rro tertian of Towanda against Fire.
31 ESSR3. vl TORS :—You are aware, of all the
great, powerful, and primary elements' that have
entered into -the composition of this world, viz.
earth, air, fire, and water; there none whose
evils are more greatly to be deprecated at the pre-
sent age, than that of fire. It is true, that they all,
have, not unfrequently been attended with great
calamity, in the special visitation of Gods avenging
retribution unto the children of men—which is only
' the fulfilment of his unalterable law. For he'af
firms, in unequivocal language, within the fdlds of
divine inspiration. that, Thisway of the transgres
sor is hard." Earthquakes, in their convulsive
shacks, have devastated Whole regions of country,
and rocked it from centre to cireum ference. While
air, has borne aloft, into the aerial - world, proud
monuments of earth, to fall, is but the wreck of hu
man skill—and in its magic flight along the bosom
of the earth. con% erted.verdarit regions and golden
.a barren wage. While our Niles, and
our Tibem, in the overflowing of-their banks, and
a portion of the surrounding country, have commit
ted extensive depredations upon property, both
public and private. But, by exercising all neces
sary precaution against their ravages, we can abide
m sure security, from their evils in every form. •
Earthquakes, and Tornadoes, were not uncom
mon in the days of the zunediluvians---Lbut since the
christian era, those special visitations upon man,
by his author, are far less frequent.
But, no one, who is familiarly conversant ith
the past history of the world, but what will readily
admit, that fire has caused the entire ruin, of some
of the greatest cities, the world has evil,- known—
clothed in o mlence and power, they might yet
have been living monuments of man's skill and
genius—had not their tate, among the unfortunate
of this world been cast.
We pointto Gomorrah, Sodom, Rome, and Mos
cow, and many other proud cities which it is un
necessary to mention. But let The fire that buried
them—that sang their funeral dirge, and chanted a
requium to their departing days, tell how• they per
. But, to speak from a more modern date, we re
fer you to London, New York, Pittsburg, and hun
dreds of other places which we presume are fami
liar to the reader, and ali within the recollection of
the present age. But lastly, though not least, we
cite you to unfortunate Towanda, who deserved a
better fate, but to whose sad calamity we aro all.
Self preservation, it; one of the primitive instincts
of our nature, and should cause 113 i at all times, to
be on our guard, prepared to combat the evils of
this life to which we are so commonly exposed.
Towanda, is very ill prepared at present, to make
a successful resistance against fire—without an ef
fective engine, or well organized fire comßany.
But she need not be thus weak and feeble in hes
own detente. There are scores of young men in
our borough, who would cheerfully volunteer their
aid and organize a well equipped company of fire
then, if furnished, with the requisite means, by
those whose interests they are willing to protect.
I profess to be endowed __but' with a moderate
share of that prophetic vision which is common un
to all men, in judging of untranspired events. But
in judging cf the future by the past, I venture•here
to predict, that another square.must yet be consum
ed in Towanda, by the devouring element, before
its inhabitants, will adopt measures for their future
safety . •
Many of you, who abide in supposed security,
and fancy yourselves beyond the reach of fire, jll
be sadly mistaken, when you find yourselves made
destitute by its ravages, of all which has heretofore
rendered yob comfortable, and turned loose upon
the cold charities of this selfish world. Then, you
will regret that you did not exerCtitat influence you
possessed, iu purchasing your security from fire,
which could be obtained with a mere nominal sum,
compared with the value of apermanent safeguard
and shield thrown around yourself, your family,
and your all. " Now is the accepted time, now is
the day of your salvation." A Crturs.

There had been no later news direct from Gen.

It goes on to say That heroic resistance had been

from which his missiles could reach the peaceful
thousands of the city, and that their Supreme Go

merit would be very soon announced ; though the
cite had not vet been agreed upon.
The American army charged on the 13th at day
break with all their force upon Chapultepec, which
yielded after a spirited defence of six hours. The
Americans immediately marched upon another
strong fortification, but the first advance was check

were finally routed from the citadelafter nine hours'',
The capital being in this situation, Santa Anna
anxious to avoid its bombardment, determined to

Verbal reports received at Vera Cruz are, that he
retired to Guadaloupe with ten thousand troops and
twenty-five pieces artillery.
No mention is made of the reported bombard

Americans carried the Citadel, they turned theguns
of that fortification on the city, when the Mexican
