THE AMERICAN FARMER, for December-Balti?
more; WORTHINGTON & LEWIS. This monthly is
filled with valuable information for gardeners and
farriers, and merits a large circulation in our
State. It is excellently printed.
IP'THE CHARLESTON HOTEL, last night, was the '
?cene of gay and festive enjoyment. The wet eve?
ning utterly failed in throwing a damper npon the
buoyant spirits there assembled. The TJ. S. 6th
Infantry Band was there in full strength, and for
several hours entertained tho numerous guests
with their exquisit? music. An occasional cord
would even steal round the corner to the NEWS
office, to cheer us in our weary noctnral labors, for
which the Band has our thanks, and Messrs.
WHITE & MTTTRR our kind remembrance.
FIRES IN FLORENCE.-Several attempts have been
made during the last month to set fire to differ?
ent buildings in the town of Florence, and more
especially to the machine shops of the Northeast?
ern Railroad Company. The house of Mr. H. S.
HAINES, the master machinist, was burned down a
few days ago, and the store of Hr. STOLL, the
ticket agent, has also been destroyed by fire. An
attempt has also been made to burn the house of
Mr. A. CORRIE. The incendiaries, whoever they
may be, seem to have a particular spite against
the Northeastern Railroad Company and its em?
ployees, and it seems tons advisable that some
precautions should be taken by that corporation in
particular, and by the people of Florence in gen?
eral, against the success of such further efforts as
may be made by the incendiary villains.
BATS AND MATCHES_Mr. J. H. STALEY, has call?
ed our attention to a half-burned box of matches
found at the mouth of a rat-hole in his store, cor?
ner of Anson and Liberty streets. It seems that
the rats must have set it on fire by gnawing it,
and then alarmed by the blaze have taken to
flight. It is fortunate that the fire went ont with?
out being communicated to : anything beyond the
box, for had it been otherwise, not only might Mr.
STALEY'S store been destroyed, bnt many buildings
besides. We publish this statement, not only be?
cause it gives an account of a curious fact, but
also that it may serve as a warning to the public
not to allow boxes of matches to lie scattered
about in the way of rats and other mischief
IMPROPER CONDUCT-Many of our young men,
with no intention of being an annoyance to others,
as we firmly behove, are in the habit of assembling
of an evening in front of our houses of worship,
and with segars and pipes in their months incom?
moding ladies and those who attend there for
legitimate purposes, and who suffer from inhaling
the smoke as it enters the doors and diffuses itself
around. We have been requested by the officers of
some of the churches to touch npon this matter,
in connection with the vile habit of soiling, with
tobacco juice, the clean floors and carpets of the
different sanctuaries, they being as much impress?
ed as we are that thid hint will be sufficient to ar?
rest any further complaint.
OMNIS CANIS DIEM SPAM HABET.-Our attention
has been called, from time to time, to the marked
paucity of canines in cur city, bnt we never had
this lamentable fact so forcibly thrust upon us as
in looking over the last annual report of the City
Treasurer. There we learned, to our surprise,
that Charleston, during the past year, was guarded
by only three hundred and sixty-five dogs. Our
learned City Council, it would appear, mistook th?
dd proverb, thai every dog has its day, for an an?
cient municipal regulation, and, in accordance
therewith, have passed an ordinance dogmatically
restricting the tale of dogs to the number of days in
the year; and even this short allowance was again
curtailed by forbidding barking on the 4th of July,
Guy Fawkes, Yankee Doodle, and other national
holidays. "Let dogs delight," etcetera.
ASTRONOMICAL.-Venue, the Evening Star, is now
a brilliant object in the starry firmament. The
planet is now moving towards ns at the velocity of
80,000 miles an hour;, and though keeping in this
direction for some weeks, will diminish in bright?
ness on account of the opaque side being gradual?
ly turned towards us. On the eleventh of this
month it will pass, directly between the earth and
sun, at the distance from the earth of twenty
seven millions of miles. At that point it will be
of course invisible to us, but from its surface the
earth would afford a brilliant object to the specta?
tor-many times more so than Venus appears to
us when brightest. The next transit of Venus will
take place in seven years from the present time,
and the astronomers have quite a hst of problems
laid up for verification on that occasion.
MAYOR'S COURT, December 6_MIKE LAWLESS,
a sailor boarding house keeper in Elliott street, was
brought np for making an outrageous attack upon
a seaman on Wednesday, knocking him down,
stamping him with his boot in his face, and beat?
ing him on the head with a large rock, which was
exhibited in Court. Officer LEVY, who testified
in the case, said that he felt satisfied that LAWLESS
would have committed murder if he had not come
up when he did and arrested him. The sailor, who
was present, bore the marks of the very violent
treatment he had undergone. The case was sent
to a magistrate for prosecution. This same man,
about three months ago, made a similar brutal at?
tack upon a drunken soldier, at the corner of
Market and Meeting streets, in the presence of a
number of citizens, and that case was also ordered
Robert Smith, a light-colored individual, whom
the grecn-eyod monster had tempted tobit his wife
on the head with a stick, admitted the fact, and
the "better-half" was advised to consults magis?
trate npon the matter.
George Hancock, a "culled pusson," who had
got drunk and staggered against a lady in the
street, was fined $2.
A female, who had been-overtaken by a bottle cf
whiskey and knocked down in the street, was fined
$5 for not getting out of the way ?hen she saw it
Two young colored sprouts, who had been ar?
rested for shinnying in the street, to the groat
danger of the "heads of the people," were order?
ed to be imprisoned two and a half hours.
The lovers of the weed, who delight in smoking
"near the sea," still continue to make morning
calls on the Mayor, and contribute then* mite to
CouKTEBEErr MONEY.-An individual was arrest?
ed in this city day before yesterday under the fol?
lowing circumstances: He owed a man $5, and
paying him with a $50 counterfeit, took $45 change
and vamosed. The party imposed on presented
the $50 bill at the People's National Bank, and it
was there stamped as counterfeit. He then called
on the party who gave it to him to take it back,
which he refused to do. Lieutenant HENDRICKS,
of the Detectives, was then employed to arrest
him, which he succeeded in doing about dark. At
the time of his arrest he had seven or eijht of the
counterfeit 50's on his person. They are tolerable
imitations of a $50 greenback, but can be readily
detected by the indistinctness of the hatton on the
lappel of FRANKLIN'S coat.
REPAIRS OF THE te HAUL.-Council Chamber
is now quite a luxurious apartment. A rich Brus?
sels carpe* covers the floor; the desks, tables,
sofas, chairs, &c, are plain but substantial, while
the window curtains and the gas fixtures are of
the most elegant description. Around the walls
are hung, in handsome gilt frames, full length
portraits of WASHINGTON, CALHOUN, ANDREW JACK?
SON, and Mr. WM. ENSTON, and a half-length por?
trait of ZACHARY TAYLOR. T ?3 ese paintings aro all
by good artists, and are acknowledged to be first
The Mayors room and the Clerk's office have also
been elegantly fitted up, although in not quite such
superb style as the Council Chamber. A full
length portrait of President MONROE, in a magnifi?
cent gilt frame, uniform in stylo with those in the
Council Chamber, adorns the walls of tho Mayor's
room. Over the mantelpiece in the Clerk's office
is a large painting, five feet long and five feet high,
representing the Fire Department in 1840. The
scene is laid in Meeting street, just north of Broad
street, and the east side of the street aa far np as
the Circular Church appears upon the canvass. It
is summer, and tho trees of the City Square are in
full foliage. The City Hall appears- in its original
red brick. The Fire Proof Building is not quite
such as it appears at the present day. The steeple
of the Circular Church appears in the background
and the blocks of bnildings from Chalmer's street
to the church are complete! In the foreground is
a group of figures representing the following per?
sons, standing from left to right as you face the
picture, as follows: D. MCINTOSH, an Engineer;
Captain SHORT, President of the Eagle; R. W.
BAGOT, President of the Phoenix; WM. H. GIBSON,
President of the Charleston; P. COBURN, "Vice-Presi?
dent of the Charleston; Firemaster HOFF; E. W.
HARE, vice-President of the Vigilant; C. MEYR, the
artist; WM. TAYLOR, vice-President of the Phoenix;
Firemasters BEE and MCDONALD; vice-President
OSTENDORFF, of the German; Dr. KECKLEY, Presi?
dent of the Marion; JOHN A. WAGENEB (now Gen?
eral WAGENER), President of the German; the vice
President of the Marion; THEO. SMITH, President
of the Neck Axe Company; Mr. PETSCH; Firemaster
NATHANIEL FIELDS; JOHN SCHNIEBLE, Chief of the
Fire Department; Firemaster W. H. KIRKWOOD;
CHAS. H. WEST, President of the Vigilant; JOHN
SYMONS, President of the Palmetto; CLEAPOR, an
Engineer; Firemasters. WM. HOWLAND and HUGH
R. BANKS; a side face, name unknown; JOHN
HERIOT, President of the ?tna; R. HAMMET, Chief
Engineer; Firemaster JOHN SEIGLING; D. BOINEST,
President of the Charleston Axe Company; R.
DOYLE, an Engineer, and H. CASEY ,of the iEtna.
In a window of the City Hall, looking on, are seen
Mayor MTNTZING and Alderman PATRICK. In a
portico of the Fire-Proof Building are seen several
ladies in coal-scuttle bonnets and short-waisted
dresses, without hoops. In all there are thirty?
nine faces and figures in the picture, every one of
them sufficiently distinct to be recognized by any
one acquainted with the originals.
It is as well to remark, perhaps, that the Board
of Firemasters at that time was composed of Al?
dermen, and not of the Presidents of the different
companies, as at present, and that the engineers
spoken of belonged to a corps who superintended
the blowing np of buildings with gunpowder-a
mode of putting a stop to the progress of a confla?
gration which has, we believe, become almost, if
not entirely, obsolete. This picture was painted
by Mr. C. MEYR, a German artist, in 1842, and was
raffled by him to obtain some compensation for his
labor. It was won by Mr. R. W. BACOT, then Presi?
dent of the Phoenix, and allowed by him to be bung
np in the hall of that company. When the hall
was destroyed by fire in 1861, the picture was res?
cued from the flames, as we have been informed,
by Mr. SIDDONS, of the firm of ALLAN & SIDDONS,
and it was afterwards, on May 6,1862, presented to
the City Council by Mr. PIERRE BACOT, the son of
the former proprietor. It bas now on it some ugly
scratches, which were made on it by coal and other
rough things among which it was hid by Mr. W.
H. SMITH, Clerk of Council, to save it from the
United State" forces after the evacuation of the
city by the Confederates.
In the Clerk's Office, opposite the painting of the
Fire Department, is a large plat of tb? City of
'. Charleston in 1852, 6 feet by 4, surveyed by E. P.
BRIDGES and ROB'T C. ALLEN, and drawn by Mr.
There is also in the Council Chamber a miniature
painting of the Marquis DE LAFAYETTE, executed
by Mr. CHARLES FRASER,-the well-known amateur
artist of this city, the history of which is somewhat
remarkably. After the evacuation of Charleston
by the Confederate forces, in February, 1865, it
was taken out of the bands of the Clerk of Council,
against bis earnest remonstrances, by one Capt.
STANLY, of tiw U. S. steamer Stale of Georgia,
which gallant oiRcer also took o. ' with him a large
mirror from the Mayor's room, to adorn bis cabin,
and also a handsome chair for the same purpose.
In November, 1865, just after the election of Mayor
GAILLARD, it was sent by express to ex-Mayor
MACBETH, unaccompanied by a letter, and, in fact,
without any cine to where or whom it came from,
save the express mark-"Norfolk, Va."
Some of the furniture that is now in the City
Hall is what was there during the war, but the
carpet of the .Council Chamber, and most of the
furniture, is new-the former carpet and much of
the furniture having boen sent North while the
Hall was in military possession, and never since
Loss OF THE STEAMSHIP SUWANEE.-The steam?
ship Suwanee, from New York for Brazos Santi?
ago, having encountered much heavy weather and
put into the Delaware Breakwater, afterward left
that point to continue her voyage, and on the
night of the 3d inst., off Georgetown, S. G., expe?
rienced a terrible gale from southeast, during
which she foundered, all hands taking to three
boats, two of which were soon after picked np by
the brig Potomac, from this port for Georgetown,
S. C., and carried to that point. The captain's
boat, containing himself and fourteen others, has
not been heard from. The officers and men who
were saved by the Potomac arrived here yesterday
by the steamer Fannie, Captain DAVIS, from
Georgetown, S. C. The following report has been
furnished us by the supercargo, Mr. J. FRED.
LOSS OF THE STEAMER SUWANEE.
The steamship Suwanee, J. W. Catharine mas?
ter, left New York on the 27th November, bound to
Brazos Santiago, with a heavy freight-the vessel
being loaded down-with her guards under' water.
The weather was moderate until after passing Ab
secom Light, when tho wind freshened from 8.
and W., with a head sea. While standing down
for Cape Henlepen, bound for the Breakwater,
Delaware, the steamer struck on the shoal off
Hereford Inlet. Finding it impossible to get her
off without lightening, we threw over about 200 |
cases of heavy goods, when sho floated off. We
then ran for the Breakwater and anchored. After
taking in some freight there, we put to sea on the
30th, with a strong westerly wind. Nothing oc?
curred np to the night of tho 3d December. When
off the ?South Carolina coapt, running down for
Cape Romain Light, a heavy gale set in from the
S. and E., the wind and sea increasing, until at
midnight it blew a hurricane, the ship laboring
heavily, frequently fallingbff into the trough of the
sea, taking in water over the hurricane deck.
From this time up to 5 A.M. the water gained j
rapidly. The steam and hand pumpa were kept
agoing, and efforts made to lighten her by throw?
ing over cargo. At 5 A.M. the water was within
twelve inches of the fires, and tho liremen up to
their waist in water, trying to keep the fire agoing.
At 6 o'clock, finding the ship must go down, got
ont the boats and launched them safely, although
the sea was running very heavy. All the ship's
company left her in safety, and about an hour after
we saw her go down. After leaving, the boats,
three in number, steered to the N. and W.-the
captain's boat, containing 15 persons, being ahead,
the other two boats, in charge of the first mate and j
chief engineer, keeping company. About 9 AM.
we lost eight of the captain's boat, and, havirg no
compass in either of our boats, we shaped our
course by the sun, trying to make the land. About
Meridian we made a sau to the E; the first mate
made a signal of distress, and both boats kept away
for the friendly ship. It proved to bc the brig Poto?
mac, of Buclisport, Me., J. T. Snow master, 60
hours from Charleston to Georgetown, 8. C., who
took us on board, and done everything in his pow?
er to meet our necessities-none of us having any?
thing but the clothes we had on. He landed us
safely at Georgetown, and, under the Providence
of God, we are indebted to him for our lives. We I
are nuder a lasting obligation to Captain Davis, of
the steamer Fannie, for a free passage to this port,
and his kindness to us while on board. The names
of the ship's company are appended below.

PHILADELPHIA UIVIVEKSXTY OF MEDI?
CINE AND SURGERY.
Organized, 1848-Chartered by the Legislature, Feb. 26,
1853-Amendments to Charter, Feb. 15,1860, and March
TWO FULL SESSIONS OF LECTURES EACH YEAR,
commencing the first of October, aiid continuing
until April. The Dissecting Rooms are open, and pri?
vate lectures and quizzes continued during the entire
year. The first session continues until Christmas, or for
three months, and the second until the first of April, or
three months; the two constituting one full course of lec?
tures. Exam'nation of candidates for graduation -will
occur at the end of each session.
Requisites for Graduation.-The requisites for gradua?
tion are three sessions of lectures, and three years study;
or four sessions, including two years spent at tho Uni?
The System of Medicine Taught.-The University is a
liberal medical school, in which all branches of medicine
and surgery are taught, including the preparatory studies,
without regard to any sectarian views. Hence, while
they deprecate the exclusiveness of Allopathy, Homoeo?
pathy, Eclecticism, Hydropathy, etc., thoy believe that
all principles of cure and therapeutical agents should be
taught in all well-regulated medical schools, and that
every intelligent, honest, and thorough practitioner is
entitled to all the courtesies and privileges of the
profession, without regard to his peculiar notions in
_ Fees.-The fees for all branches,- including all the
tickets, matriculation, and dissection, are $60 a session,
or $120 per year. Those who purchase tickets only have
to matriculate once,.which makes the second session $55,
including demonstrator's fees, or $115 for a full course.
To aid young men of moderate means, the University
has issued five hundred scholarships, which are sold to
first-course students, for S75, and to second-course stu?
dents and clergymen for $50, each constituting the holder
a life member, with the perpetual privileges of the lec?
tures, and all the teachings of the school. The only ad?
ditional fees are a yearly dissecting and matriculating
ticket, each of which is $5.
The Advantages of Scholarships.-The student holding
a scholarship can enter the College at any time during
the year, attend as long as he chooses, and re-enter the
Institution as frequently as desired.
It requires no previous reading or study to enter the
University on scholarships, hence all private tuition fees
Students, by holding scholarships, can prosecute other
business a part of the time.
The candidate for graduation can present himself at
any time, and receive his degree as soon as qualified.
In case a student should hold a scholarship and not be
able to attend lectures, it can be transferred to another,
thus preventing any loss.
Parents, guardians or friends of students wishing to
purchase scholarships for them a year or more before
their attendance at the University, can secure them by
advancing one-half the price and paying the balance
when the student enters. Physicians and benevolent
men can bestow great benefit upon poor young men by
presenting them a scholarship, and thus enabling them
to obtain an honorable profession.

the feeble. Di old times, at the commencement of every
'< season, it was t>^ fashion to take a strong cathartic as a
safeguard ag- r,t a change of temperature. It was a
worse than se^eless practice. The people of our' day
understand the matter better. Instead of depleting the
system they reinforce it? In the method they adopt they
exhibit a wise discrimination. Instead of resorting to
the vitiated stimulants of commerce, or any of tho com?
pounds derived from them, they put their faith in the
only absolutely pure invigorant procurable in the mar
ket-HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS. Their faith
ia well founded. Never has any tonic medicine been pre?
pared with such scrupulous precision and conscientious
care. It is a vegetable compound, of which every ingre?
dient is sound, wholesome, and medicinal in the true
sense of the word. Now we have three prominent na?
tional complaints. One-half of the adult population of
the United States boffer, more or less, either from dis?
eases of the stomach, derangements of the liver, or affec?
tions of the kidneys. Da no other land under Heaven
are these maladies so general as in thia country, and
HOSTETTER'S BITTERS is a specific for them all, un?
less organic in their origin, and, therefore, beyond cure.
And 1st those who are fortunate enough to be exempt
from them at present understand ene great fact, viz:
that an occasional use of this vitalizing tonio will prevent
the earth from freezing where its genial beams descend.
