CORONER'S INQUEST.-An inquest was held
yesterday on the body of Toney Brooks, a col?
ored prisoner in the jail. Toney had been ar?
rested August 1st, 1867, for larceny, and sen?
tenced November 8th, 18C7, to one year's im?
prisonment in tho penitentiary. He was found
dead in his cell yesterday morning, and the

WE HAVE BEEN REQUESTED by Mr. J. N. Rob?
son, to state that he has just received instruc?
tions to reduce the price of the Soluble Pacific
Guano ten dollars per ton, on either cash or
time eales in future-thus bringing it within
the reach of all, and making it one of the
cheapest manures offered on the market.

THE STOCK AND MONET MARKET.-Money is
still free, and the Bank rate has been reduced
to one per cent, per month.
In the stock and share market there is con?
siderable activity, principally in railroad and
city securities. South Carolina Railroad and
Bank shares sold yesterday freely at forty, being
a rise of fifteen dollars since the annual meet?
ing held last month. Charleston City stock
sold at forty, an advance of twelve dollars, and
State Bills were bought by brokers at eighty
six. Late in the day there were sales of city
stock at even higher rates. The tendency of
the railroad market is still upward. In bank
shares there has been no large amount of
OUR COTTON MARKET.-Cotton yesterday was
quiet and prices somewhat lower. It must not
be forgotten that Charleston is in advance
of the Liverpool prices. Cotton bought
at 25 cents here must bring 10jd* in Liv?
erpool to clear waste, commissions on the
other side, freight and general expenses. Cotton
bought at 26 cents moat realize about lld. to
bri! kg the purchaser but without loss.
The fact of quotations here being higher
than corresponding quotations in Liverpool is
accounted for by the belief that prices are still
advancing, this belief being baaed upon gene?
ral information as to the Southern crop pros?
pects which has not yet been received in Eng?
land but which ia current on this side.
ST. MICHAEL'S CLOCK.-After weeks of anx?
ious expectation, it has been decided that St.
Michael's clock is to be repaired, and the con?
tract has been awarded to Mr. Summer, a pop?
ular horologist. Mr. Summer has made a
clock, and the committee tbcl confident that he
can mend one. They have decided that his
offer is the best, and if the municipal red tape
is not too binding, the work will soon be com?
menced. The contract has been made for $875,
and the contractor binds himself not only to
repair the damages and regulate the striking,
but to wind the clock for one year. Among
the applicants for the contract were black?
smiths, wheelwrights, gas fitters, and others
not acquainted with the business. The com?
mittee exercised their discretion, and have,
we trust, made a wise selection.
REAL ESTATE SALES.-Messrs. Wardlaw &
Carew sold yesterday, at the old Postoffice, the

light depression in city stock, but the rigor

sd his evident intention to better the muni

dayor Cogswell is determined to keep the
sheels of the city government in motion, and
ie h:iows that tho only motive power is green

ax bill made no provision for further interest
leeming on back debts, but arranged that tho
axes are to be paid in tri-annual instalments,
rhe first of these falls due this month, and if |
he tax-payers respond promptly, about $150,
100 will be received. A large portion of this
sum will doubtless bo paid in city bills, but a
mfficient quantity of greenbacks will be se?
cured to keep tho municipal machine in run
ling order. City bills are now almost as scarce
is tho mythical hen's teeth, and it is conti
lently expected that the entire circulation will
ae called in during tho present month. The

mount in the aggregate to a considerable <(
sum; but tho terms arc now as fixed as tho

Secret Star Chamber, until mattel's have been
cut and dried into presentable shape.
It is the first time in the political history of
any Stato in tho Union that a body which

The convention next proceeded to consider
the claims ot' candidates for Lieutenant-Gover

circulated extensively, but, as we go to presB,
the understanding is that Lemuel Boozer, of

Boozer is au old member of the legislature,
familiar with parliamentary law, and more
than any man in the convention fitted for the
ON THE STREET.
?nt? long after midnight, tho excitement
connected with the nominations was unabated.
Grave citizens and "men about town" consid?
ered the occasion of sufficient importance to
keep them out of their beds, and until a late
hour curiosity was rampant to learn the names
of candidates for whom the suffrages of the
"unwashed" are expected. Friends of the
several nom?neos vibrated with industrious
pertinacity between tho Club House and the
neighboring gas lights; and the interest ex?
