The Heaven in August, i
An enthusiastic astronomer thus writes
of the Heavens during the present month:
"The skies of the soft summer nights will
be full of interest for human observation.
Two full moons will shed their rounded
radiance over the sleeping earth and flood
the landscape and seascape with silvery
ight. Jupiter will reign supreme in the
early astern sky, and Venus, in the
height of her renown, will hang in pen
sive beauty amid the glowing west.1 Later
n tbe night. Mars and Saturn will divide
the starry honors with Jupiter, the celes
tial trio gaining in size and brightness
as they approach their opposition. The
oarth will plough her way through the
August meteor- zone, and myriad meteors
dissolving in fiery tears will give evidence
of tbe annual passage. Besides all this,
there will be conjunctions and oppositions,
visible and invisible, of the great celestial
forces, as well as a rarely beautiful phe
nomenon - in the occultatien of the red
star Antares, the leading brilliant in Scor
pio, by the moon on the evening of the
24th, not far from half-past 19. .Observers
will have busy work in tracing out the
movements here indicated on the glowing
map which every star-lit night lies open
above our heads. If the pleasure-seekers
among the mountains, In rural retreats
and on the sea-shore, would cultivate a
taste for astronomy, how gTand and uu
interruptad would be lb, ir fisld for night

firmament that nightly renews its mira

A loose red woolen flannel shirt should
be worn next to the skin (both summer
and winter. It should be "loose,' so
that its moving upon the skin may keep
up a good circulation there: "red." ibe
cause white flannel fills up, becomes stiff
and impervious: woolen." because
woolen flannel cenveys the perspiration
from the under to the outer surface
where either tbe cotton shirt absorbs it or
tbe air dries it without injury to the
body. On account of these properties.
sailors wear red woolen flannel even dur
ing mid-summer in hot countriesj Of
course a very thin material should be
worn in summer. I

Yesterday afternoon, between the hours
of one and two o'clock, the boarding house
of Mri P. Prioleau, at Smithville, was
entered and robbed ef considerable money.
The thief entered the house through a
window opening into Mrs. Draper's
sleeping apartment, and while she was
at dinner. Tbe window sash was up and
the blinds chained in, but the thief suc
ceeded in snapping the links and effecting
an entrance. The bureau drawers were
found open and from them the money was
taken. There is no clue as to the perpe
trator of the theft but it is to be hoped
that the scouudrel who is bold enough to
rob a dwelling in the broad day-light
may be caught and dealt with as severely
as the law will permit. .
A horse attached to a dray belonging to
a colored man by the name of Abram
Mosdey became frightened while standing
in the Puree 11 House alley to-day, and
started off at full speed in the direction of
Sscend street turning to the right as soon
as he reached the street, he dashed around
the corner of the Commercial Hotel into
Maiket street, thence down the latter
named street in the direction of the river.
At the head of the market, a lady who
was passing at the time nairowly escaped
being run over. The horse had nearly
reached Market Dock before he was
brought to a ha It. j
The owner and driver was carried be
fore Acting Mayor Bowden, who repri
manded him for leaving his horse stand
ing alono and then issued orders to the
police to carry into effect the ordinance
already in existence against fast driving
in the streets and particularly as to drays
and trucks. Good I Mr; pro tern. .
The Fire T--.li Morning
The alarm of fire was sounded about 2
o'clock this morning, caused by the
burning of a wooden store building,
corner Third and! Orange streets, occupied
as a grocery store by Mr. Riohard Teitgen.
The alarm was first given by some persons
passing along in the street who discovered
dense volumes of smoke issuing from, the
cracks in tha door. The alarm ws
promptly given out but the entire building
with its contents was in dames before
the department coukjj get there, so
thoroughly inflammable: was it all.
The building was an old concern, worth
probably about $300. It wad the prop
erty of Mr. Wm. B. Giles, and on it
there was no insurance. Mr. Teitgen
says that he had about $1,109 of stock
on hand; he was insured with Messrs.
Jno. W. Gordon k Bro. in the Liverpool,
London & Globe, for $800. Mr. Teitgen
was at the Sound last night and knew
nothing of his loss until this morning.
There is co clue to the origin cf the firC
There are several frame dwellings in
close proximity to the building which was
destroyed and !the fact that they were
saved from the names is due to the zealous
and efficient efforts of the fire department.
Criminal Court- !
The MttentiDn cf this Conrt to-day was
occupied for tbe better pirt of the day
with tbe trial of Henry Sebriver, the
young man who shot and killed Wm.
Jones, colored,' a few diys since in Capt
Fear township, n account of which has
ilready been published in the Keview
Friday having been set apart for the trial
a special venire of fifty go xi and lawful
citizens wj4 made and at 9 o'clock this
ra rning, tbe Coort having convened, the
drawing of ihonan.-s l.r those who werej
to 8rve or be rt jrcted as jurors fr in
among the fifty persons mentioned above
was commenced.. In about an hour's time
the counsel forj tie defense
had bcuied ten jurors but
at this time the names were ali exhausted.
Another special venire of ten men wa
ordered byHhe Court to te suinruoued at
once. At a quarter to 12 o'clock the j ir
was made up atd tbe counsel on Loth
sides proceeded to business The first and
only witnesses called were those on the
part of the State. A colored man, John
Dudley by name, and a colored woman
the wife of Randall Ramsey, whom !the
defendant at the bar went with the prop
er papers to arrest, at the time of the
unfortunate killing, and a colored man,
John Stanford, by bame. The courjsel
for the defense, Hon I D. L. Russell and
Marsden Bellamy, Esq., brought forward
no witnesses for the defense, but content
ed themselves with the evidence of the.
State's witnesses'. This entitled the de
fence to be last heard before the jury, con
sequently Mr. Solicitor Moore opened the
argument before the jury. We
given none of the evidence
as it was the sime as s
at the preliminary examination published
several days ago, and which was all,or near
ly all, clear to iho&e who heard insufficient
to prove that the killing must have been
with no malice aforethought, but simply as
the result cf an unfortunate combination
of circumstancesT the mistaking of! the
deceased by the defendant for the party
whom he was trying to arrest, as it was
night and not clear enough to distinguish
features, but sufficiently light by the stars
to show that the party running towards
the defendant had a weapon in his hand.
Col. Moore, the Solicitor, acquitted hie .
self in his usual good style before' tho
jury. Air. Bellamy opened ror me oeience
in an able and exhaustive speech j and
Judge Russell closed up with a few sledge
hammer blows. His Honor then delivered
a clear and explicit charge of about fif
teen or twenty minutes' i duration, and
shortly after 2 o'clock j! told i the jury to
'take the question, '9 when they retired to
the Jury Room to make up their verdict.
At half-past 5 o'clock this afternoon
the jury returned to the Court Room and
rendered a verdict of not guilty. !
