SOUTH CABOLTNA ALMANAC_From Walker's
Printing House we have an admirably arrang?
ed Almanac for 1868, with this title, intended
for gratuitous distribution ; also, a handsome
illuminated Calendar Card, which, in itself
affords the best proof that Charleston cannot
be surpassed in the line of fancy printing.
PORCINE.-Goats are permitted, but hogs are
forbidden. The porcine tribe are not allowed
to wallow in the mud of Charleston, or to
grant upon the sidewalks of the city. But
they do it I They offend against the majesty
of the law; and, as the civil authorities still
control the venerable hog and the squeaking
pig, the power of the ordinance should at once
be vindicated. Pay the police in pig, if they
wont take scrip and can't get greenbacks.
DROWNING OF MLLE. ALICE, OF ROBINSON'S
CntouH.- Many of our readers will remember
* "Mademoiselle Alice," the graceful and daring
equestrienne of Robinson's Cirons. She was
drowned last week while the cirons was on its
way from Mobile to New Orleans. She was the
wife of one of the actors named Wilson. The
company went to New Orleans on the steamer,
and on the way over Mrs. Wilson accidentally
dropped a valuable diamond cross overboard,
and in snatching for it she lost her balance,
fell overboard and was drowned.
EPIPHANY, OB TWBLFTS: DAT-This day,
called Twelfth Day, as being that in number
after Christmas, and Epiphany, from a Greek
word signifying appearance, is a festival of the
Church, in commemoration of the journey of
the three wise men of the East who were led
by a star to worship the new-born Saviour. The
primitive Christians celebrated the Feast of
the Nativity for twelve days, observing the first
and last days with great solemnity.
Twelfth Day, also called "Old Christmas,"
was at one time a festival inferior only to
Christmas; and in England several old customs
are still observed, such os Twelfth Call, the
King of the Bean, &c. The observance of the
day is now confined to the Catholics and Epis?
copalians. With the former the feast ie a holi?
day of obligation.
Tax ARREST OF A BOSTON ROGUE IN CHARLES?
TON.-The arrest, in this city, last week, of j
Robert Preston ali a s George Richmond, for rob- [
bing an insurance company near Boston, Massa?
chusetts, of $8000, has excited some comment,
and some ot the city papers have given publici?
ty to apochryphal accounts calculated to ex?
cite sympathy for the female by whom Pres?
ton waa accompanied. The following state?
ment, which we find in the Boston Pose of De?
cember 30, gives a correct statement of the
facts of the robbery-not "embezzlement," as
has been stated-and throwB some light upon
the antecedents of the precious pair who were
making a tour upon the proceeds of Preston's
rascality, when that worthy was identified and
caught. The Post says:
"A day or two since it was discovered that
the vault of the Dorchester Mutual Insurance
Company, at Neponset, had been robbed of
$8000, chiefly in United States securities, de?
posited therein by various persons for safe
keeping. Suspicion rests on a young man
named Robert Preston, employed as under
clerk in the office of the company. He has ab?
sconded . in company with a young woman
named Nellie, whom hu took from a house of J
ill-repute in this city, and whom he boarded
for a short time at a respectable house in Sum?
mer-street, passing her off as his wife. It was
thought that they went to New York, and are
now on their way to California. Preston is
twenty-seven years old, respectably connected
with residents at Milton Lower Mills, and sus?
tained a good reputation generally among busi?
ness men. The woman business seems to
have turned him from the path of honesty and
virtue. The following is a statement of the
treasure abstracted: Three thousand dollars,
the property of the town of Dorchester; four
thousand dollars, mostly in seven-thirties, be?
longing to Mr. E. A. Perkins, of Dorchester,
and which had been placed in the office for
safe keeping but a few days before; seven hun?
dred dollars belonging to a trust fund held by
Mr. Thomas F. Temple; four hundred dollars
in Government bonds; and two hundred dol?
lars of gold coupons, duo in January, belong?
ing to the Dorchester Insurance Company, and
sundry smaller mattera belonging to individ?
The above described parties arrived at the
MiH? House on Sunday, December 29th, regis?
tering os George Richmond and wife, of Cali?
fornia, and being suspected of being fugitives
from justice by one of the detectives in the
d?partaient of the Provost Marshal General,
they were reported to General Hinks, who,
after investigating the case, ordered them to
be arrested just as they were about to leave on
the boat for Savannah last Tuesday evening.
On the person of Preston was found about four
thousand dollars of the stolen United States
bonds, and he confessed his name shortly after
being arrested. The parties were committed
to jail on Saturday evening, to await the arri?
val of a requisition from Massachusetts, a State
constable from Massachusetts having reported
to General Hinks on Saturday afternoon, to
convey the fugitives to Boston,

the sacramental season, bis discourse was
based upon that ordinance. The Bishop,
assisted by the Pastor, administered the
sacrament to the members of tho church.
At the Circu? ir Church an interesting ser?
mon was delivered by the pastor, from the
fifteenth verse of the thirty-third chapter of
Exodus: "If thy preseaco go not with me, carry
us not up banco." Mr. Adams alluded to the
many good promises and resolves that were
made with the opening of a new year, and earn?
estly advised his hearers to consecrate them?
selves to God, or their resolutions would be of
no avail. The present year promised to be
one of peculiar trials, and many who now
looked forward to prosperity and happiness
might have their hopes blighted; the Angel of
Death might remove them, and their seats be
vacant before another year. He urged them
to consider the jreat subject of religion while
there was yet time.

A PASSENGER COACH FIRED INTO ON THE SOUTH
CAROLINA RAILROAD NEAR LEWISVILLE-THE
SnSCBEANTS NOT TEX ARRESTED.
Hopkins', Fort Motte, and Lewie ville, have
lately gained an unenviable notoriety by the
riotous and insubordinate conduct of the freed?
men in their vicinity; and an outrage was com?
mitted on Saturday night which could only
have been intended to cause the death of some
inoffensive and innocent passengers on the
South Carolina Railroad.
Th a night express train left Columbia as
usual at S P. M., Saturday, and on the way
down there was a general conversation among
the passengers upon the subject of the appre?
hended disturbante at Fort Motte, reported in
the DAILY NEWS of Saturday. Some persons
evidently anticipated trouble, but the opinion
of the majority was that the military authori?
ties would promptly put down any movement
that threatened the security of the State or a
breach of the public peace.
At Lewis ville, thirty-eight miles from Colom?
bia, the train arrived at 6:45 P. M. Nothing
unusual took place, but as the train passed
the colore tl church, about a quarter of a mile
this side of LewiariUe, two shots were fired
into the passenger car at the rear end of the
train. Conductor Evans was in the car col?
lecting the fares of the passengers, and he in?
stantly ran out on the platform. Nothing was
to be seen, and, as he found that nobody was
hurt, the train was not stopped.
Upon examination it was seen that the win?
dows in the rear of the car were shattered, and
that the door was peppered with shot. There
were two bullet holes in the ceiling, and a
number of shot were picked up that had fallen
on the floor. It was evident that the persons
who fired had mn ont on the track as the train
passed and had delivered their fire while close
to it. To this fact was due the safety of the
passengers, as the shot all ranged upwards
and passed towards the roof. The weapon used
ia supposed to have been an ordinary smooth?
bore musket, and the charge buckshot and
WHO DID THE DEED?
The men who did the deed are not known,
and it is difficult to assign any satisfactory
cause for so unprovoked an attempt at mur?
der. Major W. H. H. Holton, agent of the
Freedmen's Bureau at Orangeburg, got on the
train at Lewisville, and one supposition is that
the shots were fired at him. Whether this be
so or not, Major Holton bad a narrow escape,
as one of the balls passed within an inch or
two of his ear. Another supposition was that
conductor Evans was the person attacked, as
he had on the previous trip put off at Lewis?
ville some negroes who had refused to pay
Ai is well known, the. freedmen in the up
country, as well as in the low, are nearly uni?
versally armed. They will spend money for !
brasB pistols and common muskets which
should be spent for bread; and scarcely a day
passoB that a bundle of muskets is aot taken
up by the freedmen on the night trains of the
South Carolina Railroad. Arms they are de?
termined to have, and it seems that they are
also determined to use them. Possession of
fire-arms makes the negroes intolerably inso?
lent, and produces such exhibitions aa those
which have lately taken place at Fort Motte
and Lewisville. I
Ey General Orders No 10, the carrying of
deadly weapons is strictly prohibited, and this
prohibition applies to white and black alike.
But this order is not enforced. The negroes
carry fire-arms at all times and upon all occa?
sions. They parade with them and make a
boast of them, while the white man, who de?
sires to obey the law, goes unarmed, and, if
attacked, is without any effectual means of
The military authorities may not know this,
but civilians throughout the State know it to
their cost. Only two nights ago the stable of
an old white woman at Summerville was fired
into, and her horse, her only means of support,
instantly killed. Cattle and hogs all over the
country are being shot down, and, to cover the
whole, comes such an iniamoua act as that
which we now chronicle.
Qeneral Conby and the military authorities
are here for the protection of life and property;
they are here to prevent the commission of
deeds of violence and blood. They have hither?
to shown vigilance and promptitude in an?
swering reasonable complaints, and we call
upon them now to have every provision of the
order prohibiting the carrying of deadly weap?
ons rigidly enforcod, BO that there maybe some
safety from sudden brawls and the shot of the
midnight assassin. It will not do to allow
shr t-guns to be carried. A shot-gun loaded
with buckshot is a moro deadly weapon than a
Springfield rifle. Every kind o? deadly weapon
must be taken away or kept at home, and the
beginning should be made in the District in
which Fort Motte and Lewisville unfortunately
lie. This the public peace and public safety de?
mands, and to the military authorities do we
now look for that safety and quiet which we are
not permitted to secure to ourselves.
SEND YOUB COTTON TO CHARLESTON_The
Greenville Euterprise gives the following sound
advioe to the up country planters : "We again
refer to the advantages of sending cotton to
Charleston, where the price is much better
than in Augusta. The Greenville and Colum?
bia Railroad, and the South Carolina, have
wisely and generously reduced their freights to
a moderate rate. Cotton is a full ceut on the
pound higher in Charleston, on the average,
over the Augusta prices. This will pay all expen?
ses of carriage, and is a[saving of the wear and
tear, exposure and loss of time in hauling it to
Augusta. We are not surprised to hear a good
report of the quantity of cotton now seeking
the railroad lines."
PROBABLE LOSS OF ANOTHER STEAMER.-The
Wilmington papers express apprehensions
of tho loss cf the steamtug John McB. David?
son, which sailed from that port for New York
on the 17th ult., and has not been heard of
?ince. The steamer was owned by Captain
Robert Stevenson, of Wilmington, and Mr. E.
H. Jones, of New York. The latter was one of
the unfortunate number on board, having as?
sumed charge of the steamer for the trip. Be?
sides Mr. Jones, there were on board of the
Davidson John H. Marshall, sailing captain,
George Price, of Smithville, engineer, two fire?
men (one white and one colored), a steward
aud a deck hand (both white). The steamer
must have encountered the heavy gale which
blew the night after she put to sea and day
following, during which she doubtless went
down with all on board.
A WATERFALL.-The Saturday night train
from Columbia was the scene of an amusing
accident that excited the risibilities of all who
witnessed the occurrence. A large cooler,
which was standing in one corner of the pas?
senger car, by some means became detached
from its position and the contents were un?
ceremoniously emptied upon a freedman, who
was calmly sleeping on a neighboring seat.
The rush of many waters Boon aroused the
sleeper, and caused bim to change his quar?
ters. The stewardess tnd others in that por?
tion of the car were compelled to leap upon
the seat for safety, and for a time a scene of
wild confusi?n prevailed, and it was not until
the water hal subsided and a dry floor ap?
peared, that the affrighted victims could be
induced to le*ye their perches.
CHUBCH DEDICATION, -roe dedication of the
new Catholic Church fer the colored people
will not take place to-day, as some of the
necessary arrangements could not be made in
time. In a few days, however, the interesting
ceremony will certainly be performed.

ACCIDENTAL SHOOTING.-On Saturday morn?
ing, George B. Toomer, a colored boy, about
sixteen years of age, together with two of his
companions, went up the road with the inten?
tion of gunning. On their return, at 12 M.,
they discovered' some birds in Potter's Field,
and Toomer endeavored to cross into the field
through the hedge, dragging his gun after
him. The cock was caught by a twig and the
load fired into his left side, killing him instant?
ly. The .muzzle was no near that his clothes
were set on fire, and beforejhis two compan?
ions, who were at a little distance, could reach
him, his jacket and shirt were partially burnt.
They succeeded in extinguishing the fire, and
reported the accident in the city. Coroner
Whiting was notified, and an inquest held,
the jury returning a verdict that the deceased
came to his death by the accidental discharge
of a gun in his own hands. George Toomer
waa the son of Robert Toomer, a painter, and
free person of color, well known in this city.
