TO-NIOHT. -To-morrow will care for itself.
To-night, at the Academy o? Music, we have
"Paul Pry;" not Mother Hubbard, but Father
Bishop, who will astonish Charleston in a role
that the unctuous Liston, a quarter of a century
ago, made particularly his own. Added to Bishop,
will be the far-famed burlesqne "Kenilworth," in
which the Arcft-Bishops, Blanche and Ella Chap?
man, will again fascinate youth and unbend the
severities of age. A burooer ! ror this Saturday

"Gm ME SUM DAT PIE"-A DISGUSTING IN?
CIDENT.-The Columbia Guardian says : "Quite an
amusing scene, and one indicative of the dignity
of that august body, occurred in the House a day
or two since. DeLarge having procured some?
thing in the appearance of an apple pie, was
dividing it very generously among such of his
confreres as were seated next him, when Elliott,
who was seated some distance off, rushed up, and
In rather peremptory terms, demanded a slice.
As the pie, so DeLarge's liberality had diminished,
and there being but a single slice remaining, he
repUed to Elliott's demand by ramming that has?
tily m his own mouth. "Elliott was not to be so
easily robbed of his expected treat-like an eagle
he pounced upon de-large member from Charles?
ton, and grasping him by the throat, endeavored
to choke him Into a more generous state or mind.
Being the stouter, and having the advantage in
position, he standing and the other seated, Elliott
succeeded In jamming DeLarge's head down upon
bil chair, when the latter ended the encounter by
using his knife upon his antagonist's leg, sending
him scampering away to his seat, amid the
laughter or the House."
GOVERNMENT LANDS IN BEA^OMC-Our
Washington correspondent lnfonns us that a bill
bas beeu Introduced In the United States House
of Representatives and referred to the Committee
on Public Lands, authorizing the conveyance or
certain government property in the County of
Beaufort, S. C., to the State of South Carolina, for
-common Behool purposes. It is as follows:
Whereas, The United States Government owns
a large amount of taxable property of the County
?of Beaufort, South Carolina, for which no tax ts
paid either to the State of South Carolina or to
the County of Beaufort, thereby burdening the
people of said State and county much more heavi?
ly than would be the case if said property was
owned by the taxpayers of said county; and,
whereas, said property ls diminishing in value,
uncaredjor as it now is; therefore.
Be iPtnactea by the Senate and House of Repre?
sentatives of the United States or America In Con?
gress assembled. That all property owned by the
Government of the United States in the County of
Beaufort, South Carolina, which has come into
the possession of the United States under the
operation of the act or Congress approved June 7,
1802. and entitled "An act for the collection of
direct taxes in Insurrectionary districts within
the United States, and for other purposes," and
under the operation of any act amendatory there- :
to, except lands law fully set apart for military or
naval uses. Including the site designated for a
navy-yard on St. Helena Island, bc and ls hereby
turned over or conveyed to the State of South i
Carolina for educational purposes within said
State: and all sales of such property shall be set
apart bv the said State for couiniou schools, in
which ?ll the youth of the State, without regard
to race, color, or previous condition of servitude,
s?Mll enjoy equal rights and privileges: Provided,
Twit the State of South Carolina shall first, by
legislative cnaotment, accept these provisions.
A BOLD ROBBERY.-Thc IIMISC of the City
Sheriff has been robbed of bed-clothing and othe.
articles of valne. Several robberies have also
been reported In different parts of the city, and
the police authorities and detectives should be on
FOREIGN LAHOR.-We learn from the Cam?
den Journal that Colonel Shannon and Major Can?
ter have each received from thc ?*ew jerry Society
several German laborers, and that Dr. Barnet
and Mr. Cha rles J. Shannon, Jr., have both fami?
lies or the same descent on the way from New
York. The Journal says:
Thc immigrants who have been here now for
some weeks evince that Mr. Bruggeman, tlie
agent, has been very cartful in his selection; they
are a neat, tidy, courteous and well informal,
and exceedingly industrious people, from the
agricultural districts, and will, no doubt, prove a
valuable acquisition to our laboring class. F. W.
Bruggeman, Newberry, can supply, ir immediate?
ly ordered, twenty or thirty rannlies, and two or
three hundred single laborers in time Tor the cn

How GREAT IS SOUTH CAROLINA!-With ?
metropolis that was the hotbed ?r secession, the
llrst that caused the "old flag" tobe lowered,and
ene that sustained a siege unprecedented in his?
tory, the Palmetto State has noi yet had her full
meed of glory and renown. It is now asserted,
pO"i'.lvely, that South Carolina, thc birthplace of
Calhoun, and the honored mother or Rutledge,
Mc Duftle and Hayne, who are all known in the
past history or the State, has also thc- distin?
guished satisfaction ol claiming the authorship
or "Shoo, Fly." A number or theories have been
advanced as to the origin or this now popular
melody, but thc most plausible, and one that is
authenticated by numbers or gentlemen in this
city ls, that the tune and melody originated willi
thc negroes on thc plantations adjoining Black
Uiver. In 1S51, a number or gentlemen, includ?
ing several savants who were ou a geological sur?
vey, visited that section, and at a Christmas
dance heard not only thc music and words, but
thc chorus or "Shoo, Fly, Don't Bodder Me."
Without arrogating any musical supremacy, this
State^can fairly claim the authorship or thc song,
and wherever it is heard. Tew persons can trace
it further than a plantation melody, popular
among the South Carolina negroes before thc war,
and latterly introduced In this city.
CANDIDATES FOR GEORGIA SENATORS.-A spe?
cial to the Augusta Chronicle says: "The acknowl?
edged candidates for thc senatorship, to which
Hon. Joshua Hill and Dr. H. V. Miller were elect?
ed by the original Reconstruction Legislature,
and whose credentials are now on file with the
clerk of the Senate at Washington, are Foster
Blodgett; Parrott,Radclal Judge of Superior Court
and Speaker of the late Reconstruction Conven?
tion; Mott, late military Mayor of Colum?
bus, and Honorable Attorney-General for the
State or Georgia and public prosecutor before the
Military Eligibility Commission. All or these reach
aut expectantly, expecting to promote recon
itructlon in the Senate or the United States.
Blodgett, however, has proved sharper than all,
sven Farrow, who had Hie making or the Legisla?
ture, and evidently has the Inside track. It ls ru?
mored that John Underwood, ol Floyd, ls engaged
to take the seat or recalcetrant Chier Justice Jo- <
?eph E. Brown. Present ofllccrs or the State- s
louse are all to remain in office, except Treasurer .
Angler, who is exceedingly obnoxious to his pro- :
visional Excellency. The Bullockies are working
tard, leaving no stone unturned to have those
laving next highest votes to thc Ineligible scated (
jefore proceeding to perfect the organization (
)fthe House." '

TUE LEGITIMATE DRAMA.-WC are exceed- I
.ngly pleased to be able to state that, through thc
mterprlse of tr. Ford, we are to have next week, j
it the Academy of Music, a series or entertain- \
nents the bare announcement or which HU be (
mnlclent to AU the house "from turret to fouuda
lon stone." With a just appreciation ol the
iastes or the community, he has determined to
int upon the boards several or the best legitimate
;omedlesln the dramatic repertoire. Goldsmith's ?
'She Stoops to Conquer," Sheridan's "Rivals," .,
che "Heir-at-Law" and several other comedies ol ,
ihe same class ar d reputation, will be produced
with all the care and completeness which have
characterized the repn scntation or the legiti?
mate drama under Mr. Ford's auspices. The
present company will be retained for the ensuing 1
week,' and, with the addition or several other ?
sterling actors who have been specially sent for, I
will make up a very strong and effective cast. I
In roles like "Tony Lumpkin" and "Bob Acres,"
Bishop is saki to be unrivalled bv jiny comedian
now on the stage, and the lighter parts will be .
ibly sustained by the Chapmaus, Mr. Kennedy
and the new importations.
The comedies we have mentioned have not been '
produced lu Charleston for many years, and the
opportunity which ls now afforded us ol seeing
them under the most favorable auspices will, wc
ure sure, be eagerly embraced. ,
Charleston will certainly not be behindhand In
showing its appreciation of the plays which, for '
nearly a hundred years, have held triumphant ,
possession ol the British and American stage,
and have been acted to crowded and delighted
houses wherever the English language ls spoken.
THE PANORAMA OF NEW YORK CITY.-The
afternoon and evening exhibition or this pano- I
rama in the Hibernian Hall, yesterday, was a i
ileclded success, as on each occasion every scat
was filled, and numbers had to leave from want
ur room. Every preparation had been made to
accommodate the crowds that were expected to
ittend, but the hall was by far too small for thc
nany that thronged to the exhibition. A num?
ber of persons who were debarred the privilege of :
seats were compelled to leave.
The stage has been fitted up expressly for thc ?
panorama, and thc gorgeous display or thc
streets and scenes ol New York move before the
spectators with such a faithful representation
that thc dlO'crent localities are easily recognized
tty those persons familiar with Gotham. Broad- ,
way, with its elegant hotels, splendid stores and '
palatial residences, its sidewalks erowded with
ladles, gentlemen, and little folks; the street j
:hronged with carriages, drays, omnibuses, ex?
press wagons, rast horses and rast men; mill
;ary parades and processions; the beggar girls
:he street sweepers, newsboys, mcrchauts, mil.
lonalres, "gutter snipes," roughs, pickpockets
rreenles rrom the country, policemen, ?ud hun- '
Ireds or other characters-all make up a picture
:hat enhanee the Interest or every one, and '
iffords abundant pleasure. Mr. Nortou, the lee- '
;urer, who gives a running commentary ou the '
scenes or the panorama, understands his busl
less well, nud adds a great deal to the interest or 1
the exhibition. De kuows New York "like a 1
aoofc," and theamount or information his remarks
contain, and his entertaining description of life
In New York, its wealth and work, its generosity ?
iud its meanness, its thousands of objects of In- i
terest, is alone worth thc admission fee. 1
The pauorama will bc exhibited this afteruoou ?
and evening, and until Wednesday or next week.
JAMES CONNER'S SONS.-We publish to-day
thc advertisement of this well-known firm. Tire
NEWS, from the first day of its publication, has
been printed with type made at this foundry, and
is a pc rennial proof of their taste and skill. We
commend James Conner's Sons to thc printing
fraternity as sound, liberal, fair-dealing and ac
curate business men.
ACADEMY OF MUSIC-BENEFIT OF THE CHAP?
MANS.-Thc favorite comedy of "A Serious Fami?
ly" was produced last evening to the most in?
tensely appreciative audience that we have ever
seen. Bishop as Aminitlab Sleek provoked roars
of laughter with every intonation of his voice,
and almost with every expression of his wonder?
fully mobile face. Mr. Kennedy played the rol?
licking Irish Captain with his accustomed spirit,
and Mrs. Capman was very good as Lady Sowcrb;
In the burlesque of "Cinderella," which suc?
ceeded, the enjoyment of the audience was fully
sustained, and altogether the performance was
perhaps the most uniformly meritorious or the
season. In the closing chorus especially, the en?
cores were most enthusiastic, and Ella Chap?
man's clog dance was called for three times.
There will be a matinee this afternoon, with
"Joan or Arc" and "Shoo Fly" on the bills; and
at night thc capital comedy of "raul Pry" and
the burlesque or "Kenilworth," the latter the best
extravaganza at present on the boards.

^THE INFIRMITIES OF AGE.
Dccrepitude ls the natural accompaniment of old
agc, but lt may be ameliorated, and thc period of
entire helplessness long postponed by the judi?
cious usc of a healthful stimulant. Physicians,
fully aware of this Tact, usually recommend mod?
erate stimulation when thc strength and vigor o
maturity have been suspended by thc feebleness
and prostration which are thc inevitable results
or declining years. Port wine, gin, brandy and
other liquors are orten prescribed by medical men
Tor aged persons, but Hie Impulses which ferment
ed ami distilled liquors give to the circulation,
and the energy they seem to Impart, is transi?
tory, unless thc alcoholic principle is modified
ami quanted by the presence or medical tonics
and lnvlgorants. or all the combinations or dir
ruslvc stimuli with the juices of herbs, roots and
barks that have ever been administered to the
aged and'luflrm, with the view of sustaining their
waning strength, cheering their" drooping spirits
and relieving their aches and pains to which they
are subjected, none has been found so efficacious,
so agreeable and so permanent iu Its effects as
HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS. The differ?
ence between thc effect of the Bitters and that or
a mere excitant, however pure, is the same as be?
tween the effect or a sudden and momentary ap?
plication, or excessive rorce to a given purpose,
and the result or a steady, continuous applica?
tion of exactly the requiste amount of force to thc
same end. The mere spirit of physicist energy
produced by a dram (and which is always suc?
ceeded by corresponding depression) never yet
bcnefltted any man or woman suffering from
physical decay. A cordial like Hosteler's Bit?
ters, at once soothing and invigorating, is thc
remedial agent, required._Jan29 Qp&c
