--Submitted the following report on the finances
?1 the P?ate, and which was, with the resolu?
tions, adopted :
The committee of eleven, to whom was re?
ferred the resolutions regarding the finances
of the State, report as follows : This resolution
having been published in the newspapers be?
fore the assembling or the convention, your
committee were promptly apprised by his Ex?
cellency the Governor, and by the other State
functionaries referred to, of their readiness to
furnish the required information. The comp?
troller-general furnished to tne convention
themselves a printed "statement ot the funded
debt o? the State of South Carolina, and infor?
mation relative thereto." In thlB "statement
the total tunded debt ol the State." is set
down as the sum of $7,665,908 98. To the sum
of the funded debt, viz : $7,665,908 98, must be
added, in order.to exhibit the sum total ol' the
debt of the S\aie, the cash advanced to the
treasury by the financial agent. This is set
down by Mr. Kimpton at Che round sum of
$800,000, and also the further sum of $400,000
for bonds sold by Mr. Kimpton since the date
of the comptroller's report, viz : makins a
grand total of debt ?f $8,865,908 89.
The SUUL total ol' bonds remaining unsold in
the handsof the agent, as already shown by
the comptroller's statement, waB $2.200,000.
From this amount must be now deducted the
amount sold as above stated, $400,000, leavlt.g
$1,800,000. This amount ol bonds, nacc-iy,
$1.800,000, is pledged for the security of the
$800.000 of cash advanced by the agent.
In view of this condition of the finances oi,
the State, your committee would respectfully
make the following recommendation viz : 1.
That his Excellency the Governor be respect?
fully requested to confer with the financial
agents who is now in Columbia, and to tele?
graph to New York not to sell any more bonds
ol' the State at less than 80 per cent.
2. That his Excellency be respectfully re?
quested to proceed to New York, and to make
the most economical arrangement possible for
holding this $1,800,000 ol bonds, until the
above limit of 80 per cent, becomes attainable."
3. At 80 per cent. $1.000.000 of bonds will
discharge the debt of $800,000 due to the finan?
cial agent, and release $800,000 of the hypothe?
cated bonds. This sum ol' bonds your commit?
tee recommend that lt may be respectfully
suggested to the Gvernor to use in the follow?
ing manner :
The amount of funded debt now payable,
and that approaching maturity combined is as
Fire >oan bonds,.Bariug loan.$440.000
Fire loan stock. S04.ouo
Amount over due.$744,ooo
Statehouse bonds to mature on the 16th
ot July, 1871.$250.000
Your committee recommeud that theil,800,
000 of surplus bonds above referred to. as soon
as they may be relieved from hypothecation,
be applied to the satisfaction in part of the
above debt of $991,000. The $744,000 of o er
due bonds constitute so much ot the fire ?oan
debt for which the capital of the Bank of the
State ls pledged, and your committee indulge
In the hope that it may be discharged from
Il the arrangements suggested by the com
' mittee can be carried into effect, the result
will be as follows :
Sum total of debt already stated - $ 8,S06,9CS 98
Add the bonds now in the hands of
the agent,.and proposed to be is?
sued. l.WCOOO 00
?Deduct the advancer made by the
agent, and proposed to be paid - 800,000 00
$ 9,803,908 98
Deduct t??e amount of fnn?' ed debt
proposed to be paid by $800,000 of
surplus bonds, on the basis of 80
pe.' cent, for the bonds, viz. 640,000 oo
$ 9,225,90S 98
Should the remainder of tue $994,
000 of fuudeu detit, now press?
ing for payment, be discharged
out of the assets or the Bank of
the State, viz. 354, ooo oo
The final sum or the funded debt
W?U be.$ 8.871,908 93
It may be reasonably objected to these sug
Sestions, that the present market price ol the
onds is only 65 per cent., while the calcula?
tions made proceed on the basis of 80 per cent,
tor the bonds. But it ls quite reasonable to
expect that upon this exhibition ol the exact
condition of ?he debt of the State, and upon
the concurrence of his Excellency the Gov?
ernor, in the general cornie of arrangement
herein recommended, there will be an Imme?
diate and considerable advance In the market
value of the bonds, and greatly increased facil?
ities for holding them off the market.
Referring now once more to the sum of the
funded debt, the committee deem it proper to
state that they bad expected to verify the ac?
count by the evidences In .the comptroller's
office, but they were disappointed.
The act of August 26, 1868, authorizing an
issue of bonds for the payment of the bills re?
ceivable of the State, provided that the bonds
should be signed by the Governor and treas?
urer. Subsequent ads followed the same
course. In consequence, there is no record
kept in the comptroller's office. The preced?
ing statement, under the authority . of t his offi?
cer, ls derived from the treasurer. It is con?
firmed by the Governor, who united with the
treasurer, Mr. Parker, in giving to the com?
mittee every assurance ol' its correctness
And lt appears to your committee thut the
several issues and sums ol bonds described
are of unquestionable legality and force as
oblUratlon8 of the State. It seems proper
further to explain that the bonds under act ol
August 26, 1868, "for tho payment ol the in?
terest on the public debt." were at first is?
sued with the above words embodied in the
form of the bonds. That these words beim;
deemed objectionable, another set of bonds tor
a like amount ($1,000,000) was prepared and
executed, and were sent to the financial agent
to supply the place of the objectionablo issue
Of this objectionable issue of bonds, $500,000
were long since returned and cancelled, as
appears by the assurances given to your com?
mittee by the comptroller and treasurer.
Upon the authority of Mr. Kimpton, agent,
and Mr. Parker, treasurer, lt apoears also that
a further Bum of $400,000 has been returned
within a few days. These have not yet been
cancelled. Mr. Kimpton also assured the
committee that the remaining $160.000 would
soon be returned; that ther? was not any ?on?
cer delay lu effecting the exchange than arose
from the necessity of waiting until the several
Wans matured for wluc'u the first bonds had
The arrangement ol having"a financial agent
In New York does not make a favorable Im?
pression upon the committee. Copies ol' the
accounts rendered by him for the fecal years
of 1869 and 1870 are annexed to this report
for referent*, marked respectively B and C.
The large sum in money or bonds always In
the hands ot the ngeni is attended with unu-i
sual risk in the management ol the finances ot
a State; and the difficulty of keeping the ac?
counts of the agency arid ol the treasury In
constant and regular accord is ttreat. Il will
be seen for example, by account "K " tnat at
the end ol' the year, the total ot the sums
charged to the treasurer by Mr. Kimpton was
$1,007,924 54, while the sums credited to Mr.
Kimpton by Hie treasurer amounted to onlv
$623,000, exliibitins u discrepancy of $384,"
924 54, or disagreement ol $384,924 54. lu
jike manner, account "C exhibits a disagree?
ment Of $294,726 92.
It is true these accounts were recently
brought into reconcilement, or miller imo
conformity, with the accounts ol the agency.,
There ts added to both an accouut ol the sub?
sequent interest by which thia was effected.
Nothing appears in these accounts to Impeach
their correctness, but it will bo seen how wide
open is the door for errors and disputes, il for
no graver misfortunes. It ?ill oe seen that
among the items brought to the credit ol the
account by the subsequent entries, .ire these,

penses, taclud ng interest. 94,977 42
These appear to have been passed lo tue
credit ot tn? agency without being audited.
The committee understood Mr. Parker, the
treasurer, to say ?hat he had not received an
account ot thc several items ol expense ihut
co io make up tne two sums ol'$64.906 71, and
of $04.977 42. These charges, as will hereulter
be showu, add enormously to the interest ol
.the public ?lebt, ncr is this the end. The com?
mittee ?earned from Mr. Kimpton that his own
proper commission as agent was not included
in the above sums, and mat the rale of exnn
pensation is not even determined or agreed
Your committee would have preferred to
show with precision what rate ef interest re
subs from iii? addition of these charges, but it
is seen that Hie full sum of the expenses is not
yet known, mither do the accounts show the
exact average sum of the cash advances made
to the treasury. Some appioxlmatlon to tho
truth may, however, be made In this way. By
the report ot the compiroller-general for 1870,
Jp. 101 to 104, tho following appear to have
een the quarterly baluLces due to Mr. Klmp
October 1st, 1889.$516,424

advances, and seven and a half .months as I

The interest and other charges, as sho
in another part of .his report, was for twe
months $94,777 42, or *7,914 76 per mon
For seven and a half months lt ls$o9,360 So.
at. the rate of 17 per cent per annum. And
this is vet to be added the agent's comix
stons. Mr. Kimpton is under the impress
that his average advance was greater thanj
sum stated bv your committee. But even ii
was $700,000'instead of $539,5SS GI, the int
est (without his commission) would amoi
still, to the high rate of 13A per cent. ?
The loss sustain?ti by the State in- this mc.
of dealiug is obvious, and it is augmenl
apparently by the fact that all this risk,*
oense and trouble, resulted ia the.sale of oi
$1,000,000 ol' bonds, and these afr,-, fjie ?noderi
rate ol' 70 per centum. The act providing
the pavanent of th? interest on the public d<
in gold had been passed, and had added v<
largely to the annual charge.^

according to the report nf 1870, is... - $180,879

SFEECH OF KB? PORTER.
If I lelt any gratification at the honor con?
ferred In the opening, I must feel still greater
gratification now. It has -been altogether to
me a duty of pleasure. For a long period ol
my lite it was my lortune to presine over one
branch of the General Assembly of the State of
South Carolina. I would pay to that body
the tribute of saying that during the
whole period during which I discharged
those duties I can call to my miud no
act of any member towards the chair or to?
wards a fellow-member that would bring to me
a feeling of regret. So much kindness was al?
ways exhiult^d tn that body that it ls a mem?
ory ot an honor that will remain with me to
the last day of my life, ?nd now, gentlemen,
one ol'the greatest pleasures is that this seems
to me a reunion oi the same kind. I Eee so
many of my old associates. I have received
from them so many expressions, and ex?
perienced so many recollections of our rela?
tions, that I feel as if it were ? meeting of old
friends alter some shipwreck, or after some
lom: period or tribulation. It ls really a pleas
ure to look again .In your faces, to see the
sparkling ol your eyes, and to reel the throb?
bing ot your hearts-hearts that are now, as
they ever have been, true to the best interests
of the Cbnrmonwealth. As lor this convention,
I will not speak in praise ol lt. It is a repre?
sentative assembly, and we need not be
ashamed Qi it. Let its results speak and ap?
peal for lt to the country 1er sympathy aud
I think it fortunate that this voluntary body
has determined to continue its sessions. If lt
act as an undignified and unharmonious body,
it will accomplish nothing ; but. intact in the
same spirit that it has, if it avoid Federal and
State politics ; If it wage no war against the
State or the United States governments, and
il it welcome to rt." ranks, as we have done,
gentlemen who propose to ?o" good, who are
for wholesome laws, good magistrates, and a
just administration ol the public-funds ; if it do
that it will have accomplished a gre?t end. I
think we have done much to remove misun?
derstanding, and inaugurate a period or belter
feeling, and' better conduct ol' our public
affairs. Thanking you again for the honor yon
have conferred upon me, and wishing you a
sale return to your homes, I bid you farewell,

[FKOM OUR OWN COKKE-rONDENT.]
NEW YORK, May 10. .
"About this lime,*1 says the almanac, "look
out for rain"-and likewise, may be added, the
Quakers. Why rain and Quakers should ap?
pear simultaneously in New York, or any
other place, cannot be Justified by any scien?
tific or meteorological explanation. We only
know they do. Last? week Hie annual anni?
versary meetings of the religious, chnriiable
and reformatory societies began, and the rain
came down In torrents lor lour days. Numer?
ous broad-brimmed gentlemen in drab might
also have been seen, picking their way care?
fully across the muddy streets, unmJndlul of
the execrations ol' their unreasonable fellow
The anniversaries do not excite as great a
-tir now aa formerly, probably because the
population ol'the eily has increased so largely
thal the strangers who come to town make
hardly any perceptible addition to the throng
which crowds Broadway. In the good ojd
limes I he anniversary meeting-* of the Aboli?
tion S?del y and the Woman Suffrage Society
[vere the signal for fun. The cruzy reformers
st both sexes and hues, who used to congregate
)n the platlorm and wrangle among them?
selves, afforded imparalleled amusement lo the
sew Yorker blase with theatrical sensations.
Tue newspapers were always certain to have
.heir most facetious reportefaon hand, to give
life-like sketches of the proceedings. The at?
traction seems io have gone ont ol Hie relorm
meetings in our day. The reformers are dec?
orously heavy, the audiences proportionately
slim, and the reports lu ihe newspapers cor?
Perhaps the most interesting of ?he reform
;allterings was that at the Tammany Hall, mi?
ler the auspices ol' the New England Lnbor
reform-League. The most flighty commun?
istic doctrines were avowed, auu though there
ivas, the usual difference of opinion abotti.
everything exhibited in Ihe speeches of Ihe
reformers, it was evident that the spirit ol
conoclasilcism prevailed' ainung Hiern all.
They agreed totear society to pitees; but no
wo could agree how* it should be reconstruct?
ed. The wildest of these howling ldiols-wus
kendell Phillips, the most brilliant orator ol
.he invective school, and the cleverest epl
;ramalistln Uie North, but a> man without a
?ingle practical Idea In his brain, ?e lec
ufed before the convention on Hie most effl?
uent method ol putting duwil Hie Ku
\ltix-a subject, quite lureign to the mat?
ers which oalied tho Labor Reformers
.ogether. Hisp?an is to single out the most
:on*plcuGU3 of the ex-Coufederate generals
ind hang them. He said Buller bad given
his advice lo (Irani, and unless Hie President
'ullowed '&,'the Democrat? would carry Hie
next Presidential election, and Hie Northern
Radicals would be forced to revolt to save tJie
?use ol liberty ou luis continent Phillips
ilso predicted the insurrection of Hie working
Biasses of the'Norih ina few yeats ami the
establishment ot Communism "as iu France,
unless the capitalists consented lu divido more
largely ol their profits with their employees.
He asserted that the Ktt-KInx of thu south
and the bloated capitalists ai, tim Not lit are in
secret alliance to oppress tim Northern labor?
ing man-which is lunacy, even iii" Phillips.
The police have recommenced their mid?
night raids on tho gambling saloons. The
last victim of municipal officii listless is Hie
lashioniible establishment ol' ex-Cuiigivssinan
Morrissey. While some of the most, eminent
merchants, politicians, sporting men and bank
clerks ol' thu metropolis were gathered around
Hie green table Hie other nigl?t, the blue coals
suddenly lilied the room and "gobbled" them*.
They were marched liiruu^lt the streets, to?
gether wilh the card dealers, black wailers
and oilier altadles of the bouse,'to the police
headquarters, where they were accommodated
with ceils iiulll.inornlng. They were arraign?
ed before Justice Dowling at early dawn, aud
gave lu their names as Smith, Brown. Jones,
?c. The ex-Congressmun and his partners
were held tor triai, but the geese-who went tu
be plucked were dismissed by t?>e justice in
ujuple lime lo gel to their desks bet?re Ungi
ness. This descent upon the gaming saloons
is a farce. The police make raids occasionally
as a sop to public dissatlslactlon, bm it is not
probable that : 'ie charge against Morrissey
will be heard ol'again. No doubt Hie same
eminent bankers and sporting men will cluster
about his green doth lo-niglit as usual. There
ls u larger and handsomer gambling place"
known as Chamberlain'*, near the Fil I ii
Avenue Hotel, which is tu be advertised next
y Hie police.
The interest which thc element-of mystery
lends to any story has hud another marked ex?
emplification in the case ot ihe young woman
who killed herself at the Steven - House, lust
week. Over thirty thousand people nave visited
the Morgue lu view the body-probably not an
hundred ul' whom veut fur any oilier motive
save the gratification o? curiosity. Tho ladv,
who was tall ?nd bemiliml and" dressed ex?
quisitely in rich dut liing, entered the Slovens
House on Mouday afternoon, with a satchel in
her hand, and asked for a room, ihe rent of
whicn sin; paid in advance, and caused her
name tu be registered as Mrs. Kale Ii. Harring?
ton. On Tuesday uiu-rnoon she was luinnl
dead iu her bed, and on her table was a note
recording the manner of her suicide. Sim
simply said she. hart no friends, and ' wished io
live no trouble, and Would nut "luann Hie
oom" aller she had gone. Her beauty, the
evidences ol refinement in her person und
:lotlilng. and th . utter absence'ol' any clue to
1er real name or character, excited the most
videsprcad interest in lier. As usual In the
:a?es of ihe unknown dead, the b0'.iy was
aken to the Morgue, to be exposed to public
lew fur a few days, for iucleniification.
Since Wednesday last the unfortunate lady ,
as been lying on the marble slab in Hie t
torgue, sirinped ol lier garment?, and cover- :
ed from her bosom to her knees with rough
tarpaulin, her long dark hair wet with the Jet
of cold water, whieh is always falling upon
her forehead. On a chair close by are her
clothing, her little ornaments and trinkets,
and all that she had with her when she died.
Notwithstanding the publicity which her case
has had, and though a week has elapsed, no
one has come forward who recognizes the
face, and the police have had no letters of in?
quiry from any part ol the country. Has any
one missed a wire or sister ? It ls dreadful to
think of-tliis delicate giri, with some great
frief upon her, coming to this city and killing
erself in a hotel, without leaving a trace of
herself behind. The impression is that the
name is assumed, and that sh? came from a
distance. A charitable gentleman bas offered
to assume the expense of giving the body re?
spectable sepulture at one of the cemeteries,
and the police have accepted the offer. Usu?
ally the last journey from the Morgue is over

Lile in the South is supposed to be illustra?
ted nightly on the boards of Niblo's theatre.
Mr. Chanfran has a new realistic drama, en?
titled "Kit," the action of which is in the
Southern States. I am sorry to say that if any
inquiring Yankee gets his noUons of Southern
customs and character from a study of the
piece at Niblo, he will have spent his dollar in
vain. The* drama.ra provided with a game ol
draw poker-and a barroom "difficulty," and
winds up with 2. duel with bowie knives.
