It is no diffloulfc undertaking to visit and observe

; ; ST. ANDBEW'S HALL.
It was here that in December, I860, was held the
Convention of tho People of South Carolina that
passed the famous Ordinance of Secession, -.We
ahall never forget th?' sc^?^h?tf w? fli'st heard it
announced that South Carolina was an independent
State. The First Bide .Eegir^?n^W?S being pa?
raded on the Sch?tzen Platz by ita lamented com?
mander, J. % PETW^BEW,' who' ? was afterwards a
Confederate Brigadier, and fell at Falling Waters.
Colohel PBTTIGBEW formed his men in ?hollow
square and road them the ordinance, which Was re?
ceived with the greatest enthusiasm. Few of the
menhadany just comprehension of -the,.result of
the act for which they wer? ' h?rT?hmg, btit-their
colonel did, for m a speech Which he made to thom
on assuming command of the regiment a short
time before,- he had said that TA wantod none but
fighting men; that it was a mistake to suppose
that the North would allow peaceable'seeossion;
that the war which was about to bo inaugurated
would extend from Virginia to Missouri, and would
be of a magnitude to give every true patriot a
place in the picture. Tho mon had hurrahed to
that'also, and somo,had cried out that that was
jus^whatthoy wanted, butin honost truth thore
were precious few of thom; according to tho best of
our recollection, who did not think-that tho Colonel
was tallang a groat deal of nonsense.
But we ar? wandering far away from St. An?
drew's Hall, which in its origin had nothing to do
with tho politics of this country, but v^as built by
the St. Andrew's Society, an assooiatipn of Scotch
gentlemen and their descendants, who were desi?
rous, by eOOial inte?Ohange Of thought and feoliiiBT,
and by doods of charity, to keep alive the memory
and love of their fatherland.
It is one of the oldeBt and most respectable so?
cieties in the"State, and despite the loss at their
hall, and the other calamities of the war, the sur?
viving membors still continue to fulfill the noble
purposes of tho Organization.

'.'This.is,. perhaps, the most picturesque in the
city. Tho lofty columns of its portico, and its cir?
cular walls that once supported a magnificent
dome, resemble, in their decay, the Pantheon of
Borne, while, the vacant arohes of tho windows,
while they diminish the resemblance, increase the
actual beauty of the ruin. As in tho case of St.
Finbar's Cathedral, a commodious chapel in the
rear shows that th? is not the permanent ruin
worked by timo, but the eflbet of an accident that
tho spirit of the century will soon eflace, and that
wo may expect hereafter to see a new church, more
striking and moro boautiful than tho ono that was
des tr ? j efl. In this case the chapel has been erected
from tho material of tho old churoh, whioh we re?
gard as another evidence that the ruin is afc som o
future day to bo replaced by ah entirely now build?

the foundations of four walls, enclosing a large ob?

kind that we ever saw. . College commpnoementa,
Ethiopian' minstrels, concerts/-'- panoramas; jug?
glers'exhibitions, and public meotings of various
kinds, are among tho sooqos .conjured up by
memory as having transpirod.ih that nail ; but tho

uncertain and vanishing, like those made by dis?
solving views, j Thoro"aro two scones, however,'of

drat ?B a session of tho Democratic Convontion of
1860. ;j It waa an assemblage of rnarkod mon, and
many of thc laces, especially thoso of South Caro?
linians, woro familiar to us ; but thoro were throe
or four figures that struck us at the timo aB dis?
tinguished from tho rest, and which, we think, we
would know again wherovor wc saw thom. Thoso
were CALEB CusniKO, of Massachusetts, President
of tho Convention, whose commanding figure,
stern face and calm demeanor, woro tho personi?
fication of dignity ; BENJAMIN F. BUTLER, from tho
same State, whom wo ropicmbor as boing bald on
the crown. of his hoad, fat and pursy, but
ill-shapod, and having thick aonaual foaturos;
CLABK, of Missouri, and GWINS, then or afterwards
Senator from California, both afchlotic representa?
tivo Western men, and a very largo man with tre?
mendously long hair and board, who was pointed out
to us as Col. CHAS. MAV, tho cavalry officer who
distinguished himself hi tho Moxican war. Thoso,
with some dozen or moro othors, woro all on the
floor at once, trying to get tho oar of tho Convon?
tion, when the hammer of tho Speaker and his
calm, clear voice, "The member from Missouri has
tho floor I" at once restorod order and brought tho
rest of the orowd to their soats. Tho othor scone
which wo allude to' waa tho signing of tho Ordh;anco
of Seoession. Thia has boon so often doscribod
that we will only mention tho intonso baihusiasm
which soomod to be felt by ovory individual of tho
vast concourso of spectators. Old men and boys,
fashionably dressed ladies and blushing school
girls, the minister with his white cravat, and the
citizen soldior in hi? gaudy uniform, all with
one consent, applauded with heart, soul, hands,
feet, hats and handkerchiefs, as one by one oaoh
momborof the Convention performed the solemn
act of putting his hand to the doodof revolution.
Just around the corner from the Circular Churoh,
on the north sido of Cumberland atre?t, once stood
OTJMBHaiiAND BTBEBT METHODIST OHTJBOH,
It waa a large ohuroh, with a ohapel underneath
for the use of the colored people. It had no stee?
ple or portico, and very muon resembled Trinity
C?uroh in in Haael sUtwt. It waa one of the best
attended churchos in the city, having a largo con
grogation of both blacks and whites, and having
been presided over at difforent times by somo of
tho most oloquon^ Methodist divines in the State.

Until recently the steps stood to mark the spot,
but about a fortnight ago they were taken away,
?nd a high board fence waB erected, which, covered
with the hugo illustrated posters of DAN CASTEL
LQ'S Circus, now hides tho Bite of the Theatre. We
went occasionally to see plays in our early youth,
?and even now we can call to mind the broad grin
of Manager SLOAN when ho had just done his fun?
niest in some comic part? and- the sweet -smile of
his little wife when she had donned the pantaloons
td become tho page of a queen. The greatest
sensation that we evor saw in the Theatro ?as.
occasioned by Mrs. JULIA DEAN' HASNB, not on
account of her acting, though that waa generally
aQknowledgedto ba goQd,,hut rather on account of
her having married Dr. HATNE, a member of One'
of the best families' of Charleston. The best
actress we ever uaw perform on ito,boards was
Mrs. ANNA COBA MOWATT",' whom we saw in thc
leading characters Of tho "Gamester" and "Romeo
a^d Juliet." Tho very best acting that we' ever
wifcnossed there was by EDWIN BOOTH the younger,
as "Richelieu;" and the heartiest laugh wo over1
had was at GBOBGE MABSH, - as Mr., "Toodlos."'
Tho worst acting we cannot pretend to recollect, for .
f?r it was, alas ! too common. ;But we regret
sincerely that the Charleston.;Theatre, with its
brilliant stars and its dull stock companies, ls no

The Monroe Intelligencer, of the 24th, says :
On : Sunday we were visited by o?e of the sever?

During the evening the clouds 'dispersed, and a

The La crosse Democrat does not believe that
JOHN WELKES ?BOOTH is dead. It says :
The papers are,now having much to say about
Booth, whether he be dead or note:. John Wilkes
Booth was alive on the 18th day of July, 1866. Tho
man who was killed was not Booth, hut another
person, murdered in order to obtain tho reward
offered for his capture. Time will unravel the ball
of mystery now connected.with this affair, and
show up the beauties of Stanton's detective sys?
tem. Again wov repeat,- earnestly'- and cortainly,
that John Wilkes Booth never was taken to Wash?
ington, either wounded or dead, and that he was
alivo in July'of this year. '

But tho . Bayou Sara Ledger claims to havo a

disposed to question; but in order that his ca?

wo copy the Ledger's account of his extraordinary
