DIED, on the- 13th instant, of Brain. Farer,
CHARLES WISE, youngest child af Lr. J. %
and Mrs. R. 3. DEVORE, in the- 5th year of bisJ
My dear little CHARLIE, '
_ ** ?h cr o's not ? gardon walk we tread,
There's not a flower we see,
. But brings to mind some hope that's fled,
Some jey'thaf s gone with thee."
"All that's bright must fade,
Th? brighest still tho fleetest
All that's sweet was made '
But to be lost when sweetest."
. DIED, on the evening of tho 9th. of January,
aftor a short but severe illness of only four days,
JENNIE, daughter of EDWARD and NANCY PRES
LEY, and adopted daughter of JOHN F. and RACU-K L
S. BURNS, of Edgefield District ?
Deep grief rests on these once happy house
holds; fora bright flower has boon suddenly snatch
ed away by the cruel hand of Death, to bloom in
Eternity. JENNIE, the gentle, and pure-hearted,
fis gone from us. Her voice is hushed on Eartb
orevor. The place that knew her will know her
no more. Nothing can fill thc aching void mude
in tho now desolate bome-cirole. Scarcely fifteen
years of unclouded sunshine, has she trod life's
pathway, endearing herself to all by hor many |
beautiful traits of character. .The world was
bright before her; and just advancing to woman
hood, she gave promise of being au ornament to
the little circle in which, s he moved. The favorite
of her schoolmates, she walked among them un
conscious of the love they bore her. Long, long,
will her memory be dear to us. May Ho enablo
the bereaved to say, " Thy will be done."
. i? Oh she was too fair and dear
For our troubled pathway here ;
H-mven,-that was her natural sphere,
Has its own removed."
FELL, in a skirmish ia front of Knoxville; on
the 18th day of Nov. last,. Private WILLIAM
BROWN, Co. K, 15th Regt. S. C. V.
Wi LLIIU BROWX was enlisted as a recruit to
the above-named Company in tho early portion
of 1SC2, and continued with .us, in all the
dangers and hardships of thc soldior's life, having
enjoyed remarkably good health ; he was absent
only once from tho Company, and theu ouly for
a short time. As a soldier he was prompt in the
discharge of duty, and beharcd well in battle;
as a man he was temperate und pious, much of
his timo boing dovoted to tho readiug of the
Scriptures and the praise of God.
Ha died in -the 28th year of his age, leaving a
a loving wifo and several little children, whom he
loved most devotedly. Ho also lcMftbehind two
brothers in the same Company. With his family
ead friends we sincerely sympathize, and es
pecially with tho bereaved wifo. Wo hope and
believe that- her husband is now where the
- " wicked cease from troubling, and tho weariod
are at resL" ? ' H. I. BYRD.
PRIVATE H. C. HARRISON, Co. K,*15th ST C.
Regt, and son of Jas. S. and MART A. HARRISON,
the subject of-this brief notice, was horn March
21st 1S45, and enlisted for the war in tho above
named Company at the time of its organization,
when he was scarcely more thu? 16 years ef ago.
He sorred his country most faithfully upou tho
Coast of South Carolina, in the Virginia, Maryland
and Pennsylvania campaigns, and in tbo West. As
a Soldier he was cheerful, brave and prompt-ever
ready and willing to discharge his duty. It is
cntfugh to say that ho belonged to KEKSIIAW'S
Drigode, LONGSTREET'S Corps, and as a soldier of
such a command has ever acquitted himself with
honor. At the battle of Cbicknmauga his gallan
try was such RS to wiri tho admiration of all who
witnessed it. In a h eu ry skirmish near Knoxville,
on the 13th of Nov. Ia3t, while nobly fighting'for
Southern rights ho fell dead, pierced through the
right breast and left thigh.
Endowed with energy and perseverance, he
hud only to have lived to hare made fur himself
a namo and left an impression of his worth which
the lapse of years could only have effaced; but
he was cut down io the very bloom of youth,
When tho qualities which characterized the man
were just boing fully developed.
It grieVes thc writer to think how inadequate
the use of tho pon must of necessity bo when -an
attempt is made to do justice to the memory of
ORO SO gifted, gallant and noble.
He has loft behind him, fond parents, an affec
tionate sister and two youthful brothers, to whom
wo offer our sincere sympathies.
A short time previous to the departure of his
Regiment from Virginia te go to Chattanooga, Lo
sent tho accompanyiug farewell, address to his
parent?, whom ho so devotedly loved, in which he
so tenderly tolls them that if it be God's will that
he shauld fall in the defence of his country he was
ready to make the sacrifice.
Farewell to theo father ! alliough I am young,
I go the war's wild alarm?,
Our country to save from oppression and wrong,
Or db; with my comrades ?u arms. .
Farewell, father, dear ! I may never again
Fondly gaze on those locks thin and gray ;
But if in the conflict of battle I anveluiu,
To meet thee ia'Heaven I pray.
Farewell to thee, mothor! No love is likTe thine,
So lasting, so deep and so pure :
A,nd j trust, through the goodnc.s of Providence,
To roten: to thy besom seeure.
Farewell mother, doar ! 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 ! Donr little boys,
You know not tho meaning of foe ;
May God make me strong in defenoe of thc cause,
And save you, my brothers, from woe.
Fare w?lb my dear brothers ! De hiring and good,
And mind what dear mother may say ;
Your brother will eenie back if best that he should,
For God can his enemies clay.
Farewell, sisbsr, dear lamben I think of the 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 koop you puro,
Surrounded, v,UR comforts and friends,
And blest with the'gruce that alone eau seeure,
The bliss that wo kuow uevcr ends.
Farewell to you all ! and my last it may he,
But m?y God whom I revercuec aud fear,,
To a homo that is blest, in "a land that is pure,
Bring safely tho young Volunteer,

. ' ' ' Exte ?ive Fire?
A moat disastrous lire occurred in Columbia,
yesterday, by'whtck property-, to the amount,
of several millions of dollars was speedily de'-"
stroy?d> Itr cause remains unknown.' It
broke out about 10 45 a. m., iu the c'eutral
cotton shed of the square on Lady street next
to Alexarjder's foundry .and . machine shops,
andjrapidry -aproad to tho two other sheds .on
the same square and almost os rapidly,leaped
the space ot the .street separating it from, the
square next above to the east. On the squaro
first named, all the buildings containing 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., tbs mills, &c, be
longed to John Alexander. One building
fronting tho south on. this square was saved
by great exertions and by . the energetic and
prompt assistance of Capt. Senu and his com
pany'of eighty men. Their conduct has been
the theme of much praise. It was a difficult
feat to save this building enveloped as it was
by others in full conflagration on the west,
north and east of it, and near to it. Acot
ton shed' on the square above and several res
idence's were consumed. This cotton was also
stored by-Blakely & Co. Two of the dwell
ings belonged to T. D. Feaster. Capt. Casson
was a heavy sufferer-losing his dwelling and
out houses, furniture, and valuable stores of
provisions,-a considerable quantity of rico,
pickled beef, pork and eight killing hogs.
Later in the day, about 5,30 p. m.,. the flames
extended to the cotton, shed owned by J. G
Gibbes, on the western corner cf the gas work'
lot. The building and 500 bales upland cot
ton were soon past recovery. Surprise has
been expressed at tho loss of this building
[t is thought, that, at least, the cotton might
have been saved.
It is estimated that. 3,750 bales of upland
md 800 bales of sea island, in the hands of
Blakely & Co.. and 500 bales of npland, be
longing to Mr. Gibbes, is aBout-the ?mount
jf the loss of cotton. We have not learned,
the extent of insurance, except that there
was none on the cotton of Mr. Gibbes, and
that Mr. Hitt is a loser (havingno insurance,
to the amount of .$10,000, on a lot of cotton
?tored with Blakely & Co. ! Mr. Alexander's
loss will probably equal #50,000. We have
so doubt that many persons have lost con
=iderably, anti that the greatest' loss, thou "
it may be nominally less than those inention
:d, has fallen upon persons who . hav? been
lisnossessed pf home and its comforts.
Diff?r?t conjectures have been expressed
xs to the cause of tho fire. A rigid scrutiny
)ugbt to be instituted into it. We have heard
casually that an attempt was mad? by an in
:endiary to fire the work shop and mili of
Mr. Tozer, during the height and fury of
thc conflagration. Our people cannot bs too
We should haye mentioned before that-our
iremen were promptly on thc spot, and did
ill that zeal, energy and skill could effect to
5Xtiugui?h the flames^ The fire was peculiar
y angry and uncontrollable in its character,
