THE BROAD-STREET WHEELBARROW CHANGES
.irs BASE.-Che Broad-street News Depot has
. changed hand?, and Courtenay's down tewn
book store will soon be numbered with the
things of the post. After the death of the late
Mr. S. G. Courtenay ihe stock was not re?
plenished, and it was the design of the ad
ministrators to clo3e out tho business. This
has now been effected. Mr. Hiram Harris
V having purchased the establishment, will
J transfer his printing business to it. Tho lower
story will bo used as a salesroom and the
printing material be kept in the upper story.
The blue wheelbarrow, the well known sign of
Mr. Harris, has also wheeled into line, aud
will now bc stationed in future before thu door
of No. 9.
AFTER THE STORM.-Tho excitement of the
election left tho public pulse in a feverish con
ditton, tho victors being olatod with their
triumph, while the defeated paity were in
censed at tue frauds used to control the re?
sult. The streets were comparatively clear
during tba day except in the neighborhood of
the Courthouse, where a crowd of lazy negroes
hadcollected waiting fir something totara
up. The protest was the principle topic of
conversion, and Parson Cain, Marshal Ep
ping, B'.loy and others wno were looked upon as
traitors to tho cause, were reviled and abused
.by th J embryo colored politicians. These de
duded darkies are Jiving in the expectation of a
futuro state of bliss when they will become
pensioners ot tho city bounty, and now await
the realization of their dreams, lhere lives
oro spent in idlonoss, and they ore ripe for any
mischief-a ents?nne to society, and deserving
to be arrested as Yagronts.
BEAL ESTATE SALES.-Messrs. Leitch & Bruns
sold, yesterday, for J. W. Gray, Master in
Equity, a plantation in 8t. John's Berkeley,
known as Claremont, containing one hundred
nod twelve acres-seventy-four swamp and
>tiirty-cight acres of high laod-for $5225, one
quarter cash, the balance in one, two, three
and four years.
A lot at the southeast corner of Mcoting
street and Horlbeck's alley, mea?uring forty?
-six feet front, by one hundred and fourteen
deep, for $3000, one-half cash, balance in one
The plantation known as the Oaks, situated
on tho Waccamaw Eiver, containing fourhun
. dred acres; also, a tract of land known ss the
Turkey H-.il Soa?hore, and one known as tho
Boone Savannah tract, for $1600, one-quarter
cash, balance in ono, two and three years.
RADICAL MISRULE EXEMPLIFIED-RESISTANCE
TO LAW.-Ye3terday a darkey named Quash
Howling amused himself by the intellectual
amusement of beating his wife. His iib ob?
jected strenuously to his pastime, and took out
a peace warr.mt aga'nst her liege loid. This
was served by two white constables, who
arrested thc wife-beater. Quash no sooner
found himself within the clutches ol the law
than ho showed that his na no was no mis?
nomer by bellowing like the bull of Bashan.
His cries attracted the attention of tho colored
.Courthouse loungers, and they, wLh ono
accord, rushed to th3 spot with clubs uplift Dd
in defenco of their howling brother. Notwich
standing tho violence of tho crowd and thc
^frantic efforts of the prisoner to escape, tho
-constables bungon, although one of them was
cut in th> face. A rescue would have boon
-effected but for the timely arrival of Lioa'enant
Minott, of thc police force, who took tho howler
io thc Guardhouse.
Tile Election Protest
I THE POWER ASS DUTY OF THE CITY COUNCIL IN
It is somewhat remarkable that in tho ac', of
the Legislature, uuder which tho Municipal
election of Tuesday last was held, tbcro ia no
provision made for a new election under any
In calling attention to this fact it is not our
purpose to express an opiuion, much less to
impress an opinion on others; for an opiuion
on tais matter, to bo worth anything, should
be the result of elaborate examination by coun?
sel learned in the law. Wo merely wish to sug?
gest some itieas which have occurred to us on
reading th'^act, which may not have occurred
to others, and which it might bo unfortunate
to have suggested at too lato a stage of the
proceedings in protest.
The only words of the act diroctly rolating to
any dissalisfactiou which might bo felt in re?
gard to tho result of an election held under it
are the followiug :
The Managers of Election shall decido con?
tested oases, subject to the ultimate decision
of the Boards ot Aldermen or to aldous, when
organized, except wheo the elecliou of a
majority of thc persons voted for are contested,
or the Managers charged with illegal conduct,
in which case the returns, together with the
ballots, shall be examined and tbs caso in?
vestigated by the acting Board of Aldermen,
who shall declare the election, and their de?
cision shall be binding upon all parties.
Tho only other provision having any bearing
upon the d?cision of an election is that re?
quiring the officers elect to be inducted into
office on the Monday following tho eloction,
which would seem to require that the Board
of Managers or Board of Aldermen, as the
caso might be, should make their decision on
or before the said Monday.
Now, it ha9 ocourroi to us that there is no
provision made hero for a protest properly so
called, bnt only for the defeated candidates
contesting the seats of their successful com?
petitors. In other words, that this act pro?
vides no remedy for the public who may bo ag?
grieved by tho result of the election, but only
for candidates, who, having beon rightfully
electo 3, are deprived of their seats by fraud or
mistake. If this view is correct, tbcro is no
right of protest, under this or any other law,
for tho act expressly declares that tho decision
of the Board of Aldermen "shall bo binding
upon all parties." The power ot the Board of
Aldermen is thus limited to deciding a dispute
between two candidates as to which is elocted.
If A is not elected, B is, and there is an ond of
?ho matter. No need for a new election. Thc
duty of the Board of Aldermen under the act,
in this view of the matter, is plain. They
must examine tho election in all its details, and
give their decision in favor of thc candidate who,
in fboir opinion, has tho greatest number
of legal Totes. They mast, with dae regard to
their oath of offioe, declaro either Mr. Pillsbury
or Hon. H. D. Lesesne to ba Mayor of Charles?
ton. If the circumstances of the case aro such
that they cannot constitutionally declare
either party to be olected, for example, if a
number of tho ballots havo been destroyed, os
is said to be the case in the present instanco, it
will be their duty to declare that the election
has been without result; for it is not to be sup?
posed that the Legislature would require them
tu make a decision against the truth. But even
then they have no power to declaro a now elec?
tion. This is a defect in the law which can
only be remedied by a new act. At least, such
is a view of the case which wc think worthy of

Slr. Gilbert Pillsbury to thc Colored
We publish below a card from Mr. Gilbert
Pillsbury to the colored people of Charleston,
which we hope may have some effect in arrest?
ing them in their mad course of crime and
outrage, which ia fast hurrying them to des?
truction. Perhaps wc should be grateftd to
Mr. Pillsbury for this effort ia behalf of peace,
but wo cannot forget that thc same magic
voice that can repress violence could hive pre?
vented it :
To the Colored Citizens of Charleston :
For the purpose of promoting peace and
good order in tho city, I would respectfully re?
quest my colored friends to abstain tro u ali
abusive language a.id acts of violoncc ag.iinsi.
Mr. S. Kiley, or other colored men who voted
the Citizens' ticket in the recent election.
They may have gone counter to what you hon?
estly behove to be y.nir bist interests, but
they only exercised the uu.hgrraled right be?
longing to every Am .-ric LI sitizia.
I also regret to lcarj of tho ride a:id un?
friendly interference with thc privateresi.leuce
of E. W. Marshall, Esq. While every person
will conerde to you tho right to express your
gratification, iu all proper ways, at thc result
of tho recent Municipal comest, I trust, you
will, as good citizens, properly respect tho
rights of all others, while you are permitted
unmolested to enjoy your own.

CLUBS TO BE TEUHP3.- The now regime have
adopted thc rule that ever., citizau ha-- a right
to bear arm*, concealed weapons excepted.
This has beou cimcd out to the letter of tho
law hythe col'red people, i ney aro seldom
seen without a bludgeon ol ?>ouie description,
and these are frequently loadefl with lead, ren?
dering them formidable weapons. The demon?
stration ma le at the Courthouse Wednesday
proves that tho negroes usc their clubs wil?
lingly, and prefer those that can deal effective
blows. Thc: white citizens havr> always fore
born, but forbearance may cease to be a virtue,
and those that sow the wiud must expect to
reap the wnirlwiuJ.
THE NICEEUSON HOUSE.-This hotel, which
bas now au established reputation, being
favorably known to travellers from a".l sections
ot ibo Union who have bad oecasion to visit
tho capital of Soulb Carolimi, has rcooully
passed into thc hanls of Mr. W. A. Wright,
one of thc most experienced landlords in thc
Southern country. The fair fame ot the hotel
has oven increased under his managoment. and
the public will bo glad to learn that ho is uow
having it refitted and refurnished throughout,
and is effecting important improvements which
will contributo materially lo tho comfort and
luxury of guests during the approaching sea?
BALTDIOBE PIANO MANUFACTORY.- It must
always be a pleasure to Charlestonians to pat?
ronize Baltimore, when they can do so without
material disadvantage to themselves. lu almost
every liue of business they can do so with
great advantage to themselves, and especially
is this the case with pianos-several excellent
manufactories of which instruments are in suc?
cessful operation iu that cit;,. Among these
nono ranks higher than tho piano manufactory
of Mr. Charles M. Sticff, which has boen ex?
tensively patronized in all thc Southorn States,
and is highly recommended by many distin?
guished persons, among whom is General R.
E. Lee, who certifies to the good qualities of a

8T2PHNEY RILEY. -Stophney Riley is a co'or
ed man, who keeps a livery stable on his own
account, is steady iu bit habits, and sacco .slit)
in bis businc-e. Being a man of intelligence
and some education, it is no ihfiicult matter
for him to seo that tho security of the little
property which he has already acquired, a6
woll as the prospect of bis acquiring any in
the futuro, greatly depends 00 an hoticfat and
wiso administration of tho city government.
He thought this could bj most certainly ob?
tained by the election of tho Citizens' ticket,
and he accordingly votod for it. Ile had pre?
viously, influenced by sim'lar considerations,
voted for Seymour and Blair for President and
vice-President, and for Colonel R. W. Sey?
mour for Congress; and, in fact, is a
good citizen ?nd consistent Democrat.
This bas aroused against bim the ha?
tred of ibo Radical leaders, who look upou
tho negr )C3 as so many foold io be load by the
oose for their benefit. Accordingly, they issued
:hoir instructions to their minions, and on
jcveral occasions Riley has been assaulted, bis
ile threatened, and on Wodnesday Ja-1, bis
