Sensation Among the Fashionables
?Tmuttur Theatricals-A Distinguish?
A Washington dispatch, of Monday, to the
New York Herald says:
An amateur theatrical performance was given
this evening at'Wall's Opera House by a number
of the elite of Washington society for the benefit
of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Orphans' Home. The
play was the three act comedy of "Leap Year"
and the farce of "Popping the Question." The
dramatis persona: were Sir Solomon Solus, Mr.
Roger Sherman; Captain Mouser, Mr. Thomas M.
Hoff, son of Admiral Hoff; Mr. Dimple, Mr. Jan
Tier; Walker, General Curtis; Joseph, Mr. Eb?n
Maynadier; John Thong.,Mr. Montgomery Melgs,
Jr., son of General Melgs; Diggs, Mr. Hill; Mrs.
Flowerby, Miss Jennie Schenck. daughter of Gen?
eral Schenck: Miss O'Leary, Mrs. General Rick?
etts ; Miss Desperate, Miss Jeffers, daughter
of Captain Jeffers, of the navy ; Mrs. Crisp.
Miss Sallie Schenck, daughter of General
Schenck; Susan, Miss Kitty McCarthy, daughter or
Congressman Mccarthy, of New York; "Betty,
Miss Beale. The tickets for the performance were
ccu to the friends and admirera of the amateur
performers, and .the audience, which was very
large, was composed of the fashionable and dis?
tinguished people of the city. No others were ad?
mitted?- The boxes were occupied by the Presi?
dent and family, General Sherman, the Secretary
of War. Mr. Edward Thornton, the British Minis?
ter; Secretary Robeson, und different members of
the corps diplomatique. Among the audience
was a large number of prominent ofneers of the
army and navy, senators and members of'the
House, with a goodly sprinkling of the "oldest
Inhabitants,'' the "first families." The perform?
ers were well up in their parts, and everything
went off creditably. As might be expected, the
stage was strewn with bouquets, which were
thrown m plentiful profusion by the partial audi?
tors. Being the first occasion upon which the
aristocracy has made Its appearance upon the
stage, there was a general desire, growing out of
curiosity, to see t:, L>ut the canaille wa3 not al?
lowed to pat in an appearance.
Free Trade Conference*-President
Grant on the Tariff and Taxes.
41 Washington Letter of Tuesday evening to the
Baltimore Sun says :
Yesterday and to-day several of the gentlemen
who have been la attendance on the private con?
ference held In the Interests of free trade have
called on the President and had informal conver?
sations. As the interviews have been somewhat
of a priva'e nature, it would not be proper to
commit either side to the details of the same on
the various phases of the tariff question. There
is no donbt, however, that the result ts the failure
of the President to commit himself to any specific
branch of the question-either for protection or
for a tariff for revenue for incidental protection,
or tor free trade, en the general question of
taxation, he was in favor of reducing the tariff
and the excise dntles just so far as the revenues
of the government would permit. If Congress
fonnd that the income tax could be dispensed
with after this year, he was in favor of cutting it
off; but he thought that the government could not
afford, in that event, to reduce any or tbe other
reatures or internal taratioa.
THE NATIONAL FINANCES.
It was the old story again to-day on the finan?
cial question. The Ways and Means again de?
bated the Fonding bill, and the Banking Commit?
tee took up their measure to Increase the bank
circulation but no positive result was reached
with either measure. The Funding bin wlU prob?
ably be reported this week, bnt in an essentially
different shape from the Senate measure. The
compulsory or seventh bank section, lt is said,
has been so modified as to require the bonds held
by the banks to be exchanged only at maturity.
It was rumored also that Secrttary Boutwell had
assented to the substitute which the Ways and
Means proposed to adopt.

which the Senate adjourned.

THE COLUMBIA ELECTION.
Proceedings in-the Supreme Court.
The following sketch of the proceedings in
the Supreme Court In the case of John Alexander
(Radical,) who claims to be Mayor elect, against
John McKenzie, the present incumbent, ls taken
from the Pheonix and Guardian:
The case of John Alexander et al vs. John Mc
Kensie et al was taken up. Mr. Tradewell was
heard ror plaintiffs. Mr. Rhett for defendants.
Mr. Pope on the same side. The points ol Mr.
Tradewell's argument were: L The legislative
power of this State, subject only to the limita?
tions of the Constitution of tue State and the
United States, is absolute, and cannot be con?
trolled by the courts. 2. Neither the Constitution
of the State, or of the United States, contains any
restriction upon the powers or the Legislature
over the corporation or the City of Columbia.
3. The City or Columbia ls a public municipal cor?
poration, cr.-ated by the statutes or the State<br
political purposes, and, therefore, with its mayor
and aldermen, created by the same authority, ls
subject to change, modification or abolition ac?
cording to the pleasure of the Legislature, in no
.sense partaking of the nature or a contract. 4.
The act or the General Assembly, or February 2C,
1ST0, entitled "An act to alter and amend the
charter and extend the limits of the City of
Columbia," is constitutional: the election held
thereunder ror mayor and aldermen was a valid
election, and the plaintiffs are entitled to the Im?
mediate possession or those offices.
Mr. Rhett, In reply, urged the rollowlng points:
1. Two constructions possible or the act. First,
to construe it to oust the defendants immediate?
ly. If correct, the act violates article 1, section
14, or State Constitution, and Fourteenth amend?
ment to United Sta'es Constitution. 2. Cndcr
thl9 construction, lt violates article l, section 20.
or State Constitution. The act is judicial. 3.
The proper con-truction or the statute or Septem?
ber 20,1S68, ls to make lt prospective, retain our
clients to the end or the term, and admit the
validity or the title of claimants, but only to take
effect at that time.
For the respondents, the following points were
submitted by Messrs. Pope A Haskell, of counsel
In the cause : 1. That the "incorporeal thing,"
called "office," ls, under the constitutions, state
and Federal, a "privilege"-if it bc not "proper?
ty." 2. That as such, it is recognized by the 3lst
" 'lion, article l, of the Constitution or Sonth
..ollns. 3. That a "prlvileRe," quite as well as
"property," cannot be tafc?n from the citizen
"without due process oriaw," under the Fifteenth
amendment to the Constitution of the United
States, and section 14.. rtlcle l, of the Constitu?
tion of South Carolina. 4. That judgment by
"the law or the land" is not a legislative, buta
judicial act. which belongs alone to the judiciary
by the 1st, 2d and loth sections ot article 4 or the
Constitution or South Carolina, and 26th section,
artitcle l, or the same. 5. That the "term" ?B the
lire and essence or "office," and unless the "term"
be destroyed, the "officer" of the "term" cannot
be "ousted" by the mere act of the Legislature,
as -the officer" holds the "office" by a quasi
"vested right" (for want of better words to
convey the idea) during the unrevoked
"term." c. That the "term" of the "offices" or
Mayor and Aldermen or the City or Columbia ls
not annulled or abridged by any existing act or
the Legislature, but, on the contrary, under all
the acts, the act or 1870 included, the "term" re?
mains unat ridged and unchanged, from April,
18T0, to April, 1872. 7. That the present "offi?
cers"-"Mayor and Aldermen'"-were elected to
that "term'' In 1SCS, to lill that unrevoked, una?
bridged and unexpired "term," beginning in
April, 1870, and ending in April, 1872. That the
charter of the "corporation" of the 1 City of Co?
lumbia" has not been "assumed or resumed" by
the Legislature, and Its chartered "rights'" unre?
voked, and the amendments or the "charter," by
the act or 1870, are directory merely, theteby In?
creasing slightly the "official duties" of the pres?
ent and all future "boards." 9. That this being
so, the "offices" created by the "charter." are
also unchanged and unrevoked, and the "officers"
holding under lt are protected in their "fight" to
hold by the Stale and Federal Constitutions. 10.
That an "officer" holding under the laws or
South Carolina, ls protected during his "term"
by the express words or the present Constitution
or Si'Uth Carolina, by 3lst section, 2d article
At 3 P. M. the court adjourned until Wedesday,
the 27th, at io A. M.
Thc argument berore the Supreme Court was
continued and concluded. Mr. J. D. Pope and
Chancellor Carroll brought out the sirona points
or the derence, using the double-edged sword of
masterly loaic and abundant authorities. D.H.
Chamberlain, Esq.. in reply, enforced the position
taken by Mr. Tradewell on Tuesday, arguing for
the absolute supremacy ora legislative act as the
expression of the sovereign will of the people.
The discussion or the court will be looked for
with much interest.

This afternoon has been one of funerals. In

architecture, which placed In jeopardy thc lives
of citizens in nearly every principal street.
Thirty funeral processions were geing :o the
cemeteries. All business was suspended.
The Dispatch, State Journal and other news?
paper offices were bungin mourning, and the
flags on the capitol, customhouse, public buildings
and the vessels in the harbor, were at half-mast.
The railroad trains coming into the city were
covered with emblems of mourning, and many of
the trucks and carts through the streets were
also so covered. At all the funerals, the old or?

Ihe Cadetshlp-Seller Speaks at Sumter. <
?From the Sumter News.]
The Courthouse was well filled on Saturday 1

was supposed, would reply to him. The affair i
wos,J:owever, so adroitly managed by Whltte i
more and hlsiriends, that noftlr opportunity was j
given io: a reply, lt seemed as If he had bis i
claqueurs there; at any rate, he was frequently |
applauded by his partisans throughout bis long t
speech, which mnst be pronounced a decided euc- i
cess, so far as its apparent effect upon his espe- i
dal ad mirers is concerned. t
Mr. Whittemorespoke for three hours anda |
half, without hesitation, and apparently without i
fatigue, in tones that were distinctly heard in \
every part of the house. ]
Mr. Feriter attempted to Interpose a word two ?
or three times, but was promptly called to order, i
Mr. Whittemore promising that Mr. Feriter i
should be heard when he himself was through, i
Finally he concluded, and Captain Johnson,
the chairman of the meeting, then introduced i
Sheriff Coghlan, who spoke In favor of Mr. Whit- |
temore, and not being able to hear him distluct- i
ly, and tired with long standing, ,ve left the
meeting for a time.
Other speeches were made on the same side. At
last. Mr. Feriter obtained the floor, and attempt?
ed to reply to Mr. Whittemore. blithe met with ?
constant and impertinent interruption; some
even cried, "Put him out!"
Seeing that Mr. Feriter was not to be allowed
fair play, and thouroughly disgusted with the
whole affair, we left the courthouse.
Captain Dunn was also present, but he was not
permitted to speak at all.

THE MASSACRE IN GREECE.
The details of the published correspondence
relative to the late massacre In Greece are equally
humiliating io the Greek Government, and to the
British Legation and the representatives of other
foreign powers at Athens. An Athens account of
the tlie-ht and butchery says:
The force sent in pursuit came up with the
brigands not fur from the place of capture, as
they were amoug the rocky piles with which the
plain of Marathon abounds. They were found no:
unprepared, and a severe fight ensued lasting up?
ward of an hour. Thirteen of the brigands were
killed us well as several of the attucklng party.
The superior weapons of thc troops, however,
gave them success, and the chief of the bandits,
Konit, with eight of his band, gave up the contest
and lied. Some delay was occasioned in order
that the soldiers might seek among the killed for
bodies of the captives, and at length none being
found, the troops immediately started iu pursuit.
Then followed the most excitlng^chase.
The brigands sought the northern and wooded
extremity of the plain, and succeeded in reaching
anti coneeuling themselves from their pursuers
among the underbrush. No halt was, however,
taken, and Tor seven days the prisoners were
dragged night and day through morass and
ravine, enduring hunger, thirst, and the most

that Wood ls quite as polished in lils manner as lu
