AN EVENTFUL HISTORY.
The Gerrymandering Bill-Outrageous
Action or the Radical Senators In the
: lanena te r Election Car?e-The Charles
ton Water-Works Bill.
COLUMBIA, S. C., February 15.
The proceedings today In both Houses of I
the General Assembly have been accompanied [
with more than the usual amoufft of oratory,
and, as a consequence, the amount of buel
- ness transacted has been exceedingly small.
The lower bouse amused Itself during the
whole of Ks long and tedious session with two
characteristic debates, which were as useless
as they were prolonged, Inasmuch as it was
?vident from the votes that every member had
tully made up bis mind upon both the subjects
in dekate before the farce* beean. The first j
dispute was upon the gerrymandering bill in?
troduced by Yocom, and known as a "bill to
divide the State Into five Congressional dis?
tricts," with the substitute offered therefor by
L. Cain. This substitute was this morning
withdrawn, and another offered by the
same member, which makes the fifth
Congressional gerrymandering scheme pro?
posed this session. The object of this
party of great moral ideas in each of these
schemes is, of course, to spread out the
colored majority of votes In the twenty-two
counties possessing such majorities, so as to
nui if y the white majority or votes In the
other ten counties and the white majority o? |
intelligence and property all over the State,
and there is but little choice of evils between
the lot. A sensible proposition was made, or |
attempted to be made, this morning by It. M.
Smith, the member lrom Spartanburg, which
was to the effect that the districts should be
leit as they are now. and the additional repre?
sentative allowed by the new Congressional
apportionment be elected from the State at
large, but this proposition and its author were
choked off by a cali for the previous question,
and Cain's substitute was adopted by a vote of
flay-nine to forty. This substitute proposes the |
following ingenious division ef counties:
Fifth District. .
Lt Xing ton.11.988
The next sensation was the discussion of
the general appropriation bill, prepared by
tb? comm Rte. J on ways and means, and the
substitute therefor which was recently Intro?
duced by Lee. and which lt may be remem?
bered provides for a State tax of fifteen mills,
and county taxes of two and a hall mills on
the dollar. This substitute was debated for
two weary hours by E>iih, Smith, Boseman,
Hayne and others, and finally referred to a
special committee of five, consisting ol Messrs.
Hayne, Jones, Thomas, Jamison and Rivers,
with orders to report to-morrow. There ls
every probability that this bill will pass. The
united brethren are pushing it with all their
force and influence, the argument in its favor
which appeals to them, and ali the other mem?
bers, being that it authorizes the treasurer to
cash their pay certificates, which, after ail, is
the nearest and dearest subject to the hearts
ol these model legislators.
ID-the Senate this morning the report of the
committee on privileges and elections, in the
contested senatorial election case of Phin. B.
Tompkins against F. A Clinton, the sining
member lrom Lancaster, met with a very
cavalier reception, being promptly kilted and
buried by the following well known parua- J
mentary device: The report being called up,
Mr. H tyne moved that lt be laid on the table.
This being agreed to, Mr. Smalls moved to
reconsider the voie to lay on ?the table, and
tben moved to table the motion to reconsider.
This motion prevailed, and the report of the
committee, and all hopes ot unsealing Mr.
F. A. Clinton, at leest during the present ses?
sion, were dead beyond resuscitation. It was
all done in a breath and greatly to the disgust
of Mr. Corbin, whose name was the only one
signed to the report. That gentleman was
highly Incensed, but In view ot the irrevoca?
ble action of the Senate, he could only allow
his indignation to explode In the following
I.r?test, which is certainly about as Btrong as
tidies can make lt, or Its grammatical com?
plications w?l allow :
I protest against the action of the Senate
whereby the case of Phineas B. Tompkins,
contestant, against F. A. Clinton, contes?
t?e, was summarily disposed of, In favor of |
?JA A. Clinton. This action, on the part of the
Senate, is unprecedented. This case has been
pending: before the Senate during nearly two
sessions. A full and careful Investigation has
been had. Both parties have had the full?
est opportunity to produce testimony, and be
heard by themselves and counsel before the
committee on privileges and elections.
That committee have finally made a full and
elaborate repoit to the Senate. Now, the
"Senate have. In the absence ot the chairman
of the committee, who made the report, called
?up the case, and, without paying the report
the poor compliment ol' reading, summarily,
In a minute. Irrevocably disposed of the whole
question (contrary io the report) in favor of I
the sitting member.
I protest against such action because lt
demonstrates to the world that thia Senate,
havlDgalarge Republican majority, will not I
even hear before lt decides upon the rights of
the parties to this contest, and the rights of j
the people ot Lancaster County to represen?
tation upon ibis floor.
I protest against this aciion as unconstitu?
tional, unjust and an outrage, and as fasten?
ing upon the Republican majority of tbls Sen?
ate a stain not lo be effaced by time.
D. T. CORBIN.
Mr. Corbin also resigned his position as a I
member of tbe committee on privileges and
?lection?, and in this he was lollowed by Mr.
Wilson, of AnderaoD.
Mr. Clinton then rose to a question of i
?ieee, and he desired to say mat he rose,
in defence of himself, but to express bis g
tude to senators who, he was proud to
lleve, had not proved recreant to the duti<
an American citizen. He desired olio to
that if he entertained the slightest doubl
his right to a seat in this body, or that he I
it not in accordance with law and justice,
the expressed will of a majority ot the vo
of Lancaster County, he would at once vai
lt. But, from his personal knowledge, he
convinced that be held his position as sen
from Lancaster by a majority of the v
cast at the last ceder?] election. He beg
leave to again express his gratitude, not
the zeal exhibited by senators in his bel
but that they had, by their act, expresse
sentiment so much desired by himself-an
pression ot sentiment perfectly in accorda
with the true and correct return ol the ma
i ty ol the people of the County of Lan cat te
This matter being thus settled to the e
neut satisfaction of at least one of the se
tors, Hr. Whlttemore introduced a bill to
tnorize the subscription of certain lands to
capital stock of railroad companies of i
State, which provides that,- in order to fat
tate the construction of railroads In this Sti
It shall and may be lawful for owners of la
under mortgage, Judgments or other Hens,
life tenants, all trustees and guardians ol
fants holding lands for the benefit of tru
to subscribe not exceeding one-half cfs
lands to ihe capital stock ol any railroad c<
pany chartered by the State which may be
cated within ten miles of such lands at a val
tlon to be assessed. Lands so conveyed to
freed from all such ?rrt'.titlons, trusts, ?
provided that If the railroad company s
scribed to falls to construct the road wit:
three years along tbe proposed line such c
veyances are to be void and of no effect.
Mr. Whlttemore also introduced the iolli

who shall receive an annual salary of $500.
This bill has every prospect of an easy passage,
and lt has the support of the whole Charleston
delegation In tue House, although it will
doubtless be stoutly opposed by one Charleston
clique, which can furnish as many as three
trial Justices almost any time without going

THE WATEREE FRESHET.
'Reminiscences of the Hocott Freshet
Travel not yet Resumed.
[Prom the Camden Journal, of Thursday.]
As a grand finale to the perfect floods
oi rain that have recently fallen in the upper
portions of this county and above ir, the
Waleree on Tuesday last came booming out I
ol her banks and soon the entire swamp lands
and level grounds on both tides were over-!
flowed. Not content with a medium sized
display ef water power, the freshet became
higher and higher, until on Saturday It was
pronounced the most extensive that bas been
known In this neighborhood for upward of |
twenty years. The knowing ones pronounced
"the Hocott Freshet" a perfect baby
by comparison, though that was con?
sidered a very high one. The above
named freshet derived Hs name from .a cir?
cumstance connected with it. in which that
well-known lormer fellow citizen, Mr. D. D.
Hocott, figured extensively, lt appears that
he was caught on the western side of the
river by the hluh water, and being desirous of |
returning to Camden veutured to try the ex?
periment in a bateau with the assistance of a
colored sei vant. He started out, but had not
quite reached the river proper ere the boat
capsized and the occupants came near finding
watery graves, but fortunately tbe Umba of a
friendly tree received them, and they
scrambled up Its trunk out of reach of the
water. Here, however, they were not much
better situated, for their boat had floated away
and they bad no visible means of escape from
?their perilous situation. Their cries, after
some hours, attracted the attention ol persons,
who procured another boat, and after great
difficulty succeeded In rescuing them in a hali
frozen condition, It being just this season of |
the year, and very cold.
On Saturday two little boys, ODe white and
the other colored, went down on the dam or
level to hunt rabbits, which the water had run
out lrom their hiding places in great numbers,
and while engaged in the pursuit unfortunate
ly tell or slipped Into the water, which bad
broke the dam and was running through the
gap very swiftly, and the colored boy was
drowned. A tree near by saved the white
boy, who managed to extricate himself and ,
oame into town with bis story. Parties went )
down and recovered the body.
As a matter of course, tbe rall fences were
utterly demolished, and, judging from the
number floating all around In the waler, the
'.fence law" prevails here at present, whether
adopted by the Legislature or not. Bridges,
too, unless strongly secured, also fared badly.
Coming down to statistics, we have been in?
formed by a reliable gentleman that the wa?
ter reached four inches higher than hos been
known for twenty years, and places were cov?
ered which ure usually not reached by very
high water. Up to the time we go to press
the river Is still high, and travel can scarcely
be said to have been resumed.

Good "Words for Charleston.
[From the Abbeville Medium.]
What Carolinian has not visited Charleston,
the beautiful '"City by the Sea ?" If there be
any such, he has lived In vain, for he does not |
know the true greatness of his native State,
her progress and her resources. Recently
business required us to go lhere, and we saw
much ot which we may indeed be proud. The
South Carolina Railroad, which has for so
long a time extended Its blessings through
our State, carries you from Columbia, uon
time," and Sweeny, from the Emerald Isle, will,
for a ''compensation,"' put you down ata first
class hotel convenient to business. We were
pleased with the principal streets and such J
business houses as we entered-very much
pleased, considering the dull, damp, rainy day
on which we were'there.
Along the wharves we found business
flourishing briskly. Dray after dray rushed
past, with Its detestable clatter, loaded with
merchandise ol' every description, going and
cominsr. A majestic ship loaded to tue guards
with "King Cotton," was just about to swing
out on its boisterous way across the Atlantic.
Near by a number of great size guns were
lying, ready for shipment to some point In
Commerce makes wealth, and with such ad?
vantages, there ls co good reason why
Cimrleston should not be a more important
place. Llbertv and enterprise in trade would
soon have this* tendency. We have great ex?
pectations for the city. The magnificent Cus?
tomhouse, rising In splendid pr?portlons,glves
promise of greai mercantile prosperity.
The market Issn Interesting fea'ure lo a
countryman fond of good ealing. It is crowd?
ed with every thing substantial and every
thing delicate that an epicure could desire.
The city government lias much improved of
late. The new mayor Is very highly esteemed,
and ls the right roan in the right place.
We would write much more about the city
her great men, her flue hotels, ihe Academy
ot Music, the great Thomas concert, h??r great
newspapers aud publishing houses, her street
carf, her churches and cemeteries, her de?
lightful and magnificent residences, but we
will walt for the next trip.

Collier's appointment to a judgeship, In eva?

William Fowler, member of Parliament for
Cambridge, addressing his constituents, dwelt
at length on the Alabama case. Alluding to
the claims of the United States for indirect
damages, he said England should not bluster,
nor should she submit to be bullied. He be-1
lie ved the country, to a man, had made up its
mind. If their American cousins wanted mo?
ney, they would have ic come and take lt.
The Times considers tba situation to-day
more satisfactory. It denies that a quarrel
wns sprung because Mr. Gladstone feared the
effect of the Intrigues of Messrs. Disraeli and
Dilke, for norning could be more unpopular in
England. The Dally Telegraph does not credit
the report that the reply to Lord Granville's

TURPENTINE IN HEADACHE -Dr. Warburton
Begble (Edinburgh Medical Journal) advocates
the use of turpentine in the severe headache
to which nervous and hysterical women are
subject. "There ls, moreover," lie says,
"another class ol sufferers from headache, and
this ls composed ol both sexes, who may be
relieved by turpentine. I refer to the frontal
headache, w tilca ls most apt io occur al ler pro?
longed mental effort, but may likewise be In?
duced by unduly-EUSialued physical exertion
what may be styled the headache of a fatigued
brain. A cup of very strong tea olten relieves
tliis form of lieudache. but this remedy, with
not a few, is perilous, for, bringing relief to
pain, lt may produce general restlessness and
-worst of all-banish sleep. Turpentine, in
doses of twenty or thirty minims, given at in?
tervals of an hour or two, will not only remove
the headache, but produce in a wonderful
manner that soothing Influence to which re?
ference has already been made."
-The human nose ls a most unruly member,
surpassing in his ungovernable impertinence
and persistent obstinacy the tongue against
which St. Paul launched his invective. A
man's nose makes or mars him. It hangs out
the banner of alcohol, or equally olten falsities
most basely the character of Us owner's
habits. It turns or hooks down, and as the
case may be Inflicts much misery upon men,
and we may say women, ot too sensitive
natures. It has been the one personal feature
that ait has not assay, d lo retouch, except In
(he way of a slight dab ol poudre'de riz on
occasion, until a recent reported discovery of |
a treatmeut by means o? electricity which
effects a change of color. But a yet further
advance ot science ls advertised by a Mr.
Alexander Ross, ot London, who agrees io
change the most obstinate nose Into any de?
sirable shape by the application of his "Nose
Machine" lor the space of one hour dally. One
cannot doubt the popularity of this melhod,
which places nasal beauty within the reach
of all, and enables each possef-sor of a
nose to model that organ to any shape which
his taste or fancy may dictate. The inconve?
nience of submiting to a nose-Bqueezmg for
one hour a day ls nothing to what many now
endure for the sake of compelling beauty In
other parts of the person, and in due course of
lime an Inquiry after me progress of one's
nose may be as familiar a courtesy as a ques?
tion as to the state of one's health.
A. LIVELY TIME UT CONGRESS.
Congressman Beck Blakes a Personal
WASHINGTON, February 16.
Collector Boob bad a long bearing before
the Senate finance committee on the rice and
salt question. In the Senate a bill reviving
the land grant to -Lue St; Croix and Superior
Railroad was passed. The discussion on tba
resolution of Inquiry respecting the sale of
arms was resumed. Adjourned. '
HOUSE.-Beck made a personal explanation,
answering Brownlow who attacked bim by a
written speech in the Senate. Beck reviewed
the history of Tennessee during Brownlow's
Governorship, showing that Brownlow had
made it a pandemonium. He was repeatedly
interrupted by points of order, but Blaine
supported by Banks, ruled favorably for him!
In the course of his speech Beck said :
"What is said about a pandemonium in Ten-1
nessee is said about all the other Southern
States, and a good deal more about some of
them. One man, Davis of Texas, was looking
me in the face when I said ir, I said more
against Governor Bullock, of Georgia, who sat
by his Bide, afid they are not all cripples; not
all imbeciles. I have never told a Ile, and I
am prepared to prove every fact I have stated
here or elsewhere. They thought they would
put a man to speak against me, ot whom they
could Bay. that be is a cripple. That he cannot
I write, that he cannot read, that he cannot
walk, and they shield themselves be?
hind b}m. Tbey. are not all . cripples :
all the rest of tnem eau walk. I will
prove what I said, against every one of
them, and it is because they know tbat I will
dolt It is because Reed, of Florida, and
Foot, of North Carolina, and Davis of Texas,
and all of them know that I will prove it; be?
cause they know that I have been prominent
in getting up a report which will be before the
country in less than a week, that they are try
iBg to blacken me, so that when people take
up;the report and read lt, they may say. oh, lt
is that fellow Beck, who was a negro driver,
that says this. That ls their game that is
the reason why they selected a poor old im?
becile to attack me." Disavowing any disre?
spect to the Senate, and quoting Irom its
more glori?os tradltloos, Beck concluded by
remarking that he' had not said anything to
reflect on the Senate, bnt when he saw vul?
tures sitting In the nest of the eagle and
baboons taking the place of the lions, he pro
f' ?ted against the outrage. He wanted' to
keep the Senate pure and high-minded. He
wanted to see the Stales represented by hon?
orable men; not by men who forced themselves
there at the point of the bayonet, or by lraud,
corruption, chicanery and ostracism.
