Frons the CuAtr. Meyx"IM. 6.
As, no donut, a curiosity exists in the
public mind, io know. the cause which led
S4ho.death of Oscelaia-the distinguished
Seminolo Chief, and as many reports
may be circulated on the subject-I have
deemed it advisable togive publicity to a
statement of the circumstances attending
his last ilness.
- Lam impelled, moreover, to do this from
another motive-theisense of myself and
those entrusted with hissafe keeping. Be
ing conscious that nothing has been omitted
in the discharge of that trust, which could
in any way have contributed to-the health
and comfort of the disease.
On the 26th January last, he was attack
e-1 in the night with a violent Quinsy, of
which I was iufoirmed very soon afler, and
hastened to his room. lie was then labor
ing under considerable ditliculty of degluti
tion and respiration, accompanied with pain
und inflanmmation of the tonsils. To pre
vent stfocation it was necessary to support
him nearly in an erect position. His pulse
was full, quick, and 1ard. Blood was in
stantly drawn, and an emetic and blister
prescribed. At this moment an Iudian en
tered the room, who as I afterwards under
etood. was held in high estimation as a
Pophet and Doctor. From the moment of
his ent rance there was a refusal to take any

the patient with ine. lio attended and us

refused. not but he would have been dispos

by the inflence of his family.
Fort Moultrie Sullivan's Island, Feb. 3.
At the reqest of Dr. Weedon, I visited
Osceola at Sullivan's Island, I saw him
in the evening by candle-light. lie was
lying on his blanket before the lire, his head
propped ul, and two Indian women, one
on each side, employed bathing his neck
with warm water, in which sonic herbs
had been steeped. Ile was breathing
with mue: dilliculty, his brow was con
traltel, and his countenance indicat
ing great bodily pain. IHis pulse was
full and quick, skin hot and dry. I re
quested permnission, through the interpreter
to examine his throat, to which lie assented
I discovered that the tonsils were so mteh
enlarged as greatly to impede respiration
and that the mucous meambratncs of the
pharnyx, was in a high state of inflamation
As there was some danger of suffocation
unless the disease was arrested, I proposed
to scarify the tonsils. 'Tie patient refer

the floor, covered up in his blanket, with
ill the air and dignity of a great man.

him to let ts do something, for although I
did not doubt his aility, to cure in the
woods, where lie could have access to his
roots amid herbs, yet hmere lie was pilaced tin
dler different circumnstances, anmd as lhe had
no means wvitin his reach, begged him to

to learn, the loss amounts to over $250,000.
and the insurance to about one fourth that
sum. The loss however must be most
severely felt by the numerois families,
wlhoso property has been destroyed, and
who were turned in the street to shift for
themselves as they best could. The build

Esq. and were under the agency of James

the building. but we have not learned wheth

FirE.-About 4 o'clock yesterday morn
ing, the store on the corner of WVest Broad
way and Leonard streets was discovered
to be on fire. On examining the premises,
a false key was fimund in the door. whichI
lends to a supposition that the premises were
robbed, and set on fire hy incendiaries.
The building was occupied by Wim. Green,
a colored inan, as a dry good store. The
loss of stock is estimated at $1800; $1000
of which was covered by insurance. The
fire did not extend beyond the store.

who turned it out in the street sick anid

under his practice, that its disease was not itn
I stage of immediate danger, thejury, ut i

though produced by the disease was bias
tened by the exposure to which it had been

noted the death of the child by depriving itof

MORE PACKED hloutEs.--Another at
tempt to send off' human corpses, packed mii
barrels, was discovered and fraustratc. yes
terday, and it resulted in something so near
ly appronching to an implication on the
part of a certain department connected
with our city economy, as to give those dis
posed a fair opportunity for rumoring sur
mises and possibility of character not very
creditable to those whose departments are
concerned. The case was this. During
Tuesday night. unknown to any person be
longing to the vessel, a barrel marked
"Small & Masters, Portland," was put on
board the Portland schooner Alfred, lying
at Conies slip, where it was found in the
morning; besides which another barrel,
siinilkrly marked, was found stattding lby
aho side of the sehoontter, Ott the tiddle pier
of the slip, Tle acting mate of the vessel
who said he knew the names of every firm
in Portland, told the captain that lie had
never heard of such a house as that to
which the harrels were directed : which fact
connected with the irregular manner in
which the barrels had been placed there,
and the recaollection of the "Southern
Pork" e'ses of recent occurrence, induced
the suspicion that this might be a shipment
of similar character. in consequence of
this suspicion the barrel was opened, and
one was found to contain the bodies of two
white females, one quite old anid the other
about thirty live, and the other cottained
the corpse of a white ttan who had attain
ed to tmiddle atge. luformation of the dis
covery was sent to the police oflice, and the
coroner hal the barrel and cotents con
veyed up to the dead house, in the alms

The repeated assertions of a probable

It is true that the Secretary of the Navy I

gamining it, and he will accordingly proceed

In our last we published the reply of Gov.

lie interposition of the Executive. The
roof of guilt was conclusive, and no mimi
