Kxtenslv Flre-iroof Building Burned Out. About 2 o'clock this morning the priva'e watchman on tho eastern side of Front street, between Kaco and Vine streets, discovered smoke issuing lrom the crevices of the iron shutters ou the second floor of the expensive fire-proot building ou the southwest curuer of front aid Mew street", lie immediately give the alarm, and through the use of the fire alarm telegraph the firemen of the Second, Third, aud l ourtti Lisiricis were nouaen, and taey 60on arrived ou the ground. Hy the time that water was got ou to the structuie the flumes had worked their way by means of the hatchway to the rooi, wutcn was Boon destroyed. 'Ihe tire, in consequence ot the combustible nature of the contents, burned rapidly, and in a lew Uiinutes the building, irom tue secoi.d-story uo. was in names, ihe uremen were uuablc to get water on the Humes, owing to the impossi bility ol breaking opeu the iron shutters, and they had to content themselves with playing the aqueous fluid over the walls aud roof, and the surrounding property wnicn was considerably threatened by bits ot burning wcod which were blown in every direction. Tne school-house adjoining the property on New sireet was in itnunuont danger on several occasions, but through the splendid manage ment of Chief McCasker, who kept teverul streams of water constantly playing on it, it was saved. The flames in the burnlne buildins were not (Uienched until the whole of the uop?r nart was itcstrosed, and nothing is left this morning but the hist tloor and the wall.. which had been will built. The origin of the tire Is a mystery at present, but the suppo-itiou U that it was caused by spontaneous combus'ion, as the floor on which the flames were first seen contained an execedinely large quantity of wool and cotton. Xhe ouiidmg consisted ot two compartments four stores in hticrlit, separa'cd by a stout wall and iron aoors. ine larger one was 43 leet on Front stitet, and about 100 leet ou New street; and the smaller ono about the same width, and (iU leet on New street.

The third and fourth floors were occupied by II. A. Bartlett & Co., blacking manufacturers. Their entire stock was destroyed, but we could not learn their loss or insurauce. Mr. Thomas Earp had 100 barrels of lard in tie cellar, and they buffered to a considerable extent by water. The smoke occasioned by tho burning cotton, wool and grease was very dense, and interfered much with the operations ot the firemen. Seve ral times the surrounding property was in Im minent danger, and at ouo time, when the burn ing embers were flying around, a lire similar to that ot 1850 was threatened. Tee Red Men. This morning, at half-past 8 o'clock, the formal dedication ot the new hall of the Independent Order of Hed Men, at Third and Brown streets, came off in the presence of a crowded assembly. The ceremony was per formed in the spacious hall upon the first Hoar ol the building. A procession consisting of the Officers of the U rand Lodge ot the United States, and Directors and Committee ot Arrangements of the ball, was formed in the roomot the Grand Lodge of the United S'ates, on the third floor. Thence the procession weut to the mam hall. A large platform was erected in the hall, directly opposite tho principal entrance. Upon this tlatform seven of the members of the Grand iOdge had stations. The President of the Hall Association, Oot tleib Frank, advanced to tho "Chief Pow hat tan" (Mr. C. Koescr, of Mewark, N. J.); aud formally delivered to him tho hall. Then the Chief ordered the "Great Warrior" (Frank fcebroiU, of Pittsburg. Pa ), to li-jht the Council fiie. The fire was lighted, aud the "Warrior" reported that it burued biiieluly. A chant was then sung by the entire Order. The "High Pii.'st," (Mr. Quiu, of Baltimore. Maryland), ollered a prayer afier the ignition of the council tire. "Chief Pow hattan" then re turned tlie hall to the Lodyes of Pouns Ivauia, through Philip Law, of the Husquehunna Lodge, No. 1!), of Pennsylvania. Another hymn wa chuMtcd.

Elliotson was born in London towards the end ot the last century, and was educated for the medical profession at the University ol Edin burgh and Cambridge. Alter having subse oucntlv passed through a three ycir' course at St. Thomas and Guy Hospitals in London, he was elected physician ot the latter, and In tbat capacity distinguished himself by the reform of several administrative anuses iu tnat institution as w ell as by the adoption of some new prescrip tires, among them those of prusic acid In affections of .the stomach, of hvdroci'tnlc acid. and of creosote. These, with his discoveries In the use of the ttethoscope, roused tbe opposi tion ot nis personal ureiuren, ana Drought great deal of ridicule upon him, without, how ever, aiiecting bis reputation, which was greatly increased by a course ot clinical lectures which he delivered in London about tbat time. In 1&31 he accepted a protessor's chair in the Uni versity, and the course of lectures he delivered immediately after was published iu The Lincet asd Ihe Medical Gazette, la 1837 he turned his attention to the subject of animal magnetism and having made a variety of experiments which satisfied him of its remedial efficacy, he applied this mysterious ageut to the treatment of certain affections which were up to that time considered incurable, ins experiments ex cited public curiosity to the highest pitch; but his new doctrine as to the curative powers ot magnetism, while it made many converts raised up a host of adver saries against nim, and no was ultimately com pclled to resign the professor's chair which he held. lie was subsequently lnttrumental in etablisbirg a hospital for tbe treatment ot patients ou mesmeric principles, became tbe founder of the Phrenological Society, of which he was elected President, and started under the title of the Zooisl, a journal devoted to mesmer ism aud phrenology.

NaenviLLE, Aug. 18. As might be supposed, the first reports concerning the terrible murders at Frackliutown which were telegraphed night before List, were in some respects Inaccurate, although In the main correct. It seems now tbat only some twenty five or thirty of tho mur derers came into tho town, while tbe ma'nbody aic reported at 200 to 403 strong, a'al is silj to have remained within supporting distance out side, Tbe name of the white man killed was S. A. Bicrfield. Ilu was a young man and kept a store In the town, and although an earnest Union mnn he was quite an inoffensive gentle man. Of all who knew him none say aught against him. He was quietly sleeping in his store ou Saturday night, bis clerk, who was colored, named Lawrence Cowman, sleeping also in the store. Kobinson's circus wai at Franklin that day. Tho evening performance bad been over some time. A number of people were still in town, when the masked horsemen came dashing in. They fired a number of shots indiscriminately, driving everybody ln-doors. They then went to Bicrneld's store and knocked at the back door. Be asked who was there. They replied "friends." lie told them to go to the front door, and went to it himself and opened it. They immediately rushed in, and secured Bowrxan while Bierfleld ran off. II 3 was fired at and wounded as he ran. By the blood they tracked him to au adjoining stable dragged him out, placed a rope round him, and put him on horseback. He, however, struggled to the ground, and piteously begged to be per mitted to see his mother before they killed him The reply was, " your mother. You shall die now." Several shots were then fired into his body which, as those who afterward saw it, say, was literally thot to pieces. Bowman was then brought out find shot, and the astasuns took their departure. Bowman was mortally wounded, but dragged himself tj a graveyard, aud died during the night. fcuch is the best account I have been able to obtain of these iriguttui murders. I cannot vouch for tho accuracy of each particular do tail, but as all the main points are confirmed by a number ot witnesses it is substantially correct, Gentlemen aiming lrom franklin last nibt say there i3 excitement there and fears ate entertained of a riot on a large scale. Reports have just reached here of a bloody tragedy Bear Waynesboro', Wayne county, In this State. On Saturday P. M. a large squad of negrooj were in a field drilling, and all armed withguus. They were approached by a number of citizens who expostulated with them, telling them they wUhed to be their friends, aud asking them to desist from their military preparations. The negroes then stacked their arms and the citizens retired; but after they had gone a little way they were ambushed by the Sheriff and a posse, and a large number killed and several wounded. The Sheriff's murderous onslaught is said to bave been wlthCiUht provocation. The negroes who were drilling took no part in the shootiurr. A large number ot citizens in Waynesboro and the surrounding country, on learuiBg of tie affair, at once went to tbe scene of conflict. Pickets were thrown out and every preparation made for a terrible fight. It is supposed that a bloody encounter must have occurred, but at this writing nothing later ha? come to hand. Tbe murder of Bierfleld at Franklin on Satur day light was not prompted by political con siderations. About a month since a little white girl named Ezell was outraged by a negro, who was shortly after taken fiotu the jail and bung. Two days alter wards the girl's brother was shot dead by a lot of negroes, aud it is now proved that Burfield instigated the latter murder. There is no doubt tbat Kzell's friend killed Bierfleld by way of retaliation. Tbe Corouer'a jury rendered a verdict that the killing of the negro on Saturday night was accidental. It is certain tbat bitter feuds and animosities exist all around, which require but little to fun them into a ll;i me of bloody strife. FROM JAMAICA.

The planters were vciy much alarmed, owing to the violent speeches made by Judge Maihedor in the parish of St. Thomas, the inhabitants of which proved tbcniuclves the moit dangerous during the pre vious rebellions. Tbe Judge declared tbat he did not come to administer any planters' law, but Eiig)ih Justice. He also exposed the sys tern of jurisprndenco in such a way that the negroes misinterpreted his remarks and com menced to insult the whites aud demand satis faction ot their employers for pat alleged grievances.

Important Latter from W. P. Hellea, a JOFDIV' m m lllnf AVsWB The New York Kvenina Post publishes the following letter which explains itself; In Patuiday's paper you cxpiess satisfaction that the slander has been denied which accused General Grant of venality or lavontism 10 grant ing to Alack Brother a permit to trade, during the war, through tbe lnlluence of his father. I cannot think that any accusation of thtt character against General Graut needs refuta tion. But as others difler from me. I will give my testimony for such use as you think proper to make of it. All trade In territory recovered to our posses sion by the Western at mles was conducted under my general supervision, subject to tbe regula tions ol the Secretary ot the Treasury, from tbe beginning to the end of the war. This made it necessary tbat I should be constantly conterrius with General Grant and other commanders of the Western armies, in regard to tneir views and wi.hes concerning trade in the rear, aud also with the assist ant neeuts of the Treasury Department who issued the permits. 1 am satisfied that no permit to trade could have been given by Geueral Graut which would not have come to my knowledge, and 1 feel certain that be never gave one to anybody at any lime or lor any purpose. He steadily and uniformly reiuseu to nave anjtning to ao witu matters of trade, except as to general regula tions and orders which the operations of the army made necessary. 1 could name numerous instances illustrating bis act on in this respect. So in after he entered Vicksburg he des'red to have tbe citizens supplied with necessaries without drawing from his commlssiry stores. This could only be done by traders, and the fewer the number the less trouble he would bave in watching them. He therefore limited the number to two. As this would create a monopoly vety profitable to those who should receive the permits, 1 Insisted tbat he should name the traders, but he absolutely refused to do it, although a near relative was presin to be one of them. At another time, wbile in Vicksbure-, he thoujrht a brother-ln-liw hd been guilty of Improper action connected with trade there, and immediately ordered him north of tbe Ohio. It seems to me that denial of such slanders implies tbat General Grant's cbaiacter needs deferise, and this 1 think I bave had the oppor tunity to know Is not true. A purer, jus'cr, and rpore iucorruptible man never was a-sailed by meatier or falser accusers. I wish, therefore, to add tbat I have written this not because I think it necessary to defend General Grant, but be cause I am requested to do It by other irieuds of nls. Very respecttuiiy, etc., Wh.

La Liberie says: "It is Impossible thst France can aiearru in tho presence ot an ag gressive rower like Prussia, and it is equally impossible tbat France can continue to endue tbe buideiis which a situatton of armed peace imposes on her. He imagine a letter lrom the Kmperor to his Minister of Foreign Affairs, re Quirin him to ask Pruss a to call a convention to difcuss the state of Europe, and In case of non-compliance, ne puts into the mouth of the Emperor "an address to the French nation," which would be equivalent to a declaration ot war acainst Prussia. "Suppos ing, be concludes, "that instead of these two documents being tbe production of a journalist, they were the bona fide work of the Sovereign hicnselt; if, Instead ol appearing in La Liberie, tbey appeared in the Alonifeur Vniwrael what would be thought ot them 1" Apprehension of War. The Berlin correspondent of tho Northeast Oozftle says: -"Count Bern1 toff, the Prussian Ambassador at London, passed a few days at Ems, and the views of the British Cabinet be came naturally tbe subject of conversation between him and the King of Prussia. The Count assured his Majesty of the friendly and siuceie feeling of England towards Prussia and Germany. Lord Stanley admitted the right of Germany to work out ber own destiny, without any foreign interference, and was of the same opinion as Prussia, that alt intervention in Ger man atlairs from abroad ought to be repelled. Count Bernstotf also expressed his beliet tbat England would employ ber lnlluence In prevcut intr any attitude ot hostility towards P.usslu frem any quarter. Ou all sides there are assur ances and declarations of peace; and yet, strange as It may seem, there Is nothing but apprehen sions ot war in all diplomatic and military cir cles. I bave had opportunity of being convinced ot ibis several times lately, aud the declarations of Marshal Kiel and of M. Kouher have pat tho climax to these apptehensions." BRAZIL. The Plplomatlo Dlfllcultlea. The New York Tribune'i correspondent, writing lrom Rio Janeiro, July 8, says: "1 learn tbat the Uuited Slates Minister has demanded, in connection with the refusal of General Castas to let our gunboat Wasp go up the Paraguay River for Mr. Washburn: First, an ample apoloiry; second, a condemnation of the conduct of Caxlas; third, tree license for the Wasp to go up at once. Failing to comply with any or either ot ihe above, I am led to believe that our Minister will at once demand his purports. The despatch from him was hiiudtd in yesterday to tbU Government, but their reply is deterred till alter tbe sailing of the Entrlish packet. Curiously enough, some people think tbat the action of our Minister will tend up exchange, because there will be a prospect of peace much soouer. Exchange with us is brm at 17 to 18, and I flimly credit the statement tbat tl.ls Government is guaranteeing tbe basks against any loss they may sustain by maintaining tbe rate. Our Minister baa just succeeded in bullying the Brazilian Government outot 14,000 sterl ng by threatening to stop relations with them if they did not pay at once lor a very old claim, and this, too, without ap parently any Instructions from home. Now ibey oiler Mr. Wash burn a passage down in an iron clad to the Wap, but tbat is not sulliolent the Wasp must go up to hiuu B MKK STATIONERY.

A rumor was circu lated here yostcrday, and published In several of the city papers, and telegraphed hence, that cable despatches had been received by one ot both ot the diplomatic representatives ot France and Prusila, stating that tbe relations between these two powers were nbout to be disturbed by war. The French Legation here regards this rumor as absurd, aud not worthy of tcrioas contradiction. Nor has the Prussian Minister received any information to that effect. There is nothing whatever in the relations of the countries, as known here, to justify such a con clusion, and there is authority for Baying tha no agents for tbe French Government, as pub lifhed, bave been ac'lvely engaged in different parts of this country In purchasing horses and forage for shipment to France. Personal. Geceral Rosecrans left Washington to-day for a brief sojourn at White Sulphur Springs, Va There were on the same train Generala Long street, Ewell, and Ilorton. A Cabinet Bleating-.
