FOOTPADS_On Tuesday night last, between the
hours of eleven and twelve, a young gentleman, on
hie way homeward, came up with three sailors at
the corner of St. Philip and Liberty streets. One
of the .. Toilers of the Sea" interrogated ' the late
land-lubber, " What ia the hour ?" " I should
like to know myself," was tho answer, "but I
have no veitch." Another of the triumvirate then
caught cit hy the throat, and there is no telling
what might have been the result, if the solitary
traveller had not cried out " murder, murder," bo
oro the sailor had well secured his grip. Windows
ere immediately opened in the vicinity, and the
thrtc adventurous tare took to their heels. Our
friend certainly had a narrow escape. Query:
Where was the police just about that time ?
THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT.-The "bill to estab

On the 19th of Decembor, 1865, eli physicians
were elected to fill the positions, afterwards as
signed to them by the City Registrar, placed in
charge of the Health Department by provisions o!
the bill, who, soon after, had published for gone
Tal information, a Directory, giving the bounda
Ties, location of Dispenaary or Office of Call o
each Health District, the name and location o
each Hospital, and the names and residences o
all the physicians of the Health Department.
The City Hospital had but lately been trans
ferred from the Roper Hospital building to tha
of the House of Correction. No provision hat
been made to put the buildings in repair, an
great inconvenienoe and discomfort were felt i
consequence, as the premises were in want of ex
tensive repairs and improvements', and ano!
measures were immediately resorted to as would
with the moana at command, put the institntio
in thorough and complete order. The a c comme
dations being found inadequate, additional ward
were oponed, as required, aomo of which are ei
tirely new, and will compare favorably with an
in the city.
Tbe hoHpit al can now accommodate two hu?

for the opening of additional wards should the

CHABLE8TON, 8. C, May 5, 1866.
Dear Mr. Editor-In looking over the latest
"royal edition" of WEBSTER'S Dictionary, I came
across an explanation of the term "Dixie", which
interested me so much I havo copied it for your
columns. I doubt if your readers are awake to
tho value of this volume of WEBSTEB; as, without
examination of its contenta.ono would.ecarcely be
lieve that a complete Encyclopaedia lies between
tho covers. I presume-without having made in
quiry-that it is to be found at all our larges t
Yours, very respectfully,
An imaginary place somewhere in the Southern
States of America, celebrated in a popular negro
melody as a perfect paradise of luxurious oatse
and enjoyment. Tho term la often used as a col
lective designation of the Southern States. A
correspondent of the "New Orleans Delta" hae
given the following account of the original and
early application of the name :
"I do not wish to spoil a pretty illusion: but ti?
real truth is that Dixie ia an indigenous Northers
negro refrain, as common to the writer as lamp
posts in New York oity seventy or eeventy-flv<
years ago. It was one of tho every-day allusiom
f of boya at that time, in all their out-door sports
. And no one ever heard of Dixie's Land beinf
other than Manhattan Island until recently, whei
1 it has been erroneously supposed to refer to thi
South, from its connection with pathetic, nqgn
allegory. When slavery existed in New York
one "Dixy" owned a large traot of land on Mau
1 battan island, and a large number of slaves. Ti?
1 increase of ti- slaves and the increase of tin
j Abolition sentiment caused an emigration of ti?
slaves to more thorough and secure elave sec
tiona; and the negroes who were thus sent oi
(manv being born there) naturally looked bael
h to their old homes, where they had 1 ved in dover
? with feelings of regret, as they could not imagim
I any place like Dixy's. Hence it bo -arno synoni
mona with an ideal locality combining ease, oom
fort, and material happiness of every description
In those days negro singing and minstrelsy wer
in their infancy, and any subject that could b
wrought into a ballad was eagerly picked up. Thi
was tue oase with "Dixie."' It originated in Net
York, and assumed t1 e proportions of a Boni
there. In its travels it has been enlarged, an
has "gathered moss." It has picked up a not
le here and there. A chorus has been added to ii
iy and, from an indistinct chant of two or thre
notes, it has beoomo an elaborate melody. 13u
the fact that it is not a Southern song cannot b
>> rubbed out. The fallacy is so popular to tho cor
a trary that I have thus been at pains to Btate th
real origin of it."

The world Is ao lnnndated now with medicines of
every description which are warranted cures for every
known and unknown species of disease, that the sufferer
finds It almost impossible to distinguish between good
and bad. Bono of these wonderful fluids profess to
cure every complaint known to the Materia Medica. In
speakltig of HOSTETTEU'S BITTERS, we refer to a prepara
tion which limits itself to one department of the body
the stomach-the Irregularities snd disorders of which
ltnot only claims to cure, but does. Its reputation has
become world-wide, and from the Paolflc to the Atlantlo,
in both h?misph?res, and lu every latitude and zone, it
Is known and employed as a remedlcal agent.
Persons who have boen repeatedly deceived, perhaps,
cannot be convinced that Hostetter's Bitters wUl effeol
mire, rapid, and permanent cures. But this assertion
Is confirmed by testimonial letters from the most dis
tlngulsbe? men lu the country. AU who have once
used these Bitters keep them now by their side as t
safegusrd, believing that "an ounce of prevention la bet
ter than a pound of oura."
The dlgeatlve organs which have been violated ant'
prostrated by excessive or irregular Indulgence of apps
tile, will be restored to their normal condition by Uti
use of this wonderful medicine.-Boston traveller.
