BY ONE WHO HAS BEEN WHERE TREY ARE
Tho writer left Aslilabnla on Hie I:.'I2;
r. M, train, Saturday, July lOlh for N'eW
York, ami various points in New York,
for '.he purpose of purchasing uniform
for Proteci ion fire couimny figuring for
a hose carriage or jumper, nnd tovxauiiue

, Y. stale is justly eeleliraled. A stop
of two hours was made at Erie, and the
department at that cily hurriedly examin
ed. It was f'luud in excellent condition and
conducted about on the plan of our own
duiarlmeni. Richusler, N. Y. was reach
ed early Sunday morning, anil mi Monday
visits were made lo the various branches of
its lire department. Rochcaler has the
reputation, and boasts of one of the best
regulated, most Wfeclive and gentlemanly
fire departments in the land. The depart
ment is excellently distributed about the
ity where it will be most effective in case
of lira. Every apparatus was found in
perfect order, and tiie men at their posts.
Rochester has two independant hose com
panies the Alerts and Actives and the
Protective' a supply company in wli ch
she lakes special priJe. These companies
were all vi,iicd in the writer's ramblings,
through the kindness of an old school
mule Mr. Will S. Woodruff, first assist
ant of the Alert hose company the writer
was enabled to glean much valuable infor
mation The Alerts were organized in
1WI2, and are one of the oldest and most
efficient fire companies in the state. They
occupy an elegant three story brick house
uo Filzhugh street, furnished in the most
complete manner throughout. Attach
ments are connected with the fire alarm
telegraph in such a manner, that when a
fire occurs doors are thrown open, gas
turned on. men alarmed and in eight to
ten seconds the machine, after the first
stroke of the gong, is on its way to the
fire. The uniforms worn by this company
look the prize at the Fireman's convention
held at Canan.laigua, N. Y., lost fall out
of the large number of crack companies
present. The new uniforms for Protection
company, will be precisely like them ex
cept in color. Mr. Frank P. Ranney the
popular gents furnisher of Rochester, was
awarded the contract formakingthe shirts,
blue shirts being adopted in place of rod,
with a while regulation fire hat with blue
front piece in place of black worn by the
Alert Company. The Actiye hose com
pany are pleasantly located on North St.
Paul street in a neat brick house.
The apparatuses run by both these celebrat
ed companies are I rum the shops of Sam
ual M. Stewart, of H.Hjhester, and are ele
gant pieces of workmanship. They carry
nothing but extra hose. The Proticlives
occupy temporary quarters on Mill street,
having sold their old brick headquarters
for a more convenient location upon which
they will build immediately. The duties
of this old reliable, favorite company at
fires,is the saving and protection of pro.
perty. They are provided with buckets,
cavass, ropes, axes, fire extiuguishers, etc.
Their record is a matter of pride to the
city us well as the company. The wheeled
fire extinguisher hook and ladder carria
ges, steam engines and other apparatuses
drawn by horse power are all provided with
the most improved attachments for the
speedy hitching of teams, so that no time
may be lost in reaching the scene of a fire.
Chief Gibson is untiring in his efforts to
keep the department in perfect condition.
From Rochester the writer yisied the city of
New York where some twenty different fire
companies and branches of its mammoth
department were visited and inspected.
New York is the stalwart headquarters for
firemen in the United Slates. It is simply
perfect, and anything like a description
would fall far short of the mark. While
il is equalled by departments in oilier
cities in some special point, it is excelled
by none. Its steam propelling and horse
power steamers, hose carts, hook and lad
der and all its apparatus, firemen are ever
prompt to save. The hats for Protection
company were purchased in New York-und
will be made by Messrs. J. Carina & Bros.,
whose reputation is far famed for this
class of work. Syracuse was next visited
and two or three hours pleasantly whiled
away inspecting her department. Seneca
Falls was next in order. This is one of the
most delightful towns in all New York,
grandly situated on the Anburn branch o'
the N. York Cetitral road, Here is locat
ed the works of the famous Silsby Manu
facturing Company makers' of the cele
brated Silsby Steam Are engines and other
apparatus. The writer was cordially wel
comed by one of the junior members of the
firm and shown through the very extensive
works of the concern. We believe this is
the only house in the U. States that man
ufacture everything used in the construct
ion of tins class of goods. About 150 men
are employed in the various shops. These
men are all skilled, intelligent thinking
workmen. Everything about the building
was in the most perfect order and each
branch of the business is sepurate and dis
tinct. The demand for these superior
machines is constantly increasing and are
fast taking the place of Clapp & Jones
engines in the East. The best two wheel
ed jumpers seen any where were found
here, and the best four wheled cairiage
(nothing like the bulky, heavy carriage,
now used by Protection .&.,) at the works
of S. M. Stewert in Rochester. The Silsby
Folks manufacture a patent heater for
steam firo engines. No steamer should be
without one, especially in Ashtabula and
other towns where no teams are kept in
waiting to draw the engines to fires, and
where it takes so long to get up Steam
with a cold boiler. Every where East, fire
men stand high in the estimation of the
peoplo and everything to advance their
cause and make their dangerous work as
safe and easy as possible is done. The
life of the fireman is a hazardous and

he did not return that night, there was a

English fluently. Their first move after
entering town, was for a pair of scales,
where, while being weighed, they indulg

twenty pounds," "That's nothing I've

ANOTHER STEAMBOAT DISASTER.
This is a year of steamboat disasters.
The latest, and one of the most frightful,
occurred about ten o'clock last week Thurs
day evening, on the Detroit river, nine
miles below the city, caused by a large ex
cursion steamer, the Garland, running
down a small steam yacht, the Mamie, on
which were twenty-four persons, sixteen of
whom were lost in the disaster. The As
sociated press reports say that the excur
sion steamer Garland, with 1200 persons
on board, under the auspices of the Detroit
Moulder's Union, collided with the yacht,
cutting her in two, so that she ssuk in
about ten minutes. The twenty-four per
sons on board consisted mainly of Trinity
Roman Catholic church f Detroit, and a
number of acolytes or alter boys of the
church. The party had been on an excur
sion and were returning home. The night
was bright and moonlight, and the acci
dent was caused by unpardonable negligence.
The Egyptian Obelisk has arrived in
New York and lies at Twenty-third street,
in the North River, awaiting a place npon
which to stand it.
The story of the obelisk is that it was
erected by Thotraes Third, some 1,500
years B. C, and counts three and a half
centuries age. Its position upon Ameri
can soil, considering the task of taking

Honored and Blessed.
When a board of eminent physicians
and chemists announced the discovery that
by combining some well known valuable
remedies, the most wonderful medicine
was produced which could cure such a
wide range of diseases that most all other
remedies could be dispensed with, many
were skecplical; but proof of its merits by
actual trial has dispelled all doubt, and to
day the discoverers of that great medicine,
Hop bitters, are honored and blessed by all
