MATOB'S C??BT, January 18.-Henry Smith, a
gay and festive young man of dark complexion,
who had been participating in tho "mazy dance"
at a splendid ball in Elliott street, and thero salu?
ting Sarah Brown, a dusky maiden, by a lick on
the head with a club, while she was tripping thc
very fantastic heel, was fined $3 for his unrrallant
An individual who had, sans c?r?monie, walked
into a boarding houso, and' gono up stairs to bod
with all the gravity of an old lodger, but who had
boen uncovered and brought ont by the aid of the
police, was discharged, as it was supposed an
overdose of whiskey had made him get so high.
A five dollar bill, which had boen loft to answer
for another Bill who had been on a bust, was ex?
amined and foimd to be so good that, it waa re?
tained and put into tho service of the city.
One or two other cases, which are to bo examin?
ed into, concluded the business of the day.
STREET BEGGARS.-We havo heard, from moro
than ono source, that our citizens aro being con?
siderably annoyed, at the pro ont time, by men
and women knocking nt their doors and ringing
their bells, generally at meal times, and when the
summons is ?nswored by a servant, a soiled writ?
ten paper or greasy book is sont ia from some ons
begging for money. These appeals are generally
accompanied by certificates, signed with imagi?
nary names, giving a doleful account of tho suffer?
ings and wants of the petitioner; but as this is an
old dodge which, we hope, tho people know too
well, wo don't think the presentation of such doc?
uments bonofits them much. Wo are af raid, how?
ever, that the mistresses of houses stifler most
from these interruptions while engaged in domes?
tic affairs, and we would hint to the police to keep
an eye on tbeso vagrants, and to prevent them as
much as possible from disturbing families. While
wo know that want does exist in the community,
and that a great many persons, as of yore, have
hearts filled with charity, still the large means
that a number onco possessed, they have no long?
er, and tho small amounts they are now able to
give are properly bestowed upon those of our own
people, whose poverty they are well acquainted
with. It will bc a long timo boforo the inhabitants
of any southern city will be able to supply visiting
beggars either with capital or travelling expenses,
and thcrofore wc would advise all such to compli?
ment some other portion of the country, with their

It wasn't exactly l*#sr, nor any other hit d we ever

ECONOMICAL SIGHT-SEETNO_Those of our read?

ment to visit the College Chapel, and BOO Professor
HOLMES' beautiful Binopgxic Lantern views, spe?
cially selected for this entertainment. Such an
economical opportunity of making the grand tour

Soluble Pacido Guruo at present lu Tour warehouse:
Hygrom?trie Water, separated at 313 degress. 38.20
Combined Water sud Organic Matter (tho latter rich
in Nitrogen, aud therefore Atuznonia-producing
probably to the extent of nearly 3 per ceut). 36.80
Soluble Phosphate of Lime, after Ignition?. IA
Insoluble Phosphate. 35
Sulphuric Acid, with bulphate? of Lime, Magnesia,
Potash and Soda, with traces af Chlorides of
the ?arno basil, about. ft.GO
This constituent, as stated by other analysis, with its
Combined Water, would bo 16.44 per cent.
A more adiniruble fertilizer c?n scarcely te imagined.
It contains nearly everything which Corn or Cotton re?
quires uirvugh the entire stage of their grow.h. The
Soluble Phosphate is well proportioned to the Insoluble;
whilo tho latter contains so much Animal Matter a? to in?
jure its perfect disintegration, and it thereby ??cornes
fitted for an early absorption by tho plant.
Very respectfully yoma,

15 per cent, of which is immodiatoly soluble. Its effect?

?ellcd Peruvian Guano. It bsa in no case proved less ac?
tive in tue early growth of the crop. When drought in?
tervene* the crop does not Buffer from its uso a? is thc
sase with Peruvian Gnane. By reason of the presence in
it of ?o large a per cent, of Phosphate of Lime its use im?
proves the soil to an oxtent that cannot be realized frem

BONE DUST MANURE.
WI BEG TO CALL THE ATTENTION OF PLANT?
ERS to the above a? a superior manure for either

iqual if not superior to Peruvian Guano.
The following is tho report of an analyaiavriiade from a
ot now la>?toro: .?.*. ? .r" '
Phosphate of Lime, soluble.eli.:.:'._i 8.30 *
Sulphate of Lime and traces of Sulphate of

the Phosphate of Lime, which waa r?ti?
ma ted after ita ignition; the greater part of
belan oe in doubtless associate 1 with the
Animal Matter)'and Animal Matter. 30.09
lilies (Sand). 3.00
The A alma! Matter, a? might be snppeied in a fertilizer
10 largely derived from fish, i? leas highly nitmgnnized
han that in the Peruvian Guano. Still it will afford, du?
ring the process of decomposition, about three lier cont,
if Ammonia. The Oil (which ia rcmarLably abundant)
hough not generally reckoned among Manures, being
lore associated with other le?? stable animal principles,
mnnot fail of adding to the value of the mixture, cspe
ilally on Ught soils. The insoluble Phosphate being
horougtily organized and. at the same time, minutely
11 Tided, is also weU adapted to a gradual appropriation by
he plant. '
According to the present ?ample, COE'S SUPER
PHOSPHATE is a judiciously and faithfully manufae
rured Manure, and will not disappoint those who will
rive lt a trial. Even if employed alono, I should expect
Ughly remunerative results.
