MEETING OF CITY COUNCIL.
A regular meeting of Council was held last
evening at the usual hour. Present-The
Mayor, and Aldermen O'Neill, Bowen, Gage,
Kenny, Michaels, Voigt, Sweegan, Glover,
Johnston, Moran, Slmond?, Pelzer and Sig
The clerk having announced a quorum, the
Mayor asked ii it was the pleasure of the
Council that the minutes of the last meeting
?Alderman Pelzer said he hoped that the
reading of the minutes would be dispensed
with. Since their last meeting they had suf?
fered a serious loss in the death of their able
brother alderman, Colonel James H. Taylor,
and be bad a series of resolutions which he
wished to offer previous to the adjournment.
The reading having been dispensed with,
Alderman Pelzer offered the following
PREAMBLE AND RESOLUTIONS.
Whereas, lu the mysterious providence of
God, our esteemed and honored colleague,
Colonel James H. Taylor, has been suddenly
and unexpectedly removed from the sphere of
his uselui labors; and, whereas, It is meet
that we should give expression to the feelings
which so painful an event cannot fail to pro?
duce; be it, therefore,
Resolved, That this Council unaffectedly de?
plore the loss of one who, In his too brief as?
sociation with them, merited for himsef their |
cordial regard, and impressed them by the
fidelity and ability with which he represented
the interests of this community.
Resolved, That this Council hereby tender to
the bereaved family ot our deceased colleague
their respectful coudolence under a dipensa
tion which has plunged them Into profoundest
Resolved, That a memorial page of tho Min?
ute Book of this Council be inscribed with the
name and date of the death of our deceased
colleague, and that a copy of this preamble
and these resolutions be sent to the family of j
the deceased, and be published in the dally
Alderman Sweegan spoke upon the resolu?
tions, and said this was the second time they
had been called upon to perform this meian-1
choly duty. The subject o? the memorial had |
always been characterized by promptness In
thedlscharge or his duties, and an earnest Inter-1
est in all matters relating to the wei ? are of the
olly. As a member of Important committees
the valuable services of the deceased were ac?
knowledged by all with whom he acted, and
It was, indeed, unfortunate;that his official ca?
reer had been so short. His sole object seem?
ed to have been the prosperity and welfare
o? Charleston. Of him lt could not be
said that be was no friend to the
poor, for he used his every endeavor
to better their condition, of which no better
illustration could be furnished than the earn?
estness with which, as president o? the How?
ard Association, he carried out all plans for
ministering to their wants and alleviating
their sufferings. His loss could not but be
deeply felt, and It would be long before his
place could be adequately filled. He had
been transferred to the Council above, whence
his departed spirit would watch and guard
their deliberations. *
The resolutioua were then put and unani?
mously agreed to. .
On motion of Alderman Slmonds, Council
thea adjourned until next Tuesday evening.
CLUBS AND STARS.-The Mayor's Court yes?
terday was entirely devoid of excitement, and
tiie only subjects for the exercise of the judi?
cial lund lone were two intoxicated Individuals
and a wandering mule. The three were each
fined one dollar, which was paid up at once.
THE LATE JAMES H. TAYLOR.-The Columbia
South Carolinian, of yesterday, says :
This gentleman died suddenly, in Charles?
ton, from a stroke of paralysis. Ur. Taylor
was a prominent merchant. In view of his
high character, and his enterprising spirit, his
death Is a public loss.
THE COLD SNAP IN THE INTERIOR.-Our
State exchanges agree in pronouncing the
cold spell of last week to have been one of
exceptional severity. The LaureuBvllle Her?
On Thursday morning last the thermometer

The English Comedy Company at the
Academy of Music.
The uninviting weather last evening of
coarse had a marked effect In diminishing the
usual attendance at the Academy of Music;
but it Is eminently creditable to the Wyndham
Company that they produced the comedy of
"Still Waters Run Reep," and the sparkling
afterpiece, with as much spirit, conscientious
care and success as ii the house had been
crowded from pit to dome. It is but Just to
say that we have had no dramatic entertain?
ments o? late which could compare in sustain?
ed excellence and uniform finish, with the flue
old comedies that are now nightly brought out
on the Academy boards. It is the general ver?
dict of all who have seen the company that its
merits are worthy of especial recognition and
patronage on the part of all seekers of refined
and elevating amusement.
To-night we are to have the serio-comic
drama o? "Milky White"-a novelty in Charles?
ton-with a lively farce at the close. We trust
that there will be a full house.' We ard re?
quested to state that the street cars will be run
after the performance is concluded, enabling
those living at a distance lo reach their homes
The ladies and gentlemen who grew so fond
of roller-skating a year ago, are delighted at
the prospect of the revival of the sport, and
the reopening of the Rink at the Academy of
Music on Thursday evening promises to be a
gala occasion. The Rink, wa may add, will be
conducted in a manner to please the most fas?
A CAREER OF VILLANY.-Jack Henderson,
alias Tom Williams, one of the prisoners at
the Charleston Jail, under indictment for rape,
closed his checkered career yesterday morn?
ing in his cell. The early misdeeds of Jack,
who seems to have been about nineteen years
of age, are not chronicled, and his first ap?
pearance in public was on the 4th of August,
1869, when he was committed to the Charles?
ton Jail for an assault and battery, with Intent
to kill, npon an officer. He was tried at the
November term following, and having been
found guilty, was sentenced to six months'
Imprisonment in the jail. He here
served out his sentence and was re?
leased. He went home,and an hour afterward
was arrested for an assault with Intent to
kill upon his own mother. He was again re?
committed, and having been tried at the June
term following was sent back to Jail for one
year's imprisonment. Jack never seemed
contented unless there were iron bars be?
tween him and liberty, and his perfect resig?
nation and exemplary behavior had such an
effect upon the keeper that Jack was promo?
ted to the responsible position of turnkey over
his brother prisoners. While acting in this
capacity, the celebrated Grimes, of Bowen
murder notoriety, was brought to the prison,
and into frequent contact with Jack. Tbe
latter, with his natural love for vlllany, soon
allowed Grimes to walk out of the prison door,
for which transaction he ls said to have
received three hundred dollars from the
friends of Grimes. With the fear of the con-1
sequences before him, Jack walked off aleo,
but was captured, three days after and return?
ed to his prison, where he served out the re?
mainder of his sentence. Once more a free
man, Jack turned his back upon the scene ot
his troubles and went Into the country to en?
lighten the natives. Three days after his re?
lease, rumora of crimes came up from the
country, and the veritable Jack, under the
pseudonym of Tom Williams, was arrested and
almost lynched by the natives for an atrocious
rape upon a colored woman on St. James
Sautee. After examination, Jack found him?
self once more In hld Dr Wno, TO i
peet of a change to the penitentiary at the
present term of the court. He was
well and in good spirits on Monday evening,
but was afterwards taken ill, and died sud?
denly yesterday. A jury of inquest was em?
panelled yesterday morning to investigate the
cause of his death, but owing to the want of |
evidence, adjourned over until this morning.
Jack is the second prisoner under indictment
(or rape who died suddenly within a week at
the jail. _ _
