Tiedraiul Dulii* Ali.,«...i''hr Terrible C'alam-
Hy nt I lncaxo..Tlie llleitlon in Texa*.
Wasiiixoton-, Oct. KUli, 1871.
In anticipation of the arrival of the Grand
Duke Alexis, of Kussia, Democratic papers
here ami elsewhere are endeavoring to
raise a great hubbub over a supposed mis
understanding between Minister Catacazy,
the President, and Secretary Fish, and ar
gue that this misunderstanding is of so seri
ous a nature that it will greatly mar the
reception of the young Duke. This terri
ble misunderstanding exists almost entire
ly in the imagination of these writers fc
the Democratic press. Eveu were it true
that a coolness tlid exist between our (iov
.■l'limi'iit and'tin Russian Minister, so long
as Mr. CaUcazy is the accredited represen
tative here of the Russian government, just
long will he be treated with all the re
spect and courtesy due to his exalted posi
Extensive preparations are making for
the reception of the young Duke, both
hero and in New York, and the great and
friendly government from which he comes
will have no cause to complain of the man
ner in which this government will receive
and treat him during his stay among as.
While in this city, he will occupy the house
so long occupied as a residence by Minister
Cataca/.y, on I street, near Fourteenth.
The terrible calamity which seems yet to
lie devastating the fair city of Chicago i.s
almost the only theme of conversation here.
With the solitary exception of the great
lire in London in 1688, no such destructive
conflagration is recorded in history. Giving
all due allowance for exaggerated accounts,
fur under the excitement which prevails
there authentic details should not be ex
pected, the aggregate loss of property has,
no doubt, been larger than by any single
conflagration known in history. The people
of Richmond, who were so recently visited
by a little calamity, can and, no doubt, do
sincerely sympathize with the unfortunate
people of Chicago. _
Several of the benevolent societies of this
city have called meetings for this evening
for the purpose of raising funds for the Chi
cago sufferers. The Mendelsshon Quin
tette Club of Boston give ja concert at Lin
coln Hall this evening, the entire proceeds
of which will be forwarded to the Mayor of
The result of the Texas election has
taken no well-informed Republican by sur
prise. Like a great many other localities in
the South, (here were too many aspirant*
for office, and the result is that the Sfate
has been handed over lo the Democracy. —
In every district of the SI ate, save Conner's,
there were two Republican candidales for
('oiigress, and the only wonder is f hat the
Democratic majority was not much larger.
Without the Utmost harmony, the Republi
cans of tho South must look for such re

This great lire, whose ruins covered
128 acres, cxtcndctl from the Tower to the
Temple church, and from the northeast
gate to llolborn bridge. It destroyed iv
tiie space of four days 89 churches, the city
gates, the Royal Kxchange, the custom

other public buildings, besides 13,200
houses, laying waste 400 streets. Over
300,000 people camped out after tho fire in
Islington and llighgate.
Concerning this tire Sir Christopher
Wren built a monument with this inscrip
'• This pillar was set Up in perpetual re
membrance of that most dreadful burning
of this Protestant city, begun and carried
on by ye treachery and malice of ye Popish
faction, in ye beginning of September, in
ye year of our Lord, ltiiiii, in order to ye
carrying on their horrid plot for extirpating
ye Protestant religion and old I'jnglish liber
ty, and ye introducing Popery and slavery."
This inscription was linally erased by
order of the Common Council January 20,
The Church of the Cam pan hi) Santiago,
was burned December 8, 1803, and 2,uno
persons perished in the Haines.
It will be seen from the above record,
that the conflagration in Chicago is the
largest which has taken place in tho world
since the great lire iv London in 1608.
