LENT.—Wednesday, the sth was Ash- |
Wednesday, commencement of the Lenten Fast, which
closes with Easter-Even, embracing a period of forty
days. Ash-Wednesday is so called from the ancient Cath
olic ceremony of blessing the ashes on that day, with
which the Priest made a sign of the Cross upon the lore- |
heads of his flock, with tb? wholesome admonition of
Itlomento, homo, quod pu/vie et, it in pulveren rtventerys;
" Remember, man, that thou art dust, and shall return to
dust." In the Feslyvatl, dated 1511, it is said :—"Ye
shall begyn your feste on Ashe Wedenesdaye. That must j
ye come to holy cbirche, and take ashes of the Preeste's
handes, and ttaynke ov tbe wordes well that he sayeth
over your bedes ; have mynde, thou, man, of ashes thou
art comen, and to ashes thon shnlt tourneagayne."
Lent, in the Saxon language, signifies Spring, and is
now used to signify the Spring Fast, in commemoration
of the sufferings of Jesus, which euded at his death and
resurrection. In former times, after the morning cere
monies at church, it wa9 a day of various festivities. I

BAF*I)KSTRCCTIVK FIRE —On Saturday morn- \
lng last, about 2 o'clock, the alarm of fire was sounded
through our village. The citizens and diflereut fire com
panies were promptly at the scene of conflagration. The
fire originated in the wagon shop of PHILLIP SSIBICH, on
Main street, and the Haines had gained such headway
that to arrest their progress was impossible. The build'

beside the wagon shop, a paint shop and blacksmith shop
occupied by ANDREW SKIBILU and JOHN ESSKN WIN it, we re
consumed together with their contensts. Nothing was
From this building the flame 3 spread to the adjoining
building owned by E. KUOMKR and occupied as a black
smith shop. Mr. KKOXKR succeeded in saving a portion
of his tools—the building was consumed.
The flames spread with great rapidity and notwith
standing the unceasing exertions of the firemen and citi
zens. the dwelling house of Mr. KBOMEK, which was only
separated from his shop by a narrow alley, was also en
tirely ruined. Mr. KKOUBK kept a grocery and saloon in
the front part of his dwelling bouse. The most of his
goods and household furniture were removed although in
a damaged condition.
The loss of Messrs. SKIBICUS' and ESSKNWINB IS about
$2,500. No insurance.
Mr. KHOMKU'S loss is about $1,200. No insurance.
The origin of the fire is unknown. It is supposed by
many to be the work of ac incendiary.
Letter from Hon. David Wilmot.
WASHINGTON, March 5, 1862.
DEAR SIR :— Your leter of invitation to at- ;
tend a meeting to be held at tbe Cooper In- j
stilutc, in the City of New York, on Thursday
eveniug, tbe 6th iustaut, has been received.
I urn huuored by your iaviiation, and would j
be pleased, if it were convenient, to be present :
uud participate in the proposed meeting. My
public duties will bold ore here ; and 1 can
ouly respond briefly by letter to your in vita
I heartily approve of the objects of the
meeting, as set forth in liie call. The honor
uud sulety o.* the nation demand that the cause
of this gigantic rebellion should be forever re
moved. This alone will give us peace and
safety, honor and national respect. Slavery
is the one, exclusive, and only cause of the re
bellion and war through which we are strug
gling for national existence. It is now made
clear to all that Slavery is the deadly foe of
the Union —the implacable and eternal enemy
of free Government. A truly free Govern
ment, founded upon justice and right, and ap
peuhug to reason and benificeut laws for sup
port, never did and never can long exist in the
midst of Slavery God, io his providence, has
plueed Slavery within therigiulul power of the
nation. We must not treruble and hesitate,
because of the magnitude of the lal>ors and
duties cast upon us ; we must meet uud dis
charge our duties, as men iu whose hands is
i placed the ark of human happiness and hopes.
| We must aud will, if true to God, our couu
try, aud the race of mankind, now and forever
j destroy and wipe out from this nation the ac
cursed institution of human Slavery.
The slaveholder, by his treason arid rebel
lion against the Constitution, and by the wur
he has forced upon the Government for self
preservation, bus wholly absolved us from all
constitutional and political obligations to treat
his unnatural claim of property in man with
any toleration whatever. Wbeu the traitor is
forced oy arms from his purpo=e to destroy
the Constitution and Government, he csnntt,
the moment he is defeated iu his wicked pur
; po6e, plead the Constitution he made war to
I overthrow as the whit.ld and protection for his
j forfeited rights of Slavery. It is the right
and duty of the nation t protect itself, now
and in the future. We must make sure against
another rebellion, greater than the one now
upon us. The national life must be preserved,
by applying the kuife to the ca icer that is
eating the very substance and life of the na
tion. The nation must make a proclamation
of freedom to the slaves of every traitor ; and,
as a matter of policy, not of strict right, pro
vide for raakiag vximpensation to loyal slave
holders for the temporary loss incident to the
speedy emancipation of their slaves. Less than
this we cannot do with honor or safety. We
have aright to do more. We have a right,
instantly and at once, to up.oot and eradicate
forever any local institution, law, custom, usage,
that puts io imminent peril the natioual life.—
We have a right to kill Slavery, that the na
tion may live. Very respectfully, yonr obedi
ent servant, D. WILMOT.

A printed quarto sheet, of eight pages, or forty-eight
columns—devoted to Politics, Literature and General

everything which may happen.ot general interest, in any
part of the world. It comments fully and freely upon all
topics ol importance in every department of public action,
and always in the interest of Freedom, Order, and the
Public Good. While its influeuce will be uniformly con
servative, it advocates every measure of just arid beniti
cent Prog.ess. and resists the increase, extension, or
perpetuation of Slavery, as of everything else incompati
ble with the highest welfare of the whole community.—
While it reports promptly and accurately all intelligence
of general interest in every department ol human activity,
it never panders to vicious tastes, and exclude- irom its
columns everything that might render it unsafe or im
proper for general FAMILY perusal. It seeks to promote
the general welfare by urging the claims of
EDUCATION, MORALITY AND RELIGION
upon the masses of the jeople ; and in all its discussions,
it endeavors constantly to be guided aud controlled by
the spirit of
MODERATION, PATRIOTISM AND COMMON SENSE.
In its CORRESPONDENCE, both Foreign and Domestic,
the TIMES is confessed to be superior to any other Ameri
can Journal. Its REPORTS of Congressional and Legisla
tive proceedings, of Financial, Commercial and
of important Legal and Criminal Trials, and of whatever
may have special interest for the great body of the com
munity. are full, prompt and reliable.
Especial attention is devoted to full, accurate and
trustworthy reports of the
LIVE STOCK AND PRODUCE MARKETS,
for which a special corps of Reporters is maintained.
