THE GREAT CALAMITY.
Further Particulars of the Destruction of Chicago. last f Missing—Losses and Insurance, Etc. The moment tbit General Sheridan assumed command of the relief and police work of tho city agreat improve mat was manifest in the ordei in which the lab.w w is peifonned- This may be ItH'aneed by the manner In which the grand relief depot of the South Side was coo dneted. Immediately after It became known that the sympathy of other cities and villages was to be manifested in a more palpable way than in words, the necersity became apparent of organis ing the work of dMribntlon in a manner to Jose no opportunity of saving life. The work was intrusted to Colonel James A. Hardie, Inspector General on General Sheridan's staff; and a large warehouse belonging to Tobey £ Booth, situated on the comer of Eighteenth and Grove streets, was selected as the scene of disembarkation of the provisions which began to arrive with unexampled ra pidity from all directions. TbeHsl of places from which the mjiplit s cime would be an ahnuet im possible ta-x, and would u*r:ip!i-'c. in effect, a list of all theta-ms and dries oa the Hers of theT.’R. nuis Centra', .dichi- MwbLali Southern, and Rock ad fluid-. Vtvse were all the linos the’. * found possible to accommodate , in this one . ,-.ot. and tho event proved that, work encash was thus provided. C-.lcra' T Uordle. assisted by Mr. C. J. Aspel who bad bean appointed by the Hoard of Trade, organ iced a Urge corps of laborers and proceeded to un load the cars as they coaid be brought to tho ware house, and it is a peculiar com mentary on the sympathy felt for Chicago that the trains arrived with such rapid ity. and so closely succeeded each other, that at no time was it possible to stow away the provisions as r ast as they arrived. During the day and night of yesterday over sixty fnll carloads of supplies were handled by the force at work and the arrivals never ceased for a moment. Owing to the rapidity with which the work wont on, and the Insufficiency of help, it woe fonnd im possible tu r.-cord in any manner the amonnta or article* *ent, or the places from which they came. In many cases, indeed, there won no record with the cars: no emblazonment of the charity of the givers; the only Idea evidently being to prevent suffering, and that too at the ear liest possible moment. Some of the cars had short inscriptions In chalk indicative of their destination, like this: “From Alleghany City to the Chicago Sufferers.” Olhcr# bad no mark; and if they had it wonld do* have been possible to have kept track of tbem, since Colonclllaidie was not doing “paper work,” but, to nse his own words. “ There must be no red tape in this thing.” And there was no red tape; fora ß Cast as the provisions came in at the track doo they were seized by a second gang of men and joadod into wagons on the Eighteenth-street front. Here wens congregated every possible description of vehicle, tarh blaring orders or requests for pro visions from all paints In the city ; but most gen erally from ;ho South Side. These requests were generally cfroplied with, though, of course. In many case* the authority of the person making the order could n .t be ascertained. The po;u:.« nf distribution to consumers were In the chuich?s in most cases, and the scenes in these were, to Uc3 s mild term, heartrending. Time and space would fail :o recount the types of persons , who came in begging for aid and recounting their stories, which were In tbe main" the aarnc. No ap plicant for food was turned away, and the number of families relic-ud was countless. - The fact that a large proporiinn t.f the supplies sent In wore al ready cooked wry mnch lessened the labor of the work, and rt udi’rcd possible a task which wonld otherwise ha»e been unmanageable. The k*r l .-.i,d character of tbe food supplies which were dbcuibarked at the Eighteenth-street warehouse were variable beyond- the imagination of roan to cor.c-ive. It teemed as if the charities of the donors ha 1 seat every thought of prudence from their heads. Among the supplies may be named coops of live fowls, hogsheads of sngar, beads of cabb igr. hundreds of barrels of crackers, beef In every form, cooked, dried, pickled, and raw, pork in Its pn-»<*rved and native state, bags of coffee, barrels of flour, bread both fresh and hard, hundred* of packages of bacon, Jars and bar rels of doughnuts, cheese in all sorts of packages, every kind of cake: and. In short, nearly every varietv of eatable known to the bill of fare of the not forgetting Llmbnrger kasc and saner The great need of the dtyas developed by tbe work of distribution on the South Sldclsnotat present more perishable eatables. Over one hundred cars were in the city on yestciday waiting to be unloaded; and, fmm the contents of those readied, 11 la fair to assume that nearly all of tbem contain articles which will not be useful after a few days. Of course Chicago appreciates the kind ness of her numberics* friends; but it may not he ont of the way to make a suggestion to those who have not vet forwarded their collections. Colonel Bardic t&lnks that the great wants of tbe dty are now coffee, candies, clothing; and. above all. coal. The example of Detroit, elsewhere mentioned. Is a commendable one. THE DEAD. Adead-bonso bus been extemporised la a livery stable, No. C 4 Milwaukee avenue, and thither, since Monday morning, the charred fragments ol humanity have been carried. At noon yesterday the scene wa? one of the most horribly peculiar ever witnessed. At the door wore stationed Offi cers George Mitchell. Parker, Smith, and special policemen, and a long line of persons anxious to obtain a glimpse of the remains. That the bodies were burned beyond recognition they were told most peremptorily, but a morbid cariosity and a feeling of certainty that they, at least, could recog nize what no ono else could, kept a large crowd at the door. At S o'clock a string was formed, reach ing possibly half a block. The police allowed the men to go In by tens, and then, after a look, le 1 them go again. At this rate it was found that 103 persons cirae in every twenty minutes,.or 300 perbonr. The same order was maintained until 6 o'clock last evening, by which time 8,000 visitor* bad been admitted. They were principally Swedes and Germans, from what bad been the North Side, the fact tbit a majority of the bodies bad been found In :h*» vicinity of Chicago avenue and the iver naturally bringing together the foreign pop ulation living in that locality. At the further end of the stable, In a recess, were lying no less than seventy charred bodies. To say tb *y were unrecognizable Is to describe their condition very feebly. Of the seventy but four wero of human form, the others bcingbnmcd ontof all shape. Against the extreme wall was lying one man of far above the ordinary size. He bad been sn'Vocilcd, for his limbs, while drown up as if indicating extreme agony, vtcre nnbnrot. Another body, whose clothing still remained, was parUally covered np. The head and face were not entirely contained, not so sickening were their ap pearance tbit the officers covered them up. Jnet beyondthUoue was abody quite untonebedby the flame*, the clothing bearing i-ot a single mark of fire. This man had also been suffocated. He is, apparently, a Gcrmah. aged 35 years, and has a light mos'acln and chin whiskers. Near the door lies at fall length abody. apparently that of a young colored man. The anna arc drawn np, and the clothe.- burned entirely off, with the exception of a pair of hosvy boots. Of these bodies two arc said to have been recog nized—those of Henry J. Oman and Peter O'Brien. Which they wetc,and bow they were identified is not knowr. The officer* maintain the strictest order, and none bnt the qumtest and most decorous behavior is allowed. The Coroner 1* expected to hold an inquest to day. A number of plain pine coffins are piled up, and ho bamed r.rc some of the bodies that three or four of them ronld be placed in one coffin. Tickets were placed on each mass of remains* but they on'd no; he reached. Indeed, any hope of recognizing any bnt two of those described would he vain. Two bodies more were found on Stale street, be tween Mour-> • «;i 1 Adams streets, late yesterday afternoon. Tin y were found on the west side of the street. rt il.e second and fourth doors south of ibe alley. Dr. Wood pronounced them to be the remainder two wen. They were removed to the Morgue.

During the night, two men were Brand In the grass of one of (he parks with matches in their bands. They were both arrested by Deputy Sheriff Stacey and locked np. AN INHUMAN CAPTAIN. Maurice Whittingham, working with Newell A Son, locksmiths, relates tbe following: “1 lived on on the corner of Pine and Illinois streets. When my house took fire 1 and my family, with what few articles we saved, took shelter on tbe lake shore. The tug boat LIIU Clifford came along. We hailed her, and myself and family, with numerous others, implored tbe Captain to lake us to the West Side. We got aboard, leaving onr articles on tbe shore, crossed to the West Side, and then returned after our goods. I lelt two trucks with wearing apparel and found one. I brought one trunk on board, and 1 found the other in the possession of the Captain, who brought It -aboard while I was there, and claimed It as belonging to him. Seeing that kind words wonld not give mo possession oi my goods, 1 was obliged to present my revolver to the Cap tain's bead and demand my trunk, which I did.”' MILITARY ON DUTY.

D. A. Jones. George C. Walker, mid J. L. Hancock were ap‘ pointed a committee to attend to the matter, with fell power to act There was. an insurance of $225,- 000 on the building, of which about SIOO,OOO will probably be obtained from the Insurance compa nlca. The preaent Board of Trade Rooms, on South Canal street, between Washington and Madison, were crowded to-day from an early to a late hour. No commercial business was transacted, the mem bers being chiefly engaged In organizing for the r ?lief of the sufferers, by furnishing food, where required, frpm the stores so liberally contributed from other cities, and in answering questions on the thonsandaud one topics brought op for discussion. • -The great business topic was the settlement eg produce contracts remaining' unsettled on Bator day last. The majority of' the board seem to be In faTorofwlplng out everything - outstanding then and commcndnganew. This proposal Is opposed however,by so large a minority that the discussion at the meeting to be held on Satarday-aftemoon next promises to be a very protracted and exciting one. Till that point is settled very little trading will be'done, other than a little betting on the future of prices. A little grain is coming In. and more wonld be received were It not that the railroad facilities are largely taxed in the work of carrying out parties wbo wish to leave the city, and in brlnglngln the contributions, of supplies from other cities. There is - :a little more' being' done In ' moving' grain ...out, the block in the river interferes aadly.with the move ment of vessels, audit is difficult.to_obtain advan ces on shipments in the absence of insurance* Nevertheless, four cargoes were loaded yesterday —the Coleredge, at the City Elevator, to take out 18.000 bu No. 3 spring wheat, and 9,000 bn oats; the Oaklcaf.attbe Northwestern, to carry but IS,* 000 bu No. 9 spring; the Reindeer, from the North* Western, to carry out 20,00) bu No. 1 spring; and. the Nims, at Armour, Dole ACo 0., to taki- ,• 33.000 bn wheat. A cargo of oats was ottered, her was not taken for want of insurance' on the vei-^ci. The advices from' European markets.lndicate an. easierfeetiog In grain. A private telegram from Liverpool says that the weather Is. fine' and the feeling favorable to a de cline !q prices.

Since onr last report the receipts have been 3,760 cattle; 4,500 bogs; 650 sheep; and shipments 1,300 cattle; and 5,000 hogs. Owing to the absence of bank accommodations, comparatively little. busi ness is being transacted in the lire stock market, the bulk of the arrivals of the past font days hav ing been reloaded and forwarded East on owners' account. Those shippers and city batchers known to be responsible are being supplied with stock oh thfclr" promise to pay.” There appears to be no foundation for fears of a scarcity of meat, as tbe daily arrivals at the stock yards promise to prove more than ample to meet the consumptive demands of the city. We are informed that Superintendent ; J. B. Sherman baa notified General Sheridan that should tbe necessity arise, tbe 'yards will be thrown open and whatever stock they may contain turned over to the city.. Values are, of course, much unsettled and most continue so for the pres ent; or until the banks have partially "righted up." Tbe little stock sold changed hands at prices not varying materially from those current last week. We quote good to choice beeves at siiO®s.SS; common to medium do at $3-£o£p4.oo, and Inferior thin Jots at Hogs are selling at a range of S4XO@4 AO for common coarse beery and light mixed lots to choice even droves. .Sheep may be firstname.lastname@example.org—according to quality. - - - THE FIRES IN THE WIS CONSIN WOODS.
