I From the New York Time*, May 4.] Tiib Iiaa Ki*?.? A few Invited guests wero treated to a novel spectacle yesterday afternoon at Jones's Wood. Signor Cristoforo Buono Core was kind enough to roast himself for their private gratification. A neat little bower was constructed of chip and brushwood, and a gentleman, probably a young salamander, and still in the blue s?ate.set fire to it. The wind was high, and there was soon a good blaze, taotenoagh to force the curious back from their positions, and to cause the young sala mander to look red in the face. The old salaman der began to make himself at home. He stepped into the roaring mass, walked leisurely among the dames, made his appearance at the fonr entrances of the structure, and remained fizzing and cooking uttil the light material was all consumed. Wher ever the fiames were fiercest he plroed himself, and although his helmet cracked and hngh blisters of a saline character bulged out on it. he himself was safe and sound; neither spent in wind nor Hushed in face. Such a contrivance certainly merits at tention in a humanitarian point of view. The fire department, in particular, should look into the matter. THE ITALIAN SALAMANDER. | From the New York Uaily News May 20.1 The most remarkable exhibition which we have had the good fortune ?o witness for-a long time took place at Jones's Wood on Wednesday after noon. Cristoforo Buono Core, who has created great excitement not only among the masses of the peop e of London. but also upon its savants, ap peared at Jones's Wood at the time named to ?iv" an exhibition to a select number of gentlemen of the wonderful merits of a dress which he has in vented, and which, he claims, is not only imper vious to fire, but, when worn, will preserve the body from injury, though the dress be in actual contact with flame. This he puts on, of course before going into the fire, which is prepared as follows; Two iron cages are formed to intersect each other, about fifteen feet long by seven feet high, but only three feet wide, with fouropenings or doorways. These he completely su rrounds and cover? with light brushwood, which is fired, and when the whole becomes, as it were, one body of tlame. he enters, traverses the several narrow burning avenues, passing in and out at each opening with apparent ease and perfectly un harmed. Boon after the wood had been fired the heat wa? so great that the spectator could not stand nearer to it than eight or ten yards, and at that distance only With great discomfort. All w ho saw the ex periment were per'ectly satisfied that he could do all he promised. In fact, lie appe*red to be the only dissatisfied person on theground, forthe rea son tbat the tire was not hot enough for him. The exhibition will be repeated on Wednesday nevt and the proprietor of the grounds has male liberal preparations for the enjoy ment of visitors. A FIRE KING. 1 From the New York Sun, May 1ft. 1 Yesterday a number of newspaper reporters and other persons visited Jones's Wood to see an Ital ian. Signor Buono Core, walk unscathed through a hot tire. About 4 o'clock the gentleman made his appearance clothed in a suit of can vas, painted red. Around an iron arbor, with four entrances lay a large pile of light brushwood. This was ig nited. The Italian then unconcernedly walked through the burning mass, remaining amid the flames until the wood bad been consumed. The exhibition completely demonstrated the practica bility of persons walking through lire unharmed when elothed in fire proof garments. On uncov ering, Signor Core waa discovered in a state of profuse perspiration and in no wise injured by the experiment. THE FIRE KING-REMARKABLE EXHIBI TION. | From the Brooklyn Union, May 19.] A private exhibition of a very novel character was given yesterday in Jones's Wood by an Ital ian gentleman who styled himself Christoforo Bu ono Oore, or the Fire King, who stood in the midst of a tierce tire for nearly half an hour, thoroughly establishing his claim to the title he has assumed The entertainment was quite curious, but the Sig nor has higher claims for his invention than a mere show. It was accorded by all present yester day that the Signor made good his claims, and his invention merits the attention of those interest ed? aad who is not??in the saving of human life. A SALAMANDER. [From the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, May 19 I There are a great many wonderful things being done in and around New York Just now by the spirits and magicians, but these manifestations are of no practical utility, except to the exhibit ors, who are reaping a rich harvest from the cred ulous. Something that is at once enrious and useful has, however, been brought to public no tice. A Signor Buono Core has invented a fire proof suit, in which he can walk into a burning building with flames playing around him and feel no inconvenience. This discovery may be of great service. It is not expected that every one will at once order a salamander outlit, and keep it in the house in case of fire, bat it will be a good thing for each fire company to be provided with a suit, which will enable the wearer to enter burning buildings .save property, and assist materially in extinguishing fires. [From the Evening Express, Mav 30.] Have we a salamander among us ? If by a sala mander is meant a living being which can walk unharmed, like the three young men in the Scrip tare story, through a fiery furnace, and come out unscathed, we think Signor Buono Oore is fairly entitled to the appellation, albeit the common no tion that the little reptile from which he de rives it can do the like with impunity ia a fabu lous idea. A few days ago the Signor invited a party to go up to Jones's Wood and witness a de monstration of his right to be considered a mod em Abednego. He entered an iron cage around, over, and upon which an intensely hot fire whs burning all the while, and made himself quite at home therein, for some space. Nor did beseem to care more for the exposure than if he were walking like Adam in Eden, in a garden in the cool of the evening. lie will give his first public exhibition at Jones's Wood next Wednesday af ternoon. It certainly ia a very carious feat. lFrom the Saturday Courier. May 21.] 8ignor Buono Core on Wednesday last gave a Jrivate exhibition to the members of the press at ones's Wood. His arrangement consists of a light iron frame work, standing about ten feet high, with exits and entrances at each end and sU.e, which is plentifully covered with brushwood, saplings and shavings, and a dress somewhat re sembling tbat of the'submarine diver. A young gentleman, evidently disponed to make light of the affair, distributed lucifer matches among those present, with a request to assist in firing the pile, which was speedily accomplished, and aa the heat drove the crowd backward, Buono Core, accoutered in bis novel dress, with a"mar tialstalk." entered the flames, which, Judging by a remark be made as he did so, were scarcely in tense enough to satisfy bis inordinate desire to be comfortably warm I The most ample arrangements have been per fected to have the feat performed in the MOST SATISFACTORY MANNER UPON THE STAGE OF THE CANTERBURY The enrious will not fail to aee this MARVEL OF THE AGE. He apFeat* every night, and at the SATURDAY AFTERNOON MATINEE. Together with the entire Canterbury Company, in AN IMMENSE BILL. AMUSEMENTS. OEOVEE'I THEATKR.

Baltimore, July 26.?The authorities here request the newspapers and correspondents to refrain from publishing rumors of movements either of the rebels or Union troops. There are many wild reports to-day and to night, but I have the best reason to beliere them unfounded. Latest News. [Associated Press Dispatch.j Baltimokb, July 96.?It is extremely diffi cult to obtain any authentic information rela tive to affairs on the Upper Potomac, and rebel movements In the Valley. By far the greater part of the rumors and even positive state ments hourly put in circulation here are evi dently false, and therefore not worth repeating. From all the information tbus far obtained, it is believed that It will be found that the rebel force at present in the Valley, and reported at Martinsburg and other points, is none other than the recent raiding force which, finding they were no longer pursued by a large force, suddenly retraced their sups and fell upon our small force under General Crook, with the object of driving him back beyond the Potomac and the freeing the Valley from Federal troops, enabling the rebels to gather in the crops of the Valley, so vitally important to Lee's army. Donbtless they purpose at the same time do ing all the mischief they can north of the Poto mac, and may, it is thought, attempt a raid in the southern counties of Pennsylvania. It is believed, to-night, that the wild stories so ex tensively circulated here last night and to-day of disaster to onr forces by encountering this rebel advance have little foundation in fact The extent of the news, it is believed, will be found to be that Gen. Crook was, after a sharp contest, compelled to fall back before a supe rior force, with no serious loss. The reported loss of guns does not appear to rest on anything more than tumor, and we have now counter reports that he saved all his gnns. The telegraph line is working west as far as Harper's Ferry, but is in exclusive use of the military authorities. Trains are running safely to Frederick and Harper's Ferry. There is no excitement here, and very little apprehension, though, of course, proper pre cautionary measures are in progress. THE RAID ON THE MONTGOMERY AND WEST POINT RAILROAD. The following has been received from Gen. Rousseau's expedition: "Marietta, Ga., July *24, 18<U.? To the As iistant Adjutant General, District of Tennessee: We arrived here day before yesterday, and have been eminently successful, and have ex ecuted the orders of Gen. Sherman to the let ter. Our loss does not exceed twelve in killed and wounded. I start to-day for Nash ville." On the 22d, Gen. Sherman announced, in a circular to his army, that Gen. Rousseau tiad been entirely successful. The important expedition against tbe Mont gomery and West Point railroad, the success of which is thus officially announced, was projected by Gen. Rousseau when Gen. Sher man was preparing to depart on his great raid through Mississippi, in tbe early part of this year. Dot for various military reasons its exe cution was postponed until the presentmonth. On the .'JOth ultimo Gen. Sherman revived the project, as an important auxiliary to his grand movement upon Atlanta, his object being to cut the railroad between Columbus, Ga., and Montgomery, Ala., so effectually as to destroy permanently the rebel communications be tween those points. Abundant preparations were made for the destruction of tbe ties, rails, bridges, culverts, water tanks, d^pot buildings, locomotives, arsenals, Government machine shops, Ac. ADDITIONAL FOREIGN NEWS.

Tbe belief is generally entertaineu that a peace will soon be concluded. It is reported that King Christian proposes in the peace propositions to include the transfer of the Danish navy, on condition of his re maining King of Denmark, under the protec tion of the German Confederation. The new Danish Ministry nave sent a mes sage to the Rigsraad, of which the following is summary: "The King, deeming that men unconcerned in late events would be better able to save our Fatherland, has decided upon a change of ministers. "We hope to obtain the confidence of the Rigsraad and of the people. Otherwise we shall be powerless to lay down a programme at present. It would be impossible to do so. The new ministers can only give assurance that, in taking their stand firmly upon legal ground, tney will never advise the King to adopt an illegal measure." The message con cludes by saying that Ministers will consider it tbeir mission to uphold the independence of Denmark. The Independence Beige asserts that the King of Denmark has invoked and obtained the intervention of the Emperor Napoleon. commercial.

There is nothing from Jersey to confirm the fifht between the pirate Florida and any other vessel. The report was received on a steamer just as she was sailing for South ampton. Another rebel steamer, "General Lee," is reported to have joined the pirate Florida in the English channel.

VOLUNTEERS, SUBSTITUTES AMD DRAFTED MEJI. Although we have heretofore given consid eration to the rights, duties and incident** ari sing under the enrollment laws, we are admon ished by frequent communications and inqui ries that there are many cltix?iis under exercise of mind upon the subject who have not yet paid sufficient attention to the matter, or prop erly understood that which has been said about It. "We therefore give the following synopsis of the requirements of the law, embracing some things hitherto touched upon aud others not yet noticed: First. The exemptions of the original act to fathers of motherless children twelve years M age, to some members of families in which others are in service, to sons who are the sup port of aged and destitute parents, and for other similar causes, are no longer allowed. Second. The commutition clause, by whioM a person who was drafted might be released upon payment of three hundred dollrrs, is repealed, with a single excepuon in the case of persons conscientiously opposed to bearing arms, who may commute upon payment of thiee hundred dollars, or otherwise be con sidered as non-combatant," and if drafted be held to service for hospital duty, or in the care of freedmen. Persons physically incapa ble of duty are exempted upon surgical exam ination. Third. The division of citizens Into two classes, tbe second class not being liable to service until the first class was exhausted, 13 abolished, and all citizens liable are enrolled in tbe same class and may be held to similar service. Fourth. The age of liability to draft is be tween twenty and forty-five years. Fifth. Volunteers may be received who are between the age6 of eighteen and forty five years. Youths between sixteen and eighteen years may be received with the consent of their parents or guardians. The enlistment of boys under sixteen years of a?e is a military often*? in the officer who recruits them, who may he punished therefor. Sixth. Volunteers, whether white or colored, receive the Government bounty, according to the time for which they agree to serve. For one year, ?100 . for two years, r.K>0 ; for three years, $300. These amounts are paid in instal ments. To a one year s volunteer, when mus tered in, $33 31; to a two years' recruit, S06 06; to a three years' recruit, sil?i). Two other in stalments are to oe paid to the volunteer or his representatives during the term of service. Seventh. The mcntbly pay of a private, either volunteer, substitute or drafted man, is sixteen dollars a month. Non-commissioned and commissioned officers receive an increased pay beyond the rates which were allowed be fore the last session of Congress. Eighth. Drafted men receive no bounties from the Federal Government, and we presume they will not receive any from the town or county to which they belong. Ninth. Substitutes for dralted men, or for men liable to draft, furnished in advance of the draft, receive no bounties from the Gov ernment. Tenth. Representative substitutes for per sons not liable to draft, are considered as vol unteers, and receive the Federal and munici pal bounties, and whatever their principal agrees to pay them. Eleventh. Volunteers and representative substitutes may be mustered in for one, two, or three years, as they may elect. Twelfth. Substitutes for drafted men, or men liable to draft, may be accepted for one, two or three years, according to the time that the principal would have to serve, or as he may engage them. Thirteenth. Representative substitutes for persons not liable to draft may be persons who are liable to draft. Fourtetnth. Substitutes for persons liable to dratt, furnished before drafting, must not them selves be liable. They may either be aliens, veterans or sailor?, who have served two years and been honorably discharged, or the citi/.eue of the States In rebellion, or the slaves of rebel owners. Fifteenth. The principal shall be exempt from dratt during tbe time that the said sub stitute is not liable to draft, cot exceeding the time for which the substitute shall be ac cepted. ? Sixteenth. The United States no longer pays premiums for the procuration of recruits. Seventeenth. Men furnished under the call of July 18, ltd, whether enlisted for one, two or three years, as well as all excess or defici ency of three years' men on caJls heretofore made, will count man for man. The equal ization of the amount of militury set vie ren dered by the different StateB and parts d? States will be effected hereafter. Eighteenth. A substitute for an enrolled man is credited, and, therefore, deducted from tbe quota of the locality he enlists in. Nineteenth. An enrolled man furnishing aa alien as a substitute is exempt lor the time of service of the substitute; unless the alien be comes a citizen, or declares his intention to be come so, in which case the substitute is liable to drait, and his principal likewise. Twentieth. A man may enli6t in the army or navy for three years as a substitute. If in the navy, he must be twenty-three years old. Twenty-first. Recruiting agents in Rebel States must have a letter of appointment from . the State Executive. The particular field of a State in which the ageat is to operate is to be specified in the letter of appointment. All re cruiting agents will be subject to the rules and articles of war. It is made the duty of the commanding officers of rendezvous, to order back to his State or arrest and hold for trial, as he may deem| best, any recruiting agent who shall commit lrands upon tbe Government or recruits, or who shall- violate the instructions issued to govern this recruit ment, or be guilty of any offense against mili tary law. No man shall be recruited who is already in the military service as a, soldier, teamster, laborer, guide, <cc., or who is so em ployed by tbe military authorities as to be of importance to military operations. Recruits procured under this privilege must be deliv ered by the recruiting agents at one of the following named rendezvous, namely:?Camp Casey, Washington, 1). C., for Northeast Vir ginia- Camp near Fortress Monroe for South east Virginia; Camp Newbern, N. C? for North Carolina: Camp Hilton Head, S. C, for South Carolina and Florida; Camp Vicksbnrg, Miss., for Mississippi; and Camp Nashville, Tenn., for Georgia and Alabama. Twenty-second. If it is desired to put any of the volunteer recruits from the rebellious Elates into service as substitutes before or after tbe draft, they mu6t be sent without expense to the Government by the recruiting agent to the district in which tbe principal is enrolled, and there be mustered in by the Provost Marshal, who will Issue the proper substitution papers. It is made tbe duty of commanding officers to afford to recruiting agents all such facilities as tbey can provide, without detriment to the public service, and to prevent recruiting by unauthorized parties. Twenty-third. Tbe enlistment ol hundred day men does not operate to rednoe the liabili ty of the district from which he volunteer*. But if any hundred day man is draft** his hundrWl day's service counts in reducing Ms term or service. Twenty-fourth. Although tbe volunteers are taken for one, two er three years, u>e drar. is for one year. There is sufficient in these statements, me think, to arouse the attention every old sen to the necessity of dolng^' ^ ?n or liable to be to take cave et himself.?/n<?utr<r _ a servant girl, hearing the lady of the honse ask herhusband to bring "Dombey aad Slip with him when he came home to dinner, laid two extra plates on the table for the sup posed ?7"Tfce Bellman of Watertown, Mass., an nouncing a temperance meeting, said It woel* be addressed by six women "who had never (poken belore.'' ?ST Jtoslta, the female rope-daa?ert wt>i ?joss Niagara Falls on a Ught-rope neat kugust W A nice thing in bonnets??he wearer's ace.
