Anthony's picture takers ought to
have been at Sumter on Saturday
morning last. The prospect for Sou'h
ern Winter Scenes was unusua Hy fine.
The day and night previous a gtaduaily
fret ziti?? rain bad clothed thc trees in a
heavy coat of ice. Saturday morning
witnessed an unclouded sun, which
?emed to shine with more than usual
splendor, impirtM'g a glittering, crys

truly ?mud and sublime.
We learned with regret,aud announce
with sympathy, the barning, on Friday
aiterooon last, of the large and comfort?

The origin of thc fire was accidental -
resulting from some defect in one ol
thc chimneys-and when discovered
had made such prioress that it could
not be arrested. M oct of tho furniture,
we learn, was rescued from thc flames.

ger train due at Sumter at G o'clock,
mel so accident about five miles beyond
Florence, b) which the coach and con?
ductor's car were over:urned. Two or
three of the passengers, we learn, were
severely injured On thc train, Mr
J. D CRAIG, of Sumter, returning home
from a business visit to Wilmington,
was slightly injured.
On Tuesday previous a train on
the North Eastern Hoad also met with
an accident, we learn, by which Mr. li.
M. MACK, engineer, was severely in?
jured, a fireman suffered thc breaking
ofa leg, and a ne^'ro man killed. We?
are pleased to leam that Mr. MACK is
recovering from his injuries.
Our good, and reliable, friend, J. N.

advantages of his "Soluble Pacific Gua?

ba? been reduced, an?] brought down to
a figure, which, it is now believed, will
render their applicat ion profitable, under
ordinary circumstances of care Mr.
ROBSON has character enough not to
recommend that which does not com?
mend itself to his discerning judgment,
bis successful business having built
upon tie practice of honest representa?
tions, and we therefore recommend his
fertilizers to our friends with confidence.
Tonil Stock-The Proposed Hall, dee.
Briefly, in oar last issne, we gave
support to the tnovemeui inaugurated by
our Town Council, looking to the erec?
tion ol a Town tla.ll, Market,&c, on the
public lot fronting the Court House.
More careful examination of the mat
.tor has brought us io more decided
support of thu project.
The plan proposed is simply this :
To issue eight per cent Town Stock
to thc atnouut of Thirty five Hundred
or Four Thousand Dollars, the proceeds
to be applied to the purpose indicated
Wc believe that ,ihis should long
since have been done. No live or
progressive municipal corporation io the
bounds of the country has ever hesitated
to use its credit for its own advantage
and improvei ient. Like the use of in?
dividual credit, it should always, of
course, be attended with prudence and
judgment, the hazard ol'fui.ure or loss
being well guarder. But nothing is
more simple or coro m n than that now
proposed by our Municipal body; and
wc venture to say that scarcely a town
of similar size and importance can be
found which has no bonded debt.
That bonds should be issued for cur?
rent expenses, would no doubt be impol?
itic, since for this purpose the town
treasury should bc s'!f-sus:ainiog ; but
where it is proposed to invest thc credit
of the town, under ample chartered
authority and well guarded legal re?
strictions, in tangible, and necessary and
profitable improvements, ii the manage?
ment be in prudent aan?s, ther? can be
ucither d^ubt or dar ger attending.
Ir. is alleged, and we belie re upon
well grounded calculation, that the
rental income from the building pro
p .-...il: will pay ??bout double thc interest j
of the bonds involved, li'this be so, so j
lar fruin increasing taxation, the bal?
ance might be applied to reducing the
Weare pleased t) ;:arn that the
present Council has cancelled thc float
1 tn? debt of the town to the amount of
S1,S?31 -."> and that the work of liqui
! dation i< still goiniron, The credit of
j the towt; has certainly improved This
? aiso argues favorably for thc enterprise
contemplated, and points to tit? present
as the auspicious period for securing
the long needed itu; rarement*
Tn the bond-hoider thc investment
must bo perfectly secure, since under
! the charter no initiier bonds can be
j issued, and these arc allowed by it ouly
fur i ?ie specific purpose involved Besides
this, there ran be nt r:n_erof repudia

I Municipalities hold position in the
front rank. Tito Sta ' Constitution
grants to the Legislature the right to
enarl laws anthorizi :g the Municipal!

j wi ii perfect confidence. This step, too,
i we learn, h ts no! b^en undertaken
