ltev. Edward Lawrence and Jacob Legar*
-were ordained as Gospel ministers;
while seven others-viz. Wm. Dart, Nel
ford Moore, Step Collins, Edward Carter
James "Washington, Jae* Broughton an<
Beverly Carter-were chosen deacons.
The Israelites of Charleston have ei
tabliehed a mutual association, which thc
call the Bicker Cholem-a name which, ii
our ignorance of the Hebrew, we are no
prepared to make more intelligible to ou
readers. V ? presume that it covers
meaning of significant benevolence. Th
members elect are Morris Ehrlich, Pres
dent; J. Meyer, Vice Presideut; Josep
Levy, Treasurer; Lewis Alexander? Firs
Justice; Victor Wolf, Second Justic
Philip Rich, Secretary.
A meeting of citizens of Orangeburj

AFFRAY ON TH? CHARLESTON BATTERY.
From the Charleston Courier, of the 19th,
we learn that a sensational affair took
place on the Battery the previous after?
noon, which greatly enlivened the scene,
even if it did not add to its pleasures.
Uh genteltcmoune d'Afrique, rejoicing in
newly made and richly colored wings,
cavorted in some fashion at the expense of
a lady of the Caucasian race*. The ser?
geant, with four men on guard at the spot,
ordered the sable gentleman to vamose^
and on his refusing to obey, pioceeded to
arre it bira. Whereupou certain brethren
came to his relief, and a general melee
wa? the ceusequence. Brick-bats flew and
blood flowed. Private Jesse Rayeur was
badly wounded on the head, and sundry
black and white civilians and soldiers also
received the stab. The appearance of
Gen. natch upon the sceDe arrested the
conflict, which threatened no small amount
Ex SENATOR TOOMBS.-There was a re?
port at Nashville that ex-Senator Toombs,
of Georgia, escaping from his captors, but
still hotly pursued, made his escape finally
by suicide-having cut his own throat; but
the report is doubtful, as we hoar of it
only through Baltimore.
TAX ON COTTON.-By a recent proclama]
tiou of President Johnson, the twent}'-five
per cent, tax on cotton has been removed.
The export duty of three per cent, alone
remains. In accordance with this procla?
mation, the Secretary of the Treasury has
ordered the discontinuance of the United
States purchasing agencies.
L..W. Spratt, Esq., Dr. J. S. Buist and
Dr. S. Chalborne Brown, are announced in
Charleston as recent arrivals, to the great"*
satisfaction of their professional and per?
SKCTTETARY TRENnoLM.-Secretary Tren
holm left here 6 o'clock Saturday evening,
on board the steamer Wm. P. Clyde, for
Port Royal. It is believed he is to bo con?
fined in Fort Pulaski. The demonstrations
of respect and sympathy for this unfortu?
nate but noble hearted gentleman and
public spirited citizen of Charleston, since
his arrival here, have boen universal. The
grief among the poorer classes, t? whom
he hes always been a benefactor, was in?
tense. A petition to President Johnson
I for the special pardon of Mr. Tienholm
was drawn up, and has been very, extcu
sively signed. Lieut Sayers, of the 56th
New York, accompanied Mr. Trenholm to
Port Royal.- Charleston Courier, I'Jth.
A detachment of the 9th Ohio troops
arrived here on Sunday afternoon, and no
little stir was exhibited by the colored
imputation, who swarmed these visitors
ike bees around a gum. Their reception
was cool and threw a damper on theil
feelings, water being squirted on them by I
the 9lh Ohio, and other indignities. Satis?
fied with this the" crowd dispersed. The
detachment consisted of fifteen men, under
command of a lieutenant, and were sent
here as a guard to conduct specie depo?
sited I'D the bank of Newberry to Chester.
They left ou Monday morning.
On the 3d inst., the Government steamer
Tristram Shandy, from Fortress Monroe,
having on board James A. Seddon, late
rebel Secretary of War; Judge Campbell,
formerly rebel Assistant Secretary of War
and One of the Hampton -Roads Pe*ace
Commissioners; and R. M. T. Huntor, late
one of the rebel Senators from Virginia,
arrived at Fort Pulaski, Savannah River,
to. which stronghold these men were com?
mitted to await their trial for treason.

A glorious rain on Thursday for the
gardens. Much thunder and lightning
afterwards, but the storm passed East?
ward, and probably showered famously
over our sister'city of Camden. And still,
as we write, on Friday, the skies lower,
and wear au uncertain aspect. Our vege--|
table world, in this thirsty soul, would not
suffer from another draught, though not
now needing it. If the seasoti continues
showery, late corn will repay the farther,
and cow peas console the cattle, with
pleasant autumn pastures.
TKADK IN COLUMBIA.-We have much
pleasure in reporting to country mer?
chants, and tho farming population gene?
rally of the surrounding country, that the
merchants of Columbia are now prepared
to supply any orders, from a fish-hook to
an elephant, from a cambric needle to a
steam eugine, from a> thimble to a black?
smith shop. Large stocks, and every va?
riety of goods; the useful and the orna?
mental; the solid and the beautiful; for
man or woman; for the working" man and
the fashionable belle; for all classes, al}
uses, domestic, plantation, household or
farm. Some twenty-five trading houses
are now open in Columbia, in every part
of the city, with shelves and counters
crowded Irom floor to ceiling; and the
articles, so far as we have been able to
ascertain, are at prices within the reach
of all classes. The commodities contem?
plate not merely the absolute needs of the
people, but their wants and wishes; jiot
only the prime necessities of life, but its
luxuries HIBO. The merchants are fr?><; to
barter, as well aa sell. All the commodi?
ties of the farmer, producer, mechanic and
manufacturer, are taken at reasonable
prices. There is a general stir along the
Btreets, and a genial looking-up in society*
The motto is, "Xever say die."

Orders were received nt F?rt Warren,
Boston Harbor, on Friday last, for the re?
lease of all rebel prisoners under the rank
of captain confined there, after they had
taken the oath of allegiance, and on Sa?
turday between thirty and forty of these
men, mostly of Mosby's guerillas, were
liberated and conveyed to Boston, whence
they were furnished with transposition
to their homes. They generally expr.-ssed
satisfaction with their treatment while
prisoners, and avowed their determination
to hereafter cheerfully support the Govern?
ment.-Nae York Herald.

A GOOD TIMK IN EBGEFIELD, S. C.
-Judging by the following from the
Advertiser, thc people are r.ot much
subjugated, or intend to be jolly over
their misfortunes. That paper says:
Some of our kindliest and ?most
refined Indies got up a pic-nic last week
for the entertainment of tho young
people of tho village-especially the
youthful soldiers who have so lately
arrived from scenes of strife aod hard?
ship. And of all the pie-nics we have
ever seen, or experienced, or been
guilty of, jt was the "merriest and
blithest, and most comfortable. Gray
coat^and brass buttons,and tinsel braid
ery, and handsome faces and braye man?
ly young hearts, were io full folfce and
feather. And the owners of the said
hearts seemed frantic to dispose of the
same theo and there, and many did, we
bs.veno,doubt. And ullthecharmingest, '
belovedest, mischievousest, brightest
eyed girls iu Edgefield (and where are
they more charming and brighter
eyed?) were also there. And many
of them went away with the be'ore
meutioued manly hearts in their keep?
ing. And we would advise them to
keep very tight hold on their booty,
as hearts of '.hat gender have become
And there were thirty or forty" feet
of hams, turkeys, fowl3 ?tc, to say
nothing of cakes, pies and fruits; Ajid
never did we see such endless and ani
matedjdancing. The fiddlers and tam?
bonners were faithful and long-suffer
int*. And everybody and everything
did his and its duly. And it is all .
right to have pic nics, and give them
and to go to them. Many people will
say that when the great temporal or'
spiritual interests of men are endanger?
ed, it is very well to be grave and
sedate and deliberate till the battle ia
fought out. That is all very true.
But we must not forget that one of the
great reformers was one of the jolliest
of men and that his opponents say,
"All Luther's table talk was about
wine, women and song.", Aud be?
sides, very young people should not be
expected to be grave, sedate and
deliberate.. There is not a sadder
spectacle this side of the chain gang,
than a set of melancholy young
women and straight laced boys. Man
is a laughing animal-the laughing
animal. No other animals laughs."
And it is a crime not to use every fa?
culty with which. God Las endowed u*.
Therefore, "laugh and grow fat," which
means laugh and do your duty.
THE CAPTURE OF GOVERNOR LET
CHER, OF VIRGINIA.-EX-GOV. Letch er,
of Virginia, was captured by ?detach?
ment of the Twenty-second and Fifth!
New York cavalry, under the rom- j
marni of Major Mowle, an Aid-de-Camp |
on General 'lorbert s. staff. They left
Winchester on t i ie morning of the
17lh, and arrived at. Staunton on the
evening of the 19th ult., at seven
o'clock. An additienal detail was
made by Gen. Dttvall of 150 of the
Filth New York cavalry. At three,
a. m., on the 1 Otb? they started for
Lexington, and arrested Let cher about,
four o'clock in the morning. They
had orders-to arrest Extra Billy Smith
also, but were three days too late.
Letcher said he did not see why he
should ' be arrested, and said if the
Secretary of War had sent him notice
that, ho wanted to sec him he would
have come along. Maj. Moore told him
that ?nail arrangements were not very
perfect in the Valley, and therefore the
other method of securing his presence
was considered preferable.
