COLUMBIA, 8. C.', December 19.
The Various disagreements which haye
sprung np between the two branches of the Gen-1
eral Assembly- opon cet iain questions of finance
and expenses, appear to be getting chronic, and
the formula of committees of conference, reports I
of disagreements, committees of free conf?re c*>, I
Aa, ls becoming a regular incident of each day's
proceedings. One or two of these disagreements
were disposed of today, however, as follows:
it wm oe remembered that when the General I
Assembly adopted the,House resolution for a J
three weeks' recess, the Senate tacked on au
amendment to -the effect thar. the attach es were
not to bo paid during that time, the noose re
fused to conaur, and the St nato refused tb re
tract. One committee of conference was appoint?
ed and decided that the Senate ought to retract,
bot the Senate Billi refused. A "committee or
free conference" was then appolHtrd, and this I
committee failed to agree at all, and BO reported
this morning. This exhausted the formula of ;
conferences, and nb agreement having been
effect ed thereby, the amendment was lost under 11
the operation of the fourth Joint rule of the Gen- I :
eral Assembly, which, arter prescribing the for-11
mole above described, says: "ir the committee ( :
of free conference fall to agree upon any plan of
seulement, or If their report be not concurred In
by both houses, the proposition to amend ia lost."
On thd question of the aa omit ot pay of the
two attorneys, two circuit solicitors and two
clerks, authorised to be employed by the at-1
torney general to draft bills, Ac, for the General
Assembly, there has also been a disagreement, I
which waa settled today by the Senate concurring I '
In the House proposition to give them the same
pay and mileage as ls now allowed to the mern
bera or the Assembly.
The general tax levy bill came back to the I -
House this morning, with the Senate amendment I,
providing for the auditing of deficiency claims
by & com mm oe or the Assembly, and the House <
refused to concur in the amendment, A message
to that effect being sent te tbe Senate, the Senate
sent backs message that it refused to recede from I ;
Its amendment. The House then, by a vote or loo I '
to 9, insisted upon Its refusal te concur, and ap-1.
polnteofa committee Of conference. The whole I
formula will therefore, have to be gone through I
wita to-morrow, but lt ls mo t probable that lt I,
will result, as. In the case of the attaches, In a I
disagreement, and that, therefore, the proposal I,
to establish an auditing board will fall.
A similar trouble exists tn regard to the bill to I <
make an appropriation for the Immediate pay-1,
ment of part ot the salaries or tbe members. AH I
passed by the Senate the bill appropriated I
?100,000 for the payment or hair the salaries, or I,
$800 to each member, and the Incidental expenses, i
but the Hi.use proposes to amend by appropria-1
ting $75,ooo for the payment of one-third or the I.
ea<anes, and by leaving out the incidental ex
penses, 'The Conservative members or the Senate I
saw through this little arrangement, which I ,
althongh proteasing to be a measute of re-tench
ment really appropriates more in proportion than I .
the original proposition, and yesterday refused I \
to concur la the amendment. The House today li
Insisted upon Its amendment, and the Senate In
slated open its refus*.; to concur, so another com-1 ,
ml .tee ot conference was appointed, wji icu will 11
doubtless report to-morrow morning, although ,
what me final result will be lt ls not so easy to I,
predict. I i
TBS CHARLESTON TRIAL JUSTICES. I I
Senator Gaillard, colored, of Charleston, to-1 '
day intrudaced a bill of considerable importance, I ?
especially to the small army of trial Ju- tices, and 11
the citizens generally of the City of charleston. I ?

THE COUNTY TREASURERS. ]
Another bill or considerable importance, which
seeks to make the office or county treasurer an
elective one, was introduced this morning by
Senator Hayna, colored of Aiken. Ii provides
that there shall be elected by the qualified voters I
or the several counties In the S'ate, at the next
general ?lectif n of S'ate and county officers, a
conni v treasurer for each county, who shall bold
his omeo for the term of - yeats, and shall
perform such duties as now are, or may herearter I
be required by law. The bill also provides that
the treasurers shall give bonds ror the taltarni I
discharge of their duties, the amount of the bonds
to be required la Charleston, and the other coun?
ties being left blank.

amend the " act for the better protection of hold?
ers of insurance policies," by making lt optional
with the Insurance companies whether they de?
posit United states or South Carolina honda with

, to amend the act so as to require insurance com?
panied to doable their deposits, ls tnought to te
tated. It ls sil.l upon the calendar of the House,
bat with sn unfavorable r- port by the Judiciary
committee, and lt ls probable that as soon as li U
reached lt will be summarily disposed of by s:rik- J
lng out us enacting clause.
The Joint resolution to make appropriation for
expenses of printing ordered by the General AS- j
sembiy during the regular sessions of 1870-'7land

[Correspondence of tne Baltimore Son.j
WASHINGTON, December 16.
For several sessions past the propriety cf

In thia direction. The amonnt collected by the
Internal tax OD cotton louted np something like
seventy millions of dollars. Tne tax was,

cases taken. It ls represented that the original
holders ef these rec ip ts s year or two ago be?
came disheartened at the prospecta of getting
their money back, and parted with them at pricer
ranging from Ave to twenty cents OD tue dollar.
There has been for some time pending in tne

seems to have any idea when the court will de

THE COTTON TRADE.
ASPECTS OF THE ENGLISH MARKET.
Tbc Eagerntsn to Return to the Uso of |
[From Smith, Edwards A Co.'a Monthly Cotton
Circular, dated Liverpool, Nov. 80, 1872]
The Manchester market has been fairly I
stoady during the past month, the production has
been disposed or without difficulty, and both spin
eera and manufacturers are kept well under con?
tract. At ihe aime time lt must be added that
many or the coniraces were m-de at low prices
under the impression ibat cotton would decltoe
a: d would be very unreraoneratlve ir the present
prices ruling ror the raw material were to be
maintained. The manufacture of Eastern cloth
continues to be the most unprofitable department
or ihe trade, and, as a na1 ural consequence,
there has been much overalz.ng or the gooda for
a long time past. This has culminated, as might
be expected, in great complaints ot mildew from
the Indian markets, aad the matter hus recently
been discussed at ihe Manchester Chamber or
Commerce, without however suggesting any prac?
tical remedy. This complaint or mildew ni way s re?
vives when cotioa la dear and trade bad. In this
ease lt lathe result or the rise In middling Or?
leans to uxd per lb. in the spring months or the
year, which was never responded to in cloth,
and manufacturers ha4 tho alternative or stop?
ping their looms or cheapening their goods by
loaoing them with size. Thny have adopted the
latter, i nd hence the complaints; but it is easier to
seethe evil than to devise a remedy. Were cot?
ton to rule at a moderate price, the dlfficuily
would be overcome, but wita every period of bad
trade we rear this will revive. The irade or Man?
chester appears now to boon a tolerably healthy
basis, al hough lt must be allowed there ls but
little profit to the producer. Were there a pros?
pect of cheap cotton next year the om look would
be good but if cotton ls dear, we fear lt will be j
difficult to establish a corresponding advance on
the manufacture J article.
The prospecta or our market are, as usual at
tbli sc ison, bound np very closely with i hose ol
tne American crop, and on that surdect tl ere bas
recently been a deliverance or the agricultural
bureau at Washington, which bas excited a good
deal or attention. Its pronouncement*) are oiten
&mt>Uuous, but this ls tbe most enigmatical we
remember, and people differ in the Interpretation
th-reof totho extent of 800,000 or 400,000 bales.
The figures given by the bureau are 3,4:u. t co bales,
hat lt adds of 4uo los., and whether thu ls gross
or net weight ls uncertain-we incline to be leve
lt to be gr osa weight, as cort?n ls sold gross in
america, and thin ls about the average weight
trhen tare ls included. But on thc other hand,
this estimate appears quite too small, Including
M lt does Southern consumption, leaving only
3,860,000 bales for "commercial crop;" beean-.e
tne column of average o mdlilon shows a great
Improvement on the october report, and, taken
along with the Increased acreage, points appa?
rently to a yield of 300,ooo bales large!. In e
?.ioose t.? an Inquiry sent to New York, we learn
that the construction there put upon the report ls
3,600,000 baie?, but that the general opinion ls in
favor of 8,600,000 to 8,760,000 i ales. We take ibis
to mean total growth, including Southern coa
sumption. From the South the accounts all
through the past mooth have been favorable, and
estimates have been steadily increasing, UH we
should tay that 8X to 8Ji millions represent the
current opinion. The weather has been very ra
vorable 1 r picking, and we anderstand that the
great balk of the crop ls secured, notwithstand?
ing the bureau affirms that on the 1st November
there were atm one million bales unpicked. We
have grave doubts, however, in accepting very
large estimates or this crop. There ls no doubt
that great destruction was done oy worms la Aa
gait and September, and In some or (be richest
districts the yield will be little better iban last
year. The crop ls by no means nnUormiy go id
as it was in 1870, and there is besides much
lesa growth going on than there was In the wm-'
ter or that year. We understand that the '
plant has ceased to grow over most of tie
country, and that picking ls nearly finished
already, whereas in li?70-7i lt went on till Febru?
ary or March In many places. We think the crop
will fall greatly short cf (hat extraordinary year,
and we have great doubts whether the entl<e
?;rowth of the country will reach three and three*
ourt is millions. We think three and a half to
tnree and three-fourths millions a sufficient esti?
mate as mattera stand at present, and of that,
1,200,000 bal s will probably be retained for
American consumption, North and Sooth, pro.
Tided prices do not run very hlsh. American spin?
ners are doing well, and rapidly increasing their
consumption, and will require a larger supply
this ye ir tban ever before. Last aeasm they
uook i,ioo,ooo bales, and tho one before' LI6T.000
bales. If the whole crop be takea at 8.700.000,
there would therefore remata only 0,600,000 bales
to Kurope, against 1.1)57.000 bald last year, and'
3184,000 bales the year before, or ao averace or
2.646.000 bales the last two years. Now the whole
of this cotton has been consumed in Europe at an
average price or about Otfd ror uplands, and lt
s- cms very doubtful if we caa do with lesa this
We have been struck with the eagerness which
splncers every where show to return to the use of
American cotton. We expected that the large
stock or East luella -retained in Europe this au?
tumn would have relieved the demand for Amer?
ican ror several month ), but we find a continued
reluctance to use East India, and a strong ne-ire
to return to American its soon as there ls a plen?
tiful snppiy. This ho'd ? good on the Contineut
as well as here, and lt l s proved by the extraor?
dinary share of the ero ? thar, ls being shipped to
thatqnarter. The shipments BO far are 300,000
bales to England, against MS.OOO bales last year,
and 210,000 bales to the Continent, against 80,
OOO bales last year, and we understand that there
are abont twice as many ships loading for the
Continent as for England at present. Thia ls a
very significant fact, arid lt proves that we sba 1
get a smaller share of the crop than we were
counting on. The average consumption of Amer?
ican cotton on the Con tinent the past two sea?
sons was about 876,000 ba:e-; and lt almost 00ka
as ir it would take one minion hales this season,
including ex oort for England, provided prices
remain moderate. Suppose lt takes 050,000
bales; In that c.se a crop or 8.700,000 bales
total growth) would only leave 1,660,000 bales
'or English consumption, or 30,000 bales per
week, which ls too ililli!. We therefore fear that
ne cannot count upon netting thia year's supply
it an average price of Dd for uplands, unless the
;iop turns out larger t ian an? estlm 'te at pres
'nt put forward, lt BC ems, on the other hand,
:lear that ir this crop oaly tums out 3>i millions
total growth) we will be greatly pinched, and a
lerioos rise may take place la~er on. Une point ls
'lear, the early suppllen to this country are going
o be small, and lt will oe a long time yet before
>nr stock lu replenished. That ol American must
teep very low for some months 1 et, and the ar?
rivals from all other c mntrles, except Egypf,
promise to be much less than last year for several
nootns to come. Fortunately the crop In v gypt
s arriving ai an extraordinary rate the receipts
ia Alexandria are neirry double those of last
rear, and as mach of the orop ls of white or
american seed cotton, spinners may relieve the
scarcity of American by taklog lt in substitution.
But from Brazil tho ateoemts are not so good;
;be crop is now expect 3d to be decidedly lesa than
ast year, and lt ls evident that the great con
mmpilon of Brazils, which has gone on for some
nonths past, must noir be fed, In part, by Ameri?
can cotton. The exports from india continue
miserably small. Tbe imount afloat ror this port
s only 41,000 bales, anil apparently veryiltne will
jc shipped to this country from Bombay till Feb?
ruary or March, for the new orop ls late, and
pery u tie old ojtton remains In the interior.
We conclude, therefore, that the statistical po?
litl?n of cotton will look stronger as tbe sea-on
idvancea, and lt wld need large receipts and llb
;ral estimates from Anerlca to keep speculation
from springing up. At the same time lt must be
idded that the speculative spirit is not active this
feason. the losses sust 1 .med in handling last year's
irops have made operators timid, and any unfa?
vorable reature, Buoh M a sudden Increase or re
:elpts, would cause weakness. The background
?r the market, however. Is strong, and we fear
that the prospect or supply is not what could be
leslrcd In tho Interest! of Lan ashlre.
