men and fine all who work without a license.
THE WILMINGTON PBESS UPON TEMPLETON.
The Charleston newspapers a fe vf days since
stated that Templeton had concluded not to
perform in the city Just yet, the Courier re?
marking that "it is as well," and THE NEWS
'.Charleston can stand lt." Both of the Wil?
mington papers quote these remarks, one say?
ing "rather cool that," and the other, ,;we de?
sire amusements In our own city this winter, but
we have no deOght in the presence of such
companies as Templeton's Block Crook crowd."
THE LATE MURDER.-THE NEWS has already
mentioned the arrest of two negroes upon the
Charge of murdering the negro whose hotly was
found floating off the Battery a week ago.
There are two witnesses now in confinement,
who will probably testify to-day. We learn
that the accused were present when the body
of the deceased was disinterred last Friday,
and some one turned suddenly to them and
said: 4,When did you murder this man?"
One of the prisoners quickly replied, " At three
o'clock Friday morning."
AN ATTRACTIVE- R E ?ORT.-One of the pleas?
antest places to visit in Charleston ls the Fine
Art Ga??ry cf Messrs. Cainby & Co., in King
8treer, opposite Hasel street. ' Large additions
have Just been made to the stock of pictures.
Including a number of new and choice engrav?
ings, both plain and colored, flne oil paintings,
and exquisite chromos. These are all the
freshest and the very best of their kind, having
been selected with great care at the North
within the last fortnight by Mr. Barnard in
person. Any of our readers wishing to gratify
their taste lu art, can now do so with advant?
age, as these pictures leave nothing to be de?
sired as drawing-room decorations, and are
entered at prices considerably lower than the
retail rates In New York. , Call early to get the
pick. _\ .
THE HEACTH OF THE Crxr.-Whafis known as*
the ~'sickly season," embracing tho months of
July, Augu? tm* Septtrfiber, J* rfow over.
Among a white population of twenty thousand '
there nave been one hundred and thlrty-se ven
deaths : and among a population of twenty
four thousand blacks there have been two hun?
dred and seventy deaths, divided among the
months as follows : July, seventy-seven whites
and* one hu/idr?i and four blacks ;'August,
thirty-one vhitea and eighty blacks ; Septem?
ber, twenty -nine whites and eighty-six blacks.
There has been no epidemic, nor have there
been any more deaths than usual this season,
and the health of the city wtti compare favora?
bly with ttu\t of any city In the United States.
There has not been one case of yellow fever In
the city during the past summer, and with a
strict quarantine system, such as we have
lately had, there ls no danger of disease of this
kind. " . _
ATTEMPT TO SWINDLE A NEGRO.-There is a
negro man-In lids city .named Johnson, whose
son, Ben, was, a short time since, sentenced
by a court In Charlotte, N. C., to twenty years'
imprisonment In the penitentiary for stealing
a watch. The circumstances connected with
the case left no reasonable doubt In the minds of
thejury that the accused was guilty. He was
caught In the house one night, and the next
morning the watch was missed. However,
after he was imprisoned, the watch was found
where it had been placed by the owner for
safe-keeping and Its hiding place forgotten.
All of this has been communicated to Johnson
by a negro in Charlotte, who offers, If twenty
five dollars be sent him, to procure the release
of Ben. Johnson, who is an old man, wished
to send the money, but he has been advised to
go to the Governor of North Carolina and state
the circumstances, and ask for the release of
his son, wAeh he will rh-obably do.
THAT DEMOCRATIC POLICEMAN.-At half-past
eleven o'clock Friday last, the committee from
the Loyal League called upon tire Mayor and
requested him to remove the~ "Democratic
members" of the police force, and to put Re?
publicans In their places, assuring him that he
woi?d receive the undivided support of the
Republicans If he did so. He assured the com?
mittee that he would gradually relieve the
force of the objectionable members. The com?
mittee then retired. They were not gone
more than five minutes when three Aldermen
?called upon the Mayor, two white and one
.colored. The colored one deslredthe appoint?
ment of a white man upon the police force.
One of the white Aldermen assured the Mayor
that Ire knew thc candidate to be a liberal
minded man, who was willing to let every man
vote as he pleased, but he was not assured
that he was a Republican; he had once made a
good policeman, and was a number one man.
?he other Alderman was surprised to hear his
lend express his doubts about the candi?
date's Republican tendencies ; why ! he
was a " truly loU " one, and should
have the appointment by all means.
This last appeal had thc desired effect,
and the candidate was announced as a
" Knight of the Baton." The Alderman went
away satisfied; but oh, horrors! the Alder?
man who was so certain of the politics of the
candidate he so zealously espoused, received
Information, which left no doubt In his mind,
that he had been supporting a Democrat. His
sleep was troubled-visions of woodsawyers
sawing him into bits for having "gone back"
upon the twelve hundred adherents to the
Radical faith who desired to be "put on guard;"
of long preambles and resolutions from the
Loyal League censuring him for such unre
pubilcan conduct; of Sam Dickerson rising up
and calling him traitor, floated o'er his mind. In
the morning he called upon the Mayor and re?
quested him to recall the appointment, but the
Mayor refused, stating that the appointment
had been made upon the Alderman's asser?
tions, and that the appointee would have to
remain upon the force. The Alderman left
digusted with things generally. The force If
it has gained a Democrat, is also a gainer In
having a resolute man-one who by long ex?
perience ls acquainted with the duties of a po?
liceman, and knows how to discharge them
with firmness and discretion.
THK WOOIWAWYKRS l>|SS.vTISKIKI>.- Al lill' lll.-l
meeting of Council ti resolution wsw adopted
requiring ?ul woodsawyer* io lake ?>ui at?cense
anti HOI io charge more than ?ne dollar for

like the r?solution very much so far ns lt goes,
hut they think it does not go far enough, ami
now desire that a resolution bo adopted by
Council providing that any one who shall
Chamo loss than one dollar for sawing a cord
ol'wood shall be pul In jail. Il is hardly neces?
sary to state that tho resolution will not bo
VESSEL STRANDED.-Information has been
received here from Georgetown, S. C., stating
that tho schooner Hudson, Captain Kemp, with
a cargo of naval stores, which left that place
on the 22d of September for New York, went
ashore on the beach of North Island, north of
Georgetown bar, about the 29th of Septem?
ber. The crew were mostly sick, and the ves?
sel experiencing strong easterly gales, she
was driven ashore. It was mentioned that her
cargo would be saved, but while one report
stated that the vessel would be saved, another
said that she had gone to pieces.

Loss AND GAIN IX COTTON.-Some weeks
ago notice was given that Mr. John H. Holmes,
of Boyce's wharf, one of our Charleston cotton
brokers, had procured a bale of new cotton
and had placed lt under cover In his office,
with a view to test the loss or gain in weight.
The cotton was carefully weighed at 3 P. M.
on September C, and at 9 A. M. and 3 P. M. on
each following day up to September 30. The
result has been given us in tabular form
through the kindness of Mr. Holmes. The
main results are these: On September G
at 3 P. M. the bale weighed 419 pounds,
weather being damp. On September 8, 9,
10 and ll the weather was dry, and
the weight fell to 417| pounds at 3 P. M. Sep?
tember 11th. A succession of damp days follow?
ed, and at 9 A. M. on September 18 und 21 the
bale had risentto 420j pounds; atad by September
25-at 9 A. M. and 3 P. M.-the bale reached 421}
pounds, the maximum. On the last recorded
day, at 3 P. IL, the bale weighed 420 pounds.
The key to the whole table is the range of the
thermometer. As the mercury fell the cotton
grew heavier; as It rose the cotton became
lighter. And we should say that a dif?
ference of ten degrees Fahrenheit with stored
cotton should be generally equal to a gain or
loss of 1J pounds a bale. The following table
shows the weight of the bale on each day, with
the state of the thermometer, the direction of
the wind and the character of the weather :

THE TIMBER CUTTERS ANO THE LUMBER
BILL.-The timber cutters were not at all
pleased with some of Ihe provisions of the
'.Ordinance to create the office of inspector
general of timber and lumber, and to define
his powers and duties, and for other purposes
relating thereto," and contemplated appeal?
ing to the Legislature to make some law
which would not conflict with their interests,
as.?iey allege the said ordinance does. Hear?
ing of this movement the Inspector-General
has drawn up a bill supplementary to the
objectionable ordinance, which, if passed by
Council, and there Ts no doubt that it will,
may meet the approval of the timber cutters,
and prevent their making the proposed ap?
The new bill provides that ''all timber having
any Injurious defect, or any detect, heretofore
specified, other than ring, wind or heart
shakes, shall bo classed as defective timber,
and the price tobe paid for thc same shall boas
agreed upon between the buyer and the seller.
And if any cutter or owner ol' any raft of tim?
ber brought to this market for sale shall con?
ceal, or cause to be concealed, any detective
slick of timber in such ruR, so that the defec?
tive portion, or side, shall not be visible to the
inspector, and shall thereby cause the same to
be classified as merchantable tlmber,such cutter
or owner shall be fined by the Mayor in the
sum of fifty dollars, one-half to be paid to the
informer, and the other half for the use of the
city." That "all timber and lumber brought
to this market for sale, or sold within the lim?
its of the city, or shipped therefrom, shall be
inspected, measured and marked by a duly
authorized inspector and measurer of timber
and lumber, whose foes shall bc for such in?
spection, measuring and marking, as speci?
fied in sections twelve and sixteen re?
spectively of thc ordinance entitled 'An or?
dinance to create the office of Inspector-Gene?
ral of Timber and Lumber,"'Ac. That "for
the gloater convenience of mill owners the
Mayor be, and he ls hereby, authorized to aj>
polnt and license six measurers of lumber,
whose duty it shall be to inspect nntl measure
only such lumber as shall be sawed in the
city, and sold to purchasers residing within
the limits of the same. And snell additional
measurers shall take the same oat li of office,
give the same bond, and be subjected to Hie
same regulations now prescribed for the gov
crnm-.t't of inspectors and measurers of tim?
ber and lumber."

TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
The Courier, a naper which has been libe?
rally sustained by The merchants of Charleston
for many years, in its issue of Friday last,
under the head of "Baltimore Trade," perpe?
trates the following: "We do not hesitate to as?
sert that, In the natural course of events, Bal?
timore will absorb almost the entire jobbing
business of this city and other Southern cities,
and we are warranted in this assertion by the
events of thc past two years."
We would like to have the writer of this article
point out the special advantages that Baltimore
can offer to the country merchant over Charles?
ton, as one would infer he ls learned in matters
of Inls sort. Merchants in thc interior who
have not only tried Baltimore but New York,
say they buy goods In our market as cheaply
as anywhere-freights on heavy goods added.
We can only account for this article by sup?
posing that a few Baltimore* advertisements
brought it out. Well may we exclaim. "Save
us from our friends." MANY MERCHANTS.
[We think that "Many Merchants" have mis?
understood the Intention of the Courier, which
was. we presume, to suggest that the Jobbing
Merchants of Charleston, not the country
merchants, will find it to their advantage to
buy their stocks In Baltimore.-ED. NEWS.]
B V S INES S NOTICES.
.SHIPPERS to Baltimore and Philadelphia will
note the intended dispatch of the steamship
Sea Gull on Wednesday morning, at half-past
7 o'clock. Freight will be received up to the
last hour on Tuesday evening.
THE NEW HARDWARE STORE of Messrs. Hart
& Co., on Hayne street, is a tempting resort
for the country buyers. Opening with an entire?
ly new stock, which is displayed in the most at?
tractive manner, they offer unequalled In?
ducements to the trade. The house is one
of the oldest mercantile Arms in the city, and
their retail stand, at tar einer of King and
Market streets, has an extended and enviable
reputation. The wholesale branch in Hayne
street is a new enterprise, but is conducted
on the same sound and liberal business prin?
ciples that have been the basis of the pros?
perity of the firm In the past.
