POLITICAL ISSUES BEFORE THE PEOPLE.-Wo are
indebted to Mr. E. C. SEAMAN for a copy of a
pamphlet, from his p:n, exposing the Radical fal?
lacies. Mr. S. is a citizen of Aun Arbor, Michigan,
and we welcome his article, useless as it may be
against the tide of popular frenzy, as an evidence
that there are yet some true patriots in the fax
BBUTAL ASSAULT.-Yesterday, about 12 o'clock,
a landlord of one of the sailors' boarding houses in
Elliott street was arrested by officer LEVY for a
brutal assault upon a sailor. It seems that the
landlord was endeavoring to force the seaman
aboard some vessel without paying him any ad?
vance money, when the latter resisting, he knock?
ed him down and jumped on bim, and struck bim
in the head with a paving stone. Officer LEVY
seeing the assault, promptly arrested the assail?
ant, and carried bim to the detective office, the
sailor following. Lieut. HENDRICKS, on hearing
the statement of Mr. LEVT, ordered the landlord
to be locked up for examination by the Mayor this
morning, and. also directed that a surgeon be sent
for to attend ' to tho sailor, who was very bloody,
and quito stupid from the terrible blow which be
MATOB'S COURT, December 5.-A small, dirty
looking colored youth, dressed in a fat soldier's
garments, and laboring under the name of George
Washington, was brought to tho bar for fighting in
the streets; but as no prosecutor appeared, and as
he had been imprisoned for a day, he was dis- i ^
Kissed, with bis lips and teeth so far apart as to j
give him the appearance of having a very open
William Manigault, a colored individual, who
took another man's coat by mistake, with the
pockets foll of rice, but who was prevailed upon to
restore it to the owner, was discharged, a compro?
mise having been effected between the parties.
A sailor, of large dimensions, who got drunk and
imagined himself a vegetable, and consequently
took up his abode in that part of the Market where
carrots and turnips "most do congregate," was
fined $5, which brought him back to conscious?
ness, and made bim remember that he was part
man and part beast.
A USELESS WELL.-Some years ago an Artesian
well, of sixty feet depth, was constructed in Meet?
ing, between Tradd and Broad streets, and a pump
placed in it, much to the gratification of numerous
neighbors, who were pleased with the softness of
the water, and used it extravagantly. During the
late war, however, when that part of the city was
completely deserted, the pump was either taken
out for fire wood or may have rotted, and as the
well was never used, its absence was not noted;
but as the old residents began to move back to
their former domiciles, after peace was proclaimed,
they began to feel the want of the excellent water
formerly afforded by this public well, and which
bad been of so much benefit to them. According?
ly, about four months ago, much to the delight of
the neighbor?, the city again placed a pump in it,
and the persons around were using it with as much
pleasure as before, until some eight weeks ago,
when the handle suddenly disappeared, and the
new pump-now stands there as useless to the peo?
ple as if it were merely a post
We hopo the Chief of the Fire Department will
correct this evil, and enable the residents in that
part of the city to enjoy again this soft and agree
INTEBES-.TNG TO STREET RAILROAD MEN_The
San Francisco Morning Catt, of a recent date, has
Dr. B. M. Esterle, of this cit.,, has invented and
patented an appliance to street rails which will ef?
fectually prevent cars from getting off the track,
and at the same time put a stop, in a measure, to
the travel of vehicles on the rails by which, espe?
cially in the case of boavy teams, they become
worn and spread to that degree the flange of tbe
car wheel will s car eely take hold. It consists of an
oblong piece of iron placed at intervals on the in?
side of the rails, wedge-liko at both ends, and judg?
ing from the operation of the model which the in?
ventor has prepared, will answer the purpose de?
signed. It will bo particularly useful at the curves,
where the delays are sometimes frequent, and al*
ways annoying. The invention can bo applied to
tbe rails already laid.
PLAN FOB A NEW RAILROAD.-It will be seon, by
an advertisement in another column, that applica
tion will soon be made to the Legislatures of this
State and Georgia for a charter of a railroad to run
from some point near Saltkehatcbie, on the
Charleston and Savannah Railroad, to Millen, in
Georgia. Such a road, in connection with the
Charleston and Savannah Railroad, will open
shorter route to the West than any we now have
and will lead to competition for the freight and
travel to and from Charleston in that direction
which is a want that bas been long and seriously
felt by this community.
We are glad to bo authorized to say that this
application will be made by capitalists who have
an abundance cf moans, and who are determined
to open this great thoroughfare, and by the short?
est route and best accommodations induce travel?
lers and producers to select for themselves the
most advantageous markots and comfortable stop?
This scheme has long been a favorite ono with
some of tho most enterprising and practical men
of this city, -and we congratulate thom that tboy
have at last found capitalists of enlightened views
to carry out the plan which they have so often
Titra LNB?I?AUCE.-This branch of thc insurance
business increased to such a degree during tho
late war as to take its stand permanently alongside
of thc long established marine and fire insurance
Many companies of largo capital have been estab?
lished, and have boen almost incredibly successful.
Among thoso the Manhattan Lifo Insurance Com?
pany is prominent. The agent in this city, Mr. E.
MONTAGUE GBEHEE, is a gentleman of standing
and position, and parties desiring to invest can ob?
tain from him any further information they may
wish. See advertisement.
OUB LAUT.-Having waited for a long timo with
the expectation that either jhe city or the gas
company would throw a little light upon Hayno
street, especially in tho neighborhood of this of?
fice, where we are visitod nightly by many patrons,
and at times one cannot soe ton feet ahead; but
finding ourselves mistaken we, at last, liko the
wagoner in the fable, put our owi shoulder to tho
wheel, and with the assistance of P. L. GOTT.T.F.MTN,
who played the part of Hercules in the same story,
have succeeded in placing in front of our estab
ment a splendid light, supplied with gas from our
multiplilier, and worth at least a dozon city lamps.
We boast not only of the illuminating power of this
elegant affair, but also of the magnificent work?
manship of the lamp itself, which has received
high encomiums from ah ^ho have seen it, and in?
sures a first-rate representation of what Mr. GUIL
iiE3HN is capable of producing.
Mr. G. attends punctually to every description of
gas fitting in a workmanlike manner, and has con?
stantly on hand, at his supply shop in Church
street, opposite tho gas works, as handsome an as?
sortment of fixture -, shades, &c, as are to be
found in tbc cit}'.
THBOOGH CO??NECTIONS TO HAVANA AND NEW OB
LEAKS.-A convention of the ofneors of the follow?
ing railroads, viz.. Wilmington and Weldon, Wil?
mington and Manchester, Northeastern, Ailantic
and Gulf, and Georgia and Pensacola, was held in
this city last evening, for the purpose of establish?
ing through connections, via Charleston, between
the Norther n cities and Havana and New Orleans.
On motion, Mr. A. P. RAVENEL, Prosidont of the
Northeastern Railroad, was unanimously selected
to preside over the meeting.
After a full discussion of the merits of the pro?
posed route, it waB, on motion,
JRe?olce?, That a committoe, to consist of tho
Chairman and Mr. C. L>. Owens, bo appointed to
obtain propositions from parties interested in
steamships, to put a weekly line of steamers on
the h\ie between St. Mark's and Havana, and a
daily line from St, Mark's to New Orleans, to be
referred to an adjourned meeting of this Conven?
tion, to be held in Charleston (S. C.), and to be
called by the Chairman as soon as he may consider
it advisable to do so.
After which the thanks of the Convention were
tendered to the proprietors of the Charleston
Sotel for the uso of the Club Room.
On motion, the meeting adjourned.
POBCELAIN PICTURES.-lt will be seen by his td
rartisement, in another column, that BARLOW, the
Ejreat photographist, at the southeast corner of
King and Market-streets, challenges comparison
between his porcelain pictures and those of any
jther artist. A personal inspection will satisfy our
readers that he is justified in his confidence in
these cliefs ??ozuvres of art.,
To THE LADIES.-We take pleasure in informing
the ladies that those indispensable articles for the
toilet, "Caldwell's Fragrant Lotion,'' for chapped
lands and face, sore hps, sunburns ; also, "Cald?
well's Evangeline Hair Tonic," one of the best

ingredients which have been carefully tested, and
s warranted pure. The "Aromatic Vegetable
3oap," and other choice brands, recently intrc
luced, ara greatly sought after by ladies of fas'
tidious taste. To be found at any druggists.
To THOSE wanting Artificial Lega or Arms we
would call particular attention to the advertisement
in another column. tuths

THE SEASON OF STORMS.
The blasts of autumn and the chill storms of early win
ter are apt to make sad inroads upon the constitutions of
the feeble. Di old times, at the commencement of every
season, it was the fashion to take a strong cathartic as a
safeguard against a change of temperature. It was a
worse iban senseless practice. The people of our day
inderstand -he matter better. Instead of depleting the
system they reinforce it In the method they adopt they
jxhibit a wise discrimination, Bastead of resorting to
the vitiated stimulants of commerce, or any of the com?
pounds derived from them, they put their faith in the
mly absolutely pure invigorant procurable ba the mar
let-HOSTETTER'8 STOMACH BITTERS. Their faith
ia well founded. Never has any tonic medicine been pr?
parc i with such scrupulous precisi?n and conscientious
?are. It is a vegetable compound, of which every ingro
lient is sound, wholesome, and medicinal ' in the true
sense of the word. Now we have three prominent na
ional complaints. One-half of the adult population of
he Unite c. States suffer, more or lesa, either from dis
sases of tho stomach, derangements of the liver, or aflec
ions of the kidneys. Da no other land under Heaven
ire these maladies so general as in this country, and
aOSTETTER'8 BITTERS is a specific for them all, un
ess organic in their origin, and, therefore, beyond cure,
tod let those who are fortunate enough to be exempt
tom them at present understand one great fact, viz:
bat an occasional uso of this vitalizing tonic will prevent
the earth from freezing whare Its genial beams descend.

A HINT TO BOTH SEXES.-How TO GAIN AND RETAIN
AFFECTION.-It has frequently been suggested that
PLANTATION BITTERS arc, in another form, tho "Elixir of
Love" of the Ancients. That they do much to quiet
"family jars," and reconcile fretful wives to cross hus?
bands, wo verily believe. When domestic quiet is re?
stored and connubial felicity reigns supreme,
"How great the charm, how sweet the bliss,
That finds expression in a kiss."
A free and proper use of PLANTATION BITTERS will
inspire the souls of both sexes with pure and high-toned
sentiments of affection, and a capacity for rare and ex?
quisite enjoyment in each other's society. Remember
there is no place like home, and no passion like love^-and
nothing to link the two together and you to both like the
great Family blessing-PLANTATION BITTERS.
