SNOW IN APRIL.-The Union Times says:
"On Sunday morning last we were visited by a

the storm of 3unday, the 15th of April, 1S49. On
that occasion the eaovr fcU In Columbia two
Inches deep, and was followed by a severe black
frost, killing every vestige of vegetation. Many
at that time had thinued out their cotton, and
corn was up and promising well; but although
thc storm of last Sunday was two days later, it

corn lu this section has had time to appear above

A SAVANNAH MERCHANT IN TROUBLE.-A
merchant of Savannah, Ga., arrived in New York
a few days ago, having gone North to purchase a
quantity or rurniture from the manufacturers of
that etty and Boston. By Saturday afternoon,
April 2, he had transacted all his business, and
was preparing to go home on Sunday evening;
but at four o'clock on Saturday afternoon an
emissary of deputy sheriff Banckcr arrested him.
-and would not carry him to a friend for ball until
$20 had been paid. But by the time the mer
chant got to his friend, it was too late to get ball,
and he was sent to the Ludlow street jail. The
charge against him was that he had conspired to
defraud, made by a certain Frank, whom this mer?
chant did not know, and for whose arrest six
warrants were at that same time out He is au
Irresponsible man, not worth a cent, aud Imme?
diately after signing his affidavit disappeared.
On Wednesday, Judge Loew granted an order for
the immediato release of the merchant, who, on
the complaint of an irresponsible defrauder, had
been caused great anxiety aud lost hair a week of
valuable time, been put to an expense of $200,
aud lost, but nat least, been subjected to the con?
trol or a brutal officer. The merchant has re?
turned to Savannah, bnt he has brought a com

THE STEAMER O? TUE GEEMAS FIRE COM?
PANY.-AS stated by THE NEWS of Saturday, the
new steamer of the German Fire Company ar?
rived on la3t Friday. It was carried to Chief
Engineer Nathan's carriage repository, and on
Saturday was visited by a majority of the firemen
of the city, all or whom pronounced her a model
of strength and beauty. She is the only first-class
steamer in the department, and was made by the
Amoskeag Manufacturing Company or Manches?
ter, New Hampshire. She co? $4750, and weighs
six thousand three hundred pounds. She has two
double acting vertical pumps, foar and three
eighths inches In diameter, eight Inch stroke, two
small fee l-pump3 to supply the boiler, indepen?
dent of any supply from the main pump, and two
steam ? cylinders seven and a half-Inches
la diameter. She is so arranged that she
can be hauled either by men or horses. The
wood-work ls painted in green and gold, which,
with the elegant lamps, the profusion of Princess
metal and German silver, gives her a highly orna?
mental finish. On the right hand side of the
boiler is a shield of Gcrtnau silver, on which is in?
scribed, "German Fire Company, Charleston, S.
C., Instituted May 15th, 1SU3-In Augustus amid
apparent.'7 On the rear portion of the steamer,
In large brass letters, is the Inscription, "Onr
William," lu compliment to the faithful secretary
of the company, Mr. Wm. Brunges. The main
lamp, over the air chamber, is of German silver,
and ground In the glass on two sides ls the name
of the company, and on another side ls the name
"German," within a wreath, at the lower portion
ot which is a representation or a fireman's hat
over axes crossed, and onanotherslde a represen?
tation of a fireman in full uniform. The steamer
ts guaranteed to throw a stream or water two
hundred and fifty feet, but will doubtless throw
further. She will be tried to-day.
DEATH KC THE AIR-TERRIBLE REPORTS
TREMENDOUS EXCITEMENT.-Early Saturday
morning, the whole of the wharf section or our
city was thrown into a violent state or excite?
ment, by the reports that there were several
thousand ton3 or powder on the North Atlantic
wharf. No one seemed to kuow how mu sh pow?
der there was; so. c said one hundred and twenty
thousand tons, others seventy-five thousand,
others forty thousand, but all were agreed that
there were certainly not less thau twenty thou?
sand tons. Property owners were naturally In?
dignant that their property should bc exposed to
destruction. The reports flew about the city with
the rapidity that bricks, bodies,- Ac, wonld have
done, if the aforesaid powder had gone off; and
the excitement rapidly increased, as did the dis?
tance of a great many persons from the
vicinity of the powder after they heard
the reports-of the amount btored on thc
wharf. A visit to the so-called dangerous spot
showed that on Monday last the steamship Victor,
bound from New Orleans to New York with a
cargo of damaged ri rle cartridge ammunition,
had put in here lu distress with her rudder bro
j ken. Permission was asked and given to place
some of the ammunition on the North Atlantic
wharf, alonside of which she lies, to lighten the
vessel, and several thousand boxes were there
placed. As the ammunition was damaged by
water there was no danger ol'explosion, but some
one having mentioned that there was powder
there, the story was circulated and grew in size
until there was, accordiug to report, enough pow?
der to shatter the whole of this and the adjoining
States, if it could have exploded. The vessel is
now reloading and will probably leave this after?
noon-when fae powder will certainly go on*.
However, the placing af any powder on the
wharves is prohibited br an ordinance, which
provides that all powder must be unloaded in the
stream and carried to the powder magazine up
It is but justice to state that a great mauy fear?
ed an explosion on the wharf among the vessels,
only because lt might euable some one to get off
another "Casablanca" poem for juvenile declama?
tions, such as
The boy steod on the burning deck.
Eating peanuts by the peck;
His rather called him. but he would not go,
Because he loved the peanuts so.
As there seems te be no use for another "Casa?
blanca''-the juvenile orators holding on to the old
one with a deathless grasp-we trost that there
will be no explosion.

FEARFUL RAILROAD ACCIDENT.-The Savan
nah Republican learns from dispatches received
in that city from Jessup, a station on thc Macon
and Brunswick Railroad, on Friday night, that a
serious accident occurred on that day to the ex?
cursion train on the Macon and Brunswick Rail?
road, by which four or tl ve persons were killed
outright, and a number more or less seriously in?
jured. It appears that an excursion party was
made up at Qultman, Valdo3ta and other places
on the line of road, for a visit to Brunswick. Thc
train ljeft Qultman Friday morning and proceed?
ed on its way without accident until it reached a
point sixteen miles from Brunswick, when, in
crossing a trestle, the cribbing gave way and pre?
cipitated the cars containing thc excursionists a
considerable distance to the swamp below. A tel?
egram states that four or live persons were killed
outright, and several others seriously wounded.
No names or further particulars are given. A
special train, with medical and other aid, was
dispatched from Savannah to the scene of disas?
ter late Friday night. It is understood that many
ladles were on board the excursion train.
THI: RICHINGS OPERA COM PANT.-The mem?
bers or this popular company arrived iu Charles?
ton yesterday, and will appear at thc Academy of
Mu-ic for the first time to night. Thc leading
singers are warmly praised by the press of the
whole South, and the power and skill ot thc
chorus and orchestra are lauded to the skies. In
the chorus (now In Charleston) there arc twenty
five trained singers, and the orchestra has about
half that number of skilful musicians. The
strength or the company in these particulars will
enable them to give Charleston the best operatic
performances we have had since the war.
To-night the company will perform Wallace's
opera "Maritaua," which, ia many respects, 13 at
the head ot English operatic compositions. The
plot or the opera ls that or the drama or "Don
Cosar de Bazan," aud turns upon the plots ot
King Charles, of Spain, against Maritana, a
young Gitana, of whom the gay Monardl is enam?
oured. Of course, virtue triumphs, and Maritana
and Doa Ctesar live happily forever afterward.
The music is bright and catching, and will, we
feel confident, be delivered In first-rate style.
A number o' new windows or ventlllatora have
been cut in the Academy, and will keep thc house
cool In the warmest weather.
XIXTH CENTURT.-The May number of this
excellent magazine ls ont earlier than usual,
showing that there has been new lire and energy
infused into tts management, which argues well
for the future. The number before ua is full of
exceedingly Interesting and entertaining read?
ing matter, many of the articles showing evi?
dences of marked ability in their preparation.
"Moma Elverley, or Outlines of Life," by Mrs.
Durant Covington, increases in Interest, and
"Hester's Warnlng.'a Story for Girls," is also
pleasing and well written. Ex-Governor B. F.
Perry furnishes this month one of his pleasingly
written "Reminiscences," the subject being "Ex
president Andrew Johnson." Probably no per?
son in the country ls better able to write a sketch
of President Johnson's Ufo than Governor Perry,
and he relates many incidents that have never
before been made public. Wm. Gilmore Simms
contributes another interesting article upon the
literary progress of South Carolina, In which he
disentombs from the past names of writers and
authors the very remembrance of whom has long
passed away. The article on "The Revolutionary
Character or the United States Government" con?
tains some of the strongest and most unanswer?
able charges that have yet been made against
Radical rule. As the articles emanate from
Washington, the writer, whoever he ls, ls fully
posted In what he writes about, and evidently
speaks bj the book. "Life la New York"' gives a
heartrending sketch of the [squalor and poverty
existing In that great metropolis, and delineates
sr ,nes the very exUtence of which are unknown
i > Southern readers. An illustration accompa?
nies this article. "Johnny Rob" gives this num?
ber a graphic story or the war. The usual mis?
cellany ls found In the "Editorial Workshop,"
"Passes en Passant" and "Olia Podrida."
The publishers announce that this number
finishes the first year of the magazlue, and that
their aim will be to make the publication next
year superior In every respect to what lt has been
thus far. Our people will do well to add their
quota toward Its support, as lt ls a home Institu?
tion, In whose success they may Justly feel a per?
sonal pride. All such enterprises lend to ad
vance the Interests of Charleston abroad, by
calling the attention or strangers to our section
of the country, and by creating a favorable Im?
pression or oar steady advancement in literary
as well as financial matters. Let the XIXth Cen?
tury and all kindred publications be well sus?
