Fibrs for Three Months.?Conflagra tions continue to sweep away property from this country at a rate exceeding one million of dollars per month. The record for March shows no diminution from this sum. The New York Journal of Com merce has a table showing that during the past month there were 41 fires in the United States which destroyed property valued at $1,608,000. This does not in clude the looses by the recent fires in the woods at the South. The loss by tires during the last three months i> put down at $3,882,000. From the B?*ioo Adrwtiiwr, (Whif.) March 31 Ok th* Dkdhj? Turnpike, in Roxbu ry, just beyond Oak street, there is an ordinary hou?e in which a school is kept by seven ladies. Catholic 44 Sisters of Charity," members of the order of Notre Dame. They have twelve pupils, young ladies between the ages of ten and fit teen, all Americans by birth. These nineteen ladies form the whole house hold, with the exception of an Irishman who is employed about the premises as & servant. The house is located upon a thoroughfare much traveled ; it is not se eluded in any way from public gaze, the grounds are not surrounded by anv bar rier, nor does it have any of the charac teristics of a monastic institution. The ladies who reside there as teachers are highly cultivated and accomplished, and as much entitled to respect and courtesy as any in the State. Their pupils are likewise respectable, and there is not the least evidence that their attendance at school is forced, that they are subjected to any rigorous discipline, or obliged to undergo any sort of ill-treatment ?Such being the character of this estab lishment, the seventeen ladies residing I therein weie surprised on last Mjndav afternoon to see two omnibuses drive up to the doors, crowded with passengers, who alight and inquire for the " ladv su perior, ' and being met by the head of the establishment, the spokesman of the party informs her that the crowd is a Committee appointed by the Legislature to examine the house. No notification o1 the visit to be expected has been served upon the ladies, and they are obliged tr. take the statement of the members of the* I party on their own authority. We ha\> already seen that the Comnuttct actually I appointed by the Legislature consists oil but seven members. We are unable to state the number of the party professin< to act as this Committee on this occa-1 sion, but from the fact that two twelve-1 seat omnibuses, which appeared to be full, were required for their transport,! we can only estimate their number a? I twenty-four. There may have been a I few mere or less. Nineteen ladies, twelve of them less than fifteen years of a* e, could not, of courae, oppose any effretual obstacle to the entrance of twenty-four full grown I men into a common house, even had the I ladies known the rights guaranteed them I by the constitution and laws of Massa-1 chusetts, and had they been disposed tt>| maintain those rights by force. The! ' gentlemen"?we presume we must call I members of the Legislature by this tit!?-1 ? roamed over '.he whole house from at I tic to cellar. No chamber, no passage.! no closet, no cupboard escaped their vfg-1 ilant search No part of the house I enough sacred or enough protec ed bi I respect for the courtesies of ci7ilized lilel to be spared in the examination, 'i he. I ladies dresses hangng in their wardrobe., I wire tossed over. The party invaded! the chapel and showed their respect?as I Protestants, we presume?for the One! God whom all Christians worship by I talking loudly, with their hats on, whileI the ladies shrank in terror at the dese-1 cration of a spot which they believe hal | lowed. While in the chapel the ladies declined I holding any conversation with their per secutors; but in another part of the hou-el the principal expressed her perfect wil-1 lingness to answer any questions pro pounded by the "Committee." One of I the gentlemen pats her affectionately on the back with one hapd, turns over the rosary suspended round her neck I with the other, and asks her if she is ccn-1 tent with her situation, whether she can I leave when she pleases. The young la dies were ot course subjected to ques-1 tions even more rude ?whether there are I any boys boarding in the establishment ?what punishment they suffer for mis-1 demeanors, <Ssc. It is scarcely necessary I to describe such conversation in detail; the reader can readily imagine what tin scene must have been. The examining party, cf course had their own way, and when their searches and insults had been protracted to the extent of their pleas ure they took their leave. It is scarcely necessary to say that they "found?no matter what?it was not that they sought"?unless the object of their visit I was simply a "lark" at the expense ofl the State, in which case the object was I doubtless attained. There were no nurs I immured alive in contracted cells, nor any evidences of abuse of any sort call-1 ing fur legislative interference or even in-1 quiry. Now, we ask the reflecting men and women of Massachusetts?we even ap peal to the candor of the eighty thousand voters who put the present Administra tion in power?is such a record as the above tit to form a page in the history of the free and enlightened Common wealth of Massachusetts in the nineteenth century ? Make any allowance you please for exaggerations in the story which may have been caused by the natural fears of the terrified witnesses, Ad does the rec ord stand fair and clear? Is such the treatment that defenceless women ought to receive? Is such the behaviour of gentlemen in the Legislature? It is only paralleled by the stories that have come down of the insults and excesses of unlicensed soldiers in time ef war. Our legislators ought to have a more intimate practical acquaintance with the fundamental principles of our government. Ihe bill of rights, which is the first part of the constitution of Massachusetts, con tains this article: " Every subject has a right to be secure i from all unreasonable seizures of his per son, his houses, his papers, and all his | possession. All warran s, therefore, are' contrary to this right, if the cause or' foundation of them be not previously sup-! ported by oath or affirmation ; and if the i order, in the warrant to a civil officcr, to make search in suspected places, or to ? arrest one or more suspected persons, -.r to seize their property, be not aocoin-l panic-d with a special designation i the1 persons or object# 01 search, an est or seizure ; and no warrant ought to b? it sued but in cases, and with Um formali ties prescribed by the laws." It would be superfluous to point out how this article was riolated in every clause by the action we hare recorded. What was the warrant of this commit tee of seven, swelling its own number by its own act ? NotHng but a rote of the Legislature, or supported by oath or af firmation, and d-awn up with regard to ro formalities either prescrib?i by law or otherwise. In like manner the Constitution of the United Stales guarantees that ?' The ri^ht of the people to bo secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and aeu u! C8, shall not be violated : and no war rants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place tn be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." Who is safe from such unreasonable searches as that ol Monday last ? Vvat house is there in the State, occupied wholly by defenceless women, that may not be the scene for a frolic of ji party of rude men ? Let the constituents of ?uy >f the gentlemen composing this Com* mittee consider how tney would relish au invasion of their residences and a disturbance of the privacy of their fami lies hy such inquisitorial pariiu as thm. The revolution was fought in vain if the gieat American principles of private right and domestic security arc now to be set at nought. A Tbrrtblk Tragedy occurred at NVythtville, Virginia, on Saturday night, rcsu'tmg in the death of an old and re spected citizen,and the dangerous wouad mg of three others. It appears **>%t for some time past, a man named J. Austin Graham has l>een paying his attentions to the daughter of Mr. W. U. Spiiier# who is reported to be worth about $200, 000. Graham was unsaccessful in his suit, from the fact that the yonng lady was engaged to be married to a physician named Dr. Hamet. Graham, on *<v*annt of t^is state of things, has lieen very vio lent, and threatened to take the life of his rival the first opportunity that of fered. On Saturday aight, about 10 o'clock, tirahain entered the Wytheville Lintel, kept by Mr. Thomas J. Boyd, where air. Spiller was sitting, in company with Mr. C F. Trigg, teller of the Excuange Bank at Abingdon; Mr. C. Cor an attache of the hotel, and Mr. Terry. Graham drew a revolver and corom?n?d firinsr into tLd orowd, killing Mr. Spiller at the first tire. Mr. Cox is very badly wounded, *ut will, it is th-'Mght. recover. Messr* Terry and Trigg were wounded, but not seriously. The murderer fled immedi ately after the commission of the bloody deed, and has not since been heard from. The ctfair has caused the greatest indig nation.
