Ice United Stales consul-general at Con-
Mtiu. ple, nuder dale of August 23, reports
. tlie g la te Department, a sensible abate
ment in tbe cbolera since his last dispatch,
fbe number of deaths on the 21st was one
u ,,dred and forty-three, while heretofore it
seceded two thousand in a single day.
The great fire which followed close upon the
msis of the epidemic, as the great fire in
.oodon did upon the plague, in thus described
n an English paper:
This terrible fire, we Regret to state, has
)e eu attended with far more serious loss of
,r<iijerty than was expected when tbe first
ciremm was sent to London ; and it now
tunw out that no fewer than two thousand
E j ?b t hundred houses, public buildings, and
jEcts dedicated for divine service, have
jeeu, for the most part, leveled with the
jrnuud. There are certainly few exceptions,
where the walls are standing, but the prin
cipal mosques are now uowhere to be seen.
accounts forwarded this (Friday) morn
ing to the different insurance companies in
tin; city are of a harrowing nature. Some
idea of the extent of the sufferings of over
22,500 persons who had to i'ush out of their
habiUti'ius almost uaktcl to-escape from the
ravages of the flames. It Wi uld appear that
the conflagration commenced in a building
two stories high. From that part (tie flames
spread with rapidity, igniting in succession
whole rows of houses and stores on the
northwest side. The scene amongst the
[poor people was pitiable in tbe extreme.
I The meager means of contending with such
a fire were found perfectly’ inadequate, and
added to that the water supply was equally
insufficient. Explosions ot a tearful charac
ter followed in rapid succession, nud it was
leared that, as the buildings came toppling
down, several men Wuo were assisting bad
been crushed to death. It was not, however,
clearly 1 stated whether any’ lives had been
sacrificed, the excitement and confusion
■ being so great that' the agents of the different
insurance offices were unable to ascertain;
1 but there was strong ground for supposing
' that a great loss of life hud taken place.
1 (i it was found perfectly impracticable To
find shelter for the whole of the burnt-out
p-nple and their children, aud they had to
■ ■ utem themselves by sleeping in fields and
g rdeus mar. When the last telegram was
received prayers were being Offered up to the
Almighty to stop the ravages of the fire.—
The principal portions of the houses were
e imposed, in a great measure, of timber,
which, of course, will account for the extra
ordinary spread of the flames. No confla
gration of such magnitude has taken place
ince the burning of the city of Hamburg;
nnd it is stated that more persons b.tve lost
their homes, and all they possess, than then
was even at that conflagration. Mr. Hodsall,
assessor, of losses, aud several other geutle
men belonging to the different fire Offices,
have sent specially down to ascertain h"W
the insurance companies of tbe city and pro
vincial towns are interested; and also to in
quire into the cause of the terrible calamity,
and how many persons are left unprovided
lot. The fire is now considered to have been
fairly stopped at each point, and unless the
wiud should spring up, thtre was no danger
of any iuritier extension ot mischief. Whole
streets, squares, mosques, and government
buildings, were blazing away at the same
lime. Measures have at once been takeu to
get up a subscription for the housing of the
poor burnt-out creatures, which U is to be
hoped will be liberally responded to*by the
more fortunate inhabitants.
A IIORHIBLE AFFAIR,
Mutiny on Boat'd a Liverpool Vessel-
Murder, Suicide, Drowning
[From tlie New York World.]
A frightful instance of the demoralization
common among a large number of passen
geis of mixed classes upon a long sea voy
age, occurred ou beard of tbe ship Calhoun,
Cupt. Page, which arrived at this port yes
terday, from Liverpool. The Calhoun had
thiee hundred aud sixty-five passengers, and
a cargo of Merchandise consigned to Spot
lord, Tileston & Cos.
The journal of the ship presents a record
of mutiny, murder, and suicide of the most
astonishing chaiacter. All sorts of crime
seem to have held sway over the ill-fated
crew, and lawlessness prevailed during the
voyage. The catalogue of crime had its be
ginning on the 14th <>! August, when, while
sue ship was lyiug quietly in the liver Mer
sey, Charles Green, the steward of Ibusbip,
committed suicide by swallowing poison, aud
was buried in Liverpool. His example seem
ed iulectiuus, for, on the Ist of September,
Frederick Jargensen took his owu lile by ■
jumping overboard from the side of the ver
sed. Ou the 19th, Francis William?, the se
cond officer of the ship, succumbed to a vio
lent attack of brain fever, and thus the ves
sel was deprived of an impoituut officer.
On the 21st the discontent of the crew
about the quantity and quality of food doled
out to them broke forth with great violence
in a combined attack upon the cook, who
,v as probably not the one responsible for
their enure of corop.laiut. In the melee
which ensued upon tills outbreak, among so
many passengers, pistol shots were freely ex
changed, and one man, James Maloue, a sea
man, was shot to death. The crew continued
In a mutinous condition, and seized a couple
of their officers, whom they thrust into the
wheel house, and strictly guarded.
Upon the Calhouu's arrival yesterday, a
Fteain-tug was dispatched in search of naval
assistance and speedily, with the United
States revenue cutter Crawford, Captain T.
Clumn, in tow. Tbe captaiu finding the
ship s crew iu a state of mutiny, he immedi
ately released the imprisoned officers and
thrust the remainder of the ctew in irons.
The Crawford remained in|eomptuiy with the
Calhoun uutil reaching tne city, when her
captain bad the disorderly crew turned over
to the proper authority.
A Step in tue Right Direction.—- It will
be some satisfaction to the travelling public
to know that the Grand Jury have indicted
tbe proprietors of the Peckskilf bpal Arrow,
for the manslaughter of those parties who
lost their lives by the explosion on board that
steamer. It is the first time, we believe, that
responsible parties iu the ownership of steam
boats or railroads have been held to a legal
accountability on a criminal charge.—.V. Y.

The Feniau Movement.
Grand Rally at tlie Cooper Institute—
Let I ure by Ll. Col Wm R. Roberta—
Remarks by Col. O'.Ho. hotly- and Hr.
John Uogun—Great Untliu.lum. Ac.
The largest gathering of the Fenian Broth
erhood which lias met in New York since the
inception of the movement was convened
last evening in tbe Cooper Institute. Long
before the hour appointed for the commence
ment of tlie proceedings (he spacious build
ing was crowded in every part, the audience
being composed in part ot the. daughters of
Eriu. Tlie principal object of the Hrother
huod-in assembling «a mass * was to listen to a
lecture by Lt. Col. Wm. R. Roberts of the
BetmlHl Regiment New York State Militia,
upon a theme appropriate to the object sought
to be promoted by the association. A com
pany of the Ninety ninth New York Volun
teers was detailed in various parts of the
building to preserve order.
At eight o’clock Col. John O’Mabony, ac
companied by a number of prominent mem
bets of the Fenian Brotherhood, made hits
appearance on tlie platform, which was the
signal tor great cheering. He introduced
tlie lecturer of tlie evening, who, in his in
troductory remarks, said be Was gratified to
see such a signal aud overwhelming demon
stration in She cause of the Niobe of nations
—poor, oppressed and deeply injured Ireland.
(Applause.) He trusted tbe time had come
when tlie people would distinguish carefully
between the gratitude they owed the mau and
ttbe allegiance due their country. Col. Roberts
then, iu eloquent terms,drew a vivid picture of
the efforts made by the people of tlie Ameri
can colonies in 177« to ghuke of the despo
tism of the ‘ ‘royal brute," George HI, which
they did by the sword, the only talisman
that brave men wielded against tyrants. The
Euglisb government wastue most deadly and
subtle toe of human freedom beneath the
blue arch of heaven. When Americans tri
umphed over tlie cursed power of a defeated
and humiiated king they held up t the
world tlie principle of the majesty and di
vinity of the people. That principle was
welcomed by the Irish people, who, from
their earliest history, worshipped freedom
aud independence. They loved their uative
glens aud mountains, and they loved them
still. (Applause.) He dwelt in emphatic
lauguage on the usurpations and tyranny of
the English rule iu Ireland. The English in
tlie past as well as now were human butch
ers or brutal and unrelenting tyrants; and
in this connection, to support his assertions,
tic read au extract from the pen of the King
of Ulster in 132!). But, notwithstanding the
tyranny and injustice, Ireland was not yet
devoured. (Loud applause.) Her heart
still throbbed with au irresistiole impulse of
unconquerable louging for freedom and a
lmte, hitler, deep aud unappeasable, uutil it
had avenged her centuries of wrong. (En
thusiastic cheering.) Tlie spirit of tlie Eiig
lisli government towards Ireland was sub
stantially’ the same under Victoria as it was
with Elizabeth aud George the Fourth, the
first gentleman and the first blackguard in all
Europe. (Laughter.) The speaker alluded
to tue statement ot the New York corres
pondent of the London Times, that tlie num
bers of Irish emigrants were so great that it
was unsale to walk Broadway, and proceed
ed to Qompliment Archbishop McCloskt-y,
who. ire believed, was desliutd tri ho one of
the brightest ornaments of tlie church in tliii
or any oilier country. He knew the church’s
place aud where to keep it, and he would not
he forgotten iu tlie distant hereafter by his
Irish co-religionists, when there would be a
black mark against the memory of many—
(Cheers.) Tne London Cockney- was apt to
'describe the Irishman as a monster, hut he
had turned up in very unexpected times and
places to wreak liis vengeance on her
aud her minions. (Applause ) May God
grant, said the lecturer, when lie strikes the
power of his arm will lie multiplied by six
times six, aud as the blow descends muy the
memory of the wrongs of seven hundred
years drive it home to the heart of the im
placable foe ofhis country. (Loud and pro
longed cheering.) He warned the Ameri
can people'against the glaring falsehoods of
British newspapers, auu the Irish press in the
Interest of England were just as bad. The
American press should'give extracts from
ttie Irish People, but he understood from the
ue.vs to-day that that journal was suppress
ed. Still, there was a power behind the Peo
ple that still existed, and would exist. (Ap
plause.)l ■ The English government perhaps
thought that iu seizing that paper it had de
stroyed the right arm of the power of the Fe
nian movement, btu they would bnve to
seize every man and build more jails, before
the Irish people would be destroyed. The
Dublin Irishman partially supported tbe
cause of the Fenians, but the speaker stig
matized the Cork Examiner, which did the
dirty work of the English government. The
lecturer theu dwelt upuu tiie clerical tutelage
ofeetruin reverend gentlemen who discoun
tenanced the Feniau movement. There were
good reasons why a political movement
should not be identified with the church, but
he maintained that the liberation of Ireland
was not a matter That called for the Pope's
interference. The freedom of Ireland con
cerned the Irish nation aud the Irish people
of every creed, precisely'as the independence
of America was A blessing valued aud shared
by ail sects alike. (Applause.) He hud no
doubt when the independence of Ireland was
achieved, there would be Te Heums in Rome
as well as in Dublin for the success of their
arms. When their souls needed comfort they
sent for the priest; but when they were rob
bed and enslaved they (the people) used the
means which God and nature gave them to
Tight themselvs. That was the doctrine of men
who were fit to enjoy' freedom, and it was
the doctrine of (lie Fenians. If t hat was a crime
he was willing to abide the consequences of
it- The time bad come when the chains
that bound Ireland In the slaviaJF yoke of
foreign despotism should be broken. The
reason why the revolutionary movement in
1780 did not meet with the same success as
in America and Greece was because of tbe
want of true patriotism in the leaders, who
were aristocrats. The masses of the Irish
people were thus taught that if ever they ex
pected to wiu their .independence they must
depend upon themselves alone. (Applause.)
The tide upon which tbe Feuian9 expected to
lloal the bark of Irish independence was the
great power and ability of the Irish-Ameri
eau element, and the sterling common sense
and practical patriotism ol the masses in
Ireland to-day. There were four millions of
Irish exiles in America, who, though they
wotshipped at the shrine of American inde
pendence, wete warmly interested in their
native laud. Irishmen in America were the
peers of the best and bravest in power,
wealth aud intelligence, and in dying they
would leave their vengeance ns a legacy to
their children; and, no matter where scat
tered, England would find an undying and
relentless toe in every quarter ot the globe in
which an Irishman lived. He asked was
Ireland to remain forever a degraded and
impoverished nationality ? (Loud cries ot
“No! No! ') Was there an Irishman who
professed the slightest respect lor bis country
so stupid or bolu as to assert that it the peo
ple of Ireland were united they could not
win their independence ? Why should Irish
men stand aloof from the Fenian Brother
hood aud ref use to assist with their counsel
and theif means the men who were enlisted
in the holiest cause that tongue or sword
ever engaged in? He criticised the inactivity
of certain men who in limes past Bounded the
clarion of her liberty, but who now stood
aloof from tlwFcnians. Some asserted that the
American government would kick the Fe
nean Brotherhood into- the gutter. He would
teiiauch people that the only government that

would be the Irish republic whose agents
were here. If KugUtid kept on proclaiming
counties aud arresting people w ilbout shadow
ot law, lie thought if a state of war existed
tlie Un’tcd States would carry out the law of
nations ns laid down by England when it
granted the South belligerent rights. This
would be claimed as a right by the American
government when the proper time arrived
The question would come before them in
such a stiape that tlie right would he granted,
when the blockade would be rim and the
Irish republican loan would he announced,
which Would soon be ready for deliver}’. It
was asserted that tlie Feniaus would cast
their influence with oilier of the great polit
ical parlies, which the orator proclaimed to
be a falsehood ; hut he trusted that fraternity
would be found cn the side best carulated to
protect the Union. (Applause.) He spoke
of the businesslike manna’ in wbicli tbe affairs
of the brotherhood were managed, and said
the machinery was as perfec' as tbe circum
stances would permit it to be. working in
harmony with tbeir friends at borne, wbo
would one day and at tbe proper lime show
tbe mettle aud power of Irish hearts. He
advised no precipitate action ; lot Irish inde
pendence wa9 a boon worth waiting and woi k
ing for; for if they took the necessary
time to strengthen tbeir movements British
dominion could be expelled from the soil of
Ireland just as surely as the stars were gleam
ing in the heavens. In conclusion he dwelt
in n humorous strain upon the recent exhibi
tions of fear on the part of the British gov
ernment, denounced the spies from across the
water who were watching the Feniau head
quarters, and eloquently appealed to every
irishman to either join the brotherhood or
furnish means to enable others to fight for tbe
independence of Ireland. The orator was
londcd by applauded on resuming bis sea.t
In response to vociferous calls Colonel
O'Mahoney made a lew remarks. He said
that there were no other means proposed
whereby to redeem In land but those sug
gested by the Fenian Brotherhood, ami he
asked why should not every Irish patriot co
operate with them? H urged his brethren
to be bold, brave and persevering, and not
to shriek from their brothers in Ireland
in this the hour of tbeir trial. If the
Feniau Brotherhood were united in.action,
in inoveiueui and iu soul they would defy
and triumph over all the efforts of tbeir Eug-'
li-li enemies. He proposed three cheers for
Old Ireland, for tbe land of their adoption
and for die orator of the evening, all of
which \qgie given with an Irish enthusiasm.
Mr. John Hogan, of St Louis, an ardent
friend of the Feniau movement, was intro
duced, nnd in an earnest and thrilling ad
dress spoke of tbe capacity of Irishmen for
self-government aud whit they had accom
plished in America, filling as they did the
the most responsible and honorable position
in commercial, professional and political
The audience then separated, giving vent
as they left the halt to their enthusiasm and
approbation of tlie sentiments uttered by the
speakers in the most demonstrative manner.
THE EPISCOPAL DIOCESAN
Prospective Union of the Southern Church
—Plans Invited for its Accomplishment
—lmportant Letter from the Bishop of
[From the Sew York World.]
The convention of the Episcopal Church
of the diocese, which will commence to-day
at St. Jolui’s chapel; Varick street, promises
to be one of the most important iu tlie eccle
siastical history of New Yo>k. It will take
preliminary cognizance of the principal sub
jects to be discussed at the triennial conven
tion, and its action will doubtless have con
slderable influence with that body.
UNION .WITH THE SOUTHERN CHURCH.
The address to be delivered by Bishop Pot
ter on the occasion has already been pre
pared. As hitherto, it will form one of the
leading features ot the session. The few
reverend gentlemen who have been privi
leged to peruse the address in advance of its
delivery, declare that it heartily indorses tbe
reception of the Southern Church, and re
commends the fullest exercise of fraternal
love toward the Episcopalians of the late
Confederate Stßtes. The Bishop is said to
lavor a proposition that the Clergy should
present the most feasible plans for re-uniting
the Church, North and South, in order to fur
nish every facility for tbe settlement of tlie
questions involved, by the triennial bod}’.
The address recommends this course
IMI'OKTANT . LETTER FROM THE BISHOP OF
It may be stated here parenthetically that
Bishop Potter recently received a letter from
the Bishop of Georgia, who is regarded as
the leader ot the Southern Church. The let
ter, which has not been published, tavots
the appointment of a southern and northorn
committee of churchmen, to confer on some
plau of unity to be presented, preparatory to
the final action of the’trienoml convention.
As yet, however, there are no indications
that this suggestion will be adopted; ns
tbe Northern Church generally take the
ground that the Southern Church must he
treated not as schismatics but as absentees.
But the episcopal acts under the confederate
regime, will cause but little controversy.
BISHOP POTTER’S ADDRESS —THE, DIVISION Or
It is further stated, in regard to Bishop
Potter’s forthcoming address, that it opposes
the proposed division of the diocese, as liith
tc; unless a great majority of the clergy
should not only favor hut urce it. It repeats
the bishop’s ability to attend to the vast re
gion under his charge ; and avers that it is
impolitic at this time to make any change.
The large number of episcopal acts of the
dioceseun, and his extended tour to the
churches, is cited In proof of the tact.
THE tow CHCRCH CLERGY
The address, our informant states, also
contains a lengthy allusion to the cause which
led Bishop Potter to issue his pastoral, which
was first printed in The World ; aud it fur
ther refers to the answers which it called
forth ftom some of the Low Church divines.
It expresses the belief of the bishop that his
action has not only the approval ot the cler
gy of this diocese, but of every other
throughout the country. The bishop's un
willingness to deni harshly with tbe refrac
tory ministers, and the necessity of disci
pline on a repetition of the aileged violatk ns
of tbe ciDOD, in regard to mm-Episcopai
clergyman, also form a part, of the address.
These are the leading topics of the address.
A COMPLAINT TO BE MADE AO AIN ST TUE REV. 8.
H. TYNG, JR.
Some of the leading clergy state that the
necessary measures have been taken to pre
fer a formal complaint against tbe Rev. S.
H. Tyng, Jr., for allowing a uou-Episcopal
minister to preach iu his church a week since,
in alleged defiance of the pastoral. The
High Ctiurch cle.rgy, in general, declare that
the bishop should ungown Mr. Tyng for the
act. The bishop, however, is known to be
hostile to proceeding to any such extremity.
But he is propelled by a High Church force,
which he is said to be unable to resist.
THE GEORGIAN METHODISTS TO UNITE WITH THE
It may be here staled that many of tbe
leading Methodist divines of Georgia have,
with the approval of their Congregations,
made overtures to the Episcopal Church of
that State, atxl some of the clerical officers
ot the triennial convention, to unite with the
Episcopal Church. Tbeir hostility to north
ern Methodism, and Its incidental hatred of i
tbe South in yeara past, ia said to be the ;
prime motive of the act.

Relief for Southern Cotton Holder* .
The Washington correspondence of the
New York Herald, of the 28th, has the fol
lowing, of great interest to cotton holders:
The Secretary of the Treasury and the
Commissioner oi’lnternal Revenue have now,
under consideration, a circular, wbicli will be
issued iu a day or two, to be directed to the
government Tax Collectors, with a view if
relieving the holders of cotton in the South
ern States. It is found that these cotton hol
ders are generally unable to raise the money
to pay the immense tax, etc., required by tlie
act of July 2, 18G4, to lie paid before ship
ment to tbe Government agent, iu the ncat-
I est locality or district in which the cotton
! may be found, nnd it is also found impracti
; cable and sometimes impossible for these
1 cotton owners to come North and obtain the
requisite funds by hypothecating their staple.
The law ns heretofore, construed, seemed to
j present an unsurmouutable obstacle to the
: shipment of Cotton to the Northern ports be
fore tlie government assessments should be
paid, but the Secretary of the Treasury with
the aid of the Commissioner of Internal
Revenue, has, it is believed, discovered a
piau by which owners may ship their cotton
to Northern markets and pay tlie govern
ment charges in those ports. If this plan be
carried out, it will release and send to the
Northern markets in immense amouut of
property which is now tied np in the South
by reason of tlie former strict and technical
1 construction of the law.
