The same house has begun the publication ol
the Waverly Novels, at twenty-five cents a

cheap Dickens. A sight of these volumes is
worth a call at Russell's.
RELIGIOUS EXERCISES.-The Young Men's
Christian Association have been fortunate
enough to ?6cure for to-morrow, tho services
of the Rev. Wm. S. Plummer, D. D. of Columbia.
Dr. Plummer is not only a distinguished and

BANKRUPTCY IN THE UP-COUNTRY.-Tho
Y'orkville En. ".: -er says: 'There have been
referred to W. L Clawson, Registrar in Bank
ruptcy, at this place, up to this date, one hun
dred petitions for voluntary bankruptcy. A
largo uumber of these are from York District,
and others from Union, Spartanburp, Laucas

Fairfield, Richland, Greenville, Abbeville, An

ences for involuntary bankruptcy have been
F?iflNa UP.-We learn that the newly enfran?
chised citizens, yclept freedmen, are walking
bravely up (o the "Cap'ns office" and paying
their capitation tax for tho year. It i ; a good
sign. We wish everybody's ambition would
run inlliat channel. There's money in it.
Last year the great unwashed wero in the vo?
cative. Now, from some patriotic motive
doubtless, they aro desirous of assuming all
the responsibilities of citizenship, and thc
Treasurer's books show a goodly array of
figures opposite the names of colored men.
Surely "it is an ill wind that blows nubody
good," and, as far as the treasury is concerned,
it can hold all the fish which co nes to its net.
If the colored people would pay their capitation
tax promptly, the advantage would redound as
much to themselves as to the community at
THE MEDICAL STUDENTS_Another Mcsaion
of this time-honored institution closes to-day,
and, inore maforum-thia close is called the
commencement-a paradoxical collocation of
terms. The close of tho session is coincident
with tbe commencement of tho professional
career of tho neophytes who arc this day to bo
dubbed with that distinguished bi-literal
suffix, viz: M. D. There aro about thirty can?
didates tbip year for medical honors-a goodly
uumber, considering the hard times and great
scarcity of money.
The exercises ut the College, as usual on
such occasions, will be public; and if any of
our readers feel any curiosity to witness tho
metamorphosis of tho medical student into a
doctor, and sec bis cheek niantlo with the
Mush of ingenuous sliamo at the thought of
his unworthiness to support tho weight of such

that tho exercises are to commence at eleven

DEATH OF HON. EDWARD J. AUTHUR.- WC
learn that the above named dibtinpuiehe J citi?
zen of the State died at bia residence iu Co?
lumbia on WednoBday last, and waa buried
yesterday. Mr. Arthur, during his lifetime,
filled many offices of honor and trust in tho
State, was distinguished at the bar a? one of
its ablest members, and was beloved by all who
appreciated his purity of character and gen?
ial Christian nature. I n all of his relations he
has been an eminently useful man, and the
society in which he lived may well mourn his
LEAP YEAR-THE EXTRA DAY.-February
bas always been an ill-used month. Kuma
doomed it to have twenty-nine days, except in
leap year, when it had thirty. Augustus chose
to add a 31st day to August that the month
named after him should not be wanting in
dignity. To effect this he took tho day from
Febrarary, which could least spare it, redu?
cing it to twenty-eight days, excopt ou leap
year, when cno is added, lliis arrangement
was generally adopted and endures to this
day. Tho ladies have, for the past eighteen
centuries, enjoyed special privileges during
leap year. In an ancient ?Saxon law, lt is en?
acted: "Albeit, as often as leape yoaro doth
occure, the woman holdeth prerogative over tire
menne in matter of courtaliipe, love and ma
triinonee; so that when tho lady proposeth, it
shall not be lawful lor menne to say her nae, but

CITY FINANCES-GREENBACKS VS. Cm SCRIP
-?..ooo NEWS FOR EVERYBODY.-It has been
ascertained, from undoubted authority, that
Mayor Burns has succeeded in negotiating a
loan for the city to a large amount. The money
has been deposited in the First National Bann,
and will bo used to pay off the floating debt of
thc city. Tho rumor of this transaction was
sufiieienl to materially appreciate the value of
city scrip, and it readily sold yesterday for
niuety-eight cents on tho dollar. Orders have
been received by the City Treasurer to pay out
nothing but greenbacks, and the applicant e for
t his favored currency are constantly increasing.
Monday being the fir.,;, of the month is the
great pay-day, and the information that green?
backs are forthcoming, will cause manya heart
to leap with joy. Policemen, street laborers
iud city employees who have been struggling
to make both ends meet with a depreciated
scrip, can now realize the full amount of their
dues. With? the coffers of tho city replenished,
Skinner's autograph will again become a fa?
Tho ordinance authorizing the issue of city
money limited the amount to $50,000. Of this
only $48,000 was signed and issued. Since that
time it has been gradually redeemed, until at
present only about $25,000 is in circulation. A
large portion ot this is held by tax-payers, and
it ia confidently expected that in a short time
city scrip will be a thing of the past. The
sudden appreciation both of city stock and
scrip shows that the community have not lost
confidence in their securities. The former
have risen from 28a31j, while the latter is al?
most at par.
It is expected that the tax-payers will now
promptly meet their obligations and enablo
tho City Treasurer to continue in well doing.
It has been arranged to pay tho present ira
mediato debt of tho city, and it will not bo
long before tho interest and the past indebt?
edness will also bo paid.
In tins connection it is proper to add that
tho coupons on the Fire Loan Bonds, which
were heretofore payable in New York, will now
bc paid at thc First National Bank of this city.
THE TRADE OF BALTIMORE WITH CHARLES?
TON.-Tho l.'altimoro Gazette, in replying to a
correspondent who contrasts the freight rates,
coastwise, of Baltimoro with those of Phila?
delphia, says: "It is because the steam facili?
ties of Philadelphia to thc South are inferior
to those of Baltimore, that tho freights there
are sometimes lower than they arc hore. Phila?
delphia is striving hard to recover a Southern
trado which she will never have again, if Bal?
timore is truo to her own interests. The ship?
ping ratea South are regulated here chiefly by
tho New lork rates, with which city Baltimoro
has to compete. Tho rates to Charleston,
which wc take aa tho chief Southern city, aro
the same as from New York. Tho rates from
Baltimore lo tho interior towns between
Charleston and Now Orleans aro in many cases
atxtcon to twenty per cont, less than those from
New York. Tho Baltimoro and Charleston
Steamship Company connocts with no ?ess
than sixteen different railroads, and takes
Creight cia Charleston for almost any part of |
the interior, South and Weat of that city. At
Baltimore it connects with lines leading to
Cincuiuati, Louisville, St. Louis and Philadel?
phia, to whioh latter city cotton is brought by
Lilia linc. Tho laat quotations in Charleston
rivo us aa tho rates by steam to New York: 1
jeni per pound on cotton, $2.50 per tierco. on
rice; to Philadelphia, I cont per pound on not?
ion, and to Baltimore $ cent per pound on oot
:on and $1.75 por ticrco on rice. The rutes
rom Ibo South to Baltimoro are lower tba.i to
Philadelphia or New York, and tho rates out
ire generally lower than from New York. Bal?
limore is already getting the control of Ibo
Southern bacon trade, having shipped within
ho past few days 800 hhds. by tho Charleston
inc, and its cotton trado is steadily growing.
Thc Falcon brought 741 balea a few days ago,
he largos! lot yet brought. Part of it went to

TOURISTS.- Those of our readers who scan

tho North and Weat, representing every variety
of political opinion and aociol prejudice, educa
Led and ignorant, shoddy, and real, refined and

tho grass that grows in our afreets, and sundry
other things which paaa for relics abroad, and
which are very much like trash hero. They

THE PALMETTO PIONEER CO-OPERATIVE ASSO?
CIATION.-We have frequently alluded to tho
necessity of forming co-operative associations,
ind have been pleased to sec that tho sugges?
tions of THE NEWS have been kindly recoived
iud acted upon. The Palmetto Pioneer Asso
?iation was formed some months since, princi?
pally among tho members of thc Palmetto Fire
Company. They went to work with a will, aud,
though starting under diaeouraging circum?
stances, have succeeded in making thca-aoeia
tion an active agent in the contemplated
scheme. . Ibo first few months were necessari?
ly spent in organizing their forces and prepar?
ing for tho work beforo them. These piepara
tions have been happily accompliahcd, and tho
i88ociation meet to-night for tho purpose of
ilecting a storekeeper and making arrange?
ments for opening their store at an carly day.
At a recent meeting Mr. Stephen Thomas
.vas elected President, and lo his activo mau?
tgement is due tho present prosperous condi
?ioii cf tho society. It now embraces about
mo hundred members, who pay weekly the Bum
if $1 each. The aliares are held at S2G0., each,
md aro limited by thc charter to five hundred.
iVhcn the store is opened dividends will be de
nared quarterly, but no payments will be mado,
he interest being funded until the principal ia
mid. When this event is accomplished thc
lividends accruing will bo placed to the credit
if each member.
From thc character of tho men comprising
his association, lhere can be little doubt of its
ucccss. Thc system baa been tried in Europe
,nd in the North, and has proved to bc prufit
.blc and advantageous. Since the project was
tarted in this city, it baa met with general
?ivor, and a large number of young men, who
.re dependent on their own resources, have
lonneeted themselves with the association.

Address by Professor Miles.
The Charleston College Chapel last night.
wa? c -owdcd to its utmost capacity with the
intellect, the fashion and tho beauty of our
good old city,-all come to do honor to the dis?
tinguished orator of the evening, and to gather
wisdom from his lips. How great the contrast
between that audience of last uight, the occa?
sion that called them together, and tho range
of subjects under consideration, and tho stormy
faction now abusing a nation's trust at tho
capital, and their base and selfish aims. Truly
the humanities have still a strong hold upon
our people, and we deem it no small priviloge
to be permitted to record the fact.
On the stigo we observed the venerable
Daniel Ravouol, Esq., thc President of the
Board of Trustees; Rev. Bishop W. M. Wight?
man, ono of tho illustrious graduates of the
College ot' Charleston; Rev. C. C. Pinckney,
President Middleton and Professors Miles aud
Porcher. After prayer by Rev. C. C. Pinckney,
Mr. Martin, tho President of the Christomatbic
Society, introduced Rev. J. W. Miles, tho anni?
Mr. Miles announced as his subject, "The
Scholar." After some preliminary remarks on
tho vast domain of science, and the impossi?
bility of any one man compassing tho whole,
he spoke of the unity of knowledgo and of the
harmony that pervades the entire cycle of the
sciences. He referred to Hie attractiveness of
study-to its influence upon the mind in arous?
ing attention, necessitating comparison, analy?
sis, and synthesis; in acquiring the power of
abstraction and generalization; in the develop?
ment of the judgment to tho formation of
criticism, in its lower as in its higher forms
whether it be criticism of words, grammar aud
lexicography, or criticism of ideaa and action
in history and philosophy. In this pursuit tho
scholar will learn not only tacts, but princi?
ples-not knowledge merely, but wisdom.
He next adverted to the resources of tho
scholar, first among which, ho enumerated
languages and literature, dwolling with all a
scholar's grace, enthusiasm and partiality upon
tho attractions ol' comparative philology.
Measured by this science, the obacureshjtribes,
and the moat cultivated nations, became equal
objects of human interest ; tho uncouth mono?
syllabic of the barbarian, not anfroquently
proring a surer guido to tho ethnologist than
thc classic syntax of tho most polished civiliza?
Max Muller himself could not have argued
on his favorite ground with more enthusiasm,
learning or eloquence than ?lid Professor
Miles cn the advantages of comparative phil?
ology. Nor was it Sanscrit alono he eulogized.
Ho set forth, briefly but forcibly, tho advanta?
ges ot the so-called dead tongues-the lan?
guages of Demosthenes, Plato and Cicero.
Mr. Miles has bcon known as good philologist,
classical, modern and oriental, and as a strong
advocate of the study of languages as a moans
of culture. Wo recollect reading, many years
ago, an eloquent and voiy loamed address by
him on this samo subject.
We regret that time and space forbid our
riving more of this splendid address, preg?
nant as it was with thought, chaste in diction,
md delivered with easy graco. As it is, wo
:car we have dono injustice to tho orator with
;hoso of our reader? who may never have had
;hc pleasure of hearing him. Ho spoke in
ouching terms of thc consolation and the re
vards of the scholar. But we must cease.
After tho conclusion of Mr. Miles'address,
Hr. Martin delivered an address in Latin. His
inundation was clear, his port easy and dig?
nified, and gestures graceful. He was listened
o with marked attention, and loudly applaud
id. The pronunciation of tho Latin, we ob
erved, was conlinenlnl, and not the barbarous
Tho exercises wero concluded with tho vale
lictory address by Mr. P. P. Frost, w ho had
elected for Ins subject, "Decision of Charac
er,"and acquitted himself with much credit.
Mr. Dauor'a binni filled up tho intervals of
?me between the speakers with a concord ol
weet sounds, which contributed materially lo
ho enjoyment of tho evening.
CITY IMPROVEMENTS-A Nsw HOTEL FOE
JRIMINALS.- In sentencing the offenders who
ome before his court, Mayor Burns has inti
nated that a workhouse would soon bo prepared
or their reception, where they would no longer
?at tho bread of idleness. Tho workhouso of
Ilia city has not boon tonablo since tho war,
.nd. at the request of the Coard of Health,
ilr. Barbo!, thc City Engineer, has examined
he premises, and is now preparing a roport
hereon, showing what may bo necessary tn
ransform th.' building into a hospital. Mr.
tarbot ha i prepared a plan ol' tho
milding with the proposed changes, which
viii ho presented lo Council at an early day.
X ia not nfc to predict what action will be
alien on tho subject, as this and similar mat?
ten; wore postponed to allow Mayor Burna to
jecoino acquainted with tho facta, rho edifice
? ill have to bc materially changed even if used
is a house ol correction, because being con?
ducted years ago, it was intended only as a
itroughold for refractory negroes. PFrom thc
ength of tho bcntcnces iniposod in the
Hayor's Court, it ia evident that General Bums
utends lo make the offenders work for their
ward. Otherwise, their dotcntion would prove
in expense to tho oily. There are a class of of?
ender? in every city, who require aome whole
lo nc punishment before they can be induced to
nend their evil ways, and Charleston certainly
las her share. Thc jail and celia in theguard
lousea aro not suited for thia purpose, and
micas a chain gang, or house of correction is
atablished, theso refractory characters will be
a much a burden to tho city when confined, as
rhea they aro committing their depredations.

FIRE.-About ll o'clock last night tho alarm
bell struck Ward No. 5; the engines rallied and
tho fire was soon traced to a wooden house on
the south sido of Woolfe-street, a few doors
east ol Meeting. J ho house waB the property
of Air. J. F. Murphy, and was unoccupied. The
fire originated in the second story, and, though
burning fiorcoly when discovered, was soon ex?
tinguished. The fire was evidently the work
of an incendiary. We learn that it was fully
SERMON BY RT. REV. DB. P?RSICO.--Our
Catholic friends will be glad to learn that the
above-named learned and distinguished divine
will proach in tho Cathedral Chapel to-morrow
evening at half-past seven o'clock. Bishop
P?rsico is an elcoquent and pleasing speaker,
whatever may be his theme, and never more
-o than when engaged in elucidating the beau?
tiful truths of Christianity.
Tho Lenten course of sermons will be
preached by Right Rev. Dr. P?rsico on the
Sunday evenings during Lent, with vespers
and benediction at 7 o'clock. The subject
or to-morrow evening will bo "The Unity of
the Church." A collection will be taken up
after tho sermon to aid the church in procur?
ing a new orgau.
POLITICAL MEETINO.-A moating was held
at tho Military Hall last night to make arrange?
ments for nominating membors of the legisla?
ture. It was attended principally by the col?
ored people, only a small sprinkling of whites
being present. The Charleston delegates to
t'.ic convention were conspicuous, and did the
principal part of tho speaking. Sam Dicken?
son, the colored doorkeeper to the convention,
was elected Chairman, and two colorod
secretaries were appointed. After speeches
from F. A. Bawyor, C. C. Bowen, E.
W. M. Mackey, II. C. DcLarge, F. L. Car
Joza and others, it was determined to
elect eight delegates from each Ward, who aro
to meet on Wednesday night and nominate
uino mombers for tho legislature. The Re?
publican nominating convention will assemble
in this city ot) tho 10th proximo. It was,
therefore, deemed advisablo to have the pre?
liminary meotings hold before that time. The
speeches were of no marked importance and
tho proceedings of no general interest. The
elections will in all probability bo manipulated
by the Charleston delegates, who will tako
good care to sccuro tho offices for themselves.

The dist anguished feature of this SUPER-PHOS?
PHATE tro ar other similar Fertilizers is, that all of
its ingrediiuts are of animal origin, and are either
soluble in w Uer, or in a condition to quickly become
soluble in tl.e soil and be taken up by the crop.
Contains no inert or mineral materials.
The pro- >cr relative proportion of the ingredients
in MAPEs' St PER-PHOSPHATE to meet tho re?
quirement! i of the Colton crop on Georgia and South
Carolina s oils, is fully proved by the experience of
planters who te stifled that wherever applied, even to
land noted for rusting cotton, the disease ls entirely
corrected, ind a healthy, vigorous growth produced.
On the tan e land Peruvian Guano and other fertil?
izers have .ailed to secure a healthy growth.
