kies, one of them a chimney sweep, over whose
heads some twelve summers bad passed, made a
raid on some kine in the Burnt District, and suc?

and the perpetrators arrested, but the bovines were

MAYOR'S COURT.-A colored Salon who spoke
several languages fluidly, found that when he be?
came drunk he could not talk plain English. This
disgusted tho linguist, who vonted his spite by a
fierce onslaught on tho street doors along his
route. He rang bells and created somu excite?
ment, which was only allayed by the arrest of tho
midnight marauder. He was sent for threo weeks
in retirement, where h ; could chew the bitter end
Bull pitched into Elizabeth, and she responded
gallantly, jerking his wool furiously. The lovely
pair were carried to tho Bar of Justico, where Eli?
zabeth was sent up for three divs. This affected
ber lord and master terribly, and caused him to
hand over his only $2 greenback, which ho pledg?
ed for her good behavior. Her bonds were loosed
and sho was sent on hor way rejoicing.
THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION.
This Association was organized about 1854, and
bas ever since preserved an active and vigorous
existence. Tho war interrupted their sessions,
and for a time the Association existed only in
name. Their books, papers, furniture, Ac, were
all destroyed at this period, and at their reorgan?
ization they were destitute of many essentials.
This, however, did not doter them from their
duties; the vitality of the Association remained,
and the energy of the surviving members soon
placed the Society iu itf former position. A hall
was engaged in King stn et, and though originally
a small band, they gradually increased in num?
bers uutil they wero ena'led lo make many the
the necessary adoptions to thoir hall and reading
room. The Association have recently secured a
fine ball in King street, over Messrs. FOGABTLE A
STILLMAN'S store. This is now being prepared by
the carpenters, but will soon be completed, the
Association having already moved some portion of
MILITARY MOVEMENTS.-WO learn from the Wil?
mington Poet that Major-General L. THOMAS,
Adjutant-General of the United States, left that
city on Wednesday evening, for Florence, S. C.
He is travelling throughout the South on duty, be?
ing on an inspection tour of the different Soldiers'
Cemeteries throughout the United States, and has
already visited several of the burial places in
North Carolina. Ho reports that the cemetery at
?Salisbury is in a very bad condition ; that at
Raleigh is passable ; the one at Newborn very
good, and that at Wilmington "discreditable."
General THOMAS will proceed from Florence to
this city, where he will examine into the condition
ot the iliffetent Uuion burial places at this point.
Leaving Charleston, he will visit Morris Island,
Georgetown, Hilton Head and Beaufort, thence to
Montgomery, and from Montgomery to Anderson
ville, Marietta, Savannih, Augusta, and Lawton,
Ga., after which he will make the tour through
the State of Florida, whon, after inspecting tho
cemeteries already founded, he will estabbsh two
others, one at Tallahassee, and another at Jack?
sonville. This will complete his tour of duty,
when the General will return to his post at Wash?
HALLOWEEN. There ia perhaps no night in tho
year which lias boen stamped with a moro poon
liar character than that of tho 31st of October.
Thc games then practiced are clearly n relit- of
Pagan times, tor there is nothing in tho church
observance of "All Saint's Day' ' to have origina?
ted such extraordinary notions as aro connected
.ii this li- ii val. The idea respectin." Halloween
U that it is the timo of all others when superna?
tural influence? prevail. It is a nisht set apart
for a eniver ia! walking abroad ol* spirits; anti divi?
nation ia then behoved to attain its highest power,
and the gift of calling spirits from tho vasty
deep becomes available to all who chose to avail
themselves of tao privilege. Different ritos for
the invocation of spirits arc practiced, by which
the exp?rimentera obtain a knowledge of their
future life, and learn tho result of their love af?
faire. Tho ceremonies aro now of a light and
sportive character, but there were formerly
others of a more weirtl-liko and fearful descrip?
tion, which have fallen into disuse BURNS
poem of Halloween gives ft fall description of tho
fireside customs of this night, but, iu all, the ef?
fect is tho same,-tho appearance of the future
husband or wife of the experimenter. Children
boru on this evening were supposed to possess
supernatural powers, such as the gift of second
sight, and perceiving and conversing with spirits
invisible to less favored mortals.
ALL SAINT'S PAS.-This festival, which is cele?
brated on tho first of November, follows that of |
All Hallow Evo or Halloween, and takes its origin
from tho conversion, in the seventh century, of I
tho Pantheon at Rome iuto a Christian t .ace of |
worship, and ita dedication hy Pope BONIFACE
IT. to the Blessed Virgin and all the martyrs.
This event was at first commemorated on tho first
of Hay, but was subsequently changed tc the firat
of November, which, under tho designation of AU
Saints' Day, was aet apart aa a general festival.
Ii has been retained by the At-ghcan Church. In
the Roman Catholic Churches to-day tho services
will bo as on Sunda v.
NOVEMBER. This is generally regarded as the
gloomiest mouth of the year, and was styled by
the anciont Saxons Winl-monat, or the wind
month, from tho gales that are prevalent at thia
season of the year. It waa also called the Blol
monalh, or the bloody month, from the large uura
ber of cattle that were theD slaughtered for winter
In more temperate climes there is, perhaps, less
enjoyment derivable from exterual objects in No?
vember than in any of the twelvo divisions of the
year; it has been popularly regarded aa the month
of blue devils and suicides, but in this climate it
is a bright aud cheerful season. The Indian Sum?
mer frequedtly extends through the entire month,
and the beautiful weather thon enjoyed makes it
one of tho most exhilarating montba of the year.
Except in the sunny South November has always
borne the character of a blustering, disagreeable
mouth, and leaden skies, dense fogs and heavy
rains are not unfrequont occurrences. These
gloomy features are peculiarly applicable to the
climate of England, and were happily described
by tho inimitable humorist, THOMAS HOOD, in the
following stanzas :
"No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease;
No comfortable fuel in any member;
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees;
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no buds ;
RETRIBUTIVE JUSTICE.-An old colored man, who
had sold his crop for $60, went up to Graver's
wagon yard to buy somo supplies. While there,
bo waa accosted by Joe Mitchell, a flashy colored
youth, who, finding out that he had money, rung
in with him, and having succeeded in winning the
old man's confidence, made off with the money.
The case was immediately reported to the Detec?
tives, who soon arrested the guilty party, and $53
in money and goods were recovered. Mitchell was
turned over to the Court, triod and convicted, on
last Wednesday morning. He will ' ) sentenced m
a few dava, and will be prevented from iudulging
iu his grasping propensities for some time.
THE CHARLESTON ZarruNO.- Our sprightly Ger?
man contemporary, in its last issue, saya :
"Weare verv much gratified at the kindly notico
the daily press of the city have taken of our enter?
prise, and desire to express our thanks for tho
same. Besides the object of furnishing au organ
in their own language to our German countrymen,
we have deemed it of great assistance in tho
measure of immigration, to possess a medium of
correcting many misrepresentations that aro now
disseminated in Germany by a partizau press, sub?
sidized by Northern and Western ageucies. in
this view it may perhaps appear proper to such
even of om- fellow-citizens, as aro unac-painted
with the languago of our paper, to eucourago its
circulation and advertising custom. But those
especially that have their children taught the Gor?
man, should put our Zeitung into their hands as a
valuable auxiliary of instruction. They maj take
our assurance that nothing will bo admitted into
our columns that can be in t ie least objectionable.
We have determined to avoid all criminal details,
and to write and select only such articles as shall
bo really useful. We would rather bo instructive
than spicy and entertaining, if it shall ap ear
then that our enterprise is deserving of approval,
let the public not fail to award it."
THE ARTESIAN WELL.-About Hie year 1845 it
was decided in Council to have an artesian well
bored, which should supply the city with water,
and the superintendence ot the work was assigned
to General A. H. BRISBANE. He commenced bor?
ing in the lot at the corner of Meeting and Went?
worth streets, but met with no success, and, after
a trial of some months, relinquished the attempt.
Major WELDON, the present engineer and superin?
tendent, was appointed in 1848, and commenced
operations on the same lot. The first well was com?
pleted in 1854, having been sunk to a depth of
1250 feet, and yielding, from a 3-inch bore, forty
gallons per minute at the surfaoe, and twenty-five
gallons at a height of 10 foot. The well now being
bored was commenced in 1856, and in I860 had
reached a depth ot 1200 feet. At this depth the
quick-sand was reached, and hy the influx of
water this sand was forced up the tubing nearly
300 feet. In endeavoring to remoro this sand a
bucket was caught, and the suction was so great
that it could not be removed. The war soon inter?
rupted all proceedings, and for some years the
work was abandoned and the scaffolding allowed
to decay. By the present Council an appropria?
tion o? $5000 was made for tho prosecution of tho
work, and new fixtures and apparatus wero fur?
nished. Major WELDON has labored steadily to ex?
tricate the bucket, and would have succeeded but
for somo obstructions that have recently been
lodged in the tube. Tho appropriation was not
sufficient to continuo the work, and, for the past
few wooks, it has practically been at an end.
Tho recent report o? the Retrenchment Com?
mittee advises the discontinuance ot all work on
the artesian we'l, and recommends that a man be
appointed to keep tho lot and property, at a salary
of twenty-five hundred dollars per month. This
is a sai blow to those parties who have fondly ex?
pected to have our city suppliod with water from
these wells; but the experiment baa been tried for
many years, and a large sum of money has been
literally sank in these wells without obtaining
tho anticipated result. For some time the arte?
sian well will be but a monument of the past, and
it will depend upon tho futuro prosperity of the
citv- whether the work is ever resumed.
The artesian baths have been too well patronized
to be discontinued, and we trust tho Committee
will empower the janitor of the premises to pre?
serve them in their present state of usefulness.
There are now about ten bath rooma on tho prem?
ises, and thia number could he easily increased
and the lot made remunerative. At present
thc smaller well yields about thirty gallons per
minute, while that which is choked up will still
add several gallons to this amount, with proper
attention. This supply could be made available
for bath purpose j, and both the public and the
r-ity benefitted by the enterpriae.

THE MERCANTILE INTERESTS OK FLORENCE.-Flo?
rence is, perhaps, moro closely connected with
Charleston than other interior towns. Originally
a small station, ?ho has outgrown many of her
older and more pretentious neighbors, and is to?
day ono of the moat flourishing inland towns ol
the State. Florence has developed rapidly since
the war, and her progress has been marked by an
earnest desire on the part of her business men to
improve and beautify their town. Tho railroad
work ahopa and other enterprises tonded to assist
her growth, but her advancement has boon mainly
duo to thc oxertiona of her own citizens. Her
merchants have been prominently engaged in this
work. Their stores aro supplied with every arti?
cle needed by their customers, and as they are
enabled to communicate with a large aoetion of
the country, they frequently receive large consign?
ments of cotton and provisions.
Among the business men of Florence few are
better known than Captain JEROME P. CHASE; his
extensivo anny acquaintance, added to his own
business qualifie it ions, havo enabled him to com?
mand a large trade, and his store ia ono of tho
finest in tho town. lu addition to his business au
a merchant, he receives largo consignments of
cotton from Darlington, Marion and Williamsburg
Districts. Iheso are sent lo Charleston or Balti?
more, tho taxes paid and advances made in Flo?
rence. Captain CHASE has, by theae moana, b^ilt
up quite au important cotton trade m this section,
and his factors in Charleston, Messrs. (ILAESEII,
LEE, SMITH &, Co., have received frequent con?
signments from his liando. Though au offshoot
of Charleston, Florance has been a credit to her
founders, and while lier mercantile interests are
managed by such men as Captain CHASE, there is
no doubt of her ultimate prosperity.

Messrs. Lillie d- Marshall:
GENTLEMEN : 1 used, 'uring th? past season, o:ae of
"Iugersoll's Portable Cottuu Presses," purchased of yon
last september. I have always been prejudiced in favor
of the -Screw Press," and nothing but dire necessity in?
duced me to try auy other. I take pleasure, however, ia
adding my testing ny in favor of its entire adaptation to
the wants ot a cotton plantation. It has surpassed my
most sanguine expectations. I have packed with but
two hands, yet I preter four-two at each lever. My
bales all weighed over 500 lbs. The first lot I sent to
market averaged 6621 ? .a. My impression ls that 600 lbs
is about thc capacity of the Press, and a greater number
of pounds subject the foilow-bloek to too much risk, un?
less the sides of the cotton box was increased. It would
add greatly to the value of the Press if ?ae cotton box
was ten inches longer. In haste, I am, very respect?illy
Your obedient servant, Ac, B, w. LAWTON?
P. S. I took my Press down and earned it some four
miles to pack the crop of a neighbor, who tailed to have
a "Screw" built ; he was so much pleased that he has
determined to abandon the "Screw" and purchase "In.
gersoll's Press." p. \y. L.

GENTLEMEN : I have just received yo ir I?tter ol Feb?
ruary 14th-upon my return to thisTpl^e. alteran ab?
sence of two months-md this reply aaa be too late for
your "Descriptive Circular ol' Ingersoll's Cotton Press."
The Press I used in packiug my cotton last year
worked admirably, packing, with ease from 600 to 525
lbs. With good active hands to work it, 1 am "Rafted
that from eighteen to twenty bale? ruigbt readily ta
packed in a day. , " . .
Thia Press combines the advantages ol lightness, and
consequent portability and atiapUfto (bein? easily man?
aged & any one of ordinary intelligence). Great com
pressing force, with little motive power, and "last but
not least," it is worked entirely by hand, thus saving for
the farm horses the bald labor imposed upon them by
the use of the ordinary "Sere?.
