Speaking of the election, tho Cou?

and tho election passed off without
tho occasion of auy disturbance that

no hesitation in pronouncing it tho
mobt quiet election wo have ever
known, lt may be proper to state
that muuy votes woro rejected as
fraudulent, for several reasons: firwt,
many doublo votes wero polled, and,
secondly, many ballots were deposit?
ed in tho wrong box. Notwithstand?
ing thoso drawbacks, wc believe a very
full vote waa polled.

MK. EDITOB: We uudoretand that
it in the intention of the young men
composing tho proposed brass band,
to .'take np n collection for tho pur
poso of pnrobasing Instrumenta, and
the object cf this communication ia
to nrge oar oitizens to contribute as
liberally as possible to this enterprise.
Every ono will admit that wo need
snob an institution among na, and
where there exists as much musical
talent as 1 here is in Columbia, we soo
no reason why we should not liavo a
capital band. Messrs. Churlos Har*
rison and Riobard Weam have kind"
ly consented to solicit subscriptions
for them, and will call upon our citi?
zens in a few days for that purpose.
Mr. W. D. Pock will also rocoivo any
contributions which may bo given
him. The funds, when oolleoted,
wil bo placed in tho hands of Mr. R.
L. Bryan, who will order tho instru?
ments; and when tho instruments are
received, a board of trustees will be
chosen, into whoso custody tho in?
struments will revert in case of thc
dissolution of tho band, to bc retain?
ed by thom for any other party that
may wish to use them. Thus, it will
be seen, the instruments will remain
the property of tho citizens, and we
may always have a band among us.
Let our citizens contribute liberally,
and secure good instruments.

FATAL. AFFRAY IN AUGUSTA.-About
'? o'clock, on Thursday, a row com
racuced between a whito roan and a
negro, which resulted in the killing
of Albert Ruffiu, the County Sheri tl',
and ono negro. Tho excitement was
iuteuse, but through tho infleuco of
leading citizens and tho co-operation
of the military, both parties dis?
persed quietly and order was.restored,
each party accusing the other uf
being responsible for tho difficulty.
In consequence of tho threats of eer
tuin negroes, it was deemed necessary
to patrol the city, a detail of citizens
having volunteered to do so, nuder
the orders of the military.

OATCHIN? MATT. BAOS.-One of the
most interesting features of the post?
al oar system, that ie now reda oed to
a science on' the Northern railroads,
ia the "catohlng service." by which
the mails are taken up at the stations
along tho route without checking the
speed of the trains. The bag is
hang on a frame erected beside the
track, so as to be within the reach of
the agent. On the side of the oar is
an iron% arm, which is operated by
means of a handle neting as a lever.
As the train approaches the station,
a bag is dropped from the car win?
dow, tho arm is thrown out and the
suspended poach is caught up and
wedged firmly against the side of tho
car in tho joint of tho V formed by
tho oxtended iron rod. It is then
immediately opened and sorted, and
tho mail for tho next station is inado
up and placed ready to be thrown
out. This process is repeated many
times along the route, and thc con?
stant reception sud delivery of mails
adds greatly to the labors of the
A new but very effective method
of separating colored peoplo from
white has been discovered in Spring?
field, Massachusetts. Tho Republican
relates that .Marcus Tourtellotte, of
that city, in order to compel the
colored Methodist church, in Loring
street, to sell its premises, has built
a fence around tho church ns high as
tho eaves, only eighteen inches dis?
tant on ono side, and nbout a yard
on the other. To render it still moro
offensive, tho fence is painted black
ou the sido next to tho church. Tho
church is, of course, rendered dark
in thc midst of day, and the heat on
hot Sabbaths is absolutely stilling.
Tho reason assigned for this persecu?
tion is that tho peoplo aro noisy.
What a place for sportsmen some
portions of California must be! A
gentleman, writing from San Buena?
ventura, says that rabbits, hares,
quails, ground-squirrels, and other
birds and animals aro to bo counted
there by thousauds, and that he shot
a buggy load of them in au hour or
two, without leuviug bis seat. Ho
killed, on ono occasion, .two rabbits
at ono shot, nud three at another.
In the last instance, ho only saw one,
but when he went to pick it up from
the sido of a bush, ho found two
others, kicking their death-throes
alongside! Indeed, game is so plen?
tiful there, that farmers ure obliged
to kill it oft* with poison in order to
8uvo their crops from being cnteu up.
