JAY GOULD'S GREAT LOSS.
1HS VAST COXSEKVATtlliy OX TUK
UCDSOX 11UKXED TO THE GHOUNU.
A Fire that Swept Away One of the Princi
pal Attractions of Llndenhurst and
the Finest IJetaidcal Collection
On Fiiday niglit Lindenliinst, 3rr. Jay
Gould's summer residence at Irving ten, en
the Hudsen, boasted of the largest and
best appointed conservatory, containing
the rarest and most expensive collection of
llewers lti the L nitcu btates. V hen the
situ rose Saturday morning little remained
of the vast glass buildings beyond a mass
of smoking ruins, sending out volumes of
.stilling smoke, redolent with the odor of
smeuldering vegetable matter, and $200,
000 worth of property had been destroyed
by lire in the night.
The green houses were situated about
two hundred yards from the house, and
being en very high ground, could be seen
from the Hudsen, net a mile distant. In
the warm summer days passengers en the
Hudsen river steamboats looked with as
tonishment at a mass of glittering matter,
which, when the sun shnne brightly threw
out se dazzling a rellcctien that the cye
could net long bear te leek upon it. and it
was net always easy te see that the bril
liant reflected light came from the reef
and sides of a conservatory. The buildings
which were all connected, ran from cast te
west, with a wing et 8j ieet long at each
end. The main building was 400 feet long
and about 20 feet wide, and the wings
were each 0 feet wide. The main en
trance te the conservatory was between
the two wings, and was situated in the
" central house," which jutted out te a
distance of about 80 feet, making the
whole structure take something of the
formation of the letter E in its ground of
line. This central house was circular, and
in it was a wonderfully artistic display of
llewers. In the middle was a feitntiin.
Around it were "stagings" or stands, of
llewers, one of which was of a crescent
shape. Frem the reef of the centra! house
arose an ornamental octagonal tower 00
feet high and 20 feet in diameter. It bore
a gigautie gilt ball at the top, and was the
most conspicuous object for many miles
along the Hudsen. On one side of the
building were graperies, storeroom, and
bowling alley, which lilled up the space,
including the wing at that side te the cen
tral room. On the ether side of the cen
tral room were a billiard room, a seed
room, a rose house, a tool house, a recep
tion room, a bedroom, and several green
houses. At 2 o'clock the employees arose and
made the rounds with the same result. It
was terribly cold at this time, the ther
mometer outside showing 9 J, but in the
conservatory the usual warm temperature
was kept up. Shortly before " o'clock the
two men were aroused by the barking and
growling of Mr. Gould's two immense mas
tiff dogs, Ilussc and Stccrferth, who were
running uneasily about they conservatory.
A red, llickering light was dancing en the
wall of the bedroom, and evidently coming
from some, source outside. Tiie watchers,
as is the rule with all who have charge of
the conservatory at night, were entirely
dressed, and they say they did net lese an
instant in springing from their beds. A
hasty glance through the adjoining com
parttnciits showed them that there was no
tire inside ; but the red light could be seen
everywhere and the loud barking of the
dogs continued. Then, just as the alarm
clock sounded its 3 o'clock signal, Hams
looked through the glass and saw that the
tower was en lire.
The cottage of Ferdinand Mangold, the
head gardener, is but a short distance from
the conservatory. One of the men ran te
it and called him at once, and in live min
utes after the lire had been discovered he!
was en the ground. But these five mill-
utes had effected a marked difference.
Dense clouds of smoke were rellingup into ,
the clear winter air, and the sharp crack
of the glass, as it yielded te the heat, and
the clatter of its fragments falling en the i
fleer were plainly heard.
"The water apparatus. In the central
house. Quick !" cried Mangold, as the
smoke rolled in his face and almost choked
him. The three men ran te the central
house and hurst in the deer, but the ter-
l cut el smoke that swept out upon them i
forced them te beat -a hasty retreat, and j
warned them that no entrance was pessi-'
ble there. Recovering himself as quickly
as possible Mangold rushed te the great
bell which summoned the men te work :
and te meals, and seizing the rope rang it
furiously. IJut though its clear tones
must have sounded far away upon the I
frosty air, many minutes elapsed before it .
elicited any response. Then the bell of the
church at Fenny Bridge, a quarter of a
mile away, began te ring, and, satisfied ,
that he liad at last made somebody hear ,
him, the head gardener hastened back te
his assistants, who had been working hard
te extinguish such portions of the lire as I
they could new reach. But they could de ,
nothing. Without water the men were ,
powerless te combat the ll.imes, and the
Witter apparatus with which the building
was furnished was in the central house, !
hopelessly beyond reach. Ner is it likely .
that it would have been of any use had it J
been at hand, for the sharp frost had j
frozen up all the pipes, and no water wa3
In a quarter of an hour the five garden
ias who slept off the premises were at the
lire, and in a few miuutcs mers six ether
men, strangers, arrived ; and beyond these
six it djcs net appear that anybody from
Iivingten or the neighborhood was pres
ent. Had a hundred men been there,
however, they could net, in the total ab
sence of every appliance, have saved any
considerable part of the conservatory.
The fourteen who were en the spot worked
hard, and succeeded in saving a portion of
the tools. This had te be done very
rapidly, for shortly after -1 o'clock 200
tens of coal in the great cellar under the
:onscrv:itery caught lire, and the heat
seen became se intense that it was impos
sible te approach within sixty feet of the
burning building. The glass cracked like
pistol shots, or melted and dropped from
its framework ; the palm trees, some of
them fifteen feet high, writhed like living
things under the flames, and as their sap
dried up and the fire seized them, they
looked like a small forest in a blaze. At
no time were the fiatnes very bright, for
beyond "the coal in the cellar, and the
slender framework of the glass reefs and
sides, there was nothing really that could
burn fiercely. Flauts worth hundreds of
dollars were dried up, and had disappeared
before the flames reached them ; and
costly furniture and rare hard weed
mountings of the billiard room were
licked up without any apparent additional
Hume showing that they were being de
s-treyed, and the bowling alley and its ap
puitericnccs were reduced te charcoal.
At 5 o'clock the tower fell, and with its
fait there arose for the first time a great
red torrent of flame. It was seen from the
ether side of the Hudsen, and for miles up
j and down the river. Then the fire, having
spent us lttry, eegan siewiy te me out,
and at G o'clock the men were able te ap
proach near enough with sticks and buck
ets of water te save a smali pertitm of
the west wing. The wind had net been
blowing in such a direction as te bring the
full force of the flames upon this wiug,aud
the small green-house at the end still
stands. It contains the least valuable por
tion of the plants, and is cailed the "Prop
agating Roem." Here the young shrubs
were brought and received extra attention
aud here, tee, sickly plants were taken, as
te a hospital. This is all that remains of
what was the finest botanical collection in
the United States.
The head gardncr estimates the value of
the plants destroyed at upwards of $40,003
and it is very doubtful if they could be
duplicated for any sum, In the central
house were numerous varieties of the
rarest kind of palm trees, from ten te iif
tC3ti feet high ; tropical foliage plants,
for which Seuth America, India, Austra
lia aud Africa have been searched, and
tree ferns that took prizes In all parts of
Europe , and especially in England and
France. Mr. Gould had thirty varieties of
these tree ferns, a plant nhesc trunk is
like that of a tree up te a certain height,
when it branches out into leaves or
"points" as they are called, soma fifteen
feet long. In front of the central house
were many very r.ire tropical plants and
ferns from Europe.
The house en the west side was devoted
chiefly te graperies and was furnished with
a class of fruit net te be found in the mar
ket. Among the grapes were the rarest,
varieties of the Black Hamburg, Royal
Ascott, Champien of England, Buckiaud, 1
nwectwater, Barbarossa, Black Damascus,
Syrian, Emperor, St. Peter, and West St.
In the east side house were mere trepi
cal plants, palms and tree ferns, together
with two' large aud valuable collections of
plants sent te Mr. Gould by the emperor
et Brazil last October. Among these were
Seuth American tree ferns twenty feet
high, almost challenging the house, which
has as altitude of twenty-five feet, te con
tain them. Mr. Gould is a great lever of
palms and tree ferns : of the former he
had 289 varieties in his conservatory, and
of the latter 45.
Among the tropical plants destroyed
were cretins, coleeases, anil nutheamums
in great variety. The rose house was e:ns
of the chief objects of attraction te a visi
tor. It was forty feet long, twenty feet
wide, and like the rest of the building,
twenty-live feet high. It was lilled with
the finest winter-blooming roses in the
United States, aud nearly all the plants
were opening their leaves when t hey were
destroyed. In another house were pinks
of thirty-five varieties, agawas from Mex7
ice and Seuth America, cold house palms.
Indian azalias, azalias from Jap.tn, and
ether winter-blooming plants.
The building destroyed is said le have
been worth $le0,000, and in the cellar be
neath were goods wetth about $10,000,
consisting of cider, apples, coal, a small
quantity of native wine, and ether
things. On all this there was net a
cent of insurance. S'ni3 time age Mr.
Gould asked his head gardener if he j
thought the conservatory ought te be in
sured, and Mr. Mangold advised him net
te insure it, saying the measures Iks had '
taken te provide against lire were a suffi
cient guarantee ler its safety, air. .Man
gold, who is net a young man, seemed te
be almost hcarl-brekcn. " I could net
have prevented the fire," he said ; "that
nobody in my position could have done ;
but I ought net. te have advised Mr.
Gould against insuring his property. It
was foolish and careless of me, but I never
aficct him much, but he is se fend of
'flowers, and, indeed, of everything beauti

conservatory, and justiy se, for there was

The cause of the fire was apparent.
The heat was supplied te Ilia conserva
tory by the Wcathciiiead appar.ttu", which
sends boiling water through tubes te all
parts of the building. There were three
boilers iu the central house, two in the
graperies, two iu the west wing, aittl one
in the east wing. Frem the centre house
arose a fall chimney, running close te the
tower, and touching this chimney,
was a huge beam or rafter. The wall of
the chimney was thin, and. the furnaces
being mere than etdinarilywcll supplied
with coal during the cold weather, the heat
was very great. It passed through te the
rafter and ignited it, aud the films that
was first seen by Aukhelen and Hams was
undoubtedly coming from the beam,

In Montreal the court of general sessions

rrcsli XQ;irnt!im fur the Democracy.
itf i . a.
-v wasnmgten correspondent or tlie
Xew Yerk Sun says : " Hew docs it hap
pen that when a Democratic reformer is
actually elected president he cannot be in
augurated, and that when we neminate a
Democratic soldier, who is undoubtedly
the choice of a majority of the people, we
cannot get the votes polled ? The cause
lies in the superincumbent body of death
known as the worneut, spiritless Demo
cratic organization. It needs rcinvigora rcinvigera rcinvigora
tiea by a movement from below, te be
blown upon by the het, kindling breath of
the people themselves.- And here I wish
te call the attention of your readers te a
spontaneous popular movement which is
taking shape in many parts of the coun
try, and is, in my judgment, the most hor her
ful sign anvwnere visible.
" When the vote had been taken en the
2d of November, the members of the na
tional and state committees, who had some
m-jntlisbceu censunuug the contributions
of their fellow citizens, under the pretence
that they are doing something toward the
election of Hancock, took their hats and
went home, regretting the less of the
efiices and jobs which seemed se near.
But net se the rank and file. They steed
wondering why they, with a most right
eous cause and a majority of the people,
could net succeed. It was because they
had net attended te the matter themselves.
And new wherever you leek the Hancock
and English clubs, without the least prompt
ing or management from above, are made
permenaut. In some places they resolve
themselves into Jcffcrsenian Democratic
Associations, a name which has a meaning
and is in itself a platform of principles and
a watch cry. These Jcffcrsenian associa
tions will, in all probability, absorb all
oilier Democratic societies. The creed of
Jellerseii will endure as long as the free
institutions which rest upon its principles ;
and the party which he founded can live
enlv by living up te it. Here, then, is life
and inspiration. The old party will renew
its strength by laving its limbs covered
with the sores aud encrusted with filth of
foolish wanderings in the wilderncsa of
modern errors, in this health-giving foun
tain of pure Democracy, and rise mero
than equal te the future.
" There never was a time iu the history
e! the American republic when the Jcffer
snuian ."'! the Hamilteuian ideas of gov
ernment were brought into such sharp
collision :!.-. they arc new. In Jehn Adams's
time the dangar was slight in comparison.
There was then no grand alliance of so se
called "business" of capital, corpora
tions and monopoly with the party in
power. The Federalists could procure an
occasional conviction under the sedition
laws ; could have an editor publicjy
whipped, tir a citizen" who spoke disre-
; Srctiully of the president imprisoned.
Uut the alien and sedition laws were trifles
besides the Republican election laws,
j which authorize au army of civil and mili
! tary Itgents of the executive at the polls.
I The patronage of the federal government
! was then about as great as that of a rc
I Kpee.tablc railway company is new ; no luin-
tiivd thousand eiheers, no incalculable pub
lic debt, no hundreds of millions of an
nual appropriations, no mighty chain of
banks, of monopolies protected by law.and
corporations subsidized. We are face te
when men minded
te preserve the
ate themselves together in
clubs, liberty clubs, popular
committees of vigilance, that time is new.
Tliese clubs in permanent correspondence
with each ether, transmitting the results
of their deliberations from one te another,
moved by the popular impulse and mere
democratic than the Democrats, might,
pei eh. nice, form that bulwark of liberty
which no conspiracy could undermine, and
no open force could ever surmount."
At a recent meeting of tha beard of
directors of the Presbyterian theological

! gifts, a total sum of mere than 200,000
