THB WIDOWS' HOME IN BROAD STREET.-The
expected box of beautiful articles rrom Switzer?
land arrived yesterday, and notwithstanding the
inclement weather, a number of the articles were
sold almost before they could be 'properly classi?
fied and appraised. One generous gentleman,
who visited thc institntion yesterday, left nearly
$300 in return for articles which ita purchased.
The Home will be open this evening, to-morrow
evening, and Thursday evening, from 4 o'clock
until io. To-night the gentlemen who have kind?
ly resolved upon organization for the benefit of
the Home will meet In one of the rooms of the in?
SNOW.-The murky skies of yesterday
morning were sure signs to the weather-wise of
snow, and these prophets for once were in the
right. About 1 o'olock the flakes began to fall,
and though at first thc performance seemed to
be an imposition on a confiding community, lt
soon increased in volume and violence, and for a
few hours we had a tolerably well executed snow
storm. The ground was barely covered, though
in some sheltered spots the drifts were deep
enough to furnish the material for snow balls,
The sun asserted his supremacy at 5 o'clock, and
the beautiful snow melted from the sight, leaving
the streets and sidewalks in a deplorably muddy
A FLORAL GUIDE.-We have received from
Mr. James Vick, of Rochester, New York, a oopy
of his Illustrated Catalogue and Floral Guide for
1870. This ls the ninth annual catalogue issued
by Mr. Vick, and lt contains all the information
required for selecting choice seeds, together with
lastructtons as to the best manner of sowing and
transplanting. The catalogue ls handsomely Il?
lustrated, and we cordially recommend it to all
growers of flowers, fruits and vegetables. The
Catalogue and Guide ls sent to all who desire it
?or ten cents ; and we may add that Mr. Vick,
rhom we believe to be thoroughly trustworthy,
will fill promptly any orders for seeds and plants
that may be sent to him. Some idea of the extent
of Mr. Vick's business is given by the fact that,
In the busy season, he fills from one to two thou?
sand orders a day. We print his advertisement
FIRE.-Thc alarm of fire was sounded about
hair-past 3 o'clock yesterday morning, and the
-engines were soon on the ground. The fire ori?
ginated in a building on the east side of Anson
street, above George, owned and occupied by Mr.
j. H. Keip as a dwelling and grocery store. When
aroused by the alarm, Mr. Kelp round the store
enveloped In flames, and was barely able to effect
als escape from the burning building. The store
was entlr?ly destroyed, and th? flames were com
munlcateu to the buildings on either side. That
on the south was occupied by Mr. Schlobohm as a
bakery, and was partially cousumed, but the
stock and furniture were saved. The building on
the north was occupied by J. H. Howard, colored,
and was slightly damaged by fire. Mr. Kelp had
Ids building Insured with Messrs. W. B. Heriot A
Co. for $?OOO, and thc stock with Messrs. Colburn
i Howell Tor $2500. The bakery was Insured In
M?'. A. L. Tobias' agencies for $2000. The weather
was bitterly cold and the firemen labored under
many disadvantages, but succeeded in confining
the fire to the buildings where it originated. Dur?
ing ?he fire the steam chest or the Washington
was exploded, but fortunately did no damage.
The fire was nearly opposite St. Joseph's Church,
which for some timo was in considerable danger,
but was saved through the untiring efforts of the
HAMLET AT Tf?E ACADEMY.
Engagement of Mr. Xell Warner, thc
Ir is a moor question whether the subtle
refinements or Hie creations of Shakespeare's
genius may not bc better understood by thc stu?
dent in Iiis closet, than t>y him who only witness?
es their counterfeit presentment as they fret
their hour on thc stage: but certain it is that
every one of thc eager hundreds who witnessed
Hie performance of Hamlet at the Academy of
Music last night, wa? richly repaid all his trouble,
and went away into thc winier streets with his
every anticipation of pleasure far more than ful
lllled. So many years had passed since the Prince
or Denmark had trod thc Charleston boards that
the public were anxious to behold once more thc
tragedy which awed theiryouth or charmed their
mature agc. The graybeards, the city fathers, thc
men who remembered, faintly or vividly, Macrca
dy.Vandeuhoif, and the elder Booth, were ready to
watch and discuss thc newly arrived tragedian.
And, besides these, there were thc younger props
of the community, who knew just enough of thc
Muse to believe that their first beholding of a
Shakespearian play would be an event in their
lives. So the Academy of Music was crammed
from door to roof-tree. The aisles were tilled; no
room was left Tor late-corcers, who were willing
to stand during the i<rrormiince; hundreds or
would-be spectators were turned away from the
doors. In every partieulai the audience was the
best that Charleston has given the drama this
season; and thc tragedy, nearly without excep?
tion, was worthy of thc audience.
Mr. Warner, en his first appearance, created a
most favorable impression, or gracerul and com?
manding presence, his lineaments bear a striking
general resemblance to thc portraits or John
Wilkes Booth, which nre familiar to most of our
readers. His dress was the customary black vel?
vet; but in no other respect did he tie himself to
the traditions of the part. His delivery is clear
and Impressive, showing a rich fund of reserved
power; aud even in the most passionate out?
bursts, there was nothing or the rant In which
tragedians of the Forrest school uri wont ro In?
dulge. Thc style in which the soliloquies were
given was especially striking. While making the
usual points, Mr. Warner contrived to give a new
shade of meaning to many famlllarpassages; and
his .acting was marked throughout by finished
stj-le and evidences of dee.-) thought. These were
seized upon by the audience with evident plea?
sure, and the satisfaction with which his errons
were welcomed was almost too deep to lind ex?
pression in manual or pedal applause.
The Polor-ius of Mr. Parker, like most of his
personations, was an excellent piece of acting;
and, next to Hamlet, was the decided triumph of
the evening. Mr. Wood* played Laertes with
spirit and taste. We wish?we could say as much
for Mr. Read, who was cast as the King, but
who, we thought, was not particularly king-like
either in his make-up or action. His voice, too,
was somewhat mai red by the clumsy addition of
artificial moustaches. Altogether the King was
the weakest point in a pcrformar cc the general
excellence of which lt is a pleasure to commend.
Miss Eldridge, as Ophelia, acted and sang
charmingly. The power and versatility which
this young lady already displays In parts so wide?
ly ditl'erent auger favorably for her future drama?
tic career. Miss Alexander, as the player-Queen,
acquitted herself well, as she always does. Mrs.
Eldridge performed the part of thc guilty Queen
with a spirit that wc had hardly expected from
the "old lady" of the comedies. The "-eenie ar?
rangements and costumes were excellent, and
the play passed otf with a smoothness and eclat
that were as gratifying to the-audience as they
were creditable to the management. s '
Richelieu for To-Night. \jr
To-night Mr. Warner .will appear for the first
and only time In Bulwer's splendid tragedy of
Richelieu. The administration of the great Car?
dinal, whom (despite all his darker quaUties)
Voltaire and history justly consider the true ar?
chitect of the French monarchy, and the great
parent of French civilization, is characterized by
features alike tragic and comic. A weak king
an ambitions favorite; a despicable conspiracy
against the minister, nearly always associated
with a dangerous treason against thc State
these, with little variety of names and dates,
constitute the eventful cycle through which, with
a dazzling ease, and an arrogant confidence, the
great luminary fulfilled Its destinies. Blent
together, tn startUng contrast, we see the grand?
est achievements and the pettiest agents-the
spy-the mistress-the capuchin-the destruction
or feudalism-the humiliation of Austria-the dis?
memberment of Spain. Richelieu himself is still
what he was in his own day-a man of two char?
acters. If, on the one hand, he ls justly repre"
sented as inflexible and vindictive, crafty and
unscrupulous, so, on the other, it cannot be de?
nied that he was placed in times in which the
long impunity or every license required stern ex?
amples-that he was beset by perils and intrigues,
which gave a certain excuse to the subtlest in?
ventions or self-defence-that his ambition was
Inseparably connected with a passionate love for
the glory of his country-and that, if he was her
dictator, he was no less her benefactor. He was
ao less generous to merit than severe to crime
In the various departments or the State, the army
ind the church, he selected and distinguished
thc ablest aspirants-thc wars which he conduct?
ed were, for the most part, essential to the pres?
ervation of France, and Europe itself, from the
formidable encroachments of the Austrian House
-and he left the kingdom he had governed in a
more flourishing and vigorous state thau at any
former period of the French history, or at thc
decease of Louis XIV.
The cabals formed against thc great statesman
were not carried on by thc patriotism of public
virtue, nor the emulation of equal talent; they
were but court struggles, in which the most
worthless agents had recourse to thc most despe?
rate means. In each, we see combined the two?
fold attempt to murder the minister, and to betray
the country. Such, then, are the agents, and
such the designs, with which truth, in the drama,
as in history, requires us to contrast the celebrat?
ed Cardinal; not disguising his foibles, but not
unjust to the grander qualities (especially the
love of country) by which they were often digni?
fied, and, at times, redeemed.

The locket or the District Court embraces thir?
teen cases, which have been continued from the
preceding term. The District Attorney gave no?
tice that he would be ready to proceed to-day lu

T. G. Mackey. A. IL Mackey, William Elliott. John
Pavia, James W. Whipple and Augustus Bollinger,
cfcarged with assault on Customhouse officers
while In dlscha 'c of their duty. Hon. Henry
Buist appeared foi thedclcncc, and stated that his
clients would be ready to answer this morning at
10 A. M. when the court ls opened.
TUE LICENSE BILL.-Thc spebtaTmeeting of
Council called last night resulted in naught, as
most of thc colored members were members of
diff?rent societies that met the same evening, and
it was found impossible to obtain a quorum. Thc
License bill was subjected to a close scrutiny at
thc caucus meeting, and was pruned of many of
the more objectionable features. As amended, it
was expected to pass the bill through to its final
reading, and make it operative as soon as possi?
ble. This has beeiiTrustrated by thc failure of the
two last special meetings, but it will bc pressed at
au carly day.
Among the amendments proposed that which
affected the brokers is important. An auction?
eer's license has been reduced to $50; a broker's
ls Axed at the same amount, but brokers in
money and real estate, and dealers in exchange,
bankers and bank agents, aU remain at $100. As
these bunches are all combined in thc general
brokerage business, the grievances complained of
by that class have been but slightly modified. As
an offset to the reductions made in the brokers'
and auctioneers licenses, the banks will be re?
quired to pay $?00, instead or $100, thc original
Doctors and lawyers will have to pay a license
of $25. Mechauics will bc exempt, but ir the bos?
ses should, as is not unlikely, happen to be me?
chanics also, they will have to pay according to
the number or their employees. Those employ?
ing rrom one to fourjonrneymcn, will be charged
$10 ror thc privilege, and those that employ a
largor number will be compelled to pay $25. The
bill assumes that none but master mechanics
would employ mechanics, and the term mechanic
refers to every trade, including barbers.
Council will undoubtedly pass a license bill, one
of some description, calculated to raise as large
an araouut ns possible. They say the treasury is
bare and must be replenished spocdilj-, and thc
new bill will be the most effective collecting agent
they can obtain.

When you are exhausted by overwork of head

ing, don't drink whiskey or any intoxicating
thing, whether under the name of Bitters or other?
wise. Such articles give Just as much strength
to your weary body and mind as the wb?p gives
to the jaded horse, and no more. Aloohollc stim?
ulants are injurious to nerve health, and are al?
ways followed by depressing reaction.
DODD'S NERVINE AND INVIGORATOR
Is o Tonic and gentle stimulant, which ls not at?
tended by reaction. What it gains for you it
maintains. When lt refreshes body or mind, it
refreshes with natural strength that comes to
stay. Wc are not recommending teetotalism in
the interest of any faction; but long and extend?
ed observation teaches us that he who resorts to
the bottle for rest or recuperation, will find, as he
keeps at lt, that he ls kindling a fire m his bones
which will consume like the names of perdition.
Turn from it. Take a tonic that will refresh and
not destroy. DODD'S NERVINE ls ror sale by all
