The , latter occupied tbe first floor, and Dibble ( & Co. the basement and upjier floors. , Tbe origin of the the is not yet aaeer- j taiucd. The flames burned with the | greatest ftuy in the basement, where n | large quantity of spirits of turpentine , and rosin was stored. Koon after the tire A began several slight explosions occurred, j wliich weresupposeil to have been caused . by barrels of turpentine. The books be- ' longing to Messrs.

Indian summer Is a very plt-iw.ll t stylo of weather. I wish tlio Indians had tried their li-ih'lm at tlio res I of tho seasons, and given tin tliis sui-l of weather all tin-year round. Not lieing in the coal business, I coultl Htmiil it. The Indians aro entitled to general gratitude for inventing this Hecond edi tion of lutnmer, short an it It. Their meteorological ideas wero good, so far au they went—-about ten days. But. il must bo considered that their educa tional advantages were limited. They had no public schools, with pret ty Inula teachers ami an economical Board of Education. The pastimes were hunting the wild deer ami following the roe, anil lighting each other. Scalping people waa one of the most plmring diversions. Scalping la quite an interesting opera tion, except to the party operated upon, it consists of taking all Ihe hair oil tho top ofa ma u'a head and the skin with it. Italil-heatletl Americans arc sometimes supported to be descendant* ot the origi nal settlers, who wero settled hy the In tliaitrt. There were Indians at one time on Long Irtlaud. Fortunately they had re tired to their happy hunting grounds before I came here. They were not at all suited to this hemisphere. The nohle race has, however, much degenerated. On account of had whisky. I ilon't know what the Indians ever did for ihe cigar business, but the only public interest evinced in the red man is by the cigar store men, who areerect iug wooden monuments to the Indiana all over the city. Thus the memory ol the Indian is pre served in his native wood. I'l-ople who have studied (he abori gines in their native woods, say they prefer the Indians in wood lo tin-In dian- in the woods. There is one thing more to be said of the cigar tribe: they are always smoking the pipe of petu-e. Where the Indian came from before he lii st. landed in America, is it ques tion still open for Investigation, Rut so far the American people have been less concerned about tho Indian's coming than his going. The Indian cannot b'i put to any practical use. His complexion is not dark enough for politics. Nobody demands sull'ragc for the red man. Massachusetts never took the slightest interest in him, except to kick hitn out of the Common wealth and appropriate his lauded possessions. The South wouldn't light for him. The commercial ami manufacturing ■ interests of the country have been slightly benefited by bis taste for whis key. Otherwise, nothing can ever be made out of hint. The Indian, liko mosquitoes and pub lic lecturers, was no doubt created for some wise purpose. -»Mi-rsPAPEit IfEWS. The Cologne Gazette, gives the follow ing account of a singular incident which bos recently given rise to diplomatic correspondence between the Dutch and Prussian governniei.v.,, whe „ fk)untfHS ltylanilt, wife of the new ii„i c i. „,■„•<, terat Berlin, went to join her " ™ b , °',"i some days since, the Prussian custo,,.. oilicers, acting tinder -the regulations . made to prevent the importation of the • cattle disease, refused to allow her lttp , dog to pass the frontier without uuder . going the prescribed quarantine. In vuin did the Countess protest that though her favorite came from Holland, '. where the dreaded disease prevailed, it , had never been near any infected cattle; , the oilicers persisted in refusing, and . the poor animal was left to undergo its . probation. A diplomatic correspon dence was tho consequence, after which the dog was released from quarantine and restored to its mistress. Discoursing upon the general subject ' of employment for women, the Cincin -1 nati Commercial makes an observation ' which is calculated to arouse serious re> j (lection, as follows : "We do not hesl ' tate to say that nine-tenths of "the - wedded woe" in this country is due to 1 the fact that unportioned girls are com pcllcii by pressure of necessity to. accept ■ offers of marriage simply to secure '■ homes, and without consulting their 1 hearts in the dreadful business. This 1 ought not tn be. Woman should he wel •' coined to any profession or avo-atloit tv - life that her inclination or interest 1 prompts her to adopt. Not only this, " she should be educated to one or the ' other of them." 1 1 The lish commissioners, who were ap . pointed by the last Massachu-etts Leg islature to investigate the question ofre , stocking the Merrimack and Coiinectl - cut rivers with lish, have sent in their I report to Governor Andrew. The cori - elusion of their investigation la that in . order to restock the rivers with lish, 0 tishways must he built, the pollution of 0 the water by chemicals used in manu facturing prevented, salmon must be br.-d at the head of the rivers in New . Hampshire, aud the use of weirs and •- nets be forbidden in Coiineclicnt. Vari e ous methods of constructing tishways ■ are presented. c Kecretary Mcf'ulloch hat returned to - Washington from New York. His in ', terview with the moneyed men is said ■ to have been entirely satisfactory. The •s banks offered him, says n Washington c special, a temporary loan of Si 00,000,000, 't which he will probably accept. He eon. c templates funding $50,000,000 or $100, --d 000,000 certificates of Indebtedness; com •- pound interest notes, and the lirstseries ■ of 7-30's, which fall due nt xt July. a The Hamburg ship Ne\i ton, Captain rt Herring, from New York for Hamburg • came ashore at Nantucket Sunday night • aud went to pieces. All hands were lost. Ono man swam ashore, but died ' from exposure after walking half a mile along the beach. His life-preserver was • marked "Newton Hamburg." About .. 1,200 barrels of kerosene oil have been ' saved from the wreck. \ The Republican statesmen of Mexico „ are now said to be agreed in the opinion j that Juarez, whose Constitutional term ~ expired on November 13, shall continue l_ in office until another election can be held.
