LUSUB NATTJBAL-We learn from a friend in
Summerville that a cow in that vicinity gave
birth to two calves on New Year's Eve. At last
accounts both were well and promised to be?

ARRIVAL OF THE F.ILOON.-The steamer
Falcon, Captain E. C. Beed, arrived at her
wharf in Baltimore at an early hour yesterday
morning. The Falcon was caught in the late
gale, but succeeded in weathering it. Cap?
tain Beed reports the weather as terrific, and
the'sea-going qualities .of the Falcon were fully
- t T.ratBTA.-The banner "that bore a single
star," which waa carried in the colored proc?s- :
sion Wednesday by tho African Turners, and
whi?h puzzled the uninitiated, proves to have
y been the flag of the Liberian Republic. The
stripes and blue Union ire typical of the United
States, which fathered the new government,
while the gold star may have reference to the
place where "Arne's sonny fountains roll down
their golden, sand."
MURDEH AT SUMMEB VILLE.-It was reported
in the city yesterday that a murder had been
committed at Summerville on the 1st by a
negro man named George Duffie, formerly in
the 35th Regiment United States Colored
Duffie, it is said, struck a white man named
Grooms over the heal with a stick of wood,
which caused his death. It was alleged that
the parties had been quarrelling, and were in?
toxicated. Daffie sho ved a ont on his clothes,
and stated that it ma done by Grooms. No
inquest had been held.
"THAT LITTLE Bru .."-The first of January
baa been known from time immemorial as
the season for presen ;ing small accounts-un?
pleasant reminders of the past year's indebted?
ness. Of all tbe ills that flesh is heir to none
cause a greater depression of both mind and
body than the unwelcome visit of a dun, es?
pecially at a timo when money itt ??rn?, cot- j
ton down, and the azure demons constant
companions. In evei y portion of the city col?
lectors, armed with then* books and a long hst
of "little bills," were seen scudding through
tho streets, anxious to reach their destina?
tions while their victims were at home.
Though the finances of the country are at a
very low ebb, the people aro bravely meeting
the issue, and have reduced their expenses to
the minimum. As a natural consequence the
bills were quite small, and, in mest instances,
were promptly paid.
A NEW GAME OF E-JCHRE.-The English have
made an improvement in the mode of playing
this game, a description of >vhich will no doubt
prove, interesting to euchre-players. For ex?
ample, with every (?ck of playing cards sold
there is one blank card at the top of the deck,
used in this country frequently as a "marker."
' But the English make a better use of this
white-faced card. I'hey include it in tho suits,
making fifty-three to the deck instead of fifty- |
two, and to the euohre deck twenty-nine in?
stead of twenty-eight cards. This blank card j
at first was oalled "Louis Napoleon," but has
been subsequently corrupted into the less eu?
phonious title of "yorker." The "yerker,n
then, is the highest ranking card in the euchre j
deck, having capacity to "capture" either of j
the "bowers" or tho ace, so that a man may be
euchred even with the ace and two "bowers."
Whenever the "yorker" is turned up by the
dealer, that pei 3on has the privilege of "mak- |
ing the trump," and can make it to the most
advantageous .-ait in his hand. The game is
novel, and we understand affords much diver?
sion to the players.
THE VALUE OF A SORAP-BOOK--Every one
who takes a newspaper which he in the least
degree appreciates will often regret to see any
one number thrown aside for waste paper whioh
contains some interesting and important arti?
cles. A good way lo preserve these is by tbe
use of a scrap-boos. One who has never been
accustomed thus to preserve short articles, can
hardly estimate the pleasure it affords to sit
down and turn over the pleasant, familiar
pages. Here a choice piece of poetry meets
the eye, which you remember you were so glad
to see in the paper, but which you would long
since have lost had it not been for your scrap?
book. There is a witty anecdote-it doeB you
good to laugh over it yet, though for the twen?
tieth time. Next is a valuable recipe yon had
almost forgotten, and whioh you lound just in
time to save you much perplexity. There ia a
sweet little story, the memory of which has
cheered and encouraged you many a time,
when almost ready to despair under the pres?
sure of life's cares and trials. Indeed, you can
hardly take up a single paper without reperus
ing it. Just glance over tho shent before you,
and see how many valuable items it contains
that would be of service to you a hundred times
in Ufe. A choice thought is far more precious
than a bit of guttering gold. Hoard with care
the precious gems, and see at the end of the
year what A rich treasure you have accumu?

THE NEW PHOSPHATE BEDS NEAR CHABLES
TON-INTERESTING FACTS.-The discovery of
the bone earth or natural phosphates in South
Carolina, seems about to create quite a revolu?
tion in the manufacture of fertilizers, and the
Northern companies are already anxious to
eoonre consignments of the precious material.
Several shipments have been already made,
and applications for agencies and letters ask?
ing information are received daily. At present
the earth is shipped in its crude state, but the
company design soon to commence operations
and prepare a fertilizer that will be found supe?
rior to most of thoso now in use. During the
past year over $o00,000 worth of fertilizers were
sold in thiB city between January and May, and
it is estimated that this amount will be more
than doubled during the present season. Our
farmers hayo become convinced of the benefit
to be derived from a free use of manures, and
have expended more money in the purchase of
these supplies than at any former period.
They are now promised a fertilizer of
home manufacture, which will be supe?
rior to the imported article, and which
can be obtained at a far less price. A number
of orders have been received by the company,
who have a large force of hands employed, all
of whom are white, many of them being so re?
duced in circumstances ae to be compelled to
support themselves and families by a kind of
labor to whioh they are wholly unaccustomed.
A wharf is now being built at the landing on
the Ashley Biver, and vessels will then be able
to load direct from the mines.
The company, though but recently started,
has shown that it will have no mushroom
growth.. It has made preparations to supply
the phosphate in unlimited quantities, and tho
effect of the fresh trade thus created upon our
city's prosperity will not be long in making it?
THE ENTEBTAINMENT GIVEN TO THE ORPHANS
IN-CHABGE OF THE S1STZB8 07 MEBOT.-The
little charges of the Sisters of Mercy were yes?
terday made the recipients of a feast that was
doubly acceptable from the fact that it was
tendered them by the scholars of the acade?
my. The two rooms fronting on the piazza
had been thrown open for this purpose, and
two long tables m tho centre of either apart?
ment wore literally covered with good things.
Every delicacy that could be obtained was sup?
plied unsparingly, and tho appearance of the
tables would have reflected credit on expe?
rienced caterers. The feast was the voluntary
offering of the boarders and day scholars of
the academy, and- the supplies were obtained
by contributions made by them for this pur?
pose. A few minutes past 2 the tinkle of a
bell announced that the preparations were
completed, and.the orphan girls were mar?
shalled by the Sisters into the different rooms
and aBBigned seats at the tables, where they
were waited on by their young hosts. When
the first few moments of diffidence and reserve
had passed, and the good things placed before
them had began to disappear, the scene was
one worthy of a painter. The scholars wore
blue rosettes, and the President pro tem. was
distinguished by a tri-colored rosette. The
Catholic olergy and a number of invited guests
were present, and took great interest in the
proceedings. After the dejeuner, and while
the debris of tho entertainment were being re?
moved, the orphans sang several pieces, the
voices sounding as one, and showing that their
musical education had not been neglected.
A mysterious hint of tableux vivants given to
tho guests served to exoite their curiosity and
induced them to remain until the close of the
feast. They were then invited to the school
room, which had been prepared for the occa?
sion and furnished with a stage, drop curtain
and seats for tho an dione*. Altar n few mo?
ments of anxious expectancy, during which the
seats were rapidly filled, the bell sounded and
the curtain rose. The first scene was entitled
"a morning call in China," and was a represen?
tation of the morning visits paid by the Celes?
tials, and a dialogue held between a titled lady
and her guests. The conversation was in
French, and though unintelligible to most of
the audience, it was evident that the fair ac?
tresses were thoroughly au fait in the tongue
and were not speaking merely by rote. The
Empress received her visitors with great affa?
bility, and sustained the burden of the conver?
sation, evincing both an excellent memory and
a thorough knowledge of 1 rench. The other
parties in the dialogue sustained their different
roles admirably, and while personating Celes?
tials could be very easily mistaken for angels.
After the dialogue, a number of scriptural
tableaux were givon, each of which was admi?
rably rendered. The transformations were
effected rapidly, and tbe interludes were ren?
dered pleasant by the singing of the orphans.
The tableaux were performed in the following
1. Joseph being sold by his brethren.
2. Joseph interpreting Phoroah's dream.
3. Finding the oup in Benjamin's sack.
4. Joseph discovers himself to his brethren.
5. Joseph presents his lather to Pharoah.
6. David gi nug praise to God.
7. Angels crown David.
8. The Queen of the South visits Solomon.
9. She salutes Solomon and presents him
10. The Babylonish captivity.
11. Esther pleading for her people.
12. The triumph of Christianity under Con?
13. A Christmas Party.
The tableaux were entirely di fib re nt in their
stylo, and must have required close study, but
they were all performed with great exactness.
Some of the representations wore extremely
beautiful, and tho actors displayed groat taste
in their different poatures.
There were about fifty little orphan girls pre?
sent, and between seventy and eighty of the
scholars. The orphans arc at present domiciled
in a house on Spring-streot, near Gadsden's
Green, their former Asylum being untenable.

Carribean Sea. West Indies, latitude 16 degrees M

It has been used foi: many years in the West India
Islands in the cult i vallon or Sugar Cana and osreals
with great success; was introduced for the first tune
to the farmers and ph inters of the Unit rd statu in
the spring of 1866, and baa met wi h unprecedented
success, as the subjoined reporta and testimonial? rol?
The BODUNDA GUANO is not a mineral'phos?

render it soluble; ita great power as a fertiliser ls in
ita entire solubility, without the aid of add. lt ls
not a "manipulation" or Compound of . lah or Flesh

3 he regularity and uniformity of the fineness and
