Municipal Correction'--I?BW Y?rl*~Co.
? lumbla. '
Oar readers are aware, we presume, of
the general character of tho: proceedings
in New York against the city plunderers
and swindlers. Municipal corruption
hud proceodod to such an extent that ut
last it was held by good.aitizens that the
evil must no longer b? e"nd?red. Men-.
law-abiding citizens of. Nejv York-went
so far os to talk of summary violence
upon the persons of their Tweeds, their
Sweeneys and their Connollys. Even
the great lawyer, Mr. E var te, throw put
the idea that, after exhausting legal re?
medies to meet tho case of plundering
officials, it would bein order to Eu Klux
them-for, said he, there is certainly a
limit to endurance. Tho fact of tho
matter ianthe common talk in New York
as to thieving publia officers shows that
the spirit .of Ku Klnxism is about as
strong in New York as it was in burning
Chicago, felt, to resume. Ono Mr.
Foley-a citizen of Now York-moved
in behalf of the tax-pnyors. ? Judge
Barnard was equal to thu emergency, und
the grand inquisition begun. The tax?
payers meet and a oommittea of seventy
is appointed to give direction to tho pro?
ceedings against the corrupt ring that
bad fastened apon the rich body of New
York. Finally, we find that tho case
against the defrauders of the oity tax?
payers reaches Gov. Hoffman, tho enor
getio'and upright chief .'magistrate of
Now. York- He pots tho ouse of -the citi?
zens in the.hands of the State Attorney
Genera!,' and' authorizes' him td employ
and bring to his aid eminent counsel.
He selects foar legal gentlemen-two
Democrats and two Republicana. These
gentlemen, we observe, havo established
their offioe in New York and gone to
work. The "Bureau of Afunicipal Cor?
rection" has been established, and Messrs.
Chafes O'Oonor, Wi -H.- Peckham,- W.
M.'JE var t and ax-Judge Em oit, constitute
the counsel for the people ia the coming
suit agaiust the alleged defrauders of the
city tax-payers. Thus the preparations
for calling the oity plunderers to account
are going bravely on. All we have to
aid, is to express tho hopo that the cause
of the plundered people may prevail;
Now we have a somewhat similar case
ou the tapis here. The case in New
York involves millions. Oar case in?
volves only thou san da. But New York
cm stand a loss of millions better than
Colombia a loss of thousands. What it
the oase hero? Simply this: 1. Tho il?
legal and secret issue of city bonds, and
the outrageous arrangement made bj
Alderman Wigg with.Dr. Neuglo. 2 Thc
alleged fraud and collusion in connec?
tion with the City Hall and the market
building, whereby it is thought that thc
city hns been dwindled out of ovei
?60,000. These matters were brought
oat, and an investigation demanded bj
this journal. First, we called upon th?
acting Mayor, Alderman Wu'luco. H<
was silent. Next, we called upon thc
Mayor and Council. They were silent
They bave absolutely done nothing
.. One would suppose that this body wouli
deem it dae to itself, if not to the pub
lie, to examine into alleged plundering
Bat they have kept silent. In tho mean
time, the Board of Trade appointed i
committee of investigation, to not in be
half of the tax-payers. This oommittei
now consists of Messrs. E. Hope, R. C
Shiver and John O. Seegers. Thes
gentlemen have, we learn, engaged a
counsel Messrs. MoMastor and Bachmai
k Waties. Th ono legal gentlemen, v*
suppose, will proceed to care for and de
food thc public in te ron ta. Let us als>
have our "Bureau of Manicipul Corree
Hon." Let our local abases be probed
The future prosperity and developmon
of Colombia hinge upon tho exposur
of any fraud and corruption that ma
' be found to exist. Let all good an
thoughtful citizens help the in vestige

New York be tricks that aro vain in Cc

.Our readers will excuse us for roferrin
again to the Columbia Union. But
sometimes happens that the insignii
canoe of an offender is lost ia the groa
nesS' of the offence. Such is the oat
here. The Union has raised itself to
''bad etninsnoe" in South Carolin:
Under the heading of "A Word More,
it shows how tho "galled jade winces,
It tries to answer our question aa I
what it meant by its hint of somebody
accountability. The answer is very ge
oral and vory lame. Wo do not i nd uh
ia insinuations. Wo generally say wh
we mean. Wo repeat it, that tho Ia
guage used by the Union, on sever
occasions, has indicated a purpose on i
part to intimidate people with the pow
of tho United States Government,
has fir un led tho United States Iii g
tim faces of oar people. It denies that
it is disposed to hide behind the Uuited
St a tea flag. Well, lot it como out, and
romain oat, for wo are not yet done with
i , by a great deni,
As to the insindation" conveyed in the
o'osing lines of its article, wo have sim?
ply to say that wo stand by our record.
We are satisfied with it. It'needs no
defence. Wo may, however, add, for
tho Union's bouejit, tliat.it would,Lo well
for it.ta.have truth for. tho basis of rte
innuendoes. If to public defamation, it
ventures to add slander unfounded and
personal, it places itself outside tho pule
bf journalistic liberty. Wo shall accord,,
to it tho freedom, of tho press, but not its
A Word More. ?
Tho ?7/iion has frequently harped upon
tho intolerance of tho people of this
State. A pretty point for this Bheet to
make! The highest evidenco of the
toloranco of our people ?8 to be found
in the fact that snob a journal as the
Union is countenanced at all here, and
that the editor is permitted to have gehe
thus far "unwhipt" of justier, for tho
slanders perpetrated ou onr people.
Again, it has waged unremitting war
upon "Ku KluxiBm," and helped to in?
volve whole communities in the net
spread, and yet the editor of the Union
began his career in South Carolina as the
ri'prganizff' of. the Union League-a
secret Radical league-oath-bound, and
at once political, military and religious
in its influence. We cannot'tell all tho
crimes committed by members of this
league. It is said, however, that'the
Union League was the parent of. what is
called the Ka Klox organization. The
editor, of the Union passed through
South Carolina aa the grand head-centre
and organizer of the Union League. It
would not be illogical to call the editor
of the Union the father of Ku Kluxistn.
Think of it-tho great Ku Klux Trapper,
in one sense, the parent of Ku KluxiamI
It takes a Union leaguer to catoh a Ku
Kluxer. More anon.
The Union sneers at our article on the
cardinal principles of true journalism.
No ono will be surprised that the noto?
rious Union should fail to appreciate the
elements laid down. As well expect the
"heathen Chinee" to have a perception
of an honest gamo at cards.

THB RUSSIAN PBINOE.-The New York
papers oontuiu lengthy aooonnts of the
intended reception of the Russian Duke
Alexis. Wo copy from the Herald the
following description of his "quarters:"
''For eleganoe and?a lavish expon di taro
in their preparation, the apartments pro?
vided for him surpass any thing yet'at?
tempted in this city, and do - honor, to
the judgment of those who have ordered

fixere tho Russian RJ?qis.ter, M._?atucnzy,
and tho Consul,. M. Bp.aisco, havo en?
gaged a suit of twelve rooms. These
are in one of the three four-story houses
Southerly from the main hotel. But a
few years ago they were built for aud
^occupied by some of o?r weal t' y mer
.ohauts, aud uro yot elegant aud spacious
edifices, and localed upon one of the
most central jet quietest of our gcuetal
thoroughfares. Meehan vi al Ul OS?
every kind aro palting on tho finishing
touches of their art, anti have converted
the place into a most charming palace.
Tho irou outruuee secures tho utmost
privacy, being, of course, monopolized
for tho purpose. Tho flrat noticeable
point is tho royal Russian escutcheon
frescoed upon the door panela. Within
all is now, gorgeous and elegant. Thc
parlors aud rear exteusiou have had the
old-fashioned folding doors removed,
and threo light and graceful urches ure
substituted. Splendid new marble mau?
l?is, with grates and fenders of heavy
silver plating and gilt, httve been put in;
expensive bronzes, docks, statuary and
other ornaments of rich and rare de?
scription, aro upon the mantels, and
beautiful landscapes uro f rum ed uga i ns I,
tho wulls. The lloor is covered with a
velvet carpet of brilliant colors, damask
and lace curtains depend at ibu windows,
gilt and bronze chandeliers, with porce?
lain reflectors, hung from tho ceilings,
and side brackets with prism gas jets are
npon the walls. Qreat mirrors extend
from floor to coruico. Etruscan vases
of alabaster, four feet high, are placed
in each corner, and a miniature Cologne
fountain of fine marble sits at the centre
of the rear windows. Over it-and tho
most prominent object that attracts the
attention-is a large and life-like por?
trait of the Russian CK ar. Thu walls
and ceiling aro frescoed with rare skill
and exquisite taste, clusters of fruit,
scattered vines, flowers, etc., beiug the
style chosen. The side walls aro paneled
and tinted gray, with a pink illusion, a
gilt border enclosing all. Over the
urches, draped in graceful folds, are tho
Russian nod American colors, glistening
in silk and gold and silver bullion fringe.
Next is the grand regal dining saloon.
The furniture is of black waluut, inlaid
with gilt. Tho table extends from the
front to the reur of the rooms. Thu
chairs are elegantly upholstered, ns are
also the divans aud lounges. Two splen?
did bullets and tables, with marble slabs,
are also there. The linen is of the finest
texture-table-cloths, napkins, otc. Th?
cutlery is entiroly new, and the silver is
from the St. Petersburg palace, which
tho Grand Duke is to bring with him.
The halls and stairways are carpeted
with a bright green carpet, with deep
orange foliated borders. The walls ure
tinted blue aud crimson, in gilt panels.
The gas pendant is of gold and bronze,
with porcelain globos. There aro four
rooms on the second floor. The front
hall room bas been over-arched ami
thrown open to the larger one, thus
forming u neat dressing room. This is
the royal bed-chamber. An Axminster
carpet of white, purple and gilt hues
cavers tho floor; it is very thick, and
yields to the foot like a cushion of furs.
A double bedstead, with a lofty head?
board, profusely carved, stands at one
side of the door. Acunopy made of the
Russian and American tiags is suspended
above. There is u large wardrobe, lined
with aromatic cedar panels. The bureau
is splendidly carved. On the maible
slab two heavy posts hold a large oval
mirror, on each side ol which is a winged
angel, kuockiug, with outstretched
hands. A marble-top centre table and a
full length mirror, swung on pivots, u
lounge, rocking-chairs, Jco., elegantly
upholstered, nro there. Tho tender,
grate, fcc, sparkle with gold and silver
sheen. A costly ormolu clock anti orna?
ments aro on the marble mantel. The
chandelier is of gilt and bronze, with
China globes and argand drop. Damask
curtains, of blue uud gold and whit?
face, aro on tho windows. Tho walls are
tinted azuro and purple. Tho Russian
ladies have arranged a pleasant surprise.
Thc colored photographs of all thu im?
perial family are arranged upon the
walls. Tho bath-room, closet, &c, luxu?
riously furnished, is between -that and
tho rear room. Tho latter is to bu occu?
pied by thu Grand Chamberlain, lt is
sumptuously furnished in black walnut,
tapestry carpet, paintings, ornaments,
?to. In the small hall room the body?
guard relief will be stationed, as is re?
quired by the royal luw. All over the
houso tho other rooms are handsomely
furnished in becoming style to the rank
of the distinguished occupants. The
tout ensemble exceeds, in refined tasto and
luxurious convenience, everything of the
kind heretofore undertaken in this coun?
try. Visitors are not allowed to enter
under any pretext, as it is intended to
proseut tbo rooms fresh, new, neat and
perfect in every rospeot.
It is authoritatively stated that the ad?
ministration intends to pursue the pro?
seut polioy in Utah until polygamy
is broken up in that Territory. It is
prepared for auy emergency in tho way
of resistance from the Mormons.
Eugenie was coldly received, it is said,
on the occasion of her recent arrival in
Madrid. Tho ex-leader of fashions wu H

The following report was presented:
To tho Honorable Mayor and Aldermen of
GENTLEMEN: I herewith present my
quarterly report, ending October 12.
Since tho 12lh of Joly, I have visited
and prescribed for at least 5UU persons
gratuitously, outside of the Alms House
and Hospital. There aro now 22 in?
mates in tho Alms House aud 13 in (hu
Hospital. I believe that tho poor of
Columbia aro as well cared for UH any
other County in tho Statu. They aro
well fed and clothed, and I am pleased
to say that I havo boen successful iu my
practico among them. I havo lost but. u
low, and ull of thom were mostly from
old age. I would recommend that n
small house, with two rooms large
enough to contain two beds in each
room, with a chimney in tho centro, be
built near the main Hospital, for the. ac?
commodation of malignant cases, and
those that uro offensive, such as typhoid
fever and syphilitic diseases; for it is not
pleasant, nor is it wholesome, to allow
such canes among the old and iniirn:
men and women. I will also say thal
there is some improvement to ho made
at thu Alms House. Tho stops of thc
main building aro in a very bad condi?
tion. Tho old building UIKU needs mud
repairing, as it is hardly tenable, ou nc
count of the leaks. It will not bo sufi
for the inmates to stay iu those roo tm
during the winter, fo? when it ruins tbej
cannot koep dry.
I will also say that there are two Ol
three inmates in tho Alms House tba
ure ublo to work, aud tho ouly cxcusi
they can offer is, that they aro en cu m
berod with ono or two children. Never
theless, they aro youug aud hearty. I
is duo that I should say that the stew
?inls and nurses have discharged thei
duties faithfully lind creditably. Be

At a few minutes past 9, President

the invited guests. This was responded
to by ex-Governor Bonham in a few re?
marks-winding np with a sentiment
relating to tho city of Columbia-that
she might arise, pbconix-like, from her
ashes and become once more a beautiful
city. Letters were read from John
Uart, E?q., acknowledging the receipt
of a card of invitation for Gov. Scott
who is absent from tho State; and from
Mayor Alexander, regretting his inability
to attend-owing to a previous import?
ant engagement. By geuerui consent,

Bush, (President of the Greenville and
Columbia Railroad,) who waa repeatedly
Col. J. I*. Thomas, in response to' re?
peated calls, delivered a short address.
Capt. R. O'Neale, Jr., was culled upon,

E. Hopo, Esq., was "out of tone,** and
could not comply with urgent requests
