In the pigeon-holes of the special committee
composed ot the Charleston members, and
new a third one, and apparently the worst of
the lot, has been introduced by Bowen, and
was received In (he House this morning with
a favorable report from a majority ot the
?pedal committee. This latest device of the
enemy proposes to put the city and county o?
Charleston into the hands of a sort of custom?
house triumvirate, who are clothed with the
most extraordinary powers, and who are to
immediately possess themselves of a large
share of the city's real estate, to summarily
abolish the recorder of Charleston, all the
trial Justices In Charleston City; to supercede
the Jftryor and Aldermen in the exercise of at
least one Important function of their offices,
and even to extend their operations at will to
any section of the Stale. The bill is entitled,
like its unfortunate predecessors, UA bill to es?
tablish a metropolitan police district, and to
provide for the government of the same," and
Its principal provisions are as follows:
It constitutes the ?ounty of Charleston a
metropolitan police district-, and appoinis
Messrs. R. B. Artson, Aaron Logan and H. C.
Ml nott a board of police commissioners, at an
annual salary of $1200 each, for the govern
ment thereof, to serve until their successors

frring'ln this board are to be filled by the
ining members. At the next general

nation of the office of police commissioner.
""The commissioners may be removed by the
Governor for cause, lu the same way as ls now
provided by statute for the removal of county
-officer?, and in case of removal the vacancy
shall be flited by the remaining members, un?
less the whole board be removed, in which
?case the Governor shall order a special elec?
tion within twenty days of such removal, and
the commissioners elected at such special
? election shall hold their office until the next
* general elecilon, and until their successors are
qualified. The commissioners are authorized
to appoint* .
One superintendent of police, salary.. .$ 1,500

Making a total of. $75,060
The bill provides further that members of
the metropolitan police force shall possess in'
every part of the State all the csmmon law
and statutory powers ot constables, except in
the service of civil processe.--, and the officers
of the force are expressly authorized to exer?
cise their powers on any'vessel upon the coast
of South Carolina. The commissioners are
' empowered, upon the*appllcalion of persons
desiring"!he services of special patrolmen, to
appoint as many such patrolmen as they
pleace. they belog paid by the persons desir?
ing their services, and at the same rate as
. oiher members ot the force. They are also
authorized In case ol .riot or pestilence, or
duri n e any day of public election or celebra?
tion, or upon any emergency, to appoint any
necessary number of special policemen, who
-are to be paid for the lime employed. A Po
r9jke Court ls created, with three police justices
?- ar an annual salary of eighteen hundred dol?
lars each, to be elected by the Legislature sit?
ting in Joint assembly, and lo have Jurisdic?
tion over all cases arising under the city or?
dinances' and the paine Jurisdiction as ls now
possessed by trial Justices. The office of re?
corder ls abolished; and lt is provided
"that all trial Justices now appointed,
or that may hereafter be appoApted for the
County of Charleston, are hereby prohibited
from exercising any Jurisdiction within the
corporate limits ot the City of Charleston.*1
Another section creates a metropolitan detec?
tive force, to be appointed by ihe commission?
ers and superintendent of police, and to con?
sist of one chief detective at twelve hundred

annual salary of seven hundred and twenty
dollars each. The commissioners are author?

property of the present police foret?, and the
.commissioners are empowered to purchase

and to build, purchase or rent such buildings

This precious production was reported favo?
rably by Jervey us the chairman of the special
.committee, and he moved that its considera?
tion be postponed and made the special order
/br Monday next at 1.30 P. M. This brought
the United Brethren to the iront, headed by
.Jamison, wbo, as usual, "hoped not," and
moved instead to make lt the special order (or
Friday at 2 P. M. He wanted to put the thing
through, and didn't see the use of delaying.
?Jervey replied that the bill was an Important
one that demanded the careful attention of
.every member; lt had not yet been printed,
aadmore lime was needed tor its considera
*J8P by the members. Jones thought that
'tipall moonshine; the members knew all
about the bill, it had been published In all the
newspapers, and attacked and argued for a
month. He wanted to see something done,
p and he moved the previous question on the
motion by Jamison. This ?rave Jervey an
hour, and he parcelled out the time among
Hurley, Bowley and others. Hurley thought
It was a very remarkable interest tbat the
members from Orangebur?r and Georgetown
were taking in the Charleston matter, lt was
like the Interest the Heathan Chinee once felt
In the missionary-he wanted to slay him.
Jamison. Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question
Hurley. Well, never mind, PH take it all
back, and will call him l he missionary. Now,
this measure has been committed to the
Charleston delegation, because they were
eighteen of the most honest men ibat could
be elected In Charleston.
Jamison. Oh, I don't see it.
Hurley. Well, I don't wonder that the
country members don't see it. They never
lived lu Charleston, and don't know the terri?
ble temptations that an honest man ls subject?
ed to there. I now ask as an ad ot justice to
those eighteen honest meo, that the mai ter
I go over to Monday, when they can all be here
1 to vote upon lt. One of them has got to go to
Charleston to-morrow, to reduce the Demo?
cratic minority by two, on a board he belongs
to. Another one ls going down to-night, be- ?
cause he heard the sheriff was coming for him,
ani he wants to meet bim halt way, I SUD
Here, Jamison came over, and whispered to
Hurley, "Let the bill come up to-morrow."
Hurley replied, also, sotto voce, "Oh no, I
won't do lt." The speaker objeded to this
side show, and Hurley quite turned the
tables on the little man, by saying, "Well,
Mr. Speaker, when a man comes to me right I
here, when I am making a speech, and asks
me to lend him ten dollars, I dou't want to
hurt his feelings by saying out loud, that I
won't do ll." This raised a little laugh, and
doubtless did as much to defeat tue little
Oi-.Jgeman as an hour's serious argument
could have done. After further arguments
from Bowley. Elliott, Henderson and others,
all in favor of postponement, the matter was
finallv set down for discussion on Monday at
2 P. il.
Previous to this debate in the Home, ihe Ju?
diciary committee reported favorably on the
bill requiring juries lc criminal cases to be
kept together aud to be kept ia the charge of
the sheriffs until they have rendered their
verdicts, and prescribing a penalty for ihe vio?
lation of ihe act of a flue of not less than filly
dollars or more than three hundred 'ollars
and Imprisonment lor not more th three
months. Also, upon the bill to authorize
aliens to acquire, hold and dispose of real and
personal property In the same manner In all
respects as natural born citizens.
The same committee reported unfavorably
upon (be bill to df fine and regulate the Juris?
diction of the Police Court of Charleston,
which bill provides for a Police Court to be
held by the recorder of the city instead of the
Mayor, or, in the absence of the recorder, by
one ol the aldermen or by a trial Justice, to be
designated by the Mayor.
Upon the call of counties the following bills,
Ac, were Introduced:
By Mr. Levy, a bill to Incorporate the
Deutsche Bruderliche Bund, of Charleston;
bill to renew the charter of the Hope Steam
Fire Engine Company, of Charleston; and no-1
tice of a bill to Incorporate the South Carolina
Real Estate, Mining and Manufacturing Com-1
By Mr. Yocum, a bill to protect the people of
the State of Sooth Carolina against illegal
fraudulent issues ot bonds and securities. This
bill recites that there have been illegal issues of |
bonds, and that nobody knows the extent or
?amoum of such issues, and, therefore, pro?
vides for another joint special financial inves?
tigating committee, to consist of one from the
Senate and two (rom the House, to examine
and report as to which bonds are Ilegal and
which are genuine. The committee to sit In
Charleston for not more than sixty days, be?
ginnlog March 1, 1872, to have authority to
send lor personB apd papers, and to advertise
their meeting in the papers of Charleston.
Columbia, New York and Washington. All
persons holding bonds of the State are to re?
port all about tne same to this new inquisi?
tion before May 1, 1872, and a failure to make
such report shall be deemed prima facie evi?
dence ot the* illegality of such bonds. The
treasurer is prohibited from paying the Inter?
est on any bonds until the report of this com?
mittee be received, but he ls carefully in?
structed to pay all the expenses of the com-,
m lt tee.
By Mr. Cousarr, a bill to restrain iherlffs
from selling certain county property under
executions against the county. This measure
seeks to exempt the county poorhouses and
Jails from sale under executions ior debt.
By Mr. Singleton, notice of a bill to relieve
the State ol' all liability for its guarantee of |
the bonds of the Blue Ridge Rai'road Compa?
ny, by providing for the securing and destruc?
tion of the same. This looks like an effort to
put money In circulation, and really the effort
seems lo be needed, in view ol' tho notice that
Treasurer Parker has placarded In his office
that "no legislative expenses will be paid
until the appropriation bill has passed."
In the Senate there was little business of |
any importance transacted. The war of yes?
terday upon Mr. Whlitemore's bill to provide
for the registry of State securities was renew?
ed, and waged with much ferocity and bitter?
ness, pilnclpally between the author of the
bill and tbe senator lrom Barnwell. The mat?
ter was finally postponed to Wednesday next.
Mr. Smalls reported, as might have been
expected, that more time was needed by the
phosphate committee to complete their odor?
iferous researches, and an indefinite exten?
sion was accordingly granted.
Mr. Nash introduced a bill to Incorporate
the Traction Steam Engine Company, of Co?
lumbia, and Mr. Wblttemore introduced
another bill to amend the election law, by
providing for the immediate canvass ol the
votes at the cloie of the polls, but containing
no provision for minority representation upon
the boards of managet s. PICKET.

In the same neighborhood were the residences
of Charles Lee, Washington's attorney-general;
Arthur Lee, the accomplished negotiator of
the treaty between the colonies and France;
and the birth-places of Monroe. Jefferson and
Robert E. Lee. He challenged Hoar lo find

of men who whipped women, begot little

now more than sixty years of age. He came
Into court and admitted he was a member of
a secret organization. He had never been

Captain W. D. Okipley:
DEAR SIR-I can searcely say that no over?
tures have been made to control the Atlanta
and West Point Railroad, but can say that no
proposition of that kind has been seriously
entertained or contemplated by the authori?
ties of the Atlanta and West Point Railroad
Company. So far as they have considered,
propositions from other Interests have not
contemplated any exclusive control, but only
business privileges lo common. We have no
uolriendly feellnz toward the Central Railroad
Company, or the interests connected with lt,
but I am certain in the opinion that no dispo?
sition of the Allanta and West Point Railroad
is likely to be made that would interfere with
a fair business connection with your road
at LaGrange, when your road reaches that
I scarcely know what to believe now-a-days
In the shape of railroad sensational rumors,
but am decidedly ot opinion that the late
rumors about the control of the South Caro?

The care with which Several Important ex?
pressions (in thc letter) are Italicised will not
escape attention. It is characteristic of the
writer. We hardly think the letter ls entirely
satisfactory to the gentleman to whom it ls
addressed. Captain Chjpley I?, we think, gen?
eral superintendent, or In some way offlclallv
connected with the new railway in course of
construction from Columbus to Rome, known
as the "North and South Road." The line of
the latter must necessarily cross the line of
the Atlanta and LaGrange Road, and the
! managers of the North and South Road In lo?
cating their line so as to touch LaGrange
hoped thereby to make a connection with
Augusta and the Atlantic seaboard But
rumors of the contemplated transfer of the
Atlantic and LaGrange Road to the Pennsyl?
vania '?Southern Railroad and Security Com?
pany" caused them lo entertain doubts
whether, alter all, the LaGrange connection
would really benefit them much, and hence
this letter of Inquiry to Judge King.
We are not at all surprised to And that Judge
King is "decidedly of opinion that ihe late
rumor about the control of the South Caroli?
na Railroad is all bosh .'" We recollect that,
at a public meeting held not long since In
Athens, to revive the Athens and Clayton
Railroad project, that Judge King, In reply to
some remarks by the writer, to the effect that
the Air Line Railroad would soon be con?
structed, said, In effect, that the Air Line
Road was all bosh ! Judge King ls evidently
so constituted that he either cannot, or will
not. see unpleasant things until lt ls too late
to counteract their effect and influence. The
rumors about the sate aud purchase of ihe
siock ol the South Carolina Railroad is, we
are lnlormed by those who ought to know,
true. Ol course we state nothing In this re?
gard f roar our own knowledge, but our infor?
mation comes from such a quarter as to lully

Toe v?g?tative powers of life are strong, bat in
a few years now often tbe pallid boo. tine lack-las'
tre eye, and emaciated form, show their baneful
influence, lt soon becomes evident to the observ?
er that some depressing influence ls checking the
development of the body. Consumption ls tai sed
or, and perhaps the youth ls removed from school
and sent into the country. This Is one of the
worst movements. Removed from ordinary di?
versions or the ever-changing soenesof the etty,
the powers of the body, too mach enfeebled to
give zest to healthful and rural exercise, thoughts
are turned Inwardly upon themselves.
If the patient bea female the approach of the

power in diffaslng the circulation and visiting the
cheek with the bloom of health. Alas I increase

energies of the system are prostrated, and the
whole economy ls deranged. The beau tirol and

ls looked for In vain. The parent's heart bleeds

Nothing Is more desirable to such patients than
Solitude, and nothing they more dread, for fear
of themselves; no repose of manner, no earnest?

THESE SYMPTOMS, IF ALLOWED TO GO ON

WHICH THE PATIENT MAY EXPIRE.
During the Superintendence of Dr. WILSON at
the BLOOMINGDA LE ASYLUM, this sad result
occurred to two patients. Reason had for a time
left them, and both died of. epilepsy. They were
of both sexes, and about twenty years or age.
Who can say that their excesses are not fre?
qaently followed by those direful diseases, IN?
SANITY and CONSUMPTION ? The records or the
INSANE ASYLUMS, and the melancholy deatha by
Consumption, bear ample witness to the truth of
these assertions. In Lunatic Asylums the most
melancholy exhibition appears. The countenance
ls actually sodden and quite destitute; neither
mirth nor grief ever visits lt. Should a sound of
the voice occur lt ls rarely articulate.

Low sallen sounds their grief beguiled."
