DESTRUCTIVE
FIRE    IN
MAINE.
PORTLAND,
THE EUROPEAN WAR.
THE   FIRST   BLOW   STRUCK.
Portland, Me., July 5.—A firo occurred
resterday in J. B. Brown & Sou's sugar-house,
Commercial street, destroying a mile and a
lialf long by a quarter of a mile wide. Hall
of thc city ii destroyed and that half includes
nearly all tho business portion. All the
banks, newspaper offices, jewelry and wholesale dry goods stores, several churches, telegraph offices, and a majority of tho business
houses are destroyed. Many buildings, perhaps 50, wcre blown up to check thc flames,
but the inhabitants could scarcely do more
than flee with their families to the upper part
of the city, saving such goods as they could
carry. The Custom House, being fire-proof,
escaped, though it was greatly damaged. The
splendid city and county buildings in Congress
street, being nearly lire-proof, were considered safe and wore filled full of furniture
by neighboring residents. It was swept away
with all its content!. The fire is still raging
below Cumberland street, ranging back to
westward, the wind having changed. Capt.
Harry Innas has telegraphed for 1,500 tents
to accommodate homeless families.
Generous contributions nnd relief are ar
riving for sufferers of the late fire. Already
the work of rebuilding has begun. Total
loss is.estimated at ten or twelve million dollars, and will involve some insurance companies in ruin. The whole passage of the
(ire through was made in less than twelve
hours. It was only stopped at the pastures.
The majority of fire-proof buildings were
hardly safer than the wooden ones. The
Custom House building, in which arc Post
Office, U. S. Stores, built by the Government,
and thought to be entirely fire-proof, with
nothing inflammable in them except furniture
and contents, with quite open space in front
and open streets on two sides, is much damaged.
The upper part is ruined inside, and masses ot
stone work arc falling from outside. In some
cases wooden buildings were saved while
brick buildings on each side were destroyed.
On the east corner of Myrtle and Cumberland
streets a wooden building was saved, while
every brick building on tho square was destroyed. Heretofore wc have considered the
city particularly safe from conflagrations, our
fire department is in excellent order, and the
rapidity with which dangerous fires have been
subdued seems sometimes marvellous. All
old dangerous buildings are swept out clear.
The city will be rebuilt with the greatest attention to future security. Our shade trees
were a protection on the outskirts, and to
them some houses entirely owe their protection. Tho Atheneum Library was destroyed;
the City Building and Court House this morning occasioned alarm.
ANNEXATION OF THE PROVINCES.
The bill introduced into Congress to establish conditions for the admission of the British North American Provinces into the Union
aroused an angry feeling in government circles in Canada. The bill is looked upon as a
bid to the Provinces to throw off their allegiance to Great Britain, and join what is
termed the political confusion of the United
States. The popular feeling is against any
such step.   	
SPAIN.
FRENCH CREEK.
The Italian army crossed the Mincio on the
morning of June 2'2d, near Gaeta, and advanced slowly towards.the river Bella without
meeting resistance. At two o'clock the same
day an Austrian brigade reached the outlying
forts of Verona without loss, having been
pushed back by a greatly superior force of
Italian cavalry. The Italians, advancing on
both sides of Mincio towards Pescheira, were
repulsed by a short cannonade from the outer
fort of that stronghold.
A Verona dispatch of 2 p.m., Sniday, Bays
u great battle had been in progress since the
morning between thc Italians and Austrians;
both wings of the Italian army had already
been repulsed. The battle still continued.
Official dispatches from tha Austrian headquarters state that the Italians are driven
back across Rencoe (?) the Imperial army following. Our forces took several cannon,
many prisoners and behaved with extraordinary valor and endurance. The King was
employed in the attack and corps of army of
Mincio, and the reserve. Prince Amadus and
many generals wore wounded. The enemy
appears to have brought all his troops in succession under fire.
An official dispatch from the Italian headquarters, dated Sunday evening, says a desperate engagement had taken place in front
of Verona, lasting almost the whole day. The
first corps which was intended to occupy positions between Pcschcria and Verona did not
succeed in the attack. The second and third
army corps wcre unable to relieve the first
corps from thc assault. It had to sustain
itself against thc entire force of the enemy,
leaving thc two latter corps almost intact.
An Austrian detachment occupied Stclvio
Pass and desconded by way of Carmio in
Lombardy on Sunday night. Garibaldi is
[ near Lake Garda.
A Berlin dispatch, of the 26th, states it is
positively announced that the Hanoverian
army completely surrendered and the demand
of the King for twenty-four hours for deliberation on terms of capitulation had been
granted. A Florence dispatch of the 20th,
says, papers assert that want of success in the
first battle is but a new motive for redoubled
energy and perseverance; the country had
full confidence in the army, and that the war
against Austria should be continued until the
complete liberation of Venetia.
In a letter to the Colonial Secretary, dated
French Creek, '10th ultimo, Mr. O'Reilly, the
Gold Commissioner nt Big Bend, gives the
following account of the yield of gold in some
of the mining claims in Big Bend, vis,:
The —— Cempany, who hold six hundred
feet, and employ six man, took out in four
days, ending June 2d, $282 50, and in nine
days, ending June 26th, $657 25.
The claim, have ju*t completed their
wing dam, nnd washed up IU ounces in less
than one day.
Tho -claim, working four hands, in 26
days ending 27th June, realized $3,715 25.
The who only hold 100 feet of ground
between them, and who have averaged four
working men per day, have taken out from
the 10th to 22d June,'-$653 50.
The from  first three  days' washing,
ending 9th June, took out $800; the following
week, $1,U7 J5, aud in nine davs ending
28th June, $1,613 25.
The claim with four men working 15
days, washed up $1,358 40.

MESSRS. CORNWALL'S.
A telegram from Madrid, of the 22d, says,
yesterday eight regiments of foot artillery
and a regiment of horse artillery revolted
without officers, from the barracks they occupied, but were, however, retaken by troops
remaining faithful to the Government, and
after obstinate resistance the rebels surrendered at discretion.
Strength or Tin Gikuan Armies.—When
on a full war footing the Austrian army consists of 579,000 men. The Prussian array, including the Landwehr or militia, is composed
of 566,150 men. In case of supreme need
Bavaria can havo an army of 90,000 men,
but at present her whole available force is
69,984 men. The Hanoverian army ia about
'25,500 strong, and Saxon is of the same
strength. Wurtemburg can bring 28,000 men
into the field, and Baden about 18,700. Hesse
Darmstadt and Hesse-Cassel have together
about 24,000 men under their command.
jy There were found 160 yards of lace in
the back hair of a female smuggler on thc
Belgian border.
New York, July 8.—The Saxonia arrived
this evening.   She brings news to June 27.
Earl Russell announced in the House of
Lords, and Gladstone in the House of Commons, on the 26th, that in consequence of a
hostile vote, ministers had tendered their
resignations, but the Queen having invited
them to reconsider their determination, they
awaited her arrival in London, and would have
an interview with her next day.
Chicago, July 9.—A London correspondence gives full summary proceedings in regard to thc Reform Bill. The Ministry has
constantly carried their points by majorities
ranging from 5 to 25, when Lord Dunkellin
moved that the basis of borough franchise be
seven pounds rateable value instead of seven
pounds rental value, which it was estimated
would make a difference of 60,000 persons in
number, designed to be qualified at seven
pounds rateable, being equal to nine pounds
rental vote resulted in 306 for the Ministry
and .117 for Dunkellin's motion. Parliament
adjourned to await tho result. All parties
were already rallying for a popular election,
believing that dissolution of Parliament was
inevitable, for Gladstone had announced after
the above vote that from the mode of enfran
chisement "proposed in tho bill, the Ministry
are not under any circumstances or conditions prepared to recede. By it we intend to
stand. The Times endeavors to investigate
and explain away the division which it considers as dealing with mere details, and affirms
that it had no necessary boaring upon the
only principle now allowed to be in question,
viz.:—the admission of so many thousand
poor electors. The enlargement of the constituency has not yet been definitely put to
vote.

FOREST   HOUSE.
It will be seen by reference to another part
of this day's issue that the war so long
threatened in Europe has at last broken out
in earnest. The Italians seek by force of
arms to wrest Venetia from Austria whilst
the latter power is engaged with Prussia in a
conflict abeut tho spoils arising out of the
Danish war. So far France, Russia and England havo kept aloof from thc cmbroglio
which has led to the clash of arms, but there
aro not a few who consider that the astute
Emperor Napoleon will not permit tho war to
come to an end without the cession to France
of the Rhenish provinces. Up to thc latest
accounts the Hungarians had not made a

the Government had taken no steps whatever.
Notwithstanding that a considerable time has
elapsed since these reports must have reached
the Executive through thc Judge, there has
been no movement or sign of anything being
done to apprehend the culprits. Tho first
case to which attention was ealled was that
of an Indian who murdered a white man and
his wife on Fraser river in early days. The
murderer is residing in the neighborhood,
and is well known to both the tribes and white
men, and not the least trouble, so far as we
can learn, would be incurred in having him
arrested. The native who committed the
cold-blooded murder of poor Morgan last fall,
and subsequently made his escape from Quesnelmouth, is still in the country and is doubtless ready to perpetrate at any time as henious
a crime as that which tho evidence at the
Assizes of Quesnel shows ho was guilty of at
Soda Creek. The third instance is that of the
Indian who escaped from the officers at Williams Lake two years ago, and who were
found guilty of murdering some defenceless
white men. The inlluence upon the natives
generally of allowing the criminals to escape
heel so long. The course pursued by Prussia
against Denmark in the late war has completely alienated from her tho sympathies of
the British people which she possessed so
largely previously. The war is manifestly one
of aggrandizement on all sides, and will no
doubt be prosecuted with vigor by all parties.

Electrical Torpedoes.—Great improvements have been effected in the torpedoes so
much used in the late American war. Lieut.
Maury and Mr. N. J. Holmes have devised contrivances by which their integrity can be tested
while lying at the bottom of the water without firing and so destroying them. It is said
that for £10,000 Portsmouth might be scaled
against any enemy. A regiment or an ironclad could be destroyed at a cost not exceeding one of the monster steel shells, hundreds
of which would be used probably with little
effect against an attacking fleet. It is stated
that the Governments of Russia, Sweden and
Denmark have adopted the system.

The Sn\RP Practice Cask Again.—If our
New We8tmiostcr contemporary had referred
to thc article iu which we animadverted upon
tho irregular conduct of the toll-keoper at the
Alexandra Bridge, he would havo found that
our strictures wero baied upon a document issued and signed by the toll-keeper himself.
Wc have again to repeat that wo exposed the
illogal proceedings of the toll-keeper at the
special request of the principal merchants
of Yale, all of whom complain of the inconvenience which their men have been frequently put to'by tho toll-keeper's sharp practice.
Wc havo only done our duty as public journalists in the matter, and take no further
interest in it. If the proprietor of the bridge
wishes to have any information concerning the
matter at issue, ho can refer to any of the extensive finue engaged here in the forwarding
business.
Confederation.—The Toronto Globe speaking of the great political question agitating
the North American colonies says: It is to
be hoped that the Confederation scheme,
when completqd, will include Vancouver Island and British Columbia, the accounts from
which colonies are by no means encouraging;
for while an extravagant expenditure is kept
up, the colonists appear to be diminishing in
numbers. There is evidently a need in that
quarter of a go-ahead, and at thc same time
a wisely economical Government.
Indian Funeral.—The death of a native
at this town, on Saturday last, was the occasion of a grand funeral by his brother red
skins at present congregated here. Four
large northern canoes manned by fourteen
Indians, dressed out in their best attire,
started with the corpse up the river to the
place of sepulture. On the way they all
joined in a chant the effect of which at a distance was very good.
From the Big Bend Mines.
From parties who have arrivod here from
these mines wc learn that a great flood had
occurred on French Creek, which had proved
most disastrous to mining property. The
water on the creek rose, on the 2d instant,
to such a height as to carry away wing-dams,
wheels nnd sluice boxes in every direction,
and rendering it impossible for any mining to
be accomplished for several weeks. A terrific storm had also visited the same region,
felling trees in vast numbers. The new trail
from French Creek to the Columbia river was
rendered almost impassable by the fallen timber, and it will require a number of men for
some time to clear it for traffic. Several
trains had got into thc ereeks with goods
before the storm and provisions were greatly

Sliep. Bailey claim on French Creek was paying very well before the freshet. For the
night shift, six men working, the amount
washed up was $290. Several other claims
had been taking out pay.
LATEST.
Mr. Nelson, of Dietz k Nelson's Express
Company, arrived here last evening from
French Creek, which place he left on this day
week, the 9th inst. Ho stated that matters
were improving on tho creek, and most of the
companies had resumed work. Thc Jcnns
Company were reported to have washed up
on thc 7th inst. 25 ounces of gold from shallow diggings. The company next above
Capt. Donne's had got down a shaft 86 feet
and got a prospect of $0 in the gravel. Great
confidence was felt in the claim turning out
good. Mr. Nelson likes French Creek and
believes that it will turn out well yet. He
has brought down some dust with him which
is coarse and evidently washed gold.

The Roads.—We are informed by a man
who arrived from Cariboo on Saturday last,
that the roads arc in excellent condition all

Telegraphic Summary.
EUROPEAN   WAR.
The Times gives the following summary of
events in Venetia: The Italian army has been
divided into three corps and reserves making
tho forces from eighty to ninety thousand.
The combatants, after crossing tho Mincio at
Gaeta and other points, in the afternoon, and
sending reconnoitering parties toward Peschi-
era and Verona, encamped for the night beyond Rovcrculla, at a distanco from the two
fortresses. On the ensuing morning an attack
was made upon these high positions at Semma,
Campagna and Santa Guostina, which command liltecn miles of railway line, joining two
strongholds, n positiou which played a con-
spicious part in the campaign of 18-17. The
project of the Italians was evidently to take
possession ef the railways, so ns to isolate
Peschicrn and secure a base of operations
against Verona. The Austrians, however,
who were mussed in great force at Verona,
sallied forth from that place at daybreak, and
anticipating tho Italian movements, took up
their position on the hills, which were everywhere glistening w'th redoubts, nnd may be
looked upon as outer works of two citadels,
extending from the gates of one of those to
the other. After n severe, bloody and
desperate struggle, which lasted nearly the
whole day, the Imperial army was victorious
along the whole line. They stormed the
summit of Monte Verde, where tho Italians
hung out longest, and at the close of the engagement, nt 5 p. m., they nlso carried the
position of Custozza, a spot fatal to the Italian
army in their encounter with RadcUky, in
July, 1848. Italian and Austrian dispatches
do not differ materially about the engage
ment.

The Times believes this a favorable moment
for a diplomatic settlement of the war with
From a party who arrived in nine days from
Cariboo wc learn that mining prospects never
looked brighter than they do this season. A
very largo area of ground on Grouse Creek
has been proved to be auriferous, and from
prospects that have been found on Antler
Creek it is thought the lead runs clear through
from Grouse Creek. Several companies had
been taking out the best kind of pay on
Grouse Creek, and the utmost confidence is
felt that it will become a successful rival to
Williams Creek. There were between three
and four hundred men engaged on the creek,
and a town was beginning to spring up.
Business generally in Cariboo was not good,
and merchants were complaining badly. It Th
appears that there was too much competition,
and goods were being sacrificed by some unscrupulous  traders  to the manifest Injury of
army corps attacked the enemy at Fiernakan.
The battle commenced at 11 a. in. The Austrians were dfivon back.
A Prussian telegram dated Malaid 28th,
says an important battle, in which cavalry
and artillery were principally engaged, has
boon in progress to-day. The Austrians wero
driven back from near Glatz to Jaroiniz.
Three flags and many prisoners were taken.
Loss on either side unknown.
Latest London telegrams of tho 29th says,
tho news is conflicting, both sides claiming
tho advantage in tho encounter of the 28th
at Glatz No engagement reported as having
taken plncc since.
The Telegraph Company in Great Britain
furnishes additional particulars of the cngoge-
iiicnt nt Custozza. Tho left wing of iho
Italian army was attacked ut various points
simultaneously, aud crushed beforo the remainder of the army could come to their aid.
After tho battle tho army under command of
the Arch Duke, ndvnuced in pursuit of the
Italian army, which, to that time, had maintained its position. It was, however, driven
in nnd compelled to re cross the Mincio. The
Austrians also crossed the river, taking position on the Italian side Thc two armies then
stood facing each other, the Italians ut Volta,
tho Austrians five miles north of Solfcrino.
Thc alf.iir of Sunday, 28th, in no way disheartened the Italiacs. It is reported Franco
will not long remain quiet. Active intervention is reported to have been ngreed on.

Exciting Scene at a Menagerie.—On Saturday last, while Womb* ell's Menagerie was
being exhibited at Stirling, D'Avey, tho lion-
hunter, entered thc den with the performing
group of lions, when he was placed in rather
an alarming position by one of the lionesses
suddenly turning round upon him, and seizing
him by the left leg. D'Avey, with great presence of mind, seized his rifle,  and brought it
down with full force upon thi lioness's head, 	
''leaking the stock of the rifle in two, and
freeing himself from the grasp of thc lioness.                        „„ ._._.* „. -h.Me btotr

Jeu d'Esprit.—A rich specimen of Yankee

Tlio performances, besides including juggling
by barofaced acrobats nnd tumblers, are made
the medium of introducing to the audience j
the "learned elephant," Mr. Sweeney, who;
goes through many feats, such as "packing a
trunk for a trip to Canada, mid then unpacking it,  and lifting a pike and laying it down
again."     Train  appears as a "strong man
carrying the weight of the Irish Republic;"
and the clown, Mr. O'Mahoney (without eitherl
bridle to his hor6e or tongue) "jumps through |
the British Crown, and turns a great number!
of back somersaults."   A farce eallc-d "Beggar my Neighbor" is next represented by the
whole  company.     The beggar is played by
Stephens, and the principal  characters  are
" countrymen,   subscribers   to   thc   F:nian
