THE RICE TIERCE. -In noticing; yesterday
tbe mooted question of taking off the charge usually
made in this market for tierces in selling rice, we
wrongly said that the principal factors bad agreed to
abolish tbe charge. The truth is that the buyers ol
rice are the movers in favor of the abolition, the
firms who sigurd the circular which wo printed be*
lng the principal dealers in this city. We have no
doubt that tho factors will consider the propriety
ef making the ?hange, tnd we tru-t tbat they will
soon declare that to be the p: sihve fact whick THE

We leam that a special meeting of the Chamber of

party, who claim to hare been electe.l at the No?

with the ordinary course of legal proceedings, and
there is scarcely a colored man in town who does not
know that a writ of ma rfamuJ means GET OUT 1 and
thit a writ of quo warrante means WHAT BIGHT
HAVE YOU TO STAT 1 The interest in the result of
this comest is in'ense. and at ten o'clock yesterday
morai og the courtroom of the Circuit Court wis fill?
ed with spectators.
The Aattng Mayor and Aldermen were represented
by the HOD. W. D. Porter, City Attorney, Theo. G.
Barker. Esq., and C. Richardson Miles, Esq.; the
claimants being reprtsonted by the Hon. D. T. Cor?
bin, United States District Attorney.
The return to the writ of mo adam us waa read,
'the respondents say that they do not surrender
their ofices because they are in possession rf said
offices, having been admitted and sworn under ap?
pointments and elections duly made, and that the
?mandamus is not tho proper remedy; and, luriher,
that by the acts of the present General Assembly,
they are entitled and bound to continue in office
until their successors shall be elected and qualified
according to law, and that Gilbert Pillsbury and the
other petitioners have not been elected and qualibed
according to law. They then recite tho well-known
circumstances of the election, the contest, the find?
ing of the Board of Aldermen, and say emphatically
that the validity of the election of"Pillsbury and the
other petitioners has never been j u i i c i al ly deUnaiu ed
otherwise than by the Acing Board of Aldermen;
that the Supreme Court expressly declared that
they did not mean to express any opinion as to tbe
rights ot the petitioners to the offices claimed by
them, and that the petitioners aro entitled to have
the same determined by a due process of law. They
also say that they are advised that the act to con?
firas and declare valid the recent municipal electicn
ls contrary to the chartered rights of the corporators
of the city, and also to the 12th, 14th and 26th sec?
tions of the first article of the Constitution of k> .
State, and to the 20th se: rio a of article 2d of ina
same, and te the Fourteenth amendment to the Con?
stitution of tbs United ?tates. In conclusion, the res?
pondent!! admit the demand of Pillsbury and
the other petitioners for the offices and
properties of the airy, but say "I bat the petitioners
were not duly elected and qualified, and hive no
right or title thereto; and that inasmuch as the re?
spondents ai e been ad mn ted, sworn, and are actu
ally in possession ef their several respective offices,
the proceeding by mandama? is not the proper re?
medy for the petitioners, and they pray that the
same be quashed." Signed by G. W. Clark, Mayor,
and Aldermen Gedding?, Potter, Lindstrom, Deretf,
Cade, Olney, Honour, Rh?den, Marshall and Voigt
The pleas to the writ ot quo warrant? are to the
effect tbat proceedings under a writ of quo warratta
were depending in the Supreme Court at the rime of
filing the information and issuing tho rule in this
case, and that tho information should be quashed.
The counsel state the fact that all the Aldermen were
appointed by General Canby, save Messrs. Honour,
Whilden and Olney, who were duly elected ia 1866.
and that they are bound under the eily charter and
the ac's of the present Geaeral Assembly to hold
their offices until those effices are filled by tho elec?
tion and qualification of their successors, and that
no ?uccessora have so boen elected and qualified.
They admit that the demand was made by Pillsbury
and others for the offices and tho prop-rty belong?
ing to them, and that they did not surrender thc
same because thc claim mts have not been duly elect?
ed and qualified, and ore not Mayor and Aldermen
of Charleston. The plea is signed by the Bon W.
D. Porter. C. B. Miles, Esq.. and Theo. G. Barker,
Esq., counsel for defendants.
After the reading of the returns, Mr Corbin said
that in view of the ne* isaues and questions brought

THE LIPE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA.-We
publish this morning the advertisement of the Lite
Association of America, a company which, in the
course of nine months, has secured an annual reve?
nu ', from premiums on existing policies, of nearly
half a million of dollars. This, as we understand it,
ls but th? natural result of the system upon which
tho company was established. A well tried and pop?
ular plan was adopted. This was the first step, and
theo a sufficient number of the merchanls and capi?
talists of St. Louis insured their lives to put tee com?
pany upon a sound basis. So the company obtained
a large paying business without the expeEscs for
agents and advertising, which in tho ttl at years press
so heavily upon new cotnrauies. We may tdd that
it is a part of the system of thc compiny to invest in
each district the premiums received in that diftciet,
so'that no m .ney paid to this company for premi?
ums will be drained out ol tbc State
The following extract from au article published by
tho "insurance Monitor,*' tho independent and ro
spectablo organ of insurance interests, will show lh?

about $150,000 is paid ?ut from this State monthly
for premiums of bro and marine insurance, and it is
the obj' ct of the new company to ?etain and use ibis
capital at home. Before the war local companies
were very prosperous, paying for many years divi?
dends ranging as hieb ns twenty per cent., while
their shares sold at fitly per cent premium. There
is no reason why a similar good fortune should not
