From every quarter of our District is
coinidg in the news of' " re ! tire !" while
fronm all the adjoining Districts the "o tid
is eclied and re-echoied.
On'Friday Isi, the inforimation of " fire
in the woods " first reached uts, when it
was discovered that it was rapidly extend
ing itself towards our village from the
North. For a time it was. thought Ihat
the village was in considerable danger,
o% inig to the high . wind, which blew a
perfect gale from tlidct dirdction,' but
through the exertions of a number of citi.
zens, who went out, the danger was
averted from us. The fire spread rapidly,
however, far and wide throughout the
country, destroying a great deal of prop
erty and doing a great dcni of injuryto qur
farncers. A grbat iiny of 1-hemn have
lost nore or less of .t heir fenecmg, some
their iarns anut stables. aid. in a few in
staices their dwelling houses.
Mr. G. W. BRAD)olRD, we are sorry to
learn, lhad soen t., ecty head of sliCep

had taken refuge.
St. Paul's Church', situated in the lower
part of the District, we hear is burnt to
the ground. The fire h1;s been c'ry
where. Up to this date, 13h, the who'c
country has been cnvelopcd in a perfect
cloud of smoke, since Saturday morning.

Afessrs. Editors: You have seen in

which took place ont tire Neirth Easterni

inl ColImbia. at tihe tiie application
was rMa c to Governior Adams for all
exercise of his authority inl quellinig
this petty rebellion. It seems that
some Germian laborers had landed in
Charleston, and tire Irish who were
already on tire Nort EasTertn Road,'
show 2d soni viilent manifestations
towards their newly arrived rivIls for
work. The Irish were prevented from
aiy violenrce at the tiie, but merely
desisted for tire time declaring what
they would do whein they go) their
Sivals oi the road. Accordingly to
prevent the Get tmais,. by rtifice, from
utking part, in the wor which tiey
wished to monopolize, they proteided
to strike for wages, frmiiing their for.

an Irish and a German Constab .e, and
also a Catihlic priest, with the iope
t.lhat they might bo itilrmied as to tire
conisequences of their conduct and
yield to the authority of law. But the
rebellionists refused to be arrested. .
At that that tige of tire disorderly
conduct, C0. Ilayne, who had left
Ciarleston in the ieaniwhile, was
telegri apfred to, that, lie irght, preseint
tmatter to tihe Goveinor. He did
so; and the Gover ior very promptly
despatched orders to Maj. General
Sehnierie to call out cite Company of'
Rillemen, one of Dragoois, and, if
necessary, a Company of lIfanrtry and
Flying Artilery. .From thle nie wspa.
