DR. WIXKLER'S LECTURE.-Thc Cheraw Dem?
ocrat has the following notice of a lecture deliv?
ered by tlie Kev. Dr. Winklcr, before thc Cheraw
Lyceum: "The subject of the lecture was'Relig?
ion ami Astronomy." It was a chaste production,
well delivered, and wc were glad to Hud that the
reverend gentleman was not disposed to forget
thc grand object of his mission to his fellow-men,
as'a minister of the gospel, but, ou the contrary,
brought all his acquisitions of learning to subserve
the interests of religious truth. The lecture afford?
ed evidence that the lecturer has not only read
books to advantage, but has thought much for
himself. While his style was chaste and vigorous,
the matter of the lecture was Interesting and sug?

tlons and other assistance.
IMPORTANT TO THE SHIPPING INTEREST.-The
select Congressional committee on the decline of
American Commerce has completed Its report,
andwill probably present lt to the Rouse or Rep?
resentatives to-day. lt enters fully Into the causes
of the decline of commerce, and makes numer?
ous suggestions ror Its revlyal. The committee
ascertains that the present system or harbor?
masters and pilots enlists heavy expense and fre?
quent delay in discharging cargoes, Ac, and they
recommend thc abolition of both. If the owners
of vessels desire to employ pilots, they will bc
allowed to do so or not, as they see Qt. The com?
mittee further recommends a drawback upon all
materials used for shipbuilding, and the repeal
or tonnage duties on American vessels.
THE NEW TUCRSDAT STEAM LINE.-We take
great pleasure in "announcing that the furniture
and stateroom outfit cf the South Carolina and
Tennessee have been put aboard, and that, begin?
ning on Thursday, 17th, the travelling public will I
be accommodated on board these splendid iron
steamships. Everything is new and fresh, of the
best, and lt is Intended by the agents to make
Thursday an attractive starting day ror passen?
gers bound North aud East.
Owing to thc relative condition of the market
here and in New York, a concession has been
made to shippers on the principal articles of
freight, with the hope that such a course will in?
duce business. The rate on sea island cotton ls
fixed at gc., uplauds s'c, and on rice SI 25 per
THE DCELLO IN COLCMBIAVA^BIJOODLESS
ENCOUNTER.-Wc arc Informed t???t parties in
Columbia had made arrangements on Saturday
morning, to settle their little difficulties by a re?
sort to the duello. Both parties were on the
ground, when a disagreement arose between
one of the principals and his second, in which'
the latter was called a liar. This opprobrious epi
ther"proved a new casus belli, and the second pro?
ducing two revolvers, demanded satisfaction then
and there. Such a summary mode or settling the
dispute was not to the taste of the^riaclpal, and
he peremptorally declined, and the second imme?
diately refused to take any further part lu the
proceedings, which caused an indefinite post?
ponement of the whole affair, and a loss to Colum?
bia of a first-class sensation.
CRUMBS.-James Landrigan, the white man
who was stabbed In Market-street, has Unproved
-considerably. The two young men who were ar?
rested on suspicion or having stabbed him are
still in jail.
Three colored military companies, betrlggcd
wita all the pomp and panoply of glorious war
minus the weapons, paraded the streets yesterday,
and heard a memorial sermon In Cain's church on
the Lincoln assassination.
Asphaltum sidewalks are being laid on most of
the short streets leading to the wharves. That
portion of Broad-street recently treated with cob
? ble stones ls also to have a layer of asphalt.
Members of the Charleston Chamber of Com?
merce can obtain their tickets for the supper this
evening by applying to the Treasurer at the Plan?
ters' and Mechanics' Bank, between the hours or
9 o'clock, A. M., and 3 o'clock, P. M., or at the
Hibernian Hall from 3 to 8 o'clock, P. M.
COMMUNICATION" BETWEEN CHARLESTON AND
SAVANNAH.-We are glad to learn that the direc?
tion of thc Savannah and Charleston Railroad
Company, at a meeting Saturday evening,
adopted measures to insure an almost immediate
opening of dally intercourse by their road between
Savannah and our city.
The Immediate cause ol the delay to complete
their road has been the overflow or the swamps
or the Savannah river obstructing the contractors
on the trestlework, or which thirty-five hundred
feet enly is unfinished.
The bridge over the river is complete. If there
is no new overflow of the swamps, thc work may
be finished and the road opened In less than ten
days. But the direction, to prevent all runner
delay, which has already been so unfortune to
them and disappointing to the public, have or?
dered the Immediate preparation of a platform
and landing place on the South Carolina side of
the river, at the bridge seventeen miles by river
from Savannah. If, unfortunately, tho water
shall again rise, they will then Immediately put
a good steamboat ou the river, to run between
Savannah and the bridge, to connect with the
trains between that point and Charleston, about
ninety miles. The passage time on thls.way,
will be about six and one-half hours, and be safe
The direction in their contract for rebuilding,
provided for completing the road rrem Charleston
to the river by the first day or October last, in?
tending to adopt this temporary means of trans?
portation while the remainder of the road was in
process of construction, which was to have beeu
finished by the first day or January or this year.
The delay and disappointment to the public and
to themselves has not been their rault.
We congratulate the public and all interested
that there will so soon be a reopening or this
necessary lite of railroad. There can be no
doubt of Its m ecssity, and there ls a well founded
hop?-that the enterprise will be most successful
Origin of thc Custom-Who Make,
Buy, Write and Read Valentines.
The 14th of February, which long custom
ha3 dedicated to the service or Cupid, is eagerly
anticipated by all sentimental persons, particu?
larly those or the gentler sex. The orginorthc
custom is not dellnitcly settled, and is ascribed
by some authorities to ttie erroneous idea that
birds took t ?ir mates at this season of the year;
and by others, to a practice prevalent lu ancient
Rome at the restival or the Lupercalia, held du?
ring the month of February, when, among other
ceremonies, the names or young women were
placed in a box, from which they were taken by
blindfolded young men. The pastors or the cai ly
churches, finding it impossible to destroy this
pagan ceremony, changed its form, and made it
The-costom existed very early in England, and
was much practiced in the houses of the gentry.
There are frequent rererences to it in Shakespeare,
as, for example, Ophelia's song iu Hamlet:
"To-morrow ls Saint Valentine's day,
All in thc morning bctimc,
And I. a maid at your window,
To be your Valentine." .
The most remarkable valentine mentioned in
literature is that prepared by the united exertions
of the veracious Sam Weller and his redoubtable
father, for the benefit of Mary, the housemaid,
and having the exceedingly original signature or
The primitive idea or a valentine is here de?
picted with striking reality, and this rainous pro?
duction will doubtless have its thousandth coun?
terpart before thc present month ls ended.
The seasou for sending these tokens of affection
extends through the entire month of February,
though according to some authorities lt should be
limited to the week preceding and following thc
fourteenth day. During this period the fomale
bosom may bc said to bc In a state of continual
pulsation. The greatest secrecy is always neces?
sary in preparing these tokens of tenderness.
Care must bc taken to disguise the handwriting
when addressing them, and no suspicions should
bc aroused in the recipient by incautious inqui?
ries, showing that one possesses any knowledge
of, or is implicated in. the undertaking. Of course
thc fair Aramlnta or the manly Augustus will al?
ways be apprised by some hint from their adored
one when a valentine has been sent to them, if in?
deed the sensitive heart does not of itself detect
The success of humorous valentines consists In
the skill with which individual weaknesses or
comicalities are exposed ; and If, as ls often thc
case, a little malice has incited the deed, the fon
ls only heightened to the lookers on, though not
to the victim.
As the manuracture or valentines is purely a
matter or business, their literary character is
commonly or the most matter-oMact kind. Com?
monplace sentiment, weak rhymes, and "ma?
chine'' poetry are the rule, and real excellence Is
exceptional. Their great merit consists in per?
fect harmlessness, which is not a bad reflWc in
Many persons think the habit or sending valen?
tines ls going out of fashion; but this ls not the
case, as is shown by the amount of capital invest?
ed in their manufacture, and the number annu?
ally sold. Thc total consumption lu thc United
ted States is between ten and fifteen millions, thc
price of which varies from ouc cent to twenty
live dollars, though the majority are sold for less
than one dollar. The cost rarely exceeds twenty
dollars. Not long_sJnce a firm iu Ealtimorc man?
ufactured a few to order for oue hundred dollars
apiece, each ohe containing a rich diamond ring.
Everything of interest that can be made the sub?
ject or cheap wit ls pressed into thc service or the
valentine maker. Waterrails, croquet, base ball,
carpet-baggers, Planchette, woman's suffrage
and the Grecian bend, have au been made the
subject for valentines. The latter in particular
has been burlesqued In a great variety or styles,
and ls evidently a fovorite subject for ridicule.
Finally, whether valentines contain what
Shakespeare calls "some shallow story or deep
love." or "a deep story or a deeper love,'" they
will always be acceptable with the scutlmcntal
portion or the world, for "love delights lu
phrases," and every one ls susceptible to the deli?
cate flattery of an amatory epistle..
DEATH OF REV. JAMES STONEY.-Tho Savan?
nah News or Friday last says: "We are pained to
record the death or the Rev. James Stoney, or
this city. He was, at the time or lils death, the
rector or St. Stephen's Chapel. Before the war he
was the rector or St. Luke's Church, or St. Luke's
Parish, In South Carolina, and there, as herc, he
was beloved for lils many amiable traits and
honest, manly and Christian character."
OITRAGEOCS CONDUCT.-The houses of seve?
ral residents on Rutledge avenue have been fre?
quently marked, or their appearance otherwise
injured while freshly painted, and the perpetra?
tors have never been discovered. On Friday night,
some miscreant deliberately hacked the renee on
Mr. Chlsolra's premises, so as to mar its looks,
rendering repairs necessary. The police In that
section or thc city should be instructed to keep a
bright lookout, and ir these scamps arc by chance
detected no light punishment should bc meetcd to
AM IMPORTANT INVENTION.-A COTTON SBED
HULLER.-Messrs. Brodie A Co. have now on ex?
hibition at their oftlce, Shaw's cotton-seed huller,
a machine that was Invented for the purpose of
shelling the cotton seed arter flrst removing the
lint. The husk is one of the best fertilizers for
cotton that is known, while thc kernel produces
an oil that ls unsurpassed for lubricating pur?
poses. The refose cake that ?3 left after extract?
ing the oil is also utilized, and the cotton seed
bids fair to become an Important commercial
export from our Southern ports. Messrs. Brodie
A Co. will, in a few days, have one of these
machines in active operation at their lumber
yard at the west end of Broad street. Samples
of work, circulars, and all information can be ob?
tained at their office on North Atlantic wharf.

D?lTI? ?F Jtf HENRY COBIA.
Mr. Henry Cobia. an esteemed and rejected
citizen of Charleston, died yesterday morning, In
the sixty-fifth year of his age. More than a week
ago he was believed to be at the point or death,
but he rallied when all hope seemed past, and
for some time it was confidently holieved that he
would recover. Violent hemorrhages took place
on Friday and Saturday, and this was more than
his debilitated system could endure. Without
trespassing upon thc sanctity of the death-bed, or
the privacy of domestic sorrow^it may be said
that the upright man who has passed away was
sensible to the end, and awaited his last moment
with calm fortitude and touching resignation.
Mr. Cobia was universally respected. A man
or sterling character, of unswerving rectitude,
and of good business skill, he worked his way on?
ward and upward, gaining new rriends at every
step, and binding to himself more firmly every
year the regard and good feeling of the commu?
nity. If he had an enemy, no one knew it. Un?
ostentatious and unpretending In manner and
deportment, he excited no envy and no distrust.
Influence and position came to him as the legiti?
mate fruits of a long life well spent ; and at the
time or his death his means had allowed him to
enlarge still further thc extended circle of his use
fuloess. They who worshipped with him know
that he was indeed a pillar or the raith, and no?
where, outside of his home, will his loss be more I
keenly felt than In the church where he prayed to
his Maker during the struggles of his youth, the
progress of his middle life, and the assured for?
tunes of his mature years. In private life and
public life he was honored and trusted. Ile, in?
deed, was an honest man. And thc place which
he leaves vacant lt will surely be hard to fill.
Mr. Cobia was born in Charleston on May 14th,
lSO?. He was put to work at an early agc, and in
1830 made a voyage to Gibraltar, as supercargo of
one of thc vessels or Mr. \V. A. Caldwell, the
father of Messrs. rt. and A. P. Caldwell, of this
city. Upon his return to Charleston, Mr. Cobia
formed a copartnership with thc late Colonel J. C.
Blum, and the firm of Blum A Cobia soon became
well and favorably known. They carried on their
business as wholesale grocers for about twenty
years. Colonel Blum, who had amassed a lurge
fortune, then withdrew, and Mr. Cobla carried on
ttie businc-s under the name or II. Cobia A Co.,
his business partners at the time of his death be?
ing Mr. Charles H. West and Mr. Alexander Cal?
Mr. Cobia was for nearly forty years a member
of the vestry or St. John's Lutheran Church. He
was ele ted a vestryman inlS32, and so remained,
with '>ut. a short Intermission, until 1S69, when
he wa ? elected president or tba vestry.
The public positions held by Mr. Cobia were
many and important. For mote than twenty
years, he was a director or the Carolina Insurance
Company. He was president or thc Charleston
Building and Loan Association, and or the Mutual
Benefit and Loan Association. He was an alder?
man of Charleston under the administrations of
Mayors Schnlerlc and Macbeth. He was elected
a commissioner of the Orphanhouse lu 'lSC3. He
was a director of thc Nashville and Chattanooga
Railroad Company, and a trustee of the Marine
School. Upon thc death of thc late Donald Mc?
Kay, Mr. Cobla was unanimously elected presi?
dent or thc People's National Bank or Charles?
ton, and last year he was elected president
or the Charleston Board or Trade. These in?
fluential and responsible oillces, among others,
were held by Mr. Cobla at thc time of his death.
Upon thc announcement of Mr. Cobia's death,
members of the Board of Trade, assisted by other
gentlemen, hastened io testify their deep sense of
thc public loss, by placing thc ensiguia of mourn?
ing on the new building of the Board, on Meeting
street, near Wentworth. The balcony fronting
th? street ls draped in black, with the Inscription
in white letter*, "We mourn our President."
Ulack and white fostoons, fastened with mourn?
ing rosettes, were also hung around the windows,
and the doorway was likewise neatly festooned
with black. The lady boarders of the Charleston
Hotel lent valued assistance lu thc preparation or
thc rosettes and other mourning material.
The funeral services of Mr. Cobla will take place
at3 o'clock, this afternoon, in St. John's Luthe?
TUB CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.-This society
will celebrate its forty-seventh anniversary to?
day, at thc Hibernian Hall. The election for offi?
cers will be held lu the afternoon, between 3 and
0 o'clock, and thc supper will be served at S In the
THE OATES OPERATIC AND BURLESQUE
TROUPE.-This splendid company, which during
Its stay in Savannah drew every night thc most
brilliant and crowded audiences ever seen In that
city, arrived last evening, and will open to-night
at thc Academy of Music, in the grand spectacu?
lar burlesque entitled "Thc Field of the Cloth of
Gold." Thc Savanuah papers have been most en?
thusiastic in their commendations of thc troupe.
Our namesake, thc News, or that city, says: "lt ls
certainly one of the best organized companies
that has ever visited our city, cembinlug In a re?
markable degree all the elements of success lu
their peculiar linc or performances, Icmlnine
beauty and grace, musical talent and rare excel?
lence, graceful dancing, Irresistible humor, pan?
tomime, burlesque and good acting. Under its
excellent management the entire resources of the
company are brought into harmonious combina?
tion for thc attainment of thc best general effect.
Whatever theyaltcmptis thoroughly and satis?
factorily accomplished, thus giving the most per?
fect satisfaction to their audiences, with whom
they nightly grow in favor." We advise our read?
ers to secure their seats early In the day.
SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE ACADEMY.-During
thc past few years, South Carolina has had several
Gesslers, but not one Tell. The lofty cap has been
bowed to until our people have a crick In their
back, and the "Mountain nymph, sweet Liberty,"
If not dead, ls In a comatose condition. This may
be the reason why the patriotic sentiments of
Sheridan Knowles' heroic drama did not arouse,
of their own strength, any sustained enthusiasm
at the Academy on Saturday night. The play or
"William Tell" is, to tell the truth, somewhat dull
ard dreary, and lt went off well only besause of
thc excellent acting of the principal mem?
bers of the cast. Mr. Warner, (Winiam Tell,)
whose action In the opening scenes, nota?
bly with Melchthal, (Mr. Parker,) was rather
violent than deeply passionate, rose with
the development of the well-known plot, and In
thc last act showed a delicacy ol pathos as rrcsh
as it was pleasing. Miss Eldridge (Albert) played
with her accustomed taste and skill, and it was
regretted that thc rair benejlciarc hail so limited
a scope for thc display of her dramatic powers.
Mr. Fannlu was a good Gcsslcr, and that careful
and meritorious actor, Mr. Parker, made the
most of the small part of Melchthal. Altot ?ther,
the drama went off successfully. Mr. Warner was
called before the curtain at the close of thc first
act, and thc same compliment was paid to Miss
Eldridge and Mr. Warner at the cud or the piece.
"Ten Nights In a Barroom," which closed the
performance, is a highly sensational domestic
drama, whose theme ls drunkenness, and whose
moral is that a perseverance in thc practico of
dram-drinking will lead to the poorhouse or gal?
lows, but that lt ls never too late for thc sot to
mend his evil ways.
The play ls rich In broils, In stabbing, In bruis?
ing and ia killing, but it gave Mr. Fanniu (Joe
Morgan,) an opportunity or showing an Intense
dramatic pawer or which he had not been thought
capable. The raving of the drunkard lu his de?
lirium, the palsied hand, the quivering frame, thc
frenzied eye, the changing moods of recklessness
and repentance-all made up a harrowing pic?
ture, faithful in the miuntest detail, and painrul
because or Its realism. It was a grand piece
or acting, and thc death-like stillness, only broken
by a suppressed sob, told the startling effect pro?
duced upon thc audience. Miss E:dridgc (Fanny
Morj-au) gave Mr. Fannin an excellent support,
and Miss Teresa Lyle (Mary Morgan) played with
highly commendable pathos and skill. This
young lady speaks very distinctly, and did foll
justice to the most important part with which she
has yet boen entrusted. Miss LaFond played thc
"New England Gu l" with becoming dash and lire,
and Mr. Ryan was as full as ever of fun and rol?
licking humor. When thc curtain fell Mr. Faunin
was called out and loudly applauded.

CHARLESTON, February 12.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
Please correct for ?nu an error. Thc amount
granted mc by the trustees or Mr. Caleb Dorsey,
or Maryland, in November last, was $3000. I
was thus enabled to meet thc second instalment
due, with one year's Interest, upon thc property
purchased by me for my work, and, with the bal?
ance and such amounts as I have been able to
collect here, been carrying on the enterprise, with
some 250 scholars and su inmate3 of the Home.
It costs between $1300 and $1400 per mouth. It
will be thus seen that even this munificent dona?
tion docs not go very far, and wc trust it may
stimulate some other klud hearts to aid lu sus?
taining us until we are able to take care of our?

Messrs. Kinsman <? Howell:
GENTLEMEN-Having received your communi?
cation of September 7ih, asking for an explana?
tion in regard to thc condition of my crops where
Mapes' Superphosphate or Lime was used, lean
cheerfully say that your superphosphate of lime
increased my crops al least one-third, especially
in my low lands. It gnve my cotton a healthier
color and it grew beyond all thc cotton I had thc
first ol'the season, and I am satisfied it put my
crops at least two weeks in advance of crops that
were planted without thc phosphate of lime. I
think it has a tendency to warm, enrich and
sweeten thc land, especially where lt lias soured
Irom want or thorough draining, and especially
on these low lands that have never been thorough?
ly sub-soiled. My cotton was far in advance of
any cotton about mc where the Peruvian guano
was used, and while Hie Peruvian Guano, in the
heat or the summer, burnt thc cotton, Mapes' Su?
perphosphate or Lime kept the cotton growing
rrcsh and healthy. I did not use lt on any but my
col on land; I don't know what effect lt would
have with corn, but I believe it would be the
best manure wc can have on tlitse low lands.
With kind regards, I am, very truly, yours,
(Signed) _ _E. DEGOLYEH.
