Aug. 26.—No definite, report of fatalities in the On- touagon fire has yet been received, thpugh no doubt now exists that some occurred. Insurance statistics, however, arc probably complete.

The company losing heavieston that class of property is the Mechanics of Milwaukee, which had about. ?35,000 ut risk.

The fire departments from both cities responded and the citizens turned out in a body and fought the flames back for hours. Several houses in the outskirts were soon on fire, and although every effort was made to save them four dwellings ot poor families were burned. As even- Jug came 071 the wind changed and the danger was avoided. Every thing Ss dry- as tinder here, and unless there is rain soo'n there is danger of both towns being destroyed.
