COLUMBIA, December 21.
In the House the bills to render better pro?
tection to migratory fish; to amend the law m re?
lation to licenses; to require the registration of
apothecaries, and to regulate the vending of
drugs and poisons, received their second reading,
The-bills to give equal rights before law to all
colors, and to consent to the sale of certain lands
to the United States, received their first reading.
The bills to extend the limits of Columbia, and
to incorporate the Sumter Manufacturing Com?
pany, were passed and sent to the Senate.
iMthe Senate but little was done. The friends
of the bill repealing the Township act filibustered
and succeeded in staving off action.
Corbin was cocked and primed with a big
speech on the phospha'e monopoly bill, bat no op?
portunity was allowed to get lt off. Cain made
a long speech In favor of postponing it, and noth?
ing now can be done with it until after the recess.
A very poor prospect exists of its passage even
then, though a number of Charlestonians are
here to fight both for and against the bill.
In the joint assembly of the Legislature, Bosc
mon, colored, from Charleston, Senator Nash,
colored, and Henry Sparnick, were elected re?
gents of the State Lunatic Asylum. Six were to
have been elected, and Elliott appealed from the
decision of Corbin, and the assembly was dissolv?
ed amid confusion.

[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
COLUMBIA, Dcvmber 20.
In the Senate to-day a message from the
" House insisting that the "Honorable Senate" con?
cur in the resolution of the House appointing the
- proxies to represent the interest of thc State in
the Spartanburg and Union Railroad, was taken
up. Leslie, after some remarks in regard to the
rights of each body and the plan of the House to
assume more of them than seemed just, moved to
refer the whole matter to the Railroad Committee.
There was some slight demur to this motion, and
Leslie proceeded to explain his reasons for
maxing the motion. He said, substantially,
that the appointment of proxies year af?
ter year was a mere farce; the Spartan?
burg and Union Railroad was now broken
up, -and had been virtually so for some time
past; (also the Laurens Railroad;) the cou?
pons of the road were now floating about New
York and the holders asking for payment, but
they received lt not; the State would or could
not pay, and such a state of things was bringing
the State lute contempt; lt were better that the
airain of the road be wound up at once. He was
m favor of the Railroad Committees of each body
being appointed a Joint committee to investigate
the affairs of the road, and report what action was
necessary. After some slight discussion the Sen
ate Railroad Committee waa appointed a commit
tee of conference to meet the Railroad Committee
from the House.
Soon after the House was called to order a con
ourrent resolution was introduced and passed,
prevldjBg that the clerks or that body and of the
Senate be instructed to issue at once pay certid
catos to members for their per diem from the 23d
of November, 1M9, to January 5,1670. When the
resolution came before the Senate, Corbin at once
moved to strike out the words "January 5,1870,
and insert In lieu thereof "December 23,1869."
After a little filibustering, a motion to refer the
resolution to the Finance Committee was made,
whereupon Jllison and Cain added "with instruc?
tions to report in five minutes.M Tue last motion
waa lost and Corbin's tarried. Shortly after this
a message came from the House stating that it
refused to cone* m the amendment, insisted
upon the adoption of the resolution, and request?
ed a committee of conference. Corbin, Jillson
and Cain were appointed on the part of the Sen
ate, and met the House committee, when it was
determined to receive the per diem during thc
Last year it was resolved not to receive the per
diem during the recess, and resolutions offered
afterward to rescind that resolution were re?
jected. But such virtuous resolutions could not
last. This year the members not only receive pay
for doug nothing during a recess, but draw lt
in advance, doubtless fearing that u* they de?
layed that delightful operation, some economical
ones would, after the recess, attempt measures to
prevent them from dipping their hands into the
treasury without showing good "cause why,"
which they could not do. They will have recess
from the 23d of this to the 6th of next month,
thirteen days. The pay of one hundred and fifty
senators and representatives ror thirteen days, at
six dollars per day,will amount to the respectable
Sum Of ELEVEN THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED DOL
The House bill to change the location of the
county seat of Barnwell County back from Black
ville to Barnwell Courthouse was taken up In the
Senate to-day and referred to the Judiciary Com?
mittee. Leslie favored Its being so referred, and
said substantially that no matter where the
county seat was located, there wonld be a great
many persons la the county dissatisfied. One
hair of the voting population of thc county lived
along the railroad, and to these Blackville was
the most convenient. The rault was that the
county, like Beautort, was too large, aud the
only plan to remedy the evil was that favored by
some of the best minds or the State-to bunch the
tier or counties from Beaufort to Abbeville-Beau?
fort, Colleton, Barnwell, Orungeburg, 4c, and
cut two or three new counties out of them. By
that means courthouses could be located in the
counties of Barnwell and Bcaufor:. which would
be easily accessible to all thc Inhabitants, which
could not be done now because or the size or the
counties. He hoped the Judiciary Committee
would report a bill or some measure which would
settle the BarnweU Coe? thouse question satlsfac
In the Senate to-day the bill " to regulate the
assessment of taxation o? personal property in
the City of Charleston" was taken up for the third
reading, when the seventh section (which pro?
vides that " the City Council be authorized to re?
quire the payment of such sum or sums of money,
farllo&se or licenses, as in their judgment be
Just and wise, by any person or persons engaged,
or ?vtead?ig te be engaged, in any calling, busi
ness or profession, in whole or in part, witl

gaged in the calling or profession of teact
public and private schools, and minist

to attach the following amendment t
section, after thc word gospel, "Pr?
no distinction be made in regard to
or color." Hay ne explained that he was ii
ed that the City Council had no power to
or withhold a license to any one, whethe
person had made a distinction in regard to r
color or not, and the object of the amendmei
to give that body the power they claimet
lacked. When the question adopting the a:
ment wes put Hayne only voted for, and
against it. The Speaker then announced th
body generally must vote, whereupon Ii
CorbiL and Jillson voted for and none again
Corbin's bill to amend '.he township ac
taken up in the Senate to-day, and after
opposition several sections were read. The
tors seem disposed to make a law of the 1
bill providing for the repealing of the tow
act, which has already received its second
lng. Corbin will fight it very hard, but it I
probable that he will succeed in his deslg
keep alive the township system in South
THE TAX LEVY.
The joint resolution directing the State Ac
and county commissioners to levy certain t
received its second reading in the Senate tc
after being amended so as to read that the
Auditor be required to levy a tax of one hi
one per cent, on all taxable property in the S
to meet appropriations for the fiscal year
And the county commissioners to levy a ta:
exceeding three mills on thc dollar on all the
able property in their respective counties, ex
ing in the following named: Plckens, seven r
Beaufort, five mills; Georgetown and Marlb
four mills; Marion, five mills.
Leslie desired to know of the senator ;
Plckens (a Democrat) what was the reason of
county having such an excessive levy ; he the
it strange that a Democrat, a representatit
the party whic1. was always crying ont ag?
the Radical pai ly for excessive taxation, sh
now demand a aeavy tax. Ralney wanted ii
pressly understood that it was a Democratic
ator who called for the heavy tax; so that ic
next election it could not be said the Republ
party did it, and it could not be used as a cm
to beat out their brains with. Anyhow, the
publican party would win.
From the recent proceedings relative to
phosphate monopoly bill, it was generally <
posed that all the opposition to the bill was ki
on", but it seems not. To-day, when there wi
lull in thc business of the Senate, Hayne m
duced the fellowing r?solution, which eifectet
mach surprise among a few as did a "quar
master's bursting shell" in bellum bursting I
commissary and quartermaster's camp,
resolution, which was ordered for consid?rai
to morrow, ls as follows:

17B LABOR QUESTION.
The House bill to provide for the better prot
tion of laborers and the appointment of a co
missioner of contracts in each ccanty, the poii
of which were published in THE NEWS of yest
day, was taken np in the House to-day. After et

TAKING A STAND.
The bill of James M. Allen, for putting np t
Speaker's stand In the House, Axing the chant
lier and doing other work about the plat
amounting ra all to about $1600, was brought
ta the House again to-day. There were numtx
less "dilatory motions." Some wanted to p
bim (800, others $1000, others $1200, and so o
Finally the subject was laid on the table, ai
Allen granted time to withdraw his bill. In
few moments, therefore, he sent in a messag
which was read, stating that as he could not g
paid for his work, he would ask leave to take tl
Speaker's stand down during the recess. Th
raised a storm of indignation. DcLarge, Elllo
and Ransier denounced the message as an i;
snit to the House. After the storm subside
the message was laid on the table. The entii
discussion relative to the bill and message o
cupied almost two hours.
The Senate Judiciary Committee, to whom wi
referred the letter of Judge Carpenter, reqnestln
an Investigation into bis official conduct, hav
not yet reported. It ls understood that thc pa:
ties who denounced him so bitterly have decline
to prefer any charges. I learn that since Judg
Carpenter entered upon the discharge of th
duties of his circuit, the flrst of January last, h
has disposed of three thousand civil and nia
hundred criminal cases.
In the House, to-day, Hayne introduced a resc
lutlon requesting the appointment of a spccla
committee to investigate and report the ofllcia
conduct of Judge Rntland. Whipper desired tha
the resolution should be referred to the Judlclar,
Committee. Elliott favored the appointment?
the special committee, saying that there was am
pie evidence to Impeach the Judge. DeLarg
was inclined "to let the poor old man alone," bu
there w as another Judge, of whose Impeachmen
there was considerable talk, who might be im
peached. The resolution was finally referred ti
the Judiciary Committee. There is consideraba
feeling against Judge Rutland, and it ls mon
than probable that he will be impeached.
THE LAND COMMISSION.
Brodie, colored, to day in the House, gave no
tice that he would introduce at an early day a
bill to repeal the act appointing the land com
missioner. For some time past there has been a
movement on foot among the Representatives tc
remove thc land commissioner and abolish hi;
ofllcc. This movement, however, supported bj
the House, will be frowned n by the Senate
so it is not at all probable ti our people will
hear of the "Senator from Darn .ell'' being lefi

bill, to which C replied by asking what was his.

[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
WASHINGTON, Deccmi>cr 19.
So much has been said in the Radical prints
since the meeting or Congress or the "dull har?
mony'' o.r things political, and the peace on earth
that was to be illustrated In the lying down
or the lamb with the lion at this session, that thc
spirit or vindictiveness and persecution, which
the Senate has just exhibited towards the State
of Georgia, was not wholly expected, even by
those who do not generally place their faith In
Radical promises. That the Senate or the United
States, on the eve or a long session, should re?
solve itseir into a protracted session or thirteen
hours, to wear out, by physical exhaustion, the
minority or nine Democratic senators, is a com?
ment tn itseir, and carries one tack to the days
when it was forced to remain on guard to keep
up its unconstitutional warfare on Andrew John?
son. lt was not content to reaffirm Hie method
or ltsowu reconstruction or Georgia, but went so
far as to exact new conditions in coercing ita
Legislature into the ratification of the Fifteenth
amendment, before readmitting the state to rep
sentutlon in Congress. It was not even content
to await the action of the Georgia Legislature in
January, or to postpone thc bill after thc holiday
recess, as was thc understanding in Congress;
but has rushed it through thc Senate, and, I
doubt not, ere this letter reaches you, will
push lt through Hie House under thc gag
and rule of the previous question. In the vigor?
ous speech of Senator Sainsbury.made on Friday,
in which he gave a pointed illustration of the
Radical legislation that one day reorganized
Georgia In the Union and thc next day declared it
out of thc Union-he summed up the bent or this
Radical intent: "Slr," said he, with vehemence,
..this is what has been done in my humble judg?
ment : the necessity in the estimation of gentle?
men-of course 1 do not say in the Senate Cham?
ber, but of some gentlemen in the country-that
the Republican party as a parly should bc perma?
nently seated in the places ol'power; and that
they may bc so it becomes necessary to lake away
from the people of these States thc power to con?
trol their own political government, to legislate
for themselves within the limitations of the Con?
stitution of thc United S:ateu; and it becomes
necessary that legislators selected from different
portions or thc country should mould and shape
aud form and establish Hie governments in those
State?, uot that tue constitution of the country
may bc preserved, nea that the rights of the peo?
ple may be respected, ?tot that peuce and good or
der should everywhere prevail, but that the Re?
publican party shall continue In power not only
for eight years longer, but for all time to come."
Mr. Saulsbnry made sore home thrusts with
the facts In this Georgia case. He stated the sit?
uation plainly when lie said that after the Legis?
lature was organized it was decided by a majori?
ty that, under the Constitution of Georgia, thc
Fourteenth amendment did not touch the ques?
tion of thc power to hold oltlce, did not confer it
on the negro race-negroes were not eligible to
hold ofllceln Georgia, although they had the right
to vote. But it appears by the records of the Leg?
islature that when they made that decision they
passed a resolution declaring that a case should
be made for the decision of thc highest legal tri?
bunal of Georgia in respect to that very matter,
and expressed as a body their belief that the peo?
ple of Georgia would willingly submit to that de?
cision; and this resolution Governor Bullock
vetoed ! "Kow, slr," said the Delaware senator,
addressing the Vtce-Presldent, "does that mani?
fest any disposition on the part of the Legislature
of Georgia to do otherwise than according to
law, and according to law as expounded by the
legal tribunal over which Judge Brown, whose
loyalty you, sir, and the members of this Senate
who act politically with you,- will not question,
presides f Did he not seize apon Fort Pulaski, or
order lt to be done ? Did he not assent to all the
acts of the Confederacy during the progress of
the Avar ? But has he not voted the Republican
ticket ever since, and was he not a member of
thc Chicago Convention ? Can you question his
loyalty ? And yet the Legislature of Georgia ts
willing to submit thc decision of this question to
the court over which such a man, renowned
through the whole course of his life for disinter?
ested loyalty, presides I"
These remarks, which 1 take from the verbatim
report, were keenly relished by overflowing gal?
leries of spectators, and caused a good deal of
cringing on the Radical ?ldc of the Senate. It is
a matter of regret that the Imperfect telegraphic
digests of tills great debate prevents it from
being as widely circulated os it ought to be.
The holiday recess bas virtually commenced,
and there will bc no legislation of importance till
thc second week In January. The tarin* and tax
bills, the financial measures, the appropriation
bills, Ac, are all laid over till then, lt is difficult
to anticipate what will be done on thc most im?
portant matter before Congress-the financial
question. The session thus far has only indicated
one fact-that the House is opposed lo an inila>
tion of the currency, unless it takes the shape of
substituting an lssne of legal tenders for thc
three per cent, certificates held by the National
banks now as a part of the reserve fund.
In the way of Sontbcrn matters but little has
been done. In the Senate the resolutions adopt?
ed by the Board of Trade of Norfolk have been
presented in favor of thc plans of the Mediter?
ranean and Oriental Steam Navigation Company
of New York in establishing their line of Ameri?
can steamships from the ports of Norfolk, Port
Royal, Brunswick and other Southern ports, and
approving of the passage ol the bill presented to
Congress In relation thereto; which were referred
to thc Committee on Postoftlces and Post Roads,
and ordered to be printed. As this linc demands
no subsidy but the ocean postage*, which thc
President, thc Postmaster-General and other
officials recommend be given to some line, this
. bill will probably pass. It is endorsed by all
commercial exchanges, North and South. The
company, If they are fully incorporated as
they desire to be, will have a portion of their line
start from Charleston, S. C.

TUE SUEZ CANAL.
Indian Cotton by the New Transit to
Europe-A Coming Revolution in the
Messrs. Ellison A Haywood, of Liverpool, in
their last commercial circular, make the follow?
ing remarks as to shipments af Indian cotton
coming by way ol' Ute Suez Canal:
Just now American cotton is relatively dearer
than Surats, the margin between middling up?
land and fair Dhollerah being about three pence
per pound. Two mouths hence we should not be
surprised to see this margin reduced to two pence
or less, either by a fall in American or a rise in
Dhollerah, or a combination of both movements.
Early in the new year good Surats will become
very scarce. The stock may be replenished via
Suez; but it would be a mistake to look for much
assistance in '.his direction, fur it is obvious from
the latest advices that some time must elapse be?
fore tho canal eau be in fair working order. Our
Impression is that loo much importance has
beeuaitached to the probable infiuence of the new
route upon the movements of the luellan crop.
Supposing the most sanguine expectations of M.
de Lesseps, as in Hie engineering success of his
enterprise, to be realized, lt does not follow that
Hie canal will bc extremely used by shippers of
Indian produce. Everything will depend upon
the state or the markets. Hitherto the bulk of
the Indian crop has arrived here in the autumn,
when the supply or American ls running down:
but ir Shipped via Suez lt would arrive here in thu
spline and early Bummer, when the supply of
American ls large, ls it reasonable to suppose
that merchants will hurry their cotton forward
by an expensive route to meet the competition or
the cream or the American crop- Il the supply or
the American is small and prices are thereby en?
hanced, no doubt the canal Will be freely used,
supposing lt to be in working order; but" il the
supply of American is large and prices are there?
by depressed, the bulk or the Bombay crop will
he detained in india unlil late in the seasou, or
sent via the cape, so as to arrive here when the
?-toe? of American is approaching its minimum.
Buyers or Surats to arrive are ruled by the same
considerations as guide the shippers, hence thc
bulk ol the forward contra?is entered imo in the
course of thc past mouth has been ror conon to
be shipped via the cane. Much of the colton sohl
to arrive is sold before it is shipped, and ir mer?
chants find it less easy to sell via Suez than by?
way of the cape, they will sell by the latter route",
ami telegraph shippings accordingly. Prices will
fluctuate according to circumstances. In Atneri
can cotton sometimes distant parcels are higher
priced than near ones, and sometimes near cot?

are many ailments, trying in their natnre, bat
the symptoms of which are not sufficiently speci?
fic to enable physicians to classify them under
any particular head. As a general rule they arise
from a general debility of the whole organizat ion,
but their primary cause, in at least three cases
out of five, ls a lack of brisk vital action In the
stomach and liver. Stimulate and tone the relax?
ed digestive and secretive organs, and bodily
case, health and vigor will follow the treatment.
Among all the medicines which have been re?
commended as conducive to this end, none has
been administered with such uniform and entire
success as nOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS.
Its Ingredients were selected from the vegetable
kingdom, originally, with a view to the Invigora?
tion of the phlslque and the constitution, andi
also ror their anti-bilious and slightly laxative
properties. Twenty odd years ot experience has
proved that these herbal restoratives were wisely
chosen and have been Judiciously apportioned in
this celebrated preparation. Not only as a speci?
fic for indigestion and all kindred complaints, but
as a household remedy for all the minor ailments
