THE Fiasr SHAD OF THE SEASON. -Tho guests of j
the Chaileston Hotel wore treated this morning to
an unusual delicacy. Thc first sbad of the season
were served up, not in infinitisimal slices, but
quantities sufficient to furnish each plate with
liberal allowance. Major Horbach is ono of those
fortunate individuals who knows how to keep
hotel, and he is determined that his guestsjsball
never want for any delicacy that can be procured.
The shad in question wero caught in Savannah
rivor, and it is the opinion of the knowing ones
that they had made the trip solely for the benefit
of the Charleston Hotel guests.

A MAONTJTCX>~ CHRISTMAS GIFT.-There is on
exhibition at Messrs. H. H. Badenhop & Co.'s res?
taurant, in Moetirr street, a magnificent gold
card ease, which win DC raffled in a few dava. This
v .Be is exquisitely chased, and would make a rich
and elegant Christmas present. The case is val?
ued at $120, but will be raffled at $30, at $2 per
chance. Mauy of these are already taken, and the
list is rapidly filling up. Those persons who de?
sign continuing the good old practico ot present
making at Christmas time, will have an opportu?
nity to indulge in this pleasure by taking a chance
and ./inning the card case.
TRIAD AND SENTENCE OF A RAIDBOAD ROBBER.
The Military Commissi >n which hos been in ses?
sion for some time at Columbia, engaged in tho
trial of the parties concerned in robbins; the South
Carolina Railroad on the 8th November, 18G6, have
recently rendered a decision in tho case of E. Car?
ter Harris, white. Harris, it will bo remembered,
was charged with complicity in tearing up the
track near Columbia, and in investigating that
case the tacts concerning the robl ?ry were elicited.
The evidence was clear, and the Commission sen?
tenced Harris to one year's hard labor at Fort
Macon, North Carolina.
THE CHRISTMAS THEE.-Commins' Hall was
crowded ou Saturdav evening with visitors, anx?
ious to behold the new tree of knowledge and
learn what fate had in store for them in the shape
of gifts. The tree is, however, only one of the
attractions of the hall, as tables on every side, pre?
sided over by fair tempters, beguile the passer-by
to pause and invest. Supper is furnished, with
every luxury for the palate. Artemus Ward's
Show IB alway? the centre of a curious crowd.
Jacob's Well was sparkling and inexhaustible, lt
would bo a hoi eless task to enumerate all the
attractions that cluster around the tree and ren?
der the hall so popular. They must be seen to be
appreciated. Those who have not yet been there
ehould, by all means, go to-night.
Tho fair sex have a natural desire "o beautify
themselves, and seldom fail. They know how to
shop, what to select and how to make it up, but
they are not all of them posted on tho proper
places to visit where they can obtain everything at
fabulously low prices. Wo can but repeat the ad?
vice previously gi von; search the NEWS, for there
will be seen thc advertisements of Mesars. Fogar
tie i: Stillman, J. Hyman & Co., Goudkop & beuth
ner, and others.
Whoever wishes lo purchase Christmas presents
will be exceedingly hard to please if he or she can?
not find at W. G. Whildon & Co.'s something to
suit tho most critical ta?to. The segar boxes, jew?
elry boxes, fine dr.ssins cases, rcsowood and ma?
hogany writing desks, ohvo wood boxes, work
boxes, crockery, glassware, and other articles ad?
vertised by this firm, comprise only a small portion
of the beautiful ?rdelos they have just reeei.ed
for tho holidavs.
THE ASHLEY RIVER PHOSPHATE?*.-The first ex?
portation of the valuable deposit* of phosphates
from their location on Ashley River, near this
city, took place on Saturday last, bj the steamship
Falcon, for Bal imoro, which vessel carried among
her cargo a shipment of sixteen ticrcps of this
manure. It is our hope that this is but the com?
mencement of a large and important trade, which
will assist to au important extend in lifting thc for?
tunes of some of our citizens from their present
depressed condition. We hope, however, that
those, interested in these deposits may avoid, so
far as may be, tue policy hitherto almost unqua!i<
fiedly pur-ued by our people, of secdins: off crery
production of the country iu a raw state, when, by
a little enterprise, it might be placed ia a form
which add largely to its value and to the wealth of
the State. It can hardly be disputed, we think,
that we will never be wealthy and great ou simple
agriculture and the exportation of raw product?.
The Falcon carried out rice lor Cincinnati and St.
Louis, cottons for Baltimore and Philadelphia, and
although steamers are going through "dull times"
at present, this line appears to be doing well.
YESTERDAY-Though tho weather was disagree?
ably cold and windy, tho different churches yester?
day wcro well filled. During tho day tho usual
services were hold ac the churches, and iu the
evonintr a discourse was delivered to tho Young
alon's Christian Association in Trinity Church by
the pastor, tho Rov. E. J. Moynardic. This may
bo Mr. Moynardio'slast sermon, as, until tho re?
sult of tue Conference is .known, his stay in tho
city is undecided.
COROKSR'R IsiQtrssT.-Coroner Whiting held au
inquest yesterday, at tho Mazyck-streot Hospital,
on the body of Nelson Johnston, coiored, the pris?
sier whose arrest at the Seven Mile Pump ?as
mentioned some days since. The injuries received
l?y Johnston rendered amputation of his leg neces?
sary and it was taken off above the knee; but be
.sank under thc operation, and the jury returned a
vertuet that Locarno to his death from hemor
vragc occasioned by injuries rcceivod whilo jump?
ing from tho cars at thc Seven Milo Pump.
PERSONAL.- Thoso persons who aro fond of
studying tho variations i:i proper names aro re
ierrod to tho list of hotel arrival? published else?
where, and ihoy will see registered at tho Pavilion
Hotel a list of names that would puzzle thc ortho?
graphical student. Tho Makado Japaueso Troupe
arrived in this city yesterday morning. K there
ia anything iu a name, they havo some that are
long enough, and sufficiently unpronounceable, to
attract immediate attention and dub thom foreign?
ers from alai off.
SNOW-Tho telegram i (rom tho North unite In
.itating thr.t tho present spell of cold weather is
almost unprecedented at tbis:early date. At Bing
hampton, New York, the thermometer was twontv
tbree degrees below zero, and it was snowing
heavily. Tho same snow bas been reported at
other Northern cities, but wc are informed by
Capt. Moore, of the South Caroliua Railroad, that
tho effects of the storm have been felt in this Stato,
particularly in the Upper Districts. It was snewin?
at Columbia Saturday morning, and at Timmons
villc thc snow was four inches deop. Tko Not th?
em mail failed to come to time on account of the
detentions caused by tho snow storm.
AMUSEMENTS-The week now opening promises
to bo a lively one. Tho programme of public
entertainments is sufficiently varied to please all
amusemout seokcrs. Ia the first place, tho Christ?
mas tree will bloom with gifts for six nights
longer. The Japs will commence their peculiar
performances to-night, giving us outsido barbari?
ans some idea of Asiat.c jugglery. Last, but by no
means least, tho Bazaai of the Ladies' Home in
Brcad-strcot will be opened on Tuesday. Thia, we
hear, ie to bo one of the most attractive entertain?
ments of its kind over opened in our city, so popu?
lar is thc charity involved that every: ody is sure
to be there.
