HORE INCENDIA SIS.-.
The corn house of Mr. JOSIAH
IIATNSWOBTH, lesiding about six miles
from Sumter, was fired a few nights
ago, early in the night, aud burned to
the ground, with about four hundred
bushels of corn. This dastardly act eft
bim without a bushel of corn on which
to feed his family or stock. Mr.
HAYNSWORTH is one of the most quiet
andamiadle, and worthy citizens of
Sumter County. To have one's whole
fupply of bread-the result of a year of
labor-thus ruthlessly and fiendishly
destroyed, is no ordinary outrage, and
inflicts no ordinary hiss And this
burning of the bread of the coutitry, in
a time ol scarcity and stringency, is an
act which could be instigated only by
the most devilish ins:i?cts.
ft A PN O PEI YT E-T H R POOR HAN'S
MAN UR F.
Our friend, Capt. L. P. LOBING, of
the Hardware store, has been appointed
Agent for this Slate for thc sale ot the
right-county or individual-to manu?
facture this new manure, which is
made entirely from the native elements
found on the land, and which has been
pronounced by many valuable as a fer?
tilizer The idea, as we gather it from
the Circular of the patentees, Messrs.
E. WHITLEY & Co., of Murfreesboro
N. C , is embrac.d io the burning of
pine-s'.raw, leaves and other vegetable
matter under a layer of earth, thus pre?
serving and concentrating the fcttiii
zing matter contained in the smoke,
gases, &c., which are produced by the
process. The use of home material for
the purpose of fertilization is, beyond
doubt, a practical and a profitable idea,
and if this system secures the success?
ful manipulation of these, as ?tis alle?
ged it does, it cannot be other than
Capt. LOBING will be pleased to af
ford til further information that may be
Marks and indications of improve?
ment appear, anon, within our town, as
we stroll through its limits. And these
it is always gratifying to us to record.
Just now our worthy tod publie spir?
ited "City Fathers" are opening up a
new street io the Western part of the
town, which may be put down as a deci?
ded improvement io that locality. It
is to roo from Liberty Street, immedi?
ately East of the Methodist Church, io
a direction Sooth, ootil it intersects
Graham Street. The "tasgled" coodi
tioo of aftaire io the regios through
which this oew street runs, has for
some titee demanded such s eolation,
and we are gratified that it is about to be
CODS HI meted.
A farther improvement, ia this con?
nexion, which hes bees mooted, ead
which we strongly advocate ead orge,
is the nxteasioa of Graham Street, bj
a wide ead comfortable avenue, to the
Cemetery. Taste abe have looked
more elosel* to the peints of tba tom
pass, in that direeti.o. tell as that
Grab am 8troet roos is a drreet Hoe
toward the Cemetery. Thia would sea

When ontje marked and established, let
the avenue be adorned with three Hoes
of our own lovely native oaks ; and
those who are to come after ns, wilt hold
the work and its executors iu admira?
tion and grateful remembrance. What
say onr town authorities, and what say
oar citizens? A day or two devoted bj
the people generally to planting the
trees, would accomplish the work.
GBO. W. WILLIAMS Ac CO*
It affords us special pleasure to di?
rect the attention of the numerous ag?
ricultural readers of the Watchman
I to the advertisements of Messrs. GEO.
W. WILLIAMS & Co., in our issue to?
day. We say special pleasure, because
of the extensive operations of this
house with the farmers and planters
throughout the country, upon a basis at
once liberal and accommodating. Pro?
bably no house in the Southern country
has extended help so liberally and so
generally to the planters of Georgia
and Carolina, and it would be difficult
to compute the advantage which has
accrued to the country from its opera?
tions. Controlling immense capital,
with a patriotic concern for the devel?
opment of the agricultural interests of
tht country, as the one great source
from which at present comes ali our
Southern prosperity, it has sought how
best to foster and encourage and main?
tain that interest by commercial en?
terprise. Risk and heavy loss have
io many instances attended their op?
erations, whilst in a general way, from
the condition of the country, such en?
terprise could but be attended with
more than ordinary hazard and yet,
by judicious management, by superior
financial ability, and a nerve - h ich
capital does not always exhibit, (espe?
cially in the South,) they have stood
manfully up to the situation.
We have before alluded to the neces?
sity for preserving faith in all com?
mercial matters, and especially as
touching the class ' r contracts or obii
g?tions of whit' ? arc now writing.
And we beg to be permittee! to do so
again. Nothing could be more dama?
ging to the country in its crippled con?
ditioo, than to impair or destroy confi?
dence between the merchant or factor
and the planter. Obligations should be
met, though the last dollar of the pro?
ceed* of the crop be absorbed in doing
so; and when the. proceeds are not
sufficient their should be no "holding
back" or attempt to make other dispo?
sal. But let there be a clear and full
showing. Upon the solid doctrine "that
honesty is the best policy." And
so it will prove.
To rcturu to our notice, it will be
seen th?t Messrs. GEO. W. WILLIAMS ,
& Co., have reduced the price of the
Carolina Fertilizer, a justly celebrated
manure, to $50 per ton cash, and $55
on time, which is $10 per ton less than
hist year. Notwithstanding the adverse
seasons, this manure has met with al?
most unrivalled success. They also ;
offer the Guanape Peruvian Guano, ;
Jircct from the islands, and guaran?
teed pure and good
Planters would do well to give spe?
cial attention to their notice, in regard
to ternis. And we feel it to be worthy
of remark that they are willing to con?
tinue td assist those with whom past ,
transactions have been satisfactory. 1

THE WAT TO HAKE CORN.
Mr. W. A. JAMES, residiog near
Bishopville, gathered, last year, from a
twelve acre field, an aggregate of six
hundred and twelve bushels of corn, or
fifty-one bushels to the acre. This was
in addition to a "wilderness" of peas
(estimated by him at six bushels to the
acre) from which eighteen fine porkers
were prepared for the smoke-house, and
bis milch cows streamed their rich
currents of milk, to say nothing of the
unusually heavy crop of fodder gathered.
The land upon which this corn, &c,
waa made, was such as, it is estimated
by Mr. JAMES, would have yielded
about thirteen bushels to the aere, with?
out fertilization. The fertilizers ap?
plied were forty bushels of cotton seed
and two hundred and eighty pounds of
Peruvian Guano to the aere. The land
was well broken and the masure all
put down two or three weeks previous
to planting The cora was planted
about the 10th of March, io rows five
feet 2f inches apart, with a distance of
twenty-one inches on th? row,aod culti?
vated io bis usual way.

Spreed the Troth.
Some medical mea insist that it is undignified
to advertise a remedy, however valuable it may
be. Queer reasoning this. It is like saving that
an article which the world needs should be bid in
s corner-that benefits and blessings may be too
widely diffused-that the means of protecting and
restoring health should be a close monopoly, and
not accessible to all. The argument is bad. It
is worse than that; it ia inhuman. Suppose
Uostettr's Stomach Bitters-an absolute specific
for dyspepsia, billioasness and nervous debility
-had never been known beyond the repertoire
of the faculty, what would have been the conse?
quence? Instead of curing and invigorating
millions, the good effects of the preparation
would have been confined to a comparative few.
There ls the highest authority for saying that
light should not be bid under a babel; that
whatever is excellent should be placed as a city
or. a bill, where all men eaa take cognisance of
it It is apon this principle that the Bitters
br.ve been advertised ia every newspaper of eny
prominence in the western hemisphere, and that
the spontaneous testimonials in its favor have
been translated into all written languages.
Thousands enjoy perfect health to-day who
would be languishing on beds of sickness if the
newspspers bad not spread tba truth with regard
to this unequaled invigorant and corrective far
and wide. S appose profit bas been reaped from
this publicity. Is that any argument against
it? If the public health bas been protected; If
iives hare been saved; if the feeble have been
strengthened and the tick restored, great faed
has been aeeomplisbed ; and who so mean as to
grudge to exertions tb os directed their fair re?

A MYSTERY SOLVED,
I that ms tie path was treading
When th? ?an hi? ny? WM shedding
Beaming, gleaming, fairly streaming
Through the trees.
Atd I watched the streamlet glistening,
As entranced I there was listening
To the malting, merry music
Oa the breeze.
When beneath a true reclining,
Where no ray cf sae wu shining
Lo, I saw a fellow being
On the ground.
Though BO otter features shi'ted,
Quickly now his eyes uplifted,
Upward lifted, as ha wildly
"(toed friend,* said I, approaching,
"Do not charge me with encroaching
Are yon waiting for some messenger
Of newt ?*
Bat no ether word he uttered,
And no other sentence mattered,
Sara "you'll fiad there's none like Caldwell's
Boots ead Shoes."
"That's a strange expression, surely,"
Said I, iookin?dowa demurely.
"Ii trust, good s>r, 'hat yon the question
Bat he only looked the prouder,
As he spoke th? word? th? louder,
"There's always perfect comfort ia Caldwell's
Boots and Shoes."
"Why, Mesa me, maa," I sheeted,
As his sanity I doubted,
Tis sorely naught to me what people's goods
Bat he only ?tied the higher,
With eothaiastie fire,
.You'll sar* your cash by wea ringj Caldwell's
Boots and Shoes."
So I left bim there reclining,
Where BO ray of ran was shining
Aad frequently I wondered at the words the man
Thinking surely 'twas i mystery,
Aad that some bidden history
Wee wearing round myaelf and Caldwell's
