JOMB'S PANTI8COPE?Apollo Rooms. Mew York, Wednesday, April 46, IBM. The New*. We ?were called upon yesterday to record one of the most sod disasters which has befallen oar Are del jartment within several years. At a large fire in Broadway about twenty souls were horribly m in gled, and others (the full number not yet known) coddeiily deprived of life. The cause of all this is the same old story of insecure buildings and trea i hire us walls. We publish a full account of this afTair in another part of to-day's paper. By the arrival of the Arabia at Halifax, we have one week's later intelligence from Europe. The most important feature in the news that she brings, is the announcement that on the 9th, the Protocol rede fining the integrity of the Ottoman empire was aigned at Vienna, by the Four Powers, including Prussia; but simultaneously with her adhesion to it, Prussia sought to introduce into her separate treaty with Austria, ? conditions and limitations .'"Inch would render the former a dead letter, and which Austria consequently refused to accept. It is stated that Hanover will take part witu Trance and England, and that all the minor German Powers will join Austria in forcing Prussia to de clare herself, should the subject come betcro the Federal Diet. Thus the force of events wi'l soon define the positions of the different Continental States. It is affirmed by a Belgian newspaper that a treaty of alliance, oflensive and defensive?entirely irrespective of the exi.-tisg war treaties?had just been signed between England and France. From the explanations of Lord Clarendon in the House of Lords, which we published on a former occasion, it is evident that theic is some mistake in this state ment. The treaty signed is merely the ratification of the understanding existing between the two Powers. Th- news of the declaration of war by France and Eng .m ? had reached Constantinople. The Turks wer i rown into a perfect frenzy of enthusiasm by It, a a then-exultation was no doubt increased by the ar: .val of Gen. Canrobei t with thirty thousand men. The allied fleet hail arrived at Varnu Bay and were about landing all the marines of the flfet to protect that place. Admiral Bruat was to replace Admiral Hnmelin, in order that Admiral Dundas might be enabled to assume the chief command, by virtue ?f the naval etiquette of seniority. Marshal Bt. Arnaud was, en revamhe, to lie given the chief command of the land forces. The accounts from the Baltic represent sir Charles Napier as cruising in search of a Russian squadron said to be off Farvo. Fiom the Danube we learn that on the .'10th of March an important sally had been made by the Turks from Kalefat, and that after a sanguinary combat of four bourn' duration, the Russians were rooted and pursued for a considerable distance. At Hin-ova the Turks also sncceeelcd in out-mcnoeu viing the Russians, and drove tliem with great loss across the river. ."10,000 Russ'ans had crossed at Gulab without opposition. Several English vessels had been tired into by the Russian batteries on the Danube. Despatches from Madrid state that Minister SoaU had succeeded in obtaining lull reparation for the ontrage on the Black W arrior; but we have no de tails with respect to the terms of the arrangement. "We hope to receive further particulars by the Arabia's mails. Previous to the departure of the Arabia a report had obtained currency in the English papers that the commander of ths Bussian expedition to Japan bad stolen a march on Commodore Perry, and had succeeded in throwing open the ports of that em pire, certain exclusive privileges being, of course, granted in favor of Russian commerce. This rumor assumes consistency from information which leached us yesteidny through San Francisco. It would ap pear from the Litter account, which was brought by a Dutch vessel, that on the 20th of August, several months after Commodore Perry had left the Japanese waters, the Russiairtieet, consisting of one frigate, one corvette, a screw steamship and a transport, arrived at Nangasaki, and that the Admiral and officers in command of it were received with marks of the highest distinction by the .Ja; ancse Governor. A letter from the Russian Chancellor, Count Noseclrode, was immediately forwarded to the Emperor through the latter; but at the departure of the vessel that brought this intelligence the Russian fleet was still lying at Kangasaki, awa;ting an an. swer. We next hear of the fleet at Ix>o-Choo, and of its depni turc again from that place on the 20th of February. Its destination was unknown, but was supposed to be Japan, as it was suspected that the Russian admiral had been lingering about in these waters until the period arrived for the receipt of the Emperor's answer to Commodore Perry. The Bri tish cruisers were attentively watching the move mcnts of the Russian vessels, nnd it was expected that as soon as the news of the declaration of war reached them they would immediately attack and capture them. C< irmodorc Perry arrived at Loo Choo from Hong Kong in January.* The officers and news me reported to be in good health. The news o( the death of the Emperor of Japan is con firmed. The London money market recovered from the panic into wlii h it was thrown by the declaration cf war, and conr< is closedateadyat x7'. American securities are without change. Cotton has ad van :ed 1 li t! to ; tli of a penny p< r ponnd. There lias also "be11: an advance of one sbil iug per barrel on flour and three pence upon wheat. Provision^ remain firm, but without any material variation in pri?. ?>. There was nothing done in our markets after the receipt of the European news. Breadstuff's were held flrn cr, but without -nlc. C> tton sold bcfoie the news to a fair extent, and closed tnm with an upward tendency in prices. The steamship Falcon, which left this port oa the l^tb Inat for Aspinwall, put into Norfolk on Sun day lost, some part of her m.i. hlocry having bee i broken. She wa > chartere 1 by government to con vey troops on ".heir way to Califtu?ia. All o:i board are reported safe. It was n t t< much to expe t after the melancholy cimmistanc^g connected with the leas of the San Francisco, that our government would have exercised greater caution or the future n the -election of vessels for the conveyance of our troops. It would appear, however, that the severe chboii taught by that disaster bas been lost up <n ihem. Of the force saved from the wre and u <le up to its full complement by the addition of fre^h troops, it wa , id?d .hat a portion *ho . d be 0?fafcb?d overland; a second deta^uueat was i actually sent out by the Dlinoia, the remainder, Lnclud ng the wives and families of the offlc-ra, were embarked on board the Fa con with the intention of forwarding th m a roes the s muB. It wUl te fe collected that at the moment even of embarkation, Captain Wyse threw up h:s command sooner than proceed in the latter vessel, as he considered her umeaworthy and likely to renew his previous bitter experience of the results of the forethought and vigilance exercised by our Naval Department. The presentiments of this officer have been unhappily fulfilled. If means cannot be a '.opted to obv ate all , this risk and danger in convey ng our troopB by sea, they most for the future b. s nt over laud. Files ?of the Antigua Weekly Reg iter, dated to the 4th of the p esent month, have reached us. They do not contain anything of pol.tical im portance. A public meeting was held in thexxrart house in the city of St. John, on the 20th of March, in order to devise the best moaus of carrying into effect an Industrial Exhibition in the island on 4he 1 1st of Augwst next. The Lord Bishop, President ' By am, the Chief Justice, upd other leading men, I were present, when an ttrecutive Committee was 1 appointed, and an extended plan of operations adopted. On Sunday, March 21, a fine occurred on Otto's estate, by which- about twenty five or thirty acves of cane were btvned. Wc have received our flics from Si. Domingo City loth* 25th ult. Nothing of interest or importance has transpired since the date of p-cvious advices. j flvicea from Havana to the 22d insthave reached nH by way of Charleston, hut contain nothing-of m K We received yesterday by the steamships Illinois ?f ml N< rthern Light, our papers from San Francis CO to the 1st instant, enabling us to give a complete summary of the news Announced yesterday morn ing by telegraph from New Orleans. Wc have only room to call the attention of the reader to the de tails of the intelligence in another part of the i < per, and particularly to that portion of it which re lutes to the arrest of the Mexican Co. su in San Francisco. It is both important and mtcie-ting. Intelligence from the South Pacific, Panama, and Jamaica is also given. The modified Gadsden treaty was yesterday rat i fied by the Senate, by a vote of thirty to thirteen. Wc have commented on this subject in another col umn. The United States Supreme Court lias reversed the decree of the Circuit Court of Ohio against giving the Methodist Episcopal Church South part of lite assets of the Cincinnati" Book Concern, and remanded the cause to the District Court for further action. . In the Senate yesterday the only matter ot gene ral importance that transpired wis the reception and reference of n nie.-sago from the President, cov ering suggestion!. as to the motbod of transacting the judicial business of the country, and recom mending that the Attorney General's office be erect ed into a department of the government, and all judicial power vested therein. The Senate after wards held an executive session and ratified the Gadsden treaty. A resolution was introduced in the House yester day, and referred to the Committee on Foreign Afiuirs, requesting information as to the steps taken by this government to secure the acknow edgment of the lights of neutrals by Great Britain and France; also whether the former has assumed to act lor Spain in the negotiations relative to the Black Warrior difficulty, and the extent of and pretext for such assumption. With regard to the first brunch of the inquiry, it is probable the steamer from Liverpool will bring definite information from Mr. Buchanan as to the convention with Great Bri tain, and we may likewise receive intelligence from Mr Mason, at Paris, of a similar arrangement with the Emperor of the French. The news from Madrid state? that the Spanish government has made ample reparation for the Black Warrior outrage. The H< use, in Committee of the Whole, nominally on the Deficiency bill, proceeded to discuss the Nebraska question, when Col. Benton delivered a very effec tive speech. A regular meeting of the Democratic Republican Society was held last evening, at which Professor Forest! presided. The most interesting feature of the proceedings was the reading of an original letter from General Lafayette, dated at Paris, April 8, 1830, in which the General expressed his opinions on tiic subject of free labor employment, and regret ted that European emigrants should cultivate by the hnr.ds of slaves. The Secretaries of the society rc jiorted the result of their conference with the dele gates of the German societies at Pythagoras Hall. We have a translation of the most important points of the paper, with a report of the business transact ed but cann t find space for cither this morning. John Wilson, indicted for the murder, of Henry Dcjkmeyer, was found guilty of manslaughter in the I second degree, yesterday, in the Court of Oyer and Terminer. The prisoner was sentenced -to seven yeais imprisonment in the State prison. The special election for Alderman in the Fifth ward, Brooklyn, y s'crday, resulted in the choice of John J. White, democrat, by eighty-two majority over both of his competitors. Ninety-nine of the bodies from the ship Powhatan h vc been recovered and buried, i he Underwriter arrived at this port yesterday. She is not seriously d maged in her hull. Santa Anna at Wftihlngton and Santa Anna nt csn Francisco?Very Cartons. Ey a mi st extraordinary coincidence, wj are ' enabled t > lay before our readers this morning, the news of the ratification, so call.d, of the Gndsi'.cn treaty at Washington, and the facts and documents concerning a filibustering scheme of Santa Anna to muster a body of troops in San Francisco. In other words, we are informed of the passage of a bill to furnish Santa Anno with the sinews of war, simulta neously with the information that he is collect ing an a my of foreign soldiers in one of our principal cities, in flagrant disregard of our ueutrality laws and the very friendly aud generous inclinations of our administration. I^ow, lied the original Gadsden treaty boon promptly ratified, the funds thus accruing to the Mexican Dictator would have enabled him to raise his three thousand foreign recruits in San Francisco, to be off with them, and without any trouble. This will probably account, in part, for the intense anxiety of the Mexican lobby agents at Washington to hurry through the treaty as fast as possible. Even as it is, if the modified treaty of the Senate is finally agreed wpi 11 between Ibe high contracting parties, a id the necessary appropriations are made by the lit use of Representatives, the expenses of these San Francisco levies may be settled out of the United States Treasury. If we are going to be magnanimous with Santa Anna?if we really desire to give him a fair chance to set up an imperial establishment like that of I uu.-tin Sculouquc?why should we not over look this Son Francisco plot, and pay the ex pcnrcs with a good grace. Anything rather than risk a war between our puny aJministra tion and the terrible and ferocious Santa Anna. The particulars of the San Francisco affair will be found undtr the head of the California news : the substance of the new treaty, among our de-patches fiom Washington Tlicy come . ppropriatfdy together. Had tlie news from San Francisco arrived a day earlier, perhap Santa Anna might have obtained another hun dred thousand or so. a< indemnity for his coun ter filibu. tering efforts to defeat Col. Walker. But we presume that lie will bo satisfied with the reduced sum of ten millions for the re dured margin of territory we shall acquire, the Tihuantipcc right of way, and our .ckusc trwa the herder Indians. A half a loa" is better than no bread, eepe; lly when the man is very hungry. Then th idea of a bril liant empire, i s our next door neighbor, was too tempting to le resisted. We pr.sume that the new batch of Galphin and Gardner claims con-* templated n the original Gadsden treaty, entirely omitted in the irotocol of the Senate, for we hear nothing about tLem. Tuls Is. treat ing very cav.lierly the \ articular ft: .ends of Santa Ann s in th original barg ing but it is altogether prol.able that he will tonsent to sacrifice th m on reflection ; or he miy divide a few bundre i thousands of his own money among them in co. Bidcration of the.r sei vices, perhaps. Let them see to it, before the caBh is all gone for old muskets and artillery. Tbe Senate have relieve 1 the country of a lead of anxiety md alarm. They Lave given us, in their new treaty, an assurance of peace with Santa Anna, which, in these times of war, "big with the fate of nations and of Rome," is a very great thing. Let us be thankful. Let us admire the wis !om and high reaching dignity, discretion and gene rosity of the Senate, in thus securing peace 1 with Mexico, a release from the borlcr In dians. the right of way by t e Teliuantepec route, and the privilege of an impire next door; and all for the sum of ten millions of dollars! We are now in a beautiful position. Spain is disposed to accommo date us to almost anything except Cuba, and Santa Anna is pacified; and all for ten millions of dollars. Thus we are free to take a hand in the European war, whenever it may be deemed expedient. One thing only remains now to be dene by the Senate to place our Mexican rela tions upon the most satisfactory basis. It is a vote of thanks to Santa Anna for declining to accept American citizens in his enlistments at San Francisco. Such an act of international comity ought not to pass without some com mendation. TDK Mator and his Duties?Thk Streets.? The Mayor is the chief magistrate of the city. Formerly he was our chief executive officer, and held the appointment and control of the heads of the various departments in his hands. During the last half dozen years, hpwevcr, the levelling ideas of the grog-shop politicians have gained such ascendency that the " down trodden people " l ave been invested with the election of the heads of departments, under the management of the grog-shop conspirators. The consequence is that most of the poweis and much of the efficiency of the Mayor, and of the corporate authorities, have been frittered away, till we arc but one remove from a state of anarchy. There is still one prerogative remaining to the Mayor, of very considerable practical utility. He is the head of the police depart ment, the so-called chief of that service being himee f subject to the instructions of the Mayor. The duties of his Honor, in this view, are of the highest importance and responsibility, in view of the approaching hot weather. 1 he first branch of the street cleaning?that is, the re moval of such heaps of rubbish, dirt and gar bage as may obstruct or disfigure the streets? it is the duty of the polioe, under the supervision of (he Mayor, to look after. Where tLc policemen neglect .their duties in this respect, and where the Chief of Police neglects his duty of a rigid supervision, it be comes the duty of the Mayor to exercise his authority as the head of the department. Where the Mayor is efficient, his subordinates will doubtless discharge their trust faithfully ; hut where the laziness of the police is shared in l>y the laziness of their captain, and a lazy chief and a lazy mayor, dirt, rubbish and gar bage will continue to accumulate iu the infect ed districts, till disease and pestileuce aro pro duced, or until the citizens interested take the work into their own hands. We have had a new man appointed to super intend the sweeping of the streets, and Captain Glasier has given us to understand that the work sh 11 be done; but unless the piles of rub bish and offal are promptly removed through the vigilance of the police, wrier the constant vigilance of the Mayor, the mere sweeping of the streets will be but half the execution of the job of cleaning them. Our Mayor must begin to stir himself. His daily official rou tine, according to our information, makes his | office a perfect sinecure. He comes down to it at about eleven o'clock in the morning, and re mains there till about two o'clock, the most of this interval being occupied in conversations with genteel loafers or shipcarpenters, and others in their line of private business. This will never do; for, if under such a state of things nuisances of all sorts continue to exist and accumulate in the streets, there will be but one alterLntive left for the adoption of ?or lel low-eitizens. We must have another mass meet ing. and the appointment of a coinmittrt ol vigilance of one or two active men for each ward, under the general control of some com petent person, Genin. for example, as provisional mayor. In view of this extra-municipal ar rangement. we call upon Genin and other effi cient men to hold themselves in readiness for the public service. Last summer, with the city overflowing with filth, we escaped the cholera and the yellow fever through the mercy of Pro vidence. During the coming summer let tie he entitled to exemption from our attention to a constant cleaning and purification of the streets. If the Mayor, the police and the Street Depart ment fail, wc must fall back upon a provisional government. That's all. The Fine Art*. NATIONAL ACADEMY OK PKSTO.V. The twenty ninth nnnunl exhibition of tho Nation*! Academy of I'oaipfn, which hoi bo 'n open to the public during tho last four necks, st No. Ct<3 Broadway, was closed last evening. The exhibition has been n highly successful one, and the marked attention that has teen paid to it, both by at tists and amateurs, must tend to improve the condi tion of the f.ne art* in the United States. Asa whole, thc?exhlbition was creditable to the academy, and the Individual exhibitors can be charged with only one sin? a luck of oiiginslity in conception and execution. The necessity of closing the exhibition at so early a date was regretted, both by the academicians and their friends. It-was Imperative, however, on account of the fact that the buildings of the academy were sold, and that removal previous to the 1st of May was a condi tiou of the sale. IVc trust soon to see the establishment of a free gallc ry of art in the city of New York. Such a gallery, pro perl ' managed, would not fail in its endeavors to obtain the support of aitists, amateurs, the patblle journals, and the people generally.

TAe people of the United State* have now among tbem t'ie violinist upon whose shoulders the mantle of Paga nlnl must fall. This artist la a boy of fourteen?Paul Julien. Bo made his first appearance in public at Mar seilles, in 1847, and at that period be displayed such re markable talent that he was encouraged to study, and on the 4th of July, 1862, he landed in the United States. Bis great talent first attracted the attention and ex cited the admiration of Madame Sontag. He played in the concerts which she gave here, and excited the great est enthusiasm among professionals and amateurs. In Boston, Philadelphia, and other cities, the furore he cre ated was even greater than in the metropolis. We have before alluded to his triumphs in Bavana, a city where music is the great study of the inhabitants, and where none but the greatest artists can move the audience to anything like enthusiasm. Be has now returned to New York, and has given throe concerts, being his first essay for his own profit. It is fair to say that the public?and the musical public particularly?nas responded to this call. The saloon of Nlblo'a theatre lias been crowded on the occasion of each concert; but were the people of New York fully aware of the great genius of Julien, a much larger hall would have been required; and even one of five times greater capacity might not have sufficed. Paul Julien is a wonder?a phenomenon?a mystery. He steals into the hearts of his auditors; he lea'la them cap tives by his delicious tones; he satisfies the sternest cri tic by his accuracy and precision; he charms the untu tored by his great natural power and his entire freedom from the conceit and puppyisms which frequently dis gust the public with artists otherwise meritorious. His last great feat?the performance of Maysedcr's variations upon one string?lms been entirely successful, and it Is wonderful to s?e this child attack and overcome difficul ties against which older artists have struggled lor years ?without success. Criticism by comparison is not precise ly correct, hut the general reader takes nn idea from it with more celerity than by any other means. Paul Ju den, then, is gieater y.un Ole Bull, though that's not much; Paul Julien is greater than Sivori, and tlwt is a great deal to say; Paul Julien is greater than Vienx temps?and the two artists last named arc the leading vio linists in Kurope. Whea Paul Julien returns they must look to their laurels. Ole Bull was and is a failure, artistically speaking. Ho succeeded at first in America, because he was the first noted artist in his line. Two rsally clever artists?Sivori and Vicux.emps?followed him; but they were not fol lowed with remunerative audiences. Since their failure no one dared to risk a concert upon two or three violin solos, until this child-artist, Julien, came to New York and threw down his gauntlet. Be has a brilliant career before him, and it will be the more brilliant because he has the grace of modeaty. whicli is so great an ornament to true merit. He is also resolved to win the highest wreath of fame. He has improved greatly during the two years he has resided here, and he appears to be umnoted by the outhu-iusra which he creates. 'He stands before the a whence gracefully and unaffectedly? with the same ease and grace he runs through the most difficult music, paying the strictest attention to all the minute divisions and articulations?drawing from the instrument such tones as we never heard from any other artist?and almost before we can say behold ! the pleas ing dream has vanished. There is no humbug, no pup pyism, no conceit, no charlatanry, about Paul Julien. By his pleasant air and piquant style, he captivates every body. His after life will redeem the promise of his youth, and lie wilt riso to the head of those artists whose names ore registered in the hearts of the people. More Bodies Washed Ashore from the Wreck of the Powhatan. A gentleman arrived yesterday from Absccom informs us that a number of bodies, in addition to those already mentioned, have boen washed ashore at different points along the beach, and all had received a proper burial from the inhabitants of the various places nearest to which they were found. The following is the number of bodies which have been buried at the places desig nated :? Smithville 60 Absecom 9 Mannliawkin 26 Lcedsvillc 12 Two bodies were buried on the beach near Smithvilie, they being in such an advanced state of decomposition as to render it imj>oesible to remove them to the maic land. A sailor, apparently about forty-five years of age. was picked up on the beach, and buried at Smithville. Be is described as being dressed in oilcloth coat and pants, and baring both arms marked with India ink, on one of which was a cross and some letters, denoting that he was a Ca. tbolic, and on the other was an anchor. In his pockets was found a pocket book, in which was a note draws by William Myers, and dated at New York in Desember. 1 l.e body of a man was picked up and buried at Leeds viile, having M. F. F. marked on his shirt, and on his right arm was printed M. F. F., 1825, and on his hand was nn anchor. Iho bodies of four men were buried at Leedsville. whose clothing was marked respectively, l,F. W.," "I. S. I!.," '?R. N.," and "L. F." The bodies of three woman were aho buried, whose clothing was marked ,lR. S.," "C. I.," and -T. W." At Absecont three more bodies were bu ried, who bad marked upon their clothing "I. F. C.," "C. R.," and "S. Y., No. 12." Fifty dollars reward lias been offered for the recovery of the body of Ambrose K. Rogers, first mate of the ship, who is described as being thirty years old, five feet eight or nine inches high, and with dark straight hair. He has marked upon owe of his arms on anchor and three stars. There wese on board the Powhatan three hundred and eleven passengers, and twenty nine of the crew?making in all three hundred and forty souls, not one of whom escaped the fatal wreck. Not quite half the number have as yet been found. Cl'B SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE. Manahawkix. Ocra.v Coc.vtv, I NRw Jersey, April 23, lfc-54. J I write to you tlie particulars of everything relative to the late foarful disasters, which occurred here since I saw you last in New York. I hive liad an interview with Captain Jennings, the wreckmaster, and he informs me that the body of a lady | has been found on the point of the beach at little Efcg I llarbor. This is the third body which has been taken up ; since your first list was published. It was so far decom posed and so badly eaten, that, in my opinion, a recogni | tion would be impossible. The three bodies were interred at Tuckerton. - | The man who came on shore from the schooner Man , hattnn, is now well enough to start for home to morrow | morning. I Mr. Jennings has taken all the baggage of the ship. [ wtth the other articles which came on shore, to the Boarding House. He says that there is nothing of any consequence in it now, nor are there any articles of value with the exception of five or six silver watches which he j found in the chests. | Relatives of Captuin Meyers came on from Baltimore ami examined them, and took his desk and whatever they could identify, friends of the mate were also here and exhumed all the male bodies, but failed to recognise hiai. They Uok his trunk on to New York. Captain Jennings slate? that about two hundred dollars have been found up to this time. of the wrecks wa? aoW yesterday to the best ad vantage. J- B. S.

PROPERTY, j SIXTEEN FIREM:N KILLED AND WOUNDED. ? Aw., &c., &c. Last evening, about eight o'clock, the extensive tailor- j ing establishment of W. T. Jennings, So. '231 Broadway, 1 war discovered to bo on tiro. The City Hall bell prompt- | ly Rounded the alarm, but before it ha I Rtruck tho num- | ber of the district twice, the entire building was in one | niaesof flames, illuminating the lower part of the city, and . reflecting beautUully upon the marble blocks of the City , tip 11 xhe firemen were, as Hiual, quickly in attendance, : m? several streams of water were played upon the flames. In the front there were three streams and others in the j rear, from the windows of the old American Hotel and the roof of the building No. 233 Broadway. All the e. forts of the firemen were in vain, as the fire burned fiercely, mocking all their attempts to extinguish it. The firemen, thinking that the building No. 2$3 Broad way was in imminent danger, got out of the rear of tho burning building, from that portion occupied by Mr. Jennings as a salesroom. At about 9 o'clock, when it was thought tho fire had dene its wor?t, with a dreadful crash the rear wall fell, burying beneath it a large number of the gallant spirits who had been so nobly struggling against furious flames. The falling of tbis wall was caused by the weight of a I beat v safe iu one of the tipper stories, wiiieh shook, in its crash, the fouufiation of the entire building. Those who were crushed were at the base of the wall, and both those on the iuside and outside of the building ulike sbaied the disaster, the wall falling both ways. Thotc on the ground, firemen, police and citizens, im mediately stretched every nerve in the rescue of these unfortunate men. Up to 12 o'clock the following hud been taken from tl.c ruins, arid carried to the City Hospi tal? THE KILLED AND WOUNDED. Vnttbew Ki'.iigan, Kngiue Co. No. 'Al?slightly burnel.

His sit uation for a while wns most perilous. The safe lay abovff him, and was so delicately poised, that it was feared it would fall over and crush Gallagher as he lay fastened by his arm. A purchase, after much difficulty, was rigged, the safe raised, and the man safely released. J. A. Keyser. of Hostf Company No. 8?dead when ta len from the ruins. Charles I ally, Engine No. 20?slightly injured about the face and bauds. James McNulty. of Engine No. 20?was still alive when taken f:otn the ruins, but died in a few miuutes at the engine house, where he was taken by his friends. John Atkinson, of Hose Co. No. 49?one leg broken. His life was saved by his fire cap. A large beam fell di rectly acioss his bead, but his stiff cap resisted the pies sure, and when released he was carried to his home. Donnelly, Engine No. 42?in the ruins at t o'clock last night, hut alive, and conversed with those about him. He said he was not much hurt. Peter Curran, Engine No. 40?not badly hurt. Was taken home. ...... . ? Timothy Shauh-y, Engine No. 15?slightly hurt. Was taken h< me. At the time of going to press the work of rescuing the crushed was continued with unabated energy. It is known that several more ore buried, and no doubt will be found dead, from the constant pressure upon them, and suffocation. LOSS BY FIBE AND WATEH. The loss by this fire is very great, there being a large stock of goods in the building where the fire originated, and several stores, well filled with goods, were flooded. "We think the enure loss cannot fall short of seventy thousand dollars, as will be seen from the following table Loss. W. T. Jennings' store and stock entirely con sumed ?. Hut field, tailor, damaged by water 5,'MO Tbos. Eewell, of Barclay street, dealer in cmbroid ei ies, damage by water 6,000 Samuel Hunt li Co., manufacturer of playing cards, damaged by water 8,000 Cochrane & Mickey, importers and jobbers of straw goods, damaged by water 5,000 Webber & Peaty, wholesale gentlemen's furnish ing establishment, damaged by water 3,000 Damage to the building known as the American Hotel, occupied principally by lawyers and for warding agents 10,000 Total loss $76,000 Owing to the confusion prevailing at the time, wc were unable to learn anything about the amount each party were insured for : but we suppose the insurance effected wiU fully cover the entire loss. A portion of Mr. Jen nings' goods were saved in a damaged condition by the insurance watchers. Such a henrt rr tiding disaFter as this has not occurred for years. Wc have learned since visiting the above that the walls fell twice. The rear wall fell first, burying several, and while releasing those the side wall fell, bury tDgtke rescuers. Great complaint is made in regard to the unsubstan tially of the building. It was found to be a mere shell, built upon the "cheap principle,''and to this is owing the d saster which we now record. To say that the firemen acted bravely conveys but a faint conception of their true heroism upon this occa sion. To the thousands who had congregated in the Paik were revea'ed many of these daring men, actually enveloped with fiaine and smoke. Captain Brcnnan, we learn, I ad a very narrow escape, having left the rear of the fatal building for a length of hose but a few seconds before the crash was heard and death seized his com panions. lh ? origin of the fire we could not learn. We cannot close this report without recommending tho authorities of the city hospital t-o place at their outward gates in future, those who are acquainted at least with some of the rules of common decency. To deny the press, at any time, the ordinary facilities for obtaining inform ation in regard to an affair so serious as this, is in itself considerable. But when such denial is accompanied with a boorish demeanor and a total disregard of ordi nary civility, it then lecomee a matter deserving of ac tion oeyond a reprimand.

I.?TROTTING. i A trotting race for a purse and stake of $260, nj heats, best three in five, to wagons, came off yester. afternoon, between r. m. Lady Franklin and br. g. Str gcr, which was won easily by the mare in three strai; beats. A third horse was entered, but did not com< the post. Tlie race afforded very little amusement, a was apparent to all that the mare was far too fast for , gelding. A hundred to ten was the current rates of I ting. Still, Hiram Woodruff managed to make the c test appear a very clo.,e one to the uninitiated in s> matters, hy keeping his mare side and side with the ot nag all the way, and winning caeli heat hy about ha leDgth. Time, however, tells the story. The tirst b was performed in 2:48the second In 2:51 >?. and third in 2'49}j. The track was in capital condition,; the race wus witnessed l>y a goodly number of spcctat. The following is a SUMMARY. Tuesday. April 25.?Purse and stake, $250, m.le he. best three in five, to wagons. , ' H. Woodruff entered r. m. lady Franklin 1 I A. Conklin entered br. gStranger 2 - lime, 2:48?a? 2.51 X?2:49%? Having but little to say about the race, let us proc with a few remarks about those whaat present patrol the trotting course. The character of the assembly for the past few years has been rather deprecult owing to the general absence of men of standing in immunity. The came is obvious enough. From w i f n proper organization, the trotting courses had fa , under the control of men who made use of thein to s irve their own private and pecuniary ends. From unfair practices of these men, maay gentlemen wcrv terrcd from attending the cent ae through fc.t.- of be fleeced, and many owners of fast horses would not al them to appear on tiic tnrf. One reason for this ??<, I bubly, the want of a law legalizing trotting, the hid having expired some years ago, and the proprietors be # unable to enforce proper regulations. But with the | sage of the new law, a hotter state of things will prev and with the contemplated formation of a proper cl we may expect shortly to bi o suitable regulations forced, such as will ensure a due regard to the rights all concerned. The arrangements are now making. The plnnlt roads, not only leading to the track, but. all directions, are lu a very bad condition, and have come an Intolerable nuhanee. In fact, one on V island, we understand, is about being presented by i Grand Jury as snch. It Is aSout time they w< abandoned,, as ex| erience shows they aro utterly wor less, and a short time is sufficient to destroy the. The supposed economy of these roads la a mere flilth as, In the end, If kept in repair, they are more expens than any other road we know of. The planks sc rot, and the roads become extremely dangerous, perili life and limb at every step. We hope to sec their e< structlon prohibited in future by legislative enaetnw' A good turnpike is far preferable and much safer. T f price of hemlock has been very much enhanced in ce sequence of the vast amount used in the construction these roads, anil it ii difficult to be procured except at extravagant price. The /urore for plank roads originat with the speculator* in hemlock lands and owners saw mills, who alone havo been benefitted by the expo ment, at the expense of farmers and other real esta owners in the country, who have been compelled to fot go building and fencing in many instances on account the enormous price of lumber, consequent on the ii mense quantity of timber used in every part of the con try in the construction of plank roads.
