We are induced to lay before our readers
the particulars of the late fire at Montreal.—
We often read in wotks of fiction, descriptions
of scenes that fill the mind with awe; but an
account like the following, known to be true,
is read with the moßt peculiar emotions. Such
a picture of destruction and human suffering
almost surpasses belief, and yet it details but
one chapter in the sad historv. The fire that
subsequently broke out, briefly noticed at the
conclusion, was quite as destructive.
Burlington, Vt., July 10—0 P. M.—The
following is extracted from one of this morn
ing's Montreal papers : Yesterday morning,
between nine and ten o'clock, a fire broke out
in St. Catharine street, St. Lawrence suburbs,
originating, we are informed, in the (flitbuild
ings of the houses occupied by Mr. Waugh,
baker. From this it was carried by the wind
in a northeasterly direction, to the adjoining
houses, which were all roofed witfi wood, ttnu
generally built of the same material. The
late dry weather having rendered them as dry
as tinder, the flames spread with astonishing
rapiditv. There was, again, no water in the
reservoir when it commenced. What madness,
or blindness, or neglect could have permitted
this to be the case, after the late frightful ca
lamity which visited them ? Blame mustiest
somewhere —where, we do not pretend to say—
but this we feel assured of; that the people of
Montreal will, with one voice, demand an in-
V'gtigatijn into the came of the disaster, and
justice against those who are culpuble.
Within half an hour after the commencement,
a hundred houses were on fire. They were
grnerally the dwellings of poor urticans and
laborers, and it was the most heart-rend
ing spectacle to see the poor people gathering
their household goods together, and carrying
them perhups to some place where the flames
would reach them iu a few minutes, after carry
ing them, as they thought, to a place of safety.
Frequently, by the time they hud removed one
load, it was too lute to return for more. In
many instances the poor mother had just time
to grasp her infant from the flames, and rush
to an adjoining field or guden, and sink down,
despairing and exhausted, upon the little rem
nant of property which her husband orchildren
had been able to bring there. The despair and
agony written upon their features were most
From the Main or St. Lawrence street, the
fire burned everything before it along St. Cuth
ariue and Dorchester, and widening its path
way up towards Cote a-Baron, and downward
towards Craig street.
As it went along in St. Dennis street, not
withstanding the most strenuous exertions to
lave them, the splendid buildings known us
Cornwall Terrace were consumed.
The tire having cauglu in Ellslie's wood
yard, and nothing but wooden buildings inter
vening between it aud the Montreal General
Hospital, that institution was in imminent
danger from about one o'clock until half-pasi
three, and the most strenuous exertions were
required to keep the tire from reaching it.
The Union Company did good service here,
and drew a large quantity of water from the
large cistern on the hospitul ground. Some
buildings and fences were also torn down here,
and the tire was checked in St. Dominique
■down below Dorchester street to near Luguu
c.ieteie street. Above this, it made a clean
aweep up to the vacant ground, which skirts
Cole-a-Baron and extended eastward along
Dorchester, Catharine and Migiione streets.
It made a clear, sweep to St. Dennis street,
which was burned from one end to the other.
The Bishop's church aud palace fell a prey
to the flames. The greater part of the palace
iiud been newly erected, und was a splendid
cut alone building, with beautifully fluted
columns before the St. Catherine street frot.t.
The fire ran down St. Catherine street to the
house of Mr. Coffin, joint prothonetary, which
was consumed. Ttie nunnery opposite was
saved, though the fire raged on thrf e sides of it.
The buildings on Viger Place, including the
cattle market, See., were destroyed, and here
the fire was ariested.
On the lower side, at Elizabeth street, aud
from that to Viger Place, the flames came with
in one or two houses of Craig street.
Over six huudred houses have been destroy
ed, and the loss of the real property will be
probably from one huudred and twenty-five
thousand to one hundred and fifty thousand
pouuds sterling. Not any more than half the
amount, we believe, is covered by iusurnnce,if
so much.
The loss of persouul property it is impossi
ble to estimate. Many poor working mechan
ics and laborers have lost their little all, and
few of them, we fear, have taken the precaufion
<o insure their furniture. From £15,000 to
L 20.000 we think a moderate valuation of these
losses, exclusive of what has been lost ia the
church and palace, the wood-yards and the
shops, whirh will probably be £10,000.
The totalloss we should set down at £420,000
1 his, u will be seen, is about the amount of
the loss by the fire of the 6ih June; but it en
tails consequences uoon the city far more dis

hile this large fire was rngrng, another one
began, kindled, as we are told, by the sparks
'rom the lire which consumed Meters. Siiumti
& Coltnm's tltttin planing mill*, iu Si. Mary
street, Quebec suburbs, and tilts greater Dart
of the lumber in their yard. The distillery and
foundry of the Messrs. Melson were in immi
nent danger, but were saved by the exertions
ofthofe upon the premises. The loss bere
will amount to about £2000 or £3000.
After the foregoing was written, we went to
take a last look at the ruins, it was mournful
as we drove along the Bite. Cote-a-Baron. —
The large vacant field extending from the
main street to St. Dennis street, lying just un
der the Cote, was filled with groups of men,
women and children, and their little piles of
furniture and goods, while all around and be
low them was a smoking wilderness, covered
with chimneys like a burned pine fcrest, with
its scathed and charred trees, and the Champ
de Mars and Viger square were similarly oc
cupied with heaps of goods.
While on the route, we witnessed the com
mencement of another conflagration. The
wooden building in the rear of Hayes' House
having been ignited by sparks from the other
fire, the flumes worked their way to that build
ing, which was consumed, and all the houses
on Dalhousic square, including the Hon. Mr.
Moffat's residence, and the mess houses of the
Royal Artillery and of the Twentieth regiment
and the Military Secretary's office.
The fire is still raging at the hour we write.
Godonly knows where it will stop. Montreal
seems to be doomed.
P. S.—The fire has crossed Amherst street,
on its wav through the Quebec suburbs, and
it does not seem as if any power could save
any portion of that populous ward.

necessary by the burthen of a heuvy public

On Monday last Franklin Court House was
the scene of an affray of a serious character
which resulted nearly in the death of a gentle
man of the highest respectability.
About 12 o'clock, while sitting, quietly at
tending to tho proceedings of the Court, we
heard a considerable noise immediately behind
the bar, and, on turning to ascertain the cause,
beheld two men engaged in administering a se
vere castigation to a third individual, whose
vociferous cries of inurder indicated that the
dose was any thing else than agreeable. The
assailants were Messrs. Joseph and Randolph
Dickenson, merchants in Franklin county, and
the subject, John Soyars. We regret to add
that Mr. Wingfield, a luwver, residing near
Rocky Mount, interfered to separate the par
tie*, and while doing so, was stabbad in the
right side by Soyars, who, it is supposed, took
liim to be an assailant. The wound, though
severe, is thought not to be dangerous.
The circumstances are these. At a previous
term of the court John Soyars appeured as a
witness for the Commonwealth against Pinck
ard, a presentment, but not being above suspi
cion, several persons were called in and exam
ined, and among others, Randolph Dickenson,
who testified to Soyars' general bad character.
Inconsequence of which Soyars had a hand
bill printed, in which Dickenson was denounn*
ed as a perjured man. This bill was posted to
the wall of the Court House, in a conspicuous
place, and read by many persons, among them
Randolph Dickenson and his brother—where
upon they procured, the one a hickory stick,
of goodly size, the other a cowhide, and went
in search of Soyars. He, in the meantime, had
retreated into the Court House, hoping, it is
presumed, to be protected by the presence of
the Court. But we are sorry to state that the
dignity of the Court was insulted by an assault
in the very temple of justice. We never wit
nessed a scene of such excitement. The or
ders of the Court and the efforts of the sheriff
being totally disregarded. The Messrs. Dick
enson were fined $25 each,and ordered to be im
prisoned four hours for contempt of Court, but
the imprisonment was afterwards remitted.—
They aregentlemen of the highest standing, and
were justified by public sentiment in flogging
Soyars. The contempt of Court of which they
were guilty, they now, no doubt, heartily re

I'll tell you of a nice young man,
Who.-e name was Peter Gr»y ;
The State where Peter Gray wa* born
Was Pennsylva-ni a.
This Peter he did fall in love
All with a nice young girl.
The na -ue of her I'm positive
Was Lizzyanny Quirl.
When they were going to be wed,
Her lather he safd "No!"
And brutzlly he sent her otf
Bsyond the O-hi-o.
When Pe'er beard his love was lost
He knew not what to tay,
He'd half a nind to jump into
The fcusquehau-nia.
But he went trading to the west,
In lurs and other skins,
And there was caught, killed aud drest
By the bloo.' y In-giins.
When Lizzyanny heard the news
She straightway went to bed,
And never did get up agaiu
Until she dii-ed.
Ye lathers all a warning take,
Each one as has a girl,
And think upon poor Peter Gray
And Lizzjanny Quiri.
I have little sympathy for machinery; the

Whatever these may happen to seize between
their iron teeth, once seized, the thing must
pass through a hole more cr less great, towards
which all tabricable substances are conducted.
Of whatever size the thing may be when
it goes in—let it be a beam of the greatest
thickness—it will come out stretched into a
knitting needle of the greatest fineness. As
for the machine, it merely turns—that is its
business and its duty, and it mutters not to it
what the substance be which it has to crush
and draw out. You offer it an iron bar—the
monster draws it to itself, and devours it. You
don't take your hand back quickly enough—
the machine pinches the end of your finger,
and all is over. You may cry out ; but if
there be no workmen present with a hatchet
to cut your wrist off, after the fingpr comes
the hand, after the hand the arm, after the
arm the head, after the head the body. Shrieks,
oaths, prayers, nothing will avail you; the
shortest plan for your friends or family is to
look out for you on the other side of the ma
chine. You went in a man, you come out a
wire; in five minutes you have grown 200
feet. It is curious, but not agreeable.—Alex'

The Crops.—Thus fur, the rains have fallen
in due season. The wheat crop is now saved,
and the oat harvest is progressing, and promi

season. So that the Richmond and Danville
Rail Road Company may calculate upon a
heavy carrying business from this section.—
