was for many years, subsequently to the abolition
of this office, sexton of the church. Bis aged
form has long been one of the landmarks of a by?
gone age. Bis ru n eral takes place this afternoon.
ANOTHER REVIVAL OF BUSINESS.-The old
saw mills on the pond near calhoun street, which
have been known for so many years as Bennett's
Saw Mills, are now in active operation again,
after a suspension of four or five years, -caused by
the dullness m the building trade since the war.
The new proprietor ls Mr. T. F. Brodie, who pur?
chased the water lots and the old mill at the re?
cent sale of Governor Bennett's property, and
after putting some repairs on the mi l, resumed
operations there about ten days ago, and has
been busily running ever-since, with every pros?
pect of a continuance of a lively anti profitable
POULTRY THIEF DISTURBED.-About' half

hurrying along with a suspicions looking bag
u?on his shoulders. Hailing the boy, the police?

Three goats, fonnd wandering on Meeting street,

-COLLECTING REST .-About 8 o'clock on.
Thursday evening, Robert Vesey met a tenant of
his, named James Goodwin, on Meeting street
opposite Chalmers, and thinking the opportunity
a good one dunned him for a small arrear or rent
which had been due for some tim? psst. Good?
win became highly indignant, and resenting the
insult, struck Vesey a stunner over the left eye,
which brought him headlong to the pavement.
Jumping upon als prostrate foe, Goodwin' then
began to administer asevere punishment, when
he was Interrupted by two colored men who wit?
nessed the affair. The combatants were separat,
ed and Vesey took to the law. The case came np
before Trial Justice Levy yesterday morning, and
Goodwin was seatenced-to pay a floe of $21 and'
costs, which he did in preference to going to Jail
for thirty days.
PRIZE FIGHTING_Wednesday night on the
~ Meeting street road Alexander Simmons and
Stephen Campbell, two colored sages, began to
dise?as the qualities necessary for a champion in
the ring. The two differed materially, and com?
ing from generalities to personalities, Stephen at
^length volunteered te give Alexander a dressing.
The latter immediately showed fight, and thro w
ing himself Into a striking attitude, confronted
the vainglorious Stephen, who incontinently took
to his heels. Aleck pursue I and gave the flying
foe several blown wita his fist, not to mention a
few applications of his heavy cowhide brogans.
Stephen applied to the law, and yesterday morn?
ing Aleck was brought before Trial Justice Levy,
charged with' an assault and battery. He was
fonnd guilty and sentesced to pay a fine of one
dollar and costs, or rusticate at Sheriff Mackey't?
Hotel for the space, of thirty days.
THE WEATHER.-"A severe storm is pro?
bably advancing northwestward over Florida,
which will bring strong easter.y winds and rain
to the 0 n th Atlantic coast." So said the clerk
of the weather in Washington of the probabilities
for Friday, and the prediction has been literally
verified. The strong easterly winds were at work
in the morning, and during tne afternoon and
evening they made themselves felt and heard
most unmistakably. The way In wh ch the
gale Bwept down the streets aid around the
corners was ominous for loosely fastened sign?
boards and projecting tiles, and the'-flimsy cov?
ering oran umbrella only afforded Bport to old
Euroa as he. drove the blinding, spray beneath
every "angle and Into every corner of the shivering
canvas and whalebone. The promusd showers
ably seconded the efforts of the - wind, and the
heavy flood pom lng upon the housetops awoke
many a sleeper. At night it was worse than
ever. Jam satis. We have had enough of this
for the present.__
STREET GARBAGE.-M. Powers was reported
yesterday morning and examined before the
Mayor, charged with not removing the offal from
Beau fain street before ll o'clock on Thursday
morning. ' The evidence showed that the street
contractor's cart had been around the street and
cleaned lt of ?11 filth at ?nearly hoar in the morn?
ing, bnt that this offal bad been thrown ont late
in the day,'after the carts had gone by. Powers
was forthwith discharged. The whole communi?
ty are Interested in this matter, and lt is of the
highest importance that the scavenger work
should be thoroughly performed. The citizens
^should certainly do their part in cleaning their
"premises at an early hoax. When the street con?
tractors are in fanlt they are reported and
brought np before the Mayor, and the proper offi?
cers should Bee that lot-holders do not endanger
the health of the neighborhood by allowing filth
to remain upon their premises until the heat of
the day. The condition of East Bay yesterday
morning was very filthy, and upon the recom?
mendation of Mayor FUudrary the acting street
inspector sent down a gang of four men, during
the afternoon, to sweep the Btreer.
THE NEW TELEGRAPH COMPANY.-The. Sa?
vannah Advertiser says: "After a protracted sea?
son, fraught with difficulties and delays, and with
intense opposition to contend with, the South em
and Atlantic Telegraph Comps ny, of which Colonel
Coles, of this city, is vice-president, has extended
its line to this city, and will, within a week's
time, open an office for the accommodation or the
public. The entire line, by the time the telegraph
poles have been erected In the varions streets,
will be finished from Savannah to Washington,
affording telegraphic communication to all points
of the country. This competition (and lt will
prove a most formidable one) with the Western
Union will serve to reduce the rates of
transmission materially, cutting down the
expense or telegraphing to a figure that will
enable the use ot the wires to become more gen?
eral. While the Western Union is a well-managed
and reliable institution, its monopoly of the busi?
ness in this part or the country has rendered tele?
graphing somewhat greater in proportion to the
tariff in force in the States where rival lines pro?
voke a healthy competition, ir we are not mis?
taken, the Southern and Atlantic numbers among
Its stockholders quite a number of merchants and
moneyed men in this city, as weU as in nearly
every Southern corporation from here to Wash
tgton. Under these circumstances, lt behooves
i to extend the new Une all the aid and comfort
possible. The location of the company's omce
has not been fixed upon, but lt will doubtless be
in the Advertiser block."

A number of statements have appeal

who have daring the past year visited Charles
in the interests or some of the New York jo

went so far as to Eay that there was not In ?
City or Charleston a brick belog laid or a bulldl
erected-that the ravages of war had been 1
undisturbed, and that, in fact, the mural progr
of Charleston had utterly stopped. Such sta
m en ts as these cannot fall to have a more or 1
injurious effect on the indastrlal and basin
reputation of the city, and they are, moreover,
completely at variance with the troth that lt

THE MASONIC TEMPLE.
Another important public institution Boon to bi

NEW STORKS ON SING STREBT.
A number of Improvements are in progress on
King street, which will add greatly to the appear?
ance or that thorough are. At No. 2S3 King street
a new brick front ls being erected, to be finished
with ornamental iron caps, and trimmings with
rustic corners. The store on the first floor of th is
building will be occupied by Mr. John R. Reid for
bis lace and fanoy goods baslness, and the second
and third fljors by Mr. S. T. Souder'a photo?
On the same street, nearly opposite Easel
street, an elegant building is Boon to be erected
by Mr. John 0. H. Claussen, on the site at present
occupied by Taylor's old shoe store. This front
will be built entirely or Iron and glass, and will
probably be the most ornamental business struc?
ture in the city. A fun description or the new
banding was given in THE NEWS or last Tuesday.
Besides these Improvements, negotiations are
in progress for the erection of a block or five
brick stores on the east side or King street, Just
below Market, which will have the desirable
effect of cloo'ng up a wide gap in the unsightly
burnt dist ric \ and an offer has also been made
for the purchase or two other lots in the same
vicinity ror the purpose of erecting two'more
NEW DWELLING HOUSES.
On the sooth side or Cumberland street, a few
doors from Meeting street, a very handsome
brick dwelling and store la rapidly approaching
completion. It ls being built for Mr. P. L. Guille
shin, for a residence and gasflttlng eBtablisnment,
and will be two-stories high, wltn a bold Mansard
roof. The general plan of the building ls an ing??
nions combination or the Northern and Southern
style of architecture, and it has some features
that wlU be quite novel in Charleston. One or
these ls thc wide bay window that wlU form the
store fron t and be surmounted by a balcony on
the second -story front. The building measures
sixty-eight by twenty-eight feet on the ground
pian, and Includes, on the ground floor, a store,
a workshop and a commodious piazza; the sec?
ond floor containing a parlor, a dining room,
kitchen, pantry and two chambers.
Three small dwellings are also going up on
Queen street and one on Archdale street, each or
them being two and one half story frame houses
with 'inned roofs, and similar structures have
been commenced in other parts of the city, with
a view to aff irdlng cheap and comfortable homes

On South Bay, a few doers west of Colonel
Lathers's new and elegant residence, a series of
elaborate improvements are being made on one
of the Unest old dwelling honses in the city. The
building ls being enlarged and remodelled; the
kitchen which was formerly isolated from the
main building is bel?g connected thereto by a
brick extension, and the piazza ls being recon?
structed and heightened by the addition or one
story, which addition win afford one of the finest
views to be had in the city, embracing James

whole sweep of Ashley River for miles along the
Some considerable Improvements are in pro?
gress on Schachte'^ Hotel on the corner of King

feet, and on Union wharf the very extensive
sheds of the Union Wharf and State Press Com?
panies are being thoroughly overhauled and re?

A new Catholic church is being erected on Sulli?
van's Island, and 13 progressing finely. The walls
are np five feet, the buttresses are completed, as

of next summer's visitors to the Island.
This completes a lister seventeen building en?
