It was fully 15 minutes after 8 o'clock before the com?
mittee, headed by Mayor Schroeder, appeared upon the
stage. When the applause which ensued had subsided,
the Mayor announced that the Committee of Arrange?
ment? bod selected Judge Gilbert to preside. Judge Gil?
bert spoke n*? follow? :
I. ?iUK?. ASD (?kmikmkn: The occasion that has called
ns together has been too strongly and too sadly im
Srcsaed on our heart* and minds to need mention. Our
uty to the dead has tx-eii discharged, but there remains
s duty to the living, to the widows and orphuns who
bare beeu deprived of their chief means of support. I
caunot inform you of the extent of the des? lutlon ; that
la for others. I can only express the hope.and ihe belief
that the response to this appeal In behalf of the needy
will be worthy of the Christian community In which we
live. (Applause.)
The report of the comuilttee, which was next read,
after alluding to the circumstance? which gave rise to
the formation of the organization, stated that the follow?
ing sum? have been received:

The investigations made as to the condition of Ihe fani
ule* of the victims roaiilted In ascertaining the following
facts : Of those who perished, 31 left widows and small
children who had beta entirely aepeudcut on them for
tljelr support. Four left widows alone entirely destitute.
Tweuty-two left widowed mothers with children who
looked almost exclusively to the ones taken away for
their subsistence. Eight left widowed mothers whose
last family tic was swept awny by the flames, and who
are now entirely dependent on the charity of *trangers.
Six left orphan slaters and brothers who depended ou
then), and 45 youn* men destroyed left parents who had
learned to lean ou tuera, in tlit-lr declining years, and on
whose aid their families mainly do?K-uded for their ex?
istence. Eleven widows who are about to become
mothers are numbered among the suffering survivors.
Two hundred and slx?y-three families hav? been visited ;
lot? of Utes? will require permanent assistance, and 75
will require temporary aid for the Winter at least. The
aggregate number of persons embraced in these familles
la, so far as known, between 600 and 700. The sum Ms*
bursed for temporury relief was $1,500, and ?,3.000
would be required to pay funeral aud other expense? not
provided for by the city. Alit-ndy allot meats to the
amount of $073 a we? k had been made, ami the proba?
bilities were it would be necessary to increase the
smtmut to 81,000 per week. No expenso had been in?
en rred by the c4)uimittoo In their Investigations, and
thanks were returned to the voluuteer visitor*? aud to
the Press.
The Rev. Charles H. Hull was tbon introduced. He
said, among other things :
Webavctuettoii.sk how Brooklyn, this great city of
churches ?mil of Christianity, la prepared to meet this
great occasion and re*poud to a eaH on tho proroondrat
sentiment* of the hit man heart. It is meet that we
should bow our heads \? hen God speaks. The feeling I
have In regard to this matter, after ui.v heart bus paid Its
tribute to the lost, Is to recognise the fact that uo one
thing since the drum of war sounded in our streit? im*
occurred to emphasize the fact that we are all bound
together, that all political ami religion? distinction*, the
lltn-.s of rjcli an l pour, SstgSSl anil vulgar, have been
swept away. We nave come to give nil. to bear a tribute
from man to roan. We are to take up these pet slooera ol
Heaven to our hearts. The duty of the committee la to
see that the money shall go wisely to the pour women
and orphan children, who have a heavy tunden to bear.
If then-Is too nii'rli, let it go to the Bremen of tin-ein-,
?who deserve recognition, so that tln-y may SHOW whsD
thev t'o Into a 1rs thai if they i?-nsli ttieir fellow cltlxeni
?? 111 take care of their widows and ornha s. God loves a
cheerful liivci ; kt us give freely, willingly, SSbly.
The ltev. Emory J. Huynos whs the next speaker. Ha
alluded to the lessons of the calamity, the most promi
m-nt of which was the unification of human nature. He
waa followed by Mr. Botcher, whose introduction was
greeted with prolonged applause. He said :

WATER METKRS CALLED FOR.
T1IK MUNICIPAL SOCIKTY IN FAVOIt OP TIIKM.
Greorj4-e Ii. lintlcr, foriiu-ily t-diior of 7/n
Journal of Commerce, read a paper last evening liefori
tbe New-Yurk Municipal tkicie'..?, ui No. (17 .MiiUiaou-sve.
on " The Crot?n Water Htipply und the Question of i
New A?iut?duet." Hu rcvieiveil tin tneasiiree lieretofor?
taken to furiilab an u?lc<[iinte supply of Crot?n water lui
tbe city. Under hii u<t liasse?! lu 1871 two ?toi.ig?
reservoirs weie built, ami a third would lie uinpi?
for present Heed?. He said that three tunes tbe
present supply of water could he got from tbe valley ol
tbe Crot?n River. It mus well known alsu that as unieli
water was wasted daily as was used. Tbe system wbleb
permitted this waste was nil wrong. WaBBf meters
sbuuld be intrixliieeil i? in i acii.iige i.'i.n'r for the water
used aboie a ivrtalu <iuaiittty. It was tint right to mort
gage the pro|rerty of tbe city for a uew aqueduct, wben
l in- use of a water meter would prevent t be
extravagant waste under tbe present svst?-in. 'i'he
prejudice against metufa Would soon appear
tiiireasoiiiible, and tbe ]ieople would lirefer t?i

Charleston, S. C, Dec. 21.?A mei-tinj* of the
conservative tax-payer? sTM held to night, snd was
the largest ever held within doors in Charleston.
Hibernian Hall, the most spacious i o the
city, was densely crowded, the lower
floor being packed with those unable to
find room in the hall wlun- the meeling was held,
and the street? beiug filled with hundreds of per?
sons who could not net into the building. Tho pro?
ceedings were entirely liartnoiiiiuiH, and the follow?
ing resolutions were unanimously adopted and a
committee appointed to carry them into effect :
Resol ceil, That the Omsm valive citizens of Cliarleston,
Democrats and 1U* publicans, do recognise Wade Hamp?
ton, and none other, as flu* lawful Governor of South
Carolina. To him alone will ihey yield, as Governor,
olietllence and support, and to him they pledge ?neb aid
aud assistance, moral, lluauclul, and material, an may Is;
required for the estiilillNliuieht ami maintcmtiicc of the
constitutional government ol which he I* the lic.nl.
Rctoletd, That we recognlte W. V. Simpson, and none
other, as the lawful Lieutenant-!.n\t rnor of South Caro?
lina, aud that We n-?senlas the House of which the Hon.
W. II. Wallace it- Speaker as the legally constituted
House o! Representatives of South Carolina.
Jittolretl, lhat I). H. Chanibcrluin. having been de?
feated st the poll* as a candidate for reelection, and
p'accd iu iifllce ii|miii the declaration of an Illegal General

regarded by us asa u?ui pel, aud we here avow our un?
changeable resolution nover to recognize him ss Goy
Staat and SOT Intl'txilili* determination to repudiate his
every act snd every act of tin* pretenden General Assem?

as bel?g without authority of law aud null aud void.
taSMSaf.Tkat while we, by these resolution?, SSSPfft
our right and determination lo lie governed only by offi?
cer* ?horn the majority of the pes?U have choiten, and
while we are fixed in usifBSt Is oppose to the SttSTSMSt
tue efforts of I). II. Chamls-rlnin, and hi* associates, lo
