[KR?M OTB OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
NEW YORK, October 14.
Along Broadway and the other business
streets the windows ot many stores are plac?
arded with the words, "Donations Received
here for the Chicago Sufferers." The quanti
ty ol packages taken In at these impromptu
depou is simply enormous. They consist
mostly of clothing, blankets and crackers, the
first predominating. The intimation being re?
ceived from Chicago that even half-worn
clothing would be acceptable for the slavering
outcasts, it is probable that many <jood
fathers and mothers of families in o'ur own
?prosperous metropolis have combined charity
with a riddance of their accumulated heaps ol
cast-off garments. The vans and express
wagons ot the Erie Railroad Company travel
rapidly about the city collecting these dona?
tions ami taking them to the depot, from
which four rekef trains daily are dispatched
to the West.
All through the week alms-giving has been
the fashion. The professions and trades have
been holdiog meetings and starting subscrip?
tion lists. Collections will be taken up in all
the churches next Sunday, and the theatres
and other places of entertainment arc adver?
tising forthcoming performances tor the bene?
fit ol the burned-out. tven my small boot?
black has a wooden box, with a hole drilled in
the centre, stuck up on his street corner, and
when he "shines 'era up" winds off with a
. screech in the local patois, "Sa-ay mister,
come down for Chicago; you know how it ls
yourself." I trust that boy makes honest re?
turns to the chairman of the relief commit?
If it is just that a certain very black fellow
should have his due, there is no reason why
honor should be withheld lrom Jim Fisk, who
is frequently likened to the evil one. What?
ever are his laults. (rascalities, as they are
called by some) Jim Fisk ls known to be
?generous to tbe suffering, and ready to (
ump in and help in any good work of
the kind with all bis might. As soon as it be- [
caine evident that the Chicago fire would
bring rum on the citizens the trumpet of Fisk
was sounded lrom the Erie building, and our
people were called upon to bring their gifts to
the depot for instant shipment to the desola?
ted city. Monday night Fisk, with his coat off,
was working like a Trojan at the depot, per
-sonally superintending the receiving and
sendlug off of the donations, and Imparting
his owu spirit of energy and perseverance to
his thousand workmen. A lightning train
was dispatched with clothing and cooked
<food. The road was cleared all the way
through by telegraphic orders, and relief
jnade the one thousand and odd miles of
journey ut an average speed of forty miles
an hour, the greatest ever reached In this
country, I believe, lor so long a distance.
The executive mind of Fisk has now arranged
the whole process ot rapid transmission of |
contributions from New York to Chicago.
Notify him at the railroad office, and his wag?
on will call ia an hour at your house, wku a
written receipt, and your bundle will be in
Chicago inside of two days.
Mr. Ashbury, who came over here from Eng?
land with his yacbt. the Livonia, as the repre?
sentative of twelve English yacht clubs, bas
managed as usual to get himself into hot wa
?or. He is a remarkable man for correspon?
dence. He does not find himself capable of ?
^ arranging a match for a race without going
JP through as much preliminary - letter writing as
two European diplomatists would use In striv?
ing to prevent a war between their respective
countries. It cost a bushel belore he could
make up his mind to leave the shores of Al?
bion and come to America to recover the
Queen's cup. The New York Yacht Club, in a
spirit of commendable patience and courtesy,
gave way one point after another, until Ash?
bury had things almost all his own way. Ar?
rived in these waters. Ashbury burst forth with
another crop of exactions and threats. Among
other things claiming to represent twelve
English yacht clubs, he demanded that twelve
races should be made up with bis yacht, the
Livonia, lor the Queen's cup. The New York
y ac I u men. concluding that the. e must be -
limit to endurance reached some time, ha re
declined the ridiculous proposition. Mr. A h
bury bas responded In a note so replete wKh
arrogance and insolence that doubtless lt wilt
be followed by his Instant banishment "to I <
.^Coventry" by the yachting gentlemen of I <
America. He begs leave to lntorm the much-11
badgered secretary ol the New York facht
Club that be bas decided to "forthwith send
th ? Livonia back to England .or to sall under the i
Boyal Albert Yacht Club's flag over the New i
York Yacbt Club's course and claim the cup, i
failing any single yacht being there to contend i
for lt." It ls understood thatthe New Yorkers l
will bold no further communication with this i
man,'but let bim go back to England any way
he pleases. Hts impudence, bis bad breeding 11
and his intolerable conceit are rather more 11
than our people ought to put up with, even
for the sake of a great international yacht
There are rumors rife of the forming of
vigilance committees in several ol the wards,
the ostensible purpose being to punish sum?
marily on election day all attempted frauds at | (
the ballot box. It ls also reported that the
United States Government will proclaim mar?
tial law and place General Sheridan in com- 11
mand over the city. The attempt of any class
of our citizens to take the law iuto their own
hands would certainly lead to rioting. The
mayor would be forced, by virtue of his posi?
tion as chief magistrate, to put down self ap?
pointed vigilance committees, and to call out
the State militia to assist him, If necessary. Ii
General Sheridan is to be sent here to back
np the Lynchers, a bloody conflict is inevlta- I j"

ployees so that eacn shall have a fair compen?

ly done. As lt was under the old arrangement,
some politicians received large salaries lor
cocking their feet up on their office desks au

the work for a pittance. Mr. Green forbids
the demand or acceptance^ any fee for ser?
vices, under pain ol instant dismissal. Here?

Rev. Dr. Ha ?ht, ol New Jersey, said the
committee on canons were ready to report on
the subject of a change of Canon 20, Title 1,
of the use ef the Book of Common Prayer.
He asked the undivided attention of the house,
as the report proposed alterations of a very
Rev. Mr. Paddock then read the report, de?
tailing the proposed changes of omission and
addition, and concluding with a recommen?
dation of the following resolution:
Resolved, the House of Bishops concurring,
That cannon 20 of title 1, entitled k,Of the use
ol the Book ot' Common Prayer," be amended
to read as follows:
"Canon 20, of the use of the Book of Com?
mon Prayer-Every minister shall on all occa?
sions of public worship use the Book of Com?
mon Prayer as the same is or may be estab?
lisher, by the authority of the general conven?
tion of this church, and this rule shall be un?
derstood to prohibit all additions to and omis?
sions lrom the prescribed order of said book,
except in the cases prescribed by section 14 of |
canon 13 of title 1; provided that on other oe
casions than on Sundays and the morning of |
those week days tor which a special service is
ordered, and at all times in mission stations
and other places than parish churches where
the prescribed order of morning and evening
prayer cannot be used to the edidcation ol'
o?h?r services, may be U3ed, compiled only
from the Book of Common Prayer, but no such
decorations shall be permissible except un
emergencies without the approbation ol thu
ecclesixulcal authority of the diocese."
Rev. Dr. Paddock stated that the two me?
morials brought belore the committee pointed
out Inconsistencies in the two canons to which
reference is made, and these inconsistencies
are provided for in the proposed new canon.
The committee are unanimously ol the opinion
that there are cases where greater liberty
should be allowed ia the service, such as, for
instance, lu garrets or cellars, where an as?
sembly may be gathered, and where there may
be no Book of Common Prayer, and also during
lenten services. The committee recommend
this new canon for that lt will allow an abbre?
viated lorm of prayer, compiled from the
book, to those whose consciences will not
allow them to transgress the existing canon.

pages ol the Book ot Common Prayer, and all

The committee on canons, to whom was re?
ferred memorials from the dioceses of Texas
and of Calilornia and question relating to the
relief of dioceses too large for the supervision
of a single bishop, made a report, with a rec?
ommendation that clause 2 of section IS of
canon 13, title 1, be amended to read as fol?
? A diocese without a bishop, or of which
the bishop is for the time under a disability by
reason ol a judicial sentence, or any part of |
a diocese In which the bishop of such diocese,
by reason of its extent or other physical Im?

A correspondent of the New York Tribune,
describing the tire, says: This region, over by

to offer safety. So a great rush was made for
the park, and the refugees made themselves
comfortable in the delusion ot security. Alter
ravaging to the limits ol'the city, with the
wind dead against it, the dre caught the dried

baked, and fell in glowing embers on the hot
turf. Flames shot up tr^m the resting-pluces ot
the dead, and the ilviug fugitives, screaming
with horror, made for a moment the ghastliest
spectacle that ever fell upon living eyes. The
receiving vault, solidly built, and shrouded in
foliage, tell under the terrific flame, and the
dead burst from their collins as the fire tore
through the walls of the frightful charnel
house. In the broad light ol' to-day the place
is the most ghastly I ever saw, not even Cold
Harbor exceeding it in a? lui suggestiveness.

What Chicago has for a Foundation
on which to Rebuild.
Though Chicago itself has been destroyed in
a whirlwind of fire, the Immense fertile coun?
try which ls tributary to it for hundreds of |
miles around has the wheat and the corn, the
beef and the pork, and the other products to
pay for the merchandise of the East. While
some ol her wooden pavement has been injur?
ed, the greater part ot it ls in good condition.
The streets have been raised several feet, giv?
ing good drainage. The foundations of most
ot the consumed buildings are uninjured. The
gas and waler pipes are laid through all the
streets of the city. The sewerage was nearly
complete bet?re the conflagration, and was
uninjured by lt. The damage to the water?
works was very slight, and within a few days
they will be in full operation again. The
bridges are nearly all preserved. The lake
tunnel, by which the city ls supplied with water,
the tunuel nuder the malu river, and that
under the south brancb are all uninjured.
These works alone may be counted as consti?
tuting from 20 to 40 per cent, of the cost ol
rebuilding the city. The chamber of com?
merce and several of the leading business
houses have already determined to rebuild im?
mediately upon the former sites. There can
be no doubt but that Hie business centre of |
the etty will be re-established at once upon Its
old toundai.ion. The dozen or more railways,
branching off In all directions through the
Mississippi Valley will soon be pouring the
wealth of the country Into the city as rapidly
as ever. It isltrue that two large depots have
been burned, but they had long since beccme
too small for the business of the roads. Others | (
of larder dimensions and better accommoda?
tions will immediately take their places. That I ]
indomitable perseverance and genuine "grit" | j
which made Chicago in the past will In a very
few j ears raise u.i the Chicago ot the future. *

[From the New Orleans Price Current ]
The motley contributions of New Orleans to
the relief of Chicago are as large and as libe?
ral as could be expected from a city whose
people have little except their energies to rely
on. Still the amount Is sufficient to show the
sincere sympathy of the people for a misfor?
tune which falls chiefly upon the poor and
the helpless. The man of one sect, who
cares for the wounded man of anoth?
er, is considered an example worjpy
of divine regard; aud however a people may
be separated by section or opinion, all true
mea will aid la relieving humanity which sut?
lers. We know that our people slucerely re?
