serious Fires In Constantinople.
gg, A correspondent of the St. Louis In
telligencer, writing from Constantinople, under
date0f Aug. Hth, says:
"Fire I fire! fire!" We hear hut little else
0W in Constantinople but the cry of fire. It
really see m sometimes as though this whole ci

gome faint idi-- f the amount of suffering from
il is evil, I will briefly recapitulate rhe doings of
single week. Wednesday night a fire decla
red itself in the city proper, iu a quarter called
the "Fruit Bazaar." It continued burning for
f Te Lours steadily, having consumed at least
three hundred and eighty-four stores and shops
containing fruit, oil, tobacco, salt, &c. &c.
gome dwelling houses, also, were burned, and
me cuard house and one police office. During
the same night ten houses were burnt at Yemi
Keni, on the Bosphorus.
On Thursday afternoon a fire caught in Pera
the residence of the Europeans. It began in
fl painter's shop, and could not be subdued until
it had consumed one hundred dwellings and one
hundred and fifty stores and shops. Ono guard
house was also destroyed, rand the celebrate
lervishe"s establishment, which every travelled
risits to see the Dervishe's whirl. The same
night were two other destructive fires ; one at
Scutari, where twenty houses were reduced to
smoke and ashes, and the other nt Hass Keni,
which continued for five hours, Jand consumed
hbaut four hundred house and shops.
On Friday a single house (a large one) was
liurntinthe quarter called Sultan Mehemet.
Tffo other fires broke out on Saturday, in Gala
t i, hut were soon extinguished.
On Monday, Sultan Ahmed, one of the most
beautiful quarters of the capital, was visited by
h most destructive conflagration. Four hun
dred large Turkish houses the residences of
gentlemen of fortune were consumed within a
lew hours. Two mosques also became a prey to
On Wednesday, to close up the week's work,
the insasiate element seized hold of the Arme

nvnges until at least eighteen hundred houses
were destroyed, and four thousand families,
nvft of them miserably poor, were turned into
-What'' you will ask, "is the meaning of al
this ." I answer that the oldest inhabitants
here sny that this is the season for fires. All
the largest and most devastating conflagrations
that have ever been known in Constantinople
have taken place in August and September.
The reason of this fact is, that the houses are
the driest, and the winds are strongest. The
least spark will kindle into a flame, and when
once a fire breaks out, it is difficult to extin

Pompeii was not completely buried by a sin

traced above its ruins. In the intervals
the inhabitants must have returned to

iaa was fouud, "who apparently for the sake of
''0 cuius, a small plate, and a saucepan of silver
liatl remained iu his house till the street was al
ready half filled with volcanic matter." The
position of the skeleton indicated that he had
jerished apparently in the act of escaping from
liis window. (Xther instances of like character
are no less striking. The skeletons of Roman

Second It makes cleaner and sweeter Cider
than other machines.
Third You can make your Cider as you want

your time in making Apple Butter.
Sixth By its use you can at all times have
FRESH and SWEET Cider.
The price of the Cider Mill, with right to use
the same on any farm, is $30.
The size of this Machine is about 3 by 3 feet,
and weight about 150 pounds. It may readily
be taken to the cellar, door-yard, kitchen, barn
floor, or orchard, as may be most convenient.

ONLY TRUE PORTRAIT OF WASHINGTON.
T. B. WELCH S MAGNIFICENT
PORTRAIT OF WASHINGTON.
Engraved (by permission) from Stuart's only ori
ginal portrait, in the Athcneum, Boston.
This superb picture, Engraved under the su
perintendence of Thomas Sully, Esq., the emi
uent and highly gifted artist, is the only correct
likeness of Washington ever publUhed. It has
been characterised as the greatest work of art
ever produced in this country. As to its fideli
ty, we refer to the letters of the adopted boo of
Washington, George Washington Park Custis,
who says, it is a faithful representation of the
celebrated original," and to Chief Justice Ta
ney of the Supreme Court of the United States,
who says, "As a work of art its excellence and
beauty must strike every one who sees it : sn
it is no less happy in its likeness to the Father
of his country. It was my god fortune to nave
seen him in the days of my boyhood, and ins
whole appearace is yet 6trongly impressed ou
my memory. The portrait you have issued ap
pears to me to be an exact likeness, representing
perfectly the expression as well as the form and
features of the face." And says Senator Cass,
it is a life-like rrjtresentation of the great original.
President Fillmore says, 'the work appears to
me to have been admirably executed and eini
inently worthy of the patronage of the public."
Says Marchant the eminent portrait painter, and
the pupil of Stuart, "your print to my mind is
more remarkable than any other I have seen,
for presenting the whole individuality of the ori
ginal portrait, together with the noble and dig
nified repose of air and manner, which all who
ever saw him considered a marked characteris
tic of the illustrious man it commemorates."
