Judge Bryan delivered a temperate, well
considered and dignified charge to the grand
jury. He read the rules prescribing the duties
ol the grand jury, and Impressed upon them
the solemn obligations they imposed upon
each juror. They should discharge their duty
with courage and integrity, and not be deter
red from their duty by fear or favor. The evi?
dence upon which they framed indictments
should be complete and satisfactory, and they
should accuse no man without proper regard
for the law, and should not be actuated to pre?
sent any one from enmity. Everything should
be done by the Juries for the public good, and
la the deliberation of their dury neither a
friend nor an enemy should be considered.
They should be thoroughly persuaded of the
real merita o? each case before passing upon it.
Probabilities shonld not enter Into the delib?
erations of jurors. He said that he would not
touch npon matters that were not before him,
but contine himself to the special matters In?
troduced by the district attorney, which con?
sisted of alleged violations of the internal
revenue law, pccto.flce law and the law of

Union County, arrived here yesterday from
Columbia, where they have been confined
since the last session of the United States
Court, Most of the prisoners and witnesses
were transferred yesterday from the County
Jail to the House of Correction. Fifteen of

IMPORTANT TO CIGAR DEALERS.
How the Unnrary are Entrapped- Be
wa rc ot the Informers.
Yesterday morning, John Law, a well-known
dealer of this city, was brought before the
United States commissioner charged with
having sold an old cigar box upon which the
revenue stamp had not been destroyed. The
fact of the selling was established; butas lt
also appeared from the evidence that the box
had been unknowingly sold by a clerk, and in
the absence and without the knowledge of Mr.
Law, the latter was discharged.
On the day preceding, Mr. J. H. Doscher
was al60 brought before the commissioner on
the same charge, and having no excuse but
his Ignorance of this piece of statute law, he
was bound over for trial at the present term
of the Circuit Court. The Informer in both
cases was Lieutenant A. E. Phillppy, the ex
chief of detectives. In the latter case it was
shown that he went to Mr. Doscher's store and
asked for the cigar box.
The law upon this point is explicit In forbid?
ding any one to eel for dispose of oldxigar or
tobacco boxes witcout first obliterating or
destroying the revenue -stamp upon it; and
when such a case, however trifiiug, Is brought
before a commissioner, be has no choice but
to bail or commit the offender for trial. As
this provision of the law may not be general?
ly known to shopkeepers, they are liable to
harassing prosecutions, as In the case of Mr.
Doscher, when they are entrapped Into thus
committing themselves by informers. Of
these there are many, who, catching up some
point like this, go about on the watch to take
advantage of the ignorant or unwary. Keep
a lookout for them.
PERSONAL.-Colonel John S. Cotbran, of
Abbeville, S. C., is in the city and staying at
the Mills House.

TAMPERING WITH LETTERS.-M. ^Fletcher
Horne, assistant postmaster at Timmonsville,
in Darlington County, was brought before
United States Commissioner Porteous yester?
day, charged with violating the postoffice law
by detaining and opening a letter containing
money, passing through his office. The pris?
oner was bound over for trial at the present
term of the Circuit Conrt.
To BE LOOKED INTO.-The death of the little
foundliog, which took place on Tuesday, the
day succeeding the night on which it was left
on the steps of the porter's lodge at the Or
pbanhouse gate, is to be investigated. The
child was thought tobe about ten cays old,
and the physician who attended lt gave a cer?
tificate that it died from exposure. The body
was disinterred yesterday from Potters' Field
where it was burled, and an Inquest will be
he'd upon lt to-day.
CLUBS AND STARS.-Annie Heyward, col?
ored, lodged for raising a disturbance in Elli?

rection for ten days.

turbing the peace of a trial justice's office,

the other paid up a fine of one dollar.
Ten EPISCOPAL ORPHAN SCHOOL.-Rev. A.
Toomer Porter acknowledges the receipt for
the Orphan School-house of fifty dollars from
a father and son, ten dollars from a Irlend
and five dollars from a friend, in response to
a number of circulars sent out by him. These
are generous responses, but there are still
many of the recipients who have not been
heard from, and who would, by following the
liberal examples above given, be conferring a
substantial benefit upon a most deserving In?
stitution, and aiding the falheiless children of
our State to acquire such an education as
without the agency of this school they would
never be able to obtain.

THE LICENSE LAW.-Since the first of April

charged with the granting of the same are
still busily employed. As some doubt sllll
appears to exist as lo the time that is to be
allowed for the taking out ot licenses, it may
be well to repeat the notice already giveu in
THE NEWS, that all persons coming under the
provisions of the license act will be allowed
until the 25th of the present month in which
to take out their licenses. At that time all
who have failed to comply with the law will
be reported to the attorney-general or the cir?
cuit solicitors, who are required by the law to

A Crowded Audience and a. Brilliant
The beautiful burlesquer of Miss Lydia
Thompson's new troupe took simultaneous
possessio* of the Academy of Music and the
hearts of its crowded audience at their initial
performance last evening. The merry traves?
tie upon the doleful legend of Blue Beard was
Irresistibly comical, and, with Its rollicking
humor, Its excruciating puns, and its accom?
paniments of charming dresses and lovely
forms, lt brought down the house. Miss Lydia
Thompson was the Jauntiest of sous-lieuten?
ants; MisB Eliza Weathersby, the Jolliest of
O'Shabacacs, and Miss Nellie Eamp the pearl
of pages. We give place aux dames, as ls our
duty, but the success of ihe evening was won
by Willie Edouin, the Heathen Chinee, whose
euchre scene from the tale of Truthful James
was applauded to the echo. To-night will be
given the legend of the love-lorn Lurline.

"The expense attendant opon the first establishment of the business of a Life Company, In new
territory, ls necessarily very considerable, yet you will be gratified to learn that the ratio of erpense
to receipts shows a steady decline, and in the fut ure-tue initiatory expenses having already been
Incurred-the decrease in this item should continue."

EXTRACT FROM PRESIDENT'S REPORT.
"These figures ranst prove very gratifying, in view of the fact that the last yearlies been con?
sidered a very unfavorable ono for Lire Insarance Companies, and I am led to taint that the Asso?
ciation will snow a larger increase in ita business from the operations of 1871 than any other Com?

for the patronage or merely a single state or section or the country; they are universal in their ap?
plication, and must be recognized by the whole nation."
