Ox Monday of Inst week a fire broke
' out In nn upper room of the Patent
offlce, which resulted In the destruction
of the valuable models and records of
the office. The land office was nlso
damaged and many valuable pripers
Were wet and destroyed. It Is feared the
fire will cause much trouble and expen
sive litigation. The fire is supposed to
have originated from a defective flue.
The loss is variously estimated at from
5300,000 to $700,000. -
John S. Morton, President of the
Market Street Passenger Railway Com
pany, In Philadelphia, has confessed to
having over-issued the stock of that
company to the amount of 10,000 shares,
or $1,000,000. He has resigned his posi
tion as President of the road, and prom
ises to make a full confession as to the
amount of the fraud. The over issue
was commenced in 1870, and lias been
going on ever since.
The present treasurer of the West
Philadelphia passenger railway compa
ny says the examination of the stock
book of the company develops the fact
of an over issue of 12,000 I This amount
added to the legal stock issue of the com
pany of 8,000 shares, give a total of just
20,000. This, at $50 per Bliare, would
make $1,000,000, double the company's
authorized capital, of which, however,
only $100,000 is subscribed and paid for.

Gen. Pearson Arrested for Murde r.
Pittsburgh, September 27. Quite a
sensation was occasioned in this city to
day in consequence of the arrest of Gen.
A. L. Pearson on the charge of Murder
growing out of the riots which occurred
here on July 21st and 22nd.
General Pearson had command of all
the troops brought here to suppress the
1 strike on the Pennsylvania railroad
against the double header trains. Among
these were the troops of General Brin
ton's division which arrived on Satur
day morning, the 21st of July.
In the afternoon of that day General
Brinton's command were ordered out to
the 28th street crossing to clear the
crowds away. The collision occurred,
during which some twenty citizens were
killed. Among the&e was Nicholas
Stoppel. Residing on Twenty-eighth
When the Philadelphia troops fired he
was sitting on his own doorstep, and
was pierced by a bullet, the wound caus
ing his death in a few hours. On the
1st of September a son of deceased made
information before Mayor M'Carthy,
charging General Pearson witli murder,
the information setting forth that the
command to fire had been given by him.
Shortly after the commitment General
Pearson's counsel applied to Judge
Kirkpatrick, of the criminal court, for a
writ of habeas corpus, which the court
formally granted and waB made returna
ble at twelve o'clock. At that hour Gen.
Pearson appeared In court with his
counsel, but owing .to the absence of
Stoppel and other witnesses for the com
monwealth the hearing- was adjourned
until three o'clock. At that hour the
court room wus crowded to suffocation
and the court announced its readiness to
The district attorney called the prose
cutor, -Stoppel, and one other witness,
and informed the court that these were
the only witnesses that could be found.
After taking the testimony of Stoppel,
who admitted that he had made the in
formation on the evidence of other par
ties, he being absent, the court fixed the
ball at $10,000 for another hearing on
Saturday, and the amouutbeliigspeedily
furnished General Pearson was released.
A Happy Couple. '
On Thursday evening last Trof. W.
N. Earhnrt was united in the bonds of
matrimony to Miss Julia Whltenlght,
daughter of D. E. Whltenlght, Esq., by
Rev. N. D. McComas. Prof. E.,belng of
a practical turn of mind, had a house
furnished and stocked from cellar to
garret. Ills bride removed her elegant
piano to the house, and after the cere
mony was over they took possession and
are now fixed ns comfortably as any one
and realizing their most sanguine wishes
for domestic contentment and happiness.
We join many friends in wishing them
long continued happiness and prosperi

fTJ'A deplorable state of affairs Is
said to exist at Sitka, since the with
drawal of the troops at that place. There
is now no protection either for life or
property. There is not a semblance of
law, either civil, military or naval, and
no power whatever to restrain the law
less elements. The white residents In
tend to abandon the country as soon ns
possible. Already the Indians have be
gun to plunder the public buildings, car
rying away doors and windows, tearing
down nnd burning for fuel the stockade
about the deserted garrison . There is no
authority to Interfere and prevent the
demolition of the place, and a massacre
of the Inhabitants is feared.
A Confession of a Thieving Official.
Cincinnati, September 27. Lewis
Myers, the county treasurer of Wapa
koneta, Ohio, who was arrested and
lodged in jail for being implicated in the
recent robbery of the county treasury,
has confessed that County Auditor J.
T. Smith was the person who was per
mitted to bind and gag Myers, and
afterwards rob the safe of what money
remained. It appears from the confes
son that money had been heretofore ab
stracted from the safe with Myers'
knowledge and probable consent.

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
Washington, D. C, Sept. 26th, 1877.
Yesterday morning about 11.25 A. 31., a
lire alarm was sounded, and in a very short
time it was known throughout the city that
tho Patent Office was on fire. Every effort
was made to extinguish tbo flames, but
without avail, aud in a few hours the model
room was swept more than half clean of its
contents by tho devouring fire. It broke .
out in the top or attio story, the floor of
which was the only one in the whole
immense building, but what was fire-proof,
and which soon burnt through into the
room whore were stored all the thousands
of models that have collected for the last
forty years. In 1830 the Patent Office was
burnt with all tho models which were then
in existence. How the fire originated yes
terday is not known, but there are various
theories concerning it. The general alarm
was sounded half au hour after it was dis
covered, and in a few minutes after, the
Georgetown engines came to the assistance
of the Capital fire force. Then Baltimore
was telegraphed and her engines arrived in
half an hour more. There was work for
them all to do, for, although the streets are
wido, the heat was so intense that the sur
rounding squares were only saved by a con
stant play of water upon them. The fire
was scarcely under control when a livery
stable in an adjoining square was discover,
ed to be burning, aud the attention of some
half a dozen more engines were turned
upon it, but when liar begins to burn it
isn't eory to stop it. The first wall of
brick, and supported on cither side by
other buildings alono was saved. The
horses were all gotten out, but the car
riages were lost.
The city was a scene of intense excite
ment which died away only at the ap
proach of nightfall. Several persons were
hurt, but as vet I have beard of no fatal
accidents. Tbis morning crowds are
thronging to see the ruins and in my next
letter I can give a much clearer account of
the whole matter than at present is possi
ble. ' ;
Tie near approach of Congress wares
the citizens of the Capital nnd District that
it Is high time to organize for the purpoao
of obtaining the legislation necessary for
the local interests of the city. Howerer
well disposed the members of Congress
may be toward the Dlstriot, it is remem
bered that there are so many new ones that
its needs are but little-understood by tho
mars, and the subject is too complicated
to admit of their becoming familiar
ized with all its points tintil its details are
explained to them by nn intelligent, well
informed and Influential committee of cit
izens. Therefore tiiore is necessity for par
ticularly nctive preliminaries, aud steps are
already boiug taken for the collection, and
arrangement of such information as Con
gress will need for proper legislation.
Senator Bogy, of Missouri, is dead and
politicians are already hard at work filling
his place in the Senate. Half a dozen at
least are eagerly baiting their hooks for the
ofilce, and much wire pulling will go on
beoauseof the vacant seat. Mr. Bogy was
a poor boy, and arrived at the age of man
hood in possession of no means aud of a
very limited education. But lie was am
bitious, persevering and industrious ; and
with these qualities one rarely fails of suc
cess. The following letter writton by him
when he started out iu life, shows that his
plans laid then wero adhered to nnd car
ried. out with tenacity.
St. Genevieve, January, 10th, 1833.
On this day I loft homo under charge of
Mr. William Shannon, an old friend of my
father, to go to Kaskaskla to road law iu
the oflice of Judge Pope. My education is
very limited, but with hard study I may
overcome it. I ant determined to try it,
and my intention is to return to my native
State to practice, if I can qualify myself,
and while doing so to work to become U.
S. Senator for my native State, and to work
for this till I am 60 years old. I will pray
God to give me the resolution to persevere
in this intention. I have communicated
this to my mother and irlven her this papor
to keep. So help me God.
