'disease is still on lite increase, and
over seren-eighta ol ull tlio horse* in

verely among private coach horses us
in car and omnibus stable*. The
sired car horses have boon withdrawn
from all short lri|u, and lite cars nre
making .fewer nips and slower time.
Among 2ftt) horses owned by Cut lie re
mit one animal i- free from dimtM.
The Express this morning puhlishca
a table showing the n ittulier of horses
sick in twelve livery stables in this
city, which shows that out of lift hor
ses only lo are able to work, ami out
|of twelve ull but one are elosed. Of
one hundred haekutcn in the city only
! ten appeared yestciday, aud there are
none at all visible to-day. Omnibus
companies' trip* arc suspended for the
Cist three days, ami truck horses all

the express company, only one is being
worked. The disease lias appealed
atuong the lire department horses, bill
not to a general extent. Hack in the
country the disease has not yet appear

i very little, but should it become gen-

few eases where it has appeared the
horses have been taken out of the sta
bles, away from other teams, aud to
this way the towing contpauies hope
to prevent the epidemic from becom
ing geueral. So fur not more than a
half doxen horses have died. The
disease is not considered fatal until it
reaches the lungs. Many of our ve
teriuarv surgeon* have visited Canada
to inquire into the nature and method
The symptoms appear to be a bud

this is a Canadian disease, which has
swept through Montreal, aud still ex

be spreadiug east, haviug already ap
peared iu Rochester. At Niagara
Falls and Suspension bridge nearly
all the horses art* atliicted.

—The horse disease is prevailing here
to an alarming extent. The stables

and foggy. The hor?e disease has
now spread to every stuble iu the city.
The symptoms of contagion are visi
ble on almost every horse on the
streets. Stages aud street car lines
are continuing to lessen their trips.
At about eight o'clock last evening
there was not a Broadway stage be
tween the Battery and City Hall, aud
this morning thai thoroughfare seems
to be almost without vehicles. Alto
gether it is calculated that about eigh
teen thousand horses arc now atliict

rain has been falling since yesterday
forenoon, and everything out of doors
wears a dismal appearance. There
ports this morning of the horse disease
are very discouraging. More fatal ca
ges have been reported this morning
than during the whole time since the
disease made its appearance here,
The streets are deserted of horse , hut
wagons and carts drawn by men are
Clcnty. The loss to all branches of
usiuess is immense.
BRUNSWICK, Me., October 26. —The
horse disease has appeared both here
aud at Topshttm. The cases thus far
reported are of a very mild character.
BALTIMORE, October 26.—Some
horses here aro singularly sick, but

known and authenticated case of the

being, was reported here to day. Rus

attending to his horses, was suddenly
taken with the disease, and was taken
home. He had all symptoms of the

causing a general devastation.
The immediate cause of the inunda

Burning of the Kseurial.
A dispafh from Madrid, Hjiaiu,
j states that the celeorated mouastory .
: known as the Kseurial, 24 miles from
I Madrid, wa struck by lightning on
the evening of!thc 2d iust. The build-j
ing was quickly on tire, und so rapid
was the progress of the devouriug ele
ment that the dome aud tower of the
magnificent edifice soou fell. The
royal palace, with its splendid libra
ry of books and puiuliugw and rare and
costly manuscripts, was in great dan
ger, but a brigade of eugineers, fully
equipped with materiel for use in such
emergencies, left Madrid for the Ks

The Kseurial was a combined pal

will of his father in constructing the
royal burial place aud to fulfil a vow
made by him during the battle of St.
Quentiu, August 10, 1557, iu return
for the aid of San Loreuso, which he
implored. The French were defeated
with bmmenso loss in the battle, and
the colossal structure of the Kscuriali
is said to be in proportion to the fear
and piety of Philip during aud subse
quent to the affray. The first stone of
the buildiug was laid Aprii 23, in the
year 1563, bv Juan Haulisla do Tole
do, and the edifice was completed Sep
tember 13, 1584, by his celebrated pu
pil, Juan de Herrara. On the same
,day of the same month, September 13,
'in the year 151>8, Philip the second
expired iu the building, having lived
