tributed, but thej faU far short of the amount re?
quisite to afford reading matter for the leisure
hours of these beyi and young men. They are
fond of reading, as the sons of educated men usu?
ally are, and unless good, wholesome literature
ls placed within their reach, they will devour the
miserable trash and ten-centa novels afloat
through the country. Many of our citizens can
spare a few books to assist in this work without
damaging their own libraries. Favors of this
kind will reach their destination if sent to the
principal at the school, and will be thankfully re?

all abated on Saturday. ' A few members o

the Radical leaders that lt " would all come

self about inspecting flour, and Mr. C. N. Ai

Alderman Geddlng's name and character t
became a mark for his Aldermanic brethren

While this discussion was going on, Aidera
Wall and Small, colored, slipped out, leaving o
seven members and the Mayor present.
It was now after 5 o'clock.
ASSENT ALDERMEN 8INT AFTER.
Several of the Aldermen suggested that I
Mayor write out summonses and put them in I
hands of the police, and order them to bring t
absent Aldermen to the Courxil Board.
It was finally resolved to send the summon?

lursed his aching tooth, varying this, which seer
id to be a painful business, by drawing up
resolution now and then. The other Alderinei

tbout, talking on every conceivable subject ; bi
jot one present had a word to say about th
>bject of the proposed meeting.

At a quarter or 9 o'clock the Mayor returned t

derstantl it, of taking some action in regard t
the city officers, who to-day have had served upo
them orders to vacate. Will some one of th
Aldermen more fully explain the ubject ?
OPEN OR C LOK ED DOORS.
.There was about three miuutes' delay, afte
which Alderman Barrow said: As this is
special meeting called to discuss questions c
vital importance, not only to the Council, but t
the citizens at large, and as everything we say i
debate will, if reported, be subject to the critl
chun ?T every legal mind, and thereby might en
able the opposition to gain some advantage,
move that we sit with closed doors.
Alderman Greene, ls this a caucus or a specia

Alderman Greene. -i don't thiuk there can b
any subject brought forward that we are afrai.
to express our opinions about and let the worh
know them. Aa for myself, I intend to discus;
tue question without fear or favor.
Alderman Collins. The motion or Aldermai
Barrow has not been seconded.
Aldermau Barrow commenced TO speak in sup
port of his motion, saying, that lt "behooved
Council not to let the opposition get hold of any?
thing that they could turn against us." Here,
Alderman Mackey, who had jloubtless instigated
Alderman Barrow u make the motion, inter
mpted him with "I sccoud the motion."
Alderman Collins sahl that the reporters knew
or anticipated what was to br done at the meet?
ing, and, ir a secret session were held, there were
members present who would tell them all about it:
nnd. In Ids opinion, if the members of Council
resolve.) to hold a secret session, they would
thereby resolve to make fools of themselves.
Alderman Voigt said that no one could make
capital out of anything that was said in tho de?
bate, but only of the action or Council; and as
that would ha\e to be known some time or other,
he did not see why it should not be known at
Alderman Collins wanted fo know If the mem?

The vote was then taken, and a majority voted
in favor of open doors.

ABOLITION OF OFFICES.
Alderman Mackey said: I beg leave to offer the
following bill: -To abolish the ?nices of Assessor
and Assistant Assessor, and to create the offices
of Appraiser and Assistant Appraiser;" and I
call for its first reading. ? 4
The bill was then read, and is as follows:
SECTION I. He it ordained by the Mayor and Al?
dermen of Charleston, in City Council assembled,
That the offices of City Assessor and Assistant
City Assessor, be, and the same arc hereby, abol?
SEC. 2. That immediately after the ratification
of this ordinance, the City Council shall elect an
Appraiser and an Assistant Appraiser, who shall
hold their respective offices during the term of
office of the Mayor, nnless sooner removed by a
vote of Council. The City Appraiser shall receive
a salary at the rate of eighteen hundred dollars
($1800) per annum, and the Assistant Cit/ Ap?
praiser shall receive a salary at the rate of twelve
hundred dollars per annum, all payable monthly.
SEC. 3. It shall be the duty of the City Ap?
praiser ami Assistant City Appraiser, at least
once In each and every year to*appraise the
rateable property of the city, ami keep a full

a due return thereof, setting forth the lo?
cation, value and description of all lands and
buildings, liable to taxation, to the Committee on
Assessment of the City Council; who, together
with the City Appraiser and Assistant City Ap?
praiser, shall constitute thc Board of Appraise?
ment and Assessment of the City of Charleston.
And the said City Appraiser and Assistant Ap?
praiser shall, in all respects, be governed by the
provisions of an ordinance entitled "An ordinance
to appraise the rateable property of the City of
Charleston and for other purposes relating there?
to," ratified on the 21st day of September, A. D.
1S?9. And before entering upon the duties of
their respective offices, they shall give bonds, with

are hereby repealed.
Alderman Mackey. I move the second reading
of the bin.
Alderman Voigt. I move that it be read by its
Tliis motion was carried, and the bill received
its second reading.
Alderman Mackey. I move that the rules bc
now suspended, and the bill receive its third
reading by title.
This motion was carried-Alderman Hampton
roting in the negative.
Alderman Hampton stated that lt required a
three-fourths vote of Council to suspend the rules.
Alderman Mackey explained that it took only a
three-fourths vote of the members present at the
meeting, and said: In my judgment, the deci?
sion of Judge Moses ls a blow at the very founda?
tions of our city treasury, and if it be not warded
off, our city government will be given over to the
corrupt jurisdiction which has heretofore marked
lt. It would give us that old system of tyranny
taxation, which exempted the rich and taxed the
poor. We have given a respectful consideration
to the decision of the eminent judge, who lias
been pleased to state that we cannot remove thc
officers who have taken the places of those ousted
by the decision without a hearing; but the deci?
sion does not restrict us from abolishing the
offices. Under this bill, we abolish the offices.
We "do not erect the same offices, for that
would savor of contempt of court," but different
offices, for, under our bill, the Appraiser will not
assess as formerly, but will only do so as a mem?
ber of a board of appraisers. [Alderman Collins
interrupting, 1 am glad that the bill has provided
for adequate salaries.) Yes, a salary is, of
course, an unimportant matter to office-holders,
but lt is the duy of Council not to overlook such
The bid was read.

bill be changed to that of an ordinance, and lt or?
dered to be engrossed for ratification at the next
Alderman Collins moved that lt be ratified at a
special meeting to be held Monday night.
Alderman Voigt move., .hat lt be ratified im?
Alderman Mackey moved that the Connell take
a recess of fifteen minutes; that after the recess
he would have the ordinance rea?y for ratifica?
After some discussion regarding the length of
time of the recess, lt was resolved that five min?
utes was sufficient, and the recess was consider?
ed taken, but the business proceeded.
Alderman Mackey. I beg leave to present the
following charges and specifications against C. X.
Averill, Flour Inspector:

upon the charges preferred against him by Alder?

THE ORDINANCE RATIFIED.
At this stage of the proceedings Alderman

grossment had engrossed thc ordinance, and that
lt was now ready for ratification.
Thc ordinance was then formally ratified.

colored, as Assistant Appraiser.
This nomination was seconded, and thc ballot

APPOINTMENT*OF OFFICERS PRO TEM. .
Mayor. In conrormity willi the resolutions, I
appoint George Addison, City Sheriff pro tem. and
M. Caulfield, Flour Inspector pro tem.
Here some discussion ensued n*rar.ling tb?
bonds or the ousted officers, during which they
circulated among the Aldermen, their race.- if not
their mouths plainly sayiug: ^Won't you go
upon my bond."
Alderman Mackey. I'd state In connection
with thc matter in hand, that I have read the de
cisi?n and find that the judgment operates nega?
tively, not affirmatively: that is, it destroys thc
tenure of office of P. J. Coogan, but lt does not
rON NEWS : MONDAY, OCTO
affirm the right of W. >*. Hughes to the office, or
thc right of any one to the office: consequently,
from the time of thc serving of the order to-day
at one o'clock until just now, the office of As?
sessor has been vacant-a mere waif upon the
sea-a wreck with no one aboard, and ready for
any wrecker that came along. The "eminent"
ihdgc Moses destroyed thc tenure of office, but
wc went a little further and destroyed the office
itself, and thus acted in accordance with the
Judge's decision. Everybody, I promise, will be
pleased when our action is known, and on Mon?
day I expect to see smiling faces everywhere
no scowling faces of Republicans and happy
faces of Democrats; but happy faces of members
of both parties-thc Republicans happy because
the rights which they claimed are asserted, and
the Democrats (who asserted that the Republi?
cans had no man competent to fill the position of
Assessor,) because we have by abolishing the
office^ virtually, in their opinion, admitted thc
truth'of the assertion. [Laughter.]
Alderman Cunningham. I move that as there
is no further business before Council, lt now ad?
Alderman Mackey. Oh, no, not yet. I have one
or two police bills to offer. [Laughter.]
After some quibbling al>oiit the bonds of the offi?
cers just elected or appointed, Alderman Mackey
offered the following resolution, which was
Resolved, That the Mayor be and he is hereby
authorized to approve the bonds of P. J. t'oogari,

praiser; Martin Caulfield, Acting Flour Inspector,

THE STEAMSHIP SEA Grix arrived ot Baltimore
on Saturday at noon. Hereafter, we learn, a
steamship of the Baltimore and Charleston line
will leave both ports every fifth day.
THE FIIIE FRIDAY MORNING.-On Saturday Chief
Engineer Nathan examined several witnesses
with a view of ascertaining the cause of the fire
Friday morning. It has been clearly shown that
lt was the work of an incendiary. The examina?
tion will be resumed to-day.
A MODEL ESTABLISHMENT.-We invite the atten?
tion or the friends of THE NEWS in the city and
throughout the State to the excellent rucilitlcs
which our office enjoys for the prompt execution
of all kinds of Book and Job Printing. Fully pro?
vided with new type and machinery of the latest
and most approved pattern, and having a large
and carefully selected stock of cards, envelopes
and papers of all qualities, THE NEWS Job Office is
now prepared to fill orders for every description
of plain and ornamental printing in the very best
manner, and at rates at least as low as any other
establishment in thc Southern States. Call at
THE NEWS building (up-stairs) and examine our
scale of prices and specimens of our work.
THE FIRE LAST NIGHT.-The alarm of fire last
night was occasioned by the burning or the
house or Mr. Wm. Schneider, on the right hand
side or Meeting street road, going out, ami almost
a mlle rrora Linc street. The Ashley Company,
No. 9, and the Niagara Company, No. 8. both col?
ored, went and drew water rrom an Inlet which
was near the house, bat before their arrival the
fire had gained such headway that nil their efforts
to save the house were futile, and lt and its con?
tents, a small lot of furniture, were destroyed.
The house was unoccupied. Mr. Schneider esti?
mates thc value of the property destroyed at
$1800, on which there ls an insurance of $1000 In
the London and Lancashire Company, represented
here by Mr. A. S. Johnson. The fire was evidently
the work or an Incendiary.
THE STRIKE OP THE LONGSHOREMEN-ALMOST
A RIOT.-The laborers employed by Messrs. Adger
A Co., In the place or the members or the
Union who were discharged ?6 Friday, continue
to work on the wharves, but on Friday night and
on Saturday evening there was a serious expecta?
tion or a riot, growing out or the determlnrition
of the Union not to allow any men to work at less
than Union prices. On Friday night, ?nd also on
Saturday morning, everything passed orr sniootn
ly, but on Saturday evening at least three hun?
dred colored men, with a light fringe of whites,
assembled on the Bay, between the old Postoffice
and Adger's wharf. The workmen on the wharves
were expected to knock off at about 6 o'clock, and
by that hour thc angry excitement or the
colored crowd was showing itself in oaths
and threats directed against the workingmen in
particular, and all whites In general.. A few white
men were standing by the old Postoffice watching
the course of events. This stirred thc bile of the
negroes, who gathered at once around these In?
offensive citizens. Four policemen were on the
spot, but there were no open acts of violence on
the part of the negroes beyond thc throwing or
one brick, and no arrests were made. Encourag.
cd by their apparent security, the negroes dbl all
that negroes could do to bring ou a riot. They
shouted out that "they would drink the blood or
the white men," and that "they were as good as
any white mau" anywhere. Hooting and howling
followed, the negroes evidently trying to forre the
white bystanders to attack them. We are glad
to say that the white citizens conducted them?
selves with a decorum ami moderation worthy or
all praise. They were ready doubtless to assist
the police in preserving order, but they had no
intention of making au onslaught upon a pack ol
poor devils whose bark is worse than their bite.
And yet the provocation was extreme. The ne?
groes were howling and shouting. They bran?
dished their cotton hooks and sharpened their
knives. At last a brick was thrown, knocking the
cigar out nf thc mouth ol OM young man and
striking on the right arm with great force a gen?
tleman who was on his way home. Even this did
not cause the bystanders ti) drive the negro mob
into the water. Soon afterward a detachment ot
police, under Lieutenant Tart, marched on the
ground and cleared tho Bay or the negroes, ii
was then found that most or the laborers had
gone home in surety from the wharves, and the
police returned to the Guardhouse. Later in the
evening the last gaii?:s at work on the wharf went
off without molestation.
Only a word or comment Unnecessary. The
negroes were on the Biug^r the purpose or beat?
ing and bullying the lnrorers who dared ift make
their own terms without regard to the Insoient
dictation of au autocratic Union. The presence
or a large number of our best citizens prevented
the carrying out ol' this intention. Disappointed
and infuriated, in a wild way the negroes did all
they could to provoke aa attack: but the
white people whose object was the preservation of
peace ami iu?t the encouragement ol' disorder,
paid no heed to their insolent chatter. At the
same time we doubt not that a blow or a shower
or brickbats would have brought on a riot that
could not have been quelled until the blood had
been shed of both negroes and Radical whites.
Our people want peace, hut if they are attacked
they will defend themselves in earnest.

St. Thaddeus1 Church, Aiken, S. C.
At a meeting of the Vestry of this Church, held
on Friday. October 8th. the following preamble
and resolutions were unanimously adopted:
Whereas, in the Providence of God, this parish
has been deprived of one of its most valued mem?
bers in the death (not, however, wholly unexpect?
ed,) of the late OTIS J. CHARE; and we, the Ves?
try, desire on behalf of ourselves and the congre?
gation we represent, to put upon record some evi?
dence of grateful esteem-as lt were, to lay upon
his grave a tribute of affectionate remembrance.
A life full of such works a? deserve and com?
mand thc respect and affection of men, has been
fitly closed by such a death as the Christian wish?
es to die-calmly and peaceably falling asleep
upon the bosom or his Saviour, knowing In whom
he had trusted, supported by the presence of a
Heavenly comforter, and firmly persuaded that
He to whom his soul had been entrusted would
keep in safety that which had been committed to
Though in all the relations he occupied, his
death creates a void which seems to ns almost
irreparable, yet we could not wist "him back to
prolong a painful ami hopeless struggle with dis?
ease. We bow in resignation to the will of God.
We thank Him for this, another servant fallen
asleep In "His faith and fears: beseeching Him to
give us grace so to follow lhat good example, that
with him we may be partakers of thc Heavenly
Resolved, That a blank*page of our Minute Book
be Inscribed with the name, day of death and age
of our late brother and vestryman.
Resolved, Thar a copv of these resolutions be
transmitted to thc family of the deceased, with
the expression or our deep sympathy In their
