Great Fire in Upper Canada.
Tuelve townships Burnt Ocrr Two Islands En
tirely Swept Turet Hundred and Thirty Fami
lies Rendered Homeless Great Suffering.
From the Ottawa (U. C ) Citizen, May 28.
The Upper Ottawa c.uafry hi3.een visited
with a teriiL:c calamity.
srt houseless &wi aknc t
I&rge extent ci noiuti-y presents a bluckiieJ
picture of dcscItioa. Uu the lUtU iust., a cuu
. iiagratio:- s-rt the country from the Deep riv
er to wit Liu a short distance of the Donnechere
river, destroying houses fences, barns, cattle,
provisions, grain, and every description of pro
perty that came in its way. It is miraculous
that the lives of the inhabitants were saved, on
ly two persons it appears having perished.
The fire originated from the burning of new
:ana in tuuerem parts 01 tne country, una ow
ing to the warm sunshine and high wind on
Monday, it suddenly increased and spread with
fearful rapidity. Duriug the early past of the
day the wind blew from the southwest, and car
ried the fire from the rear of the. townships in
Upper Canada northwards towards the settle
ments on the Ottawa river. At the same time
it was making alarming progress in Sheen and
Chichester, on the north of Lower Canada shore,
tad on the upper or westerly part of Allumetta
Island. Soon after one o'clock the wind sud
denly came round to the west and blew with in.
created violence. The fire, which till then w ts
scattered and spread over a considerable extent
of country, through the townships of Pembroke,
itafford, and Westmeath, which lie in order as
named, soon united and became a dense mass of
fiauie, and swept with fearful fury through the
iuterior, passing over portions of Ross, Uroiu
lej and Horton, towards the Bonnechere river,
louring the greater part of the afternoon the
scene was truly terrific. On the AUumette Isl
aai the destruction going on, at the same time,
was equally dreadful.. The island is fourteen
miles long, aud was swept from head to foot.
Only two or three dwellings remain out of about
cue hundred, thus leaving seventy-nine families
tere alone houseless. The Calamet Island also
The country burnt over extends in Upper Ca
nada, from the upper part of Pembroke and Staf-
urJ to near tae Bouuechere river, in Horton and
AJamstan, tne aistaoce in that direction being
nearly thirty miles, and from the best informa
tion it appears that it would average some twelve
miles in width. The townships which suffer
here are Pembroke, Stafford, Westmeath, Brom
ley, Ross and Horton,' and about two hundred
families are in them left houseless ; in fact to
tally "burned out."
The Allumette island is about fourteen by five
reiies in extent, with ninety-seven families, in a
s.ruiiar condition. - The country on the north
t-hore being settled only a short distance back
Trem the river, contains proportionally fewer
settlers; and there the number of sufferers may
be put at about thirty families. This would
make altogether something near three hundred
aal thirty families sufferers by this calamity,
la some instances the individual loss exceeds
cue thousand pounds. The area of country
burned over is about four hundred and fifty
squire miles, total.
To provide seed for the ground and food for
four months to come will require, at the lowest
computation, seven thousand pounds. Less than
shut sum will not do it. One-fourth of this
tTnouat may perhaps bo raised in this part of
CiUtida, but where is the remainder over four
thousand pounds to come from ? We look to
ibe Legislature for this assistance. For every
giod reason it should be granted forthwith.
Ihe necessity of thecase the importance of the
demand the awful nature of the calamity and
irom this section of Canada, should be grounds
sufficient to warraut the appropriation requi
red. Let the Legislature speedily appropriate
five thousand pounds at least to meet immediate
aad absolute necessities.
The Arctic Expedition.
The brig Advance, under the control of Dr.
Kase and an intrepid crew, sailed from N. York,
in Tuesday last, for the Acrtic regions in search
. Sir John Fka.nklin. A steamer had previ
ously taken a party of about one hundred gen-tein.e-n
to the brig at her auchorage off the baP
t'-rv, where a touching parting took place with
i!ie adveuturous officers and crew. Among the
ompany were Judge Kane, of Philadelphia, fa
ther of Dr. Kane, aud his three younger sons;
.V. W. J. Leiper, Dr. K's. uncle; Henry Grin
i.t'.'., the proprietor of the expedition, and his
fiou Cuinciius Grinnell; Capt. Levy, f the Na
y. atd others.
iiie ent.i e r.uaibr of men in the Advance is
'.h)y seventeen, and all of them are quite young.
The following is a full list of their names:
Ulisha M. Kane, M. D., U. S. N., Command
ing the Expedition.
J. Wall Wilson, First Mate; Henry Brooks,
Second Mate; Amos Bronsell, Third Mate; Jas.
Mflfrv. Fnnrlh M? Phristnnher Ohison.
Samn Geo. Stephenson, Jefferson T. Par
ker, Geo. J. Whittell, William E. Godfrey, Geo.
K-illcy, C. Blake.
William Morton, Steward ; Teter Sheppard,
0ok; J. J. Hayes, Surgeon; Augustus Soutag,
Astronomer; Henry Goodfellow, Naturalist.
The scientific outfit of the expedition is as
A complete Daguerreotype Apparatus.
Two Astronomical Instruments a Transit In
strument and a Gamboy Theodolite.
Magnetic Intruments Magnetometer, Incli
tatorium and Azimuth Compass.
Meteorological Instruments 5 Barometers, 2
Ameroid Barometers, 6 dozen Thermometers,
and 3 Maximum and Minimum Thermometers.
A bottle of Saline Waters, used as a condenser
ia Meteoric line apparatus, to be employed for
lasting point of refrigeration.
The brig is provisioned for three years, and
is provided with quantities of snow shoes, wood
en sabots, sledges, India-rubber boats, buffalo
tkins, &c, and an additional supply of furs will
MCXaincd in Greenland. There is also a li
brary on board, and nothing seems to have been
neglected for the outfit of the brig or the com
fort of the men. We have a strong confidence
that Dr., Kane, even if he should not discover
the traces of Sir John Franklin, will solve the
problem of the open polar sea, and make many
interesting discoveries in reference to the Arc
tic region. He is peculiarly fitted for the task
he has undertaken, and we wish him and his
gallant associates God speed in their noble un
dertaking. Blunders in the Pulpit.
A celebrated teacher once prescribed to his
'theological pupils, "never correct an "error in
be pulpit unless it be bersey or nonsense," We
-remember hearing a clergyman say in hia dis-"-our6e,
"Blessed are the eyes which hear, and
the ears that see what you see." He did not
correct himself, and everybody perceived it to
he a mere slip of the tongue, we have tateiy
read in an exchange paper, that Mr. Imlach,
late minister of the Muirbouse, near Dundee,
as remarkable for his absence of mind. In
his prayer one day he said, "Lord, bless all the
rank and degrees of persons, from the king on
the dunghill, to the beggar on the throne."
Then recollecting himself, he added, "I mean
from the beggar on the throne, to the king on
the dunghilL" We have often heard of men
making mistakes worse, by attempting to cor
rect them. They blunder ia their correction
wire than in original error. " '

schooner Oracle, in saving tne lives and reliev
ing the distress of the passengers and crew of
the William and Mary, are worthy also, of the
uiguest commendation. Had Capt. Sands been
actuated by the same selfish and inlinmnn fpl-

more to saving ihe valuable cargo of the
