day had an audience with the' Emperor. They
proceeded to the Tuileries, where they were
received with the courtesies usually extended
to diplomatic representatives of high rank, but
without military honors, and were ushered into
tte presence of tho Emperor. The latter was
accompanied by the Prince Importal and by
Marquis de La valle tte. Mr. Burlingame, ad?
dressing the Emperor, said ho hoped France
would receive China as a sister. France had
hitherto enjoyed all tho privileges accorded by
China to European powers. China now took
upon herself the duties of civilization and in?
ternational courtesy. The Emperor, in reply,
expressed his satisfaction at seeing-China take
euch a step, and said he would *"> pleased to
co-operate with her representatives. He re?
ferred to the commercial advantages likely to
arise from closer relations, and concluded
with general congratulations. All the mem?
bers ortho Embassy were pleased with their re?
ception. When the Marquis de Lavallette per?
sonally introducid Mr. Burlingame, the Empe?
ror expressed his astonishment at finding an
American acting as Ambassador of China, to
which Mr. Burlingame replied in a happy mau-'
ner, ?ad R long c- "Cation ensued between

Brown and Deschampes, Secretaries of

COLUMBIA, January 25.-Senator Corbin's
bill confirming and validating the municipal
election in the City of Charleston was not in?
troduced in the Senate as was expected to-day,
bul will be brought in to-morrow. One section
imposes upon any person refusing to give np
his seat a penalty of not exceeding ten thou?
sand dollars, nor less than five thousand,
or imprisonment in tho penitentiary with hard
labor for not exceeding five years, nor less
than two years. It is said by those who have
canvassed the matter that the bill will go
through with but trifling opposition, and that
Mr. Pillsbury and his Board of Aldermen will
be Boated in six or eight days at the farthest.
The case of W. J. McKinlay vs. Henry Tres
cot comes up before the Supreme Court to?
morrow, on the writ of quo warran'.o. D. H.
Chamberlain. Esq., the Attorney?General, ap?
pears for the Stato, and Edward McCrady, Jr.,
and William H. Treacot, eon of the present
incamltont, appear for th? respondent. The
point taken by counsel for Mr. Trescot is that
he has a commission dated 20th January, 18C6,
which continues him in office for four years.
They hold that this gives him a title to con?
tinue in office until January, 1870.
Prominent officials here are discussing the
propriety of funding thc interest due in July
and January. Some are in favor of adding the
amount of interest on the public debt to the
amount of taxes to be levied, with a provision
for the issue of interest coupons, which shall
oe receivable in payment of taxes. This, it is
thought, will absorb the interest on the public
debt. The question is causing a good deal of
discussion, and will be brought up in some way
before the Legislature.
IN THE SENATE, to-day, no timo was lost in
Buncombe speaking. Mr. Jillsou made an ad?

THE CITY FREE SCHOOLS.
The following report of the Commissioners
of Free Schools of Charleston, for the past
year, will he read with peculiar interest :
To the General Assembly of Ihetitate of Soulh
The Commissioners of Free Schools for the
Parishes of St. Philip and tit. Michael respect?
fully report :
That they have continued to discharge the
duties of their office up to the present time,
and notwithstanding the destruction of one of
their best school buildings, they have now in
their schools more children than at any previ?
ous period. The quarterly numbers' in the
schools at any former time was 2690, whilo
there are now 2818, ot whom 2024 are white aud
794 colored. The coloied school occupies the
Morris-street school-house, which is the last
and best building erected by the board, and is
organized and conducted upon the same plan
wuh the white schools. The destitution of the
pupils has induced the board to make greater
allowance for books for colored pupils in indi?
gent circumstances, and it will be seen by Ex?
hibit H that the amount expended per ?apila
is larger. The difference in the respective
Dumber of pupils arises from the fact that
other schools tor colored children have
been furnished from other sources, and thus
provision has been made for the entire colored
population of the city. This result is made
evident by the fact that while tho board has
been unable to receive all the white pupils
which havo been offered, not a sinele colored
pupil has been excluded, and the building pro?
vided for their accommodation has still room
for several hundred more. It is proper to add
that the colored school bas been well conduct?
ed, and its pupils, under the care of kind and
patient teachers, have greatly improved in de
poitment and knowl&uge.
The amoint expended during the last year
is $15,748 82, of which a more particular detail
will appear in the account herewith submitted,
marked Exhibit F.
The finances of the board aro embarrassed
by the failure of the State Government to make
the usual appropriation for the last year from
the State Treasury, and the boord respectfully
ask that this omission may now bo supplied,
and that provision be also made tot the coming
year. Unless this shall be promptly done, the
board will bo without tho means of carrying
on the work entrusted to thom.
The board deem this a fitting time to present
to the General Assembly tho results of their
work sinco the inauguration of the present
system of public schools in Charleston. They
have, thorefcre, caused tables to bo prepared,
setting forth these results in the various de?
tails which they presume would interest the
public, and they are submitted with this re?
port. As a general result from these tables, it
will appear that for a period of tea years, dur?
ing which this system has been in operation,
thero havo bden admitted into the schools
18,355 children, and that their/education has
eost $310,430 40, an average of SIG 91 for each
pupil. This average will comparo favorably
with tho amount paid clsewhereynotwithstand
ing tho fact that for several years of this peri?
od the expense of education was largely in?
creased by the depreciation of thc currency.
?The board further report that they have
nays regarded the normal instruction of
teachers as an integral part of public educa?
tion. They hove threforo, deplored tho
necessity which compelled them to discontinue
it upon the scale which was originally design?
ed. The destruction of one of tho Public
Schools, and the withdrawal by the Legisla?
ture ot the appropriation for tho Normal
School, were the cansos of this result, and they
earnestly hope that both these .clamit ?es may
soon be repaired. They take great pleasuro
in stating that the iDjury to toe public has
boen materially reduced by the generous con?
tribution made to this object by the Trustees
of the Peabody Fund. The sum ot fifteen hun?
dred dollars has been supplied by these gen?
tlemen during the past year, for the purpose
of promoting normal instruction, and two
classes of pupils have boen formed numbering
About m'xt.yT of who ai twc-thirds=-arc preparing
to bocomo teachers. This wise and judicious
application of their funds is most encouraging
in its results, r.nd the board hopo tbat the ex?
ample will react upon our own General As?
sembly, and induce a renewal of the appropria?
tion which was formerly made by tho State.

On Saturday Senator Cameron moved for an

and notified the Senate that bo desired to
know whether they intended to confirm any
moro appointments this session. Tho ayes

The Republican members of the House, to
tue number of about one hundred and twenty,
have signed a petition to the Senate, raquest
ing that body to refuse to confirm any further
nominations made by the President, and to
take no action upon nominations now pending
before the Senate. Some forty or fifty Radi?
cal members refused to sign tho petition upon
the ground that, in view of probable oxig?neles,
it would be improper for the Senate to refuse
to act upon certain classes of officers named,
and also because Senators aro competent to

should take in matters which, by tho terms

office, and a malignant spirit towards the peo?
ple of tho States named. "If the duties of
these State offices are properly discharged,"
said a distinguished Radical member of tho

The committee wero very favorably impressed
with his speech. There seems to be a general
understanding that, whatever is dono in the

THE NATURALIZATION TREATY.
Protocol for a Convention Between the
United States and Great Britain, He
gnlatlng the Citizenship of Persons
who Emigrate to and from the two
The following is the naturalization protoco]
showing the principles agreed upon by the
United States and British Governments on the
question of naturalization :
The undersigned, Beverdy Johnson, Esq.,
Ec voy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipoten?
tiary from the United States of America, and
Edward Hean-, Lord Stanley of Bickerstaff,
her Britannic Majesty's principal Secretary of |
Stale for Foreign Affairs, being respectively au?
thorized and empowered to place on record
the desire of the President of the United
States of America and har Majesty tho Queen
of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and
Ireland to regulate the citizenship of citizens
of the United States of America who have em
grated or may emigrate from the fnited
States of America to British dominions, and of j
British subjects who have emigrated or who
may emigrate from the British dominions to
the United States of America, have agreed
upon the following protocol :
First. Such citizens as aforesaid of the
United States who have become or shall be?
come, and are naturalized according to law
within the british dominions as British sub?
jects, shall, subject to tho provisions of arti?
cles two and four, be held by the United States
to be, in all respects and for all purposes,
British subjects, and shah be treated as such
by the United States. Reciprocally, such Brit?
ish subjects as aforesaid wno have become or
shah become and are naturalized according to
lan within the United States of America as cit
zeus thereof, shall, subject to the provisions of j
articles two and four, be held by Great Britain
to bo, in all respects and for all purposes,
Ameiican citizens, and shall be treated as such
by Great Britain.
Second. >uch United States citizens as
aforesaid who have bscome and ore naturaliz?
ed within the British dominions as British sub?
jects, and such British subjects as aforesaid,
who nave become and are naturalized as citi?
zens within ?he United States, shall be at
liberty to renounce their naturalization and to
resume their respective nationalities, provided
that such renunciation be publicly declared
within two years after this protocol shall have
been carried into effect as provided by article
four. The manner in which this renunciation
may be made and publicly declared shall be
hereafter agreed upon by tho respective gov?
Third. If such American citizen as afore?
said, naturalized within the British dominions,
should renew his residence in the United
States, the United States Government may, on
his own application and on such conditions as
that government may think ht to impose, re?
admit him to the character and privileges of
an American citizen, and Great Britain shall
not in that case elaim him as a British subject
on account of his former naturalisai ML In the
same manner if such British subject as afore?
said, naturalized in the United States, should
renew his residence within the British domin?
ions, the British Government may, on his own
application and on such conditions as that gov?
ernment may think flt to impose, readmit nim
to the character and privileges of a British
subject, and the United States shall not in that
cue elaim him aa a citizen of tb? United States
on account of his former naturalization.
Fourth. AB it will not be practicable for
Great Bu tain to carry into operation the prin?
ciples laid down in this protocol until provi?
sion has been made by the Imperial Parlia?
ment for such a revision ot the existing lawB
as tho adoption of those principles involves, it
is agreed that this portee ol shall not take ef?
fect until such legislation can be accomplished.
The British Government will introduce meas?
ures into Parliament for this purpose as
speedily as may bo possible, having regard to
the variety of publio and privato interests
which may be effected by a change in the laws
of naturalization and allegiance now under
consideration of the royal commission, whose
report is expected shortly to be mode. The
same provision not being necessary by the
constitution and laws of the United States,
this article is not made reciprocal.
Done at London, the ninth of October, eighteen
hundred and sixty-eight.
A similar treaty has been agreed to between
Belgium and the United Stales, and has boen
sent to the Senate for ratification. Also, a
treaty with Peru, almost identical with that I
with England, providing for the settlement of J

The machinery Needed for a Cotton Fae
tory; and its Cost?
Toe following will be found to be of much
importance to all those d?sirons of engaging,
in the cotton manufacture :
COBT OF ONE THOUSAND "BING" SPINDLES AND
One Mason's whipper.t 75
One picker and lappar.'.... 850
Four double doffing cards. 1000
One drawing frame, taree heads... 225
One Blabber, thirty-six spindles... .9 700
One fly frame, eighty-four spin?
One thousand ring spindles, at $4
Two reels, $35 each. 70
One bundling press. 50 '
One baling press. 75C
Four sets card clothing, at $60.... $240
Cans and bobbina. 200
bhaf ts, pulleys and belts. 700
Turning lathe. 50
One ten-horse power eugine. 1200
Extra charges for fitting up. 150
Total cost of machinery and fix?
The above is a detail of the cost of one thou?
sand spindles and preparation, without looms.
Without going into detail, $10 per spindle is a
safe calculation. One hundred spindles is the
common estimate per horse-power.
Twelve looms with accompanying machinery
consume one horse-power; forty looms should
be allowed to one thousand spindles for spin?
ning medium numbers, say twenties to thirties.
Looma cost $65 each.
The cost of one thousand spindles with pre?
parations and weaving machinery would be as
Whole cost of one thousand spindles and
preparation (deducting price of reels and han?
dling press, which are not needed for weav?
Forty looms, at $65 each. 2,600
One dresser. 450
One warper. 100
One spooler. 80
Extra charge for steam engine, say... ?. 850*
Extra charge for shafts and belts. 250
From this detail it appears that the cost per
spindle with looms is $18 60, bat a safer cal?
culation would be $14 per spindle.
For one hundred spindles without looms I
would recommend a one story building one
hundred feet long and fifty feet wide. If
looms are added, one hundred and forty feet j
long and fi tty feet wide. For two or three
thousand spindles, let the building be two or
three stories high, each story the same in ca?
pacity as above recommended.
As the cost of labor and materials in dif?
ferent localities varies, I refrain from giving
any estimate of the cost of building a mill to
contain tho above machinery. Any one can
do this with the capacity and cost of mate?
rials given. I would rem?rk, however, that a
building at the South, with the same cost of
labor and material, could be erected much
cheaper than one adapted to oar Northern
The return from cotton in well managed
mills is eighty-five per cent., although many
return seventy-five per cent. A loom in fair
operation will produce thirty-two yards per
day, running at one hundred and ten picks per
minute, and making cloth sixty-four picks or
threads of weft per inch.
The Matteawan Company have sent ma?
chinery to the South for a large number of
mills, and could probably furnish it a3 cheap
and at as short notice as any machine makers
ip th? country; although the best means for a
Southern company to start a miU well, and io
the shortest possible time, would be to engage
a good practical manufacturer, and let him put
the mill in operation and furnish a competent
superintendent for a specified sum. This plan
has been adopted, and I beheve with success.
Respectable persons can be found to take
charge of new facto .-ie* if the locations ore
agreoable. R ? ? ctfully yours.

BOLD ROBBERT IN NEW YORK.
Arrest of tue Thief anti Recovery of Ute
The boldest robbery every committed in New
York took placo at th: Park Bank, on Broad?
way, at half-past nine o'clock on Saturday
morning. Two or three men entered the bank
while the dorks were preparing for tho busi?
ness of the day, and without attracting atten?
tion passed to the rear. One of the clerks had
taken a large amount of money out of the safe,
and piled it up on his table, lt was done up
in bundles of various amounts. Some of these
bundles rested against the large plate glass
fronting the desk, which it was supposed
would ba adequate protection against thieves.
The janitor was in the front of the building
with the cashier, and the clerks were all at?
tending to'their duties behind the railing,
when suddenly a loud crash was heard, and
the breaking of glass resounded through the
room. The startled clerks looked in the direc?
tion of the noise, and saw a young man reach
through tho broken glass and take out a roll ot
bills, with which he fled out of the Ann-street
entrance. Mr. Rydor and Mr. Barry, attaches
of toe bank, and a number of othor persons,
quickly started in pursuit. When Mr. Ryder
reached thc street tho thief had about a hun?
dred yards start, and was going down Ann
street, toward Nassau. The cry of "Stop
thief" was taken up, and largo numbers joined
in the chase, The thief turned into Nassau,
and down Fulton-street. Ryder gained steadi?
ly on him until he reached Dutch-s reet, when
he slipped the money from under his arm and
let lt fall to the ground, hoping thereby to stop
the pursuit. Mr. Rvder did stop and pick up
the money, but Mr. Barry kept on, aud in time
(rained on the thief. Down Fulton to Gold,
and through Gold to Maiden lane, the chase
continued, when the strength of the thief gave
out, and officer John Kohler, of the second
precinct, took him in chtrge. The thief gave
the name of Thomas C. Pinto. He is about
twenty-two years of age, and five feet oigbt
inches high. The package stolen contained
about four thousand dollars, all of which was
recovered. Tho glass was broken by an iron
plate, about half an inch thick, a loot in cir?
cumference, and of octagonal shape. It had
evidently boon made for the purpose, as a
lan:o handle, semi-circular in shape, had re
cuntly been rive.ed to it. When the glass was
broken this instrument fell to the floor, adding
to the noise and alarm.
AN EQUINE ARISTOCRAT.-Tho following will
be intjresting to lovers of horse flesh, as well
as many others, as giving a brief resume of
Dcxtvr's daily life :
At six every morning Dexter has all the
water hu wants, aud two quarts of oats. After
oaling, he ia '.walked" for half an hour or
moro, then cicanod off, und at niue has two
quirts moro of oals. It no drive is ou the
card for afternoon, ho is given a half to three
quarters of an hour of goutle exercise. At
oue o'clock ho has oats again, as before, lim?
ited to two quarts.
From three to four he is driven twelve to
fifteen miles, after which be is cleaned off and
rabbeo tuoroughly dry.
Ho has a bore Bwallow of water on return
from drive, but is allowed free accoss to his
only feed of hay, of which he consumes from
five to six pouuds.
If the drive hos been a particularly sharp
ono, ho is treated as soon as he gets in to a
quart or two of oatmeal gruel; and whoo thor?
oughly cooled, has halt a pail of water and
three quarts of oats, with two quarts of bran
moistened with hot water.
Before any specially hard day's work or trial
of speed, his allowance of water is still more
