[Special Despatch to tbe Chicago Tnb one.] St. Locis, March 31. A fire broke out in the lindcll Bold last even ing, about nine o'clock. When first seen it was la tbe seventh story, but toon spread to tbc sixth, and then wrapped the entire building In finjncß. The fire was supposed to have originated Irom a pas JeL About eleven o'clock the wall on lie south eastern comer fell into tbe street, and thejv hole was a total lc» 3. The conflagration was a temble and gloiiovt sight. Tbc losses, as near as I could gather In tbe contusion, were as follows: Ihe bailUmr, owned H)y Edgar Ames ard Henry Ames, Jr., is a total loss. It was in* snrrd lor t3U*,vOQ, mostly In various local com* panics. Ihe lessees were Hatch, Weaver, Felt &. Co. Bui lit le furniture was saved; but they had an insurance of £IOO,OOO on it. There was also about £IOO,CGO insurance on the stocks of tbc htores In tbc building. Tbe losses are estimated at about talfa million dollars in all.* St. Locis, March SI —The Lmdell Hotel, the largest bnDdlng ol its hind on this continent, if rot In tbc world, was totally d«-sirojed by fire last night. There is a good ocai ot mystery abont the origin of the fire, but the most reliable accounts are that It broke on* Is one of tbc wceUrout room in the fifth story, about halt-past eight o'clock; hut the alarm was not sounded till after nine o'clock. At thu time the ore was confined to the Iwo rooms on that fi<*or, bat owing to the extreme height of tbe bmldtng, and the great difficulty of reaching the fire with the hose. U gradually as cended rill it broke through the sixth ard seventh stories, and reached tbe roof, near tbe north west comer of the building. From this point the fire rapidly extended underneath the roof across tbc entire v loth uf the hotel to the Fast Sixth street front, and then moved rapidly downward till the whole structure was enveloped in Camts. Vp to this time the fire spread across the building. It was the general belief tout the lower part of tbe bold would be saved; but as soon as tbe Danes reached the elevators and inner courts, up and through which strong currents of a!r rushed, the fire received new and powerful Impetus, and all hope uf staying the devouring dement was lo»t. The efforts of the firemen were not relaxed, however, and the full force of tbe Fire Department was pul forth •until three o'clock, at which time all the Inner work was consumed, and a consider able portion of the walls had tatleu ; and what was once tbe stateliest, most Imposing end hand somest hotel In tbc country, was a mats of crum bling, blackened ruins. The building was owned by the estate of Henry Ames & Co„ Edgar Ames being the representa tive of the property. Its original cost was s little over £300,000, end it was bought by Amea & Co., In December, IKS, two mon’Jn after it opened, for £373.W«0. The insurance on tie ‘ hotel wwnmn ta ihr.o hundred and too thousand dol lars, i-eventy to eighty thousand of which is in Eastern companies, mainly New York, Brook lyn and Philadelphia. The lessee* were Hatch, Weaver & Felt, whose loss cm fnmitnre aud stores is about £500,000 insured for £IOO,OOO. But little of the furniture was saved. There were abont 400 guests in the hold, a large number of whom consisted of families boarding in the bouse. Tbe latter lost most of their personal effects, owing to the confoslon and excitement prevailing, and the disbelief that the bouse would be destroyed, untiljlt was too late to remove them. The loss from this source probably reached *IOO,OOO. The goods in thertorea underneath the hotel were almost totally destroyed, although there was abundant time to save them. Loss probably *50.000. Thetotiilloßsbyihe dlsaaterwill scarcely be lesa than 11,000,000. A list of tbe losing companies will begivenaseoon as obtained. Tbe fire was st-m at a distance of twenty-seven miles from the dtr. Mr, Ames says be'shall not rebuild tic botch but a number of prominent citizens have taken tbe marter in hand and exer tions will b» made to efleet Its reconstruction. Sr. Louis, March 21.—The following is a partial list ofMr. Ames’ Insurance on the hotel: *IO,OOO each in the Phcolx and Lortllard (New York), and North America, of Philadelphia; Commerce, of Albany; and *IO,OOO each In the followicg SL Louis companies: Marine, Globe, Citizen’s, At lantic, United States, SL Louis, Mound City, Missouri, Stale, Mutual, Home, and Pacific, Batch, Weaver, Felt & Co. bad the following, among other, insurance on furniture: *5,000 each in tbe Continental, Washington, Jefferson, St, Louis, and Excelsior; *IO,OOO m the Pacific, Na tional. and Mississippi Valley—all St. Louis offi ces ; and *5,000 in the Xlna, of Hartford. This fire Is the most serious calamity that has befallen St. Louta since the great fire in 1810, and is aiu alter of universal regret and sorrow. The value of surrounding property has already de preciated ten lo twenty per cent, and if the hotel is not rcbult this depreciation will be felt for a distance of msny blocks. The weather is wot and cold. A slight snow fell this morning. Caibo, March 3L—Over *IO,OOO hivo been sub scribed bare for the relief of the destitute sol diers.

Both of the franchises proposed reduce the county franchise to £ls ratirfg. Dis raeli estimated the scheme would ado 1,000,000 voters in boroughs and Cuo,ooo in the countries. Ur. Gladstone severely criticised the scheme, and be declined to accept Disraeli’s figures, re- or the new voters as men in ockram. He denounced the dual vote as a gi gantic iraud, and expressed the opinion that the bill would never pass us a whole. Mr. Lowe and other supporters of tbs Govern ment opposed the hill. The Liberal journals, in cluding the Timet, all consider there is little chance for the b'H, and call for the abandonment of the duality principle at once—that proposition alone being le al to the whole scheme.

BRITISH REFORM. Lord Derby Explain* tbe Particulars of tbe Xteform Bill. [From the London Telegraph. March 15.] The meeting of Lord Derby’s supporters, which was called by Colonel Taylor for yes terday aftqrnoon, at the Premier’s official residence In Downing street, excited all the interest usually attaching to a great politi cal event, as ft was anticipated that a full disclosure would he made of the ministerial intentions on the subject <»l Befonn. At all the West-Eud clubs the question was dis cussed by cncer crowds of members of both Houses of Parliament and leadlcg politi c ans; while suca was the impatience of the Conservative members, that they flocked to Downing street some time before the hour appointed, and by half-past two o’clock 195 members were present. Lord Derby, who had been in consultation with his col leagues In the Cabinet at_his private resi dence. proceeded to the meeting about two o’clock. The actual numbers, However, as sembled did not represent the full strength of the party, as letters of adhesion were sent by forty-three others ; so that the total lorce mustered In reply to the invitation may be said to be 23S—about fifty short of the estimated Conservative force in the Lower House. We may remark that Lord Crnnbomewas among those present, but General Peel was not. The Adullamites were cocspicuons by their absence. Lord Derby nt once proceeded to explain to the meeting tbe particulars of ibe Reform I Bill which the Government will introduce on Monday next. Before doing so he detailed the events which had occurred before the secession of the three members of the Cabi net. So assured was he on that memorable Saturday that bis colleagues were unani mous, that he proceeded to consult the Queen upon the measure, and her Majesty was pleased to express her approval. He was therefore not prepared for the course adopted by his colleagues, to whose honor and straightforwardness, however, he boro the highest testimony. In tbe measure they intended to introduce on Monday, Min isters proposed to adopt in conntles a rating franchise of £ls annual amount, in place of £SO rental, tbe other county franchises re maining as at present. With regard to the borough enffnige, his Lordship explained at seme length las reasons for thinking that a rating or rental valuation did not afiord the proper basis for an enduring and satisfactory settlement. The Cabinet had decided on proposing the borough suffrage on house hold rating, but coupled with two years’ residence and personal payment ’of rates; these conditions were considered essential. But to admit the largest possible Infusion of tbe best dements now excluded from the privileges of elec tors, they proposed to cre ate four additional qualifications. One would be based on education, and would in elude ministers of religion, members of the learned professions, graduates of universities, certificated schoolmostcr.- aud others, sach, for instance, ns persons «bo have obtained a middle-class examina tion certificate. Tnc others would be : tbe payment of twenty shillings a year direct taxes, the possession of £SO In the Funds, and of the same amount in a savings bank. In order, however, to give to property allied with Jorg residence that legitimate weight to which* the Government thought It was en titled, a second vote would be conferred on every man who, besides having occupied a house for two years, should, also pay the twenty shillings annually of direct taxation. In other words, u householder paying that amount of Income or assessed taxes would have two votes, one as a two-years’ resident, the other as a contributor to the wants of the Slate. He Intimated, however, that the dual system was not one to which the Government were strongly wedded. It was not proposed to disturb any of the existing franchises, all of which would be preserved. Compound houecholdersalready qualified would be exempted from personal payment of rates ; but those not yet quali fied, who obtain a qualification under the new scale, would he entitled to hare their names put on the register by personally payingtheirrates, and thus bringing them selves under the conditions named. He con cluded by saying that he. of course, could not tell whether the House ol Commons would accept this measure from the adminis tration ; but he had a very strong confidence that it would be acceptable to the country, and. if necessary, be would appeal to the contUtnenciee. With regard to disfranchise ment, the Cabinet adhered to the prouojals ?a recently expounded by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. A HEAVY KOBBBRT. A Railroad Cashier’s Office Plundered, of Twenty Thousand irollao. From the New Albany (Ind.l Lodger, March S' I .] About two o'clock, yesterday morulng.oue 01 tuc most daring and successful robberies ever perpetrated in this section of th? Slate, was committed at the office of the Jefferson ville Railroad Company, at the foot of Wall street, Jeffersonville. During tbe pa-t three days Paymaster Sanders has been busily en gaged in preparing the payrolls of the em ployes along the line of the road, and had finished his labors at a late hour last night, placing the money in a large tin box, ready to go ont on tbe pay train this morn ing. Before leaving bis office every thing was securely locked, and as he passed out between eleven and twelve o'clock tbe night watchman, Patrick Dean, was on duty as usual in the lobby on the first floor. About two o’clock a man in disguise, with a carpet-sack in his hand, rapped at the door of the lobby, which was opened by Dean, when the man inquired if the house was a hotel. Dean thinking him a benighted traveller, opened wide the door anti stepped to the threshold to direct him, when four men who were secreted near the door sprang upon him and threatened his Ji(ciih«gave the alarm. Tbe watchman, although in their power, was inclined to make a noise, but a blow over tbe bead with a pistol felled him to the floor, and tbe thieves then proceeded to bind, blindfold and gag bim. After this was done he was earned up stairs, and, while two stood guard, tbe others, sup posed to be six In number, went to the Pay master's room on the second floor. They endeavored to pry open the door, but iailing in this they broke open the window on the north side and gained an entrance. Tbe first object that attracted their attention was the tin box, which they broke open and robbed of abont $20,000, and some records and mem orandums. The records and memoranda be ing taken, the Paymaster is unable to tell the exact amount stolen, but the above figures are supposed to cover tbe loss. Tbe watchman says the party were not over three-quarters of au hour accomplish ivg their purpose, and the party who stood guard over bim called him by name and asked at what hour Mr. Sanders left the office. The voice of one was familiar to him, but the disguise ol the party was so com plete (all being black and wearing soldier overcoats) that he could not call to mind who any of them were. Aflcr securing their booty the scoundrels left Dean hound and gagged on the floor. In about an boar one of them returned and par tially unbound his arms and then lied. Dean soon released himself, and went out in search of a policeman, whom be soon found, and instantly a search was instituted. In an open lot, abont one square from the scene of the robbery, the tin box, i several overcoats, and two sledge-hammers were found. In the paymaster’s office the robbers bad left a cooper’s axe, a screw driver, and a chisel, which had been taken from a cooper-shop near the corner of Wall and Market streets. The rascals evidently were prepared to blow open the safe, hut the money fonnd In the tin box seemed to satisfy them, and consequently that strong box was kit uninjured. A HORRIBLE TRAGEDY. Tbe Result of Superstitions Credulity— a man I'bops Off Ills Neighbor’s lit ad with an Ax. fFioui the Detroit Post. March 23.] Another of those startling and horrible events which periodically agitate the coni' inanity, occnrrcd yesterday in the vicinity of the quiet village of Swan Creek, on the Mich igan Southern & Northern Indiana Railroad, it seems that a boy in the village has been and is credited with the powers of second sight, or a species of pronhetlc vision, which has given him considerable notoriety. The most ancient female has sought his aid, and the avaricious have conferred with him concerning matters of monetary con sideration. It is said that be is in possession of a stone, through the mani pulation of which he can see wonderful ibints and opens the concerns of the past, present and future with as much facility as the most mysterious-minded could imagine. Uls powers of seership have been doubted, but notwithstanding this many have flocked to his father’s house to test his visionary mode of revelation. From this blind confl uence a most horrible Incident bus occurred, resulting in the death _of a hard-working and probably innocent man. It seems that a man named Kelson lost a« axe, and suspected a neighbor named Wat kies of stealing it. It being sugar time. Kelson needed the services of the blade, and i.rocceded with rather wrathful feelings to Welkin’s shanty lor the purpose of getting the Implement. The peculation wasindig ra» lly dn |<-d, but so well satisfied was Kel son that Watkins had the axe in his posses sion that he openly accused him oflt. A per sonal encounter ensued, during which Kel son received the worst of it. After this he went to the boy alluded to, and was told by him, after consultation with the stone, that 'Watkins had stolen the axe. Satisfied that it was true, ho returned and renewed the quarrel. What passed between them Is pet known, but that a most fearful encounter took place cannot be doubled, as Watkins’ .-banty is besmeared with blood. Uls door way Is bespattered with blood and other horrible evidences of a desperate flight ore apparent from, appearances. How the clrcnmelanceflortbcafTair first be came known are not apparent, neither can a history of the deadly light be read until 'the inquest takes place, but that it was a terrible one cannot be doabted. Kelson was first dis* covered flying about five yards from tbe shanty, with his head literally cut to pieces, and a ghastly wound on bis right breast, suf ficient ofltseif to have caused death. A more horrible or sickening sight than the body of the wounded man presented, would he impossible to conceive. His skull was batlci ed in, and a gaping wound on the left side of the head, of the measure of the axe, exhibited how fearful a blow bud been given. “When our reporter left the body wasstill at the shanty where the terrible affair occurred, awaiting the arrival of the Coroner of the county, Watkins, after the occurrence, left the place, and it is reported gave hltueelf up to the authorities at Mon roe, but bow far this is true remains yet to be told. He is spoken of as a bold, vicious, bad mas, whose ill temper has made him the terror of the neighborhood. Many re gard the massacre as the evil results of the boy’s representations, but at the same time are willing to be rid of the companionship of so dangerous a neighbor.

Correspondence (March IB) of the New York Tribune.] The new Military Reconstruction BUI caused some of our rebel citizens to wear long faces. It is a bitter pill. but they will swallow it. 1 suppose the Radicals of the North cannot be expected to understand the exquisite agony of the aristocratic Southern ers, who hare been accustomed to the In alienable right of whipping negroes to their heart’s content, when they see the same ne groes holding the ballot In their black hands. It is amusing, by the way, to see how the rebels are beginning to love the negro since this bill passed. One year ago he was look ed upon with loathing, but now with smiles and bows. Then be was not lit to speak to ; now he is patted on the shoulder and called a good fellow. Then they complained of the intolerable odor; now it Is sweet as the spices of Cathay. If the thing goes on at this rate, wc shall expect to hear old slave holders claim to have been life-long Aboli tionists, or possibly see Jeff. Davis running as the Radical candidate for President from the South, against Wendell Phillips, Con-, servntive of the North. The unreconstructed rebels are busy with their plans. No stone will be left unturned to accomplish the defeatof the Republicans, nor will they be at all scrupulous about the means. Many of tbe “ poor whites” can be bought for poor whiskey, and many others

be bartered and frightened, leaving but few white votes iu this part of the State for the Radicals. Strong efforts will he mode, also, to divide the freedmen by nominating a con servative man. who has friends among-the colored people. The chief trouble, however, will be in tno black counties, where there arc no schools, and where the blacks are still under the tyrannical heels of their old masters. There Is not the shadow of a doubt but that the freedmen, with very few exceptions, when not compelled to the con trary by the rebels, will vote with the ex tremist Radicals. A Remarkable Woman. The Princess Metternlch, as is well known, ranks high among the witty and accom plished women of the French Court. She always appears to be inspired with some novel and fresh Idea. Not long since, a par ty ol intimate acquaintances were assembled at her house, when the subject of the eccen tric toilettes of the present day was started, whereupon the hostess proposed that every woman should compose her toilette accord ing to her Individual taste and character. The idea once started, the company set to work, and commenced composing the dress of a frivolous woman by giving her a butterfly for emblem, and continuing with the sentimental woman, the witty woman, &c.‘ The muse was to wear laurel in her hair, a lyre for a waist buckle, a dress stud ded with stars because she loved ethereal regions; then the lower part of her skirt was to be embroidered with all her attri butes, arts, sciences, natural history, «fcc. A sentimental woman, on the contrary, shbnld be decorated with hearts, arrows, doves, half opened roses, &c. It was to be regretted that some clever artist, with a rapid pencil like Gustave Dorc, for instance, was cot present to sketch these toi lettes, so ingeniously commenced. The idea, however, captivated, and a /ew evt nines after the same company met at the Princess’ house, and some were robed in a very fanciful, although highly successful manner. The most captivating was a warlike costume intended fora heroine. The dress was wolte satin striped with gold cannons; the low coat bodice was crimson velvet, - crossed with a black ribbon, which was striped with every variety of color, to recall the different ribbons used for decora tions : the epaulettes to the coat consisted of gold fringe; round the waist there was a gold band, to which was suspended a minia ture needle gun ; the halrwas turned back a Vanllgve. and the headdress was a small hel met in chased gold, encrusted with precious Pace, the Alleged murderer. fFrora tbe Valparaiso Repabllcao, 29th.] This oi&n was brought to this city, from Laportc Jail, on Tuesday last, by Sheriff Bar tholomew, and now lies in our county Jail, awaiting the 'action of the grand Jary, be fore whom bis case will probably come this week, li indicted, be will then be arraigned before Judge Osborne for hie pics, and com mitted for trial. Page will doubtless take change of venue, on account of alleged prejudices Against him In this community, lie comes among us well dressed, and shows being well fed; is seemingly cheerful, aod converses freely on all current topics, except tbe cberce against him. His trial will ex cite deep interest, not only here, but wherever the dreadful tragedy was related. Dr, LlrlucttOße’N Alleged Dcaib. Dr. Livingstone's daughter, who Is living in Glasgow, has received a letter from Sir Roderick Murchison, in which he says : The more I reflect ou the story told us by the Johanna (the nine Johanna men), the more 1 doubt its veracity. It seems very probable that they ran away by concert among each other, and lelt your father with tbe Indian bavildar and another or two, and tbcu cooked up the story they have to tell* If it were true that they really buried him, they would, I think, have brought away soD-e relic to prove tuc truth of their tale. I shall, therefore, cling to (he hope until Dr. Kirk clears up the mutter.
