PORCINE NUISANCES.-The habit of keeping
a pig in the famhy ls kept up on the sly by many
persons In the upper part of the city, and in the

RT. REV. HISHOP W. B. W. HOWE. -In yes?
terday's NEWU thc election of Oils gentleman was
mentioned io the high and responsible office of
assistant blsliip of (he Protestant Episcopal Dio?
cese or soutu carolina-a choice approved by all;
for it has been the good fortune of Mr. Howe to
make a Ir.rge number of Mends outside as weil
as within the pale of his church, hence the great
Interest tu.tt lias been manifsted In the commu?
nity upon his elevation to tate honorable olllce.
Mr. Howe ls a native of New Hampshire, and re?
ceived his col eglate education in the University
or Vermont. Immediately after graduating,
about twenty tlv.t years ago, he came in search of
health to our genial climate, fixing his abode in
St. John's Be keley. Here lie studied theology,
and prepared for holy orders, and in due time
was o.daluet? by the late Bishop Gadsden. 1: ls
afuctworttvy of nore that St. John's Berkeley,
where he had been living while pieparlrrg ror the
ministry, as ve have just stated, was lils first
parish and Add of labor. There he remained
amil i860, whiju he was elected assistant lector
or St. Philip's, In Charleston, and upon the
reata of Rev. Wm Dehon, became the
rector of thut large parish. This position Mr.
Howe has retained to the present time. During
the eleven years ol his mini dry in St. Philip's, he
gave eutire and uninterrupted satisfaction to ves?
try and mem-iership. For rot only was he thc
kind and attentive pastor, ready at all times to
aid aud to counsel; not only was he forgetful of
self, and unwearied in his labors, but lie ls, lu ad?
dition, a very tine preacher. Endowed with a
a roug mind, carefully trained, and richly furnish?
ed both with patristic lore and the literature,
sacred and secular, of later days, he preached to
large aud attentive congregations, who were
never weary to sit under Ins ministry. Simple
and affable lt< manner, dignified in bearing, be?
loved and esteemed or all who knew him, Mr.
Howe ls a nue type or a Chiistian minister, who,
we feel assured, win provr himself worthy of the
higher statloi. to which he has been elevated, aa
he has hitherto adorned that lu which be bad
found Umseht placed.
DESERTERS ARRESTED.-Officers Davis and
Burke, of the detective force, arrested two sailors
yesterday morning, who are charged with de?
serting and stealing a boat rrom the British bark
