WASHT :OTON, November 28.-Hon. F?McMul?
len to-day presentad a petition from the ci ti
sens of Virginia, to Genaro! Grant, against the
extension of tho Stay Laws beyond January 1,
Grant expressed himself ?favorably, but de?
sired to consult Schofield before acting.
Stonemau, it is understood, opposes a fur?
ther extension, and advises those who cannot
pay their debts to take the benefit of tho bank?
rupt law and start afresh.
Grant's petitioners represent that a farther
extension of the Stay laws involves the credit
of the State, and will prevent the payment of
the interest on the State debt.
The State Department urges travellers, in
view of the disturbed condition of f ireign
countries, to carry passports. They cost five

by Mrs. Marshall A. Roberts, given in honor of
! the President elect. It is stated tbat at those
two reunions, the President elect will see the
"Creme de la creme" of Gotham society.
The following paragraph, in the Herald's
version of General Rousseau's report, does not
appear in the copy at Grant's headquarters :
"Of this stripe were some of the members of
the Republican Cimpaign Committee. In a
consultation at my headquarters, at which
Dr. South worth, a controlling member of that
committee, took part, al which consultation I
myself was not present, bnt one of my staff
officers was, it was contended by some of the
Republicans present that the negroes should
be advised not to go to the polls-the idea
being that if they did go they would be
slaughtered. Southworth replied that his com?
mittee would advise the negroes to vote, add?
ing : 'Let them be slaughtered; the more there
are killed the better it will be for our party.' This
spirit, I am sorry to say, but too often controls
the action and conduct of many who assume
to act in tho name and for the interest of the
Government of the United States, and who use
"the cloak of loyalty as a cover for their mis?
deeds. I havofound that men of this descrip?
tion, though willing to see the blood of others
shed at a distance, conceal themselves, with
marvellous alacrity and skill, at the approach
of any real or fancied danger. Southworth,
who wanted the negroes slaughtered at thc
polls, is a shining example of this kind, and
was actually in biding at my headquarters at
th? time he made tho remark I have quoted.''
The Herald publishes the following special:
'?In conversation a few days ago, General
Giant expressed his impression that the result
bl the late election had quieted down tho state
of feeling throughout the country-had pro?
duced a condition of sober and contented ac?
quiescence in the declared will of the majority,
and that an improved tone in the political as
well as in other relations of life will soon be
made manifest. When he mode use of the ex?
pression 'let ns have peace,' he sincerely meant
it, and he apprehended no trouble in any sec?
tion of the country under his administration,

and of all communities shall be protected and

COLUMBIA, S. C., November 2G.-Tho Board
of Trustees of the 8outh Carolina University
met last night at NickerBon'a Hotel. Governor
Scott, ex-officio president, was in the chair. On
the rig& of the Governor sat ex-Governor Orr,
Colonel T. C. Perrin, F. W. McMaster, Esq.,
Wm. F. DeSaussure, Esq., ex-Governor Man?
ning, Dr. Smythe and Colonel Frierson; on
the left sat Judge J. M. Rutland, Hon. D. T,
Corbin, President pro tem of tho Sonate, Judge
Willard, Ju 'ga H?ge, Judge Moses and R,
Tomlinson, Esq. The various reports of thc
Faculty, together with the report of the Libra?
rian and Tr.-asuror, were received and rcferrod
to a committee of dve to report at an adjourned
meeting at seven /o'clock this coning. Pro?
fessor H^sLMl's rc3ignat :cr? of thc law depart?
ment was received and also referred with th3
other papers. There are now ten professors
and fifty-eight students connected with the in?
stitution. It is no* so prospere,": as might bs
expected of a school offering superior advan?
tages to any institution of the kind m the
country. But this ia probably owing to tho
political agitations in the State, and an appie
hension that the action of the, present State
Legislature would ba adverse lo tho Universi?
ty. Tho feeling at the last session was to let. it
take care of itself, and devote whatever appro?
priations could be made for educational pur?
poses to a common school fund for the estab?
lishment of free schools throughout the State.
It is thought, however, that a email appropria?
tion of ten or twelve thousand dollars will be
made for the maintenance of tho University
another year. It is of the utmost importance
that this, the highest institution of learning ia
the State, should not be permitted to fall, es?
pecially now ffhen it is receiving patronage

The Senate is in something of a dilemma for
a presiding officer. Major Corbin, who is acting
as President pro fem., suggested yesterday that
the Senate should elect a President outside of
their body, as tho election of a member to pre?
side wouldj under tho constitution, vacate his
seat, and it was not perhaps desiraolc with the
heavy amount of business beforo them to ro
raov.- one of their working members. A reso?
lution was thereupon offered by Mr. Hayna and
agreed to fixing Wednesday for the considera?
tion of the subject, and an election if it should
be deemed advisable.
Ex-Govcrnor Orr ia on a visit here to obtain
some modifications or changes in the act regu?
lating tho manner of drawing juries. Sinoc
his arrival he has been visited by many of thc
politicians of both parties anxious to converse
with him on the subject of politics.
The message of the Governor has boen
lengthened beyond all expectation, and will
cover, with the aceompanjiog documents, about
fifty pages of printed matter. The Governor
dwells at great length on secret political organi?
zations, and cites numerous examples from
history to show the dangers to be apprehended
from such associations.
The following is a statement of the monthly
receipts and expenditures of the State Treas?

.xmined the books of tho Treasurer and Comp?
troller-General, award great credit to those
cfiicers for the neat and accurate manner io
which tho books and accounts of their depart?
ments have been kept.
The report of Mr. Leaphart, late Comptroller
General, snowe! the State debtor to the
amount of one million one hundred thousand
dollars. The report ot the present comptroller
general, after deducting the war debt, in ac?
cordance with the provisions of the constitu?
tion, makes the State a creditor to Ihe amount
of :<$g7G,750 08. Governor Orr's messago, it
w?l QB remembered, estimated the amount to
bpraised by taxatiop, to meet the expenses of
the State, at the enormous sum of one million
and fifty-seven thousand dollars. Tho esti?
mates of the preaent Comptroller-General re?

COLUMBIA, S. C. November 23, 1868.-Thc
members of the General Assembly appear to
have returned this session with a determina?
tion to go to work in earnest. This soems to
be the case more particularly with the House
of Representatives. One of their most promi?
nent members, the chairman of the Judiciary
Committee, says that he for one is anxious to
get through as soon as possible. He desires
to save tho treasury and at the same time to
save himself, for it does not pay bini to sit
here ac six dollars per day and mileage. It is
conceded on all sides that there never has been
as much work done in ono day, by the present
Legislature, as was carried through yesterday.
Tho calendar, which wa3 very heavy, was en?
tirely cleared, but notwithstanding this, on a
motion to adjourn over to Monday, the House
refused by a very decided vote.
lu the House to-day, DeLarge presented the
accounts of Dr*. T. Orango Simons and S. L.
Lockwood for post mortem examinations;
aleo tbe accounts of Dr. W. APrait and Dr. S.
B. Thompson for medicines, all of which were
referred to the Committee on Claims.

DeLarge thought the office unnecessary, and
only intended tc be established as a soft place
for some friend of the author of tho bili. He
looked only to the financial intores ts of tho
State, and argued that the creation of such an
office would entail heavy and uselo&s expense.
Tho duty, he contended, was already perform?
ed by the State solicitors. lu addition to this,
it was an interference with the duty of magis
Whipper, who introduced tho bill, replied at
some length, repelling the charge that it was
a bill gotten up foi- tho purpose of giving an y
special friends a soft ? Jae3. To show the uc
cessitv of such a measure, bc stabed he had
visited tho jails in Charleston, Georgetown and
Beaufort, and found scores of poor men confin?
ed-for minor offences, and who were kept in
jail simply be cause they had nobody to examine
jnio their cases and dischaige them, when it
could be dono with piont to the State. Many
poor men were kept in jail at heavy expense to
the State for dieting, when their cases should
have been eximiued and the parties dis?

.ARGUMENT OF MR. C. RICHARDSON MILES.
^OFFICIALLY BEPOHTED FOB THE DAILY NEWS.]
Tho Board met at ll A. M., pursuant to ad?
Present-The Mayor; Aldermen Geddings,
Potter, Cunningham, Lindstrom, Voigt, De
reef, McKinlay, Howard, Olney, Honour,
Wbilden, Cade, Marshall, Moore and Wall-15
The journal of the previous day's session
being read aud confirmed, Mr. C. R. Milos re?
sumed tbe argument in reply for thc protes?
Mr. Miles slated that he would endeavor to
condenso his remarks os muon as possible; at
tho samo time feeling the imporlance and re?
sponsibility of his position, be would not omit
to say anything necessary to tho caso on ac?
count of the consumption of time. He also
would endeavor to follow the .example set him
by the counsel on the other side, and endeavor
to argue the case dispassionately. He theu
proceeded with his argument, of which ibo
following ure "the paints:
Tho question tho board had to consider was
as to tucir jurisdiction, and he proposed to
consider, first, whence tho jurisdiction is de?
rived; second, the exlontof their authority,
and thc effect of their decision. He then cited
the act of 1868, which, he said, gave them ju?
risdiction. If, after the election has been de?
clared, any elector undertakes to disputo the
result, he docs it under tho act of 18G8, and
under the unrepealed law of the State in refer?
ence to elections, by application to the new
board. But ho contended in case tho ehction
of a majority of the candidates isdisputed.it
ia evident tbere can be no now board to hear
the case, aud in the ovent of the managers
being charged with illegal conduct, the law
don't mean that they shall sit m judgment
upon themselves. In both cases, therefore,
tho law declares that the Acting Board of Al?
dermen shall investigate the ?case, and that
was tho ground of their jurisdiction. The elec?
tors who contested this election could not go
to the new Board ot Aldermen, because their
seats were contested. Nor could they go to
the managers, because they are charged with
such illegal conduct as vitistoB the election.
The law, theroforo, directs them to so to tho
acting board, because they occup / precisely
the positi tn of the new board in case only the
seats of a minority of them were contested.
The present board, he said, held their scats by
virtue of an act of the General Assembly, and
coul 1 not bc ousted by any tribunal until their
successors had been duly elected and qualified.
Another answer to tho question of jurisdic?
tion was that the paper of the claimants, read
to tho board at the openin? of tho trial, was
an acknowledgment of tho jurisdiction, and
that tho plea to the jurisdiction carno too late.
Second. Aa to the extent of their authority:
Ho said, when they organized as an acting
Board of Aldermen their powerd and duties
were precisely similar lo thosa of the Board of
Managers in thc case of the contesting of a
Third. As to tho effect of thoir decision :
Thc law says, whou they had done what the
law had required of thom, they shall declare
tbo election, and thoir decision shall bo bind?
ing on ul) parties. It is similar to an arbitra?
tion. Tho law makes thom tho arbitrators
tho tribunal to decido this question-and tho
eff -ct is the same.
Counsel tuon alluded to thc distinction that
had boen made between the words contest and
protest. He contended that thero was no such
woid as protest; that contest was the technical
word, and the p iper was only called protest on
tba endoiesment; contest means a dispute,
protest a denial, and they aro synonymous
when applied to elections. There was ?o dis
tinctiou between tb?n\ Protest ia a remon
j atranco, addressed to a Legislature by its con?
stituents (Gushing, 435), and. in le islativo
law, ?"oes not have any reference to elections.
In the index of Bellinger's Compilation, tho
nord protest does not occur. The technical
word is always contest. A protest ii that by
means of which you contest an election.
Counsel cited A. A. 1808, Bollinger, 10G, A.
A. 1838, Bellinger, 174, A. A. 1846, Bel.inger,
178, Bhowing that to contest an election means
to dispute its validity, and that the duty of tho
tribunal thal hears tho caso ia to say whether
it is valid or invalid.
He claimed that he roprcsented not Mr. Lo
scsne or any of tho Aldermen on his ticket, but
a number of citizens, corporators and electors
of thc City of Charleston, and thoy, tho board,
had a right, though tho petitioners abandon?
ed their claims, to investigate. (Seo Gushing,
260. ) They therefore had a right to contoat
ibo wholo election as illegal, and contended
that they, the board, wero Mayor and Alder?
men, because nobody had buuu chosen and
were duly qualified to suc.:ecd then.
This beiug tho case, tho queetiun to bc de?
cided by tho board are :
First. Has thero bean auy valid election held
for Mayor and Aldermen of Charleston?
Second. If there bas been a valid election,
who has betti eleclod?
Tho ticcrnd question is not embraced in tho
argument, according to tho resolution of thc
Tho question of the val? lily of tho election
I bo contended was to be decided in two ways:
L By the process of examining tho returns
lOgotiier with too bail?la. 2. By huch other
evidence as ahall be adduced by the investiga?
tion or tho case.
The board has aire:1 Ty geno through tho
firjt process which tho taft requires. Tbu only
wiiuessca thoy have oxtminod wer.? tho mana?
gers, and this only willi n view to ena .lc them
to examine tho hallo s and returns. If at this
btage the board is satiefied that tho election is
invalid thc> may so decide. But if the board is
t-alisficd ?hat thorc wa* a valid election they
must proceed to investigate tho caso and de?
cide who his been elected. Counsel cited tho
Tihn.in Watson case, Bellinger, p. 477, which,
he contended, was a case precisely similar to
tho one now beforo tho board, and that, tho
board had tho same functions to perform as
the ?Soi ito had tu that caso. Tho counsel on
tho other sido, say tho beard have no right to
say that this election is void, but mu.-t simply
"declare the election." We conteud, aaid he,
that you do "declare the election" when you
declare it iilegul and void.
Ho ihen proceeded to examine thc following
grounds, upon which it was contended that
the election was illegal and void. Beloro pro?
ceeding, however, he contended that the act of
1868, providing for the next general election,
did not touch the Municipal election, except
that the same managers are charged with con?
ducting it. Tho kw rcgu'ating thia election,
he contended, was to bo found in the act of
1863, providing for the Municipal elections, and
in the general election law of the State, which
was not inconsistent with nor repealed by
that law. The general election act of 1868
merely providod for "tho next general elec?
tion, and the manner of conducting tho same."
When the election was over it waa therefore
deiunct, and dooi not apply to Municipal olec
tiona. except that, as a matter of convenience,
it took the same managers to conduct them.
H? considered thc election invalid became it
was not conducted in accordance with tho act
of 1868. and tho unrepealed law of thia State,
iu the following particulars:
hirst. Thc Managers of Elections wore not
qualified according to law. They were not
sworn in the manner prescribed by law. The
met o signing of names to a pap.-r was not
Hwearing in the way the law required, bc causo
it is verj doabifui whether a man could bo in?
dicted tor perjury upou such a awoarnig. Aud
the effort ol tho fact ihat some of thc mana?
gers were not sworn under thc law vitiates the
election. (Soo Appleb.vs case, Bellinger, 372,
and Edgeficld casu, ibid, 40o).
Second. Tho managers were never organized
cccordiiig to law, i. c., as a board. There
should havo been at least a majority of two
thiids of them oiganizcd to count thc voles.
Third. Registration, which the law pre?
scribed asa qualification ot voters, was not
mide in accordance with the law, because
many voters were not sworn at registration,
and no voter sigesd. that is, subscribed to tho
oath prescribed bylaw.
Tiie counsel for claimants contend that thc
omission to roqairo the vote uid not invalidate
the election, because tho oath was illegal. Mr.
Miles contended, if the oath waa legal, tlc fail
ure to administer it, admitted by the man
vitiates tbe election. If it is unconstitn
and illegal, the requiring it of voters ei
vitiates the election. Both casos h apr
therefore, so much the more is the el
void. The Board, however, was to <
whether the elec.ion was conducted in con
ity to thc act, and they must presume th
to he constitutional until the contrary is pi
This was the answer they would make
courthouse, but they preferred to meet ti
gument tully. Mr. Miles then, after corni
ing upon tho assertion at claimants' cc
that the act was a legislative blunder, ase
the proposition, that according to the la
dictated by them, if one paragraph of th
was illegal, and therefore void, the entir
was void: therefore, any election held un
Fourth. The conduct of the election wu
in accordance with the law. First. At so:
the precincts it is abundantly proved th:
poll lists were kept, and not only the i
pealed law, but tho Gencrvl Election 1
1868 requires it. It is fatal. (See Belli:
356.) Second. Managers allowed, in i
metances, unauthorized persons to assi
conducting the election, as is also abund
proved. Third. The election for Ward :
was held in Ward No. 6, out of tho limits c
ward. Thc act of 1808 expressly provides
each ward in the city shall constitute at
ono polling precinct. It makes no diffei
whether tho precinct was only across
street, or a hundred miles away; the coi
principle is the samo, and tho law bas
equally violated in both case-. Bcsidci
doing this they ma le every votor swear t
untruth, because the oath makes him s
that he resides in "this ward"-viz : thc
in which he is about to vote. Fourth,
conduct of tho election was not in accord
with ibe law, by reastin of ?ne conduct of c
persons than the managers. It has 1
proved that persons illegally appointee
Sheriff Mackey interfered with the mona
in at least ouc instanco, and this invalid
the election. In passing, counsel referrec
and commented on, tho card of Sh
Mackey, which appeared in tho papers s
days ago. a \?
Fifth. The counting of tho voles was nc
accordance with the law, because: 1. It waa
done at one pnblio place as the law din
but at fourteen different places. 2. It was
done by tho managers under oath. 9. It
not dono by a majority of the managers:
board, as the law provides. (Soo Bristi
case, Bellinger, 310.) 4. The counting was
terfered with and participated in by nnaull
ized persons, 5. It is proved that in si
cases, as in Ward No. 1, there were more
lots than voters. The managers destroyed
surplus votes under tho general election 1
We contend thoy had no right, because I
law does not apply. 6. There were, in si
cases, fewer ballots than there were vot
and that is an uncertainty that vitiates
Sixth. Ihe return of tho result of the elect
was never made, because: 1. Under the
law and tho act of 1868, thc general board c
are authorized to aggregate the result of
several precincts. This was never done.
Tho papers handed to the Mayor wore, mi
of thom, not under soak
Seventh. Tho ballots themselves were aoi
times destroyed, and in scarcely any case onie
ly preserved" and the custody accounted for
consequence of which tho board could not
that which the law requires of thom. The
struction of the ballots is tho destruction
the evidenco which th2 law requires them
take. The accidental destruction is just as fs
as if it bad boen done fraudulently, and is a
f :ct that cannot bo cured. (See Bellinger, 2
In conclusion, Mr. Miles said if the bot
came to the conclusion that enough was bef
them to satisfy tbemgthat there had been
legal aud valid election, and that no perse
had been legally elected to fill the offices

wording of their verdict, and that might

that they had riven in tho investigation of I
case, and boned they would give their verd
in such words and tvitk such reasons as woi
vindicate them before thu wkolo country, a

At tho conclusion of Mr. Miles' argumo
