Nov. 10�? 12 the District covered by the fire May be said to include Tho largest part of that improvement of Boston which broken through into that Street itself. In Broad Street Kilby Street and nearer Tho water Are Largo stores containing stocks of Iron and imported goods but the fire has not yet rebuked them. Old residents of Boston who have not been Here for five years. Should understand that the whole of fort Hill has recently been dug Down and carried away and in its place is now a level Plain not covered with baud Uitti. Tho crowded pauper population which. 111 lately filled every tenement on fort Hill has Buen removed to other and at present a of or Homes. Tho swarms of Tho poor which till recently crowded Tho collars of Broad Street have nearly All Given room to Uio growth of Trade and that Street is no longer to to regarded a one of the lairs of this degraded population to these two facts in it due that so r w people Are loft horseless by this disaster. Not Moro than five Hundred Atn Lush have been a housed. The real sufferers Are the most Active business men of Boston. They represent mainly that younger class of merchants and to whom in Tho last fifteen years the City owes its remarkable development development which though not perhaps so noticeable to outsiders has been a marked for f urn of Boston growth. Those men oot Uoung of thu immense advantages which the oily had for Trade had availed themselves of Largo to Bourc a to con Truot a by atm of warehouses which had no Superior in this country perhaps none abroad and to open new Streete which should answer their needs. The old byways in the More Northern part of the City had become crowded and inadequate. They looked with Pride upon Pearl Street. Franklin Street now Devonshire Street and summer Street As in Mimmy thoroughfares nowhere excelled. Every now year the development of Tho manufactures and Commerce of Trio country and of Belr own City had shown that they Billt on no false Hopes in constructing Mioli solid and expensive storehouses. Of this City Moro than any other in this country it in True that the different branches of Industry liked to remain together and work Side by slue. To speak of a Boston Man of milk Street and Franklin Street was to Call to mind Tho Large who Ronalo and jobbing establishments of Tho dry goods manufacturers of now England. Pearl Street and High Street were to him the centers of Tho Boot and shoe industries of now England summer Street was that of the latest advances of Domestic dry goods. Those streets wore occupied almost distinctively for these respective purposes. The Nounda Ukel or the Fixie. To strangers the consolidation of those different interests cannot to better explained than by saying that hero in the Region bounded on the water Side two thirds of a mile on Washington a treat nearly half a mile and on the Northern Side and Southern aide nearly half a mile each Lay tha vary richest part of Boston. It was perhaps the wealthiest motion in the country. In thin do strict there were few dwelling houses no hotel of importance no theater no Church except Trinity and the old South Church Ali lab Baa As yet escaped to Flamma. Tho Cathedral Block which is destroyed was a magnificent collection of warehouses the site wan formerly occupied by the roman Catholic Cathedral Tho ground having Ceu purchased a few years ago Tor # 21 a Square foot. No Banks have been destroyed except the Revere North America and Continental. The North Bank and the Bank of Mutual redemption wore in peril but have not yet suffered. It is rumoured that the old South Church is destroyed but i have no reliable information of Trio fact at this moment. The name of Ilio Church indicates a period when Boston wan of aimed wholly to what i a now known As the North end when Oliie Church the third built in Boston was regarded As the most southerly of the three. Ii was established about Trio year 11 00. The present Edl Loo was erected in the Early part of the Lait Century. With the Advance of to growth of Boston the old South go Troh Long found itself in Tho Northern part of the City and it la a melancholy reminder of to origin of its name if it be spared to Day that it is to t the Southern Point of that part of old Boston which remain in. Opposite the old South Church in Colfax a Morton. of the Colnul Mittl Oommen Roll. Two words dropped by Tho Wayside in senator Morton s tour through Illinois made me curious to witness a Colfax Timo stration. Ono was that Tho republicans of Northern Indiana had not become reconciled to or. Colfax s defeat at Philadelphia and Tho other pointed to a possible diversion in favor of that gentleman for the position of United states senator. In the language of my latter informant " there s a Good Deal of a a round swell for Colfax in place of Morton in Northern Indiana and it would Trio commercial to Demi you to said to would write and toll you so but i imagine the senatorial question in All its bearings is a Little bettor defined from your Point of observation than it is near by. The Valient searcher after tangled webs of what in known As political imbroglio does not need to stray from the capital to find them. The one in Point is of Peculiar interest borrowing an analogy from Trio canine race a which poor human nature so much resembles the senator Alp is Morton s Bone and to moans to hold fast to it.

A the sum total is that neither of Tho factors we Are considering can be relied of to sustain Grant or if you please Tho Republican party unless the next administration is better than the last one unless Gen.

The legislature according to the Moat Liberal estimate will stand about a s follows Senate republicans 18 Democrat 18 liberals t. House a republicans 88 democrats Ca kinds Fendeis t undetermined a a insect Samson. In proportion to its size the strength of the Beetle in enormous. A Well known entomologist gives an instance of it Power. He lays " this insect has just astonished me by its vast strength of body. Every one who has taken the common Beetle in his hands knows that its limbs if not remarkable for agility Are very powerful but i wag not prepared for so simeonian a feat As that i have just witnessed. When the insect was brought to me having no Box immediately at hand i was at a loss where to put it till i could kill it but a quart bottle full of milk being on the table i placed the Beetle for the present under that the hollow in the Bottom allowing him room to stand upright. Presently to my Surprise the bottle began to move slowly and Glide along the smooth table impelled by the muscular Power of the imprisoned insect and continued to per ambulate the surface to the astonishment of All who witnessed it. The weight of the bottle and Ita contents could not have been less than three and a half pounds while that of the Beetle was about half an ounce to that it really moved a weight one Hundred and twelve times its own. A better notion than figures can convey will be obtained of this fact by supposing a lad of fifteen to be imprisoned under the Bell of St. Paul s which weighs twelve thousand pounds and to move it to and fro upon a smooth pavement by pushing Tai Money spent on cab fare in London re a pm $ 50,000 Day. In made necessary by the recent development of the Commerce of the City. The streets which have been thus far destroyed include All the new Streete devoted to Tho wholesale and jobbing dry goods Trade the Boot and shoe Trade and most of those devoted to to Wool business. With a few exceptions the warehouses destroyed Are those occupied by jobbers and wholesale dealers there being scarcely a retail store in Tho at present Burnt District and very few dwelling House. None of the latter indeed except some tenement Homos near the waterline at the Eastern end of Sumner Street and in the neighbourhood of the old Colony station persons who have not lived Here for some years will remember summer Stra a t. Arch Street High Street Franklin Street and Pearl Street As occupied by the residences of some of the Best citizens of Boston. They contained at one time some of the Moat elegant mansions in the world. The recent Advance in the business of Boston and in particular its development since the War has rendered it necessary for the shoe Trade the dry goods Trade and Tho Wool Trade to overstep the Bounds to which they were formerly confined and to establish themselves on these streets once the favorite dwelling places of the citizens. It is but six year since Sumner Street waa changed from a Street of quiet Home to one of the most Active wholesale business streets. As late As 188b, gov. Everett Rev. Or. Frothingham and other gentlemen of quiet literary tastes resided in summer Street but for the past two or three years there bae not been a single dwelling House in that Street. It Hae been wholly rebuilt with the most substantial r a Nito Ware uses. Trinity Church a till stood in summer it., but arrangements had been made for its reconstruction in another put of town. The destruction of Pearl and High Street has wiped out the largest Boot and shoe Mart in the world for this Industry in ibis country was entered there. A very Large part of the leather Trade of the Trade in thoe Flo Dlf a and other trades connected with the Boot and shoe Trade also found their Center in the same locality. The great establishments of the new England Cotton and Woolen manufacturers Are All swept away. Within a few Yean new Devonshire Street Wae Laid out through the District burned and Thia thoroughfare seems to be the very Center of the Periphery of the fire. The Noble warehouses on both aides of it. As Well As those in Otis Street and Winthrop place have Peru Wea. The principal Wool warehouses. Were on Congress and Federal streets. And part of these Streete is also in ruin. At Thia moment it would seem that the fire has been cheeked of the Eastern Side of Washington Street and. Although it a consumed the rear of some of the web onto on that Street h do not the time the revolution was the province Houtho which wan nod by the English governors As their residence of state. When the English army took Possession of Boston finding in Tho Winter no other building Large Eno Tiili for the training of cavalry they seized the old South Usu Rob and used it As a Riding school. Tolx insult to the people wait one of the moot bitter inflicted by that army upon the Solo ainu. The congregation own a great Deal of real estate in the neighbourhood and. Like that of the Trinity Tharah of new Tork Are very wealthy. They maintain other Clibur cob throughout the City and were contemplating Tho erection of a very Fine Church in to Region known an Back Bay. As a landmark of the old times Boie is no building in Boston the loss of Bieh would be Moro regretted by Itu older citizens. Fila noun h Iii tii i i. Ask. Immediately Opp Quito Tho old South Church was a building in the rear of the n a Tortat Ofilio which was built on the scone of the birth Placo of Benjamin Franklin. From Thiu Bodiho it is known that he was carried on the Day of bin birth to be baptized in the old Soulli Church. Recent visitors to Boston will recollect that there was an inscription on the Granite warehouse erected Trio to to show that it was to spot whore Franklin was bom. Tha now Postoff co which has Boon so far a Barrier to the flames on the North is a magnificent Structure of Granite and Iron the Corner Tuono of which was Laid Little More than a year ago. A considerable part of the ground burned Over Oast of this building had Tho Antiquaries say been gradually reclaimed from the water but this was done Long before the present generation was born. From an intimate acquaintance with the commercial interests of the City i am Able to state that Tho fall Trade in dry goods was considered successful and that the different houses had probably reduced their stocks of Domestic goods to As Low a Point As at any period m the year. It a not yet time for Tho stocks of the Spring Trade to accumulate. These warehouses were the Point of delivery for the great manufacturing establishments of All parts of new England and they held goods in very Large quantities at the place of manufacture to be drawn upon in Case of but children of larger growth and Are just a fond of tearing Down idols an they Are of building them up the higher indeed they lift a Man up the More diversion there is in toppling him Over for eleven yearn senator Morton has been the ruling spirit in Indiana if not a Power in Tho land and the men who have made him Are beginning to question his authority.

The Stock of Wool was probably at its very largest As dealers had held Wool lately for a Rise. The recent difficulty in transportation caused by the horse distemper had in Many instances prevented Trio delivery of Wool although it was absolutely needed in the establishments and larger quantities of goods than have Ever accumulated before Are now in store from the same cause at the Railroad depots which so far have escaped destruction. The Boston train script office a very Fine Structure recently constructed has been partially destroyed. The office of Tho 1 Ost is in danger but at this writing it is believed to to Safe. Tho 1 Ilot a roman Catholic paper having the largest circulation of any paper of that denomination in the country was engulfed As also the establishment of Donahue the Well known publisher of Catholic books.

Should the wind change or control of to flames be lost to next Section to go will be state Street in which Are almost All the Banks and insurance offices. There is not the least danger to the residence portion of the City As yet apprehended but if the wind veers to the East come from the sea they will fall beneath the flames. Mansah11 hoofs. That the solid structures of Iron and Stone which fill the Burnt District should have been so easily consumed is attrib Rod Here to the per Liscious fashion of i it had Toft the _ _ _ Slippery ground than it occupied four years ago. We shall state some of Ilia reasons for this belief. Four years ago Tho administration came into office with the enthusiastic support of Trio Republican party. There was neither discord nor a Liisia in its ranks or in its thoughts. There were no people or very few voting for Grant under protest. The Republican party had reasons to present Why it should be continued in Power. The work of reconstruction was not a wished Tho fifteenth amendment was not yet adopted the South was still in the morose condition which Andrew Johnson had engendered or encouraged. There were no glaring errors or corruptions in Public administration which the party held itself accountable for. Sine it had taken open Issue with Andrew Johnson and denounced him As a traitor. Although the Public service was essentially Rotten and was so stigmatized in party plate its could it third that the War Wun led tax plundered debt covered half bankrupt Soulli Bould to oho Rod with a Woll i Nundo Hope of Lio Sustor Rule Mill brighter any ii. " it did seem to us hut the time had Homo for a National reconciliation whereby the deut lies of the South should to confided to Trio better portion of her people of both Raccus and the Muster Dpi Ruth of Niichi travesties of Republican Rule us South Carolina and Arkan has to Milo to fool the frown of Fedora authority and either Reform their Wuyu or relinquish this or Abimail Power. And it seemed to us that Hueh Norm our As i Lynn Tater to Ilion d74, a 00, ought at least lobe explained before Power is resumed to to hand Wielt wielded it lion that Groat fraud was Gnu Schued and to men detected. " but the pc Pla have decided otherwise and we Bow to their decision. The wealth of the country and especially the incorporated. Wealth milled to the support of Glen. Kraut and poured out us Millious in bin behalf. It did not generally deny that ills civil career had Boon faulty. It merely imitated that bin oui Potito h Bud been and would be Moro to. Then our manufacture a Bank Cru etc., were nearly All making Money they deprecated any change whatever and especially a change which they poured might prove Radical and form of 1868the responsibility a a condition was shifted to other Ghoul Dors for the Timo being and while open trades were going on Between Republican senators on the one Side and Johnson and Hiu Cabinet officers on the other for appointments and confirmations whereby some of the worst specimens of Revenue officers that Over disgraced a civilized nation were fastened upon the Treasury some of whom Wero afterwards sent to Tho Penitentiary and Moro of Thorn deserved to to. None of the scandal seemed to attach to the Republican party. There never was a cleaner record to All outward appearance than that which Tho party exhibited in now Gen. Grant s Large majority consists of two main factors Viz 1, republicans who stood by Tho party from Force of habit 2, republicans and democrats who disliked Greeley More than they disliked Grant. In what numerical proportion these two elements stand toward each other is immaterial. It will hardly be disputed that Tho two worked Side by Side and contributed to produce the result of last tuesday. We think that neither of them singly could have carried the election while both of them together have carried it overwhelmingly. The question for present consideration is Bow far the two factors Are Likely to stand in unison hereafter. The More important of the two of course is the one which consists of those who stood by the party from Force of habit. Habit is a Strong thing to be sure yet it is not the strongest thing in the world. The habit of a. A a a. A a _. A r a a a a the Frait and combustible a Frasard roof which serves to carry the flame from building to building. A How device. A German Soldier received a private letter being unable to read it he took it to his sergeant and requested him to read it to him. He began to do so at once but Asho proceeded the Soldier became very uncomfortable at bearing details of a very private nature and so alarmed was he at what might follow yet desiring to know that he clapped his bands Over the sergeant s ears and held them there so tightly that the Man could not head 1 his own voice and the Soldier in his supreme ignorance imagined i secret to b a quite Safe. Voting the democratic ticket was found m the year i860, to be less potent than the growing popular Abhorrence of slavery. It was found in the recent election to be less potent among a Large and respectable body of republicans than their desire to see certain seeded reforms introduced into the conduct of Public affairs. It will be less potent from year to year As we Drift farther and farther away from the issues which made the Republican party a National necessity. Those upon whom the habit is Strong Sra passing away by death. Those upon whom it is weak or among whom it does not exist Are taking their p Mie Bec Ondov Tor based upon Mere opposition to or. Greeley is hardly Worth discussing with his defeat it disappears As an element of Republican strength and May turn up anywhere in the future. A portion of it was purchasable but a purchasable vote is a delusion and a snare an unmitigated Nuis Hoko Lilios in India. Or. Fairer h table of deaths from Snake bite in the presidency of Bengal including Orisa and Assam in Tho 1 Unju and judo in the Central provinces and in Burmah during the year 1809, furnishes u statistical Bugais Lor estimating the destruction of life duo to this extensive plague of India. Tho grand total of deaths among a population of 120,972,203 was no less than 11,410, or about four in every 10,000. Even these figures can hardly be accepted As representing the total mortality to be hot Down to Tho score of this terrible plague. Were the returns accurately and exhaustively made from All Hindustan it a probable that upward of 20,000 persons would be found to die annually in India from Snake bite alone. The local distribution of these victims with their sex age etc., together with the proportion of deaths due to ouch kind of Snake who be found clearly set Forth in or. Fuhrer s figures. No less than 2,690 fell to the Fang of the cobra 350 to the Krait and 830 to other known bikes in 6,922 cases the origin of the bite not having been traced. Upon this treatment of Snake bite the author goes carefully into the pathology and modes of euro derived from native usage As Well As from the experience and observation of europeans. In Bis opinion confirmed As it is by careful Experiment in the Case of a True bite when a healthy and vigorous cobra Ham Dryad Bun Garus or Aboia has imbedded its fangs and inn ovulated the Poison Little Chance if any of saving Fife exists unless the most prompt and vigorous Aid be Given. Even then the resources of medical skill Are but limited and of Uncertain Efficacy. _ the bite May in Many a Case be inflicted without the venom being injected. Thus seems to be explained the supposed immunity of the Mongoose. In or. Fairer s Experiment the Mongoose after an affray with a fresh and Vaucious cobra though bleeding from Many a wound showed no signs of poisoning. The cobra waa then made to close Ita jaws firmly upon the Mongoose s thigh in a few minutes the Mongoose Lay dead. The previous wounds had been Mere scratches without injection of venom. Something May still be done by Quick excision or ligature or even by the use of stimulants and counteracting agencies. What our author holds to be the most practical remedy of All is the extirpation of these pests by a judicious and Liberal system of rewards on a scale adjusted to the comparative deadlines of each Snake assisted by the knowledge of their character which May be Ditt Usea by books like his.
