AN INDIONANT ORCHESTRA CONDUCTOR.
Wheu we first became acquainted with
Skinner, he was the leader of the orches?
tra at ooo of the theatres. And while
he was acting in that capacity they got
up some kind of a fairy spectacle, for
which .Skinner provided choice music.
LCe was particularly proud of au over?
ture arranged by himself. It was copied
out by hand, and it happened most un?
fortunately that tho copies wore not
finished iu time for rehorsul, and so
Skinner had to take the chances ot the
musicians gutting it right on tho first
attempt in tho presence of tho audience.
A couple of hours before the theatre
opened Skinner weut around aud placed
the music upon the stands of tho orches?
tra. Ten minutes afterwards, wheu
Skinner had gone away, a friend of his
namod Browu, came in and saw the
music, and for tho Bake of playing a
little joko on Skinner, he gathered up
all that music, and replaoed it with an
old lot of sheets, containing fragmentary
musio of about twenty different kinds,
which he found in a closet in tho orches?
tra room. After a while the audience
assembled. Skinner brought in his
musicians, took his place, and whisper?
ed to tho players to exercise exceeding
care. Then Skinner gave a couplo of
taps with his batou, aud tho orchestra
went into action iu furious earnest. It
was awful. There was a most terrific
discord, with six or seven different kinda
of time, twenty varieties .of tunes and
such a jangling, und tooting, und scrap?
ing, that ull the women in tho audience
jumped to their feet and eoreamed. Tho
first violinist exerted himself to saw out
a passage from "Martha;" tho mun with
thu flute struiued himself until he was
red iu tho face, ovor na air fretu "Stab it
Mater;" tho doublc-bnss mun engaged
in a futile effort to interpret tho "L ist
Rose of Summer;" tho clarionet shrieked
ont thu "Little Brown Jug," while thu
drummer, finding that ho could not play
tho "Faust" march, hammered away ut
raudom. Skinner was wild with ama/, J
meut and rago. lie looked cross-03'id
for a momeut at the trombone man, who
was attacking "See, tho Conquering
Hero Carnes," with intense earnestness,
and thou, throwing down his baton, ho
gavo ono ferocious yell, aud leaped upon
tho trombono man, with murder in II?B
eyo. They had it out right there iu the
orchestra, and it lasted just five ment?tes,
amid the cheers of tho audience, until
Skinner, having jammed one leg through
tho drum, and torn away a quurter of u
milo of fiddle-Btrings with lu.; fist, landed
the trombone maa in the body of tho
bnss viol, and smashed that sweet in?
strument into kindling wood. They had
no overture thnt evening, aud another
mun had to load what was loft of tho
band, for Skinner went homo. Ho is
still hunting for the man who changed
tho musio. When he finds Mr. Brown,
there will bo a still more terrific combat.

Turning his bend, ho saw a mau armed

spurring up his animal to escape, was

than ii Booro of years ugo she hud sailed,

sionary husband for "India's corni

Arabian coast, und nil ou board perished
save her husband and herself. Ho wus
preserved only lo fall ii viclim to Arah
cruelty und she ti? Arab shivery. While
her beauty lasted ?ho was thu favorite
wife nf the mont powerful chief iu tho
South Arabian Desert, but wheu that
waned she fell from her "bad eminence '
uud was transferred to the harem of an
inferior sheik. And sn she lived, prayed
for death, but not daring to die, till,
baudied from one barbarian to another,
she, a Boston lad}*, in whose veins flowed
tho purest Puritan blood, found herself
the wife of au Arabian water carrier.
From his power an American traveler
freed her and provided her with the
means to renell home.
BRITISH SOUTH SKA SLAVE TRAD::.
Tho report recently made iu Parliament
upon the slave trade, which hus buen
curried on for the past iifteeu years
under thu British flag among the South
Pacido Islands, gives a particular ac?
count of its methods as well us extent.
Per hs ps tho most cburaclorisUo ruse ol
these slave-tradora was to take advuutngo
of tho great und nobie reputation of
Bishop Pattersou in tue South-western
seas. Tho kidnapper would go ashore
at "the Swallows," "the Solomons," or
"tho Loyalty Islands," dressed in ti
white surplice, and would proceed to
hold with his mate and crew a sham reli?
gious 6crvieo ou tho bench. Accus?
tomed to hear of tho good bishop and
his priests, tho natives threw asido sus?
picion and cheotfully accompanied tho
white hypocrite on board, whereupon
tho anchor was got up, aud the vessel
sailed off. Such, say? a correspondent,
aro but specimens of the villainy which
has gone on, nod, by this last horrible
piece of evidence, is still going on uuder
tho British flag, nod for tho benefit of
tho British colonies.
A most terrible a oident occurred in
Aiken on Saturday afternoon last by tho
careless uso of fire-arms, whioh resulted
in the death of a most estimable young
colorod woman, named Mary Williams.
It seems that a colored youth, named
George Wilson, who was at tho time in
the yard of tho deceasod, was exhibiting
a pistol whioh he possessed, and while
handling it the pistol exploded, the ball
entering directly under the left shoulder
and penetrating tho lungs, causing death
in u few moments. A jury of inquest
was om pan nu! ed, who, ofter tho exami?
nation of a good mauy wituesses, re?
turned the following verdict: "That
Mary Williams came to her deuth by a
ball from a pistol in tho bauds of Geo.
Wilsou, aud that it was by accident; but
tho jury censure George Wilfou for tho
careless manner in which he handled
said pistol." Tho deceased was a step?
sister of George Wilsou. Such careless?
ness as is ovideuced iu thc testimony ad?
duced is really criminal.

We regret to record that this Tearful dis?
enso is still doing its work of death in
certain sections of this County. Quite
a number have died since our last issue,
and it is said that not one in five recover.
Tho attack is sudden, and but a few
hours iuterveue ero tho victim attacked
censen to live. It is not a littlo remark?
able that it is ooufiued entirely to the
colored population, not u siugie white
person, so far as we have heard of, being
affected ; und this fact hus excited the
superstition of ibo plantation negroes to
a considerable extent. One of tho popu?
lar ideas is that the spring at Bush Uiver

those who have not yot drank of tho
