C., was, among other enactment!, by the second section of that act, authorised as follows: "And be it further enacted, ( hat tbe siid Corporation shall have full power and authority to Introduce into said town a supply of water, for the use of the Inhabitants thereof, and to cause the streets, ian^s and alleys, or any of them, or any portion of any of them, to be lighted by tj is or otherwise, and to provide for the expense or any such works or improvements either by a special tax cr out of its Corpora'ion funds annually, or both, at Its discretion." Under this authority, bv an ordinance approved November 1.5th. tne f*orp?.ration appointed a committee to contract with the Georgetown Gas I.iuht Coninanv for thp r^tinn of lamp posts on tbe strette of tbe town, and ligbt the same with gas. and levied a tax of seven cents on tbe bandred dollars on tbe assessment of tbe town to meet tbe expense of lighting- Under that ordlnauce the committee bad put up and li^Lt-d seventy-four posts, and the following summer increased tbf posts to ninety-eight, and in lb58 lu.- o Duuihuum iaui)jn were ugniea. ana iDe tax increased to ten cents on '.he hundred dollars, and In 1353 forty-two additional lamps were lighted, making the number one hundred and eighty-two, and the tax still remaining at ten cento; this left a large balance for gas light unprovided for. In view of this state of things, the committee of w*ys and meant, in le?U recommended a reduction of tbe expense of lighting the town, and under that recommendation the Corporation subsequently entered Into a contract with the On? Compinv to liynt, extinguish and clean public lamps and furnish gas at a fixed price per post per annum, greatly reducing the expense, and levied the pr?ren.t tax of fifteen cents un the hundred dollars, which, by a calculation then made, will in three years?say ItCO, '61 and !/ > I- ?

In lighting up the town at tbe least possible expense, tbey have endeavored to bestow "the greatest good to the greatest number," and If any citizen of the town, by reason of his locality, has not a lamp |>ost at ills door, he hes nevertheless, when walking abroad on errands of business or pl?asure, the enjoyment of light shed on his pathway on all tbe public thoroughfares of the town, and he rnitfht with as much nmnrUi. t- r ? r'v ? object to the tax on hi* property for auy of the outside expenses of the town, the expense for the crossings of the streets, and the opening or improving the channel in the river, because bis property does not connect with, or is not bounded iiy such improvements. Your committee therefore, cannot recommend any action of the Corporation on the petitions referred to them, and ask to be discharged from any further consideration of the same.

Hostilities for the present have ceased, and victory belongs to South Carolina, with a display of a flag of truce on the ramparts of Fort Sumter. At half-past one o'clock the firing ceased, and an unconditional surrender was made The Carolinians had no idea that the war was at an end o soon. After the flag-stiff of Major Anderson was shot awav, Col Wlirfall. aid to Gen. Beauregard, at his commander's# request, went to Fort Sumter, with a white flag, to ofler assistance in extinguishing the flames He approached the burnt ng fortress from Morris Island, and, while the flre was raging on all sides, effected a landing at Fort Sumter. Heapproacht-d a porthole, and ?:?? met by Major Anderson, who said he had just displayed a white flag;. but that the firing from the South Carolina b;?tterie?uas nevertheless kept up Col. Wlyfall replied that Major Anderson must haul down the American that no parley would be granted; and that surrender or fight" was the word Maj Anderson then hauled down his flig. displayed over that of the truce, when all tiring instantly ceased, and two others of General Heauregard's staff, ex Senator Cbemnut and exGov. Manning, came over In a boat, and stipulatoil with M 4 1 ? J * * . v. rtimrisuu hjciv ui? urrcuutTiuoiua bo unconditional for the present, subject to tLe terms of Gen Beauregard. Mnjor Anderson was allowed to remain with his tutu in actual possession of the fort, while Messrs. Ohesnut and Manning came over to the city, ar.com panied by a lumber of the Palmetto Guards. These were met at the Pier by hundreds of citizens, and as tbey inarcbea up tbe street to tbe General's quarters the crowd was swelled to thousands S*bout? rent the air, and the wildest joy was manifested on account of the welcome tidings.

Simmons replied that il 110 hostilities were attempted during the night, and no ett'crt was made to reinforce or retake For! Sumter, he would give an answer at n^n- o'clock on Sunday morning. The officer signified that he was satisfied with this, and returned. A number of citizens, accompanied by the of ncers 01 ijenerai iseauregaru s stuff, paid a visil to Fort Suinter. Moiie but tbe otlicers were al lowed to land. They went down in a ateamer, and carried three'ire engines for the purpose ol putting out the fla-nes.

Tbe visitors report that JHajor Anderson surrendered because his quarters and barracks were destroyed, and necnuse he bad no hope of reinforcements.
