Balaam's Museum Earned to the Ground!
vE sTK rcTION OF THE GRHA TEST MEN
AGERTK IN THE WORLD'
■SKW YORK, July 13.—A fire broke out in
Barnum's Museum, and extended rapidly to
q ie adjacent buildings on Ann and Fulton
streets. The Museum was totally destroyed.
A large number of the other buildings are also
total losses. A New York paper gives the
following graphic account of the burning of the
OIK REPORTER'S VISION OK I.IKE AND DEATH.
Our reporter fortunately occupies a room on
the north side of Ann street, corner of Broad
way, the windows of which look immediately
into this compartment; and no sooner was he
apprised of the tire than he repaired there,
•.ontident of finding "items" in abundance.
Luckily the windows of the Museum were un
closed, and he had a perfect view of almost the
entire interior of the apartment. The follow
ing is his statement of what followed, in his
CONTUSION AND STRUGGLE IN THE MENAGERIE.
Protecting myself from the intense heat as
well as I could by taking the mattress from the
bed and erecting it as a bulwark before the
window, with only enough space reserved on
the top as a look-out, I anxiously observed
the animals in the opposite room. Immediate
ly opposite the window through which I gazed,
was a large cage containing a lion and lioness.
To the right hand was the three-storied cage,
containing monkeys at the top, two kangaroos
in the second story, and a "happy family" of
rats, cats, adders, rabbits, etc., in the lower
'I o the left of the lion's cage was the tank
containing the two vast alligators, and still
turther to the left, partiaHy hidden from my
sight, was the grand tank containing the great
white whale, which has created such a furore
in our sight-seeing midst for the past few weeks.
Upon the floor were caged the boa-constrictors,
anacondas and rattlesnakes, whose heads wottkl
now and then rise menacingly through the top
of the cage. In the extreme right was the
cage entirely shut from my view at first, con
taining tiie Bengal tiger and the Polar bear,
whose terrific growls could he distinctly heard
from behind the partition.
PROGRESS OF THE FLAMES.
The conflagration was, yet, confined to the
upper part of the building. The lower walls,
however, were becoming rapidly heated, and
all of the nnnimais began to manifest much un
easiness. The white or silver fox ran up and
down his cage, whining piteously and endeav
oring to escape. —The lions also paced hurried
ly up and down, moaning most dismally, and
all the other beasts manifested similar uneasi
ness. The serpents stuck their heads up a
bove the rill of the window and writhed about
in strange contortions.
When the fire had eaten its swift way down
to the third floor, and the lurid glare burst
through the transoms of the doors, the panic
among the beasts became positively fearful.
They sprang against their iron bars and strove
to reod ihcin with their teeth, at the same time
sending forth savage and frightened cries
which were almost human in their agony. At
length, when the flames burst through the top
of the door and commenced to lick the tops of
the cages, the tumult reached its height. Y'ells,
roars, howls and screams went up from the
loomed brutes, which were heard to the distance
f half a mile.
SELF-EMANCIPATION OF TUE LIONS.
With a simultaneous bound, the lion and his
mate sprang against their bars, which gave way
and came down v. itii a great crash, releasing
the beasts, which for a moment, apparently a
mazed at their sudden liberty, stood in the
middle of the floor lashing their sides with
their tails and roaring dolefully.
FliißT DELIVERANCE 01' ANIMALS.
Almost at the same moment the upper part
of the three-storied cage, consumed by the
flames, fell forward, letting the rods drop to
the floor and many other animals were thus set
Just at this time the door fell through and
the flames and smoke rolled in like a whirl
wind from the ITadean river Cocytus.
THE LION AND TIGER IV CLOSE CONTEST.
A horrible howl in the right-hand corner of
the room, a veil of indescribable agony, and a
vruriiing, grating sound indicated that the tiger
and polar bear were stirred into the highest
pitch of excitement. Then there came a great
crash as of the giving way of the bars of their
cage. The flames and smoke momentarily roll
ed hack, and for a few second s the interior of
the room was invisible in the lurid light of the
flames, which revealed the tiger and the lion
locked together in close combat.
PARTICIPATION OF THE SERPENTS.
The base of the rods of the serpents' cage
had also crumbled; and the largest boa-con
strictor—about 20 feet long and as thick as a
man's body—was also engaged in deadly strug
gle with the lioness.
TIIE POI.AR BEAR IN A WARM PLACE.
The polar bear had shrunk to the coolest cor
ner, with half his fur burnt from his snowy
oat, and there sat wondeiingly gazing upon
the 9cene before him. Accustomed, as he had
!*on, to deal with only the walrus and the seal
in the cold blue waters of the Arctic regions,
he was evidently considerably alarmed at the
excessively torrid scene, which was blazing
through the room. Lnder the circumstances
fie found it impossible to take it coolly.
THE SNAKES AND MONKEYS IN TROUBLE.
The monkevs were perched around the win
dows, shivering with dread and afraid to jump
'JU(t. The snakes were writhing about, crippled
and blistered by the heat, darting out their fork
ed tongues and expressing their rage and fear in
the most sibilant of hisses.
THE HAPPT FAMILY BAPTIZED WITH PIKE.
The "Happy Family" were experiencing an
amount of beatitude which was evidently too
cordial for philosophical enjoyment. A long
tongue of flame had crept under the cage, com
pletely singing every hair from the cat's body.
The felicitous adder was slowly burning in two,
and busily engaged in impregnating his agonized
system with his own venom. The joyful rat
had lost his tail by a falling bar of iron ; and
the beatific rabbit, perforated by a red-hot nail,
looked as if nothing would be more grateful
than a corner in some Esquimaux farm-yard.
The members of the delectated convocation were
ail huddled together in the bottom of their cage,
wh;rh suddenly gave way, precipitating them
out of view into the depths below, which hy
thi time were also blazing like the fabled To
CONTINUATION OK THE STRUGGLE,
i Meanwhile the lion anJ the tiger were con
tinuing their contest now with the advantage
on one side, now on tiie other; and the boa
was slowly tightening his fatal coils round the
panting body of the lioness, which, however,
bit and struggled, lacerating the striped skin
of its adversary terribly. The floor was already
crimson with their blood, while the comming
ling hisses, howls, yells and roars utterly surpass
ed all efforts at description.
THE WHAI.ES AND ALLIGATORS IN TORMENT.
At this moment the flames rolled again into
| the room, and then again retired. The Whale
and alligators were by this time suffering dread-
I ful torments. The water in which they swam
| was literally boiling. The alligators dashed
j fiercely about endeavoring to escape, and open
j ing and shutting their great jaws in ferocious
; torture; but the poor whale, almost boiled, with
j great ulcers bursting from his blubbery sides,
■ could only feebly swim about, though blowing
! excessively, and every now and then sending up
great fountains of spray.
! At length crack went the glass sides of the
I great cases, and whale and alligators rolled out
! 011 the floor, with the rushing and steaming wa
ter. The whale died pretty easily, having been
pretty well used up before. A few great gasps
j and a convulsive flap or two of his mighty flakes
| wore his expiring spasms.
One of the alligators was killed almost im
mediately by falling across a great fragment of
j shattered glass, which out open his stomach and
| let out the greater part of his entrails to the
: light ot day. The remaining ailigator became 111-

Mrs. Anna Swann, was only rescued with
j the utmost difficulty. There was not a door
! through which her bulky frame could obtain a
! passage. It was likewise feared that the stairs
j would break down, even if she should reach
I them. Her best friend, the living skeleton, stood
j by her as long as lie dared, but then deserted
her, while, as the heat grew in intensity, the
i perspiration rolled from her face iq little brooks
j and rivulets, which pattered musically upon
the floor. At length, as a last resort, the em
ployees of the place procured a lofty derrick,
which fortunately happened to be standing near,
i and erected it alongside the Museum. A por
tion of the wall was then broken off on each
side of the window, the strong tackle was got
! in readiness, the fat woman was made fast to
j one end and swung over the heads of the people
j in the street, with IS men grasping the other
extremity of the line, and lowered down from
| the third story, amid enthusiastic apolaase. A
carriage of extraordinary capacity was in read
iness, and entering this, the young lady was
driven away to a hotel.
CI.OSE OK THE THRILLING SCENE.
At this moment the floor, undermined by flame,
gave way with an awful crash, and the living,
i struggling, howling, writhing mass was launch
ed into a gulf of red and yellow fire, sending
tip a whirlwind of smoke, sparks and cinders to
j the very heavens.
The last object I saw was the polar bear up
on a white-hot square of sheet-iron, with till the
hair burned from his side, and standing dark
i and stiff, and rapidly baking brown,
j Before the whale went down with the rest a
stream of spermaceti ran from his carcase down
the sides of the building, taking fire and making
j impromptu candles on a colossal scale.
A RUMPUS is threatened in the Republican
ranks of Allegheny county. Prior to the late
j convention, the Republican organs, editorially
j and by communication, demanded that a new
i delegation, composed of able mc-a, should be
! sent to the Legislature. It was alleged that
| inferior men had been sent to Harrisburg for a
number of years, and that in many instances :
the element of honesty was sadly deficient. The
soldiers, it was claimed, had a right to be re
cognized throughout in the construction of the
ticket, and many promises were made that their
I services should be rewarded by political pro
j When the county convention met all the old
j wire workers were on hand, and managed things
! to suit themselves. Four of the former dele
! gation were nominated for the Legislatare, and
J the ticket, as a whole, has but little of the
j "poiup and circumstance of glorious war" in
the shape of soldier norfirineos. These, and oth
er things have created .dissatisfaction. The
Leader, a weekly paper published in Pittsburg,
devoted to "universal liberty," raps the other
Republican papers for now being quiet, "al
though they made loud professions of interest
in the soldier for the offices before the meeting
of the late County Convention." It states
I that measures are in progress to hold a soldier's
i County Convention some time 111 July or Au
! gust, for the purpose of nominating an entire
i soldier's ticket.
There is another feature which promises to
Jbe prominent in the contest. A Temperance
1 lieague has been organized, and a committee
appointed to interrogate all candidates upon
I the subject of a revision of the license laws.
! If they "refuse to toe the mark," a temperance
ticket is threatened.
Between gunpowder and cold water the pres
ent nominees have a warm prospect before

i Excitement at Charleston—Fight Between
White anil Colored Troops—One J\lan
Kilted and Three Wounded—The Color
ed Troops Dispersed by the Zouaves.
[From the Charleston Courier, July 10.]
i On Saturday evening a very serious distur
bance took place in the market, causing a great
i deal of excitement, and resulting in the killing
of one man (colored) and wounding of three
j others, a Zouave and two c jiored men. The
I particulars, as reported, are as follows;
A small squad of Zouaves had been ordered
on police duty at the market. One of them,
while patrolling the middle market, oarae into
collision with & party consisting, it is said, of
a number of the 21st IT. S. C. T., and the ofth
Mass. Vol. (colored), in addition to a number
jof outsiders. The Zouaves sent for assistance,
i when the squad came up, and afterwards the
j whole company on police duty arrived from
their quarters at the Pavilion Hotel, when the
market was cleared.
In the melee which occured previous to the
arrival of the company, the colored soldiers
fired a volley among the crowd, killing a well
known, respectable colored man named James
Byng, badly wounding in the head Corp. Bie
try, of the Zouaves, and severely wounding two
other colored men. In the fight stones and
bricks, &c., were liberally used. The unfor
tunate deceased, at the time he was shot, was
at his stand engaged in selling eggs The Zou
aves, after the volley, made a charge, dispers
ing the colored troops.
It is reported that the corporal of the 54th
Mass. who marched his squad to the market
without orders, was intoxicated, and has been
put under arrest. He claims that he went
there to qtieli the disturbance.
During Saturday night several disturbances
oecured in other portions of the city.
On Sunday afternoon one of the Zouaves,
! it is stated, was imprisoned in a store on King
| street. A party of his comrades hearing of it
' started to release him, and, on reaching the
place, broke open the door. This led to an
other excitement and another collision was
threatened. It fortunately passed off, however,
with no other demonstration than one shot,
fired by a Zouave, at a colored man, the ball
passing directly over the latter's head. The
imprisoned comrade had been released before
! their arrival.
General Hatch, who was riding by at the
time of the disturbance, was very active in
; dispersing the crowds and preventing any large

GRAFT—HOFFMAN.—On the 13th inst-, at the

Isaac Konsinger, Esq., Mr. William Graft, (for 4
years a soldier in the service ot the United Stales)
to Mis Julia Ann Hoffman.
A FEW REASONS WHY THE
IS THE BEST.
It is made on the best principle, while the foreign
watch is generally made on no principle at all. The
foreign watch is mostly made by women and boys,
av HAND. While their labor is cheap, t*heir work
is dear at any price. Such wa?o!ie g re made with
out plan, and said without guarantee. They are ir
regular in construction, ana quite as irregular in
movement. They are designed only lo sell, and
the buyer is the party most thoroughly sold. Those
who have kept "ancrte," "lepineg," and "Swiss
levers" in profe.'sed repair foi a few years will ap
preeia'e the truth of our statement.
THE PLAN OF THF. AMERICAN WATCH.
Instead of being made of several hundred Jlltie
pieces, screwed together, the body of the American
Watch is formed of SOLID PLATES. No jar in
terferes with the haimony of its working, and no
sudden shock can throw its machinery out of gear,
j In riding or any business pursuit, it is all held to
gether as firinly as a single piece of metal. It is
just what all machinery should be—
-Ist. ACCURATE. 2d. SIMPLE. 3d. STRONG.
We not only secure CHEAPNESS by oui system,
but QUALITY. VVe do not pretend that our Watch
can be bought tor less money than the foreign male
lelirvts, but that for its real value it is sold for one
h.ilf the price.
OUR SOLDIER'?) WATCH (numed Wm. Ellery)
is what its name indicates—Solid, Substantial, and
always Reliable—warranted to stand any amount of
Marching, Riding or Fighting.

OUR LADIES' WATCH, recently brought out,

THE PROOF of the merits of our Watch may be

still unable to supply the constantly increasing de
OUR THREE-QUARTER PLATE WATCH is
thinner and lighter than the others we have descri

justed to correct the v irietioo caused by changes of
temperature. These watches are the fruits of the
latest experiments in chronometry, and are made
by our best workmen, in a separate department of
our fictory. For the finest time-keeping qualities
they challenge comparison with the best works of
the most famous English and Swiss makers.

ALLCOCK'S POROUS PLASTERS.—How many
persons, from stepping on a piece of orange peel,
have been lamed for life. A case which might have
been ot this kind has just been brought to our no
tice. A gentleman, from placing tbs heel ot" nU
boot on a piece ot orange peel, was suddenly thrown
down, and violently sprained his knee. He was six
months confined to the bouse, though he had the
best medical advice. As a last resort a very emi
nent physician was called in to see if anything more
could be done. Alter examination he said, "My
opinion is your knee will never be bent again."—
He recommended that the whole leg and knee should
be encased in a plaster of Paris bandage, which
would accelerate the permanent stiffening of the
knee, and said, "the sooner it was done the better."
But the pitient, before trying this application and
having a stiff' knee for life, enveloped it in our po
rous rlasteis, and in less than two months his knee
was perfectly cured.
