Charleston Coll ?ge.
Alderman Collins said be would like to make
a few remarks, which tbe Mayor replied he
might do if he would be brief, for it was very
warm; whereupon Collins proceeded to state
that' he had prepared a ticket which would
give the Council a full dose of the Mackeys,
but he bad discovered that the law required
the tux citizens elected as Superna ors of the
High School to be trustees of the Charleston
College, and consequently that his plan was a
fizzle. He would, however, announce that he
himself wa* not a candidate.
The Council then proceeded to the election

that A. G. Mackey was not eligible ander the

perrisors of tbe Hi?h School should be tras?
tees of the College.
Alderman Collins. I pres?me 1 am to blame

The same Alderman also introduced a bill to
organize and regulate a detective police force,
vf bicu received rs first reading and Was order?
ed to be printed. It provides for the appoint?

Thc bill to amend an ordinance entitled an
ordinance lo es'ablish the office of Chimney

Alderman Barrow thought there should be
some equality about the thing-that is, the
bond of a contractor up town should not be so
large as that ot a contractor down town, where
there are more cb ?mmes. The greater the risk
the bigger the bond-that is whit he con?
tended for. Alderman E. W. M. Mackey desired
to know whether he had counted the cbimnies
& ->d could fix a price.
Barrow said no-bat he would suggest $1000
for the thickly settled wards and $500 for the
thin settlements. Besides, these contracts
were to be given out to the poor men of the
Republican party, and the bonds ought to be

Alderman Barrow. I would like to -

Alderman Small. I bab de flo, and I say dat

On motion of E. P. Wall, $2000 was stricken
oat as tbe amount of the bond, and $500 in?
serted. The bill then passed.
The Mayor announcod that the following offi?
cials bad obtained sureties, which were sub?
mitted to the approval of Council:
Clarenoe Levy, Gauger of Liquors, $2000
bond; sureties, Henry Cobia and Lewis D.

George Addison, City Sheriff, $20,000 bond;
sureties, Robert Hunter, M. tl. Collins, M.
Caulfield and P. Brady.
Alderman T. J. Mackey moved that as the
Sheriff's bond was so large and be would be
the custodian of a large amount of money, bis
bond and sureties should be referred to a
special committee of three.
Alderman Collina said be hoped tbe motion
would prevail, and if they could only extend
the operations of the committee as far as the
Customhouse, they would find that the insuffi?
ciency of his bond was one of the reasons why
a certain person had recently been removed
Alderman E. W. M. Mackey stated that one
of the richest men in Charleston was on the
bond of the late Collector. It was not a straw
bond such as was given by one of the sureties
of the Sheriff.
Alderman Collins. If I remember the pro?
ceedings of the Legislature, straw bonds we
at a premium a little while ago.
The motion was not agreed to.
The bonds were all approved by the Council,
and Mr. Addison, the Sheriff elect, was then
There being no other business, Council, on
motion of Alderman Cunningham, adjourned.

ALDERMAN MACXXT'S Two EDGED SWORD
ONX EDOE BAS COT.-The resolution of Alder?
man T. J. Mackey, adopted at the last meeting
of Council, authorizing the Mayor to call upon
the police force to eject all of the city officers
who refused to yield their offices to their duly
elected and qualified successors, is like a two
edged sword, intended to ont both ways; bat it
also cats ooo way, even if let alone, If the
Mayor had used force to ejeot the officers, he
would of course hare secured the ill will of |
themselves and their friends. As he has re?
fused to take adrantage of the resolution, the
"duly el ected and qualified" and their friends
are disgusted, and will not rote for him at the
next election or support his policy now. Afraid
to grasp the two-edged sword tendered to
him by Alderman Mackey, he let it alone
and has been badly cut-or at least will be at
the next election.
ALDEBMANTO SUPPER G?TES BY JOSEPH H.
JEBES-FORMAL BUBTTNO OF THE HATCHET.'
On Monday night there was a sound of revelry
at a house on George-street, inhabited ty the
Mayor and bis stepson, Joseph H. Jenks, who
had giren a supper to the Board of Aldermen.
THE NHWS learns that all of the members of
the Board, excepting Small and McKinlay
(both colored,) wore presen t. Eren the leader
of theMaokeyites was there. It Whs a grand
affair, and passed off harmoniously, notbing oc?
curing to mar the enjoyment of any one ex?
cepting once, when Alderman Brown, colored,
with ere at gravity, put on his spectacles and
rolled up his tleeves preparatory to pitching
into the good thums set before bim, which ac?
tion at first created a slight consternation
among some of tbe timid Aldermen, who
thought that somotbing had displeased their
brother member, and he was bent upon pitch?
ing into things generally. It wero au idle
task to attempt to write up a description of
the feast, record all the toasts and speeches;
all ca? imagine the Mayor proposing "God
Sare the State," and Alderman Brown appro?
priately replying, m his usual eloquent man?
ner, with "My name is Norval, on the Grampian
Hills my father feeds his flock."
Briefly, tho afiair was a sucoess; the City In
spec or cut a big slice out ot his $1000 per an?
num to furnisH the entertainment; tbe Mayor
was happy, and both factions agreed to bury
the hatchet and proolaim to the world that
"Council is at peace."
DEATH OP AN OLD CITIZEN.-Mr. John Sam?
uel Peake, one of tbe oldest adopted citizens of
South Carolina, died at bis residence in Sum?
merville on Monday lost, in the eighty-third
year of his age. He was tbe sixth son of
Michael Peake, of Colehurst, near Market
Drayton, in tho County of Salop, England, and
was born Decomber 15, 1786. Ho came to
Charleston in 1807, sixty-two years ago, and
engaged in bnsiue.-s. On March 12, 1811, he
married Jane Ewing-oldest daughter of Mr.
Adam Ewing, merchant of this city, aua
tive of Renfrew, Scotland-by whom be had
eight children. Subsequently Mr. Peake with?
drew from business, wbicu he had followed
with considerable success, and planted in St.
John's holleton for many years. Baring lost
his first wife, he married Miss Susan Town?
send, and wi h her removed to Alabama about
the year 1835. By his second wife Mr. Peake
had two children. In 1866 he returned to
South Carolina, and lired in Sommerville until
Mr. Peake was a mau of shrewdness and de?
cision in business, and with him planting was
a labor ot love. Botany was bis favorite study,
and the zeal with which he cultivated choice
varieties of plants aud flowers was only equal?
