THE MOUNTAIN HOLOCAUST IN NEW
YORK--XCITING PA4SAGE OF A
RAIL ROAD TRAIN-A FAMILY ROAST
Additional intelligence In regard
to the great forest confligrations in
Sullivan, Orangi, Delaware, Ducbess
and Madison counties of this 8tate
has been received. Never before
have these mountain fires raged so
furiously or extended over so large an
amount of territory. It is generally
believed by persons living In those
counties, that the conflagration was
started by the hand of an incendiary.
In those regions where the fires broke
out live many persons who are called
gypsies, who reside in shanties which
have been erected in remote nooks on
the mountain aide and other solitary
places that are seldom reached by the
mo'e olvilised world. These gypsies
are describe A as a thriftless comtnuni
ty, having no regard for, and there
fore no love for the industrious
farmers and woodsmen who live near
them, and it is believed that they set
ire to the underbrush, well knowing
that the fiames would extend to the
forest proper and spread many miles
Usually these fires, which more or
less occur every spring, have been con
fined to districts of limited extent and
value, but this spring they have rat
aged thousands of acres of valuable
woodland, destroying millions of trees
and cords of wood, logq, ship joints
and bark. The lope, so far as it has
been ssertaled is estilotcd at over

undred miles in length. The 8 u
livan county forest have been butnt
for a dietance of twenty. iles. The
Delaware county woodlands have been
devasted seome fifteen miles. In both
of these localities the fires are still
raging. In Orange county the fiani
ing tempest has spent its strength,
and the mountain ridges and hillsides
Are a emouldering waste of land.

andcalamity yet reported occuarred on
Sunday night near Deposit Station.
As darkness gathered over the dying
day the fire had reached the base of
the West Mountains, and before 9
o'olook had completely encircled one
of the prominent peaks as with a
girdle of fire. The fames roared and
crackled with horrible sounds as they
swept up the hill side. The glare
brilliantly illuminated the whole
adjacent region. A party of sports
men returnng through a gorge on the
opposite side heard shouts and bries of
distrees, apparently proceeding from
the flaming forest. Looking up
through the flame and smoke they
thought they discovered the forms of
a man and woman upon a rocky
height, swaying their arms to and fro.
The cries continued, and one of the
party is sure that he afterwards
caught a glimpse of a child in the

the subsequent. chase of his mur

wild novel of the Mayne Reed school.
Albert H. Upws the desperado, was
wanted for killing a foftner comrade,
named Dunn in August last, and a
warrant for his arrest was 6awed by
Chief Justice Wilson and given to
Story and a Nevada; sheriff named
Carlgab, at Salt Lake Cfty. On
hlfonday the officers saurprised flaws
unarmed at the corral near his house,
and, drawing their pistols, demanded
his surrender. He pretended to com
ply, but while Story was liandouffin
him, sprang upon Carrigan and seized
his revolver. Story flew at Hlaws,
dklew his pistol, got it to Haws' side,
but the latter bent his back, and the
ball passed by without touching him,
Hlaws in an instant graped with
Story, turned his pistoI 4potn his left
