Latest Northern -advices received

portant items of news:
The fire broke ont on the norning of
the 13th and was occasioned by the ex.
I losion of engines under the mtieeum
L buildings and of chemical apparatus in
the lecture room. The Herald and a
few other buildings escaped with but
, little injury, although the contents were
D somewhat,.damaged by hnsty'removal.
At one time 4 was thought that the
,. whole block would be consumed and all
I efforts to stay the progress of the flames
I seemed hopeless. 'the efforts of the new.
r ly organired fire department were almost
superhutuan and were Anally stccessful.
The heaviest loser is Barnum. The
glass vorks of the Boinibian glass-blow
ers, and several other articles of small
value were 'saved. The total loss is es
timated at from one and a half to two
millions of dollars. 'Barnum was in
Bridgeport at the time of the ire. He
has announced his intention to erect a
ne* building higher up town.

Bureau, from two agents, who have re

Florda o horseback, in regard to the
relations now existing between the
whites and blacks of that State and, the
present proslect of crops. These gen.
tlemen say there are no armed rebels in
Florida, and that the white population
overywhere expressed the most ardent
i wish for a continuation of peace. They
found very -rude notions existing among
the people congerning' the negroes; but
it seemed generally understood and ac
quiescod in that slavery was pt an end.

A Bx'8 NEST IN A MAN'S HEAD.
Some visitors to the battle-field of Sev.
en Pines last week picked np a remarka.
bly well develop'ed skull, in which a
colony of bee's had built their home: It
was evidently a last year's nest, for the
bees were gone, though the nest remain,
ed perfect. . A soliloquy as touching as
that pronounced by Hamlet over the
skull of Yorick might be suggested by
this skull, and the strange incident of
its becoming the habitation of bees.
Whose skull was it ? Nobody knows.
Yet somebody once knew the owner of
it well, and some heart broke when he
came not back from the battle. That
skull, that once perchance, was animated
by rare intelligence, that intelligence
gono, becomes the resting place of bee's!

DESPERATE ASSAULT OF A JEALOUS
WiyE.-A telegram from Chicago, dated
July 12, states:
A horrible tragedy 'qccnrred on
Dearborn street yesterday afternoon,
in which Mrs. Mathias Trehune, wife
of a ,respectable mechanic, attacked
Miss Amelia Frasted with a knife,
cutting her in the face and neck six
times, destroying her left eye, piercing
her windpipe, and inflicting wounl
which will undoubtedly prove fatal.
The fiendish woma'n then attempted to
escape. but was arrested, and- now lies
in4jail awaiting the recult of her victim's
ijuries. The cause of this tradegic affair
was jealousy. The husband of Mrs.
Trehune has mysteriously disappeared.
A KTNGFoR CANADA.-It is stated
that a plan has been matured in England
to avoid all cause of difficulty with the
United States about Canada, by making
British America an independent king.
dom, with a monarch elected by the peo.
ple, riis throne to be guaranteed by sev
eral European powers besides England,
Belgium, Holland, Denmark and Greece.
For example, with these potentates
supporting the King of Canada, and a
similar league of Emperors supporting
the Emperor of Mexico ; it is hoped by
tlie people of the other side that the
world may swing on smoothly for the
remainder of its years.
