Memorial to the Loyal People of Somi
Carolina —lt is an established fact, that a
large number of our soldiers died from ex
posure and want, and were buried by hun
dreds in whnt is called the Race Course, in
the City of Charleston.
It therefore behooves us as loyal people
that a lilting testimonial be made to the
memory of these brave men; who died or
were brutally murdered by being exposed
without sufficient clothing or proper food,
and with no other cover than the broad can
opy of heaven, and then buried like dogs
with nothing to mark their last resting place
or to protect their remains.
A Committee has been formed to raise
funds to erect a suitable monument and j
fence to protect it, in honor of these brave j
soldiers who died in defence of their coun- j
try : and we do hereby call upon every loyal I
man, woman and child in the State o: South j
Carolina to aid us in the work, and respect- ;
fully ask ministers and their congregations I
to iorm committees to raise funds. Tue con
tribution has been limited to ten cents each,
so that it will give every one the privilege
and debar none from aiding this noble wotk.
South Carolina alone should do the work
and raise ten thousand dollars to complete
it, and show the world that all ht-r children
have not degenerated or forgotten the duty
ther owe to tie defenders of our starry flag.
All communications sLoald he addressed to
the Secretary of the Committee, at Charles
ston, S. C.

The Gas Company. —Some time since, in
speaking of the high price? then ruling the
city, we took occasion to allude to the charge,
of 'slo per thousand feet made by the Gas
Company. Siuce then we learn the price has
been reduced to SB, and a further reduction
may be looked for as soon as the circum
stances of the company will admit. The
company have had many difficulties to con
tend with,especially from the loss and break
age of tubes by the shells and the consequent
nightly loss of gas. They have agreed to
light the city lamps at the rate of §3 30 per
thousand feet, barely cost price of the gas.
A letter from the Dalmncs, dated Nassau
on the 13th of .March, furnishes a very gloomy
picture of the condition of the colony since
the breaking up of the unhealthy Anglo-re
bel trade generated there during the rebel
lion, by the fall of Wilmington and Charles
ton. Hundreds of seataring men and labor
ers were out of employment, and the store
keepers were bankrupting under the weight
of heavy stocks for which they bad no cus
tomers. The British Custom House officers
who were lately kept so busy in handing
fradulent clearances to tho blockade runners
and making jokes ou the trouble of the Union,
were pow without employment, and may be
discharged. Numbers of the steamboat hands
were quite destitute- A man named Lock,
in the rebel service, who captured the British
schooner “Hanover,” when in command of
the armed schooner ‘Retribution, ’ in 1 863,
at Long Cay, was in prison at Nassau for
a breach of the British neutrality laws.—-
Messrs. Scott and Hyman's Benefit To
morrow Evening.— The public will thank us
for calling attention to the benefit of those
excellent actors, Messrs. Scott and Ityman,
to take place to-morrow (Saturday) evening,'
at the Savannah Theatre. The favorite play
of William Tell will be produced, with Mr.
Thomas Weir as William Tell, Miss Maude
St. Leon as Albert, and Mr. Hyman as Ges
ler—a powerful cast: Mr. Scott will sing
the Marseillaise in character, a performance
which has been received night after night
during the past week with the most enthu
siastic applause. Mr. Scott's dress for the
Marsellaise is truly magnificent, and the ac
tion with which he accompanies it is of the
highest order of dramatic art, and impressive
in the extreme.
An excellent farce by the dramatic compa
ny is also included in the bill.
Benevolent Enterprise.—A Fair in aid
of the colored soldiers in the hospitals, is
now being held at Marshall Hall, on Brough
ton st., opposite St. Andrews Hall. An op
portunity is here offered to purchase every
variety of useful and ornamental articles,
and at the same time to assist a noble char
ity. The fair is to continue to the end of the
week, and it is to lie hoped all will attend
and reward liberally the benevolent efforts
of the managers.
Savannah Market. —The schedule adopted
for the price of food sold in the market, falls
very heavy on those who deal in sturgeon.—
At five cents per pound, the schedule rate,
there is but a limited chance for the dealer to
clear himself. Were the schedule rate for
sturgeon applied to the miserable article now
sold for beef in the market, it would have a
great tendency to provide a little food for the
poor animal before he is brought to the
Deserter Arrested.— This morning Daniel
Jewett, a deserter from the 14th New Hamp
shire Regiment, was arrested on board sclir.
E. R. Bennett, for Hilton Head.
Jewett when arrested, was quite a used up
man, hav’mg a black “peeper” and having
just been robbed of #9O in greenbacks.
Jewett is locked up for trial.
Second Provost Court.— This morning a
few unimportant rent cases were disposed of
by Judge Walton.
Generosity.— The other day the shipping
1 clerks at Hilton Head found an envelope on
1 one of their desks, which, on examination,
proved to contain $1,350. It had no super
scription, and had been left in a very careless
manner, among old envelopes and waste
paper. Mr. O’Regan, one of the clerks, vr o
first discovered it, delivered It to Oupt. George
0. Baker, in charge of the officer, who made
every effort to find the owner. The latter
finally arrived, and pfoved to be a merchant
who tad been kindly allowed the use of a
desk, to the inconvenience of the proprietor,
for the purpose of writing a letter. He rather
imperatively demanded the delivery of the mo
ney, and ou its being promptly handed over,
remarked that he was very much obliged,
and rushed off. Capt. Baker, who wouldn’t
for the world do a mean thing, or accept re
muneration for discharging his duty, with a
dryness which is characteristic of him, re
plied that he was quite welcome, aud offered
to pay interest on the money for the time ho
had had it in his possession. One of our cor
respondents, who was present, considers the
occurrence worthy of an item.
Mule and Cart Stolen. —This morning
while a white woman who had brought pro
duce to market was selling the same, her
mule and cart were stolen. At the market
there is daily assembled a lot of worthless
negro and white thieves, who have become a
crying nuisance. The stealing of mules,
horses and of produce exposed for sale, is
becoming too frequent, hnd it should be im
Rates of Drainage.— There should im
mediately be established rates of drayage.
Many complaints are heard of the charges
made by draymen and wagoners, and all
would feel grateful to see published and en
forced fates not of an extortionate character.
Col. Neafie enu undoubtedly have this abuse
rectified, aud it is a matter ol immediate im
First Provost Court.— But little busi
ness was offered this morning, anrl the fol
lowing is a transcript of the docket: —W. H.
Beale, Thomas and Martha Cballfincli, aud
11. D. Essau were allowed to take the oath
of allegiance; 11. F. Willirk, jr., was allowed
to collect the rents ou his real estate; James
Wallis $25 a year ground rent.
Ice Cream. —For over four years this de
lightful declicacy has not tickled the palate
of many Savannahans. The article is now ex
posed for sale at the market. Several colored
citizens are fitting up their wagons for the
business, and the soloon3 in various portions
of the city are getting ready for the run on
“frigicls” during the coming season. Iced
lemonade, sherbet aud mead will once again
be articles of sale.
Istervibw Between Kilpatrick and
Wheeler.— Among the many incidents ot
Sherman's march through South Carolina,
was the following, which transpired ou the
On that day, owing to the many reports
concerning the capture and murder of men
belonging to bis command, General Kilpat
rick arranged- for an interview with General
Wheeler tit Lancaster, in regard to an order
from General Sherman, that prisoners in our
possession should be shot in retaliation for
the murder of our men by Wheeler. This
answered a double purpose : first, giving an
opportunity for a more perfect understanding
relative to the alleged atrocities; second,
causiug the enemy to believe our point of
attack to be Charleston. *
The interview was very pleasing, consid
ering the circumstances, and had the de
sired effect. Nothing was known of the
murders by General Wheeler, and lie posi
tively asserted tfcit no such thing had been
committed by any organization of his com
mand, and, furthermore, would endeavor to
learn if tiiere were any truth in it.
Narrow Escape of Queen Victora.— The j
other day, says the London Court Journal, j
the Queen had a miraculous escape from |
being crushed to death by the falling of a i
tree in the Home Park. Iltr Majesty was ;
taking an ailing on her favorite little Scotch [
pony, and proceeding through the tall
avenue ot elms at Windsor known as Queen i
Elizabeth’s ride, the pony being led by a i
gillie, when, fortunately the servant observed !
one of the large trees falling immediately I
over her Majesty. The groom called out
loudly, and her Majesty, made aware of the
danger by this timely alarm, escaped being
crushed beneath the tree by a few yards only.
An almanac is out in London by which
may be found the day of the week ot any
given date in the past century, and the name
of any day in the year until 1925, inclusive.
Finding dates by it is an amusing pastime
