LUXURIES OF THE SEASON.-Tho tempting
array of eatables and drinkables offered to the
public palatelby Messrs. W. H. Chafee A Co.,
In thlB morning's NEWS, proves that these
eminent caterers comprehend the needs of
the market, and are equal to the demand.
With a largely increased stock and an earnest
desire to please, they cannot fall to secure a
generous custom. They now enjoy a busi?
ness prestige accorded to few, and all who
have dealings with the Arm wish that "their
days may be long in th? laud."

making.the gateway Impassable by any ve?
hicle. We are Informed that the whole work
should have been done in a day or two. What

AFTER THE PIGS.-In Charleston-'the time
for keeping pigs in the back yard ls past, and
the vigilant officer in charge of this depart?
ment unearthed, on Saturday last, numbers Ol
these contented animals in their filthy retreats.
Under a dwelling house ls the place where
pigs may be secured from the Incursions ol
pork-lovIn~ depredators, and the basements
ar$, acco. jgly,. always looked, after, and'
geneially with success. Robert Horlbeck, C.
Geddes, Jerry Gray and V. Gadsden, colored,
and J. Lorenzo and N. Jones, white,were up be?
fore the Mayor yesterday for keeping pigs, and
were ordered to remove iHe offensive beasts'
t forthwith. Most ol the Inspected premises
had a pair of porkers; several had five, and
one had as many as nine.
GIVE A Doo A BAD NAM E.-Henry Flnckney,
alias Nassau Grant, a colored youth, arrested
by tho.* detectives a few days ago for vagrancy
and on suspicion of larceny, was brought be?
fore Trial Justice Magrath and sentenced to
Sf?nd a term o? thirty days In Sheriff Mackey's
hotel. Henry ls an old offender, and bears a
high character among the detectives for hardi
hood and shrewdness in his thieving opera?
tions. A few days ago he was Been loafing
around the streets without any employment
or place of residence, and he was forthwith
arrested on suspicion. Not being eligible for
conviction as a thief, he was tried on the in?
definite charge of vagrancy and sentenced as
above. It wili be refreshing for him to know
that, though the proprietor is absent, the
hotel ls still conducted in the good old style.
WHT IS THIS THUS *-Thomas Perry,
Joseph Bryant, Morris M ash oe and. Jacob
Smith, lour youths, arrested on the charge
of stealing and plundering at the late
fire in Meeting street, were brought before the
Mayor yesterday morning and discharged af?
ter a hearing. These boys were captured at
the fire, and In almost every instance the evi?
dence of their guilt, such as boots, shoes,
straw bats, Ac, just taken from the burning
stores, were found in their possession. Many
of these fires, it is suspected, are the work of
incendiaries, who, during the confusion, find
abundant opportunities for plunder, and we
?re compelled to regard the discharge ol the
depredators, when they are caught In the act,
as a tacit encouragement of the offence. The
crop or thieves In Charleston ls luxuriant
tnougb, and needs no cultivation.
OCR SANITARY CONDITION.
An Encouraging Exhibit-Scarcity of
New Cuses of Fever-Precautions of
the Authorities-A General and Rigo?
rous Inspection and Cleaning Up
The Military Moving Off and thc Cus?
tomhouse to Close, die, &c*
As the last days of August glide by and Tel
low Jack, an unwelcome visitant under any
circumstances, shows no disposition to lay a
heavy hand on this community, the confidence
and good spirits of our people, which were
rudely Bhaken last week, are becoming re-es?
tablished. After careful inquiry, we find that
the progress of the fever-if progress it can be
called-has been BO slight since our last Issue
as to afford no reasonable ground for alarm;
and the feeling is gaining ground that we shall,
after all, escape an epidemic.
A Work Well Done.
The work of pumping out the various low
places and cellars which were flowed by the
late rains bas been prosecuted with such ener?
gy that but little now remains for the fire en?
gines to do in this line. But six or seven ap?
plications were made to Major V '.Us yester?
day for the assistance of the engines, whereas
on previous days forty or fifty were common.
These have been attended to with prompt?
ness. The city is now quite free from stag?
nant pools, and, with a liberal and energetic
use of disinfectants by the authorities, we may
calmly await the issue.
At 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon, in response
to a cali from Dr. Le boy, the eily registrar,
a number of leading citizens, representing the
several ward?, met in the Council Chamber to
confer and co-operate with the authorities as
to the measures proper lo be adopted for the
preservation of the health of Charleston.
Besides Mayor Pillsbury and Dr. Lebby, the
following gentlemen were present: Messrs.
John Hanckel, J. H. Steinmeyer, Henry Bisch?
off, L. D. Mowry, 0. A. Bowen, George 8.
Hacker and T. G. Barker. After a full and
free discussion, it was determined that the
gentlemen named should at once proceed,
under authority fro m the Mayor, to organize a
thorough and systematic sanitary inspector of
their respective wards. For this purpose they
are authorized and directed, in the capacity ol
assistant health officers, to designate such a
number ol residents of each ward, as In their
Judgment will be sufficient, to constitute a
ward committee of Inspection, who shall di?
vide their ward into sub-districts, and make a
personal examination of the premises of each
householder therein, and promptly report to
the proper officers every lot that shall seem to
them to require either cleansing, draining or
Dr. Lebby and the Mayor assured the gen?
tlemen present that. In the discbarge ol their
new and important duties, they might rely
npon the earnest and willing advice and sup?
port of the city physicians, and that no time
would be lost by the health and police depart?
ments in following up the results of the In?
vestigation, and carrying out such suggestions
as they might offer, to the end that the whole
city may as speedily as possible be placed in a
perfectly clean and wholesome condition.
Dr. Lebby also announced the arrangements
that had been made for the distribution of dis?
infectants. These may be obtained by the citi?
zens at the upper and lower Guardhouses, and
at the City Hospital, in the proportions of three
pounds of lime and five pounds of copperas to
each dwelling. He also recommended that in
using copperas, it should be dissolved In about
tea tl mes i ls volume of bolling water, and then
poured hot into the sinks, Ac. After some
further informal consultation, the conference
separated with a view ol beginning the work
of organization Immediately. Tbe necessity
for an Inspection, to be conducted In this man?
ner by private citizens, affords a strange and
severe commentary upon the criminal negli?
gence and equally criminal absence lrom lils
post?t this season of the individual who is
just now'disporiing himself somewhere down
East, and enjoying ih.j liberal pay and perquis?
ites of city Inspector of Charleston.
The Howard Association.
In response to a published call, a meeting of
citizens was held yesterday in the hall of the
Chamber of Commerce, for the purpose of re.
organizing the Howard Association, which In
sickly seasons accomplishes a vast amount of
good. AB the number o? fever cases in the city
ia exceedingly small, there ls no urgent de?
mand for the BerviceB of the body, buttt was
thought best, as a purely precautionary meas?
ure,'to put tho association in working order.
- Captain S. Y. Tupper, president of the Cham
ber of Commerce, called the meeting to ord or.
and, after explaining the nature of the busi?
ness to be done, moved that Colonel James F,
Taylor-a veteran in the charitable work-take
the chair. Colonel Taylor briefly pointed out
the prudential reasons In favor of resuscitat?
ing the association, which had held no meet?
ing fdr thirteen years; and, at the close bf his
remarks, Dr. George S. Pelzer, the former sec?
retary or the association, submitted the follow?
ing resolutions, which were adopted:
Resolved, That Inasmuch as thirteen years
have elapsed since the last meeting of the
Howard Association, of Charleston, was held,
the Bald association be reorganized, In order to
afford prompt and efficient relief, should cir?
cumstances require lt.
Resolved, That for the above purpose a com?
mittee of five be appointed by the chairman ol
this meeting to nominate officers, and report
at an adjourned meeting,to be held on to-mor?
row, Tuesday, thc 79eli instant, at 12 o'clock
M., at thts place. . .
The chair appointed the committee as fol?
lows: Messrs. George 8. Pelzer, 8. Y. Tupper,
George H. Monett, T. Y. Simons and E. WIIUB.
.In the course ol the meeting, it was made
known that the available means of the asso?
ciation amount to the handsome sum of two
Withdrawal or the United States Troops
. The two companies of light artillery, hith?
erto stationed at--the Citadel, yesterday with?
drew to Summerville, In the neighborhood of
which town they are encamped, and will re?
main until October. The removal was effected
in obedience to orders received Tuesday from
General Terry, commanding the Department
of the South, In Louisville, Kentucky, to the
effect that lt any cases ot yellow fever should
occur,' the officer In command should, in his
.discretion, remove the troops without await?
ing further orders. At C o'clock in the morn?
ing, Company A, of the Third Regiment Uni?
ted States Light Artillery, fell In at the Citadel
Green, and with thelr-pieces took up their line
of march by the State Road for Summerville.
Later '.n the day, Company I, who now act as
heavy Infantry, not being furnished with
horses, marched up to the South Carolina
Railroad Depot and took the accommodation
train at 2.45 P. M. for Summerville. The bag?
gage and tents of the two companies also went
along on this train. The colonel, with the
staff officers and band, have also removed,
and will make their headquarters in the same
town. Lieutenant Smith, the quartermaster,
and three men have been left in charge of the
Citadel, where the four guns of Company I are
also kept under shelter. The Citadel is silent
and deserted, and the neighborhood will miss
the stirring strains of the bugle, which wer*
wont to awake the echoes of the building at 5
o'clock in the morning.
The Alarm at the Customhouse.
A telegram from Washington brings the (we
doubt not) welcome tidings that the govern?
ment will authorize the suspension of duties
at the Customhouse until the danger has
blown over. The fact that the building is In
the most feverish quarter, together with the
circumstance that, the employees are mostly
strangers to our climate, would seem to ren?
der this but a prudent step.
FIRE.-The alarm of fire last night was
caused by the rekindling of the embers of the
late conflagration of Saturkay night, opposite
the Charleston Hotel, on Meeting street. It
resulted In no further damage, as ?t was
SHOOTING AFFRAY.-William Baker was
brought before Trial Justice Brennan yester?
day for preliminary examination, on the
charge of assault and battery with intent to
kill. The evidence as far as taken, goes to
show that Baker and Jacob Ricnardson got
into a quarrel on Saturday, duriDg which the
former fired a revolver at Richardson, but
missed him. Baker was admitted to bail to
appear this morning at 10 o'clock.
SCENE IN ELLIOTT STREET.-Yesterday after?
noon Joseph Bolsden, residing in the peaceful
locality known as Elliott street, returned to
bis bouse in a state of intoxication, and find?
ing nothing else upon which to vent his spleen,
pitched into his wife. Taking the unfortunate
woman by the hair,.the drunken brute admin?
istered several kicks on her breast, and struck
her repeatedly over the head. Her Bcreams of
pain and terror soon attracted a crowd to the
scene, and a policeman coming up arrested
the wife-beater. He was taken before Trial
Justice Magrath, and upon the affidavit of the
abused woman, was committed lor examina?
DEATH OF A YOUNO CHARLESTON MERCHANT.
Mr. O. D. Seymour, Jr., a partner of the well
known house of W. M. Bird & Co., died in this
city, after a short illness, and his funeral ser?
vices will be held this morning, at Trinity (M.
E.) Church. Mr. Seymour, though a compara?
tive stranger, had won many lriends, and bis
untimely death will cast a gloom over a large
circle. He was a native of Hartford, Conn.,
and connected with the Seymours of that
State, who have always ulled high positions in
the political world. Mr. Seymour had just re?
turned to this city from a visit North when
stricken with disease. He leaves a young wife
and lather and mother ta deplore bis loss.
MUTINY AND INSUBORDINATION.-Peter
Hanson, one of the sailors employed upon the
buoy-tender A la nt h us. attempted to de. ert
and leave the steamer yesterday afternoon,
when the captain interierred to prevent him.
He assaulted the captain, and struck bim
several severe blows, bruising his face and
person to Borne extent The bystanders in?
terposed, and Peter having been arrested, was
taken before Trial Justice Magrath for exami?
nation. This took place immediately, and
upon the evidence, the justice committed the
prisoner to jail, to await his trial before the
United States District Court on the charge of
desertion, mutiny, insubordination and assault
and battery upon the captain.

disorderly on King street, and afterwards
raising a disturbance in the Statlonbouse, for?
feited his deposit of five dollars by not appear?
ing belore the Mayor.
THE COMET LIGHT INFANTRY.-The second
anniversary parade ol this popular colored
company, Captain P. L. Miller, was appropri?
ately celebrated yesterday by a parade and
target excursion. Ou the parade through the
streets, the company was escorted by the At?
tucks Light Infantry, aud the two presented
a soldierly and creditable appearance. The
shooting at the target was conducted with
spirit and skill, aud the prizes were won as ,
First prize, gold medal, by Corporal A. C.

THE CASE OF NASH.
CHARLESTON, S. C., August 29.
"TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
In your issue of yesterday you state that
James Nash was Instigated by me to commit
an assault and battery upon myself, ld order
that I might, by arresting him, prevent his
departure In the ship to which, it 1B alleged,
he belongs. In this matter I beg leave to state
you have been mlslnlormed, although irom
the gross injustice done this poor man, I should
have heartily rejoiced bad he put lt In my
power to have BO detained him. But the poor
fellow now is lil, caused undoubtedly by bis
unlawful incarc?ration for four days lu a hot
and narrow cell. Therefore, no need ol the
instruments of law to effect a purpose which,
evidently. Heaven lniends.

15th. 1670, and turned over $12.000 to the Secretary due tickets not presented.
It will be particularly notice.1 that it is a matter of impossibility for any one to know what num?
bera draw gifts, as lt ls not known what the gift ol any number drawn from the first wheel wUl be
until the sealed box, with ammnt or the gift plainly printed, is taken from the other wheel and open?
ed In tull view of the audience, therefore the Urger gifts may not come out until towards the last, or

ment of 0. R. PETERS was the 200th number drawn, and was awarded and paid to a gentleman in
