He ls held for examination.
CATS ASD CANARIES.-The Deutsche Zeitung
of this morning, In commenting upon a para?
graph which appeared in THE NEWS O? yester?
day, suggests that it was "highly Indiscreet to
mention the remarkable tax levied upon the
Paris cats and canary birds, inasmuch as if the
matter comes ta the ears of our lords and
masters at Columbia, before the meeting of |
.he Legislature, lhere is no telling what new
mischief it may put into their heads." It is
true that this leech-ridden community hardly
needs the imposition of any more kinds of 1
taxes, but it ls scarcely credible that any mode
of rascality, by which they might get their
hands deeper Into the pockets of our citions,
could be a novel suggestion to the black ar.d
tan Solons In the Columbia crow-nest.
A STORMT EXCURSION.-The party ol gentle?
men who left here some two weeks ago in
the yacht Loully for the Hunting Islands,
reached the city In safety Tuesday morning.
The gale of Friday lound the excursionists en?
camped on one of the Islands, and the yacht
at anchor in Fripp's Inlet to the rear. The
*Yorce o? the storm soon made a wreck ol the
tent, and the party were compelled to take
refuge among the sand hills. The staunch
little-schooner, however, rode out the gale at
her anchorage without accident, and on Mon?
day the party went on board and ran up to
Beaufort. The yacht was left at this point in
charge of two boat hands, and the excur?
sionists made their way to the city by rail.
The storm put an end to all sport, and was an
incident not to be forgotten in a hurry in the
history of maroons.
HEALTH MATTERS.-The city registrar's re?
port lor the week ending Autrust 19 exhibits
a total ol eighteen deaths, including five col?
ored and thirteen white persons. There le,
however, one more colored cemetery to be
heard from, which usually returns about six
burials per week, so iliat the deaths among
the colored population should be stated at
about eleven, and the whole number at twenty
four. The mortality of the previous weet was
thirty-two, and of the corresponding week
last year thirty-lour, so that an extremely
healthy condition ol the city is indicated. The
boord of health held a regular meeting yester?
day afternoon, and alter a full discussion of
the situation of affairs, took such action as
will tend to preserve the public health, and
prevent the possibility of the introduction of
aoy dangerous disease.
TUE RIGHT MOTE MADE.
Employment of the Fire Department to
Pump Ont tile Submerged Lots and
Cellars-Other Precautions Needed.
The effect of the article in our issue of yes?
terday morning, advising the pumping out of
the cellars and vacant lots, has been marked
and immediate. Dr. Lebby, on reading THE
NEWS the first thing in the morning, as is his
sensible habit, was forcibly struck with the
argument that the health authorities would
be, in the absence ol the street inspector, hela
strietly responsible for the cleanliness of the
city, and he drove down to the City Hall for a
consultation with the Mayor. His Honor had
lust finished reading the paper, and fully coin?
cided with the registrar's views of the case.
It was speedily resolved, therefore, to order
out the ' fidV engines and have these
Improvised ponds dried up. The
Mayor proposed at first to give to
Mr. T. J. Mackey the general super
vlsonofthe work, but he was speedly con?
vinced that, for obvious reasons, that would
never do, and the duty was accordingly as?
signed to Major E. Willis, the energetic presi?
dent of the /Ema Engine Company, who was
instructed to call upon so many of the differ?
ent engines as necessary to speedily remove
the water. Major Willis at once communica?
ted an order through the acting chief engi?
neer, Mr. Alexander, to all the different com?
panies to turn out and set to work within
their respective districts, and pasted notices
upon the bulletins informing all citizens who
had places that required to be emptied that it
would be done without charge upon applica?
tion to him. The steamers first employed
were the Washington, Hope, .Etna, Young
America, Vigilant and Palmetto, besides sev?
eral of the hand engines. Other steam?
ers .were ordered on duty as fast UB
they could be usefully employed, and
were kept at work all night, the firemen,
both white and colored, cheerfully volunteer?
ing their services, so that the only expense to
the city will be for fuel and the actual time of
the engineers. This prompt and efficient ac?
tion of the city authorities, and the unhesitat?
ing and voluntary co-operation ol the firemen,
cannot be too highly commended, and will
have the effect of improving the sanitary con?
dition of the city more In twenty-four hours
than could otherwise have been done in a
month. The citizens have a duty In this re?
spect, however, that should not be neglected,
which is to give information of all the cellars
and low lots containing water that they know
of, so that the engines may be Bent
to those points. This Information should
be given to Major Willis at*his office
on North Atlantic wharf; but if more con?
venient, the same end will be secured by
communicating it to the nearest engine
house. Another way in which the citizens
can co-operate' with the authorities In their
efforte to make the city cleaner, ls in the
liberal sprinkling about of such deodorizers ~;
carbolic acid and ammoniated lime, which can
be obtained in any quantity at the gas works
in Washington street, at the trifling cost of
four cents a pound. Chloride of lime can also
be had ire? of charge upon application at'the
City Hospital, or at the Guardhouse, and
should be freely used, especially on the garbage
which is put out on the sidewalks early In the
morning, and too often left there by the negli?
gent scavengers until its offence is rank and
smells to Heaven. There are many other
things that need to be 'done, to
complete the cleansing of the city, and now
that the authorities have manifested such a
laudable disposition to do their duty at last
in this direction, it is hoped that it will only be
necessary to direct their attention to the work
that Is required to be done to have it promptly
attended to. One of the worst places in the
city is in Market street, between Meeting and
East Bay. The cellars of the fruiterers stores
along this street, all contain more or less wa?
ter, floating and rotting in which axe melon
rinds, onions, cabbages, turnips, and all sorts
of vegetable matter. This condition of affairs
was plainly seen yesterday afternoon, when
the .Etna, in attempting to pump out one of
the cellars in Market street, had her supply
pipe repeatedly choked up by the filth that
was floating in the water, and prompt
measures should be taken to remedy
lt. Another precaution that Dr. Lelfty might
profitably employ, would be tr?r- distribution by
the city carts ci deodorizers along the gutters,
which now contain in some places consider?
able Sediment that has been pumped up from
the cellars by the fire engines, and, with the
adoption of these and a few other sanitary
measures that will readily suggest themselves,
our citizens will be able to walk the streets
with lessened inconvenience "to their sight and
smell, and snap their fingers at the chance of

THE ADGER LINE.-The splendid steamship
Manhattan, Captain M. C. Woodhull, reached
her wharf yesterday after a boisterous passage
from New York. She brings a crowded
freight, even her decks being full, and a fair
passenger list. The business of this favorite
line opens flatteringly for ihe fall trade, and
with a promise of more than the usual large
stream of patronage.
COLORED CHRISTIANS' CONVENTION.-The
second annual convention of the Colored
Young Men's Christian Association will assem?
ble this afternoon, at halt-past two o'clock, at
Wallingford Church, in Meeting street, above
Mary. Tue welcome meeting will be held in
the evening, at Emanuel's Church, and the
farewell meeting on Sunday, at the Baptist
Church. A committee will be at the depot on
the arrival of each train to receive and assign
delegates to their places. The latter are de?
sired to wear a ribbon badge ia order that
they,may be distinguished by the committee.
AN ENCOUNTER WITH THIEVES.-Between ll
and 12 o'clock last night, the watchman heard
some suspicious noises proceeding from the
yard in the rear of Messrs. Ravenel <fc Holmes's
store, on East Bay. He sent off for the detec?
tives, and on their arrival a party of thieves
were surprised while attempting to break into
Mr. Abraham's store, on State street. The
officers made for them and the depredators
took to the sheds, their flight being consider?
ably accelerated by two 6hota from the pistols
of the officers. The latter followed on the shed,
when a part of it gave way and they fell
through. No such accident befell the thieves,
and nothing more was heard of them.
KU-KLUX IN KING STREE.-This little village
has had a real sensation at last, in the arrival,
capture and escape of a live Ku-Klux, the
only genuine one ever seen in that Bection of
the country. He was a negro named Levi
Eaddy, and was accompanied by a colored
comrade, named Adam Coleman, both of
whom are notorious scoundrels. They rode
into town, without disguise, and fired into a
crowd of white and black men standing on
the street. Eaddy was captured, and secured
with handcuffs and chains, but afterward
made his escape, and the citizens express
great regret, as they wantecLGovernor Scott to
see a live Ku-Klux from Williamsburg, and
especially so promising a one as this black

Unromantic End of the Pioneer War
Vessel of South Carolina?
The hull of the old lightship Weehawken,
which has been condemned on account of
leaks, was sold at auction yesterday morning,
by Messrs. W. Y. Leitch iE. S. BrunB, to Cap?
tain Thomas Young, for S380. This old boat
has had a somewhat eventful history, and may
be said to have been the pioneer vessel of the
Confederate Navy in these waters, she having;
been purchased and put In commission by the
State of South Carolina In February, 1861, un?
der the following circumstances: TheLeglB
latnre ot South Carolina, at the session of
1860-01, enacted that the Governor should
purchase or procure, at an expense of $150,000,
three vessels such as he might deem fit for
the service proposed, to form a sea?
coast police force to prevent the land?
ing ot marauding parties, who, it was sup?
posed, might, in the event of hostilities be?
tween the two sections, descend upon the
coast In vessels of light draft to commit acts of
depredation and violence. The defence of the
long line of seacoast against an enemy en
force was not contemplated, however, as to
render such defences effectual would require
means beyond the resources of the State. In
order to carry out the object of this enact?
ment, General A. C. Garlington, the then sec?
retary of the interior, appointed a commission
composed ol scientific ana practical men in
this city, to examine all the vessels in Charles?
ton harbor, and also to make Inquiry else?
where, and report whether any could be pro?
cured which were adapted to the service
intended. Their report satisfied him that
there were no vessels in this harbor
which were suitable in every respect and
could be purchased on reasonable terms. It
was believed that they might be bought at the
North, but after diligent inquiry only one could
be found that it was thought expedient to pur?
chase-the "James Gray," an iron propeller,
built for the navigation of the James River.
Lieutenant Dozier was dispatched to Rich?
mond, and negotiated the purchase of this
steamer, at the price ol $30,000, to be deliver?
ed in Charleston. She arrived here on Febru?
ary 15th, 1601, and was fitted out under the
name of the "Lady Davis," her armament
consisting of two twenty-four pound howit?
zers. Enlistments of seamen were be?
gun, and had reached the number of
thirty, when it was thought best to sus?
pend any further effort to complete this
organization on account of the action of the
Provisional Congress, looking to the establish?
ment of a navy for the common government.
From that time until the year 18C3, the Lady
Davis was employed as a police and transport
boat about this harbor and along the coast,
and in that year she was dismantled and her
engines and armament transferred to another
gunboat. After 1863 she was lying np in the
harbor until the possession of the city by the
Federal forces, when she was made a light?
ship and stationed over the wreck of the gun?
boat Weehawken, near Morris Island, and bas
been employed in this service until she was
condemned a few weeks ago. She is now to
be broken up by her new owners and sold for
