St ATI’s OK THE Affair—A Serums: of
Tin: Matter rnoM the Beo.’n-xino.—
TJiiF difficulty, which now scorns to have
reached a remit without the occurrence
of a duel, lias attracted public attention
for some time, and as a public matter we
shall try' to give a anceinct account of it
from tho beginning, coming down to the
present moment. We shall give wliat
wo understand to be fact), and shall
state nothing that can bo construed
into criticism or un expression
of opinion upon the course and
conduct «f any of the parties. Nearly
two months since tho first rumors of a
dbel wore put afloat, and it wru soon as
certained that th" parties were on their
way to some point in Florida. At Neal’s
Landing, on the ChMtahoochno river, all
♦ho parties arrived. Phillips. Waddell and
their friend*. Pi-tolc. muskets and
swords were the weapons on hand. .A
demand for retraction was made, and the
Waddell party asked for forty-six doy3 to
/tunic answer, to which they were en
titled under the eo A <'. At the expiration
of this time tho Phillips party again re
paired to Neal’s Landing. The Waddell
party hail not arrived, ro they waited
there nincty-wx hours, aundiag notice to
Waddell at hi* rosideno<> that they would
do so. At ■ he cxplri tiou of thl i tint-* they
tletermined upon waiting 30 hours longer,
ahd did so. The other party not appear
ing, Phillips and his friends then returned
np the river, directing tlio captain to Imil
the down lioat to ascertain if Waddell was
altoard. He was not. but a note from hint
stating that Mr. Holland -wits “sick, and
ho would thew fore not he "t Neal’s Lnnd-
iag.” (Mr. Holland was .acting for Wnd-
t'td! in the stead of Hooper, who had de
clined to act further in the matter).
When they reached Seal's St ition. where
Waddell resided, an armed party got on
hoc pi the train, which the Phillips partv
hail taken when they left the boat. All
proceeded to Columbus, where Major
Waddell had before arrived. The Phil
lips party, wlio had left their arm* in Al
abama to nvoid any violation of Georgia
law, went to a hotel. Major Waddell and
frionds'were at another. The Mayor in
formed Mr. Phillips’friends if an attempt

the Jews, failed to see and acknowledge
his holy and spiritual visit to the earth—
He being visible only to Christian eyes.
He further claims that as Christ by his
first coming added the New Testament

in this his second visit, addod some
1,000 pages to Holy Writ—which addi
tion this strange old roan claimed to have,
and proceeded to read a chapter. Upon
being asked to read and explain the last
verse of Revelations, he replied that a
curse was pronounced against any man
who should take from or add to tlic Holy-

bad done it by inspiration, and God cer

2,500 people who occupied the buildings
are homeless, and nearly all lost every

The Alleged Bond Forgers.
Jos. J. Tates and James Johnson, ar
rested for complicity in the forgery of the
Central Railroad bonds, were again before
ing adjoining on the south, and also to
the factory of Frey, Walpot & Co., in the
rear of the theatre.
The entire fire department was vigor
ously at work, but all their effort* to
save tho theatre were unavailing. Shortly
after 3 o’clock the roof fell in, and soon
only tho hare walls were left standing.
The theatre and soma adjoining prop-
erty were purchased three years ago by
John T. Ford, Manager, for >100,000.
The damage by firo will reach ubout
$75,000. on which there is an insurance
of $40,000, principally in city companies.
The St. Nicholas Hotel adjoining the
theatre on the north, a large four-«tory
building, W. B. W. Earl, proprietor, is
patAmzed almost exclusively by actors
and actresses performing at the Holiday
and Front street theatres and the Balti
more Opera House, about fifty of whom
were in the building at the timoof thefire.
The rear portion of the fourth story was
antirely burned out and all the lower
floors deluged with water. Many of the
guest; were forced to escape with noth
ing on but their night clothes.
Some of the actresses lost their war
drobes, watches, money, jewelry, etc.
But many of them gyuyeoded in saving
their affects, which, with the furniture of
the hotel that was rescued from the
dames, was piled in the streets.
Mr. Earl estimates his loss at about
$20,000 and gives his insurance as follows:
Pennsylvania, of Philadelphia. $2,500;
Franklin, of Philadelphia, $2,000; West
Chester, of New York, $2,300; German, of
Baltimore 2,500. Total insurance $10,-
000. The building was owned by Wm.
Baltimore City College adjoining on
tho south had the roof burned, the up
per floor burned and the wholo building
was damaged with water. Tho first
first floor was occupied by tho Balti
more School Commissioners and the sec
ond and third floors by the Baltimore
City College. The damage to books b/
water is estimated at $3,000. Furniture
and corpete were also damaged to the
amount of $5,000. The building was
owned by the city and was not insured.
The mattress and curled hair factory of
Frey, Walpot & Co., 2S North Gay
street in the rear of the theatre, was
owned by the firm, who estimate their
loss in stock and damages to building at
between $15,000 and $20,000; insurance
not over $8,000, divided among the
Queen’s, of London, German, of Balti
more, and Etna, of Hartford. The roof
of building No. 2 South street, adjoining
the Western Union Telegraph Company,
took fire from falling cinders and was
slightly damaged, Tho upper portion
was occupied by Flynn Charles, hatters,
who estimate their loss by water at
$3,000; insurance for $1,000. The first
floor was occupied by Diggs, cool agent,
whoso loss is trifling. A numberof other
buildings were saved by sweeping the
burning cinders from the roofs.
The loss of John T. Ford, of the Holi
day Street Theatre, will reach at least
$00,000 above the $40,000 insurance.
Tho destruction is complete and entire,
together with all the accumulations of
over 60 years. Old Holiday had stood
for 77 years without fire.

She sailed August 11th for Littleton

well and had gone south two months be
fore in two \male boats mode from tho

The captain kept a careful look out going
north and coming south, but discovered
no signs. He stopped at all the settle

of the Polaris is probably on board of a

D. L. Bkain,
, Commander, U. S. N.
The above dispatch was received to-day
from Commander Braine, commanding
the Juniata. Littleton Island is about
sixty miles north of Northumberland
Island, where the party rescued from the
Polaris supposed that they had left her.
It is a little south of the life-boat depot
of Dr. Kane in 1853. The probability is
that tho Tigress party were mistaken as
to the locality of tlicir separation from
the Polaris, and that it was really Little
ton Island instead of Northumberland
Island. It is hardly possible tliat, after
the separation, the PoLuris, in her disa
bled condition, succeeded in any way in
reaching a point sixty miles f urthcr north.
