made the first and best agricultural magazine in

THE BAZAAR at the Widows' Home grows moro
popular each evening. Last night the crowd was
larger, noisier, more liberal, and happior than ever.
The sales at the tables were brisk; tho chance
lists weie rapidly filled up, and thc volunteer
waitresses in tho supper room were kept constant?
ly busy. We are happy to say that the Bazaar
bids fair to realize a handsome sum in support of
THE CHEITMAS TERE FATE Tat Commins' Hall

The exhibition has been as successful as it bas
been brilhant, and, considering tLe tightness of
the money market, the ladies who have had con?
duct of it should feel much flattered at tho success
of their charitable enterprise. The Fair will con?
tinue for two nights longer, we behove.

"ARIEL" ai His OWN DEFENCE.-In the NEWS of
to-morrow will be published an original le' i .r
from "Ariel," in reply to some of the answers
which have beeu called forth by his well-known
pamphlet on the negro, and in vindication of bis
peculiar theories upon that subject.
As the question at issne between "Ariel" and his
opponents is one in which every person takes
great interest, an unusually large edition of the
NEWS, containing "Ariel's'* letter, will be issued;
but those who desire to secure extra copies will do
well to hand in their orders at our counting-room
SOUTH CABOLTNA CONFEBENCE.-In another col?
umn will be found the "appointments" of the
South Carolina Conference of the Methodist Epis?
copal Churoh, South. Our Charleston readers are
particularly interested in the following: Rev. F.
A. Mood, late presiding elder of Charleston Dis?
trict, is succeeded by Rev. A. M. Chreitzberg, and
Mr. Mood is appointed pastor of Trinity Church,
Dice Rev. E. J. Meynardie, who goes to Charlotte,
N. C. Rev. John T. Wightman remains at Bethel,
and Rev. H. BL Mood, of thia city, is appointed
pastor ol' the church in Summerville. Tho noxt
Conference ie to be hold at Abbeville Court House,

ST. MICHAEL'S CLOCK.-Tho dilapidated condi
tiuu of this old time keeper, and the independent
manner in which its hands move over the differ?
ent faces, has been a topic of general remark.
The City Council, at last convinced of the neces?
sity of controlling these erratic movements, have
advertised for estimates for the repairing and
cleaning that are requisite; also for estimates to
arrange the striking apparatus. These are to be
handed in before the 30th instaut, and the New
Year will scarcely have commenced beforo the
time of day will be announced as musically as in
days of yore. At present, tho hours pass silently
by, and the barefaced deceptions of the old clock
put many a faithful watch upon the wrong track.
-. ? .
THE JAPANESE.-A large number of the outside
barbarians wero present last night at the Hiber?
nian Hall, and witnessed the wonderful perform?
ances of the troupe. The boys, You Bot and All
Right, are most astonishingly supple, and bend
and twist their bodies in every conceivable man?
ner. The top spinning and other features of tho
performance are highly interest'.:?, a.id the exhil?
arating airs that aro produced by the Japanese
band sound like a mixture of all that is doleful. It
may suit the Tycoon and his representatives, but
is not up to the American iden of melody. The
explanations are all delivered in the most classic
Japanese, and are, of coarse, very intelligible, but
this does not in the least detract from the merit
of the entertainment, and tho interest is kept up
REV. E. J. ME?NARDIE.-The Cnarlotto Demo?
crat, of Wednesday, speaking of the appointment
of thia geutleman to the pastorate of the Metho?
dist Church in that place, says : "Wo feel rare
that no more worthy and acceptable person
could hav been assigned to this charge, and pre?
sume tho announcement will be received with gen?
eral satisfaction." Mr. M. has been in Charleston
for several consecutive years, and served the sev?
eral churches under his charge with groat accep?
tability. The congregation of Trinity Church will
lament the peculiar feature in Methodist econ?
omy-the itinerancy-which makes those partings
necessarv. The many friends of Mr. M. in this
city, outside of the church, aa well as the members
of Trinity, wUl ever remember him with affection,
und will be always glad to hour of bis welfare and
MILITARY IMPROVEMENTS. Since thc United
States authorities havu taketi possession of the
Citadel, they have thoroughly repaired and r:fitted
it in every particular, and its present appearance
testifies to tho completeness of the reconstruction.
Their efforts have not been confined, however, to
the Citadel building, but the Picket Guardhouse,
the Barrett and the Boyleston houses have been
treated in a similar manner. The workmen are
at present engaged on the latter, and have already
effected some improvements by opening windows
and arranging the building for thc use of thc- laun?
dresses and soldier's wives iu the garrison. The
colored congregation which formerly worshipped
in the upper part were notified to leave, and the
whole building is being placed in thorough repair,
and, when ?nishad, will compare favorably with
the general appearance o? the Citadel and grounds.
A sutler's store will be opened :n the lower story,
the distributing officer of the bureau beLng re
removed to Mr. Oppenheim'a house in King-street
THE HALCYON DATB.-To-morrow, the 21st, is
tho Winter solstice, the shortest day in tho year,
-.? thc seven days preceding and thc seven fol?
lowing this day were called by the ancients the
Halcyon Days. This phrase, so familiar as ex?
pressive of a period of tranquility und happiness,
is derived ; om ii fable that during this period,
while tho Halcyon bird or King Fisher was brood?
ing, tho sea was always calm, and might be trav?
elled with perfect security by tho mariner. Tho
name halcyon is derived from the Greek, and, ac?
cording to the poetic fiction, common among that
people, t tic bird was teprcsouted as hatching her
eggs in i floating ne.it iu tho midst of thc waters.
Aside from these fables, the halcyon days aro ap?
propriately named on account of their proximity
t ? Christmas, which is kept as a religious and
.-. .ular holiday throughout tho world: nnd the
fourteen days embraced in this period are gener?
ally devoted to peacetul enjoyment, all business
cares being forgotten aud the mind completely re?
BALTIMORE AND PrflLADELPHIA FREIGHTS.-The
latest reports of tho weather points to an early
closing of navigation in the Delaware and Chesa?
peake Bay. Ample provision has been made at
Baltimore, however, to keep open communications,
md no delays are anticipated there.
During tho -mt season thc steamships Falcon
and Sea Gull, of the Baltimore and Charleston
Line, were found to bo equal to the task of "going
through,' ice or no icc; and this year tboy will be
aided ly the now icc boat. To accommodate their
largo Philadelphia business, the Baltimore and
Charleston Steamship Company havo made ar?
rangements for their freights to go forward by
railroad from Baltimore, so that dispatch is cer?
tain, and a saving also of one-quarter per cent, in
insurance over the usual ink nd water route between
Baltimore and Philadelphia, now closed with i:o.
Shippers and consignees to and from Philadelphia
will note these advantages and order their goods
KING-STREET. -The Broadway of Charleston has
now put on its Christmas dress, and the windows
of the different stores along the most fashionable
portion of the street are filled with attractive in?
ducements f.-.r the numerous passers by to stop
aud exchange their greenbacks for moro enduring
articles. To enumerate the wonders that are dis?
played is impossible, but it is sufficient to know
that they arc appreciated by the crowds that
throng this thoroughfare. Every train hos
brought additions to the number of strangers,
while tho jcau coats and lindsey dresses seen show
that the wagon-yards have supplied their quota of
country visitors, whose plethoric pocket-books will
be somew hal depleted before their Christmas pur?
chases are comploted. Tho strangers and the
tort-1 are, however, the least attractive features of |
the sireet, and fall iuto utter insignificance when
compared with the fair promenaders, who distract
the lords of creation and cause mauy heart-burn
ii'gs among tho less favored of their own sex.
Charleston has loug been celebrated for the beauty
and grace of her daughters, and those who visit
King-street during the fashionable hours or drop
into thc Christmas 1 ree Fair, thc Bazaar or the
Japs, during the evening, will be convinced that
there are few cities that can boast a brighter array
of lovely faces. King-street is daily thronged with
tho fairest of the fair, aud all who desire to see the
half-burnt city in its holiday attire should not fail
io form one of tho gay promenaders ; the price of
cotton will then be forgotten, the blues will Le dis
tipated, and the belles alono will occupy the atten?

The t harlcxton Daily ?Vows for 1868-Iiu
Encouraged by Ibo recent large increase in
he circulation of THE CHARLESTON DAILY
NEWS, the proprietors are happy to announce
that, with the opening of the new year, the
price of subscription will be reduced to a figure
which will at once place thc paper within
the reach of every family in thc city and
throughout the State. On aud after the first
of .January, 1 sob. THE DAILY NEWS will be pub?
lished at Six DOLLARS A VEAU, payable, in all
cases, in advauce. It will then be, without
exception, the cheapest first-class journal in
thc Southern States. There is no good reason
why our community should not be furnished
with a live daily newspaper at a rate approxi?
mating that of the sprightly penny press of the
Northern cities ; and the very generous support
which has been accorded to us on all sides has
hastened a step, long contemplated on our part,
towards meeting the popular want. It is hard?
ly necessary to say that there will bc no dimi?
nution in thc amount or interest of the reading
matter in any department of thc paper; on the |
contrary, it will be our constant effort and our |
pride to make it, day by day, more full, reliable
and entertaining-the spiritod cornpend of the
world's news, the mirror of local life, and the
mouthpiece of ai enlightened and liberal pub?
At the solicitation of many of our friends in the
country, we shall also, during the first week in
January, commence the issue of THE CHARLES?
TON TRI-WEEKLY NEWS. The subscription
price will be THREE DOLLARS A YEAR, or Two
DOLLARS FOR SIX MONTHS, payable always in
This reduction ?ii our rates will, we know,
be all the more welcome to thc public, inas?
much as it comes at a time of unprecedented
financial distress, when there are few, indeed,
among our people who do not. sorely need every
dollar that can be saved. We do not permit
ourselves to doubt that our enterprise will be
rewarded with a steady increase of that popu?
lar appreciation and support of which we have
hitherto received so liberal a share. THE
DAILY NEWS already enjoys a circulation
largely exceeding that of any other journal
now published in this or the adjoining States ;
and its readers may rest assured that, in thc
future, no effort will be spared to increase the
attractiveness of ils columns, and to extend
still further the field of its influence and use?
CHRISTMAS DLNNER.-Few persons allow tho
Christmaa 6cason to pass without celebrating tho
occasion by an extra dinner, one of the concomi?
tants being the time-bonorod plum pudding. For
the benefit of thc few benighted housekeepers who
do not understand the art of preparing this deli?
cacy, wo furnish tho following invaluable recipe,
which was obtain ed from tho Queen's Yeoman ol
the Mouth, or, in j lain English, her head cook:
Old English Plum Pudding.-To make what id
termed a pound pudding, take of raisins well
stoned, currants thoroughly washed, one pound
each; chop a pound of suet very linc and mix with
them; add a quarter of a pound of flour or broad
finely crumbled, threo ounces of sugar, one ounce
and a half of grated lomon peels, a blade of mace,
haifa dozen egg8 well beaten ; work it well to?
gether, put it into a cloth, tie it firmly-allowing
room to swell-and boil not lesa than five hours.
It should not bc buffered to stop boiling.
GENERAL R. K. SCOTT.-Some time ngo it was
stated that General Scott had been mustered out
of service, the severance of his connection with
thc army to take effect on the 1st of January, 18C8.
A dispatch was,-hov ever, received yesterday, wo
understand, directing him to continue in his pres?
ent position till hu'ther orders ; which, we pre?
sume, means as long aa thc Freedmen's Bureau is
continued aa au institution of tho land. Wo do
not like tho bureau, and hope it will soon go into
liquidation. Until then, we have no objection to
thc present Assistant Commissioner, and although
he has not given satisfaction to all-in the nature
of the case this was impossible-we think it much
bettor to endure the ills wo have rather than fly
to others we know not of. General S., we have
every reason to believe, is an honest, well-mean?
ing man, desirous ol' doing his duty. He has
studiously eschewed politics, aud even incurred
the dislike of some of bia Radical brethren in con?
In this connection we may also say that we did
not learn whether or not Mr. Pillsbury, who has
been recently relieved of his post in tho bureau,
has likewise been asked to rc6umo bis office. His
recont interview with Mr. Thaddeus Stcvous miy
have borne somo such Iruit.
