COMMITTEE MEETING-THE LIOBNSE
I Binn.-Saturday morning, turee commit
' teea from Charleston and ono from this
city assembled in the room of the
Finance Committee of the Senate, for
the purpose of giving their views rela?
tivo to the effect of the passage of the
measure known us the "General License
Mr. Porter, acting as chairman of the
whole committee, stated, iu substauco,
in his argument, that tho reasons why
the bill should not pass wero set forth iu
tho memorial, aud alluded particularly
to the phosphate mining interests.
Equality of taxation, ho held, was a just
rule, and ia strict accordance with the
Constitution of tho Stute. No constitu?
tion of any State expressed this stronger
than thut of this State, aud it WUB much
better iu this respect than the former
cue; it had one principia running
through it-equality of burden-whereas
the old did not. This principle is vio?
lated by tho provisions of ibo license
bill; he did not Bay it was douo inten?
tionally, but nevertheless it trespassed
upon the principles of the fundamental
(aw of the Statu. Under tho present
law, the phosphate companies pay theil
tuxes iu au equal manner, and so long at
this was likely to stand so, they had nc
cause of complaint, oven though thej
might be onerous, except, perhaps, tba
of removing present officers, aud putting
others in their places who would reduct
tho tuxes. Tho proposed alteration
license-?H a tux to raise rcveuuo, am
therein lies tho cuuso of complaint. I
makes these companies subject to illegu
discrimination, and makes tho grievanc
two-fold-many other companies uro no
required to comply with it. Ono purlieu
tar reason why these phosphate com pa
nies should not be discriminated ugaiuet
is because they aro engaged iu develop
mg wealth, lunch to the benefit of th
State. It had been long complained ti
tu tho State, that wu were slow iu thi
respect and encouraging manufacturo
Thu bul is calculated to destroy ?ill cu
deavorsiu this direction. Hundreds t
laborers also depend upon tho open
tums of these companies, and the bi
will operate lo destroy tho companies
Ho did not think what would be th
effect of tho passage it such a bill hu
boon properly calculated by tho friend
of it. It would drive away the vat
amount of capital from abroad that wt
being invested, and which now pays
tax equally and fairly with others, und?
the (tit valorem principle. Ooiug thi;
you require that thc oompnuies pay
license-un additional tax; ol om* cou
puny that has635U,0UU invested, ?17,501
Why, the mere statement of such
thing its that shews it perfectly tuui
strous. After paying its fair proportic
of taxation, it lu subjected to au add
tioual live per cent. Tho charter gran
the company license, and after iuvestii:
hundreds of thousands of dollars, jc
turu now, und say the business shall tn
be carried ou unless un additional tux
paid. It is uot just; it is uot right;
revolts against tho souse of justice.
Mr. Porter said, further, he suppose
tho idea may be entertained that tl
companies were making immense profil
this was an entire misapprehension. I
was authorized to say that ouly one
them hud paid uuy dividend at all, nt
during thc past year none had paid au
and lt is doubtful if they did this yee
it would depend on circumstances, ai

most confidence, was unable to sell

they are not in that couditiou to mt

is a fair thing for encouragement. T

before tho committocA, give their rem

Mr. S weegun, from tho Charit

He notioed the disoriminantion made in
the bill against Riohland and Charleston
Counties, as to the other Counties, and
asked that if a license was to bo pro?
vided for, it would be made as light on
the poor people ns possible.
G. Lamb Buist, Esq., Chairman of the
Committee from the Charleston Board
of Trade, spoke in reference to the
effect the license bill would havo on
banking, stating that since tho closo of
the vrar he had beeu a close observer
from the moimi ni ns to the seaboard
Of the difficulties existing preventing
prosperity, wero ,the past and present
rates of interest; it was tho most serious
obstacle all had to contend with; and
the bill proposes another; ono-hnlf tho
banks uro national institutions under tho
protection of the United Staten. No
further revenue could be produced from
these, nnd nil legislation, therefore,
would fall on the local bunks. Su?h ii
tax us $1,500 on a bank of small capital,
would blot them out. Ha know of no
way in which tho rato of interest could
bo reduced, unless by establishing bank?
ing institutions; therefore, such tuxes es
will blot them out, should not be levied
upon them. It is the duty of evary ono
to foster these institutions regardless ol
politics, and, therefore, to look well iutc
tho matter and soe that tho license bo ut

Hardy Solomou, Esq., from tho Co
lumbiu Board of Trude, said ho would
say as to tho effect of certain taxation
that -t would fall v?ry heavily ou sinai
merchants-would blot thom out, nor
throw tho whole business into the hand:
of the capitalists. He was not prepare?
to go into a full discussion of the sub
ject then, ns ho bad not been notified o
tho meeting until that morning, but In
sincerely hoped tho committee wouh
titk?! into ?crions consideration the mat
ter now being discussed.
W. O. Bee, Esq., from tho Chnrlestoi
Chamber of Commerce: His nrgumcu
showed that, prior to the establishtnuu
?if phosphate companies in this State
much higlu-r prices had been paid fo
foitili/.ers, and that those imported wer
very inferior. Mr. Bee went in ?leta
into the merits of South Carolina pbos

thc companies as being known th rou gi:
out th?? Stute, und hehl that tho liceus
law would put an end to tho great ac
vantages to laborers, to farmers, an
deprive the State of great advantages.
Mr. J. B. Ezell, of the Hoard of Trad
nf this eily, called atteution to the iii;
uritnimilieu mado against Richland au
Charleston Counties. There were, li
said, many small dealers iu this eily wh
this bill would ruin if it was passed, an
they would be obliged to leave and i'm
other business. He did not suppose

object to a license law, but they did u<

EARL GRANVILLE'S NOTB.-The Wash?
ington correspondent of the Baltimore
Sun telegraphs as follows to that jour?
nal, under date of the 23d instant:
There was au extraordinary and a full
session of the Cabinet to-day on the of?
ficial despatoh sent to this Government
by Earl Granville, through the British
Minister, on the subject of tho American
cuse as submitted to tho Geneva confer?
ence, and whioh was not received in full
till this morning, though the tenor of it
hud been previously communicated.
This fact furnishes denial enough to the
Feusationul telegrams which were 6ent
hence lust night, purporting to give not
only tho details of Granville's letter, but
also of tho reply of the Secretary of
Stute to tho same-though it may be
added that tho Secretary hus not written
a lino of his reply, aud the Cabinet to?
day did not decide precisely what the
terms of it should be. The despatch of
Earl Granville is represented as being
eutirely friendly in spirit, aud couched
iu a simple statement that her Majesty's
Government did not understand that
consequential damages were covered by
tho treaty of Washington, or were to be
submitted to the Geneva conference. It
makes no demand for a modification ol
withdrawal of any part of tho case. The
tenor of the despatch certainly does nol
indicate that any belligerent feeling cac
possibly grow out of the correspondence,
While tho exact tenor of the reply,
which will bo made in the conrso of r
week, is uot known, tho impression if
general among the members of the Ad
ministration that this Gov.crnrreut wil
state that it submitted a completo casi
to the conference, leaving no room foi
future dispute to arise on any questiot
covered by thu treaty, and that it is do
gi rous that tho arbitrators should decide
first, whether these claims como witkii
the di finition of tho treaty, and, if eo
to then decide whether they are allowa
Ide or not. If tho arbitrators dec?an
that tho protocol and treaty show that i
was never intended tu have the qucstioi
of indirect damages submitted, thei
that portion of the American CUBO ma
bu ruled out. In a word, it is uudet
stood that this Government will take th
position that everything shall be left t
arbitration, and to alude by thu deni
sion, according to its plighted fui tl:
The text of tho reply will probably b
written out and submitted to tho Cub
net next Tuesday, aud, if approver
