by the above notice that our Editor is off on another

PAETICULAR OF THE FIRE.
In a brief postscript hastily written (says the
Columbia .Times) we announced, yesterday
morning that during the- previous night the
block of buildings, bounded North by Washing
ton street, East by Sumter street, South by
Lady streat, and West by Richardson street,
was almost entirely laid in smouldering ruincs
by fire. Our distant readers will better under
stand the locality, when we mention that the
block was immediatelf North of Hunt's Hotel
and East of the Congaree House. After care
fill inquiry we have leatfhed the following par
The fire ofiginated th the rear of Mr. D. F.
bpigener's Grocery Store, which was of brick,
and was nndonbtedly kindled hy an incendiary.
The fiendish tretch effected an*6pening through
the wall, by removing a few bricks beihind 'the
fire place, which portion of the wall was only
otne brick thick,'eaused by the disintegration of
the chimney jaws. Through this opening he
must have thrown fire into the Store. This seems
to .be the unanimious opinion as to its origin. of
those who first discovered the fire. The adja
cent buildings being of wood, and a fre.,h breeie
blowing at the time, the consuming element
defied all control and soon enveloped almost the
entire square, in despite of the active exertions
of our fire coinpanies, aided by a large number
of other citizens of the town. In til. conntex
ion we will remark that the Independent Fire
Company, the Hook and Ladder Company, and
the Fire Company composed of negroes, con
tended manfully for the mcastery over the ire,
and did not ce:se their exertions to save the
property of their fellow citizens, itntil further
effort w:b no longer nieeded. The (arolini
Blues, under the orders (it their Capinin, Earku
koo, and the Richland Volunteer Ritles. tinder
the command of Captain Radelille, did e'ective
service in preserving order, and in guarding the
property saved from the conflagration. Our
worthy Alayor and Councilmen were present,
aiding and directing the operations of the fire
The entire block was consnimed, save only a
one story wooden building, occupied by G. A.
Pelton, a two story building occupied by Pal.
mer & Hodges as a tin ware shop, and another
building occupied as a Barber's shop. and by H
& S. Beard's fruit and confeclionary store, all
property of thb estate of Edgar. These are lo
cated at the intersection of Richardson and LUdy
streets. A bakery on Lady street also still re
mains, and a dwelling at the intersection of Lady
and Sumter streets. Adjoining this is a small
wooden tenement, which is utneonsumed.
We subjoin a list of the sufferers; which is as
accurately compiled as circumstances would al.
low. Beginning at the corner stores, at the in
tersection of Richardson and Washington streets.
This property, consisting of Dr. C. 11. Mliot's
