THE OED E08T0EEICE.
There is no landmark in Charleston so time
honored, so rich ta revolutionary associations, so
identified with a century of events, as the band?
ing which stands at the foot of Broad street, on
the Bay. Rode and ragged it is now; mat Hated
by the shells or General Gilmore; scarred by time;
.?ith lichen growing from Its assures,.and rata
written everywhere upon Us venerable front. In?
deed, it has become the kingdom of the bill
sticker, and huge letters anil startling adjectives
descriptive of the exaggerated and Impossible,
have hidden the sightly proportions that were
wont to look down upon the busiest locality in
Charleston. But, thanks be to the spirit of the
age, a change ls soon to occur; and the old wreck
will be made once more to assume its shapely
beauty of the past.
For many, jnnny months, lt has been the aim
of our business men, who mostly do congregate
in the down-town marts, to secure fite removal
of the city Postoffice to its former quarters. Peti?
tions and political influence have been exerted, ?
and at last Congress yielded to the demand and
allowed aa appropriation of $20,000 "to ba applied
In patting the old pile tac :ondltfon>of repair.
The amount may not be sufficient, but lt will at
least enable the architect and contractor to re?
establish, on its former site, an institution that
has been a pilgrim since the stormy times of 1803.
The announcement will be received with satis?
faction by the entire business community, for a
post-office always gives vitality to the neighbor?
hood ta which lt Is located, and certainly there is
no spot In our city which, by nature and art, ls
better adapted for the purpose than that which is
already historic. Ur. W. B. Hoyt, who ls charged
with the duty of taking the preliminary steps,
will commence his labors within a fortnight, asd,
before the busy season or autumn ls apon as, we
hope to hear Broad street resonant with the
music of tho United States mail, lt will be some?
thing gaine J likewise, when the genial face of
Postmaster Trott beams from lils office windows
"down town." and ali happy smile lights up the
now dreary surroundings of the "Old Exchange."
The changes to be made have not yet been de?
termined upon. The plans are dally expected
from Washington, and on their arrival will be
submitted to Ur. Trott for his approval, and that
he may suggest any alteration which wdl conduce
to the public convenience.
At present nothing will be done with the upper
8f>'T. Only the lower floor will be the object of
improvement, and this will probably be divided
tato one spacious apartment for the general de?
livery, and three smaller ones for the subordinate .
purposes of the office. At first it was thought ad?
visable to make a new eut rance ou the north end,
bnt it appears that there is some dispute whether
the city or the general government own the prop?
erty, and the contractor, Ur. Hoyt, will therefore
retain the mata entrance tn its present position,
but materially change ita character, by removing
the present steps and making a broad opening,
with three stairways of ten or twelve granite
steps, commenelng flush with the face of the
.building. There will also be a private entrance to
the office of the postmaster on the sont ti Bide of
the building, the office aforesaid being the first on
the right as one enters the mata door-way.
The dimensions of the floor are about ninety-five
by 54 feet, which properly divided will afford am?
ple room for the accommodation of the public
The ladles wlU have a private delivery ia some
sultaole place, which has not y et been selected.
As was stated above, however, the working plans
have not yet arrived, and until they do, neither
Ur. Trott nor Ur. Hoyt, the contractor, can take
action ta'the matter. The latter ls at present
clearing away the rubbish which has been accu?
mulating for several y eire, and it may be ten days
before he ls ready to proceed with the work. He
believes that it win be completed wlilrta ninety
We hope that this improvement ls only the pre?
cursor of otters, and that within a year we shall
find the edifice .a. theatre of commercial activity
and successful enterprise, Just HS II was ta "ye
BORNE FROM THE FIE:.D.-The warm weather
of nascent spring proved too much for a white
man, who was laboring under a heavy load of
whiskey at the corner of Market and Church
streets, yesterday, at 12 o'clock, and he com?
menced to divest hlmseif or his clothing. This
queer proceeding attracted the attention of the
police, who speedily arsested him for being
drunk. By their efforts, his clothing was re?
placed, and the resisting prisoner was taken up
bodily by the police and several "colored volun?
teers" and borne through the streets to the Guard?
house.\A crowd soon gathered, and acoompanied
the cortege, cheering the efforts or the prisoner to
free bUoself. So much sympathy was manifest?
ed that a number -.^actually entered the Guard?
house to see -uhe result, and only st threat of ar
resting-Uiem.-could induce the others to disperse.

HINTS FROM WASHINGTON.-The Washington

A delegation has arrived here from South Caro?

officers residing in Union County have been no
11 tied? by the Xu-Klux to resign in fifteen days.

President that troops be furnished him for the

letter states that the disorders are mainly con?
fined to tne northwestern counties commonly
kno*n as the eld Calhoun district, and that the
civil authorities are una le to give protection to
loyal men there, lt lt ls also further stated that a

THU AMATECR DRAMATIC ENTERTAINMENT
at the Academy of Music last night was a signal
success In every respect. Never yet had the par?
quette and dress circle been so densely thronged.
Half an hour before the curtain rose every seat I
had been occupied, and hundreds of chairs gave
temporary accommodation to the crowd that
Ailed the aisles and lobbies to overflowing. Num?
bers of ladles, unable to gain admittance to the I
lower portion of the house, betook themselves to
tho family circle, where there was more room.
And the performance was worthy of the au?
dience. Although the occasion was not one af?
fording a legitimate subject of criticism, we take
leave to say that the plays were presented in a
manner of whlclrno metropolitan stock company
need have been ashamed. Every part was sus?
tained with an excellence that betokened careful
and conscientious preparation, and the hearty
plaudits and frequent doral tributes of the au?
dience showed that they appreciated the drama?
tic treat. The highest credit ls due to ail the la?
dles and gentlemen concerned In the affair, which
must have yielded a very handsome sam to em?

LIFE OF GENERAL LEE.-John Esten Cooke's '
"Life of General Lee," which will soon appear
from the press of*D. Appleton A Co., ls an elabo?
rate bffgrapliy, including an accurate bnt dra?
matic and picturesque history of those military
transactions in Virginia of which General - Lee
was the distinguished leader. This "Life of
Genera: Lee " was commenced five years.ago, in
1866, and the author then Informed General Lee nf
his purpose. The General, In reply, assured him
that the work "would not interfere with any that
he might have in contemplation; he had not
written a Une or an: work as yet, an might
never do so; but should he write a history of the
campaigns of the Amy or Northern virginia, the
proposed work- would be . rather an assistance
than ? Mnderance." As Colonel Cooke, In his
'letter, had offered to discontinue the work ir not
agreeable to General Lee, this reply is an obvious
sanction of the author's design. It ls prepared I
by a mau or large literary experience, who served 1
in the Virginia campaigns, and saw much of what
be describes; and General Lee's sanction of lils
design arose from bis knowledge of Colonel
Cooke's peculiar fitness for the task. The Gene?
ral has died without executing his at one time
contemplated labor; and this biography must, tn
a certain sense, AU the place, as regards the his?
tory of the Virginia campaigns, that Lee's own
history would have done, bad he lived to write
