[FROM OUR OWN C0BSE6PC NDENT. ]
COLUMBIA, S. C., December 19.-IN THE
SENATE, yesterday, Senator Leslie, of Barn?
well, waa readmitted to hie seat by an almost
nnanimons vote. Before taking bis seat, the
senator thanked the Senate for the justice and
magnanimity which it had displayed. He ac?
knowledged that he had, prompte! hy his
' ardor, indulged in language unbecoming a
gentleman and senator; but be desired now
To burv forever all animosity, so that the whole
Senate might address itself to its duties, and
ita members avoid all personalities. He hoped
that the Senate would commend itself to tbe
good people of the State, and good people
everywhere. ... _
When he had finished his remarks, Senator
Leslie took his neat, and soon after was taking
as active an interest as ever in the business of

Hr. Hoyt moved that the rules be suspended,
and that the bill receive its first reading.
Objections being made, the report and bill
was ordered for consideration on Monday.
IN THE HOUSE, to-day, the following papers
were entered on the journal :
The undersigned, members of the House of
Representatives, do hereby enter our protest
against a resolution authorizing the Governor
of the State to enlist a company of one hundred
or more men as a military organization to en?
force the civil laws of South Carolina, for the
following reasons, viz:
1st. Because the courts are organized, a full
. quota of civil officers installed in each county,
and the whole machinery of civil government
in full operation.
2d. Because in time of peace, which now
prevails in South Carolina, military organiza?
tions are dangerous to the liberties of the
3d. Because, even if the ordinary civil offi?
cers common to republican governments were
insufficient to preserve the peace in our State,
ample provisions have already been made for
the contingency by the organization of a
4th. Because, in eur ?pinion, this organization
will, irstead oz preventing lawlessness, be the
most fruitful agent in producing the very state
of affairs which it is intended to remedy.
5th. Because it greatly augments the already
intolerable burden of taxation by organizing a
military force to accomplish that which, ac?
cording to the organic law of the land, it is
the duty of the posse comiialus to perform
without any expense to the State whatever.
6th. Because it is in direct violation of the
spirit of all republican institutions, in that it
imposes an unjust and unequal taxation upon
that portion of the citizens of the Ste * who
may happen to reside in the vicinity where an
outrage has been committed, and thereby
punish the many for the violation of the few.
7th. Because the productive energy of the
country will be obstructed by the alarm and
- uncertainty arising from an acknowledgment
on the part of the civil authorities that recon?
struction is a failure, and that obedience to
the laws can only be enforced at the point of I

In th? exercise of a constitutional right ac?
corded to every member of the General As?
sembly, we record eur votee in the ne cati ve on
a bill entitieu "i. P?1 to regulate tho practice of,
medicine," passed by this body, yesterday, and j
assign as reasons therefor, as follows :
The ' law now of force in this State protects
the profession and. people from quacks and im
' posters more folly than the bill under conside?
ration, inasmuch as by it regular graduates of
the Alopathic and Thompsonian schools of
- medicine are the only practitioners allowed to
avail themselves of legal remedies for the col?
lection of their fees; whilst this bill provides
that the graduates of all medical schools, of J
whatever name or character, shall enjoy like
privileges. Ia addition to this wide door for
irregular practice already too common in th?
country, it places the regular graduate of the
beet medical echools who has sustained heavy
expense in the acquisition of his profession,
and spent, perhaps, a good portion of bis life
in perfecting himself in it. OB an equality with
the charlatan, who has been practicing bis
impositions on the people fer ten years with?
out any preliminary education whatever, and
without, perhaps, a single qualification for the
practice of any ?ne of the departments of

A bill to ratify and amend the charter of the
Charleston. South Carolina, Mining and Man?
ufacturing Company came up.
Whipper moved a postponement to Janu?
DfaLarge spoke earnestly in favor of the im?
mediate consideration of the bill, and explain?
ed the objects of the company and the good it
would do the Stale.
McKinlay gave a history of the company, and
hoped that the bill would be amended so as to
make it more satisfactory.
Whipper wanted time for examination and
preparation. The company propose 1 to issue
600,000 shares upon security of their property,
which might be valuable and might be two o?d
carts and shovels.
Bansieropposed the motion to postpone. Ho
spoke of the value of the phosphates, and said
that home enterprises should be supported.
Ur. Purvis said the committee were satisfied
of the amount of property pledged by the com
?any. They wanted to begin operations on
Hr. Jenks said that the object of the com?
pany was to issue stock and sell it in the North.
The stock represented nothing. There was no
evidence to show that they had $600,000 worth
of property. The assets amounted to nothing
like it. He hoped the motion to postpone
Elliott thought that the wiehes of the
Charleston delegation should be respected,
and the bill considered at once.
Bosemon said he found that if the name of
Charleston were inserted in any bul it stirred
up opposition. The company had a capital of
$600,000 when it began, it had expanded, and
no doubt had property to that amount. It bad
60,000 acres of land, and was the richest of all
the phosphate companies.
Wilder said that to name Charleston was to
kill a bill according to a previous speaker.
Something most be done for poor Charleston;
but he was not willing to allow the issue of
$610,000 worth of bonds which poor people
would invest in. Some one on the floor (mean?
ing Mr. Hurley) has given eome information
since the bill was reported. He hoped the bill
would be put off until the members knew
whether it was for the benefit of the State at
large as well as Charleston.
Hr. Neagle moved to adjourn. Adopted.

8AVANNAH, December 17-COTTON.-Tho de?
mand for the staple has been general during the
past week, but operations have been restricted in
consequence of the extreme firmness on the part of
holders, buyers operating only when a comparative?
ly cheap lot was offered. The weeks business has
shown a marked irregularity, pointing evidently to
a strong determination on the part of buyers and
sellers to meet the markot only under positive
orders. At the close of our review we can but re?
port a firm and steady market, with a fair demand
lor foreign account. We quote: Middling 23%a23%;
low midillng 23*23% ; good ordinary 22%a22%.
Friday-lue market opened easy; inquiry ?nd do
mand fair; msrktt closed quiet; all inquiry ceased
after advices from Liverpool. We quote middling at
23%a23%c. Sales 1543 hales.
Saturday-Market opened with light inquiry and
demand; transactions small; buyers and sellers could
net agree upon prices; market close'! quiet. Wc quote
middling at 23%a23%c. Sales 116 balee.
Monday-Market opened with light inquiry, more
for the purpose of inspecting the stock, seeing what
was offering and prices asked; market closed quiet
with middling 23%c nominal. Sales 313 bales.
Tuesday-There was some inquiry to-day, and a
few sales made at j esterday's pr.ces. but later iu the
day Liverpool showing a decline of %, with sales of
8000 bales, caused prices to sotten and buyers with?
drawing. Market closed quiet with middling at 23c.
Sales 698 bales.
Wednesday.-To-day the inquiry has been good ;
market ha been irregular; lac tors unanimous in
their quotations. Adriena from the North aud Liv?
erpool being favorable caused much more firmness
than was shown vestorday. Market closed quiet
but firm with middling 23%e. bides 1124 bales.
Thursday-Market opened with a very good in?
quiry. Buyers and sellers differed somewhat in
the r views iu regard to classifications and prices,
hence the sales were email ; market was not affected
by the advices from New York or Liverpool. Market
closed quiet but firm with middlirg at 23%c. Sales
SEA ISLAND.-There has been a very limited in?
quiry tho past week for Floridas and principally
confined to the low and medinm qualities. Opera?
tions have been restricted on account of tho firm?
ness of holders. The sales that have been effected
wore noon the following basis: Fine85a90; medium
70a75; common 53a6l. The receipts at this port
sine? the 11 th instant amount to 16,635 bales upland,
of which 13,067 were received per Central Railroad,
2549 per Atlantic and Gulf Railroad, 602 from land?
ings on the Savannah River, and 168 bales from
Florida. The exports for the same time have been
7734 ba'.-a upland and 64 bales sea island, ot which
2778 bales upland were shipped to Liverpool, 3111
bales upload and 03 bales sea island to New York,
612 bolos upland and 2 bales sea island to Philadel?
phia, and to Baltimore 600 bales.
FREIGUTS BT SAIL.-Owing to the light amount
offering, tho au vance of 1-lCd gained last week has
boen teat, and we have again to quote Liverpool at
7-ICi, many vessels iu port having laid on at 'jd
decline to submit to the reduction, and are now
?nable to complete their cargoes, as the amount of
tonnage willing to accept at the lower rate is suffi?
cient to afford room to parties desirous cf shipping.

WHAT BRICK POME KO V DID WRITE
AND WHAT HE DID NOT WRITE.
Eight o'clock, and ho is not here yet ! How
dreary this little room does seem, and I am BO lone?
some ! Ten o'clock. How I -wish he would come.
It ie so lonely here with the children asleep ! Once
bc loved to stay with mr, but now, alas ! Twelve
o'clock, and I am so tired, I cannot sleep ! My
heart aches Bnd grows sad. I am growing old, per?
haps. May be my face is not as fair as once, but my
heart is as wann, though it is often sad.
ABE YOU DYSPEPTIC,
Nervous, jaundiced, low'spiritcd, veik, or are you
sick and don't know whit ails yon; then try Planta?
tion Bitters and our word for it, it wiH cure you.
What charms eau bc find in that foul-eccDted
room, by that dusty table, cutting and dealing those
dusty cords, filling himscif with poison, tainting his
breath, ruining his mind, undermining his constitu?
tion, plantirg n-eds of disease, sqw 'nderhig his
mcney, clouded with smoke, tired w.th excitement.
Is this happiness ? is this life ? Is this our mission?
Oh ! I am so tired, do coxe home.

"DO TOD GO DOWN TOWN TO-NIGHT, MY PET ?"
"No darling, I have labored enough to-day. Why
should I flee from home, from happiness, from thee?
Life is full short to love-too short to tquander. I
love the photograph of my heart too well. No dar?
ling, my heart is hore; herc let me keep it company."
Are always pure, reliable. They arc strengthening
and invigorating, and are EThausted Nature's great
restorer. As an agreeable and p'easant tonic and
appetizer, they cannot be excelled.
THEY WHO ABE BICH,
Are they who mind their own business. Find a hap?
py man or woman, and the affaire of another trouble
them but a little. It is none of your business if the
minister kisses one of thc sisters, or ono of the sis?
ters thus e ilutes the minister. Tt cannot effect you
when a man you know calls on a girl you don't know,
or one you do. What if there is kissing behind the
door, in tunnels, and when the night is dark at thc
vestibule of the church, or even ever the gate. Would
you not do thc same thing if the chance was offered ?
A WINE GLASS FULL
Of Plantation Bitters, taken three times a day, before

brightly, and illuminate a once wretched existence.
For ladies it is an elegant and gentle stimulant, just
such as they require.
"I WENT TO THE LAND OF STEADY HABITS."
I wanted to hand soveral "bricks" down to pos?
terity, and waa told by father that with a New Eng?
land girl for a wife, I could raise more children, grow
more onions, skin more eels, sing more psalms,
know moi e of what was going on in the neighbor?
hood, hear more scandal, wleep less nights, have
more relatives, eat moro beans, love myself and hate
others more, and get more out of a dollar, than any
other eert of woman in this hnppy country so-called.

WTioso nome was Hexa Brlghtwater. and who was
twenty-nine years old; who wore red stockings, red
garters, metal tipped eho:s, preen spectacles, and
the prettiest red hair thc world ever se: eyes on or
into. Hexa, a true New England gil, chewed wads of
pine gum. and sweetened her broth with ouione'
Hexa wasn't so much handsomer than a doll as to
make the doll faint, but abo was inteUigent ; in fact, in?
telligence was her best hold but one; she was great

IE THE LADIES BUT KNEW
What thousands of the na are constantly relating
to us, wc candidly beli*ve ene half of the weakness,
prostration and distress experienced by Uiem would
JAMES MAKbH, ESQ.,
No. i:>3 West First-^reet, New York, says he
has throe children. The first two nre weak and
puny, his wile having been unable to nurse or
attend them; but sue has taken Plantation Bit?
ters for the laBt ten years, and has a child now 18
mouths old, which she has nursed and reired her?
self, and both are beatty and well. Plantation Bit?
ters ie invaluable to mothers.
VALTER, MY DOY.
Here comes a man who was once rich. Ho bsd
friends, and money, aud a loving family, and posi?
tion, aud influence, and Fell-respect, and integrity,
aud a future ol usefulness before him. But, my
boy, he don't look like it now. He was elected to an
important office. He forgot thc lessons his good
mother taught him, and was asked by desiguing
politicians to sell his vote to a party of swindlers; ho
could not for the life of him give articulation to that
little word, and so he Jell.
HOW OFTEN DO WE HEAR THE COMPLAINT,
From mother and father, that the sou or daughter is
cot well: that they have no appetite; that they feel
lungutd: that thc head aches all the time; that they
are crewing thin and feeble, and that they have no
lite uor energy lett Aud the questions are often
asked, What shall I do for them ? What ;hall I give
them? Our answer is, let them try Plantation Bit?
ters moderately, three times a day, and our word
for it they will recover.
AND HERE VALTEE, IS A YOONG MAN,
Just like you and us, my boy.. He has wit, sense,
education, in!elhg?ncc, friends, ambition, and is
loved. He ha6 a knowledge of the world, acquired
by mixing with its people He has ambition and
tue same field in which to wm honor, fame and dis?
tinction, as had Franklin, Fulton, Morse, and a host
of others. He is naturally sn art, but, Val ter, my
biy, as he meets us do you ste the excess of mois?
ture ia his eye, the little puffy ridge under it, the
gradual turning of the beautiful corners of the
month, hie mother so loved to kies. These, my boy,
tell a sad tale of early shipwreck, of disease, of pre.
mature death, of neglected and squandered gifts.

RADWAY'S RENOVATING RESOLVENT lu curing
the worst torras of Scrofulous Syphiloid, Chronic

consequent cure of Diseases of the Kidney, Bladder,
Liver, Lungs, Pancreas, Spleen. Its rapid influence

principle m Sarsaparilla that possesses curatm
properties; all other parts of the root arc inert and
useless. One ounce of the extract obtained under
Dr. Radway'snew process tor extracting tue curativo
properties from vegetable substances, contains more
of the true principle of cure than twenty pounds of
the ordinary roots.
SARSAPARILLHN is only one of the ingredients
that forms this truly wonderful medicine; and it is
the only compensating remedy that communicates
its purifying, cleansing and reinvigorating proper?
ties through the BLOOD, SWEAT. URINE, and
other secretions, securing a harmonious functional
action of every depraved organ and gland in the sys?
tem. IS the blood is corrupt, tl j Resolvent will
make it pure. If the Lum? are ulcerated and sore,
secreting thick phlegm and prurelent matter, the
Resolvent will loosen this deposit and repair tho
wasting lung with sound and healthy material, li
the Skin is covered with pimples, spots, puetuiee,
sores, ulcers, tc, the Resolvent will quickly removs

Glands are ulcerated, the Resolvent will cure these
signs or au early waste. Direct remedies, possess?
ing only exclusive properties, are hurtful, es they
increase UK functional secretions of on - organ by
suspending the constituent secretions of others;
hence, a compeusating remedy like the Resolvent is
tho only means of a permanent cure.
BEAR IN MIND THAT EVE RX DROP OF BLOOD

This remedy accomplished this wonderful and de?
lightful desideratum ia all cases of external and in?
ternal pam. ID an instant it afforded relief, the
moment it was applied to the parte ol the body
where inflammation or pain existed-it at once re?
lieved the patient of the most violent and excruciat?
ing pangs and throbs of pain, and imparted the de- -
lightful sensation of ease and comfort.
Every kine of pam, whether Rheumatism, Neu?

and Dangerous Attacks!
?I7 OWX CASE.
On Saturday night, the 10th, I was violently ee?ed
?vith Congestion of tbc Lungs. For 3 few days pre?
cious I lelt a dull pam over my lett lung, with'
occasional coughs, but being actively engaged, paid
no attention to it. Wheu seized, the pain was ec
piercing, cutting and excruciating, that every breatii
Irawm was like a red hot ?nile cutting my lung. Be?
ni? absent ti em home, I seut out for three bottles of
RADWAY'S RELIEF, applied the entire lot to my
,ungs, back, shoulders, tc, and in a few momenta
jot up couuter-irritation. Respirations were easy,
ind, as the skin became reddened, aU pain ceased.
In halt' an hour I was free from palo, and all signe
if Congestion, Inri .mmation, Ac, gone. This ts an
mportant cure. It is well that every one should
mow how tc use this remedy in severe attacks. The
?arne rule holds good in cases of Inflammation of
he Loins, Bowels, Kidneys and Stomach. Apply
he RELItF freely; soak the skin with it It will
nstantly secure tie withdrawal of th?- inflammation,
o the surface, and persons now suffering may, in
CHTET? MOTTES, be Ire* iroin pain.
Da cases where inflammation has existed for a
en?th of time, in addition to the RELIEF, take six
)f RADWAY'S PILLS. Powder Uem. in half ari
lour in mos; cases, they will ?perate. If not, re
jeat the dose. La one er two hours at the furthest
hey will operate, and thc patient soon get weR. In
Bilious, Typhoid, Fever and Ague, this treatment ie
?ure to cure. Let it be tried.
