THE CONFLAGRATION AT HAMBURG. J It appears that the Senate gave orders to blow up some I houses in order to sthp- the progress of the fire. Some Knglish nn-rcharits belonging to an English machine manufactory were selected as the fittest persons to per- torm this duty. They were joined by some English sailois who volunteered their services. Their object was miscon- strufd by the peop e into a hostile attack on their houses. It is stated that one of the workmen employed by the en- gineers was supposed to be plundering. The workmen and the sailors were then attacked, driven away, and it is I feared that some of tliem were seriously injured, if not kilied. It is evident, from the proclamation issued, that the occurrence has been a source of deep sorrow to the authorities. Her Majesty has presented for the relief of the suffer- ers from the Bre at Hamburgh, .t2oo. Prince Albert iClOO. The persons deprived of homes are about 30,000. By Friday's steamer, j £ 10,000 subscribed by public com- panies, merchants, bankers and others, in London, were sent over to relieve the pressing necessities of the suffer- ers. The loss is estimated at one hundred miiiions of marcs banco or (j £ 7,000,0(l0), and the destruction of com- merce for many years to come. The result cannot be loreseen.. HAMBURO, MAY fo.-Tliis morning eighteen bodies were found in one cellar, and twenty under the ruins of another house. Some of our countrymen were mrst zea- lous in their exertions, and great praise is due to Mr. Lindlay, the engineer, Mr. Giles, railway engineer, and Mr. Thomson. Colonel Stockfleth, of the Burgher Guard, was indefatigable, and deserves the thanks of every citizen. No interruption to commerce will take place, but every assistance will be rendered to the second- class merchants by the bankers and capitalists, at the head of whom stands that good and excellent man Salo- mon Heine, a patriot to his country, and a father to the helpless. Still the wants of the pem>le are greatâgreater than the means that the united efforts of our rich can g ive, and it is therefore on the British nation that all eyes rc-t.
