FIRE AT PALMYRA - On Saturday night last a fire broke out in the drug store of James K. SEXTON, of Palmyra, which destroyed nearly the whole stock of goods, although the main building was saved through the active exertions of the Fire Department. Mr. SEXTON'S loss is perhaps $3,500; insurance $2,500. His books and valuable papers were saved by the daring of two young men who plunged into the flames and smoke, and brought out a desk containing them.

ARREST OF A SUPPOSED PIRATE
A Scotchman named William BROHDY was arrested at St. Louis on the 17th instant, on suspicion of having been a pirate. From the statement of the matter in the papers of that city, it does not appear that there is any knowledge of information inculpating the man except his own stories, which are desperate and reckless enough. The New Era says:
From the testimony seduced, which amounts to a mere boast on the prisoner's part, it appears that some years since he failed in one of the back counties of England and went to Liverpool; from whence he sailed on board a privateer to the West Indies. After making one or two cruises in the capacity of seaman, he ran away from the privateer and went on board a pirate ship, upon which vessel he remained until some four years since, when he succeeded in getting on board a merchant ship bound home, and came to the United States. During his stay on land, which was short, he was in Cincinnati, Louisville, and other towns on the Ohio.
He soon returned to the seaboard, and by means which are not stated, got on board another piratical vessel called "Black Rambler," which vessel was stranded on the coast of Florida, the crew escaping in the long boat to a sand beach, from whence they were taken off by a vessel passing and conveyed to New Orleans as a castaway crew. When on the Black Rambler he has repeatedly spoken of having captured an American vessel (name not recollected) on which there were a number of passengers, all of which were murdered and thrown into the sea. From New Orleans he came to the city, and for the past two years has been having in this place and vicinity. -
The Black Rambler is the only vessel of which the name is given, he, when boasting, being very cautious about mentioning names and dates.-
BROHDY is a man apparently forty years of age, with muscular developments seldom equalled; and a countenance which in??entes nerve and ???? commit any deed — no matter how dark and damning in its nature. Before the Justice he seemed quite unconcerned and was disproved to make jest out of what may yet lead to his execution.
A FEMALE FARMER
The second premium for the best cultivated farm in Litchfield Co., Ct., was awarded the past season to Mrs. Vesta HAWKINS, of Watertown. — The farm contains 160 acres. It has been under Mrs. H's management for the last ten years. The committee of examination say: "It is divided the present season into twenty-two acres of meadow, three and a half of corn, six of oats, one and a half of rye, two of buckwheat, a half acre of potatoes, seven acres of woodland, and the residue of pasture land. The produce of the farm for the present season is estimated as follows: Fifty tons of hay, two hundred bushels of corn, one hundred and thirty-three pecks of oats, one hundred and fifty bushels of potatoes. The stock kept on it this season consists of twenty-six head, including six calves raised this season, two horses and fifty-six sheep. This farm is conveniently laid out into small fields, the fences mostly of rails, all in good repair, and together with the buildings, presents a neat and tidy appearance." --(Cultivator.)
GONE - A young lady named Miss L***** R*****, went to a party on Sunday night, and her parents being of that sort who hold an early bed a cardinal virtue, scolded the young lady pretty harshly when she returned home at an hour of the night that was verging upon the morn. Miss L***** went to bed a crying, as the story goes and made threats of elopement. She was as good as her word — for on the following morning, when called to breakfast, she didn't come! Her paternal parent went to her room, but found it empty; the window up, and a ladder against the wall on the outside. As it was evident; she did not place the ladder there herself, it is suspected that her escape was pre-planned, and that a certain young gentleman, who hasn't been seen for a day or two, is in the secret. What adds to the romance of this affair, the mysterious disappearance of about one hundred and fifty dollars of the father's money, and nothing left but the ladder — the "Ladder of Love" - as collateral security - (Cin. Com.)
SUDDEN DEATH - Dr. Ezekiel WEBB died very suddenly Friday forenoon about 11 o'clock, at Congress Hall. He had been in feeble health for some time, and on Wednesday night was attacked with severe pains. On Thursday, however, he was quite well again. About 11 o'clock yesterday, his daughter, who was engaged in writing to some friends, asked what she should say ailed him. - He replied that she might tell them he was attacked with a spasm of the heart. The daughter had not got out of the room when he sprang from the bed into the centre of the room, and in a few minutes expired.
Dr. W., was 73 years of age, and formerly resided at Mobile, Alabama, but had lived in this city for the past six or eight months with his wife and daughter. Mrs. W. has friends and relatives residing in Springfield, Mass.
DEATH FROM DROWNING - Coroner STONE was Thursday called to hold an inquest upon the body of an Irishman named Timothy DOLAN who was found drowned in Brown's Race. From the testimony before the jury, it appeared that he resided on the Corner of Brown's Alley and Fifth street, and that about 9 o'clock on Monday evening, he left the house for the purpose of attending a "wake" on Mortimer street, where his wife had already gone, since which time he had not been seen. On drawing off the water from the Race, for another purpose, yesterday morning, his body was found. Verdict of the Coroner's Jury, "Death from accidental drowning while in a state of intoxication."
THE ARSON CASE - The testimony in the case of Thomas MORAN, indicated for setting fire to his store on Exchange street, some time since, was closed on Friday afternoon, and after able addresses from the counsel engaged, the case was submitted to the jury. They were unable to agree, however, and were discharged. It is said that they stood 8 for conviction and 4 for acquittal.
DEATH FROM A DISSECTING WOUND - Dr. GREEN died at West Newton, Pennsylvania, from poisonous bumor supposed to have been caught from a slight wound by the dissecting knife.
SUICIDE - Mr. Fulton PERKINS, formerly proprietor of the Montreal Times, committed suicide on Wednesday last, by cutting his throat with a razor, during a fit of temporary insanity.
ELOPEMENT EXTRAORDINARY - Edwin AUSTEN, of Chester, Mass., after procuring a horse and wagon from Joseph LARES, of that place, under pretence of going a journey of 20 miles, was joined by Mrs. WILCOX, wife of Edwin WILCOX of Chester, and her two children, with whom he instantly made tracks for this city. At Bridgeport, their horse, after being driven upward of 100 miles without proper rest and nourishment, became too much exhausted to convey the party further, whereupon AUSTEN and his paramour left the horse and wagon at Bridgeport, and continued their journey hither in the boat. In the meantime, the injured husband followed their tracks, and on his arrival here, found his children, wife, and ner seducer boarding in style at the Howard House, where constable RUE arrested AUSTEN on a charge of constructive grand larceny, in running off with the horse and wagon. — Justin OSBORN committed him to prison for examination. — (N. Y. Tribune)
THE MURDER OF MR. MATHEWS
We noticed, a few days ago, that a Mr. MATHEWS was found murdered at St. Louis, supposedly a companion, named A. W. BALDWIN. The People's Organ gives the following account of the occurrence:
When the Laciede arrived at the landing, Mr. MATHEWS seemed very cautious of his baggage, and would not entrust it to the porter, but carried it to the hotel himself. As soon as he arrived at the house, his name and that of BALDWIN was registered, and they called for a room, and took their baggage, consisting of one small leather trunk, (very heavy,) and a small pair of saddle bags. They appeared at supper together, and soon after walked out, Mr. MATHEWS observing to Mr. VAN COURT that he was going to take the key of his room with him. This was between ? and 7 o'clock. About half past seven o'clock, BALDWIN returned to the hotel, went to the office and asked for his bill, observing that he wished to go out in the Jefferson stage at one o'clock in the morning, and would pay his bill. The clerk ask ?? him if Mr. MATHEWS was going also, and if he would settle both bills? He answered in the affirmative, and accordingly paid both bills. BALDWIN then asked for the key of their room, and when told that Mr. MATHEWS had it, he seemed very much surprised, and immediately left the hotel. At this moment it was observed that his face was much flushed and covered with sweat. In the course of half an hour, BALDWIN returned to the house and went to his room. Mr. MATHEWS was not seen after they left the house early in the evening together.
At one o'clock on Monday morning the stage called for passengers at the hotel, and the watchman of the house says that two men came out of the room assigned to BALDWIN and MATHEWS; but from what we could learn the description of neither one suits the latter. It is the opinion of many that when BALDWIN returned to the house the first time, after walking out with Mr. MATHEWS, that he had then already committed the deed; and when told that Mr. M had the key of their room, that he returned to the body, procured the key, came back and entered his room, where he remained until the stage called for him in the morning. The trunk and saddle bags above mentioned, were both gone from the room on the next morning. The whole matter is of a most extraordinary nature — but we hope that it may be sifted to the bottom, and the guilty person arrested and punished.
ANOTHER EXECUTIVE PARDON - POLLOCK, the young "Middy," who attempted to kill Mr. JEWETT, of the Commercial, by shooting three balls into him, has been pardoned by Gov. YOUNG. The Executive had better now open the prison doors, and set at large every scoundrel who may happen to be within its walls. A more disgraceful exercise of official clemency has not disgraced this State for many a day.
PARDONED - Joel WOOD, more familiarly known as "Jockey WOOD," has been pardoned out of States Prison, and arrived in town on Monday - He has been serving the State about two year.
SUICIDE OF A BRIDE - The Saratoga Sentinsay's that Mrs. Rachael VENDERMAKER, 20 years of age, and married only three weeks, cut her throat with a razor on the 29th ult.

He was engaged with several others in chopping wood, when he received an injury from the falling timber, which fractured the thigh bone three inches above the knee, lacerating the skin, muscles, nerves, and veins, and tore across the main artery of the thigh, permitting the blood to flow in streams from the mangled vessels. So freely did it pour out; that he died in a few hours, with comparatively but a drop of blood in his veins. The limb was amputated, while the patient was under the influence of chloroform, but he survived the operation but a short time.
