CHARLESTON, SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 15, 1873.
EIGHT DOLLARS A YEAR.
OUR PUBLIC LIBRARIES.
PROPOSED UNION OF TELE CHARLES?
TOS AND APPRENTICES' LIBRARIES.
A Sketch of the Two Institutions-The
Advantage! of Consolidation.
The recent revival ot tue Apprentices' Li?
brary Association, and the movement now on
foot (or the partial amalgamation of that asso?
ciation with the Charleston Library Society,
promise to result, at no distant day, In largely
extending the benefits of the latter institution
by adding materially to Hs already extensive
collection of volumes, and bj making them
available to a very larg? class In the commu?
nity who are now practically debarred from
access to them.
To understand the relative positions of
these institutions and the nature of the pro?
posed union, lt will be necessary to sketch
very briefly the history of each, commencing
with the Charleston Library Society. This ls
a very old institution, having been organized
In 1749, and chartered by the Crown In 1754,
and lt now bas a library of some fifteen thous?
and volumes. These embrace every depart?
ment o? literature, and Include some works of
extreme rarity and value; but the collection
. bas suffered In the course of Its long existence
some extremo vicissitudes, and Its present as?
sortment of books ls hardly such as to make lt
available as a popular library. During tbe
Revolution lt was almost wholly destroyed by
Are, and during the late civil war it was rob?
bed of thousands of volumes, Including almost
the whole of Its lighter literature, such as
works of romance and adventure. It was re?
opened In 1866, and has had a successful exis?
tence ever since, with gradual accessions to
Its collection of bocks, and bas now a mem?
bership of about eighty, with the annual fees
fixed at six dollars each. The society owns
the large building at tbe comer of Broad
and Church streets, the lower floor of
which ls rented out as offices, while
the upper floor affords ample and convenient
accommodations for the library. The main
room on this floor, which runs across the
whole front of the building, contains the prin?
cipal portion of the library, which Is arranged
In convenient shelves on three sides ol the
room and In the following order: Theology,
belles lettres, classic), poetry and drama, his?
tory, biography, travels and romance. A
smaller room on the east side of the building
Is devoted to works on the physical sciences,
and a corresponding room on the west con?
tains a large and valuable collection ot bound
reviews, pamphlets and newspaper flies.
These rooms are kept open lor the use o?
members from 10 A. M. to 3 P. M., under the
management of the efficient librarian of tbe
society, Mr. Arthur Mazyck. The other offi?
cers of tbe socle.i y are the Bon. J. B. Grim
ball, president; Dr. Thos. T. Prioleau, vice
president; T. Alexander Broughton, Esq.,
treasurer, and General James Simons, solicitor,
and they are assisted In tbe direction of affairs
by committees on books, accounts and build?
ings, which are fined annually by election
among the members.
The Apprentices' Library Association was
organized In 1824 for the benefit of apprenti?
ces, minors and others who might be disposed
to pay a small annual lee and enjoy its advan?
tages. In 1861 lt owned a convenient build?
ing on Meeting street,' near Horlbeck's ailey,
and a large and well selected collection of
books. In that year, however, its building
and library were totally destroyed by the great
conflagration which swept over the city, and
the continuance of tbe war prevented Its re?
organization for some years. In April, 1870,
lt was determined to revive the association,
and an arrangement WBB made with the
Charleston Library Society by which the latter
society agreed to furnish room in its building
for the Apprentices' Library, and to open the
building on Saturday evenings for the accom?
modation ot the new association. This went
Into operation In October, 1870, and the
Apprentices' Association has, Bi nee that
time, been in successful existence, and
has gradually, purchased about eight
hundred books. It bas only been within
the past two months, however, that any
especial Interest has been manifested In this
association, and the membership bas increased
during that period from lesB than fifty to
about two hundred, the annual fees being two
dollars and a halt for each member. At tho
last session of tbe Legislature an act was
passed to revive and extend the charter ol
the association under the new name of the
Apprentices' and Minors' Library Association*
and lt bas been reorganized under that char?
ter, with the Hon. w. D. Porter as president,
B. F. Evans, Esq., as vice-president, and a
board of trustees composed of General W. G.
DeSaussure, Rev. J. Johnson, Dr. F. Peyre
Porcher, and Messrs. Wm. Thayer, D. G.
Wayne, Thos. Dotterer, C. F. Panknln, J. H.
Stelnmeyer, S. S. Solomons, E. M. Troth and
F. W. Dawson.
The proposition to make a partial amalga?
mation of these two societies has been agita?
ted for some time, and favorable preliminary
action has been taken by each. The advan?
tages that would be detlved are obvious. The
number ol volumes would be largely increas?
ed by the contrlbutionsthat tbe popular young
association would be enabled to make to the
common stock, and the klod of books that
they would naturally select would be such as
the old library Is most deficient in, while at
tbe same time the members o? the younger
association would have the advantages of the
solid and valuable works now belonging to
tue*'Charleston Library. The Apprentices
Horary Association bas become extremely
popular since its reorganization, as ls attested
by the rapid Increase of its memtersbip within
the past two months, and this increased mem?
bership would prove a very useful addition to
the Charleston Library Society.
A committee was appointed a few weeks
ago by each society to form a joint committee
o? conference upon ibis subject, and ibis com?
mittee agreed that the proposed union was
expedient and desirable. At the last meeting
ol the Apprentices' Association, held on the
3d inst., the committee of that association re?
ported tbe following resolutions as the result
of their conference with tbe committee of ibo
Resolved, That in tbe opinion of the joint
commtltee a union of the societies for the pur?
pose ol establishing a more general library is
expedient, and the separate committees do so
recommend to their respective societies.
Resolved. Tbat this commtltee recommend
to their respective constituents that, in case
of their approval of the foregoing resolution,
a committee be appointed with mit power lo
arrange all the terms for amalgamation of the
These recommendations were unanimously
approved by the association, and the lollow
ing resolution was adopted :
Resolved, That a committee of five be ap?
pointed to confer wlih a slmi ar committee
irom the Charleston Library Society, io ar?
range the terms of an amalgamation ot the
two societies, and lhat they report the same to
a meeting ot this society, io be called by ibe
president, lor final action thereon.
The committee appointed lor this purpose
was Messsrs. Johnson, PankDln, Evans and
HolmeB, and the j resident was afterward
added to the committee upon the motion cf the
Rev. Mr. Johnson. It will thus be seen tbat
the Apprentices' and Minors' Library Associa?
tion has taken all the steps that are now in
its power toward the amalgamation, and lt
now awaits the action of the other society,
which action will probably be taken al the
ST. PATRICK'S DAT.
The Programme for the Day and the
Festivities in the Evening.
The preparations that have been making
during a month past for the celebration of the
day so dear to every honest Irish heart, and

of the community. The magnificence ol the
dinners hereiotore given by the Hibernian
Society, on St. Patrick's Day, have always
constituted a leading ieature ot IIB celebra?
tion, and the coming banquet will, at least,
equal, ll lt does not surpass, its predecessors
in splendor. The Irish Volunteer Club will
also celebrate the close of the day with an
elegant supper at the Market Hall; while the
St. Patrick's Benevolent 8oclety will cons??

THE LATE R. J. DATANT.
THE BEA CE ORT BAR PAYS A TRIBUTE
TO HIS MEMORY.
Remarks and Resolutions.
At a meeting ol the members of the Beau?
fort Bar, held on the 11th of February, 1873,
for Ihe purpose of paying a becoming tribute
to the memory of their recently deceased asso?
ciate, Mr. Richard J. Davant, on motion ol
Mr. W. F. Colcock, Mr. R. DeTreville was call?
ed to the chair, and Mr. C. J. C. Hulson re?
quested to act as secretary.
Mr. DeTreville explained the object of the
meeting in a few feeling and appropriate re?
marks, in which he alluded to his long ac?
quaintance with Mr. Davant, his great admira?
tion for his sterling integrily, his unswerving
rectitude, and his rigid adherence to the path
of duty under all circumstances, both in his
public and private Hie. Mr. DeTreville said
lt Mr. Davant had any fault, lt was that he
was too rigid In the discharge ol bis duties.
He further said that il was meet that the
bar, of which he was so long an able member,
should express their appreciation of his many
virtues, and should pass appropriate r?solu- j
HODS in token of their sorrow In his death,
and their heartfelt sympathy with his bereaved
Mr. W. F. Colcock then roBe and said:
Mr. Chairman- Richard J. Davant Is dead.
How strange, how sad, how Bolemu do these
words fall on our ears, and with what Icy
coldness do they touch our heans. There is a
feeling within us that almost prompts us to
exclaim, "Oh ! lt ls not, ii cannot be so ! Has
death indeed robbed IIB of our friend ? Will
we never again behold those lineaments
which are so freshly daguerreoiyped oa our
memories ? Will we never more hear that
voice, whose echoes have scarcely died away
within these wails * Is thal form which but a
little while ago filled that seat now enfolded in
the cerements of the grave !" Alas ! alas 1
The answering voice of the sepulchre pro?
claims, "Yes. he is here ! Death is the con?
querer and the victory la mine !"
Awaking to the conviction of this sad reality
we accept with bleeding hearts the mournful
truth, and bowing with submission to the
decree which separates us ?rom our brother,
we seek for consolation in I he sweet retrospect
of his virtues sod his worth. He was, Indeed,
a good man, loving mercy, doing justice, and
walking humbly before God. To all of us his
dea'h ls a rieep affliction. To melt Is a su?
preme personal bereavement, lor we have
beer. Irait together for nearly half a century
in the closest ties ol brotherhood. In 1825 we
commenced the study of the law together in
the Village of Coosawhatchle, then the county
seat of justice. There the tree ol our Iriend
Bhlp was planted; there lt put fori t\ UB tender
leaves in our youth, blossomed In our man?
hood, and spread Hs verdant foliage over our
heads lu our old age. Few-may I not say
none-outside that saced circle which en?
shrined him, knew him better or loved him
more; and, in this sad hour, lt Is my pride and
pleasure to say that during all that lime not
an unkind word ever passed between us-not a
momentary shadow ever eclipsed the sunshine
of our love. I gave him all my heart, and
received his In return. Ol deep convictions,
earnest nature, and independent thought,
be examined, weighed and decided ^very
thing for himself. And it was an honor to be
numbered among his friends. An overshad?
owing sorrow husbelallen us, Mr. Chairman,
and I would say to each of our mourning
"Oh. faint not In a world like his,
And thou shall know ero long,
Know how sublime a thins; lt ls
To suffer and bo strong."
I beg leave to offer the following preamble
and resolutions :
Death bas again invaded our ranks, and an?
other toiler sleeps by the wayside 1 When
this great enemy sends bis heralds in advance,
and sickness, disease and lingering decay an?
nounce his approach, we are lu som? meas?
ure prepared lor his coming; bul when he
steps suddenly lalo our midst, without noie or
warning, and strikes dowu his victim, we
then realize that he Is Indeed ihe "Kinu of
Terrors." Such .has been his recent work
amongst us ! It seems but as yesterday lhai
our well-beloved lrleud was with us in tba
full enjoyment of all his faculties, and actively
engaged with his accustomed diligence In the
duties ot his profession, and to-day he ls num?
bered with the dead ! Wnat a oommentary
upon the uncertainty of Hie, ami what a loud
warning to UB all ! But If we, like him, ure
readv for the summons, "betrer is the duy of j
our death than the day of our birth."
Richard James Davant was boro on Hilton
Head, In the Dl-itrlct of Beaufort, on the 22d
June, 1805. He was educated at home among
the friends and companions ol bis boyhood
and his \outb. and in 1825 he entered thu law
office of the Isle Judge William D. Martin,
and was admitted to the bur in 1827. lu 1833,
at the early age of twenty-eight, he WUH
elected by the Legislature to me Important
and responsible office ol commissioner In
equity, which office he continued to hold fur
thirty-one consecutive years, wben lo 1864 he
declined a re-electior. In 1869 the Port Royal
Railroad was chartered/mod soon afier, though
then filling the office ot commissioner In
equity, Mr. Davant was solicited bv the friends
ot that enterprise to accept the office of pres?
ident, which he Ulled until 1866, when he
resigned. In 1864 he was appointed one
of the board of visitors of the Stale Mili?
tary Academy, and was elected by his an>o
ciates lo preside as their chairman. In 1865
the parish system of representation wus
abolished, and Instead of four senators from
Beaufort District only one was to be elected.
Mr. Davant was chosen without opposition lo
fill this honorable and responsible position,
and held it until the adoption ol the new con?
It will thus be seen by this brief sketch that
our lamented friend was marked Immediate?
ly as bti assumed tne obligations of manhood
as one whom his country and his friends
needed for duty. And well and faithfully did
he perform every task that was ever assigned
him. Of clear and vigorous intellect, sound
Judgment, unspotted Integrity and unweuried
industry, he accomplished all he undertook
with eminent success, und has left behind
him, as a public man, a name which will be
ever honored and cherished by his lellow
And now when we turn to ihe contem?
plation ot lils character and private life
we see there every thing lo love, arim're
and respect. United from early life
In those holy ties which alike bless and cons??
crale life, he enjoyed an unusual share of do?
mestic happiness and peace. Surrounded by
a large and devoted family, his home was the
seat ol love, order aud cultivated refinement.
Ol him it may be truly said that "hospitality
stood porter at his door.1 As a husband,
lather, friend and neighbor, he Illustrated,
with exemplary fidelity, every virtue which
can adoru these endearing relations ol life.
Confessing, from an early ug<\ his Saviour bo
fore men, he added lo all these the crowoing
graces ol the Christian character.
Li"t ot sill, lt was here iii our midst that
we, who are now assembled to lay our hum?
ble offerings on bis tomb, knew him best and
mouru him most. As a member ol our noble
profession he did everything to elevate its
character, preserve its purity, and maintain
its influence. Learned lu the law, liberal in
practice, true to his client, yet generous to
his adversary, "willi noble endB by noble
means pursued," he was, In the truest sense
of these words, a lawyer and a gentleman.
But he is gone; no more tliall we see that
calm, quiet, dignified lorm amongst us, or re?
ceive that cordial greeting wiro which he ever |
welcomed us lo his Dresence. Long, aye,
long will we mourn his" deaih and feel that a
void has been ?ea lu our circle which lt will
be hard to dil. Bul. we. are not left to mourn
without comfort. We have a well grounded
assurance ihatonr lamented friend has "ex
Changed the bankruptcy ofearh for the fient
age ot Heaven," and has entered into the rest
that remains for the people ot God. Let us
ever have before us his shining example, and
humbly pray that we may be reunited to him
In eternal fellowship when we shall stand Ira
ple tderi at the bar of "hoodwinked lnstice."
Resolved, That In the death of Richard J.
Davant the bar has lost a most valued asso?
ciate, the State aa eminently usetul citizen,
society one of its noblest members, and his
lamlly and friends one who was inexprepslbly
dear to them in all the relations of life.

vented me from doing so. It ls true that

ween him and the mover and seconder c
the preamble and resolutions adoptei
by the bar, but my acquainunce with him ha
been of long duration-over twenty yearB
and during a portion of that time of a ver
intimate character. I can truly say that dui
lng the whole of that period there was neve
the slightest discord between us. I knev
him before the evil days came upon us; I knev
him after our fortunes were shattered, am
no one could, or did, more iruly appr?ciait
all thu estimable qualities of his character ir
the various relations of Hie, bolh public am
private, than I did. All who knew him iii
well as we did must unite lu Baying that tx li
lile was unblemished, and that he performei
bis public duties wlih emlueni zeal and ability
and discharged his socal and domestic dui lei
with exemplary fidelity.
His uffecioin for lils family was striking,
and the chlet end and ulm of his Hie seemed
to be to make them hoppy. His home offeC'
Hons were a part of his nature. I remember
meeilng him In 1866, standing amidst
the heap ot ashes, all that remained tc
mark the spot were stood lhat happy
home, around which so many memories ol
those happy days, gonej.0 return no more,
are gathered; and upon my asking him what
he Intended to do, replied, "I want lo build a
home for my family upon Ihe foundations ol
their old home belore I die." Il was a labor
of love, nnd lovingly did healtend to lt. Early
and late he. pursued his ohjeci. Hardly a nail
was driven or a brick laid out under his super?
vision, and he lived long enough to accom
Dilsh Hie wish of Ihe eveolrg ol his Hie.
Hardly was 11 completed, when ne was called
to "Hie rest" which, we are taught, awaits
the righteous man. He lived a long life, sur?

Marriage of the Dachesse De Perslgny-.
The Inevitable IrTothcr-ln-Law -The
Servant Girls' Ball-A Carious Scene,
[Jorrespondenceof the London Times.]
PARIS, February 23.
It ls very difficult tor a careful observer to
follow the dally history of Paris since politics
have been introduced in the salon and
comedy into politics. Beyond the amusement
created by the proceedings of the "Commis?
sion des Trente" at Versailles, the traditional
French gayety has been little apparent, during
the past week. The assemblies in the Fau?
bourg 8t. Germain are the lateBt novelty here.
Since simple but aristocratic minds have
been led to believe that there was a chance of
the inslon being effected, lhere has been a
series of gatherings In trial Faubourg. But
these soirees intimes, held between court-yard
and gardens, with windows closed and cur?
ta! LU drawn, have a solemn aspect which
prevents me from Including them among the
guy fetes of the Parisian world.
the two events which have been really ex?
citing in those great mansions have been the
marriage of the Duchesse de Perslgny and the
ball, which is styled "des gtns de maison."
The marriage of the Duchesse de Perslgny ls
not a mere event In private life. Her family
has done everything in their power to call
public attention to this act, and it may,
therefore, be referred lo without indiscre?
tion. During the Duke's lifeilme the
Duchess went to Cairo tor a more genial
climate, and lhere she received intelligence
of the Illness, and subsequently ot ihe
death of the Duke. She quitted Cairo
with sell-denying haste, and reached Nice in
lime to convince heraell that the Duke was
really dead. The Duchess assumed the
deepest mourning and came to Paris to
soend ihe first period ol her widowhood.
Being free, she felt disposed to marry M. le
Mo vue, a young widower of good lamlly,
who occupied an honorable position at Cairo.
M. le Moyne was himself the first io dissuade
the Duchess from the chivalrous Idea she en?
tertained, and the newspapers, which have
been all along the confidant* of these two
hearts, duly publisned a very honorable letter
of M. le Moyne, In which he'pointed out to the
Duchess the error she would commit in wish?
ing to marry bim. But the Duchess persisted
in her resolution. M. le Moyne did not stand
alone in deprecating a marriage. The Duchess's
family opposed it most strongly, but their
opposition onlv confirmed her in her resolu?
tion. In the presence ot such unalterable at?
tachment M. le Moyne no longer hesitated,
and came to Paris, prepared to assent lo the
wishes ol the noble widow. But the family ol
the Duchess was less yielding than the lnture
bridegroom, and fiudlng that all efforts at
persuasion would be ineffectual, her mother
made an application to a court of law to prevent
her daughter from carrying out her Intention,
and also to confine ber In a maison de sante.
The cause ot the duchess was vigorously de?
fended, and the court rejected the application
ol the family. Armed with the Judicial de?
cision In their favor, the duchess and M. le
Moyne presented themselves before the com?
petent civil officer, who married them straight?
way. Three days later the religious marriage
was celebrated. Thin ceremony was perlorm
ed in the Chapelle de la Saint Vieree, which
ls situated beneath the church of St. Augustine.
No member of the family was present. Twenty
three persons were In the chapel, including
M. Charles Lafitte, witness for the bride, and
M. le Comte do Malaret, the uncle ol M. le
Moyne. The ceremony was simple, and the
usual collection was made by the son of the
Duchesse and Mdlle. le Moyne. The Comtesse
de Galllfet and several other ludies were
among those present.
While the ex Duchesse de Perslgny volun?
tarily abandoned her title lo become Mad?
ame le Moyne, transformations of a wholly
different character might have been wit?
nessed on Friday nlghl, ut the Salle Valenti?
no, wbere was held the annual ''Betides gens
de maison," or, In other words, of the ser?
vants In great establishments. It Is Hie cus?
tom at these balls that the servants should
be known by the names of their masters or
mistresses. Thus, any foreigner present who
had not been previously enlightened would
have brought away a singular Idea of Hie
French nobility. There are none but prin?
cesses, duchesses, marquises, countesses or
baronesses. The latter title ls no numerously
represented thal it ls rather contemptuously
looked down upon. The gentlemen are In
full dress und the ladles display the latest and
most elegant fashions. Upon entering the
room I waa very graciously saluted by a gen?
tleman of distinguished appearance, who is at?
tached to the household ot a diplomatic mar?
quis, and who, In donning his master's coat,
bad fjrgolten to remove the grand cross of a
loreign order. The Illusion was so complete
that I was aoont to offer my band, when he
explained, with all the simplicity of good
taste, that he was the valet de chambre who
was accustomed to introduce me when I
sailed on the marquis, his master. This mis?
adventure put me on my guard, and I watched
with natural curiosity the scene that was pre?
sented lo me. It was a very singular scene,
and one which showed how greata part dress
hus In conferring distinction. Upon finding
myself in presence of the gens de la maison,
[ was struck with their discreet behavior, and
a strange fidelity with which they copied the
all iludes of their masters. Toe val?
ets de chambre of diplomatists talked
with Rilli necks Bwuthed in high cra?
vat*, wilh Impasible countenances, scru?
tinizing looks, and Hps breathing mystery.
The servants of the Faubourg St. Germain
looked upon those of the Faubourg st. Honore
wilh good-humored impertinence, and the lat?
ter returned their disdain by sneering looks
and distant behavior. Oue felt in observing
these people that the fusion at any rate be?
tween the two fiiibourgs was still a subject of
difficulty. Ibis was more remarkable among
the ladles. The attendants upon Ihe vieille
noblesse were lew in number, and those
lew were attired In sllff, severe dresses,
with precious lacs, and loaded with dia?
monds, magnificent, if ill set.. The ladles
cf the Faubourg St. Honore had a wealthy
but bourgeois appearance, prelty dresses,
but somewhat deficient in taste; much
Jewelry, less splendid that those ol the
Faubourg St. Germain, bul mounted io more
modern taste. The ladles from the Boulevard
Haussmano were rather flighty in their ap?
pearance, their toilettes more d?collet?es,
their hair more extravagantly dressed, and
they trifled with their Cana in the most capti?
vating style. Truth compels me lo state that
the Boulevard Haiissmuna at traded the great?
est number of admirers.*" It must also be
added Ibal the Boulevard Banssmann accept?
ed with ready frankness all the compliments
offered, as also the glasses of mulled wine
which were presented. The Faubourg St.
Honore displayed a coquetry which seemed te
be a lillie affected, while Ihe Faubourg St.
(Jermain remained in llieir chairs.

The recent 9dvaneo in the prioe of ooal in
England gives interest to tho following statia
tici showing the estimated amount of the pro- '
duct or her coal fields which can be rendered
available: The royal commissioners who in?
vestigated ihe sui J ec t -a. few years ago reported
that, according to the evidence hid before
them, there was an aggregate quantity of 146,
480.000,000 tons of coal at a workable depth.
With a consumption of 115,000 000 tons per an- i
num. this bf nek would laat 1278 years; at the
ra?e of 146 000 000 tons. 1000 vea?; of 175.000,- J
000 tons 837 > ears; or 230,000,000-being double :
the present production-636 years. Tbe con?
clusion reached was thal the probable quantity
of coal contained in the ascertained coal fields
of the United Kingdom was 90 207 000 000 tons,
at a deptb not exceeding 4000 feet from the
surlace. Taking 115 000,000 tons aa the annual
consumption, it IB fair to presume that there
will be a gradual increase in the cost of the
article, although a reaction from the recent
advance is quite probable. It is said that an
additional expenso of twenty-five cents a ton
imposes upon Great Britain a burden of twen?
ty-seven and a half millions of dollars. This
shows the immense amount of coal used for
manufacturing and other purposes, and the en?
hancement of us value enters into the price of
every article of British manufacture.

A TOBY STRATEGEM.
HOW THE DEFEAT OF THE UNJTERSI
TY BILL WAS SECURED.
New Complication? In the English Cab?
inet Crisis-Gladstone Expected to Re?
nn me the Reins ot Government.
LONDON, March li.
There seems to have been an understanding
between the disaffected Liberals and the
Tory parly. The latter, to secare the greatest
amount of opposition to the University bill,
had given out that its defeat should not occa?
sion the accession of Tories to office. Borne
ofthe Conservative Je?ders certainly rallied
the hesitating Liberals to oppose the bill on
the assurance that a Tory ministry would be
impossible. Consequently, the leaders, such
ns Lords Carnarvon, Gutbone and Hardy,
and the Marquis of Salisbury resolutely refuse
to accept office. Tue Conservative party is
thus divided on the question of the safety or
expediency of venturing to govern with a
largely hostile Parliament on general princi?
ples, although harmonizing, incidentally, on
this particular measure, frhould this con?
tinue, the Conservatives win maintain their
present altitude. It ls more probable, how?
ever, that the Torlea will reconsider their
promise andj make an atlempt to govern,
counting on passing safely through ibe ses?
sion, by bringing up only necessary business
bills, and not venturing on any measure in?
vol vlng a difference of principle.
The morning Journals contain no informa?
tion of a more definite chara* l r In regard to
the Cabinet crisis than that. rwarded to the '.
United suites in last night's dispatches. The
general belief is that Glsdnooe will resume
toe premiership. Lord Darby ls expected to'
irrlve to-morrow. Disraeli wbile riding
through Westminster yesterday was enthusias?
tically cheered by the populace, owing to a
llssenslon among the Conservatives, fie will,
lowever. probably refuse the acceptance of
jfflce. The Queen bas sent for Earl Granville,
who ls now endeavoring io form a Cabinet.
Disraeli's visit to the Queen resulted in a grant
}f further time to bim. Both parties seem,
lira ld of appealing to the people.

which has excited such deep Interest in this
community and the entire Methodist Episco?
pal Church South for the past year or more,
was concluded at ibis morning's session
of the annual conference of the Methodist
Episcopal Church South. Shortly after th?
meeting of the conference this morning

BALTIMORE, March 14.
The committee to whom the ease of
the Rev. L. D. Huston was referred beg
leave to report that we have come to the
conclusion that the charge of Immorality ts
unanimously sustained, and the said L. D.
Huston has been expelled from the Methodist -
Episcopal Church Sonth.
Bishop Doggett asked if any representativo
of Dr. Huston appealed from the decision.
Dr. Register said that Dr. Russell, as counsel
for Dr. Huston, bsd Intimated his purpose to
appeal to the next General Conference of the
Methodist Episcopal Church South. All tba
papers In the case were then handed over to
the secretary or the conference, and Bishop
Doggett formerly declared that, "according
