SALES OF REAL ESTATB.-There was quite a
?large amount of real estate sold yesterday, and
.good prices were generally obtained. The sales
were as follows:

sLx reet, with a depth or one hundred and sixty
Ifiro reet, and designated as No. 24, tn the plat of

The Second Patti Concert.
Charleston is not in these days, it must bo
confessed, a wildly demonstrative place, but Miss
Patti, by her marvellous skill and evident deter?
mination to please, has awakened a decree of
musical enthnsiasm altogether unknown since the
close or the war.
Last night the applause which greeted the
prima donna was, ir possible, more thunderous
than on Monday. There was the same purity or j
intonation, chasteness of delivery and precision
of finish which marked Miss Patti's singing at the
first concert, and her vocah>athn was to the full
as wonderful. The truth ls, that very few
among the audience thoroughly appreciated the
immensity of thc work which was performed
with so little apparent effort. They heard, they
wondered and admired, but did not remember
that Carlotta Patti, as a singer, has not, at this
moment, a superior on thc operatic or
concert stage, while it is very doubtful
ir there ls more than one who ls her equal. Ade?
lina Patti, Christine Nilsson, Pauline Lucca, Ilma
di Mu rs ta, may have larger voices, but not one or
them has greatei compass, and not more than
one has the same wonderful fluency and flexibili?
ty or vocalization. There is no straining or gasp?
ing. The melodious tones glide rrom the lips with
exquisite evenness and smoothness, from the low?
est notes In her register to the famous sol diese,
said to be the highest note now sung by any
vocalist. Gassier, if we remember aright, sang
no higher than the sol.
The cavatina from ,:La Travlata,'" with the bril?
liant allegro movement, was sung deliciously, as
was the charming bolero composed for Miss Patti
by Mr. Ritter. The famous quartette from "Lucia"
was gloriously sung by Miss Patti, and Messrs.
Squires, Ritter and Hermanns. The audience de?
manded an encore or the bolero, and would not
be denied, and ir applause counts for anything,
there was a strong desire to encore again and
again. Miss Patti humored them lu this one In?
stance, singing with exquisite taste and archness
the ballad of."Com?a' thro' the Rye."
Herr Hermanns was set down for two songs in
the vernacular. To the old "I'm Afloat" he gave
new lire and vigor. He sang splendidly, nad was
applauded vociferously, as was Mr. Squires,
whose ballad singing Is deservedly admired.
Mr. Prume handled his violin with wonderful
skill, the mellowness of his tones being no less
conspicuous than the rapidity and brilliancy of
bis execution. Mr. Ritter played deliciously.
This gentleman, who enjoys a continental reputa?
tion, is as remarkable for breadth of style and
thoughtfulness of manner as for dashing vivacity
of execution. Mr. Ritter ls the finest pianist
whom we know to have visited Charleston.
Mr. Colby ls a capital leader, and accompanies
with marked discretion and skill.
So ended the engagement, by far too short, cf
the Patti Concert Company.
Grand Italian Opera.
The next attraction promised us by Manager
Ford is a short season of Italian Opera, opening
on Monday next. The incomparable Brlgnoli,
with oar own Carolina prima donna, Miss Mccul?
loch, whose voice ls said to be wonderfully im?
proved since we last heard her, are supported by
a company sufficiently strong to bring out, in
good style, the operas of Martha, II Trovatorc,
Lucretia Borgia and Lucia di Lammermoor. It
will be a great treat for our citizens who have not
heard a real opera for more than ten years. In
order to make everything in readiness for a
proper presentation of the operas named, thc
Academy will be closed for the remainder of the
The Richings1 Opera Troupe,
comprising forty-six persons, or whom twenty
six are in the chorus, will appear at the Academy
or Music on or about the 25th or April. The prin?
cipal singers are: Caroline rt Bernard, Emma
Howson, and Mrs. H. Drayton, prima donnas;
Annie Kemp Bowler, contralto; Brookhonse Bow?
ler and Pierre Bernard, tenors; Henry Drayton,
baritone; H. C. Peakes, basso; S. Behrens, con?
ductor; A. S. Pennoyer, business manager.
Mr. Jo. Jefferson.
The fact that this gentleman, who ranks first
among llvli g comedians, for the past two eve?
nings was among the audience of the Academy,
has awakened a very general hope that his pres?
ent chance visit to Charleston may be the precur?
sor of a professional visit later In the season. It
ls certain that whenever he may appear on our
boards, he will meet with a welcome more cordial
and more substantial than any other actor could
j The halls of the Academy of Mnstc will be
graced this evening by a heterogeneous collection
of gay and restive maskers. Th? Purim bal
masque has always been celebrated for the rich?
ness and originality of the costumes, and the ex?
uberance of run that ls engendered. Thc ball or
this evening will be not a whit inferior to its pre?
decessors, and will be an occasion long to be re?
membered by the participants.
Wyman, the Wizard,
still continues to attract large houses by his leg?
erdemain and liberality. The entertainment ls
superior to any of a similar character that have
appeared In this city since the last visit or Prores
sor Wyman, and age has only ripened his
experience. The tricks, mysterious dlsap
pearanc s and ventriloquism, cannot fall to
Interest, while thc lifelike automata arc
a feature that deserve thc applause re?
ceived. Aside from the "merits of the perform?
ance, the distribution of girts would alone draw
an audience, as thefact ls now well established
that Wyman ls not chary of his favors, and green?
backs, workboxes. and other useful and orna?
mental articles are presented at the close of thc
exhibition without regard to cost.
LIBERALITY.-We learn that Professor Wy?
man, the world-renowned ventriloquist and ma
gician, has, wita.his accustomed liberality, ten?
dered a benefit to thc Ladies' Mutual Aid Associa?
tion. They have selected Friday night, the 18th
instant, lt is seldom that our community can,
at the same time that they aid a noble charity,
have an opportunity of enjoyment such as this
exhibition will afford. Tickets for that evening
caa be procured at the bookstores and principal

Quite a number of musical and dramatic celebrl
ties are now stopping at the Charleston Hotel, as

at the Secretary of State's oftlec, that 'thc Code'
received the requisite signa:ure of the Governor
and is now a law. The State printer, J. \V. Denny,
will have the Code published In pamphlet form
In a few days, for the benefit of members of thc
legal profession and such others as feel interest?
ed. The price will bc one dollar."
ON A BENDER.-The Savannah River has
been ou a bernier ever sinoo last Friday, and at
Augusta, on TSunday, had attained a height of
thirty feet six inches, the highest point reached
since 1S65. Considerable property in thc lower
streets of thc city was destroyed, and great ?Lim?
age done to thc plantations. On several of the
streets there was a sufficient quantity or water to
answer the demands or bateau navigation. On
upper Jones street a considerable number oi these
light draft vessels were employed for purposes or
convenience to water-bound residents.
LOST AND FOUND AGAIN.-The frequent in?
stances where lost property has been rcstortjd by
using the columns or THE NEWS proves the effi?
cacy or advertising In a journal that ls read by
every one in the community. Yesterday a well
known merchant or this city was made happy by
the recovery of a fine pair of gold spectacles, that
were lost while visiting different parts of the city
In the course of business. He advertised his loss
In THE NEWS, and the spectacles once more grace
his nose, having been found by a little colored
girl in the street. Both finder and loser gained
by the advertisement.
THE CASE OF MRS. CATHERINE A. PATTERSON
vs. the Equitable Life Assurance Society or the
United States, to recover $10,00(\ the amou it or the
policy he'd by her deceased husband lu said com?
pany, was concluded in the Superior Court,
Savannah, on Saturday last, by a verdict ror the
plaintiff. Dr. James T. Patterson, who rormerly
lived In this city, died suddenly in Savannah, In
April, 18C8. HU wife was put upon trial ror thc
murder or her husband, and was acquitted.
When the verdict was rendered Saturday, a tu?
multuous cheer, says thc News, rang through the
court-room. The lady who had been branded by
public opinion asa murderer had passed through
the ordeal, we trust, like gold purlflcd by the fire,
and with a Arm gaze can uow face her accusers.
WHITTEMORE.-This reverend scoundrel
made a speech In Sumter on Saturday last, in the
Emanuel Church, thc county commissioners hav?
ing refused to allow him to speak In the court?
house. About one hundred persons assembled.
He said he regretted, but was not ashamed of
having sold the cadetship, as the money for it
had been used to build schoolhouses for the col?
ored people. He asked to be sent back Tor the
unexpired term, and was answered by cries or
"Yes, yes, yes." He stated that he had received
many insults and one K. K. K. letter, stating:
"Do you remember Randolph*'' "Sumter has
taken your Insolence as long as she can stand lt."
"A word to the wise," Ac.
. CRUMBS.-It is believed that Alderman Pot?

The two colored women whom Abraham Evans

Tribute of Renpect.
At the last regular meeting of thc Pioneer
Steam Fire Engine Company, the following pre?
amble and resolutions were unanimously adopt?
Since our last meeting, our ex-president, HENRY
COUIA, has been summoned away from his earth?
ly labors, and his career or userulness In this
community; and this company, among thc many
who deplored his loss, have followed with solemn
footsteps and saddened hearts thc remains of oue
who formerly, full of life and energy, was accus?
tomed to lead us in the arduous duties or our or?
Though he had retired from the active service
as a fireman, yet we have felt that he was still of
us, and the familiar form or the esteemed citizen
always brought to our mind9 the pleasant recol?
lection, undimmed by the slightest sorrow or ie
grct, ot his association with ns as a member and
officer, and we knew that his counsel and lils as
sistance would never bc wanting in time or need.
Wc arc again reminded or these services by thc
mournful event which has ended them, but they
comeback to us embittered now by the thought
that they have forever ceased, and that our honor?
ed comrade has passed from our sight.
As n member or this company, Mr. CORIA dis?
played the same sterling qualities which won ror
him the regard and esteem or all classes or his
rellow-citizens; he rose to its command, and won
from all thc encomiums ol' duty ably discharged,
and, more than that, the respect and affection of
all his associates.
None mourn him more, and we desire to put
upon record our estimation of his lire and ser?
vices, and our sorrow at his loss; therefore,
Resolved, That in thc death or HENRY COBIA.
this company mourns thc loss or a beloved and
valued comrade, the memory or whose career
among them will long be cherished and respected.
Resolved, That a blank page' in our Minute
Book bc dedicated to him, and that a copy or
these resolutions be sent io the family or thc de?
ceased, with thc expression or our sincere Sym?
pal hv in their affliction.
