IMPROVEMENTS TO THE ACADEMY OF MUSIC
An old proverb advises the public "to let well
-enough alone," but the proprietor or the Academy
of Music has not been content In furnishing
Charleston with a theatre, but bas already per?
fected several improvements that will add materi?
ally to thc comfort of theatre habitues, and will
make the building more popular than ever. Ad?
ditional passages have been cut In the orchestra
and dress circles that greatly facilitate the in?
gress and egress. Windows are now being open?
ed In the north and south walls, and every effort
will be made to Improve the ventilation so as to
render the theatre a comfortable place of resort
in the hottest weather, ?s. neat iron railing now
secures thc doorkeeper from any outside pressure,

Mr. Wm. B. Seabrook, an old and respected
planter on John's Island, died suddenly on Mon?
day from congestion of the lungs.
KING HENRY IV.-The chief attraction at
the Academy of Music last night was the reap?
pearance on the Charleston boards of Mr. James
H. Hackett, who twenty and thirty years ago
divided with Cooper the suffrages of our play-go?
ing public. The play chosen wu* "The First Part
of King Henry IV," in which Mr. Hackett played
"Slr John Falstaff," a part with which he ls iden?
tified and which he has made pre-eminently his
lt was evident as soon as Mr. Hackett came
upon thc stage that his conception of the charac
ter did not contemplate broad lights and shad?
ows, or strainings after effeet, but would find Ita
perfection in the elaboration of the mauy details
which go to thc making up of the curiously com?
pounded character or thc rascally Knight. Every
word, every gesture, every glanes of the eye, had
Us place In the picture, '?nd the whole formed a
life-like image of "Fat Jack," full or humor, full
.of unction, and fui! of wit. The acting of Mr.
Hackett was keenly relished, and the familiar
scenes with men in buckram, with Dame Quigley.
with the ragged regiment, and with the dead
Percy, were welcomcdwith long rolls of applause.
The audience entered fully into the spirit of the
play, and showed that they knew when ami where
to bestow their praise.
"Harry Hotspur" is an attractive character
.on the stage, and in the hands or Mr. O'Neil full
Justice was done to the petulant and arrogant,
bat generous traits of the young Rebel. Mr.
O'Neil acted with warmth and discretion, and lt
was fancied that in his gestures there was oc?
casionally a soupcon of the young tragedian who
has just left our city. Mr. Wood took thc part of
"Prince Hal," playing with life and spirit. The
minor characters were acceptably tilled.
During the first act Mr. Rose (Poins) fainted
and fell on the stage. Tills caused some li ttle de?
lay and alarm, but it was soon ascertained that
Mr. Rose was recovering, and in the second act
he took up thc broken thread and played to
the end. When he came upon the stage after
his mishap, ho was warmly applauded.
Taken as a whole, the play went off remarkably
well, and "Sir John Falstaff," as he first showed
himself at our Academy or Music, will not soon
bc forgotten. King Henry IV will bc repeated
ANNIVERSARY 0? THE PlIONlX Fl UK ENGINE
COMPANY.-Thc great event of thereat with the
Phoenix boys i.s thc recurrence of their anniver?
sary, anti tito occasion is invariably celebrated by
a supper. Though the weather was unpropitious,
a goodly number of invited guests, with thc mem
bers of thc company, assembled at the Market
Hall last evening, where a :'ea?t. furnished in
Tully's best style, had been prepared. The tattles
were arranged around Hie silica of the mom,
leaving a clear centre for thc busy waiters. Each
seat vas soon filled, and the tempting viands
rapidly disappeared before thc vigorous attack.
After thc substantials had been removed their
place was supplied by thc "flowing bowl,''and
glasses were hued and clinked, and toasts offer?
ed and drank. Thc following were thc regular
toasts of thc evening, which were responded to
by the gentlemen whose names arc mentioned:
1. The Day wc Celebrate. sponded lo by P.
J. Porcher, Esq.
2. Thc Eire Department. Responded to by A.
T. Smythe, president of the Pioneer.
3. Thc Hoard of Kiremasters. Responded lo by a
letter from Chief Nathans.
4. Charleston. Responded to by C. \V. Styles.
3. South Carolina. Responded to by R. Dewar
C. The Press.
7. Woman. Responded to by R. S. Bruns, Esq.
Thc regular toasts were followed by volunteers,
and thc proceedings during the remainder of thc
evening were agreeably interspersed with flashes
of wit, song, sentiment and story telling. Jollity
reigned supreme, and though the elements were
at discord and Pluvias had full sway outside, yet
the merry party lu thc Market Hail made the time
pass rapidly, and did not sepaiate until their an?
niversary day wasnninbcrcd with thc past.
At thc regular meeting, held previous to thc
supper, thc following ^oflicers were elected to
serve for Hie ensuing year: W. A. Kelly, presi?

jar A BODY AND MIND DISEASE.
Such is dyspepsia. Thc stomach and thc brain
ire too intimately allied for thc one to Buffer with
jut the other, so that dyspepsia and despondency
ire inseparable. It may bc added, too, that irri
ation of the stomach ls almost Invariably accom
imu'crt by Irritation or the temper.
The Invigorating and trantiuillzlng operation or
ilOSTETTElt'S BITTERS is most powerfully de?
veloped In cases of indigestion. Thc first effect of
this agreeable tonic is contorting and encourag
ng. A mild plow pervades thc system, the
.hronic uneasiness in thc region or the stomach
s lessened, and thc nervous restlessness which
characterizes the disease is abated. This improve?
ment is not transient, lt ls not succeeded by the
return or Hu- old symptoms with superadded
Torce, as is always thc case when unmcdicated
stimulants are given for thc complaint. Euch
lose seems to Impart a permanent accession of
Healthful Invigoration. But this is not all. Thc
ipcrlcnt and anti-bilious properties of the prepar?
ation arc scarcely secondary iu importance to Its
Louie virtues, if mere ls an overtlow or bile thc
secretion is soon brought within proper limits,
and tr tho biliary organ is Inert aud torpid lt is
toned and regulated. Thc effect upon thc dis?
charging organs is equally salutary, and in cases
or constipation the cathartic action ls just suffi?
cient to produce thc desired result gradually and
wiiaout pain. The BITTERS also promote healthy
evaporation from thc surface, which is particu?
larly desirable at this season when sudden spells
of raw, unpleasant weather arc apt to check the
natural perspiration and produce congestion or
the liver, coughs and colds. The best safeguard
against all diseases is bodily vigor, and this the
Kreat Vegetable Restorative essentially, promotes.

That any sick man survived thc treatment
ol fifty years ago, must bc considered a proof
that human beings are very hard to kill.
The lancet, calomel, cantharldes and drastic pur?
gatives were then the order of the day. Thc phy?
sician played tuto the hands of thc apothecary,
and the unfortunate patient was drenched morn?
ing, noon and night with prostrating medicines.
We live In a more rational and conscientious era.
The importance of supporting Nature in its contiict
with disease ls now understood.'Complaiats in
themselves weakening are no longer aggravated
by artificial depletion. They arc met with TONICS
that rally thc vital powers and enable them to de?
feat thc enemy. Chief among these allies of Na?
ture, ia Us battles with sickness, is
Tills wonderful vegetable restorative is the sheet
anchor of the feeble and debilitated. As a cordial
for the aged and uecrcpid lt has no equal among
stomachics. As a remedy for the nervous weakness
to which the tender sex arc especially subject, lt
is superseding every other stimulant and nervine.
In all cUruatea, tropical, temperate or frigid, it
acts as a speciilo hi every species of disorder
whian undermines the bodily strength and
br aa ks down the7 animal spirits. Wherever it
is introduced it becomes a standard article
-a medicinal staple. Druggists, although their
profit upon lt Ls small, find lt absolntely
necessary to keep a preparation fer which
everybody inquires, and for which nobody
will accept a substitute, it ls to-day the most
popular modlclne In the civilized world.
Extensively as it is advertised, its best ad?
vertisement 1B the beneficial result which
uniformly follows Its use. Every bottle sold in?
sures the sale of at least haK a dozen more. Un?
like other stimulants, it braces and tonifies the
system without exciting undue cerebral action,
Thc cheering effect which lt produces upon the
mind ls not momentary, but permanent. There is
no subsequent depression. It docs not, as Ls the
case with all other stimuli, beget a craving for ex?
citants. On the other hand, lt soothes and calms
the nerves, combining, s trangc as the anomaly may
seem, the qualities of a sedative aud gentle ano
dyne with those of a tonic and lnvigorant.
The perfect purity of all Its ingredients, their
admirable adaptation to the purposes they
are intended to ""subserve, the judicious pro
portions ki which they are combined, and
the scientific skill with which they arc Wend?
ed, render this famous article at once the
most potent and the most harmless of all known
tonlos and alteratives.

We all know that the promiscuous vaccination
indulged in during the late war bred the most vtt
la?ous diseases. Vaccination pus was taken from
the arms of many persons rn II nf scrofulous sores.
Then of course the impurities of the scrofulous
patient was absorbed in the blood of men other?
wise without diseases, and both became infected
alike. Meu, women and children throughout aU
the West are most wofully diseased from this
cause, and knew not until a few months ago, the
origin of it.
