key- nemarks of the Old and Blew Col?
A* one o'clock yesterday, Ur. George W.
Clark called apx>n Dr. A. G. Mackey at thc Cus?
tomhouse, and presented a lettei from the
President of the United States, infennina Dr.
Mackey that be had been suspended. He also
presented an order from the Commissioner of
Customs direct mg Dr. BI. to surrender his Of?
fice opon application from Mr. Clark, and re?
quiring Dr. M. to take from him duplicate re?
ceipts of all public property in bis chargo.
Dr. Mackey said he was happy to be relieved
from aS the responsibilities and anxieties of
the position, and though he might, in view of
the bad company Mr. Clark bad boen keeping
lately-, [il ia understood that Congressman
Bowen and Senator Sawyer are the bad com*'
pan? referred to] dispute the antheaticity of
tb? documents presented, he preferred to re?
cognize the validity of the communications,
and would comply without delay to the demand
made. As it was necessary, however, before
complying to make out schedules of the public
property he had, in order that Mr. Clark might
receipt for the same, he would at once com?
mence to mike them out, and when they were
completed the office was ready for him.
Mr. Clark claimed that as be had made his
application for office, be, therefore, was acta
ally the Collector, and in support of this view
he called the attentipn of Dr. M. to the fact
that the Commissioner of Customs, ia his
communication, had addressed him as the
To Ulis Dr. Mackey replied by showing a
letter from the Commissioner, under date of
Jnly 17th, in which he addressed him aa "Col?
lector ot the Port." This he declared was an
offset to the letter eh DWD by Mr. Clark. He,
however, expressed his willingness to surren?
der the office then and there if Mr. Clark would
sign receipts in blank.
This Mr. Clark refused to do, whereupon Dr.
M.expressed bis intention to protect his bonds?
men and himself at all hazards, and told Mr.
Clark that be would give him his ultimatum
in writing, which he did, as follows:

THE Fas nt KIRKLAND'S LAKE_Chief Eu- j
g neer Nathan has concluded his investigation 1
of the origin of the fire ia Kirkland's Lane. The'
testimony showed that the boase was inhabit- ,

was nothing more nor less than the lowest of j

Oua Nsw COLLECTOR.-A letter from Exeter,
N. H., on the 12th of July, to tbe Boston Trav?
eller, states that "Mr. Clark is there on a
visit to his relatives." The writer, after fur?
nishing some statements from the ex-Mayor's i
annual report, ("kindly furnished by him,")
showing that he had greatly im proved Charles- 1
ton during his term of office, says: "Ia fact ;
Mr. Clark completely 'Yankeeized' the city, and ;
it is a pity tt at he could not have been con
tinned in the office a few years to finish the
work he had so well commenced. But this i
was not to be." The writer then goes on to
show bow the collector was enobred oat of i
bis position by the "palpable frauds" of the elec- I
tionheld last November, and adds: "Mr. Clark
is a native ot this town, a graduate from Phil
lipeBxeter Academy, and will be remembered
by manx of your readers as for several years a I
member of the firm of lUlph Smith ? Co., of i
Boston. He will return to Charleston in a few
days to assume his daties as collector, a posi?
tion for which his attainments admirably
qualify him. Mr. C. went to Morris Island in
the latter part of 1863, and was among the first
to ea tabb sh himself in business in Charleston
after its occupation by tho Union troops."
BBUTAL ASSAULT BT A NEGBO POLICEMAN.
Yesterday moruing a DC.o policeman namod
Tom Butler was arraigned before Captain Hen
chicks upon the charge of maltreating a whito
mao whom he had arrested.
lt appears from the testimony given by Al?
derman Collins, that Butler arrested a drunken
white man, and because he would not walk,
shook and cuffed him, and when he laid dow a
took him by the heels and jerked him along 1
the ground, thereby severely bruisine his bead 1
and shoulders. A white policeman told Butler
to desist from his cruelty, and offered to aid j
him in carrying the pnsooer to the Guard?
house. Butler indignantly refused the prof?
fered assistance of Policeman Hogan, and ?aid
him if he interfered he would bavo him ar- i
rested. Alderman Collins was cal'ed and
cime, and remonstrated with the negro, who i
made some very insulting remarks in reply,
and said that it he had his club wi h bim he ?
would make his prisoner walk. Alderman
Collins then had the negro puf under arrest, i
but as soon as he was released be walked up
and down m front of the Aldeimau's house, |
and mad 3 threats against him. I
After hearing the evidence, which clearly es?
tablished the chargo, thc Chief dismissed i
Butler from ; he force. A.deman Collins then
made an appeal tor tho nee.ro. and the cbief ?
reinstated him, but fined him $10. ]

ly for some one to put an end to your miser?
able existence, tor your actions while a Confed?
erate officer in Char leeton and on the islands;
but, you infamous scalawag, you had better
prepare your soul, if you have one, for I will
soon send you before your Maker to give a
strict account of yourself, and rid Charleston
of one of the -est rascals the sun ever
shooe on. Would you know the reason I am
going to do it fur ? It is for being the cause of
having a dear friend of mine murdered. So

shall not live till January, 1870, if I am alive.

willingly give ten thousand dollars to any one

THE TBOUBLI OK EDISTO.-We learn from
gentlemen, in whom we have confidence, that
the arrest of Cyrus Hey ward had nothing to
do with the recent trouble on Edisto. Cyras
is a notoriously bad ne ero, and was arrested |
for drawing a pistol on Mr. Berg, a olanter,
who had ordered Cyrus off his place. The war?
rant was served on Cyrus by Mr. Marsiella,
who is a Swede by birth, but has lived in
South Carolina since his boyhood. There is
no "Northern man*' in him. Cyrus resisted,
oura ed Mr. Marstella, and was shot by Mr.
Marstella in self-defence, as Cyrus' wife was
banding her husband a gun. Gyros was not
tied like a calf, nor was he in any way ill
treated. Cyras was arrested on the 6th, and
was set at liberty by some negroes on the
night before the troubles. As to the true
cause of these troubles, it may be said that
tho refusal of the negroes to make up the lost
day-the 5th-was not general. On Mr. Ter?
rel's place, however, the negroes refused to
make up the time, being led by Moses Gads?
den, a prominent negro member of the Union
League, who Jolt!4je tellpw-laborers that they
would be fined ten dollars each if they made up
work lost on League meeting .ays, of which
the 5th was one. Moses said be was advised
by Peter Hedges-a negro minister and presi?
dent of the League-not to allow himself to be
ejected, and not to make up the time. In this
the Union League was to, stand by him. Tbis
was the immediate cause of the disturbance,
which ended very much In the way already de?
scribed in THE NEWS.
