PERSONAL.-The New York papers announce
that the Rev. Jas. W. Miles, of Charleston, has
sailed for Europe with a view of improving
A MOST OCTRAOEOCS ASSAULT, growing of
bitter political reminiscences, was yesterday
made by a colored Radical, named April De?
laney, upon Major Joe Green, at the corner of
Church and Market streets. Delaney setting
the worst of lt, adjourned the altercation to a
trial Justice's office, where, however, being
clearly in the wrong, he feared no better
than in the street.
Son OVER BY A TRAIS.- SUSPICIOUS FOUL
PLAT.-The Saturday evening train on the Sa?
vannah and Charleston Railroad, when be?
tween White Hall and Saltkehatchie Stations,
ran over the body of an unkown colored man,
which lay In the grass across the Bleepers.
When lt was examined a wound similar to one
produced by a gun shot was found in hi* Bide,
opposite where the car had etrnek bim, which
leads to the supposition that there is some?
thing wrong In connection with his death. A
40fury of inquest was Impanelled, and the body
kept for post-mortem examination.
ABSENT-MINDED.-On Saturday night a color?
ed boy named Isaac Washington was employed
by Henry Draine to take a basket ol potatoes
to tht latter's house. The youth set out, but
BO far forgot himself as to carry his basket to
another bouse, where ho attempted to sell the
potatoes. The owner came up in time to save
his property, and the absent-minded youth was.
lodged In the Guardhouse on the charge of
larceny and vagrancy. .He was brought before
the Mayor yesterday morning, and, after an
examination, was discharged with some good
advice and a sharp reprimand.
LICENSES.-The fact that peddlers of small
articles are required to have a city license
seems to be beyond the comprehension of the
colored people, among whom violations of the
license law are very numerous. Of the un?
licensed peddlers, one out of every ten are de?
tected. Moses Simons and Hamilton Robin?
son were caught bj a policeman on Saturday
nigh" peddling chickens without the required
license, and Charles Cormlck was discovered
to be doing the same thing with a lot of fish.
The chicken-sellers were discharged by the
Mayor, but the Ash vender came out minus his
flab, which were sent to the colored Orphan
house. Perhaps the orphans like chickens as
well as fish, anti would not object to a broil or
fricassee at the next favorable opportunity.
A FORGER PARDONED_J. H. SJmonson, con?
victed of uttering a forged note in the name of
Lieutenant-Governor Ransier, bas been par?
doned by Governor Scott, and was yesterday
-^"released from the jail in this city, where he
was confined. He was Med before Judge
Platt, at the October term of 1870, and having
been convicted was sentenced to one year's
imprisonment with hard labor in the Peniten?
tiary. This sentence was comnfuted Di the
following December to the same term in the
Jail ol this county, on condition of his acting
as a teacher in the promising school at this
institution, a lull description of which was
given some time ago in THE NEWS. The edu?
cation of the Jail-birds will suffer most by his
loss, and there will be some trouble before the
services of another literary character can be
procured for the position.
CLUBS AND STARS.-Jane and Lavinia Lad
son, two colored nymphs, arrested for disor?
derly conduct and using obscene language In
King street, were sentenced each to pay a line
o? fi ve dollars or go to the House of Correc?
tion for ten days.
Charles Smith, arrested for being drunk and
unable to take care of himself In Church
street, was sentenced to pay a fine of five dol?
lars or spend ten days in the House of Correc?
Lewis May and Richard Lyons, who were
found reclining on the sidewalk, the one In
Broad street and the other in Elliott street,
under similar circumstances, were visited
with the same punishment
Francis Campbell and John Brown, lodged
for raising a disturbance and fighting on King
street, had their examination laid over until
Charles Murphy, who was unequal to the
task of taking care of himself, on State street,
surrendered to a policeman, and was allowed
to choose between a fine ol five dollars and
ten days in the House ol' Correction.
A woman who got d-unk "just to feel what it
waajlfcm." became so elated as to make love
to a policeman, who took her to the Guard?
house. She was discharged by the Mayor on
pleading the first offence.
V- John Shelton, for getting crazy drunk and
raising a disturbance in front of the Alms?
house, was sent to the House of Correction for
A LUCKLESS SOMNAMBULIST.-Between 2 and
3 o'clock yesterday morning Mr. Lorentz, the
proprietor of the saloon at No. 133 Meeting
?treet, Just above Market, was awakened In
his apartment In the third story of the build?
ing by groans and feeble cries for aid. After
hunting In other quarters he lound a Mr. Wm.
White on the stairway badly wounded and
bleeding profusely from the mouth. A physi?
cian was immediately sent for, but, belore he
arrived, Mr. Lorentz, who was afraid that the
man would die, got the city wagon from the
Guardhouse and sent the wounded man to
the City Hospita).
The sufferer had. been allowed by the pro?
prietor to sleep in the billiard saloon on the
second story of the bul.ding the night before,
his couch consisting of a sofa and some chairs
at the back of the room. Mr. White says the
first thing he knew alter going to sleep was
th a he found himself on the bricks in the
back yard underneath the window near
which he had gone to sleep. He was se badly
hurt as to be unable to walk, bnt after
some time he managed to crawl up the
stairs, suffering terribly the whole way, to Mr.
Lorentz's room on the third story. He slept
alone in the billiard-room, and, as he dis?
claims all intention of suiciding, there ls no
doubt that he started to walk in his sleep and
stepped oat of the open window near by. He
leli apparently upon his lace and left side, as
his under lip was split open and his left wrist
.broken by the shock. One o? his legs was
dislocated and the other badly bruised. His
wounds were promptly dressed at the City
Hospital, and under the kind treatment he is

The Board of Health Reports Four
Death* In the laut Twenty-four Hoars.
A word qi explanation In regard to the dally
reports furnished to the press by Pr. Robert
Lebby, the Indefatigable city registrar, may
serve to prevent any misapprehension of their
nature and value. The reports are made up
for the twenty-four hours ending at 12 o'clock
M., and show the number of certificates oj
death, from yellow fever, received by the city
registrar wlihin that period. Certificates
handed in after 12 o'clock M. on ona day ap?
pear in the report ol the following day; so that
when deaths occur in the aliernoon, or are
not reported promptly, there may be an ap?
parent discrepancy between the actual deaths
and the number reported. But any deaths
omitted, for the reasons given, in one report,
must appear in the next. The community,
therefore, may relay on the reports as faithful
exhibit? ol the course of the fever In Charles?
ton. We believe that it ls not practicable to
report the number of new cases each day, for
the reason that, in the opinion of many medi?
cal men, forty-eight hours must elapse before
lt can be known with certainly whether a
patient has, or ha3 not. the yellow lever:

much feeling, the object of the meeting,

Thc Fever at Beaufort.
Captain Edward Willis, of ship Canada, who
arrived In this city yesterday morning, from
Beau lort, states that ne knows ol seven cases
of yellow fever at Beaufort, all of which proved
fatal. Per contra. Dr. W. H. Balley, the deputy
health officer, writing to Dr. Lebby, our health
officer, under date of Beaufort, September 2,
There bas been no case ol this fever at any
SDint along Bull River, and the first case in
eaufort occurred on or about the 21st of Au?
gust, in a young man who had been spending
some tineen days in Charleston. There ls no
ground, therefore, for supposing that the soli?
tary case of bilious fever at this station was
the cause of the outbreak ol the disease at
any other point. Young Smith (former mate
of Pilot Boy) died from what br. Stuart, Lie
physician, informed me was bilious remittent
fever. After what I have written, lt ls need?
less to say anything about the eighteen cases
of yellow fever at Bull River, and the infection
ol Beaufort from this point. Such rumors are
on a par with the one which has been current
here during the past week, viz : that yellow
fever claimed its Atty victims per week in
Charleston. Ac, Ac, and bear their absurdity
on their lace.

Carolina Independent Boat Club for a race be?
tween the boats on or beiore the 15th inst. A
committee of three were appointed to confer
with the other club and make the requisite
arrangements. This challenge will no doubt
be accepted, and the admirers of aquatic
sports may look forward to the race as made
up lor the 15th instant.
"YOUR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE 1"-Yesterday
afternoon an affray took place between two
white men, nnmed Plath and Wingman, In
Rottenboro', which came near proving fatal to
the former. It seems that Plath owed Wini
man some money, and the latter wanting to
get it, took a gun In the aliernoon, and meet?
ing Plath on ihe street, presented his lusee
and told him to settle. Plath, expecting to be
shot, rushed at his antagonist, and catching
bold of the gun, struck him several blows. The
crowd which had collected now interfered, and
the police coming up arrested the pair. Wing?
man appeared to be Intoxicated, and it was
lound necessary to bring him to the Guard
house in a wagon. Ai an examination here
Plath was discharged, and the other held lor
trial before the Mayor this morning.
