Solders of this bank will be held at ll o'clock this
morning, at No. ie Broad street, to consider the

THB LIGHT-FINGERED GENTRY.-Bver since

In Georgia and Alabama. An elderly lady reached
Augusta last Saturday, on her way to Chester?
field County, bi this State, from Montgomery,

THE Qoo WARRANTO CASES.-It ls under?
stood that the Chief Justice has adjudged thc re?
spondents In the quo warranto cases guilty of a
contempt in not obeying the order of the court,
heretofore made. He retains thc motion for his
farther order, not .desiring to direct an attach?
ment until his decision on the quo warranto ls
rendered by the Supreme Court. No extended
.pinion ls rendered.
Pr/soHASB OP A GOLD MINS.-On Tuesday,
the ?th rnstant, the valuable mineral farm, con?
taining SOS aeres, known as Lorton's Gold Mine,
was purchased for $1700 by Mr. John B. Cochran,
with the intention of working lt. Prior to the
-war, tats mine, situated near Perry ville, a station
an the Blue Ridge Railroad, was worked by
negroes. It possesses every convenience for
its working. The work will be pushed rapidly
Coso KER'S INQUEST.-Coroner Whiting held

.aver tko body of a seaman who had been injured
ky a fall from the masthead while the vessel was
at sea. He had been sick for some time, and the
Jory returned a verdict in accordance with the
The jury on the murder case will convene to-day
at 10 o'clock, and as the witnesses are allon hand
a verdict will probably be rendered.
A LUCKY ESCAPE.-While Dr. Ogler, Sr.,
wai driving out ta his buggy on Sunday after
soon, accompanied by his servant, the axle
snapped In two. The doctor and his servant were
both thrown ont, and the horse, finding itself un?
controlled, darted off at rapid pace, and went a
considerable distance before it could be stopped.
The doctor and his servant, we are happy to say,
escaped with only a few slight bruises and a
startling fright, the buggy being broken to pieces.
THE CASE or MR. CHARLES CAHX.-A New
York dispatch states that Mr. Cahn, the broker,
er this city, whose recent arrest in Kew York for
alleged forgery has already been noticed, has
succeeded ID vindicating himself. It appears
Skat ke had sent fonds to New York to meet his
?rafts, but reached that city In advance of the
stoney. His draft for $lo.coo was dishonored and
ne was arrested. Satisfactory explanations were
made before Judge Ingraham and he was released.
PALMETTO LEAVES IN COMMERCE.-Late ad?
vices from England state that there lately ar?
rived la Liverpool from New York 4075 bundles of
palm leaves, weighing forty tons, which were sold
lox Sits currency per ten. The leaves are the
.productor the palmetto tree of the Southern
States, and a large and profitable business, lt is
asserted, has been established bi gathering,
picking In bundles and exporting, what has here -
tai ore been a useless product. In all 7095 bundles
of palmetto leaves have arrived bi Liverpool.
CONFLAGRATION IN FLORBNCE, 6. C.-On Fri?
day night, about 7 o'clock, a fire was discovered
in the bakehouse or Mr. Phillp Buckhelt, Jr., In
Front street, Florence, caused from a defective
Jue in the chimney. Had lt not been for the ex?
ertions of Mr. George A. Howard and the news
soy, John Dart, the whole block would probably
lave been consumed. The Florence fire engine
eompsny were promptly on the spot, bnt the
scarcity of water rendered Its efforts compara?
tively useless. Mr. Buchhelt has sustained no
loss to sis stock, snd the repairs to the building
will cost but a trifle.
AN AMUSING INCIDENT.-On Friday morning
last, while Jim DuBose (colored constable of E. W.
Lloyd, at Florence,) was taking a prisoner to the
Darlington jail, for cow stealing, (said prisoner be?
ing handcuffed and chained to the back of the
buggy,) he lost bis hat accidentally. Jim, ever po?
nte, gave the prisoner the reins and went back af?
ter the hat, whilst Smart, the prisoner, nrged on
the steed at a fearful speed, leaving polite Jim, bat
in hand, far In the distance, a sadder, but we
hope, a wiser man. After driving rapidly for two
miles, prisoner halted the foaming anima), and
siter tearing off the back of the buggy te which
ke had keen chained, took to the woods, leaving
the vehicle a wreck and the constable a wretched
man. Capt E. W. Lloyd, to whom the buggy be?
longs, tua our sympathies.
THE MAGAZINES.-The Eclectic for December
kaa for a frontispiece a portrait of fte famdus Pere
Hyacinthe. Among the many valuable articles
whick lt contains we note especially "France and
tko (Ecumenical Council of 1869," from the
British Quarterly, "Terrestrial Magnetism" from
Chamber's Journal, and the continuation of "Ro?
man Imperialism," by Prrfessor Seeley. This
number closes a volume, and this is a good time
to subscribe to what is unquestionably one of the
most valuable magazines in the country.
The Riverside Magazine for December. Of the
Riverside we have often had occasion to speak.
It is highly sparkling and pure, as full of infor?
mation as amnsement-the best magazine for
young people that we have seen.
Both the Eclectic and Riverside may be had at
FogarnVs Book Repository, King street.
CRUMBS.-Laborers were busy on Saturday
clearing away the debris or the late fire on East
Bay, and the work of rebuilding will soon be com?
. The Insane woman, whose arrest to Augusta
sss been mentioned, arrived in this city on Friday
evening. She is at present In the Roper Hospital,
and, if her mental derangement continues, will
be sent to the Asylum at Columbia. The children
will be sent to the Orphan house.
..One more unfortunate" drummer was arrested
on Saturday, but secured himself by taking out a
li can se.
Ford's dramatic company have arrived, and are
staying at the Pavilion. Miss Laura Alexander,
leading lady ot the company, is at the Charleston.
The white Journeymen carpenters meet this
evening, at the Washington Fire Company's Hall,
to elect a delegate to the Executive Committee
of Workingmen, and to sign the constitution.
The Aiken Hotel has been purchased by some
Northern capitalists, but will not change hands
anti! some time In May. Mr. Anderson, the popu
lar uosr. will remato, to charge.
Tua PLANTERS' AND MKCBANICS' Bum.-We
are authorized to say that the nant era' and Me?
?banles' Bank of South Carolina Ls redeeming its
bills at Its office.
A MOPEL ESTABLISHMENT.-We invite the at?
tention of the friends of THE NEWS m the city and
throughout the State to the excellent facilities
which our office enjoys for the prompt execution
of an kinds of Book and Job Printing. Fully pro?
vided with new type and machinery of the latest
and most approved pattern, and having a large
and carefully selected stock of cards, envelopes
and papers of all qualities, THB NEWS Job Office ls
now prepared to fill orders for every description
of plain and ornamental printing In the very best
manner, anti at rates at least as low as any other
establishment In the Southern States. Call at
Tna NEWS building (up-stairs) and examine our
seale of prices and specimens of our work.
CHEAPER COAL.-Consumers will be gratified
to learn that a very important reduction in prices
occurred in this article at thc auction sale in New
York on Wednesday. The World says: "There
were 70,000 tons sold; the bidding, even at the
low prices that prevailed, was not eager-facts
which show that, In the opinion of the dealers, an
advance la prices ls not to be expected, and that
probably a still further decline may occur. Lump
coal sold as low as $4 OS; steamboat coal at $4 02 j. ;
grate coal at $4 30; egg coal as low as $515;
chestnut at the same; and stove coal as lew as
$715-which ls a decline of about one dollar a ton
on this quality, and a much greater decline on
all the other varieties. As these are the prices for
tons of 2240 pounds, and the dealers sell to their
customers tons of only 2000 pronnds, thc retail
prices will probably not be very much higher, ere
long, than the rates which obtained at this sale."
THK ACADEMY OF MUSIC-Everybody is on
the oui vive for the opening of oar new and beau?
tiful Temple of the Drama, which Manager Ford
formally announces this morning for Wednesday
evening next. The company has been organized
with care and discrimination, aad comprises really
meritorious artists. Miss Alexander, the leading
lady, is an accomplished actress and a charming
and cultivated lady. She belongs to ono of the
leading families in Western North Carolina. Her
father was one of the most brilliant members of
the bar, and her mother a renowned belle of the j
State. The Alexanders, Polks and Grahams are
historic names in North Carolina, and have been
from the date of the Mecklenburg Declaration,
prominent alike in public end private Ufe. One
brother was a distinguish,-J officer of the Confed?
erate navy, and another left thc presldenoy of a
college In Texas to serve la the Confederate army,
which he did with distinction. The Wilmington
Journal, speaking of Miss Alexander, editorially
Still young, and as lt were just entering upon her
duties and studies, she, of course, has still much
to learn. Relined la all that makes the true
woman, thus early la her career she yet hesitates
to give herself up to ber parts. With her early
associations and culture her nature yet shrinks
from too great a display of abandon. But having
overcome these difficulties and having practiced
her volae, and having educated herself la the
stage tricks or business, she wlU doubtless take a
We are sure that Miss Alexander will be warmly
welcomed upon the Charleston boards.

A MONSTER OF THE DEEP.-Those who "go
down to the Bea In ships" are usually famous for
their "fish stories," but it has fallen to the lot of
some colored fishermen of this city, not only to
see, but to capture one of the huge Inhabitants or
the world of water, and secure their trophy upon
terrafirma. The monster was seen near Wappoo
Cat, la shallow water, and was pursued by the
fishermen, who struck him with their oars. Flus?
tered apparently at finding himself in close quar
ten, he beat wildly in every direction to the great
alarm of his assailants, until a lucky flounder
landed him in tuc marsh. He was at once at?
tacked more vigorously, and a fierce engage?
ment ensued, in which he had almost work?
ed his way off the marsh, but was driven back
and dispatched by thrusting an oar into his
blow hole on the top of the head, and
by repeated blows on thc side of the head with an
axe. After the captive had ceased his dying
struggles, he was attached to the boat and towed
to Chisolm's MUI, where with some difficulty the
carcass was elevated to the wharf. A large
truck was secured, and after wrapping the enor?
mous fish In canvas, it was transported to the
Military Hall, escorted by a mixed crowd of gap?
ing wonder-seekers. It was on exhibition on
Saturday in the yard of the Military Hall, and
was visited by great numbers of persons. It is
about eighteen feet la length and four In diame?
ter at the widest part of the body, with a blunt,
square-shaped head, having thc mouth con?
siderably recessed, and furnished with a
range of short, conical teeth some distance
from each other. The eye is small and
duU, with a backward look, and lt has the
blow hole and fins characteristic or the whale
family. The general Impression seemed to be
that the monster was a genuine black whale,
though not full grown. Prefessor Holmes, how?
ever, pronounced it to be the grampus, or which
there are several species, the largest attaining
a length of twenty-five feet. The name grampus
ls supposed to be a corruption of thc French
grand poisson. Specimens have occasionally
been caught off our coast, but this, we believe,
ls the first Instance of one of these monsters
having been known to visit our harbor. The
carcass wiUremain on exhibition ror some hours
this morning, arter which it will be cut np and
tried ror oil. A yield or from one to twa barrels
ls coafldently expected, and, it realized, will be
the first case, as far as we know, of Callee "strik?
At a meeting of the Masonic Fair Associa?
tion, held at the Masonic Hall on the evening of
Wednesday, November 24, 1869, the following res?
olutions were unanimously adopted and directed
to be published In the daily papers :
Besolved, That the thanks of this Association

grateful remembrance their labors In our behair,
and hope that they wUl soon realize that our suc?
cess is their success, and our loss their loss.
Resolved, That the thanks or this Association be
also tendered to John S. Riggs, Esq., president,
and the board or directors or the Charleston City
Railroad Company, for their kind gift of placing
the cars or Melt lines at our disposal, Tree or cost
up to a late hour in the evening.
