precisely on Saturday, the 20th June instant. 1
course will be from Southern wharf-the six

to be final and binding upon all parties. If the ra
is not made within four hours, it will be a dra\
race for the day, and will be run over on the folio

of the stakes, four hundred dollars a side, mokl
five hundred dol?ais a side in all, must be deposit
with Captain F. W. Dawson, the stakeholder, befo
12 M. on the 19th inst, or the money already depc
ited will be forfeited. No oars or paddles are to 1
used lu the race.
It will be seen that the conditions are perfect
clear, and, as the yachts run even, there will be i
room whatever for misunderstanding. The race w
certainly take place, and there is no reason why tl
day should not be a general half-holiday.
The Maggio Mitchell, the Jones' yacht and otha
of their class may take part in the big race, and li
them there are special conditions. Each yacht ru

before Saturday next, in the hands of the stake-hold)
in the one thousand dollar race. Th i Ella Anna an
Eleanor will allow the smaller yachts half-a-minul
in time for each mile run, and In other respects th
conditions ia the mam race will hold good. Th1
wUl be equal to a double race, and one of the ema
yachts msy have the consolation of winning a pur?
of three hundred dollars, if six yachts m all nu
while one of the two larger yachts takes the purse c
one thousand dollars.
This smaller race is proposed so as to give ever
yacht a chance of winning lame, and lt is hoped tba
a: least four of the "Musquito Fleet" will beentei
ed before Saturday. Steamers will accompany th
squadron, and there is every prospect of Charleston
enjoying a bright and exciting day.
INSTALLATION or THE PASTOS AND DEACON,
or TBE CITAD EL SQUARE BAPTIST CHURCH.- Th
Wentworth-atreet and the Citadel. Square Baptis
Churches have recently formed one corporation
known as the Citadel Square Baptist Church (tb
name Baptist being supplementary), and called th
Rev. E. T. Winkler, D. D, to the pulpit. This cal
was accepted, and the installation of the pastor ant
orneara of the new church was conducted yesterda;
morning by the Bev. J.-W. M. Williams, D. D., o
After the opening services, whloh were the same ai
usual, Mr. Winkier stated to the congregation thi
occasion that had called them together, and intro
duced the Bev. Dr. Williams. That divine obese fbi
his subject , a portion, of John 1st, lil, 24th, "Anc
hereby we Know that He abide th inna by the Spirt
which He hath given ns," The union, he said, be
tween Christ and his people was a reality,
and not a conjecture, aa some supposed
But nothing could be done without the work ol
the Holy Spirit Many persons were like a child oi
noble parents who depended on ance?try and thc
traditions of the past, but was himself degenerate
and useless, and not worthy of this descent. Such
conduct on the part of christians would bring no
comfort to the soul and no profit to the church. He
urged his hearers to remember this an 1 turn over a
new leaf, to commence with their new chu: ch, and
live so that the Spirit would always abide with them.
The Spirit bore witness of a mans life, as ii awoke
bis mental powers and brought him to the throne
rt grace. Ignorance could never be the
notive for religion on the part of a peo
ile endowed with all the noble faculties,
[he Spirit rules the will and leads a
nan upward to God, but if he love sin he would.
Ute water, sink to that level. The love of Christ, in
i nc ed by the Spirit, causes a growth in grace, and
he Christian ls a new man, renewed through the
trace of God, while the unrenewed remain "dead in
resspaifts and Bin." He admonished the oongrega
ion that although the new church had been organ
zed under the most favorable auspices, and while
hey had a fine building and an able ptttor, these
rery elementa of power might prove destructive, un?
es* sanctified by the spirit Let them secure that
presence. Uve near Jesus, and never be satisfied un?
es* they knew that the Spirit abided with them. A
rreat want of the present day was Uve men, both in
he pulpit and in the pews, and without them the
thurch would lean a lingering existence. These were
waly made by the vivifying grace of the Spirit
The Bev. E. T. Winkler thea made a statement,
wowing the reasons for the organization ot the pre
lent church. During tho month of April several
meetings were held, and a committee of conference,
insisting of fiv.efrom eich church, appointed. This
committee presented a report on June 1st, which
was adopted. Its provisions were that the two
churches be united under thc nome of the Citadel
Square Baptist Church; that four trustees, two from
each church, be appointed to have charge of the
property of each".church until the organization was
completed, and that a call be extended to Rev. E. T.
Winkler to fill the pulpit All of theso provisions
had been complied with, and they had mot to-day to
lr vote the blessing of God upon their new church,
and to install tue officers elect The pastor, in ac?
cepting the call, would devote his time to the new
church, and wished to become acquainted with
those of the members who were unknown to him.
He also asked their assistance in the prosecution of
bis work, and th? sustaining power of their prayers.
There were V ue ileacons ia the two churches, and
the duty had been Imposed upon the committee of
selecting from their number. They had decided on
the following six gentlemen, three being members of
each church: Robert Brodie, James Tupper, W. S.
Henerey, W. G. Whilden, W. B. Heriot and John G.
M'lnor. In the church government the action of
the Philadelphia Convention would be adhered to,
md in reading the covenant of the now church with
Sod, the members would each respond at the con?
fusion, ' >I do." The covenant was then read by
Ur. Winkler, thc merni ?rs rising and answering the
question if* y-.ij sgreed to 1U provisions by the re?
sponse, "1 do."
The officers of the church were then request
sd to come forward and bc charged with the
.lurtes of their office, and receive the right hand of
fellowship from the Bev. Dr. Williams. Having
taken their stations in front of the pulpit, they were
iddressed by Dr. williams. Ho said there was no
rach passage in the Bible as "like Priest Uko people;"
lie world would like to throw tie responsibility on
the pastor; but the Bible did say, "like people like
Priest;" they made the minister, and upon them
rested a great responsibility, lt gave him great
pleasure to officiate on this occasion-to welcome
heir pa -tor, and to c\ tend to him the right bani of
ellowship. Ihey had been school boys twenty
rears ago, and since that time had seen much of
lorrow and adversity; but the grace which sus*
aiaed their pastor in the dark days of adver.
?itv would not desert him in prosperity. To
he deacons he said that they had a great work
o perform. Ihey should hold up the hands
if their pastor, and yet be honest and fearless in the
Lischarge of their religious duties. They should
lustain and comfort him, and though six in number,
hould have but one heart. It was essential for a
irsyer meeting to be attended by the deacons, as
heir example was necessary to encourage the young.
Liter some further remarks, he extended the right
ia cd and welcomed each of the deacons and the pas?
er to the church and to the religious duties they bad
The services were concluded by prayer and sing
ng, and the congregation was then dismissed. There
vas a full attendance, notwithstanding the shower,
.nd the impressive services were heard with marked
itention. Dr. Williams is a distinguished divine,
ind has an extended reputation a? a pulpit orator.
Iis manner is easy, with a distinct utterance and
iurficient gesticulation to impress his remarks forci
ilyupon the listener. He delivered the evening
liscourse in the same church.

DEDICATED TO THEM BY , THEIR FBSSTJDEN1
CHARLESTON, J USE S, 1863. _
The following spirited linea were dedicated to tl
Vigilant Fire Company by their President, Captai
S. Y. Tapper, at the regular monthly meeting, he!
ou Tuesday last.
Captain Tupper, in introducing his youngest poi
beal bantling, told the "Vigilants" that tho great ai
vantage of his song was that it could besang to an
imaginable tune, It waa received with ' 'three tim c
three and a tiger," and will not be frgotten whi
there is any honor left for a body of noble and ch
valrous firemen whose President is as brave an
genial a man as ever trod the historic streets (
' St Michael's tower
Has tolled the hour
Of midnight with its chimes;
Sweet music swells
- From those dear bells
That tell of happier times.
The Fireman dreams,
again be seems
A soldier in the land.
As in the day
Of battle fray,
With rifle in his hand.
But bark! that c ry!
And see the sky,
A lurid gleam appears;
And each tall spire
Reflects the fire,
- As o'er the town it glares ;
Then "Big Sam" tolls,
And onward rolls
Our "Little Giant" by;
And shapes ol steam,
With horrid scream, j
Like fi ;rv dragons fly.
With shouts advance
Like rushing ghosts they rally;
Their coats of white
Make clear moonlight
Through every street and alley.
They seize the drags,
Their strenprth ne'er BABS,
As o'er tile stones tliey tear;
And Frank O'Neill,
With big Hose Beel,
Comes tbund'ring in the rear.
Now ends the race.
The fire we face.
An old familiar foe;
And as we stop
The suctions drop
Into the wells below.
See Torrent goes
To lay the hose,
No time for fun or laughter;
Bat soon dispatched
And pipe attached
The waters follow after.
Now, ? rock her boys.
And stop your nolie,"
Shouts Mowry through his trompe t;
For neav'ns sweet Bike
Don't smash the break,
80 furiously you thump it.
And when at length
Her power and strength
- The "little Giant" trusted,
The leathers tear,
And "rip" we hear.
Brown cries, "the hos1) is busted."
"Ho I" cries McCabe,
"A devil's babe
Is this machine of oars;
You can't rely on
Gas pipes or iron,
To check her giant powers."
But here's the Chief;
He's always prompt and ready;
. A grim old "Mose,"
With broken nose,
The firemen call him "Teddy."
But soon, you see,
Our Chap. Huger
Bolls 0 IT ano thor section:
And with Thad. Street,
They soon comp tete
The work oi reconnection.
All right again,
With might and main,
The boys begin to shake her; j
The water flies,
When some one cries,
"You've drenched Gaillard and Baker."
Without a fear
The ladder rear
Against the tottering wall;
While sheets of fire
The stoutest hearts appal.
"Light up the hose 1" /
And upward goes
The brav.-st of our band;
In just such sport
They've stormed a fort,
With bayonets in their hand.
A sudden crash, "
And backwards dash
The surging crowd below;
The roof falls in *
With horrid din,
And fierce flamea upward flow.
The fire fiend roars
AB on her poms ?
A cataract of water;
And midst her fires
In smoke expires
Old Saturn's favorite daughter.
Thus ends our toll,
The hose we coil,
And praise the Giant's dealings;
Then bathe his breast,
His soul needs rest
For ho has human feelings.
The common crowd,
They call us proud,
But ever do they need us;
Worth makes the man,
And if they can
They're wcleon, e to exceed us.
Now, all secure
For home once more,
The Hose Beel is in motion;
And midst wild cries ,
Our Giant tries
Its skill at locomotion.
A sooty crew,
Aid drench'd q Ute through,
Their mirth yon scarce control, sir;
'though Tupper bawl
John Humphreys, call the roll, sir."
Come Loughton Beid,
Thy powers we need
. To swell tbe trump of glory;
Come, sing the praise
Of olden days
So famouB in our story.
Still Dottcrer, Gibbs,
And Harper lives,
Nor death nor time can sever;
And Weat and Hare,
In memory dear,
WiU live with ?B forever.
Three Torrents more,
In all our corps.
Would make us flt for slaughter;
There's John and Joe,
And we can show
A mighty torrent of water.
Four well known Stieets
Aionnd our beats,
With unity assure us;

With State-street jn.it before us.
Yet etlll compete

And to this day

Your pecans lift
To William Swift,
Our ardent, finn supporter;
No mean "small beer"
Will you find here,
But generous sous or Porter.
We have In store
A hundred moro
Like tmery and Le Bleus, sir;
And Fisher's name,
In modest lome,

Great Jove ! control
That despot's soul

OSE or THE ELECT COKE? TO GRIEF. -We-]
leam by a private letter from. Camden that the poli- j
adan of that section, the Hon. (?) George Washing*
ton Solomon Dill, member elect to the Legislature,
was in that town on the 2d inst exhorting the Bads
to rally round the .polls. His efforts were crowned
with success, the party was triumphant, and the il?
lustrious Sol retired to his home across the river.
News was received in Camden on the 5 th that a fra?
cas had occurred the previous night, and Bill and -
two negroes were killed, Mrs. Dill and one negro be?
ing wounded.'The report caused considerable excite?
ment in that quiet community, as although Dill was
not held in the highest esteem by the whites or even
by his own party, lt was the first disturbance that has
occurred in that section. Magistrate Witherspoon
(acting coroner), Sheriff Sill, several gentlemen and
a large number ot negroes went across the river on
the 5th, but had not returned at the closing of the
mail, and no 1 ur th er particulars are known. Dill
fooled many negroes with the promise of forty acres
and a mule, and was not in the best odor with the
Republican party, and several of them remarked
that it was strange he bad not been killed by the ne?
groes long ago.
At a late hour yesterday evening Gen. Canby re?
ceived a letter from Camden, giving a brief account
of the fracas, and attributing the death of Dill to the
bloody Ku-Klux-Klan I
ALLEOED DISCRIMINATION AGAINST CHARLES?
TON.-The following communication, which appears
in the Chester Standard, has been eent to us for ex?
Great Seduction of Freight-Reduction of Frr'ght
by the Great Southern Freight Line.-On and afcer
April 7th, 1868, the following freight tariff will be ob?
From New York to Columbia, first clsss, per 100
lbs., $1; second class, 90 cents; third class, 80 cents;
fourth class, 70 cents; fifth clara 70 cents.
H. T. PEAKE,
GenlSup't S. C. R. R.
Mr. Editor: You see from the above freight tariff,
that the charge lrom New York to Columbia for 100
lbs. of second class articles is fixed at 90 cents-dis?
tance about seven hundred miles. The writer re?
ceived from Charleston 333 lbs. castings, which la
rated ss second class, for which he paid ii 15-dis?
tance one hundred und eighty-five miles. Is this
what 1B called protecting the interest of South Caroli?
na, especially of our good old ci ty, Charleston? How
ls it? Why is it? Where ls our directors? Are they
South Carolinians or Yankee:? *
The writer of the above communication has evi?
dently been misinformed. Stoves-the castings to
which he probably refere-are rated double first
class from New York to Columbia, and first-class
from Columbia to Chester. The charge for one hun?
dred pounds from New York to Columbia would,
therefore, be two dollars-the single first-class being
one dollar-and the charge from Columbia to Ches?
ter would be forty-five cents, making two dollars and
forty-five cents from New York to Chester, instead of ^
the rafe referred to hy the writer in the Standard.
Now for the same articles the rate from Charleston to
Columbia is single first-class rate-forty cents, and
from Columbia to Chester, single first-class rate, for?
ty-five cents, making eighty-five cents from Charles?
ton to Chester, lue toad of the rato of one dollar and
twenty-five cents which the correspondent mentions.
Tl e Standard will see from the above that the dis?
crimination is rather against New York than against
Chester, and if a consignee has paid more than
eighty-five cents per hundred on stoves from this City
to Chester, lt will only bo necessary for him to notify
the superintendent of the South Carolina Rail road o
the fact and, if the overcharge was upon that road
tho difference in rates wlU at once be refunded.
