Colonel R. 13. Rhett formerly of the
Charleston Mercury inct Judge Coolcy
of Now Orleans near Montgomery Sta
tion, in a duel, and the latter was killed
after the second lire. The weapons used
were 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, tho "Picayune," in which Judge
Cooley was counsel.
At Virginia City, Nevada, ten persons

MISS ALBERGOTTI'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, ajRl the special care manifest
ed fur the moral training of the children
placed under the charge of tho principal,
affords advantages which are seldom to
ho had in similar institutions. The in
centive which "impels every effort of the
child and movcs.it to success, is a desire
to please its teacher, this acts as a charm
overall the scholars, and a generous
rivalry animates tho cntiro 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 and review of studies, there was
a charming treat of recitationfroin sev
eral of of the scholars. Master E. Glo
ver led off with a happy little speech,
"Vacation." Misses Mary and Ella
Rull, nnd Misses Bella DoTrevillo and
Carrie Izlar, formed a quartette of bright
descanters on "The Birds." The "evan
gelical dialogue!' by Misses Ado DoTro
ville and Fanny Jenney was rendered
in a felicitous style. Miss Minnie Ed
wards seemed to appreciate the fervor of
thought which glowed in the author of
tho "Two Cities," in her recitation of
that beautiful piece. Miss Julia Jcnnoy's
rendering of the "Sncrilgeous Gamesters"
was an achiovmcnt of study and taste.?
Miss Fanny Jcnncy's "Editor," would
have repaid the attention of tho crowd,
who think the tripod a bed of roseate
case; "Look Aloft," by Miss Abbe Hut
son, "Life," by Miss Emily [Scoviljc,
and tho "Miser" by Miss Lena Jeffords,
were till bcautif\il!y delivered. "Que
ries,"' by Miss Bessie Glover; "The May
Queen," by Miss Goorgio' N?rrls; "Con
found Arithmetic," by . Miss Mary Bull,
"The School Room," by Miss Lucy Dan
ner, "Tho Littlo-Family," by Miss Otis
Whitniore, "Adieu," by Miss Lizzie
?Bull, "Sorrow and Joy," by Miss Clara
Wiles, and "Morniug and Noon," by Miss
Neta Sifley, were pieces ail rendered in
a tasteful and creditable style. Master
Charles Danncr told of the "Thoughtless
Youug Muu," and Master Thcodoro Jef
fords actually was radiant in his "Clo3C
of Term," and full of hopes ? of bright
holiday. After 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 DcTrevillc.
3d prize Miss Julia Jouney.
A Tic was made between Misses Lizzie
Bull and Fanny Jenney, for tho 4th
In the primary department the prize
was won by Muster Thcodoro Jeffords.
Owing to sickness, and not entering
until several weeks after the session hud
commenced Misses Edwards and Rick'en
backer did not compete for prizes. Tho
morale and tone of the school is of the
highest order, and reflects credit upon the
teacher who so fully deserves the reward
of a popular and prosperous institution.
Mr. Editor:?What must wo do when
our papers and letlors 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 never fails, unless something
is wrong in the P. O. I also bad a very
important letter put in the oflice at Or
angcburg.on 21st which has not reached
me yet. Now Mr. Editor, if your paper
had been the only one missing I should
have blamed you, but when there are so
many missiug at one time the P. M. must
be at fault, and that P. M. is at Fort
Motte. Can you please call his atten
tion to tho fact, and perhaps it may be
of some good to our community. ^ ^
[We received the nbovo, and publish
it that the Fort Motte, P. M. may have
his say so. It is no small matter to have
letters and papers misscnt or held back
and every care should be observed in
giving people the benefits intended by a

Charleston, July 2, 1873.
"Blessed be the man who invented
sleep, said "S?nchb Panza," and in the
same spirit, we are inclined to say,?
blessed bo 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 closo. damp
nights?when every day appears as hot
as it can possibly be, and wo only realize
how much hotter it can become, by com
paring to-da) with the day proceeding?
and when the song of tho mosquito "is
heard in the land." It is a fearful sub
ject for contoniplation, 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, (Lcs dams mos) pursuo this
murderous employment?but facts aro
.stubborn things, and naturalists assure
us that this is tho 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 aro aboriginees
of our coast, or whether imported in the
clothes or trunks of the early settlers?
wc 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 whore their forefath
ers nourished. To "bo fruitful and mul
tiply," is a command they admirably
illustrate?tho number of births in their
family always being greatly in excess of
the deaths. Their appetite is insatiate,
and their behavior while feeding denotes
exquisite enjoyment?plunging their proj
bosis or siphon deep into tho skin of the
unlihppy victim, the hind legs more in
kicks of perfect satisfaction, and tl\e
whole body quivers in an ccstacy of de
light. Their temperament is highly
courageous, no peril prevent* their dc
predat'ioin?, no danger deters them-^and
their triumplmut strains arc heard,;, its
tho object of their attack engages in
fruitless cflbrts for their extermination.
.Not the least interesting of tho very
few sights to bo seen about our city, is
the "diving apparatus," now used in
the harbor by Professor MaHlefert, for
tho recovery of iron, and other valuable
stuff from tho wrecks of boats "sunk*,
mostly duriug tho war : portions of the
"Hoosatonic," tho "Keokuk," and-^?
Confederate gunboats, havo already been
obtained, the Professor possesses a diver
among hi3 employees who almost rivals
"Nicolo Pcscc," in boldness and intre
pidity, for a costume ; he wears a suitaf
rubber, fitting very closo, and perfectly
watertight, covering his head and a part
of tho shoulders, is a kind of metal hel
met, having in frout a pieco' of glaas
through which to sec, tubes attached to
this contrivance supply tlm driver wifTrj
air, and large leaden weichts aro attach
ed to dffercnt portions of his person; ar
rayed in this fashion the diver can Wore
a very long time under tho water. Some
time since, a shark of the largest kind
was seen playing around tho boat from
which our diver launches?down how |
ever he went as unconcernedly, as if the1
fish had been in tho middle of the Atlan^l
tic ocean. On coining up ho Was asked]
whether ho had seen tho fish, "No,"
was the reply, "but I felt him,' as heJ
dashed gassed, aud I judge from his be^
havior he whsi vory 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 Peace," 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 tho 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 swam 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 sen, observed what
they took to be a "Sea Monster," but on
drawing w""-?' P*tn,*''iAiA3" \"
tun sea was very Inch, 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 swimmersj the spaces bctwen
hie fingers and toes being webbed like a
goose, and his chest was so spacious, that
one inhallntion, would serve him the en
tire day. For a man of such rare powers
?lite 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 calf 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 the service of his
country, at lonst 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 the trying nature of their du
ties, wc commend to the public sympathy
the mail carryers. The patience exhibit
ed by .Job, was trifling in comparison to
what theso gentlemen will be called on
to display; we suppose, at least one fifth
of tho houses here nave neither bells or
knockers?at these the post-man will bo
obliged to try various little devices to
make himself h?ard?and when there aro
bells or knockers, the usual delay of our
servants will cause him, if he is pious, to
assume a martyr like expression, and if
otherwise, to rdiit his feelings in some of
those strong expressions for which the
English language js so celebrated.
