AN ANCIENT 8EAL.-We were yesterday
shown a relic of the past, of which some
CbarleBtonlan may be able to iurnish the
origin and ase. It consists ol a round silver
seal or Btamp, bearing the motto, "Relpublicae
Australis Carolinas Tutela" around the edge,
and enclosing the Image of Justice, with the
sword and scale?; also a ploughman and a
ship, representing agriculture and commerce.
The seal belongs now to Hr. T. Waring Mikel),
to whom lt was bequeathed by an aunt. It
seems to have been once the stamp of some
society, and any information la regard to lt

THE RUSTIC AND THE SHARPERS_On Wed?
nesday evening a colored maa from the coun?
try came to the city, and having incautiously
displayed a roll of money which he had jost
received for some produce sold, he was Im?
mediately fastened o?oa by two youths, named
Thomas Parker and William Thomas. They
soon became very intimate with their rustic
acquaintance, and after a merry evening, the
latter, on the departure of his new friends,
found that bis pockets had been relieved of all
the money. His complaint to a policeman
was followed by toe speedy arrest of the two
youths, who were duly locked up in the Guard?
house. Alter an examination before the
Mayor, they were referred io a trial Justice for

A CONFISCATED PIG.-At a late hour on
Wednesday night a romantic young porker
was discovered la Rutledge avenue taking a
walk "a? fresco* down that fashionable thor
oughiare. His gutteral expressions of loter
nal satisfaction attracted the notice of a
nodding policeman, who immediately gave
ch ase. The pig did his best, but the issue of a
race between a fat hog and a leao pol ?cern an ls
by no means doubt ful, and the granter was
soon captured. The swinish prisoner was
locked up, and brought bet?re the Mayor yes?
terday morning. The case was a grave one.
Pigs In a pen, within the limits of the city,
were unsparingly fined, but what was to be
done with a pig who thus brayed the city au?
thorities and Intruded upon the surreptitious
nap of a leaden-eyed policeman ? After due
consideration the prisoner was declared to be
forfeited. The sentence is heavy, but the
prisoner awaits Its execution with epicurean
reeigaation. To whom he ls forfeited, and by
whom is he to be eaten, ls still a matter of
doubt. Bat lt is probable that the Almshouse
will be the recipient of his bloody carcass.

THE TRIAL JUSTICES IN A QUANDARY.-In
the dearth of business which at present pre?
vails among this fraternity the loll o wing point
of law was raised, and excited some argu?
ment, yesterday morning. Louis Walker,
colored, was committed to Jail, lo delaolt of
bail, a few weeks since, by Trial Justice
Mackey, on the charge of garotting and robbing
another yoong robber of $7 35. Yesterday his
friends procured sufficient sureties, and apon
their signing the boad the committing trial
Juative lamed an order upon the Jailor to re?
lease the prisoner. This order the latter offi?
cial refused to obey, under authority of an or?
der issued some months back by Judge Gro?
baa, In chambers, to the effect thal a prisoner j
once committed by a trial justice, for any
offence greater than a breach ol the peace,
could not be released upon bis giving bail to
the trial Justice alter his commitment, ?nd
that the only way in which he could be bailed
wai to bring him out by a habeas corpus. This
order has now the effect to enforce additional
expense upon the State by allowing the trial
justices to make two bites at the cherry, by
always committing the prisoner in the first la
stance and then having a habeas corpus to bail
fm In this way the accounts of a trial Jos?
ee could be easily doubled. Under the old
magistrates things were different, and lt is
hard to see why a trial justice, having commit?
ted a prisoner for a larceny, cannot order his
release upon his giving bonds with good se?
NEWS ABOUT THE FEVER.
The Disease T altin g no Headway-A
More Cheerful Community-The
Mayor and Major Willi?-An Ugly
Business-The Work of the Wards
Food for Pestilence-The Fever Re?
ported at Beaufort- Good Disinfect?
The city waa a shade more cheerlul yester?
day. Excitement, which had been at a fever
heat for several days, was subsiding, and the
public mind is evidently settling down to the
conclusion that lt is useless to cry out before
the body-politic is hurt. This sensible feeling
will be encouraged by the official reports,
which show the slow progress of the fever.
It now appears that up to Saturday last, the
26th instant, there were nine deaths from
yellow lever. Three ot the nine took place
between August 1 and August 19, and the re?
maining six in the following week. For the
current week the mortality will be greater;
but it is officially stated that there were only
thirty-three new cases ol fever In the week end?
ing on Wednesday night last. This is a very
cheering exhibit, as the proportion of deaths
to the entire number of patients ls steadily de?
creasing. On yesterday, the busy tongue of
rumor could conjure up only two new cases,
-and only two deaths occurred, to our knowl?
edge, during the day.
We should be glad if the Board of Health
would make arrangements to lurnish to the
prees, every evening, an official report of the
number of deaths during the preceding twen?
ty-four hours. This was done regularly In
other yellow fever seasons, and we presume
that it can be done now. The public desire lt,
because they repose no iaithjn any unofficial
statement, and they are urgent in their re?
quest to be supplied every morning, through
the columns ol their favorite journal, with the
latest official news concerning the common
enemy. The publication ol daily reports
would allay alarm by snowing in plain figures
the course ol the disease. Nothing, then,
would be left to the Imagination. These re?
ports, moreover, would give a quletns to the
wild rumors about the condition of Charles?
ton, which, in the absence of official Intelli?
gence, are greedily swallowed in the interior
of the State.
The City Inspector's Office-Misunder?
standing Among the Heads- Kajar
Willi? Opposed and Politic? Inter,
Pursuant to his appointment by the Mayor
on the preceding evening, as executive officer
of the Board of Health, Major E. Willis went
down yesterday morning to the office of the
absent city Inspector, to enter upon the duties
which he had voluntarily undertaken. A large
number of laborers, who had been notified,
were on band, and everything seemed to
promise that the work of cleansing the city
would soon be under way. Upon looking at
the books of the Inspector, which were shown
him by Mr. Dorri!, the major lound
a number of carts engaged which
he deemed unnecessary, and immediately ad?
vised their discharge. Hr. Jenk's right-hand
man, J. L. Howard, here came in, and upon
hearing the above, Intimated that the major
was overstepping his authority, and infringing
upon the duties ol the street inspector; at the
same time producing a letter from the Mayor,
which corroborated this view. This unlooked
for opposition from Jenks's assistant created
some exciting talk; but Major Willis, declining
any controversy oa the subject with the Burly
assistant, referred the matter to the Mayor.
Both parties then adjourned to the Mayor's
office, where another Blcbmond proved to be
In the field in the person of the redoubtable
Alderman-Doctor, M. H. Collins; and a refer?
ence was held in his presence, and that of Dr.
B, Lebby, the city registrar.
Major Willis here tdd the Mayor that he did
not want anybody's place; that his only motive
ia offering his services was the welfare of the
public, and that if the Mayor wanted him to
serve he must deflae blB position. The con
fereace ended, however, without such a defi?
nition from the Mayor, and in the evening
Major 'Villis addressed a written communica?
tion, requesting a written answer In regard to
After this unexpected denouement, Major
Wilds, ol course, took no further action uatil
his duties should be defined by the Mayor,
and he should be placed in a position to
, defend his authority. In accepting the rather
Indefinite appointment by the Mayor, Major
Willis did not understand that he was to take
Jenk's office, but was led to believe that his
duties would include those of the inspector's
office, in addition to assisting the health'
officer, and carrying out the views of the
Mayor. In short, that lt was his Impression
that he was to be the executive officer ol the
health department, and have chief control ia
ail sanitary measures. With these views be
entered the office ot the city Inspector, and
upon being opposed la his measures, relerred
the matter to the Mayor. The latter function?
ary not only declined then to define the posi?
tion to which he had appointed Major Willis,
but refused to sustain bim after promising his
support on the previous evening.
The Mayor was interviewed last evening by
our reporter, and the following card will ex?
plain the trae reason of the opposition to Major
CHARLESTON, S. C., August 31.
To correct a false Impression that has found
its way both into the papers and upon the
streets, I make this public statement, that I
have never been requested by any man or del?
egation to appoint Major E. Willis street in?
spector. He has neither asked the appoint?
ment hlQseli, nor do I believe he has had the
least expectation or lt. Certainly no such ap?
pointment has been made by me. I have, how?
ever, accepted the voluntary offer of Alderman
M. H. Collins to discharge the duties of city
Inspector daring the absence of the Inspector,
Captain J. H. Jenks. Major Willis has also
kindly offered to co-operate with him In carry?
ing out any sanitary measures which may be
necessary. G. PILLSBURY, Mayor.
In conversation the Mayor further stated
that the matter had been adjusted at the con?
ference to the satisfaction of all concerned;
that Major Willis had concurred ia the ap?
pointment of Mr. Collins, and Bald that he
(Major Willis) and the doctor "would work
together like two little mules." The Mayor
says that Inspector Jenks would probably be
back In the city by Saturday.
The reports of the assistant commissioners
of the board of health show the city to be In
no condition to allow any valuable time to be
wasted on these triflings. A vast deal of
work has to be done yet before the city can be
called clean. Eight hundred and fifty offensive
lots have been reported to the board of health,
and the scavengers all say that the city was
never in BO filthy a condition. The nuisances
are located mostly in Rottenboro', and many
in the streets around the Jail.
A aeport was curreut yesterday en the street
that no destitute person would be received in?
to the City Hospital without a certificate from
the Mayor, registrar or one of the city physl.
Cian8. Dr. Lebby, the chiel health officer,
states that this is not so; and that as long as a
bed in the hospital was left unoccupied, the
patients recommended by the Howard Associ?
ation would be received, and that when neces?
sary a comfortable ambulance would be sent
Overhauling Ward 4.
A meeting of the sub -comm lt i ee of the fourth
division of Ward 4 was held yesterday morn?
ing, at the office ot the chairman, Mr. Frede?
rick Richards. The division was again divid?
ed, and two members of the sub-committee
were assigned to each section. These com?
mittees went to work yesterday inspecting
the premises in their sections, and the whole
ward will soon be thoroughly overhauled.
Ward No. 5.
This ward is organized, lor the preservation
of its health, under the following committee,
which is actively engaged, and we under?

The offal Pile?.
Since the pestiferous work of the chlffoneirs
upon the heaps of filth deposited by the city
scavengers' carte, near Potter's Field, was
brought to notice, a policeman bas been sta?
tioned near the deposits to prevent their re?
moval. The piles of offal near the butchers'
pens, in Line street, are also watched, and
yesterday morning Wm. Gass and J. Johnson
were reported for removing the filth and ob?
structing Line street willi it. The cases will
be examined this morning:
Food for Disease.
Two instances of flagrant neglect have
been reported to THE NEWS.
A quantity of decaying vegetables and
s'orimp heads were put out in front ol the house
one door south of Panknln's drug store, on
Meeting street, belore seven o'clock on Wed?
nesday morning. It was not removed, and
yesterday morning more garbage was added
to the pile. At ten o'clock yesterday the dis?
gusting mass was still reeking in the sun.
At two o'clock yesterday the garbage
brought out from three bouses in Orange
street, in the morning, was still lying by the
At a meeting of the Howard Association,
held yesterday morning, the reports from the
various committees were received, and proved
much more favorable than the flying rumors
allowed any one to expect. Only two new
caseB ol yellow fever were reported, in the en?
tire city, since the preceding day.
Mr. C. F. Panknln bas prepared a quantity
of the disinfecting fluid-sesqul-chlorlde of Iron
with carbolic acid-which is highly commend,
ed by Dr. Moreau Morris, of New York, and
was the result of a thorough scientific experi?
mentation by the officers of the Metropolitan
Board of Health. All night scavengers In New
York are compelled to use it, os the effects are
compound. The iron checks fermentation,
and the chlorine acts as an oxidizing agent
Its carbolic acid also aids in arresting decom?
position and fermentation, and the whole com?
bination, thereiore, by its chemical action, de?
composes the sulphuretted hydrogen. The
price of the preparation, as advertised, ls fifty
cents a bottle.
Mr. G. J. Luhn invites attention to the new
disinfectant- bromo-chloraluin - for which he
is the wholesale agent. It ls non-poisonous,
a;.d is highly recommended as a specific in all
contagious and pestilential diseases, such as
cholera, typhoid fever, ship fever, smallpox,
scarlet fever, measles, diseases of animals,
?c. The preparation may be used in the or?
dinary way in stables, cesspools, houses or
sick rooms, and may be taken as a gargle in
cases cf diptheria and the like. The bromo
chloralum 1B sold by all druggists.
Reports of Fever In Beaufort.
The Savannah Republican says:
We were Informed by a gentleman yester?
day that he bad Been a letter, lrom a reliable
source, which stated that the yellow fever had
reached Beaufort, 8. C., having been brought
therefrom the phosphate works, where seven
or eight cases had prevailed. The cases In
Beaulort proved latal. It would be well for
the city authorities to look to the quarantine
of the numerous boat loads ol negroes who ar?
rive in the city from that place almost dally,
and to place such restrictions upon their land*
lng as in their wisdom they may deem neces?
sary for the safety ol' our city.
Gentlemen who left Beaufort as late as Sat?
urday last say that they heard nothing there to
confirm this report; but, on the other hand,
we know that one of our large wholesale drug?
gists yesterday received a large and pressing
order lor disinfectants lrom Beaufort, which
looks fishy, to say the least.
ST. PETER'S (CATHOLIC) SCHOOL.-The re?
opening of this school, which was to have
taken place next Monday, ls postponed to Oc?
tober. Notice will be given In time of the re?
opening of the school.
NEW INTERNAL REVENDE GAUGER.-Mr. J.
A. Alpers, the efficient and obliging secretary
of the German Schulzen Club, bas been ap?
pointed an Internal revenue gauger, and has
his office at No. 48 Broad street. Wholesale
liquor dealers who have any packages of
liquors to be stamped In compliance with the
Internal revenue laws, will please make appli?
cation to him after 3 o'clock P. M. each day.
THE FUNERAL of the late A. B. Jarvis took
place yesterday morning, and was very numer?
ously attended. Orange Lodge, A. F. M., the
Knights ol Pythias, the Board of Trade and
the Fire Department, were all fully represent?
ed. After the funeral services at Grace Church,
the remains were escorted to Magnolia, where
they were interred, the Knights of Pythias
performing the last sad rites, according to the
custom of their organization.
CASE OF DISTRESS FOR REST.-Rachel How?
ard, a ponderous black woman, was yesterday
arraigned before Trial Justice T. J. Mackey,
charged by Elizabeth McNeal with seizing
upon her goods and chattels, and refusing to
deliver up the same. Rachel hires a house In
Inspection street, and had rented a room to
the prosecutrlx. The latter bad not paid up
lier rent promptly, and three dollars being
now due for the same, Rachel had entered her
tenant's apartment and distrained upon all of
her furniture not excepting the bed upon
which the prosecutrlx lay sick. Distress of
rent having been abolished, Rachel was made
so feel the force of the maxim 'Hgnorantia
legis neminem excus?t,* and was sentenced to
pay a fine ol' ll and costs. Without waiting
for the alternative sentence, she paid up in
lull, and left the court In high dudgeon at tbe
unsufficlency of the law to afford her redress.
FLORIDA LONG COTTON.-The following late
information from the long cotton district of
Florida has been furnished us by a lactorage
house of this city :
MILLWOOD, MARION CO., August 18.
There has been a terrille gale blowing here
for the last fifty hours, wind northeast, but has
changed to southwest and Somewhat abated.
I lear a great deal of Injury has been done to
the cotton crop.
MICANOPV, A LA cu CA Co., August 26.
On the 19th Instant, there set in one of the
most terrific gales from the northeast, that
lasted for two days-blowing the cotton down,
a nd even the bolls and blooms off the stalk,
and doing Immense damage to the crops. To?
day there ls a storm raging through this coun?
ty, with not mucli less lury than the one of a
week ago. It prevails lrom the same direc?
tion. Immense quantities of rain fell during
the first storm, and more if possible during
tUls. It would be difficult to estimate the
damage done to the crops; but I assure you
lt is immense, and the crops here will be very
GAINESVILLE. ALACHUA CO., August 18.
A violent wind una rain storm prevails here,
which has raged lor twenty-four hours; bas
caused serious damage to cotton and corn
crop?. The damage to cotton is generally es?
timated at one-third. Trees ana fences are
prostrate to an extent never before witnessed.
My own crop, near town, ls injured fully one
BOWEN'S ASPIRATIONS.-A Washington dis?
patch to the New York Herald says : "Ex-Con?
gressman Bowen, ol South Carolina, in a let?
ter addressed to a friend In this city, states
that since hts return to Charleston he has been
assured ol the unwavering and unfaltering
friendship ot his old constituents, and that he
is confident that the past will be iorgolten and
his claimB to the suffrage of his lellow-cltlzens
be as readily acknowledged In the luture as in
the past. He ls mentioned as the next Repub?
lican candidate for Governor of that State-a
compromise between himself and Congress?
man DeLarge, whose seat he intended to con?
test on the meeting of Congress."
DRAINE m TROUBLE.-Henry Draine, a well
known colored maD, who has run Ihe gauntlet
of more trial Justice suits and criminal prose?
cutions than any person of his age In town,
got into trouble again yesterday afternoon.
First he quarrelled and had a fight with An?
drew Turner, on South Bay, which was hardly
over before he became entangled in another
squabble around the corner, in King street,
with another colored antagonist, named
Richard Beckett. In the last fight the two an?
tagonists were arrested by the police, and
taken to the Guardhouse. At the door of the
popular institution, Draine was claimed by a
constable on a warrant from Trial Justice T. J.
Mackey, for an assault and battery
upon Andrew Turner. Draine was de?
livered up and taken before the trial
justice for examination. Surrounded by
his enemies, in the course ol lils examination
Draine remarked that "he did not expect Jus?
tice, but that he was prosecuted in this way
on account of his political principles." For
thle speech he was committed to jail lor con?
tempt of court until this morning, when his
examination wiil be resumed. On his way
thither he WBB accompanied by about forty
negroes, hooting at and insulting him.
Draine, as ls well known, ls uniortunate in
being talkative, and not knowing when to
hold his tongue. Owing to this falling he Is
always surrounded by a crowd who walt to
Bee the row. In the cases of assault and bat?
tery, however, he is olten more sinned
against than sinning; and more especially Is
this the case since hi* political conversion at
the recent election has made him an object of
envy and hatred to bis former Radical asso?
