top of his voioe, "murder," "fire," "help,"
"murder." He contined these cries until a large

Mr. James T. Welsman. in behalf of the
committee on the memorial of the pilots, read
the following report, which, on motton of Mr.
Ravenel, WM unanimously adopted :
The com mi'tte appointed by the Chamber, to
who m was referred a communication fr >m the
pilots of Charleston, setting forth the evils re?
sulting from the present mode of licensing
pilots under a commission appointed by Uov
errror Scott, respectfully report, that satisfac?
tory evidence has been furnished your commit?
tee that a majority of tbe board of commis?
sioners above referred to bare not been seafar?
ing mea. nar hare they had tbat experience,
.a navigators., which ii necessary to enable
them properly'to judge of the qualification of
applicants for licenses.
Some of the appointments under this board,
in the opinion of yonr committee, have been
unwise and injudicious. Foll and Mme Feet
Branches have been granted to in comp?tent
parties, notwithstanding the dissent and pro?
test of the only member of the commission
who was qualified to judge of the claims of
applicants; and your committee have been sur?
prised to learn that this member ot the com?
mission, wbo was a seafaring man and h flt st?
ol >BS pilot, has recently been removed from
office by his Exoellcncy the Governor.
These acts are calculated to impair the con?
fider, co of merobaots and underwriters, as well
aa ship-owners and masters of Teasels, in tbe J
skill and efficiency of the pilots for this port;
and has bad the tendenoy of creating d sgnet
and dissatisfaction among the old experienced
pilots, who bave felt a just pride in tho welt
earned reputation wtr.ch, as a body, they have
heretofore e joyed.'
If by the incompetency of pilots the naviga?
tion of our bar and harbor is made more prc ca?
ri ms, the repntatioj of our port will be serious?
ly affected and it is not unreasonable to appre?
hend that a more open and less hazardous har?
bor along; our seacoast may be selected for
the purposes of commerce, thus completing
the downfall of our city's prosperity.
Your committee have had placed in their
bauds two communications from masters ot
vessels, declaring tbe iooompeteucy of several
of these recently appointed pilots, and both of |
these mas era assert, that when coining ap to
the quarantine ship they fel* constrained to re?
sume the command of their Teasels, takine
the responsibility of heaving them to,
and also working them, and this while
their vesse s were under the charge of !
these incompetent appointees; and yout com- |
m it toe has this day been furto tr informed that
a recent appointment has been made of a per?
son who baasarved au apprenticeship ot flrteen
months only on board of one of our pilot boats,
and who, in tbe opinion of experienced pilots,
is entirely incompetent to discharge the du?
ties he has assumed, and would not be trusted
by them with the oborge of their boats.
The ordinances ot the oity under which, un?
til recently, all matters relating to the licen?
sing and government of pilots were provided
for, required that a system of apprenticeship
should be sustained, wbich, as a preparatory
school, worked admirably in fliting candidates
for their examination, and for the discharge
of tbe responsible duties which they were
eventually to assume.
These wise requirements, by which noue but
those who bad served a certain period of time
aa appreutioes. and had pissed sn exami?
nation before com pete u| seafaring men, could
receive a brauch as pilots, have b*en ignored
by the appointment of these inexperienced aud
incompetent com io issi juote. Nor has the act
of Apsembly, passed in S.ip ember. 1868 pro?
viding for tbe appointment of these commis?
sioners, been properly respected, inasmuch as
the act declares tbat the board shall consist of
three seafaring men. and that the pilots ap?
proved and appointed by them shall be gov?
erned by the laws heretofore in force, it not tu
consistent witb the present constitution or
provisions of the act.
It does not appear to your committee that
these requirements of the act, as to the con?
struction of the board or commissioners, and
the enfoioement of our salutary laws in rela?
tion to the bnjiness of pilotage, hare beeu
carried out in good faith.
The act authorized the Governor to appoint
three commissioners for tbe entire State, ind
to them are delegated the power to grant li?
censes for pilots of the four classes, for the
whole seacoast of Sont h < arolioo, and ?? the
navigable streams and rivers io tbe 8ta e. In
thswjpinionor your committee, this aol should
be repeated, and each seaport should be allow?
ed, os heretofore, to regulate the mode of ex?
amination, licensing and government of its
own pilots; and that the ordinances of the Cit?
of Charleston bearing upon this subject should
be allowed to have 'till force and effect.
In conclusion, your comm ttoe recommend
that a memorial te sent from thia Chamber to
the Goverrjor, asking that he recommend to
the Legislature, at its earning sessioB, the
repeal of the act above referred to.

Mr. W. G. DeSaussare, Chairman of Commit?
tee on the Beach Island Channel, submitted
the following report:
To Ou President and Members of the Charleston
Chamber of Commerce.
The committee to whom was referred the
subjjot of examining the Beach or Sullivan's
Island Ghanueh report:
That having communicated with Commander
Stooe, United States Navy, who is charged with
the duty of su penn to tiding the removal of the
wrecks, not a.one ii tbe Beach or Sullivan's
leland Channel, but also the other wrecks in
and around Charleston harbor. Monday. 19. h
July, was appointed as the day on wtiicn to
examine the B acb Channel. Commander Si one
was prevented from personally attending, but
was represented by Captain Perry, oommxud
ins one of the buoy tenders. The committee,
together with Captains Bell and Joues of tho
pilot boats Pride and Wild Cat, and Captain
Perry, of the buoy tender, proceeded io ex?
amino tbe Beach Channel at very nearly the 1 ^w
water. The examination was maae bv running
Unes upon the beach ahore of the ch ai mci in
midway, and alon? the shore ot Drunken Dick
Shoal. After these three lines were mu,
the soundings were taken in diaconal Unes
across the channel-way. A rough draft of |
the channel-way and of the soundings
?8 hereto annexed. The mean soundings
in the shoalest part of tbe chamiel
ivay proper was about eleven feet, and this
was but for a very short distance; the greater
pan of the channel showed a mean low water
depth of over thirteen feet. Tue greater part
sf the channel- .vav has an increase of Water
avor what waa then- jast priir to the late war,
tod but fur the obstructions hereafter men?
tioned, it won d present the shortest, safest
und most accessible outlet and entrance to the
port ot Charleston. The" obstructions referred
to consist of soma eight or ten blockade run?
ners which got ashore, some on Drunkej Dtok
Shoal, some on Sullivan's Island Beuch, Borne
on the Bowman Jotty. Thee wrecked steamers
bave formed, to a gr ater or lesser degree,
bulkheads, which have prevented the scouring
effect of the tides and have thus accumulated
sand beds around them. The steamers wreck
id upou the Jetty and upon Drunken Uick.
have thus combiuediy aided iu reducine the
surve known on the chart of 1860 as the
twelve toot curve, at its inner mouth, and have
narrowed the channel-way at tbat point to
about fifty yards.
In all other respects, the twelve and four?
teen foot curves of that chart are remarkably
well preserved, indeed, are perhaps better.
The careful examination made by the com?
mittee has led them to tbe opinion, that with
proper removal of tho wrecked vessels and
some little dredging at the point which bas
been narrowed, this channel eau easily be
made, as it formerly was, tbe'safest and short?
est entrance and outlet *o tbo port of Charles?
ton. The opinion of tbe committee was strong?
ly endorsed by tbe experienced pdots wbo ac?
companied them in the eoundings.
As r. gards the removal of the wreaks, there
does not appear to the committee any reason
why such work should rot be easily and speed?
ily'accomplished. Most of tho wrecks ore
those of iron vessels, and a contract bas been
entered into by Commander Stone on behalf of
tbe United Staten Government and a Northern
wrecking company for their removal, the com?
pany entering into bouda for the performance
of the work. The oontract at present allows a
percentage to the contractors. Should such
oontract not prove r?mun?r?t ive, possibly tbe
work could be done for a fixed price. These
wrecks ence removed, the scouring effect of
the tide would probably begin at once to bo
As regards the dredging away of thc sand,
two large wrecks upon the Drunken Dick Shoal
hits greatly contributed to the formation of
this obstruction. The natural scour of tbe
tides has partially made a sluice channel around
such wreck, but it has not been able unaided
to sweep tbe wreck awav. If tbe wreck is re?
moved, the committee believe tbat the dredg?
ing of a point of about two hundred yards and
of little width would quite restore the chan?
The committee are unable to givp any esti?
mate as to tbe amounts which would be re
3aired for the removal of the wrecks and tbe
The committee deem that il will not be with?
out interest, should they present some ot tbe
reasons why the Beach Channel may be re
carded as advantageous. In the first place, it
is very short, being not more than six to eight
hundred yards in length altogether. Io toe
next place it is not so liable to swells as are
tbe other channel-wave; it is protected by
Sullivan's Island on the north, and Drunken
Dick on the south, and these break the swell
of the wave*. It bas often hitherto happened
that when the other o ?anoel-ways were use?
less, because of the sea breaking in tbem,
this afforded a smooth passage. In tbe third
place, it sbortona the northern route of vessels
fully an hour, both because it is so much
shorter, and also because it falls into the
ocean so mucb to tbe north. And it is not so
liable to shifting as are the other channels.
Tbe Pumpkin Hill Channel has witbin the past
four years shifted nearly four hun dred yards,
and the Old Ship Channel, whioh bad been
blocked up by the stone fl 3et, but which is
again washing clear, has also very materially
The committee were charged with preparing
a memorial to Congress, asking an appropria?
tion to deepen this channel; but inasmuch as
they are nuable to get any estimate of the ex?
penses, they are at a loss bow to prepare a
proper memorial, and would recommend than
applio ition be made to < Treasury Depart?
ment to have a survey made, and an estimate
taken of the expense, wich a view to asking

which were almcst entirely informal, were of
an interesting character. The corner-stone
was laid by Mr. L. D. Turner, at the northeast
corner of tbe building. A bottle of champagne
was broken upon the stone, and when the
glosses were filled, the following toast was pro?
posed by Colonel R. Yeadon:
