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. Green's barn, mill and machine
shop; Mrs Catharine Boozer's thresher, barn
and stables; Mr. Joseph Lown's out-buildings;
Mr. Long's mill, dwelling, &c.; Mr. Joseph
Leaphliari's out-buildings, horses and mules; Mrs.
Sopha Leaphart's out-buildings; Mrs. Haltiwan
ger's dwelling and out-buildings; Mr. Henry
Hendrix's thresher, &c.; Mrs. Snelgrove's dwel
ling. &c.; Mr. S. Johnson's barn, negro houses
and fences; Allen Ballentine's dwelling house,
barns and stables; Mrs. M. Dreher's out-houses
and fences-Mrs. D. herself cattglt fire. and
would have been burned .to death, had it not
been for the timely assistance of Mr. Joshua
Kyser-Mr. John Vansant's dwelling house,
kitchen barns, stables and fences; Isaac Van
sant's fences, negro houses and barns, with a
large quantity of corn and fodder; Mr. Joel
Keisler lost every thing, together with his cloth

N. Coleman's barns, out houses and fences; Isa

hogs and cattle; Jrving Hay's dwelling house,
and all the buildings on his place; Win. Sis
.zink's barns, kitchen, stables and provisions;
.t. T. Lorick, Barns, stables, &c.
This has been trtely a deplorable catastrophe
-tarvation and want is the inevitable fate of
anany, unless immediate relief be rendered. 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.

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.

situaed on his plantatiotn called Middleberg, on
the WVateree IRiver, near Clarkson's Turn Out,

communicating from the adjacent woods, which
have been for some days on fire. The Dwelling

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

Read and take warning !
WE are non% sending our accounts to all who are
indebted to us fur subscription to the Advertiscr,
residing out of the limits of this State, with the
earnest hope that all who may receive si id notice
of their indebtedness, will remit the amount as soon
as possible.
tif" Those who do not comply with the abcve
request by the firat day of April next, will POSI
TIVELY be placed upon our " Black List," for
publication as a warning to other Publishers, and
their names immediately erased from our subserip.
tion books.
" We are in earnest, gentlemen-send oil
your dimes promptly and don't compel us to deal
harshly with you.
-Retusrned.
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. .
Wr. notice among the graduates of the Savantnah
edical College for ithe past winter, the name of 3Mr.
ois C. WV. Kr'.YN.aILv, of Edlgelield District.
Elegant.
Ma. Eowts SruEts, our thought ful and generous
Saluda friend, has our profoundest thanks for those
superb, sugar-cured htamns. We have triet one al
ready, and they are " de-li-cm-eus."
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

FOR THE ADvIIaT15s*R.
TO THE ABSENT'
A aIRD hath flown from my wildwood dell,
lMid the orange groves it hath gone to dwell i
Its sweet glad notes are hushed at eve,
And a saddened spell doth the memory leave.
Our hearts are seared, for the brightest here
The ligh t of the home through the fleeting year
Was our summer child, the cherished one,
Who erst to another's heart hath gone.
'Twas in early May when the flowers were young
That the forrest choir her advent sung;
She was sent to gladden our youthf home
As the moonbeams silver the ocean foam.
As an orphan habe, to the eldest born
In its infant helplessness doth turn,
So she turned to me in her trusting love
My early wifehood's household dove.
We'll miss her long from her greenwood home
When the sweet south wind o'er the flourets roam;
Or the summer hearts woo a quiet spell
The dear low voice which we loved so well.
May the golden glow, which virtue owns,
Oer-span her brow, and the treasured tones
By love's bright quivering lyre spun
Embalm the life that just begun.
And when the hallowed tie is riven,
May Angels guide my bird to Heaven;
And her unfettered wing be plumed
Where every darling ti; 's resumed.

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

A MoR~loN PAPER.--Thoa normonts have com.

beeni laboring under a delusion on this subject
foer overt eighteen hundred years. Mahomme

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!

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.

tance of these disclosures are substantially cor.
