The train arrived at Portland, on Wednesday at 11 o'clock, eighteen bturs behind time.

An examination of (,he returns proves, beyond doubt, that the charges of. fraud, made by the Pcmocratic papers, are true ; and that J'pliri Burnett had a majority of at least 00 of the legal rotes of this State at r' c June plecUpp. In all of the counties not affected by therailroad influence and Ben. Hojladay's money, Grant re ceived as large a vjjtp,.and in many in stances a larger vote, than did Wlm t .Tone election: and no doubt polled the full strength: of the Bepubli can party in Oregon.

IflES ESTIMATED - AT frMO.OOO. About half pasf nine o'clock ;on Sun day morning last, a fire broke out in Portland, on the levee side of Iront atreetnear Morrison which, consumed die two blocks lying between Morrison and.Whgton,.on tbitf sde of $Wt street, and half of the bltck on the west side f Front, between Morrison and Alder streets: .Every effort was made by the efficient -Eh Department of that city; but not until this 'district had ibeen' onsumed" vcre the;gal- lant firemen able to stop the march of the desolating demon. About noon, a panic sieved, the people, who,, with the calamities of Chicago and Boston so fresh in their memories, seemed, to fear that their happy little city was about to share a similar fate. Assistance was tel- eraphed for to Oregon City, Vancouver, Salpm, Alhany and Eugene. As soon 1 . 1 as it was possible, engines arnvea from the four first meutioned places, and rendered valuable aid. Business houses in the vicinity of the fire were soon cleared of their stocks, and preparations made for a general conflagration j but at about two pclopk, 0.9 Sunday" after noon, the fire was got' under control. and confined to the district already do scribed. The heaviest losers are S.J. McCormick, W. Currier $c Son, Wood- ard & Co., J. B. Congrp, 4- G. Walling B. L. Stone and II, W. Gorbett. The Occidental, St. : Charles, International and American Exchange au,d Post office bujdipg narrowly escaped de struction, afid were saved only by the well directed streams, of- the engines. This is by far th,e most - disastrous fire that has ever visited Portland, and should at once arouse its citizens to the importance ' of the organization of; a more efficient system of protection, both bv an increasp'iu the number of engines and a more I adequate 1 "PHpply of wafer. Much praise is begowed. upon the uero ic efforts of Portland firemen, and sin cere gratitude expressed for the prompt mid emcient aid renoerea Dy nremen from abroad. An explosion oppurped in he basement of Woodard'a drug store, and a number of firemen were seriously injured by the fajjing walls.- Robert Holman, ex-Chief Engineer ; J. F, Gal lagher, Foreman of No. 4 ; John Moore Sam Allen, E J. Porter and Thomas Ryan were seriously, if not fatally hurt.
