A BEWITCHING BCNCH OP BANANAS.-Messrs.
Bayer & Kressol,. the well-known Market street
fruit dealers, have left at THE NEWsoince, for ex?
hibition, a bunch of bananas, thc peculiarity or
which is that the fruit ou one sido ls of the yel?
low variety, and on the other side of the red

SEVERELY BURNED.-A lew evenings ago,
Bridget Dennis, who resdies at the east end of
tinsel street, fell asleep in front of the fire, and
only awoke in time to save herself from a palnrnl
death. Uer clothing had taken fire, and the
flames were spreading rapidly over her whole
person. She managed to extinguish the fire, but
not wlihont pain;ul and extensive burns In differ?
ent parts of her body. Her sufferings were very
severe, and were made worse by want of atten
tentlon and her extreme destitution. She was
discovered on Sunday, by the kind Sisters cf
Mercy, who reported the case to the City Hospital,
whither she has been conveyed, aud where she ls
now doiug well.

and In the evening there was a friendly trial of
their respect!-e machines In Broad street. The
colored members of thc ? ommunity turned out in
Immense numbirs, and tuc wide street was pack?
ed with a dense mass of variegated humanity,
which utterly precluded the passage of vehicles or
pedestrians. The performance of thc dltTerent en?
gines was very creditable, ami each stretin was
hailed with shouts loud enough to bring st. Mi?

THE DEATH OP MADAME ROCEI:.-We regret
to read ia thc Court r des Etacs Unis the an?
nouncement of thc death or Madame Roger, the
relict of the late Thomas J. Roger, who was so
long known as a member of the Urtu of PItray,
Vlei A Co., and afterwards as head or the house of
T.J.Roger A t'o., or this city. We believe that
Mr. Theodore Huchct, thc brother of tho deceased
lady, la the only living member of the last named
Madame Roger, with her widowed daughter,
Madame Mottet, had resided for several years in
Fiance, and just previous to the investment of
Paris, these ladles took refuge, the one in Rouen
and the other in F?catup. Tho excitement con?
sequent upon the entry of thc Germans Into
Ronen made Madame Roger violently 111, and led
to her death on the C h ult.
Madame Roger, while In Charleston, was presi?

word and deed, a thoroughly good and loveable
woman, she had a large circle of warm friends
who will deeply regret the sad tidings or hrr

One abjurer of cold water was taken np from a
recumbent position on the sidewalk, at thc corner
or East Bay and Market street. Upon being oou
fronted with the Mayor, next niornlug, he pleaded
"first offence" and wa3 discharged.
Another member of thc same fraternity, who
could not possibly understand how St. Philip

escorted by a friendly policeman to tho Guard?
house. In a short time he discovered he was in
the wrong house, and left $5 as a security for his
appearance. Strange to say he has not claimed

CONDITION OF THE CITY.
ANNUAL REPORT OF MAYOR PILLS?
Gentlemen of the Council-There Is no
teacher more trustworthy to those who are
willing lo profit by its lessons than experience.
When we first entered upon our official du?
ties, most of us were unpracticed in the par?
ticular sphere to which we had been called.
But now, after haring gained a degree of
knowledge, nt least as to the actual condition
anti needs of Ute city, lt is lime seriously to
direct our attention to such measures as shall
be most likely to promote its greater advance?
ment. Before entering upon a new year, It
may be well to take a retrospect of the
j old, in order to avoid any breakers upon
! which we may have drifted to our injury, and
to open wider and deeper any channels that
? may have served us, though partially, yet well.
First in Importance to any city are Its
finances, because upon them depends the ad?
vancement of every identical interest. The
amount appropriated Tor all purposes of the
Eresent year was $769,000. This seems to have
sen sufficient, though in some cases, no
doubt, more could have been Judiciously ex?
pended. At any rate, the general necessities
seem to have been well answered. Ol the
amount raised it has required $320,000 to moet
th* interest upon the city debt, leaving $449,
000 to be applied to the varied purposes of the
city government. From this last sum $30,0Ci'i
were set apart for general Improvements, and
im ess it shall be deemed advisable lo enlarge
this particular expenditure, I am of the opin?
ion that the same amount lor 1870 will answer
the exigencies to be met In 1871, with the ex?
ception ol' that part applied to the city debt, of
which I shall speak under another head. To
raise less might impair the general good, while
to raise more would certainly impose a burden
upon the people which they are not well able
Under this head I take pleasure in alluding
to certain changes for Ihe better which are
evident in various parts of the city. Not the
least of these is that In King street, from
Broad to Calhoun. This, together with the
plank road from Vati?erhorst to Line, from
thence to the shell road, affords a very com?
fortable and agreeable drive ot over six miles,
through the entire length of the city, Into the
Then another pressing need has been sup?
plied by the construction of many miles of
sidewalk, particularly in the northern and
western portions of the city.
A large and substantial brick drain has been
constructed from the Market directly into the
basin above the old Fish Market. This not
only affords thorough drainage for the Mar- 1
ket, but it may be rendered available also lor
removing the mud from the basin, Alter the
channel into thc river shall have been tho?
roughly cleared, which could be accomplished
at no very great expense by the use of a
Thus the basin, a very costly, but hitherto
almost worthless structure, might be made to
answer many valuable ends.
A small appropriation was made to com?
mence Improvements around the pond bo
tween Beaufafn and Broad streets, and the
work has already progressed considerably upon
the Rutledge street side. I would recommend
that the work be continued till the contem?
plated design be executed, as it will not only
enhance the value ol property in that vicinity,
but also will afford a cool, healthy resort lor
the weary, pent-up inhabitants of the city.
The widening of King street has been con?
stantly advancing, and will, no doubt, ere
long be completed.
All the preliminaries of the long contem?
plated widening of East Bay street have at
length been arranged; and nothing is now
needed but a comparatively smull appropria?
tion for tlie purpose, and the work will be
done. Other minor changes have been effect?
ed, too numerous to mention, but yet all con?
tributing to the general convenience and com?
Tiiere are still loud calls for greater outlays;
but their answer must depend upon the ability
of the city to go outside of what muy bu
termed its actual necessities. Among these
may be mentioned the- widening of Friend
street, tiie extension ol Elayne through Guig
nard, the planking of some convenient
thoroughfare from King street to Ashley River,
raising the causeway in Rutledge street, near
Cal ho nu; additional drains through Mary and
Morris streets; through Pitt, lrom Montague to
Wentworth; from South street to tidal drain;
tho niling of various lots, which, in their
present condition, retain quantities of stagnant
water. All this, and much more, we would
gladly accomplish ll the means should be at
APPRAISEMENT OF PROPERTY.
Much pains and expense have been incurred
during the present year, to arrive at a fair,
equitable valuation ol'the property of tho city.
This object has been approximated, though "ir,
may not have been absolutely readied. There
are evidently exceptional cases, where thc
valuation has been placed above the average;
and there are also cases where thc reverse
ha* been true. These mistakes, (for I regard
them only aa such,) should be corrected.
There ls some complaint that the general
standard of property has been elevated" above
what it can properly bear. This may be true;
but lt'so. it could hardly effect owners lo their
disadvantage, provided an equal vnluatlou
could be established. A certain amount must
be raised by taxation; and it Is immaterial
who tiler the valuation is higher, and tho
per ceii^ lower, or whether the valuation ls
lov?er urn the per cent, higher, in raising the
required amount. It certainly wouid be bad
policy to place the estimate too low. The city
certainly needs all the credit to which it caii
Justly be entitled. Better Insist that we are a
garden, rattier than a desert, if we would at?
tract the stranger within our gates. No crier
would expect to realize more largely by de?
preciating his wares; while any undue in nation
of our financial consequence would neither be
honest or Judicious; still, to assume all the
credit due us would be both honorable and ad?
In the hospitals all the departments are un?
der lite general supervision of the city regis?
trar ana his assistants. The treatment, ol pa?
tients lu regular, thorough and humane, so far
as I believe and am able to Judge. The differ?
ent wards are kept in excellent order; every?
thing around indicating an air of quiet, and
comfort that should invite tho sufferer in,
rather ?han repel him, as is too often the case
with institutions of tills character.
H*ARD OF HEALTH.
This board, as newly constituted early in thc
present year, bas proved a vital, effective
body. It held its meetings regularly each
week during the sickly season. All matters
pertaining to the sanitary condition of the city
were thoroughly considered. Epidemic and
contagious diseases were watched and guard?
ed against wi h a zeal that seems to have been
abundantly rewarded by the total absence ol'
these scourges lrom the city during the entire
HOUSE OF CORRECTION.
This institution answers a certain purpose;
but it does far from affecting the object willoh
is indicated by the title it Bears, a "House of
Correction." It ls a very strong, secure cage,
into which we ure constantly thrusting the
unclean birds that prowl about the city, under
tho soubriquet of vagrants, petty thieves and
disturbers ot" the peuce. Once installed lhere,
they herd together, male and female, more
after the manner of brutes than ol human
beings, concociing new schemes of crime and
hin lo be executed all the more adroitly when
they shall again go forth among the lonocetit
and unwary. No doubt the keeper does
tlie bent he can under the circumstances; but
he should be luruished more facilities for the
improvement of the inmates. Constant em?
ployment Of some kind should be insisted
upon. Various kinds of remunerative, labor,
suited tofhe capacity of the criminals, should
be introduced. And then, as the majority of
those conflucd there are young, certain hours
each day should be scrupulously devoted to
moral a?d educational training. For a lack of
this last, I have felt constrained to sentence,
particularly the bays, to the Jail, that they
might receive the benefits of a school, which
is sustained there by the rforts of a few be?
nevolent Individuals. Then quiet, decent,
courteous deportment should be expected from
all at all limes. All this oould be accomplished
with the institution In its present locality. But
should the city purchase lands outside for cul?
tivation, and erect upon them buildings, em?
bracing shops for various kinds ol mechanical
labor, not only could all thia be realized, but
the establishment might be made nearly or
quite to sustain Itself.
Thc management of this institution under
the present master and matron hus been emi?
nently satisfactory. Neatness and order have
been distinguishing characteristics of their ad?
ministration. And while they have paid due
regard to economy, they have given very gen?
eral sal is fae ti on to the larke number under
their charge. The board ot comml?sioners
have discriminated closely, with regard to the
expenditures, reducing them considerably be
low the standard of former years. In 1
earnestness to prevent the frequent imj
tions that are attempted upon them by the
provident and lazy, they have, no do
turned empty away some who should 1
been supplied. However much tins is ti
regretted, Il could hardly have been avoi<
except at the risk of sanctioning that de;
of lavishness that would have worked iii
tice to the eily, and at the same timcwoultl li
fostered In hundreds habits of dependence
idleness. I am of the opinion that this inst
tlon could be made In a great degree self-i
raining. If the present buildings and grou
should be disposed of, sufficient would bc r
ized to purchase outside the city prc
sufficient ot fertile land for cultivation, ant
erect upon it buildings ample for habltati
and shops for mechanical labor. This acc<
pllshed, there would be no longer any n
of the heavy annual appropriation which
now required. I would therefore recommt
that immediate steps be taken to effect I
evidently Important change.
The only essential change in this departm
for the year past has been its gradual dlml
tlon. The appropriation for the present y
having been greatly reduced, this dlmlaut
became a necessity. The regular force I
maintained nearly its original member.*, wi
the night watch has' dwindled almost to i
Unction. The force as now 'constituted is 1
sufficient; also some change from the old ba
ls desirable. Ii we had only a regular force
would be far more efficient, even with a 1
number of men. In either case, I do i
think It good policy to reduce the number
too low a minimum. We have a great ext<
ol streets, and the more thoroughly they t
patrolled, the greater will be the security
life and property. It has often been said tl
in many Northern cities of equal populati
with ours, a less number of police than we e
ploy answers every purpose. This is true; I
the circumstances are different. Tnt
yet remains here an old antagonii
ot race, which, though becoming gradua
mollified, is constantly confronting the polli
man at every turn of his beat. A slight host
demonstration from either side is liable io ?
a whole neighborhood in an uproar, unless t
sentinel is near at hand to check it in its i
clplency. Then, owing to thc peculiar status
our population, to the lack ol' diversified oct
pation, to the apathy of a great portion of t
population with regard to schools, and to n
raerous other causes that do not operate
unfavorably there as here, our streets a
thronged, day and night, with idlers, partie
larly of the young, who must be watched co
Btantly to prevent dlsturbauce of the peac
and depredations upon property. It is, thet
lore, for the general Interest that we keep t
a substantial, well regulated police loree.
This is of Itself a little army, and is thoroug
ly equipped. It consists ot eleven steamet
all first-class; Dine hand engines, ia fa
condition, and two well furnished hook an
ladder companies, making in all, twenly-tvi
companies. It ls very seldom that haft th
loree Is called into requl.-ition, or that it cou
be used at the same time. With a better sn
ply of water, which ls much needed In varioi
localities, aud with one-half the present orgai
Ized force, we could defy the devouring el
ment. But lt would be a matter of great del
cacy to attempt a reduction. Each compati
has, at the expense ot much time and mone;
procured Its apparatus and perfected its pra
lice, and to discard either half might see
invidious. To avoid this, and yet to confori
the expenses to the low estate of the eli
finances, the pay for the year past was essei
Hally lessened, and the reduction tins been et
dared without murmur. SHU, lt is a questio
whether we can be Justified in maintaining th
department in its present overgrown cond
Hon. I am confident that to reduce the ntim
ber of engines one-half, and then to constitu?
a "paid department," would save a lary
amouut annually tb the city, while thc pro*
fr ty would be quite as secure as lt Is unde
present arrangements. Therefore, your ean
est and candid consideration ot this subject 1

The number has been much increased du rim
the year past, as the necessity seemed to re
quire, but with no diminution in Hie price
which is still S4t> per year for each lamp. Mon
light has been deemed extremely desirable. I
would not only conduce greatly to the coinfor
and convenience of the inhabitants, but I
would afford additional safety lo life and prop

the Gas Company, ata conference held by it
committee with the committee of Council ot

much as lt was quite equal to timi paid by un;
other elly, nud above that paid by some, evet
of our neighboring cities. But Their couutu
propositions were deemed so extravagant ai
io make it evident that they considered them
selves a monopoly. It therefore became al
most a question ot*morals whether to regan
Hie monopoly and let the people have llghr, oi
to discard it and keep the people in darkness
At any rate, the conlerence ended without re
suit, and no subsequent negotiations havt
The services of this officer have been Indis,
pensable. Some of ihe Improvements hereto
fore altempled have been conducted on plans
fur from scientific. The drainage, so vital tc
health, ls very Imperfect. The main drains, so
lar as completed, are well done; but the Infe?
rior drains seem to have been projected with?
out any well-defined system. The present en?
gineer hos surveyed extensively, with a view
io correct what has been done wrong, and to
reduce the whole system, present aud prospec?
tive, to the basis ol the tidal or main drains.
He has performed all his dulles with faithful?
ness and ability, and Ihe question should be
considered whether the salary he receives is
adequate for the kind and degree of service he
ls expected to render.
This is an instituiion, towards which the city
may very properly entertain a tender, but lot ty
pride; for lt provides for a very great number
ol the otherwise homeless and friendless. Hs
outlays must, of necessity, be very great; but
being mirier excellent management, Hie ex?
penses have oeen much reduced from those
ot former years, with no curtailment, of com?
forts or privileges. Still, os lt is a costly char?
ity, economy should continue a study; lt should
ever be borne in mind that lo husband charity
is a virtue; to lavish lt is a crime. The school
ls the candelabrum of the institution. With
its lights constantly trimmed and burning, a
cheerful and healthy glow is cast over every
other interest, some of which otherwise might
wear the tinge ot sadness. An addition to the
industrial pursuits of the Inmates, if possible,
would be ot great advantage; not so much for
the pecuniary benefits lhat would accrue, as
for Hie habits of industry and Independence
that would be thereby Instilled, and that would
arm the possessors the more thoroughly to
combat successfully with the struggles ol* alter
This ls the financial nightmare that presses
heavily upo every interest of the city, forbid?
ding either healthy* waking or repose, and, at
the same lime, precluding all ability to shake
ofr Hie smolherlug incubus. Still there begins
the dawn of hope. The people are waking up
to n true sense of their condition, and are
loo-ing earnestly for some way of escape.
The State might willi great justice and propri?
ety assume the railroad debi of the city with?
out eventual detriment to itself, uud to ihe im?
m?diate and perpetual ad vant ge of the city.
With Charleston, the metropolis, stagnant, und
dead, no Ilde of awakening would be senl
back through the various channels of trade
throughout ihe Slate. With Charleston alivo
and prosperous, each pulsation ot thrift would
bc transmitted to every extremity, vitalizing
everything in its course, and receiving fresh
Impetus in return. Should Hie Stale, how?
ever, not see flt to couslder our interests as
vital to its owu, ll will not do lo despair. The
present administration, fortunately, has not
added a dollar to the debt; on the contrary, lt
has lessened the liabilities of the city nearly, if
not quite, a hundred thousand dollars. But
with this slow process, even if lt could be kept
up, it would require more than three-quarters
oi a century, of the present oppressive rate of
taxation, to extinguish the debt. Some more
speedy and effective method must be devised.
At Ihe present rate, not only must an amount
be raised annually sufficient to pay the interest
on undue stock, but there is a past due debt
of $260,000 that will haunt us without mercy
until cancelled. Among other schemes pro?
posed lo liquidate our debt, I would call your
earnest attention to a very labored and well
advised plan which accompanies the report of
the city appraiser.
Should this, however, meet with public dis?
favor, some other must be adopted that will
meet the case. Where there ls determination
anything can be achieved but Impossibilities;
and already that determination begins to be
manifest among the peuple. Besides, we have
here abundant elements ot success, if only
they can be allowed full opportunity to de?
velop. Inaddliion to the Industry, energy,
and culture apparent in the native born busi?
ness cornmuntiy, we have a worthy, enlight?
ened foreign population, which, even if left to
Itself, would surmount all obstacles. The
Germans are not only Industrious and enter?
prising, but they are also progressive.
In the midst ol all business discouragements,
they have contributed their full quota to the
public weal; and, in addition, have erected a
magnificent structure, for their mutual im?
provement and gratification; and have, also,
under advanced construction, a church, which,
when completed, will be an honor and orna?
ment to the city. They further make the edu?
cation of their chiidreu a paramount obied.
With the Irish, there are high intelligence,
business tact and thrift, schools and churches,
and strong arms, ready, if needs be, to hew
out trom the start a high destiny.
Other nationalities are here represented,
none of them as dependents, but all willing and
able to assist in making honored and prosper?
ous the city of their adoption..
Then Ute large colored element is capable of
contributing much to thegeneneral prosperity.
With increased enlightenment, and with suita?
ble encouragement to pursue the various avo?
cations of labor and business, they would not
only provide well for themselves, but would
become Incorporated in the progress and well?
being ol the community.
Thus Charleston, though depressed, is rich
In everything but opportunities; and there is
nothing that more seriously precludes these
than the city debt. I trust, therefore, you will
not. only give your due attention to this vital
subject yourselves, but you will ever be ready
to co-operate with the citizens in any meas?
ures that may promise relief from Its burdens.
When this debt shall have been placed suc?
cessfully upon an accelerated downward grade,
then, with proper economy on the part ofgov
ment and people, with earnest appliance of
all revived and reviving resources, and with
the usual bounteous blessings of a kind Provi?
dence, the city will advance rapidly towards
that high eminence which Its favored com?
mercial position and inviting climate command.
G. PILLSBURY, Mayor.
Charleston, December 23, 1870.
WtlUam E. DUkcll.
At a regular meeting of the Survivors' As?
sociation or Charleston District, held on the eve?
ning of the 10th, the following preamble and
resolutions were unanimously adopted:
As we meet as survivors of thc late terrible
struggle, which has jost shaken the foundations
of this government, and In which so many brave
and noble fellows have been snatched away and,
In a moment, called to their account, the feeling
comes almost spontaneously to our 'hearts that
we must have been reserved foe a long term of
ure and usefulness here on earth. So manifold
were the dangers that were there met, and in so
many and various ways did death seize his vic?
tim, that lt seemed almost to require a charmed
life to pass through them all safely; and thus we
are prone to feel lt hard, when one who has
emerged unsoathed rrom this flory ordeal or dan?
ger and death, even la the time of peace and
quietness, In the bosom of his family, and sur>
rounded by all the comforts and enjoyments of
home, slowly wastes away from among us, and ls
taken od by the King of Terrors; and we feel as
though one moro of our band has gone-one less
survivor of the "lost cause" ls lejt with ns.
Such are the feelings of our hearts as we meet
now together, and mi-s a loved and cherished
comrade from our midst. It ls now some months
si ace our late friend, Wm. E. Mikel!, was taken
from us; and ytt memory brings him vividly be?
fore us to-night as we see each well-known face,
and we almost fancy wc hear his clear, ringing
voice, see lils sparkling eye, and feel the warm
grasp of his hand, as we meet to talk over the
past, with its trials, and to provide for the future
witli Its duties. And we feel the dull sorrow as
we realize that he ls gone, that we are bereft of
his counsels, deprived of his assistance jost now
when most we need them both.
William E. Mikell had a warm heart, and In our
duty now to care for thc survivor, who may need
assistance, to provide for the widows and orphans
of those who are goue, wc need warm hearts, and
we miss him. His was thc unwavering Oddity
thc ready hand, and his friends miss the one, the
needy feel the loss of the other. Thc record of Vf.
E. Mikell during the late war was or duty well
performed, trials uncomplainingly borne, difficul?
ties pere?veringly overcome; bat him whom the
shell and the bullet spared, disease has taken from
us. Therefore, be lt unanimously
'Resolved, That in the death or william E. Mikell,
wc fell the loss >>f one more brave soldier, who,
having done his duty here, has gone to his rest.
Resolved, That in his death we feel the breaking
of on-! more link that binds us to the glorious
pa-it- we mourn for one otner survivor.
Resolved, That with hts family we mourn In this
deep bereavement, and tender them our sympa?
thies for their great loss.
Resolved, That a copy of this preamble and reso?
lutions he seut to thu family of oor late friend,
and ?hat a b ank page In our minute book be in?
scribed to his memory.
