dealers in naval stores and cotton, and t
Henry t'lucas, dealer in cordage. The ,
latter occupied tbe first floor, and Dibble (
& Co. the basement and upjier floors. ,
Tbe origin of the the is not yet aaeer- j
taiucd. The flames burned with the |
greatest ftuy in the basement, where n |
large quantity of spirits of turpentine ,
and rosin was stored. Koon after the tire A
began several slight explosions occurred, j
wliich weresupposeil to have been caused .
by barrels of turpentine. The books be- '
longing to Messrs. Dibble A Co. were (
locked up in the safe, which is still in
the ruins. Mr. Dibble left the cily on
Saturday evening, and in bis absence 1

CORRY O'LANIS ON INDIAN*-'.
Indian summer Is a very plt-iw.ll t

The Indians aro entitled to general
gratitude for inventing this Hecond edi
tion of lutnmer, short an it It.
Their meteorological ideas wero good,
so far au they went—-about ten days. But.
il must bo considered that their educa
tional advantages were limited.
They had no public schools, with pret
ty Inula teachers ami an economical
Board of Education.
The pastimes were hunting the wild
deer ami following the roe, anil lighting
each other. Scalping people waa one of
the most plmring diversions.
Scalping la quite an interesting opera
tion, except to the party operated upon,
it consists of taking all Ihe hair oil tho

There were Indians at one time on

On account of had whisky.
I ilon't know what the Indians ever
did for ihe cigar business, but the only
public interest evinced in the red man
is by the cigar store men, who areerect
iug wooden monuments to the Indiana
all over the city.
Thus the memory ol the Indian is pre
served in his native wood.
I'l-ople who have studied (he abori
gines in their native woods, say they
prefer the Indians in wood lo tin-In
dian- in the woods.
There is one thing more to be said of
the cigar tribe: they are always smoking
the pipe of petu-e.
Where the Indian came from before
he lii st. landed in America, is it ques
tion still open for Investigation, Rut so
far the American people have been less
concerned about tho Indian's coming
than his going.
The Indian cannot b'i put to any
His complexion is not dark enough
for politics. Nobody demands sull'ragc
for the red man.
Massachusetts never took the slightest
interest in him, except to kick hitn out
of the Common wealth and appropriate
his lauded possessions.
The South wouldn't light for him.

Otherwise, nothing can ever be made

The Indian, liko mosquitoes and pub

some wise purpose.
The Cologne Gazette, gives the follow
ing account of a singular incident which
bos recently given rise to diplomatic
correspondence between the Dutch and
Prussian governniei.v.,, whe „ fk)untfHS
ltylanilt, wife of the new ii„i c i. „,■„•<,
terat Berlin, went to join her " ™ b , °',"i
some days since, the Prussian custo,,..
oilicers, acting tinder -the regulations
. made to prevent the importation of the
• cattle disease, refused to allow her lttp
, dog to pass the frontier without uuder
. going the prescribed quarantine. In
vuin did the Countess protest that
though her favorite came from Holland,
'. where the dreaded disease prevailed, it
, had never been near any infected cattle;
, the oilicers persisted in refusing, and
. the poor animal was left to undergo its
. probation. A diplomatic correspon
dence was tho consequence, after which
the dog was released from quarantine
and restored to its mistress.
Discoursing upon the general subject
' of employment for women, the Cincin
-1 nati Commercial makes an observation
' which is calculated to arouse serious re>
j (lection, as follows : "We do not hesl
' tate to say that nine-tenths of "the
- wedded woe" in this country is due to
1 the fact that unportioned girls are com
pcllcii by pressure of necessity to. accept
■ offers of marriage simply to secure
'■ homes, and without consulting their
1 hearts in the dreadful business. This
1 ought not tn be. Woman should he wel
•' coined to any profession or avo-atloit tv
- life that her inclination or interest
1 prompts her to adopt. Not only this,
" she should be educated to one or the
' other of them."
1 The lish commissioners, who were ap
. pointed by the last Massachu-etts Leg
islature to investigate the question ofre
, stocking the Merrimack and Coiinectl
- cut rivers with lish, have sent in their
I report to Governor Andrew. The cori
- elusion of their investigation la that in
. order to restock the rivers with lish,
0 tishways must he built, the pollution of
0 the water by chemicals used in manu
facturing prevented, salmon must be
br.-d at the head of the rivers in New
. Hampshire, aud the use of weirs and
•- nets be forbidden in Coiineclicnt. Vari
e ous methods of constructing tishways
■ are presented.
c Kecretary Mcf'ulloch hat returned to
- Washington from New York. His in
', terview with the moneyed men is said
■ to have been entirely satisfactory. The
•s banks offered him, says n Washington
c special, a temporary loan of Si 00,000,000,
't which he will probably accept. He eon.
c templates funding $50,000,000 or $100,

a The Hamburg ship Ne\i ton, Captain
rt Herring, from New York for Hamburg
• came ashore at Nantucket Sunday night
• aud went to pieces. All hands were
lost. Ono man swam ashore, but died
' from exposure after walking half a mile
along the beach. His life-preserver was

.. 1,200 barrels of kerosene oil have been
' saved from the wreck.
\ The Republican statesmen of Mexico
