The proceedings of the last day of the Gen?

Blmiiar tb the proceedings of the: last days of
former sessions and of all last days of such assem
' biles as reconstructed Sooth Carolina has been
blessed wi til. An Inevitable sprit of al m leu
restlessness seems to t^e possession of the mern-1

afforded, by tte documenta accumulated during
the session, or solace themselves by sipplBg Bur
reptiaotta compounds; which they hare thought?
fully co'ncealed about their .persons. AU rules of
order and most of tue reflations or civilization
are relaxed; tho members are far mote;intent
upon the prospective cashing or their pay certlfl
cates that? th e salvation of ; the country ; the pre
aiding,?peer repeats hts cease"ere formula of par?
liamentary ungo, while the members shout at
random ''aye" oe "no"aa the flt may take them,
and thus the business of the -day transacts1 itself
natu Anally the wi- ned for hour of adjournment
comet, and the members, wi n one lmpU'se, strike
a beeline for-thedoors ortho treasury. U
The actual events or the day .comprised only
the final passage aod ratifica ' lon of five acts and
re solutions as enomerated below; and the futile
joint assembly for th o' election of a jud ge for tne
Kightn circuit. Both houses had agreed last
Wednesday to meet, to-day In J ol utas rembly for
the purpose of this election, but' at the last mo?
ment the House had changed lu mind, rescinded
Its action,' and asked the con cur renee or the other
branch in the rescission. The proposition to re?
scind, however, waa only received Io the >enate
a few minutes before the hour fixed ror the elec?
tion, and aa there were a'few of the senators
who desired the election? to take place to-day,
they managed to get the flocr and rp':, against
time until the nour of one arrived, wot ? i ?e Sen?
at-, according io lt* resolution or Wv 'reBday,
proceeded to the halt, of the House io form tbo
joint assembly. Here, however, the bo ly had no
sooner been called TO order than sena- or w h lt te
more moved til at lt be dissolved, and the election
pos poned no til after the holidays. Be urged this
motion upon the ground that snfflclent time had
not been allowed for the members to makeup
their minds-as to whom thor should vote for, and
thitin^he meantime a Judge could be assigned
, by the-scpreme Cen rt to bold the January term
L at Greenville, and after thelnevltjble speeches-&y
m a few of the notaest members or bnth hooBes and
1 the consumption or about an hour thereby, the
? motion waa carried, and the Senate returned to

[ First; tho general tai levy; entitled "in act
aat?oriBlog ana dlreciln j the- comptroller-gene
ral and county commissioners to levy certain
taxes." This act tn the shape In which lt Anally
passed, requires a levy o," three mills on the dol?
lar on all the taxable property or the State ror
State purposes for the ' fiscal ?ear commencing
November 1, 1873; two mills for the support or
publlo schools for tho same year; three mirror

Second, the act to make appropriation ror one
third of the salary and mileage or the members
of the General Assembly, and salaries of the
aobordlate offlcers and' employee1. This act ap?
propri?tes the sum of $75,000, and authorizes the
Immediate pay ment to each member i-f one-third
of his annual salary, or $2O0, and the payment
of the employees ortho Assembly from me be?
ginning or the session to and Including the holi?
day recess. This, aa-might be expected waa a
measure of particular interest to every member
of tte Assembly, which may account for its
prompt passage while other measures of far
greater publlo importan ce have been allowed to
slumber la the committee rooms. Under its pro?
visions all the members and employees were
promptly paid this afternoon at the carolina
National Bank; and without a cent or discount,
a circumstance which is said to be without par?
allel In south Carolina ?ince reconstruction.

seventy-five thousand donara to pay tbe thirty?
nine newspapers which were authorized ti aa ver?

General Assembly daring the same sessions.
.Fifth, the bin to repeal tbe general license law,
which -sift*es a complete and sweeping rtueal of
the State license fees imposed at the last scission j
of the L?gislature, the repeal to take effect on

A DASTARDLY OUTRAGE.
The Kew. Dr. Buist Assaulted by a
The Rev. E. T. Buist, D. D., of Greenville,
was attacked by a foot-pad on Saturday week,
but Ls, we are glad to say, rapl"ly recovering
from the injuries he received. The Mountaineer
gives the follow 1 og account of the outrage :
We regret to learn that on last Saturday night,
just after dark, aa Rev. E. T. Buist, D. D., was re?
turning to hm residence, which ls but a sbort
distance beyond tbe city limits, be was struck
down by a blow on the back of his head, and re?
mained insensible ror Borne time. The reason roi
this dastardly attack bas a mystery connected
with lt that cannot be solved. Be waa not
roboed, nor ia there any ground ror believing that
he had an enemy tbat would desire to injure
bun- lt may, perhaps, be so that the intention
of the party who committed this atrocious deed
was robbery, and that the doctor, in receiving
the blow, ottered a cry that caused the villain to
See before accomplishing his purpose, rearing
that assistance would BOOB be at band. We arc
glad u> be able to ?tate that the dootor received
no very severe injury, though he was bruised by
the blow and also by the consequent fall" lt wat
Sipe rm tr escape from death, however, as thc
blow seemed to have beeii well aimed, and vat
dealt with anfflolent force co out through the rim

AFFAIRS IN COLLETON.
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
WALT SEBORO', 8. C., December 18.
The freeze on the night of the 10th Instant
did considerable dam ape to the rr ult and orna.,
mental treea.of this p ace, aa well as to the forest
trees in the aqrronnding country, and so mnch :
was this the case In th" uprooting and breaking
down of the limbs of the latter that the highways ;
leading to and from the town for several days
Wera la a measure obstructed, and for the time
almost Impassable. Today we have lt cloudy ?
md warm. Notwithstanding the inclemency of j
Uti * weather last week the trade in town was j
lively, aa might have been seen apon the streets |
every conceivable description of vehicle aa means
of conveying "produce" to market. The ' epi?
zootic baa made na appearance amongst us, but :
marked as y et with no particular damaging t fleet
upon our stock.. It la oi a mtld type, and yields j
readily to rest and treatment.
I noticed somo evidences of Improvement in
the business part of, the town. The store of our ?
enterprising yoting merchant, w. fl. Belliogtr, '
Esq., recently repaired, denotes Improvement In
trade, and ls characteristic of the we l-kno wn en?
ergy of Mr. Bellinger. There is quite a stir here in
anticipation vt a tournament, which ls advertised
for the 2eth instant. A gay t me ls expected. It
will, no doubt, be a great success under the maa
agement of the courtly and urbane gentlemen,
the Messrs. J. M. WUliams and L. B. O'Bry an, who
wUt leave nothing undone to ' make the occasion
one of peculiar Interest and attraction. 1 under?
stand that these gentlemen, who comprise the
committee or arrangements, have advertteed for
competitors among the knightly lovtrsof this
manly and truly chivalrous sport from abroad.
Handsome and o istly prizes will be awarded.
Extensive arrangements have been made for a j

After the prizes, had been distributed the bishop
made a short address, expressing the pleuure
aad satisfaction he fit In seeing so many children
gathered together in so good a cause, and the
bopethat the number of children attached to the
associa1 loa would grow still larger in the future.
Be also exhorted alt present who were parents
or guardians of children to send the little ones to
the Snnday schools.
When the bishop bad concluded the secretary
of the association produced a handsome silver
service, consisting or a salver, a pitcher, and two
goblets, a present from the teachers, to the super?
intendent, Mr. Sweegan. The goblets were lined
with gold and the whole servies was elaborately
ornamented. The salver was engraved '*E. F.
Sweeg.tn, from the Cathedral Snnday School As?
sociation." The other pieces bore the simple
Initials "E. F. 3."
Th? service was presented by Mr. F. J. McQarey
in a few words expressive of the high esteem and
regard entertained by the teachers or the school
for their superintendent, and reciting his zealous
and untiring exertlona during the past three
years in promoting the Interests of the associa?
Mr. Sweegan responded in a brief and feeling
speech, in which he tendered his sincero thinks
for the unexpected demonstration of their confi?
dence and kindness, and offered the assurance
that lt would long bo remembered as among the
happiest days or his life, and the wish that the
association might increase and prosper In its
great work, that each coming year might witness
an increased attendance of both teachers and
pupils, and that the blessing of the Almighty
might attend all their labors.
The assemblage was then dismissed.
