PROMENADE ENTERTAINMENT.-The ladies of
the sewing society of the Church of the Holy
Communion gave a promenade and refresh?
ment entertainment last night at the hall over
the Adams' Express office. The room had
been tastefully decorated with evergreens, and
the different booths were ornamented with the
same material. Each table was under the con?
trol of a presiding divinity, who understood the
art of enticing the greenbacks from their hid?
ing places. In one corner of the room a par?
tition had been erected, behind which a pro?
fessor of the black art practiced his sleight of
hand. This was confined to the miraculous
dancing of a number of pasteboard dolls, who
went through all the motions usual in such
oases, performing the "-??ble shuffle and cut?
ting the pigeon wing. The most wonderful
feature in this performance is the facility with
which these puppets performed their manou?
vres. The entertainment will be continued
IMPROVEMENTS TN THE CHARLESTON HOTEL._
In the past few weeks a number of improve?
ments have been made in the Charleston Hotel
wbioh have materially added to the comfort of
tho guests. A cloak room bas been opened
near the office, and the guests need run no
risk of losing their outer garments. Tho old
wine room bas been transformed into a private
office for Major Horbach, and is connected with
both the dining room and main office. This
small office has been fitted up in an attractive
manner, and forms a pleasant retreat, whore
the Major can receive bis business friends.
Since the new regime has been inaugurated,
there has been a marked improvement not only
in the cuisine, but in every department of tho
hotel. At present the travel is extremely bght,
but as business improves the old friends of the
Charleston will return, and the house be as
crowded ae in the days of its greatest prosperi?
ty. The house is comfortable, the fare excel?
lent and beyond reproach, and the proprietor
and bis assistants courteous, vigilant and at?
tentive. What more can be desired by tired
and hungry man ?

SHERIFF HASTIE CITED TO APPEAR-HIS TESTI?
MONY AND THE ABGUMENT OP OPPOSING
COUNSEL-DE0I8I0N OP THE
An interesting question was argued yester?
day in Judge Moses' Court. It will be remem?
bered that John Jenkins (colored) had been
resentenced to death, and that his counsel,
Mr. T. G. Barker, objected to the execution of
the sentence upon the ground that W. 3.
Hastie was not the legal sheriff, and would be
liable to be indicted for manslaughter if lie
caused the prisoner to be hung. Mr. Hasiie
had been summoned to appear and was present
Mr. Barker said that the prisoner Jno. Jen?
kins, was now in the custody of W. 8. Hastie,
Esq., who was not the lawful Sheriff. The
question now was whether Jenkins should be
hung by W. S. Hastie or Jno. E. Carew his pre?
decessor, and the true and rightful sheriff. As
one of the counsel of Jenkins he did not con?
sider that he had exchanged his responsibility
unless he had brought this matter to the at?
tention of the court. It was his business to
see the seotonce lawfully executed, but the
court had instructed him that no notice would
be taken of the case unless brought up in le gal
proceedings, and Mr. Hastie was willing to
have this issue made. He did not beber? the
present incumbent to be legally competent to
fill the office; he was bound by his oath as an
officer of the court to make and sustain this
question. As to Mr. Hastie, justice demanded
that he should be relieved from bis present
painful embarrassment. For himself, he had no
apology to make for sustaining the constitu?
tion and laws of the State of South Carolina.
Mr. Barker then read the rule on Mr. Hastie.
Mr. W. S. Hastie, in reply, said that he had
never courted this issue, but waa prepared to
meet it. His appointment was by the mili ;ary,
and though many may sneer at this au thc ri ty,
it wes on that issue that he would either etand
or falk Mr. Hastie read his appointment from
the military, and his commission signed by Gov?
ernor Orr, and sealed with the broad seal cf the
State. He said that he did not mean to anter
into the defence of the parties who appointed
him, but there were one or two points vhich
he thought should be refuted. He bad been
charged with being an usurper, but ho bad
never solicited the appointment, and had had
no opportunity to decline. The first intimation
he had received was through the newspapers,
and he then gave no intimation of his accept?
ance. In the meantime, he was called upon by
a number of prominent citizens and solicited to
accept the office, as otherwise some one might
be appointed who would be far less acce ptable
to the people. These solicitations dodd ?d his
course, and be took the oath and execulod the
bond for fifty thousand dollars, which, with ap?
proved securities, was flied with the groper
officers. Bis commission had been issued by
the Governor, under the seal of the State. In
this citadel he bad entrenched himself, ind he
was willing to let those who could batte - down
its walls remove him from it.
Mr. Barker, in reply, said: Tour Honor
will believe me when I say that it is with no
feelings of pride, but with those of humilia?
tion, that I sit before a Judge and hear the in?
cumbent of the sheriffalty plant himself upon
the military as the source of his power. He is
right in supposing that the issue is not with
him; for it will extend to ages yet to come. It
is an issue which arose under the Constitution
of the United States, and that boasted Ameri?
can liberty which we poor Southerners are
charged with violating. Something is due me
when I say that I am not one of those who,
from motives of expediency, consent to wit?
ness tho terrible spectacle of a government de?
stroyed by a military power. Your Honor is
the exponent of constitutional liberty and the
government of the State of Bouth Carolina.
Mr. Hastie is the exponent of an antagonistic
government-a military despotism. It is im?
possible for your Honor to sanction this union,
and the court cannot pass judgment under
these military laws. As a citizen of the State
I am bound to support the laws, and I will
never participate m such an unholy uidon as is
now attempted to be forced upon us. It is
better to have pure military law, administered
by pure military appointees, than tho present
mixture, which is calculated to teach us to
forget all legal obligations, and to yield to tem?
porary expediency and military force.
No one can entertain a more soveieign con?
tempt than myself for any one who 'jndeavors
to stir np strife in the community. But if, as
officers of the law, we particip?t? in thia
civil-military union, and are not merely
passive, but become agents inpoieoning the
fountains of justice, bow can we measure our
responsibilities as citizens of the State and
officers of the law?
What is the legitimate theory by which Mr.
Hastie holds his office? Ia it that your Honor
exercises powers not granted by lav, and that
the prostitution of the seal, reoorc'ls, law and
justice is involved in this commit ision? By
what authority does James L. Orr assume to
be Governor? Is it not because be claims the
office, as having been elected by the people un?
der the constitution of 1865? He would other?
wise be no Governor, and would hive unlaw?
fully used the seal. As the Governor elected
by the people, he had a right to affix the seal
to the paper in question, but nowhere in law
can a governor appoint a sheriff. He can com?
mission him when elected by the people, but
if the man commissioned is not so elected, he
violates the law, and the constitution he has
sworn to support. It is some apology that the
paper in question has not been signed by tho
Governor in his pretended official authority,
but by virtue of orders received t..ora General
Sickles. These are the orders of his master;
but a master whom I am sworn not to regard,
and against whom my office requires me to
protect this State. The paper commissioning
Mr. Hastie is rank treason agaiist the laws
and State of South Carolina, and people will un?
derstand the motives of temporar} fear and ex?
pediency that led to its issue. Tb e people may
be degraded, but they cannot be deluded. For
a time the current may sweep away all land?
marks of liberty, but tho counter current will
come and show where liberty has been destroy?
ed. I am, said Mr. Barker, opposed to all
ms as ur es of exp?die acy, such as taking Mr.
Hastie in the place of some more objectionable
man. I am ono whom the peoplo will never
charge with having soiled his hands with ;v j
mockery of justice.
Mr. Barker reviewed the Bccon st ruction acts
of Congress, and argued that in tho preamble
they declared that South Carolina was not a
State. He could not, for the stike of expedi?
ency, admit either that Jno. Jenlrins had been
tried by a rightful authority, or that his Honor
had power to pass sentence upon him. If tho
authority of the Sheriff is recognized, that of
the Judgo must also be considered as coming
from an authority invalid in lat?.
The Judge reserved bis decision.
A BABS CONJUNCTION.-The conjunction of
Jupiter and Venus took placo yesterde.y at
3:56 P. M., as stated in the almanacs. Au the
sky was clear after sunse t, *,ke two planets

Tho phenomenon of the two planets having
the same right ascension or longitude is one of
rare occurrence, and it is hoped that the conven?
tion will ordain it shall take plaoe more fre?
quently when the constitution is reconstructed.

WILMINGTON AND MANCHESTER RAILROAD :
Tits HANDS OF A RECEIVER.-The W liming tc
Star makes the following statement in relatic
to a paragraph under the above head whit
appeared in THE NEWS of tho 27th inst. W
assure our contemporary that our in format ic
oame from a source that we believed to be i
every way trustworthy, and that we cheerful
publish a correction of the errors into whic
we appear to have fallen. It may be adde
that the remarks of the Star oro so clear an
definite that they need no word of comment :
In the first place the Wilmington and Mai
chester Railroad ls not in the hauds of a "rt
oeiver for the benefit of its creditors." Mr. ?
ld. Drano was appointod receiver under a dt
cree of court giving judgment in favor of onl
auf. creditor, whose claim amounted to abor
ten thousand dollar.-. Mr. Drane has nothin
v ha to ver to do with the operations of th
road, and when tho oarnings cancel the deb
?or which ho was appointed receiver, his offic
In the second placo we have authority t
deny that Mr. Drane, while President of th
company, ever procured $COO,ooo upon a cr?ai
of two years, the result of his negotiation
being principally to obtain $300,000 at an m
tero?t of seventeen per cent, per annum, th
principal being payable in monthly instalment
So tar as the change in the executive office;
is concerned, it is presumed that a corporatioi
has the right to make any such changes when
ever those who hold a majority of the Btocl
deem it to their interest to try such "feorfu
experiments." While we would not allude i
the "well-defined policy of two years* expe
rienoe" which was "thus overthrown." we mus
denounce the implied attack which is mad
upon the ability of tne present management
the injustice of which will be evident when w
state that under its regime not a Bingle dolla
of new debt has been contracted, the road beim
operated upon strictly catsh principles. It i
only the old debts which are now bearing s
heavily upon the oompany, and it i
to relieve this pressure that the presen
management is now straining every nerve
How well their efforts are seconded b;
such articles as the one quoted above
may be readily conceived. Nothing i
better calculated to ruin the creditors am
gratify the enemies of the company, for encl
statements unless corrected, will cause such
Kanio among the former that the company wi 1
e entirely unable to stand np under thei
pressure, and the road will pass into the hand
of ita bondholders, when both stockholder
and creditors will lose everything. It is fo
their interest, then, that such statement
should lie promptly contradicted, for thei
safety depends entirely upon tho success o
tho negotiations now pending for the relief o
We are sure th it none will moro deeply re
