the train, but it was too late, and Ibo cow?
catcher struck just between tbe wagon aDd
the .horses, separating them instanter, and
consigning oacb to a place on opposite sides
of the track, little or none tho worse for the
collision. Trio man and his wife (each about
sixty-five) were caught oa tho platform above
the cowcatcher, and just in front of tho
engino. Instead of loosing prc3er.ee of

selves composedly as though nothing had

raised in the othor, assumed a jockt y attitude,
and thus tho old couple rode up to the station
triumphant, amid the cheers of thc bystanders.
As soon as thc train stopped, a number rushed
to their assistance; bull they dechned all aid,
manifesting no concern for themse ves, but
considerable for tho fate of the horses and

[FROM 0CB OWN CORRESPONDENT. J
COLUMBIA, S. C., February C.-Tho new pro?
gramme for the settlement of 'thc Charleston
election case was brought up iu the Senate to?
day, lt appears to meet with considerable
favor, as shown by the refusal of tho Senato to
-lay tho bill on the table, a motion for which
was made by Senator Hoyt, of Colleton. Tho
propositiou is to order a new election. The
suggestion was first thrown out by Senator
Leslie, in thc debate on this subject last Thurs?
day, as a sort of ompro uise. Senator Cain,
wbo also appears desirous of a compromise,
acted in accordance with tho suggestion, and
has introduced the following :
A BILL TO E.VABLE THE CITIZENS OF CHARLESTON

Jackson inlroduccd iuto tho House, to?

peals tho third section cf ?.he act which vali?
dates tho special oidor of General Cunby. The
effect of thc passage of the bill would bo lo
declare the Mayoralty and Aldermanic Board of
Charleston vacant, ibis summary mode of
ouster is meant tobe antecedent to the seating
of Mr. Pillsbury by the passage of Scnitor
Proceedings of Thursday.
COLUMBIA, S. C., February 4.- Tr-. SENATE
'to-day waa crowded with visitors in expecta?
tion of hearing the discussion cn the Charles?
ton election Some little preliminary
business was transacted, and at 1 P. M.-tho
special order, being the bill to confirm and de?
clare valid tho recnt election of Mayor and
Aldermen of the City of Charleston, was '-ail?
Mr. Leslie moved that the special order bo
discharged and mado tho special ordor for
Tuesday next, at 1 P. M.
Mr. Aile:1 rose to oppose the motion of the
senator from Barnwell. Ho said ho was un?
willing to bc treated any loncer with tho utter
contempt exhibited by the Acting Mayor and
Aldermen of th? City of Charleston, in their
regard for the laws n?ssed by tho General As?
sembly. Ho said that if the gentlemen of the
Letrislature were willing to be trr.iKri!ed upon
by those men, theo the bill BhouM be postpon?
ed; but if they tutend to assert rbeir ricrhts as
legislators, they would bring tb . matter to au !
issue at once and decide Lt promptly.
Maxwell hoped tho morion to l.ostpone would
not prevail, as repeated (UVlissiona of the'
same subject were inj uri nu* t.- 'no interests of
tho State. Ho hoped it stur? :s were not in
favor of the bill they woul'" -io1 vote to post?
pone its consideration.
Nash said he remombered I'jzb some years
aso, in 18?? ho believed, Robert Barnwell said,
cu o certain occasion in tho Congress of tho
United States, if soruo bid passed ho was gointr
home to tell the people ot South Carolina tb
put their houses in order, not to die but to
Now he was willing to give the Democrats
all that bouestlv belonired to them; but he
would soy that .'.ben a Republican is eic ted
to office in this State, he wanted the lawyers,
whet er on Broad-streot iu Charleston, or
Lady-stroet in Columbia, to know that that
Republican was going to hold his office.
Mr. Allen. Did not the lawyers aud press of
Charleston and tho Dcmoctats of that city de?
clare in advance, that they wojld not abide by
tho election, if Mr. Pillsbury was successful V *
Nash said that be did see some such advice
in tho papers. But he would say that if Re?
publican senators on this floor wero going to
dodge this question from one time to another,
be would say to these senators from Charles?
ton, when they leave these halls, to go home
and tell their people to put their house in or?
der, not to live W. to die.
Ho wanted tho 8enato to understand this,
tint when a Republican was elected to any
office in this State, as taras his (Nash's) vote
was concerned, and as far as his vote could do
it, be was willing to bring the whole power of
the State to bc:u, to force the people to receive
aud acknowledge that man as au officer ot thc
Tho Republicans of Charleston elected their
man by twenty-two majority. In tho City of
C'jlumbia. tho Democrats t-eitus by thirty-two
votes. Wo submitted, and if there ever was an
election w?ero the greatest frauds wore perpe?
tra tod it was in this City of Columbia. Lut thc
Republicans were defeate i and they yielded.
Money, in Charleston, has prevailed, "ami
doubtless has corrupted some of Ute Republi?
cans there. A majority of the acting Ald.r
mca are said to be Republicans, yet they are so
tenacious office that they waut to Lol-i on
and not yield to tboso they know to bo duly
elected. Every three numbs gives the acting
May or orer a thousand dollars sui ny, and bo
can take that salary lo fhtbl Mr. Pillsbury with
in the cocrls. He (Nash) was not willing to
leave it to tho courts or to any other person.
What are the rights ol the propio iu this mat?
ter ? Ho was not willing to leavo the question
of tho right8of thc citizens of tho Stales tu
the courts, judges, or any particular indi?
vidual. The people of Richland sent him there
to represent them on this floor, and if ho had
the power by bis vote to protect them in their
rights, ho intended to do it without nny regard
to the Supreme Court, District Court or any
other court. He wanted KO seo the liepublicau
senators hero act ?ts the Republican senators
did in Washington, wheu a Republican Mayor
and Al'I erm an w ere elected, and the Democrats
world not give them their offices. Congress
legislated the Republicans into Their posi?
tion.' If Mr. Pillsbury and his Aldermen
have been elcctod, as shown by the highest
number,of votes, be wanted them put into
office if it required the Governor to cull out the
whole force ot thu State tor that purpose.
It appears that every i?epubhcan elected to
office has to fight his way into that office.
Here in Richland they elected a Cleri
Court, and be had to so to ths courts, 'the '.
islarure elected a Register o? Mesno Convoya
and he is now in court striving to obtain
session of that office. Even Tim. Hurley
not been allowed to take his position as C
ner of Charleston County. Mr. Whiting <
all the business of that office. I supposo
has been intimidated, and is afraid lo applj
his office. [Laughter from Tim, wjio waa
ting at the table of a senator.] Perhaps
could not raise five hundred dollars to b
his case before tho Supreme Court, and th<
might take more than that. [Tim, solto r
"My Democratic friends would raise a 1
di ed thousand dollars for me.'' Great laugh!
Nash. I believe we should deal with
matter at once.
He knew senators on this floor bad mad?
their minds how they wero going to vote
the bill. Some, bo believed, weu'd vote aga
it at all hazards. The Senator from Barn?
for instance, could not be convinced to
other course when ho has made up bis m
to vote. He would vote'every time as be vc
on the first ballot. He knew there wai BUC
thing as senators oppoeing any measure
cause presented by a certain other sena
But, for himself, he would say that if a m
sure was presented bv even thc most viol
Democrat in South Carolina, if it was for
benefit of the people of the State ho (
speaker) would not oppose such a meaai
Tins is a matter which bc believed to be
lifo of his party, the Republican party
Charleston, lt depends upou it.
Bo not only favored tho measure because
believed it to be rigbt, but be favored it a
party measure. He was willing and road)
moot the issue, and be believod all the friei
of the bill were roady to meet it to-day. ]
us, he said, commence now. "I know and I
we are going to spend a day or two in disc
sion and argument. There will be, no dou
all sort of subterfuge used to prcvont tho p
sage of thc act, and tho friends of thc bill n
have to adopt thoso moans to keep it fr
being deleated. Why not go oa ?" He hop
it would not be postponed.
Swails. I Lave to compliment the sena
from Richland. For tho last week wo ha
been discussing a matter very similar to I
motion now before the Senate (motion to po
pono consid?ration of bill increasing judg
salines).-, i am glad tosco that tho sena
I rom Richland has como over to virtue 's si<
I am opposed to postponement unless it can
shown wc are not ready to meet tho queatii
But I believe thero is not a senator on tl
floor but what has had this matter before hi
They have had tho reports, tull reporta, in t
ncwapapoia of Charleston, aud every man bc
bas made up his mind how he will vote on tl
bill, and is as ready to vote on it now as
will be five days or live months hence. Tbci
fore, unless tho senator from Barnwell can gi
mo good reasons for the proposed postpoii
mont, I shall certainly vote against his m
Mr. Corbin. I am exceedingly anxious th
thia matter should be disposed of at one
People outside as well as in tho Senate, ha
been very busy in thia matter. For my OT
part, I would like to kuow to-day, whether t
Republican party bas any existence or n<
whether tho law is to be onforced, or wlietb
uionoy influence aud big names -to to rule co
trary to principle, lo law, and to justice,
would like to have that question settled. 11
not like to bc dragged into the merits oft
question until the bill is fairly ?md squarely b
loro the Senate Howover, it is common"on
motion to postpone, to eay whatever one fei
about tho bill and about the necessity for i
consideration at once. As a reason why
should bc so considered, I would say that it
a bill of the greatest importance, lt is n
the pecuniary importance of the offices
Mayor aud Aldermen of the City of Churlcsto
not tho mero onjoyment for a day or a seasi
of those offices. It'is nat tho nicrocinolumen
ot tho offices, but thc heaven-born pri
ciples of ourown constitution und laws. The
ho at tho foundation of this matter. Ai
whenever a vital matter of our constitute
and laws comes up, it should command and a
rest tho attention of every lover ofilia countr
of law, order and justice. Aud those aro tl
principles that have been assailed violontl,
shamelessly assailed by a act cf men, a fe
men in Ibo City of Charleston. Will tho Gen
ral Assembly, when such is the fact, allow sue
a shameless, tyrannical abuae of position
1 believe not. When such a question arises, tl
Senate should act at once, arrest nil ita labor
and apply the remedy. These aro m
feelings on tho subject. I am ready to aho
to the Senate that the bill is wise, just, leg;
and right. If I fail to show any candid ma
these things, tbon I ask any candid man I
vote against the bill. If I do not show on lb:
floor that this bil) is simply a bill to enfor:
the laws of the State as promulgated in tb
acta of this General Assembly, then I ask sci
atora to volo against it. Oil the other hand,
I am able to ahow that it ia a vindicatio
of our acts, of the constitution, a vindicatio
ot ourselves a? a political body and reprcsei
tativo government, then vote for it. li'I ni
not able to show that all these things arc ii
volved and meet in this question, then vot
against tbe bill. But if I do show them, thet
in God's namo, I ask every man to vote fo
Mr. Loalie. After thc eloquent and affectin,
words ot the author of thia bill, said ju so eic
quent and appealing a manner, a man must b
very hard-hearted to resiBt. But I am govern
od by what little brains I possess iiiaload o
any soft words tho smooth, oily longuo cf i
senator may choose to indulg : in. Hud th
senator seen tit to say thal when thia bi!
pa&.:?8 Mr. Pillsbury and his Aldermen will bi
seated in their seats and ull business befon
the courts stopped, bo might, perhaps, havi
convinced some a! thu senators that there wai
a pressing necessity for thc passage of tho hill
Docs the senator believe that the passage o
this bill will so.it Mr. Pillsbury or any of lit:
Aldermen? Daes he behove il. If he does HOI
belicvo it, why such unsee inly basti:? un woinlv
because it is tuc most important b li presented
in the Senate. I called the attention ot sena?
tors to tins bill when ii was Introduced by thc
senator from Cha-kvtun. Ile wanted to put il
upon its second reading then and there, and
made just such a speech why it should bo read,
Theory was of party ; he appealed for the Re?
publican party. That is all in thc world in it.
There is uot ? senator upon tho floor can show
that if thia bill passes Mr. Pillsbury will bc
any nearer bis scat than bc is to-day. Why
this haste ? I will tell you.
Sumo people think whenever they start to do
a thing it should and ought to bc dono at
once, lt anybody secs tit to c .cstioti their
rigbt, they ride over them roughs J. I sim?
ply asked him this morning in a reasonable,
gentlemanly way who wrote the petition of the
citizens of Charleston he presented. He re?
plied in his iron voico : *'That'd no ae of your
business. " Me did uot do it after the exact
style ol footrest or some ol' the other c?l?br?t d
actors, but ho did it tho best way he com...
He did it purposely.
Now, why did not the senator from Charles?
ton show that Mr. Pillsbury will get his soat
if thc bill .passes ? Talk about party in thia
body. You cannot do it hore. Tho senators
are governed by reason. Show to them that
Mr. Pillsbury will get his aeat by tho passage
of the bill and it will bc carried. I am oppos?
ed to thia bill, becausa it will not givo Mr.
Pillsbuiy his seat; but if any one says i am op?
posed to any measure that will bring this mat?
ter to a speedy und final settlement, he ?latea
wi at he is not authorized to state. I do not
believe the Ima ol' South Carolina should bc
(lolled. T'hoio is a law upon tho s'aluto bo >k
that makes it a high crime for any man hold?
ing office under the provisional government to
continue to hold I hat office after il li.s ben
uctuauded of him by a newly elected officer.
Tho senator from Charleston would make this
Senate believe thu! we bad not enacted un?
laws in the pjsc, and that no action could
be taken until thia bill wus passed.
Tho senator ironi Charleston report od the
bill at the last session, which became an act,
and made it a penal o?bnee for Mr. Clark lu
bold office one day against Mr. Pillsbury. Why
is nol that act enforced ? When you get this
bill, how much bettor off will the case be for
Mr. Pillsbury? He (tho Bona tur) does not at-'
tempt to tell us. He comes in herc aud wants
to make us volo for it, mid if we do not, they
propose wo should g > homo and die. When bc
shows me il is a reasonable bill, that it will ac?
complish the purposes intended, I will vote for
it. But I challenge the senator norn Richland,
tho senator from Charleston, or thc senator
from Greenville, to show that Mr. Pillsbori
can get his seat by Ibe passage of tnis bill. I
nm not opposed to tho legitimate exoresuion ol
the will ol' thc peiple of Charleston being heard
in this election. It'auy thinks so they ?ne mis?
taken. I have tried fer the last twuortbrei
dj.vs to obtain the military order appointing
Afr. Clarie to office. J Hero tho speaker roan
Now, I have a plan ti bout this bosicesa and I
th:nk ray plan better than this bill. I mink il
can bc matured in a short lime. I have stated
ifc to several within the last few dave. Now, I
say that you can legislate Mr. Pills?ury in. but
if yon don't legislate Mr. Clark ont you don't
give Mr. Pillsbury his seat. Mr. Clark defies
you. It is said an amendment will be made to
the bill in tbo shape of an ejeci njeut clause. If
I was a lawyer and disposed togo to law, and I
was satisfied that my client and his friends
had any money to spend, I would be perfectly
willing and thank God if this bill passed. If I
dad not havj law for the next five years, it
would simply be because I did not want it. You
may pass this law with an ejectment clausj,
but how easy it is* to obtain an order from the
Circuit Court restraining the sheriff and his
deputies from intermeddling ra any manner
with Mr. Clark and his Aldermen until the
question be determined in tho courts. Tho
matter comes up before Judge Carpenter. If
he decides in favor of Mr. Pillsbury, au appeal
to ihe Suprema Court is forthwith" taken. If
you want to reach this question at once, re?
voke theotder appointing Mr. Clark. I askfor
fi vo days' time. I believe this whole matter
eau be compromised. I want to see the will
of the peoplo of Charleston respec ed. I Wi?
derstand the objection is not to Pillsbury, but J
to some four or five of the aldermon. By re?
voking General Canby's order, we declare tho
office vacant. If we do this, we take Mr. Clark
out of his office, and no man will take his name
to auy paper after he has been legislated ont
Karney. Do we not legislate Colonel Giillard
into office ? Will he not claim it under the
law authorizing him to hold over until hts suc?
cessor hos qualified ?
Mr. Loshe. Mr. Gaillard, by this military
order, waa absolutely roraovod. Legislato Mr.
Clark out a?d Mr. Pillsbury takes his seat.
Cain. Colonel Gaillard is disqualified by tho
Barney. I am in favor of having the bil)
postponed if a bill more effective in its natura
can bs matured. If thero is any bill that has
boen brought beforo this body which 1 regret,
it is this bill to validate tho clestion in tho
City of Charleston. I have considered that tho
course tho bill is now pursuing before the
courts is tie proper one.
ilr. Corbin. I will say to the senator from
Georgetown, that thero is no case now before
thc courts, und that statement in the remon?
strance of the citizens of Charlcstou agai ist
the b.ll is falso, absolutely false.
Mr. Rainey. If there is no case boforo the
courts, 1 would ltko to ask the senator if all
possible means for thc decision of tbis ques?
tion ly the Judiciary department has boen
Mr. Corbin. They have not been exhausted,
and thc majority report shows why they have
uot been exiiausted.
Cam hoped the Senate would not have boen
troubled with this gravo question. Atter the
lon?, wearisome trials through which it bad
passed, it was to bo hoped that the decision of
tho courts would be final, and that depart m cr. t
of tho government-the legitimate part for set
hug such questions-would havj been reserved
in rho discussion of this whole case, or elso
another method would havo been adopted, that
is, to refer this back to tho people.
Here tho speaker commenced to discuss thc
merits of thc bi.!, when he was called to order
and look his scat, saying that, wh -n thc bill
came up ho would be* ready to moet them at
Maxwell. I was opposed to the postpone?
ment ot this bill. I d j not like to say anytbing
that would wound tho fjolings of any member
of thc General Assembly of the State of South
Carolina. But I do say emphatically that I re?
gard tho postponement a virtual defeat of tho
bill. I know thero are four thousand dollars
in circulation for the defeat of this measure.
My eye* havo soon it. I know parties have been
on tho floor of this Senate, parties opposed to
tho bill in every shape, mumer and form, and
havo been endeavoring to coerce members of
thc Senate to their will. I say it without fear of
successful contradiction. I am iu favor of the
passage of tho bill or of tho passage of any
other Dill, the purport nf which is to seat Mr.
Pillsbury and tho Aldermen ?loct in office. I
am in favor of putting Mi . V;l!sbury in if wo
have to tlo it with the whole power of thc State,
or with the point of tho baroma. I ask, if tho
will of thc pjoplo of Charleston is to bo disre?
garded. I* hope wo shall have uo clique or
party movement hero by which wo shall orase
tho ?amo of any mau from the bill. If the
senator from Barnwell will pledge himself to
support tho bill when it comes up, I will agir?
to tho postpouomont for the purpose of per?
fecting thc measure.
Nash followed in reply.
The question was finally taken on postponing
tho bill, and was utianiaiously decided in the
offitmative witt, an agr?ment that there would
be no filibustering wheu the bill comos up for
The consideration of ibo bill was then post?
poned to Tuesday, February 9th, at 1 P. M.

?THE INCLEMENT SEASON, AND ITS
effects on Ibo weak and feeble. The drafts which
searching cold makes upon the vital powers ol the
debilitated and delicate are not leBS severe than the
drain upon their strength caused by excessive heat.
The vast dispirity between tho temperature of
over-healed rooms and offices, at this season, and
the frigid; tr ol the outer air i * a fruitful source of
sickness. To fortify the body against thc evil
consequences of tho sudden alternations of beat
amt cold referred to, the vital orgmization should
bc strengthened and endowed with extra resistant
p wer by the use of a wholesome invigorant; and, of 1
all preparations for this purpose (whether embraced
in the reg jlar pharmacopoeia, or advertised in tho
publie jonruals), there is none that will compnre
in purity and excellence with HOSTETTEB'S
Si OMACH BITTERS. Acting directly upon the
organ which converts the food into the fud of life,
the preparation imparts te it a tone and vigor which
is communicated to every fibre of tbs frame. The
digestivo fanction being accelerated by Its tonio
operation, tho liver regulated by its anti-bilious
properties, and the waste matter of the system car?
ried off punctually by its mild aperient action, the
whele organlzufrn will necessarily be in the best
possible condition le meat tba shoeks of winter and
the sudden changes of temperature. The weak and
sensitive, esp dally, cannot encounter th ase vicissi?
tudes with safety, unless their leader systems are
strengthened and braced by artificial means. Every
liquor sold as a staple ut mule is adulterated, and,
were it otherwise, m :.. . !cohol is simply a tempo?
rary exelttat, which, whi n its first effects have sub?
sided, leaves the phy i ol power J (and the mind as
well), in a worse condition than before. HOSTET
TEB'S BITTERS, oa ?he ether hand, contains the
essentid properties of the mest valuable tonie and
alterative roots, barks and herbs, and their active
principal is the millo west, least sxci ting and most
