?Tbc Great Portland Fire.
The despatches from Portland, '
Maine, heretofore published, have j
told the story of the calamity which j
has overtaken that city. From our
Northern files we gather some inte?
resting details of the conflagration.
The fire originated in a pile of shav?
ings into which a boy, celebrating the
glorious Fourth, threw a pack of pop
Two hundred acres of territory,
compactly built with dwellings and
business nouses, have been swept by
the tornado of flame, and 10,000 or
12,000 men, women and children
were turned into the places which
had once been streets. The heaviest
loser was Brown, the sugar refiner,
Whose loss is estimated at $1,000,000,
which includes not only Iiis immense
works, but houses in various parts of
the city. Fortunately, his fine resi?
dence was outside the burnt district.
The destruction of the now city hall,
the pride of the city and the State, is j
generally lamented. It was not be?
lieved that this would go, and many
articles were taken there for safety,
and were, of course, all lost. It
caught in the dome, and this falling
through, the roof, set tho interior on
fire, and 5t was quickly burned to the
ground. A few of tue city records
were saved t*ud a great many de?
stroyed. The building cost original?
ly about $400,000, but it cannot now
be replaced for twice that sum. Tho
Methodist Church, ou Chesnut street,
near the city hall, the most valuable
in the city, waa saved by tho precau?
tionary measures of iron shutters to
the windows, which it is said many of
the Society opposed when the church
was erected. It is worth about
$70,000. By the destruction of the
Natural History Building, that cor?
poration will lose $50,00U, exclusive
of the valuable collections which it
contained. The Custom House and
Post Office, both in the same build
;zg, were badly damaged in tho inte?
rior. Of tho eight churches destroy?
ed, that of the Roman Catholic Jin
maculate Conception Society, on
Congress street, together with the
parsonage, was the most valuable,
and the loss will not fall short of
8100,000. Seven hotels were de?
stroyed, including among others the
partially finished structure known as
the Marble Hotel, owned by the Hon.
John M. Wood, once a member of
Congress from Maine. The hotels
destroyed are the International, Free?
man, Commercial, American, Sailors'
Home, Kingsbury's and the Marble.
Tho two principal ones in tho city,
the Preble and the United States, e*
_ caped, although the latter was seve?
ral times on fire.
The banks of the city, seven iu
number, were all destroyed. The
opening of the vaults shows that the
papers and money of tho National
Traders' and tho First and Second
National Banks escaped unharmed. !
The City Gas Works wero destroy?
ed, so that the city now is in dark?
ness when night comes down upon
the wide-spread desolation. Tho
, burning of nearly all tho supply
^^ggtorea renders it impossible also to
^^Bbtain lamps and oil to supply tho
place of the gas.
A letter from Portland says that
the greatest apprehension among the
business men is that their misfortune
will carry down many of ' the insur?
ance companies, particularly the local |
ones, who have tho largest risks. If
the insurance losses are promptly
met, very many will resume business
again. The people arc not disposed I
to be discouraged, if it is a possibility i
to again establish in business. Mr.
Brown will probably commence the
work of rebuilding ut once, und the !
Eroprietors of tho Portland Press
ave already ordered new types und
presses, and advertised for an o theo
or proposals to build one.
The scenes in the city during the
progress of the fire were such us eye?
witnesses will not caro to have re?
peated in their experience. All tho
vehicles obtainable were impressed
into the work of transferring furni
ture and effects from buildings burn- !
ingor threatened, but, in many-cases, j
they bad no sooner been deposited in j
what was thought to be a place of |
safety than they were again endan-.
gored, and, perhaps, qiiickly destroy?
ed by the pursuing flamea
In all the Northern cities subscrip?
tions are being raised for the relief '
of tho I 'ortland sufferers.
The poor manufacturers of New
England are more cautious in the
publication of the dividends, about
these days, than they were before the
tariff bill came np in Congress; bat
now and then they let out a little of
their doings as something altogether
"too good to keep." Last Wednes?
day, the .Chicopee Manufacturing
Company held their annual meeting i
in Boston, and disclosed that their
dividend? for the past year-poor "fel?
lows!-amonnt to only forty-five per
cent. But they have saved enough to
buy the property- of the Massachu?
setts Arms Company, at Chicopee
Falls, with water power to carry
15,000 additional spindles. The Pa?
cific Mills, at ' Lawrence, Massachu?
setts, are ashamed to say that twelve
per cent, is their comparatively insig?
nificant semi-annual dividend. The
Maine Mills, at Lewiston, also show
the following contemptible results of
six months* Work: HUI and Andros
coggin Manufacturing Company,
twenty por cent, each, and the Bates
Mills ten per cent; - The latter, pro?
bably, bates rio jot of heart or hope
that the' ten per cent, will bo doubled
in the next half year. All. these po?
verty-stricken companies, with othors
.whoso dividends are too large to pub?
lish, are howling for "protection.*"

THE PRESIDENCY.-It may be stated
positively that Gen. Grant will ac?
cept a nomination for tho Presidency
for the next tenn from no party or
faction whatever. His nomination
would be equivalent to an election,
and Iiis election would necessarily j
lead to his retirement from public !
life at the end of his terni of office, j
He considers himself yet too young ;
to withdraw into retirement; and \
while ho unquestionably has aspira- j
tions for Presidential honors with j
which to crown his illustrious career, I
he feels confident that he can enjoy ;
such honors eight or twelve or more i
years hence as readily as now. These !
ideas have recently buen expressed j
by him'to his most intimate personal '
friends, aro unquestionably the ideas !
that will control him, notwithstand

used to win his consent to accept a ;
nomination. So says the New York |

A foreign correspondent says:
Queen Victoria is never cheered j
when she visits London now-a-days. j
The remark is that "tho people have
forgotten how to cheer." She fre?
quently visits town, but her carriages
are permitted to pa?;s in silence. The
people are either alienated or chilled
in their feelings toward her. Ou her !
birth-day, a week or two since, I wu*
struck with tho faintness and stingi?
ness of tho illuminations. She does
many eccentric things, to which allu?
sion is made in the papers iu a very
covert and veiled manner. For in?
stance, the SUir for Juno 1th refers to ',
the Queen's recent visit to tho Duke I
and Duchess of Sutherland at Clief?

expected by the Duke 'id Duchess,
