der, near the ruins ol Jay no's warehouse,
Vine, near Water 6treet. The third bodj
was that of an interesting buy- nine year
ol age, found beneath a pile of bricks it
the gutter, on the west side of Front si reel
about fifty yards below Vine.. His bodv
was discovered by his foot appearing abov
the stones. His forehead was shockinglx
crushed by the lulling bricks, but hi
body did not appear to be otherwise iu
iured.
The coroner is reviewing the remains a
the Green House, sent thither to await re
cognition. Of the nine bodies there, mos
of them, however, are so much charred by
tlie fire or mangled by the Ifccts of tin
explosion, as to prevent their nearest am
dearest friends from identifying them.
The rennsIvanian oPthe 12ih says
There were a couple of little incidents oc
curred during the fire, which we believt
have not yctappeared iu print. It appear
that while the fire was at its very height
and families were removing their furnitun
in every direction, an accordcon, amon
other things, a as thrown on Callowhil
street wharf. A staUart son of Africa
who had been working on the engine, an.
was taking a rest near where these article
ha. been deposited, feeing the musical in
strument, could nut, in spite of the heart
tending scenes that surrounded him, fore
go the temptation of treating himself to t
little music. He accordingly picked up 01
accordron, and having picked out a com
fortable seat on a v. barf log, commencet
playing away to the delightof some twenty
or thirty idlers, and continued until tin
tumbling of a wall, created a general rush
which came very near pitching our darkey
in the Delaware. The say ing.that Nen
fiddled while Rome was in flames,'' is no
fully realized.
A respectable Frenchman, who, by in
dustry and frugality, a-nas$cd a considers
Lie sum, enough to allow him to retire fron
buwuessj owned a court, some squares
from where the fire occurred. It happened
to be rent day with some of his tenants
and he had accordingly taken the cool ol
i ho ovonins, fur the purpose of making hi
collection but what was astonishment and
mortification to find that his tenants had
removed without giving the customary
notice, and his houcs a perfect mas of
ruins ! The Frenchman bore his misfor
tune like a philosopher and philanthropist,
he appeared to think but little of his own
loss, and gave all his sympathy to the real
EbfTeiers by the calamity.
The Times of the 12th says : At pre
wmt, the appearance of our city wears an
air of mourning. Almost count 'ess num-
bers of houses, as it were, completely en
shrouded in the habiliments of mnurnin"
for lost friends who sacrificed their lives in
their efforts to save the lives and the prop
crty of their fellow men, and tlinse belong
ing to their own fam;ly circles, whost
homes have been rendered almost friend
less by their absence. The reality is, in
deed, startling. Thousands of persons an
at this very moment roaming about in

and died at Washington, in the District of;
Columbia, on the 0th day of July, 1850,
at the age of 60 years. As it will be
seen by the accompanying despatch, the
last words he uttered indicated a conscious
ness of rectitude iu his official duties, and n
cheerful readiness to promptly obey '.hi
fearful and sudden summons.
The following is the despatch from out
orrespondent, received at 11 o'clock.P.M
Telegraphed far the Baltimore Sun.'
Washi.w.ton, July 911 P. M.
The mournful duty devolves upon mo U
announce to vou the death of Gen. Zacha
ry Taylor, President of the Uuited Slate,
of America, which took place at thirty-fivi
minutes past ten o'clock.
As soon as the rumor obtained circuhi
lion last evening that an unfavorable chung'
had tuken place in the condition of tin
President, the w hole citv was in commotion,
md hundreds of our citizens, without dis
unction.repaireu to the hxecuiive mansion
inxiously inquiring into his true condition
and evincing a decree of solicitude as to
his fate that indicated the deep hold his pri
vate as well as public character had madt
in the hearts of all. Every countenance
was marked by grief, and- fervent prayer.-
were uttered for the success of the physici
ans in restoring their distinguished patien
to his country, his family, and his friends.
At half past 8 o'clock in the evening tin
physicians in attendance reported to me
that congestion ofthe brain had commenced.
mil that every ten minutes, there was an
fibrt to vomit, accompanied by an effusion
if greenish bile, all the symptoms indica
ting a speedy dissolution. Shortly after
wards he somewhat revived, and continued
visy for sometime, but at half past 0 o'clock
tie again began to sink. He appeared con
scious lo the last, and so firm and collected
hat some w ho were present entertained the.
pinion that he would survive until morn
mg, but as already stated he ceased l
breathe at thirty-five minutes pa.-t ten
clock. The last coherent words uttered
try the venerable patriot were carefully
noted down, as follows : "I we I am ex
pecting THR .SITMMONS 1 AM BEADY TO
MUET DEATH 1 HAVE ENDEAVORED FAITH
I'l'LLY TO DISCHARGE MY Dl'TY 1 AM SORRY
TO LEAVE MY FRIENDS !''
The members of the Cabinet, a nuinhei
if officers of the Army and Navy.the May-
r and other Corporation cfiicers, the
United States .Marshall, District Attorney,
md a host of personal friend, were in at
tendance, whilst a largo concourse of citi
zens sorrowfully awaited the result.
Mrs. Taylor, ho has been most devoted
n her at'endance dav and night, is now ut-
cily prostrated, whilst his immediate fam
ly are stricken with grief that can not 1m
comforted by human aid.
i may saieiy venture to assert that m.
one, from so short a residence at the me-
tropi lis, could have won a higher degret
of esteem find respect than our deceasec
President. I lis benevolence, courteoui
rnannersand amiable deportment seemed
to disarm even the prejudices of those who
jwere politically opposed to him, and had
fsecurej to him an almost unprecedented
'personal esteem nnd popularity.

MILLARD FILLMORE.
Washington, July 10, 1850.
Committees were duly appointed by
both Houses to notify the President that
they would be present at the appointed
time aud place to witness his iuauguration.
At 12 o'clock, M., the Senate proceeded
to the bull of the House of Representa
tives accordingly, and the very august
spectacle was there exhibited, iu the pres-
ucc of both houses aud of a lare crowd
if strangers, of the new Chief Magistrate
taking the oath of office, which was ad
ministered to him by Judge Crunch, of
the District Court of the United States at
Washington. Mr. Fillmore, when he en
tered the hall, was accompanied by the
joint committee, and most of the members
of the late cabinet. As soon as the oath
was administered, he once more rose and
left the hall, accompanied by the others,
and the Semite returned to their chamber.
The following message was then received
from the President of the Uuited States :
Filoic-C'ifizfii of tin: Sruute
and House of jrecntatices:
A great man has fallen among us, and
a whole country is called to au occasion oil
unexpected, deep, and general mourning
I recommend to the two houses of Con
gress to adopt such measures as in their
discretion may seem proper, to perform
with due solemnities the fuueral obsequies
of Zachahy Iayloe, late President ot
the I wted States, and thereby to siguify
the great and affectionate regard of the
American people for the memory of one
whose life has been devoted to the public
service : whose enrccr in arms has uot been
surpassed in usefulness or brilliancy: who
lias been so recently raised by the unsoli
cited voice of the people to the highest
authority m the government, which 1
administered with so much honor and ad-
vantaire to his country, aud by whose sud
den death so many hopes of future useful-
uess have been blighted forever.
To you, senators and representatives oi
t nation in tears, X can fay nothing whicl
an alleviate the sorrow with which vou
ire oppressed.
I appeal to you to aid me, under the
trying circumstances which surround me.
in the discharge of the duties from which,
however much I may be oppressed by
them, j dare not stirinK j anil l rely upon
1 1 mi who holds in His hands the destinies
if nations to endow me with the requisiti
strength for the task, and to avert from

Pay lor. The sun rose bright and clear.and
the air was cool and pleasant. The fact
that Geri.Taylor is ihe first President who

During all this ti.r.e, the tolling of bells and
the firing of minute guns, together with the

tSrWe this week, to the exclusion of
Agricultural and Editorial matter, give a
full accounts as our space can well afford
of t' e startling ami momentous events of
he past week ; and presume this course
will be as satisfactory to the great major-
ty of our readers, as any other we could
have pursued
Anothkr Compromise. It is stated
that since the death of Gen. Taylor, a
aucus of Members of Congress bus been
held, at which it was agreed to adopt the
14th parallel of north latitude as a com
promise liuc on the Slavery question, giving
Texas that part of Xew Mexieo which lies
south of that line, aud ceding to New
Mexico all of Texas lying north of that
line and that this plan is likely to be
arricd into effect, subject to the consent
of the people of southern California so far
is they are affected by it
Jfc-It is stated that the Taylor Cabinet
have tendered their resignations to Presi
dent Fillmore, but that he has not yet
Opened their letter. Many conjectures an
hazarded as to the formation of his Cabi
act, and the policy of his administration :
but nothing certain is yet kuown. Mr
Fillmore is what may be termed a Clay
Whig, and a tolerably accurate idea of bis
future course may be formed from that fact.
tejf"The harvest weather was very Cue
last week, and most of the farmers in this
section cut their grain, but the rains at
the beginning of this week will incoinniodt
such of them as had not yet hauled in
the corn and potato crops however will be
greatly benefitted. We are told the wheat
crop this season is the best ever known ii
this part of the country.

Mr. Editor : Not knowing who was elec
ted High Constable at the last Borough
Llection, I would take this method of in
forming him, or the proper officers of the
Borough, that some of our citizens are
imposed on, from the fact tnat a nuantitv
of timber, lumber, w:;gons. manure. &c".
Ac., have been hauied and scattered thro"
some of our r.rreets and alleys, making
them impassible for citizens to get to their

that these thiol's will be better attended

this purpose, why not attend to their du
