The winter is over and the first stir of travel
shows Itself on the New York steam lines,
which annually attract great crowds of trav?
ellers who are returning to Northern homes
from a winter pojourn in Dixie. The steam-1 t

How A Row ENDED.-On Wednesday night ?
a young man named W. D. Gaugh went into a r
store at the corner of Amherst and America
streets, to see about some money said to be e
due him by R. Deignan. The two quarrelled, f
and began to scuffle, when Delgnan's brother, c
and two other men, joined in the fight against .
the unlucky Gaugh. The latter was beaten t
severely, and got ont of the store as soon as .
he could, without his money. The Deignan v
brothers were brought before Trial Justice A
M. Mackey yesterday, and were fined; the one
two dollars and costs, and the other, who
helped his brother, one cent and costs. Each
had the choice of paying up or spending ten
days In Jail._

THE WOES OF A SLUMBERING BROTHER.
Last Tuesday night, Moses Brown, a colored
man, took the steamer from Edlsto Island tor
the city, with lorty-three dollars of church
money In his pocket, to be invested In build
lng material. - During the trip, Moses became
drowsy, and lay down to sleep on the warm
flooring just over the boiler. He awoke after
a sound nap, to find the forty-three dollars
gone from his breeches pocket. He Immedi?
ately collared a colored man, named Louis
Jenkins, who was sleeping Innocently at bis
Bide,' and charged him with the theft. The
two were separated with some difficulty, but
Moses, as soon as he reached the city, had
Jenkins arrested for larceny. The case was
examined before Trial Justice A. M. Mackey. | ?
The money could not be found, aed there
being no evidence against Jenkins to sustain |1
Moses's grave suspicions, he was dismissed.
Moses is in a quandary about making matters
right with the church.
THE KX-KLUX PRISONERS.-Considerable ex-11
citement prevailed on King Btreet yesterday
afternoon when lt was known that a batch of
Ku-Klux prisoners, In charge of the marshal's
deputy, J. B. Sherman, was being taken to the
depot of the South Carolina Railroad. The pris?
oners, Ave In number, are removed hence by
the order of the District art, and are on
their way to Spartanburg, w?ere they will be
imprisoned tor the rest of the term. They
were closely examined on every side, but
seemed to be only poorly clad and suffering
men. They were all sentenced to three
months' imprisonment, and their several
terms expire about the twelfth of next month.
Their names are aa follows : James Wall, D.
C. McClure, John Cantwell, A. P. Clement and
Dillard Mc Can trell. The Blxtb prisoner, John
Rix, !s not a Ku-Klux, but was sentenced yes?
terday to one years' imprisonment for using
old whiskey barrels without putting new reve?
nu^ stamps on them.
THE LATE FRANCIS J. PORCHER.
Action of the Phoenix Fire Company.
A special meeting of the Pheonix Fire Com?
pany was held on Wednesday evening last, at
their engine-house In Cumberland street.
President Wm. Aiken Kelly occupied the
chair, and a large number of honorary mem?
bers and ex-presidents of the company were
present. The president stated that the object
of the meeting was to pay a tribute of respect
to the memory of their deceased ex-president,
Francis J. Porcher. After giving expression
in flttlng*words to his own sense of the loss
the community had sustained, he announced
that the meeting was ready to consider any
appropriate action that might be suggested.
Ex-president R. D. Bacot rose and Bald:
The hushed silence which reigns In this usually
resounding hall, and this unaccustomed gather?
ing of less youthful faces, In addition to the
wonted assemblage, too truly tell the tale of the
sad occasion which brings us together.
Pause we for a moment and look back. It ls
our forty-sixth anniversary, and among ns sits
the well known, honored form of ex-President
PORCHES, to take parr, as was his wont, in the
annual celebration. Quietly, though Interestedly,
he joins in the proceedings, when suddenly his
observant eye espies In a distant corner, neglected
and duBt-solled, a relic of the past, associated In
bis mind with stirring scenes and loved remem-1
brances, and, with emotion, he asks the privilege I
of rescuing lt from neglect to restore it to its I
pristine beauty. .
A non, the duties o' the even leg ended, we pro- I
ceed to Its festivities, and lo l at the right I
sand of your presiding officer rues this thrice I
welcome guest, amid the enthusiastic greetings I
which always await him.
Hark I his familiar voice tells of the glorious I
lays gone by, urging yon to bs steadfast amid
the gloom of the Present, and to be of good cheer I
for the coming morrow.
Scarce a month rolls by wnen all is changed. J
mat manly form now Iles wrapped In the Icy J
nantie of the "King or Terrors," and these j '
)laces which have known him shall know him no j
nore. Well may we ask who next to fall beneath
he relentless scythe ?
The nearer mourners alway linger to lay the I.
last wreaths upon the sacred spot of the loved I
me. So lt ls meet and right that we, the cher
shea companions of this his petted corps, should I
?onie to close the memorial ceremonies, which, 11
luring three weeks, have so abundantly testl- 1
led to the worth of our well-beloved and deeply
nourned ex-President. 11
To me, his oldest comrade and closest asso- I ]
tato, ls entrusted the privileged dnty of weaving
he garland which we propose to drape around I,
ils memory by giving shape to our recording I
?t?mate of his noble virtues and bright example, I
md I now lay the votive offering before you In
he following preamble and resolutions: |
.'In words, Uke weeds, we'll wrap ns o'er,
Like coarsest clothes against the cold : 11
Bat that large grief which these infold 11
Is given In outline and no more."
At the post or duty, amid dark rolling clou ls (
if smoke and by the glare of the lurid name, the I,
rwift descending shell smote and shattered our
'LITTLE FRANK'' in the height of active useful- I !
tess. So the bolt of the "Destroying Angel" has, I ?
n the twinkling of au eye, dashed the human 11
irototype from the very arena of stirring life into I <
ho land or Silence and Decay, making us, his 11
larvlvtng comrades, to stand aghast, and bring-11
ng home to ns the appalling rv. ree or the solemn I
vords, "In the midst or Life we are in Death." I <
Tes 1 Death has stalked among us and riven I,
me o? the strongest links which bind onr memo- j,
les to the fast fading Patt.
It ti hard for us to realize that FRANCIS J. I '
'0BCR3R, only yesterday the embodiment of j 1
iving energy, with beaming eye and cheering I '
mlle, and earnest, ringing voice, should now
?steep the sleep which knows no waking;" the
ye closed, the smile fled, the voice bushed for-1
iver; and harder still, that we most learn to do j
v it ho u t bim.

Precede! In the o Wee of president by a noble ex- I
implar, who hewed out for us the path of sue .ess?
ai accomplishment, and placed high the standard I
if our achievements and reputa lon, he ablyxvore I
he mantle which fell upon him, and proved no
aggard In that path of sncess, but onward
irged the way, resigning his office in January,
857, after seven and a half years of devote i s?r?
ica, and only when his health, like his predeces
or's, impaired by duteous aa l long-contlnnedex- I
losure, demanded the sacrifice of his and our I
Daring "the times that tried men's son's," dnty
?ailed him away from our post or labor here, bat
"The contest o'er, the straggle lost,
Our hopes lay prostrate In tne dust," j
ie returned with buoyant heart and unabated I
?eal, and, alive to the progress of events, wa) I
nalnly instrumental In effecting the conversloa
>rour manual labor machine Into one worked I
>y untiring steam. j
Co ol In danger, in difficulty of mach resource, I
md in council sagacious-keenly alive to but I
lever carried away by success, nor losing heart
mder failure-hts was a well-balanced mind, I
vbich flashed with no brilliancy, but barned with j
i steady light. Possessed of that mest excellent,
hough frequently undervalued gift of common I
ense, so visible In all his actions, he measured I
veli his abilities; neither over-estimating, nor yet I
inderratlng them, he wasted no time in vain en
leavors, but when he undertook, he put both I
lands to the plough and sped lt In its work.
No Idler was he; for he fully appreciated the I
raine or the fleeting moments. No parsimony he I
mew; for he freely gave of his time, his abilities, I
ila means. In a word, his admirableness con
?lated tn the harmony of his character, the vibrat
ng chords of which were self-reliant energy, en?
tering earnestness, straightforward sincerity
ts pureBt strains, undeviating truth and unsnl
led honor. '
Let not our hurrying footsteps too quickly presB I
he Bod upon his mound;" but with the clustering

O O T T O IX FOOD!
Which they claim to be of the Highest Grade of Fertilizer sold in the South, and guarantee to equal
in resu.ts Peruvian Guano, ponnd for pound, and of more permanent benefit to the soil.
It has been used by several hundred Planters In North and Sooth Carolina and Georgia, for two
seasons, with the following results :
It increasea the crop rrom loo to 200 per cent.
It resists drought in all cases. The crop ls not affected by rust.
It matures the crop three to fonr weeks In advance, thns insuring the crop against early frosts,
or In the event of a backward season for planting enables the planter to put in his crop three or four
weeks later, even as lat? as the 1st of Jnne, with a certainty of auccess.
It produces a better quality of Cotton.
Looking at the low- price of Cotton, the Intelligent planter will readily comprehend the necessity
Dr using nothing bnt the highest grade or Fertilizers, and of strictly avoiding those whose value
has been reduced by adultera; lou or the nae of cheap materials nnder the pretence of meeting the
low price of Cotton.
If his crop ls only doubled by the use of "COTTON FOOD" lt will give him from one to two hun?
dred per cent, profit on h s outlay, with Cotton at 12J? cents per ponnd, and lt will enable him to plant
