RUSSELL ERRITT, Chairman. Ezra Lukens, ) q , John M'Oullouoh, nccB- GENERAL NOTES. Chicago is taking step3 to proven t a repetition of the two great fires. Fighting with the Indians is reported from all along the Western frontier. At Washington no notes have as yet been issued to the new national banks. In the city of Boston there are twenty one savings banks, with more than 570, 000,000 on deposit. The new directory of Springfield Mass., contains 10,753 names, an increase of nearly 700 since last year. Last week the fishermen at Barnegat amused themselves by dragging blue fish ashore with garden rakes. During the harvest time throughout some sections of the country farmers ore glad to get hands lor 3 per day and board. It is eaid that the usefulness of the English sparrows is greatly destroyed by feeding tLctn in the summer. In Gardiner, Maine, ice can be bought Jor$4perton, whilst in New York it brings all the way from $15 to 25. General Fhil Sheridan has been au thorized by the War Department to pur sue and punish the hostile savages on the frontier. Immense clouds of grasshoppers alighted one day last week near Colum bus, Nebraska, aud are doing some dam ago. They are rapidly moving east ward. John Kaiser, Ehoeuiakcr, of Franklin, Ohio, ended a four weeks' spree on the 15th inst., by shooting his wife aud in stantly killing her, aud then killing himself. The police of the Brighton district, Mass., Sunday night made a haul of six teen railroad thieves. They had been operating considerably on cars switched on side-tracks. Six hundred buildings were burned and three thousand people rendered homeless by the late fire in Oshkosh Wisconsin. Loss about 1,000,000 and insurance 8100,000. From four millions to six millions of dollars will cover tho loss by the Chi cago Sre. Of ibis sum the insurance companies will have to pay two million five hundred thousand dollars. The Secretary of the Treasury has determined that there shall be no defici ency bill reported to Congress from his department, and has given notice to all officers of the department to that effect. Under the will of her uncle, just de ceased, Mr 8. General Bristow, wife of the new Secretary of the Treasury, has just fallen heir to a fortune of 230,000 Fortunes, like niihfortuDCs, never come single. Secretary Robeson will soon issue a new order with regard to the manage meat of the several navy yards in the United States. The most stringent economy is to be practiced, and the force in all the yards will be reduced. The boll and army worm have made their appearance in Middle Alabama, eastern Mississippi, and in many paris hes in Louisiana, Three largo planta tions in Middle Alabama have been en tirely destroyed within three days. A fire on Saturday afternoon, on the farm of Joseph Bennett, eight or nine miles from Trenton, on the Penusylva Bia side, destroyed his barn, two child ren, aged seven and nine, eight loads of wheat, and a large quaatity of bay. lhe children were playing with matches in the cellar of the bain, aud set fire to the bay. If half the croaking men would cease their grumbling, roll up their sleeves, do an honest day's work and stop mak ing the panic an excuse for not paying honest debts, confidence would be res tored, trade rovived, and every honest, industrious man would be enabled to pay one hundred cents on the dollar. The last Indian war Uncle Sam en gaged in, that with the Modocs, was at a cost ot 8500,000 for every Modoc killed, aud a little cyphering will sat isfy any tax payer that it is cheaper to feed and cloth the Indians than to starve, strip and fight them. But theu, fn times of peace, contractors would have no chance to supply munitions of war ot triple prices. Last March, in Topeka, Kansas, R. W. Ferris and Fred Olds quai relied over a game of checkers, when the lat ter killed the former, burying his body ia the celler and giving out that Ferris had gone East tm business. The latter not seeming likely to return, Olds was arrested on supiciort, and now confessed the crime in the District Court, Nathan Isaacson has been arrested in Chicago, charged with firing the build ing that caused the fire on July 11. The testimony taken goes to show that the prisoner offered a peddler named Wolfson 8100 to set the house on fire; that the peddler had once made an un successful attempt to do so, and then boasted that he would have better suc cess the next time. The hearing of the case baa been adjourned. A PITTSBURGH HOLOCAUST. PITTSBURGH AND ALLEGHENY CITY INUNDATED HUNDREDS REPORTED DROWNED PROPERTY SWEPT OFF BY THE RAOINO WATERS THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE 8TORM EVER WIT NESSED IN PENNSYLVANIA LATEST PARTICULARS. Pittsburgh July 27. This city was visited on Sunday and a portion of Sun day niht by one of the heaviest fulls of rain that has ever been witnessed in this section. Its terrible results was sufficient to iospiro the great terror that prevailed among the people burning the heavy fall of rain. I: fell in great sheets completely deluging the place and threatening to destroy the entire property and people. The rain exten ded within a radius of 15 miles, and swelling the streams tributary to on en ormous height which was thought at oue time to be the cause of the inunda tion, but it has since been proven that its cause was not from tho rise in the rivers, but the rain, which completely deluged the place. THE DAMAGE inflicted is at the present time incalcu lable, extending as it does over a grea ter portion of tho city,and tho confusion is so great that it is utterly imposiblc to arrive at any correct statements. The greater portion of tho daaiage, though, falls upon the railroads, and the foundations oi many of the largest and most substantial houses have been so badly injured that it is feared they will have to be entirely re-built again. Numbers of frame builiings were lifted entirely ftoin their foundations and floated oil some distance A number ot rEilSONS WERE DROWNED, according to the reports in here, but as yet do bodies have been recovered. In Allegheny City, which is situated a short distance fruui here tho storm is reported to have raged with equally as much if not more violence than it did here. A number of houses were com pletely destroyed there aud the distress and loss of life is represented as being terrible. Over fifty persons arj reported drowned, many of whom wero swept out ot their houses into the rncinir watets. Besides these a number ore reported as missing aud as in here it will bo ut'erly impossible to dutermiue the losses until THE WATERS SUBSIDE. The waters poured down in floods from the hills, sweeping every obstacle that came in its way. The Pennsylvania railroad shops and engine house are partially submerged. The Fort Wayne road is reported to have escaped the flood entirely, Lut the Pan Handle route is represented to have been considerably damaged. The workfcho'S being almost entirely submerged ami the track and bed of the road has been washed away for some distance. It will not be rendered fit fur service for sev eral days aud perhaps a week. T II It UNION DEPOT was in considerable danger ot being flooded at one time, but the alarm was given and the fire department responded quickly and by- their combine J efforts relieved the pressure of the waters enn sidcrably, The Pittsburgh yard is filled with mud, stones nud other iL Iris to a debth of several feet. THE STORM reached the height of its violence be tween c'uht and ten o'clock. The night was the darkest imaginable, and cbovc tho roar of the elements the crits ct those in distress could bo distinctly heard. The storm did not extend be yond Wall's station, fifteen miles beyond the city. LATER. 2:40 p. m. Tbo loss of life is more frightful than was at first supposed. Reporters are now hurrying in from the scenes of the disaster, and they repre sent a still greater loss of life. At Bueuera, in this State, and about eight or niue miles from this place, tho num ber of persons drowned is said to be 100, of which 07 bodies have bceu re covered. BTILL FURTnER MORTALITY. At Saw Mill Run the loss is reported at CO drowned, of which number 31 bodies have been recovered. At Wood's Run the loss is unkowned but it must have been terrible, as 75 bodies have been found. The scenes are appalling, and among those who perished are many women and children It is the direst calamity that bus ever visited this section. Hundreds of faru lies are rendered homeless anl tho suffering is incalculable. TUB RAIN. fell for several hours and was accom panied by a severe wind storm. The country for fifteen miles around here was completly inundated, causing the Monongahela to swell into a roaring volume of water. A number of vessels were washed from their moorings ut the wbaves, into the country and swamped. The damage to property cannot now be estimated, and the loss of life is feared to be greater than has beeu thus far reported STILL LATER THE LOSS OF LIFE ESTI MATED at 21'J. Pitsburgh,July,28 Noon. It is now thought that the loss of life will reach 219. Business in this city and Allegh eny will be suspended at 2 o'c'ock this afternnou for the purposo of taking some action towards raising means for those who have suffered by tho terrible calamity. In Chambcrsburg recently, we learu from tho FuLlic Ojtt'nio'i, a lady think ing she would have a stewed fowl for dinner, killed a chicken in the usual manner. Upon cutiug open the gizzard, however, she found it crammed with potato bugs. Tho effluvia atrising from the bisected organ was nauseating and she threw it out with the entrails. Preparing the other portion of the ohicken, she cooked it, but when placed upon the table and tasted, the flesh was found to be so impregnated with "bug juice" as to necessitate the discarding of that part of the meal.
