The Pittsburg American of Wednesday last says:
We had another serious fire last night, which
broke dut in the stable of Mr. Samuel Young, the
" literary draymar," near the head of Seventh st.,
and between Washington and Prospect streets.—
From 25 to 30 houses were destroyed, principally
occupied by the poorer class of people, to whom it

The buildings were mostly if not all on grounds

to learn the loss principally falls. The value of
the buildings is probably about 15 or $16,000 and
tart paitally if any insured.
At this lire again, was felt the scarcity of water.
We know not how this water business is managed
or whether it is left to manage itself; we only know
that when a fire occurs, it is, by some strange unac
countability, among the missing. It is time this
should be placed in the hands of some person or
persons with better claims to confidence. The
councils will also tree the propriety of multiplying
the number of fire plugs, so that water cart be ob

think it probable, that of the members of the Bar,

where gentlemen of acknowledged ability have stu
died law, and been admitted to the Bar, they have
been compelled to abandon the profession, for some
more certain employment, however arduous. So
also with Physician's. We have ho less than three
Medical Colleges in Philadelphia at the present
time, and last season the students in attendance
numbered over a thousand .f Yes a thousand can
didates for medicine in a single city. Other Col
leges may be found in all parts of the Union, and
we think it possible that at least from two to three
thousand young mo graduate as physicians every
year. How are they to get along ! They cannot
by their professions; they must, after a year or two
of hope and trial, turn their attention to something
else. But it is not time for parents to become con
vinced of the folly of educating their sons--unless in

Disposition of the Piro Fund.
A long and able roport has been made by the
committee of councils appointed on this subject.—
It recommends tho immediate distribution of the
money In gift to the sufferers—all except the State
donation, which it purposes to return to the treas-
The first is undoubtedly correct. The money
should be given, not loaned, to those suffering by
the fire, rather than to sufferers by the fire. A man
is worth $lOO,OOO. lie has lost $lO,OOO by the
fire—he is a sufferer, but he is not of that class
contemplated by the contributors of relief. Though
his loss is to be regretted, his situation is not ono
that would call forth the sympathies of the world ,
nor could his relief have been contemplated by the
donors of this fund. It is intended for those really
suffering by their losses. Most of the smaller suf
ferers babe doubtless already been provided for.—
Many, we feel assured, if not most of them, have
been fully reinstated. The remainder of these
should be looked to and then a higher class of
As to the State donation, we have no decided ob
jection to the course indicated by Councils. We
have only some doubts—very strong ones however
—as to the power or right of Councils to any say
in the matter. They represent neither the donor
nor donee, and their right to act farther in the mat
ter than as executor of an estate may be highly
questioned, for, in our opinion, in that light they
stand to the parties. But, the right granted, we
should vote, we believe, with Councils. So should
we also as a party—as a sufferer by the fire. But
as the tight in the opinion of many is doubtful, we
think Councils, as a matter of delicacy, should re
frain from an act so decisive. Desirable as it may
be to retorts this money, Councils should weigh
the matter well, before they assume so very doubt
ful a right, coupled with such a burden of respon
sibility. The policy of returning it may be well
enough argued. The right of Councils to do so is
a very different thing. We repeat they aro but the
executors of a legally proved will.
Another Murder in Chester County
About two weeks since a man named Peace was
tried at West Chester for the Murder of a man with
whom ho went outgunning, and acquitted. From
the evidence published we cannot conceive how ho
was acquitted, if the jury had no conscientious
scruples against finding " a true verdict, according
to the evidence," that would incur the penalty of
death. But Peace, with guilt stamped upon him
was acquitted, and now we have a report of another
cold blooded and horrible murder, following upon
the heels of the guilty acquittal. On Sunday last,
Mr. Patton, a very respectable farmer, residing with
in a mile and a half of West Chester, Pa., with a
part of his family started for church, leaving his
house and en infant child in charge of his son Wil
liam, a lad of 14 years of age, and a bound girl of
15. About half-past ten o'clock, a men named
Jabez Boyd, who had lived with Mr. Patton some
years since, entered the house, carefully locked all
the doors, and with a pair of fire-tongs, deliberately
beat the boy's brains out and threw the body into
the fire, which was burning on the kitchen hearth.
The girl, the moment the boy was attacked, with
admirable presence of mind, snatched the infant
from the cradle, raised the window, threw it out,
followed herself, and gave the alarm to the neigh
bors. The neighbors soon gathered, and after try
ing, found all the doors fastened, and had to break
the front door ih. They found the lifeless body of
the boy in the fire, partially consumed, and the cup
board in Which Mr. I'. kept his money broken open,
and about thirty dollars in gold and silver taken.
The Philadelphia Times says:
It is supposed that Boyd had not left the house
when the neighbors arrived, but when they rushed
in at the front door, escaped by the way of the out
side cellar door. To strengthen this supposition,
the neighbors say that the cellar door was shut when
they entered the the house, and that after the con
fusion of the moment was over, it wm found open
—no one knew by whom.
It is also supposed that it was the murderer's in
tention when he entered the house to kill both the
boy and the girl—take the money and then set fire
to the house. Boyd is a young man of bad charac
ter. He was imprisoned in West Chester three
years ago on a charge of larceny, and broke jail—
since whirls time he has not been heard of until
within a few weeks.
Boyd was followed and arrested at his father's
house. Our informant did not state whether the
money was found in his possession or not, but the
girl recognized him as the murderer of the boy, and
the citizens of the neighborhood have no doubt as
to his guilt.—Pa. Telegraph.

The Title of Esquire
Real Esquires are of seven sorts: 1. Esquires
of the king's body, whose number is limited to four.
2. Tho eldest sons of knights, and their eldest sons
born during his life time. It would seem that, in
the days of ancient warfare, the knight often took
his practical military education, employing mean
while as his esquire. 3. The eldest sons of the
youngest sons of peers of the realm. 4. Such an
the king invests with the culler of SS, including
the kings arms, heralds, ',Ste. The dignity of es-,
quire nos conferred by Henry IV and his sums
SUM, by the investiture of the collar and the gift of
a pair of nil +el. spurs. Gower the poet was such an
esquire by creation. 5. Esquires to the knights of
the Bath, for life, and their eldest sons. 6. Sheriffs
of counties, for life, coroners and justices of the
peace, and gentlemen of the royal household, while
they continue in their respective offices. 7. Barris
ters-at-law, doctors of divinity, law, and medicine,
mayors of towns, and some others, are said to be of
malarial dignity, but not actual esquires. Suppos
ing this enumeration to comprise all who are enti
tled to esquireship, it will be evident that thousands
of persons styled esquires are not so in reality. It
is a prevailing error that persons possessed of £3OO
a year in land are esquires, but an estate of 50,000
would not confer the dignity. Nothing but one or
the other of the conditions above mentioned is
sufficient.—Curiosities of Heraldry.
What is Guano Lihe?
The Philadelphia Chronicle of Saturday week,
says: " We had the pleasure of examining; yester
day, a sample of the celebrated Guano, from Icha
boe, the fertilizing properties of which aro so world-
renowned, and the speculation and commerce in
which are almost unparalleled. The specimen wo
beheld resembled a dark grayish looking earth, with
a peculiarly pungent scent of ammonia, vulgarly
called " spirits of hartshort." A small quantity
placed in a phial would render every service ex
pected of the fashionable flacon of volatile salts.
We are not surprised, therefore, that the mate of a
vessel laden with it; on a recent trial, declared that,
to him, it was so agreeable, that he usually carried
a small piece of it ,about with him in his pocket.
We have no doubt that its fecundating quality is
chiefly owing to the ammoniacul gas with which it
is so highly charged, arid the singular chemical se.
lotion that gas exhibits to electricity. The Guano,
withilte exception of its earthiness, is much like
ammoniacurn, a gum imported for medical purposes
front Turkey and the East Indies."
Singular Law Case.
The New Orleans Crescent City of the 15th
ult., has the following notice of a case just tried
in that city :
CITY Coral. —Before Judge Cotten.—A novel
case was decided yesterday, in this Court, in which
a boy aged about ten years was claimed by two per
sons, each maintaining that she math° real mother.
The plaintiffs, John Paul and Martha Paul, his
wife, had loot their son about two weeks ago, and
some few days since had been informed that the de
' fendant, a Mrs. Hughes, had the boy in hor posses
sion. The latter had loot a son some three years
and a half ago, and found this child whom she and
some friends said they identified as the child lost at
that time by Mrs. Hughes. The case occupied the
Court for three days, but judgment was given in
favor of the plaintiffs, it having been satisfactorily
proved that the boy was the son of John and Mar
tha Paul. For some time, ho (the child) persisted
in stating that he really was the son of Mrs. Hughes,
and denied his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Paul, and it
was not until he was removed from the influence of
Mrs. Hughes' presence, that he admitted his real
identity. We believe that this is a case without
precedent, except the one stated to have been
brought before King Solomon, which is recorded in
The Baltimore Sun says, that Mr. Hector Per-
kins, of East street, near Pitt, on Friday last, stir
fered the painful operation of an atnputation of the
right leg below the knee; the operation was per
formed by Dr. Theobald. The necessity for this
operation was caused by a wound received by a ball
in the memorable and hard-fought battle of Chip
pewa, on the sth of July, 1814. For nearly thirty
one years Mr. P. has suffered occasional pain, but
for several months past he has suffered most in
tensely, until at last, the old soldier consented to
lose his leg. He has been doing well since the am
putation, and the hope is strong that he will speedi
ly recover from its effects.
cO' The Pittsburg Age says, "Troyer, the
Steeple-King, ascended to the top of the Third
Church Steeple on Friday, 23d instant, and put a
new vane on it, we believe. His hat has been on
top of the spire, over the ball, for some days; he
removed it, flourished it around his head and threw
it down ; and after standing on the cross-pieces and
giving one or two cheers, descended, bringing down
with him the ladders, ropes, etc., used by him in re
pairing the steeple. Quite a number of our citi

LIABILITIES or AN EinTort.—Lord Denman

tight to insert any paragraph before he has ascer

true." Then, says " Punch," in the case of the
late Liscoveries made by the Earl of liosse's Teles
cope, an editor ought to have proceeded to the dif

statement respecting them. According to Lord

From the New Orleans Picayune of the 16th
Wt., we take the following account of a scene
calculated to excite every breast capable of ordina
ry human feellegs:
Passing through Darwin° street about noon
yesterday, a crowd, composed of men, women 'and
children attracted our attention. The object of
their curiosity—or rather their pity—we found to
be a delicate, debilitated-looking mulatto boy, alai=
ten years old. An old negro on one side, and a
stick on the other, supported him, as he endeavored
to move along, though it was evident, that any mo
tion, however slow. was too much for his prostrate
physical powers. ‘Ve inquired what was the mat
ter with the boy, and were answered by his shirt
being raised up off his back, and heavens! how ex
pressive of fiendish cruelty was the spectacle that
presented itself! The poor boy's back and body
were one mass of raw, trembling, skinless, partipu
trid, lacerated flesh ! Ravines, as it were, in his
carcase, had been cut by the lash, and he appeared,
altogether, a victim of the most wanton and heart
less cruelty, which it was possible for other than a
fiend to inflict. All we could learn of this mon
strous cruelty we had from the old negro who help
ed the poor boy along; wo give it for what it is
worth, promising that we shall seek for the authen
tic facts of the case and lay them before the public.
The old negro said that lie and the boy belonged
to C. Donnibourg, who lives at the comer of An
nunciation and Richard streets; that DotiniboUrg
lost a watch, and charged the boy with stealing it.
Some ten or fourteen days since he bad him put ni
the police jail of the First Municipality, and there,
by his order, says the old man, was the inhuman
punishment inflicted en him. The boy himself
says that ho received twenty-five lashes a day from
the day he was imprisoned till Thursday last. 'fits
old man, by direction of his master, was taking him
home; but two citizens, seeing that he must die by
the way, informed Recorder Baldwin of his condi
tion, who promptly had him brought to the police
oilier, where he was examined by Dr. Picton.
As the doctor examined the wounds, they were
necessarily exposed to the bystanders, who, by an
involuntary exclamation, expressed their indigna
tion against his torturer. The doctor pronounced
the boy in a precarious condition, but said that by
proper treatment he might recover, and advised that
he might be sent to the C:tarity Hospital. The
Recorder ordered that he be at once taken there, and
thither was he carried by the police, on a litter, his
The Pirate babe.
The New York Courier and Enquirer gives the
following account of this young man :
Tan. Pro ATE BAna.--The term for which this
young man, convicted of a most outrageous mur
der, was respited, expires early next month, and he
is in a painful state of suspense as to his chances
for a further reprieve. His conduct during the past
yea, has certainly afforded no marked evidence that
he has very seriously repented of his former life, or
made very good resolutions for the future, in case
he should be pardoned, an act of clemency for
Which, it is said, lie looks with some confidence.
An incident occurred a few days since in his cell,
Which goes very far to illustrate the truth of what
w•e have just said. A young sailor, (Henry Far
iner,) on whose testimony mainly Charles Veil was
convicted of a conspiracy to commit on art of pira
cy on board the ship Natchez, Capt. Waterman,
called to see and sympathize with him. Babe in
quired the name of his visitor, and when Farmer
gave it, Ito pushed him out of his cell with rude
Wen., exclaiming at the same time with a dread
, ftil oath, "How dare you come into my cell?"
' This feeling in Babe, was aroused by the fact that
Farmer was alone instrumental in detecting and
breaking up the conspiracy of Veil on board the
Natchez, and to the further circumstance that on his
testimony mainly, was 'Veil convicted, for both of
Which he certainly deserved credit at the hands of
every right minded person. Not so, however, with
Babe, who probably could not forget that he too
was convicted on the testimony of a shipmate (Mat
thews.) He has had entirely too much freedom in
prison ; and in the course of a trial at the Court of
Sessions recently, it was proved that one of the late
deputy-keeper., passed his evenings in Babe's cell,
drinking and playing cards.
We learn that the President has granted Babe
ahother respite to the Ist of June, 1846.
Important Discovery in Manufat
tore of Iron.
The New Haven Palladium gives an account of
experiments made by Mr. W. C. Green, of NeW
Jersey, at the Boston Iron Works of Sherman &
Atwater, in New York, whose extensive iron form
dories are in New Jersey. Mr. Green's improve
ment is in the process of puddling the iron from the
pig to the bar. Instead of using the pig Iron, which
costs about 35 dollars the ton, ho is enabled to use
a large portion of the ore, which costa but two dol
tars and fifty cents per ton, by which he effects, in
labor and material, a saving of more than 33 per
cent. and gives a far better quality of iron than
that which is obtained from the pig; as much bet
ter in appearanoe as China is better than earthen
ware. Those who have seen specimens of the iron
made in this way, and compared them with others
made by the old process, speak of the contrast as
very great. The secret of Mr. Green consists
chiefly in mixing some composition with the ore
while in a molten state, by which the carbon is
more readily exlmusted, and the iron, in half the
time of the old process, left tougher and finer.
We ore aware that experiments, tending to the
same result, have been extensively made in our
State,—with what general success, however, we
have not been informed. We hope those who have
conducted them, will make public the result of their
essays, as the daily increasing demand for iron—
the numberless new purposes to which it is devo
ted, and the immense interest which Pennsylvania
has in keeping up with all processes tending to
cheapen its manufacture, render the subject one of
the greatest importance.
We copy the following paragraph from the Netv
York Mirror. It will certainly astonish some people
Professor Bronson stated in his concluding lee ,
tore last week, that if a drop of human blood be
subjected to examination by the oxhydrogen mi
croscope, and magnified some twenty millions of
tunes, all the species of animals now existing on
the earth, or that have existed during the different
stages of creation for millions of years past, will
there bo discovered. in the blood of a healthy per
son, all the animalculm are quiet and peaceable;
but in the blood of a diseased person, they are furi
ous, raging and preying upon each other. This he
stated in illustration of his position that man con.
tains within himself all the principles of the mil
-1 verse. It was also asserted that if a dead cat be
thrown into a pool of stagnant water, and allowed
to dissolve there, a drop of water taken from any
part of the pool and examined as above, will show
every species of animal of the cat kind that has
ever existed on the earth, raging and destroying one
another. The bodies of all the lower animals be
ing thus made up of animalcule similar to them
selves; and the body of man being compounded of

cd- Dr. Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry.--The
following certificate was given to Messrs. Knowlvo
and Cheeseman, who are old and respectable mer
chants at Knovvlesville, Orleans county, state of N.
York, whose attestation is a sufficient guarantee of
linoteksville, June 26, 1843.
This certifies that for several years I have been
at times subject to a violent cough, and occasional
ly a high fever; raised much corrupt matter, and
was, finally thought to be in the last stage of con
sumption. At this time I heard of Dr. Wistor's
Balsam of Wild Cherry, and commenced taking it,
and finding immediate relief from it, I put all other
medicine aside. I took several bottles, which en
tirely cured my cough, the fever left me, and my
appetite was soon restored. From its good effects
in my case, I would recommend this medicine to all
who are afflicted with an affection of the lungs.
The above certificate is strictly correct.

Always cast their earliest glance,
And, with smileless face, consider
If they, too, won'tstand a chance
To make some clever fellow comas
In bliss, and often too—in trouble."
