Review or two ov our Fire
Despite tbe ugliness of the weather
on Monday last the streets of Orange
burp; were busy with life and cheerful
faces, especially among the Firemen.
The aficrnoon of that day was set
apart for a review by the Mayor and
tbe Hoard of Fire Masters of the
Engines received the day before by
the Independent Citizens' and Comet
Star Fire Companies'. The Engines
were richly decorated, and pi esentcd
a very handsome appearance. Both
companies are composed of the best
and most substantial of our colored
fellow-citizens, and were spoken of
very flatteringly by every one who
saw them ou parade.
A little after 3 o'clock in the after
noon the two compauies formed into
line on Market street and were re
viewed by Mayor Boliver and the
Board of Fire Masters. After the re
view?which was highly satisfactory
?the Mayor was introduced and
gave the Firemen there assembled
some good advice. He told them
that they should obey their officers on
every occasion. That should be their
highest duty, and with such a resolu
tion ou their part a match could not
catch in Ornngeburg that they could
not put out. He was proud to see the
good feeliug which existed between
the white aud colored Firemen. If
the same sculimcut could find ex
pression everywhere, we would all be
tbe better .off for it. Mr. Boliver
pledged himself to do everything that
he possibly could for tho futhcrauce
of the interests if the Fire Depart
ment, and closed by bidding them a
Mr. Riggs wos next introduced.
On-account of peculiar circumstances
he bad not been able to attend the
meetings of the fire companies, but he
felt-very proud to meet the Indepen
dent Citizens and Comet Fire Com
panies under such favorable auspices.
Was an old fireman and understood
its duties. Let each company en
deavor to emulate the other, and both
would become efficient at fires.
Would have new hose for them short
ly and would always take pleasure in
doing bis utmost to keep the two com
Dr. Elliott followed and was Iis
_ tened. to with marked attention. Ho
warned the companies aguinst all
wrangling, and told them that the
first duty of firemen was obedience to
officers. Where there was confusion
there was no obedience, and conse
quently no ofiiciency on the part of
those who encouraged it. If the com
panies kept this in mind they would
prove a great bctlelit to the town.
Capt. Jas. F. I/ilar spoke next.
Confessed that he was uot only pleased
but satisfied with the exhibition be
fore him, and was gratified that the
Citizens and Comet Fire Engine Com
panies were not composed of a few
persons, but were made up of a num
ber of strong and stalwart men?
citizens who would do their full duty
nt fires. Would illustrate the duty
of firemen by an anecdote: Once a
man who had been living disagreeably
with his wife for years resolved to put
a stop to tho trouble. He procured
himself a rope, threw it across his
house, and after taking hold of one end
of it himself commanded his wife to
take up the other end and pull it down.
She did her utmost but could not
succeed because her husband was
pulling away nt the other end. Fin
ally he came around to her side and
joining with his wife thoy both togeth
I er brought dowu tho ropo without any
j difficulty. So it \tivi with fire com
panies. If they pulled together they
could do much good, but if they pulled
away from each other they destroyed
j tbe efficiency of both. The companies
should pledge themselves in presence
of tho Mayor and Council and the
Hoard of Fira Masters to do this, and
he could (hen heartily congratulate
I the town upon their organization. The
speaker warned them to do nothing
to degrade the Fire Department; to
lay aside all wrangling and endeavor
to sec who could best agree. If they
would do this, they would become a
prido to the Fire Department and
evoke the applause and well done of

troduced by President Thompson of
the Independent Citizens, and made
on address full of sober words of
wisdom. On nccouut of its lcugth we
are compelled to defer its publication
until our next issue.
After the speaking tho two com
panies had a race, and threw water
against each other. Both received
prizes?one for speed and tho other
for throwing water the greatest dis
That New Paper.
The Charleston Journal of Com
merce is no longer xn imaginary affair.
On the first day of this month it put
in a real live, tangible appearance,
and will hereafter greet its friends
day after day the whole year round.
The Journal of Commerce- starts out
with a fine amount of advertising and
a large bona fide subscription. It is
Democratic in politics, but will be
independent in its views. The build
ing up of the commercial interests of
Charleston will receive a large share
of its attention. In short, the Journat
of Commerce will ere long become the
sine qua non of every household in tho
the" laud that desires to keep apace
with the times. It will speak no un
certain tone, nor regard tbe welfare of
South Carolina as a matter of serious
moniiut oi.ly at those times when its
own interests aie in danger. It will
battle in season and out of season for
the amelioration of the condition of the
suffering taxpayers. It will not hold
with the hare and run with the
bounds in the same breath. Tbe
miserable quasi Republican policy of
the A??r? and Courier will find a fit
ting rebuke in the bold and honor
able stand taken by its rival. We
commend the Journal of Commerce to
every person who desires a paper
honest and straightforwared in its
tone. Its conductors arc men of hon

S. \Y. Melton. Mr. Stone is not
known to fame, but it is said of him
that his record is clean, and that he
is a good lawyer. He suits the News
and Courier to a gnat's heel, and the
people of nil South Carolina, as a
matter of course, must sny nmen to
The New? and Courier tries to salve
over the defeat of Trenholm's coali
tion resolutions in the Charleston
Democratic Convention, and puts
their defeat on the ground that it was
"inexpedient to adopt any platform;"
but the fact is, the convention did en
tertain the resolutions and proceeded
to vote on them seriatim, and the ma
jority vote was so decidedly condem
natory that, finally, the whole batch
were tabled, and this tables the policy
of the News and Courier.?Greenville

The Editor of the Neios and Courier
got two slaps iu his face lately?one
from the Charleston Democratic
County Convention, which refused to
elect him to the State Convention, and
the other in the appearance of the
Jourwil of Commerce. Tho people are
tired of tho hot and cold policy of
that paper, and will give the Journal
of Commirce a hearty support from
the scahoard to the mountains.
