Comptroller-General Neagle sent Into the
General Assembly hlB annual report. It ls a
voluminous document, and will require seve?
ral da; s to print. In the accompanying letter,
Neagle regrets the unsatisfactory condition of

any recommendations looking to an improve?
ment for the future. He adds: '-But !n view
of Alie fact that the finances are managed by a
financial board, ol which I am not a member,
and of whose further-plans I am not advise?,

hoping, perhaps vainly, that their plans for
the future will work out our relief as rapidly
as those pursued In tbe past bare worked our

THE PROCEEDINGS OF WEDNESDAY.
Hurley's Bill to Aid tbe Rebuilding of
Charleston-The second Failure of the
[P?O? OD& OWN COE RESPONDENT.]
.- COLUMBIA, S. C., January 24.
Our Solons appear to bare received some
new and powerful Impetus during the past two
days impelling them to effective efforts to di?
minish the piles of unfinished business that
have been accumulating in their respective de?
bating clubs, and yesterday and to-day they
have been delving away at the mass of com?
plicated iubbl?b with sanguinary zeal and a
.persistence worthy of a better cause. Perhaps
it ls the proposition to adjourn on the 15th
proximo which has produced this unwonted
Industry, or lt may be the scarcity of private
measures with money lo back them, but what?
ever the cause, the effect ls eminently gratify?
ing, as giving a promise of speedy adjourn?
ment, which is surely *'a consummation de?
voutly to be wished"-by the taxpayers.
In tbe Senate, this morning, Mr. Nash pre?
sented the report of the Joint special investi?
gating committee that was appointed a few
- days ago to ascertain the use that had been
made of the $40,000 Lunatic Asylum appropri?
ation, the report certifying that $27,625 bad
been regularly expended in building op?ra?
tions and that tbe remainder was on hand, to
. gether with an unexpended balance of $5000
from former appropriations.
, A number or bills and resolutions were In?
troduced, ol which the following are the most
By Mr. S wails, a bill defining the time of
commencing criminal and civil action. This
ls a curious affair, which proposes to effect a
very prompt outlawry of actions against any?
body who ls or ever has been so fortunate as
tobe a Slate official. This bill provides that
no criminal or civil action, prosecution or pro?
ceeding by creon behalf of the State or any
. citizen thereof, shall be Instituted or main?
tained against any executive, ministerial or
legislative officer of the State, or against any
persen or persons having held or now holding
any public or fiduciary place or position, for
any act or thing done by said officer or person
in said public or fiduciary .position, unless said
action or prosecution be commenced within
six months from the time when such acts are
alleged to have been committed. Prosecu
- tions for murder are excepted from the pro?
visions ol the act, and Indictments lor arson
mutt be found within three years alter the
alleged commission ot the crime, but indict?
ments for all-other felonies and for all misde?
meanors must be found within six months af
- ter their commission.
By Mr. Swatls, a bill to aid in the construc?
tion of th? Georgetown and Charlotle Ball
road. This is the rather startling title io a
very Innocent measure, which only proposes
to allow and authorize aoy counties, towns or
village?,which may feel an Interest in the con?
struction or the prosperity of tbe road, to
pledge their own lulth and credit for Ks assist?

The Senate then went into Its calendar busi?
ness, and made a wholesale clearance, final
action being taken on the following meas?
Bill to amend an act entitled "An act to
incorporate the Columbia, Walterboro' and
Temassee Rai road Company."
Bill to amend an act entitled "An act to
amend an act entitled 'An act to establish and
maintain a svstem of'free common schools
for the Slate ol South Carolina."
Bill lo empower fathers lo legitimatize
.certain children by lait will and testament
TBili to establish a pub ic road In Barnwell
?and Orangeburg Counties.
The above bids passed, and were ordered to
be sent to the House.
The bill to empower the Judges of the pro?
bate courts, In their respecilve countiep, to
Issue executione, which had already passed
the House, also went through the Senate, and
now only awaits the Governor's approval.
In the House a commendable degree of In?
dustry was also noticeable, but ol course this
remarkable museum of anatomy could not be
expected to completely relorm in one day,
and so the usual tiffs and squabbles were In?
dulged In, though, happily, to a less extent
than heretofore. Tb? fina recreation was an
hour's debate over the bill to provide LT the
election by the people of countv tr?asurets
and auditors, Instead of their appoint m. nt by
the Governor, which was at last passed to a
third reading by a large majority.
A large number of bills, ?c., were then In?
troduced, some of which were ot Borne lin
I)pitaDce and are a? follows:
Mr. Levy introduced his bill to prohibit trial
Justice?, or Justices of the peacr-, from ai
or practicing as attorneys, or counsellc
law, in the conrts of trial Justices, or Jus
of the peace, the penalty provided tor ai
fraction of the law being a ?ne of five hun
dollars and imprisonment for not more
Mr. Hurley-introduced an important bil
titled a bill to encourage the rebuilding o
waste places io the City of Charleston, to u
employment lor the mechanics and labe
people, and fur other purposes. The pn
ble asserts that it is deemed wise and exr.
ent, for the purpose of encouraging th
building of the waste and burnt places ic
City cf Charleston, that additional ind
ments for the investment of capital shoul
offered; that'll would be of great benefit to
classes, especially for the mechanics an
borers, that their chancea for remunera
employment should be increased, and that
City Council are wUllog lo lend their
bouda for these objects, and also to rn
other efforts in the advancement of a corni
and general prosperity, and the bill, there!

Mr. Jervey introduced a bill to incorpon
the St. Andrew's Rifle Corps, ot St. Andre
Parish, Charleston County, which was refer?
to the committee on military affairs.
Mr. Barker Introduced a bill to grant, pow
to the Augusta Canal Company to build a di
across the Savannah Biver.
Mr. Galther Introduced "a bill for the bet
protection cf crops under cultivation," whl
ls nor, as its title might seem io ind?cale
law to prohibit inopportune ralos or inoi
nate frosts, but which does with almost eqi
complacency require all (armers and otu?
owning cultivated lands to surround the sai
with substantial fences, at least five leet bli
under a penalty of five dollars per acre tor
lands not so enclosed. Another member, J
Giles, submitted a bill almost Identical wi
i his which is entitled "a bill to regulate ienc
throughout the State," and which provlc
that "ali farmers in this State shall keet
fence, strong and substantial, measutiDg
height five feet from the ground, the earrie
be to all intents and purposes a lawful fenci
It may sound strangely to any who are acct
tomed to police phraseology to hear of peo|
being required oy law to "beep a 'lenee
while there ace laws against receiving stol
goods; but what would the Hawksbaws
Charleston consider "a lawiul 'fence ?' "
Mr. L. Cain gave notice of a bill to corni
representatives lo reside in the counties frc
which they were eleoted. This caused a gt
eral laugh, and some little squirming amoi
the members, but of course the bill, if lt
ever introduced, will find a quiet and spee
grave in some .hospitable pigeon hole, wlie
lt will slumber undisturbed, while ''ie larch
elections of next full proceed.
Mr. Garey introduced a bill lo all
and amend an act entitled uan act
regulate the disposition ot fines and pe
allies Imposed and collected In cnn
nal cau-cs in courts of trial Justice!
This bill provides that all such moneys ?bi
be paid by the trial Justices to the COUD
treasurers to be used lor county purposes, ai
requires all trial Justices to make, written r
turns of all such moneys received, on the ni
Monday of every month, under a penally
one hundred dollars and imprisonment 1
twelve months or less.
The House then proceeded to the consider
tion of its calendar business and soon rescue
the resolution offered yesterday by Gener
Whipper "that B E. Scott, Governor of tl
State of South Carolina, be impeached
hlzh crimes and misdemeanors In office."
This created a little whirlwind, and brougl
on a lively skirmish, lasi lng for about or
hour. The Hessians began filibustering i
once by a motion to indefinitely postpone ti
consideration of the resolution, but this wi
lost by a vole of 28 to 41. Then Gener
Whipper called the., previous question, am
ihe call being sustained, he parcelled out iii
hour thus allowed him among Jones, Wilke
Hunter, Lee and By as, who amused then
selves ad iib?um wii h their peculiar orator
repeated their threadbare and famllli
arguments, and disported themselves gene:
ally to their own intense satisfaction. Ttl
call of the yeas and Days being finally reachei
It was found that a sufficient number of men

under the two-thirds rule in any case, thei
being but eighty-one members present, whit
under the speaker's ruling, an affirmativ
vote of eighty-eight is necessary. The vot
taken, however, showed a larger number <
members in favor of Impeachment than ha
voted for it before the recess and resulted in
tie, by 40 to 40. The speaker having the casi
lng vote recorded himself with the antl-in
peachers, and so the resolution was lost one
The votes in favor of Impeachment were

The Huu-e then, at half-past three, ad?
journed until io morrow.
The postponed meeting of the judiciary
commiueVto consider (he metropolitan po?
lice bill was held bs, n-ghr, but was attended
by no one who ^ras opposed to the general
principal ot a metropolitan police establish?
ment, though several expressed themselves
strongly against the bill now pending. Among
those in attendance, besides the committee
and the Charleston members of the House,
were Captain Hendricks, Sheriff Mackey, Col?
onel Tait and a few others, ali of whom
agreed on the desirability, from their stand?
point, of a metropolitan system of police, and
admi ted freely (hallt was a partisan meas?
ure, and that they supported it as such, but
differed widely as to details, and especially us
to ihe control of the patronage. The present
bill empowers the Governor lo appoint the
three commis.-loners of police und the superin?
tendent, who are lu turn to appoint the sub?
ordinate officers and pr.vat? s of the force;
surrenders tne two guardhouses, part of the
City Hall, and other property, to the new
comunisslouers, includes the whole of Charles?
ton County in the metropolitan ci-trict, and
even extends its operations, in certain COD
Urgencies, to every porilou of the Slate.
Many of these provisions were obnoxious to
almost every one present, but the principal
rock on which' they split was as to the ap?
pointing power. Some thought the Legisla?
ture should have the power, others claimed lt
for the Charleston delegation, while some
were gracious enough to say (hat the people'
of Charleston should have the right to elec.
their own police officials. It was finally agreed
by the committee that they should report
unfavorably upon the present bill and recom?
mend that the mailer be referred to the Charles?
ton delegation io dratt another bill, which
might give the House a better chance lor
pr. v>eciive loaves und fishes, and have, there?
fore, a better ehance of being parsed. Tne
preseot posture ot the maller appears ?to he,
therefoie. that while me metropolitan police
bill, as now drawn, is doomed to ?speedy and
Inglorious death, another one. which will
''-ubi less contain every essential leuiure of
nie first, but which will be stigar-co Med tor
the dainty palate ot' Hie House, will take its
place, with belter chances ol success, and
may .very probably pass the lower house. The
only quotion now appears to be whether die
"locust" is to be wielded over recalcitrant
Charleston by Joues, Brown and Robinson, as
appointees jf Scott, or by Robinson, own
and Jones as the creatures ol Hie House; bul
lhere yet remains a simple way for ihe citizens
of Charleston to avert either calamity.

The Abbeville Medium has the foll ow! og lur
ther details of the recent disastrous fire at
that place :
Friday morning was one of horror. The
s;ene when Knox's range was burning was
appalling, terrille, but when the "Marshall
House" was in flumes lt rose to the greatness
of the theme, and was grandly Bubllme. It
ignited on the lower sideband was soon en?
veloped io flames. Strange forked tongues of
fire, without feeling or mercy, spread over the
massive pile of masonry, and Illuminated,
with lurid glow, the country for miles around.
Swiftly and more swiftly spread the merciless

The inmates of the hotel were strangely dis?
turbed in (heir slumbers; sweet dreams of
borne and loved ones were rudely broken by
the re [noiseless flames. Narrow escapes from
death were made, and swiftly moved the work
of destruction. Cries for succor were borne
aloft, and In motley, disorganized mass, the
old and feeble, the young and helpless were
driven into the streets by the unfeeling mon?
ster. Flying women, helpless lnldms, the
anxious property-holder made a sight well
worthy the painters best skill to delineate.
Aud the courthouse is gone-a souvenir of
the days of "Auld Lang Syne"-a monument
lo an age of learning and literature-a temple
at whose shrine noble priests have ministered
-the dividing line between the old and new
regime, her lights fled and her garlands dead.
Yes, the couri house, so long the pride and
boast ol our county, now stands with bare and
blackened walls, with gaping, dismal win?
dows-a wreck ! A great blow Indeed to our
already over-burdened people !
"Pigtail Alley," the great lurking place of
vice, was Boon a smoking ruin. It had defied
the stand Jury, the town council and the
thunders of the law; but the avenging fires of
a long-suffering Providence soon swept it
away, and left in its place but charred and
sombre ruins, and unsightly and solitary
Of course the ludicrous and grave, the sad
and gay, the smile and tear, were well mixed.
Many Utile incidents of a light nature occurred.
One old colored woman, with pitiful lamenia
(ions, Tailing heart and hope, bemoaned the
destruction ot her "old coffee pot," and why
not? A relic of better da^s, the furnisher of
pleasant draughts, was melting Jrom her
sight, and she, alas I was powerless. Another,
a man who had the weighty responsibility o?a
family resting upon him, seized the passing
moment, and endeavored to lay in a barrel of
flour. With the barrel before him on a mulo
he departed, but the best laid schemes of men
fail, and to the "Blue Hill" and no further; for
there he was overhauled. Alas ! Charles, you
will Hod (hat at a fire os well os elsewhere
"honesty is the best policy."
The fire is now alleged to have commenced
in the room back ol Russell's bar-room, and
not In Bowie's blichen, as we before state J.
Bussell and Bowie lost most of their furniture
and bedding, and Bowie had only time enough
to save himself. Russell's bar-room, and that
of Chrlstiau & WllBon, wera complete losses,
not being covered by any insurance. Kaphau
Sc Skiers lost a good part et their goods, but,
happily for themselves, were . Insured in the
sum of $5500. John Knox lost a great deal, as
much by roguery nearly as by fire. He had a
very large stock of goods on hand, and saved
hardly un vining. He was insured lor $7000.
The Marshall House was insured for $3000.
Tiamat* ic Bequest were not Insured at all, but
by hard work saved about three-quarters of
their whole stock. Trowbridge Sc Co. mei
with heavy losses, botb by fire and thieving,
jut were Insured in $3000.
The BuffererB'by the fire aro going ahead
making efforts to recuperate their fortunes.
Bargaining loriots on the burnt row ls going
on, and the prices ara high. Messrs. McDon?
ald & Adamson have purchased the lot from
Mr. Christian, where his bar-room used to
stund, for $1400. Numerous offers have been
made for other lots, and considerable enerby
In favor of improvement ls being manifested.
Mr. Wilson talks of rebuilding the Marshall
House, and we hope he.will do so. Helsa
man of energy and taste, and deserves the
highest credit for the Improvements he had
made on l he old h o iel.
On Saturday last. Mr. George F. E. Wenck,
the celebrated German artist, was upon th?
spot, and transferred to canvas lha "ruins,"

[From the Chicago Post.|
lt is now in order io recount anecdotes of
the early life of ihe late James Fisk, Jr., and
the Table Talker, ever ready to contribute to '.
the literature of lbs country, proceeds to re?
late the flowing reminiscence of the Prince's
sunny hout>af boyhood:
When Ftalram about ten years of age he
kept a small market stall at Bennington, Vt.
One day ihe emineu. steamboat man, Daniel
Drew, came to ihe market willi his basket on
lits at m. He asked young Fis k If his egtts wera
fresh. "You bet," replied eVe ingenuous bov;
"pop pulled them off ihe vines this morning!"
"Give me a dozen, sonny,-" replied Mr. Drew.
The next stall was kept by little Eliphalet
Buckram. "Is this pumpkin good, my son ?"
asked the venerable stock-broker. "It is a
goodenough Morgan,"answered thetruthlul
child; "but, slr, If you will examine that por?
tion concealed from too scrutinizing view, by
contact with the boards foi ming the counter
of thc stall, you will see that there is a
bad spot In lt." "Does not that seem un?
businesslike, my child, to cry down vour
own wares !" asked the kind-hearted miflon
alre. "My sainted mother told me I must
never (ell a lie with my little hatchet," re?
sponded Edphalet Buckram. The rich man
was moved to tears; he took out his purse and
gave Eliphalet Buckram a pat on the head
and said he was a good boy. When lie had
gone, Eliphalet Buckram said to little James,
"O James, what made you tell such a llb ?
You know those eggs were laid three weeks
ago. You will see that I have gained a cus?
tomer and you have Jost one." Well, when
Eliphalet went home, his stepmother came to
the door and said : "Here you are, you lazy
little sneak, and you havn't so d that putikin
yet ! PU punkln you !" And she took him lo
her etepmoiherly arms and fanned him
with an ox-goad until he said that he
would prefer taking his meals off the manic
piece lor (he next lew consecutive duya
to sliting down with the re9t of ihe fam?
ily. And next day Daniel Drew came into the
market (l a reatta' und a t eui lu'," as old inhabi?
tants say,) and said: "Where is tue boy that
sold metnoie egj.?, eh?" and Jim Fisk pointed
to Eliphalet and said: "Therehei?, slr," and
Daniel Drew reinforced (hal. boy's stepmother's
ox-good with lils cane so effectually that-but
nevermind. So Daniel Drew bought all his
arden-sussof Jim Fisk. In aller life Eliphal t
nckram set up a grocery store, and gave trust
to all the roor peopl?, and never sanded his
sugar, and wouldn't quality his rum with
water; so he burst up, and the sheriff sold him
out and he went to the poorhouse. BUL Daniel
Drew kept his eye on Jim Fisk, and bv-und-by
he gave lilma partnership In the Erie firm, and
Jim beat him out ol'$4.000,000. This ls not a
story lor good ilitle boys. We fear It is too
nour ihe truth.
OSE MORE STORT about Fisk: "The deceased
Colonel F sk'a love of Inn he retuiued to the

The Shooting Affray ut ino Statehouse
iFrorn the Columbia Phoenix.]
We have obtained full particulars of the
dltJJctilty which occurred at the Statehouse
Tuesday between the notable By as,'a negro
member of the House, and Mr. B. W. Tom an?
son, reporter of THE CHARLESTON DAILY
NEWS. A few minutes before twelve o'clock,
the hour the Legislature con venes, as Mr. Tom
linson was passing out or the Senate Chamber
into the lobby, he met By as, who, it seems,
had been at. the door awaiting him, and on
bloody thoughts Intent, for some little while.
Mr. Tomllnson, unsuspicious of any evil de?
signs, politely greeted Byas, "Good morning."
Said Byas, in a turly tone, "Are you, sir, the
correspondent of THE CHARLESTON NEWS ?"
"I om," replied Mr. Tomllnson. "Did you,"
fiercely inquired Byas. "write that scurr'llloiis
article about my being cowhided the other
day?" "Well," said Mr. Tomllnson, "I pre?
sume I did; I write all the communications
from this place to THE Ntws." With that the
doughty champion of the ring s wore a frightful
oath, and, casting aside his overcoat,drew from
his person a bran-new green cow-skin switch,
and wit h a flourish raised it aloft, and was in
the act of striking Mr. Tomllnson when that
gent lemau drew hie revolver, and Byas igno?
miniously turned and fled towards the
I speaker's roon. He turned once Just before
reaching the door and brandished his cow
skin, and then It was that Mr. Tomllnson
fired. The bail struck Byas in the side, in?
flicting a slight flesh wound. Ho rushed
pell mell inn the speaker's room, and
thc door was slammed to, to prevent
Mr. Tomllnson from pursuing him. This, how?
ever, he had no desire to do, but stood quietly
in his tracks till ari'exclted crowd gathering
around he was amsted by Mr. fl. W. Hen?
dricks and assured of his protection. An eager
and anery mues ot negroes aron collected Irr
the lobby, and some direful threats of ven
eance were nade,, until lt was understood
ow the shooliig occurred, when Mr. Tomlin?
sons action was conceded to be Justifiable,
even by the negroes. There was some appre?
hensions of an attempt lo lynch Mr. Tomlln?
son at first, but Mri Hendricks, who acted ina
very commendable-manner, succeeded in sav?
ing him irom the- clutohes of the mob, and
turned him ovtr to Slier Iff Frazee. Mr. Tom?
llnson wa? rekased dorlog the day on a ball
bond of seven hundred dollars. Byas was in
his seat before the House adjourned, and had
evidently been worse frightened than burt.
He took a novel Diode of retaliating for the
c J whining ht received from Williams, and
succeeded about as he deserved.
Another Personal Difficulty.
[Pron the Columbia Phoenix.]
An unforturate difficulty occurred, last eve?
ning, between Mr. Philip Porcher and Mr. E.
W. Selbels. Ihe latter gentleman was stand?
ing in iront of the Columbia Hotel, about seven
o'clock, when Mr. Porcher approached him
and demanded an explanation of certain de?
rogatory remarks which he had heard that
Mr. Selbels mide about him. The explana?
tion not being-satisfactory, Mr. Porcher drew
a cowhide ned struck Mr. Selbels several
blows across tte lace. The insult was prompt?
ly resented by Ur. Selbels, and a fist lc nfl en?
sued, until Captain Tupper and other friends
Intervened anc separated the parties. Both
thc gentlemen are highly respectable citizens,
and as the matters in controversy between
them are p urey of a private nature, we for?
bear further comment.

THE WEST-MVOLNG AGAINST GRANT.
JEFFERSON' ?ITY, MO., January 25.
The Liberal Republican Mass Convention
waa the largest ever assembled in thc Stale.
It was resulted that t he shameless abuse of
government patronage for the control of
conventions and elections, whether in the
interest of aa individual, (action or party,
with its consequent corruption and demoraliza?
tion of political life, demanda a thorough and
general reform of ihe public service. Those
who would suppress investigation forget they
owe a higher duty to the country than to any
