FOBT SUMTES_This battered fortress that
stood the shock of war fer nearly four years
is now the great popular point of interest in
our harbor. Scarcely a day passes without a
visit from parties of Northern tourists, whose
-principal desire is to see the ruined walls and
tojsecure some bit of iron or other memento
of the siege. The yacht Eleanor makes the
passage at stated hours each day, and is sel?
dom without a foll complement of passengers
These visitors come prepared to see every
thing. They are armed with opera glasses
and carry baskets to contain the relics that
they may collect. No Southern tour is con
sidered complete unless the world renowned
Sumter is inspected. Fortunately fer Charle?
ton, the tourists are usually wealthy, and scat?

R. 8. Canby.
LOUIS V. CAZLiBC, A. D. C.,
Acting Assistant Adjatant-Generai.
After reading the order, he addressed Coun?
cil as follows:
Gentlemen : It is perhaps due to you and the
.citizens of Charleston to say that this change
was contemplated when I accepted the appoint?
ment, time being given for Colonel Cogswell to
arrange his business. It was thought better
not to make it public lest the rapport and
countenance necessary to success would not
fibw towards a temporary appointment. I
freely accord to every gentleman in this Coun?
cil, and indeed to every citizen with whom I
have had intercourse, and even to those who
are strangers to me, my testimony for prompt
and full confidence, without which success
would not have been reached. I sincerely re?
commend the same cordial support for my sue-11
cessor, so that the affairs ot the city may

Gentlemen: In taking my seat I shall try to

to consider me a Charlestonian and to the

bis office: be it, therefore.
Resolved, That we tender to our late Mayor
our thanks for his uniform kindness aud cour?

ton, and we trust and have every reason to be?
lieve that the same vigorous measures to pro?
mote the prosperity of Charleston, and to sse
the city ordinances enforced, will be continued
iby his successor in office.
Alderman Whilden gave notice of a bill to
amend thc ordinance to raise supplies for the
year 1868, and for other purposes, and asked
tthat the notice be considered the first reading,
*vhich was granted.

In the Circuit Court John T. Spearman, Esq.,

MAYOR'S COCBT.-The court-room yesterday
was early filled with a motley crowd, who, with?
out regard to class, color, or previous condi?
tion, elbowed each other rigorously, tho
stronger succeeding in obtaining the coveted
position near the railing. At 9 o'clock the
police dignitaries took their seats, and a few
moments later General Burns, accompanied
by the new military incumbent, Colonel Cogs?
well, appeared on the scene. General Burns
simply conducted the new mayor to his seat
and retired. Colonel Cogswell immediately
entered on the duties of his position, and from
the severity of the fines imposed, it is fair to
presume that he intends offenders to fot"; the
terrors of the law.
The first cases presented were two that had
been postponed from Saturday. A choleric in?
dividual assaulted a female who called loudly
[br the police. The . knights of the star re?
sponded promptly, but their authority was
disputed by the offender and a companion.
Clubs, however, proved to be tramps, and the
pair were forced to throw up their hands and
surrender. The Mayor considered the attack
unjustifiable, and said the police authority
must be upheld. The first offender was fined
$50, and the second ,~who voluntarily joined in
the fray, will have to pay $100 for his impetu?
A keeper of a sailor's boarding house in
Queen-street, whose guests indulged in a few
Liberties, was fined $20.
Two darkies whose 'saccharine tastes led
them to trespass on Kerr's wharf and sound
the depths of some molasses hogsheads were
arrested by the vigilant police. The ca6e waa
clear, and though they protested their inno?
cence and almost swore that sugar made them
sick, the sentence was passed, $10 or ten days,
where sugar is unknown.
A colored matron whose bell had been re?
peatedly pulled at the dead of night grew
wrathy and emptied her slop jar on her adver?
saries' heads. They staid not to exclaim with
a youth in a similar fix, "thou rain-est in this
bosom," but fled incontinently. A policeman
who saw the waterfall arrested the prime actor,
and she was charged $5 for the performance.
Four publicans who neglected their reb'g-'ous
duties and sold liquor on Sunday acknowledged
the corn and paid the penalty-$20 fine-with
a good grace.
A colored man who had been caught ex?
posing his person in an indecent manner was
A skirmish between two of Alric's ebon sons
resulted in the arrest of one who flourished a
kn Lie. The warrior was condemned to pay $10
or go to workhouse for ton days and learn an?
other manual of arms.
A 6m all colored boy who rejoiced in tho name
of Seabrook Mills was brought before thc
Mayor, by bis father, to be corrected. He stated
that he was incorrigible, and his parent;; could
do nothing with him. To his surprise he was
bold to slope and do his own whipping.
Another bright colored specimen, of a botan
cal turn of mind, was found trespassing in it
gentleman's yard. His excuse was that he was
bunting for a few jap?nicas. The Mayor
thought miner ology was better suited to bia
taste, and sent him to crack stones for ten
One of the chiffoniers was accused of tree
passing, but proved his innocence and was re?
leased to resume his rag picking.
A duskey Ethiop, whose conscience was
pliable, stole a croBS-troo from a yard. He

burn it. He received a fifteen days' ticket.

EXAMINATION AT THE CHABLESTON COLLEGE.
-The graduating class of this institution as?
sembled yesterday morning in the Prebideut's
room, and underwent a close and searching ex?
amination on the course of studies which they
havo hitherto pursued. Tho questions pro?
pounded embraced a very wide scope, and the
answers of the young men generally gave evi?
dence of good judgment as well as hard study.
There were but few prepared to enter college
at the close of the war, though tho number of
studonts has largely increased during the past
year. The present graduating class, owing to
tho circumstance mentioned, consists of but
two members, Mr. Edwin Parker FroBt and Mr.
W. St. Julian Jervey. These gentlemen have tra?
versed the entire curriculum prescribed in the
college previous to the war, and their uniformly
correct deportment and scholastic application
has won the highest encomiums from tho facul?
ty. Tho remaining classes will be examined
two weeks hence, and the commencement will
take place on tho last Tuesday in March. Hun?
dreds of Charlestonians, who claim the Charles?
ton College as their alma maier, are gratified
to see this revival of interest in the institution,
which i9, as it should bo, an object of pride to
our whole community.
JULIA DEA>*-In our last issue wo announced
the news that Mrs. Julia Dean Cooper, the
well-known actress, died in New York on Fri?
day morning at the residence of her father-in
law, No. 231 East Thirty-ninth street, aged 37.
Julia Dean was introduced to the public of
New York through the effort? nt her father, an
actor of repute and ab5' , ai .at fifteen or
seventeen years ago, at the Old Broadway
Theatre, and at the ?stor-place Opera House,
and at once achieved what in those days was
considered an immense success. The part of
Julia in Sheridan Knowles' play of the "HULCII
back," was then her speciality, and she clung
to lt as her leading representation to the very
latest .of her acting days. Her beauty and
talent won for her during the first ten
years of her career a wide reputation, espe?
cially through the Wost and South. At
tho close of that period she married
Dr. Arthur P. Hayne, of thia city. The mar?
riage, however, proved uncongenial, and she
returned to the stage she had left. Seven or
eight years after she moved to San Franoisco.
In the intervening time she had been playing
with great pecuniary success (supporting her
husband and children) in California, Idaho,
Oregon, Utah and Minnesota. Two or three
years ago she separated from her husband,
and, on the grounds of failure to support, ob?
tained a divorce from him in the Utah courts,
in 1866 she married a Mr. Cooper, of New
York. Since her last marriage she has played
but one or two engagements. Her health had
been feeble for several years-she suffered
from trouble in the throat, and her nervous
system was a good deal shattered. She was a
lady of good conversational powers, high lite?
rary culture, sparkling wit, and is said to have
been greatly beloved by those who knew her in
private life. Her devotion to her profession
was entire and religious. She loved her art,
and hated everything that cheapened or de?
graded it. Her father is still living in St.
Louis. She leaves three children in San Fran?
PUBLIC MEETING AT WALTEBBOBO'.-A meet?
ing of the people of Co He ton District took place
at the courthouse in Walterboro' on Monday
last, to express, in accordance with Governor
Perry's suggestion, their sympathy with Presi?
dent Johnson and the Democratic party in the
pending struggle for constitutional liberty,
john D. Warren, Esq., was called to preside,
and F. G. Behre chosen as Secretary. The
Hon. Carlos Tracy introduced the following
Resolved, That the people of tho South were
not driven to secession tnrojgh opposition to
the Constitution of the United States, but
from opposition to tho party which threatened
its guarantees, and now tramples the instru?
ment under foot.
Resolved, That the people of this district be?
lieve that the success of the Constitutional
or Democratic party will effect a complete res?
toration of tho Union, and this only.
Resolved, That, with a view to such a reso?
lution, and for tho furtherance of the Demo?
cratic cause, an association be formed by the
people of this District, to be called the "Demo?
cratic Association of Colleton District," the
duty of the members of which will be to use
their utmost influence and exertion in peace?
able opposition to every measure, in the judg?
ment of this association, in violation of the
Constitution of the United States.
Resolved, That it will be a cardinal doctrine
of this association, that the "acts of Congress,"
known as the Reconstruction acts, are in gross
violation of the Constitution of the United
States, and that opposition thereto and to the
acts done thereunder is, and will be, an espe?
cial duty of the members of this association.
Resolved, That a committee of eleven be ap
fiointed by the chair to nominate and report to
his meeting a person for President, two per?
sons tor vice-Presidents, and one for Secretary
of this association, who will form a board for
the supervision and direction of its interests,
and who will report their action, and that of
such sub-boards as they may appoint, to such
meetings of this association as the President,
or the acting President, may call.
Resolved, That it is neither the-purpose nor
the desire of this association to deny either the
colored or the black population any protection
to their persons or their property in the civil
rights enjoyed by thc white race, but that,
conceding tho usefulness which they ean ex?
ert, and the respectability to which they may
attain, the members of this association do not
deem it consistent with the interests of society
at the South, nor with their own self-respect,
that they should be willing, for political power,
to be committed to those-uo recently ?laves.
Mr. Tracy advocated the resolutions in an
eloquent address, and the question being then
taken, they were unanimously adopted. AU
who wore present, with few exceptions, then
signed the roU of the association, and the
