COLCXBTA, Tuesday, December 17.
The Pattersonlans are trying to torn the
tables apon their enemies. Patterson's ball
to-day surrendered him to Trial Justice A. C.
Blohmond, the select secretary of the grand
council ol the Independent Order of United
Brethren, who, upon examination, found bim
absolutely Innocent of all charges whatever.
In fact, the testimony before the trial justice
waa such as to prove him a singularly im?
maculate gentleman, who bad been most un?
kindly persecuted. He was of course in?
stantly discharged from all recognizances,
and now warrants are said to be out lor the
arrest of Ellison and Miller, who, lt is said, are j
likely to-fare worse than Kirk and Hendricks.
All this was excellently well played, but the
most adroit move of all was the sending of an j
Associated Press message to-night, to be pub?
lished to-morrow In all the papers of tbe
country, gravely announcing that tbe senator
elect had vindicated himself completely from
the bribery obarges, &c. It remains to be
seen whethetber tbe United States Senate
will be satisfied to seat Mr. Patterson, now
that be has been covered with this very thin
?oat o? whitewash. PICKET.

THE PROCEEDINGS OF MONDAY.
Harrying Through the Financial ?lea

days-New Schemes Proposed and Old
[FROM OOH SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.]
COLUMBIA, Deoember 16.
A considerable quantity of important busi?
ness was transacted to-day by each branch of
^be General Assembly, and a disposition 1B
now plainly manifested to rush through at
least some of tbe most prominent of the finan?
cial measures now pending belore them.
TBE HOBT IMPORTANT
of these measures is, ot course, the bill l
authorize a general tax levy tor State ac
county expenses ci the year commencing Ni
vember 1, 1872, and fj'r the deficiency froi
the year ending on that date. This bill, f
has been already reported, has passed tb
House and was received In the Senate lat
Saturday In the shape In which it was repon
ed by the House committee on ways an
meanB, with a levy of five mills for State poi
poses and two mills for schools, flv
mills for d?ficiences and three mill
for county purposes, or fifteen mill
in all. The bill was referred on Saturday t
the Senate finance committee, and this moro
lng lt was returned by that committee, wit
the recommendation that the third item (to
deficiencies) be Increased from five to sevei
m ilia,an d "that two hundred and fifty thouaan
dollars of the amount received by the levy li
this section shall be set apart for the payment o
school deficiencies, and for no other purpose
If so much be necessary." This proposition
If adopted, will bri a? the amount of theta:
up to seventeen mills on the dollar, whlcl
was precisely the amount of the levy made b;
the late comptroller-general, Dr. Neagle, en
Joined by Judge Melton. It ls said that th?
state superintendent of education made i
strong showing before the finance commute*
of the necessity of this deficiency levy foi
school purposes, and it ls probable that In th<
debate upon the bill, which ls expected in th?
Senate to-morrow, somo interesting develop
menta ol the financial transactions ot the pasi
.year may be made.
A NEW COURTHOUSE JOB.
A proposition was introduced to-day, lr
both branches of the Assembly, to authorize
the erection of a new courthouse In and foi
the County of Bichland, to be located, ol
course, at Columbia, and to provide for a spe?
cial tax levy in this county of two and a hali
mills to pay for lt. A petition to this effect
from tbe county commissioners was presented
In the Senate by Senator Nash, and in the
House by Representative Thompson; and a
bill to authorize tho 'building of the new
courthouse was introduced by me latter. The
petition Includes an estimate of ways and
means, which puts the cost of the new build?
ing at $35.000, which 1B proposed to be pro?
vided for by the sale of the present court?
house lot for $18.000, and the lew of two and
a half milla, which will produce $'17,000.
THE ATLANTIC AND SEABOARD RAILROAD.
The Senate committee on railroads to-day
reported favorably upon the bili to amend tbe
charter of the Charleston, Georgetown and
Con way boro' Railroad Company, but recom?
mending that sections 2, 4, 5 and 7 be stricken
out. This bill proposes to consolidate the
railroad named with otber corporations, to
form the "Atlantic and Pacific Seaboard Rail?
way Company." The sections which were re?
commended to be stricken out provide respec?
tively as follows: Section 2 describes the
manner ot electing the first board of directors
and subsequent boards; Section 4 fixes the
capital stock of the consolidated company at
110,000,000, to be increased at discretion; Sec?
tion 5 authorizea the company to issue mort?
gage bonds, and Section 7 provides that any
sity, township or county Is authorized Jo sub?
scribe to the capital Block of the company
J pon a popular vote to that effect.* These
seotions were all stricken out, and the bill
is thus amended waa passed to Ita third
THE SPARTAN3URO AND ASHEVILLE RAILROAD
)lll was also reported back with Important
imendmenls, which were laid over for con?
sideration to-morrow. These amendments
iropose to put it in the power of the Assembly
io amend or repeal the oharter when granted;
.o provide for the manner of determining tb?
right of way according to the general act
upon this subject approved September 22,
1868, and to provide "that the work, for the
Hcedutlon whereof said company 1B Incorpo?
rated, shall be commenced within three years
ifter the first day of January next, and be
completed within five years after Its com?
DELINQUENT TAX SALES.
Senator Hope, Conservative, of Lexington,
lo-day introduced an Important bill, entitled
a bill to repeal the first section of an act enti?
tled "An act to amend an act emitted 'an act
providing for the assessment and taxation of
property,' passed September 15.1868, and all
acts amendatory thereto," paaaed March 12,
1872. This is a long title, and the bill Itself
requires a somewhat extended explanation.
The Legislature of 1868 passed the general
;axlaw named above, and provided, lo sec?
tions 108,114,11C, 117 and 123 of the act, that
iellnquent Taxpayers should be allowed to re?
lee m their landa at any time within two years
liter they had been sold. The General A s?
sembly of 1871-72, however, passed, among
he laat acta of the session, a bill which limi?
ted this right of redemption to a period of
ninety days after the sale, required the delin?
quent to Institute steps for the redemption of
ils property within thirty days of the Bale,
tod repealed the provision whereby property
or which less than one-fourth ot Ita value
?vas offered ut auction, was required to be bid
n by the Stale. The bill now Introduced In
he Senate proposes to repeal all the amend
neals mentioned, and leave the law, in these
-espects, In the same poBltlon as when passed
THE LICENSE LAW.
The Senate committee on finance to-day re
j or i ed favorably upon the bill to repeal the
kate licenee law, passed last win ter, but reoom
nended an amendment providing that the re
>eal shall not take effect until the 1st of April,
873. The excuse tor this is that moat of the
lersons coming under the provisions of the
Ml have already paid up to that date, and li
he act were to be repealed now the State
vould have to refund to those persons the
imount they have paid for the unexpired
lane. This bill has already passed the House,
ind, with thia amendment, it ls probable that
t will pass the Senate, and sweep away a law
vhlch has proven very odioua lo most persons

THE HOLIDAY SEASON.
A STROLL THROUGH. THE DOMAINS
OF SANTA CLAUS.
Christmas Present? and Chrlitmas
We resume the theme o? Christmas and all
Ita festivities, gaieties, passions and social
joye. What would the world be without
Christmas ? In the joy and jollity of the sea?
son men lay aside the feelings that direct them
In the struggle of business, and generosity,
charity, and social, patern.fl and iraternal at"
tachmentB, which are enshrined as the
cherished virtues of religion, predominate.
Bo if Christmas has the buoyancy o? youtb, lt
has the generosity of hnmsnlty and charity;
li lt has the Indiscretions of excess, it has the
piety of friendship and affection; and if lt has
the frivolity of festivity, lt has the truthful?
ness of enthusiasm, the Innocence of mirth.
AU the gentler, all the belter Impulses of
nature are In the ascendant at this festive
period, and with all Its excess there are

Its joyous days than they are at any other

BLOODY ROW IN GRANITETILLB.
One Wh Ito Ulan KU led, and Three Ne
groes Wounded. .
A fight ocourred in Orangeville last Sunday,
between EI number of whites and negroes, in
which Clementine Gullodge, a white man, was
shot and Instantly killed, and three negroes
were wounded. Dr. J innings, a white man,
who waa on his horse near the scene at the
lime, but who was not concerned In the di fa?
culty, reel ved two st ota through his coat,
but fortunately neilin r ball Inflicted any
wound upon his person. His horse waa killed
under bien by another shot. About twenty
five Bhota were fired altogether. Tne negroes
concerned in the a Sa r made their esoape.
The dlfflcily had tts origin In au event which
occurred Dome time ago. It seems that about
two- weeta aluce a tarty of young men
went to tue shop ot a colored ahoemaker In
Q rani ie vi ile, and spoke to bim about
a pair of boola he was making for one
them. Tlie negro said that they twere Dot
finished, One ol the party then ploked up an
old boot, and tn a playful manner struck the
negro two or three tinana over the shoulders
with lt. The old negro took no-offence at the
act, but others of his color who saw lt finally
persuaded him to take out a warrant against
the youog; men. The case had not been set?
tled up to Sunday, and considerable ill-feel
lne bad grown up between the young men
and the negroes and white Radicals, who had
persuaded the shoemaker to lake out the
warrant. Sunday the same party ot young
men were in Woolly Town, a suburb ol Gran?
tville, when the negroes commenced firing
upon them. The young men returned the
fire, and the fight lasted for several minutes,
with the result above stated. It ls said that
Qulledge, who was killed, bad nothing to do
with the c ld cully.

THE GREAT CHESTER FIRE.
A DETAILED ACCOUNT OF THE CON?
The Origin of the Fire a Mystery-The
Individual Lone*, ?nd How Far they
were Covered by Imucanc c.
An extra from toe Beporter office gives the
following particulars ol a great flre.whlch oc?
curred In that town on Sunday :
Cheater has been called upon again to add
her name to the long catalogue of placea laid
waete by Are. Black and smoking ruins mark
to-day the spots that on yesterday were busy
with the hum o? enterprise and trade The
fire was discovered by Mr. Henry Letaon, and
the alarm given a little after four o'clock this
i morning. It was at the rear eud ot the store
ot Mr. Plnkston Nail, and had made too
much progress to be successfully resisted at
the lime the discovery was made. The build?
ing being a very old wooden one, was en?
veloped lo flames in a few moments, and
the fire reaching some half a dozen kegs of
powder that were la the store, aa explosion
took place, which rent ihe house asunder
and scattered the burning brands on all the
buildings around. To the east of Mr. Nail's
store, and separated from ll by an alley-way
often feet In width, stood tue store of Messrs
I. L. Gunhouse & Go. This was also a very
old building, and lt caught and burned so rap?
idly as to lead many who were early on the
ground Into the error that the Ure originated
therein. Next on the east was "the old tin
shop," owned by Mr. J. J. McLure and Cap?
tain J. L. Agurs Jointly, and occupied by
MessrB. J. E. Curtis A Co. This was licked up
by the flames in a lew minutes, and the large
brick building adjoining it on tile east, owned
by Captain J. Lb Apure, and occupied by
Messrs. Wylie, Boddy ? Agura, stood next in
the path of the devourer. On account
of Its cloBe proximity lo the tin ahop, and the
fact of lt being covered with Bblngles, all Idea
of attempting to save lt was abandoned, and
the efforts of the firemen were directed to the
protection of the house ot Mr. J. L. Chambers,
the bank and the building occupied by Mr. E.
J. West and Mrs. PasBallalgoe. In these efforts
they were successful, and the further progress
of the fire ID this direction was stayed. Im?
mediately adjoining the store of Mr. Nail on
the west was a email wooden house owned by
Mr. John McCauthren, and occupied by him
as a confectionery atore. It and all Its con?
tents were soon consumed. Adjoining ibis
building stood the large house on the corner
belonging to the estate ot Major John Ken?
nedy. Tofs was occupied by the family of the
deceased as a residence, and by Mr. J.
W. Bothroofc as a dry goods store,
Messrs. Bourke A- Tinsley as a bakeshop,
and Mr. S. 0. Kaufman as a dry goods
store. Across tba street from this building
stands the large and elegant Iron front hotel
recently completed by Messrs. Smith & Mel?
ton. The doors and windows of this house
were badly scorched and blistered, and (ts de?
struction prevented only by the untiring ex?
ertion of the Stonewall Company. On the op?
posite side o? the cross street from the Ken?
nedy b'.!'dlng stands a very large wooden
house, o,..iad by Mr. E. M. Shannon, and oc?
cupied by Mr. D. A. Brimeras a hotel and Mr.
G. A. Drennan as a family grocery store. To
save this building, and thereby prevent the
destruction of a large portion of the town,
called out the skill and exertion of the fire de?
partment, and of the vast crowd collected at
the fire. The Champion Hook and Ladder
Company covered the roof, and worked with
unflagging zeal, while the Stonewall played
away on the aide and end of the building.
Their Joint labors were crowned with success,
and the march of the destroyer In a westerly
direction was thus stayed at the croas street.
Tte origin of the fire ls not and most proba?
bly will never be known. The hour In the
morning, however, ut which lt occurred, to?
gether with the fact that the torch had been
applied to Mr. Nail's store twice previous to
the fire In the last two yearn, would point with
almost certainty to tbe bund ot'tbwlnooodtary
as the cause of the disaster. Though the blow
la a very serious one to some of the sufferers,
and ls a calamity to the town, lt Is a great re?
lief to know that the major part of the lose
falls upon solvent Insurance compaules. The
building belonging to the estate of Major Jbbn
Kennedy waa Insured for $2500 In the Georgia
Home. The family lost furniture, clothing,
dec. to the probable value ol $2600, uninsured.
S. C. Kaufman Insured for $1000 In the Lon?

tion of his stock saved. Tinsley & Bourke
saved their stock. E. M. Shannon not In?

Drennan Insured for $500 In the Georgia

insured for $1000 In Georgia Home; loss by re?

$1200; no Insurance. John McCauthren, loss
$1000; DO Insurance. Plnkston Nail, loss $4000;
no insurance. Mrs. Louisa Melton, loss $600;
no Insurance. I. L. Gunhouse & Go., loss
about $30,000; Insured for $17,500, as follows:
$12.000, In the London, Liverpool and Globe,
$3U00 in the Hartford, ot Connecticut, and
$2600 In tbe Georgia Home. J. J. McClure
and J. L. Agurs, bouse burned; no Insurance.
J. E. Curds & Co, loss $6000; Insured
for $2600 in the Georgia Home. Wylie,
Boddy ? Agurs, IOBS $30,000; Insured for $26,
000 In the London, Liverpool and Globe.
Captain J. L. Agurs'a house waa insured for
SSOOO in the Germania, of New Tork; $10,000

for $1000 In the Georgia Home; considerable
loss from removal and water. B. McElroy,
loss $170 In cash and the custom work in hie

saved. Archibald Hogg loat all the contents
of his tailor shop; value not ascertained. Both
of these last named parllea occupied rooms In
tba Becood story ot Agurs'a building. Other
loases were Incurred by parties removing
their gooda and furniture from buildings sup?
posed to be In danger, but we have no means
of arriving at any lust estimate o? their
This ls the third destructive fire that has
swept over the hill In three years, and now
only four of the old landmarks of the business
portion of TJneater are left standing-the .
storehouse formerly occupied by McLure A
Harris, the residence of James Graham, the
Shannon house, many years ago the property
of George Kennedy, and the house on the
corner, occupied by B. M. Cross. These are
the only buildings left out of the many tbat
crowned the hill twenty years ago. Disaster
In the past has only served to call forth all the
latent energy of our business men, and nerve
them for a sterner struggle with tbe flokle
goddess. So lt will be again. Before many
months pass away, the altea now marked by
smouldering embers will be occupied by large
and costly warehouses.
While all classes, colors and professions
vied with each other In their endeavors to
save property and stop the progress of the
flames, we feel that we are doing no more
than Justice In noting especially the faithful
services of the garrison at this post. Officers
and men were promptly on the ground, and
wherever work waa needed, whether on the
house-top, in the stores or at the brakes, there
they were to be seen working with a hearty
good-will, and dolug all that men could io.
They have earned and they receive without
stint the gratitude of the whole community.
