New Tobacco Wouks. The work
of demolishing the Cape Tobacco fac

pleted, and workmen aro engaged in
erecting the new factory on the old
Camp Lamb ground.: The building is
to be three stories high and 45 x 115
feet long. The machinery will be
worked by steam, and more than one
hundred hands' will be em ployed in the
actory. The capacity of the factory
will be more than doubled. , j
) Runaways. -The horses of the
steam- fire ergine "A. Adrian" got
away from the driver at the corner of
Sixth and Church streets, Wednesday
morning about 2 o'clock. . After .the
fire was gotten under control tho "Cape
Fear's horses pulled the "Adrian" back
to her house. The-horses' were found
at the . old Gallord place, about two
miles from the city, on the Mason bofo
Ft ue Alarm. Tho alarm1 of fire;
was souuded Tuesday night about 1 0
o'clock," caused by" the - burning of a
shanty near the corner of Market and
Thirteenth streets. The fire depart

services were xlot calico: into jj requisi

cistern on the corner of Eighth and
Dock streets, but as the hose, cold not

John A. Griffin . arrived in this city on
Saturday with three feet of ice in her
water .tanks between decks. .CapL
Foster says that he has never heard of
a case like it. Ho says a vessel seldom
if eyer rounds Cape Hatteras with ice
in her casks that are on deck, exposed
to the wind and : weather. The hold
of a vessel is generally considered com
paratively a warm place, as it is as near
air-tigh as it is possible to get iu It
is very evident that 'it was coat and
cold iu the hold of the GriCio. :
The Fire. The of fire Wednesday
morning, about 2 o'clock, was caused
by the buxnisg of a ; couple of am
frame houses next to the comer of
Sixth and Church streets. The fire
originated ia a house owned by Sylve
Cappa, colored, and sooV spread to the
houae adjoining, occupied by a colored
family ao'l owned by George Wj Price.
By hard work the ; Second Rsptiat
