THE MAOIO LANTEBN EXHIBITION at the Col?

interesting. Few persons are in the practice
of visiting places of amusement on Saturday

and gives it new interest. Mr. Charles Astor
Bristed brings to light two Alsatian novelists,
Erckmann and Chartrain, whose namo9 have
been scarcely heard of here, but whose pro?

enjoyed in their English disguise.

Saturday evening, "Washington's Birthday,"
at the Masonic Hall. It was strictly a private
meeting, only tho members of the association
being present. A collation, \ liich had been
furnished by Tully,, was discussed during the

MUNICIPAL REGULATIONS.-Our new Mayor
has officially announced that tho police aro to
be sustained and that he will be severe in
bis sentences in all cases of esisting their au?
thority. The large fines imposed on Saturday
were not so much for the offences committed
against city regulations, but because the par?
ties had resisted the police. Charleston is at
present more orderly and quiet than Northern
cities, and the small force of policemen on duty
are amply sufficient to preserve this blessed
?tate of things if their authority is sustained.
General Burns has signified his intention to
fjllow that ccurse, and offenders had better
consider their ways and act in accoidance to
law or they will assuredly come to grief.
The General warned inebriates that their
first offence under his administration was
treated with the light fine of five dollars, but
if they insisted in resting their heads upon a
lap of earth, or, in other words, making their
beds in the street, he would organize a chain
gang for their benefit. "A new broom sweeps
clean," and if the Mayor is as good as his word
i he offenders will speedily be swept into good
behavior or a prison.
A YACHT CLUB TO BE ORGANIZED.-Since tho
close of the war a lively interest has sprung up
in the sport of yachting which has become a
popular amusement, with many of our citizens.
During the past season a number of trials of
speed have been made, and Charleston can
already boast a respectable flotilla, though
there is little uniformity in the size or tonnage
ol' the vessels. It is now proposed to form a
regular ciub, to be known as the "Charleston
Yacht Club," whoso meetings will be held at
.the old Jockey Club Rooms, over Dayton's Res?
taurant. AFifcsitf it is proposed to have but a
wnall entrance fo^SUjd subscription. Here?
after these matters ca?Siv arranged to suit
tho viewB of the membersT^fChe first meeting
bas been called for Thursday ov*ltfingi *t Day?
ton's Restaurant. We have nowN?lie Kalo,
Rose, Maggie Mitchell, Eleanor and ot\er8> he
sides one or two pleasure yachts that tS* 9W
building. If the owners of these boats entdr
into the scheme, a fine club can be formed*.
The rules of the Now York Yacht Club, with ^
some slight modifications, could bo adopted, <
and the trials of speed be hereafter made on 1

The Radical " Slate " in loutit Carolina.
LATEST POLITICAL GOSSIP-W HA I WAS DONE BY
THE NOMINATING CAUCD8-THE COLOEED
BRETHREN DECLINE TO TAKE BACK BEATS
THEY INSIST ON THEIR FULL SHARE OF THE
SPOILS-HOW THE OFFICES ABE TO BE DISTRIBU?
TED-THE FUTURE SENATORS, . REPRESENTA?
TIVES AND JUDOES OF SOUTH CAROLINA-A NICE
The Radical nominating caucus which met on
Friday eveuing, did not achieve tho object for
which it was held. The evening was consumed
in discussing the propriety of making formal j
nominations at the present time, and whether
tho convention had the authority in its repre?
sentative capacity to do so. Without arriving
at any conclusion in the matter, the meeting
broke up in a squabble.
It is clearly the intention of the colored peo?
ple, however, to be represented on the floor of
Congress, in the judiciary department and
legislature-wherever, indeed, there is an
opportunity to enjoy honor or greenbacks.
That Cardoza, Cain, Beverly Nash, Elliot,
DeLarge, Langley, or others of that ilk will
remain in the back ground in the grand rush
for the spoils of office, is not in the least pro- '
bable. J. J. Wright (colored), from Beaufort,
has his ebon eye upon a judgeship, and he J
knows where tho votos aro coming from that
will elect him. W. G. Whipper has a fine show?
ing for a fat office, and perhaps like Wright,
will wear a gown. Nash and Wilder are both
candidates for the Sheriffalty of Bichland Dis?
trict, or Clerk of the Court. Indeed, there is
not an office in the gift of the voters for which
these colored candidates will not enter the
An attemp. will be made, it is said, to im?
pose upon the credulity of colored men, by de?
claring that any candidate who runs on a ticket
not nominated or endorsed by the convention,
no matter bow good a Radical he may be, will
bo read out of bis party. If this expedient
should succeed, it will give the control of the
State to those who are "in the ring," and
crowd out others whoso claims politically aro
quite as strong and legitimate as the regular
nominees. The leaders of the convention are
evidently nervous about attempting the experi?
ment of electing a black man to Congress over
awhile man. Speaking of Congressional offices,
it is believed that if six members are elected
four from the several districts and two at large
-they will be admitted by Congress.
The prominent names for United States
Senators, have already appeared in THE NEWS,
to wit :
J. M. Rutland, B. F. Whittemore, and Dr. A.
G. Mackey. Mr. Whittemore may, however, ac
copt a nommation for the First Congressional
District, and retire in favor of Mr. Rutland,
which will give the latter a fair field and a free
Mr. F. J. Moses, Jr., of Sumter, is also a
strong man among the Republicans of the up?
country, and the contest will he between him
and Mr. Whittemore. As both are good talkers,
the wire pulling and wool gathering in the 1st
District will be terrific.
The Second Congressonal District is an ob?
ject of much affectionate contemplation among
Ibo candidates-C. C. Bowen, J. P. M. Epping,
D. H. Chamberlain, and Gilbert Pillsbury.
These people and their allies at work make a
very lively kettle of fish. Pillsbury is eaid to
be too slow and phlegmatic for an actiro can?
vass, and C. C. Bowen cannot take the test
lath. Therefore, unless this disability is re
noved, (he race will lin between Epping and
Chamberlain. It is, however, contemplated to
nake tho latter the Attorney-General of the
Jtate, if ho will accept tho office, which is not
irobablo while thero is a ghostly chance of be
ng elected to Congress. ,
lu the Third Congressional District B. Odell |
)uucan, of Newberry, is the only name we have <
leard announced. If nominated he will doubt- ,
ess be elected without much opposition.
In the Fourth Congressional District there ,
s R. host of aspirants, but James H. Goss, of
Jnion, heads the hst. Ho has moro solidity
>f character about him than any of the others
lamed, and more of thia world's gooda to
nain tain tho position of representative.
The amount of button-holeing, wire-pulling,
og-roUing, dinner-eating, and whiskey-drink
ng resorted to as means to secure the ends in
,-iew is perfectly wonderful, and these tilings
teem to como as naturally to the political
ledgliugs as to the full-picked gander. Bun?
ion! be stoc'.v is evidently up, and speculators
ire wild with excitement.
THE MAILS ALL XUGHT AGAIN.-For some time
OJ st, owing wo believe, to the closing of naviga?
ron on the Potomac, between Washington and
bequia Creek, the Northern mails havo been
.egularly one day behind hand in reaching
Charleston. The recent mild weather we pre?
sume has reopened the route, for on Satur
lay we received a heavy double mail, including
;he latest papers due according to the schedule.
FATHER RYAN AS AN EDITOR.-We see by
mr Augusta (Ga. ) exchanges that a new paper,
o be called The Banner of the South, io bo de?
voted to religion, literature and art, is to be
oublished weekly, in that city, commencing on
ho first of March, to bo edited by the Rev. A
T. Ryan, tho distinguished Southern poet.
Terms three dollars per annum. We believe
he announcement will be welcomed through?
out tho South, for if one writer has endeared
limself moro than another to oui- stricken peo
ole, it is Fat' Ryan. Tho new enterprise
las our cordial good wishes for its success.
WASHINGTON'S BIRTHDAY.-This anniversary
vas celebrated in a very quiet manner on Sat?
urday. Flags were raised on the public build
ngs, and at noon the old Revolutionary salute
of thirteen guns was fired by the battery on
ho Citadel Green and at the forts in the bar?
oon At the government offices business was
luspended and the occasion observed as a holi
lay, but the stores and banks remained open
LS usual. In the evening the Washington
jight Infantry Charitable Association, tho
Y ashing ton Fire Engine Company and the
Jouth Carolina Friendly Society mot and cele?
brated . their anniversaries. The Cincinnati
md other societies also met in the evening,
mt there were no suppers given. The tight
iess of tho times precluded any demonstra
ions of this description, and the different or?
ganizations wisely determined to wait until
letter days should dawn, or the flush times of
ho past return, before they indulged in any
ARREST OF THIEVES.-Charles Wood, a col?
ored boy, about fourteen years of age, was ar
.estod by the detectives for stealing twenty
sight dollars from James (?adsden, colored,
So. 25 Spring-street. Gadsden had taken the
ooy from thc Colored Orphan Asylum, but his
:arly training muBt have boen defective, as his
irst movo was to rob his benefactor.
William Fowler, alias Fuller, colored, was ar?
rested for pioking the pocket of Robin Lumb
jate, also colored, of thirty-eight dollars. In
ooth cases the parties were turned over to a
?ugistrate by the detectives.
At the guardhouse Thomas Edwards, color?
id, was arrested for being drunk andotealing a
oair of shoes from Messrs. O'Neill Sr, Sons in
Samuel Simons, colored, had a row boat
vhich ho had stolen from James Clarke, color
id, at Mount Pleasant, and was ottering for
3ale. Both parties will havo a hearing before
oia Honor the Mayor this morning.
THE UNITED STATES MARSHAL FOR THE DIS?
TRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA.-In a former issue
wc published the fiict that Dr. Thomas Sim, a
Scotchman and ex-United States Surgeoi, had
been nominated by tho President to superscdo
Mr. J. P. M. Epping, the present United States
Marshal in this State. Several days have
elapecd, tho Senate hnB not acted upon the
nomination, and meanwhile, wc have obtained
copies, of certain interesting documents which
sufficiently show one of the causes that have
beeD ?it work to effect the proposed change, to?
gether with the counter-efforts by the friends
of Mr. Epping to keep him in his present posi?
Tho first paper which wo publish is a depo?
sition by Mr. Epping, showing by what author?
ity he received and applied the sum of four
hundred dollars obtained from certain parties,
and ii) as follows:
STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA, /
District and City of Charleston, j
Peisonally appeared J. P. IL Epping, United
States Marshal for South Carolina District, who
being duly sworn makes oath and says, that
at tho United States District Court at Green?
ville, S. C., for August term, 1867, Frank Ar?
nim, G. R. Crump and W. B. Davidson woro
tried and convicted ol' violation of tho United
states Internal Revenue laws, and were sen?
tenced by bis Honor Judge Bryan, presiding,
to pay flues and costs araountin ' to $12.400, or
be imprisoned twelve months each. The jury
hading recommended tho prisoners to mercy
after tho sentence, the defendants, through
their counsel, Governor Perry, General Gory
and General Esley, drew up a petition for ?
pardon, which was signed by the Judge and
the jury. The District Attorney, at thc re?
quest of tho defendants' counsel,"then stated
in open court that although ho had no direct
power in the matter, ho would recommend tho
Marshal to give the parties a littlo time to ob?
tain the money, and that lie wouM not press
him (the Marshal) until January, 1868, to exe?
cute the sentence, if tho parties would give
good and sufficient security for (heir forthcom?
ing at that time, or the payment of the finos
and coats. This being assented to by his
Honor Judge Bryan, the parties were tempora?
rily released by mc, upon making a deposit of
$400 to meet extraordinary anti eventual ex?
penses, such as the expenses of defendants'
witnesses, their possible rearrest, or counsel
fees, and upon having given notes, with good
endorsers, for the fines and costs.
When the time of payment carno, the parlies
produced a full and unconditional pardon from
the President, although a partial pardon had
only been recommended by the Judge and
A rulo has subsequently been sued out
against me and tho defendants by the District
Attorney, for the informer's share, holding
that tho President's pardon cannot, under thc
circumstances, relieve them from the samo,
and I have employed the Hon. C. H. Sirnonton
in my behalt, and the Hon. W. D. Portor
has appeared for tho d?fendants.

The statement of the Marshal, relativo to
what was said by mc in court at the time of
the passing of the sentence in tho caso above

Ii will bo inferred from tuc abovo that an
jffort was mado by outside parlies to show
that Mr. Epping had improperly received the

SIR: I havo learnod that efforts mo being
made to remove J. P. M. Epping hom tho posi?
tion of United States Marshal for !iouth*Caro
I beg to say that Mr. E. bas discharged his
duties with groat promptness and fidelity since
h: < appointment. So far as I know, or havo
heard, ho has given satisfaction to tho court,
and to the great majority of the members of tho
bar in this State in tho performance of the du?
ties of this office, and his removal, in viow of
these facts, would be unjust to him as a public
officer. I have tho honor to be,

Bear ?Hr: lt has como to my knowledge that
there is a movement on foot to have Mr. J. P.
M. Epping removed from his office as Marshal
of this district. From my sense of tho value
of this officer to tho country, I conld not bo
passivo without dereliction of duty. For I
should think it very difficult to procure a sub?
stitute, who would* equal him in zeal, know?
ledge, efficiency and devotion to the varied du?
ties of his office. I regard .Mr. Epping as a
man of remarkable energy. I know him to be
perfectly faithful. The machine he has to man?
age is now a very complicated one, requiring
indefatigable industry, vigilance, a cioar head,
experience, largo knowledge of tho processes
of the law and book-keeping; without tne.se ole
meuts of character und acquisition, his branch
of the service would fad into disorder and con?
fusion. I will pay, in tho general, looking sim?
ply to the public service, and tho intelligent,
faithful, thorough administration of thc duties
of his office, that I tako great comfort in hav?
ing an officer upon whom I can so porfecUy
rely as chiefly responsible for tho faithful and
efficient administiation of the justice ot' tho
country in this Stale. I feel it to be my duly
to make this declaration.
I have the honor to remain, dear sir,

COURT OF GENERAL SESSIONS ANB COMMON
PLEAS, HON. F. J. MOSES PHESIDINO.-The
?ury returned a verdict of Ave hundred dollars
lainages for the plaintiff in the caso of Bernard
Loddy cs. the City Railway Company. Leddy's
;loirn was for five thousand dollars. The facts
jf tho case aro briefly as follows: Conductor
Cohen's car was cominer up Meeting-street,
ind when near the old thcatro the horses came
n contact with Dr. Jervey's buggy, which was
;rossing the track. Tho car horses were forced
jackwards so as to detach the swingle treo
rom tts hook. This alarmed them and they
lashed off, still koeping tho track, and, when
lear tho Pavilion Hotel, struck tho arm of tho
ivindlase over thc drain man-hole, which in
Jtcted the injuries complained of by tho plain?
tiff. The old saying that "corporations have
io souls" doubtless had its full woight in gov?
erning the action of tho jury. Tho company,
?vc learn, will not appeal, but will abide by the
Saturday hoing the last day of the term, the
imo was occupied in motions and matters of

FOUND DEAD.-A colored woman named Flora
Campbell, but botter known perhaps as Flora
Rose, was found dead yesterday, in the house
No. 35 Beaufain-8trect. Tbe Coroner was noti?
fied, and an inquest will be held this morning.
PERSONAL.-Count Guy de Borlamont and
Messrs. Morris Aubent and Georgina Nagel
mackers, tourists from Belgium, are now on a
visit to this city, to examine the points of his?
torical interest. They are staying at the
Mills House. _
GENERAL D. E. SICKLES.-It is currently re?
ported, on the authority of letters received in
Charleston, that General Sickles is making
strenuous efforts to induce Congress to replace
him in his old position as commandant of this
military district. He is now stumping the
State of New Hampshire in behalf ot the Re?
publicans, and making "fair weather" with the
people, and at any moment it may be expected
that, having been a "martyr" to tho policy of
President Johnson, lie will be sent back, not
only as a justification to himself, but as a re?
buke to the Chief Magistrate.
P. S.-Since writing tho abovo wo learn that
Gen. S. has retired from the New Hampshire
canvass on account of a laok of promptness on
the part of thc Ropublican State Committee in
crossing his palm with tho "sinews of war."
THE HIDDEN HAND.-Tho tbeatro, on Satur?
day evening, was filled with a goodly audience,
drawn thither by the announcement that one
of Mrs. South worth's famous New York Ledgfr
stones, boiled down for dramatic representa?
tion, would be performed for tho five hundred
and-oneth time, with Mr. and Mrs. Watkins as
the especial stars of the night.
lt is superfluous to say that the play was a
success. Whatever these artists have under?
taken, during their brief stay in Charleston,
has afforded pleasure to the attendant public,
aid, although contending with the drawbacks
incident to a small sta^c and hastily impro?
vised theatrical machinery, their ability and
versatility have won tor them whole brigades
of friends, and an admiring row of reporters
for a skirmish line.
The "Hidden Hand" is one of your Bowory
"Ihoatre ' bi, hi," sort of plays, which, at one
moment, makes the exstatic tears crop n Mike
the perspiration on au ice-pitcher, and the next
starts a cacchination that runs through the
whole gamut of sound, from the incipient
"to-he-he" to the full-born, sonorous "ha-lia
ha." Tho plot of the drama is thia: Capitola
(Mrs. Watkins) is an ovcry-day New York
newsboy-one of those little gamins of the big
city, who are ragged as a paper mill, and so
sharp that they will skin a customer in threo
minutes, and so nicely, too, that he will never
miss his hide until ho comes to change his
flannels. "Old Hurricano" is the nick-name of
"Warfield" (Mr. Clifford), an old-time Virginia
planter, who, accompanied by his servant
"Wool" (Mr. Watkins), is in search of a long
lost little girl, who is an heiress. "Wool" ia
like his ma?tor, a type of "ole Virginny," and,
it being his first trip to tho Metropolis, be gets
as proud as a mulatto in a colored congrega?
tion. All Borta of difficulties afflict him, and
ha finally brings up in the calaboose.
Capitola is riso aricsted on) suspicion of
stealing tho planter's trunk, and likewise gets
into the Recorder's Cou. t. Thero old Hurri?
cane hoars the boy tell his story-how he is not
a boy but a girl, born in Virginia, brought to
New York by her old "uiauma," who returns to
Virgiuia to find some trace of tho family. Tho
old mautna dies, but, before shuffling off the
coil, haB an interview with old Hurricano w~ich
puts him on tho Irack. Tho story is told with
a pathos that star.s a copious aprinklo of brine
in tho audience, and tho planter takes Capitola
to his bosom. They hug industriously and the
curtain goes down lorcvor on tho "hero of Rag
Capitola is carried to Warfield's home; ap
poars in tho next scene as his ward, and looks
liko tho emanation of a moon-lit cloud. She
has tho stubborncss of a young mule, and old
Hurricane gets into a regular galo with her
every fil'teeu minutes; blows likj a porpoise,
roars, fumes, damrfgea tho furniture, and al?
most "busts his biler" with wrath, i'he house
screams with laughter, and fat men get tho
stomach ache trying to hold in.
Curious episodes of old Virginia life follow.
Lonoir, tho uncle of Capitola and murderer of
her father, finds out her whereabouts and
hires Black Donald, an outlaw, to abduct and
murder his neice. Black Donald outers her
chamber at midnight; but woman's wit foils the
vilh;in, aud when he attempts to eoize her, she
touches a spring on tho floor and he goes
srr.cwhcro down bolow. So does the curtain.
_>ouald turns up in prison, and tho day before
his execution Capitola helps him out. Then
al e takos rofuge in an iusane asylum during a
rain storm, and there finds her mother confin?
ed as a lunatic ; aids her mother to escape;
and just at the critical time when something
awful is to be done, when the audience holds
their breath in expectation of a frightful de?
nouement, in rush old Hurricane, Wool el id
omne genus, rescue the heroine and knock the
catastrophe in tho head. Lenoir shoots him?
self, and his imaginary brains lie in horrible
confusion all over tho carpet in the next room.
Capitola gels engaged to bo married to aman
after her own heart; old Hurricane goes off in
ecatacioa, and Wool behaves kimsolf like overy
other oh-bo-joyful niggor should under tho cir?
cumstances. So ends the play.
We make especial note of this Bingle per?
formance becauso it is a fair typo of the
rational amusement which tho Templetons aro
striving just now to givo to our people, and
for which they deserve to bo supported. They
have aa fcood, ?f not a better stock company
than can bo found in thc majority of theatres
out of thc largo cities, and aro untiring in their
efforts to please. Thue far we arc glad to say
that the engagement of Mr. and Mrs. Watkins
baa proven profitable and attractive, and their
audience have gone away moro than satisfied
that iu Charleston "?JIUO things can be done
as well as others."
