THE SISTERS OF MERCY in charge of the
.Catholic Male Orphan Asylum tender their
thanks to Mr. E. F. Sweegan for the donation of
the stove which was raffled at Messrs. Cameron
.& Barkley's on Saturday last. The Sisters also
gratefully acknowledge the receipt of one piece
of cloth from Mr. Charles Baker, of Philadel?
phia, for clothing for the orphan boys.
DECORATING THE GRAVES.-The ladies of j
Savannah and Columbus, and other Georgia
cities, are making arrangements for the decora- j
toa of the graves of the Confederate soldiers
in the cemeteries of those cities. As the date
on which this ceremony is usually performed
.April 26-falls this year on Sunday, some dis?
cussion has arisen as to whether its observ?
ance should be postponed.
A CITY BAKEHOUSE.-The proposition has
-been made before the City Council to establish
a city bakehouse for the benefit of the several
institutions dependent upon the public funds.
The idea . is unquestionably a good one. The
culinary department should be subject to as
much system as any other department, and
.under a superintendent rightly administer?
ing its affairs, the saving to the city would be
quickly appreciated. Every housewife knows
the difference in" her favor between the bread
she makes and that which she buys; and the
.same principle applied on the gi ander scale
required by the public institutions, would
doubtless verify individual experience.
AN OLD ROOKERY DESTROYED.-Among the
many improvements inaugurated under the
.new regime, not the least gratifying is the de?
molition pf sundry old buildings which have
for years been in a toppling condition. One of
-these in Montague-street, near Coming, was
yesterday demolished. For some time past it
had leaned toward the street in a dangerous
manner, and passers-by were compelled to
make a wide detour to avoid the risk of an ac?
cident. It was long used as a meeting-house j
by the colored people, but was abandoned on
account of its insecurity. It is now level with j
the ground, and if the same process were ap
plied to the adjoining buildings, the neighbor- j
hood would be decidedly improved. j
THE STORM.-Our "Walhalla correspondent
says: "The county has been visited by --?ne of
i ne severest rains that has been experienced
for many years. All the bridges have been
washed away, and some crops ruined. It is
now raining again."
Our Hamburg correspondent writes : "Last
Thursday and Friday we bad a slight freshet,
which did some damage to plantations in the
country and to gardens in that town. Some
houses were surrounded by water, which pre- j
vented the inmates from leaving them. The
highest point reached by the water at the
* Augusta Bridge was twenty nine and a half
.feet. On Saturday the river fell to nineteen
.and a half feet, at which point it now stands."

A TAIL OF BLOOD.-We learn that while one
of the street care was passing by the market
yesterday, it ran over somebody's ''Old dog
Tray." A crowd immediately assembled (who
ever saw an apple-stand knocked over in
Charleston without gathering a multitude?),
and speculations were rife a8 to the name, iden?
tity a-id pedigree of the suffering cur. One
person of an economical turn of mind wondered
whether the tax on his dorg-ship bad baen
paid, and if not, suggested that the city rail?
road should pay the same into the municipal
coffers. In the midst of all this discussion, a
drayman seized the mangled remains, which
had just life enough left in them to feebly wag
their ensanguined caudal extremity, and hus?
tled them upon bis cart; whereupon an un?
charitable freedman observed, with a knowing
look at the drayman, " De nex time yer hear
ob dat dog, jes' whistle right loud somewhere
down in de market, and if yer don't see a bunch
ob sassengers go wiggle-waggle, dis chile don't
know de man who dribe dat keert. Ee-yah !
FIB ST S HIP HE M FBOM THE ASHLEI PHOS?
PHATE BEDS.-The first shipment of phosphate
from the companys works, on Ashley River,
was made yesterday by the schooners T. G.
Smith and Anna Barton, which cleared from
this port, carrying 800 tone. The headquar?
ters of the company are at Ashley Ferry and
Maryville, two plantations on the Ashley, and
generally considered to be the centre of the
basin which contains the marl. The arrange?
ments for the largest development of the re
Bonrces of tho locality are being rapidly per?
fected. Two large steam washers, of forty
horse power, are in process of construction,
and when completed, they will enable those
working the beds to turn out, it may be said,
almost unlimited quantities of the phosphate.
This department of labor is under the control
of Mr. Nicholas, the agent of the patentee.
These "marl beds" have evidently become
quite an object of curiosity. Hundreds of
Northern tourists have visited the spot, and
nearly every week a score or more of new
faces arrive for the purpose of "looking

How to Plant Successfully.
To the Editors of the Haily News :
Facts are stubborn things, which cannot be
denied nor alterered, and the sooner sensible
men come to this conclusion and wake up to a
proper sense of their present situation, the
better it will be for them and the prosperity of
Slavery has been abolished, and with it, in a
great measure, the old system of agriculture.
Hereafter planting or farming must be con?
ducted on a much smaller scale, and it will re?
quire, and must receive, strict personal atten?
tion, if success is desired or looked for. Land
bas boon made to produce very large crops by 1
careful personal attention, a wise system of |
thorough under-draining, deep ploughing, a
bountiful supply of fertilizers, with proper
cultivation. That which bas been done by
some men can be done by others, and to be
successful, all these matters mast be strictly
attended to, and if properly done, the business
can be made profitable, tho land permanently
improved and greatly enhanced in valuo.
It is gratifying to know that there are some
few Southern farmers who are alive to the pre?
sent condition of affairs, and arc governing
themselves accordingly. They plant less land,
and in many instance3 more than double thc
crops formerly made are realized. The March
number of the Southern Cultivator, published
m Athens, Ga., coutains an account of an ex?
periment on sixteen acres of land, by David
Dickson, of Sparta, Hancock county. Ga., on
which he raised last year two good bags of
clean cotton to the acre. On one portion he
raised at the rate of G000 pounds, and on anoth?
er, the next best, 5000 pounds seed cotton to
th3 acre. Such results came from proper at?
tention, good management, and a liberal use of j
Stir your land well by deep ploughing, use
fertilizers abundantly, drain the land freely
all these matters properly attended to, will
make the land fruitful and the situation heal?

WHOLESALE GBOCEBS IN BALTTMOBE-Those
of our merchants who may desire to purchase
their groceries or provisions in Baltimore, or
to establish a commission business there, will
find our advertisers, Messrs. Griffin. Brother
& Co., No. 105 Lombard-street, happy to sup?
ply their wants, and transact business on the
most liberal terms.
SADDLERY AND COACH MATERIALS.-Measr?.
Edw. Jenkins & Sons are importers and deal?
ers in saddlery and coach materials, at No. 180
Baltimore-street, Baltimore. Md. There are
many dealers in tb ese articles throughout the
State who would prefer to supply themselves
with the same from a Baltimore house, and at
the advantageous prices which Baltimore can
ofier. We therefore take pleasure in calling
the attention of the trade to this firm.
CANNED FEESEBVXS, MEATS, FISH, OYSTERS
AND PICKLES.- Numsen, Carroll & Co., of No.
18 Light-street, Baltimore, are already largely
and favorably known to our merchants as the
grand tycoons among the "preservers of their
country." There ie scarcely an establishment
in the country which does not contain upon its
shelves more or lesa of their preparations, and
we believe that the universal verdict ia that
they are durable and good.
The finn are likewise joint proprietors and
eole agents for Borden's Condensed Milk, with?
out which & cup of coffee is nowhere, and a
nursing baby the mos: wretched being in exis?
tence. We hope our merchants will continue
to supply themselves with the classes of goods
above named from this source, and feel well
assured that the evidence of the past ia a suffi?
cient guarantv of the future.
READY-MADE CLOTHTNO FOR THE SOMHEB,
Messrs. Macullar, Williams & Parker announce
in our columns to-day, the opening of a stock
of summer clothing at prices which place a
summer suit within the reach of all. The ad?
vantages of buying goods from this firm are :
1. That you can purchase nothing under the
misrepresentation of clerks. The reputation
of the house forbids it. 2. That the clothing
ia made in a substantial, durable and fashion?
able style by their own employees; the work
being fully equal to any done at a merchant
tailor's. 8. That their stock consists entirely
of new gooda, made expressly for the coming
season, and owing to its large variety and ad?
mirable arrangement, as well as the skill and ex?
perience of the salesmen, a good fit can readily be
obtained; and 4. That the prices of the goods are
marked down to a figure from which neither
love nor money will cause a deviation. We cor?
dially commend Mesara. Messrs. Macullar, Wil?
hams & Parker to the public, and ask for their
attractive catalogue careful examination.
NOTICES IN BANKRUPTCY.-Meetinga of the

Board, of Flreniasters.
At a meeting of the Board, held on the 15th mst,
the following preamble sud resolutions were adopted :
When those who have reached their season of pro?
bation are gathered to their fathers, it is an event in
the history of man which makps but h ttl o imp-es'
sion. But when a man in the prime of life, ic the
midst of his hopes, is suddenly cut down, surround?
ed by all the endearments ot domestic Ute, with the
prospect of great public usefulness before bim, it is
an event which strikes deep into the human heart.
It teaches us painfully the uncertainty of life.
SAMUEL GILMAN COURTENAY, whom the Fire
Department has ever regarded as an embodiment of |
its repressntative spirit, is no more. Death has gath,
ered manhood in all its vigor. Here truly he has
been the King of Terrors, strewing his pathway with
mourning. Sudden and unexpected was thy visita?
tion, O Death. But alas!
"We know when moons shall wane,
When summer birds from far shall cross the sea,
When autumn's hue shall tinge the golden gram.
But who shall teach us when to look for thee."
In the Fire Department, the death of our friend is
Indeed lamented. They mourn the premature de?
cease of one whose zeal for their welfare never fal?
tered, and whose devotedness to their best Interest j
can never be forgot'.en. Of him lt may be truly said,
that all of the energies of his manhood were dedi?
cated to tho service of his fellow-citizens. Identified
with our Department from his early youth, it waa
his practice to perform, in varied capacities, its ar
duous duties wimcheerfulness. As President of one
of its time-honored and efficient companies, and as
Chief of the Department, he exhibited a knowledge,
character and zeal which enhanced their welfare.
Urged by an honorable ambition, whose light was
dimmed by no sordid ray of envy, he was ever cour?
teous, kind, and considerate of the feelings of others.
Wo admired him as the polished gentlcmaa; a
prompt compliance with the requisites of ussge and
decorum ever dignified his deportment. Vi e valued
him as a competent, zealous officer. We esteemed
him as a niead, for we knew him well.
We cannot enter that sacred home, where he was
more sincerely cheri=hed and Ids loss will be more
lecnly felt. It was there that his character shoue
