THE VISITING FIREMEN.
Their Arrival and their Reception.
INCEPTION AT BRANCHVILLE.
At an early hour yesterday morning delegates
from the Pheonix, German and Washington
Fire Companies, left the city on thc South
Carolina Railroad to welcome, on thc part of
the Fire Department of thia city, the visiting
companies from Augusta and Columbia. On
arriving at Branchville, they found their visit?
ing friends drawn up iu line on ths platform.
The Charleston delegation, under Directer
Augustine T. Smythe, of the Phoenix, faced
them, when Mr. Smythe addressed them, as?
suring them of a hearty welcome in Charles?
ton, and the eager anti ;ipat ion with which tho
Giemen awaited their coniirg to participate in
the parade. He cautioned them to look to
their laurels, for whilst they would bo accord?
ed a sincere welcome, to a fair and sonorous
rivalry for the championship, tbey would need
to strain every nerve to bear off the palm.
Great things were expected of them by reporte
which had reached us, but there were "one or
two" companies in the "City by the Sea" which
expected to give them occasion to do their
best. He reiterated a hearty welcome, and in
behalf of the Fire Depirtment of Charleston,
and especially of the three companies repre?
sented in the delegation, whose guests they
would be, oSered them a fireman's welcome
anda firemat'a hospitality.
Director Smythe was replied to by Captain
Nibling, of the Washington Fire Company of
Augusta, Mr. Ells, a member of the Citizen
of Augusta, and Vice-Preaidont Shiells, of the
Palmetto of Cjlumbia; all assuring him they
appreciated bis warm welcome, and that his
words of caution had not been and would not
bo neglected by them.
After three hearty cheers all round and gen?
eral introductions they all entered the cars, the
whistle blew and on tbey came to Charleston.

Arriving at the depot in Line-street, they
debarked and formed in the railroad yard,
where the German, the Phoenix and Washing?

The lesponse to President Tupper was made

partment of Charleston : Just escaped from

What stir and commotion baa characterized
tho approach of this eventful day to our quiet
citizens, and how thc heart beats with new life
aud emotion in contemplating the approaching

ton. Take a stroll ? ?th ua, gentle reader, and
whilst we view and UDderatand thc "animus"
which pervades our citizens, let ua endoavo: to
portray, if wo can, the various omotiocs which
pervade tho breast of those who now pasi in

But one scntimont, one aspiration tills the
breast of the p isscra by. The business of tho
day has boen consummated in the delivery of
tho letters from thc mail, and nothing now
awaits our clerks and buHinesa men but "the
thoughts of tho morrow." True, no vision of
"notaries public," ffith their bland maunera,
torturo them, but the thought of the success
of each one's "particular machino" ia upper?
most, and the tendency to bet upon their
favorite company, is their all engrossing topic.
Each and every one is astir.
