Last night, botwen -twolve and one o'clook, -a' fire broe out in. the store kept by John Hazlitt, commission merchant, 6a Front street, between Ludlow-street and Broad way, which consumed, a large quantity of merchandise nnd a portion of the building. It is suppose! to have originated in a de fective flue, though it is possiblo that it was the work of an incendiary. When discov ered, the flames had made considerable progress, and the loss will probably amount to $8,000, on which there is an insurance, but on account of the lateness of the hour, wo were unable to ascertain tho amount. Tho building belongs to the Cassilly estate, and waj only partially consumed. A Cool Froceedihq. An enterprising agent of an intelligence office on Third street, who is too penurious to advertise in the columns of a newspaper, has several written notices of his business in the Post r.ffice, requesting applicants to address "H. Y," through the Pniss Office. The agent Certainly has a high appreciation of the value, in advertising, by connecting himself in some ' Way -with the Prkss, but wo are sorry to say we can not reciprocate, as we are certain that the connection will not add materially to the estimation in which this iournal is held. We therefore ftsk, that, henceforth, he will desist, as we do not de sire to rob the General Government of the annual rent of a box in the PostofBce. Water-works' Matters. The Board of Trustees of the Water-works, mot yester day, and allowed claims and accounts amounting to $3,055 89, of which $383 57 was to pay wages of hands employed; $1,231 50 to pay for 16,720 buehels of coal, aud $276 30 for hauling the Same. A number of complaints were made of ex orbitant water rents, but, upon examining the cases, the Trustees declined to reduce any of them. - i , - The Superintendent was directed to sell the large iron safe on the best terms he can obtain. Pipe was 'ordered to be laid on Dayton Street, from Freeman, about 400 feet west. ' Several street sprinklers made application to have certain privileges secured to tbem, but the Board thought best not to take any action on the subject at present. A resolution was adopted directing the Engineer and Superintendent to report the number of men employed in the several de pal tmcnts of the Works, tbe salaries paid, the time they have been employed, and the nature of tho service which they perform.

NotwitbsUndiug this, however, that section has been left almost entirely without protection against fire, in couse quence of which many heavy losses have been incurred, as a few minutes may be sufficient to give tbe flumes such a hold upon tbe combustible material of some of those large furniture and building establishments, that to f ave them would be impossible. , Night before last Mr. Noble introduced a proposition into the City Council, with view of establishing a steam fire-engine in the ward, but no definite action was taken upon it, and it is uncertain whether a majority of tbe Council will tavor the measure. . To establish tbe engine, however, would beau obvious act of justice to man who have done much to give this eity im portance abroad, and who hare added lurgely to its wealth and population, by giving employment lo hundreds of worthy ww-'heu- ics.

A London correspondent says: 1 The first volume of the paper recently es tablished in London, devoted to American interests, bos- just been - completed. Six months ago the new journal was commenced, and, as the editors say, they are in the full tide of successful experiment. At least 30, 000 Americans defile through Europe annu ally, and the number increases every year; the number, too, of our countrymen who are residents abroad, is quite large, particularly in England ; and there appears no reason why a good American paper should not flourish here; as- well as the Albion in New Yoik, or the Cnurrier det Elate Unit. '' Tho Loudon American is a weekly, and is a very passable paper, with Its chit-chat of occur rences on the other side of the water, though doubtless its style admits of elevation. But we may hope, that with increasing age and resources j may discard much that seems puerile in its columns, when we consider that its visits are not so frequent as to harass the editors with want ot sterling oopy, anfl that its price is neemly equal to that of the best journal of theliritiso preii, , i.i i i i . , Obihokpio Anecdcts or an 'Advocats' The witty Scotch advocate, Harry Ersklne, on one occasion pleading iu London before the Honee of Lords, had occasion to speak of certain curators, and pronounced the word as in Scotland, will ths accent on the first syllable, curators. One of the English judges could not stand this, and cried out, "We are in the habit of saying curator in this country, Mr. Krskine, following the analogy of the Latin language, in which, a you are aware, the penultimate syllable is long." , "I thank your lordship very much," was Ertkine's reply. ''We are weak enough in Scotland to think that in pronouncing the word curator, we follow the analogy of the English Janguage.

The Wat or tri Transgressor is Hjird. A young man not more than twenty-two years old, named J. G. Merritt, was yester day before Judgo Charles Mooar, charged with steiling $195 from a man named Cud worth, a jeweler of Cincinnati. Some weeks Since, Merritt and Cudworth were traveling on the same boat going from New Orleans to Memphis, and on acquaintance arising between them, they agreed to stop at the same hotel in the latter city. While there, Cudworth alleges that Merritt stole from his trunk the above sum of money. The facts elicited yesterday caused Judge Mooar to place Merritt in jail to await a requisition from the Governor of Tennessee. The ac cused was attended yesterday by his sister, who appeared almost heart-broken at the sad fate of her brother. Bleedino a Candidate. A prominent young lawyer of this city, a candidate tor the office of Prosecuting Attorney, was ap proached a day or two ago by a couple of .needy-looking customers.

"Well, me and this chap is going to give you a lift, and we thought you might have nn extra dime in your pockets."

Mr. Branch had hoped that such bills would be withheld for the present, in order that Congress might consider a measure of more public importance. Mr. Cobb replied, he would for that pur pose withdraw what he had offered, and every thing he had left in the shape of bills, but until some conciliatory measure was offered, he would, in other respects, perform his duty. Mr. Branch "I made no reflection on the gentleman. Mr. Cobb "I did not so understand you." Mr. Cobb - wished to know from Mr. Branch what was the meaning of the word "minimum." John Cochrane rose to a question of order, minimum is a Latin word, and the business of Congress is required to be conducted in the English language. Laughter. After further proceedings, the bill passed.' In provides that the word "minimum" be construed according to the land-graduation Act, so as to apply to alternate and reserved sections of land granted for railroads or other international improvements, and in favor of actual settlers, and not to mean $1 25 per acre, as now officially construed.

Hie Speaker s.u'd the parliamentary usage was to name on the Committee the mover of the resolution under which the Committee wss.-sjrdered to be framed. Ho bad emitted the name of Mr. Botelcr at that gentleman's ownrefine.it. He had endeavored to appoint tl'P Comtnittce to the best of his judgment, and at the tnrliest period in view of the im portant business with which the Committee was entrusted. Mr. Hawkins, of Florida, said: "Last Tuesday I begged to be excused from voting; for similar reasons I ask to be excused from serving on this Committee. I have con sulted with able members as to whether it is voluntary orjnot for a member appointed on a committee to serve, and have been in formed that he is compelled by the Rales of the House to serve unless excused, and that if he docs not serve he subjects himself to something like rebuke or reprimand on the part of the House. "Now, as long as I am a member of this body, I am anxious to respect all its rules, and u'm unwilling to draw upou myself re buke or reprimand; I therefore ask tho House to excuse me from serving on this Committee. If I am compelled to serve, I will be a very unimportant, not an efficient member. I know I can not act with all the Committee. As to the idea of getting up a Committee with a unanimity of purpose und in a UnioL-:aving manner, I have been op posed to any thing of the kind in the post, and am now, believing that the time for comprnmisehas passed forever." Jlr. John Cochrane, of New York, said: "He had heard, with a great deal of regret, his friend ask to be excused from serving 0n the Committee. It has been well said here to day, in the Chaplain's prayer, that the gray shadow of tho dark wing of dissolution has been e;ended over our House and country, and so dark is the gloom that we can scarcely discern one gleam of light to enable us to transact tbe ordinary business of legisla tion. ' Men's minds have been devoted for weeks past to the greut and absorbing tonic of con troversy, which eiilitts oil thoughts, aud de mands of every individual h;s best exertions and his purest emotions and wisdom. It is cf importance to this issue thut the Repub lic should command the eflbrt3 andexertions of all its citizens. I believe now, in the niidBt of this crisis, with the penis impend ing over the country, that there is no reason why this House, representing the p.Urioti;'ra una wisdom of tho country, should excuse the gentleman from Florida. I believe that from all parts of his Stiite, where the people are looking with solieituileon passing events and with anxious eyes, if tbe voice of his constituents could bo heard, it would be in tones beseeching and appealing to thmr Rep resentative to stand forward ia this issue, and stand the brunt of the controversy. He did not believe, with the gntlenian, it was important to the welfare of the country that there should be a unanimous report on the subject referred to the committee. However, God grant that it may be. Applau-e in the galleries, accompanied by cries of "Order on the floor.' God grant that It may be stamped w ith the unanimity which patriot ism demands. l;Ifthis country is not to be saved, if patriotibtn is not fuflicient to command this glorious result, it is due that the people of the United Statea should know it; it is due to the Lenijhled regions of the country that the facts should be impressed on thoir minds, und ignorance no longer be pleaded as an excuec for tbe acts which have brought us to this fearful precipice. If we are not to have a unanimous report to save the coun try froui the pangs and ajonyof secession, let us know what demands are mado by one tection ot the country from the other, and let us feel what is the pulsation of the coua tiy, and let us answer the examinatory in quisition, that comes from every quarter, 'Watchmen of tho night,' clearly aud con clusively, whether storms and madness rule the hour; whether there is a harbinger of peace, or whether there is one gleam of morning in wuicuwe way yei uiscern ine f-'arsend stripes IlofatLug from yonder dome." .ippiause. ill.

Great sensation. He further said, referring to probabilities of war "There will be no war. The North, governed by such far-seeiug statesmen as tbe Senator from New York, Mr. Seward, see the futility of this."
