CUAMB^R OF COMMERCE.-The Chamber of 1
Commerce met yesterday at their new hali, '
corner of East Bay and Broad streets. Vice- '
President S. Y. Tupper in the chair. (
On taking the chair, Mr. Tupper, in a fev '
elegant and exceedingly appropriate remarks, 1
-congratulated the Chamber upon the occupa- '
tion of their new hall, and expressed the hope (
that a continued prosperity would soon again
place our merchants upon the high footing '
they formerly; held in the commercial world.
Mr. Tupper addressed the Chamber as fol?
Gentlemsn - For more than eighty years the
Chamber of Commerce may be said to have
been without a local habitation or a home. It
has drifted about from hotels to taverns, and
.from marble halls to the dingy corners of some
public office-wherever our friends would take
us in, or money aftbrd us a temporary resting
We have now, I trust, a permanent home,

I congratulate you, therefore, gentlemen,
?upon taking possession of your new hall, and I
trust by frequent intercourse here that a
stronger bond of union will be formed among
us; that the high integrity which has ever
characterized this body will be steadfastly
cherished, and the Influences of this ancient
Chamber continue to go forth, as in former
days, to the encouragement of industry, hon?
esty and enierprlse, and. above all, to the res?
toration ot that golden age when the mention

Recurring to the subject of these rooms,
your committee, charged with the duty of pre?
paring them for y our accommodation, will have
the satisfaction of reporting that the workmen
have completed their labors, the owner has
surrendered the keys, and the apartments are
aow in your possession.
In addition to the suit of rooms before you,
it was deemed advisable, as promoting the
convenience and comfort of the Chamber, to
secure a portioa of the third story of the
building, for the purposes of a club or com?
mittee room, and this they were able to effect
at an additional but inconsiderable sum per
The committee have now proceeded in this
matter us far as they felt authorized, under
.the report and resolutions adopted by the
Chamber. All that remains for them to ask 13,
that a suitable appropriation should be made
for the furnishing ol the rooms in a manner
consistent with the dignity ot" this body. And
for this special purpose I have invited your at?
tendance here to-day.
Major J. T. Welsman, fron the committee
on the hall, made a report, recommending
-certain purchases essential to the complete
furnishing of the hall, and the comfort of the
members and visitors to the Chamber. The
report was unanimously adopted, and the
.chair was authorized to appoint a committee
.of five to carry out its suggestions, as follows :
Messrs. John H-inekei, Cowlam Graveley, W. J.
Middleton, William Aiken Kelly and Stephen

partook of a collation.
Since our late sketch of the building the
main hall of the Chamber has received the fin?
ishing touches, and the adjoining reading
room has been supplied with ample and sub
sttatia! newspaper files. The hall may be now
considered complete, with tue exception of
chairs and tables, which will be soon added.

THE HEALTH or CHARLESTON AN? TUE FALL
TRADE.-It ls a matter of congratulation among
our citizens that, notwithstanding the exces?
sive heat of the summer, now near its close,
the health of our city has been and is so ex?
celled. The -'early birds" among our country
friends a;:d customers are beginning to make
their af,^carance. and declare that they have
never known the stocks o? our merchants and
I jobbers to be so full and attractive. In fact,
I Charleston ls prepared to do a big business
this coming fall and winter, and, unless all the
signs ia;!, she will have it to do.
REFORM WARD Mi ETING.-A large and en?
thusiastic meeting cf the voters of Ward No. S
was held in their hail, corner of King and Line
streets, last night, Mr. Sigwald in the chair.
Eloquent and stirring addresses were deliver?
ed by Colonel Seymour, Mr. Black, Rev. Jonas
Byrd and others. The lateness of the hour
forbids us from saying more of the addresses
than that they were earnest and true, and
were listened to with deep attention.
INLAND NAVIGATION-THE STEAMER ELIZA
HANCOX.-The Savannah papers state that the
fine steamer Eliza Hancox ls now en route for
that port from Norfolk, aud will be placed on
the Charleston route, stopping at Beaufort and
all intermediate landings. She will also run
to the Satilla River, Darien, Brunswick and
way points, making weekly trips. The Eliza
Hancox is a first-class steamer, of beautiiul
build and commodious in ull her arrangements.
She is also noted for her swift sailing and sea?
going qualities. She will be commanded by
Captain S. W. Burns.
UNION REFORM CLOU. WARD No. 3.-The reg?
ular weekly meeting of this club was convened ,
on Tuesday evening, the president, John F.
Britton, in the chair. There were present over
two hundred persons, and the meeting was
The various committees appolnted;presented
reports, and, after the transaction of the usual
business, trie meeting was addressed by Mr. N.
C. McIntyre, who, while not being accustomed
to engage in political speaking, felt compelled
to aid by his voice the Reform movement. He
acknowledged himself a Northern man and a
Republican, but he thanked God that neewaa
not a Radical He paid particular attention
to the many adventurers with which the South
is at present afflicted.. He addressed himself ]
to his colored hearers, and pointed out the
means which had been used to defraud them of
their highest prerogative. He told them that
their Interests were with the natives of South
Carolina to aid ia reforming the government
under which they live. He would ask the col?
ored people to remember the great men who
heretofore controlled the State of South Caro
lina. and presented a striding comparison be?
tween South Carolina's past greatness and the
horde of adventurers who now held the gov?
ernment in hand. Mr. Mclutyre closed his re?
marks amid loud cheering.
Mr. Mackey being called out. spoke with
much effect. He felt proud in saying that In
his dealings with the people of South Carolina
ae had nothing to complain of; every act had
jeen in keeping with their assertions. His
iesire was that the Reform movement should
>e carried on vigorously, and that success
ivould crown the effort. He dwelt at".great
ength upon the mismanagement of our State
[Jovernment, showing by argument that the
Reform party possessed the means of making
the campaign a successful one. Mr.] Mackey
was listened to with marked attention, and
his remarks cannot but result In much good.
He closed amid prolonged applause. Mr.
Harper followed next, and the only regret we
feel is that we are unable to glv; his remarks
in full. His happy hits fell with idling effect.
Mr. T. B. King being Introduced to the meet?
ing, spoke with his usual force. Time and
space prevents further notice of Slr. King's re?
marks, but the attention rainltested by the
audience, gave proof o: the convincing truths
uttered by the speaker. The meeting at a late
hour then adjourned.

FASHIONS FOR SEPTEMBER.
Suit- and Costumes-The New Autumn
NEW YORK. August J".
There ls one great advantage in the present
style, and that is that all the old dresses that
have lain in the bottom ot* trunks for a hun?
dred years can be utilized. Long, short, nar?
row, straight, makes no difference, all can be
turned to account and arranged to complete
the prettiest toilettes that milliners ever in?
vented. The most costly dresses ever worn
were the plain waists and long, full, single
skirts, which preceded the present fashion of
walking dresses. Every seam and rent and
bare spot showed to such conspicuous advan- '
tage, that only while a dress W3s quite new
could one be perfectly sure that it was comme
? faut. Let it once show signs of wear upon
the edces or acquire the dreadfully dragged
and mired appearance which a few ef?
forts at pedestrianism gave it, and, alas !
poor Yorick, it was ali over- the evidence of
accidents or wear could neither be cut off not
covered up. Costumes of course are not eco?
nomical to those who patronize high-priced
dress-makers, and use always new materials
and new trimmings, and there are those who
think lt so very Wow" to do otherwise that
one lases caste In their eyes by speaking of the
possibility. Nevertheless one must lake the
risk, for the sake ot those who like pretty
things, just as well as Miss Jap?nica, but have
not Miss Jap?nica'? sublime trust in "Papa"
and a rich husband to draw upon. A lady re?
marked the other day that she had fitted out
her daughter for boarding-school, and two
others for summer trips and visits
among friends, by using up old things
that she had in the house for years. Now,
there may be a doubt about the wisdom that
permits women lp buy so much more than they
can wear out, while ic is fashionably worn, but
still they do it, and unused garments will ac?
cumulate so until women have more sense and
can better employ their time. It ls just as well
to furnish them fresh ideas by which they can
utilize the old clothes. This blt of practicability
may be th 3 reason why costumes have to a
certain extent superseded suits, and why the
suit complete-hat, gloves and other accesso?
ries unllorra with the dress-is now the high?
est form of elegance. For the latter every?
thing must be perfect, and belong to itself. It
cannot be made out of '-pieces. ' It must be
new throughout, everything, and that exactly
suits fashionable dressmakers and Miss Ja?
THE NEW AUTUMN* COSTUME.
The novelty ot the season is a costume com?
posed of several shades of one color. For ex?
ample, if the foundation material is green, it
will be trimmed with three different shades,
darker or lighter, or both, of this color; if
brown, with three differest shades of brown,
and the hat must correspond in color and shad?
ing with the dress. The favorite method of
arranging a silk toilette ls to turn it in clusters
of ruchings, or narrow ruffles, which may
either be bound, pinked or feathered upon
the edge. Purple, green, brown or gray
shade very finely, blue not so happily,
tito dark shades of blue always pre?
senting a repulsive and unattractive as?
pect. Poplin, merino and empress cloth
turn handsomelv with narrow bands of plush
in darker shades, or with shaded velvet,
which has been imported in small quanties.
but will be scarce, because the war renders it
difficult to duplicate certain new styles in
trimmings and fabrics. There ls, however, a
very handsome new trimming of American
manufacture introduced this fall, which con?
sists of a narrow band ol soft, moss-like plush.
It is all silk, and made In all shades ol colors.
It ls called ..Marabout." from its softness and
beauty, but it is more like velvet moss. It is
exceedingly effective when arranged in the
different shades of one color upon a plain sur?
SEW GOODS, AND GOODS THAT ARE NOT NEW BUT
Among the new importations of the season
must be mentioned "wool ?ifme," a beautiful
material tor suits, corresponding to tho cotton
satine which was so much admired dunns the
past summer. The due wool fabric ls, how?
ever, much handsomer than any material
could be in cotton, and will undoubtedly at
once take rank with good poplins and other
favorite materials. Belonging to the family of
mohairs, but of a higher grade than any we
have ever seen in this country, ls the "Turkish
Brilliantine." sable brand, lr. ls a.rich, heavy,
glossy, black fabric, thirty inches wide, made
of the pure wool of the Turkish goat, and
quite as handsome as silk. It will undoubted?
ly increase the furore for black suits and
dresses, which exists quite as much in Paris as
in New York. Scotch poplins and English
serges reappear, or will shortly, huge cases ol
them liavlng been received, and a revival
seems likely to take place In all-wool black
and white" checks, which are much
worn abroad, trimmed with black velvet,
and constitute some of the prettiest suits
brought on bv ladies who have recently re?
turned from Paris. The checks are generally
broken. Japanese silks, which we have
heretofore seen only In light colors, and fine
white and black stripes, will be displayed this
fall for the first time In dark autumn colors
and In mixed Jasper patterns. The prices are
a little higher In the brightest, more decided
shades, but the quality is said to be better, and
the appearance, especially In the evening,
very effective. In plain silk the gros grain and
pure poult de soie take the lead of all other
styles, and exhibit wonderful beauty and va?
riety of color and shading. The latest fabric
for urand toilettes ls rich satin brocade, blue,
pink" or light green. Il is only adapted to an?
tique models, and strictly requires the lace
ruffles, the powdered hair and the patches on
the rose-l^af complexion. In itself lt simply
looks like costly window curtains, and ls prob
ablv intended to suit the taste of those persons
who caught the Parisian taste and did them?
selves in chintz window curtains during the
AN EFFECT OF THE WAH,
A singular effect of the war ia already visi?
ble in the arrival among us of French artists
in dress, who systematize their business as
men are accustomed to do whatever they un?
dertake, and who, therefore, bring a readi?
ness, skill and adaptability with which our
slip-shod methods will find ic hard to compete.
Their stock in trade consists ot a book of de?
signs ot morning, walking, visiting and even?
ing costumes. From these any lady can se?
lect her toilette, or she c ia have an original
one designed lor her which will be entirely
different from anything anybody ever had be?
fore. The materials are suggested, but can be
varied to suit lier taste or her pocket. Peo?
ple require a long purse, however, who
employ a French artist to design origi?
nal costumes for them. One of our
large houses has secured a very distin?
guished member of the foreign troupe of male
dressmakers, and is making to order genuine
court costumes, which are to be worn at Re?
publican entertainments during the coming
winter. No two are alike, and each one ls
absolutely a work of art, as perfect and true
to its idea as a poem or a picture. Of their
evening costumes in process of construction
one was of black velvet, yellow satin and real
point lace with garniture of flowers; another
of purple silk, black satin, wide point applique
and ornaments of roses and purple pansies,
and the third of white satin, silver lace and
f ulle, the two sides of the overdress entirely
different-one adorned with white water-lilies
in dark lea/es, the other with marabout feath?
ers. The cost ot the first mentioned was $1000.
'.Bejonia"or shawl costumes were introduc?
ed here last spring, and made a certain im?
pression on account ol' their originality. With?
in a lew weeks they have reappeared, and
will undoubtedly achieve a brief popularity,
os they are simple. Inexpensive and very con?
venient. The most of those on exhibition are
made ol' plain gray-mixed long shawls, which
are cut right across, one-half serving for the
skirt, which is made up with the fringe as a
border, the other furnishing the material for a
half-fittim; jacket with uadersleevesand basque
of unequal lengths to which the fringe is ad
ed. The skirt is closed at the back and laid
In large box-pleats. It ls open in front and
looped up in three large folds at the sides over
any dark skirt, walking length, the shawls
forming only a long upperskirt and jacket.
Made complete they cost only twelve to tltteen
dollars, and will therefore be a rage with those
who like something ucheap and easy,'' and
are not afraid of seeing themselves repeated
at every street corner. Shawls of white and
black checks, and Scotch plaid, will doubtless
be utilized tn this way as the season advances.
ODDS AND ENDS.
The tunics of buff linen and white muslin
which have been worn so largely over black
or colored silk skirts, will be repeated in wool
sat in?, in cashmere and in alpacca, over silk,
poplin and merino, as soon os the weather be?
comes sufficiently cold to warrant it. The
fashion is as prevalent abroad as in this coun?
try; but in Paris the tunics of white muslin
are worn over velvet as well as over silk, and
are lined with colored sarsaet, and bordered
with white lace.
Velvet costumes will be distinctively ele?
gant the coming season; and those who cannot
afford the Lyons article will be fain to console
; themselves with the silk faced velveteen.
The new cloth and velvet cloaks simulate
coat and waistcoat of an old-fashioned style
and cut. Wo. talk about '.novelties," but in
reality everything we get ls a resurrection of
some old dry bones of the past.
nigh bodies for winter house dresses are cut
with a postilion basque formed by one lar<*e
box-pleat in the lappel at thc back. Pointed
waists do not advance very rapidly in popular
favor. The principal styles worn are cut with
a deep point in the baek, which springs out
over the tournure instead of lying c?ase to the
figure as formerly. Hooped skirts are a trifle
larger, but have not yet got beyond eighty
New mixtures for water-proof cloaks are
very pretty. They include green, blue and
Humboldt purples New gray water-proof
cloaks are very neatly and stylishly trimmed
with bands of the same cloth in darker shades,
stitched. JENNIE JONE.

pS*TRE SHIVERING SEASON-THE
loss to the laboring classes of the United States
caused by fever and ague has been estimated at
upwards of two millions of dollars per annnm.
Whole settlements are sometimes prostrated by
the disease, and lt ls regarded ia some localities
as one of those visitations ot Providence which
cannot be avoided. This ls a mistake. As cer?
tainly as any of the evils which are invited by
neglect may be forestalled by precaution, so cer?
tainly mny an attack of intermittent (or remit?
tent) fever be prevented by invigorating the sys?
tem with Hosteler's Stomach Bitters In advance
of the season at which this malady prevails. Pre?
vention, lt ls needless to say, ls the wisest policy;
but it ls consoling to know that where time has
not been thus taken by the rorelcck, and the par?
oxysms have actually commenced, a complete
cure may. in all cases, be rapidly effected by the
use or this powerful vegetarle tonic. The repu?
tation of thc Bitters as a speclt-'c for dyspepsia,
liver complaint, constipation and nervous debili?

THE ONLY UNABRIDGED PEOPLE'S
THE LIFE, Aa, OF ST. PAUL.
It is due to the publishers, whom the subscriber
represents, to say that the "People's Edition" of
this great work ls prepared with much care and
labor in pursuance of the plan of these writers
and under their auspices. It is a greatly im?
proved edition, and substitutes English for the
Latin, Greek and German quotations, so as to
amt readers who, as Dr. Howson says, though
well educated, may not find lt convenient to
refer to Greek or German books. It is not an
American abridgment, bat an English reprint in
clear and large type, with translated notes. It
may be farther distinguished by its leather Dind?
ing, an introduction by the Rev. Dr. Bacon, of
Tale College, whose abilities, atadles and travel
eminently flt him for the service he thus renders.
Thia Edition is, In truth, a "People's Edition," a
book for the million, a national blessing.
