EXTENSTVBVBOBBEBY-THE THIEVES IN JAIL.
The daring and successful burglary, which was
committed last Sunday morning upon the grocery
store of Mr. F. Wehrmann.at the corner of Laurens
street and East Bay, has been completely ferretted
ont by Lieutenant Phlllppy and the detective
force, and yesterday afternoon Chas. Lloyd, Mary
Grlpon, Wm. alias Neptune Smalls, and Thomas
?gleason, the principal parties ImpUcated, were
brought berore Trial Justice Schroder for exam?
ination. From the evidence given by the detec?
tives, and the confessions of Lloyd, it seems that
Sunday evening, Robert Wickels, a eort or crim?
inal warming pan, was arrested on suspicion or
the robbery. Bob had nothing to do with this,
hut trembling lor numerous other peccadilloes or
his own, gave valuable information, which led to
the arrest of Charles Lloyd on yesterday after?
noon. Upon Lloyd's premises was found a large
portion of the stolen property, consisting or a
barrel of flour, two bags ditto, three demijohns
of whiskey, several thousand cigars, a large lot
of fish lines, a rice, two pistols, and
some rice and wine. Soon after his arrest, Lloyd
confessed to having committed the robbery with
his pata above mentioned, and also stated that
the rest of the goods had been stored at the junk
shop of Thomas Gleason, in Johnson's Row, East
Bay. The accomplices were then arrested at their
several residences, and a Bearch warrant having
been procured yesterday morning, the officers
proceeded to search the premises of Gleason.
They found two and a hair ban els of coffee, a cop?
per pump, a lot or knives and forks, a bushel or
parched coffee, a demijohn of bitters and four
boxes of soap. In addition to these, seven boxes
of cigars and three empty ones, three quarter
boxes or tobacco and part or a whole box and
some empty coffee bags were found, which were
Identified by Mr. C. H. Meyer as his property,
stolen last month from his store in Calhoun
street. The rest of the goods were identified by
Mr. Wehrmann and delivered to him. The prison?
ers were all committed fer trial, with the excep?
tion or Gleason, who gave ball for his appear?
ance at the next term of the Court of General
". TBE NOMINATING CONVENTION.
The delegates elected at the late ward meet
in ga to the convention for -nominating a Mayor
and Aldermen, assembled last evening at the Ma?
sonic Hail, pursuant to the caji of the committee.
They are as foliowr : from
Ward 1-W. S. Adams. B. Mclnnls, Marlow
Cochran, J. F. Mathewes, P. Tecklenburg; Aaron
Ward 2-Walter Webb, Sr.. Louis Habenicht,

The convention was called to order at half-past
8 o'clock, Mr. W. T. Burge being requested to take
On motion or Mr. R. T. White, Messrs. R. T.
White, George Logemann, J. F. Ma:hewes, James
Armstrong, Jr., and Aaron Harper were ap?
pointed a committee to nominate permanent offi?
The commi.tee, after a Ehort absence, reported
as follows: Captain J. C. Mlnott, for president;
J. F. Mathewes and Theodore Mitchell, secreta?
ries; R. E. Dewees. sergeant-at-arms.
On motion, the report of the committee was
adopted, and the officers nominated'were elected
The newly elected officers were then requested
to take their seats.
On taking the chair, Mr. Minott expressed his
thanks for the distinguished honor conferred
upon him, and remarked that this convention
was not gotten up in the interest of any particu?
lar Individual or any deaned 'political party. He
sketched some of the leading causes that had re?
sulted In the opposition to the present city gov
vernmenL and in the endeavor, through this con?
vention, to bring about a wholesome change. To
accomplish this difficult t iBk, it is necessary, he
said, for the convention to rise superior to all minor
personal and class prejudices and passions, and
select as a candidate for Mayor one whose record
in the past, whose standing in the present, and
whose promise for the future all show him to be a
Arm believer In the final supremacy of virtue and
intelligence over ignorance and vice-a man of
wisdom, of character, and of nerve, and, of un?
doubted devotion to the Interests or our city. He
spoke in a similar strain, also, of the candid: les
to be chosen to sit around the Council Board,
showing the qualifications they should possess, in
order to regulate the affairs or the city aright.
At the conclusion or the president's address,
Mr. W. T. Burge said that he thought it was to the
Interest both of the people and of the convention
that their proceedings should no: be made pub?
lic, and moved that all outsiders, the reporters of
the dally papers included, be requested to leave
Mr. John F. Britton moved to amend the mo
tlon, by striking ont as mach as relates to the
Mr. Charles Kerrison Bpoke against the amend?
ment. He remarked that the convention was yet
in its incipency, and if there should be any divi?
sions among them, it would do no good to spread
lt abroad among their enemtes.
The amendment was lost.
Mr. Britton then moved to lay the original mo?
tion on the table, which was lost in like manner.
Mr. Barge's motion was then pat and carried,
and the sergeant at arms was forthwith directed
to olear the hall.
The following pa, tuulare were kindly furnish?
ed ns by the secretaries after the adjournment
last night. Mr. Duncan Cameron was accepted
as a delegate forward 8 In place of Mr. Mathewes.
Arnie was adopted, that no delegate should
speak over five minutes, ormore than twice on the
same question without the consent of the conven?
Mr. W. E. Fraser nominated General John A.
Wagener for Mayor; and Mr. John F. Britton
nominated Major E. Willis. The roll was called,
and the vote taken by wards, and General Wag
erner chosen as the nominee, having received all
me vot*>3 but one. -
The number of votes cast was 46,45 for General
Wagener, and 1 for Major E. Wiliis.
A committee of live was then appointed to In?
form General Wagener of his nomination. The
following gentleman constituted thc committee:
W. E. Fraser, M. Cochran, P. Tecklenburg, R.
Washington and C. Kerrison. Jr.
A motion was made by Mr. w. T. Burge, that the
chairman of each ward delegation notify the
presidents or their several ward clnba that this
convention has no Jurisdiction to nominate
school commissioners, and that each ward be re?
quested to nominate one.
A mot on by Mr. Britton to proceed to the
nomination of Aldermen was lost by an amend?
ment being adopted to take a recess of fifteen
General Wagener^as Introduced, and received
an enthusiastic welcome. The'doors were thrown
open to the public, and many persons came In
to listen to the general's remarks. Mr. Daniel B.
Smith, delegate from Ward 8, replied, assuring
G.-neral Wagener of his hearty support and confi?
dence. General Wagener addressed the meeting
again, and eaid, that though born a German, he
was fully Identified asa citizen of Charleston, with?
out regard to any race or nationality. The general
was then escorted florri the hall by the commit?
tee, and the convention resumed its business
with dosed doors.
On motion of Mr. W. T. Barge, the secretaries
were requested to furnish the press with the pro?
ceedings of the convention.
On motion, It was resolved that this convention
adjourn subject to the call of the president and a
majority of the chairmen of dele gates from the

cotton press," bnilt at their shops. This press
has taken tho premium against strong competi?
tion at every place where it has been exhibited,
lt is strongly built, light and compact, occupying
a space of about fonr and a half feet wide, seven
and a half feet long, and ten feet high, and can be
taken apart and pnt together again easily by any
hand on a plantation. The press 1B BO construct?
ed as to be worked by horse power, but 1B of such
immense power, that, with a simple lever, one
man can press a bale of cotton weighing 500
pounds in five minutes. It has also been tried by
many with the sea Uland cotton, and several
prominent factors testify that it operates with
equal success, ?without mjury to the staple. Mr.
Russell has the contract from the inventor for
making and selling the press in this State, and aa
every machine he receives an order for will be
manufactured at his Bhops in this city, purchasers
may rely upon a first-class article. They are Bold
at $185 apiece.

TEE BIBLE SOCIETY OP CHARLESTON, AND
rHE BBITISH AND FOBEIGN BIBLE SOCIETY OP
GREAT BBITAIN.-During the late civil war, when
all communications were cut off with the North,
the Bible Society of Charleston found itself with?
out Bibles to supply the wants of our soldiers
ind people. In this strait they made application
to the British and Foreign Bible Society in Lon?
don, who promptly forwarded them Bibles to the'
value of more than one thousand dollars, most
generously allowing them to defer payment until
it was convenient
The calamitous Issue of the war destroyed the
means of the society, and its members became
so few and so much impoverished that payment
was impossible for many years.
The earnest efforts of the few remaining mem?
bers have lately revived the society, and its first
effort bas been to discbarge the debt. . The sub?
joined correspondence will exhibit a pleasing ex?
hibition of the generous and Christian spirit with
which the English society has responded:
CHARLESTON, April 6,1871.
To the President of the British ana Foreign Bi?
DEAR SIB-The Charleston Bible Society, of
which I am president, recognize with gratitude
the debt which they owe you for the Bibles furnish?
ed them during the late war. They regret deeply
their inability to pay the same. No part of the
South has suffered more grievously from the ef?
fects of the war than that which formerly sus?
tained the society, and the prospect of improve?
ment ls S3 distant and uncertain that we have
deemed it best to acquaint you with our condition,
and offer y on the only means of payment at our
Our permanent funds have been reduced to a
property the whole income of which is less than
$200, and our income for subscribers ls about
the same amount, so that we can denve no help
to pay debt from these sources. Besides these
we have a bond of the State of Sonth Carolina for
$550, which being for past arrears of interest, 1B
available for the payment of debt. This bond the
society have directed me to place at your com?
mand on account of the debt, and accordingly I
will dispose of lt at your pleasure. We would
have sold the bond and remitted the proceeds but
for the fact that a sudden depression has occur?
ed in the price of the bonds of the State, and as
we had nothing else to offer, we thought lt unwise
to sacrifice what was substantially yours with?
out your direction. Permit me to add, as evinc?
ing the feeling of our society in regard to this
debt, that last year the society come into posses?
sion of a small house and lot in Charleston, worth
about $1000, under a devise, and they determined
to Bell the same and remit yon the money. But
upon submitting the titles for the consideration
of counsel, lt was determined that the aoclety
could not legally alien the property.
With much respect, your obedient servant,

should be cancelled.
