-A correspondent of the London Telegraph
draws a lively picture of the social condition ol
Parla at the present moment, by which lt
seems that lt is not only the e*.?rnal appear?
ance of the city that is being so rapidly re?
juvenated, but the people also are already
assuming the '.ante-beliurn"gayety and joviali?
ty. Day cj day the number of persons who
"usually ?'ve there, and nearly as many more
who come from afar off, are flocking to town
and Betti! nc themselves down as of old; taking
to all their iormer occupations; doing but i ness
and killing time in that wonderful manner fuir
which Parisians have been celebrated lime out
of mind. According to the correspondent,
Paris was never I more flourishing than now,
and the tradesmen are literally "full ol bu?l
ness." The , workmen-masons, carpenters,
smiths, tinmen, glaziers, painters, printers,
tailors, shoemakers and the rest-were never
so well off before. What between some 10,000
of their fellow craftsmen killed at the taking
of Paris, 20,000 who are st 111 prisoners, and
40,000 German workmen who left Paris at the
commencement of the war and have not yet
returned, there are now at least "0,000 fewer
pairs of hands In the city than lhere were last
year. The consequence is that workmen now
get whatever wages they choose lo ask. Rents
have not risen much, and alihough ihe ptice
ol provisions ls bi^h, more meat and vegeta?
bles are consumed thau formerly. As a corol?
lary, the populace \m contented and orderly,
and the police say tha beyond a rare wineshop
dispute, or ll?e dlsiraeiion of having occa?
sionally to bunt up a Communist, they have
really nothirg to do.
-The following was the sentence passed on
Saturday upon HawUins, the polygamist, by
Chief Justice McKean, in EaU Lake Cuy:
"Thomas Hav kins, I am sorry for you, very
sorry; you may not think so now, but I snail
try to makf you think so by Hie mercy which
I shall show you. You came Iron England to
this country with the wife or your youth; fur
many yeATS you were a kind husband and a
kind falber. At length, however, tbe evil
spirit of polygamy templed and possessed
you. Th.m happiness departed from your
household, and DOW, by the complaint of your
faithful wile aa * the veidlci of a law-abiding
I Jury, you Btand at the bar as a convicted crim?
inal. Tte law gives me a large discretionary
power io passing sentence upon you. I might
both fine and Imprison you, or I might im?
prison you twenty years and fine you $10,000.
I cannot imprison you for less than three
years, nor fine you less than $300. It ls right
that you should be fined, among other
reasons to help to delray the expenses
of enforcing the laws ; but my ex?
perience in Utah has been such, that were I
to fine you only, I am satisfied the fine would
be paid out ol other funds than yours; and you
would go free, absolutely free from all punish?
ment, and then those men who mislead the
people would make thousands of others be?
lieve that God had sent the money to pay the
fine; that God Lad prevented the court-room
from sending you to prison; that by a miracle
you had been rescued from the authorities of
the United States. I must look to it that my
[judgment gives no aid or comfort to such men;
I must look to it that my Judgment be not so
severe as to seem vindictive, and not so light
as to seem to trifle with justice. I will say
here and now that, whenever your good be?
havior and the public good shall justify me in
doing so, I will gladly recommend that you be
pardoned. The judgment of tbe court is, that
you be fined $500, and that you be imprisoned
at bard labor for the term of three years."
Contrary to all expectations, there was little
or no excitement in the court-room. The at?
tendance was large, but generally all main?
tained a proper decorum. Notice of an appeal
to the Supreme Court was given by the prison?
Thc .Municipal Change.
The installation of the Mayor and Alder?
men elect will take place at the City Hall, at
12 o'clock to-day, and the Executive Com
mittee of the Citizens' Party request that
there be no public demonstration on that
occasion. It is desired that the installation
be a purely formal affair, and that all Bhow
of exultation be avoided.
?p **et *ne *?overnor Speak.
It has always been the practice in this
State to pay tho taxes for a given year in
the year following; the taxes for 1870, for
example, being payable in 1871. At the
last session of the General Assembly, how
eve;, the period of collection was changed
so <iz lc make the taxes of both 1870 and
1871 payable during the present year. The
effect of snch a change could not fall to be
disastrous in the extrema For the year
1870 the State tax, due and payable last
spring, was nine mills on the dollar. For
the year 1871 the State tax, due and pay?
able, under the new plan, this present month,
is seven mills on the dollar. The tax of nine
mills (1870) amounts to $1,647,000, and the
tax of seven mills (1871) to $1,281,000,
making a total tax, to be paid in the year,
of $2,928,000; an amount more than seven
times as great as the State tax before the
W?r, But, in addition to the State tax, there
ls the county tax, which ie payable at the
same Lime, The county taxation for 1870
amounts to $618,047, and for 1871 to
OOO. Adding the several taxes we find that
Ihe people were called upon to pay, this |
y ear, the following amounts ;
btote tax, 1870.$1,647,000 |
State tax, 1871. 1,281,000
County tax, 1870. 618,047 (
County tax, 1871. 549,00-" ,
And even this amount is exclusive of the
joli-tax of one dollar, which adds $300,000
.o the general estimate. It must be remeni
lered, besides, that all real and personal
properly in South Carolina is taxed at least
.ts fall market value, and that the taxable
rwoperty of the State is largely reduced in
dinount by 'v'ae consequences of tbe war. Iu
Jther words, while the value of the property
af the people of the State has sunk from
3489,000,000, in 1860, to $183,000,000, in
1870, the amount to be raised by taxation in
one year is increased from $400,000 to $4,
The publication of this unvarnished str^e
ment in THE NEWS, last March, gave dee to
a discussion in which nearly every journal in
this State tcok part. The general decision
was that the payment of four million dollars
IQ taxes, in one year, would reduce to beg?
gary an already Impoverished people. The
circumstance that the taxpayers, being nearly
exclusively whites, were without representa?
tion in the Legislature whose members squan?
dered tbe public moneys, and imposed taxes
to defray their own extravagant appropri?
ations, a ided fuel to the flame, and in a very
short time the white people of the State
were prepared to oiler a united moral resist?
ance to the collection of a tax so heavy as
to be tantamount, in many cases, to confis?
/ The proposed double-tax of four million
dollars, together with the large increase in
the State debt, led to the holding of public
meetings in Charleston, which meetings re?
sulted in the assembling of tbe T^xmy^rs'
Convention last May.r This body, comjT?sed
or men 6T mtelligence and position, r^u??1?.
ered the question maturely, had appointed a
special committee to Confer with the Gover?
nor of the State in relation to the postpone?
ment of the collection of the tax for 1871,
made due in November, 1871, but which,
under the old law, would have been collectable
io March, 1872. The committee submitted
the following report, which was adopted :
That Impressed with the conation (under
the peculiar circumstance!* ot the case, and In
view ot the fact mat the people of the 8tate
are thus called upon to pay the laxes for two
aeparate years in one,) of the justice of the
measure o? relief proposed, they have had an
Interview with the Governor, who has autho?
rized them to sta'e to the Convention, that
while the various offices will be open in No?
vember lor the reception of the taxes at that
time, from such of the citizens as may be then
prepared to pay them, yet that the period for
'heir payment will be extended to the lat of]
Murch, 1782, within which lime, if payment i's
made, no penalty will ar -lie.
' In the 3ame Convention, the Committee of
Eleven, of which General M. C. Butler was
chairman, reported, also, that they had
urged "the inability of the people, after
.paying the taxes now being collected, to
'pay a second tax in November next," and
that the Governor said, in reply, that "it
"had been represented to him by well
"informed citizens in several parts of the
"State that for a large clas3 of citizens,
"whose taxes were small in amount, the
"month of November was a more convenient
"time of payment than any other, and he
"hoped that to that class of citizens the col
'lection of the lax at that time would not
"prove oppressive;" but, yielding to the
r. presentations of the Committee, the Gov
t;nor "re ii ested th tm to report to thc Con
"vention that be would authorize the Comp
"troller io suspend the collection of taxes in
"all cases where the payment thereof was
"inconvenient to the taxpayers-that this
"postponement should extend to the 1st
"of March, 1872, and that the penally
"for non-payment should not be enjorced in
We have recapitulated the circumstances
which led to the holding of the Taxpayers'
Convention last May, and have reproduced
the explicit and deliberate promises of Gov?
ernor Scott, because we have reason to be?
lieve that it is not intended to give the tax?
payers the extension ol lime upon which
they counted. We have before us, 1er in
instance, the Columbia Union ol Monday
last, containing the following official notice
OFFICE TREASURER RICHLAND COUNTY, )
COLUMBIA, October 20, 1871. j
The books of the Treasurer of Richland
County will be opened on the 20th day of No?
vember, 1871, for the receipt of taxes due the
State and County for the year 1871.
The penalty ot twenty per cent., provided by
law, will be added to all taxes remaining un?
paid on the 15th day of January, 1872.
The rate of taxation for the year 1871 is as
follows, viz :
State tax per centum. .. 7 mills
County tax per centum. 3 mills
Poll tax per capita.tl
C. li. BALDWIK,
Treasurer Richland County.
Mr. Treasurer Baldwin here gives notice
that the penalty provided by law will be
added to all taxes remaining unpaid on the
15th day of January, 1872; while Governor
Scott pledged his honor that the period of
payment should be extended to the 1st of
March, before which time no penalty should
attach. It may be that Mr. Baldwin's notice
is a simple compliance with the letter of the
tax law, and that Governor Scott has not
forgotten what be promised six moDtbs ago.
But the people are becoming uneasy and
suspicious, and it is due to them that they
Bhould know the truth that they may be
ready for the worst. Governor Scott or his
tax officers CUD, at least, relieve the people
from what is a position of painful uncertain?
ty. We hope that this will be done.
The Charleston Election.
[From the Columbia Union.]
We have not seen a respectable Republican
who has endorsed the scheme lately put on
foot in Charleston to defeat the will of the
people. It was one of the lamtist attempts that
ever came to our notice, and we do not wonder
that those engaged in it took pains to burry
back home after the matter was decided
When a Republican gets so far advanced as to
refuse to submit to the decisions ol the ballot
box, the [sooner be goes to some other fold
the better. We believe in contesting elections
where fraud is known te have been practiced,
Out the evidence of that fraud must be adduc?
ed, or the fraud charged at the time of the
election, and not two months after it is over.
[From the Colombia Phoenix.]
In the case of the Charleston city election,
t seems that Judge Graham did not take long
,o come to a d?cision. Messrs. Worthington and
Soge seem to have been promptly "squelch
id." They were snuffed out by the Charles
on lawyers. The array was inspiring. Ex
Ipeaker Simons, ex-Governor Magrath, J. B.
Campbell, Esq., Sandy Brown, Esq., C. H. 81
aonton, Esq., and others, put In an appear
.?ce. Well, Messrs. Worthington and H?ge
rere found utterly unprepared. They were
dipped on Ute Outer skirmish line. Even If
heir case had any merits at all, they J?? not
tave the chance to suggest them. The history
?f law cases never before revealed such an
asy victory. We congratulate the people of
Charleston upon the result, and hope that the
ood old city will improve under the new mu

Have you tried the Good Table Batter I sell at
25 cents per pound ?
Other grocers may endeavor to imitate my
Batter prices only to fail most signally, i^it
be remembered that I am the only grocer in
Charleston who obtains Batter direct from the
New York Dairies, thoa saving two profits, those
of the wholesale and retail jobber.
Have you tried my "Fanqy Chop" Young Hy?
son TEA, generally accorded br all Tea connois?
seurs as the best in this market, and told at the
low price of $1 50 per pound ?
Have yon ever drank a cop of my Douar^rea ?>
Ii you bay each Ten elsewhere, I'd advise yon on
the score of economy to try mme, as I guarantee
it to be all pore Tea, and not the combination of
Tea and foreign mixtures generally sold la thia
market at that price ?
It will be worth the time consumed to call and
examine the varied stock of
GROCERIES, CROCKERY, FRENCH CHINA,
FANCY GOODS, TOYS AND TINWARE,
now la Store, by no means my complete stock,
but still well assorted and quite extensive
It affords me great satisfaction to be able to
state that, while a few storekeepers make a cer?
tain article a so-called specialty, and offer it at
low figures, I endeavor to make a tpecialty of
every thing in my stock la the matter of quality
and cheapness, and thus stand a better chance of
affording satisfaction generally.
A few words to the wise should be sufficient.
