the laborers, whose uiteranoe was so slow thc.
for rear of bursting, he was obliged to reUeve his
choleric temper with a brickbat hurled at the
offender. The missile strnck oue of another party,
who, without walting for explanations, returned
the compliment, and in a few moments both
ff* rt les were hotly engaged. The irruption of j
two officers put an end to the fight, and throe of
the wounded and the runner were captured. They
were all bruised and bloody, and one in particu?
lar was lying senseless on the field of battle. At
the Guardhouse, where they were taken, they
gave their surname&'as Peter Matthews, John
Crawford, Charles Woods and Wm. Kean, (the
neuer,) and were du y incarcerated. They will
Interview the Mayor this morning.

THE UER31 AX SOCIETY OF SOUTH
The annual meeting of this society was held
last evening, at the hall of the Bruderlichcbuud,
when the following annual report was read:
PRESIDENT'S REPORT. _^
Gentlemen-Whilst our society as yet has been
circumscribed in ber operations, it may be seen
from tne special reports that we have nor been
without good, and that we have had the oppor?
tunity of becoming for many of our poorer coun?
trymen a real blessing. The German societies or
the larger American c.ties have a more extensive
field and far superior resources. Our New York
sister spends her charities upon thousands, and
our oldest prototype in Philadelphia not only pos?
sesses a fund for the. .tance of poor immi?
grants, but she als? provides for the education of
their youth, and affords not only her own mem?
bers, but all indigent German meehanlcs and la?
borers the facility of improving their mind and
relining their taste by means oran extensive and
valuable library aud periodical technical and his?
torical lectures, towards which objects her nume?
rous prominent and highly educated members
render a willing assistance. In Charleston we
have only recently begun the noble work, and it
has been impossible to accomplish much in this
brier period. But what we have done is praise?
worthy, and with the blessings ot Providence we
will, in a few years, be enabled to more creditably
follow the example or our German sister societies
or other parts or the world.
If the German character, deservedly, ls praised
PO highly, and the German name enjoys In every
sphere. In the estimation of the better and
worthier classes of mankind, such a grateful
posit on, it may not be denied that the German
system of association, which prevails all over the
globe, ls entitled to a prominent portion of the
merit. But of all associations, surely none are
more truly humanitarian, more venerable or pub?
lic-spirited, than ilio-e that are pre-eminently dis?
tinguished as "the German Societies," which, all
over the world, without the least selfishness or
speculative intentions, as their main and only
object, care for the poor German brother, that
wunout means may be found wandering in the
strangerland In search of employment and shelter,
needing advice and help, or who may be by sick?
ness prevented from earning his livelihood by his
lt is a noble feature la our excellent people and
a source of consolation and pride that their fra?
ternal hand should be round to greet the poverty
stricken countryman in every clime. In old Asia
as In burning Africa; in Australia as In the re?
gions of the Pacific; in all America as in all Bo
rope, the distressed German will dud a brother's
grasp. It ls said that England's reveille resounds
at every hour of the revolution of the earth.
Germany's faithful spirit performs the same revo?
lution, not with the destroying sword, but as the
messenger of love, soothing Gie stricken heart as
the dew of the morning hour refreshes a thirsting
vegetation. Is lt not apparent to every rat lonni
understanding how noble must be the character
or a people whose children in all portions or our
?phere have founded institution* in which novcrty
may Hud help, Inexperience advice, distress con?
solation and relief, and the unemployed enrour
?remet? t and intelligence ? The sou of Gem?anla
ls not the bearer or trivial ceremonies and flip?
pant modes, but or a better civilization, based
upon truthful humanity. Thus wc may be grate?
ful to God who has moved the spirit of our coun?
trymen everywhere. Also in South Carolina, and
we are grateful to our German brethren that ihey
have advanced the work of our German Society to
Its near fruition, which was for South Carolina a
necessity, and for our German people a matter of
honor. Thus we are grateful also to our Ameri?
can fellow-citizens who have Kindly and wittingly
assisted our benevolent Institutions. The good
Lord bless ail the German societies wherever their
homes may be located, and strengthen our heans
that we may never ratter In the good work or un?
defiled charity and German fraternity.
On the 1st or January, 1870. we numbered one
hundred and thirty-four members; we now have
two hundred and sixteen, and have therefore In?
creased la the course of the year eighty-two.
Our receipts during the year 1870 have
amounted to $609, and arrears unpaid
$30, in nil therefore $639. $639 CO

In the course ol the last twelve months ninety
fou i' persons have made application at our agency
or these forty-six have, through the assistance of
the agent, obtained employment; six of them
have been forwarded to M. Louis at a reduced
rate of fare; two were sic); and have been furnish?
ed pecuniary aid aud sent to the hospital, where
one of them died and the other recovered;
eighteen have been assisted by pecuniary dona?
tions; two have been forwarded to New York for
half rates, and the others have been furnished in
structionsand forwarded into the Interior ol' our
Of those for whom we obtained employment In
the city, nine had returned from Newberry, for
which place they had been engaged in New" Yoi k
by the agent of the so-called "Immigration So?
ciety." Whilst we may not in every instance
have faith in the complaints of such wanderers,
our . ociety Will never refrain from protecting our
coun rymen, where such [protection becomes ne?
cessary. In our German settlement of Walhalla a
number of German workingmen fran Newberry
had also arrived la a state or utter destitution,
without means and sick. They were kindly cared
for, thanks to the good people' of our mouutaius,
aud especially or Mr. liiemann, and rurulshed
medical aid, nursing, and ou their recovery, em?
lt may not be denied that the German working?
men should be camions in the selection of meir
engagements, and in the -tondrions of iheir con
tract*. Our sister societies, especially thc one in
New York, where at present so immy labor agents
of the South congregate, should cause SUCH pre?
cautions to be adopted, that no engagements be
permitted when the respective agents do not pro?
duce reconnu eu dat lons from their nearest Ger?
man society. And these should be very particu?
lar in giving such recommendations only altera
ca re fu i Inquiry. Emigrant societies are, lu many
respects, beneficial and desirable, incitations for
employers and employee*. But their object is
their own' advantage, and the end ;avor to pro?
mote only their own lmmedUte profit. They mis?
take their eventual good in their ettore to reduce
the earnings or their workingmen. Good and
prompt wages, and good and wholesome board,
with gentle treatment, secures good, honest and
remunerating Berrica, and a g?nerons influx of de?
sirable labor, or the want or which the Soutn is
now painfully aware. The German societies
should supervise these matters strictly, not only
as a protection and in tue into -;s: of the German
laboring class, but In the real interest or our
whole South, which, arter all, can only reoover
her 'ormer prosperity by means or a speedy and
enlaced Immigration. Oar agent has exhibited
a praiseworthy effort in hls.offlcial dntles, and
from time to time gathers such experience as will
enable him to be more useful every year, and an
honor to oar society. Ile ls held to keep exact
books, one being a register to record the applica?
tions or the Immigrants, their wants and requesrs
for assistance or employment, the day of th? lr ar?
rival, their name, place or birth, last ila-, e of resi?

the other a record. In which the names, resi?

Our treasurer has given us a bond of $2000,
with two pood sureties, and an agent a bond of
$600, with two good sureties, for the ralthful per?
formance of taeir respective duUes, lu conse?
quence of which oar financial status ls sattsracro
rlly secured. At a meeting or the board or di?
rectors several months ago, the treasurer, Cap
tala Werner, called the attention of the board to
the importance of organizing a night school for
German youths, mechanics, Ac. The board
agreed upon the benefits of such an institution,
but felt compelled to postpone the further con?
sideration or the subject for the present want of

ed at a cost or $60,ooo, their library embraces
thirteen thousand volumes, and their nlght

ROBBING A TRUNE.-Joseph Brown (colored)
was tried before Trial Justice Magrath, yesterday
afternoon, on a charge of stealing clothing from
Stephen Miked. It appears that some time ago,
Stephen had come to town from Edisto Island,
where both he and Joe reside, and had left his
trunk ror safekeeping with Mr. Muller, in his
s ture at the corner of King and Broad streets.
As he made his purchases he would put them in
this trunk, which circumstance Joe took notice of.
On Saturday evening, when thc store was well
filled with customers, Joe entered and seated him?
self atlecilonately by tho trunk, having a capa?
cious crocus cottee bag with him. in a few min?
utes the greater part or the contents or the trunk,
which was not locked, but merely secured by a
strap buckled around lt, were transferred to the
coffee ba? aud Joe departed. Stephen visited his
trunk next day and Immediately raised the cry of
robbery. Joe was arrested, and the clothing,
valued at $19, was recovered, by means or a
search warrant, rrom his wire who lives up King
street, opposite Citadel Green. The case was
clearly made out, and Joe was sent to jail fora
term of thirty days.
MEETING OE THE A G BIO UL TUE A L
SOCIETY OE SOUTH CAROLINA.
A meeting of the Agricultural Society of
South Carolina waa held yesterday afternoon, at
the Board of Trade rooms, the president of the so?
ciety, Eon. Charles Macbeth, being in the chair.
After the reading of the minutes of the last meet
I lng, Professor McCrady read an Interesting lee]
ture on Pisciculture, containing mnch valuable
information on the subject in general, and In
especial as to those fish of most importance to
this section of the count ry. He gave an account
of the large Italian fish farms at the mouth of thc
Po, and showed how similar farms might be suc?
cessfully and profit ably cultivated on the salt
marshes of our own coast, the mullets, silver?
fish and eels, which are the fish cultivated In
Italy, being all available here.
At the close of the reading or the essay the
thanks or the society were returned to Professor
McCrady, and tue secretary was instructed to
pat the essay on file for publication with the
other essays that were to be read.
Dr. Rose then read aa able essay on Market
Gardening on Charleston Neck, and hsw to make
lt profitable. He thought that with care and
skill it was as sure to be profitable as any other
employment in which one could engage, and
that the profits were remunerailve. Although
there were many failures, he thought they were
owing to attempts to cultivate too much tand
with too little capital, and oftener with too little
knowledge, or manures, he considered city
stable manure, of which sawdust and rice chaff
are the base, a3 worse than worthless, while prop?
erly comported stable manure was not
only valuable, but essential. Peruvian guano,
he said, was the best commercial manure, and of
the manures manufactured here he had succeed?
ed best with the Pacific Cuano. made at Ritters
ville. Potato culture was thc most Important
branch; of market gardening on thc Neck, as
much ns 28,000 barrels having been shipped from
Charleston in 1869, and 14,000 barrels In 1870.
Thc Red Chill he thought the most profitable
variety, and the potato crop generally a sure
source of large proQt If made early and shipped
In good coudl'lon. Rain did not Injure them,
but the sun did Our climate ls not favorable to
potato culture, but by shielding the crop from Its
Ul effects, we are sure of a profitable market at
the Non h before their potatoes are ready. The
profit or market gardculng ls not In a large
amount ol Inferior stuff, but In the best products
eat liest In the market.
The thanks or the society were returned to Dr.
Rose, and his essay ordered to be flied.
Thc secretary announced to the society that he
had received a letter from Mr. J. Jenkins Mikel!,
saying that when he promised an essay on Labor
lt was his understanding that lt was to be deliv?
ered la May, and his engagements at present were
such as to prevent his preparing one now.
Mr. J. Stoney Porcher being called on for his
essay on Improved Agricultural Implements, ex?
cused himself as not knowing that he was to pre?
pare one nntil he saw it announced In the papers,
but nevertheless read a very lnierestlng and in?
structive paper, giving his own experience with
several Improved Implements. Mr. Porcher also
received the thanks of the society, and his essay
was ordered to be filed.
Mr. Winiam M. Lawton stated, as a matter of
informa; lou and general Interest, that lt was now
known that the sea island crop was the shortest
ever known la South Carolina, Georgia and
Florida, but that bc knew of a farm on James
Island, opposite the city, on land which bad been
cultivated for one hundred years, where a field or
forty-eight acres had this year averaged one hun?
dred and ninety pounds or lint cotton to the acre,
and where thc sales of the cotton from one acre
had actually amounted to $198. A compost ma?
nure, of which much mud was the lase, had been
The society then adjourned to meet at the same
place this afternoon at 4 o'clock.
