About onw o'clock, on Monday mbrning

Levee street, (river side) between Leoni

property next above, owned and tenanted
by Mr. Bakerbread, and also'to the build

Betz and owned by the Windhors., with
also the residence of Mr. W.'s 'fkmily.
The buildings with the greater portion of
their contents,'outhouses, &c., &c., were
entirely consumed. Loss estimated near
10,000--insurance about 38,000.

The truth of the Argus' statementm s
fully borne out by the New York
World, (republican,) which says:
Strong as the republicans thought
themselves two months ago, they are
now beginning to see that the New
York election is to be one of the most
hotly conteested ever known in the state,
and that they must not any longer rest
their hopes of success on .the divisions
and weakness-of the enemy.
?Republican Z.dniquity and Rrpubli
can Quarrels.-Au active member of
the Black Republican party, named
Littlejohn, who has been speakerof the
New York House of Assembly for so
vertl years, and the leader and manager
of the republican lobby, has been pub
licly castigated in the Tribune for his
bad coua:ct. Littlojohn thereupon
writes a letter endeavoring to Drove
the official integrity of his conduct;
but Greelcy replies with curt facts, and
reiterantes his principal charges. The
dislike of tihe pl'oll( to the conduct of
the republienn legislature is so great
that even the Tribuno has now thus to

A Just and Timely Remark.-Let
the issue -of the present contest be what
it may, we are quite sure of one thing
and that ds, but a short time will elapse
before <most of those who have been
busy in maligning and traducing Mr.
Bell andl Mr. Evertt will be heartily
sorry-.that partisan prejudice and party
feelingeover induced them to do injus
tice to .these .distinguished statesmen
and patriots. In er out of power, they
will graduaily descend to the grave,
accompanied by the admiration and
respect of their country. Men will
hereafter regret that any party, or any
portion of a party, should have at
tempted to blur the fame of .twe of the
most conservative, most excellent,most
deserving and most worthy citizens of
the republie. Those who, at this day,
represent iu an odious light the charac
ters of Bell and Everett, will, uin i
probability, after a few short years
shall have rolled around, find it oteces
sary to excuse andl palliate the course
they at presetut pursue.-[Alexandria
