BY WM. HUBBARD. It was just such an Autumn morn as this how many years agof Let me see: John 1 now twelve years old, and was then but two, I know We bad loaded the wagon the day before, a wagon s'auncb and new. And away we hied on the Autumn mom while the grass was wet with dew. Tbe yellow dust was damp and still, on the smooth and quiet road. And gaily the bay and sorrel team moved on with our household load ; The leaves were tinted with yellow and gold, and colors of myriad sheen. Ana tbe meadows had lost in the early frost their tinge of summer green. I mind me well how the rhocks of corn stood in the fields by the way How theyellow pumpkins, like nuggets of gold, in the open furrows lay. How the luscious apples hung ripe and red as we passed the orchards by. Where tbe children played in the pleasant shade, all under the misty sky. W'e were moving away to the Illinoy, where land could be cheaply bought ; The homestead farm wasn't large enough for both the boys we thought But, if It were to do again, peradventure we would stay. For we often sighed In tbe Illinoy for the dear old home faraway. The land was cheap, and the yield was great, and we have enough to divide Between (he boys, and leave the girls a handsome thing beside; Bat, one or another, we never were well ; that is, I mean to say. Not quite so well as we used to be In tbe home whence we moved away. We lived five years In the Illinoy before the sickly fall Ah ! that you may very well believe was a trying time for us all ! All. all were down, my compan'on dead, and I never got over the blow ; Though Jane was grown, and took care of things right well, as all of us know. And Ephralm now looks after the farm; of boys ha Is one of tbe best; He said to me: "Father, you're growing old It is time you had tone rest So take little John and go back once more to look at the dear old home Yon can go by the cars, not the toilsome way by which we bad to come. Who Is that man yonder? He looks to me very much like Jason Black; But Jason, I'm sure, walked very straight, while this man crooks In the back; And Jason's balr wore the raven's hue, while this man's bair is white Ah, me! I forgot what time may do in ten years of his flight. Qod bless you. friend ! Coma, sit you down, and tell what I would know Of neighbors well remembered still, whom I knew long ago; I'm back to the dear old stamping ground, and brought little John, my boy. Leaving Ephralm and Jane to care for things at our home in Illinoy." And Jason said, and sighing said : ''Old friend, 'tis sad to tell Of the folks who were here ten years ago, and whom you knew so well. But few are left, fcr scores are dead, and many have moved away. And the few you meet you will hardly know, so changed are they to-day. You mind the man who bought your place a stout young fellow was he. But he died of a fever the second year, leaving wife and children three, 'And they managed bad, and the Sheriff sold the homestesd for debt. And where they went 'tis so long ago if ever I knew I forget. "Your neighbor Gates, across the creek, for a long time he lay low; And died at last let's see I think It Is Just six years ago; And Jonah Gates, his oldest son, I s'powe you have heer'n tell. Gave up to drink and playing cards, and isn't doing well. "I can not name them all, of coarse, but a score of our young men Were lured away to fields of blood, -and never came back again ; Some gave up their lives at Gettysburg, some fell on tbe march to the sea.

THE FIRE FIEND. Furious Struggle and Final Triumph. Graphic, Thrilling and Comprehensive Picture of the Scene. A -Told Tale Well Worth the Reading. BOSTON, Nov. 11, 1872. The entire world has already learn ed something of the visitation by fire wnicn win leave Boston's nameamong ine most sauiy celebrated. The story bas been told, so far as cataloguing the losses goes and sketching under the fearful pressure of the moment the impressions felt by its splendor and its awfulness. Now, thank God, that the well-worn phrase that the "fire men have got it under control" has become a reality, I may be allowed to lead you back over the track of deso lation On Saturday evening, as night be- gen to fall, nothing had occurred to alter tbe easy way of things in this city. Saturday night in this city of the .Puritans is tbe gayest, the most care-forgotten of the week. In con trast of the holiday of rest which the habbatb is. Saturday night means cheerful household cares in some cases and light-hearted hilarity in others. It nal been a delightful day, and the snn never shone on Boston in a pleas anter mood. It sunk away in the west to the music of a light breeze and the He bum or tne city. Boston, as America playfully knows, is a city of narrow, quaintly crooked street' ; the two which may be called princi pal are wasnington and xremont. they run generally east and west thro' the greater length or the city. On the north of Washington street are the dwellings of tbe middle classes and tbote of the richest lying beyond xremont street and around tne rar- famed Common. Along Washington street are the fancy stores, jewelry, millinery, retail dry coi.il boots aud shoes, and all the other businesses bicb create and are created in turn by the fair promenaders, who in the bright afternoon, in all the cities of the world, go shopping Un it, too. are situated most or the daily newspa per offices. If Tremont street in the more fashionable or the two. Wash ugton is a close rival, though more TINGED WITH COMMERCIAL ACTTVTTY Tremont street may be described as tbe Kegant street or the Boulevard des Italiens, while Washington is the Oxford street or the Rue de Rivoli. Running from Washington street south In the direction of the water are certain streets Summer, Frank lin. Milk, Water and State. These are crossed irregularly by other streets Hawley, Kingston, a short street. but, not to be forgotten, Devonshire, Federal,Congress,Pearl,01iver,Kilby, Purchase and Broad, wbich latter run ning down in a south-westerly direc tion from State until it reaches wharves, continues along tbe water front and behind tbe wharves. With in the limits I have mentioned that, is bounded by Washington, State and part of Broad on the north and west, and by Summer, part of Bedford and the waterfront portion of Boston on the west and south lies the gieat wholesale trading portion of the city, and this is where the fire raged, de voured and conquered. Fortunate it is that the great beehives, where peo ple of tbe poor and struggling classes nestle and nuddU, lay far to the east and west of this circle 1 have marked, which, too, was indicated for a dis truction second only in American an nals to Chicago.or perhaps to Portland. On tbe streets within this circle were the proudest and costliest structures wbich tbe hard toiling city had reared great palaces of granite, piled up so as almost to shut oil" in their very am bition to reacli me sxies the daylight from the narrow pavements beneath. It would be useless to detail these buildings or their thrifty owners in a sketch. I merely wish to set the scene in the capital of the Bay Island State, the so-called Athens or the Hub of tbe Universe, as ia half jest, half earnest, Its denizens love to style it. Wben on last Saturday evening, Nov. 9tb, at seven o'clock, the fire bells pealed out to ring up the curtain on ! its greatest drama in night one bun dred years, clang, clang, clang, they sounded; but Boston, outride the Fire Department, little heeded. Ah! it was in tones that would not be denied. In a large granite building, on the corner of Hummer and Kingston streets, some baud, in carelessness, perhaps, or by tbat strange thing called accident, naa KINDLED A LITTLE HUNGRY FLAME. Inside the massive granite walls it fed fatly on the timbers, roared up through the elevator shaft as through furnace chimney and leaped up to Mansard roof, lapping it around and glaring redly out to the gaze of the silver moon, as a hery bappno, pulsed with bot, passionate blood, would glare and gloat beside tbe ice-cold chaste- fiess or Diana. uracRing, nlssing aud rearing, it poured its burning passion forth aud piled dense clouds of smoke between it and the clear, cold light above. It would have all the great piles around for its own cr none. It was the work of but a few minutes. Men drawing steam fire engines along came rushing (town to tbe spot, and the hissing of the water, the panting the engines and shouts of the men soon mingled it all, but tbe hungry flame had grown Into a giant and upon high rolled scoffingly along the para pet, clapping Its huge bands in glee. That pigmy man below could not master it nay, could not reach it. Out of every window it came peeping till the thick walls glowed with its fierce embrace. The men below still came trooping in to beat it down. It only roared the more, as it would say, 'We shall see." It -nued to tne ligbl north-west wini for help, and the wind rose responsive at every breath. An atmosphere of black, blinding smoke, interwoven and interlaced with living pre, was swept upon the iiow brisk breeze over tbe streets at hand, burning the wooden housetops nd seeming to scorch the very air. Alltuis while it was oi ly playing. Crash after crash was heard within tbe pile of glowing granite. Tbe fire men fled before the portent, and only tfme, for, putting forth at once its monstrous force, it burled too solid alls out before it and behind it, send ing theiu trembling iu a thunderous rumble all around its feet. Then Iu . it to a pr lea THE NAKED MAJESTY OF HELL leaped forth a very Lucifer upon the city around. It was scarcely half an hour from tbe booming of the bells tbat this happened, and happy Boston only turned aud gaped and passed on. It was not lor long, however. Once released from its prison of stone, the fire crossed Kingston street with a bound to the westerly corner of Kingston and Summer streets, then over Summer street to the corner of Otis street, taking the whole block bounded by Otis, Devonshire and Summer streets aud Winthrop square, nown as tbe Beebe block. 1 hen it passed up Summer street towards Washington, on both sides of Sum mer street; on tbe south side of Sum mer street it was stopped by the large store of C. F. Hovey dt Co., a few doors west of Chauncey sireet.oo the ortbeny side or Summer street, assed up to Washington, taking iu Trinity church in its course, and onlv leaving the building on the northerly corner of Washington and Summer streets, occupied by the Waltham Watch Company, and then It took the wnoieor Washington street on the easterly side down to the corner of wasnington and Milk streets. The water was reached by the flames about midnight, taking all the stores on the soutneriy side of Summer street, the new block of. buildings at the junction of Bedford aud Summer streets, end ing in tne destruction of the Boston Hartford & Erie Railway Depot. At the same time tbe fire spread to the right and left, taking as its course to ine nortn toward tetate street. From tbe corner of Miik and Washington streets the march of the fire was along me soutneriy side of Milk street until it passed the new Fost Office building Long before it had reached this id Palling mapniturin of trihntnrv reirinn Boston was awakened to the apparent uooui mat was unon it. Alen restint? at home from the labors of the dav caught the flare in their eyes and tbe terror oi its majesty in their souls Kicn men. with tbe maddening tbo't oi being ricn no longer, rushed from their costly ease on Beacon street down to where tbe awful beacon of their financial destruction was rushing to ine say; inousands, awed and cowed by the fearfu 1 spectacle, pressed upon the cordon the" police were forming wiin urave persistence, but not witb perfect success; men who had some thing to snatch away books, paper, merchandise and money were seen with teams, or without them, as need commanded, carrying off the lit tle that was portable at such a time, furtive-eyed thieves.like the foul birds that pick out the eyes of the dying lion, warmed themselves in amid the flurry. Who at such a time could tell honesty from dishonesty, as both staggered out ladened with their property or other plunder? When the fire worked down relentlessly to ward the water, where were some dwellings of the poor, scene9 of aeony, of misery, were witnessed, which it is one of the few blessings left that they were not on an extended scale. If the flames called the wind to its aid and wasauswered with a huiricane, MAN SENT A CRY ALONG THE WIRES for aid, and from all the cities round t came, almost instantaneously com pany alter company of firemeu, with their engines, and went gallantly to work. As the great buildings fell around Winthrop square, along Dev onshire, Federal, Congress and Pearl streets, it became evident that all that region should be abandoned, and all etlorts were made to stay it at Wash ington and State, to which latter. although it never fully reached, it was rapiuty approacning. A GRAND AND FEARFUL SCENE. Shortly after midnightl gained the roor or one or the highest hotels in the city ; it commanded a view of tbe field of demoniac desolation. I can not say If in such momeDts. where exceptional emotions arise.one should reel mbamed to confess himself awed. As I clambered upon the roof, some four blocks distant from the utmost limit of the fire, and felt the flush of the infernal heat upon my face and tbe wild glory of tbe exulting confla gration swim in its miraculous bright ness oeiore my eyes, my neart leaped with a throb which had in it some thing of a horrid, joy which all hu manity and all reason could not quiet. The tossing ocean of vivid, vengeful fire, breaking around and submerging everything, had in it all the grand emotion of the ocean, but intensified to the soul iu a manner altogether in describable. Here the rioting fire waves broke against a tall building. anon they rose above it like tbe tide, then with a reverberation, as the uilding fell crumbled and frittered beneath it, it sent dd a deluge of parKs nee golden spray. Tnere was wealth, or sublimity iu the Picture which, like all things sublime, caught tbe mind at once. All this time brave men were struggling against what seemed doom. Preparations were be ing made to fight fire with fire, as water had failed. Tbe marines from Chariestown Navy Yard, in their blue overcoats, came to the aid of the city authorities as a guard upon the property. The circle of the fire was roped around, and sentinels forbade tbe thief to enter or escape. Great masses of incandescent debris lay heaped through all the burning dis trict; places unseamed, but threat ened, were emptied of their valuables as rapidly as possible all this while tbe transfixing sight was before m eyes. Among those who stood beside me little was said, and tbat iu low tones, save where a youth, with a ill youth's irreverence, talked silly jokes iij uuapprtrciuuvt) eurs. a THE WIND VEERED ROUND. and a mass of acrid suffocating smoke was carried into our races, causing th eyes to run with water, as though Hvaven had sent an angry breath to tell us tbat this was a scene for tears and not for idle gazing and raptdred wonoer. i descended to the streets, but found them impassable. Every shade of fear, horror and terror was visible in tbe strange, weird look and abstracted, nervous action of tbe thousands who hurried to and fro. After endeavoring fruitlessly to pick my way in the direction of tbe fringe ot me n re, wasnington street, I re turned to the hotel. I met a thin faced, gray whiskered old gentleman at tbe door, who was smoking a cigar. He seemed tbe coolest man I had seen, but he was a loser by the calam a to .i ity to tbe amount of some hundred: of thousands. While talking to i group in the hall I was startled by i loud detonation. We rushed out me chanically but of course learned noth ing for tbe moment. THE FIGHT OF WITH FIRE had begun; houses were being mined and blowu up to make tbe gaps wider over which the fire would have to stride if it would go still further. Bold and determined as was the eff ort did not succeed, save in one spot. near the water, at tbe angle of Broad street. The wind towards morning grew weary of its help to the flames aud died away, borne great buildings, like the almost finished Post Office, stood boiuiy out, soeitering their brethren in the rear, w ater, too, was doing yeoman's work, and the flames gradually lost tbeir violent sway, Along Washington street, from Sum mer to Milk street, two blocks on the bouthein side were laid in ashes. Here the firemen worked like heroes chain down the fire. To tbe north lay tbe portion of thecitv I have spo ken of as containing the dwellings of me mooeraieiy wen io uo. u nis was prize worth winning from the flames, aud heroically was it wrestled for. Men trembled as they thought wuai tnigni be tr the hre once i;d that street. It did not. On corner of Washington and Milk streets was another prize for which fiercest fight was made; on the other side of tbe street it was a strug be It u ond I on aud the his of ty, his gle for home; on this it took a color of devotedness wbich will not be wrongly stated as patriotic. on THE REVERENT OLD SOUTH CHURCH. This battle was for tbe old South church. It was for the old laud mark which bears upon its front in plain, bold, capitals tbe legend, "Old South Church; gathered 1669; first house built 1670. This house erected 17:): desecreted by the British troops 177o," its cnastespireseemeorat times, in tne profane ambition of the fire, as if about to look for the last time upon the city it had watched over so long watched in hope when the col -iiisw were praying and working tbeir way to a fuller freedom; watched in shame when Burgoyn's troops used its sacred preciucts for a riding school to train the would be cut throats of American liberty, and watched with faith and pnde upon almost a century or Amer ican independence. This was the relio of bitter, bloody and glorious times, for which they batuea ana bat- tied not in vain. Millions through out the Union will be glad to learn that tbe old South church is saved. As it was in hope and trembling to the people that the moon went down, so after a while the sun rose red and sullen out upon the bay, as if fearing to look upon the havoc tne nignt naa made. The bre was burning danger ously in places, but for the most part in a low, lurid way in the ruin it could not increase. It was a sad sight to the eye of day. Twelve hun dred militiamen held guard over the district through the day. Thousands visited in moodiness the scene of their losses, whe: her as capitalist or laborer, as the hirer or the hired. When night came down once more over this Sabbath of sorrow to Boston, a walk mrougn ine cooling ruius was a carnival of misery to the spirit. For getting tbe grand buildings that twenty-four hours befoie reared themselves where sow was tbe abomination of desolation, the scene outlined so fan tastically ana vaguely, was one of peculiar impressiveness. Here and there overlie wide area among the .... , , tumbled chaos, where order and sym- etery once reigned, portions of walls. like indistinct ghosts in theirshrouds: .ri;n. ,-7i ,n i,i J l'ua''i uuifaiuo. o ixj a isau-? iirtui rffiLl1,1?. lV!? came down to Vvlini lln rising, and about one o'clock in the morninrr an exnlnuinn wm heard 0 THE SECOND SERIES THREATENED. ... ine aiarm was sounded, cianging over tbe city once more, and soon darkness followed, except in the five places where the hre again broke out, The gas had exploded in a store in the burned district, at the corner of Sum- mer street ano wasuingion. bringing to the front a danger already feared. The front of the store was blown into the street and damaged the windows on the opposite side of Washington street. There were many citizens on tbe street and a regular stampede was tne result, wbicn threatened more serious consequences than tbe explo siou Itself. Detonations followed in quick succession and it was with dif ficulty tbe crowd, which, finding itself more rrighteued than hurt, could be Kept from actually endan gering itself. On Summer street and Central court It was round that build- ings were in the grasp of tbe fire I wbich were believed until tbat mo ment free from danger. Pbe Park House was close in the rear of the second conflagration, and the great retail store or Jordan, 3larsn x Co., not twenty yards from the flames. Here the firemen directed the water from a dozen steamers. If the fire had pas I'd this point tbe tall granite buildings on tbe opposite side of Washington -street would be envel oped, and tbe end, as before stated, no one could foretell. The cumped out thousands of Chicago rose before the mind's eye and nerved tbe arms I of thousands to assist in the work. The tact, toe, tbat the buildings re ferred to were stored with highly combustible matter made it a matter of almost life and death to win. The dcuizens of Avon street were instant ly ordered to turn off the gas and va cate tbeir buildings, from the fear of additional explosions, this produced a scene of horrible confusion. Half clad women rushed into the streets, carrying their clothes and their small valuables in their arms. A great many of the families thus ousted were generously received at tne Adams House. At this juncture telegrams were dispatched to various poiuts to send on again tbe engines, which, in the belief tbat Boston s calamity bad gotten over its worst, had been al lowed to return home iu tbe evening, This call, despite tbe fatigue of the hremen, was instantly answered with the needed help. THE FLAMES BEGAN TO LAP es over the Park House, and it was ac cordingly on the exposed side deluged with water, as well as the store ol Jordan, Marsh & Co. After the first explosion it was found that Mrs. Martha Hudson had jumped from the first floor window of her house in Summer street, injuring herself fear fully by bruises aud burns about the legs. In another house on the same street tbe firemen were just in time in putting up their ladders to rescue mother who was about lumping In to the street. The thieves again seized their opportunity to rob by rushing into houses. The presence of the military, aud an angry and ugly feel mg with regard to lynching among the citizens, restrained a great many from their dastardly avocation. The gas in the city had been turned off, and tbe darkness wbich followed sent great many of the curiosity led mul titude to their homes. At two o'clock the buildiug which originally caught fire fell to the ground. The flames were happily, by the means aoovi described, prevented from spreading the larue buildings bebiud. Four other houses, however, were added to tbe terrible catalogue of losses, and al least a million dollars Io the property destroyed, tbe total of which proba ply foots up $250,000,000 and includes dispossessed nrms in iweuiy-eigui streets.

Passing Old South Church I saw the militia posted at the door of the church.

On tbe opposite corner the strong cham ber of the North American Bank. seemingly intact, was watched over by the directors, ihe President, W . Ii.

VARIETIES OF COAL. Prof. E. B. Andrews, State Geolo gist of Ohio, delivered an address, re cently, before the Cincinnati Br-ird of Trade, on the coal fields of Ohio, i u. wnicb ne spoke as follows of the or igin and leading varieties of ccal : Coal is formed from vegetable mat ter. The leaves, bark and vecetabia tissues are visible in the coal itself. ' Coal vegetation grew where iioti- found, and was not a mass of vegetr.- Die detritus carried rrom the land ai,d buried under the sea. as some think. Coal vegetation grew in n-arshes and on low islands skirting an ancient hore. Fishes and marine shells ara found in coal and accompanying slate. These marshes were sometimes flood ed, and beach-worn sticks carried iuio the marshes and are now lodged into the coal. Tbe marsh settled down and the vegetation was buried by sanda and clay sediments, which now forms sandstones and shales. This subsi dence was a regular and uniform thing until arrested, and the waters were silted up with sand and mud. A new marsh formed, making another seam of coal. Hence a beautiful parallelism between the seams of coal, tor each. represents a water line. The coal thus formed is of three kinds: highly bituminous and cokinr. splint and cannel. These pass into each other by almost imperceptible gradations. L-oKing coal formed from tbe veg etation which has before burial un dergone the least change from decom oeition. A tree or branch buried in impervious clay always makes bright resinous coal. Fittsburg and You"h- iogheny are of this general class. Good steam coal where it can be stoked. , Not so pleasant for the grate as the dry burning coal. It is good for cose, and generally for gas. biilimcoal is tormed from vegeta tion more changed, which has been raoresubjected to wetting and drying. It is generally laminated, and breaks into tabular blocks in fracture and dry burning. It is generally rich in carbon, and from its nou-cementinj; nature is especially adapted to the blast furnace. Cannel Coal In the ancient marsh there were areas where the water stood more or less, and thera were ac cumulations of vegetable mud cr muck, such as we find in bogs now. All vegetable structure is tone. and. wnen dry, such muct forni3 a dark and impalpable powder. Such muck beds, in the aucient marsh, when burned up and compressed, aud bitu iasofaras minized. formed cancel coa). which shows no structure, seldom anv lami- . . . . . ' - . . nation, and breaks with a concl'.oriilu fracture. This coal, when free from. impurities, makes a popular parlor coal, and gives to gas a hiii illuminating power. Asn in Coal Is derived from the ashes or inorganic matter in the orig inal vegetation, and from the sedi ments which were brought into the coal marshes. A coal from Jack son county gave .77 per cent, of ash. rom this minimum it ranges to even or 30 per cent, and, when exces sive, destroys the value of the coal. buipnur in Coal is deri'-cu. in part, from the original veceti..ioii.Lu5 probably more lrom sulphatt3 ia ocean water, decomposed by theactIo:i decomposing vegetable matter. Part of tLe sulphur is united with iron to form pyrites or bisulphide of iron; part is united with the bitumi- nous matter and is volatilized ia cooking the coal, and part is found with the Bxed carbon of the coke. A mere trifle is fouud in the ashes. For iron making, in blast furnaces. more sulphur parses off in tbu cooking which takes place in the to;) thrt furnace stack the better, since pure coke is chiefly needed. For gaj making it is just the opposite. The total census of horses in tr.;--country was 4,337,719 in 1S30, 0,lM0,17i ISC0, and 8,'j90,9i)0 in 172.

A celebrated divine who was re markable in the first period of lii.s ministry for a boisterous mode of preaching, suddenly changed his whole manner in the pulpit, aud adop ted a mild and dispastionate mode of delivery. One of his brethren then inquired of him what had induced to make tbe change? He repiitd, "When I was young, I thought it tbe thunder that killed the peo ple, but, wben I grew older and wiser discovered tbat it was the lightuinir. determined to thunder less aud lighten more."
