Yesterday morning Policeman Jones swooped down upon a crowd of naughty boys who were desecrating the Sabbath and violating the ordinances of the city, by play ing a base ball game in the southern portico of the city within the limits. Tne boys ske daddled when they saw the guardian coming for them, and several in their haste dropped their bats. The policeman, however, suc ceeded in capturing four of the crowd. - They were carried to the barracks but were subsequently released on bonds for appear ance tnis morning at the Police Court. We may here state that there has been complaint in regard to the conduct of these youthful base bailers who frequent the com mons in the vicinity of West Broad street. They generally have a game on Sun day afternoon, and on their return from the fields the vanquished in dulge their feelings by attacking the vic tors, contending that if they can’t beat them with the bail and bat they can with fists and stones. Yesterday evening about half-past six o'clock a regular skirmish took place between two of these clubs, the members of which range from six to twenty years, and brickbats were thrown around lively, to the great annoyance of peaceable pedestrians and parties on the street cars. The police might look after these young sters. The Steamer Carrie. The steamer Carrie was taken up on Jones’ Ways on Saturday for the purpose of being thoroughly overhauled and re modeled, and no pains or expense will be spared in carrying out the designs. The wood to be used on her upper works will be white pine, and the saloon is to be specially fitted up with a view to the comfort and convenience of the passengers. The engines of the late steamer W. T. Wheless, which are of anew pattern and are as good as when built, have been purchased, and will be substituted for her present en gines, which will thus give her greater speed. Iu consequence of the material that will be used she will draw less water than at present. She will not only have In creased passenger accommodations of a su perior order, but will have capacity for one thousand bales of cotton. When these re pairs are completed the Carrie will be placed on the route between this city and Augusta and run regularly. A Suspicious Darkey. About one o’clock yesterday morning, a colored man named Ganey Wilson discov ered a strange negro in his bouse under very peculiar circumstances. Wilson and his wife had retired at a seasonable hour on Saturday night, and, about the time mentioned, he suddenly awoke, and to his surprise found that a strange negro man was snoring alongside of him, his wife being on the other 6ide sound asleep. The stranger had apparently while drunk managed to get into the house and tumbled upon the bed aud fallen asleep with his boots on. Wilson promptly bounced the intruder and turned him over to Policeman Evans, who carried him to the barracks,where he gave his name as Wesley Bacon, and was registered as a suspicious character. A Row tn Yamtcttw. Last night about quarter to eight o’clock there was a very lively disturbance in a ranche near Cooper Shop lane, occupied by Henrietta Owens, colored, which attracted a large crowd of the denizens and created considerable excitement. Ser geant Harvey’s attention was also directed to the rumpus, and galloping to the place he discovered Cyrus Bolton, colored, who was under the Influence of liquor, engaged in beating Henrietta. He at once arrested Cyrus and carried him to the ! barracks, followed by a large number of negro men and women, who were anxious, apparently, to see Cyrus properly caged for the night. ■ Crazy or Drunk. Last night about half-past seven o’clock Policeman Malone encountered on the street a white man, bareheaded, barefooted, with his 6hirt half off him and his pants in immi nent danger of failing from his person at any moment, staggering along In an aimless sort of way. The fellow was either drunk or demented, and not being In a proper condition to roam about (he 6treet, he was conveyed to the barracks, where he gave his name as John Hanly. and was furnished with a lower floor for the night. A Successful Chicken Raid. On Saturday night, the premises of Eliza beth Eady, colored, on Margaret street, cor ner of Lumber, were Invaded by some ruth ■ less marauder, and an outbuilding contaln -1 ißg twenty odd chickens forced open, and the feathered bipeds removed. There were two dogs In the yard, but, strange to say, they gave no alarm, although the invader I must have made some noise in breaking apen the window to the house. Assault In the market. About quarter past nine o’clock yester day morning some excitement was created ,in the Market basement by the disorderly conduct of Lorey Butler, colored, who was drunk and was letting off hts surplus steam by assaulting Tom Brown.

About 12 o’clock Saturday night Policeman McCabe was called upon to arrest a drunken negro named Dick Washington, who had se lected a cosy spot on the front entrance of the Pulaski House and tumbled to sleep. Dick was aroused and waltzed off to the barracks. Mr. Dave West, a well-known employe at the Central Railroad shops In Macon, jumped out of his bedroom window while dreaming on Thursday night and fell on the sidewalk, a distance of eighteen feet. The fall awoke him, as may be supposed. No bones were broken, but be was considerably bruised. We are Informed that parties living In the eastern section of the city are subjected to considerable annoyance and the lives of their children endangered by the practice of boys driving the cows along the sidewalk when goiDg to or returning from pasturage. This is contrary to the ordinance and should be stopped. Punctured or punched dimes and nickels have growu to be such a nuisance that the government has decided on taking some action in the matter, and will investigate the subject to fiad whether the coins are not punched and perforated by a gang of men for the silver thus extracted from them, as is currently reported. At 11 o’clock Saturday night, Mr. J. J. Conley, living on East Boundary street, dis covered a negro concealed in his house. He immediately seized the intruder and marched him off to the barracks, where he gave bis Dame as Oliver Stafford, and was locked up to answer at roll call to-day in the Police Court, to the charge of being a suspicious character. A Gallant Act by a Savannah Boy. We are pleased to record a noble and gal lant act recently performed by a Savannah youth, which, as “the boy is father to the man,” indicates the character of the citizen he will be. Master Wm. Boban, son of Mr. John J. Boban, of this city, is a stu dent at Eastman’s College, Poughkeepsie, New York. Lately the students gave an excursion on the river, and as the steamer they were on was passing a certain point, two lads, la a small boat, at tempted to cross directly in front of her. The Captain did not see them in time to prevent a collision, and the bow of the steamer struck the small craft in the middle, completely over turning her and carrying the boys below. One of the boys succeeded in getting from under the boat and was hauled on board the steamer. The other, evidently caught In some way, was not seen, and it was feared he would be drowned. When this discovery was made young Bohan sprang upon the bottom of the capsized boat, and, at the risk of his life, began to feel under the boat for the missing lad. He finally struck one of the boy’s hands, and, grabbing blin, en deavored to haul him up, when he found that the unconscious boy’s jacket was caught in the row locks. After some diffi culty, he extricated him and hauled him up, when he was transferred to the steamer in a thoroughly exhausted condition. The proper restoratives were applied and he finally revived. But for the promptness and gallantry of young Bohan he would inevitably have been drowned. Beating Ills Mother. Dick Small, a brave warrior of the colored brigade, who had been imbibing too freely of mean whisky during Ssturday night, re turned to his domicile shortly after mid night in a very ugly humor. His aged mother happened to be up, and Dick com menced quarreling with her, and finally knocked his maternal parent down and began beating ber. Whilst engaged in tills villainous work, Policeman Fleming, whose attention bad been attracted by the cries for help, sauntered up and snatched Dick from the house and waltzed him to the barracks. It is to be hoped that the Mayor, this morning, will gtve Dick the opportunity of doing some honest labor and learning to behave himself in future. Tbe New Cornet. The new comet, concerning the appear ance of which a few nights since mention was made in these columns, can be seen be tween two and three o’clock in the morn ing. It ia located in the constellation of Aurigs, about eight degrees from Capella, and it is thought that it is the much expected comet of 1812 which should appear not far from that locality. The tall is estimated by astronomers to be not less than 15 degrees tn length, while tbe head is as bright as Jupiter’s. Captains of steamships and pilots coming into port re port its appearance at sea as being grand, it being distinctly visible to tbe naked eye. In our telegraphic columns will be found further interesting Information In reference to the starry visitor, Who has not known some specimen of “the bold yeomanry, their country’s pride,” who carried a Buckeye in his pocket, although ignorant that it contained virtues which have been utilized by Dr. Tabler in his Buckeye Pile Ointment, an excellent remedy for Piles or Hemorrhoids. je24-F J M,W&wlt SAVANNAH RIVER HAIL. Row the Route Gam* to Re B*tb llsbed—Brafiy Had Nothing to Bo With 11. Some days since we published an article from the Philadelphia Prut, under the cap tion of “One of the Useless Routes,” which began as follows: “The Postmaster Gen eral has ordered service discontinued on a steamboat route from Savannah, Ga., to Augusta, which, under the fostering care of General Brady, bade fair to become an im portant line for the contractor.” From Dr. J. H. Ruddell, of Barnwell. 8- C , the contractor, the Augusta Chronicle learns that Brady bad nothing whatever to do with giving out the contract for carrying the mails along the Savannah river. In fact, Dr. Ruddell never saw Brady In regard to it, nor did he have anything to do with the matter. The people on both sides of the Savannah river were very desirous to get a mail route, their mall facilities being very precarious, and a monster petition, asking that a route be established on tbe river, was gotten up. This was signed by prominent men in Augusta, Savannah, and on both sides of tbe river between these places. Strong letters were also written to the Georgia and South Carolina Sena tors, and to Representatives Tillman and Nicholls, asking their co-operation and assistance. This was very promptly given by all these distinguished gentlemen, and tbe matter was laid in proper shape be fore Postmaster General Key himself, not Brady, and was strenuously advocated by Messrs- Tillman and Nicholls, tbe one of South Carolina and the other of Georgia, who called upon the Postmaster General and presented tbe claims of the people along the proposed route for mail facilities. After considering the matter Postmaster General Key agreed with the petitioners that the route should be established, and be ac cordingly announced that he would let out a contract to carry a weekly mail between Augusta and Savannah, provided it did not cost more than $5,500 per annum. Dr. Ruddell offered to take it for $4,100, or $1,400 less than the Postmaster General was willing to give, and the contract was awarded to him. The amount for which Dr. Ruddell agreed to carry the mall was equal to fifteen dollars per mile, while the usual pay is twenty dollars. This contract went Into effect on July 1,1880, and con tinues until J uly 1,1881, or next Friday. Afterwards bids were advertised for to carry tbe mails on the route at the expiration of the present contract, and it was awarded to Dr. Ruddell as the lowest bidder. There was an application before the Postmaster General from the people along the route for a semi-weekly mail, and it was understood that this would be granted, and that it would go Into effect on July 1. Dr. Rud dell was very much surprised, therefore, on a recent visit to Washington city, to learn that the route would be cut off by Post master General James, after tbe expiration of the present contract this week. The route is perhaps the cheapest iu the United States for its length. It ie much needed by the people of South Carolina and Georgia adjacent to the river, and has the endorse ment of Senators Hill, BrowD, Hampton and Butler, and of Representatives Till man, Black and Stephens. The Postmaster General, therefore, in his commendable meaeures of reform and economy, bas evi dently acted under a wrong impression with regard to this route in abolishing it. We do not suppose that the government desires to deprive any part of the country of mail facilities. Burial of au ex-Confederate Soldier, We find tbe following in the Elizabeth (New Jersey) Journal. The veterans of the late war who attended the funeral of Mr. Price were the first to clasp hands with ex- Confederates at the termination of the civil struggle. Their present action is credita ble to them as soldiers and men: “The remains of the late W. O. Price reached this city from Savannah at noon to day, and were at once conveyed to Ever green Cemetery for interment —a detail from the Veteran Zouaves acting as pallbearers. Tbe Savannah News, in speaking of tbe de ce&sed savs: “ ‘Mr. Price was a native of Elizabeth, N. J., and was about 46 years of age. He ar rived in Savannah on the 14th of November, 1854, on the steamer Knoxville, from New York, and bas been a resident of this city ever since. His father kept a tailoring es tablishment at one time in this city, the firm being Price <fe Vieder. “ ‘The deceased was a member of Compa ny B. Oglethorpe Light Infantry, of ilia First Volunteer Regiment of Georgia, a.l was captured at Fort Pulaski. After b log ex changed he returned to Savannah and re entered the Confederate service, and was in the campaigns of North Georgia and Ten nessee. He was a gallant and faithful sol dier, and was highly esteemed by his com rades in arms ’ “Eighteen years ago the regiment to which deceased belonged guarded the Union prisoners of war In the Marine Hos pital grounds ia Savannah, and Gen. J. Madison Drake who to-day was one of the pall bearers, was among the number thus guarded.” Deallt on the Kail. Saturday afternoon a colored woman whose name we were unable to ascertain, was run over by an engine on tbe Savannah, Florida and Western Railway, about four miles from the city and instantly killed. We learn that the engine had met with a mishap at No. 9 the night previous, her cab having caught fire and been destroyed. The engine was on the way to the shops here for repairs, when, at the point named tbe colored woman, who bad been walking on tbe path along side the track, attempted to cross in front of tbe engine, she was knocked down and run over, being instantly killed. Tbe Coroner was notified Saturday even ing, but in consequence of the lateness of the hour decided to hold tbe inquest yes terday morning, when a verdict lu accord ance with the facts was rendered. A Quick Trip, The schooner M. B. Millen, Capt. Dyer, left New York with a cargo on Tuesday morning at nine o’clock, and arrived at Ty bee on Friday evening at 6ix o’clock, having made tbe voyage in eighty-one hours.

Favorable northeast and northwest winds prevailed during most of the voyage, aDd bad they continued, tbe schooner would have made tbe passage Iu a much shorter time. This schooner Is a Savannah vessel, and is owned by Capt. M. B. Millen, of this city.

Saturday night, about quarter past eleven o’clock, Policeman Defour encountered John Shellman, colored, who was acting In a very disorderly manner, and who was as saulting a colored brother named Isaac Mlllen. As such proceedings are not coun tenanced by law, tbe policeman arrested John and pranced him off to the bastile on South Broad street, where he was locked up In a room on the ground floor to cool off and repent of his sins.

Between two and three o’clock Saturday afternoon the neighborhood of Broughton and Habersham streets was the scene of a very disgraceful fight between two disrepu table colored females. They were consider ably under the influence of liquor, and meeting at the corner of the streets named, immediately commenced to exchange dis gusting, profane and abusive epithets. After considerable cursing the termagants resorted to brickbats, and missiles were slung pro miscuously. One of tbe females was struck on the side of the head, but was only slight ly injured, and determined to get revenge. They then clinched and tumbled over into the heavy sand of the street, where they rolled about, clawing, scratching and biting one another like animals, and altogether making a disgusting and disgraceful exhi bition of themselves. The racket continued about balf an hour, much to the annoyance of tbe respectable people iu the neighbor hood, when worn out with the struggle, they separated. Unfortunately, no policeman could be found in the vicinity during the entire fracas, and the females escaped. National Educational Association. We have received a notice from Hon. G. J.

Saturday afternoon the Coroner held an inquest on the body of a colored man named Mias Ford, who was drowned in the river about twelve miles above the city, on Wednesday night during the storm, under the following circumstances. Ford, iu company with Mr. D. M. Shephard, left the city in a row boat for Argyle Island, each handling an oar. After they had proceeded about eight miles up the river, Ford re quested Mr. Shephard to give him the other oar, stating that they could get along faster with one man rowing. Mr. Shephard gave him the oar, and took his seat at the stern. A few minutes afterwards he heard a splash in the water, and Ford cried out for an oar. Mr. Bhephard looked in the row locks, and discovered both oars gone. It was very dark and stormy, and he could see nothing of the unfortunate man or of the oars. The boat began to drift about, and the position became exceedingly unpleasant, as he was unable to manage the craft. Presently a vivid flash of lightning illuminated the scene, and he saw a stave floating by, which after some diffi culty be managed to secure, and with it paddled to a place called Beach Hill, where a watchman was found on duty. It is stated that he related the circumstances and requested aid, but the watchman re fused to render any assistance. The body of Ford was washed up the following day and was recovered. The Coroner’s jury re turned a verdict of death from accidental drowning. HARNETT HOUSE.

Alum Springs and the Late "Jordan Alum” NOW CONSOLIDATED IN ONE PROPERTY AND UNDER ONE MANAGEMENT. A JOINT stock company having bought these two contiguous properties, to be known under the old title of “ROCKBRIDGE ALUM SPRINGS,” will open it to the public on June lst,under the supervision of Mr. WM. FRAZIER, who was, before the war. and for four years after the war, in charge of the original Alum Springs. We think the public will find him the right man in the right place. J. FRED. EFFINGER, President Rockbridge Alum Springs Cos. After twelve years’ absence, I return to this post of duty. It is hardly necessary to dilate to the Southern public upon the virtues and value of this mineral water. It has in the last half century made a record of cures in chronic diseases which for variety and aggravation of the cases brought under its influence is unap proached by any known mineral water in this country. The professional testimony to this effect is distinguished and unimpeachable. But it is of the preparations now being made by the new proprietors for the proper enter tainment of the public I would tay a few words. A great work of expurgation and renovation is now going on at the old Alum Springs, in cluding a thorough system of drainage, anew and abundant water supply of pure freestone from the mountain, repainting and new roof ing, a very large introduction of new furniture, and in general a th Trough overhauling of the entire premises. The elegance of the new “Jordan Alum,” its spacious and commodious “Grand Hotel” and Cottages, and the beauty of its grounds, are widely known to the springs-going public. My aim and earnest effort shall be to keep this now combined establishment in a manner to give satisfaction to all reasonable guests. An excellent Livery i•• engaged, under a con tract imposing a reasonable tariff of charges. All the customary diversions are provided for. such as Band and Ball Room Music, Bowling and Billiards, aui all that, but I do not “bank” much on these things. Mv main efforts shall be directed, with the aid of an efficient staff,to make the patrons of the place comfortable and “At Home,” and regain, if possible, for this attractive summer resort its old popularity and prestige.

Who Ever Heard of Such a Thing A Mason k Hamlin Organ FOK ONLY $7 5). k OME one remarks, “That is the thing for ' ’ the man who lost his arm with a buzz saw and now turns a crank in a blue jacket as a disabled soldier.” You are mistaken. This is not a hand organ. Now it is a lady who re marks, “I do not wish my children to use per forated paper notes turned by a handle, for it will keep them back in true knowledge of music.” Beg pardon again—it is not an orgui nette. There is now a slight excitement, and the young daughter remarks, “My babv organ cost me $22, and what can be done for $7 50? Is it a mouth organ ?” Decidedly no. It Is a One and a Half Octave—Table Organ. Do you remember the old sewing machines in which you guided the work with one hand and turned the wheel with the other? This is a flat box, sitting on any table, portable, ele gant, and having a pretty handle on tbe top. You work this handle back and forward, which pumps air to the bellows, and with the free hand plav exactly as on the cabinet organ, only the range is limited by the space of the key board. Its Tones are of Excellent Quality. No specially perforated paper is needed for each tune, for you play ordinary sheet music, if you can play at all. IT IS NOT MACHINE PLAYING. Its educational use, so far as it goes, is as im portant as an SBO organ, and it is the Mason <t Hamlin Educator ror the large organ. Its compass is sufficient for the melodies of tunes, songs, and all music having only one or two parts. Either hand can be used, and thus double hand playing be prepared for. It is complete when it comes. No expense for anew tune. It is the best child's music toy ever made. Its expression delights grown peo ple. Come hear it.
