AN INTERESTING OCCASION_Wo print in
another column a letter from Baltimore, giv?
ing an account of the trial trip of the new
isteamer Maryland, of the Baltimore and
Charleston Line, together with a much more
accurate and complete description of that fine
vessel than any that has yet been published.
The Baltimore Sun of Tuesday, in its report of
the a Hair, says :
On the trip yesterday there were a number of
merchants of the city present, together with
representatives from Charleston, among whom
were Mr. F. W. Dawson, proprietor of the
CHARLESTON DAELY NEWS, aud Mr. Griffin, of
the Charleston Mercury. A pleasant enter?
tainment invoked short addresses from the
parties prosent, in which mutual congratula?
tions as to the prospect of the trade between
Baltimore and Charleston wore made. To a
toast complimentary, Mr. Dawson reph'ed in
. eloquent and feehng remarks towards Mary?
land, and Baltimore particularly, regarding
not onlv the expressed, but the active sym?
pathy of our citizens with tho whole South,
concluding with the toast, "Maryland-God
bless her." Various other sentiments were
given and briefly responded to.
POLICE ITEMS.-A colored boy, ono of tho
employees of a barbershop, while easing a
customer of his coat, took advantage of .he
opportunity to abstract his money, and
sequestered about twenty dollars. He was
arrested ana sent to jail to await his trial.
A colored man, who was caught stealing the
wooden platforms before the carriage ways,
was lodged in the same stronghold.
A crippled soldier, who came to town osten?
sibly for the purpose of getting an artificial
leg, pawned a fine gold watch for one dollar.
Thc circumstance became known, and the
watch was detained at the detective office. Ko
owner appeared, and it was subsequently re?
stored to the soldier. He then pawned it to a
conductor of the Street Railroad for fifty cents.
A newly-formed acquaintance of the soldier
learnt this fact, and redeemed the watch, but,
instead of returning it to the owner, took it
to a jewellers and traded it for a silver watch
and thirty dollars. He then tried to leave tho
city, but the soldier heard of the proceeding,
and had him arrested at the depot. The case j
has been referred to the authorities, and it
will now be ascertained who is the rightful
owner of the watch in question. j

DEATH OF A Nm VE CAROLINIAN TN NEW
YOBK_The Geneva (N. Y.) Gazette, of the
lUth inst., announces the death from paralysis,
at his residence in that place, of Robert Barn?
well Cuthbert, a native of Beaufort, S. C., in
his seventy-seventh year. The Gazette says :
He graduated at Columbia College, and then
went to Philadelphia, where ho was associated
as a student with tho famous Dr. Physic in
titting himself for tho profession of medicine.
After taking his degree he settled in his native
town as a planter, but carried on, at the same
time, the practice of his profession. Soon,
however, ho met with a serious accident which
crippled him for life, and changed tho course
of bis future career. In 1819 he was marriod
in Charleston, S. C., to Gertrude V. Van Ben
scoten, whom ho leaves to mourn his loss after
a half century of happy companionship. Soon
after his marriage he removed from the South,
and settled first at Bloomiugdale, near New
York city, aud afterwards in tho city itself.
Finally, in 1852, he removed to Geueva, where,
in our midst, he spent the remainder ot his
days. Of kind and genial reeliugs, always
courteous in his manners, the thorough
gentleman by ns.ture as well as by education,
during his residence here he came tu be uni?
versally regarded with respect and esteem.

THE GERMANS AND THE RADICALS.-The
Charlc8toner Zeitung, of Wednesday, contains
the following item, apropos of the times: "As
we were standing at our door on the evening of
the last election day, we overheard a dialogue
between two darkies, who had that day for
the first timo exercised their rights as sove?
reigns : De Germans is de wuss enemy we's
got.' We were not in the humor, just then, to
correct their error. The German, however, is
far from being tho onemy of the negro. ?Ho is
perfectly willing to let him have everything
which is rightfully his; but he is not inclined
to put himself on a level with the colored man;
and the fresh-bakc? 'brother' will find, before
he is many days older, that even his dear Yan?
kee friond keeps one little corner of his heart,
to which access is denied to the negro."

GERMAN INDUSTRY AND THRIFT.-From the
Charleatoner Zeitung of thie week we translate
the following interesting item : "On a previ?
ous occasion we mentioned that the German
population of Charleston, at the utmost, does
not exceed 8000 souls. Their property is osti?
ni ated at $5,000,000, or an average of nearly
$1900 to each individual. If there is a German
population in any other city in America which
can compare with this, we are not acquainted
with it. At the recent sale of the securities
of the Charleston Savings Institution, the
Germans purchased stocks and bonds to tho
amount of $99,760 (face value.")
The foregoing furnishes a suggestive text ;
and we propose, not to give a full sermon, but
merely a few "heads," hoping that our readers
will elaborate them at their leisure.
Why is it that the Germans generally prosper
and "get on?" Why are so few of them pau?
pers, criminals, or even menials? Because
they accept, "in good faith," the primordial
decree, "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou
eat bread." They are brought up to work.
They are, as a class, intelligent, educated, in?
dustrious, frugal, energetic and enterprising.
They are honest, patriotic and liberal. The
German works early and late, not for riches,
but for the "glorious privilege of being inde?
pendent." He despise th not the day of small
things. From his cradle he is taught that
"Viele Kornlein machen einen Haufen"-many
a mickle makes a mackie. What he makes he
saves. He is not ashamed to commence in a
small way. He lays by a few dollars; then sets
up for himself-it may be as a shopkeeper, as
a baker, a tailor, a shoemaker, or any other re?
spectable calling. His whole stock in trade
may not amount to as large a sum as the "fix?
tures" would cost in tho case of the beginner
of any other nation. We said above that he
works for independence; but in this wo do not
wish to be misunderstood. He does not think
it necessary to independence to cease work im
mediately upon becoming his own master. Far
from it. If he worked hard before, now ho
works etill harder. Not only ho himself, but his
wife assists him, and so do bis children; and
the reward is seldom wanting. With the meri?
dian of life, often long before, come ease,
wealth, and, if throe be a tasto for it, luxury
Uuderlying the whole German mode of Ufe,
we discern the stern apostolical admonition,
that they who do not work shall not eat. No
one is considered entitled to wealth, rank or
honor, save only as he has earned these
by personal exertion. This at least is good
German doctrine in the United States.

CHARLESTON, April 23,1868.
To thc Editors of the News :
Allow me to call attention through the col
mnne of your paper, to the great facilities and
cheap rates of freight and passage now offered
between this city, Baltimore, Philadelphia and
New York, and especially between Baltimore
Arrangements aro now in full operation by the
several railway lines by which goods can leave
Kew York daily about 6 o'clock P. M., hom
Pier No. 1 North Uiver, by steamer to Amboy,
thence in the same cars to Crisneld on the
Chesapeake Bay, then by steam ferry to Ports?
mouth, and in same cars to Wilmington, North
Carolina, thence in the same cars to Charleston,
eight hundred miles in less than sixty houis;
and thus every day in the week except Sunday.
From Philadelphia the time is ten hours let's.
From Baltimore goods leaving at 4 P. AI.,
reach Wilmington in thirty-six hours and
Charleston in forty-eight hours.
The charge frcm New York on dry goods
(fii-at class) is $1 65 per 100 pounds; from Phila?
delphia to Cb ar le Eton charge on drv goods
(first class) is $1 35 per 100 pounds, and from
Baltimore to Charleston the rate on the same
class of goods is $110 per 100 pounds. On the
other three classes the rates are proportion?
ately less, and these rates cover the risk as
"common carrier' all the way. No insurance
needed, as the whole Une is jointly responsible
for the goods.
Now, let us see how the cost on valuable
goods compare with steamers' rates: First
class goods are valued at an average of $2 to
the 100 pounds; second class goods ab about
$1 to the 100 pounds. Insurance to this port
from either of the cities referred to is not less
than one per cent. Now, it will not take our
merchants a very long time to discover that
they are paying one or two dollars per 100
pounds, by way of insurance, in addition to
the sea freight (75 cents to SI per 100 pounds),
when SI 10, $1 35 or $165 per 100 pounds will
pay charges and risk from Baltimore, Phila?
delphia or New York to Charleston on first
class goods, and twenty per cent less on second
class, and other classes still lower.
First class passage to New York $26, Phila?
delphia $24, and Baltimore $22.
Further information on the subject referred
to above can be obtained at the office of the
Northeastern Railroad Company.
