There is force in tldabove. When we notice !
turl.ulance and disorder among the youthful portion
of the community, we should examine with some
attention as to the causes, and thus in a majority of
cases wo would diecover, that the seniors had been
seriously culpable. We find this clearly illustrated
at the present time, In relation to the war fever of
the day. Many of our young men have been so
misled by passion and prejudice, that they fancy
that a war with any object, or on any grounds, how
ever rash and unjust, would be virtuous and patri
stic. They mistake passion for patriotism, and fury
for zeal--and thus they talk coolly of wholesale
slaughter tinder the sanction of the nation, as a very
delightful gnrne. Love of country, attachment to
free institutions, resittance of aggression, main
tenance of honor and right, cannot be too earnestly
inculcated. In a just war, too, every citizen should
' regard it as a duty to take his due share of the re
eponsibility and the risk. But let us not rush
blindfold into a struggle with any power, and cope
, cially let us endeavor to make ouryouth distinguish
between a denim for justice, a manly determination
to stand by national rights—and a vindictive thirst
for conflict, blood, and all their attendant horrors

Groat Fire in New Work.
One Hundred Buildings Burnt—Four Hundred
Destitute Families.
The New York Tribune of Monday the 2nd inst.
contains a lengthy account of a destructive fire that
broke out in that city on Saturday night last, about
midnight, its the stables of Messrs. Peltier and Pe
ters, on the corner of Sixth Avenue and 19111 streets,
which was more distressing in its effects than any
that has occurred in the city for a long time.
Nearly two very large blocks between the Sixth
and Seventh Avenues were entirely swept, and o
ver one hundred buildings, of all sorts, were consu
med—leaving more than four hundred families en
, titely destitute, many of them even of their clothes.
Not fifty dollars worth of furniture or property of
any kind, so far as can be ascertained, was saved
by any of these poor creatures, and not twenty indi
viduals were insured at all. A great portion of the
buildings burnt, were poor shanties, occupied most
ly by Irish families, and these suffer terribly.
The Tribune says this calamitous fire was the
work of an incendiary. It was told its on apparent
, ly good authority, that a man was seen to set the
stable on fire and run. Ile was immediately'pur
sued and would have been aught had not the pur
suer stutnbled over a sleeping watchman—thus
causing two catastrophies, the escape of the man
sod the waking up of the watchman from a refresh
ing nap. The spread of the fire was instantaneous
—every thing being very dry, and the buildings all
composed of the most combustible materials. It
also says: _ _ _
Nothing can be roneeived so utterly pail and
pitiful as the condition of these three thousand men,
women and children, (for the number will reach
that) thus in on instant reduced II absolute want
and hunger—shelterless, and many of them unclad
and with only a blanket about their shoulders.
They are sitting weeping and starving under the
fences and in the vacant lots—crowded into cow
pens and outhouses—the middle•lifed, the young,
the decrepid aged, the helpless . infant. What a
Mr. Clay and his ramily.
Though it is scarcely within the legitimate pro
vince of the public press, to make direct reference
the domestic concerns of citizens, yet when one has
become so much the " observed of all," as is Mr.
Clay, it seems proper to consider him, and his, in a
more public light than we do others, hence we copy
the following from the New York Tribune :
" We have not given currency to the painful ro
port that a son of Henry Clay lms just been smitten '
with insanity. hoping it may prove unfbunLed.—
We ore strengthened in this hope by a letter just
received front Lexington, dated May 25, giving on
account of " A Visit to Mr. Clay at Ashland," yet
containing no allusion to such an afflicting dispen
sation as is reported. The statement that Mr. Clay
has united with the Episcopal Church at Lexing
ton, is probably true. We shall publish the letter
of our correspondent as soon as may be—probably
in our next.
Wood, an Englishman, who was arrested a few
days since, in Boston, on the charge of firing and
robbing the house of Mr. Saunders in Portsmouth,
a few montns since, has confessed, and implicates
another Englishman named Clark, and an Irishman
named Murphy. All of them have been arrested.
Passengers by the mail achocfner Liffii, at Poet
Royal, from South America report that they heard
prior to their departure, of a fearful avalanche, the
effect of which had been felt on both the Atlantic
and Pacific sides of the great and central Cordillera
of the Andes. The snow descended in fearful
quantities from the Penult° do Ruiz, which i s situ
ated on the western side of the plains of Mariquin
ta, and from 150 to 200 miles west of Dogota, and
destroyed a large and populous district. It is sup
posed that twelve hundred lives hare been sacrificed
by this fearful calamity.
It gives us pleasure to state that Lancaster coun
ty has led off in its response to the circular of the
State Treasurer, and promises to pny in her State
Tax, amounting to about newly thousand dollars,
before the first of August. Well done, honest anti
repudiating, antimasonic Lancaster! We tee!
proud of the evidence she gives of her determina
tion to bear up and maintain the honor and credit
of the Commonwealth, notwithutanding the great
and unequal burthen of it that hue been placed 'limo
her. She has nobly led off in the praiseworthy
work, and we shall soon see whether the Lorofoco
counties will follow her example.—Pa. Telegraph.
Gov. Chambers, in his message to the Legis
lature of lowa, (now in session,) suggests that the
question of erecting that territory into a state, which
has once been rejected, be again submitted to the
people; and he intimates that n majority arc now
in favor of it.
Pyrrsurna.—The Pittsburg Arid, speaking of
the recent fire, says:
"There is no doubt that the stable of Mr. YounT
was fired designedly. Mrs. Nelson, who lived in
Mr. Day's house, back of the stable on Prospest st.,
saw two half grown boys come out of it n few min
utes previous to the breaking oat of the flames. A
little girl, daughter of Mrs. Catharine Beatty, saw
a boy about four and a half feet in height, wearing
a blue cloth cap, and blue frock coat, igniting a
match beside the stable. She approached him,
when he drew his cap over his face, and deliberate
ly applied the lighted match, end fled in the direc
tion of Washington street. This could easily be
done, as the alley was five or six feet higher than
the floor of the rtable. Several persons me the

small, but it increased so rapidly, that all efforts to
suppress it proved ineffectual."

Water has always been administered in Consump

all the virtues of Tar and Wild Cherry in n much

manner of preparing it, and its success in all Pul

I this. We say confidently, no medicine ever affect
