The high wind which prevailed at the time fanned the flames, and in a few minutes after the fire occurred every part of the house was on fire, and Mr. and Mrs. Wood, together with their two sons and three daughters, perished in the flames, and in the presence of the thousands there assembled, who were ready and willing to save them from an awful death, had there been any means of doing it. Another family, who occupied the lower part of the house, escaped with their lives, but not until one or two of them had been badly burned.--The servant girl of the unfortunate family also escaped uninjured. The policemen and Fire-Marshal Baker were quickly on the ground, and rendered every aid in their power. After the fire was quite subdued, the charred and unrecognizable remains of Mr. and Mrs. Wood, and their four children, were removed from the ruins and conveyed to the Station-House.

l reply to Reverdy Johnson, which appeared in yesterday's Baltimore Sun. It is worth its weight in solid gold, and if every voter in Virginia could have a copy of it, the old State would come out right. Our conservative men cling desperately to the dead corpse of the Union, forgetting that Constitutional liberty is worth all the Unions past or to come. Johnson is doing great harm to Maryland and the South. He was in the Senate again yesterday in close confab with the British coercionist, Baker. He is playing high for the Attorney General's place. I certainly meant no offence to respectable colored gentlemen when I stated that Hamlin was a mulatto. My statement came from an entirely reliable source. Gov. Crittenden, I learn, is more and more dissatisfied with Seward's speech. It is gratifying to know that Charleston is three-eighths of a mile beyond the range of the best shell-throwing gun in Fort Sumter. So many Southern members have gone home or ceased to vo
