Colored Excu sion to Columbia
The excursion train which we announ
ced to leave here to-day for Columbia to
attend the meeting of the Grand Lodge
of the I. O. of Good Samaritans and
Daughters ef Samaria, which convenes at
Columbia, S C, to-day, left on the regU"
lar train on the W. C. & A. Railroad at
the usual hour this morning. There was
quite a large delegation from this city
to which additions will be made along
the line of the road between here and the
place of destination.
We are glad to notice thut the brick
sidewalk on the West side of Front,
between Walnut and Red Cross streets,
to which ws have on two or three occa
sions called attention, is being taken up
preparatory to being raised some inches
with gravel, after which the brick will be
relaid. This will bring the sidewalk sev
eral inches higher than it now is and
nearly or quite on a level with the street.
It is an improvement which has been long
needed and we are glad for. all concerned
that it is being made.

The camp Meeting
The last installment of these who had
been in attendance at the colored damp
Meeting, held at Gander Hall, arrived
here last evening en the steamer Is is,
and not yesterday noon, as we supposed.
The Is is was not only crowded on her
decks but had two lighters alongside,
which were both well filed. It is a
wonder there were no accidents but the
party reached the city in safety. As well
as could be estimated there were over
two thousand persons at the foot of Chest
nut street laat evening, counting those on
shore who came down to welcome their
friends, as well as those on board the
boat and lighters. A hundred or more
belonged in the Black River section and
remained on board and wen taken back
te their homes last night on the Isis. The
meetings were continued for five days and
nearly one hundred persons professed re
ligion. The crowd was largest on Sunday
and among them on that day it is said
that there were some three hundred white
persons, drawn there through motive, of
interest of curiosity.
We are pleased to state that after m iny
delay 8 and embarrassments the first sec
tion of the Sectional Dry Dock was sue
cesaful launched at abut 3 o'clock this
afternoon. This section is 70 feet long
by 33 feet wide and 7 feet deep and
draw but two feet of water. The tauks
are 26 feet high. The Dock whn oon
plete will embrace feur sections, and there
are three yet to be launched. It is at
Messrs. J. R. Blossom & Evans' yard, in
the Northern part of the city.

Excursion Down the RiTer.
The revenue cutter Colfax took down
the river this morning quite a party,
among whm were Lieut. Governor Rob
inson, Mr. Speaker Moring of the House
of Representatives, A. J. Galloway, Esq,
of GoMsboro, the President of the Pro
duce Exchange, President of the Cham
ber ot Commerce, President of tho Board
of Trade, Mayor Fishblate, Henry Nutt,
Esq., Chairman of the Committee on
River and Harbor Improvements, Custom
House Officials, Vice Consuls of Great
Britain, Germany, Norway and Sweden,
besides other prominent citizens. The
party will make an examination of the
improvements now being made in the
bar and harbor and will probably visit
the fortifications and Smithville before
Macy and Enrich.
It gives us pleasure to chronicle im
provements and the success of our fellow
beings. A fewyears age Brooklyn was
seldom visited by the ladies, for the reakcn
that there was no store of any size loca
ted in that portion of the city. Mr. Hahn
established his dry goods emporium
just across the bridge and now 'his cm
tomers are from all quarters of the city.
He has associated with himself in business
Mr. Victor D. Goodman, of New York,
and the new firm propose, with their in
creased facilities and augmented capital,
to do a much larger business than the
senior member ever did. It will be their
aim to de the largest business done in
this city and to take the lead in low prices
as well as good goods and to be tho recog

ning next, the 30th inst., at the Opera
