EVENING STAR.
LOCAL iMTBLLIGBNGE.

mometer, la our counting-room, at 12 o'clock
to-day, stood at 33 degree above aero.
Th* Accit)f.5t, Explosion, Fir*, Work
***. Fm****, Ac., at th* Nayt Yard.?in
the " Washington News and Qoe?ip" yesterday
it was mentioned that a great piece 0f casting
was to be done at the Navy Yard, in the after
noon. being a cylinder for the U. 8. Steamship
Fulton, the largest ever attempted at the?o
works A large number of ladies and gent *
men. the Commandant of the Navy Yarn
Captain Paulding, and other offioera, being
present to witness the operation. "
Two farnaces ware used to prepare the metal
And the superintendent (Mr William Bland)
of the iron foundry?which is separate from
that of the brass foundrv? was himself, and
his twenty or thirty hands, engaged in the im
mense work. At about ten miuutes past five
o'clock, the mould, which was within a few
pounds of being full, auddenly buret, driving
off the hands aod company present, and set
tic g fiie to the rafters, girders, and building
The expioeioft was fearful; but it is gratifvine
to say that not a life was lost.
The alarm given brought on the ground tbr
workmen, who rendered every assistance
bringing out the spouting engine belonging to
the copper rolling mill, worked by Dominie
Sherry. Mr. MeNally actively superintending;
the main engine beiug under the direction of
Mr. Uuigley, and both performing good ser
vice. Operated by steam, this little engine
threw a continuous stream upon the fire.
The AcacosUa was quickly at the rescue,
and did giod execution Our firemen fronr
tbe city brought their apparatas to the spot
promptly, the Columbia, Perseverance, Frank
lin. Northern Liberties, Ac , saving some
$(5,000 worth of property to the Government
ia pre-trying the valuable models, Ac., of th?
finishing department, te which they directed
particalar attention.
Messrs. John C. Tucker, Thomas Gcss. Mr.
Hunt, the officers and marines in the Yard,
and tho^e of the Fulton, did efficient service.
Combs Grinnell, engineer of the foundry,
stood te his post, turning the exhau* or blue
eoeks of the engine. Ac., in the mid*: of the
dinger, from which he would not remove, even
*t the call of the Commodore. John Simmons
4id also good servica.
Mr. James Tucker, head of tho blacksmith
ing establishment, and all superintendents of
the other departments, with their stalwart
men. took active parts in the saving labor. The
fire, however, resulted in the lo-s to the Gov
ernment of some five or six thousand dollars
The cause of the explosion is ascribed to the
raising of the tide in the pit, which, dampen
ing the mould or sand, rebelled against the
liquid iron poured upon it, and thus created
all the difficulty.
One of the two large cranes was almost to
tally destroyed, and the other materially in.
jured, and the building to-day presents an
^wful scene of ruin, though the rafters, gird
er*. and walls still stand.
Th* workmen, however, are already engaged
cleaning away the rubbish. and no doubt
"Uncle Sam" will soon have all in order again.
All the superintendents and men did their duty
manfully.
Among the injured we have ascertained that
James McCatbran was severely cut in the
head, James (iardner slightly, and John W
Minnicks scalded in the leg; others being
also injured by the flying slates.
Among the firemen there were several hurt.
Mr. Wm iiin/gold. captain of the Persever
ance hose, was- badly hurt by the falling of
the slate roof. His wounds and those of the
injured, were promptly and skillfully dressed
by the gurgeon of the Yard.
At the Naval store under the chargc of F.
McNerhany. refreshments were liberally fur
nished to the fireman and Navy Yard work
men. *
The members of th* Aoaoostia were on duty
at the ruins air last night
It is gratifying to conclude our report with
stating the fact that no one was seriously in
jured by the startling accident.
A2 Asc;ewt Newspaper ?We havo ra
seived from Mr. James Stoddart. * venerable
work, being abound copy of the Universal
Gazette, the nfftabers commencing November
17,-1797. and ending January 21, 1802. It
was published at Philadelphia, by Samuol
Harrison Smith, the first number containing a
card from Joseph Gales, announcing that he
had transferred the property of the " Indepen
dent Gazetteer," to be incorporated with this
"new weekly paper." The piau of the paper,
which was to make it generally interesting and
aaaful, was stated at length. With this view
a singular rule is announced, showing that an
important feature of a newspaper then was
th* very reverse of what it is now. It is as
follows : " As itis designed for extensive cir
culation, local advertisements shall altogether
be excluded, and those of a general nature
shall never oocnpy more than a column." It
oontains the proceedings of Congress for the
Ave years whi ?h the volume oomprlses, together
with many matters of interest in regard to the
early history of our Government. The French
Council of Five Hundred, the Directory, and
the exciting affairs of Paris in 1797 ; the ad
dress of the Legislature of New Jersey to John
Adams; his reply; Blount's (a Senator) im
peachment for plotting to wrest Louisiana and
I'lorida from France and Spain; messages of
Presidents Admus and Jefferson ; the removal
of ths seat of the General Government from
Philadelphia to Washington. Ac , Ac , fill its
wges The Universal Gazette is "nearly at
large as the Star, and must have been an im
poet vnt paper iu lu time. The time taken to
ebtain intelligence is a remarkable feature, be
ing nearly three days frcm New Yosk to Phil
adelphia. and ab->ut forty days from Vi heeling
and otner Western and Southern places. The
interesting and /alfcab e gift of Sir Stoddart
is highly appreciated by i;s recipients, and
they accordingly return their thanks for it.
Death or a Washisgtosian is Illisois.?
We recently noticed the death in Chicago, j
Illinois, of the very Rev. P. J. McLaughlin
and now learn from his brother, II. C. Mc
Laughlin, Esq , of the State Department, that
he has received letters stating that the Rev
erend gentleman 4ied of cholera It was con
tracted while attending the sick and dying em
igrants as they arrived at the wharves of Chi
cago, and thus the "good pastor" be-ame a
mart j r to hi* humanity aud. zeal, lie had
been for som* seven years pastor of St. Pat
rick's church in that city, and was also Ticar
ueneral ot Illinois and theologian to the Bish
op. Many in Washington well remember him
lathe President of F street Seminary, then
conducted by himself and the brother above
named, and is now in charge of the Rev Mr.
Barber of Georgetown College. The old
scholars of thai institution hear of his demise
with sincere sorrow, for he was much beloved
by them, as indeed he wis fcy all who knew
pim. The deceased was iu theforty-fift'n year
of his age. and has thus been called away in
midst of his usefulness, showing indeed that
M the ways of Providence are uiveterious." A a
a wall known and respected clergyman and
Washington**!!-, he stwd high in the regards
of our ertiseiw. and his memory is dearly
treasured by them. The Georgetown Advo
cate thus speaks of the deceased, from an au
thentic tourca:
" The Kev. Mr. McLaughlin will be remem
bered by many of our b>wn. He was a grad
uate of Georgetown College, and a more kind
hearted, and more gentlemanly, and learned
man has not died of late in that Chureh of
which he was a respected member. Jo the
virtues of a Christian heart, he added the abil
ities of an educated aud able theologian. He
was tho usual one selected by the Bi&hop of
Illinois in attending the quadrennial ?ynoa
whieh meets at Baltimore, and no better proof
need be ad'ied to attest the estimation in which
he was held in the performance of his do ties,
falling a sacrifice in a few hours from an attack
ef the choiera while attending to th* throngs
of suffering emigrants pouring in day by day
at Chicago, wanderers from their native land
To die in such a eause may well be deemed a
happy translation to a more exalted and more
glorious abode.
