New York , August 19 , 1 a. m.
The Spanish bull-tight announced to
take place yesterday in the Central
Park arena , terminated like its prede-
rosaor of a few weeks ago , in a ridicu
lous failure. Before the spectacle
began an officer seized the arena on a
trespats warrant , and turned every
living creature , except the Texas
toera , out of the building and locked
the doors. Finally , th-3 projector of
the scheme p > id the month's rent due ,
whereupon the place was attached by
a deputy sheriff , but ho kindly con
sented to let the unsanguiuary con
flict proceed , provided Bergh did not
interfere. Bergh was there , and ap
peared delighted with the playfulness
and amiability of the horned animals.
About 150 spectators were present ,
including dead-heads from the sher
iff's and marshal's office : . The tor-
rerios , clad in gorgeous attire , stalked
into the arena. The band struck up
a lively air , and Alexa Bovina was let
loose. He charged on a torreriowho
quickly scaled the fence ; the brutO
followed , and Senor Pastho , manager ,
happening to be in the way , started
for him , but the Senor scrambled to a
place of safety. Seven steers were
brought in succession upon the field ,
and occasionally , to relieve the mo
notony , a rosette would "be placed by
a torrerio upon the creature's fore
head. None of the animals showed
au excessive quality of viciousness ,
but the torrenos' remarkable ability
in climbing the fence to avoid being
tossed , was the principal feature of
the affair , for as a bull-fight it was an

SAN FRANCISCO , August 18,4 p. m.
The terrible scenes of last year have
again been enacted el Eureka , Ne
vada. A terrible conflagration has
visited the town and laid it in ashes.
The fire started at an early hour this
morning in a small frame building.
A violent wind which was blowing at
the time fanned the fhmes which
quickly spread to the neighboring
dwellings and stores. All efforts to
stay the course of the conflagration
were unavailing. The whirlwind of
fire swept up the streets and gulches ,
laying the whole city under the fiery
ban. The confusion and tumult was
very great. There was little time for
the inhabitants to remove their goods ,
and quantities of merchandise waa ta
ken info the street ! ) only to be des
troyed by the rapid advance of the
flames. Several lives ara believed to
have been lost. The loss of properly
will reach § 1,000,000. The fire went
over the aarao territory destroyed by
the conflagration of last year. Many
families are destitute.

PEORIA , III. , August 18 4 p. m.
A few days ago a dispatch announced
the arrest of a man named Clarke , of
St. Louis , for counterfeiting. It
seems thit ho belonged to a well-or
ganized gang that have lived and flour
ished in and around this city
for years. Yesterday the authorities
collared two of the Ran nanwd Mir-
tin and Collender. The former is a
well-to-do farmer , and resides about
five miles from the city. Ho has
been looked upon as a hard-working ,
but the evidence
straight-forward man ,
dence against him ia conclusive. The
latter individual. Dr. Collentler , was
formerly a member of the city council
of this city , and waa at o-ie tlrao well-
off , but through crooked whisky lost
it all. Since his arrest he haa com-

The government has also captured the
plates and die from which the $10

turned up in St. Louis , through the
working of the secret police. Other

LONDON , August 19 , 1 a. m.
The authorities are in a etate of per
fect and pitiful consternation in con
sequence of the alleged discovery of a
plot to blow up the railway tunnel
and barracks. The military and con
stabulary are much alarmed , although
government officials pretend to make
light of the discovery , but there is no
doubt but what they are in a state of
greit alarm and apprehension. Some
of the precautions which are taken
are ridiculously absurd. Even news
paper reporters in the discharge of
their duties are marched between a
file of soldiers nnd are watched as
closely as if they were Fenian prison
ers in digraco.
Right Hrm. William E. Forsler ,
