The ilVirelling house and barn of Mr. Seymour F; Benedict, at Walton, 9ela ware colinty, N. Y„ was destroyed by fire on Saturday night the 7th instant, and dreadful to relate, his wire and Ave children perished in the flames. As near 'as can be ascertained, the fire was com- • municated from a candle that the children took on going to bed, up stairs. Mr. Benedict and his wife were first awaken ed by the fire breaking through from the chamber into the room where he and his wife and their youngest child slept. They immediately rushed out of the house, car rying the child with them, The children up stairs were crying for help, surrounded by the flames, and Mr. Benedict urged them to jump from the a indow—that lie would catch them. The eldest did so, being then already touch burned, but the others did not, either through fear tic ina bility. Meanwhile, it is supposed that Mrs. B. had gone into the house with the vain endeavour to get them out ; and the little child, about four years old, Uncon scious of danger, followed her; and all perished. A Child Killed by Beare. A few days since a child was killed in the northern part of Decatur, co. la., about sixty miles North west of Cincinnati. The Bulletin says :--" The child was some distance from the house gathering nuts when the bears attacked and killed it. Shortly after this fate they met a man in the woods and chased him home, pur •suing him to his very door, when he took down his gun and shot one of them with- in a few steps of his door, and with some of his neighbors, succeeded shortly after in killing the other. This happened in 'the most populous part of the country.-- We did not learn the paticulars nor the names of the persons who were concern ed, but we have it from a good source." Dreadful Doings In Olio. An affray took place at Georgetown, , (0.) on Monday (the 9th inst.,) between some Kentucky negro hunters and a num ber of abolitionists. some runaway ne groes, belonging to Col. Edward Towers, 'of Mason connty, (Ky,) were concealed In the houses of Robert Miller, and Ab salom King, and Miller's house being searched, two of the runaways were dls covered in it. Miller, while aiding them . . to escape, was knocked down, and so dreadfully stabbed that he survived but a ..f sfew minutes. The captors then proceed ed, with the two slaves bound, toward King's house, but were met on the road by four or five men. who resisted the pro posed endeavor to search King's dwell ing. Both parties were well armed, and & conflict ensued, in which Col. Tower's son was shot dead, and King so badly wounded that he can hardly survive.-- The Sherilland his possee at this period stopped the riot, attested the insurgents, and conveyed them to Georgetown.— Shortly afterward an additional number of Kentuckians arrived and they imme diately hung one of the slaves for resist ing a brother of Col. Towers, whn had ' captured him, burned Miller's and King's houses to the ground, and beat a Mr. Al exander Gillilland till his life was despair ed of. The Georgetown Telegraph, from an extra of which the above is gleaned, adds The number of the Kentuckians is increasing hourly, and the whole neigh borhood is up in arms. The Sheriff is ac tively engaged in attetnpting to quell the riot." Report of Secretary of War. We have received the report of the Sec retary of War, Which occpuies six closely printed columns of the Washington Globe. The following is a synopsis of the report from the War Department. The Secretary leads off with an eulogy q/ on the arrangement of the different bu reaus under his department, comptehetuk ing the "military establishment," "pen sions and bounties for military services," "improvements of rivers and harbors," of mineral lands and all Indian affairs." He notes the fact that the present mili tary organization of the United States is U for times of peace," but still with a iiew to the purpose of preserving among us as a people, all " that military knowledge, without which a nation is never prepared to assert her own dignity, oor ever defend her soil from invasion." He thinks that if any untoward circumstance should drive us to the necessity of war, our health, pop. ulation and skill in the mechanic arts, would enable us to cope with any nation. The remounting of the second Regiment of Dragoons is recommended as the very best force for military service in the prai ries. He notes the real termination of the Florida war, and the restoration of conti. dence in that Territory. He recommends central barracks in healthy sites on the seaboard, and not the least politic of his recommendations, is the one that buildings for religious wor ship and schools be erected as attachments to all our public fortifications. He recommends an addition to' the ' horse er light field artillery tutee." and totes the fact that "superiority in the Corse artillery force in the French revo utionary war, generally secured the vie [cry." Ile expl•esses a high opinion of the West Point Academy—says the appoint ments of the cadets are impartially made, and regrets that a portion of the people attach to it what he apprehends to be " a mistaked and grOundless charge of aris tocratic tendency." The Secretary evi dently fears that public opinion is setting against the Academy ; and in his closing remarks, he asks that a committeee of Congress may be appointed to visit the Institution, and report such amendments or reform its management as may be deem ed necessary. The Secretary thinks that with a mil itary establishment like ours, it should be the policy of the Government to encour age the resignation of officers after twen ty.five years service, and recommends as an inducement, that Congress pass a law "entitling an officer after twenty-five years of good and faithful service, to a section of public land, and two years fur lough on full pay, with the condition, should he avail himself of this privilege, that his commission be vacated at the termination of his furlough." The Secretary recommends the erec tion of per mament fortifications on sev eral parts of the seabbard. He urges the policy of a system of defence by perma nent fortifications. A national foundry, with all the means of trying and testing iron ores coining from different parts of the country—also for making model guns, and securing the safety of cannon, is appropriately spoken at as necessary. The Secretary giv . es well digested and cogent reasons ,Ln the necessity and utility of such an establish• men t. The Secre tart' says that he has no doubt of our legitimate claim to the territory west of the Rocky Mountains, and hints the necessity of an organization of some manner or government over the American citizens that are every day settling it. He recommends an appropriation of 96100,000 for erecting the military posts from the Missouri river to •the Rocky Mountains: Report of Secretary of Navy, From the annual report of the Secreta. ry of the Navy, we condense the most important portion thereof:—The Navy of the United States at the present time con• sists of six ships of the line, one razee, fourteen Irigates, twenty one sloops of war, sixteen brigs and schooners, thrett store ships and eighteen steamers afloat. There are on the stocks, in an unfin ished state four ships of the line, three frigates, one store ship, an iron steamer at Pittsburg, and one at the Navy Yard at Washington to be used as a water tank. Since the last annual report, after care ful survey and inspection, it was found most conductive to the public interest to sell the frigate Hudson, and the store ships Consort and Chipola, and orders , have been recently given for the sale of the Pioneer. In each case the Navy Agent conducting the sale, was limited as to the price, and thy sales are satisfacto ry. The Hudson was originally built by contract for a foreign government, was found to be unworthy of repair, and it was believed to be more advantageous to sell than to break her up. The force estimated for and proposed to be employed during the year, com mencing on the Ist day of July, 1845, consists of 10 frigates, 13, sloops of war, 7 brigs, 2 schooners, 4 armed steamers, 4 store ships and 2 small vessels. It is not so larg e as that estimated for in the last annual report—butit is some what larger than that first authorized by the appropriations for the current fiscal year: . The Secretary states that he has com plied with the law of June 1844, by which it is provided that the whole num ber of petty officers, seamen, ordinary seamen, landsmen and boys in the Naval service during the current fiscal year shall not exceed at any one time, seven thousand five hundred men. Acting un der this law he says that the department promptly gave orders to suspend the en listment of men, and to discharge the crews of the vessels as they reach our own waters, until the required reduction was effected.
