The following report of a special
committee was presented:
To 7iis lin,,',,'the "Mayor and Aldermen
of flo- Cit./ ,f Columbia.
GENTLEMEN: The special commit?
tee who was appointed by your ho?
norable body to act in connection
with ;i committee of firemen, for the
purpose of extending the hospitalities
of the city to the committee of fire?
men from Now York, would respect?
fully report: That they have dis?
charged the linty assigned them, and
have carried ont, tts near as circum?
stances would permit, the programme
as given yon at a former meeting.
Your committee are proud to say that
their efforts have met not only with
the approbation of the firemen of the
city, but al&o that of our guests. We
trust that these acts of kindness and
hospitality .narks the new era in the
history of our common country, und
l will be the means of subduing the
k elements ol strife and disorder which
$ at present distract the two sections.
lt is ?i matter of regret that our cha?
ritable neighbors from New York
were not permitted the pleasure of
presenting those substantial proofs ol
their kindness and sympathy, yet we
feel proud cd' the sentiments which
prompted them to leave their com?
fortable homes to mingle their sym?
pathies with ours, in the midst of our
ashes of desolation; and we look for?
ward to a day, not far distant, when
they will be permitted again to min?
gle with us, and furnish those evi?
dences of their regard which were
denied thom on this occasion.
Your c<fcmitt?H have done every?
thing in ^ir power to be as eco
nomica? .-.s possible, commensurate
with the important charge committed
to them, "mil notwithstanding their
efforts, thej have been nimble to
keep within the appropriation made
by you for this purpose.
By reference to the annexed state?
ment, you will perceive that the ex?
penses ol' the committee have excell?
ed the appropriation of ?300 made
by your body, to the amount of
$74.75, and as your committee have
endeavored to carry out your ideas
in extending the hospitalities id' thc
city to these friends, and the amount
being small, your committee would
respectfully ask a further appropria?
tion of 87-1.75, to enable them to dis?
charge the habilitier; of the commit
tee. Respectfully submitted.
The above report of the specia
committee was received and adopted
The following resolutions were of
fered and adopted:
Ry Alderman Walter:
Resolved, That the Committee oi
Streets be authorized to inquire upoi
what terms they can settle with Pal

The Lynchburg (Va.) Rep?blica
says that "a Federal officer belong
ing to the garrison of this plac<
was met, a few days ago, while ridin
about the suburbs, by a rusty lool
ing specimen, who came forwar
and offered to 'surrender.' Th
officer asked it' he had killed nut
body, or done any mischief of an
kind. The specimen said he ha
deserted the Confederate army i
18G1, but had heard of Gen. Lee
amnesty proclamation while hidin
about in the mountains, and ha
come forward to give himself nj
and be returned to service, (ire:
surprise and consternation seize
upon the specimen when he learnt
that there was now no Souther
army, no Si mt horn cause, and th;
all the battle-flags had been foldc
and put aside. The specimen Wi
treated to a dose of amnesty oa1

LIFE IN OHIO.-Things seem to be
improving in Ohio. The following
appears in the papers from that di?
rection :
In "Mansfield, Ohio, on tho evening
of the 6th instant, a public meeting
was held, and a vigilance committee
organized, for the purpose of ridding
the place ol' a swarm of lior.se thieves,
: pickpockets and plunderers of every
j grade, who have hoon preying upon
tho community, and who have; suc?
ceeded in evading punishment at the
I hands of the courts. A number of
arrests were promptly made, and on
? the 7th, at another meeting, the
j scoundrels were brought and exhibit
] ed to the citizens, after having their
j photographs taken in the rogues'
j gallery. Afterwards, seven of them
were escorted to tho depot, and com?
pelled to depart on the train, with
the assurance of hanging if they
should return. The citizens resolved
, to sustain tho regulators, and notice
? has been given to all oilier disreputa
! ble characters lo leave at once. A
j proclamation has been issued, warn
! ing persons against harboring or
I abetting this class of people, as thc
committee will not hesitate to deed
1 with them as they deserve,
, the iirst objects hoped to be accoin
' pl ?shed by the recent military recon
! structiou bill, is a division of the peo?
ple of the .South into parties in
\ relation to il. The New York Even?
ing Post thus states the case:
'.Thc movements for r?construc
\ tion under thc Act of Congress will
I produce ono very much needed re?
sult-they will divide tho Southern
\ people into parties once moro. There
\ mast henceforth be two political
. parlies tin rc, as there arc and always
have been in tho Northern States:
and by means of the negro vote.
1 these two parties will bc in every
; State so nearly balanced in strength
, that each will have to respect thc
i other's rights, and each \vi~j be able
to insist upon its own rights. Tins
; once done, the Southern States must
j inevitably and quickly advance in
j liberal sentiments and in love of
? country-for it needs only free dis
i cussion-thorough discussion-to en?
able the people everywhere to soc tho
right, to recognize their best inte?
rests, and to lead thom to evist away
thc false leaders whose stupid blun?
ders and criminal ambition brought
such ruin upon the Southern States."
Generals Fullerton and Hairline
("Miles O'Reilly) were before thc Ju?
diciary Committee on Saturday, in
obedience to subpoenas. The former
was examined as to the restoration of
property to the Southern rebels and
his official action in connection with
the Freedmen's Bureau. He will be
further interrogated on "Monday.
Private Miles O'Reilly was overhauled
about his "talk with the President"
and his account of Presidential views
on repudiation. Thc "boy," says the
Herald, had his back up, and gave
answers not required nor relished by
thc Committee. This Testimony was
altogether in favor of the President,
aud repudiated the soft impeachment
of repudiation. If he had caused
thc impression that Mr. Johnson
favored repudiation, all he could say
i was that he had been unfortunate in
j the use of language, and Unit nothing
j was farther from his intention.
I WATEK MARKS.-Nearly every bujsi
i ness place in town has now upon or
I in it a mark showing the height to
j which the waters came during the
recent Hood. Wc give a few of them.
In the post office, corner Market and
! Fifth streets, the water was live feet
eight inches above the door. In the
lower story of the American Union
office, between Seventh and Eighth
I streets, there was seven feet eight
! inches water. In thc Union Piis
! sengor Depot, the water was ten feet
I six inches deep. It was eleven feet
i?cep in 'ne Southern Express Office
and in thc dining room of the Crutch
field House if was eleven feet seven
linches. Mr. Elijah Thurman made a
j water mark showing the height of
the flood of 1.S-A7, and another of the
late Hood, and says the last was fifteen
feet six inches higher than in 18-17.

i that the means of protecting and restoring ?
