MAY-PARTY OP THE PUPILS OF CHAT -
HAM ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL.
The pupils of this old and favorably-known
school for young ladles held an exceedingly
pleasant picnic yesterday on the grounds of
the Bradley Vale Royal Farm, which had
been kindly tendered to them by Mr. Brad
ley. The party left town at an early hour in
the morning, iu a train of cars provided for
them through the efforts of Capt. Coverdale
and the kindness of Capt. Meek, A.'Q. M.,
in charge of United States Military Railroads,
and of Mi. Humphries, Supt. U. S. R. R.
General Washburn, who was present with
members of bis staff, did much to further the
irrangeraents and add to the entertainment
of the occasion.
The day was most beautiful. The skies
were never bluer, and the verdure of early
Spring never looked greener or more refresh
ing. Th 6 sun beamed brightly, but a fresh
and invigorating breeze tempered its ardor,
md swept through the beautiful grove,bring
ing the roses of health to the cheeks of the
liberated school-giris, and brightness to the
«ye for their elder companions.
On arriving at the pic-nic ground the party
lispersed themselves through the neighbor
ing woods, some searching through the well
remembered haunts for the first sweet flow
ers o| May; some seeking the ripe blackber
ries under the pilotage of their knowing
younger brothers ; some strolling, in medita
tion upoa the beauty of uature.
The most interesting feature of the morn
ing, however, and perhaps of the whole day,
vas the crowning of the “Queen o’ the May.”
This interesting ceremony took place with all
due form and solemnity. The choice of the
villing subjects feil upon Miss Florence La-
Roche, who wore her leafy honors and exer
cised her gentle dominion for the day with a
charming grace. Upon her coronation she
recited a very pretty poetical address to her
iiege people, which a lack of space, only,
prevents giving in full.
A bountiful picnic diuner, under the super
vision of Master King and his lady Assist
ants, was spread at noon, to which, it is
needless to say, the amplest justice was done.
After dinner the fine band of the 14th Maine
v’olunters, who generously volunteered their
services, gave a promenade concert, diacours
ng their fine music to a highly appreciative
audience. A merry dance on the grass com
pleted the festivities of the afternoon, when
the party returned to the cars.
Here anew treat was in preparation. A
ride down the Gulf Road was projected, and
all gladly seized the opportunity for a
short trip through the beautiful country that
borders this road. The Picnic train passed
through Liberty street with baud playing,
and handkerchiefs waving, and out again in
o the green country. The train proceeded
is far as the Little Ogeechee, and returned,
affording the party a delightful afternoon's
The day thus closed most pleasantly, and
the picnickers separated much pleased at
at the success of the May Party of the Chat
ham Academy High School.

and a Day of Mourning — Some Foolish
Brawlers Squelched — Was the Sacrifice Nec

Boston, April 18.
To the Savannah Herald:
As I write you, the great sorrow occasion
ed by the horrible national tragedy still hangs
like a pall over this community. Words fail
to describe the intense feeling which is ex
cited in the hearts of all our citizens. Bos
ton and the surrounding cities are draped iu
the emblems of mourning, and men go round
the streets with hushed voices and saddened
mien. The contrast from tha days following
the receipt of the news that Lee had surren
dered was dreadful. Then all was joy and
enthusiasm., Friends meetiug in tfie streets
shouted impulsively their congratulations
Processions marched through the streets,
singing national airs. Business was suspend
ed, but the stores were gaily decked with
patriotic emblems. The utmost hilarity pre
vailed over the glorious victory and the
promise of honorable peace. Boston never
saw a day so happy. Fireworks, music, sa
lutes, illuminations and congratulations w ere
the order of the day and night. The rejoic
ing continued from Monday until Friday
night. There was something new’ every day
meetings in the churches, in Faneuil Hall, in
the street, on the Common and other public
grounds. But who can tell what a day will
bring forth ?
The news of the assassination of President
Lincoln was received Friday night, and
spread broadcast over the city and the whole
country by the morning papers. The people
turned out upon the streets, but the great
joy which had animated all faces but a few
hours before, had disappeared. .You might
go from the North End to the SouthEud and
not see one smiling face. The whole com
munity was like one family that had lost a
father. Friends meeting in the street bowed
solemnly, and the expressions “Horrible,’.’
“Awful,” “Dreadful,” “Atrocious,” were
heard an all sides. The city was enveloped
in gloom, and a jocose remark would have
been an insult and indignity to the public
sorrow. Meetings were held at an.early hour
iu publi« places. At the Merchants’ Ex
change, where, a few days before, Rev. Geo.
Ilepworth had publicly given thanks to God
for our great victory, another Clergyman of
fered a fervent prayer in the presence of a
dense crowd of merchants who had read
upon the bulletin board the sad intelligence
of Mr. Lincoln's death with eyes bedewed
wi.h tears and hearts heavy with sorrow.
Business was closed iu all the public
offices and stores, aud half the buildings in
the city were draped with mourning. Minute
guns were fired aud the bells tolled. The
theatres, minstrel halls aud other places o,
amusement were closed—some of them for
aa indefinite period. Even the bar-rooms
and restaurants were closed in the evening.
Edwin Booth, the assassin’s brother, was
about concluding an engagement at the Bos
ton Theatre. He was to appear for the las;
time on Saturday afternoon. Os course he
couldn’t think of appearing uuder the cir
cumstances, and it is doubtful if he ever
acts ngaiu. He left town immediately, and,
it is said, has gone to console his mother in
the unspeakable sorrow which must weigh
her down. Edwin Booth is a loyal man, and
has been on bad terms with Wilkes
the latter was a rabid secessionist. Never
theless, it would not have been safe for him
to appear iu public, for lew knew his politi
cal opinions. About noon on the day when
the sad news was received, a man named
Borland, a merchant from Pittsburg, Fa.,
whose tongue had been loosened by liquor,
announced to the crowd in a saloon
that Wilkes Booth had told
him eight days before that he
was determined to shoot the President, ad
ding that he was insane on that poiut. Offi
cers arrived aud took the man into custody.
He reiterated the statement •to the officers,
but upon being taken to the station house,
changed his tune, and denied ever having
seen or heard of Booth. It was known,
however, that he did know Booth, aud had
been intimate with him, and he is held as a
witness. A few foolish people in this vicin
ity outraged the feeiings of the community
by expressing joy over the sad intelligence,
and were roughly handled in consequence!
There was oue case in the Navy Yard. The
stern old Admiral only expressed regret that
tho workmen did not hang the wretch at
A man was tarred and feathered in
Swampscott, a town some fifteen miles from
here. All about we hear of suspected rebel
sympathizers compelled to float flags at half
mast, or drape their places of business in
mourning. But we hear of n<i life sacrificed
in New England. The mob element does
not flourish here. It is an exotic that does
not grow well in the region where school
houses abound, and education is generally
disseminated. These outrages upon the
popular sense were few and far between.
‘The press denounced the base and bloody
act with one accord, and without distinction
of politics. Even the Boston Courier, a vile
sheet that has been ever eagar to disparage
our cause and bslittle our victories, was is-,
sued io mourning, with a leader lamenting
the awful occurrence. Those people who
belong to the Courier party, whether in the
North or iu the .South, may well lament
It is well known that President Lincoln
and Secretary Seward were among the most
conservative men in the Government—the
friends of a lenient policy—of pacification to
avoid as much as possible the humiliation of
the Southern people. Lieut. Gen. Ewell, a
prisoner, on his way through this city to Ft.
Warren, in the harbor, declared that it was
heavy news for the South. With Andy John
son at the head of the Government, and the
people behind him, outraged and hardened
by this fearful sacrifice, rebels cannot expect
that lenient policy which President Lincoln
had . determined to pursue, in view of the
universal desire for peace, and his over in
tense anxiety to see the country happy and
united again during his administration. Were
we prepared to be too lenient—to grant terms
too liberal for the safety of the country
in the future? Was this last great
sacrifice necessary to “whet our almost
blunted purpose?” God knows. -I hepe
that this great wrong will be overruled for
right* and that the contemptible assassins
wii! prove to be the instruments in the hands
of the Ruler of Nations for the pacification
of our distracted count 17 upon a basis of
eteruaE justice—that this horrible deed will
unite all .true men as one uuder the Union
The announcement of a suspension of re
cruiting and drafting seemed to us to be 'a
substantial token of peace; and since it was
iuade, a large class of thieves uud swindlers
have found themselves in the situation of
that eminent colored soldier who had rather
be a toad, &c. Recruits are plenty now, but
bounties are played out. The bounty jump
ers and substitute brokers will be obliged to
return to the legitimate prosecution of their
professions—such as pocket-pickiug, bur
glary, robbeiy, and so on. lota.

Messrs. Editors: —There have been several
improvemen s here of late which you have
not yet noticed. Your paper has a large
circulation here and everybody looks to it
exclusively for the daily news.
Col. Peter Dunbar is engaged in fitting up a
large warehouse at the month of Mitchelville
Creek, for the convenience of merchants. A
canal is being cut through a bar at the mouth
of the creek, so that light draught vessels

which was much needed.
Messrs. Dennis & Marvin have fitted up
an elegant billiard saloon iu anew building
on Merchant's Row, in the rear of No. 21,
just above Capt. Atwood's store. This was
an institution much needed, and has enabled
many who before could find no congenial

Mr. Sears has in view the enlargement of
the Now South buildings, the present ones
being inadequate to bis business.
Cheap Living in Paris.—We have fre
quently heard it alleged that the Parisian
capital was famous for its cheapness and
economy' iu living. It is a well established
fact, however, that the gay capital of the
Emperor Napoleon has long been known as
a refuge and au asylum for persons of de
cayed fortunes and limited means, who re
pi thither to rehabilitate and recruit their
exhausted exchequers by economy and re
trenchment iu living. It is said that foreign
ers are more numerous in Paris than in al
most any other continental city; aud it is not
to be woudered at, when fun, enjoyment and
good living can be had at rates insignificantly
low in comparison to other and less desirable
places of residence. A friend writing from
Paris remarks that lie recently hired a small
but elegant dwelling house, furnished lbr 80
francs (f 1(5) per mouth. It was on the out

certainly a gay aud festive place to cast vour
