Dwelling House Darned.
On Sunday night last a dwelling house
belonging to Mr. J. W. Bartley, one mile
North ol Johnston, was destroyed by fire
The hou;e was built by Mr. Bartley and
formerly occupied by him, but more re
cently occupied by School Commissioner
G. W Latt. The house had been unoc
cupied for two or three days-a vacancy
incident to one tenant moving out and
another moving in-and there can scarce
ly be any other theory for the origin of
the fire than that of incendiarism. Mr.
Bartley, as will be seen by reference to
our advertising columns, very promptly
offers a re wara for tbe apprehension ot the
guilty party or parties. The house was

Oar YOUD? Friend in Arkansas.
Still Says : .* Come."
CABOT, ARKANSAS, Dec. 12, '84.
MESSRS. EDITORS : I noticed in last
week's ADVERTISER, in your editorial
concerning Arkansas, that " it were
infinitely wiser in the young men to
stay where they were-and work
hard"-and I ask yon the question
hr whom must they work? Must they
stay in Carolina and work for those
who have homes, and never be able
to get a home of their own ? No, I
think not; it is infinitely wiser for
them to come West, where they can
get land at a mere song (and land
that is far superior to that of Caroli
na) and where it can be bought with
out ready cash-with plenty of time
to pay for it. Why, Messrs. Editors,
South Carolina is getting like old Ire
land ; lew own land, and thoee lew
own it all; and I think it wise in
any young man to leave, who bae no
borne in Carolina, when be can have
the many advantages the West gives
to those Beeking homes. I can say to
the young men of Carolina, who have
but a Bjaall sum, if they come here
they C3n be the happy owners of a
little home in a little while. I speak
from my own experience. I have
lived in South Carolina, " and worked
hard" and the best portion of my life
has been wasted trying lo get a start.
Now I am in the Weet, and my chief
i egret is that I d;d not come sooner.
I eeo the many advantages here I d;d
am glad M
Le poor bofP^Jr^StigeEeld. While
love old Edgefield, as much as any
itate loving citiz-n ought, yet I know
t is to the interest of all of her poor
ons to come West, that they may be
elf sustaining, and lay up a little for
. rainy day. If they Btay in Carolina,
nd could get a paying position,
vhen they have saved money enough
o buy a little home, they could be
ailed no longer young. There is the
rouble. Life is short, and -in order
o get a start, so they can enjoy it,
hey will have to come West.

And the young should weave it well."
