The most disastruus fire that ins

years, broke out about 9 o'clock, to
night, in the extensve planning, sash,

$6,000, without insurance. In the

The lot-s to (line & Gibbes is very
severe, as they have several extensive

are energetio and reliable contractors,

The fire is no doubt the work an

in an immenso volume at some dis.

in which fire was kept in the place,
and which Mr. 0 ibbos nasures me was

General Sherman .Qi General Urant's
A reporter of the New York Ier
ald reports soine remarks made by
General Sherman as part of an "in
terview" with that officer just prior
to his departure for Europe on the
frigate Wabash. Being asked about
the Administration policy in the
South, the General said :
"I don't care to speak plainly on
those matte.rs. It is not in line of my
duty. I think, howevor, that when
the war was ended warfare against our
brethren of the South should have
ceased. The negroes are well dispos
ed and a kindly people, but they are
not, as a oass, posted in the soieneo
of government ; they are apt to make
mistakes and behave rashly. But I
have no doubt whatever that every
thing will turn out all right in the
end. The Union men in the South
were never a fino class of people, and
sone down there now would be better
out of it, but their presence in the
late insurrectionary Status affords
no proper excuse for acts of lawless

Tfhey are not all rasoals in th~e South.
Tlhe majority of the people are the
best citizens of the republic. The
young men that followed the retreat
i g('onfed. ratt s into Texas,ithe muon of
the armny of Vir'gin ia, and the lads of
the WVest who leaned toward the Routh
were capital fellows, though mistaken.
T[hese in my opinion, should have
been appointed to position under the
government as nimshalu, .postniaaters
internal revenue collectors, and to
other Federal and State offices, in
stead of being drivenm into opposi
tion. I really believe that these
younmg men represented the 8o~uth,
and that they were ready to cry 'pee'

I am sorry they were not treated
properly. But it will be right in the
