MEETING OF COUNCIL.
Alderman Geddings and the Remarks
Attributed to H im-The Police BRI
Connell Pats tts Foot I'pon it.
A regular meeting of the City Council was
held last night, at which were present the
Major, Alderman Geddings, Voigt, T. J.
Mackey,Barrow, Potter, Cunningham, Collins,
white; Brown, McKinlay, Thorne, Hampton,
Small, Holloway, Howard, L. F. and E. P.
Wall.
At h alf-past eight o'clock Council was called
(o order.
The minutos of the last regular and also of
the extra moe tin g were read.
THE ajtSUBXS OT AXiTEBJCAK OKDDiyO?.
In the. official report of the proceedings
of Council wars the remarks of Alderman
1 Geddings, relative to the election of an inspec?
tor-general of timber sud tomber. They con?
cruded as follows: "He therefore'desired Conn?
el not tb proceed with tmneoessary and im?
proper haste, but to sot dobhorat??y and like
mes, sud not like juveniles, Uko boys. ' And be
was confident no detriment would acorn? lo
the lumber business bj tbe delay proposed."
As soon as the clerk had finished reading
these remarks of Alderman Geddings. Alder?
man T. J. Mackey srose and said he noticed sn
error in the proceedings, also something
novel-a speech of an Alderman reported in
full-something which had never been done be .
fore except by a special order of Council. In
this speech of the Alderman is some language
wbioh he did not use. He says ia that report
he said, "Like juveniles, like boys," while.it is
in my recollection, in the recollection of the re?
porters, and also in the recollection of several
of the Aldermen, and others who were pres?
ent, that he said, "Like Jews or boys." I think
it proper that I should notico this error in the
proceedings, as I intend, at the proper time,
to report a resolution censuring the language.
I do not question the intention of Alderman
Geddings lo say "juveniles," but I must say
that there will be an error in the minutes if
they are confirmed as they read.
Alderman Voigt said he heard the remarks
of Alderman Geddings, and he said "Like ju ve?
nues, like boys."
Alderman Collins, who w 3 called upon by
Alderman Mackey to testily^ arose to speak,
when Alderman Voigt jumped up, and in an
excited manner moved that the minutes be
confirmed.
Alderman Mackey sa;d he hoped Alderman
Voigt would keep his temper and be as cool as
a December day while this discussion was go?
ing on, as be (Mackey) intended to dissect the
matter.
Alderman Mackey theo proceeded to state
again that he understood Alderman G. to?say
Jews or boys: that he might have intended to
say juveniles, when he was interrupted by that
Alderman, who asserted tiathe Said juveniles,
pronouncing it as if spelt juvenilis, and stat?
ing that it was the correct prononciation of tbe
word.
Alderman Mackey gare way for Alderman
Collins, who stated that he understood Alder?
man Geddings to say ' Jews or boys," but did
not believe that the Alderman had intended to
insult the Hebrew race; that he was perfectly
willing to believe that Alderman Geddings had
intended to say as ne asserted he did say,
"like juveniles, like boje." He bad too mach
confidence in the manliness of the Alderman
to believe that be woola deny using any lan?
guage he had used.
Alderman Mackey paid a high compliment
to the Hebrew race generally, and to the re?
presentatives of it residing in the city especial
! ly, and said that he had not brought up the
sobjeot from any personal motives, but thought
thai ss the remark had been mads in Connoil
meeting, and had been greatly talked of by
the Hebrews of the city, who considered it an
insult, Council should take notice of it, and,
j therefore, had acted af he dtd-Ttf ter explaining
j that there was rele vane j in the remarks, ( which
Alderman Geddings bad domed,) he sat down.
Alderman Voigt called for the yeas and nsjs
upon the question of ooD?rmmgthe min?tes.
Alderman MdOkoysaid he didcot think this
would settle the qaeeitotr, wberher or not Al?
derman G. bad mrfe tbe remarks attributed
I to him by some Of the Aldermen, He {Ma?
kayr^vonnf voto lor the confirm a tl?? of the
rnOJO/es because oe wau willing .to accept th?
ARttsman? interpretation of hisTsmarks.
Tho minutes were then put to a rete and
confirmed.
Alderman Geddings then srose and said that
he had come to this city thirteen years ago,
and hod been well treated by the Jews from
I that time to tba.present, and ho teas proud to
claim som? of them as his friends. ' I certainly
could not hare boen guilty Of making such a
remark M has beerr attributed to me; badi,
I would have bowed my.head sod accepted any
censure that might hare beau beato ved. I
could not hate held up my beadtn ttte streets,
had I made such 1 remark. I am certain I
did not uso the words; as the majority of the
Aldermen understood me to say what I intend?
ed to say, it ir to be presumed that the others
misunderstood me. [Alderman Geddings spoke
in quito a low tone of roue last night, and it
was with difficulty his remarks could be caught,
but we believe the above to be substantially
what he said-RZPOBZKB.]

Alderman E. P. Wall, colored, wanted to

Alderman Mackey. Vee, it caa; any mem?
ber can introduce a bill. There is no power in
the Council to put the gag law here.
Alderman E. P. Wall, colored, moved to ad?
journ.
Alderman Mackey (who was speaking.) That
motion is not tn order. No motion is in order
while an Alderman is speaking. Such motioos
may be in order at the customhouse, but not
here, rWall is an inspector st the custom?
house J
After some further m itions (during which
Alderman Mackey sarcastically complimented
Alderman E. P. Wall, colored, upon bis
knowledge of parliamentary rules,) Alder?
man Mackey stated that the bill he now
proposed to offer was different entiroiy from
the one offered by bim previously, and was
changed not because it was objectionable
ble to bim, but because he was aware
that the Alderman had entered into a combi?
nation todefeat the bill, and be had therefore
so modified lt that he thought il would now be
acceptable to all members. He thea called
for the first reading of the amended bili.
The bill was then read for the first time.
It, as amended, provides that there se one
second-lieutenant, two sergeants, and eighty
two privates; and that the chief'i pay shall re?
main the same.
Alderman E. P. Wall, colored, immediately
after the bill was read, moved to adjourn.
Carried.
Council then adjourned.
EXTRA MEETING os THE CHAMBER OF COM?
MERCE.-At au extra meeting of the Chamber
of Commerce, held last evening at the Hiber?
nian Hall, First vice-President S. Y. Tupper in
the chair, the following report was read and
adopted :
2b the Chamber of Commerce, Charleston:
?ENTLEMKN-i'he undersigned, your com?
mit tee appointed at a meeting of the Chamber
on Mar 31st, to take into consideration certain
subjects connected with the sale of cotton in
this''city, beg to report that they have,
caa nilly examined into the subject of the loss
of weight on cotton weighed in this and ship?
ped to other ports. For this purpose they
bate carefully weighed several bales cf cotton
upon the lower Market public scales, and find
they are entirely unfitted tor this purpose, the
same bale varying several pounds at different
trials. Tbey would, therefore, report adverse?
ly to the employment of loree stationary scales
of that character. They further weighed these
same bales on all of tbe scales now used by tho
wharves for that purpose, sod found no mate?
rial variation between the different scales.
They have been forced to tbe conclusion that
the scale now ia use is tbe best that
they can recommend. The more so
that there is the same complaint of
loss on ootton shipped from New Orleans,
where the beam scale is employed. They at?
tribute tbe loee of weight complained of to
have been caused principally by drying in the
bolds of the steamers, as cotton shinped by
sail generally bolds out in weight. Your oom
oMttee heartily endorse the recommendation
with regard to the more careful packing and
baling of cotton by our planters, feeling as?
sure i that it would be very much to their in?
terest as a protection from stealing.
As the sellers of cotton have taken up the
subject of insurance, storage and the time for
delivery of cotton after sale, and as tbs pros?
pects are favorable to s satisfactory adjust,
meut of these points, we would recommend
that we should await the result of their action
in this matter.
Upon examination of the through rates of
freight per railroad, as compared with the
local ratee, we are satisfied that st pr?sent
no discrimiuaton is made wbioh can ma?
terially affect the interests of our mar?
ket, and we further believe that the
direction of our several hues of railroad will
always be glad to oo-operftte with this Chamber
to the extent of their means in any ooaree
whioh may ba?e for its object the building ap
of the trade of our city.
All of whioh is reepaotfully submitted.

THE INSPECTION OP LUMBER.
An Important Point.
EDISTO RIVER, September 1.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
I see from your valuable journal that an office
of inspector-general of timber and lumber has
recently been created m the City of Charleston.
Your paper being considered the expositor of
tbe wrongs inflicted upon the people by the
present officials in power, with your pernfris
sioD, in behalf of those interested io getting
timber and lumber, I should lite to inquire,
through its columns, if, in the face of an act
of the Legislature of this Stale, the City Coun?
cil can create such an office? The act referred
to was passed by the L?gislature in December,
1854, entitled an act "to provide for the mea?
suring of tin ber in the City of Charleston,and
to or?ate the office of inspector and surveyor
thereof." Section II of said sot provides that
"the City Council or Charleston shall elect,
annually, one or more inspectors and surveyors
of timber;" no further authority is delegated
to the City Conned, nor bas any other Council,
before this, assumed such authority. Section
Ul goes on to prescribe the duties and fees of
the measurers. This section was amended in
December, 1856, by an act reducing the fees of
the measurers to eight cents per thousand feet,
the prico now paid. Section Y makes any vio?
lation of the act a misdemeanor, and fixes a
penalty for the same "of not exceeding two
hundred dollars."
I understand that another infringement of
this act has been made by the pf??sage ot an
ordinance preecribing a very rigid and unjust
measurement of timber (which ordinance you
will confer a favor on a number of your coun?
try readers by giving an insertion in your
paper,) allowing much higher fees than those
prescribed by the laws of the State. It is quite
probable that the Council was not aware tbat
there was 6nch an act of the State on the sta?
tutes at large; therefore, will you please bring
the facts prominently before tbe public, that
the Attorney-General of the 8tate may see that
the laws thereof are not superseded by an or?
dinance of the City Conned ?
The enforcement of an unjust measurement
can but operate injuriously to the City of
Charleston, in causing much of the timber
from this tiver to go to Savannah, where,
though the route is more tedious, the prices
are much more remunerative; in fact, a good
deal of our finest timber has to seek that mar?
ket now on account of the low prices for such
timber iu Charleston. JDSTTTIA.
Tbe ordinance referred to by our correspon?
dent is as follows :
AN OR DEN ANCE TO CREATE THE OFFICE OF IN?

TUE DEID INFANT.-THE NEWS has already
mentioned that Coronor Whiting had held an
inquest upon tho body of a white infant, found
dead in a cellar of a house on Coming, between
Wentworth and Beaufaia streets. Yesterday,
the investigation was concluded. The parent
proved that the child was still-born, and that he

ARRIVAL OF THE STEAMSHIP MANHATTAN.
This fine ship of the Adger line of New Tork
steamships reached her wharf last evening,
having arrived off the port some hours previ?
ously. The Manhattan brings a large and
heavy freight list, every portion of the ship
being crowded, with considerable cargo on
deck. She also has a number of passengers,
among them some of our fellow-citizens who
have returned after o business trip to the
North. The weather experienoed was very
rough, a heavy Bea prevailing for much of the
passage, and consequently somewhat extend?
ing the usually very quick time of this favorite
steamer._
CRUMBS.-The drunk and disorderly citizens
contributed $13 in funds to the city treasury
yesterday.
The city sheriff is now making up a list ol
tbe delinquent taxpayers.
Yesterday Officer Levy arrested Officer Coates
for violating tho ordinance relative to "drum?
ming" without a license, his recent acts in Lau
rensville being the main ground for the arrest.
S. B. Wright bas been appointed department
collector of internal revenue for the counties ol
Barnwell, Colleton and Beaufort.
Tbe Hibernian ?Society enjoyed tbeir usual
monthly reunion last night, and at the dose ol
the business meeting an invitation was extend?
ed to the Chamber of Commerce to unite with
them in tbe festivities of tho occasion. It ic
hardly necessary to state that it was accepted
without a dissenting voice.
A large number of nogro laborers pass?e
through the oily, tt is presumed lo work on th<
Brunswick Ev. I road.
THE CITY HAND ENOTNISS.-THE NEWS bae
mentioned that tho Prudence and the United
fire companies, colored, were successful in tbe
dtawing for tho two city hand engines not in
the possession of fifo companies. The presi?
dents of these two companies applied to Chiei
Engineer Nathan for the engines, but be re
fused to give them authority to take them, or
the ground that he was not empowered to dc
80. The presidents retired, and shortly a'toi
th* Clnof received a letter from tue Mayor in?
structing him to tam the engines ovor to the
companies. Enclosed io the letter was a copy ol
the lately adopted ordiuacca to make certain
colored fire companies a part of the Fire De?
partment. The Chief wrote to the Mayor that
he could not comply with the instructions,
giving the same reason that he gave to the
presidents of the companies; also, stating that,
in his opinion, the Boird of Firomasters only
bad power to dis po ie of the engines. He re?
quested an interview with the Mayor, and on
Monday, accompanied by the chairman and
first vice-chairman of the Board, oalled upon
bim. After a pleasant interview, tbe Mayor
o msc rited to have the whole matter referred to
tbe Board of Firomastors, which, at their next
meeting, will most probably order the engines
to be given to tho companies.

zealous and efficient members, serving well and
faithfully in every position, from that of pri?
vate to the highest office in the gift of tbe com?
pany, and who besides had drawn around
him, by his geniality and kindliness of man?
ner, a circle of friends, embracing every mem?
ber of our company during the entire per iou of
his connection with us, has as it were in the
twinkling o?an eye, passed from time to eter?
nity. Memory will not soon cease to recall
the many pleasing recollections of onr depart?
ed brother fireman, whose wit and repartee
were only ress a.utc and ready than bis warm
heart to sympathize witb tho dist reseed, and
friendly bond to relieve; and though saddened
by bii death, we shall ever cherish these re
collections as mementoes of his virtues; there?

has lost one of its most devoted, zealous and
efficient members, who bas served os long and
ably in every capacity, from the lowest to the

bis family in their affliction, and feel that,
while tbey mourn the breaking of the nearer
