At IT o’clock seven persons had been recaptured by the special deputies lie bo rah Dibble was one of the old women in the idiot ward of the institution. All her life she has been an inveterate smoker and clung obstinately to an old clay pipe which wa* giveu to her aMout a year ago She was smoking away about 11 JU o'clock at night wheu the night keeper passed through the ward on a tour of inspection Everything was all right, and old Deborah Dibble was the only parson awake Half an hour later a thrill acream wa heard and a bright light shown out of Die windows of the ward in the right wiug Wheu the keepers reached the idiot ward they found old Lie horah Dibble lying on the bare floor wrapped in flames, while the other poor idiots ran to aud fro trying to escape the flame* which were licking the bed clothing and curling about the few bit* of furniture in the department. So fierce wa* the heat aud so rapidly had the fire, which was started by the embers of old Deborah Dibble's pipe, spread that the keeper* were compelled to retreat to save themselves A few of the idiots, (Nibbling ami jabbering ran with the keeper* who cried the alarm as they weut. All around were farm house* aud ine**eugers were sent for help. The lunatics were released from the different ward* a* soon aa poaeible. Altogether there were about twenty and it wa* feared that if they mingled with the more tractable patients there would be a general stampede The majority of the violent one*, however, made directly for the wood* and for hour* afterward they could lie bef in I screaming and yelling in the adjacent forest. Attention wa* given to the saving of life and the nurse* and keepers worked with a will to get the poor wretches out. lu their wild efforts to e*cape some of the patient* were liadly burned Thoae in the poor wants were all saved without trouble a* that portion of the building was fur thereat removed from the wing where the tire started. About 2 o'clock the building tw-gau to crumble and succumb to the fury of the fire It wa* an awful night for the nurse* and attendants They hardly knew what to do or which way to turn until finally some half a dozen of the good hearted farmers offered their houses and bams a* a plate of refuge for the imbeciles The door* of the two little chun he* were thrown wide open and temporary ho*pital quarter* arranged The keeper of the solitary hotel in t he town offered food aud shelter for those who were still unprovided.

The buildings occupied by the pauper and insane inmate* were both completely destroyed, only the foundation walls remaining. Three chimneys stood a* monument* in the midst of the scene The fire ••tarted in the north end of the larger building, occupied by Keeper Manwarring and the idiots and paupers over whom he had charge. The flame* broke out on the first fluor. So rapid wa* their progrean that when discovered it wa* impossible to enter the apartment* occupied by the female idiot*, eight of whom perished. The male inmates all escaped. There were about eighty inmates in the pauper and idiot departmeota, which were in the main building The insaue department was ins separate building to the south of the poor house and divided by a driveway. Itade&truc-tiou was aa complete aa that of the other There were forty-three inmates, aud aa soon as their keeper. William Hall, waa acquainted with their peril he opened the doors of the cella, allowing the inmates to cuter the hall* and thence make their escape to the open air Four or five of them took advantage of their liberty, and evading the vigilance of the w.w-her* aet over them, could uot be foiim when wanted The others with the pauper* were removed to the Methodist and Urn veraalist churches at Preston Corner*, where temporary quarters were provided for them The bell ou the building used to alarm the neighborhood when an inmate escaped was rung. and the people who heard it ra ■ponded quickly, until a bucket brigade, IU* st rung wa* formed, but the tire waa under such headway that nothing could be done, except to save the outbuildings.

I then ran out and gave the alarm, went to my room and pulled on my trousers and then ran through the corridors and aroused the paupers, tellieg them as plainly es I coaid what had happened In some instances the poor people were dazed, and it wa* necessary to carry them bodily from the house and turn them looae in the yard and fields 'I here were twelve inmates in tbs idiot asylum aud they must have been overcome by the heat I ie fore I awakened, for I heard uothiug from them, and they must have rested like pigs in a hole We have done the best we could for the poor unfortunates who were rem-tied, by quar teeing them in the churches, hotel end house* in the village, aud the good people are ministering to their wants ” COMMISSIONER BROWNS REPORT.
