East night about i 1 o'clock, an alarm of fire sounded from the City Hall, and the different engine houses. The alarm was occasioned by a bright light in the northern part of the city. The light was occasioned by the burning of the large stone and frame stable belonging to .lames Riddle, Son & Co., situated on Riddle's Road just this side of their cotton mills. At the time the fire broke out there was in the stable three mules, two horses and •ne pony. All of the live stock were rescued from the building with the exception of the pony which perished in the liâmes. The building was entirely consumed, together with all the hay, carriages, sleighs and great many other articles. The fire as first discovered by Leander F. Rid dle, who was on his way home from this city. He immediately had the «alarm whistje on their mills sounded which notified the fire department in this city. Although the Fire Department were soon on the ground notwithstanding they had to drivo through mud nearly hub deep. After arriving they were unable to get water and so had to abandon all efforts to subdue tho flames. The origin of the fire is supposed to be from an oendiary. The loss will probably be be tween $2000 «and $.1000. The Estate of Dh. Porter.— Wil liam Canby aud W• II. Poj ter, trustees of the estate ol Dr. R, It.

PAY.R AN IMPOßTANT LETTER. From tlio Balt. Gazette. In 1870, during the administration of Governor Scot*, in 8outh Carolina, there were iasued fraudulent state bonds to the amount of nearly six millions, which have since bien repu diated and declared void by the Leg islature. At that time Chamberlain was attorney general of the slate, and was one of three persons constituting the state board of finance, and which, with a man named Kimpton, had en tire control of the emission and sale of state bonds. The seal of the state was taken to New York, aad a large issue of bonds were sealed and sold, the proceeds of which did not go in. to the state treasury. This transac tion is conjectured to have had a great deal to do with Chamberlain's rise from poverty to afflueace, and indeed four hundred thousand dollars has been named us Chamberlain's share of the swag. It will be recollected that at llie state republican convention of South Carolina which nominated Chamberlain there was quite a dra matic scene between Elliot and Cham herlain. There had been a breach be tween the two, and Chamberlaiu bad denounced Elliott as a public crimi nal, and had declared that the salva tion of the Republican party of South Carolina lay in unloading such as he. Elliott vowed vengeance, and it was announced that at the tion be would explode a mine which would demolish Chamberlain. Elliott made a speech in which be ed his ability to ruin Chamberlain, but that "he had been approached by friends of Governor Chamberlain and advised not to make known what he had intended io." He had also been warned that what he might say would do no good, "as Governor Chamber lain lias sevenly-six votes Hint would stand by him if lie was proven guilty of Inrceny." lie made a great liourish of some documents he had, but lie did not enter into details, and the scene wound up with a reconciliation between the two, and both were put upon the republican ticket. The Charleston News and Courier has gotten hold of a copy of a letter held by Plliott at that time, and its con tents are interesting. It is as follows : Kei-tembek. 23.* 1870 .—Dear P.. Yours of the 21st came to me this evening. 1 was glad, indeed, to hear from you, aad es pecially that die hnances now promise to weather the storm. I have no doubt It was well to defer the "Statement" until October There is no special news here. For a lew days we have had fears of an outbreak in Laurens and Newberry, but we heard yes terday that the danger is over. About ttie United N ta tes senatorship I don't know what to say. /know very welt that It. is, in rvry way, better for me to reniait i where 1 far the rest of my term. Still, I am called al ready, and my position Is Just this : If my friends wish me to become a candidate for tiie sake of keeping the party from going over to negrophuism I will stand : but if no such need exists I should prefer to remain Where I am. What the chances are I have •ans of guessing now. 1 will serve my friends in anyway in my power, and especially you, J )o the commissions fool up pretty weit k Eh :■ Reyanls to K. Yours, faithfully, CHAMBER T, A in. The P. to whom this letter was ad dressed is State Treasurer Parker, who perpetrated such colossal frauds upon the slate. K. is lviinplon, the finan cial »gent who uegutiated the fraudu lent bonds. It was owing to his part nership with those persons that Cham herlain was able to say that it was in •very way letter for him to remain where he was. The salary of a United States senator would have been poor compensation for tbeloss of "the com missions" or percentages, according to which the spnils were divided. It is stated that further documentary evidence muy be forthcoming which will show Chamberlain up in uis true character of a public robber. men conven avow THE COMMON», From Philadelphia Press. Every person who lias baen in the Canitol at. Washington al Legislature i9 in session in that me tropolis of the Republic, or who has at tended the legislative session of any State in the Union, must have been struck with the fact that the debating took place and the business was done in the presence of a large number of audi tors and spectators of both sexes, for whom ample accomodation had b provided. There are galleries for strang ers in in every legislative chamber, na tional or local. The architect who planning one of these Capitols, should omit to provide such accommodation for the public would be justly regarded «as an incapable blocKhead. In England, by the ancient custom of Parliament, and by orders of both houses, strangers are not to be admitted while the houses are sitting. This is to carry out the idea that the business of P.arliainent shall be pri vately transacted, and if any one com plain of such a privacy or public affairs, the ready answeer is, "Tho newspaper reports of tho proceedings convey to the world a generally accurate idea of what has been said and done"—there is no official publication of anything. when the Nation een €.

The arguments for republi can* in the same case will be made by W. M. Evarts and Stanley Matthew-. Mr. O'Conor has gone to the bottom of the Floriila'case,andJsay.»JTiIilen's cause is unanswerably Strong.

HE MAKES A CLEAN BREAST OF THE RETURNING BOARD CONSPIRACY. J. W AIM HON WELLES WILLING AND KAGEP. TO DO ANVTHINO FOR MONET. Washington, Eebruary 1.— Maddox made a clean breast to-day before the Committee on Powers and Privileges of the House. Eich detail of the plot to sell the stolen votes in the hands of the Louisiana Returning Board for $1,000,(Km was given to the committee, and the cross-examination by Judge Lawrence upon data suggested by Wilson, aided by Chandler and supplied by telegraphic dispatches from prominent Republicans absent from the city, failed to shake his testimony. The strongest evidence is yet to come. Governor Kellogg said, in conversation this evening, that the case against the Republicans would be hopeless only when all the members of the Returning Board were implicated therein. Evidence in complete proof of this fact will be sub mitted before the committee, if not to morrow, at an earl; day. In a recent dep osition Kenner claimed that he had kept the minntes of the executive ses sion of the hoard. This claim upon tiie production of his minutes, was found be without foundation. Memoranda cl each session had and of other facts in connection with the meetings of the Re turning Board were kept in detail by a subordinate in the employ of the board. These memoranda are now in possession of the committee.
