We understand that Mr. T. W.
Albergotti is hard at work nn-i will
ooou reopen his bakery.
C. D. Kortjohu was not burnt out
Just look at his advertisement, if you
want to bo convinced. He offers a
epiendid stock of goods.
T. Koun & Brother still live. Thoy

near Bull & Scovills where they will
be glad to servo their old customers.
We call attention to the dissolution
?of tho firni of Vose & Izlnr. Tlio bu
siness will hereafter be conducted solely
bv Mr. Vcso, whose popularity and
mercantile ability is fully established.
We wish him continued success.
It is said that a man iu Kansas
named Hamilton, having been giltcd
successively by the two daughters of a
Mr Bear,finally offered Mr Bear 8500
for his wife, to which Mr B consented
and all parties are now living happily
Wo regret to hear of several families
in this County emigrating. It is sad
to see our best citizens leaving,
which is only making.the condition of
those who are left behind more gloomy.
We want every good man to stay and
?h many more as possible to come in
to help us.
The Southern Cultivator is upon
our table for January, As usual it
furnishes its renders w ith a rich supply
of literary matter. We notice an ar
ticle in it from our friend M. L Bald

Were eroMlcd, especially about the

A ;;oi?d sr.jiny horse.** ami mule* and
O'.her personal property were suhl.
Farmers seemed to be actively arrang

told several valuable pieces of proper
ty, which seemed to bring lair prices.
TakitKU an outside or bird's eye view,
we w.re-very much pleased with what
done at the Fair Grounds on the
iiOth of December. We don't know
about the picnic, hut, irom wlint we
can see from the street, the grounds
will be very much improved by the
Besides the beautifying of the prom
\fca and of the town generally, it will
certainly be a source of pleasure in
after years for the owner of each tree
?r his children to enjoy its shade, and
contemplate the associations with
which it was connected.
W? thiuk it advisable to draw ntten
tion to the advantages of the Ashville
and Spartanburg Railroad, which is
now in process of construction. Every
county is certainly benefited, if provis
ions are made cheaper, and immigrants
are tempted to settle amongst us,wliich
is the inevitable result of the building
of this groat avenue to the West. If
immigrants come to Charleston and
take their western journey through our
State, we can surely induce some of
them to stop. We appeal to every
citizen in the State to aid in this great
enterprise as far as he can.
We think the people of Orangeburg
Would like very much to know what
ia the. real obstacle to the opening of
that new street. We are informed
that Judge Glover has also offered a
street through his lot to connect this
Ht?cet with Russell street.
These would be incalculable improv
monta to our town if pushed through,
and we trust Council will rouse from
their inaction. Streets aro as necessary
to tho prosperity of a town, ns veins
to tho health of the body. Tho en
hancement of property more than
compensates for the trifling tax re
Tho Business part of Orongebnrg in
On Tuesday morning, while our good
citizens were rapt in slumber, the fire
fiend visited our Town with probably
the greatest calamity within the recol
lection of tue oldest inhabitant.
About 2 o'clock at night the fire |
commenced in tho kitchen of Mr Cart
mill, from which it spread, despite the
efforts of tho Firo Department and
citizens, until the richest portion of our
nourishing Burg was completely, devas
The scene in tho morning was truly
melancholy, and beggars description.
It only reminds us in a forcible man
ner of tho fickle and transitory nature
of human affairs, and of the folly of
laying too much stress upon earthly
possessions. Men who on Monday
were strong in all that makes life com
fortnble,on Tuesday were brought low,
if not dismayed. Whilo some may be
able to recover, others doubtless will
he hopelessly ruined. Nor will the
loss fall wholly upon those who are
directly scourged; but every citizen
will be an indirect sufferer in tho de
preciation of property and tho derange
ment of business.
Besides numerous out buildings
every store on the North'side of Rus
sell street from Lightfobts toMeroneys
hotel,inclusive, were totally destroyed,
as well as every ono on the South side
except Mr Louis* on one corner nud
Mr Harleys on tho other.
The entire loss cannot fall short of
8150,000 of which not more than ?20
000 seems to have beju covered by

Robinson nnd the Orangcburg News, j
As we did not wish to be too prying
iu the midst of so much distress, we
can now only approximate the losses,
leaving a more exact account fer the
future. We understand that Mr Kohn
was insured for $10,000, Mr Mcroney
for (#,000,; Mr Lightfoot for $1500,
Mr Briggmann, one half insured, Mr
Cornclson und Mr McNaaiara par
tially insured, ami Mr Rich slightly
Mr Light foot's-and Mr Rich's insur
ance bore no comparison to their Ibises,
which were immense. Tho others were
total losers. Mcroiicys fine hotel is
gone, and Mr D Louis alono lost lour
stores. We understand that Mr McNa
nut ras insurance avails him nothing,
and he is a total loser.
Jt will require years for the town to
recover lroiy. this stroke of fortune.
(July a small portiou of the contents
of the stores were rescued from the
flames. It is said to the credit of the
colored people that they acted nobly,
and did all they could to save property
In fact all, both white and colorcd,did
their best. We would not discriini
natein favor of any. If mistakes were
made, they were made with the best
intention, audit is not right now to
dwell upon them. Let every emotion
now be buried in sympathy for tho
The stores of Mr Harley, Mr Louis
Mr Hamilton and the Times Office
made narrow and lucky escapes, being
badly scorched. Wc have heard ol
no casualties worth mentioning.
Now that all is over, wo desire to
mako one timely recommendation, and
that is, before rebuilding commences,
for R?ssel1 street to bo widened,nt least
fifteen or twenty feet. This can be
easily done now as there is not a buil
ding left on tho North sida from Mar
ket to Broughtou street. Let the. mat
ter betaken in hand at onco, before it
is too late. It would also be well for
more space to bo given between tho
houses and stores in the future.
We fear that much suffering will fol
low in the train of so dreadful a calam
ity,which we trust that those of us who
have been spared will do our best to
