TUE SniPPrNG IXTBKKST_Thc Philadelphia
Ledger says: '-The question of 'half pilotage,'
about the legality of collecting which a dul&enoe
of opinion exists between the pilots of thc Dela?
ware river and thc masters of coasting vessels, is
about to be tested in the courts. Hair pilotage is
? charged when a vessel coming into this port de?
clines to take a pilot when haded from tiie pilot
boats at the Capes or the Delaware, and its pro
eeeds arc devoted to the use or the society ror dc
oayed pilots. Its payment ls disputed, on thc
groar. ' that it ls au unconstitutional tax on com?
merce, and that lt ts a payment for which the
pilots render no service.
"Philadelphia vessels trading to Charleston have
been charged with various lees and taxes by tue
city authorities there, which are believed to be il?
legal, and test cases have been brought in the
courts of South Carolina to decide them. The
question or harbor rees ls Involved in one case and
pilotage In another, and decisions are expected
that wUl set both points at rest. The question of
demurrage, also, or interest to shipping, has
produced litigation at various points la which
Philadelphia vessels are Involved. At Washington,
where a vessel was detained three days and a bair
beyond the 'lay days' specitled lo the bill of lading
for unloading a cargo or coal, payment of demur?
rage in accordance with the terms specified hy?
the bill of lading for the time of detention, was
refused, and this case ls now berore the courts or
thc District or Columbia. A similar case is also
pending in Rhode Island." .

ing from a while mau who was being taken to
the Guardhouse by three negro policeracu. The
man was resisting the .?tree policemen, who were
dragging him over thc pavement in a brutal raan
, ner. The party from the Mills House came for
? ward and remonstrated with the policemen, and
^requested them to usc less force, and to conduct
.'the prisoner io thc station-house in a decent mau
Lner. They asserted that they knew their busi?
ness best, and the mun, who was huh" crazed by
the treatment he received, would listen to no rea?
son. No attempt at rescue was made by thc
?party, nor were the policemen interfered with in
any way except by remonstrance; yet three
. gentlemen were arrested on arriving at the Guard- ? j
'house, and charged with interfering with the po- (
Jiceln the discharge ot their duty. Several persons
j present proffered their testimony to disprove j j
this charge, but it was not received. Ten dollars | ]
security was required from cac!; or the prisoners,
and their names, weight and height entered on the
books. One or thc party was an cx-Onited States
Colonel, another hailed from neston, and thc
' third was rrom this State. The prUouer whose
brutal treatment caused the remonstrance and

..Seeing so much feeling exhibited, I looked for

my honor as a senator and a gentleman, that I

"These men have been down in the Coosaw
River, and have moved about ten thousand tons
during ibo last year."
And you even went so Tar as to Individualize.
Although an old citizen of thc State, I could not
pretend to the knowledge of the facts that you
should have had, when you made the assertion
above alluded to, and tlierefore have been at
some pains to Inform myself on the subject.
Thc statement so far us the person named and
his associates arc concerned, ls utterly unfound?
ed in fact; not oue poiiud of rock has been taken
from Coosaw River by them, lt ls true that some
of these parties your statement has slandered,
and rho have put capital into phosphate enter?

would not advance or lend a dollar to develop the
phosphate interest in the State,) have purchased
and leased lands a; or Bear Coosaw River, from the

phosphates. So far as my knowledge goes, no
phosphate? have been takeu from any location to
which the State can lay auy claim, except by per?
haps a few poor fishermen, against whose bum?
ble Industry you indulge your sneers au? satire.
Notwithstanding your statement of the law, lt ls

ed la the institutes of Vermont or elsewhere in
Sew England, that ?i, rijfcl to talc* these phos?

The disinterestedness of some gentlemen of the
North, who come down to enlighten the poor bar?
barians of the South, reminds me of an Incident
I have seen somewhere ia Eugllsh history. When
the lirst George came over from Hanover to rule
the English people, and rode lu lils coach through
the streets, he looked out of thc window upon the
populace, some or whom received him with cheers
and others with hisses, and cried, "I comet tor
your goou," "and for our chattels, too," retorted
a wag in the crowd.
This seems to be the spirit which animates some of
you who have leftyoar native climes,where neither
your talents nor your characters were justly ap?
preciated, to reform and enlighten a benighted
and barbareas people. Whatever may have been
the barbarism or the people or this State, they
have never buen accustomed to hear those who
pretend to respectability accuse each other on
common occasions of the vilest crimes, uor have
they ever heard before a senator, on his honor as
a senator and a gentleman, charge "gentlemen"
with the foul offence or "stealing." That a gen?
tleman should charge a gentleman with theft, was
unknown to us until now. This may be a fresh
social nomenclature introduced by our new tu?
tors, or lt may be the result of a difference of edu?
cation, er or the familiar and intimate association
with the ignerant and the vicious; but in the
midst ef the barbarism which preceded the pre?
sent progress or this State, the history or its Legis?
lative Assembly will present ao example or like
Monopolies are the absorption or general advan?
tages by one person or class or pcrsous to the ex?
clusion or others. They are repugnant to free
trade and common right; are the creatures or
favoritism, and have led and will lead te nepot?
ism and oppression. They arc generally thc off?
spring of usurped and ill-gotten power, and are
usually the representatives of the licentious ava?
riciousness of greedy politicians.
You, Mr. Seuator, openly advocate a monopoly.
Professing Republicanism, you take from the
many to enrich the few. You deny to thc indus?
try and energy of all what you lavish in oblations
to the wealth of a morned oligarchy. You cry
liberty aud equality for your new friend, the col
ered man, yet you ridicule his "cauoe" and his
"scow." You deny bim thc result or bis
toll and the labor of his own arin,
whilst you laud with sycophantic praise thc
"power or never-tiring steam," and having ab?
sorbed power in your own hands, you are Jealous
that none share it with yoe but those who enjoy
the sunshine or your ru vor.
But even In the race o? all this, you are consis?
tent. lt was at least to be expected that bc
who, In his disinterested effort to make a new
government in his missionary advent uiitoug bar?
barians, had absorbed political and legal honors,
and the lucrati'-" emoluments incident to both,
would be ready to advocate thc dunns or others

THI ACADEMT o? Mostc-Thc popularity of
the Shakespearian drama In Charleston was
again made evideut on Saturday night, when thc
Academy of Music was more deusely crowded
than on the occasion when it was first thrown
open to thc public. It was, beyond all compari?
son, the fullest house or thc season.
Mr. Warner (Richard III) was still suffering
from severe hoarseness, and was forced to hus?
band his great resources. This did not Interfere
with his successful'dellvery ef thc earlier passages
lu thc tragedy, and thc wooing or "Lady Anne"
(Miss Alexander) was played with ?ne judgment
and sound discretion. The scene ls a difficult oue,
but Mr. Warner was In every way equal to the
demand upon him, and gave the audience a lire
Ute portraiture of one or the darkest phases or
thc character or him who-Shakespeare to thc
contrary notwithstanding-was the Hist soldier
and statesman of his day. As th*! play proceed
ed, the hoarseness of Mt. Warner became
more embarrassing, and h? directed Ins
attendant to be on the side of thc stage with a
draught of cough mixture. Thc attendant
brought the mixture, but poured out, by niMukr,
a wiuc-glassor Btrong vinegar, kept in the draw?
ing-room as a gargle. This thc tragedian hastily
swallowed, and, although thc potion Infeuslticd his
ictiug, for a minute or more lt entirely deprived
aim or speech. He soon recovered and resumed
als part. Yesterday, Mr. Warner underwent a
:ourse or medical treatment Tor his hoarseness,
ind last evening he was so much improved as to
jive promise that he would bf to-night have re?
gained his powers.

REST OF MANAOBK FORD-THU MATTER TO BE
TESTED IN THK COURTS.-About noon on Saturday
last Mr. John T. Ford, thc lessee of thc Academy
of Music, was arrested in that building during re?
hearsal, upou a warrant Issued by Magistrate T.
J. Mackey. Thc writ was based on thc affidavit
of a negro man, stating that on the previous
evening, January 7th, he had visited the Academy
under Mr. Ford's management., applied and of?
fered money for a ticket of admission to thc or?
chestra or dress clrelc of thc building, to witness
thc performances, and was refused by Mr. Ford's
orders, itt violation of the laws of South Carolina,
made in pursuance of t he acts of Congress forbid?
ding any distinction on account of race, color or
Thc officer informed Mr. Ford that if he would
proceed to Magistrate Mackey's office, No. 20
Broad st reet, he (the officer) would follow lu thc
rear. This suggestion was complied with, and
the seat of justice reached. The magistrale was
surrounded by a large crowd of colored people,
evidently walting for the trial. Thc warrant and
affidavit was read to Mr. Ford, and he at once
waived an examination, and stated his readiness
to enter Into bond3 and appear before the Court
of General Sessions, and expressed his desire to
test the law speedily and thoroughly. The bonds
were given by Mr. Ford personally, and Messrs.
John Chadwick and John IL Devereux, in thc sum
of live hundred dollars each. Another warrant
was then served, upon the affidavit of a negro
named Chutasen, declaring that he had presented
a ticket and was refused admission by the door?
keeper. The examination was waived in this
case also, and like bonds were executed.
The magistrate, In an explanatory way, re?
marked that thc colored people of Charleston em?
braced many persons of intelligence, retluement
and character, who did not desire to intrude
among the whites, but insisted upon precisely thc
same accommodation in thc same part of the
Others of the race expressed their reluctance,
lu discussing the case, to associate with thc poor?

PANY.-The Pioneer Steam Fire Company, tho
1 oldest organization In the Fire Department, cele?
brated their 6lxty-nlnth anniversary on Saturday
night. The Market Hall had been prepared for
the occasion under the supervision of Tully, and
the lang tables that filled the room almost groan?
ed uuder the weight of the luxuries with which
they were oovered. The firemen, and a large
number of invited guests, lined the boards, and
willing hands moved to the musical clatter of
knives and forks. After the first sortie, when
thc vigorous attack had Bleared thc tables of the
substantials, thc seductive punch bowls were as?
signed a place ia the picture.
Thc following regular toasls were announced
and responded to by those present: 1. South
Carolina; 2. Tho City of Charleston; 3. The Fire
Department; 4. Our Guests; 5. Our Honorary
Members; 6. The Press; 7. Woman.
A number of volunteer toasts were then offered,
among which the following, given by vice-Presi?
dent Wm. Knox, deserves particular notice, as lt
was especially applicable to Bremen, and con?
tains as much good advice as a small catechism:
The. Charleston Fireman-May sttam ever be
au emblem of his untiring energy and self-sacri?
ficing devotlou; his hank, that he will pull down
the burning walls of Jealousy when they exist; his
fadder, that he will aspire to noble deeds Hint he

will always cut deep Into the roots or the tree or

emblem or tbc liremau, may he always bc coupled
with lils brethren lu a bond ot friendship and
girdled with the belt ot good-will towards all, so

glim death through kis trumpet orders him to
take up his suction rrom the well or life and rmi
np his hose for eternity, may his spirit return to
that celestial emjiiu- house, not made witli ham ls,
eternal In ihc heavens.
Bung,sentiment, witticisms, stories, and asa

btu thc occasion will long be remembered as one
of thc most pleasant of its kind.
At the anniversary meeting or thc company

elected for the ensuing year. Mr. T. S. O'Brien,
who had tilled thc position of president Tor several

gORGHUM SUGAR AND SYRUFS.
Aa thc period Is rapidly approaching when
Planters In our low country must decide upon
what crop they will cultivate thc coming season,
and notwithstanding the continued disaster to
cotton crops from the caterpillar, many arc still
inclined to continue the cultivation of cotton
?mc even the sea Island-while others arc deter?
mined to substitute short cotton, honing from the
earlier maturing of the latte, crop that they may
escape destruction from thc caterpillar. Should
thc coming season, In Its earlier period, prove as
unfavorable for thc development or thc caterpil?
lar as the past, their hope of success may bc re?
alized; but it may prove tbat the coming season
may, in its earlier period, bc wet, and very favor?
able to the propagation or thc caterpillar, so that
their ravages may be just so much earlier as to
destroy the advantages obtained the past season,
Tor the difference of time In maturing of the two
crops. At any rate, there ls no doubt that the
cultivation of cither long or short cotton on the
seaboard Is attended with great risk. With these
views, may it not be well for Planters to look into
some of the facts (ind claims of SORGHUM as a
crop? This crop can be planted early In Mnroh,
and requires probably thc smallest amount of la?
bor to mature it of any crop known, much less
than corn, and being BO hardy a plant, that lt can
endure without material Injury both drought and
wet. If planted lu March it will be ready for cut?
ting and working Into Sogar and Syrup in July,
and thus in the middle or the year will enable him
to get a return for his labor. This is a matter of
great consideration, especially when Sorghum is
cultivated In connection with other crops, as it
would furnish him with means to work up his
later-maturing crops. From the disturbed politi?
cal condition or Cuba, and the injury and destruc?
tion or . the sugar crops as a result, there ls no
doubt that our supply orsngnrand molasses rrom
that source will be very much curtailed. Should
this be so, the price or these articles must greatly
As to the yield per a;re, this will depend upon
the quality of lands. Land capable of producing
without manure ten to twelve bushels of Corn per
acre, will give from seventy-five to eighty gallons
per acre of I'eflncd Syrup, and If desired, yield?
ing rrom five to six pounds of Sugar, with a resi?
due of Syrup per gallon. That capable of pro?
ducing twenty to thirty bushels of Corn, will
yield one hundred and twenty-five to one hundred
and fifty gallons of Syrup. Thc use or sulphate er
lime, gypsum, as a manure, at the rate or two
hundred and fifty pounds per acre, from experi?
ence, will almost double thc product, giving at
the sam? time a yield of from twenty to forty
bushels of Seed and a large quantity of excellent
Fodder-the Seed as a grain being almost equal
m value to Corn as a feed for Horses, Cattle, Ao.
and when ground up as Flonr, superior to Buck?
Any further information on this subject can bc
obtained by applying to Mr. FRANCIS G.CART, who
has been appointed our Agent, aud will bc pre?
pared to furnish thc pure Imphec Seed and ma?

I THE WATT PLOUGH TRIUMPHANT I
This PLOUGH ls now the leading Plough of the
Middle and Cotton States.
Among the hundreds of testimonials we have
from practical Planters and Farmers, we would
can attention to the following extract rrom a let?
ter received rrom Colonel B. G. LOCK BIT, or the
large planting firm of Jordan A Locket!, dated
Albany, Ga., November 27, I860:
"Berore closing this letter, I cannot retrain from
expressing my sincere thanks to you ror the lu
veutlon ol the BEST PLOUGH NOW IN CSE. It
ls thc delight or the negro. Besides doing the
best work thar. I have ever seen any Plough do, lt
runs with more ease to thc ploughman, and the
draft to the animal ls lighter than any Plough I
have ever used.
"Your Plough has already become a necessity
to mc, and I would feel mined without lt. I am
satisfied wo have saved, annnually, thousands or
dollars in mules alone, lt ls the Cheapest Plough
I have ever used, of any kind or description, aud
I am anxious to bring, ir I can, to the notice of
my rellow-planters, this most valuable Plough.''
Colonel Lockett commenoed using these Ploughs
In thc spring of 1868, and now has mora than two
hundred aud fifty (260) or them on his plantations.
We have testimonials as emphatic from leading
planters In North carolina, South Carolina, Geor?
gia, Alabama and Texas, but tills wBl sufllce for
Hie most Incredulous. 0
During thc cresent fall, this Plough has taken
Premiums at Eight Fairs held la Virginia, North
Carolina, South Carolina and Alabama, and re?
ceived the Highest Ratings at the Great Field Trial
in Pennsylvania, in August last, when more than
Fifty Dlifereut Ploughs were tested.
