In some cases wooden buildings were saved while brick buildings on each aide were burned. On the easterly corner of Myrtle and Cumberland streets a wooden building wax saved while every brick building on the square wan destroyed. Heretofore wo havo considered the city particularly safe from con Hag rat ions. Our Fire Department is excel lent, and the celerity with which dangerous fires have been subdued seemed sometimes marvellous. At any rate we are happy in the bollef that such a blow cannot be ex pected to strike twice in a ccntury, as all the old and dangerous buddings are swept Ms clear, and the city will be rebuilt with the greatest attention to future secu rity. Our shade trees were a wonderful protection on the outskirts of the Urn, and to them some bouses owe entirely their protection. Our business places are getting considerably mixed. Wood A Sous, brokers, are In Mitchell's wholesale grocery on Fore street, and Davis Brothers, stationers, are Lappy in n spruce gum factory, with their workshop over a wholesale grocery on Commercial street; while Bailey & No ye?, stationers, have secured half ot Brad ford's tool shop. Looking dowa Exchange street the only building to be seen Is Duran's block, at the foot The Merchants' Bank has taken shelter In the second atory of an ice office, and l'ayson, broker, has taken the front of Nash's stove store, beneath Barbour, stovo dealer; and Farley, nautical instruments, has gone In with Pearce, the plumber, two doors above. The Canal Bank is In the State Liquor A.'ency, next door, and the Second Na tional Bank is with J. B. Carroll, Insurance agent, next door above. Woodman, True A Co. have gone Into Gait's Block, on commercial street, and Deering, Milli ken A Co. are at No. 31 on the same street The First National Bank ha* gone into a house on Fore street. The Cumberland Bank promises to have a new build ing for lts< If ; and Lowell A Senior, tho principal Jewel lers, will has e a new store on tholr old site In Exchange ftreot in sixty days. Il is reported that fishing vessels hare carried away immense quantities of good*, and that much was carted off into tho country: but most of It was taken to the houses of friends and not stolen. There were some on?es of extortion bv teamsters and hackmen. One man pa:d a hsckman sixty dollars to carry his wife and children to a place of safety. But most of tho men worked at regular rates, and one teamster, who lost all his own property, worked all night for nothing. Tiionsunds of loads were taken without any wttrd of agreement or settlement at the time, and humanity and brotherly love predominated. Tho city was crowded with visitors, who worked manfully for the citizens without price. Hundreds came on special trains and labored strennously. . The telegraph office was burned at eleven o'clock ; but the energetic Superintendent, while It was burning, en gaged a place under Lancaster Hall, where It is now located, and, tho wires being down In the city, operat ors were staiioned at the ddptos, and commu nication was not Interrupted a. moment Mr. Chase, Superintendent of the P. S. and I'. Railroad, took a gang of flfty men, and by tearing down buildings pre vented the fire from spreading up High street Two hand engines, by saving the kerosene oil store on Foro street, saved all the lower side of that street, and most of Commercial street There Is still great difficulty In purchasing provisions, hardly anything coming in for sale. targe donations are arriving, however. Among others, Sherbrooko, Mon treal, Ottawa, and other Canadian citiee have tendered assistance. I cannot learn of a single authenticated ease of loss of life. The Prett, Advtrtiier, Star and Tramttrlpt appeared on quarter sheets to day. The Prut has moved to s>aco and the Argus to Blddoford, and will appear to-morrow morning. Tliey have telegraphed for now materials and will soon resume here. In the Swedenborgian parish all bnt half a dmcn fami lies lost eithor their homee or places of business, and many both. Rev. Mr. Shollcr, of the First Baptist Soci ety, lost his house, church and newspaper (the ?<"?'* Ad vacate), and most of the members of his congregation were burned out Mr. Little, agent for the Phoenix, Merchants', North American, City, and New England Insurance offices of Hartford: the Harmony, of New York ; Wentern Massa chusetts and Atlantic, of Providence, and Atlantic Mu tual, of Exeter, estimates their total loss at 1200,000? all of which aro reliable and ready to pay. It la expected that a party or roughs from the large cities ore hcra and will try to nwkg a rtud oq our b?uks. Large numbers ot citlxffis, thfirounhly armed, with the police, and a detachment of tho Third artillery, sent by Colonel Edwards from Fort Preble, are patrolling every Quarter of lii6 city. The treasure Is thoroughly guarded, and If tho attempt Is made they will be returned (Vt foremost. There Is no gas on yet in any part of tho city; but the city is pretty well lighted fiom the blazing ruins and numerous beds of "winter's coal" la cellars, which will burn for days. mrXTRT FOR THE SUFFERERS.

"A True Spiritualist" objects to classifying such a de voted and respectable spiritualist as Judge Edmonds with such a charlatan as Colonel Goodwin. Our corres pondent states that there are but three regularly orga nized societies of spiritualists In this city, under the laws of the State, viz.:? The First Society of Spiritual ists of tba City of New Tork, holding meetings at Dod worth Hall; the Society of Progressive Spiritualists, holding their meetings at Ebbitt Hall, and the Society of" Christian Spiritualists, at Lamartlne Hall. These socie ties hold their meetings every Sunday, morning and evening. They have no cabinets or dark rooms, no tying of medium*, nor tipping of tables; they discard every species of immorality, seek for divine truth, be lieve In the Immortality of the soul, the life everlasting, with eternal progreaslng, but not the resurrection of the body.

"X." furnishes us with an interesting account of the passages of the United States monitor* Mlantonomoh and Monadnock? the former to England from New Tork and the lattar to San Francisco from Philadelphia. Neither of the vessels was designed by Mr. Ericsson ; but, on the contrary, the plans on which they arc built were disap proved by bim, who predicted they would result in fail ure. The plans of these successful monitors emanated from the Bureau* of Construction and of Steam En gineering of the Navy Department. All the machinery of both, with the exception of the main enginea of the Monaduock, was designed by the Bureau of Steam En gineering. The Monadnock's engines are according to the patent of Mr. Ericsson. The reports from the sea trials of the two vessels give the following result*, to which are added their dtmenalons:?

The attendance was vary large, tha number being esti mated at over eight thousand. Tha weather was delightful and the track in capital condition. Previous to the race George Wilkes was the favorite at one hundred to fifty, his recent victories over the mar* on Long Island loading hta partisans to believe him In vincible, the fact of Lady Thorne not being herself when the late matches came off being entirely overlooked. However, when the first heat was won by the mare sh* at once became the farorite, and two to one on her found few taken. Very large amounts were staked on th* result before th? horses came on the track. Lady Thornc took the lead with the word In each beat, and was never headed in the race. She made one break In the second heat, but Wilkes making two, she had th* best of him in that line. Neither horse was considered np to the mark In point of condition, but Lady Thorn* was far better than when she trotted with the stallion on Long island.
