-Of the horrors of the Chicago fire, a corres?
pondent writes the following, describing a
scene on the edge of the lake: On every yard
Ol the b?ach and water fell flaming fagots In a
deadly shower. In all directions bair was
singed and the upper clothing set on fire. The
fugitives backed into the water and faced (he
Art at bay, and stood so near together that
they sould extinguish each other. uPut me
out!" "Put me out!" was heard on all sides,
and *Yomen who were unusually exposed, or
whose garments were exceptionally inflam?
mable, were repeatedly dipped into the water
by their neighbors. Boys and girls burrowed
In the sand up to their necks, close to the water,
and laved their heads and faces constantly.
Babies were frequently dipped to their utter
wonder and annoyance.
- Somebody has brought from Chicago a
curious memorial of the great Ure. Among the
ruins of the Western News Company's estab?
lishment, where aa immense slock of periodi?
cals and books was reduced to ashes, there
was found a single leaf of a quarto Bible,
charred around the edges. It coutained the
first chapter o? the Lamentations of Jeremiah,
which opens with the following words : "How
doth the city sit solitary that was full of peo?
ple ! how is she become as a widow ! she that
was great among the nations and princess
amonz the provinces, how ls she become tribu?
tary ! She weepeth sore in the night, and h* r
tears are on her cheeks: among ail her lovers
she bath none to comfort her." And that was
the only lragmen-. of literature saved from the
News Company's great depot.
-A New York letter of Saturday says: ..The
cotton question assumes a new phase. The
bulls are terribly disgusted at the turn of
affairs. The receipts on last Tuesday and
Wednesday were about forty-three hundred
bales in excess cf last year. This excess, in
face ol the greatly reduced estimates of the j
crop, has confounded operators, and the first
impulse is a wish to sell. The available sup?
ply of colton is, however, quite small, and
consequently cotton for future delivery has
declined much more than lots on the spot.
Wa have, in addition to the Increased receipts
at tho ports, great stringency in the money
markets and a decline in gold and exchange.
It ls doubtful if our banks and Insurance com?
panies will stand up under the losses incurred
at Chicago as well as lt was hoped and expect?
ed one week ago. Three insurance companies
were placed In the hands or receivers yester?
day, and two others have taken stet'? to com?
promise with their creditors. There has been
a great pressure in this market to sell Hie lead?
ing staples of Western produc s, and puces
have declined more or less. We have large
Btocks ol corn, oats, pork, lard, tallow, ?c.,
upon which owners have been able to realize
large sumr-of money with very little trouble,
and without mueblad idee, for there Isa large
export demand, and a slight Concession lu
prices brings forward buyers for large quanti?
ties." ' ' ?.*
-Perhaps the most perfect account ol the
Chicago calamity which has ytt appear?.dis *
one written by Mr. Horace Waite, of the Chi?
cago Tribune, to Mr. Haletead, of the Cincin?
nati Commercial, "aa a Blight acknowledg?
ment ol the latter's thoughtfulness in forward
log a compl?te outfit of type and cases'' to the
former on the day of the fire. Mr.
Halstead's action was certainly thoughtful and
generous, bat no one who reads Mr. White's
eloquent letter will consider the acknowl?
edgment a slight one. He begins with a ie
llcitous comparison of ihe fire with the battle
ol'Gettysburg, inasmuch as the impossibility
of seeing the whole of either event would
have been absolute. He begins with the firEt
alarm, the rise ?and progress of the flames,
and the hurrying to and fro as the suspl:ion of
the possible extent ol the conflagration gave
place to a dread conviction. The preparations
for emergencies, the gathering together o?
valuables and pets, the speculations, the trem?
blings, the retreat before the advancing foe,
the gradual abandonment of every possession
save life itseli, and the struggle to preserve
even that priceless treasure-all are depicted
with a master hand. The statement of the
subsequent condition of the stricken city is
not less admirably drawn. His account con?
firms most of the startling particulars of the
catastrophe which have been already publish?
ed, and. being the production of a clear
headed man and experienced narrator, cannot
only be relied upon as an accurate description,
but will also be regarded hereafter, doubtless,
as a valuable document of reference lor the
Chicago to Charleston.
We have received the following dispatch
from the Mayor of Chicago, in reply to a
telegram advising him that there h?td
been forwarded, by expr?s?, a draft for
S821 50 100, contributed by sympathizing
citizens of impoverished Charleston tc the
suffering people of Chicago:
CHICAGO, III., October 23, 1871.
To Riordan, Dawson dc Co., Cha~leston, S. C.:
Heaven bless your citizens ! We appreciate
that amount from a people in your situation.
K. B. MASON, Mayor.
Ring Kult- and Rain.
The bold attempt of Pillsbury and bis
hangers-on to override the will of the peo?
ple, aa expressed at the municipal ?lectiOD,
will, if persisted in, be as dangerous to the
Republican party in general, as to ile indi?
vidual members who live by their industry
I in Charleston.
The Republican party professes to be '"he
party of honesty and good faith. Its leaders
in New York make war upon Tammany,
because of the charges of corrupt conduct
brought against the sachems. Its cham?
pions in Washington denounce what they
style "Democratic venality," and solemnly
tell the people that Republicans alone are to
be trusted. At the same lime, their best anti
wisest men declare that they will cut out
any cankerous sores which power may bave
brid in their own body. They assert their
purpose to purify the Republican party, and
to expel from it those who are incompeteot
and not to be trusted. Collector Murphy
liDgers in office, but the gleaming axe is
ready to fall. In other words, the purest
and ablest of the Republican leaders take
the positioj that it is the mission of their
party to correct all the abuses which have
grown ont of the war. They take a new ^
departure, and dejare war upon tricksters I
and cheats wherever they find them. <
These are the sounding phrases ol our po?
litical adversaries, and they are re-echoed ,
in Souln Carolina, Oar promiEiog Governor i
candidly admits that many of the State offi?
cers are incompetent, and that there is ove:- i
much peculation. The same avowal is' i
made by every Republican in the State
whose eyes are not closed by a golden
bandage. And it was this feeling which
elected General Wagener and the Citizens? I
candidates for aldermen three months ago. i
They were elected not as Democrats or Re
publicans,but as honest men who would con?
trol the city government in the interests of
the whole people, and not for the benefit of a 1
party or class. Their election was so un?
derstood, and welcomed, by every journal of
note in the country. But an attempt is
made to set the election aside. A handful
of desperate men, who are not respected or
trusted in tho HepabJican party or out of it,
who are notoriously corrupt, who have no
higher aim than their own profit, now pro?
pose to reverse the popular decision, aLd to .
remain in office in usurpation of the rights
of the people. They have taken a course of
which no decent Republican does, or can,
approve. They wilfully make a laughing?
stock of the honest Republicans of both
North and South. They prepare the ruin of
their jmrty, and give to the Democracy a
weapon which will be used with terrible
efiect. Their plotting is watched. We may
sufler, but the Democracy will, through our
ovet throw, gain many a victory.
Nor have Pillsbury and Hendricks any
more regard for the working classes, mainly
negroes, whom they pretend to represent,
than for the National Republicans. With?
out confidence in the municipal governtcitl,
we cannot retain or obtain capital, and
without capital there is no work for the
iaborer3 and workingmen. The election of
the Citizens' candidates gave confidence to
tbe owners of property. Conti acts for new
buildings and for other improvements were
instantly madv. There was a demand for
laborers aud mechanics. The price of city
slock improved. All the city was cheerful
and confident. The fact that, after three
year3 of misrule, the city luid obtained n
government which the people could trust,
made whites anti blacks, rich and poor,
buoyant and full of hope. La3t Friday it
w.u rumored that Judge Graham had grant
t I writ which might deluy the installation
w. ibe new Couucil. City steck fell heavily.
The whole community became miserably
blue. And wilh reason. They who have
money will continue to lend it out and wil|
make a large profit. But Hey will ool build
houses-to le taxed by a Pillsbury Council.
They wiil not buy ship3; they will not ex?
tend wharves; they will not lay out one dol?
lar beyond what is needed for food, shelter
and clothing. They will be tempted to put
the bulk of their means in a, city which
is blessed with an honest government.
And what is to become o? tbe woik
ing classes whom the Pillsi-ury crew pretend
to love ? The youngest and most skilful will
shake the ('cist from their feet and go to
other Stale3. As for the rest, they must slay
Lere, and may starve for all that Hendricks
and Pillsbury tare. And they who will suf?
fer most are the colored citizens of Charles?
ton who, in party contests, lake the Radical
We have the right, then, to say that the
men who seliiih?y pr. mote the p oiest of Uie
Charleston election, by so doing prove .their
willingness to sacrifice their party interests
and to jeopardize the very daily bread of
the Republican masses, in order that Pills?
bury and Hendricks may remain in office
for two yearB more.
Judge Bond and Judge Biyan.
[From the Colombia Phoenix.]
At the approaching United States Court, to
be held in this city, we presume that both
these Federal judges will be upon the bench.
At least, to the end that justice may be fairly
administered, it is hoped that such is the case.
We have no grounds upon which to doubt
Judge Sond's fidelity to his trust. From his
course, however, In the North Carolina court,
it is beid by some that his rulings have evinced
a disposition to exercise great and unusual
judicial severity In cases that come up before
him under the Ku-Klux act. Whether this be
the case or not, in either event, we hope that
Judge Bryan will find lt convenient to take
his seat with Judge Bond. We think it due to
the people of South Carolina, and to those ol
her citizens who may be prosecuted under the
Eu-Klux act, and to the cause ot the impartial
administration of the law, that Judge Bryan
should make it a point to preside with Judge
Bend. Although Judge Bryan has always
been a Union man, and his sympathies have
-e-ver been with the Federal Government, yet
he bas, In a large degree, the oonfldenoe of the
entire public. Impartiality-lair dealing
sense of justice-these qualities are very gen?
erally attributed to the upright judge. An?
other consideration is that, according to the
law, Judge Bryan would be constructively pre?
sent, though really absent; and that, there?
fore, were either he or Judge Bond to be alone
on the bench, no appeal is possible, as there
can be an appeal only when the two judges
