Tooke ls now canvassing the city for subscrip?
tions to the one hundredth edition of "Gunn's
New Family Physician, or House Book of Health,"
a work highly recommended by thc Southern and
Northern press. It contains a description of all
thc various diseases of the country, their symp?
toms, progress and character, together with ap?
propriate treatment for each disease, generally
with simple and safa remedies. It also contains
a complete description of the anatomy and physi?
ology of the human syttcm, with a complete ma?
teria medica, and supplementary treatises on
domestic and sanitary economy; making in all a
large octavo volume of over twelve hundred
pages. The author, Dr. John C. Gunn, published
about twenty-five years ago a book entitled
"Gunn's Domestic Medicine," which in a few
years reached a sale of one hundred thousand co?
pies. His new work, now before us, ls on the
same plan, but much larger. It ls written In fa?

r Ali ADE OF THE POLICE*
SUPREMACY OF SIXTEEN SHOOTER?.
Outrageous Violation' of Z.avr and De?
cency by the Chletf of Polit e.y
At the meeting of City Council on Tuesday
night the Mayor and Alder tu en were invited to
attend a review and inspection of the police force
on thc following day. This singular request iras
evidently made alter the matter had been jointly
arranged between the Mayor and thc Chi*'.'of Po?
lice, as thc sequel abundantly proves. The invi?
tation was graciously accepted liv Council, and
on yesterday that immaculate body had the pleas?
ure of witnessing thc martial bearing or their
model police The force was marched and coun?
termarched in llroad street before thc ad?
miring eyes or the councilmen and a number
or colored juveniles, who were attracted by the
music. Arter a variety of evolutions, which were
doubtless satisfactory to thc reviewers, thc corps
was formed into two platoons, Captain Hendricks
assuming thc chief command, and Lieutenants
Chapman and Tart each heading a division. Un?
der this leadership the battalion was headed for
broad street, and the doughty chief, thinking
that he was monarch of all he surveyed, marched
through the centre of thc street, nttcrly regard?
less or the inconvenience to citizens and the In?
terruption ol travel.
When near the corner of Church street thc
police were again countermarched, and thc cider
becoming disgusted at the proximity of a King
street car which was following lils cohorts, shook
his sword in the face 01" the conductor, and or?
dered him to keep at a respectful distance, and
not to interfere with thc parade or he would be
arrested. As the car was going in an opposite
direction the threat was a useless display or
authority, lt was impossible-for thc car to pass
the body or men though they were impeding
travel ami interfering witlt tiie public.
Arter leaving broad street the police were
marched up Meeting, still occupying the centre of
the street. When near Cumberland street, at a
few minutes past one o'clock, they were over?
taken by car No. 7, of the King street line. This
car was Ulled with passengers and was somewhat
behind time: yet, notwithstanding the appeals of
thc conductor to thc captain and his subordinates
to grant them the right of way, the ranks re?
mained closed and no answer was returned. The
car was compelled to roilow thc Winchester rifles
at a slow walk until it reached Burns' lane, when,
in response to direct appeals from the-conductor,
Mr. Roumillat. and the driver, Mr. Stratton, Cap?
tain Hendricks came forward, and, wavlug his
sword In an excited mannest ordered thc arrest
of the driver. This'was promptly ctTected, aud,
thinking de.ubtless that his power was unlimited,
he ordered some of his myrmidoms to take charge
of the car. Thc conductor, however, assumed
the reins, and the police proceeding up Meeting
street, the car was released from the unpleasant
Mr. Stratton wa3 taken at once to the lower
station-house, where he was confined in the
guard room. Mr. Roumillat reported thc pro?
ceedings to Cap'ain Slgwald, thc superintendent
of the rond, and be repaired to the Guardhouse to
effect the release of Mr. Stratton. A depositor
$20 as security was demanded, and ?Ir. Slgwald
went to the company's office to obtain this
amount. During his absence Captain Hendricks
returned to the Guardhouse, and. for sonic unex?
plained reason, ordered Mr. Stratton to be con
lined in a cell, from which he was released upon
the appearance of Captain Slgwald aud the de?
posit of the security demanded. From recent ex?
periences it issarc to assert that the City Railway
Company will not see the $20 returned to then*"
coffers, as all is tish that goes in the police net.
A MODEL FEAST
was, after thc manner of thc present Council,
a suitable dewe to thc graud display of thc day,
and two tables were spread. That in thc parade
room was assigned to the Mayor and Aldermen,
the officers or police and city offlcials, while thc
high privates and hoi poUoi were served in the
barracks. The collation had been prepared with?
out regard to cost, and the supply was equal to
the demand, the fluids receiving the especial at?
tention or the revellers. Rumor states that the
cost or the whole affair ls about $300, which will
have to be deducted from the City Treasury aud
entered on thc refreshment account. Thc $20
security demand of the City Railway will help on
the cause, and the whole amount will, In one way
or another, be taken from the pockets of thc
ROMEO ANO JULIET.-The immortal love
poem of "Romeo and Juliet," worthy almost
to have been the death-song of "The Swan or
Avon," was produced last evening to a large and
appreciative audience. The deepest as well as
thc softest chords of passion are struck in this
tragedy into so harmonious an accord, that it is
perhaps one or the most difficult tasks or thc
mimic art to tlx and yet to bleud the Heeling
moods which Shakespeare has so wonderfully de?
picted in the written play, lt would scarcely be
honest to say that this task was executed last
evening witli perfect success, wlteu so much is
required not only from the main, but from thc
mluor characters or the drama. Taken as a
whole, however, the performance was highly
meritorious, and sonic ol the roles deserve very
Mr. Warner brought to his impersonation or the
amorous, ill-starred "Romeo" a delicacy, grace
and spirit which could hardly have been expect?
ed Dom the robust Turee of his "Shylock" and
"Othello." Mr. O'Neil, in the delicate and impor?
tant role ol "Mercutlo," achieved a most grati?
fying success, and was in all respects commend?
able, especially in that crucial test or thc part
the famous death sceuc. Miss Eldridge made a
very gracelul and pretty "Juliet," and, although
not entirely compassing the part In Its breadth
and height or passion, she yet infused into it a
tenderness that was never lack-a-daisical, and a
pathos that never degenerated Into caut.
The French have a proverb which being Inter?
preted, says that "when one is dead itTsror a long
time." The adage ls doubtless very generally
true, but the audience last evening put it to open
shame by calling'"Juliet aud her Romeo" before
the curtain, immediately after their untimely
A FREE MONKEY Snow.-One of thc mon?
keys attached to the show of living wonders now
being exhibited at the Market Hall to thc melan?
choly sound of a hand-organ, escaped from his
cage and by the aid of the lightning rod, clam?
bered to thc cornice of the building. Ills public
appearance was soon observed, and Monsieur
Jocko was honored by a levee of juveniles, that
completely blocked up the streets, so that the
services of three policemen were required
to clear a passage. Thc proprietors of thc
show soon discovered their loss, but at?
tempted in vaiu to recapture their property.
Thc nioakcy had his freedom, and though
his movements were limited to thc length
of the ledge he made the most or it, and eluded
bis captors skiffully. Several ladders were reared
against the wall of thc building, and a barrel of
Irish potatoes was exhausted as ammunition,
without producing any effect upon thc little ani?
mal. The crowd were delighted at thc occur?
rence, as they heard the music and saw the best
part or thc show without pay. Thc monkey re?
mained In his citadel until lute In the arternoon,
and dually sought thc shed, from wh'ch place he
was ignominiously dragged back to coulluement.

INGOMAR, THE BARBARIAN.
Tiiis play, which will bo produced at thc Acad?
emy of Music to-night, is a translation from, thc
(.erman, by Sirs. Lovell, who lins completed her
task in so excellent a manner, that to her exer?
tions in the cause of dramatic literature thc Eng?
lish si agc is Indebted for a play, which, like
"Richelieu" amt "HieLady of Lyons," will become
nf tock favorite-the oftener seen, the more at?
Thc parts of "Ingomar" and ..Partlienln," thc
hero and heroine, arc worthy thc talent of a For?
rest and a Cushman, in whose hands they would
prove an attraction which no true lover of the
drama could resist. The story throughout is
beautifully told, and interesting to the last mo?
ment. Thc filial piety of the Greek maiden ls
placed before the audience in n most striking
manner; even love, thc strongest and most irre?
sistible passion of the human heart, is made to
yield to duty; ami when appealed to by her bar?
barian lover, whose savage spirit she has at once
tamed and subdued, who, in a tone of mental ng
ony, exclaims, "Oh, Parthenia, wilt thou leave
nie?" her simple, touching answer is, "My pa?
rents wait their child !" He at once resolves to
be her guide; and, when arrived in sight or Mas
silia, her home, (from whence she strayed to oirer
herself a sacrifice as the ransom of an aged
father,) in the transport of her joy, the sudden
thought recurs, that
"Here wc part !"
Rut not so. Ile goes willi her to thc city; re?
solves fe. lier sake to become a Greek: abandons
even thc dress of his favorite band of Allcinania;
yields up his sword for the handle of thc plough,
and doubly carns his bride; spurns Indignantly
the offer to betray his countrymen, but makes
them at once the friends and allies of thc Greeks;
redeems his bride from slavery, by the sacrifice
of Iiis own liberty, and, when liually rewarded by
thc Coils, for all his suirenug?, he finishes
'.To love 1 owe this bliss."
"To love and honor."
Theu they ni e forever joined
"Two souls with but a single thought
Two hearts that beat as one.'"
The langnage, poetry, and dramatic action cf
this play have not been excelled, If equalled, lu
thc history of the modern drama, and will well
repay the reader for perusal. It was produced
simultaneously in New York, on the evening of
the 1st of December, 1851, at the Uowery and thc
?roadway Theatres, and was triumphantly suc?
cessful at bot h.
EXTRACTS FROM TUE Pi.AV.
PARTHENIA. Mother, yon sang to mc
Of Hero and Leander, aud their love;
And when I asked thee, wondering what love was,
Then, with uplifted hands and laughing eyes,
THOU told'-st mc how, into the lonely heart
Love sudden comes unsought, thou grows and
Feeble at first, like dawn before the sun,
Till, bursting every bond, lt breaks at last
Upon the startled soul with hope and joy.
While every bounding pulse cries, "that ls he
Who carries in his breast my hoare, my soul:
With hun, oh may 1 live, ami with him die !"
So, when old Mcdon ami Evauder came
To woo, I laid my hand upon my heart,
And listened, listened, but no' all was still,
All silent; no response, no voice; and so
I'm wattiug mother, till my heart shall speak !
A pretty name! ami now, Parthenia, tell me
How that which you call love grows In the soul;
And what love is: 'tis strange, but In that word
There's something seems like yonder ocean
PARTHENIA. HOW shall I say? Love comes,
my mother says,
Like Howers in the night-[reach me those vio?
it is a Hame a single look will kindle,
Hui not an ocean quench.
Fostered by dreams, excited by each thought,
Love ls a star from heaven, that points the way
And leads us to Its home-a little spot
In earth's dry desert, where thc soul may rest
A grain of gold In the dull sand of lire
A rorctasie of Elysium; but when,
Weary or this world's woes, the Immortal gods
Flew to the skies, with all their richest girts.
Love stayed behind, sclf-cxllcd for man's sake !
INGOMAR. I never yet heard aught so beauti?
ful 1 But still 1 comprehend lt not.
PARTHENIA. Nor I:
For I have never felt lt; yet I kuow
h song my mother sang, an ancient song,
t hat plainly speaks of love, at least to me.
How goes it ? stay
[Slowly, as trying to recollect.
What love is, if thant would'st Oe taught,
Thu heart must teach alone,
Tico souls with but a single thought,
Two hearts that beatas one.
A nd whence comes tove ? like morning's light,
It comes without thu call:
Ami how dies love?-a spirit bright,
Love never dies at all!
And irhen-and lohen
[Hesitating as uuablc to continue, Ac.
INGOMAR. Go on.
PARTHENIA. Who am I? I am Parthenia
An armorer's child. Indeed, but yeta Greek
Massllia's free-born daughter, nourished
On a pure mother's breast, cradled In the arms
Of beauty and refluement, reared from childhood
In thc holy service of our righteous gods I
While thou-thou art the rude rorest's outlaw son,
A savage-a bamarlan-desolater
or the fair land-a cattlcstealer. Know,
That weat home Hog thieves, and hang up robbers:
INGOMAR, (furiously.) Ah !
TlMARCU. What sayest thou f
Rctray my countrymen !-deceive the men
Who trust me-murder them In their sleep
The men who speak my tongue, who were my
bi ol hers y
TuiARCn. Think of the reward-Parthcnia,
IXCOMAK. Tukcall thy offers back ! take even
For she is all to mc : my heart my soul.
My life ! Vet take her, too; for, had I her,
And nil the happiness thc earth could give,
It were despair, shame, misery and death,
To purchase her by baseness such as this.
PARTHENIA. No, Ingomar; 1 will bear thy sword
INGOMAR. Where ? to the market ?
1'ARTUENiA. No, further-to the gale:
Still further-to the sea-beyond the sea
Over the mountains-over valleys, Hoods
To east and west. Wherever thy path leads,
Wherever thou dost bend thy wandering steps,
So hmg as my heart beats, as my pulse throbs,
So long 1 will go with thee I
INGOMAR. Thou, Parthenia,
PARTHENIA. Ay, will follow thee wherever thou
goest. [Drops the sword und embraces him.)
Thv wav shall be IRV way-thy fate be mine.
Where thou dost build thy house, there, too, shall
My home; thc language that sounds on thy lips,
Tliat will I speak; what pleases thee shall be

Suffer", too, with thee. Thine am I, aud nothing
Shall part us more !
INGOMAR. Before my feet I my slave ! No-as

A WELT. DESERVED COMPLIMENT.
Up lo tho very hour that thc doors of thc
Charleston Academy of Music were thrown open
to the public many estimable persons refused to
believe that this city could find thc capital, the
skill or thc courage required for the erection of a
first class theatre; and when thc accomplished
fact proved that, what to them was Impossible,
had actually been dune, they consoled themselves
by declaring their conviction that thc theatre
would not pay. In doing so they prepared for
themselves another startling surprise. Thc ex?
perience of the season shows that good houses
can be drawn to t he Academy of Music night after
night, and that Charleston can support a first
class place or amusement. Now the flush of novel
tyiias worn off. Thc public go to t hc Academy not
to gratify curiosity, but because they were well
pleased, and want to bc pleased again. They arc
sure or finding order, a good performance, and a
handsome and comfortable building. New scene?
ry and new costumes greet the eye nearly as
often as thc pieces change. Comedy, tragedy,
farce, bnrlesque opera, come and go In turn, and
all the while the reputation or Manager Ford ror
tact, judgment and knowledge of his profession
To Manager Ford thc city owes a debt of grati?
tude. When he leased thc Academy the public
were disinclined to visit a public place of amuse?
ment. Templeton, Whitman and the rest had
taught them a lesson of caution. They were shy
of reposing confidence in new names and races.
All this timidity and natural reserve Manager
Ford has overcome. By always performing a lit?
tle more than he promises, and by refraining from
promising over-much, he has won the trust of thc
people, and In this "quiet old place" has made
converts enough to give him good audiences every
night of thc season.
lt was proper then, for many reasons, Hutt one
of wliom so much ls thought, sliould recejvs at
our hands some token of good will, and this ls
happily expressed in the subjoined correspond?
ence, in which Manager Ford accepts a compli?
mentary benefit tendered him by a number of our
most influential citizens. We need only add that
thc benefit performance will take place on Mon?
day night, and that the play will bc "Much Ado
About Nothing." Mr. Warner will remain li. the

THE CHARLESTON COUNTY AGRICULTURAL
SOCIETY.-A meeting or this Society will be held
at the office of thc "Rural Carolinian." No. 3
Broad street, at eleven o'clock this morning. The
Society ls one or recent formation, but so Impor?
tant are its functions and its objects, that lt ls
already attracting much attention. The officers
endeavor to put the members and thc public in
possession of information relating to agricul?
ture and horticulture, which could not easily be
had without thc assistance of such a society, and
to-day will be delivered a lecture by Professor C.
U. Shepard, Jr., upon "Chemistry as relating to
Professor Shepard ls unselfishly doing his
part to make thc society prosper, and we are
sure lliat his lecture will be both valuable and in?
teresting. At the meeting to-day, Hr. Passmore,
of Greenville, will give any Information that may
he desired about the manufacture of syrup and
sugar from sorgo.
Thc public generally arc Invited to be present
at the meeting, and lt ls hoped that thc members
will bc punctual In their attendance.
Inspector of Naval Store...
CHARLESTON, S.C., January 12, 1870.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
I learn from reading Hie lotter of your
Columbia cortcspondent in to-day's NEWS, that
the petition now berore thc Legislature to have
the otllcc of Naval Stores Inspector abolished re?
presents that the inspectors frequently brand In
rerior grades or turpentine as first quality, and
when called upon to rerund thc money lost by
their carelessness or Incompetency, rcrused to do
so, stating that they were not responsible. This
charge, so far as lt applies to me, ls raise. During
the time I have held the office or Naval Stores In?
spector, I have never branded a barrel of turpen?
tine; that part or the duties or the office has been
performed by another party, who, I presume, is
able to answer for himself. Neither has any de?
mand ever been made upon me to refund money
lost by my carelessness or Incompetency as an In?
spector of rosins. The charge made against me
In regard to underbidding and injuring the coop?
ers' trade, ls equally false lu ail its bearings. I
employ coopers, and make thc fees as low as pos?
sible, in order to benefit thc producer and com?
pete with other naval stores markets. Thc state?
ment that thc merchants and factors or Charles?
ton arc willing to pay six cents per barrel for
coopering, is a misrepresentation. I will venture
to say that no merchant or factor of Charleston,
who has a proper regard for the interests of his
customers, will submit to any such charge, when
it can be done for two and three-quarter cents. H
the bill passes, the office will be abolished In name
but not in reality. The duties will be performed
under a new name, with increased charges, as it
will bc necessary, in order to effect sales, to have
each barrel ef rosin sampled to arrive at the
quality of the same.
