burlesquer gained for herself a host of friends,
and since then she has been extolled by the lead?
ing papers of New York, Philadelphia and Boston,
as the queen of builesque, a delightrul singer
^and a channing actress. Her company has been
strengthened by thc addition of some of the best

stitute the advisory members of the board lent
their hearty co operation to the scheme, and they
and their friends were wen represented, both by
their parses and their presence, on the occasion.
The parlors of the Home were thrown open to the
Inmates and the few Invited guests, and at aglven
signal the folding doors opened, and a Christmas
tree revealed, brilliantly Illuminated, and bearing
for fruit countless gifts. None were forgotten;
and distribution of the various articles was bare?
ly concluded, when saati Claus, gray, genial, and
carrying a pack loaded with toys and gifts, ap?
peared on the scene. Few knew who was per?
sonating thc character, bit it was done so com?
pletely, and the dlsg ilse was BO perfect, that the
mystery only enhanced the enjoyment. The even?
ing closed as pleasantly as it had been inaugu?
rated, and Twelfth Night will long be a popular
theme among the children of the Home.

Impossible for them, with their present resources,
to keep up their distribution of wood among the
poor of the city, and arter this month lt will be
entirely discontinued, unless some aid from with?
out ls received. Their appeal at Christmas was
responded to by but one kind friend, and had lt
not been for $200 kindly given them by Mr. Gage,
early in the season, they woald not have been
able to accomplish as much in the way of relief as
they have already done. The severity or trie win?

JACK FROST.-In Greenville, on Christmas

February 8, 1835, when the thermometer sink io
or ll degrees below zero. On Monday after Christ?
mas, Reedy River presented a most beautiful

THE ALARM OF FIRE on Saturday evening
1 was caused by the burning of the bakehouse In the
rear or Mr. Buchhelt's bakery, on East Bay. The
fires had been slackened and left In the furnaces as
usual over night, when, at a quarter to 8 o'clock,
the flames suddenly burst out. Owing to the
continual heat kept up In the building, lt was as
dry as trader, and burned very rapidly. The en?
gines were promptly on the spot, and, with their
timely aid, the fire in the bakehouse was prevent?
ed from spreading to the rest of the bakery and
dwelling-house adjoining. The bakehouse was en?
tirely consumed. The loss is estimated at $1000,
only one-hair of which is covered by insurance.
Within this house were biscuit machlnery_twen
ty-elght or thirty barrels or flour, and all the ap?
purtenances for a complete bakehouse. This
stock was owned by Mr. J. F. Bnchhelt, and en?
tirely lost. It was insured to the amount of J
$1500, which ls about half of the actual loss.
Notwithstanding this accident, the business will
go on as usual._
THE MURDER OF MR. DUBARD.-The follow?
ing particulars of tho murder of this estimable
man, already reported by telegraph, ore glv?n by
the Columbia Phoenix:
lt appears that Mr. Dubard left Columbia on
Thursday afternoon, for his home, about fifteen
miles above Columbia. About six miles from the
city lils body was round, pierced through with
several slugs. The deceased was robbed or his
watch and'moncy, but thc bundies in lils buggy
were left untouched. It is supposed that he was
instantly killed; his coat was burnt with powder,
proving that the murderer stood very close when
the fatal shot was fired. The incentive ot the as?
sassin was, doubtless, money. Mr. Dubard was
an old and respected cltizeu of Richland, and
highly esteemed fr his strong and reliable traits.
He was a lending member of the Methodist
Church, and In his neighborhood was Its main
stay. A cruel deed deprlved'hlm or his life. But
ns a pious. God fearing oki man, lt ls to be pre?
sume! that he was not unprepared for the quick
summons that came to him. His violent and
sudden death will excite general and genuiue
sympathy. Thc assassin ls not yet known, but
lt ls to be hoped that the officers of the law and
the rrlendsorthe deceased will use every proper
means to tlx upon the ?tien 'er the responsibility
of hls.atroclous crime. The marks of flat feet were
dtlstnctly seen about the body.
