The sparks new in myriads, and the smoke rolled otlin dense t0Th'eniarpe brick structure, 100 feet square, and four stories In height, stood at the southwest orner of Twelfth ana Duttouwood streets.

The building had been erected only some four or five Tears. was owned by Colonel William B. Thomas. The furnace room was in the sunt Meant corner of the cellar, and here the flames tirst caught sturtcd, it is supposed, by a lire too large and hot. Owing to the combustible nature of the contents cf the place the lire spread with fearful rapidity, and in a short tlmo the entire structure was in flames.

Tho heat from the burning building was Intense, and ths firemen were, at dinerent times, driven away some distance from the scone. Messrs. Sibley A Ponnypacker, coopers and barrel manufacturers, occupied certain portions of tlio building. They hud several thousand finished bur-rels on hand, but both gentlemen being absent from the city, neither tbelr loss nor their insurance can bo ascertained with any deflultencss. The barrels were an consumed.

Colonel Thomas, the owner of the building, used TwrtioDs of It to store barrels of flour. At the time if the tire he had there some lOiw barrels, which were all destroyed, entailing a loss ol 8T000. In- BULo's on the building also Insured. He had policies in the following companies: Lvcorainit Mutual fjO.OOO Cumberland Valley Mutual Mutual, of Philadelphia 0,000 In dlirerent foreign companies 12,000 Total The fourth story of the building is used occasionally as an armory by the regiment commanded by Coionel Thomas, llere a few muskets were racked. No.

430 nnd 4r2 Twelfth street were occupied by Messrs. Kile Hall, saw and pattern manufacturers. The buildings were owned by Mr John Kile. They were badly damaged in the rear. Loss on building, $1000; on stock, 85000.

Insured as follows oyal tsJM iEtna d(HM) Total tsooo At the N. W. comer of Twelfth and Buttonwood streets is a four-story orick structure, formerly used as an United States army hospital. It is owned by Mr. William P.

llaganian, and occupied, on the ilrst floor, by the lirm of William D. Haguman felt hat manufacturers. Warrington steel pen manufacturers, occupied certain portions of the second aad third floors. The "Hhive-( iovernor Company" likewise occupied other portions of the second story. The fourth story was occupied by Connelly A Seville, brass turners.

No. 1212, next dwelling to tho west, occupied by Mr. Smith, was likewise unroofed by the lire, and eiugeu wnn water. No. 1211, opposite, owned by Alexander Sitae, and occupied by Louisa SmiUi, was slightly damaged by lire.

On Twelfth street, below Buttonwood, the three-SUiry buildings, occupied by Thomas M. aus, awning-post and frame manufacturer; C. H. Mellor, machinist, and other firms, were slightly damaged by fire, but the stock coutalned tilt-rein suffered only by water. On the west Bide of Twelfth street, directly opposite the manufactory, the cabinet establishment of W.

A J. Alleu was scorched, and only saved bv the firemen constantly playing on the building, other properties adjoining were also scorched by the tire. while the Are was at its height, considerable con-Bternatiou prevailed among the residents of the neighborhood, owing to the report being circulated that in the Armory of Thomas' Keglmeut was stored a quantity of powder. This report was untrue but, notwithstanding, many believed it, and the stampeao Of the citizens from their dwellings was great. Colonel Thomas' building is a complete wreck, nothing remaining but three walls.

The southwest wall fell in about 1 o'clock, but, fortunately, no one was injured. Only a short time since Messrs. Sibley Penny-packer had their manufacturing establishment on Willow street. They were burned out there, and were forced to seek new quarters; consequently the mill of Colonel Thomas was rented now thev are again burned out. in the rear of Thomas' building, and running out of Hamilton street, is a row of Hiuall court houses These were all slightly scorched.

The threatening appearance of the lire had caused the occupants to remove their household effects. The only loss mstained by them was in breakage, incurred in the hasty removal of goods. The Extra AssEss.MENTs.-The sittings of the assessors to-day, to-morrow, and from 10 A. M. to 7 P.

The peach is large and a cling stone. information was asked for us to the "Mountain. Hose." Mr. Quinn, of New York, akel that strawberries be taken np Instead of peaches.

Not agreed to. Inlormalion as to the ilale's Early was next called for. The Secretary announced that it was on the catalogue, and was suitable for a number of places. President Wilbur, of Mass said that it rots in the open air, but under glass was line. Mr.

lieckman, of Georgia, stated that It ripened with them early In June, an.l in New York brought 810 a box. It did not rot with him. lie considered it the best early Southern peach. Mr. Cohen, of Tennessee, spoke favorably of it; it had done finely.

Mr. Williams, of Delaware, said it did badly with him, being somewhat lUble to rot. It was considered a failure in Kentucky. Mr. (iillingham, said that it rotted when cultivated, but when not cultivated it appeared to do well.

Mr. Lindlcy, of Virginia, raised It on sandy soil, and did very well, turning out perfect. Mr. Scott, of Pennsylvania, called for tho "Susquehanna." Mr. lSeekman, of Georgia, considered it superior in size and llavor, but not proline.

It invariably produces from the start. Mr. ITieson, of Tennessee, also said it did well. This was concurred in by gentlemen from the District of Columbia nnd Kentucky. Mr.

President Wilbur, of Massachusetts, spoke favorably of it. Mr. llolton, or New York, had cultivated it, and it bore good fruit. Mr. Lin.lley had a tree this season in a house which bore thirty line large peaches, It being a young tree.

He considered this as doing very well, bnt yet it was not very productive. Mr. Bcckman, of Georgia, would not approve Of its cultivation, being of no value in the market. Mr. Parsons, of Long Island, said it had done well with him, and grew finely, but the flavor was none too tine.

Mr. Downer, of Kentucky, said he never failed to get a good crop. Mr. lieckman, of Georgia, said it was a bright Ver million, and liked It very much, but ripened too soon, early In June. It sold very well In the market, and was free from curculis.

Dr. Hunter, of New York, had raised a large vari ety of plums. He had adopted the plan of planting his trees over an artificial pond, and for many years was never troubled with the curculis. Trees, where the water was drained from the pond, suffered terribly from the ravages of the Insect. Mr.

This place is filled with people to-day, congregating here to witness the dedication of a monument in memory of the soldiers who died in defense of their country during the late Rebellion. This day is also the anniversary of tho battle of Antietam. The event had long been anticipated, and luTitations had been scattered, broadcast. A majority of them hayc been accepted, and though we have lowering clouds overhead, the ceremonies give promise of great interest nnd success.

From your city have come a number of military organ i.ntions and firemen; aud if we judge by tho organizations now scattered about, the procession will be a very large and brilliant one.

Of the monument to be dedicated, the following is a faithful description: The base consists of four parts. The three blue marble bases are from Messrs. Adams Derr's ouarrles, near the Kinit-of-Prussia, the lirst of which in si.e and perfection has few rivals, its dimensions ueinn eignt lect square ny two reet deep, xne secon.i ba9e six feet seven inches square by twenty Inches deep, and tne tinr.i, uve lect six inches square oy sixteen Inches deep.
