THE BOWEN-DELARGE WAR-CONTESTS OF
THE FACTIONS-THE TWO CONVENTIONS.-The
contest between the supporters of Bowen
and DeLarge Increases as the day lor the de?
cisive battle approaches. The adherents of
both parties are hopeful, and are willing "to I
do or die" for their leaders, who will do any
amount of suffering for them In Washington at
a yearly expense to the United States of $5000
The Congressional aspirants have caused a
.hopeless spilt In the ranks or the Radicals of
'the First District. The partisans refuse to
.make peace-even the olly tongue ot young
Moses Is disregarded; flattery, threats, com?
promises-all fail to lessen the gulf between
them. Both Daddy Cain, who wishes the
.nomination for the State Senate, and W. H. Ml
.shaw, who aspires for the same position, claim
to be the legal chairman of Charleston Coun?
ty-the former supports the claims of DsLarge
for Congress, and the latter of "Bowen. A
short time ago each chairman directed meet?
ings to be held on the 5th of this month to
.elect delegates to meet in convention this af?
ternoon, to make nominations for a school
commissioner, three county commissioners, a
Judge of probate, a senator and eighteen
representatives. Meetings were held at the
tftue appointed in all of the wards of this city,
St. Andrew's Parish, St. -James Santee, St.
James Goose Creek, St, John's Berkeley, St.
Thomas, St Denis, St. John's Colleton, Christ
Churc'.t Parish and St. Stephen's. In Wards 1
3, 5 and 6, at St. Andrew's, St. James Goose
Creek and St. John's Colleton, the factions
which met together split, and each elected de?
A few days af^er this, Daddy Cain promul?
gated a call to the "various Republican voters
of Charleston County," to hold an election at
a few designated points in the county, for dele?
gates to a convention to meet at the Military
Hall, on the.29th of this mouth. He states
that bis reasons for making the call are, first,
that he has the right to do so as he has been
recently recognized by the Republican State,
executive committee as the duly elected chair?
man of the county; second, that "several irreg?
ular meetings were held In the county, and so
called delegates elected, under the call and
direction of W. H. Mlshaw, the pretended
county chairman;" third, that "at many of
these meetings thus called and presided over
by him (Mishaw) numerous bands of armed
men participated In voting, although not voters
In the precincts In which the meetings were,
held, and thereqy a lull and free expression
of the choice of the people was prevented;"
and fourth, that many of the voters of the sev?
eral preclacts dislgnated by him (Cain) de?
manded another election, in order that they
T?lght have, untrammelled, an opportunity of
expressing their wishes in the matter of send?
This proclamation of Cain's raised a perfect
storm of Indignation among the adherents c;'
the Bowen-Mishaw faction. They retort that
Xhe Cain-DeLarge adherents used pistols, and
prevented men opposed to them from attend?
ing some of their meeting.-. They also assert
that Cain, ia his call, only provides for meet?
ings at precincts wiiere mea opposed to him
were elected as delegates. Cain considers the
Customhouse as the headquarters of his oppo?
nents, and in the Missionary Record writes
some of the most savage ot editorials against
those employed there.
The Bowen and Mishaw convention will
.meet lu the Military Hall, at five o'clock this
.afternoon. They claim to have the larger num?
ber of duly elected delegates, and will, of
-course, put out a ticket for couu.y officers, ll
an orderly meeting can be secured. But this i
seems impossible, when it ls remembered that
there are a large number of contesti ng dele?
gates, and that there ls much llMeehng be?
tween the iactlons, so much so that in several
Instances the utmost efforts of their leaders
had to be exerted to prevent the spilling of
blood. However, whether or not the conven?
tion of to-day puts forth a ticket, it will
-shortly, as also wUl Cain's convention on the
fatter part oMhls month.
The Proposed Increase of Width-Deci?
sion of the Committees.
For many years past there has been consid?
erable discussion about the propriety of widen?
ing East Bay street, between Market and Hasel
streets. Numerous committees were appointed
to make some arrangement with the property
owuers, whose ??cid would have to be appropri?
ated to obtain the width of street desired,
but until Friday last no decision was reached.
During all of the time these negotiations were
pending, some of the property owners desired
to rebuild but refrained, thinking that the
question would soon be decided one way or
another. At last, believing that nothing would
be done in the matter, they gave notice that
they would rebuild upon the old line. This
warning acted as a spur upon the council.
The city engineer, Mr. Barbot, auder instruc?
tions prepared an excellent map, showing the
locality, and the advantages to be gained by
the proposed Increase of width. A committee,
consisting ol Messrs. Moroso, Shrewsbury and
Caulfield, was appointed by the Council to
confer with Messrs. Oakes, Enauff and Selg
nious, the committee appointed by the prop?
After several consultations, the joint com?
mittee, on .Friday last, resolved to allow the
following valuation upon the laud required tor
the contemplated improvement, the said
valuation being based not only upon the
assessed, but the market value of each lot lu j
On the east side of East Bay-lot belonging
to the estate of the late C. C. Plnckney, no
damage to be allowed, nor will any assess
I ments for improvements be made upon it; lots
I of E. Bull and James Jeffords, thirty cents per
square fool; lots of J. M. Carson and James
Marsh, twenty cents per square foot; lot ol
Mrs. Thompson, forty-five cents per square
foot; lots of Theodore Wagner, one at fifteen
cents, and the others at ten cents per square
foot. On the west side-lot belonging to the
estate of C. C. Pinckney, extending from
Market to Guignard street, twenty-five
cents per square foot; all of the other lot3 ex-1
tending from Guignard to Hasel street, ten
cents Der square foot. The quantity of land to
be appropriated Is 17,793 square feet, 12,391 on
the east, and 5402 on the west side, the
average rated value of which is twenty-five
cents per square foot, makins the value of the
whole $4488. The total cost of the Improve?
ment, lt is anticipated, will be, Including value
of lands appropriated, $10,000. The commit?
tee also decided to assess the lands they valued
for any improvements. This assessment, lt ls
thought, will almost, if not entirely, cover the
expense of the Improvement.
As is generally known, the road-way of that
portion of East Bay which it is proposed to
widen is very narrow. At one part, near
Pinckney street, lt ls not wide enough to per?
mit the passage, at the same time, of two
drays loaded with cotton. The proposed width
will be sixty feet from building to building,
with a roadway of forty feet. If the Improve?
ment be made, the buildings at the southeast
corner ol Hasel and East Bay streets will have
to be removed. The committee did not value
these, but referred the whole matter to the
City Council committee on buildings and
It is thought that the City Council will en?
dorse the action of the Joint committee, and

INSTALLATION OF A PASTOR.-The Presby?
tery of South Carolina met lu the Presbyte?
rian Church of Abbeville on Friday morning
last, for the purpose of ordaining the Rev. Ja?.
L. Martin, and Installing hltu pastor of the
Abbeville church. After a trial sermon from
the candidate, he was examined by the Pres?
bytery. The examination was contiuued tor
two and a hali hours, aud embraced nearly the
entire course ot theological study, as it ls
taught lu the seminary at Columbia. S. C. The
candidate passed the ordeal ino?t successfully.
At night, after a sermon from Rev. John Mc
Lees, the Rev. J. O. Lindsay delivered the
charge to the minister, and Rev. R. A. Morse
the charge to the people. The following day
Mr. Lewis W. Perkins was ordained a deacon
In the church.
RICE THIEVES.-A plantation on this side ot
the Savannah River during the harvesting of |
the rice crop, a few days ago, was considera?
bly excited over the discovery of a systematic
robbery of the cereal. The pla? of the colored
thieves was to cut about four stacks and de?
posit them iu bigs over the fields, gathering
their plunder whenever opportunities offered, i
We understand that the culprits were detect?
ed and arrested, aud given the alternative of
working forty days for uo wages, or paying
the ralae of the missing rice. Which they ac?
cepted, we did no learn.
NEW RICE AT SAVANNAH.-The Republican of
Saturday, the 10th. says : "The first arrival of
the new" crop of rough rice was received hy?
the Lower Mill yesterday afternoon, in the
shape of 454 bushels from Mr. J. W. McAlpin's
plantation, (the Hermitage,) on the Savannah
River, being the first instalment of his crop,
and the work of pounding will commence
on Monday next. Tue cereal ls of superior
white quality, and weighs forty-two pounds to
the bushel, with one per cent, of volunteer."
SEA ISLAND COTTON AT SAVANNAH.-The
Morning News of Saturday last says : "Messrs.
F. & M. Farley, of this city, are in receipt of sea
island cotton, shipped them from the extreme
western portion of Escambia County, Florida,
within a short distance from Mobile. It was
sent to Pensacola, thence to Montgomery, and
thence to Savannah, and is said to be the first
bale of cotton ever coming from that sec?
tion. It was shipped by B. F. Simmons, Esq!,
of Pensacola. "
"THE CA.THEBRA.E" J.T STRAS
B O URO.
Tue lovers of architectural beauty and cathe
dial history must have been considerably af
fected when the newa came, a few days ago,
that the "Cathedral at Strasbourg waa partial
ly destroyed," an<3 that the bombs of tha
Prussians had demolished, iu so short a time,
what it required the labor and skill of years to
produce. The Town of Strasbourg itself, ex?
cept for its great antiquity (and pershaps, I
should say, for being tho spot whore Boger
de Lele first suug bis famous eong,) is
generaly uninteresting; stands In a very flat
country about two miles from the left bank of
the Rhine, is irregularly built, and, with some
few exceptions, the etreets are intolerably
crooked and narrow. Something of a creek,
which is called appropriately the III, and ap?
pears decidedly eo, runs through the town,
and is bridged over in about fifty places. In
1681 Austria ceded the town to Louis XIV, who
directed bis attention to strengthening the
then existing fortifications. The great, and
in fact the only point; of interest in Strasbourg,
is the Cathedral of "Notre Dame," not so
1 arge as its name-sake in Paris, but decidedly
more magnificent-a beautiful specimen of.
the Gothic style, commenced iu 1015, and com?
pleted in 1439. Nothing can exceed the rich?
ness of its western fiont; before the admiring
eyes of the stranger is a vast pile of solid
storJe, so delicately carved that a wonder arises
in the spectators mind how so fragile and
lace-like a piece cf work can withstand the
wiuda of heaveu. Every detail is wrought
with marvellous perfection, every ornament a
gem of art. Tbis front is divided into
three compartments by elaborately carved
buttresses. Across these, horizontal bauds
divide the front of the building into three
stories; the lower contains three doorways,
the second 'Tosa windows" of stained glass
some forty-eight feet in diameter. Enclosed in
canopied openings are three equestrian statues
of Clovis, Dagobert and Rudolph of Haps?
burg. A fourth opening ts unoccupied, (set
apart probably for Napoleon. The third and
upper portion contains soma superb painted
windows. From the northernmost corner
rises the cel?brale! to .ver and spiro, ascend?
ing co a height of f our hundred and sixty-six
feet above the pavement, richly ornameuCed
from the base until it seoras almost to mingle
its spires with the clou ls. Ou entering the
Cathedral, the vastness and majesty of the
interior cannot fail to strike the beholder wi'.h
awe. The nave extending nearly three hun?
dred and fifty-seven feet, and roofed over
seventy-nine feet from tho marble floor. The
magnificent sculptured choir, niue monster
pillars separating the navo trom the aisles,
while streams of rosy, mellow light flow from
the many staiued windows, (each a master?
piece of artistic talent.) aod add tn an indes?
cribable manner to the solemnity of the in?
terior. A pulpit of stone, c msidcred the most
beautiful specimen of the ktud in the world,
afford*. b3iutic3 enough for a day's study. In
the south transept is found tin great curios .ly
of Strasbourg, the world renowned clock, con?
structed in 1571, after the plaa of a cert tin
mathematician, one "Dasypodius,"' and per?
forming more wonderful feats each hour than
half of the clocks in Christendom, (so at least
the guide will inform you.) This complicated
clock ran well for two hundred years, and then,
to th; surprise and disgust or the Strasbourg -
ians, suddenly stopped. No one in tte town
could remedy its internal disorders, and for
fifty years it remained dumb, until a few years
since a wntc'imtker undertook to set it again
in motion. It is, probably, uow forever sile ac?
ed. Among other curiosities of this clock, a
cock at one time caine out at intervals nod
crew, but, say the good people of Strasbourg,
"being twice struck by lightning, the bird
only ventured to appear afterwards on holi?
days and fetes."
It is sad to reflect that this venerable and
splendid pile iu being demolished. It suffered
much during the French r?volu'ion, and
scarcely has it been restored when war again
threatens tts destructiou. C.

A COLORED MAN SHOT.-On Friday last, in
Barnwell County, a colored man, named Hen?
ry Hutchinson, was badly shot by another
colored man named Henry Black. It appears
that Black had hired Hutchinson a mule to
ride on to Augusta, and, while there, Hutchin?
son pawned the mule. On his return to Barn?
well, Black attempted to arrest Hutchinson,
who ran, whereupon Black tired, hitting him
in the back, and inflicting a severe wound.

pS* A TAINTED ATMOSPHERE.
Malarious revers are most prevalent lu the fall.
Heavy and unwholesome exhalations then arise
from the earth, and the great disparity between
the temperature or day and night predisposes
the system, enfeebled by the summer heats, to
epidemic diseases. The secretive organs, the liver
especially, are apt, at this period or the year, to
become Inert and sluggish, and all the bodily
powers require renovation. The best, Indeed the
only protection against the morbid lntluences or
the season ls a" wholesome medicated stimulant.
Pre-eminent among the restoratives ol this class,
and indeed foremost among the remedial and
preventive medicines or modern times, stands
HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS. Its reputa?
tion ls co-extenslve with the Western hemisphere;
lt bas been a standard article for twenty years;
its sales (an may be ascertained by the revenue
returns) are far larger than those of any other
proprietary preparation on this continent; and
the testimony lu Its favor embraces letters of ap?
proval from the most distinguished members of
all the learned professions and from well known
residents or almost every city lu the Union.
These are Its credentials. To stale what lt ls do?
ing to prevent and assuage the sufferings or the
human family would require more space than can
be given to the subject here. The dyspeptic, the
bilious, the nervous, the weak and emaciated,
the desponding, the broken down, find In its reno?
vating and regulating properties a sure and Im?
mediate means or relier. It ls a pure vegetable
specific; at once safe and potent, and for which
the whole materia medica affords no substitute.
