third from Wlnnaboro', and they fell into con?
versation as follows:
No. L Well. I confess I am surprised to see
what large jobbing establishments they have
here. I did not know before that they had
any at all.
No. 3. Nor did I, for that matter, until last
fall, when I saw their advertisement in the
Columbia Phoenix, and came down and
bought my goods from them, and was very
No. 2. I Btw that advertisement, too, In an
Augus' a paper, t'M I have often seen as big a
one io the Augusta papers, and iniheE ige
fleld Advertiser, from one house in Augusta,
andi thought, if it io >k twenty of them to pay
for one adveni-emenr, they must either be so
poor or so mean that I would not like to buy
lrom them, BO I weut lo Augusta a? usual.
No. L Well, I can't afford to take any but
my county paper, and I suppose they thought,
that was not worin advertising ID. BO I did
not see their advertisement at all. If I har*
I might have bought here :-.st season and
certainly would ihis season, for I h^V/e. 'ion.?
been tired of Augus1 a, and new^oat ? have
made a little money I am goin.^ to N-w York.
I would si op here, t houtih, Vi I had not already
made my arrangements ior the trip.
No. 2. Jus so with me, and I don't suppose
you or i will ever trade here now, tor once
we begin busbies-* In New York, lt will suit
us best to continue lt there.
No 3. We 1,1 was going to buy here, but
I bjfljeve I'll KO with you to New York Just for

EXTENSIVE FIRES IN SAVANNAH.-On Satur?
day evening the saw mill of Messrs. Bradley &
?ons, at Eastern wharf, Savannah, Georgia,
Look fire and was burned to the ground. The
Ire originated within the mill, and spread
rapidly, being fed by a large amount of lum
Uer, some 400,000 feet, In the vicinity. Some
ten or twelve vessels lying at the wharf only
escaped destruction by promptly cutting their
moorings and hauling out into the stream.
The schooners Eagle, Carrie Heyer, Mary, and
Eliza were, notwithstanding, damaged by the
Sames in their rigging. The mill, known as
Boss Mill, and lately flited up with new and
expensive machinery, was entirely destroyed,
entailing a loss of $35,030-$10,000 of which was
Insured. Two hundred thousand feet of lum?
ber were burned. Many of the employees of
the mill suffered also in the loss of their tools
ind other personal property.
At twelve o'clock on the Sunday night fol?
lowing another fire broke out In a two-story
rame building at the corder of West Broad
md River streets In t'?e same city. Owing to
Lhe combiis'J.oie materials the flames spread
wilu great rapidity, and the building was
;oon burnt to the ground. It was owned by
MesflV3. J. Pau'sen <fc Co., was valued ut $2800
?.'ad Insured for $1000. The adjoining building,
owned by policeman Keys, took fire In the
roof but was saved by the efToats of the fire?
men. It was damaged to the extent ol $500,
which is fully covered by lusurauce. The
Fire Department labored at these fires with
but little intermission, and the papers are loud
in praise o? their devotion. Savannah ls also
troubled about her short supply of hose, which
has been reduced to an eighth of the regular
quota by these unusual and hard-fought bat?
tles against the Ure king.
The Abbott Troup?.
The pantomime o? "The Three Hunchbacks"
was reproduced by the Abbott troupe at the
Academy iast evening before a good house. It
was received even more favorably than on
Monday, for it was given with a life and spirit
which kept the audience in a laugh through?
out. The dances and other specialties Intro,
duced were loudly applauded. This evening

the affecting incidents of the famous nursery
legend, will be presented.
