A PAPER FOR THE PEOPLE.
The Herald is in the highest respect a Fam
ily Newspaper, devoted to the material in
terests or-the people of this County and the
State. It circulates extensively, and as an
Advertisine medium offers unrivalled ad
vantages. ior Terms, see first page.
The Tax Bills.
The majority of the House, under
the urgent advice of Gov. Chamber
lain, have at last taken better counsel
and reduced the tax bills. The Com
mittee of Ways and Means, called by
the News & Courier th. "Pieked
Nine," were defeated. The present
participle would better qualify the
said "nine." They seemed to be de
termined to do the picking even of
the last shred of meat off the nearly
bare bones of the Taxpayers. They
were picked to do the picking. It
dawned at last, however, upon their
minds that if the Governor should veto
their appropriations-which he seem
ed determined to do-and the bills
could not be passed over his head the
party might seriously suffer. It is
not very common for a Governor to
enter a caucus for the purpose of in
fluencing its action. We can certain
lv find no fault with him in this case
as he succeeded to have the taxes re
duced at least one mill. In this in
stance he has certainly tried his best
and tried successfully to convert his
promises into deeds. We recolleet a
similar beneficial action on his part
during the pending election for Judge
of the Charleston Circuit.
The SUpply Bill has been cut down
from 10i to 9j mills, at which figure
it passed its final reading in the House.
The amount is distributed as follows.:
Sec. 1. For salaries .............-. --
2 Penal and charitable institu-'
tions...........- -- .-- 1
3.. Public schools............... 2
4. Expenses General Assembly.. 1 1-10
5. Printing............-.----- - -
6. Interest on public debt.....2
14. Deficiencies................. 1 2-5
The House passed likewise to its
third reading the Bill which provides
for the payrment of certain claims;
general past indebtedness (the big
Bonanza, if we understand the legis
lative slang correctly.) It levies 1
mill for four years; and another bill
for the payment of certain special
claims (the little Bonanza.) It levies
13-15 of a mill for four years. The
whole State levy will be, therefore,
within 11 mills.
The President's Message.
After some Centennial Buncombe
in reference to the immense advance
made by this nation since 177'0, the
President suggests that in order to
secure a similar progress in future. a
constitutional amendment be submitted
to the several Legislatures for ratifica
tion, "making it the duty of each of
the several States to establish and for
ever maintain free public schools ade
quate to the education of all the chil
dren in the rudimentary branches
within their respective limits, irre
spective of sex, color, birthplace, or
religion ; forbidding the teaching in
said schools of religious, atheistic or
pagan tenets, and prohibiting the
granting of any school funds or school
taxes, or any part thereot, either by
legislative, municipal, or other au
thority, for the benefit or in aid, di
rectly or indirectly, of any religious
seet or denomination, or in aid or for
the benefit of any other object of any
nature or kind whatever." He then
recommends the taxation of church
property, with the exception of cemne
teries and church edifices. The meas
uros themselves, if passed by State
Legislatures, are certainly recommend
able. Why church property should
not contribute to the expenses of the
government which guards the rights
of the ecclesiastical bodies and keeps
them in safe possession, is not easily
to be seen ; such bodies, although con
tinually recommending to others the
laying up of treasures in Heaven,
have since time immemorial been fond
of investing in real estate on the
hither bank of the river Jordan. These
measures, however, are not proper
subjects of National Legislation ; they
would form another and very dangerous
step in the centralization of our Gov
ernment. Their recommendation by
Grant is only an electioneering trick
based upon the increasing national
apprehension of the growing power of
the Roman Catholic Church.
In reference to Cuba, Grant has no
recommendation to offer. He says:
"While conscious that the insurrec
tion in Cuba has shown a strength
and endurance which make it at least
doubtful whether it will be in the
power of Spain to subdue it, it seems
unquestionable that no such civil or
ganization exists, which may be recog
.idas ..an indemendent ornment
capable of performing its international
obligations, and entitled to be treated
as one of the powers of the earth. A
recognition, under such circumstances, I
would be inconsistent with the facts,
and would compel the power granting it
soon to support by. force the Govern
ment to which it had really given its
only real claim of existence."
He is like.vise opposed to the recog
nition of the insurgents as belligerents,
beeause the conflict in Cuba, in his
opinion, dreadful and devastating as are
its incidents, does not rise to the fear
ful. dignity of war. The moneyed
men of the country, on whom he re
lies for re-election, are still afraid of
war with Spain. Let them, however,
become convinced that the annexation
of Cuba is a safe and profitable in
vestment, and the rebellion will soon
assume in Grant's eyes the dignity of
war. The relations with Mexico are
declared to be in an unsettled state.
The depredations by armed bands on
the Rio Grande may at any time fur
nish convenient ground for a quarrel
with the neighboring Republic.
The following recommendations in
reference to trans-Atlantic telegraphs,
intending to prevent a monopoly, are
good, and should be adopted:
1st. No line should be allowed to
land on the shores of the United States
under the concession from another
Power,.which does not admit the right
of any other line or lines, formed in
the United States, to land and freely
connect with, and operate through, its
2nd. No line should be allowed to
land on the shores of the United States
which is not, by treaty stipulation
with the government from whose
shores it proceeds, or by prohibition,
in its charter or otherwise, to the
satisfaction of this goverament, pro
hibited from consolidating or amalga
mating with any other cable telegraph
line, or combining therewith for the
purpose of niaintaining the cost of
In reference to the currency ques
tion, he advocates an early return to
specie payments, and is in favor of
adhering to the present law fixing the
initial point of resumption on the 1st
January, 1879. He asks Congress for
further legislation to give full effect
to the existing law. He recommends
a repeal of so much of the legal ten
der act as makes these notes receiva
ble for debts contracted after a date,
to be fixed in the act itself, say no laterI
than the 1st January, 1877, and that
the Treasurer shall redeem monthly
two millions of legal tender notes, and
issue in lieu thereof 3-65 bonds. In
the War Department he recommends
the trial of torpedoes under the corps
of engineers. The Navy Department
he finds in a satisfactory condition,
although many who ought to know
consider it in a miserable state of
efficiency. The amount of pensions
paid last year is nearly thirty millions,
an enormons sum, considering that
Confederate soldiers don't get a cent
of it. In relation to the Centennial
Exposition, he says:
"The exhibition being an interna
tional one, and the government being
a voluntary contributor, it is my opin
ion that its contribution should be of
a character in quality and extent to
sustain the dignity and credit of so
distinguished a contributor. The ad
vantages to the country of a creditable
display are, in an international point
of view, of the first importance, while
an indifferent or discreditable partici
pation by tbe government would be
humiliating to the patriotic feelings
of our people themselves."
Well! Uncle Sam should not be
stingy on such an occasion. He finally
recommends that Mormonism be up
rooted by punishing it as a crime.
The message is very voluminous,
but reveals little of the real intentions
of the President.

Charleston News (& Courier, by order

'here are two steel engravings, a mammoth R

pattern in twelve colors; bes ides 4nnumner- w

Joshua Reynolds; and she is about the most w

n Ptiladelphia, and the Declaration of Inde
pendence, which was signed there. It is the
est number 'Peterson'' has ever issued, and
hat is saying a very great deal. It seems to
as that every body will take "Peterson" ,in

MOUNT PLEASANT, S. C.,
December 6, 1875.
EDITOR NEwnERRY HERALD:
On Sund:ty, 28th ultimo, Bishop Howe
made a visitation to this Pari,h, and
held service in the old Colonial Brick
Church, six miles from the village,
which w:a consecrated last year near
Christmas. after the repairs and reno
vation it had undergone, This was
one of the old historic churches, having
originally been built in 1706. Many of
the residents of the village attended, I
and in the evening the Bishop preached
at the church in this village, giving as
is always the case with him, a most
interesting and instructive sermon.
In this connection, the idea occurred
to me that an occasional sketch of some
of the churches and other old and historic
structures in and around old Charleston
would not be unacceptable to the nu
merous readers of your valuable paper.
I take the liberty to do so.
ST. PILIP'S (EPISCOPAL) CHURCH.
The original St. Philip's Church was
a wooden structure on the site of the
present St. Michael's-S. E. corner
Meeting and Broad streets-the first
minister of the Episcopal Church was
Rev. Atkin Williamson; when he came
to Charleston does not appear. but he
was there in 1680. The Rev. Samuel
Marshall was the next, and was ap
pointed in 1696. The "Act of Assem
bly" appropriated a salary of ?150 per
annum, and directed "that a negro man
and woman, and four cows and calves
be purchased for his use. and paid for
out of the Public Treasury." He died
in 1699 of a malignant disease. probably
yellow fever, which swept off many of
the principal inhabitants of the Town.
The Rector next appointed was Rev. Ed
ward Marston, who arrived in 1700. In
thatyearit was computed that there were
in the Province 5,500 persons. besides
negroes and Indians. The Rev. Richard
Marsden succeeded to the Rectorate in
1705, where he continued until the ar
rival of Commissary Johnson fn 1707.
On the 30th November, 1706, the wor
ship of the Church of England was
established by law. The London "So
ciety for the propagation of the Gospel
in Foreign Parts" furnished most of the
Missionaries of the Cross and built al
most entirely all of the old Colonial
Parish Churches of the Protestant Epis
copal Church, most of which were
erected about 1706-8-9, and were built
substantially of brick.
The old wooden building of St.
Philip's (on the present site of St.
Michael's) was taken down in 1727,
when the (then new) St. Philip's was
commenced in Church street . near
Queen, but not completed until 1733.
The nave was 74 feet long, the belfry
37, the portico 12 feet and 22 1-2 feet
wide, the building 62 feet wide. In the
interior, two rows of Tuscan pillars sup
ported five arches on each side and the
galleries-the galleries were added sub
sequently to the building of the church.
There was no chancel. The east end
was a panelled wainscot, with Corin
thian pillasters supporting the cornice of
a fan-light, and a vane in the fornm of a
cock surmounted the steeple, which was
about 80 feet high.
This venerable pile succumbed to the
great fire of February, 1835, arid the
present beautiful structure was erected
on its ruins, but receded a few feet to
allow the widening of the street. The
new edifice was opened for divine ser
vice about the spring of 1838. The
general style of the architecture of the
old church is preserved in the new one,
except that the Tuscan pillars which
supported the arches in the former
have had Corinthian columns substituted
in their place. Rev. C. E. Gadsden
was ordained in 1807 and elected assist
ant minister in 1809, subsequently lie
was called to the Rectorship, in which
position he continued after his election
as Bishop of the Diocese, and until his
death, which occurred in 1851.
THE CIRCUI.AR OR CONGRtEGATIONAUIST
The original building on this site was
of wood, and known as the "White
Meeting," p)robably the origin of the
name of Meeting street, on the east
side of wvhich it stood. This was suc
ceeded in 1804 by the brick edifice of the
form which gave the name to the church
-this rotunda was 88 feet in diameter
and crowned by a dome. The front of
the building was formed by a row of
six columns extending to the outer edge
of the pavement. The "great fire" of
1861 destroyed it, and the ruins still
occupy the site, a small building having
been erected to the south of the ruins
for the purpose of holding religious
services. Rev. WV. HI. Adams is the
esteemed pastor of this congregation.
THE BAPTIST CHURCUES.
The first building erected by this de
omination is that now used as the
"Seamen's Bethel," on the east side of
Church near Water street, and from the
flagstaff above the apex of its roof waves
the Bethel Flag, and from the boat
shaped pulpit the g]ad tidings of the
Gospel is promulgated by that eloquent
and veteran advocate of the cause of the
seamen-Rev. WV. B. Yates. A short
distance beyond. on the wvest side of the
street,. the imposing and chaste build
ing known as the First Baptist Church
was erected, in lieu of the one just
mentioned, for the use of the congre
gtion, and one of the earliest pastors
who officiated there was that venerated
ad universally esteemed p)hysician and
servant of God, the Rev. Richard Fur
man. He was succeeded by Rev. Basil
Manly, that gentle and pure-minded
Christian minister. On his removal to
Alabama, the Rev. Dr. Brantly, the
learned and able President of the Col
lege of Charleston, was called as the
pastor. During his p)astoraLte the Went
worth St. Baptist Church was built on the
north side of that street near Meeting
street. It was sold immediately after
the late war to a colored congregation,
and the membership to a great dlegree
merged into the "Citadel Baptist
Previous to 1640 about 4,000 Presby
terians arrived in this country from
Scotland an.d Ireland. In 1684 a small
colony of persecuted Scoteh, under Lord
ardross, came to this State. In 1704
r Presbtery was constituted in Phila
delphia. in 1716 a Synod was formed.
