PERUVIAN GUANO.-The deposits of manure
existing on the Chincha Islands, coast of Peru,
are known everywhere for their great value as
. land stimulants. This article has been in such
extensive demand in all civized countries, that
thc original fields on the Chincha Islands are
about being exhausted, and the Peruvian Govern?
ment, which has for a long time enjoyed a valua?
ble monopoly of these deposits, have opened new
mmes on the Guanape Islands, which will be ror
a time, at least, the main source or supply. The
article which comes from this last point ls said to
be l'aljS/ equal to the best which was procured
from the Chinchas. A cargo or about eight hun?
dred tons, direct from Guanape, has arrived here,
and been purchased by Messrs. Geo. W. Williams
A Co., who offer it rrotn the wharr at sixty dol?
lars rer ton, gold. Its undoubted purity and
value will cause it to meet with rapid sale. These
gentlemen have at their office some tine speci?
mens of crystals, impregnated with ammonia
and phosphatic eggs, taken from the deposits on
these islands, which for thc student and agricul?
turist possess much interest.
THE BENEFIT OF MRS. OATES.-The "Pride of
the Market," and other pieces, will be played at
the Academy of Music to-night, for the beneflt or
Mrs. Oates, thc charming actress, who is already
.so great a ravorlte with all lovers "or grace, sklU
and wholesome run. Burlesque may be only a
twig or the '..-amatic tree, but lt can be made the
source of Indnlte amasement, while to perch there
successfully the bolu burlesquer must possess
different powers, which are rarely found together.
All these Mrs. Oate3 enjoys In an eminent degree.
A spirited and careful actress, or gracerul pres?
ence, the possessor or a rich, ringing voice, and
having a Tull command or all the resources or the
dramatic and lyric stage, the rair lady ls as
fascinating In comedy as in burlesque, and in
pure burlesque is Inimitable. The pieces chosen
for to-night will display to good purpose the
versatility of her genius, and it is expected that
she will have a crowded house. On Saturday the
present engagement of the Oates Company comes
to an end, and for some time there will be no
fresh opportunity of beholding again the "twlnk
Ung si&r of the lyric stage," whose beneflt
comes off to-night.

THE CATHOLIC FAIK.-The rain put a damper
on aU outside enjoyment last night; but thc fair
was comparatively well attended, and the even?
ing was spent in an enjoyable manner. The at?
tractions have not diminished, and the enter?
tainment ls all that could be desired.
A VERY HIGH TIDE.-The springtide of yes?
terday morning was unusually high, the low
streets and grounds in the upper wards bordering
on either river being flooded. The causeway of
the Savannah Railroad dock, on Ashley River,
was completely submerged, and the streets In thc
neighborhood or the Arsenal were Impassable on
acconnt of their flooded condition. A horse with
a loaded dray fell down while wading through In.
spection street, aud was rescued with some diffi?
POCAHONTAS_John Brougham's famous bur?
lesque 13 a favorite in the Uuited States, even In
the "Old Dominion," where thc blood of the gen?
tle savage bronzes the cheeks, in fancy at least,
of many a famous family. It is smart and pun?
gent; as fuU of puns as Gaelic ls or consonants,
and with as many funny situations as there are
liquid vowels in the soft Tuscan tongue. The In?
terest of the legend never flags; aud if it can
always be Illustrated and adorned by a troupe
like that which now occupies our Academy, thc
will surely never die.
Mrs. Oates last night played "John Smith" with
unconquerable spirit, and a vivid force which
kuows no such word as tire. The dramatic
ability of this fair lady ls more apparent every?
day. There ls Infinite variety in her acting, aud
her rich, full voice was displayed to admirable
advantage in the graceful songs introduced into
the Indian burlesque.
! H. R. H. Princess Pocahontas fell to the lot of
Mrs. Sheldon, a distressingly bewitching dame
for whom the universal Smith might well live,
and could hardly rerusc to die. Miss Ida DcSoycr
appeared as Dl-mun-dl, fixing herseir more firm?
ly than ever In popular favor. Mr. Allen was a
glorious Powhatan, and lils ripe, mellow, bass
told well In the concerted music. All the minor
parts were weU filled, and the company played
and sang with the clock-work precision aud ac?
curacy for which they are famous.
The intricate guitar solo by Mr. Hernandez was
loudly applauded, as was thc "Tumbleronlcon."
"An Alarming Sacrifice," a laughable farce,
opened the performances. Bob Ticket (Mr.
Sheldon) was a capital bit of acting, and Susan
Sweet Apr-le (Mrs. Sheldon) aud Tidbit (Miss Dc
Soyer) were prettily piquante and touchingly

MASONIC.-The Grand Council of Royal and
Select Master- of South Carolina met on Tues?
day morning, at Masonic Hall, In this city, and
elected the following officers for the ensuing year:
Companion A. G. Mackey, M. P. Grand Master.
Companion B. R. Campbell, Thrice Select D.
Companion E. W. Lloyd, S. M. Hiram of Tyre.
Companion C. F. Jackson, Grand Treasurer.
Companion H. W. Schroder, Grand Recorder.
Companion J. A. Hoyt, Grand Marshal.
Companion J. Birnie. Grand Captain Guards.
Companion C. M. Miller, Grand Conductor of
Companion L. F. Meyer, Grand Steward.
No impartant questions came up in council, ex?
cept two suggested by the address of Companion
Mackey, Grand Master. The first was whether a
Grand Council had the right to confer the degrees,
and thc other was whether the Super Excellent
degree was any part of the ritual of the rite.
Both subjects were referred to the committee on
correspondence, who reported In accordance
with the suggestions of the Grand Master, that
the Grand Council possessed the right of confer?
ring the degrees, and that thc Super-Excellent de?
gree was an innovation on the ancient land?
marks and would not bo recognized by the Grand
Council. These are matters or great importance
to Council Masons in this State.
THE RIGHT OF THE CITY TO IMPRISON-.-The
grand jury, in their presentment made yesterday,
directed the attention of the court to the fact that
"persons arrested for alleged violations of thc
law by thc detective force without le^al process
have been confined Tor tirtecn days in the cells
under the City Hall." The decisions of the Mayor's
Court, in condemning persons charged with
statutory offences to imprisonment in thc Honse
or Correction, were also considered a grave viola?
tion ol the law, as no person chafed with an In?
dictable offence should be couilneu lu any other
place than the county jail.
The arbitrary exercise or power by the police
and other muulcipal authorities has been fre?
quently questioned; and while the right or thc
city to punish all violations or Its ordinances is
not doubted, It is claimed that when fines are Im?
posed and the offender refuses to pay, the Record?
er's Court ls the proper tribunal to which thc case
should be referred for adjudication, as the city
has not the right to imprison until thc fine Im?
posed should be paid. This was tested on a point
similar to that stated above on Tuesday morning,
before Judge Carpenter. A man who was fined
in the Mayor's Court for an offence against a city
ordinance refused to pay the fine, and was Im?
prisoned. The case was brought before the Judge
on a habeas corpus, which was granted, on the
grounds that the remedy for the city lay in the
Recorder's Court, and Imprisonment was illegal.
CRUMBS.-H. Larcomb, the president of the
United Fire Company, colored, was presented at
their last anniversary with a fine sliver trumpet,
valued at $100.
The ball given by thc German Fire Company, In
aid of thc German Lutheran Church on King
street, given at thc hall of thc company In Chal?
mers street, was well attended and a perfect suc?
The horrible din caused by the passage of vehi?
cles over the cobble stones, la the vinclty of the
courtroom, has ruined the equanimity or the
grand jury and they recommend that thc county
commissioners replace thc present noisy pave?
ment with the Nicholson, or some other smooth
and noiseless material.
Joshua Thompson was arrested on Wednesday,
ror stealing a trace chain and other articles from
the South Carolina Railroad depot, and turned
over to Magistrate Kanapaux ror prosecution.

PRESENTMENT OK THE GRAND JURY OF
CHARLESTON COUNTY.-The Billowing present?
ment, submitted by the grand Jury, M. Caulfield,
roreman, was read in open court on Thursday
The grand Jury or Charleston County, ror the
February term or the Court or Common Pleas and
Genera: Sessions, rcspcctrully present:
That they have inspected the several public
buildings, and round them In good order and well
adapted tn every respect Tor tho purposes ror !
which thev were designed. They would especially
commend thc administration or the county jail,
its police and sanitary arrangements, securing
alike thc sarcty and comfort or its Inmates, while
the allowance or rood to each prisoner is ample and
the quality good. They And, however, that some
or thc cells and galleries or the Jail require white?
washing, and that the privy needs cleaning out.
They recommend that the necessary lime aud
brushes bc furnished thejnilor by the county com?
missioners. and that the whitewashing bc done
by a detail or prisoners under his supervision,
thus effecting a considerable saving to the State,
as compared with the cost ol the same work
when executed under contract. They would also
invite attention to thc Tact that some or the pri?
soners are almost destitute or clothing, and a due
regard ror humanity and decency demands, that
iu all such cases the county commissioners should,
upon the certificate or tho sheriff, furnish the
necessary wearing apparel at the expense of th j
They also examined tho nouse of Correction,
under the control of the municipal government or
Charleston, and round lt administered by the
keeper with skill aud efficiency, aud Rs records
well kept: bat the allowance or rood for thc pri?
soners ls lusunicicut, and Us quality most In?
lt this connection thc grand jury deem it ne?
cessary to state that they have been informed
that persons charged with statutory offences are,
lu some instances, arrested by the police and im?
prisoned in thc House of Correction. While this
institution Ls, doubtless, a necessary agency for
the punishment of offenders against thc ordi?
nances and police regulations or the city, yet
the grand jury regard it as agrave violation to
contine any person charged with an Indictable or
feucc in any other place than the county Jail.
They are also credibly advised that many per?
sons have been arrested for alleged violation of
law, by the detective force or this city, without
legal process, and have been confined in the
vaults or cells under the City Hall, for periods
ranging from three to fifteen days, shut out
almost entirely from light and air.
They earnestly recommend that this system or
"'lprisonment be at once stopped, as dangerous
to tuc liberty or the citizens and impeding the ad?
ministration or justice.
Thc grand Jury visited thc Fireproor Building,
and fouud that the Improvements recommended
by their predecessors at the last term for the pre?
servation of the public records, and Tor other pur?
poses, are now lu course or execution.
The attention or the grand jury has been invited
to the wretched condition or the roads and
bridges in some parts or the county, especially in
St. John's Berkeley Parish, and to t i particularly
they ask the early atteutiou of tl. ouuty com?
The grand jury have observed that the transit
of vehicles over" the cobble stone paving on the
south front of thc courthouse often renders it al?
most Impossible lo be heard, and they therefore
recommend that thc county commissioners do,
without delay, have said paviug replaced with
Gie Nicholson, or some oilier noiseless pavement,
in order that they may be "silence In court."
It Is gratifying to the grand jury to state that
no case of a capital nature has been laid before
them, yet the numerous cases, sonic of them very
grave, upon which they have acted impel them
to declare that, in their judgment, thc increase of
crime in thc county can only bc checked, and a
proper regard for law enforced, by a feailess and
rigid discharge of duty, without respect lo per?
sons, by thc grand and petit juries.
In conclusion, the grand jury recognize and
gratcluliv acknowledge thc very valuable lu?
st ructions they have received in thc execution or
their office from the luminous charge given to
them by his honor, the presiding judge; and they
desire also to acknowledge the prompt courtesy
and assistance they have received at the hands of
all the officers or this honorable court. All or
which is respectrully submitted.

People's National Bank.
CHARLESTON, February ic, 1870.
At a meeting of the Board of Directors, held
this day, thc following preamble and resolutions
were unanimously adopted :
HENRY COBIA, the president of this bank, has
been removed from our midst by the Giver of all
good gifts; and'while we bow in submission to
the Divine will, we do not think lt unbecoming to
give expression to our sorrows. Born and reared
.among the influences so dear to our people, he
became a fair representative of that class which
gives tone and character to thc leading mer?
chants of our city.
At an early age he began manfully to contend
with life's practical realities, and by lils steady
industry, firm Integrity and high moral worth,
he advanced himself to positions of honor and
trust, and held them io the last day of his useful
life, without Incurring the envy which so often
follows closely upon success.
A spirit of faithful earnestness marked his
whole career In the discharge of whatever dulles
he was called by his fellow-cltlzens to assume ;
and this striking characteristic contributed no
little in securing to him the esteem of our com?
munity. If wo can recall one more prominent
feature than all which make the upright roan, lt
was his strength of purpose which he invariably
exhibited la the accomplishing of whatever he
undertook to perform. Laboring with an untir?
ing zeal, and devoting his whole energy and at?
tention to attaining an end, who will feel surprise
In reviewing the success which marked his way
in lire's earnest struggle? That success, that
prosperity, are well known to us and to the com?
munity at large. Nor were his worth and usefut
ness appreciated by us alone-others claimed his
helping hand and sought the aid or his clear
Judgment and the counsel or his valuable expe?
rience-others paid their tribute to his worth, and
solicited his consideration. This he was ever
ready to give, and, laying aside the thought or
seir, he contributed freefy his time and the sug?
gestions or a well regulated mind to the general
prosperity or the community in which he lived.
While we thus speak of him in lils capacity of a
citizen, It ls not Inappropriate to express our ap?
preciation of him as a man. Those or us who enjoy?
ed the privilege or associating with him as compan?
ions In his hours or social Intercourse, can well
bear testimony to bis urbanity and generosity.
His warm, affectionate sympathy has often help
' ed to smooth our difficulties in lire; and his kind ad?
vice, so orten and apprcciatingly received, has con?
tributed to remove obstacles and give light to our
sometimes clouded Judgment. '
Ho has passed from us, and wc are sensible of
the deep loss we have sustained. Others will be
called to assume the duties he so well performed ;
but the cares and influences of changeful life
cannot rob us or his memory. The example or
his lire will be ever present to oar minds, and ir
guided by a light so clear and actuated by motives
as pure as were his, the same success must marie
our end as that which crowned his efforts.
We feel assured that a community shares with
us our loss, and that this simple tribute to his
memory will meet with a response from every one
who has an appreciation of excellence and worth.
We unite with those who have sustained a
greater loss in the severing of a more tender tie,
In doing honor to his memory, and extend to
them our earnest srapathy In their bereavemebt.
Resolved, That In the death of our president,
thc late HENRY COBIA, this bank bas been de?
prived or a highly valuable ofllccr, one who hos.
endeared hlmseir to us, not only by lils integrity
and usefulness, but for those excellences or
heart and mind so rarely united, and one who
so largely contributed to the prosperity of this
Resolved, That a page In our minute book bc
Inscribed with his name and dedicated to his
Resolved, That a copy of this preamble and ac?
companying resolutions be forwarded to the
family or our deceased president, and that these
proceedings be published in the dally papers.
Extract from the minutes.

CHERAW, S. C., September 23,1809.
Messrs. Kinsman <?. Bowell :
DEAR Sms-*In regard to Mapcs' superphos?
phate, I think lt par excellence the rdrtlllzer of
thc present time. I have tried others, but they
could not compare with this. After running off
my cotton rows four feet apart, I threw two fur?
rows together and then split them out with a
small shovel, sowing the phosphate In the drills;
arterwards completed the bcd. Thc cotton came
up as well as lt was possible for lt to do. It will
double Itself In the yield. I have no rust. My
neighbor's crops are almost destroyed.^ by it. I
tried on turnips In the liquified state, three gal?

pS-WEAT DOES REASON SAY?
Thc little mongoose when bitten by a deadly ser?
pent resorts to a certain plant, rats of it, and es?
capes the effect or the poison. That ls Instinct.
Human beings, on thc other hand, must depend
on reason and experience in selecting thc means
or protecting health and ure against unwhole?
some Influences. Now, what does rcson say on
this vital subject? Docs it not tells us that to In?
vigorate and purity the system ls the best way to
protect it against thc invisible poison which
generates disease? Surely lt does. Thc next
question Is, what guide shall wc follow in choos?
ing a medicinal safeguard ? Reason replies, let
your monitor bc experience. Well, the experi?
ence or eighteen years comprised lu one unbrokeu
series or satisfactory testimonials assures us that

strengthening, regulating and antiseptic proper?
ties which are not combined in the same happy
proportions m any other preparation extant.
This, therefore, ls the antidote to which reason
bids us resort when our health ls Imperilled
either by thc malaria which produces epidemic
disorders, or by any other cause, whether inhe?
rent and constitutional, or connected with our
habits, occupations and pursuits.
Thc venom ol noxious reptiles Is scarcely more
subtle and dangerous than that which lurks in
foul airand impure water. To escape the fevers,
bilious disorders, disturbances ?f thc bowels and
other serious maladies produced by these Insalu?
brious clements, It is absolutely necessary that
the stomach and all the secretive organs should
bc, so to speak, lu a robust condition. Upon thc
amount or resistance which thc vital system can
oppose to Hie deleterious Influences that assail lt,
thc safety of thc health depends, and lt ls because
