Severe ?nd Destructive Storm of Wind
and Rain-Hoof* Blown Off, Tree? Up?

molished-Sullivan's Island Swept by j
Last Saturday, tbe city was again visited
with a fierce storm of wind and rain, which
left in its track many serious evidences of its
fury. The morning was bright and clear, a
little badness of the atmosphere only inter?
cepting the rays of the sun, but there was a
noticeable degree of sultriness In the air,
which portended a cora lug storm. Soon after
noon a low bank of clouds, Just above the
western horizon, began to rise and to In
. crease In volume and density. At tbe same
time tbe wind,- which, daring the morning, had
been blowing a slight" breeze from the west,
gradually acquired strength until at ubont two
o'clock lt rose to a gale, and with'the clouds
piled thick and black in the western hair of the
heavens, the storm burst in all Its fury on tbe
city. The scene contained, as well as Its ele?
ments of discomfort and danger, something
of grandeur. The black masses of clouds
seemed to whirl down from dizzy heights, and
as they converged lurid flashes of lightning
darted from one to tbe other, or sprang with
tongues of forked flame dorn to their com?
mon enemy tbe earth, while the vaulted sky
rang with the roar of this battle of heaven's
artillery. The rain lell fitfully and spitefully
1 H gusts and showers rather than in steady
streams, bot tho wind made up In violence
lor any lack of fury In the fall of rain. The
wind was mainly from the west, and sweep?
ing through the crowded streets whirled great
clondsof dust high in the air, darkening the
face of the earth and blinding the few un for?
tunates who could not get to shelter. The horses
seemed exposed to the greatest discomfort,
and they planted their feet firmly and wide
apart,'pnt their beads down doggedly to es?
cape the storm, and shook with fear oranger
lathe meantime, shutters were banging wild?
ly to and fro, signs swaog around and some?
times fell from their fastenings, aw Binga were
ripped up like paper, trees writhed and twist?
ed as ll In agony, and now and then great
branches would snap off like pipe-stems but
with a noise like musketry, and whirl ?owu to
the deserted streets. Nor was the damage by
the florin confined to th?*Be comparatively
valueless objeoiB. In several parts of tire city, :
as win be found recorded below, bouses were
unroofed, windows shattered and chimneys
demolished, and on Sullivan's Island, where ,
thestorm seemed to sweep with especial fury,
great damage was done to property and serious
injuries Inflicted npoa several persons. The
shipping in the harbor escaped with little or
no damage. ' One schooner was blown from
her mooring at|Adger*s wharf, but with no
serious resalta, and no other accidents bave
been reported. It ls probable that the threat?
ening aspect of the clouds gave sufficient
warning to the small craft with which the
barbor ls generally filled, and these were not
backward In getting Into positions ot safety?
_Ar nigh* ti&Jfyam ?a? ronAPPrt, und. ??fl .
time there was more rain than wind. The
wind continued to whistle mournfully round
the corners, and to rattle the casements
viciously, but Its fury was spent, and but little
further damage was done; bat the raia swept
down la sheets sad torrents, and the thunder
growled and rumbled la a way particularly
uncomfortable to weak nerves, and seemed to
triumph over the demolition that had been '
accomplished la the afternoon.
INCIDENTS OF THE STORM.
At five minutes to two o'clock, a three
story wooden residence on the east side of
Klug street, near Line, the lowest floor ol
which ls occupied by Mr. A. M. Cohen as a
drug Blore, was struck by lightning and con?
siderably damt geri. The bolt struck the east
end o? the hotu>o, and after tearing off that
part of the roof and completely demolishing
a dormer window, passed down the chimney
to the second floor where it tore up some
bricks and then passed out without more
damage. Tbe upper stories of the house are
occupied by Mr. J. Bischoff, and a cumber of
small children wera at play la the east room,
bat strange to Bay cot one of them was hurt
la tbe slightest. Mr. Cohen, who was at
work in his store,-was stunned for a moment,
and several.of his cases, drug vials, ?fcc, were
upset, but no damage was done.
The frames of two large buildings which
bad Jost been erected by the carpenters id the
western portion of tbe burnt district, one oo
New and: the other on Council street, were
blown down and entirely ruined.
A WHIRLWIND IN WENTWORTH STREET.
On Wentworth, one of the' best shaded
streets of the city, tbe devastation among, the
floe trees along the sidewalks was sad to ti?
bold. As the tempest struck tbe city tbe west
ead of tbe street was filled with a thick dust,
which was borne high up above the houses in
vast olouds. and heralded the approaching
storm. ?I rushed down quickly and through
these clouds could be seea the branches ot
trees, limbs, shingles, slates, ?kc, whirled In
every direction by the force ot the wind.
Tbe trees swayed aod groaned and the
?barp cracking of tbe large branches
could be heard at intervals followed
by the crash upon the pavement. The
nooses shook sad many rocked to and fro
witta an unsteady motion suggestive af earth?
quake and divers terrible things. A oar was
caj|ght In the storm while passing through the
street, and tbe flying missiles and tailing
branches fell continuously upon the team as
they straggled through the dense clouds. The
falling of the trees, Ac., frightened the animals,
and threatened destruction to the car and.
riders until they reached an open place on the.
Btreet, and the conductor baited until the fury
of the storm had blown over. Jost behind
he car, near the corner of Coming street, af
large tree was blown down and fell with tre?
mendous violence across tho railroad track.
THE TRACE Off THE STORM.
When the storm bad subsided, the whole
leogtb of the street was strewn with fallen
trees, limbs, fences and other debris. Large
brandies were lying ot a distance from the
trees from which they had been wrenched,
and every tree bore deep and lasting marks of
the terrible ordeal through which it bad
passed. Fence palings, gates, frames, trap?
doors, ?c., were strewn about the street In
the utmost disorder, along with other evi?
dences ol tbe storm too numerous to men?
tion. The city carts and laborers were put to
work at once removing the wreck, and the
loaded carts worked rapidly to and fro. The
trees and limbs across the railway track were
cut away and removed, and, as ihe sun came
ont later ia the afternoon, the street cars
were again ruonlog; the heavy rain had laid
the dust, and the streets began to grow less
forlorn and more attractive.
Along the upper part of Meeting street, the
huge posting boards, targets with which i
gale has a trial of its strength, were t
away like cards. The long fence ot Dr.
beck's residence was blown down, an
sharp paling fence along the east side c
Citadel Green was prostrated along the
walk, forming an effective and impro:

Part ot the large shod over the Savanna
and Charleston Railroad was also blown of

side of the river, was also blown lrom tb<
wharf, and two truck cars were lifted iron
the tr.vck and badly shattered.
The phosphate works at the mouth o
Wappoo Cut were materially damaged.
From the city the squall swept over the ba;
and about 2 o'clock struck the western end o
Sullivan's Island. Its approach was plain!;
discernible by the clouds ot dust which en
veloped the city and the agitation of th?
waters, as the caps of the waves were swep
off lo white spray. Hie winds seemed to rust
from the west and north, and as they met ft
whirl In a terrific tornado, and sway fron
side to side as the violence ot the one pre
vailed over that ol the other. As lt struck thc
Island the white sand drifted up in clouds anc
filled the air along with shingles of other sinai'
missiles ot every description. On every sid*
abouts and screams could be heard as men and
women hurried to and iro to make things se
cure. The houses, which are mostly bulli
on high pillar?, rocked and swayed os the hur?
ricane rushed by, until the occupants In seve?
ral Instances prepared lo abandon their homes
for fear of being crushed to death beneath
them. The strength of the squall fortunately
passed north of Fort Moultrie or otherwise
the loss of life and property along the exposed
line ot beach must have been fearful,

?nhe wind was visited upon anew frame
house on the extreme western point of the
island, Just being built for Mr. John Slattery,
b?Mr. Solomons. The frame of the house,
wffeh waa to be ol two stories, with four
rooms, had been raised on wooden pillars
eight leet bl?h, and sUuding on the extreme
point offered a fair mark to the storm. The
men at work upon lt saw what was coming,
and were trying to brace it up when the
squall struck. The whole frame was raised
from its supports and dashed over with a
violence that smashed lt Into an undistinguish?
able mass of Umber. Two of the carpenters,
Mr. F. A. Michel and Mr. Frank ?
were struck by the falling ruins,
bolh severely hurt. Mr. Wood having I
ribs broken. They were both
slated to a place of sa'ety, and brought ti
elly on the ferry-boat In the afternoon,

John H. Devereux. The substantial fram

COTTON IN NEW YORK.
Thc Business In "Futures"-New Rate
of Consumption-Brokers'* Contracta.
[From the New York Times, May 21],
A meeting of the cotton commission mei
chants was held yesterday at the old rooms o
the Cotton Exchange ou Pearl sireet, In ac
cordunce with a cad Issued recently, for thi
purpose ot considering the propriety ot adopi
lng a unilorm rate ot co m m Isio ne, to be chargei
on the purchase and sale of cotton "futures,
(contracts for delivery at a future time,) am
other matters affecting the im eres ts of the cot
ton merchants. The loilowiog merchant
signed the call: Norton, Siaugoter & Co.
Smut), Woodward & Stillman, Fielding
Gwynn & Co., Fenner, Bennett tc, Bowman
Inmaun, Swann & Co., Ware. Murphy & Co.
Schawn Brothels, J. H. Brower, ?. H. Bald
Mr. S. D. Harrison, president of the Cottoi
Exchange, was called to the chair, and Mr
Robert Tannahlll was made secretary. Aitei
the call hud been read, Mr. Fielding iutroducet
a resolution staling that it was the sense o
the meeting that toe ml ml mu m raie ot cern
mission charged on contracts for future dellv
erv shpt! be one and a half per cent, where nc
cotton is received. As in stock aud gold
transactions, cotton is frequently bought and
sold through brokers and commission mer?
chants, without tn?-re beln-j any actual trans?
fer of the cotton Itst-lf. Where there is such
transfer the commiB-?ion and brokers' charg?e
are higher. Alter some debuie the resolution
was carried, as was also anameudmenr, Intro?
duced by Mr. Fenner, Inserting the words
.?without renale." BO as to prevent the rule
being violated by any return of the money
Mr. Hollis moved that a committee of five be
appointed to cooler with the colton merchants
generally, (the meeting not having been as
largely attended as was desired,) to state to
them the action taken by the meeting, and
embody their views In a report to bc presented
at a future meeting, to be called by the chair.
Tn? chairman appointed the following, io
which he was added, on a subs?quent motion:
Messrs. Hollis, Tannahlll, Slauguter, Fenner
Mr. Fielding moved lhat hereafter, on all
transfers and extensions of future contracts io
a later period for delivery, Uie minimum com?
mission be one per cent. O.her rates were
suggested as substitutes, but, finally, on mo?
tion of Mr. inmann, it was resolved that the
rate be three-quarters of one per cent.
POLITICS IN THE STATE.
- m i
THE STATE CONTENTION.
An Urgent Appeal by thc Central Exe?
Aa some misapprehension prevails In refer?
ence to the call Issued by die central execu?
tive committee, we beg to make a statement j
touching the authority under which we acted.
The committee, ol which v?e are members,,
was appointed by the State Democratic Con-|
veuilun which met here on the 7th of August,
1868, and, like the National Democratic Com?
mittee, of course, continues in existence until |
superseded by a new appointment, or ls abro?
gated by the same authority that created
lt. As it ls tue only organization in the
State which could properly take any ac?
tion in response to the call made by the
National Democratic committee for the
assemolage of a Natloual Convention, .we
thought courtesy to tue national committee,
as well as duty lo the people, required nome
steps on our part. Acliug upou tut-se views,
and in accordance with a request that wei
should do so, we suggested tue propriety of
our people meeting lu convention in order |
that they might consult and take such action
as seemed best lo them. In view ol the grave
questions wnich will come before the conven
tton that Is to meet here, we deem it of great
Importance that all parts of the State should
be fully and ably represented, and we venture
to express the hope that every county ulil
send a lull delegation. The National Demo?
cratic Con ve nt io a will be torced either to
place its own candidates In the field, or to
give Its sui pott, open or implied, to those
of the Cincinnati Convention. The South
preter?, almost unanimously, the latter al?
ternative, and If we wish to make our
support of the Liberal movement of any avail,
we should use every legitimate means In our
power to secure the endorsement of the nom?
inees of the Liberal Republican -party. Wheth?
er it ls the best policy tor the Baltimore Dem?
ocratic Convention to meet or notts no long-r
an open question. It hus oeeu called together;
all the otuer Southern States have responded
to the call, and us lt ls of the last consequence
that the whole power of the South should be
exerted there to protect the interests of our
people, we are decided in an opinion that our
Stale'Should be also represented. But of;
course this Isamatiertbatbelongs exclusively
to thu convention, nnd we only exi>r? ss our
own Individual convictions, being entirely sat?
isfied to leave the whole subject to be deter?
mined by the proner authority.

whether the Siate will be benefited. It may
be that we shall bo called upon only to change

we shall gladly avail ourselves of any local
Influences that may anee to help the cause ol

tor State relief upon inside imlu-nces. or
upon reform within the lines o? the Radical

THE EXTRA SESSION FRAUD.
Thc Honorable Timothy Hurley's Views
ot the Question.
CHARLESTON, S. C., May 22,1872.
[A. 0. Jones, Esq., Clerk of House of Repre?
Sm-I have received from the hand3 of the
secretary of a caticu3 of senators, held at Co?
lumbia, ? copy ol au address proposing to
call an extra session of the General Assembly
ou the loth ol June next. I desire to say that
I cannot approve of the movement. His Ex?
cellency Governor Scott ls nowa candidate for
the office of vice-President ci tho United
8tates, and will no doubt be strongly urged for
that position by the delegation from this State.
Being a personal lriend and warm admirer
bl his Excellency, and of his financial ability,
his great luve of truth, his steadfast adhe?
rence to hu friends under all circumstance?,
without an enemy. I would not do anything
that would prevent his leaving the State tu
hil so honorable a position, wnich, lu his
opinion, he is so eminently qnal fled to fl 1.
Should he b*? elected, aud flu the office with
the same ability and pop'ihritv ( ?) that have
characterized his ad inmigration lu Smith Car?
olina, he cannot but receive the c unmenda
tlon ot the entire country. lu addition to th?
foregoing, I am opposed io an extra session,
whtcn would necessitate the Governor havtny
weekly receptions during tue heatel term"
and at a time, too, when he is almost penni
lese. I never expected to Uve to see the
day when I shonli have any personal feeling
In reference io the President of ihe United
States; but the manner In which he has
received the many statements of the
Governor in regard to the condition of affairs
In this State, politically and financially, (?ee

Klox committee, card Bighed Scott, Parker
and Dennis, in New York World, November 6,

vember 28,1871, and any other statement you
can imagine,) compels me io desire that ex?
tremes should meet, and that Governor Scott
should be placed on the ticket with him. For
these reasons, I am opposed to an extra ses?
sion, and they should be sufficient to every
man who has at heart the welfare of "our be?
loved State." Very respectfully.

who bad ceased to hold Judicial pusliiuus
when secession commenced, aud subsequently

There were about two hundred and illly offi?

lett their places to aid the rebellion, and of
these probably not one-half are now alive.
The law, however, ls ambiguous, and the ex?

Conrad, of Louisiana, ex secretary ot war,
and possibly some, other?. Henry B. Jackson,

Kentucky, were foreign remisiers, and are,
therefore, embraced lu these exceptions. It
ls bard to es I mate precisely the number slid

Tne lolly of retaining these exceptions, in
addtilon to the almost criminal error ol an
ambiguous statute, upon a subject where seve?
ral penalties attach to un < Mender, is exhibit?
ed by a glance ut tba number and character of
persons wno are relieved. These embrace
uot oniy many ol' the most active advocates
of secession, but also some who, since ihe
war, have been persistent "Bourbons," aud in
bue or more cases persons who distaln a par?

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
The Cincinnati Nominations Growing
Still more Popular-The Grant Ring
Playing their Last Cards-The Public
Linds Swindle-Improvements in the
District-The Homoeopathic Conven?
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
WASHINGTON, D. C., May 24.
Mr. Greeley's letter of acceptance of the
Cincinnati nomination hos created a profound
Impression here among people of all grades of
political belief. Among his outspoken friends
and earnest supporters, lt ls rcierred to os a
document full ot. utterances which will, find a
sympathetic echo In the hearts of the great
mit-s of the American people. Among the. wa?
vering lt is making an influence in favor' of the
Cnsppuqna farmer whlcQ excites' the liveliest
apprehensions in adm nun a' ion circles, where,
lt is plain to be seen, its manly and patriotic
sentiments have been received with Hie same
sensations as are experienced by a sick child
upon ihe first administration ot a disagreeable
dose ot medicine. Mr. Greeley baa acied with
a wW-dom which cannot, be too highly com?
mended, in waiting uni il he could f rm a f di
es'lmale of the effect of his nomination on the
public mind, before replying to the let
ter officially noilftlng him of the action
of the Liberal Convenllon. Having as?
certained ihe lemper ti ihe people
in the most unmistakable ronner, he hos given
to the country his reply, and no honest man
who reads lt cati hesitate for a moment, OB tc
the duty ol the pre-ent hour. Amnesty, suet
as has at leugth been wrested irum an un
willing Congress-amnesty only partial-ha
come too laic io serve General Grunt with th.
South. This sogai-coaiod pill hos been hele
back for ihe last j, ear for the very purpose o:
ben g administered at this particular lime
with ? vi-w of thereby allaying the opposllloi
to Grant's re-elect lou. which lt was foreseei
by the Radical lenders would be a formidabli
element in the canvass this fail. The dodge ii
so exceeding thin that nu Intelligent man li
the'Suuth will lall imo the trap. It was a kv
card with the Grant adherents, and they hav
played li at a period when lt can only be re
garded as a desperate expedient to make voie
lor the party which has kept the South unde
carpet oag misrule until mat people nava
been rendered insolvent.
Now tbat tbev Bee the handwriting of de?
Teat on the wall, the Gram officials, kept in
training iur every species ot dirty work, be?
gin to devise and concoct new slanders
against the S : a th, 1 n order to perpetuate sec?
tional bate. Their latest Infamy ia ibis re?
spect ls i he Insinuation of a belief that the
"real rebels" Io ibe South are tbe authors of
(be Greeley movement, believing tbat with '
bim at the head of the nation they can inaugu
rate another secession rroveinent for the
Soutb, with great chanca c success. To this
outrageous calumny they append reasons. tba
coinage of malicious brains, which furm the
basis ot a plausible case, to the effect that Hr.
Greeley lo such aa event would prefer to eee
i he boutb go quietly eut of the Union rather
than make another war to keep the country
together. How strone io contrast with thia
spltetnl and mendacious talk are-the noble
words ol Ur. Greelev. who. In referring to tbe
declarations of the Cincinnati platform, sajs:
"I regard them as the basis of a ixue, benefi?
cent, national reconstruction, ot a new depar?
ture from jealousies, strifes ,and bates,' wrtob.
have no longer adequate motives or even a
plausible pretext, imo an atmosphere of peace,.
iraternlty and good will"
There ia at present an Indication tbat the
Senate will ask the House to unite In po-ipoR
ine the adjournment until an early day In
J une. Oue nf the many reasons for this is "he
tact that a number ot land and otner money?
making Jobs which have got through, end
others yetto be passed by the Senate be lore ad
jourriment, will fall to be of current use to ihe
senators and lobbyists who have engineered
and are to engineer their passage, unless they-,
are promptly carried through me House. - In
otber words, that there can be no "nivev "
until the work is complete. Doubtless both
houses will agree upon a resolution' charging
the time axed for adjournment until the SOui
. Strangers visiting Washington ara Btrnck
with I he great changes which the past few
years have produced upon tbe appearance ot
the city. Its growth and lmpi o vernen t In
other regards are remarked with admiration,
und each year adds largely to the list of
wealthy persons irom abroad wbo Invest In
real estate bera and build paiailal.winter resi?
dences. Thus each session of Congress wit?
nesses tbe gathering of wealth and lashfon tn
i he National Capital, which augments its im?
portance in the social as well as the political
point of view. . . . .~w...
