ASSAULT.-Henry Draine was arraigned be?
fore Trial Justice T. J. Mackey yesterday
morning, on the charge of assault and battery
on the person of one Andrew Turner. He
was found guilty and sentenced to a fine of $5
or twenty days In jail. Henry demurred to
the decision, however, and demanded a jury,
which was granted. But on advice of his
counsel he concluded to pay the fine.
JJ^THE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS.-The annual
meeting of the county commissioners, which
i.as been so long and anxiously anticipated by
those who had "ilttle bills" to be audited, and
which was to have taken place yesterday,
proved a failure, a quorum not bein z present.
The law requires a full board, and the ab?
sence of Commissioner McLaughlin rendered
this Impossible. The auditing ot the bills was
the principal duty to be performed, and the
failure to have a meeting will be a damaging
blow to the interests of the trial Justices, who
Lave not bad a chance at the county checks tor
LET Doos DELIGHT Ac-Mrs. Myers and
Mary Percy were reported yesterday morning
to the Mayor, the former for allowing her dog
to run at large and bite B. Tigb, In Nassau
street, and the latter for allowit.z her dogs a \
similar liberty in biting F. Dunning, In Line
street. The bite In each instance did not
prove to be anything serious, and the parties
were discharged, the police in the neighbor?
hood having received strict orders to keep an
eye on the offending animals, and to dispatch
them should they be again allowed to run at ]
large on the street.
NEW EXCUSE FOR AN ASSAULT.-Patrick
White was brought before Trial Justice
Magrath yesterday morning, charged with an
assault and battery upon a girl named Alice
Darlington. On the trial, the prosecutrix
showed the marks of violence upon ber per?
son, and the defendant admitted that be had
streck ber, but excused himself by saying she
was out o? ber head and crazy,and therefore it
made no difference. He was soon convinced
^fF\m error by the trial Justice, who found bim
gently, and sentenced him to pay a fine of one
dollar and costs, o: go to Jail for five days.
A JOLLY TAR.-About half-past 3 o'clock yes-1
terday morning, a hair-brained sailor, P. J.
Cherry by name, became disgusted with the
deathly silence whien pervaded the eily, and
tried to raise an excitement by giving vent to
a series of whoops and yells which would have
done credit to a Comanche brave. These
startling demonstrations as they fell upon the
tympanum ol a drowsy policeman, suggested
a raid of the Ku-Klux at least, but upon seeing
the originator upon Vendue Bange executing
a fantastic pas sud In time with his unearthly
music, the man in blue took courage and suc?
ceeded in capturing the eccentric Tar. He
was duly brought before the Mayor, but upon
showing the harmless nature of his amuse?
ment fae was discharged with the advice to be
less noisy In bis demonstrations.
SULLIVAN'S ISLAND REGATTA.-The monthly

dered to be advertised.
An unfortunate Bacchanalian, who lost his
way io Chalmers street and sat down to rest,
was taken before the Mayor, and discharged
on the plea ol the first offence.
How THE TRIAL JUSTICES WORK IT.-Peter
Hanson, the? sailor ot the steamer Alanlhus,
who was committed by Trial Justice Magrath
for mutiny and assaulting the captain of his
vessel, was brought up yesterday on a habeas
corpus before Trial Justices Caulfield and T. J.
Mackey for examination. The Jailor in this in?
stance, on the authority of the order of Jadge
Graham, refused to allow the prisoner to be
brought before the committing trial justice,
and would obey no requisition but tbat of a
habeas corpus. After an examination, the
prisoner was again committed, subject to the
order of Trial Justice Magrath. The working
of this order is admirably adapted to relieve
the present dearth of business among the
justices. One case affords employment for
Ujftee ot the fraternity, where before but one
was necessary. All three are paid by the
Etate, and an assault and battery becomes an
expensive affair. If this thing goes on, the
Bwoilen trial Jr.stlce accounts of last season
will bs trebled this year. How do the taxpay?
ers like the prospect ?

Our people felt decidedly better yesterday.
The cool change, perhaps, braced everybody's

fever. Our reporters were unable to learn o?
a single new case, and there was but one
death-a lady, who has been sick for many

The Mayor and Major Willis.
The misunderstanding which occurred on
Thursday, arising from the conflict between
the claims of the city Inspector and the duties
which, as executive officer of the board of
health, Major Willis understood he was autho?
rized to perform, remained yesterday in a state
of abeyance. The written instructions defining
his position and power, which Major Willis had
requested of the Mayor, were slow in coming,
and with ble hands thus practically tied the
major could do nothing bul wait. The impor?
tan', document, it seems, was an affair requir?
ing great deliberation, and the Mayor. Alder?
man Collins and Mr. Thomas Jefferson Mackey
put their wise beads together lu preparing it
at the Mayor's office. Late in the after?
noon Major Willis received the missive
of the triumvirate, signed by the Mayor. It
was copious in its thanks to the major for his
past services In cleaning the cellars and low
places In the elly of waler, and authorized him
to continue pumping, and to inspect the pre?
mises that might be reported. Whatever
nulsa?- es be found, it authorized him to re?
port to the city inspector and registrar, who
would take steps to abate the same, and the
co-operation of the authorities in the preserva
tion o? the work was promised. While the
document purported to give him some power,
lt was BO full of limitations and restrictions,
that it was hard to make out what was really
Intended. Major Willis did not have time last
night to respond to this complimentary epls<
tie, but will do BO to-day. A few cellars in
which the water was springing were pumped
out by the engines, and beyond this nothing
more was done.
On the other band, the Mayor on Thursday
afternoon wrote to Alderman Collins accept?
ing his offer to act gratuitously as city lnspec
tor In the place ot Jenke, and authorizing him
to enter at once upon the duties of the office.
The new Inspector ls too well known to need
an introduction to our readers, and yesterday
he took charge of the duties of bis office. The
carts were at ocn.e set to work to aid the scav?
engers in removing the extra rubbish. By
order of the registrar, the inspector also tele?
graphed to New York for twelve thousand
pounds ot chloride of lime, which will be ship?
ped to-day, the present supply being reported
as almost exhausted. Orders have also been
issued to the assistants to compel the iaithlul
discharge of their duties by the scavengers.
Oar Merchants and the Fever.
A prominent jobbing merchant of our city
writes to THE NEWS as follows :
The maimer in which country newspapers
are attempting to divert trade from Charleston
is, to say the least of lt, contemptible. The
Augusta Chronicle and Sentinel tells us that
several Charleston merchants expect to do
business lhere during the fall. The Columbia
Phoenix says several of our merchants are
making arrangements to go there. A religious
paper, published In Atlanta, Ga., stated a short
time since that no less than seven of our busi?
ness houses were coming to that town. There
is not a particle of truth in these statements.
There are central points in the interior where
some of our merchants might send samples of
their stocks, but none ol our jobbers would
think of going either le Augusta or Columbia
with eveu samples. One of our jobbing houses
proposes to try the experiment of opening a
urauch of meir business at Atlanta, Ga. No
more nor co less.
Our Jobbers never had better stocks than
they have now, and, no;withstanding the ex?
aggerated rumors in the country aoout the
prevalence of fever during the last month, the
trade during the month was much larger than
the corresponding month last year. In fact,
we know that Borne of our Jobbing houses'
sales were double tho6e of same mooth last
year. There are here merchants from the in?
terior every day making their purchases. It
ls a fact well known to our oldest merchants,
that never has there been aa instance of a
country merchant who came to Charleston to
purchase goods, remaining one day or two
days, that caught fever. But our object ls not
to induce merchants to come to Charleston
against their judgment; it is to correct the
eironeous s lon es that are being circulated by
interested parties to divert trade from our
market. Country clerks who run at the mere
whisper ot fever, and itinerant peddlers who
carry their stocks on their backs, are not
Charleston merchants. Our merchants are
here, ready to wait upon their customers, or
supply them by order.
The regular meeting of the association was
ueld yesterday at 12 M., at Market Hall. Sev?
eral new members were added to the roll of
the association, and Mr. Wilmot G. DeSaus
sure was elected second vice-president, vice
P. J. Barbot resigned. The report ot the va?
rious ward committees were made, and show
that but three applications, two in Ward 4 and
one in Ward 1, for assistance had been made to
the board during the preceding twenty-four
hours. The society desires that all gentlemen
who wish to aid in this work would come
forward and join at once.
A Good Hep n t from Ward 1.
The committee of the board of health, for
Ward No. 1, have made a thorough examina?
tion of their ward, and have found compara?
tively few lots, cellars, Ac, requiring atten?
tion, the ward being in a very clean condition.
They could learn of but one case of yellow
fever in the ward; indeed the general health
of the ward is excellent, there being but little
sickness ol any description.
A Loag-Standing Nuisance.
The condition of Pitt street, between Mon?
tague and Wentworth, is such as to invite the
presence of fever, cholera, or any other
disease. For months past, a number of wash?
erwomen have been In the habit of emptying
their refuse water into gullies in their yards,
through which it flows in streams to the
street. The middle of the street is lower than
the sides, and the water there collects In pools,
which grow putrid under the rays of the sun,
and send forth a pestiferous stench, which
pervades the atmosphere far and near. The
gutters have repeatedly been cleaned by the
efforts of one of the residents of this street,
and for months he has been applying to the
Guardhouse, city Inspector, health officer and
Mayor, but with no other success than per?
haps a temporary cleaning up, which lasts a few
hours. After one of these it soon becomes as
bad as ever, and it is now so offen?
sive that the streets opposite the pools
is scarcely inhabitable. Have we a city In?
spector or have we not ? The Mayor answers
that he has furnished us with a temporary
one in the person of Alderman Collins, and it
is hoped that these cesspools will be among
the first fields which are to prove the clean
sweeping of the new broom.
The Manhattan's Passengers.
We learn, by telegraphic advices from New
York, that the steamship Manhattan, which ar?
rived at that city on Tuesday night last, was
permitted to send her passengers up to the
city on Thursday morning. Travellers will
note the trifling extent of this detention, and
all who desire to go North by Eea will govern
A gentleman who left Beaulort on Thursday
inlorms us that there was, at that time, only
one case of yellow fever m the town, and that
came Irom Bull River. Beaufort ls cleaning
up, and disinfectants are at a premium.
A Specimen Wnopper.
As a specimen of the wild stories with which
people In the Interior are regaled about the
lever in Charleston, we reproduce the follow?
ing from the Columbia Union of yesterday :
A gentleman just irom Charleston, and one
who ought to know whereot he affirms, states
that there were fourteen funerals to his know?
ledge In that city yesterday. ThlB would seem
to indicate a wider range ol the disease than
has yet been reported.
This is on a par with some of the Ku-Klux
stories of the Union.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
I have received the following comm unlca
tions from D. B. Gllllland, Esq., recorder of
the Town Council ot Moultrieville, Sullivan's
Island. Believing it a duty on my part that a
deed so honorable to the agents, and so un?
sought ol by me. should be known to the far
and wide friends of the island, who have a
common interest with ourselves in its great
growth and importance, I ask the favor of lay
log both communications before the public

CHARLESTON, S. C., August 28, 1871.

I should be callous to the just and laudable
sensibilities of our nature were I not gratified
and grateiul for such high consideration from
the gentlemen composing the committee on
lots, and from the whole Council of the Town
of Moultrieville, in session.
It ls additional gratification to me that the
honorable Council are professional gentlemen,
stand in the Iront ranks ol our most respecta?
ble citizens of Charleston and the island, and
that none among them is a member of the Ro?
man Catholic Church.
Moreover, the humble subject of their high
consideration is a Roman Catholic priest. 1 his
fact proves the elevation and liberality of the
Council. It magnifies the honor conferred. It
ennobles the deed,and reflects an example that
will be always appreciated and honored by the
present and future crowds of liberal citizens
