dred, formed in line, and marched to the Ann
street deoot, where they took the cars, and
went whizzing to the famous platz. They had
not been in the grounds many moments before
dancing and merriment began. Firing at the
eagle was enjoyed by the boys, and several
carried off prizes; Master Berkhan being the
most successful competitor-proving bimself a
crack shot by bringing down the eagle-was
awarded the firc? prize and declared king for
tbe ensuing year!
The parents and many friends of the schol?
ars joined the party during the day, and the
whole number present was increased to four or

Ax ASSAULT.-As Stephr.ey Riley, the well
known colored hack driver, was driving down

words, but al last lost his temper and struck
the girl with bis wliip. The girl then weDt
before a magistrate and took out a warrant for
Riley's arrest. Of course, there was great pro?
vocation for the assault, but it would have
been better if Ri lev bad bad the good sense to
let tho girl alone.
THE MONUMENTAL F AIB-FIREMEN'S PHIZES.
The comtiittoo of tho Monumental Fair of the
Washington Light Infantry Charitable Asso?
ciation received yesterday two silver lanterns

TEE CASE OF THE BANK OF THE STATE.-In
this case there are three classes of claimants
upon the f'vds: lat. The foreign holders of
tho bonds, .aaued by the State and guaranteed
by tho bank. 2d. Tho holders within the Uni?
ted Statea of thc bonds and stock. 3d. The
biilbolders, who have not funded their claims,
and accepted bonds of the State in satisfaction
of their demands.
The questions relate to th? priority of these
claims upon the assets, or whether they are to
be proportionally paid.
By the order of Chancellor Lesesne, the as?
sets of the bank were placed in the banda of
the President and Cashier of thc bank, to hold
the sime under the authority and aa the custo?
dians of tho court.
Yesterday, Mr. Attorney-General Chamber?
lain, moved before Judie Carpenter for the
appointment of a receiver of all the assets and
o'.her property of the bank, and that the re?
ceiver so appointed do give bond with securi?
ties to be approved by the court, to re?oive,
hold and keep the real and personal estate,

A General Holiday.
CHARLESTON, April 21,1869.
TO THE EDITOR Or" THE NEWS.
Gentlemen-I noticed in your paper a few
days since a suggestion which I think is woll
timed, aud I hope will be carried out. I al?
lude to a paragraph recommending the ap?
proaching anniversary of tho Fire Department
to be observed as a general holiday. We have
now no general holiday. Before the war we
had the Fourth of July, but we have no heart
for that now. Under God's mysterious pro?
vidence wo aro groaning under an almost in?
tolerable infliction of unprincipled men, who
misgovern the State, and the recurren ?e of tho
Fourth can only recall to our minds the ante
bellum days when a free people celebrated tbe
day, and ?ll our hearts with bitterness. But I
have Jost sic ht of what I intended to say. I
proposo making the anniversary of thc Fire
Department a general holiday and gala day for
tbo citizens of Charleston, who, one and ail,
take such a jnst pride in that noble organiza?
tion. Leaving their efficiency out of the ques?
tion, we admire thc spirit of emulation without
jealousy that pervades their ranks, and tho
esprit de corps that prompts our firemen, each
one, to feel himself interested for the well be?
ing and good name of the whole. On the ap?
proaching occasion, which will be specially in?
teresting, would it not bc appropriate that, by
a suspension of business for that day, our citi?
zens may turn out cn masse to do fitting honor
to our gallant firemen and their guests ?

DOOLY COUNTY, GA , April, 1887.
Thia is to certify that I was confined totbe house,
and most of the time to my bcd, and suffering the
greatest agony Imaginable with Rheumatism, for
Uve months, and after trying every avaiiablo reme?
dy, with no relief, I was cured with two bottles of
Dr. O. S. Prophitl's Anodvno Pam Kill It, each cost?
ing fifty cents only; it relieved me almost instantly.
I therefore recommend it in the highest degree to
others suffering from similar disease. I can say
that lt is one ol the best family medicines now out,
certain. Yours truly, V7. A. FOREHAND.
