following to those who sutler from sleep..
les ness: When ready for bed sit down

This is owing to the earth beiog inclined
to the plane of its orbit, like a top in mo

face on which it stands while revolving.
This causes a greater amount of heat to

dition to the varying length of the day
gives rise to the chaoges of the seasons.
In planets like Jupiter and the moon,
which rotate with their axis nearly ups

Disastrous Fire at Whitakers A
Large Portion of the tTown De
Our correspondent, C, at Whitakers,
gives us the particulars of a very disastrous
hie which occurred in that thriving little
town on Suuday night last, by which a
large portion ot the place was destroyed
The alarm was first given at 9 o'clock, and
the fire raged uutil 12, at which hour a
large amount of valuable property was in
ruins. It was first discovered in a ten-pin
ally, which had been unoccupied for a year
or more, and rapidly spread thence to a
store owned by J. H. Deal, and occupied
by Julius Meyer, thenco, in succession to
stare owned by C. K. King, and occupied
by Simon Meyer ; store owned by B. T.
HymanA Co,and oecupjied byC.B.Braswell
& Co. ; store owned by I). W. Brodie and
occupied as a saloon by Kichard Tyler;
httore owned by J M. Mayo and occu
pied by Mr W. E Imonds as a saloon
and grocery stordj B. F. Coppiga occu
pying one loom as a shoe shop;
and store owned and occupied by
J. H Cuchm Th:se builditigs,
which were all entirely destroyed, com
posed one entire block of buildings in the
central business portion of the town.
Most: of the goods were removed but iu
the hurry and confusion of the hour many
articles were damaged or destioyed and
some, perhaps, were stolen. The mer
chants have obtained other buildings for
temporary use in which they have stored
the goods they saved and have resumed
ousiness in a crippled var.
Our correspondent wiites: 'J. H. Deal
and J. H. Cutchin aie partially insured
on their buildings and J. H. Cutchin and
Julius Meyer have some insurance on
rtock.bu t this is all. The other merchants
had no insurance whatever. The loss on
buildings is about $8,000 and the insur
aiue on'v 3.000. A number of insurance
agents are here already.
Most of i the merchants were young
men just beginning business this year in
rented bootSs?, with ut insurance on their
stock, and tbe loss falls heavily on them.
Many of them will not be able Ut carry
ou business unless aided by indulgence or
capital. ' Tee bu Hi igs on the opposite
side of the street were damaged by heat

It is s dd that Littleton ws a doomed man
by disease aud that he was so far gone iu
consumption that he could not have had
the strength to escape uuaided; but then
it is well known that another prisoner
escaped at the same time. Littleton was
seen but once iu the neighborhood after
his escape and that was by a litt'e
school girl who knew him well, who
declares that she saw him one morning
leaning against a pine tree reading a no
