FUHTHKK rAUTICUI.AltS OF Tim GIIKAT
It has been clearly ascertained that thu grcnt
fire originated, as was supposed, in the store of
Messrs. Comstock li Andrews, V .Merchant
street. Tho occupnnts of mher storcH in the vi
cinity heard an explosion aboul 0 o'clock of tho
fatal evoning ; nnd immediately thereafter the
flamca burst from the firtt and fourth stories of the
building aforciaiu, occupied aa above, while tin:
intermediate elorien, in the poisession of unolher
firm, imnained for Home mimilcs perfectly dark.
Of course, the conllagration must bo attributed to
the explosion of a gas-pipe, and no'blamu can be
attached to any person.
We are aware that our city will rest under the
imputation, from the appalling extuit of this cal
amity, when .viewed in connexion with othor cir
cumstanccp, of being peculiarly exposed to these
iilllictlvu visitations. We ask those at a distance
to reflect that the fire broke out at very worst point
in the whole city that the night was one of the
coldest ever known in this city and over tlio whole
face or Hie country that the "wind was unusually
high throughout the night and tint it was utter
ly impossible to work the engines, after a short
time, owing to the accumulation of ice in the
luifc. Had the lire obtained so Midden and com
plete an ascendency in tho mmt.coinpact portion of
any other of tho largo cities of the Union, wc
firmly believe that it must have been fearfully,
though pcihaps not equally, ditastrous.
Tho spirit with which the very great loss sus
tained is borne by the great body of the sulTcrers
excites universal admiration. Not one in a hun
dred dreams of despondency few seem tu regard
it as any thing more than a Ecrious cheek tu our
career of unrivalled prosperity. Many of the
merchants had sdeured new stores for the continu
ance of their business before their old ones had
fairly fallen victims to tho devouring clement, aud
sonio wc learn, even before it had actually reach
ed then, ! Arthur Toppan & Co. had their goods
fairly in store the morning of the fire, and actuilly
sdvcitiscd at 12 o'clock the resumption of busi
ness at their new stand, and that the contracts had
been completed for rebuilding on their old premis
es '. At this moment, it was probably but just pos
sible to set fool on those same premises. The re
moval of the ruins was in many instances com
menced as soon a the bricks were cooled sulli
cicully to be handled. The Gazette forcibly ru
"There is one point of view in which this disas
ter, great and serious a it is, has been instrumen
tal in calling forth a cheering and even pleasurable
feeling and that is in tho evidence it furnishes of
the fortitude, and enterprise, ami elastic spirit of
our mcrcantilu community. Even in tho very
height of the conflagration under the first pres
sure of tho impending ruin it was beautiful to
see tho manly composure with which hundreds of
merchants stood looking ripon the destruction of
thrir wealth, and the self-possessed activity with
which they, and indeed all, exerted -themselves
wherever there wan a hopo that exertion might be
useful. Instances were not rare, in which mcr
rhants whore all was in the flames, were laboring
to asaial their neighbors in removal of goods, with
as much energy and spirit as though their own
fortunes were beyond tho iiillucnco of disaster.
And during tho intervening time after the excite
ment had passed away, and there wag leisure fur
reflection upon the magnitude of their lose there
was not a single wcekne a word of unavailing
complaint, jr a moment of yielding to the pres
sure of the evil,''
We believe very general satisfaction was given
by tho efforts of the Ranks, lie. tu relieve tho im
medUto pressure of the calamity. A conference,
of their Presidents was held, and a resolution mu
tually adopted that the note of the eufieiers fall
log due wilhm thirty days should be renewed in
variably, the endorsers remaining tht me. (Ily
a singular good fortune or rather by the excel
lence of tboir construction -not a single Rank
was destroyed, though nearly all were in the im
mediate vicinity, aud aeveml were in imminent
dinger from the Haines.) Individual liborality
and pubjic spirit were looapicuoualy displayed.
Scrcral of our first businesa boum, U, ,ymar li
Co. S. V. R. Wilder, Ilowland li Aapmwall, (ibe
latter tbemselve uOrer to the -amount of $50,
000,) promptly offered tu caib all their outstand

l'icsidctit Riddle reached this city the next morn
ing, and immediately proffered to the Corporation
or to the Ranks a loan for the relief of the suffer
er". In reply'lo this, it was suggested that eomo
of tho Ranks had already extended their loans us
far us permitted by their, chirtcrs that additional
capital was required rather than additional facili
ties and a loan to tho Itisuranco Companies
would be far more bciiificial to the public. Mr.
Ihddlo promptly responded by iiutruetitig the Di
rectors of the Ura rich Rank to loan thu several
Insurance Companies tho sum 2,000,000, receiv
ing their bonds and mortgages ns security. livery
forbearance and accommodation on tho part of tho
Rank was further nerlTicd. The Committee in he
half of tho City Ranks havo unanimously pasted a
vote of thanks to Air. Riddle.
A Grand Committee of one hundred nn twenty
five, appointed ot a General meeting ol citizen?,
in conjunction with many auxilary and sub-committees,
is still actively engaged in devising nnd exe
cuting whatever rnensorcs may bo thought advisa
ble at this crisis. In fine, without going into tho
details uf proceedings, wo may safely assure our
distant friends that nothing has been neglected
which" may havo n tendency to mitigate tho evil
that has eo suddenly befallen uh.
The flames of the conflagration wero seen at
the Highlands, 50 miles distant, and the illumina
tion was distinctly visible nt New Haven, Conn.

Tho following we have not seen in print : A weal
thy merchant of this city, it is said, was married
on Wednesday overling; and was called away di
rectly upon the conclusion of the ceremony by the
intelligence that his store was in danger from the

through tho night, saw his property consumed,
and in the morning returned to his wife a bank
rupt. UxracssioN or svjirATiiir So soon as the great
calamity which desolated our city was mode known
in the city of Rrotherly Love, a,grcat meeting of
citizens was held at the exchange Hon. John
Swift, Mayor, in thu Chair, Geo. M. Dallas and
Thomas Riddle, Secretaries and a Committee of
Fifty immediately appointed "to communicate to
the Corporation and people of New York the deep
and abiding sympathy universally felt throughout
our community" to ascertain and report the
amount of the total loss to another general meet
ing on Monday next to memorialize tho Con
gress of the United States, in behalf of the citizens
of Philadelphia, praying the appropriation of ten
millions of dollars from the National Treasury, to
the relief of the sufferers to draft a memotial to
tho Legislature of Pcnusyhania, k-c. fee. Two
hundred firemen, under their auspices, wore imme
diately despatched to assist in extinguishing the
fire, and protecting tho property cxpotcdi-i.
IlusAWxy Stuam K.noi.m:. One of the most
curious circumstances in the history oflocommo
five engines occurred on Saturday afternoon, at the
depot of the Leeds and Selhy railway, at Leeds.
Tho firemen had lighted a fire under the boiler of
a locomotive engine which was attached to a train,
and then left it. Tho steam got up sooner than
they anticipated, and the cneine set off without
cither guide or train ; and being unencumbered, it '
proceeded with fearful lapidity. The astonishment
of the firemen may be easily conceived when they j
found the engine out of tight. The persons who j
saw u on us nigiii were uuia.-u oujunu uiuasutu,
aa it seemed literally to fly. At length when the
fire abated and tho steam lessoned, its dangerous
speed gradually slackened, and it finally slood still
at the Millford cutting, a distance of twelve miles
