FRICAS_The Beaufort Republican says that

turning to his vessel, brandished a knife, catting

and pliantly went back to Bull River to join his

Albert H. Cole, io: being drunk and-disorderly
in Elliott street, was visited with a similar sen?
Wm. County, who applied for a night's lodging,
received it, and oh examination was ordered to
be held over for one day.
A LAND SLIDE.-In pulling down the Ma?
sonic Hall a great object ls to preserve th? bricks
whole, which ate to be used In the constructton*of
the new temple. This ls accomplished by an inge?
nious slide. A curbed track, the width of a board
and with raised edges on each side to prevent the
blicks runt lng off, has been constructed, reach?
ing from the back window in the tbird story to
the ground. The weight of the long, narrow
structure bends lt inward, and lt forms the arc of
a circle, supported at intervals by props as it
nears the ground. The bricks dislodged from the
high walls are brought to the slide, and one by
one are sent whizzing down the narrow track.
At the bottom they strike a wooden wall placed
to stop their course, and are there taken up by
one of the hands and plied. The building is rapid?
ly growing less, and the lodge-room has already
been taken down.
A PEDESTRIAN HANDICAP.-An amusing trial
of speed toek place In the city, on Saturday, be?
tween a fleet-footed son of Charleston and a
stalwart farmer, who plants up the road, not a
thousand miles from the city. The fleet-footed
made up for his reputation as a runner by carry?
ing weight in the cumbrous and rather unusual
shape of a dozen horse collars. Giving bis antag?
onist the sidewalk on one side of the street the
Charlestonlcn took the other, with six large
horse collars hanging loosely on each arm. The
race was a^out 250 yards, and at the end of the
150, lt waa plain that the horse collars had the
best or lt. The bearer came la twenty paces
ahead and took down the stakes, while his oppo?
nent came up out or breath, and alleging that lt
would bave been all the same [ir the feet-footed
had been hitched to a four horse wagon. The
? latter also came off winner in another contest a
j few hours afterwards with an able young me
AN IMMENSE MECHANICAL BAZAAR.-The fact
is not as generally known as it deserves to be that
the City or Charleston contains one or the largest
and moa: comprehensive engine and machinery
warehouses in any section or the country. The
establishment referred to is that of Messrs Cam?
eron, Barkley A Co., on the northeast corner of
Meeting and Cumberland streets, a visit to which
will satisfy any one that tais encomium has not
been misapplied. Here are to be found at all
times a variety of stationary, portable and agri?
cultural engines, saw mills, grist mills, gins,
threshers, cane machines, horse powers, .*.c, Ac,
such as is hardly to be surpassed by the fullest at?
tractions or a well stocked industrial fair. Here are
also railroad and steamboat supplies, oils, belting,
lead, brass goods, pipe, wagons, carts, trucks. Ac,
fi the greatest variety, all of them ready for
transportation to any part of the world Or for im?
mediate use. The reputation of the bouse for
prompt and fall hf ul dealing ls too well known to
require comment, and its business ls, as lt de?
serves to be, steadily and rapidly Increasing.
A MURDER OR A MTSTERT.-The Savannah
papers are full or the details or a horrible crime
committed early on Wednesday morning, in the
house or Mr. Joseph Davis, near the line of Bol?
lock ana Bryan Counties, and -about twenty-eight
miles from Savannah. The victim was Mrs*
Davis, a young women of abont twenty-five or
twenty six years of age, who was found sitting
np in bed, at about 3 o'clock In the morning
with her throat cut. and who died in a few min!
utes thereafter. Her husband was away from
home at the time, and Mrs. Davis had been sleep?
ing with two omer step-chid rea. She bad been
but or bed* and had gone to a cupboard, on the
door of which the little boy's pants, contain.ng?a
packet knife, were hanging. Soon after return?
ing to bed, she screamed ont, "I am bleeding to
death," and soon after died. The' pocket-knife
was afterward found in a tub of water on the
floor. It ls possible that she may have killed
herself by accident, or some night prowler may
have got into the noose and murdered her, but,
with the very meagre testimony at hand, lt ls im?
possible to form any idea of the truth. The coro?
ner's inquest was a most inconsequential investi?
gation, and the verdict of the jory was that "de?
ceased came to her death from some sharp In?
strument in the hands ot an unknown person."
SHOOTING AFFRAY IN ST. ANDREW'S.-A se?
rious affair occurred on Saturday night on Colonel
Gaillard's plantation, in St. Andrew's Parish,
which resulted In the shooting and serious injury
or Gibby Bryan, a colored man, twenty-five years
of age. It appears that the jealousy of another
colored man, Jack Bryan by name, had been
aroused by certain visits which Gibby is alleged
to have paid to his wife, and Jack had' threatened
to shoot Gibby if he ever saw bim about his place.
Accordingly, when Jack found bia enemy hang?
ing about his yard on Saturday, night he went
into bis house for his musket, which was kept
loaded with a ball and a miscellaneous assort?
ment of bird sbot so as to be safe for bringing
down almost any sort of game, and then went
m pursuit or Gibby. Fin ling the latter running
away Jack pursued, and firing at him, as ls alleged,
emptied tie varied contents of his gun in among
the poor fellow, who was round soon after lying
in a pool.or his own blood, brought over to
this city and admitted to the City Hospital, at
about one o'clock,' yesterday afternoon. It was
found that the small stock or hardware that Jack
bad discharged Into Gibby bad gone completely
through his forearm, fracturing the larger bone
and severing the muscles and had lodged in his
side. The wadding and charge was extracted by
Dr. J. S. Buist, and the fractured usia carefully
resected, by which means it 13 believed that the
arm may ba saved, although at'first lt was
thought that amputation would be necessary.
EDIBTO ISLAND.-The crop prospects on Ed
lBto Island, contrary to the general rule through?
out the State, are or the most encouraging char?
acter. There have been, so rar, no signs of the
caterpillar, and gentlemen from the island state
that they have never seen a promise of a better
crop, either before or since the war. A small
quantity of cotton was picked on Edlsto Island
week before last, and lt ls understood that on
Wadmalaw Island several hundred weight have
already been picked. The public roads all over
Edlsto Island have been In a terrible condition
ever since the war, and recently the citizens,
white aad colored, have been called out, in accord?
ance with the State law, to take their tours of
duty at repairing the highways. On Thursday
last a gang of about one hundred colored men,
who were at work upon the road leading to Ed
ingsville, indulged in som.9 very unseemly and
riotous behavior, pelting with stones and mud
every white maa who came by, with the single
exception or one gentleman, a Presbyterian cler?
gyman, whose cloth, for a wonder, exempted him
from the Insults of the mob. One circumstance
that aggravated the affair was that the sub-county
commissioner, himself a colored man, was with
the negroes, and if he did not actually incite them
to their acts of violence, at least made no effort to
repress them, and, therefore, tacitly encouraged
the outrages. The demonstration being wholly
unexpected,no opportunity waa afforded the white
men to organize any resistance, and as the au?
thorities, of course, did not Interfere, the howling
rioters had things their own way until darkness
interposed and they dispersed.
SHARPERS AT WORK_Last Friday evening,
a colored man from the country, named Lewis
Pugh, entered a store at the com er or King and
Cain .nn-streets, to make certain purchases. Els
rather ostentations display of a well-filled pocket
book attracted the attention of two aharpers,""who
had been following, him for some time, and en?
tered the store along with him. While the rustic
was examining come goods, one of the sharpers,
named Jno. F. Brown, made a grab for his pocket
book and got hold of it. Pugh turned and instant?
ly caught bold, of the thief, and after a short
struggle the peuce came In and took charge of
Brown. On the way to the Guardhouse, Andrew
Hudson, Brown's friend, came np with the police,
and after a little talking attempted to rescue
Brown from the guard. The latter were too
many, however, and Hudson was added to the
nomber of prisoners. They were brought before
the Mayor next morning:, who sentenced Brown
to thirty days in the House of Correction, under
the vagrant law. Hudson, for attempting to
rescue* prisoner was sentenced to psy ? fine of
five dollars or spend ten days lu the House of
Hotel Arrivals-August IIS and 13.
