Festival of the Second Preebyterln
The annual May festival of the Sunda
school of the Second Presbyterian Church wt
celebrated on Saturday afternoon on th
beautiful lawn in front of the church. At hal
past 4 P. M. the children, over two hundred 1:
number, under the care of thirty-six teachers
marched from the commodious school room
where they had assembled, Into the churct
the infant classes occupying the front pews
The pews on the middle aisle were apprc
printed to the school, while friends and vlsi
tors occupied the side pews. From the pulpl
beamed the loving countenance of Dr. Smythe
JO long associated with the church am
school. The services consisted of prayers am
addresses, enlivened by the spirited slngin/
of the children, led by their accomplished mu
steal director, M?. Averill. Atter the cleafej
address by Mr. Ad ger Smythe, the ch lld re]
marched out of the church, the little one
leading the way, to the lawn, where, unde
the shade trees, several tables were loadei
with cakes, oranges, strawberries, lemonadi
and other delicacies. By a system of art?llela
culture, especially Interesting to children, th<
wild orange trees bore moss baskets, adorned
with bright flowers and gay sugar plum bags,
for which, when the feast had been well dla
cussed, there was a grand scramble. Thc
grave seniors strolled about or sat at ease
looking at the little opes at play, while they
with joyous shouts, ran races, Jumped rope
and played at various games, until the shades
of evening warned them of the close of the
festival. The weather was all that cbuld have
been desired, bright and sunny, and yet re?
lieved with fresh cool breezes. Among the
most interesting features of the celebration
was the presentation of handsome Bibles to
the little boy and girl who had brought the
greatest number of scholars to the school du?
ring the year. A little girl brought seven,
and Master David Lafar fourteen. The super?
intendent ot the school is Mr. A. B. Stillman.
Thc Steamer St. Helena
started last on her regular Saturday excursion
up the river. On board were numbers who
had been lett by the two first mentioned boats,
ind numerous excursionists who were going
to see the river. The steamer (topped first at
drayton Hall, where some of the party got
nut, and then proceeded farther up the river to
the Middleton place. The visitors here went
lahore and spent a pleasant hour walking
through the extensive garden and pleasure
grounds ot this beautiful country seat. Once
more on board, the party steamed
gally down the /iver, stopping again
it Drayton Hall. Here the other
puties were still lingering, anl as the even?
ing drew on they one? more went aboard of
the steamers and started lor home. The trip
home was delightful. The evening was beau?
tifully cool and clear, and the boats, with flags
dying, bands playing, and exchanging signal
whistles ss they passed each other, awoke
the echoes from the neighboring shores and
eave an air of unwonted life to the scene.
Amid the waving of handkerchiefs, the sing?
ing of songs, and reciprocating cheers, the
shores sped swiftly by, and soon the steeples
rf the old City by the Sea became visible. An
excursion down the harbor to Sumter closed
the day, and turning their prows towards the
city, the steamers were soon discharging their
throngs of happy merry-makers at the
wharves. Not an accident marred the har?
mony ot the day, and the excursionists spent
a day of thorough enjoyment.

beat. His ears-were soon assailed by the noise
upon the mali; and atrtdlng-towards the young
urchins ordered them to begone. They scat?
tered quickly enough before the official, but |
soon formed a circle, at a respectable dislance,
arouDrt him. Hts.portly dimensions attracted
.their attention, and,became, the target for
biting Jeers and sarcasms. Almost beside
himself with rage, Clubs and Stars made a
?rush at the nearest speaker. This was re?
ceived with yells bf delight' by the' assailants.
The game was now up, and around the square,
about the batteries, and through the yards
went the yelling crowd, with the fat policeman
In the middle-the only silent person amonga
dozen taunting Imps. This could not last long,
and, hailing for breath, Clubs and Stars sent
off for reinforcements. ' Several citizens, an
ployed by the unusual noise, also seconded his
application, abd before long the crowd of]
small, boys saw several nimble policemen
coming for them. The whole crowd inconti?
nently took to their heel?, and a lively chase
ensued. The game ran like horses and dodged
like partridges, but the noise was ended, and
at length four whining juveniles were cap- j
tured. These denied all connection with the
disorderly party, and stated that-.tbey were on
their way home from Sunday-school, but their
fat friend was there to recognize them. They
wejje taken to the Guardhouse, where one
was locked up and the others discharged.

marshal of Georgia was severely wounded.

VERDICT IN THE GRANT CASE.-The Investi.,
gallon Into the causes leading to the death of
Abram Grant, who was shot on Monday last
at the Miles plantation, in St. James Goose
creek, was continued by the coroner's Jury
on Saturday, pursuant to adjournment, and
concluded. Their verdict was that Grant had
come to his death by being accidentally shot
by S. C. Brown. The statement of S. 0. Wig?
gins, the companion ol Brown, was con?rmed
In every respect, and fortunately by the col?
ored men who were working In the field. It
was also shown that the riot and commotion
which succeeded the accident was caused
by the hands from a neighboring plantation,
and that the colored people on the Miles place
contributed much to the safety of the two
white men by their' firmness. Young Brown
is a Radical, and a relative ol'one of our coun?
ty commissioners. These two circumstances
spoil what might have afforded the materials
for a heavy Ku-Klux tragedy. '
