              FIRE!  Last Sunday night about 9 o'clock, in the midst of a violent storm of wind
          and rain, fire was discovered bursting from the cooper's shop of Mr. Edwain Fernald,
          on Marina Wharf.  The fire department was soon on the ground, and notwithstanding the
          violence of the wind and the rage of the flames which were fed by a great amount of
          combustible material, succeeded in subduing the fire before it had spread much beyond
          it original limits.  The night was most tempestuous, and the howling of the wind, the
          rattling of the rain, the shouts of anxious men, the cries of affrighted women, and the lurid
         glare of the flames, conspired to render the scene truly terrible.
             The buildings destroyed, together with their contents, were a cooper's shop, and a
          large building used for storage on Main Wharf, owned by Mr. Edwin Fernald, and
          two cooper's shops and a boat building's shop on Stone Wharf, occupied by Messrs.
         Chase & Cushing, James L. Boyd, and Morreel & Dyer.
            A dwelling house at the head of Stone Whaft was also somewhat injured. Nearly
          1000 bushes of corn belonging to Mr. Fernald was destroyed, and he estimated his
          loss at $6000, insured for $5000.
            The loss on buildings owned by Mr. Elias Thomas is said to be about $4000. No
            The work was undoubtedly the  work of an incendairy, whose hellish deed will yet
          meet with its just punishment.

          is supposed have been the theft.

              Lermond & O'Brien's store was burned in Thomaston a week since. Loss $4000;
          insured for $2000.

              John Shaw, for 40 years a cashier of Lincoln Bank, Bath, died on Sunday last,
          aged 74.

              Mr. John Balch, of Newburyport, Mass., for many years treasurer and agent of
           Bartlett Mills, was driving through Topsham on Tuesday week, when he got out of the
          carriage to adjust the head-stall of the horse.  The horse sprung suddenly, and throwing
          Mr. Balch down, the carriage passed over him, fracturing his spine and otherwise injuring
          him.  He was taken up, and it was found the lower part of his body was completely
          paralyzed.  He died the same evening. He was for many years a prominent citizen of

              The Anson Advocate says  John Ray, Junior of Solon a young man about 20 years old,
          was drowned at Carratunk Falls, just below the main pitch last week.  The same paper
          say that team after team goes through that place every day loaded with corn.  The farmers
          buying it for the coming winter, and many already feeding it to their stock-failing pastures
          making it necessary.

              Monday afternoon about 7 o'clock, a river driver by the name of Joe Redman from
          St. George, Canada, performed the very daring feat of riding a log from the toll bridge
          down through the swift water to the eddy just below this village. Any one who has ever
          been in Skowhegan knows how swiftly the water runs above and below the railroad
          bridge; we should judge that it runs in some places at the rate of a mile in three minutes-
          perhaps even at a more rapid rate.  The feat came off with scarecely any  previous
          announcement, still quite a large crowd gathered on the railroad bridge to witness it.
          Redman did the deed with the ease and dexterity and as though he was entirely at home
          on his log, dashing through the boiling water with only his pick pole to steady himself.
          Several times the log plunged beneath the water, but still its rider clung bolt upright. He
          jumped up from his log several times, turned and rode backwards and performed other
          feats to show his dexterity.  We learn the exploit was instigated by a wager of ten dollars,
          which was quickly made  up with ten or fifteen more with it. Redman has driven the
          Kennebec for fifteen years. Skowhegan Reporter.

          or branches, about half an inch in length to the number of a dozen which  it fastens on to the
          prey till it has eaten enough to satisfy itself. The fore paws are like the human hand, and the
          feet are like those of a cat.  The length of the animal is about six inches.

                                     CUMBERLAND COUNTY
              The Bridgeton News gives an account of the robbing of the town
          treasury two or three times recently, of small sums of money. A watch was
          kept and on Sunday week the thief was detected in the person of a "young
          man belonging to one of the first families, of ample means, and enjoying largely
          the confidence of the community, which possibly may have been somewhat
          shaken of late by his apparent reckless expendiute of money at the livery
          stables, etc. He acknowledge having visited the box four time, once taking
          $70.66, and another time $6.00.  Twice he took nothing. The News says
          after a careful consideration of the case in all its bearings the town officers
          voted to prosecute the offender to the full extent of the law, but the officer
          whose duty it was to sign the warrant refused to do so, being on friendly
          terms with the family of the accused and preferring to make good the loss to
          the town, rather than to be instrumental in causing the offender to be punished.
          No warrent, therefore, was issued and the young man was allowed to go on
          his way rejoicing.  Mr. George F. Chadbourne, the sentinel who detected the
          rogue was hid in the room adjoining the chamber where the money was kept
          by Mr. Frost, the treasurer. The young man looked into this room and assumed
          great indignation to find Mr. Chadbourne, thus intruding upon the privacy of
          Mr. Frost's home under such suspicious circumstances, and seized upon the
          opportunity to severely reprimand him for such a misdemeanor."
