Last Night's Fire.
At a little after 9 o?clock last nigh1
a fire was discovered in one of the rooms
on the second floor of the residence of
Mr. S. Sternberger, on Ann Street, be
tween Front and Second, aeid the alarm
was imniediate'y given by mernbars of
his family. Fortunately tbe "Comet
Star Club." a colored organization.
was holding a meeting in the Cape
Fear Eogine house, on the adjoining
lot, the members ef which rushed in
and extinguished the flames before
any serions damage resulted. Tbe
general alarm was given and the fire
men turned out promptly, but their
sarvices were not needed.
Kobbory in Onplln.
Oq the night of tbe 18th inst, the
store ot J. C. Cox, at Kenansville,
Duplin county, was broken open and
robbed of a lot of overcoats, furs, lard,
cheese and tobacco, betddes various
other articles, valued by estimation at
$200. No money was taken. The
matter was placed in the hands of offi
cer Pinkney Rich, who, Irom some sus
picious circumstances connected with
the robbery, concluded that it was
made by parties ' living on the
Eastern side of the Northeast river-.
He went at once to that section of tbe
county and soon found a small portion
of the stolen property in tho possession
of Obed Maready, whom he at oace
arrested. Maready .soon managed to
make his escape and is now at large,
although the officers are on the track
ot him and he will probably be rear
rested before long.

Jim Starkey, a colored man about 60
years of ago, who has been in the em
ploy of Mr. B. H. J. Ahrens lor a
number of years, was taken quite sick
-this morning while at work in the ice-
bouse on Dock street. Mr. Ahrens,
who was present, look the old man into
the store of Mr. J. G. L. Geiscben,
corner of South Front and Dock streets,
thinking that the warmth of a good
fire might revive him. Starkev sat
down in a chair beside the stov, and
in a few memeuts laid down upon tbe
floor, where be almost immediately
expired. The Coroner and Dr. F. AV.
Potter, citv physician were called io,
and in their opinion an inquest was
deemed un necessary, as tbe cause of
death was evidently a disease of tbe
heart. The deceased lost his wife sev
eral years ago, but leaves a family of
two sons and two daughter.
At about 9 o'clock this morning,
while some hands were employed at
the freight warehouse of the Wilming
ton, Columbia & Augusta Railroad in
tranferring some water pipe from one
car to another, by some accident a
piece of iron was thrown into tbe air
and in its descent it struck Mr, Georgo
S. LeGrand, transfer clerk, in the fore
head, knocking him senseless to the
ground. At first it was thought that
he had been killed outright, so fearful
was tho blow, but he soon rallied and
was taken to his boarding bouse, where
surgical assistance was immediately
called. We are glad to say tbat the
conditiou of the wounded man is col
confhiered dangerous, although he has
a severe scalp wound, which will
probably couse him considerable pain
and inconvenience I for several days.
His escape from io slant death was al
most miraculous .
