Nothing could have burst More suddenly on the a expecting citizen than the fire which destroyed so Many valuable lives waisted property by millions Laid an arrest on the Many and varied forms of Industry and spread not Only desolation but terror and consternation All around. Public buildings palaces of Commerce temples of religion Banks palatial residences newspaper and Telegraph offices school houses almost everything of which the citizens of St. John Felt proud were All in a few hours Laid in ruin. The loss of our hotels churches schoolhouses Banks Etc., was made a thousand times More painful by the lamentable destruction of life accompanying it. The fire was discovered in a building owned by or. Fairweather on the South of York Point slip next to Mclaughlin a boiler shop. To the latter building the flames had spread before the firemen had reached the scene. The engines arrived and did their Best to Stop the flames but All efforts were in vain. Nothing could be done. The flames spread to the various buildings on Ilavee a wharf which were quickly consumed and the fire broke out with a Roar into Smith Street carrying everything before it. From there flames spread into Drury Lane and Mill Street following that into Dock Street taking both sides. Ere this however the rear of the London House and adjacent buildings had been attacked when it was seen that the fire would inevitably sweep along either Dock or Mill Street. Aid came from Portland in the shape of engines and firemen. The tinder boxes on fire aided by wind proved a combination too much for the Gallant workers and almost in despair they saw the flames Advance upon them not slowly but with a rapidity that appalled the stoutest hearts. The Carleton engine came in and Lent its Aid. The buildings were a mass of flames at the end of Smith Street and Drury Lane and while the workers were vainly endeavouring to have the fire end there a momentary Gale took the flames across Union Street to the opposite houses and in less than five minutes the buildings were doomed to destruction. Both sides of the Street were soon in the grasp of the devouring element and the men were obliged to drop their pipes and run up the Street after which they dragged the Hose after them. Another lot of men were working at the foot of Union Street and by placing boards in front of their faces managed to Battle with the flames until their clothing be came singed. Proceeding along Smith Street the fire reached Nelson Street then Robertson a place then to Robertson a what of and then up South wharf. As it gained Nelson Street on the South it met the flames coming up that Street and the combination i made a terrific heat that could not be borne. Westward Street was not capable of withstanding the intense heat and Sparks All the houses being of Wood they went Down As if felled by a Hurricane. Many of the occupants of stores were off helping their unfortunate brother merchants and some arrived just in time to save their books and others were just enabled to witness the destruction of All their Stock. Some of the embers lodged in the Steeple of Trinity Church with nothing to save it for the fire was so High As to be almost beyond reach and the flames were left to pursue their own Way. As the news spread that some wooden houses on Horsefield Aswell As others on Duke Street near Victoria hotel were on fire thousands were alarmed As it was soon seen that this fire was spreading North South East and West not an engine to be had and everything going Down before the unrelenting flames. A building on Charlotte Street had hardly become prey to the flames when the others on either Side followed. In half an hour All but the Germain Street Side of the Square was in ashes. The Victoria hotel guests As Well a employees began to make preparations for seeking new quarters. Very Little time was Given them to collect their valuables and in a majority of cases the inmates had to leave with scanty wardrobes. The buildings at the Comer of Dock and Union streets caught almost simultaneously. To say that the fire raged fiercely Here would but too faintly describe the terrible manner in which it kept on a needing the streams of water directed upon it. Dock Mill water Prince William Canterbury Princess King and Germain streets were next burned. The conflagration was stopped about North Street about 500 acres being burned Over and 15,Odo persons rendered homeless. The estimated loss is $15,-000,000 to $20,000,000 insurance about $5,000,000.

The remains of two persons burned beyond recognition Are in the dead House. In Smith Street at an Early stage of the fire a woman a horror stricken face appeared at an upper window with a child in her arms.

Govern killed by a falling Wall Thomas Holmes and James lamps drowned in attempting to save goods mrs. William Cohalan mrs. Lyons and mrs. Cassidy supposed to be burned in mrs. Lyons House Samuel Corbett and a youth named Fox. Many other deaths Are rumoured but it is difficult to ascertain the facts As it is hard to find even a Well known citizen who formerly resided in the Burnt District. The upper limit of the fire runs southeasterly entirely across the City. It begins at York Point slip crosses Mill Street to George Street follows George to Union Street and then runs up Union both sides of which were destroyed to the Corner of the Chipman property near the head of Germain Street. It skirts Market Square All sides of which were burned to King Street the Northern Side of which is destroyed half Way up to Germain. Thence the line of destruction continues up the South Side of King Street nearly across the City to Pitt Street then turning to the South runs along Pitt to St. James Street and through the latter direct to Courtenay Bay every building South and West of the tract above indicated is destroyed except the court House the Marine Hospital and one or two Sheds about the Barracks. Robbery was carried on by Many rascals in the boldest and most a blushing manner while others pursued their rascally work under the pretence of aiding to save goods. Some went around both with and without teams grabbed a anything they fancied boldly saying a fall rights when interfered with and marching off with their spoils if not prevented. Others were seen emptying packets and pilfering from drawers and trunks while appearing to be working earnestly to save goods but no arrests were made.

In military circles the outbreak is considered serious. The indians Are Brave and warlike and Well supplied with arms. The total strength at the disposal of Gen. Howard when All the troops placed under his orders Are concentrated will Only reach about 800, while the strength of the indians is estimated by some to be close on to 2,000, though probably More reliable estimates will reduce the number of warriors to about half that number or at the most to 1,500. The scene of War is located in Idaho territory sixty Miles from Lewiston on what is known As Camas Prairie. The distance from Lewiston to Wallula by River is Igo Miles which is the nearest Point where the Telegraph can be reached. The distance from Portland to the scene is Over too Miles. San Francisco Jane 20. A Portland press dispatch says the following special is just received by the oregonian mount Idaho june ig�?8 is sad news to night via the Florence from Salmon River. The killed so far As known Are Dick define Henry Elfers Robert Bland Henry Strowbridge Henry Mason c. H. Brown Jack Mannel Samuel Benedict James Baker Price Victor quid James Ould. Mortally wounded William George. No women or children killed on Salmon River Are yet reported. John Chamberlain and child were killed at the same time As Morton a wife and another child. Wounded l. Day George Moore mrs. Morton. The troops arrived Here to Day. The indians left this afternoon attempting to Cross Salmon River. They will probably go toward Willow Valley and commit depredations. They have a Large band of horses belonging to the people Here and will doubtless be pursued by the settlers. It is Josephus with the other renegades. Later june 17�?9 a. commanding officer at fort Lap Way col. Perry with his command and some volunteers engaged the indians at White Bird about Daylight they were fighting about three hours and were repulsed with heavy loss of men and horses. Later�?18th�?williams, who brought the letters to Lewiston says he was a scout in the fight that the engagement took place at the foot of White Bird Canon instead of the head that upon the first tire of the indians the soldiers broke ranks and rebated. The officers could not rally them and make them face the fire. The indians pursued them about sixteen Miles firing upon them constantly. He states that the indians had better guns than the troops and their aim was deadly from the first attack. There were about 125 indians in Pursuit of the troops All Well mounted. After the fight the indians held a grand War dance on the Prairie. Our informant says he is reliably informed that the indians did not fire a single building or destroy any property but cleaned the country of Stock which they have driven to the South Side of the Salmon River. They seem to Hope that they will ultimately be the undisturbed proprietors of All the property the Whites Are now compelled to abandon. They think not without reason that before the country is regained from them an army must be created and a Long and doubtful Campaign passed through. The indians have now their principal Camp and Headquarters on the Salmon River just below the Mouth of the Small Stream called Skookumchuck while the Stock is gathered and pastured on an extensive triangular shaped Region formed by the Snake and Salmon Rivers and the High Mountain Range lying about the sources of Fayette and Weyser Rivers. Here there is abundant pasturage for summer and Winter and Here they will doubtless make their final stand. In contradiction to the previous reports that the troops behaved badly our informant is assured by citizens who were in the fight that the troops though they allowed themselves to be decoded into ambush displayed throughout the action the utmost gallantry and fought like tigers. About Twenty five or thirty sol Diers were killed in about the same number of minutes. The situation in Northern Idaho far exceeds in Gravity any Indian outbreak of our Day and it would tax the Best resources of the government and of the people immediately interested to subdue the indians and restore peace to the country. The indians know the army on this coast is a Skeleton and the people helpless from Wran of arms. Indians in Idaho on the War path. San Francisco june 19.

After the arrival of col. Perry at it. Idaho a dispatch came through to the effect that he found the reports of those killed True and that the indians had gone to Salmon River.
