OFFICIAL CONTRADICTION OF A CANABD_
The Washington papers publish the following
official telegram concerning a statement that
recently appeared in the Courier:
CHARLESTON, June 17,1868.
Tb Gen. JJ. & Grant, Commanding United
One of the CUT/ morning papers contains a
sensational paragraph in relation to outragea
in Kershaw County, in this State. Colonel
Edie, in reply to an inquiry from me, has just
telegraphed from Camden that it has no foun?
dation whatever. E. B. S. CANBY,
THE UNDERWRITERS' AOENCT some months
since established a protective company, which
waa to be controlled by the city detectives.
The latter functionaries have had charge of a
cart and tarpaulins, but the fire of Saturday
night was the first occasion that called for the
use of the tarpaulins. It was thought un?
necessary to remove the stock of Messrs,
Campbell, Knox i Co., ont 'the goods were
taken from the shelves and piled upon the
counters, the tarpaulins being then, thrown
over them. Though the water waa thrown into
the upper stories and through the windows, the
tarpaulins preserved the goods from any loss
by fire or water and they can be replaced with?
out any damage.
I THE SHIP MOKTOOMERT.- Tho latest informa?
tion from this ship reports matters as progres?
sing favorably. The deck load had all been
taken off, and on Friday night the steam pump
had been put to work and bad relieved the
ship of a large part of the water; but some ad?
ditional fixtures were necessary in order to
get ont .the water io tbe lower part of the ves?
sel. Should proper arrangements to effect ti?is
result be achieved, it is hoped that she will
lighten up sufficiently te cross Charleston Bar.
The water when pumped out does not appear
to return rapidly, and in consequence il is
thought that her seams and buts are not badly
strained. The parties at present in charge are
ruing their beet effort., to place the ship in this
harbor at the earliest moment.
MUNICIPAL CHANGES AT COLUMBIA.-General
Canby, by special order Ni. 140, has made
changes in the City Government of Columbia
very similar in character to those recently ef?
fected in Charleston. The Mayor and Alder?
men T. W. Radcliffe, W. P. Geiger, W; T. Wal?
ter, A. M. Hunt, John Fisher and A. B. Taylor
have been removed.' Aldermen John Alexan?
der, R. Wearn, John. McKenzie, and D. P. Mc?
Donald, of the old board, have been ref ai ned,
together with Aldermen C P. Bernsen and F.
W. Wing; two of General Canby'a Domin?es.
And the following ne- appointments have been
made : Dr. T. J. Bawls-, Dr. ?. W. Green, W.
E. Greenfield, and Josaph Taylor (colored). C.
M. Wilder (colored), Wm. Simons (colored).
The new Mayor is Brevet Colonel Francis L.
Guenther, Captain Fifth Artillery. Tbe Phoe?
nix, in its comment * upon these changes, re?
marks: "Tbe gentlemen removed-Major Theo.
Stark, Mayor, and Aldermen Radcliffe, Geiger,
Walter, Fisher, Hunt and Taylor-have tbe
best wishes of those who elected them to ?f?
rico, and whose interests, as well as the toter*
esta of all in the comm unity, they have'sought
to promote. Honor attends them as they leave
the Council chamber of this city.".
THE VEGETABLE TRADE.-Our steamships
continue to transport to Northern ports heavy
and valuable. shipmen ts of the vegetables of
the j season, the- product of our imrnediate
neighborhood. This business opens a large
field for the enterprising agriculturalist, and,
with the extensive and. increasing theil i ties
which such articles will have in their speedy
transportation by ?steam: to-so the great cen?
tres pf population north of us, there is good
reason why the entire countrv around should
become a splendid garden spot, where vege?
tables and fruits of all kinds may be grown for
sale in* the great Northern cities. With 1
thorough drainage and high tillage the health of t
the country would vastly improve, and eon- i
si dering the largo growth of population at the i
North, the time can bo hardly distant when a I
good farmer possessing a moderate sized piece t
of bind in this region 1 wfll have a handsome c
competence.-. Tho steamship Charleston, for s
New York, which left on Saturday, took abouj r
four thousand packages of vegetables, and the t
steamship Falcon, for Baltimore, carried about w
one thousand.. This last steamer was loaded b
to the depth of sixteen fdet, Quite a heavy I
draught for a coasting steamer. 1 o

Scones and Incidents.
Among ail the leanly sports which we have
copied from the Mother Co nntry not one bas
become moro quickly naturalized and nation?
alized tban that of yachting. Fifty years BRO
the art-for such it ia-was, in America, com?
paratively uuknown. Indeed, not until within
the last two decades havo our poople seemed
to learn and appreciate the rare oujoyment
which, in England especially, it has boen made
to contribute to that large class of gentlemen
wbose wealth and leisure permit them to in?
dulge, to the full, their taste in this exciting
pastime. We have not been slow, however, to
avail oursels of the example, and, to-day, there
aro few lakes or streams, or harbors in the [
United States, on tho borders of which men of J
culture and travel reside, that on a Bummer's
day may not be soen dotted with its squadron
of graceful yachts.
The history of yachting may be traced back
two or three hundred years, to a period when
only kings J-nd queens, and the money lords
of the world, could afford tho luxury of a white,
winged vehicle for transit from place to
place, across the water. Later, we can read
of the excursions of intrepid Englishmen, like
Lord Dufferin and others, around the world
among the iceberg? of the Arctic regions,
and a'ong the coast of Africa. The old records
tell us too of ** long, low, black craft," which
after serving the purposes of pleasure, have
h"isted to the peak the deaths-head and cross?
bones of some bold buocaneer, and become
the " terror of the malu ;" and many in our j
own day and generation remember how these |
same "messengers of the wind" have defied
the cruisers of the world, as they flitted here
and there loaded down with cargoes of ela vos
bound for a markot.
The first pleasure yacht par excellence in
America was built in either Stonington or New
London, Connecticut. Others quickly followed,
and, before tho lapse of many years, a yacht
club was organized in the City of New York,
the commodore of which, for a long period,
was the Hon. John C. Stevens, of Hoboken.
Under bis administration the.interest, inspired
by early yachting exploits, assumed the shape
of a system. Large Bums of money were ex?
pended in experiments for tho purpose of se
oaring tho best models. Shipbuilders like
Donald Kay, of Boston, Webb, of Now York,
and others began to participate, in tho
increasing competition among Ibo yachts?
men, and finally two among a multi?
tude of boats were produced whose
axploits placed them in the van of the yacht
Beet of the world. The-o wero the Maria and
America. The latter, accepting a challenge
from (he Yacht Club of England, crossed the
Atlantic and, in a race around the Isle of Wight,
carried off the prize. To that event, moro
?han any other cause, is due the extraordinary
nitrest now manifested thronghont the United
State? in the art aquatic; and from that time
until the present the marine architect has had
bis ingenuity taxed to the utmost to supply j
the craving for a faet boat1 The influence of
this ambitious go-ahoad-itivenesa, so peculiar
to the American people, has'been observable
for years. Our row-boa ts are the fastest in
the world;, our clipper ships make trips
around the globe at an'average speed faster i
than our river, steamboats can sail; our [ i
steamships are the perfection of floating
palaces, and if they do not bridge the Atlantio
in ten days, they are deemed slow and of no
account. On land as well as sea, this spirit of |
competition largely enters into the national
character, and whether it be in tho matter of
i tat baby or a mee horse, somebody is sura to
"bet his pile" ou owning the biggest* and the
. The racing intrust provoked in the annals of
American yachting bas contributed not a little
to create this species of individuality; and
hence when art event occurs like that which 1
took place Saturday in Charleston harbor, it
M a sign of the times Indicative of the progress
we are making, and worthy of the most gene- |
rous encouragement. But to the race,

enough to m uko the contrast agreeable and
prevent the roasting process; while the wind- | i
that' for which .ail prayers had been offered- [
was aa favorable as if it had been chartered from
the gods expressly for this occasion. It blew
freshly from the south wost. Before one o'clock

With ita usual regard for tho public accommo

its day's schedule to suit the c vont and locali- <

spectacle. On the water the scene was most y
animating. Everything that floated appeared J

patched and ragged canvas that has done ser?
vice for a quarter of a century; fancy little boats 11
with sails not much larger than a pocket band- | i
kerchief-coasting schooners and pilot boats
-rowboats, and pleasure boats of every de- i
scriptum-tugs and steamers-all filled with t
spectators, a goodly phare ot whom were la- 1
lies. Many of the vessels were chartered by
private parties. The Emilie and Fannie weic i
both thrown open to the public, and, for tho I
moderate sum of one dollar, carried all who dc- i
sired to accompany tho race. Tho Post Band i

THE YACHTS. (
Five minutes to 1 o'oloekl Every eyo is 1

Jly to the second thu sharp crack of a gr n
inga out its warxlng note to "make ready."
Lbreast of .the Battery and within a short pis- 1
01 shot of the Southern wharf are the four i
?ompcting yachts, chafing at their buoys like t
o many hounds held in leash and eager for the <
un. The bnoys are nly forty feet apart, and I

Fivo minutes never rolled so slowly by be?
fore, but at last the signal gun sounds
- THE STABT.
The mainsails are already set, and ere the
coho of the cannon has rolled across the wat?
ers the jibs, too, have flown to their places;
they take the breeze; the boats veer around;
the cables ara slipped, and the fonr beautiful
crafts, gracefully as swans, glide from their
I moorings apon the great adventure of the .day.
The little Maggie shoots ahead as if pro?
pelled by the Naiads down below; then follow
the stately Eleanor, the Unknown, and the
witch-like Elia Anna. Now up go gaff topsails
and flying Jibs. All are fairly under weigh,
and the water boils oat from the bows in fur?
rows of milk-white foam.
The wind giv?s the sturdy yachtsmen all
they can attend to, but there is a ballast of |
sand bags on board, and these are piled up on
the windward side wherever they can find a foot?
hold. Besides its crew of six or eight working
men-all cool, practiced sailors-each boat
carries a gentleman who, in tho capacity of j
judge, represents another yacht.
On the Eleanor is W. A. Courtonay, Esq.,
representing tho Ella Anna. On the Ella Anna
is Captain John Sly, representing the Eleanor.
On the Unknown is R. S. Bruns, Esq., repre?
senting the Maggie Mitchell, and on the
Maggie Mitchell, representing.the Unknown, is
Dr. W. H. Tarrant.
A glance through a field glass shows that all
on board are stripped to their work. There is
no cl thing on their persons likely to impede a
long swim, in case of a capsize or a casualty
of a moro dangerous nature, and all evident?
ly anticipate what Dr. Mantalini calls "a
deran'd damp, moist uncomfortable time."
The Emilie and Fannie with their freights of j
spectators shoot out from the docks, tho band
strikes up "Dixie," the crowd cheer, and in five
minutes the fleet of steamers a 3d sail boats
are moving gaily to the sea, in full chase of
the fairy-like ot aft that are darting on their
Leaving the exhilarating sport for a mo?
ment, we reproduce for the information of the
general reader a description of the several
yachts and the terms of the race:
The Ella Anna was built by Messrs. J. G. &
D. C. Marsh, of Charleston, and was only
launched a few weeks ago. This is, therefore,
her fir-I trial of speed in a race. She was
sailed by Captain Edward Morse.
The Eleanor was built by the Jones Brothers,
also of Charleston, in 1867, and ran against
the Maggie Mitchell, in the fall of that year,
for a purse of $1000. The race was drawn, as
the proper allowance of time to be made the
Maggie Mitchell could not be determined. She
was sailed by Captain Thomas Yoong, her
owner, assiste i by Captain Sam. Bel), one
oar Charleston pilota.
The Maggie Mitchell is a Connecticut built
boat, and owned by Messrs Black and Johns
son. She bas achieved tho reputation of being
one of the fastest boats in our harbor of her
size, especially in each a breeze as prevailed
Saturday. Tho Maggie was sailed Saturday
by Capt. Thomas Daniels.
The Unknown is also one of the contribu?
tions of the Jones Brothers to the handsome
yacht marine of Charleston, and was built
about tho same time as the Ella Anna. She is
very fast, and is destined yet to make her
mark. She was sailed by Captain Hugh E.
Tho tonnage and dimensions of the four
yachts are as follows:
FROM POET RIPLEY TO FORT SUMTER.
We "return to our muttons." The race be?
tween the two points above-named seems al?
ready decided. The Eleanor has surged clean
ihead, so that it looks almost impossible for
tho Ella Ann a to overtake her, while the Maggie
Mitchell shows her heels in tho most unmaid
?nly manner to the coy little Unknown. Betting
DH the Eleauor is very decided, and greenbacks
ind juleps change bands industriously on the
steamers. "Fifty to forty that the Eleanor
IYLU8," savB a voice. "Put up your money," is
tho response, and somebody loses without
k D owing it. The Unka own also has her friends
unong the "lookers on in Vienna," but the
maggie's backers take everything that is offer
3d, and show a "stiff upper Up."
The scone at this time is remarkably fine.
Before us looms np Fort Sumter, grand even in
its ruins, ita battle-scarred face and rugged
ratline calling rrp a host of memories which
remind some on board of other and happier
lays. Behind is the home we have just left
-its spires growing more needle-like as they
recode from view, and its contour every mo?
ment becoming more beautiful in a perspec?
tive, whose line of beauty is the carve of the
two rivers which lovingly fold the old "City by
?he Sea" in a fond embrace.
Near; / to us, and resting like an opal in an
emerald setting, is Castle Pinckney, the white
martere and green carpeting of the earth?
works, io contrast with sea and sky,
naking a picture worthy of the best effort of'l
he artist. The flags ore flying, and the wharf [
md parapet are lined with soldiers enjoy
ng this momentary relief from the monotony
)f garrison life. Nearer to us is Fort Ripley,
lismantlod, out of shape, going to decay, and
ret picturesque in ruins. The forts, the croft
Utting around us Uko so many sea gulls, the
rachts just off our bow, all encircled with the
usurious verdure, which on both sides of tho
?arbor descends Uko a fringe to the waters
>dgo, make a scene of beauty which only the
ian himself, through the lenses of the came
?a, could faithfully portray.
Nearing Fort Sumter there is a perceptible
' tin by the Ella Anna on hor antagonist, and
he sailing powers of I he lit Mn craft ns she
lugs the wind are brought out in bold rolief.
The wind now freshens to a degree which
nakea it necessary toshorten sail, and on both
x>ats gaff topsails and flying jibs are sent
1 > wn. Tho Maggie still keeps her place in
iront of the Unknown, but there has also been
i perceptible closing up in the gap between
?.ROM CUMMINGS POINT BUOY TO WEEHAWKEN
The yachts rounded (he Cummings' Point
Buoy to the northward, so closo that it could
lave boca touched with a walking cane,' or
n the language on board, "so that yon could
:onnt the fiddlers creeping on it." They then
lauled up close on the wind, and with the ex?
ception of the Unknown changed their course
o tho southward. The wind still blowing
rom the southwest, and meeting the flood
ide created hero a sharp sea, which sometimes
vashed from stem to stern. The gunwales
vere often two feet under water ; tho men on
ward baled constantly ; the spray flew right
md left, but tho little craft fairly flew through
he waves. It was here that the most conspicu
)us slri.ll was shown in handling all of
he yachts. On going about on the
ack for the light ship, their position
voa aa follows : The Ella Anna was several
lundred yards to windward of the Eleanor, and
ho Maggie Mitchell was noarly on a line with
mt behind the Eleanor. The Unknown wae
fi till on a coarse to the leeward of the bj
ship. Approaching the latter point it
found that a large flat, employed in the op?
tiona of the sanken wreok, had drifted to
extent of its cable, BO that its western end '
close npon the bows of the lightship and
more than two. boats' length to the sou tb w
of it. To overcome this dilemma without 1
of time made the situation critical in the
tremo. It was, apparently, the turning pc
of the race, and it required an extraordin
command of nerve, skill and judgment to cc
pass the difficulty. The Ella Anna, bavi
stood well over towards the shore, had e vide
ly determined to avoid all risk of accident
going around the lightship, wreck, flat b
and all, and made her tack with plenty of i
room. The Eleanor, not having so cc
trolling a position to windward, made
virlne of necessity, and pushed bol
ly for the narrow gap between the ligl
ship and the flat. For even one boat
attempt such a feat would, under other c
camstance8, have been deemed sheer recklei
ness, but the complication which auddei
followed made the situation doubly dangeroi
And one of great peril It proved, howovi

chase, and was a long distance in the rear, u
der tho impel na of some auspicious flaw, fa
ly leaped over the intervening distance, ai
plunged headlong neck and neck with tl
Eleanor into the narrow pasa. The flood til
waa dashing through it with the velocity of
mill race, and there were not three feet
spare on either side. The excitement was nc
intenso, for life itself was in the stake,
single false movement, a tremor of a ner
would have precipitated a catastrophe

"We can't give an inch," was the reply, "bi
we won't touch you." In a moment more a
was clear. The Ella Anna now came rushin
down (showing how close had been the calci
lation of Captain Morse in going his course
making a clean sweep of all, and accomplis!
ing his turn only half a length behind the tin
yacht. The Unknown followed, but had efrain
ed her mast to such a degree that it require
the most careful nursing, and hence took a pc
sition in the rear.
The course from the lightship to the Gum
mince' Point buoy was direct and unbroken
the Eleauor leadin? by a length or two, an<
the Maggie Mitchell nearly abeam of the Ell
Anns. Rounding the buoy and hauling on th
wind, the yachts now made for the White Pom
buoy, rounding which the Ella Anna, by reasoi
of having crept well to windward, took the lead
The stretch was now for Remley's Point, bu
tbe wind bad Blackened, although it had no
changed its quarter, and hence the interest at
taobing to the speed of the yachts was some
what lessened, especially among those on (bi
steamers, who had seen them under the bes
On shore, however, the scene waa different

rang-ont as the yachts, with every stitch ol
canvas set-mainsails, square-sails, jibs, gan

regular procession, and dotting the water Like
a great convoy of white-winged birds, wa?
Bvery species of craft of which Charleston eau
boast ; and the spectacle at this juncture was
one.long to be remembered.
The Ella Anna kept in the van to the buoy
off Remley's Point, where, on turning, the
Eleanor again modo a dash; but the race was
now against wind and tide, and it was evident
at tho outset that the Ella was destined to
bear away tho practical honors of the day.
Hugging the Mount Pleasant shore to, keep ont
of the tide, making short and frequent tacks,
rapidly she crept away from her competitor,
until, thirty two minutes past four, she made
tho stake boat off the Southern wharf, and
The Maggie Mitchell came in a very few min?
utes afterwards, the Eleanor and Unknown
both being distanced. It is proper to state,
however, that the former Dot only lost a gaff
topsail by reason of its being fouled, but ran
aground and so remained for two minutes and.
ben seconds, while the latter lost her mast.
The following account of the race, from a
standpoint diff?rent from that from which the
above description was written, will convey an
admirable idea in brief of the chief features of
Ibis mest interesting event, together, with the
decision rendered by Hon. P. C. Gaillard, the
As the moment for starting approached tho
excitement became quietly intense. At five
minutes before one, tbe warning gan was fired,
and the yachts with their buoys woll aft lay
ready for the start. At one precisely the start?
ing gun was fired, and before the wreaths of
smoke bad circled away from the revenue cut?
ter the yachts wera off. The start was an ex?
cellent one. In a moment the jibs were eel,
and the four cor testants drew away from I ho
land. The al aggie was the first to be fairly
ander weigh, anti was followed by tho Eleanor,
Clla Anna and Unknown. But tbe Eleanor
forged rapidly ahead, and was well in front of
ber competitors ou passing the cutter. The
Eleanor, going before the wind, iocroaaed lier
advantage, being followed by tho Maggie, Un?
known ?nd Ella Anna. Off Fort Ripley tho
arder and position were about tho samo. Tho
Eleanor was in front, and the throe other boals
were in a clump together, the Maggie and Un?
known bein:: ahead of tho Ella Ania. The
Eloanor was now to leeward of the Ella Anna,
which boat crept up, and passed tho small
yachts with apparent ease. While running
iowii the shoal off Fort Sumter the Eleanor
bad still tho lead. The Ella Anna was near tho
Eleanor, and the Maggie and Un ko wu wore
running near each other some distance astern.
?Vben tho yachts were brought np, the supe?
rior sailing qualifies of the Ella Anna on a
wind wero apparent. Thia boat kept her posi?
tion very handsomely and workod steadily to
windward of the Eleanor, which was now fall?
ing off to leeward. The boats did not change
their order for a considerable timo, but the
[Jhknown wan kept before tho wind when tho
others tacked to the soutli'urd, and seemed to
liavo got into rough water. Rounding tho
light ship, tho Maggie was ahead, followed
closely by Un Eleanor and Ella Anna. Tho
Unknown WAS now far astern and was counted
out of the race, which it was known would bo
won on the Cooper River in beating down to
tho winning point. When the yachts passed
the wharf on their way to Remley's Point, the
Ella Anna had worked np io tito first place,
hugged tight by the Eloanor and Maggie. Thc
two larger yachts were sailing abreast of each
other, bul (bc Elennor dexterously turned the
buoy in front of the Ella Anua. Ou the return
trip the Eleanor came soon enough to grief.
Ber topsail fouled, a man was sent aloft to cut
it loose, and the canvass was soon driftirjg with
the tide. Then she touched bottom, and every
moment was left farther behind by the Ella
Anna, which was being splendidly sailed. The
Unknown was coming down handsomely
enough when her mast was carried away. It
bad sprung on the run down, and careful hand?
ling alone saved it so long. It was now nearly
half-past four o'clock, and there would be no
race unloss the winner came in before five.
Only about half an hour, and a long stretch
yet to make. But the Ella Anna seemed to
know what was wanted of her. 8he fairly flew
through the water, and at four forty P. M.,
passed the winning point and was saluted as
the winner of the most exciting yacht race ever
Been in Charleston.
The following is the official award of the
Hon. P. C. Gaillard, the umpiro :
CHARLESTON, S. C., Jane 20,1868.-As um?
pire in the yacht race of .his day, I would res?
pectfully report as follows :
At one o'clock, P. SI., punctually, the yacths
The Ella Anna passed within the prescribed
lines at 4 S2.5.
The Maggie Mitchell passed within the pre?
scribed lines at 4 37.25.
The Eleanor did not come up to the pre?
scribed line until after five o'clock owing to her
nmnmg aground and injnring her centre
The Unknown having boon dismasted, did
not come within the prescribed line at all.
Tho purse of one thousand dollars is, there?
fore, awardod to tho yacht Ella Anna.*
The purse of two hundred dollars ia awarded j
to the Maggie Mitchell, the judges appointed j
by the owners of the several yachts having
reported that all the conditions of agree?
ment had been complied with.
P. C. GAILLARD, Umpire.
To Captain F. W. DAWSON.
THE CHARLESTON AND WHAT IS IT.
Not among the least attractive features of j
the day was a race that bad been made up be?
tween the owners of the Charleston and What
is It-two "cat boats" so called, but really
handsomo Bailors, for a purse of-well to
be frank,-a basket of champagne
The boats started from the same place ns the
yachts, at one o'clock and thirty-four minutes,
the route being around Fort Ripley, thence
around the buoy at Romley's Point, at the
mouth of Wando River, and thence to the
winning point off 8outbern Wharf. The
Charleston allowed the What is It four
minutes time. Both boat? had been
thoroughly overhauled and started out
in fine stylo, the Charleston being sailed
secundum artcm by Captain Sam. Bringlow
sometimes called "Brignoh"-one of the best
of our Southern pilots, and the W. I. I. by
Captain Cook. The Charleston is a New York
boat, built in 1867 by Ingersoll <fc Co., and was
entered by her owner, Mr. T. D. Clancy. The
What Is It was built in Beaufort, and is owned
and was entered by Captain Thomas Young.
There were no associate judges in these
boats, but both went at the top of their speed
and made the most of their timo and opportu?
nity. It was evident from the start, however,
that the "What Is It," like most fat mon, was
too bulky to accomplish muob by the side of |
her more lively antagonist. The surprise is
that a boat so nearly round should have done
The Charleston made the trip in three hours
eighteen minutes, and the "What Is It" came
in one bonr behind.
It was a decidedly nice little affair, full of
fun to both winnora and losers, and our regret
is that the demands of the larger boats pre?
vented us from the enjoyment of the good
things incident to the event. Weean only add
like John Gilpin, "When next a race occurs,
may we be there to seo."
LT closing this sketch it should bo remarked
that too much credit cannot be bestowed upon
the several gentlemen by whom the day's
sports were inaugurated and managed. To
Messrs. Wm. A. Courtenay and John Sly for
arranging the buoys, to Hon. P. C. Gaillard,
the umpire, and all others identified with the
affair, praise is due for the handsome manner
in which rational enjoyment was secured to at
least ton thousand people. The captains of all
the boats aro entitled likewise to their award
for the skill they displayed, and thc owners
should feel happy that their publie spirit is ap?
preciated by a multitude. Somebody haS to
be beaten, however, and oar word of sympathy
to the unfortunate is. "Better luck nezt time." !

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE.-About ll o'olock on Sat?
urday night tho alarm of fire was sounded,
but from some unexplained cause tho alar?i
bell rang both Wards 3 and 4. This, however,
retarded the engines but a few minutes, abd
they were soon upon the ground and at work.
Tho Ore originated in the centre of Messrs,
Holmes & Calder's paint and oil store, and the
draft caused by the nan ow passage carried thia
flames above tho neighboring buildings anil
caught the adjoining store, occupied by Mr.
W. L. Webb as a wholesale crockery establish?
ment. The lire was first communicated to the
upper story and thence spread through the en?
tire building. The front and loxjr story of
Holmes & Calder's store was completely des?
troyed, and the rear was only saved by the fall?
ing of the roof, the tin of which covered and
protected the stock in tho back part of the
store. For some time the flames raged
fiercely, and the inflammable material which
comprised the stock of a paint store lent such
fuol to the fire, that not only the two build?
ings mentioned, bnt others in the neighbor?
hood were threatened with destruction. Mean?
time the streams from the different engines
were incessantly poured upon Ute burning
building with visible good effect. The houses
of Edwin Bates & Co., Strauss, Vanees ic Co.,
and Campbell Knox Sc, Co. were for some
time in great danger, but excepting tbe break?
age of tho front glasses in the lower story es?
caped material damage. Holmes & Calder's
store was completely destroyed and the
building occupied by Mr. W. L. Webb
was almost gutted by the flames. * Af I er
thc fire had reached the second building a largo
portion of the south wall fell, carrying with it
the rafters and stock that was upon the back
floors. The firemen succeeded in extinguish?
ing tho flames about two o'clock, but the stores
of Holmes & Calder and W. L. Webb were com?
pletely ruined, and the stocks destroyed.
Messrs. Holmes & Calder had a full stock,'
which was, insured in Tupper's "agency for
$14,000 on oils and paints, and $3000 on belt
ing. Mr. Webb was insured for $15,000 on his
stock in the agencies of Colburn dsHowoll, and
Tobias and Hon our. The buddings were each j
insured for $10,000. That occupied by Webb
belonged to the estate of T. A. P. Horton, and
was insured for $7000 in the London and Liv?
erpool Globe Company, and for $3300 in Mr.
Oakes' agency. The building occupied by
Holmes & Calder belonged to the esUte of Bell,
and was insured for $10.000 in Northern agen?
cies. The oil stock in the back part of the store,
amounting to nearly $2000, was saved in a par?
tially damaged condition. A large portion of
the crockery ware was also saved, but the setB
have boen broken, and the stock thus rendered
comparatively valueless. The oils and other
inflammable material caused the heat to be so
intense that many supposed another large fire
was inaugurated. The boarders of the Charles?
ton Hotel, and the inmates of the adjoining
houses, collected their household goods and
prepared for a sudden exodus, but their ap?
prehensions, fortunately, wero not realized.
Ropes were stretched in front of the building
yesterday, and paseongers prevented from
passing along the east pavement, as the front
walls were in a dangerous condition.
COBONEB'S INQUEST.-Coroner Whiting held
on Saturday an inquest over the remains of
Frank Garner, tho white man drowned with
Mr. Roddin. A post mortem examination was
held by Dra. F. P. Porcher and Ayer, and they
testified that the bo y showed no marks of
violence, and was only disfigured by the fish.
Harry Jenkins, Thos. Crews and Alex. Briant,
the colored crew, swore to substantially the
same statement that has been already pub?
lished. Mr. Roddin, Uarner and the colored
woman, Ann Rutledge, were drowned when tho
boat capsized the second time. Tho jury ren?
dered a verdict ot accidental drowning.
