munlty has not generally felt in an effervescent
mood; hence the break in the time-honored ob?
servance. As the entertainment will be almost
wholly for the benefit of the dusty constituents of |
the Mayor, it is hardly to be expected that the
taxpaying citizens shall foot the bill We pre?
sume the City Father intends this as a treat to his
children, and pf course will pay for lt out of his
own private purse.
ACCIDENTALLY SHOT.-Private Joseph Goul?
den was accidentally shot yesterday afternoon in

o'clock. He had just returned from duty, and

pistol fell to the ground. The hammer, which
was down on the cap, strnck the floor and dis?
charged the pistol. The bah entered bis ankle
joint on the inside Inflicting a severe and danger?

THE CORONER OVERHAULED.

OFFIC? Crrr REGISTRAR, 1
CHARLESTON, S. C., June 22, i87i. /
To His Excellency Governor F. ?. Scott, colum?
bia, S. C.:
Sin-I have the honor to request that your Ex?
cellency will submit to the attorney-general, Tor
his written opinion thereon, the following ques?
1. Has the coroner, nuder the laws of this
Siat<\ the right to hold an Inquest upon the dead
body of a person, who. while living, was duly at?
tended by a regular educa ed physician, who
gave a certificate as required by the ordinances of
the city, stating in every minute detail the causes
of death ?
2. Has the coroner, under the laws of this
State, the right to bold an Inquest over a dead
body, when the attending physician's cenlflcate
ls in possession of deceased's family, or when the
attending physician is In the city, and the certifi?
cate of death eau be procured from him ?
3. Has the coroner, under the laws of this
State, the right to hold an Inquest over any 1 ead
body unless he can show that he has reason to
believe that the deceased came to death by vio?
lence, or in some other unlawful manner, un?
known at the time, and requiring a Jury to in?
vestigate and determine how the deceased came
to his death ? Several inquests have been held
under circumstances Indicated by the foregoing
question, three occurring in the health depart?
ment of this city. The last took place yesterday,
when an inquest was held on the body of the late
messenger of council, a patient of mine for the
last twenty months, who died of disease of the
heart soddenly. Sly certificate of the cause of
his death as attending physician was in posses?
sion of his family ; this was handed to the acting
coroner when demanded by him; he did not re?
turn lt, but held the inquest.
I respectfully ask the opinion of Colonel Cham?
berlain on the law, and duties of coroners under
The feelings of medical gentlemen cannot be In?
frio ged upon In the future with impunity, while,
as tue chief health officer of the city, 1 may appeal
to the Executive of the State of South Carolina for
protection from such, ia my opinion, unwarrant?
able proceedings upon the part of coroners.
I am sir, very respectfully,
Tour obedient servant, -

STAT?; OF SOUTH CAROLINA, )
EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT, >
COLUMBIA, June 23, 1871. )
Tbe within is respectfully submitted to the at?
torney-general, at the request or Dr. Robert Leb
by. city registrar and supervisor of health depart?
ment for the City or Charleston, for his official
opiuion. R. K. SCOTT, Governor.
To Ms Excellency Governor R. K. Scbtt:
DEAR SIR-YOU have referred to me the enclos?
ed communication of Robert Lobby, M. D., city
registrar or Charleston, wiih the request that I
would furnish yon with my opinion upon the
questions therein asked.
The coroner's act of 1839, which ls still the law
of the State, requires the coroner, "when he shall
be Informed of, or shall see the dead body of any
person, suppo?ed to havo come to a violent and
untimely death, lound lying within his district,"
to make out his warrant, summon a jury and hold
I am clearly of the opinion that the law contem?
plates and authorizes the holding of an inquest by
the coroner only In cases of death which may be
properly prescribed as violent, casual, untimely,
?c.. and that on both of the cases which are stated
In Dr. Lebby'a first and second questions, the coro?
ner ls not authorized to bold an inquest, unless he
is furnished with very strong proofs, which would
justify the belief, on his part, that the causes of
the death were not those stated by the attending
physician in his certificate, bu: were such as I
have referred to above, as violent, casual, untime?
The presumption In the case of the death of a
person who has been regularly attended by an
educated and recognized physician of good stand?
ing, who bas certified the causes of the death, ls
very nearly conclusive that the death has result?
ed from the canses which the physician may
specify. The cases are very rare in which a coro?
ner could be justified In disregarding this certifi?
cate, and proceeding to an inquest.
A case can of course be Imagined In which the
coroner would be justified la holding an inquest,
even when the at< ending physician had given his
certificate that the deceased died regularly of
Borne disease. If responsible persons in such a
case would come to the coroner and make affida?
vit of the belief, and state facts 10 su po ort their
belief, that such a person had come to a violent,
casual or untimely death, contrary to the certifi?
cate of a physician, I think the coroner would be
bound to hold an inquest ; bat to do BO of his own
motion, and In the absence of reliable evidence,
would be cleary an abuse of his functions.
I would add further, that I think such conduct
on the part or the coroner, as la described In Dr.
Lebby's letter, amounts to official misconduct,
and renders that officer liable to prosecution for

SIR-1 have been directed by his Excellency
Governor Scott to acknowledge the receipt of
your favor of the 22d instant, requesting the
submission of certain queries to the attorney

TAKING A SCALP. -Yesterday afternoon, Bell
Maglaley, colored, entered the apartment of Het?
ty Grant, colored, her neighbor, In McBride's
lane, near St. Phillp street, and while getting
some fire, kindled a flame of anger In Hetty's
breast that would not be quenched. Seizing her
tomahawk, In i he shape of a blunt hatchet, the
Infuriated squaw d'Afrique "went ror" the ex?
asperating Bell, and overtaking her jost outside
the door, brought her to the ground with a blow
upon the head. A policeman here interfered, and
both the parties were taken to the Guardhouse

from sn ugly cut in her head. They were both
locked up, and will be brought before the Mayor

BASE BALL AND OTHER THINGS.-That con?
tingent of the United states Army, now on dnty
[?) in south carolina, nd; finding any Kn-Kiux
dead or alive-find their time hang heavily on
their hands. Th ? weather, too, Is very hot, and
what to do to keep cool is the great question.
Base ball appears to be the only solace lett for the
poor soldier. Accordingly we read that the "best
nine" or the garrison at Newberry have Invited
themselves to play a match game with the "best
niue" of the Columbia garrison, on the glorious
Fourth. The Invitation was accepted, and the New?
berry boys in blue will thus have a much better
chance to celebrate the Fourth after the tradition?
ary style, than they would have had, staying in
their barracks lu Newberry, where, we believe,
the sale or the "ardent" ls attended with more or
less inconvenient restrictions. Honx soil qui mal y

A FOWL THIEF CAPTURED AND SHOT.-At an
early hour yesterday morning a colored man,
residing at the corner of Smith and Morris streets,
heard suspicious noises proceeding from his fowl?
house, and upon going ont, found a colored fellow
attempting to break lt open. The thief took to
his heels, and the proprietor gave chase and over?
took him in Rutledge street, ne proved to be an
old offender and reckless character, named Abra?
ham Brown, ind was forthwith delivered in
charge of a policeman. The officer started for
the Guardhouse with his captive, who became
unruly, and at la?t drew a razor. By making
desperate cuts at the officer Brown got loose, and
waa giving leg bail In healthy style, when two re?
ports of a pistol la quick succession recalled to
his mind the fact that the police carry six-shoot?
ers. Four more shots were too much for human
nature, and Brown again surrendered at discre?
tion. He waa brought before the Mayor, who im?
mediately referred him to a trial justice. Soon
arter this, Brown for the first time complained of
being shot, and Bare enough on examination a
bullet was found to have entered the fleshy part
of his hip from the rear. The wound was quickly
attended to. and Brown was so little Inconve?
nienced that he was ready to attend his trial that
HOLMEB'S LTCXTJM.-The children of the
Central Presbyterian Church were entertained
last evenl ig by Professor Holmes with his Blnop
trie Lantern. The pictures were as Interesting as
ever, and afforded a vast deal of pleasure to the
THE WHISKET RISC-A large and excited
crowd of buyers and lookers on assembled at the
Courthouse yesterday morning, where Sheriff
Mackey was selling at auction a large supply of
the "ardent," which had been levied upon under
an execution. About twenty barrels or whiskey,
brandy, wine, Ac, were disposed of, and as the
fumes of the liquor was diffused, the bidding be- '
came spirited. The articles sold at fair prices,
and the samplers did their duty.
THE SOUTHERN GARDENER.-We have re?
ceived rrom the publisher a neat little handbook,
handsomely printed, and profusely illustrated,
bearing the following tide: "The Southern Gar?
dener, or snort and Simple Directions for the Cul?
ture of Vegetables and Fruits at the South, by Dr.
Henry W. Ravenel, Aiken, S. C. Published by
Walker, Evans A Cogswell, Charleston." Dr. Ra?
venel, the author, ls well known throughout the
State as a gentleman of rare scientific attain?
ments, especially in the fields or botany and natu?
ral history, in which he has labored with unflag?
ging zeal for many years. Bat he is at the same
time also an eminently practical man, a good
gardener and capital farmer; and the very best
proof of his practical good sense may be found
in thc fact that he has confined hl3 directions to
gardeners In the book before us, within very re?
stricted limits, when the temptation must have
been very strong, toa mau who knows so much>
to put forth a large book. The arrangement of
the work is admirable, and Its value as a South?
ern farmer's vade meelon far beyond the price,
which is only 50 cents.
CLUBS AND STABS_J. Chapman, reported

street, near Rutledge, was ordered to remove the
offensive animals at once.

ACADEMY OF OUR LADT OF MERCT-DISTRI?
BUTION OF PRIZES.-The annual distribution of
prizes ai|:he Sisters' Academy, Meeting street, be?
low Tradd, took place yesterdny evening. The
fair young pupils, attired In beautiful simplicity,
presented a most attractive picture. The exer?
cises were opened with music and singing, follow?
ed by a salutatory in French, by Miss Commins.
The graduates, Misses Aim ar and Commins,
were then crowned. A white rose was awarded
for exemplary conduct to all the good girls, and

was awarded for the first honor to Misses
Almar and Commins of the graduating class;

the exercises closed with the sacred spectacular
drama, Belshazzar's Feast, In which all the pu?
pils took part. The costumes were dazzling In
their oriental splendor. .Vise en scene in all Its
details dtd much credit to the painstaking mana?
gers. Miss Marie D. O'Connor, one or the young
ladles or the academy, delivered in a very hand?
some manner a prologue to this drama, composed
by herself. The entire aflair passed off to the sat?
isfaction of pupils, teachers, patrons and visitors,
ahowlng conclusively the progress made'by the
pupils during the past year under the guidance of
their admirable inst: nc tors.
THE SCHOOL COHMISSIONERS.
Their Inconsistency In Dealing with
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
Having been educated in the doctrine that,
in this country of Republican Institutions, thc de?
positaries of public trusts-the servants of the
people-were amensbleto the public for the pro?
per discharge of those trusts, I would beg leave
to ask why it ls that the commissioners of the
city public schools, at this particular juncture,
arter having voted to close Bald schools for an lu
definite period, from an alleged want of funds,
have refused to accord to tu? teachers of the3o
schools a privilege, for which there 1B a prece?
dent, it having been granted by a previous board
to the chairman of the existing board, at a time
when, from stress of circumstances, no provision
had been made for their maintenance.* I refer te
the refusal or the.board to allow the teachers the
use.or the buildings, in which they proposed to
continue teaching the children at Bach rates as
tho parents cf each might be able to afford. Ie
the use or the buildings refused to Mr. Archer
because he is deemed a le-B responsible person
than Mr. Geldings then was ?
Acd are the'board under no obligation to the
public to discharge so important a trust, volun?
tarily assumed ? If so, I would beg to be Informed
upon what principle of expediency they can jus?
tify their action in having thus shat ont a large
proportion of tae parents or nearly three thou?
sand children, in attendance at the schools, from
the opportunity of con1 inning th'lr education,
upon terms icitftin their means. For this might
have been done, had the teachers been permitted
to carry oat- the r p'an; whereas, from the high
rate of tuition preval ing at the private schools
many will be utterly unable to aflord their chil?
dren any educational facilities at ali.
And how does this action affect the teachers,
whom, In their resolutions recently published,
they took occasion to thank and commend for
"their patient and unrequited toil?'' Iflamto
judge or their sincerity by the practical effect or
their action, I cannot avoid the painful inference
that this was a mere form or word3-a Bhadow
without the substance. Thrown out of employ?
ment at a season of the year when to obtain it is
almost an impossibly, and with their salaries
six months ia arrears, they may, 1 think, without
doing the board An Injustice, conclude that In
their refusal to allow them the only means pre?
senting itself, of providing th? wherewithal to
keep body and soul together, they have manifes?
ted anything else than a friendly spirit, much less
a proper appreciation of their reaUv "patient and
In conclusion, I think I may fairly commend to
the board for their consideration the good old
saw, "Actions speak more loudly than words."
