Colonel R. B. Rhctt formerly of the
Charleston Mercury met Judge Coolcy
of Now Orleans near Montgomery Sta
tion, in a duel, and the latter was killed
after the second fire. The weapons used
wero double barrel shot guns, distance
forty yards. Col. Rhett was accompan
ied by his friends Dr. J. Dickson Bruns,
and Mr. Charles Roman. The duel grew
out of a libel suit against Col. Rhett's
paper, the "Picayune," in which Judge
Cooley was counsel.
At Virginia City, Nevada, ten persons
were killed and many wounded by an

MISS ALDERGOTTI'S ACADEMY.
Was closed for vacation on last Wcd
nesday the 25th, and will remain closed
during the Summer months, affording
that mental and bodily recreation so
much needed both to teacher and scholar.
The career of this popular and estab
lished school has been a success since its
opening, and each session adds to the
roll of its scholars. The faithfulness and
thoroughness of the mode of instruction
imparted, and the special care manifest
ed for the moral training of the children
placed under the charge of the principal,
affords advantages which are seldom to
ho had in similar institutions. The in
centive which 'impels every effort of the
child and moves.it to success, is a desire
to please its teacher, I his acts as a charm
overall the scholars, and a generous
rivalry animates the entire class room.
The exercises of examination showed a
proficency and degree of study, that re
warded both child and preceptress, and
covered fully the capacity of the exami
nees. Upon tho conclusion of the exam
ination aud review of studies, there was
a charming treat of recitation from sev
eral of of the scholars. Master E. Glo
ver led off with a happy liltlo speech,
"Vacation." Misses Mary and Ella
Bull, nnd Misses Belle DoTrevillo and
Carrie Izlar, formed a quartette of bright
descanters on "The Birds." The "evan
gelical dialoguo" by Misses Ada DoTro
ville and Fanny Jennoy was rendered
in a felicitous style. Miss Minnie Ed
wards seemed 1q appreciate the fervor of
thought which glowed in the author of
tho "Two Cities," in her recitation of
that beautiful piece. Miss Julia Jenney 's
rendering of tho "Saerilgeous Gamesters"
was an achiovmcnt of study and taste.?
Miss Fanny Jcnney's "Editor," would
havo repaid the attention of the crowd,
who think the tripod a bed of roseate
ease; "Look A loft," by Miss Abbo 11 ut
son, "Eric," by Miss Emily (Scovillo,
and the "Miser" by Miss Lena Jeffords,
were all beautifully delivered. "Que
ries/' by Miss Bessie GlovefT ''Tbc May
Quecn." by Miss Gcurgio' Norris, "G\m
found Arithmetic," by .'Bliss Mary Bull,
"The School Room," by Miss Lucy Dan
ger, "Tho Little Family," by Miss Otis
Whitnioro, "Adieu," by Miss Lizzie
?Buii, "Sorrow and Joy/' by Miso Clara
Wiles, and "Morning and Noon," by Miss
Neta Sifley, were pieces all rendered in
a tasteful and creditable stylo. Master
Charles Danner told of tho "Thoughtless
Young Man," and Master Theodore Jef
fords actually was radiant in his "Close
of Term," and full of hopes ? of bright
holiday. Atter five months of hard
study, and closo application, both of
scholars and teacher, the list of prizes
was read, and awarded. .
1st prize Miss Lena Jeffords.
2d prize Miss Ada DeTrovillc.
3d prizo Miss Julia Jcnney.
A Tic was made between Misses Lizzie
Bull and Fanny Jenney, for tho 4th
In tho primary department the prize
was won by Master Tiieodorc Jeffords.
Owing to sickness, and not entering
until several weeks after the session bud
commenced Misses Edwards and Ricken
backer did not compcto for prizes. Tho
morale and touc of the school is of the
highest order, and reflects credit upon the
teacher who so fully deserves tho reward
of a popular and prosperous .institution.
Mr. Editor:?What must wo do when
our papers and let'lors cannot be received
from the office where they are sent? I
did not get your ever welcome Times last
week, and the same with the S. C. Advo
cate, which ucver fails, unless something
is wrong in the P. O. I also had a very
important letter put in the office at Or
angeburg#on 21st which has not reached
me yet. Now Mr. Editor, if your paper
had been the only ono missing I should
have blamed you, but when there are so
many missing at one time the P. M. must
be at fault, and that P. M. is at Fort

[FROM OUR CHARLESTON CORRESPONDENT.]
Charleston, July 2, 1S73.
"Blessed be the man who invented
sleep, said "Sancho Panza," and in the
same spirit, we are . inclined to sap,?
blessed be the man who invented ico,
and all manner of cold contrivance,"
calculated to cool and refresh scorching
humanity, during the long hot sultry
days of summer, and the close , damp
nights?when every day appears as hot
as it cau possibly be, and we only realize
how much hotter it can become, by com
paring to-day with the day proceeding?
and when the song of the mosquito "is
beard in the land." It is a fearful sub
ject for contemplation, that this savage
little creature lives entirely on man, and
draws its subsistence from our most vital
principle?and it is mortifying to chron
icle, that only the "fair sex" of the mos
quito race, (Les dams mos) pursue this
murderous employment? but facts aro
stubborn things, and naturalists aSsuro
us that this is Iho case. The origin of
the insect like that of a higher class of
a "dusky color," is involved in tho deep
est mystery, whether they arc aboriginees
of our coast, or whether imported in the
clothes or trunks of tho early settlers??
we have not been able to ascertain. It
is however very evident, that the air and
climate agree* wonderfully well with them
and they evince no disposition to emi
grate, but arc seemingly well content
to abide in the land where their forefath
ers llourishcd. To "bo fruitful and mul
tiply," io n command they admirably
illustrate?tho number of births in their
family always being greatly in excess of
the deaths. Their appetito is insatiate,
and their behavior while feeding denotes
exquisite enjoyment?plunging their proj
1)0818 or siphon deep into tho skin of the
unhappy victim, the hind legs more in
kicks of perfect satisfaction, and tin?,
whole body quivers in an ecstacy of do
light. Their temperament is highly
courageous, no peril prevents their do
prcdations, r.o danger deters them?and
their triumplinnt strains nro heard, its
the object of their attack engages in
fruitless efforts for their extermination.
. Not tho least interesting of tho very
few sights to ho scon about our city; is
tho "diving apparatus," now used in
tho harbor by Professor ^Malllefort, for
tho recovery of iron, and other valuable
Bluff from tho wrecks of boats *sunk,
mostly during the war; portions1 of the
"Koosatomc,,> the "Keokuk," and the
Confederate gunboats, hnvo already boon
obtained, tho Professor possesses a div^r
among his employees who almost rivajs
"Nicolo Pesce," in boldness and intre
pidity, for a coscume; he wears a suit.of |
rubber, fitting very close, and perfectly
watertight, covering his head and a part
of tho shoulders, is a kind of metal hel
met, having in front a piece* of glasrf
through which to see, tubes attached to
this contrivance supply tho driver wiftc
air, and large leaden weichts are attach
ed to dfierenfc portions of his person; ar
rayed in this fashion the.diver can Wore
a very long time under the water. Some
timo since, a shark of the largest kind
was seen playing around tho boat from
which our diver launches?down how*
ever be went as unconcernedly, as if the
fish had been in tho middle of the Atlam
tic ocean. On coming up he "Was asked
whether ho had seen tho fish, "No,"
was the reply, "but I felt him, as he'
dashed gassed, and I judge from his be*
havior he was very hungry." It would
appear that the shark, who is a veritable,
coward among fishes, although the most*
blood-thirsty, is frightened by the strange
dress of the diver, and fails to recognize
the "nice morsel" when put up in a cov
ering of rubber and metal.
Having spoken of "Nicolo Pescc," it
may be not uninteresting, to give a short
account of this very remarkable person
age. He lived in the times of Freder
ick King of Sicily, and was from his
amazing powers in swimming, sur
namcd "the fish ;" from his infancy he
had .supported himself by the oysters and
coral, which he dove for, and then sold
to the villagers on the coast. He was
frequently known to spend five days at a
time in the midst of the waves, living on
the fish which he caught, (this we con
sider as fishy.) He often swaai over
from Sicily into Calabria, carrying the
letters of the King, (there were no pos
tal cards cards in those days).. Some
mariners, once out at sea, observed what
they took to bo a "Sea Monster," but on
.drawing dams-** ^-p.""-1 x~ V* '<-wl~i?
ttiosca was very high, and the weather
tempestuous but "Nicola" was carrying
correspondence as usual, and showed the
sailors the waterproof bag containing his
mail. This wonderful personage how
ever possessed a great anvantage over
ordinary swimmers; tho spaces betwen
his fingers and toes being webbed like a
goose, and his chest was so spacious, that
one inhallation, would serve him the en
tire day. For a man of such rare powers
?his end excites our pity?at the sug
gestion of the King, he dove down to.dis
cover if possible, what was at tho bottom
of the gulf of Charybdis, being further
induced by a gold cap the monarch had
ordered to be flung in, Nicholas was suc
cessful and brought up the cup, but in a
second attempt, in search of another cup
and purse, neither Nicholas, or the arti
cles were ever heard of again, and he
perished ; if not in tho service of his
country, at least in that, of his King.
Our Postal Card arrangements com
menced on the 1st. If any any set of men
deserve the compassion of their race, on
account of tho trying nature of their du
ties, wc commend to the public sympathy
the mail carryers. The patience exhibit
ed by dob, was trifling in comparison to
what theso gentlemen will be called on
to display; we suppose, at least one fifth
of the houses here have neither bells or
knockers?at these the post-man will bo
obliged to try various little devices to
make himself heard?and when thoro aro
bells or knockers, the usual delay of our
servants will cause him, if he-is pious, to
assume a martyr liko expression, and if
otherwise, to rent his feelings in some of
those .strong expressions for which the
English language js so celebrated.
