The day was warm and pleasant, and w.
unusual an exhibition in prospect, numb?
citizens waited along the sidewalks of Me
street to see the gallant company marci
They rode In single file upon their prai
chargers, and were preceded by a large wi
drawn by four fine horses decorated witt
tl-colored plumes. In the wagon wast
band of music, which enlivened the mar
airs, amusing and sentimental. The kn
followed slowly behind, sixteen in nui
under the command of Herald Jame!
Nelson, with whom rode Surgeon Ancrun
The column marched up Meeting to B
through Hasel to King, and up King tc
Fair Grounds, attracting much admiratioi
attention on their way. They were all in
turne, and with their floating plumes,
spangles and lace and velvet bravery, ma
sensation among the ladies.
The sound or their coming had prec
them to the Fair Grounds, and a crowd
present to welcome them as they filed
the gate and halted in front of the large b
lng. On the balcony were a number of la
'and out in the field, along the Une of th?
Ing-course, were numerous vehicles
ed with ladles and gentlemen,
knights were allowed a half hour to
pare, and then formed near the course,
was a straight and level stretch of about
hundred and fifty yards. The first ring

looking E true tn re about seven) y-flve yards 1
the starting point. The other structures \
along the course, the second being tw
yards from the first, and the third twi
yards beyond. By the rules agreed to,
distance of three hundred and seventy
feet was to begone over in nine second
less; the rlbgs were each to count one; i
knight was to have three tilts, and If
dropped his lance or the ring from the p
after carrying lt the count was lost. The b
Iron rings, one inch and a half in diam?
were then hung in position, and the kni|

The Knights of Eutaw, (Mr. Conner,

both carried four rings, the judges decU
that they ahould ruc, a single course for l
first prize. This being done, Eutaw and
John's failed in taking off a ring, but Pino;
Us carried the first one and was awarded l
Another course was ordered between Eut,
and St. John's for the second prize, and Eut
tilted first. The Iron hooks to which the rio
were hung had been befare objected to
some of the knights as dangerous, as t
sequel showed they were right. The knlg
Etruck the two first rings, but tailed to cai
.them. He addressed hlB lance to the thi
ring and struck the lion hook fairly in the cc
tre. The metal broke like a dried stick, ai
a piece ol lt struck the knight on ;he fat
giving him a sharp cut on the cheek, Just mil
lng the right eye. Surgeon Ancrum was ca

tended to the wounded knight. The accide
created some excitement, but the ring havli
been placed In ""position, the Knight nf ?
John's ran his course, and having taken <
one ring, was awarded the second prize.
The fourth prize for horsemanship was mo
difflcdlt to be awarded. Th? knights, in tur
galloped over the course, and having be?
then drawn up lb front of the Judge's stan
the prizes were awarded as lollowa :

Knight of Eutaw.
Tne fourth prize, a silver cup, was decide
bv the Judges to lie between the Knights i
Chaneston and Fairfield, and ordered them i
run a lilt for lt. The Knight of Charleston di
dared that, as the originator and manager <
the Tournament, he had not intended to coi
tend for any ot the prizes, and positively d
clined to Ult for this one. The prize was tbe
awarded to the Knight of Fairfield.
The day was now declining, and the crow
o? vehicles and pedestrians began to move o
the grounds. The array of knights was con
posed principally of gentlemen from lb
country, and the air of busifiess about tb
affai r extinguished the romance which mlgt
have mingled with the occasion. This we

among the manners who visit the city.
THE JET?U KALL.-The first annual soiree of |
the .ffitna Steam-Fire Engine Company took
place last evening at their hall in Queen
street, and proved a most delightful success.
The adjoining hall of Hook and Ladder Com?
pany, No. 1, was thrown open, and with a fine
band of music stationed In the connecting
doorway, afforded a splendid space for tue
terpsichorean pleasures of the evening. The
hall was brilliantly illuminated, and a large
number of the fair sex had prepared them?
selves lor the conquests and enjoyments which
the occasion seemed to portend. Although
they bad lain aside their red coats, the boys
retained all the Joyous spirits they usually
covered, and with Just an agreeable competi?
tion for partners, the evening sped pleasantly
away. The season has been handsomely In?
augurated by the .Etnas, and not one of the
young ladies who attended the ball, and are
able to read this In the morning, will refuse
to call lt one of the pleasantest entertainments
they ever were at.
THE ACADEMY OF Mosio.-The. announce?
ment yesterday, that instead of the concerts
the WatklnB Troupe would give a performance
at the Academy, to which the tlc!:et-holders
In the prize scheme would be admitted free,
spreai through the city like wildfire, and ear- j
ly In the evening lhere was a rush for the
seats, the like ol which was never dreamed of |
by the most enthusiastic of agents and mana?
gers. The orchestra choir and parquette
were s.oon filled, bul the crowd kept pouring
in a; if the Academy was an India rubber'
bail, which could stretch out and accommo?
date any number. The whole space was soon
j Jammed with the crowd, and In the aisles and
near the walla a dense mass of faces met the
view. The doors fjr twenty feet out were
wedged up with those pushing to get in, and
hundreds turned away In disgust. The galle?
ries were a living mass, and In every available
standing place In the house was a pair of feet
which the owner could hardly swear to as he
was swayed backwards and forwards by the
crowd. The play "Kathleen Mavourneen" has
been given here before, but a more apprecia?
tive house the.Watklnses never had, to say no?
thing of its size. The troupe were inspired by
the scene and played with a spirit aod cor- J
redness which evoked from time to time I
thundering applause. Between the first and
second ar.? the Tumbleronlcon prevailed, and
the audience were In raptures. Altogether
the monster house was in a most pleasant
humor, and thoroughly enjoyed the entertain?
ment. The Watklnses appear again this even?
ing in the thrilling drama of Norah O'Neil.
