DIED, on tho 13 th instant, of Brain. F?\

. **>e- ?
My dear little CHARLIE,
_ 44 There's not a gardon walk we tread,
There's not a fiewer we see,
But brings to mind some hope that's fled.
Some joy* that's gone with thee."
" All that's bright must fade,
The brighest still tho fleetest ;
AU that's sweet was made '
But to be lost when sweetest."
DIED, on the evening of tho 9th. of Janna:
after a chert but severe illness of only four du;
JENNIE, daughter of EDWARD and NANCY Prii
LEY, and adopted daughter of Jons E. and Ricu
S. BURNS, of Edgefield District,
Deep grief rests on these once happy hom
holds; fora bright flo wer h os hoon suddenly snatt
cd away by the cruel hand of Death, to bloom
Eternity. JENNIE,.the gentle, and pure-hearti
Hs gone from us. Her voice is hushed on Eai
?rever. The place that knew ' her will knew li
no more. Nothing can fill the aching void ma
in tho now desolate home-eirole. Scarcely li fte
years of unclouded sunshine, has she trod Hf
pathway, endearing herself to all hy her mai
beautiful traits of character. Tho world w
bright before her; and just advancing to werna
hood, she gave promise of being an. ornament
the little circle in which.she moved. The favori
of her schoolmates, she walked among them u
conscious of the love they bore her. Long, lon
will her memory be dear to us. May Ho enab
the bereaved to say, " Thy will be done."
. " Oh she was too fair aad dear
For our troubled pathway here ;
Heavon,-that was her natural sphere,
Has ita own removed."

WILLJAU BROWN was enlisted as a recruit 1

of 1BC2, and continued with .us, in all tb
dangers and hardships of the soldier's Ufe, bavin
enjoyed remarkably good health ; he was absei
only once from the Company, and then only ft
a short time. As a soldier he was prompt in tb

Scriptures-and tho praise of God.
He died in the 28th year of his age, leaving

PRIVATE H. C. HARRISON, Co. K,*15th ST C
- Regt, and sen of Jas. S. and MARY A. Il A UKI SOS
the subject of-this brief notice, was born Marci
21st 1845, and enlisted for the war in tho above
named Company at the time of its organization
when he was scarcely more than IC years of agc
He served his country most faithfully upou th
Coast of South Carolina, in the Virginia, Mnrylam
and Pennsylvan' - campaigns, abd in tho Wost. A.
a Soldier hp wx_choerful, brave and prompt-evci
ready and willing to discharge his duty. It i.
onihgh to say that ho belonged to KERSHAW';
Brigade, LONGSTREET'S Corps,'and as a soldior o
such a command has ever acquitted himself witt
honer. At the battle of Cbickamanga his gallan
try was such as to wi? tho admiration of all wb<
witnessed it. In a heavy skirmish near Knoxville
on the 13th of Nov. last, while nobly fighting'foi
Southern rights he fell dead, pierced through tu?
right breast and left thigh.
Endowed with enorgy and perseverance, h<
. had only to havo lived to hare made for himsell
a name and left an impression of his worth which
the lapse of years could only have t-fl'aced ; but
he was cut down in the very bloom of youth,
when the qualities which characterized the man
were just hoing fully developed.
It grie>es the writer to think how inadequate
the use ol tho pon must of necessity bo when -an
attempt is made to do justice to tho memory of
one so gifted, gallant and noble.
He has loft behind him, fond parents, an affec
tionate sister and two youthful brothers, to whom
we oiler our sincere sympathies.
A short time previous to the departure of his
Regiment from Virginia te go to Chattanooga, he
sent tho accompanying farewell, address to his
parents, whom ho so devotedly loved, in which be
so tenderly tolls them that if it bo God's will that
be shauld fall in the dofence of his country he was
ready te make the sacrifice.
Farewell to thee father.' although I am young,
I go the war's wild ahiruis,
Our country to save, from oppression and wrong,
Or dh; with my comrades iu arms. .
Farewell, father, dear 1 I may never again
Fondly gaze on those locks thin and gray ;
But if ia the conflict of battle I amelaiu,
To meet thee iu'Heaven I pray.
FareweU to thee, itiotbor! No love is like thine,
So lasting, so deep and so pure ;
And J trust, through the goodness of Providence,
To re tern t3 thy besom seeure.
Farewell mother, door ! If I die far way,
Thy heart will be grieved for thy son,
But God will sustain thee, and cause thee to say,
" Thy will, Righteous Father, be done."
Farewell to you, brothers too ! Dear little boys,
You know not tho meaning of foe ;
May God make me strong in defence of thc cause,
And save you, my brothers, from woe.
Farewflh wy dear brothers I Re loving and good,
And mind what dear mother may say ;
Your brother will come back if best that he should,
For God can his enemies slay.
Farewell, sib*ar, dearQjjtbcn I think of fae wrong,
The fiends would inflict if they could,
* I can scarcely refrain from polluting my tongue,
With a curse on the black-hearted brood.
' Farewell, my dear sister! may God k?cp you puro,
Surrounded, wit)} comforts and friends, .
And blest with the'graco that alone eau secure,
The bliss that We kuow never ends.
Farewell to you all ! and my last it may he,
But may God whom I reverence aud I?ar,,
To a homo that is blest, in" a land that is pure,
Bring safely tho young Volunteer,

Extensive Fire. *
? most disastrous fire occurred in Columbia
yesterday, by wE?cli property-, to the amount,
of several millions of dollars was speedily de
stroyed.* ltsr. cause /remains unknown.' It
-bro?ce out about 10 45 a. m., iu the central
cotton shed of the square-on Lady street next
toAJezander'8 foQiidry.?id machiw shops,
[and^'apidrj -spread to tho two "other sheds.on
the same square and almost as rapidly leaped
j the space ol thu street separating it from,.the
square next above to the east. On the squaro
first named, all the buildings "contaming cot
ton and one containing two- steam engines,
eight or ten sugar mills, a'gfist mill and cast
ings were destroyed. Tho cotton was stored
by J. M.- Blakely & Co., the mills, &e.,- bo- !
longed to John Alexander. One building
fronting the south 05. thi3 square was saved
by great exertions and by ? the energetic and
prompt assistance of Capt. Senn and bia com
pany" of eighty men. Their conduct, bas been
the theme of much praise. It was a diflicult
feat to save this building enveloped as it was
! by others in full conflagration on flie west,
north and cast of it, and near to it. Acot
ton shed' on the square above and several res
idences were consumed. This cotton was also
stored byvBlakely & Co. Two of the dwell
ings belonged to T. D. Feaster. Capt. Causon
was a heavy sufferer-losing his dwelling and
out houses, furniture, and valuable stores of |
provisions,-a considerable quantity of fice,
pickled beef, pork and eight killing hogs.
Later in the day, about 3,30 p. m.,. the flames
extended to the cotton.shed owned by J. G.
Gibbes, on the western corner cf the gas work's
lot. The building and 500 bales upland cot
ton were soon past recovery. " Surprise has
been expressed at the loss of this building.
It is thought, that, at least, the cotton might
have been saved.
It is estimated that 3,750 bales, of upland
and 800 bales of sea island, in the hands of j
Blakely & Co.. and 500 bales of upland, be
longing to Mr. Gibbes, is aSoutrthe amount
of the loss of cotton. We have not learned
the extent ot insurance, except that there
was none on the cotton of Mr.. Gibbes, and
that Mr. Hitt is a loser (having no insurance,)
to the amount of $10,000, on a lot of cotton
stored with Blakely & Co. ? Mr, Alexander's
loss will probably equal $50,000. We have
no doubt that many persons have lost con
siderably, and that the greatest' loss, though
it may be nominally less than those mention
ed, ha3 fallen upon persons who . have been
dispossessed of home and its comforts.
Different conjectures have been expressed
as to tho clause of tho fire. A rigid scrutiny
ought to be instituted into it. We have heard
casually that an attempt was made by an in
cendiary to firo the workshop and mill of I
Mr. Tozer, during the height and fury of |
tho conflagration. Our people cannot bs too
We should haye mentioned before thabour
firemen were promptly on thc spot, and did
all that zeal, energy and sltill could effect to
extinguish the flames- The fire was peculiar
ly angry and uncontrollable in its character,
owing to 'the high wind prevailing, and the
combustible material it fed upon.-?-Columbia
