They afterwards pioceeded to the. - of Mr. T RACY, anotheiLprominent rail-. ' G man, and fired several bullets in at the, } bus, and threw brick-bats and other mis-j • M;t other houses.

Terrible Fire in l s lii!iiloS|!i:#.. Store,, and Dwellings Destroyed—One ■ i man Killed mid another mortally Slab —Estimated Loss more than a .Million oj ! ■ hollars. Ust night, about 12 o'clock, a fire broke out in . 'northern end of the large rag and paper ware- Messrs. Ji'suip am! Moore, on the south | Fa-t North street, below Sixth. The wind | 'wii g ireshly from the Northeast at the time, j tlrtiries weie carried through with learlu! ra y the other extremity of the store, on Com- | .. j '' street.

The i ; '••! were , wn it," service, but it was speedily! -"t Mat all the buildings West ol tlie paper I ( "bxtit street, and South Jo Market street.) *"■ ' ,v °ld :ti destruction. The State House j • bell was immediately struck for a general alarm, and j its constant strokes brought to the ground the entire tire department of the city. The worst fears w ere soon realized. The buildings on the South side of Kast North street, and upon both sides of Commerce street, were soon in a light blaze, the Market rtreet Stores extended back to the last named street, and the tlames were soon pouring out of the window- on to that avenue and threaten ing to extend to Che-nut -tieet. By "2 o'clock, the Western end ol the block bounded by Market, North and Sixth streets, was in flames, and the wind had carried the burning Bakes into th block immediately West of the main body of the conflagration. Back of the Western side of Sixth street, a large sehool bou-e belonging to the Society of Friends, a carpen ter shop, and several small dwellings, were in flames and burning furiously. The roofs of two large stores on the lower side of Market street, below Sixth took fire, and the roofs of two buildings on the west side of Sixth street lie low Market, were in flames by half pa-t;> o'clock. The scene was now most frightful—the flames shot up high into the air, illuminating the entire city, and threatening to destro'' entire blocks to the wind ward. Commerce and North streets were in flames, ; and (ires were raging on both sides of Market and Sixth streets. The wind, which was increa-ing in -trenght, was carrying a fiery shower to a great dis tance ; all around the scene of devastation persons were hurrying away their families and their goods to places of safety. The firemen, bewildered and dis tracted at the insufficiency of the means at their command in comparison with the vastness of the field of exertion before them, struggled manfully i wiih the destroying element, anil under the judicious command of their officers did the best they could. The fire continued to spread until after day-light, and w hen the sun ro-e a sickening scene of destruc tion wn- exhibited. T'.very building on the north side of Market street, irom the unfinished iron struc | ture at N. '219, to Sixth street, was in ruins, and j most of the houses on the east side of Sixth street to | North street, were down. The western ends Of | North and Commerce streets were in ruins, while ug ly gap- were made in the blocks south and west of the hounds described. Some st> buildings w ere de stroyed, many of them stores of great value. m A S6 E* B K i>: On the '24 th ult.. at the Par-onage .n St. Clairs vilie, hy the Rev. N. K.
