THE Loss OF TUE LIGHTNING.-Tiie Savan?
nah Republican oryesterday says: "We are indebt?
ed to Captain Fitzgerald, or the coasting schooner
Mail, which arrived yesterday afternoon rrom Ash
epoo. for thc following facts in reference to the
loss of the Lightning: He reports that at seven and
a half o'clock yesterday morulng he sighted the
Lightning ashore on the reer at Calarigue Sound;
had a signal of distress flying; bore down and
hove to. sent a boat ashore, took one or the crew
- off the reer, the rest remaining by the vessel. One
man was lashed to thc mast, she beim? high and
dry. Last night the sea was breaking over the
vessel, wasldng her hatches and deck load off,
sails, Ac. She will prove a total loss. The crew
were all saved by a launch belonging to Hilt n
Head, Captain Fitzgerald being unable to go
further in. The Lightning was about twenty tons
measurement, and was engaged in the coasting

MARKET IMPROVEMENTS.-The portion of the
market on the west side or East Bay has been de
signed by the commissioners for the fish stalls,
and the bricks and pavement were removed yes
terday to prepare for the transferor the stalls
from the opposite side of the street. When the
street was widened in rront of the new custom
house. Council agreed to cede certain property to
aid the widening of the street. Thc present Ash
market is on the new line, and will have to be re
moved before the street can be Improved. The
move now In progress will not only famish the
community with a good fish market, but the re?
moval of the bulldlug will add greatly to the ap
pearance and business capacity of East Bay. The
new fish market will be arranged In a more conve- .
nient manner than thc one that has done service I 1
for so many years. The pavement will bc graded
properly, and drains built that will carry off the
slops and refuse water. As the market is under
the same shed that extends from East Bay to
State streets, lt will in this respect be a great ac?
commodation to all housekeepers.
THE ORGAN OF HOLY COMMUNION CUCRCH.
Last night the Church of thc Holy Commnulon,
. on Ashley street, was filled to overflowing by a
fashionable audience, collected to hear the trial
of the new organ recently constructed for that
church. An alcove had been built to thc north of
the church, adjoining the vestry-room, and the
organ was furnished by Messrs. Steer A Turner,
of WestneUJ, Mass., especially for the niche. The
alcove 13 trumpet-shaped, and the works o? the
-organ flt compactly In the recess, allowing the
full volume of sound to be heard In the church.
Tho outer pipes are drab-colored, rel eved by
gilding and fancy painting, while the wood work
is in imitation of maple. It has two key-boards,
and a pedal of twenty-seven notes, and combining
the different sounds that render the music of an I ;
an orgaa so peculiarly adapted for religions pur- 11
poses. It was tested last night by several of the
professors of music and organists of other
?churches in the city, and the melody produeed 11
?showed not only the full power of the instrument,
i)ui gave thorough satisfaction to both the builder
and the congregation. The organ was furnished
-at a cost of about $3500, and was so constructed
ns to exactly fiU the place designed for it, leaving
nothing to offend the eye, but adding greatly to
the appearance of the church. No organist has
been engaged as yet, and the choir ls now being
ACADEMY OF MUSIC-KENILWORTH. - The
.performance at the Academy ot Music last eve
liing is worthy or very special commendation. The
new barlesque or ' Kenilworth" ls one or thc best
we have ever seen, and lt was put upon the stage
with a splendor and completeness or scenery and
. costume, which reflect the greatest credit upon
the management. The effect of the piece de
p.uds much more upon the song3, dances and
-corni? situations, with which it abounds, than
upon its verbal hits and witticisms, many of
which being calculated for the atmosphere of the
Strand, for which theatre the play was originally
written, are "caviare to the general." As produced
last night, however, "Kenilworth" was a decided
success, and numerous encores testified to the
satisfaction of the audience. The Chapmaas
have certainly the faculty or gathering around

In the opening farce of "A Quiet Family,"
Bishop was, as usual, overpowering. His abilities

like to see him in some or the more legitimate

even more effective than in thc broad rarcc or his

DEATH OE HEXRY PLACIDE.
Henry Placido, the well-known comedian,
who made his Urst appearance on thc Charleston
boards more than sixty years since, died at Baby?
lon, L. L, on Sunday last. We take the following
sketch of his life and professional career from thc
Sew York Times or Monday:
Henry Placido, comedian, died at Babylon, L.
!.. yesterday. Ile was born In Charleston, S. C.,
September 8,17uo. Bis father and mother were
both performers, the former the manager of n
company of actors who travelled through the
South, giving dramatic entertainments, lit? cur?
liest authentic record or Mr. Puebla's appearance
on the stage exists in a play bill, (now hanging in
the parlor of the deceased actor,} ol' the Charles?
ton company, dated Friday evening, October 14,
180S. in which Master H. Placide appears in two
pieces, viz: As David in thc "Blind Bargain," and
ns Flor?o di Rosal vi in the "Hanter of the Alps."
Ile was then only nine years old. His second ap?
pearance in New York was as Zckicl Home?
spun, in the "Heir-at-Law," and as Dr. Du
bloncour in thc .afterpiece of the " Bild?
etet of Blunders." at the old Park- Thea?
tre in 1S23. From this time until 1S43, a
period or twenty years, he was thc constant
favorite or the Kew York public. In lSlo Mr.
stephen Price. Simpson's partner in the manage?
ment or the "Park," died, leaving some engage?
ments unfinished that he made with i>opular per?
formers on the other aide or the waler. Placide,
it Simpson's request, crossed the Atlantic in the
diip Gladiator, to re-engage thc performers, and
the consequence was the appearance at the Purk
of Braham, the famous tenor singer; Tyroue
Power, Fauny EUsIer, Mr. and Mr. Woods. Buck
stone, and other foreign actors of thc highest
merit. During this visit to thc Old World he did
not play lu England or elsewhere. He re?
turned in August of the same year. This
period may bc culled thc brightest days of
the "Old Park." Thc far-famed stock"com
paiiy was in its perfection then, and being
isslsted by such actors as wc have spoken ol'
ibovc, with Dowton, Hackett, Mrs. Fitzwilliam,
Burton, the Segaba Operatic Company, the Mar?
tyn Operatic Company, Forrest, charlotte Cash?
man, Browne, Barnes, W.H. Williamsand others
)f great celebrity besides, lt might surely have
contested thc palm with any theatre whatever.
Vu unfortunate event in the beginning or tuc fol
owing year cast a gloom over the theatrical
tvorld, from which it has never entirely recover
id. This was the sailing of thc ill-fated steamer
President, on which poor Power embarked, and
tpon which Placide had intended to make his
lecond trip to England. Thc President sailed
'rom New York on thelOth of March, and was
lever more heard of. The circumstances that led
Placide to give up his trip by this steamer appear
>o curious that they are worth relating. He was
not going out to ful tl 1 an immediate engage?
ment, bat, on the contrary, he might remain idle
in London for some months before there would
lie an opportunity for him to appear lu the favor?
ite parts with Power. But among the passengers
tm the vessel were to be many particular friends,
ia well as Power, and he hoped to make the voy?
age in their company. I had made all my ar?
rangements to go, said he, when Forrest came to
my room and persuaded me not togo. He thor?
oughly hated England and Englishmen, and
imoug the latter reckoned Power. "Why go out
jf America, where yon are appreciated, to a coun?
try where you will not be-where you will not
sven have a fair chance? Assn American, the
:rltlcs will show yon no mercy," J.e.. Ac. 1 told
dm I might as well go there us stay herc; I had
ii ven up ray engagement at the Park and co>dd era
ploy my leisure time ia Europe very pleasantly in
ooking at thc cariosities of the Old World. "Yes,"
tie replied, "and spend all your money before you
jet an engagement ! Why not make some money
rere before you go-ir you must go*"' To which
[ replied that I had no prospect or playing here
times were dull-no theatrical prospect before
me. Te this he said that he was just from Rich?
mond, where he had had a very succes>rul cn
lagement. "They will be glad to have you there.
I know." he continued, "and ir you will say the
word, I will write to the manager ut once, ami
no doubt he will make nattering terms with
f ou." Seeing I hesitated, he said. "Come, I will
write a letter to him myself;" and without more
tvor Js he sat down, wrote thc letter and carried
tt off with him. In a fow days he brought me a
very polite answer rrora thc manager, asking
terms, Ac, and as I had secretly determined to
jo to England in the President, come what
would, and wished to cut short Forrest's friendly
Importunities, Ljiamed terms far beyond any?
thing 1 had everSbceived or expected to receive.
Forrest was not surprised at it, although my
modest rrice was "half the house." and advised
me to sit down at once and write thc manager to
that effect. I tried to put off the writing, but it
was of no use. Forrest insisted that I should do
lt at once, aud for Tear that I should not mail thc
letter after I had written it, actually carried lt
tiimseir to the New York Postoitlce, then in the
little Rotunda in the park. Thc letter went, the
ins wer came back, and my terms were accepted !
So the steamer Bailed witbont me. Power said he
was sorry to lose my company, but congratulated
me on my good luck. On the first of May follow?
ing I took passage by the Great Western to join
Ulm in London. Upon arriving at Liverpool the
drat thing we asked the pilot was, "Have
rou heard of the President i" "No!" was
.he answer. That was the last of poor
Power. Placide played a star engagement lu
Loudon, where he was subject to some few not
unfriendly criticisms, as Forrest had predicted,
ind even the comparisons made to his disadvan?
tage were with giants of the stage; his Slr Peter
was compared with that of Farren, and his Touch?
stone with that of Fawcett. On his returu lo
Sew York, Placide reappeared at the Park in Ser
tember, aud continued to play there until 184?.
He there terminated a long career of unequalled
popularity at this time-honored edifice, and re?
tired for a time to his quiet country resilience at
Babylon, L. I. Since then, he has played in the
varions cities in the Union, lils last engagement
Seing at the Winter Garden in 1865, where he
played Corporal Cartouche with undiminished
spirit in his 66th year.
A NKW INSURANCE COMPANY.-We print in
another column a report or the proceedings or a
meeting or the trustees of the "Policy-Holders'
Life and Tontine Assurance Company,"' held In
this city yesterday. The company was fully or?
ganized, and the president, vice president and
?ther officers were elected. Mcwilliam McBur?
ney, the president of the company, is known
throughout the State as a gentleman of ability
ind spotless Integrity. General E. P. Alexander,
the vice-president and actuary, was a gallant and
iccomplished soldier, and is well titted to dis
?harge successlully the duties of civil life. Upon
thc committees are our leading bankers and some
>f our most eminent merchants.
The scheme or thc new compauy is an admlra
:leonc. It is sufficient to say now that: 1. Thc
company ls purely mutual, so that all thc profits
will be divided among the Insurers. 2. No policy
:an be forfeited by default of payment of pre?
miums. 3. Where the sum insured ls forfeited for
violation of contract, the amount of premiums
paid the company ls returned to Hie representa?
tives of the insured.
A MODEL PRIVATE DWELLING.-Dr. B. A.
Roderlgnes has receutly erected, on thc site of a
former dwelling, one of the finest houses of its
size that Charleston can boast. The new build?
ing races the Circular Church on Meeting street,
ind is two stories in height, with an ornamented
front surmounted by an arch, and the whole
Snished lu the highest degree known to the arch
tcctural profession. The lower story ls used as a
store, and ls twenty-five feet front, by eighty
feet deep, with a height of celling or fourteen feet.
A cellar seven feet deep nins the whole length of
the story. The store ls entirely separate from
the other portion of the baildlug, and has every
sonvenience within Its own enclosure. In the
rear ol thc store are the dining room, pantry
ind kitchen. The latter is furnished with
;very facility for properly manipulating a dinner,
ind is one of the most perfect in its different de?
tails that could be Invented. Up-stairs arc the
private apartments of the family, the parlors and
he reception and operating rooms or the Docior.
)ncol these tooms has been fitted ap as a labora?
tory, where everything relating to dentistry is
)repared for the mouths of thc patients. The
olding doors in this part of thc building arcfor
llshed with patent lock3 that are very ingenious.
Thc entire building is finished throughout in
he'most perfect manner. Na detail, however
ninntc, ls wanting, and it is without exception
he finest house erected since the war. The
itreet entrance opens through a vestibule on the
>iazza, from which access is had to any part of
he hon3e. Thc vestibule is perhaps the principle
eature, and deserves nitre than passing atten
ion, as the walls and ceiling are frescoed and
he fleor inlaid with mosaic tiles. Mr. C. J. Haru
iton, thc scenic artist, who has charge of this
lortion of the work, has designs of the arts and
cienccs, the seasons and other emblematic
Igures, that arc to be placed on the walls. Thc
loors openlug on the street have large oval glass
s, the outer one bearing Dr. Roderigues' name
ut in the glass.
The entire wood-work, mouldings, Ac, were
urnished by Mr. Vf. P. Russell, and were made in
his city. Mr. T. J. Knauff was thc snperintcn
lent or the building, and the gas aud water-fix
urcs were furnished by Mr. W. F. Paddon, the
inning by Mr. F. C. Due. the plastering by Mr. II.
f. Gruver, and the brick-work by Mr. Martin. The
dans were drawn under thc supcrvi-ion of Dr.
todrigues, who designed most or the improve
nents, and has secured for himself one or the
nost commodious and elegant structures iu thc

ARRIVAL OF A FRENCH SLOOl'-OF-WAR.
Execution of President Sainare.
Yesterday afternoon Hie French steam sloop
of-war Lc Limier, Captain Conte, six days from
Port-au-Prince, came to anchor at quarantine,
below the city. Her arrival attracted much at?
tention, but it was not until after the return of
thc health officer, Dr. Lcoby, who visited thc
sloop as soon as she came np, that any particu?
lars about her could bc ascertained.
Le Limier has been stationed for some time at
Port-au-Prince, Tor thc purpose of giving protec?
tion to thc lives and property of French citizens,
during the turbulent scenes of the revolution.
At Port-au-Prince, the crew were attacked by
yellow fever and fifty of ttie number died, ns well
as thc chief surgeon and first lieutenant. Every
effort was made to restrain the ravages of '-Yel?
low Jack," but as the sloop could not leave her
station, it was impossible to drive it off entirely.
Proper sanitary measures, however, checked the
disease, and Le Limier has now no serious cases
aboard. The sick are convalescent, and Dr.
Lebby reports "no more danger.-'
Le Limier brings thc intelligence that Presi?
dent Sainave, who had been for some time strug?
gling, with varying success, against the rebellion
in Hay 11, and whose cause was reported to be
desperat Ay thc latest advices, was captured by
his enemies a short time before Hie sailiug of Lc
Limier and shot.
Five prominent negro officials, who held ofllec
nuder Sainave, took refuge aboard Le Limier, aud
arrived in her. One of them was a gaeenilissimo
ol Salnave's forces;-another-a venerable ecclesi?
astic l-was Salnave's private secretary; a third
was the captain or Port au Prince. They are all
of them s tal wart negro fellows, fall blacks.

DEAD-HEAD PRIVILEGES.-At the benefit ten?
dered Manager Ford by the citizens ot Charles?
ton, some time back, thc Tree list was suspended
by request, and every one who attended paid
cheerfully, with, perhaps, the one exception of
Lieutenant Phlllppy, of the detectives, who de?
clined to pay, and, on being refused admission,
threatened to have the theatre closed. Nothing
more was thought of this empty flourish nb til
Tuesday night, when Lieutenant Phi lippy de?
manded admission, which was rclused unless he
could show a pass. This was not done, and thc
next step ir. the proceedings was to summon
Muuagcr Ford, Mr. Levin, the treasurer,
and the doorkeeper, before thc Mayor's Court,
yesterday morning, lo answer to the charge of
refusing an officer admittance In the theatre, a
public place, on business. The Mayor very sen?
sibly dismissed the charge, and the mutier ended.
Manager Ford claims that the dead-head and
free-list tickets arc favors that arc usually given
by the .manager of a theatre, who, however, re?
tains Tull power to decide who shall bc bcuclitted
by his liberality._ _
