How thc City Debt and Assets Stand,
There was a terrible hub-bub in Broad street
yesterday morning, caused by rumors that cer?
tain persons had levied upon the property of the
city and that a vigorous attempt would bc taade
to throw the corporation into "bankruptcy. The
excitement reached its height by the middle of
thc day. and happy were the lucky dealers who,
on Wednesday, while the storm was brewing,
had disposed of all their stock. There were, of
course, some wry faces. Several persons had
received checks from the city in payment of
the quarterly interest on their stock, and had
neglected to present the checks immediately. To
them a city check was to the full as good as "law?
ful money of the United States," but when the
hurly-burly began and they hurried to the banks,
they found, to their horror, that all thc city funds
had been attached, and the checks were refused
payment. Some of these checks were offered the
City Treasurer yesterday, lu payment of city tax?
es, but the sharp officials In the tax office respect?
fully declined to be taken in and done (or.
There were a score of dur?rent opinions as to
the effect of the proposed procee lings upon the
city and the city stock. Many thought anet said
that the stock would dive down to thirty with a
rush. Others said that sudden death was better
than a long agony, and they wanted to see the
thing settled somehow. Another set argued that
In a few months lachrymose real estate owners
would be offering premiums to any kind youths
who would take their property off their hands.
There was on all sides a great exaggeration of
feeling-of despondency as of exultation. When
the good people of Charleston come to their so?
ber second thought they will lind this a very seri;
ous business; a tangled knot whose cutting or
untying may be both troublesome and dangerous.
THE HISTORY OF TUE TnOCBLE.
As ls well known the debt of the City of Char.es
ton is more than $5,000,000, a large portion of
which, In the shape of stock, rails due at stated
periods. Large amounts fell due in 1868. and
other instalments fall due every April and Octo?
ber until 1S93. Among thc holders of the over?
due stock were Mr. G. W. Williams, of this city,
and the executors of George Gibbon. These par?
ties brought suit against the city for the amount
of the over due stock which they held, being, we
believe, about $60,000, or which amount $40,000
was held by the executors or Gibbon.
On the 8th April Instant, the two parties obtain?
ed Judgment ror the amounter their claim, and the
executors or Gibbon at once set about enforcing
satisfaction or the Judgment.
NEGOTIATIONS WITH COUNCIL.
By the last named persons, propositions were
made to the Mayor and Council for the settle?
ment of their claim. They offered to take city
stock at par for the amount of their Judgment.
provided that the city wonld give them In Gas
Company stock, owned by the city, a sufficient
lum to make up for the discount (about 50 per
:ent.) at which city securities are selling. This
proposition was promptly declined. As a counter
proposition, the city offered to give Gas Com?
pany stock, (?r which the city holds 1948 shares)
it nar, for the amount or the claim. This was
A FLANK MOVEMENT.
In the meanwhile, other Interested pa ties be
levlng that they had claims upon the property
md assets or the city, which were likely to be
compromised, and desirous or ascertaining the
character and extent or the liability or the city,
determined to make an attempt to restrain the
proceedings or the judgment creditors and or the
Mayor and Council. Their action, generally, was
based upon the assumption that the Mayor and
Connell were trustees for the corporators of the
City of Charleston, that no creditor could proceed
under a judgment directly against the property
and assets of the city, and that under the plan
or arrangement of the city debt carried out in
1857, every holder of city stock was entitled to au
equitable share of the proceeds of thc assets of
the city, which were, at that time, pledged Ka?
the payment or the cit? debt. A bill or complaint
was accordingly prepared by Messrs. Simens &
Simons, and Messrs. Spratt, Brewster A Burke, of
counsel for Messrs. Georges. Cameron aud others.
THE BILI. OF COMPLAINT.

court, yesterday morning, ts as rollows:

The Truth about Cuba.
CHARLESTON, April 20,1870.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
The "so-called" Secretary of the "so-called"
Cuban Junta of this city, has appeared again tn
the columns of your journal In a very feeble at?
tempt to answer the arguments set forth In the
letter of the 15th Inst., signed "Justice," pub?
lished In a city paper. Ob rvlng that "Justice"
has not answered this last lucubration, whether
lt be on account of sickness or from some other
reason, I take the liberty of answering through
your columns, and commence by saying that it ls
my Arra conviction that the members of the "so
called" Cuban Junta have not been authorized to
form themselves Into a body by any one having,
or pretending to have, any authority amongst the
remnants of those who once were In arms against
the constituted authority of Spain In the Island
of Cuba, and, therefore, that they are not author?
ized, in my opinion, to collect any funds for thc
"so-called" Cuban cause. This Is my reason for
calling them the >lso-callea'y Cuban Junta and the
"?o-calle?'' Secretary of the same.
I beg you, slr, a thousand pardons for my di?
gressions, and now undertake to refute the state?
ments of the "so-called" Secretary of the "so
called" Cuban Junta, by saying that he ls content
with stating thing? without giving any reasons
therefor. To say that "the Spanish telegrams are
nothing bat a stratagem to mislead the public
sentiment of this comminity," ls to say nothing
at all, because he cannot be so' vain as to think
that the public believe In the truth of his asser?
tions, merely because he styles himself the Secre?
tary of the Coban Junta. About the particulars
of thc engagement which Mr. Forns says took
place after the date of the Spanish dispatch, aud
tn which he claims that three hundred Cubans
defeated four hundred Spaniards, (ojo!) I can
only answer that he must have received this
news from Key West, where so many other Cuban
victories have been elaborated, and where a great
many Cuban warriors arc to be found, at a re?
spectable distance from thc reach of shot and
shell, Ut companions of those self-styled Cuban
patriots who nrc now residing lu this city. I will
admit the statement of Mr. Fortis, in quoting the
Spanish Genera! Prim, that the whole Spanish
strength on the island of Cuba amounts to Sl.500
men, and I will go even farther, and sav
that there are more than 100,000 now in arms
in Cuba agalntst the Insurgents, but not more
than about 40,000 of them have been sent
from Spain, and thc rest are volunteers, of
whom as many more could bc raised If thc Island
were In peril of losing its nationality. But this
does not prove that all of them could have been
sent to the field, as the "so-called" Secretary
would make us believe; but that only 50.000 have
gone In search of thc litsurgeuts, and they have
been able to annihilate the whole rebel army, not?
withstanding the assertion ol' Mr. Fortis that the
"so-called" Cuban force consists uf 70,048 men,
as furnished in Iiis former statement, not know
ltig that the truth was apparent that lt could not
bc thc case, since they do not stand to-day on a
single foot of ground which they can call their
own. As to thc rest of thc Spanish force, lt ls
necessary it should remain behind for the pro?
tection of ttie cities, towns, villages and other lo?
calities, where the rebels have not yet made their
appearance, but which must, nevertheless, se
protected from the evil Intentions of those who,
under the name or patriots, would sack and burn,
pillage and destroy everything they found in their
way, (as they have done in unprotected places,)
and as they would do ?veay where If there were no
troops at hand to repress their Ill-doings, and
which they do not do for the cause of liberty, but
tor their own pecuniary benefit and to satisfy
their evil passions. I will state in behalf or "Jus?
tice," that he has no need ot going to Cuba to de
rend the Integrity of the Spanish dominion, be?
cause the Spanish troops and volunteers there
are more than enough to complete the pacifica?
tion of the Island; but the so-called secretary
aud those self-styled Cuban patriots, who left the
Island after the tight had commenced, ought to
be ou the battle-Held, Instead of trying to sen?!
othess there to secure for them their Indepen?
The rad is, slr, that thc Insurrection in Cuba is
now virtually ended. This ls evident nst only
rrom the otllclal announcement or the Captain
General ortho Island, but also lt ls visible to all
who have dealings with that Island, as every
branch of commerce, and particularly the
finances, have greatly improved. Nothing proves
this more than that last year the discount on the
bills ot the Bank of Spain, in navana, was at G to
8 per cent., and even more, .ind now lt is only at
lji to l fi per cent., accord^ig to the latest ad?
vices. This ls the real state of things; all else ls
mere illusion. VERITAS.

Philadelphia, C. E. Robinson, proprietor. We
have been using the Ink manufactured at these
works for a year past, and lt has always proved
satisfactory. Mr. Robinson deserves the encour?
agement and patronage of the press, and of
printers generally for the following good and sam*
clent reasons, viz: First. He was the first to nut
down the price or printing ink to a reasonable
figure. Second. This Ink equals, If it does not
surpass,ln quality that or any other manuracturer,
while his prices are as low as any other. Third.
Mr. Robinson Is one or the most pleasant and ac?
commodating- neh'tlemen to deal with that we
have ever met with. . Besides his newspaper inks,
he also manuractnres the most superior and de?
sirable qualities of job Inks, Ids best qualities be?
