The board of uaml Commissioners guvs up
the glu st and died n disgraceful death on the
25:h of Jinuitv, 1859. During the last few
days of the existence cf the Bond, says the
Stale Sentinel, some of the oU aud eft reject
ed claims were reconsidered and allowed. In
one instance, so notorious was the injustice to
the State, of allowing a rejected claim for more
than 515000, that the holder could not even
sell his vrarunt, after iic had obtained i% al
though he offered a large discount ! And such
has been the public protest against it that the

BALTIMORE. Feb. 5, 1859.
Mr. EDITOR : —Wo arc having u very mild
; winter here, while they are having snow and
i 4'*-'ighi:g in the north. We have rain and mud,
■ though wc have also had much fine weather.
Taking advantage cf a fair day, we repaired
to the Washington M moment to get a view of
the city and suwououing eountry. In every
direction, the low, dark, forest-covered hills
stretch away in the distance, without any grand
aud lofty mountain eu which the eye may rest,
or to break the monotony of the view. In the
vicinity of the city the country i-- dotted with
farms and splendid country seats, for which the
roliing character of the ground furnishes the
most beautiful situations.
AO the southeast is a good VIEW of the Pa
tapsco, wtth the numerous white sails of ves
sels that ore constantly going out and coming
mto the harbor, with here and there a curling
wreath of smoke from the steamers. Fort Mc
llenty and :ho Light House are seeu :t short
distance below trio city. The principal part of
the city lies south of the monument, and is
spread out over almost us lumy Lills as ancient
lt is only 180 years siaee Baltimore
was luij out, an.J 00 acres of land purchased
at 40 shillings per acre, to bo paid in money, or
tobacco at one penny per pound; and even up
to I<7 o, the mere hunts were compelled to send
ti.eir advertisements to Annapolis or Philadel
phia, there being no newspaper then published
here. Now it is the third city in the union,
: and its population reckoned at a quarter ola
j mii.ion, aud it is now the grejtei-' flour market
in the world.
Adjoining the monument grounds the Pea
body lustituie is in course cf building, and
bid.-i btir to bo a great addition to ttic public
buildings of the city. The j lii and penitentiary
are eeing rebuilt, and the Exchange buildings,
w..ore the Post Office is kept, have been remo
deled and uineh beautified and improved.
One of the greatest curiosities of modern
building, is the eigar-shaped lien steamer,
built by Ross aud Thomas Winans, South Bal-
lt is built entirely cf iron, ISO feet
long, 16 feet wide in t!.e middle, perfectly !
lound, i.nd runs to a point at both ends, alike.
It Ins 4 engines, sn i the p.ddie-whed stands *
ero-swisa in the middle, cutting the vessel near
ly in tw. She is entered by two hatchways on
top, about 30 inches in diameter, and lighted j
by two rows of glass ' windows, (j inches in ui
i aiiuter. She bus Lecu Lut't by iier ingenious ;
and energetic proprietors, us an experiment,
vti'b a view to attain the fastest possible speed
of travel en water, with safety. She cannot
burn, an i loox-j r.s though she might run either !
over or under the waves without danger.-
\Y hcther she :s intended to curry passengers or j
not, we cannot say, but presume not , as ladies i
aie e -natty prohibited from entering, and sure
ly, bow can a fashionably extended skirt pass
through a thirty-inch hatchway? Wo will not ]

A HrsiiANß, WIFE AND SIX CHILDREN ;
BURNT TO ASHES WITH THEIR DWELLING;
HOUSE. — it is our painful duty "to record one :
of the most horrible and distressing Sres and •
loss of life, last tight, that has ever happened 1
in cur country or ci.'ies, accompanied by awful
circumstances. Last evening, cboat 11 o'clock, !
a two story fr&mo house, situated just out of I
the line of Allegheny City, in Reserve township,
and ocrupicd by a man named Rogers, by trade
a carpenter, with his family, caught fire, and
before they could be rescued, he and Lis wife '
and six <--ut of seveu children were burn? ty •
This Rogers and wifo hid, it seems from the
evidence of the neighbors, for sometime given
themselves up to hard drinking, and though he
owned the property on which he lived, yet so
worthless had lie become that the family had
been supported by tbe neighbors out of chari
ty. He and bis wife frequently had quarrels,
ami so common had their quarrels and muses i
become to tho neighbors tout but little aMcn- ;
lion was paid to them.
Screams were heard by the neighbors in tiio
house before tbe fire Was discovered by them. !
but supposing they were, as usual, occasioned j
by a druken fight, and as they were known to j
have been drunk aIJ day, nothing was thought j
cd till ttie flames wore seen. Bit it was too !
late; the father and mother, were consumed in j
the first story, while the cries of poor innocent ;
children, the innocent victims of tbe infernal i
vico of their parents, went up in hopeless ago j
cy from the second story, where the merciless i
fliiues had encircled theui with theit fiery aud ,
fatol wreaths before human aid had reached )
tbetu. Ttie only "tie saved w<s a boy who go' i
ont on tbe porch. j
Ibe house was dry an J burned like a flash.
I AH that human aid could do, was done, but it
*can>e too iafe. The two cities and neighbor-
J boor! are thrilled with horror at this oecur

j the morning. His friends were much alarmed;
as yet, however, the fact bar been kept out of
i he Kansas Gold Wines, &c.
ST. LOUIS, Thursday, Feb. 3, 1859.
Highly flittering accounts of the Kansas
gold initios couliuno to be received. A rich
quartz vein has been discovered at R.UtonV
-1 Fork, 12 miles from Aururia, and shot gold a*
bounds in several localities.
, The Fort Defiance dates by the Santa Fe mail
are to December 21. They says that the Nav

f 500 sheep and horse*, the destruction of 1,000
; huts, and au immense quantity of grain alto

. zette, intimates that there is a disposition to
! deal too harshly with these Indians, at.d says
: that if certain terms are exacted it will turu
. ; them from the pursuits of industry and agri
culture, by which they now support a wbol: ua
tion of 12,000 souls, and sustain 350,000 sheep
j and 60,000 horse*, and mike litem robbers and

A\\ ESTERN IDEA.— An idea about as mag- j
! E'ficent as Mr. Eilm t'* plan of'slack-watering' j
the Ohio, is started by the St. Louis Democrat, ;
It is nothing less than to unite the water® of i
j the Upper Arkansas, the South Platte and the ]
Jvausas rivers, into one stream to fill tho bed '
i of the latter, and make from the three incon- 1
siderable and almost useless streams, oue broad,
j deep, navigable nvt-r, tlwt would open the far ■
West country eiear to the base of tho maun- \
tains, and in'o the new auriferous region®,
. whither emigiotion and civilization is now pow- ;

be equal to the Missouri in magnitude, il.ad'nt i

V*'nr CUBA SHOULD BE AN.VEXBD.—The
| Cincinnati Enquirer gives as a reason why the
people of that city should desire the annexa

Uuion, whiskey, and some offer products nnd
j manufactures of the Buckeye State, wpu'd be
; -mid in that metropolis of potk and strychnine
j whiskey, aud shipped to Cuba. This we con
sider conclusive. The most bitter opponent of
Buchanan's administration must acknowledge
; tie cogency cf this argument. Cuba must t-e
annexed, if Cubauoa will buy Cincinnati
whiskey, and there need be no more argument
j upon the subject. U e Lr.po that 4< tuc recom
. uicodation of the Executive" will be acted up
on at once, and tin-§ 200.000,000 appropriated

On the 171b of Feb., inst., EMILY RUTH,
: eldest child of Win. P and Margaret Miotic,
; aged 13 years.
The day of her departure was also the anai-
J vcrsary ot her birth. Wbni solemn thought*
| crowd lite niiud on au occasion like the ne re
j corded above. Life end Death go hand in
; hand together! The dear departed was ore of
i the most affectionate and dutiful children—
| obedient to her parents, nr.d kind to her broth
j cr, sisters and friends A few days before her
i departure, and before fell disease bad destroyed
her intellect, she expressed an anxious wish to
be with her Saviour it) Heaven. Lot uot her
friends mouru as those who have no hope, for
their loss is her eternal gain.
••Softly, softly blow, ye breezes,
Gently o.'er our EMILY fly !
1.0, she slumbers, slumbers sweetly j
Softly, zephyrs, piss her by." I>.
j Ou the 31st ult ,iu Bedford Tp., Mrs. ANNA
! MARGARET WAFER, aged at out 32 year*.
Death, the common enemy of inankiud, us- i
: sails u* ia many various forms, nd wrings sor- i
i row from our heart* at utmost every period of I
! our lives.
In the death of our departed friend, he as
' sumed his mildest fonu—sweetly she sank away
j to rest jot deep and poignant is tbe blow he
1 inflicted. A tend mother has been bereft of]
n only child, the sol.ee of her declining yoar*. i
l Truly, tbe joys of earth arc few ta aged pa- ;
rents mourning the loss cf their offspring; the
i buoyancy of youth, the forming of new ties, !
I cannot cheer such desolate hearts as theirs.— j
I But, sorrowing mother, there is a lupe for you, j
I lighter than all tho pleasures this sublunary
lite could afford; it is a re-union in Heevun.— j
A few mote change* in this little sphere of tri- 1
i ills—then, if faithful, you shall meet bci iu
; that spirit-laud, where the pangs of separation '
are forever unknown. But that mother weeps j
uot ulone, another ha* been stricken and sn.it
ten of God. Ho who kindly alleviated every
want, and, subduing his own feelings, sat by !
the side of his bosoui tricud, smoothing as
much as possible her exit frotu this transitory j
life. Who can paiut the anguish of his heart, I
when the awful icality burst upon his mind !
She is gone, forever gODe— the family circle is
now brottcD—the helpless babes are now too de
prived of that care and affection, which a moth
er ulone can bestow. Grievous, indeed, bag ;
been this bereavement, but tlwrc is comfort in
•he assurance that an all-wise Piovideucc doe to !
all things well, although his ways are oft times !
dark and nysterious, and past finding out; yet
what we know not know, we shall know li-ie
after. ''She cannot come unto vou, hut ye ear. j
go unto her."
Our lamented frioud, though retiring anJ •
unobtrusive iu her manners, was teioved. We :
have heard expressions like this: "We knew j
her, and loved her;" and wo, too, in visiting j
her sick chamber, learned to love her. As we
gazed upon tho ravages which disease Lad I
made, and beheld tho sufferer meekly resi"ned :
to her fate, we conld not but appreciate tho j
sustaining power cf our blessed religion, iu the
dark hour of effliet'on. She had given her j
heart unto God, and though aha could have de- j
sired :o i;ve for the sake of those little cnea '
entrusted to her care, yet her language was, J
"I am perfectly willing to submit tcTtbo will of
my Heavenly Father." A short time previous °
to her death, she became a member of the '
church of Christ, and ia the solemn ordinance '
of baptism, dedicated her offspring to the !
Lord; solemn and impressive is tbe scene, when j
a djing mother gives her babes into the care of i
Him "who hears the young ravens when they i
cry," cnu "careih for the lilys of the field," !
feeling that lie will also care for them.
Notwithstanding there are pleasiug reflec- i
tious connected with the dece-.se of our friend,
yet the sympathetic tear must flow, for he who |
cannot feel for another's woes, never himself i
endured or never profited bv tun stroke of ca- I
family. * SUE. j

Ou Saturday evcuing, the s:h mat., after a
short illuesa, at his residcnco ia Friends Cove,
Mr. FREDERICK SMITH, nged 64 years, 1 month
aud 22 da\s.
it is our painful duty to record the rather
suddeu departure of this good father, neighbor,
and triend. 'The deceased was a Dative of
Fiicnds Cove. His departure is a severe be
reaveuiaut. tiot only to his now afflicted and
uiuch esteeiueu consort and fatherless children,
but also to the whole Cove, of which he was an
obliging and useful member.
The writer bus been acquainted with him for
about 3 years, and he cau say, to know iiim,
wus to love and respect him. lie was always
kind and benevoleut, coustaut in viai'iug the
sick aud afflicted. As a christian, he was ex
emplary, and truly oousistent in profession.
Thus has the wife and the children lost an
affectionate and kiud husband and father, and
the church to which he belonged (Lutheran) a
warm friend and member. But to his praise
he it said, he was a true christian Iriend to his
brethreu ot the German Reformed church, who
worshiped in the same -church. Ilis seat was
seldom vacant. But he Las goue to the many
mansions of his Father's house.
And whilst the distressed family, the church
and the neighborhood, mourn their loss, they
have this comfortable assurance, their loss is
his gaio. *'l kuow that my Redeemer livetb,"
was his emphalio answer to the writer, aud
calmly, and quietly, and prayerfully, he met
I the messenger death. not for ir.e,
when I uni gone, when I am gone."
