CHANT.-Mr. Paul Spofford, of the firm of 8pofford,
XQeston * Co., one of the oldest aud most res?
pected merchants of New York, died at his coun?
try residence, near that city,, on Thursday, in the
79th year ot his age. Mr. Spofford came to New
Tort with his long-tried partner, Mr. Tiles ton,
' from the fast,' and started in the wholesale shoe
trade, but this they abandoned entirely in 1846,
and since that tune the firm bas only been known
by its connection with the shipping interests of
the country, having established lines to Havana

THE LONGSHOREMEN AGAIN-THEY RESOLVE
MOT io WORK POE ANY STEVEDORE WHO IS NOT
A MEMBER or THEIR UNION.-The strike of the
longshoremen continues, but they are very order?
ly, abd do not congregate about the wharves or
interfere with those who are at work.
On Friday night last roe Union held a meeting

of the laboring classes, both individually and col- '

THE CHARLESTON HOTEL.-The Improve?
ments upon this long and favorably Known hotel
are nearly completed, and lt ls now not only an
ornament to the city, but, as of yore, an attrac?
tive resort for, the travelling public-1. e., if the
large number or arrivals dally recorded on the
register be any criterion.
During the last two months a large \ force of
' painters, carpenters, cabinet-makers, carpet
workers and whitewashers have been diligently
employed in refitting the hotel ind preparing it
for the winter campaign. That their work has
not been la vain ls shown by the numberless ez
tmtal and Internal improvements. On the first
i floor are located the office, ladies' and gentle?
men's reception rooms, reading room, dining
.rona,bar room, all er which are. arranged' in
a way that affords every convenience and com

above are elegantly famished with black walnut
furniture, while heavily tapestried windows, and
carpets, that spring beneath your feet,

Mr? E. i?. Jackson, the proprietor, whose man
agement since he hos had charge or the hotel has
entitled sim to the degree of "He knows how to

A. Butterfield and E. T. Burdell, alt of whom have

HCRLEB INTO T1FE WATER.-About half-past C
o'clock last night the steamer Dictator, from
Savannah, ran Into a sail boat emuming four
men and a boy, off Castle I'inckney. The wheel of
the steamer crushed in thc stern of the boat. The
cries of thc occupants was th* first knowledge the
officers of the steamer had of its proximity to thc
boat. As rapidly as was possible, after thc acci?
dent, a boat was lowered from the steamar, and
sent in Search of the boat's crew. After a short
search they were picked up, placed on thc steam?
er and brought np to the city. Beyond a thorough
soaking thay received no damage.
Mr. John Lawrence, an experienced seaman,

THE FTR? AT THE CITADEL SATURDAY
MORNING-EXPLOSION OE CARTRIDGES-A CCI
DESTS-LETTER OF COLONEL EDIE.-At a quarter
past six o'clock on Saturday morning last smoke
was seen issuing from the lower portion of the
west wing of the Citadel, and the alarm was
given. About a half of an hour afterward the
alarm was sounded from the bell.. The firemen
with the apparatus of that district were promptly
on the ground, and- worked manfully to extin?
guish the flames.
There was a strong easterly wind blowing at
the time, and while it prevented any damage from
the fire to the main portloa of the Citadel, yet
carried showers of sparks In a westerly direction.
I Several times the roofs vt the row of houses on
King street, opposite th J Citadel, were set afire
by sparks, but were immediately extinguished.
By 8 o'clock, the flames were subdued, but only
ofter the whole of the west wing, excepting the
walls, was consumed. Had the lire occurred at
night, the damage to property would have been
muchjgreater, as it is more than probable that
several of the houses on King street would have
The amount of damage is not known. Thc fire
is supposed by some to have been cansed by the
sparks from a soldier's pipe falling Into the hay.
In the store-room where the fire originated were
stored several hundred pounds of hay and straV,
and about two thousand tube cartridges. The
rooms over the store-room were used as quarters
for the soldiers. During the Are these tube car
I tridges commenced to explode. The spectators,
j not knowing exactly what caused these exptc
I slons, rapidly moved out of range* Fortunately
no one was hurt. The cap of one of the specta?
tors was pierced by a fragment of the exploding
There were several accidents during the llrc.but
none, we are gratified to state, wer' or a serious
? character. Two soldiers, whose usual way of
egress from their sleeping quarters was cut off by
the flame's, jumped from thc windows, aiul re?
ceived severe bruises. Mr. White, a member of
Truck Company, No. 1, was slightly injured
by thc capsizing of a truck.
As usual there is much complaint about the
sounding of the alarm bell. It is stated that the
ringer sounded for the sixth district when he
should have sounded for thc fifth; that he did not
sound the bell until half an hour after the alarm
was given; that when ordered to call out the fire?
men of the first district he sounded the general
alarm, and brought out the entire department.
The following is a copy of a letter sent to Chief
Engineer Nathan by Colonel Edie, commanding
at the Citadel:
HEADQUARTERS POST OK CHARESTON, \
CHARLESTON, S. C., October, 30, i860. (
M. II. Nathan, Esq., Chief Fire Department:
SIR-Permit rae to tender through you to the
members of the different fire companies of the
city my thanks for their promptness, energv ami
efficiency in arresting the fire at the Citadel this
morning. But for their efforts thc whole build?
ing must have been destroyed. Their conduct is
deserving of the highest commendation, and it is
g' atifying to me to so declare.
I am, with great respect,
Your obedient servant, ,
JOHN R. EDIE,

W. Williams and Co. oder in to-day's NEWS a very
tempting array of substantial and valuable prizes
tb thc planters who may achieve the most conspi?
cuous success in thc culture of cotton, corn or
wheat, by the aid of their excellent Carolina Fer?
tilizer. The feature of their offer is that the prizes
are to be awarded, not to the largest yield abso?
lutely, but to the largest percentage of increased
production. In this way the owner of poor land
will have quite as good a chance in the contest as
his more fortuuate neighbors.
THE OUSTED OFFICERS.-P. .1. Coogun, M. O.

twenty-one well dressed single gentlemen who

A LITTLE COBKORT.-It seemed to us on
Saturday that thc displays at the various clothing
stores were unusually attractive. The change in
the weafner, doubtless, had its eifect in controll?
ing our judgment, as lt usually docs everybody
else's In this matter. The display of Messrs. Geo.
Little & Co., King atreet, was particularly seduc?
tive, they being just in receipt of their new goods
of the latest style, material, Ac., and which they
offer at the lowest rates possible.
BUCEPHALUS ON SPRINGS.-It is related of
Bucephalus, a mighty war horse of antiquity, that
although with thc aid of Apollo he could cast a
shadow that frightened himself, yet he could not
cast his master, Alexander, who was accounted
a great man among those fools, thc ancients,
merely because he had sense enough to turn his
.horse's head towards the sun. In these days every
mau ls his own king, unless, Indeed, he be a mem?
ber of the Union League and bound by his oath to
obey his master, the devil. Therefore, every Alex?
ander ls entitled to his own Bucephalus, and if he
cau't get ope of flesh and blood, he puts up with
one 6f wood, leather and iron. Although the
latter kind may not have as much spirit ns the
veritable Bucephalus of old, their necks are de?
cidedly stiffer, and if one of them takes to rear?
ing like the specimen at Yon Sauten's Bazaar,
the youngster who would manage him must have
more brains than thc son of Philip of Macedon.

business cards printed thereon, at $4 per thous?

business man should have his card printed on l?a
KISSINU EXTRAORDINARY.-To kiss volunta?
rily ls always a pleasure; sometimes it is a luxury.
There is, we presume, some gratification, how?
ever small, in one school girl kissing another;
there is certainly more in a young mother kissing
her tirst offspring, aud surely there is the heighth
of happiness in a lover kissing his mistress, aud
doe versa. But to kiss against your wilt, to kiss
your father's grund uncle when you arc a boy, or
your mother's graud aunt when you are a girl,
that is abominable. But to bc made to kiss the
same person one hnndred times a day, in public
and iu private, and that person an old person and
an ugly person, a person without heart, soul or
reeling, and without any reference to your own
inclination, ls not that thc depth of misery ? How,
then, should we pity those two India rubber coun?
terfeits of aged humanity, compelled hourly to
undergo this mockery of felicity for the amuse?
ment of the visitors to Von Santen's Christmas
Depot, at No. 290 King street.
