bers from 1829 to 1889, and an historical sketch or
MAIL IRREGULARITIES-.-A 'subscriber at

2358 bales upland cotton, 323 sacks cottcn seed,
and 325 tons phosphate.
MART STUART'S " PRAYER.-The beautiful
rayer written by Mary Stuart on the eve of her
execution ls doubtless familiar to our older read?
ers. We print lt, however, for the benefit of the
rising generation. It ls as follows:
"O, Domine Deus, Speravl in te,
0, Jesu, ml care, nunc litiera me.
In doris catenls,
In miseris poenls,
Desidero te l
Languendo, gemendo, et genuflectendo,

FEMALE INTOXICATION.-On Monday evening
Emma Nichols, a white woman or a very disrepu?
table character, got on one or her periodical
sprees in Beaurain street. A1 ter drinking herseir
into a beastly state of Intoxication, she indulged
ui a series or whoops and yells, varied by the most
disgusting demonstrations. She was arrested In
the midst or her orgy and locked np for the night
at the Guardhouse. Her frequent confinement at
this place enabled her to come before the Mayor,
wita more than usual effrontery, and she was
sentenced to the House of Correction ?for ten
THE LADIES' GUNBOAT.-The sunken Con?
federate ram Georgia, better known during the
late war to the people ot this State as the "Ladle3"
Gunboat," (->hc havlug been ?julie by contribu?
tions from the patriotic wives, mothers and
daughters of the soldiers of the lost canse,) ts
aliout to be removed from the river abreast of Fort
Jackson, where she was sunk by her crew on the
evacuation of Savannah by General Hardee, In
December. 1S54. Captain Abell, who has charge
of the work, has blown off the Iron roor or the
djeorgia with powdeg, and by the aid or careful
and experienced divers, will soon succeed In re?
moving the obstructions completely.
REV. GEORGE C. NEEDHAM.-This esteemed
and worthy minister left our city, m the steamer
Charleston, yesterday. A growing interest has
been awakened by his services, which have been
characterized by the utmost simplicity and fervor.
Judging by the ordinary standard, no one would
describe Mr. Needham as an orator, or even as a
revivalist. He adopts no arts of excitement,
creates no sensations, uses no brilliant climaxes
and antitheses, never apostrophises the earth or
storms the heavens; nor ls he specially charac?
terized by what the French call "onction." He
is simply a herald of truth which he believes with
all his heart; which he enjoys himself, and would
fain communicate to others, and ia which he be?
lieves a divine power to dwell. With those doc?
trines of religion which cluster around the cross,
he ls experimentally conversant. He Illustrates
them by striking Incidents-not a few or them
passages from his own history. And so lus dis?
courses are al! or them rresh, and give to ramlllar
truths thc garb and charm of novelty. Besides,
Mr. Needham is rapid and fluent, with a good
share of common sense, and of-much amiability
of temper, and familiar with Scripture and with
modern devotional poetry, which last he uses
with effect both In his prayers and sermons. Th?
influence of Spurgeon ls suggested by his collo?
quial style of delivery, and his method or "Jraw
lng out the sweetness or a text." We understand
that his departure is but temporary, and that he
ls expected to return aud resume his labors lu
the course of a week or ten days. In the mean?
time, we learn that prayer meetings at 12 o'clock
will be maintained in the lecture-room or the
Citadel Square Church daily until his return.
These special services thc tender Interest awaken?
ed by Mr. Needham's visit encourages.

startling developments. Thc reporter for TUE

was-broaght before Trial Justice Magrath yester?
day morning, and tried on the charge of an as?

On Monday night, about 12 o'clock,'a colored wy |
man hamed Jane Smith, suffering aU the tor?
ments of jealousy and the Ares of an unrequited
love, entered the premises of. her successful rival,
on Calhoun street, who had lately been "married
to the object or both their affections. Ascending
a long and narrow flight or Btalrs, ?he entered'
the apartment or the sleeping couple, and seizing

hair was on the alert la a moment, and recogniz?
ing her old rival, Jumped out or bed and pitched

KATHLEEN MAVOURNEEN.-There have been
Tew larger audiences at the Academy this winter
than greeted Mr. and Mrs. Watkins last night,
and certainly none more appreciative. The acting
was superb, and lt was no mean treat to observe
the eager Interest with which the attentive au?
dience watched the development or the affecting
story of Kathleen and her faithful, constant
Terence. "Kathleen ^Mavourneen" ls a fine
drama, one that will never grow old; and there
are few stories represented on the stage that re?
flect more credit on thc'lrlsh. character. For this
reason lt ls always weloome l, and when played
as lt was last night, heartily applauded. Mrs.
Watkins sang well, and was repeatedly encored.
The compauy ls a very good one. and the seve?
ral minor characters were all well sustained. Mr.
Watkins merits the rullcst success, and lt alfords
us great pleasure to find that his efforts are pro?
perly appreciated by our citizens, the full houses
every night being the most substantial proor they
can give him or their approbation.
The programme to-night promises another treat
-"Katy Darling." None ol the lovers of the
legitimate drama Ehould neglect seeing these ac?
complished artists. _ _
EVERT young man and woman, and every
head ol a household, should own a bottle of the
