RIDGEWAY, 5. 0., Feb. 23, 1878.
A well planned attempt at incen
diarism was made here last night,
by which Mr. Grigsby came near
losing his store-house with his
entire stock. Mr. Grigsby had a
quantity of rich light-wood for
stove use piled under one end of
his counter. Some person, proba
bly noticing this, went under the
store and bored an auger hole
directly under the light--wood, and
through this aperture stuffed sever
al handfuls of cotton thoroughly
saturated with turpentine, to which
was applied the match. Peter
Pickens, whose shoe- shop is next
door, happening to come out on the
street, discovered a blaze under the
store, and immediately raised the
alarm. Mr. Ross Williams, who
sleeps in the store, rushing out
with a pan of water, extinguished
the flames, which bad not progressed
far. 'The probability is that had
the hole been larger, o les tightly
stuffed with cotton, the flames
would have reached the light-wood
and spread inside the store, and
would thus have betiome unc6h
trollable. There is as yet no clue
to the would-be itiend y.

The Town Ordinances.
The communication of "Cit.,"
published elsewhere, is quite to the I
point. We have ourselves wonder.
9d why the "cow ordinance" has
aot been published. We are au- q
horitatively informed that it was
passed by Council, but as to its
lerms and requirements, we are like r
verybody outside of the Council
n total ignorance. We have un-. i
lerstood that the Council intend to V
-e-enact and then publish in
amphlet form all the town ordi- '
nances, but when this will be done,
we cannot say. We think that a
whether the pamphlet comes out or
iot, each ordinance ought to be
?ublished in THE NEws AND HERALD.
For this, of course, we expect to be
aid-as are all other newspapers
hat do such work. But if the *
Lown of Winnsboro is actually too
poor to pay a small sum of money C
ror a thing that is of interest and
mportance to all her citizens, and
if the Council will, in solemu form, -
leclare that extreme poverty to
3xist, we shall gladly do the work 1
We have long wanted to publish
% report of Council proceedings,
for, not only would such publica
Lion interest our readers and help .
Dur paper, but .we conceive that the
taxpayers ought to be fully and
constantly informed of what Coun
Dil is doing, and of all receipts and
disbursements at the town treasury.
Not that anybody suspects any..
thing wrong, but that everybody
feels an interest, and wants to know
just what is doing. We have long
desired, as we have said before, to
publish a synopsis of Council pro
Leedings, but, through no fault of
Dur own, have been unable to do so.
Our understanding is that at the
Council meetings no one is expected
(if, indeed, allowed) to be present
but the members themselves.
Otherwise we should always have
present some one to report for
rim NEws AND HERALD. On inquir
ing about the matter, we have gen
Drally received a reply to the effect
that there would be no objection to
publishing the proceedings, and
that we cuuld get them from the.
Olerk. On applying to the Clerk,
we were courteously treated, of
sourse, but told that we could get
the proceedings from his minute
book.. This put an qud to the..
natter. The minute-book, if like
all other minute-books, will give -
ittle information ; and, besides, we
rather think the minutes wvould not f
be formally written out when we
should want~ them. Frotn the notew
of the Clerk, taken 4t the meeting, ,r
we could not get what we want. I
We make these suggestions to the
Council : 1. Require the Clerkc4 t
furnish, for publication in Tmtu Nzws
ma~ HEALD, a full report of the ptd-',
seedings of each meeting;i or, let a
reporter attend the meetings. 2,
Cease the practice of false economy,
and publish all ordinances in full, as
they are enacted ; or, if the town .
is in such a state of poverty as to
be actually Unable to pay for adver..
bising, appeal to the charity of some ~
newspappr man, and have the work 1
tione for nothing.

TO L MBSTIRE SAVING WiOB TIlL IT
There is a curious story about some native
wines which are extensively advertised nowa
4ys, and have only recently been put upon
toe market. Dr. .Underhill, the well-known
grape-grower of Croton Point, died in x87r.
Some of his heirs entertAined tempe'rance
views q( suich tremo kiqdthat thy were
unwllht to'allow the gtccot 6 wiesKn 6
hand to be sold or: any nipro to bq made.
The grapes have sometimes been sent to,
market;: and sometimes 'lft to decay-upon"
the vines. It is only now lipt the other heirs
have succeeded in arranging for a settlement
of the estate and the sale of' the wines on
hand. Among these is a wine of the vintage
of 1864, described as a "Sweet Union Port,'"
but suggesting the IdipetIal Tokay more
than any other European wine, and being
wholly unlike any other wine of American
growth. Its purity, age and mellowness are
remarkable, and both physicians and ivine
ranciers have a special interest in it as the
oldest native wine now accessible In any con
siderable quantity. The wholestock is inthe
hands of the well-knowtt Whdiosal' grocery
house of the ThurbersMN. ;Y* '7Wuns,
Nov. 19, 1877.
The above speaks for its"If, but we would
add that this is the pure judce/of the grape.
neither drugged, fiuorf not teae,#: tiat it
has been ripened and Mnelledd by age, and
for medicinal r sacramental purposes; it Is
ansurpassed. It can be obtained from most
of the leading Druggists ltlroughout the
