Sale of free Negroes in South Carolina. --The Charleston Mercury publishes a bill which is to be brought before the Legislature of South Carolina, proclaiming all free negroes to be slaves on and after the 1st of January, to be sold at public auction, and the proceeds to be applied to the tax funds of the various counties. The Mercury, however, accompanies its publication with the following remarks: We regard it as a measure harsh in its policy and wholly unrequired by the public exigencies, while it is mischievous in its effects, and remarkably ill-timed in its promulgation.-- The Legislature has something else to do besides the discussion of such topics as this, and we sincerely trust that, upon reflection, it will by tacit consent be consigned to the tomb of the Capulets. The measure must fall stillborn upon that body.

[Special Dispatch to the Richmond Dispatch.] No "Concessions" to be Made by the Republicans — The Special Committee a Farce — A Treasury Draft Dishonored, &c. Washington, Dec. 6.--The best authority reports that the Republican Senators held a us last night, and resolved to make no concession. Southern members pronounces the House Special committee a farce. There is not a representative man on it. The National Intelligencer of to-morrow comes out for a Convention of all the Southern States. A draft of the Clerk of the House on the Treasury for the Clerk of the House on the Treasury for $10,000, to pay its subordinates, has been dishonored. Sixty thousand dollars due the 1st of next January for pensions have been ordered not to be paid, unless the Treasury notes will be issued promptly. None of the clerks in the Departments will receive a dollar for their present month's services.

Brooke avenue. --Any one who has been upon this much-used thoroughfare since the 1st of January, will agree with us that its residents have good reason to complain of municipal neglect. It is a complete bed of mud, which never "dries up" during the winter months, and when summer comes the dust is intolerable. The Council, at very small expense, could have the avenue gravelled, which is all the improvement asked for by the citizens of that neighborhood. Gravel can be obtained in abundance near the Branch, and the city carts in a few weeks might spread it the entire length of the avenue. It seems to us that the proposition ought to commend itself to the Council, and we hope some public-spirited member will introduce it at the next meeting. Its adoption would conduce to the comfort, convenience, health and safety of a portion of our citizens, who have a right to expect some legislation for their benefit.
