OBSTRUCTIVE FIRE IX HAMBURG.- Thc Ham?
burg Brewery, Messrs. Legier Bros., proprietors,
was nearly destroyed by fire late Wednesday
uig'it. Their los3 is estimated at about $5000.
CITY/ TAXES.-The time for thc payment of |
City taxes has been extended to the 20th instant,
when twenty per cent, will be added to all who
fail to go up and pay their flrst third. We call
particular attention to the no*ice of the City
Treasurer In to-day's NEWS, as the twenty per
cent, will ocrtalnly be added to all delinquents.
OUR PRICES CURRENT.-WC especially invite
thc attention of our merchants to THE NEWS
Prices Current, Issued this morning. Made up
-?-Uh the utmost care, and handsomely printed
with entirely new type, lt forms, with the busi?
ness card of the house forwarding it. the most
attractive and welcome weekly commercial cir
ctijftr that can be used. Price, for ten copies or
more, with business cards two and a hair ccats
per copy; single copies five cents.
PATBNT HARROW AND SEED-SOWER.-In the
American Artisan of April C, we find an engrav?
ing and a description or the patent harrow and
seed-sower, Invented by Mr. Augustine L. Taveau.
Tills Invention ls spoken of very highly, and was
awarded a first class premium and gold medal at
the late Maryland Agricnltnral State Fair. Mr.
Taveau ls a Charlestonlan, who emigrated after
the war to Chaptico, St. Mary's County, Mary?
land, where he now resides.
SOUTH CAROLINA CENTRAL.-The Sumter
Watchman learns that a corps ot engineers, or
which Mr. George Earle is chief, ls now engaged
m making the permanent survey or location of
the South Carolina Central Railroad, and that the
work of grading has commenced at Gourdln's.
' This looks like something practical. The bope is
entertained or being able to reach Sumter in
twelve months. The people of Clareadon are
moving In th's matter In earnest, aod through
the energy of Dr. J. J. Ingram and others, the
subscriptions In land have been considerably in?
creased. Clarendon greatly needs railroad facili?
ties, and we trust the efforts in this direction
may prove successful.
"WHAT A MOON !"-To-night we will have
an unusually large moon. In January, and also
in March, there were two new moons, while In
the Intervening February there was no moon;
which is a combination of very rare occurrence,
not having taken place for at least forty years
past, back to A. D. 1830, further than which this
deponent has not calculated. This peculiarity
arises simply from the form of our arbitrary cal?
endar. But still more worthy of note is the natu?
ral fact, that we have an exact concurrence of
full moon with the perigee of the mooa's orbit;
a: which time the moon's apparent size is the
largest it ever is. Such an occurrence cannot
come oftener than once in twenty years (and 107
days,) and one so exact as this one is not likely to
occur for several centuries.
CRUMBS.-Yesterday was Thursday of Holy
Week, sometimes termed Maundy-Thursday or
the day of thc mandate, "Do this in remembrance
. of Me.?
The market will be closed at 9 o'clock this
The i cw steamer or the German Fire Company
is expected on the steamship Charleston, which
will arrive to-day.
C?ptala T. B. Johnston has assumed the duties
of postmaster at Sumter, and contemplates some
decided Improvements In the present building,
looking to the comfort and convcnlcuce of the
D. 0. Clark, A. Jackson and A. Smith have boen
elected trustees of the public schools for the school
district of Christ Church Parish.
.SORGHUM RKFINER.-Quite a number ol our
citizens yesterday visited the refinery of Mr. F.
G. Cart, (on East Bay.) one or the firm of the
Stewart Manufacturing and Refining Company, of
Kentucky, to witness the experiment of manu?
facturing first-class sugar and syrup from the
Imphee cane. The experiments were eminently
satisfactory. It seems to us that it would bc ad?
vantageous for our planters to make their own
sugar and syrups. The cane which will yied
from one to two hundred gallons of syrup to the
aoref is a certain crop, as weather does not in the
least affect it. Thc machinery necessary for the
manufacture of thc sugar and syrup is very
cheap, and not at all complicated. The matter is
worth the attention of planters and others. Thc
experiments will be carried on from day to day.
The public are invited to attend.
GOOD FRIDAY.-Yesterday was Thursday of |
Holy Week, sometimes termed Maundy-Thursday,
or the day of the mandate, "Do this ia remem?
brance of Me." It ls followed by Good Friday,
which is set apart to commemorate the crucifix
ion or Jesu*, in Bogland, Good Friday and
Christmas arc thc only close holidays of the year,
w lien the shops arc all closed and the churches
opened. The day is observed in the Greek, Ro?
man. Anglican and Episcopal Churches as a sol?
emn period ol prayer and fasting. In tho Catho?
lic Churches of this city thc prescribed services
for thc day, the Mass of tue Prcaanctlfled and the
Veneration of thc Cross, will take place.
Good Friday ls followed by Easter Even, the
last day of Lent. It is a vigil. The flrst Easter
Even was a High Sabbath; now it ls but a Satur
day, upon which, in quiet and sadness, are held
the concluding services of Lent.

.or ha boas corpus upon application of E. Wiesto,
Attorney or Flora Osma, the application rccltinr.

CHURCHES.-Yesterday being Maunday-Thersday,
wu9 closely observed by the members of the

At thc Cathedral Chapel thc alinr was adorned
with flowers of striking hue, and thC3c, with tho
shining lamps and glowing decorations, made the
whole structure almost gorgeous in its richness
At St. Patrick's thc altar was arranged In pyra?
midal form. Flowers and glancing lights were in
profusion, and thc pallid beauty of the Dead
Christ gleaming out from the mass of sombre
green, gave a charming finish to tho graceful
scene. After night all thc building was twinkling
with light, the myriad of tapers being the gift of
the generous congregation.
At St. Joseph's, also, thc decoration* were in
every way worthy of the church and the occasion.
This church drew to its silent aisles a long linc of
At St. Mary's, thc Lady Altar was changed Into
a repository, the High Altar standing bleak and
bare as the wood of the bitter Cross. The Reposi?
tory was draped with elaborate curtains of thread
lace, and were looped np with crowns or natural
violets. Thc steps of the Repository were veiled
by massive vases of choice exotics, while thc
twinkling tapers and soberly burning lights of
high degree, gave the crowning charm to all thc
St. Peter's Church was very handsomely deco?
rated. The pillars of thc alt.:r were twined with
evcrg cens, and the altar steps and altar were
adorned with a profusion of flowers. An abun?
dance of lights made the church a brilliant sight,
and all the decorations w.rc Tich and In good
taste. The colored Catholics are evidently rond
of their little church.

pS- HELP FOR THE MISERABLE.
No wonder that the face of the dyspeptic bas a
dragged, worn, hopeless expression that is pitiful
to see. No wonder that the miserable marty to
indigestion ls fretful, Irritable and unsocial.
Whoever can bear the pangs of this tormenting
complaint cheerfully and with an unruffled tem?
per, ls little shore of a saint. Bat why sbould
human fortitude continue to be thus severely
tried, when an abs oin te sp?cifie for the disease is
always at hand. Everywhere within the limits
or civilization In this hemisphere, HOTETTER'S
STOMACH BITTERS ls obtainable, and the history
of the flrst case or dyspepsia In which lt has been
administered In vain, has yet to bo written. The
sickness at the stomach, the sense of weakness
and stupor, thc feeling of emptiness and hollow,
ness before eating, and of oppression afterwards,
the fluttering or the pulse, tho intenso nervous Ir?
ritation, the morbid indisposition to exertion, the
weariness of life and indifference to all its plea?
sures, which are among thc symptoms of the dis?
ease in Its chronic form, are rapidly ameliorated
hy the tonic operation of this palatable vegetable
restorative, which seems to renovate and quicken
all thc dormant forces of thc system, and rouse
thc mind from the apathy and gloom Inseparable
rrom a derangement of the digestive and secre?
tive functions. In erdlnary cases, a few weeks
suffices :o complete the cure, -but when the dis?
ease ls complicated, as lt ofrea ia, with torpidity
of the liver, severe constipation, impurity of the
blood, and a sluggish circulation, a longer time
may be required. Persevere, however, and the
result ls certain. Au encouraging Improvement
will be perceptible from day to day, and thc con?
valescent, knowing and feeling that he or she ls
on the high road to health, will await the happy
issue with comparative patience._aprl5 6
