I S r? CI.LL XE ET Liva OF CITY COUNCIL.
1 A special moe; i og of Cou coil was bold last
Present-the Mayor, Aldermen Potter, Ged?
dings, Collina, T. J. Mackey, E. W. M. Mackey,
Barrow. Cuouingi am, Greene, Holloway (col
oied.) McKinlay (colored,) Thorne (colored,)
Small (colored,) Howard (colored) Brown (col
ore J,) L. F. Wall (colored,) E. P. Wall (color?
ed,) and Hampton (colored.)
A quorum being present tte Mayor announc?
ed that tho meeting waa open for business, and
called for a report from the com m it tee appoint?
ed to prepare a j a ry list.
The derk read the report stating that a list
had -been made on the basis of one juror to
twenty voters. They calculated 5671 colored
eui 6183 white Totere, making 388 c olored and
356 white jurors. They also recommended
that the report be engrossed and posted in
some public place for ten days and then sub?
jected to the supervision of Council. They
recommended the Courthouse and Postoffice.
On motion of Alderman McKinlay, the report
Alderman McKinlay (oolored) mored that un?
til otherwise ordered the iulea that governed
the City Council heretofore be observed.
Alderman McKinlay (.colored) mored that as
the majority of the board were new members,
the roles of the City Council be read for their
benefit The rules were then ordered to be
read by the Clerk.
Alderman Barrow said that there wai a great
deal of business before them. They were,
moat of them, new and raw Lands, and mast
feel their way, and moat do so aa a board. He
mored therefore that the meetings be held
weekly until each business as was necessary
was dispatched, and they could then resume
the semi-monthly meetings. He said it was
important that they should obtain the thor?
ough control of the oity. Work was now being
done, and there was no one to. superintend or
to be responsible.
Alderman Collins, in reply, said the Council
had jost adopted the roles of the former Coon
eil specifying the time for meetings, and the
changs waa. somewhat sadden. He trusted
the motion would not prevail. It was not se?
conded, and railed.
Alderman McKinlay (oolored) moved that
the Mayor appoint a oommittee of three to
prepare a list of the unfinished business of the
former Council, and present the same as early
The Mayor appointed Aldermen McKinlay,
(colored.) Putter, and Small, (colored.)
Alderman E. W. M. Mackey mored that Coun?
cil do KO into an election for city officors on
the 18th instant, and that the Clerk do give
public notice of the same through tho city
Alderman Collins said that- be thought that
the first step should be the nomination of com?
mittees, who would consider the subject and
Alderman McKinlay (oolored) opposed the
resolution as premature, and tending to dolay
matters. He thought the offices should be de?
clared vacant previous to that notification and
thus avoid contusion.
Alderman T. J. Mackey said it was timely
and jost. The present Council had been elect,
ed orer one hundred and eighty days ago, bot
their right was held in abeyance, and in the
interim a ngid proscription waa practiced on
erery one who had voted for their ticket. About
sixteen hundred able-bodied men were thus
prevented from obtaining woik and were still
idle. Their rotes won the election. They were
the true constituents ol Council, and any meas?
ure was welcome that woold shorten the tenore
of-office of the present incumbents. There
was a strong and influential party formed who
were actively working to delay jost snob action
as proposed by the resolution. lt was the old
story, the cash box vs. the ballot box. He
truste! the election woold not be deferred, as
the delay woold only give the opposition
Alderman Collins said that he did not wish
io reveal anything that had transpired in cao
mg, bot woold ooly allude to what was well
mown,' and hinted if the cap fitted, some would
ihow the cloven foot. ? A majority, or perhaps
I? large \ minority of the board thought that
hey. contd -retain their positions and yet
told fat city offices. He was proceeding to
ihow the im possibility of this, when called to a
?int of order, by Alderman T. J. Mackey, the
liaenssion being foreign to the subject.
The point was not sustained and Alderman
3olliu8 said that he only accepted the position
o keep a worse man ont. He wanted no office,
rhile his opponent, like other great men,
ranted to provide for his whole family.
Alderman E. W< M. Mackey said that it was
olly tune to aot on this- subject, and that he
atended to vote only for those who voted for
dm. He called for the ayes and noes.
Alderman Geddioga aaked if the officers had
wen declared vacant, for the p resent discus
ion reminded bim of a resolotion adopted io
. certain country town where it was deter?
mined, first, to erect a new jail; second, that
he old jail stand until the new one be built;
hird, that the new jail be built from the
naterial? of tbc old one:
Alderman? r. J. Mackey, in reply, stated that
he reference to the jail was probably induced
>y (he Alderman's association with these city
Alderman Geddings said that the city offices 1
rere held by diff?rent tenores, and that no ac?
ion of Council could declare them all' vacant.
After some fuit her discussion, the call for
he yeas and naya waa renewod, and the vote
?eing taken only three yeas were recorded- :
Alderman T. J. and E. W. M. Mackey (white,)
ind Small (colored,) and the mo?o?Vas lost. .
The Mayor read a communication from the
?ton. W. D. Porter, resigning his position as '
Jity Attorney. On motion, tbe resignation
Alderman Wall (colored,) moved to adjourn, i
ind Alderman Barrow request ed him to with- 1
Ira w the motion, as he wished to hiing some
natters of importance before Council. Ref.T- j
ring to hie watch, Alderman Wall said it WJS
:oo late for any more business. Alderman
Barrow replied th it they were not working on
time, but for tho good of thc whole communi?
ty. Aldeiman Potter responded with a loud
The motion was carried and Council adjourn
Bd, subject to the special call of thc Mayor.

Scrofulous affections and

loiu contamination until
they wore punfully afflicting, have teen radically
cured in such great Lumber? in almi tt every section
ot thc countrv, that tho uublic scarcely need to tx
Inlormed of tts virtues or ase?.
Scrofulous poison is oue of th? most destructive
enemies of our rete. Often this unseen and unielt
tenon: of the organism undermines the constitution,
ant Invites the attack ot enfeebling or fatal disease*,
without exciting a suspicion of its presence. A-nln,
lt seem? to breed infection thro tub the body, and
then, on some lavorable occasion, rapidly develojH
Into one or other oi Ita hideous forms, either on the
surface orsmong tho vitals. In tho latter, tubercle..*
may be suddenly deposited In Iho lungs or heart, or
tumors formed in the liver, or it shows It? pre.-ence
by eruptions on the skin, or loul ulcerations on -i mc
part uf tho body. Hence the occasional use ot a
bottle of tili? SARSAPARILLA i? an Hable, even
when no active symptoms cf Olecaac appear. Per?
sons athlete 1 with tbefollowiug complaint* generally
find iron ciliate relief, and, at length, cure by tbe
use of thia SARSAPARILLA: St. Anthon?'? Fire,
Roso or Erysipelas, Totter, Salt Rheum, Scald Head,
Ring Worm, .-ore l ye?, Sore Ears, and other emp?
tions cr visible forms of Scrofulous dh ease. Also,
In the more concealed forms, as Dyspepsia, Dropsy,
Heart Di: ea?e. Fits, Epilepsy, Neuralgia, and the va?
rious ulcerous affections ot the muscular and ner?
fy philis or Venereal and Mercurial Diseases are
cur>d by it, though a long time is required for sub?
duing tbese obstinate maladi. 8 by any medicine,
But long continued use of thu medicine will cure

relieved and ultimately cured by its purifying and

attend (bern; but she baa taken Plantation Bit?
ten for thc last ten years, and haa a child now 18

VALTBB, MY BOX,
Hei'i comes a mun who wai OLCO rich. He Lad
friends, and monoy. and a loving family, and posi?
tion, and it.lluoue ., and self-respect, and integriiy,
and a futuro ol usefulness before him. But, my
boy, he dou't look Uko it row. He was elected to an
important oiDcc. Ho forgot the lessons his good
mother taught bim, and was ask od by designing
poUti-ians to sell his vote to a party of swindlers; he
could not for tho life of him give articulation to that '
Utile word, and so he iel'.
HOW OFTEN DO WE BEAR THE COMPLAINT,
From mother and frther, that tbe son or daughter i '
not well; that they have no appetite; that they feel
languid; that the head aches all the time; that they
are throning thin and feeble, and that they have no
lite nor enorgy lett. And the questions are often
asked, What shall I do for them ? What shall I give
them ? Our answer ia, lot them try Plantation Bit

the same He'd in which to win honor, ftme and dis?
tinction, as had Franklin, FultOD, Hone, and a hoat
of others. Heia naturally sn art, but, Valter, my -
bny, aa he meeta na do youseft the excess of mois?
ture in his eye, the little puffy ridge under it the
gradual turning or the beautiful coman of the I
mouth, his mothar so loved to kiss. These, my boy,
tell a sad tale of early shipwreck, of disease, of pre?
mature death, of neglected and squandered gifts.
