To our Friends tn the Country.
The strides which THIS NEWS ha? made in cir?
culation, especially in the country, within the last
twelve mouths, encourage us to redouble our
efforts to make it such a paper as everybody wants
to read, and a visitor which shad be welcomed in
ever/ household ia Ute St atc There ls no good
reason.vhT. aUve Charleston newspaper, which
keeps pace with the progress and spirit of the
.day, and ls published at a price which places it
within the reach of aU, should'not, with proper
mall faculties, attain' a circulation of Thirty
Thousand copies; and we can promise that no ex?
ertions or enterprise shall be wanting on our part
to make the regular edition of this journal ap?
proximate to that figure.
As a peculiarly attractive inducement to the
planters of the State to become subscribers to
THE NEWS before the expiration of the present
year, we have arranged with Messrs. Walker,
l*jvans A Cogswell, the publishers of the " Rural
Carolinian," to supply that new and superb agri?
cultural magazine, together with TEE NEWS, to
new subscribers, at the fohowlng very low rates:
TBS DAILY NEWS and the " Rural Carolinian,"
one year, for six dollars and fifty cents.
TEX TBI-WEKKLY NEWS and the " Rural Caroli?
nian," ono year, for four dollars.
Subscriptions to the two publications may be
sent either to the proprietors of THE NEWS, or to
the proprietors of the *'Rural Carolinian." But
persons desiring to avail themselves of this offer
must do so before the first of January next, as
the arrangement will Hot be extended beyond
When these rates are contrasted with those of
the Charleston papers before the war, when the
yearly price of a daily was ten dollars, and of a
tri-weekly five dollars, in gold, or its equivalent,
we think we may fairly claim that THE NEWS has
labored to some purpose in the diffusion of Intel?
ligence among the people at prices suited to the
changed aspect of the times.

RAILROAD CONSOLIDATION IN NORTH CAROLINA.
The Wilmington Journal of yesterday announces

lina Road for twenty years, at six per cent per
annum upon the capital stock, subject to the ap?
proval of the stockholders, at a special meet?
ing to be held in Raleigh on the 11th of No?
vember. The Journal Ls surprised at "this at?
tempt to make a private arrangement with one
road when three others-Richmond, Danville and
Piedmont, wilmington aad Weldon, and the At?
lantic and North Carolina Railroads-were equal?
ly interested, and if this great work ls to be rent?
ed, it would have commanded a much greater
price at public auction."

Blbff9 of Charleston, and Rt. Rev. W. H. Elder,
Bishop of Natchez.
SKIFF ASP GAYLORD'S MINSTRELS.-This com?
pany will open in this city to-night, and remain
with us during the week. If the notices of the
press in the different cities and towns they have
visited can be taken as an evidence of their worth,
we can assure our readers that a rich treat ls in
store for all who ure fond of such entertainments.
The following notice ls taken from the Norfolk
The first part of the entertainment was gone
through In a highly satisfactory manner, Low
Gaylord and Harry" Talbot occupying the ends
and never failed to keep the house in a storm of
laughter, when we were at once silenced by the
beautiful singing of Signor GuBtave Bideaux. He
rendered a ballad entitled "Come sit by my side,
little darling," full of pathos and sentiment, and
his rich baritone voice did full justice to the
song. Joe Moirs, the fascinating dancing queen,
went through his part in a truly artistic manner.
Johnny Reese sang a very good comic song which
was loudly encored. The two conspicuous hotel
porters, Introducing Harry Talbot, Joe Mairs and
G. Lang, was very funny. The Triple Clog, by
StUes Phelps and Armstrong, was the gem of the
evening. The opera scene from True-Bad-door
was a very amusing .burlesque. Several other
specialties were presented. The performance con?
cluded with Professor Shaffer's 1'an'et hiopt iconlca.
These views are worth the price of admission
alone, to say nothing of their "minstrel enter?
tainment." We would especially commend the
performance as entirely free from vulgar allu?
sions or indecencies of any kind. A lady can at?
tend with entire Impunity, which is saying a
great deal for a minstrel show.
THE FIRE SATI-RHAY NIGHT.-About half-past
7 o'clock Saturday night the bells sounded the
alarm of fire. The engines were promptly out,
and, after a long run, found the flames issuing
from a kitchen on the premises of Mrs. Blake, at
the corner of Columbus and Drake streets. Water
was not easily obtained, and before the fire was
extinguished Mrs. Blake's house, the house ad?
joining, occupied by Mr. N. F. Petit, a small frame
house occupied by Mr. Moseley, and the sta?
ble of Mr. H. F. Strohecker, were consumed. Wc.
could not learn whether any of the property
destroyed was Insured. The loss, including the
damage (Jone to the fences, outbuildings, Ac,
will not, lt ls thought, exceed $5000. The build?
ings destroyed were of wood.
The houses of Messrs. Strohecker and Cochran
were slightly damaged. There was a great scarci?
ty of water. Streams were play ed through fifteen
hundred feet of hose. But for this scarcity of
water, little damage would have been done by
the fire. It ls believed that the fire was acci?
We are informed by the Chief Engineer that
there was much confusion because of the careless?
ness of ?he bell-ringer at the Orphan House. De?
siring the engines from District Three, the Chief
ordered the bell to be sounded three times, but
the bell-ringer sounded lt twelve times, and
brought out the entire department. After this
the bell-ringer sounded the bell three times,
which led every one to believe that there was a fire
in District Three, and caused many of the firemen
to leave the fire and come down town.
THE SWINDLERS-THEY CARRY ON THEIR RAS?
CALITY TO THE LAST.-THE NEWS has already
given an account of the arrest here of "West?
lake" and "Bergman," upon the charge of
About six o'clock on Saturday last they were
carried before Magistrates Whiting and Schroder
upon a writ of habeas corpus, and after an In?
vestigation were discharged. Lieutenant Philip
py requested the postponement of the investiga?
tion, stating that the deputy sheriff of Savannah
was hourly expected, and when he came could
give satisfactory reasons for the prisoners' being
held In custody.
"Westlake" and "Bergman," as soon as they
received their discharge, left on the South Caro?
lina tram. About io o'clock the same night, Mr.
George S. Barth?lmesa, deputy sheriff of Savan?
nah, arrived with a requisition for the two men.
He had thirteen warrants for their arrest-two
for stealing, three for forgery and the remainder
for swindling. He communicated with Lieuten?
ant PhUippy and for the first time learned that
the men had gone. He then stated that he would
go in pursuit of them, and Lieutenant PhUippy
detailed Officer TruaU to go with him. Telegrams
were then sent to Augusta, Branchville, Colombia
and Florence requesting the authorities to be on
the look tut for the swindlers and arrest them,
rhe deputy sheriff and Officer TruaU left on thc
Routh Carolina train yesterday morning.
Thc swindlers employed a lawyer to represent
them before the magistrates and handed him a
package marted fifty dollars, thc amount they
had agreed to pay him. On opening lt he found
that it contained only thirty-seven dollars.
* Officers Barthelmess and TruaU arrived at
Branchville at 12 o'clock yesterday and found
that the swindlers had left there for Wilmington
on the " lightning train " about two hours be?
fore* While walting at Branchville a dog bit one
of the swindlers. He wanted to kill the dog with
his pistol, bnt refrained when thc owner Intimated
that he would treat the shooter to a dose of shot
li tho dog was hurt. Thc officers, telegraphed to
the authorities at Wilmington to arrest the
CRUMBS.-Thomas Graham, negro, one of the
parties Implicated in the theft of nine hundred
pounds of cotton from the plantation of Captatn
Cordes, has escaped.
One mUUon two hundred and eleven thousand
one hundred and ninety-three pounds of sea Is?
