A lm*m Additional Particular* of the Plttabnrg Fire The Legislature of Pennsylvania have ai>propriated *.">0,000 for the reliel ot the suit'.-rer*. Washington City. Baltimore and Philadelphia, have taken measures to send i fliet It has been estimated that 5000 persons were thrown cut of house and home. It is certainly gratifying that no more lives were lost. We have heard of not more than three. Home few penona are missing. The books, paper, money, See., in the vault ol the Bank of Pittsburgh are sate. The iron safes of Kramer, and of Sibbett 8c Jones, stood the test of the firo. The Monongahela Bridge ii not regarded as a very te rious lots, it being somewhat dilapidatt d from age. The Ponn, and the Navigation and Fi't Insurance Com panies, we are glad to learn, will be able to meet the prin cipal part ot their obligations. This is much better than wo expected. Whit per centage will be paid havj no idea. The amount insured in other cities is thought to V: about 40 or $60,000 We observe that some persons have commenced making preparations lor tebuilding. This is an earri-t ot whet may be expected soon. Mechanics and laborers will be in great demand in a short time. The jail is full of thieves! How many eioaped the vi gilance of the police may be estimated from tht" fact.? Mho amount ofa hundred thousand dollars worth of goods have been stolen. The losa is not alone confined to those who were burn id out?those who removed their good*, furniture, lie. have lost immensely. The people of Allegheny an A the neighboring towns art! coming manfully to the aid cf the sufferers. The weather in now delightful. This is a blessing to those who have to search ler homes. All the buildings on the south side are in ashen ? Among them were some of the most valuable manufac turing establishments of the place. The upper end of the town is a total ruin, on both sidea of th?? road. Nearly all the inhabitants of this place depended upon the fac tories that have been destroyed for daily breed. The dis tress that prevails is dreadful. We observe laborers Susy in taking from the ruins the iron and iron ware, which nave stood the test of the fire. An immense amount will be saved. More persons than those who have been burnt out, are sufferers by the recent fire. Thousands of men, women aud children will suffer in consequence of the calamity? by the bankruptcy of Merchants, Manufacturers, &c. We have heard of some persons having raided the rents of their bouses?thus taking advmtage of the necessities of the sufferers. Let tbem be marked ! We are also informed of some who have raised the pricea of provisions, be Such conduct is a disgrace to civilization. Their numcs should bo made public. The rapidity with which the fire travelled may be cal culated from this|incident. Mr Jaynes left our office when the fire was no further than Market street, for home,with a view to pack up his goods and prepare for the roast, but the flames had reachoa his dwelling, on Ross street, about a halt a mile from the place of beginning, ere be had time to save an article, not even a shirt. Thai this fire should bnfflu the efforts of our firemen is not to be wondered at. We are informed by a man who lives on Turtle Creek hills, that cinders were wafted te that place, a distance of 14 miles. This shows the strength of tbe wind at the time of the fire. The number of dwelling houses amount to about 700. Visiters are arriving in town hourly from all directions. A sight at the burnt district is worth a long journey to those who are curionsto see a most stupendous ruin. The Gazelle says, that nearly all the Merchants and Manufacturers, who belonged to tiie 3d Presbyterian Church, were burnt out Among eur huaviest losers is W. Holmes & Co., who by their industry and enterprise had accumulated for tunes, a part of which was swept away by tbe late fire. Mr. Holmes arrived in this city from the South, a few hours alter the fire Yesterday a number of persons were engaged in digging out the rubbish of several buildings, where it was believ ed that rsveral persons had been burned to dwath, but with little success. There are a number of persons missing abeut town.? Time only will tell whether they are among the living or dead. Among the rains we noticed a number of iron safes that fiom appearance were of no value to the persons who had placed dependence in them iu time of need. The money and papers of the old Pittsburg Bank were removed, on Friday, to the old U. S. Bank, on Fourth street. We hear more favorable accounts from our Insurance offices, after an investigation of their losses After com paring notes we feci authorized to say, in general terms, that the offices in this city as a whole, will pay a very large per ceutuge on all their risks. The whole amount insured by them is ahout $800,000, and at the very out side not over $850,000. Their capital in the aggregate will cover up a large proportion of this amount. The affairs of the Penn Company are in a better train than was believed, and they will pay a large per centage on their risks. The City Regulator informs u? t'-.atthe burnt district covers filty acres in thu city, and six acres out of it. Laborers, brick makers, bricklayers, carpenters, pins lexers, lie., can now fiud immediate employment in this city in laige numbers. tfdme laborers are already asking exhorbitant wages. Dju't give them. There will be plenty herein asheit time, ami tiien those who would take advantage of the ne cessities of the contractor^ and Merchants, can be marked ;ind refused work altogether. A committee appointed by the Councils, after a fnll examination of tbe burnt district, having minutely visited overy part ot it, have arrived at thu following results : 99-i buildings burnt, value, $1,666 500 V;lue personal property burnt, 913 160 $3,479,960 This docs not include money or personal pro party of y.->ung men or persons not keeping house. In calculating the value of real estate, the committee have > stimaied the cash value of the improvements as they wtre before the fire, and not what it will require to repair or rebuild them, which must exceed the above estimate at least 25 per cent It is now feared that many persons loat their lives in the iwoent terrible conflagration On Sitnrday we men tioned that 8. Kingston, Esq., and John Johnston, wore missing, and that lears were entertained for their safety. It is now pretty certain that they were burned?Mr. K at the house of his son-in-law, W. R Lackey, ?ud Mr. J at McKenna's auction store or in Pipetowa. A girl employed in the lionse of Mr. Lecky, above namej, who was supposed to have boon ussining Mr Kingston in saving goods, is also believe! to have b?en burned. Margaret Denning, a woman living at Ocorge Beale a, is misaing; believed to be burned. Mrs. Jane Wyatt, an aged woman, who lived near the corner of 2d and Ross streets, ia alse supposed to have been burned. Mrs. Maglone, an nged woman who lived near Orand street. Mrs 8.

In the commotion and boiling over among mortals^ we are particularly prone to notice the efferves cences of those wko bubble around us, and we must "shoot tolly as it flies," else, when its em bodiment, or one of these bubbles burst?, its vain and volatile gas is lost irrecoverably among the realms of ether. It would be lamentable if all of them were allowed to stamp their numerous foot prints on history's page, but a wise distinction per mits tham to exist in notes and journals; and hough our burg is not large enough, or its events important enough to attract much oi your notice, still, occasionally, we hove family scenes which "open rich." We will mention at this time a little local news only. If during general elections the whole coun try will prop their eyelids with straws to watch for (lie slightest quiver ot the body politic, shall we en quire " whence all this agitation? tation?tation," when the place wherein we live and move, and have our being, exhibits by its twitched nerves, ? hose symptom? produced by the galvanism of a town and county election. In such local conten tions we have all the tun and excitement without the more abiding mortification,which is the fate of une of the parties in a general result. The bark of our Corporation has just passed through the winds <?) a Mayoralty vote, and on the 23d April the ship of the county, with i;s parties, is to risli the break ers and breast the surge of a popular excitemcnt more extended and important. We had three can d dates for Mayor, and never was a more trium phant achievement and decided vindication of po pular taste. The defeated brought to bear a piece of ordnance, which they imagined the uilima thiUt of parly move?the springing of a Texas ques tion. But it was "no go"?you know how the coonskin move rose anti and worked pro General Harrison; so in this case did they endeavor to draw " the skin" before the public eye? to hide the good qualities of the victorious candidate. They took ao warning trom the old song of "the Plenipoten tiary from the Barbary States " else they might h '.ve expected to sea such an indictment turn to a (-commendation For the information of denizens, wn would add that we imve adjoining our Corpo ration two villages, with the e.uphouius titles of Texas and J ibeny,and the move against the victor, s'nrted by his opponents, was one impeaching their o'der and honor, it pleased us to see it, tor know i?g that the trite saying, " there's nothing in a name," had been so recently practically refuted in the election of Texas, Jackson and Polk, wa felt assured that "Io Triumphe" would be. blazoned on any banner which I-ore the cabalistic aims of T-xas. This county in a sample of many in Virginia, at this time?the dominant party having two cornpeti 'i rs. The whigs have h majority, but so email that intestine irregularity and a Hushed democracy will render it but ephemeral; and the distinctive traits of the loco species are broauly visible here, ia the fact that they concentrate their might ard steer their political bark, by only one Gynoenre. Thi# county is alao an exception-Mr. Lorinan Chancel lor, one o( the whig candidates ro represent it in Sia'e Legislation, will be elected. He in a young pentlemnn yet?else a description of him would be i superfluous to you as to describe Gen. Jackaeo, or to inform the people that J. G. Bennett was no tool. He 'una independently, in opposition to tke regular nominee of a convention, whose iniquiteus and iniquitable procetdurea he properly exposes ia hid electioneering speeches; for when m the course < f human events it becomes necessary for s few to speak fur rruuy, that few must be held responsible whenever they elect to substitute their dictum lor the people's high WeheBts; and to add another voice against these old breeches wirepullers of self constituted conventions, as well as to name the ineiitsof Mr. C., is our chief aim at this time So plainly does he expose them, that the regular no minee can now command only the conventional vote, and as Mr G's personal popularity has pros elyted about 120 of the opposite i>?riy, his election is certain.

He has a power el sarcasm and lorce of il lustration which we truly believe ansurpumble, and we remark regarding the mysterious spell of his eloquence, that Patrick Henry is numbered among his ancestry He has been, hitherto, only a deep student and observer, but now the chrysalis is burst, "he ia bound to shine." We predict for him, in due time, the richest showers of glory from his country, and that the evergreen garland of its Ivehest approval will encircle his intellectual brow.
