CHARLESTON FIRE DEPARTMENT.
The groat Annual Parado of tho Charleston Fire
Department came off yesterday, according to pre
vious announcement. For weeks the Firemen had
been making the most onergotio preparations,
burnishing onginee, and oloaning hose and hoso
carriages. Tho tailors and saddlers all were kept
busily employed in tho manufacturo of new hate
and uniforma. As the great day drew noarer, the
oxcitemont beoame more and moro intenae. Nor
wore the flremon alono in this fooling; bnt it was
largely Bhared by all tboir friends and acquaint
ances, and particularly by nearly every lady in tho
city. Some of tho latter had boon baslly engaged
for many days making wreaths, garlands, ohap
lets, festoons and pyramids, to adorn the angines
of thoir choice. Tho groatost enthusiasm pervad
ed the ontiro commnnity yosterday, and expecta
tion was on tiptoe throughout the morning.
There were several adventitious circumstances
that lont additional interest to this anniversary.
There had been no Bremen's celebration in seve
ral years; two handsome steam enginos had been
recently introduced; the delegation from onr
sister State, that had honored us with their
presenco, was another interesting foaturo. There
were aleo a large number of recent members, who
entered into the enjoymont of thiB festival with
tho foil zeBt of buoyant yontb. Tho two prizo
cups wero another incitement; and lastly, this
was tho first genoral gala day wo have had in the
city since tho close of the war.
Fortunately the weather was very fair, and, al
though the sun ponred his rays with considerable
intensity about meridian, the temperature was
rather below tho average of the season. There
was still oonBiderablo wind, though not as much
as during the several days preooding; and, on the
whole, we think tho weather was as pleasant as at
any previous anniversary.
THE TOADIES AND THE FLOWEHB.
At an early hour yesterday morning, Aromen
were seen harrying through the streets, loaded
with wreaths and bouquets of the most beautiful
flowers. Flora was profuse in her odoriferous
gifts, affording as a delioioas antepast of bloom
ing Hay. The engines all were beautifully decora
ted, pleasing proof that fair hands and a refined
taste assisted in their arrangement.
About eleven o'clock, oar fairest flowers made
their appearance,?tho ludios could be seen com
ing from the remotest parts of the city, toward
the leading points along the line of march. Doors
and windows along Mooting and Broad street?
were in great demand. Every available ni oh o was
adorned by a saint or angel. Tho verandah at the
Charleston Hotol, the steps and portico of the
Market Hall, and the windows of the Council
Chamber, reminded ris of the good old days, when
Fourth of Julye, and Military and Firo Parades,
drew forth tho boauty and fashion of our olty.
The eoene yesterday was gay and attractive in the
extreme. The etreets wero Uned wUh. beaatiioj
ladies, arrayed in all the rich plumage of the
spring mode; and smiling sweetly, and gontlj
excited with hopo and expectation, as they lookec
op the street, a little impatiently, wondering
"why the engines don't make haste and come." ,
A little after 12 M. the several companies hav
ing assembled on the Citadel Oreen, they tool
their placea oooording to programme, and th<
procession started down Meeting street.
First in order oame a vanguard of tho 6 th U. S
Begt?ars, kindly farnished by Gen. Sickles. Th<
large and splendid band, attached to this rogi
ment,. were in attendance, adding mach to th<
interest and pleasure of the occasion. A TJnitec
States officer, accompanied by a Lieutenant of tin
City Police, rode next.
The Chief, Assistant?, and Clerk of tho Board
of Fire Masters, all dressed in handsome uni
forms, oame next in order; and were followed bj
his Honor the Mayor, and the Board of Alder
men. [We missed the time-honored wands o
office, heretofore borne by these functionaries
Why have they been discarded ? or did these von
?rable batons perish by the viscisaitudoB of war
like so many other of oar ancient institutions?
The Geoboia Independent Fibs Company, o
Augusta, now came with their engine. The:
paraded about fifty men, and made a very hand

Geo. W. Bboadhubst, Secretary and Treasurer
J. E. P. MoLauoblin, Pipeman, and J. Glen*

The /Etna Steam Engine Company counted
about fifty men. Tho appesranoe of "Little Ned "
was gay and beautiful, almost smothered in a sea
of living greou. The banner announced "We'll

its motto: "Ne cede malts." A bower was erected

inscription : 2b our Departed Brothers." The

and found the Hall orowded. Tho scone was one
of groat splendor and dazzling brilliancy. Largo
as was tho number of uniformed firemen
present, the number of ladies was greater
still. Mulleb's Band was engaged, and
struck up the over-welcome strains of tho Lanctra.
Sots woro made up instantor, and in loss than no

then turn about; then stop awhile, and take
breath. AU seemed to enjoy themselves ; and
seeing this, wo were infected by tho atmosphere
of tho place, and enjoyed ourselves.
The supper was served about twelve o'clock.
Tho lower hall was ongagod for this purpose, and
five long tables were spread, under tho direction
of that prince of landlords, Mr. Pobcelc, of tho
Mills House.. Wo will not enter into particulars
on so prosy a subject as the dainties and substan
tiate of the table. Nor is it necessary. When we
have named the caterer, our readers naturally
will infer all th? balance. Isaac Bobinson and his
polite and attentive staff deserve the thanke of
tho company for their services.
Affairs on the Mexican Border?
Tho affairs on the Mexican border along tho Bio
Grande, are still in a disturbed condition. Stages
running from Bagdad to Matamoras are stopped
and the passengers robbed and murdered; all com
munication with the interior is cut off, and soaroe
ly a day passes in whioh somebody is not found
on whioh tho ruffians have done their bloody work.
The leaders of these bands of plnndorers and out
laws are from the United State? and Mexico. All
business is suspended Id this section, and the
land is suffered to run to waste for want of culti
vation, while the roving bands of marauders sub
sist upon what tboy can pick up from ?Ufth?e.
travellere who fall iu their vfa?.
' General M^.v commands tho Imperial forcea,
consisting of French and Austrian troops, at Mat

his Authority to pacify tho country and punish the
men who. are did. urbing it. The town is ettongrj

two hundred troops, and preserves a strict neu
trality. The arms and other articles taken from
Bagdad when that place was captured by Uni
ted States colored troops, have been returned tc
their proper owners, so far as such a course wai
possible. At a ball recently given in Matamoras
invitations were extended by French offlcen
to those of tho United States forces. They wer<
accepted, and the courtesies thus extended anc
accepted have produced happy results in allaylnf
whatever feeling oxisted growing out of the Bag

the Bio Grande. It does not give hopes of ai
early reign of peace and quiet in that region.

LETTBB raou a contested abolitionist.
The rChioago Time?, of the 16th, publishes i
letter from a converted Abolitionist, residing ii
Vioksburg, Mississippi, the larger portion of wbicl
we copy, as follows :
Before coming South I was a staunch believer ii
?11 thoso ridiculous reports, gotten up by unprin
cipled politicians, in regard to the disloyalty c
the Southern people, and I openly urged the rigii
polioy that is urged by Stevens, Summer & Cc
But in justice to a brave .and noble people I wil
say that I have utterly failed to discover tbi
muoh talked-of-treaaon. On the contrary, I hav
found a universal desire for poace and union. I con
fess that on arriving here I cberiehed all the prel
udices of a true Badioal towardethese down-troa
den people, but my opinion has undergone a
entire chango, and 1 am now fully convinced o
the gross wrongs that have been heaped upoi
them by the unmerciful party now in power,
'hopo this unjust treatment of a brave but falle
foe may ceaBe forever?that the reports gotten u
by political demagogues, who employ their pon i
fabricating falsehoods of the deepest dye, may n
longer deceive tho Northern mind concerning a
fairs in tho Southern State?. They are all false
only intended to continue the dominant party i
power. . Y7r
It is tho great dedfre of the Southern peoplo t
bury tho dark deods of the past four years, an
meot the Northern people with ronowed lovi
With tbls feeling existing in their bosoms, is it nt
a burning shame that they are daily subjected t
the most galling insults from a party who woul
gladly neo thorn deprived of every vestige of froi
dorn ? I ask tho Northern people, how is it pose
ble fpr a people, after undergoing all the horroi
?f ? war of plunder, should lend their aid-to
Government whioh seeks to degrade aud onala\
them? It is au impossibility, and, if persisted ii
will, before long, create an undying hatred bi
tween the two sections. Let any other course I
pursued, and a kind, brotherly feeling will oprin
up at once.
The expressions of hatred and deep revengo'tbi
daily ascend from the halls of Congress to hig
hoaveu only tend to increase the wounds of tt
nation. In the name of God, then, let those wl
represent the people in our National Legislatui
coase their persecution?, find turn thoir attontic
to the development of tho resources or our v?
country. Bemove the scourge? that now opprei
the annoy South, and her desolated fields woul
be made to blossom as the rose.
Could Mr. Stevens or some of his disciples ha?
attended a mass meeting held here a short tin
RRO, in indorsement or the polioy pursued 1
Presideut Johnson. I think they would bo le
abusive of tho South in the future. The spoeohi
made were by Southern orators to a Southei
audience. I failed to hear one word that breath)
the spirit of disloyalty. After a few remarks fro
the President, explanatory of the meeting, Ho
Walker Brooke, formerly United States Senat
from this 8tato, was introduced to tho aasomb)
Soon bis volca filled tho hall, nod could the not
sentiments ho expressed have roachod tho halls
of Congress, the political "thugs," whose presence
thero disgraco tho memory of our forofathors,
would have been made to blush with shame at
their own perfidy. Mr. Brooke's remarks con
vinced mo of hie great powers as a profound
statesman. I had tho honor of hearing his eulogy
on tho death of Henry Clsy, delivered before the
United btates Senate. A few moro such men as
Mr. Brooke could do more to calm the turbulent
sea of political discord that now exists than a
thousand such vulgar demagogues aa now dis
grace our eoat of Government.

only intended to continuo tbonieolvea in office.

wish, for the benefit of our whole country, that

real state of affairs as myself.
Fashions for April.
Le Follet for April says : The law of fashion
with regard to tho make of drees, Booms now es
tablished in a very decided mannor. It is quito
inadmissible for any dress to be made with plaits
all round tbo waist; tho front and sides, at any
rate, must be plain. There are, however, two
Btyles in vogue, the PrincesBO and the fourreau.
For most figures we givo tho preference to the
former, which has one largo plait at the bach;
while tho second in entirely on the bias, like a
long casaque, and i-> certainly less graceful, thoro
boing nothing to mark the waist; the fourreau ?b,
therefore, lese becoming than tho Princesao. For
both atyle8 the long train is necessary. The sizo
of the crinoline i? very sensibly diminished, but it
cannot be altogether disponssd with whilst tho
drosses aro so very long. Nothing can sustain
them so well as tho case, though that may bo of
very small dimensions.
The fashion also of looping dresses up over tho
petticoats, out of doors, whion will certainly con
tinue through the summer, render the crinoline
indispensable, in order to sustain them gracofally.
Tho simple spring dresses will not be much
trivamo??pattes or lozengos, or eilk pipings, will
be all the ornament?but for richer materials the
various passementeiie will be in requisition. By
passementerie, our readers most understand not
the gimp of former days merely, bnt silk cord,
mixed with gold, cameos, fringes, crystal jet, and
mother-of-pearl pendants in endless variety.
The rage for Olany lace has produced many
pretty white betiste and muslin bodies trimmed
with it, and for small reunions they are muoh
spoken of; bnt it must be said that black lace ie
preferable for evening wear, excepting, perhaps,
for young ladies. They are mado with baaquiuea
of wide lace, and, if desired, a sash or band may
be worn over them; but they are always high,
and sometimes made open a little way down the
As to sleeves, when worn at all. thsy are quite
email and straight, with an insertion up the seam
bat these casaques are as frequently made with*
oat as with sleeves. Of course this depends upor
the taste of the woarer.
The Pamela or Lambalie.as it has been christen
ed at the French Court, is the vogue at present,
but will have to submit to various niodific-aAiout
before it can become universal; for, becoming at
it may be to a young face, yet, as all are nol

The fltrap of ribbon or barb of lace forming tin
