ceased president, A. B. Jarvis. Mr. Collins

A SUGGESTION FOR THE GENEROUS.-Among
the numer?os sufferers who are now experi?
encing the care and attention o? the Howard
Association, there are numbers Just convales?
cing from severe attack s of illness. The asso?
ciation, of course, lost property by the war,
and since Its hastv organization last month
finds as much as li can do in administering
bare comforts to the numerous applicants for
its bounty. The little luxuries, such as sugar,
limes, preserves, ic, It cannot afford to dis?
pense, and the convalescing poor cannot afford
io buy them. We have been requested to make
this statement. Any donations ol the above
articles would be of much assistance to the as?
sociation in its noble work.
HABEAS CORPUS.-William Grant and Ash?
ley Carrere, the two colored boys who were
committed to jail some weeks ago for cutting
the ankle o? a white boy named Mitchell, were
brought before Trial Justices Caulfield and
Magrath yesterday afternoon, upon a writ o?
habeas corpus, the jailor as usual refusing to
release the prisoners upon an order from the
committing Justice. Upon examination lt
was shown that Carrere was merely an acces?
sory to the offence, and, though present, the
cutting was done entirely by Grant. After
hearing the evidence the Justices released Car?
rere upon his giving ball in tta sum o? $200
for bis appearance at the next term of the
Court of General Sessions. Grant was again
committed to Jail, where he will await his
HATS IN PAWN.-The conductors on the
City Railway have not generally the most
agreeable time In the world; but one o? their
greatest plagues id the habit ol the street
urchins of clinging to the sides and platforms o?
the cars and shouting defiance at theitvenemy.
They take good care to keep out of the reach
of the driver's lash, and as the conductor
moves about have frequent opportunities of
stealing rides. This is not all; but accidents
will happen, and of course attempts will be
4nade to make the company responsible.
These urchins should e turned over at once
to a policeman. Yesterday evening a shrewd
conductor seized the bats of one or two of
these gamins as they clung to the windows of
his car, and notwithstanding the yelling and
crying of the owners, the hats were held in
pawn. The boys had their ride, and their hats
will be held until ihe fare ls paid.
LOAFERS DISPERSED.-The corner of King
and Line streets has of late been the favorite
evening resort of a band of colored men and
boys, and the complaints of the disturbance
caused by their loud talking and other disor?
derly conduct to the neighbors, made lt neces?
sary to bring the matter to a close. On Wed?
nesday evening the crowd was as large and
noisy as usual, when the policeman on duty
ordered them to be qnlet and disperse. In?
stead of obeying this order, lt only furnished
something to langh at, and drew down on the
head of the official a spirited abuse and num?
berless taunts. He went Into the crowd, who
lelt as he came, and captured three colored
youths, named Llmus and Henry Johnson and
John Robinson. The rest disappeared in a
hurry, and the three prisoners were lodged in
the Guardhouse. Having been brought before
the Mayor, they were sentenced each to pay a
fine of two dollars or go to the House of Cor?
rection for five days. The trio were not over?
burdened with the filthy lucre, and went to

Chloride of Lime.
A largo quantity of this effective disinfectant
has been bought by .the city, and can be ob?
tained free ol charge on application at the Up?
per and Lower Guardhouses and at the City
Hospital. The hot sun, after the rains ol the
first part of the week, renders it more Impera?
tive than ever that citizens should use this ar?
ticle freely. It can be obtained free of expense,
and a thorough application o? it upon each
one's premises may prevent a long series of
calamities. Send for the lime.
Clearing off the Water.
Cnlei M. H. Nathan, accompanied by Messrs.
Street and Smith, have had an Interview with
the Mayor, at which the steam fire engines
were offered to the city for use in pump?
ing out the water which has gathered in Hie
cellars and low places of ihe city, owing to the
recent ralas. The terms were that the city
should furnish a pair of horses, or more, suf?
ficient to pull i!i? engine from place to place;
and the ilp.yor says that the rate ol compensa?
tion demanded was thirty dollars a day, and
not thirty-five as stated in the Courier of yes?
terday. The offer is now under advisement
by the Mayor and street inspector. It is prob?
able that at the end of the five days' notice re?
quired by the ordinance, the cellars ond lots
will be Inspected, and the engines used to
pump out such water as may be found in
these places. In this manner lt is expected to
make the citizens, whose cellars or lots are
not clear at the end of the five days'notice,
pay the expenses of the engine used to pump
MR. JOHN MARSHALL, JR.-One of the most
prominent young merchants of our city dletl
on Wednesday evening at his residence, in
Washington street, In the thirtieth year ol
his age. Mr. Marshall was a native Charles
tonian. At the outbreak ol the late war for
Southern independence he espoused the cause
ol his State with youthlul ardor, and. havlug
joined the Hampton Legion, he served
through the entire W.JC, sharing in all the va?
rying fortunes of that famous corps. When
the war was over Mr. Marshall returned to his
native city and embarked in the naval stores
business upon his father's wharf. His remarka?
ble energy and business talentslwere notlong In
making themselves felt, and their effects were
apparent In the rapid growth of a large and
lucrative business. H s operations were on
an extensive scale, and he made large sales,
both for the domestic and European markets.
Mr. Marshall was ill but a short time, and a
few hours before his death it was hoped that
he had recovered. A relapse, however, fol?
lowed and he passed gently away, leaving a
widow and two small children. His lunera!
took place yesterday afternoon at the Second
Presbyterian Church, and was largely at?
Opening of the Southern and Atlantic
The Southern and Atlantic Telegraph Com
paoy opened Its Charletton offices yesterday,
and is now ready for tbe transaction of all the
business that may offer. Messages will be
sent, with accuracy and promptitude, to all
points North and Northwest at reduced rates;
and the business men of Charleston are now,
for the first time, in a position to realize the
solid advantages of telegraphic competition.
The high telegraphic rates charged in the
Soutb, as compared with the North, has been
a subject of complaint for years. It was due
to the absence of competition. The Western
Union Company monopolized the business,
and, having no fear of opposition, charged
Just what they pleased. This was only natu?
ral. THE CHARLESTON NEWS would not be as
good and as cheap a paper as it is, If no olher
daily journal were printed in South Carolina.
There have been, of course, occasional reduc?
tions of rates on the part of the Western Union
Company, but these were induced by an ex?
pectation that some rival would enter the
held, and, when the danger blew over, the
rates were advanced to something above the
Experience bas shown that, with telegrams
as with letters, the Increase in business which
springs from a reduction of price makes the
lower rate quite as profitable as the higher
or?-. This led to the organization of the South?
ern and Atlantic Telegraph Company, whose
motto is, No Monopoly and Low Rates. Ample
precautions were taken to prevent the new
company from being bought out by the West?
ern Union, and stock was liberally subscribed
In the cities through which it passes. These
stockholders and their friends hold the for?
tunes of the company in their hands. They
can make it brilliantly successful, if they so
desire, and they must know that, ll the West?
ern Union Company could again monopolize
the Held, it would soon make every business
man pay, in increased prices, all the losses lt
had incurred while lt was fighting against com?
petition. The Southern and Atlantic Company
ls completed irom the North to this city, and
ls nearly finished to Savannah. As rapidly as
possible the line will be pushed on to New Or?
That competition will be an immense saving
to the business public is shown by the lactthat
not long ago the Western Union Company
charged $1 85 for a ten word message from
Charleston to New York. When lt became
manlfeet that the new company was nearly
ready to start, the Western Union rate was re?
duced to $1 60. The rate of the Southern and
Atlantic is only $1 20. We remember the time,
not a century ago, when the Western Union
charged as much as $2 10 for a ten word New
York telegram. This ls a case in point.
The Southern and Atlantic Company are in?
debted for many acts of kindness to Mr. Syl?
vester Kl jg, of this city, who, at great Incon?
venience to himself, tested and worked the
line until the arrival of the company's opera?
tors. Mr. King is an expert operator, although
he bas followed another profession for a num?
ber of years. The offices of the company are
at the corner of East Bay and Broad streets,
immediately opposite the new Postofflce.
They will be open from 7 A. M. to 19 P. M. E.

THE MACON STREET CARS.-Eight new street
cars, intended for the Macon City Raliway,
arrived In this city yesterday by the steamship
Georgia, from New York. The cars were
landed on the wharf, and No. 1, marked,
"Depot and Cotton Avenue," as lt came down
presented quite a smart appearance. The cars
are smaller than our street cars, and are made
with but one platform, upon which the driver
is to sit. In the rear ls a simple step, upon
which the passengers will ascend, and the car
ls furnished with a money box, to obviate the
necessity of a conductor. The wheels are not
solid, but have iron tires, with strong spokes
of the same material, and the whole appear?
ance ot the car is light und neat They were
dragged up to the Ann street depot, whence
they will be shipped by the South Carolina
Railroad for their destination.

TUE FIRE ALARM TELEGRAPH.
CHARLESTON, 8. C., September 14.
TO THE EDITOR OF TUE NEWS.
I see by this morning's paper that some
method is to be adopted by the City Council
at their next meeting, to prevent, in future,
the great and damaging delays in ringing the
fire alarm to which we have been subjected for
some time past.
The importance of this step is apparent lo
every citizen. We ail know that lhere has
been great tardiness upon several occasions
in having the alarms promptly and properly
sounded, thereby causing great loss of proper?
ty, which our people in their present impover?
ished condition can ill afford to loose. I would
suggest to the City Council the feasibility ol' j
having the tire alarm telegraph rebuilt. Thal
i3 the only way of properly remedying the ex?
I have been told by one who knows that a
fire alarm lele^ragh can be built here for
?20,000, and be more complete and reirular
than that here prior to the war, which, I am
told, cost about $60,000.
Our sister eily (God save Hie mark) Savan?
nah has recently adopted the alarm spoken of,
and, from what I can learn, lt works like a
The fire alarm here, prior to the war, re?
quired two sets of wires over the entire eily;
une ol which was used for transmitting the
alarm from the station box to the fire alarm
room, in the Lower Guardhouse, where it was
registered upon a dial. A man there, who
had to be on watch all the lime, then rang the
bells over the city by means ol ihe other set
By this new method the bells are rung direct
from the station box by the policeman or fire?
man, who first discovers the fire, and in an
instant ever) body knows exactly where the
location is. The merits or this new method ls
plainly established by the lact that the services
of three or four men at the Guardhouse, and
one set of wires, are entirely dispensed with,
and Instead of paying $60,000 ior an alarm, we
get one equally as good, and generally con?
ceded to be better, for $20,000.
1 understand this alarm has been in success?
ful operation in Boston, Chicago. Philadelphia,
Cincinnati, St. Louis, Buffalo, Baltimore, and
a snore or so more ol Northern cities, for a
number ol years, lo any or all of whom refer?
ence ls made Tor evidence of its great supe?
riority and value and uniform reliability.
Bv ail means let us have a fire alarm tele?
