TIiriWDAY HORXIKG, MAY 13.
Mr. fioaiuelPd Policy.
Til? fifth section of the Legal Tender
Act of 1862 provided that one per cent'
ot the public debt should be purchased
every year, with the ?:o?d received from .
customs, after the iuterest of the year t
la paid. While thus redeeming a por- c
tiun of the debt each year, a sum equal J
to the interest on that redeemed was to ,
be accumulated and applied to redemp- i
tion only until th? whole shall b? re- *
deemed. Up to the present time this
law has never been put in operation, <
bat for several weeks past Secretary i
Bjutwell has had under advisement '
th? expediency of enforcing it, and 11 j
was announced a few days since that ?
he had decided to put it in force from '
the end of th? present fiscal year, he
having instructed the Assistant Treas- i
urer at New York to purchase bonds to I
the amount of a zniJliua a week. It is j1
now atated by authority of the Secretary ,
that thia purchase of bond* has noth- c
lug to do with the sinking fund, i
Toe treasury holds a large surplus afier *
meeting the interest. me receipiB artbo
large as to reqder it certain that there
will bo a surplus, though how long
caunot be foreseen. While this surplus
lies idly in the Treasury, the Gov
ernment is losing the interest which it
would stop, if used in the redemption
of the interest bearing debt. The duty
of the Secretary would be very plain,
if it were certain that receipts in future
would be equal to the demands on the
Treasury?it' for example, the custom
receipts cc'ild ba relied on to produce
g >ld enough from now to the first of
July interest and thence to the first of No
vember to meet the November interest.
In order to employ a portion of
his surplus and still be ready for emergencies,
Mr. Bout well has determined
to buy bond*, a million a week, and
hold them. This saves the interest
while the bonds are thus held, and il
lor any reason there should be a temporary
failure of revenues, they
o >uld be put on the markc-t again.
It does docs something more; it
prevents each a rise in prices as would
follow the cancellation ol any considerable
amount, and enables the Secretary
to buy at lower figures than otherwise.
It is to be hoped, however, that no bonds
bougut in by the Government will ever
be reissued, and that tho Treasury surplus
will b? kept at the lowest figures
consistent with a due provision for the
liabilities of the Government as lliey
become due.

vkr.?The beautiful city of Tacna,
Peru, after having escaped the earthquake
that completely destroyed Arica, n
only forty miles distant, it is said to be
now experiencing a terrible visitation
of yellow fever. Of a population of n,
ten thousand, three thousand had fallen st
victims to the epidemic, and between
five and six thousand had fled to the
interior, leaving hardly fifteen hundred ?1
persons in tho place. Of these some
forty were dying daily, it is stared, and
the terror of the people was so great
that no such thing as nursing or assist- bi
anc? could be procured. The physi- Cl

iinpo&feible to do anj thing effectively. cl

TERRIBLE STEAMBOAT CONFLA- .
SRATION AT CINCJNNATI.
Six Steamers Destroyed.
The Landing in a Blaze of Fire.
The Biver Glowing.
Perrifio Scenes at Two O'Clock
This Morning.
From the Commercial of yaUrdiy.
Chiming in a terrible warning, simulaneously
with the striking of the Cahedral
clock, at 2 o'clock this morning,
he Covington and Newport fire and
shorcb bells rang out in an angry clater,
and almost immediately the sky to 1
he south of the city began to glow with
he illumination of one of the most disistrous
steamboat conflagrations that 1
jver occurred on ?he Ohio. Thefirewas
nits heat of awful destruction before
he alarm bells of this city sounded the
:ommand to our engines to rush to the
iver. Those who had heard the first J
aelJs and saw the lirst flames, had set- j
led down to tho conclusion that Cov- ;
ngton was suffering, or Newport; and (
ind theu people who were awake began j
0 believe that steamers were being
turned. By the time the first engines j
-eacbed the Landing, that portion of it ,
between Main and Broadway was j
jright to almost, daylight brightness,
md great leaping sheets of ll.cnes from
laif a dozen beautiful boats were reacting
their immeose folds far up thegrade
>f the lecee. Crowds who had already j
eacbed the point were forced back, i
1 way back up to the north side of lTront i
itreet, by the intense heat. ]
The body of limine was fully five 1
luodred feet long by a huudred iu '
vidth, and it reached up into the air '
ar above the level .of the Spencer i
Souse roof. The burning boats were ?
he Clifton, Mary Ervvin, Darling, 1
Cheyenne, Meluotte and Westniore- |
land.
The Charmer had dropped down out
)t tho way, and the West Wind, just
coining up, had towed tho St. James
)ut of danger. All statements thai
)ur reporters heard agreed on the Clif.on
as the starting point of the fire,
ind that it progressed iu the order in
which the boats are named above.
Tue llames from the burning boats
ihot far is;to the air, illuminating, al- .
nost the whole city, and shedding ra- .
liant snarks all over the lower squares
is lar north as Third street. The le
ree, that had been deserted for ro long {
i time, was suddenly peopled by ,
housamls of men, women and children t
tlarmed by the prolonged ringing ol ^
be bells, and a:traded from drowsy ,
^as by thw great light at the river. t
1'he firemen answered the first alarm
vi:h atuaz.ng promptitude. Horses
dunged madly along the levee, and
jo?e uurolled ltseii in all directions. i
The mere handful of firemen who i
lared meet the destroying element at t
he water's edge, seemed so puny and !
nsignificant in tbo light of the grand
errilic confl-^ration, that the crowds I
upon the wnarf could not hope for the
salvation of any that might be on board I
he doomed vessels; they could but
itand and gazaand sbudder. The light
.vood-work could not lone: withstand
he hot breath ol the Fire Fiend. /The J
i vmmetrical outlines* of the boats were
oat sight of in the sheets of flame and
he dense Volumes of smoke that envoi>ped
them. The white spars and the
ielicato tracery of the cabins were one
iiument resplendent?the next they
vere gone. Deprived of support, the \
leeks quivered and crashed down to J
he hull; the tall chimneys, in a second t
oppled over, and fell like forest trees, t
iouie upon the wharf, some into the c
vater. j
Oil burst from confinement, and flow- *
d in broad streams far down upon the i
urfaco of the river, resemblinir, when t
iewed from the Suspension Bridge, a t
eparate rivulet ot molten yold.
It appeared at the first a hopeless
ask to resist the progress of the tire on
tie six boats over which It had so 8
uickiy spread, and hopeless it proved. 1
'or the still breez-3 blow inn from the ^
Jast bore the 11 tmes from one boat to
nother until all were ablaze, and the v
ix river palaces were swept away like *
half before the wind. The firemen, 1
eeiog that it would be uaeiess to at- z.
3LUpt to save the boats that were on lire
rhen they reached the wharf, concenrated
their engines to save the steamers
jat lay above the Melnotte. Planting t
jeir hydraulic batteries on the steam i
r Silver Spray, they stood, with t
torching faces and blistering hands, b
irectidg their heavy stre uns of water f
j points likely to be attacked. They s
ere very successful In preventing the
dines from communicating to the boa?s
bove the Spray, and even that boat
as not injured by the dames to any *
ppreciable extent. At 3 o'clock, when
le conflagration had spent its energy b
n the six steamers, the firemen were
ill holding their own. J1
It is believed that no lives were lost 11
y lire, but a deck hand who escaped
orn the Clifton states that a compan- r
in, in trying to Rave himself, jumped c
ito the river and was drowned. e
When the fire was blazing fiercest, a ?
umber of kegs of powder on the Clif e
in exploded, but as far as wo could
>arn, did no particular damage.
