BLOWING HOT AND COLD.-Ola winter has
evinced the highest degree or caution this season
in making his annual approach towards our sun?
ny Sooth. Advancing like an old shivering de
crepld as he" ls, we have only felt the premonitory
applications or his staff, as h% feels his way cau?
tiously Southward. On the 1st of September last
the thermometer rose to 90 degrees, to which
height it has not since attained, and on the 22d lt
sank to 70 degrees. Its lowest figure during the
same month. In Ootober lt never rose higher
than 86, nor fell below 60 degrees; it however
rested at the latter figure several times during
the month. The hottest day In November sent
the mercury up to 80 degrees, and the cold snap,
about the loth, brought it down with a rush to 46
degrees, the lowest lt has yet been this fall or
winter. During the present month the average
range has been visibly lower than tn the preced?
ing month, although its lowest figure has been
but 47 degrees. It has never risen higher than 63
degrees. This forbearance bas been appreciated
by the poor and needy. Without wishing Winter
any harm, we hope he wdl defer his visit as long
as possible and .make a short stay when he does

CHARLESTON IN THE I EG ISL ATURE.
Two Important Propositions.
THB CITY DUST.
Notice of a bill to relieve the City of Charles?
ton from a portion of the debt by which it ls now
oppressed, having been given by Mr. Hurley, a
member of the House of Representatives, we have
deemed the matter of sufficient Interest to obtain
an expression of tue views of our principal capl
tallsts and financiers as to the propriety of carry
lng ont the plans intimated. These plans Involve,
first, a transfer of all the railroad assets ro the
treasurer of the State;-second, the 1st nc of a five
per cent, currency bond In lieu thereof, to run
twenty years; third, the submission of the ques?
tion to the voters of the State, on the first day of
Blay 1871, as to whether the State shall assume
the debt; and finally, the imposition of a special
tax to meet the Interest on said bonds, which
shall be known as the "City of Cha-lenton State
It ls a well-known fact that the municipality of
Charleston, in past years, was liberal In Its appro?
priations for public purposes to an extraordinary
degree. Perhaps no city in the United States,
through its morned men, made grander or more
self-sacrificing efforts in behalf of the Stat j at
large than were put forth here. In fact, the con?
centrated capital of Charleston, held by Its banks
and employed by its factors and merchants, rep?
resented in part the wealth of the State. That
which benefited the one, benefited the other.
Hence, an investment in the Memphis and Charles?
ton Railroad, in the South Carolina Railroad, In
the Northeastern Railroad, in thc Blue Ridge
Railroad, In ihe Greenville Railroad, or In any
other similar enterprise, which looked to the de?
velopment of thc Interests of Charleston, was re?
garded as equally tributary to the best interests
of every other port ion of South Carolina. While,
therefore, the responsibility ol the debt was vest?
ed here, every property-holder In South Carolina
who derived benefit from thc same, who enjoys
railroad communication with the rest of mankind,
owes lt to hlroself and to his State, In this hour of
our trouble, to aid In lifting the weight which
hangs like a millstone around tue neck of our
City by the Sea.
True, no legal obligations may devolve upon
him; no process of law may force him to share in
the indebteness, albeit lt was Incurred for the
general purposes of the public; but there is a
moral tie which should be sufficiently strong to
provoke the citizens of South Carolina to repay
somewhat of the good that has emanated from
old Charleston In thc past. .
Again, lt ls to be borne lu mind that Charleston,
aa a corporation, has never derived any direct
profit from her Investments lu railroads. The
rates of transportation have been scarcely more
than sufficient to pay expenses, and dividends
were comparatively Impossible. The close of the
war and the impoverishment of the people in?
creased the difficulties, and hence to day we are
deeper in the mire than ever.
If the State assumes this railroad debt, lt will
be so divided among the people for twenty years
that the burden will scarcely be felt by any one.
That lt can be done without a violation of the
constitution ls generally conceded by the best
lawyers and publicists. That the question need
not be referred to the people ls a point also
equally established. The Legislature alone, In Its
wisdom, may enact such relief as may seem most
proper, and, as the representative of the people,
accomplish a work that will advance Charleston
to the commercial position to which she ls en?
titled as the cuier city of th? South Atlantic coast.
Ftaally, with this ladebtedness lifted, the value
of property will be euhanced a hundred per cent. ;
capital, now withheld, will pour in apon us; taxa?
tion will be reduced; building enterprises will be
encouraged, and prosperity bless the people on
every hand. It ls the general opinion of our citi?
zens that the Legislature should move promptly
In thc matter. The other proposition made ls
that the city government or Charleston shall be?
come a general Insurance company.
THE CITY INSURANCE QUESTION.
On this polut very decided objections are ex?
pressed by business men. The; rn? no benefit
that can result to them by relyiug upon a city that
s unable to pay Interest upon Its debt) for in?
surance against fire. A similar proposition to
hat of Mr. Hurley was made manj^ years ago,
?ut was not entertained by thoughtful men. In- 1
leed, the expense of the flory seasons of 1838 and '
.881 demonstrate that few, If any, local cora
lanleaxan take thc risks and pass unscathed
;hrougU a great conflagration. They are almost
rertaln to be ruined. How much more so a treas
iry like that of Charleston.
It is said that no insurance company with a
?apltal of less than a million of dollars can do a
mcceasful business, for a series of years, and
lenee the reason why Northern and British com?
panies possess the conscience of thc business
;omrannlty. They do an enormous and wide?
spread business, and possess the ability co pay
;ash. Again, lt ls urged that the foundation of
;he success of the best Insurance companies ls
?onfldence. A majority of the customers depend
pn the agent to put them In a good company, and
lew few under present circumstances would rely
>n the city government.
Finally, and conclusively, nearly eighty millions
}f dollars are represented by the agents of north?
am compauies In Charleston, while the entire
property o f t he city ls assessed at hboot t wen ty ml I
lons of dollars. It follows, as a matter of course,
?hat busluess men will not bow before new Idols
ivhen thc old have succsssfully served their pur?
pose, stood the test of time, and won the conn
lenee or the community.
The above are the views briefly stated of disin?
terest, Intelligent citizens, and may be relied
apon as indicating tho current of public sent i
CAVED IN.-For a few days past our mother
Barth has exhibited several symptoms of hollow
aess, and, Jndglug by her frequent yawning,
seems to have just awaked from a long sleep.
Numerous holes have suddenly appeared In our
streets, and several traps have thus been
laid for travellers, both biped and quadruped,
along our thoroughfares. The city railway In
particular seems to bc a special object
of her retaliation, on account of the continu?
ous imposition bf tts railroad, and the heavy
;ars passing along lt. In Meeting street,
nearly opposite Barns Lane, a large cave sudden?
ly replaced thc solid par? ment, on Monday^ast, just
between the two rails of the track, and in the ac?
customed path or the ho; ses. Thc cavity yester?
day was as wide as the tracks and undermined lt
to a depth orten feet or more, making it necessary
ror the horses to be taken out and thc car pushe 1

The Christmas holidays are again at hand
a season welcome to all. To the man of bnsl
ness, because lt is to bim the harvest time, In
which he reaps the fruits of his investments.
To i he man of leisure, because it opens anew the
channels of activity, and lends an increased
charm to onr city, giving it an aspect of Ufe and
enterprise. To the wire and little ones it lu in?
deed a season which is gladly welcomed, bring?

the next two weeks our retail dealers must expect

ly purchase the same. With a view to keep our
readers posted where to make their holiday selec?

brief notices of the prominent business Arms or
our city, who have laid in large stocks, and made
ample provisions for the demands that will be
made upon them.
The acknowledged headquarters for jewelry
seems to be James /lian's attractive establish

In this store a large number of shoppers, making

bronze and Parian statuary, studs, sleeve-buttons,
opera glasses, and, In fact, all articles of fine ware
usually kept by a first class JeweUer. Mr. Allan

popular brands and grades. In addition thereto

A new dres' pattern ls always an acceptable
gift, as lt is an article of adornment and real
worth. A lover cannot make his sweetheart a
present which will merit more favor In her eyes
than a nico silk dress, jvith a view to accommo?
date their many patrons who will wish to pur?
chase all kinds of dry goods, Messrs. Furchgott,
Benedict & Co., Nos. 244 and 437 Klug street,
have, with the greatest or care, ohosen a select
stock adapted for presents, and marked lt down
at the very lowest figure. Those contemplating
making presents of dresses or any article of dry
goods should bear this fact In mind, as by visit?
ing either the up-town or the down-town stores of
this firm the latest novelties can be procured at a,
small advance on first cost.

him alone In the shop, on Tuesday, bolted the
door and accosted him In very flowery language.
The boy observed that he did not object to bolted
flour, bat prererred the door unbolted. The mas?
ter not relishing the Joke, hiade a rush at him,
and having administered several blows lo the face,
wound up by giving him a sevore choking. The
suit was the consequence, and on the trial the
baker admitted that, although, his boy was a very
well-bred fell iw, he stood In knead of beating to
