THE NEW REGIME AND., How rr AFFECTS
THE CoLOLED PEOPLE. -The election of Pills?
bury seems to have turned the hoads of tho
colored people, and they imagioe that, with
their idol on tho tl rone, their wildest dreams
will bc realized. A nombar of colored women,
.evidently from the country, were seen yester?
day, while passing through the back streets, to
atop and view the houses and select some for
their futuro residences. A lady was rudely
poshed while endeavoring to pass between two
negro girls, who took op tho whole sidewalk,
/ and, on remonstrating with them politely, was
abused and told to tako the outside, as that
was her place now that the election was over.
.In no city of the Sooth have the colored peo?
ple been moro kindly treated or had greater
liber ty of speech and action accorded them than
in Charleston. This has boen returned with
-contempt, and they have recently not hesita?
ted to sbow the "white trash" how they were
esteemed. There is an old adage that "whom
the Gods wish to destroy they first make mad,''
and the colored people should pause and re?
flect on tho consequences of any antagonism
between the races. The whites have been pa?
tient and forbearing, bot they will not bn

T3E ACTION OF CrT? COUNCIL.
An extra meeting of Council was held laat
night for tho purpose of considering thc pro?
test of the citizens against tho legality of the
recent Municipal election, ihe object of tho
meeting had been noised abroad tb-iough the
city, and about seven o'clock in thc evening,
the hour for Council to assemble, a large num?
ber ? >t persons, principally negroes, had col?
lected in tho neighborhood of thc City Hall,
apparently irita tho intenci?n of attending tho
meotiug. A guard had, however, been put
upon the City Hall steps, aud no one was al?
lowed to enter the building except members of
Council, members of th-j Board of Managers,
the counsel in the case, and tho representa?
tives of the press. The Council Chamber be?
ing only capable of accommodating a small
number of persous with any degree ol comfort,
the precautions taken were necessary to pie
There were.present at tho meeting, as mem?
bers of Coupcil, Mayor Clark, Aldermen Ued?

Marshall and Moore.
Messrs. J. H. Campbell, Isaac W. Hayne. C.
Richardson Miles, A. G. Magrath, Edward Mc

tested the election.
Hon. W. D. Porter, City Attorney; Major JJ.
T. Corbin, United Statis District Attorney; At?
torney-General Chamberlain; A. J. Hausier,
Chairman of tho Republican Stito Executive
Committee, and some others, were also pres?
After the transaction of some routine busi?
ness, tho Mayor called to the attention of
Council tho protest of tho citizens which had
been handed to him, and in so doing said that
it boro oh its face the signatures of betweon
fourteen hundred and sixteen hundred citi?
zens, whose nane3 represented thc substantial
j weight and character of the community; that
it wa3 worthy of the moat serioiu consider?
ation, and that to decido what wa3 their dui y
in the matter demanded calm cousideiation,
cool determination and firm decision.
Alderman Wall (colored) requested that the
law bearing on thc subject should bo read.
The Major read the fifth sec Li or of thu Act
of the Legislature of 1868, regulating Munici?
pal elections, as follows :
V. The Managers of Election shall meot at 10
o'clock A. M. on tho day succeeding such elec?
tion, at some public place within the corporate
limits of the city or town in which such elec?
tion is held, and proceed to count the votes,
under oath, stating the whole number of votes
cast for each candidate or person voted tor, and
shall transmit their report of the same in a
toaled envelope to tho acting Mayor or Inten?
dant of the city or town wherein they have
been appointed; "and it there be no acting M ivor
or Intendant in any such city or town, or in the
absence of such M J, vor or Intendant, thc name
shall bo transmitted to tho Clerk of Court tor
tho county ia which said city or towu may bc.
The said Mayor or Intendant, or Clerk of Court,
shall open the report of said Managers, and
shall announce and publish tho whole number
of votes cast and the whole number cast for
each candidato, when the several candidates
receiving the largest number nf legal votes for
tho offices for which they ware voted for shall
be declared duly elected. The Managers of
Election shall decide contested case J, subject
to the ultimate decision of the Bo?rds of Alder?
men or Wardens, when organised, except ?Then
the election of a majority of thc persous voted
for are contested, or the Managors charged
with illegal conduct, in which case the returns,
together with the ballots, shall be examined,
and the case investigated by the acting Board
of Aldermen, who shall decido thc election, and
their decision shall be biudiug upon all parties.
Alderman Wbilden offered tho following
resolution, which was seconded by Alderman
Besoloed, That the place appointed by thiB
Council to he.11 tho evidence in the matter of
the protest o', the recent election bo thc City
Court Boom, and the hour twelve o'clook
Saturday, November 14, and to bo continued
from day to day until completed. Sundays ex?
Alderman Geddings said that it seemed to
him that Council was proceeding rather rapid?
ly, and yet he was not prepared to discuss the
subject because he was just out of a sick bed.
Thia was a matter of vital interest to every
man in tho community. It touched tho wel?
fare of every man; it went to tho foundation of
our political and civil liberties; it reached for?
ward to the future, affe".ing the fate of untold
generations. It was, theieforo, of tho greatest
consequence that every step should bo tiken
after proper examination aud wiae considera?
tion. In reading the protest a question had
occurred to him, viz : whother tho managors
had decided the election? .
Mayor Clatk explained that in his opinion
the Legislature in passing the act had under
consideration places whero there was only one
Board of Managers, and that here, where there
were a number of boards, oach board had to
report tc the Mayor, and this had be, n done;
but before he had an opportunity ta open the
reports and doclare the election, thc protest
was handed in contesting tho election of a ma?
jority of the ufScere voted for, and that a case
was thus made for tho action of Council.
Alderman Whildon called tho attention of
Council to the fact that one of tho charges in
the protest was against tho managors for ille?
Alderman Wad (colored) took (ho ground
that Council had no right to discuss this mat?
ter until it had boen first pissed upon by the
managers, and then by the new Board or Al?
armen, because tho Council was tho court of
Mayor Clark explained to Aldorman Wall
(colored) his misapprehension of the law.
Alderman Wbilden withdrew his resolution.
Alderman Geddings asked if tho publication
ot tho result of tho oloction in tho papers of
Wednosday morning was official, or if there
had boen any official declaration of thc result
of thc olcction,
Mayor Clark replied in tho negative.
Alderman Geddings thea said that he could
not sec what tho proLe.it was against.
Mayor Clark explained that the protest was
against the validity of thc election-not agaiust
thc declar ition of the result in favor of any
man or set of men.
Alderman Wall said that this was z. protest,
and that thc only authority fcivsn lo Council
was in caso of contested elections. Nobody
had appeared to contest thc election, aud
therefore there was no case which Council
could properly consider.
Aldenum Geddings offered tho following
preamble and resolution, which he said he
scribbled off in a hurry under tho exigencies
of the occasion :
Whereas, The General Assembly of this
Stato by an act constituted tho Mayors and
Councils of tho several municipalities ropec
tivcly in this Stato umpires to examine and
declare the results of popular elections, and
in certain exigencies therein set forth, and such
exigoncy having arisen in the recent Municipal
election of this city, in v.?ich it is contended
that illegal coursos have been practiced, which
have contributed toan el roneo aa result, and
that a protest against snid action being uttcrcc
and declared final, being numerously and re?
spectably signed, hat? been presented to tho
Mayor for his action and that of Council ; it ia
Iiesotwl, That it is tho duty of his Honor
the Mayor and Council to appoiut an early day
to verify the ballotinsa in ino various wards
a3 kgally required, to take under oath evi?
dences of fraud and other illegal acts Haid to
have boen practiced iu tho recant Municipal
elections, and in all no dful ways to courorm
to tho Act of Assembly as an indfspensablo pre?
liminary to an onie al enunciation of the re?
sult of said election.
Alderman Whiklen moved that in place of
"an early day" his resolution previously offer?
ed, but withdrawn, bc nwerted as an amend-1
Alderman Geddings accp'ed the amend?
ment, t .? , . ,
Alderman Wbilden moved to- further amend
by srr.kiur, out tho kial paragraph of tho reso?
lution, but Alderman Geddings objected. Al?
derman Wbilden withdrew the motion.
Alderman Moore concurred in the distinction
previously taken between protest and contest,
but thought that Council had jurisdiction in
the matter. He was doubtful, however, as to
the effect of the provision of the act requu'ing
the officers elect to bo inducted into office on
tho Monday after thc election.
Mayor Clark explained that there could bc no
officers eleel until after the clcclkn had been
declared, and that it was for tho purpose of
determining how a declaration wa3 to be ar?
rived ac thaf Conucil was now in session.
Alderman Geddings insisted u;ion his opln
ion that there could be no proper sui jeci of ?
protest until tho election had been declared.
Max or Clark read from tho protest, to show
that it was against thc illegal conduct ol' an
election, about tho occurrence of which lhere
was no dispute.
Alderman Whildci said that the protest was
not against any man or set of men, but against
tho validity of thc election.
Alderman McKinlay (colored) thought thc
election must b? declared before a protest
could bc made.
Alderman Vail coincided in the same view,
Further desultory discussion took place,
after which the question was put. But, befuto
putting thc question, Mavor Clark declared his
opinion to bc that tho only part of thc act nec?s
eary for Council to consider was the followinj
The Managers of Elections shall decide con
losto . cases, su-jcat to the uliiniV.e decuio.i
of tho Boards of Aldermen or Wardens, when
organized, except ?hen tue eleel iou of a ma?
jority of the person? v. Lcd for aro contestad,
or the managers charged with illegal conduct,
in which case tho returns, together with the
ballots, shall be cxamiucd and the case inves?
tigated by the acting Bo trd of Aldermen, who
shall declare tho election, and their decision
shall to bindiug upon ail partios.
Tho question being put, thc resolution of
Alderman Geddings as amended by Alderman
-Whiideu was passed, only Aldermen Wall and
McKinlay voling in tho nccativc. Tho resolu?
tion as passed reads as follows :
Whereas, Tho General Assembly of this
State, by an act, constituted the Mayors attd
Councils of the several municipalities respec?
tively iu this State umpires to examino and de?
claro tho results of popular elections in certain
exigences therein set forth, and such exigency
having arisen it: the roc'-nt Municipal election
of this city, in which it is contended that illegal
courses have been practiced, which have con?
tributed to an erroneous result, and that a pro?
test against such an election being uttered and
declar ed final, being numerously aud respect?
ably signed, has been presented to the Mayor
for his action and that of the Com.eil; it is
Resolved, That it is the duty of his Honor
the Mayor and Couijfd to appoint au carly day
to vorify the ballo?js in thc various wards,
as legally required, to talco under oath evi?
dences of fraud and other illegal acts said to
havo been practiced in tho recent Municipal
elections, and in all ncodful ways to conform
to tho Act of Assembly, as an indispensable
preliminary to au official enunciation of tho
result of said election. And that tho place ap?
pointed by this Council to hear tho evidence
in tho matter of tho protest of tho recent elec?
tion be the City Court room, and tho hour 12
M., Saturday, ?'ovember 14, and be continued
from day today until completed, Sundays ex?
On motion of Alderman Olney, tho Mayor
was authorized to appointa committee of three
to draft rules for tho government of Council
during the examination, tho rules lo bc re?
ported to Council and subject to their action.
The Mayor appointed tho following Commit?
tee : Aldermen Olney, Howard aud Geddings.
Council then adjourned.
RILEY IS HIMSELF AGAIN_Since tho attack
of the colored Radicals on Stophney Riley he
hasbecomo quito a popular member of the
community, and has gained a host of white
friends, who aro determined that ho shall
not suffer for his adherence to tho princi?
pios of right and juslico. On last Thursday
6omo gontldmei; waitod on Mayor Clark and
requested him to protect Riley, as his life had
been threatened by the negroes. They also
assured the Mayor that if tho civil authorities
did not afford him the requisito protection the
citizens would seo that ho was not injured, but
would hold the Mayor accountable for auy riot
th it might follow. Mayor Clurk promised to
do all in his Dowor to preserve peace, and, in
order to show to the rioters that Riley was un?
der the aegis of tho law, he omployed his car
nago to drivo him through tho city. Tho
turnout attracted considerable attention yes?
terday, aud Riley was the observed of all ob?
servers, and recoived tho congratulations of
numerous friends, who assured him that he
would not bo forgotton.
