The Town of I.ltetitlelU, Illinois, N rail Demolished hy a Series of Disasters. An explosion resembling an earthquake and destroying nearly $1,000,(XX) worth of property occurred at Litchfield, Illinois, on the 21st The loss ~f one life and the Injury of a uum ber or people resulted from the catastrophe. Practically every structure in Litchfield wus wrecked, and score* of dwellings rendered uninhabitable. Panic reigned for hour* and details of the terrible affair were obtained xx Ith the utmost difficulty. About 3:15 a. m. an alarm of tire was turned In and upon Investigation It developed that the Litchfield Planet Mills, located in tbe southwest part of the city and said to be one of the largest, if not the larges’, single flour making establishments In the world, was In tlamcs Before the firemen arrived upon the scene the fire had gained sueb headway that for some time nothing could be done tocheck It and It seemed as If the enMie south part of the towu would be consumed. Tbe fire Is supposed to have originated by a spark from a passing locomotive fulling In "lie of the dust room*. The luxe ami hook and ladder companies hud hardly succeeded In gettlug their apparatus in working order when an explosion occurred, appalling iu vio lence, which was caused by the flames' sudden contact with pent-up mill dust. The explo sion shook the earth over a singularly wide area, while the atmospheric concussion was felt as far a* Decatur, n distance of fifty miles. The firemen battled with the flames for three long hours, finally subduing them to such sn extent that adjoining property was saved. The explosion broke large plate-glass windows lu a majority of stoic* In the • itv, prostrated almost every one on the street, shook house* li>o*c from their foundations, and jarred the machinery in the Litchfield t ar and Machine company to such an extent that bail to l>e suspended. The head millwright. Mr. John Carve, of Waterloo. lowa, in making an effort to save his tools In tbe burning building.was stunned by the explosion, siul endeavoring to cucupe, xv as pinned against the smoke-stack and burned to death. When found about three hours afterwards bis log* were burned off at the hips. The right nrtn anil left hand were entirely consumed ami tils body was burned to a perfect crisp. A large elevator, standing Immediately ac ross the Wabash track west of the mill, and containing some 250,004) bushel* of wheat, was quickly In flamos. and together with It* valuable contents burned to the ground. Ten or twelve cars of wheat 'landing on the house track were reduced lo ashes. A large pile of debris ten or fifteen feet high fell on the main track of the Wabash railroad, and n* a con sequence traffic on that road was badly Im paired. The Western I'nlon telegraph wires were also down, which makes matters a great deal worse. A number of serious but not necessary fatal accidents were reported. Tbe night watchman in the mill xvas hurl ed through a window and badly Injured. Window glass were broken ami chimneys blown down In towns ten miles distant. Nearly every house within u radius of two blocks of the mill was badly wrecked. All the plate glass In the stores on Main ami State streets were blown out. BOMB THROWERS IN ROME. I’erslstnnt Attempts to llloxv t.'p .Some one In the Holy City. Six bombs were throw n in Rome on the Jl*t. General alarm Is felt. No arrests have been made. A short time after the explosion Monday night of a bomb ut the M&rigtiolll palace. In the suburbs of Rome, another outrage wa* at tempted In the city, being the second of the kind within the city proper In less than a week. The first occurred on Friday last at the Anclnl Mattel palace, the residence of Hon. William Potter, the United .State* minister. The last outrage wa- perpetrated at the resi dence of tbe Marquis Saechetll, grand mar shal of the papal court, and has caused a feel ing of great anxiety In Vatican circles. In \ lew of the fact that the efforts of the dyna miter* *eem. in a measure, to be directed against the attaches of the pope’s court. The bomb which exploded Monday night had been placed within the entrsuce of the Marquis Saechettl's residence, and the noise of the explosion wu* heard a great distauee. Fortunately the only material damage done wa* the smashing of many window* in th-- palace, though the walls In some place* bore evidences of the explosion. This affair ha* caused the police to be more than usually vigilant. During the nlglii. another bond) xx a* found on tbe riairraac In the Via Dulle (Juntro Fon tanc. A lighted fuse was attach ed to the bomb, and It was discovered In time to pre vent the explosion that In all probability would have resulted seriously to tbe building and Its occupants The police have no clue to tbe authors of the outrage, though tbrv tirtnly believe they are anarchists w ho are try ing to intimidate the uuthorltie* and tbu* pre vent the punishment of a number of their friend* who xvere recently arrested. This theory I* not generally accepted, however a ■ the outrages have been directed us much against the Vatican officer* a* against the government. Every possible effort Is being made to detect tbe guilty parties and prevent a repetition of the outrage Herr Most Referming.

My mil lion Is to Investigate the whole question of annexation, to determine the sentiment of the foreigners a* well a* of the natives, and to conclude a* far as possible from the facts whether It would be advantageous to this country to annex the Islands.

CTOPPEH RIVETED jßotto/vTPAniJ CVEkv' f>AiGUARANTEED. : ADDRESS: SAN FRANCISCO, CAL. A CRIMINAL LONG DEAD. HE IS NOW MADE A HERO BY ENGLISH ROMANCERS. HU I.lfoOno Tong Rfrord of Crafty, Cow ardly nml Squalid Crlmai—Unused at Tyburn Hill In 17«S— Nefarious Career. A hundred and sixty-seven ycai’R have elapsed since Jonathan Wild was hangod at Tyburn, and the chief incidents in his nefarious career havo been carefully transmitted from gen eration to generation in tile succes sive “Malefactors’ Registers,’” “New gate Calendars.” “Criminal Record ers” and “Chronicles of Crime,’’which ingenious bucks have compiled from those terrible trustworthy authori ties. the Old Hailey sessions papers. Jonathan Wild, indeed, seems to have been throughout his life an in carnation of rascality, duplicity and knavery of every kind. He was born at Wolverhampton late in the reign of Charles II., of decent parents, who gave him a plain education and ap prenticed him to a buekle-makor at Hirmingham. When quite a young journeyman he murriod, and after tlio birth of u son ho deserted his wife and child and came to London. Ho worked for a while at his trade, but dissolute hubits got him into debt in Wood-street Compter, whero ho no doubt umused his enforced idleness by devising schemes for swindling tlio public when he should regain his liberty. In tho compter, too, he formed the acquaintance of a notorious fomalo pickpockot named Mary Milincr, who liatl been within nn aco of hanging half a score of limes, but had man aged at last to get arrested for debt. By some moans cr another both Jonathan and Milincr obtained their freedom ami opened a littlo public houso in Cripplogato. As tho lady pickpocket was on terms of intimate acquaintance with most of the dis tinguished thieves in tho metropolis, she proved a valuable assistant to Mr. Wild, whoso tavern became n popular resort for felons. There was no law at tho period for tho punishment of the receivers of stolen goods, ami Jonathan drove for a considerable time a roaring trade as a “fence.” His practices, however, were considerably interrupted by tlie passing of an act of parliament in dicting fourteen years* transportation on all persons convicted of receiving goods knowing them to be stolon. Tlie unahnshed Mr. Wild then pro ceeded to call n meeting of the most notorious robbers in London, and, after pointing out to them that if they took their booty to unscrupulous pawnbrokers they would not receive more than a fourth part of tho value of tlie goods, ho proposed that they should bring all their plunder to him. and he would negotiate for restoring it to tho owners, receiving a reward for doing so. which roward ho would divide with his predatory friends. Tlie plan met with the approbation of tho thieves, and for some years Wild carried on tho business with brilliant success. Ho bad positively tlie assuranco to open an office in the Old Hailey for negotiating with per sons who had boon robbed, and, to onhanco his assumption of respecta bility, he acted ns assistant to Charles Hitchon, tho city marshal, who was almost as great a rogue as liis subordinate. This worthy couple used to parade tlie streets from Temple Bar to the Minories, searching disorderly housos and apprehending suspected persons, and at the same time extorting large bribes from those who justly feared to be brought in contact with tho law. Tho two rascals, however, foil out, and eucli pursued his own villainous way. Hitehcn had a turn for litera ture. and attacked Wild in a pam phlet railed “Tlie Regulator; or The Discovery of Thieves and Thief-Tak ers,” which drew a vehement reply from Wild.

Wild, paradoxical as it muy appear did render somo paltry kind of sorvice to tho stato; but it is operations as a receiver of stolon goods had made him a public nuisance, and in 1718 un act was passed declaring every person guilty of u capital offense who should accept a reward in consideration of restor ing stolen effects without prosecut ing tho thief. This, it might bo thought, would havo sufficed to an nihilato Jonathan’s business, but, by consummate dcxtority.ho contrived to ovado the law and proceeded as before with such success that ho was able to open a branch office, which was con ducted by his man Abraham. He hud agents abroad, to whom he trans mitted watches and jewelry, and he actually chartered a couple of sloops which plied between tho Thames and Rotterdam laden with plunder which lie had received. At length, through n quarrel with an accomplice, Wild was arrosted, and, after a lengthy trial, ho was found guilty und sentenced to death. He was at tho time in wretchod health, and attributed his illness to several fractures of tho skull which lie hud received while arresting criminals, and to his throat having been cut by a notorious ruffian named “Bluoskin.” To the last ho indulged in hopes of obtaining tho royal morcy, and bragged of tho dukes, marquises and carls to whom ho had rendered ser vices; but on May 2-1, 1725, Jonathan Wild, “Tho Groat,” as Fielding iron ically calls him, was taken in a cart from Newgate to Tyburn and hangod. Ho hud drunk u large quantity of laudanum on tho night preceding his execution, and was in a half-stupcflod state when ho was cast off tho laddor. A meaner, moro sordid and moro ignoble rascal it is difficult to con ceive. His life was one long tissue of crafty, cowardly, squalid crimes, yot. thanks to the genius of tho author of “Tom Jones” and the dramatic power of Harrison Ainsworth, tho memory of Jonathan Wild still lives.
