L. Norton, consigned to Messrs. John <? Theo. Getty. The Ashland made an admirable trip, having left New York early on Saturday, and arrived off the port yesterday, and reached the city during tho afternoon, having made the passage in about fifty-two hours running time. Captain Nerton may be highly gratified with his exceller.; vessel on her firBt trip to this port. The Messrs. Getty will immediately place her on the berth for New York. The steamer Gull City also reached her berth from Kew York, consigned to Messrs. Courtenay A Trenholm, who have a freight in waiting for her._ ANNIVERSARY.-The hall of the Washington Artillery Friendly Society, corner of King and Liberty streets, was last evening the scene of j one of those social gatherings which are like milc-stoncs in the march of life. Old friends and comrades met to celebrate au honored an? niversary. Old reminiscences were recalled, and old memories invoked. A handsome colla? tion, graced by spoech and song and merri? ment, was tho admiration point of the year's paragraph. And what was said and done will bo happily remembered by all present. The officers elected for the ensuing year aro as fol? lows: S. G. HORSEY, President. W. G. WRILDEN, Senior Warden. JAMES SALVO, Junior Warden. E. AI. HACKER, (secretary. P. FALLOW, Treasurer. W. KNOX, I 6teward. P. A. CHASE, J ?tewaMS It is needless to say that the occasion was one of those delightful reunions whioh vividly recall old times with all their freo hospitality, generous speech, and fraternal kindness; and wc can only add "many happy re tunis." How HE LIFTED Hni-Many of our i caders know Thomas S. Nickerson, the popular hotol keeper, and bavo doubtless enjoyed listening to bis inimitable stories, for ho not only "knows how to keep a'hotel," but also how to entertain his guests in an acceptante manner. Thc Au? gusta Constitutionalist thus reports bis last yarn, spun from Alabama material: An old negro was met on the road in cue of the rural districts of that important third part of Meade's third military domain by an enter? prising white man, who engaged the aged col? ored man and brother in a highly edifying con? versation upon tho state of thc country and kindred topics. Uncle Sambo, in answer to the question, ' Did you vote?" replied in the affir? mative; whereupon the white traveller-lroni tho East-informed him that it was his mis? sion to seek such loyal citizens of Afri.-an descent as had thus manifested their dovotion to thc country, and place in the possession of each four stakes, with the letters "U. S." painted in red on the wido end of each. With these stakes each colored voter was to "stake out" forty acres of laud anywhere he might se? lect, and it should ever after be his. The "loo" for the stakes was only ten dollars. Sambo had only four dollars and sev? enty-five cents. The man of stakes consented to let Sambo in for that amount; he gave him four of tho painted boards and a receipt. Sambo, greatly elated with bis good fortune, proceeded to his old home, iniormed his former master of his luck, and very magnanimously told him that he would not take any of "old massa's land, but would pick out forty acres jinein." "'Old massa" asked Sambo what show? ing he had besides the stakes. Sambo trium phantlv drew his 'ceipt, as he called it. which read: "'And there were three giants in those dav?; and as Moses lifted up the serpent, so have I lifted this old fool nigger out of four dollars and seventy-five cental" Ethiopia on a Strike. OBJOD. AND RESULTS OP THE MOVEMENT-PB< AND JUDICIOUS A.7TION OF THE NEW MA GENERAL BUBNS-A BIT OF ADVICE TO 6TBIEEBS. If any of our readers were in tho vicinil the old postoffice yesterday morning, t nine o'clock, they may have noticed a mc crowd of neg. oes, some two or three hum in number, aligned against the sides of houses, hands in pockets, idle, belligerent mad. They may likewise have heard thr of "vengeance dire," curses loud and d< and seen something of freedman life in on its new, suggestive and interesting pha Policemen were there in all tie glory of ba aud brass; the Mayor vibrated industrio! among thc malcontents, and spectators loo on in wonder. The cause is briefly stated-a stn "Higher wages" is one of those popular CJ which months ago swept through the Not stifling enterprise, breaking heads, and fill guardhouses; but thus far, in the South, have felt only the ripple of thc wave. ( mechanics, artisans and working men gen ally, recognizing the misfortunes of the coi try, have been content to participate in i general struggle for subsistence, without sisting on imaginary rights; and in sympai with the effort that has been so energ?tica made to replace the old State upon her auric commercial footing, have lent soul and body the development of her almost boundless : sources, without demanding the last cent frc the few who have tho means to pay for labi There is another class, however, who ha mado trouble on two former occasions and n< once more obtrude themselves upon the pub and the police as disturbers of the peace-' refer to the freedmen employed oo the wharv by the stevedores. White men in such times as these would 1 content with one dollar and a half a day f the ton hours' labor performed in loading ai unloading the vessels in our port. Not so wi negroes. Tho eleven dollars a day paid tb -ir brethren in the convention appears have demoralized the whole race, and colon muscle now competes with colored brain 1 Tho difficulty yesterday was evidently i sudden thing. The combination was periec At a given hour tho hands on all the wharvt ceased work, demanded increased pay, am because it could not bo had, incontinently lef A largo number of vessels are loading wit cotton for Liverpool and coastwise ports, an the cargo is on the wharves ready for shij meut, yet not a laborer dared to raise his hanc Owners and consignees made efforts to carr forward their business by hiring others, bt three or four knock-downs, and any quantity < boisterous threats from the strikers, quick] deterred freedmen from accepting the proffe of reasonable wages, and the day passed &wa in idleness to tho employers and employees. Two arrests of the ringleaders were mad? and the prompt action of the authorities n doubt prevented moro serious demonstrations General Burns repaired to the spot at an ear ly hour iu the day, and, seeing the condition o affairs, ordered a file of soldiers and a eommis stoned officer to report to Captain Sigwald Chief of Police, for the purpose of quelling an: disturbance that might arise. This appoarcc t.. satisfy the negroes that they had to dea with a man who behoved in bullets and bayo nets more than in soft words. They according ly behaved themselves. lu making one of the arrests above refcrret to, the police were threatened with demolitioi by twenty or thirty obstreperous fellows, whc made a ru.- h us if for a rescue. General Burne happened to bo standing by, and, edging his ivay into the crowd, quietly reminded thc freedmen that he was the new Mayor, and that thoy would find it to their interest to keep the poace, go to work, aud if they could get even one dollar a day to get it and bo satisfied. The half dozen pyrotechnic sentences uttered by the General answered overy put poso, and tho negroes dispersed, feeling peifoctly assured that it would not be safe to trifle with that par? ticular man at any rate. The crowd continued its grumbling all day, and loafed lazily in tho sunshine. The result bv night fall waa that a goodly number of dis? gusted negroes might have been seen wending their way homeward and to bed, supporless and unhappy. There is no doubt tbat the whole trouble is tho work of designing men, who have in view sinister ends. The hands were paid on Satur? day as usual, and not a word of complaint uttered; and probably they would have con? tinued their labors as heretofore, but from tho in pression derived from the Union League and elsewhere, that they were entitled to two or three dollars per day and should deni .end it. Indeed, one of the negroes declared that it was the recoa inondation of the League; and they were determined to have their right or no work should te done. It may not oe wiso tor the freedmen to press this matter. Young white men, natives of Charleston, would be but too glad to toko their places. They can be found to-day laboring on our railroads, wharves' and in machine-shops aud foundries for $1, $1.25 and $1.50 per day, and thankful for their daily bread. Nsyro labor, howevor, has always been given the preierenco in the loading of ships, and this ante bellum custom prevails now-perhaps for the reason that, as a class, the negroes of Charleston have conductod themselves with groat propriety during thc past three years. On this account, their old privilege has been roadily accorded them; but a frequent repeti? tion of yesterday's doings may chango the situation. That there ie a largo white popula? tion in Charleston, ready to work and waiting for opportunity, there can be no doubt. If it were not so, the fifty thousand unemployed mon of New York city alone can be drawn on at three days' sight. HOTEL ABBTVALS.-Charleston Hotel.-Capt. Frisbie, brig Cyclone; H.

Sam Simons (colored), who essayed to be? come a nautical man and stole a row-boat from Mount Pleasant, .vas also fined $10, though no prosecutor appeared. Quash Happy and James Grant (colored), in iulged in a small mill on East Bay, but, on proving that they were only in sport, they were iischarged.

A fine of $5 each ivas imposed, and they wero informed that tbo ;ame had better not be repeated. A disciple of Bacchus was brought up for 3cc upying more of the sidewalk than ho was mtitled to. He plead liquor on tho brain, but ?vas forced to submit to tho usual remedy, a greenback pill that cost $5. A descendant of Jehu of old, who also drove luriously, ran into another man's cart, but was Drought up all standing, when charged $5 for ;he exercise. A colored youth of about fifteen summers, <vbo had a fondness for greens, stole a bag of ;abbages from Mr. Jones' farm and endeavored :o sell them at 5 cents a piece.

Upon hearing the evidence in this case, it was 3:-dered that the defendants pay to the plain? tiffs $941.35, with costs. A FAST AGE.-Steam and magnetism aro two igonts that are acting on modern society with jiarvollous power. The rapidity with winch information is conveyed and height transport ;d now-a-days is scarcely realized by most peo? ple. THE DAILY NEWS each morning contains intelligence from tho most important points ol' the civilized g'obo of tho day previous. Tho improvements in the usc of steam continue to progress, and thc passage of tho Atlantic, ivhich formerly occupied about two weeks, is uow effected by tho French line, one of tho best on the ocean, with considerable regulari? ty, in ton days, and oltou less. When tho steamship Southerner commenced her trips to New York, about sixty hours was a good pas? sage; but when the Columbia aud Nashville were built, they frequently made tho run in forty-eight hours. Since thc war thc expense of building new vessels has been so great, and trade so much doprosscd, that there has boen but little opportunity for thc best efforts. But the time is not distant when tho governments of the South having become settled, and indus? try and prosperity ro-establishod, competition will compel all partie-1 to exert thomsclvos to the utmost to maintain their place in the great lines of traffic. These remarks have boen suggested by a notico in tho papers, stating that the new United Statos steamship Wumpa uoag lately made tho run from Sandy Hook to i point off Charleston in thirty-three hours. This is rather less than a day and a half, and bush speed would place a passenger leaving New York early Monday on tho wharves of Charleston before tho sun sets ou Tuesday. This time would far surpass thc prescut rail? road schedule; passengers would not have to change their batrgage, and, with first-class ships, it would undoubtedly restore to tho sea route tho travel which now goes almost entirely by land. Charleston, with such a linc, would have great advantages; she is thc firs; point south of Hatteras possessing a tolorable bar and superior harbor; Beaufort. N. C., is tho only point north with good water, and its drawbacks are so many that it may be ruled out; while Savannah is so much moro distant that a largo pan of the following night would be consumed in reaching there-so that it is not unreasonable to suppose that with proper facilities, a good assurance mieht botntertai.i ed of a large portion of the travel of the South and Southwest taking this route. With tho travel would come the light and valuable freight, and our city and its railroads would receive a powerful impulse. ABBEST.-Ben. Prioleau, a colored man, waa arrested yesterday for stealing cotton from Willis & Chisolin's warehouse, and will be heard this morning before the Mayor. A DUEL NIPPED IN THE BUD.-Our commu? nity hos been so long free from rumors of "bat? tle, murder and sudden death" that the report of a duel on the tapis yesterday created au excitement which was only seconded by the expectation that the colored stevedores would break out in a row on the Bay. The details are too long and too personal to make them proper for recitation, and we, there? fore, simply mention the facts. 1. That two gentlemen disagreed with refer? ence to a lady. That one of them demanded i formal retraction, which was not giren. 2. Thereupon No. 1 threatened to post the offending party. The latter replied he would shoot bim if he did so, and for that imprudent remark was arrested and put under five thou? sand dollar bonds to keep the peace. 3. Twelve o'clock arrived-the hour for the posting to take place-and No. 1 proceeded to fulfil hi? threat. While in the act a brother of | No. 2 rushed up as if to make a hostile demon? stration, and laid his hand on the shoulder of No. 1. Whereupon a detective, who had been watching the proceedings, stepped from his covert, arrested No. 1, and caused him also to be put under bonds to keep the peace. Here endeth the chapter. A WABNINO TO Cow HEEDS.-Mayor Burus has revived an old ordinance, or rather he is determined to enforce one already existing Since the war it has beeu the practice for cattle to roam almost unmolested through the streets, and thc burnt district proved an invit ing pasture for lean kine. Unfortunately the kine were nomadic, arid too often transgressed tho rules of propriety by occupying the side walks. This proceeding was not acoording to tho city ordinances in such case made and pro vided, and tho gentle bovines were frequently fined for their transgressions; hut Mayor Gaillard, remembering the poverty of tho peoplo, and considering the tempt ing condition of the burnt district reduced the fine to the minimum allowed by the ordinance, and the cattle owners only pai $1 for the erratic babita of their beasts. A caso was brought before Mayor Burns yea tcrday morning, and he decided that hereafter the full extent of the fine, $5, should be cn forced. Ho thought that tho city wanted money, and if people allowed their property to transgress the, laws, they Bhould pay for the privilege. Hereafter the fine will be $5 for oach transgression, and tho owners of cattle would do well to keep a watchful eye on their cowB, or they may find their greenbacks drift ing into tho city treasury. PETITIONB IN BANKUPTO?.-Tho following petitions in Bankruptcy have been filed in the Quited States District Court, Judge Bryan pro aiding, and referred to R. B. Carpenter, Esq., Registrar.
