-The stone so-called fire-proof buildings in
Chicago were only fire-proof In name. The
material of which most of them were made
was a limestone or marble highly charged
with petroleum. Under a hot sun the smell of
the oil was perceptible. The New York Jour?
nal of Commerce reports an eye-witness of the
Are as saying that he saw the flames cross
streets and lick with long tongues at the stone
buildings opposite. The latter, as they be?
came Intensely heated, emitted jets of gap,
upon which the flames would catch and tbtn
go out again, repeating the operation a nun -
ber of times, when, presto I the stone wou'd
apparently be In flames. Like coal, these
stones were reduced to ashes. Mr. Horace
White, of the Chicago Tribune, in a letter to
the Cincinnati Commercial, writes : "It ls ?s-i
certalned that no stone ever used In the busi?
ness part of the city ls wort'a a larthing in
such a fire." ,.
-A letter from Adjutant-General Gorman,
ot the North Carolina milli i t, gives a history
ol the unsuccessful campaign against the
negro banditti in Robeson County, who have
solong dened both the State and national
authorities. He also gives a description of
the country in which the outlaws live, their
personnel and mode of life. The whole race is
Of mixed origin and ls more or less connected
by blood, and some Ave or six family names j
constitute the majority of the Inhabitants, the
Lowry?, the Oxendlnes and Chavises being
the largest In number. It ls asserted that near?
ly the whole community is in active sympathy
,wUb the outlaws, many through fear, others
through prejudice, and the remainder from
ties ot relationship. Their predatory and law?
less operations are well systematized, and lu
their forays they are assisted by the desolate
and almost Impassable condition of the
swamp and forest land. Finding that he could
not make headway against them, and not be?
ing able to arouse the white citizens from
their despondent apathy and secure their co?
operation, Gormon Anally arranged an inter?
view with the Lowry?, and met them, by
agreement, In a swamp. They said that they
were tired of their present manner of life, and
promised to leave the Uulted States il a free
pardon was given them. Gorman assured
them that they would have a fair trial and
?jood counsel at court, but they would not sur?
render. They say that they will defend them?
selves to the bitter end. TLr. adjutaut-general
adds that he hopes belore long to have the
satisfaction cf announcing ?.he capture of the
-A Washington telegram to the New York
Tribune says : '-The Investigation by the Uul?
ted States Court of Claims into the various
claims against the United States for cotton
seized by the government officers during the
rebellion brings out some remarkable develop?
ments which tend to throw additions' li cht on
the mystery which has surrounded tn.* sale of
cotton by the government agents shortly after
lt was seized from the rebels during the war.
The government realized from Hie sale about
$30,000,000, but the examinations of the gov?
ernment agents' books and other evidence
which has been obtained through the prosecu?
tion of these g)ai ins reveals the fact that the
cotton was wurih over twice that amount.
It appears thal some ot the agents at
New York disposed of the cotton at 29
cents a pound, when its market value
at the time ol the sale was 75 cents per
pound. Some of the agents appear to have
been in collusion with the purchas?
ers, and the poorest kinds ol cotton were
shown as samples of the entire lot held by
the government, the bidders getting lt by this
arrangement at the low figure of twenty-nine
cents per pound, and subsequently selling it
at the market price, thereby securing a hand?
some profit. The claimants, however, refuse
to base their claims at a figure less than its
market value at the time of the sale, and it ls
feared that the government will, in refusing
the money for these cotton seizures, be a con?
siderable loser, especially now that the British
claimants stand a chance bet?re the mixed
commission of being allowed some compensa?
tion for these losses. If ls now known al the
Treasury that several of these cotton agents
delrauded the government Otlt ol' large
amounts of money. The accounts show this,
but what steps the United Stales will take lo
recover Its just dues have not been decided
-The Chicago Times prints a remarkable
Btory, which is credited lo a member ol the
Soci?t? Internationale, whose headquarters
are In Paris, and attempts to prove that the
destructtou of Chicago was the work of Incen?
diaries. The-first organization of the Soci?t?
in Chicago was made about eight months ago,
and when its members found that they could
not accomplish what they desired by peacea?
ble means, the burning or Chicago was sug?
gested. Several attempts were made before
they succeeded. The author ol this story says
that George Francis Train, a member of the
Soci?t? on Sunday evening precediug the fire
uttered these words: "This ls ihe last public
address that will be delivered within these
walls ! A tembl? calamity is impending over
the City of Chicago. More I cannot say; more
I dare not utter !" He adds that "it was well
for Train that he closed as he did, for there
were hali a score of hands grasping hall a
score of pistols that would have check?
ed any further utterance forever." The
author then goes into a history of the
Ure, and asserts that two of the original foun?
ders of the organization in Chicago met death
in the terrible conflagration they had instigat?
ed, and he alone is spared. Seven ol the men
delegated to assist the fire in its progress also
perished miserably, while two others are prob?
ably maimed for life. "As for myself," he
adds, "I have little hope of escaping the ven?
geance of the Internationals.'' In a postscript
he says : "Let me add one word of warning.
Other cities, both in this country and Europe,
have been threatened with fire. The 8ociete
Internationale is implacable."' In printing
this extraordinary statement the Times re?
marks : "Though it appears at first to be utter?
ly romantic and improbable, there are not
wanting confirmatory circumstances. The
original explanation of the origin of the fire
has been conclusively disproven. It can be
attested by every one who listened to Train,
at Farwell Hall, on the night of the fire, that
he used the language recited above, Ac. Lit?
tle doubt remains that, the city was fired in
several different places." The informant, pro?
fessing to be moved by remorse, does not
divulge h:s name.
The New City Government.
The t.' lt mpt of a few disappointed political
adventurers to set aside the Municipal elec?
tion or August last, ha3 completely and
deservedly failed, and we may confidently
hope that DO farther impediment will be
thrown in the way ol the installation of the
Mayor and Aldermen elect. Thia result, the
knowledge of which sped through Charleston
with lightning speed on Saturday night,
must be hailed with deep satisfaction by
every person who has at heart the advance?
ment and the prosperity of the city. We
take thi3 occasion, therefore, to congratu?
late the people on the peaceful victory they
have won-a victory far higher than the
party triumphs which are heralded by peal of
bell and roar of cannon ; for its fruits will be
gathered by the whole community, and even,
in their degree, by the individuals composing
the now shivered Ring.
The application for a writ o? Mandamus,
to compel the acting Board of Aldermen to
receive and consider a protest against the
election of General Wagener and bis alder?
men, was indeed a desperate device. Sev?
eral weeks elapsed before it was even thought
of. And in the face of the notorious facts,
it had no chance of success before ac y judge
mindful of bis official oath and official duty.
The majority for General Wagener and his
Aldermen was nearly eight hundred; their
election bad been formally announced by the
acting Mayor; the overthrow of the corrupt
Ring, who had so long plundered the city,
wa3 the united work of all classes and condi?
tions of men. With a firm faith in the jus?
tice cf their caa;e, the representatives of the
popalar will came before Judge Graham on
Saturday. At the last moment the Ridg
sought, by a devilish trick, to deprive them
of a hearing; bat a timely warning made it
easy to hoist the Ring engineers with their
own petard, and a simp'.e reading of the
answer made on behalf of the people convict?
ed the King of gro33 carelessness as well aa
deliberate tergiversation. Judge Graham
discharged the rule. The Ring were beaten
on the ground of their own choosing. Never
wu3 a cunningly contrived plot against the
public welfare more quickly and decisively
We may expect, then, that the Mayor and
Aldermen elect will take their seats, as re?
quited by law, on Wednesday next. Then
will begin in Charleston a new era-an era
of honesty, economy and intelligence io the
Municipal government, and of activity, en?
terprise and cheerful confidence on the part
of the people. A government like that
with which we have been cursed these three
years, is far more hurtful to a community
than pestilence or war. Others ri3e up to
take the place of the dead. The waste and
ruin of battle may, in time, be repaired.
But an extravagant and ignorant adminis?
tration of public affairs paralyzes the hand
and dulls the brain-ander it, both restora?
tion and improvement are impossible. A
knowledge of the3e truths wa3 forced, by
hard experience, upon this people. They
put politics aside, and chose a government
which well represents every class, and
which all classes may trust. Capital will
no longer fear to abide in Charleston. The
days of insecurity are at an end. Upon the
streets, this day, every eye will be bright
and every form erect. A feeling of sober
thanksgiving will be found io every honest
home. Anti, before many weeks, trade of
all kinds will revive; the wharves will be
piled high with freight ; the stores will be
crowded with customers; the rhythmic fall
oi hammer and the cheerful ring of trowel
will muke music where now are stagnant
pool3 and unsightly ruins. No man 13 so
rich or so poor tnat he will not share iu the
advantages of the blithe and hopeful time
which begins the day after to-morrow.
But, glad as we are, we want no public
rejoicing. It is well enough to shout over
the battles which parties W?D, but we need
no noisy outburst to celebrate the succe33
which our honest citizens have gained. We
hope that there will be no procession, no
parade, no gathering of friends or oppo?
nents on the occasion of the installation.
We have much to do. There is abundant
work before us. And we trust that all our
people will, without exception, attend as
usual to their bu3ine3s, and only show their
gladness by sustaining, in every possible
way, the measures of reform which the new
Council may adopt. The installation '
should be a plain, matter-of fact afluir, with?
out show and without ostentation. And we
believe that our people will consult the
wishes of the Mayor and Aldermen elect, as
well as the highest interests of the city, by
wearing their honors meekly, and avoiding
anything in the nature of procession, sere?
nade, or public merry-making.
Weil Done !
We learn from the Anderson Intelligencer
that a number of influential gentlemen pro?
pose to start a steam cotton manufactory at
Anderson, having a capital stock of $150,
000. A public meeting approved of the
project, and recommend that the organiza?
tion be known as the "People's Manufac
"turing Company;" that subscriptions be
received for thirty days, and that the com?
pany be organized when $75,000 have been
subscribed. Among the promoters of the
enterprise are ColonelJames A. Hoyt, Colo?
nel J. P. Reed, Major John B. Moore, and
B. F. Crayton, Esq. It is, indeed, encour?
aging that, in times like these, any of our
people should be plucky enough, and thrifty
enough, to devote themselves to pushing
forward au extensive industrial undertaking,
involving a large expenditure of capital. All
success lo Anderson !

At the annual meeting of the Columbia
Board of Trade, held last week, speeches
were made by Mr. F. Bash, the president of |
the Greenville aBd Columbia Railroad Com?
pany, and Major Pearce, tho agent of Sena?
tor Sprague, of Rhode Island. Both of the
speakers are Northern Republicans, and,
comparatively, new-comers in South Caro?
lina, but they declared themselves delighted
with the warmth of their reception. Mr.
Bush said, "he felt quite as secare, and
"found life in all respects as agreeable, as it
"could be in Massachusetts." How does this
square with the statements of the anony?
mous correspondent of the New York Times,
who swears that innumerable perils aDd pri?
vations must be faced by any person who
comes to South Carolina, and "attempts to
"live there in opeD, yet unobtrusive, loyalty
