Over Seven Thousand Dollars' Worth of
Property Destroyed._
• •Thoisday-itAre 1 3*LvWf : `, l .out in ,a
frame building owned by Mr. S. Marks,.
and occupied by Mr. John Slack as
a chi-
:penter shop, - on Miadle alley.)' near Samp
son street, Second ward, Allegheny, which
resulted in the , destruction- of over seven
thotuaind dollars' worth o piatierty, and
threatened for a time to devastate the
wholes, iiiire inwhich it was located.
Whe the fire woe first disCoVered it had
not gained much headway, but such was
the rapidity of its progress, that when the
fire department .reached the ground, al-.
though they had very promptly responded
to the alarm, the whole building was a
sheet of flame.
Next to the shop, on the south• side, were
two frame dwellings, also the propert,y of
Mr. Marks, and occupied by-Fred. Lehman
and Heim jaandressiwhiehquickly ignited
and were destreyed, the occupants, how
ever, fortunately sueceeding in the removal
of their household effects. On the north
side was'a large new frame stable, the prop
erty of, and 'occupied by, Smith & Co.,
pentors and contractors, which, owing to
the very combustible nature of. its con
tents, was speedily reduced to ashes. There
were in the stables at the time four horses
and several sets, of harness, a buggy,
barouche and wagon, • all' , of which •
were saved, though not without con
siderable difficulty. Immediately in the
rear of the carpenter shop, on the property
of Mr. Marks, was a small frame stable, in
which were - two 'Wiggles and 'a valuable
horse - and cow, which were removed with
out being injured. - Through,..the almost
superhuman exertions of the firemen, the
large triune carpenter :shop - .of Measrs.
'Smith & Co., fronting onFederal street and
running back nearly to the stable, was
saved from - the tire, though about.- fifty
thousand feet of lumber in the yard was
so much damaged as to be 'of little future
value. The firemen perceiving the impos
sibility of saving any of the buildings - to
which the fire had communicated, directed
their efforts to, prevent the spread of the
themes in which pthey were successful,
:having in a short time the fire under com
plete control.
The loss, as near as could be ascertained,
is something over seven thoosand dollars.
Mr. Slack, whose shop the fire origina
ted, estimates his loss at six or seven hun
dred dollars,on which there'is .no insu
rance.. Mr. arks' loss will• reach at least
three thousand dollars, on which there is
an insurance of six hundred dollars in the
liational'lnsurarice Company of
Messrs. Smith & Co. have insurance to the
amount of three thousand five hundred
dollars on their property, divided between
the Etna and Lycoming, t both eastern com
panies which will
, prebebly fully cover
thell,Aoss: •
In regard to the origin of the fire various
opinions are afloat, none of which, how
ever, appear very plausible and the affair
will `probably forever re main a mystery.
The general opinion seems to be that it was
wholly the result of accident, but how
that accident occured none can tell, as no
person had been working in the shop.whVre
it occurred for several weess previous. In
closing our account we cannot refrain.from
awarding the highest praise to the firemen
who labored like heroes to keep the con
flagration from spreading. And had it. not
been ' , for their tireless exertions, nn
doubtedly the loss would have been much

A Burglar hhot--111.11 Dying Confession.
Some four or five= weeks ago a party of
three burglars entered a clothing establish=
ment in Ravenna, Ohio. They were over
heard by a young lad sleeping in the store,
who, seizing his gun, , flred at them. With
a sharp cry of pain from one of the thieves,
who had evidently been hit, the party fled.
Daylight showed blodd to have been spit ted ,
but a thorough search of the village failed
to reveal the criminal*. But three stran
gers had been observed loitering about
the village the previous evening, by a citi
zen who, the next day, taking the
cars Rik Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, was
surprised to see the same party on the train
just before reaching Pittsburgh. One of
them had his lace boandup and was appa
rently in much suffering. The citizen tele

But, the same day, a man was brought to
a hospital in this city, suffering from the
effects of a gunshot wound. He received
due care in that charitable institution, but
it was unavailing • lingerld until last
week, when, in his dying moments, he
confessed the crime which he had attempt

however, in divining it to be Hartzell. Re
