w. >i. niKxcn J3clltor nnd Proprietor ? WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19, 187?. 'the acorn stove mail w.-is in town Inst week and lett trnrcs of his visit on several houses nnd fences. The steamship Ilunlsvtlle wns sold by the United States Marshal in Savannah last week for $12,050. Cheap enough. Hon. Alexnnder-J. Lawton n native of St Peter's Parish, died in Savannah last week His remains were taken to Robcrtrillc for interment. Charleston shippedJNorth on Saturday last two thousand four hundred and sixty-two quarts of strawbeirics and ninety crates of gr en peas. * ? The Lyceum Assoclntb n will giro a hop a*, the Stn 'Island Hotel to-night. All lovers of the dance may expect a pleasant entertainment, and wo liopo to see a full house. Gen. Howard of Whitehall wa9 shot l?y Bomo assassin on Saturday night while returning to his plantation from Grahamvillc. An inquest has been held, the result of which we liavo not vet learned. The U. S. steamer Monongahela and monitor Saugns arrived last Wednesday from Pcnsacola. There are now five mon itors and seven ships ?t the anchorage. Several vessels will leave shortly on a cruise. The bill extending the tiu:o for the redemption of forfeited lauds to Novcui j l?er 1, 1375. and nuitinir off Ihosnlcsotl forfeited lands to the 30th November next, was signed on Thursday lust l>v the Governor. This bill allows all back taxes to October, 1875, to be paid and all for felted lands to be redeemed in bills of the Hank of the Slate. Next in absurdity to carrying coals to New castle one might suppose to be the throwing of water on to a water boat. Such anomalous state of thing* occurred here on Mond ly last when the Agnes was discovered to be on fire and the engines > wcrc-brought down to deluge her with water. The fire was extinguished witluut trouble or Ion. AxoTMcn Oi.At.w.?.V correspondent of the Savannah News writing from Washington says: "Congressman Smalls, of South Carolina, ? iys lie felt when he heard of the wreck of the steamer Planter as though he had lost a member of lib* family. Smalls it wt 1 be recollected, eloped from Charleston with the Planter luring the war, for which exploit he now lias a claim pending before a Senate committee." Mr. F. W . Scliepcr thinking bis handsome littlej mare Lady Beaufort pretty fast, concluded last week to try her on the track at Savannah where she proved her good qualitcs by winning a race agaiast five of the "trotters of that city. Lady Beaufort won in three straight heats, making tiie first mile in 3. 10 1-2 Mr. Scheper f?c!s a greatir interest in his colt as the \vhh raised by liini, inn! with proper training he thinks flic ; will yet become ruinous. The report of the committee appointed L to investigate the chargus against Leslie loive made a report in which they show L that the'ehargea against him wcra true, and that a discrepancy exists in his accounts so far as they could get any date, of $98,000. No.lsioks seem to have been keptfcor at least none could be tumid to guide them in the investigation. The legislature unexpectedly to themselves and the public adjourned last Friday leaving much of the business on hand unfinished, and making no provis ion for the attaches, known as ' HantcliV eis."' No one but the members themselves rcgiet the dissolution ot' this body, and il the people do their dntv this fall many ol these lawmakers will never again he permitted to return to the halts ; they have done sojmuchjto disgrace. The Town Council. Council met Friday evening April 14. t Committee on accounts reported faMi vorably on claim of Capers Harper $5; Small & Dick $12; Wm.

Notification was j received from the Secretary of Washing-1 I r ton Steam tire Engine Co. of iho election I ol officers. Tha election was approved , / by eonncit. )n accordance tvith previo js , | notice the orJinance repealing the ordin- ' i nnco establishing a public market was 1 pissed nnd ratified.

Messrs* Dick & Small, and J. II. Tonking in behalf of Jus. Jenkins made applications for licences under the above resolution. The licences were grunted. The Intendant had but three cases before him on Monday morning. Jim Williams was sentenced to the guard house for-ten days for Vagrancy. Mor ris Jackson for firing ofl' a gun witbii the town limits wns assessed five dollnn winch whs paid, the informer getting half. Wm.Allstnn for drunkences om dollar and costs or two d?y6 in the guard bonne. , I A Card. &htor of the Tribune: The Standard and Commercial of the fltb insiant contained a letter from P. F. Appleton, in which hecfclls upon ua to ad-. mi~e the "cnt'Tprisa and public spirit" of " bich l?c seen.a to think himself the indi vidua1 embodiment. Phi1 self laudation io better cnlcu'ntcd to mi lead others J than those who, as residents of t his place , during the past eight years, know all > about the purchase of land at Battery ' Point and Old Fort, the construction of ( the Port Royal Hail Road and the means i adopted for securing the right of way from property holders on the line. No ( one knows better than Mr. Appleton that \ his interest in the building up of Port ( Royal is that of a speculator, that but ' few deeds have been actually issued for the lots that hare been sold by him nt < high nriros from time to time, nnd that the ] Rail Road was necessary to make a sue- 1 cess of the land investment at Port Royal: This same argument of "public snlrit" was used where practicable, when the rond was in progress, to induce land owners t?? vicld the right of way, but w hen the lard of an ignorant ne?rro was o b" invaded, if he made any objection, be was perhaps offered a Rharc in the I ?toek of the rond or told to make the best of it, ih the mud employed an attorney by the year to attend to such contest*. Under the plon of "enterprise," the town of Henuf'Wt was without station ncroaimodations for several years, .the system of "begging." whiolifeh.iraCtorized the management of tin* rood demanding tlint the citizens of Bcanfott should subscribe several thousand d dlars to build a depot, or go without ore. We bear a great deal nbont the necessity of strict economy being pracric 1 ed to ensure the continued operation of the road, and that in tlii ? economical spirit the iusf claims of its creditors meet delay in their settlement. *1 rucr economy would hare been shown in settling with the owner of land which had been trespassed npon. thereby avoiding costs' and incurring the d tngrr ot a retnoTiil of tlie track by legal process. We think ' too, that in tlie interests of economy and j the public weal the issuing of tree passes : to members of the General Assembly nnglit bnve been discontinued, adding to tlie receipts of the ro.id the mileage now pocketed by the legislators and enhancing the Taiue of real estate by abridging the sessions of the law makers. A s long as Port Royal city lots remain unsold, there is little chance for a line ot stages to Ycmassee, for Mi. Applcton is well aware that the terminus of snch n lino would 1>e Reautort and not Port Royal, and as in the construction of the load it was made to deviate from tho original survey in order to <mvo tho go by, it is in no danger of being discontinued at the risk of making the Battery Point investment n failure. *V. J. Vkhdibh. Beaufort S. C. Aoril 17.1870. The convention which met in Columbia lnat week was a very inharmonious ' ho ly and conducted themselves as is. their custom on such occasions. "Wliitte-! more, who was in the chair made a rul- j ing that wa9 unsatisfactory when Cnrdozo appealed and w anted to know who should voteonihcjappeal. Thiswas before the contested so its had been decided, and the excitement was at fever h at. Several delegates were on the! floor calling for the roll and raising j ' points of order. j Judge Muckcy sprang to his feet and j said to the president: "The question is, not wlicthir you will recognize ua, but | 1 whether the rnnwntinn will you." Mackey, ad midst intense excite-j ment added: "We meet here to-dav,! face to face and eye, to eye the banded j robbers that have plundered the State.'"; Swuils, rushing up to Mackey, said: ; Who d*> you mean?" r Mackey replied: ''You r.re one of thcin. and to-day will we send all of you to everlasting defeat. You have come here to trample on the honest people of I South Carolina. We can send you all . to jail, and we mean to do it." Elliott now came face to face with Mackey, the two In jug separated only by the desk, and flshed Mackey who he meant. Mackey, his strident voice raising above j the din, said; "You nreouc of them: j jruu u*u I'lnrnraa nnu ironr.'r Elliott said: "You're a liar," and, drawing a pistol, moved around the desk to get at Mackcy, who, with his hand on his weapon, awaited events. Tnbles were up?ct in all directions, a chair was | brandished over the head of Chamber I lain, who sat unmoved. The delegates i huddled nrouud Elliott on the one aide, and M at key on tho other, and the con fusion was heightened by the hysterical | screams of Mrs. Elliott, who was in the 1 hall. Patterson made for tire door. Wnrthington, with his hand on his pi&'ol, kept on the edge of the crowd, which ] had drifted to one corner of the hall < Whlttomore, looking very yaIo, rapped , vainly for old'.r.
