REGULATING PILOTAGE.-A bil now before
the Legislature authorizes the Governor to
appoint separate boards of pilot commission?

number two nautical men, and form an ex?
amining board. Apprentices are to be taken
by full branch pilots only. They must serve
three years for a nine foot, two years more
for a twelve foot, and two years more before
they can become f?ll branch pilots. Pilots
are to give bond, and on trial before i he com?
missioners may be adjudged, on ?pod cause,
to have forfeited their license. No pilot ls to
absent himself from his port, hire out his
boat, unless he substitutes another, HOT em?
ploy another pilot whose license hos been
taken away. Pilots are directed to oiler their
services to the vessels nearest the bar, and to
bring vessels from infected ports to the Quar?
antine ground. The pilot ground ls made to
extend thirty miles eastward, southward and
westward, and every pilot who brings la a
vessel has the exclusive right of carrying her
out. It is made the duty'of the harbormaster
to keep a complete register of the licenses of
the pilots of his harbor, and of the commis?
sioners to examine Into all causes of disaster.
The members of the board hold their offices
for two years unless removed by the Gov?
ernor, and the act does not interfere with ihe
rights and privileges of pilots under their pre?
sent licenses, but after its pas'age they are to
be subject to all of its provisions.
HOMICIDE ON JOHN'S ISLAND.
Daniel McNeill, colored, from Elisio Is?
land, was brought to the city yesterday morn?
ing under arrest, charged with shooting a
colored man named Prince Graham last Satur?
day night, on John's Island. From the evi?
dence given beiore Trial Justice Magrath,
who Investigated the oasev it seems that Mc?
Neill had como over from Eilsto with the in?
tention ol shooting a man who had seduced
his daughter, and had lain in walt with a
double-barrelled gun by the side of a small
foot-path leading to the plantation of Dr. W.
S. Whaley, near the John's Island Ferry.
Graham had been In the store on the place af
a late hour on Saturday night ind lefc to go
home. Nest morning he was found lying
across the foot-path, shot through the head
and apparently dying. The gun had
apparently been discharged but a very short
distance lrom the wounded mah, nnd its con?
tents entered the left temple, making athole
about an inch and a quarter in diameter, and
came out at the back ol the head, about two
inches behind the left ear. Notwitbsiandlr.|
this fearful wound, the sufferer was still alive,
though In an unconscious state, when the offi?
cer left for the t city with bis prisoner. To
make matters worse, it now appears from the
admissions of McNeill, that he shot the wrong
man, and does not know Graham at all. He
was committed io Jail until this morning,
when the case will receive further Investiga?
tion. It is impossible that Graham can sur?
vive his wounds.
