Hotels burnt — loss of Life. Buffalo, N. Y., Nov. 10. --A fire broke out at one o'clock this morning in the kitchen of the Clarendon Hotel, and rapidly spreading, destroyed the main building situated on the corner of Main and South Division streets, and the wing extending through to Washington street. The wing on South Division street was saved. H. Q. Chamberlain, oyster dealer, jumped from the fourth story and was almost instantly killed. Mr. Carland, of the firm of Carland &Beirne, clothiers, was burned to death. The building was owned by Orson Phelps, and valued at $90,000, upon which there is an insurance of $40,000 in New York and New England companies. The furniture, owned by Mr. Hodges, of the American Hotel, and Mr. Bickford, proprietor of the Clarendon, was mostly destroyed. Loss on furniture about $9,000; fully insured. Mr. H. Peabody, druggist, loses about $3,000 above his insurance.-- Minor losses will make the total loss not far from $120,000, upon whic
street side, to the payment below, by which he was so horribly crushed and mangled that, having been removed to Mathews' drug store, he died, after lingering in unspeakable agony for about half an hour. It is probable that he lost his presence of mind in consequence of excitement and terror, as he was spoken to by those below, and told to wait a few moments and a ladder would be raised, by which he might safely reach the ground. William A. Carland, of the well-known firm of Carland & Beirne, of "Gothic Hall, " also lost his life. Two women employed in the hotel, Bridget Mulcahey, cook, and Ann McAulay, chambermaid, are also set down among the lost, as their friends, after diligent search and inquiry, have been unable to discover any traces of them. A woman named Alice White, also one of the employees, was rescued by a fireman. She was at the window of the rear portion of the building, on Washington street, and Mr. G. mounted a ladder which had been raised, and, surrounde
Gen. Wisy's brigade. --The Greenbrier Era alludes to the arrival at Lewisburg of Gen. Henry A. Wise, attended by the Richmond Blues and Caskle's Rangers, and says: Whilst encamped at the Fair Grounds, they were joined by the white Sulphur Rifles, Capt. Morris, and the Monroe Sharp Shooters, Capt. Beirne, which companies were mustered into the service of the Confederate States, for 12 months, and all took up their march for the West on Tuesday. Capt. Taylor's company of Frankford Rifles, and two pieces of Artillery, under the command of Capt. Buckholtz, left Wednesday for the same destination. The Rockingham Cavalry have arrived, and are now in camp. We understand they will follow in a short time. Besides these, there are four companies in Monroe, and two in this county, which will join him in the Kanawha Valley. The soldiers were much pleased with their sojourn amongst us, and, we have no doubt, will remember gratefully the kindness extended by our citizens, and especi
From Kanawha. --The editor of the Lewisburg Chronicle publishes some facts from a letter dated Charleston, Kanawha county, June 30: Gen. Wise was then in Charleston, and Capt. O. J. Wise's company, the Richmond Blues, left Charleston about 10 o'clock at night, June 29th, for Gilmer county, in consequence of having learned that about 100 of the enemy had crossed over and were committing depredations. Capt. Brock's Rockingham Cavalry and Capt. Beirne's Monroe Rifles had also left, but were expected to return in a few days. One of the Monroe Company died on the 29th from measles; he exposed himself imprudently during his sickness. A company of Riflemen arrived on the 30th from Roane county, with three prisoners; one of them a delegate to the Wheeling Convention, and the others had violated the persons of two ladies. The people were talking of lynching them, but the writer thought they would be left in the hands of the legal tribunals. So far as the writer can judge from w
they did of grain. Mr. Kelley was killing hogs as they came up, and they found a scaffold filled with fat hogs already butchered to their hand, and these they helped themselves to at once. They took all of Mr. Kelley's horses and mules, his wagon, a negro boy, and some of his gearing, wantonly cutting up that belonging to his carriage and all that they did not carry off. Gen. Averill, however, put a guard be fore the entrances to the houses and kept the men from intruding into them. Mr. Beirne was treated with singular brutality. His houses were ransacked — his stores pillaged — all his meat (several thousand pounds) taken — all his liquors and wines appropriated by the plundering soldiery — His watch violently taken from his person — all his horses carried off. His place was well stripped of all that the Yankees desired or could convey away. Continuing their march rapidly, they picked up several horses at Kylets, and appropriated the most of Mr. Kyle's grain. His negr
