publicans in the House. Congress
met on Monday, 2d inst., when
Reed was elected Speaker ot the

Secretary Tracy in his annual le
port says?, when all the ships now
authorized ate completed, the Unit
ed States navy will comprise eleven
armored vessels, of which only three
are designed for fighting at sea, and
thirty-one imarmored vessels, mak
ing a total of forty-two. "The
United States, so far as its capacity
for defense is concerned, will then
be absolutely at the mercy ot states
having less than one-tenth of its
population, one-thirtieth of its
wealth, and one-hundredth of its
area." The Secretary urges the
necessity of building a navy in
keeping with the wealth and enor
mous coast line of the country. lie
considers 2Q battle ships, 20 coast
defense ships, and GO cruisers, or
100 vessels in all, to be a moderate
estimate of the fleet the nation re
quires. The Secretary is not pre
dated to rcco.mmend the construc
tion of a. naval station on Puget
Sound at any of the sites suggested
by the commission. He recom
mends that provision be made at
once to establish a coaling station
at Samoa on the site selected by

scheme to promote a commercial
union with Canada with a view to
its ultimate annexation and the set
tlement of the Mexican and Alaskan
borders by the appointment of,com
missionersor by treaty.
The House of Representatives
will present a decided change in
political complexion as compared
with its predecessor. Besides the
addition of five representatives from
the new States to the roll, extensive
changes have resulted from the last
elections, so that of the total of 330
members, only 199 occupied scats
in the last Congress, and a Demo
cratic majority of twelve in the
Fiftieth Congress has been replaced
by a Republican majority of eight,
as shown by an unofllcial list pre
pared by the clerk.
riltKS IN BOSTON AND SIINNEAl-OUS.
A fire occurred in Boston, Nov.
28, which destroyed moio than three
blocks, with a loss of live million
dollars. The alarm was rung from
the name box as heralded the con
Jlagiation of 1872. The fire bioke
out in the six-story granito building
owned by Jordan, Marsh & Co., and
occupied by Brown, Durell & Co. ,dry
goods dealers, on Bedford street,
corner of Kingston. It raged for
six hours and burned over two acres
of territory covered with magnificent
structures. About 200 firms weie
burned out, and 100 agents of New
Yoik and Western firms had their
lieadquarteis destroyed. The origin
of the fire is attributed to electric
wiies. So quickly did the flames
get beyond control that tho general
alarm was deemed necessary to be
followed with calls upon all the
neighboring cities and towns for as
sistance. The great fire of 1872
started near the same spot at 7
o'clock on the evening of Saturday,
Nov. 9, and was not subdued until
10 o'clock the following Monday
morning, when 'it had destroyed
880,000,000 woith of property.
Tho Tribune building in 'Minnea
polis, Minnesota, took lire at 10:20
p. in., Nov. 30. It was a tall build
ing from which three daily and one
weekly papers were issued. Tho
seventh nnd eighth tloors eio occu
pied by tho Tiibuno editorial staff
and compositors. When tho lire
brigade anived men were at the up
per windows calling for help. The
flames had cut off tho elevator and
the only stairway, and no ladders
were on hand to reach further than
tho top of the lower stoiy. Before
adequate relief t cached the building,
many of the inmates had perished
either by jumping to the ground or
from burning. Two men not known
were seen to shoot themselves rather
than burn to death. The building
was destroyed. It was' feared at
last accounts that the number of
dead would reach fifteen or more.
Those identified were tho following!
