Another Disgraceful Firemen's
On Saturday eveding a fire broke out in the
Lamp Black Factory of Mr. Thomas Matlack in
Schuylkill Frcint street, betwean Callowhill and
Wood street. The fire burned during the whole night
and the upper part of the building was destroyed.
The building was formerly used as a foundry. The
walls aro still standing, and from their great thick
ness, are as good as ever.
The first alarm occurred about 11 o'clock, and
while the engines were in service a difficulty arose
bOtween the Fairmount Engine and Good Will
Hose Companies. The second alarm was about 6
o'clock. The Fairmount Engine again repaired to
the fire, and had just got into service, when another
It is thought that no injury was done to persons
by the latter, although nine reports were heard.
A pistol was fired in Vine street, the ball of which

latter were met at every corner by Forties 01 the
mob, who drove them from place to place; they
however succeded in getting the engine to the cor
ner of Schuylkill Third and Vine street. here
those protect:ng the engine were overpowered, and
the apparatus was taken away from them.
The Good Will members, and those who assis.
ted them, ran her out Vine street to the Schuylkill.
Creasing the Wire Bridge, they continued for about
the illittinee of a mile, breaking her on the way,
and on iriirifig at a hill, they let her go down with
great violence; lind from thence sent her into an old
stone quarry. The engine fell about forty feet up.
on the rocks, and on reachhig the bottom was a
perfect wreck. As noon g. the Sheriff was notified
of the disturbances, he called upon Alderman Ash,
the Police Magistrate of the diebict of Spring Gar
den,and they proceeded to the spot, but it that time
the Fairmount Engine had been token away, and
broken up.
The attack scorned to be premeditated on the
part of the stronger party—as the Columbia Hose
and Northern Liberty Hose
„Companies, and Ike
Southwark Engine Company were compelled to
leave the ground. the former without her hose, in
consequence of the demonstrations which were
made towards them.—The fight while it lasted was

principles concerned in the disgraceful affair may
be ferretted nut and brought to justice.

No title can intdgino what gratification we feel in
commuhiudting this intelligence to the Prosident,that
functionary having heretofore borne away the palm
for long me“age . e. Though we have "licked the Brit
jolters, who licked the world," it in not improbable
that the Emperor of China has us by
out-presidenting the President. At ony rate Mr.
Polk will have this consolation—the reading of the
document and the necessary reflection thereupon,
will be a task weighty enough to excuse his being
"at home," to those who still prate* him about office.
By the way might ho not, with greet propriety,

but at the last account, he was olive and well, and
on his way down Fish Creek, towards the Ohio
river--perhaps carrying out some new project of
annexation! His absence will materially derange
the business connected with the approaching Court.
Later.—A committee of Enquiry, who have been
in search for the lost Sheriff, returned yeiterday,
with his horse, which was found some nine or ten
miles from the Ohio river; and report that a man
answering his description, wee seen on foot, head
ing towards the river. He was deeply involved, in
consequence of a habit of Gambling.
We are truly sorry to publish these facts but our
duty requires it as a warning to others. The au
thors of his disgrace, however, should have their full
share of the punishment.

This will certify that I have used
your Vegetable Universal Pills, fur indigestion and
billions complaint which had almost proved fatal to
me. I had been under what was supposed good !
medical treatment, rind used various advertised
remedies, but without any good effect. I then
made trial of your celebrated pills, which gave me
immediate relief, and moon affected a perfect cure.
I have since used them in my family w ith the best
effect. They are the best and easiest purgative we
ever used.
I am respecifully yours,
