It is fun to watch the opposition

to fasten the blame on each other. Th
New York Tribune, which may be called
from the Liberal wing, now, we suppose,
says it is all ths old Democrats fault that
Greeley was beat, and plainly states that
the Liberal strength was neutralized by
Democrats who would not cat crow while
they could get $5 to $20 each, for not
eating it. Wise folks these Democrats
must be, easy bought, according to the
Tribune, for it says, "nothing purcbasa-

Democratic sheet goes for the Liberal
this way ; "There was next to no Liberal
rank and file in the fighte, xcept in 111.,
and Ohio the Liberal masses were dis
astrously few." It calls the Liberal
leaders, such as Schurz, Trumbull and
Sumner, "Insurgent Chiefs,"' and says
the Democratic allies came, but the Re
publican followers, whose support they
should have had, came not. Thus each
accuses the other of being the lame
duck, and the unkindest cut of all the
Republican also says: "Mr. Sumner,
with 05,000 majority against him in his

overshadowing hiui will sink into the un

"'The Baltimore convention did not

By reference to our telegraphic col

period has devastated portions of our
country. The Portland fire was followed
by that of Chicago, almost eimultane

lumber regions of the lakes ; and now
this one at Boston, which although not
equal in extent to that of Chicago, has
consumed more valuable property.
Th portion burned contained some of
the finest blocks of stores aud ware
houses to be found on the continent.
The amount of property destroyed is
differently , estimated, but will probably
come in the neighborhood of one hun

"Our chief reliance for the future de

and had we been tree from the lanitnany

great body of the party was in no way

Thet. Louis Goisays: The great
fire enforces fresh attention to means of
protection against such fearful disaster.
The subject now assumes startling mo
ment. The lacts by which the Chicago
horror was explained a high wind,
flames beginning in a frame tenement
quarter, aud a general insubstantiaiity or
structure these cannot ue anegeu, as
they were in the case of Chicago. No
wind was stirring. The flames started
in a massive graiute-built quarter and m
Ko-oalled fire-nroof blocks. The vast
amount of combustibles in the burning
building heated it so intensely and blaz
ed from the roof so tremendously that
the adjoining buildings caught at the
roofs, lusher than the hremen couta
work with effect, and in this way the
destruction raged. Ingenuity must now
devise better security against the con
flagration of cities.
The papers ar full of the great fires.
The Insurance Co.'s are badly demoral

matter, stating, that as Chicago has
been largely rebuilt by the aid ot Boston
capital, which will now have to bejwith
drawn, the result will be fatal to
Chicago and the business of the north

that it will seriously disarrange all busi
