C., Flat llock is situated on top of the B'ue Ridge, in Henderson county, about three from the comity seat, Handersoiivltle. It is on a plateau about foot above sea level, and not more than five or six miles from tlie French Broad river. Nature has lavishly adornol that little village with tho most beatt- t ful surroundings anywhere to be found in the "La-id of the as the mountains of Carolinas are called. The drives leading out m every direction through green forests whose_ tall trees, overarch and shade the highways, areastneas could be wished; the climate delightful and invigorating; tho wator clear and sparkling, and of unquestionable purity. Any one visit-iia the place for the first time cannot be otherwise than nvnchimpressedwith the beauty and grandeur ol tho and a continued residence, but heightens the pleasure. In olden times heioTe the. war, and before railroads were bnilt into tbe interior, it was a resort of much fame throughout many of the southern states. Many rich planters from South Carolina, Georgia and Louisiana built elegant residences there. When the summer t.eas'ons drew near. they might be seen with their families and servants in fine carriages and wagons driving over the turnnil.es to their snmmcr home, where they dwelled m ease and luxury, and in perfect har- monv with their neighbors, tho hardy moun- taineers in their humble until the au- tumn days came. Many of those grand old places have gone to decay, while others are occupied by those once wealthy families who lost all of their property during the war and are now living secluded lives almost unknown to the outside world.

The flre started at o'clock in tUe packing room, or engine room adjoining not known definitely which, and no cause is assigned lor the fire. The firemen worked against obstacles from the start. Tho water had littlo effect on the grease- soaked floors, and tho fire soon reached the tank room, where 320 tanks of lard wore located. These exploded, one after another, wtth loud reports, and the boiling lard fed the flaiacs more fiercely. The heat was so intense that the firemen were compelled to work at a distance, and it was seen to be worse than use- loss to throw water into tho hissing and seeth- ing furnace. The packing room was 50x150 feet, and the whole interior -was blazing when the firemen reached the scene, in response to the -first alarm. THE SEKTHINO FLAMES. The flames spread to the cooling room ad- joining, and commenced burning the carcasses the hogs hanging there. In tho room were Hogs, and they burned like oil. The roof fell ia about two hours after the fire started, alid tho fire became more furious. Scores_ of firemen directed a hundred streams of water into tlie burning acres of lard and meat, with no fitf eot. About this time the flames reached a lot ot saltpetre stored obove the packing room, and tho Jumes from the chemicals were awful. It-stifled the men and made them retreat. It entered tbe nostrils and eyes, and almost made the tnon wiid with pain. The atmosphere was saturated with it. At 6 o'clock it was seen to be impossible to eirtlnguish the burning pork, and water was thrown on it to keep the fire down as much, as possible. MUSH BUKK ITSELF OUT. It will have to burn itself out, and it will probably be two days yet before it is entirely extinguished. In the basement of the entire building was stored an immense amount of salt meats. These caught fire, and while the flames were not furious, and ware prevented from blazing high, they still kept eating the sides, shoulders and hams that were placed in solid, cords, layer on laJ'er The roof and floors were covered with smoldering meats and kept the water from reaching them, and the firmen were busy all day today using axes.and hammers for re- THE WEEKLY EDITORS IN DANGEK. i more Arrests for Printing lottery Adver- tisements'in Alabama than Klsewliere. BmsirNGHAM, Ala., September publishers ot nearly all the country weekly papers in this section will probably be arrested Monday and Tuesday lor violating the new anti-lottery law. Last week's Issue of the papers contained the lottery advertise- ments. The papers had gone to press before the publishers learned through, tbe -daily papers that the law was in effect from the day the president signed the bill. Postofuce inspectors Horn, and Hooten have been in tbe postoffice here several days, seizing all papers containing the lottery adver- tisements. There is consternation, among the 'editors on account of the statement of United States Commissioner Hunter, of tho city, that each and every copy of a paper mailed would constitute an offense. When the publishers of tho daily papers in this city were arrested, warrants were issued for each edition of their paper from the date the bill was signed nntjl the advertisements were left out, five days in all. As the violations of the law were due to ignorance of the time when it went into effect, the editors were naturally indignant, and are denouncing tho action of the postal authorities in severe terms. So far more papers have been seized and more arrests madoin Alabama than in all the other states in the union. EIGHT THE GAMBLEES ANGST SECJLJ7SS A.

GALVESTON, Tex., Tbe news of a terrible tragedy enacted at Alpine, Tex., on last Saturday night, has just been received. About 9 o'clock a fearful storm was raging, the lightning flashed, tha thunder roared, the rain fell in torrents. At this hour Samuel Taylor was in the Buckhorn saloon, seated at a table playing cards with three other men. Instantly there was a flash, a loud report, and Taylor, gaspimj and bleeding, fell from his chair. The night operator uttered a cry of pain, and he, too, fell from his seat. Upon examination it "was found that Taylor was dead, he having received fifteen buckshot under the left arm. The operator was also found to be badly wounded. Five shots had entered the small of his back. A Mexican had also one of the bullets in his shoulder. The assassin fired from a window, and both, barrels of his gun are supposed to haye ,bcen emptied at once.

The governor's object in making thmtaBpec- tion was to familiarize himself with this im- portant industry, so that be can treat it intelli- gently to suggesting legislation in connection therewith. He condemns tbe present practice of taking oysters before they are grown, and says many of the beds have been injured this year by mud washing down and smothering trXoysteis. Notwithstanding the fact that e are several armed boats on the. coast to the stealing of oysters, parties are con- stantly depredating on the beds, causing con- siderable damage to the crop.

Another attempt has been made upon the life of the czar. This time the conspirators planned to wreck the train by whicii it was believed the czar intended to travel from St. Petersburg to Warsaw. An obstruction was placed upon the track in the shape of five sleepers, which were tightly wedged in between the rails. The train supposed to be carrying the czar crashed into the barricade of sleepers and was thrown from the track. No details of tho outrage can obtained.
