THE DEATH OF J. W. BROWNFIELD.-To re? cord the work of death in its ravages among our friends is thc mest painful duty of the journalist, sud the more especially is th is thc case whon. as in the present inst a i ce, tho blow has fallon upon one rich in all the uoblo qualities that give dignity to human character, and occupying an exalted place in tho estimation of his fo'low-men. John W. Brownfield, tho subject of this notice, was born in Sta'.oourg, Sumter District, in this bta'e, on tho 21th of i ccember, 1807. After sn academic conreo in seuih Carolina, he completed hi? educa" Hon in Waehmgton Colle^o in Connecticut. He pre? pared himself for tho bar, but soon ro'icquisliod that practice, and entered upon the more quiet ana congenial pursuit oi agriculture. In 1630 he was invited to Charleston and was called to an important omeo iu tho Bank of thi h tate, the duties of which ho continued to discbaVge until 1861, when ho was elected to tho highly responsible office of Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas and General Sessions for Charleston District. This po? sition he continued to hold until a few months since, when hs was superseded, amid the general toulcoenement resulting from tho war. It would be scarcely possible to sneak in exagger? ated terms of the manner in which Mr. Brownfield responded to the confidence reposed in him by the public. The very soul of honor, he could do no? thing that was contrary to lui d?ctales. Conscien? tious in the purest acceptation of the term, no allure? ments oonld charm him from the path which doty pointed out, and he left tho offioe .which he has so worthily filled with the deep regrets sf the entire community. AB in bis publio so in his private relations it may be said of bim that he was spotless and beyond all reproach. We forbear, however, to encroach upon the sacred precinct of hts home-a home, alas I ren? dered desolate and wasted-and will only venture to express the hope that the widow and the fatherless ai?y draw support and consolation, In this hour of their deep distress, from that Power which look? down with infinite pity on the bruised and stfferlng heart. Though born a Prote*t?nt, Mr. Brownfle'dbad at? tached himself to the CathoUo Church, of which he was a pious and devoted member. In his last ill? ness he was toothed by the minist eringa of that an? cient t ilth, and the application of Its consoling ordi? nances. 0 Mr. Brownfield finished his earthly career and peacefully breathed his last at half-past six on Wed' nnsday last, 20th in fant, at SummervUlo, near this city, having just completed hi? sixty-first year, remains will bc Interred in the family burial ground la bi? native district. THK THEATRE-FIBEMMS'O BENEFIT TO-MOK now NIGHT-M IBB DELAND.-Owing to tho other atractlons in the city laBt ovonmg, there was a very ?lim audience at the theatre to witness "The Tlcket of-Leave-Man," which waa rendered In the compa? ny's usual good manner, all acquitting themselves with credit. Tho farce created a continued roar of laughter, and wo doubt if tome oftho audience hare yet assumed their wonted gravity. To-night tho good old two act comedy, "All that ?Utters is not Gold," ?nd "Den Boll" will be presented. In an? other column will be found the notice concerning committco of urraDgcments for the firemen's testi? monial benefit to Mauager Gilbert on Saturday eveniug. Ibo gold medal to bo presented to the company disposing of the largest numbe r of tickets, equals in elegancoand beauty any that could bo manufactured in any city in the Union. Mr. Q'lbert han engaged tor next week Miss De? land, of whom tbe Rochester Chronicle says : "Mka Annie Deland, tko actress who commenced aa en? gagement at tho theatre last evening, appearing as Ruth Kirby in the new drama of the .lancashire Lass,' established herself as a favorite. She has a flexible voice, flue figure and good expression, with? out any of tho stago i ?Vetattona that aro being aban doned by the profession of tho new school The drama is one of the best of modern presentation, and we think it would draw crowded houses for a number of evening?."

AYER'S CHERRY PECTORAL, For Diseases of the Throat and Lungs, sack as Coughs, Colds, V* hooping Cough, Bronc nt tis, Asthma and Consumption. PROBABLY NEVER BEFORE IN THE WHOLE history of medicine has anything won BO widely and so deeply upon thc confidence of mankind as this excellent remedy for pulmomry complaints. Through a long series of years, and among most o? the races of men, it has rise n higher and hithor in their e.-?timatiou, as il has uce?me better known. Its uniform character and i owor lo euro the various af? fections of the lungs and throat, have made it kuown as a reliable protector ngainst them. While adap'ed to milder forms of diso IBO and to young child. eu, it is at the same time the most effectuai remedy that can bc given for incipient consumption, and tho dan? gerous affections of tho throat and lungs. As a pro? vision against sudden attacks of t roup, it should be kept on hand in every family, and indeed, as aliare sometimes subject to colds and coughs, all should beprovidod with this antidote for them. Although settlo i CONSUMPTION >s tbouaht incura? ble, Btill great numbers of cases where the disease seemed settled have been completely cured, and tho patient restored to sound health by the CHERRY PECTORAL. So completo ie its mastery over the dis? orders of the Lu nc H and Throat, that the most ob? stinate of them yield to it. Wbcn nothing else could reach them, under the CUKRRY PECTORAL they sub side and disappear. MNOF.ns AND PUBLIC SPEAKERS find great protec? tion from it. A STU M A is always relievod ar.d often wholly curod by it BRONCHITIS is generally cured by taking the CHER? RY PECTORAL in small and frequent doses. So generally aro its virtues known that we need not publish the certificates of them here, or do more than assure the public that its qualities aro fully maintained. Ayer's Cathartic Pills, FOR ALL THE PURPOSES OF A FAMILY PHYSIC, Are so composed that disease within the ranche of their action can rarely wlth?(and or evade them. Their penetrating properties search, and clo msc, and invigorate every portion of tho human organ ir tu, correcting its diseased action, and rwrtoslng its buenlthy YiU?j?e?. As ? conaonnr?y'iMDf these pro pe--ties, tho invalid \vh?71s bowed ao?j??Vwi?b pulu tn physical deiiuity is aaloi.ished to fira^Js health or energy restorVu hr . nraijSy at Once BO simple and lnviUig. f Not only.i?.o they euro the every-dtty complaint? .f everybody, but uh o many formidable and danger? ous diseases. The agent below nam-d is pleased to furnish gratis my Amer can A m mae, containing certificates of their cures and directions foi their uso in tho folio wir g complaints : Costiveness, Heartburn, Headache arising from disorder of Mom ach, N?usea. Indigestion, Pain in and Morbid Inaction of the Bowels, Flatulency, Loss of Appe? tite, Jaundice, and other kindred complaints, aris? ing from a low state of the body or obstruction of its functions. They are an excellent alterative tor the renovation of the blood and the restoration ot tone and strength to the system debilitated by dis- i ease. PREPARED BY Dr. J. C. AVER Ac CO., Lowell, Mass.
