THE OUTRAGE ON THE SOUTH CAROLINA RAIL?
ROAD.-John Montgomery, the ringleader of the
gang of negroes who removed a rail which threw
from the track a train on the South Carolina Rail?
road in October last, has been tried by military
commission, and sentenced to fifteen years' im?

mitigated by General Canby to three years' im?
prisonment, with hard labor.
SUXDAT SCHOOL SERMON.-The Rev. John T.
Wightman, pastor of Bethel Church, preached a
sermon before the Sunday School children yestei
day morning. His discourse was on the Nativity,
and be counselled his young hearers to commence
the New Year with a firm resolve to walk in the paths
of righteousness. The church was well attended,
and tbe scholars listened to the advice of their
pastor with earnest attention. Tho school numbers
one hundred and forty pupils and thirty teachers.
ABOUT THE CONTENTION.-After all, it seems, wc
are to have a State Convention, and General Canby
directs, in an order which we publish this morn?
ing, that Charleston be the place, and January
14th the time, for its assembling. Some curiosity
is expressed as to what hall will be selected as tho
arena for the weighty deliberations of this anoma?
lous body; but it is understood that tho use of the
building formerly known as the Charleston Club
House will be tendered, for a consideration, by its
CLERICAL INSTALLATION.-The Rev. Mr. Mack,
who was recently elected co-pastor of the Glebe
street Presbyterian Church, was installed yester?
day morning, the installation sermon being deli?
vered by the Rev. W. S. Adams, of Circular
Church. The Rev. J. L. Girardeau, formerly r-ole
pastor cf this church, felt constrained to devote a
portion of his time to his oldco'ored congregation
at Zion Presbyterian Church, and, on stating his
wishea to tho congregation of the Glebe-street
Church, they decided to engage the services of
the Rev. Mr. Mack as .. j-pastor. Mr. Mack was
formerly connected with a church at Sumter, and
was a member of tho Harmony Presbytery.
ARREST OF BURGLARS.-On the night of the 26tb,
the house of Cyrus Smith, colored, in Nassau
street, was entered and robbed of $73 in silver, a
silver watoh and clothing. Cyrus was troubled at
the loss of his household gear, and unbosomed
himself to the detectives. Lieutenant Hendricks
gave the points to his officers who soon arrested
Henry Dozier, Eliza Dempsey and Laura Ann Mus
tipher, all colored, who confessed having broken
into the house. The clothing was recovered and
the thieves sent to jail.
Sarah Green, whose arrest as a house litter was
mentioned some days since, proves to bc a pro?
fessional character, and several of the victimized
have recovered sundry articles by means of her
IMPROVEMENTS ON 1HE CITADEL GREEN.- The
Boylston house is gradually assuming an appear?
ance that will accord with tlio other buildings on
the green. Tho workmen are now engaged in
giving it the same colo r as the Barrett house on
the opposite corner, and as the two buildings aro
somewhat similar the fine appearance of the Cita?
del and grounds will be preserved. A largo space
near the first building will be enclosed by a fence,
and the laundresses will be provided with ample
space for their duties. When the various improve?
ments now in progress are completed, the Citadel
will present a far more sightly appearance than it
has at any previous time. The appropriation mada
for this puTDOse has been well expended, and the
military authorities have rendered their barracks
superior to any in the Southern States.
THE SPARRING MATCH.-The advertised pugilis?
tic encounter between Darby Kelly aud Wm T.
White of Boston, took place Saturday eveaing. A
number of the fancy were present, ari there were
?parring matches between several o? the mas: era
of the noble art of self-defence. A ring had been
made in the centre of thc hall, and the flour,
which was previously waxed, was rosined to pre?
vent any of the champions from slipping. Tho
spectators were provided with sea:s which afford?
ed them a good view of the sport. The entertain?
ment was vaned by singing from some amateurs
who were present, and the evening passed pleas?
antly to ali concerned. Pugilistic sports aro rare
in this comm-.iuity, and that on Saturday night
did not "draw" sufficiently to warrant a repetition.
THE BAZAAR, which has been for the past two
weeks the centre of attraction, was closed Satur?
day night. The holders of the lucky numbers re?
ceived their vrizes, while those w'io drew blanks
wero comfor.od by the reflection that their moncy
was given '' i a good cause. The ladies who have
conducted this Fan- have labe diligently to
make this an attractive exhibition, and their efforts
have been crowned with success sarly $17U0 hav?
ing been realized. This is exclusive of any sub?
scriptions that have been made to the Hom e by
the friends of that institution. Few charities ap?
peal moro feelingly to the sympathies of our peo?
ple than the Home, and though thc money realiz?
ed by the Bazaar will enablo thi ladies parti illy to
carry out their benevolent plans, yet much re?
mains to be done, and contributions will bi- warm?
ly welcomed. Wc understand that a project is on
foot to give a series of elegant tableaux at tho
Home. Therein scarcely a doubt thit such au
exhibition, m such a cause, would be liberally sus?
A MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR-ALLEGED MURDER ON
SHIPBOARD. -Inloimation was lodged with Lieu?
tenant Hendericks on Saturday, that led to the ar?
rest of the captain and mate of the bark Alexander
McNeil, by the United States Marshul, but they
.were subsequently released to appear at tbs Uni
States Court this morning. The captain and mate
were charged with having caused tao deatn of a
seaman by brutal treatment while the vessel was
in the Delaware River, subsequently throwing th?
body overboard, instead of taUing it to the sLoro
for burial. The complaint was made by one Me
Avoy, a keeper of a sailor's boarding bous-, who
said that the men weie aloft reefing the topsai e,
and the sailor not coming up briskly, was knocked
down and beat until ho died of his injuries.
Both the captain and mato deny beating thc
man, and say that tho statement of the sailors is
not reliable, as they werd all aloft at the time and
could not see distinctly what transpired on deck.
The case will be hoard before the United States
pornmissioner this morning.

THE COASTWISE TRADE.- The New York Herald
of Friday, in the courso of some general remarks
upou the shipping interests of that place says :
Tho Southern trade is senerally dull. Some
little is doing with Washington, but the Charles?
ton, Savannah aud New Orleans lines are not doing
much ; indeed it is suspected that none of them
are paying, or if so not much beyond that. Great
competition exists in this coasting trade, the
steamers sold by the government immediately
upon tho closo of" the war having beei." purchased
by various companies, and put on tho peveral lines
running South in anticipation of a speedy settle?
ment ot the political issues which had distracted
the country and u consequent great demand for
Northern products and manufactures. LT this
thoy were disappointed, and now many of theso
..easels lie rotting in dock without employment.
Tho West India trade, although somewhat livelier,
is not very promising, and nothing like what it has
been. At this season oi the year cargoes of sugar
are being shipped here, but the importations
there are greater from tho United Kingdom than
from the States, such articles as thevreq lire being
obtained cheaper from there, notwithstanding the
g. eater distan .o they have to be brought, in con?
sequence of tne reduced cost of their manufacture
in ibo first placo; secondly, the greater cheapness
of fitting out vessels ; and, thirdly, the lower rate
of seamen's wages. A Slight demand exists for
\es3ols for Cuba, but it is not equal to last vear.
They w. re than chartering at from sixty to sixty
live "ce:its, while this voir not more than from fifty
lo fifty-five cents is being paid. The failure, re?
cently, of a large sugar house in this city has in?
duced great caution in purchasing cargoes. Tho
trade with Rio Janeiro is also very slack, but little
being shipped there. Freights ure about $1 per
bam I; but very little offers, scarcely any flour
being shipped. The best trade being djue with
these ports is in agricultural implements, which
are in moderately lively demand at present. Lum
ber, kerosine oil, lard, rosin and turpentine are
also staple articles of this trade.
MANUFACTURES.-The New Orleans Picayune in?
dorses the following plan for the construction of
small manufacturing establishments in the South,
the project being suggested by a Mississippi pa?
per. With tho present unsatisfactory condition of
the cotton market, and th9 general depression of
trade ai d industry, tho Southern people may fiud
in this scheue a sensible move to profitable em?
ploy, a considerable amount of labor, and as the
establishments suggested are on a limited scale,
each district might soon have several of them at
work. Were tho South to grow but one million
bales of cotton, and spin the greater portion into
yarn or common goods before it left her borders,
devoting her additional labor to raising provisions
and manufacturing, it is our belief that her posi?
tion would soon bc much changed for the better:
The most sensible proposition we have seen for
a long time is that of the Lexington (Miss.) Adver?
tiser, to start a little factorv with a capital ol $3500.
It savs it is folly to wait until $50 OOO or $100,000
ca i be got-it may never bo gath red. It says :
"A factory (costing the insignificant amount we
have named) can cird all the wool in the county,
make Lowells aud domestics to supply three times
oui population, and with u gin attachoi could gin
all tue gleanings of tho great 6taple at a figure
that would immediately supersede horse-power.
We have in our community a geuthuiinof recog?
nized genius, of au ;w cat .vc turn of mind, well
posted in mechanics aud machinery, who, for a
mcderatc compensation, could be induced to take
charge of tne business of such a iactory and con?
duct it to the grandest results possible to be at?
When our Hazelhurst friends a year or'wo ago
wcro I ry ?Lg to start a factory and stopped short
because the Euin of $10O,C00 could not ba raised, wo
told them to have a dog power factory if they could
get no other. Iudecd every 5000 ucres ot cultiva?
ted hnd should have its own gin and cotton fac?
tory combined, and it would bo all tho better if tho
farine.o daughters shoul 1 do th? weaving at homo
on tho improved looms of Ibo day. Small Dlanta
ticas and small factories must go together.
THE BUSSING OF COLUHBIA.-A correspond?
ent of tho Louisvillo Courier furnishes, in
the following extract, soino official evidence
of the spirit which animated tho authorities
at Washington, as well as tho commander of tho
army, ut tho time of General Sherman's campaign
through Georgia and the Carolinas :
1 have lately been reading Sherman's report to
tho "Joint Committee cn thc conduct of tho war,"
and am struck with tho total absence of all dis?
patches in regard to Columbia, S. C. Up to the
13th of February, 18G5, his daily orders, &c, to his
subordinates are given verbatim, but when ho gets
to that date all are left out with the except! n of
two seimtng'.y unimportant ones, until he reaches
Wmnsboro, on the 21st of February. No meulion
- not a fine-not a word hardly-is "made ol Colum?
bia's being burnt. No mention of tho place for a
day or two before he takes it-nothing atterward.
Strange! But may bo it was best leit out. His
last order of any importance, before taking Colum?
bia, is, "in t.io field, tweuty-oue miles .from
Columbia, February 13th, 1865' -thon comes, thc
two seemingly unimportant ones of tho 16th, one
of which I will copy directly, and theo a clean
jump made to thc 21st at Winnsboro', S. C.,
beyond Columbia. Ou page 2S7 of this work
(' Conduct of the War-Supplement-Part I"),
will bo found theso words, concluding n dispatch
from Hahcck to Sherman, and dated at Washing?
ton, Dec mbor 18, 18G4, and addressed to lM ijor
General W. T. Sherman." written when Sherman's
plans were decided ; "Should you capture Charles?
ton, I hope that by some (his italics) ?ccident the
place may bo destroyed ; and ii a little salt be
sown upou its sue it may prevent thu growth of
future crops of nullification and secession*"
Now hear Sherman's reply (copied from pago
291), dated "in th ) fi'.-ld, Savauuah, December 24,
1864," which, takou in conjunction with this
unimportant order of tho 18th of February, 1865.
trill explain who burnt Columbia, and who "allowed
it, it he did not order it. Li?ten all ye who "hanker
arter crow :"
"I will bear in mind your hint as to Charleston,
and don't think salt will bo necessary. When I
move, the Fife n h Corp. ,thC3C and the following
italics arc mine) will be on tho right of the rieht
wing, and their position will briug them naturally
into Charleston first ; aul if you have watched the
history ol that corps, you w"ill have remarked that
they generally do their" work up pretty well. Tho
truth is, tho whole army is burning with an insati?
able desire to wreak vengeance upon South Cal ?
lina. I almost tremble at her fate, but feel bbc
deserves all that seems in store for her. 1 Lok
upot. Columbia as quuo as bad as Charleston.''
Now for the little dispatch of tho 16th of Febru?
ary, the night before Columbia was plundered,
pillaged and burned. It ia addressed to General
Howard (the Christian soldier (V) to whom an
insulted Georgia woman of his own name said,
upon hi; claiming relationship with ht r : "No kin !
I thank God 'the blood of all the Howards' is uot
in my veins") :
' Lear General: 1 see thc- bridge over Broad
burnii.g. It is very important that you effect a
crosfi; g to night. If necessary, get over thc
Salu a the bulk of the (look cut 'crow caters")
Fifteenth Corps, then take up enough pontoons
to finish one aero- s tho Broad."
The Fifteenth Corps wa < the first to enter the
city, .iud went by Sherman's order and burned the
city, either ey his order or his want of ordor.
