FIRE AND Loss OF LIFE,: On Sunday
evening about half past 8 o'clock, whilst
nearly every person was .at church, afire
bioke out in a two story frame building,
built on the foot of William Singer's lot,
in the alley, between Market and Wal
nut streets and immediately opposite
the stable of Mr. George Rudisill, Sr.'
The property is owned by William Sing
er, colored, but was occupied by' John
W. Walker a colored barber. Walker
and his wife having, as they 'thought
fixed-up the fire—put the children to bed
—five in number, and went to' churcli.—
It is said the kitchen contained a barrel
of shavings and that some damp wood
bad been planed at the front of the stove
to dry. The impression is that the wood
caught, and, communicating with the
shavings in the barrel, soon envsloped
the inside of the house in a sheet of fire,
for almost the moment the fire Waii
covered it had progressed •so tar as .to
leave nothing to be done to . save the
building, which notwithstandtfig the , ex
ecution of both fire companies, was soon
burnt to the ground. Three of Walker's
children, aged respectively 10, 8 thid`4,
and a child aged 3} belonging to his
sister-in-law, perished in the fiames. , -, 7
His oldest son, aged 13 years, watSsaved,
through considerable difficulty, by Pla
cing a board up tho side of the building,
to the second story, and with a great
deal of persuasion the lad
to climb out of the window ,upon the
board, and thus saved. The next morn
ing a portion of the remains of the chil
dren were found in the cellar amongst
the charred remains of the building.—
These remains were coined on Monday
and buried in the A Mean burying ground.

To the Citizens of 'Marietta.
FELLOW Cirrus:is :—A sari calamity has
occurred in our town—the loss of four
lives by the burning of a dwelling. And
that fire might have been much greater,
but for Providence who withheld the
winds, and the noble few of his creatures,
who worked hard and well to keep the
flames from spreading to the numerous
frame stables in the immediate vicinity.
No thanks are due to the dainty fing
ered chaps, who wrapped in their shawls,
with' ladies ; ou their arms (or Wilding
them up ?), were mere spectators in the
way of the ."workies." Nor are thanks
due to the property holders who grudged
a little money, to repair our old Mat.
Lyon engine—the most useful on this
occasion—,-and who scolded and grum
bled at the "Vigilant boys" having it,
and croaked all kinds of evil prophecies
if they were allowed to manage it. Nor
do we owe thanks to the "shirking" and
helpless officers and members of the other
company, who skulked from duty, or
made a great noise in giving orders in
stead of quickly obeying the orders of
their more active and useful officers and
members. Nor are thanks owing to any
of•the crowd who refused to form into
line and ,supply the "Vigilant" with wa
ter. Had these, and such as these, been
the only persons there, the fire would
have spread to the stables, and from
thence to the houses by means of the
connecting fences and buildings, and a
great portion of onr beautiful town would
have been a blackened andsmoking heap
But thanks are due to God, and (under
Him) to,the bold, fearless, hard-working
"boys" of the "Vigilant Fire Company,"
who made the little old Mat. Lyon spout
water to excellent purpose whenever
water could be had. Then there was I A MERIC AN STOCK JOURNAL. The

orders and wprk. Let all other officers
resign, and . other ,people keep quiet and
out of the way. And we want laws
pasied that will give officers and workers
power to compel idlers to work or clear
out. The "Vigilant" engine was dam
aged—let it be repaired. And let the
Citizens at once equip her "boys," and
let thembe properly organized and en

are worthy, and will be needed.

in testifying that it will preserve the hair

as well as restore. Read the following:—
Oak Grove, S. C , June 24th, 1859.
PROF. 0. J. WOOD: Dear Sir:—Your Hair
Restorative is rapidly gaining popularity in this
community I have had occasion to lay preju
dice aside, and give your Hair Restorative a
perfect test :
During the year 1854, I was so unfortunate
as to be thrown my sulky against a rock near
the roadside, from which my head received a
most tel blow; causing a great deal of ir
ritadon, which communicated to the brain and
external surface of the head, from the effects
of which my hair was finally destroyed over
the entire surface of the head. From the time
I first discovored its dropping, however, up to
the time of its total disappearance, I employed
everything I could think of, being a profes
sional man myself, and, as I thought, under
standing the nature of the disease, but was
finally defeated in every perscription advanced.
These and no other circumstances induced
me to resort to your worthy Hair Restorative,
which I have every reason to believe, produced
a very happy result : two months after the first
application, I had as beautiful a head of young
' hair as I ever saw, for which I certainly owe
you my most sincere thanks. Rest assured,
dear sir, I shall recommend your remedy to all
inquirers; moreover, I shall use my influence,
which I flatter myself to say; isnot a little.
You can publish this if you think proper.
Yours, very respectfully, .
M. J. WRIGHT, M. D.
Office of the Jeffersonian, Philippi, Va.,
December 12th, 1858.
Dear Sir :—I feel it my duty as well as my
pleasure to state to you the following circum
stance, which you can use as you think proper.
A gentleman of this place, (a lawyer,) has
beentald ever since his early youtit; so much
eo, that he was compelled to wear a wig, He
was induced to use a bottle of your hair "Hair
Restorative," which he liked very much; and
after using some two or three bottles his hair
grew out quite luxuriantly, and he now has a
handsome head of hair. The gentleman's name
is Bradford, and as he is very well , known in
our adjoining counties, many persons can tes
tify. to the truth of this statement; I give it to
you , at the request of Mr. Bradford.- You can
sell a great deal of your Hair Restorative -in
this and they adjoining counties if you. have the
proper agents. Yours, &c.,. -
DR. WOOD: Dear Sir: Permit me to express
the obligations I am under for the entire res
toration of my hair to its original color; about
the time of my arrival in the United States it
was rapidly becoming gray, but upon the ap
plication of your "Hair Restorative" it soon
recovered its original hue. I consideryour re
storative as a very wonderful Invention, quite
efficacious as well as agreeable.
THE RESTORATIVE is put up in bottles of
three sizes, viz : large, medium, and small ;
small holds i-a-pint,amtretails for $1 a bottle;
the medium holds at least twenty per cent more
in.proportion- than the 'emall,retads for $2 per
bottle ; the large holds a quart, 40 percent
, more in proportion, and retails for $3.

What is more fearful than the breaking
down of the nervous system? To be excites
ble or nervous in a small degree is most dis
treising, for where Min a remedy be found?—
There is one :---ctrink but little wine, beer, or
spirits, or far better, none ; take no coffee,—
weak tea being preferable; get,all the fresh
air you can ; take tree or four Pills every night;
eat plenty of solids, avoiding the use of slops ;
and if these p,oldon rules are followed, you
will be happy in mind and strong in body, and
forget you have any nerves.
MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS.
If there is one thing more than another for
vvLich these Pills are so famous itistheirpuri— ,
lying properties, especially thOr power of
cleansing the- blood from all 'impurities, and
removing dangerous andauspended secretions.
Universally-adopted as the one'grand remedy
for female complaints; they never fail, never
weaken the system, and always bring about
SICK HEADACHES' AND vv ANT OF AF-
• These feelings which so sadden us, most fr-e
quently arise from annoyances or trouble, from
obitructed perspiration, or from eating and
drinking what is unfit • for 'us, thus disordering
the liver and stomach. These orgsmi must be
regulated if you wish to be Well. The Pills, if
taken according" to ;the Minted instructions,
will quickly restore a healthy action to both
liver and'atentadh,4hence folloW as a natural
consequence, a good appetite and a clear head.
In the But an. 4 West Indies scarcely any other
medicine is everused for these disorders.
• DISORDERS OF THR KIDNEEN.
In all diseases affecting these organs, wheth
er they seorete too much or too little water;
or whether they be afflicted with stone or gravel
or with aches and pains settled in the loins
over the rations of the kidneys, these Pillii
should be taken according to the printed direc
tions, and the Ointment ahould be well rubbed
into the small of the back at bed time. This
treatment will give almost immediate rehet
when all other means haYe‘failed,
FOR STOMACHS OUT OF ORDER.
No medicine will so effectually improve the
stomachtone of the as these Pills • they remove
all acidity, occasioned either by intemperance
or improper diet. They
_reach the liver
and reduce , it to a healthy action ;. they are
wonderfully efficacious in ,case of spasm,—in
fact they never fail in curing all disorders of
the liver and Stomach.
