TEE OBPHAN HOUSE MAIOOS.-The May fes?
tival erf this institution was celebrated yester?
day*, as in times past, at the farm of Mr. P. J.
Porcher, that gentleman, having extended the
hospitalities tb the children, their Webers and
the Board of Cbmmissjoners. A happy band
? of Little -ones Jeftlho city yesterday morning
on the Northeastern Railroad and were soon at
the proraiaed land. Every arrangement had
be?m made to secure the comfort of the orphans;
.?each dormitory had been divided off and was un?
der the charge pi its special nurse. These kept
- their li t Qe nooks together until the whole were
cusmiesod to enjoy themselves under the shade
of the live oaks, cr to engage in such amuse?
ments as might prove moat attractive. A
-small boat, which was idly floating in the
creek, was soon furnished with a willing crew, I
and the gallantry of the sex was displayed in
the eagerness of the boya to give their fan*
-companions a few natural lessons. The morn
-ing hours passed quietly and pleasantly, and the
-dinner call summoned the merrie party to the
May feast that had been furnished by the com
. missioners. Each oak shaded a group of little
ones busily engaged in discussing the good
things of this Rfe, while a long table at a little
.distance accommodated tbs commissioners,
teachers and invited guests, in all about one
..'hundred persons. After diner the children,
under the leadership of Miss Irvine, sang seve?
ral songs in unison, and the woods bave sel?
dom re-echoed sweeter strains.
Mr. Porcher was then introduced to the
- .children by Mr. Murren and Mr. W. C. Bee, and
. responded in a short speech, assuring the or?
phans that while he retained possession of the
-farm he would every May day welcome them
-with pleasure, and would cede the place to
them for the day.. The shades of evening ad?
monished the older and wiser beads that it was
-time to turn their faces homeward, and at
-quarter-past 6 the party were again seated in
the cars, bound for Charleston. The goal was
-reached in due time, and by 8 o'clock the insti?
tution had resumed its former quiet, and the
May festival was numbered among the things
Nearly all of the commissi emera, the superin?
tendent and matron, the teachers and other
others of the house were present with the chil?
dren, and partook of the pleasures of the day.
Two hundred and seventy-five children of both
sexes comprised the number of juveniles who
-visited the farm. There are three hundred
and fifteen inmates of the house, but several of
these were too young, and others unable from
different causes to attend. It was, in every
respect, ft day of rmmixed enjoyment, and, if
the verdict of the children could be taken, it
would be unanunoualy decided that they could
not have added another drop to their cup of

The interest manifested in the appro:
municipal elections exhibited itself last
ing in the attendance at Masonic Hall <
or three hundred of the voters residing
lower wards of the city.
The meeting being called to order, ?
Platt was called to the chair and Mr. Jo
Steele chosen secretary.
The chairman announced that the obj
the meeting was to effect an arrangeme
which residents of Charleston posseesin
confidence of the community might be s
ed to fill the different offices in the gift <
people. To accomplish this object, har
i. all the organizations of the city was e
ti al, and to this end resolutions bad beet
pared and would be submitted, which,
consideration, would doubtless be found
dearly entitled to the approval of the mee
Above all is needed promptness of actioi

Mr. W. P. Bussell then offered the folio1

Resolved, That, when the delegates e

Mr. Russell said that the only object ail

that harmony without which success could
be commanded, flo expression of opii

A citizen from one of the upper wards b
exception to the attempt, which he concei
was being made to ignore the action abrei
taken in the upper wards, and expressed
hope that.the resolutions would not be adopt
on the ground that they sought to divide pi
lie sentiment by merely geographical J imita
The chairman said that such waa by
means the object of the r?solu tiona, which w
intended, on the contrary, to secure cone
and uniformity of action. Whatever might
the action of other wards, the matter would
decided at another time, and need not com
tute a part Of the present deliberations.
Mr. P. J. Coogan addressed the meeting
support of the idea already thrown out, tl
without co-operation there could not be si
cess. He advised the voters in the differ?
wards to put their households in order withe
delay. There war no question that the pooj
were of right entitled to a. voice in the erg a
zarion of the municipal government, but it ?
emphatically the part of wisdom to utter th
voice with as much unanimity-especially u
der the circumstances of the moment-as pc
aible, in order to achieve what every true lov
of progress desires-the welfare of Charles to
The question was then taken, and the res
huions were unanimously adopted.
Mr. H. H. DeLeon then rose to anoint of i;
formation and asked the chair whether 1
could inform the meeting if General Gani
would require the new Mayor and Aldermen 1
take the iron-clad oath.
The chair said that be would take the oppo
tunity of banding the gentleman an offlci
letter which had just been placed in his po;
session, and which might answer the questio
addressed to him.

Mr. DoLeon then addressed the meeting
briefly, pertinently and well. He said that th?
reception of this letter gave a now phase to om
affairs. Whatever might be the choice of citi?
zens, however much they might desire tc
manifest their confidence in or do honor tc
certain individuals, it was now evident thai
some man must be chosen who united to large

MAT 8.-The case of Arthur Spearing alias
Chis olin, and Franois P. Lopez, charged with
the morder of Benjamin LeGrand Capers on
the night of April 9th, at Fordham's Hall, was
taken np. T. Y. Simons, Esq., and H. G.
Yoong, Esq., appeared for Lopez, and W. E.
Mikell, Esq., for Chisolm.
The Attorney-General addressed the jory OD
the nature of the crime of morder, and showed
the difieren ce between that and manslaughter.
E. M. Whiting, Esq., Dr. Middleton Michel,
and several colored witnesses, were examined,
bot the court adjourned without concluding
the testimony for the prosecution; thirty wit?
nesses being in attendance.
The evidence elicited showed that Chisolm,
Lopez and the deceased were at a dance given
at Fordham's Hall, and that Capers (the de?
ceased) had requested the hand of Amelia At?
kins for the next dance, bot being refused, he
had called ber a black bitch and repeated the
offensive epithet twice. Amelia had gone to
the ball with Chisolm, and he was told of the
conduct of Capers. Chisolm walked towards
Capers and s truck him a blow ; he was also
also Strock by Lopez, who aided and abetted
Chisolm in the assault. Capers then tamed
and retreated, bot seized a China pitcher and
struck at Chisolm. The blow was received by
Wm. Nelson, who was trying to separate the
parties, and the pitcher fell to the ground
und was broken. Capers then started to leave
the room, bot stumbled over a bench and fell,
and while prostrate was stabbed by Chisolm
with a dirk. Chisolm remarked that he had
killed tbe damned-and left the hall
with Lopez, both of them accompanying
Amelia Atkins to her home in George-street.
Some of the parties who were present went for
a doctor, and one Boot went to the detective of?
fice and informed Officer Chapman who arrest
ed Chisolm. It was subsequently ascertained '
that Lopez had been accessory to the act, and he
was also arrested. Amelia Atkins and Chisolm
had been bring together as man and wife, and j
the latter was very jealous of the attentions paid
by Capers. The arrest was made at Amelia's
house, and the next morning the dirk was
found on her bed. The blade filled the wound
exactly, and the dirk was identified on the
The post mortem elimination held by Dr.
Michel Bho wed that the blade had entered be?
tween the ribs, and bad penetrated the heart,
almost severing the base, and causing instant
death. The evidence was nearly the same as
that produced before the coroner, and went to
show that there had been some ill-feeling be?
tween Chisolm and Capers on account of
Amelia. Lopez had acted as the friend of
Chisolm, and had struck Capers whon the
quarrel commenced. The trial will be contin?
Tho courtroom was densely crowded with
colored persons, every inch of space behind
the railing being taken, while a large number
succeeded in obtaining standing room inside
the bar. The pressure around the door was so
great that the railing gave way, and the con?
stables were unable to make the crowd retire.
There is considerable excitement among the
colored class in regard to the murder, and
threats have been publicly ottered that if the
accused is acquitted he wont live long.
Chisolm is a fine looking light-colored mu?
latto, Lopez being younger and darker. They
were both apparently at their ease, and heard
the testimony against them with nonchalance.
The witnesses nave evidently conned their
parts; for there was a singular unanimity in
their statements and language.
The Firemen's offering to the Orphans
To the Editors of the Daily News :
I have noticed with much satisfaction the
great interest generally manifested by the Fire
Department in this offering, and no donbt the
result of the generous contest for the prize
will be no less flattering to the firemen than
acceptable to the Sisters' orphans. Bat I am
told that a few companies, whose members are
small, think that they will have "no showing"
in the contest, and therefore feel timid to
enter the lists. Permit me to make to them
a suggestion. Let their motto be, " well try,"
I am Bure many of onr citizens would be
pleased to have an opportunity of testifying
their appreciation of their favorite companyi
and would place their preference on record if j
they could attend the Fair. But as many will
be prevented from doing so, I would suggest
that some of the members should call on their
friends for a few votes to help them out. En?

hand over to the Washington Fire Company,
for this purpose, from a MECHANIC.

Dr. J. J. Lawrence:
DEAS Sra:-I take pleasure in recommending your
ROSADALIS si a very powerful alterative I have
seen it used in two cases with happy results-one a
case of recondary syphilis. In which the patient pro?
nounced himself cured after having taken five cot?
tles of your medicine; the other a case of scrofula,
of long standing, which is rapidly improving under
its use, and the indications are that tho patient will
soon recover. I have carefully examined the formu?
la by which your Bosadaha is made, and find it an
excellent compound of alterative Ingra J i en ts.

Dr. J. J. Lawrence:
DZAB Sra-My youngest daughter, aged five years,
has been dreadfully afflicted with Scrofula nearly all
her Ufe. I tried a great many physicians, but with?
out relieving her much; in fact, most of them said
there was no hope of cure. During the last spring
she waa worse than ever, her body and limbs being
covered with sores and blotches-with fase and eyes
badi; ulcerated and swollen. Whilst in thia condi?
tion I was advised by Dr. L. A. S ti th to try your
Rosadalis. I at once procured three bottles, and
commenced giving it to her. The effect was magi?
cal. In less than a month, to my great astonish,
ment, she waa entirely well.
