The prompt attention of councils in taking all the immediate measures in their power to alleviate our unhappy situation will coot:vend itself to the attention of our citizens. Mr. Durrah is to go to liarristturg to produce such Legislative action as can be obtained. IL seetns to us, that among other things, the Legislature cannot do better for us than to pass the 1401 giving the right of way to the Bal timore Railroad. This would tend, if the bill is accepted. to encourage our men of wealth, who are yet unpostrated, to build up the city again, and would bring capitalists to nettle among us. Is this too touch to ask of our Legislature I INCENDIARIES ARE ABROAD. Yesterday afternoon, an attempt was made to fire Wilmarth and Reynokl's board yard, on Irwin st. The doable dyed rtlisin had placed a bundle of matches. ignited in a heap of shavings, and thrust the whole into a board pile. It had begun to blaze when it was providentially discovered. Let the po lice of the city be on the watch. These devils in the shape of m en among us would destroy the whole city if they could. Laborers, Brickntakers, Bricklayers, Carpenter., ticc., will lie in immense demand 141 a short time.-- Preparations for rckuililing are already making, in some insianees. THE INDIVIDUAL LOSSES. The losses of some individuals and houses art emulsions, ranging Groin $5,000 upta $200,000. Thus, one firm of wholesale grocers, the heaviest holders of Sugar. Molasses, &c., in this city, and also owners of the building in which they did bu siness, cannot taw , lot mesa than horn 680 to $lOO,OOO. There is the Monongahela House also, which cost 6:,00,000, including the furniture. In tutu Lista:ices niaLitanta not only lost stocks COURAGE. BRETHREN, COURAGE. The Pittsburg Gazette holds the following cheer- ing language "We have carefully inquired of many of our clearest headed business men, those most thorough ly conversant with the resources of the city, as to the probable effect of this disaster upon its pros perity, and coupled with our own knowledge of the strength of the merchants who were burnt out, the position of their circumstances, tke., we are fully convinced that though the commercial prospects of the city are terribly shaken, yet it is not Wally prostrated. rind in due time will rise shove it all. Ottr liege tyanufitclories are untouched—the only mills of any importance which arc burnt being the Globe Factory, which is the smallest in the citv, the Kensington Iron Works, the Bakewell and l'ears' Glass Works. Various other small establishments were destroyed, but it is with great satisfaction we announce that the great leading branches are com paratively untouched, and that business, so far as they are concerned, will go on as usual. As for our wholesale merchants in the Grocery, Queensware. and Dry Goods branches who were burnt, some number of them, will commence forth with. Some aro wholly ruined, many much crip pled, but we believe the majority can go on as usual, and yesterday they were busy getting places of bu siness and offices. I t is with heartfelt pleasure we observe the forti tude with which they hear their losses. There is no repining—no despair—no sullenness; but a calm, determined spirit, which must carry them up again. The effect will be to set us bock for mo ment, but we never had more confidence in the strength and spirit of our merchants to overcome it all in time. It must he supposed that all the busi nese portions of the city are consumed. Most of the Dry Goode Jobbers are untoticged; so of the Hardware merchants, and a number of the heavy houses are out of the burnt district. And it fortu nately happens, too, that a large mount of groce ries from the east, for the city, had not arrived. We repeat. therefore, that though the city is terribly shaken, it is neither ruined, nor totally prostrated." Moot heartily do we hope that the cheeting lan guage of our brother will be sustained—ney, it must be sustained, and Pittsburg must rim from her ashes —and how precious, how costly are those ashes? A committee of the English Lutheran Church was sitting to accommodate in their building desti tute futuilies. We find the following interesting paragraphs in the Pittsburg Advocate of Monday the 19th. OUR INSVIIANCE OFFICES. -It is with delight we hear more favorable accounts from our offices, otter an investigation of their losses. ado not wish to hold out any encouragement not warranted by facts, but after comparing notes we feel author ized to say, in general terms, that the offices in this city as a whole will pay a very large per eentage on all their risks. The whole amount insured by them is about $BOO,OOO and at the very outside not over $850,000. Their capital in the aggregate will cover up a large proportion of this amount. The affairs of the Penn Company are in u better train was helievell and they will pay a large per centago on their risks. lONA aT Tux GROAT Frox.—A committee ap pointed by the Councils, after a full examination of the burnt district, having minutely visited every part of it, have arrived at the following result: 982 buildings burnt, value $2,586,500 Value personal property burnt, This does not include money or personal proper. ty of young men.or persons not keeping house. In calculating the value of real estate, the com mittees have estimated the cash value of the im provements as they were before the fire, and not what it will require to repair or rebuild them, which must exceed the above estimate at least 25 per cent. Tun &Ace Buirm—Mr. R. F. WGowan, the City Regulator, informs us that the burnt district covers fifty act es in the city, and six acres out of it. BUILDINGH BEGUN To-net !—As many of our in domitable citizens as are able to build, who are not too much crippled to do it. and could get contracts made, have done so. and new buildings arc begun to-day. This is the right kind of spirit. The Swallow. It would seem that, comparing the report of the number of passengers whose names are entered on the books of the Swallow, the number said to have escaped alive, that there is a deficiency of thirty two. Of these, the bodies of thirteen have been taken from the wreck and the river; whether the other nineteen will be among tire dead, or whether some error in the entry of the names will be discov ered, it is impossible now to judge. We fear, how ever, that more titan thirteen lost their lives in that fearful wreck. Among those recovered and taken to Albany, was the corpse of Miss Mary Torrey, of Pottsville, Pa. The inquest by the Coroner and his jury isgoing on, and the general tenor of the evidence seems to prove that the awful occurrence was the result of criminal carelessness. It is stated too, that the Pilot, Burnett, has admitted that he was in charge of the helm, before she reac'aett Four Mile Point, (four miles from Hudson.) The Senate of New York has given the matter into the hands of a Spe cial Investigating Committee, charged with power to send for persons and papers. A proper exami nation of the circumstances attendant upon the oc currence may, therefore, be looked for.—U. S. Ga.. The work on the new and enormous Anthra. cite Furnace, at Danville, (Pa.) to form an addition to the works of the Montour Iron Company, has been commenced. The furnace will be 16 feet across the bodies, forty feet high in the stack, and will he capable of making one hundred and twenty tons of pig metal a week. A rolling mill, belong ing to the same company, is under roof and will be soon completed. The building for a now Iron Foundry is also be ing erected at Danville. It will be put in operation during the coming season, and mainly for the cast ing of hollow-were. 'We are glad to notice these evidences of a revi val of the old prosperity in the interior of the State; every furnace erected makes new demand. upon our mines, and every pound of iron mined adds to the means of our commonwealth.

A bill for the relief of the sufferers in Pittsburg has passed the Legislature unanimously—appropri ating the sum of $50,000, to be placed into the hands of the city authorities, for the relief of the suffering. The bill also releases the outstanding stole and county taxes of the sufferers for the pre sent year, and for the next three years, and remits or refunds the amount of the licenses of dealers in merchandize whose establishments have been de stroyed. A detailed account of the awful calamity which has befallen the city of Pittsburg is contained in our columns, commencing on the first page. A Good Hint. We find the following in some of the papers, and copy it for the benefit of our subscribers residing at a distance who have never thought of the subject, and others who have found it inconvenient to call at our office in person.

A Ftvz Husinurin DOLLAR COVNTERFEIT.— Some impressions front a plate, engraved by Messrs. Toppan, Carpenter & Co., some years ago, for the Port Carbon Railroad and Canal Company, in Illi nois, of the denomination of $5OO, have, it seems, come into the possession of dishonest hands, and have been so altered. as to purport to be $5OO notes of the Philadelphia Bank. Three of them have already appeared here, and there are,probably,more in circulation. The signatures of the President and Cashier are well imitated, but the counterfeit is la little longer and wider than the genuine notes, and the plate is entirely:different as to lettering, style and viginettes. The viginette of the genuine note represents a locomotive and train of cars, as having just passed a rocky precipice, while that of the counterfeit represents two female figures, one with sheaves and a sickle, and the other with a rake; no one acquainted with the genuine note, could be defrauded by the counterfeit, but it is well calcula• ted to deceive strangers.— U. 8.

The informant states that "every person wears an lfflighted . countenance, and if it does not soon stop its ravages, the whole town will he inhab ited by lunatics!" None have died from it as yet, but numbers are afflicted with it. ES On the 17th inst., a fire broke out at Zanesville, (0.) and before it was subdued, the dwelling of Messrs. Park arid Dustman, Mrs. Prints, and the business rooms on main street of Messrs Britain & Gibbons, Williams& Greenland, Clements C War ner, were completely destroyed. The loss is set down at $1 . 1,00`, upon which there was on insu rance of $4.000. A young' man named Cooper, a son of Judge Cooper, died soon after the fire, in consequence of the excitement it awakened in him, About half past three o'clock on Saturday morn ing, the large Hotel at the junction of Fulton Ave nue and Atlantic street Brooklyn, owned and occu pied by John Barr, took fire and was totally des troyed. The engines were quickie) , on the spot, hut there being no water in the vicinity, returned home. It was supposed to be the work of an in cendiary, as the fire first caught near the door, It is the third time it has been burned down. The establishment of the Fall River Iron Works Company, nt Fall River, was, with the exception of the machine shop, destroyed by fire on Tuesday evening the Bth inst., occasioning a loss of about $6,000, which is covered by insurance. One or two small buildings standing near the Furnace were also consumed, and Messrs. Hawes, Marbel & Davol lost in stock and patterns about $1,600, on which thole is a partial insurance. 1 biussurry.—The Philadelphia U. Gazette says Wo copied an article some days since, relative to an artificial arm, which had been invent ed and used in Europe, by which many of the offi ces of the natural arm could be performed. A few days since Dr. Bean, of this city, brought to us an invention of the forearm and hand, which, from its appearance and use, seemed to be the model from which the European aim had been formed. And we have no doubt, that when applied, it could be made as useful in all the minutire, as was that to which our former statement referred. As the fin gers plied, and the thumb shared in the pecular motion, and the wrist joint showed its flexibility, we tho't how many things might he performed with such a substitute. writing especially; and no trouble some gout in the small joints, or rheumatism in the large articulations. Dr. B. is also the inventor of a machine for cut ting files, which was very highly approved of by the manufacturers in England, who were pleased with the amount and quality of the worlc which it could perform, but were afraid to introduce such a labor s eying machine into their establishment. Dr. B. has sought out many inventions, which seem to possess the capabilities of much good, if he should over succeed in bringing the public to a fair teat of them. Some evenings since in Bucksport, Me., while a meeting of Millerites woo in progress, a number of men disguised as negroes broke in upon it'and pro ceeded to administer an oath to each one of the devotees of Millerism, that they would not attend any more meetings or aid in propagating the doe-, trines of that iam, and this being done they were bustled out of the house. The disguised party then seized upon a large store of provisions and $4O in money, which the deluded party had gathered together, and intended to give both to the select men. We thought there wore good laws and stringent ones in Maine, but it appears that the people' i liave a little of the leaven of of Judge Lyncli i in them, and can make their laws nugatory fur the time.
