The engine No 4 was first at the scene of destruction, followed immediately by Nos. 6,7, and 2, all of which were drawn more than three miles, through sand, in many plaoes more than knee deep. Mr. An. drew B. Hodges. Ex-Cblef Engineer of the Williamsburg fire department, prompted by a sincere regard for the welfare and interests of his neighbors, chartered a steamboat, and bad the remaining engines brought where their efforts were sensibly felt. The energetic firemen of Williamsburg were not less active tban their conduct upon the occasion was noble. Engine Company No 13, of New York, was present at the tire, and not No. 30. as stated yesterday. INCIDENTS OF AND AT THE FIRE. The funeral ef Mr Edward Crowley, who was killed in Brooklyn, while the fire was raging, by being run over by engine No. 20, took place yesterday. The remains were taken to the Catholic burying ground, near Williamsburg. They were acoompanled by the Washington Volunteers, of which he was a member, a number of firemen, and a large train of citizens. New York Firemen.?Another evidenoe of the efficient service rendered by the New York firemen will be found in tbe following communication, which speaks for itself, and needs not comment, Sept. II. 1848. I take this method of calling attention to the welltimed services of Jour New York firemen in our late disastrous conflagration; although,where all behaved so nobly,it Is ptrhaps improper to point out the particular services of any single company. The citizens of Brooklyn bare much to thank your firemen for, and it was to the exertions of Hose Co. No. 26, that I am indebted for the safety or a large and valuable stook of watches, jewelry, ho., upon which I bad not a penny of insure net. When the fire bad reaohed within a few doors of my store. 1 called upon the members of that oompany to aid me. hoping to be able to save some of the most valuable of my stock. Owing to their exertions, eTery article in my store was safely removed to the distance of half a mile from the store, the greater part of which, without their timely assistance, would have been destroyed by the fire, or purloined by the horde of thieves, who ransacked every building to whieh they oould, in any way, gain admittance. Deeming it an net of justice to this company, that their services, which were to myself, and to many others, invaluable, should he publicly noticed, you will, by inserting this communication in your paper, much oblige many giateful citizens of Brooklyn. C. Fire in Newark, N. J.? (>n Saturday morning, a lire occurred in Newark, N. J. The losses were as follows Isaac Nichols, barn, ke.; insured $260 In the American Mutual Fire and Marine Insurance Co., New York, and $200 in the Newark Mutual Assurance Co, which will cover the loss.

About half past five cli ck on Sunday evening, a fire broke out in the extensive stables of the I'nlted States Hotel, at Newburgh. owned by Mr Powell, the proprietor of the steamboat Thomas Powell. There were about forty hortea in tha stables at tho time and several carriages, all of which, however, were got out with little or no danage. Seme hogs were burned. The Fiar on Bittes Hill.?This mountain was still burning on Sunday night, over the whole of the northern side, ever and anon bursting forth afresh as the flames caught upon withered branches or the dry underwood. If a gale, or even a stiff breexe of wind, were to play upon it, the mountain would speedily become one sheet of flame. The Are on the mountains, east ot Klshklll village, has'burned out. About three hundred cords of wood were destroyed. CoNrr.aoration in ^t. Fori*.?One of the largest lumberyards In the city, belonging to Mr. Wm Patrick, situated on Main, between Wash and Biddie streets, was. yesterday afternoon, totally consumed by lire. The loss is estimated at between $18,000 and $20,000, upon which there was an Insuranee of about $6,000. The Are was the work of an incendiary. Several persons, spectators, were severely Injured by the falling of a pile of lumber, In an adjoining yard: their names we did not learn.? SI I.ouiu Htpublican, Sept. 4. Firk at Richfibld, Missourj,?The officers of the Tamerlane, down this morning, report that the large hemp warehouse of J. S. Williams, at Rlchfletd, Mo., was entirely destroyed by tire on the evening of the 2(Hh ult., together with about 76 tons of hemp, and a large quantity of wheat. Ac. The lire Is supposed to baTe originated from the sparks of the steamer Msry Blane, which boat had touched the landing on the evening of the disaster. ?Si. l.ovit A'eir ?<e, !5c)'t.Sd. ====5555=55-5= "W Y ( tNING EDITION.?TU Tht DmU-uc-iIoii or Hie Ocean Monarch, [Krom the Boston Traveller, Sept 9 ] Since the melancholy details we published yester day, we have had au opportunity of conversing with one of the passengers of the Ocean Monaroh, and with another gentleman, well known in this community who arrived in Liverpool the night after the acoident and who took pains to familiarise himself with all tht details of the distressing casualty. Both these gentlemen speak in terms ot reprobation of the conduct ol Cspt. M urdock. We hope, for his own oredlt,andforth? credit of American seamanship, Capt. M. may be able to clear up, satisfactorily, some of the charges made against him. These charges are, that he neglected the ship and passengers, and sought his own personal safety as soon as possible. The spars were allowed tc remain standing, when they might have been cut down AVW1 tkW fallUn lle/tn tka ...n.ies cv# 1 tered upon the deck, caused a great destruction of life.?[From what we know of Captain Murdock we can scarcely credit this? Editor Hfrald.]? Then, again, the five boats belonging to the vessel were suffered to get on Are before they wero lowered, with the exception of two. One of these, in charge oi the first mute, contained only five or six persons. It was without oars: the plug was out of the bottom, and one poor fellow pulled off bis stockings and stopped the hole, and they were obliged to bale out the watei with their hats. The other boat was freighted with some of the crew and passengers, and started for Liverpool. It was asserted that Capt. M. was in this last boat. The first mate's conduct was spoken of in high terms of commendation After having discharged his cargo, he returned to the ship and did what he could to rescue others. Our inlormant remained on the ship six hours aftci the flames bad burst out, and was finally picked up bj the boats of the Brazilian frigate. Most of that time be was standing on one of the braces under the bow by the side of the figure head. While standing there many heart-rending scenes came under his obserTa tion. One poor woman accidentally dropped her chile into the water, and instantly, with the vain hope o rescuing it. leaped in after it, and the last he taw o ber, she was searching in the watery element for hei child. Another hung by her hands from the bow o the vessel, for four hours, her only support besides being a rej.e. which he assisted her in twiniDg arouni her leet. I'Vu n.u r.f U> ../lUn r>?_ .. ? '--1 ,. from Olasgow, was also one of thrilling interest. Mrs Dow had left her friends with much reluctance on hei part, and when she discovered the extent of the ca tastrophy, she became frantic, and netwlthstandinf the tflorts of her husband to pacify her, she leapei into the sea. Her husband followed her, and clasping each other, tbey supported themselves until they weri picked up, and finally rescued. The self-devotion and heroism of the stewardess ii worthy of amoie enduring memento than it will b< likely to receive. Our informant, who was himsel. lifted through the sky-light of the oabin, whioh wai tben so full of smoke as to be suffocating, saw the stewardess passing him, and saying, she 'l must get oui the powder but she perished in the noble attempt tc save the lives of many others. She was a young and beautiful (iritetlc ; and in thus making herself a martyr, she deserves , to be ranked among the Oract Darlings of the race. The Brazilian frigate remained near the butnini veesvl about four hours, and succeeded in rescuing abrut one hundred and sixty persons, yet Captalr Murdoch says in his offloiel account, that he did not see the par* taken by this vessel in rescuing th< sufferers. Our infort snt. from the facilities he had of judging thinks there nust have been as many as two hundrec lives lost, lie is confident that the tire did not pro ceed from tie steerage, but from the spirit stori room, where some persons oonneoted with the ship hac carelessly carried a lamp. Railroad Accidents?Miraci loc< Kscai-es.? On Tuesday last, as a train of several cars, laden with coal, a passenger ear, and a number of empt] bqx cars, from Mt Savage to Cumberland, Md , wen pawing over the bridge near the toll-gate, on the Somerset road, the engineer discovered the bridge givini way beneath the weight of the ears. Having the ad vantage of the down grade, the engineer immediately put on all the steam he could raise. The ooal oari nhBCixl infulv Avar f hn nanllnir efmiAfnva tlin naasar? ger car was nearly over when the mass gave way ; for tunately, however, there was an iron connection witt the car* in front, and altbongh the hind wheel* wen down some two feet, yet the oar was jerked up by th< power of the engine, and the passengers saved. Thi three box cars plnnged In the creek?some twent; feet?along with the fragments of the bridge. Theri was a man sitting on the rear box oar when the alarn was first given. He instantly arose, and running ovei the three cars jumped on the passenger car just ai the last of the box e*re fell into the creek. If thti was a narrow escape, what will be said of the Mowing: Early the next morning, a force was sent down in oars to repair the bridge. The cars were stopped near th< chasm and fastened to the track. At a later hour. John A. Oraham, Esq., who has charge of the Mt. Savag? works, being snxltus to learn tbeexjent of the damag< and to press the repairs, started alone in a small oar tc descend the road. Upon getting under way he found that the break was out of order, and that he oould no! control the car, which was soon going at the rate of 0C miles an hour.' There was but little time for thought not more than four or Ave minutes. To juuip off wai certain death. In this fearful emergency, Mr. Oraham with admirable oomposure, stretched himself at ful length on the bottom of the car, and there calml] swatted the issue. The tale is soon told. The cai came rushing along on the wings of the wind until 1 met the other cars fastened to the track. A collisloi took place. Mr. Graham's small car was dashed to pieces he thrown some ten feet from the traok, and, with th exception of a few bruises, was taken up unhurt! Common Council. Boabd ?f Aldkrmkit.

We present. below, returns from 1H4 towns in this glorious whig State. Caledonia. Chittenden and Lamoille counties are complete. There are yet 68 towns to hear from, as follows In Bennington. 0; Windsor, 5; Addison, 10; Washington, 3; Orleans, 9; Grand Isle, 3; Windham, 3; Rutland, 4; Orange, 4; Franklin. 2; Essex, 0. In the one hundred And eighty-four towns heard from, the whig rote is within three hundred of what it was last year: while the locofoco rote has fallen off four thousand si* hundred and forty-nine, which hare intermarried with Van Burenism. This is a glorious sign, and shows that the whig party stands tlrm amidst all the clamor of the Van Buren party, and will not bow its glorious flront to the footstool of a miserable, corrupt Albany regency.

Sporting Intelligence. Uaiox Coi bib, L. 1.?Trottini..?A sweepstakes and purse of $850, was trotted for yesterday afternoon, by s. in. Jenny Lind, s. m. Nell Gwynne. g. m. Lady i Kmma. b. g. l'assenger, and r. g. Quaker, two mile heats, under the saddle, which afforded as much amusement and speculation as any previous contest this season. The attendance at the course was not so large as was expected, from the fine field of horses that were to contend for the prize, which, however, maybe attributed to two causes: The prudent sporting man is deterred from venturing out, on account of the horrible state of the roads?which, from the absence of rain, are several inohes deep with sand and cn the occurrence of the slightest gust of wind, the dust risee in clouds, sweeping over the island like . simoon in an Arabian desert, enveloping and smothering all in ItB way?almost. The late fire in Brooklyn alto had a tendency in keeping a number of the patrons of trotting at home?pleasure with them being laid on the shelf for the present. The betting was very brisk throughout the day ; but it would have ouxzled a mathematician to have fol. lowed the backers of the several horses, and taken charge or their arithmetic, through all their compli<fkt?d operations. The mameuvertng resorted to by some of the backers of the favorite, after the first heat, was really amusing. Jenny Llnd had been backed against the field?at first at even, and subsequently at 100 to 50 ; but In her scoring, previous to the start, she did not come up to the expectations of her friends, and a number of them left her, and took un Nell Gwynne, her action being much superior to tnat of Jenny Lind. Nell became the favorite against the i field, as Passenger showed lame ; Lady Emma did not | appear to advantage ; and Quaker seemed to be wanting a movement of the spirit. The backers of the field covered nearly all the ofTeri ngs, which amounted to a very large sum. At the end of the first heat, Jenny Llnd having been distanced, operations in the" hedging''line set in ; and the buying off and selling out that followed, would have astonished a Board of Brokers. first Heat?Nell Gwynne drew the inside position, Quaker second, Jenny Lind third, Lady Emma fourth, and Passenger the outside. They came up prettily, all in a line, until near tbe mile distance, when Nell Gwynne was taken up, and the others were stepped. Three more' attempts were made before a start was effected, and then they started all in a heap. Quaker with tbe lead. Passenger seoond, Nell Gwynne and Jenny Llnd side by side, and I.ady Emma behind, she having almost rome to a stand still as the word was f;iven. Going round tbe upper turn, Passenger seetnng to have forgotten his lameness, dashed a head of Quaker, and led him to the quarter pole three lengths or more', the others trailing each other. Nell Gwynne I nlckpit un. ami niunH the (Jnaker nn thn hark ntrwtnh but could not close with Passenger, who kept on at a strong and regular gait. Lady Km ma next overtook Quaker, but soon afterwards bade him good afternoon, showing a desire for more gay rooiety. She, however, could not approach Nell Gwynne, and Passenger kept Nell at a proper distance. Jenny Lind, during all this time, was gradually falling off. and it was evident, before the termination of the first mile, that shabad no ohance of winning. Passenger came to the score on the first mile about three lengths ahead, of Nell Gwynne, Kmma as far behind her, Quaker over a hundred yards further off. and Jenny Lind at the two mile distance stand. Time 2-45. Going round on the second mile, the grey mare, Emma, went very finely, and, closing up with Nell GwyBne, seemed to be waiting for a break from the bay horse, to brush for the lead. Nell was, however, the first to break, and in fact, the only one of the trio during the heat, whlohgave Emma the second filace at the score. Passenger won the heat by four engtlv* in fine style, and apparently more fresh than be was before the start. Time of last mile, 2:43, and of the beat, 5:28. Quaker and Jenny Lind distanced. Sernttrf Heat.?Passenger was now the favorite against the field. The start for this heat was very even, but Pasaenger broke up on leaving the score, and fell in behind Lady Emma. Nell Gwynne being a length in front. They passed the quarter pole all together, in 43 seconds. On the back stretch. Passenger took the lead, passing the half-mile pole in 1:23,a length infront of Nell Gwynne?Kmma well up. Round the lower turn. Passenger opened the gap, and Emma fell off, laying tbem three or tour lengths apart. Com ing up the home stretch, Nell made a brush, and was close up with Passenger at the score, and it was evident from the manner that his rider was shooting him with the 'Pur. that he had nothing to spare. Time of inn unir, 4.1^. buuiu wu iDuat .iuur leugtun irebinil At the quarter pole on the next mile, Passenger broke up, and Nell took the lead. The horse broke a second time on the back stretch, and fell off too far to overtake htr again during the heat. He, howevor, rallied well, and came up the home stretch in a most vigorous manner, gaining on Nell at every step, but flie reached the soore three lengths ahead of him in 2:44%, making the heat in 5:27. 7 Heal.?Nell Owynne's good behaviour in the last heat made her the favorite a second time, and two to one was posted on her winning the stake. The start was good, and they went away at a rapid rate. Passenger took the lead shortly after leaving tne soore, and, da>hlDg finely round the upper turn, passed the quarter pole in 48 seconds, two lengths ahead of Nell Gwynne. Emma being close at her heels. They kept in this way to the half mile, passing that point in 1:24; and there was very little aeviation in their posi tions until tbey reached the home stretch, where Lady Emma broke up, and fell off about fonr lengths. Passenger led to the soore in 2:45. Round on the next [mile. Nell Gwynne kept both the bay horse and his rider hard at work It required the utmost exertion on the part of Whelpley to keep his charge steady; he, however, succeeded, and maintained the lead part of the way up the boms stretch, where he broke, and the game was up. ? Nell then passed him, and led home a couple of lengths in 2:40. making the heat in 5:81. The following is the summary :? Nell Gwynne, 1. Woodruff 8 I 1 Passenger, Jas. Whelpley 1 2 9 T.idv Kmnt.

Cbautauque Chief, Metxger's famous bay; Jack Hosslter, and Lady Jane, both of Chicago, ' ady Jane was the favorite, and heavy odds were freely offered add taken on her against the Held. They got off well together, the Chief having the pole, Lady Jane in the middle, and Jack outside. The first quarter was done in 40 seconds?the mare breaking up badly. The half mile was done in 1 : 18?Jack and the Chief going together. Jack soon took the lead, and passed thejudges stand, about three lengths ahead, in 2 : 32.

Felice Intelligence. Jlrrtil of the Murderer.?'The sheriff, Mr. Ouyon, of Richmond County, brought to this city, yesterday, John Hlalght. the man charged with the murder ef his own wife, by shooting her in the neck with a pistol on the afternoon of Wednesday last, at her residence, No. 101 Hammond street, in this city, from the effeots of which the unfortunate woman died on Saturday morning. The hurband, after the deed, effected his escape, it seems, to Staten Island, where he wandered abont in the woods in a state of mind bordering on in- ( sanity, until pushed by hunger, he applied at the residence of Mr. Kflingbam, near Tuft's Landing, for ( some food, when the necessary steps were taken to secure him. It appears that this wretched criminal , acknowledged to the rhcriff that he shot his wife, but declared tliat he did not intend to kill her, since which tlire he has been wandering about in tDe woods without food. After bis arrest, on Sunday morning, he was conveyed to the Riobmond Jail, where, during the day. he attempted to commit suicide by cutting his throat with a email pocket !%nife, but the edge being Terv dull, it is suppose J prevented his outting deen enough to cause death.

It appears, from the evidence In this case, that Doyle, in April last, went to Mexico ; and before he left he placed the bank book, and the other property, in tbe care and custody of one Bridget Brananan, for pafe keeping until his return. However, shortly after he left, Sullivan called on Bridget, and said he was directed by Doyle to take i charge of the property thus left In her care, Bridget, supposing all to be correct, gave up the property ac- | cordl ngly. A few days ago, Doyle returned from Mexico, and called upon Bridget for his property, when . he was informed that Sullivan had taken the property | away It has since been ascertained that the accused hns drawn the money from the bank, without any I authority from Doyle thus to do so. Justice l.othrop. from the evidence, considering this a clear case of larceny, committed the accused to prison for trial.

It appears that the stags coach and tha cart became blocked up in the street tegetber, when the altercation took Dlnce. about driving on. Drake in older to make him do io, struck Morrison several blows with his whip ; this enraged Morrison, who. In retallstton. seised one of the runs of his cart and struck Drake three successive blows on the back of his head, knocking him senseless on the street. Morrison ' was at once arrested, by "Ulcer Donnelly, of the 2(1 ward police, and conveyed to the station house, and i lacked up. The injured roan was carried to his residence, No. 77 Greenwich street, and medical aid procured.

In excavating, he dug and removed, as plaintiffs allege, a large quantity of the earth In the rear of their premises, in consequence of which more of the earth caved in. and the wall of their house settled down, was cracked and considerably damaged.

The defence set up was usury; that plaintiff charged a shilling a day interest on every $100 This was met by insisting that a former nete of $1500 was taken up, and ithe present note given, together with $600 cash, and that defendant received it from a person named Rillett. The jury had not agreed when the ceurt adjourned. Ilobert A". Kelly, survivor, ?'?. Char E. Poppe.? This was an action to recover $62. The plaintiff gave defendant an order for a quantity of tobaoco, of a particular quality. Defendant wrote to his correai pendents in Havana, to purchase the tobacco; 60 bales were accordingly purchased and sent on here. When | it arrived it was inspected by plaintiff, who declined | to take it, insisting that it was not of the quality ordered. It was subsequently sent to Liverpool, by agreement between the parties, to defendant's correspondent. to be made sale of there; defendant agreeing, as plaintiff alleges, to make no charge, except one per cent, for guaranteeing bis correspondent. When the proceeds were returned, the defendant furnished the account sales, and not only charged one per cent for the guarantee, but Ave per cent for commissions, and retained the same. To recover back live per cent commissions, the suit is brought. The dofenoe was, that the second agreement was conditional, to-wit? mat in caae iif iudkco eoia in isirerpooi at a loss, only one per cent would he charged, defendant reserving to himself the right to charge commissions, (cc , In the event that the tobacco cleared Itself. The account rales received from (Liverpool allowed that, alter payment of all charge* and expense*, It left a nroflt of $1>2, and defendant inflated that be waa entitled to charge the uaual commlaaione and retain thia aun>.
