Scarcely a day fpasse3 now that "W
do not have afire alarm, but scarcely
ever a fire. It is almost invariably
caused by the burning out of a chim
ney, causingremen and others unne
cessary trouble and inconvenience. It
is undoubtedly a nuisance, but after all
is one which it is l very hard to abate.
The only remedy is to compel people to
burn out their chimneys in wet weath
er. This, we believe, is done in some
cities. It was the burning of a chim
ney in Mr. Crew's (Gen. Hill's old) res
idence which caused the alarm yester
day. All the fire companies were out
and got within a block of the scene be
fore the mistake could be corrected.

formed by the magistrate that the hard
working, industrious classes of the col
ored people have taken a very active
interest m bringing these vagrants to
suffer the penalties, saying that they
don't intend any longer to bear the
blame for the conduct of a set of trifling
darkies who make this city headquar

consequence of the arrests Five Points

I am never without it at home or abroad. It Is
an antidote to Indigestion. Uneasiness after a
meal or purging is checked and the bowels regula
ted. Its merits are attested by numbers of nigh
character. I have seen a "trled-everythlng" dys
peptic f fifteen years relieved by one dose.
Rev. Drs. Jeter, Broaddus, Dickinson (Bap.)
It is endorsed by the direct personal testimony
of men of national fame and of strictness of
speech. It is not too much to say that no medicine
ever had such support In its favor as a specific.
The word of any one of the eminent divines who
underwrite tms antidote to dyspepsia nas deserved
weight Their united witness Joined with the ex
perimental use and approval of the preparation by
well-known physicians, removes all doubt. It is,
beyond question, a wonderful therapeutical agent.
