ihe Burning of Moscow.

occupation of Moscow, and (he snljse
qiient buttling of Ihe city by the IJns
siiins. an matters of history, from
which we quole tlie following:
"On Wednesday, Septeiilber loth,
lSli Napoleon took up his headijiiar
ters in the Kremlin, ami on tlie same
day the tire broke out in the Kital
Oorotl. The night of (he Kith was 11
liliuluatAd by (he lire oi'a general cpa
llagniliisi. The explosion of the bal
loons 6t iliiine which were seen falling
from Hie lops of towers showed the
menus which xvero licing taken to
fprcail the lire. A vast sea of Haines
illuminated the horizon for mile, an
nouncing to ihe unhappy Muscovites
who still lingered neat the town, that
their homes no lunger existed. The
ditt'erent quartet's of the town took
tire, burned and disappeared all at
once. Heaps of calcined and blacken
ed slones Indicated Ihe spot where
!;oiises. had stood. The silence of ter
ror was only interrupted by a roaring
like that of the waves of a stormy sea ;
this was produced by Ihe wind, which,
driving with violence the torrent of
flame, hurried far anil wide the des
troying element, l-'roni time to time
whole buildings fell with a crash.
Wherever the eye turned nothing
could lie seen but smoking ruins and
devouring flames. Kver and anon
Wis heard the mournful loll of a bell,
which sounded like (he signal passed
between one and another of equal des
truction, in spite of Ihe vigilance of
tlie sentries posted at the houses, the
lire spread as if ii hail been driven by
.111 invisible power. Although a great
part of lite town was built of wood, it
took many days of general conflagra
tion to consume it. At last in most
quartet's of the town there were left so
lew traces of iiabttatlons that the
streets could hardly be recognized.
Human bodies half burned, and the
dead carcasses of horses, cows and
dogs, lay hi the midst of (lie ruins.
,OUO houses, besides a great number
of palaces, were reduced to ashes;
scarcely 0,000 houses were left stand
ing. The private loss by the destruc
tion of houses and their contents was
calculated at not less than 30,000,000
iljlUK)0,000.) and this was prolmbly
under the murk. Tlie first torch
w hich set Moscow ablaze was said to
have been applied by Count Kostop
cliouc, the Governor of tlie city.''
A Pleasant Anecisitk. Itcv.
Thomas Alexanderof ihe English Pres

died of apoplexy. A London corres
pondent to (he Presbyterian vouches
for ihe truth of the following anecdote:
This winter Mr. Alexander observed
a curate frequently passing his window
in (lie cold mornings without a great
coat, cold anil uncomfortable, with tlie
look oi genteel penury which too often
attaches To the poorly paid curates of
the ISngllsh Church." lie went out to
"Cap you make a emit without see
ing the man who is to wear it. ?"
That was doubtful.
"Can you make a coat If you see the
man, without measuring him,"
The tailor though! he might.
"Then lie ready when I call for you."
The next day, accordingly, When
(he cnralo was seen approaching. Mr.
Alexander hurried out to his tailor,

tance ijehlnd the unsuspecting man.

anil send it to him: hut mind you.it
you give him the slightest inkling that

So the two parted. Mr. Alexander

window w ith Ihe great coat on, nil ex

"There are probably from eighty to

ASECDOTE of Tom Couwin. The
death of Tom Corwin, which gives us
all aprrOw, served to revive many good
stories concerning him. When quite
a young man he was elected a mem
ber of the General Assembly of the
Stale of Ohio, and early in the session
he brought in a bill for Ihe destruction
of the public whipping-post. He
made an 'early speech In favor of the
measure, (o w hich an elderly member
replied as follows: "Mr. Speaker, tie
gentleman Is not as old as I am, and
has not seen as much ot the practical
operation of the system of punishment
which lie desires to abolish, iiiieul
lived in Connecticut, if a fellow stole
a horse, or cut up other antics, we
used to lie him up and give him a real
good thrashing; and he always clear
ed rigid out. and we never saw any
thing more of him. It's the liest way
ot gelling rid of the rogues that ever
was (rieil. and without expense to the
State." Mr. Corwin, who never fail
ed to carry his xiut by a Joke, if the
argument was against iiim, inly made
the brief reply : "Mr. Speaker, I have
often been puzzled to account for the
vast emigration from Connecticut to
tlie West, but the gentleman last, up
has explained it to my satisfaction."
It Is almost needless to say that Mr.
Corwin's Pill passed by an overwhelm

A Broadway dandy, whose elolhes
were as (nigra nt of musk, cologne,
and oilier perlumes as though they
had been dipped in a tank of extracts,
was exhibiting himself oil the steps of
one of our hotels, when a Yankee
from the country came out and stood
beside him. to bis great annoyance.
lie showed his disgust in many ways,
and filially d ied lo raise a laugh at
the Yankee's expense. The Yankee
took no offense ; but said to him : "I
say. shall I tell you how to take the
smell out of tllOUl 'ere clothes ? There
is no use of carrying that 'ere smell
round, You jit bury them "ere
clothes about a foot in the sand, and
in a week they'll smell as sweet as
mine.'' Our dandy has not since

Kiaora Falls to be Utilized.
Mr. Horace II. Day, of New York,
proposes to US0 the water power of

propel nil canal boats, lie says com
