While the people of New Brunswick who •flftk .their jert.<t?«ennly JKHB* -were enjoying their soundest sleep during the darkest and stillest hour before the dawn of Sunday morning, their slumber was rudely broken by the cry of " Fire" quickly followed by the brazen clangor of the bells,ringing out tbe wild alarm that the treacherous incendiary had been again at bis dastardly work.

We have testimonials wLich prove that ; Oattrodyne has cured dyspepsia of 26 yean Cures all stomach trouble* For Burnet street down to the canal at tbe Ci ty Dock. Mr. Sbellady, who is watchman for Banyon Brothers and also for John Collier, ice oean, whose premises adjoin, tells tbe following regarding tbe discovery of the fire : " I bad made a tour through the alley from the canal up and through the yard inside, daring which I noticed that the big gate next the stable was locked and I know I had the key in my pocket. "After looking for prowlers in the alley at about 3.02, I went into tbe yard by the gate next the office and walked dawn past the first warehouse and to tbe stable which I saw was all on fire among the straw on the floor and in a moment the whole place was in a blaze. I ran into the stable to try to save the horses, but found it utterly impossible. I then ran out into the alley where I saw two Hebrew butchers who were crying 'Fire.' I also gave the alarm. I kept trying to save the horses until the flre drove me away/' THE FIKST ON HAND. The first persons to arrive on the sce^ne of the fire were WllU*m H. Price, William Faulkner, Samuel Gourley, Watchman William Budlnot and another whose name has escaped us. They went down the alley to the gate at the end of tbe stable and finding it locked broke it open with considerable difficulty. The interior of the stable was then entirely in flames. SPREADING THE ALARM. While this was going on Max Kregloh, who was to go fishing with Loul* Bildebrand, started to call the latter and on opening his front door on Burnet street, opposite what Is known aa Central Dock alley, he saw tbe fire and carried tbe alarm to tbe bouse of PhcEolx Engine Company, No. 8. At this time Peter Dunn and Henry Banker, who are employees of Rolfe &8one, and whehave Instructions in the event of fire to use their first efforts to save tbe horses got into the lumber yard and after seeing that the horses were not in danger, thejj got oat the hose belonging"tb^he Saw Mill and got a stream on tbe rear of the old Dunham property occupied by Adam PaullB, cigar manufacturer, tbe roof of which had caught fire from the flying sparks. ^ lu the meantime the flames at Ruoyon's w\)Bre blazing high and tbe sparks were being blown in a southwesterly direction for a long distance down town. Green's Pottery, Battler's Sash and Blind Works, the National Iron Works and others who had hose got It out and made preparations to fight for their property, should the fire spread. In the meantime, Washington, No 1 and Phoenix, No. S, had both reached the scene and got streams on. At this point something occurred that seeme to lead to tbe conclusion that it was not only an Incendiary fire, bat that it had been started in two places. William Faulkner, of No. S, eaye : '' Our company bad got a stream Into the stable which bad somewhat deadened the blaze, and the prospect looked well for putting it out altogether, when suddenly the flames burst through the roof, not over the fire In the stable, but some distance further up toward the main warehouse, which was quickly all on fire and burned down with the stable." THE POOB HOBSB8. There were seven valuable horses in Run- yoo Brother's stable when tbe fire broke out. Six of them were burned to death at their mangers, and the seventh, by the burn Ing away of big halter, got away into the street, but he was so terribly burned that be had to be killed as an act of mercy. Among the horses burned were two of the finest teams of draught horses in this section, also Peter P. Rnnyon'* road horse, a fine speedy animal valued at $1,000. Tbe almost human screams of tbe horses in their fiery torture before slow death mercifully relived them of their misery, were most pitiful to bear. THE PHOPEBTT DESTROYED. The Fire Department was upon the ground promptly and efficiently, and poured water upon the flames like a deluge, but despite ail they could do the stable and tbe large frame warehouse extending op to the brick building containing the offices and sales- r oom>, were, witb their valuable contents, entirely destroyed. The brick building witb its large stock of flour, seeds and grocery Htock, was saved entire. Tbe old warehouse, extending from the stable down to the dock and filled with hay and grain, was saved, like tbe brick building, by the prompt and well directed effort* ol the firemen. The buildings destroyed were frame structures two stories high, about 30 feet wide and 150 feet long. They had come through tbe flre which about a year ago destroyed the coal sheds of Runyon Brothers and also the large ice houses of John Collier. The rebuilt coal sbedi only'escaped destruction in this fire because they were corered with corrugated iron. This fact also prevented fie flames from reaching Mr. Collier's property. TEB NEIGHBORS PREPARE TO FLEE. Mr. Collier and Peter Zimmerman early after the flre started got out all their wagons and took their bones to places of safety. All the people living in tLe houses on Burnet street from Runyon's corner down to the tee house, who suffered severely in the - fire last year, made preparations to save their property aa far as possible and some of them removed portions of it. ANOTHER THKOBT. While tbe theory of incendiarism is the most generally accepted there are some who incline to that of accident. One of the horses was taken sick Saturday *nd a member of the firm was at tbe stables at a late hour that night attending to the animal and arranging for Its care during the night. At 10 SO o'clock he lea. At that time there was no light of any kind in the building. It is understood, however, that an employee was Instructed to come later in the night to give the horse some medicine. It is possible that in doing this he dropped a cigar or cigarette, or some matches, or even left tbe lantern in the stable within reach of the horse's boon. 'The animal stepping upon the matches or knocking over tb« lantern, might thus bare started tbe flre. i hose who were first on the scene say it was very evident that tbe fire had started from the centre of the building, for when it was first discovered tbe entire interior was most intact. If an incendiary set tbe build- Ing on flre be must have been thoroughly acquainted with the structure and tbe means of getting into and out of It. PROMPTNESS OF THE FIREMEN. Owing to the night before being Saturday night a great many of the saloons in the lower part of the city were stHl open when the alarm came and tbe result was that it was spread very rapidly and responded to very qnickly by the firemen. Under any other circumstances the destruction must have been much greater. FIBEMBN HURT. William Plechner, of Phoenix Engine Company No. S, was badly injured at the fire He was at the nozz'e with another fireman when the force of the water took the nozzle from their hands. The full force of tbe water struck Plechner in tbe face and injured both eyes. Dr. Long attended the injured man. The right eye is seriously injured and it is feared that the sight will be impaired. Oscar Bauer, of tbe same company was also badly burned about the face. and hands while at work at the fire. The Two First RUTftEBS EVENTS. Games of tlie Football Season. LOCATIONS OF 'ENGINES. The various engines were located aa follows : No. 1, at Schareman and Burnet street ; Liberty Hose was attached to No. 1 ; Tbe game of football with Lehlgh on Sat- urdar resulted in a defeat for Rutgers by, a record of 24 to 0. The Rutgers team played B very good game, but Lehigh played so much faster that our boys were put at a disadvantage. The day was so hot that they did not play regulation halves, the first being 25 minutes and tbe second 15. Lehigh did a good deal of fumbling while Rutgers ought to have done better interference. Oo the whole tbe playing was as good as could be expected so early in the season. Tbe teams lined up as follows : Rutgen. Positions. Leliigh. Danner..

Tbe appearance of the fire when at its leight was as grand in its spectacular beauty as it was terrible in its destructive power, mmediately over the burning buildings there was a dense cloud of black smoke, up through which the bright flames shot like a blazing volcano, lighting up with great brll igncy «ky, city and river, rendering the con- lagration visible for many mllea around and bringing out with great effectiveness the scenic beauty of the Highland Park blufis. FIRE IN THE BUINS. Notwithstanding the immense amount of water thrown upon tbe debris the flames broke out again twice. Once at 9 o'clock -Sunday morning and again at 4 40 on Sunday afternoon,but both blazes-were promptly subdued by the fire patrol and firemen with the hose kept on the scene ready attached. L^SS AND INSURANCE. From the most careful estimates we have- been able to gather the loss of Runyon Brothers in buildings, horses, bay, grain, flour and other stock will be about $15,000 The insurance Is as fohows : Freight House — Liverpool, London & Globe, $ 1,500, N. T. Parker; St. Paul, $1,000, R. G. Miller ; Guardian, $1,000, N. T. Parker; Royal, $1,000, N. T. Parker; Ira perial, $1,000, J. B. Kirkpatrick. Brick Store—Imperial, $2,000, J. B KirkPatrick; ^tna, $1.000, N. T. Parker; Guardian, $500, N. T. Parker ; New Hamp shire, $500, N. T. Parker. Hay and Flour House— ^tna, $500, N. T. Parker; Imperial, $500, J. B. Kirkptttrick. Salt House—Firemen's Fund, $500, R. G. Miller. The following Insurance was held in the agency of N. T.,Parker : Ellas Runyon, on Buildings—The Mer- bants', of Newark, $750; Norwich Union, $1,500 ; total, $2,250. Runyon Bros , on Stock, etc.—^Etna, of 3artford, $500 ; Royal, of Liverpool, $1,000; Juardian, of London, $1,000 ; Liverpool, London & Globe, $1,500 ; total, $4,000. The whole insurance amounts to $16,750. INCIDENTS OF THE FIRE. The old Clancy warehouse which was gutted by tbe fire a year ago still stands there a constant menance to surrounding property. It was on fire on Sunday morning but was extinguished before it could seriously spread the flames. The old shell should be removed at once. ' This morning Runyon Brothers had a new and ftne trim gray team of horses on band to replace tbe team that was burned. The team they lost were, also iron grays and were to have drawn Raritan Engine No. 4, In the parade tomorrow. The firemen were caused conslderabe additional trouble as all the companies bad their apparatus cleaned up in readiness for the biennial parade and have had all their work to do over again. The fire will not be allowed by Runyon B,others to interfere with their business, and as soon as the Insurance adjusters are out of the way the work of rebuilding will begin. Terrance Clancy was employed to take the bodies of the burned horses away and bury them. The digging out of the animals bodies from the debris was a sickening spectacle. The fire patrol left to watch the debris in case of a second breaking out were Alfred Buwee, of No. 5 ; Conrad Stlliger, of Hook & Ladder Company and Alfred Hulse, of No. 4. Tbe firemen desire to express their thanks to Mrs Isaac Elkins, of Macom's Hotel, and to Mr. Charles Paul Is for the generous supply of hofrcoffee furnished by them. The carcasses of the burned horses were 'till In the ruins this morning, but they will be removed as soon as the insurance adjusters have made their inspection. The horse that waf badly burned and escaped to the street was killed by Dr. Lob- leln, because it was Impossible to save him.

A dastardly outrage was committed on Albany street last evening by some one of the scoundrels Who make a habit of forcing their attentions upon defenceless young women. The victim was so badly frightened that she was taken with a violent fit ol hysteria, which came very near having serious consequences. The young woman was Walking down Albany street, and when JAMfag^low Neilson street was approached by a would be master, who stepped to her side and tried to start a conversation. Terror stricken at the Insult she stark d to run. He pursued her and caoght her-by the arm. She struggled with the fellow and began to shriek iu terror. Her assailant .frightened by her cries, released her. Aa she was struggling to get away from him when his hold was released she fell Into the gutter, striking her head against tbe cnrb\ Her shrieks meanwhile had aroused the neighborhood and Mr. John Greenewald who lives near by, with several neighbors, lifted up the woman who, by this time was wildly hysterical and carried her to Mr. Greenewald's residence. Here she was given every attention and under Mrs. Greenewald's care soon recovered. She refused to give her name or addrcsq, and left, after thanking Mr. and Mrs. Greenewald for their kindness. She could not give any description of her assailant. H'e was doubtless one of the gang that bangs round this section of the city That a woman should be submitted to the daoger of insult and assault Is outrageous and shows the need of police activity to break up the pernicious habit some alleged men have of accosting young women on the A SEPTUAGENARIAN.
