Is THE RIGHT PLACE.-Wm. Grant, Ashley

youths who wounded Wm. w. Mitchell, a white
boy, In the ankle, were brought before Trial Jus?
tice SchrodeTyesterday afternoon and examined
on the charge of an. assault with a deadly weapon.
lt was proved* that Mitchell, a match vendor, was
Bitting quietly on a log on Market wharf, when
he was approached by these :hree young fiend?,
who are au about his own age. The boy Career
squatted down beside Mitchell, and, seizing the
latter's foot pulled ls into his lap, using, "Whose
foot 13 this?" Mitchell replied that lt was his.
Career then said he wanted "a little piece of it and
would cut lt off." Grant then spoke up and said
he would cut lt, and going to the third boy he bor?
rowed a knife. With the knife la bis hand he
sneaked np behlnjl the boy Mitchell, who was stUl.
Bitting, made a cut at his foot, and Inflicted a deep
gash jost above the Instep, which severed the
large sinew. Mitchell began to cry, and the boy
who cot him then ran off, previously returning
the knife to Brown. Some white boys who were
near went to the assistance of Mit _ aeli, and escort?
ai him to Trial Justice Schroder's office, where
the boy made a statement of the above facts, arter
which he was taken to Dr. Yates's office, where
his wonnd was dressed. Grant and Ashley were
committed to jail for tr lal at the next term of the

i 'll!-: HERMIT OF KING'STREET.
Quaint R?miniscence? of Taj lo r's Shoe
Store-An Antediluvian Slercnant.
The unseemly little house betwea Mr.
Schuchmann'3 and Mr. Oorwiu's stores, on the
we3t side of King street, known in bygone times
as Taylor's shoe store, bas beea purchased by Mr.
J. C. H. Claussen, who ls about to erect' in its
stead a handsome building. In the lower story
of this projected building will be conducted the
branch establishment of Mr. Claussen's celebra*
ted bakery, the present store-next to the Masonic
Hall belog about to be pulled down for the con?
struction of the new Masonic temple.
The little one Btory store with its dingy red brick
front and three false rusty green windows above,
has long been a mystery to the King street com?
munity. The youthful members have their ghost*
ly stories about the place and its mysterious in?
habitant The older portion of the community
recollect well the palmy days of Taylor's shoe
store, when bona fide bcots and shapely shoes
were retailed by the eccentric occupant. The
building is owned by Mr. Thos. R. Taylor, and
was built by him after the great fire in the spring
or '33. It has always been a shoe store, conduct?
ed on his own principles by the qnalnt owner.
People went In, salted themselves and purchased,
with no words from the proprietor except to state
the price. The store was kept dark.and in the even?
ing illuminated by a ' few old-fashioned oil
?amps. There was' no naring, pretentious
gas about the establishment-all was gloomy and
quiet. Up to the war the occupant was only seen
by outsiders when he hung up* a few samples of
his stock outside. In this way things went on
until the war. TheshelllDg Crove -other people
np town, but not so the shoe-dealer. Nothing
stirred him. Once he was seen outside when a
fragment or shell rudely burst through his domi?
cile. One night he was.?ntipednp town, bat the:
old hermit feeling was too Strong, and early next
morning he was again In hi's sanctum." No-one
lived with him. Easiness was dull during the
war and after lt. The shoe trade was merely
nominal with the silent storekeeper. The store
was not even opened. The'windows remained
closely barred, and a partially'-opened door only
served to make the darkness visible in the gloomy
recess of the store* No one can recollect of thc
store being opened since the war. The
proprietor was frequently requested to sell,
but the store was part of his existence,,
and he refused until successive mortgages
brought on a sale, and Mr. Claussen ls the pur?
chaser. The yard at the back, as seen from the .
neighboring houses, is grown up' with weeds and
brash, and ls a feature of the place. The chil?
dren peep in and Bee an old man with a long
white beard, seated In the darkness, and start
back as from a ghost. The quiet, however, wu!
be soon broken, and-the hermit of King' street,
in bis old age, must seek another resting place.
A few doors below, the popular lace store or Mr.
Read is undergoing repairs, and will soon appear
in all the glories or a stylish modern front. Quite
a crowd was collected opposite lt yesterday af?
ternoon as the workmen were engaged m holst*
lng a massive cast-iron front piece, weighing
over 6000 pounds, to Its place.' The Job is in the
hands or Mr. Devereux, and when competed the
store will be one of the handsomest placet, ^r the
kind In the city. ^_
THE COMINO THEATRICAL, SEASON.-The
theatre-goers of Charleston, always critical In
their histrionic tastes, are given the promise of a
rare series of attractions daring the approaching
seaeon at the Academy of Music. It ls, of conree,
.too early to attempt any detailed or accurate de?
scription of the arrangements that will be per
re ct ed before the opening of the season in Octo?
ber,- hut negotiations are >T:OW pending between
Mr. J. L. Moses, the business 'agent of the Acad?
emy, and such acknowledged stars as Lester Wei- ?
lack, Edwin Forrest, "Joe" Jefferson, Miss ,
Lydia Thompson, Madame Jananschek, and a ,
dozen others - of hardly less -celebrity, ,
which have already resulted In the engagement ,
of all those named, the only matter or detail still
pending being the terms for whick the several en- ;
gagements Bhonld be made, and the order in .
which the respective companies shall occupy the ,
theatre. Ia the meantime the Academy ls under- ,
going considerable repairs and refurnishing,
which will add to its already numerous attrac?
tions to the rashlonable amu;ement-seekers ot the
winter of lS"l-'2.
A RADICAL BOOMERANG.-The Columbia
Union has taken occasion recently to devote some j
space to what we suppose it considers a criti?
cism of the memorial address of the Rev. Dr. ,
Glrardeau, delivered on the occasion of the rein- i
tennent of the Confederate dead from the battle* j
field of Gettysburg. The Union's ai tide calls for <
no reply, because It does not attain to that de?
gree of courtesy, pertinence or coherence which j
wonld entitle it to be called criticism, and it will j
be passed by as simply a vituperative, illogical ?
and personal attack, innocuous because directed i
against one so thoroughly known, respected and
beloved as the reverend gentleman named. IIB ?
production at this time should, however, and ?
doubtless will, have the Incidental good result ot* ?
inducing many to read for themselves the memo- :
rial address of Dr.* Glrardeau, which t -ally con?
tains no sentiment or expression unworthy of
tito patriotic and pions author, or unbecoming a :
minister of the Gospel' of Peace. It may be ?
found on Bale at the book-Btores for the benefit of
the memorial fund, and should be read and re- j
membered by every Carolinian.
A^RTING TESTIMONIAL.-The guests ot the '
MUls House last evening participated in a very
pleasant affair, the occasion being thWieparture
of Mr. Frank Roach, one of the gentlemanly and
efficient, clerks of that establishment, for the
North, and the presentation to him or an elegant?
ly engrossed testimonial, reading as rollo WA, and
signed by nearly every gentleman stopping at
MILLS HOUSE, CHARLESTON. S. C., Jnly 31.
We, the undersigned guests and patrons of this
hotel, desire to extend to Mr. Frank Roach Borne
acknowledgment, of our appreciation or the uni?
form courtesy that ho has always extended to us. '
In our relations wich him we have found him ever
at his post, willing and obliging. And no matter
where he may at some future time cast his lot,
(sincerly hoping, however, that that future time
may be far distant.) we are convinced from our
pleasurable experience that his generous, manly
conduct and mose qualities that make the gentle?
man, which he possesses hi such an emi?
nent dfgree, will at once make' bim the
general favorite,' as beyond all doubt be ii,
here. There are none who sign this bnt can with
pleasure recall repeated -attentions and acts of
kindness from him, wnloh, though perhaps seem?
ing but .small at the time.; yet go far toward
smoothing the path we tread through .lire. With
one accord we wish him- happiness and success,
and hope that his future days may always be as
pleasant as ours have been through his endeavors
dnnng our sojourn here.
The presentation-was made by General Wm.
Gurney in a few felicitous remarks,and responded
to by the blushing recipient, with a casual refer?
ence to the real pain he reit at the separation, and
a supplementary allusion to the champagne that

A Succinct Statement of the Fruits of
Radical Was te an tl Mismanagement.
The formal organization of the new. board ol
Behool commissioners, and the business transact?
ed at their meeting on Monday evening, have
already been reported in TBS NEWS; A fall and
Interesting statement of the present actual con?
dition of the school, and the difficulties In the
way of their immediate reopening, has now been
made by- Mr. Memmlnger, the chairman of the
new board, frora_ which the following facts are
extracted: None of the salaries or the teachers
and other employees of the f-chbol' have been
paid beydnd the 1st of January last; there ls,
therefore, now doe, the entire salaries from Jan?
uary to July, when the BChools were closed,
amounting to somewhere between $18,000 and
$20,000. The only means provided for paying
these arrears' consists of the portion dbe
this county from the general school appro?
priation made at thc last session of the Legis
l?tate. This is estimated .at, say, $9000, and
when paid lt wlli pay the teachers' Balarles to the
1st of April last, leaving still due the salaries for
teachers from April to July, and those for other
employees to the present date, which, in round
numbers, may be estimated* at $10,000'. The
only means a"t the command^of the new
board to meet this debt, and to reopen and carry
on the schools, ls the power granted by the act of |
March 6,1871, to levy a tax not to exceed one and
one balf mills on all taxable property m the etty or
Charleston. Tuts tax, by the express terms or
the ac, must be collected as other city taxes are,
and the money placed In the city treasury, it is
therefore certain that no money can be realized
by the board until the end of Jannary next.
Under these circumstance?, ir the schools
should be opened In October, there would
be added another ten thousand dollars of
debt to the already existing debt, before
the board could have any means of pay?
ment, and its action would continue to -be em?
barrassed with a barden from which there ls no
prospect of relief. In the present condition of
the citizens of Charleston it would % not be expe?
dient to malte the school tax more than one mill
on the city property, and the amount collected
would not be more than sufficient to pay tho cur?
rent expenses of the scboolB. The board ls, there?
fore, reduced to the necessity of choosing be?
tween evils, and the least of these would seem to
he to delay the reopening of the schools until the
first of January. The Intermediate tune may be
employed In repairing the buildings wherever
necessary, In reorganizing the various depart?
ments, and tn endeavoring to get some help from
the Legislature to remove existing embarrass?
