The dals from which tho speaking was dune was raised
at the foot of Logan's) slaiuc of O'Connell, and Mr.
Murley during tho ceremony sat beneath the statuo
of Thomas Drummond, tba benevolent Irish S-cretary
of fifty years ago. The Mayor** and onicer- of ali
the corporations of Ireland, BSVS two, wer.- teated
round thr? hall and made a most picturesque effect with
their civic robes of fur and Bennet, their massive chains
of offlce-to which each Mayor addi a heavy link

Forty-second st., on Sunduy evening wero of In?

physicians mid nurses managed to quiet the rest,
as it. was believed from the outset that the tir<
would not prove dangerous Them had been much
uneasiness among the nurses m the hospital since
Sunday night, und the parents ol a few
of the children under treatment had insisted npon
removing them to their homes. The lire yester?
day afternoon increased th*.- alarm considerably
for a tow hoiiis.
Fire Marshal Sheldon was in the hospital con?
ducting an examination <d witnesses of the Sunday

On Tuesday * vening Dr. dibiis found a ho*, ol

possii.ility ..I matches dropping into a resistor and
setting lire to the hospital, while the physicians

at the time. On Wedncedjiy Dr. Gibba took Mr.
Sheldon to his room to ghow him where i be matches

another i..,x of matches on the register. Mr.
Shelden talked willi May nnd suspected that she

T)r. Gibney, thc chief surgeon at the hospital,
said: "The err! probably -tufTers from pyromania,

now- that the authur of the mischief hus been

Some of thc other physicians In the hospital unir}
they trew astounded at the detection of May
Wilson's depravity. They knew* nothing of the
girl's histor*, l...fo|e sh,, came to the hospital, with
her rieck twisted s,, thal her face was over one
shoulder. She was a trell-mannered child, and
hud smh a sweet expression in lier face that she
attracted svmpthy from all the other inmates
she bore a painful operation with patience, and
lately ber sweetness of temper hud not diminished.
When the fin- was discovered in the bath-room bb
Sunday night, it wns May Wilson who called at?
tention i" the other lire in the doctor's room. She
appeared to be strangely cool al the time, but
her bearing did not excite suspicion, r. ans con
sid. i, d only as another proof of ber devotion to
the interests ol her companions in the hospital.
Oas of thc servants said yesterday that she no?
ticed M.ii Wilson hovering aboul the dining-room
.ti Wednesday evening, after Fire Marshal Sheldon
had been talking to her. Probably the inri was
thinking thi n ..( making another attempt fo burn
np the building. May wns In a irrenfly excited
condition last, .vening, and reporters wire not
permitted to talk with nc. Her parents ar-' said
to be respectable people and aide to provide for
her comfort.

Friday by Detective Sergeant Sheldon, of Inspector
Byrnes'* iliiit-mi, escape.', from custody to-day. Hinee ho
wos committed to Jail on Monday by Judge Baker to
await extradition papers from New York, Carpenter baa
been permitted by the Sheriff to occupy bis rooms, being
guarded by two special otllcers. He employed bis time
in amusing lils guards and sending telegrams. Last
night his nttorney, ff. W. I'ope, spent several hours in
consultation with Mat, leaving him ut ll o'clock.
Wben the gtianls chango*! watches at midnight lt was
supposed that bo was soundly sleeping tu bed. but when
tbe guard wno had the last watch went to see If his pris?
oner was all right he discovered that what he supposed
to be tlie steeping form of the forger was an arrange?
ment of the pillows resembling a man's form. Ho took
with him two heavily pucked valises aad lils overcoat.
Sherill Holland sent thirty or forty dispatches to points
In this county, but up to this willing has received no
word of Carpenter.
When first arrested Carpenter said he was willing to
return to New-York, but deprecated tbe Idea of going as
a prisoner. Detective Sheldon deoltasd to take him any
atlier way than as a prisoner, preferring to await the
arrival of the extradition paper- in order to obviate any
triiubie. Carpenter left ? letter tn lila attorney saying
tl,*! he timi made up his mimi lo do a rash act. but ia his
ludguienl lt was a risk worth the taking lie said that
he was determined, if possible, tu return to New-York
without going aa a prisoner, ami that he would com?
