islands as far as Beaufort. She left the city as
usual, on Tuesday last, and In crossing an in?
tricate part ot her route, known as Wadmalaw
Sound, got aground on an oyster-shell bank.
Being heavily laden with freight lt was lound
impossible to get her off, lt being ebb tide and
the night dark and stormy. Several lighters
were procured from the neighboring shores,
and her freight having been taken out the
steamer floated off with the rising tide. She
then went on as far as Edlsto, where she dis?
charged her cargo and returned to the elly.
The freight for Beaufort was left at Enterprise,
and will be taken on by the steamer on her
THE HEALTH OF CHARLESTON.
Action of the Kedfcal Society?
At an extra meeting of the Medical Society of
South Carolina, held on August 25th, the lol
lowing paper was read, and it was ordered
that it be published In the daily papers:
We, the members ol the Medical Society
ot South Corollna, feeling that our interests
are inseparably connected with the city of our
residence and the home of our selection, tully
alive to the advantages of her growth, her
general prosperity, and also to her character
for honesty, in view of the general circulation
of reports as to the prevalence of pestilential
disease, and the manner in which such reports
have been dealt with by city officiais, the
board of health and the press of the city, think
it best to offer a plain statement of the facts
connected with the present sanitary condition
I of the city.
In doing so it is not our object to arraign
! the action of the constituted authorities, to
step between them and.their official duties, or
to.pass judgment upon the course they have
thought proper to pursue. We desire simply
to express our deliberate and honest convic?
tion as to the manner ot meeting the situation
in which the community finds itself unfortu?
nately placed, and to show by our action that
we are alive to the duty we owe to our fellow
cltizen8 who are making constant appeals for
-Information and advice. Our purpose is to
follow Truth wherever she may lead ; to affirm
only what can be substantiated; to announce
nothing calculated to deceive the most credu?
lous; to quiet unnecessary excitement and
alarm, but at the same time to put every citi?
zen in position to take such steps as he may
deem proper to subserve his interest and pro?
tect his life.
First, then, we announce that yellow fever
does prevail to a limited extent in the city.
The first case, as far as can be ascertained,
occurred as early as ?he 27th o? Joly. Since
that time there have-been noted, in all, per?
haps as manyas thirty-five cases. Out ot this
number nine have proved fatal; but, as in a
few instances, uncertainty existed in the
minds of the attending physicians as to the
true character of the disease, and in a few
others, for prudential reasons, the true name
was withheld. The mortuary certificates in
the possession of the registrar show less than
the entire number of deaths. The mortality,
however, even with this allowance, is exceed?
ingly small, and would seem to indicate a
mild form ol the disease.
Secondly, we are bappy to state that the
large majority of the cases have occurred in
one locality. This would seem. In the opinion
of some ol us, to furnish the assurance that cir?
cumscribed local influence alone have favored
the development or extension of the disease,
and that its area may continue restricted.
Third. The period of time that has elapsed
since the report of the first case declares a
character of disease not disposed to extend
rapidly or widely.
Fourth. There are differences ot opinion
amongst ourselves as to the probable exten?
sion of the disease in an epidemic form. To
the panic-stricken, however, we would Bay:
Leave the city, if you can, at your earliest
convenience, for fright is a strong predisposing
cause ol disease. To the large mass of our
fellow-citizens, whose interests are Identified
with ours and with the city, we would advise a
patient walting for further developments, un?
less residing in an Infected locality, and in the
meantime an avoidance of any excess or un?
Let each and every one, without comment?
ing or animadverting upon the action of the
powers that be, who in his opinion may have
by sins ol omission or commission invited the
pestilence, use his best energies to carry out,
under proper direction, those sanitary meas?
ures of known value in staying the ravages of
disease, that In some form or other, under the
mysterious workings of an overruling Provi?
dence, is at times des tined to visit every com?

CRUMBS.-Major John H. Hughes, Of Edge-1

Unseemly disturbances In the neighborhood
of St. Philip's Church, in Church street, are
becoming a nightly occurrence.
The residence of Lieutenant-Governor Ban
slex was plundered cn Wednesday morning of
three coats and"two vests.
THE WOUNDED BOT.-The email colored boy,
named-Crumb, who was run over on
Thursday by one o? the steam engines, ls do?
ing as well as could be expected. He was
much more seriously injured than at first sup-1
posed, and on examination the Burgeon found
the boy's leg broken in two places, and his
thigh Tri one. It is probable that he will re?
cover. _ :
STEALING HARNESS.-Francis Brown was
arrested yesterday afternoon by the detectives
sharged with stealing a Bet of harnees from
Ur. Magwood. Francis had hired a gray mule
"rom Mr. Magwood for a day's work, and the
hirer missing the harness charged Francis with
stealing.it- The latter says the mule never had
erny harness on when he hired lt, and denies
the theft. He IB held for examination.
TARGET EXCURSION.-The Comet Light In?
fantry will celebrate their second anniversary
on Monday by a target excursion to Scanlan
vllle, formerly Remley's Point. The company
will be escorted on this occasion by the At?
tucks Light Infantry, and have chartered a
steamer to take them to the proposed ground
on Wando River. The boat will leave Hamlin
k Fairchild's wharl at 8 o'clock.
BOAT RAGE.-The lovers of this exciting
Boort will have another opportunity of wit?
nessing a sharp contest between fonr .four
oared boats, which will take place this after?
noon over the usual course. The distance run
will be one mile, the boats starting off the
mouth of Wappoo Cut and coming in opposite
the Bathing House. The following boats will
participate: The Bondel, Petrel, Tub and

FIRE.-A small excitement prevailed yester?
day morning in the upper part of King street,
caused by the breaking out, at about 10 o'clock,
of a fire In a wooden kitchen in the rear of I
Mrs. Morton's premises, on the east side of |
King street, between John and Ann. The
neighbors rallied quickly to the spot, and by
their efforts the flames were extinguished, with
no other damage than the burning of a few
pieces o? clothing and a part ot the weather?
boarding o? the kitchen. The origin of the
fire was an accident, and the engines were not
ACCIDENT.-Last evening, about 7 o'clock,
the Rev. Dr. Bermingham, while in the act of |
crossing Broad street, at the corner of Friend,
was struck by a carriage which was driven
rapidly around the corner and knocked pros?
trate on the pavement. ' He was quickly taken
up, in a senseless condition, by some gentle?
men who were near by, and carried to a neigh?
boring house, where every attention was
afforded him. In a lew moments be recover?
ed, and at last accounts was doing well, hav?
ing received no serious injuries beyond a few
ROUTING THE PIG-PENS.-The strict measures
which are being taken to carry out the sani?
tary ordinances ol the city resulted yesterday
in the bringing to light several nuisances in
the shape of hog-pens, which the infatuated
owners were keeping up in defiance of all
cleanliness and law. C. Jacobia, white, resid?
ing at No. 107 Spring street, was found to have
a thriving collection of nine hogs on his pre?
mises, which were kept in the UBual style.
Next door to this lot lived Isaac Morgan, col?
ored, who also owned up to the possession of
a fine pair of the filthy animals. On the pre?
mises o? B. Mitchell, In President street, two
porcine pets were discovered enjoying their
otium cum dignilate in the back lot. The own?
ers were severally reported, and the cases hav?
ing been brought up for examination beiore
the Mayor yesterday morning, they were fined
one dollar for each animal, and their prompt
Total Wreck of the Schooner William
B. Mann-A Spanish Bark Dis?
mantled-A Light Ship Capsized.
Accounts continue to be received of the
damage to shipping along the Georgia and
Florida coasts by the recent gale.
The schooner William B. Mann, Irom Jack?
sonville to Philadelphia, loaded with lumber,
encountered the gale on the 19th Instant at
Frying Pan Shoals, and was wrecked and
foundered, the officers and crew being fortu?
nately saved by the steamship San Salvador.
From Saturday, the 19th, until Monday morn?
ing, the fated vessel was at the mercy of the el?
ements, the sea breaking over her, sweeping
the decks, carrying away both masts, and ca?
reening her over to the starboard Bide, while
the crew took to the main rigging. The vessel
then righting, it was found that the poop
deck, cabin and a midship house, and all the
stores and water were gor:*:. The unfortunate
company lay on the wreck until Tuesday after?
noon, with nothing to eat and with only such
water to drink as they could catch in their
hats, when they were seen by the steamer
San Salvador, rescued from their dreadful po?
sition, and brought te Savannah. The schooner
doubtless foundered soon after her abandon?
ment. She was of 226 tons burden and cost
$16,000. Her cargo consisted of 135,000 feet of
lumber, consigned to R. H. Deming, of Phila?
delphia, and valued at $4000.
AK UNKNOWN BARK DISABLED.
On the 22d Instant Captain Falrclotn, oi the
steamship Montgomery, sighted a Spanish
bark, in lat. 32.53, long. 78.20, with signals of
distress flying. Her mainmast with every?
thing attached was gone by the deck; her
mizzen topmast and spanker also gone; her
fore-topmast gone by the cap, with the fore
yard and top; her Jibboon was broken off, and
she was apparently In ballast. She wished to
be towed Into a harbor, and Captain Fair
cloth succeeded In getting a hawBer from her,
and towed her. into Tybee bar, where the haw?
ser broke, and she was left to Ball Into the
harbor. Her name was not ascertained.
TTBEE LIGHTHOUSE BOAT.
Last Thursday night the Tybee lighthouse
boat, containing Mr. Egan, the keeper of the
lighthouse, and his two eons, while going
from Cockspur Island to the Osyter Bed light,
was capsized, and Thomas Egan, assistant
keeper, and oldest son of Mr. Egan, was
drowned. Mr. Egan and the other son were
picked np Thursday morning, the former be?
ing slightly Injured in the breast.
THE TRIAL JUSTICE WAR.-James Nash, a
sailor, was arrested a few days ago for deser?
tion from the schooner Edie Walters*, and after
an examination before Trial Justice Levy,
where he admitted that he was an articled
seamail and had deserted, he was turned
over to the captain of the schooner. Before
this was done, however, Nash took out a war?
rant before Trial Justice Brennan, charging
the captain with attempting to draw a revolver
on him prior to bis arrest, and attempting to
shoot bim, which he was prevented from
doing by the other officers. The captain was
held to bail in the sum ol $1000 to keep the
peace. In addition to this, a writ of Tiabeas
corpus baa been sued out by the friends of Nash,
who claims to be a British subject, and the
case will be Investigated befo* i Trial Justices
Magrath and Brennan this morning. The ob?
ject of the Investigation is to And out if Nash
bas regularly signed his articles, and whether
he should be delivered up to the captain of
the schooner/Trial Justice Levy, before whom
the case has been alreaby examined, thinks
this has been already decided, and disputes
the jurisdiction of the lipar nobile." The
matter created considerable excitement yes?
terday alternoon-a lively discussion followed
among the detectives and trial justices.
PUMPING OCT.-Under the energetic super?
intendence of Major E. Willis, this precaution?
ary measure ls rapidly progressing, and but
little now remains to be done. The cellars
generally are clear of water, and the only ugly
looking places which will need attention are
Marsh street, the lower part of Laurens street,
and Cromwell's court, running back of th? jail
to Smith street. Three engines were yester?
day at work on the old gas well, which con?
tains an Immense amount of water over twen?
ty-six feet deep. This has been reduced over
four feet, and it will be necessary to carry it
much lower. The most extensive job yetis
the pumping out of the South Carolina Freight
Depot in Mary street Three engines had this
in charge yesterday, and lt will be thoroughly
finished to-day. The firemen have been work?
ing against this new element with a will, and
lu the contest evince all the ardor they are ac?
customed to display against their old enemy.
Their behavior deserves the commendation of
every one who has the interest of our old city

After paying the expenses of the enterprise and making the distribution of the Girts, the balance
of the proceeds arising from the sale of Tickets will be appropriated to the establishment of a
FREE LIBRARY IN LOUISVILLE, TO BE CALLED THE
PUBLIC LIBRARY OF KENTUCKY.
The Concert and Distribution will take place under the Immediate supervision of the Trustees
mentioned in the act of Incorporation.
The Trustees will be assisted by well known and eminent citizens of Kentucky, who have consent?
ed to be present at the Concert and to superintend the drawing and distribution of Gifts.
The holders of Tickets to which Gifts are awarded will be paid on presentan n of them or their
fraction, at the office In Louisville, the second day arter drawing, and every business day for Blx
months thereafter, and may be sent direct or through any Bank or Express Company for collection.
All orders accompanied by Drafts, Postofflce Money Orders, or Greenbacks, will be promptly attended
to and TicketB returned by mall, registered or expressed, as desired.
Tickets are like Greenbacks-good only to the holder.
Bayers will note that there are only One Hundred Thousand Tickets, Instead of Two Hundred
Thousand, as In the San Francisco Gift Concert, and that there la $50,000 more distributed. I sold
that and made the awards in four months and paid $448.000 to tlcset-holders from November 2d to
16tb, 1810, aod turned over $12,000 to the Secretary due tickets not presented.
It will be particularly noticed that it ls a matter of impossibility for any one to knew what num?
bers draw gifts, as it is not known what the gift of any number drawn from the first wheel will be
until the sealed box, with amount of the gift plainly printed, ls taken from the other wheel and open?
ed In foll view of the audience, therefore the larger gifts may not come oat until towards the last, or
in the middle of the drawing. The $100,000 girt in the ?fan Francisco Gift Concert, under the manage?
ment of 0. R. PETERS, was the 200th number drawn, and was awarded and paid to a gentleman in
New Orleans. 721 Gifts is all that can be drawn m one day.
The Numbers and Gifts are drawn by blind children from 8 to 14 years of age.
The Drawing will be extensively published, and parties ordering Tickets will have printed lists
sent them. Parties forming Globs and desiring information will please address this office.
49- ll TICKETS FOR $100; 28 TICKETS, $255; ?6 TICKETS, $530; 113 TICKETS, $1000.-?
The undersigned, late principal business manager of the very successful Mercantile Library Gift
Concert at San Francisco, Cal., has been appointed Agent and Manager of the Gift Concert In aid of
the Public Library of Kentucky.
The Drawing will take place In public, and everything will be done to satisfy buyers of tickets that
their interests will be as wt ll protected as If they personally superintended the entire affair.
MANNER OF DRAWING.

leather tags. The other wheel will oontaln 721 boxes, each containing a girt. One tag or number

contain a gift, neatly printed and sealed up. and the gift so drawn from the second wheel will be the
