EXPLOSION or A TORPEDO -On Thursday morning last,
about 6 o'clock, an explosion of a torpedo took place off
the beach of Sullivan's leland, near Battery Bee, in about
eight fathoms of water. The canse of tho explosion was
supposed to be in consequence of the cable of a vet sel
at anchor in the neighborhood coming into contact with
the aunktn war et glne. Thc explosion waa seen from
the city by tome naval officers and others, and these
observers supposed that thevesrel near by had beer
sunk. The water was lifted in an immense volume, and
presented quite a grand sight. The torpedo his been
sunk about three years ?md one month, and has cert.in?
ly preter ved ita powers of explosion under water with
YOUTHFUL Canns ALS. -Officers DAVIS and CALDWELL
succeeded on Tuesday in arresting four youths, who are
old offenders, and who had committed a burglary on the
previous Saturday night and placing them tn jail. On
the night mentioned, these young scamps broke into
the store of Mr. J. H. Hyer, at the corner of Percy sud
Bogard streets, and robbed it of groceries, shoes, bats,
ftc, to a ct naide rab le extent They at first eluded
the officers by jumping from a window of a houao in
which they were, but were followed up by the energetic
officers to whom the case was entrusted, and captured.
The moat of the gcods have been recovered, yet we hope
these bojB will be made an example of. Their namea
are H. Weatherhoni. J. Rantin. B. F. Leman and J. H.
L. Smith. The latter seriously injured bis knee by
jumping lrom the window.
HENEY M. BRUNS, LLD.-Wo were pleased to learn,
a few days ago, that this gentleman had returned to ocr
city, after an absence of over four years. Dr. BRUNS ls
a Charlestonian of the old school-and all our readers
know what is comprehended iu that term. He was for
mai.y years Principal of the Charleston High School,
where ho prepared many of our citizens-men of busi?
ness, and of the learned professions-tor au intelligent
discbarge of tho varied duties of Ufa Dr. Bi uns has for
years enjoyed the reputation of a fine and finished
acholar, as well as that of on apt and <horongh instruc?
tor. He has ever been a gr? at favorite, both with boys
and their guardians. Such concurrent esteem and
affection is rarely met with, and con only be secured by
a good teacher, who must, at tho same time, unite the
qualities c f tho Christ ian gentleman.
It is tho wiBb of a number of our citizens, we under?
stand (provided it be agreeable to Dr. Bruns himself),
that he should open a select school for boj s of an ad?
vanced grade, or that his services be secured in some
other form in the cause of education. Good teachers
are rare, and we cannot afford to allow talents like those
of Dr. Bruns to he idle.
