In the report of proceedings of tho conven?
tion of colored mon of Florida, held here on
the second of November, in accordance with a
a recommendation of the colored corvention
held in Boston cn October seoond, as published
to-day in the official papers of this judicial dis?
trict, there seems to have boon perfect accord
between all the delegates hero sent and no signs
of a split visible. At this convention, individuals,
both white and colored, made addresses, who
are now in opposition to each other. In tho
same issue appears a proclamation, with no
headquarters named, signed Robert Cox,
chairman; A. C. Lightbonm, secretary, both
of whom are colored, in opposition to Saun?
der's nomination, which says that, finding
Saunder's course will min the State, and moro
especially the Republican party, and bind us
hand and foot so that the Democracy may tri?
umph; and having seen the condition of th?
colored men of Georgia, who have boen pros?
trated from the condition of manhood, which
the constitution gives them, by having tho De?
mocracy as miers, say they know that the
split in the Republican ranks, particularly ia
the colored element of the population of that
State, brought her to her present condi?
tion; that the constitution of this State
opens the door to every former rebel, however
vicious, allowing him to vote; that they cannot
afford to have a split iu their midst without
swamping, and appeal to every colored man
in this State to stand firm in support of C. M.
Hamilton, the regalar nominee, who is a good
Bepublican, and asks Saunders to stay still
awhile when he shall be taken care of. It noti?
fies him that if he enters the fiold that Justice,
noted as the great tiger hunter, will shoot him
pohtically dead. This manifesto purports to
come from the voters of tho County ot Leon,
met for the purpose of considering- the course
taken by C lionel W. W. Saunders as an inde?
pendent candidato for Congress.

that Judge Sheffey, who held tho court, was

The decision in this case will affect nearly all
the judges in the State, and make void or con?
firm all legal business transacted by them

Alderman Wnildcn then moved tbat the ex?
amination of tbe managers be continued, and
in accordance with that motion it was adopted.
Josopb Quash wa3 sworn. Examine d by tho
Mayor: Was a manager in the recent Munici?
pal election for Ward 1; served through tho
registration, the day ot tho election and thc
day subsequent; no" person administered the
oath who was not a manager; there were other
persons than the managers who assisted in
counting tho votes; we had a clerk; it was
understood by the board of which I wa3 one,
that Mr. T. Waring Mikell would be the clerk at
thc city election; we had a clerk for the gene?
ral election; he was not a quick miter, and
we thought better to get an expert with tbe
pen; ho was simply hired by the board, and
to my kuowledgc was not sworn; as clerk of
tho board ho claim d pay; I was sworn
before Mr. Bennett and my oath filed in
the Clerk of Court's bfihe with Mr.
W?lituan; do not remember thc day when
Hworn, but it was two or three days subsequent
to my appointment, which I received through
the postoffioc, previous to the general election.
Thc managers of our board had no formal
meeting tor organization; as soon as 1 receiv?
ed my appointment through mail, 1 first saw
the announcement ot my appointment through
the mail, aud at tho time regretted it; wc
immediately to Mr. Mikell and asked him if
intended to"serve; he said be diJ, and thous
evcrv man ought to servo his countiy; 11<
bim i regretted my appointment, from the f<
that I had served before and had not been pa
Mr. Mikell said ho would serve, and I thence
eluded to do so myself; nevoi met and organ
ed aB a board; there was a mutual understan
ms between Mr. Taft and myself that Mr. 5
kell should bo chairman; Mr. Taft received 1
appointment through mail, with some prii
ed instructions, and concluded, as his name o
pearod first, ho was chairman of t
board. Subsequently. I saw Mr. Mikel!, ai
he said tho first thing wo had to do on t
dav of the election is to elect a cbairma
I said, very well; Mr. Taft has received print
instructions, and has concluded that as 1
name appears first, he is chairman; Jlr. Mik
said be would voto for me as chairman, ai
my reply was I would vote for him; Mr. Ta
did not act as chairman; Mr. Mikell was alwa
recognized as chairman of the board.
In replv to Mr. barker, for protestants: Ihe fir
thing Mr. Mikel! said to me upon meeting ?
ter our appointment, was to organize and ele
a chairman; our fifot mooting was at tho Ci
Hall, to prepare lor thc gcuerti election; the
was no farther proposition as to who should I
chairman, except a mutual understanding b
tween Mr. Taft and myself; no formal appoin
ment of manager was thcu made; we regarde
Mr. Mikell as chairman.
In reply to Mr. Bowon, for claimants: The
wero other persons, not managers, who assis
ed in counting thc votos; they wero Mr. He
nandez for tho Pillsbury party, Mr. J. Adg
Smythe, Mr. West and other gentlemen for ld
Lesesne's partv; Mr. Mikoll and Mr. Tait ke;
tal v; Mr. Mikell and myself were tho only pc
sons who handled the ballots; tho gentlemen
havo mentioned simply kept tally; the fir
time we met as a board was the d iy of reg?
tration for thc general election; the first thu:
dono was to proceed, as soon aa arrungemew
could be made, to receive thc names of po
sons who come up to register; I then rccoi
nixed Mr. Mikoll as chairman, from tho fai
that Mr. Mikell would not vote for Mr. Tuf
and Mr. Taft would not vote for Mr. Mikell, an
I waved my claims in favor of Mr. M
kell; Mr. Mikell accepted, acted aa sucl
and all our papen that wont forth with tl
signatures attached will show that fuct;
w3l vouch for the accuracy of the roturr
handed to the Mayor; I remember distinct!
on the day after tho election the Mayor comm
in and suggesting to Mr. Mikell, whom I HUI
posed ho recognized as chairman of tho boan
tho propriety of counting thc votes for Maye
first so as to get rid of the crowd on tho stree
I had suggested that course in tho morning o
bringing the box from the Guardhouse; we con
menced that morning counting tho vot ssingl;
naming the candidates ono by one as the name
appeared ou tho ticket; on the request of tl:
Mayor wo changed, to commence counting tc
Mayor alone; at that time we had one ba?are
aud sixty-four votes counted through; the ger
tleraon I have named as keeping tally were M:
Hernandez, on Mr. Pillsbury's side, and Mr. i
A. Smythe, Mr. West, and Mr. Samso
on the other side; Mr. T. Waring Mike
our clerk, and Mr. Tafe kept tally for tho mar
agers; as soon as we changed tho manner c
counting, 1 took tho ballots already fully counl
ed, rolled them up iu brown paper and pu
them in my sack coat pocket, and Ibero the
rem tined Uutil the closo of the counting; w
j got another box (witness recognized the bo
before him as the oue in which they receivo
their ballots); tho Bccond bcx had no numbe
marked on it; ne wont on counting tho vbte
for Mayor, and after gotting through with tba
continuod to count tho votes for Aldermen;
think we finished about nine o'clock at nigh!
when 1 took tho ballots, put them all in th
ballot box, which I took to the Mayor's office
Mr. Mikell preceded mc with thc return o
every person voted tor; feel satisfied that if tb
box "has not been tampered with, that al
the ballots cast that day aro in it; I let
thc key in tho box and said to tho Mayor
here is our box; M?\ Mikoll bando
tho return in an envelope sealed witl
mucilage to thc Mayor; there was no seal on it
tho Slayor having recognized Mr. Mikell a:
chairman of the board, I concluded it wa:
all right. [Return shown witness, wh<
recognized it as beinir the original pope
and return.] Tho parties I spoke of, outsidi
the managers, as keeping tally, had nothinc
whatever to do with thc vote?; they ncvei
handled the votes; we allowed challengers fron
both sides; thero were throe from Mr. Le
sesne's party and throe from Mr. Pillsbury'!
party; these grentlemen kept tally, and out
mistake made was corrected through them
upon the first count Mr. 'J att and Mr. Mikel
made Mr. Lososne's majority seventy-<ix, Mr
Smythe and Mr. West made it soventy-oue:
upon a recapitulation Mr. Taft and Mr. Mikel
discovered where they had made a mistake o.
five votes, which mtdo Mr. Lcsasno's majority

Thc motion of Alde rman Whilden was agroed
Charles N. Winner sworn: Was a manager of
Ward No. 2; was elected chairman of the board
at tho first meeting, on tho first day of regis?
tration; no one but the managers administered
tho oaths and assisted iu counting thc votes;
the board elected a clerk on th J 21th of Octo?
ber before the registration commenced; ho
was not elected at the same time as tho chair?
man; a clerk had been previously elected,
who deelinod, and we then elected another;
the derk was sworn and his oath filed; I
was sworn before Major Corbin; clo not know
whom tho others wore sworn bol'oro.
In reply to Mr. Barker, for protestants : After
the votes wero counted, the ballots woro put
into the box and handed to the Mayor by Captain
Read, one of th j other managers; tho Mayor
was in his office at tho time, sitting- at his
table; (witness hero identified thc box;) I placed
tbe key of tho box in the Mayor's hands; the
return I handed to the Mayor in a sealed en?
velope; after we sot through counting the bal?
lots wo placed them in tho box, which was
locked up by myself m presence of the other
two managers, and taken possession of by my?
self; I then handed it to Mr. Read; I earned
the Dooks and Le the box; we both weut over
to tho Mayor's ofiwo together; to the b03t of
my belief, all the votes cast on tho lOih of No?
vember, in Ward 2, for Mayor and Aldermen
are in that box.
In reply to Mr. Barker: Mr. Read was ap?
pointed by Major Corbin in the place of How?
ard, who declined to serve; I had no agency
in the appointment of Mr. Read.

C. C. Tram bo, sworn. In ?cplv to (he Mayor:
Was one ot thc managers of Ward No. 2 during
thc recent Municipal election; Mr. R.ad gene?
rally administered the oaths at that ward;
sometimes I did it, and sometimes Mr.
Wiuner ; Mr. Winner was chairman ; no
person assisted iu counting the votes ex?
cept tho managers ; my son was elected
clerk; as Mr. Winner's name was first in thc
advertisement ot the commissioner, he sup?
posed he was chairman, audi told bini I w is
perfectly satisfied; I knew it was no use for mc
to nominate a cnairman, because t::ero was
two against one; it was settled on the streets
who was to be chairman, andi was satisfied with
the decision; it was also settled at thc same
time who should be clerk; wc all acquiesced in
the arrangement; there was no rcgulir 01
ization; there were only three of us, and
being ina majority, I acquiesced in all
suggestions; we went through no such pr<
required by the law; I am not certain i
whether the dork was s worn; I do not t
he was. only when he went to vote, and w<
our ballots ia tho box; I did not swear bi
anybody; I have never taken any oath
when I want to vote; as I intended every
when ho came to vote should be swo
thought it necessary to bo sworn myself.
In reply to AJdorman Whilden: Mr. Read
was not preset at our first meeting; there
nobody but Ur. Winner and myself; I saw
announcement of tho appointment of mana
in the papers, and believed that it made
Winnor chairman; I mot Mr. Winner on
strcot by tho Milis House; he caught hoi
my hand an I said he was glad 1 was appoii
on the board; wo then had a little convc
lion; thc next time I met', him ho said tho
ored min 0:1 tho board had declined to sc

Read over qualified as a membor; I tliinl
claimed to acta* mauager the morning wc oj
od tho books for registration for tho gem
election; he acted on from that time; I v
with Mr. Winner to Mr. Corbin's office to qua
1 sigDcd some paper, and Ur. Corbin asked
if it was my signature; I replied, in thc affir
tive; ho then told mo that it was necessar
tak.' that to the office nf the Cierfc of the Co'
I considered it as being awsro, although I
not sworn; Mr. Bead was not thcie lo
knowledge; never saw Howard theft until
carno up to vote; in the registration for
Municipal olccttaqjthe three managers actci
registers; our clerk did the wr.ling and
managers asked tin questions; we asked m
questions, particularly where Hie parties liv
tue other managers decided hat if the pa
took an oath it was suftVioni; I allowed m
to register and vote without swearing til
bocauso I did not wait them to p
juro themselves; there was a difiere
of opinion between the othvr managers i
myself ia roferonco to allowing partios
register. The other two gentlemen thom
if the party comin? to register took tho 0
it was sufficient; I did not think so; I wo
rather let them vote or rogister than to tak
(ilse oalh and perjure themselves; I was sa
fied that numbers of them would perjure thc
selves by swearing falsely, particularly yoi
fellows whom I know to oe underage; on?, v
I doubted, said he was twenty-one a month
fore that; bo said ho voted last spring for
constitution, and aftor that for Mr. Mackey
sheriff, and I thought I would le? him rogiat
that was but one instance of a number
class of cases; I believe they woi
porjure themselves if forced to swear, a
I did not want them to do it; so
let them resistor without; there wero seve
who came up this way; I protostod ia seve
cases, but they ovcrrulod mo and said if t
party would swear, his nama or vote should
received; it did not occur in so many cases
voting as in registration; it occurred seve
times ia registration; did not think it necesi
ry to havo any difference with tho other mai
gora, but ti tod on tho contrary to avoid it; th?
wore one or two challenges by tho citizc
while registration was going on; there was 0
case in which I quit tho bar to go and fi
where tho party lived; betook mo to tho corr
of Kine aod Tradd streots, and said he hvet
little below there; he thon took mc to thc c
gmo houses, but uo one seemed to know him
wout with him to Price's alley, and when I g
thero, he said ho lived on the Battery; I w
tirod and quit him; he was not allowed to rog
tor, as I objected.

?now whero tho corner of King aud Trad
streofs was; ho went off iu company wit

from; on Thursday afternoon, after tho cit
election, Captain Mulvaney, w.10 had a sma

"Daddy, you voted iu Ward No. 2;" "yes," hi
said, "and 1 voted in Ward No. 1;"another min
airer showed mc a paper that tho samo man liai
voted in Ward No. 3; he was a very respectable
looking old fellow, too; I could not saj
thero were any porsons rejected by tho mame
gtrs who were legally cutitlcd to voto; there
was a colored mau who used to belong to Jlr
O'Donnell was going lo vote the Besesne ticket
but a crowd composed principally of deputies
got arouud h m, throw up their clubs, and that
was tho greatest row I saw duiiug the elec?
tion; could not say that any voter was prevent?
ed from voting by actual force or by threats ol
violouce; counted every voto tor Mayor on both
sides myself; the return and ballot box, with
tho ballots, at the close, wero taken to the
Mayor's office; I wont with the othor two mana?
gers into tho Mayors room; tho box, on the
night of the election, was placed in the Guard?
house; taken from there next morning to the
placo whore the votes were taken and counteel,
with all thc managers present; tho votes were
first couuted by Head, then by Mr. Winner,
then by myself; after tho counting the ballots
wero tied iip and put into the box again, and
tho boxbiuugbt over to the Mayor's; I have
no doubt all ttio ballots were put back, except
lour double ballots, which were torn up; thc
poll list and legistcr book were brought over
with the box and lett: remember that the votes
in the Dos correspjiided to the list.
lu reply to Mr. Corbin: Can give thc name of
ono who "vote I illegally; it was Harry Jack
sou, a black mau; he voted l'or Mr. Pillsbury;
know the kind of t:cket he voted; could tell
how every chored man aud white mau voted
in my rfard; there was a differenco between
tho Pillsbury and Lesesnc tickets; did not seo
the iuside of Jackson's ticket, but the print
was suffieienl; the tickets were not printed
upou the same kind of paper; there was one
ticket cam.; to our box that was printed like
tho Pillsbury ticket; believe ?twas the only
one; will not take bael: what I said; did uot
see ike inside of Jackson's ticket, but saw the
print oatside; could not read tho names
through tue paper; could soc thc priut, not
tho name, but t?e priut of a carpet-bag; that
was ou it.
Question-Do you undertake to say there
was a carpet-bag on it?
Answer-I do eay thsre was a carpet bag 0:1
it, on the ticket in the .Municipal election; waa
not sworn as a manager; (oath shown and
read to witness); witness acknowledged signa?
ture to thc oath, but domed having been sworn
before Ur. Corbin; bo was only asked to sign
his name to the paper given to him; sigued his
name to the paper tri .'en lum by Mr. Coi bin
as a qualified manager; he looked upon it as

In reply to Mr. Barker : The paper was sign?
ed by nie, but never s .vorn to; I acituowledged
it as an oath, but never ncaru ic reau oeiore.
In reply to tho Mayor : Did not hear any
manager state to persons applying to resister
tbat it was not necessary to give their resi?
dence, but wc did not insist upon it; I wanted
to ask, in many cases, whether certain parties
lived in Mr. Pringle's yard, for instance, or
other places, but thc others did not seem to
Mr. W. E. Mikell sworn; The clerk of his
board was never sworn, to his knowledge; was
satisfied that he was uot sworn; thc clerk did
not administer any oaths; did not hear any
manager say it was not necessity for parties
registering to give their residences; wo exact?
ed thc residences and numbers as closely as
we could. [Witness here repeated, in sub?
stance, tho testimony given by him relative to
tho election of chairman of the board, and
explained how bis namo appeared on tho
certificates ot* transfer as chairman.] Had not
thc slightest doubt that if Quash considered
him (witness) as chairman but what did so
sincerely; the certificates of transfer were made
up by th i clerk, with the words "chairman of
Ward No. 1" on the right, leaving it so that
whoever signed ono, appeared as chairman on
such certificate; they were signed indiscrimi?
nately; as far as he knew, these wore tho only
papers on which bis name appeared as chair?
Mr. T. Waring Mikell sworn: Acted as clerk
for Ward No. 1; was never sworn; did not ad?
minister oaths while scrvin,- as clerk; my duty
was to take down the names and to keep tally;
occasionally questioned persons who came to
register and to vote; in some instances where
I doubted persons who save cortain residences
asked in tho capacity of a citizen; put down
the na.no of every man ordered by thc mana?
gers; did not put down any name not au?
N. K. Read was next sworn, and answered
substantially as follows: I acted as ono of the
managers ot Ward No. 2, at the recent election;
Mr. Winner was chairman; I admiuistered tho
oath to applicants for registration on several
occasions; no person not a manager assisted
i in counting ibo votes, or over administered the
oath at our precinct; our clerk was electod re?
gularly; our board was organized some throo
or four days previous to tho general rogistra
tiou, when tho chairman and clerk wore elect
cd; wo first cloctod Mr. Barber as clerk, but
ho having declined, .Mr. A. 8. Trumbo waa
elected; Trumbo was sworn; I swore before
Major D. T. Corbin; I never hoard a manager
at our precinct say to an applicant for rogis
" tr at ion that it was not necessary to state his
place of residence.
Cross-examined by Mr. Barker: Tho board
met at 3tclling'd restaurant and elected a chair?
man there, a few days before the general elec?
tion; I proposed ^lr. Winner for chairman,
and Mr. Trumbo acquiesced.
Cross-examined by Mr. Corbin: I took tbe
oath the afternoon we organized; Mr. Trutnbo
and myself were sworn at that time; I know
the clerk's signature, [Papers shown him].
Witness recoguiz3s it as having beon written
by A. S. Trumbo. It it his oath; he wrote and
signed it himself; wo decided as a board upon
tho question of every voter who applied to re?
gister; never consented to a man's registering
and voting whom I did not think was entitled;
thcro wero only two or three cases of extreme
doubt, and only a few applicants who were re?
jected; I think' tho managers of our precinct
acted in perfect good faith; I considered we
wero acting uudor oath.
lu reply, by Mr. Barker: Major Corbin did
not read tho oath to mo, he merely asked me
for my signature; was sworn in before Mr. Cor?
bin previous to tno general election; where tho
right ot parlies to vote was doubted we gene?
rally accoprcd them on taking the oath; Mr.
Trumbo went out several times to seo whore
parties lived, and some of them were rejected;
never obj :cted to testimony being iutroducod
in cases ot dispute; were willing to swear any
party who carno to register; cannot recall any
case in which tho managers of our ward object?
ed to tho investigation of a case.
Dr. E. C. Hockley was duly sworn, and testi?
fied as follows: Was chairman of tho managers
of First Precinct of Ward No. 3; wo conferred
together without having a rotular meeting,
and I considered myself as chairman; wu ap?
pointed a clerk; I administered thc oatn at ibo
polls, as did also the other manager*; no per?
son not a manager did it; the cleric was sworn;
1 took tho oath before tho clerk of the court;
'io ono registered at our precinct who did not
give his residence.
Cross-examined by Mr. Barker: I took tho
oath before Mr. Richmond; wrote and sigaed it
myself; was not sworn on the Bible, nor did I
hold up my right hand; I kn:w of no minutes
that were kept of tho proceedings of the board,
and have no rte,rd of my appointment as
Cross-examined by Mr. Cjrbin: 1 considered
myself as under oath all the time; tho oath is
now on record in tho clark's offiee. [Shown
return.] I can identify it as the returu of oar
ward; I recognize my signature; it is a correct
return; after counting the ballots wo put them
in tho box, which wo sealed up; it is thoro,
sealed and covorcd with brown paper.
JohaA. Winthrop, hoing daly sworn, deposed
and said : Never lieard.any manager say to any
applicant tor registration that it was not neces?
sary to state his residence; Dr. Kecklov's son
was our clerk and was sworn; Dr. Keckloy
generally, as chairman, administered tho oath
io applicants; I admiuistered the oath seven I
timos; wc met as a board, and by mutual con?
sent considered Dr. Keckley as chairman and
his son as cleric.
Cross-examined by Mr. Barker: Think tho
clerk was sworn, but don't know it; he was not
sworn in my presence; I took the oath before
Major Corbin, who read it over to mo, and I
swore by holding up my right hand.
Cross-examined by Mr. Corbin : Tho election
was conducted fairly on thc part ot tho mana?
gers; there was great harmony and no wrang?
ling; no ono registered without the consent of
tho board; after tho voles were counted we
wore all agreed as lo tho return; tho votes
wore put in the box, which was scaled, and thc
key fastened to tho top and sealed. [Shown
return.J Identified it; testify to my signature
and those of my associates; identified his box.
Joseph P. Ho ward was next called and, upon
being duly sworn, said : I am a manager ol'
Ward "N'o.*3, Precinct 1; the board did not hold
a regular meeting, but was considered oigan
?zed by coiutnou consent; I and Dr. Keckley
consulted together-there were only two of us?
as to who should bc chairman and who clerk;
this was pu Meeting-street; Mr. Winthrop was
substituted on the board in tho pl ice of Mr.
Burke, and ouly made his appearance on the
first day of registration; I administered thc
oath on several occasions; tho clerk did not; I
swore before R. C, Dclargc; I morely agreed
that Dr. Keckley should bc chairman, and I
presumed Mr. Winthrop agreed to il also.
Cross-examined by Mr. Barker : Mr. Win?
throp was not present at our first consultation;
there wero no minutes of our proceedings as
a board kept, and I knew of no record of tho
appointment of chairman or clerk; I swore by

THE PROPOSED INCREASE OF SALARY TO THE
PRESIDENT-A NEW EXECUTIVE MANSION -
THE NEWS FROM PARAGDAY-INDIGNATION EX?
PRESSED AGAINST MINISTER WASHBUBNE.
A Washington letter of the 17th inst, says :
Besides thc question of salary for the Presi?
dent, which will bc presented to" Congress this
winter, will also bo that of erecting a new
Presidential Mansion, and the position which it
is rumored here Mis. Grant has taken will has?
ten the latter movement. It is stated upon
good authority that Mrs. Grant declares she
will not leave her present comf ortable home
for the uncomfortable and badly arranged
apartments al tho White House, although
she is willing to appear there and
do the honors of the establishment on all
Stato occasions. Tho erection of a new Execu?
tive mansion bas long been regarded, both in
and out ot Congress, as an actual necessity,
and so untenantable has the old budding be?
come that for a number of years pas ; the Pres?
ident bas protended to occupy it during the
summer and fall months. The present occu?
pant is thc first President who has remained
m tho White House the year round since tho
administration of Mr. Pierce. Tho str.nd taken
by Mrs. Grant will no doubt hasten the erec?
tion of a now building on a uoro eligible pite.
It is understood hero that tbe question of
salary will also be considered favorably during
the approaching session, and that the amount
will bo increased from twenty-five to ono hun?
dred thousand dollars. The present salary
was fixod when the population ot tho country
numbered but threo millions.
Tho extraordinary news from Paraguay has
excited the liveliest Bonsation in official and
diplomatic circles, and nothing else is being
discussed. The President is represented as
expressing groat indignation at the cowardly
corneo pursued by Minister Washburn, and it
is understood that he will send a special mes
8ago in immediately upon the assembling of
Congress. Official dispatches have been re?
ceived from Mr. Washburn, but nothing is
kuown of their contents outside of the State
Department. The impression prevails that he
has entirely failed to satisfy the government
that his conduct was such as was worthy tho
representative of tho United States, 'ibo pro?
babilities arc, that the country will soon be
taxed with the cost of another Paraguayan ex?
pedition, and that several light draught moni?
tors will soon be put in commission.
Charleston and Liverpool.
A abort time ago wo published an item from
Charleston, announcing tho arrival at that port
ot the first steamship of the direct lino be?
tween Charleston and Liverpool. The success
of this enterprise wo regard as of immense
value to thc entire State, and especially to the
City of Charleston. The continu ince" of this
semi-monthly line will depend upon thc amount
ot carrying trade between these points, and it
is the duty and interest of every section of the
State, as well as other Western sections be?
yond tho limits of this State, to increase and
promoto tins trade, that wo may thereby se?
cure to ourselves the porinancnt advantages cf
this direct trade and communication with
Europe. Thc upper and middle districts of
thia Stato can contribute something iii this
direction by throwing their trade i t? Obarles
tou, by buying and selling ther i. Let the
cotton* raised in the up-country bo sold in
Charleston, w nutt will certainly yield as large
a net profit os .m. Northern market. At thc
same time buy our goods in Charleston, which,
with its direct trade with Europo, will become
a cheaper market, especially for goods of for?
eign manufacture, lu fact, tho way to make
Charleston a cheap market is to give it our
I trade, thereby on-blinsr it to secure to itself
those advantages and faoiliti s of trade now
I enjoyed by Northern markets. Especially is
this our dnty, when tho same advautagos of
trade can bc afforded us at Charleston as at
other points farther from homo. Some of thc
largest and most successful merchants of our
town have hitherto bought most of their eoods
in Charleston, and sell goods as cheap.y as
others. Now if this ie possible under disad?
vantages. it will certainly be very easy for
Charleston to competo with other markets when
those disadvantages arc removed. Wc know
that interest directs the laws of trado, and it is
thia influence we wish to secure to Charleston
by an increase of facilities-tho end and the
means. There is au article in THE CHARLES?
TON NEWS, settiug forth the advantages accru?
ing to that city and our interior country from
this enterprise, the length of which precludes
its publication this wojk. Wc arc certain it is
thc interest of thc up-country to secure to
Charlestou every advantage as a market. Then

DEATH OF A GREAT COMP SER.-i he groat
Rossini died at Pans on Saturday, at thc age
of seventy-six. He was a man of prodigious
genius, a" man also of prodigious indolence.
Uou gave him tho greatest talent vouchsafed
to any lyric composer of this generation, and
for thirty-eiiiht yours he has had that talcut
aud denied thc world all fruits therefrom. He
was a gcurmaud and a voluptuary. His years
wore spent iu ministering to h?s own vanity
and his own bodily comfort, moally to that o.
his palate. When ho was young and poor ho
worked, never consecutively or faithfully, but
mostly on emergencies. Having aa opera to
compose, and six weeks in which to compose
it, he passed four of them in idleness, aud
then by the aid of his fertile genius did thc
work in thc remaining two. He aeked only
for nen, paper and a fit libretto, and, these be"
fore bira, nt ver hesitated for a moment as to
what he should write. Ho would compose in
bcd, and so incredible was his laziness, and so
great the fertility of his invention, that when a
fine duet that he was writing, and had almost
finished, slipped off thc bed and beyond his
reach, lather than get up for it, he took
another sheet and composed another duet en?
tirely different from the first. At tho age of
thirty-five, at the very crown ot his life, aud in
tho ripeness and fullness of his great powers,
he suddenly broko off work, threw down his
pen, and gavo himself up to idleness and ease.
Up to this time ho had composed thirty
eight operas and some minor works. Most of
them have fallen into oblivion; the names only
arc remembered. In "William Tell," his last
opera, he iairly showed that great things were
possiblo to him, and serious thiuss. Alas for
the luven of music, and for his own reputa
ration with posterity, that having once risen to
thiafaeigbti ho sbo-ld have thrown himself
down iu supine ?luth, and that the world
should have at last to couiess, that in his death
it mel DO loss.
