quarter before four o'clock. The companies
assembled in full parade uniform In Broad
street, with the right resting on Meeting, the
long line o? machines, bells end uniforms ex?
tending down Broad street to Friend. The
afternoon was very warm, and the firemen
took every advantage of the shade of the
trees while waiting until the line had been
formed. This was at last accomplished, and
the City Council having been notified, Mayor
Wagener and the Aldermen left the Council
Chamber and took their positions upon the
curb directly in front of the CH y Hall. At a
given signal the line of the Fire Department

bers and looking quite capable and ready for

SUNDAY SCHOOL CELEBRATIONS.
iBtereatlne Anniversary Exercises of
the Bethel Methodist Episcopal Sun.
The anniversary celebration of thiB school
took place yesterday afternoon at tbe church,
southwest comer ol'Pitt and Calhoun streets.
A larrn and Intelligent audience were present,
which, together wiih the officers and children
connected with the school, filled the spacious
edifice toits utmost capacity. The exercises
were opened by singing the first hymn,
"Reaping Time," which was rendered admira?
bly, as indeed was all the singing on this oc?
casion. This was due mainly to the Interest
evinced by, and the persevering efforts of,
their teacher of music, E. J. Maeterman, and
the devotion and prc- -iency of the organist,
Miss Mary Burrows.
After prayer by Rev. Dr. John T. Wightman,
of the Spring street Church, the second hymn,
"The Evergreen Shore," was sung.
The efficient superintendent, Charjes H.
Muckenfuss, Esq., then presented his able
and Interesting report, which was listened to
with marked attention, and produced an im?
pression on the minds and hearts of all pres?
ent such as will doubtless contribute largely
tb .the future interest and success of the Sab?
The report showed a decided increase in
the prosperity of the Behool and the number
of pupils. Ol' these, the largest attendance
during the year bad been one hundred and
fifty-one, and the average attendance seventy
seven. The rell of the schcol now consists of
twenty-six officers and teachers, and one hun?
dred and forty scholars, making a total of one
hundred and sixty-six persons connected with
the school. The report reviewed the work?
ings of the school for the yeor, and Indicated
the prospect of a prosperous future lrom tte
energy and ability of the teachers and the en?
thusiasm of the pupils.
The hymn, "We are marching to the King?
dom," was next In order, and then followed
addresses from Masters R. Stewart Mucken
fu?s. 8ubJect: "Work and walt;" Harry B.
Bee, subject: "Little by little;" Hilliard C.
Moore, subject : "Children's Prayer;" Frede?
rick B. Warren, subject : "What is most beau?
tiful;" and Willie W. Muckenfus?, subject:
"The Love ol Jesus." All these youthful ora?
tors manifested an unusual amount of zeal
and earnestness ia their early efforts to pro?
mote tbe cause In which they have enlisted.
Their several Instructors deserve the utmost
praise for the merited success attained on this
occasion, and the audience who were so much
gratified are indebted to both teachers and
children, for an entertainment so well calen.
ia*ied to do good, and so consistent lu Its char?
acter with the sanctity of the Sabbath. The
absence of all display in the sanctuary of
God, and the modest style of conducting
the exercises by the superintendent, together
with the decorous behavior of the whole audi?
ence, both adults and children, could not fall to
elicit the -highest commendation. The Inter?
val between these addresses was occupied by
Binging "Work to do for Jesus." The infant
class of this school was then called to the
altar, and each received BB an award a hand?
some chr imo card. Thirty other appropriate
prizes were also attached to the higher classes,
male and female, alter which a very eloquent
and Impressive address was delivered by the
pastor, Rev. A. M. Cbrietzberg. The last
hymn, "Meet me in that Blessed Land," was
then sung, and the whole congregation joined
in closing the exercises with that grand old
anthem, "Old Hundred." The benediction was
then pronounced by the Rev. It. D. Smart, and
the congregation dispersed.
Sunday-School Plc ri Ir.
The annual picnic of the Citadel Square Bap'
tlet Church Sunday-School took place on Sat?
urday, and was one of the most extensive
and enjoyable ones of tb? season. Tbe'
weather was delightful, and a little after nine
o'clock the children began lo assemble at the
wharf at the foot of Market street. They
were received by their kind superintendent,
Mr. John G. Mllnor, and soon after the pupils
and many members of the congregation, In all
some three hundred and. fifty?lx persons,
took the steamer for Mount Pleasant. Arriv?
ing at the place the young people encamped
among the oaks on Haddreli's Poi at, where
games and rural am?santem* of every kind
were soon in progress. The large hall near
the wharf had also been thrown open to them,
but the children preferred the open air,
which resounded with their joyous shouts and
merry laughter. Their loved pastor, the Rev.
Dr. E. T. Winkler, was also present, direct) sg
and participating in many of the spoiie.
Swings, ball playing, running, games, &c,
gave the children a delightful time, and added
to the pleasures of the shady grass, tbe
bright spring weather, and the cool breeze
blowing in lrom the distant ocean. An invi?
tation was extended to the children of the
Mount Pleasant Church Sunday-school, who
Joined their little hosts lu the amusements ot
the day. Later the young people formed on
the green and marched to the long table
which bad been provided by loving and boun?
tiful hands with everything good. After the
dinner bad been discussed with such appe?
titesas only healthy exercise in the open air
can give, the sports were resumed. In the
afternoon about five o'clock the juvenile as?
semblage took the ferry boat and reached
the city safely, having spent a most delight?
ful day. '_

nounces tho appearance in that market of the
first of the new crop of Rangoon per steam?
ship Italy, from Liverpool, which it says ls
well prepared, very white and full In grain.
It quotes Rangoon at 6?a7?c. Formerly the
East India crop began to come to hand early
in July, but by using the Suez Canal a saving
of nearly three months ls obtained.
OWENS AT THE ACADEMY.-The renowned
comedian, John E. Owen?, begins his season
of three nights at the Academy of Music to?
morrow evening, when the comedy of The
Poor Gentleman will be given, with Mr.
Owens as '-Dr. 01lapod,"and the roaring farce
of Solon Shingle, the title-role of which Mr.
Owens has made his great specialty. It ls
somewhat singular that, notwithstanding the
ptominent position which Mr. Owens has for
so many years occupied upon the American
stage, he has never before appeared upon the
Charleston boards. We eau assure our readers
that In the next three nights they will have
the opportunity of attending the most
thoroughly enjoyable dramatic entertainments
that Charleston hos known for at least a de?
cade. The company, we are told by the Sa?
vannah papers, is one 'of marked and even
merit, and Owens himself is admitted to hold
the same pre-eminence among living actors
in relation to comedy that Edwin Booth enjoys
as the best interpreter of the tragic Muse.

ful a Sunday as could be imagined, and the
churches were Ulled to overflowing.

Mr. W. E. Spalding, the veteran manager ot
the National Theatre at Washington, ls now in

engagement of the great comedian, Owens.
We hope that this may not be Manager Spald?
ing's last visit to Charleston.

THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
Will the People Allow them to he
Closed ?-Letter from Commissioner
OFFICE OF SCHOOL COMMISSIONERS.
CHARLESTON, S. C., April 27,1872.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
I have read with much pleasure your re?
marks In this morning's issue of THE News, In
reference to the public shools in this county,
j and trust that the wise and timely suggestion
you make may meet with a ready response
lrom some of our leading citizens. There are
! now in operation In Charleston County and
outside of the city about fifty public schools,
containing not less than two thousand chil?
dren, and costing about $1500 per montb.
The poll and school taxes which have been
collected throughout the county will doubt*
less furnish ample means for paying tbe ln
oebiness to teachers for tbe first quarter of the
year. As the law limits the operation of the
schools to nine months, but six months re?
main to be provided for. The cost of the
schools now open for thai length cf time will
not exceed $9000. The county treasurer.
General Gurney, holds an order on the State
treasury for $39,273 80-100, which he has offer?
ed to deposit as collateral security with any
responsible parties who will undertake to ad?
vance the money necessary to meet the claims
of the teachers until tbe draft can be met..
Now, wi l not some ol our public spirited
bankers or merchants come to the rescue,
and enable us to continue the schoolB, without
trenching upon the slender resources of our
already overburdened community? The securi?
ty ls ample, and I am sure no better opportu?
nity of doing good to a large class ol our iel
low-cliIzenB is likely to occur.
Very respectfully yours,
E. MONTAGUE GRIMKE,
School Commissioner Charleston County.
