DECEASE OF A WELL Known CLERGYMAN.
Throueh a letter rec ived iu this city wc learn the
painful news of the death of Rev. William Croo!-,
widely known through tho State as one of tho old?
est and most laborious Ministers cf tho Methodist
V Episcopal Church, South, in this State. He
peacefully breathed his last on Monday evening.
28th November, at half-past C o'clock, at nis resi?
dence near Fort HUI, York District.
A SENSATION PARADE.-Yesterday afternoon three
attaches of thc Bia k Crook company created no
little excitement on the streets by attiring them?
selves ia burlesquo costumes, f.ud traversing thc
popular routes at a Gilpin speed, on black charg?
ers. The young "nigs" were especially edified,
and followed in an unmitigated swarm, cheering
at the top of *heir voices. One of tho mounted
advertisers was arrayed in green tights, with tas?
sels, &c, dopending from his skull cap covering a
masked face; the other two were coit jmed in red
flannel, and rodo in tho rear of their ostensible
leader. They finally wound np their doing3 by re?
tiring to the yard of the Hibernian Hall, at tho
gate of which a host of juveniles gathered, and
only left when satisfied that tho sensationista
would appear no more.
AN OASIS.-lt is refreshing these times, as it is
rare, to meet any one not as "blue" as all tho rest
of ns. People from the country used to bo looked
upon as "green,"-but the huo now most preva?
lent among the gentlemen from tho rural parts ia
unquestionably of tho cerulean order. "C jtton tait"
- "factors' advances"-"hard times"-"st*y laws"
-and other such cheerinl topics strike thc ear al
every turn. This is the case not h^ro or there,
in a few unfortunate localities, but everywhere
throughout the South-perh ips we ought to say al?
most everywhere; for a friend, just irom Abbeville,
informs us that during a recent tcur through that
District, ho was gratified to ?od the planter.; not
disposed to grumble more than usually at this sea?
son of the year, to admit even that they have mad :
fair average crops of corn and of cotton; and that
while tuey have made no money, they have at
least the wherewithal to live couifo.tably daring
the next twelve months. Our friend is a reliable
T man, and we are therefore bound to accept even
bis statement in relation to the fact of actually
having seen with his own evos gundry "shoats"'
running at largo in that District. Sausages and
spare-ribs, therefore, are not countod among thc
unattainable luxuries ot our Abbeville Mends.
EVERY DOO HAS HIS DAY.-The dog lax has
always been a bone of eonteation in tba State
Legislature, each Representativo urging -hat cer?
tain dogs should be exempt from the tat, bul ii
has generally been decided that dogs must not
live a useless life, and their owners were compelled
to contribute their quota to the support of tho
Government. This enactment bas had but little
effect on the canine species ; they have flourished
and multiplied, a'..ci each census has sbown an
increase in their numbers. Legislation has failed
to control their growth, and it was wisely resoircd
to let each dog have his day, and do bis utmost to
aid the country by increasing the revenue. In
this connection, it is gratifying to stato that, in
the new tax bill lately prepared by GenoraJ
Canby, this clause has been retained, without tay
debate, and the dogs will hereafter be consid.-rcd
an influential class in the community, though as
yet they have not advanced sufficiently in the
social scale to be accorded tho rights of sufiiv.ge.
The black and tans are, however, by far the most
popular, and it is fair to presume that, with thc
increased advantages now afforded, they will
eventually become far advanced in civilization, and
will resent the poll-tax as an indignity. Omn?3
emit diem suam hibet.
?IKETTNO OF GERMANS THIS EVENING.-Our Ger?
man fellow-citizens we learn from ti io "Charles toner
Zeitung" of this morning, will meet at thc engine
house in Chalmers-street at 7 j o'clock this ovtning
to consider the propriety of sending back by thj
Bremen bark "Gause," ten or moro tierces of rice?
for the relief of the destitute in Sweden. This, it
is proposed, should be dono by tho Germans of
> Charleston, ES a thank-offering, for the preserva?
tion of their frier.?s during a long sea-voynge, and
their safe arrival at this port. As they, moreover,
came in on Thanksgiving Day, there is a peculiar
propriety in our German fellow-citizers making
this acknowledgment to tho goodness of Provi?
It is proposed, also, we understand, to prosent
to Captain Wieting a new suit of colors for the ,
"Gauss," in appreciation of his urbanity, his skil- ,
ful seamanship, his many q ulities of head and ,
neart, which make him the right man in tho right
place. Such a mark of esteem is specially his due ,
from the Germans in Charleston, as it is under- ?
stood he h\s come to this pori at a positivo los?. ,
rather than carry a double freight to New York, or
other Northern port3-all because of his friendshp
for our city and her people.

GERMAN IMMIGRANTS.-Below we publish aa in- '
teresting letter to the Ccmmicsioner of Immigra?
tion for this State, General John A. Wagener, hom
Mr. F. Melchers, who has, for some months, been
presenting in Germany the interests of South Car?
olina as a homo for the emigrant. Y>V foar Mr. M.
will be disappointed in regard to any appropria?
tion from the Legislature, either tor this or any
other object ; reason-there being no Legislature
of South Carolina. We hope, however, that our
merchants will take into consideration thc sugges?
tion throwu cut by Mr. Melchers, and do what lies
in their pon r.' to prevent the failure of an etitc r
prise that promises to contribute so much to th?
material no less than to the political prosperity of
OLDENBURG, November 15,1567.
Genera' John A. Wakener, Commissioner :
DEAR SIR,-By to-d-iy's mail I send you a variety
of papers, among them you will notice a paper
irom friend Herman Meier, which he is now pub
liBhing. I have written to him, and expect s.Oun
to see some articles about South Carolina in Li?
paper. A new Emigrant paper bas been started
in Bremen; I sent au advertisement, and the edi?
tor wrote a email notice at the rate of 6 gr. per
Une. It ia hardly worth it, as tho paper stems to
be entirely in the"interest of California. Oorlriend
Behre's paper has also been started in Hanover,
gad he has kept his word and wrote an excellent
article about South Carolina. 1 will send you a

empt to advise personally with their crediton
R'so'xco', That a Committeo be named by th
the President to draft a petition to GenoralCanb
to auspend all bail writs for debts contracted prc

Tho culture cf cotton is a matter which interests
tho pooplo of tho ifholo United States; it is a pow?
erful agent in adjusting tho balance ot trade with

For the firrt time since our organization we have

by t e hand of death, and while we bow in sub

it becomes our duty to express our great regret at

right man, and by his honesty and puritv of char?
acter, won the respect and esteem of bis fellow
men. Ile has occupied several positions of honor,

good. At a mooting of the Board thc following

ACCIDENT TO DAN. CASTELLO'S MENAGEKIE.
From tho "Mobile News" we learn that on the 25th
ult., a portion of tho train of the Mobilo and Great
Northern Bail way was thrown off the track:
Thc cars had on board Castello's and Van Am
burg's Menagerie. The accident was caused by
the springing of a rail, and ?ix cars weru precipi?
tated down a forty foot embankment-three plat?
form and two stock cars. The cages of thc ani?
mals were upon the platform cars, and were thrown
off, smashing them up. A lion, three bears, two
tigers, hyeua and hippopotamus were thereby
turned loose, and produced much excitement.
One of the bears getting hold of a beautiful Amer?
ican deer made short work of her. After great
difficulty all of tho animals were secured with tho
exception of tho hyena, who showed fight; she
was finally knocked" senseless by a blow from a
heavy pioco of wood and thrown into a cage. Mr.

are presented, .md those persons who wish to se?
cure a serviceable suit for a small outlay should
have nu eye to their own interest, and invest im?
mediately at Messrs. E. Bates A Co.
HAnpWAUE. -There are perhaps few business
houses that havo a more extended reputation than
the hardware establishment of Messrs. Hart A Co.,
at the coiner of Eing and .Market streets. Tho
business has leen conducted at thu stand for
many years, and Hart's hardware store is known
throughout thc State. Since tho war the business
was resumed at the same old stand, and a new and
full stock ol'every article was cbta.ned. Messrs.
Hart A Co., are now prepared to furnish their
friends with a full selection ol hardware that will
meet with their approval.
FROM TUE WEST LSDIL9-Secretary Seward's
proposition to annex several of the smaller West
India Islands hae found favor with man / persons,
and Mr. John B. Togni, an enterprising fruit im?
porter of tuis City, has recently obtained a large
supply of the productions of these islands, which
he bas on exhibition at his stand, No. 125 Meeting
street. Mr. Togni bas a full stoek o; fruits, se

numerous city and country cu?'.omers. He deals
also in jellies, preserved fruits and other luxuries
indispensable to the enjoyment of the Christmas

Marshall's establishment ?a stocked with every ar?
ticle in thc hardware lino. As most porsons re?

CHEAP FcnsiTtjEE.-With tho approach of the
Christmas holidays goods of every description aro
being sold at lower rates and inducements offered
to the public to invest. Thia is especially mtice
ablo in certain branches of business, but particu?
larly in the furniture trade. A great reduction
has been made in the prices, and valuable sets
can be procured for a moderate outlay. Mr. R.
White has recently lowered the tariff on his stock
at the large furniture wardrooms on the earner of
Meeting and Wentworth streets, and now offers
to his customers bargains in furniture that aro
seldom equalled. Mr. White is determined to
make the holidays a merry season, and has gene?
rously placed his prices within the compass of the

APERIENT, and what are its effects? These are ques?
tions which the great American pubiie has a right to
ask, aud it also lias a right to expect a candid and satis?

Jahne cathartic, alterative and tonie, and is most rare
fidly prepared in the form of a snow white powder, con?
taining all the wonderful medical properties of the far
famed Seltzer Springs of Germany.
Of its effects WP would say that those who have lested
the preparation aro the best judges, and Uley declare
over their own signatures that tho preparation will
promptly relieve indigestion. Regulate thc flow of the
bile. Cure every species of headache. Tranquilize tho
nervous nyptem. Refresh and invigorate the weak. Miti

Faith Well Founded.
In old time;., at the commencement of every season, it
was the fashion to take a strong cathartic as a safeguard
against a change of temperature. It was a w r=e than
senseless practice. The people of our day understind
the matter better. Instead of depleting tho system they
reinforce it. In tho method they adopt they exhibit a
wise discrimination. Instead of resorting to tao vitiated
stimulants of commerce, or any of tho compounds deriv?
ed from them, they put their faith in the only absolutely
pure invlgoraut procurable in tho market-HOSTET
TER'S STOMACH BI i TERS. '.(heir faith is well found?
ed. Never bas any tonic medicino been prepared with
such scrupulous precision and conscientious cire. It is
a vegetable compound of which overy ingredient is
sound, wholesome, and medicinal in the true sente of
the word. Now, we have three prominent national com
plsints. One half of the adult population of ihe United
States suffer more or less, either from diseases of the
stomach, derangements of tho liver, or affections of the
kidneys. In no other land under Heaven aro these mala?
dies so general as in this country, and HOS ?ETTER'S
RITTERS is a spociflc for them all, unless organic in
their origin, and, therefore, beyond cure. And let those
who are fortunate enough to be exempt from them at
present understand one great fact, viz: that an occa-uon
al use of this vitalizing tonic will as certainly prevent
them as the sun will prevent the earth i cn? ff-ezing
whore its genial beams descend.
