of thc Tennessee, in
length about one hundred and fifty miles by
fifteen broad, and extending on both sides of
the Memphis and Charleston Railroad. These
lands laid out in large plantations can be
bourht for a mere pittance.
All the roads leading to Charleston will pro
rate, and it is thc detorminalion of the mana?
gers to throw tiio cotton this winter into
Charleston. Tho East Tennesaee and Virginia
Railroad running east from Chattanooga has
not the capacity to do but a small portion
ol' the business.
It is important that Charleston should have
a daily line ot steamers to New York. The
moment it is known at the West that there is a
certainty of putting cotton through Charles?
ton, wo shall have an immenBO business from
all the roads: bot the business must be done
cheaply, to meet competition. It is understood
tnat parties are now in New York seeking tao
Loaded cars leave any depot in tho West and
como to Charleston without breaking bulk; but
in Charleston we are dependant upon drays.
It is consi ered, by Western railroid men, a
matter or vital importance that the cars should
deliver and receive their freight ai the wharves.
It is not only a matter of money, but will efren
save from twenty-four to forty-eight hours in
the transmission O? goods, which, in tho pres?
ent stite of competition, is an important item,
lt is hoped that the South Carolina Railroad
may extend her toad to the wharves, or per?
mission be given by the City Council to Mr.
White to lay down a road under his charter.
Tho personal interest of a few citizens must
give way to the public necessity.
