--The Charleston Courier, of the 17th, says the residence, kitchen, and other out-houses of V. D. V. Jamison
, at Stillon's Turn-Out, near Orangeburg
, has been destroyed by fire.
The fire broke out Sunday morning last, about half-past 10 o'clock. Mr. Jamison
's three daughters were the only persons home at the time, and the flames made such rapid progress it was found almost impossible to save anything.
The handsome furniture was all consumed.
In fact, the whole will be a total loss.
had but the day before left for Richmond
The fire is attributable from a defective arrangement of the stove pipe on the piazza.
When the fire broke out, only two of the negroes were about the premises, who were immediately sent to Captain Warrenton
, of the next plantation, for assistance.
It was too late, as the buildings were all consumed before their arrival.
The other negroes had gone off as usual, upon the Sunday, to visit the friends on the different plantations.
