Bosemon, Nash and Sparnick were declared
elected. There were six more regents to be vot?
ed for, and Wilder desired to know if nominations
wer? &Ui: in order, to which Corbin answered in
the negative. Elliott blustered a little, and ap?
pealed from the decision. Corbin refused to enter?
tain the appeal. Considerable confusion ensued.
The senators seemed to think that they were im?
posed upon, and showed a disposition to retire
from the Held, whereupon Whipper moved that
the joint assembly adjourn, which motion was
considered carried and the Senate retired, amid
It ls not probable that there will be any more
meetings in joint assembly this session. Many
of the senators swear that they will never vote
with the House again. If this spirit is kept up
the Supreme Bench will be minus a jndge and
the Lunatic Asylum six regents
AN ALLEGED TRICK.
As was predicted, the opponents of the bill re?
pealing the township act have struggled hard to
prevent its passage. Yesterday the friends of the
bill called il up to receive Its third reading, but lt
was not to be found. Considerable grumbling
ensued, and the opponents were accused of hav?
ing hid it to keep it back till Corbin's amendment
to the township act could be passed; which accu?
sation was indignantly denied. Last night Ar?
nim Introduced the following preamble and reso?
lutions, which where laid over for consideration
Whereas, A bill to repeal an act entitled "An
act to organize townships and define their pow?
ers and privileges," bas passed its third reading
in the House of Representatives and two readings
in the Senate, and being ordered to be engrossed ;
and whereas, the engrossing clerk has delivered
both bills, the orginal House and the engrossed
bill, to the Committee on Engrossed Bills, but the
chairman oftbat committee denies its acception,
Resolved, That a protestation should be made
and subscribed by the members, before Almighty
God and this honorable Senate, that neither my?
self nor any other, to my knowledge, have taken
away, or do, at this present, conceal a bill entitled
"An act to organize townships," Ac.
This morning the bill was found on the clerk's
desk, having been laid there during the sight.
The friends of the bbl, who are also opposed to
the phosphate monopoly, were determined to
have their bill considered to-day if possible, and
thus prevent the consideration of the other. They
manoeuvred so well that neither was considered.
THE TAX LEVY.
The concurrent resolution providing for the
levying of taxes to meet the expenditures rv 1870,
was taken np in the Sena'e early to-day for its
third reading. Leslie thought that Barnwell
County shotj^l have a levy of four mills on the
dollar, as a courthouse and Jail was to be built.
Donaldson moved to amend the resolution so as
to provide that only two mills on the dollar be
levied in all counties, excepting those specially
excepted. Corbin thought that amount was suf?
ficient, " especially for Charleston County, which
didn't wish to pay all, or nearly all, of the taxes,
as it had been doing heretofore.
CHARLESTON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS.
The mention of Charleston County brought
Cain up all standing, ready and willing to make
a speech, and he ?poke at length, substantially'
as follows: Two milis on the dollar will give our
commissioners $100,00?. I think they can spend
that. I believe that the more we give them the
less work they will do. Out of sight or the
steanes of Charleston, they have done little or
no work; in fact, nearly all of the work that they
have dene has been inside of the city limits,
am willing to give them another chance thou
but I want them to understand that hcreal
they will be watched with sleepless vigilance,
is true that the lone list we have against th
might now be brought up, bot, perhaps, if
pass their imperfections by, they will dobell
There has not been one bridge made In thc co
ty. $100,000 have been spent by the comn
sioners since last session, but it has been sp
inside of Charleston, to the detriment or
county. Bf thc way, thc returns or these cr
missioners ?lo not show for what the money v
spent. They show who received the money, I
not for what they received lt.
Corbin and Donaldson protested against
levying or three mills on the dollar as an outrai
arter which lt was resolved to strike ont t
word three, and substitute two; also to allow
levy of four mills on the dollar for Ilarnw
County. The resolution as amended was sent
the House, which roruscd to concur in the amet
ments, and a committee of conference was ;
pointed from each body.
THE PHOSPHATE MONOPOLY.
The presence or a large number or strange
among whom were several Charlestonians, in t
gallery or theSegate to-day, betokened that sot
question of more than usual Importance w
coming up. Yes, a question of importance w
to be brought up. lt was tho "Bill to grant
certain persons therein named the exclusive rig
to dig and mine in the beds of the navigat
streams and waters of the State of South Car
Una ror phosphate rocks and ph03phatlc d
The friends of the bill impatiently waited fi
the hour or one-the time appointed for thc co
sideral ion of the bill-and as the hands pointe
to that hour, their eyes were turned upon Co
bin, with looks which seemed to say, "now tl
thunderer will begin." Corbin "looked full i
speech," and was evidently fully prepared to li
the senators have the benefit of all the ideas I
had "crammed" on the subject. But just at th
moment the Speaker announced that the hot
had arrived for meeting in joint assembly, an
the senators went into the Heuse. When the
returned into the Senate Chamber it was 2 o'clocl
The supporters of the bill repealing the townshi
act desired to bring np their bill, but falling i
this, determined to oppose the consideration!
the phosphate bill, and made numerous motion
to postpone a consideration of it until after tb
recess. Hayne intimated that it was a wholesal
attempt to rob the State, and that several of th
senators seemed very mnch Interested In havin
its objects accomplished.
W?A,T CAIN SAID.
After every one was wearied out by the "dili
tory motions," Cain secured the floor and spok
substantially as follows: I wish to annonnc
that I am in favor of a bill which will do justic
to all parties. A bill of so much moment as this
affecting t he Interests of a whole people, certa In I,
requires the coolest consideration, hence my mc
Hon to postpone until the 25th day of January,
have no disposition to cut off discussion, bu
rather want it. I want to examine the phos
phates, the beds, the streams, how they run;
want to find out their value when pulverized
when mixed with liquids, with acids; then
want to see the results In gold and greenbacks
then I can discuss the thing fairly, and tell hov
much it is worth to the parties, to the State; how
much each ought to bc allowed-these are thi
matters that are running through my mind Uk
Ughtnlng, but I am not ready to taki
np the subject now. Possibly, my col
league may be ready; may know more abou
the matter than the rest of us. Possibly, he's run
nlng over with more reasons than Demosthenci
ever had. Possibly he has ten or twenty thous
and reasons; but I want to get these reasons to
gether, I want to collect the best evidences tc
find out all the minutia? appertaining to thc
whole matter. A question of such moment wt
should discuss understandingly. These greai
phosphates are like the gold mines of California,
possibly to be the gold mines of South Carolina,
destined to rejuvenate this State, and bring about
Buch a state of things as never was seen before.
The men engaged In it will doubtless receive
some of the benefits, but I wish the rich and
poor, the white and black, the Democrats and
Republicans, all to have a fair chance; and I
want to dlsiuss and know the whole subject, from
Dan to Beersheba. I cannot, for the h fe of me,
see why my colleague from Charleston (Corbin)
does not wish ns to take time to d'scuss this ques?
tion; he certainly will have as good an opportu?
nity when lt comes np as the rest of us. I think
some persons have intimated some offices which
I know he is anxious to wipe ont, but none
of us who know him believe these things; we all
know him to be an honest and conscientious man
tn all transactions; at the same time I do not see
why he'll not accept the opportunity, when the
question comes np, to discuss it. He is a cool,
clear-headed man, and lias thc advantage of us
In superiority of mind; then he has studied the
subject, and also knows more about the parties,
the various interests, manufactures, agriculture,
chemicals, and every other question connected
with it; he has the whole thing at his fingers'
ends. We poor fellows have got to dive down
among the stones, debris, marsh, and search out
by practical examination. My friends from
Richland and Sumter, and Chester and Marion,
can't see the thing, or can't see lt as clear as my
colleague. Why not give us poor men a chance to
discuss the question. I desire time to know what
the people want. Thc fishermen have laid aside
their smacks, the sailors abandoned their ships,
the lawyers laid aside their dusty law books, the
merchants and the men now engaged in phos?
phate workings, are all interested iu the bill.
WHAT DRBIN SAID.
About 3 o'clock Cc; bin got an opportunity to
say the following: T .e Senate seems to be actua?
ted In this matter by a most unaccountable pas?
sion-as though it was something wrong, some?
thing that ought not to be entertained. I don't
know whether it puglit to pass or not, but 1 think
it ought to be considered fairly. Those who intro?
duced this measure are anxious to see it consid?
ered, and they are entitled to consideration.
Why ls it, then, that members, without giving us
an opportunity of being heard, without knowing
what we propose to do, without understanding
or giving us an opportunity of explaining our?
selves to them, or to the country, vote to shut
our mouths, and will not allow us to be heard y
That is not the treatment one senator ex?
pects rroin another. I wish simply to say
that the pre?s and the country have chosen, and
various individuals interested have chosen, to
malign and vlllify us and say aU manner of
things against us, because we have introduced
this I ill. I do beg the senators to give me an op?
portunity of saying a word about thc bill: then ir
they want to kui it, let them so vote. But I do
want to reply to what has appeared in public
prints. After I have had my say I do not care If
the bill is postponed. H senators then say that
they waut further time to consider it, 1 will have
Arter this speech the Senate adjourned. Thc
supporters or the "Bone bill" determined to take
some action iu regard to it during thc night ses?
sion. The opposers if the bill got there In force,
and at the hour appoli.'cd Hayne called the sena?
tors to order and Wimbush to the chair. The
clerk called the roll. The Speaker announced
that there was not a quorum present, and de?
clared thc Senate adjourned.
Sheriff Mackey arrived to night, bringing live
colored persons to thc penitentiary: Isaac Miller,
three years; Louis Banks, two years; Abram
Brown, one year; Robert Lloyd, six months; Julia
Green, one year.
Sheriff Mackey also brought a petition, signed
by several hundred citizens or Charleston, pray?
ing thc "Honorable Senate and House" not to
pass thc -boue bill."
There is a petition, numerously signed, being i
circulated, praying the General Assembly to re?
peal the tax on manufactures. L. i

A Hopeless Lobby Scheme-The Mem
'phis and El Paso Railroad-Fre?
mont and Party on their Beam
A Washington letter to thc Baltimore Ga?
The Fremont party are not making muru pro?
gress here In their lobby schemes In behalf of the
Memphis and El Paso Railroad. Their past his?
tory is against them. They tia\e notoriously failed
to keep lormer pledges, and there ls no reason to
believe that thev will keep those made now. lt is
not believed that they have eil her the means or the
ability to carry out thc undertaking successfully.
There are, however, others who can and will com?
plete the road and give the South a great high?
way to thc Pacific, lt is said they will come for?
ward in good time. They will first apply to the
Texas Legislature for a oharter, that granted to
Fremont ami Company having expired, and there
being no probability of its renewal. Those In thc
Interest ot the Fremont party have taken great
pains to spread abroad the Impression that there
ls no lobby scheme, and that only a simple right
of way ls demanded from Congress. Why, then,
does the calendar for the present session contain,
among other jobs, " Senate Joint resolution, No.
9, proposed by Senator Morton," which provides
for granting the right of way to the Memphis, El
Pas? and Pacific Railroad, giving thc company
20,000 acres of the public lands r This is, how?
ever, a mere opening wedge. If the right of wav
and these 20,ooo acres of the public domain are
granted, there will be fresh demands; and no
railway ddrtng the present century.
The Franking Nuisance.
The Senate Postal Committee are In a quandary
concerning what sha.i to done about the abolish?
ment of the franking privilege.
They cannot bear to yield up this very impor?
tant franchise, so useful during campaign times,
aud yet the recommendations of the Postmaster
General are not to be despised, especially in view
of the lusty row of figures presented In his annu?
al report for deficiency. It has been proposed In
the committee to substitute an apportionment of
postage PT'.rr :'8 to each senator and member in
place ( ' UM f .nk now allowed by law. But this
meiisuie does not seem to meet the case, as lt
would only be a dodge nndcr which the expenses
of the government on this account would be per?
petuated In another form. Some recommenda?
tions must needs be made, if only for thc sake of
appearances, and the chances are about even that
thc old game will continue. But thc Postmaster
General seems determined to carry his point, and
has given orders that all free mail matter going
through the postoftlcc during thc next six months
shall bc weighed, in order that the country may
know how much v pays annually to bestow this
luxury ou its legislators.
A Speck of War.
The President has come Into collision with the
Senate. In executive session a resolution was
passed demanding of Mr. Grant all the letters, in?
dorsements, and other papers upon which he
based his nominations for Circuit Court Judges.
It is strongly suspected that his Excellency has
made several of the weaker appointments on his
own responsibility, and without auy outside
recommendation. A committee waited on the
President with thc request and met with a point
blank refusal, and an intimation that the Senate
liad better mind its own business. It is presumed
now that the august body will take vengeance by
rejecting the obnoxious appointments.
Stanton's Appointment to thc Supreme
A Washington letter o? Saturday says:
The President, accompanied by vice-President
Colfax, this afternoon called upon Hon. Edwin
M. Stanton, and stated to him that at sometime
prior to the date at which Judge Grier's resigna?
tion takes effect, he should nominate him to the
Senate for the position of Associate Justice, thus
made vacant. So far as Mr. Stanton is concerned,
this tender was unsolicited, as I believe he had
nut permitted any one to understand that he was
a candidate for the position. The President thus
?ot only gratifies lils own desire to make so lit
au appointment, but he recognizes a strong feel
lng among the ablest men of the Republican
party, who have expressed a hope to see Mr.
Mant m placed on the bench. As one gentleman
lias forcibly said, "Il is equal to a constitutional
amendment." Every Republican senator save
three, on Friday joined in an unsolicited reqnest
Tor this appointment, and yesterday a large num?
ber of the members of the House made a similar
request in a similar manner. It is understood
that Mr. Stanton signified to thc President his
acceptance of the appointment.

sand dollars. It is proposed to raise this sum by
extra effort-dividing the whole, and calling upon
each charge for its proportion. The report was

It was ordered that the money collected 1$r thc

on thc most favorable terms practicable.
Rev. W. T. Capers presented the report or thc
Sunday School Hoard. The agency is discontin?

reference to the cause of his transfer to, and sub?

He had been most kindly received by his brethren

A. A. Gilbert, of Sumter, addressed thc Confer?
ence upon thc Importance of fostering, by every
laudable effort, the interests of Wofford College.
It will certainly contribute Immensely to the vi?
tality of Methodism for such able and distinguish?
ed laymen to exhort preachers to their duty.
Rev. V. A. Sharpe protested against tire want of
interest in Wofford College on the part of the
clergy. He regarded Its success or vital Impor?
tance to thc church.
Rev. Dr. Myers had been onpaged in efforts to
revive a similar institution-Emory College ; had
done what he could for Wofford College, other
collections should bc met. but we want men
strengthened by education to bring up these col?
lections. Wc must, therefore, hold up our Insti?
tutions of learning. We are approaching a con?
flict not exceeded in severity auy that has taken
place since the day when Paul preached at Athens,
and we must hav? educated men to meet lt.
S. Boho, Esq., of Spartanburg, urged that our
ministry are not educated; we shall lose caste in
society. The graduates or Wofford College are
prepared to take position and wield an influence
upon men of learning as well as others. He met
with one of them the other day as delegate to a
district meeting as a superintendent of a Sunday
School. He thinks the ministry ought to preach
about and explain the obligation to give, ir he
wanted to get up a shout at camp-meeting, he
would take one ol these texts about giving. The
proper presentation or this class or subjects could
not rail to awaken a thrill or joy in every heart.
Rev. E. J. Meynardle called attention to the
fact that the existing government had contribu?
ted to the overthrow of the North Carolina Con?
rerence, but the circumstance had contributed to
build up Trinity College. That institution had
about one hundred and ll fly students at Its last
session, and Methodist preachers of that Confer?
ence had made that prosperity for lt. The same
state or things prevails lu this State, and Wofford
College might bc raised to the same degree of
prosperity ir we will put forth the necessary ef?

Whlttcmore and thc Press-A Bold Rob?
bery-Something About Business
?FROM ora OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
KISOSTREB, December 21.
For some time past there has been a dearth
of news in these parts, the crops having been
gathered and consequently that theme exhausted,
and there being no important events to chronicle.
The political atmosphere has been still, too, ever
since the blatant voice of thc strong-lunged Whit
temore sounded In thc ears of his dusky con?
stituents, some time since, a full account of
which appeared tn your columns. By the
way, Whlttcmore did not make much by his
attempted denunciation of thc "Star,"' for
the worthy and gentlemanly editor of that
paper, R. C. Logau, Esq., who wields a
graceful and when occasion demands lt, a injin'
i'd pen, and Is one of the very staunchest defend?
ers of sound Democratic principles, administered
to him such a castigation in his columns, as
could only be unfelt by the hide of a rhinoceros.
Such papers as Tuc NEWS and the Star arc
thorns in thc side of Whittt-more and his crew,
and, probably, obnoxious also to those who ad?
vocate a time-serving policy. Their noble and
manly efforts in the cause of justice and truth
will surely be gratefully remembered when our
good old Slate rises, Phoenix like, from the ashes
of her humiliation. God grant that the day may
not be far distant. There arc a few respectable
colored people here, who, to their honor be lt
said, hill e too much sehsc to bc taken in by Radi?
ca! clap-trap, and hohl aloof from union leagues
and all such organizations.
There was an express robbery at Salter's Sta?
tion, a few miles below here, on Saturday-a
package of money containing about live itwv.atfps
dollars having been taken from a table or desk,
while the agent had his attention directed else?
where. A detective came opto ferret out the
matter, and secured about one hundred and fifty
dollars, which was fuund lu possession of a small
negro boy. I understand he is still on Hie track,
and it is hoped that he will recover the balance.
When thc facts all come to light, they Will doubt?
less appear in the papers.
A good deal nf cotton and turpentine has been
shipped from this place and a large quantity of
timber ls now being cribbed, ready for shipment
down Black Uiver to Georgetown. The river,

With thc consent of thc Bishop of the Diocese,
I purpose, through (?oil's assistance, to reopen
this venerable Colonial Church, lt ls now sixty
years since it has been closed, and the old con?
gregation has long since scattered, but during
the past summer I have repeatedly preached In lt,
and, though my services were at night, always to
large and attentive congregations, of both white
and colored. I feel assured that there is here a
wide field for successful missionary work. The
building, a substantial brick structure, is in good
preservation, but the Interior was much injured
during the war. I need about (JIOOO) one thous?
and dollars to repair lt, enclose the graveyard,
and lit up a parochial school. The people, though
in moderate circumstances and not Episcopali?
ans, have subscribed liberally Tor these purposes,
but they cannot do all. I therefore confidently
appeal to my brcthreu of the Diocese, and especi?

^EXTRACT FROM A LETTER FROM.
SANTA CROIX.- ***** We had wan?
dered for many hours through tangled forests of
Tropical shrubs and 'rees, some of them emit?
ting a most delicious and invigorating odor,
when wc suddenly came upon a large and well
cultivated plantation, in the entre of which
were several buildings. Entering these we
found them to be the "press houses," stills, Ac,
where the sngar cane is crushed for the manufac?
ture of St. Croix Rum. Over one hundred coolies
were at work, and the smell from the fermenting
vats was very exhilarating and pleasant. We
were shown through the entire establishment,
and learned that all the Rum here produced wa?
shipped to Messrs. P. H. DRAKE A CO., New
York, to be made into their celebrated PLANTA?
TION BITTERS. The peculiar good effectsof this
Rum-which ls the purest and best in thc world"
-are well known. Not a single case of Dyspepsia r
Fever and Ague, Consumption, or any such dis?
ease can be found on this Island, (except of in?
valids come here for their health, and they are
almost always cured.) Combined with Calisaya.
Bark, Cascarilla and other Important Ingredients,
this Run. becomes PLANTATION BITTERS, and
surely no finer Tonic and general Family Remedy
was ever seen. The combination of these Bitters
was first discovered here many years ago, and alL
the natives swear by PLANTATION BITTERS,.
and say "there is nothing like it." Judging by the
robust health of the witnesses, I am certain their
testimony is true. . . . * . R. S. T.
