misunderstood, and -that the government em?
ployees put in the number of hours per day
exacted in the different cities where they are
employed. He compliments his late em?
ployees on their efficiency and skilful work?
manship, but thinks that a compliance with

and work disastrously upon other employers.

MARCH. COMES IN LIKE A LION.
A Furious Gale-Its EAT. ct s tn the City
and Harbor-Tue Incoming Steamers
-A Storm along th? Entire Coast
The Damage Elsewhere.
March has fairly "come In like a lion." On
Friday morning last a strong breeze prevailed
from the northeast which kept Increasing
during the day, and towards evening had at?
tained the force of a gale, accompanied by
soaking rain squalls. As night advanced the
wind stiffened, and towards midnight lt blew
with intense power, maintaining its force un?
til about three o'clock Saturday morning when
it changed to north and west and moderated.
The greatest strength of the gale was from
twelve midnight Friday until about two A. M.
Saturday, the wind blowing heaTiest from
about east northeast, at which time the smaller
vessels on the eastern side of the city were
pitching bows under, and the waves had great
size and force? Had this state of thc wind
continued the amount of damage would have
been considerable, but being of short duration
most of the larger vessels, escaped with tri?
fling damage. The British bark Architect,
Captain Doddridge, lying at the head of Mar?
shall's wharf, waB exposed to the fury of the
blow, and, notwithstanding tbe persevering
efforts of the officers and crew, the broadside
of the bark was forced on to the wharf, and
she was much chafed and her planking in?
jured. A large sloop was* driven from off
Southern wharf across the Ashley, and is now
a wreck on the marsh off James Island. A
waterboat, (sloop,) which was moored at the
end of South Commercial wharf, broke Its
fastenings through the violence of the storm,
and was driven up to the head of Southern
dock. It thumped here violently until the
mast went over with a crash, falling upon the
wharf and crushing a small boat. The sloop
was secured as the tide receded, but
is badly damaged. A schooner was
driven on Sui ivan's leland beach. She
is now aground among the breakers.
Many of the smaller craft in the docks broke
their fastening3, and were damaged in hull,
spars and rigging. The pilot boat Atlanta,
Captain McDonald, fortunately made the har?
bor just as the gale was becoming severe, and
got to an anchor In the roads, but had great
difficulty in keeping ber moorings, and loBt an
anchor. He reports the gale as extremely
heavy. The schooner Mary E. Collins, from
Greenport, L. I., came to an anchor off the
harbor Just as_the blow was commencing, and
lost an anchor and sixty fathom? of chain.
All the vessels arriving report heavy gales,
and the weather as sharp and trying. The
steamships Manhattan from New Tork and
Maryland from Ballimore had fearful seas and
heavy gales during nearly the whole passage.
The Storm at New Tork.
The blow was felt along the whole Northern
Atlantic coast. Telegrams received Indicate
that the usual steamship departures from
New Tork were deferred on account of the
storm there. Among the steamships so detain?
ed lathe mammouth steamship Georgia, with a
large cargo and Atty passengers, for this port.
The Georgia's cargo Indicates the first
heavy movement ol spring goods over the
popular Charleston route to the. South, and
we bave no doubt succeeding arrivals will
increase the volume ol business, as cotton'ie
paying well. Deliveries on this line are quick ;
and lhere ls no chance to getu p any yellow
fever reports at this season of the year.
The Storm at Other Points. *
SAVANNAH, March 2.
A severe rain and wind storm occurred last
night. Two ships, two barks and five Balloon?
ers were driven from their moorings. The
damage was very slight, excepting to the
hoisting;machine on the Ballimore steamship"
wharf, which was totally destroyed.
RICHMOND, March 2.
The severest storm since January, 1857, Is
now prevailing. It has been snowing heavily for
twelve hours and still continues, with wind
from the northwest blowing a hurricane and
the snow drifting accordingly.
WASHINGTON, March 2.
The severest snow sjorm that has been
known here for years prevailed all day. ?
ATTEMPT AT SUICIDE.-Yesterday morning
a white man named Thomas Clark, about
sixty years of age, attempted to commit
suicide by cutting his throat with a razor, at
his boarding bouse In Meeting street, near the
workshops of the South Carolina Railroad.
He draw the edge of the razor across his
windpipe, close under the chin, and was
bleeding profusely when Borne women dis?
covered him and gave the alarm. Surgeon
Ancrum was at once called in, and the wound
was sewed up promptly. The blade had not
gone deep, and though the gash seemed to be
a fearful one, there was little cut besides the
skin. The patient was soon talking, and Is
now doing well. His friends say Clark.has
been dejected for some time, on account ot the
death of his wife, and he says he has been
Ill-used. He had been drinking, and wanted
to end all of nie sorrows at once. He re?
marked that lt took a strong hand to cut a
throat, for he had drawn the knife across bis
as heavily as he could.

How TO UTILIZE THE ARTESIAN WELL.-D.
W. A., In the March number of the Bural
Carolinian, suggests a way of turning to
account the Artesian well property, which
now is of Infinitesimal value to the city. He
"There is a plethora In the money market."
This ls the news I heard In Charleston in
January, but alas! for us poor farmers, such
news brings no relief. The plethora only re?
mains witn those whose dally vocation ls to
look out lor counterfeits. If this condition of
things existed ia fact in Charleston, there is
much roorr. for ease, for almost every corner
in the city ask for investment, but none more
so than tbe Artesian well corner, where the
ragged tout ensemble of board fence, skeleton
scaffolding, water trough and loquacious dray?
men cry aloud for Internal improvement.
If some of the idle money In the banks were
invested in a capacious bathing saloon at this
DOlnt it would receive remunerative custom
nine months In the year. Thousands of In?
valid Northern travellers would sojourn in
Charleston if such a luxury were economically
afforded them. The therapeutic qualities of
that water are little known at present, but
were opportunily offered to give it reputation,
outsiders would inform the denizens of the city
what a luxury and a treasure they have In
This water should certainly be utilized by the
city. If not as above recommended, why
could lt not be the means of establishing a
laundry in the elly where money could be
made, and every man's clothing in the city
waBhed, starched and ironed for half the
present cost, and with much less liability to
be lost or stolen ? I am told clothes worn in
Mllwankleare often washed in Detroit, pev
eral hundreds of miles off. Why should
Charleston not wash clothes worn in Colum?
XffJE YOUNO MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSO?
A Highly Interesting Meeting.
The permanent reorganization of the Tonng
Men'd Christian Association was effecte? on
Saturday evening last, at the rooms on King
street. At the appoluted hour Mr. Joseph
Whl?den took the chair, and called upon the
Bev. Mr. Smart to open the meeting with
prayer, after which Mr. Wbilden congratulated
the associa1 ion upon its choice of officers, and
invited Hon. C. G. Memmlnger to aBsume the
duties of president
Colonel Memuainger in t ak i nz the chair
returned thanks for the honor conferred upon
him, and addressed the association at some
length. He referred to the great work that
was being entered upon, and called attention
to the many difficulties that would be met,
and must be surmounted, lt success should be
theirs-difficulties Inward and outward. But
when he alluded to outward difficulties, he did
not mean only the gaming house or drinking
saloon. He pointed out many obstacles to be
overcome, and dwelt upon the literature of |
the day, more especially scientific literature.
He showed the necessity of meeting every
quesiion;that geology or other science might
advance, with Bible truths.
In conclusion, he said he took his position
as did St. Paul of old, but as St. Paul had the
support of his younger brother Timothy, so
he needed the support of every member of |
the association. Faithful co-operation of all
the younger members would make them all
feel youthful, and prepare them for the mil
lions upon millions of years of undying youth
they were ti spend beyond the grave.
Upon the call of the president, the secretary
called tbe roll of officers elect, as follows: S.
A. NelsoD, first vice-president; J. N. RobBon,
second vice-president; S. Hyde, third vice
president; W. C. Bee, fourth vice-president;
R. G. Chlsolm, uah vice-president; F. A. Sil
coi, recording secretary; J. B. Haskell, cor-1
responding secretary; E. E. Sell, treasurer.
Ihe meeting was then addressed by vice
President Nelson. He declared himself to be
a worker, not a speaker, and pledged himself I
to use every effort to promote the success of ]
vice-President Bee also addressed the meet?
ing. He conceived that there was no time
when an organization of thia kind was more
needed than at present. Vices never walked
forward more boldly, and intemperance never
went forth more unblushingly, and lt was In?
deed necessary that some action be taken for
the safety of our young men.
vice-President Hobson concurred in all that
had been Bald, and was willing to put his
shoulder to the wheel and do his utmost in
carrying out the objects for which|they were
After the transaction of the regular busi-1
ness the meeting adjourned, with prayer by
Mr. George S. Cook.
THE LAUHE.N'3 ROAD. -The Laurens Herald
says that Mr. H. T. Peake, who bas Inspected
the Laurens Road, Is of opinion that It can be
put in running order by July. The Herald
Mr. Peake will make a report at once to
President Magrath In regard to the road, when
the work will doubtless commence as soon as
hands can be procured, which will doubtless
require but Utile time, as we have heard of arl
number who are holding themselves in readi?
ness to go to work. Mr. Peake has large ex?
perience in railroading, having been general
superintendent of the South Carolina Railroad
for some fourteen or fifteen years, and withal
a practical machinist and engineer-in short,
he ls a railroad man in every sense of the
word, and lt is a matter of congratulation
with our citizeos that such an one is to take
our railroad In hand.

A FOOTPAD AT WORK.
Attempted Robbery on the ' Street-The
Would-be Robber Catches a Tartar.
Thursday night a most outrageous assault
and attempt to rob was perpetrated upon i
well known gentleman of this city in a thor?
oughfare so frequented as the corner of Cal?
houn and Rutledge streets. The gentleman
had taken the last Rutledge street car going
up town, which leaves the old Postofflce at}
nine P. M., and bad'Jumped out In Calhoun
street, as the car turned into Rutledge
avenue. He walked up on the north side
of Calhoun street, and was passing beneath
the portico of the Rev. Mr. LaPar's dwell?
ing, when a white man darted from
behind one of the supporting pillars and
snatched his watch. In doing this the ruffian
also struck the gentleman heavily. The lat?
ter, nothing daunted, returned the compli?
ment, and gave bis assailant several blows in
the face, which bled freely. By this time, the
highwayman began to suspect that he had got
hold of the wrong man, and, tearing loose
from the hold of his intended victim, thc vil?
lain ran off across the bridge down Butledge
street. He was chased by tbe gentleman,
who shouted for the police to no purpose,
and the robber made good bis escape. The
pursuer returned to the scene of the encoun?
ter, and, aRer hunting awhile, found his watch
lying upon the sidewalk, where It had been
dropped by the disconcerted robber. It ls
supposed that the assailant must have used a
knife, as the gentleman's hand was cut to the
bone In several places. The affair took place
about half-past nine o'clock, and when the
street car was not one hundred yards off. It
seems to bave been a deliberate plan to rob,
and Is certainly one of the most daring out?
rages which has startled our community for
some time past_
