[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE NEWS.]
COLUMBIA, Thursday, February 23.
The bill to re establish the usury '-sr wili
meet with little favor in the Senate, an- may be
considered as practically dead. There ls at this
time no hope of the success or the effort to get the
State to relieve the City of Charleston ofthat por?
tion of the municipal deb: whl- h was incurred in
aid of the construction of railroads.
Hie great question of the day nereis the tri?
umph or de'feat or the pending railroad bills. The
New York speculators, who are at the bottom of
these measures, threaten that unless their two
jobs-the Greenville and- Port Royal bills-are
passed, they will break down the State credit.
Other wild threats in the Interest of the Railroad
Riuir^Lre nying about in all directions. Asan in?
stance of the shameless manner in which their
little game is played, I may mention that the
Greenville Railroad King keeps an open bar m the
Judiciary committee room, where the members
of the House are invited to drink and smoke free
of charge. Bribery is rampant on all sides; but
the Port R'.<yal job ls about dead, and the Green?
ville job will have a hard road to travel in the
House and afterwards ^in the Senate, and will
then have to encounter the Executive veto, and,
if necessary, an appeal to the courts.
The Senate, to-day, adopted the resolution In?
troduced by Arnim, protesting against the pay?
ment of ninety thousand' dollars for fitting
up the House of Representatives. Whittemore in?
troduced a bill to create a sinking fund for the pay?
ment of the State deb?; also a bil] providing ferr
the cancelling of the Blue Ridge Railroad bond?. A
resolution to sell the lands purchased by the
land commission iu Darlington to settlers at four
dollars per acre was ?aid on the table.
Tlie House was engaged for focr hours consid?
ering the bill to make appropriations and raise
supplies for the fiscal year, commencing Novem?
ber 1st. Many reductions were made.
Whipper returned from Washington to-day, and
reports that the committee sent on by the House
were unable, on account of the Carnival, to see
the President during the present week. Tte
other members of the committee remained there.
THE WORK OF THE LEGISLATURE.
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. 1
COLOMBIA, Wednesday, February 22.

The special committee appointed to examine
the accounts for Otting up tue House of Repre?

mending the payment of $93,506 31. Myers moved
to Itemize the account, print it and Jay it on the
desks of the members before further action was
lak< u. Jones tmught the committee had done
the best i: could, and the motion reflected -dis?
credit ou them. Myers replied that he was.not
bound by the committee report; that he knew
something about this, which, if told, would
make must of the members' hair stand on eud.
He had affidavits to prove tliat S40.000 of this
amount were stealings, and unless the account
was itemized he would publish facts In the news?
papers over his own signature. After some fur?

The foil wing protest was entered on the Journal :
"We vote no, un the motion to pay the account
for flttiug up the Uodse of Representatives (not
because we ?ire opposed to paying the debts of
the State legally incurred,) but because we think

LARGE FIRE IN SAVANNAH.
Five Hunt ed Thousand Dollars' Worth
of Property Destroyed-Six Buildings
and thc Contenta Burned.
[From the Savannah News, of Thursday.]
About ll o'clock, on Wednesday "night, a lire
broke out on Bay street, corner or" Whitaker, lu
Savannah. In the rear of Bed ? Hu Ts auction
room. In the rear or the building the steamer
America was lylug. having just discharged her
cargo. The wharl was completely hued willi bar-,
reis of kerosine oil, which of cours" had to be got
out of the way. Everything upon the wharf set
to and worked with a will, until the dangerous
olem-nt was completely out or reach. The
lire progressed rapidly.-and so:n the walis
Jell In with a loud crash. The papor warehouse
or Mr. R. A. Wallace, located lu the upper part or
the banding, was soon a prev to the devout lng
element, au i his atocK was soon living through
the air in every direction, m one" instance, at
least, causing additional danger, a house on Ur wm
street being set un arc, but fortunately discovered
lu nine to be put out. Mr. Wallace estimate* his
stock at a valuation or $12.000, for which he is In?
sured 55.00. Just bet?re tue walls of Kell ,fc Hull's
premises Ml through, the steum-.-r America Und?
ing her decks were becoming heated, moved off
Into ihe stream. Three hundred feet or hose were
covered beneath tue bural tig bricks, aud a ne*
supply brought into requisition, suou after the
store of Mr. Wm. M. bavidsou burs: out wu li ?ni
unusual degree or violence. This otore contained
the largest, amount or liquors or any store In >a
vanaah, certainly not less thau ?iu.Ooo worth In
value, and or course the Ure soon became terrille.
It seemed impossible to say where the dre
would stop, l ne large amount ot cotton stored
under Belt A Hull's store next caught on fire, aud
the Haines burst out in volumes, first as black us
Ink itself and then as brilliant as could well be
imagined. The burning rafters next Tell In. aud
?the aceue appeared really teniiuc. Crash went
the walls again, and neople were Jiving iu every
direct-on. believing that, from the amount of
kerosene known to be stored in the blocK, that a
terrible explosion would be th? next tiling in
order. Hodgson's block, ont he right end 01 ihe
bud Hug, was soon declared past saving. Several
length! or hose hurst, aud lt was round Impossi?
ble to check ihe leaks by blading bagging around
the broken places, although the utemen tri??l
very hard to do so. The wind was blowiug furi?
ously, and the an- was cold and keen, vet the
firemen worked with a will, and lu many ?ustau
ces, within our own personal knowledge, many
or them had narrow escapes.
Among the parties burned out we may mention
the following, merely premising that at this hour,
hal.-past 2 o'emuk. lt Is almost Impossible to as?
certain the actual ?OKS sustained by eac't, or wira
amount was covered by insurance : Messrs. Bell

"No, slr. I haven't; and you may write down
just wnat 1 say. It was agreed between us two
months ago, I being Influenced by pecuniary and
fearful reasons, that tins man's name wno should

Wilkinson, and that was the name that the black?
moustached young fellow gave in Washington.
He swore ih.it 1 was living with Bowen at the
time, and that I, Tearful ol sometime breaking up
with Bowen, sent ror him (Wilkinson.) and gave
him two hundred dollars to marry ?ne. Tuat he
never saw me before, and never saw me arter that
?lay he !:ad married me. Wen, now. I must tell
you that two or three years alter Bowen and I
were married, there was some doubt about our
being really married, and I sent to the judge at
Newport aud got our marriage certificate; Bowen
didn't know that I had lt until two or three rears
after, bu', be never doubted that I would stand by
Hie story we had made up, until I handed tl US
certificate to the prosecuting attorney. The
Judge who had given it had been sumrnuiied rrom
Newport, and he didn't even have to examine ii,
so sure was he that he had written lt himself.
Welt, they asked this yoting nun, Wilkinson, tr
he had gorti-n this license, to explain tho Judgd's
huu.se and the surrounding-', and he nm.lc so
many mistakes that the judge and everybody
around laughed at him, aud one lawyer, wnot sat
behind me, said: 'If that woman wasanvihiug

"Yes, slr, the reporters have bothered me to

say anything against him, but it ls so that he has
tried to defame my character."
"Well, good afternoon, Mrs. Bowen, we will
try to set you right." and, bowed out by the now
well-disposed lady, the reporter tells this true
story of the pleasant idlosyncracies of a verl
table carpet-bagger, who represents so grace
fuliyand becomingly a large, though somewhat
allen, constituency in the Congress of the
United States, from the state that In the old
regime, In the terrible days before the most
righteous and religious war the world has ever
seen, was accustomed to send such ungodly and
vicious and ungentlemanly representatives as a
Plnckuey, a Hayne or a John C. Calhoun.
THE SECOND CHARGE OF BIGAMY.
[SPECIAL TE I.KGR AU TO THE NEWS.]
WASHINGTON, Thursday, February 23.
Bowen was this morning arraigned In a po?
lice court on a second charge of. bigamy. _He
waived the preliminary examination, and was
held to ball lu the sum or five thousand dollars to
await the action of the grand Jury.'
A FLEA FOR BO WEN.
[From the Washington Chronicle of Wednesday. J
We have received a letter from Mrs. S. Petl
gru Bowen which moves us to the very heart's
core. To a woman accomplished, proud and sen?
sitive as she ls, the events of weeks past must
have brought luexpresslblc pain, and wrought lu
her the lntenscst indignation and hate. We can?
not print the communication because of Its
length, and because, that with much of denuncia?
tion which ls severely Just, there is also unjust
censure. She says, touchingly, of Mr. 0. C. Boweu
"He had not concealed hl3 antecedents from
"me. I knew that he had been an orphan boy
"without relations or friends, had drifted into
"the company of gamblers and prostitutes, and
"had lived their Hie until It pleased the good God
"to lift him fi om the mire and to stir within him
"tho spirit, of reforma!ion and purification."
Knowing C. C. Bowen well, we know that when
he married Mrs. Pctlgru King he did it with the
drm resolve to lead a temperate, studious and'
honorable life. We personally know-that for
mouths thereafter, aud we believe that to this
day, he hus kept that resolve. She states also
truly, that the prime movers in these prosecu?
tions are actuated by no zeal ror the welfa. e
of society, but by simple hateful revenge, and
pursue these . matters with thu sole pur?
pose of breaking down the political strength
of Mr. Bowen In lils cw.. Congressional
district, arid prejudicing In advance bufore con?
gress his contesied election ca e. Were lt not for
tuid the recent prosecution would never have
been heard of. It ls also true that the facis of the
early life of Mr. Bowen exist, and that tue United
States Court can not refuse to take cognizance or
them when brought to its notice. It was the duty
of the attorney lo prosecute, and of the court to
try the case. The motive of the lnrormer and
tireless pursuer has nothing to do .with this. We
wrote nothing during the trial, because we did
not wish to seem to prejudge the case. We cannot
now justify or in any manner excuse Mr. Bowen.
Even ir no: guilty of bigamy his past record ls terri?
bly dark. Having sown the wind be bas reaped the
whirlwind. "He that walk et li uprightly wal sc th
surely," and he alone. Yet we would dweil on
all mitigating Circumstances as given by Mrs.
Bowen, und as we know them to be trna, we
would with charity grant opportunity for repen?
tance and ror living down the evil or youthful
days. We Indignantly c mdemn the spirit of per?
sistent malice with which this prosecution is
pushed. We give almost, tearful heed to the cio's
ihg appeal wrung from the agitated wile in the
bitterness of her soul :
"This persecution takes every shape-murder,
"arson, forgery, burglary-arc adued 'to the
"charges of bigamy. Tue most ridiculously
"ghastly stories are gravely Inserted tn newspa?
pers by order of uue person ; warrants are Issued
"on his sole testimony aealn and again; we-shan be
"reduced to abject poverty by legal requisitions*;
.'my life ls harassed, iny health undermined, my
"reason tattere, au i I lie ut the mercy ora villain
"whose very countenance should Inspire disbelief
"I appeal to the public In every State. I im
"plore thc press to veutilate this loul business. I
"ask protection at the hands of honest mea and
"By tue memory or my great father, whosellfe
"was a lesson of nobleness and duty; whose time
"belonged to Hie oppressed of every sex and race,
"I ask relief from this vile persecution. Shall I
