A 'S ?sp SANITARIUM FOR AIKEN.-Dr. P. G.
Rockwell, a physician of Waterbury, Genn., and
former Mayor of that place, has recently visited
Aiken, S. C., In company with Mr. B. P. Chatfield,
a master builder, to make^ arrangements for
building a sanitarium for invalids, under a char?
ter granted by the Legislature. The plan under
consideration is a large main building, surround?
ed by thirty handsome cottages, each divided into
sections. The topography or Aiken, where there
are not more than two or three houses on a block,
renders the proposed plan quite feasable. Dr.
Rockwell has attained considerable eminence in
Jits profession, and has always been successful in
?bis treatment of pulmonary complaints.

HUI, Floren oe,Sum ter, Newberry and Orangeburg,
and his efforts have been attended with marked
success. He goes out bearing orders for several
hundred Swedish laborers,and with well-grounded
-expectations of being able, at an early day, to
greatly enlarge his scale of operations. Mean?
time persons in the country desirous of obtain?
ing white labor may address Mr. R. IaserteL No.
47 Broad street, who is the resident agent in
Charleston of Mr. Ferlow's enterprise, and from
whom all needful information may be obtained.
THE JfciLscTic.-The January number of this
magazine is Ailed with interesting matter, select?
ed from the most highly esteemed English period?
icals. The editor Bays:
With the present number the Eclectic enters
upon a new volume and a new year, and while
the editor feels that the best pledge he can give
for the future, ls a reference to the past, he also
feels Justified in expressing his belief that the
coming volumes will be more valuable, more in?
teresting, and more adequately representative of
the best aspects of contemporary European
thought than any in the long series of the past.
English periodical literature is every year becom?
ing more comprehensive and more cosmopolitan
in Its character-lt is gradually drawing to its
ranks the best intellect of the nation-and with
this vast field, and those of France and Germany,
thc Eiectlc has the current literatures of three
countries from which to make its selections.
Our table of contents his month must speak for
itself, as we have space only to call attention to
tbe leading article on the Early History of Man.
This ls a rare paper, which has attracted much
attention in England, and discusses very lucidly
one of the most Important problems that at the
present time are occupying the attention of scien?
CORPO?ATIONS AND STATE TAXATION.-The
Baltimore Gazette gives the fellowing report of
the decision of the Supreme Court of the United
States upon the power of States to tax corpora?
tions previously exempted from State taxation.
The decision appears to wholly cover the case of
thai South Carolina Railroad Company, and to
determine that its property cannot be taxed by
In the Supreme Court to-day. Nos. 293 and 294,
the Washington University, plaintiff in error, vs.
Rouse, and Home of the Friendless vs. same, in
error to the Snpreme Court or Missouri. The
plaintiffs in error are public institutions of the
city of St Louts, and by the acts or Incorpora?
tion thejfcegislature exempted them from State j
taxation. This was in 1853, out thc Constitntlon
ol the State, adopted in 1885, authorizes the Leg?
islature to Impose taxes upon such institutions,
and the exemption was accordingly repealed,
and the collector of tee city, the d?fendu ut In
error, proceeded to levy the same tax upon them
as upon other property.
An Injunction was obtained by thc corporation
in the Circuit Court for the county, but the Su
perlor Court of the State reversed the Judgment
of the Circuit Court, holding that the provisions
of their charters as to exemption did not consti?
tute a contract between the stat? and the cor?
porations which subsequent Legislatures were
bound to respect. Tue opinion of this court was
now delivered by Mr. Justice Davis, holding sub?
stantially that as the Constitution of the State
existing at the date of the acts of Incorpora?
tion contained ne restrictions upon the Legis?
lature in respect of such exemptions, thc acts
were valid, and the consideration involved In the
-establishing of the institutions created a contract
between the State aud the parties undertaking lt,
in respect of the franchises granted, which was
beyond the reach or the Legislature to
repeal, or of the people to repudiate,
"by a change in their constitution, ue
consideration beyond the public objects for
which these corperatlous were created being ne?
cessary as the basis sf a contract. This view, it ia
said, ls sustained by the settled law. Jadgmeat
was reversed and causes remanded. Mr. Justice
Miller, on behalf of the Chief Justice, Mr. Justice
Field and himself, read a dissenting opluion,
holding that lt was beyond the power er any Leg?
islature to forever exempt from taxation, and
that to assert the contrary was to hold that this
agent of the people may bargain away and de?
stroy the very interests it was elected to protect.
If lt be conceded that the Legislature bas the
power to exempt from taxation forever one class
of property, it follows that it may exempt all
property, and thus deprive the State of the steans
for the sapport or its government, er lt may
throw fae whole burden upon those who are too
poor, or too honest, to purchase Immunity. It ls
expressed as the belier or the dissenting justices
that the mislaid down in the cplmlsa or the
coori must, in the end, he receded ..'rom.
DIRECTIONS TO RUTERS.
A Chance for Dyspeptics.
It is an incontrovertible fact that there is no
beverage more invigorating than malt liquors,
and Mr. James Cosgrove is prepared to furnish,
at his establishment on Market street, the best
brands, either foreign or domestic. His wagons
are constantly plying, and families can receive
their supplies promptly.
A Perfect Charmer.
There is no cantatrice that can equal the sweet
no tes of the canary, and those who wish to enjoy
the pleasures of a home concert should call at
once at No. 195 King street.
A Well-spent Day.
Such has been the observation of every visitor
to Kinsman's. They went to purchase Christmas
presents, and found everything that was requis?
ite to make a home happy; for Kinsman, like a
skilful general, masses bis forces and has a gene?
ral assortment of toys, gifts, sweetmeats and
confectionery. His prices are moderate, his
stock extensive, and the money spent in his es?
tablishment is a willing tribute to the merits of
one who understands so well the art of catering
to the public. Greenbacks cannot be exchanged
to more substantial joys at a better advantage
than at Kinsman Brothers, on King street, and
there are crowds who can sustain this assertion.
MeafTS. Kltnck, Wlckenbcrg & Co.
Must have used A!?.?i'u's lamp to conjure np the
array of choice beverages that are presented to
the*Selectlon of the public this morning. The
heart of every Bacchanalian will rejoice at the
glorious array of o?d masters that is portrayed,
while the more sedate lover of good cheer will
lose no time in ordering a bounteous supply to
crown his Christmas board. That happy event
is near at hand, and the prescriptions furnished by
Messrs. Klinck, Wickenberg A Co. will enable all
who apply to indulge in the good cheer that ls in?
separable from the occasion.
The Fm it* of thc Earth.
Messrs. Kinsman A Howell and Wm. Roach k

Messrs Laurey A Alexander offer to-day a full
line of bacon, hams, sides, shoulders, Ac, besides
other choice groceries.
The praise of this sparkling beverage that cheers
bnt not intoxicates has been sounded forages,
but those who wish to test the troth of the legend,
can find the best specimens of Rhenish vintage at
Mr. J. M. Martin's, No. 35 Market street.
FOR THE HOLIDAYS.-Cheap chromos, fme
photographs, handsome pictnre frames, a large
stock of albums-cheaper than the cheapest. At
C. C. Righter's, No. 181 King street.
TUE CONFEDERATE WIDOWS' HOME.-This
deserving institution has been recently made the
recipient of some costly and valuable gifts from
the friends of the movement in Baltimore and
elsewhere. Among the number were a handsome
and ingenious skating rink from the Monumental
City, besides a variety er articles that would be
admirably adapted for Christmas gifts. Those
who would like to contribute their mite to the
support of the institution, will not neglect this op?
portunity to secure a good present.
THE ACADEMY OF MUSIC-The bad weather
prevented a large attendance of ladies at the
Academy or Music last night, bat " Blow for
Blow " was played by the excellent company
with unflagging spirit. Miss Alexander, as Lady
Linden, was graceful in manner and pointed m
expression. This* lady improves every day, and
gives evidence occasionally of a dramatic vigor
too frequently lacking when she first trod thc
boards. Mr. O'Neil, usually a tender lover, came
out last night as "The Villain," John Drummond,
and seemed even more at heme as the stage ras?
cal than as the comedy gallant. Lost, but not
least, Miss Eldridge acted with her customary
To-night we have "The Streets of New York,"
which ls "fal! of vivid fun and eqnal to a visit to
the great city." Among the scenes there isa
Wall street ban ki n g- house, a view of Union Square,
the Washington statue, a snow storm, the Five
Points, and a house on fire.
This ls one of best sensational plays of the pe?
riod, and should draw a thumping bouse.

THE CBRISTMAS PLATS.-The comedy com?

effects. In this play, the acting of Mr. Parker, as
the glpsey, is perfect. On Tuesday, "Caste" was
brought out, and displayed the capacity of the
company to great advantage. Miss Eldridge was
bright, sparkling and painstaking, and Misa Alex
der played with a tenderness and graceful calm,
broken by bursts of emotion, which charmed the
audience and compelled their applause. Mr.
O'NeU and Mr. Wood oontirmed the favorable
impressions they had made on the previous night,
