Stove, which, from all that we can see and

may be used with gas or kerosene, and is so
-arranged that the heat is evenly distributed
.over every part of the heated surface, which j
will remove the danger of barning, which
housewives so dread. This invention baa been
patented, and by experienced Judges, North

The Mayor said before proceeding to bUBi
? ness b e would call the attention of visitors to
an ordinance requiring: them to respect the
hall and not spit upon the carpet or deface the
The Mayor said there were sundry accounts in
the hands of t ho clerk which should be referred
Alderman V>'all said the meeting was a spe?
cial one, to he ir the report of the Committee
on Vacant Offices.
Alderman McKinlay read the report as fol?
lows, and it was received as information:
The Committee on Vacant Offices, to whom
was referred a- resolution adopted at the last
meeting of Connell, directing said c 3 m mittle
to inquire and report, without delay, as to
?hat, if any, city offices are vacant, the legal
??ere by which city officers are held, and the
power and authority of Council to remove the
incumbents of the same, beg leave to report,
that they have had the subject matter em?
braced in the resolution under consideration,
and gave it that investigation and delibera?
tion the shortness of the time '' allowed the OJ
r would permit, and herein present the result
Of the conclusion to which they bave come:
First. That there is but one vacancy, viz:
that of City Attorney, the office being made
vacant by the resignation, on the 7th instant,
bf the late incumbent, Hon. W. D. Porter.
Second. The legal tenure by which the city
offices are held are by various ordinances pass?
ed by the City Cou o eil from time to time, creat?
ing these offices and electing tue officers to fill
them in purs nance of the provisions thereby
Third. Aa to the power and authority of
Council to remove incumbents, the committee
would quote certain sections of the city ordi?
nances bearing upon the subject.
An ordinance of the City Council ratified Oc?
tober 8,1805- defining the t: me that the annual
. ejection tor officers should take!place, provides
that those elected abould bold their offices for
one year, "unless previously removed by a vote
of Council." Section Bi rt* cn of au ordinance
ratified October 10,1826, roads thus:
"From and after the passing of thu? ordinance
all and every city officer elected by the City
Council of Charleston shall be and is hereby
dec hu ed to be subject at any time, to be re?
moved from office by the vote of ee ven or more
members of Council, for such causes as ti them
shall seem sufficient, after a roll hearing af
the case. "
' Also, by an ordinance ratified October 19th,
1850. the 21st section of which reads thus: .
"From and after the passing of this ordi?
nance all and every city officer elected by the
City Council of Ch ar leaton shall be and is here?
by declared to be subject at any time to be re?
moved from office by the votes ot niue or more
members of tins Council, for euch causes as
to them snail eeem sufficient, after a full hear?
ing of the case."
I he foregoing quotations from tie city ordi?
nances, . corroborative of each other, consti?
tute ample evidence that the City Council,
trout an early period of its incorporation up?
wards, by legal enactments, reserved to itself,
th? right to vacate any or alt of the offices
created by it, ad libitum. Theoommitte, there?
fore, express the op.mon, based upon the fore
S'og sections of ordinances cited, that the
y Council possess the right and power to
remove incumbents from offioe when tney may
deem iff meet to do so. W. J. MCKUCLAI.

Alderman Barrow offered a resolution, which
waa seconded, that the eleventh rule of Coun?
cil be rescind 2d.
Alderman Geddings said that the eleventh
rule referred to steam engines, and he could
not see the ohjeot of the resolution.

The Mayor said that under Bole nineteen, a
mle could not be rescinded by less than a
Collins. Ise tond the resolution. [Laughter.]
Alderman T. J. Mackey. If a majority of
Council decide to rescind the rules, they can
do it by every principle of parliamentary law.
The Mayor decided that the resolution could
not be passed by less than a three-fourths
. Alderman T. J. Maokey. I shall be compelled
to appeal from the decision of the chair.
' Alderman Collins rose to object to Alderman
Mackey prompting Aldermen when to vote and
when to second measures.
Alderman Hampton Bald he was about to
rise and second the resolution.'
[The rule which it was desired to rescind
requires that the Mayor abail appoint the
The Mayor said that tue chair had ruled that
the resolution could not be adopte! in the face
of Bule 19.
Alderman T. J. Mackey asked if a majority
had not adopted the rule, -.j
Alderman Collina said a majority had adopt?
ed the rule, but no change ra it could be made
exoept in regular foim. This change, he said,

iena an Mackey, to appeal from the decision
t>f the chair.
The Mayor said Council had adopted the old
rules, and could not rescind thom in opposi?
tion to Bole 19.

(Alderman T. J. Maokey) was Mayor, or Mr.
Alderman T. J. Mackey said in due time he
would not ice (he insolence of the Alderman.
Alderman Cunningham requested the clerk

The clerk read the ruleB.

resolution that the rules of the old board
should be adopted, and said they were perma?
Alderman Collins. Under such an under?
standing I voted for them.
Alderman E. W. M. Maokey said tbe gentle?
men might be mistaken. He did not think '
;hey were permanently adopted.
Alderman, L. F. Wall was sure that there
,vas no such word as "permanent" there.
Alderman T. J. Mackey insisted on his ap- 1
seal, which be said bad been seconded.
Tue Mayor said the appeal must be over. 1
Alderma Barrow called the question, and 1
the appeal from the decision was put, and tho
Mayor waa not sustained. 1
Alderman Collins said he hoped the Mayor
would not yield until ho had consulted legal
Alderman T. J. Mackey said if ho could not
decide, the question would be how far bia
opinion would go. He said h9 held in his hand
% resolution in the interest of good govern?
ment against corruption, and that he would
lischarge his <1uty with all due respect to the
presiding officer. He read the resolution :
liesolce-l, That the appointments of Stand?
ing Committees announced by the Mayor on
tho 11th instant be. and the same are hereby,
annulled, and that Council do now proceed to
fleet said committees.
Aide.man T. J. Mackey said that Alderman
Potter had been chairman ot the old Committee
on Streets, and that it had been characterized
by outrageous extravagance.
Aldermen Cunningham and Holloway were
talking, and Alderman T. J. Mackey "hoped
the gentlemen would stop. Their coi.duct was
an outraa> upon decency and good order. "
Alderman Cunningham,' very much excited
and rising. There is no decency in you. I
understand yen, sir 1 ,
It seemed to be th 3 intention of Alderman
Cunningham to strike Alderman Mackey, but 1
he was held back by the crowd.
Alderman T. J. Mackey again urged his reso

Alderman Wall said the Alderman appeared
to be personal.
Alderman Mackey. Personalities are ver
damaging in this case.
Alderman Collins. I move that the gentle?
man is oat of order.
Alderman Mackey then offered the following
ordinance, which was read by the clerk:
Le it ordained by the Mayor and Aldermen
of Charleston in City Council assembled, That
this Council do proceed on next Tuesday even?
ing, the 18tb instant, at eight o'clock, to tbe
election of a City Attorney and such other city
officers whose election may legally como beforo
SEC. 2. All ordinances and parts of ordi?
nances inconsistent with this ordinance be,
and the same are hereby, repealed.
The Mayor said he was surprised at the
positions taken against him, the Mayor of
Alderman Geddings in reply to the re?
marks made by Alderman Mackey, in nfiV'. g
the ordinance, said : The Alderman is ont of

subjects. He had better advertise to deliver a
course of lectures on total depravity and orig?
Alderman Potter. He (Mackey) dont know
what he's talking about.
Alderman Mackey. I know that my shots
hit the mark by the way the targe? shakes.
Before the-Council adjourns I will name the
day when I will present articles of impeach -
ment against Mayor Pillsbury, and so get rid
of the scoundrels who have been bleeding us
Alderman Cunningham moved an adjourn?
ment. Teas 8, nays 10.
Alderman Colline. I have been called Pills?
bury's fugleman, I intend to be so. f hold
yon (looking at abe Mayor) to be as honest a
man as there is in Charleston. Certain powers
are vested in you. If the Alderman (Mackey)
does not know than, he is no lawyer. I do not
intend to he personal. If I do, worse than the
Mosaic law will be enacted.
Alderman Barrow said the Clerk had report?
ed the decision of the question.
Alderman Collins. I never knew the Clerk
could decide it.
The Mayor. I did not say, "lt is a vote."
Alderman barrow. I beard it so. The
Mayor's conduct is an open and shut game.

Alderman T. J. Mackey moved that the Hon.
C. C. Bowen be selected.
Alderman L. F. Wall seconded the motion.
He had great confidence in Mr. Bowen's wis?
dom, and respect for his veracity.
Alderman Collins opposed Bowen. Ho said
that T. J. Mackey had said that he (Colline)
was not a Republican.
Alderman T. J. Mackey. I said more than
that. I said you were a public thief.
Alderman Collins (to Mackey.) You are a
Texas highwayman aud a reuegade South Caro?
Alderman T. J. Mackey arose, when Collins
ros J also, put his hand io his breast and said
m an excited manner: "I am ready for you,
Alderman E. W. M. Mackey moved to go on
with the appointment of a temporary City At?
torney, which was agreed to, and Mr. C. C.
Bowen was appointed.
Alderman G reo: ie said he had the kindest
feelings towards the Mayor, whom he would
continue to support, but he would bear in
mind his duty to his constituents.
Alderman E. W. M. Mackey called for the se?
cond reading of the election ordinance. Alder?
man Collins objoctc-d.
At this stage, on motion of Alderman Pot?
ter, Council adjourned.
The Chamber was crowded with white men
and negroes. They enjoyed the disgraceful
scene amazingly, clapping their bands and
stamping their feet whenever anything spicy
was said. No attempt was made to keep the
crowd io order, and the rowdies in Council
and out ot it bad everything their own way.
One thing is certain. A bind of wild Indians
and ring-tailed mon kies* could have behaved
no worse than the "Honorable Board of Alder?
men" of Charleston.
IMPORTANT RAJLBOAD MOVEMENT.-A meet?
ing of tbe City Council of Aueusta was held
on Thursday, for the purpose of considering ?
tho steps to be taken to complete the Macon
and Augusta Railroad. Judge King, of the
Georgia Railroad being present, urged the
necessity of prompt action. He said tho road
was making nothing now, having, no emu cc- ]
tiou; but that when completed to Macon it
would become profitable. He estimated tbe ?
cost of grading at $300,000, including bridges,
aud the whole eos* of completing at $000,000.
Alderman Gardner tackled Judge King with
roteren ;e to the charge that the City Council
was responsible for the mismanagement of ibo
Macon Road, and gave Jndgo King what tho 1
Constitutionalist calls "a decidedly vigorous
excoriation." A motion was adopted that tho 1
offer of Hull, Shorrnan & Co., to complete tho
road, will not be accepted; ?ind a motion was
adopted that Judge King bj no: ?fled that Coun?
cil will approve tho issue ot $500,000 in bunds
by tho Macon and Augusta R ulroad, to bc cn

Georgia Kaili oad, the City Council cf Augusta
