Tax CATERPILLAR OX THE RAMPAGE.-Re?
cent visitors to James' Island assert that the
caterpillar is making sad havoc with the cot*
ton. Unformed bolla are badly eaten, and tb?
prospects for a good crop, which were bright a
few days since, are now blighted. A similar
unfavorable report is received from Wadmalaw
Island, where the worm is represented as rap?
idly destroying all prospects for a ?tU crop.
THE NXW TAX BELL.-We learn that the Tax
bill, for the year 1870, is being hammered into
shape, and will be presented to Council for its
consideration about the last of November.
The framers of the bili propose to lessen the
tax upon real estate, and to heavily tax every?
thing connected with railroads, also gambling
. booses and brothels. Tbey claim that by this
method the city will be able to raise from taxes
next year $1,000,000-#290.000 more than will
be raised thia year.
THAT RADICAL CONSTABLE.-Theodore F.
Bu neb, of whose "assault and battery, with j
intent to kill," apon Mrs. Henry Dose ber, THE j
NEWS of yesterday made mention, was re-ar?
rested yesterday and committed to jail.
His lathe bad promised on Saturday to fur?
nish, the 1500 security required, and Magis?
trate Mackey released bim, folly believing that
the security would be produced. Yesterday
morning Dr. Badzinsky, who bas been attend?
ing M-^tf. Doscher since the assault made upon
ber, certified that there were bruises on
her arms and knees, and that she had re?
ceived internal injuries whioh are of serious
character. IQ consideration of this fact, and
also that the security wa? not forthcoming.
Magistrate Mackey ordered Bunch to bo re?
arrested, which was done, and he was told that
he would have to furnish $1000 security for his
appearance for trial or go to jail. Failing to
give the security, he was committed cs above
staled. Bunch denies that he struck Mre.

paragon of excellence, and then go home to

Not since the beginning of the war has the
South been blessed with a more prosperous
crop than in this A. D. 1869. The caterpillar
bas this year caused a good deal more alarm
(han injury, and the great staple commands
prices which ought to satisfy any reasonable
planter that Providence is on his side, and
that Pope was telling the truth when he wrote,
"Whatever is, is right I '* The critical moment
has passed, and the business man already fore?
sees the wealth about to pour through the
alni ces of trade into the remotest corners of
the South. Importations have accordingly
b&en extensive; the shelves and counters of
our meicbants, nay the very sidewalks, groan
beneath their weight of merchandise, and the
early bird? who desire te catch the worm, have
begun to arrive in our city by scores. QooJ
bargains sod tbe pick of an assortment are nu?
ques t ion ably to be had how. Take A turn
AB0U1?D THE WHARVES.
From Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York
the steamers all come deeply loaded. The
printed freight lists have suddenly grown from
two to six inches in length. Thero are
packages marked to almost every merchant in
the oity. The docks are piled with boxes, bar?
rels, crates, agricultural implements and ma?
chinery, and the pursers report still more
awaiting transportation. The stevedores are
busy from morning until night, and the stroets
leading to and-from the wharves present a
panoramic array of drays which oddly enough
remind you of a procession of ants, industri?
ously making their rounds. Here, among
these active scenes-on the dock, in the steam?
ers* hold, among the clerks with their invoice
booka, among the noisy mules and draymen
you probably have a fair criterion of the
amount ol business being done in the city at
"The car rattles o'er tho stony street" with
jar incessant. Goods going up, oottou coming
down. Floor is piled on the sidewalk in pyra?
mids; while hogsheads of molasses and eng r
await with sweet complacency their transfer to
the cavernous depths of the storerooms. Port?
ers, now "on their muscle," are making all
possible arrangements of merchandise, through
which, in striving to reaoh the counting room,
yon turn and twist and circumambulate until
lost in a labyrinth worse than a map of Boston.
Individuals, tufted with cotton, dart across
the street ftom the wharves, where they have
been "sampling" bales, to sample something
else, t. e., ice-water with some sugar and a
spoon in it. Sturdy looking merohants from
the interior are pricing, baying, arguing, and
feeling the market.
The dray interest is in & state of mingled
confusion,.excitement sod delight. There is
more oottou to go to the wharves and more
merchandise to go to the depots than anybody
.an remember to have seen before, so early in
the season; and the mules are made aware of
the fact with a vigor sod energy that might
afford a subject for the seal of any number
of societies for the suppression of cruelty to
animals. In short, from one end of the Bay
to the other, thcte ia bustle, bustle, bustle
the melody of trade. Stop at
THE COTTON PRESSES
On your w?y ap town, aud you will seo more
of it. Bude, uncouth bags of cotton by the
score are arriving every few moments. They
are ecarcoly off tho dray before a dozen dusky
hands setze and tranfers each one by turu to tho
gieat iron jaws of tho press. There is a pull
at a lever-a sudden sigh, and you almost ex?
pect to hear a shriek from the King Cotton as
his sides are crunched and bis liberty is cur?
tailed from three feet to one and a half. In
less time than it takes to write it, iron ties are
passel around the epitome of his former self,
and thus, "cribbed, cabined and confined," he
is rolled out into tbe world te take his chances
among the mysteries or my ladyi bed-cham?
ber, or to ron a brief cart er among the shift?
less Hottentots. Sich is life !
MEETINO AMD HAIME FTBIBT8.
Here is tho drummer's paradise. It wouldn't
be safe to estimate how many hundreds of
thousands of dollars worth of goods of every
description invite buyers to leave eight drafts
in the localities above named. The sum would
be simply immense. Aud they are bnsy as
bees there, also. A loafer has no more chance
ol holding a chair aown five minutes in one of
these establishments, with the hope that some?
body will entertain or invite him over the way
to take his forty drops of red hot glory, than
he has of being struck by skeet lightning. But
let a gentleman from the country oome in-an
individoal who has the bobing look on bim-let
bim drop ever so alight an intimation that he
dont feel very well, and that he always corea
it with a little "corn juice," or that this ie a
dreadful climate for the heartburn, aod the
water don't agree with him-let such a one
make his appearance, and h: will create a rip?
ple-yea, an effervescence throughout the en?
tire institution. Every individual therein,
from the youth who sweeps out the store to
the sedate bookkeeper, will immediately feel it
incumbent upon himself to spend, if necessary,
his bottom dollar in alleviating the misery of
the aforesaid customer, and thereby preserve
bim as a respectable member of society and a
patron of that house.
Whatever you want in any Une of trade you
will find in this locality, and within the limits
of a biscuit throw. Dry goods, boots and
shoes, clothing, hardware, groceries, drugs,
carriages, agricultural implements, crockery,
hats, tinware, leather, millinery goods, books
and stationary-everything indeed, that hu?
manity need to eat, drink, wear, walk on or
ride in, except a hearse and coffin, are to be
found here, and at prices the most tempting.
Goods arrivo and depart almost hourly. Boxes
block the side walks, and junior clerks, poe in
hand, are taking ebirographic Uberties in tur?
pentine and lamp black with the names of
customers from North Carolina, South Caro?
line, Georgia, Alabama and Florida. Charles?
ton enjoys a lively trade from all these States.
Midnight finds moat of these establishments
still open, and under the blaze of the gas lights,
a cohort of workers may bo seen engaged in
packing goods, opening fresh arrivals, or
cleaning away the wreck of tho day's battle. In
one establishment we wot of, seventeen thous?
and dollars worth of goods were ono day last
week sold before twelve o'clock M. Elsewhere,
although it is but tho beginning of the season,
one, two, five thousand dollars are not un?
common results ot a few hours work. General
good bumor prevails among those who handle
the3o funds, aod even tho chronic grumblers
are bound to admit that tho prospects were
never more cheerful or en:ouracing. Step now
The registers of both the Charleston and
PaviUon show a goodly array of names. There

gossip by heart; can tell you to a dot what
"they say;" narrates a capital story, and has
the rare faculty of determining where enter?

his bottled hospitality when he finds the
needle pointing in that direction on the
moral compass of his guest; and generous

mising costomer in hand, he proceeds scienti?
fically to apply bis galvanic poles to every vul?
nerable part, until at last, the pocket nerve is
touched and tho magnetic circuit is complete.
His country cousin goes home satisfied that
John Smith is a perfect brick, the best, the
noblest and the most generous specimen of
mankind he over encountered. He has had a
good time in tho "City by the Sea," his stock
has been replenished at the lowest cost prices,
and ho has made a staunch friend, by whom
he can swear for better or for worse.
Of late, however, oqr merchants have added
another pulley to their machinery of trade.
Instead of employing one or two active mea to
btg the miscellaneous mass of buyers who
come to Charleston, they secure the services of

TEX POLICE BELL -The Police bill bas been
discussed aa J discussed aatil almost erery
oueia tired of hearing it mentioned. It will
be brought up at the meeting of Council to
j night, and we sincerely trust that the police
force will be "reorganized," as some want it,
or the supportera of the biU be so thoroughly
disorganized by a defeat that they will nerer
recover sufficiently ta reorganize themselves
aod make another fight orerit.
So mach for aa iatroductioa; aowfor some
facta which will be presented for tho conside?
ration of the Aldermen to-night. The present
force costs $67,732 per annum, divided as fol?
lows: Captain, $1500; two Ueutenants, at $1200
each, $2100; two sergeants, at $800 each, $1600;
four roundsmoo, at $600 each, $2400; sixty-five
day meu, at $720 each, $46,800; thirty-eieht
Dight men, at $330 each, $11.400; two hostlers,
at $600 each, $1200; three horses, $432 per an?
num. Total, $67,732.
Tho Policy bill, as amended, prorides that
there shall bc a captain with a salary of $1500;
two lieutenants, at $1200 each, $2400; two ser?
geants, at $720 each. $1440; twelve roundsmen,
at $600 each, $7200; seventy-six privates, at
$480 each, $36 480; two hostlers, at $480 oath,
$960; three horsod, at $432 per annum. Total,
A comparison of the abavo statements will
show that tue* Dight force will, under the
amended bill, bo done away with, and thc cost
wiU be $17.320 less per annum than the present
cost of the force. In the above statements the
door men and steeple men, whose salaries foot
up two thousand seven hundred dollars per
annum, are not included. There will be tho
same number of this class of men kept on the
force if it be "reorganized."
We think that in this effort to reduce the ex?
pense of the force, very little thought has been
exercised ia regard to the privates, %bo are
dependent entirely upon their salaries for a
livilihood. Four hundred aod eighty dollars
per &nnam is not sufficient for a Bingle
man to lire upon muoh less a married man
with a family, and we believe that a majority
of the members are ii the latter predicament.
The polio? force is as good as can be expected
under the existing circumstances, and all
efforts to "reorganize*' it, i. e., to make it a poli,
tical machine, will certainly not result in any
benefit to it whatever,

Aldoroan David Barrow, white, who made
such a fool of himself on last Friday, by

new role yesterday afternoon, by going on a

the United States and would see that they were
While reeling about East Bay, near the Cus?
tomhouse, about half-past three o'clock, he
observe! a pile of coooanuts in front of the
house of Messrs. Paul, Welch A Brandes.
These cocoanuts had been consigned to
Messrs. Enslow A Co., from whom this firm
bad purchased them. Each of these cocoa
nuts did not present a stamp, aa the fuddled
brain of the Alderman, who is also an ap?
praiser at the Customhouse, imagined they
should, and be walked into the store and
insolently asserted to Mr. S. E. Welch that the
duty had not been paid on them.
Mr. Welch was of course indignant, and told
tho appraiser that he did not recognize him at
all in the matter; that the duty had been
paid, as he could ascertain by inquiring of
Messrs. Enslow A Co., or of the United States
Customhouse officer, then on board of the ves?
sel discharging the cargo.
Barrow continued tu assert that the duty
had not been paid, and Mr. Welch ordered him
out of the store. He refused to go, and Mr.
Welch was upon the point of kicking him out,
but seeing a policeman passing he told him to
take the befuddled individual away. The
policeman took hold of Barrow by the arm and
carried him offa short distance from tho store
and released him.
Mr. Welch then went to the Guardhouse to
enter charges against Barrow for drunkenness
and unlawful trespass. He was advised, if he
intended to prosecute, to prefer charges be?
fore a magistrate. There was no great desire
evinced to enter the ckargos, and Mr. Welch
left and did not go to a magistrate; but we
hope he will prefer charges to-day. ?-If Mr.
Welch had kicked the Alderman out of the
store, be would have taught bim a lesson of
deoency, and justly punished him for his un?
warrantable conduct. Our citizens cannot pre?
vent the Aldermen from making fools of them?
selves in the Council chamber; but when these
functionaries cannot restrain their propensi?
ties upon the streets and thus interfere
with the rights of the citizens, they should be
made to behave, os far as possible, like civil?

THE FINE ABTS.-While other branches of
business in our city are putting on the best
face possible lo meet the exigencies of the
brisk fall season that is opening so suspicion s

mined that visitors and strangers shall find
that Charleston is lacking in none of the latest

FINANCIAL.- Attention is invited to the card
of Mr. Edward Lowndes, broker, which will
be found in another part of to-day's paper.
IF ANT ONE is so blind as to believe that the
fall trade of Charleston has not opened in earn?
est, let him turn what is left of his eyesight to
the advertisement of Mr. Wm. Matthiessen, in
another department of this paper. He will see
there a catalogue ot excellencies an long as his
arm; figures tbat never lie, and promises tbat
never disappoint. Temptations will appear
thick aa thc leaves in Vallambrosi, and be can
be "sacked" or "suited" to bis heart's content
at prices that will scarcely pkim the cream off ]
his pocketbook. In short, Mr. Matthieseen,
with hts usual enterprise, always up to time,
opeus a stock of fall and winter clothing, fancy
artie'es, ic., for gentlemen's wear, that has
not been excelled in many a day.
LIGHT READING FOR THE WARM WEATHER.
Our friends in the country who desire to obtain
light reading for the warm weather, at strictly
popular prices, are referred to the advertise?
ment of Mr. C. C. Righter, the very enterpris?
ing and trustworthy King-stroet dealer in books
and periodicals of all kinds. His list will be
found to include something to suit every taste,
and it seems to us a marvel how he can afford
to send bis books by mail over the country,
post-paid, at the ridiculously low prices named.
