THE SCH?TZENFEST.-This jolly occasion, as

house" yesterday. The grounds were thronged
with Germans, their families, guests, and citi

-..continued until every wrinkle in every corpo
- rosi ty present was smoothed clean out. The
. amount of lager punished was fearful, and yet
. nota singlo specimen of intoxication was visi?
ble to the naked eye. The shooting was kept
np unremittingly, and three more prizes taken,
' leaving six to be contested for to-day. The
. greased pole was one of the popular centres of
- attraction, but BO far its oleaginous periphery
. .has proved sn effective blockade to the prizes
~on the summit,
All sorts of races were improvised, and the
shouts of laughter with which the trials were
.received made havoc among vest buttons and
. suspenders. The dancing was highly enjoyed
- and enjoyable. The music was admirable and
inspiriting, sud many an old couple, who had
years enough to be grand parents, "tripped
?.the light fantastic" with a genuine German
- vehemence that was contagious.
The crowning scenes of the "Feat" will
.occur to-day. Everybody and bis wife are ex?
pected, and. rare sport is anticipated.
In addition to the amusements, the
blind race for the bear will take
place, prizes will be awarded, the
new "King" will be installed with the usual
ceremonies, speeches will be made ad libitum,
songs s ung, sud the largest possible variety
given to the enjoyment

DEDICATION OF THE AVERT PUBLIC SCHOOL.
Pursuant to notice the above institution was
formally opened yesterday afternoon. We have
already given the public a description of the
premises and the object for which they were
erected. The audience was composed chiefly
of colored persons, but there were also present
Gen. B. E. Scott, Judge Bryan, Col. Willard,
and a number of the officials connected with
the school department of the Freedmen's Bu?
reau. To General Scott is due the credit of
having begun and completed the undertaking,
which has added another to the handsome
public institutions of the city.
The exercises were under the -direction of
Rev. F?li. Cardoza, and were commenced by
the singing of a children's chorus. Selections
from the Scriptures were then read by BOT. J.
Adams (colored), aft-c: which prayer was offer?
ed by Ber. M. Pease.
Rev. Mr. Hicks, Pastor of the Dutch Re?
formed Church, of Brooklyn, was then intro?
duced, and delivered a strong, instructive,
sensible and eloquent address. He said that
he presumed he had been selected as the ora?
tor of the occasion because he was a repre?
sentative of the true and tried friends of the
colored man in every section of this vast coun?
try-not in a partisan sense, bat in the
broad catholio humane idea that free?
dom means nothing unless it is based
upon education. The dedication of this school
in the City of Charleston was an event big with
promise, because it indicated the true line of
progress and unfolded the correct and only
method of restoration. School houses are the
missionaries of freedom, and the ballot with?
out the school would be a murderous and ter?
rible bombshell fired indiscriminately and at
random into society. A representative govern?
ment presupposes popular education. Its per?
manency depended upon general intelligence,
and in the proportion that ignorance prevailed
there waa positive danger to the government.
Education is the cohesive power of a nation,
but ignorance in the end would swamp a popu?
lar government anywhere. Each man ie the
only proper and safe guardian of his own
rights, and no one could claim as personal
rights things which conflict with and prevent
the general welfare of the whole community,
of which he is an integral part. Hence no
rights, individual or national, can be long
maintained where the masses are uneducated.
Hence every attempt to establish liberty for
an uneducated people has signally failed, and
must fail to the end of time. Look at France 1
Who can compute the wealth of life that has
been lavished by her patriots to secure national
I freedom. And yet has she ever been free ?
Can she be free? Never, so long as twelve
millions of ber people are unable to read and
write. So in America-ignorance is the dead
rot of national progress.
Yours, said the speaker, is a situation
which, prior to the election of Abraham Lin?
coln, was not contemplated as possible. It is
a situation for which you have made no prepa?
ration, and yet which requires experience
and a degree of mental culture-a situation
rioh in priceless blessings, bui full of dangers
that may bring curses upon your heads in a
single night. It would be unjust to the coun?
try to you and to myself were we not to re?
cognize the fact that your emancipation and
elevation to citizenship was an event of fearful
violence and of sudden result. This fact adds
to the precariousness of your present status.
Public sentiment is not to bi played with.
It is something that must be educated before
it oan be controlled-something that must be
won to your side of the question, and, let me
say to you, it can never be done by violence in
a free country. In a little while the protection
thrown around you by the Freedmen's Bureau
will be removed. You will then be compelled
to exert yourselves for subsistence among
those who are opposed to you politically. Self
interest should compel you to cultivate friend?
ly relations with these people ; and to
co-operate in all that tends to promote
harmony, prosperity and progress. You are
to look upon the man, not the politician; upon
the citizen, not the partisan; upon the patriot,
not the carpet-bagger; upon the American, not
the negro; upon the domiciliated neighbor, not
the predatory mischief-maker and street loafer
who, having no visible mea is of support, preys
upon the resources of the country. Form your
children into line and march them to the
school house; but let politics alone.
Another reason why you should move to?
gether is this, that the disabilities which have
been thrown around the white people of the
South will soon be removed, and their energy,
endurance and fertility of resource will be
more than a match for your inexperience. You
may monopolize the labor, but they will ob?
tain the ascendancy in the administration of
public affaire. Your first duty, therefore, is to
become intelligent and educated. , Until then,
all the suffrage you can employ, a? the ballots
you can cast in the great elections, will not be
worth the snap of a finger to you. Your future
no moro depends upou your right to vote than
upon the incantations of a sorcerer.
This is but a meagre abstract of the dis?
course of Dr. Hicks. It was listened it with
marked attention, and the views enunciated,
startling as they occasionally must have been
to some of the ''bright and shining lights" of
the party, were enjoyable and suggestive.
The children again sang, and the benedic?
tion was ?hen pronounced.
THE CAROLINA PEDIA DONNA COMING TO
CHARLESTON-DON PASQUALE AND EL BAR?
The season o? amusements seems to have
bees bom again of sommer warmth and splen?
dor, and the good folks have not had time to
sound the depths of the pleasures of the
before the notification is given that Charlestoi
will for three days possess an Italian opera
As a general thing, the operatic singers wh<
have visited Charleston during the last
years have not been fameux. There was
usual calf-less tenor, corpulent soprano, wea
zened contralto, and burly basso, but very
of ?hem felt sufficient interest in their andiene?
to do their very best. Charleston is a mer?
village to those who have sung in the choruses
at Paris, London or New York, and any howling
or operatic evisceration was good enough
us. This is not nattering bet true, and it is
comfort to know that an operatic company i3 now
coming, one member of which, at least, would
find her greatest pleasure in the judicious
plauae of a Carolina audience.
Miss S. Isabel Mcculloch, the Prima Donna
is a native of Columbia, at which plaoe she
lived until the end of the war. She made her

Charleston are "Il Barbiere" and "Don Pas
quale." These operas are especially adapted
parlor representation, and, with the exception
of the choruses, which are not important
either, will be given intact,-mise en scene re
oitative and full costume.
Miss Mcculloch has been warmly praised
both operas, and is well supported by Sign
Susini, whose rich mellow tone is well known
us, as well as by Signor Orlandini, whose voice
is a pure baritone, and who is one of the best
Barbieri ever heard on the stage. The tenor
Signor Boye, has a very sweet organ, and Bings
with truth and taste.
Signor Torriani, the Musioal Director, re?
mained in South Carolina during the war, and
ia well known in Columbia.
The company have draws large houses in Pe
tersburg, Norfolk and Richmond, and, as will
be seen by the advertisement, will give their
first representation to-night at the Mills
House. 27 Barbiere will be performed, and the
music-loving public may expect auoh a render
ing of that immortal opera as has not often
been seen in any Southern city.
THE CHARLESTON TURNERS IN AUGUSTA.
The delegation from the Charleston Turners
whose intended visit to Augusta waa noticed
in THE NEWS, left for that city on Sunday, and
spent three days in pleasant and fraternal in
tercoorse with their friends from the Father?
land. The object of the visit was to reorganize
the Turner Lodge in Augusta and to inangu
rate the oincera. The delegation was met at
the depot and the hospitalities of the city ex?
tended; they were feasted and feted, and left
with the conviction that Georgia is the Empire
State and the Germans a great people. While
in Augusta they were invited to visit the race
course, where a barbecue had been prepared
and after the inner man was refreshed
speeches were made, grips exchanged, and
thorough good fellowship established. The
Turners in Augusta are rapidly increasing in
THE CATHOLIC FATS.-The ladies have been
indefatigable in repairing breaches, and hiding
from sight the effect of four nights of briak
sales and big profits; bnt some of the tables
are already rather bare, and the glory of the
Fair must soon be on the wane. New objects
of curiosity and speculation have, however,
been brought in daily, and some of the
most dainty dishes set before the public
are still without a winner. At table No. 3 there
is a fine water-color drawing, by a Charleston
lady, and at each of the other tables there
is some rich, rare object sighing for an owner

cream, have lost none of their attractions, and

The firemen are bailo tin g bravely for the fire*,
man's trumpet and suit, and one of the com?
panies is rumored to be wry far ahead. Little,
however, is said, as the mention of the name
of the company referred to would lead to re?
newed efforts on the part of emulating compa?
nies. This is the time to put in the ballots, and
if all the companies work hard and vote freely
it is certain that somebody will win.
On Wednesday night tie proprietors of the
well known City Square Saloon presented a

Those Ward Meetings.
To the Editors of Ike News:
The card of "A True Conservative," publish?
ed in your issue of Thursday, renders a brief
statement of facts necessary, as a matter of
simple justice to ali parties concerned. The
meetings in Wards Nos. 5 and 6 were called in
pursuance of resolutions passed by a mass
meeting of the citizens of the upper wards,
held at Oppenheims Hall, and again by a mass
meeting of the citizens generally, held at Ma?
sonic Halt. On each of these occasions the
meetings in Wards Nos. 5 and 6 were an?
nounced, and public notice of the same was
subsequently given in the columns of THE
DAILY NEWS. If your correspondent be, as he
professes, "A True Conservative," let bim
cease quibbling and go to work like a man.
