Exciting Scenes at the City Hall-T. J.

Citizen Badly Cat-Tue Murderous At?
tack of Monday-Outrageons Behavior
Of the Torchlight Procession- The
Total Registered Vote.
The city was comparatively quiet yesterday,
ana, as the white citizens assembled at the pol.s
in considerable force, the Radicals, for the most
part, were on their good behavior. Deep indigna?
tion waa excited by the report or the deviltries
of thc torchlight procession or Monday, printed
in yesterday's NEWS, and both native and adopt?
ed citizens vowed that they would, at the polls
to-day, stop the Pillsbury Ring or the powers
which they exercise to the detriment of the wholi
people. The result or the registration was re?
garded as highly favorable to the cause of good
government, lt is conceded on all sides that
vigorous and steady work.to-day will secare the
triumph of the Citizens' parr.
ALMOST A FICHT IN THE CITY HALL.
Profiting by the experience of tbe preceding
day, the working committee of Ward 1 turned ont
In numbera, and at an early hour the City Hall,
where the registration was going on, was Ailed
Vtlr yoong men standing and sitting quietly
?.round. Things looked threatening, but all pas?
ed "off quietly nntll about 12 o'clock, when a sea?
faring white man presented himself for registra?
tion. Thomas Jefferson Mackey, the disinterested,
immediately challenged the registration, as he
was in the habit of doing every.other about which ,
he did not himself know all the facts. The candi?
date atated that he plied his trade between this
port and Wilmington, bad paid reu t here for three
years, and had a family In the city. Upon this
one of the managers proposed to allow him to
register. The disinterested here got furious and
denounced the family or .the candidate for regis?
tration in the coarsest terms, and putting on his
fiercest look tried to make capital with
his party by acensing the Citizens' party
of the perpetration of all or the frauda
In registration. One of the managers calmly
told him this was not so, and suggested that the
Rad . ca is were to be blamed In almost every In?
stance for Illegal registrations. The Tex m
Ranger tried another bluff, and wound up an In.
Oammatory harangue with, "It ia' you white
scoundrels who flogged and lacerated the bare
backs or negro slaves that caused thia trouble."
mis was too ninon for flesh and bl jod to bear,
and Mr. Moses Levy, jumping np, siid to the
Mexican hero: '-Yon liar; you d-ti lying puppy,"
and "went tor that heatben Chi ee." A tremen?
dous row ensued, the negroes outside of the rail
big y e ling out, "Stand up to him T. J., wewillback
you;" but, unsustatned by morphine, Bombastes
was unequal to the fray, and executed a flank
movement ont ol the row in a manner most
creditable to his prudence. The confusion lasted
Tor a few minutes, and waa considerably increased
by the new special police, who knew nothing or
?heir duty, and ran around brandishing their
:lnba with all the symptoms of helpless insanity,
rte managers did their utmost to.atop the dis
inrbance, and too much credit cannot be.given to
oieutenant J, J. Young, whose prompt action did
nuch toward restoring quiet in the hall.
RIOT is FRONT OP THE G CAB ono us 2.
About half-past 7 o'clock in the evening, one or
he moat serious riots which occurred during the
lay originated In iront or the Guardhouse, in
Broad street Toe crowd, which waa compoaed
neatly of colored mer, were highly excited over |
he arrest or one of their number, when an alter?
ation occurred between two white men. As
me of them rushed apon tue other, a negro
fuck hin' In the back part or the head, and the
.low p rec pl tated the riot. The crowd surged
ogether, and awayed to and fro, cursing and
ellln?, ant', striking ont wildly and indlscrlml
lately. The police were] convenient, and, hurry -
og oat, seized several ot the. articlpan ts. These
rere pulled towards and into the large iron gate
f the Guardhouse. The police, however, were
nable to close the gates against the crowd, and
hey rushed in. A violent struggle now ensued
tat within the gate, and, as thc dense masa
loved ab mt, the lampshades quivered, and the
alustrarte of the office threatened each moment
3 be broken down. By degrees, the disturbance
;rew less, and, as noone knew what they were
ghtlng about, the participante soon gave np the
port. Oae co'oed policeman was severely cut
i the neck and head, and one colored citizen
ras wounded In the head with a brick.

LA COMMUNE IN CHARLESTON. J
The half or the ??atemptlble outragea com- t
kitted during the Radical saturnalia of M J nd ay t
Ight are not yet told. The reckless band of J
owling negroes Who made that flight hideous .
nd memorable missed no opportunity or vent- i
lg, under the cowardly cover or the certainty or J
on-ldentincatlon iii the mob, every sort of petty e
pito against their political opponents, and. In- t
eed, against every one whose appearance or 1
arroaudings bore evidence of prosperity. The
lob seemed actuated by the same Illogical
granan fury that recently Impelled La
ommune of unhappy Paris, and filled
tat Qaeen City of the world with
ie abomin?t iou of desolation. Only one notlcea
le difference exists between the two kinds or t
reconcilable*. The Paris mob was an emption 1
gainst the local and national authority, while e
ie Charleston rioters are not only encouraged, f
at organized and led by the very officials whose t
olees, and whose acts, should be directed on the ^
de of repression of violence and conservation or c
?ace. Of the incidental outrages remaining to i
; chronicled, tbe following are flt examples:
Ighted torches were hurled Into the open win- i
Dws or a house on Rutledge avenue, and another i
a Calhoun street; ladles In their residences, all t
long the line or march, were Batu: ed s
Ita torrents of profanity, mixed with t
ie most vulgar ribaldry, and on Rutledge c
venue brickbats and other missiles were hurled 1
moog the gronps of ladles on the piazzas and at c
ie doors and windows. The Board of Trade I
>oms were also attacked with a shower of mis- c
les, which bad the effect of injuring an unoffen d . s
ig colored man. While the procession was t
[arching up Broad 6treet, Mr. W. P. Poulnot, a s
rlvate watchman, was strack a terrible blow in i
ie abdomen with a club In the hands of one of r
ie processionists, and had barely time to escape
Ith his life from tbe attacks of the mob. I
AN EMBUTE IN COLUMBUS STREET. t
The registration at the polling place in Ward 7 S
rogressed quietly until about ten o'clock, when c
[r. Calvert, a white man, living In Hanover c
ireet, came forward to register. The members c
f the Citizens' party present all knew him, as t
ld also the Radical challenging committee, bnt t
e was challenged by a colore J outsider, and one
ian frota each committee was sent with him to t
13 residence to allow him to verily hts statement, v
m their return and favorable report he was al- i
?wed to register, and had loft the place, when s
he Radicals, who had congiegated outside, and t
rcrc angry at-having been foiled in their at
smp*. to cheat him out of his vote, seeing ba: few s
I waite men present, rushed ripon Calvert, insult?
ing and assailing him. An alarm was given, ?nd
the citizens rallied, and three minutes thereafter
the disturbance was over and the rioters had lied.
.Tney were identified by Radical managera aa
emiasaties from Warda l and 2, who had evident?
ly come np for the purpose of causing trouble.
Tbe policemen present acted welland the dla
tnrbancea ended without a ahot being fired or a
knife used, a few well directed jlowa with na?
ture's weapons being all tba" passed.
DONNYBROOK FAIR IN WARD 8.
The first precinct or the eighth ward was not
by any means as quiet as most or the others, and
early in the morning large groups of men belong?
ing to the opposing parties were gathered about
the poll at the Niagara Engine-house In Sires
street. About o o'clock, a colored-candidate for
registration was challenged by Mr. M. Hogan,
who recognized him aa one cf the hands working
at a certain mill across the river in St. Thomas.
The fellow, with a huge stick, backed out into the
street, shouting, "Who ls Hogan anyhow," and
calling him a "Irish honad." This was too
much, and Hogan jumped into ?he street and
rushed at the negro. The friends of both parties
crowded in, and for a time bloody work seemed
Imminent. The efforts of the peacemakers, how?
ever, succeeded, and the two principals in the
disturbance were arrested, to be released around
the corner. No deadly weapons were used, and
nobody waa hurt.
At the Congress street precinct all waa quiet
Registration went on slowly,'and the managers
amused themselves at intervals with eating']
MIND YOUR TICKETS.

TBK BALLOT BOX.
These old-time ; affairs have been once more
pulled , but-from the dusty corner In the Court?
house, where they have lain since the Reform
campaign, and were yesterday distributed among
the managers for duty t?-day. Each one of them
was locked and the key delivered to the manager.
The slit In the top was not covered with paper,
but lt waa left for the managers to open the box
and see that lt ls empty when the voting begluB.
When the polia are dosed, they will be brought to
the Courthouse and deposited in 1 he court-rojm

About one hundred and fifty gentlemen assem
iled in response to thia call, among whom were
?eluded many of the most reputable and influ?
ential merchants of the city, and the spirit manl
ested during the meeting Indicated a determtna
ton to exhaust every method to aecure to all the

?rations, their full rights during the registry and

The meeting was called to order by Hon. Isaac
v. Hayne, Mr. George S. Holmea waa chosen Bec
-etary, and tne objects of the meeting explained
>y Major T. G. Barker. He said that la view of the
erlous crisis that appeared impending it was

ouduct as might nnder any circumstances result

After a few remarks from Colonel Lord, Mr.
jonisD. De Saussure suggested that an application
ie made to the commanding officer of the United
?tates troops at thia post for detachments of his
ommand, to be stationed at such points through
mt the city as would best insure the preservation
ir order, and expressed his entire confidence in
he desire of the commandant to aid in the main
enance of peace.
A auggestlon was made to communicate by
elegraph with Governor Scott to secure his lnter
enilonto preserve the peace; but it waaan
lounced that the Governor had left the State and
,one for a visit to Ohio, being therefore Inaccesl
Colonel W. L. Trenholm said that he under?
took that General Anderson, the adjutant and
inspector general of the State, was in the city,
and he would therefore be a proper officer to
consnlt with in the existing emergency. He
therefore proposed that a committee be appointed
for-the porp032 bf consoltlng w:tu the adjutant'
general the United states commander, And the
Mayor, and offered the following resolutions to
Resolved, That a delegation of twelve gentle?
men be ur pom ted by the chal? to call npon the
constituted authorities Immediately, and demand,
In the name of the people of Charleston, ample
protection In the exercise of all their rights of
citizenship; and to that end to request that a
sufficient force Of police and United Sutes troops
be at once sent to the polls, and kept there until
the close of the election.
Resolved, That the delegation proceed without
delay to 'confer with the Mayor of this city, the
adjutant and Inspector-general of the State, and
the officer commanding the United States troops
at this point, and urge upon them their imme?
diate action, and tender, to them the moral and,
If necessary, the physical snpport of al: the
young men in the city.
These resolutions being adopted, the following
committee was appointed by the chair-the chair
being, on motion, added thereto : Hon. George A.

It was further resolved to Issie a notice re?
questing the presidents of the -variosB city clubs
to hold meetings last evening, in their respective

might be rendered aece-sar/, and a recess was
taken until 3 o'clock P. M., pending the report of
the committee of consultation.
. EVENING 8E33ION. .
The meeting reassembled at 3 P. M., to receive
the report of the committee appointed In the
The chairman, Colonel Hayne, Informed the
meeting that the committee had discharged their
duty and were still in conference with Mayor
Pillsbury, General Anderson, A. and 1. G., and
General Getty, the United States commandant.
The general plan of action had been determined
on, bnt the details were not yet fully adjusted.
Major T. G. Barker then submitted the following
Resoled, That all good citizens and property
holders are requested to close their places or bu?
siness, and to lend their presence at .the polls In
their respective wards, during the hours of elec?
tion, on the day or election, prepared to preserve
the-peace, and to romain until the ballots are put
m a place or security.
Mr. JVM. Rhett opposed the resole.tlon upon the
ground that as United States troops were to be
stationed at the precincts, lt was useless lor the
citizens to go there. He thonght that the white
people were quite strong enongh to defend the
voters and the ballots, and he did not approve of
calling in the soldiers to discharge what was the
plain duty of the citizens.
After some explanatory remarks by Mr. Geo. S.
Cameron and Colonel McUrady, the resolntion
The Hon. G. A. Trenholm, chairman of the com?
mittee to confer with the authorities, was now
present, and submitted the following report :
The committee have had an interview with the
Mayor, and with General Anderson and General
Getty. The latter officer assured the committee
that a detachment of United States soldiers,
ranging in number from three to six as required,
would be stationed at each pollinj precinct du?
ring the time that the polls remained open. The
Mayor had promised that he would appoint last
night a body of one hundred.and twenty-five
white special constables or police, (he had ap?
pointed one hundred aRd twenty-five in the
morning, or whom only eight or ten were whites)
who should give authority to the soldiers to in?
terfere in case or riot. Both Generals Getty and
Anderson met with alacrity the proposition of the
committee, and lt was due to the Mayor to say
that he seemed disposed to go as rar aa he could
In the same direction. The committee impressed
upon the authorities the fact that they sought the
advantage or no political party, that they were
actuated by no animosity towards say class or
people,, and that their true object was the pre.
vention ot disorder and the maintenance of
peace. They did not ask for protection. They .
only asked the co-operation of the Municipal,
State and Federal authorities in an effort to avoid
the occasion of riot. The authorities appeared to
be strack by this statement, and from the first
there was na discussion except or details. Gene?
ral Getty said that his artillery should be ready
for action, and that a section, If desired,-could be
stationed In the City Square. The committee did.
not think this necessary. All that they wanted
was i he presence at the polls or men who bore
the emblems of authority, which every one could
recognize, and who would be prepared to put
down any disturbance. The nnmber of soldiers
detailed for each ward would be determined on
at once, and the Mayor had promisedHo appoint,
without delay, the white special police.
The report of Mr. Trenholm was accepted, and
the meeting, on motion, adjourned sine die.
i The meeting altogether was one of the utmost
significance, and Its result shows plainly that
the citizens of Charleston will to-day be protected
at all hazards lu the peaceable exercise of their
right ol suffrage.
FINAL A KEAN OEM SST WITS MAYOR PILLS ?UR Y .
A sub-committee or citizens met Mayor Pills?
bury and General Anderson, by appointment, at
s P. M. They agreed, after a free taut, npon the
following arrangement : That as General Getty
bad promised to station a squad af United States
soldiers at each precinct, no' special policemen
should be allowed on duty, at any point,.to-day
One deputy sherill for each precinct should be
appointed by the sheriff from the police force,
and none but the regular police force should be
"WHO WOULD BE FREE, themselves must
strike the blow." An opportunity to free this
city from Radical misrule ls offered to-day, and
may not occur again for many y?ars. -?
A DOUBLE DUTY.-Yesterday's registration
completes the assurance or the possibility of a vic?
tory to-day if every mao will come to the poUi to
vote and stay there to discourage, by hts pres
ance, the first Indication of turbulence. There IS
a double duty lu Charleston citizenship to-day.
Let it be performed.
'^LKT UB HAVE PEACE."-And the only way
to insure n to-day win be to make such prepara?
tions that lt can, If need be, be enforced.
