COLUMBIA, February 1.
To-day, at one o'clock, was the time appoint?
ed, after considerable disagreement, for the meet?
ing In joint assembly for the election of an asso?
ciate justice of the Supreme Court, for an unex?
pired term, and for the term of six years, com?
mencing on thc thirtieth of July next. As thc
time approached increased Interest was shown,
and thc friends of thc two caudidates-W. J.
Whipper, representing Beaufort in the House
of Representatives, and J. J. Wright, representing
the sameceunty In the Senate, labored for their
favgtites with renewed zeal. Last night Speaker
F. J. Moses gave an entertainment to Whipper
and his rriends, during which, as I am iuforraed,
he stated that while Wright was perhaps the su?
perior or Whipper in education, yet he denied
him any superiority lu legal attainments; even
had Wright that superiority, that would make no
difference; men had frequently been placed In the
position which Whipper sought, both in Georgia
and South Carolina, who could lay no claim
whatever to legal ability; only to good, sound
common sense, ami yet they had reflected honor
upon themselves and thc offices or trust to which
they had been elevated. Thus encouragcd.if it were
encouragement, Whipper and his friends await,
cd the "hour of trial." Where Wright was at tlds
time and how engaged the busy tongue or rumor
has refused to relate.
At 1 o'clock to-day thc senators ceased squab-"
bling over the bill to extend the limits or Colum?
bia, formed Into line, and, headed by President
Montgomery, marched to thc door of the House
or Representatives, where the sergeant-at-arms or
that body announced to it the "arrival of the
Honorable Senate or South Carolina." The speak?
er or the House ordered the members to rise to
receive the "Honorable Senate," which was done,
and the senators moved to the front of the speak?
er's stend and occupied the seats reserved for
them. Tire president ascended the staud, took a
seat by Assistant Adjutant-General Elliott, chor?
ed, whom Speaker Moses bad called to his chair,
and announced that thc two houses were now
met in Joint assembly for the election or an asso?
ciate justice or the Supreme Court, for au unex?
pired term, and for thc term or six years, com?
mencing 30th July, 1S70, and was now ready to
The most careless observer would have known
that the assembly was for no ordinary purpose.
The unusually large crowd or male and remale
spectators, a majority or the latter colored-the
excited jestures, loud talking, and the general
bastle, betokened that there was something or
moment about to transpire, and In which nearly
every one present was Intensely interested.
Wright and Whipper sat at the same desk, about
midway or the House, a mutual Iricnd between
them. Wright looked as if he were a little
uneasy, yet his fae : wore the usual good-humored
expression. Whipper's face expressed now con?
fidence, then uncertainty, and the candidates
talked freely to each other and to such of their
friends as came up to impart words of cheer.
As soon as the chair announced that nomina?
tions were in order, DeLarge stated that he de?
sired to nominate one who was known and
honored for lils patriotism, justice, and honesty
one who had labored earnestly and persistently
for the Interests of the Republican party-one
who had neither asked or received office or re?
ward rrom that party Tor his arduous and disin?
terested services-his name was-D. T. Cor?
bin. [Laughter.] Comptroller-General Ncaglc
nominated W, J. Whipper, and gave a brief sketch
of the eminent services of his nominee as a sol?
dier; aS a member ol the Constitutional Conven?
tion; or the Legislature, and or his consistent and
earnest labors for the weffare or the colored peo?
ple ; deeming him deservedly flt to fill the
vacafey on the Supreme Bench. Lunney
nominated C. W. Montgomery, whose name
DcLargc afterward, by rennest, Withdrew.
Daddy Cain nominated J. J. Wright, and
then made a long and interesting speech In support
"?f his nominee, detailing thc triumphs of his earl?
ier days, when he graduated ar a college in New
York, was admitted to the bar in Pennsylvania,
and of his services of later days as a legal adviser
of thc freedmen, a member of the Constitutional
Convention, a senator from beaufort, and as an
indefatigable laborer for the rights and interests
or thc colorrd race. Cain piled on the praise until
even Wright blushed to find himself so great.
Cain's speech impressed his hearers very favora?
bly. To counteract the etl'ect or this speech Elliott
secured thc noor, and fairly slobbered Whipper
with praise. He asserted that both of the candi?
dates were his friends, but he believed that Whip?
per was entitled to the place. He was not willing
to admit that Wright's claims were superior to his
favorite, either as regarded his fitness for thc posi?
tion, or his right toit because or services rendered
iu behair or the race bc represented, or to thc Re?
publican party. As soon as Elliott concluded his
remarks, cries or "question,"' Question"' were
raised, and the chair announced that the voting
would be commenced. A colored member there?
upon arose to speak 1n behair or one or the can?
didates, but being rapped down, demanded to
know ir he "hadn't a right to free express.'' Thc
railing or the gavel was hi3 answer, and he drop?
ped into his seat. DcLargc stated that the speak?
ers who had spoken in behair or their ravoritos
had asserted that they were competent to HU the
justiceship, because they were men or honor and
honesty. As- these seemed to be thc require?
ments, he would ask leave to withdraw thc name
jr D. T. Corbin, as lt was lils opinion that lie
wouldn't HU thc bill.
The chair announced that thc joint assembly
would "now proceed to vote Pim voce tor an as?
sociate justice or the Supreme Court to HU th e
unexpired term, ending the 30th day or July,
1870, occasloneu by thc resignal ion or S. L.
H?ge," and that the "Hon. J. J. Wright and Hon.
W. J. Whipper had been put in nomination." The
senators and members had supplied themselves
with rolls of the members of both bodies, and
now sat, pencil in hand, to check ort" as the sena?
tors were called. Thc clerk of the Senate called
the roll of that body first, the vote being as fol?
lows: Arnim, Allen, Barber, Buck, Bieman, Cain,
Dickson, Duncan, Poster, Green, Hayes, Hayne,
Jillson, Johnston, Lunney, Maxwell, Nash, Owens,
Ralney, Reid, Rose, Rodgers, Sims and Wim?
bush (24) voted for Wright. Hoyt, Montgomery,
Swalls and Wright (4) voted ror Whipper. The
total number or senators who voted was 28,
or whom only 4 voted for Whipper. The
clerk of the House then called thc roll
or that body, the vote being as follows: F.J.
Moses, Jr., Speaker, and Messrs. Beaty, Berry,

While the clerks were bu-y counting thc votes
there was Intense excitement among thc friends
or thc candidates. There was very little bustle,
but every indication that there would soon be thc
greatest confusion. There was even a probability
that some would allow their partisanship to pro
vokc them into a quarrel. Great beads of perspi?
ration Stood on the foreheads of several of the
colored members. Some stood up and pulled up
the sleeves of their coats ami pulled them down
again. Others scratched their heads, and a few
stole noiselessly about whispering to their rriends.
When the President arose to announce the vote
nearly all rose with him and bent eagerly for?
ward, as if each feared that'others would hear thc
result before him. The two candidates were
among the Tew who retained their seats.
The President, after stating that sixty-eight
votes of thc one liuudred and thirty-four cast,
were necessary to a choice, announced thc vote
as rollows:- ". .

DISSOLVED IX CONFUSION.
The President then announced that "Hon. if].
Wright, having received a majority or thc whole
number of votes given, wus duly elected as asso?
ciate Justice of the Supreme Court for the un?
finished term ending Suth July. A. D. 1S70." The
friends of Wright immediately commenced to ap?
plaud him, but ceased when thc President called
the House to order, and announced that thejoiut
assembly could proceed to thc election nra roce
foran associate Justice of thc Supreme Court tor
thc term ot six years, commencing 30th July; A.
D. 1S70. As soon as this announcement was
made, there was a scene or great disorder, which
the repeated rappings of thc President's gavel
failed to subdue. Motions to dissolve thc joint
assembly were made and 'numerous points of
order raised, during which the President declared
the joint assembly dissolved.
It ia not probable that the senators will agree
to go into an election for associate justice for the
full term, however much thc members may de?
sire them to do so. I learn that Wright lias re?
ceived his commission aud will take his scat to?
BOW THE DEMOCRATS VOTED.
It will bc seen, by reference to thc votes east,
that with few exceptions thc Democrats voted
Tor Wright. Beatty voted ror Whipper; Keitt,
Wilson nnd Waller ror ex-Governor Orr, and
Doyle Tor Thompson. It was ascertained that
they could no: defeat thc election or cither
candidate by consolidating their vote; and as
Wright was, of the two candidates, much better
fitted ror the place, they voted Tor him. It Is un?
derstood that Wright's friends promjsed thc
Democrats to aid them in electing a Conservative
to Hil the vacancy in the firth judicial circuit, oc?
casioned by the death ol' Judge Boozer, ir they
would vote Tor Wright. Perhaps this had consid?
erable influence upon them in casting their votes
JUDOS OF TUE FIFTH CIUCt'IT.
In thc Senate, to-day, Hayne stated that as the
Court or Common Pleas and General Sessions or
the Firth Judicial Circuit would meet in Columbia
next week, it was uecessary to take some step to
supply thc vacancy caused by the death or Judge
Lemuel Boozer, and theu introduced the follow?
ing concurrent resolution:
Resolved by the Senate, the House or Represen?
tatives concurring, That both houses meet in
joint assembly on Thursday next, February 3,
1870. for the purpose or electing a judge ror the
Firth Judicial Citcuit, to till the vacancy caused
by the death ol Hon. Lemuel Boozer.
On motion ornayne, thc question was taken
on agreeing to thc resolution, and decided in thc
affirmative. It was then sent to the House, which
Messrs. C. D. Melton anti W. Dutson Wigg are
spoken or ror the position. The ronner is aud has
been for several years a promiuent member of
tlic Columbia bar, aod would fill thc position most
satisfactorily. Thc latter is at present judge of
thc Probat?" Court here. The election of Mr. Mel?
ton is probable, unless Whipper desires to accept
the place. Some of his friends have asserted
since the election to-day that if the Senate refuse
to meet in joint assembly to elect an associate
justice for the full term of six years, they will
support him for the vacant judgeship.
In thc Senate, to-day, Creen introduced n reso?
lution providing that as a testimonial of the sen?
ators' respect and esteem for the distinguished
services of Hon. A. C!. Mackey, president or the
Constitutional Convention, and or his Excellency
Governor Robert K. Scott, the clerk or the Senate
be authorized to have painted a full size portrait
of Hies leading representatives in the reconstruc?
tion of thc State of South Carolina. He then
moved that thc rule bc suspended, and thc reso?
lution considered immediately. Objection was
made, however, and the resolution was ordered
Tor consideration to-morrow.
CIVIL AND OTHER RIGHTS.
That l ill "to enforce the provisions or the Civil
Rights jill or the United States Congress, and to se?
cure ) thc people the benefits or a republican gov
crnrajntin this State,'" received its third reading
in the House to-day after Section 9 was amended
so as to provide that "lu every case in which, un?
der this*section, any such solicitor shall rall In his
duty as herein prescribed, Hie Attorney-General
shall make thc most effective prosecution possible
against him on behalf or thc State, and neither
any solicitor nor the Attorney-General shall set?
tle or enter a nol. pros, in any case arising under
this act, except by the consent or thc court."
THE LABOR QUESTION.
In thc House to-day, Jackson, .'rom thc Commit?
tee on Labor, to whom was recommitted a bill
for the better protection or laborers, and for the
appointment or a commissioner or contracts in
each county in thc State, reported back the same
accompanied by a substitute, a bill for thc better
protection or laborers and others under contracts
for service, and recommended the passage of the
same. The substitute was ordered to be primed,
and to He over ror a second reading.
TOE SECRETARY OP STATE.
During thc debate in Congress upon the cases
or Wallace vs. Simpson, and H?ge vs. Reed, certi?
ficates or election, signed by F. L. Cardozo, Secre?
tary or State; J. L. Neagle, Comptroller-General;
Niles G. Parker, Treasurer; D. H. Chamberlalu,
Attorney-General, constituting the State board
or canvassers, were presented by all of the par
tics interested. Congressman Randall stated that
he was advised to say that, if opportunity were
given, lt could bc established upon thc testimony
of said Cardozo, Secretary or State, that thc cei
tldcates presented by noge and Wallace, and
relied upon by the majority as showing a prima
facie title in ravor or Uogc and Wallaee, were
not gotten up ln^ his (the Secretary or State's)
office or signed by him as an official act, as he
will say under oath; that H?ge and Wallace
called and got rrom him thc blank certificates,
carried them out or his office, and had them tilled
up as they appear; that they then returned,
sought his sign?t ure and obtained lt, without his
reading or noticing ILS" contents or thc dates.
This speech was published lu thc Globe and read
by Hie Radicals here, who bitterly denounce poor
Carduzo for making a trHcstatcmcnt or thc affair.

Imposed by Congress for thc restoration or thc

An Arranged Afluir of Honor.
The Augusta Chronicle and Sentinel, of Sun?
day, says :
On last Friday a party of gentlemen passed
through this eily on their way to Demores t's
Ferry, siluated some distance below here on
tho Savannah River, where, upon the South
Carolina side ot tile stream, they propose to
indulge in a little social recreation in the shape
ol' a duel.
The adair has been kept exceedingly dark,
but from what wc have been able to learn lt
appears that thc difficulty had its origin at thc
tournament ball which was given in Waynes?
boro', Burke County, on last Thursday night.
During the evening, Mr. Perry DeLeon, ol Sa?
vannah, and Mr. Randolph Ridgely, of Rurke
County, became enguged in an altercation
with regard to thc ownership of a "place" in
one of Hie quadrilles which was being danced.
The quarrel resulted in Mr. DeLeon sendiug a
challenge to Mr. Ridgely, which was promptly
accepted by the latter. The place chosen lor
the meeting was the South Carolina side of
Demorest's Ferry, (our own favorite fighting
field of Sandbar Ferry being, for some rea?
son, slighted by tho combatan ls,) and the
weapons Colt's navy revolvers.
Tho distance between the parties was to be
twelve paces, and thc manner of conducting
the little affair to be as follows: Tho parties
to be placed with their backs to each other, to
wheel and fire when the word should be given,
and then to advance and lire until the wea?
pons were emptied, or until they should no
longer be needed.
As we have before stated, thc principals and
their seconds passed through this city on Fri?
day, on their way to the place appointed for
lim meeting, which was to have taken place at
12 o'clock yesterday. Mr. R. II. MiileiTge, ol'
Burke County, was thc second of Mr. DeLeon,
but we were unable to learn who officiated in
this capacity for the other party.
Up to the time of going to press nothing had i
been heard from Demorest's Ferry, bul. the re?

hero this morning. All ol'the parties engaged
iu the affair are well known in this city, and !

electioneering purposes. He said that if the fash?
ionable people of Washington would devote the
money spent for receptions and ornaments to
charitable purposes, there would be no need to call
upon Congress lo help the poor. Knott said that
thc effect of the bill would be to draw negroes

of his generals, and of thc most prominent and
influential ol' his friends among the civilians,

ple have been put to death, ' and at Jacmel
more than forty of them tire In a prison doom?
ed lo die on au early day. Thc spirit of ven?
geance has been fully roused, and tho victori?
ous revolutionists have expressed their d?ter?
mination to crush ont the Sulnave party. The
Cacos aro crying out for blood, and unless more
moderate and merciful councils prevail than
those ruling at present, a reign of terror may?
be expected In Hayti.
The question of allowing ex-President Geff
mrd to return to Hayti has been mooted.
Gcll'iurd La at present an exile, residing at
Kingston. Jamaica, the place lo which all tho
rulers of Hayti whom revolution has driven
from power have successively gone for asylum.
President Boyer was the first lo seek refuge
there, nearly thirty years ago, and he was fol?
lowed at different times b.t Heran], Riche,

President of Hayti whose life luis been taken
by the victorious revolutionists, all the rest
against whom thc people rose having been al?
lowed to escape; and ho hu* fallen a victim,
nol because he was worse than the others, but
because he was the bravest of the lot.
There ls trouble brewing with regard-to the
Dominican question as affected by the nego?
tiations olTivsident Baez with tho United
States Government for the lease ol'the Bay of
Sumana and tho eventual annexation ot San
Domingo to the United Stales. Saget, tile
head ol' thc Provisional Government of Hatti,
ls thc representative par excellence of thc Hay
tlan iden thuL lt ls absolutely necessary to tho
perpetuation ol'tho Haytiau nationality that
the territory of both San Domingo and this re?
public should be preserved In its integrity.
Saget is the personal friend of Cabrai, and the
political ally of the party in San Domingo now
in arms against Baez, lt ls believed that he
stands pledged to both Cabrai anti Luperon,
the principal leaders ot that party, to render
Ihcin all the aid In his power in their insur?
rectionary movements, anil that the war
Steamers he purchased in the United States
three In number-will be placed at the dispo?
sal of the Insurgents tobo employed against
Baez. Should the United States Senate
ratify the treaty for the lease ol' Sumana, ic is
all but certain that the American Government,
will be brought Into collision with thc Hayti
nns. There Is a strong feeling among tile Saget
party against the United States on account ol'
the friendly relations which have existed be?
tween President Grant's government and that
of the unfortunate Salnavc, and that feeling ls
Intensified by the suspicion entertained hy the
Haylians that the Americans wish to make
themselves masters of the whole country. The
triumphant revolutionists have the l'uil sym?
pathy of the English and French, who have nil

Pleasant Words About South Carolina.
A correspondent of the Richmond Dispatch
sends that paper some pleasant words about
Aiken, and a kindly, though sad description of
dear Charleston, now getting on her legs
again. The correspondent says :
Aiken, South Carolina, is a delightful place
for invalids. Far above tho low, malarious
lands of that State, it has always been a great
resort in the summer months. Situated among
tho pines, untouched by thc keen northeast
winds that often invade Charleston and Savan?
nah in thc winter season, free from excessive
dampness, high and dry, in fact, yet with an
equable climate, with a railroad passing
through lt, it is both accessible, pleasant and
healthy. Many Northern invalids resort there
and spend the winter; consumptives and rheu?
matics especially find it beneficial. The latter
experience so much relief for their complaints
that they, with one voice, pronounce that it
by no means deserves its name. Aches and
pains fly away on its pleasant breezes, and its
balmy balsamic air, filled with piney odors, is
delightful to all who breathe lt. Thus it has
become more and' more a popular resort dur?
ing both summer and winter. You find good
company and pleasant accommodation.
Augusta ls also a beautiful city, well laid off,
and Inhabited by a thriving, active popula?
Charleston looks as though dead or asleep.
Its beautiful sea-front, Its antique appearance,
its historic renown, and its courteous people,
render it both pleasant and Interesting. I was
very much pleased with it, although there ls
an air of dilapidation, of misfortune and ne?
glect about it that saddens one. Every house
stands alone, solidly built and isolated, the sea
air giving an aged, moss-colored look even to
one newly erected. Thc general style is to
build endways to thc street, and lo have a
small garden enclosed by nigh walls; thc en?
trance is by a gate under a portico running
alongside the house, the lower floor not being
inhabited, but used for offices or storerooms;
the parlor is always on the second floor.
Ali this has advantages in a warm climate; the
outside world is shut out, the sea-breeze ad?
mitted and the ladles of the family can watch
their flowers, attend to household matters, or
sit in dishabille in thc cool wind-swept porch?
es invisible to the street-passers. It includes
sufficient privacy, and yet allows the world to
be seen and entered into, when necessary,
without restraint. I like the style, and should
wish to see it introduced among us. It ls far
better than thc northern custom we have
adopted in our cities; for with us no man's
house is sufficiently private, every neighbor
knows witat you are about, and 13 perfectly
familiar with you inside.. These high walls
and firmly-fastened doors are also a protection
against theft. You remove temptation from
tlte eye of a thief by shutting up thus what?
ever you possess. Every man's house is thus
Indeed lils own castle, within which he Is lord
saprcme, and no entrance, no interruption
can take place without the knowledge and con?
sent of thc inmates. It is true, thc street has
rather a more mournful look as one passes
along by these Jail-like fronts, but the house is
built for the inmates, and not for the passers?
by, and within his own house the man should
be at home, apart from and distinct from all
thc outside world.
These high walls serve also to protect flow?
ers from the winds, and thus enable a finer
and more luxuriant growth to bc obtained. I
say nothing of the long walk on the point op?
posite thu bay, nor of the beaury of this bay
Itscir, with Fort Pinckney near, and ruined
Sumter and Moultrie ia thc distance. Thc
marks of shot and shell arc still visible on thc
houses. Thc defence of Chirieston against an
Immense force for so long a time-an attack,
united with skill and endurance, that render it
a marvel in modern warfare-will yet lind a
suitable historian. The people arc defeated
they do not look at all subdued. They may
well be proud of their Spartan conduct.
THE BLONDE B URLE HQ UEBS.
A Tlobile Critic Assaults and Caresses
Hie Lydia Thompson Troupe.
Thc Mobile Register prints an article-des?
criptive and K?thetie, slashing and caressing,
truthful and poetical-apropos of thc falr
haircd Britishers now performing in Mobile.
That the Charleston youth may know what to
expect if the Lydia Thompson troupe come
this way, we transfer the article to our col?
Dulce ext desiptn in loco-which was doubt?
less meant by thc author to be literally ren?
dered-British blondes arc no end of a fine
thing in their place. What that place may bc,
it is not so easy to define. It certainly is not
in the legitimate drama, wc are doubtful about
putting it in the ballet, and we hardly think
about them with the youth who declared,
'?there should be a gunboat in every family."
There WILS not long since a corporation in the
goodly city ol' Paris, called Lu Socitlli pour la
propagation dca femmes blondes. That's it.
Wc have found thc locum at lust. But with us
underdone Amcricnns.thc British Blondes seem
only a puzzling entremet between the solid roast
beef of the drama and those highly saccha?
rine dukes Suggested by sawdust and spangles.
Criticism were guilty of needless cruelty did
she stop to break upon thc wheel butterflies
such as burlesques must of needs be. And
perhaps it wore more discreet to say but little
of the personality that now and tuen comes
out timid the gentle buzz and thc ceaseless
shimmer ol'gaudy wings. But thc troupe has
cunio to us heralded with many blasts. We
have boon bidden to tumble before the sound,
even as stones in thc walls ol' Jericho; and be?
fore wc do this might wc not Just glunce Into
the largo end of lite horn and see ?fit be really
"sound and Jury signifying nothing !"
Tlie burlesques are simple threads'of absur?
dity on which to string fearful puns, broad
hits at the fillies, and a number of very fair
and peculiarly undressed young ladles. First
of iheso comes Miss Lydia 'Thompson, the
puke dc resistance, albeit not large nor, we
should opine, peculiarly tender. She is pitite,
trim and very spicy: with neatly moulded
limbs and a sprightliness ol'face and body
telling little of her long stage life. In fact,
Miss Thompson bids fair to rival Dejazetin
this tenacity of youth at least, for, undressed
at the footlights, she does not look sixteen.
As an actress she is nothing if not cAic; a pert
gesture here and a moue there, taking the
place of Hie power and voice she lacks. As
ii singer, .Miss Thompson had best not be
noticed; but as a dancer she does better.
Yet wc do not think, as a whole, that her
performance is as clever as those of two
others in Hie same line known to Mobile-Mrs.
Oates and Sophie Worrell. Tho former has
equal advantages of face, ligure and vivacity.
She, too, is nothing ii not erne, while her voice
is infinitely belter. Sophie Worrell, with less
personal attractions limn Miss Thompson, has
quite as much of the very peculiar forte of bur?
This is not a new opinion formed on a short
acquaintance ol' two nights. Wc have seen
Miss Thompson and her troupe in New York,
Baltimore and elsewhere, with every accesso?
ry of scenery and stage effect. And wc lion
estly think that so well supported, so well
-mounted,'' Mrs. Oates would make a far
greater success-if as iccll managed.
Next in thc trump ol'lame comes Miss Mark?
ham. Tlie pens of tho critics ljavc been like
"the pen ol' thc young man, John Alden, the
lover of women." They have been "flhricKlng
and screaming" Pauline. While Miss Thomp?
son is small, Miss Markham is large. While
one is light thc other is heavy. While one ls
piquante thc other is-well-not. Besides a
tully developed person, generously exhibited,
wc sec little claim Miss Markham has upon our
brothers of the quill, (of course we speak
upon thc surface,) for her acting is ferociously
mild, and her voice ls peculiarly fitted
for that simple ballad. "I cannot sing to?
night." There are other feminine mem?
bers of the troupe, but we have Tittie to say
of them-except that they are very whited and
most blondely bewigged-save Miss Eliza
Wcathersby. She is the sole member of tlie
troupe who does not seem to think that na?
ture-"above the belt"-should be entirely
hidden. A jolly, pretty and sprightly speci?
men of the "Maids of Merrie England," we
are specially grateful for her only partial ad?
vertisement of the chemist; and she has an
arch, pleasant manner that carries off well her
good-ll'uncultivated-ideas of acting. In the
farce, which but for them .would have dragged,
she very cleverly supported Mr. Beckett.
We h id an idea that wc possessed a natural
and cultivated knowledge of what a pretty
woraau is. Wc give it up; wc know nothing
jl?-*Jw-si?Bject, if, indeed, the British Blondes
arc pretty women, on the stage. What they
seem off", would be very diff?rent, were it any
business of ours. But on the boards, we re?
spectfully submit to the management, the in?
discriminate usc of white, red and black paint
In large quantities Is injudicious, and may
verge upon thc disagreeable. The Eastern
Almeh, before commencing the unique
poses of the "bee dance," pays special
attention to the kohl on her eyes, and the
henna on her nails. But thc most hoary old
I Turk would fly from his hookah did his danc?
ing girl appear-eyes, nose, mouth and ears
one mass of plaster of Paris, vermilion and.
black. A little paint % a dangerous thing, but
too much Is deadly. The blondes may ''paint
an inch thick,'' but it will hardlv be votejpan
Improvement-this side of the gallery, A?SB
Weatiiersby is, as we said, the one exception?
to this; whence, perhaps, part of the agreea?
ble Impression Bhe has made both nights upon
her audience. jg?.
In tlie burlesque the dressing is rich and<
becoming, it not correct: Miss Thompson andi
Captain Pauline ot the Forty being peculiarly
magnificent. Of the acting we have tdready
spoken, save of that by Messrs. Beckett and
Cahill. Both are very clever burlesquers, the
latter being far the more easy and therefore
the funnier of tile two. In the midst ot such,
utter rot as burlesques are made of, lt is hard,
to seize salient points, but the "Hard Times"'
quartette was prettily done; Miss Weathers
by's solo was pert and saucy enough to deserve .
the encore, even were her singing not excep?
tionally good for burlesque music; and the
nursery rhymes were voted immense by the-,
unanimous and continued yells of the house. -
But we pined for the donkey.
Such are the Blonde Burlesquers as they
seemed to us. But if success be Indeed the -
test of merit, then are they the most merito?
rious troupe ever seen in Mobile since the war.
The house has been packed as we have rarely
seen lt, and the vast majority af the audiences
seem more than satisfied. Owens and Mrs.
Gladstane might have divided the receipts of
the two last nights with much profit; and even-.
Joe Jefferson cannot do more than these-foe
they pack the house.
To-night the bill will be changed to the bur?
lesque of "La Somn?mbula"-which is far more
clever-and "Did yon ever send your wife to*
Frascati ?" Hoping the eyes of the fair ones
will not be "so black as they are painted," and
that (of two at least) their shadows may never'
be less, we predict another crowded and well*
THE CLOVER HILL COAL COMPANY*
Tlie Richmond Dispatch publishes the fol?
lowing interesting article describing the con?
dition and prospects of the Clover Hill Coal
Company. It Will be of interest here, not only
as an Indication of what can be accomplished'
by Southern skill and enterprise, but also be?
cause the president of the company Is a gal?
lant young Charlestonian, who, at the close of
the war, If we remember aright, was the
youngest brigadier general in the Confederate ?
The prosperous condition ot affairs at the
Clover Hill coal pits will bc noted with pleas?
ure by all who are Interested in thc develop?
ment of the material resources of our state.
The Clover Hill mines are situated in Chester?
field County, about twenty-seven miles from
Richmond, and the coal ls couVeyed thence by
rall to Osborne's Landing, on thc James River,,
about fifteen miles below Richmond, and only
twenty-five from the pits, their proximity to
water navigation being one ol their many ad?
vantages. The mine ls worked by a corpora- %
Hon chartered as the Clover Hill Railroad Com?
pany. The president, General T. M. Logan, Is,
to use the popular phrase, "a Uv? man," pos?
sessed ol'good judgment, untiring energy, and
fine business habits; the surface manager, Mr.,
Elliott Lacy, is a young man also highly es?
teemed for his executive ability, and the un?
derground superintendent, Mr. Owens, is said
to be thc possessor of unusual qua locations for
that position. Under such management lt ls
not surprising that the prospects of the com
pany are encouraging. ?
There arc now lour shafts open at the minos/
The Raccoon pit has just been successfully de?
veloped, and the miners think they have struck -'
a vein of coal which will give them work for '
twenty years to come. The product ls a bitu?
minous coal of ine quality, valued for many
purposes, and particularly for thc manufacture -
ol'gas. Being In excellent repute, lt is dis?
tributed all over the country by dally ship?
ments to points on the coast from Worcester,.
Mass., to Savannah. Qa.
The company has acted wisely, we may add, -
in thc management of their profits since the?
wan Instead of declaring dividends they
have used $100,000 in adding to the machinery,
developing the mines, and otherwise increas?
ing their facilities, until now thc yield is only
limited by the demand; and, notwithstanding
the large outlay referred to, a dividend of four '
per cont, has recently been declared. Another
effect of good management is seen in the tact
that thc coal is now sold at a dollar per load
less than it brought last year, and two dollars
per load less than in 1868.
Botli General Logan and Mr. Lacy arc gen?
tlemen of liberal education and accomplished
engineers, who have made mining a specialty.
We cannot close lilli! hastily written sketch
without congratulating thc company upon
having secured their services, and the State
upon having such men engaged in this impor?
tant brandi of industry.
