If a general notice had been given of the time of the special train to Ligouia yesterday, there would have been a ver\rmuch larger mim" her to have gone. All contributions from the Second Parish for at 72 Danforth or 170 Cougress streets. The brakeraan, Edward Emery, whe was in jured by the accident on the Eastern railroad near the Kennebunk depot, Thursday, was brought to this city yesterday, and taken to the residence of his brother-in-law,policeman York. His collar bone was broken, and his left leg badly smashed below the knee. The lines of poetry read by Chaplain Bickuell at the cemetery yesterday were written in memory of the late Chaplain Root. Superintendent Leach is entitled to credit for the regularity and safety with which the horse cars were run on the During line yesterday. An immense number of passengers were car ried without accident. Hons. J. H. Burleigh and W. P. Frye are at the Falmouth. An excellent audience greeted the Fays last evening. They give a seance this evening. Nearly every one spoke of ‘ the fated city” yesterday,—said “fated city” beiug Boston.— The grand pluck of Boston renders it invulner able to the assaults of envious fate. The Falmouth House is being painted and “fixed up” gcuerally for the summer cam paign. The evergreen decorations on the fountain in the Park were arranged by Mr. Rundlett, the Superintendent. They were universally admired by all who saw them. The thought fulness of Mr. Rundlett is worthy of all com meidaion. Yesterday was remarkable for the good order and decorum of the people assembled to view the memorial exercises. All men save one rc fainel from getting drunk. Last evening was a cool one and brought a reminder of the good old days of the snow banks. If every day could be Memorial Day what a blessed thing it would be for the morals of the city. There was but oue arrest made yester day. The bridge from Fluent to City Hall is fast approachiug completion. A man from Fore street came into the police station yesterday, and said that a huge dogj many times larger than the wolf hounds of the old country, had severely bitten a small boy, to ward whom the complainant sustains parental relations. Investigation disclosed was small, cowardly and disagreeable to be a lady’s pet, and .that he couldu’t bite because he had no teeth. T lere was but one arrest for drunkenness yesterday. The arrested oue probably decorat ed himself with the juniper berry. Mau.v compliments were passed upon the fine appearance of the militia yesterday. The marching of the Montgomery Guards was es pecially commended. Runaway. —At about 1 o’clock yesterday af ternoon a liorse attached to a lumber wagon came dashing down High street to Commercial, when he upset the wagon, throwing the driver off and up against a building with great force. The team belonged to Messrs. R. Deering & Co., and was driven by William Adams. All that witnessed bis fall supposed that lie was ’’gone up.” as a bystander expressed it; but not quite, for before any one could reach him lie was on his feet in pursuit of bis horse, which stopped soon after lie upset the wagon and its contents. Mr. A. received an ugly cut on the bead that bled profusely besides several biuises. It wasa very narrow escape from resulting fatally. Floral Festival.—None of our readers should fail to attend the Floral Festival which comes off at City Had this evening. 4000 children will participate in the singing. Those who have attended the rehearsals are strongly of the opinion that the affair will be very artis tic and pleasing. The profits of tile enterprise go to swell the Hospital fund, so those who at" teud will not only enjoy a pleasant evening’s entertaiument but will also assist the noblestof our charities. Ferry Village. Tuesday Constable Harford arrested a man by the name of Griffin for an assault on a mate of a vessel last Sabbath evening in Miss Pye’s saloon. He was taken before Trial Jus tice Henley and found guilty, and lined §5.00 and costs. The tine was paid. The Union Brass Band will give one of their popular concerts next Wednesday for the ben efit of the Maine General Hospital. A good time and a large audience is predicted. We understand that the Agricultural Insurance Co. through their agents Douglass and Robin son purpose making Simon Jordan a present— the old gentleman that lost his property through Watson, who lias been found guilty of arson in the Superior Court. When Watsou conveyed the place oack to Jordan the insurance policy was not transferred. A. m MEMORIAL DAY. Orrornfion of tin* Graves - Ceremonies al Calvary, Eastern, Western, Forest City nail Evergreen Cemeteries—Addrcsse* by Pont Commander J. F. Land and Capt. Me Tlabou-Oration by Rev. Geo. W. Rickucll at City Ilall. How sleep i he brave who sink to rest By all their country’s wishes ble-t! When spring, with dew fingers co d, Keturns to deck their hallowed mold, She then shall dress a s Tuan Fancy’s feet have ever irou. By fairy hands theirhneijlternng.^ Bv forms unseen iheir tinge is sung, hem Honor comes, a pilgrim gray. To bless the torf th it wraps their chy, All 1 Freedom shall awhile repair, To dwell a wee, ing hermit there. Yesterday morning opened finely, and bating t! e wind and dust, the day was all that could be desired. The sidewalks at an early hour swarmed with promeuaders, and it was evident that nearly the entire population of the city would turn out to do honor to the memory of the heroic dead who had laid down their lives Hi at the nation might be saved. Flag3 floated fro a all the public and from many private buildings, and floral ornaments were to be seen on every hand. The halls of the Grand Army and the Aimy & Xavy Union, were beautifully and appropria.ely decorated with flowers and banners and pennons. Black and white cam brie festoons depended from the walls of Grand Army Hall, while over the door was the in scription, “Our charge, the nation’s dead.” Many of the Memorial wrpathes were very beautiful, the one intended for the grave of the late Kev. N. \V. T. Root attracting particular attention. At nine o’clock in the morning the various squads of the Grand Army took up the line of march for the several cemeteries, for the pur pose o f decorating the graves. The squad un der command of Senior Vice Commander Iu galls visited the Lincoln tree aad the EASTERN CEMETERY. At the Eastern Cemetery Rev. Mr. Wright of St. Lawrence street church delivered an im pressive prayer. Fourteen graves were deco rated. The last resting places of the men of 1812 were not forgotten. For the Lincoln Tree a beautiful evergreen wreath entwined with roses and lilies, and encircling a Union shield, the stars of which weie daisies, and the pales immortelles and forget-me-nots, was construct ed by the ladies of Bosworth Relief Corps. WESTERN CEMETERY. The Western Cemetery was visited by the squad under command of Junior Vice Com mander S. B. Graves. Rev. A. K. P. Small of State street chureli, made the prayer, prefacing it by a few appropriate remarks. Forty-eight graves were decorated. rOuEaT CITY CEMETERY. The Forest City Cemetery was visited by the sjuad under command of Department Inspect or \V. H. Pennell. Prayer was offered by Rev. B. I). Randall. Thirty graves were decorated. Past Commander J. F. Land delivered an ad dress, of which the following is an abstract: Comrades and Friends: The circling year brings us once more to the observance of our Memorial Day. As we gather around these graves of our former comrades and strew with our tribute of flowers th«ir last resting place, the tender grass pressed beneath our feet is but an emblem of their memory which is fresh in our hearts. We call to mind the dark days of the rebellion when we stood shoulder to shoulder in defence of our coun try s life, and when these who now lie here (and others on whose graves no me morial flowers will be laid to-day) at the call of their country left home and all they held dear to them to meet death, per haps on the battle field, or, harder yet, to see the grim monster stare them in the face through months of disease and pain from wounds and exposure, or the slow lingering torture of those camps of death, Atiderson ville, Libby or Belle Isle, and at last over come, far from home and frieuds, no mother, wife, or sister near to smooth the dying pillow, or speak words of holy cheer, they breathed their last conscious of duty done. These men died but their memory lives and it is indeed a noble tribute that one day out of the year, the nation pauses amid the hurry, the strife, and the bustle of its busy life, and turns a.*.ide to honor the memory ot those w ho in its hour of danger were found faith ful £¥«& W* weiwne yon'to-day then as you come flower laden to honor the dead dear to us and to you, and, as w'e stand around these grten altars, we renew our vows of love and feulty to our country, and resolve that from whatever quarter danger to her may come, we will stand as a breastwork round about her, ready with our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor to defend that priceless heritage which these whose memory we honor to day, left to our charge. To us as comrades this day speaks with admonition which should not pass unheeded Death has been busy in our ranks, and, as we march to the roll of the muffled drum, we are reminded that not many years hence our last march will be o’er and wre shall lie in the dust beside our dead comrades, mustered out! Comrades! Shall we not 60 live that when we come at last to answer at the call of the great Commander i f the Universe we may be received into that Grand Army above, under the banner of the Cross, where all is peace, “for there shall be no more death neither sorrow nor crying.” Let us then cherish that fraternity of feel ing as comrades, that charity which lives even beyond the grave, and that loyalty to honor, virtue, our country, and our God which will make us better in our daily lives and fit us for the life eternal. CAVALRY CEMETERY. The squad of comrades uuder Capfc. Kaler were escorted by the Montgomery Guaids,Capt. McMahon, and the Sheridan Cadets, Captain Sommers, and the Portland Band. They marched to the Boston & Maine station, and there w ith their friends took a train of eight cars and proceeded to the rear of Calvary ceme tery in Cape Elizabeth. After a pleasant inarch through a green lane, the procession took seats in the church, and afterward the’vis iting friends. A solemn requiem was then offered by Rev. Father Callahan, wcariug his black sacerdotal robes. The altar was also shrowded in part with black. Master Owens acted as alcolyte. During the mass the Port land Baud performed several appropriate pieces of music, among which were “Adeste Fid eles,” a rel.gious Andante and the “Dead March” from “Saul.” Bishop Bacon then blessed the memorial wreaths, and delivered a very sensible, patriotic and appropriate address to the assembly. Tli 5 services over, the clergy and friends first proceeded to decorate the grave of the late lov" ed Father De Rose, who liad officiated for the last four years as chaplain on similar occasions. A short “requiescat in pace” was said, and the mourning friends around the dust of the la mented father, shed sincere tears. The quad then decorated all the soldiers’ graves, and three volleys of musketry were fired by the military, the band playing a dirge the while.— The military companies were then massed in front of the chapel and Capt McMahon deliv. ered the following oration, which was received with manifestations of approval: Friends and Comrcdes : The honor of de livering the first oration on these grounds, having been conferred on me, I return you my sincere thanks hoping at the same lime that your criticisms will be light, as you all know my abilities and talent as a public speaker never rated very high. The occasion of our assembling here, is in deed a solemn one; for it reminds us of our duty, not only to our friends and relatives, who sleep here beneath the sod, but also of our dury to our God : For the Scripture obliges us to pray for the dead. Perhaps few of this vast assemblage were not visited, with that dreaded enemy, if it may be called so, death. Fathers and inoiners lost a non or daughter. Husbands their wives, wives their husbands, and chil ur< n t lfir parents And who among US, do I n0t feel haPPy ftnd cheerful when the summer season returns, wuh all its beauty and calling to our minds the graves of the lost ones, for at that season of the year we can bestrew their graves with flowers, and visit them oftencr than the inclement season of winter will permit. And should the graves of the soldier or Bailor be foigotten by the comrades! No,they never can be.for during the thickest ot the fight there was formed an alliance never to be broken excepting by time itself. There are none among our number who had the honor of being enrolled in the Army or Navy of our country, who by chance or otherwise should meet a comrade but would hail him witli joy; and share the half of our frugal meal or couch with him as the case may be. Therefore when they ha e fought the good fight of this world, let us hope that they will be admitted to that Heavenly abode where all our troubles and sorrows end. A little more than twelve years have elapsed since the breaking out of that vile civil war. Yes, twelve years since the peoole of this country were awakened, ns it were from a dream, to realize that it was not imagination but reality. Oh ! how rapidly the news spread throughout the length and breadth of the land. Many of you were culled upon to make sacrifices and nobly did you respond. ► And to-day you have assembled to decorate the graves of those who when on this earth were your pride. Therefore do it cheerfully and orever keep fresh in your memories »t the return o each spring the memorable 30th of May. As that together with praying for them are the tributes that we who remain on tins earth can pay them let us remember the words of the poet. Though lost to sight To memory ever dear. For having fought their last fight they sleep their last sleep, and no sound can awake I them to glory again. The procession then reformed and after pass ing the bounds of the cemetery the usual mu sic was struck up and a return was made to the city. IN THE AFTERNOON at half past one o’clock the military, under command of Col. C. 1*. Mattocks, formed in line on Congress street, and marched to Grand Army Hall, where the line was joined by the Grand Army and the Army and Navy Union. The route of the procession was crowded with, nearly the whole population of the city apparently being out, and many visitors from neighboring towns being preseut. The proces sion formed in the following order and march ed over the published route: Police. Portland Band. Col. C. P. Mattocks, Commanding Battalion. Adjutant M. Adams. Montgomery Guards, 4 men. Capt. McMahon; 1st Lieut. Doyle; 2d Lieut. T H. Gatley. Portland Cadets, si men. Capt. Rubin sou; 1st Lieut. Eaton; 2d Lieut. Colcord. Portland Light Infantrv, 40 men, (.'apt. Fessenden; 2d Lieut. D. P. P. Pride. Sheri lan Cadets, 33 men, Capt. Somers, 1st Lieut. S. .1 Flynn; 2d Lieut. J. Larkia. Mechanic Blues. 50 men, Capt. Pennell; ist Lieut. W. C. Young; 2d Lieut. J. llsley. City Government, Orator of the Day and Invited Guests. uosworrn l o*l jsr*. z. u. A. u., iz:> men, uommander John Yeatnn, Jr. Army and Navy Union, 40 men, Vice President Rice. McLellan (Jade s, 33 men, Capt. E. A. Chase. At the City Building the ranks were opened, and the Mayor, members of the City Govern ment, orator and invited guests received. The procession then marched to the Portland and Rochester depot where a train of eight cars were in waiting for them. Another train,load ed with spectators, was despatched, and the horse-cars on the Deering line were crowded. At the depot His Excellency Governor Per ham joined the company. Long before the arrival of the military* throngs of people were in waiting at the Cem etery. Hundreds of private carriages lined tiie road in front of the entrance. The crowd of people along the sidewalks at this point was so great that it was difficult to move around.— Several ladies overcome by the heat and excite ment faiuted. The train containing the procession reached Morrill’s Corner at about half past three. The line was reformed and the Cemetery soon reach ed. After entering the grounds coctaining the honored dead, a halt was made. The graves were then visited by those to whom had been assigned this sad, yet pleasaut duty, and flow ers deposited above where repose our fallen braves. Among those thus decorated were the graves of Nathan Barker, A. Q. M.; Otho W. Burn ham, Dr. Breslin, Freeman Clarke, S. Q. M. S.; Lieut. Samuel Fessenden, Scott Gerrish, Cipt. Frank L. Joues, Lieut. James Maxwell, four Roberts brothers of the 17th Maiue; Ade line Walker, army nurse, and Lieut. Col. A. Witham. Nor was the late Chaplain Root for gotten. Over his grave were placed his equip ments and a wreath of evergreen around cross ed swords, with the inscription, “G. A. R.,” at the top, and “Chaplain Post Bosworth” at the bottom. After the graves had been decorated the bugle call gathered the comrades into rank again, and three volleys were tired by a detach ment. Prayer was then offered by Chaplain Bicknell, after which the Rev. gentleman read by request the following poem: Tread lightly: as ye gather near, Our much loved Chaplain resteth here; Fought the good fight—his work well done; The Cross laid down—the victory won. Gently, as with martial tread Ye form around our holy dead; Your gifts of love and honor bring— Sweet buds and blnssnts of the spring, To strew where sleepB the coble, brave, A Christian soldier—patriot’s grave. Ye turn asido from life’s highway, To keep this great Memorial Day; To strew fresh flowers o’er the sod:— 'Tis well; they are the smile of God. The perfume or theto flowers will be Ty|*e—of a life of purity. Fragrant with holy deeds of love To man on earth and God above. Soldiers, comrades We seem to hear His clarion notes ring loud and clear, Tim’ dead, he speaketh still to all, Take heed unto the captain’s call. Keep, keep yeur Christian armor bright, With deeds of holiness and ri;ht; So when life’s battle field is won You’ll hear the welcome words “Well done.” Tbs benediction was then prouounced by the chaplain. After a dirge by the band the pro cession was ordered into line and took up its march homeward. It is estimated that there were from six to eight thousand people present on the grouuds during the ceremonies. Good order prevailed so far as we can learn, at all points of the march, and especially at the cem eteries. THE EVENING. At half past seven o’clock the militia, under command of Colonel Mattocks, marched to Grand Army Hall and thence escor ed Bos worth Post to the City Building. City Hall was packed by an audience assembled to listen to the concluding services of the day. The ex ercises of the evening opened with music from the Portland Baud, consisting of the well known “Silver Trumpets,” which did such good service during the war, and the exquisitely ren dered “On Yonder Mountains.” A quartette embracing Mrs H. N. VVetberbee, Miss Alice Carle, and Messrs. John L. Shaw and A. E. Pennell sang, “They died for you and me,” Mrs. John L Shaw accompanying on the piano. A very appeopriate and touching prayer was then offered by Rev. D. II Hannaburg of Pine street church. .After the singing of “After the Battle” by the quartette, Rev G. W. Bicknell, Chaplain of Bosworth Post, delivered the ora tion. The effort was a strong one, abounding in patriotic, sentiment and lofty imagery, and marked thronghouPby a tender regard for the memory of the dead. It will be found in full on our first page. The exercises closed by the memorial hymn. 1 Not Forgotten.” The very general interest taken in the exer cises shows that the observance of Memorial Day is year by year taking a firmer hold upon the public heart. It is to be hoped that the custom of devoting one day in each year exclu sively to the decoration of the graves of our soldiery will never bn permitted to die out, and that the memory of their hardships and their victories will be cherished until the latest day, not in spirit or animosity or insolent triumph, but as a chastening recollection of the fiery struggle from which the nation came out like refined gold from the furnace. Si Peter. The Haydn Asssociation has been exeeeding ly fortunate in securing so competent a corps of artists for its performance of “St. Peter.” The sweet, clear aud brilliant voice, the exquisitely finished vocalization, and refined, expressive and dignified style of Portland’s prima donna soprano, Mrs. H. N. Welherbee are well-known and recognized. Miss Adelaide Phillips, to whom the contral to music is allotted, is an artist whose rich, sombre and thrilling tones, great dramatic power and noble method, place her among the foremost singers of our time. Her fine voice, cultivated to the highest degree; and her large, pure style recall the traditions of the golden days of Song. Mr. George L. Osg-od, the tenor, is peculiar ly fitted for the rendition of the music assigned to him. A personal friend of Mr. Paine, he will enter with enthusiasm upon his task; and his scientific, theoretical knowledge acquired in faithful studies in Germany; his pure, even voice, and thoughtful, unexaggerated singing will be displayed to much advantage. Mr. J. F. Rudolphsen, the basso, is very fa vorably known to the lovers ot oratorio music. His fine, powerful voice; manly and vigorous expression; and experience of the varied re quirements of oratorio singing, will fit him for his important role. Tim Harvard orchestra has for many years enjoyed an enviable reputation for its perform ances of the highest order of orchestral compo sitions, old and new; and has performed in the Symphony concerts in Boston, and elsewhere a great number of overtures,symphonies, etc.,and las furnished the orchestral accompaniment for \ cry many oratorio performances. The merits of this orchestra are well known to Portland audiences, who have several times heard it in conjunction with the Haydn Asso sociation. Of the Haydn Association itself, wo will merely say, that although not so large, numeri cally, as are some other similar societies, we be lieve it to be second to none in musical excel lence. For careful ar.d facile reading, intelli gent expression and fine tone, it compares fav orably with any choral society that we know. With such materials, so fine a composition—to which the personal presence and conductorship of its composer will impart additional interest and eclat—and with the enthusiastic reception, that this enterprise cannot fail to receive from a Portland audience, proverbially cordial and sympathetic, the first performance of the first American oratorio will undoubtedly be emi nently successful. niSGBLLANEODS NOTICES.

Manchester, N H., May 30.- Public atten tion is being aroused to the subject of infanticide which is believed to exist to an alarming en tent. The bodies of two infants have been found within a week. Very little pains seems to have been taken to conceal the crime, though as yet, the police have been unable to trace out the criminals. NEW YORK. The Epizoodic Spreading. New Yohk, May 30.—There were new epi zootic cases among the horses on the Coney Is land railroad yesterday, making eighty-four now sick and several new cases are reported on other Brooklyn city roads. The Credit mobilicr Suit. A Washington special says that it has tran spired that the counsel for the defendants in Credit Mobilier suit will, in a few weeks, file a demurrer to the bill in equity, taking the ground that the act under which the bill is drawn is unconstitutional, and that lawyers cannot enact for the benefit of the government what is denied to individual suitors; that the act is in direct violation of the existing laws under which the defendants have a right to aBk protection; and uutil they are placed en an equality with the plainiiffs there can be no equitable proceedings. This will carry the case to the Supreme Court, where the whole question W'll be argued and the validity of the act determined. It is admitted now by those familiar with the case, that the objection of the defendants may quash further proceedings. Scattering of Thieves. Owing to repeated arrests of known thieves by the police under the new law,there has been quite au exodus of this class. Many of the pickpockets have gone east, west and south. Stealing Legalized. Tboy, May 30.—Three hundred thousand dollars worth of bonds, stolen from the Water ford Bank, have been returned by the thieves, wbo have received 3/5 per cent, and immunity from punishment. Various matter*. The festival of the African Church in Brook lyn last evening ended in a general fight, near ly all participants spending the night in the statiou house. George F. Train was released to-day. The cashier of the Glen Falls Bank identified the bonds found with Brady, the burglar, as those stolen from that bank. During a drunken fight in Brooklyn last night John Burns beat his wife so that she died a few hours after. Investigation shows that the epizootic is con fined entirely to horses of the Cuney Island railroad. The reports that it has appeared on other roads in Brooklyn proving unfouuded. A peculiarity of the disease is that only newly ar rived horses from Indiana are those attacked by Gov. Dix and staff will review the 1st D'vis mn of militia at Union Square on next Thurs day. Kighteen bodies have been found in the river within two weeks. It is believed that but few of the insurance companies of this city will suffer to any extent by the Boston fire to-day. MASSACHUSETTS.

Bumstead Building, Globe Theatre, Chickerlng’g Piano Establishment, Chauncy Hall School, International Hotel, Freeman’s Bank, 9th Regiment Headquarters, and other Buildings De stroyed. Boston, May 30.—At twenty minutes past 8 o’clock this morning an alarm of fire was rung from Box 53, which called a portion of the de partment to the vicinity of 411 Washington street, where it was found that the rear buiid ings of Haley, Morse & Co.’s furniture factory were in flames. These buildings are of the most combusticle character, and so rapidly did the fire obtain control of them that within ten min ■ltes a second alarm had to be sounded,and soon after a general alarm, which drew the whole number of steamers, hose carriages and ladders to the scene of the conflagration. An unusually large number of people were gathered upon the streets at the time to witness the setting off of the Grand Army Posts for the cereteries, and when the fearful news spread that a monster fire was in progress, the crowd was augmented to many thousands within a few minutes. The flames spread with wonder ful rapidity toward every direction, menacing Tremont and Boylston street on the one hand, and coming out entirely on Waihington street ou the other spread of tbe Flnmn. At a quarter before nine o’clock serious fears were felt for the whole of that part of Boylstou street between Washington street and the Com mon, ou the northerly side. The Boylstou Bank building, with the extensive establishment of W. C. Beeves & Co., dealers in gent’s furnish ing goods, corner of Washington and Boylston, and Emerson, Leland % Co., 19 and 21 Boyl ston street, were attacked in the rear fiercely, and seemed destined to fall. It wa3 said, how ever, that a twenty-inch party wall at this point would save the comer, and on this hope the anxious crowd waited. At 9.15 the steeple of the Beach street church caught fire at the top and burned down gradually, The spread of the fire at this point was anxiously watched by residents on Harrison avenue. At about this time, also, the roof of the Globe Theatre caught fire, and the building next to it, known as Arlington Hall, containing ths eat ing rooms of Craw'ord& Co., was found burn ing on the top. Streams were placed by ready firemen on these buildings and tbe roofs well wet down, but the persistent flames retained their hold, especially of tbe Globe building. The Eagle Clothing House, on the corner of Washington and Essex, then began to move their goods, and water was poured upon the roofs in this vicinity like a deluge. The Outline of the Fire. At half-past eleven o’clock tbe cheering intel ligence was sent along tbe lines that the course of tbe fire was probably stayed. The last move ment of the fire department was to concentrate in one or two places on its margin and the ef fort proved successful. Looking over the new burnt and burningdistract the area covered has the following boundaries, and is about four acres: WASHINGTON STREET. vvuiuiriuaiiif^ vii iuc wcjii omc, jusb uciuw Haymarket place, the last number going south is 395, being the building occupied by William P. Emerson, Boston Organ Company. Ex ' tending to the north and at right, angles to Washington street, the fire burned through to a lot of dwelling houses in the court of Hay market place, abbutting the buildings destroy ed on Washington street. Going east aiid southeast it has made a sweep back to Wash ington street without going to Boylston street, falling short of the latter street at Montgom i cry & Co’s confectionery stire, No. 423 Wash ington street. The rear of the new five-story Pilot building, in process of completion, is now within thirty feet of Dexter’s old stable, where the fire commenced, and was saved by dilige nt work of the firemen, carpenters and others em ployed upon it, who used every conceivable sort of hand apparatus. This building is only scorched. Extending to ,tbe east side of Washington street the last number left standing, going south to Essex, is that numbered 340, occupied by Miller piano manufactory and Hibbard & Co. This gives the corner boundary on this side of Washington street at Hayward place. Down H tyward place the fire spread rapidiy, but being confined to the south side. There was great danger that it would be driven bv the gust of wind through to Chauncy street, and it was only after a severe struggle that it was an assured thing that it would not touch the newly occupied warehouse on this impor tant importing and jobbing street, The course of the tire after it had crossed Washington street, was southeast by south, and taking the south side of Hayward place through to the cits of the Chauncy street buildings (which were only scorched some) or the northern and west ern boundary it 8 vept along Washington street to and including the corner of Essex street, and from the foot of Hayward place took all be tween, going south till it reached Essex street at No. 38 the building next below the Globe Theatre. The north side of Essex, between the corner and this building last given, has been covered by the fire. The Staying «( the Fire On the north side of Essex street was one of the greatest acbievments of the firemen. They seemed to have everytbiag against them. The intense heat and flame of the theatre building would sweep down with terrific fury, sending a perfect storm of sparks and brands against the opposite walls of this fifty foot street.' At half past eleven o’clock the whole facade was in names, and the smoke that rolled into this thoroughfare waa almost smothering to the firemen. At one time it seemed as if the whole street musl go, and every instant it look ed that the firemen with their several linesof hose, would be Ihrown back upon Washington street on the oue side, and Harrison Avenue on th ■ other. But they stood it heroically, doing battle from the paveoients, and the windows aud roots of the opfiosite buildings. So intense was the heat, that some of the having to go near the center, had to be playeil upon to their hair and clothing from scorching. By this bold stand and that in the rear of Wash ington street, between Essex and Hayward Place, a great amount of property was saved. The occupants on Cbenery atreet, when they saw the determination of the firemen,felt so se cure that many would not allow their poods to be taken out, and yet they were within three hundred feet of the flames, and under their lee. Such management is worth special reference. Buildings Destroyed. EAST SIDE OF WASHINGTON STREET.

While the store of Haley, Morse & Co. was burning fiercely, the firemen who were working in Haymarket place were suddenly startled by the crush of the rear walls, which came tumb ling upon the dwellings on the north side or Haymarket place. The houses were crushed as quickly as though they had been egg shells, and the thoroughfare was tilled with debris six or seven feet high. The firemen had barely time to escape with their lives, and were compelled to abandon Ex tinguisher No. 1, which was entirely ruined, Officers West ami Coombs were both knocked down by the falling mass, aud barely escaped with their lives. The demolition of the dwell ings referred to gave the firemen a good oppor tunity to check the ravages; of the fire in that direction, aud the fire at that point was soon under complete coutrol. The building number ed (i was also destroyed. ESSEX STREET. The flames spreading to the southward and to the rear of the Globe Theatre building, soon worked ronud into Essex street, and involved the whole north side of the street as far as Chauncy street in the general ruin. At half past ten that entire side of the street was in flames, the fire travel!iug with great rapidity. Though the most energetic and courageous e"f lorts on the part of the firemen, *he conflagra tion was successfully fought, and the progress of the destruction in this locality arrested at noon. At half-past eleven the fire made, as it seem ed, the last effort to assert its power, a perfect sheet of flames rolling up from the burning mass and sweeping across the street, as if to drive before it the firemen on the roofs of the building opposite. Soon after it became evident that the fire was under control, in this section at least. exclusively to the north side of the street, the large granite buildiug on the northeast corner of W shington street, which was saved by the thick brick parti-wall of the Globe Theatre building. Although escaping the fire, the building was flooded with water, which caused extensive damage. The first and second floors of this building were occupied by Alexander Crawford, whose loss will amount to $20,000; partially insured. In tho third stray was the “Arlington” billiard room, the tables and fix tures being the property of Mr. Janies Doyle; the loss in this story amounts to $3500, ou which there is is considerable insurance.
