TEFFT'S SAW GUMMER AND SHARPENER.-Al?
though the saws, either circular or straight, used
in catting timber arc made of the finest tempered
.steel, the wear and tear soon dulls the teeth and
renders them comparatively useless. . A number
?of machines have been Invented to remedy this,
iand, by sharpening and gamming, or cutting
.down the teeth into the body of the saw, to res
. tore Its usefulness. The plan of drilling holes and
.cutting the piece out with a cold chisel frequent
ay fractures tbe saw, besides wearing out files
and employing several men to complete the opera?
tion. There is now on exhibition at Eason's
foundry a machine which not only cuts,
gums and sharpens the saw with ease, but
is warranted to save seventy-five per cent.
In files and do the work or eight men.
A small wheel formed of vulcanized rubber, iron
and emory ls the cutting power. This is attached
to other machinery, and by connecting pulleys
and bands ls given a speed at the rate of 2000
revolutions to the minute There is both an oscil?
lating and a rotary motion, and by the tarn of a
small har Me the operator can bring the revolving
-disk to bear upon any part of the saw. The lat?
ter is placed In front of the machine, and ls either
turned by the hand or, If straight, slipped along.
A shower of sparks ls thrown off during the ope?
raron, but the current of air created carries them
from thc face and keeps the saw cool. The prin?
ciple is very simple, but the Invention has receiv?
ed the encomiums of the best millwrights and me?
chanics in the country, who claim that it ls ad?
mirably adapted for the purpose and far better
than anything yet given to the public
The machine was Invented about two years
since at Plattsburg, N. Y., and the patent-right for
the United States purchased by Messrs. Smith A
?Jordan, who are selling the rights for the several
States. Kr. Jordan hos thc machine mentioned
above, and will show its merits to all visitors.
He has already fixed a circular saw, belonging to
Messrs. Brodie A Co., that had been condemned
as worn-out and worthless.
TUE FIREMEN'S JUBILEE IN AUGUSTA.-This
event promises to exceed in interest any celebra?
tion of the kind held since the war. The open?
handed, generous hospitality of Augusta ls pro?
verbial, and many of our firemen have a lively
recollection of tbe kindly treatmeut experienced
from their Augusta brethren at a previous visit.
The Augusta boys feel a just pride In their record,
and intend making the celebration of Tuesday an
-event that shall never be forgotten. Every pre
p?xatlon has been made, and Augusta win, for
the next few days, be the liveliest city in the
State. Mrs. Oates' dramatic and operatic troupe
will perform at Glrardey's Opera House, Pro"
lesser King will give a balloon ascension at
.3 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, and the
citizens and authorities of Augusta will vie
with each other ia extending the hospi?
talities of their city to the visiting firemen.
Mrs. Oates will present a beautiful wreath to
?ash or the three companies from Charleston.
TrfsBe wreaths are highly ornamental and W??
be prized by the recipients as a cherished me?
mento of their visit and of the charming donor.
The Marion, Young America and Hook and
Ladder No. 1, are the visiting companies from
Charleston, but delegations from the Phoenix,
Vigilant, Washington and Stonewall will also
attend. The members of the Vigilant will go In
charge of the reel of the Marlon. The engines
were placed on the cars at the Ann street depot
yesterday afternoon, and thc visitors will leave
ior Augusta to-day. Nor will Charleston be the
enly city whoselflre department ls represented In
Augusta. Columbia, Savannah, Macon and At?
lanta win each send specimen firemen.
The Palmetto Fire Company, of Columbia,
found that after they had made their arrange?
ments Tor thc visit that they had literally count
?d without their hosts, for the hotels and board?
ing houses or Augusta were either too full or de?
clined to furnish quarters. The Columbians were
bound togo, and sent word that they would
bring their blankets and try it camp fashion dur?
ing their stay. This, or course, could not be
thought of, and the Augusta firemen leased the
old City Hotel building for the Columbia com?
pany, who will convert lt Into a temporary bar?

by the Mayor of Augusta and the Chieror the Fire
Department to act as judges at the contest: From

Academy of Music-Thc Lust Appear?
ance of thc Oates Troupe.
Tlie Oates Burlesque and Operatic Troupe
discarded burlesque altogether on Saturday
night, in order to show their strength in broad
farce and domestic melodrama. Mrs. Oates play?
ed "Collu" lu the "Youth that never saw a Wo?
man," and "Nan"' in "Good for Nothing." In the
last named character her acting was especially
natural. A pretty medley was sung by Mrs. Oates
with her accustomed skill, and was peremptorily
encored. Mrs. Sheldon had but a shadowy some?
thing to do in "Solon Shingle," and not much
more in the opening piece, but she acted with
spirit and taste. "Solon Shingle" was, wc pre?
sume, intended to be the "war horse" of the
evening, ami Mr. Sheldon made an ex?
cellent "Solon." There is, however, very
little merit In the piece, which is a queer
mixture of vulgarity and improbability. The
acting or Mr. Thorpe as "Harry Conkllu," in
'Good for Nothing," ?ud as "Robert Howard,"
a "Solon Shingle," was so unaffected and na?
tural as to impress the audience very favorably,
in spite or thc Tact that thc roles which he under?
took were not Intrinsically striking.
The house was well lilied, aud thc audience
ttstiOcd by rrequcnt applause their appreciation
or thc big dish or amusement set before them.
It is expected that thc Oates company will
soon return tu Charleston, and will then produce
some highly attractive novelties la the way of
burlesque and the drama.
Academy of Music-LaRut's Minstrels.
To-night La Ruc a lamons band or negro min.
strels, who have won so much renown In the
cities or the North, make their first appearance at
the Academy. Their entertainment comprises
many features or merit surpassing any perform?
ance or like character which has appeared In
Charleston slrifcc the war. Among the troupe are
a number or voices or great cultivation, sweetness
and melody, and their chorus and ballads are ren?
dered with linc effect. Signor Ricardo is the pos?
sessor or thc most remarkable soprano voice.
Many rcmale singers, who set themselves down
in thc prima donna Hst, would bc put to the blush
before Ricardo. Thc other stars or the company
are equally attractive. Minstrels are always so
popular in Charleston that this superior troupe
will be sure to draw a crowded house. Seats may?
be secured In advance at thc box office without
The Berger Family Swiss Belt Ringers.
The new hali of the Academy of Muslo will be
inaugurated as a place or amusement to-night,
by the well-known Swiss Bell Ringers. This
troupe has been greatly improved since their last
visit, by the addition of new performers, and can
now offer thc best entertainment of its kimi ever
given to the public. Sol Smith Bussell is well
known'in this community as the best racial artist
that has ever delighted an audience. His imper?
sonations are capital, and the facility with
which he commands his mobile features is really
wonderful. Anna Berger, and thc other mem?
bers ot the ramify, arc admirable performers on
the bells. Miss Maud Stanley ls a vocalist or
superior merit and a recent acquisition to the
troupe. Thc performance ls varied, and comprises
acting and singing. Thc entrance to the hall ls
to thc left of thc lower ticket office, and persons
should be careful where they purchase their
> St. Joseph's Pair.
The second week of St. Joseph's Fair, at the
Hibernian Halt, begins to-day, no changes being
made ia the hours of opening and closing. Busy
hands have been at work repairing the ravages of
eager visitors, and it is expected that the hall
will be as brilliant to-night as when it first open?
ed. A myriad articles of usc and beauty adorn
the tables, the comedians and tragedians or the
Academy, No. 2, tread thc mimic boards, and
solid and fluid refreshments are dispensed with a
Altogether, no more charming place than thc
St. Joseph's Fair can be found in which to spend
an evening. It has all thc attractions which can
be given by the diligence ol fair women and the
Industry or gallant men, and to these ls added
the crowning attraction-that the object of the
gathering is one which comes homo to the heart
of every Catholic in Charleston. St. Joseph's
Church, whose earnest and unselfish pastor has
been slow to urge hts claims upon the Catholic
purse, is encumbered with debt, which caa be
paid by a united effort, and with little sacrifice of
comfort or convenience. The pastor has done all
that he could do, and so have the congre?
gation. Now they come forward to their
rellow-Catholic3 and ask for aid, an aid
which cannot be refused. So far the rair has
not had the foll support which ls its due. There
ls time to make up for the opportunities which
have been lost. And the Catholic congregations
in the city surely will not be dear when they are
called upon to help a sister church. Something
more than sympathy ls needed. St. Joseph's Fair
needs substantial help and a crowd of visitors, all
of them ready todo what they eau for thc com?
mon good. The Charleston Catholics most ponder
these things; and, ir their duty and their respon?
sibility come home to them, the Hibernian Hall
will be thronged with fresh faces for several
nights to come.
Thc Tremaine Brothers.
Holmes' Lyceum was opened to a good house
on Saturday night. The performance was
pleasingly varied with selections from an
extensive repertoire of songs, glees and chor?
uses. Thc powers or the Burdett organ were
tully displayed, and thc audience kept in a
good humor to thc close. Tkc entertainment
will be repeated this evening in behalt or thc coo.
grcgatlou of Trinity Church, aud should commaud
a full house.
"Wicked Ben"-The Learned Pig. .
Among thc multitudinous attractions which
enliven our city Just now, thc educated porker,
who holds forth on King street, nearly opposite
Clifford, should not be neglected. "Wicked Ben,"
lt ls true, does uot draw houses us large as those
which grace the Academy; but as he is readyJor
a performance at any hour within thc limits of
reason, the aggregate of wonder-stricken behold?
ers who enjoy his feats is quite large. Should- he
remain herc long enough to become a legal resi?
dent of thc State, his rare sagacity,-combined
with his evident popularity among the colored
people, might make 1dm a formidable candidate
for the Legislature next fall.

The Case of the Hon. Alfred Hager-Let?
ter from U. S. District Attorney- Cor?
COLUMBIA, S. C., February 17.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
.?"IR-I notice going the rounds of the
Charleston parters, that the case of the United
States vs. Alfred Huger has been dismissed In the
Supreme Court, and the Impression is conveyed
that the suit ls dismissed upon its merits. This
is not true.
The case has been dismissed by the Supremo
Court on purely technical grounds, viz: because
Mr. Hager's counsel neglected to enter up a Judg?
ment upon the verdict rendered under the ruling
of Judge Bryan. The record was hastily made up
and sent to thc Supreme Court, this omission of
entry of judgment escaping notice.
The defect In the record was discovered at this
last term of thc Supreme Court when the case
came up Tor tria!. A writ of certiorari was im?
mediately sent by the Supreme Court to the Uni?
ted States Circuit Court In this State, requiring
the completed record to be sent up.
t'pon examination or the record of this court,
it was round that the judgment had not been en?
tered up. Mr. Huger'a counsel was requested to
enter up the judgment. This they peremptorily
declined to do, and for the express reason that if
the>/ did a trial upon the merits of the case would
be had in the Supreme Court this term. Applica?
tion was then made to his honor. Judge Bryan,
to order an entry or judgment, and he declined to
do so. Thus it has been round impossible, tot thc
time, to complete the record, technically, so as to
obtain a hearing at this term or the Supreme
At thc next term or the court, thc verdict here
torore obtained will either be set aside or a Judg?
ment entered as it should have beeu two years
ago by Mr. Hager's counsel.
From this statement, It will be apparent to all
that Mr. Huger, through his counsel,has expressly
efuse'l, and upon purely technical grounds, to al?
low hi3 case to come to trial upon its merits in
the Supreme Court.
ir lie or his counsel had felt that profound con?
fidence in the charge of his houor, Judge Bryan,
under which the verdict was rendered, why
should they have taken an advantage, purely
technical, to delay a trial of the cause ? They
know very well they have obtained simply delay,
and that the case can and will be, in due time
again in the Supreme Court.
Yours, very respectfully,
D. T. CORBIN,
United States Attorney.
Thc Late Henry Cobla.
Surrounded by the sable emblems of grief tor
the loss of their late president, the associate pas?
tor, after a few pertinent remarks yesterday
morning, read from tho altar or St. John's Lnth
rau Church, to the congregation there assembled,
?he subjoined extracts furnished from the records
of their vestry:
Resolved, That the preamble and resolutions
lust read be unanimously adopted and spread on
thc minutes or this vestry ; that the name or HENRY
COBIA bc inscribed on a blank page or our record
book; that the present proceedings or this body
bc presented through one of our pastors to the
congregation or St. John's Lutheran Church; that
a copy or them be supplied the family of the late
HENRY COBIA, president of this vestry and cor?
poration, and that they bc published In the Luth
ran Visitor, of Columbia, S. C., and lu the Courier
and NEWS or this city.
TRIBUTE BY TUB VESTRY OP ST. JOHN'S LUTHERAN
CHURCH, IN HONOR Or THE MEMORY" OF THE
LATE HENRY COBIA, ITS PRESIDENT.
Self-immolation on the altar or duty and be?
nevolence has involved our community in a com?
mon gloom, and deprived this church, especially,
of one of Its most highly esteemed and cherished
members. Having to all human appearance pass?
ed the crisis which seemed to threaten at any
moment the end of his eminently useful ure, and
rallied to a degree that inspired hope or a rapid
convalescence, lt may be readily conceived, witt
what saddening effect we received the melan?
choly intelligence, during the hour of divine ser?
vice on Sabbath morning, February 13th, 1870,
that HENRY COBIA, late President of this Vestry,
and also of the congregation of St. John's Church,
had, at about the hour bf 9 A. M. that
morning, peacefully, calmly and In entire
consciousness, passed to his eternal rest and re?
ward. We profoundly mourn this sad bereavement
and heavy chastening by tho Divine hand; and
while here with riven hearts and bowed heads, to
give perpetuity to our estimate of tbe worth of
thc lamented deceased, let us give ex : -else also
to those excellencies of raith which will mould us
into willing submissiveness to, and an entire ac?
quiescence In, the decrees or that Providence
whose visitations such erring beings as wc ere
should never for an Instant attempt even to hold
lu question. Other pens than ours, doubtless,
will seek to do flt honor to thc memory or the late
HENRY COBIA. Those rare virtues which had
marked him a leading and controlling mind in
thc dig?rent maris ot trade, commerce and
Onanie, and tho?c yet higher ones which had so
constantly and unostentatiously employed him
In extending kludncss and relier to thc widow
and the orphan, will all receive our enduring re?
cord. But rrom us, whose relations with him
throughout a long series or years had been or the
closest and most cordial character, quite a differ
ent aail perhaps more grateful record may be ex?
pected. Without Invading thc sanctity, there?
fore, or any circle, or trenching In any way on the
prerogatives specially belonging to any organiza?
tion to which he may have been attached, we claim
lt as our privilege particularly, to hold up for Imita?
tion and emulation among ourselves as a vestry
and congregation, those exalted and sacred char?
acteristics which had always made thc late HEN?
RY COUIA usefully conspicuous and prominent In
excellence or character os one of our number.
Always devotedly attached to this church and her
various Institutions, and ever scrupulously zeal?
ous to advance her best and most vital interests,
he never failed, either as our associate or head, in
endeavoring to influence iw ror good by his time?
ly and judicious counsel and ripe judgment in the
same direction. As practical and quick of appre?
hension, as he was courteous and rrlendly In dis?
position, oar late lamented head, although mov?
ing among us almost noiselessly In the prosecu?
tion or his plans, his influence aud worth, never?
theless were always acknowledged and greatly
reit. With a keon appreciation or the true ameni?
ties or lire, aud the conviction that the exercise
or those amenities should invariably prove a guid?
ing Influence and power at this board, our late
president, both by precept and example, ever
sought to provoke lu us a full and sacred observ?
ance or them. As embracing all and crowning
all or real worth that can then bc said or the late
HENRY COUIA, we would crave no truer sentence
cut In thc marble covering lils sleeping dust, than
that HENRY COBIA Hoed, and died a CHRISTIAN.
Resolved, That in thc death or the late HENRY
COUIA, this vestry has lost au associate and head
whom they greatly esteemed, and thc corpora?
tion or St. John's Lutheran Church a president,
whose place it will indeed prove difficult to sup?
Resolved, That our commou communion, In
which the lamented deceased had manirestcd a
deep interest, has also sustained a great loss, and
will, wc kuow, feel consoled with ns In the assur?
ance that his peac -lui ami happy end ls but
another evidence, when all earthly props are fail
lug, or the sustaining power or that religion,
whose profession, even from carly manhood, he
bad always greatly adorned.
Resolved, That the warmest sympathies of this
Vestry arc extended to the afflicted family of the
late il KN KV COBIA, and the congregation or St.
John's Lutheran Chureh, In this their day or sore
trial and sad bereavement, and that our action ot
this hour lind such expression as this Hoard may

?gg-A. TORPID SYSTEM.-SOMETIMES,
without any assignable cause,, tbe physical
strength and animal spirits give way, and a
strange torpor falls alike on the- body and Intel?
lect. There is little or no pain perhaps, but the
natural vigor and elasticity or the nervous and
muscular system seems to have departed, and an
indifference to thc pleasures of life, and even of
its grave responsibilities, takes thc place of that
earnest interest in both which characterizes
every well balanced mind when in a healthy con?
This state of partial collapse is often the pre?
monitory symptoms of some serious malady. It
Indicates unmistakably that the vital powers are
languishing and need a stimulant. In such cases
the effect of a few doses of HOSTETTER'S
STOMACH BITTERS ls wonderfully beneficial.
The great tonic wakes up tho system from Its
drowse. The secretions and the circulation re?
ceive a new impetus. The relaxed nerves recover
their elasticity under the operations of the spectlc,
like the slackened strength of a musical instru?
ment in the process of tuning.. Lethargy and
debility arc replaced by energy and vigor, the
spirits rise, and life that almost seemed a burden
whUe the season of depression lasted, becomes
once more enjoyable. That such a radical change
should be produced by a remedy entirely devoid
of thc powerful alkaloids and minerals so exten?
sively used In modern practice, may seem in?
credible to those who pin their raith on the
medicinal efficacy ol active poisons, but if these
skeptics will take the trouble to inquire of those
who have tested thc corrective and alterative
virtues or the BITTERS uHder the circumstances
described, they will find thc statement to be trne.

That any sick man survived the treatment
of ilfty year? ago, must be considered a proof
that haman beings are very hard to alu
rho lancet, calomel, cantharldes and drastic pur?
gatives were then the order of the day. The phy
?lelan played into the hands of the apothecary,
ind the unfortunate patient was drenched morn*
ng, noon and night with pros trat lng medicines.
?Ve live In a moro rational and conscientious era.
Hie Importance of supporting Nature In Its conflict
Tit n tiH ease ia ii ow understood. ^Complaints In
.heniselves weakening are no longer aggravated
>y artificial depletion. They are met with TONICS
.hat rally the vital powers and enable them to de
eat the eaemy. Chief among these allies of Na?
nre, In Ita-battles with sickness, ls
This-wonderful vegetable restorative is the sheet
incbor of tbe feeble and debilitated. As a cordial
er the aged and deorepiddt has no equal among
stomachics. Aa a remedy, for the nervous weakness
to which tbc tender ses are especially subject, lt
s superseding every other stimulant and nervina.
inAll climates, tnapleai, temperate os fulgid, it
acts as a sp?cule in every species, o? disorder
which undermines the bodily strength and
breaks dowa the animal spirits. Wherever lt
ls introduced it becomes a standard article
-a medicinal staple. Druggists, although their
profit upon lt ls small, find it absolutely
necessary to keep a preparation for which
everybody Inquires, and for which nobody
will] accept a substitute. It ls to-day the most
popular medicine In the civilized. world.
Extensively as lt ls ^advertised, Its best ad?
vertisement ls thc beneficial result which
uniformly follows Its use. Every bottle sold In?
sures the sale of at least half a dozen more. Un*
like other stimulants, lt braces and fortifies the
system without exciting undue cerebral action,"
The cheering effect which it produces upon the
mind ls not momontary, but permanent. There ls
no subsequent depression. It does not, as is the
case with all other stimuli, beget a craving for ex
eltants. On the other hand, lt soothes and calms
the nor veSjCombln ing, st range as the anomaly may
seem, inequalities of a sedative and gentle ano
dyne with those of a tonic and lnvlgorant.
The perfect purity of all its Ingredients, their
admirable adaptation to the purposes .they
are Intended to?sub6erve, the judicious pro
portions In walch they are combined, and
the scientific skin with which they are blend,
ed, render this famous .article at once the
most potent and the most harmless of all known
tonics and alteratives.
