f5"be and Loss of Life.?About 9 if o'clock
last night the large Hour, grain, and feed store
on 7th street, between K and L north, belong
ing to Mr. P W. Dorsey, was discovered to be
en fir* in the rear ot the store, and from the
manner in whica it origina*ed it is presumed
that the straw and hay was fired by an incen
diary. The combustible nature of tbe stock
closed the fire to spread so rapidly that little
could be done until toe arrival of the firemen.
The steam engines were soon at worn, and by
pouring conx'&ut streams of water upon the
burning building and the property aroand

body was soon taken out and couveyed to his
residence. It was at first supposed thdt two
others were buried undeT the wall, bnt this
?was an error: they escaped. Subsequently a
portion of the north wall fell and it wis ru
mored that a boy and two men were buried
under it, but there is no confirmation of this.
While the Anacostia hose reel wasstand'ng
without a g'inrd, near the Northern Market,
some scoundrels took possession of it, and ran
it down to tbe canal at the foot of Ninth street,

Bailboad?Tv>o Men KtlUd.?Au accident re
uniting In the death ot Mr. Jacob Oroff, a bag
gage master, and a -oldier of an lniiana regi- |
ment, (cenrred ye terday on the Washington
Bi anch Railroad, rietween 5 and 6 o'clock, p. j
m. lbe Express trnln which left Baiiim ire at
4.40 and the Passe ager train wbich left this city
at 4.CC collided on; halt mile this side of An- I
ziapolis J unction. The enennes, baggage cars, !
e>pre^s cars, and several of the passenger cars
were broken and smashed t j pieces.
Mr. Jacob Grofi", th* baggage master on the
duwn train, was so severely injured that he
died withiuan hour after the accident occurred.
Ills legs and arms were broken, and his body
wa> badly mashed, lits remains were taken
to Balt.moie where his lamily resided. Mr.
Ciioff was one ot theoldest and most trusty em
ployes on the^-oad and at the time of the aeci
o? nt w?s at tbe post ot duty, putting down the
brakes The soldier who was killed was stand
ing on tbe platform of the smoking car. No
others were injured on the down train. On the
tiain from Washington Edward Bullen, bag
gage ma-ter. was vry severely irjared, being
ji mmed up among the baggage and car ruins,
lie wat taken to Annapolis Junction, where he
r< c? ived medical aid.
The rnptneers and firemen jimped off tbe
engines just before the collision occurred, and
tl ereby escaped uninjured.
None of the passengers were injured. The
conductor ob the train from Washington was
Mr. Heaver, while Mr. Taylor had charge ol
tbet;a<n trom Baltimore. Both are old and
respected conductors, wno have ever been
careful ol their trains. But their watches dif
fered, and this was the result ot the accident.
It is impossible to blame either of them.
Mr. Willlsm Prescott Smith, the Superinten
dent ot the road, with his usual eoergy, at once
*et to woik to have tbe passengers conveyed
to their respective destinations, and despatched
extra trains to effect this end. Mr. Smith has
sIst i? stitnted a thorough investigation of the
matter, and he will certainly punish any dere
liction oi duty, il such there was.
