Extensive Pire at Baltimore.
BALTIMORE, July 25-^1.45 P. M.
An immense fire has just broken out at
the comer of Clay and Park streets in thc
centre of tho cityT Mt eommeikvd ?ii Jus.
Thomas tfc Co.'s steam turning and prun
ing mills, which' have a lumber yard at
tached, at about 10 o'clock this morning.
A general alarm was founded at once,
but the flames gained n rapid headway
and soon extended to the three adjoining
From the planing mills, where it origi
nated, the fire rapidly spread across Clay
street to the block bounded by Howard
Liberty, Saratoga and Clay streets, con
suming nearly the entire block. From
Clay street south the tire worsed its way
back to Lexington street, burning all the
buildings on Park street, and burning
nearly every building on the west side 0/
Park street from Lexington to Saratoga'},
street. Fully two-thirds of the block
bounded by "Clay, Park, Saratoga and
Howard streets has been burned. It is
probable that the fire will be confined to
the area bounded by Lexington street on
the south, Howard street on the west,
Mulberry street on the north, and Liberty
street on. the east.
Four churches have already beer burn
ed, and the Presbyterinn Church, " Dr.
Smith's/' and the Cathedral are threaten
ed. The First English Lutheran Church
has been entirely consumed.
BALTIMORE, July 25-2 P. M
The fire ?3 still raging. Eight* block
of fine buildings have been burned. Thc
authorities are sending for outside help
The water supply is foiling. Clay street,
from Liberty to Howard, two squares, is
burned out. This is a narrow street filled
with carpenter shops and box factories
The steeple ot the Central Presbyterian
" Church is on fire.
At half-past one o'clock the fiercest por
tion of th*-- fire was on Saratoga street
Between Park and Liberty streets, on th
south side, every house on the square is
in flames. The fire to this square cam*
from back buildings, which reaeh to the
destroyed house's on Clay street. Un
Saratoga to H<>ward street, on the soutn
side, the houses were still burning at one
Thc course of the fire from Thomas's
Factory, where it commenced, was
Park street on one side and the rear ?i
St. Alphonsus School on the other sid?'
Thc buming shingles and spark.- stiried
the fire in the squares on the north side
of Mulberry street, between Cathedral
and Parks streets. The fire then dashed
across the street to the Academy of Arts.
Thc dome of thc Cathedral at one time
was on fire, but was put out by citizen?
who were stationed on thc roof prepared
At ILK) o'clock, the casings of the win
dows of St. Alphonsus Church were on
fire, tor thc third time. Sparks .vere show
ered all over the church from the burning
houses in front and alongside of it. Not
withstanding the intensity of flames, and
thc natural excitement incident thereto,
no panic prevailed in the neighborhood o?
thc Arc, but all did their utmost to pre
vent the spread of the flames. The new
Salvages Corps appeared on the scene,
and are doing good service. No estimate
of thc damage ft possible under the cir
cumstances. The work of moving is stili
going forward, and the streets are impas
sable. On Mulberry street, thc building
of the Maryland Academy of Alt has
been burned. Dr. Dalrymple!? school ad-j
joining is on fire. Three handsome pri
vate residences on the north side of Mul
berry street, between Cathedral street,
street and Park, took lire, but were sav
ed with considerable damage. A force o'
forty men are passing water to the doun
of the Cathedral, which is covered with

Clay street, on which the Are originated
to day is a small street leginning at Lib
erty street, auout midway between and
parallel with Saratoga and Lexington
streets, running west, intersecting^ Park
and Howard streets, and stopping at Eutaw.
The fire originated on the south side'
Clay street, near Park, in Thomas's plan
ing mill, as before stated.
flu fire is now completely under con
trol, and many who removed goods and
furniture on the blocks adjacent to the
fire are moving back. Reports are still
circulated tha' several children were burn
ed and men kilted, but a strict inquiry at
tue marshal's office fails to verify anv
deaths by burning.
BALTIMORE, July 26, m.
The loss sustained by the Central Pres
byterian Church is *70,0??. Insurance.
$?0,000. The Sisters.of the Convent 0!
Notre Dame, and the St. Alphonsus school
and library have lost $8,000, but were in
sured. The fire stopped on Saratoga
street.. The Central Garden Lager Beer j
Saloon and the building occupied by Re
demptionist Fathers were flooded. The
English Lutheran Church with the Par
sonage and a valuable library were bum
ed. The University of Maryland and the
Man-land Academy of Arts were partlv
bumed ; thc former was also flooded with
water. The Museum attached to the
Academy was unharmed. Most of the
pictures were removed.
The insurance men think that from five
to six hundred thousand dollars will cover
the loss. The disaster, they claim, will
not effect the solvency of "the insurance
companies. No lives were lost. Sixty
Tbe Sun, this morning, estimates the
loss by fire yesterday at five hundred
thousand dollars, and remarks that"'good
judges estimate the damage as low as bc
tween $300,000 and *400,000." Thc
Gazette estimates the loss at from five to
eight hundred thousand dollars, and the
American says the loss will closely ap
proximate one million.
The Railroad Convention at Abbeville.
We leam that our Anderson friends a*
fully alive to thejimportance of the propos
"d route from Chicago tojthe Atlantic, auci
will be fully represented at the Abbevilh
Convention which meets on the 13th Au
gust ; and that Edgefield and other coun
ties and perhaps Augusta also will ?cnn
delegations. ?Ve 'are sure that the peo
pie of Abbeville, as equally interested,
will manifest the same enthusiasm, and
extend to thc enterprise^their active and
earnest co-operation. We call again their
attention to thc proposed meeting on Sale
dav in August, for the appointment of
delegates. Other counties will be well
represented, and let Abbeville appoint
some of her best men to represent her in
terests in tho coming convention.
And what is the, interest of Abbeville
. in the premises? lt is to be placed on a | 1
great highway of commerce leading from
the lakes to the seaboard, which will pour
into her lap the wealth of the East and
the West. Thc attendant blessings which
would follow the 'completion of such an
. enterprise are beyond computation, and
to secure them requires onlv the proper
effort in the right direction. Nature has
done her part in giving us the opportuni
ty of securing the road, and we must take
care that we do not neglcct.it.
Let us have a full representation of our

MAK'S HEAD Crr OFF BY LIGHTNING.
-A young man by the name of William
Robertson, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, was
out hunting on the 4th of July, ami did
not return as was expected. After two
days' search by his friends, he was found
about three miles from town, lying about
fifteen feet from a big free which had been
struck by lightning. His head was sever
ed from his body, and the two were lying .
some distance apart. The theory of th- l'
coroner's jury is that Robertson took J *
shelter nndcr the tree, with his gun upon
his shoulder, thereby drawing the electric
ity upon himself.

Juhi>8tou's Depot at High Tide.
On Friday last. Johnston's Depot awoke
rom its sleep in the summer sun, audi h
sut on an appearance as brilliant and gay
is the great diamond sash of ?he Shah of
Persia. Who has not reads|atoly of the
Shah-and of his great diamond sash
md of his fantastic Eastern tricks at the
Courts of Europe? And, by-the by, that
was a pretty compliment thc Shah paid
:o Paiis after his first drive through her
beautiful streets. Said bc, " Paris looks
like a bride in her wedding dress." And
this is exactly what might have been said
?TJohnston's on last Friday. She look
ed like a bride in her wedding dress.
-?iBut do we not err in implying that
Johnston's sleeps-or ever slept? We
think we do. Sine? thc iron horse tramp
ed Johnston's into life four years ago,
she bas never slept. And if she ever
has, it bas been with one eye open. She
is too young and strong to require sleep.
And just here let us exhort the people
of Johnston's, when it shall be incorpo
rated and christened, to name it wisely
and well. There is much, very much in
a name. Let it not bc " Prosperltv," nor
"Patience," nor APerseverance," nor
"Consolation," nor "Humility," nor
" Benevolence," nor any other of thc
virtues or moral attributes. And for
God's sake do not insult it with an " In
jun name." Give it a good respectable
English name that will be suggestive of
our past history, and sound well in our
But the events of the day claim our
notice. Listen first, however, to an an
ecdote, which strikes us as being apropos.
" What tune does you call dat?" a plan
tation darkey once asked, as the story
goes, of an itinerant disciple of Paganini,
as tho latter dropped his bow after a
somewhat severe struggle to evoke from
bis cracked Cremona that nasty bitof our
national melody yclept " Yankee Doo
" J&ss play it agiu, please. '
Thc predatory artist responded to thc*
encore with that accommodating spirit
characteristic of artists off as well as on*
the stage. "Jess play it agin, please!"
repeated, with increased earnestness, the
enraptured nigger, wheu the bow weht
down a second time.
More of patriotic tire was thrown into
the tune, but the Ethiopian was not sat
isfied. At the close, each time, he en
treated, " Jess play it agin, please." At
length the bridge broke, the strings Hew
off with a whack, and the music ceased.
" Thc things bust.'" said the bow-scraper,
" cau't play no more."
"Whistle it, dance it, pat it, anything
iris to keep dut tune a gwine /" broke out
beseechingly the deeply impassioned lis
And thus it is'with writing up thc
scenes and incidents of an Edgefield
school exhibition, barbecue and pic-nic.
These celebrations have reached about
the same degree of sameness as repeti
tions of "Yankee Doodle." It is pro
foundly difficult to introduce any very
By 10 A. M., tho scenes in, andover,
and around Johnston's were extremely
animated and picturesque. On the night
previous, guests from all parts, Co
lumbia, Augusta, Lexiugton, Saluda,
and our own village, had rendez
voused in the hospitable mansions of
the neighborhood. And as the beauti
fully dressed ladies and their gallant
escorts stepped from their carriages and
buggies, it seemed a grand gala day of
fashion's devoutest votaries. Tho coup
d'ocil, the lovely women, the spruce gen
tlemen, the beautiful little children, the
horses, thevehicles, themingliug masses
of grave, and gay ; young, and old ; rich,
and poor; high, and low; all made a
picture alike vivid, pleaslngand exciting
-and all enlivened by strains of sweet
est and truest music.
At Johnston's is an embryo brass band
-some twelve or fourteen of the most
prominent and intelligent young gentle
men of the vicinity. Their teacher is an
old and experienced German musician
of Augusta, himself a very cunning
violinist, and, judging from their per
formances on this day, they give the ut
most promise. The waltzes, galops and
popular airs already given by them, are
played with that perfect time and even
ness of tone, which are so necessary in
the beginning to lead to final brilliant
execution. We bei.' the Johnston's Band
to enroll us among their best friends.
The day began with pleasing recitations
and declamations from a few of the
younger pupils of the Rev. Mr. Broad
dus-in the broad and airy hall of the
liandsome now Academy. For two days
previous, Mr. Broaddus' examination
liad been going on quietly before the
patrons and friends of the school
On the morning in question, after the
usual religious exercises of the school, a
little fairy girl of H y ears stepped forth,
ind with bewitching childish grace and
innocence, spoke a speech of welcome to
tho audience. The natural beaut;* of the
i-hild was enhanced bj-a costume of fault
less beauty and appropriateness. Wc
ilways pay an instinctive tribute to the
lovely womanliness of those mothers
who dress their little children beautiful
ly. This tiny girl was Emma Calhoun,
the daughter of Mr. J. W. Calhoun.
And then, in rapid succession, came a
well-executed dialogue on the "Close of
School" by Misses Eunice Bartley and
Marina Long. The recitation of an ex
quisite poem, "Marriage of the Sun ana
Moon," by Miss Beulah Kenney-given
with extreme clearness and intelligence.
A recitation of lines cut from the Adver
tiser-" Let us try tobo Happy"-by our
bright and pretty little friend and former
neighbor, Miss Emmie Minis. Another
[>oem-love of tho South being its bur
len-admirably repeated by Miss Laura
Bartley. A highly successful comic
joem by Master Albert Lott. And final
v l?e awarding of the testimonials of
nerit. . ?
Of these testimonials there were two,
me of which was awarded to Miss Laura
3artley, the other to Miss Ella Bartley
iousins-and of the highest grade of
nerit in recitation, progress and deport
nent. Names of other pupils were read
?ut as worthy of merit in certain classes.
And hereupon, the school, nude and
emale, formed into a procession, and,
leaded by the band and followed by a
ountlcss host of spectators, madoatri
impbant march to the grove in which
tood thc speaker's stand.
The speaker of the day was our talent
d young townsman, Mr. John C. Shep
lard, who, after the crowd was scated 1
nd quiet prevailed, was introduced to 1
ho audience in nattering terms by Capt. 1
'om Jones. The Rev. Mr. Broaddus, 1
?apt. Jones and Col. T. G. Bacon occu- !
icd seats upon tho stand. As rdganN
?ie speech we will not enter into detail. '
t exhibited a decided talent for writing '
ure and elegant English, it exhibited
ide and well directed research, it ex- .
ibited profound acquaintance both with 1
lassie lore and modern histor}', and in (
the political and tho educational were ,
? admirably blended ns to make it emi- c
ently appropriate to the occasion and to (
ie timex. And certainly in tho length s
f bl? speech, the speaker exhibited t
pry rare good taste. Mr. Sheppard is a 1
sung lawyer who at a very early ago *?
? made a decided marie. As a speaker '
ia manner and pure forensic style are C
? fine as to excite immediate admira
on. His effort on this occasion gave
ii versal pleasure. v
Mr. Sheppard's speech being conclu- n
xi, a letter from Judge John E. Bacon g
thc Commits, WM rtftd to tho audi. ?jj
BUCO. Judge Bacon liad been invited to
deliver an address on the occasion, but
on account of an attack of incipient bron
chitis,,.he waa compelled to forego the
honor? and bad already hurried off^o
the healing water?? ol' Virginia. ] .
The'speaking, was- o?nduded ny Col. i
T. G. Bacon making a stirring, appeal-to j
the people Of Johnston's to press forwatd I
in that cause forwhjch thev have airead v
shown themselves so solicitous and so
generous-the groat cause of education. ;
And then the JJand played delightfully,
and the people promenaded, and lemon- j
aded.^and ice-creamed, and sneclated, j
and chatted, and Hil ted, until dinner.
Tho tables, devised in their admirable
arrangement by Mr Charles.Kenney,
were erected under the grove in front of
the residence of Mr. E. A. Miti?s. And 1
befe tho vast multitude ate and drank
until they were actually torpid with
peace .and plenty. Tho dinner was all
that money, energy and hospitality
could make it. And here might be
seen, par excellence, thc gentlemen
and ladies of this particular section-the
heads of tribes-tho Colemans, the Lotta,
the Ward9, the Blands, the Kenneys, tho
Joneses, the Mobloys, th?j^Iimscs, the
Readys and the Bartleys. We do not
mean they could bo seen hore as caters.
No. On tho .contrary, as generous and
thoughtful hoists, watching the wants ol'
their guests, and hastening to lill them.
And happy were thc men and women
who-as wc did-anchored on' to Capt.
Clinton Ward and Iiis lady. Yes, happy
were they; for they saw unstinted gen
erosity, and gentlest courtesy, and too
best bread that was ever baked by earth
ly fire, and grapes, and fiirs, and melons,
and everything that could make one
And now we hurry to the dance-hall
It is the barely finished and still unoc
cupied store house of Mr. J. W. Huiet.
A splendid place-and plenty of room
,but for the unwioldly crowd of pressing
spectators. And here again, Youth is
ou the prow and Pleasure at the helm.
A galop is playing and dozens of young
people are living, bounding, and laun
dering around, as Nature and their dan
cing master have taught them. It is de
lightful. And now it changes to thc
Lancers, and although we canuot see
through a horrid tall mau who stands in
our mouth, the little pauses in thc music
tell us, without seeing, that thc girls are
all courtesying, and the men, with arms
linked together, are galloping madly
round, like savages before a wooden god'
The Lancers-is it not beautiful. And
now an old fashioned cotillion, with
"swing comers" and "lady's chain,"
and every variety of the human animal
rushing violently about, doing their best
to make themselves giddy and tear their
clothes. And still lt is delightful ! /ind
in watching a dance, 'did you evor notice
how small arC man's highest adornments
compared to.woman's? Athis best, in
his dress of ?reatett ceremony, the man
is but a scrimping, pitiful, black-forked
biped, compared to thc indefinite volume,
the many-colored majesty, of befloumced,
belaced, bellowered, boringjeted woman !
But it is six o'clock P. M., and ino .sun
is low, and the Lanciers are wean-, and
vehicles are flying ti) tho four points of
the^compass, and Johnston's-which has
behaved no beautifully, so hospitably, so
peacefully-sigh? for rest- Johnston's
has talked, and walked, and danced,
until it has no legs left. In fact we all
sigh for rest. So wo depart homewards ;
some thinking of the dinner; some, of
the dance; some, Of our.sweethearts ; and
.some-a few-of our latter end.

CHARLOTTE, N. C., July 27,1S73. ?
Mr. Editor: J arrived hero at 21 o'clock
this afternoon,.iii a run of ubom) 7j hours
from Johnston's,-1G2 miles;. The road
is in excellent order, and 1 never enjoyed
a Railroad ride for the distance as ? have
There has latterly been very fine ntins
ali ?he distance, except from near Co
lumbia to Doko. Thc crops 'tare what I
term sorry, with fem exceptions from
Johnston's to Leesville. Fro.ni thence
to Doko, the second or third station this
side of Columbia, we will drop the cur
tain. From Doko.tolhis place, as far as
can be seen from the Road, with tho ex
ceptions of a very few fields, they aro in
the superlative degree most sorry. From
about Doko to near. Chester C. H., the
land seems to bo noarby all worn out, and
but d|small portion in cultivation,-hilly,
stony, no timber for fences, the land
thrown out ami grown up with a scrubby
grow th of pines;* which look that they
will require an ago to get suificiont size
to make?rails. No wonder they wish a
Lchange in thc fence law.
After passing Chester C, H., there is a
great change in the .?'ace of the country.
Until crossing the Catawba river it is
level, has a low, fiat, swampy appear
ance, and but little growth oh land which
has been turned o??\for years.
Entering North Carolina to this place
tho face of the country is more like Fair

Tho Ku Klux Cases.
A delegation oft-prominent citizens
of South Carolina, consisting^of the
Hon; W. D. Porter, General J. B.
Kershaw, and Messrs. R. M. Sims and
S. A. Durham, accompanied by. Assis
tant Secretary Sawyer, of thc treasury,
waited upon Attorney-General Williams,
in thc city of Washington, on tho 24th,
? requesting that all proceedings in refer
ence to the outrages of thc Ku-Klux
Klan be suspended, and urging tho par
don of those now confined in thc Albany
Penitentiary. They represent that as an
organization the Klan has ceased to exist
in this State, and that a lenient policy on
.tho part of the government-will tend lo
restore peace and order.
Attorney-General Williams informed
thom that it was tho polic3' of the gov
ernment to prosecute only aggravated
casos, and.that. orders had already been
given to that effect, and that as soon as
the President was fully satisfied that
peaceable citizens would bj protected in
the' property and lifo, general suspen
sion of the prosecutions would bo desi
rable. He also informed thc delegation
that many Ku-Klux prisoners had been
pardoned, and pardons would be issued
to the others ; the most aggravated cases
being detained until the last.
The delegation was mud] pleased with
tho encouragement given theni by the
attorney-general. They also expected to

A Wooden Railroad.
Ti;? Clarendon Press, of thc 3 St li, con
tains a lengthy account of, thc wooden
railroad or tramway Urbich bas been lately
built, and which brings ?[anning Court
house tu communication with the outside
" Thc South Carolina Central Railroad
had been allowed to drop through thc
hantln ol' the original projectord, and a
eoni>ideiable amount of cutting out and
grading had bet-ti afccoiiipliabcd, when
Messrs. Land & Pritchett, largs turp?n
tine distillers, cluing a very large business;
purchased the right of way xml set about
to constructs road that wn-;.!d take their
products to market. The .^"d from Man
ning to Lane's Turnout, ou' the North
Easlern Railroad, was cleaned out and
graded, and laid with scantling. This
road is fiftften and a half miles long. The
bed is constructed pic-cicely as all other
railroads are. The whole structura above
thc bed is.-jnecisely similar to other rail
roads, except, in place of iron, this road
has wooden stringers, four by five inches,
fastened down lo thc cross ties by long
iroB spijtee passing through bot h stringer
and cross ti.:, imiitm^ the .stringers both
steady and firm. Theie stringers ore five
indies upon their face, and thc trucks or
wheels of the running stock arc live inch
es upon their face. The friction in run
ning being distributed over wide surfaces,
the injury to the ra?3 will be much less.
The flanges to the wheels are two and a
half inches deep, thereby prevea.ting any
probability of running off. A portion of
the road has been in operation five months,
oypr which trains have been running daily,
?f the stringers are smooth. The
rolling .stock on the toad is common, but
quite effectual. Thc engine is worth only
eighteen hundred dollar?, but is sufficient
to carry seven or eight cars, loaded, at the
ra4e of fifteen miles per hour. The pro
prietors are now gone to the North foran
ether engine of greater capacity. The
road ia regarded a success, and answers all
thc purposes of a first class iron road.
The roact has cost about twelve hundred
dollars per mile. By this road fifty thous
and pounds can be sent twice a day.

Thc Fraudulent State Hunds.
[From thc New York Sun.]
The South Carolina hoad case, in which'
New York bondholders are largely inter
ested, is likely to be prutnctcl indefinitely,
as Judge Carpenter, of i\w. Court nf Com
mon Pleas in Columbia, has granie I mi
injunction which prohibits tho couiptroln.
from collecting and the Stain treasurer
from paying out auy moneys i<i? ?vea- :
ol'principal or interest of cerlaiij l ouds,
known as conversion bonds, until (ho fur
ther order of the court. The taxpayers
of South Carolina will be sure I" do all
they can to resist the payment of the di:-,
puted bonds at all unless il caa be shown
that they were legally issued, ile I? mus
in question amount to over sown ??ii?;..n
dollars. The. ground on which their vs 1
idity is disputed is th tit although sonic
thing more than a million dollars nf them
were properly issued in conversion of stock,
the remainder, say six million dollars, are
unauthorized by law and therefore invalid.
To speak more plainly, Lhe taxpayers con
tend that out ot about seven million of
tho bonds six millions were issue;.! in defi
ance of law by carpet-bag thieves, who
stole the money realized upon t' em, and
that therefore the State is not liable for
ihe payment of amy unless it can bo
shown that they were legally issue!, ll
is an important question which has Jo be
iecided, namely, whether innocent foreign
bolders of obligations issued hy thc au
thorities of a State can be made to suffer
for the misconduct ot such authorities, lt
would be hard f?r the innocent holders if
their bonds should eventually prove worth
less, and it will be equally hard for the
jvortaxed people of South Carolina if
they are compelled to pay six millions ol'
dollars on account of debts illegally con
tracted by the thieving carpet bag officials
br their own private benefit, especinl.'v aa
me officials have been imposed upon them
igainst their will. It is a sad business
rom any point of view; and the worst of
t is that it is only a fair example of the
date of things prevailing in ?di ol' thc re

The deceased possessed trails of char
acter which marked him as ?rgentleman
of sterling worth and enduring esteem.
His manly form wa< tho embodiment of
a soul which knew n<> impulso hut that
of honor and integrity. In all his bnsi-'
ness and social relations of life, those
traits were strikingly exemplified. His
promises were ever I sacredly observed
and punctiliously fulfilled Many, very
"many friends and acquaintances were
"attracted to 1 nih ear tb and hbih?'to enj?y
his open hospitality and high social quali
ties. His attachment to friends was
strong, ardent, 'unmistakable And he
chose thom not for their wealth, position,
fame, or notoriety, but simply for their
innate worth, however humble their
position, or however destitute their
means. The lowly peasant, the revered
divine, the distinguished statesman, the
man of science, or of letters, all equally
enjoyed his confidence and esteem, if

Thc hoa'th of the subject of this notice
had been seriously impaired for several
years, and gradually declined to tho close

much given to religious meditation and
prayer. And ho repeatedly told thc

in believing upon tho Lord Jesus Christ,
and that his hope of a blessed immor

Tl?as bas passed from earth to Heaven

May He who "tempers tho wind to the
