Oor ofiir-o has tnXereJ front one e those
fsming visitations, that will sometimes c
ctir, fn spite of the greatest car. Lett
Eilur.la y ti'ghl this office wot discovered to
be c-n fire about 7 o'clock, and by prompt
exertions on the part of our friend i wit ex
tinguished, tut no, until a considerable
onantity of rostTis! ""as distroyed.
We must her return our warm ac
know!'r?r'cntt to our friend of the 'ju.es
tr.ntr and "Courier" for assistance. . VVa
ar indebted to the "Messenger'" for the
va of their pre mi, the tax list, markets, and
snt ih matter that appears on the inside
f this paper, except this column and one
ifrti'.weraneouj matter from thj "Courier."
We hope to get what ia left of the office
';tStt?&tlt(t bt- Curly -etsisr way a-!
in, ia the course of week or two. In
the mtaniione we earnestly request all in
debt to ns to pay np, for we (hail need all
thty owe, although the insurance money,
payable in ninety days, will cover the
damages
We muit be pardoned, under the cir-
eumtanccs, lor sending to soma of our
suUcnbcrs curat arid damaged sheets, and
to others but half a sheet, this week. We
had printed the first side when the fire took
rise; the paper thus half printed was
burnt on the edges, and far, of it entirely
ruined. We save all of this we can, and
finish the edition on half sheets. The la
bor of restoring the office to order mav
render it nocessarv to issue one or two
more numbers on half sheets; but after that
we shall print the paper as usual, -We
roust again ihank our friends who
put cot the fire: for on nutnr r an
, hour more headway would have been ruin
rine whole amount of insurance would
t 1 . I 1 r .
uui covercu oue-imra me loss.
How the fire occurred is beyond our
power to tell, We at fiwt thought it the
work of an incendiary, but the absence of
mnj luingiMauio uiuuvQ prcciuues mat laea.
If it was done to set somebody else on fire,
cur office certainly had papers enough to
. raise a suddeu blaze; but then It would
. eeem that even an incendiary would have
sens enough to put the fire where he want
ed It in the first place. Therefore, all we
- can state is, that we were careful; that uot
,,'withstandiag oar car the - fire-took .td
- - w fc''s fciate CoiTca'Jos.
It it now a settled matter that the Vih'g
Stale Coaren'Jon, wi 11 be held intb ei'y
ct St. Louis, on Urn third Mottity Ia April.
Ta lim and pi meet the entire appro
bation of th Whig in thisction. Whilst
we were willio to ro wherever the ma
jority might designate, rr thought St, Louis
the proper piece for the Electing. Let the
whig of this section, now go te work and
organic. Let each township ia this eounty
hold a meeting, nod send delegates to the
Couaty Convention, at Palmyra the first
Monday in April. At the Palmyra eonveo
tion, two delegates will be chosen to rep
resent this county la the Stole Convention,
snd alio two candidate will be selected
for (he Legislature. Every whig will see
the nevetsity of early ectioa & a thoureugh
rrj'JiiXiiion. We nope to every coun
ty in the Staia represented at St. Louis, so
that the best men asay be selected for the
various offices in the Stale. Our friend
will revserabe? that this convention will
noraiiute a ran li lute for each of tie follow
ing offices, vis : Governor, Lieut. Gov
ernor, Secretary of State, Auditor and Reg
ister of PuLiie Lani,d Iklentvt
to the National Conve&tisn, for the purpose
of nominating a candidate for the Presiden
cy. Let every township ia the State hold
a meeting and prepare for the contest which
is so near at hand let every Whig deter
mine to So his entire dbtj in iLia, to Mis
souri, most important struggle. With en
ergy and concert of action in the Whig
ranks, another victory awaits the party
more glorious than the last. The Demo
cratic party is divided in. every county in
the State. Discord and confusion in the
Locofoco ranks, which can nerer be recon
ciled, admonish the Whigs to be true to
themselves, their party, and their country,
and now that we have the second opportu.
nity of freeing Missouri from the misrule
of Locofocoism, let us not throw it away
WHIG STATE CONVENTION.
This Convention will be held in St. Lou
is, on the third Monday in April neat.
I3We are sorry to learn that the
health of Mr. J. B. Crocket is such a
to compel Mm to abandon for a while,
the editorial control of the St. Louis
Intelligencer. We hope a little re
creation and change of climate, will
soon restore him to his accustomed
health and that he will be abletoatand
at his post during the political con
wniuit wiii soon open in this Mate.

THE FLORAL FESTIVAL,
JLast Monday evening, was a sctn.a: ach w
one likes to store away in one corner of the
heart, with a pleasant consciousness that it is
destined to be brought forth frequently by mem
ory, in coming years, and gazed upon as you
wouia look on a pleasing picture. It was not
the gsy arch, or the green cedar, or the bright
flowers, though these were all tasteful decora
tions; it was not alone the white dresses, or the
-pretty wreaths, or the handsome happy faces, or
even the beautiful mutio that we heard frnm lh
sixty very young ladies; or the pleased counte-
.nances of the crowded audience; but it was the
certainty that the hearts of five hundred people
were beating quicker at the same time with
freshened feelings of delight. ' ;
By the way, a very amiable and benevolent
young gentleman said to us very solemnly, that
evening we know he was in raptures, for he
looked it" Would that all those pretty young
creatures had but one neck, that I might kiss

sweetly and naturally on the ear.
"Pretty Bird" deserved to be repeated, as it
was and the little singer merited the admiration
awarded to her.

It rang out so joyously, that we know it touched
chorus in many a heart there that r.ight, which
had been seared over by care, long years ago.
We can't particularize any more; but for three
weeks' training, the performance of all the
. srirls was certainly astoiJshinsr, and reflected

Of course we must have another Floral Festival
Mr. Paciabd should by all means be encour
aged to take up a second school.
We cannot close this hurried notice without
inserting a very sensible remark Mr. Packabd
made to the audience: "Only get on the right
aide of children," said he, "and you mav make
t in . .1 ..
hoh you win vi mem.
We agree with the "Messenger" in the views
expressed in one article copied into another col
umn: that township meetings should be held to
select delegates to the County Convention, to be
held at Palmyra, on the fir'it Monday in April;
jend that this County Convention should nominate
Candidates for the Legislature, and select two
delegates from the county to the State Conven
tionj and that the most appropriate nlae and
ume for holding the latter would be at St. Louis,
and on the third Monday in April; indeed, this
whose matter is now fully settled.

intelligence was received at Lloyd's,
London, under date Malta, Monday,
tne sin ultimo, oi a most awtul occur
rence at the Island of Sicily, which
had been swept by two enormous wa
ter spouts, accompanied by a terrific
hurricane. Those who witnersed the
phenomena describes the waterspouts
as two immense spherical bodies of
water recching from the clouds, their
cones nearly touching the earth, and.
as far at could be judged, ate quarter
of a mile apart, travelling with im-
, . , mi
uicnjo velocity, iney passed over
the island near Aarsala. In their pro
gress houses were unroofed, trees up
rooted, men and women, horses, cat
tle, and sheep raised up, drawn into
the vortex, and borne on to destruc
tion; during their passage, rain de
scended in cataracts, accompanied
with hail-stones of enormous size and
masses ot ice. Going over Castell
marra, near Mabia, it destroyed half
the town, and washed two hundred of
me innaouanis into the sea, who all
perished. Upwards of fire hundred
persons have been destroyed by this
senium Tisuauon, ana an immense a

crews drowned. After the occurrence
numbers of dead human bodies were
picked up, all frightfully mutillated

A NiwifAPia Doo. The Albany
Knickerbocker boasts that it has in iti of
fice a dog that will lick any dog in the State
for natural sagacity. It belongs to one of
the carriers, which it accompanies in h?
round of deliv ery of about six hundred pa
pers. The carrier fell sick but said the
dog would do hi duty, and sure enough he
did. A boy carrying the papers followed
the dog, which stopped and wnged his tail
at. aut of every subscriber, never
misting ane of the six hundred subscribers.
