COLLMBIA, Tuesday, December 19.
IQ the Senate to-day a resolution was Intro?
duced to authorize the comptroller-zeneral to
purchase the Spartanburg and Union Railroad.
The nomination of X. T. Spencer as jury oom?
i. mUsiouer, oT Charleston County, was con?
In the House the following bills were passed:
To revive and extend the charter of the Redef
Loan Association of Charleston; to repeal an
act to estab'ish a bureau of agricultural statis?
tic?, and to repeal a joint resolution authoriz?
ing the Governor to purchase two thousand
s'.aud of improved arms with ammunition.
A resolution wa3 passed ordering the Dennis
joint Investigating commiltee oa the finances
to make their report to the House on Friday
next, under penalty of the expulsion of the
members of the committee for coatempt ia
case of failure to present the report.
At t'iree o'clock, the Home reached the con?
sideration ot the resolution introduced yester?
day by Mr. Bowen, that Robert K. Scott, Gov?
ernor of South Carolina, be Impeached of high
crimes and misdemeanors. Bowen took the
amffi ; r ani, lu a speech which occupied two
?w^hours. advocated the resolution. He declared
that he was terribly In earnest, arid meant to
impeach a l the guilty State officials In succes?
sion. Chamberlain, he said, would be spared
for the present, because he wa? engaged in
? prosecuting the Ku-Slux. Bowen charged
that Scou had admitted lo him, when In New
York, that Parker and Klmp*ton were using
$22,030,030 of fra adulent bond9, and that they
had said to him (Scott) that he dared not ex?
pose them because he had shared In the
fraui. Within three days Treasurer Niles G.
Parker had said that the Legislature dared not
open their mouths against the State otho ?als.
because they hid too much of the money
themselves. He knew of a recent instance in
which $330,000 in State bonds had been hypo?
thecated for a private loan ir? Columbia, and
afterward* soli for $41.Ooo. In closing his
speech Bowen said thu he did not wanta
Tote upon his reso'utlon to-day, because
be had understood ?hat a ruliDg was to
be mirle that wo dd require a two-thirds
vote of the full House-one hundred
and twenty-four members-^to pass the
resolution. Therefore two vote? would be re?
quired to overcome the opposition of every
absentee, including the dead members.* He
Intended 'o offer a resolution to postpone the
futtner consideration of the impeachment
question till after the recess, in order that
meantime the speaker might order special
elections to fill vacancies, and when the final
vote comes, send the sergeant-at-arms to bring
every absent member to his sear. He would
have no snap judgment on the measure. He
wauied a lull house ou the ii na! vote. If a full
I h?we should reject the resolution of impeach
meat, it would be time then to go to* the
court-1. He pledged himself to assist with his
tesimony, auo with all the other means in his
v power, any persons who munt go Into court
to invoke the power of the law against the
robbers of the State.
The speech created a decided sensation.
Governor Scott siid to-day lu the course of

were a base fabrication, founded ou malice.
Bowen, he added, was lu New York last sum?

COLUMBIA, 8. C., December IS.
The Senate this morning. In pursuance of |
the Micawber-like policy that seems to have
been decided upon, contented themselves
with about one hom's work. The House con?
current resohuioD, fixing the joiot election
for circuit Judges on January loth, was laid on
the table on motion of Na*h, who expressed
Ms fear that lt a definite time were fixed for
the election the senators would be ear-w?gged
and button-holed to deith by the small army
of candidates already lo the'field. It wo 3 tac?
itly agreed, however, that thc resolution
should be taken up soon after the recess and
the election ordered, after all. on about the
date proposed by the House. The Senate (hen
vrent at its calendar business, which was de?
posed of in short order as follows :
The bill to regulate pilotage at the ports of
Charleston. Beaufort and Georgetown was ad?
vanced to its third readlRg.
Whlttemore's bill to repeal the ?ieruu* loan
act waty passed and ordered to be sent to the
The per diem bill wa? advanced to a third
reading. It i?, by the way, truly wonderful
to notice the unanimity aud celerity with
which this little bill ls being put through both
houses. It will doubtless be passed by the
Senate to-morrow, and sent to the Governor
so as to bein time to get it back and pass lt
over the veto, il necessary, before the recess.
It 13 hardly probable, however, that the
Governor in his present strait will further in?
cense the members of the Assembly by refus?
ing his signature to this bill, which only seeks
to provide $250,000 for Christmas pocket
money, and the usual but mysterious inciden?
The curious bill, introduced a few days azo
by Hayes, which seeks to make the members'
pay cen Ideal es legal tender in payment cf
taxes, was reported upon adversely by the
finance committee, and killed by being In?
definitely postponed. The same report and
fate were also encountered by the bill by
which lt was sought to take away from the
Governor the power to countersign treasury
drafts, and the bill to amend an act to fix the
salaries aod regulate the pay of certain offi?
A number of other bills were advanced to
various stages or appropriately referred, but
the above comprises all the business ot the I
morning that is of general interest or was
finally disposed of.
In the lower house It has been a field day.
and the proceedings have been both exciting
memorable. Belore the priucipal event
e day was reached, however, the follow
bills and notices were introduced:

stannard by hundreds of aili lavlts. and iii
the said J Banks Lyles was the Chief Of tl

caused some little excitement, and one mei
ber. lo hts anxiety to exhibit his constituiiot
erudition, declared that he wanted Lyle3 pu

ceeded to expel him he would escape furth
punishment on the ground that a person ca
not be punished twice for the same offeuc
On motion of Hurley, however, the malt
went over until to-morrow.
TneHouse then toik up the joint resoluth
requiring the treasurer to pay ex-Attorne
General I. W. Hayne the sum of $550 for t
rears of salary. This was opposed by Hunte
Holmes and others, on the ground that tl
services were rendered in ISM. while Soai
Carolina was a State In the Confederacy, ai
their views were enforced by speeches "ot tl
usual order about the days of Egyptian bon
age. the dawn of freedom, and the breESi
Union, ?tc, and the measure was tl na,ly killi
by striking out the resolving clause.
The mslu battle of the day was then pr?t
pltated by a resolution, by Hunter, of Charle
ton. to adopt the report of Bowen's Invesi
Sating committee as the sense of the Hons
vas moved, as a substitute, thut the repo
be received as Information. Whipper depr
cated such a dilatory motion, and Bowe
thought trie report bad been already r
ceived as information. He defied any men
ber to say the report was not true, and h
claimed that the House owed lt to Itself I
adopt ir. Lee thought it made but little diffe
ence what was done with the report. The r<
port might be eminently true, but lt threw i
additional light on the finance question, sn
was. In fact, but an echo of the Governor
message. If the State officials had doc
wrong, let those members who knew all aboi
1: bring In an Impeachment. He admired th
zeal nf the Charleston gentleman, but woul
like to see him bring In something practicabli
Bowen thanked Lee for his compliment, an
assured him that. If the House would ador
the report that was before them, he woul
give him the best chance he had ever seen^l
bring the gullly parties to punishment. Fros
desired to know what would be the practl
cal difference between the two motions the;
pending, and the speaker exp'ained that t
adopt the report as the pense of the Hous
would require a two-thirds vote by the yea
and nays, iuasmuch as the concluding recom
mendation ot the report virtually pledged t in
House to impeachment, so that ltsadoptioi
would be the first step in the process of itu
peachment, which, according to Ute const itu
lion, required a two-thirds vote. This ruilnj
drew the whole hornet's nest about the ear
of the speaker. Whipper excitedly appealed
and was as excitedly ca led to order by Bys
and Singleton, who were iu turn silenced by tin
chair. Whipper diverged from his appeal t(
the House to move a suspension of the rule re
quiring the House to adjourn al three. It wai
then about ten minutes of three, and Byas ant
one or two others began shouting all manuel
or motions, meant to consume the time ant
carry the matter over anotner day. Byai
hart beet), during an hour or two of th<
morning, closeted with the Governor, anc
Whipper intimated very pointedly anc
repeatedly that he was the paid att?r
ney of somebody In this matter. Finally
however, the usual filibustering dodges were
exhausted and the suspension of the rules wat
carried, the vote being announced at one min
ute ot three. The debate on the appeal from
the chair was continued, and the speaker's de?
cision was vociferously attacked by Whipper.
Jones, Frost, Bosemoa, Hurley, Hunter ana
Bowen, the arguments in all the speeches
being Id?ntica', and confined to the point that
the committee's recommendation was not nec?
essarily a step toward Impeachment, and could
therefore be adopted by a bare majority. The
speaker repeated and carefully explained his
decision, but expressed his entire willingness
to submit to the will of the House upon an ap?
peal therefrom. At last, alter three hours'
clamor, a vote was arrived at and the decision
of the chair was overruled by sixty-five to
twenty-one. Bowen then moved the previous
question on the whole matter, and the report
of the committee was adopted as the sense of
the House by a vote ol fifty-seven to twenty
nine. . This vote was no sooner announced
than Bowen was on his leet with the following
resolutions, which were read from the desk
and laid over under the rules for consideration
Resolved, That Robert K. Scott, Governor
of the Slate of South Carolina, ne Impeached
of high crimes and misdemeanors.
Resolved, That Niles G. Paiker. treasurer of
the State of South Carolina, be impeached ol'
high crimes and misdemeanors.
Thus the Impeachment proceedings against
Scott and Parker were begun, and the House,
at six o'clock, adjourned.
These proceedings of the House were
watched wiih the most eager interest by the
largest audience that eltner branch of the
Assembly has yet attracted, both the floor and
galleries"being well filled with spectators. The
Senate adjourned early to see the lun, and
every member of that body was on the floor
of the House, Wnittemore. Swails and Ransier
appearing most active in pulling the wires of
the puppets of the House. Tom Mackey and
Harry Noah were present iu the interest of Gov.
Scott, while the treasurer was represented by
Jack Little, and bulletins were sent down
stairs every five minutes during the aiternoon.
Among th?; other attentive spectators were
Dr. Neagle, General Worthington. "Honest
John" Patterson, Marshal Johnson and a host
of lesser light.?. The Impeachment resolutions
created a genuine sensation, and would seem
to have added wonderfully to Bowen's reputa
lion as a reiormer in earnest. Meantime the
Governor, I am Informed, poort-pcohs thc
whole proceedings, declares that he knows to
a penny how much money would be required
to s'ifle the thing in ita present stage, but in?
timates that if he had any money to spend for
that purpose lt would go into the Senate where
after all the trial, if lt ever really come to
trial, must be held and the verdict "delivered

[FROM OCR SPECIAL REPORTER ]
COLOMBIA. S. C., December 13. j
The proceedings in the United States Court j
to-day have been of more than usual Interest. I
and such as are seldom witnessed In these
piping times of peace. It was generally J
known that Hon. R-verJy Johnson would
speak lu defence of the prisoner against the j
chame* of conspiracy contained in the indict- j
ment, which has been given heretofore, In lull,
In TUE NEWS, and on the floor of the court?
room was an assemblage befitting the occasion,
i ucl liding about the whole of the Columbia bar,
many lawyers from the Interior, and several
from the lower portion of the State. The rest
ot the audience wa?. made up of citizens irom
nearly every portion of the State, aud of all I
shades of political opinion. There were ai so j
present a larger number of ladies than on any
previous occasion. The galleries were filled I
to overflowing with an audience composed
mainly of colored people, and the Senate I
having done a small day's work had a goodly
nainber of representatives present. TheHouse
was not so well represented, the events which
were transpiring there, mentioned iu another
place, being of euch an absorbing nature that
eveD the characteristic cariosity of that bo Jy
was for once overwhelmed In tue subject.
Mr. Johnson opened by expressing his
views regarding slavery, saying amoug other
.Mogs that he considered lt the vice of the
age, and was thankful that lt hal bccn done
away with; that he hoped to live to see the
day when lt would have no foothold in any
spot on the globe. Refen lng to the course I
ttiat South Carolina had pursued during the I
war, he believed that she hal done no act that
she believed to be wrong at the time, or that
she believed she had not a perfect right lo do,
and in this bellet there were many other men
of prominence and note who thought with her. I
Tnat the experiment had proved a disastrous
one there could be no doubt; but the effort end--|
ed. the people who had entered tl had bided
the final result, accepted the situation, and
were now as anxious tor the prosperity of the
country as any one could be.
In reply to the remarks cf the attorney-J
general, insinuating ihat counsel had come lu I
the capaeliy ol' defenders ol conspiracy. Mr.
Johnson ?aid, We are not Knights Errant. We
are t io old, a:;d I ask what brings here the
attorney-general oftheStaie? Il was not his
duty to prosecute lhese cases In the United
States Courts. It was his duty to see ihat the
Slate courts took proper measures to carry out
the law and brina offenders to Justice. Mr.
Johnson paid a hiuh compliment to the attor?
ney-general for the manner la willoh he had
managed the case. Mr. Johnson then rather J
"went for" the distinguished young barris- j
ter for the manner in which he had I
endeavored to make lt appear Ihat I
counsel for the defence had pursue l
a singular course in the trial. Mr. Johnson I
said he had listened wlih unmixed horror io
many of the assertions made by witnesses.
The acts were inhuman, not to be palliated or
excused, and showed that the parlies engaged I
In them were brutes, Insensible to the laws of
God and humanity; that if he for one moment I
thought Ute prisoner was guilty of the murder
of Jim Williams he wouid not be here to de?
fend him. He came to see that the law was
properly tested, and it there was not some
(joes'ion unde.- the acts of 1870 aud 1871 ihat I
would sel tie the matter of tesl i ng before the
Supreme Court of the United States. The I
court had divided already in opinion upon two
questions, and one remained upon which their I
qivi.don had not been pronounced. The dis-1
tmguished counsel then reviewed the Indict
ment and the evidence, and stated that the
points Involved In the oiiginal indictment
were contained In three counts-three charges: I
The first, conspiracy to prevent colored men
lrom exercising the right ot suffrage In Octo?
ber, 1872. Second, conspiracy lo deny the I
right to bear arms. This had been withdiawu
by the district attorney when he found ob!Me?
llon was going to be raised. [Here Mr. John- j
son paid a rebuke to the procneding cu the
part of ibo district attorney by saying thut that
officer (ihough he did not believe ne meant
lt) had showu a disrespect to the court when
he said he wou'd "tear the indictment to
pieces"-that ls, withdraw the charge.] Tnlril.
conspiracy to Injure Jim Williams for exer?
cising the right of suffrage. Mr. Johnson
having thus marked out plainly the ground in
this case, proceeded in a masterly manner to
show, by the evidence, that there was no hing
to sustain the charge thal any conspiracy had
existed for the perpetration of the crimes al-1
leged, and that the people and this prisoner
were in DO way responsible therefor. His re-1
marks through ?ut were listened to with rev-1
erential silence, n"d made a deep impression.
Mr. Corbin followed in support of ihe argu?
ment made by Attorney Geueral Chamberlain
on Saturday, going over pretiy much the I
same ground. His main points otherwise
were to show that the fires had occurred long
after outrages had been comrnlued upon seve?
ral colored persons, and the murder of Jim
Williams was not attributable lo any threats I
he had made, and appealed lo the jury that I
there was little to censure if he had made
them, and that, under the circumstances, Jim
Williams was justifiable or excusable in mak?
ing threats to kill "from the cradle up." and
that the only wonder was that "your houses
were not all burned-you were not all assassina-1
ted." In iii- course ol his remarks he con-1
necied incidentally the Ku-Klux with the I
Democra ic party, and claimed that where ne?
groes had been whipped by some unknown
parlies it was to keep them from voting In
1872. Mr. Corbin's argument was not of a
Judge Bond then delivered his charge to the
jury, reading the same from a paper in a lor-1
nial manner. The Jury then retired, and, af
ter_an absence of thirty-eight minutes, return- I
ed with a verdict of guilty of general conspir?
acy. They were sent back bv the Judge with
further Instructions, and, after a few mo?
ments' absence, rendered ii verdict of guilt v as
to I he second charge.
Counsel for delence then filed a motion for a
new trial upon the ground that the evidence
did not sustain such a verdict. The following
CHARGE OF JUDGE BOSD.
Gentlemen of the Jury-y ou have listened with
patience to the rt citai or the evidence in this
cause, and without commenting upon (fun, trie
court proposes to state to you tue law, applicable
to the evidence, winch must guide you in ma-dog

be punished ls the unlawful conspiracy, and not
ike particular acts done In purauauce of lt. The
conspiracy is ? crime If nothing be done la pur
s .uno of I .
The Indictment, gentlemen, contains two
counts. The first chartres that the defendant aud
others. Joluty Indict-d with him, with hiving
conspired to violate the first section of the act of
May 31.1870, by unlawfully hlodering, preventing
and restraining a certain class of persons therein
oared from the future exercise cf t ie right to I
vote at an e'ectlon to take place In October. 1872,
on acrouot of their race, color, or previous con-1
dillon of servitude.
And thc second count charges that he. with I
otheri, di I conspire to Injure, because ef his
color, Jami s williams, because he had exercise J '
! the right to vote previously. It ls to these counts
that you are to refer the evidence i nd app y the
law, which the counts give you. Ifyou And from
the evidence that there was no such conspiracy
as that describe ! In the first couur, or If there
was a conspiracy the object of lt and ;ts purpose
were dlflerent from that set forth in;the count, and
that the object and purpose set forth In the count
was not one of its purposes and objects, then the
party charged ts not guilty under the first count,
though he may have been engaged In the conspi?
racy. But lt 19 not necessary, If the jury Hud
there was a conspiracy and the party wa - engag?
ed In lr, trat they should find Its purpose to
have beeu tingle. If they find that oneof its pur?
poses was set forth In the first count, to prevent
citizens from the exercise of the right to vote be?
cause o' their color, it ls sufficient. An associa?
tion haring such a parp?se ts an unlawful conspi?
racy, an t a party engaged In lt may be punished
under the first count.
Each member of such an association Isa conspi?
rator, and ls respon-l^le personal.y for every act
of the conspiracy, and fur the acts of each mem?
ber thereof, dane by common consent, tn further?

ly to their perpetritlon, and that whether the
party charged was himself ac' nally present or not
when such act was r?one. And If the jury believe
from the evidence that the various Elans spoken
of by the witnesses were but parte of one general
c ?nsplracy, this ru e applies not only to the mem?
bers of |the same Klan, but to the acta and con?
duct of the members of the different Elans done
In furtherance of the conspiracy. And lt makes
no difference In guilt tf you find from the evl
dene: thu the motive of a part/ who joined the
conspiracy was not Illegal wt.en he did Join lt, if
you aro dud that after be becajaW-a member be
wa9 aware of thu fact, or had Reason to know
that the true object of the conspiracy was to pre
vent or hinder the free exercise of the election
franchise by intimidation or violence as aforesaid
on ac ountof color, an I that he still remained a
member and participated in l s meetings, and
that thougji you m y also find he never himself
actually u-e.j the ;orce. Intimidation or violence
ami was not present when lt was used.
And now, If the Jury find from the evidence,
that tho party charged, did so conspire to pre?
vent the citizens described from exercising their
right to v.ne on ace .tint of tnelrcolor at a rutu-e
election, specified to be the election to take place
cn the third VYednesJay of october, 1872. then the
party charged ls guilty under the first count of
And if the Jury flhd from the evidence that t hey
did so conspire aud ror the same.nason to injure
and oppress, on ace um of his color, one Jim
Ra m ey alias Jim williams, because he had ante
cedently on the third Wednesday of October. 1870
exercised his rUht to vote, then he ls guilty cn
the second count.
But if the Jury ?Ind from the evidence that no
such conspiracy existed, or that if it existed the
intimidation or Injury of voters because of their
exercise ot the suffrage, or to prevent Its exer?
cise, formed no part of its purpose, or that If that
were its pu mose, the defendant was not engaged
tn I', then the defendant ls not guilty.
But t li-/ jury ls no: hound to believe the sole pur
pose of the conspiracy to be that set out tu the
first count; If they find it tobe oneof the pur
poses it ls sudden:. Xor, if they find that the
I) atlngs and Intimidation spoken of by the wit
nesses toot: plat e or existed, are the Jury bound
to believe that the reasons given at th- time by
the conspirators, If they find reasons were given,
were the tru9 reasons tor such conduct; but the
; ii ry may dt-termlne, from all the evidence In the
cause, what the true reasons were for such vlo
If the Jory find from the evidence, as we Bald
before, that the conspiracy set forth tn the first
and second counts la the indictment existed, and
the defendant engaged In tt there, he 16 guilty on
both counts, if there existed no such conspiracy
at the lime set out In the indictment, or. If exist?
ing, it ha i an ther obj ct wmch did not include

having i he illegal purpose, the defendant took no
part in It, theu he ls not guilty.
The jury are at liberty to find one of three ver
