THE SHOPPING SEASON.-With every bright
day in the bracing weather which we are now
having the streets assume an unusually gay
and lively aspect. This was notably the case
yesterday, when crowds of pedestrians were
drawn .'orin to enjoy the Invigorating air and
to see the attractive sights which the shop
windows are presenting In preparation for the
Christmas and New Year holidays. The period
of gifts and ol social festivities ls at hand, and
the usual variety and skill are exhibited by
the artists whose fabrics are displayed In the
shop windows. The difficulty attending pur?
chasers at this Urne Is to decide upon a suit
able selection, and, of late, the usefulness of a
Christmas present, as well as Its beauty, has
become an element of the choice by practical
ani sensible people. To obtain the necessary
informai ion on these points, and on all others
connected with such gifts, the public are ac?
customed to look to the advertising column;
of THE NEWS, where ihe best dealers and those
-iW.-lng the cheapest and most varied stocks ol
articles suitable for presents and other auxil'
aries of the festive enjoyments of the season,
take care to set them forth and annonnce tnt
places where they may be lound.
"Faust" at the Academy.
Some disappointment waa caused to toe au?
dience at the Academy of Music, last night, by
the announcement, made just before the rising
of the curialn, that Mr. Habelmann was pre?
vented by indisposition from appearing as
Faust. Mr. Beaunard had kindly consented, at
extremely short notice, to take Mr. Habel
mann's place, and it is ?u?: to him to sty that,
under highly unfavorable circumstances, he
acquitted himself handsomely.
The Marguerite of Mlle. Rosea i, whoFO ver?
satility equa's her artistic conscientiousness,
was especially good lu the hf h act. At this
climactic point, both the singing and acting
of Mlle. Ro3etti were admirable. Mlle. Dzitiba
was ca?t for Seibel, and her rendering of the
melodious Flower Song wns delicious. The
Valentine was Mr. Wilhelm Formes, who ls a
finished actor as well as a ?ne singer. In the
fourth-act, his aetlng was such as is rarely
seen upon the lyilc stage; and his rich voice
and excellent method were conspicuous
throughout the opera. Mlle. Predtgam; as
Marta, produced a good Impression upon the
The Mephistophilcs of Mr. Carl Formes, the
central figure In the operatic picture, Is a very
striking conception. There are, as all are
supposed to know, many kinds of dev.il?.
And the Mephistopheles of Mr. Formes is as
dlflerent trom the chevaleresque fiend who
would toast his victims io a delicate brown,
on a gilded fork, as from "Auld Hornle" with
his barbed tail and unequivocal hoof. It is a
mocking, scoffing spirit who Is with thc
world, and not of it; wh> fulfils his part
of. the agreement, and exacts bis dues to
the last farthing; who has no pily for
the fallen, and 3 et has a certain sympathy
with the dauntless old man whom the fair face
of Marguerite leads to destruction. The char?
acter, so conceived, was played with an atten?
tion to detail and a dramatic vigor worthy of
allpra!6J. And the vocalization was exceed?
ingly floe. The difficult song lo the second
act, and the diabolical serenade In the fourth
act, were splendidly sung; the last named re?
ceiving a heari y encore.
Both orehestraand chorus were upon (heir
good behavior. The former played the florid
accompainments with charming effect, and
the choral case ont In fall loree In the well
known chorus of soldiers. It was, all in all,
a good rendering of one of the most attrac?
tive of modern operes, and the audience
showed their satisfaction by calling Mile. Ro?
set tl and Means. Carl and Wilhelm Formes
and Mr. Beaunard before the curtain.
To-night Atlber's ?Vo2Hovo/o will be played.
Mr. Theodore Habe.^ann will positively ap?
pear ss. the romantic hero, and Messrs. Carl
and Wilhelm Formes will appear as the two
bandits. The cast ls a strong one, a d toe
opera Hs -if ls foll of melodious life.
Shaketpeare at lite Academy.
The lovers of the legitimate drama will ho
glad to hear that Mr. Harry Seymour, assisted
by Miss Effie Johns and a corps of twenty
artist11, will give six Shakespearian entertain?

tion, the memorial was refeired lo the special

ed by the Board.
A letter from the president o? the Board ol
Trade of Talladega, Alabama, was read, re?
lating to the completion of the Great Western
Railroad, and pointing out the Increasing
trade cf Talladega, and the cr. at Importance
to Charleston and the South Carolina Railroad
of securing this direct route from Atlanta to
the Mississippi River. The matter was re?
ferred, on motion, to the executive committee
A communication from the Board of Trade
of Columbia was read, calling attention to the
great sun*, ring and loss of property entailed
upon the State by the Intervention of the Fed?
eral military, wnlcb was brought about by the
exaggerated statements of designing persons.
It stated that the civil power was tully ade?
quate to the preservation of law and order,
and In the absence ol a controlling State
power the board applied directly to President
Grant for a mitigation of the evil. No move?
ment being requested by the Charleston
Board, the matter was received as Informa?
Met-srs. W. W. Memminger and M. Haig
were then unanimously elected members of
the Board of Trade.
The request of the executive committee of
the. Taxpayers' Conveutlon having been
brought up for discussion, the appointment of
the three delegates was left to the chair, who
appoiuted Messrs. George A. Treuholm Geo.
W. Williams and Edwin Bates.
In regard to the Metropolitan police bill,
Mr. Hastie read a memorial which he had
druwn up, informing the Legh-lat ure that the
majority of the citizens were fully satisfied
with ihe present police system, and praying
that the bill might not be passed. On motion,
the memorial was ordered to be forwarded to
the Legislature as coming from the Board of
Trade ot Charleston.
On motion, the meeting then adjourned.

A WOULD-BE INCENDIARY.
Stealing from a Hame and then Setting
Fire to lt.
Lost Ties lay morning lue family ol N.
Grant, residing in his house on Middle street,
were awakened from their slumbers by a
sense of suffocation, and, on Investigation, lt
was found that some one had fired thc house
on the lower floor. A saia'l fire had been
kindled on the floor of ihe parlor, and It was
burning flt rcely and rapidly spreading when
discovered. It was at once extinguished be?
t?re any other damage had been done other
than the small hoi* burnt in the floor,
further examination showed that James W.
Carmichael, a colored boy staying with the
famly, had disappeared alon? with a lot of val?
uable clothing of various kinds.
The matter was reported at once at the De?
tective office, and In the evening o? the Borne
day the chief, accompanied by an officer, went
up about twenty-live miles on the Northeast?
ern Railroad, and arrested Carmichael as he
sat warming himself in a cabin, preparatory
to a ircsh start. All cf the stolen clothing
was found in the possession of the prisoner,
who at once confessed his guilt, and said he
wa3 sorry for it. He admitted that be had
fired the house in order that his theltof the
clothing might not be d'scover?d. He was
brought down to the city, and the case having
come before the Mayor, was referred by him to
a (rial Justice for examination.
