Card to the Public. In justice to ourselves and the great reputation of the Harden Hand Grenade Fire Extinguisher, which by its merits it has won throughout the world, we wish to refute ehe erroneous impression caused by prejudiced parties, who have stated that an unsatisfactory test of the Harden Fire Grenade was given at last night's fire. We understand that a few grenades were thrown by an excited party when the fire was at its greatest Light, several of which did not touch the flames at all. Even if they had, no satisfactory result could have been ex pected, the fire having reached such a ter rific headway that it required the entire Fire Department's efforts to control it. The fire was first discovered by Mr. Mclnerny and his wife, who threw a small quantity of water without effect, could thus have been easily extinguished by the use of a few Harden Hand Grenades. This disastrous conflagration should be a warning for all parties to have a supply f grenades ready for instant use, when they will never fail to accomplish all we claim for them. Tery respectfully, Z. K. Meycks, Manager Cal. Produce and Provision Co. January 21, 1835. The Fire Yesterday. A curious crowd lingered all day yester day about the corner of Hotel and Fort streets gazing at the ruins, commenting up on the look of things and retailing facts and fancies about the occurence. The old building directly upon the corner that was destroyed was erected upon the site by one destroyed by fire in 1854 The former building was occupied by the late C. S. Bartow, and the one burned yesterday morning was occupied by Dr. Mott Smith, who owned the property, and afterwards by E. Stretz, as a drug store. The property adjoining the corner, on Fort street was owned by J. McColgan and that on Hotel street by Her Majesty Queen Emma. This is one of the most eligible sites in town for retail stores and it is to be hoped that a new and handsome block will be erected thereon Bhortly. The escape of Dodd'a stables and saloon on the other Bide of Fort street was due to the steady stream of water that, in spite of the fierce heat from the burning buildings was poured thereon. For the second time.Goo Kim the Chinese merchant, who occupies the building on the makai side of Hotel street escaped being burnt out by being in a fire-proof building. When Love's bakery was burned on Nuuanu street the fire-proof wall of Goo Kim's store ad joining stopped the fire in that direction. As it was, the iron shutters of the store in Hotel street were warped by yesterday's fire and some panes of glass behind them broken. A great number of glowing cinders were carried by the light breeze over the town as far as the water front, and it is a matter of congratulation that none of them fell on rubbish heaps or iguited the shingles of roofs on which they lodged. The low roof to the "Astor House" building adjoining Goo Kim's was covered with them but being wet down thoroughly no damage ensued. The fact that the fire was confined to the group of buildings in which it originated reflects great credit upon the promptness and efficiency of the Fire Department. Though the buildings were old, dry, and filled with inflammable material, the heat from which was intense, the fire was kept within boands and adjoining property saved. The contents of Fishel's dry goods store, P. Mclnerny's candy establishment, the Germania Market, and the Elite Ice Cream Parlors were almostall destroyed. Mr.Gert saved some of his boots and ehoes, and some furniture. Messrs. Simpson & Wa llace's plumbing stock was removed from the burning build ing which was only'partly consumed and their loss is only that sustained in removal. The fire i3 supposed to have originated in a tailoring room in the second story of the corner building. In the ruins Mr. Fishel's safe one of the "Hall" patent was found. It had evidently been subject ed to great heat as the iron plates outside were consid erably warped. It was taken out and upon the combination being given to Mr. Sam Nott the agent for these safes it was open ed without difficulty, and the books, papers, and valuables found unharmed by the heat. The following are the estimated losses, aha the amount, jf insurance in eac case : . C. J. Fiscbel, loss $36,000. Insurance $21, 000, distributed as follows: $3,000 S. British j and National, 54,000 City of Loudon, C. O. i Bcrger, Agent; $6,000 City of London. G.W. Macfarlane fc Co., Agents; $4,000 Tr&ns-At- . lantic and $4,060 X. German, H. Hackfeld & Co., Agents; I Mclnerny, loss $6,000, in surance on stock- $3,000, being $1,500 each in Trans Atlantic and N. German; Elite Ice Cream Saloon, partial lo-8, insurance on ; furniture, fixtures, and curios, $2,000, in Hamburg-Magdeburg Fire Insurance Co., A. Jaeger, Agent; l' Gertz, loss nominal, in- : surance $3,600. being $1,500 eacli in S. Brit ish and National and City of Loudon; Ger mania Market, loss $1,500; Srmpson & Wal lace, loss bji damage in removal, $500; J. ' McDonald damaged to the extent of $300. i There was no insurance on the last three named. J - Mlil f Governor Cleveland was recently pre sented with a gold-hooped five-gallon cask of rum, hnving a gold faucet, and bearing the following inscription in or namental letters upon its head : Cough lin's It. K. It. It did it. Copyrighted. Distillation of '60.'' The elegant cask ! was shipped to the Governor, enclosed in i a walnut case, which was elegantly lined j -with plush. The present was returned to the donor by express. New York, December 22d. The Cham- ber of Commerce to-day heard the report that the Senate and House of Representa tives promptly ratify the treaty and pass an enabling Act for putting the treaty in operation. The first minority report claims that the treaty is hostile to the in terests of the people of the United States, aud ought not to be confirmed. The San Bernardino Index describes a mammoth dam being constructed, con verting Bear Valley into a reservoir, at a cost of $50,000. Over 1,500 barrels of cement have already been used. The reservoir will cover about 2,000 acres, and the water on an average will be about twelve feet deep. A continuous stream of about 1,000 inches of water will be drawn from it during the dry season. The weather at the East was intensely cold during December. Mexico has sent a silver brick worth $200,000 to the World's Fair at New Or leans. While boring an artesian well on the Rosecrans track, near Los Angeles, the workmen discovered a deposit of couch shells. at a depth of 160 feet. People are wondering how the shells came there. The Los Angeles Water Company has completed the census of the city. The enumerator who has tho matter in hand says tho population probably exceeds 30,000. "The proposition to tax church property in Washington Territory was carried by 3,C61 majority. Fanama, December 19th. The power ful Aii;lo-Dutch Company have signed a contract for cutting 16,000,000 meters of the canal on the Culebra section, at a figure under eight francs per' meter. The work is to bo finished within two years. A large force of Europeans are ordered for the work. The Japanese Naval Department has decided to commence the construction of four new men-of-war at Yokosuka. Three million yen of paper currency is to be destroyed at the Japanese Gov ernment Printing Office during the week commencing with the 21st inst. Dancing in European style has become a fashion among Japanese ladies of high standing, and a society is under formation for studying the art, and a German is to be engaged as an instructor. A sugar company is supposed to be es tablished at Takamatsu, Iyo, with a capi tal of 300,000 yen, but its working capi tal is to be 100,000 yen, to be furnished by the Government against national bonds deposited by the company with the Government. The World's Fair. A New Orleans special says : The live 6tock buildings of the World's Fair are nearly completed. The $125,000 to be paid in premiums is expected to bring a good display of cattle and horses. The Women' (Department has little in it yet. The art building will not be ready before January. California makes the best dis play of any State. Two thousand boxes of Mexican exhibits were detained for two weeks at the Custam-honse, and the Mexican officials became indignant and threatened to return home. As Mexico has appropriated $250,000 for its display, the managers of the Exhibition became uneasy, and Secretary McCuiloch was in duced to modify the customs regulations, and the Mexicans are now getting their goods from the Custom-honse. Forecast of Cleveland Actions. The World, in a double-leaded editorial forecasting Cleveland's action under the civil service rules, declares evidently by authority that while he will drive from office every rascal, drone and mere par tisan, whom the pernicious Republican methods have fastened upon the public service, he wili make no clean sweep of mere petty subordinates on account of of Republicanism, provided they are capable, honest and experienced and har not been vile partisans. LOVE'S MEAN1NQ. 1 thought it meant all glad ecstatic things, Fond glance, and touch, and speech, quick blood and brain, And strong desire and sweet delicious pain, And beautyY thrall, and strange bewil derings, Twixt hope and fear like to the little stings The rose-thorn gives; and then the utter gain. With all my sorest striving to attain, Of the dear bliss long-sought possession gives. Now, with a sad, keen sight that reassures -My often sinking soul, with longing eyes Averted from the path that still allures, (Lest seeing that for which my sore heart sighs, I seek my own good at the cost of yours), I know at last that love means sacrifice.

Oh yes, my son, there are more dams in New England than there are in the presi dential campaign, a great many more. More or less. And they hold a great deal more, too more water, that is. Not quite so much whisky, oh no. Not by quart, I should say. 'OME HAGAIN. Returning pleased with his successful mis sion among the savages of Great Britain, Mr. Moody declares that "hif 'e were not han Hamerican, 'e would be appier to be han Henglishman rather than hany hother na tionality." 'Ear! ear! 'Ip, 'ip, 'urraht BARRED OUT. The grate question: Who shall build the fire? Also: Who shall be privileged to poke it, being kindled?

Some of the religious papers In Massa chusetts are discussing tne question: "Should a minister wear mustaches?" We think it is his duty to society to wear so much as that, at least, and in the great citie3 where sotiety is wore coldly artificial, and for mally exacting he might, with commend able wordly wisdom, add a vest and a pair of trousers, especially as the season ad vances. THE SERENADE. "I will stay," he sang, "and sing my lay. While slumber seals your eyes; And the deep still night will chase the day Away from the star-lit skies. I will wake and sing till the morning star Shall glow in the eastern sky w But he didn't?, the dog woke up just then And Emote him hip and thigh. HAVE ONE YOURSELF.

But most men find they can digest as well without it So, if you don't want to die jest yet, Alpheus, you leave whisky alone. THE TALONTED CAT. Mr. Bergh defends the intelligence ef the domestic cat, and says it can be trained to "fetch and carry" just like a dog. Mr. Bergh is correct. The cat will carry off the canary without any training, and if there Is any thing that will fetch a coop of young chickens quicker than a lean one-eyed cat, it hasn't yet been discovered. " EXCELSIOR." "Ethel" writes to ask if ws think high heels are injurious. We think they are, Ethie, very injurious and extremely danger ous; and when they are on a bay mule with zebra legs, they may be rated as extra haz ardous. Keep away from 'em, Ethel. HE DIES AT SUNRISE. The man who regularly and habitually closed the door after him, tight as wax, all summer, is now just beginning to leave it wide open every time he goes out and comes in. CASH TAKEN AT PAR. "And what of this present time!" cried the parson earnestly, smiting the pulpit "What of this time in which we live? What about the Now?" "Now," said the good editor suddenly aroused from his comfortable slumber, "now is the time to make up clubs " And then the deacons clubbed together and set him out LABOR AND REFRESHMENT. There is this difference between Esau and the president Esau sells himself for a mess of pottage and the president exselis himself on a pot of message. ROBEKT J. BURDETTE. Ardmorz. Pa., Sept 23.
