, The Market.--On Saturday night our mar
*ket is always a piece of lively interest. To-night
it will be donbiy attractive, and worthy of a visit.
The gathering of poultry is indescribable.
Through Tickets to Macon, by way of the
Macon and Augusta Railroad, are now for sale in
this City. Tho night trains or the South Carolina
Railroad make close connection for the above
route In Augusta.
Books.?Christmas books of all sizes, shapes
and subject matter, i blazing rcsplendently In
our King street windows. Many of them are very
beautiful. Children's story books, arrays 1 in all
the colors of the rainbow, are this year unusually
Accident.?While crossing King street about
11 o'clock yesterday morning, two Sisters or Mer
cy were knocked down by a horse attached to a
dray, and one of them slightly injured. The dray
was driven by Henry Creggs, and the collision
was entirely accidental.
Thb Man Without a Bundle.?It was a
noticeable fact yesterday, and will probably be
more so to-day, that scarcely an Individual on
King street, male or female, was without a bun
dle. Porters and errand boys have nearly run
their legs on* in delivering brown paper parcels,
and the cry is, "still they come."
The Weather.?People needed no ther
mometer yesterday to notify them of the sudden
change of temperature. Bme noses and watery
eyes told the truth quite as plainly as the mercury.
Overcoats were a comfort, and cold fingers felt for
mercy m the lowest recesses o? well-lined pockets.
The Ice lay thickly In spots, and mushy places
grew hard with fro3t. It was decidedly the near;
jt;st approach to zero on the part of the thermome
ter that has been recorded this year.
The Adger Link.?These long tried, reli
able and superior vessels keep up their regular
trips, and make their accustomed good time. At
an early hour yesterday the steamship James Ad
ger reached her wharf in this city In the excellent
run of fifty-three hoars from New York, bringing
a good freight list, among which there are numer
ous articles for the city trade just suited to the
present holiday season. Her commander, Captain
T. J. Lockwood, Is adding steadily to his popular
ity among passengers and shippers by the skill
and care which he exercises in every department
of his responsible charge. The Manhattan, Capt.
M. S. Woodhull, or the same Hue, departs to-day
for New York.
Ixcendiart Hires.?About 1 o'clock, on
Friday morning last, the gin-house, saw mill and
shuck-house or Dr. R. T. Allison, on Clark's Fork,
in York.County. were destroyed by Are. The gin
house and saw mill were contiguous, and the
shuck-house about one-fourth of a mile distant.
All the buildings were discovered to be on lire
about the same time. With the gin-house, about
eight thousand ponnds of seed cotton was de
About the same time, in the same neighbor
hood, a meat house, belonging to Mr. Lawson
Brown, and a straw-pen, with the contents, on
the premises or Mr. Hugh Love, were also burned.
But little doubt exists that aU three of these fires
are the work of inceadlariea.
United States Commissioner.?Henry Har
dy was brought before Commisslener Porteons,
.yest?rday morning, charged with voting unlaw
Tfu ly, by reason of his not being a citizen of South
Carolina, at llardeeville during the late elections
The evidence showed that he had been runnier
on a Savannah River steamer for the past year,
but that his family live! in this Sute, which he
always considered his home. Having never
voted in Georgia, Henry was discharged.
Henry Campbell was brought up and examined
on a charge of voting when under age at Levy's
Cross Roads, Beaufort County, during the recent
election. He was proved to be under nineteen
years or a?e, and forthwith committed to jal>,
In default of ball, to await his trial at the Janu
ary term of the District Court.
Robert Greeu was examined on a charge of
voting twice at the same time aud place as the
above. The offence was clearly proved, and the
repeater, who seems to have acted through igno
rance, was cem ultted to jail to await his trial at
the next term or court.
Stephen Ralphs was examined on a charge or
Intimidating v. ters at the sum - time and place.
There was no ev idence to sustain the charge, and
Stephen was Lberatcd.
Christmas Advice.?If there ever was occa
sion lor us to "eat, drink and be merry," it Is on
the advent of Christmas, the happiest day of all
the three hundre I and sixty-five, ror every living
biped except geese, ducks, turkeys, chickens, and
kindred poultry. The rattestor these will receive
unmeasured honor, but probably experience a
very small amount of happiness in return, for
they are tobe sacrificed as roasted offerings upon
the altar of conviviality. Under the circum
stances, a few words of advice may prove profita
ble. First then, look after the children. See to it
that Santa Clnus comes down every chimney In
the city. If you have a poor neighbor with a
family of little ones, drop some Christmas sun
Bhlne there. Give the household angels a free
Tun at mince pic3 and sweetmeats. Fill the was
sail b .wi to the brim, and make it invite merri
ment to the sad lest domicile.
Second. Endeavor to feel as if your manifold
sins were forgiven, and. imagine everybody else
to be in the same blissful state of mind.
Third. Those who are too poor to afford roast
turkey and champa-mo, must put on their best
payslognotnlcal bib and tucker, and fancy them
selves joyou3 over fried flili and lager beer.
Fourth. Stove-pipes, generally speaking, being
of too small calibre to admit the personal corpo
roslty or St. Nick, ail owners or such should leave
their doors ajar, and hang the children's stock
ings on the bed-post.
Fifth. All debating, discussing, or any other
kind of cu3slng. especially on the subject of poll
tics, are perempt-Ti.y forbidden. Ytsl?tig friends
must be Btutled, saturated and sent home as glos
sy as a patent-leather hat.
Finally. Rejoice in "glad tldings;> generally,
and glory in the establishment of 'peace on earth
and good will to man," and be sure that you have
a Bprlnkle or love for woman.
P. S.?After participating m the enjoyments of
the day, strive to return home, (if you have been
supping out) and not count more stars on tho
way than actually hold a place in the Arma
Hotel Arrival.* ?December 583.

Grx-Hor/se BorUt on Wadmalaw Island.?
On Thursday morning the gin-bouse or Messrs. J.
& W. C. Oeraty, on Wadmalaw Island, took Are,
and before assistance could be had the building
was entirely destroyed. Seven or eight baies of
sea Island cotton and all the gins and machinery
which the building contained were likewise de
stroyed. The loss Is a heavy one, and not more
than half covered by the Insurance. No cause
can be assigned for the are, and it is believed to
have been purely accidental.
A Pleasant Incident.?After the-adjourn
ment or the meeting of the Washington Steam
Fire Company, on last Thnrsday evening, Presi
dent James M. Carson became the surprised re
clplent of a very handsome Christmas present, In
the shape or a beautiful silver waiter and a pair or
goblets, suitably inscribed, and presented to him
by the members of that gallant corps as ao evi
dence of the high esteem in which they hold their
very efficient president. The waiter and goblets
were purchased at the well-known Jewelry estab
lishment of Mr. A H. Hayfcen, at which place
they can be seen for a few days.
The Skating Rink.?The lovers of this de
lightful amusement are enjoying the propitious
weather prevailing at present, and while out
of doors the wind blows keen and faces get
pinched with, cold, the rink Is kaleldeiscoplc with
its revolving pictures of rosy cheeks and graceful
forms. To-day the assemblage promises to be
larger than usual, and all who like No. s's and can
skate In nothing else, had better go early and se
cure their choice. The energetic proprietor, who
in the early part of the winter kept the rink open
at great expense, Is now fully alive to his Increas
ing patronage, and Is always present with several
skilled assistants to assist those-, who .require in
A Watch Recovered.?James Lesesne was
arrested yesterday by Special Oillccr Johnson,
charged with stealing a watch from Rachel John
son. He found the watch in breaking down au
old house In Elliott street, in whica Rachel had lost
It while an occupant. The watch had been sold
once already by him, but the purchaser, suspect
ing vlilany, returned It. Lcseene was now en
deavoring to pawn the watch, and, by a lucky ac
cident, went to Rachel.to raise money on It. She
claimed it as soan as she got it In possession, but
Lesesne took It away t>y force, and was subse
quently arrested. The case was referred to Trial
Justice Schroder, who released the prisoner on
bail until next Wednesday, when the trial will
Christmas Gifts. ? Choosing Christ re a9
presents is a pnzzllng and a vexations thing.
The presents must be made or the skies will rail,
but between bun-boas and blrd-cagoa there Is a
wide Held for liking and disliking, and it Is pecu
liarly pleasant, therefore, to be able to take refnga
In Russell's book-store, and there find an artistic
panacea for every ill to which the Christmas sonl
Is heir. Mr. Russell's selection of Christmas
books is unusually large. Prominent among the
gift books of the season arc "Fairy Tales," illus
trated by Gustave Dore; the "Flowers of the
Alps,'' with chromo Illustrations; the "Light or
the World," an Illustrated collection of religious
p- eras; and, above all, the delicious "Book of
Nonsense," which is Indescribably funny ?0 chil
dren of larger as well as smaller growth. There
are a thousand other books upon all subjects, In
all styles and at all prices, which makes Russell's,
as usual, a haven of rest for the anxious present
Clubs and Stars.?Tcrancc McCann, ar
rested for being drunk and disorderly In Market
street, was sentenced to pay a fine of $5, or go to
the Rouse of Correction for live days.
Patrick Carrot, supposed to be lnsaue, was re
ferred to the city registrar.
R. Grant, for being drunk and resisting the po
lice In a bar-room In Market street, on Thursday
ulght, was Reuten cod to pay a tine of $5, or ppend
ten days in the House of Correction.
Daniel Oox aud John Oleraau, arrested for dis
orderly conduct and fighting in Columbus street,
asd also for vagrancy, were seit to Jail for a
term of thirty days each under the vagrant law.
Toby Btown, who left Jail last Tuesday, having
Just finished serving out a term of thirty days,
was arrested by the police on Thursday, while in
the act of abstracting tho contents of the money
box in a baker's cart. He was brought before the
Mayor yesterday morning, aud during bis trial
expressed his indifference as to whether he
would be sent to jail or not. Not having suc
ceeded In bis attempted larceny he was sent to
the House of Correction for thirty days U9 a
Francis Jenkrns, who had been committed to
jail by Ttlal Justice Magrath, on a charge of
breach of trust and grand larceuy, was yesterday
brought before two other trial justices by a wi lt
of habeas corpus. In consideration of the ad
mitted felony of the prosecutor, Bryant, the bond
was fixed at $100, which Jenkins at once gave
and was liberated.
Christmas at the Academy.?It seemed
that there was only one sombre place In Charles
ton yester night. The streets were filled with joy
ous throngs, and, lu the words of the old ballad,
The wor d's retainers were bljthe and gay
Keeping the Christmas holiday.
Bat the iron gate3 or the Academy were obsti
nately closed. Only dust danced In the seats
wnere.ja year ago, sate the beauty and rasblon of
the State. The distant Alps In the "drop" looked
dismally bleak. Flats and Interiors mourned
their disuse, aud would not be comforted. Ghosts
or Warner and Eldrldgr, of abounding Oatcsand
the "violets ol the stage," of dismal Gallons, aud
the Alexander who Is conquering new worlds lu
Massachusetts, flitted across the stage aud played
a Curistmas paatomlme In which all managers
should be lavish, every treasury full, and all art
ists free from the green-eyed feeling which tempts
a Chanfrau to tweak the tragic nose of a Fechter.
This may be; bnt to the public the Academy ol
Music was, familiarly speaking, grand, gloomy
The proprietor of the Academy of Music, Mr,
Jno. Chadwick, Is one of tho few Northern men
who are accepted a3 thorough Southerners. Gen
erous, far sighted and public-spirited, he expend
ed a small fortune in building up the choices!
tempi which the drama finds between the Poto
mac and the Gulf. For all this, and more, Charles
ton holds hlra In grateful and affectionate remem
brauce. The Academy of Music during the sensor
of 18?0-T0 was all that Mr. Chadwick promised
And it must have caused him a profound chagrlr
that blunders and short-comings, with which ht
had nothing to do, should have wearied the pub

Ky-gouos must be by.gones ! What is wante?
now Is the rc-orculug or the Academy. A yea
ago the Academy prospered exceedingly. A con

go back to 1869t Mr. Chadwick and Mr. Jno. T
F'ord wore then, respectively, proprietor and lesse
or the Academy. Tney were Bucccs-fuL and th
public was satisfied. It is a necessity, buth sochi
and commercial, that the Academy be opened
and kept open, and we should like to see trie
again the combination which wa? so lacky las

bring It out.
TM?j v HAUL
Meeting of CouNciL.~In8te*d of the special
meeting of Conncll advertised to take place last
evening, a caucus meeting was held for the pri
vate discofjslon of the sections or the bill to regu
late ;inceses for 1871, which will come up at the
next regular meeting.

from Phfadclphla, Captain Hinckley, arrived yes
terday, and reportB having experienced very
severe weather tho entire voyage from the capes,
but sustained no damage to vessel or cargo. The
Evermnn will salt at 3 o'clock to-day, as shippers
will notice by advertisement of agent.
Crumbs.?Mr. J. H. ?telnmeyer was elected
chairman of ti:e commissioners of the market, at
their meeting heid on Wednesday last.
Rev. Mr. Yates, the sailors' friend ami chaplain,
has been the recipient of a handsome pi osent
from the ship captains now In port, a present,
too, tendered In a manner as tasteful on the part
of the donors as It was deserved by Mr. Yates.
Buiint to Death.?Thursday afternoon, Han
nah Nelson, a young colored child about four
years of age, was left at home alone, In a house
on Gadsden's Green, by her mother, who went a
short distance to bring water. On the latter's re
turn she found the child lying on the floor lifeless,
her clothing all burnt from her body. AJaryof
Inquest was empanelled by the coroner, wi:o,
after Investigating the matter, returned a verdict
ascribing the cause of her death to an accident.
A Pleasant Occasion.?The residence of
Rev. Dr. Vcdder, pastor of the Huguenot Church,
was last evening the scene of one of those charm
ing entertainments which are cal cd forth by the
season. The children of the Sunday school, and
the young ladles' of tha Confederate Widows'
Home, were present, attended by parents, friends
and teachers, and each was made the happy re
cipient or a gift from the fairies of a Christmas
tree. Santa Clans likewise appeared in propria
persona, and to the Intense delight or the Uttio
ones?God bless 'cm?distributed from a gigantic
stocking, mysterious packages that made thefr
young eyes sparkle.
A Christmas Trkk.? The Bruderllcherbuud
Hail, on King street, was last night filled with a
large and select audience composed of thepareuts
and ?rlends or the pupils of Mr. C. H. Bcrgmann's
I German and English school, who assembled to
participate In the annual Christmas exercises of
?ie Institution. These consisted of dialogues in
English and Ocrman, spoken with excellent taste
and Interspersed with the best of German music.
Among the pieces sung were a Christmas song,
"The Watch on the Rhine,'1 the German national
hymn and others. Tills portion of the entertain
ment was closed with the recitation of a Christ
mas ode, after which Miss Ellec Jungbluth, one of
the pupils, presented In behalf of the school a
oes iltful Bible to Mr. Bergmann, their teacher.
The Christmas tree was then lighted up, and In
true German style all present participated in tho
festivities Incident to the occasion.
Christmas Eve I?Tf a man should attempt
to trace back all the customs Incident to this liai,
lowed period of the year, he would probably come
to anchor somewhere among the Druids or our
thcr pagau ancestors. We have no desire to ln
trnde on those distinguished gentlemen, espe
cially as they have been written up and advertised
to the Christian people or ttic United States until
nothing new can be said of them. It is undoubt
edly true, however, that we arc Indebted to Hio
peculiar rites and observances of these ancient
ladivldaals?half heathenish, half Christian?for
many of the pleasures which have been refined
tat? enjoyable shape. The mistletoe among the
Brulds, for Instance, was regarded with the ut
most venen ilon. While the burning of the yule
log. still an English cnslbm at Christmas, Is trans
mit:ed to us from our Scandinavian sirc?. This
small Illumination Is accompanied with all sorts
or jollity, master and servant mectlug on terras
ot equality for the time being, and the company
refreshing themselves with hot compounds of
elder, egg or spiced ale.
The ChrlstmaB tree Is a German institution, an
cient and honorable, and Is supposed to be a rem
uant of the fanciful pageants of the middle a;ci.
It Is only within twenty years that the Christ
mas tree was Introduced Into England; but It tins
become thoroughly blended and Identified with
the poetical associations of the day.
Hanging up the stocking Is likewise an ancient
German cuntoui, but In old times naughty chil
dren received birch rods instead of sweetmeats.
Nowadays it Is supposed that old Kris Kringle
makes allowance for Infantile Iniquity, and he
must be a very wicked boy indeed who does not
