As has been stated bj TEE NEWS, there was
a srreat a mono t of caucusing by the Pillsbury
faction in reference to the offices of the Police
Department. This caucusing And canvassing
has occupie 1 nearly all of the time of said
faction for several weeks past, and up to half
past one o'clock Friday afternoon there was a
diversity of opinion. The Slay or had pledged
himself and his faction to the support of Major
R. H. Willoughby, but five of the faction, viz :
Aldermen Voigt, Cunningham, Geldings, How?
ard, colored, and McKinlay, colored, not only
refused to support him, but declared them?
selves in favor of Hendricks as the more effi
cioitof the two candidates, and at the hour
mentioned formally seceded from the caucue.
The leader of the liackeyites bearing of this
secession, summoned his adherents and bj a
well-timed flank movement formed a junction
with the secessionists, and after a collation ni

various refreshments were lavishly furnished
by Captain Hendricks, the seven Mackey i tea

Tue PUlsburyites (the Mayor, Potter, Greene,
Collins, Urn all, colored, and Brown, colored,)
arranged their tickets as follows: Major R. H.
Willoughby, Chief, T. B. Chapman, First, and
Benjaman Holloway, colored, son of Alderman
Holloway, 8econd Lieutenant. They hoped
that the fire who had seceded would think bet?
ter of their action, return into the fold of the
faithful, and vote the Willoughby ticket, and
therefore came into the Council chamber con?
fident of success.
The election resulted in Hendricks receiving
12 votes, T. B. Chapman 17, W. N. Taft 12,
Holloway, colored, 6-Hendricks, Charmian
and Taft, tb? nominees of the Mackeyitea and
"splits," being elected, much to the disgust of
the "faithful," and especially of Alderman Hol?
loway, who, on being commiserated with ia
the Council chamber by Alderman Potter, in?
dignantly denounced what he termed the
treachery of those with whom he had acted,
and bitterly bemoaned his failure to get his
The flank movement of the Mackeyitea not
only defeated the Willoughby ticket, but also
occasioned the election of several of their
friends as Commissioners of Markets, and es?
pecially in throwing off the ticket Julius
Rou milla t and placing thereon and electing
Thomas Aiken, a colored botcher, weighing
about three hundred pounds, who is said to
be quite a respectable odored man, and of
some uoeigM among his class.
The result of this election is due to what is
termed the anti-Massachusetts party, (com?
posed of native Radicals.) which is rapidly
growing in numbers, and who have fer their
object the expulsion from the State of all
carpet-baggers-nearly all of whom are from
Massachusetts, hence the name anti-Maesa
ohusetts. To this party Major Willoughby
owes his defeat, and all members of the Radi .
cal patty, not natives of Charleston, will here?
after meet with strenuous opposition from
this anti-Massachusetts clique.
The eleo?on to-morrow night forSopervi

tis further announced that Alderman T. J.
fiackey will, mach to the disgust of nomeroo3
nnoe-seekers, lead his band in support of D.
r. Corbin, believing as they do that the city in '
riving him only one office while the State has
riven him Ave has done Him great injustice.
They claim that the city should aid him in

clean sweep in the Customhouse. It is not
jet known who will be appointed to fill the
positions of the retired officers, nor what will

of Dr. Mackey are confident that the Senate
will not confirm the appointment of Mr.
Clark. _^_ _
BRUTAL MUADKS AT ASEBPOO FERRY_TBS
News on Saturday learned the following re?
garding a brutal murder committed on Tues?
day last, by three negroes, at A-hepoo Ferry,
on the Charleston and Savannah Railroad,
thirty-seven miles from the city: A negro
man, it appears, had interfered with the do?
mestic arrangements of another negro. The
wronged husband, with two friends, went to
the plantation where the disturber of his peace
lived, and, without warning, shot him. The
negro fell and was then hacked to pieces with
hoes by the two friends. The victim's head
was beaten in, and his legs and arma cut off.
The husband has escaped, bat his companions
are under arrest.

Friday afternoon, between F. C. Miller and
Mark Reynolds, durinsr which the latter gave
the former a severe drubbing despite the dis?
play of his pistol, waa concluded then and
there, and all parties appeal d to be satisfied.
But not so. Saturday morning F. C. Miller ap?
peared before Meg ?Berate Mackey and sued out
a warrant for the arrest of Reynolds, on the
charge of assault and battery. Reynolds was
arrested, and gave bonds in the sum ot $500 to
appear for trial at the General Sessions of the
State Court in November next. It is but jus?
tice to Miller to state that be was knocked
down once when not even aware of the pres?
ence of bis adversary.

In Southern seouritiei the new North Caro?
linas were weak and pressed for sale, owing to
the issue of a large number of new bonds to
tbe Western Noreb Carolina Railroad Company,
dated April 1 i860. Tennessees were more
steady, and in some quarters there was a feel?
ing that the interest would be paid np, as tbe
railroads would be forced to liquidate their
indebtedness to the State. Louisiana levee
