The ? soenes of oontusion began to manifest themsslres about the dawn of d'y, when a ge?jer?l packing and tying up ' took pltce, eavo the stores, which w^re n'c-'eary for the Q preparing of the morning meal.

Thk Latk Rior in Portland, Mb.?The causes which led to the late riot in Portland, Me., ar? itated la the eastern paper* a* follow* : ?Mr.Oeo. R. Davit, a wealthy and reapectable citizen of Portland, had educated and given a home to a young girl, a niece, who ha* the mtsfortuno to call the keeper of a notoriou* home of ill fame, In New York, her mother. Tha young lady 1* seventeen yearn of t<ge of great personal beauty, and her uncle ha* neglected nothing In properly cultivating her moral and intolieotual faculties The mother uas ?c various times, witnm a lew mourns, n;mpMU 10 entiee the youig lady from the house of bar uncle, bat without success. Oa Monday U4th ult., Mr? Tuttte, the mothir of the girl, called upon bar daughter, and induced her to ent*r a c?rri?i?? with her, ostensibly for the purpose of visiting Maco. slnse which neither mothat nor dau'htsr lies bs*n beard from. The friend* of the girl accused Mr. Davis, who had long been her protector, of having aooepted a bribe fron the mother, and alio, in connection with Constable DanleUon, of baring been accessory to the foreibte abduction of tba girl. Ob Thursday night a mob oolleoted simultaneously around the houses of Mr Davis in Brown street, and of Mr. Danielson. They coon proceeded to aota of violence, and completely sacked both bo usee, destroying tba furniture, window sashes, blinds, and everything moveable. The inhabitants bad previously fled. Tba mob having gratified their revengefol feelings, quietly dispersed. The Mayor of Portland appointed two gentlemen, Jossph Adams and Royal Williams, Kiqs., to proofed to Nuw York and inquire into the facts in relation to the supposed abiuotion. Mr. Dsvis acoompanied them. On the night oi the riot a portion of tba rioters prnoaeded at a late hour to the house of R. A L. Cod* man, Esq ., and commenced throwing stonea at the windows, one of which paneed through a pane, and indicted a s?vere wound on the head of Mr. Codman's daughter. It is stated that the only oonneotlon whloh Mr. C. had with this supposed abduetion was that of having boen professionally consulted by soma of tba parties. The two gentlemen appointed by tba Mayor of Portland to visit New York, reaohed that olty on Sunday last, with the guardian of the abdaoted girl, who found out her whereabouts and conveyed bar baok again to Portland. Dkstri ctiv* Conflagaration in Philadilpiiia.?About 12 oVlnrk on Saturday nisrht a fira was discovered In the carpenter shop back of BonaaU * (1 Ninth afreets, occupied by Joseph Connelly. but owned by R. Lovutt, and in a abort tin* the building was enveloped in Slmu. An adjoining abed to the Matwar.1 wu involved in the conflsgrntlon, which also apread to tbe west, driven by the wind, and caught the adjaoent carpenter shop of Joseph Lovett. Three two etory brick dwellings fronting on BonaaU street, owned by R Lovett, and two similar dwellings, tbe property of bia brother, also cangbt fire, and but for tbe exertions of the fireman would bare been totally destroyed. Tha roofs of these honsea and tbe wood work of tbe beek buildings were almost entirely destroyed. Tba families inhabiting them are severe sufferers from the damage to their furniture, the most of whieb was oooaalonad by the violence of those who entered the boaass for the purpose of saving the property they contained. A lady from one of these houses lost a gold watoh during tbe excitement of tha ocoasion. A row of five three stery bricks, fronting on Oovett'a eourt, running north from Bonsall street, belonging to Joseph Govett, were alnsoot destroyed, scaroely a vestige of tba wood work remaining. Tbe familiea in these lost nearly every thing they peasesssd. The back buildings of six nouses fronting en Lombard street, oooupl>d by John McArthnr, Joseph SUaban and Mr. Haokatt, were all more or less damaged. The bith houses attached to the above dwellings all caught tire. One or two of tbe dwellings fronting on Ninth atreet, ware also alightly seorohed. The building In whloh the fire commenoed was inanred. bat Joseph Connelly, the tenant, had alarge amount of lumber and finished work on hand. The wood work for a large dwelling on Chestnut street, and three other houses that be had taken a oontraot for, was all destroyed, amounting In all to about $J,600?not Insured. Six workmen employod by him lost their tools, amounting to about $300. The shop of Joseph Oovett did not oentain a large amount of work, and the building was not covered by insurance. The dwellings on Govett's oourt and en Bon anil street were all covered by lnsuranoe, suffloient to repair the damage reoeived.?PKilad. Ledgtr, 1st init.
