Dn. H. Wa GUIDES, fcr., of Columbia, paid a viuii
to our Bauctuni yesterday, and we wore pleased to
find him look ao halo and hearty. Ho ia ouo of
the favored fovv on whom advancing yoara ait
lightly and gracefully.
REV. JAMES II. CUTUIIEHT.-By tho South Caro

CONFEDERATE DEAD.-Wo call attention to the
advertisement in another column, headed "Prom
enadc Entertainment;" in wliich our readers will
bo informed, tbat they aro rospectfully invited to
call this evening, at the school room of the Church
of tho Holy Communion, and contribute aonio
what to the aid of the association for tho emotion
of a monument in commemoration of the Confede
IOE CREAM.-It will bo porcoivod, from au ad
vertisement in anothor column, that Mrs. ELLEN
TURPIN has opened an Ice Cream Garden at
PETIT'S popular old stand. .Let all who desire to
keep cool, and at the samo time onjoy a really
innocent glass, call in, invest, partake, depart,
and call again.
A DISAPPOINTMENT.-It has been a matter of
great regret to tho publie generally, and the ladies
particularly, that Professor MILES' address to the
Chrestomathie Society of the Charleston College
was delivered on a night so unpropitious au last
Thursday. It was, as might have bcon cxpoctcd
from one of Mr. MILES' reputation and merit, au
address worthy of the largest attendance and mo.t
profound admiration ; and, in order that it might
not be lost, when calculated to do so much good,
both mentally and morally, the Society havo
requested him, wo leam, to repeat it on the night
?f Thursday, tho 24th, when, at 8' o'clock, tho
Collego Ohapol will again be oponod to the public
mr this purpose, and we feel assured that he will
not fail to havo a full and crowded hall.
%_B FAIR.-Tbo ladios of Trinity M. E. Church
open the Fair at Hibernian Hall this evening at 7
o'clock. Wo noticed tho unique style of decora
tion yesterday, which, with the exquisite taste dis
played by tho ladios in dressing their tables, pro
m?eos a rare treat to the lovera of the beautiful.
Tho "Sybil's Grotto" will indu co many to take a
peep into the future. The Post Oftico will be oc
cupied with atterjtivo clerks, duly qualified for
their responsible position. The stage is arranged
for the tableaux' which will afford a rich and va
ried amusement on Thursday, Friday and Satur
day evenings. Tho band will discourse sweet mu
sic, and all will doubtless go merry as a marriage
bell. Such industry doaorves the patronage of our
people, and wo accordingly advino all to go and
seo for themselves.
The Bill of Fare promised at tho refreshment
- tables is calculated to tempt an anchorite.
That brick will bo there too ; not in a hat, how
ever, but in the Apalatoscopo, described in our
THE QUAKER Oatt,-Wo again havo occasion to
revert to the merits of this excellent steamer,
inasmuch as one of us arrived on her yesterday,
having for tbo first time in oui experience made
a sea voyage without at any single moment being
in tbo slightest dogreo affected by that most disa
greeable of ills-mai de mer. This consumma
tion, ever so devoutly wished for, and for once se
happily attained, wo attributo to the fact that
there is as little of tho soa-sick-producing motior.
in the Quaker City as it is possible for a steamet
to havo; besides this, the state rooms are comino
dione and comfortable, and the berths roomy ant
nn-coflin-liko. The accommodations aro in all re
spectB excellent, the faro superior in quantity
quality and cuisine, slid the attendance all tim
could be"desired. Capt. WEST is a whole-souled
genial gentleman,and a thorouRhbred, blg-hcarlei
sailor ; the other officers are cast in tho sam?
mould; and as to SAM BRIMOLOE, the pilot, i
?wero gilding refined gold and paint n * Idea in
numerable to reibr to him as a trump of the moa
exalted order. To hoar 8AM slug his Bong-h
knows but one song, and has mastered but
single line of that,-is to ait entranced ia a stat
of ecstatic happiness and bliss unalloyed.
Monsieur RAMISEY, the efficient etoward, see
that everything is served tin a la Francais; i
short, the Quaker Cily is tfflrst-?lass (floating
hotel. Let all who desire to take a pleasant ni
over to New York this summer, with tho lcat
possible chance of sea-sickneBS, remember th

"THE TunKmn STOHY."-Wo bad tbo pleasure? I
last uight of being pr'osont at tho College Chapel, I
to boar Professor MILES read bis story. Tbo au
dience? was largo and appreciative, ami although
tho talo occupied nu hour and a half in delivery,
tito Professor was listened to with unflagging in
terest. Wo were surprised to find tbo story
dresBcd in tbo garb of poesy, which cortainly ia
moro suitable to tho glowing imagery and brillhut
fancy of K?stern fable than tho colder accents
of inoro sober prose. Tho story of ALI, FATIMA
ami her Christian lover, has often befara been toi J,
ander various forma and guises. But notwith
standing our familiarity wilh tbo oft-repeated
tale, WO listened with ploamno and interest to Sir.
MILES' beautiful ami instructivo ronelering.
To read a poona au hour and a half.in length,
all written in steady monotonous iambrica (four
to tho lino), will tax tho powers of tho finest elo
cutionist; aud it is no mean test of Professor
MILES' talent for rocitativo that ho succeeded
in riveting tbo attontionof bis imditoru to tbo very
last. Tbo talo was full of dramatic and exciting
Memory would serve us in giving a comprehen
sivo and perhaps satisfactory outline, of the story;
but this wo ivimlil considor a great injustice to the
author-as, divoatcd of its pootio drapory, and tbo
accompanying charm of a fine delivery, it would
liomin convey a falso and inadequate impression of
its merits. Besides, wo would not in any degree
forestall tho pleasure which, wo hopo, our readers
may dorive, on some futuro day, by being privi
leged to havo it in book form.
TI?E BunxiKa OF COLUMBIA.- Tho New York
Beening Post, a short timo ago, was hoaxed, it
appoara, by an affidavit, purporting to bo from
one W. B. Nash, a resident of Columbia, S. C, iii
which tbo alliant set forth that Gen. H II EHM.?. \
was in no wiso responsible for tbo burniug of Co
lumbia, but thal Gon. ITAMPTUN had done the
whole of it. Tho Radicals set up a groat huo aud
cry on tho d?B?ovory of this valiant auxiliary.
Soon it leaked out that W. B. NaBli was a frei d
inan. But now wo lind that no such uflMavit was
over given. Tho Columbia Phoenix of yesterday
Wo called upon W. B. Nash yesterday, and re
ceived from lum tho following affidavit,"\?uich <lc
moliahcs tho testimony of the Post. Tbo conver
sation ho had was with a. Dr. But!, conuoctod with
the Freedmen'B Bureau, and bo distinctly and
emphatically said that ho told this officer that
Geo. Sherman burned tbo city of ''olumiiia ; that
his men sot fire to his own house, which, with tim
ausist anco of friends, was extinguished. Beverly
was port? ctly indignant at tho uso mado of his
name, and at the mutilation of his mero statement
and the falsehood that bo had mado an affidavit.
Here is now bia solemn declaration under oath :
STATE OF HOITTHBCAHOI.INA, )
RICHLAND DISTRICT. (
Personally appoarod hoforo mo W. B. Nash, who,
being duly sworn, says that he never made an affi
davit in relation to the burning of Columbia; that
be mado a statement of tbo blowing np of tue de
pot, by accident, and that a few bales of cotton
wero burned by private parties, to an officer con
nected with tho Freedmeu's Bureau. Deponent
further states that General Sherman, or men act
ing miller his permission, burned tho city of Co
lumbia; and that General Hampton had nothing to
do with (he nefarious transaction.
W. B. NASH.

18GG. \V. B. JOHNSTON, Magistrate.
We hope our friend, Beverly, will take thia los
eon to heart, and in futuro bo moro careful as to
what company bo keeps. Evil communications not
only corrupt good manners, but they also not
unfrequently bring an innocent person into very
BATTISM AT GBEENVHXE, 8. C-We leam from
the Mountaineer that the meetings at the Baptist
Church in Greenville are still continued daily,
and tho interest undtminished. Thirty-two white
persons wero baptized in Beedy River on Satur
day last, the 13th, by Rev. Wsi. D. THOMAS, the
paetor of tho Church. " The sceno was a moat
solemn and impressive one. The day was fine,
a great multitude of spectators, estimated by
aonio at two thousand, lined the banks of the
stream and thronged the bridge, immediately by
which the baptism waa performed. Perfect ordei
and decorum, as far as we obeerved, prevailed
amongst all present. The colored population ol
the town formed a very considerable portion <>:
the crowd, and we givo them groat credit for theil
I decorous behavior on the occasion. The personi
baptized wero all young, and tbo number em
braces some of our most promising youths o
both sexes. There were l8 males and 14 female?
in tho number."
THE CHOPS.- Accounts from reliable sourcei
soom to differ somowhat aa to the degree o
damage dono tho crops by the late raine ; but al
agree that thoy have been iujurod to a considor
ablo extent, especially tho cotton. Planters hav?
i experienced much difficulty in getting a goot
, stand, owing to defectivo seod and other causes
i and their prospects for a good crop wore rathe
? indifferent. The recent rains have lessened theil
- expectations and increased their apprehonsions ti
1 auch an extent that, unless Homothing cheorinj
- turns up soon, they will almost coaso to can
, whether anything ia made or not. But wo hop
t that our people will show their usual elasticity
, and make moro atrenuoua efforts to "strongthe:
1 that which romains."
t THE STAY LAW.-The Greenville Afoun fei ?iiesT e
. the 17th, in a long editorial, protests against iii
t action of the Bench of South Cm lina, in- pr<
9 uouncing-tho Stay Law unconstitutional. Th
a writer cap eeo nothing hut calamity and ruin, coi
o sequent upon this decision of tho Com t of Erron
a .ii sa? s th it lho Judges ehould either have di
s Osare?! this opinion before the elo?o e?f the Wir, e
ti withheld it at least till noxb December.
n ConuT OF ATPFALS.-The Columbia Phonu <
it yesterday say?: lu the Court of Appeals opinion
o wore delivered in tho following cases :
T. S. McGro ? ads. the State. Opinion delivo:
ed by Dunkin, 0. J. New trial refused. Bentoni
pronounced bv tho Chiof-Juetieo.

r; Henderson, Kirtlaud and others vs. Haddo
Slsger and other??, commonced on Friday, waa r
called. Argumont opened by Mr. J. H. Wilso
p- Mr. R. A. Fair and Gan. McGowan followed.
?o THE WOMEN of the South aro just now bsing d
CB nounood by the Radical press for discrimin?t?
kh betweon tho Confederate and F?deral doad in ti
J. attentions which they havo recently boatowi
upon tho graves of our oona, brothers and frion
who woro slain during tho lato civil war. \
10 think it highly probable that the graves of POP?
n aoldlora and SHERIDAN'S raiders havo not be
v garlando.i with flowers by tho fair hands of Bout
ern woroon. Wo havo nover heard that the worn
of Pewnsylvania hove bestowed such attontio
110 upon tlu? graves or the Confederate dead at G,
a FranknoBB, also, compola us to admit that
score or two of ''SIIEIIMAN'S hummers," who wc
shot white thoy were s-ealing female apnar
la- bauydinon and jewelry, havo not had their gra?,
ih, ?leeor ?ted by the Southern women whom th
re, despoiled and brutally insulted. From prest
>m appearanoos, wo think that this causo of Radii
