?*i'> ot UK Otmm on tho Mate of PartlN. Phii-adblpuia, June 17, 1855. To Jakob Gordon Bennett, Eb<j., Editor Herald. DbarSib?You uted to bsva a correspondent who waa a ocoain cf nuue. 1 dont kno* what tbe Old Nick baa bcoome of him, unless his unfortunate eaaneotion ?uk Frank Pieroo has used him up, which is moia tiaa likely. However, that la neither hero nor there, as the thimble rigger onoe -3aid. To pieeasd: 1 hare been in this toon near on to tea days. I ome here to buy dry gcods for a store I happen to oon at Duck River, in Arkaosas. I am Yaakee born, bnt got my principal growth out yon der. 1 buy ay dry goods here, because Now York baa got to be such a rowdy sort of a place, eternal ly tn a woes, that I don't like it. Hire I am at hone, and upon o dinary oocasioua I comprehend the roper; bnt this time I was quite put ont of my set honing. I chanced to ariive while the Know Mot'ing chaps were holding their grind national pew-wow, and sticking it cn thick that" Americana shall tule America." 1 wonler what the Canadians, and Nova Ecotians, and Cubans, and Mexicans say te that; for, accord log to my way of thinking, they are aa much Americans as we "United States-iana,1' or, to #peak in detail, PenneyIvaalun, V rginUne, Carolinians, Missouri ice, Tezlana, and all the other ?ta'A-ians. A bert Pike, of my State, waa one of the dele gates to their Council; and thmgh 1 usually hang ? ont at the Franklin H use, yet this trip, to oblige Pika, 1 went to the Guard Honee, where uoat of tue Know Nothings pot np, and where the big Ameri can chiefs bad suites of rooms. The Girard House waa such a monstrous, immense ooncirn, that 1 went to work to ft d out who had capital enough to invest in inch a pile, end I fraud ont that it waa txuetecd property, in the name of a Mr. Kd wards, a good Roman Catholic, Who holds for the Convent a# lfcnke, called the Benedictines, thirty or forty fel lows, wbu fatten in Philadelphia. Stye I to Pike, when I found this out, " Old hose, what the dickens is In yon ehapa, that are n?11 on foreigners and Soman Catholios, to spend your money on your worst enemies ?" " Jo. Green," said he, " always take the ball by the be> us." - in this case," said I," it's a papal bull." " Good," said Albert; '? if yon was Irish, it would bo aa Irish bull." Neither spoke after that, and I oared. Mr. B., I flatter myself tiat I am "raythot" American in my sentiments and feelings, and my patriotism got the better of my trading propensi ties, se I cut dry goeda for the time, and rent at palhk s. Of coarse I was an cutaider, but my friend Wb. Pike introduced me to moat of the big doga belonging to the Supreme National Council, and I was enabled to pick up the tit-bits of conversation that ccourred around the mansion of the Benedlc* Una mc nks. One chap used to make it a point to tell me every morning after breakfast, what waa dona the day before. At firat It was all about platforms. "Nothidg will be done until we get tbe platform," said ever)body around. "Whenyou get a p at form, what are you giing to de next?" 1 asked. "Oh, tben we wiii meet again and uomi We a eonple cf men to stand n?s R." "Have yen fixed up >n msu ?" "Oh, yes," said a d-legate; " we have pretty to id wbo will be the man, bat we want to a?mi' : on tbe square. George Law, of New hoik nil be tbe cal .date for the Presidency of the American patty." This was the talk ad about among the delegates; but one morning I happened fcto Jores's hotel, acd the delegates were talking about George Law, and what a smart chap he was, short old man, with a weaaeily face ???? *'?? ??*, broke in: No sir-roe, tl^e little white hit "George Isaw wont be the man. shaver will suppirt hiui. My paper, sir, is tl earner u-an _r iriil oppose ?serge 1-aw. He >a a dangerous mi?. He is an aalettercd mechanic. He cant write his rwa name ?makea die Catholic cross to hia checks. He is oo statesman. He is a dead cock in the pit. I tell you, gentle men, Gtorge Law shall never receive my anpport." Aid white jet straightened up twoiuuhee, Md marched cut of ihe rdim. flit d'.pa:fore was ??o signal for ahonts of langhter. "What a king tail cur pussy eat has gj;!" says OWf. "Who the devil is the little maanikin?" Mi J an Vbb I*AO. "Why, don't you know? ' asked another. ' Why, fast is Ute Hon.

"But what the Old Harry makes him so especially down on Mr. Lav? The little animal must know that two-thirds of tne Council are favorable to Law." "Ah! c. nfean n." raid a former speaker," there is u wheel within a wheel. Poor Ellis has good rea son to dietike George Law. When the American Ye parian was Charge at Caraccas, ha did a little easiness on his own hook, and got a contract with YeaezmHa to navigate the Orinoco with steam. Be came hack to the HUtee with .Ms magnificent eontract; but being without cash or credit to full IBs *5? contract, be aomied to G.o.ge Law; and now, gentlemen, get ouVyou IWoae^ haudk J ohiefssnu prepare to w<>.ep, for I am going to reveal ?be pecret why Mr. EUta regards M*.

Live Oik tteorge refused to sign h s name to an order for moisy or an order to build uteamimta for the Honcable Veapasien, and when toe said V. load to ed Mr. Law with a dozen protracted, be'etching twteiviewe, and wrote aoout twenty explanatory begging letters, be b came such a nuisinoe that our Live Oak friend bad, in self defence, to tell the co lored gentleman thai atbencs to hie front door to always toil Mr. Eiiia when he called, that he, George, h?c too n.any great iatei eats in North America to attend to ami bad n> time to wai', upon Mr. Ellis ot bib appiioatku for aid iu behalf or Catholic, be night d ?Vwt'i America, or steamboats on the Orino co.

When this explanation woe given, fit .?*&' urns cf laughter that came from the throats or stK-nt twenty delegates and a few outside listeners #0116 have )?*< u heard at FAlrmount. By tie way, 1 wish you would publish something about George Law, that I can take it homo with me to Ananas*. 1 atu b amed If I eiat going In for bin, ?it.i both paws. My cranio B?m Green, "the man wot nominated Frank Pierce,'' had some high fa k op n polit.oal saujecie in your HiRALD, and I d .n't srie why yon shouldn't give another member of the family a show. If you publish this do ument I mav patron lie yon again. Who knows? I attended a lit tle quiet supper party last Saturday evening, bf-sr the Coanctl adjourned. There were present about sixteen good fellows, mostly Southerners, ex sept *.wo?myself ani a Virginia friend. Theoon vt n>*ti<ra tannd npon the platform. "Staff," said a Oeorafa delegate; "platforms are all very well In tbiir way, hot give me the men. If Live Oak Gsctgs had be?n simply nominated by this Council, and s tesolve pasoed recommending all the oounoOe and members ?o off e>at? and go to work and win it woaifibave bsen better than fifty thousand plat turns." "Way didn't you make the nomination, then?" said I. "Because we wan'tsent here for that purpose; and Veitre, tech HUre sends ssven del' gates. It would as* be fair. The convention thai nominates mast have He delegates from each Congressional district fa the Colon. In this Council Law would have been nominated en the first ballot. There was n> other mart had a show against hiin." "Colonel, how will Law itnnd in the Council that meet* next February?" "WmI, jut about twentf per tent stronger; amd ril erpif.ii). The Bowth will jo for Ulm to a ram. New York, his own Htste, is as true to fam se MeeL Bo ie Pennsylvania, the Bute that find oomlrated her giant neighbor's son. Instead of seven delegates, as in trie late Council. New Tsek will send thir-y six Law delegatee, and Penn sylvania will send twentv three, instead of seven; mad ?f there Is ai ybody in this small party, or abjt where else, that wee'd l'k* to make a 'boustr.d on the ebsnre that George Law won't be tbe candidate of the American party for the Presidency, I am the fadivtdaal that oan accommodate him." "Geat'e, I have a proposition to make " said a deiegat*. frtm Virginia. "I propose that every man errand tfa rapper table shall tell something about George luw- bad, good, or indiffrrent. He must fall something. ?r pay for a handle of eerire, u wo are fetting short of that arttofa." "Agrtee,'" "egreeo,', "agreed," came from aU smarter*. ?' I move that the proposer oemmenee," said soother. "I agree," said the Virginia gentleman, "sad here gnet: T bare heard that he la a iwerwlMd old trraBt, wor?f than old Jactson was, and I believe lu That's why he'll gel my vote. I dau'i want any >o we nimby-pamby mi bao PreeiJenU.

"Yen most be a Jiimd to newso-i/era," remarked Mr. F. "I em so. I want a President that will givs news pa; tr prcprirtors a c iance of making a tortnii in exnse. That's the talk" Here an otd delegare from North Carolina got in bit ear. " W at 1 am going to tail, gmtViedaen, will rather oendrm the idea of my Virginia trisnl. It ia raid that tbe fart tr of George Lav bad great tjouh'e with hia aon. He ser;t h m to a school, and vear after year be would whip all tbe other boys; in fact, he whipped toree sue easive teachers who bad toe fault oi urjustiv whippirg small boys, and old Mr. La* bad tlnaUy to take him away from school. George waa too dutiful to whip the old man, and.ro lie ranaway from home. On one oc rarkn, however, a boy somewhat bigger and older than Gerrgs, gave bin a good thrashing. Bald a sympathising school fellow friend of George's: ' What art yon going to do abont it?' ' Do,' said the oalm defeated. ' Do! Whit am I going ?? do? Just you wait until I get another year's growth, and than yon'il see w'oai I'll do? then I'll fetch him.' Btire enough, the next winter Georg* repaid tte tbr&shiog, with latere si." " Cot Aims my idea. Thank yon," said the Vir ginian. I only hope w' en he reac ie? the Presidon tial chair that he' will retain all bh early predilec tions." But I can't write yon all that was said Or told. We adjonrxed at 12 o'clock, and I detjr m'ced to give you the b:.neflt of a few lines; an 11> morrsw I go to wo. k onyiog dry gious. If any thing more tarns np 111 write yon. Yonr friend, Jo. Gukbn, of Dock Creek, State of Arkansas. Interesting from Texas. orR kbownbvii.ik corbbsi'Ondenck. Bhownstillk, Texes, Jane 5,1855.

He is a wldier by profes sion, and notel tor his eamity to Santa Anna as a man and a ruler. He immediately put himself en route for Saitillo, at toe head of tour hundred men, and that "place has daubiless by this time fal.cn into 11 eir bancs. The whole of Coabuila is reprewated as being in open rebellion, and not even government sycophants believe that the tyrant will subdue the movement now fairly initiated against hint.

GENTMontN?I shall be constrained by official engage menu to deny myself the pleasure of participating in the proposod celebration at Fredariokabnrg, on the ldth Inst, but I beg to present my hearty congratulations upon the fa'e signal triumph of sound prineiplaa and manly sentiments in tha Old Dominion I're eminently prominent as the sons of Virginia hare been, from tha commencement of the Revolution, >or their oold adro cscy of the nauea of freedom?for their consistent aad patriotic devotion to the only principles upon wbieh a govers ment constituted like ours can be sustained, it may well be doubted whether they have ever achieved for themselves mora distinguished honor than in the late aleation, or have ever rendered a higher service to this Union. If political heresies and religious intolerance could have shaken and o&rried tha stronghold of that party, upon the faithfulness, patriotism, Intelligence and courage of which tfce country has bean obliged mainly to rely in every period of serious danger, whether arising from foreign armB or domestic distentions, it would have bten the occasion, if not of discouragement, yet oi profound regret and sorrow, to those who revere the constitution under which, at a nation, we have attained such amazing advancement, and have realised socially results so unixempled In the history of thebumvn r> ?. The proud elevation on which the Crmmonweilt>> of Virginia now stands, ia freely recognised and destrvj .?y honored from one extremity of the Union to the other. With my best wishes for a joyous gathering, worthy of such a State and such a triumph, you will please to ac cept my cordial thanks for your kind iavi'ttioa FRiNKI.lN PIERCE.

After the lapse of more than half a century, ehe remains faithful and true in the advocacy of the great principles of civil and religious freedom of which she waa then the ex ponent. As she then led the way in the overthrow of the Aden law, so now she repels a more formidable assault upon humaui ty and justice Bbe has rolled back the tide of error and fanaticism, and augurs from her victory results auspi cious to the perpetuation of onr free and happy govern ratnt. The great conservative republican party, under the inspiration of her example, will heal their Olaoou teats, end with the principle of 1798-3 inscribed un mistakably on their banners, will march to renewed triumphs So uuy it ba for the save of a Union which bestows incalculable bene 11; on all who live under it.

It is raid that Ibis convention baa Dominated tbe lion Geo. D. Bbortridgs, of Shelby county, for Governor. Tbe Mail ssys:? Judge bhortiidge ia, and baa always been, a democrat, aa was biafatbtr (Uon. tli ibortridge) bsfore him. Hi ia probably forty one or forty-two yoara of age, and ha? re8ided io tbe state from early boyhood In central and western Alabama bia popularity ia very great In the east be ia comparatively unknown. He is said to be a very pleasant and effective speaker. With industry ha would be able to travel over a greater portion of the State before the election?at least over tboae parte ia which be ia least known. We believe that if he wer* nominated he would do this; and that being the oase, we ahon'ri have very strong hopes of his aaceesa. Hfa position upon the questions likely to b# involved in the campalfn Is Ihus mOjftlvd in (be ifiiii;? or the views of Judge Short We have not known ante ridge, on matters of State policy, bat were inolieed to set him down as a very stroeg advocate of Stato aid. From the moat reliable documents, however, we asosr tain that there are very few whe eon be called 8tate aid men. it all, who are so cautious aa he. He presents? we think we may be permitted to say?this idea, with much force: that whatever system may be inaugurated, it ahentd be eommanced on a very restricted plan, and only very gradually enlarged as It proves safe and silica cious. He seems to favor with considerable emohasls of prelerence, the loaning of whatever cash can be spared from the treaaniy, at any time, to the endorsement of bonds. On the subject of temp* rnnoe, it may be re marked that Jadee Hhortridgo is a decided temperance man; and yet ho is opposed to the introduction of that issue into the canvass We suppose ha thinks as mo?t do?that in the prercnt state of public sentiment, all attempts In that cirectiou must prove abortive. Lit? Judge Shortridge, we believe that no preposition of so grave a character should be introduced as a mere inci dent of a canvass; whenever it ia made at all. it should bo as the great question of that day and contest. But for one we are eatlsflod that we have all heard the last, nearly, of prohibitory ichemea, for many a day. Tners can be in Alabama, at least at the preoent time, nothing practical ia such an issue. NSW POLITICAL ORGiKIZATION IN MAflSAOHCdEPTd. Ihe following is going the rsnnda of the pspera. We do not know its origin, or whether it ia entuled to any belief:? A grand fusion convention will be called at Spring field, Mass., in July, when the Koow Nothing* will de clare for an open campaign, and for a generous union with tbe anti-slavery men of atf parties. 8nch liberal men as Henry Wilson. Anson Burlingame, John W. Fo? fer, N. P Banks, Jr., and Governor Gardner, who are the leaders of the present dominant party ia Massachu setts, will extinguish the "dark lantern." and, opening wide t) eir arms, invite all to join them in a campaign on truly nationkl principles?on the principles and pUt >r the ft ~ form of Ihe fathersof the republic. Among those woo will attend this convention, who hare not heretofore acted with the Know Nothings, may be rasotiooelex Governor BouTwell. Hen Charles Sumner. Samuel Bowles, editcr of the f pringfield Itrpvbiican; Mr. Goodwin, editor of the Lowell Courier; Hon Charles R. Traio, District Attorney (Middlesex district); Hon. Henry L. Dtwe*, d'tto of Berkshire district: Hon Rodney French, of New Pwdford; R. H. Dana, Jr., Kan.; Emory Atdrich, F-sq, of Worcester, President of ths Know Somethings, and pro bablv Hon. Julius Rockwell, of P'tt?fl*ld; urn. Ensign H Kellogg, of do ; Gen. B F. Butler, of Lowell, ami other prominent men. MldCKLLANEOUS. Mr Lutber J. Glenn decline* to allow his name to go before the Democratic Congressional Convention in tie Fourth district of Goorgle, and in his letter states, that although he disapproves of the principles of the Know Nothings, ho does not feel himself callsd upon to ce nouore the new organisation as a "hand of midnight cow spiiators," "allies of abolitionists and free soilers, " Ac, Abuse and denunciation, ho says, are not the mesas with which to convince men of "the error of their way," and to tn.hience them to retrace their steps. Msay, soys Mr. Glenn, who, I have every reason to believe, are members of the Uidsr, ere as "good Southern men anl true " as warmly devoted to the beet interest of tho South, as ran be found in aoy other political party, and t shall come, will be for * who, when the day of conflict i among the foremost In the tluokeet of the light. When the new* of the election of Jamee Bell to the United State* Peuate reached Meredith, N. H., onThnra day evening, tbe cltisene tuned out en hum**, without regard to party, and preceded by a brace hand, marched to his residence end tendered their congratulations.

Before starting, however, things took n change, and the betting waa decidedly in favor of Lady Franklin at a hundred to aaventy, the knowing enea having apparently juit at that moment made some valuable dimovery.

[From the St. 1 ouls New* Jdd? 16.] The depredations of the "Blaet Boys" in Clay county, Indiana, bare been carried to Ruch a degree of atrocity that tcldirra are found necessary to put a atop to them and quell the banditti proceedings of the no amp# who loaiRt en do*troy tng the rei-ervolr at Terra Haute. Birch Creek, in t lay county, is the seat of war, and the theatre of the exploits of the "Black Boys," or "Regulators " We mentioned some time ago that they had torn open, frequently, the reservoir at that plaoe, built to supply the cane) with watei, and bad driven off the wortmsn employ ed to repair the damage tbey had done. The lest time they tore open the reservoir, they posted up bill# oitifyirg .he wrrSmen tbat If tbey attempted to repair the breach, it would be at the peril of their lives, an : stationed a guard at the place to keep intruders olf Tbey even went so far as to offer a reward of Ave hun dred dollars for tha head of Gov Wright, who had in sued a proclamation warning them to desist from their outrages. Governor Wright finally called for volunteers to aid in putt'ng down the rebellion and capturing the ruffians. Fvsnsville, most interested In th# basinets of the canal, bss spiritedly responded to the call, and last Wednesday raired a ecmpany of about sixty volunteers, armed to the teeth, and well equipped, and sent them off to the scene of war. Flva hundred dollars was also raised to defray the expenses of the expedition. At the date of the latest bulletin fn ra the scene of hostilities, the mi litia bad arrived safely on the ground, and were busy moulding bullets, preparatory to a fight, whUh was ex pee ted to eome off In a few days. The "Week Boya" bad not made their appearance In force, and as they al ways disguise themselves before exnmittiog their de predations, there is a difficulty in ioentifylng and ap preheodUg them. They do not seem dt'posed to piss the chances of an open field battle with the militia, but prefer to wait till the latter have become ttrod and rose borne, wBtn they will sally forth from their hiding place*, and renew their deviltries. The Cincinnati Commercial of Mis 20th Inst, says:? We loans that the trustors of the Wabash and Erie Canal have compromised with the Clay eoantr Regule tor*. Th* true teas have agreed to cut down the timber la th* reservoir to the water's edge, and, when the water can be spared, to lot it out. and remove all the timber, the Regulator* promising, in return, not to moddl* with any of the works of th* sanal. OuTRAOia upon Females.?The Troy Timet says that it is estimated that the number or criminal outragts ecmmitted open females ia the United States daring the past year have been 3,300.

It wD bs recollected that oa the 14th iasUat a Are teeh place at Ne. 10 Maiden lane, causing the death of M> Jeanneret, aad destroying a large amount of pro perty. The followiag ie the evidence :? Patrick Bolloway testified that he kept the key of the ?tore, and that on the mornjg of the Ore he opened the ?tore a few minntee before 1 o'clock; that he locked the front doer on the tosids, opened the back wjadews, and then swept oat the store, after which he itarted to go up ataire to open the windows on the eeoond door, and when near the top of the first ataire he heard a hiding round, stopped iaataetiy, went down two steps, and ?teoped to ??? where the noise came from; he then saw the colored wbeeti on the upper shelves on Are; ho had to go past theat to get to the front door, and before ha reached the street, one of the wheels exploded just as he unlocked the door; there was great confusion amongst the fireworks behind hies; be did not look back, bet loft the store door partly open, called oat tiro, and at th it moment she ire works Mew out the front windows; I put the colored wheels up en the upper shelf by order of Mr. Innkta, who told mo to bo careful with them, as they might explore if roughly handled, I have been in Dunkia & Kobbinn' employ over four years. Jehn D, Bobbins testified that he hed delt in fireworks fer upwards of coven yean, aad never had an accident before; from what the porter eaye about where he first raw the fire, I am inclined to believe it was caused from ' pontsneone combustion; oolored fireworks 1 am inform, ed are liable to spontaneous combustion, when im properly imai'e. James Cameron testified that he ie a salesman of the firm of Dunk In & Roob.na, as a general thing could toll .be different maau'aetnie ef the firework* by their ap pearance; IV rick HaJloway hae described to me the spot where he first discovered the fire; I know ths character of tbe fireworks deposited on the shelf, where she porter says he first saw the fire; they were pot and lause wbea'a. ci> orrd fire; they were from the manufactory af J. W Uadfieid, of Williamsnurg; tbrre were upwards of three <!nz?'d of them; I have heard that colored fireworks sis liable to spontaneous combustion when improperly mane. 1 r? oU.ct about a fire taking place in the store of Mr Joseph B. Purdy, No 34 Maiden tans, about 2 years age; 1 cannot say how it originated; I was Informed by Mr. Purdy tbat it originated amongst some fireworks msnufactured by Mr Haofield: in reference to the origin oi the fire in our store, 1 should say it was caused by spontaneous oombustion of fireworks, and frour wIito the fire ie said to have or gioa'ed, I should say it first exhibited itself amongst some pot and lance wheels or tbe manufacture of J. W. Hadfield. Thomas Dunk in testified that on Saturday, 9tbJun<, be received into tbe store a tot of colored pot wheels from the facterr of J. W. Hadfiald, of Williamsburg; I th'nk there were three or four dozen of wheels; I direct ed our porter to put them up on the shelves next to the ciling; eererdlng to the statement made by the porter it was one or more of these wheels that hs first dis covered on fire; I am of the opinion that the colore! wheels in question were improperly made, and took fire by spontaneous combustion; 1 am willing to sign an agreement to sell fireworks by blank sample, and co operate with all other dealers to prevent, if possible, accidents of tbe like cnaracter hereafter. Joseph ti Edge, testified?I am of the firm of Joieph k leans Eden. Jr., Pyrotechnists; we keep our manufac tory in Jersey City; we had a large quantity ef fireworks in the store of Dunsin At Bobbins, who act as our agents; in reference to tbe character of the fire works first die eove ed on fire, I am informed by Mr. Cameron they were designated pot and lance wheels, colore! fires; as tar as my experience gees, colored fires are liable to take fire at certain temperatures of tho atmosphere, unless properly prepared; pnrpls fires we don't use at ail in our msnntactore; we consider it very dangerous; it Ie a combination of su'pbur of copper, sulphur, chloride of potash, end some carbon; 1 do not consider any of the nt'er fires dangerous if properly prepared. Joreph E Purdy testified, tbat on the 16th day Jane, 1863. a fire took place In bis store, on the sejoud floor; t was standing at tbe Trent part of the third floor about 6 o'clock P M , when I heard a noise; on mrntng around I saw a colored wheel on fire; It was hanging up by the sky-light; I ran to tbe wheel and pulled it down an-1 threw It in one corner of tbe room; I trisd to put it out by stamping upon it; soon after it exploded,setting fire to its other fireworks; I then made my escape; the porter got oat of tbe window and fell to the earth, caus ing a compound fracture of the sknll, which caused his death; the following year I sold by bliok simple, but this year, from the strong competition, I have found It necessary, .to compete with other dealers, to keep a stock of fireworks in my stire; tbe colored pot wheel that 1 discovered first on die was of the manufacture of J. W. Hadfi'ld of Williamsburg; I had none of that kind ef fireworks of any utber manufacture in my ettre; the fire in my premises, in my opinion, was caus ed by spontaneous combustion taking place in the color ed pot wheel; this present year I wrote to Mr. HvlfieM, that if he would give me e written certificate that nls fireworks were property made, and not ltable to spon taneous combust-on, I would purchase of him again; ho sent me word he had more work an 1 orders on band than be could supply. John W. Hadfield testified?I am a pyrotechnist; I here msnufa:tured all kincs of fireworks for twenty fight years pait; I have sold fireworks to Messrs Dunkln & Robbing, bo. 10 Maiden lane; my expedience in refer ence to the class of fireworks liable to spontaneous oom bustion is in colored works; blue is the most liable to take fire; also the purple; they are both abont the same thing, made of the ?ame ingredients; gteeu will also ex plode, so I am told; I never have seen any instance or It. hot I have no reason to doubt it, from those who in formed me; I never knew red color to explode, nor yel low; I never put anything ioto pot wheels but relor green, but red mostly; there are toB't!m? U?w? -jo-m title* of sulphnrie acid In tbe sulphur we purchase, which is very dangerous if used for oolored firework*, without washing; we frequently dUcari articles pur chmrvtt from chemists; moat of our ohemioaia are of Freneh importation; some we purchase m Philadelphia, vetly for making giten and red firo; H is nitrate of larysoa; the hlue and purple fires are made from a pre paration of copper; In* different states of the atmos phere must be carefully regarded; in damp, warm, sultry weather we keep our shops closed; this kind of weather ie more likely to produce spontaneous combustion of colored works when not properly made; I have a room expressly set apart lor the manufacture of colored fires, which my ton and myself attend to entirely; every arti cle is propei ly tested before being brought into tbis room; about the 6th June I made twelve dozen of pot and lesce wheels, of wbich Dunkin b Robblni had be tween three and four dozen, end Mr. Martin Bennett, SK Front street, tho balance; since the fire I have seen eoase of there some wheels hanging up iu Mr. Bennett's ?tote; I think there ought to he more care used by the dealers; I th nk they expose too many fireworks at one time in their stores: if one work becomes ignited by any accident, all those exposed must of coarse be set on fire: I rbould tb'nk, as a general thing, the dsalsre could sell by blank sample; it is very dangerous to have so many fireworks exposed or stored in a city, surround ed ss they must be by valuable property, and jeopardiz ing th* lives of so many people. It will be seen by tbe evidence in this esse that be yond a doubt great danger may at all times be antici pated from tbe storage of Urge quantities of fireworks. During tbe last two years two men have !>een killed, within a block of each other, by spontaneous cembos tion, and a Urge amount of property destroyed in e? ih case. It must be admitted that If the same practice is continued without applying a remedy, another year and we may have to record the destruction of a d 'Z'-n I ves. The spontaneous explcs.on of fireworks becomes mete'y a matter of time, borne dealers have been in business for ten or fifteen years without aecident; nevoithnesa, at any moment they tie liable to just such disastrous eirenmstsDces. Tbe Fire Marshal will prvpire all the necsMiry evi dence for the Mayor, in order to pres'nt tbe matter in a proper form before the Common Council at their next ueetixg. He also takes pleasure in announcing to the public that tbe merchautf have expresssd their willingness t* oo operate with him for the purpose of establishing a law for the better protection of life and proj<erty in the saWof fireworks.

Jobn J Lagrave?Saw this petition signed; the name* are those of responsible parties, able to build the road; be was asked to sign it, but declined; it was Intended, if these parties rot the grant, that he was to have a share in it; they told hiss, it they got it, others ro'ght come in; and his idea was, that if the grant was to be made to the injury of his property on Greenwich street, be might as well have ths benefit of the grant as any one else; he oppoeed this road because be believed it would injure his property; would reduee the rent of his property at least 91,000 a year; was satisfied wRh tbe things there well enougbt wtbout a railroad; but if there must be one, he wanted to " go in" for it; nothing occurred in making this offer to induce him to believe that the parties making it did not intend to build tbe road, if thsy get tbe grant; thinks the grant, at three cents fare, and controlled by as few individuals, would be valuable and prefitable; knows that plaintiffs and others opposed to this road prostate* a petition to Ihe Bo era of Assistant Aldermen before ths grant was made, asking to be heard in opposition to it; it was referred to tbe Committee on Streets; ths Chair man promised them a bear ng, but did not give them any. Anthony S. Hope, grocer, 276 Greenwich street, testi fied as to tne responsibility of tbs parties who petitioned for this grant at thiee cents fars. Ths Court here adjourned. The trial will probably last a couple of days more. Mayor's Office. PASSING WOUTHLMB MOMBY.
