Confiagrations in Great Cities. The partial destruction of Charleston re calls the numerous historical examples of a simitar fate visited upon other cities. In the fierce and sanguinary conflicts of the olden time, burning cities and towns were among the. ordinary and most common inci dents of the war. How many times did Jerusalem suffer from the flames, and how numerous are the cities which more modern times hare seen destroved in the embittered border feuds of the middle ages ? We have had but little of this in our present strife, and it is a fact which oan not escape com ment, that the first marked incident is that city of the South which has been bo ready to condemn to the flames our Northern homes. The extent of the conflagration at Charles ton, though comparatively great for a oity of its size, was trifling in comparison with the destruction which has visited other cities. But six or seven millions of dollars, worth of property was destroyed, while onr own great fire of 1835 swept away $18,00&V 000. The number of houses destroyed were nearly as great, however, whioh shows that many of those at Charleston were of inferior value. New York has suffered from other fires of fearful magnitude, but its history in this respect falls far behind that of European capitals, of which many examples are cited in an article on "Fire Doomed Cities," in Bidwtltt Eclectic Magazine for January, 18G2. Moscow, in Russia, is the most hapless of these fire-doomed eities, having a history of conflagrations without precedent in ancient or modern days. Two thousand persons perished in the flames of its burning dwell ings in 153G, and a still more fearful calam ity followed in 1571, when it was besieged by the Turks, who set fire to the town, from which its inhabitants could not escape ex cept to die by the sword. The streets were paved with great fir trees, oily and resin ous, and the houses of the same material, furnished no obstacle to the flames, which, aided by the furious winds, swept like a Btorm over the eity. Two hundred thousand persons were reported to hare perished, but this is an evident exaggeration. Yet thou sands of the country people had taken re fuge in the city from the publio enemy, and the poor creatures ran into the market place, and were "all roasted there, in such a sort that the tallest man seemed a child, so much had the fire contracted their limbs a thing more hideous and frightful than any can imagine." A still more fearful conflagration visited Moscow in 1812, when its three hundred thousand inhabitants were ordered to quit the city, which was fired by the Russian au thorities. "Thirty thousand houses, seven thousand principal edifices, and fourteen thousand inferior structures, were reduced to ashes. The prirate loss is supposed to hare exceeded 30 000,000 sterling." "Palaces and temples," writes Karamsin, the Russian historian, "monuments of art and miracles of luxury ; the remaining of past ages, and those which had been the oreation of yester day ; the tombs of ancestors and the cradles of the present generation were indisorimi nately destroyed." London, too, has been the especial mark for the flames, from the days of the great fire in 1666 down to the fire of last June, in Tooley-street, which was one of the most de structive of modern times. Constantinople has also a prominent place in the list of fire-doomed oities. In 1729 were consumed twelre thousand houses and seven thousand persons ; and in 1745, six thousand lives were lost. Other destructive fires occurred in 1751 and 1756, while another in 1791 destroyed thirty thousand dwellings and nearly eight thousand peo ple. In the present century Hamburg and Co penhagen, in Europe, and Quebec, Canada, hare suffered most severely from the flames. Let us hope that the old barbaric specta. cle of cities given to be burned may not be added to other horrors whioh are insepara ble from ciril conflict. , If the Charleston ians must consign what is left of their city to the flames, few will regret its self-imposed doom, eren though, as at Moscow, where aspen plants sprang up every where among the ruins of the place, the winds should bring the seeding of a forest to for ever hide the spot where once stood the oity whose pride waB its ruin. Deadness of Prayer-Meetings. "Why it,1' inquired a the other day, "that the Fulton.street Prayer-Meetings are so well attended, and so eminently spiritual and interesting, while most of the other meetings are cold and al most deserted?" "I do not know," was the reply, "unless the admirable five-minute arrangement for prayer and exhortation, under God, has ac complished it." ' . In this brief dialogue there is much for serious reflection. It is a faot not to be de nied, that most of the weekly prayer-meet. ings connected witn the churches in this city, are in a deplorable state of desertion and Btupidity. They are cola, and conse quently heartless. They are dull, and, of course, almost deserted. They are unat tractive, and, of necessity they repel rather than invite worshipers. No five minute rule exists even by respectable utage, but some of the brethren travel the 'round world" over in pursuit of topios on which to elaborate and expound, when they rise to lead in the devotions. They exhaust themselves and their hearers, and aid in killing the spirituality of the meeting, if any exists at the time they "take the noor. It was only the other evening, in the prayer meeting of a large and wealthy up town church, where less than fifty were as sembled, that an aged brother went into an extended biographical sketch of a friend, whose burial he had that day attended. Long, wandering prayers are the bane of devotional meetings, and should be discoun tenanced and abandoned. The rigidity and formal manner in which many prayer-meetings are conducted, crush out heart freedom, and prevent the rise and glow of spirituality. There is nothing of the kind in Fulton street. No long prayers, no extended, weiry exhortations, no singing of hymns of six end eight verses, each one to be read through entire by the presiding officer, r. No calling habitually upon certain brethren to pray, and no weary waiting for somebody to rise, when the "meeting is open for remark or prayer." But ever there is the outgushicg of the ' heart, brief, earnest songs of praise, the fresh religious expeT rience" of those who hare 'just ' caught glimpses of heavenly light,' and th short, ardent Dleadings of sinners for forgiveness, and craUtude rfor meroies received.

[From Le Follet.] Two distinctly opposite Btyles will, it is paid, meet with equal success this winter. The skitts of dresses will be worn either ornamented to excess, or tor there is no medium thoroughly simple and void of all ornament. We can hardly realize this ex treme of simplicity, especially as w find our elegantes wearing flounces, soutaches, and passementeries of all kinds. It is true that for an in-door dress a variety of orna ments is unnecessary, and even inconven ient. For "robes de vllle," of course the rate is quite different. One thing is certain, a handsomely trimmed dress will always have a richer appearance than one less so, let the material be what it may. The only difficulty is to choose from the mass offered for our selection; comprising email gauffered Bounces, ruches, braidings, passementeries of all kinds, buttons surrounded with lace on fur, colored pipings, tassels, pompons of frayed silk, medallions of velvet or silk em broidered in satin-stitch, lace flounces or insertions, very narrow gauffered frills, bands of velvet or silks a ditpoeition, e. Flounces are never nut to the bottom of the Bkirt, and are placed together, or in rows with spaces between, according to the faaoy of the wearer. Many are placed in twos or three, and each set headed by a rush or band of color. They are seldom pat straight round the skirt, hut in randykes or scollops. The flounces are not hemmed they are either bound or pinked. Many dresses are trimmed en tmique, and it is expected that this style, being a becoming one, as it gives hight and grace to the figure, will lontr remain in fash. ion. The bodies of dresses are made either round or with two points; if the latter, the points in front open. Thev are closed to the throat or open encceur, according to the style of the material, or the purpose tor which the style was designed. Alpaca is still a favorite material with th Parisians, and seems to be gaining ground with the English. It has the ad van tarn nf falling in graceful folds, without so much danger in cutting ae exists in many other fabrics. Poplins, either English or Irish, are much worn. Taffetas, an ti fines and moires still maintain their rank. Velvets are gen erally trimmed with Astracan, either real or imitated, in Thibet wool or frayed siik. It is a very rich and soft trimming. Foulards are much in favor, despite the winter. The moBt lasnionaoie are tnose with brown or gray grounds, and colored flowers. A white foulard with colored patterns, making a rery elegant erening dress, and has the advan tage over tarlataoe in that it will wash. Soutaches and cords are very much worn. Tbe designs in which they are made are very rich and fantastic. The skirts are worn very full and long behind, but rather shorter in front than formerly. Colored petticoats are as much in favnr for ont-of door-wear as ever. They are made in wools or drougets, in plain materials, and trimmed with wide bands of relretor colored merino; in cashmere, with designs printed to imitate laces this latter is hardly good taste; the most elegant and expensive colored petticoais are in Diacic atik, .emitted with white or color in various patterns, in saaares or medallions, etc. ibe Zouave vest is not superseded by the Garibaldi, but is no longer accompanied by tbe waistcoat of latute or muslin: the sea son requires warmer materials, such as cash mere in ail colors, emoroidered in black and wnite. Tbe robes de chambre ' Louis XV." are in great favor; the front fits to the body, and mo unci put in large DOX-piaits, wnlCtt tall from tbe Bhoulder. The corsage is open to tbe waist, and the skirt is opened from the fastening at the waist; this style of dres made in velvet and trimmed with Chinchilla or Astracan, has a very rich effect. Laces of all kinds are much worn, both for dresses, bonnets, trimming, or for articles of out-door apparel. Black lace is much worn in evening dress and often accompanies white materials. The colors most in voeue. ner haps not those most worn, but at all even is the most elegant and fashionable, are grays in all shades, the Havana brown, a nar.uliar shade of green, and a new .shade of violet of a very blue tinge; this last color is an ex pensive one, arming tram some diihculty in the preparation. Ribbons of shaded velvet will be worn this winter for bonnets: black-spotted with white. or violet with black cross-bars, seem the favorites at present. Artificial flowers will be in great request for ball-dresses this win ter; they should be mixed with lace, Alengon, Chantilly, English blonde, or gold and silver lace. They are placed either in large de tached bouquets, or in.long branches on the skirt. The bonnets made by our principal mil liners are no longer raised in a high point. They ere distinguished from common place bonnets by the fact of their being rather square at the top and very open at the sides; they are still large, but not so large as they were. The top of the cap is full of flowers, or feathers, Ale, and the sides of blonde or lace, are very full. The crowns are worn either loose or plain, and the curtain of a moderate depth. Bonnets are srenerallr composed of two different materials crape and velvet for full-dress bonnets; silk and terry velret for those of less dress. The most fashionable colors are claret, green, Capuchin, a new gray, the violet before men tioned, and black mixed with white. of in in a or a as We find the following items in tbe Pro-vott Guard, a new paper published at Padu-rah: As UsroRTCNATa Fact. A gentleman in this city, who was present at New Madrid last Angust. tells tbe following: It will be renumbered that one of the Confederate gunboats came up to Columbus and captured the little steamer Equality. At that time General Pillow was in command at New Madrid, under General Polk. The latter bad just paid a visit to New Madrid wbea the capture of the EgualUg occurred. As the Confederate gunboat retreated down the Mississippi with her prize, she was followed by tbe United States gunboats Lexington and A. O. Tylor. A sharp cannonading took place to within a few miles of New Madrid, General Polk, hearing the cannonading, in his fear, imagined that the United States forces were coming after him, and hastily issuing an order to General Pillow to fall back upon Eandolph, himself retreated on board the steamer Wm. M. Morrison and left for Memphis 1 At that time the Morrison and Ohio Belle were all the steamers at New Ma drid, and the cowardice of the act was in taking the largest and. swiftest boat for him self and staff, and leaving but the Ohio Belle to transport seven thousand troops to Ran dolph I , ... Tbe retreat was undertaken, but only one. third of th men were able to be moved, leaving tbe other appaieitly at the mercy of the United States forces Tbe gentleman informs ul that curses loud and deep were showered upon be head of tbe preacher General, and the i hundreds of them swore they never VToold. fight under such a canting coward, x , - i ,.,,; . Among th many sad sight that w lee, the saddest is that of a lasUiouabl audience in a fashionable church, sitting nnder the preaching of the Gospel by popular min ister and no more affectid by what tbey kear than are the Sands of Sahara by the rain and dew. . In reference to such, we have often thought of the trayer of Dr. Ma son, "that God Vould work - them up to a sens of their duty before they woke up amid the fires which burn forever."

January 3. -The reporter for the Associated Press did not, as is alleged, report or circulate the report that General MtClellan bad dismissed the charges brought Biigfldier-Geceral Rosecrans against General Benham, nor ha9 he until now so'ut single word upon the subject The facts are briefly thefe: The charges involve the conduct of Gen eral Benbam as to the pursuit of General Floyd, and the canse of the escape of the lat ter with bis army. General Benham has denied the truth of the charges, and asked for a court martial, but this was refused at tbe present time, from the fact that the chief witnesses are attached to the army of West ern Virginia, and are now serving in Ken tucky, and can not be even temporarily withdrawn. In other words, the trial is postponed to await the convenience of thmr attendance without detriment to the public interest. Promises of Forward Movements. Nw York, January 3. Advices from Port Royal indicate that Commodore Du pont is preparing for a new naval demon stration. Gunboats are concentrating and a large number of armed launches are practic ing to assist the landing of troops.

No More Trouble with England Expected— Cotton to be Planted at the West. rumors current in the newspapers that further trou ble may be expected with England, rising out of our blockade of Charleston and Sa vannah with stone hulks, are regarded here entirely without foundation. General McClellan's health continues to improre. The Government has taken measures to obtain cotton seed from Port Royal, in order that it may be planted in Illinois and other Western States.

The Gorernor's Message suggests a liquidation of the direct Federal tex by releasing tbe Federal Gorernment fiom reimbursing tbe State, on account of war expenses, to an equal amount. Twenty-four thousand men have been fur nished by Michigan for tbe war, of which ten regiments for three years, one battery of artillery, and one regiment of tbree-montbs volunteers, bave been raised at the expense the State, costing $539,000, of which $92,000 have been refunded by the United States Gorernment.

Decision of an Important Land Case— Mileage. Washington, Jan. 3, The long contested land claim between James H. Lane and Ghius Jenkins, involving the title to a val uable quarter section of land adjoining Lawrence, Kansas, has been finally decide! by the Commissioner of tbe Land Office, the Commissioner of Indian Affairs and the Sec retary of tbe Interior, unequivocally fn favor of General Lane. The merits of tbe case bave been exhausti bly presented on both sides by eminent le gal advisers, and inrolved the'original par ties in all personal conflict on the claim, re sulting in tha wounding of General Lane and the death of Galu Jenkins. The case has excited great Interest throughout legal circles, the various departments and the country at large. The decision vindicating General Lane in his right to the property was rendered on th last day of December. At tbe commencement of this year Gen eral Lane presented to tbe attorney of Mrs. Jackson th sum ef $1,600, as a free-will New-year's offering of kindness and sym pathy. Tbe opinion of Controller Whittlesey, ac quiesoed in by Secretary Chase, is that, ac cording to the present law regulating the compensation of member of Congress, they can receive mileage only for the regular ses sion; therefore, mileage for th July extra seaaiaa remains to be provided for by future regulations. It may be stated that several Senators were paid their mileage bajbre the opinion was officially furnished for ministe rial guidance. , t Assistant Beoretary of Treasury Earring ton has been .absent from the department for week or tea days past, on account of sickness. ' . , n,,,' It appears, by th report of the Superin tendent ef Publio Printing, John D. Defrees, that tbe Government Printing Bureau hag been conducted with the utmost efficiency and satisfaction. The wisdom of Congress in suppressing the former arrangements by the present establishment is fully vindicated as compared to th prices formerly paid publl printers. Thar has, during th past seren months, been asj actual saving to th Gov ernment of $60,000. ' - , . , j ' Rumored Loss of a British Transport with 1,100 Troops. . Halifax, January 3.

The London Timet of Monday, the ICth nit , In its obituary notice of Prince Albert, says: The Prince himself had for some days a melancholy conviction that his end was at band. The roennt death of his relative, tbe King of Portugal, from a similar disorder, is understood to bave bad an unfortunate in fluence npon him, and possibly nsjisted the progress of the malady. It is said that as early as Wednesday morning the Prince ex pressed his belief that he should not recover. Thursday no material change took p'ae in his condition, and cn Frid ty morning the Q'leen took a drive, having at that time no suspi cion of immediate danger. When, however, her Majesty returned to the Castle, the ex tremities of the patient were already old, so sudden had been the fresh acce?s nf the disorder. Tbe alarming bulletin of Friday was then published. From that time the state ot tbe PriDce was one of the greatest danger. On Fiiday evening it was thought probable that he would not survive the night, and tbe Prince of Wales, who had been telegraphed for to Cambridge, arrived at the Castle by special train about 3 o'clock on Satorday morning. All night the Prince continued very ill, but in tbe foreuoin of Saturday a change for the better took place. Unhappily, it was only the rally which bo often precedes dissolution; but it gave great hopes to the eminent physicians in attend ance, and was communicated to the public as soon as pofsib. The ray of hope was fated soon to be quenched. About four o'c'ock in the afternoon a relapse took place, and the Prince, who, from the time of his severe seizure on Friday, had been sustained by stimulants, began gradually to sink. It was half past four when the last bulletin was issued, announcing that the patient was ia a critical state. From that time there was no hope. When the improvement took place on Saturday, it was agreed by the medical men that, if the patient could be carried over one more night, bis life would in all probability be saved. But the sudden failure of vital power, which occurred in the afternoon, frustiated these hopes. Congestion of the lungs, tbe result of complete exhaustion, set in, tbe Prince's breathing became continually shorter and feebler, and be expired without pain at a few minutes before eleven o'clock. He was sensible, and knew the Queen to the last. The Duke of Cambridge and tbe fol lowing gentlemen connected with the Court were present: General Bruce, Sir Charles Pbipps, General Grey, General Bentinck, Lord Alfied Paget, Major Du Plat, General Seymour, Colonel Elphinstone, and the Dean of indsor. It must have cheered the last moments of the illustrious patient to see his wife and nearly all his children round his bed. [For the Daily Press.] The Soul. man, by its powers of tbonght and reason is dis tinguished from tbe body, and from plants, and trees, and brutes. And this soal is im mortal. Your body will die ; your wife aud children and all the dear objects around you will sink to tbe grave; your house will crumble down; the earth will grow old and decay, like a moth-eaten garment; the sun will go down to rise no more; and all the stars of heaven will be put out but the soul will live for ever. And do you ask the worth of a soul that will never die? Oh, coald you carry this question into heaven, you might receive an answer that would reach its mighty import God would tell yon that be preserres the world for the sake of souls; Christ would tell you that he laid down his life and poured out bis blood for the salvation of souls; and the redeemed saint would tell you to read tbe worth of bis soul in that "far more ex ceeding weight of glory" which he there erjoys. Ob, could you carry this question into hell, and ask in that dark world what a Boul is worth, jou would be answered in hopeless tears and killing groans.' Let not your own unhappy experience teach you in that world what you have lost A. L. F. [PUBLISHED BY REQUEST.] CAMP KING, December 29, 1861. Editor Press Sir. We beg leave, through tbe medium of your excellent journal, to make known to your Newport readers and our friends there a few facts regarding our regiment, the Twenty-third Kentucky, here tofore called the Tenth. We wish to state, for tbe information of the nubile, that we have, over and over, called the attention of our chief commanders to the wretched food we are supplied with, in the shape of bread made of the most inferior flour, and baked wretchedly; the meat also being very often tbe refuse of tbe market, or, to speak more proper, what the butcher has left after bis day's sale. Another grievance which we complain pf, Ind which we condemn in the most unequivocal terms, is the exclusiveness and partiality of some of our officers. Their conduct in this form is as mean as It is wretched, as miserable a it is impolitic; for, if persisted in, it will become a fruitful source of demoralization of the men. It is a notorious fact that there are instances of premiums being bestowed npon rowdyism. And let an ordinarily quiet man commit a like offense, and he is punished ins'anter. Such is th rule in our too truly character, ized speculating, -making regiment. W. A. [COMMUNICATED.] Take It Coolly. Can not you. who appear to be almost alone at this time in taking the question of a foreign war coolly, advise the hot heads of our press to "wait a little." Daily your ootemporaries come out with head-lines of extraordinary length, strength and vigor on "tha Attitude of tbe British Press," "War with England Inevitable," ko., quit forgetting that while we know that Mason and Slidell bave been give p, and, consequently, the chief complaint of the British press dismissed, th new has not yet reached the other side, and they ar stilt writing and talking, and acting nnder th impression produced by the publio dinners given to Captain Wilkes, the commendation bestowed upon his conduct and the resolu tions of Congress approving of Itis action in this matter that our Government has now condemned. Please tell those gvatlemen t "wait a little" to hold their hands and their tongues till the action of our Government is known in Greet Britain, and tbe way in which It is received by th Britiek Govern' ment be made known to us. Two or three weeks will give us this information! WAIT.
