How to Cure the Epizooty.
The-prevailing and disastrous horse
disease, now called Epizooty or Epizoo
tic, is approaching us. In the meantime
Col. Bacon gives us a recipe which he as
sures us is a certain cure. Ono ounce of
Beniodide of Mercury (commonly called
Red Precipitate) mixed with two ounces
of hogs lard. Trim the hair away a Little
from the glands of the horse and rub the
glands bri?kly with this ointment, ap
plied and rubbed with the fingers. After
rubbing, ?pply a coating of the ointment;
then walk the horse gently for an hour
or an hour and a half, - to keep him from
rubbing it off. This blisters the glands
and throat. Only one application neces
sary. Horse must not be worked while
the disease is on him.

Boston lu Ashes.
In immense conflagrations, as in most
other matters good and bad, America is
beating the world. The telegraph flashes
to us the news that: on Saturday night
and Sunday last, the heart of Boston was
laid in ashes. Boston the proud metrop
olis of New England, indisputably-to
say nothing of her trade, commerce and
general enterprise-the greatest centre
of literature and mental culture on the
Western Continent. This terrible fire
raged all Saturday night and all Sunday
with resistless fury. The finest portion
of the city has been destroyed, and thou
sands of people reduced from wealth to
beggary. Boston waa the greatest shoe
market in America, and not a single
wholesale shoe es tablish m ent is left stand
ing. Immense stocks of shoes, leather,
cotton and woolen goods have been de
stroyed, and the trade in these lines will
be paralyzed for a time. In their first
excitement and horror the Bostonians
set down their loss at tho fabulous sum
of $200,000,000. Minutiae and particulars
of this tremendous conflagration will be
found in our news columns to-day.

P. Getzen, at the residence ot the: bride's
mother, Mr. WILLIAM H. QTJARLES
and Miss MARTHA ANN EWBANKS,
all of this County.
DIED, on tho 20th October, at 135, Bed
ford street, Liverpool, England, Mrs.
JULIA B.. wife ot VANS RANDELL,
Esq , and daughter of the late Capt. John
Lipscomb, of Edgefield, S. C., aged 43
DIED, on the 1st October, 1872, in the
sixty-first year of her age, Mrs. DEM
SEY, wife of Col. M. W. Clary.
She had been the subject of great af
fliction and sufferings lor several years ;
and so severe and constant wore her suf
ferings that she was seldom able to leave
her room. They were often intense, but J
she bore them with becoming patience,
fortitude and meekness. The writer of |
this humble tribute to hpr memory, vis
ited her occasionally during her illness
and long continemeut to her sick cham
ber, but never heard her utter a mur
mur, or a word of impatience or com
plaint In this way, shemanifested more
Christian virtue and excellence than is
usual in cases of so long and so intense
suffering and privation.
For many years she had boen an ex
emplary in em ber of the Pine Pleasant
BaptistChurch. For the cause and suc
cess of Christianity she manifested con
siderable interest," and ever seemed, so
far as tho writer knows, delighted to
hear of the success of the ministry of the
Gospel, the enlargement or revival of |
the Church, and its prosperity.
I think she was a lady of an amiable
and kind disposition. It is said she was
kind-to the poor, and tender toward the
suffering and distressed. Those are ad
mirable Christian virtues. Beyond all
question, the relieving of the poor and
ministering to the distressed, is tho best
evidence of genuine piety ; when so
ministered to the glory of God.
We believe her sufferings are over ;
that she now reposes where ""the wicked
cease to trouble and the weary are at
rest;" that she is now happy with the
pure and good that have preceeded her
to the mansions of ever lasting peace,
?nd has united with them in the song of |
Her companion, children, relations
and friends mourn a loss which we hope
is lier eternal gain. If the militant
Church has lost a good member, the
Church triumphant, has gained one.
