PETIT LARCENY.-Morris Brown, an enterprising
freedman, wishing to improve bis standing in so?
ciety, stole a pair of shoes, but was discovered
and sent to 'hs Guardhouse.
Allen Jackson and William Wilson, both highly
colored, were charged with adorning themselves
with stolen raiment, some of the missing propertjr
being found upon them. The charge was made,
by Darnel Alston and Thomas Riggs, both colored,
they stating that the theft had been committed on
B. Rodding' boat, at Southern wharf, while the
owners of the clothing were absent. They had a
hearing before the Mayor this morning.
A NABBOW ESCAPH.-In passing the curves of
the road the speed of the street cars is always in?
creased, as it is extremely difficult to stop the
horse at that time. This fact is generally known,
and all persons avoid the track when the car is
heard; but yesterday a school boy endeavored to
run across the street, at the corner of King and
Calhoun, while Conductor Reib's car was passing,
but tripped and fell on tho track in front of tho
horse. Tho exertions of the driver, Hogan, were
barely sufficient to stop the horse, and the wheels
were in a few inches of tho boy's hoad before this
was effected. If the driver had been lesa prompt
in his movements the car would have pased over
r the boy, and, in all probability, caused his death.
KLEPTOMANIA-The propensity of the freedman
to appropriate tbs property of others seems un?
controllable. The jail has r.o terrors, for he is no
sooner released than he resumes his habit of
pilfering, and in many cases becomes an expert in
his calling. Nothing comes amiss to these pro?
fessional thieves, but we were surprised yesterdav
to hear a complaint made by a citizen that the
h'ght-fingcred gentry had been removing tho
brick from his sidewalk. What can be the object
of this raid it is difficult to say, as burnt bricks aro
plentiful, and the salo extremely limited, but it
would be useless to endeavor to find a cause for
the theft. It is a morbid disease that appears un?
controllable, and can only be prevented by the
vigilance of the police.
THE CHRISTMAS TREE certainly is the greenest
tree flourishing in field or forest at any time du?
ring the twelve months. It is reflected on the in?
fant imagination, hence those memories remain
ever green. Last night again we treated ourselves
to a peep of the gay scene, presented at Commins'
Hall where a rich aud rare combination of attrac?
tive objects tempt poor mortals of the masculine
gender into unbounded liberality. Poor fellows !
they cannot help themselves. They are beset by
the sweetest and prettiest of pretty girls, and
asked in most bewitching smiles, "to take a
grab," or a "chance," etc. Who would not liko to
take a chance under such auspices? Everything
passed off pleasantly again last night, and the
crowd in attendance was larger than ever-a per?
fect jam-notwithstanding the Japanese attrac?
tion at Hibernian Hall. The beautifully illumina?
ted arch over the doorway looked cheerfully; so
did the large and splendid iced fruit cake, won at
Mrs. Col. Ringgold's table "for the NEWS Office,"
which, a j a sweet messenger from the Christmas
Tree, spread joy and gladness In the dark regions
ol' type and printer's ink. The United States Band
discoursed sweet music, greatly enlivening the 02
WIDOWS' HOME BAZAAR.- A number of ladies of
this city, whose hearts continually prompt them
to do good and generous deeds, seeing much
misery and suffering around them, cast about to
devise a plan by which they could relieve somo of
these unfortunates. They resolved to establish a
home for the wives, mothers and daughters of
Confederate soldi ars who have fallen in tho war.
Many of these ladies, onco living in affluence, are
now redaced to straitened circumstances, and one
of the chief wanta of their present condition is a
suitable home. This hun been established, and al?
ready a limited number of ladies bless the liberal
hands that have furnished thia boon. The Bazaar
has been organized to further this charitable pur?
pose. The ladies who have it in charge have been
unwearied in their exertions for weeks and months
preparing for this exhibition, and wo doubt not,
when it is thrown open to tho public this evening,
the visitors will be delighted with the brilliancy of
the display, the variety of tho wares exposed for
sale, the taste '.hat conceived the arrangement,
and the delicate hands that executed it all.
Charleston contributed literally to the Hollywood
Association Bazaar last Spring, and, if we mistake
not, through the energetic efforts of some of the
same ladies who preside over tne present enter?
prise. The Richmond Bazaar waa a brilliant suc?
cess, and we fee! confident the Charleston Bazaar
will be no less. We commend this noble chanty
to ail our friereis and fellow-citizens, and hope
that the good ladies who are so zealously engaged
in this good work may be made glad in the rich
harvest they miy reap of their labora.
THE JAPANESE JCOGLEBS last night attracted a
? k'ood audience, considering tho tightness of the
tunes. At the appointed hour the curtain rose
and disclosed the Japs in their national costume.
The boys All Right and Dan VYebster indulged in
ground and lofty tumbling that would have made
the most experienced circus actor blush. This
troupe is the only one in America that has Japan?
ese women, who in their strange and picturesque
garb, with the si s jlar looking instruments from
which they extract what, to Japanese ears, is most
delightful music The suspension act, by the
celebrated Kee Chee brothers, in which ono sus?
pends himself by the feet from a small trapeze
near the ceiling, and holds in his hands a long
bamboo polo, upon which his two brothers per?
form all sorts of marvellous feats, is well worth
seeing. Thc top spinning was one of the most at
f-active and marvellous features of the exhibition.
Aside from the wonders of the performance, the
peculiar native music, and the intelligible remarks
volunteered by the master of ceremonies, were
listened to with great pleasure. It is an enter?
tainment in which interest is kept up from begin?
ning to end. The strange dress and stranger ap?
pearance of the performers, their wonderful feats,
tricks, startling deeds and amusing motions, their
music-all combine to kcop the mind attracted, to
cause laughter or astonishment, ant1 bring fcrth
most unbounded applause. Every man, woman
and child should pay them * visit, if for nothing
more than the knowledge of the marvellous things
(he Japanese can do.
THE BALL FEVER-This disease, which first at?
tacked tho American public iu tho shape of ba?e
ball ou the brain, hus gradually changed some of
ita symptoms, though tho ball is still kept moving.
The bat hes been exchanged for the shinnio sticK,
and iustead of hurling tho ball through tho an\ it
is now skimmed along tho ground, propelled by
the above mentioned shinnio sticks. These sticks
ari' Dot unlike a wee bit of shiUelah, with a crook
at the end, which is used to catch the ball and sot
it in motion, and they are tho favorite weapon of a
host of mixed juveniles, who indulge in the fascina?
ting shinnie game. Tho burnt district is tho play?
ground for the youthful ballists, and from carly
morn to deny eve tho voices of tho contending
factions may be heard sounding far above
i he clack o:" shinnio sticks. The fashion of this
world passeth UT %J, and though tho noble game of J
blinnie is new t) 3 rage, and Vouug America scorns
determined to f o on with the ball, it may soon be
brought to a clo?e, and the shinnie sticks laid on
tho sholf fora season.

THE STBEET RAILROAD.-Tho 17th of December,
1867, is the first anniversary of tho opening of the
street railroad in Charleston, au enterprise thai
achieved success in tho first year of its existence.
For years the subject of street railways had been
mooted in Charleston, but it was always consider?
ed a dangerous innovation on old customs, and
it was only since the war that the present company
1 succeeded in obtaining a charter and permission
to commence operations. Their exertions in be?
half of the public are well known, and the success
they have attained is the reward bestowed by their
grateful constituents. Sinco tho road was first
opened, the Rutledge-street line has been improv?
ed, aDd the routo to the Battery completed. New
cars havo been added, and every effort made by
the ."President and managers to add to the comfort
of the travelling public. Tho books of tho road
show a steady increase of travel, and a correspond?
ing increase in tho profits, especially during the
past summer, wheu the visitors to the Battery
took the cars fairly by storm. Without entering
into particulars, we can truthfully assert that since
Charleston was a city, there has been no enter?
prise exhibited that has met with more favor than
the street railroad, and tae first anniversary is but
an index of those that will follow, each showing
increased prosperity and popularity.
.SLEETING CABS.-The Sunday train from Augus?
ta brought to this city a fino sleeping car, which
was on exhibition yesterday at thc South Carolina
Railroad yard, between John and Ann streets. It
was visited Juring the dav by a largo number of
persons, including many ladies, who subjected it
to a critical examination, and the opinion was gen?
eral that it was perfect in every detail. These cars
are mado ty Gilbert Bush & Co., Troy, N. Y., and
belong to the firm of Pullman, Kembali & Ramsoy,
of Atlanta, Ga., who have purchased the patents
and have tho exclusive right to uso sleeping cars
on the Southern Railroads. Thoy are furnished
?nth every convenience, and tho weary traveller is
hailed to rest in a comfortable bed instead of dislo?
cating his neck in a vain attempt to woo the drowsy
god. Each car has accommodations for forty
eight to fifty persons, the seats being divided
into sections, each capable of holding four
persons. At either end of the cars aro state?
rooms whero a travelling party can bo entirely
private. Tho furniture and trimmings of the cars
are in perfect tasto, aud oxeced in sploudor of fin?
ish any that Lave been econ in this city. At first it
would appear difficult to transform a car seat into
a comfortable bed, but the machinery is admirably
arranged, and the bed-room provided is far supe?
rior to the close berths often found on stcaraors,
and the travellor who takes a ticket in these cars
arises from his night's iest bright and refroshed.
Each car is provided with a conductor and a por?
ter, and the greatest care is taken to secure thc
comfort of the passengers. Diagrams of tho car
aro supplied, with each berth marked, and month?
ly reports aro furnished of the wash list, &C, no
sheets being allowed to remain on the bed after it
has been used, but all are clean and fresh. By
the payment of two dollars, the travollcr can secure
u bed in either the first or second tier in the sec?
tion; the 6tate-rooms being held at $5, and the
bridal chamber or large apartment at $8. Tho
far in question was named Florida, and was de?
signed for thc Savannah aud Jacksonville Railroad.
lt left for Augusta last night.

worth the consideration of all who are engaged in
agricultural pursuits to call and examino them.
GREU CEAXUE.-In passing up King-street yes?
terday wc were surprised to find that our old
friend, Mr. M. Klein, has left his small fruit
stand, and removed to the opposite side, where he
has enlarged his borders, and opened a large and
handsome store at No. 339 King-street. Mr. K. is
an honest, hard working man, deserving success,
and wo Bincorely hope he may attain it. Ho under?

He has a good stock, and invites the most critical
examination of customers, *
AUCTIONED AND INSURANCE AGENT.-We ask tho
attention of our citizens to the card of Mr. Honour,
which will be seen in our columna thi8 morning.
At this moment, iu eouscquoneu of tho disasters
brought uu most Southern Companiee by the war,
nearly all tho risks iu tho South are taken by
Northern institutions; but though this may bo to
a dogrco unavoidable at present, it should be re?
stricted as much as possible. Our citizens would
therefore do well to patronize John L. Honour, Esq.,
whoso integrity is well known to our whole com?
HOLIDAY Gins.-Von Sau ten's Bazaar well de?
serves its name, for it contains every article that
is i are and curious. A glance at his stock assured
US that he would have no difficulty in pleasing nil
of his customers, for his stock is large, and com?
prises every variety of fancy .roods, toys, gifts,
Ac. Among the curious games which Mr. von
Santen has introduced from Germany is the hiero?
glyphs, which has been pronounced the most
wonderful, beautiful, anti instructive home game
and puzzle ever invented. Wo have seen the key,
and can assuro our readers i hat this is even so.
By correctly grouping together tho prominent
objects in each picture, a given word is invariably |
pronounced without the employment of a single,
letter. A key, and all necessary instructions
accompany each box.
Wc shall not explain tho hieroglyphs, but leave
it to those who think that they can obtain fifty
cents' worth of enjoyment by investing in a box.
Mr. von Santen has every variety of toys, fancy
goods, Ac., that aro suited for Christmas gifts,
and the friends of Santa Claus should not forget j
to visit his headquarters.

Suggestion? " thc Season.
KUig Winter hos waved his eroptre over the land,
whitening thc earth, bridging thc streams, and turning
the water-falls to pendant crystal. Upon animated as
well as inanimate nature, the frigid atmosphere produces
a marked effect. The Mood is driven from the surface
of tho body back upon its inner fountains, and Chills
and Fever, Rheumatism, Pulmonary Diseases. Bilious?
ness, and unpleasant disorders of the stomach and
bowels are apt to be the results.
Now, what is require! to fortify the system against
the attacks of disease thus engendered ? Clearly a TONIC,
which, acting through the stomach upon the circulation
and tho nervous system, shall redetermine the vital
fluid to tho aurfaco, and brace the nerves of motion and
sensation. But this is not all that is required. With
tho TOXIC must bo combined such ALTERATIVE and
REGULATING agencies as will tend to keep tho whole ani?
mal machinery "in good working order."
These three grand requisites of a Winter restorative
exist, in their fullest perfection, in HOSTETTER'S
STOMACH BITTERS, which are compounded of the
purest vegetable stimulants and extracts, ol the most
genial and healthful roots, barks and plants that the
herbalists and botanists of the world have yet discov?
ered. C December IC
