MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 7,18C7.
LOCAL MATTERS.
To otra StrascRrBEBS.-We would call tho atten?
tion of those who are indebted to ns throughout
tho country, that the old yoar is closing aud their
Recounts are not yat 6ottlod. Tho price of sub?
scription ia not largo, and will not be missed from
their plethoric pockets. The first of January has
long been celebrated as a d iv sot apart for closing
old accouuts. and wo would not have our friends
depart from tliis time-honored custom. Monoy is
the motivo power of every enterprise, and news?
papers aro no excoption, and we respectfully ask
our country suHcr.bers to cash up and commence
the now year with a cWr record.
OUR THANKS aro duo Mr. UK LACET, tho enter?
prising nowa dealer ot' tho Milla House, for a lato
number of the Waverly Magazine. Mr. DE L.
has always on hand a full supply of periodicals, Ac.
UNTIED STATES COURT.-In consequence of tho
indisposition of Judge BEEAN no Court was held
yesterday, and the hearing of the Bank case post?
poned to Monday.
STREET RAILWAY. - We understand that tho
number of passengers on this line on Saturday
last exceeded twenty-seven hundred and twenty
persona.
GEN. ELLISON CAPEES.-This gentleman, wo
learn, has been recently elected Lay Reader of the
Episcopal Chnrch at Greenville, S. C. After he
shall have been ordained it is thought he will be
chosen as their Pastor.
ELMORE MUTUAL INSURANCE COUPANT.-By refer?
ence to the advertisement in another column, it
will be seeu that an adjourned mealing of this
Company will bo hold at their office. No. 20 Broad
street, at 1 ? M. to-day.
CORONER'S INQUEST.-Magistrale KANAPAUX was
called upon yesterday to bold an inquest over the
body of Guy Inglis (colored), aged 75 years, oa tho
premises of-, Berresford str eet. The verdict
of the Jory was that he carno to his death from old
age and general debility.
INTEREST LNG CEREMONI-By virtoo of a special \
dispensation from the R. W. Grand Master, a pub?
lic installation of the oiEoors of Schwier Lodge,
No. 30,1. O. O. F. took place last evening. As a
8nolie display of this character is very rara, and
ie jaterior of the hall known only to the initiated,
a large aud-. en cc availed themselves of the oppor?
tunity, and tho spacious auditorium was soon fill?
ed. The installation was performed bv R. W.
Grand Master R. S. Duryea, assisted by the Grand
Lodge, and tho ceremony was both novel and im?
posing to those who wore unacquainted with the
mysteries of Odd Fellowship, and to whom the hall
bad been heretofore inaccessible.
THE STRI?E AGAIN.-The colored slovedorej
f Aeiing satisfied with their conduct were naturally
disgusted with those base minds that would stoop
to work at tho old rates. Their anger waxing hot
the more they debated the question, thoy finally
made a foray on the different wharves yesterday
and captured those who differed from them and
forcibly prevented a further continuance of work.
Thia warlike manouvre will not improve their
cause, and they will find that their high-handed
measures will redound to their own disadvantage.
The temporary inconvenience occasioned by tins
movement wi.l soon be obliterated, as the mer?
chants and shipowners of Charleston are too ener?
getic to allow it to interfere with their business,
and are fully capable to resist all unjust demands.
NEW POLITICAL MOVEMENT.-Senator HARLAN,
Ex-Secretary of the Interior, has been sojourning
in our city for the past few days, and left for Wash?
ington on Friday night. It is stated upon good
authority that ms visit here was for the purpose
of obtaining information concerning the extent of
the Union sentiment in the State, and to recom?
mend the formation of a Union League and the
organization of a Union party, the chief dr ugn of
which shall be to aid in procuring a "LoyaT Gov- j
ernment for the State. We learn that immediate :t
acton will be taken in tao matter, end that a pe?
tition will si jrtly be circulated, the purport of
which will be to Becure to the State a government
Bimi'ur to that recommended for the State of North
Carolina, which was presented by THAD. STEVENS
in Congress. The saintly FRENCH, the planter and
chaplain, we understand; is a primo mover in the
matter.
MAT?B'S COURT, January 5.-David"Bi*?wn, a gay
and festive ''cuitad gommant who had imbibed
such a quantity of the real "knock knee," that in
staggering along the street, he "iotched up"
against a lady, was fined $5. .'
- A sailor, who waa found lying down on the
wharf,' and looking upwards for tho Boston boat,
was made to pay $3 for being taken caro of.
John Duboee, a dark complexioned youth, who
had been ent to the Guard House for attempting
to steal a bale of cotton from the South Carolina
Railroad, was about being turned over to
Magistrate for prosecution, when the Mayor re?
ceived a message from an officer of the company
desiring that the prisoner be discharged and allow?
ed to go on to Florida, to which State be was pro?
ceeding when be committed the act. His Honor,
after some reflection, acquiesced in tho request,
but was of the opinion that such a course or pro?
ceeding did not aid him much in putting down
offences o:.' tins nature.
THE NORTHEAST PASSAGE.-The section of our
city lying towards that point of the compass, ie at
present in a deplorable plight ; and if the locality
of the various fords is not known, it is a hazardous
experiment to essay a crossing. Unless speedy ac?
tion .ia taken, the little ground left will oe swept
away, and it will bo necessary to charter a ferry?
boat in o r;l er to communicate with the different
pavements (?). This is especially tho case at the
corner of. Reid and Hanover and in tir? neigh?
borhood of Amherst streets. CHRISTIAN'S Slough
c of Despond was a mere tr i ll o to the bog that; huge,
dark and shiny, everywhere meets the eye.
Tradition, states that there was once a drain in
that neighborhood, but it is only from the records
of the Ai jori ginee that wo receive any authentic
account o f such an institution. It has long been
lost ki tho ocean of mud that now covers the spot,
but a> research and exhumation would not only re?
joice the antiquarian, but would benefit the com?
munity. In addition to other evils, the tide, which
has been said to wait for no man, acta np to the
proverb, and marches in boldly twice a day ; but if |
said tide were taken at the ebb, a determined body
of men could soon put a stop to his triumphant
progress, and, by a little judicious labor, restore
this neglected region to a passable condition.
At the present time, and during the continuance
of the late deluge, the inhabitants of that section
have hung their blacking brushes on the poison
berry trees, for a shine soon becomes of the earth
earthy, and passes quickly away. In their distress
and perplexity they have lifted up their voices, and
have requested the City Fathers to rescue them
from a muddy grave, and to save their shoes from
reproach. And their petitioners will ever pray, ?cc.
WE EXTRACT from the Abbeville Vanner, of last
Wednesday, the foUowing tribute to a gentleman
well known in our community as a faithful and de?
voted minister, and kind and excellent friend.
TESTLMOS1AL OF .RESPECT TO REV. HENJ. JOHNSON.
At a meeting of the Vestry of Trinity Church,
Abbov?lo, hold on the 24th December, 1866, tho
following preamble and resolutions were unani?
mously adopted:
Whereas our esteemed Rector, the Rev. Ben?
jamin Johnson, has received a call to Milledgeville,
Georgia, and he has deemed it his duty to accept
this invitation to a larger field of usefulness; and
whereas he has been with us for the lost eleven
years-eventful years in the history of our little
Church as in that of our country-faithfully and
tenderly ministering to those around him in sick?
ness and in health, in adversity as in prosperity,
and amidst the horrors of war as well as in peace.
We feel that we cannot consent that he should
separate from us without giving some faint ex?
pression ol our regret at his departure, and our
opinion of him as a man, a Christian and a minis?
ter. Therefore,
Resolved, That ?vh?e we regret to lose our friend
and brother, the Rev. Mr. Johnson, as our spirit?
ual guide and rector, believing it to be a mattor
proper for his own decision as to where he can be
most useful in his high vocation, we accept his
resignation, and wish him and his family God
speed among new friends and in a wider field of j
nsefulness.
Resolved, That whilst we thus humbly acquiesce
in this result, our hearts are not insensible to tho
rupture of many social ties and tonder memories
growing- out of kindly intercourse in the confiden?
tial relation of rector and parishioners, which has
extended over a number of years-including pe?
riods ol' unusual misfortunes and so: rows.
Resolved, That Mr. Johnson is entitled to our
thanks for the Sdelity and ability, perseverance
and zeal, with which he has discharged bis pastoral
duties; and to our affectionate regard for the sin
gdar modesty and simplicity of his manners, and
e purity and unselfishness of his life and char?
acter since ho has been among us.
Resolved, Tnat in the opinion of this Vestry, the I
interest of the Episcopal Church in Abbeville Dis?
trict has been groatly promoted bv the exertions
and example of Mr. Johnson-his Christian liber?
ality refuting the allegation of exclusiveness, his
warm zeal contradicting tho charge of coldness,
his modest simplicity correcting tho opinion of I
mere formalism, and his catholic piety command?
ing the respect and winning the affection of Chris?
tians of all denominations.
Resolved, That, in the opinion of this Vestry, it
will be difiicult to fill tho placo of Mr. Johnson, to
whom this Parish it indebted, not only for his con?
stant course of modest worth as a gentleraan'and
judicious hberality as a Christian minister, bul for
bis turitiring oxertions in building our beautiru} j
Trinity Church, and ornamenting its grounds,
which*will stand a lasting testimony of his ouorgy I
and tasto, and a monum nt of his devotion to tho
interest of tho Church.
Resolved, That this preamble and resolutions bo
entered upon tho minutes of thia Vestry, and that
a copy be given to Mr. Johnson, and another for?
warded to Bt. Stephen's Church, MiUodg?ville,
Ga., as a simple testimonial from*those with whom
Mr. Johnson has labored in thc past, to thoso
amorjg whom he is to labor iu the future.
Resolved, That tho foregoiug preamble at d reso?
lutions be published in the papers of the District.

THE EPIPHANY OB TWELFTH DAT.-Tho Cth of
Jauuary, or "Twelfth Dav," is so called, being
the twelfth from Christinas, and Epiphany from ;t
Grook word signifying appearance, ll has boon
from tho earliest' ages a festival of tho Church hi
commemoration of tho manifestation of Christ to
tho three Magi or w iso men of tho East. The Epi?
phany was first observed as a separate feast about |
the year 813, but tho primitive Christians observed
the Feasts of the Nativity and Epiphany as carry
as tho fourth century.
To render duo honor to tho memory of the Magi
in the middle ages, their worship was eolobrated
by a little drama callod the "Feast of the Star."
This< was performed by tho priests aud their at?
tendants in their different Churches, and was con?
sidered at that timo an interesting and imposing
spectacle. At Mika, in 1336, tho "Festival of the
Three Kings" was celebrated by tho Preaching
Friars in a manner peculiar to" that age. Tho
thrco kings appeared on throe horses richly capar?
isoned, and surrounded hy pages, body-guards,
and other retinue. After 'parading through tho
principal streets they proceeded to the Church of |
St. Eustorgius, wherb in a manger was the infant
Christ and his mother. Here the throe lungs of?
fered their gifts. An immense concourse of tho
pooplo, knights, Lidies, and ecclesiastics, attended
this ceremony.
In modern days, especially m England, 12th day
stands only inferior to Christmas as a popular fes?
tival, bnt is celebrated in an entiroly different
style from tho past. Among other amusements
on that day was the 12th cake; this was a large
cake formed with a bean inserted; tho cake was
divided by lot, and whoever obtained the piece
containing the bean was accepted as tho King of
the day, and called the King of tho Bean. Besides
this, a number of jocularities, games and amuse?
ments are played; bnt the practice of observing
tho day is gradually becoming obsolete except in
those countries which still presorvo a fondness for
old customs. Formerly, monarchs took a part in
these games, and cases are on record where Mary,
Queen of Scots, resigned her throne for the day
to the more fortunate Queen of the Bean.
Down to the time of tho Civil Wars of England,
tho feast was observed with great splendor, not
only ai Court, but at tho universities and else?
where." Tho Puritan element which then got the
ascendancy, frowned EO contemptuously on such
profane amusements, that they have never been
restored to popular favor to tho samo extent. It
is now morely a Church Festival, and only observ?
ed by the Episcopal and Catholic Churches.
The period of Carnival (named as a farewell to
tl ab) begins on Epiphany and ends on Ash Wccl
nesday; this is observed in Beman Catholic coun?
tries, bat particularly at Homo and Paris, as a
time of merry-making and pleasure. In modern
Borne, the masquerading in tho ctreets and all
oat-door amusements are limited to eight days; in
Paris the time is much shorter. Tho' only places
in this country where the Carnival is observed to
any extent, are Canada and the city of N't>w Or?
leans.
THE STATE NORMAL AND HIGH SCHOOL.-This
noble institution was reopened last Wednesday for
the reception of pupils, after a long but unavoid?
able interruption. The Normal School, before tho
war, and daring the years of its early progress,
stood first in the State among the female institu?
tions of learning, and many are the teachers that
were fitted here for thea* responsible calling.
Under the able and experienced guidance of Mr.
Mood, the present principa!, we have no hesitation
in prophesying a brilliant future for the Normal
Schcol.
THE BTNOPTBIO LANTERN AT TRINITY CHURCH.
These interesting exhibitions, which havo been
postponed for some time on account of the incle?
ment weather, will positively take placo to-mor?
row afternoon at Trinity Church. When these
view, were exhibited in tho College Chapel, they
pleased and entertained audiences, and when it is
known that .the ultimate object of tho present per?
formance is charity, that and the small price of ad
mission charged will attract many who still remen:
ber their past visit with delight.
R?DUCTION OF WHABF BATES.-Tho attontionof
the business public is requested to the advertise?
ment of Mr. E. G. HOLLAND, Agent for North and
South Commercial Wharves, which appears in oar
issue of to-day. It will be seen that a most impor?
tant reduction has been made on thc prosont
charges for wharfage, and that tho rate for Up?
land Cotton will be 25 cents per bale per month,
instead of 50 cents, as at present ; 40 cents per
bale for Sea Island, instead of 75 cents ; for Lice
24 cents per tierce per month, instead of 40 ceuts,
and other charges lo be in proportion.
This property consists ot two fine piers extend?
ing into Cooper River, which havo lately been
placed in superior ordor, with convenient and well
constructed warehouses, and overy arrangement
suitable for tho transact?OT*W a general wharfage
and storage business.
Tho Commercial Wharves wero tho depots for a
large business before tho war, and under tho
management of Mr. Holland, who is a skillful and
long experienced manager of wharf prqporty, its
old patronage should be largely exceeded.
THE CHABLESTON HOUSE.-The enorge^c pro?
prietors of this establishment ore determined to
be up with the times, and in order to be up to
the mark they have marked down soveral stylos of
goods. These, consisting of dress goods and
other articles, all entirely in season and of the
best qualities, they now offor to their numerous
friends and the pubhc at greatly reduced rates.
Bargains ore always eagerly Bought ont by tho
ladies, who, we predict, will soon throng Messrs.
Stoll, Webb & Co.'a extensive store, and reduco
their piles of goods considerably.
The Charleston House is BO well known to our
community as a thorough and popular business
establishment that the ladies are satisfied from
the advertisement (to be soon in another column)
that the-"goods aro as represented-cheap, ser?
viceable, and a bargain.
THE FIRST bf the year has alwayB been celebra?
ted aa the time for making new outfits and sup?
plying deficiencies. Messrs. MACKEY & BAKES,
the popular proprietors of the furniture store in
the Adger buildings, are prepared to supply all de?
mands in their line, bat have especially a fine as?
sortment of cottage sets which, for cheapness, du?
rability and service, cannot bo surpassed. All who
need a neat and substantial set would dowell to
call at their warehouse, and they will find no diffi?
culty in making a selection.
ALE ! ALE 1-The lovers of this beverage will be
pleased to seo, by a notice in another column, that
Messrs. J. & W. H. ABMSTBONO, at Nos. 40 and 42
Market street, have received a largo snpplv of
Ckgett'sjastly celebrated Ale. The Brewery of
Mossrs. W. Clagett & Co. was established in 1776,
and their Ale being ali warranted, is of tho best
quality. The Messrs. Armstrong are the agents
for thiB Brewory, ard procuro their stock from
fountain head.
AN OLD HOUSE WITH A NEW NAME_Mossrs.
MOISE & DOWTE, we learn from tboir advertise?
ment, succeed the well known house of KINO &
CASSZDEV. Mr. MOISE has long been in the drug
business in this eily, and is thoroughly acquaint?
ed with all its mysteries. Ho was with KINO &
CASSIDEY during the entire time they did business
in this city, and is, therefore, well known to uLI
their old customers. Mr. DOWTE, formerly of the
drug houeo of BUFF & DOWTE, has a large circle of
friends in every State of the South and West, who
will feel gratified to learn that he can be found at
bis old post again.
Success ti our friends. We have tho less hesi?
tation in expressing this wish, OB they sell other
things besides calomel and jalaD, and a good busi?
ness cn their part need not be because of a sickly
season to tho community.
Mas. A. N. PrKEnro.-We would ask the atten?
tion of oar readers to the card of this lady, who
proposes to give instruction on the piano, violin
ana guitar, as well as in vocal music. Mrs. P. is
the accomplished lady whose performances on tho
