COLUMBIA, 8. C., Tuesday, May 21.
The report that the interest on the State
debt, dne July ilrst, will not be paid bas no
other foundation than the casual remark ol a
dabbler in stocks. The Biog maintain a pro?
found secresy, and lt is highly probable that
the depressing rumors now In circulation are
Intended to shove the bonds down
and leave those in tbe secret a hand?
some profit when tbe truth comes
out. A large sum of money in revenue bond
scrip has been received at the treasury, but
none as yet has been paid out. The policy of
the Bing appears to be to nurse their funds,
paying no claims except of the most pressing
kind, so as to be able to restore the State
credit and give tbe grumbling bondholders at
leasjftlx months' Interest to keep'them qolet
until fall, when the tax collections will be
abundantly sufficient to ll an?date all arrears.
Governor Scott and Comptroller Neagle are
closeted together freqnently, and Speaker

COMMUNISM TN GEORGIA.
A Q,uter Lot-A Leader with Almost
Dictatorial Powers-Secession from
[From the Augusta ConstltntlonaU-t.]
Some months since a religions colony pur?
chased the Stearns place, on the Washington
Road, about eleven miles from this city, and
there settled with their household gods. The |
colony at first was small, consisting of only
two or three families. They gradually received
accessions to their ranks, and at the begin?
ning ot the present week numbered about
fifty souls. This colony, embracing families
trom Springfield. Mass., and other places In
the -New England States, and one from Phils-1
delphla, bas been under the leadership of
Joseph T. Curry, of Springfield, who, we have [
understood, ls clothed with almost
and exercises the functions ora Judge in set?
tling all disputes between the members of the
colony, and of a religious instructor, in which
latter capacity be conducts the peculiar servi?
ces ot the belief, though every man of the oody
has tbe right to preach whenever be feels so
disposed. Monday last a difficulty occurred
between Curry and several ol' the colony,
which resulted in the secession of the latter
from the settlement. TheBe, consisting ol
four families, numbering about twenty
persons, conveyed their movable property to
thia city, and rented the large brick house,
owned by Foster Blodgett, on the corner of
Greene and Lincoln ?treets. Here we suc?
ceeded In Interviewing one of the men yester?
day. We lound him tobe a very Intelligent
person, but though polite and courteous In
every respect, he seemed extremely reluctant
to give any detailed account of the colony or
the difficulty which caused the secession, aud
we were only able to obtain a few facts. He
stated that himselt and family were from
Springfield, Massachusetts, and had only been
on the settlement four weeks when they be?
came dissatisfied. Another ol the seceding
lam liles had remained there but a week. He
said that the principal cause of
was that the society had adopted lor Its guld- j
ance very strict roles, which were enforced in
Borne Instances, while In others they were not.
The colonists bad sold out everythiug that |
they owned at the North, except what few
things they could transport easily, or which old
associations made unpleasant to part with,
and settled down upon the land which they
had pnrcbased. -Here the majority of them
were compelled to live In one house until
others could be built. He (the seceder) had
erected a substantial cottage. When this was
finished, Curry declared that lt was too large,
and that the rules bad been violated. His re?
ply waa that he did not consider that he had
violated any rule, and that he had matfe the
house somewhat large because he had a fine
piano and other furniture which he wished to
pot In it, The dispute, which was the culmi?
nating point ot previous dlssatlslactlon, led
to the secession above ?tated. The sec ed era
hav?^.rented the honse In which we found
them until the lat of October. The men are
first-class cabinetmakers, carpenters and tin-:
ners, and hope to obtain work In tbe city. If
they can do this they express the determina?
tion to settle permanently Jn Augusta. Our
Informant stated tbat they had by no means
abandoned their religious belief, but felt con?
vinced tbat they bad made a false step some?
where, and wished to take time to consider
where their mistake had been. As'far aa we
of the sect sect seems lo be an implicit belief |
In the whole Scriptures Interpreted by them?
selves. According to their interpretation,
baptism by water ls not necessary, but only
that by the Holy Ghost, or a receiving of the
lal th, so to speak. They celebrate Saturday
as the Sabbath, and do not admit strangers to
their services on that day. On ev?-ry Sunday
evening, however, a sermon ls preached by
Curry, at which time all persons are Invited
to be present. Our Informant slated that the
sect had no particular designation, but was
merely, a community ot persons bonded to?
gether lor the purpose of exercising their pe?
culiar idea of religion. From others, how?
ever, we learned tbat the colony ls called the
There are evidently other tenets held by
this people ot wblcb we could obtain no knowl?
edge. Several of them have been hinted to us
by outside parties, but we refrain from stating
them as we have been unable to obtain au?
thentic Iniormatlon on those points. The
colony seems to be quiet and orderly. They
have purchased farming utensils of all kinds,
and of the most approved patterns, and are
actively engaged in planting operations.
About twenty additional families are expected
to strive jome time next week, when the
colony will be nearly doubled in numbers.
COTTON SPINNE'1} IN GERMANT.-There has |
been an extraordinary progress in cotton spin?
ning and weaving in Germany of late years.
The consumption ol raw cotton there amount- j
ed to but 185,772 centwelgbts annual average
during 1836-40. The yearly average between
1866 and 1870 was 1 685,12-1 centweights, and
In yarn alone the average, from 143,617 cent
weights, reached a production of 1,348,099
centwelgbts in 1870. Direct importation from
the producing countries Increases rapidly, but
the last named year affords no criterion, inas?
much as the Netherlands and Belgium then
furnished a larger quota to Germany than Bre?
men, owing to the blockade. The Importa?
tion of India cotton via Trieste has, from 89.
586 centweights in 1868, risen to 183,453
through the opening of the Suez canal. But
despite the perfection of macniuery within the
Empire, the higher grades of jame continue to
come to a great extent from England, notwllh
standing a raised import duty thereon; lhere
ls only a gradual decrease in this species of
import observante as regards Englaud, while
lt, on the other band, assumes larger propor?
tions from Switzerland. The total amount of
yarn consumed during the war year 1870 was
1,617,715 centweights. Tbe general tendency
is that of independence, especially from Eng?
land. This is the easier of accomplishment, as
direct steamship lines now ply from cotton
ports to the Hanse town?.-Handels Zeitung.

The Crop Prospect-Hurrahing for
Greeley-\o Democratic Nomina?
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
PENDLETON, S. C., May 17.
We have to-day a refreshing rain, to the de?
light of, especially, colton planters, whose
seeds are locked up under a hard crust, and
hence much complaint of "bad stands." Ex?
cept one light rain on the 2d instant, this ls
the first since the storm of the 18th ultimo,
just one month ago, and with drying winds,
hot days and cold nights the cotton prospect,
only on light lands, ls by no means encourag?
ing. Corn, too, not all yet planted or worked
over the first time, on account of the hard
crusted state of the land-- even that has'
been broken up early-is by no means in
an advanced state. Wheat has been promis?
ing, but for the want of a good rain some ten
days Bince will be cut short. It is now in head
and bloom, very irregular in height and
length of heads. It requires no more rain,
and would be much Injin ed by heavy showers
at this time, which would knock off th j
blooms and cause only a partial filling, of the
heads, termed by some ''mildew," ''ollght,"
?c. The oat crop, except the lall sown and
that Dot good, must be, from present appear?
ance, wimont much rain until In head, almost
a lailure. Such ss have clover and the grass?
es-and ail hereabouts should have instead of
so much cotton-have been mowing for some
days past; the crop ls fair but cut somewhat
short ny the late drought.
In the all-absoroing matter ol our next
Presidency we are all Greeley men. and Ifyou>
will present your correspondent with a white

ROUND DANCING DENOUNCED.
Ia the Protestant Episcopal Convention lor
the Diocese of Virginia! held at Norfolk, last
week, lae annual report of Blshop^Johns was
read. The bishop ls very pronounced lu his
views-taking strong ground against ritual?
ism and the useof altars Instead ol tables. In
conclusion, be says:
There is another subject of a different char?
acter which I would gladly avoid If I could do
so without disappoint.ng and. perhaps, dis?
couraging some of my faiihlul brethren of the
clergy, who are grieved because certain of
Meir communicants do not avoid things con?
trary lo their profession. The most offensive
inconsistency specified consists in indulging
in that lascivious mode ol' promiscuous danc?
ing styled the round dance-a demoralizing
dissipation, disgusting to the delicacy ol a re?
fined taste, and shocking to the sense of sen?
sibility ol the refined mind. This scandal is
not lo be tolerated lu the Church of Cnrist.
Let every appeal be made in the way of affec?
tionate remonstrance, Judicious teaching and
earnest prayer for the retormatlon ol' those
led astray, If God peradventure will give
them repentance. It ail such efforts prove
unavailing to remove the scaudal. and at the
same lime employ the last- expedient lor
awakening the offender to a sense of his sin
and danger, lt becomes necessary to resort to
the exercise of decided discipline-it must be
so. It may cause ministers many tears, but
the painful duty must not be declined.

THE WHITE-HAT CAMPAIGN
THE WOOD-CHOPPER OF CH APPA 0 UA
OROWISG IX POPULAR FA VOR.
The Old Dominion's Response lo Voor
hees's Speech for Grant. v
The Virginia Conservative press very gene?
rally condemn Mr. Voorhees's late philippic
against the nomination ol Mr. Greeley, de?
livered in Congress, to the gratification of all
anti-Liberallsts of whatever complexion. The
Richmond Whig says "lt is time for people to
open their eyes when the very Boanerges of
Democracy ls listened to as an oracle by the
friends ot Grant," and then It wants to know
whether "Mr. Voorhees and thOBe Northern
Democrats and Southern Conservatives woo
think with him contemplate playing In the
Baltimore Convention a game of fast and
loose ? Do they, afier insisting that we shall
all await the action of that body and adopt it,
whatever it may be, intend to reject, il unless
their views as to candidates shall prevail ?
We are compelled to so construe Mr. Voor
bees's remarks." The Whig concludes as
Are the Southern Conservatives to be tied
iiand and loot when they go Into the Baltimore
Convention, and the Northern Democrats lo
be free and loot-loose ? This matter ought to
be carefully looked loto.
In conclusion, we Incline to think that Mr.
Voorhees's tirade, which was designed io kill
Mr. Greeley, will greatly help him and the
Liberal cause with both the Soulhera Conserv?
atives and the liberal Northern Democrats. A
few more such tirades will place his election
beyond a peradventure.
The following, however, from the Peters?
burg Progrees, m?y- be taken as the general
answer of Virginia and the rest of the South
to Mr. Voorhees. It eays:
The telegraph has already announced to
readers of the Progress that the Hon. D. W.
VoorheeB, of Indiana, has made use of his
privileges as a member ol' the House of Rep?
resentatives lo deliver a violent tirade against
the Ciucinuuii nominees. We hive received
a full report of the speech of th? man who so
earnestly defended one of John Brown's mur?
derous crew, and have only to say in reply to
bis pretended defence of the South that we
have had entirely enough of nlmself and the
cia s to which Re belongs.
By such men, by such brave speakers, by
such unconqueruole caucus warriors, were we
persuaded tuto war: When the flower of both
sections was falling on bloody fields, Mr.
Voorhees was Billi making pretty speeches In
since actual hostilities ceased, this gentle?
man has insisted that the South should stand
by Its colors; and, by so doing, the South has
lost everything, while Mr. Voorhees and bis
associates have-kept in Congress.
Now let all peop.e of lils way of thinking'
understand that their one-sided game is played
out. The South is os tired of the cosily friend?
ship ot pretended trlends as ot the constant
victories of open enemies.
If Mr. Voorhees has nothing more solid to
appeal to than the past passions of the South?
ern people, he bad better begin to cultivate a
new talent-thatof silence-and try to learn a
lesson which has been taught to wiser men
that the worm will turn when trodden on.
Certainly, having steadia-aly resisted the
encroachments and aggressions ol the absolute
rulers of this country, we are neither foolish
nor craven enough lo submit to the dictation
of an Imbecile minority.
If we were cowards, they are impotent to
execute a threat. -s
It we were venal, they could honor no

are sick ot gammon. We will not vote for any

not again place Issue of life and death at the !
disposal ot ihe New York World. We will not
again save local honors and spoils to the
"faithful" in Indiana by the sacrlrtce of life,
liberty and property by the people of South
Carolina, MississipDl and Arkansas.
We are in ihe 'Union. Wo have one hun?

Much more shall we maintain Them in the

care Voorhees may stand aside.
The Democratic Congressmen and the
Liberal Ticket-Call for the Reun?an
The Washington correspondent of the Balli?
more Sun writes:
An erroneous statement having been put
rot tit that sixty ot the one hundred and five
Democratic members of the House had signed
a paper protesting against Ihe nomination ol
Mr. Greeley at Baltimore, inquiry has been
made ol tho several. State delegations to learn
how they do si and on that question. In the
Hist place, each member denies ever having
signed a paper of the character named, ano,
lu the second place, most of them do not care
io be specifically mentioned in print as favor?
ing this or that candidate. Taere ls entire
unanimity lu agreeing io support ihe nominee
of tue Ballimore Convention, whoever he
may be. But, taking the State dele?
gations ID alphabetical order, two of
ihe three Alabama Democratic members
favor Mr. Greeley. The single mern
uer from Arkansas ls doubtful, while the one
from Connecticut favors the Cincinnati ticket,
aud the one from Delaware opposes lt. All
tue Georgia delegation are opposed to Greeley.
Of lue six Illinois Democrats but two are lu?
ci ned io i a vor his nomination, and they are
by no means commuted. The five Democratic
members from Indiana are an opposed to him,
aud lt ls duublfujpdf Messrs. Kerr and Voor
iieea would support him if nominated. Three,
pos-lbiy lour, of ihe niue Kentucky represen?
tatives believe lt Impossible to eleci a straight
out Democratic ticket, and favor the Balti?
more coalitlou. But oue of the five Marylaud
members ia anywise favors ihe latter. The
single member from Michigan ls doubtful,
wuile all of the lour Democratic members
from Missouri are virtually for Greeley and
Brown, some more strougiy than others. All
ine New Hampshire members support the
ticket. The iwo New Jersey Democrats
anoounce that they will vote against lt
if nominated. Of the sixteen Democrats
from New York all but two are known
to favor C.eelev's nomination, and ihe
three Nen Carolina members are Inclined
that way. Four or five uf the Otilo men are
b i 11 erl y opposed lo Greeley, and one non-com?
mittal. S ater, the only member from Oregon,
endorses Voorheea's position. The eleven
Democrats irom Pennsylvania favor Greeley,
wit n possibly one exception. The six Tennes?
see members will Bland by the Nashville Con?
vention, which endorsed the Cincinnati ticket.
The lodr Texas members are non committal,
as are the Virginia members, ail of whom
await the result of the convention, and will
abide by lt. Tuc two West Virginia members
suppurt Greeley, and the two Wisconsin mem?
bers oppose him. This ls about as lair a state?
ment as can be obtained of ihe views ol' ihe
Democratic members. They all very general?
ly doubt the propriety of making speeches in
Congress against any Presidential candidate,
or In in favor of any one whose name is to
come before the Baltimore Convention.
A call will be made In a few days for the late
Cincinnati Reunion und Reform couvenilon to
assemble in-Baltimore ou the 8th or July. Its
ooject at Cincinnati was to form a State organ?
ization to break up party corruption, the cau?
cus system, ?fcc, and now lt aspires to do that
by a national party, possibly by co-operation
with the reorganized Democracy. It should
not. be confound".!.! willi ihe national conven?
tion wh.ch met at Cincinnati and nominated

THE LAST SCENE AT APPOMATTOX.
Speech of a Federal Officer.
There was a reunion of the Society of the
Army ol the Potomac held at Cincinnati on
the 7th instant. At this celebration the ora?
tion was delivered by General Stewart L.
Woolford, of New York, and from this oration
we maka tbe following extracts :
The morning creot slowly on-first into
gray dawn, then Into rosy blush. Still on I
still on ! The mists crept upward, and lcto'
line you wheeled, and on your muskets lay
down, each man in place to get scant rest,
which even In the exhaustion of those thirty
six hours ol' t?rrlbl?* marching, you neither
sought nor heeded. You wero squarely across
L?>e's front, and had closed forever his last
line of retreat.
The enemy reaching your cavalry advance,
saw the serried Hue of Union troopers. Gor?
don gathered and mas-sed his men lor their
last charge. Tattered and hungry, worn by
c?nseles* marching and lighting, with no hepe
ol' victory, with little possibility of escape,
they closed their lines with a fidelity of dis?
cipline and a soldierly resolution to which
words can do little Justice-but which each
soldier's heart must recognize and honor.
As the Old Guird closed around their
Emperor at Waterloo, so- these men closed
round the flags of their lost cause. My heart
abbon their treason.- But lt warms beyond
restraint to their manhood so grandly brave,
even In disloyalty. Slow.y they advanced to
their last attuck. No battle yell, no crack of
the skirmisher's rifle broke the strange still?
ness of that Sabbath moro. Steadily, silently
they came, when Sheridan drew back his
horsemen, as parts some mighty curtain, and
lhere stood the close formed battalion.-? ot your
Infantry, the cannon gleaming In the open?
ings, quietly awaiting the coming ol Gordon's
Instinctively your enemy halted. Meanwhile
Lee had turned back to meet Grant and surren?
der bis command. Sheridan swung his cavalry
around upon Gordon's left, and was about lo
charge, when Costar reached Longstreet.
Assurance of surrender was -given, and the
end -had come.
That Sabbath day, with tears and In sorrow,
Southern men folded the bauners of the "Lost
Cause," and their bravest and best sought
honorably to bury them from sight fbrever.
How sad lt ts that poor ambitions, jealousies
ot race, the wretched greed of pelf and place,
and the miserable hates ot social rivalries,
should so often disturb the heany reconcilia?
tion of that surrender and for a time revive
the bitterness which you then sought to bury
In a common grave.
This hour is no lime for politics. Mine not
tho lips, I trust, to introduce them here. But
when I think of that heroic past which your
faces and presence so vividly recall, and then
bow trading, trickster pol li leans, i orge t Ci il of
what baptism of biood sealed the new birth
of the nation, seek to array races In needless
hominy, lo excite the ignorance of the one
and the brutal prejudices of the other, I would
like lo summon a guard, half lrom the rebel
army of Northern Virginia and half from (he
loyal army of tbe Potomac, take such mal?
contents out, give them drum-head court-mar?
tial, Immediate execution and soldierly burial
unuer the apple tree at Appomattox.
THE KU-KLUX LAW IN THE SENATE.
Amts Arraigned by Alcorn.
WASHINGTON, May 21.
The Senate was occupied all day In discuss?
ing the proposed prolongation of the period
during which the writ of habeas corpus may
be suspended under the Ku-Klux act. Mr.
Alcorn said: "Northern men have become since
the war citizens, bona Ade, ol Mississippi, tak?
ing stock in the sympathy and Interests ot our
people; these are amongst the elite ot the
Republican party. Others have come into the
State-sojourners so long as they hold office.
TheirTeuure or office will end as lt began,
wit h repulsions ot race. Like those who set tire
to humes, they nave come to Tail imo in opdor
to steal. My colleague, Ames, representing
notnlng In Mississippi nave these agents of hate,
stands here as a stumbling block to repose and
concord. Hu knows no restraint ot the repre?

The forty-five assassinations which he thus

OUR PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS.
THE CITY HOSPITAL.
Inspection by the Board or Health
What has been Accomplished tinder
tlit Sew Regime-More Room Needed
Tor the Lunatics.
The physicians of the board of health were
called~together' yesterday afternoon at tbe
City Hospital for the purpoie of considering
in what manner the large and constantly In?
creasing number ol Insane at the hospital are
to be disposed of. As part of the business the
board went through the department for the
insane, and then successively through the
other wards of the hospital. They lound all
the wards scrupulously neat and clean, with
no contagious diseases under treatment in the
hospital. The bedding, sheeting, &c, in all ot
the wards have been renewed, and tbe long
rows of beds and the patients upon them were
neat and tidy. The floors throughout the
hospital were scrubbed and polished, and even
the cells of the mos t violent lunatics preseut
ed an appearance of neatness which would
have been creditable to many a private house?
The chief end in view being the disposal ot
the Insane, this department received special
Investigation. Of these unfortunates there
are twenty-six now In the hospital, more than
half of these having been sent back from the
asylum at Columbia during the recent panic in
the commissary department of that institution.
Most of these are violent at Intervals and re?
quire close watching. Yesterday they were
all allowed to go out In the yard, where they
sat silently In the shade, walked up and down,
or gesticulated as their wayward fancies im?
pelled them. These lunatics are mostly pos?
sessed of acote perceptive faculties. They
generally converse most volubly with strang?
ers, according lo tbe bent of their malady.
But titra them out together and they never
waste their eloquence upon or converse with
each other. They know well enough some?
thing ls wrong and lt is no good, so they keep
silent. It a Bane man or the doctor comes
along, however, they are in tor a talk, and
will keep It-up as long as the next one. They
are better than other talking bores, however,
for when you are tired of their nonsense you
walk off and they take no offence. The point
is, that they know a sane man from a lunatic
as well as the doctor himself.
There are fourteen cells for the accommo?
dation of these twenty-six lunatics, and os lt
now Btands Ihe quiet ones sleep two In a cell,
the raging ones have whole cells, and the
supernumeraries are disposed ot about the
hospital. Their tricks and queer noises, how?
ever, disturb the other patients 10 the sick
wards a great deal. This scant accommoda?
tion is owing to the tact that the hospital was
Intended only for a depot, and was never
built for an Insane asylum. New cells are nec?
essary, or else the removal of the lunatics to
their proper borne In the State Asylum at
In addition to the Improvements In the
wards, ihe late repairs of the hospital kitchen
called forth the earnest commendations of the
board. The kitchen has been entire1 v refit?
ted with new Iron cooking ranges, ol approved
pattern, and furnished with all ot the latest
appliances and conveniences. The bid stoved
have been taken away and the iron sold, the
brick work renewed and the whole depart?
ment ol the cuisine brought Into the highest
slate of efficiency and perfection. The ranges
also furnish heated water throughout the hos?
pital. All of this hos cost the city nothing.
The ranges cost $425, which was paid out of
the income derived from the hospital itself.
Since January every department ol the
hospital has been entirely refitted with bed?
ding, sheeting, coverlids, Ac, the office re?
paired, and this, including the expenses for the
cooking ranges and various other conveni?
ences for the patients, cost eleven hundred
dollars. Every cent of this has been paid
from the lund derived from the hospital Itself,
and in addition to this the sum ot eleven hun?
dred and fifty dollars has been turned over
above these expenses Into the city treasury
The hospital ls managed by the surgeon, J.
Somers Buist, M. D., assisted by Drs. Huger
and Schroder In the medical department, and
Mr. C. S. Fairly, the efficient hospital steward.
The condition of tho Institution and Its pro?
gress ls a gratifying sign ot the success of the
new health bills, prominent among the

THE ELECTION OF BISHOPS.
Exciting Scenes lu the Methodist Con.
NEW YORK, May 21.
The election of bishops is progressing by
ballot, and ls a tedious affair. Doctor Slicer
said thirty years ago ut the election of bishops
there had been ballot-stuffing. He hoped, If
such a thing whs discovered here, tbe vote
would be taken over again. An Indiana dele?
gate demanded that the laity and clergy vote
separately for bishops. The motion was lost,
fTremendous cheering.] A delegate ca.led
attention to the demonstration of the audi?
ence, and moved that the galleries be cleared.
[Hisses from the galleries.] Bishop Ames
asked the police, if any were present, to clear
'he galleries. During Ihe absence of the tel?
lers the Book Concern was discussed fart her.
Finally five bl-hops were elected: W. L. Har
rlB, Central Onto; R. S. Foster, New York;
Thomas Boreman, Iowa; also Messrs. Wiley
and Merrill. Those lacking a majority were
Peck, Foss, Eddy, Haven, Heed, Newman,
Waldron, Flower, Crary, Cummings, Cobbey
and Hill. There were other scattering votes.
How IT Works.-The great millionaire, Ste?
phen Girard, who rose to wealth from a poor
penniless boy, believed In advertising. He
said : "I have always considered advertising
liberally and long to be ihe -rear medium ot
success In business and a prelude lo wealth.
And I have made lt an Invariable mle to ad?
vertise lu the dullest time, long experience
having laught me that money mus spent is
well laid out; ap, by keeping my business con?
tinually before the public, lt has secured me
many sales I would otherwise have lost."
-The Loudon Fire Brigade consUts of fitly
fire stations, ninety-three escape stations, fifty?
one telegraph Hues, one hundred and lour tire
escapes, twenty-lve steamers, eighty-three
hand-engines and three hundred and eighty
seven firemen. There are also three river en?
gines, which He In ihe river with the steam
always up. The brigade ls under the com?
mand of Captain Shaw, whose system and
general management are highly praised by
the London press. Befoie Joining the brigade,
each man is seut to a training sun ion to test
his fitness for the post, should the aspirant
pass successfully through this prelirr^nary or?
deal, he ls carefully Instructed in everything
connected with his new prole.-sion, nor ls he
allowed to act as a fireman until he really is
one. Most ot the men belonging to the bri?
gade, as well as their lamilles, wnen they are
married, are lodged for a nominal rent In the
stations. Oa eulering the service, the pay 1B
a little less than five dollars a week. Every
mau ls personally kuown lo Captain bhaw,
and promotion, wulcn, of course, involves in?
crease ol' pav, ls by merit aloue. Whenever a
man is ill he receives tull pay until he re?
covers, unless he has ac Ihe commencement of
his il,ness concealed lt. No one ls entitled to
a retiring pension, but any one who deserves
it ls aware that lt will be granted to him.
