WHAT IS TBE LEG AZ, DEBT OF
MEETING OF TAXPAYERS LAST NIGHT.
THE SALK OF THE CITY PROPERTY.
CITY ATTORNEY CORBIN APPLIES FORAN
The pr oceeclimrs ol the executors of Gibbon
to enforce the payment of judgments obtained
against the city for overdue city stock, and the
notice by the sheriff of the sale, on Monday
next, of the Artesian Well and White Point Gar?
den, have naturally excited the uneasiness and
alarm of the holders of real estate, and of the
taxpayers in general. With a debt ol' over Ave
million dollars staring the city in the face, and
falling due In large amounts every year; with
a burdensome taxation which depresses the
value of all property, it was felt necessary
that so me steps should be taken to ascertain
the real p osition of the city in relation tolls
debt, and to do what might seem best for the
protection of the tax-paying public. This feel?
ing assumed shape on Thursday last, when a
private meeting was held, which resulted in
the issuing ol the following circular:
Dear Sir-The undersigned desire you to
meet them on the 3d instant, at 7 o'clock, at
the Market Hall, to consider the city debt. We
are impressed with the conviction that in its
present form and under present circumstances
it is pregnant of disastrous consequences to
the city, and we desire to consult with you as
to the means ot' its solution.

WM. MORAN, J. C. H. CLAUSSEN.
HENRY BISCHOFF, And others.
In accordance with tills invitation, a large
number ot taxpayers assembled at the Market
Hall last night at the appointed hour.
The meeting was called to order by Mr. Jno.
H. Devereux, who spoke as follows:
Gentlemen-We are assembled here for the
purpose of taking Bato consideration the pre?
sent condition of our city affaire. While al?
most all the cities in the United States are ex?
panding and spreading their wings, like so
many mighty eagles, Charleston, hung in sack?
cloth and ashes, Ts receding step by step, until
now, overwhelmed with debt, her public pro?
perty ls about to be put under the hammer of
It Is not for us to ask whose fault this is, but
to set at work at once, and take steps to reme?
dy the evil. First, to save for ourselves and
our children the only nubile park of any ac?
count that we have, that known as "White
Point Garden," and now offered for sale to
satisfy the claims of the owners of past due
city stock. And next, to consider the proprie?
ty and feasibility of offerinir such terms to the
.owners of city stock ns may be within the
ability and power ot the people to give.
To my mind, tills question has resolved I
itself into a very simple form. We must!
either come to some accommodation with
the creditors of the city, or they will
come into possession of our property.
Oue gentleman, who ls a member of Ciiy
Council, and the owner of some one hundred
and six thousand dollars of this stock, has been
heard to say, I am told.that he would have the
last brick and the last shingle, dollar lor dollar.
The owners of the shingles and bricks are pre?
pared to show that they never delegated to
their servants, the City Council, at anv time,
the power to contract such debts, and further
more, that In the Issue of city stock, or prom?
ises to pay of any kind, they exceeded Hie
power given to tliein under their charter.
The sale of "White Point Garden" will nec?
essarily be followed by others, until even that
grandest of all charities, and most noble of all
our Institutions, the Orphan Asylum itself
will be Bold to satisfy the demands or capital
ists who hold the promises to pay ot this most
With these lew remarks. I beg ol you to
elect a permanent chairman, more able than
myself to guide your action and point ont the
fairest and most feasible plan for shielding our
good city from the grave now being prepared
Capt. Geo. H. Walter was then called to the
chair, and Messrs. R. B. Stanley and A. A.
Goldsmith requested to act as secretaries.
The chairman, after expressing bis sense of |
the importance of th,e.matters to be discussed,
declared the meeting to be ready for business.
On motion of Mr. Devereux, who accepted
amendments offered by Mr. Trumbo and others,
Resolved, That the chair appoint, at his
leisure, a committee of niue, (one from each
ward, and the chairman of tiie meeting.)
which committee should take Into considera?
tion the whole subject of the city debt, obtain
information in that regard, and report the re?
sult as early as practicable.
Capt. J. M. Mulvaney then offered the follow?
ing preamble and resolutions :
Whereas, The present condition of the
finances of the city is a subject for the anxious
consideration of all who live within its limits,
andjjjhe amount of taxation requisite to keep
down the interest charged against the city ls
heavy and oppressive, and the renewal of "the
prosperity of its inhabitants can scarcely be
hoped for, while a debt so heavy and taxation
so oppressive ls rendered necessary; and,
whereas, there is a strong conviction that a
large portion of the so-called debt of the city ls
not a legal obligation ol' (be city, and if riot,
then that the same ought ncr to be allowed lo
oppress those who in their taxes have to
contribute to its reduction; therefore,
Resolved, 1. That a committee of nine be ap?
pointed, who shall be charged with the duty of |
taking Into consideration the financial condi?
tion of the City of Charleston, and for that pur?
pose the said committee shall be authorized to
engage the services of such counsel as
they may select, and from such counsel
obtain opinions as to what portion of the
public debt of the city has been incurred with?
out authority under the charter of the city.
And that such opinions, when obtained, the
said committee shall publish for the informa?
tion of the citizens.
2. That the said commiltee shall be further
authorized'to Instruct such counsel to adopt
such measures as they shall deem-propc-i- and
necessary, to protect the public property of the
city and the interests of the citizens.
3. That the said committee be further au?
thorized to collect such fund?, from private
contributions as may be necessary to defray
such expenses as they may in mr.
Captain Mulvaney and lt". W. P. Russell
spoke In support of the resolutions, which
were unanimously adopted.
On motion of Mr. Russell, the preamble and
resolutions were referred to the Advisory Com?
mittee already appointed.
On motion of Mr. Devereux, lt was

cure the co-operation of as many taxpayers
as possible In the movement.
On motion of Mr. Voigt, it was

instructed to name sub-committees to canvass
the taxpayers in each ward.
Mr. Voigt offered the following resolution,
which was adopted:
Resolved, That the Advisory Committee be
authorized to collect all information in refer?
ence to the city debt, as also all articles which
have appeared in tho dally papers, and have
the same published, together with their report,
in pamphlet form for distribution.
On mot:on of Mr. Trumbo, amended by Gen?
eral Gurney, the chairman was authorized to
call a public meeting of the taxpayers when?
ever the same should he recommended by the
On motion of Mr. Mulvaney, all persons
present at the mecling favorable to lhe object
expressed in Hie resolunlions, were invited to
come forward and sign their names. Naarly
every persou at the meeting accordingly sign?

natures. The proceedings of the meet Ingwer?

taries, the meeting adjourned.

SUMMER FASHION HINTS.
The large, sensible pongee parasols will be
(ie riguer this summer.
A novelty this spring is the handkerchief of
unbleached linen, to match the ecru linen
dresses. They are exceedingly fine and
very elaborate, but not pretty enough to be?
come very fashionable.
Parasols this summer are trimmed with nar?
row ruches of white silk, or with deep fiat
folds of crape, or in plain black, lined with
same color. For light mourning they are oc?
casionally used in pure white, with lace cover,
but this is scarcely in keeping with the cos?
In making flounces with flat pleats turned
all one way for cretonnes and cambrics, it
must be remembered that they should be very
full-at least twice the fullness of the dress at
the bottom. They should be stitched on or
near the top, and the pleats are merely press?
ed, not sewed.
Among thc novelties shown now are some
very pretty jackets, of peculiarly soft and
downy looking worsted. They are of blue
mauze, pink and white, as well as of black
and white-and those of black with but little
white are used for carriage costumes, though
they seem much more suitable for the house.
Widows' caps are small, three-cornered
pieces of tulle, or fine Paris material, or wid?
ow's mite, redged with a black ribbon ran
through the centre. They are often not fast?
ened at all, but allowed to rest lightly on the
top of the hair willie the strings fall easily at
the side. They add much to the tout ensem ble
of a fashionable mourning toilet.
Every possible kind of trimming is worn
even beads, so lately "gone out," seem to be
"coming in" again, and the stylishness of a
dress seems to depend more on hoio the trim?
ming is used than on what it is composed of.
The poplins and other worsted dress goods of
the brown or gray shades should be trimmed
with black, as black silk bindings or mellings,
or narrow black velvet ribbons, or else with
silk of the same color, but in a darker shade.
A new way of using white muslin is very
charming, and an old blue, green, pink, or
mauve silk dress, may be made to look quite
new by its use. Large flounces, or plaitlngs
of white muslin, edged with a plain "loot?
ing," or with an excellent imitation of Valen?
ciennes, are put on the skirt, and a long tu?
nic, trimmed in the same way, falls like a court
train over the skirt, and is looped up with
bows of black velvet, or with ribbon of the
color of the dress. Sometimes these muslin
flounces are put under silk ones, reaching only
a few Inches below the knee.
Bonnets mid veils are made high, of puffs
of crape, divided with Jet or with plain bands
of the material. The veil ls, in some instuuees,
tied straight across the forehead, just on the
edge of thc bonnet, mal^ig a perfectly straight
fall from the top of the head, and giving a pe?
culiar and stylish effect. The cottage bonnet
ls particularly appropriate for widows. The lull,
ruche ls the most becoming, with white tulle
strings, hemmed and tucked; but many prefer
lust the ruche over the top. The veil ls worn
rery long-a yard and a quarter at least alter
Hie hem ls added-and a string is mn through
it to tie on with. It Is of heavy English crape,
selling from $5 to $7 per yard,, and often as
high as $12.

now in port Is a vessel which, because of its
beauty, ls worthy of notice. It is tlielliree.
masted schooner John S. Ingraliam. Captain
M. M. Packard, which was built at Rockland,

^THREE REQUISITES OF HEALTH,
ir all thc sickly people In the world were to take
to their beds, and demand medical treatment,
there would not be doctors enough to attend
them, nora suillcleut number or thc robust to
nurse them. Three conditions are absolutely es?
sential to health, viz: a good appetite, easy diges?
tion, aud the ability to sleep soundly. Seven-,
eighths of thc many thousands who suffer from In?
disposition, yet do not labor under serious dis?
ease, complain that they "can't cat,'; that their
stomachs are "out of order," or that they "don't
sleep well." For this class of ailments few poi?
sons think of calling In a physician. Nor Is lt ne?
cessary, Inasmuch as a course of HOSTETTER'S
BITTERS will certainly relieve the derangements
of the stomach, the liver, and the nervous system,
from which want of appetite, Indigestion and
sleeplessness arise. This excellent vegetable tonic
and corrective 1? also a delightful anodyne. In?
somnia, (or Incapacity to sleep,) which has resist?
ed all the ordinary remedies, will yield readily to
u dose of this pleasant sedative taken just
belorc retiring to rest. In ordinary medical
practice lt is usual to give a stomachic, nu ape?
rient, an luvlgorant, a soporific, or an antiseptic,
as thc ease for the time being may seem more
particularly to require; but In this grand restora?
tive all these medicinal properties, and many
others, are blended In due proportion. Thus the
digestion is stimulated, while thc bowels are regu?
lated, the liver toned, the strength recruited, thc
nerves calmed, the aulds purified, aud thc circu?
lation equalized. It ls believed that there is no
other restorative and regulating medicine In thc
world which acts so beneficially and agreeably
upon all thc assimilating ami secretive organs at
the same time; and to all who lacT: the three fuu
damental requisites or health and enjoyment, a
vigorous appetite, sound dlgesilon and refresh?
ing sleep, lt ls confidently recommended as a

relative to your "German Bitters." After a care?

It will no doubt be excellent for Dyspepsia, Gen?

be the most delightful and pleasant stomachic.

GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICES.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to call the attention
of the public to our Superior Flavoring Extracts.
As ten years have now elapsed since we first in?
troduced them to the notice of the American pub?
lic, we deem lt unnecessary at present to enter
Into a lengthy description of their merits, Ac
There ls hardly a etty or town of any note in the
country into which they have not found their
way. The reason or this widespread popularity
and daily Increasing demand ls owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and intrinsic worth.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts of the dav, we have still rurther improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be?
lieve that tl?ev stand without a rival. Our Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy or flavor. It is a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla Beans. In
short, we think lt the best that ls made, at least,
this is the decision of the best judges lu the conn
irv. We don't pretend to compete In price with
many of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of thu
day. which are really but worthless compounds,
undeserving of the name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.
