! Dr. E. J. Olivcros. *
The sudden and melancholy ueutli
of this estimablo citizen on Tuesday
last, has cast a deep gloom over the
entire community. Indeed, a light
has gone out which will be seriously
Dr. Oliveros was widely known and
His kind and genial disposition j his
affable manners, and above all, his
warm heart?gained him a place in
the affections of every member of the
Orangeburg has .indeed been sorely
scourged, amidst all her recent calam
ities, to be deprived of such a citizen.
He was in the prime of life and in
the midst of his usefulness, aud he
possessed all those traits of character
and sterling qualities which will make
his loss irreparable. His tastes were
cultivated to a high degree, and in the
exercise of them he contributed not
only to his own enjoyment, but to tho
happiness of all around him.
The circumstances of his death were
peculiarly touching. His recent heavy
losses by the fire caused him to move
hastily into his beautiful dwelling,
. which he had nearly completed, and
doubtless his anxiety to promote the
comfort of his dear ones caused the
fatal fall which has ended so sadly.
We would not lilt the veil which
covers the grief of this afflicted family.
We tender them our heartfelt sym
pathies, and shall endeavor with them
to bow iu humble Submission to that
Supreme Wisdom which has taken
away from thorn a. loved. protector,
nnd from the community a valued citi
Hard as it is, let us dry our tears
an the comforting solace that "our
loss is his eternal gain."

We would state that we arc not
responsible for the dispatch on the
fire, signed M., as it appeurcd in the
News and Courier of the Gth of Janu
mt m ??
A New York paper nominates Moil.
David Davis as the best Democratic
candidate for President. This won't
do, for tho Radicals will be sure to
make out that he ii the veritable Jef
ferson or his first cousin.
We apologize to our readers for
appearing a day later last week; but
we trust the fact that our sub
scription book v? is mislaid in the con
fusion of the fire, and that the pub
lisher was sick, will be sufficient ex
Wc notice from the windows of our
office that even in spite of the bad
weather tho work of clearing away
the rubbish and preparing for rebuild
ing is progressing, The fact is, the
men who were burnt out in Orange
burg arc not the kind of stuff to give
wny to despondency. They may be
cast down, but they are not dismayed.
We venture the prediction that in
less than three years the passer by
would hardly know that tho town was
nearly destroyed by fire. That's
right, gentlemen. None but tho
brave deserve success.
As we promised in our lost issue as
soon as the confusion of tho fire
was over to give a statement of the
individual losses, we will endeavor to
do so to-day. The numerous ac
counts heretofore given have been
mostly estimates, but the following is
the result of inquiry:
T. B. Boyd, store and stock, $4,000,
besides the manuscript of o book; no

B. Griffith, $3,000; no insurance.
Mrs. Ostendorf, $1,500; no insurance.
S. Dibble, $200; no insurance.
Wo call attention to the advertise
ment of J. N. Robson Esq., in an
other column, and also to the fact
that he has reduced the price of his
Soluble Pacific to $46 cash, and his
Acid Phosphate to $30 cash and $35.
Nothing pays better than high
manuring. Now is the time to buy,
and Mr. Robson is the man to buy
from. Mr. Robson also requests us
to state that on all sales this season
the overcharge will be refunded on
application to him.
A Voice from the Jail
OnAXOEBURO Jail, January 4, 1875.
2o the Editor of the Nein and Courier:
I Bee in your issue of January 2d, 1875,
a letter frum B. Williamson, wherein he
attempts to defend T. C. Andrew?. I can't
expect Williamson to defend me, for the
reason that Andrews is his brother-in-law,
but 1 desire to say'a few words in annwer to
The people of Orangeburg know Andrews,
they know Williamson and they knew me,
and they believe that 1 have been robbed by
this "honest" Senator. In his card Wil
liamson denies that I was made to employ
him. If Williamson will show the agree
ment I was made to sign in his prenence, it
will be seen that Andrews was to have the
manipulation of the State and county taxes,
and that Williamson was to receive a salary
for services; and that Williamson was to
keep the agreement as a third party. That
Williamson was to pay one month's salary
and Andrews one month's salary to an as
sistant. This paper Williamson took out of
my sale in February last, and carried to his
house. It is true that I was told to watch
Williamson, and the leta he says about oth
ers who were in my office the hett?r.
Williamson took charge of the money when
1 was absent.
Now about that shameful store account.
1 again assert tho truth of what 1 am re
ported by the News and Courier as having
said. Andrews' tax receipts were given
from the collection certificates, and the stubs
are not in Williamson's possession, but,
what is more to the point, Williamson'*
handwriting i) upon the back of oach col
lection certificate. Ko rauch for Andrews'
Another victim comes to the rescue of
Senator Andrem?the local editor of the
Orungc'uurg Newt. But il falls r.ith ill
grace from him. Has he not been hers to
jail to me trying to get me to make an ex
pose o( the affair? When he says that An
drews helped to build me up, lie makes a
mistake. He should havo said he was the
means of breaking me down. If the local
editor of the Orangeburg Newt knows as
much as he pretends to know, why in Heav
en's name don't he tell it.
In conclusion, let me say that Andiews
cannot make a denial of the charges'against
him by threatening to convict me. He can
only save himself by withholding the preof.
I trust in the Divine Providence, if I am to
be convicted, to give me power before that
time comes, to exposo this "honest" senator,
who, in view of his- age, experience ana
politics, should have been an advisor to me,
and not the means of ruin. While I am
lying in jail in mid winter, 8enator An*
drews is at his fireside with his family, and,
in the face of this, the Ornngcburg Newt has
the heart to say that Andrews built me up.
When the trumpet of the court is sounded,
and Senator Andrews makes bin reply, I
will be ready to meet him.
