THE ACADEMY BUILDING OJ
Hard nud Successful Work?Little Da
mage?Cause of Fire.
Last Thursday. 14th of March, about noon
while Miss White's school was in session
i... \ Vaidemv so mo smirks of fi ro
I 'were blown it. to tne sohool-room,and before
tile astonishment caused could express itself
a little boy, one of the pupils, rushed in with
the starlliug announcement tlmt the schoolliouse
was a lire. This announcement was all
the more startling because on that mild and
pleasant morning there was no need for tire
in the stove. Instantly the school-room was
vacated and all rushed out into the open air.
It was discovered that the belfry?a ;woodcn
structure?was on tire, smoke was Issuing
from It, and Jets of flame were bursting out
here and there. The alarm of fire was soon
spread through the town by ringing of bells
und loud cries. The Democratic Convention
at that hour sitting In the Court House, heard
the alarm, and forthwith and informally adjourned
and rushed en waste to the scene of
danger. Abbeville possesses no tire engine,
for the good and sufficient reason that she has
no system of cisterns and pumps. The only
means possessed by our town for conquering
n tire isa Babcoek's Extinguisher. The little
cxtcngtilshcr was promptly brought to
the burning Academy, and under able and
experienced management it did most excellent
service. Thanks to the brick walls and
the roof of tin, the Arc had not as yet spread
beyond the wooden belfry. Jew Peter, colored,
to whom for his hard and daring work
nil praise Is due, had used his head as a battering
ram and forced a way through celling,
smoke, and tlameand made his appearance
011 the roof, which is comparatively flat.
For a little while his position seemed to be a
very dangerous one; for the Actidcmy isa
high, two-story building, and the only means
of descent was In flames. By the help of a
long ladder the hose of the extinguisher was
handed to the negro, and he played It well
n...i Rv nonrinir Its iras-eharged
wnter on the flaming belfry lie kept the Unlit
eheck and within n limited area. Meanwhile
a still longer bidder had been brought,
and several men white and colored climbed
up on the roof and formed a chain on the
ladder to hand up palls of water. I.lttle miffs
of urnoke with occasional tongues of name
were ?eeu spurting out around tlie eaves from
under the tin roof 011 the Southern side. At
Right of these many nave up their hopes of
*avlng the building, for a very high wind was
Mowing, and despite the unwearied exertions
of those on the ground the supply of water
was not very abundant. The brave little extinguisher
was doing good work, however,
and axe* and levers were being plied assiduously
to send the burning belfry down. Hv
sheer pluck, hard work, and perseverance,
which were displayed by colored men as well
*k by whin* men. the Arc was at last itrousm
thoroughly under control, and the building
saved from destruction. The belfry was completely
destroyed, but its destruction does
not materially affect the value of the Academy.
It Is computed that apart from that, the
damage caused by the tire old not cxcecd two
hundred dollar*. The building Is not inmired.
The origin of the Arc is most extraordinary.
It seem* that the poilceman had been superIntending
H squad of workmen who were
repairing the roads, and he bad set tin" to an I
old itump at a little distance from the Acude- j
my. The walls of brick and roof of tin would
i'*m to be a good protection at any time even
when a high wind Is blowing. Hut a tree
n?Ttrer the building caught tire, and the wind }
blew some burning embers In the dlr"ction of J
the belfry. Though covered with tin. Its
cornices and nupi>orts were of wood, and a
sparkof Are lodging In a decayed beam was
soon binned Intotlame.
The Academy l* the property of Thomas C.
rerrin, Esq., whose magnificent mansion on
the inme lot was destroyed by lire Just thirteen
month* ago. For some time It was feared
that th-e strong wind would carry burning
ember* far enough to endanger houses' in the
neighborhood and precautious were taken,especially
at Mrs. Norwood's, to prevent any
extension of fire. Fortunately the flames i
were confined to the limited area of the Acad-1
*mjr belfry. Had llic whole nnmung oeen i
destroyed, the dnnger brother property would :
have been very great.
Our townsmen work willingly and well ntn !
Are; and our colored citizen k are not behind'
the white* in engaging in the iiurd, unpaid,,
and often dangcruu* wort.

who since lH.'tS or '40, when he was banished '

have no possible sympathy, simply because it"
it catleu upon Congress lo contribute froin J

such immigrants; that lie had friends and et|
relatives in France, Italy, Poland and through- is
out Southern Kurope, who were anxious to T1
emigrate to the southern States, who were
accustomed to growing small grain, raising

wine, pickles, cliow chow, and canned fruits, . '
and that these people only wanted an opening ..

their families and ell'oets and settle in any I

We snugested to this enthusiastic old pin-1.,
neerthc idea of calling his Association to-,''1
gethcr and invite Southern representative "!
men to address them upon the Inducements rl'
to migrate Southward, ile accepted our )>roposition,
and were the tirstSouthorner invited ,
to address the assemblage. We accepted the
invitation, appeared helorc the Association,
and placed before them the advantages and
disadvantages of Soulh Carolina as a home
for the industrious, frugal man. whether lie
he laborer, cultivator, harvester, husbandman
or mechanic. .T1
In the course of our ' ftr,a|'ks we suggested d<
the selection by the Association of three of M
its representative men, who should be sent to m
South Carolina, to travel over the State, sec in
and learn for themselves, and report to the et
Association on their return. Mr. Bryan, the j n
Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of nc
the District of Columbia, (which is equivalent j w
to the Governor of the District,) was present, I tu
urged this recommendation in a forcible w
speech, promised to give assistance, and ad-lw
vised the e-dl of an adjourned meeting a week | a
from that time, at which meetingotherSouth- se
ern men would be invited to be present, and j fa
when a vubscrlptlon would he started to de- M
fray the expenses of the above committee to; u
South Carolina. The meeting will take place, hi
that committee will be appointed, and they tl
will go to South ('arolina on a tour of obser-| li
vation. They will probably appear in South I
Carolina early In April, at a time when the
whole land appears most beuutilul to the vis-! C
Nothing more tiian this can be done at this
riltl oi till' line. \\ IliU will Lie nunc- m ramiu I
Carolina to induce tills committee to report I ir
liivnrubly and probably encourage tlie migra- )

movement by Rlviag to this association por-jt>(
tlons, if it i>e alternate sections of but a lew ] tl
acres, to encourage immigration to the State? j
What will our cities, towns, and villages do?
Cannot the municipal authorities at least arrange
to have this committee inspect their n
counties free of cost? Will not the farmers 'jand

1). McCabe, an author well known for his his- J
torical writings, who haft devoted years oI
study and research to the production of this K|
volume. The book is literally a library In
itself, and is one of the most valuable works r
| ever ottered to the public. It presents to the t>

A letter from W. K. Blake. Kscj., of Green- ^
| wood, K. C., appears in tin- Chronicle and 0>n-1 I
ititiUioiiuli^t this morning, giving an account' V
of the condition and prospects of the Green-1 *
.1 wo<id branch of the Augusta and Knoxvillc
Railroad. At a meeting of the stockholders
of the company held at Miilway, on the 8th j
I inst.. it was determined to increase t he force j j
of laborers now employed on the work with
the view of finishing the road to the Savan- (]
nab river within a short time. Since the war j
all the railroads In the South have have been I j
^ j built with paper instead of money, on credit i
' | instead of with cash. Therefore, the intelli- T
" | genee that the Greenwood line is being con- jA
I struetcd on a purely cash basis is as pleasant
| as it is surprising. Twelve miles of the road .
! have been graded and every foot of the work "
has been paid for as last as completed. Nor
' has the corporation borrowed a cent of money
to make these payments. The people along
; the line desired railway connection with the
' Augusta market, and they have put their "
handsin their pockets and paid for what they
\ j wanted. Mr. Blake says the road from Green- <
' wood to the Savannah will be finished before
1 the line from Augusta reaches the river.
" Tliis is a fair challenge to a friendly trial of
" energy and public spirit. Let our Georgia
" friends accept it in the spirit in which it is t
1! offered and do their best to wjn the race. 1
Augusta, especially, has a great deal at stake <
on the construct ion of this road, and must
1 i not fail to do her whole duty. The South Car- .
"jolinians have more than fulfilled their
" pledges, and we must show them, not by
^ promises, but by performance, that, we intend 1
J j to redeem ours to the letter.?Augusta Chruni- ]

Is no wonder that our children, frienJh and
