THE TAX LEVY ENJOINED.
JUDOS MELTON PUTS A QUIETUS ON
THE EOUETEEN MILLS TAX.
Til? Ltvy of Two Taxes In One Year
Declared Unconstitutional, and the
Levy for Interest Unauthorized.
[; PECT AL TH LSG KA il TD THU NBW8.]
COLUMBIA, November 18.
As was foreshadowed lc these dispatches
lait Saturday, an application was made to-day
before Judge Melton at chambers for an In?
junction restraining the county auditors and
county treasurers from levying and collecting
the tax ordered to be levied and
collected by the comptroller-general on
Thursday, the. 14th Instant, for general
purposes. The Injunction was granted on
the grocad' of the unconstitutionality of
the Joint resolution authorizing the levy and
collection because the said joint resolution
appropriated the proceeds of the taxes to the
fiscal year commencing November lat, 1871,
' for which fiscal year a tax has been levied,
collected and appropriated and disbursed al?
ready, thus violating section 3, article 9, of
tbe constitution, which prescribes one annual
tax for each fiscal year. Judge Helton also
enjoined the levy and collection ot the tax to
pay fte Interest on the public debt on the
?round that the comptroller-general bas no
authority to make the levy without fnrther
It ls currently reported by many of the
members elect to the Legislature from the
Third Congressional District to-day tba' they
will Immediately hold a caucus to d?nouai
the course of Congressman Elliott in being a
candidate for the aenaiorshlp. A call to this
effect ls, lt Is said, to be issued to-iay. .The
grounds' upon which lt ls based are that he
should be satisfied with being returned to
Congrega, and that If he intended to ba a
candidate for the Senate, he should have de?
clined to run for Congress.
Tho proceedings regarding the (ax levy
have> sent Patterson senatorial stock down,
and that clique are wearing long faces this
afternoon. There are seventeen new sena?
tors and only twenty-seven old legislators In
the House. Scott ls Jubilant over his chances,
counting the new members his friends. This
contest is taking a queer turo. Members
Who are here in lar^e numbera feel, if one Is I
to. Judge from'their language, that If they I
vote for Patterson their constituents may say I
they did so for money, while they could vote
for Scott, even if some compensation followed, J
and they would not be accused of it. !

Whether Honest John will manage , to switch
off his opponent and send them Scott free, ls I
by no means a certainty. Every daj develops
new plans, and latterly Scott's chances have

Patterson's rooms are those occupied by
Neaff le over the saloon near tbe Statehouse,
during the Stats convention. They are
arranged for business. The iront room has a
cheerful fire always burning In the fireplace,
while liquid fire lu a seemingly Inexhaustible
and venerable looking bottle awaits the
arrival of the thirsty members from the rural
district?, to whom and such others as may call,
its neck ls alwayB on the stretch. The floor I
has been profusely sawdusted-a significant
procedure. In the rear of this room ls the

yon could speak in a man's ear without being I

past and.prospective, may have upon the pro-1

who apparently depended upon an early deel

believed by few.
Looking at the composition of the next Gene

an Improvement on the last-it would not be
uolust to surmise that their retiring brethren
had inspired them, by example if nothiDg

QUEER SCENES IN A NEW YORK MAD
Groi ?que and Ghastly Oayety.
The New York Bun gives aa amusing re?
port or a grand ball at the Lunatic Asylum,
Ward's leland, a few evenings since. We
At precisely seven o'clook, about forty female
lunatics entered the gymnasium. They were
attired In all sorts of costumes. The dresses
of some resembled nightgowns, while others
wore several suits of clothing and looked like
travelling old clothe* establishments. Some
wore jockey bats trimmed with ribbons of all
the hues of the rainbow; others imitated the
Dolly Varden style ot drees, but all were neat
and cleanly, orderly and very lady.iike. A few'
moments later nearly as many men arrived.
They wore every kind of costume, from the
homely garb ol the Institution to the well-cut
clothes of a fashionable Broadway tailor.
Some of them carried on their persons a ward?
robe so large that lt must have taken years to
accumulate, while others, wearing cotton
gloves of all colors, were BO thinly habited
mat they almost hugged the red-hot stove In
the corner. Both men and women were ac?
companied by their keepers.
THE GUESTS. r?
Soon the physicians entered, escorting
their lady guests. Several ot the older
patients crowded about them on their en?
trance, and in the politest manner compli?
mented the yoong ladles on their Improved
appearance, and requested to be allowed to es?
cort them io supper. Some spoke of their last
meeting In the Hotel de Ville at Paris, others
had met on the Continent, one had seen the
lady to whom he was conversing In a Callfor
na gold mine, and one poor lunatic told Miss
Sherman that together they had swam across
the Bed St>a nearly four hundred years ago.
Alter Dr. Kellogg had spent some time in
coaxing two very obstinate patients to begin
the performance, one of them seated himself
at the plano while the other began tuning a
violin. The pianist was not very tractable.
He positively refused to ' play wlinout his
notes; bu v. when at length a cunning lunatic
placed a sheet of paper before bim on which
were written the words ..Do not spit on the
floor," he suddenly began playing an over?
ture from Strauss. The execution was admi?
rable. Tue pianist was Bernard Qalllerre, a
religious monomaniac, who believes that the
Supreme Being ppeaks to him every night,
and that he alone, ot all his friends, has con?
versation daily with the angels about the
throne. Mr. Gluber, the violinist, also a good
performer, Is subject to nts of melanoholy,
und at times ls very dangerous. He imagines'
himself a great military man, and dresses in
the fatigue uniform of a United states soldier.
A TEN THOUSAND DOLLAR CERTIFICATE.
The master of ceremonies was Henry Vas?
quez, a Cuban, whose father ls a general In
the revolnttonary army of Cuba. Vasquez is
a victim of emotional lnsuuliy. He killed bis
mistress aoout three years ago lo New York,
and lt was said al the time that $10.000 was
paid for his certificate of insanity. He ls also
credited with having killed two women lo
Cuba. He dresses elegantly, but is undoubt?
edly a ms.n more to be teared than pitied.
After the dance, a stout old gentleman entered
the room. Hts hair and beard were as white
as the driven snow; he wore a green patch
over one eye, black kid gloves, seven coats
and vests were on his back, and he carried a
broken umbrella In one hand. In the other
hand was an old bat, bedecked with long black
ribbons and Ailed with grass and weeds. These
he divided imo small portions, and distributed
as bouquets to some of the female patients. A
most polite bow, a gallant speech, and then
the presentation, after which he was Intro?
duced to the reporter as Dr. Peutz, and thus
uSir, I am wealthy. I own two millions of
land on Blackwell's leland. Slr, I am Lord
Blackwell. I make yon Lsrd Selkirk. Ladles,
(in a loud tone,) this Is Lord Selkirk. I am

kirk's father at the battle of Piper Heldsleck.
Now, dr, (In a lower key.) I will make yon

so was I, slr-but be never did any good for

Duke ol Washington says so, slr, and tell bim
that lie ought to go to Europe and remain
there for eighteen years.
While tbjs conversation was going on Dr.
Taylor was trying to Induce the musicians to
play a waltz. Tneywere obstinate, and one
refused to begin bet?re the other. For a lime
lt seemed not improbable that the ball would
prove a failure, but at length Gall ierro gave
In, and Dr. Taylor waltzed with Kitty Doyle,
an unfortunate girl afflicted with hereditary
The next dance was a galop. The most ex?
traordinary dancers In lt were Charles Gray,
commonly called ''Charley the Tailor," and
Misa Carr, a Spiritualist. Charley, who danced
as though he was tied up In a sack, imagines
that all the ladies are In love with him. Miss
Carr thlnkB ebe ls Queen Elizabeth, with Im?
mense wealth and valuable diamonds, and her
crown and sceptre locked up In New York.
The truth is that Miss Carr was a lady of sur?
passing beauty and attraction*, as well as ot
education, with brilliant conversational pow?
ers, when she became the petted mistress of a
wealthy English nobleman. On tne continent
a Spanish nobleman became enamored with
her, and they eloped to Cuba. There the
Spaniard deserted her, and an American trav?
elling agent fell In love with ber and took ber
co California, where be died. He, on his death?
bed, willed her fifty thousand dollars, which
ebe spent In one year-one relic only being
leit; lt is a pawn ticket for a locket set with
diamonds, worth five hundred dollars. This,
and a lew silk and satin dresses and some
laces comprise the poor creature's all. She ls
THE FINAL JIG.
It then being half-past eight o'clock, Dr.
Kellogg asked his lun?tica to dance a Jig be?
t?re they retired. At this their dull eyes
seemed to become bright, the look of Idloclty
left i hem momentarily, and all Jumped upon
the floor anxious to dance. Even the musi?
cians seemed to catch the Inspiration, and
they rattled off a lively tune as though the
destinies of a nation depended upon the
speed. Then the lunatics began to dance.
And euell dancing ! Fanny Elssler, Bonfantl,
Stanley and the Majhtons were all eclipsed.
While dancing the jig some stepped the Ger?
man, others danced the polka, some waltzed,
others imitated the Shaking Quakers, and
some even essayed the cancan. Some seem?
ed bound up wirri ropes, while others appear?
ed to be double jointed. Some danced with
the peculiar air of a Southern darkey, while
others skipped with the grace of a gazelle.
A. T. STEWART'S MANSION.
There was Thomas Reynolds, one ot the old
Bowery boys whose insanity was caused by
drink and dissipation, and who thinks be has
all the Ills that flesh is heir to, dancing with
Miss Anna Brennan, who Imagines she ls the
wife of a prominent physician who married
her for her property. She claims to own the
house ic which Mr. A. T. Stewart lives at 34th
street and Fifth avenue. At nine o'clock the
keepers mustered tbeir patients and marched
them back to the asylum. All were evidently
much pleased and beuentted by the evening's

NEW TORE, November 15.
Adversity bas Its uses. The late crushing
defeat of both factions ol the local Democracy
by a minority parly has taught them the fu?
tility of attempting to beat each other In the
face of the enemy. Now that the election ls
over and the discomfited politicians see the
offices pasaing Into possession of BepDbllcanB,
more prudent reflections arise, and they begin
to sigh for a reunion of all the Democratic ele?
ments preparatory for future warfare and the
recovery ot the city patronage.
Tammany and Apollo Hall are about to come
together. The hatchet ls to be burled. The
obnoxious leaders oh both sides are to go Into
temporary retirement, new men are to come
to the front, the old banner ls to be untnrled,
and the Demooracy are again to present a
solid front, with 50,000 majorliy, lo the enemy.
Hr. Barrett, one of the OTJonor electors and
a magnate of Apollo, and ex-Sheriff Kelly, on
the part of Tammany, are arranging for the
1 Tbe movement in Ohio lor a reorganization
of the Aatl-admlnUtrailon party nods no echo
In this section yet. It ls Impossible from pres?
ent appearances to say what course our Dem?
ocracy would take if a strong Liberal party
were started inthe West. The World, which
since Mr. Marble's return to Its columns, hag
resumed Its old position ot antagonism to Mr.
Greeley and his protectionism bobby, argues
against any abandonment ot the Democratic
party name or organization. The Cincinnati
Commercial, speaking for the Western Lib?
eral Republicans, Insists that the Democrats
shall merge themselves with the LloeralB, un?
der a new name, or "the match ls off." Alter
matters settle a little the question of the lor
mal dissolution ot the old Democratic party
will come up for discussion. One thing ls
certain, the lately ohrlstened Liberal party
was not killed by the result of the election.
There Is au tnstanoe of Its vitality lo Brook?
lyn. Last Tuesday night the Liberal Repub?
lican general committee of the county met
and resolved to continue Hs organization,
dropping the name ''Republican" from Its
title, and arrangements were made lor the

Nast retires from the campaign this week
Wlih two scurrilous cartoons In Harper's
Weekly, one of which ls In his oest style. He
represents Grant aqd Brother Jonalban shak?
ing hands over tne "bloodless sarcasm,"
while in the gulf, over which the earth is dos- ?
ed, the Democratic and Liberal Republican
leaders lo the late campaign are tumbled pro?
miscuously. Most ot the obaraciera are group?
ed around, as in Doro's Danie's "f uferno." the
picture of abject despair and woe. Whitelaw
Reid, with his hand frantically clasping his
forehead, leans against the Tribune hand
organ, wotch In torn is crushing the life oat of
poor Marble, of the World. Carl Schurz, with
his bands thrust down into his breeches pock?
ets, lies at full length, the embodiment of
speechless misery. .Andy Johnson, with that
unmistakable nose, ls imploring the rocks to
tall on him. Everywhere around thia awful
cavern you may recognize the bope-lorsaken
countenances of the Greeley campaigners
Seymour, Frank Blair, Fenton, Trumbull,
Cochrane, Sumner. Fernando and Ben Wood,
Belmont, Kilpatrick^ Oakey Hall, Sweeney,
Tweed, (who, on the contrary, worked for
Grant,) Theodore Til ton, (with tho Life of
Woodhull,) and the reef. High over all,
caught In ihe closing chasm by the tall of his
white overcoat, bangs Horace Greeley, head
Political caricaturing was never before In
this country carried to such ll ce uso. Mast, In
bia attacks upon the opponents of Grant, was
vicious. The Bame may be said of his spirit in
the uncalled for attacks upoo the Roman Ca?
tholics. His pictures were not calculated to
excite good humored mirth, as caricatures
should, out they roused anger and bad t;lood.
No man can look on with patience when his
religion ls vilely lampooned, and the friends
of public personages feel the same indignation
when the faces and forms of the people they
reverence are twisted by the artist Inlore
semblanee of brutish animal". Throughout
the campaign Nast has made Hr. Greeley look
like a hog or a baboon. This mu.-c have been
the result of puro malice. Neither the artist
nor the Harper Brothers are to be thanked for
Introducing this style of slander into our poli?
tical contests. They intensify tholr bitterness
and sow the seed of bad passions, whose fruit
will be borne In the future.
Poor Matt Morgan was forced to follow In
the wake of Nasr., and answer brutality with
brutality, but the comparison of the work ot
the two men ls so much to the disadvantage
of the former that I doubt If Grant's admirers
felt very bad y over the cartoons In Frank
Leslie's. The most effective caricaturist oo
the Liberal Bide was Ballow, who sketched for
the Fifth Avenoe Journal. His very latest ls
a colored print of Grant as emperor. The
despot sits oo a throne, rigged out like the
old English monarchs lo the m?diterai em?
blazonry. There ls a crown on his bead, the
royal robes sweep the floor below his feet; In
one hand he graspB a sceptre, and In the other
be holds the round ball emblematical of the
sovereignty of the world, and his nose Is
painted very, very red. There is something
very ludicrous lo the combination. The
picture ls not as ill-natured as Nan's repre?
sentations ol Greeley, and yet it steps a little
over the line of propriety.
Father Tom Burke is making quite respect?
able headway against Mr. Fronde In his
lectures at the Academy of Music. He bas
la.ge, and of course enthusiastic audiences
of his country men. He replies to the English
champion lecture for lecture, the course being
five, and uses the same titles as Mr. Froude
to each. Last night the subject was "Ire?
land TJnder the Tudors." Father Tom made a
furious onslaught upon Mr. Froude's hero,
Heory VIII, and repeated all the old historic
charges against that lively monarch's charac?
ter, which the English historian supposed be
had effectually disposed of. It is pleasant to
observe the courtesy with which the two dis?
putants treat each other, particularly as the
subject ls one over which Anglo Saxon and
Irian Celt are wont to get quite heated. In?
deed, some of the Irish weekly journals of this
etty are finding fault with Father Burke for
handling the controversy with gloves. But the
Dominican is a gentleman and a fair-minded
Lord Dundreary has taken possession of
Wallack's Theatre', and will remain for several
weeks. Mr. Southern's engagement Is lor the
season, I believe, and he will appear In some
of his other characters-David Garrick, for
instance. The dramatic sensation of next
week will be the debut of Miss Neilson, the
London actress, in America. She makes her
bow as Juliet, at Booth's Theatre. Lithographs
of a beautiful young woman, with her name
appended, appear in the shop windows on
Broadway. She comes with a reputation lor
remarkable talent and personal charms.
Among the other dramatic events, ls the open?
ing of a new theatre away up town on Fifty
eighth street. It is a first-class house, built
expressly for opera and the drama, and will be
known as the Terrace Garden Theatre. The
season begins with the. German opera com?

The Fight for the Philadelphia Post

ron-Victory for Civil Service.
[Correspondence of tue Baltimore sun. j
WASHINGTON-, November 15.
As anticipated in last night's dispatches,
' the President to-day turned a deaf ear to the
appeals ol the leadltur Republican politicians ol
i Pennsylvania and Philadelphia, and respect?
fully declined to appoint their candidate for
postmaster of the latter city, tor the very go rd
reason that he Intended to adhere to the rules
of the civil service commission and promote
the deputy postmaster. Ic ls needless' to say
that this decision created quite a consterna?
tion among most of the delegation, who
were headed by Senator Cameron, Governor
Harixao11 and the mayor and other olty and
State officials of notoriety, and wbo, through
the mayor, bad made a special request that In
view of the great political services they had
rendered In the late oampalgo,the civil service
regulations should not be applied to the Phila?
The President, however, saw no reason why
he should not adhere to his position, even In
a political view, as the civil service system
was endorsed in the fifth,plank of the Phila?
delphia platform, and evidently did not attach
much Importance to the declaration of tbe
mayor that the Republican party In Philadel?
phia did not think much ol the reform system
In appointments, and that a postmaster outside
of Its rules would prove of far more benefit to
the party organization there. Several of the
delegation after leaving the Executive mansion
indulged In severe comments on the Presi?
dent's course. One member of the Pennsylvania
Legislature declared that li the civil service
rule bad been simply applied to the President
In the late campaign, be would not have been
promoted to a second term; while another
irate one prophesied that such a sj stem of
political reward would rend the Republican
party Into atoms. The formidable and repre?
sentative character of the delegation, who
came from a State tbat gave tbe President
145,000 maj orlty, certainly gives the occasion
of to-day and Its results a position of Impor?
tance In the administration and before the

WASHINGTON, November 15.
The Phlladelpbiaos who arrived here last
night moved In a body oq the Executive Man?
sion at eleven o'clock to-day, tor ihe purpose
of urging the President to appoint George
Truman, of the firm ol Setter, Price Sc Co., ot
Philadelphia, successor to Postmaster Bing?
ham, who has been elected clerk to the Court
ol Quarter Sessions. A sub committee, con
elating of Senator Cameron, General Hart?
nett and Sheriff Leeds, had previously called
on the President to fix aa hour for the inter?
view and were Informed that he would receive
them at once. A messenger was accordingly
dispatched to order the army ot politicians to
move. They were marched to the President's
office and arranged themselves in the form of
a hollow oqnare abont the table where Cabi?
net business ls transacted, prese n tl og the good?
ly arraj of thirty of the champions of the Re?
publican party In the Keystone Bute. Senator
Cameron Introduced' the gentlemen, after
which Mayor Stokeipy, on behalt ot the dele
gatton, announced that they b id cu led In the
Interest of Mr> Truman, and expressed their
views when he said that his appointment
would be eminently satisfactory to the mer?
chants of Philadelphia. He then alluded to
the recent victory In Pennsylvania, which he
attributed mainly to effective organization, to
preserve which was the desire of every
Republican In the State. The servlcea of Gen?
eral Bingham had contributed largely lo the
good result, and he had no doubt but that the
appolntflsjat of Hr. Truman would tend to
perpetuate the organization. It bad been In?
timated to him that civil service reform would
be In the way of the President's granting this
favor. He hoped that where so much good
for the party was to be aooQtnp)|sbed the civil
service rules would not oe enforced.
During these remarks the President be?
trayed a little uneasiness, as be IB not In the
habit of listening to lectures on political mat?
ters. . i .
Aa soon as Mayor Stokeley concluded the
President elevated his head, and, scaming
the delegation, said, In a low tone, that ll was
his wish and desire to carry Into practical
effcci civil service reform, and the Republi?
can party bad adopted lt as a plank In their
plat form. Io the present case he felt disposed
to enforce the rule. He bad examined the
recommendations of both Hr. Truman and
Hr. Fairman. The latter had an excellent
record, was recommended by those who were
the best judges of his qualifications, and be
felt In duty bound to consider well bia claims
for promotion. If he went outside the
rules he would appoint Mr. Truman.
Adhering to them he should appoint Mr.
Fairman. These remarks demoralized the
politicians, and it was Impressed on the mind
of every one present that the President was In
earnest, and Mr. Truman, notwithstanding the
poweriul Influence of BO many distinguished
politicians, had qo hope for the office. The
President by way ol explanation, said that he
did not wish them to understand that he was
bound by the rules in all cases. Where there
was a deserving and well endorsed public ser?
vant, he should promote bim whenever the
opportunity offered. It' the person in office In
line of promotion was not a proper party to
appoint, he would not adhere to the civil ser
j vice rules. This ended the interview and the
delegation withdrew, breaking ranks under
the portico of the Executive mansion.
In the corridors ot the hotels this afterooon
the President was abuted by the disappointed
visitors, and remarks anything but complimen?
tary to his administration or fitness for the
office freely Indulged In. They seemed to
think him ungrateful lor their services in re?
electing him, and only wished they bad known
that this treatment was in store for them
during tho cumpalgo. The result, they
thought, would have been different. The
friends of the President and advocates ol civil
service reform rejoice at the stand taken, and
there are assurances that tba highest offices
in the civil service will be filled In this way.
The Philadelphlau8 left to-night for home.
The President, after the Interview, informed
General Bingham that he would appoint Hr.
Fairman In due lime. Mr. Bingham does not
go out of office until the 1st of December.

Eighteen senators were sworn In, and the

the speaker of the last House, who bolds over
under the constitution till his successor Is
elected and qualified, called tbe House to or?

five representatives presented themselves,
and were sworn In by the speaker, and this
number not being a quorum, the House ad?
journed until twelve M. to-morrow.
Every member In each house who appear?
ed at tbe capital to-day was a Conservative.
The Republicans met at the United States
court-room and organized, with a member of
each branch In the chair. This makes two
Legislatures In Alabama. Five Conservatives
are absent, but will arrive to-night. The three
at Marengo arrested yesterday bold certldcates
of election, but they have been carried to
Mobile. This would make fifty-three Conser?
vative members In tbe Conservative branch,
and fifty-one Is a quorum. The Republicans
are said to bave sworn In fifty-two

three from Marengo and three from
Barbour, but who do not hold certificates

-The celebrated Hr. Cook ls sending his
"Programme ot Tourlsis' Tickets" all over the
world. He offers himself, or one of his agents,
tor the office oi courier, not as usual only
through one city or country, bat from the
commencement of the journey to Its end
from Cornhill to Cairo, or any other place
within the limits of civilization. The traveller
puts himself In the hands of Mr. Cook, pays
him a certain sum, and dismisses all care.
He finds his hotel bills paid, his car tickets
taken, bis guides polite, and beggars kept at
a respeciful distance. His choice of routes
ls wide and diversified. He can go by sea or
ral), or, we presume, in Germany, at least,
by canal boat, if he chooses. Through Italy
alone Mr. Cook offers the bewildered tourist
the choice of seventy-two different lines of
travel, averaging In cost about one hundred
dollars, and taking In time irom three to four
months. A tempting array of names does Mr.
Cook set forth. Basle and the Shine, the
Splugen Piss, Mentone, Nice, Naples, Borne,
the SU Gotthard Pass, over the Brenner,
through Holland. Belgium and Switzerland,
the Mt. Cents tunnel and France, Lucca, Flor?
ence, Heidelberg, Baden-Baden-are all ming?
led In persuasive enticement for the selection
of Hr. Cook's friends.
-The famous maelstrom, which has been
the scene of so many thrilling stories, ls In
reality a very tame affair, and would never
recognize itself in the turbulent picture drawn
by the romancer's pen. An English tourist,
writing of lt from Norway, says: "Every year
hundreds of our countrymen row over lt,
doubtless bathe In lt; for, except at certain
periods, and undeccertaln conditions of wind
and tide, lt ls comparatively harmless."
-A thoughtful writer suggests lhat every
firm of architects should contain at leist one
lady partner, to plan pantries, closets, shelves,
hooks, and places to tuck away things In
dwelling houses; an evident necessity which
erchiteots of the male persuasion have hitherto
failed to comprehend or provide for.
