A HEABTBENDINO OCCUBBENCE.- Yesterday af?

art gallery over the fctore of Miles Drake, Etq., was
so severely burned by* kerosene eil lhat her life is
despaired of. Sho had been laboring under mental
abel ration lor several days, which developed itself
moro seriously yesterday afternoon, when she pro?
cured 9 large can of kerosene oil and emptied it
about the gaUery, and thea applied a mate"1 :o tho
inflammable substance Mr. Osborn was several
rooms off, and ignorant of her st:ange ac,
Hons, until she came rushing into his apartment,
enveloped in flames. Sc. ing her alormi g condition >

THE MOUNT PLEASANT FE?,BT. -Thc cltizons
of Mount Pleasant and Sullivan's islaud can congrat?
ulate themselves that there ls again a comfortable
boat upon the ferry line, ind there is no longer any
risk of communication with the city being suddenly
and unexpectedly interrupted. Mr. H. L P. McCor?
mick, who has beon keeping up the lino during tho
last two or three years for the accommodation ot thc
public, in the m dst of great diffloultici and discour
agemen's, is a man of too many resources and too
much energy to be overcome, oven by the loss ol a
good boat. When the Rockland was sunk last week
by on unfortunate occident, and tho patrons of tho
line were compelled to put np with the accommoda?
tions of the Plato, Mr. McCormick, after making
arrangements for raising the Rockland as early as
possible, went at once to Savannah. There he with?
drew the Edlslo from the Savannah and Danen
line, which had proved very pio?tablc, in order ta
put her on the Charleston and Edisto line, and thus
redeve the Pocoin, which he ordered to Charleston.
He then returned to Charleston, and is now here
managing the lerry with his accustomed skill, aud
prepared as ever to use all his ability and tact for the
accommodation of the pub ic, and thc advancement
of the interests of Charlo jton and the sui rounding
