white man named MiUbonw was d:scovered
frozen to death near the Vii?a?re of BamWg,
on the Augusta Road. He was last seen in?

wards the woods, on the edge of which he
was found deao next m o ming.
INQUEST.-Coroner Tait held an inquest yes?
terday morning over the body of Ann Math
ewes (colored,) who was severely burned on
Friday la-t, In the rear of Dr. Blackman's
store, on Broad street, and subsequently died
of her Injuries. The verdict of the jury waa
that the deceased came to her death from Ia
jarles received by an accident il burning.
THB ACADEMY.-The second ccocert of Mme.
McCuliocb-Brlgnoll last evening waa not very
folly attended, the severe weather doubtless
having had the effect o? keeplog many at
home. Mme. Brignoll, herself; was somewhat
indisposed. Still the programme was consci?
entiously performed and several of the pieces
were accorded an encore.
TBS WEATHER.-The cold spell which began
a lew days back continues with unaba?og
severity, and yesterday morning the thermom?
eter reached thc minimum point of twenty-five
degrees above zero, which ls some four or Ave
degrees lower than lt had been this year. Ice
was abundant yesterday tn almost every street,
and retained its gla?sy solidity all day, in the
shade, without any Indien lon s of thawing.
The wind ls still (rom the northwest, and the
latest indications promise a continuance of |
^severe cold thia morning.
THB TJP-TOWN GROCERY.-Mr. D. Fitzgibbon
has transformed tbe uncouth building which
lately disfigured the northwest corner of King
and Cannon streets, Into a first-claT srfxn*"Ji
where he ls now prepared to offer to the local
and general trade inducements that cap hard?
ly fall to give satisfaction. The goods are
warranted the best, and will be sold at the
lowest prices. Mr. Fitzgibbon bas done the
neighborhood a benefit In his improvement,
said we have no doubt the neighborhood will
reciprocate the good turn.
Is "THE BEND."-The brisk cold of yester?
day morning had a beneficial effect upon busi?
ness m the handsome retail establishments of |
Sing street. The decided weather seemed to
inspire the flair shoppers with renewed ener?
gy and impress upon them the importance of j
malting their winter parchase?. Bright eyes,
purple noses and flushed cheeks were tbe or?
der of the day, and the busy throng never
ceased during the midday boura to circulate
through the street. A crowded King street
ls a ture sign of prosperity. When the ladles
become busy it may be safely inferred that
the lords of creation on Hay ne street and the
Bay are able to furnish the sinews of war.
RSAL ESTATE SALES.-The following city
real estate waa sold yesterday morning, at
public auction, by Messrs. Leitch A Bruns :
Vacant lot on the west aide o? Kassau street,
between Line and Columbas streets, for $240;
one-half cash, and the balance in one and two

street, between King and St Phillp, twenty
five feet front by one hundred and twenty-five
feet deep, for $880, cash.
Lot with two-story wooden residence, on
the northwest corner ot Wilson and Mag?
azine streets, thirty nine and a half feet front
by one hundred and thirty-three feet deep, for
^$1205; one-haif cash, and the ba'ance in one
^nd two years.
PISTOLS AND THE POLICE.-On Monday after?
noon, a considerable stir was raised on More?
land's wharf, on Sorith Bay, by a quarrel be?
tween Stephen Marshall and Tony Roach,
both colored. The wharf aa usual was crowd?
ed with visitors ?rom the country and their
produce, and over a bargain relating to the
liker the quarrel arose. As Tony made his
pugilistic demonstrations, Marshall drew a re?
volver, and presenting lt at his antagonist,
threatened to shoot. No discharge followed,
but the action created a hubbub seldom made
on the wharf. The police came quickly on the
scene, and arrested the combatants. Stephen
was locked up. and his case came before the
Mayor yesterday morning. The pistol was
produced, and proved to be so covered with
rust as to be perfectly harmless. After hear?
ing the rest of the evidence, the prisoner was
OBSEQUIES OP BISHOP DAVIS.-The funeral
of the Bight Rev. Thomas F. Davis, which took
place at two o'clock on Monday afternoon, in
Camden, was attended by most of the Episco?
pal Clergy from this city. The services were
conducted by the Right Rev.'W. B. W. Howe,
assisted by the Rev. John Johnson-the
Revs. Dr. A. W. Marshall, W. O. Prentiss,
james H. Eiiiotr, B. B. Babbit, Winiam
H. Hanokel and' John Johnson, and
Messrs. L. H. Deas, M. D., and J. B. Kershaw,
wardens of Gr ice Church, acting aa pall bear?
ers. Part ot the services were performed in
the church and part at the grave in the ceme?
tery. The body was interred two miles from
tbe town by the side of the late bishop's eldest
son, who was also a minister. The remains
were followed to their resting place by a large
concourse, and the bells ol the Presbyterian
and Methodist Churches of the town were
to?ed in honor of the honored dead.
THE OAKLEY MURDER.
Tne trial of Samuel White, Raa Balden.
Buddy Raveael and George Parker, charged
with the murder of W. B. Fidea, ia October
Inst, at Oakley Station, on the Northeastern '
Railroad, was opened yesterday morning.
Tbe greater portion of the day was occupied
in forming a jury, and this important step was
atteadeJwllh considerable difficulty. What
with peremptory challenges and challenges
for cause by the prisoners and the State, the
original panel of thirty jurors was exhausted,
and only six jurors had been chosen and ac- j
cepted. The statute requires that at least
seven jurors shall be chosen from the original
panel, and this obstacle threatened to put I
an end to the case for the present. His Honor
had already ordered a mistrial, when the soli?
citor for the State and C. W. Buttz and H. W.
Sohroder, Esq?., attorneys for the defence,
agreed to reconsider a peremptory challenge
and chose the so vent h juror from the old
paael. The jurors oa the special venire ofone
hundred, ordered to be summoned for this
case, were then called, and after twenty chal?
lenges tie jury was formed. M fellows: A. E.
f h'lippy, foreman; James Thomas, J. M. Reed,
John Taylor, Mose_3 Bucklojr.ham. Moses D.
"Brawn* Wm. Spencer, George.Watkins, Wm.
Murrell, Edward Snlley, H. L. Beni ford, and
The grounds ol objection against the jurors
were various, and they were each-questioned
by the opposing attorneys as they came up to
ba sworn. Some admitted that they had ob- j
-jections to inflicting capital punishment, and
this, in the present case, was considered a
goo3 objection. Generally they were ordered
to 6tand aside for having read the sworn de?
positions before the trial justices ia the papers
and f ormed an op'nion therefro n as to the
guilt or Innocence of the prisoners. The fol-"
lowing witnesses were examined: D. Rh ame.
Pr. Porcher, Jas. E. Wright^ H. B. Picken?
pack and J. A. Mushlngton. They proved
merely the death of Mr. Fidea, the nature of
the wounis which caused his death, and the
discovery of blood upon certain garments
which were worn by Anthony Thompson on
the night of the murder. These matters occn
pied the court up to the hour of adjournment,
three o'clock P. M. Toe trial will be resumed
at ten o'clock this morning.
THE SIKQKB SEWING MACHTE COMPANY.
! This energetic company? have opened
agency in thlstclty, at No. 197 King street,
and a stylish turnout, consisting of a light
wagon, handsomely painted aod lettered,
forms one of the most noticeable adjuncts of |
the establishment. The Singer machine has
won new laurels in the shape ot medals at the
Georgia fairs, and any one doubting its
merits should proceed to interview Mr. J.
Bedell, agent, at No. 197 King street.
DR. N. A. PRATT.-Among the late arrivals
In our city we are pleased to notice the
presence in our midst of our esteemed lei: ow
citizen, who has returned, after a twelve
month's absence, to his borne. Dr. Pratt, it
will be remembered, was the first discoverer
of phosphates In our midst, and his caret ul
analysis of the wealth of these discoveries, to?
gether with hts scientific adaptation of them
as fertilizers, has been a source of revenue to
our down-trodden Slate. This gentleman has
spent the last twelve months in bringing to j
the ai tendon of European capitalists the value
of our resource?, and already bas his labor
been crowned with abundant success. We
learn that he has visited, during hit absence
from us, most ot the manufacturing cities of |
Great Britain, and his explorations have been
extended to the Continent of Europe. We
henceforward trust to find Russia. Germany
and Switzerland as customers of our phospha?
te resource?. As a pioneer in our own Imme?
diate prosperity we recognize Dr. Pratt as one
of the founders of the Charleston Mining and
Manufacturing Company of our city, (but |
owing to our impoverished condition now
transferred to Philadelphia,) .and the able
chemist of the Sulphuric Acid and Manufactu?
ring Company, ia operation here, under the
skilful and discreet management of the Hon.
C. G. Memmioger. We sincerely trust that Dr.
Pratt's efforts abroad will ba attended with

The grand Ju.y for the November term, 1871,
would respectfully return the following as- their
presentment : That they have, in accordance
with the Instructions of the court, visited and ex?
amined the several public offices, and would
state, as the resin or their Investigations, that
they visited the office of the clerk of the court
and found the same kept In a neat a d creditable
manner. They also visited the Jail, and found
the building in good onditlou, excepting the
leaks from the water pip- sr and would again
bring the matter to the attention of th e county
commissloaers. The prisoners aro unprovided
with blankets, and we were Informed (hat the
sheriff was unable to get a supply owing to the 1
want of ineans,.aod ;hat he had been unable to
get any money from the connty commissioners
for the ti le tr ? ol prisoners for the current year.
They also visited the Colored Orpbanhouse in
George street, and found lt unsuited for the pur?
pose, and we would urse a special appropriation
by the Legislature or $30.00 to pur hase a farm,
and to ere ct BU-table buildings thereon, so as to
make the Institution atmest self-supporting. The
ohlloren are in want nf shoes, ic. The cooking
arrangements are defective, and an entire new
outfit ls neceas irv. The water closets are In a
deplorable condition, and need Immediate atten?
tion. The s hool funds ard Insufficient for the
couuty, as on y one-tenth of the voters pay their
poll tax. Ont or sixteen tho usa:, a to elgbt.cn
thousand voters In this county, only eighteen
hundred dollars was collected, ai shown by the
treasurer's books. We h J VJ given our attention
I to the financial condition of this count v. and can
Ond no vsine improvement since our last ie
port. The debt ot this county ls as follows :
Old county check, Issued prior to July,
Vouchers in county commissioners, not
Various claims aagainst county. 33,000
The latter claim ls approximate only, but is cer?
tainly over $15,000.
Owing to the above amount of indebtedness,
claims on the county sell from twenty to
fifty per cent discount, and patties fur?
nishing supplies mus. cnarge pro rata to
cover themselves. We would suggest that all
claims should be passed monthly, by the county
commissioners, and audited by the county audi?
tor, who should keep a record or the same. The
checks should be Issued by the county commis?
sioners according to the date of purchase or ser?
vices rendered, and that the treasurer should be
Tarnished with the monthly 1 st or checks Issued,
and to pay the same according to date, p u bu - hing
in the dally papers the numbera ami amount total
that he can pay from fonds In his possession.
Unless some change ls soon made, lt will be al
mon impossible to get toe necessary supplies for
the county, as the treasurer will not have over
$100.000 or this year's taxe* to meet al! Uabllirles.
We also visited the office of mesne conveyance,
and we found several ul their books ia a dilapi?
dated condition: valuable record books and plats
all torn and without blading. We would recom?
mend an appropriation of three thousand dollars
for absolute repairs, la ot der to save valuable
documents from total los?. The grand Jury would

pended. Moulton Emery and Morton N. waring,
M. D.. ex-school commissioners for this county,

The grand jory were then discharged by -his
Honor, with thanks for the promptness and
energy with which they bad disposed of the
business before them.
The court then proceeded with thc trial of |

adjourned at three o'clock P. M. until ten
o'clock ibis morning.

TRIBUTE OE RESPECT.
At the regular monthly meeting of the Pal?
metto Steam Fire Engine Company, held at their
hall on Monday evening, 4th mst, the following
preamble and resolutions were unanimously
Whereas, The Angel or Death has again entered
our ranks and removed from our midst our late |
brother fireman, Michael B. Regan. Suffering for j
many mon : .:s with a disease wbloh he bore with
Christian fortitude, he was at last carried away
by a merciful Saviour to a brighter and happier
land to enjoy the kingdom or his Heavenly Father.
Always ready at the call of danger, by his actions
he merited the esteem and good will of his fellow
associates. By his death this company has lost a
faithful fireman and devoted member, and the
community a good and upright citizen. Since he
ls gone and we will see him no more, we humbly
submit to the decree of that Supreme Being who
does all things wisely. In the death of our late
brother we do deplore his loss, and we tender to
the family of the deceased our heartfelt sympa?
thy In this the sad hour of the r bereavement.
May his EOOI rest in peace.
Resolved, That a blank page in our minute book
be dedicated to his memory.
Resolved, That this company wear the usual
badge of mourning on tbelr next parade.
Resolved, That a copy or these resolutions be
seat to the family of the deceased and the same
be published m one of the dally papers of this city.
