Fire Hi the Shop of the PMW. and n. Rail
road Locomotive mart Other Property
Th Wilmington Commercial of last evening
Shortly after 12 o'clock to-day. a Are broke
ont In tbe kindling-wood shop of George V.
Bush, at the southeast corner of Water and
French streets. It was quickly communicated
to tbe oil Btore-bouse of tbe P., W. and B. Kill
road shops, which stood immediately adjoining.
(Tbifl was tbe general understanding, but It is
stated to us by Mr. Bush ana others who
were promptly at hand, that the Are began in
tbe oil-house itself.)
The flames spread with great rapidity, and in
a few moments caught tbe roof of the locomo
tive round-house, which adjoined the oil-house,
and speedily pet fire to it uud to a number of
locomotives which stood in it. These Are be
lieved to have been about fifteen in number,
nor.e of which were removed. All these were
botfly burntd, though some escaped more than
The Fire Department was promptly on the
pround, but the largo force of men employed in
the Miops were just at dinner Attempts were
made to 6ubduo the flames in the oil house, but
it was stored with a largo quantity of oil, UMo.v,
waste, etc., and burned with the greatest fury,
throwing out immense volumes of blaen smoke.
Tbe large otlico of George W. Bush soon caught
fire, and was destroyed.
Efforts being at "length mostly directed to
cuttine off tbe fire, at the point where the
round-house adjoined the general repair shops,
the flumes were checked about half-past one
The lofs is heavy, but as most of it conshts In
the damage done to the locomotives, the extent
and character of which can only be ascertained
by machineets, upon a thorough examination,
we can give no estimate approaching accuracy.
The whole loss, however, will probublv b3 from
$50,000 or $75,000. Of this wo estimate 'J ,0v)J
to be on the locomotives alone, the remainder
being on Mr. Bush's oiliee, kindling-wood shop,
and contents, his sloop (which was damaged as
she lay at tbe wharf), and ou the oil -house, pattern-shop,
round-house, nnd otbore injured
property, belonging to the railroad compmy.
Our estimate of the damage to the locomotives
will appear low to mnyvho were present at
tbe fire, but it in based on a hurried inspection
made by one of the company's oflieers.
Mr. Bush is fully insured. All his b.ioks were
saved out of his ollice.
Mr. Ferry, master of machinery la Wilming

By the time of their arrival, ho sever, the tire

The Commercial also has the following:
Last night some villains entered 8 lint IVter's
Roman Catholic Church. Sixth aud West street,
and proceeded to ransack it for valuables. They
stole the cups of two gold-plated chalices, two
eoborlums, one gold and one silver, two gold
patents (a port of plate u?ed in connection with
tbe cnaiieee), ait uewg articles used m mo sacra
ment of "i he Lord's Supper," a admluistered
by that church. They also broke up a gold
plated chali'.'e, nnd, finding it to be plated, Hung
it contemptuously on tbe lioor. They then pro
ceeded to the boxes in tho vestibule, Into which
contributions for the poor aro dropped,
rilled them, and made their escape with their
booty unobserved. Tho candlesticks and other
decorations of the altar were undisturbed.
Meeting of the Board ot Directors at Tren
ton A New Oltrr.
The lea?e of the united railroads of New
Jersey to the Pennsylvania Railroad Company
was submitted yesterday to the Lnltcd Board
of Directors at Trenton. The committee to
whom the matter had beeu coniided had a meet
iner on Saturdav in Philadelphia, in conjunction
with a similar committee from tba Pennsylvani
Comranv. and after eleven hours of debate an
tho provisions of tho lease were finally agreed
UDon. Their work was approved by tho Direc
tors of tbe New Jersey comDauios yesterday.
and the ineetiug adjourned to give the Com
mittee time to make the required alterations
The directors will then have another meeting
after which tho lease will be submitted directly
to the stockholders.
Before the meeting adjourned yesterday an
offer was received from another powerful com
pany, submitting proposals quite as favorable ai
those made ty the rennsvivania uemrai, otter
Sue. in addition, a bonus "of nearly 1. 000,000
This offer will, of course, affect materially tho
negotiations, but the matter will now rest with
the stockholders. If the lease to the Pennsyl
vania Company is rejected by them, the second
offer may receive consideration. The amount
of property to be transferred is of a value of
40,000,000, embracing railroad lines and canals
that cover seventeen out of the twenty-one
counties of the State. A". X. Tribune lo-aay.

Depomt, 'N. Y., May 9. It has just been
made public here that an attempt was mida on
theJn'gAt of April 30 to throw the express train
No. 12, on tbe Erie Railroad, off the track neir
this place. The train was descending the sum
mit grade and approaching this station, when at
Seward's crossing it ran into some obstructions.
Its weight and speed, however, overcame the
resistance, and the danger was escaped.
The watchman at once began removing the
obstructions, when be was assailed by a shower
of stones from the wood on the side of the road,
and compelled to abandon the work and procure
assistance. The train was more than usually
heavy i and contained the directors' car, npoa
which were Wessrs. Gould and Fisk, and several
division superintendents, on tbe way to the city
to assist in making anew time-table. If the effort
bad been successful It would have been attended
with a great loss of life. The grade here is

was from forty to fifty miles an hour.

Special Despatch to The Evening Telegraph.
Washington, May 9. The seml-efflcial sy
nopsis of the Anglo-American treaty published
by authority of the State Department this morn
ing Is variously commented upon. The English
Commissioners were opposed to making any of
the provisions of the treaty public, for the rea
son that they feared it would bo unfavorably
received by their Government. Many of tho
points of the treaty having lound their way into
tbe newspapers, despite all efforts to prevent It,
and seme of them having the effect to prejudice
the public sentiment against it, it was deemed
advisable by the American Commissioners to
make the statement published this morning.
There are three points in the treaty likely to
meet with opposition:
First. The manner of adjudicating the Eng
lish claims.
Second. The virtu il revival of the reciprocity
treaty of 1S54 with Canada.
Third. Tbe arbitrament of the question of
payment of money for tho fishery privileges.
Tho two latter, it is understood, will be
strongly opposed by New England and Western
Senators. Mr. Sumner only received a copy of
the treaty yesterday, and, of course, has not
had an opportunity of determining what course
he will take. He will not oppose the treaty as
a whole, but will insist upon amendments to
those articles which do not meet his approba
tion. He will be supported in this by a suffi
cient number of Senators to amend it in several

consider it, on account of its great length and
of the many important questions involved.
