experts for the defence had assailed the
testimony of Prof. Lonry, stating that
his analysis and tests were insufficient,

dence of the presence of metal. Prof.
Loury had pursued his analysis and ex?
periments, and was now present in court
with the metal obtained by him, and the
State now proposed to produce this
metal to the court aud to the jury, and
prove to the experts for tho defence
themselves whether it is the metal or
not. The metal was now here, in quan?
tities large enough to be manifested to
the satisfaction of its presence. They
offered to introduce this evidence, first,
upon the ground that it hud been disco?
vered siuce the commencement of the
trial; and second, that it was strictly re?
butting testimony and admissible. On
that gronnd, the Attorney-General ar?
gued in favor of tho proposition. At
the conclusion of his argument, without
reply from the counsel for the d?fonce,
the court held the proposed evidence in?
admissible. Tho evidence closed und

To Hie Citlxens Ot Columbi ii.
As has neen seen by tho general appoal of
tho Executive Committee, tho Board of Trus?
tees of the Columbia Femalo Collego have
determined* to ro-opon that institution in
October next-provided a sufficient sum of
monoy c.m bo rained to pay off existing in?
debtedness and purchase necessary furniture.
As tho city of Columbia will bo pre-eminently
benefited by tho re-opening of the College,
it has been deemed not inappropriate to ad?
dress to her citizens especially au appeal for
euch assistance as will insure the success of
iii is most important enterprise
The Columbia Femalo College is essentially
au institution of Columbia, whoso name lt
hears, and the city should no longer consent
to have it remain in its present abnormal
condition. If put into operation, it would
contribute in no small degree to tho growth
aud prosperity of the city. It would bring, at
utated pei leds, largo numbers of visitors from
all seciions of tho State and tho South, and
would be tho means of disbursing annually in
your midst as much as $100,000. Another
great attraction would be added to your rising
city, aud another step bo taken in the march
of prosperity and wealth. All departments ot
business would feel the new impetus gb/ep,
aud the way would be openod to other and
These considerations thus briefly alluded
to must address themselves forcibly to Ibo
citizens of Columbia; while to the State at
large the Trustees guarantee that no efforts
will bo spared to make the Collego a ti rsi
cUss seat of learning in all respects-ono ol
which the whole South may well bo prtsud.
The Trustees, in order to rake tue neces?
sary funds, have adopted tho following me?
1 To is-.uo bonds of tho Collego iu sums ol
$100, ruo ni og ti fo yearn, without interest.
2. tty scholarships.
3. Uy donations.
Tho uodeisigned, Ezccntivo Committee on
behalf of the Trustees, earnestly appeal lo
the cit ?zens of Columbia for help in this noble
enterprise. By your interest in tho canse of
female education-by your interest in tho en?
larged advantages and growth of your city
wu appeal o you to como forward now and
start the Columbia Female Colli go once moro
on its career of usefulness.

all deference to the Columbia PHONIX,
wo beg to say that we shall not cease oar
efforts to prevail npon the present Legis?
lature to adopt the "good und just go?
vernmental principio" of minority rep?
resentation. We have a doable tunk to
perform, viz: to punish tho public rob?
bers who hold high carnival at the capi?
tal, aud to prevent stealing and insure 11
butter government in the future. The
Himplo expulsion of Scott & Co. may
only ead iu turning the Statu over tn a
i now sot of plunderers, who will begin
j the alphabet of crimo from the begin
j ning ut our expenso. Bat tho convic?
tion of tho criminals, coupled with a law
which secures proportional representa?
tion to the white minority, will afford a
reasonable hopo that robbery in the
future rnuy ho substantially impractica?
ble. Wo hold, therefore, that in push?

TJSOIBTXITTVB MATTERS.-The time of
the Hoo.se waa consumed, yesterday, in,
the discussion of the special message of
the Governor and the report of the spe?
cial joint oommittee, appointed last
winter to investigate the books, ?co., ol
the Finanoial Agent and the State Trea?
surer, which came up as the unfinished
business of Monday.
Byas, pf Orangeburg, led off, and in
Aided upon the HonBe, for two and-a
half hours, a rambling and stupid ha
ran gue, in his usnal style. He assum?e
to be the champion of Gov. Scott, an<
undertook, as best he could, to defeni
him against the startling disclosure
made by Bowen, on Monday. H
hoped, he said, that in his remarks h
would not so far forget his character, a
a gentleman, as to indulge in snob vu!
garity as had fouled the lips of the gen
tleman who so perfidiously and mali
cionsly attaoked the Governor, all c
whoso charges, said he, were alike ur
true with the vile slander that he (Byui
had received 812,000 for his vote on

That the Treasurer had reported 83,20(
000 of bonds as having been sold, ai
the balance bad merely been hypott
cated for lor.nB, which, unless he h
studied the English language in val
was quite a different matter from iesui
the bonds. Referring to the bonds tt
had been issued to redeem the $500,0
j of bills receivable, aud to raiBO t
181,000,000 to pay the interest on t
publio debt, the Aot, said Byas, does r
uay how many bonds the Goverr
might issue, ile might have issued
house full, if so mool? had been nee
sary, to seoure the required sum
mouey; and the Governor ought not
be held culpable for doing only what 1
Legislature authorized and instruct
him to do.
AB to the conversion bonds, the (
vernor had signed but $2,200,000
them; refusing to sigu any more, wi
ho found that the Treasurer was us
them for other purposes than the law
touded. But the Treasurer had o
taken a different view from the Govern
and under the Act authorizing the Fin
cial Agent of tho State to pledge any i
all bonds of the State as collateral se
rity for loans, had turned ' over th
bonds to Mr. Kimpton, to use iu
manner prescribed by law, and the c
version bonds had ull gone np in t
way. That was all, and what was
wrong in conforming to law? Fart)
said Byas, the gentlemau (Bowen) tal
uboat Gov. Scott being connected v
what he called Hardy Solomon's ehavi
shop, and using $300,000 of State ba
to establish that institution; but sui
statement was too absurd to merit a
mont's attention from any intellif
mind, for the Governor certainly had
much Bcnco to usc tho bonds of the 8
in thut way, for the Financial Aj
would have been certain to find him
The gentleman, too, wanted to k
why Kimpton wasn't arrested whe
was here. By way of parenthesis

That was why the Governor didn't
him arrested. Mr. Kimpton, said 1
ready to settle to-day, but he is ere

securing his $080,000 of commiesio
Mr. Bowen-I should like for tho
tleman to explain himself, here,

institute proceedings against Kim]
why does lie oppose me in my ondi
to fasteu their guilt upon the accost

Byas-I'll tell you why. It is be

Bowen then rose to a question o

alleged as to his oust record, ono
was certain, that after his arrival i
lumbla, ho had received frequen
urgent invitations to partake of tl
vernor's hospitality, und it ill b
him or any of his toola to attac

of Representatives of the State of South

else but to rale South Carolina, and to
ruin her; but they shan't doit, while!
have a voice on this floor. I think, now,
that I have about demolished this report;
bnt I will go on a little longer. Byan
then prooeeded to demolish the charges
of the Committee in reference to thc
