men were forced to depend upon the river, a quay
ter of a mile distant, for water. At length they ar
ranged a line of hose engines from the river up to
the walls of the building, and eventually brought a
powerful stream of water upon the fire, and by this
means saved the east wing from destrnetion, which
appeared inevitable, while the west wing and the
whole of the main building were entirely consum
ed. The building was a substantial structure et
brick and grani'e, foul stories high, and about two
hundred feet in length It was erected in 1840 and
'4!, for educational purposes, and was under fate
care of the " Fathers of the Society nt Jesus " The
average number of pupils for several years past has
been about one hundred, and the Faculty. at the
present time, consists of a President, Vtce-Presi
dent, Prefect of Schools, lira Professors. and sax As
sistant Teachers. As a literary institution, It oreu
pied a high rank in the denomination by which it
was endowed, and youths from all parts of the
Union, from Canada, and from the West Indies, are
