DESTRUCTIVE CONFLAGRATION From the Lexington Telegraph we take the following in reference to the fire of Friday, the I 9th inst. The loss on that day. in Lexington District- alone, is estimated at $150,000. and Over. We learn, that our citizens in the neighbor hood of Beaverdam creek and Rocky creek, cov ering a scope of country above the village of about 10 or 11 miles suffered severely-matnv of whom lost even their clothing. The whole of their houses, corn, fodder, provisions and cat tie were destroyed. Great indeed is the calami ty, and much distress and Rutfering will be the result. At is impossible for us to give a minute descriptinn (it the losses of each person, but we subjoin a list of a portion of those who have been the greatest sufferers: Mr. F. 'W.

It .ealls loudly for the sympathies and liberality of our fellow citizens throughout the State; and we would earnestly appeal to them in behalf of the people of our District, who are now desti tute, homeless and in want. WE find the followiung extract of a letter in the Augtusta Constitntionalist. It relates to sitmilar disatsters, as recorded above, in our owtn District. " BEdc IsL.ND, S. C. March 9. 4 lIt.

About onte hundred cords of railroad wood at the satme place was coinsumied, and the railroad slightly injtried. I hear of no part of the country that has not suffered latrgely by the burning of fen cesl." THE fire in Barnwell District.--The Barnwell Sntinel of the 10th inst., says :-We regret to learn that a fire broke out yesterday about 11 o'clock, A. M. Ott the plantation of Mr. Wood, near this place. It extended with irresistible fury over his large plantation, and it was with gre .t difficulty that his dwellintg was saved from the devouring flames. in its rapid flight, it reached the plantation of Hon. J. Duncan Allen, and his residence, tostether with his magnificent firniture, was entirely destroyed. lie also lost a splendid carriage, and a large quantity of pro. visions. IT is seldom that we are called upotn to record such fearful destruction. THE Newberry Sentmzel furnishes the follow. ing.-In this Dist'rict, Mr. Stewart, Chapman, Boozer, and Rikard, together with many others, have suffered severely by the burning of fencing and in some instattces of houses. Accounts como to us from all parts of the district, and we cannot, so general has it been, given but a meagre account of its devastation and hatvoc. WE regret to .learn Says the Lexington Telegruph that the Dwelling and out buildings of Col. Thos. B3. Clarksoo, of Richland District, situaed on his plantatiotn called Middleberg, on the WVateree IRiver, near Clarkson's Turn Out, was destroyed 'by fire, ott Friday last, the flames communicating from the adjacent woods, which have been for some days on fire. The Dwelling and outbuiLinugs were uninsured, and loss esti ated at from seven to eight thousand dollars. We regret to state, also, that Col. J. J. Chap pel1. of Richland District, lost a negro woman by thte fire; and 3Jr. Wright Denley, of the ,..... .srict.. h..d a negro c hildi burn t to death. FIRE IN GREENVILLE DISTRICT.-W e regret to learn that the well known house, of -Mr. Davis Hodges, about twenty-four miles from Green ville C. H., on the Asheville road, was destroygi by fire on Friday last. The woods in the vicini ty were on fire, but whether the house was burn ed by fire from the woods or a spark from the chimney, we are not accurately informed. At the same time the residence of Mr. 1. Dickey, near Mr. Hodges, was also burned. Mr. Hod ges loss, we have heard estimated at six or eight thousand dollars. We understand most of his furniture was saved, Mr. Dicky's loss we have not heard stated. Mr. Hodges loss is also a loss to the travel ling community, to whom his housQ was so fa vorably known as a pleasant resting place. Greenville Mountaineer. VE learn from the Winnsboro' Register, that a fire occurred in that town on Friday last, which destroyed the dwelling and out buildings, belonging to Maj. James Elit'tt. Dr.ATIf FRoM: TinE SToits.-We regret to learn that a young lady, a daughter of Mr. J. Mabrey, living in the neighborhood of Feaster ville, was struck on Friday last by the limb of a falling tree, and on Saturday died from the effects. This is- one of the most melancholy incidents that we have yet heard in connection with that long to be remembered day.-Winns boro Register. ARTHUR SIMKINS, EDITOR. EDGEFIELD, S. C.

WE are delighted to see our venerable and beloved Senator, Judge BUTLEit, again at home in his usual fine health. Our representativg Col. BRooxs, has also (as we learn) reached his residence in the upper part of the District. We wish for both Senator and Representative a pleasant vacation. Business Notices. WE beg leave to call public attention to some of our home advertisers. There is, first, M. Ln.EscnUILz, who keeps at No. 2, Park Row, one of the best Clothing Stores in the State. He has just received a highly fashionable lot of Goods for the season, made up with unusual care. The fact is, LEDscHULTz is a man of taste; and our community may consider themselves form. nate in having amongst them one wI o twill keep up nith the times. RoBEaT H. SULLIvAN also advertises the receptirn of new goods. The SULLITvANS have been in Edge field for years, and their reputation, as men of busi ness and probity, is well established.-J. B. has now retired from the business; but Boa still stands at the old post, and the people of Edgefield couldn't do a better thing, in the mercantile way, than patronise his bran new establishment. So much for home folks. Now for one or two alln sions to our out-side customers. There's the firm of D.twsos &SiINNEt, Augusta, Ga. They keep on the Corner next adjoining the Gobe Hotel. Trhat'.< chere they keep. But u-hat they keep, it would he entirely too eious to mention. Suffice it to say that they keep everything in the.ir line. DAwsox & SKINNEa's is the best Family Gro cery Swge we know of at this time. Let us furthermore call the reader's attention to the advertisement of Messrs. HIics3ItN; WVEstco-r- & Co., Dry Goodls 3Merchants, also of Atugusta. They are new patrons of ours, but well known itt Augusta s ranking high among thteir compeers. Graduated. .

That Singing Ctasa. WEst were much pleased the other evening to hear the admirable performances of thme singittg dlass now uder training in our village. They evidenced capa city on the part of thme scholars and ability ott the part of Mr. InvuNG, the teacher. One of the alto voices and several of the sopranos promise finely. Tihe class is tot yet as strong as it shmoutd be. Bitt, altogether the class has certainly progressed rapidly. The Court. NEvEn have we had in Edgefield a more quiet, or derly, genteel session of the Court of Comnmon leas than the one just past. If there was thte first scratcht it the way of a ftghtt, wv: are not engnisatnt of it. This is a .circumstance which the " oldest inhabitant" says is unprecedented in the history of Edge field. Whether this be owing to the improving temtperance of the day, or to the hardness of the times, renmains to be decided. The business of thme Court. tunder the skilful surveil lance of his Honor, Judge Gt.ovEtt, was carried ont smoothly antd in a nmanner sat-isfactory to all concern ed as it cottld we.ll be. Among the foreign counsel presens during the 1erm we observed AsoaEwv J. MIILLER Esq. of Augusta, and Hon. A. BrT, of Abbeville. Our docket was a very large one andl many cases were er necessitate positponed. Becautifutl Weather. WE have now prevailing most lovely Spring weath er. The birtds are chirping merrily, the blossoms are opening gaily, the zephtyrs are whispering softly, and all nature is " redolent of joy and youth." Farmers are full of business-stirring, healthful, delighitfuj business. 31en and women every where are feeling the sap rise in their systems. From the plowboy's whistle tip to the very music of thme spheres, every thing tells a tale of hiarmnony and ecstasy. Glahmdscme Spring ! we welcome thee, and all thy "rosy-bosomn'd Hours !" Thou art dear alIke to age and to youth, to the free and the enslaved; to health andl to disease ; for thou bringest healing and delight upon thy " dew bespangledl wings." Who does not admire thy vermieil cheeki Who does not yield to the spell of thy genial inauences ? And who cant fail to go int thought be yond thy lovely attributes, and thank Hint who directs thy comitng and endows thee with all thy radiant chtarms! Qtteer Comsfort. WE heard from a frietnd this eveining, says the " Knickerbocker" editor, a bit of ' consolation' tender ed to a culprit who had been found guilty of the high eat crime known to the law, which struck us as about the most impotent and indefinite thtat cotuld well be offered him. Hie had just been convicted of wilful murder ; and when asked if he had anything to ad vance against his immediate sentence so death, lie burst into a flood of tears, atid in incoherent, agoni zing words, besought the mercy of the Court. The sympathy of all present, including the Court, was ex cited by his anguish; but he wvas sentenied to be hanged, notwithistanidinig, at an early day nanmed. While lie was exlthiimg a perfect paroxysm of grief,jthis counsel also began to weep; and putting his hand on his shoulder, said : " Bear up, my dear fellow, bear up! They've sentenced you to be hung, to be stire, and you'll be hung, without doubt ; but it tiiLl be the worst day they ever saw !" How the counsel arrived at this inference, or what there in it especially cheer ing to the prisoner, didn't exactly appear to the satis faction of our friend ; but vague as it was, it dried the murlerer's tears, and he was carried to his cell in a cmpaativeyalenim state. Political. WE have nothing political to say this week, except that Congress has idjourned, and Sebastopol Is not yet taken and the acquisition of Cuba according to the predictions of certain fillibusters is no go, and Mr Oaa's speech on the French Spoliation bill has met with large acceptance throughout the State of South Carolina, and the Know Nothings seems to be running out, and there is just now a temporary calm in the sea of Federal Politics, and some say that the waves will rise again towards Fall to the serious endanger ing of the Ship of State, and Northern Freesoilers are striving to swell the number of their party in Kansas into a majority (which nobody believes they can do,) and President PiEncE is receiving a "Well donegood and faithful" from the country at large an account of his two celebrated vetoes of the past session of Con gress, and (shocking, shocking, shocking,) the distin guished Czar, the Emperor of all the Russians is said to be dead; and if there is any thing else of note, we do not recall it at this moment. Condensed Items. gg WE have received the " Atlanta Republi can," edited and published by J.is. K. SMrn. The " Repudican" appears to be a very interesting sheet, and we cheerfully place it on our exchange list. IT BILL POOLE, the noted Pugilist of N:W York, died on the 8th, in consequence of the wounds received in the late row, which has excited so much attention. A tremendous demonstration occurred at his funeral, in New York, on Sunday. He was a member of the Order of United Americans. There were over 100 carriages and upwards of eighty thous I and spectators in the procession. gg GREEN PEAS were enjoyce at the Mills House," Charleston, on Friday last.

Ig* TnE snow drifts down at Plymouth, says the Boston Post, of the 13th inst., are eight or ten feet leep. t?

I ' TuE Ashville Ncews entertains no doubt but that $1,500,000 can be raised in the counties of Hen. derson. Buncombe and Madison to aid in the* con struction of the French Broad Rail Road. It is pro posel to hold a convention at Asheville early in tI-e spring to consider the subject. t'TniE Rev. 31r.

TEN DAYS LATER FROM EUROPE. NEW YORK, MARCA 14, 1855. The steamer Pacific has arrived, bringing Liverpool dates of February 27. The Union had arrived out, but the Africa had not at tie time the Pacific sailed. Messrs. Gladstone, Herbert, and. Graham had resigned their positions in the English Ministry, owing to the passage of Roebuck's motion of inquiring into the management of the war. The Cabinet had been remodeled. Thero was noth. ing new from Sebastopol. It was reported that Lord Raglan had re.sign ed, and Lord Lucan been recalled. The Vienna Conference will be opened in a few days, and all parties express a desire for peace. Rumor gives Lord Elgin a seat in the cabinet, and Earl Carlisle the Viceroyslhip of Ireland. The nw Chancellor of the Exchequer is Mr. Lewis, an untried main. In matters relating to the war the members of the Government express the hope that pend ing negotiations may lead to an honorable peace, though warlike measures continue to be prose cuted throughout Europe. Louis Napoleon seems determined to proceed to the Cirmen, notwithstanding England and Austria's advice that he should remaina at home. Russia has declared ivar against Sardinia. It, is reported, though not conirmned, that Tuscany has joined the Western powers. Na. ples has not. It is officially announced by the allies that on the 17th Gen. Liprandi, with 40,000 Russians and 70 guns, attacked the Turks under Omer Pasha at Eupatoria. The battle histed four hours, whean the Russians were compelled to retire with the loss of 400 men. Lord Raglan, it is reported, will resign. In conisequence of the severe winter in Eng land, great distress existed among the laboring population, and many riots of a serious nature had taken place in Liverpool and London. A favorable change in the weather, however, had taketn place, and ships were coming in rapidly. This will, in a measure, reduce the discontent, by giving employment to the disall'eeted. Joseph Hume, it is stated, is dead. LtvEnl'ooL, Febuary 27, 18.55. Thme sales of cotton durinig the lanst teln days have been 61.900 bala~t -8&. declinie. Hiol-. ders were anxious to realine.

TE SUFFEINGS IN THtE CRlI.tE.-The allied soldiers in the Crimea haive been congratulatiing themaselves on the termination of inter, whlen their sutlferings, they hope, will cease. But, fromn all neounats there will only be a change from one form of suffering to another, for as soon as the wairm weather and thme spring rains commnenee, the atnimal decomposition from the mnltitudes of dead bodies of men and hoarsesa lying tunburied will spread pestilence through the camnp, which will depopulate it faster thani sickness is now doing.

A MoR~loN PAPER.--Thoa normonts have com. menced, in New York, the putblication of a paper, called the Mormon, devoted to the spread of their principles. It defends polygamy as an or dinance from God, the Christian world having beeni laboring under a delusion on this subject foer overt eighteen hundred years. Mahomme danismi is in danger of extinction on thte Easternt Continet. It would be a little dangerous if it shuld spring up in full force on the Western Co- mentn. THE NEW BOUNTY LMD LAW. The Commissioner of Pensiotis hits issued the following instructions for carrying into effect the Bounty Land law: " Where the service has been rendered by a substitute, he is the person entitled to the ben. efit of this act, and not his employer. " In the event of the death of any person who, if living, would be entitled to a certificate or warrant as aforesaid, leaving a widow, or if no widow, a minor child or children, such widow, or if no widow, such minor child or children, is entitled to a certificate or warrant for the same quantity of land such deceased persons would be entitled to receive under the provisions of said act, if now living. " A subsequent marringe will not impair the right of any such widow to such warrant if she be a widow at the time of her application. Per sons within the age of twenty-one years on the 3d day of March, 1855, are deemed minors with in the intent and meaning of said act. "'To obtain the benefits of this let, the claim ant must make a declaration, under oath, sub. stantially, according to the forms hereto annex ed. The signature of the applicant must be at tested, and his or her personal identity establish ed by the aflidavits of two witnesses, whose residences must be given, and whose credibility must be sustained by the certificate of the mag istrato before whom the application Is verified. " No certificates will be deemed sufficient in any ese unless the facts are certified to be within the personal knowledge of the magistrate or other officer who shall sign the certificate, or the names and residence of the witnesses by whom the facts are established be given, or their allidavits, properly authenticated, be appended to the certificate. " The official character and signature of the magistrate who may administer the oath must be certified by the clerk of the proper court of record of his county, under the seal of his court. Whenever the certificate of the officer who authenticates the signature of the magistrate is not written on the same sheet of paper which certificate must be attached to said paper by a piece of tape or ribbon, the ends of which must pass under the official seal, so as to prevent any paper from being improperly attached to the certificate. "Applications in behalf of minors should be made in their names by their guardian or next friend. Where there are several minors entitled to the same gratuity, one may make the decla ration. The warrant will be issued to all joint ly. In addition to proof of service, as in other cases, the mindr must prove the death of his father, that no widows survives him and that he and those lie represents are the only minor chil dren of the deceased. "If a party die before the issue of a warrant to which he would be entitled, if living, the right to said warrant dies with him. In such case the warrant becomes void, and should be cancelled, and the party next entitled in right of the service claimed should make an application; and if there be no such party, the grant lapses under the limitation (if the beneficiaries to the bounty. If the claimant die after the issue of the warrant, the title thereto vests in his heirs at law in th same manne'r as re:l estate in the place of the domicile of the deceased, and car only b.j as signed or loeated by said heirs. Applications made by Indians must be au thenticated according to the. regulations to be prescribed by the commissioner of indian afliirs. th Accompanying tihe above instructions are the necessary forms of declaration, together with an official copy of the law. CALIFORNIA MATTERS. The Charleston Courier has beetn favored with the subjoined extract f:-om a letter dated Napa City, California, the 13th ultimno: "We have had the coldest winter this year ever known' in California since the change of flag, mid very little rain has fallen ; comparative ly, however, thus fir there has been a sificiency for tihe farmers, and should this sensor hold out as it has commenced, the result will be very fine grain crop,. To give you a sample of the weatther at present, I amn writing in a room waih two doors amnd a window, these are all opetn, and I tind it very comtfortable. " There is no loenl news of any interest going about at present ; the country seems as a general thn ueexcept that Jtndge Lyoch seems to be acquiritng inore extenaded jurisdiction. I think that during the past mnotth throughout the State there were some nitne cases of hanging un dcr the Ameriennt system. This statte ot things is itndeed deplorable, but in some cases seems to he unavoidable. This count ry is itnfested with a set of~ reckless, Godless, gra..less and good for nothing metn, tuo indolent to word or pursue atny legitimate craft or business. The result is that thtey game, steal and swindle, and in some parts of the country w'here the law oif the land has proved inef~eetual or fntled to reach these fellows, the people hatve thought to adltmiistet justice by this sumtmary tmethod of punishment. I cannot, of course, justify their course, but tink that condemnation otught tnot to be bes towed without reflection. "Business is very dull here still ; aproperty has de preciated in value a gooid deal, consequent. ly everything is dull; however, I don't thmink thamt the indication is agaitnst the prosperity of thte country ats many argtne. The facet of thte matter is, thatfor the last live or six years the resources of this country han~ve been envelo ed most rapid ly, anid so far as its advamntages are concrend it ratks with most of the older States. Now, what we want is population ; the population of the en tire State is not more than that of' the city of Phlilatdelphiat, consequment ly lab'or is very high and entirely c:mntrols eapital. P'eople are now becoming alive to the importancte of this fact. Business in all its depatrtmecnts htas beetn overdone ton much, and it will probably take two yeamrs for the country to recover,,after wicth we will, in my opinion, again see a similar de gree of prosperity as existed some years past." From thme South Carolinian. PosT t ETIures.--'The circular of the P'ost mster Getneral, issued on the 9th of Marcb, says: "From and amfter thme first day of April prepavment otn letters is [will be] required." Persons, therefore, who write letters in their own behalf atnd expect answers, which benetit themselves alone, ought to imitate, it seemus, the cutmnwprevailing in Europe, which consists in enclosing, on such occasions, stamped envel opw, addressed to th'e writers themselves. IThere are some people who think it abnoost tmenn thus to indicate that thme writer desires to satve his correspondent the expednse of three centts. We believe this is erroneotus. WVe know a catse where :t courtier told Queen Victoria that she owed hitm a shilling from the previous night's whist playing, and she ordered it to be paid. In olden times it was considered impolite by some persons to pre-pay any let ter; but we are less formal. It is now hek'd "hy3 the best authorties" to beo truly civil to see till trilling debts squared. Would it were considered civil, too, to pay all large debts! \Ve would beg editors to copy thmis now chap ter of " mittor morals." LETTER BAG. GENERtAL QUiAN.-LThe Washington cor respondetnt 6f the New York Journal of Coin ierce states that Gen. Quitman, being advised ot the revolutiotiary proceedittgs in Cuba, and entertainitig the opinion that the revolution would be successful, catme on to WVashmigtoni, expecting to finmd Congress and the admstra tion all itn a blaze about Cuba. He took it for granted, it is said, thtat the President would re conise the popular movement in Cuba, and reommend to Congress the repeal of the neu trlity laws. He was disappointed in his expec. tatins of 'lhe President and Cabinet and Con gress. H-ad thme tieutrality law been repealed, says the correspondetnt, General Quitman would have put himself at the head of a very formida ble forcn in th is country, perhaps fifteen thotu sand taco, well armed and equipped-a force armed wvith Sharp's rifles-and a force that would go, not to be beaten, btt to conquer. But this game is up. The fleets of England and France are postea Iup around Cuba, ready to aid in crushing insur. lrection or repelling invasion. We have the "naih Ied powers" at our own doors. gg Tutsy htave already begun to make mapki ugar in some of the intcrior towns of Massachtusettu, the trees yielding t'neir " liquid sweetness" more and ...r --r...y ach day as the season advances. ROlM WABHfGTOW. WASHINGTON, March 1855. I have learned from the Russian embassy here that no expectations are entertained at St. Petersburg of peace being concluded in the course of the ensuing summer. The hopes de rived from the Vienna conference have, there. fore, a slender foundation. I understand that there are upwards of 300,000 Russian troops in the Crimea, between Sebastopul and Perekop, and 40,000 at the other side of the isthmus, within a short distance of it. The Russian gov ernment will never make peace unless the prin. ciple demands urged by Menschikoti'at Constan tinople are agreed upon, and the Greek Church placed in all respect upon the sane footing as the Latin. There is one condition, if it be insisted upon by the allies, upon which Russia wiil remnain firm, and that is with regard to the reduction of her navy. She will increase rather than dimin ish the amount of her naval force. With regard to the abandonment of Sebastopol, from what I can learn, no great obstacles will be offered to such a stipulation-that is provided that Russiv be properly indemnified for the sacrifice. Hei readiness to concede this point is explained by the fact that the Emperor has fur a long time past entertained the project of fortifying Kaffi or Theodosia, which lies directly across the pen. Insula, towards the south, and is Intended to be the terminus of the Mpscow Railroad. The fortifications to be erected here will be stronger than those of Sebastopol, and will in other res. pects be more reliable from their contiguity to the Cireassian coast. From what I have heard at the embassy, there is no doubt as to the fact of the President's hav. ing received an autograph letter from the Czar. The letter did not, it is true, contain any poli.ti. cal information; it was merely of a complimen. tary character, and gave expression to the friend. ly feelings entertained by the Emperor toward, this country. It confirmed, however, the report of important disclosures having-been madt through the Russian embassy to our govern. ment. All the former accounts of the impor. tance of these disclosures are substantially cor. rec!, and may now be positively aflirmed.-New York Herald THE CoST OF THE WAR.-The English Gov. ernment contemplates having engaged in the.w during the opening year, no less than 263,591 men of aji ranks in both services, land and sea, and that the sum necessary to support and ren der efficient this body of men and the ships to be manned by them, for a single year, will be more than one hundred and thirty-eight millions of dollars.
