Mr. C. D. Nash, thu principal menibur of the company to whom the Nowhall house be- longed, made the following statement to a re- porter: two years ago a gentleman m passing by the elevator shaft saw a blaze starting up near the basement. Ho q uickly extinguished it, when it was discovered that tho plastering about the outside shaft Jiad been pricked off and a large quantity of paper stuffed in in such a manner that thu current of air up the shaft would draw the lire np and quickly envelope tho house in flames. 1 have a quantity of this paper, partially burned, still in my possession. I then had tho shaft boarded np tight, ao that if any fnrthur attempto woro niado tho would have to cut through solid woodwork. A few wooks later some plumbers engaged about the premises discovered a large pule of staves of alard-barrel piled in between the basement ceiling and lirat floor, iu snch a way as to avoid detection, and furnishing conclusive evidence that they had been so placed with view to firing the building. We had our suspicions then, but while thoroughly con- vinced so far as we wore con- oornud individually, yot tho proof was lacking and tbo matter was finally dropped, and I would not now care to namo the person who was suspected. He a, not now, nor has not boon for a year past, in the state. Tho trouble always waa to divino his motive.

Grace rise np aud answer. Mr. Tildan who sot up as boas in opposition to Kolly, has become simply a nodding automaton in politics; Robinson has sunk out of sight in the southern tier, and his name-is never heard. In 1880 John Kolly took William R. Grace iu band, and, in face of opposition such as no candidate for mayor has experienced hi thia city for many years, elected him. To bu sure, the majority waa small, bnt, like -Mercutio's' wound, 'it was enough.' Tbat demonstrated his power. The 'interests' and 'sentiment' Mr. Edson is said to have defied ycsterdav hi 1SSO turned against Kelly and voted for Kelly had not only lo encounter this, but tho bigotry of religious i-ooplo, who wore told that "John Kelly's ilonian Catholic candidate would destroy the public school system, and end by inviting the popo to sot up bis court in Niw York.' Hut against fljl this John Kolly prevailed. He elected hia candidate and demonstrated his popularity in this city in a way tbat no man of HUUSO could deny. Mr. Grace thought ho could cut loose from Kelly when ho got into tho mayor's chair and appeal to the people. What waa tbo result? Hu waa not even mentioned for ruuomiuation though he achemed for it and worked for it night and day. He waa qniotly but firmly put aside, and he haa strut- ted bis brief hour. Tlio true rulers of this citv had no fnrthur use for him. Mr. being a 'JetTersoniau proposed to recognize the sovereign people of this city.
