COLUMBIA, January ".
In thc House to-day, DcLargc gave notice
of a bill-which, by unanimous consent, received
its first reading-to extend the limits of thc City
of Charleston, and to provide for the election of
municipal officers therein. The bill proposes to
extend the city Hm its to the Six-mile house and
to thc Goose Creek rarish line, which, it is
calculated, will bring in a large majority
of Republican voters. It also provides for a city
election when the general election occurs next
October. It is alleged that the object of the sup
^portcrsof the bill is to get rid o? thc present
Mayor and Aldermen. They urge that by a
change they may get better officials, but cannot
get worse. The bill will pass with hardly a dis?
senting vote, and will receive its second reading
The members or thc Legislature express un?
qualified disapproval of the new license bill pass?
ed by Council. They say that it is unrepublican
in spirit, placing a monopoly in thc hands of thc
rich, because the poor cannot afford to take out
licenses. It ls further objected, that lawyers
living out of Charleston can go there to practice
and pay no tp.x, while those who live there have
to pay it. But the chief cause of disgust with Coun?
cil is because it refused to allow colored people
^jual rights at places of amusement and else?

gational Church of Charleston; by George Lee,

[FROM OUB OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
COLUMBIA, January o.
Wright to-day introduced in thc Senate a
petition of several citizens of Beaufort County,
requesting that the county be divided, and the
new county be called Coosawhatchie, as provided
for in the "bill to create the County of Coosaw
hatchie," which was reported unfavorably upon
by the Committee on Incorporation prior to thc
recess. The petitioners stated that they would
defray the expenses of building a juil and couri
y house, the expense of building v hich was the
main objection the Committee on Incorporation
had to the passage of the WA. The petition was
rererred to the commiitee.
' COTTON STEALING. V
Wright also presented a petition, numerously
signed by the citizens or Beaufort County, which
related that there were several storekeepers in
that county who were in the habit of purchasing
at night cotton which had been stolen. Thc peti?
tion in conclusion requested the General Assem?
bly to create a law which would punish these
storekeepers, and relieve thc people or their pres?
ence. It was laid over under the rules.
From all parts or the State come complaints
rrom parties whose cotton has been stolen during
thc night and sold to unscrupulous merchants.
Yet, in the House to-day, several members as?
serted that they did not believe that there
was much cotton stolen, and that the
complaints were made merely for political effect.
The occasion or these remarks was the bill or
fered by Feriter of Sumter, "to regulate the sale of
cotton," which was the "special order''for one
o"clock. This bill provides for the appointment
or a commissioner in each county, with deputies
whenever necessary, whose duty it shall be to
weigh all cotton, and keep a registry or the buy?
er and seller. The Committee on Agriculture,
to which it was rererred, reported ravorably, v, uh
an amendment providing that the county com?
missioners or each county should appoint the
commissioners whenever in their judgment they
deemed lt necessary. When thc bill was taken
up to-day, DeLargc moved to strike out the en?
^* This motion elicited remarks from nearly all or
thc "speaking members," and even caused two
lu make their "maiden speeches." Feriter said
colton stealing w^s very prevalent in Sim
County. Fields which, at sunset, <v?re white v
'.the snow of onr Southern clime," were, at s
risc, dark and. hare-the cotton having li
stolen during thc night and sold to storekeep
and two stores In thc comity had leen bur
because it was believed ilint their owners deal
stolen cotton, and other storekeepers had b
threatened. With a view of stopping these de]
dations he had introduced this bill, but was v
lug to have it amended in any form which wo
carry ont the object Intended-which was to g
plant?is proteciion. ir they had no relief fi
these depredations, it was more than prc
ble that they would take thc law in tl
own hands. Tomlinson opposed the l
and declared it would be a dangerous experim
to carry out its provisions; besides, it was an
tempt at special legislation. He did not bell
all these stories about cotton stealing-doubtK
some had been stolen. The store of Robert;
was not burned because, as alleged, he bom
stolen cotton, but because of Iiis political or,
ious. All this clamor about cotton stealing v
bosh; gotten up for mere political effect. :
Large said the bill wu-i conceived by thc devil a
bora in hell. As regarded Feriter's statemi
that the people of Sumter would, if not reliev
take" the law in their own hands, he was not at
scared, and he would tell these gentlemen
Sumter that ir they tried that burning game agi
the State militia would take hold of them, a
they would bc shown what the law was. Bur
James, colored, favored the bill, and s;
that he did not think the burning
Robertson's store was done through pol
cal motives; anyhow he did not believe tl
Robertson s politics were up to thc high-wa
mark. Smiley and Ramsey made their maid
speeches, both opposing thc bill. Wilder, colon
waxed eloquent in opposition to thc bill, sayl
that lt was thc beginning of an effort to revi
thc negro code. He spoke at great length abc
old slavery oppressions, and sending thc mili
to Sumter to check the people if they took t
law in their own hands. Chester, colored, "hop
dc 'nactmont clause would be knocked clean c
of de bill." Whipper opposed thc bill, sayit
among other things, that he did not believe he
est commissioners could bc gottCD. Commlssic
ers to stay upon thc plantations and sec that t
poor laborers got their rights, were more need
than any other kind. After Whipper's rcmarl

SPECIAL TAXE?. ?
In the Senate to-day Luuney's bill arilhorlzii
the county commissioners to levy, in addition
the tax already authorized by law, a special t?
of four mills on the dollar for the construction
a courthouse at Darlington, was referred to tl
Judiciary Committee. Swails introduced a rcs
lution providing that the county commissionc
of Williamsburg County be empowered to levy
tax of two mills on thc dollar to build a jail.
ADVANCES FOK AGRICULTURAL FCRrOSES.
In the Senate to-day Wlmbush gave notice i
his intention to Introduce a bill repealing thc a<
passed September 'JO, 1806, to secure advances f<
agricultural purposes. This act, it will bc remen

vanees, either in money or supplies, to persoi

JURORS IN" FELONY CASES.
To-day Nash introduced In the Senate, withon
previous notice, a bill to regulate thc number c
jurors in felony cases. This bil!, which receive
its first reading, provides that in all cases c
felony the defendant shall be entitled to ten pei
emptory challenges, and thc State three.
There was no explanation made by Nash in rc

The resolution was laid over under the rules.
PATING TUE I STEHEST.
Speaking of Kimpton, reminds me of gold in
terest and that of thc fact that the State Trcasu
rer yesterday commenced paying the Interest o
the State bonds in gold. I am informed that ui
to to night two-thirds of the interest due has beet
paid, and a large proportion paid to persons hold
lng two and three bonds each. It Is stated thai
over a half of a million of bonds arc unaccounted
for, and arc supposed to have been destroyed.
To day in thc Senate, Nash moved to take ur
the Honsc btu repealing thc Towtshlp act. Les
lie begged him not to press the motion, but to let
the bill lay over until Corbin ai rived. Corbin's
whole soul, Troni the top of his head to the sole of
his foot, was in opposition to the bili repealing
the act, and it was not fair to pass lt without
giving him an opportunity or opposing it. Espect
ally should he be allowed au opportunity to do so,
because he had a lilli now before tlie Senate,
amending the act which some or thc senators de?
sired to have repealed. Wright was In favor of
postponing the consideration of the bill ror a day
or two, although he believed he favored it. After
some further consideration, lt was decided to
make the bill the special order lor to-morrow. It
will most probably bc passed. /

An immense mass meeting of workingmen
was held this evening at Exeter Hall for the pur

George Grey occupied thc chair. Thc meeting
was held nuder thc auspices of thc Workingmcn's

workingmen were present from Birmingham,
Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield and other large
On thc platform were many members of Parlia
liainent. Slr George Grey delivered a lengthy ad?
dress. He said the English labor market was
overstocked with artisans. At thc present time
thousands of men were unable to obtaiu employ?
ment, and hav'-g no means to emigrate, were
niling the workhouses. He thought it the duty of
the government to organize a system or free emi?
gration to English colonies, and to use govern?
ment vessels now lying idle for thc purpose, and
pay all the expenses of transportation. And he
believed thc government would lose nothing by
adopting such a course, while lt would Invigorate
the colonies, and enrich both the home govern?
ment and the workingmen.
Resolutions were adopted impressing upon thc
government the ; necessity of a consolidation or
thc empire by maintaining a close connection be?
tween England and her colonies. Also, calling
upon thc government to organize a national
system of emigration to the British Colonies, be?
lieving that to he thc only remedy for thc pre?
vailing distress among mechanics and thc labor?
ing men of thc country; recommending Idle gov?
ernment vessels to bc used for the purpose, and
that there shall be regular Intervals for their de?

whatever portion of thc British dominions they
may prefer to locate.
Thc resolutions were carried amid great cn?f

TIM WRECKS IK OUR HARBOR.
What they Arc, andi haw they Cam c
there-Contract for thvir Removal
Operations soon to Commence.
A corporation of enterprising capitalists ol
New York City, known an the "Monitor
Wrecking Company," of which Mr. B. T. Ben?
ton is president, has been awarded by thc
Treasury Department the contract for raising
thc wrecks now lying In Charleston Harbor.
Thc New York Tribune says:
Among these arc the Keokuk, Wechawken
and Putapsco, lron-clads, and thc Ilousatonic
store-ship, besides a large number of
others of less importance. Store-ships, block?
ade-runners, torpedo boats, vessels of every
known variety, fitted for war or peace, are
found by the divers strewn over thc bottom of
ol the harbor; probably there is not at present
another piace in the world where so many sub?
merged wrecks arc collected within so small a
space. The harbor is formed by thc junction
ol'the Ashley and Cooper rivers, which herc
combine to empty their waters into the ocean.
Across thc entrance, seven miles below the
eily, a sand bar stretches from Sullivan's to
Morris Island. On this bar thc government
stone licet of sixteen vessels was sunk in 18(11,
with the Intention ol rendering the entrance
impassable, but as the river current soou hol?
lowed out a channel on thc other side as good
as the first, it did not materially impede navi?
gation. This bar renders the harbor inaccessi?
ble to. large vessels, except?t high tide and
dangerous at all times; but tho explanation of
the wrecks "which all around with fragments
strew the sea," is not to bc found in this, but.
in those gigantic conflicts ot which these'quict
waters were not lom; ago thc scene.
The Keokuk, thc ?rsl iron ship ever sunk In
batlle, was a double turreted iron-clad, built
by Mr. Whitney of this city. On the morning
ol' the 7th of August, 16G3, she brought up the
rear of that tremendous armada of nine ves?
sels which steamed up Charleston harbor lo
attack the rebel stronghold-thc ill-fated
Wechawken, on whose stout ribs thc worms
now feed near by, leading the attack. Thc
odds were terrific ; a fleet, mounting 32 guns,
against forts mounting 300. Thc attack con?
tinued through the day. The Keokuk bore thc
brunt of the fight, advancing within a few
hundred feet of Fort Sumter, nnd receiving no
less than 90 of the heaviest shot. Her hull, at
water mark, showed 19 shot holes. She was
kept up through the night only by plugging
and continual pumping, and went down next
morning, with colors still flying, abreast of
Monis Island, where she now lies. The Pataps
co-monitor-was sunk by a torpedo, which
tore an immense hole in her bottom ; and thc
Ilousatonic, storcship, met the same fate.
The loss of thc Wechawken will bc remem?
bered by many from the sad tragedy attending
lt, four engineers and twenty-six seamen hav?
ing been carried down in her. She sunk at
her anchorage on the Uth of December, 1803.
lt was asserted ot the time that the forward
hatch was open, and tho continuous stream
poured in by the high waves washing over thc
bow deck weighed her head down before the
crew, who were alt, knew anything of it, so
that she sank before they could escape. This
seems the best explanation, though it has been
declared improbable, and even impossible, hy?
the surviving officers. It was an inglorious
end, reminding one of the wreck of the "Royal
George," of which Cowper wrote:
"It was not in the battle; no tempest gave the

case of these vessels as he said of that ono
"Weigh the vessel np, once dreaded by our foes,
And minjrlc with thc cup thc tear that Knglaud
Her timbers yet arc sound, and she may float
Full charged with England'-) thunders, and plough
the distant main.''
All efforts to raise the vessels have proved
unsuccessful. Mr. Whitney expended three
years' labor and a fortune in endeavoring to
raise thc Keokuk, but without avail, and Mr.
Benton has lost a great deal in the futile at?
tempt which ne lias made during the last three
seasons to float the Wechawken. His plan
was to nina huge iron cylinder down to the
top of the turret, to make lt air-tight at the
joint, and pump the vessel out through it. The
plan would probably have succeeded, but just
at thc time when thc machinery was oil erected
and an iron cylinder 31 feet in diameter and
and 30 feet high had been successlully Joined
to the turrel, a storm came up and washed
the whole structure away, the men barely es?
caping witli life.
even If it were possible to raise these ves?
sels whole, they have now been so long sub?
merged that the destructive worms willoh
abound in those waters have calen away the
wood-work so that it has scarcely enough
strength left to hold together, ami in many
par?- i a piece is hooked on to, it conies away
from the rotten hull without any perceptible
resistance. Under these circumstances, the
government has wisely concluded that it is in- J
expedient to atlcmpt raising the vessels whole, !
and the present contract merely looks to the j
preservation of their undestroyed metallic
?ians. The method pursued will bc to blast
out pieces and raise them by machinery Much
of the machinery used by the wrecking com?
pany in their former attempts still remains,
andean housed for Ibis purpose. Thc mines
will be laid by submarine divers, with the as?
sistance of sand-pumps removing six thousand
gallons per ninnie, for use where the vessels
are part lally covered with shifting sand, which
is olten the case.
Alter thu blast thc divers will descend with
chains, (astell them lo the disjointed portions
-disjecta intmhra-and at a signal Uley will
lie hoisted away. The powerful hoisting ma?
chinery ls ?i groat steam scow, built for the
purpose, and the fragments are deposited hy
li on other scows, also constructed specially
for that use. The machinery ls capable of
hoisting over 40 lons, a single pair of "blocks
and falls' used weighing 2700pounds.
An idea of the value ol' the metals contained
in all these vessels may be got from the follow?
ing inventory of that in the store-ship ilousa?

which withstand tile action of (he water a long
time. The contract will Include these, as ft
covers everything of value sunk within the

WORKING MEIT ABROAD.
A little hand-book has recently been pub?
lished by the Longmans, In London, containing
a great many Interesting facts relating to thc
workingmen of Germany.
Its title Is "Thc German Wornlngman: his In?
stitution for Self-Culture and his Unions for Ma?
terial Progress." The author ls James Samuel?
son, editor of the (Quarterly Jourual of Science,
and president of the Liverpool Operative Trades'
Hall. Mr. Samuelson wcut to Germany lo obtain
information concerning thc German trades'
unions for thc usc of his journal; >>ut his work has
Its value herc also, although our workmen are so
much better on* in every respect than their co-la?
borers either lu England or in Germany. Some
passages relate to wages and thc cost of
living, and others to the character of thc
societies or Institutions established by the work?
ingmen for thc Improvement or their condition.
Thus we learn that the Munich wages range
about as follows, thc rates bel?g reduced to thc
standard of our paper currency : Masons or brick?
layers, about forty-live to seventy-live cents; cab?
inet-makers, fifty cents; blacksmiths, sixty-two
cetus. These are not very large sums, certainly,
but the cost of living ls also quite low. Lodgings
for a single man cost about $2 a month; bread ls
about two and a hair cents a pound, and beer
about thc same price a quart. A workingman's
dinner costs about ten ccuts, and a cloth Sunday
suit about twenty dollars, lite dinner just men?
tioned cannot contain much meat, Tor that ls a
costly luxury, except in the form of sausages. In
Zurich, lu Switzerland, lt ls ?otnewhat worse.
The wages of a spinner in a mill, or of a work?
man in thc building trade, amounts to about sixty
cents a day, while bread is four cents a pound
meat tuteen cants, and poorlodglngs cost adollar
and a quarter a week. A small and miserable
cottage costs fifty dollars a year.
All this is very wretched when compared with
What American mechanics and workingmen arc
used to. Vet, notwithstanding their pitiful
wages, ami their poor ways of livlug, the German
workingmen lu thescda.\s manage to do a great
deal tluit is wort ly of commendation and imita?
tion elsewhere. At Elberfeld, In Prussia, they
have a court for thc settlement of all trade dis
p?tes between employer and employed. It ls
coiled Gwerbe Gericht, and lu Its operation, though
not in its legal rorm, it ls similar to thc Not?
tingham Board or Conciliation, which was de?
scribed In these columns about a year ago. It
does away with all blttemessof trade disputes, and
decreases thc supposed necessity Tor strikes.
Thc cost for trying a case is six cents.
hut thc must striking contrast ls thc difference
between most English and American trades'
unions and the Oennan workingmcn's, auch, for
Instance, as that in Munich, where two or three
hundred members, men of all trades, lor an en?
trance fee of ll fi eon cents, and a monthly sub?
scription of ten cents, have a clubhouse, willi
billiard room, gymnasium, reading-room, sing?
ing classes, vocal entertainments, 4c. Every
evening In the week has Its occupation. Monday,
writing;-Tuesday, singing; Wednesday, steno?
graphy and English; Thursday, arithmetic; Fri?
day, French; Saturday, scientific and political
lectures; anil Sunday, English again. These lec?
tures and Instructions are chiefly Imparted by
professional teachers, some of them professors in
the University. There ls a library or several thon
and volumes, and lhere arc prizes of books for
proficiency; besides a sick club, a savings bank
and an emigration society. The subscription to
thc sick chili is ten cents per month, and as soon
as thc member ls laken 111 he receives about
twenty-two cents per day until his health ls re?
stored. To join the savings bank lt ls necessary
to pay In twenty cents per month. Thc Interest
allowed ls five per cent., and the emigration so?
ciety aims to substitute continued emigration for
occasional strikes and an artificial rate of wages.
Besides similar Institutions in other German
towns,they arc now being fast supplied with
"people's "banks". and "halls of Industry"-a
practical and extended system of co-operation
the former dealing In the money of Us members,
and the latter in their handiwork by advances
and sales, and us most workingmen join both,
the former gives them money to get material,
and thc latter advances on thc finished work anti
sells lt at fair rates, so that thc industrious man
need never want work.
lt ls not surprising that, with such institutions,
wc should lind in our German working popula?
tion intelligence, thrirt and sobriety. During
his whole Ute lu Germany, thc workingman has,
anti ls required to have, his mental powers suc?
cessfully cultivated, and he has been bettering
his condition by this means, while many English
artisans have been trying to attalu the aanie end
by combinations looking only to what appears to
bc the interests of the moment. In Germany
they have been wise enough to look further Into
Mic future and provide for their own intellectual
training anti an Improved condition for their
children. In doing lids they have strengthened
themselves, made their pcsltion and their power
putin, and hare given the best proofs that they
were advancing the general good while they
! were seeking their (mu,~JPhUamphta Leader.

complexion is sallow or faded, the eyes are dell
