Handsome Tribute to Chief Nathan
Speeche? by Chief Nathan and Augus?
tine T. Smythe, Esq., of the Phoenix.
For some time past measures have boen on
foot among the members of the Charleston Fire
Department to obtain for their Chief a testi?
monial of repare! worthy of the affectionate
esteem ia which they hold him. They, of
coarse, succeeded in this, as in everything else
which they undertake, and the silver service
ordered from Mr. J. E. Spear, King-street, was
a tribate of which both the Department and its
Chief might well feel proud. It consists of a
pitcbor, two goblets and a salver, all of solid
silver, handsomely chased and ornamented,
and engraved in the highest 6tyle of the art by
the skilful and experienced hand of Mr. Fisher,
an artist worthy of the occasion. The engrav?
ing on the various articles was as follows:
Palver-Handsome wreath around the inscrip?
tion, "Presented to our Chief, M. H. Nathan,
by tho Fire Department of Charleston;'' hand
engine, steamer and truck, and below this the
inscription, <;As a testimonial of our apprecia?
tion of his long and faiteful services-No v. 30,
Goblets-The inscription, "Presented to
Chief M. H. Nathan, by tho Fire D.-partment
of Charleston, Nov. 30, 1868.
Pitcher-Same as goblets.
The ceremony of presentation took place last
evening, at Market Hali, in presence of tho
Board of Firemasters, and representatives of
every company in the department.
Augustine T. Smythe, Esq., chairman of tho
committee of arrangements, called the meeting
to order, and Messrs. Sigwald, of tho Pioneer,
Webb, of Hook and Lidder No. 2, and Hickey,
of the Hope, were appointed a committee to
wait on Chiof Nathan and request his presenco
ia the hall.
The committee returned in a short tima ac?
companied by the veteran chief, w.io was
vociferously app! juded. As soon as he rosebed
the vacant space ii front of the board, Mr.
Smythe addressed him os follows :
Mr. Nathan : Tho Fire Department of
Charleston, over which you have so lons and
ably presided, bein? deeply impressed with tho
importance and effieieucy of the services you
have zealously and faithfully rendered them,
have desiredin some manner to testify their
recognition and appreciation of these services,
and I have been requested, as their represen?
tative, to convey to you this evening tho ex?
pression of their continuod regard and esteem.
Tbe Firo Department of (Jiiarleatou ie ono
.well known and justlv celebrated throughout
the length and breadth of this land for its
superiority In efficiency and discipline, as well
as in the maierial of which it is composed.
Many other cities possess departments ot which
they may justly bo proud, but ours stand un?
rivalled in the hold which it has upsn thc affec?
tions of one community, the position of com?
manding influence which it occupies in our
etty. And this reputation is not one of yester?
day, but one which has been oura for years and
year?, and to-night we can proudly claim for it
the same pre-eminence as of yore, as we stand
with increased numbers and undiminished ar?
dor, ready and wJling to meet and to conquer
our old fiery enemy.
The position of chiof of such a department is
at once a prond and yet difficult one. Much,
very much depends on his efficiency, and it is
by bis efforts and his care that the interests of
the department are in a groat measure pro?
moted. And we cannot but feel that much of
the -positkm which we now occupy, and of
whi?ji^re are proud, is dae to tho energy,
sE??and antiring interest manifested by your?
self, in all that concerns us. During triode
dark days when the gloomy mantle of war and
civil commotion was wrapped around us, and
oar community, nay, our catire couatry, was
rent and distracted by the fierce conflicts of
the hour, when society after society suspend?
ed or disbanded, and organization after
organization was broken up, by your
ceaseless activity and watchful care this
department, so invaluable to us all as
firemen and as citizen0, was piesei ved intact
though enfeebled and in debt, with many of
Its engine houses destroyed, its engines out
of repair aud injured by the long and hard
usage of the war, some even having boen
destroyed by its vicissitudes; still as an or?
ganized department it emerged from the gene?
ral desolation. And then it was in great mea
euro, through your labors and energetic ap?
peals, both at home and abroad, that the work
of active reorganization was commenced, new
companies have been formed, now and im?
proved machines have been procured, tho old
ones have been o vor ii a fled and put in proper
repair, new hose bas been supplied, new
houses built; and to-day the department stands
with largely increased numbers and improved
membership, os troll and as proudly as it over
did in the most promising days of tho past.
But we do not feel that our indebtedness to
you ends here. Since the actual struggle of
war has ceased, wa have bad many changes in
our city administration irom its entire subjec?
tion lo the military, to its presont organiza?
tion. Through all theso changes, whether
pleasant or unpleasant, we havo ever found
you at your post, ready and on the alert to
watch over and forward the interests cjinmit
ted to your charge, and it is in a large degree
by your earnest vnd persistent efforts that we
are now placed in a position of somewhat
pecuniary lnderx ndence.
After a consideration therefore of those ser?
vices, a proposition was started in the Depart?
ment to give excrosston to these feelings, and
to present to you some tribute of our appreci?
ation of your labors. The proposition so made,
having boen brought before our company, was
there unanimously carried, and their action
having been communicated to tb* other com?
panies of the Department, one after another
adopted it, until to-night we stand her: a com?
mittee composed of representatives from every
company in the Fire Depai tmcnt of Charleston,
to tender to you our unanimous thanks for thc
zeal and energy you have ever displayed in all
that concerns the Department, and our appre?
ciation of your interest in aud care over us.
Allov mc, then, dear sir, as the representa?
tive of this committee, itself a representative
body, to present you with tnis testimonial of
our regard and esteem, and to tender you, in
behalf of the Fire Department of Charleston,
our since e good wisheB for your future pros?
perity, and our prayers thit you may long bo
spared to rule over and direct us.
Mr. Nathan replie 1 :
Afr. Smythe and gentlemen of the Fire Depart?
ment : This beautiful gift, of which I am thc
recipient, and which, Ij am well convinced, is
owing rather to tho partiality of your friend?
ship, than to any merit of mine, shall ever and
always be os teem d by me and handed down to
my children's children, as an heirloom. I
cannot be vain enough to suppose for an in?
stant thal this offering springs from any pecu?
liar merit on my part, in the administration of
the important uuticB involving so much of life
and property, which I have been called upon to
assume lor the past ten years. That is a mere
freak of fortune or accident. Your friendship
and my fute are both combined to sustain me
in thc very responsible office of Chief of thc
Fire Department. While there are many among
you who could and doubtloss wojld perform its
arduous duties with farmers zeal and efficiency
than lies within the reach of my most bribie
efforts, in all evonts, however, br heve me,
nothing can be nearer or dearer tj my heart
and hope than the perfection of tl at system,
the efficiency of which will go far to assure
your slumbers and secure your property. To
you, sir, for the very handsome manner in
which you have been pleu*od to convey to mc
the kind leolmgs of my friends of the Fire
Department, I tender my grateful acknowl?
edgments. Again, gentlemen, I return you
my sincere thaaks for this testimonial of your
regard and friendship. [Applause.]

Row ON EAST BAT, NEAB ELLIOTT-STBEET
Repeated cries of murder were heard in tho
vicinity of Elliott-street, on East Bay, last
night, about half-paat ten o'clock, and on in?
vestigation were found to proceed from a
number of men, principally seamen, engaged
in a fight. One man belonging to the cutter
was severely bolton in the face, and another, a
second mate of a schooner in ;jort, slightly cul
in tho neck. They were promptly arrested
and carried to the guardhouse, a 6iuall crowd
following. Cause of thc trouble was womeu
and whiskey. Miss Scott, a resident of Elliott
street, tried to get up a sceuc at thc guard?
house in favor of her lover, but signally
failed. The whole affair will be sifted and
righted this morning, at the Mayor's Court.

for others land free of charge, provided they

ral desire is expressed by tho people of tho

tho only thing needed now to complote the

The Governor and the Bank of thc
OFFICE, No. 50 EBOAD-STBEET. I
Two o'clock Monday, November HO.1868. j
TO THE EDITOR OF THF NEWS.
My attention is called to tho following clause
in the Governor's message of this day:
I recommend to thc Legislature that some
early action be taken to prevent the courts aud
officers of thc Bank ot the State from wasting
and misapplying ita assets to thc payment ot
costs of court, attorneys' fees aud the salaries
ot officers and agents. If tho holders of the
Fire Loan bonds are determined to pursue tho
policy of disparaging the credit and resources
of thc State, when it must be apparent to them
that no State in the Union is more solvent, or
has a fairer prospect of promptly meeting all
her liabilities, they should be compelled to
carry on this litigation at their own expanse.
I have reason to believe that no less than sixty
thousand dollars in gold has boen squuuderod
and made away with for salaries ofotlicors and
agents who aro performing no necessary du?
ties, fees of attorneys who aro emploi ed for tho
purpose of bringing the credit of the State into
disrepute, and for other objects of equally
qucB'ionable propnoty. Thc holders of tho
Five Loan boi els should bo placed on the same
looting as other croditors of thc Stato, and
tbcysiionld be held accountable for all Haula?
ges thc State has sustained, or may sustain,
by their un warrantable litigation.
The Hon. Isaac W. llayuo and myself arc
thc counsel and attorneys for Messrs. Bar ng
Brothers & Company, and other holders of
Fire Loan b:iads, aud we are tho persons in?
tended aud rcferreJ to as "employed ?ur the
purpose of bringing the credit of the Slate itito
disrepute, and for other objects of oqnally
questionable propriety." Mr. Heyne is at this
moment in profound affliction, aud I cannot
confer with him; but his unsullied personal
and professional character answers I Lat bc will
not be less prompt than mysolf to join in ti
vindication of ourselves and our clients from
this shameless falsehood of the adventurer
who, by the rising cf thc scum, is at tho bead
ol'public affairs in this unfortunate Stats.
The vindication shall bo carly, full and con?
clusive. JAMES B. CAMPBELL.
Take More C'nrc of your Cotton.
TO 1SE EDIIOR CF THE NEW.*.
In strolling around your wharves and ware?
houses,! have been much surprised to see that
a good proportion of tho cotton is bound with
but four irou or rope baud.-, and that iu many
iustancc8 thc cotton is pat up v:ry insecurely,
the bagging only extending around a portim
of the bale, leaving a hugo f?urt oftbc si>lo ex?
posed to thc notion of the weather, and really j
inviting the many prowler.] lo avail themselves ? '
of any opportunity that m tv offer to pilfer. At
all times 1 Lave, thought it ad\ ?sable (o liavo
my cotton put up in good bagging, aud enough
ot it to cover thr. whole bale; also, to put en
six good stout bands of rope or iron. This 1
was accustomed tu do whoa 1 got but ten ceuts
per pound for my cotton, and I am satisfied I
derived a benefit then in having it delivered
to the factor in good order, and not subjecting
myself to aloes in weight, which is moro or
lees inoidental to all cotton that leaves the
planters' barn or gin-hoase. If it wa? advan?
tageous thon, it is much more so now, as wo
are enabled to purchase iron bends and buck
loa from eight to nine cont?; rope (heavy) at
from seven to ten.
It requires but a moment's reflection to per?
ceive the gain that is made, when cotton sells
at twenty-three, cents per pound and rope and
iron bands at the above-mimed prices.
In Georgia and the Southwestern Cotton
States this advantage is thoroughly understood
and appreciated, and tho consequence is, you
seldom see a bale from those States bonnd with
less than six good rope or iron bands, thus
securing to the planter a profit of over 100 per
cent, on his purchase of rope.
