Tas YACHTING SEASON.-What-bas -become
of our yacht clubs/ Two. ox three years ago a

Several races took place, and even the young

OUR SALT-WATER LAKES.-in important
sale of lands, in which the city authorities as
well as the citizens of the western portion ol
P -Charleston should be Interested, ls announced tb
take place to-day. We refer ' to the water lots
belonging to the estate or the late Governor Ben
nett, situated lu the immediate vicinity or Rut?
ledge and Calhoun streets, and embracing the
lots from which the city tidal drains draw water.
Should the salt-water ponds pass into the bands
of private persons, they will soon be converted
into mud heaps as unsightly as they win be un?
healthy. The city, on the other hand, could buy
these ponds for a small sum, and, by repairing
the floodgates, keep them always filled with
water. This would materially add tp the value
of property in the vicinity, while to aUow them
to pass Into the possession of third parties wlU
seriously injure both the salubrity and good looks
of the neighborhood. Unless the city takes them
now, the authorities may have to boy these ponds,
?few months later, from some Land Ring, at four
or five times their value.

THE PURIM MASQUE BALL.
A Brilliant and Beautiful Entertain,
li ever an^apparently /Superhuman task- is
imposed oar tn* pen of.'n journalist^lt Ja when,
after circulating brain-bewildered in that semi
terrestrial, seml-ctlestial atmosphere yclept aj>al
ma'sque, he attempti. within the four walls of an
Ink-bespattered sanctum, to perpetuate the mu?
ston that he ls still in fairyland. With a chaos of
sparkling eyes' and pretty speeches in his head,
and a tendon Acfittlts at the other end of his cor?
porally yet quivering with the echoes of the
dance, the process of collecting thc tangled
threads of fact and fancy, and weaving them
into a satisfactory bed quilt, with which to cover
ids hundred thousand readers, 'Is.a good deal
like making rove to a pretty gm orr each side.
He don't know precisely where to begin.
That the ball at the Academy or Music last
night was a grand, glittering, radiant jubilee-a
species or carnival In miniature-will be attested
by as large and happy a throng pr revellers as
ever kept.timexo the melody of a polka, redowa
or quadrille. That lt .was a pecuniary success or
the first rank, equal at lea3t to that or any prece?
ding Purim festival In our city, is also a matter
beyond doubt. "Purim," by the way, we may
Stale for the benefit of the uninformed, is the
name of a .festival among the Jews, In which
they commemorate their deliverance from the
wiles and-strategems ss recordedlo the book of
Esther. The observance oj" this festival has been
religiously maintained by all the Hebrew race
rrom Its institution down to the' present time,
although there la generally more of -merriment
and hilarious rejoicing than of sanctity about
the holiday. In the large cities of the North the
event ls always marked by magnificent balla, In
Which the display of wealth, dress and beauty can
scarcely be said to be rivalled. Here, too, the
preparations are on a corresponding scale, and,
for days before the event, the expectant fair sex
live in a wilderness of fabrics,.colors, and qnalnt
designs. How they took shape last night In toi?
lettes, some of which made men's hearts ache,
can only be known to those who, being present,
looked on the ever-changing spectacle, felt the
pulses of beating hearts, and were touched by
the magnetism of speaking eyes, "whose every
lash was a lance, and every glance an arrow"
eyes doubly dangerous, because they fired snap?
shots fr.im behind masked entrenchments. By
eleven o'clock* the ball was at its height, and the
vast throng undulating to the music of the
fine band tn the gai ery looked rrom that point
as ir rue Inhabitants or some fairyland bad bor?
rowed all the'hues or rainbow and aurora borealis
to visit Mother Earth and hold a saturnalia of run
and flirtation. With but little elasticity or ima?
gination, you might have recognized the repre?
sentatives or every age, clime, temperature, zone
and aation. There were princesses, postillions
and Paul Prys; clowns and courtiers; angels and
ambassadors; gypsies and grotesques orno name;
queens or night, queens qr morning; the last
roses or summer; indi -ne, Irishmen, Highland
erf, Ethiopians, first-rate copies of old-fashioned
portraits; historical characters, dramatic charac?
ters, and people known In literature..as Miss
Sllmmlns, Widow Bedott, Bob Swlveller's March?
ioness, and Salrey Gamp. All these and a hun?
dred more-mixed, muddled, heterogeneously
conglomerated, always on tbe move, ever chang?
ing like the figures In a kaleidoscope-constituted
a spectacle that no camera, could catch, and no
crowd of paint pots could imitate. There were
queer adventures, too. Men fell in love, and it
was painful to see them fall out again, when they
discovered after unmasking that they h id been
avowlng the grande passion to their own wives.
One young ? fellow ls said to Save flirted all tbe
evening.with his own. mother, and tore bis hair
when another cavalier-with a handsomer mask
"cut him out." Altogether, 'the circumstances
were what Mark Tapley would describe as partie,
The supper was an excellent and timely Institu?
tion, presided over by. Tully, who never seems
happier than when the chorus of knives and forks
ls at Its height lu pxy lng tribute to 'hla culinary
Thechier expectation o' the evening waa, of'
course, the distribution or prizes announced and
described In Tar Niws ef yesterday. This took
place ab mt hair-past ll o'clock, -under the auspi?
ces or three gentlemen selected to act as the
judges of toilette and the Impersonation 'of
character. A procession was formed at that
time consisting of two hundred couples, more or
lesa-one gets dazed in counting-and after
perambulating to march music for a short time,
halt was ordered, and Mr. Goldsmith, one or the
Judges, announced that the prizes were distri?
buted as follows: The first prize to the ladles for
the handsomest drets, to Miss F. Goldsmith..
It would take one of Jennie June's letters to
give all the particulars of the attire, and we
therefore omit lt; but lt was very handsome. The
second prize, for the best impersonation of
character by a lady, was awarded to Misa H.
Hoffman, and none more deserved it. The lady
assumed tbe part of an Irish washerwoman, and
she lacked nothing bu: the practical soap suds to
ra?ke one believe she was born on a bog. The
first prise to the gentlemen was awarded to Mr.
J. H. Hart, who assumed the character of Don
Cccsar de Kazan, and the second prize was given
to Mr. s. E. Loeb for matting the company believe
he wi3 a veritable Bob Nettles. The character
was admirably represented, and Bob himself bad
he been present, would have recognized a twin.
Among other excellent personifications which
may be named, waa a Greek, armed' cap a pi? ;
a knight of the olden time; a man of cards, who
looked from crown to sole as If he might have
been high, low, Jack and several games. He was
1 tolerably well stocked." Another gentleman
represented to perfection an exquisite of the Lord
Dundreary style; but the cap sheaf or all the de?
ceptions or the evening was the personification of
a fashionable woman of the period, by Mr. E. E.
Abrahams. Dressed lu the most killing style of
reraale art, his Grecian bend merged Into that'
jerky suaviter in modo, which not only turned
the heads or score or love-sick swains, but until
masks were removed, made every one curiously
ask, "Who is she ?"
The dropping or the veil led to many a curions
cor ;?; temps, and not a few retired to their
chambers near daylight, to dream ot mysterious
partners aid angels lu disguise. Finally, the
Purim was the success or the season.

"TH? ACAD?IT OF Mr/sic-Notwithstanding

ute of praise than were bestowed during the
evening. The builesque is full of good th lugs,

" TRIBUTE OF RESPECT.
At a meeting of the Clariosophic Society,
held at the tniversivy of Sooth Carolina,. Februa?
ry 25, the chairman o?:the committee appointed
to" draft resolutions of respect to the memory or
M. LaBorde, Jr., made the following report:
Since the last meeting of our society, our es?
teemed fellowmember, Maximilian LaBorde, Jr.,
has in the morning of life, and with a bright
career or usefulness and honer opening before

As a student he enjoyed the highest esteem or
his professors, as well as or his fellow-students,

been eur pleasure to know him as one or tire
most energetic and efficient members .of our
society-as one whose highest aim lt was to pro?
mote her Interests, and maintain her honor and

It has seemed fit in the sight of the Divine Au?
thor of our being to remove our brother from this
transitory state of mingled joy and sorrow to a
state of perfect and enduring, happiness beyond
the grave. There but remains to ns the melan?
choly, yet pleasant duty, while submitting la
humble faith to the-sovereign will of Almighty
God, to offer a last simple tribute to his memory;
be it, therefore, ' y . ? ' -

respected member, whose untimely and unex?
pected death bas left a void In our number that
will be long rind sadly reit.
