C.F. GRALL started for Texas with his family last Sunday. He is a
victim of 12 per cent interest and security debts, and finally came to
the conclusion to just pull up stakes, leaving his property for his
creditors, and go to some other county and take a fresh start. He was a
useful citizen, and we are sorry to part with him.
J.W. WILSON, of near Vineland, had the misfortune to have his house and
most of its contents destroyed by fire on the 19th inst. The fire is
supposed to have been communicated from the flue in the upper part of
the building. A strong wind prevailed at the time, and the house was
not more than a half hour in burning. Mr. WILSON was out working on the
road at the time, but for the exertions of James WILSON and a colored
boy the out buildings, cribs &c., would have been destroyed also. The
building was insured, but the insurance will not near cover the loss.

OBITUARY - SHELTON; -- In HIllsboro, Feb. 25, 1878, of consumption,
Izella, daughter of John SHELTON, in the 18th year of her age.
She was a patient, dutiful child, and why she should be cut off in the
bloom of life, while the aged are left to mourn, is one of the mysteries
of Providence. Let us hope that she has been transplanted into that
clime where pain and sickness are not felt.
