OND P&ISBTTBRIAN C U C B C H.-Tne annual

at four o'clock. The church was crowded
ed-In the pews along the middle aisle and
around the pulpit-wltli_ the numerous pupils of
the school, between three and fonr hnndred of
whom were present. Along the si-'e aisles were
the numerous friends and relations or the pupils,
who exhibited a high degree or Interest In the
proceedings. The Rev. pastor, Dr. Smythe, con?
ducted the services, assisted by the Rev. Messrs.
Adams and Wightman. The proceedings were
opened by the singing of a hymn, '-Marching On, "
by the children, led by their accomplished musi
cal teacher, Mr. Thos. P. OW'eale. "I Will Sing
for Jesu3," was sung next. Alter which a prayer
was offered up. Arter the next hymn, a selected
portion of Scripture "was read, and the children
all joined in the hymn, '-My Glorious Home," In
which thc boys and girls alternated in tue verses,
and both Joined in the chorus. The time was
well marked, and the alternate responses pro
uuced a pleasing effect.
A handsome Bible, splendidly bound In calf,
was then presented to R. C. Gilchrist, Esq., the
superintendent or the school, by Mr. Averill, with
a rew remarks in behau* or the school. The book
ls of the largest size, and bears upon is gilt
clasp the following luscriptlon : 'Tresented to
our beloved superintendent, R. C. Gilchrist, Esq.,
by the Sabbath Scltool of the Second Presbyterl 5
Church, May, 1871.'" Two beautUul Bibles or

tendent-one to Miss Ellen Bold, and the other to
Master George W. Cason-as rewards ror their
having brought, during the past six months, the
greatest number each of pupils to the school. A
beautiful sewing machine was also presented to
Miss M. Tiramons as a rtward for the highest de?
gree nf punctuality among her class, and on her
part In attendance at the Sunday School. The
beautiful hymn, "The land beyond the river,"
was sung next, after which the superintendent,
R, C. Gilchrist, Esq., deliveied a touching vale?
dictory address to rbe school. Alluding to the
noble answer of David, when King Saul asked him
"Who art thouf" the .speaker Impressed upon
his hearers that they were the sons of Carolina,
and drawing a picture of her former proud post,
tton, earnestly exhorted them to stand by tholr
State In this her hour of trouble, and not to be
ashamed of her whom God was but-purifying by
afllicion ; that they were the sons or the church
whlcl their fathers built up sixty years ago, and
to which they shoula devote their energies and
their time; that they were the sons ?f the Sna- .
day school In which, twenty-live years ago. he
bad entered npon the duties of a teacher; a
school where .the simple doctrines of eternal truth
were taught, and where all should try to Improve
the blessed privileges there enjoyed ; lastly, that
they should endeavor to be children of God. He
concluded with these words :
This is probably the last anniversary I shall
ever spend with you. lu a few days I will bid
adieu to the home of my childhood and these
scenes or my lanc-rs, to go as au exile to a strange
land. Fortwentv years I have been ynnr super?
intendent. Called to this responsible office in my
early youth, you bore with my inexperience:
Stood by me lu seasons of difficulty; co operated
in ny plans for the welfare of the school, and
edu ?ted me ror this post of duty. I have seen
the ?isplng infants, brought by their older sl-ters
to the school, succ?s lvely passing from r he Infant?
clasH through higher clas-es and the Bible class,
until now they are honored teachers. I have
heard many a dear child singing our sweet songs
a's tl cy were passing thia ihevailty of the shadow
oj" death, until their ears caught thc new songs
of Ute Heavenly land. But. I must go and le.ive
these scenes, perhaps, forever. Vet, I am not sad.
I only take my plough to labor iu another portion
ol the same great field, while I leave behind me
those who will take up the work where I pat lt
down, and can v lt on to fruition. Look np, dear
brethren, the fields are white for the harvest-the .
reaping time ls not far od.
Tne address was rec eived wlih deep attention,
and the pathetic conclusion had a marked effect
upon bis sympathetic audience. The children
then Joined la sloging "I he Valley of Blesiitig."
The hymn which rollowed/'HomeoftheSon'," was
Bung by the musical leader,Mr. Thomas P. O'Ncale.
The psplls now tiled out of the church, singing,
as they went, the well known "Marching On,"
and proceeded to the lawn in front of the church,
where a table had been, prepared, bountifully
?pread with all thc delicacies that could be com?
passed by the juvenile |m igiuation. At snort in?
tervals, beautiful fruit cakes were placed, and
the Interstices presenting a most tempting array
of smaller cakes, confectionery and golden fruit.
After a blessing by the reverend pastor, the
youthful pupils fell to with a will until al' were
satltifl-d, aud bore in knotty handkerchiefs sweet
fragments or the roast. The attendant ladies
and gentlemen were also Invited to participate.
The admirable arrangements .?ere Ute theme or
general remark, and thc celebra'ion; as a whole,
reflected much credit ou thc prosperous Sunday
seht ol and Its efficient teachers.

Fout PLAT TOWARD A PUBLIC CHARACTER.
There arc dark rumora that the recent arrest or
Majo'r Samuel Dickerson, In New York, which ex?
cited so deep and widespread an Indignation in
this community, was a '/put up job," or, In other
words, a conspiracy on thc part of some of the
major's Radical associates here, who were turn?
ing green with envy at his political and military
prominence, aqd whs hoped In this way to hav?
got him consigned not only to the Toombs, but to
Sing Sing, with shaven pate, for a term of years.
We arc glad to bc able to announce, on good au
tho: tty, that the vllianous scheme has failed.
Sam ?olaced his durance vile In thc Toombs with
his favorite pastime of draw poker, and ls now
once more triumphantly at large.
TnE ACADEMY OF MUSIC-A rare and at?
tractive bill ls offered by the Chapman Sisters for
their performance to-night. In both comedy and
burlesque the entire company excel, and thus far
their audiences have oeen de tghted. Bishop ls a
host In himself-a cure for the blues, aud a reme?
dy for the dyspepsia, while the Chapman Sisters,
supported by a carps of actors aud actresses as
good ns any that we have had In Charleston,
complete the sum of attractions that should
draw a large audience. The comedies performed
by the troupe are In themselves worthy of all
praise, and most enjoyable, in fact, if they
should confine themselves strictly to come iy and
farce, leaving burlesque for an occasloual per?
formance, they wou d draw houses equally large
and enthusiastic as now. "Checkmate" and
"Fra Diavolu" are on the bills for to-night.
Seats may be secured without extra charge.
