WOLFISH DOINGS.-Yesterday afternoon
about half-past 3 o'clock, the historio comers of
Broad and Meeting streets were the scene of
lively encounter between Lafayette Wolfe and a
Mr.'Samson. Wolfe had evidently been sampling
some groceries and was more belligerent than
when he played marshal to a Fourth of July negro
procession. Samson encountered Wolfe and
asked him a few questions, but was not belli
.ase. Wolfe, however, objected to being spoken
to by "a damned Democrat," and threatened to
"slap his Bead off," and having made a pass at
lee aforesaid head, the- owner thereof coolly
knocked kim down. Wolfe' arose, breathing
threatenings and slaughter, and drawing a pistol
of huge dimensions west for the luckless Sam
son. The latter snuffing morphine in the tainted
gale fled for his life, Wolfe following in hot pur
salt. . The chase was a loag and devious one, lead
lng through the halls of the Courthouse and end
inf in the Gaardhouse, where Wolfe was easily
Watered, sa he asserted that one man could hold
him, but lt would take three to manage his oppo?
nent An investigation Into the case showed that
Wolfe, grieving over the result of the meeting of
the previous evening, had sought to drown his
sorrows tn whiskey. Samson, who was appa
rently ia the right, suffered only in thc particular
of a torn coat, which was rent by Wolfe at the
belaning of the melee.

listen to T. J. Mackey.

i caU published Lu thc daUy papers. On motion.
Richard Teadon, Esq., was called to the chair.
He stated that the object of the meeting was to
to hear the reports of the President and Board of
Directors, and to take such action as was deemed
necessary to resume business. Messrs. J. D.
Aiken, W. M. Lawton and M. P. O'Connor A cre
Appointed a committee to ascertain if a quorum
was present. Arter an investigation, it was re?
ported that no Quorum was present, but upon
tho statement of Mr. George A. Trcnholra and
ithors that the present meeting of stockholders
iras the largest ever held for years, and that no
juorum had been obtained for twenty years, it
was determined to proceed wiih the business.
Mr. W. M. Lawton, from thc Board or Directors,
then read their report, which heartily endorsed
the action of Mr. C. T. Lowndes, thc president of
thc bank, and commended thc ability with which
the affairs of thc b.in k had been managed since thc J

mously, and the thanks of the stockholders re?
turned to the president and cashier for their able
management of the finances of the bank.
Mr. H. h.. DcL&n offered a resolution that the

CHARLESTON, May 16,186?.
Mr. J. B. RUSSELL, one of our careful and Intel?
ligent Pharmaceutists and Apothecaries, has sub?
mitted to my examination thc formula for the
preparation of a Soothing Cordial prepared and
vended by him.
It affords me pleasure to express a favorable
opinion of Ita safe and efficient adaptation to the
particular cases of thc diseases of children, which
it is designed to relieve.
E. GEDDINGS, M. D.
Having had occasion to prescribe RUSSELL'S
Soothing Cordial iu severe esses of Bowel Com?
plaints in children ami delicate females, I have
been much pleased with it? effects. I cousldcr lt
a valuable medicine In all cases, in which it. may
bi- advisable to avo 'i thc use of anodyne, and par
Ueulorty ior family usc, an it ta perfectly safe.
W. T. WKACG, M. D.
CHARLESTON, S. C., isca.
Dear Sir-I have used your Soothing Cordial for
Diarrfcosa In teething children, and find it a very
excellent preparation, lt IUM :i great advantage
over most preparations of the kind In containing
no Opium or Narcotic.
When ttics?; are required they can bc added In
proportions applicable lo the case.
I therefore can recommand Ifs use in thc affec?
tions for which lt Ls designed.
Respectfully yours, ic,
T. L. OGIER, M. D.
CHARLESTON, S. C.. 18C8.
I certify that I have most successfully used
RUSSELL'S Soothing Cordial tn thc Summer Com?
plaints Of infants. He has fully exhibited the in?
gredients of his remedy, and the tedious method
ot preparation. I recognize tho prescription
containing no anodyne whatever-as a most safe
and efficacious one in bowel affections of condron.
When much pain or restlessness attends the affec?
tion, doses of Paregoric can be added to the pre?
scribed doses of the Cordial according to thc age
of the patient? The compound, though more
often, acts in an efficient manner without any ad?
dition of anodyne.
In the Diarrhoea of the aged, tn increased doses,
lt ls of great value as a remedy; never disagree?
ing with tho stomach-Increasing appetite, im?
proving digestion, and acting ai a slow but effi?
cient astringent agent.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S. C., 1868.
Afr. /. B. Russell :
DEAR SIR-1 have used your Soothing Cordial
for children extensively in my practice, and most
cheerfully testify to Its merits. I have found lt,
without an exception, to accomplish all lt claims,
and consider it superior to anything in cse for
Its freedom from anodyne of any kind recom?
mends it as a perfectly safe preparation tn the
hands of mothers and Inexperienced nurses.
