STNOB OF SOUTH CAROLINA.
The Synod of South Carolina was convened in
the Presbyterian Church in Chester,on the even?
ing of the 20th inst Present, Rev. A. A. Morse,
of Greenwood, S. C., Moderator of last Synod,
and presiding officer of the body until the elec?
tion of his successor; Rev. Wm. Banks, stated
clerk, thirty-six ministers and thirty-five ruling
elders, representing the four Presbyteries,
South Carolina, Harmony, Bethel, and Charles?
ton-this number was subsequently increased
by the arrival of about twenty more delegates
making In all ninety representatives. Besides,
there were eighteen students from the Theo
glcal Seminary at Columbia, and Professor
Charles W. Lane, of Oglethorpe University,
Ga,, Rey. Dr. E. T. Baird, of the Synod of Vir?
ginia, Rev. Messrs. John Douglass, R. Z. John?
ston, R. B. Alexander and J. H. Colton, of the
Synod of North Carolina, and Rev. R. W.
Brice of the Associated Reformed Church, cor?
responding members. Whole number pre?
sent about one hundred and fifteen. The
Chester Reporter says :
Agreeable to custom the Synod was opened by
a sermon from the Rev. A. A. Morse, the retiring
Moderator, ?v?ter which the body proceeded to
the election of a Moderator, which resulted in
the choice of the Rev. D. K. Frlerson, of Harmony
Presbytery. The Rev. J. B. Mack was then elected
temporary clerk, and the Rev. W. A. Gregg as?
At nine o'clock A. M, on Thursday the t tstness
of the body was regularly commenced.
PRESBYTERIAN INSTITUTION'S OP LEARNING.
Drs. Howe and Plumer gave most encouraging
accounts of the floirlshing condition of the Theo?
logical Seminary at Columbia, which, despite the
disasters of war, is fast regalulng its former
prosperous condition; numbering thirty students
at present, with prospects of increase.
J. L. Harris, Esq., commissioner on the part of the
Presbyterian Churches of Atlanta, presented
1 their request that Oglethorpe University, located
near MiUedgevlUe, Ga., and ander the joint con?
trol of the Georgia and South Carolina Synods,
be removed to the City of Atlanta-said ohurches
offering the som of $40,000 to effect such an end.
Much debate arose upon the question, during
which Professor C. W. Lane, of Oglethorpe, de?
livered a most touching and eloquent speech, re?
viewing the past of Oglethorpe, flourishing, hon?
ored, and mach sought after, and picturing her
present, with her halls of learning deserted, her
patrons dead or Impoverished, her officers crip?
pled, and all but helpless. Yet, withal, he was in
opposition to the transfer. The buildings at
Oglethorpe, we understand, cost $60,000. If At?
lanta be very desirous for the university, she
should offer at least $100,000. The whole matter
was finally referred to the Synod of Georgia for
Professor J. M. Anderson, of Davidson College,
made a flattering report of the prospects of that
institution. More than one hundred students are
now within ber walls. Mr. Charles Martin, for?
merly of Cbaiiel Hill, and now of Columbia, Ten?
nessee, has recently been made a professor
THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH.
The church in South Carolina, according to all
accounts, has never had greater reason to feel
hopeful for her future. The rude hand of war
had destroyed in. many places her altars, had
stricken down many who would have proved
themselves faithful soldiers of Christ, and had
left her surviving children in the depths of pov?
erty and ruin, yet in the face of all this she ls
saying, Resurgam. Several new chnrches have
been organized. Three ministers, Rev. Messrs.
T. R. English and W. C. Sutton, of Harmony Pres?
bytery, and Rev. D. Humphreys, of South Caro?
lina Presbytery, have departed tlis life during
the present year. Many young men arc looking
forward to the ministry, of which there arc now
eight licentiates and nineteen candidates.
UOWE]3 HISTORY OF THE CHURCH.
Dr. Howe announced that the History of thc
Presbyterian Church of South Coralina, for which
be hod been collecting material for thc last twen?
ty years, was now ready for publication, but that

On Foreign Missions, Dr. Wilson, secretary of
the Board of Missions, and formerly missionary
to Africa, gave a most interesting statement of
the condition and prospects of the missionary
work, interspersing his remarks with pertinent
anecdotes and illustrations, derived from his own
experience among thc heathen. He was followed
by Rev. J. H. Colton, missionary to thc Choctaw
Indians, from North Carolina, by . >v. E. T.

A. Morse, Rev. J. o. Lindsay, Rev. Dr. Buist, Rev.
Dr. .Heard, Rev. G. W. Boggs, C. W. Laue, Dr.
Flamer and R. H. Reid.
On Saturday evening the Synod adjourned to
meet at Anderson Courthouse, Wednesday, be?
fore the fourth Sunday in October next.
Appointment of ministers was made to thc va?
rious churches, not excepting the African Metho?
dist Church. The well known reputation of Dr.
Glrardeau drew to the Presbyterian Church to
which he hud been assigned a large crowd in the
forenoon, where, as usual, his burning eloquence
and whole-souled earnestness failed not to arouse
all the feeling of his hearers. Owing to a mis?
take there was no service at the Methodist
Church. Rev. J. B. Mack preached to a large
number of colored people at the African Metho?
dist Church in the forenoon, who gave to him thc
greatest attention and were much pleased. In
the forenoon Dr. Glrardeau delivered one of those
irrestitiiy eloquent sermons for which he ls so dis?
tinguished to several hundred colored people
and a large number of white people in tho court?
house. The other churches were filled during the
i At night the venerable Dr. Plumer, the patri?
arch of his church, preached at the Presbyterian
Church, and with all his accustomed force and
seriousness urged upon bis hearers "not to hear
the Gospel in vain."
The deliberations of thc Svnod were conducted
in so Christian-like a spirit, thc Word was preach?
ed with so much eloquence and power, and thc
people all were evidently so fully imbued with
the holy and healthful atmosphere, for thc time
being, sourrounding them, that we hesitate not
to say that it was a good thing for the Synod to
have been here.
FASHIONS FOB GENTLEMEN.
Latest Winter Styles.
The New "York Mail says:
Velvet has become very fashionable for trim
ming almost every style of coat. Especially on
overcoats, whether Chesterfield or frock, siugle or
double-breasted, ithe latter style having thc pre?
ference,) we lind lt very much used. Velvet col?
lars, lappel facings, frequently the whole of the
lappel, the cutf? and edging of velvet to match In
color the shade of the cloth, is the style. For
those, however, who prefer a more durable edge,
a round silk cord is much used, and gives an
equally handsome finish. Treble-milled box
Meltons and kerseymeres in drabs, olive and lead
color, are very fashionable this season for over?
coats, though Elyslun beavers of a soft make, In
plain colors and mixtures, are much worn, and
make a very handsome overcoat.
The Prince Arthur frock coat, so called from its
being the Prince's favorite garment, is gradually
taking the place of the "Princu of Wales" coat
for half-dress, the theatre, informal calls, and all
other occasion when a dress coat is unnecessary
and a business coat ls undesirable. It is made of
a fine castor beaver, black, or blue, or olive in
dark shades, velvet collar to match, the lappels
pointing very much upward, and bound willi a
rich, heavy braid. A line white moleskin or heavy
Marseilles vest, double-breasted, looks very well
with thia coat, and lavender whipcord or ribbed
doeskin trousers. Among those, however, who
affect the English style, a sealskin vest will be an
Indispensable luxury this winter. For business
suits, checked patterns still predominate, and
made up In thc Beaufort coat are very stylish.
The most importaut change lu dress coats ls
that they are made with velvet collars, the lappets
rolling low to the waist seam, and not sllk-faccd,
as formerly. Embroidered vests with Jewelled
buttons find considerable favor among our best
dressed gentlemen, and will doubtless be much
patronized before thc end of the season.
In London several of the leading tailors are In?
troducing velvet suits for evening wear, the coat
lined with White silk, tue trousers being ot vel?
veteen, so that in thc courae.oftlme we mar hope
for something richer, moro elegant, ami* more
consistent with thc magnificent display which
our ladies make than tho sombre black which has
characterized gentlemen's eveniug dress for thc
last quarter of a ecntury.

MR. GRANT TAKEN TO TASK.
Plain 'Talk to Him from Two Leading
Republican Papers-Nepotism and Ap?
pointments te Onice of. Friends te be
Stopped-Strong Opposition Hinted at,
[From Cincinnati Commercial, October 23.]
General Grant seemed to be a necessity to the
Republican party when bc was unanimously
nominated by the representatives of that party
In convention assembled for the Presidency.
He could have got along very well as General
Commanding of the Armies, but the party
could not get along well without him in the
Presidential campaign. Upon becoming Presi?
dent, the General seems to have had a full and
clear appreciation of thu independeuce of his
Sosition. So he made up thc Cabinet, not of
istinguished Republican politicians, but of
his personal friends. They were all rather Re?
publicans than otherwise, but the Cabiuet was
fearfully and wonderfully made. The charge
has been made that Cabinet appoint?
ments occurred because the gentlemen ap?
pointed had made presents to General Grant.
We do not believe those Dresents had any
influence with the President. They ought to
have bad au Influence, and it should have pre?
vented the appointments. It happened that
several among thc valued personal friends of
the President gave him money, and that he,
careless and indifferent as to that, placed them
high iff office. Not only in regard to his Cabi?
net, but throughout the country, the President
displayed the vividness of lils remembrance and
the keenness of his gratitude to bis personal
friends. When we come to count up the rela?
tives he has appointed to office, they are not
very numerous. But he lias appointed person?
al friends and the friends ot friends and the
favorites of relatives to a degree that ls not
credible to his sagacity as a man of the people.
In bis announcement that he did not intend
to have a policy in conflict with the will of the
people he seems to have been entirely sincere.
His conduct in office has glveu testimony to
the strongest kind- to that effect. Whatever
may have been bis shortcomings, he has not
been burdened with a policy. So easy ls he on
the duties of lils office that he has abundant
leisuro, which he spends at the seashore and on
SOME PLAIN TALK.
Somo matters, however, seem to demand thc
serious attention of the President. He nos
just received a loud warning of the perils hy
friends-the dangers of family influences-and
the exceeding great hazard of familiarity with
New York sharpers.
In this part of the country the Influence of j
thc President's father lias been absurd and In?
jurious. In New York we find a Mr. Corbin,
known long ago in the Washington lobby and
In Wall street as a shrewd and unscrupulous
operator, who, a few months space, assumed
the position or brother-in-law of the President,
and began presently to speculate In that rola- i
tionsblp. lt was his stock in trade. It gave '
him familiarity with Gould and Fisk, the most
notorious of the Wall street gamblers. He as?
sumed to be able to control appointments in
New York. There is too much reason to be?
lieve that he did control some of them-per.
haps that of General Butterlleld among ot hers
When tho President passed through New
York, as he was in the habit of doing on his
excursions, he was the guest of his brother-in
law; and this was entirely natural and proper, I
for Mrs. Corbin is his sister, who ls most like
bim. and who hos more Influence over him
'than any other member of bis family. Tills
was Covington gossip before she was married,
and her influence was felt here in Important
appointments previous to thal event.
PLOUUHIN'U WITH A H KIF Kit.
Failing to get his brother-in-law committed
in a Wall street speculation, Corbin's next pro-,
ceedlng would? of course, be to influence .Mrs.
Grant to allow him to make a little money tor
her. If thc President and his wife dabbled u
little In stocks and gold at thc suggestion and
uuder the direction of their brother-in-law
with a brown stone front residence, evidently
tliey were presently apprised that the transuc
i iou was not so distinguished by Innocence as
lt had boen represented to them by their bril?
liant and persuasive relative.
SUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES. _
Messengers lo Washington, Pennsylvania,
and arguments by Jay Goiild, and inquiries by
Jim Fisk, meuut something more than any as?
sociation of thc President and his family in
Wall street speculations, and wasasimple,ordi
nary business affair. If thc President was in,
lie took cure to get out, and lt ls quite possible
that thc consciousness that there had been an
elaborate effort to use him hod its influence in
causing the peremptory order that he gave,
as he says in the Bonner letter, for the sale of
ANb no CT WE LL TOO.
While the bulls were at work with the Presi?
dent, thc bears seem lo have had thu Secre?
tary of the Treasury in hand, and gave him a
fine dinner with ihe view of plying him with
overwhelming arguments why" he should sell I
gold and crush out the rascals. These were re-1
formers in tho same sense that the late nv
formers in Hamilton County were- so. They
were quite as wicked as Fisk and Gould, Cor?
bin or Butterlleld. They were in another ring,
that was all. The game wus to steal as bears
instead of as bulls.
Now we hope that In a 1 this the President will
learn one useful lesson. It ls In brief: that not
cnly is personal government played out in
monarchies, but that fuinily influence will not
serve any good purpose with a Chief Magis?
trate; that In this position all families of hon?
est people must be on thu same footing; that
the Grants are not in the least better than
other folks because he ls President, but are
rather to bc discriminated against; that his
personal friends must be Judged by their tlt
ness rather than their friendship. If he can
learn this lesson speedily, and give evidence
of Iiis increase of knowledge, the people will
be swift to forgive the errors already commit?
ted; but if he remains in this particular a dull
scholar, the degree of popular impatience that
he must encounter may at least surprise him a
Thc Case of General Butterlleld-Grant's
Reputation Involved in tho Matter
A Limit to thc Patience of thc People.
[From the Evening Post, October 20.]
General Butterfield may ask to bc court
martialled, and the President may, if lie likes,
grant Iiis request. But in the meantime But?
terfield ought at once to resign the place of
Sub-Treasurer; and if he does not the Presi?
dent ought to suspend lum. General Butter?
field demands; to be tried by a military court;
who is to prefer charges against him ? The
President of thc Uuitcd Suites? But if the
President formally charges him with mulfcus
ance in office is he not bound to suspend him
lroin office until the charges are disproved ?
Thc expedient Of a trial by court-martial
looks suspicious to the public and is ir?
regular, and smacks too much of mili?
tary despotism to be relished by a free
people. The civil oflicers of a free State
ought not to be able tims to protect themselves
behind a court of military oflicers; it is a bad
precedent which General Butterfield seeks to
set: one which may lead in time to thc gravest
and most dangerous abuses. The President
should be told by his friends that he ought not
to cause a public scandal by retaining General
Butterfield in thc place which he ladds. The
appointment of military officers to purely civil
service is in itself a praiseworthy custom.
There was a general impression that, on ac?
cepting the ?ub-treasurershlp, Butterfield had
resigned his place iu the army. Certainly he
ought to have done so; and if any one hail as?
serted, when General Butterfield took charge
ol' the treasury, that he would, when charged
with misconduct, seek refuge in a military
court, tlie public would have been in?
dignant. Tim President has been mis?
led into making some poor appointments;
such as thal of General Sickles to Spain,
that of Mr. Washburne to France, and now
this of General Butterfield. He lias so firm a
hold of the public confidence that the people
have been willing to overlook such mistakes;
but they have not forgotten them ; and it ls
not prudent in the President to put too greata
strain upon the people's belief in him. To ap?
point an unfit man to place is what probably
every Presid? nt may t.o, and is excusable.
But to keep a m ?n in place aller his unfitness
has become a matter ol' public notoriety is
more than any w s ! President will venture on.
We trust, therefore, that tho repoit is true
which comes tu us from Wasliington, that the
administration is now deliberating upo f a flt
person to relieve Geccral Butterfield, it need
not deliberate long ; it can choose irom seve?
ral eminent citizens o? the necessaiy business

FLORENCE, S. C., October 29.
For the first time in many months our town
has again been the scene of conflagration. At
the lower end ol' Front street there are a num?
ber of little rough houses, most of them occu?
pied as stores by colored merchants. Last
night a fire was discovered amongst them,
and before anything could be done to arrest
the flames two or three of these active little
business establishments were destroyed. But
for the arrival and efficient service of the
"Florence," our fire engine, the whole of that
part of oar town would nave been reduced to
ashes. The main snfferers, I learn, are Wes.
Williams and John Edwards, both colored
merchants. So far as known thc fire was ac?
cidental. No insurance.
At the Baptist Church, conducted by the Rev.
J. O. B. Dargan, assisted by Rev. Mr. Menden

for several days a series of Interesting meetings,
attended with hopeful and encouraging re?

James Fisk, Jr.'s, Compliment? to Presi?
dent Grant-He Speaks his Mind
A Washington dispatch, published in one of
the New York papers, quoting President
Grant as having spoken In very contemptuous
terms of Fisk, Jr., brings out the cheeky
Prince ol Erle In the following characteristic
communication : ,
TO TUE EDITOR OF THE WORLD.
SIR-In the Washington correspondence of the
Herald this morning, I read the following para?
"In the course of conversation yo? r correspon?
dent remarked upon the bold attemjtt ot Mr. Flak
to ubtain from the President advune* Information
regarding the financial policy of thejgovernment.
The President's reply waa substantially as follows:
" ' I don't know but 1 should haveSelt insulted
by such a proposal had it come from any other
but a person like Fisk. But coming, from a man
so destitute of moral character, 1 didn't think it
worth noticing.' "
My first feeling on reading this was naturally
one of indignation, that a gentleman occupying
(he highest station in thc land should use such
language concerning one with whom he
had maintained friendly relations.' and from
whom he had received nothing but acts of kind?
But, after a moment's reflection, I felt that I
was mistaken In attaching tho least importance
to.this statement. It ls obviously a nure inven?
tion of the venerable Scot who presides over the
Herald. It Is simply impossible that the President
can have used any such language about mc. Gen?
eral (?rant never would have accepted the hospi?
tality and shared the table of a mun whom he be?
lieved to be so destitute of moral character os
this variant pretends.
General Grunt spent three hours at my table on
one occasion, and made the entire Journey to
Boston in my company, as is well known to
many gentlemen who were with us, and who
know that our relations were of the most friend?
ly character. Ile and lils family have repeated?
ly accepted trlfliug favors at my hands, of such
a nature as are perfectly proper among friends
(and which 1 mention now with no intention of
Implying that they have placed General Grant un?
der any obligation,) but which no gentleman
would accept from one whom he did not consider
a friend, indeed, so perfectly easy have been
thc relations between us, that General Grant has
always dispensed with those little formalities of
acknowledgment which other gentlemen, equally
eminent, but less Intimate with me^Jatve thought
it necessary to observe (not ,even inanjxnQ nie firr
Vient,) and ihe Humorous little service? which lt
hu* been my pleasure to render him have been
treated on both sides.as a matter of course, Just
us they should be between friends imito at ease
with each other.
On the very occasion on which this Herald in?
ventor pretends that General Grant got so In?
sulted, our conversation was most agreeable and
lasted nearly an hourj
Having thus shown the absurdity of the Herald
story, it is not necessary that it should receive
any further ru>tice. General Grant cannot bc ex?
pected to publish a disavowal of all language that
sensational reporters may put in bk) mouth ; and
as he has never contradicted one of my state?
ments hitherto. I shall not tronble him to confirm
this in detail, though he will undoubtedly do so,
if called upon.

took out thc General's horses as lie was return?
ing home, and drew him to his hotel. "You
must have been very much pleased," replied a
a friend some time afterward. "Very much
pleased, indeed," replied Lnyayette; "but I
never saw anything more of my horses."
THE GREAT ROSTON LOTTERT.
A Neat Swindle-Thc Ulan who Drew
Ute Coliseum Pays only Sixteen Cents
for Uta Ticket.
A Boston dispatch of Monday, to the New
York Tribune, suys :
The man who drew the Coliseum has ob?
tained a sudden notoriety which will probably
be as brief as it is Intense, though it may In?
crease his trade by advertising his wares. All
through Saturday* afternoon and Sunday thu
people were in a feverish state of anxiety to
know thu nain? of thu fortunate man; and now
that lt has been ascertained that his name is J.
L. Maguire, and that he Is a "lumber dealer."
thu inattur has a suspicious look. An investi
galion showed, and it is publicly announced,
that he, with others, entered Into an arrange?
ment with thu Coliseum Association lo pur?
chase, on Saturday morning, all of thu tickets'
which had not brun sold i:t (hat time, lt ls
said that bc paid sixteen cents apiece l'or thu
tickets, purchasing for that sum ahouL live
thousand, while thousands of people had paid
one dollar apiece for all thal had buen sold pre?
vious to that Ume. It ls said that "other par?
ties" who were in partnership with Mr. Ma?
guire will have their share of thu 115,000, lor
Which thc lumber will sell, if taken by thu
builders; but as Mr. M. is a lumber dealer, hu
will probably dispose of the component parts
of the structure to much better advantage in
his own lumber yard. Hiic?i indignation h
expressed among Hie disappointed licke:
holders, who arc convorsanl with the iac:s,
and a management, which would sell one ?c'iut
for on? dollar and another for sixteen cunts is
denounced in unmeasured tunas.
A? it was drawn by a lumber dealer, or by a
ring In which a lumber dealer is the central
figure, thu public mind is unanimous in con
s'derlng the whole lottery a "put np Job." Not
many people will go for the lesser prizes, which
consist of small pieces of decoration, settees
and chairs. Visitors during the Jubilee will
remember the wooden chairs and wooden set?
tees which had been improvised for the occa?
sion, and which are worth Just their weight in
kindling wood, as no one wants a souvenir of
a Jubilee whose last chapter has been an igno?
minious lottery. It is just as well that Mr. P.
8. Gilmore is in Europe at this time, as the
projector of what some of tho Boston papers
slopplngly called "The Eighth Wonder of the
World, would not be such a tremendous hero
as he was In June. Ii the Jubilee was the
eighth wonder, the great lottery may probably
be called "The Ninth Wonder of the World."
