General Maney was less veeerved. He was elegantly dressed, as were also l.leu taaant Colonel Bouse, Captains McLean and Atkinson.

The Second corps changed poaition to-day. Gen. Han cock, in selecting his headquartors, caused a lachrymose feeling among our commissarlea ana ordnance officers lu ousting tbem from the place they bad made comfortable by a network of evergreens and booths, whose artistic construction far exceeded that of the ancient Scriptural prophet in beauty and luxuriant extent of umbrageous shade. The change, by tbe way, brings tbe Second corps temporarily In reserve; but any needed emergency will quickly find tbem in tha front again. CAPTAIN BALL, Commissary of tbe Third brigade, First division, hat been granted a leave of absence on account of ill health Bis sickness Is tbe result of too close attention to bis ar duous duties, and his Indisposition and temporary ab sence are greatly regretted. He Is one of tbe few com missary officers of tbe army who in time of battle insist on acting as officers on the staffs of their brigade com manders. He baa performed this hazardous duty in nearly every engagement, and has been highly compli mented for tbe patriotism inciting to sucb personal risk and tbe zeal and ability shown in tbe discharge of his self-imposed and perilous duty.

Two days since bo spotted a bounty Jumper who, on ex amination , proved to have over seven thousand dollars Aid in tbo seams of his clothes and boots. A bogus lieu tenant, couiederating with the bounty jumper, is also io limbo, and both promise to have metea them the punish men i they deserve. To day be arrested a bounty jumper with over three thous nd dollars hid in bia cloUiing, and while on his way to the guardhouse the prisoner stole bis pocket book, and subsequently the pocketbooks of Of teen of his fellow prisoners Tbe Major has been laughed at for the smart trick played on himself; but, regarding himself as the winning party, and going on the theory that tnoee should laugh who win, be does not allow him salt to be disconcerted at tbe smiles of friends at bis I expense.

Danger from the Storage of Combustibles. A Large Bended and Free Ware heuse Consumed* DESTRUCTION OF SHIPPING. % Intense Excitement of the Com munity. ACCIDENTS AND INCIDENTS, Ac.. &o. About noon yesterday a Are broke out on Johnson's dock, foot of Joreiemon street, Brooklyn, which for In tensity and rapidity of combustion, anil tbo great Iobs of property Incident thereto, equals anything this city or Brooklyn baa experienced lor many years, and one that will be remembered and spoken of as an era In the history of the city and the life of ibo firemen. The otlgin of the lire is not exactly kn.wn, various accounts being given; but that it was a Urge lire, In volving tbetdeatrucilon of an immense amount or proper ty. is not a nutter of doubt. lbe Qro broke out iu the buildings known as "Scbenck's stores," occupied by Metfsrs. Jackson A Woodruff as a bonded and free ware house, and so rapidly did it spread that men employed In the j/lace had to lump iuto the dock to save their live*. The b.:ude<! warehouse contained vast quantities of nitrate of sod i, wool, hides, gia and various other arti cles of merchandise, and the free stores bad also a large quantity of nitrate of soda, seventeen hundred tons of guano, stored on account of the Peruvian government, sugar and molasses owned by Messrs. Roche Bros* Ac Cof fey, and other goods. The nitrate of soda principally belonged to Messrs. Fab bri & Cliauneey , of No 42 South street, New York, al though other parties were owners of portions The total value of tho nitrate oT soda was over $200,000, and the guano was valued at 1*240,000. As the Gre progressed ami reached the lnflammabli ma terials explosion followed explosion In rapid succession, throwing up the debris to a great height, scattering frag ments of stoue, brleW and wood, and endangering the lives or all in the vicinity. Tho ettect of the concussion was such that the ceilings of houses lor blocks around wore torn down, and hardly u pane of glass was lo't whole. Tbo block bounded by l'urman, State, Jorale man and Atlantic utreota suffered tbe taoat, many stores and shops being almost entirely destroyed. Iu State street, near Court, a quarter of a mild from the dock, tbo windows of a bouse were blown In auil totally destroyed The tenements along Furmau street to Wall streot.ou one side, and Atlantic on the other, were all more or less daniagi d by the falling brick, whlcb after oacn succcs sive exploit? came iown as ihich us hail The residents woo) )><mic stricken. Furniture was thrown Into the street?. Women were running about In the greatest excitement, and children clinging to tbelr skins or carried In their arms, added to the wild excite mcot. lhe fccne as viewed from the Heights, when the fire was under full headway, and explosion alter explosion was startling the neighborhood. was truly grand and exciting in tbo extreme The dense sin ko formed a column reaching s<>me htindre is of leet in the air, the base of it being immense bodies of brilliant (lame, that, even In contract to the uoouduy sun, were glaring to the eyes of spectators. it w. m not long before the river was crowded with tugs, hastening to lbe rescue ol' lbe duet of endangered ves-nls surrounding tho locality of tho lire, and all but one ir two of the sbi^s lying near were re moved from tlie dangerous Vicinity, und anchored in the river. The scene on the wharf at which tbo Kusslan frigate lay moored was a stirring < tn, lor all ..n beard realized the fact that Ibcir naval h una was in dancer, tbo falling sparks, from tho explosloi.a, covering tlie vessel and rendering prompt mes-tires in procuring a supply of waier very neces ary. I he frigate, however, was i-oon taken into the straim and out of danger, hut the excitement ih.it wa< caused was quite a contrast to the monotony of quiet wlncli Iris bluer to markml tho sojourn of the Russian" In Brooklyn, 'J'ho violence of the successive shocks w>s felt even in New York. the vibration shaking tho windows of ell the buildings along 6outb. M'..ter and lYont streets: and when the immense column oi um ko wis bp* n arising thrie was n ru-h towards the wharves, which wero sooa crowded wilti tuousauds of spectators, from the Fallon ferry to ttio lottery. The inhabitants of flae row of dwellings sitoated in rurman street, in the rear of tho burning buildings, rujhed ont of their nooses when the explosions took place, panic stric'tien with fright. Mothers, with tbuir children In arms, ran scream ng through l urro in street . maddened wttn fear; and truly the terrific toarof the llamc.i, th" donse clouds of smoke hiding the sun, and tho shocks from tbo re peated -vplosloos were sufficient to cause a panic. 1 ven those who were out oi danger, stand ng on tho Heights on tbe bridge over Montague street, ran panic stri' keu after the two be.ivl'-st eip!o jure occurred. The South ferry boifs were Urst on the spot, and rendorad prompt and valuable assisianoo to tho shipping; but It was only at great risk that any aieamer ouuid approach the burning I cality, from (ear of tbo explosion of the remaining barrels of saltpetre stored on tbo wharves. At tbo commencement of the flro the dorks were IbicKiy studded with vessels, and hb tbe flames spread so rapidly the greatest exetttoae wore necessary to place tbem beyoi d the reach of danger. All succeeded In get ting towed cut into the stream hut one III latod vessel? a Hamburg brg, named >'a at r arid I'elene, but 1 lely arr vod from Ca|:o, tiavieg on boirdacarg of copper ore. 'lbe flames communicated to tbe ilggiugof tbe vessel, and soon spread to all parte, and as the crew became fi ight eneJ,they deserted her In a bodv, without t ying to save anything on board. As tbe fire reached her hold, with the flames bursting fron all sides and playing ab oil tho ringing, (he sight was grsna, though tnfxvd with a spice ol sorrow at tbe noble vessel left to the oi Try of the devouring e'enient All the ves sols to leowsrd of the burning brig bid been towed out, but these to windward w?t? opt coafidered In danger, end bad n I been mTved but as the feawea ro the brig parted rbe swung eronnd and floated towards a fleet or vessels in Ford's dock, striking bdw on to a lirge vessel, which so jarred on ber masts as tocausc tbem to (opple and after a moment of oesiitatkm to go over ber side. The dsager to the whole Heel was now moat im minent, and threatened most dieastrous consequences, when Assistant Engineer Barr, on rccetTing orders Irom the t'blef . procured a teg, and, making rest to the burning 0?i lowed ber outto the lials uear (.overnors island.

Ihe Huselan frigate, which bad been lying lor tbe past two wocka midway batweon Johnson's aud Kord'a ducks, caused a great deal of consternation to the people in tbe vicinity, some in tbeir fright averring that she wan on Are, and as her guns became heated throwing shells into the city, litis rumor turned out, of bourse, to be uu founded, but the probibleconsoiuences tothecity and shipping, if such bad been the fact, Is most appalling to think of, but fortunately isbe waa soon placed beyond tbe reach of Uie flrn. The conflagration raged from half past twelve until seven o'clock, when it was entlroly subdued, and the dock and violuity presented a mass of ruins desolating in tbe extreme.
