Tat Bcajnso or th* E-stbkit InniMABY? Ttrribl* and Thrilling Incidents?Re mor ml 9f More than On* Hmndre4 Patunts-A Woman Supposed la to Burned.?Thla morning, at a very early hoar, the E-strset Hoapttal, better knowh aa the Washington Infirmary, waa discovered to be oo fire It contained at the time from ninety to oae hundred aick and wounded soldlera, and a considerable number of other Government patlenta The fire Is believed to have originated In defective flue from the furnace, which waa located la the cellar nnder the addition whtah projected from the center of the main building In I the rear The rooms of the Siaters of Charity were In thia addition?^ver the furnace?and the three medical cadets bad a room on the floor above The rooms of the Sistera were filled with smoke about half an hour after midnight, and the Slater Superior first gave the alarm They had barely time to hurry on their clothing and escape, leavl ng everything but the clothing they had on In the burning building Their cries brought In the guard, and soon the alarm became general. Pr* Rodman, Hutchlns, and Allen, the cadets above alluded to, lost all their personal effects, with the exception of the clothing which they hurriedly put on to leave the burning building. The Metropolitan Police were aoon upon the ground, ana ran through the bouse aroualng all tne lnma'es, and about thla time the acene was awful in the extreme. All of the sick and wounded able to riae wrapped the b?dcloiblng around them and escaped from the building, and the ahrleka of those unable to do so were terribly piercing, and thrilled the heart* of all who beard them. The citizens present, the officers of the Institution, and the Metropolitan police, were all active In rescuing the weaker patients, who had to be taken up bodily and brought through the smoke and flames to a place of safety Some were carried to the City Hal), some to the school bouse on Judiciary Square, (a hospital for some time past,) some to the former quarters of Griffin's Battery, some to Old Trlnty Church, on Fifth street, and many to private reside ces in the neighborhood. It is believed by the officers of the institution that all the patients were rescued with the exception of one?an ag*d woman, named Mra Huaaey, who waa aent to the Infirmary aome time aince by the Commissioner of Public Buildings She cannot be found, and It la supposed sne has perished in the flames The alarm at no time became general through the city, and many persons living within two or three squares knew nothing of the flre until this morning One hour and more after the flre was discovered a single alarm bell waa rang, and it wu at leaat an hour after that before any flre engines arrived. Bv that time the addition and the eastern portion of the main building were enveloped in flames Tbe flre now made conatderable headway; and at (5 o'clock this morning nothing remained of the Washington Infirmary but a mass of blackened walla snd smoking timbers,with the exception only of tbe west wing, which is comparatively uninjured The walla of the addition hare nearly all fallen, and the front wall of tbe east wing Is cracked so badly that It will have to be taken down. Dr White, the principal, lost all hla personal effects; and It it stated that the books and papers of tbe institution have been destroyed The atslstant surgeons (Doctors Gooley snd Pooley) also *5* their clothing, as did the steward (Mr. Hill), ward master (Mr Davis), and other officers The fire most have been burning some time before It was discovered Soon after the Sister Su perior gave the alarm, i s >ldler was aent Into the room where the flames had buret out with two buckets of wafer, but the door being closed on him, and the amoke suffocating, he lost his presence of mind, and did not apply the water judiciously, whereby the progrea* of the flre might have been temporarily checked For aome reason tbe water which Is conveyed through the building in pipes was not used. ..Our citizens were active in affording relief to the inmates of the institution, and hot coffee and other restoratives were at once on band The ladles have been unremitting In their efforts to secure the welfare and comfort of the patients, and I no lack of bed clothing and other necessaries haa been suffered to exist. The Council Chamber of the City Hall contains some 'iO or 30 of the patients, and many more are in the rooms on the ground floor of the west wing of the City Hall A host of kind hearted ladies were present tendering their services thia morning, and the officera or the building have shown great kindness The Mayer offered to do w m,Kht be necessary in tbe way of relief ?(^rLSkluar^pre*DU a ,1?ht thl< rooming, with the amoklng ruins of the building, and 151k" rk*,n,furnlt?,reacattered over the lot Most of the furniture was destroyed by flre, u the energies of everybody were directed almost exclusively to securing the safety of tbe patients _ The want of an efficient flre department was fully demonstrated laat night, and we have to acknowledge the humiliating fact that the flre would not have been nearly so destructive If there bad beea a sufficient supply of hose to bring water to the burning building. As we go to press, the patlenta from the City \^C ' *re conveyed In ambulances to the other army hospitals in this vicinity. 1*. McCLXLLAIf P***E3TXO WITH A SwoXD th* ?word recently voted t0 Gen.

The caae was taken before Justloe Walter. From the documents presented In his defence. It was shown to tbe satisfaction of the examining magistrate that there waa do ground for the charge of false pretences Mr. McNichol testified that Col Baalou came to his house some weeks ago and took board for himself and aeveral others representing himself aa the colonel of a New York regiment After hla remaining until his bill was 8119 50, Mr. McNichol made Inquiry at the State department as to his position, and was told that there was no such officer.

Maaloo, but the regiment was disbanded j and now be came from the members of the regiment In New York, to atop his further operations. Col Baalou exhlblteda peas from Gen.

Blockade at the Lone Bridge Tbe ntipre, cedented storm of Saturday made a considerable , breach In the solid causeway of the bridge where It joins the timber work on this side, but the damage was temporarily repaired, and the bridge has been passable until this morning. The water has risen very rapidly. Since yesterday, and at nine o'clock this morning, It bad submerged the road on the Virginia aide to the depth of several feet, rendering any passage at that point impnsuable, as to get to terra firma it would be necessary to swim any horses attempting to make the passage. As we go to press the water Is over the solid part of the bridge?the causeway?snd the en Tent is very strong and pressing with terrible force against the structure. Great quantities of drift wood, and a large nntnbef of pumpkins, have rome doWn with the flood and are banked against the bridge, ana a number of people are engaged in securing the material for pies, as well as layIng in fuel for the winter A soldier, supposed to have been drowned near Leesbtirg, with a light blue woolen uniform, is lying on a huge pile of drift wood, within a few feet of the bridge The body is much discolored and swollen, and has been examined, but there is no trace of a wasLnd A great number of army wagons and a large number of soldiers have returned to this side after vainly trying to force a passage A cavalry regiment went down about 1 o'clock, to cross into Virginia but was obliged to return. Thr Stabbing Cask ?This morning, Justice Clark examined the case of the Italians who were charged with being concerned in a disturbance on Seventh, near N street, last night, in which \V. H. Thomas was stabbed. The Justice called for the witnesses, but no witness of the transaction appeared. Thomas, who said be would bring other evidence than his own, went to the guardhouse this morning before the hour set for trial, went away, and did not return. From the statements of the Italians, all of wbom are fruit peddlers, It appeared that about 8 o'clock two of them were attacked and beaten at the corner of Seventh and N streets, and they ran into the house to escape Roundsman Curtis, with a squad of patrolmen, being Informed of the affair, and that the parties had taken refuge in the Italian's house, went to the door and ask?d admittance as an officer. The inmates supposing It the same crowd that had beaten their friends, refused to let them in. One of the Italians seized an oid broken gun and tried to frighten them away. The officers gained admittance, and arrested all in the bouse. One of the inmates was badly hurt in the face, and another slightly; which they said was done before the police came by the crowd attacking the house throwing bricks through the windows. Justice Clark having no evidence upon which to hold the parties for court, dismissed the case. King's National Circus ?This evening, Mr. King will commence his regular equestrian season. He has labored assiduously to render "thljgs" comfortable for his friends, and we hope his enterprising efforts may be amply repaid. His company, for strength and ability, has no equal, some of his?rt?it?j having the capacily and reputation for commanding princely salaries Mr Melville, the Australian rider, for instance, gets #300 per week, and is always in demand. Mr. King, in securing hiin, has evinced plainly that he aodi not fear to invest his capital where he thinks it will pay him and please the public. Mr. Dan Gardener, the clown, is a humorous personage not unknown to the habitues of the circus. Wm. Kincade, the hero of 100 somersets, will appear to-night; so will Mr. F. A Jones, a young gymnast of exceeding grace and chasteness of style; Mad'lle Marie, Miss Eloise, Mad'lle Virginia, will all "assist;" the entire forces, both great and small, under the direction of that veteran manager, F. A. Wbellaker Mr. C. Scott, the associate manager of Mr King. Is an urbane, accommodating gentleman, well calculated to make friends for any establishment he is connected with. Descent upon a Ranch* ?On Saturday night about 9 o'clock, Sergeant Downer, with a detachment of the metropolitan police of the Second Ward, made a descent upon a bouse kept by Jas. Kelly, on E street, between Thirteenth and Fourteenth, and captured the proprietor and twentyone of his colored patrons The bouse has been complained of on several occasions, and this descent will certainly convince the proprietor and his customers that the metropolitan police is rather differently constituted from the old force, under which they were so seldom disturbed A few of the colored prisoners were dismissed, there being no reason to bold them, and the remainder were fined #5 58 each; and the proprietor, for selling liquor to negroes, was fined $10 58. Recovery of Property.?Yesterday, Roundsman Cronin, of the Fourth Ward police, went to the house of Mr. Grimes, near Good Hope, Md , and recovered a horse, saddle and bridle, supposed to be stolen by Bobby Garcia, and sold to Mr. Grimes. Mr. Grimm has another animal similarly procured, of which he is himself sus{>icious since this affair, and intends bringing it 0 Washington to-day. He was very much mortified by the fact that he had purchased a stolen horse The recovery of the property resulted from the trial in the case of Col Thompson against Garcia, mentioned elsewhere.

CoLBra*.?We nnderstand that a correspondence on toe subject of Col. Ba>er'e military conduct has tiken plac; between Or. Baker, a brother of tbe lamented hero, and Lteat. Col. Colburn, of Gen. Meridian's staff It a-peart that on tbe 3>Hh ult, Or Baker, addreaaed a note to Col. Colburn. calling bia attention to an article in Waabtngton Stat, In wbteh It ia st.it-d on tbe authority of Col. Colbnrn, that tbe disastrous result of tbe late battle at Ball'a Bluff, was a direct consequence of tbe d I so bed I ence of orders by Col Baker who commanded In that action Tbe Dr aava that he la warranted In believing that the natural concern which he la entitled to have In tbe reputation of bla brother, will Induce Col Colbnrn to enabl; him, (Dr. B.) bi aoon aa possible, to bave Col. Ci lburn s name withdrawn from the Iriarlous attacks upon tUe memory of tbe deceated; and in this connection be names George Wilkes, Kaq , aa the proper medium of communication. To th'.a Col. Colburn replied^on tbe 1st Us*.,) that be had not seen the article r^prred to In tbe Star, and regrets that his name was mentioned In connection with It He says, however, that be did make a statement to persons connected with the press, including tbe editor of the Star, and that the statement waa made from lnformattoa re ceived from Gtn^ Stone and others He tbea repeats what be did say upon that oc?*elon, and adds, that be spoke in tbe highest terms of Col. Baker, and nil tbe officers and men engaged, and says anything different from this, In that paper, must have come from some other sou-oe. and expresses a regret that bis name abouid be connected with any publicatioi at ail unpieaaant to any friend of a br?.ve soldier who baa fallen In battle. In reply to this. Dr. Baker says tiiat, ln^amucb ai the name of Gen. Stone has been given aa tbe aource of the main statemen* iu relation to C?l. Maker, be does not know that be hi? anything further to request of Col. Co'burne, and closes tbe correspondence by remarking that, Inasmuch aa the main statement did not appear in Gen Stone'a official report, be must conclude that Gen Stone baa ascertained that be wai in error In relation to it; and that Col. Baker fell, not only In ample fulfillment of hia duty, but in tbe strict performance of ordera " We bave aim ply to atate In connection with the Republican's version of tbia correspondence that whenever Dr Baker may make public the correspondence In question it will be found that tbe Star atated nothing whatever concerning the unfortunate affair at Ball'a Bluff aa having been derived from Lieut Col Colburn wblcb he does not reiterate. That be epoke In tbe hlghert terms of tbe gallantry of tbe late Col Baker to certainly true not only of Lieut. Col. Colburn but of all otbera who apeak or write of him. Lieut. Colonel Colburn, we may add, did not tell Dr. Baker that anything had been attributed to blm by the Star which he bad not freely told to lta conductor and other gentlemen of tbe preaa. Dr Baker, according to tbe Rtpublttm*, doaa General Stone great injustice In Intimating that bis published report does not bear out all that the Star published as the account obtained from Colonel Colburn It will be well for Dr Baker to publish his correspondence with Colonel Colburn, who, we feel assured, is as Incapable of entertaining a disposition to Injure tbe military tame of tbe dead at of tbe living.
