THE ODD FELLOWS' CONCERT.-The love of music
is inherent in every breast, and there are few en?
tertainments that are more acceptable to a com?
munity than a concert ; this has been proved by
the large audiences that attend the amateur con?
certs given in this city. T e concert of Thursday
night, will he in no respect inferior to those that
have preceded it, but will be conducted hy profes?
sors of known ability, who win be assisted by the
best musical talent in the city. By referring to
the advertisement, it will be seen that the com?
mittee of arrangements are gentlemen well known
in the business circles, and their names would alone
be a sufficient guarantee for the performance.
Merrie May is the month for enjoyment, and we
feel confident, that the anticipated concert will he
a success, The announcement that it would take
place, bas already caused a flutter in many breasts,
" and an overcrowded house on Thursday night will
prove : that- neither, the, musical or charitable feel?
ings pf the commninity are torpid. .
. PETROLEUM.-The frequency of large fires, and
the danger often resulting from the improper stor?
age of inflammable material, induced Council to
frame a bili co "Beguiate the storage of Petrole?
um, ita producta, and other inflammable oils."
This passed its third readinp; at the late session,
and becanje an act, ta take effect thirty days from
Its pasBag6.->^EbJ'pradpal.Ja>aJh3rea of the bill are
that no Petroleum, pr kindreilous, shall bo stored
eon th of linevatreei in quantities exceeding forty
or fifty gallons, aha:such quantity to be kept in a
metal vessel"; and,-when^arriving in the-city, it
shall not remain unbound t langer than twenty-four
bonn. - -Jl. -,
It waa the general wish, not enly of Council hut
of many merchants, to place restrictions upon the
- Bale bf these oils without hampering trade, and
the bill hps been made extremely simple. By a
careful observance of its provisions the frequent
occurrence of fires may be checked, fer if they
bava not been traceable to the canse, yet th? re?
moval of such inflammable material will eventu?
ally conduce to the welfare of tho city. The last
clause in the bill imposes a fine of $200 for ita vio?
lation, and all parties concerned should take meas?
ures to at once sec ure themselves.
THE STORM OF YESTERDAY.-May, the gentlest
mildest month in the year, was metamorphosed
. on Monday night, into a weeping, windy, crusty
Hay. - The skies lost their cerulean hue, th" * : irs
hid behind the lowering clouds, and swift descend?
ing rain convinced the belated passenger, that
the windows of heaven were opened, and the plugs
loosened. This change was very sudden, and al?
though the weather WOB somewhat sultry the day
previous, few persons expected to see so fierce a
.... .'demonstration made by the blustering god: Old
Boreas had evidently been watching his opportu?
nity, and succeeded in raising such a gust that
quiet cisterns awoke alarmed, thinking that they
had mistaken the season, or that some convulsion
of riaturehad occurred. Limbs were torn from
treeef and in many instances the trees themselves
prostrated ; tiles and slates blown from houses,
and fences prostrated. . The old fence that partial?
ly surrounds the new Custom House lot, was blown
down, 'hut this will not be s great loss, as it was
neither ornamental or useful, and would soon have
been removed to make the intended improvement
on the street. On the water, the effects of the
storm was more severely felt, and the damage re?
sulting from its violence and fury has probably
been felt along the line of coast. In the harbor,
the waves were in violent commotion, and on East
Battery the spray was thrown into the houses on
the opposite side. The change has been benefi?
cial in cooling the atmosphere and in laying tbe
dust, which before was a perfect nuisance, but if
the storm extended any distance in the interior,
W? mit} expect io hear of considerable damage
done to the growing crops.
Tax Fms PROOF BUTLDINO.--This old building is 1
gradually losing its dingy dungeon-like appear
ance, and is being transformed into a comparative?
ly light and airy structure. The Commissioners
of Public Buildings have recently ' determined to
make several improvements in the basement, and
Mr. JAB. M. EABON, a member of the Board, has
already effected a great change by removing the
heavy iron shutters, substituting a light open work

keeping with the building, and is a vast improve?
ment1 on the heavy unmanageable shutters, whose
only recommendation was that they were iron and
The Fire Proof Building gartered severely daring
the war, and everything valuable about it, inclu?
ding even the wooden frame-work of the doors
and the flooring was carried off after the evacua?
tion. In the impoverished condition of the coun?
try the work of repairing and restoring the build?
ing to its former appearance was necessarily slow,
and the Board had to proceed in this undertaking
by degrees. The offices on the first floor soon
. lonna occupante, but it is only recently that any
application has Seen made for those in the base?
ment. Anticipating this demand, Mr. EABON has

S The long corridor 'has been whitewashed in a
Buperior manner, and new " caseing" frames and

altered and the intended improvements completed,

CONTENTION cir COLORED MEN.-The preliminary
meeting of the State Convention of the Union Re?
publican Party was held at the Military Hall last
night. The attendance was not as large as on a
previous occasion, and only a portion of the State
was represented. On motion of R. C. DeLarge, B.
C. Gleaves, from Beaufort, was called upon to act
as temporary Chairman. A Committee on Creden?
tials, consisting of one from each State, was ap?
pointed to examino the credentials of the dele?
During their absence the chairman called for
parties to address the Convention, and Captain T.
J. MACKEY, an ex-Confederate officer, but now ci
the Freedman's Bureau, responded seemingly foi
tbs Republican porty. His speech was a review oi
the acts of the Legislature of 1865 and denuncia?
tory of Governor OBS. He was followed by a Mist
Harper, a mulla to woman from Maryland, who is
on a lecturing tour through the South. Hei
speech was able and well delivered, though some?
what scriptural in its tone.
Other speakers followed, but the lateness of the
hour compelled ns to leave before the conclusion
of the meeting. The speakers and officers of thc
meeting were not well versed in parliamentary
tactics, and many useless discussions were causee"
op this account. The basis of repr?sentation if
the same as in the House of Representatives, ano
the same ill-feeling between th? up country one
low country was displayed.

STA?TL22ra DISCLOSURE.-We all remember tb
many rumors, constantly afloat during the late wa:
which in nine cases out of ten, upon inquiry, wei
traced to that ubiquitous and untiring travslie:
the 'Tenable gentleman who came down by tl
railroad," and we havo long since learned not i
give credence too readily to every sensation ramo
We may say we are decidedly sceptical, and on d
and "they sayiJg?Ci not received as evidence j
this covr^?Kni with all thia innate caution ar
n?tnjp?4fjup08ition to unbelief, a ohain of circu?)
B^t?cas sometimes assumes the shape ofpoerth
proof, and we can then no longer ignore it. Sm
is the ?ase at this Unie m regard to the facts at
circumstances thathave induced us to write th
paragraph. - The subject is one we hesitate to a;
presch, involving, as it doss, toe honor ax
gf?,rrli~s sT needly a ocore of our most ga.Pstsst.iftl
citizens. It is therefore a topic of great delicacy,
requiring nico handling. But wo will keep our
readers no longer in suspenso. There ia a rumor
on the Btreet, daily growing, as rumors will do
when uncontradicied, that tho City Council, at
their recent meeting in secret session-but the
fact ie, we do not beliove a single word of it
Rharod among themselves a snug amount of Uncle
Sam's green "promises to pay."
It is said that this was tbe second secret meeting i
of this "financial" character. Tho first ono took
place some months ago, when it was said a con?
siderable amount of gold coin having been found
in ono corner of the coal cellar in the City Hall
building, His Honor immediately convened the
dnzen-and-a-half of Aldermen, and shared tho
amount with them in an equitable manner. The I
gold was composed of eagles, hali and quarter j
eagles, with a few sovereigns. We did not learn
the exact amount distributed, but have heard it
was in the neighborhhood of $40,000. Whether
the Mayor got only an equal share, or whether
with a view of making "long division" short, they
allowed the Mayor two shares, and thus divided
tho "treasure" into twenty instead of nineteen
equal parts, our informant could not say.
Last week one of tho city officials having, by a j
streak of luck, found a huge pile of greenbacks,
there was a repetition of these pleasant exercises,
locked doors, secret session, long division, and a1!
wor.t home rejoicing with pockets.full of valuable
momentos of Uncle Samuel.
This, wo repeat, is the story, but we do not be?
lieve a word of it. We know all these gentlemen
too well to believe them capable of auch selfish
conduct. In fact we have it upon the positive au?
thority of two Aldermen, ono of Ward No. 2, and
one of Ward No. 4, that this report of the late
secret session of Council is altogether unauthor?
ized. We are satisfied about the matter, but if any
of our readers are still disposed to believe where
we tell them to doubt, we would refer them to No.

that in 1864 the Company borrowed $1600 in Con?

value of gold at that time. Beferred to the Special
Committee on the Fire Department.

amounting to. $213 32, wore referred to the Oom- j

Alderman HOHOTJB presented a claim of Mr. JKO.

ted that this claim had been presented in 1866, and
was then referred to tho City Attorney, who |
thought that as the claims go back as far as 1848 I
and 51, an interval of ten years occurred, to the time !
of the war, when the claim could have been made,
that it was now forfeited, but that the claimant I
could appeal to the Courts of the country. On mo?
tion of Alderman OLNEY, the matter was again re- I
ferr cd to the City Attorney with orders to report to
Tho Committee on Brick and Wooden Building?
reported favorably on the petition of JNO. F. TAY?

tal and mathematical drawing; but, after a thorough
trial of the *T"?rf~" Polygrade Lead Pencils, man?
ufactured by the American Lead Pencil Company, New

the Faber or the old English Cumberland Lead Pencil,
being a superior pencil for sketching, ornamental and
mechanical drawing, and all tho ordinary uses of a lead
Tbeso pencils are very finely graded and have a very
smooth lead; even the softest pencils hold the point well;
they are all that con be desired In a pencil. It gives mo
