COLUMBIA, S. C.1
Wednesday Morning, July 7, 1875.
The Suspension of the South Carolina
Bank and Trust Company.
Governor Chiuuborluin vetoed the bill,
hist winter, establishing the South Caro?
lina Bank und Trust Com puny mid tho
Central National Dunk, of this city, tho
depositories of the State funds. If wc
remember, the Executive objections to
the bill were the bad policy of such u
measure generally and the insecurity of
banks in particular. When the vote came,
"Shall tho bill pass, the objections of
the Governor to the contrary notwith?
standing?" it was lost in the Senate, anil
the matter was left to the disposition of
the old law. It fell to the Governor, the
Treasurer and tho Comptroller to make
the appointment, and the South Carolina
Bank and Trust Company was appointed
among others. It is not an unusutd
thing for ptiblic officers to deposit tho
public funds in tho strong box of some
strong banking corporation, but it is o
most unusual thing for tho bank to
break with a large amount of the people's
money on hand. Does tho responsibility
fall upon tho bank, or upon the board
who ordered tho funds placed there, or
does it fall directly upon tho State Trea?
surer, who is, -under the law, responsi?
ble to tho people for tho safety of tho
public monoys entrusted to his charge?
Many of theso questions are suggested
by tho loss of tho $200,000 involved in
the late suspension. The loss is not only
in the actual sum, but in the heavy blow
. given to tho public credit, in the sus?
pension of tho operations of tho funding
?bill, which is sure to follow this disaster.
Public confidence has not yet had time
to recover itself, and tho consolidated
bonds, made iron-clad by evory possible
legislative provision, have never reached
sixty cents, nor nro they yet quoted on
the Exehango in Wall street Tho State
was not yet admitted to a financial status
in the markets of tho country, and this
unexpected failure will check its further
hope and throw it back into a dangerous
relapse. It is true, that the loss of the
money is counterbalanced by a large
amount of debt duo by the State to tho
bank; but that debt has to bo investi?
gated, and the law provides that the lovy J
?of one year shall not be appropriated to
pay the debts of another. It could not
provide, however, against it being ap?
propriated in this way, because it conld
not provide against this catastrophe. Tho
News and Courier says that thoro was
$13,000 of the public money, belonging
to tho Bank of the Stute, on deposit with
the Sonth Carolina Bank and Trust Com?
pany. If so, then that is $43,000 more
sunk in the wreck. Attorney-General
Melton said, yesterday, in his opening
remarks to tho jury in tho Parker enso,
that he expected to prove a fraud upon
tho State of about $500,000 of coupons.
Some time ago, we heard of a heavy suit
in soak against the Republican Printing
Company, and others against Mr. Leslie,
of Land Commission fame. Putting all
these things together, it looks as if tho
political and financial future of the State
was growing darker and darker, und the
light that was beginning to break was
fast disappearing. In tho Purker trial,
however, wo may find some evidence of
a real earnestness to reform the State and
purify our public administration.

land Rifle Club, at tho invitation of
Company A, Oglethorpe Infantry, of
Augusta, to participate with them in tho
celebration of the Fourth of July at that
place, assembled at the Charlotte Depot
nt 5 o'clock, on Sunday afternoon
last, accompanied by tho excellent
band of tho Eighteenth United Statos
Infantry. A large crowd was gathered
to choer tho club on to victory. At tho

At Granitovillo, the party was met by a
delegation from Company A, Oglethorpe
Infantry, consisting of Major W. T.
Gary, Lieut W. J. Delpb, Sergeant L. T.
Talinferro, Sorgeont Geo. C. Oaten and
Corporal J. T. Muyno. Arriving at Au?
gusta at 9.30 P. M., tho It ich hind Hillen
wore received by tho Oglethorpes and es?
corted to their hall, where a tempting re?
past was sot. Capt. 3. F. Webb then de?
livered tho following address of welcome:
Gentlemen of the Richland Rifle
Club: The Oglethorpe Infnnfry now
throw open wide to you their doors, as
they have already thrown wide open to
you their hearts, to bid you a hearty
welcome; and their greeting is echoed
and re-echoed by their fellow-soldiery
and tho citizens of Augusta. Wc thank
you for your co-operation with us in the
celebration of that day whoso ninety
ninth anniversary was ushered in by the
coming of this morning's sun. Too long
have wo suffered to wane those fires
which our fathers lighted ninety-nine
years ago. Almost it would seem that
wo had forgotten that tho day is as much
our heritage as it is tho heritage of the
men of the North. Wore not tho flames
of freedom funned into lifo.in the South
by the mngic voico of Henry, of Rut
lodge, and other pntriots of the South?
Sent not forth South Carolina as her rep?
resentatives, her Rutlcdge, her Middle
ton, her Lynch, her Heyward? Wns not
Georgia represented by her Gwinnett,
her Walton, her Hall? And did not
those sons of Carolina and of Georgia
sign tho immortal declaration of freed?
om with as firm hands and as undaunted
hearts as did their compatriots from the
North? Did not the South send forth
her sons to do battle for that cause of
freedom? Was not South Carolina pre?
sent in her warriors, Marion, Sumtor,
Pickens, Gadsden and other heroes who
led her soldiery to battle? Can wo not
point to many a Southern battle-field
whero freedom was contended for? There
is Yorktown, thero is King's Mountain;
and in your own State there is Camdcn,
Hanging Rock, Cowpens, Eutaw and
Charleston. In our own State there is
Savaunah, Brier Creek, Augusta, and
othor scenes of the fight for American
independence. Then, is not tho day
which saw tho colonies declare their in?
dependence a Southern heritage which
Southern men should over hold in
memory? Then, gontlemen, we thank
Jou for your co-operation with us in cele
rating that day made forever famous by
our sires. We thank you for your pre?
sence bore to-night, to-morrow and dur?
ing your stay with us; and onco again,
gentlemen of tho Richland Rifle Club,
from our hearts' deepest, truest depths,
we bid you welcome, welcome, thrice
Capt. Thompson, in replying to the
address of Capt. Webb, returned tho
sincere thanks of tho Richland Rifle Club
for tho cordial greeting they had received.
Thoy had been promised a Georgia wel?
come, and thoy well know all that term
implied. Tho Ride Club had come, not
to compete with the well-trained soldiers
of Augusta, for they knew thoy were un?
equal to the task, but it was hoped that
the display of to-morrow would excite in
the hearts of the Carolinians a generous
spirit of rivalry which would oncourago
and animate them to greater exertion.
The intimate relations which had existed
betweon tho soldiers of the two States
bad been fitly described in tho address
of welcome. Somo of those now in the
ranks of the Rifle Club had stood shoul?
der to shoulder with the sonB of Georgia
in defence of thoso principles for which
South Carolina and Georgia had always
oontended. No matter what the occa?
sion might be, whether for parades of
ceremony or in tho discharge of tho
sterner duties of the soldier, the Caroli?
nians desired no truer or better comrades
than tho Georgians. If in tho grand pa?
rade of to-morrow the Richland Rifle
Club should be deemed worthy of tho
Elaco assigned them in tho Independent
attalion, they would feel that they had.
achieved all for which on this occasion
they could dare to hope.
Near midnight, tho club took leave of
their hosts and sought their quarters at
the Central Hotel, whero accommoda?
tion had previously been arranged. The
hospitality of tho Oglethorpes and
Georgians on thy; first night was only a
foretaste of what they were to receive on
the following day. Refreshed by a good
night's rest, tho boys arose next morning
as fresh as larks, buoyant with tho hope
of victory in tho rifle contest that was
soon to take place. At 9 A. M., the pro?
cession formed on Green street in tho"
following order, two salutes being fired
as the procession moved off: Richmond
Hussars, Augusta; Post Band, Columbia;
Company A, Orglcthorpc Infantry, Au?
gusta; Company B, Oglethorpe Infantry,
Augusta; Clinch Rifles, Augusta; Irish
Volunteers, Augusta; Richland Rifle
Club, Columbia; Marino Band, Charles?
ton; delegation Charleston Sabre Club;
delegation German Hussars, Charleston;
delegation Charleston Zouaves; Wash?
ington Artillery, Charleston;St. Patrick's
Band, Charleston; delegations of the
Charleston Riflemen and Irish Riflemen;
Montgomery Guards, Charleston, and
Washington Artillery, Augusta. In this
order the procession moved down Green
to Elbert street, up Elbert to Broad,
through Broad to the upper market,
where, after a short rest, thoy took the
street cars for tho Schuotzcn Platz. On
arrival at the grounds, tho companies
drew for tho order in which they were to
fire in tho contest for prizes, and tho
Richland Rifle Club drew No. 6, but by
request of tho colonel commanding,
were the first to fire, as they wero ready
for tho target, and tho other companies
were making preparations. Tho first
prize was for visiting companies, each
company firing fifteen shots. The fol?
lowing members from tho Richland Rille
Club entered tho conteBt: John P. Ar?
thur, W. H. Caason, R. N. Ricbbourg,
W. G. Bock, E. E. Calvo, W. C. Chap?
man, A. E. Clothier, J. W. Cook, S. D.
Friday, Joseph W. Mullor, S. Morrison,
W. H. Manning, A. N. Tallqy^ Jr., J. H.
Walker, William E. Orchard. The dis?
tance was 100 yards, and tho tar
get about three feet square. En?
sign B. N. Richbourg centred the bnll's
eye, which proved to bo tho best Bhot
made during the day. Of tho Richland
Hilles, Warden John P. Arthur made
the second best shot, scoring 13?14 be?
ing tho highest possible score, made by
R. N. Richbourg. Tho Richland Rifles
scored 73; the German Social Club, of
Charleston, D2; the Montgomery Guards,
of Charleston, 42?these ocing tho suc?
cessful competitors out of the eight visit?
ing companies. Tho local clubs then
entered the cantest for the various
prizes which had been specially set
apart for them, with the following result:
Company It, Oglethorpe Infantry, scored
2H3; Irish Volunteers 371?; Oglethorpe
Infantry, Company A, 444; Clinch Hilles
455. Tho prize for this match was for
local companies, presented by Mr. Plant,
of Augusta. Thirty men out of each
company entered the contest, firing three
At 5.30 P. M., the battalion was re?
formed in front of the Schuet/.en Hall,
when tho prizes were presented to the
successful companies. Ctipt. Poster, of
tho Augusta Battalion, presented to the
Richland Hille Club tho first prize for
visiting companies, praising lh? ir skill
as marksmen, and congratulating them
upon their success. This prize was a
beautiful double fruit-stand and bouquet
holder. Capt. Thompson replied in a
feeling and eloquent speech. The second
prize, a fruit casket, was awarded to the
German Sociid Club, of Charleston,
which wos presented by Lieut. Cohen
and received by Capt. Tmmbo. The
third prize was presented to the Mont?
gomery Guards, of Charleston, which
was received by Mr. A. G. Magrath, Jr.
Col. McKinney, on behalf of Oglethorpe
Infantry, Company A, of Auguste, pre?
sented to tho Richiand Rille Club, in a
few happy remarks, a handsome punch
bowl anil ladle. Capt. Thompson re?
ceived this present with thanks, praising
Georgia and her noble sons, paying a
handsome tribute to her fair daughters,
and promising the Oglethorpes to reci?
procate their kind treatment at no dis?
tant day by a re-union of the Georgia
and South Carolina soldiery at Columbia.
The battalion was then turned over to
tho company officers, and marched out?
side tho grounds, when the street cars
were rc-enterod. At the upper end of
Broad street, the line was re-formed and
tho Richland Rifles were escorted to
their quarters. In tho evening a concert
was given by the Oglethorpe Infantry, in
which the Post Baud of Columbia took a
conspicuous part, and which was attended
by many of the Columbia delegation; at
tho conclusion of which the Oglethorpes,
Company A, escorted tho Richland Hilles
to tho depot. Too much praise cannot
be bestowed upon Company A for the
hospitable manner in which they enter?
tained the Columbia boys. They all ex?
press themselves as highly delighted with
their trip, and only regret that they could
not stay longer with their Georgia friends.
Tho Richland Hilles reflected great credit
upon the old Palmetto State, fully sus?
taining its ancient military renown, and
thoy had abundant assurance that the
impressions they left on the minds and
in tho hearts of their friends in Georgia
are not to be effaced in a day.
Tho heat was very oppressive during
tho morning, but before dinner was an?
nounced there was a grateful shower
from a passing cloud, which had a de?
cidedly cooling effect upon the atmos?
phere. By this time, tho ladies had
commenced to arrive, and soon tho spa?
cious hall of the Seh netzen Verein was
filled with the beauty of Augusta. The
hall was decorated with flowers, and the
walls lined with flags; banners were sus?
pended around the room, bearing the
names of tho different States. The 18th
Infantry Band entered the hall, whin
the dancing began. The South Carolina
boys proved themselves equally as ex?
pert in tripping the ''light fantastic" as
in handling tho rifle. The gay uniforms
of the different flashing military clubs
blended with tho brilliancy of tho lady
friends of the Empire State, made a gor?
geous display. Tables were set under
the shade of the trees, which were filled
with an abundance of eatables, and
guests received every attention at the
hands of their hosts.
Various amusements were, provided,
affording tho visitors ample opportunity
to while away the time pleasantly. The
"Laughing Polka," by the Marine Band
of Charleston, was capital, and was re?
ceived with rounds of applause.
Thirteen guns were fired at sunrise
and thirty-six at sunset. T.
Three Attainable Blessings.- -A good
appetite, vigorous digestion and sound
sleep aro threo blessings that imply a
good many more, and are attainable by
the daily use of Hostotter's Stomach
Bitters. Tho stomach that is invigor?
ated by that ruling tonic rapidly dis?
poses of tho food committed to it, and at
tho proper timo craves for more with
natural earnestness, and the brain from
which pain and despondency have been
banished by that salutary anodyne and
cheoring cordial, enjoys at the hour of
rest that tranquil, dreamless repose for
which no other boon that Providence
can bestow can compensate. Besides
thoso most desirable results, tho entire
physique is strengthened and fortified
against tho attack of disease by this
splendid vitalizer and protective agent,
which, take it altogether, is about tho
most desirable, as it is unquestionably
one of tho most popular modicines in

was looking for him, just reached the

chine was hauled out. By 5 o'clock,
the youngsters and the colored military?
I were astir- the signal gun from the
roof of the City Hall being fired by Mr.
Cramer. Pistols and lire-crackers were
brought into requisition, and kept up a
lively lusilade. A handsome llag was
flung to the breeze from the front of the
United States Court House, while the
I national emblem was displayed from

Aug. Cooper, with his Randolph* Bides;
Capt. John Bynuui, with his Zouaves,
(all with very thin ranks,) paraded
through Main and some of the other

gathering of all ages (principally co?
lored.) The Declaration of Independ?

There were pic-nic parties, base ball

Pleasing Incidents of the Foli.th.?
At the close of work on the new United
States Court House, Saturday last, the
workmen were reejuested to remain, for
the ostensible purpose of raising and
placing in position the heavy eagle
tipped flag-stall', which is to remain per?
manently upon the building, and from
which, on Monday, floated the starred
standard of the nation, creating, so far
as is known, (country papers not having
reacheil us at this date,) no dissatisfac?
tion, other than the very general regret
that the wind, except at brief periods,
was insufficient to waft in tho air its
graceful and bcantitul folds. Having
finished their pleasant labor, the em?
ployees repaired to the capacious general
post office room, and after a brief delay
I in securing reserved and orchestra seats,
on tool chests and carpenters' benches,
an order was issued for the arrest of our
esteemed townsman, Charles E. Kirk,
(tho present muster mechanic on the
w*ork,) to appear and ausWer to variou>
complaints preferred against him by the
mechanics under bis charge. Upon the
appearance of Mr. Kirk, Mr. Osgood A.
Mood, of the painters' division, with the
solemnity of a Trial Justice sentencing
a chicken thief, presented, in a low
pointed remarks, the causes of complaint
against Mr. Kirk, and sentenced bim to
wear through life a massive and elegant
gold hunting watch, on which had pre?
viously been placed tho following in?
scription: "Presented to C. E. Kirk by
the mechanic > on the United States Court
J House anel Post Office, Columbia, S. O,
July -1, 1S75." Mr. Kirk, in a few feeling
and eloeiuent remarks, which brought
tears to tue eyes of his persecutors, pro?
tested against tho jnstico of his sentence;
but, like most victims in the clutches of
law, was forced to submit, anel everybody
says, "served him right."
