WARDS OF THB POLICE COURT.-Like the
wards of chancery they are always under age,
but, unlike these, they are never Interested in
an estate. Where they come from few people
know, but they generally make themselves
heard at early dawn, enveloped In blankets,
shawls, ?c., upon the door-step of some
honest and innocent individual. Nobody's
children are Immediately put upon the city,
and hence these unwelcome strangers usually
come blinking into the police court. They are
on the decrease now. The elly at present has
four-three colored and one white. The white
one ls a girl, and two of the others are boys.
They date their age like a writ, from tbe day
they come into court, and they pick np names
where they can. They are bardy little
beings, and seldom die like other children.
In tact, they take a pleasure in living, and ?
measles dont seem to affect them. The eldest |
on hand is Just three years old, and the young?
est was picked up five mornings ago at the
street-door of a house in Bose lane. They are
Inspected once a month by the officer of the
police, and on this occasion they and their
foster mothers show to great advantage.
They arrive of age before chancery wards, and
il nQt adopted by somebody.generally find their
way 'to the Orphanhouse. They cease to be
wards of the police court when they begin to
talk and walk.

A CADEMY OF MUSIC.
The tragedy of Mary Stuart was repeated
last night before a full, though not a crowded
house. The acting of Madame Janauschek
was even better than on her first appearance
here In the part. '
Thia gifted lady may congratulate herself
upon having drawn together the largest audi?
ence ever assembled within the four walls of
the CharlestonfAcademy of Music. On Thurs?
day evening no less than seventeen hundred
persons, by actual count, witnessed her Lady
Macbeth. Thia was two hundred in excess of
what had hitherto been deemed the utmost f
capacity of the building. The extra crowd-1
lng was mainly In the family circle and
among the "gods." The cash receipts on that j
o/ening were fifteen hundred dollars, the
largest receipt s ata single entertainment of j
any kind in Charleston eince the war. There |
was some grumbling among those who found
only standing room In the parquette, because
the management would not allow chaira to be
placed In the aisles for their accommodation;
but a moment's reflection should convince all
that every consideration of safety and justice
to those holding reserved seats forbids any
such obstruction of the means ot egress.
There is to be a Chesney Wold matinee this
afternoon, and Winter's Tale will be given
this evening, wfth Janauschek as Hermione.

How TO SLEEP COMFORTABLY.-The furni?
ture trade have, for years, found lt difficult to
recommend any bed which seemed to combine
all the advantages one desires In an article
put to such constant use as a spring bed. But
the newly introduced Wire-woven Mattress
seems at last to supply the want. It consists
of a Btrong fabric, formed of nine thousand
feet of fine tinned wire, colled into perfect
springs, and all Interlocked by an ingenious
process cf double weaving. When this pliable
and elastic fabric is stretched on its proper
frame, the result is the most perfect sleeping
arrangement ever made. Among theBpecial
advantages claimed tor this mattress are : 1st.
That they never lose their shape. 2d'. That I
they never need a repair. 3d. That lliey never J
make a noise. They are warranted to be as
perfectly level at the end of Ave years as when
first made, and to stand the teat of one thou?
sand pounds weight for ten days. No under
bed ol any kind is ever needed, and being In
many cases a perfect sleeping appliance, with
the addition of a blanket, a thinner mattress
than can be used under aoy other circumstan?
ces ls sufficient. On this account, and by rea.
son of their extreme durability lt ls claimed
that they are the cheapest bed In market. Be?
ing made only of metal and wood, no Impurity
or odor can gather on or about them, while
the single thin mattress Is easily handled on
them and aired. The agency of this new and
valuable household institution is at SIlcox's
Furniture Warerooms, corner King and Clif?
ford streets, where the mattresses can be in?
