HUNTING. - Several ambitious gentlemen
tried the woods and marshes for a day's sport
during Friday and Saturday. The universal ver
dlc^however, appears to be that the thermome?
ter wasin sympathy with the game, and that
colder fun of the kind has rarely been enjoyed in
ARRIVAL OF TOE. STEAMSHIP VIRGINIA.-This
valuable iron steamship left Philadelphia on Sa?
turday last, and arrived here at an early hour on
Tuesday morning, with a fair freight, and will
leave hereon next Saturday morning, connecting
with Boston steamer at Philadelphia. In the ab?
sence of a direct linc, this offers inducements to
shippers to the Eastern cities.
LIGHTNING SPEED.-A subscriber at Midway
beg3 us to call the attention of the Postofflce de?
partment to the fact that the malls are carried by
Midway on the express tram at "a lightning
speed," so that, two or three times a week, the

agent on the train. This is a serious annoyance
to the neighborhood:

ADVERTISER'S HANDBOOK_We have re?
ceived from S. M. Pettenglll & Co., the well known
and trustworthy advertising agents of 37 Park
Row, New York, a copy of their "Advertiser's
Handbook," which will be found Invaluable to the
advertising public. The list of periodical publica
tioa^is very rmi, and ls, doubtless, generally ac?
curate, although there are some errors In the enu?
meration of the South Carolina press.
ETHERIAL MILDNESS COME.-The sunshine
yesterday compensated us lu part for tho Arctic
atmosphere of the three preceding days. The
weather resumed Its spring like influences, over?
coats and shawN could be laid aside with impu?
nity, and as Willis once wrote, "A mouthful of
the noon was delicious." The ladles were out on
King street by brigades, and whatever may have
been their previous complaint of King Frost,
woman-like, they "hugged the offender and for?
gave the offence"-sex to the last.
UNITED STATES COMMISSIONER.-Edward
Wright, Isaac Ptnckney and Frank Owens were 1
brought before Commissioner P?rteous, yester?
day morning, charged with neglect ot their duty '
as managers, during the late election, at Uenlss
Cross Roads precinct, In Beaufort County. The
evidence against Wright showed thar, up to ll
o'clock on thc day cf election, he did not require
even the formality of on oath of any person who
chose to vote, and he was forthwith committed,
in default of ball, to jail, for trial at theJan aary
term of the United States District Court. In the
case- of rinckney and *ens, the absence- of
material witnesses compelled a postponement of
the examination, and they were accordingly re
manded to jail until to-d&y, when their case will
receive further investigation.
CLUBS AND STARS.-The Mayor's Court pre?
sented quite a lively appearance yesterday morn?
ing, and thc docket was prodigiously long, which
8eldotBJ>efal!s this branch of our Judiciary. The
violatWm of tho Mayor's holiday proclamation
was a fruitful source or arrests, and the regular
cases of Intoxication were greatly Increased by
the jovial tendencies of the merry season. Thc
appr?ciation of this tendency was observable lu
the sentences ol the Mayor, and the votaries of
the jolly god in almost every case escaped their
usual sentence. The torpedo fines were largely
in the majority, and the offence in all cases being
glaring, and the offenders caught flagrance delic?
ti*, out ol the- whole band, twenty-four In num?
ber, only two c.-caped the proclaimed penalty of
their amusement. Two escaped with a Une of $2
each. An aggravated case was visited with a
floe of $10, and the remainder had to choose be?
tween paying $5 for their amusement or going
to the Heusc of Correction .'or Ave or ten days.
The cases of "drunk and disorderly" were In
general pardoned, and a line imposed only in the
cases where resistance to the police was added to
Several cases of firing pistols, fighting and as?
sault received appropriate fines. Twenty-two
cows, found going at large,'were discharged on a
deposit of as many dollars by the owners, and two
others, older ofLiUders, were made to deposit $2
each before release. Lastly, a horse and cart,
found at large, on Monday evening, In Spring
street, were returned to the owner.
Robert Johnson, arrested for vagrancy and
being caught under suspicious circumstances,
was sent to the House of Correction for twenty
days aa a vagrant.
Henry Freeman, one of the hands on the
Steamer Emilie, was arrested Monday night for
broaching the cargo. He stands committed for
trial Wore Trial Justice Sctrroder tQ-day.

ful way, aud the company adjourned to the neigh?

BARES IN TUE WOOD.-During tho cold snap
on Thursday n;ght-and our reidera will remem?
ber it was ronidthlng to sneeze at-two little fel?
lows walk?! from a plantation to one or the land?
ings of the steamer Emilie on the Santee. Re?
turning, they were lost in thc dark, and night
found them homeless. Fortunately each was pro?
vided with a blanker, and, finding a soft spot on
mother earth, they cuddled there industriously
until morning. The 'igolden exhalations of the
dawn" found them alive, but demoralized, and
stiff as a pair of fence rails.
DEATH OF REV. PHILIP GADSDEN.-The com?
munity wm hear with pain that this aged divine,
so long known in thc State in connection with the
holy labors of the Episcopal church, has at last
been gathered to his fathers. ? native of Charles?
ton, born lo 1798, and educated partly at Yale Col?
lege, he was ordained by Bishop Bowen In this
city about fifty years ago. At first he devoted
himselfto the duties of missionary life, but subse?
quently became the rector or St. Paul's Parish and

years ago, when he resigned on account or 111

clergy of the city. The remains will be taken :o
Summerville to-day, to be interred near the Epis?
copal Church of that village, of which he was the
DEATH OK JAMES W. GRAY, Esc?.-Our com?
munity will be painel to learn that this veucru
ble and useful citizen or Charleston passed away
rrom earthly scenes yesterday morning. Few men
have lived seventy-six years, the best part of a '
century, and crowded into it more of the true 1
capital of mauhood than did Mr. Gray. Born In 1
this city la 1704, he graduated in the South Caro?
lina College when lt was under the administration
ol the eminent President Maxcy. Immediately '
thereafter, he commenced the study or the Uw in
Abbeville with his cousm. Benjamin Yancey, Sr., '
completing the same in Charleston, In the office ol
Judge Huger, with whom Mr. Yancey had lormcd
a professional connection. Among the college
classmates of Mr. Gray were Governor McDuflle '
and Hon. Wm. C. Preston, and Mr. Gray took 1
eltherthe second or third honor. After graduating
at the bar, he entered Into copartnership with '
Colonel Cross, but lu November, 1S29, he was elect- 1
ed master in equity, which office he retained until '
lt was abolished lu 1869. Thus for forty years,
faithfully, and in a distinguished manner, he
served the Interests of the public, and from all
classes won the tribute which ls ever paid to hon- 1
est worth and eminent ability. The silver cord }
was loosened only after he passed the alloted thtce '
score and ten cf man's life, but In all that lifo ho '
was engaged In writing In characters or light
Chose tessons to whioh. wu <Jlro.ot joutU, ttuJ Uiuuo
virtues which invite emulation. The runcral will 1
take place at half-post 1 o'clock, this afternoon, at 1
the Unitarian Church. 1
DEATH OF CAPTAIN WILLIAM CORRIE.-This '
well-known citizen of Charleston died at thc Milis
House o:i Monday morning, about hair-past 7 1
o'clock. For several weeks be had ucea suffer?
ing from an acute disease which threatened a ra?
tal termination at any moment, and the result 1
was not therefore attended with surprise on the 1
part of either his physician or his friends.
Few men lu this generation, have lived a more '
eventful career than Captain Corrie, and proba- ?
bly no civilian who has not occupied public posl- 1
Mon was more widely known. His acquaint- :
unces might be counted from Main? to California, :
and they embraced many or the most distln- I
gulshed men of the country. Born in Charleston I
about the year 1817, he received a good English
school education, and then entered upon commer?
cial pursuits,.mauy of his contemporaries well <
remembering thc time when he was a first-class j
salesman tn a dry goods store on Klug street with ;
his relative, Mr. George H. Milnor. It ls said that
at that time he was oue of the few who command- ?
ed the highest salaries paid for this kind of sev- I
vice. La:er in ure, say about the year 1840, events ;
called him to the Ci'y of Washington, where for '
nearly fifteen years he wielded an lufluence
amoug members of Congress so potent, that he ?
was regarded asonc of the cht Ls of the "lower I
house." In this capacity, as a lobby member, l:c
succeeded in securing the passage of several im?
portant bills, involving the appropriai ion of large 1
sums of money, sud himself was liberally re- (
warded by those In whose behalf he acted. In '
oue instance he received as a fee tUty thousand 1
dollars, aud altogether met with a pecuniary and 1
political success quite unprecedented Ju those 1
In every way, however, Captain Corrie was 1
peculiarly fitted to command and iufluencc men '
in the various stations of lire-especially men of
the world, or handsome presence and graceful '
carriage, with manly qualities written In every
lineament of his race; gifted as a conversational- 1
Ut and reminiscent; posses-lag a fund of anec- 1
dote, an extraordinary knowledge of huniau 1
nature, and a keen appreciation of the arts;
charming as a host at lils own diuner table,
whereon the luxury was almost boundless, he
attracted around bim politicians, officers of the
army and navy, and the most distinguished civil?
ians of thc United States.
Durlug this period he was largely Interested in
and idenlifled with the yachtsmen of New York
and the South, was frequently called upon to om.
date as judge or referee In various matches, and
thus became familiar with the sailing qualities of.
the fastest pleasure boats on the coast. Bleat wii h
abnndaut means, he purchased the best of these
ihe now historic yacht Wanderer-and on one of
his first cruises carried witu him several members
of the Cabinet and other Washington celebrities.
Political excitement on thc subject of slavery run?
ning high at the time-abuut the year 1850-Capt.
Corrie conceived thalde? of going ?o the coa t of
Africa, taking in a cargo of slaves, and bringing
them to the South. How he fitted up his beauti?
ful craft, eluded the officials, yet ran boldly Into
various ports, carrying the pennant or the New
York Yacht Club aud wearing Its unirorm ;
how he aroused suspicious ol a filibustering
raid on South America, and had revenue cut?
ters flying 'all about him, yet quietly slip?
ped away, fulfilled his purpose and landed a
cargo or negroes on an island In Georgia, with?
out being first or last discovered, are .matters
or ramiliar history. We only rercr to them to
Ulustrate the bold, adventurous and Impulsive
character of the man. Whatever he did, was
done on a comprehensive scale. There was not u
mean trait In his composition. In wealth he was
prodigal; In poverty he was generous to his own
hurt. He was true as steel, and in society exhib?
ited the qualities which attracted and retained
friends. His State hod no truer or more unsel?
fish son, and his loss will be keenly felt by au un?
usually large number of persons.
The funeral took place yesterday morning, the
services being performed by Rev. Mr. Elliott.

lern an Lutheran Sunday-school was celebrated

tali was opened at 7 o'clock precisely, and soon
the Ut.ls ones, with eager faces and anticipating
.he delightful evening in store for them, came
:rowdIug in. No wonder, for notwithstanding
their large number, every one of the scholars re?
served a present or prize of some kind.
In a short time the fine ball was densely crowd
id. and sona there was not standing-room, so '
that a great mauy visitors were unable to gala j
idml sion. ]
Thc entertainment was opened by the scholars
sloging a Christmas ode, accompanied on thc piauo
ny Professor Otto Muller, who kindly volunteered
his services, and added not a little to the effect er
thc performance. Al the conclusion or thc ode a
prayer was offered up by the Rev. L. Muller, thc
