Ttie Crown Prince's Army.
The army with which the Crown Prince
whipped McMahon at Woerth and was
threatening Paris for some days, says
tho New York Herald, is. only in small
part a Prussian army. It contains six
army corps, and of these, two corps only
are Prussians-all the others are South
German troops-the Bavarian, Badon
and Wurtemberg contingenta which these
"States furnish to, Prussia in accordance
-with'.& treaty bf alliance ,made immedi
at??y a?te^;th?jwar with Austria, in 1860.
These trp.?^.^jo ft?r inferior to the troops
of the! Prussian army. They aro neither
so well trained', nor1 so well armed, and
..?thus the force of Frederick William is a
Mesa efficient fighting force than the
armies commanded by his cousin and by
Steinmetz. It is probable that tho Prus?
sian part of this army was badly used up
in the fight with. McMahon. The Prus?
sian corps numbered .before a battle was
fought, 40,000 men, and McMahon claims
that he had himself only 35,000, and in
orushing this 35,000, the 40,000, with
the poorer troops behind, suffered very
heavily. This, perhaps, accounts for
the care with which the Prince has
moved in his subsequent operations.

EDITOR) FHONIX: Oar attoiit?ou bbs
been called to various adverso criticisms
tl?ut have for tho.last few days appeared
in our publio prints, upon tho cootraot
executed between tho city ol Columbia
and Mr. Samuel A. Pearce, Jr., both for
himself and as agent of Senator Sprague.
Wo bavo examined this contract and all
its provisions, and in order to correct the
mis-statements and misapprehensions
arising from them, wo propose to make
tho following review of this contract, as
well as tho incidents attendant upon and
preceding its execution.
1. That tho present water supply of
this oity is entirely insufficient, and that,
in consequence, we are left at the mercy
of any incendiary spirit that may run
rife through our midst, are facts so pa?
tent to the minds of all who have given
the subject anything like a thorough in?
vestigation, that it requires no argument
or oven assertion to establish them. But
as an incident in connection with this
view of the matter, we here submit tho
following action of the City Council in
1866, when ex-Mayor McKenzie was
Chairman of the Committee on Water

Tho Committoo appointed by tho City Coun?
cil to ascertain tho aggregate oxpenses per

arrived at their conclusions by tho exhibit of

J. FISH EIC,
T. S. NICKEKSON,
Tho report was received and adopted.
In connection with tho above report, Alder?
man McKenzie (submitted Hie following pre?
amble aud resolutions, which were received
Vhereas, by a recent Act of the General As?
sembly of tho Stato of South Carolina, the ca?
nal running through tho bounds of thu city

in contemplation for a number ot years to re?
sort to water power for forcing wator into the

at present in use-to effect this most desira?
ble end, and to aid and encourage any compa?
ny or capitalist who may engage in tue enter?
prise of improving thu saiil canal, and there?
by causing manufactories to Spring up ju our
city, encouraging iudustry ano adding great?
ly to our prosperity.

to take tho wator power of the canal (rom any
company or capitalist who may purchase thu
same under the Act o' the ?tate Legisla?
lies lived. That for tho purpose of supplying
the city willi wator, by these means, the 1
Mayor and Alder mon, in Council assembled, !
do agree to pay to such a canal company or j

(ju motion. Council adjourned.
J. S. McMAIION, City Clerk.
It will be seen from these proceedings
thnt not ouly did Mr. McKenzie suggest
the propriety of securing a change in
the mode of forcing water into tho dis?
tributing reservoir, but also the necessity
of furnishing means by which the river
could bo resorted to in au emergency, or
in case of n failuro of the springs, upou
which tho city depends, to furnish the
supply demanded. His report states in
most unqualified terms that the supply
furnished from theso springs was utterly
inadequate, even at that time. Have the
demands of tho city upon its water works
diminished since thou? Reference is
also made to report of ex-Mayor Mc?
Kenzie at Council meeting April 20,
1869, in which ho advises a chungo in tho i
modo of forcing water in tho distributing
reservoir, i lu says: "I often woudor at
the short-sightedness of our predecessors
in office in not going to the river forthat
motivo power that natnrd has so lavishly I
I spread for that very use, instead of put- ?
j ting up an expensive steam eugine liable j
?it any moment to get out of repair, and j
j costing tho city ii yearly outlay of be?
tween $1,000 and S?.OOU a year for wood
alone. That, some other mode of raising
water for distribution must at no very !
distant day be made, will bo apparent to
overy one us a lasting, durable and ceo- j
nomical work for tho benefit of the citi- j
zens at hugo."
Will tho requirements of tho city be j
less, as-it increases in population and in j
the number of its dwellings, manufacto?
ries and work-shops? And wo are j
among the largo number who believe
that tho city will iucreaso in population,
wealth and prosperity. Still further, it
will be noticed that Mr. McKenzie, in
bis report, May 7, 1866, suggested that
tho power required for tho Water Works
be obtained from tho very source from
which tho contract, now assailed, pro?
poses to furnish it, to wit: From the
canal. And on report of tho committee of
which ho was Chairman, tho City Coun?
cil mado a proposition moro favorablo
thau the contract which has just been
entered into, to any capitalist who would
open tho canal. But says ex-Mayor
McKenzie, now, "I never ono dreamed
of the city buying the cnuol, or to pay
for tho obange $820,000;" Wo do not
pretend to so* that tho ox-Mayor ever !
had au oh a dream, OT any: other to oar
knowledge ;!but we do allege, however?
?hat whim jracfe awake he did vote for,
and, with toe co-operation of his fellow?
members of tho City Council, in 1866,
did adopt" a proposition, which, had it
been acoepted by any capitalist, would
have involved the city, at the end of
twenty years, in expenditure of an
amount equal, at least, to ?320,000. Tho
proposition then made, as will be seen
by reference to the above quoted pro?
ceedings of Council, was to pay the
capitalist who would undertake tho en?
terprise 89,000 per year for ten years,
and $5,000 per year for fifty years there?
after. That our allegation is correct,
the following exhibit clearly demon?
$9,000 per vear, for ton veara,.$90,000
$5.000 " " " ". 50.000
Coat of labor to operate machinery,
?co., for twenty vears, at $2,000 per
Wear and toar of machinery, repaire,
oil and other contingent expenses,
at leat?t $2,000 per year, for twenty
Coat of new works, including a now
colluding reservoir, pumps, pipes,
for leading an additional supply of
spring wator into tho now reservoir,
and for connecting with tho pipes
now in use, wator-whecls and gear?
ing, a new building for machinery
and other appurtenances necessary
to force 1,500,000 gallons of water
daily into tho d is tribu t i ng reservoir. 30,000

would have incurred in building
thoae worke, ostimated at our legal
rato-seven per cent, per annum
on the amount of tho bonds that thc
cit? would havo to issuo to raise the

lar, tho market rates, to wit: 40, 153,
S3, for twenty years, would bo. 02,015
Making a total of. $312,015
The difference between that proposi?
tion and the present contract being but
$7;385, which would allow but S3G9 aud
a fraction, per yenr, to tho contractor,
for all his risk and respousibility in tho
erection, management and maintenance
of said works.
This statement wc believo to be a full
and complete answer to the charge made
that tho price stipulated in this contract
is exhorbitnnt. And just here it is well
to consider that at the end of the twenty
years tho entire new Water Works, "the
reservoirs, pumps, pipes, buildiugs, ma?
chinery and all and every other matter
or thing iu any way appertaining to tho
said Water Works, which shall have been j
built or furnished" by the coutractiug
party, shall revert to and vest as the
property of the same iu the city of Co?
lumbia, and shall be turned over iu good
order and repair.
In reference to the charge of secrecy
in the adoption of tho contract, we eau
ouly say, as is shown by ex-Mayor
McKenzie's card, that tho subject has
boeu agitated for a very long time; that
severnl reports on the subject have boon
made by the Committee on Water Works
to tho Council at different times; and,
still further, that this very contract was
reported und submitted to the Council at
least two weeks ago, and that, it was
amended aud modified in every particular
that members of Council suggested;
that, although it may not have been in
form, yet it has beeu in substance be?
fore this Council for more than live
weeks; and that lipon this matter the
proceedings of Council at every meeting
lu additiou hereto, we assert that the
city does not incur a single cent of in?
debtedness iu the fulfilment of its por?
tion of the contract.
It is also charged that the contract
leaves the city at the mercy of the con?
tractors, iu fixing the water rates, in
case of forfeiture of works. This is
Any one who reads the contract will
lind it is therein distinctly stated that
tho city shall lix the water rates, and
should the amount arising from those
rates exceed the compensation allowed
the contractor, that excess shall bu paid
over by him to thc city.
It is certain that with a proper and
"uniform" system of collection of water
rents, that they will amount to a sum
sufficient to pay the compensation speci?
fied in this contract; and that this con?
tract will in no way involve tho city in
any additional burthen of taxation; but,
on tho contrary, we sincerely believe
that us the city grows, tho water rents
will so iucroaso ns to not ouly pay the
compensation stipulated, but to yield a
large excess, which can bo appropriated
to the payment of other debts and lia?
bilities. Let the supply bo furnished,
and wo will guarantee the demand will
be sure to follow.
Considering all th eso things, wc do
not believo that the Council needs any
vindication. Their ucl iou carries with
it its own vindication. The contract is,
wo believe, a fair one for both parties.
Thus far wo havo taken a narrow view
of the subject, simply because of the
narrowness of tho strictures made
against the contract. Tho wider view,
is, that it secures the speedy opening
ami early completion of tho Canal.
Surely this is a matter in which, as citi?
zens of Columbia, we all have a para?
mount interest. To tho laboring mau
iu our midst it will give employment,
and the "thud of tho pick-axe will
soon bo heard" on the Columbia Canal;
to tho professional man, it opens a new
and larger field; to tho merchant and
capitalist, it promises increased opportu?
nities for profit aud investment.
This communication is written not for
tho purpose of entering into a newspaper
controversy, but simply to present to
the public a full and truthful representa?
tion of tho entire matter.

The occasion which brings 119 together
this evoniog, Mr. Presideut, is one of
deep solotnnity, of ournost feeling, of
heartfelt sorrow. Ono of our oldest,
most useful aud honored members has
passed away from tho sceuo of his
earthly toil, in the midst of his labors of
usefulness; and wo, his late fellows and
friends, are assembled to give expression
to the profouud grief wo feel at bis un?
timely decease, and to offer tho tribute of
our testimony to those virtues wuiob
gave complexion to his character, and
direction to tho currcutof his life.
For more than forty years Dr. Samuel
Fair was devoted to tho profession of
medicine-not only to its activo duties,
to the unceasing demands of which ho
was ever ready to respond-but be
evinced on all occasions a lively interest
in tho progress of medical science, which
displayed itself in active efforts for its
promotion. A long and intimate asso?
ciation with our lamented friend, first as
a pupil, and subsequently as a cotompo
rary practitioner of medicine, enables
mo to speak with confidence ol those
mental and moral qualities to which he
iu large measure owed bis successful
career us a physician. Quick of appre?
hension, of sound judgmeut, with an
observant eye and a wonderfully retentive
memory, his exteusivo observations of
disease had provided him with resources
upou which he could at all times safely
and calmly rely. Added to these quali?
ties ho possessed nu amiability unsur?
passed, and au activo und enlarged be?
nevolence which waa at all times obedient
to the calls of suffering humanity.
Io commemorating his worth ns a ci ti -

met thc manifold obligations ami duties
of bis position, with a faithful earnest?
ness of purposo which has left behind
him the record of a well-spent life, and

Though for several years prior to his
death be had been the subject of a grave
cardiac affection, which he knew full
well might, at auy time, terminate his
life, yet duriug the past few months, his
general health had becu unusually good,
and his spirits animated, so that thc
fatal event was both suddeu and unex?
pected. The summons came by night
aftor a day of toil-he lay down to rest,
with t he plans of busy lifo mapped out
beforo him. The morning came-"he
bad another morn than ours," aud rostotl
from his labors.
lu contemplating thc manner of his
decease, I am forcibly reminded of thc
apostrophe to life pronounced by au
aged poet, with the belief that in hii
own heart our friend responded to thi
sentiment it so touchingly conveys:
"T-ife we've been long together,
Through sunshine and through storm]
'Tis hard to part when friends arc dear,
Perhaps 'twill cost a si^h, a tear.
Then steal away, give bille wuruiug,
Choose thine own time,
?Say not good night,

Bid me good morning."
Dr. Darby then offered the fcllowiuj
preamble and resolutions:

At a meeting of Ward Club No. 1,

following resolutiou? were unanimously
Resolved, As citizens and tax-payers of
Ward 1 we denounce aud reprobate the
action of our representatives in tho City
Uouueil in agreeing to give Mr. Sprague's
agent the enormous sum of ?1G,U00 per
aunutu for twenty j-oars for supplying
tho city with water, beiug double the
amount now paid for the same.
Resolved, That tho increased amount
of taxation which will result from this
job, entered iuto by tho City Council
without, consulting the wishes or interests
of the tax-payers, must inevitably act
disastrously on the welfare of the city.
Resolved, That we are opposed to the
giving out of the contract of supplying
the city with water under such terms, at
a greatly increased cost, when the maxi?
mum amount of taxation authorized by
tho Legislature has already been reached.
Resolved, That we iuvitc the co-opera
tiou of tho people of our sister Wards
in concentrating tho opposition of the
entire city in opposition to the action of
said City Council, and that we promise
our determined co-operation in whatever
measures may be deemed necessary to
defeat this wasteful, unnecessary and ex?
travagant policy. JAMES DAVIS,
President Ward Club No. 1.
