DOWN WITH THE.JD?ST_The city contracto
are very wasteful In their manipulation of t
ashes brought out from houses and the du
swept up from the streets. In Broad street, yt
terday, of every shovelful of dirt pitched at tl
cart, at least one-half found its way across tl
road, converting brokers' offices into smaU Saht
ras, and spoiling good clothes Without stint. B
fore s i arise, this poor shovel practice might t
unobjectionable, but such an amusement ac bal
past 10 o'clock in the morning, with a stiff brec2
blowing, is very i>oor fun for suffering buslnes
men. Merchants and brokers are willing enong
to throw dust in the eyes cf each other in a Plcl
wlcklan sense, but they do not care to have th
operation performt d, in real earnest, at thee:
pense or the municipal authorities.
A GANG OF THIEVES.-Henry Taylor wa

teous, yesterday morning, charged with neglec
of duty as manager at,thc Cypress Creek poll

proved vhat Timothy had allowed everybody u
vote without administering or offering to admin
ister an oath, and he was forthwith turned ovei
to the grand j n ry of the District Court now sitting

neglect of duty, but, in addition, for being toe
zealous a manager in benair of his own partx, at
the Fording Island poll, St. Luke's Parish, Beau
fort County, during the late election. It was
* shown that he had gone to the polls armed and
equipped either to manage the election his way,
or to have a free light, with a vicious looking re?
volver protruding from his breast, also that he
had insisted on vo ting everybody at the polls.
The case was referred at onceto the grand jury ol
the District Court. ^

tols, and looking like mischief. The constable
iSUowed Saturday morning, and, on the way, re
ruforced himself with Ahree other constables.
They arrived at D.'s store In the evening, and the
three assistants having entered, discovered D.
retailing groceries In a very graceful manner.
A signal brought-in the constable outside, and
D. waa captured before he got over his surprise.
The prisoner- and.-his guards went to Monet's
.Corner that evening, and spent the night around
a big ire under the tank house. The constable

EAST BAT IMPROVEMENTS.-Promlnentamong
therecent improvements on this thoroughfare ts
thc rebuilding of the popular resort once known as
Chu pel n's Restaurant,- but latterly owned and
managed by the proprietor, Mr. Charles Lirschgl.
The low unsightly buildings have been replaced
by a fine ornamental structure, three stories In
height, having a bold front on the Fay. The de?
sign reflects credit on Mr. Devereux, the archi?
tect, and the two stores occupied by Mr. Litschgl
and Mr. B. K. -.Neufville can compete IQ good
loots with any on the street. Mr. Litschgl ls a
successor of Mr. Chupeln, who was known to

rateur. Bia successor lias sustained his reputa?
tion, and now offen to the public superior at?
tractions In anew bulling and extra accommoda?
tions. The second story contains the dinner and

five to thirty persons, while the lower floor is the
eating and refreshment saloon. An entrance
through the rear of the building leads to the bar,
which opens on Broad street, and. ls In the office
recemly occupied by-Mr. Z. B. Oakes. Mr. Litschgl
has spared no expense to please the public, and

COTTON TO FLEETWOOD.- Mr. Thos. Whit?
worth, member of Parliament for Drogheda, Ire?
land, .a partner in the highly respectable and
well known cotton Arm of Benjamin Whitworth
i Bros., of Manchester, England, has left with us
some documents relative to the port of Fleet?
wood, situated some forty miles north of Liver?
pool. Ic appears from the figures given by Whit
worth A Bros., that upon shipments to Fleetwood,
ns compared with Liverpool, there ia a saving In
expense of discharging ships and handling the
cargo or nearly fifty per cent. Before the late
war Whitworth Bros. influenced through Fleet?
wood no less than fifty three cotton ships carry?
ing over 90,000 bales. Eighteen of these ships
were owned by their firm. Charleston has sent
pnly one cargo, that of thc Cleopatra, In 1857,
nut Savannah, In isei, sent twelve cotton ships to
Fleetwood. Whitworth Bros. are now endeavor?
ing to direct attention again to Fleetwood and
ts advantages, and have engaged the Al British
Murk Adriatic, with a full cargo, for that port,
f hey are open to receive some two hundred bales
m freight, as per advertisement la another col?
umn, and a good chance presents itself to the peo?
ple of Charleston of testing practically the
soundness*- and correctness of Messrs. Whit
north's figures, which, by the way, they are per?
fectly willing to guarantee and strictly adhere to.
IMPROVEMENTS AT THE FOOT OP BROAD
STREET.-Cnder the special appropriation of
?3O0O, made last yearby the City Council, the
ivork of making a wall or pleasure ground out of
he old popd, enclosed by Bred, Rutledge, Beau
'jin and Lynch streets, is rapidly progressing.
This pond was bequeathed to the city on the ex?
press condition that itshould be put to this use,
ind some action on the part of the City Council
ivas uecessary to conform to the condition of the
levis?, and prevent tts going over to some one
Mse in the alternative. The present small appro?
priation ls being Judiciously expended, under the
lirection and supervision of Alderman Potter,
ivlio ls chairman of the committee, aud the re?
sults are plainly perceptible In the changed ap?
pearance of things on the pond. A large number
pf laborers are employed, who, by means of a
inrrow pathway or boards laid upon the yielding
ind treacherous mud, make their way with wheel
panow and spade to the centre of the pond.. The
mud ls then dug and transported in the wheel?
barrows to thc edge, where lt ls deposited. This
ivork has been in progress for some five or six
weeks, and a solid embankment, fully thirty feet
wide, has been thrown up on a level
wi;h thc sidewalk along a part of Broad and Rut
erige streets. At first, lt was intended to make
his embankment one hundred feet wide along
:ach of the enclosing streets, having a beautiful
iheet of water In the centre of the square; but as
he present appropriation is much too small to ac
?ompiish this, and the city ts sot over-rich, the
ilzcof the embankment has been decreased and
hat of the shee. or water proportionality Increas
sd. The mud, when hardened by exposure to thc
mn, will make a very firm foundation, on which
?arth will be thrown to Insure the production of
rets, grass and shrubbery. The lake in the een?
ie Is also to bc-but that is all In thc future. Thc
n tem ion is to make* lt a pleasant promenade for
.he citizens and a charming play-ground for the
poiing people or the city. Cndcr ruture approprl
ltiona wo may look to see this accomplished, and
me present generation which toddles about with
ioll-bablcs and short frocks may live to take a
overs' promenade by moonlight over this promis?
ing expanse of mud.

JAIL-BIRDS FLOWN.-Late on Friday night,
four of the prisoners conflned ,in the House of
Correction-Joe . Williams, John Washington,
Tony Brown and Robert Jones, alias Sugarfoot
made their escape, and have not since been heard
of. The matter was Investigated next morning
by Captain Hendricks, when it was found that
the locks of the door had not been broken, and
could not have been picked. It ls supposed to
have been leit open either through the connivance
or carelessness of one of the other prisoners, who
has lately been acting as the assistant of the
keeper. After getting through the door, the.fugi
tivea went across the hospital yard, and climbed
the fence on Mazyck street. A strict search was
Instituted as soon an their decamping became
known, but the fugitives effected so rapid
change of base that it has, up to this time, proved
fruit leas. The quartette are old In viliany, and,
as the profession express lt, "mighty sharp on
the lift." The stealing and robbing, instances of
which were of lato becoming uuusual, will prob?
ably experience a revival under the effects of this
reinforcement to the gang of thieves. Strong
locks and careful servants had better be pit in
requisition at once.
TRIBUTE OE RESPECT.
At a regular monthly meeting of the Eagle
Steam Fire Engine Company, convened on Friday
evening last, the accompanying preamble and
resolutions were unanimously adopted:
Since our last regular meeting death has again
visited our ranks, and we are now called upon to
bow in submission to tbe Just decree of an all-wise
Providence, who, in the dlspensaton of His mercy,
has seen fit to take from our midst our deceased
brother, Henry B. Craddick; and as a last token
of respect, to offer to his memory the accompany?
ing preamble and resolutions.
The deceased was au old, worthy and efficient
member, who, in years gone by, performed his
arduous duties as a perfect fireman, and though
of late years his vocation called him to another
sphere, yet he was ever eager to learn of the wel?
fare and prosperity of bis company, of which ha
was an honorary member.
His heart was true in its pulsation, his friend
Bhlp was sincere, and - his constant and devoted
