April, at Fordham's hall, on Meeting-street.
The jury entirely exonerate the brothers Ford?
ham from any blame whatever. The hall in
which the affray occurred is entirely distinct
from their place of business, has a separate
entrance, and on the occasion referred to it
appeared that the hall had been hired for danc?

til the fatal event. The funeral of Capers was
one of the largest that has been seen in
Charleston for many mouths.

Farmer's Mass, in B flat, which was effectif
rendered by the choir, assisted by a fine orel
tral accompaniment. The chapel was denE
crowded by a full congregation, besides v
many persons of other denominations.
At. St. Mary's Church high mass was su
the Rev. C. B. Northrop officiating. The e

who chose for his subject the Gospel of
! day. It was an eloquent and scholarly prod

The music was the "Eyrie," "Gloria," l
"Credo" from Mercadente's Mass in D min
and the "Sandras Benedictas " and "Ag?
Dei" from Haydn's Third Mass in C. The ri
ular choir were assisted by some of the mi
thorough musicians in the city, and from 1
ginning to end there was no room for anythi
but praise. With the opening bars of t
"Eyrie" the choir proved their ability and sk
and throughout the "Gloria," including t
stirring quartette " Laudamus te," th
singing was marked by unusual vig
expression and precision. The " Incarnatu
tenor solo, and the " Ununi Sanctam " we
sung with great taste, and the spirited " Vitt
Venturi " was delivered with excellent effe
The lovely "Hosanna" in the "Sanctu-s" t
"Benedictas" and the "Agnus Dei," were su
in a manner that v\ oald have reflected crei
upon any metropolitan choir. The so'.i we
graceful and expressive, the tre'.U were regal
and well together, and thronghont the Ma
the leading basso showed his powerful vol
to great advantage. At the offertory the lea
ing soprano sang, " I know that my Redeem
liveth" from "tie Messiah." This was tl
gem of the whole, and the singer, then,
throughout the Moss, was no more corre
in taste than charming: in tone and admirab
in execution. The organ was played with fi]
force and judgment, modulated for the pim
accompaniments and pouring forth a rich floe
of melody in the forte and choral passages.
At St. Paul's Church, Society-street, thci
were a large number of communicants at tl
7 o'clock Mass and at High Mass, at which tl
Rev. Mr. Shadier officiated and preached. Tt
church was crowded. Father Shadier took a
his text Psalm 117 v. 24: "This is the da
which the Lord hath made. Let us be gla
and rejoice therein." In the course of an ei
oellent and instructive discourse he made tl
following points : 1. The feast of the resu:
rection of our Lord is a continued feast of tl
triumph of the truth ot His teachings as pn
pagated by His church. 2. The resurrects
of the Lord is a'continuous feast of tb
triumph of virtue over vice. 3. Easter is, fina
ly, a feast upon whi h all human suffering
and privations even now celebrate their' fini
glorious termination. LiHache's grand Miss

dered by the choir. The altar was decorate
in the most beautiful manner, and with tb
great taste fir which the ladies of this enure
are celebrated. There weie Bolemn Vespers a

"Regina Coli Latave r and other choic
morceaux were sung.
At St. Patricks Church, High Mass wa
sung. The Rev. Dr. Moore officiated, ant
preached a solid and logical sermon, appro

At St. Joseph's Church, Anscn-street Higl
Mass was also celebrated and the Easter ser
mon preached by the pastor Rev. Mr. Crog
THE EPISCOPAL CH CUCHES.
A generous rivalry seemed to have spranc
up betweea the ladies of the several Episcopa
congregations in regard to the Easter adorn
ment of their churches, aud the sacred edifices
were indeed elaborately and'handsomely deco?
The Easter services at St. Michael's were ol
a peculiarly interesting character. The church
was beautifully decorated with wreaths and
festoons of cedar, interspersed with flowers,
and the chancel was spanned by an inscription
in large letters, "Christ is Risen." The large
chandelier which hangs from thc ceibos in the
middle [of the church was tastefully wreathed
with garlands, and, viewed from the gallery,
struck us as pecaliarly beautiful. The music,
which is always fine, was, on this festal occa?
sion of the cb arch, unusually impressive. All
the chants were new and were well rendered
by the choir. The rector, Rev. P. T. Eeith,
preached from Lake, xxiv., v. 34: "Tho Lord
is risen indeed." The sermon was devoted to
a disenssion of the mysteries of the Resarrec
tion in its adaptability to the varying wants of
humanity. The services closed with the ad?
ministration of the Holy Communion to a
large congregation, the rector being the cele?
St. Philips' was beautifully decorated.
Wreaths of cedar, with here and there a white
roes or hiv, were festooned from the gallery ;moss
baskets filled with natnral flowers were sas
pended below the wreaths, and all the columns
were twined with ivy and the bases wreathed
with cedar. The chancel and stained window
were pre-eminently beautiful, and speak well
for the taste of the ladies of tho congregation.
From the upper part of the window a wreath
hang in graceful festoons to the foot of the
tablet, and thence continued until it reached
the gallery. Below the wrsath the words
"Love's redeeming work is done" were arrang?
ed in the form of an arch, and below the arch
and partially surrounded by it was a cross of
white flowers and arborvitae. The pulpit,
reading desk and communion table were very
prettily ornamented with wreaths, and the
font was one mass of fragrant flowers. The
service was read by the Rev. Mr. Howe, and a
striking and eloquent sermon delivered by the
Rev. Mr. Miles from the following text: "Think
not that I come to send peace on earth; I come
to send not peace, but a sword." The subject
was treated in masterly style, audit was shown
tlint the Christian religion was not only t<
etrato whore it was received without 0]
tiou. but wa? to attack unbelief whereve
whenever it wa* to be found. The mus:

music was exceedingly fine, tho usual com
ment of the choir being doubled. The Te D
and Easter anthem were performed with
effect. The Rev. Mr. Drayton arrived at
conclusion of the services in time to adml
ter the sacrament.
St. Luke's was plainly, but very prettily
namented, the principal decoration be
around the chancel. Over the communion
ble was the inscription "Christ the Lor
risen to-day," neatly worked in cedar. '
"Love's redeeming work is done,
Fongbt the fight, the victory won,"
were likewise beautifully displayed bene
the cablets on the right and left of the la
window in the rear of the altar. On
latter, encl rcled in a handsome wreath,
the inscription "L H. S." The choir gal]
was ornamented with a pretty arch of ei
green, and over the main aisle was a wre
inscribed "Glory to God." For their sup
rendering of "Jubilate Deo," the choir dese
especial mention. The sermon by Rev. C.
Gadsden was an admirable one-one of
learned divine's best efforts. Text: 1 Pet
first chapter, third verse. In the afterm
the annual Sunday 8chool celebration t<

beautifully adorned with evergreens and fl(
ers. Tha service was read by the Rev.
Toomer Porter, who also preached from Ac
17th chapter, v. 18: "He preached unto th<
Jesus and the Resurrection." The congrei
tion was an unusually full one.
At St. Paul's Church, Radcliffeboro', I
decorations were simple yet exceedingly tas
ful, the Howers and evergreens being
wrought by the hand of nature. The o
tfoucre in the way of ornaments was a mar
column in the rear of the chancel entwic
with red an d white flowers, artistically plac
in a green wreath running from top to ba
the column being surmounted with an elal
rate leaf-cross. Tbe galleries and organ L
were festooued in green, and the font bloom
with white lilies. The music partook of t
character of the festival. The rector, I
Lord, performed the services. Tho sermi
was preached by the Rev. Dr. C. Hanckel, frc
la t Sc. Peter, 1,3 and 4, and portrayed the ma
nitude of the sacrifice our Lord had made f
mankind, and the completeness of his victo
over death and triumph over the grave.
THE HUGUENOT CHURCH.
Tho services at this church did not vary m
terially from those observed on ordinary oe c
sions. The music was, as usual, exquisit
Professor O'Neill presiding at the organ. Tl
sermon by Rev. Mr. Vedder was preached fro
the 22d Psalm, and part of the 26th vers
"They shall praise the Lord that soek Him."
Firet. said the speaker, to seek the Lord :
to humble ourselves before Him. It is prid
which bolds man in bondage and provokes th
Almighty wrath. Cbtiat himself taught th:
there must be death in cue's self before ther
could be life in the Lord. Secondly, to see
God is to submit ourselves unto Him. Ou
cry should be, "It is the Lord: let Him d
what seemeth good to Him." To oppose Hi
will is to dash our feeble strength against th
pillars of the universo. Submission involve
no humiliation, and it is the folly of huma
pride which thinks otherwise. The old phil
osophers taught that submission to fate wa
true wisdom; but Christianity teaches tha
there ia anall-pervading-providenoe, ben enc en
and wise, which enters into every even!
Thirdly, to 6erve tho Lord is to obev'Hia will
If loyalty to a government is demanded as th
first duty of a citizen, how much more is du
to the Author of all government. Obedienc
is the sacrifico which God requires. It is :
part of the praise we give to God; and in th
proportion that man seeks, submits and obey,
the Lord, ia the praise bestowed.
The reverend speaker enlarged upon and ap
plied these truths with his usual force, clear
ness and elegance of diction.
THE LUTHERAN CHURCHES.
The English Lutheran Church was very tasti
ly dressed, through the zeal of the ladies of thi
congregation. Above the pulpit on the wal
appeared in letters of box and myrtle the le
gend " Christ is risen," while lower down, oi
either side, were the words "Believe," "Ee
joico." Tho tablets of the commandments, th<
altar, the panels of the galleries and the col
umns were each adorned with garlands o
wreaths of evergreen relieved by white flowers,
whilo a handsome boquet bloomed over each
gas jet. The organ loft was decorated with a
harp in evergreen, inscribed with the motte
" Laus Deo." The services were performed in
the presence of a full congregation by the
venerable pastor, the Rev. Dr. Bachman, as?
sisted by the Rev. J. H. Honour. -The sermon
was preached by Dr. Bachman, who chose for
his text 1 Corinthians, chapter xv. v. 53.
The German Lutheran Church, on H?sel
street, was crowded long before the hour for
service. The pulpit was beautifully decorated
on all sides with garlands of evergreen and
wreaths of wild orange blossoms. Over the
entrance to the pulpit was a wreath of wild
flowers, with the inscription "Ehre sei Gott in
der Hohe." Li front of the pulpit was another
wreath, with the inscription "31st October,
1517," being the day when Luther nailed the
ninety-six Theses on the door of the Church of
Wittenburg. Tho galleries were likewise orna?
mented. In a circle around the altar were the
communicants-girls dressed in white and boys
m black-who participated in the Sacrament
for the first time. Tbe choir, under the leader?
ship of Prof. A. J. Hoffman, rendered the sol?
emn music of the church most effectively. The
sermon was preached by the pastor, tho Rev.
L. Muller, from the text to be found in 1 Co?
rinthians, chap. 15, verses 55, 5G, 57. Such
was the throng in the church that only about
one-third of the congregation could partake of
the Lord's Supper.
In the College Chapel an unusually larg c
congregation was present to listen to a dis?
course by Rev. E. T. Winkler. The text se?
lected for the occasion was from 1 Corinthians,
fourteenth chapter, fortieth verse: "Let alj
things be done decently and in order." The
design of the sermon was to show the order
prevalent in the early Christian churches. In
treating of his subject, the ordinances, cene
ral usages, and offices of tbe Apostolic Church
were described, and explained in the reverend
speaker's forcible and eloquent style.
In the First Baptist Church, in the after?
noon, the same divine preached, from the
tenth chapter of St. John, tenth verse: "I am
the door; by me, if any man enter, he shall be
saved." 'The object being to show the privi?
lege of church membership, and what we must
do in order to become the true members of
Christ's Church. The duty of faith in Christ,
conscientious obedience to His requirements)
and the imitation of His example were the
themes practically discussed.
lu the Circular Church, Kev. W. 0. Prentiss,
delivered an elaborate discourse from Hebrews,
chapter?, vc-rse 21. last clause, "Thou art a
priest forever after the order of Melchisedec."
He again preached in the afternoon, upon the
character of the Apostle Paul.
In the Second Presbyterian Church, the pas?
tor, the Kev. Dr. Smythe, preached an able
discourse upon the text, "He said, therefore,
a certain nobleman went into a far country to
receive for himself a kingdom and to return.
And he called bis ten servants and delivered
them ten pounds, and said unto them, occupy
till I come." No reference was made by the
pastor to the clir-racter of the day.
In the Trinity Church (Methodist Episcopal)
in Has?l-street, the Pastor, Eev. F. A. Mood,
preached a sermon from St. Matthew, chapter
28, v. 7: '-Tell His disciples He is risen." The
reverend speaker discoursed upon the pro?
priety of this season for its celebration; the
proofs relating to Christ's death; the facts and
evidence connected with Christ's burial and
resurrection; the lack of motive to remove the
body; the ease with which an imposition could
have been exposed, and finally the importance
of the doctrine as the corner-stone of faith.
At the Bethel Church a large congregation
assembled to hear their favorite pastor, Rev.
John T. Wightman, who likewise referred,
in an eloquent sermon, to the character of the
day, its associations and lessons.
His text was the 24th chapter of SI. Luke,
34th verse: "The Lord is risen indeed." The
necessity of the resurrection of Christ being
firmly established upon an unshaken basis,
upon this fact hangs the whole Christian be?
lief and hope of immortality; upon it rests the
external evidence of the Christian religion.
This is the great central truth of the gospel,
around which all the others cluster, and to
which they yield their glory. Enlarging upon
this theme, the eloquent divine opened proof
upon proof illustrative of his text, and for an
hour held his audience spell-bound.
In the evening Rev. Mr. Mood preached a
sermon before the Young Men's Christian As?
sociation, at the Central Presbyterian Church,
on Meeting-street. His text being Revela?
tions, chapter 3, verse 5: "He that overcom
eth, the same eball be clothed in white rai?
ment." A large congregation was in attend?
ance, and the singing, under the leadership of
Professor Ruddock, was fine;

lu the card published on Saturday, I con?
fined myself to the action ot the meeting in
Columbia. In taking leave, however, of the
public, as Attorney-General, a fte:- a service of
near twenty years, 1 desire to say a word as to
the office, and the more ?o because I consider
myself the last of the Attorney-Generals of
Sonth Carolina. I mean of the old white maha
South Carolina-one of the original "Thirteen"
-the South Carolina which gave to the
"Revolution" her Rutlodges and Pinckneys,
and to the crisis preceding the "second War
of Independence" her Lowndes, Cheves and
Calhoun; which has contributed to the coun?
sels of the country since her McDuffie, Hayne,
Preston and Legare-of that South Carolina I
am the last Attorney-General.
Heretofore the office has been, in this State,
as in England, one of the prizes of the profes?
sion, to be attained only after long and ardu?
ous service. The Attorney General is the ac?
knowledged head of the Bar, and the Bar have
jealously guarded the position.
The office, since the Revolution, has been
filled-first, by John Julius Pringle, a learned
lawyer, of large experience with a very lucra?
tive and multifarious private practice; second,
Langdon Cheves, darum et venerabi'.e nomen,
a giant among giants, with the very largest
private practice ever known in this State; third,
John S. Richardson, eminently eloquent and
successful as a barrister, for very many years
a judge in our highest court; fourth, Robert Y.
Hayne, who, between the age of twenty-one and
thirty, began and finished a brilliant profession?
al career, which gave him fortune enough to
enable him to devote twelve years to poli?
tics; fifth, James L. Pe tig ra, his very name
a synonym for learning, eloquence and force
as a lawyer ; sixth, Hugh Swinton Legare, a
" polished corner of the temple," as profound
as he was brilliant, and equally the scholar
and the lawyer ; seventh, R. Barnwell Rhett,
who, after a very brief term of office, was trans?
lated to the Halls of Congress, and who has
run a career since! which has made his name
familiar from Canada to the Gulf ; eighth,
Henry Bailey, who, as a lawyer, was a flt com?
peer of his distinguished predecessors. For
myself, I will only say thi.t, when eleoted At?
torney-General, I had been sixteen years a
practicing lawyer, and hava since been elected
by Ave different Legis ta.ur es to this high office.
So ends the roll of the Attorney-Generals of
old South Carolina.
How begins the new? Who is Mr. Cham?
berlain? It may be that he is a gentleman, a
scholar, and, for aught I know, learned in the
law. But is he a citizen cf the State, and if so,
how long? Is he a member of her bar? Ia he
a member of any bar at all? How long has he
practiced the profession of the law?
I mean nothing psrsonc.1 towards Mr. Cham?
berlain. But so far as ia known to the voters of
South Carolina, he is a citizen of Massachu?
setts, who has come into South/Carolina since
the war and settled down as a planter on Wad
malaw Island. Whether he is a lawyer at all
or not is not known to the voters.
But to this, too, we must submit as a subju?
gated people, and, so lor as the bar is con?
cerned, it is not the leant of our humiliations
in the passage of power from the white maa to
the negro. Vite ! ISAAC W. HAYNE,
Attorney-General of South Carolina.
April 13th, 1868.
" Society "-A Query.
To ths Editors of the Daily News :
GENTLEMEN : On the 9th instant, I addressed
to the Mercury the following letter, under my
name: "Although a resident of Charleston for
" many years, I have to confess that I have
" never been able to exactly understand what
" ia meant here by the term "Society." I no tic
" ed in your issue of the 8th instant, that you
" have repeated and emphasized the term So
" ciety, in a controversy with " Carl Benson,"
" and I take this opportunity to beg you to
"tell your readers what you mean by the
" term Society. Is Society here in Charles
" ton merely a set or coterie of a few preju
" diced individuals who associate together to
" the exclusion of all others, and who assume
" to be Hie society ? Or is Society here like
" that in all other cities, the ensemble of per
" sons most noted for heir education and the
" poliah of their manners."
That letter, as yon see, had not for its ob?
ject any justification of "Carl Benson's" criti?
cism of our social manners and prononciation,
but to obtain from the Mercury their ideas of
what constitutes Society in Charleston. So
many different ideas (and of course some of
them must be erroneous) prevail here, that I
deem it a great favor to tho public if some one,
speaking by authority, will settle this vexed
question. But the Mercury has not seen flt to
notice my queries anti enlighten the public,
doubtless deeming tho vulgarity of my name,
and consequent low origin, a sufficient reason
for ignoring my communication. I, therefore,
am forced to solicit th s information from you.
Will you please deans this term society, and
Yours respectfully, J. SMITH.
