dealts from smail-pox iu Philadelphia lost
week-an increase of eighty ov the previous
week. The number of new c .?es was three
hundred less than ihe week b.fore.
-We quote from a Philadelphia paper :
".Chicago was probably the most populous city
In the world previous to the i onflagraiion.
Some fourteen millions of ter '.lesiitute cul?
lens' have passed through this cit v in the past
three weeks. Yen can't throw a cit in any di?

extreme Southern Unionists are ic la vor of
such a course."
-Gold declined In New York yesterday to j
9j, which ls i per cent, below the lowest point
ever reached elnce the ck se of the war. The
decline ls accounted for by the refunding of
two hundred millions of the public debt, by
which,according to otbie reports Irom London,
no disturbance was created in the English I
money market. Oa the contrary, the lettie-1
ment having been an ti dp ned, the loan ad?

upon which were fought the ant and second
battles ot Manassas. When the war commenc?
ed it was under a high sw of improvement,
and the dwelling hons? upon lt was one of the
finest In this section cf the State, but that
scourge devastated it, and the open fields and
young pines and shattered mansion a l now
bear evidence to the bloody conflicts of which
it was the scene.
-The New York papers notice a meeting
which took place in that eily Friday evening
of about one hundred infidels and freethink?
ers, their purpose being to initiate a move- j
m -nt looking to the promulgation and advo
cacy Of freethinklnxdoctrines throughout the
United States by s'mllar agencies to ihoee em
ployed by religionists. They determined to
Inaugurate an aggressive policy, and to begin
by circulating Infidel tracts by the thousand,
providing for lectures and meetings, and the I
equipment of treethinklng missionaries to be
sent n all parts of the Union to estab isb free
thinking clubs. Addresses were made advo- j
eating an aggressive attitude on the part cf I
freethinkers, and the promulgation of their
doctrines by every means In their power, in-1

aro picturesque and-as the ladies say-lovely.
The coming fashion of pantaloons for gentle?
men ls to be pictorial. Some represent a
quiet landscape in thu country, wah callie
and sheep browsing near bubbling streams
and woody recesses; others detail the exciting
and varied scenes of the battle-field; others
the exhilarating beauties of the ball-room,
with ladies In the most bewitching costumes I
and radiant graces, and the blonde-haired
Adonises and dark eyed Apolles also; and still
others-for very fast young men-are re- I
splendent with tbe exuberant charms of the
ballet queens and thegodesses of opera bouffe.
Tho ladies will shortly find much to admire
aboui, the gentlemen's legs. This will be some
sort of compensation to the opposite sex,
whose pedals have been a sour .e of observa-1
lion to the m3ie genus since'the days of Adam."
-Relative to the lengh or the Tichborne
ease, the London Daly News ot November
16th says: 'The hearing of the Tichborne
case was again proceeded with yesterday.
The witnesses called were Mrs. Ann Noble,
wife of the tarra bailiff a* Tichborne; Mr.
Henry Noble, her husband ; the B-v. Thomas
AM rick, a Catholic priest in Bristol, who lat
known Roger Tichborne many years ago. ahd
was with him ai Stonyhu-s ; M s. E?eaLor
Smith, whose Ute husband was a bailiff to a
former baronet;-Ur. James Howleston, who
had been acquainted with Roger in his eat lier
1 years; Mr. William Cooper, a resident at Al?
resford, and Mr. William Bailey, landlord of
the Anchor Ion, Rockley. The whole of these
swore pcslilvely to the identIfl;ation of the
claimant as Roger Tichborne. Duriog the
day, in answer io a question from the judge,
Sergeant Balantine Eaid he could not say
when this class of witnesses would be exhaust?
ed. It was impossible for him to limit his
case, and a? long as he had respectable wit?
nesses as to identify he was bound to call
them. "Then," said the Lord Cfc iel Jus'ice,
'you have no idea when your case will end P
.Not the least,'* replied the learned sergeant.
-Prince Alexis has engaged a new palace
car of lhe Inventor, Mr. PullmriD, (now in

has ensaged it for sixty day?, but will proba?
bly need lt for several months. He will live
in the car, and so generally and sensibly en

agent to Russia and other governments for

Cnet-rtng Xtiva for Charleston.
The South Carolina Railroad Company
have bought a controlling interest in tbe
capital stock of the Macon and Augusta
Railroad Company. This parchase, in con?
nection with Ihe purchase of the Greenville
and Columbia Railroad Company, strength?
ens, in a large measure, the position of the
South Carolina Railroad, and goes a long
way towards making it, what it must be?
come, the master of the situation.
The efforts of different Railroad RiDgs to
cut ofl* Charleston from the interior of the
cotton region, as well as from the upper part
of Sooth Carolina, have been subtle and
persistent. Powerful corporations, repre?
sented by sweet-speaking agents, threatened
to leave the South Carolina Railroad noth?
ing but ?ts local traffic, i\nd to torn Charles?
ton into a fishing village. That they have
failed is due to the sagacity and patient
labor of the President of the South Carolina
Railroad Company, who, with the co-opera?
tion of his Directors, bas planned and car?
ried Into execution the boldest stroke of j
strategy known ?D oar railroad hi Sry. And
we are satisfied that the benefit to Charles?
ton will be os great as the benefit lo the
South Carolina Railroad. That railroad
might, indeed, live without Charleston ; but
Charleston would be iii a bad way without
the far-reaching arms of our great trank
line. Within two or three weeks, President
Magrath hos brought to a successful conclu?
sion two negotiations which remove all
doubt as to the future greatness of Charles?
ton, and which insure, at the same time, the
substantial success of bis company. This is
the best possible answer to the quid nuncs
who, during six trying years, have given the
Socth Carolina Railroad no othep encourage?
ment than fault-finding and abase.
We hope that the Sooth Carolina Railroad
Company will not tire of well-doing. Tbey
now reach to the heart of the cotton coun?
try and to the foot of the B.tte Ridge. Let'
them not say bait uniil they cross the bor?
ders of Alabama, and, besides, cut their way
to the great commercial cilies of the West.
The prospect brightens ! We must smash
tbe Columbia Ring, secure a decent govern?
ment, nod Hen-Ho! for o population of
One Hundred Thousand for the new Charles?
ton, the foremost seaport of the South.
The Fiscal Condition of Charit (ton
The Grand Jury for Charleston County,
in their presentment to the Court o? Gen?
eral Sessions, printed in THE NEWS of yes?
terday, direct the attention of the people to
the miserable condition of the financial af?
fairs of the connty. They show thut thu
debt of the county is as follows:
County checks issued prior to July,
Vouchers of county commissioners,
not audited. 65,000
Sundry outstanding claims. 30,000
There are no funds in the county treasury,
and claims against the connty are bought
np by speculators, from needy holders, at
from twenty to ?fty per cent, discount. Toe
income of the county for the current fiscal
year Is not expected to exceed $100,000,
which sum, at the old rate of expenditure,
will not more than pay ihe ordinary ex?
penses, exclusive of the above-mentioned
debt of $145,000.
The assessed value of the taxable prop?
erty, real and personal, in Charleston Coun?
ty wa?, in 1869,530,511,137, and in 1870,
S47.316.445. The taxe3 authorized to bc
levied for county purposes are a? followe :
December 22, 18C9, for fiscal year 1SG9,
3 mills; December 23, 1870, for liscol year
1870, 3 mills; March 7, 1S71, for fiscal year
1871, 3 mills-the tux for 1869 being paya?
ble and due by March 1, 1S70, ihe tax for
1870 by March 1, 1871, and the tax for 1871
by January 15, 1872. The amount of the
county tax, apon ihe assessed values, is as
1869 ...3 mills on $39,511.137, or... .$11R,533
1870... .3 .m:lls on 47.310,445. or.... 141,949
1871....3 mills on 47 316,445, or.... 141,919
Taxes for three yea payable be?
tween January, 1870, and January,
We have made no change in the assess?
ment for the year 1871, the State Comp?
troller not having submitted his report for
that year. It is enough to know lhat the
assessed taxation, for county purposes, due
and payable wilbin two years, la in the
neighborhood of $400,000. The amount of
money actually collected cannot, at present,
be shown, and we are aware that the tax
for 1871 may be paid untilJanuary 15,1872.
But the taxes for 1869 and 1870, amounting
ta $260.482, are long over due. Whatever
has been collected has been spent, and the
county is still in debt to the extent of $145,
000, which is equal to the whole property
tax for 1870. .
The question naturally arises, Where ls
the money gone to? Governor Scott, opon
this point, has given the taxpayers some
valuable information. Io a communication
addressed to the State Senate, under date of
February, 1871, he says that "a perusal o? J
"the county accounts shows that there has
"been drawn from the treasury," for
Main Roads, from August 23,1869, to
October 20, 1870.$ 50,384
Bridges, from September 27, 1869,
to October 3, 1870. 57,841
Public Bandings, from August 20,
1869, to October 17, 1870. 28,679
Constables, from August 31, 1869, to
October 31, 1870. 23,339
Trial Justices, from August 24, 1869,
, to October 29, 1870. 15,527
Sheriff, irom October 13, 1869, to
October 14, 1870. 39,737
Clerk of Court, from August 29, 1869,
to September 22, 1670. 17,734
Coroner, from August 27, 1669, to
October 4, 1870. 5,600
Paid out in fourteen months- $238,841
Well might Governor Scott say that these
amounts were "of startling magnitude."
The figures are tatfeo from the official report
of the County Commissioners, and they show
that the treasurer paid out in fourteen months
a sum nearly equal to the assessed property
tax for 1869 and 1870. Yet the county is
head over ears in debt.
There is another remarkable fact to which
we desire to call attention. According to
the State census of 1869 there are in Charles?
ton County 78S9 whites and 15,871 colored
persons, over twenty-one years of age, who
are, therefore, liable to the poll tax of $1.
But for the fiscal year 1868 the amount of
poll tax assessed was only $3707. The col-1
lections on account of poll tax are as follows :
For 1869.no report
The Grand Jury, however, report that only
one-tenth of the voters pay the poll tax.
There is no difficulty in finding colored vo?
ters on election day, but the county officers
appear to be unable either to assess the poll
tax or to collect it. We are aware that the
poll tax must be applied exclusively to edu?
cational purposes, and does not form a part
of the general fund. But whatever defi?
ciency there may be, on account of the fail?
ure to assess and collect the poll tax, is
made op by general luxation.
-We have given facts which warrant the
public in insisting upon a full exposition of j
the receipts and disbursements by ibe county
officers. But this is not enough. There should
be so strict an observance of the law as will
prevent any maning in debt And, in addi-1
tion, we require such amendments to exist?
ing laws as will reduce the coBt of dieting
prisoners and of the scandalously extrava?
gant Trial Justice system. We think thut a
small committee of responsible citizens could
soon master the situution, ascertain the ex?
tent of our liabilities, and suggest safe?
guards and amendments in the county regu?
lations which the General Assembly might
be willing to adopt.
?X-MATOR Pillsbury, ex-Street Inspector
Jeuks and ex-Colef of Police Hendricks are
busily laying wires for the passage of the
Metropolitan Police bill. The prospective
offices ure already parcelled out, and all the
sore-beads in Columbia are to be provided
for at the expense of this city. Wo do not
think that the bill will pass; although its
wrongfulness and its. injurious character
may, io some quarters, be arguments in Us
favor. _ _
W. J. WHIPPER, "Brigadier-General," &c,
attacked the Governor's message in the
House of Representatives, on Tuesday, and
charged Governor Scott with violating bis
official oath and the Constitution of the
State. Tim Horley, by way of making peace,
suggested that it was not the Governor's
fault if that high official were "incapable of
"telling the truth." But the time has not
come when the public may decide whether
the Bowens, Whippers and Hurleys are in
downright earnest, or only play ing their
parts in the great morai show.
REPRESENTATIVE WILKES, of Anderson,
has introduced a bill io the General Assem?
bly, making ic a misdemeanor for any per?
son to call another "a liar, thief, rogue,
"scoundrel, poltroon, or other similar op?
