gibo B??uqo, tm t-Jodgo TVieltori having
adjourned the Court-tho Court House.
janbeth ted, . Tbe beli? of tbeEpis
cdpal abd Presbyterian Churches were
tolled during tho morning, arid at 12
e^??t?s, by order of Mayor Alexander,
the city bell proclaimed to the people
tho general lose, which had been sus?
tained. At half-paat ll o'clock, the
meeting waa called to order by Col. A.
O. Haskell, who u tated that the Obj cot
was for the parp?se of paying a proper
tribute of respect to the memory of Gen.
Robert E. Lee,; and proposed that Gen.
Wade Hampton take the i chair, which
was unanimously adopted. John D.
Caldwell, Esq.,. waa appointed secretary.
Gen. Hampton] then addressed the
meeting: ? ..

gether . to-day t by . on. d announce ment
which will oouse profound sorrow
throughout tho civilized World, and
Which comes to us bearing tho additional
grief of a persbh?l and priv?t? bereave?
ment. Tho 'foremost map ol all the
world is no more; ' and as that news is
carried by tho speed of lightning through
every town "and village and hamlet of
this land which he Moved bo well, and
amongst those poo pin'who lo ved and
honored and venerated him Gdprofouud
ly, every trae heart in the ht ricken South
will feel that. thV\??^u)?ti'y,lw lost ita
pride nud glory, and tht>t tue citizeus of
that country have; lost a father. I dare
not venturo to.speaks of him as I feel.
Nor do we cont? f?1 ?jerifogiee bim. Not
only wherever the Eoglish language is
spoken, , but/wherever civilization ex?
tends, tho sorrow-a part, at least, of the
sorrow we feel-will be. felt,, and more
eloquent tongue's than mino will tell
the fame -and 'recount tbe virtues off
Robert E. Loo. Wo need .not come tb'
praise him. We comet only to express
onr sympathy, oar grief, ' oar bereave?
ment; \Vo come not to mourn bim, for
' wo know that it is well with him. We
come only to extend our sympathy to
those who are bereaved.
Now that he is fallen, I may mention
what I have never Bpoken of before, to
show you not only what were the feel?
ings that actuated him in the duty to
which his beloved countrymen called
him, bat What noble sentiments inspired
him, when he saw the cause for which he
had been fighting so long about to per?
ish. Jost before the surrender, after a
night devoted to the most arduous da
ties, as one of . his staff came in to soo
him in the morning, he found him worn
and weary and disheartened; and the
General .said to him: "How easily I
could get rid of this and be at rest. I
have only to ride along the line, and all
will he over. -But," said he-and there
spoke tho christian patriot-"it is our
duty to live, for what will become of the
women and children of the South if we
are not here to protect them." That
same spirit of duty which had actuated
him through all the perils and all the
hardships of that unequal conflict which
he had waged so heroically-that same
high spirit of duty, told him that he
must live to ?how that he was great
greater, if that were possible, io peace
than in war-live to teach the people
whom he had before led to victory, how
to bear defeat-live to show what a great
and good man -can accomplish-live to
set an example to his people for all time
-live to bear, if nothing else, his sharo
of tho sorrows and the afflictions aud the
troubles which bad oome upon his peo?
ple. He is now at rest; and surely we
of the South can say of him, as we say
of his great exam piar, the "Father of
. his Oouutry," that he was first in wm;
firat in peace, and first in the hearts of his
Colonel J. P. Thomas then addressed
tbe meeting as follows:
MR. CHAIRMAN AND FELLOW-CITIZENS:
Allow me to say that it is from circum?
stances, rather than choice, that I am
given the somewhat prominent position,
which I assume with diffidence on this
occasion. I feel, fellow-citizens and
Mr. Chairman, my comparative unwor?
thiness to be the eulogist of the
eminent Southerner, who has recently
breathed his last within the classic con?
fines of the grand old State of Virginia;
for I am perfectly aware that there aro
many hore who stood higher than I did
in the oause, and nearer to General Lee,
and who are far worthier than I to lay
this day upon his grave tho garlands of
honor, of love, and of praise. But, sir,
assuming, as I may assume, to represent
in part the manhood-the youth of the
South-itisperhaps proper that I should,
with the eagerness of youth, step for?
ward in tho discharge of the sad offices
which pertain to this occasion.
Fellow-citizens, I shall be brief; but
allow mo to say that in all those elomonts
which make up the good, tho great, and
tho wise man, General Leo stood proudly
pre-eminent. Endowed as mau is with
a* nature physical, moral, and intel?
lectual, it may bo said that tho greatest
man is he who combines within himself,
in most harmonious union, these three
great elements that make up manhood.
Then, our beloved General was truly a
great man. In intellectual power ho
stood pro-eminent, possessing, as ho did,
a mind self-poised, active und compre?
hensivo. In heart ho stood pre-eminent,
possessing, ns ho did, a soul that was
proud, and faithful, and loyal, and a
heart that was true, and beat ever in
..'? " 1 - - ,"?. iruni"
qnioon with ell that waa groat, and beau
Wal, end good. And In person he stood
?argo Jp* ^?^^TS^bon^MFb^7
and thc|\ oomnBno! jj?o?e _wft$ln J^?
j j FelTow-o?tizenai it k(as ?emixrk6?i.l?'y a
'philosopher-yes, a philosopher of
Booth Carolina-that it waa not within
'the power of man to approximate to the
accuracy with whioh the physical laws of
God perform .their functions, lt may be
said that if an acid ?nd an alkali are
brought into.anion,, a aalt will bo tho
inevitable result;, but it,baa been paid ip
referee co to humanity that ibero ia no
man whose moral nature is so highly en?
dowed and so well developed, that, upon
? his co od net, under all circumstances, yon
can absolutely count. Allow me, fellbw
oitizens, to say that I am not weak
enough, on this occasion, to attribute to
Genoral Leo whoso qualities which would
make bim approximate to divinity; but
this I will Bay, that, when a man like
General Leo has lived, and when a man
like General Lee is dead, we have evi?
dence of the fact that we are, as human
beings, linked with that God who reigns
above; and if a man eyer lived, in this
country or id any other country*, upon
whose conduct, under all circumstances,
you could count witb.^ certainty^! will
say thai; that, mao is" Robert ? Lee,
whose death wo this day lament.
, Fell o w-eitizons, General Lee was great
in Yietpry(,_bu,t Jae was greater.still,in,de-u
footi; Ho was tgrcjit When' he led' tfcje
charging columns of his army amid the
tangled wilda of the Wilderness. He was
great at Chickahominy. He was great on
the Rapidan. Ho was great amid the
thunders of Sharpsburg. He was great
around Richmond, around Petersburg.
He was great in the moment of defeat at
Appomattox-the field that comes to us
to-day with its . proud, though sad- me?
mories. But, sir, in my judgment, Gen.
Leb waa greater than ever on the sublime
occasion of Gettysburg;'- on that grand
day, when Spartan valor and Roman cou?
rage were unavailing, '?b??- the steadiness
of their foes caused tho.Southern troops
to return bullied'from Ibo heights of Get?
tysburg. Whep our soldiers oamo
back from tho fruitless charge dispirited
and despondent, then our great Gene?
ral bore upon his ampio shoulders thc
weight of disaster and defeat. Said he
to his children, as they passed him amid
? the roar of artillery and t ho flash ol
[steel, said he: "Try it once more; it is
my fault that you have been beaten; it
'is my fault that viotoiy does not this
day crown our standard."
I Fellow -citizens, am I not right, when
I say that great, upon all occasions, be
was great in his modesty, great in his
sublime loyalty, great in the Christian
life he 1 i ved, great in the Christian death
Ho is gone, but there will be life to us
in his death if wo shall imitate his vir?
tues, catch the spirit of hts patient wis?
dom and from his dutiful career learn the
lesson of hope, faith and work.
Allow me, sir, to suggest for tho con
sideration of the meeting the following
WHEREAS, Wo have received with pro,
found omotion, the intelligence thal
Gen. Robert E. Lee died in Virginia, oe
yesterdaj, at 9.80 a. m.; and,
WHEREAS, We desire to place upor.
record our appreciation of his charade]
and his services, and thus, in honoring
him, do honor to ourselves. Be it,
Resolved, That Wo, tho citizens of Co
lambin, in this meeting assembled, unite
with our fellow-citizens, all through tin;
Southern land, in paying, this day, the
tribute of honor and respect due to the
memory of ROEERT EDMUND LEE.
Resolved, That, in the death of the
heroic leader of the army of the Con
federate States, the South bas lost one
of her purest and wisest citizens, the
country one of its fairest ornaments, anc
humanity a bright and shining light.
Resolved, That South Carolina, thii
day, sends to Virginia her sympathetic
greetings, and that, speaking from the
Capital, wo do respectfully tender to the
family of the deceased, our condolence
in their great and irreparable loss.
Col. Alexander C. Haskell then spoke
MR. CHAIRMAN: I rise to socond the
resolutions. We do not, Mr. Chairman
moot hero to indulge our own mourning,
Wo do not meet to attempt to eulogize
this great man, or add our needless tes
timony to tho imperishable record of hil
world-spread fame. We meet, Mr. Chair
mau, to givo utterance, as woll as it maj
como from our stifled hearts, of thal
great debt of gratitude which our conn
try owes to General Robert E. Lee. We
meet to add our voices of condolence ant
sympathy to tho voice whioh spring;
from tho hearts of all humanity, and tc
tender this sympathy to our bereavet
country, and to the personal mourner.
of the family of our great and belovoej
general-in-chief. We como not to moori
for our own loss. When, as now, the
great chieftain is gone-when tho living
form o? this example of great humanity
is taken away-it is our duty to givo ex'
pression to our appreciation of bis great
ness, and to plodgo ourselves to follow
as well us may bo within the reach of ou
feeble powers, in thc path of this illus
trious example. Wo meet to give tin
solemn pledge of our country that th
memory of Leo shall not pass from ou:
minds. His outward form alono is bu
ried; his spirit yot lives and shall foreve
livo in the hearts of all the good and tin
great. Conld wo but commune wit!
that great spirit-could tho soldiers auc
citizens of the Confederate States-couh
all Christian people-hod wo nil tba
great privilege of raising our unitee
voice to that living spirit of Robort E
Leo-we would promise that his mentor;
shall never depart from us-that his les
sons shall ever be our sacred guido.
Mr. Chairman, tho expression, feebl
ns it is, of these emotions, devolves upoi
mo as ono of that great host of th
youuger membors of the Confederacy
fffe/?'Vv ~-x - .:^".-iv-- .......
?ou?iry, anjf seal upon the tabletabi
bur hear ta^jiar. solemn promise that hie
lessons shall be remembered. Wo come
to unite oar own hearts by tho bonds bi
sympathy, and to join oar hands together
in our mutual pledge.
Mr. .Chairman, it is the example of tbe j
good and great that1 God gives to us to
elevate mankind. Aa. long as our
noun try Uvea, the . day of the death of
this great chieftain will be tbe anni?
versary of the commemoration of the
greatest example of virtue, of wisdom,
and of Christian fidelity, known in
modern history. Tbe utmost efforts of
our minds, and tho strongest powers .of
expression, oould not picture to the,
world the merits of Qeneral Leo. We
deduce them from the record of his life.
He stands in history as the man, who, iu
bis lifetime, veiled his personal greatness
by his modesty; and who, in his death,
has burst forth to fame in form of un?
tarnished splendor and of unequaled
lustre. Ho stands forth as one against
[ whom the wbolo world can make no
charge save that he was human. That
ono blot-humanity-was yesterday
washed away with the blood of the Son of |
Qod, and Hubert E. Lee, who lived the
greatest man of modern history, now
stands before this Christian world the
; great among tho greatest of the gol die rn
of tho Army of Christ.
Mr. Chairman, I do not venture upon
exaggeration when I UBO these expres?
sions. Nor do I intrude when I thus
allude to the things of Heaven; but only
endeavor, as well ns tho emotions of my
heart' will permit, to state my firm belief,
and to ritter the hope that these truths will
never depart from the minds of tho peo?
ple of our; Con federate States; and that,
for the sake of all humanity, they may
bo placed upon tue records ol the wholo
Thin man, who loved bis God first, and
bis couutry next,' hus boon tykeil ?tito
the ci ti/.eu b hip of that higher and better
Kingdom. His heart, though well .nigh
ready to burst with anguish for the cares
and griefs of the country ho loved so(
well,, yet beter swerved from, troth, nor
from trust io God. It is. our part to
recognize the mercy of God, aud, instead
of mourning, to rejoice that our beloved
old G?n?ral is now freo from tlioso cares
of the world; that he is liftod from the
wreok of the couutry which be served BO
devotedly, and exalted to tho kingdom
of his God. And wo moy, while flllod
with reverence and awe, yet give room
to hopo, that that Heavenly Father will
remember tho one desire of His servaut,
and show mercy and bring comfort to tho
country of tho departed patriot. That,
from tue very hour of tho death of Gen?
eral Lee, we may mark the period of
resuscitation. And, so far is this hope
from superstition or from fancy, that
it is almost a fixed faith in our hearts,
that thus God will commemorate tbe
deeds of Robert E. Lee.
Whilst we mourn with his family
whilst we regret that this living example
is taken from us-we rejoice in tho glory
of bis history-wo rejoice that his im?
mortal star is fixed in the firmament of
the heavens; and to God we pray that]
our country may there fix its eye and
point its hand, and ever strive forward,
forward, forward on the path marked by
the life of Hubert E. Lee, the Christian,
tbe patriot and the soldier.
Mr. Chairman, I second tbe resolu?
The resolutions were unanimously car?
ried; and, on motion of Mr. DeSaussure,
it was ordered that copies thereof be
published in the daily papor of tbe city.
And, on motion of Col. Haskell, it was

To the Dental Profession.
TO aavo natural teeth, not to doatroy, must
bo tho aim of every intelligent Dentist.
Tho-deplorable practice of extracting all
teeth, aound or defective, which stand in thc
way of a full sot, is duo, in a great measure,
to the impossibility of constructing, by means
of clumsy, blook-rubhcr teeth, partial eases
that can bo worn witu any degreo of comfort
In order to amoliorato thia practice, which
cannot but he repugnant to the better judg?
ment of every conscientious and enlightened
operator, tho Patontee makes tho following
reasonable propot it ion:
Ho will dispose of tho soff right of con?
structing dentures, according to bia improved
method, for any city, town or county, to an
cxp?rio?ced practitioner residing therein; or
tho light fora Btate, or State association;
giving also to tho purchaecrs the privilego of
granting licenses to auch operatora ae will
faithfully carry.out tho design of tho improve?
Or he will outer into an arrangement with
membera of tbo profession, by which they can
have constructed at tbe Laboratory of Rey?
nolds & Reynolds, under their inspection
and according to his method, auch cases aa
I thoy may desire;, especially difficult, partial
caaos, designed to pre vont the mutilation of
young aubjeote, ana to enable those moro ad?
vanced in age, to retain for many years, their
remaining natural teeth, as good and useful
Opportunity will thus be afforded Dentists
of testing tho vaine of this improvement,
until euch time aa they, having become con?
vinced of its superiority, shall deeiro to ob?
tain tho right to uso it aa propoaod above.
A margin, sufficient to secure tho co-opera?
tion of experienced and intelligent operators,
will be cheerfully conoedod, for tho agency
they must share in bringing thia method
moro generally within reach of the public
Their co-operation ia earnestly invoked, as
by the general introduction of thia improve?
ment, tho practice above referred to, eo re?
volting to humanity and so opprobrious to the
profcs?ion, may bo, to a great extent, sup?
It may bo well to add here, as demonstrat?
ing tho availability of thia method, that out
I of over 100 casea furnished by B. A R. si uro
ita introduction, not one has been relumed for
repair! In ono or two instances, where, from
careless handling, whon out of the month, a
tooth has boen broken, tho accident baa boen
remedied to tho great delight of tho wearer,
with oulv a few minutos detention. No other
system auowa HUCO results!
"Cert ideates may be had for anything," it ia
6aid. Wo prefer a reference to duplicates re?
tained in our oflico (R. ic II.) of cases now in
daily use, which could not havo been aa'ie
factorily worn, if conetructed on any other
plan. Tho wearers of these have, in many

and made some appropriate remarks.
Mr. O'Connor in a cairn, sensible, practi?

people present, and made a speech well
calculated to have an effect upon the
sensible and the unprejudiced.
By an arrangement made, n colored
man from Charleston-Mujor Sam.

He said that he stood at Thermopyue.
Tho point was woll made as to his party

MANCFAOTURINQ BRICKS RY STEAM.
Several of our enterprising fellow-citi?
zens, headed by Hardy Solomon, Esq.,
have commenced the mnnufdctnre of
bricks on au extensive scale, aided by
steam power. The yard is located near
Broad River Bridge. They have pro?
cured one of Winn's pntent machines,
which will turn out an average of 40,000
bricks per day, and can, in un emergency,
exceed even that number. While we
were present, they moulded 1,250 in
about fifteen minutes. Mr. C. A. Winn,
the inventor, was present, and superin?
tended the working of the machine
which was turned over to the company,
yesterday-and from him we obtained ma?
ny interesting particulars. Tho cost is a
little over $3,000, and the proprietor
agrees to furnish them in good order and
keep them so for one year, or tho money
will be returned. The following brief
desciiption will give an idea what the
machine can really do:
"The principle npon which this ma?
chine makes brick is similar to that of
the brick machines in use on the Hud?
son River, in the vicinity of Haverstraw,
where moro brick are annually manu?
factured than in any other ono locality
in the United States, the amount per day
ranging from one to three millions; but
the arrangement for tempering tho clay
and moulding has been greatly improved
and simplified, whereby tho capacity of
the machino is more than doubled, uud
thc quality of tho brick greatly improved,
making a bettor and stronger brick than
is thero made, or sail be made by the
hand process. Tho machine is combined
with its motive powor, being a steam
boiler, eugino and brick machine com?
bined, the whole mado portable by being
constructed upon wheels, and eau be
