gloriously displayed by the ' girls of thc period,''

to chi;rm the other senses with the best brands
of the weed in every shape and style.
THE SAVANNAH:AND CHARLESTON RAILROAD.
As a large number of persons are interested in
the progress of this road, we take pleasure in an?
nouncing that it Is completed and ready for the
cars, with the exception of about 6000 feet of tres?
tle work on the Georgia side of the Savannah
River, which it will be impossible to construct in
the present condition of the river; but the work
.will be. done In a few days after that stream shall
bave resumed its normal proportions. The Sa?
vannah Republican says, that the steamer Nick.
King a few days since towed a lighter, loaded
with timber, up te the Charleston and Sa?
vannah Railroad bridge. This structure is ra?
pidly approaching completion.

GEORGE D. PRENTICE.-The death is an- t
nouueed or George D. Prentice, ror many years |
the editor or the Louisville Journal, with which I
lils name is almost identified. Mr. Prentice was 1
.a native or Connecticut, and was born at Pres- 1
ton, in ism. He was a graduate of 1S23 at Brown :
University, and resided ror a time in Hartford, (
where lie was associated with Whittier in the i
conduct ol a literary weekly. In 1S31 lie removed (
to Louisville, where he has ever since resided. As <
a journalist he was brilliant, easy, rapid, but un?
sparing in controversy and reckless or the decen- <
cies or the pres?. Personally Intrepid, he passed J
through many or the hand-to-hand lights ? ltk c
pistol and kuRe that are or so frequent occurrence
in the West, without damage to his reputation
with his compeers. As a poet, he was distin- ?
gulshed by great sparkle ami tenderness, and i
some ol his verses have been embodied in the i
selections of the oest English poetry of the age. \
Of these, perhaps, "The Closing Year" is his best j
performance. With some weaknesses Mr. Pren- \
tice combined many excellencies of character. I
His railing health has long prepared the public <
mlud for the intelligence or his death, which will 1
be received everywhere with regret. i

DEATH OE JUDGE BOOZER.
The Honorable Lemuel Boozer, w??b died
at Camden on Sunday night last, was born in
Lexington, and sate in thc General Assembly for
many years as senator from that district. Al?
though not prominent in debate, he attended quiet?
ly to Hie discharge of Iiis duties and was regarded
as a tolerably sound Slates Rights man. After
the war he was again elected to the General As?
sembly, and voted against thc passage of the
Fourteenth Coustitutional Amendment. The pas?
sage of the Reconstruction acts caused Mr. Boozer,
then District Judge, to modify his already mod?
erate views, and being put ou the Radical ticket
he was elected a delegate to the famous Recon?
struction Convention which assembled iu Charles?
ton in June, 1S6S.
Mr. Boozer became something of a favorite with
the prominent Radicals, and with the idea of
strengthening their ticket, he was nominated
and elected Licutcnaut-Governor of the State.
Cpon the assembling of the Reconstruction Le?
gislature, the Lieutenant-Governor took his sein
as President of the Senate. He was subsequently
elected by thc General Assembly judge of tue
Fifth Circuit, qualifying as Judge on October 2,
136S. This position Judge Boozer held up to the
time of his death.
\\*e are not aware that Judge Boozer displayed
any singular ability or energy at any period of
Iiis career, lt seemed his inclination to float with
the tide, and it is to be regretted that a rain am?
bition led him to connect himself with the party
which has done Its best to ruin and destroy the
State. Both branches of thc General Assembly
adopted resolutions of respect on yesterday, and
we doubt not that they contaiii all that can be
said by Radical tongues or the llrst South Caro?
linian, of auy prominence, whom they persuaded
to join their party.
Judge Boozer, at the time of his death, was in
the slxty-third year or his age.
. FIRE ix CHESTER.-A destructif^ fire oc?
curred in Chester on Saturday night, it is sup?
posed rrom incendiarism, and before the fiery
element could be stayed a number or stores In the
business part or the town were consumed. Fre?d
berger, I. Hyman. J. J. McNinch, the Bee Store,
and the dwelling of Mrs. Campbell, were burut.
The Odd Fellows and Masonic Halls, and the of
flee or the Chester Reporter, were also destroyed.
But little was saved, though the citizens were
earnestly at work, and used every endeavor to
prevent the spread or the Ure. The confectionery
establishment of J. J. McNiuch, and the press
and type of the Reporter, were the only property
that was insured, all the rest being a total loss.
TUE RIGHTS OF BILL-POSTERS.-In" this ad?
vertising age, every available point that eau catch
the public eye is used ror posting purposes, and
glaring letters tell or the wonders to bc seen at
the different places of amusement. Thc boards
in front or the burnt buildings opposite thc
Charleston Hotel were erected Tor this purpose,
and the play bills ef the Academy of Music have
been posted on them. Manager Ford had leased
the boards from whom he deemed responsible
parties, but Mr. R. Arnold claimed a prior right
to them, and demanded ?SO per month for their
use. This was deemed exorbltaat, and the de?
mand was not acceded to. Mr. Arnold sued for
the amount, and thc case was heard yesterday
berore Magistrate Schroder. J. Barren Cohen,
Esq., appeared for Mr. Arnold, and Manager Ford
was represented by J. A. Moroso, Esq. Arter the
examination or witnesses, the case was put to

IND irs AUTHORSHIP.-Many persons who are not
n the habit of frequenting negro minstrel shows
lave expressed a desire to know what are the
?vordi of a song to which reference ls so often
made in thc newspapers, and the chorus of
ivhich salutes the ear In every public place, lt
is a nonsensical melody without rhyme or rea?
son, but ls a legitimate successor or such airs as
"Captain Jinks," and "Up in a Balloon," and is
therefore immensely popular with the masses.
When well sung, with the burlesque "Can-Cau'"
iccompaniment, it never fails to create eutliu

Strange as it may appear, says the Richmond
Dispatch, there is considerable discussion iu'the
papers as to its authorship. A claim for Peters?
burg was first put lu by the Norfolk Journal,
which stated that thc soug was originally com?
posed and sung by a crazy man named Baker
Crowder, but now we see that Lynchburg
claims it, and theu again the Wilmington Jour?

the blockade runners.
- GRAND MASQUERADE BALL.-Thc S?nger?
bund Teutonia Society will give a grand masque
ball on Wednesday, February 9tli, at the music
hall of the Academy of Music, that promises a
rich fund of amusement. The committee of ar?

PANORAMA OF NEW YORK.-Mr. 0. A. Dul?

of the streets and scenes of New York. Thc

JOAN OF ARC AT THE ACADEMY LAST NIGHT.
A full house greeted the reappearance of Bishop
and the Chapman Sisters on the boards of the
Academy or Music last evening. Both the pieces
annouueed on the bills were well presented, and
the performance augurs well for the success or
thc engagement. The opening extravaganza or
"Joan of Arc" is a brilliant and effective bur?
lesque, sparkling with odd and unexpected puns,
ami in some or the rhymes evincing considerable
cieverness. The fight between "Burgundy" and
"Talbot" was particularly runny; and the cos?
tumes and other paraphernalia or the piece were
gotten up in really superb style.
The comedy "Wanted, 1000 Milliners," kept the
audience in a continuous roar. Bishop's power
over the visible nerves of his hearers ls perfectly
irresistible, and his face ls itself a comic fortune.
Blanche and Ella Chapman were, as usual,
sprightly and rascinating, and the troupe, with
the special instance or Mr. Kennedy, gave them
an admirable support.
To-uight "Joan or Arc"' will be repeated, and
thc lovers or music, dancing and general run will
have another opportunity or passing a joyous eve?

It was reserved for a later age to unite the san?

roots, barks and plants, with an active stimulant,
and thus secure their rapid diffusion through the

triumph or this effective mode of concentrating
and applying thc virtues or medicinal vegetables
was achieved lu the production or HOSTETTER'S

the expressed juices or the finest specifics or the
vegetable kingdom. Never yet, though eighteen
years have elapsed since Its Introduction, has this
great restorative been equalled. It ls taken at all
