On Monday, the 11th inst. this buildiiig creeled for (lie purpose of public dismission, Was opened 'for tlm first time, and a groat excitement was created in the city in conse quence of several speeches having been made upon tlio subject of the abolition of slavery. On Wednesday a large crowd as sembled in front of the llall.and broke or 00 panes of glass but done no other damage. Thursday tho excitement became general, and resulted in tho destruction of the build ing, the following account of which wo ex tract from the Philadelphia Inquirer of Fri day. Destruction of Pennsylvania Hall. The popular excitement growing out of the dedication of Pennsylvania Hall, and the attending circumstances, reached a fearful pitch throughout yesterday. Tho tumult of the previous night was the theme of all tnnmiRs: a thousand extravagant Btories were circulated, and the apprehension be came general, thatlhe night would not pass by, without a still more fearful and exciting scene. Durinir tho day, the Hall was ope!i, and.as wo hd ce, one or two lectures wore -delivered. At noon, from 100 to 200 per sons congregated in front of the building; and the number continued to increase and tho sensation become stronger, until to wards sundown, when thousands from eve ry section of the city and county, poured in dense masses towards the scene; and by 8 o'clock, there must have bqen a concourse of Ten Thousand porsons.of all classes,sex cs; ages and conditions. The Mayor, we 'arc told, made his appearance at an early 'hour', and closed the doors of tho Hall; not withstanding it was understood that a socie ty would meet there in the evening for ihe purpose of discussion. Wo need scarcely state that, as the crowd increased the ex citement waxed warmer. The first de monstrations of attack were made upon the windows, which were thrown at, from nu merous hands and from every direction. Tho movement was followed up by an attempt to force the doors, which at first did not succeed : the efforts, however, were soon redoubled! and an entrance effected. The next step was breaking the scats, gal leries and furniture in the interior. The 'fragments it is said, were hastily gathered together in the centre of the hali,and a toich applied. The gas pipes wore cut and fire communicated to the streams that issued forth. These are tho statements of the "hight; for with conflicting niniors in circula tion, it was impossible to discover any au thenticated account of the more deliberate preliminary steps. The aldrm of fire was speedily given, and the vast multitude rc ecoed the cry. Tho state house bell also rang out, and tho engines and fiiemcn pour: ed in with their apparatus, which they snefedilv nut in rcUdiness for action: , The crowd liv this timQ had swollen to an immense macnitudei and not only Sixth street from Arch to Race, presented a dense mass of human beings, but all tho streets and alloys adjacent, were thronged with caaoi and excited spectators. Tho alarm soon spread through the city a few hasty particulars passed from mouth to mouth; and tho apprehension was far greater among those who had not an opportunity of wit nessing the progrces of tjie flames, than the imuipdiato spectators of tho scenri. This was natural: the Hall being located in one of the most densely populated parts of our city, within a stone's throw of the Arch Street Theatre, and a number of frame buildings being in the immediate neighbor- norm, u was iuurcu inui, nu wauci nun well directed the affairs of the Bremen, nor how liberal the supply of water.they would not be able to bound the progress of the flames. Nay more, a conflict between the nnlicu and the crowd was apprehended; and hence, many an anxious mother, or suscep tiblo wife, dreaded lest tho liluht would no nass by, without the destruction of life as well as nroneitv. Soon after nine o'clock, the whole build ing was Wrapped in flames, which diffused gradually move subdued, as tin1 hour of midnight approached. Tho only accident that wc heard of, was one caused" by an en gine which, running over a fireman, frac tured ins leg. tie was earned on on a board by a nuinbor of citizens. Wo need scarcely add, that the condition of the resi dents in tho immediate neighborhood, and especially at the commencement of the oc currence, was alarming, and painful in the extreme. JLooti Out!! EPGOODS AT COST-Ol Tho New Hampsuiro Courier says, that James Baton, a gunsmith of Concord, N.II. has invented an important improvement in loading end discharg ing tho musket or tho rifle, with a rotary magazine capablo of containing powder, balls and caps sufll cicnt for twenty-four rounds, and it may bo loaded ,in ono minute, and give twenty four discharges in our minutes! Ono chamber is assigned for balls, ono for powder, and ono for cap3. It loads itself from tho magazine, and puts on tho caps, merely by turning the magazine half way round ; and its construction renders it perfectly safe, ns no ball ran bo lodged midway of tho rifle, nor can fire commu- nicato with tho magazine. Twenty-four pieces, in cluding every spring, screw and pin, complete this wonderful piece of machinery.

Every window vomited forth its volume, and tho roof cracked,, smoked and blazed before the progress of tho devouring element. It was a fearful scene, and yet wo riever witnessed so vast a' concourse so passive and so quiet, considering the circUm ccs of the case. The creat majority an peared to be merely spectators ; unwilling by any movement wnatevur, cuuer vo m crease the existing, or provoke further ex citement. Tho firemen wore perfectly self-possessed ; and took especial pains to hrotect and savo the surrounding property This was a task of great difficulty, but one in which, as. we believe, they proved fully successful Torrents of water descended nnd as fast aa the strength of one body of men rave way, their places were instantly Glippucu uy iiiiumcr. VVo saw several coloured persons in the ouskirts of tho crbwd! but as lar as our oI servation extended, no effort was made to molest them. We were told, however.that several were driven from tho ground. The fire raced furiously until all the woodwork of the building was destroyed- The roof fell in about ten o'clock; and as tho flames subsided, tne throng gradually dispersed At 11 oclocK, Pennsylvania Hall was mass of ruins, tho walls alone erect and standing, and the noise, busllo and confu Ion incident to such an occurrence; became mission into the Union as a State A bill granting the same authority to Flo- rtda has also been reported.

A WORD TO PAR 13 NTS. How often is youth cut down when least expect ed by the consumption, and followed to their grave? by parents who aro in a measure tho cauEo of their premature death, in neglecting to remedy colds when existing in childhood, looking upon them as trifling affections, arid not attracting their notice until tho destroyer has commenced it work and inado sure of its victim. This is not a fanciful representation for daily numerous instances occur which prove the fact. In manhood colds terminate in thesamo way, but do not progress so rapidly as in youth; they should however, in both youth and manhood, be curly at- tenden to. and not regarded as triflin ir affections, for it .is a delusive idea that has shortened the lives of thousands.
