CHARLESTON, October 20,1870.
S Our "City by ihe Sea/' nevor spar
led moro brightly io the Autumu suu
hino Ihao during those passing ploas
Dt October days. Thc rough freck
es left on hor fuir face by tho hard?
tops, of war have yielded in a great
,?asure 10 the emollient influences of
enco ; the tattered dress of 1804 and
865 has been patched and painted Into
sembfanee of the old taste and neat
? and there is an elasticity in her
strides as sho moves forward on her
prosperous earcor, that tells o? reoupcr
?ting health eud power.
There aro a certain class of peoplo
you know, who, Irishman like, are al
trays' for crossing a bridge before they
come to it-chronic grumblers who look
nt the world through the groou gogglos
of melancholy, and imagine it to bo eu
route for perdition at locomotivo speed.
Charleston has her slime of this dilapi?
dated crop, but when the cyo of com?
mon scii.se looks around tho city-and
.sccs the signs of trade-secs wholesale es?
tablishments stocked with ovcry variety
of goods in demand; stores filled with
retail buyers, aud merchants from the
country pencil in hand checking off

S dauccs of prosperity, it is impossible
not to be encouraged, und to feel that
j? we ure on tho high road to prosperity,
" the diseased croakers to tho contrary
True, money is a little tight just
\ now, and he who wants to borrow tho
filthy lucre must needs pay nu unusual
discount ; but then you know cotton is
down ; thc factors arc carrying all they
dure ; and planters aro holdiug back
for better prices. The real business of
the year hus not fairly commended nor
will it do so, until thc estimated three
millions ol bales arc on thc mil and on the
steamship hurrying to unlock the cof?
fers of thc world and secure for tho
. South its annual treasure.
Thc winter season opens gaily . Our
Academy of Musio-one of the most
elegant and commodous theatrical struc?
tures in the Southern country-has
boon leased by Laura Keeuc, the well
. known New York actress and manage?
ress'; and Iliborniau Hull is already
nightly occupied by travelling troupes of
one kind and another. Wc'arc promised
tho presence during thc winter, of souie
ol'thc brightest dramatic stars of the
country, and those who have not seen
Kdwtn Forrest, thc tragedian, and Joe
Jefferson, thc i!ip Van Winkle of the
world, will doubtless httVO un opportu?
nity to do so.
The Fuir of the State Agricultural
Society to bc held here thc first week in
November will doubtless bc an event
of usual interest. Largo sums of mono)'
ure being expended in preparations; a
great building covering a large area of
ground has been creetcd on thc old rnco
course und premiums sill bc distributed
to tho amount of ten thousand dollurs
for tho best .'exhibition of machinery
productions of agriculture, manufactures
nnd art of every kind. Twenty fiv
thousand visitors arc oxpootod and ar
range m ont s are being made for their
euturiniimiciit, Tho railroads will
bring visit?la free and-and char?
thom only int thc return. Very fine
racing s*tock is expected lo bc present,
Ithd wo shah probably have a renewal ol
thc old lime competition which has
made >ho Charleston track famous
the sporting circles of the country.
As a matter of prudence, it will bc
advisable foi' visitors lo secure accom?
modations in nd vaneo by applying to
one oribe other of tho hotels, Messrs.
J'arkrr & Pond, the proprietors nf the
Mills House, have jual completed extra

State Legislature. If, aa ia estimated,
forty CooeervaUye aW ?otelHgeai mgan
ber? have beca elected by Cb? Reform
party, they .will constitute ? sufficient
minority to check in a'great measure
the designs of extreme Radicals, nnd
oppose the ignorance sod corruption
which has brought the legislation of
South Carolin? into disgrace. The
official result will not be known for at
least ton days, and -even the? it may be
materially modified by tho% rascalities
which occurred at roany of the polls and
have become the subject of protest -
The Radicals claim three colored mern,
bera of Congress. The oonduct at the
ballot boxes on many of the Islands was
decidedly loose. At more than one
precinct negro women tuted for their
husbands, snd their husbands voted
somewhere else. Boys under1 age also
voted, while in a soore of places armed
bodies of blacks prevented others of
their raoe from casting ballots for the
opposition. It is proper to add, however,
that where such scenes oocurrod there
were not more than five or ten white
lycn against ns many hundred negroes,
and resistance was therefore useless.
lu Charleston, the day was as peaceful
as if it were a Sunday.
Tho tWo of travel appears to have
fairly commenced. Tho pleasure and

from their usual European tour, seom
already to have selected the South ss

Florida and portions of Georgia are
likewise sending many merchants, who
find a cheap and convenient market
here. Tho fact is, nearly al) of our job
bo rs, by reason of increased steamship
facilities, can sell goods as cheaply, if
not cheaper than they can bo bought, in
New York,and this Fall especially they
have prepared themselves for a large
trade. As an illustration, Mr. Edward
Perry, tho Stationer and Bookseller, cn
Meeting Street, has a stock of School
Literature, embracing almost every
publication iu use, an assortment of
paper, office stationery, law books and
law blanks, pens, inks, and an array of
patent contrivances for school boys and
counting house clerks, suoh as never
before was introduced ?uto Charleston.
In fact, one can sea. eely enter the es?
tablishment without seeing something
he had not thought of, and which being
seen, becomes a necessity. The tempta?
tion to load one's self down with these
useful novelties is almost irresistible.
Tho result is that such a barge and
miscellaneous assortment naturally at?
tracts thc country merchant, who can
thus obtain in half an hour that which
it would probably occupy a half a day to
seek out aud purchase in tho city of New
York. It is enterprise of this sort
which constitutes the truo philosophy
of business success, because it keeps
busiuess and money at homo.

About three weeks ago, there passed
>vcr Fort Sully a terrible thunder storm
md in it old Yellow Hawk, nu Indiun

Smith, the colored West Point ca?
det, ia undergoing the procesa of a court
martial "for eonduot prejudicial to good
order and military discipline," and "for
eonduot unbecoming an officer and a
gentleman/' The sp?cifications show
that Smith "did create a disturbance in
camp," "did assault" a fellow cadet
"with hie dipper and fist," and did sub?
mit a false statement in writing to the
commandant. O. O. HOWARD, of freed?
man's Burean notoriety, is President of
the Court, and yat the conviction of tho
negro on all the charges is confidently
expected. He will probably be expelled.

DisrrtmiANCB AT MARION.
The Marion Cresent, of the 2Gth ult.
jives the following account of the dis
Lurbanoo at that placo on the pacccding
Sa? Wa 7 :
On Saturday night last our commu?
nty was disturbed by the most noisy
tod dangerous riot that has ever occur?
red here. At tbo eleotion n few color?
id men voted tho Reform ticket. Those
,vho did it openly, were, at the time,
tubjocted to a storm of abnse and ridi
>ule. Sinoa ?he elootioo they have had
10 peaoe, but have, from day to day,
>een compelled to run a gauntlet of
persecution. On Saturday night this
itate of things culminated in an attack
ipon Jas. Smott, n mun who formerly
belonged to A. J. Shaw, Esq., Solicitor
)f this District, and who is still iu the
employ of his former master. Mr. W.
?. Dickson, one of our most quiet and
vorthy citizens, was in at Mr. Crawford's
grocery making some purchases. Upon
iluniog home, James, tbe coloied man
>pokeu of above, politely ofiered to
issist him in oharryiog" home his pur
disses. Tho offer waa accepted, and as
hey went along they were preceded
>y several colored .men, and closely fol
owed by several ot Vers. James, seeing
hera, expressed to Mr. Dieksou the
cur they were going to attaok him. A
11 omen t after Mr Dickson beard some
uissile whiz: by hrs head, and immedi
kiely the assailants were upon them.
IMiey told Mr. Dickson that Jim had
old his vote to the Reformers, and they
vero going to kill him. Mr. Dickson
cmonstratcd and begged them not to
emmit murder, trying ut thc same time
o get Jim out of tho wuy. Suddenly
io heard a blow and a groan and tho
?cor man clung to bim and begged him
0 protect him and save his lite. Mr. D.
old Jim he had nothing to protect him
rith, and told him to ruu for his life,
'liich he did. Just at this moment a
?stol shoe was fired by some of thc
row J, nod with a terrific yell thc whole
aug pursued thc object ol' their ven
All this occurred in front of thc
resby terian church. By the lime
tey reached Mr Muuhiom's storo they
ad struck Jim nbout the head twice
id considerably bloodied him. Ile

To give an ide? haw tho thing is done
we copy the following from tho Mem?
phis Avalanche, of the 15th instant,
describing a baby show recently held in
that city:. ,y
After nurses sod babies had all been
collected in rear of judges' stand, the
seoretary called them into the arena in
the order in which they had been enter?
ed, and the babies belougiog to tho twen?
ty seven ladies were carried into the
riDg for the inspection of the bachelor
judges. Hanged in front of the north?
ern grand stand stood the nurses, with
their little oharges in their arms or in
petite carriages, and the sight was a
peculiar ono. There were babies of all
kinds, ar.d cf all ages, that is to say, of
all months uuder twelve, for Wheeler,
Dickens & (Jo-, in presenting the beau?
tiful little perambulator, had distinctly
bargained that it should bo presented
"to the Arrest-baby under one year old on
exhibition at this fair." Tho blue eyed
blonds wero iu the majority, although
there were many brunetts, dark oolored
and placid. The boys seemed to be
livelier than the girls, and laughed and
"crowed" in a manner that was delight?
ful to behold. Tho mamas tried every
subterfuge to make their babies smile,
laugh and crow, aud sundry couifi's and
cakes were called into requisition. Ono
blue eyed Iud of about ten months wus
very attractive, and his efforts to swal?
low a scarlet worsted bull four inches in
diameter excited universal admiration.
The task of the judges was no ordinary
one, but they faced the music like mes,
and gazed the juveniles nearly out of
countenance while examiuing their
"points." Heath, strength, ..heft" and
good looks were all taken into account,
und the judges moved silently aud stead
ily along thu lino, their every motion
and every word being eagerly watched
by nurse, pupa and mama. Some of the
babies started at tho portly ligure of
Mr. Hamilton as he marched at thc
head of his forces, and looked as if they
had a slight glimmering of what it was
all about, and they looked up smilingly
whilo others presented sombre fucos,
wi:h tears iu theiroyse und their mouths
all a pout. It was indeed un interesting
sight, and many broke through the rope
guards and eagerly rushed iuto thc riug
us if to look upon a baby was not an
every day occurrence. After the judges
bat carefully scanned the groups they
retired for consultation, and then order?
ed tho following babies, according to
nuraberslas given above, to be separated
from the geuerol group : Nos. 8, 4, G,
19, 25 and 26, belonging respectively
to Mrs. J. 0. Johnson, Mrs. H. W.
Aiuslie, Mrs. John Mitchell, Mrs. L.
McGuire, Mrs. C. II. Cavan sud Mrs.
Joseph Musso. Thc Judges took another
fond look at the fortunate half dozen
and again retired for consultation. They
seemed to have nearly all agreed on
the same buby, for the consultation was
brief, and Dr. Perkins, the superintend?
ent of the orena, came forward, took
little Alary Ainslie in his arms, attach?
ed to her righi arm the blue ribbon,
placed her iu tho prize baby carriage,
ind Coloucl J. 0. Dallent ine, grand
marshal, gallantly wheeled the lucky lit?
le lady around the arena amid the hus?
sars ol the assembled multitude, whilo
;ho unlucky babies were carried solemnly
>ut of the ring. After the prize baby
lind becu shown all atound, it was taken
in front of the grand stand, but thc
loise around proved too much for its
nerves, and the grand marshal and his
issistant shouted lustily for tho nurse.
So ended this great baby show of thc

For restoring Gray Hair to
its natural Vitality and Color.
A dressing which
is at onoe agreeable,
healthy, and effectual
for preserving the
hair. Faded or gray
hair is soon restored
to its original color,
with the gloss and
freshness of youth.
Thin hair is thick?
ened, falling hair checked, and bald?
ness often, though not always, eared
by its use. Nothing can restore the
hair where tho follicles are destroyed,
or the glands atrophied aod decayed.
But euch as romain can bo saved for
usefulness by this application. Instead
of fouling too hair with a nasty sedi?
ment, it will koop it olean ana vigorous.
Its occasional uso will prevont tho hair
from turning gray or falling off, and
consequently prevent baldness. Free
from those deleterious substances which
moke Bomo preparations dangerous, and
injurious to tho hair, the Vigor can
only benefit but not harm it. If wanted
merely for a
nothing else can be found so desirable.
Containing noithor oil nor dye, it does
not soil white oambrio, and yet lasts
long on tho hair, giving it a rion, glossy
lustre and a grateful perfume.
