THE CON-CERT LAST NIGHT.-The concert
room at tho Mills House was again crowded last
nicht by an audience anxious to applaud Miss Mc?
culloch and her companions of the Parlor Opera
Troupe. Susini was excellent in "Madamina il Cato
logo," and the famous aria from ..Ernani." Orlan
dini gave new charms to the thoroughly worn out
and hackneyed "H Balen," and graceful ballad from
"Bailo in Masshera," and Boye sang the passionate
romanza from "La Travista" and the tender "La
Donna c Mobile" with great effect Miss Mccul?
loch was applauded to the echo and encored again
ana again. Torriani's "Valse" would be famous if
it were more generally known, and was sung by
Mi83 Mcculloch in a manner that proved that vocal
gymnastics had no terrors for her. The "Last Bose
of Summer" Miss Mcculloch sang exquisitely, and
this was the gem of the evening.
Signor Torriani accompanied the singers with
great taste and judgment, and iu a duo with Miss
Mc Culloch was warmly applauded.
To-night is the grand complimentary benefit to
Miss Mcculloch, and the programme is as attractive
as the voice of the fair b?n?ficiaire. Miss Mcculloch
must have a bumper t
A DESTRUCTIVE WIND NEAR GZOBGHOWN, S.
C.-A terrible blow, attended^ with much damage to
property and loss of Ufe, took place above- George?
town, S. C., on Thursday last, between two and three
o'clock P. M. The Wind commenced at the planta?
tions of Dr. Gaillard and Mr. Reese Ford, on Black
River, where the buildings were somewhat injured,
and took a course from there to the Peedee River,
where lt passed Immediately over the plantation of
Dr. Fishbone. At this point lt was terribly severe, dc -
motoning some thirty Email bull dings, breaking most
of them entirely np, and injuring several large struc?
tures, and in the demolition of these houses some
three colored persons were killed outright, and several
others badly if not dangerously injured. The trees
along tie coarse of the wind presented a scene of en?
tire destruction, being almost nniversahy broken or
rooted np, and in several instances were lifted from
the ground to a great elevation. It is feared that
farther damage to lifo and property may be heard
of. The hour being-one when many pc rsons were in
the field and not at their residences, prevented a
greater loss of Ufe.
THE NICHOLSON PAVEMENT. -This pavement
has been praised wherever it has boen used,
and most of the large cities are now discarding
the old cobble stone pavement for the Nichol?
son. The propriety of using this style of pav?
ing in Charleston was agitated as early as 1850, but
the committee then'appointed to consider tho feasi?
bility of adopting-the patent reported adversely, con
Eldering lt to be hable to decay. Since that time the
Nicholson pavement has been subjected to a tho?
rough Wal and has given great satisfaction. A pave?
ment of this description, which was laid on one of
the principal thoroughfareB in Boston, has stood the
test of travel for six years without costing the city,
one cent for repairs. The wood used for this pave?
ment was the spruce pine, .which ls much softer and
more pliable than th e South ern pine. Kin ce the war,
when the city contemplated repairing East Bay and
Broad streets, the Mayor communicated- with the
municipal authorities of different cities that had
adopted fte Nicholson pavement. The report in each
case was the same, all uniting; in recommending the
Nicholson as the best invention known. Motives of
economy induced Council to adopt the cobble stones,
but the experience of the past shows that this style
of parement requires constant repairs. Under the
new regime, Improvements seem to be the order of
the day, and, as there are now several streets sadly
In need of a good pavement, the present would seem
to be the time to bring the Nichol sen again before
the public. Mr. Hugh Ferguson bas been recently
appointed the agent of the patentee for this city, and
ire learn that a memorial on this subject will be pre?
sented to Connell at their next meeting. Tho price
yt laying a cobble-stone pavement is about two dol?
ors and five cents per square yard, not including
Ins cost of subsequent repairs. The Nicholson will
?st from two dollars and seventy-five cents to t ?ree
lollara, and is warranted to last from fourteen to
twenty years, without costing the city a cent for re?
pairs. It is a subject of great importance, and de?
serves the attention of property owners and tax pay?
ers, M well as the municipal authorities.
THE WASHINGTON LIGHT INFANTRY CHARI?
TABLE ASSOCIATION.-On the ? M of February last we
bad the pleasure of publishing a notice of the anni?
versary of this association, with a hst of its officers
Anything relating to the relief of those of our
friends and .countrymen,, whose wounds or mis?
fortunes in the death oi relatives in the late war have
Impaired their ability for self-support, or whose
meagre earnings render the education of their chil?
dren impossible, most ever be a matter of earnest
solicitude to the citizens of Charleston. We have
thought, in this connection, that a brief reference to
the objects of this flourishing and active association,
and a detail of some of the amounts "expended by it
within the last few yous for Tarions purposes con?
nected with the relief of the necessities of this large,
needy and highly esteemed portion of oar people,
whose claims to generous sympathy and substantial
aid we must all heartily recognize, might be a sub?
ject of interest to many of our readers.
The association, we learn, notwithstanding its
yearly expenses, has been enabled, by the judicious
management strict economy and enterprise which
has always marked its progress as a body, to make
certain investments, the proceeds of which are in?
tended as the basis ot future charities, and, in addi?
tion, has contributed through the hands of the ener?
getic Cmmittee on Charity nearly four hundred and
if ty dollars ($450) for the relief of persons directly
ir Indirectly affected by the c-naMes of war. This
nun has been apportioned in various ways; some
ia\e received a monthly allowance to assist in the
lally maintenance of themselves or their families;
> th ers have asked for temporary relit f, and have noe
leen refused; others have had a monthly contribu
ion to defray, Inpart the tuition of orphan children,
md some dying of the effects of wounds received in
service have been interred partly at the expense of
A considerable amount has been given to the en
erprise of those noble ladies whose zeal in attending
he sick, nursing the wounded, and watching over
he last , moments of the dying, is only equalled by
he self-eacrificfhg devotion which now stimulates
heir unwearied energies to provide a heme for the
vidow and orphan. A handsome purse was pre
ented-an unsolicited acknowledgement-of the
ervlces of one whose name excites a thrill of ad.
airatian and love in the breast of nearly every sol?
der who travelled the South Carolina Railroad from
861 to 1865.
The association has in contemplation additional
lbj ec ts of charity and usefulness. The reward, which
onshits in the gratification of thus paying a debt
f gratitude and love to the fallen and those they
eave behind them, consoles its members for debar?
ing themselves the pleasure of a more extended
md expensive reunion at their anniversary. The
latiafaction of contributing to the education of the
unfortunate, of helping the maimed, of feeding the
mungry, of housing the forlorn and the distressed,
s ample compensation for husbanding fifty cents i
per month, the monthly assessment of each mem?
ber, paying it into the general treasury, to be dealt
mt in such a manner as the judicious Committee on |
Charity, after due investigation, shall recommend. I
We are pleased to make this gratifying statement
to our readers. Of all the associations founded by i
the survivors of the war, this is one of the larcest ;
ind most zealous in forwarding the objects for which <
t was formed. We would like to see it larger, in <
irder that its usefulness might be more extended. I

CONSERVATIVE MASS MBKIII? OF THE TJFPE.
WARDS.-A mass meeting of the voters of the uppe
wards was held last night at the Washington Engin
Honse. Mr. W. S. B enere? was called to the chair
and Mr. A. L. Tobias appointed secretary.
The chairman said the meeting was called togethe:
for the purpose of determining the manner in whicl
nominations should be made for the coming elec
dons. Tho lower wards had already concurred ii
the action of the upper wards, and if the up; e:
wards would now agree to the action of the lo wei
wards, held on Thursday last, thero would bo tho?
rough unanimity and concert ot action among thc
the Conservative voters of the city.
Mr. T. J. Knauff then offered a series of resol u
tions, which were ordered to be considered seriatim.
A gentleman then arose and defended somewhat
warmly the course of the meering already held ix
Ward 6. He said that this ward wanted no favor and
would give none, and was ready to defend ita action.
It was then moved that only those wards which
hadnot already elected nominating committees meet
to-night, which motion was subsequently with?
Mr. Martin urged the calling of a new meeting
in Ward G. He said that it was only fair and proper,
and would show that tho meeting already held was a
representation of the ward. Unless the mee ting was
a pocked one, there would be no objection.
Captain Carson followed, and argued against any
new meeting where a meeting had been held.
It was then said that the meeting in Ko. 6 was only
called by a few people, and to this it was replied that
one hundred and twenty p erions were present
The chairman then explained the manner in which
the Conservative Committee of the city bad been
formed. He said that he had been a member of the
committee, and behaved it to be an honest and un?
selfish body; but the opinion had been formed that
lt was the organ of a clique, and far that reason the
committee had determined to recommit the whole
matter to the wards themselves. In conclusion, he
explained the necessity of harmonious and united
? A number of scattering motions were made, and
Coroner Whiting then addressed the meeting. He
urged the gentlemen to be united m working for a
common cause, deprecated all divisions, and said
that be was prepared to vote and work for any man
who might be nominated by the party.
The resolutions were then carried nearly unani?
mously. They are as follows:

prints, at a suitable hall in each ward, and that when
assembled, '.hey shall organize and select by ballot
five delegates, to meet a like number from all the
wards, to nominate a suitable candidate for Mayor,
and that those wards which have already elected
committees shall ratify the same at the meetings of
their wards, to be held to-morrow night
Resolved, That each ward when assembled shall
take such steps as they may deem advisable to nom?
inate aldermen for their respective wards.
Resolved, That this meeting accept the proposition
to ratify in mass meeting the nominations made, said

of the Nominating committee.
The chairman announced that the ward meetings
