The alarm of fire sounded from box 75,
at one o'clock A. st., was occasioned by
the renewed violeht demonstration of
the fiery element. The oil in the six
thousand barrel tank, which was burn
ing during the day, at midnight reached
the deposit of water on the bottom,when
the steam, generated by the in
tense heat, caused the flames to
burst out in renewed fury, reaching
three hundred feet toward the heavens.
The double two-story frame dwelling,
occupied by German workmen employed
at the refinery, and owned by Mr.
H. Schneider, took fire and had to be
torn down by Hook and Ladder Coin.pany No. 1, to save tho Franklin
adjacent. The sight presented our
reporter at that hour this morning Was
truly grand and magnificent. Fora mile
around the scene of the fire everything
was plainly discernible, and the heavens
were red as blood in the bright glare. The
tire, it is thought, has exhausted Itself
and will do no more damage. Earth
works in the form of Nib-pits have been
thrown up ma either side oftho five acres
of ground already devastated, and will
serve to check the progress of the flames.

.p man'afactory. He at once gave
'alarm wilich summoned the officers
er the institution. and caused an exam.
ination of the premises.
The sting in which the fire was discov
ered was a two story brick edifice, lees
ted on the eastern side of and connected
with the main building by a platform,,
constructed from the second- flours
across an intervening space of about
twenty feet. The lower floor was occu
pwhd as a 000 per shop, and the tipper ae a

were managed by the officers of the
Refuge, although the male inmates of
the House were employed in them.
The cooper shop was controlled by
Messrs. R. T. Kennedy & Brother, pro

supervision of Messrs. Weaver, Bardall

When the officers of the Refuge entered
the whip factory, they discovered the
flames to be raging fiercely between the
ceiling and rafters, but supposing it
possible to subdue the flames -with the
'force at their disposal, they did not im

rums. They , commenced with the hose,
kept on hand for an emergency, and
the buckets; but atter working
about fifteen minutes, and find
ing the flames increasing, telegraphed
for assistance to Allegheny and were
answered by the entire Fire Department,
in about twenty minutes: The engines
were compelled to draw water from the
river, there being no other water feel!-
' ties., The arrival of the firemen was very
' opportune, s the fire began to spread
towards the main building, It was
however prevented extending in that
direction by the demolition of the
connecting platform and the prompt ex
ertions of the firemen in directing two
streams of water upon that 'side of the
burning building. Before the flames
filled the interior of the shops a por
tion of the , stock was removed from the
coopering establishnient, but none could •
be secured from the, whip factory. The
fire continued to burn for over two hours,
and resulted in the total destruction of
the wing in which it originated and al
most the entire contents.
The loss of Messls. Kennedy & Bro. is
estimated at 11,500, upon which, we are
inforrued,t here was no insurance. Messrs,
Weaver Co. will lose probably 12,500,
consisting principally of finished work.
They were not Insured. The building
when constructed, about five years since,
cost $12,000, and as it was totally de
stroyed,nothing but a portion of the walls
remaining, the Refuge will lose this
amount. This is, however, about, if no;

remarkably fine, and besides the colkee
lion of time pieces manufactured in Eu

with the age of progressin which we live.
This fact is fafly demonstrated by the

of almost every descaiption, within a
few years past. 'Until: within two or
three years the manufacture of queens
