COLUMBIA, S. C., December 12.
A comparative cai?*, has succeeded the tur?
bulent scenes of tne last two days, and this
morning's session, of both houses of the Gen-1
eial Assembly, was of the usual free and
easy but peaceful and uneventtnl character*
The Senate bad abrief but somewhat Impor

The bill provides that Insurance companies I
iromttther States doing business In this State
may deposit either Stale or United Sutes I
bonds with the comptroller-general of this I
State for the protection of their policy holders, I
. at their option, instead of bonds ot the State I
of Sooth Carolloa as ls now required by the
law. The bill further gives the comptroller-1
general, upon proof of the Insolvency of a
company, the power to sell as much of tbe
bonds on deposit as may be necessary, with
cut an order of court as ls now required, and
devote the proceeds to reinsuring holders ol

' Senator Gaillard, colored, of Charleston, in?
troduced a bill to regulate the Inspection and
measurement ot lumber In the City of

the rounds of several com mlltees was dually I
lost tight of. He also Introduced a bill to re-1
new oBd extend the charter of the Charleston

pany, Ino provisions of which were described
upon its introduction a lew days ago in the

ary Joint Stock Company. This Is a measure
desired by the State Agricultural and Meehan

of the annual State Fair. The Incorporates
named are Hessrs. B. C. Shiver, John B.
Palmer, Wm. 0. S warfield and others, andi
power 1B given them to ase any means they I
may think proper "to develop and promote
the agricultural, mechanical, manufacturing
and mineral resources of the Stale, tor the I
?-emotion ot Immigration, the elevation ot
ber and laboring people, the encourage-]
ment ol stock raising, and the temperate ad-1
vancement and cultivation of turf and field
sports." Tbe capital stock of the company is

creasing the same to $200,000, and with au?
thority to go Into operation upon $10,000

tober In saoh year during the continuance of
this charter, and be devoted entirely for pre?
miums, prizes and rewards at the fairs of the
said company, wbleh shall be held annually In
the City of Columbia.
The Senate next proceeded to the considera?
tion of the matters upon Its calendar and took
the folio wieg action :
The bill to repeal sections 5, 6 and 7, of
chapter 83, of the General statutea received
Its final reading In tbe Senate, was passed and
gert to the House.
The bill ceding to the United States the Ju?
risdiction of the State of South Carolina over
certain lands In the County ot Darlington, was
also passed and sent to the House. Tnese
landa are situated near the Town of Florence,
are used as a mlltary burial ground, and
known* as the National Cemetery, and the bill
^provides that the Jurisdiction thus ceded shall
.not be ?vested until the title to the lands bas
been acquired by deed or grant from the own
fra thereof, and duly recorded; that the United
States shall have jurisdiction only so lou
the lands are used for their prefect purpi
that the State snail have concurrent Juris
tlon la certain cases, and that the prop
shall be exempt from State taxa'lon.
The bill to define the number of trial
ces for tb? County of Aiken was also pas
This provides for the appointment of e
trial Justices for the new county, the ms
terlai quota of which bas never before c
The Joint resolution to authorize the coi
commissioners of Abbeville County to le'
special tax of two mills upon the dollai
provide, lt is supposed, for the consequei
of the extravagance of those officials as
potted in the recent presentment of the gr
jury tor Abbeville County, was passed
sen t to the House.
The bill to repeal the general license
was sent back to the judiciary commit
which would seem to snow that this lm]
taut measure is not likely to pass the Set
so easily as it seems to be going through
Bouse; and the bill by Senator Owens
make appropriation lor the payment of l
the salary and mileage of the members of
General Assembly, and salaries of the sut
d??ate officers and employees, and other
penses Incidental thereto." was referred
the finance committee. This latter meas
ls suposed to originate in the very natl
desire on the part of the members for a li
pocket money, for use during the Ube
holiday reces?, which they have voted to-<
to allow themselves. It will be remembe;
that last winter a law was passed fixing
p iy of members of ihe General Assembly
six hundred dollars per annum Instead ol
dollars per diem, but no provision was me
as to how or when this salary should be pa
It has been stated that Treasurer Carde
proposed to pay the amount in quarte
instalments, either in their respecti
counties, or at the 8iate treasu
and lhere ls no doubt that some of the
Incipient statesmen would find such quarte
Instalments very convenient and accept ab
but there appears now to be a unanimous c
eire among them to set the whole or a part
their year's pay as soon as they can In a
way manaste to do so. A bill has airea
been introduced In the House providing 1
the payment ol these salaries In one amou
at the end of eaoh session, and the bill h
every prospect of an easy passage; and nc
comes another proposition lo pay one-half
the salary immediately, or at least as foon
.he money can be obtained at the treasury I
the purpose. The bill Just introduced pr
vldeB for the appropriation of $150.000 for it
purpose, and, with the customary modesty e
blblted by the members ol thia Leglslatu
when their own claims are in question, it
expressly provlJed, "That the treasurer
hereby authorized and directed to pay ll
said certificates at his counter, prior to at
other claim or claims whatsoever, and to ho
the certificates as his vochers therefor; and 1
Is aleo authorized and required to retain !
the treasury sufficient moneys from Incomlc
taxes to meet the demands ot such orders <
The question of the publication |of the ucl
of the General Assembly In the newspapers i
the Stale was azain discussed In l be Sen au
and the sweeping prohibition proposed a fe
days ago against the publication ol any <
these laws id any of the papers was effectual
disposed of by the adoption of the unfa vor.
ble report of the committee on printing. O
the other band, the House concurrent reeoh

character and general Interest, was conan

The bill to fix the time for holding tb
April term of the Supreme Court was passe?
to Its third reading, as was also a bill to In
corporate the "Grand Lodge of Abstinence o
the State o? Sou th Carolina." This Utter bil
as Its title indicated, provides for the estab
llshmentof a rather ambitious temperance
and benevolent organization with an author
ized capital ol $50,000, to be exempted fron
taxation, and with various other rights anc
powers similar ts those enjoyen by the hlghei
oodles ot the Msgonio order.

A MAX KILLED, SKID SED AND CUT
The Explanation of Him Who Did i
Deed-He Remains In .the Custody
the Sheriff; as the Theory ot Scir-Dc
fence wlil not do.
The Wilmington (Del.) Gazette gives
particulars of a horrible homicide which oe
curred in Dover on tho 2d instant, the victim
being a colored man named Henry Turner,
and the perpetrator ta yonng man named
Isaac C. West, Jr., twenty-nine years of age
and practicing as a professor for the cure
of pulmonary diseases. West, it appeara, bad
a laboratory lu his establishment in which
there was a gasometer of his own, which he
employed lu his profession. Occasionally he
obtained the assistance of Turner to carry
water and do similar service. On the eve
nlng of the day above mentioned the house
was discovered on fire, apparently from
an explosion In the laboratory, where
after the fire was extinguished, a dead
body was found, minas skin, head, hands
and feet. Underneath the body was discov?
ered a bole, containing a quantity of gun
powder. It was at first supposed that there
had been an explosion of gas, and that the
mutilated body was that ol tbe young profes?
sor, but a suspicion soon arose that lt was all
a plan devised by him to obtain by lodirect
means insurance to the amount of $25,000
which he had upon his own life. The matter
remained a mystery until Friday last, when
tbe professor reappeared in Dover and dellv
ered himself up to the sheriff, confessing that
he had killed Turner In self-defence, and also
confessing where he bad bidden the head
hands and feet of his victim. Tbe remains
were found In the places indicated, and the
coroner's Jory was assembled, when tbe pris
oner made a confession, ot which the follow?
log is the substance :
On the day of the murder, (Monday, the 2d
Instant,) Turner had been em ployed, by West
to perform several small Joba, and was to have
come again In the evening lo West's office to
carry water. In the evening, accordiez to the
words of the prisoner, ri passed him and
went on ap lo my office; I bad just got th-re
ind unlocked the door when he Ct mn up; I
went on up stairs ahead of bim, and unlocked
the room door up stair?, and went lo ahead; I
had taken my gasometer to pieces that day,
intending to fasten A small Bledge hammer to
the weights; the sledge hammer was sitting
lust Inside of the door; the other weights were
aver in the corner, about eight feet further on;
sne of the weights was a bolt, or piece cf an
iron axle; lt was about two feet long and
ia Inch and a quarter In diameter; I just
lot over about where this bolt was sit?
ing, when I turned and Baw Turner with the
jledge hammer ia bis hands; as he found that
? saw what be was doing, be said, 'Give me
pour pocket-book, or i'll kill you !' I then
matched up a bolt or a piece of axle, and Just
ts I did so he struck at me with the sledge
lammer, the blow falling on my hat, denting
the hat In. but lt did not touch my head, as I
ivas stooping over; I thea struck at bien with
;he bolt or axle, intending to strike him on
;he head, but I missed his bead and struck
lim on the neck, below the ear; he fell and I
lon't think he ever kicked afterward; this was
list after sunset; he fell over on his side; I
.ben lelt of him; felt his pulse and found he
was dead; I did not intend lo kill him, but
3D ly intended to knock bim down so that
ie would not kill me; (atler a long pause
;he prisoner continued:) I then lelt the
)ody lying thero and came up to William G.
fountain's Hotel ao<i gr?t my supper, and
lldo'i go buck any more uutt uveningi btu i
went back again on Tuesday morning about
len or eleven o'clock. I then thought I would
:ut Turner In pieces and carry him off and
Dury him; so I cut off his head, haods ano
teet with my penknife, (knife here shown,
had four blades, and was Identified by the
prisoner as the one he did the cutting with,)
[ cut off his head ami feet wiih the penknife
inti skinned the body; that Is the kulfe,
(pointing to lt,) which iles on the table; I
broke one of the blades cutting the bones; 1
broke several ot the bones with the piece or
axle; Ibis was not all done before dinner; I
lon't know how much I did do before dinner;
[ went lo dinner that day, but do not know
the exact lime; do not remember positively
whether I was back to my office ofter
jinner or noi." After maklug several in?
effectual attempts to dispose of the re?
mains, the prisoner continued : "1 then re?
mained la my room thinkiag what to
do, and then concluded I would tear a
large box I had to pieces and make a box that
would hold the remains for the purpose of
?hipping them on tne Delaware Railroad to
nome point aud then follow and bury them;
[ lound thal lt was getting late andi I couldn't
moy ss; ?a?'t than night; on Wednesday I
iidu't go back to my room until about nine
o'clock In the morning; I thea fouud the re?
mains smelling BO I could not ship them on
the railroad; I got my dinner At the hotel that
day and was about la different places till
the alterooon; I returned to my office about
two o'clock tu the afternoon, wnen I took my
knife and cut the lips aud nose off the head,
Intending to skin lt, and also cut some
pieces from the abdomen; I then struck the
nead with the bolt or Iron axle, for the pur?
pose of mashing it up, so that lt could not be
recognized, but found that I could make no
Impression on ll; I was afraid If I skinned the
head lt would still retain its shape aad be re?
cognized; after this I took the head la a
bucket, took lt down to the lime heap near
the railroad, and rolled it la the lime, and
thea raked lt baok ia the buoket and carried
Lt to the place where I burled lt; I returned to
my office about ten o'clock tbat night; I took
the bucket aad put tbe skin in lt to carry lt
away; I then went out on the street with lt
and ssw some person coming, when I took lt
back to my roora again; I then took one of the
feet nod poured some alcohol over lt, thinking
that It would change the color of the foot by
setting lt on fire; I set lt on fire aad split
Borne over the floor, which also ignited; I had
that night, before tbat time, piled the box
over the body, placing the small pieces on top
of the box; lntendded, lt the alcohol did
ohauge the color of the skin on the feet, to
spread the skia out oa the floor aad change
the color of lt by burning alcohol on
lt; I lound that the alcohol would
not change tho color of the akin; I
Intended, If lt did change the oolor, to
put the s Aa back oa the body, and flt lt as
well as I could; when the alcohol on the floor
caught Are, I gathered up the feet, bands and
skin in my hands and got out of the room as
8000 as I could, fearing the powder I had there
would explode; I thea tried lo extinguish the
flames, but failed; after getting outside I walk?
ed toward the Methodist grave-yard with the
feet, hands and skin, and buried the skia
alongside of the railroad; I thea started to get
the bands and feet to bury them, when I heard
the whistle ot the four o'clock train; I raked
some lime over them, then went up io the
depot and waited there nntll the train came;
when it arrived I went on board with a bundle
ol my clothes and went to Delmar.
Tue prlsooer signed .a copy of this confes?
sion, and the coroner's Jury returned a verdict
in accordance with the facts presented. West

THB STEW CONGAEEE BRIDGE.
Lexington and Richland One? flore
[From tao Colombia Phoenix.]
The bridge over the Congaree Elver, de?
stroyed by the retreating Confederates on the
morning ol the 16th February, 1866, has at
last been rep laced by a substantial structure
thirteen hundred and forty feet long, and ele?
vated fully five feet above the former work.
The credit of the construction of this Connect?
ing link between the two counties ls due to
ex-Comptroll Neagle, who, Impressed with its
importance, pushed ahead and made the ne?
cessary arrangements for Its erection. It was
a stupendous undertaking. Tba style of the
bridge ls known as Post's pateot combi?
nation truss, and was erected by the Watson
Manufacturing Company, ot Paterson, N. J.,
under the uuperlntendence of Ur. W. J. Pie?
leet, Colonel J. P. Low being the engineer.
Tbe structure ls calculai/"! to bear one thous?
and pounds to the running loot, which ls only
one-sixth o:f tbe actual streng! h. The Iron
was persona lly tested by the engineer, at tbe
works In Paterson, and every defective piece
thrown out. The grade on the Lexington side
Is ODly temporary, and will soon be put In pro?
per condition. A side railing ls also being
erected. At hall-past five, yesterday after?
noon, the debris having been oleared away,
Dr. Neagle and Colonel Low, seated In one
veblole, Messrs. Mercer and Pleleet In a seo-1
ond, and followed by several other vehicles,
passed to tte Lexington side, and In a short
time returned. The bridge ls now opened for
trafile. Tho rates of toll, we are assured, will
be made satisfactory. Mr. A. D. J. Hayes has
been appointed toll-keeper.
The Senate, In executive session, on Thurs?
day, confirmed tbe following appointments:
