The large, three<atory warehouse of the Druuimond Tobacco company, corner o( Third and Spruce streeta.St.Louif, was destroyed by fire lust night. Tne Hr« oroke out about 6 o'clock in tbe evening and by 8:30 o'clock the stock in tbu building was alino.-t entirely destroyed and the oireetssurrounding the etrueturu were blocked with part of the walls and scores of broken telephone and telpgrapli wires. Thn big warehouse and all it contained were a total loss. "Theie was a large stock of tobacco in the building," said Mr. J. T. Drummond, when he arrived after the building was burned. I do not know ;he exact amount, but it will not vary (ar either way from a $260,000 loss." The building was erected in 1832 at a coot §£0,000. It was nrst occupied as a factory,and when the company buib tbe largo factory building directly went ot it two years ago the petitions were tiken out and it was convened into a storehouse. The building waa in insured for $16,000. The stock of tobacco nnd liqurice was insured for for $260,500. OATS—Just received, a ca-load ot choice Northern Oats.—G. A. Herb. 42 LINCOLN-SHIELDS DIFFICULT!. The most of the account* of the duel; (that did not come off) between Lincoln and Shields* fctate that' the parties went to Bloody Island, In" thn Mississippi river, for tho proposid encounter. The fact is that the two noted men mentioned, with their friends, came from SpringBald to Alton in carriages and then went to whit is now known us B lylesi' Island, opposite this city. Bloody Island being about 26 mile!) below, constituting part of East til. Louis. The late George'.T. Brown told of a curious circumstance in conneoiion with the proposed combat. Tbe trip across tbs river was made on a ferry boat, and, the affair having got noised nround, the people of Alton were greatly excited • in reference to It. When, as is well known, the diflicul. tywH? arranged and i he parties were returning, some wag m the party took a Jog of wood, spread over it a r«d garment and exposed it near the bow of the boat, thuj representing a bloody, proi-trate form as thoughjone of the duelists had fallen a.viotim to broad. «word practice, thn weapon, something similar to the Scutch olayicore, being the one agreed upon. By the way, Mr. D. S. Hoaglan, still a resident here, who was hero at that lime and an intimate friend of Mr. Lincoln'*. a»yg that Dr. R. \V. English, our last Democratic postmaster.then u resident of Carrollton, was the person who arranged tbe dif. ttculty between Lincoln and ShieWg, without bloodshed.
