HOW THR FIRE ORIGINATED.
Late on Sunday evening a boy went into aBtable
on De Koven street, near the river, on the west
eide, to milk a cow, carrying with him a kerosene
lamp. This was licked over by the cow, and the
burning fluid scattered among the straw. This
was the beginning or the great fire. A single ex
tinguisher on the ground, or active works of the
jKlTce in tearing down one or two Ehanties,
would have prevented the spreading of the flames,
but the engines were waited for.
THE MOST UNFORTUNATE MAN
I Lave heard of is Ogden, brother to William B.
Ogden, whote residence waa and is on the north
Kiil where evcrvthiner is burned: for miles and
Sy canS j
, you cannot find one
miles ol beautilul residences
h f loriouB water works, vo
tingle, solitary house or building ot any Rina
except this wretched man's residence. What a
griui joke it was on Ogden ! The night of the fire
he resided in a beautiful city and among his
social neighbors. In the morning he was alone
on a desolate prairie, and hardly within 6ight of
the splendid city he supposed ne uvea in ana paiu j
taxes to. His wooden barn was saved, tod, and
his hoiscs, and after breakfast he started on his I
weary pilgrimage to tne aisiani city, mo uiu
land-marks all gone, his journey was accomplished
with difficulty. At last he found where the busi
ness part of the town had been. But if he had
been lonely before what an abject outcast was he
here, while his business friends and acquaintan
ces were exchanging the friendly grip and cheer
ful salutation of 44 Hallo, old boy! All gone?
Start anew. Did you save a shirt? When are
van o-oino- to commence to build?" &c., &c. No
kind pauper could slap him on the back and say
that. The mark of Cam was upon him and his
burden was greater than he could bear. It is
reported that he has made several incendiary at
tempts to burn it and be in the fashion ; but it
won't burn though composed entirely of wood
and as dry as tinder. It is hoped that he may
obtain relief from this extra session of tl legis
lature, and be permitted to blow the infernal
thin" into the heavens with a hundred thousand
pounds of powder. He certainly cannot endure
this thing long.
TWO DAYS AFTER THE FIRE,
The noise of the hammer, the rattle of the pick
and crow-bar, the prying out safes, the breaking
open of vaults, and the carting away of safes and
books, still goes on. iiunareus oi private uweu-
uigs on V abash ana luicnigan avenues are con
verted into offices and immense wholesale bouses.
A ulain Tjine board, little larger than one of these
Bheets of foolscap, marks the offices of firms rep
resenting millions or business. Ana yet tne men
look cheerful, sit down and write to 6ome friends
for the loan of a few thousands till the banks re-
. . a . a alll
eume, Uicn uacK to DU6incs9 again, vii ine
public records are gone. Just imagine every
deed, mortgage, judgment, recoru oi wiiis anu
probate of wills, all gone !
The Chicago lake crib is two miles from shore,
and yet the keeper bad to keep the top of the
building continually wet, to prevent it igniting
on the night of the fire.
A. T. Stewart has acted in keeping with bis
well-known character for beneficence in promptly
sending 50,000 to the Chicago sufferers. "VV ere
it not for betraying a confidence, we should add
that he took counsel whether he should not offer
25,000 ; desiring earnestly to give four times as
much, but fearing it would seem ostentatious,
and hoping to make it up some other way ; but
being assured that he might, in the emergency,
6end 50,000 without danger of offense, did so
immediately. Merchants who themselves lose
largely by this calamity seem generally to be as
prompt as any others to Bend aid.
A Chicago girl wrote to her lover in Washing
ton that he would have been surprised to see her
the morning alter the fire, " with a pair of Jim's
old pants on, one slipper, one shoe and a water
proof cloak." And she remarked, That would
make a splendid wedding suit, wouldn't it?"
We suppose this girl could never be made to be
lieve it, but that was precifely the time eho
should have been married. Hers would have
been a wedding for the mutual benefit of the
parties interested, and certainly not one for the
mere Bake of show, as sometimes happens. A
good many Chicago couples, indeed, did marry
directly alter the fire, and partly for the reason
that they didn't have any clothes to speak of.
The Chicagoans don't believe in giving up their
amusements, even if they have to witness per
formances from the ruins ol their own domiciles.
A Chicago music dealer announces the standard
operas with as much breadth of type as if all the
pianos hadn't been burned up, and there are a
hundred announcements in the Chicago papers
going to show that the fire didn't amount to
much after all, even admitting that there has
been any fire at all. In further demonstration of
Chicago's love of the luxuries and willingness to
,y for them, it is stated that the White stocking
tse Ball Club voted to disband the other day ;
but the board of trade got together and told the
boya to continue, and their existence as a club
should be guaranteed for at least one year. Truly
this is the old Chicago. '
Who were thrown into the streets, or rather onto
the prairie, are very comfortable. Thousands of
them never lived so well in their lives or were 60
comfortably clothed. If we have an open winter
there will be work enough for them to do at once
until spring on the ruins. ' Long lines of bar
racks have sprung up like magic on the vacant
places, and food and clothing and money have
flowed in generously from other cities. The
churches which were spared were immediately
converted into depositories of cast-off clothing
and food and bedding, and thither they flocked
and were clothed. Probably not more than half
of those thus burned out remained in the city at
all ; they were carried to other towns by the
various railroads free.
The New Orleans Picayune tells the following
A lady was reading to her servants an account
of the Chicago fire. The incident of the burn
ing of the Emancipation Proclamation, which
cost that city 25,000 for its Historical Society,
arrested the attention of one old colored woman,
a slave all her life, who viewed the proclamation
much as the Israelites did the Ark of the Cove
nant. " What dat," she said, burnt up?
' Yes, aunty, burned up."
" Den what gwme come of us again? "
" I don't know ; may be you'll be slaves as
" Den dis chile gwine to die right now."
And throwing up ber bands in dismay, she left
the presence of ber mistress, visiting dire impre
cations on the bead of the man " what sot out
Of all the printed humors the best is from St.
Louis. It is the story of an understanding
genius living in that city who, hearing of the
magnificent desolation of our ruins, determined
to visit them as a worthy curiosity. Finding
that be bad but ten minutes to catch the next
train, he started, pell-mell, for the depot. He
was 6topped by an astonished friend with the en
quiry: Where are you off to in such a rush ? "
Going to Chicago," was the panting reply,
to see the ruins."
O, hold on," said the friend, " wait until to
morrow. There is a party of us arranged for
the same trip, and we will all go together."
Bat our puffing hero had experienced doses of
Chicago's enterprise in the past, and was not to
be cornered again. "You may wait if you
like," was his answer, "but I don't. Give
those chaps a chance and they'll have their d -d
old city built up again in twenty-four boors, and
then there won t be any ruins to show."
A soldier," a patient at Herbert Hospital,
SItooter's Hill, a few days ago, wrote the follow
ing advice to a comrade : 4 Previous to going to
hospital rub' your tongue with chalk, ready for
the word, Put out your tongue; then, when
the doctor is going to feel your pulse, be sure to
knock your elbow against the wall, and it will
beat to any number in a minute ; then, if you
wish to persevere to be invalided, be on the look
out for a friend to bring you a bit of raw bul
lock's liver every morniDg, in order to spit blood
for the doctor ; have a little bit of the liver in
your mouth, under your tongue, fresh, ready for
him when he comes round the hospital ward, and
have a good piece ready to spit out for him when
be approaches your cot; then give a great sigh
and a groan, and you are sure to be ordered lamb
chops, chicken, rice pudding, port wine, Guin
ness 's stout in fact you may live on the fat of
the land for the remainder of your soldiering,
which will not be long; but, depend upon it, you
are sure of a pension, even under ten years' ser
vice." . We hope there are pot sr.nny in hospital
quite so clever as this 41 old soldier." Medical
Massacre of Missionaries.
The last arrival from New Zealand brought us
the melancholly intelligence of the murder of
Bishop Patteson and the Rev. Mr. Atkin, together
three natives, at one ol me oouw
irrmim. We pive
below the account ot met
murders as furnished to tne iNew
by the master of the missionary schooner the
John Coleridge Patteson, D. D., was a native
of Devonshire, England, about 45 years or age,
and was consecrated as Bishop of Melanesia at
Auckland, in 1861. He was a devoted miwsion-
ary and had made frequent visits to thedifferent
islands in his diocese, establishing missions.
There was upon the etau as inisbionurica,
ordained European clergymen, besides a very
large number of native teachers.
A profound sensation was created in New Zea
land on the reception of the news that a man bo
deservedly revered and esteemed as the Bishop of
Melanesia should have been suddenly cut off by
violence, and the fact that be had fallen in the
midst of bis devoted labors, and by the hands of
those to whom be came on a mission of love and
beneficence, made the occurrence particularly
sad. The feeling of sadness, however, was suc
ceeded by one of indignation, when it was remem
bered that this deplorable event could undoubt-
j edly be traced mainly to the wretched traffic in
men which has obtained in the boutu Cseas unaer
the name of " labor." Says the Daily Southern
Cross of Nov. 1st, in commenting on this subject,
in connection with the murder of Bishop Patteson :
The means that have been employed in collect
ing laborers for the Fijian plantations, and even
for Queensland, are now no longer a matter of
surmise. It is known that deception and violence
have both been unscrupulously used in the work ;
and that the esteem and reverence entertained bv
the islanders for the name and character of the
now martyred Bishop have been made the means,
hv a cruel deeention and personation, of enticing
islanders on board the slavers. There are those
who have sailed from New Zealand ports, and
have been engaged in the carrying of Polynesian
laborers, who have publicly boasted of the suc
cess of the ruse, and who have stated that cloth
ing themselves in white surplices they have per
formed mock religious services to the islanders,
and so tempted them in large numbers on
board under the impression that the pretended
officiating minister was Bishop Patteson himself;
and in the cruise of the Rosario a case in point is
furnished by Captain Palmer in which the decep
tion was successfully practiced. Probably it will
require nothing more than the death of this ven
erable Bishop to direct that attention to this
monstrous traffic which will lead to its suppres
sion. Time was when Polynesian labor might
have been a boon to industry in the various set
tlements in these seas, and a benefit to the island
ers themselves. But the abuses have been such
that voluntary emigration can be no longer avail
able, and now there seemB but the alternative of
violent deportation or the cessation of the traffic.
With such an alternative, it will not require
British feeling long to decide, when that feeling
is awakened to the horrors of the case by such a
deplorable catastrophe as that which has now oc
curred. It has more and more impressed itself
on the minds of those who have devoted their at
tention to the subject that really there is no
longer a possibility of regulating the traffic in
South Sea islanders. The Legislature of Queens
land has done all that a humane colony could do
to mitigate the evils of the labor traffic. Within
the limits of the colony the islanders are well
cared for, their health and comfort and happiness
are consulted, and their wages are protected in
the savings bank of the colony against unscrupu
lous masters and even against the laborers them
selves. Perhaps it would be impossible to do
more by legislation than has been done in that
colony to ameliorate the condition of the appren
ticed Polynesians, and the evils connected with
the sj6tem as within the colony are reduced to a
minimum. But every effort to regulate the pro
curement of laborers from the islands has been
futile. Licenses have been issued to shipmasters,
and Government agents have been sent with the
vessels, and the length to which men will go
notwithstanding is forcibly illustrated by the
fact that, in a charge being now investigated
against the master of a vessel for kidnapping
islanders, it appears that the Government agent
aboard was drugged as a preliminary to 44 nego
tiations " with certain islanders. The fact is,
voluntary emigration is no longer available, and
violence is necessary unlesss the vessels are to re
turn from the cruise empty. We can hardly an
ticipate that this scandal to our boasted civiliza
tion will be much longer suffered to continue,
and it may. be that the last event in the valued
life of Bishop Patteson will prove the means of
sweeping away forever the sore evil under which
the islands suffer.
CIRCUMSTANCES ATTENDING THE MURDER.
During Mr. Atkin's stay at Wonga he was
speaking to the Captain of the Emma Bell, who
told him he was going to Santa Cruz for labor.
This news made the Bishop uneasy, as he very
well knew if a vessel went there mischief would
result from it. ; He made his mind up to go to
the Reef Islands, and to ascertain if any vessels
had been about. . On the 15tb of September
made Santa Cruz ; very light winds. September
20 ; light winds off Nukapu. About four miles
distant saw five or six canoes coming out. When
within a mile or two from the vessel they lay-to.
We thought it strange they did not come along
side ; pn former occasions they would have been
alongside and have boarded us six and seven
miles off the land. Tlie Bishop had the boat
lowered and went to them. (This was the last
we saw of him alive.) It being low water the
boat could not go over the reef. The Bishop, as
it was usual for him to do, got into a canoe
and went on shore, accompanied by the two
chiefs, Taula and Motu, the remaining four
canoes remaining . with the boat. About the
time the Bishop would have got on shore the
natives in the canoes attacked the boat, firing
several arrows at the crew before they could get
the boat out of 6hot. Mr. Atkin was hit in the
back of the shoulder ; Stephen, a native of Bouro,
had six arrows in him, one in the breast; John,
a native of Mota, shot in the side. The boat
made for the Bessie, and we got the wounded out
of her, Mr. Brook looking after them. I imme
diately sent Mr. Bougard (mate) with three of
our crew and two black boys, Mr. Atkin acting
as pilot (for nonn of our people knew anything
about the place) to see alter the Bishop. I told
them to keep outside the reef till they were sure
they had plenty of water to cross, tlien pull tow
ards the 6hore, and keep out of arrow shot, and,
if they saw the Bishop, not to go in. All this
time the B'tsie was becalmed. Shortly after the
boat left the vessel, a breeze sprang up, and 1
worked the vessel close to the boat, so that her
presence might intimidate the natives from at
tacking the boat. We saw the natives put off in
two canoes from shore. One of them they tnrn
ed adrift; the other went back to the Bhore.
Presently the boat went towards the drifting
canoe, and found the dead body of the Bishop in
her, rolled up in a native mat. A small branch
of the cocoanut palm, with five knots, was stuck
in the . mat. What the palm , with the knots
meant we could not tell, tie was stripped of his
clothes, his bead frightfully smashed, and several
wounds in the body.
SUPPOSED CAUSE OF THE DEED.
It is quite certain some vessel bad been here
ill-using the natives a very short time previous to
our coming, or they never would have killed the
Bishop. Every year he called at this place he
would give the chiefs and people presents, and
remain a considerable part of the day on shore
BURIAL OF THE BISHOP AND DEATH OF MR. ATKIN.
We stood on to the northeast. 21st of Septem-1
ber: Committed the body to the deep, Air.
Brook reading the service. 27th : . Poor Atkin
died. He was in great agony for four hours
before bis death. 28th : Stephen died, he being
in dreadful suffering for two days. Mr. Brook
read the burial service in Mota and English. We
committed both bodies to the deep.
THE SCENE OF THE CRIME.
Nukapu, where the Bishop was killed j is one
of the small reef islands on the Swallow group,
about three miles in circumference, acd 150 feet
above the level of the sea ; population about 100,
all told. It lies about north-half-east from Gra
ciosa Bay; Santa Crux about 33 miles. The na
tives in appearance are somewhat like the Maoris.
Their language too is like the Maori (with a
sprinkling of Spanish words), which enabled the
, Bishop to converse with them.

tioning a fireman a few days since as to the cause
of this change, he exclaimed, "You can't expect a
man to do for $35 per month what he once did for
glory. In the days of the old Department a lire
man was esteemed according to bis deeds as a re
rmn, not his influence as a politician' a. X. Uiu.
The Six op the Age. We have heretofore called
attention to the pre-eminent Christian civilization
of this age in its peculiar care for the two extremes
of human life infancy and old age ; but what
shall we now say in regard to the evident lapsing
of the people of this most reputed Christian nation
into heathen barbarism ? The love of children has
always been deemed a sign of superior intelligence
of noble manhood. Affection for its offspring is
a quality possessed alike by all animals, with scarce
ly an exception, and a few indeed of the millions of
the animal creation eeek to destroy their own off
spring after birth, or to so neglect them as to leave
them liable to destruction by other bodies or forces.
It was left for human intelligences to encompass
the death of their children, both before birth and
after, and it was left to the Christian civilization of
this nineteenth century also to discover and adopt
the most revolting and barbarous means to ac
complish this end. The crime of foeticide, or in
fanticide, is not of recent growth. Like every
ti.a, .; m it li.ia had a venerable existence, but
its beastly development among ns has been mainly
the work ot a few years. Thirteen years ago its
prevalence attracted the attention of medical jur
ists in all parts of our country, and essays, tracts
and bound volumes were issued against it. But
the crime grew apace, and its deadly and dastard
ly fruits appear before us to-day, sickening to the
moral conscience and religious sentiments of the
nation. Ar. Y. Herald.
What may be called 44 moral statistics " are being
bandied about with utter recklessness in San
Francisco. The President of a Benevolent So
ciety" bad started the statement that there are
two thousand four hundred grog-shops, three thou
sand thieves, six thousand lewd women and five
thousand idlers in that city ; or sixteen thousand
directly engaged in creating poverty." As there
are about one hundred and fifty thousand inhabi
tants in the county of San Francisco, this makes an
average ot one in nine engaged in the active but
unprofitable "manufacture of poverty." We do
not credit tho estimate. It is an extravagant one
for a city much more unfavorably situated than
San Francisco. And we may at least believe that,
whatever the true estimate may be, the tendency
of the city is toward progress. The latest immi
gration is forcing out the ruder element and busi
ness in all departments is becoming more stable
and subject to more regular influences.
