? 15 ffiiyaro**, M.y H?10 p. *
Evftiimifliiiil yaimore, accompanied by
th? H?n. J. P. Kennedy, arrived here in
tl.eSlcMier Kllrth Carolina this morning
firm NoilMfc.' He is the guest of Mr.
Kennedy. I learn that the committee
of anangements have appointed to-mer
row at twelve o'clock to receive their
<*:&tioguit>hed guest in the rotundo of the
Matfchsmte' Exchange. He will there re
vive and interchange congratulations
^ Ith his friends. Mr. Kennedy may
probably not be present, as his wife is
very in. A very large concourse of per
sons will no doubt assemble on the occa
sion.
The current of events seems to be run
ning strongly towards placing Mr. Fill
more in the field as a candidate for the
Presidency in 1856. There is, perhaps,
no man in our country, at present, who
possesses more friends. Even political
n vm^nts respect him highly, and if a
man differing from them in politics
should, in the nature of things, be elevated
1o the Presidential chair, there is none
whom they would rather see occupy it than
Millard Fillmore. There is one question,
however, which must be satisfactorily
solved by the candidates of the approach
ing ntional content?that is, how they
str.-'u r.pon the "Know Nothing" plat
form ? This will be an important ele
ment in politics hereafter. It will give
" Young America" a hard tug. Stick a
pin here.
Mr. Fi1!more will remain in our city,
probably, until Tuesday. It is uncertain
about las visiting Washington.
T observe that ouK worthy postmaster,
r ?' "Oavies. has returned from his trip
v . icS ith. much improved in health
t ?.? 'u^r.ing extremely well.
j *1 eve I have no more projected
igt- to note, as being immediately
die tapis. Quite a brilliant one was
^.lemni/.ed not a long time ago, and cur
rent rumor has it that the groom was
V~ad comfortably quartered the next
. .oming at one of our hotels, the bride
* left solus.
Vfi te a destructive fire broke out at 4
*?<,ock this morning in the extensive lum
pier yard of Mr. Hugh McEldery. Light
street wharf, consuming the largest part
of it- Also, the warehouse occupied by
Mr. J. M. Mures, Mr. Dorsey's store, the
x. store of Mr. J. T. Travers, and the
iurge tobacco store of Mr. Isaacs. The
total loss is probably ?40,000, pretty
generally covered by insurance.
I learn that Mr. Luckett, proprie
?? Overton," advertised in your pa
., has already received rna^y applica
ons from capitalists in regard to his
operty. It is certainly a moat desira
< le place, and must command a large
j -ice
It is a matter of gratification to note
that the money market is much easier.
S.ocks are also more buoyant, and prices
L:e a^aia going up.
v e have had quite a warm day, and
: . ^:csent there are indications of a re
freshing shower. Roderick.
A Bf.ttf.ti Max teas ras Brother.
The Philadelphia Spirit of the Times
vouch-> for the correctness of the follow
ing:
' ?n Than day list a wedding party ar
r ~"d from the country, consisting of the
bride and groom, the brother of the lat
ter and several friends. They put up at
ci*e of ihv public houses, and in the eve
ning ibe preliminaries having been all
tattled, and the clergyman in attendance,
rlie ceremonies were about to begin, when
the groom manifested some dissatisfac
tion- j.uu bride perceiving this, and be
i g high spirited, showed as much inde
j*-nri^nCv' as the lover. In the midst of
confusion which ensued, the bride
}* -om's brother stepped up to the bride
and said: j
??.Since won't marry you, I'll
marry you myself, if you have no objec
tion.''
*OCoue in the least," said the bride;
I always took you for a better man than
yirjr brother, and I am now fully con
*-'ncel of it."
i iif knot was at ot.ee tied, and much
gratification was expressed at the Jinale
affair.
