THE ANNrV ER SA P. Y DINNER.
At seven o'clock, the members of the Cham?
ber, with their invited guests, assembled at
the Hibernian Hall, where Tully bad been
long at work preparing for their reception..
The handsome tables were soon surrounded,
andfat the head, in the old oak-carved chair,
sat President Tupper, with Colonel Wm. Lud?
low, United States Army, and Postmaster
Stanley G. Trott on bis right, and the Rev.
Mr. Trapier and the Hon. A. G. Magrath on
his lett. A blessing - haying been invoked try
the Rev. Mr. Trapier, the business of the eve?
ning began, and for an hour or more the
several courses, varied by pr?vate Interchange
oi sentiment over sparkling glasses of cham?
pagne, occupied the aas? m bia ge. The dinner
was enlivened by the presence of a fine band,
and many a dyspeptic will remember with
thanks the lively and sentimental airs of Pro?
fessor Dauer and -his assistants.
When the dessert was under discussion, and
the smoke from the flagrant Havanas rose
slowly In the air, a chorus" or rapping was
heard, and President Tupper rose?.
REMARKS OF PR?SIDENT TOPPER.
He said it sbould be with the greatest con?
tentment and satisfaction that they came to?
gether upon this, their eighty-eighth anniver?
sary. The sphere o? the influence ol the
Cb am ber had been Widely extended, and lt
t could now boast of more active members than
ever before. Its influence was recognized
everywhere, and while the members were har?
monious and mutually sustaining, who could es?
timate the be nelle lal result which must accrue
to the commercial community. Amid their
rejoicings he saw, however, a cause for anx?
iety, which, like a sword of Damocles, hung
suspended over their social gathering. He
apprehended that the merchants cf Charles?
ton were overworked. [Laughter.] In this
' city they had far less recreation than in other
cities. [Cheers.] And he knew that our busi?
ness men would live longer If these gatherings
were more frequent. [Cheers.] An old English
writer-had said that the American merchant
was the most melancholy subj ec t he ever en?
countered, on account of the vast amount o?
thinking he did. He (President Tupper) did not
know if the writer had ever been to Charles
13n. He could hardly have seen the late Jim
Fisk, who was always reported as laughing
and joking in the midst of his wildest specula?
tions. Ihe writer must have strolled along
our wharves, for the bluest people the speaker
knew of were our factors, as they talked with
a buyer, and sentimentally pulled wads of cot?
ton to help out the conversation. [Loud
laughter.] Our merchants undergo great
labi?.p Md anxiety. Where else coul? these
men be /ound going to tbeir offices at eight
o'clock In the! morning, and leaving them at
tan at night ? Si? wonder there was apoplexy
and heart disease at work among them.
Life is sustained by the respiration of oxy?
gen, and by a good digestion; and one may
as well be a cat in the exhaust air bell of an
experimenting professor as lo a close rloe and
cotton office for such a length of time.
* Another writer, and a namesake too, said
man was never intended for happiness in this
world, and Increasing civilization brought
new wants and cravings. Ii this be true, what
better way of passing time could be found
than in social gathering?, cheerful companion?
ship and generous wines. The sacred writer
said, (and the speaker hoped his Reverend
friend would corree: him) "Not unto
Kings give wine or strong drink
unto Princes, but give wine to
those of heavy heart and strong
drink to those ready to perish." But this did
not refer to the merchant princes. [Laughter.]
It was but right that, for a time, the Charles?
ton merchants Bhould foreswear allegiance to
King Cotton and Prince Rice. He thanked
them tor the great honor done him in bis re?
election to an office which Bhould be the
highest ambition ot a merchant. He would
endeavor to preserve the representative char?
acter of the Chamber, and protect the conser?
vatism of the body which now contained the
hope of South Carolina. He would endeavor
to foster the principles of their fathere, until
-tibe time when this spirit would go forth and
regenerate our State. In conclusion, the
Bpeaker asked: What avail would our
commerce and industry be if our mer
chants became corrupt and deba
surrounding Institutions ? Wbere eta
we look for so much ? We must be I
ourselves, and exercise that influence
and persistently, not only for the aid c
merce, but to encourage that morality

also arisen new duties and new responslbi
ties. That past should give us purpose ac

That luture to me seems, aa plainly as if
were revealed lo us lu language, to give to i
assurance of that material development whlcl
fairly accomplished, will give to us anew ext
tence; which will be to us recompense lc
what we have lost. It will come as .surely s
we win strive for lt; and lc will come to use
the resuit ofthat commercial spirit which lb:
Chamber ls organized to foster and support.
No one ls less disposed than I am to m is: ah
the true character of the great disadvantage
under which we suffer. No one is less it
dined than I am to fall in a just appreclatio
of the difficulties which we must overcome
But no one 1B lt SS willing thau I am to ea
dude from Its just considerations the ad vat
tages we have in the effort to secure lor ou
State prosperity for its people, aad with tba
a Just and honest government. And the.-,
will come ia the order in which I have state,
I have no Inclination to dwell upon the mi;
government which has In this State been si
completely exposed. I Intend to allude lo 1
no farther than io say that lt is fast hastening
an issue which will be simply characterized a:
that of right against wrong; of truth again s
falsehood; ol spoliation against all that li
eanctlded as ol public or of private right
For long and weary years we have been sui
ferine, until the issue, so made up shall be
distinctly presented, not only here, but ic
every State, city, town and village in the
United Stales. I am opposed to whatever il
Ttj le which can tend to distract or divide
the public attention lrom this issue so made
up. I wish to stand, I would have the people
of the Stat?) to stand, here, and beiore tue
people of thc United states, upon this issue,
aud to ask judgment according to the prooi
which can be produced. I do not fur one mo?
ment doubt wuat will be the judgment, it we
present that issue, and that only, which I have
stated calmly, faithfully, fearlessly. It is one
in which we have all advantages, for it
Is Odd so stroug in prooi that It can
never fall, unless we give to those with whom
we contend the great advantages of assailing
the motive with which we make the charge,
or the means with which we propose to estab?
lish lt. The suffering wnlch the war produced
is not forgotten, aud the apprehension of in?
ternal dlsorder,or violence - will, for years yet
to come, be regarded as sufficient to Justify all
measures'whien-may be alleged as necessary
to suppress them. Our most bitter loes are
those who. find it most easy, by the use of
cabalistic terms, which had a meaning in ol her
days to distract the Judgment of the honest by
an appeal to a recurrence of scenes that we
may hope will never be again enacted.
In the effort we are thus bound to make to
secure for us and all those who live with us
in this Slate the proteciion of an honeet and
just government, we must strive to secure
prosperity for our people iii the various de?
partments ol life In which labor is essential to
existence. If w* look for success only until
we secure a government such as we desire-a
government which will recognize the rights
ot al1, and protect them us ?uily as they are
j recOo'Diztd, we will find that we shall lose
boib. Ii ls because o? the indomitable ti;

At the call of the president, General Wlln
6. DeSaussuro rose and said that our clot
like the one alluded to by the English po
had a silver lining this night. There wa

try had pointed to a great future i
the outlet afforded by our milder c
mate. Trade must flow through t
quickest and shortest routes. A great Soul
ern and Pacific road was needed, and Cine
natl was already crying out for some sultat
route. Charleston could not now bo ove
look?d. She possessed the finest harbor
the South, anl he saw seated near the pre
dent one who was bending his' energies lo tl
great work of opening and deepening o
channels. He alluded to one who belongi
to a far-seel Qg and honorable profession ; wi
had investigated the advantages of our hs
bor, and brought the utility of the project?

He proposed a health and welcome to Colon
REMARKS OF COLONEL LUDLOW, U. S. A.
Colonel Ludlow having been introduced b
the president, expressed his thanks for tt
courtesies and compliments which had bee
showered upon him, and which he was glad I
have un opportunity of thus acknowledging I
public to the president and the Chamber. B
was glad to,find that, in the discharge of h!
duty, he had met with their approbation, an
he would bring his full ability to accomplis!
lng the great task belore him. There was n
one more Interested than he, and he hoped I
would be successfully carried out. Ther
co did be no surer agency of success than thl
lor the old "City by the Sea." In concluslor.
Colonel Ludlow asked permission to offe
"The Charleston Chamber of Commerce
may lui Integrity and ability be two eyes
(and capital ones, too, Mr. President,) ti
guide the City by the Sea to future wealth am
Mr. John Hauokel next alluded to the im
portant services rendered the city by the pres
ent postmaster, and the Interest he had alwayi
manifested In her welfare. Charleston wat
Indebted to him, and he proposed the healtt
ot Stanley G. Trott, the courteous official
and true gentleman.
REMARKS OF POSTMASTER TROTT.
Mr. Trott said there waa an old proverb
which went to show that men of letters were
not often possessed of great facility of speech.
The two graces did not generally travel in
company. He, as they well knew, was a man
of letters. [Laughter.] He was much In
i debted to the complimentary call upon him,
I and was glad to express publicly his thanks and
I gratification that his efforts to serve the pub.lo
had been acceptable, and In fact successful.
1 He owed much In Charleston to the courtesy
and Indulgence of her merchants an J people
at large. He hoped soon to add to his de?
partment a free delivery. The law regulating
the matter required that the community
should number fifty thousand, but there was a
discretion left to the postmaster under certain
restrictions, and no effort' should be wanting
on bis part to afford every facility to the
public. He would relire now behind a senti?
ment which must meet with a hearty re
fponse. He offered "The health of the Hon.
Alfred Huger-an official whom any one
might be proud to succeed, and a gentleman
whom few could hope to emulate."
At the end ol the applause elicited by this
sentiment a telegram was handed to the presi?
dent to the astounding effect that Great Bri?
tain had declared war with the United States;
Confederate bonds had gone up to 48$; United
Statee securities fallen to 46. Victoria re
jjlgned,and the Prince bf Wales ' "coronated."
Ia the excitement which ensued, B. S. Bruns,
Esq.. was loudly called for, and the r?pertoriai
pencil stood aghast at the Idea of following
bim, as he rattled OD lu his fluent and happy
vein. Patriotic sentiment?,'the broker's pecu?
liar I iles, Locksley Hall and the Wandering
Jew all came in fora touch, and. amid COL
: tinual interruptions bf laughter and applause,
the speaker took bis seat with a flourish about
the great kingdom where reveille and tattoo
were always going on at the same time.
Mr. Geo. R. Walker responded io this, and
the Impromptu sentiments and toasts now
followed each other In quick succession. The
party broke up at a late hour, having had a
glorious evening. _
