presenting this ch'.ck, Wilson was brought to
the office ol Mr. Gurney, county treasurer, and,
upon comparing tue signatures or E. M. Grimke
and J. F. Po; pen heirn, school commissioners,
upon the check, with others, they wtre f und to
be forgeries. Wilson was lmmedia ely arrested
by Trial Justice Magrath, and an examination of
the case was held, Ann Huger being a witness
She statt d that lur pay certificate was the genuine
one, and that the one presented by Philip
Wilton was a cipy. Cpon this statement

closed during the months or Ju y and August.
Ann Huger being the principal of the school, bad

COUNTRY GULLS AND CITY SHARPERS.-Sat?
urday m ?rn inp, a notorious city sharper, Thom?
as I'rtant al as Phlladelphi i, left the city behind
him and weat np the road io Hud some simple
rusti.- with more money than brains upon whom
to exercise his wit. About elt ht miles from the
city lie came to two old colore 1 people, possessed
or tte requisite qualification?, to whom he unfold?
ed a neat little speculation by which monejl
could be doubled In small sums lu the course or
an hour. The bait took, aud one or the old folks
produced his hoard of seventeen dollars and the
ether of three dollars, which they placed in the
hanls or the swindler. They sent their Eon
along to guard against knaveiy, and the boy
with the sharper came to the city. At the corner
of King and Line streets, Philadelphia persuaded
the youthlul rustic to sit down while he went off
to make the Investment. The boy waited long
enough, but no Philadelphia ever came bacX, and
late in the night he went back to his parents to
(ell them or their loss. The money was all that
i he old people had saved to pay their rent, and
Uieir grier knew no bounds. They came to Hie
city, and having reade their statement before
Trial Justice Magrath, a warran*, was issued
against Philadelph ii ou the charge of swindling
and cheating, lie was arrested yesi erda; and
committed to jail for examination to day.
THE COLLEGE OF CHARLESTON.-The annual
meeting of the board of trustees of the. College or j
Charleston was held yesterday at the College
Library. No business or any ipubllc Interest was

the Rev. Mr. Miles, was deferred until a later

THE GREAT SOUTHERN PUNO MANUFACTORY.
We refer with special pleasure to the advertise?
ment or the great Southern plano manufactory of J
Messrs. Wm. Knabe A Co., of Ballimore.
This factory ls now one of the largest in the
wor'.d; lt ls a magnificent flve-story structure,
fronting an entire block on Eu aw street, and
covering, together with the lumber yard3 attach?
ed, some two and one-half acres of ground. Th-ee
hundred and fifty men are constantly employed
turning out over forty instruments per week.
Among the thousand and one pianos offered to
the public, we s:arcely know any Instrument so
fully uniting all the desirable qualities sought for
as the Knabe plano. It ls a matter of some dim
cnlty and perplexity to Inexperienced persons to
select a good Instrument or any capacity. We too
often rely upon the judgment or friends In the se?
lection of a plato, and are thus frequently disap?
pointed. The only Bure way, In our opinion, is to
go to the best maker. For this reason we reborn
mend to our readers to purchase pianos of Wm.
Knabe A Co.'s manufacture. This wi l relieve
them the vexatious necessity of wasting time In a
long search. Toe reputation of the Knabe pianos
tj an mrallible guarantee or excellence. For du?
rability we would specially recommend them, as
t elog m . de in a Southern city, with a special view
to the trying changes cr a Sontbern climate.
CONTINENTAL INSURANCE COMPANT. OF NEW
YORE.-From a circular Issued by the Continental
Insurance Company to its agents, we glean the
following fa ts, viz:
The IOSB of this company by the Chicago fire
will reach very nearly one mi ll?n two hundred
thousand dollars, which ls less than the amount
of the earned surplus possessed by the company,
leaving it In possession of a majority or all Ita
present assets, being an amount thereof equal to
the entire capitol of the company, and la addi
tlon thereto a surplus largely exceeding the un?
earned premium upon all outstanding risks.
The company is enabled to B?stalo this lost of
an amount more than twice as great as Its cap!
tal without imputing that capital, by reason of
the wise forethought exhibited tn the adoption In
1866 of the participation system.
The value of that system In making Insurance
cheap has been proved by the redemption at its
par value and Interest of all issues from 1857 to
issi inclusive, and l's more value In making the
customers of the company more safe, ls now
equally well establlshel by the results of this
The board at its late meeting determined, fer
the purpose of maintaining the pre-eminent posi?
tion of the company, and from the propriety of
uniting to conservative underwriting an abun?
dant capital, and for thc further purpose of
avoiding, BO far as ls practicable, disturbing the
permanent investments or the company, to in?
crease Its capital to one million dellars.
While the present stockholders are by law en?

amount, it ls gratifying to know that the mem

not only to take their respective proportions or
the amount, bat applied for over $300,000 in addi

Notwithstanding this Increase of capital, the
