THROUGH TRAVEL NORTH.-AS a statement
has been put forth that persons from Charles?
ton will be subjected to inconvenience and de?
lay at Washington, we have been requested to
state that such Is not the case-the trains
passing around Wilmington, and not through
that city. The only change made by recent
events is that cars are changed at Florence,
and that the sleeping cars have been taken
irom the line.
THE CROPS.-We make the following extract
from a letter received by a prominent factor
agetfcouae In this city :
ORANGEBURG, August 25.
We still continue to have a great dual of
rain, but not so violent. The rains prior have
been heavy, accompanied with high winds, al?
most gales, and have done a large amount of
damage to our crops. The writer now esti?
mates, from information gathered, it will af?
fect us fully one-third from the June and July
prospects. We do not feel disposed to com?
plain, but a great deal of damage Is done..
THE SCHOONER Wk. B. MANN_The revenue
cutter Racer, Captain Sands, took charge of
|&e schooner Wm. B. Mann, previously report?
ed water-logged off EdiBto on Thursday at 2 P.
M., and drifted her np to Brick Yard Creek
and chartered the tug Ida to tow her through
to Beaufort, S. C. Her hold ls full of lumber;
spars and sails gone; standing rigging good.
The deck is somewhat broken by the centre
board being forced through it. The officers
and men ol the Racer were employed two
days in securing her.
TBS RICE _gpp.-The New York Dally Bul.
le tin cf Saturday, August 25, says :
The Bteamer fames Adger .brought to
Messrs. Dan Talmage'o Sons, of thlB city, the
first shipment - of the "new crop" Carolina
rice. The parcel was grown on the A g he poo
River. ?In pr "of arrival it ls about the same
as laet year, v .ch was fully three weeks in
advance'of average season. It is bricht and
Eearly in appearance, though considerably
roken, as 1B common, with new rice, its sou
condition rendering i Hm possible to dress with?
out breaking, as the milling of the body bf the
crop is not regularly commenced until the lat?
te t part of September or the first ol October.
We learn from Messrs. Taimage's Sonsthat
the Cooper, Ashepoo, Santee and Savannah
Rivers will show Increased production, and
Irom Georgetown a very much larger yield
than last year ls looked for. Everything has
been favorable for the planter. Even the
drought in the latter part of July and 1st of
the present month has, by subsequent rains,
been of great and lasting advantage. The
harvesting bas commenced, and the results
promise to yield up to the greatest anticipae
Hons of the planters unless some untoward
event should occur, as heavy rains or high
winda As to the general quality of the year's
crop, it Is expected that with the better car
which ls bestowed from year to year propor?
tionate improvement will be noted.
r THE TRIAL JUSTICE WAR.
"Let TJi Have Peace"-Startling Devel?
The arrest of the sailor Jamen Nash, on the
charge of desertion from the schooner Edle
Waitera, and the subsequent proceedings in hie
case, have thrown the fraternity of. trial jus?
tices into a state of excitement which, on the
homeopathic principle, may protect them from
the ravages of lever. The prisoner, as already
reported In THE NEWS, was arrested on a war?
rant issued by Trial Justice Levy, and was
about to be turned over to his captain, when
his counsel sued out a writ of Tutbeas corpus
and brought him before Trial Jusstlces Bren?
nan and Magrath, on the ground that he was
illegally held by a trial justice, and had with?
out a trial been ordered aboard the vessel from
which, it was asserted, he bod deserted. The
hearing took place on Saturday morning.and af?
ter a cl ose Investigation the J us tl ce s decided that
the prisoner should have a trial on the origi?
nal charge?, and referred him back to Trial Jus?
tice Levy for trial.
In the meantime, Nash, whose sole object
is to avoid going to sea, had acknowledged to
the captain of the vessel that he was approach?
ed by Lieutenant Philippy, of the detective
force, who was in his favor, and was told by
him that li he wanted to get off from going to
sea, if the trial went against him, he must as?
sault some one and beat him badly-the
scheme being that, as soon as this was done,
Nash would be arrested, taken before a trial
justice, and, not being able to give bail, be
committed to Jail to await bis trial at the Court
of General Sessions. By the time the court
met the schooner would be far away, and Nash
would have accomplished his object of staying
At five o'clock, the hour appointed, the trial
came off before Trial Justice Levy, Trial
Justice Brennan and Mackey being present to
assist. The prisoner's counsel was not pres?
ent. The evidence showed that Nash was an
articled seaman, had deserted irom the schoon- ?
er; and, further, that the captain, of. whom he
seemed to be In great fear, and with whom he
had sailed for over two years, had never ill
treated him. In view of this, the prisoner was
Ordered to be committed to jail to await the
requisition of the captain on sailing; The con?
stable then proceeded to conduct the prisoner
to Jail. *
Mindful of the advice of his wily friend,
Nash began to look around for some subject
upon which he could operate to advantage be?
fore lils incarceration. In the door of the
trial justice's office, and with his back turned,
stood the bulky form of the lieutenant him?
self, and Nash, seizing the propitious moment,
and not recognizing his friend, applied bis
heavy brogan to the most inviting spot, with
a vigor which sent tho chief of detectives fly?
ing into the street. This unexpected denoue?
ment created considerable excitement, until
the confession of Nash as to bis being Insti?
gated to beat some one, turned the surprise
into a hearty laugh at the way In which the
lieutenant's advice had recoiled upon his own
A stricter watch being maintained on bis
movements on the way, Nash was safely lodg?
ed in jail. The rest ot the programme then
began. Lieutenant PhUlppy, apparently en?
raged at the assault upon his person and dig?
nity; took ont a warrant from Trial Justice
Schroder against Nash for an unprovoked as?
sault, and Nash ls now in jail under his com?
mitment. The- effect of this is to add one
more trial justice to the-disputants, and to
keep Nash in Jail notwithstanding the requisi?
tion of'the captain. The latter is determined
to maintain his rights, and it is hard te say
how the matter will end.
THE HEALTH OF THE CUT.
The Yellow Fever Reports ana th*
Effect-Progresa of the Disease-Sai
tary Pr?cautions-Thc Great Radi?
Higelra-'?Devil Take the H i nd mo.
-TlicToM Shoulder from our IVelg
bora- A Clean Bill of Health for t
- To unaccustomed ears there is somethi
so awe-inspiring in the very name of Yelli
Fever that it ls not surprising that the st?
gers within our gates have been considera!
alarmed, some of them having moved bag a
baggage upon the first wild reports that ie*
had made its appearance. There was a reas
for this demoralization; and those who ha
homes elsewhere, or who have no duties
discharge in Charleston, were, perhaps, rig
if they did not delay in winging their flight
the pine-lands of Summerville, the magnifi?e
distances of Columbia, or the bustling cities
the North and West. Self-preservation ls tl
I first law ot nature, and the refugees had i
idea of being caught napping. And yet, whi
there ls abundant reason for care ai
precaution, there is no cause for mo
tal alarm. The disease, if spreading
all, 1B moving with a slowness whit
contrasts auspiciously with the usual rapidl
of Its strides. The number ol new cases ls 1
significant, and the deaths, from all cause
are below the average. This is encouraging
and should serve to disabuse the timid ones <
the idea that, because there is fever in lt
city, half the resident population are doom?
to die. A few days ago lt was reported in Ai
gusta that Charleston had hardly enoug
healthy inhabitants to nurse the Bick and bui
the dead. This, as we know, was a fearfi
exaggeration, considering that from the bi
? ginning, more than a month ago, we have ha
less than a dozen deaths by fever; but the tei
dency of the alarmed mind is to magnify tb
danger a hundred-fold, if only as an excus
for its own fears, and this disposition shoul
be carefully guarded against. At this momer
the situation is grave, but there ls still rooi
for the hope that the disease will not be wid<
spread, and that lt will not become a serlon
PROGRESS OF THE DISEASE.
Since the publication of the report of tb
Medical Society, dated Friday noon, a few ne
cases of yellow fever have been reported t
the health officer, and one or two deaths. A
ls usual at such times, almost every' case c
illness, from any cause whatever, ls; looke
upon with suspicion, if not with alarm. Th!
disposition to be frightened, however, we ar
glad to see, ls diminishing, and the pubil
mind is in a fair way, we think, to look calm
ly and hopefully even at the visitation, am
manfully frown down all unnecessary scare
and all disposition to exaggeration.
Every resident of Charleston who is not ac
climatized, or who is ".feely to have lost his ac
climatiz itlon, should be careful to avoid, a
! far as possible, all occasions of danger. Th<
genera^ rules may be summed up thus :
1. Keep your lot clean, and make a libera
use of disinfectants.
2. Avoid the night air, and stay withii
doors after sunset When 'obliged to go out a
night, use an umbrella.
3. Be temperate in eating and drinking, par
tlcularly the latter.
4. Be cleanly In your habits. Cold watet
5. As Boon as you feel unwell. Bend for joui
physician. The usual symptoms of fever are
An acute pain in the head, of the kind knowr
as Bick headache; a Be vere pain in the back; a
chill, such as the Chickahomlny swamps gav?
the bare-footed boys in war times. When yoi
have the chill, or the back-ache or the head?
ache, send io: the physician post-haste. Bettei
cry Wolf than be too late In Bounding the
6. Keep cool.
Any person who iollows these general rules
stands a good chance of escaping from the
clutches of fever. For thia fever, with earl j
medical attendance and good nuning, is not ai
fatal as sm al l-pox,or cholera,or "country fever*
or other diseases which might be named. Thc
early cases are the worst, because the Bick, un?
conscious of the gravity of the case, are tardy lc
taking the proper remedies, but, unless the
disease is of a peculiarly malignant type, the
actual mortality, where proper care ls taken,
is extremely small.
THE RADICAL OFFICIALS.
The alarm of sickness has sh own the charac?
ter of most of the Fidlcal officials in all their
native deformity. The Mayor "sticks" for the
piesent, but with that exception nearly the
whole covey have winged their flight North?
ward; General Gurney, the county treasurer,
1B away, and the duties of his responsible office
are discharged by Inexperienced subordinates.
Sh erlff Mack ey has not Bbown his bead for some
weeks, but he is reported to be Bick in New
York. The coroner, Mr. Taft, slipped off some
time ago, and makes no sUn of returning.
But worst of all ls the case of Captain Jenks,
tbe city Inspector. This official has charge of
the streets. It is his duty to keep the city
Clean and wholesome. By neglecting this
work, while "grinding axes" for Mayor Pills?
bury, he allowed Charleston to become indes?
cribably filthy. Upon his shoulders rests the
main responsibility for that wanton disregard
of the plainest sanitary ruies which brought
the fever upon us. Immediately after the
election he went to the North, where he stays.
As for the city he ?eaves her, ?lke a cast?
off mistress, to perish from the disease which
he has given her. These Badicai officials are
fine-weather blrd9. They will draw their pay
while the sun shines, but they flee like the
wind at the first note of danger. What do the
colored voters who (In fact) elected these men
to office, think of their conduct now ? For dis?
ease ls no respecter of persons. The blacks
as well as the whites must suffer from the
criminal carelessness of the Radical office?
holders. Shall not this be remembered al the
next election day ?
THE TlDLS'GS ABROAD.
In Augusta. Savannah and Wilmington the
tidings that tbe fever was in Charleston ere
,ated a wild excitement.
Augusta bas establlBhed^a rigid quarantine,
and all the cars for that city, coming from
Charleston, are opened and ventilated before
they enter the corporate limits. A meeting of
citizens is to be held this morning "for the
purpose of considering what action, if any, the
City Council should be recommended to take
with regard to the yellow fever in Charleston,
and the intercourse between that city and
this." The Constitutionalist suggests mat Au?
gusta follow the example of Wilmington, and
bar out all persons coming from Charleston.
The city is in a cleanly condition, and a gene?
ral cleaning up goes on.
' Savannah has put on her armor of proof.
We understand that the trains for Savannah
Irom Charleston, are stopped at Monteith
'Station, where the passengers are subjected to
the inspection of a Savannah physician before
the train is allowed to proceed.
Wilmington is in a fever of excitement. The
through cars between Charleston and that city
are taken off, and the luxurious Bleeping cars
are discontinued. On Saturday the authorities
gave notice that no person coming from
Charleston would be allowed to enter Wil?
mington, and that any person from Wilming?
ton who might go to Charleston would not be
allowed to re-enter Wilmington until the fever
1 was at an encl. Under the circumstance?, there
will not be much visiting between the two
cities for Borne weeks to come. Prayers were
offered up in the churches yesterday that the
city might be spared the ravages of the fever.
This was done at the request of the Mayor.
The Journal promises to give its readers all
the newe, and hopes that there will be no
panic. - , .
THE STEAMSHIP LISES.
All sorts of rumors were flying about on
Saturday. The Manhattan which did not sail,
as appointed, on account or the heavy sea on
the bar, was reported to be detained by the
port physician. There was, of course, no truth
in this wild statement. The city registrar and
port physician, Dr. Robert Lebby, does not
consider the fever to be epidemic, and we un?
derstand that the Manhattan-the passengers
ind ship having been carfully examined
jailed yesterday with a clean bill of health.
A DESTRUCTIVE FIRE.
two Stores Destroyed and One Serious?
Between half-past 10 and ll o'clock Satur?
day night, a fire broke out on the west side of
Sleeting treet, three doors below Hasel, which
resulted in the total destruction of the two fine
buildings owned by Messrs. Jennings, Thom
Jason & Co., and then occupied by Mr. J. C.
tfadseu as a tobacco store, and by Mr. Leng
aick as a fancy goods and notion establish
nent. The fire originated in the back part of
Madsen's store, and owing to the inflammable
iature of the stock, was weil under way when
:he engines arrived. The flames then com?
municated to the adjoining store of Mr. Leng
alck, and, being fed by light and inflammable
articles composing the stock, both buildings
vere Boon enveloped in a tremendous
?laze. The engines, although they had been
tt work all day on the streets, pumping
jut, were worked with vigor and alacrity, and
l>y their efforts the fire was confined to the
:wo buildings already named. These, with
the stock contained in them, were totally de?
stroyed. The wholesale shoe store of Messrs.
E. B. Stoddard di Co., adjoining Mads en's cigar
store on the north, was also considerably dam?
aged by the heat. It was broken into, to
afford a stand from which the streams from
the engines could be brought to play upon
the fire, and the water thrown into lt to pre?
vent its taking fire did much damage to the
stock. The insurance, as far as we have been
able to learn, is as follows:
E. B. Stoddard 4 Co., building Insured for
(5000 In the Home Insurance Company, of
New York, Major Hutson Lee, agent. Stock
Insured for $25,000 in the Germania, Colburn
k Howell, agents; the North British Mercan?
tile, E. B. Sebring & Co, agents; and the
Georgia Home Insurance Company, Hutson
C. A. Lengnick, fancy goods, notions, Ac.
Stock, total loss. Insured for $5000 in Mr. A.
L. Tobias's agency.
J. C. Madsen, cigars and tobacco, total loss,
insured forlGOOO in the" agency of Messrs.
Barenel <fc Huger.
The building In which the two last mention?
ed stores were. established was owned by
Messrs. Jennings, Tomlloson & Co., and was
Insured for $5000. Ol this, there were $2000,
upon the store occupied by Mr. Lengnlck, in
the London, Liverpool and Globe Insurance
Company, Lowndes & Co., agents.
In addition to his stock, Mr. MadHen had
(100 in cash in his money drawer, which was
lost with the rest. The origin of the fire is a
mystery. It certainly began in the back part
of Mr. Madsen's store, but that gentleman says
that he shut up at 10 o'clock, and had no fire
on the premises. The gas jet was in the iront
of the store.
During the confusion the usual hangers-on
were present, on the lookout for an opportu?
nity of plundering, and much stealing went
on. Three colored youths, named Thomas
Perry, Prince Johnson and George Bryan,
were detected In the act ol making their es?
cape with a. lot of fine boots, shoes, straw
hats and fancy goods, and having been
turned over to a policeman, were taken with
their plunder to the Guardhouse. They will
have a hearing before the Mayor this morning.
EARRINGS FOR SALE.-Bichard Burben, a
colored man, was arrested on Saturday even?

stolen a pair of gold earrings, which he was

ing them for sale to get the money to bu; pro?
visions with. He is held for examination. .

Dr. Lebby for throwing offal in a lot in Smith
street, had the bearing of his case deferred

BLOODY AFFRAT.-Saturday evening, about
half-past seven o'clock, two young men,
Kelly and George Burke, the latter a consta?
ble of one ol our numerous trial justices, be?
came engaged la an altercation, which ended
in a sharp quarrel. Burke put his hand to his
back as if to draw a weapon, when Kelly told
him if he was a man they would settle lt by a
fair fight. The two then went in. when Kelly
knocked down his antagonist, and was about
to give him a good beating when Burke drew
a large pocketknife and began to cut at Kelly.
The bystanders interfered, but not before Kelly
had received several severe cuts. The wound?
ed man, bleeding fearfully, was taken into
Dr. Raoul's drug store, where his wounds were
dressed by the doctor, assisted by Dr. T. S
Thomson. He was found to have received
one Btab in the chest, one a few inches lower,
one In the arm. aud four in his back. The
wounds are severe, but are not considered
fatal. The wounded mau was afterwards taken
to his home, and when last heard from was

on Saturday afternoon, a colored woman
named Rosanna Gaillard, twenty-Bix years of
age, dropped dead suddenly In Judith street.
She had been out visiting, and was returning
home with her child in her arms, when she
was seen to fall forward on her face on the
sidewalk. Some men near by ran lo her as?
sistance, but she was dead before they cculd
pick her up. The coroner having been noti?
fied, an inquest was heid over the body. A
post-mortem examination having been held,
it was found that her liver had been disturbed
to nearly three times its natural size, and the
