THE MAYORALTY-THE MANDAMUS QUASHED j
-DECISION OF JUDO'S CARPENTER.-In the
State Court, yesterday, Hon. R. B. Carp* i
terread his opinion in the case of the Stute
ex rel. Gilbert Pillsbury et al., rs. the Acting
Mayor and Aldermen of tho city of Charles- !
ton. By the opinion, his Honor sustains
the position taken by thc counsel for the j
respondents, namely, that Mandamus will
not lie against an officer de facto to compel
him to surrender his office, and that the
proper remedy would be by Quo Warranta.
Some excitement was created in the ranks
of the cosmopolitan louugers about the
Court House, when tho nows reached them,
but no serious demonstration that we could
learn of, to^lr place. Judge Carpenter has
ordered thc Mandamus to be quashed, and
to-day the argument on the Quo Warranta
will take place, which will involve the ques?
tion as to the constitutionality of the Vali?
dating Act.- Charleston Courier, 2bth.
NORTHERNERS COMINO SOUTH.-The Au?
gusta Chronicle and Sentinel says:
. "On the steamer Charleston, which left
New York Thursday for tho city of Charles?
ton, wc learn by telegraph, was a largo
number of Northern people coming to seek
homes in Georgia, South Carolina and Flo?
rida. Let them, and just as many more as
will come. For Georgia, we tender them a
cordial welcome, and feel assured that if
I they come to this State they will have no
cause to repent thoir choice. In any sec?
tion that they may choose to locate, whether
they come as emigrants to labor, oras inva?
lids in search of health, they will find an
abundance of fiuo land at fabulously low
prices, and be received with that kindness ,
and hospitality for which thc Empire State
of the South has been so long noted."
To which we respond yea and umen.
FASTIN MASSACHUSETTS.-The Governor
of Massachusetts has ordered a fast. Well
maybe do so. The united delegation in
Congress from that State have pursued their
fellow-citizens of the South with punish?
ments and disabilities which have seriously
impaired those resources which have done
so much in times past for the wealth of
Massachusetts. Her shippers are groaning
and her interests suffering, and she may
well clothe herself iu sack-cloth and ashes.

C^IASH ASSETS JANUARY 1, 18G0, $1,171,000.
J INCORPORATED 1864
Has been in operation but four years, during
which time it hus assured a large" amount than
any Company in tho United States, during a cor?
responding period of existence. Ono of tho chief
causes of its organization, was tho forfeiture by
several Northern Companies of tho policies of
Southerners, during the war. Thc leading officers
of this Company protested against thia injustice,
and on its consummation, withdrew and orga?
nized tho "GLOBE MUTUAL," on principles moro
liberal and just than those yet adopted by any
other Insurance Company, lu the event of death
In battle or m a duel, tim equitable vain?' of the
policy will be retui ned to tho heirs. ALL other
Companies forfait it. In ease of suicide, tho
FULL Policy is paid. No restriction on travel.
This Company has, in its guarantee fund of
$500,000, an element of strength possessed by no
other Company. It offers tho entirely new feature
of Probability Endowment, which ,;?VCH the
largost possiblo sum lor thc premium paid. No
other Company posse-sea this feature. Insures
children of any age. In the moderation of its
premium rates, in the variety of its tables, in its
dividends and in tho security offered insurers, it
invites comparison with any other Company.

fin HE Commissioner of Agriculture, in his report
JL for the year 1805, speaks aa follows:
' Tlit i " can be no doubt of the general adulte?
ration of all malt liquors. In England and other
countries, where heavy penalties are imposed, and
an increasing vigilance practiced to detect and
punish euch frauds, by a system of inspection of
all malt liquors manufactured beforo exposed to
sale, tho practico is very common. How much
more in this country, where there are no laws on
the subject, and no officer tocarefully analyze the
products of tho brewery? Some years ago, Pro
fceaor Mapca, of Now York, analyzed tho beor
from a dozen different breweries, and all were
found adulterated with noxious substances. It is
said that the salo of drugs to brewers, is a profit?
able part of thc trade. This is porfectly infamous.
Cocculus indicus, (fish-berry,) nux v?mica, (dog
button, from which strychnine is obtained,) are
some of the delectable substances found in beert
These are potent poisons, and the brewer found
using them should be drowned at once in one of
his own vats. Tho British Parliament passed a
law to prevent this nefarious business. The fol?
lowing is an extract: 'No druggist, vendor of or
dealer in drugs, or chemist, or any other person,
shall sell or deliver to any licensed brewer, dealer
in or retailer of beor, knowing them to bo such,
or shall sell or deliver to any person on account
of, or in trust for, any auch brewer, dealer, or re?
tailer, any liquor called by the name of or sold for
coloring, from whatev-. material the same may
he made; or anv material or preparation other
than unground Brown malt, for the darkening the
color ot worts or beer, or any molasses, vitriol,
honey, quassia, cocculus indicus, grains of para?
dise, Guinea pepper, or opium, or any extract or
preparation of molasses, or any article or prepa?
ration to he nsed in worts or beer for or as a sub?
stitute for malt or bops; and if any druggist shall
offend in any of these particulars, such prepara?
tion, Ac, shall be forfeited, and may be seized by
any officer of excise, and the person so offending
shall forfeit jive hundred pounds.'
"Dndor this law, very many druggists and brew?
ers were brought to grief, and yet tho practice
continues. Unless tho American publio are ready
to admit tho immaculate purity and innocence of
American brewers, they must'be content, while
drinking their beer, to cherish the belief that they
are at the same timo guzzling some narcotic poi?
son or damaging medicine. In view of tho unpre?
cedented growth of tho barley crop; of the great
increase of the number of maltsters and brewers;
of the vast unknown quantities of beor that aro
druuk in every city and almost every town on the
continent; it is the dictate of sound wisdom, that
thc attention of legislators should be called to
the snbject of the adulteration of our malt liquors,
and severe penalties should be inflicted as a pre?
P. 8.-Judge for yourself! My Beor is pure.
