#### 6334. PANICS, Losses by.—

It is computed

there is a dead loss at New York of

about five millions of dollars, which is reckoned

the value of all the buildings of the city: so

that if the whole town had been burned to the

ground it would have been just the measure

of the present calamity, supposing goods to

have been saved. In Boston, the dead loss is

about a million of dollars. * * * It is conjectured

that the loss in Philadelphia will be

about equal to that of Boston.—
