COLUMBIA, S. C., Mareil 1.-Tho Charleston
Election bill was ratified to-day and presented
to the Governor toa his approval, lt is moro
than probablo that it will ho signed to-morrow.
The Governor, it is reported, has declared his
determination to see tho law enforced. lu
what way ho proposes to do it is not stated.
Much speculation is indulged in as to what
Mayor Clark will do, his friends still claiming
that Pillsbury and his supporters have only
suceooded in discovering an ignis fa'uis or
"Jack O'Lintern," or in tbo words of ono of
tbo members, ""What's tho uso of giving tbe
people a b"ll if you don't give them provisions."
Ho wanted to see "tho provisions of the bill
carried out; tho pcoplo aro starving because
tboy don't get provisions."
Attorney-General Chamberlain, who has
but recently arrived hero from Charleston,
leaves this city for Washington to-morrow. Ic
ia surmised by many that he ,;oc8 for tbo pur
poso of looking after tho patronage of Federal
offices to be distributed in South Carolina by
tho new administration. It is known that ho
carries a very large badgot of letters and ap?
plications with rccomin mdations, each docu?
ment covering several yards or folios of Iogal
cap, &c. All communications to him maybe
addressed to Willard's, Washington, D. C.
Tue real object ot his visit, howevor, is to at?
tend to an prgnment ia tho case of tho Grah
ilevillo Manufacturing Company against Benja?
min Roper, late tax-collector of EJgofield Dis?
trict. Tbo question involves tho liability of
tho State to receive bills of tho Bank of tho
State at par for taxes. Tho cato stands No.
2G5 on the United States Supreme Court
docket at Washington. A motion will bo mado
to tako it up in connection with a caso of tho
State of T nncsseo ou tho samo question,
which staudH No. 1G0 on tho sama docket. It
is boliovadtbc argument will bo mado between
the Gili and 10i.li of March.
A very important case of habeas corpus was
heard to-day bol'oro Judge Bioz.-r. Twelvo
prisoners tried and convicted by military com?
mission during thc cxistcuco of tho military
government in this ^tate, and who havo b.-on
lately returned from Fort Macon to tho custo?
dy or tho civil authority ol' this Stato, and
who aro now undergoing sentences of military
commissions, w^;o brought beloro Judge
Boozer, and a motion made for their uncondi?
Tho pnso::ers were rcprcsonted by Messrs.
Rice &, Sloan, ol this city, and tho Stato by thc
Attorney-General. Tho caso was elaborately
argued on bo b sides. Counsel for tho priso?
ners contended, substantially, tbat upou the
cessation of military role in thc Statu all son
teneos imposod by military commissions be. j <
carno invalid, and all partas detained in custo- l
dy or undergoing somcucea by authority of j
military government wera entitled to iln-.ir dis- ,
charge. They contended that (he proasians t
of tho prosont constitution required a present. *
mont by a. grand jury and a trial by a petit \
jury, aud tbe sentence of ibo jud. e. Tho pro- i
visions not having been obaorvod in the trial 1
and conviction of tboseprisouora, they were eu- *
titled to a discharge. i
Tho Attorney-General argued that the pro- i
visional government, established under ibo s
auspices of President Johnson and subso- (
quent ly vested iu the commanding geueialof ?
trna military district, dori ved its only force and ?
validity fr >ni tbe sanction of ibo authority uf c
tho United States Uoverniuont; thal if these <
prisoners were entitled to the r discharge.then t
all persons undergoing sentence passed under
tbo provisional goverument, by a circuit judge '
and other civil officer*, were clearly entitled to c
their discharge. Tho power of tho cirouit ?
judge, he argued, rested upon the same torin- t
dation that tbe powers of tbe military tribunal I
did, to wit, up n the authority of tho United c
Slates Government, which gave them ali (bo \
right winch either possessed to try criminals ti
and impose sentence:-. Tho third section of c
tho Reconstruction net of March 2, 18(17. ex- C
pro-sly euacted that a commanding tr?nerai, in 1
protecting lifo and property, should allow the r
looal civil tribunals to try criminal cases, but a
when in bis judgment it boeamo necessary, he .*.
should organize nnlita.-y tribnuals for that pur- t
poso. In tho case of the pribonora at the bar. c
tho commanding general bad decided that (
their cases should bo tried hy a military com- s
mission. Tho.-o military commissions wcro i
duly organized and proceeded to try and pass t
Muteness, and these ?entonces had boon ap- t
proved by tho commanding goticial. 'Tho only s
power which could now mit?gale or rcliovefrom ?
the e sentences was tho Governor, in the exor?
cise ot his pardoning power. 1
Tho Attorney-General said ho koo v nothing
of thc merna of tho case, and cared nothing i
for thc mer.ia, sotaras tins ul guuieut Was eon- c
cerned, of thc casca ol' the prisoners at the bar. 1
But ho was anxious tba', no step shou:d be
taken which would indicate that the prosint t
Stale Gov jriimout. which w >s tho result of Ibo v
ltcciinsliuction acta, should now stultify itself f
by declaring that tho steps which wcro Ukin t
by Congress wiro nugatory, thia would bo, f
ho 6aid, tho precise effect-tho logical effect-of c
tho discharge of thone prisoners.
Judge BJOZ..T delivered a carefully const'd
cied opinion, iu which he he d that tho views of i
the Atioruey-General ?mrs substantially cor?
rect, ile regarded tho suntenco imposed hy a t
military tribunal, during thc existence ut ihf t
provisional government, aa posse&ains the u
same validity as a *entu ce imposed by Judge 1
Moses as a circuit ur provisional judge p.is- t
Bossed. He called attention to tho conse
quei.ces winch inustfl >w in aJI directions Irom t
grouting such a niutiou as was now made in 1
behalf bf these prisoners, It would, ho said, t
unsettle all judicial prucoodings uudcr tho pro- i
Ihe judge remarked that tbo issue was not a e
new one, but one which he bad carefully con- I
sideio.i, ami one ol' which hu lek uot thc least t
doubt. Tbo quo-rion oi tho t: institutional i tv t
ot thc Reconstruction acts had nut beou raised
in loriad, but bo felt Hut grayling ?ho motion 1
now made would be tantamount to, and could i
oiiiy b?1 sustained upon thu ground M'at these
acts were unconstitutional. Suck a decision i
would not otilv release the-e prison, is, but f
would uuseat hims If and destroy tbs very i
foundations of thu presen! Statu Government, i

Lo? severe, tho Governor had ample power to
modify or to extend n full paid n. He could I
not t?r a moment think that lhere vujro any t
legal grounds upon wiiieb ho. as a judge ut I
South Carolina, could to-day interfer?? in any t
m ;nucr wi Ul tho soutenue pronounced by imi?
tar, tllbuualg. Ho therefore ordered thc pris?
oners lo bo remanded. t
Aooihcr interesting legal question waa raia- '
ed a tow days since belum Judgo Boozer. A
motion was mado for a prutitbilioi to thc
Treasurer of tlio State to restia.n bim from v
the collection ot taxo-for the fourth quariei
of 18?8. under General Canb\ 'a Order No. 13!), v
which levies a lax of t.voniv ceuls ou tuc hun- I
died dollars upon all sales ot cotluu ?ind ulher |
morchmdiso. AIIO C?BJ was arguoJ for the
plaintiffs to tho cause by ex-Chaneeifor Carroll, c
and for ibo Stain by Mr. Sulieitor i n lev. It was i
conteiidod on bell tit of thc plaintiffs that this
tax WCB unconstitutional, because it came in
conflict with that clauso of tho Constitution of
the "-tate which directs that ull laxo- upon I
property, real or pe; sonal, shuu d ha assessed c
upon its actual value at the time of assess- I
It was a'Bo urged Ibtt under the act of 1SC8 I
ff> quiet nghis vested under military order- t
which rc-euaoted Order No. ISi). that tt.is lax i
could not bo collected, inasmuch as the act \
was only intonded and in faci onlv did quiet 1
rights o'f property, &c, iu vofcreuce to which t
judgments or decrees had nlroady beou made t
and ? ntered, and ho ace did not apply to tho j
oolleotion of future ta?s under that order; in
short, that it only quieted rights wi,icu had
become vested at the time of its passaee. It
was furthor argued for the plaintiffs that the
act itself which is entitled "An act to quiet
rights vested under military orders," could not
be hold to the extent of enforcement of Order
No. 139. because that purpose was not express?
ed in the title of thc act, anti even if it were so
expressed the act would thou become obnoxious
to that clause of the constitution which re?
quires that all acts shall relato to but one sub?
ject, which was to bo expressed in the titlo of
For the State, tho Solicitor contended that
tho clauso of Ibo aonstitution requiring all
taxes noon property to be laid upon its actual
value at tho time of assessment, could not bc
hold to apply to tuxes upon sales, because sales
were not property, that this tax. therefore, be?
came substantially a tax upon incomes, upon
thc tccoipts of business, and not upon property.
It was also urged in reply t > too second argu?
ment of counsol for plaintiffs, that the entire
matter embraced iu tho act referred to consti?
tuted but ono subject, which was expressed in
its title, and that if tho object of the aol hud
only been to quiet rights already vested, there
could be no motive for re-enacting Order No.
139. In truth, tho object of tho act clearly was
to malcc Order No. 139 the tax law of tbc State
until such times as anew tax law should bc
passed and a new tax actually levied; heneo this
tax upon sales was still in forco and would cor,
tiuuo so until thc new tax law went into opera- '
Judge Boozer decided that the prohibition
should be granted mainly upon tho second
ground ttkeii by counsol for plain fifi's, namely,
that thc act referred to only extended to quiet
rights which had boon or become vested at tho
dato of its passage under military orders, de?
crees or judgments.
Notice of an appeal from this decision was
immediately given bv tho solicitor, and a writ
of error to the Supremo Court is now in prepa?
ration. If this writ :T Hied within fivo days,
enccifving the object.it will operate as a su
' rcedoas, and tho treasurer will proceed with
tue colictiou of tho tax upon sales of cotton
ind other morcbandise as Itoretoforo.

TUE NEW ADMINISTRATION.
Inauguration Pr?par?t long-Thc Ball
and Procession-TH? Negro Question
Tho President and President Jfleet
General Grant's Cabinet-The Geor
glans and General Grant.
A Washington telegiam of Sunday ovening,
to the Baltimore Sun, says :
Thc preparations for tho unofficial ceremo?
nies of inauguration diy aro nearly perfecred,
and the procession aud ball are likely to proto
tho grandest and largest over witnessed on a
like occasion in this country. Everything per?
taining to those havo gone ou harmoniously
thus tor, savo as to the admission of or rel usa.
to admit colored person- to tho hall, an 1 us to
the immensely imp?t tant questions of prece?
dence of position in tbo procession and of con?
trol thereof. The littlo me i who want to bo
groat, and who pant tor dist mei ?on on this oc?
casion, and io come under thc special and ap?
proving observation of tho President elect, are,
tou,e the catalogue phraso, too numerous to
The rival claims for consideration and for
this or that position in the line havo given tbe
managing committee more trouble than all
oil.er matters combined, and tho momentous
question is \et undecided.
Tho committee, bowevor, have disposed of
thc negro admission d.fliculty, and authorize
tho announcement that colored persons will
not bb present, the high-toned colored popula?
tion having too much self-respect to force
themselves into society whoro they aro not
welcome, and thoso who havo not any self-reB
pect will not bc admitted anyuow.
Tho comm ttou not desiring to act on more
rumor that General Grant will not lido with
President Johnson to tbo capitol, and that Mr.
John-oii don't care mujb about tbe ride any?
how, have made a sort of compromise of tho
difficulty by providing places in the procession
tor both these distinguished persons. Two
rows of carriages aie to move along abreast,
the one on tho right sot apart for the President
and members of bis Cabiuet, tho other on tho
left for the Piosidont elect and bis staff, tho
procession to start from Gonerol Grant's head?
Urcat interest is taken in all thoso details,
but-thc all-absorbing matter is found in tho
lui mat ion ut ti new Cabinet, and there are hun?
dreds hero eager to re icvo Co >er.i. Grant of
that important l.bir. nur, the President chet
will havo none ot Ibo proffered aid, and to?
night we stand, so far as relia bl information
ou thc Uabii'dt subject is concerned, jii?tabout
where wo- did whoa General Grant concluded
his acceptauco responso, ?herein he frigidly
b astod i lie houcs ol ibu C.b.net makers alrea?
dy assembled herc to patriotically assist in
forming H IMJW .-ulniiniutiurjon.
There is ab-oluiuly nothing positively known
about tho matter save to General Grant, who
it is said to- light, will aniiuitnco the names ?t
thc new Cabitiot on Tuesday uoxt. Even this
is mero rumor.
A Congres mm called yesterday upon Geno?
ral Grant tu Biy tu it in c iao Adm ral Porter
should not resign. Ins position in thu navy tu
lake the uffieo of Bocretary of tho Navy, ho
wished to urge lb . selection of Governor Haw

pecially, bad begged General 'Iratit t . adviso
ibo members ot tho llcconstrnction Comniittoo
to refrain from legislation incendod to exe ludo
members who han already boon regularly ad?
mitted to their seats, and that General Grant
bad received information from Geueral Meado
and others us to thc status i f affjira in Geor?
gia, which mado it advisable that there should
be no turthcr legislation at mistime relative to
General Grant also opposes army reductions
at present. Tho proposition before Congross
would disarrange his plans for io organizing

Of tho promotion ut Sherman.
Mr. MoCaunon, a prominent lawyer of Wask

immediately ?ailed to soo Geueral Grant's

town was full uf it, and of . uurse MoCaunon
was the coming mau from Pennsylvania. Ile
had been seut for specially by General Grant,
whose carriage was in waning at thc depot fur
thecommg man, into which the latlor jumped
and rode hastily off to dram's residcucu.
1 give this aa a apociinonof ibo trivial things
on which rumers ure started about the forma?

to be that Mr. McCannun did riot ride in

Another corresponden', of the samo paper
After all that bas been said upon thc subject,
thora is not much liitelihood lhat any one will
detiditely know who aro to emu po ie Gonoral
Graut's Cabinet until ofter tho inauguration.
Ile remarked to-day th it no good general
would announce to ina enemies in adva-cc ur
a c nu pa ign what officers had been selected to
uuinmaud his artnieiy, cavalry und infantry ;
that he was aware how d.flij lit lt vvuuln bu for
bim to please tbo vario JU cuquea of politicians,
who hop d to get their own mon into Cabinet
positions, :md that he mid no desire to autag
Otnzu nis adminis. ration at the outset with any
blanch of ibu ltopublican party. Ho s dd,
further, that, although ibo gentlemen whoso
ii .nu H ho proposed to soud to Hie Senate
might not bo noisy politicians, tiny were good
aud tine men, whu siu.id by i lie country during
the war. und who had volt d for tho Republican
ticket last tail. Tins, he ad <cd, may nut please
sum-of my Pennsylvania friends, who aro so
hard io please, but I shall nevertheless, do
wnat I behove lu bo rig.it.
Then; aro some very important rumors on
tho streoi lu-mgiil. which seem tu have good
foundation. Co rum. r ia tint General Grant
will i3.-uo his lirai, m iler as comm uider-in-chiof
of the army on Friday next, and that it will be
;i uotice 'o all ihai the Eecoi.slruotion LITS of
Congress are to be earned out in good faith
"by officers wh sn sympathies aro righi." Au?
ntie r minor is that General Sheridan will bc
sent bicii to his command at New Orleans, in
place ut General buchanan; that General Rey?
nold* win go ?gaiu tu Texas to relieve General
Dauby; thai. General Sickles will relievo General
Meade, uuu that General Gillern will also bc
A Washington dispatch of tho 27th ult., to
tho New York Evoniug Pout, says :

Grant said: 1 think a President should bo
allowed tu choose his Can.i.ot without inter?
f?rence from any ono. They are his confiden?
tial advis is, and he must best know whom bc
wishes to cad to him in that capacity.
In oll.cr positions under tho gow rnment be

may properly act without sogKestions from any
teen ce. One thing ho would say: 1 hose wiiem
bu selected would all bc men who were loyal to
ii.a Union during the war, and who gaven
strong tiiid fuithiul support to the platform
ticket on which ho was elected.
They might not prove to bo tho host men in
practice, bat be should soon discover the fact,
aud be could make chancea at any time in
that case. There was no difficulty about that.
Iee roon ho had selected would not remain in
the Cabinet, bo thought, if it waa not agree?
able. He bad originally intended to write,
abont a week ago, to each gentleman whom he
had fixed upon for a Cabinet position, asking
him to serve, but he was glad ho had not done
so, and now he would keep the whole matter
to himself until the appointments wore sent
to the Sonate. That saved much trouble to
him and to the gentlemen he meant to ca'l
around him; bat hu had already made up his
He could send in the whole Cabinet at that
moment. Still, be might at any t.mo chango
his mind; and. so long as the names were
known to.him alone, he could do so without
offence to any one. H s incautious utlaranco
to tho Pennsylvania politician tho other dav
had already given bi.nsolf and others much
needless trouble. Some persons seem to take
i'for granted that, ho had designated Mr.
George H. Stuart for a place. -He had not
said any hing of the k.nd. and did not mean to
tell ar.y one wheth r be bad or uot, but as per?
sons had spoken 'guest Mr. Stuart, be wished
to say t i the Pennsylvania gentlemen that Mr.
Stuart was a loyal man during the war, and an
honorablo man. That did not imply, however,
tbat ho (Grant) would or would not appoint
him. The delegation then withdrew.' ' .
