WHOLE NO. 6869. SUNDAY MORNIN??i JUNE 17, 1855. PRICE TWO CENTS. DREADFUL CALAMITY IM MAIDEN LANE. Sxpiosion of Fireworks. ? WR BURST TO OEATB. Between 7 tad 8 o'elook yesterday morning the store of Duakia b Behbine, No 10 lane, importers of toye tad (merb, toek Are Amourst a quantity of rock et* and wheel*, the explosion oica*iooed waa tremen dous for a short period. Mr. PeDip a. Jeannoret, of the firm of HaltTia fc Co., wateh importers who oceup ed a room on lb* aacoad floor of sail premises, periabed ia the flames. His body wan aooe a'ter extricated from ike buildieg in a terribly diafigured condition from the burn ing, The flraaaen were very prompt, and aucoeedtd ia extingniahing the fire before it extended beyond the building in which it originated. The oireamstasMe* under which the unfortunate gen tleman loot hie life are aa follows:?The Arm of which be belonged occupied a second story room fronting on Maiden lane, directly oyer tbe fii eeofka. All the other portion of the bail ding waa occupied by Oonkin b Bobbin*. The porter, Patrick Ha 11away, of Duetto & Bobbins, bad just opened tbe store, and Mr. Jeannoret, together with their watchmaker, had gone up eta re to their business. The porter any* he locked the street door for the purpose of going te the third floor, when, as ne ascended the first flight ef stairs, he heard the aiacnaige of firework*. He immediately came down to tbe store and then he dle 'ooversd tens wheels and rockets ou die, next the ceiling. He hurried to the front door, weut out to the aide walk, -and gare an alarm of fixe. By this time the ex plosion ef Arwworke became tremendous, the rockets shooting out from the store in all direction*, and explosions followed in quick succession. The watch maker an the second floor excla.med to Mr. Jeanne ret, who waa at that time engaged at the iron safe, " Philip I Phi Bp! there is fire," and ran to the head of the stairs. At that instant, all that he now recollejts is that an explaeion deprived him of all knowledge until he found himself at the foot of the stairs, near the aide walk; he has ant received any n-rious injury. It was the watchmaker who gave the inform tlon of Mr. Jeanoeret being left up stairs, bnt the fire and explosion of fireworks prevented any one from go ng up to his rescue. After the partial extinguishment of tbe fire the deceased was fbtud on the floor, by tha iron safe, just where the watchaaakn last saw him; his coat and portions of his -other apparel wee burnt off, and his face, hands, aims and ether portions of hie person was dreadfully disfi gured by burning. The body was taken charge of by Captain Dewling, of the Sixth wari, who ordsred it to be ?conrejred te bU station house, where Coroner Hilton teid the inquest. The deceased was twenty one jeare of aje, and a Swiss by birth. He hoarded at the Pressott Honae; waa aot married. His mother and slater reside at White Plains, AYest theater county, to which p'aje, we understand, the .body will be conveyed for interment. At present nothing positive can be elicited in reference to the origin of the Are, any further than the hurried statement mide ;by the porter, aa already giveu.

Coroner Hilton hold an inquest yesterday aftsr soon upon the body of Philip H J'anneret, the unfortu nate Ban killed at the Are at Ho. 10 Balden lane, at t'ae Birth ward station house. An examination of the body was made, and a verdict of "death caused by suffoca tion, from the explosion of fireworks in the store No. 10 Maiden laao, rendered" Olof Luudgrew, Patrick IIillo way and John 0. Bobbins were examined, bat no Infor mation was obtained as to tbo origin of the lire. The following is the testimony taken Patrick Hollo tray being ? worn, said?I reside at 183 Wert Thirty-sixth street; I am tn the employ of Dnnoan k "Robbie" No. 10 Maiden lane; they deal in toys, fancy d ire works; they occupy the store on the first ipanel it a few minutes before 7 o'clock this A swept tt ant; about 7 '? o'clock I was about go alie, when I heard a hissing noise; when I heard irned round, and saw a firework wheel on the iclf in the southeast corner of the store on fire; hat Is called a colored wheel; I ran to the tore door; I had left it locked, and had to it to get out: while I was in the act of unlock door the wheel explored, throwing fire to the > side of the etore, igniting a rocket, which ex and set off the other firewoiki; the body of the is in the store were eituated about the middle of ' all exploded, busting the front window out; I this time got into tho street, and was halloing ' there wee no person about the store but myself; ?ere other fireworks belonging to the firm in the tory back room; the explosion set tho whole lowsr the house on fire; the front room in tho eocond ras accepted by Sattsman & Co., watoh importers: ot know at the time whether any one was in that * not; the deceased.

At the cosclaaion of reading the evidence to the jar;, the Coroner remarked that heretofore, in suih cases, he bed been in the habit of aliening tee'leaooy in referenc ? to the origin of tbe Ore; bat new that portion of the in qulry fell Into tbe bancs of another officer, Mr. Baker the Fire Mersbal who will go ful'y into the ease. A' present my dot; is merely to ascertain the cause or death; and tbe evidence I bare just read to yon, gentle men, is snfficieot for that purpose. Tbe jury then found a verdict as above. The Fire Marshal, who wae present during the holding of tbe isqvest, informed the Coroner that he wonld pro ceed with the Investigation on Monday. Benevolent inatitndone. thi noKia's toibon AHAOoiariOK. This excellent instim-ion has, we p*reeive from the lest annual report, just published, reached the tenth jesr ef its existence, end is constantly extending the field af its operations, it was formarly connected with the "Prison Association," bnt after a long experience ef joint actioa, It was believed by all parties that the ladies, by whom it was prtnoipalty managed, could work more effectively in an Intepantent organisation. A separation therafore took place, with the most frisnlly understanding?the men for the relief and advaaeamen! of the male prisoaere; the women fer the redemption of their own sex. Tne " Home" is a distinctive feature of tbe ((Women's Prison Association." It Is essential that the female convict, when her term of imprisonment is ended, shonid have an asylum?a retreat where she mty be sheltered from temptation, where her feeble purposes may be strengthens J, her new habits conlrmed, and where, in the ward anl watch of Christian womtn, her reform and instruction may proceed. No pains are spared to make this asylum for adult chil dren worthy of tbe sacred nams of " horns." Uniform disiipline is attempted, diligence and cleanliness are exacted; regular instruction in the rudiments of education is given, and, as far as possible with subjects who, to the weakness of children add the depravity that comes fro a life long neglect, exposors end evil communication, mutual kindness and harmony ere maintained. The inmates remain at the Horns not less than three months, end no longer than is deemed eeaentlal for their best good Places are found for thosa who are eligible for sitnationa, and the Incurable or ir reclaimable are dismissed, or returned to the State in stitutions. From this hr ef sta'emsnt of the objects gnd gimp of the Home, some idea may be formed of the benefits wilt oh it confers upon that particular class who are considered beyond the symoethiea of the community. Iniependent ot this, the good whi -h it has already done, and the number of unfortunate outcasts who would have been lost but lor its instrumental ty, ought to be sufficiest to commend It to the sapp <rt of a benevolent and dis criminating pibllc. The Home is at No. 191 Tenth avenue, and it capable of accommodating between forty and Arty inmst*s As the deminds upon its bens volenes ere cons tan tlv increasing, the managers propose erecting a new building, towards which they have al ready collected a fond of 16,000. This snm, however, is insnfflcient to warrant tbem in the commencement of the proposed edifice ana they rely, therefose^n the aid which tbey expect to receive from the well known liberality of our oitlsens In enterprises of this character. The Home is a thoroughly practical institution, and is entirely free from that spirit of ostentatious phllin thropby which characterizes some of our public chari ties. Considering the limited means at its disposal, it does is much, if not more, than any other establishment for the benefit o' those who seek its assistance, tnd who but lor it gould be irretrievably lost. It takes the un fortunate woman as she leaves the prism, clothes end hoards her for several months, and if at tbe end of the probationary period prescribed she Is found to be deserving and really ainceis in her change of life, she is provided with a situation, and presented with an opportunity of _,re estab l'shing her character. It is needless to s.ate that there are many sucli unfortunate women. And who does not feel that they are entt'led to the consideration, if not the sympathy, of the benevolent? It Is only neces sary to state a few facte to show toe claims which the Home has upon the community. Tbe total receipts during the past year amounted to 93,468 33, and ex penses to 93,211 80, showing a balance of 9240 97. With this over 194 women were provided for at ths Home, from January, 1863, to January, 1864. Of these, 69 were tent to situations, 6 returned to their friends, 10 allowed ts find place a for themselves, 1 went to house keeping, 1 was sent to Fmigration Society, 2 to the - " - .1--I 11 1. II. U.,,1. we suppose, incorrigiole? leaving 30 remaining at the end of the year. In regard to the enceess which has already attended the praiseworthy exertions of the ladies who have ths management of the Home, the report spsaks as follows : ?"Our sya is upon those who lesve us. We have re cords through years, of their conduct. Inmates of ths ysars 1860, '61, 62, 63 and 64. have remained in respect able places, some in factories and some at domestic ser vice, and hkve laid up considerable sums from their wa ges? one 9200, another 9100?some 986, 970, 930, 926, and scores of smaller snms; others are constantly remitt ing ot the avails of their honest industry relief to their half-famished friends in tbs Old World. Young gtrls have remained three and four years In conntry nouses, re ceiving school and domestic instruction, and giving sat Isfactlon to their employers. Several of our people an married respectably and living deeently In the ooaatry. Of one we recently heard that she has become a 'mem ber of a church, a faltbfnl teacher m a Sunday school, tnd Is accounted a very worthy woman.' And who were these people? For the most part those who from ignorance and loneliness, neglect, and temptation in this our dear eountTy, bat to tbem a strange land, had fallen into the abyss of degradation." From tbe school report it appears that 45 were taurht to read; 60 to write in books; 39 to writs on slates; 24 to rpell; 4 tbs alphabet; and 97 the simple rudimentj of , arithmetic. Some of tbe ladles composing the Executive Committee visit the Tombs occasionally, and ths various dspart ments'under municipal government on Blackwell's 1 Island. Besides this, there is a visiter of the prisons, whose duty it is to visit their female departments perio dically, to report thosa who are proper subjects for the institution, and to give counsel and aid where it 1s asked and can be given. The report speaks in high terms of the faithful servi ce* of Miss Fs.ter, the Matron of the Female Depart ment of the Tombs, as a coadjutor of ths ladies of the nome. The saddest feature In her department, it says, is beyond ber p->wer to reform, alluding to the eonditien of this women's " five days' corridor," and their " shin ty" In ths prison yard. Here it is that the scam of the city, Its moral filth, is turned in daily tortmaln In mass es of indescribable wretchedness and drunkenness for five days, and then to ba sent to Blackwell's Island, or discharged, to return again and again. " Nowhere." says the report, "Is our visiter's work mere productive of goo' ibsn at the Tombs. She finds there msny to whom she thinks it advisable to give per mits for admission to tbe Home without ths Intervention of Blaekwell'e Island. She has found there very young persons, committed for trifling, and, as she believes, first offences, whom her timely interposition has saved, as we may hope, from farther degradation. In all eases Miss Foster proves a kind, judicious, and reliable co opera tor. " From tbe foregoing facts, some idea may be formed of the operations o7 ths Home among a class of people who, till tbe organization of tbe Prison Association, were re garded as outcasts, beyond ths sympathies and canslde ration of tbs community No mora need or can be said to commend it to pnblie favor.

But there are few persons, even among the most blati scons of Young America, who are so far gooe in their risguat of tho world as to re quire this last and best remedy which wo have prescribed them There are none of them to be found certainly among tbe industrious, poorer, labo rious, and tnerefore, more eontented portion of the popu lation. A few specimens might be picked np perhaps in Broadway of an afternoon, in tha halls of the Opera House in tbo evening, and la the Shakapere and other snobbish clubs at midnight; and by their hats and ec centric attire generally, as well as by their laaguid air in particular, "shall ye know tnem." But ws write not for the benefit of auch ae these. The country air, tha mountain breeze, the rolling of the ocean, would be too much for their we a- nerves ; the laxy pr imenads, the srietocratlc loafing in tbo club room, or a sojourn In one of the fashionable watering places, suit better both their tastes and their physical abilities.

The betting wa* spirited throughout the race. The bay gelding is one of the most perfectly formed trotting horae* that we aver recollect having a?en?his mnseuiar system is finely developed, and his form alto gether unexceptionable. To counterbalance these ad vantages, howi rer, he appears to have bad feet, and is tnuob afliic'ed by the scratches, whi h seem to annoy him very much, and cause excessive restiveness when trotting, making it difficult for him to maintain his gait. Of the roen gelding we will merely remark that he is a young horse?that his stride is very long, and that it is very difficult to make him change his gait. His steadi ness will make him a hard one to beat, when a few years older; and he is altogether a capital horse. One thing we cannot avoid remarking, and that is, that drivers generally exhibit too mush petulance after the lose of a heat or race: and instead of attributing defeat to their own want of skill, or the inferiority of their bones, too frequently vent their abuse on the judges when a decision has been given against them. Nothing contributes so much to sxilful driving as equanimity of temper, as many races have been lost through the want of it. And, in addition, we may further remark that dr.vers who act abusively can never hope to command the respect of gentlemen. It is now difficult to obtain competent judges, and the evil appears to be on the increase from the causes above enumerated. The following are the particnlars of the race Firit Ileal ?On coming up for the word, the bay lost a ekoe; but nevertheless the word was given. They had hardly got underway, and were rapilly roonling the turn, when the bay, who was on the inside, commenced breaking into a run, the lots of bis shoe appearing to effect bun greatly. While goiim down tho backstietch, he broke repeatedly, bat at lengVi reached the score, in 2 42>i. The rosn also broke, hut on the whole trotted very well, and came with.n an ace of winning tn* heat. The result of this heat, surprised some who were eo confident of the eupeiiority of the roan that during the beat they were offering t vo to one on him. Second Heat ? After waiting rather longer than usual between bents, to allow the bay to get his shoe on, they came up to the stand and got off well together at n rapid late. Whilst rounding the npp?r turn, the roan made a very bad break, and it required the utmos' skill of bis driver to induce lum to settle down again to a trot In tbe meantime, the bay had got several lengths ahead, and notwithstanding several breaks, was pro Sreeving rsp-dly. Loud cries were now heard for the letsnce flag, the backers of the bay being aanguiae of his ability to distance tbe roan. But distance was out of the question; for the roan having settled down to his gait, he uw.ee a tremendous brush for the heat, and gained so rtpicly that for a few moments the backers of the bay locked coubtiul, and were extremely ? ratified when be reached tbe pole a winner by about two lengths, in jt:48W. Third Heat ?They came up for thii heat steady, and trotting square, got the word, and otf they went as fast as tli| jr could go. The bay took the lead, and was get ting on rapidly, when he unftrtunatntr broke, aud defied the utmoat exertions of his driver to settle him. and continued breaking and trotting until he reashea the score, which he did a trifle in advance of the roan, in 2 40. After much altercation, the judges decided it a deal beat. fourth Beat.?kt tbe horse* came up for the word, the bey waa discovered to be very laine, and offer* that the rosn would win went begging. It seemel impossible for a horse so lame to trot another heat. After several attempt*, they got oil', however, the bay leading all the way around, trotting better and more steadily than in any of tbe previous beats, and reaching the pole in amulet the applanee of his backers and all the die interested spectators Friday, June 16.?Match $6C0, mile heats, best three in five, h1 narness.

Esq.? My Dear Sir?1 have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of jour letter ot tne ->7th ultimo, end the nswe peper mailed with it. and beg to toank you for them. I am alwajs gratified with any expreieion of confidence and partiality from my pertonal and political friends, particularly from thoee whom I have the honor to repre sent. He would be an unworthy repreeentatlve, or pub lic servant, who ia inaenaible to the regard and esteem of hie constituents; but as regards their personal wish and desire to present my name to the people for the high petition which they have been pleased so flatteringly to associate with it, I can truly and frankly ana wer?I do not desire it. I have no aspirations for the highest human position. Which I coosidtr to be that of President of the United States. The position has no charms for nee. I have seen sufficient of political life to know that the higher the individual is placed the greater his care, re sponsibility and labor, both to God and the human fami ly. Few have received so many favors from the hands of the people at myself, at my age. Although I have never sought or desired political distinction, yet I have never shrunk from repiesentetive responsibility when called by tbe free, spontaneous and uninfluenced suffrages of my fellow citizens. Considering wis a gloomy and trying period in ths history of our country, I may be permitted to offer a few reflections In regard to the present state of the Union. It is evicent that, however much the federal compact baa been tried heretofore, during the ba lance of the term of the present administration, and the period o! tbe succeeding administration, our compact will be more severely tried; end God only knows whethsr it is to stsnd or fsll. It will certainly lequlre, upon the pert of tbe chief magistrate the posasessioa and exer cise of all the virtues, forbearance, patriotism and saga city, with due eonceiaion and firmness, to maintain tbe integrity of the Union. In the sectoaai strife now waged between abolitionism and the slave interest, nulli fication and disunion are greatly to be apprehended. Your allusions to th" Revolutionary history and sacri fices made by tbe people of Me * Jersey, ere eminently true, which, in consideration of the geographical posi tion of the State, the interests and pursuits of her peo ple, all promise that a citizen of this State would be fore most in the deft nee of the Union, "for the sake of the Union," and her citizens will be found in an eminent degree to bold that conservatism ant loyalty to the constitution and its compromises, competent to stay tbe turbulence and fury of the combinations, (repug nsnt to republican liberty,) formed upon a single idea, and proscribing those who do not agree with them, and Which now exist to a fearful extent?(indeed, at this tsme a large convention is being held in Ph'ladel pbia, its sessions and proceedings being in secret.) Huoh asiemblagfe and organizations must be denounced by evsry true American as disturbing the peace and threat trirg the txlati nee of the Union. Under such a state of things the people ot this coun try?tbe lovsrs of free republican institutions and gov ermnent?want for tbsir President the right man?a ttrong man?honest and di?ln created in the appointing powtr, free fiom bigotry and intolerance upon all sub jects, religious and political; sensible of our power unit ed, tnd ot our weakness disunited; jealous of the honor of our flag, and imbued with the importance of extend ing oir territory wherever necessary for the develope ment of our resources, or for our safety and protection. Such should be, in my judgment, the actuating and gov erning principles <-f the chief magistrate of the free in telligent end republican people comprising these glorious States. The individual who combines thsse principles, with capacity in the highest degree, without regard to bis location in lhe Union, will moit fully represent the democratic party. His principles would tend to place more power in the bends of tbe people, and be would be most emphatically and truly tbe people's candidate? ene who would discharge the duties of the position with honesty, fidelity ami impartiality, at a liberal, progrea rive democrat, jealous ot the stability and preservation or the Union. New Jersey mav proudly po;nt to many of her sons in whose bands tbe dee'in es of this republic might safely he irusted; and it is a just matter of congratulation that every Sta'e of this glorious Confederation may con fidently do tbe same. Again I bsg to thankyou, and these yon represent, for your paTtlality to my State and myself; and, with renvments of regard, I am, very res pectfully, yoar obedient servant and fellow citizen, * RODMAN M.

But the Linda was the feature of the night. Mian1 Hensler is a young woman, with a good flgure, an ex pressive face, a sparkling eye and a most tempting pair of lips. She is a blonde. Her voice is a light seprane, very sympathetic in Its quality, and quit# full enou0? for the requirements of the comic opera. She dee* everything that she attempts well, and shows marks ef careful tuition in the best schools. In hearing her thn most refined ear will never be shocked by a false note or faulty intonation. She avoids meretricious ornament* and the affectation of the ultra French school, while, at the same time, she ia careful to lose no effective point where ornament is proper and legitimate. The Opera goer will see at once what an artist of thin cslbre would make of the music of such parts as Linda, Norina (Don Paequale). or Amina (The Bonus mbola). She does not act quite well enough; but that will eesnn hereafter, we suppose. She waa a little nervous in hen opening recitative, hut gained confldenoe as ahn approached her real work, giving the cavatinn Luce dl Quest Anima'* charmingly, and being in warded with three rounds of applause.
