TUE WE?THEB has boen very hot the Iaet few
days. We do not know exactly what Mr. Fahren
heit eaid on the subject, having an innate aver
sion to take counsel of that gentleman, from a
vague and unaccountable idea that we always feel
heat or co'd more intonaely after looking at his
meter. Somo of our friends remarked to na that
on Sunday the tbornionietor waa ninety in the
ah ado at four P. M., which, if true, l8 quite re
specta-o for this tittie of year. Under tho opera
tions of the vortical raya of the Bun at ttiiB guage,
the slush and mud in Hing and Broad streets
and East Bay is boing rapidly converted into flue,
impalpable chut. The hot nights, we know from
our planting experience, are good for the growing
cotton, though wo should not like to base a cal
culation as to tho extent of the present crop on
such elonder data.
To return to the woather, however. It io cer
tainly very hot by day, aud tho musquitoes have
commenced to give their delightful serenades at
night. Soda water, ico cream and mosquito nota
are the only protection and relier under existing
METHODIST FATE.-The Committee of Arrange
ments aro requested to meet at the Hibernian
Hall at 5 P. M. this day. A full meeting is re
quested, and punctual attendance.
Uns*. MaVJon-Wo call attention to a very inter
esting be.r story, published in to-day's NEWS,
commuiiicfitud by one of our subscribers on the
Santoo. We had no idea our swamps wore in
habited by such huge denizens. Formerly there
were bears plenty in this State, but now it is very
seldom one ia met with. /
Tax REMAINS of Oapt. A. T. J. LACOSTE were at
tended to bia last resting place on yesterday after
noon by a large number of sympathising friends.
Oapt. LACOSTE was in the sixty-seventh year of
his age, and had been long known and esteemed
by our merchants and shipmasters. This city and
State must deplore his loss, for he had served
them in days of trouble with zeal and devotion.
REMOVAL.-Our readers will notice in another
column the announcement of Mr.P. H. KEGLEB.that
he has removed to his beautiful office in Broad
street. Mr. KE?LEI? is a banker of much popularity,
and an agent for some of the best Accident and Life
Insurance Companies. His connections with capi
talista placea lum in a position to offer most ad
vantageous terms to all who may favor him with
ACCIDENT AT SEA.-The brig C. TV. Ring, Capt.
SCOTT, sailed from this port with a cargo of lum
ber on Friday, the 18th hist., bound to Baltimore.
Nothing unusual occurred until Sunday, the 20th,
at 1,30 A. M., when tho brig was run into by the
steamship Emily B. Sonder, from Now York for
this port-the C. W. Ring losing her davit, bow
sprit, jibboon, top-gallant royal mast, had somo
of the stays iuj?ied, and sustained other damage ;
was taken in tow by the Souder, and brought to
this port. The acoident occurred by dead reckon
ing in about lat. 33.16, Ion. 78.12.
A TCBHJBQ STOB?.-The Bev. Professor J. W.
MILES, our readers will be pleased to leam, will
vary the usual routine of the bi-weekly Lectures at
the College Chapel to-night, by narrating a Turk
ish story, the materials of which were collected
during a residence of the lecturer at Constanti
nople. With the Professors' fine descriptive
powers, classic diction, sad faultleBS elocution,
this promises to be one of the greatest treats of
fered to our community in a long time ; and it is
quite unnecessary on our part to use any persua
sive power to induce our readers to go to hear the
BALE OF STOCKS AND BONDS.-Mr. I. S. K. BEN
NETT had a large and well attended sale of stooks,
bonds, ?fco., yesterday at the Exchange
Our quotations will show that good pricos were
obtained, and that the moneyed public are appre
ciating the valuable character of many of our se
curities. The following prices were obtained :
City Rix Por (Jests-$78 to $78.60.
State of South Carollua Old Bonds-$1A% to $76.
. O? Company Stock-$18.60 ser share.
South Carolina Railroad Hall Bhares- $33 por share.
The Northeastern Railroad Bonds not having
arrived by Express, were not offered.
Tms CONFEDERATK DKAD.-The meeting of the
Ladies* Association, advertised for yesterday af
ternoon, was held at tho Lutheran Church ii)
Arohdale-street at 6, P. M. A large number of
ladies were present. Bev. W_. B. YATES opened
the exorcises by reading a chapter from tho Biblo;
thon recapitulated what bad been done at the pre
vious meeting. He next introduced tho Rev. JOHN
?y. WIGHTMAN, who addressed the meeting in a
brief, eloquent and appropriate manner. Mr.
WIOHTMAN is a graceful and pleasing Bpeakor,
earnest and pathetic. His remarks were touob
' ing and eminently propor. He adduced examples
from Jewish and Roman history, to show tho ap
propriateness of the present association. Wo
would give a fuller report of his beautiful address,
if the crowded state of our columns did not for
bid. We hope to lay the spoeoh itself before our
readers in a day or two.
Bev. Mr. YATES stated'to the meeting that Rev.
Dr. BACBHAN waa prevented from being prosent
by attending a funeral, and Rev. 0. P. GADSOEN,
who had been announced as one of tho speakers
of the evening, was detained by being at the
deathbed of an old friend. '
Resolutions were read and adoptr-d that a Col
iocting (/Kimmittco of six And ft Yifitlng ?Commit .
tee of three bo appointed ; the former to solicit
contributions and subscriptions, the Utter to visit
?*Jso, that the press in the interior of tho State
be requested to lena their aid in furthering the
interests of ibia Association.
THE GEHMVN RONDAT SCHOOL PIO-NIC-The
German Evangelical Lutheran Church, corner
Aumin anti Hanoi streets, of which Rev. L. MUL
i.F.it is the pastor, has a largo and flourishing Sun
day 8chool connected with it. Mr. A. J. HOFF
MAN, a tendier, both by education and ninny
years* practical oxporionco, has charge of a Ano
largo Gorman Day School on Meeting stroet, and
is moreover at this time tho Superintendent of
the Sunday School mentioned abovo. The little
folks had been promisod th?'s " Landpartien" fur
some wcoks, and looked forward to Pfingstmonn
tag, tho appointed day, with cbild-liko impatiouce
and tho glowing anticipations usual on such oo
Whitsuntide, or Pentecost, is not much obsorved
in England, and still IOSB in America ; but in Ger
many it is otherwise. Both Catholics aud Pro
testants there eclobrato Pentecost Sunday as a
religious festival, and Monday in rural gatherings,
various amusomonte and parties of ploasnre. The
ancient Trojans, when exiled from their loved
Ilium, carried with them their household gods,
and bnilt a Pergamos on ; every coast they made.
So the Germans, though voluntary exiles, over
mindful of tho Vaterland, presorvo their native
language, customs and religion from goneratiou
to generation, wheresoever fitful tate has fixed
their lot. They bring with thom the sober, sim
ple, steady, frugal, houost and industrious habitB
of their Teuton home. They aro an acquisition,
therefore to any country, and aro every whero
welcome and well rccoivod.
But we must not pursue the theme farther at
this time, as thc-children aro all waiting, and aro
not particularly inttirested in questions of national
characteristic?. The pic-nic is at Mr. KAMLAH'S
Summer Retreat, on Payne's Farm, about two
milos from the heart of tho city. Tho procession
Btartod at 7 o'clock yesterday morning, corner
Market and Meoting streets. There ?.vero between
two and rhn-o hundred children and their sovcral
teacher* in this vanguard. Ladies and children
continued to cunio all through tho forenoon, and a
great many gentlemen arrived toward ovoning.
There were altogether from three to four hun
dred children, and perhaps as many adults, on the
pic-nic ground. ?.>
Tho scene was gay and lively. The place re
sounded with the merry voices of the children,
and looked bright from the happy, smiling coun
tenances, and many-colored ribbone and dresses of
the fair juveniles. Tho "Retreat" is well named,
and admirably adapted for marooning purposes.
The lawn is pleasantly shaded willi the fine large
pine, Iivo oak, tulip tree and ohina, and surround
ed with a dark glossy evergreen hedge. There
ia fine romping ground for the children, with
swings and every other appliance for tho promo
tion of healthy exercise and innocent amusement.
And that nothing may be wanting to form a per
fect landscape, water also lends its aid to tho em
bellishment of the scene,-making little inlets,
and affording the children the pleasant pastime of
watching tbo cunning performances of the minia
ture marine musicians. That Mr. KAMLAU is the
prince of good fellows and jolly landlords, needs
not our testimony. He and his good lady did
everything in their power to promote the comfort
and enjoyment of all present.
The commissariat was well attended to, and all
the arrangements efficient'; thanks to the labors
of the Committee-Messrs. JOHN OSTENDOBFF, A.
RIECHE and L. MOLLER. The violins, in tho skil
ful hands of the Mesera. ME?ER, were kept in con
stant requisition, and the floor of tho saloon nevor
had time to cool. We need not say that this was
the most popular of all the games and amuse
The young ladies extemporized a May party,
sent oil for a floral wreath, held an election, and
Miss EMMA HILBEBH WAS chosen Queen. Tho cer
emonies usual on such occasions were duly per
formed. Tho afternoon was varied by declamatory
oxcrciseB, reading and siriging, under the direc
tion of Mr. HOFFMAN. The mombera of the
SAENOKR BUND had been invited, and many of
them wore present assisting in the musical exer
There was plenty to eat, plenty to drink, the
nicest of icecream, manufactured on tho spot by
Mrs. KAMLAU,-and in short everything that
could be desired on such a jolly, rural merry
making ; and what is still better, the whole was
marked by ? spirit of love and friendly feeling ;
everything was so gemuthlich, it looked like a
THE BASE BALL CLUD,-Physical education is
moro neglected with us than either mental or
moral (however little we may have to boast in re
gard even to these). This has been said so often
that th.? remark is trite. Ita truth, however, no
one will dispute. The importance of systematic
healthy exercise to persons of sedentary or other
wine confining occupations, oannot be overrated.
When exercise, such as walking, riding, fencing,
dumb-bells, etc., etc., is engaged in as a duty, it
soon becomes irksome. The monotony of routine
makes it distasteful, and before long it passes
For this reason it is desirable that amusement
should be combined with exercise, /and more es
pecially that emulation should enter as one of the
elements in this recreation. Cricket, Bowling,
Base Ball, and other games of this kind, fill thooo
requirement?, and are, therefore, to be much
commended to our young mon of business-es
pecially during tho summer months, when nearly
all the stores are closed early in the afternoon.
Accordingly wo are pleased to learn that a Base
Ball Club has been formed,-the first of its kind
ever known in our city. To Messrs. WABDELL and
DANNY belongs the oredit of originating it. On
Saturday afternoon last they gave thoir .first pub
lio performance on tho Citadel Oreen. As might
bo expootod, tho players wore mostly "green"
hands, and tho sport waa Fenian theroforo in two
senses : "wearing of the Oreen." After a little
practice, most of the mombers will doubtless
make good players. There were many spectators
on the Oreen, who Boomed to enjoy tho sport quite
SB much as tho participants.
Tho Olub, wo understand, will play again at the
same place on Wednesday afternoon, and also on
Saturday afternoon. Wo hope to soo many such
clubs formed in our city; and doubt not that be
fore many months our " boya'- will be able to
ohallonge with confidence similar clubs in other
citiop, and have match games. It in a good move,
and we give it our heartiest good wlsheB.
THE APATAL080OPE.-Wo wero gratified yester
day by a view of this ingenious now optical instru
ment. It is tho invention of WM. L. PLATT, Eeq ,
of Anguila, G*. It looks Uko a telescopo, with a
portion of the centre of the tube detached. In
this contra! section wo have a smooth, flne-grain
od, polished brick (standing on end), which has
the ut ran KO property (paning strange and quite
unusual in a rospootablo brick) of being trans
parent. In othor words, hy looking through the
tube, you mav see anything placed in front of the
objeot glass, the intervening brick not withstand
ing. How it is done we do not pretend to under
stand. We never woro any "great shakos" at
Optics in our most sciontifio days, and have been
called to look through such variod and multifract
ed media these last fivo years that wo would not
trust our "optics" with an opinion on BO complex
Of ono thing wo fool sure, howovor, that this is
the voritublo instrument, so long a desideratum,
by maaiis of which you may "look through a mile
stone," as far as the next man; moro than that, it
is admirably adapted to enable you to look round
Tho Apataloscopo will bo exhibited at tho Fair
iii Hibernian HalJ, nnd wo hopo all our irionds
will avail themaclvoa of that opportunity to look
through the brick. As to the etymology and
meaning of its Ion- Ortok natue, wo would say,
that wo will enlighten any of our readers for the
consideration of ton conta in greenbacks,-if thoy
will call at tho NEWS office, this day, between the
hours of twelve and ono o'clock P. M. The pro
coode shall bo dovoted to the Trinity Church Fair.
BnuTAZ. MUBDEB.-Wo havo loarncd from a re
liable source, that a moat brutal murder waa por
potratod at Beaufort on Saturday evening last.
It appoars that two freedmen whilo walking tho
streets in that town, wero maliciously shot at by
' an individual who has been residing there but a
short time. Ono of tho frcedmon was mortally
wounded and diod a few momenta after being
The porpotrator of this deed was immediately
arrested, and is now confined in the jail of Beau
Tho Jury of inquest rotnrnod a vordict of willful
murder in accordance with the abovo facts. Wo
learn that the murderer was a native bf Now Jer
LETTEB FBOM FLOBIDA.-Wo have received a let
ter from a friend at Putnam County, East Florida,
from which wo make the following extract. It
gives a fair representation of the planting interest
in that section :
"We havo avery heavy cotton crop, which be
gins to look very promising. On our plantation,
whero there is 250 acres planted, a yield may be
expected, from tho present prospect, of over one
hundred bales, weighing thrco hundred pounds
each. Still, on somo of the places freo labor has
not done so well, somo having left, and at this
time cotton wants particular attention with the
hoe. Corn lias also boon planted largely, and the
stand ia good. Sugar cano looks about as well aa
formerly, and if tho weather continues as favora
bly na it has set in, there will bo a fino harvest
this Fall. The sweet potato never looked better."
TrrE^BAUaBOAD CONVENTION.-The Richmond
Examiner of Friday snye: "The Railroad Conven
tion, composed of the Presidents, Superintendent?',
and othor officials of the Southern Railroads,
opened the second day's sesaion yesterday at 10
A. M., in the Ladies' Ordinary of the Spotswood.
President, Colonol WILLIAM JOHNSON, President of
the Charlotte and South Carolina Railroad, in the
Chair; Messrs. FITCH and OHIO Secretaries.
The Convention finally, after a thorough dis
cussion of the system, adopted a resolution re
solving upon a system of through tickets and
close connections from New Orleans, North, to
Now York, and all important intermediate
points, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and South
through Richmond, Raleigh, Charlotte, Savan
nah, Charleston, Augusta, Macon, Atlanta and
Mobile. Resolutions and schedules wero adopted
for the instruction and guidance of the roads in
carrying out the action of the Convention, which,
at 2. P. M., took a recess until 5 P. M. At the
appointed hour tho Convention resumed, the only
business before it being the devisement and
adoption of a system of through checks to accom
pany the through tickets, and the mode of sottie
mont with the clearing houses. This waa satis
factorily accomplished, we understand, and the
members of tho body, after a harmonious ses
sion of two days, adjourned sine die."
Wo consider the rosults that are expected to
flow from the action of the convention will bo
moat important in their influences upon trade and
travel. Tho advantages may not bo perceived
immetliatoly, but so soon as the new system gets
into easy working order the stupendous advan
tages will begin to be seen and appreciated.
Wc congratulate the Southern country upon tho
important action of the Sonthern Railroad Com
panies. With the luxurious sleeping cars ot the
Southern Transportation Company, two or more
of wl ich are now running upon three or four of
the more extended Southern roads, the advau
tagea\of the now through ticket syatem, adopted
by tbo convention, are greatly enhanced.

tionalist, has succeeded Mr. WM. H. PBITCHABD as
