—On , Saturday morning last, .about four
o'clock;.a fire broke out in the residence of Mr.
Geo. Weed, at New Milford, and continued un
til the entire house was. ins ashes. Mr: Weed,
and wife werein Binghamton at the tiinef,and
there,Wasno one in the house but their (laugh.;
'ter end's lady • friend, Mr. Weed inferniS us
that the fire originated , in .the,kitchen,.Where
the stove pipe enters the chimney.- , The
nifure was mostly destrop.A Mr:Weed's loss ,
on I:Wilding and furniture, is about $3,700. He,
had an insurance on thebuilding amounting to .
$1 . ,350 and on fnrniture $l,OOO. The fire.
.spread:to Leßoy & beckees store and destroy
ed the building, 'but theit stock and - fixtures
were mostly saved: We understand their loss
is covered by an. insurance of $1,200. This
fire is particiarly unfortunate. for 1;•r. Weed at
this time as he, in,Compeny with some eight
!Others, Will leave for Central America ih about
ten days, and it will be necessary for him .10
provide ether. quarters ,for his family before his
departure: He will be absent about one year.
After 'each fire in New Milford — there has
been much talk about organizing a fire depart
'meat, but , there has never been anything ac
compliihed. This time'.the subject is again re
10'fied; nnd we. trust
.that 'it may end in estab

—6-The Democraey of. Meshoppen, Wyom
ing county, bad a mass meeting and Hickory
pole raising on Wednesday last and it was one
of The most demonstrative and enthusiastic
(yet orderly,) gathering of the kind we ever
witnessed. They have a wigwam erected that
will hold a thousand . persons, which was pick
ed to overflowing, and by actual count we are
certain there were from 1,200 to 1,500 persons
in and. about ;t. The' meeting was addressed,
both afternoon an - , venirg, by E. B. Hawley
and J. B. McCollumil It has never been our
privilege to hear Mr.' McCollum upon the
stump before. We, together with the whole'
audience„ ltstened to
i bim with the deve
. 4 sat
isfactton,as the candid facts and burning truthi
that fell from his lips,Were presented in,. a for
cible, eloquent and - impressive manner and
"with malice for none and• charity for all."—
The audience receivkd something whicli they
could'earry home with them and tiensure up
in after years. Susquehanna, county was well
represented by as wide-awake Tilden and Hen
dricks Democrats, from 4uhurn township, as
can be found in the State, who came with sea . :
eral four-in-band teams, their banners flying in
the bvieze, headed by the Elk Lake Band, who'
furnished good mimic; The Meshoppen people
also have a very fine band, which discoursed
most excellent music, bbth afternoon and eve
ning. After stieh.ademonstration in the afterJ
noon we could not believe that it vas adviia
ble to attempt any evening display i l but to our
utter astonishment when we ca
..,..., • ut _from
supper the streets:.were abl4e with 250 torches
followed by a large crowd and.the streets, side
walks and porebes were filled withpeople, and
the :Meshoppen,' band were "doing'_'., the music
in an admirable 'style. Xion. - Joseph
exile in on the evening train and,. be and-the,
speakers were escorted to the wigwam which
was'again filled to its utmost capacity, and a
most soul inspiring meeting was 'held.' after
which the meeting adjourned - with a *vote of
thanks to the speakers, the band, and three al
most deafening cheers for Tilden, Hendricks
and lieforM, and .also for= our Congreisinan,
Hon. Joseph PoWell. A Grant correspondent
\ of the Pittston comet, with the usual infamous
malignity, of the basswood reporters and stump
speakers in the,detense of corruption,'said that
-"the Demoerata . of Meshoppen were to have a
big drunk and a small pole rattling." The se
quel shOwed that a baser falsehood was never
uttered, not even by a Grant organ or a 4rant
stump ,sp,ejtkPr.-, A Ilicirpry
