On Monday, the 11th inst. this buildiiig
creeled for (lie purpose of public dismission,
Was opened 'for tlm first time, and a groat
excitement was created in the city in conse
quence of several speeches having been
made upon tlio subject of the abolition of
slavery. On Wednesday a large crowd as
sembled in front of the llall.and broke or
00 panes of glass but done no other damage.
Thursday tho excitement became general,
and resulted in tho destruction of the build
ing, the following account of which wo ex
tract from the Philadelphia Inquirer of Fri
Destruction of Pennsylvania Hall.
The popular excitement growing out of
the dedication of Pennsylvania Hall, and the
attending circumstances, reached a fearful
pitch throughout yesterday. Tho tumult
of the previous night was the theme of all
tnnmiRs: a thousand extravagant Btories
were circulated, and the apprehension be
came general, thatlhe night would not pass
by, without a still more fearful and exciting
scene. Durinir tho day, the Hall was ope!i,
and.as wo hd ce, one or two lectures wore
-delivered. At noon, from 100 to 200 per
sons congregated in front of the building;
and the number continued to increase and
tho sensation become stronger, until to
wards sundown, when thousands from eve
ry section of the city and county, poured
in dense masses towards the scene; and by
8 o'clock, there must have bqen a concourse
of Ten Thousand porsons.of all classes,sex
cs; ages and conditions. The Mayor, we
'arc told, made his appearance at an early
'hour', and closed the doors of tho Hall; not
withstanding it was understood that a socie
ty would meet there in the evening for ihe
purpose of discussion. Wo need scarcely
state that, as the crowd increased the ex
citement waxed warmer. The first de
monstrations of attack were made upon the
windows, which were thrown at, from nu
merous hands and from every direction.
Tho movement was followed up by an
attempt to force the doors, which at first did
not succeed : the efforts, however, were
soon redoubled! and an entrance effected.
The next step was breaking the scats, gal
leries and furniture in the interior. The
'fragments it is said, were hastily gathered
together in the centre of the hali,and a toich
applied. The gas pipes wore cut and fire
communicated to the streams that issued
forth. These are tho statements of the
"hight; for with conflicting niniors in circula
tion, it was impossible to discover any au
thenticated account of the more deliberate
preliminary steps. The aldrm of fire was
speedily given, and the vast multitude rc
ecoed the cry. Tho state house bell also
rang out, and tho engines and fiiemcn pour:
ed in with their apparatus, which they
snefedilv nut in rcUdiness for action: ,
The crowd liv this timQ had swollen to
an immense macnitudei and not only Sixth
street from Arch to Race, presented a dense
mass of human beings, but all tho streets
and alloys adjacent, were thronged with
caaoi and excited spectators. Tho alarm
soon spread through the city a few hasty
particulars passed from mouth to mouth;
and tho apprehension was far greater among
those who had not an opportunity of wit
nessing the progrces of tjie flames, than the
imuipdiato spectators of tho scenri.
This was natural: the Hall being located
in one of the most densely populated parts
of our city, within a stone's throw of the
Arch Street Theatre, and a number of frame
buildings being in the immediate neighbor-
norm, u was iuurcu inui, nu wauci nun
well directed the affairs of the Bremen, nor
how liberal the supply of water.they would
not be able to bound the progress of the
flames. Nay more, a conflict between the
nnlicu and the crowd was apprehended; and
hence, many an anxious mother, or suscep
tiblo wife, dreaded lest tho liluht would no
nass by, without the destruction of life as
well as nroneitv.
Soon after nine o'clock, the whole build
ing was Wrapped in flames, which diffused
gradually move subdued, as tin1 hour of
midnight approached. Tho only accident
that wc heard of, was one caused" by an en
gine which, running over a fireman, frac
tured ins leg. tie was earned on on a
board by a nuinbor of citizens. Wo need
scarcely add, that the condition of the resi
dents in tho immediate neighborhood, and
especially at the commencement of the oc
currence, was alarming, and painful in the

Tho New Hampsuiro Courier says, that James
Baton, a gunsmith of Concord, N.II. has invented
an important improvement in loading end discharg
ing tho musket or tho rifle, with a rotary magazine
capablo of containing powder, balls and caps sufll
cicnt for twenty-four rounds, and it may bo loaded
,in ono minute, and give twenty four discharges in
our minutes! Ono chamber is assigned for balls,
ono for powder, and ono for cap3. It loads itself
from tho magazine, and puts on tho caps, merely
by turning the magazine half way round ; and its
construction renders it perfectly safe, ns no ball ran
bo lodged midway of tho rifle, nor can fire commu-
nicato with tho magazine. Twenty-four pieces, in
cluding every spring, screw and pin, complete this
wonderful piece of machinery.
