^ As our reader? -/nay presumo, we have
not the honor of Governor Scott'scon?
denoo. Nor does tho PHONIX interview
people whoso ?tateme nts, after they are
marie, may jolt o% well be deetrigd false
as true. Aa his Excel 1 ency is now ar-'
reigned before the bar of tho public, and
baa been placed.'by tho New,York World
in th? ortmiaaTs dook, lt is proper that'
his defence bo heard. Tho correspond
ent of the Charleston Courier has inter?
viewed 1 OoViT Booti.' 'About the"'oily
praotioal piece of information he gives,
is that arrangements have been made to
take tho financial agency of the State
from the present agent and place it in
the banda of the Union Trust Company,
Of New York. That is, Gov. Scott A
Ob. propose to look the stable doors
after toe horses of the State have been
stolen; and be, perhaps, not the least
pdtoriorjB in the bond of the Radi?
cal officials who have grown, fat and
waxed Baucy upon the bleeding and mu?
tilated body of prostrate Carolina. Why,
we oak his Excellency, did you make
Kimpton your financial agent in New:
York, and pince millions of State secu?
rities in his unknown hands, without ex?
acting eren, a bond from him, such as an
assistant cashier gives in one pf onr oity
banka? You Sud your advisers, we aay
to bis Eioellenoy, are responsible in law
and morals for all'that the Stato of South
Carolina may lose from the great con?
spiracy-flnaaoial-whereby unknown
millions may perhaps have been added
to the public debt of Sooth Carolina.
Is it true that, tho public debt pf this
State may/new "bo, QYIM?, $25,000,000?' If
so, oan oar poor and plundered people
pav 9l,50O,O0Q per annum interest oh:
that debt, ?nd,'besides that sum, the
current expenses of the Government?
Whither are wc drifting?.' Whither sails,
the ship of State? Ao d what says the
Attorney-General of the State? Have
yon no duties'in thia crisis to discharge?
If tho State has been plundered-if the
treasury bas been invaded-as we know
is the osse-is it not the duty of the At?
torney-General tb proceed against the
plunderers? : Where frauda were alleged
in New York, Gov. Hoffman pnt his At?
torney-General to work. If Scott is no
Hoffman, is it also the case that Cham?
berlain is no Champlain? We said that
this man Kimpton would cost the State
at least $1,000,100. Is it that our esti?
mate was very moderate? It looks very
mach like it. Alas for South Carolina,
when swindlers and robbers prey upon
her, and then hide themselves under the
TjDited States flag! Scott & Co. plunder
onr people, and then call upon Graut,
and be puts them under military rule!

The Recent Triennial Convention nf thc
Protestant Episcopal Cliurcn.
Thia august and imposing body com?
pleted its labors on Ootober 26, last. It
was held iu Baltimore, and amoog the
divines and laymen present were repre?
sentatives from South Carolina. There
were representatives also from the Mo?
ther Church in Old England. The ses?
sion of the Convention lasted twenty
days, and a good ' deal of business was
despatched. We observe that tbe an?
cient reputation of the Protestant Epis?
copal Church for u wise conservatism
for tbat golden mean which lies between
extremes-was maintained. The debatt a
were harmonious. Tbe first not of the
"reveroud fathers in God" was to signify
their desire to canonically forbid certain
praotices which we're creeping into the
the Church and loading it Homewards.
This subject led to an interesting de?
bate, and introduced the vexed question
of ritualism. Finally, as wo aro in?
formed, a resolution was almost unani?
mously passed, "condemning ceremo?
nies, ko., foreign to standards of the
Church, and holding that the paternul
counsel and advice of the bishops wus
sufficient ai this time to suppress all
that is unseemly and irregular." An?
other important work of this Conven?
tion wag the declaration of tho House of
Bishops as to the word "regenerate," as
nsed in the offices of the Church for the
ministration of the baptism of infanta.
It was held that no moral change ia
wrought in the subject of baptism. The
Convention also decided to restore tbe
.noient order of "deaconesses" in the
Church, and authorised the organiza?
tion of "houses of meroy," where wo?
men oan take vows and live a holy life
in acts of charity and religious servioc.
Upon the whole, we aro inclined tc
.onclndo that the Convention did its bu?
siness in a calm, wise and sagacious
spirit-as noto God and not unto man.
If work of no striking character wut
done, and if few great points were set
tied, yet a vast amount of regalar and
necessary busioess was transacted, ano
the foundations of tho Charoh were hf!
firm.

greeUngs were ?jlveo; anc? received from
fr louds encl ncqnaiBtundoff ti) na brought
together* in" happy meeting. Smiling
faces were visible everywhere, and it
seemed as though,each and everyone
bad determined to hi y aside tb? cares
aod troubles which are surrounding us
on every side, and let happiness reign
supreme.
Tbe grounds and buildings were
thronged in every part, until it became
almoat impossible to pass from one part
to another, yet every one submitted to
the compressing process good-naturedly.
Even the ladies seemed to enjoy it-per?
haps they were nsed to it.
At 10 o'clock, the brass bands "played
off" for the championship of the State,
as the best blowers. The Firemen's
Band, of this city, nader Prof. Ly Brand,
and Thompson's (colored) Band, were
tbe two contestants. Eauh band per?
formed two of their best pieces, and
elicited the applause of the large num?
ber of listeners, filling all the Beats sur?
rounding the amphitheatre. The com?
mittee selected consisted of Cols. Bush
and Taylor and Prof, W. H. Orchard.
These gentlemen awarded the prize of
$300 to LyBraod'a Band, but all unite
in a_h<gbly complimentary notice of
Thompson's Band.
At ll o'clock, a game of base ball was
played between the B. E. Lee and the
Alert Clubs. The game was very spirit?
ed and hotly contested, and resulted in
a neuro of 14 to 23 io favor of the Alerts.
We regret that circumstances inter?
fered with the arrangement for baking
bread and cooking other articles by u
little girl, eleven years of ega. Every?
thing wa s ready for the contest, but the
stove having been placed upon the wrong
side of the building, it was found that
there was not Buffioient draught, lt is
to be hoped that a more successful effort
will be made to-day, aod that all the vi?
sitors will take an interest in this mutter,
as too much encouragemeut cauuut be
awarded to those who ure willing to work
with their own bands.
A number of fine horses were exhibit?
ed in the arena, giving a tine opportuni?
ty for horsemen to show off their cques
trianBhip. Among the horses on exhibi?
tion at tho fair, we particularly noticed
a finn animal entered by A. Eshelman,
Esq. For size sad beauty he cannot be
excelled.
We were pleased to observe that oar
frieads from the oouatry seemed to be
interested in tbe portable gos machines
on exhibition. These uro tbe very tbinge
for country towns and private housed,
and should be very extensively intro?
duced throughout the State, especially
in hotels aud public buildings. The
machine known as the Columbia Porta?
ble Gas Machine, took the prize yester?
day at the Mechanics' Institute Fuir in
New York. The other machine, by thu
Southern Oas Light Company of Colum?
bia, claims many advantages over all
others. They are both, doubtless, good
machinan, and worthy of extensive snle.
Wu noticed a very superior carnet and
rug from tho establishment of Messrs.
J. II. & M. L. Kinard, which attruoted
the attention of housekeepers. The dis
play of carpets is exceoJingly handsome,
from the three bouses of Messrs. Ki
nurd's, Shiver Sc Co., and Love A Co.
A show cuso filled with silver ware, t(
bo given away us prizes, was a new at
traction. They are furnished by tin
well-known Charleston house of W. G.
Whildeu, and ure of the very best muk?
and material. Among them wo obaorvi
silver te? sets, pitchers, goblets, cups,
spoons, ladies, forks, fruit knives, nap
kiu riugs, uud immy other articles, all o
which will be givea away to tho fortn
natu exhibitors who excol in their re?
spective departments.
Many persons wero attracted to tin
neighborhood of the pianos, as a mini
ber of amateurs tried tho instrument
and pronounced them very iiuu. A li ttl?
miss, not moro tbau ten years of age
played so ve ral pieces with great preci
sion, showing marked musical talent.
The bazaar wus the centre of alt rsc
(ion, particularly about dm uer time, am
it was to be regretted that more spuci
bud not been allotted to the ladies, ai
they could have kept three times tlx
number of tubles whioh they bad, con

a hungry waiter was observed, wuitio)
for a vacant obair at some table, whil
the lady wuiters earned goldeu praise
by their patient efforts to pleuso und ac
oommodate all who came. We trus
their receipts wera largo, to compens?t
them iu some degree for their urduou
labors.
A groat nnmbor of sido-shows were ti

various places upon the grounds, catch

To-day the great attraction will' be the
riding at the ring, by quite a number of
geptlemen, ' who . baye ontored their
nauiea. "W.eJearn .J'".*' uiosteen or
twenty h?ve volunteered for~the oc?
casion, so that there may bu expected
much interest' to-day. We trust a large
number of visitors will bo ?o hand, to
give encouragement tu the ridera, and
cheer them np in their work.
A large number of ?trangers arrived
last night by all the trains, so that the
city is crowded almost to ita ut m ont ca?
pacity; still, there is room for a few
moro. Let all oome who cnn, aud we
will try to give them a hearty welcome.
We had nearly omitted to make par?
ticular mention of a magnificent horse,
on exhibition, by Dr. J. F. Ensor. Hie
admirers were numerous, aud many
were tho sentiments of praise bestowal
upon him. The Doctor may well feel
proud of his speoimen in the stock line.
Poon SOUTH CAROLINA. - The New
York World says :
"We were wrong in thinking South
Carolina only tormented by tho yellow
fever which desolates her sea-coast and
Mr. Grant's despotism which harries her
western border. A third calamity op?
presse.) ner, and that is the astouudiug
robbery which bret fl ods a revelation in
our columns to-day. It 6eems that the
debt of the Stute, which wus $5,000,000
when the present scoundrel government
took place, and which waa admitted by
Governor Scott shortly after tho Tax?
payers' Convention meeting in Columbia
in May laat to bo from $12,000,000 to
$14,0U0,000, is now ascertained to be, at
the least, $25,000.000. Bouda to over
$20,000,000 have been printed in thie
city, and the exact stains of the South
Carolina debt no man can to-day say.
The reconstructed Governor Scott, now
in this city, caunot tell, neither unn any
of his ofllcial8, all of whom have like?
wise swarmed hither of late, Bay. An im?
penetrable cloud rests over these ?nancea,
and all that clearly appears is this:
that thens have been $20,000,000 of
bonds printed in this city, and of the
whole inane, it may be written nulla vnsti
gia retrorsum -none cun explain where
tho money has gone. We bear that in?
terest payable in this city has beeu
promptly met after the fashion of swind?
ling corporation:! winch borrow money
to pay dividends, while interest payable
in the capital of South Carolina baa been
allowed to go by default, in the hope
that such default in that far-swi?y region
might not excite the attention any de?
fault in Wall street would arouse. Fur?
ther, we have it that open war is declared
betweeu Scott, the reconstructed Govern?
or, and the broker formerly his fidus
Achates in this city for the management
of tho Stnte funds.
"Still further, iu ull this appear the
ear-markB of that great natioual gift
taker, Mr. Grant. The reconstructed
Governor Scott was, prior to his election,
a Freedmen's Bureau mun, ono ui Phil?
anthropist Howard's servitors. Philan?
thropist Howard beiug a bird of the
samo feather with Receiver-General
Graut, a kindly feeling is entertained to?
wards reconstructed Governor Scott by
the administration. Whether this fel?
low-feeling has led to tho military despo?
tism now existent in South Carolina with
the object of keeping those monstrous
financial rascalities in the family, does
not now appear. It soon may."
