Government would ioubtless be enough to build the own mortgage would be clear to be divided among theugh tho bonded mortgage debt exceeds he road cost but to It was accordingly determined to use A good of this peculiar stock of mortgage wherever it would do as Ames to get Congress cBango it a first Durant being a Democrat dealt with the and Ames with the Republicans and they promised the stock

game they let the building of the road toOakes Ames for which he was to assign to the stock Credit ibul irot A heavier trouble came upon them when a McOombinsisted that they had rfot given Him his

get these people mad with lam in railroad enter and dont wanfc to stir up a hor nets nest You dont warit to have ihis Ames replied that he did not caro anything about every body know that Congressmen were briboi he could bribe any of them that McComb might tell allIto knew as he So MoOorab filed his bill in eaving out the names of all members of as he was very as a argo stockholder of the railroad and of tho Credit not to expose the means by which tho laws by which the companies hadbeen established and made profitable had been passed and he by keeping the that it would be easier to make a settlement with Ames and the Credit Mobilior and etIlls money J so the bill in equity only referred tdthe transactions atid Ames otters in a general To this bill o framed Ames answered upon his hat he never wrote1 arty such letters and hat he never distributed any such Ames bungling lawyers on the ublication of all tho supposing heir client The suit was laid iver during the Presidential campaign a Sun reporter stole the pa pers in the case from Ames lawyers and mblished which was followed by denial from all bub who Was now sorry that he had started the Speaker Elaine Was enabled to clear his and boldy pushed for an inves The resolution and a majority of the opposition was put on he on the ground that there vas no Democrat or Grreoloy man who ad been as that was the licory upon which Blainoa tesolu ion was McComb testified before the commit among other as follows aincs Brooks had one hundred and fifty hares of Credit Mobilier and that received and more of divi or increase on account of owning took of the Credit Mobilier and if will examine the books of the Credit Vtobilier nnd witnesses whom I will he truth will One of the wit nesses is Thomas who is now suing for tho fifty shares I lemandthat you send for and examine hose as due to myself nnd to Congress and the It would seem the gentle men made denials expected and might have desired Ames to go before committee and affirm his sworn ans wer in the chancery denying that he had ever distributed the stock or written he letters and the stock list produced by so that all might con tinue in their denials made in the papers ihatthoy had ever had any stock and everybody would thus have got out of hci scandal except who might be badly damaged by any evidence that might be produced from Bardwell and others of the fact that Ames hud said over and over again that he had dis the stock to the persons ButAmeavraa unwilling to be a scape He concluded tell the whole ruth about the distribution of the stock and his letters to of course denying that in giving to anybody that was worth share for one iiunttrod paid the company for any body supposed there was aivy wrong or bribery in the He insisted that everybodysmotives wore good and pure in taking the stock aswell asin iving of they But the stock is unfortunately traced by Ames own statement intothe hands of many gentlemen whose names have been t on the stock list and their connectionwith it and the denials of over havmg had it arc to be explained as well as they can It is suid that du ring these developments one gentleman of high position wont with tears in his eyes to und wanted the stock Another great came upon the Union other Pacific roadswhen two years ago Mr Boutwell said to them Your roads arc and I do not see reason why the government should be paying you for carrying troops nnd its nails while you owe it I pro pose to have you offset all your earnings in doing government business against the interest which the government has to pay youevery year on the bonds which the government gave and then pay tho because the mortgage which se cures these bonds is not too valuable and ifthe debt accumulates tho interest for thirty years till all the bonds are it will become less and less valuable each Credit Mobilier at once foil from 7o to Then Congress was persuaded to pass a law postponing the payment of this interest for thirty This put the stock up It has boon said Boutwcll and Dawes stand in the same relation to this But the facts are these Boutwcll al ways gave his vote against everything the road wanted Dawes always gave his voter antf his influence for everything tho road Boutwcll never denied that he had when he neverdid haveit Dawes did as allthe people understood having had any of this when he did have as of the ordered the Pacific llailroads to pay up their interest due the United States from their earnings out of the govern menrt chairman of a comnrittce of agreed to a net voted

Henry Miles for release of obligation fc rent a city wharf on Ashley Kivcr had been favorably reported and that a peti tion of George to lease the same at one thousand with leava to a steam had likewise received a favorable The comnittoe on city to whom tho matter Was have since perfected the exchange of and Hudgins is now preparing toerect a steam circular aatf mill upon the Wharf This wharf is on the west side of Lynch between Beaufain and Queen and is at present in a Very dilapidated It will be entirely and substantially re built by and the driving of the piles for that purpose will be com menced in a few Mr Hudgins has leased the property far five with the privilege of retaining it for twenty The mill which he pro poses to erect Will be driven by a forty horse power furnished with a full supply of all the most improved ma chinery for cutting and will have si cuttingcapacity of ten thousand feet It is calculated that mill will be in operation by the latter part of Hudgins is a son of the head of the well known lumber firm of Tludgins This in order to meet the de mands of their larguly increased busi have been compelled to increase the capacity of their already largo saw mill west end of Bull For this purpose additional circular saw is about to be put in which will quire another engine of thnty or forty When this have been added tho mill will have a cutting capa city of feet per Hud gins hare also and arc about to put an improved selfacting edging machine for trimming and squar ing the edges of boards and other lum This machine is a recent inven and is said to he die first of the kind ever used in a South Carolina saw Brothers arc prepnr inoto roc liter the lumber busi and D with that intentionarc erecting a steam circular saw mill close by their famous rice at tire west endof Tradd This mill will be superintended by an experienced luuibcr a Northern man brought out expressly fur the will be furnishedwith all of the most improved and will have a cutting capacity of from ten to thousand feet Ife will by itv running orrTcrabout tho frrst erf All this sTrnws that the lumber trade of Churl1 is heavily on the nnd is confirmed by the reportsof other1 fumbor Thus John Stsinmeycr has recently thoroughly overhauled arid1 repaired Ms wellknown mill at the west end of IBeau which recommenced work on Monday last under new Stein meyer about

the same period of the two C previous an increase ol about twenty per over last year and eightyfour per over the year 1870 The following show the ex ports of lumber from the first of Sep to January 8th and the corresponding periods of the yenrs referred to r I 187273 1S7172 The total exports of lumber the year were aboufc feet if the increase for the remaining twothirds of the present year be in the same ratio as shown the exports for 187273 will reach the neighborhood of or double those of last But the foregoing repre senting only the not the home there do not give any adequate idea of the vast increase of the lumber trade of this I That the home consumption is now greatly in excess of any year since is practically shown by the much larger amount of and im provement now in progress on every There has also sprung within the last a considerable demand for lum ber in the sections of country contigu ous to the The price of lumber has naturally risen with the increase of the demand for that and is now higher lhan it has been at any time during tha last four Though the supply of tim ber is Adequate for present some fears are entertained for the It would therefore be well for timber cutters to bear these facts in and send down their stock before thcprcsent supply is A STHP IN RIGHT 1ioclaiiuition of President Grant Iloliling1 of January 1T the United Ordnr it has been brought to
