CACSE AND CUBE, BT JAPHETH.-Thia is the
title of a neatly printed pamphlet essay just
issued from the presses of Joseph Walker, in
which the author, in a somewhat crude argu?
ment undertakes to demonstrate the causes of j
all our troubles, and the remedy as well. It is
on sale at the booksellers.
THE THEATRE.-The "Octoroon" was re?
peated last night to a full house, a number of |
whom had attended the previous perform?
ance. Mrs. Glandstane's rendering of "Zoe,

THE Flax COMMISSION held by Chief Nathan
pu the recent attempt to fire the premises at
the corner of King and Warren streets, closed
yesterday. A bucket filled w. th rag?, and cot?
ton was found in a closet on the second floor,
and the fire was also set in the roof. Mrs. Dal
wick and son were not at home at the time,
and the alarm was given by a servant girl.
After a full and careful examination of this
. girl and other witnesses, it was found impossi?
ble to obtain any clue to the incendiary, and
the report was referred to the Mayor.
A CUT THROAT.-Among the cases brought
before the Mayor yesterday morning was that
. of Jeff. Williams, who was charged with hav?
ing cut the throat of Moses Washington, while
. the latter was sleeping. It appeared that they
hafe quarrelled about a woman, and Jeff feeling
. aggrieved entered the house in Amheret-street
through the window and cut Moses' throat with
. a razor. Fortunately the wound waa not mor?
tal, and a doctor being called in it was sewed
up, and he is now in a fair way of recovery.

MEETTJRO-STBEET.-The improvements now | j
: in progress along this thoroughfare have been
materially advanced in the last few days. On
?he east side between Queen and Cumberland
i streets the asphaltum sidewalk is nearly com?
pleted, while the picket fence that endoses the
. burnt district has received a ooat of yellow
- wash that renders it quite ornamental The
: attifes flagging on the west side of the street is
' being relaid in an even manner, and this street
will soon become a popular promenade as the
ups and downs of life will be not so perceptible
on a smooth sidewalk. The removal of the
pillars from in front of Circular Church has
. also added greatly to the appearance of the
n street, and if the civil authorities could be in
- duced to plant a few shade trees along the
sidewalk, the work of reconstruction would be
completo, and their constituents would praise
. them evermore.
DEATH OF A PROMINENT BUSINESS MAN.
" The funeral of Mr. William C. Small, which took
place yesterday at the Glebe-street Presbyterian
. Church, was largely attended by the friends
and relatives of the deceased. He had been
. sick but a short time, and his sudden demise
was entirely unexpected. Mr. Small was for
years connected with the Wholesale dry goods
business on Meeting-street, and had probably
- a larger circle of acquaintances than most
. merchants. His popularity with the country
buyers enabled him to command a high posi
- t:oa, and before the war he became connected
with the firm of Chamberlain, Isaacs & Co.
After the dissolution of this firm he was
. associated with Messrs. John G. Milnor & Co.,
which position he retained at the time of his
- death. There are few persons who would be
more missed, or whose death has caused a
greater void in the family circle and among
his business friends. Mr. Small was affable,
.kind, and ever ready to lend a helping hand to
a brother in distress.
CITY IMPBOVEMESTS-THE WOBE GOES BRAVE?
ST- ON.-There is scarcely a section of the city
: Shat does not show some signs of the improve
. ment now being effected by the municipal au
. thorities. This has had the result of atiniu
.lating the citizens to a Bimilar degree of enter?
prise, and they have joined readily in the good
work. Their houses have, in many instances,
been re-painted, while in some localities new
buildings are in the course of erection. The
interest taken by the powets that be in the ad?
vancement of the city has not been unnoticed
and there are few persons who are not willing
to lend their aid to the good cause of recon?
struction. Among the proposed improve?
ments there are few that demand more
attention than the shell-road. This will be not
only a positive advantage to the people at large
but will be a source of pleasure to the owners
. of bcrse-flesh, who like to try their coursers on
a smooth road. Our new Mayor is determined
. to make Charleston what she was, and will spare
no pains to effect such improvements as may
be necessary. In addition to tho public works
now progressing, he designs at an early day
completing the repairs on the Mall and Battery.
These are tho only breathing spots in the city,
and should be restored to their pristine ap?
pearance. The iron railing around the Battery
will be replaced and seats furnished for the
uumrner visitors ; the mall will also receive the
same attention and be made a public park. Thc
city treasury is not in the most plethoric con?
dition, and as the laborers must be paid the
Mavor relies on the geaerous support of those
jjstoperty owners who see the necessity of the
proposed chaDges and appreciate the efforts I
?nade to improve the city. j

The best and best beloved of oar State, tl

"Hibernians," and, to-day, one of the most L

associations connected with refreshment ol
jody and soul. As an evidence of the esprit du

THE HEGULAE TOASTS.
After ample justice had been done to t
several courses, the cloth was removed, ai
President O'Neill, after warniog the compai
to charge their glasses, read the first regul
toast as follows : '
Tte Day we Celebrate: Ever fresh andgrei
in the memory of all true Irishmen.
General James Conner responded to the se
timent as follows :
The committee have done me the honor
request me to respond to the sentiment ju
given, "The Day we Celebrate"-the festal di
of one whose privilege it was to leave his nan
revered as the symbol of a nation.
After a life stretched far beyond the ordinal
term allotted to men, and devoted to the higl
est of human objects, the advancement i
christianity and the improvement of his fello
men, the good bishop sank to rest, cheerei
perhaps, by the thought that the good whic
he had done might live after him, and presen
his name and fame in the memory of thoe
among whom his lifo had been passed. Bt
what delight would have fill efl his soul cou!
be have seen, as in a vision, that the litt]
island in the ocean, the scene of his earth]
labors and triumphs-poor, scantily peoplet
without arts, or song or letters, unknown an
unhonored-would one day fill the earth wit
its fame; that the eloquence of its orators, tb
songs of its poets, and the valor of its peoph
would be treasured as memories which th
world would not willingly let die; and tba
through all that crowded island, rich in he
roic achievements-far above all the fame c
its orators, its poets or its chieftains, hi
name would be honored and his memor
preserved as the richest possession of a people
and beyond even the limits of the world know
to him, far in the .west, and farther still in th
summer seas of the Indian Ocean would ans
new worlds, throughout whose broad domain
his namo would be a household word linking a
in the bonds of common nationality all to whoa
the name of Ireland is dear.
For sixty-seven years we and those who havi
gone before us have celebrated this day in tokei
of the love we have for the land from which wi
sprung. Far removed from the scene of her tria
we have yet watched with interest her struggle:
to burst the doathly cerements of dependenci
and rise to the life of a free people. We have ec ei
her struggles end in failure and mourned ove:
her hopes deferred. But the darkness seems
at last to be passing away.
Even now we hear
A motion toiling in the gloom,
The spirit of the years to come,
Yearning to mix himself with life.
The thought may yet wed with fact; and whet
in the fullness of time that consummation bf

The second regular toast was then read :
Ireland- The Lane of our Nativity : May we
live to see her occupy a proud position as one
of the nations of the earth.
This called out M. P. O'Connor, Esq., who
spoke as follows :
Mr. President and Gentlemen: The senti?
ment you have just so gladly hailed, kindles
anew within me the flame of affection and hope
ior the land whose national festival we this day
Ireland-What is she? Rising fresh from
old ocean, enthroned upon the western wave of
the Atlantic, crowned with the wreath of every
genius, and decorated with every virtue, there
sits thb green isle of the west. Eternal ver?
dure robes her romantic hills-her lakes re?
flecting back from their placid surface the
forms of her antique round towers as they loom
forth from her towering cliffs like so many
monuments to her departed. Her pleasant
rivers, the Shannon and tho Lee, winding their
way in unison with the merry peals of her bells
that chime forth from every steeple in
Ireland, and her capitol gathering within
its walls the proudest of her talent and her
beauty-with a yoke upon the necks of her
fieoplo, and a rod in the hands of her rulers,
n the hovel of the poor, destitution and dis?
tress weeps its silent tear-from the exile on
the deep is sent up the wild shriek of dispair,
while joyously the cup goes round in the pala?
ces of the rich. This is but an imperfect pic?
ture of one of nature's most favored climes.
Resembling the favored but outcast child of
fortune, though worn and haggered in as?
pect, and deep-sunken are the furrows of
oppression upon her cheek, the eye still can
discern the outlines of a once splendid figure.
.'Oh, Erin 1 when nature embellished with tints,
Thy fields sud thy mountains so fair,
'Twas never intended that tyranny should print
Tte footsteps of slavery there."
Ireland-what has she done ?
Fontenoy bursts upon my view with the tro
?thies of that immortal field, which boheld
oined in happy concord thc Harp of Erin with
the Lilies of France, as they were borne
through the thickest of the fight, upheld by
the gallant O'Dillon brigade. What has she
done? She has nerved the arm that smote
her; and sustained the power that spurned her
and lavished hex strength, her talent and her
treasures, and buoyed up on the prodigal ef?
fusion of her young" blood the triumphant ark
of British liberty. What has she done ? The
S'iosts of Barry and Montgomery speak from
eir tombs. Inkermann, and Alma and the
Tchernaya atLest the superior bravery of Irish
troops led on by British generals, who never
flinched in the face of tho foe as they charged
against the advancing hosts of Russia ! And
the star of McMahon rose refulgent in
an Italian sky, when his intrepid valor won for
him the imperial reward of a marshal's baton
and a dukedom, amid the crash of French and
Austrian battalions, and amid the carnage and
slaughter of Magenta. What has Ireland done ?
She has engrafted her vigorous and enterpris?
ing stock upon every family of the Caucasian
race. The generous "and aspiring blood of her
exiled children has been emptied into the ex?
hausted veins of decaying nationalities and
quickened them into new life, and vigor, and
existence. The refreshing streams of her
life-giving current have been poured like
an inundation over this Western World, fer?
tilizing our hills aud valleys, and mak?
ing the garden bloom where the wilder?
ness howled. That steady stream of ener
gv, and vitality, and patriotic blood, like the
courses of the "Missouri, the Ohio, and the Ar?
kansas tributaries which flow on their never
ceasing tide to mingle with the mighty father
of waters, rolla onward, westward, northward
and eastward, to be moulded and blended into
the oue great and commou American national?
And Ireland-what will she bc ? Time alone
can tell. Right and justice may prophecy. The
genius of Liberty will point the way.
Ireland-what will she be ?
? Great, glorious and free !
First flower of the earth,
And first gem of the sea."
The third regular toast was then read:
South Carolina- The home of oui- adoption:
We pledge ourselves to make her as in days of
yore (a state).
W. E. Mikel!, Esq., being loudly called upon
responded as follows:
Gentlemen of Ike Hibernian Society: At the
request of vour Committee of Arrangements I
risc to respond to the sentiment jnst an?
nounced, although I do so with great hesita?
It has been usual on occasions of tLis kind
for one of the officials of the State, in whom
she has reposed her confidence aud trust, to
occupv this position, but, ge.itlemen, the ?State
which" vou and I, and all of us, so deeply aDd
sincerely love btu lost her political existence,
and ber official representatives have bevu de?
nied the honor and privilege of exercising the
tunctiona of their office by a power beyond
control. It is, therefore, with diffidence and
hesitation that I occupy this position. I eau
recall with loud recollection the gallantry of, .
the sons of the State, the wisdom of her st
men, and the eloquence of her orators; ]
recall those who have laid down in the <
around whose graves we have gathered,
whose memories wo shall revere while lift
dures. Liberty of speech may be contro
liberty of action may be circumscribed,
the fond privilege of mdulging in these re
tiona cannot be limited by any power in
known world. "While we live we snail cont
to oherish the memory of our defenders,
leaders, and our statesmen.
Of the future of South Carolina I have
little to say. It is beyond our guidance or i
tool. A great experiment is to be tried, ai
that experiment fails, upon none of us will
the responsibility. It is none of our work
none of our seeking. [Applause.]
Tbore is that, however, Mr. Presiden!
which I can speak without trespassing u
the bounds of propriety. No State in the bi
land in which we Uve has ever welcomed
Irish emigrant more warmly upon her sh<
than the once proud State of 8outh Carol
With equal confidence I can assert that when
emigrant has become domiciled among us
State has greeted him with affection, or de'
ed itself to the development of his inter?
and welfare more than our own South Carol
One word more. If in the future, a ma
resignation to that which we cannot contre
resignation to " the powers that be" is reqoi
to ensore the prosperity of Sooth Carob'
I say that nowhere will there be found m
submission than among the citizens of So
CaroUna. Of the dispensation of Provider
it is not for me to conjecture, but when pr<
England points to her statesmen and poets, i
calls up the gifted sons of Ireland to i lins tr
her greatness, may not we too, rely upon i
adopted citizens and exult in the possessio!
an element of strength and progress ? Is
mit to you whether such men or their descei
ants can be derelict in the pledges which tl
made to you on this occasion ? (Applause >.
The fourth regular1 toast was then read:
The City of Charleston-''The City by I
Sea:" We look forward with confidence to I
time when she will again resume her forn
position amongst her sisters.
His Honor Mayor Cogswell in rising to
spond, was enthusiastically received, and spc
as foUows :

Heaven speed the day which shines on ot
trans-Atlantic Bister-Catholic, free Ireland.
The fifth regular toast was then read:
Z7te President of ike Untied Stales: Tl
staunch supporter of constitutional rights.
B. C. Doryea, Esq., being oaUed opon to n
spond, spoke as follows :
Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Hibernia
In the absence of the gentleman appointe
to respond to the sentiment offered to tt
head of the nation, I have been requested b
the committee to make some remarks on tb
present occasion. In so doing, I feel honore
m being permitted to say a word in behalf c
that great man who stands erect amid the hu
moil of revolution, unawed and unappa?ed b
the dangers which surround him. The Presi
dent of the United States, in my nombi
opinion, stands second to none of his prede
c068ora. [Applause.] Called to bis posi
tion, almost by chance, at a time o
great and terrible trial, without
party to support him, suspected by one side
hated by tho other, and loved by none, h
stands to-day, the representative of the con
stitutional liberty of America. [Applause.
He is perhaps the only man who ever hell
possession of that high office, under the sam
circumstances. And if the present generatdoi
may not do him j as tico, history will write hi
epitaph and engrave his memory opon pa
gea that wiU never die. [Applause.]
The sixth toast was :
The Judiciary: The Palladium of oar Uber
ties: heretofore unsullied in its purity.
This caUed out the Hon. W. D. Lesesne, whe
I was kindly forewarned, Mr. President, thai
it would be expected of me to acknowledge th<
expression of respect that woold be applied t<
the Judiciary of South Carolina upon this oc?
casion. History, sir, has anticipated vom
praise in regard to many of the iUustrioui
names of the past. Speaking for those whe
are now invested with political authority, and
charged with judicial duty, permit me to saj
that tbe approbation of such a body of citizens
as this is a matter of real gratification. rAp

diciary cannot be overstated; and it depends
verv much upon the feeUng with which the
judicial office is pubUcly regarded, and tho
dignity with which it is clothed; of what sort
of persons appointments are made. In Sooth
Carolina respect for the office has hitherto
always been the popular sentiment, and has
imparted to the judge, in advance, a moral
power, in the exercise of which a conscientious
mau cannot but feel the profoundest responsi?
bilities. [Great applause.] And if, sir, the
judiciary of South Carolina DO justly entitled to
the compliment bestowed opon them, it is to
these caoses that it may be ascribed. It is for
these reasons that men have always been se?
lected because of their supposed fitness, aod
because they cannot be enticed from their pro?
fession by venal motives or bad ambition.
Mr. President, in accordance with usage,
I wiU close these remarks with a t^ast, and
ask you to join me in doing honor to a fellow
citizen, strangely misunderstood in some
localities, but whose lofty characteristics make
him a type of the men who conferred renown
upon our commonwealth in her best days
wise, cultivated, chivalric, unconquerable and
patriotic in the most elevated sense of the
word. I offer you the health and happiness of
Wade Hampton ! [Great cheering.]
The seventh toast was:
Tlve Press : Honestly and intelligently con?
ducted, there is no better advocate of oar
rights aod our liberties.
This was responded to by Mr. F. W. Dawson,
of THE DALLI NEWS, ns foUows.
In these times of doubt and danger it is dif?
ficult to determine what is most proper to be
said upon the subject of tho Southern press;
but certain it is that newspapers, like men,
cannot now live honorably or well it they de?
pend on politics alone.
From political feeUng and political principle
no one can hold himself altogether aloof, but
every man must remember that, while in Tears
gone by, the party was but tbe exponent of tho
priuciple, in these later days priuciple has
been made to bow and kneel to party. The
name is nothing; it matters not now or what
we are called. Let us go back to the fountain
and source of all public polity; let us resolve
to be pure in our lives, just in our dealings,
faithful citizens and true friends, and time may
be trusted to work aU things aricht, to assert
the truths of an Eternal Providence and justify
the ways of God to men.
Politics at this hour cut more mortally than
a two-edged sword, and a simple faith in
ourselves and our future ia the sorest pob
lic creed. Suffering is the task master by
whom heroes arc trained, and we have
it deep in our hearts that valour and self
sacrifice have never been displayed in vam.
The seed mav have seemed to fall on barren
ground, the promises of tho tj?npter may be
hard to resist, but those who have had it graven
un their souls bv vears of trial that the right
is eternal and shall prevail. wiU not doubt or
falter, qurjrcl or rapronch. but will patiently
await the coming of thc inevitable end-not the
end which justifies the mean3,but the cud which
vindicates thc cause.
We have arouud us a country rich in re?
sources, requiring only power-white man
power-to develope it iuto one of tho most ie
licitous regions of the earth. Aud I toll yon,
unworthv as I nra, standing here as a repre?
sentative of the Southern press, and the press
of South Carotina, I tell you that it is a country
which car. never, shnll never, relapse into bar?
barism -a country which none out the white
man shall ever sway or mle.
And if all else fails, depend we surely may
upon those young Southern men who hold in
their hands, ia so large a measure, the future
destinies of the Sooth. Many of them still me
boys, they hare been trained and discipline
have learned obedience and endurance, and av
bean free from the enervating influences of ii
dolent youthful years. Life and its re sp ona
bilities for them came hand in hand, ana the
would be false to the memory of thc
fathers if weak and careless now. Whi
they find to do, they must do wr? a
their might, and from beginning to end tl
Southern press must encourage and chee
them on. For them there will be an inspin
tion in every rusty sabre, in every broken ri ri
in every name that is hallowed and sanctifie
in the South; for them there will be the rc
membrance of a thousand pains and joys; a
prompting them and animating them to b
true young soldiers of the. South, fighting th
arch-enemy despair with pen or plough, scytb
or reaping-hook, axe or hammer, crying on
'Tis not in mortals-to command se coes s,
Well do more-deserve it I
One moment more and I have done. This i
the first time that I have appeared among yoi
as a member of your body, and while my hc;.i
is warm with the remembrance of what Irish
men were, and with the knowledge of wba
Irishmen are-while I am filled with hope fd
the future of that dear motherland, whose for
tune and welfare are your desire by day ant
your dream by night, allow me-as the young
est Irishman among you-to ask yon to jon
with me in the one simple fervent prayer
God bless Ireland !
The last regular toast was :
Woman: Earth without woman is a seem
without attraction-a desert without a flower
Loud calls being made for Mr. W. D. Clancy
that gentleman rose and responded as fol
In rising to respond to the toast which hat
just been offered, I am sensible, Mr. President
that no words of mine can add to the enthusi?
asm with which the name of woman has been
welcomed by this company. To the Lashmar,
the sentiment of womanhood is the synonym
of all that is lofty iifc^hought and generous ir
feeling; for, and when", be mourns, as he must
do, the oppression of bis unhappy country,
what metaphor so aptly illustrates the tender?
ness of his grief as the idea of his suffering
mother. Around that sacred namo centre thc
holiest affections of his being, and the uncon?
scious spell with which maternity charmed his
babyhood is the allegiance which bis manhood
acknowledges to the sovereign power of Love.
In venturing a few words more, I will not
speak of those heroic women who have played
conspicuous parts in the world's great draina,
and whose names are forever linked with the
fame of empire, nor of these milder bnt not
less heroic natures, that, following with mater?
nal solicitude the tedious march of armies,
have appeared upon the field of carnage as
ministering angels in the hour of death, und
white robed daughters of charity, wherever
human suffering could bo relieved. The great
heart of humanity throbs in grateful acknow?
ledgment of their services, and the pen of the
historian will make their names immortal. But
I tum aside from these to speak of woman in
that bumble but far moro endearing relation
in which we find her as mother, sister, wife,
and friend. What a marvellous power of love
and tenderness God bas implanted in their
gentle hearts, and how our stern natures relax
and yield submissively to their imperial sway ?
Where shall we ?nd such manipulations of
faith and good work aa women exhibit in their
loves and in their lives.
In brooding over that irrepressi ble power
which women exercise in the economy of life,
I sometimes fancy that I discover in the strong
mau, struggling with adversity, the sams de?
pendence upon her love and sympathy vrhioh
Eromp ts the tired and troubled child to put his
ttle arms about his mother's neck, and pil?
lowing bis bead upon her faithful bosom, to
be lulled into forgetfulness of bis ills, br the
words of love and tenderness which fall from
ber faithful lips. Woman's instinct is man's
highest wisdom, and the truth which bo fain
would seek for m the stars, her intuition dis?
cover lying at bis feet. That same love and
tenderness which gives fife to the boy, strength
and hope to the man, and comfort and conso?
lation to the decrepitude of age-what is it
but a foretaste of that divine affection which is
to be the great bond of our future society when
we shall be gathered to the bosom of the eter?
Speeches were now made in response to
toasts by Rev. W. B. Tates, Rev. I'ather
Crogbau, Mr. W. A. Kelley, Mr. Grace and
others, and a handsome song, with encore, was
sung by Mr. T. O'Neill, one of the members of
The festivities were continued until a late
hour, speech, and song, and story following
each other in quick succession, and lending
their varied attractions to the evening's enter?
The sixty-seventh anniversary of the Hiber?
nian Society will long be remembertd by all
who*participated in its celebration as .unong
the pleasantest and most spirited of nil the
