burning of the kitchen ol Mr. rV. B. Mloott,

of the kitchen was consumed before the flames
could be subdued. The fire originated in the

THE COLD SPELL.
L Yesterday the air blt ahrewdly and 'twas
very cold-it was a nipping and an eager air,
and people who bad business to attend to out
of doors were most eager to finish the same In
the shortest possible time so as to get In-doora
again. Overcoats were the order of the day;
reserved seats around the red-hot stoves at the
Charleston and Pavllon Hotels were at a pre?
mium; coat collars were high, and the mer?
cury in the thermometer was low. In short lt
waa the winter of everybody's discontent, and
much colder weather than people In this lati?
tude have aoy relish for.
The range ol the thermometer yesterday, at
the drug store of Mr. Joseph Blackman, on
tbe south side ol Broad street, was as follows:
8 A. M., S3; 10 A M., S3; 12 M., 36; 2 P. M., S6;
4 P. M., 34; 6 P. M., 32; 8 P. M., 31.

The announcement, yesterday morning, of
the death ot Ur. Thomas Dotterer Eason,
caused a deep sadness te pervade the commu?
nity, although, since be was struck with, para?
lysis a week ago, Lhere was little hope ot his
Mr. Eason was born in Charleston on the 9th
of October, 1822, and was, consequently, a few
months over Atty years old at tue time of his
death. He began life as an apprentice In the
machine shops ot bis uncle, Mr. Tbomas Dot?
terer. Alter serving out hts time, be became
the superintendent of the extensive rice mills
ot Mr. Jo sn ua J. Ward, on Waccam aw River.
South Carolina. Upon the death of his
uncle, in 1816, he gave up that position
to form with his elder brother the firm of
James M. Eason 4 Bro., which waa dissolved
only by bis death. Mr. Eason entered the
Confederate army at the commencement or
Ihe war aa a lieutenant of the Washington
Artillery. While that company was stationed
at. Adam's Bun in the early part of the year
1862 he was detailed by General N. G. Evans
for ordnance duty on his staff. A short time
later General Ripley made a requisition upon
the war department to have Mr. Eason as?
signed to special duty In Charleston, where
he remained until the dose of the war. He
was tor fifteen yeara a commissioner of the
Almshouse, and was also at one time presi?
dent ol the Eagle Steam Fire Company.
Mr. Eason was known by all who came in
contact with him to be an unostentatious
man, a staunob and generous friend, and a
good and charitable citizen. He was em
pbatlea,lj the frlead of the poor, and never
failed to respond to their applications for aid
or advice. ? In bis soda] relations no man was
more esteemed, and few men oould boast of
aa large a circle ol friends. He leaves a wife
and several ch lld ren to mourn a loss which ls
felt throughout the city be loved so ardently
and served so well.

evening, Mr. H. H. Raymond becoming the
fortunate owner. Tbls picture was painted
during the winter of 1871-2, while Mr. Boyle
was on a visit to this city.
The Debut of Wagner's Minstrels.
Happy Gal Wagner had reason to be par?
ticularly happy last nlgbt, for a large and
fine audience greeted the first appearance ol
his troupe at the Academy of Muslo, and all
were more than pleased. This troupe ls the
very best that baa visited .Charleston for
many years, and ls In fact In no respect Infe?
rior to Bryant's or the San Fra o sc I s co Min?
strels, excelling them both In the variety
and originality of the entertainment. Cal
Wagner and Sam Price are capital "end
men," the latter reminding ns most forcibly
of George Christy. Fred. Wilson's Grecian
Statue act ls as excellent as lt ia original.
Cal Wagner's minstrels are all that the
Southern and Western press have represented
them to be.
To-night there will be an entire change In
tbe programme. There will be no matinee
thia evening, as lt islhought best to defer lt
until New Tear's Day, when the oblidren will
have a gala time and enjoy a carnival of fun.
