LoNasaoE.nuEN'S OUTRAGE.-Silas Chappel,
(colored,) sought the protection or the law against
Alex. Farr, and others er the longshoremen, who
threatened his Ufe if he persisted in earning his
bread ba the sweat or his race, except by per?
mission of the "society." Silas took a dur?rent
view or the case, and says he will work for Mr.
Stevedore Townsend if the law will protect him.
A warrant was Issued accordingly.
TUE LONGSHOREMEN'.-The strike alluded to
yesterday was only a faint attempt on the part
ef the longshoremen to dictate to tho business
community. Captain Smith has not discharged
a vessel since the first strike, at whteh time he

unprincipled men who are manipulating the
longshoremen's union, and like others who foist?
ed themselves on the workingmen, wm, If they

the vicinity or Beaufort was sold by the United

Few of the purchasers have paid more than one
instalment, and the lands are reverting to the
government. The Utter refuses to rent, and the
original owners have not been permitted to re?
deem their property.
ANOTHER SPECIMEN OP RADICAL TOLE RANCI.
"We mentioned, in our hut issue, the unjustifiable
conduct of the Harbormaster bi discharging an
.kl and tried employee without warning, and giv?
ing the situation to T. J. Mackey. This action or
the Harbormaster riled the City Fathers, and it
waa represented to Captant Stoddard that T. J.
Mackey must be relieved cr the office would be
abolished. The position was embarrassing, bnt
the ex-Alderman was equal to the eBBjrgency
and tendered his resignation, bottling his wrath
until some future occasion.

THE MASONIC Pant.-A wet, rainy night
kept numbers from attending the Fair, but to?
ward the daw of the evening the weather mode?
rated, and the crowd of visitors was somewhat
increased. Though shorn of some of the orna?
ments, the tables make a good display, and the

A RAME REVIVAL.-The past four years have
not been unmarked In this age of progress, but
lt was a march rrom darkness into light, and we
arenow nearing the perfect day. Then every?
thing was a blank; now aU securities are appre?

THE C BEB AW AMI? DASLIEGTOJ?
The regular annual meeting of thc stock?
holders of this company was .ailed at Cheraw,
on the 16th instant. All thc private stockholders,
with few exceptions, were represented, but, in
consequence of thc absence of B. D. Townsend,
Esq., the president of the Cheraw and Salisbury
Railroad Company, there was no quorum. At
I this meeting the following preamble and r?solu
tions were unanimously adopted:
Whereas, Benjamin I). Townsend, Esq., presi
dent of the Cheraw and Salisbury Railroad Com?
pany, assuming to act under authority of a reso?
lution of the Acting Board of Directors of said
company, did attempt, in August last, to sell, in
one lot, four thousand and thirteen shares of the
capital stock of the Cheraw and Darlington Rail?
road Company, standing in the name nf the Che?
raw and Coalfields Railroad Company, to Mr.
R. R. Bridges, president of the Wilmington and
Weldon Railroad Company, who negotiated
therefor in the name of Messrs. Walter A
Newcomer, of Baltimore, as thc purchasers; and,
whereas, in the opinion of this meeting the
sale of such large number of shares of stock to
any one purchaser Inevitably carries with it the
contro' over this corporation, and places thc af?
fairs of this company and all its future interests
in the hands of said purchaser, and such power
may be used to the injury of this railroad, and
all other railroads connected with this road, as
well as all corporate and private interest in the
States of North and South Carolina involved lu
the lines of railroad from Charleston to Cheraw,
and from Cheraw, as projected, to Salisbury,
Greensboro' or Raleigh, in North Carolina; and,
whereas, thc avowed object of the parties
above-named, in the attempted purchase and In
thc extraordinary legal proceedings instituted by
them, to accomplish the forcible transfer of said
stock on the books of this company, by writ of
mandamus, is, (as stated by the counsel of Wal?
ters and Newcomer in open court,) to enable
them to get.the control of this corporation; and,
whereas, the interests of thc Wilmington and
Weldon and the Wilmington and Manchester
Railroads, for whose benefit the said purchase
was attempted, are naturally and necessarily
rival and antagonistic to the interests and policy
of this company and its connections, and detri?
mental to the Interests and chartered policy of
the States of North and South Carolina, of the
City of Charleston, of the Northeastern Railroad
Company, of the Cheraw and Salisbury Railroad
Company, and of all thc various railroad lines
projected northwardly from Cheraw.
1. Resolved, That in thc opinion of this meeting
the action of the said B. D. Townsend, president,
and those of his board of directors who sustain
him, ls inimical to the interests of this corpora?
tion, the same being calculated to crush forever
its future hopes and prospects.
2. Resolved, That the stockholders of the Che?
raw and Darlington Railroad Company thorough?
ly endorse the action of Henry Mciver, Esq.,
president, and John H. Mciver, Esq., secretary, in
refusing to accede to the unlawful demands of
said Benjamin D. Townsend for the transfer of
said stock to Walters and Newcomer; and tho said
Henry Mciver, president, is hereby advised to ex?
haust all legal remedies by appeal to the courts
of the country, to employ counsel on behalf of
this company, and to usc all proper means in his
power and within reach of this corporation, to
prevent the attempted transfer of said stock In
the manner proposed.
3. Resolved, That the Board of Directors and
Stockholders of the Cheraw and Coalfields Rail?
road, or Cheraw and Salisbury Railroad Cbmpany
be and are hereby requested to rescind said agree?
ment of benjamin D. Townsend with Mr. R. R,
Bridges, S,nd to take such measures as will pre?
vent the ?ale of the said shares in large quantity
to any one purchaser, and prevent the control of
this corporation from passing into the hands of a
4. Resolved, That i copy of these resolutions be
printed ia such newspapers in this State, North
Carolina and Virginia, as thc president of this
company may select.
The following resolutions were also unanimous?
ly agreed to:
1. Resolved, That the failure to have the stock
of the Cheraw and Salisbury Railroad Company
represented at this meeting, whereby a quorum
cannot be had. In the present condition of the
company, with its first mortgage bonds maturing
before the time fixed for the next annual meeting,
is calculated to materially injure the interests of
this company, and such failure can only be justi?
fied by some unavoidable accident.
2. Resolved, That this meeting be adjourned to
meet at Florence on the 23d day of November,
and that the secretary of this meeting be request?
ed to notify the president of the Cheraw and
Salisbury Railroad Company of the time and
place of such adjourned meeting, and request
that he take measures to have the stock owned
by that company represented at such adjourned
meeting. T. E. PENN, Chairman.

CHARLESTON BAB BEACONS.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
The range lights for Charleston bar, which
have boen "proposed for," and will, we presume,
soon be commenced, arc so utterly useless upon
the ranges proposed, that I am laduecd to say a
word about them:
In the first place, the ranges noon which these
lights are proposed to be built arc not correct
in spite of Mr. Donielle's boasted coast pilot
knowledge of Charleston bar and its entrances.
Had Mr. Lou telle or the officer who surveyed and
sounded out this channel known anything of the
business they would have remembered that the
channel by which they now propose to enter
Charleston, (as a main ship bar,) is the very bar that
wau ignominiously stopped up by them In 1861 with
a stone fleet-a shame and disgrace to any nation.
The true entrance to Charleston could have been
shown Mr. Boutelle, hail he applied to those who
do know where thc water la. Our pilota arc an
intelligent set of men and do know their business.
Did Mr. Boutelle bring iu bis monitors and
Ironsides by this bar, which be now proposes to
make the main ship barf No I for he reported
that he had effectually clo-.ied it He knew that
there was another and a better ehannel, aud by
this he brought in bis nee'.
Now he proposes to spend $20.000 on tights,
where, as we cnn prove, they will be a waste of
money-worthless in every respect for the pur
poses for which they arc intended. Thc new cot?
tages by thc sea may suit government favorites
who can enjoy $1000 a year at our expense, Wut
as beacon lights they will bc of no use whatever.
The pilots have nothing to do with, and know
nothing of, this communication. B.
