Monet! Money! Monet I-We sympathize
heartily with the proposition that has been
made, that the money which has accrued from
the recent Bale of the Charleston Savings In
.stitution should be divided among the deposi
tors of that company. We regard it as a posi
tive injury to the finances of the city to lock
up so large an amount in a bank which dare
not use one penny of it, lest a sudden call be
made for its redemption. We have no doubt
that ere this the treasurer of the institution
has made an approximate estimate of the
amount due each depositor and a per
centage of this issued to each depositor would
greatly tend to relieve the existing financial
yi pressure, besides opening new channels for
future investment. We have heard that the
amount realized from the sale is not much less
than frtm thirty-two to thirty-five per cent of
the original deposit. A payment of ten or fif
teen per cent, would be a great help to the
-community, and we earnestly invite the atten
tion of Master Tupper to the importance of
the subject, the feasibility of the plan, and the
public benefit which he has it in his power to

A Desperate Encounteb in North Cabo
una.?Information has been received by tele
graph from- North Carolina that on Sunday
last a_ desperate encounter occurred in Pitt
-County, of that State, wherein two persons
were killed and two badly wounded. It appears
that a desperado named Carney or Kearney,
who, for many months, has evaded the civil
officers of the law when they sought to arrest
him for the varions crimes which he had com
mitted, was finally tracked to his lair by a
United States officer and a squad of soldiers.
Evidently determined not to be taken alive,
Carney, with his son and son-in-law, blockaded
themselves in their house, and refused all
summons to surrender. On attempting to
break into the premises, the military posse
were fired upon; one of their number was kill
ed, and the officer commanding the squad
wounded. The fire was returned, and the
desperado and his son-in-law killed, and the
BOS badly wounded.
These are the only particulars of the affair
vet received. The event will no doubt be ex
aggerated, and made to appear at the North as
an indication of the rebellious spirit of North
Carolina. NBut we are assured that the arrest
was attempted only for the reasons above stat
ed?namely, '?Lhat Carney was the terror of the
neighborhood, and could nrjibe secured by the

THE PALMETTO WTNS THE CUP.
At the conclusion o: the contest on Monday,
the playing had not been completed, ind the
Marion, Washington and Young America were
to have tried their prowess yesterday. As the
Washington will shortly visit Savannah, and
the engine being in complete trim, it was
thought best to withdraw, the day being ex
I tremely wet and disagreeable, "id the distance
made by the Palmetto very hard to beat. The
Marion and YounR America were, therefore,
the only contestants, and. in spite of the heavy
rain, proceeded to the ground about 4 P. M.,
aud took their stations, the Marion leading off.
Notwithstanding wet and rain, the enthusiasm
that a display of this description has always
produced could not be dampened, and the plat
form was lined with umbrella-clad individuals,
who seemed to think a superfluity of water
one of the greatest enjoyments of life.
The windows in the neighboring houses
were also crowded with spectators, while the
firemen took the rain with the spirit of young
ducks. The courthouse and the porch of the
guardhouse had each their full quota of drip
ping mortals. A head wind and the dense at
mosphere prevented the streams from being
sent to any great distance. The Marion played
two hundred and four feet five inches, and tbe
Young America two hundred and fifteen feet
six and three-quarter inches. After the playing
was concluded and the distances measured, it
was seen that the Palmetto was again the
actor and would carry off the cup. This fact
was no sooner ascertained than a rush was
made for the guardhouse porch, which was
soon crowded with a steaming, motley mass of
humanity. The little darkeys climbed to the
windows, and clinging to the bars obtained
a birdseye view of the scene, but the less
fortunate reporters were compelled to en
dure the crush and confusion of the crowd.
A passage having been cleared, Alderman Wil
lis, who acted throughout as one of the judges,
awarded the silver cup to Mr. Hugh Ferguson,
President of the Palmetto. The usual con
gratulatory and responsive speeches were
made, after which the crowd slowly dispersed.
The drag ropes were manned, and the engines
and their moist attendants moved homewards.
Below we give the playing of the different
steamers this year and also that of the last an

THE ACCEDENT TO THE PHCENfX.
We have already alluded to the dam
age done this engine on the day oi the
parade. The engine had practice 1 on the
23d and hid thrown a solid stream of
water two hundred and thirty feet; another
trial was not deemed necessary before the
parade. After that event, on returning to
the house, it was discovered that some
one had been tampering with the bolts in the
lower part of the pump, the nuts being loosen
ed and marks of a chisel discovered. It was
found necessary to have this portion of the
machinery recast, and it was removed yester
day, and will be sent to the makers, Jeffers &
I Co, New York. While this is being repaired,
the company have obtained the loan of the
old Stonewall engine and will not remain inac
tive in case their services should be required
at a fire.
Last night the Palmettoes, who were the re
cipients of tbe prize awarded to steamers, gave
a collation, to which their equally successful
neighbors, the Vigilants, were invited. A few
hours were passed very pleasantly in the inter- j
change of firemen's hospitalities, and the even
ing was enlivened by song and sentiment, in
terspersed with a few speeches from modest
orators. Among the invited guests were Major
Willis, the judge of the contest, and delegations
from various fire companies.

ENDING APflTL 15, 1863.
The ladies in charge of the "Home," believ
ing the public to be interested in their mission
of love and merer, would lay before those who
have so kiudly aided in this charity a brief
statement of what has been accomplished for
the welfare of its inmates. The "Home" has
been in operation for six months-, and numbers
sixty occupants. Here these destitute ladies
and children, some of whom haye been re
duced from affluence to poverty by the misfor
tunes of war. find a comfortable shelter and a
pleasant home. In the seclusion of her apart
ment, each mother can cany on the work of
training her children with the same privacy
and care thai she could in her own home; and
the children can still enjoy the privileges and
pleasures of the domestic circle.
Three times a week soups are supplied in this
institution ; and from time to time such pro
visions as have been sent by friends, have been
distributed among the inmates, and most grate
A school numbering over fifty children, and
constantly increasing, gathered from the fami
lies in the "Home," and from those unable to
secure education elsewhere, has been organ
ized and is gratuitously taught by young ladies
of refinement and culture. The progress of
the children in acquiring knowledge has already
been such as to reward and stimulate their dis
The large and commodious building rented
by the Board of Control affording the facilities,
it is proposed, as speedily as possible, to admit
a limited number of girls?daughters of Con
federate soldiers?who have been impoverished
by the war, and to afford them a home in order
to secure them the means of a thorough edu
cation. They will be placed under the super
vision of a discreet and experienced lady as
Matron. For the means of their 3ducation and
board, however, the Board of Control makes
earnest appeal to the liberal and benevolent.
Tuition for them can be obtained at some of
the best schools in the City of Charleston at
one-half the usual rates; and the zeal and.
determination of the young ladies to secure
the means of self-support will, doubtless, en
sure double the ordinary progress towards
that coveted result.
Fortunately, the spacious premises occupied
as the "Home" have afforded shelter to per
sons in need who do not come within the exact
letter of the purposes of the institution, but
who have gladly availed themselves of the
privilege of occupying rooms in the building,
which were not immediately required by those
for whom they were originally designed. The
eagerness with which ladies have availed them
selves of even a temporary shelter, which they
covenanted cheerfully to resign so soon as it
should be needed by those having a prior
claim, does but indicate the extremity to which
we ore reduced, the patient magnanimity with
which it is borne, and the timeliness of evon
the least effort and prayer for its relief.
While thanking most gratefully all who have
assisted us in this undertaking, we earnestly en
treat them not to relax their generous endea
vors on behalf of the "Home." There are
many wants of its inmates which we are unable
to supply; and we feel that our work is incom
plete until we pour out the full measure of
comfort upon those whose protectors yielded
up their Uvea in defence of their homes and
ours. We fully realize the vast importance of
our undertaking?its grave responsibility. We
know our work to be a noble one?to comfort
the widow and the fatherless, and to shelter
I the homeless. Therefore, with an abiding
faith in the kindness of our people, and a con
fident trust in the benevolent promptings of
humanity, we earnestly commend the Home
to the liberal and the philanthropic everywhere.

A Welcome feom Savannah k Advance?
The Savannah Republican, alluding to the
promised visit of the VigUant and Washington
Fire Companies of this city, says:
We can assure not only tho "Vigilants," but
every other firemen's organization that may
honor our city with a visit on the first of May,
that no pains will be spared to render their
stay as pleasant and profitable as geuuine South
ern hospitality and the bond of undying friend
ship that exists between the two cities can
niolcc it. It is the intention of our gallant
firemen, whose reputation for generosity and
true magnanimity of character as civilians has
onlv been equalled by their undaunted he
roism in battle as soldiers, to pay such homage
to their distinguished guests as will befit the
important occasion, and if the original pro
gramme is carried out, we have no doubt it
will be the moans of filling tho minds of all
who may accept their hospitalities cn the 1st of
May with delightful reminiscences of Savan
nah and exalted opinions of her protectors? our
brave firemen. Should the woather prove aus
picious, the arrangements that have already
been made, with others that are uow being rap
idly perfected, warrant us in stating that the
displav will bo one of the finest and most ex
tensive ever witnessed south of Baltimore. We
nresutne our Charleston neighbors are too well
aware of the character of our fhemen to re
quire laudatorv notice of them at our hands;
hence we shall content ourselves by stating
that thev will, with the hearty co-operation of
our best citizens, make this demonstration one
not onlv worthv in evervrespect of the unsullied
reputation of the Savannah Fire Department,
but such an ovation as will redound to the
credit of the "Forest City" of the "Empire
State of the South."
Tho snbject of creating an ample commer
cial thoroughfare, parallel to the entire extent
of wharfage on Cooper Eiver, has for a consid
erable time past been under consideration, and
the need of such a thoroughfare has been sen
sibly felt by many of our merchants.
From tho Southern wharves at East Bay Bat
tery to Market-street, East Bay-street averages
seventy feot in width,is quite direct in its course,
is parallel and contiguous to the wharfage, and
fulfils all the conditions needed for the above
purpose. But northward, from Market to Cal
houu-streets, East Bay-street is crooked,
scarcely exceeding fifty feet in width, in many
places being as narrow as twenty-Beven to
thirty-four feet, and is therefore to the north
of Market-straet unfit for the purposes of a
mercantile thoroughfare. It has consequently
been thought necessary either to improve East
Bay-street from Market-street northward, or
to provide a new and proper channel to con
nect with East Bay-street at or near the New
A careful csnsideration of the subject will
render the advantages of the latter course ap
parent. Practically speaking, it is not possible
to snaighten East Bay-street, from Market to
CallJJun, and to make it even fifty feet in width,
and with its present location, would be attend
ed with considerable expense, by reason of val
uable buildings which would require removal.
By inspection of the city map, it will be seen
that by departing from East Bay-street, in the
neighborhood of the market, with a slight
angle westward, a route seventy feet in width
can be obtained, which would meet Washing
ton-street at Society-street continued, and
would, to all practical purposes, be a direct
prolongation of Washington-street, which, in a
straight line, now runs from Society to Calhonn
street. From East Bay to Society-street this
new street would, for the most part, run over
private property. However, only five or six
buildings would require removal; none of
them being of great value, and indeed all but
one being of an inferior class, involving in
themselves thereby very slight expense, and
leaving otherwise only the ground occupied to
Thus, at a minimum of cost, an ample
thoroughfare, very nearly straight, would be
opened from the Southern wharves to Cal
houn-street, and the great object bo essential
to a commercial seaport be attained. From
Calhoun-street Washington-street continues,
with a Blight deflection of a few degrees, to the
Northeastern Bailroad Depot, at the eastern
end of Chapel-street. When the proposed ex
tensions are completed, a broad route will be
formed admirably suited for the cotton travel,
as it will extend from the Bailroad Depot to
Colonel E. B. White is now engaged in mak
ing an instrumental examination, and hopes in
a few days to make an official report on the
entire subject to his Honor the Mayor. The
City Engineer, Mr. Louis J. Barhot, has been
for some time engaged in making the survey
of the shell road, and the services of Colonel
White were fortunately secured for the survey
of the new thoroughfare. Some years since
Colonel White, in connection with Mr. Parker,
surveyed Washington-street to the then con
templated extension of Society-street east
ward, and his knowledge of the route has been
of gieat assistance in the present survey. To
Colonel Cogswell, the present Mayor, ia due
the credit of inaugurating the shell road and
the extension of Washington Avenue.
The Caldeb House.?Since Madame Gidiere
has assumed charge of this hotel, formerly so
well known as the "Planter's," it bas grown
wonderfully in favor, as well with the transient
public as with the large class of persons who
desire first-class private hoard at moderate
rates in a quiet neighbornood, and yet in close
proximity to the business portions of Broad
street and the Bay. The estimable hostess
has entirely refurnished the house in neat and
comfortable style; the servants are attentive
and well trained, and the table d'hote is pro
vided with an abundance and elegance that
fully sustains the reputation in that respect
which Madame Gidiere acquired when in charge
of the Mansion House. The rates are adapted
to the times and to the changed fortunes of
our people, and, under its present manage
ment, the Calder House bids fair to become
one of the institutions of Charleston.

To the Editors of the JSfetet .
In the name of all the housekeepers of
Charleston, why must the market be closed at
nine o'clock in the morning, and everybody be
put to serious inconvenience? Do sanitary
precautions require it? Charleston, hereto
fore, never has suffered anything from keeping
the market open till ten, or even eleven, o'clock
during the hot season, and why the necessity
of so stringent a regulation now ?
Under the present system, every housekeeper
must be in the market when he or she should
be presiding at the breakfast table, or else in
cur an additional outlay in the shape of an ex
tra butler and his stealings.
Here I am, dependent for my very existence
on a good dinner and the smiles of the lady at
the head of the table. Since Mayor Cogswell's
edict, I have seldom hud either. Just imagine
my condition, mental and physical, and also
that of the lady of tb e house : she is utterly
distracted by the vain endeavor to accomplish
the almost impossible feat of saying grace at
breakfast and getting in time to market to
order dinner. Withou t her presence breakfast
is a tome affair, and without a good dinner life
is of no account.
