Congress before the war to have given the South
a Pacific railroad, but the rebellion had inter?

COLOXSXt, December 1.
At 1 o'clock to-day tho special order ol* the
House-to consider the joint resol -n relative to
thc recognition of the Republic Cuba by the
United Slates Government-was called up. El?
liott, colored, Adjutant General ot the State, who
introduced the resolution, bad considerable to
say in regard to it; so did Banaler and other col?
ored men, all taking the ground that thc object
of thc Cuban struggle was to free themselves and
their slaves from bondage. The few white men
who opposed thc adoption of thc resolution took
the ground that it would do no good, as thc Uni?
ted States ofllcluls knew what they were about,
and in due time would do what was best. Finally,
after a long discussion, the resolution was adopt
cd by a vote of seventy-two to twenty-one. The
colored men voted for i: nearly to a man. Of thc
white Radicals who voted against it. 'tom lin son
was the only prominent one. Messrs. F. T. Cly?
burn, J. E. Hagood, John B. Moore, William G.
Stewart, John Wilson and W. w. Waller, Demo?
crats, voted against lt. After its adoption De
Large arose, displayed two boxes of percussion
caps, and offered them as his contribution to the
war material for the impending struggle. The
Speaker snapped him up by several strokes of his
gavel, and DeLarge shot Into his seat.
Thc resolution was sent to the Senate and
taken up about three o'clock. Leslie denounced
It as claptrap, the work of some rascally con?
tractor at the North, and expressed tho opinion
that thc author of lt would be In the State lunatic
asylum in a ; ho t time. W. B. Nash, colored, de?
sired thu United States to get Into a war, and
' di In't care ir lt did whip Spalu or auy oilier

THE CONTESTED ELECTION'.
Thc report of the Committee on Privileges
Elections, in regard to the Abbeville election 1
was submitted in thc Senate, lt was signed
J. J. Wright, colored, II. Huck, (Democrat,)
W. R. Hoyt, lt recited that the committee
given a patient and thorough invcstigatioi
the matter and fourni, from the county canvass
returns;that there were 140S votes cast forC
ncl Cothran and 1403 for L. r. Curtin; that,
cording to the evidence, the polls at Calhot
Mills were not opened until half-past 8 o'cli
when, according to thc law, they should h
been opened at c o'clock; that three yonng r
registered and voted on that day, but it was
opinion of the committee that if these i:
were legally qualified to vote this register
made no difference; that, according to Guff
testimony, a man was illegally appoiu
to take charge of thc polls; that, also, accord
to his testimony and twelve affidavits, which
presented, thirty or forty voters were driven fr
the polls or otherwise pi evented from voting; tl
according to Colonel Cothran's testimony, s
ported by ten affidavits, there wa? no Intimi
tion or any preventing of voters from exercis
thc right of suffrage, and this statement was s
stantlated during the cross-examination or Our
when it was proved that at thc close of thc pi
he saw he was satisfied. The report conclu*
with the expression of thc opinion that If the cc
mittee sat for a month affidavits from both p
tics would bc poured in, and that thc Senate oi
could jndge which of the two should bc seated.
After the reading of the above, Hoyt arose a
requested and obtained leave to introduce an i
dltlonal report, which he wished to bc consul
cd, not as a minority, but as a supplementary
port to the report offered first, as he and Y. J.
Gaven and W. E. Rose, who signed this, cone
red in the first but desired to go a step furth
The report was then read, lt stated that becat
of intimidation, fraud and other irregularities
the polls at Calhoun's Mills there was not a f
expression or opinion, and consequently L.
Curtin received a majority of legal votes, a
recommended that he be declared elected. T
reports were ordered to be printed and made t
special order for to morrow.
TAXES PAST DOB.
A bil! introduced in the Senate in March la
entitled a bill "To define thc manner of collcctii
taxes past due, and for other purposes," recelv
Its second reading to-day, and was ordered I
'thethird under the title "To define thc manner
collecting taxes past due, assessed under Hie la
military and provisional governments of Sou
Carolina." It provides that "all past due and ti
paid taxes, State or County, laid or levied und
or by authority of the late provisional gover
ment, or under or by virtue of military ordei
shall be paid and collected in thc same mann
by the county treasurer, to whom thc tax colic
tors shall turn over all monies, books, tax exec
Hons, and nil other property now in their posse
sion, as provided In thc act entitled "An act
provide for the assessment and taxation of pro
erty, ratified thc 15th of September, lscs."
ANOTHER DIP INTO THE STATE TREAS-KY.
It is queer economy to refuse State aid to ra
roads, and then consider, an the Senate ls no
doing, R. H. Cain's (colored) bill providing ttl!
thc Treasurer of the State be authorized and il
rected to issue to thc Land Commissioner bom
of this State to the amount of one million dollar
with coupons, the same to be used under sue
regulations as may hereafter be prescribed for tl
purchase of lands in this State to be sold fi
homesteads to actual settlers. The bill was set
to the Finance Committee to day. Of course
will be favorably reported upon and passed.
MAGISTRATES, TAKE STARKING.
Thc presentments of several grand Juries, con
plaining of thc loose manner in which magistrate
conduct their business, has caused thc produi
lion of a bill before the Senate, which, lt I
thought, will partially remedy the evil and sav
the State considerable expense, lt provides thu
thc costs which may accrue upon the issuing i
any warrant or proeess for any penal offence les
than felony, shall follow judgment, unless, lu eas
of dismissal of the complaint, for want of jn opc
and sufficient proof, the magistrate having issue
such warrant or process shall be of the opinloi
that thc complaint had good and reasonbl
grounds for Instituting such prosecution, in whlcl
latter case alone shall such costs bc paid out o
the county treasury. In all complaints for ns
sault, assault and battery, in which thc offene;
is not an aggravated one, and lu all case;

The following bill, "to protect from arrest all
officers ol' tho State police for any alleged offence
committed by them while in the discharge or
their duties," has passed its first reading In both
houses, and been referred lo committee to report.
Vi. I*. Nash, colored, is thc author of thc bill. It
will bc observed that, if the bill becomes a law,
thc State constables can do as they please "while
in thc discharge or their duties"-but that is
nothing strange-and if any magistrate issue
a warrant for their arrest lie shall be either im?
prisoned or contribute one or five hundred dol?

Congress having, during its last session, appro?
priated seventy-five thousand dollars for a post?

site for the same shall be given to the United
States, a bill has been introduced in the Senate
" to grant and give thc consent of thc Legislature
of this state to thc conveyance to thc United
States of the lot of land situate at the corner of
Richardson and Laurel streets, for the purpose of

In this conned ion it would bc well to state that
the Chatham Railroad Company has quit its de?

THE SEW YORK TRAGEDY.
The Shooting of R I c h a rd M O n from
McFarland's Point of View-Sad Story
of thc Deserted Husband-Grant Mixed
up with thc Affair.
The Radical papers in New York are ju.st
now wasting a good deal of sympathy upon Rich?
ardson, the victim of the recent shooting affair,
which could better bc bestowed upon thc deserted
husband, now spendlug a very unpleasant lei?
sure In thc Tombs. McFarland bas his story as
well as Richardson,'and If shooting ls to be con?
doned at all in cases of domestic Irregularity, be
should be allowed the benefit of the popular code.
McFarland's story ls truly sad. He had lived
for nine years with lils wife-"nine years of
such happiness !" he says-before Richardson
managed to secure a transferor her affections.
"Wheu 1 lost my property,'1 he says, "a change
came over her." He bore with her indifference
long, never consented to a separation, and Ona]ly
committed tho desperate deed to which his rage
against his enemy drove him. Richardson bes
badly wounded, but comforted by feminine att?n?
uons ami unbounded sympathy; while the hus?
band, whose wife lie has stolen, and whose home
be has broken up, is in jail, execrated as an assas?
sin, and vllliflcd as cruel to his wife, a drunkard
and a spendthrift. McFarland says:
"lt is a sad ending of my Ufe. But they're
married. I have proof of it. I know lt, slr.
c;.I God : ..shat am l lo dof My little boy that I
have with me cries out for his mother every night;
but his mother left me because 1 was poor. Did

woman, highly accomplished and a splendid wri?
ter. Shu writes for ll:-.! Atlantic Monthly and for
Harper's, and >he mingles with all Ute great
authoresses. Von know. Richardson is really III
love with her-Til'.! scoundrel. He'd like-to take
her from me, and live publicly with her. bul hu
dare not. No. sir, nol while I live. Why. ho offer?
ed to marry her, you know, and he published thc
fact in tho Tribune. Ile has bod influence i uough
to keep the casi? oat of all thc papers.
"Von know Crain, and Richardson are very
croat friend.-.; and Crain, I hear, would do any?
thing lor Richardson. Richardson used lo ac?
company (?rant everywhere; ami ho is said to
have great power over tami. A short lime ago
some friends of Richardson called upon nu: and
asked me upon What terms 1 would settle the
case. I told them that I had to take an action
for damages, a? that was thc only remedy left
mo. They said they would insure mo Slu.O?O and
a foreign mission if I would abandon the snit;
bm 1 told them that I wained my wife. 1 sup?
pose they could have persuaded thc President to
give mo a consulship to please Richardson and
lint me out of Hie way."
"What do you think lo l your wife to leave

added with bitter emphasis.) win come out on thc
trial. I don't know what to do about thc matter.
You soe I'm poor; I can't employ detectives to
watch my wire or Richardson, aud I believe lier
lady friends want her io slay with Richardson."

-Giulia Gris!, the once famous vocalist, who
died In Berlin on Monday last, was in this country
Ilftecn or sixteen years ago, where her brilliant
ncco-?plishments made her one of the greatest
favorites on thc lyric stage. Gris! was boru in
Milan, In 1812. and was consequently fifty-seven
years of agc. She made her debut in Bologna, at
the age of seventeen years, and made a great im?
pression by the grace and lovellucssof her person,
her intelligence and fine vocal abilities. Her first
appearance in Paris was In 1832, where she ob?
tained an engagement as prima donna of the
italian opera, through thc influence of Rossini.
Two years afterwards she appeared In London,
and both engagements were brilliant beyond ex?
pectation. Urisi was particularly great in thc
part of Norma, lu thc parts of Semlramldc, Lu
crczia Borgia and Elvira in thc Puritan!, the
latter of which was written for her, she showed
dramatic capacities which made her scarcely less
attractive as au actress than as a singer. Site
came to Anterlea in 1S54, lu company with Mario,
and returned to Europe after spending about a
year in this country, during which she sang in
nearly all the principal cities of the United States.
Remarkable Speech of thc French Em?

on thc Progress of Freedom Through?
out the World.
Til? session ol* tho Senate and Corps L?gis?
latif was reopened on Monday with great cere?
mony by the Emperor, who delivered thc opening
speech from the throne. It was hoped that thc
Kmpress might possibly returu in time to take
part in thc ceremonies, but she had not yet
The Emperor said: "It is not easy to establish
regular and peaceful liberty in France. Fer
months past, society seemed to be menaced by
subversive passions, and freedom compromised
by tlieexcesses of the press and of public assem?
blages. But common sense has already properly
Judged these culpable exaggcratlous which, after
al!, have served but to prove the solidity of the
edillce founded by popular suiriage.^?tut this
uncertainty and trouble must last no longer. Thc
will of the people must bc made known. France
wants liberty with order. Order I answer for;
help me, Messieurs, to secure liberty. Between
those who would change all and those who would
grant nothing, a glorious course may be chosen."
The Emperor then referred to thc Senattts Consul
turn of September last, which he said he had pro?
posed with the purpose of inaugurating a new era
of conciliation and progress. It was the task of
thc Chambers to aid him in carrying out thc
plan. Ho proeeeded to enumerate the municipal
reforms which were to bc made. He pronounced
the situation of thc country satisfactory, and de?
clared that the more he was ready, however, to
grant reforms thc more decided he was to main?
tain the principles of the coustitution. The rela?
tions of France with foreign powers were friendly.
Sovereigns and peoples desired peace. The Em?
peror continued as follows: "Wo have reason to
be proud or our epoch. The New World sup?
presses slavery ; Russia trees the serfs; England
renders justice to Ireland; the Bishops are meet?
ing at Rome for wise and conciliatory purposes;
the progress of science draws nations closer to
each other. While America unites the Atlantic aud
Pacific, everywhere capital and intelligence com?

following words: "Messieurs, you resume your
labors alteran unusual interruption of the ses?
sion. I liopo the boillcs of thc State will apply
loyally thc modification* lately made lu nie Con?
stitution. There Ls to bc a more direct participa

a new force for the Empire. .May tl.e Chambers
prove that, without running into regrettable ex?
cesses, France eau support free Institutions
which honor civilized nations."

Whatever divergence of opinion amy weaken

men who have brought the government into dis?
credit. There ought to be no compromise with
the passive instruments of personal rule. Possi?

power as built on the odds of a hundred to one.
For many years the Opposition in the Chamber
