A laroe crowd htro all the morning- been on the scene of the disaster, view log the ruius, vrluou are gull smoking. Hau there been another steam firo engine, as there should be, we are aatisfled that much valuable property oould have been Bayed enough, indeed, )to purchase two or three engines. The tuanki or tbe pro perty holders and businessmen of Sbreve port are due to the gallant firemen who under extraordinary dithculties saved the city from destruction. Tho forogoing, ' whioh we clip from tho Shroveport Timea of tbo 20th inst., wo tnko as the text of an ar'.iclo it !b our purpose to write to tho city fathers and citizens of Dal las. It is but ft fragmont of tho goneral roport givon In that papor of tho fearful firo which occurrod in Sluovepott on the 16th inst., and by which more than 8400,000 of property was conuumod. Had the authorities of that City taken timo by the forolock and provided tho nocossary moans for tho exiin- guishruent of tho firo tumd, thore would havo boon no occasion now for tho journals of that place sug gesting that "had there beon an other stoam fire engine, much val uable, property could havo been saved enough, indood, . to pur, chaso two or three steam engines." They havo a fire department in Shroveport, however, and suflicient- ly strong to render valuable servi ces in tho protection ol tho propor ty of its merchants and land-lords, and by tho heroic labors perform cdby.ils members, tho city was saved, from porfect and comploto destruction not .moro than . one weok ago. llowwould it bo with Dallas.sliould a fire break out on Elm or Main St., during ono of tho hoavy north ors which not U'lfrequontly prevail in those regions r Can any matn. ematician in our city compute how many mon and bluo buckets it would take to savo the best pro tocted building along either ol thoBo streets, taking into consideration tho Trinity rivor as the only and most available water facility at our command? Suppose that an inven tory of any block from tha Crulch- fiold IIouso to the street below II C. Iloskins Drug Store was takon, and atjtho most reasonable estimate. how many steamers with, tho nee essary complimont.of hose at J4500 oach, would tho value of Buch block purchaso ? Again how much would bo annually savodto the morchants on thoir stocks and to the landlords on thoir buildings in tho reduced rales of Insurance, should they go earnestly to work and organize and equip two companies of firemon ? In ono year, wo venture' tho assor tion, tbat the savings in tho premi ums of Insurance alone, would yield every dollar necessary to establish a.nre department, .nut. ii,n com plained thut tho city is in debt,, that its treasury w empiytao, wji it is ontiroly'unabloto proVitre tho moans necessary to suppress tho most frightful and destructive elomont on earth. Wo do not wish to die tato, but to suggest a remedy, and ask that the live men of our city take into consideration tho crude theory in advnnco and from it di gest something tangible and ieasi bio, and' calculated to protect tho great in torost of this city from the ravages of firo wuicn may pecur in our midst at any moment. We weuld therefore suggost" that a mooting of tho substantial mon of tho place bo called and that this idoa bo discussed and systematized so as to Bccure the end sought, vie : That the city fathers bo TequoE.ed to add an additional tax upon tho assessed valuaCion of the property ' in our city sufflciont to 0015,000, and that each tax-ptvyev pledge himself to pay in cash tins' taic upon de mand by tho propor officer to col loot It. , No man in pnr city would be " required to pay.ovor $100, and thin s,ura, thus expended, Would b returned him at once in thoroduced rates of insuranco and in tho relief ovory prudent man would fool in knowing that his proporty wan protoctod and in a grcnt degroo se cure against absolute destruction either from incondiitry or acciden tal fires. Wo havo already trans ferred to our column a letter from conscionco-Btricken member . of tho Internationals in which a con fession was mado tbat tho city of Now Orleans had beon spottod by tbo burners and would ere long bo given to tho torch. Hero is anoth er lottor from another Internation al, which we tako from tho St. Lou- is Globo of tho 18th inst., in which tho plot to burn tho great city of St. Louis is exposed. All theso communications may bo nothing more or loss than sensation, but they certainly suggost tho impor tance of boing always roady. Will not somo of our readers tako this matter in hand ; our columns aro at their disposal for any sugges tions thoy may havo to oner: To the Hon. Mayor of St. Louis : 1 feel it my duty to inform you mat l am a members of a gantr whlsh is now at this burg si.. Louis, and whose duty ii is to bum down otlies such as Chicago, itos. ton. New York.

I think 1 am safe as they don't know which of our boys was so good as to write to you. There are six of us. We meet by the 1st of March. We are now peattered little, only here now. I could cause the arrest of us birt 1 would not like to full Into the dutches of the authorities tnysolf. We are paid by European monopolists to destroy property and American manufacturing, uuu so briug freight goods iu demand. We rent rooms so as to be neighbors lire breaks out accidentally. We transplant it oare. fullv so that it will play Hell generally, When a atari we Isuee m victory, auis is suflioient I suppose; you can do as you Dlease about it.

Tho futuro Bhould bo tho engrossing subject of every Jiour, . not , only as it tends to socular advancement, but also with duo regard to it's con nection with tho securing , of the "higher and hotter lifo" we aro all proinisod. -Ropinings over what is done, can by no poesibiiity benefit anyone, but an earnest effort, sup plemented by a strong determina tion, will not fail to bring the smilo of cheerfulness and tho tear of joy to many a drooping spirit, Many a soul ambitious, ana proua by nature, abandoning hope, and giving away to tho most pain ful and imaginary misgivings, has foundorod in tho vory flower of its growth, in tho vory midst of its usefulness, upon the unsur mountablo rock of despondency. Look around you at the busy throng that surrounds you, gain from thoir examplei new lifo, and insult not your manhood, by paying potty tributes to a pride, falsoin charao ter, that will not only: add to de gression, but detract from worth. YVn writo this for the benefit of strangers who may be in our midst, tboso who, taking a cursory glance at tho situation, yiold to their fears of failuro, oven beforo they strive for success ; they lack stability of charactor, and fixedness of purpore; to them we say; be patient, porsovo- rintr. but above all else bo boboful. ' I u . I .. A oounlry merohant, having procured new olerk, waked him np in the morning, after he was hired, at a most unreasona ble early hour by calling out that the family was sitting down to the. table. 'Thank you," said the boy, as he turned over In the bed to adjust himself W . new nap "Thank you t but I never allow niynK to. eat nj thing during lbs night," Spotted Fever, or Cerebro Spinal Mea , mgiui Editor Republican : Learning that this disease which is A congestion and lunate,- : malion of the brain and spinal centres is making sad bavoo in many parts. 1 am . constrained to seek a place in your eol- . : uaius to show the nature and means of speedily overcoming this terrible fatal,. malady.. As all congestions are follow., ed up immediately death or a reaction call- . ed fever or inflammation, the same o.eans ' are applicable to a (treat extent in all forms of congestion ; but more partiouUr . i ty in tnts disease are the emunetory or gans rendered so inactive that it beoomes , me first work, of the pbysioian to secure a prompt aotion of the skin and kidneys, to eliminate irom tbe blood the poisonous 1 matters that so suddenly prostrate the ' nervous -system and produce spasmodic. ' . symptoms and speedy disorganisations,, tbat are secondarily the result of para lysed functions of elimination. A hot bath if possible should be seoured by putting 1 the patient into a tub of water aa hot as maybe well borne, covering him well- with blankets, giving at the same time re peated doses of stimulating diuroties, , ,: acetate of potash, sweet spirits of nitre, aud spirits ofturpontine until the skin and kidneys are thoroughly aroused to ' action, whioh will atones change the fear- ' rut character or ibis disease. A mixture of bromide of potassium, spirits of tenpen- tine, sweet spirit, of nitre and diluted ni-ti'o-murtatlc acid beoomes next an lnvat-' 1 uable combination to alternate with the eliminative preparations of Iron, such as contain magnesia, soda and petasa in the form of sulphites, because they tend not Only to check the disorganisations of the Blood and reduce tne spasuiouic symptoms, but restore it its normal eoodHio by sup-j plying the blood and sicretiong with those elements that create the power that is so , palpably lost of maintaining nervooa " control of the general funotions of life. ' The InSamation, in the meantime,- should be controlled by suflioient doses of gelsa.;,' mium to oi eiite double Vision, as thisreme , dy above all others meets the require ments as a specific over this style oi infla mmation and should be continued as long'' as the inflammatien exists.' I make pub lic this treatment because it has always r proved eQioaoious in every case. 1 have . thus treated; and I believe that with elose ' adoption te the patiant, iu putting mua lard poultices to the extremeties as well as to the back of the neck, aad applying " liniment of acetate of ammonia, ohlorio either and oil of sassafras to the bowels , aud kidneys externally by saturating cloths with it, and covering with flannel '' and oiled silk or paper, at the tame time " applying pulverised gum camphor quilted v between two layers of flannel to the pit of , the slooiaoh, every case may be eured by the.foregoingtieiitmonl,evtt ltfug afTf U other measures would fall.
