The Burning of the Raleigh.
THIRTEEN MORL SATKD-TWENTT-FOUB STILL
Boat No. 3, from tho Raleigh, it now appears,
reached Kiawah Inlet in safety on Christmas morn?
ing, having thirteen persona aboard. Thc boa*,
was abandoned, and the crew and passengers were
piloted by some colored people across tho country
to this city. These are tho names of tho thirteen
additional who are now known to be saved:
Dr. J. Cass, passenger.
Lawrence Sweeney, passenger.
James Brady, passenger.
John Sloan, passenger.
Angelo Garragan, passenger.
Robert Phoenix, orew.
Charles P. Marshman, Jr., acting quartermaster.
Nathaniel Boyi, crew.
Wm. Welsh, crtw.
Eugene H. Elb' s, crew.
James Penfield, crew.
Michael Lark n, crew.
Patrick Barragan, crew.
Thirty-one persons in all from the Raleigh have
uow arrived here, and of those still issing it is
nearly certain that ten were drowned. There is
still some hope that Captain Marshman and those
on tho ship wich him when the first boats left have
been picked up by a passing vessel.
The steamtug Christiana left port on Christmas
day on a cruise in search of the wrecked part>.
but discoveied nothing. Sho, however, spoke the
steamships Marmion and North Point and in?
formed them of the disaster. The Pilot Boy also
went out on the same errand, but discovered
ARREST OF A FOWL TRDIF.-A uegro named
Miller attempted to make his Christmas out of a
confiding countryman by offering to sell hi.-,
turkeys. The countryman agreed, but found that
he was sold, as neither negro or turkeys weresoen
again. He laid the case before the detectives,
who soon had the crafty Miller in bonds. He
stated that he had sold the turkeys tor two dol?
lars, but the money was gone. He was detained
and will be tried for theft.
A RCNAWAI.-Yesterday morning, while the
Turners were coming up King-street, preceded by
a band of music, a horse that was in a buggy uear
the sidewalk became alarmed at the noise and
dashed off. Unlike most, he boldly faced the
music, and caused the band to scatter and the
Turners to turn aside. Fortunately tho negro
groom kept a firm grip on the rein, and succeeded
in controlling the excited animal, who did no
damage beyond breaking a shaft.
INQUEST.--An inquest was held yesterday on tho
body of Mr. Campbell, who died from injuries re?
ceived by falling from a car on the South Caro?
lina Railroad. He fell between the platforms, and
the rear car passed over him, inflicting what wore
supposed to be slight bruises. After his removal
to Charleston it appeared that he had received
some internal injuries, which resulted in his death.

that there ia no truth whatever in a rumor circu?
lated yesterday to the effect that some of the crew
of the Raleigh had been refused a bee passage to
New York by their fine. They inform us that aa
soon as the crew arrived they directed Captain
Shackford, of the Moneka, to take the whole of
them to New York free of charge. It was after?

should divide the crew amoDg them, and whon

THE WIDOWS' HOME BazAAB^After an interval
of a few cays the Bazaar was reopened last night,
and crowds has'en'.-d to resow their acquaintance
with its difieren, attractive features. Thc ladies
have not been itLe during the recess, as tho ap?
pearance o? the taDles proved. The grotto of eggs,
the fortune-teller, the archers tree and tho other
popular attractions were attended by a large num?
ber of guests. At each booth some DOW article
was exhibited which gave an' air of freshness to
even the old habitues of tho Bazaar. The con?
fectionery table was literally covered with delica?

preferred sweetmeats to greenbacks, whilo the
supper room was not neglected and its choice

SENTENCE TN THE HARTMAN CASE-THE REMARES
OF GENEB? CANBY.-IU November last Mr. E. F.
Hartman, of Rantowle's, was arrested by some
negroes and brought at night to thia city. When
the party arrived here Mr. Hartman was released
and the negroes were arrested and turned over to
the military authorities. The negroes, viz: Squash
Bowles, Sandy Stoplight, Tom Bryan, and Peter
Brown, were tried by military commission and
sentenced to two years' imprisonment, and this
sentence has been mitigated by General Canby to
two months' imprisonment at hard labor.
In announcing the sentence in General Orders
Nc. 159, General Canby says:
H. It appears, from the investigation of the
foregoing case, that on the afternoon of Saturday,
November 2, a dispute occurred between two per?
sons, uot parties to this trial, and that the inter?
ference of a third peraon resulted in a breach of
the peace, the merits of which disturbance have
not been investigated. The cause of the. negro
was espoused by some of his friends, who, to the
number of eight or ten, went to tho house of Hart?
man, and demanded satisfaction for the alleged
assault. Atter some angry discussion the party
left and applied to a neighboring magistrate tb
obtain a wai rant for the arrest of Hartman. This,
for some reason which does not appear, was re?
fused, and the party then retired and announced
their determination to take Hartman to Charles?
ton and turn him over to tho military authorities.
'The prisoners allege, in substance, that ) volun?
teered to come with them; that there was o arrest
and no violence; but the evidence is clear that :he
volunteering was under the constraint of threats
that force would be employed if ne refused. Upon
reaching the city Hartman was released, and the
arresting party" was turned over to the military
authorities, and brought to trial upon the charge
of falso imprisonment.
It does not appear from the evidence, that the
prisoners had any other motive in making thc
arrest than to procure, by proper means, tue re?
dress ol a wrong that had been inflicted upon one
of their companions. Failing to obtain action
from the no^rest civil authority, they assumed the
ower to arrest und bring tho alleged offender
efore the nearest militan authorities. This as?
sumption was a legitimate deduction from the
laws of the State? and the practice toward the
black population: but this power is subject to gross
abuses, and its exercise should not be permitted
except in the case of grave crimes, or when there
is manifest dauger that the delay in procuring the
necessary warrant will enable thc criminal to
escape. lhere was no such necessity in this case,
and both tho arrest and the maimer in which it
was made are without sufficient justification
'Tho Commanding General thinks this is a proper
occasion to mvito attention to the fact that seve?
ral of the disorders that have recently been brou ht
to his notice have resulted from the criminal con?
do Jt of white iueu to the blacks, and the indiff?r?
ence with which well founded complaints of the
latter have been treated bv local magistrates
This course is not an impartial administration oi'
justice, nor is it Well calculated to preserve tin
peace of the community.
To thia last paragraph particular attention is
called. No such cases have come to our knowledge,
and we are satisfied that the opinions of the \: -t
majority of the people of this State are altogether
Opposed to any injustice towards any race or class
of men. It has always been claimed with reason
that this State win just in all ils dealings ; and
each c.tizen will be doing no more than his duty
in seeing that every negro, without exception, re?
ceives the same treatment before the law that is
meted out to the white man. To this the negro
is entitled, and to this he certainly has a just and

THE ADDRESS OF PR. BACBMAN.
My Christian Frimas :
Ou this very interesting and solemn occasion,
my Christian "frieuds, wo meet to rejoice together

and we como to-day to lay the foundation of a tem?

Three hundred and fifty years have passed away
since the great events occurred that proclaimed
the doctrines of Protestantism and of the Bible,
to be the truths ot God. Three and a hali centu?
ries have elapsod since the great Luther gave to
tho world thuse Theseses which have since formed
the creed of all Protestant nations, and which have
carried thc light of leligion and an open Bible
throughout a Large portion of tho earth.
lt is during my own ministerial labors in Charles?

spread of our sentiments in our Citv and State.
A small dilapidated building, which Las now dis?
appeared, contained all that could bc collected,
both of German and English, nf those who lind
embraced the faith ol' Luther. Ihe English lan?
guage had just been introduced into the services
of tho church, and no doubt thc German tras still re?
garded as the language most needed in the Luthe?
ran Church of America. liuie hus passe 1 .uvuy,
and generation after generation lias come and

youth, comes now with tottering steps, in the
days of his oki ago, to testify to you and to the
world his faith in those doctrines which he pro?
claimed in tbis city titty-three years ago--senti?
ments which luve encouraged and supported him
through his long and weary pilgrimage, and which

about to close.

God has signally blessed our beloved church in
this city from that day to this. In a short time
our original church building became too small to
contain our congregation, a new and a much larger
chinch was then erected. After some years it
again was found insufficient to contain the in?
creased congregation of German and English
worshippers. Auoilier church wasbuiltuigre.it
harmony, expressly to accommodate the spiritual
?ants of the Gentians. In time the English con?
gregation again became too large to be accommo?
dated iu the hist English Church, and a third cou
t,ri gstion was formed, which is now !" ? tlourishi og
Another English Luther.in Church is called for
on Ch rleciOQ N ck, Which il is hoped will soon bo
Imdt. Ai length it became evident that thc Ger?
man Church would nu louder serve the wants of
the increasing number of Germans, and we have
met to-day t.j lav thc Inundation of an edifice,
which, ?heu compl?tai, will be among tho largest
and most imposing of any in our city.
Who thal is interested in tho succc
doctrine of tho Reformation will not rej
us that God has so signally sanctioned an
those efforts, which hare bern made to
heeds ot divine truth into a soil so cong:
which has vieided snell abundant ErUli
honor and glory ot God.
Let thc aged mau who now addtosses
vise his Uer man friends, in erecting th

spirit that caused Luther and tho early R
to go forward with united zeal ami pen
iu carrying on this great work of 1'
Christianity. Do not allow difficulties to
age you. Let there be no strife between
ye are brethren. Remember that you aro
in a worK that will bo a blessing to your

The school numbers from three hundred and
fifty to tlneo hundred and seventy-five children.
Average attendance three hundred.
The boys were ranccd to the right of the stage
in the auditorum, and the girls to the left, the
Christmas tree in thc centre. Behind the tree on
tho stage were seated the larger girls of the school,
who took part in the exercises, reading, singing
and playing on the piano, whenever it came to
The hall was tastefully decorated with ilowcrs
and evergreens, but tho Christmas tree was the
chief object of attraction. It was a large pine
branch, as usual in sucli cases, profusely hung
With fruit and dainties, buming tapers, and all
sorts of glittering beauties. On its boue hs was
lead the great Gospel inscription, as rendered by
Luther: "Lube, ichverkundigecuchgros.se Freude,
denn euch is', heute der l?euan'J geboren." ["Be?
loved, I annoimco to you good tidings of great
joy, for to you this day is a Saviour born."]
Tho exercises wero very interesting, tho moro
so because they were iu a large mcasuro im?
promptu, the celebration having only been ar?
ranged a lew days ago. They consisted of sing?
ing, reading, declamation, and music on tho piano.
Thc first part of the programme was followed by
a re?ois of a f<w miuutes, during which time thc
children wero treated to refreshments, which they
enjoyed no less than the feast of reason which
preceded and followed.
As a curious teaturo we ma)' oJservo that of tho
two score of little performers who trod thc mimic
stago last uight wo did not s>3e a single one who
had a dark complexion or bla'?k hair. They wero
all, as Caesar had so long ago depicted thoir an
cesi >rs, of light hair and blue eyes.
Mi, Hoffman, tho teachers and the committee,
doser *e special credit for tho admirable manner
in which everything was arranged and executed;
and in the enjoyment we saw depicted on every
countenance, these gentlemen found an ample re?
ward. ' Their compatriots nevertheless owe Hiern a
large . ebt of gratitude for so genial and lathcr
londish a Christmas entertainment, w hich will bc
long i clambered, we feel assured, by both young
MINIATURE REPKES I>1\CATIOW OF THE NATIVITY.
The Sisters of Mercy, who have charge of th.
academy and orphan asylum in this city, have
been at some pains to furnish their pupils with a
Christmas surpriso that would bo both instructiro
and entertaining. They decided that * faithful
representation of tho Nativity, as described in tho
New Testament, would not only be appropriate to
the season, but would refresh and improve thc
mind. A portion of thc schoal-room was partition?
ed oil* and shaped by evergreens in tho form of a
grotto, in tho rear of which thc mountain of Judea
was seen.' These were admirably represented
and appeared true to naturo, thc rocky sides,
steep declivities and winding paths were plainly
visible, liphted by tho Star of Bethlehem, which
shown brightly from the evening sky. On
thc mountains were sacn thc shepherds
who were attracted by the lifcht of tho
star and wero making their way to tho cave, where
the iufant Jesus was born. They were followed by
their Hocks, who were gazing wondrously at the
unusual light. At thc foot of tho mountain thc
lowly manger was seen guarded by angels, who
pointed to tho Saviour of men. Scvoral shepherds
and tho Virgin mother wero in thc cave watching
the cradle. The skies, mountains and general
econery were painted in exact imitation of na?
ture, a id over all thc Gloria in Excclsis appeared
in golden letters, while at the entrance of thc cave
was tho motto, VENITE ADOREMOS. Tho angelic
hosts were seen in the skies hymning praises to
the new-born Saviour. Tho representation wai in
every respect beautifully executed, and well calcu?
lated to impress tho beholder with the sublimity
of tho occasion. It was a great treat to tho little
charges of tho Sisters, and?was visitod yesterday
by numbers of persons who were unanimous in
A BLAZE OF BUNTING.-To tho Spanish vessols
in port the credit has been avrarded, by general
consent, of having made the handsomest display
of bunting on Christmas day, that has boen seen
at this port in many years. Particularly noticea?
ble was the taste displayed on board tho brigs
"Phoenix," "Paco" and "Leonore," lying at the
foot of Pinckney-street. Tho national signal flags,
in great profusion, were strung from the main?
mast-head to the main-yard, forming a pyramid of
gorgeous colors, which attracted the attention of
passers-by even up on Meeting-street. We could
wish for a larger stock of bunting on our Ameri?
can ships, but economy sccm9 to limit them in
the matter of flags.
