THE HOPE BALL.-The 25th Anniversary of th?
Hope Fire Engine Company came of yesterday
with great eclat. The Company paraded through
the city in the afternoon, and looked the same
hopeful youths, the spem gregis, we have always I
known them. Although their number is compara- I
lively small at present, "ne cede malis,n the motto I
of the Company, Beems written upon the brow of |
every one of the members. Under the able man?
agement of their popular President, the Company I
is destined to become one of the largest and best j
in th? city.
After the business had been transacted the |
Company adjourned to Hibernian Hall, where a )
splendid Ball was in waiting. We dropped in ??
about midnight, and were welcomed with the fa- j
milliar, yet ever fresh and pleasing "Lancers," |
played by MULLER'S far-famed Band. The young
folks seemed to enjoy themselves. This much
found, we left them, and promptly returned to pen

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COUBT.-In Admiralty.
-On Tuesday the Court was engaged in the con?
sideration of the case of the steam tug Christiana
and smack Gov. Perry ta. schooner Ma?, cargo
and freight libel for salvage. A. H. BROWN, Esq., I
for libellants ; M. P. O'CONNOR, Esq., for owners of
the vessel. On motion of CoL BBOWK, JOHN E.
RIVERS, Esq., was admitted to practice in the
Unit ;d States District Court, and appeared for the
owners of the cargo. The several parties to the
case having effected an agreement, Judge BEVAN
delivered a decree in accordance therewith. The
reese! is to be sold at public auction by the United
States Marshal, on Monday next, the 24th inst.,
and the proceeds to be paid into the Registry of
this Court. ' This schooner had bsen abandoned at
sea, ten miles south cf Cape Romaine, about two
Yesterday the Court was occupied in taking tes?
timony in the case of the Owners and Crew of the
steamship Dictator vs. The bark Mazatlan, for
-'salvage. Messrs. YEADON & HANCKEL for libellante,
and Messrs. PORTER tc, CONNER contra. Bark
valued at $7000, and cargo at $7642.
? E. D. MULLIGAN,-Mate of the Dictator, deposed
that about daylight on the 10th of October last he
saw a ship with flag flying, supposed in distress.
Made a signal, and the answer was, "Wanted as
' gistance." Said they had lost their instruments,
ftvifl were out of provisions. Witness thinks the
. Dictator was endangered by the towing of this
large bark, the weather at the time being cloudy.
The Dictator would have reached Charleston at 10
or 12 o'clock in the morning, instead of 8 in the
evening. The Mazatlan waB out of reach of other
vessels. There was no chango of wind; there were
two squalls. She was ton or fifteen miles out of
the track of steamers.
Captains MIDDLETON, FERGUSON and ANTHOXS:
MICHAEL were then examined on the part of tho -
libellants. They agreed in all the essential points,
and gave it as their opinion that the Mazatlan was
in danger at the time she was taken off her an?
chorage by the Dictator. Captain F. stated that
towage under circumstances like those at present
under consideration is worth about $150 an hour.
They all admitted that, with a fair wind, the bark
might have made Savannah.
Capt. HXPOLITE FAUVBE, Master of tho Mazatlan,
was then examined. He stated that she was own?
ed in Havre, and at the time of the disaster was on
her voyage from Carmen, in Mexico, for Havre,
loaded with hides, logwood, fustic, etc. In lati?
tude 30, and longitude (of Paris) 80, she was over?
taken by a gale, on the 2d of October last. He lost
his masts and his three boats, and one of the crow
was washed ashore from the skylight. The hull
sustained no injury. The copper was a little dam?
aged. She was taking water at the rate of two and
a half inches per hour. She shipped from eight to
nine feet of water during tho gale, while lying on
her beam ends, but 48 hours after he had pumped
it out completely. The storm lasted 36 hours at
its worst. On the 4th oi" October set up the jury
mast. Did not throw overboard any part of the
cargo. Made 219 miles between the 5th and 8th of
October, by moans of his sails. The current would
have taken him to the northeast. He was an?
chored in six fathoms of water. Had five anchors.
Weather fair, sea calm, from two to three miles off
from land. Was not uneasy about the vessel. Had
seven sails he could use on his jury mast. Could
have gone either to Fernandina pr to Charleston.
Asked the Diciator how much she would charge t^
take the bark to Savannah. Capt. C. said he would
take her and leave it to the authorities to decide
what his compensation should be. The mate sug?
gested that the cost would not to much greater
io take her to Charleston, and it was determined
to bring her here. Did not consider he was in
need of salvage service; only wanted towage. His
signal was not one of distress, but only expressing
a desire to communicate. Was not out of provis?
ions, though most of his provis-'ons had been spoil?
ed by the water. His sextant was not seriously
injured. He knew very well where he was. The
value --f the vessel, before she was wrecked, was
from 50,000 to 70,000 francs.
Messrs. CKAHT.ES LINING and WM. BIRD were
examined. They are Port Wardens, and had :
made a survey and appraisement of the vessel and :
cargo. No new facts were elicited by their testi?
The mate of the Mazatlan was next examined.
The case will be continued and probably concluded :
Captain FAUVBE gave his evidence in French, in?
terpreted by Mr. ESDRAS.
THE HEBEEW BENEVOLENT SOCIETY.-The seven- .
ty-fifth anniversary of this Society was celebrated
yesterday. After the other business had been
transacted, the Society proceeded to the election
of officers, and the following gentlemen were
selected to serve during the ensuing year:
A. FALK, President
S. L. MOSES, vice-President. '
8. M. LEVIN, Secretary and Treasurer.
Dr. C. DAVEOA, Physician.
Trustees-B. F. Moise, P. Wineman and A Loryea.
Committee on Benevolence-Louis Cohen, P. Epetin and .
At half-past 6 P. M. the members and invited
guests sat down to a most sumptuous repast, pre- .
pared in due accordance with the sacred precept, by j
Mr. J. XEVISOHN. The tables looked well-every?
thing was arranged with exceeding taste. The
viands and the drinkables were all choice, such as :
are rarely met with at a public dinner, and the com- ;
party assembled, we feel assured, duly appreciated
Mr. Lu's efforts.
After the cordeau et fourchette exercises had been
concluded, the regular toasts were read, as fol?
L "The Founders of the Society-May the acorn planted
by their generous hands expand into a noble oak, whose
branches shall shelter all who need our assistance."
Responded to by Mr. H. VALENTINE, in a very
able and eloquent manner. The-theme was as no?
ble a one as even the most ambitious orator could
desire, and we are happy to say that our young
friend did credit both to himself and the subject.
2. "Charity-'The connecting link between man and
Replied to by our talented young townsman, J.
BARRETT COHEN, Esq., than whom no one could
have been chosen more suitable to reply to such a
3. "The President of the United States-A. true patriot,
who knows only his whole country."
J. N. NATHANS, Esq., replied. He briefly and
very ably sketched the history of the country, and
paid a handsome tribute to JOHNSON for his
staunch and unfaltering advocacy of the Constitu?

Responded to by the Vice-President of the He?
brew Orphan Society, Dr. P. M. COHEN.
6. "The Memory of Grace Aguilar-A. bright particular
star amidst the galaxy of Israel's daughters."
Mr. S. M. LEVIN was very properly selected to
reply to this sentiment; for who else was in a con?
dition to discourse so eloquently on the galaxy of
Israel's daughters? Having drunk a recent in?
spiration, he bestowed a most glowing tribut? to
one of .the most brilliant and loveable of her sex.
No authoress of the present or last generation
was more widely read, or wielded a greater and
more beneficent influence than Miss AQUILAS.
"Home Influence," and the "Mother's Recom?
pense," are two very pleasing books, that will be
read for years to come, and read with profit. "Wo?
man's Friendship'' is a charming story, which has
moved thousands to tears. "The Vale of Cedars,"
"The Women of Israel," and other writings, all
have illustrated this stu: of Israel, and marked her
one of the first "magnitude. Mr. L.'s effort, in our
opinion, was the most brilliant of the evening, and
was very well received. :
G. "Religious Liberty-The corner-stone of national
Replied tb by ASHER D. COHEN, Esq., who spok? of
the history of religious intolerance. He Btated that
the Constitution of the United Staies-is the first
public national instrument recognizing a perfect
7. "Commerce-The sister of civilization and enlight?
enment-The mother of refinement and wealth."
Mr. M. STRAUSS replied in his usual long and
happy styl?. Mr." ^3. is well versed in the history
of Commerce, and also in the annals of the people
of Israel, and he traced the influence of the one
on the other, and of both on the events of the
world's history and on civilization.
8. "The Jewish Ministry-A noble vocation. Its aims
should be high, and its followers upright and pure."
Rev. M. H. MSEBS being absent on account of
illness, a reply waa read from him.
9. "Our Native State-Dear to us always, now. more
dear in her hour of suffering and pain."
Mr. C. H. MOISE was absent, but sent a very
handsome reply, which waa read;
10. "The Press-The clouds of bigotry and ignorance
disappear before its benign rays."
Responded to in behalf of the Press by our
friend, Mr. N. LEVIN, in his very happiest manner.
He pointed out briefly the numerous and great ad?
vantages of a free press, deprecating the penal
law for libel. Wiihit, he maintained, it wasim
. ' ' ; ? '' 1:' ' t ?! I
pocciblo to have a perfectly free press. "What a
monstrous solecism on the civilization of the age
is this law of libel !" Our thanks aro due Mr. LEVIN
for standing up so gallantly for our craft.
There were many volunteer toasts after this, and
the company remained until a late hour in tho
night, enjoying themselves in true, old-fashioned

THE CHABLESTON HIGH SCHOOL.-At a meeting
yesterday of the Board of Commissioners, an
election was held for Second Assistant Teacher,
and Mr. F. W. CLEMENT was elected to fill the va?
cancy created by the resignation of Mr. H. B.
ABCHEB, who had recently been elected to the
position of Principal of the St. Philip street Public
Mr. CLEMENT having been Third Assistant
Teacher, that., place became vacant, and the Com?
missioners, upon ballot, elected Mr. VIRGIL C.
DIBBLE to that post. In this we think they have
made an excellent choice, Mr. D. being a young
gentleman of considerable promise and of very fair
attainments. He is a graduate of the College of
A CHRISTMAS PRESENT.-"What shall I select for
a holiday present?" isa question that many are
asking themselves. We answer, select something 1
that will be acceptable, durable, useful, orna?
mental, that will enhance in value from year to
year, and thus prove a lasting pleasure and bone
fit both to the donor and the recipient. We know
of nothing better adapted to accomplish all these
ends than a Florence Sewing Machine. They are
emphatically the machines for family use, having
no equal for utility, durability and superior qualifi?
cations throughout. They are so readily adjusted
that they can be operated by any person after a
few hours' instruction. They make four separate
and distinct stitches, each of which can be used at
the-will of the operator. They have the reversible
feed motion, and will do any kind of sewing, plain
or ornamental. The motions are all positive, hence
it is not hable to get ont of order.
Those who desire to purchase so acceptable a
present will do well to call at HAYDEN'S jewelry
Btore, corner of King and Hasel-streets, where
Messrs. C. W. DENNIS & Co., the general agents
for South Carolina, will take pleasure in exhibiting
the various styles to all who may call.
To THOSE wanting Artificial Legs or Arms we
would call particular attention to the advertisement

? Brief Dialogue between Common
. Sense and a Dyspeptic.
COMMON SENSE. IS lt possible for any human being
to enjoy life while Buffering from indigestion?
DYSPEPTIC. No more than it ia possible to be happy
on the rack. I speak from experience.
Canura SENSE. Suppose, then, that a remedy for
this terrible complaint is offered, under the guarantee of
hundreds of individ?ale of high social standing, who
luve tested the effect of the article in their own cases, is
it not unwise in any one amcted with the disease to neg.
lect giving it a trial?
DYSPEPTIC. Unquestionably. I admit the premises.
What is the deduction ?
COMMON SENSE. Give heed. HOSTETTER'i STOM?
ACH BITTERS is such a remedy. Tho evidence of its ef?
ficacy as a cure for dyspepsia la positive, complete, un?
dented, and undeniable. Have you erer ascertained by
experiment whether it is or is not the infallible cure "that
it is claimed to be?
D EUPEPTIC I confess that I have not.
COMMON SENSE. Then you stand convicted of folly by
your own showing. It the same strong proofs that have
been advanced in favor of thia great tonic bsd been sub.
mltted to you with regard to any business speculation,
you would have gone into it at once. Is HEALTH of less
importance than the dollars and cente which no man can
enjoy without it? , .
