William Hull's four story brick building corner of Main street and Fairfield avenue, Bridgeport, was on fire, Tuesday evening, in the attic. The building being in the midst of the business center, there was considerable excitement for a while. There was a large quantity of furniture belonging to theKeifer Furniture Co., stored in the warerooms, and most of that in the npper part of the build ing was entirely ruined by smoke and water. The loss amounts to between $2,000 and $3,000 and is covered by insurance. The damage on the building i about $1,000 and is also covered by insurance. . " The City Oaard Snoot Postponed? The City Guard have decided to postpone their New Haven visit until after election. It is found upon a thorough canvass of the active and veteran companies that many will be unable to participate in the excursion as. proposed on Tuesday, and that there will be no date intervening that can be certainly fixed upon. The reception of General Grant, the Phalanx excursion and the brigade target shoot, together with the political work being done, will occupy all the spare time after Tuesday next. It is decided that about No vember 5 will accommodate all. The Grays have tendered an escort and reception while in New Haven, and an old time reunion is assured. The Guards wish to go with, full ranks and so postpone date to accommodate those who wish to go. Hartford Pott. Church Services. Center Church Henry WbiteA. "la- course b jr Prof. Dvrignt Interesting Ad dress toy Dr. Todd The BfcAll Mission. At Center church yesterday morning Prof. Dwight, of Yale, delivered a most admirable, scholarly discourse. The basis of his re marks was the death of Henry White, ' who for so long a period was a deauon of Center church, a man whom all loved to honor, and who left an eminently bright example, specially dear to his associates in church f V lowship. The whole discourse was full of beautiful refined thought, simply and chaste ly expressed, and furnishing tod for reflec tion and spiritual lessons worthy of treasur ing. The discourse was listened to with deep interest and close attention by a large con gregation. Rev. Dr. Hawes spoke yesterday to his people, making a report of some of the spe cial features of interest at the meetings of the American Board in Lowell, Mass., last week. At the Church of the Redeemer Bev. Mr. Todd preached from Matt. 11-5, "The poor have the gospel preached to them," giving a description of the work of Kev. Mr. McAll, from which the following points were gath ered: While this gentleman was on a visit to Par is with his wife, in August, 1871, they com bined doing good with health seeking, and the last of their stay there was spent in giv ing out tracts at the door of one of the most frequented cafes in Belleville. These were respectfully received by all, and one of the strangers asked Mr. McAll if he would not come and preach to them, (after learning that he was a minister), "for," said the man, "throughout this whole district, containing tens of thousands of workmen, we have;, to a man, done with the priests, " and we are ready for some religion of another kind ; and although the minister and his wife returned to their home in England, the thought still haunted them that they should go back. They did so, first disposing of their worldly effects, and maktng their home in Belleville. Mr. McAll hired a hall at his own expense, and, obtaining the consent of the govern ment, went to work, although getting at first little encouragement from the officers. The first evening there were 40 present, the next 100, and soon a larger place of meeting had to be obtained. Soon several halls were opened in different places and all brilliantly lighted, as the French cannot endure dark rooms. Just here Mr. Todd said : "Blessings on the French. I wish in that respect there were more like them. Anything but a dark roosn and particularly a dark church, except for deeds of darkness (?) When Mr. McAll began his services he did so by singing, using a cheap publication and the simplest hymns, the tunes of which were easily caught, and soon all those gathered could join in them ; then a few verses of the scriptures were read, a fifteen minute address given presenting the gospel in a plain and simple manner, avoiding all sectarianism. No prayer was offered until near the close, for onlv then were the audience ready to bear it, but the effect was often great from these Bhort prayers, such as ' 'Give us this day our daily bread," Ac. They had never before heard a prayer except in Latin from their priests, and the Bible reading was listened to with eagerness, and good books were soon gathered and lent out and re-lent, also Bibles and parts of them printed in different form. Also sewing soeietieswere organized, mothers' meetings called and gen eral missionary work carried on, and to-day there are more tnan tnirty Halls in laris de voted to this work, and many more in other parts of France. A large room was-opened for religious ser vices during the exposition and 100,000 per sons attended, and this building is now used for the McAll mission. Many of these meet ings are attended by workingmen in their blouses and much good is being done among them, and as yet the priests nave rather aid ed than obstructed the progress of the work, and Mr. Todd gave many pictures of what was being done through the efforts of this Mr. McAll. At the close of the discourse no collection was taken, but any one wishing to contribute to this work can do so through Mr. Todd, as his church are to send a collection this week to help carry it on. Kev. Mr. De Forest, of Alabama, also preached at the Church of the Redeemer yes terday from Jo tin 1st, 4 1st ana za. East Haven. The Garfield and Arthur club of East Ha ven has organized by the election of the fol lowing officers : For captain, F. H. Farren for first lieutenant, I. J. Dorman ; for second lieutenant, C. A. Farren; for first sergeant, S. Johnson. The company is all uniformed and will parade this week. Odd Fellows' Excursion.

Grant next Satur day. Dr. S. R. McNary returned from Bos ton, where he saw several of the General's friends. A committee of Hartford men will go to the great Grant reception in New York to-night, and learn from the General how much time he can spend in Hartford. Hart ford's general committee on the reception are : James G. Batterson, Henry C. Robin son, H. T. Sperry, S. R. -McNary, S. L. Clemens. F. W. Cheney, S. A. Hubbard, A. C. Dunham, L. A.

Mrs. Andrew Hull of Daubury, formerly Mrs. Lyon of Bridgeport, was severely in jured Thursday, while going from the Dan- bury fair grounds, by having her team run into a runaway team. One of her limbs was badly hurt, but she escaped broken bones, and her injuries are not dangerous. Mr. B. S. Lupton, bookkeeper at Mr. Charles Beers' carpenter shop, Bridgeport, stopped his team for a freight train, and when the train had passed started, not seeing the 8:37 express which was coming the other way. Tue engine strucK tne rear or tne wagon and tossed it one side. Mr. Lupton was thrown some distance by tne snook, put- es caped without serious injuries.

The Late Henry White Tribute to his Integrity and Worth by the Sew Haven County Bar. A meeting of the New Haven County Bar association" was held in the Superior Court room on Saturday morning at 10 o'clock, to take suitable action on the death of Henry White. . Charles Ives, Esq., president of the association, was in the chair and Jonathan In- gersoll acted as clerk, ; Mr. Ives on calling the meeting to order, -said that he had known Mr. White for many years. He had,outlived his contemporaries. A new generation of lawyers had, appeared on the stage since he. commenced his practice. His character of mind and habit did not allow him to mingle in the strife of the court room. He follow ed the bent of his inclinations, that of at tending to the settlement of real estate. Mr. Ives continued by stating in his official career the deceased knew no man who was his equal, no man so well acquainted with the law con nected with that branch which he followed. He (Ives) first made his acquaintance when he was delivering a lecture on natural his tory. He was well qualified to shine as a lit erarv character. His lecture on that occasion was written in splendid style and command- e'd more, than passing notice for its clear thought and excellent judgment. The speak er next met him in the law school as a law instructor. If he followed that course even he would have become eminent. Since that time he had known the deceased under a va riety of circumstances, and the more he saw of him the more he appreciated his acquaint ance. He was affable, had a mind well balanced and stored with knowledge. Very few men surpassed him on general informa tion. The deceased led a quiet life. He was nnnhtrnRive: touched not politics, but was very free to express his opinions on all mat ters of interest. His integrity was invinci ble ; he was strong m religious and spiritual matters. He was unapproachable unless the dealings were most right and honorable. The chairman closed by saying a word or two of man whom all had learned to love, respect and highly esteem. Professor Simeon E. Baldwin presented the following resolutions and moved their adop tion: Jtebuf. That hv the death of Henry White, Esq. thfi fattier of th bar in New Haven county, the com munity has lost one of its most trusted members, the profession an nonorea ana nouurauio iwbwuiw. man in the State has ever filled more positions of pri vate trust, and through the course of a long life his name nas oeen me vyuvuyui w uuuduuiuk wtsij A nublic spirited citizen, a high minded lawyer, the iwwmized authority in all matters of local history. he has lived to a ripe old age with the good opinion of all, and left a shining example of the honest man "the noDiesi worK oi uutt '- Rcmloed. That we attend his funeral, on Monday afternoon, in a body ; that the clerk be requested to present to his widow a copy of these resolutions, and that the chairman of this meeting apply to the Su perior Court to have them entered at length upon its records. Professor Baldwin spoke in substance as follows : On such an occasion it would be more fitting when the bar meet to commem orate the death of an associate that one of his contemporaries should present the cus tomary resolutions. Hut m this case tnere are no contemporaries. Mr. White was the last of his special professional generation. few months aco and we followed to the grave the last of the next professional generation after him Judge Blackman. The portraits of those men who were the contemporaries of Mr. White are around us, but whatever was to be learned from their presence, counsel and example, we have learned or we never can learn. I think the pleasantest form of professional nractice is that in which a lawyer selects de liberately the branch of the profession which he prefers, and which is most suited to his taste and circumstances, and follows it to the ex clusion of all others. This is a form of prac tice which, in a small State like ours, a few only can attain. I think Mr. White was probably the first Connecticut lawyer who ever in this wav took up a special line of practice and pursued it exclusively. As you have said, no one in the State was more fa miliar with the doctrine of private trusts, with the settlement of estates, with the inves tigation at legal titles and with trials, as an arbitrator, referee or committee, tnan air. White. That was his chosen line of practice and we all know how skill fullv he pursued it. And now his quiet life is at an end, a life which was known to manv outside of the bar, as you nave said, for Qualities and pursuits which are foreign to most of us at the bar. In his historical studies he had nowhere in the State his equal. If my memory serves me he was a member of the American Educational society for a number of vears and hela that office at the time of his death a society that has done more than anv other aeent to foster tne Western colleges which now spread over that part of the country ; and in all objects of benevolence and charity his hand was always ready and willing to render substantial assistance. And now he dies at a good old aee. in his pleasant home and native city, with his children and his children's children around him. If, as an old philosopher said. "No one is happy till his death," I am sure we may call Mr. White's life a happy one -a peaceful one and peacefully ended, not with the terror of a long and wasteful disease, but by a sudden call a sudden call wnicn mignx well come to so good a man, Ex-Governor Charles R. Ingersoll said Mr. President I am impelled by the respect and esteem that I have had all my life for Mr. White to add a little to what has been said. I suppose there is no one living now who was a member of the bar when he en tered the profession. When I came to the bar he was in the prime of his active, indus trious and useful life, and his name was then, as it has ever since, continued to be in this community, which the resolutions suggest a synonym for personal integrity, profes sional trust, uprightness and conscientious ness, and for all those qualities which make the best citizen and the most trustworthy lawyer. Although he was rarely in our courts, and he never seemed to do anything in the public eye, there was no lawyer of his enneratinn who had more to do with the most cherished concerns of the peo pie of New Haven than he as a family lawyer. He was consulted in the making of settlements and the divi sion of testamentary estates, in the execution of private trusts, and in all those relations i 1 i a. tv...;oi otiii wjjucn require uub omj giww tvu.." but iuderment and tact and a good heart. Mr. White had more to do of that kind of business than any member of the bar that I know of, and I don't know but I would be justified in saying more than our whole bar combined. His knowledge of our local rjrouertv titles was something wonderful. I don't suppose there has been an estate of consequence settled in the last thirty or for ty years that Mr. White has not had some thing to do with, either in the way of con- .. .. -.. . . t. - . 1 . sulfation or direct management, ai i uaru lv too mnch to sav that he was familiar with the title of almost everv lot in New Haven : and there dies with him an amount of knowl edge of this sort that no other man in our community possesses, ana wmuii cnmivi. sibly be supplied : for a man who has gone through with a life of this sort in our com munity, touching so many ana sucn vanea interests, involving so many persons and their pronertv interests, with the stainless reputation that he leaves and the universal respect of the community in which he has lived, his life is. I think, a very great and honorable achievement. Professor Johnson T. Piatt said: I will sav a word. Mr. President, in regard to car- tain aspects of Mr. White's life. I will say nothing as to his professional life. I have known him for many years and have fre quently mot him in his library, where he loved to be, surrounded by his books and papers. It was a pleasant experience to meet him there one of the pleasantest I ever had. He exhibited great courtesy and generosity in giving to others the use of his books and papers. He had a great accumu lation of documents in regard to the early history of the colony. No other person pos sessed anything like the knowledge he had of our early history. I thought for years that it was a - great mis fortune that he could not be induced to write or publish the results of his researches in that direction. His taste led him to investi gate more than any other person. He made a special study of the division of the land in the earlv history of New Haven. This was one of the most interesting features of his special learning. He at one time placed in my hRT)d for use Homo papers on this sub ject, and I then ureed him to pubiisn, but ne seemed disinclined to do it. He continued his investigations for his own satisfaction. and he placed the result at the disposal of his friends. I need not say the results were very extensive. Prof. Piatt referred to Mr. White s connection with the New Haven Historical society and said that he had been one of its directors as well as its president. Prof. Piatt said that 4s great mass of information dies with him, for no person living is so well qual fied to explain the legal side of our early his tory. . The resolutions were adopted, and tne -bar voted to meet at the court room to-dav CMon- day) at 2:45 p. m., to attend the funeral in a body.. j A Suggestion. A "veteran wants General Lincoln to order a countermarch the next time the Bigelow Guards are out, which will be Wednesday evening, ...He says he speaks for many others, and no -uwbt all in the line will approve of the suggestion, aa thereby those in the pro cession can get a look at the page mt as well as the public In general- t Harvest Festival.- Interesting Exercises at the First Metho dist Episcopal vnarcn.. The Sunday school of the First Methodist Episcopal church held their annual harvest festival yesterday afternoon at the usual hour of church service. The church was very handsomely decorated with fruits,. ..flowers and the products ' of the soil, . which were very tastefully arranged about the altar and choir gallery. The preacher's desk appeared to be enclosed in a massive bed of autumn flowers and leaves, and the entire effect of the decorations was indeed! grand and beautiful. The Sunday school children were seated in the body of the churchy occupying all the spats in the center and many on the side aisles. The exercises commenced witn tne "Processional." the choir boys passing up the -pntr niHia: while tne organ ana j. nomas or chestra added to the interest of the same by the splendid music with which they accom panied the young gentlemen in their song of praise. Xnen roiiowea a siiorc. scripture xoa son bv the pastor, Kev. Mr. Adams, and a hymn by the choir and congregation. A prayer by the pastor followed, and then was i a .J : t-la ' ' Rrn ttin "Rat " I? lrl ciuuitau m iim bbj - - miT of the 148th and lfiOth Psalms in concert followed. Then came in turn the "Gloria Patri," reading of Scripture, "Offertory," and an appropriate hymn. Followms tne opening exercises xiev. jux. Adams delivered a discourse especially adapt ed to the thoughts and comprehension of children. His remarks were based on the words found in Genesis, 19th chapter and part of the 20th verse, "Is it not a little one." Tne tnougnts wnicn tue preauiier auvtuiueu, and which were interspersed with incident and anecdote, were intended to lead his vouthful hearers to look out for the little r. . ... it -i , . i . tnings that are paa. ana to avuiu tueui, uuu to cherish and adhere to. tnose mat are gooa. In closing the speaker quoted from an old f a- mihar poem as ionows : Little deeds of kindness, Little words of love, Make our earth an Eden, Xjilce the Heaven above. Little seeds of mercy. Sown by youthful hands, Grow to bless the nations Far in heathen lands. And then he added the following, of his own composition : Little children dying In many, many lands, - Go laughing home to Heaven In. happy, happy banda.- Little graves in church-yardB Along the paths lie thick ; Little tears are falling From many eyes and quick. But up among the angels The little voices sound, ''Hosanna in the highesV Through all the choir around. For once in Bethlehem's manger A little baby lay. Who was the Lord, Christ Jesus, And went to Heaven, they say. He blesses little doings, When for Him they are done, And gives His little servants The crowns that they have won. Then let us do our little, Each.little moment here. For soon we'll see the glory And join the angel cheer. " During the reading of this beautiful little poem manv eves were sunuseo witn tears. The interesting exercises were closed with a hymn and tne benediction by tne pastor. Transfers of Real Estate. Transfers of real estate recorded in the Town Clerk's office on Saturday are as fol. lows : Henrv Loomis of Poughkeepsie, and D, A. Loomis of New York to George C. Weber, forty feet on Collis street ; Atwater Treat to Frederick C. Cannon, thirty-eight feet on Howe street ; Jacob H. Simmons to John A, Hearn, a lot of rear land. Personal. J. C. Thompson's bicycle school in Spring field is popular, and many Springfield young men are learning to ride the silent steed. The Andel boy, so terribly mutilated at the East Chapel street draw, is doing better than was to be expected. His amputated leg is healing nicely. The other still gives him much trouble. , Police Notes. There were an unusual number of arrests yesterday for drunkenness, and the City Court "mill" will be kept busy this morning John Gallagher was arrested last evening for fast driving and cruelty to animals.

The Union.Sunday school under the super intendence of Mr. and Mrs. Morrill, with the aid of teachers of different denominations. is doing a very successful work at Cedar Hill Mission. An addition has been built on to the main 'chapel, which is occupied by the infant class under the teaching of Misses Bishop and Wilcox, where many little ones are very happy each Sunday in their songs and recitation. A large class of adults under the cnarge of Mrs. Mornll occupy a larg space in the chapel. Among the workers there was one who enlisted in the Sunday school fiftv vears ago in Waterbury, others who were recent scholars in the Sunday schools in- this city.

The junior class met in Prof. Dana's reci. tation room Saturday morning, and elected the following promenade committee : Eno, Griggs, French, Lyman, McBride, Pollock, Bicfeardson, Sholes, Welch. The last named gentleman received the largest number of votes, and is therefore, according to custom) chairman of the committee. The concluding game of the class cham pionship series was played at the park on Saturday afternoon, and resulted in a victory for the sophomores by the following score 12 3 4 S 6 7 8 83 , 3 2 3 0 2 0 0 010 '84 0 2 1 0 2 1 1 07 After the game there were a few wrestling matches between representatives of the two classes, in which the sophomores were suc cessful. The classes then formed for a rush, and the '83s were again so successful that the freshmen beat a precipitous retreat for the city. The athletic games occur on Wednesday, Oct. 20. Some seventy seniors went to Middletown by Air Line train Saturday on their third geological excursion under Prof. Dana. They then crossed the ferry and visited the Port land brown stone quarries. Here Prof. Dana explained the manner in which the rock was formed and also pointed out fine examples of "joints," "faults," "ripple-marks" and "mud cracks." Many fine specimens of "foot prints" were inspected, some of them made by Otozoums, and - others by Dinosaurs, or terrible lizards, which were probably fifty or sixty feet in height. Having spent an hour here the party took carriages for the granite quairy, some four miles distant. Arriving here the party lunched and then gathered chestnuts and apples for a while. Afterwards the rocks were tackled and the woods rang with the clicking of hammers. Prof. Dana gave several talks and also assisted the stu dents in their search for valuable specimens. Returning Wesleyan University buildings were visited and objects of interest in the vi cinity. The last Harvard Advocate speaks of Yale as a "baby" institution, because American citizens within its walls are forbidden from joining any political organization daring the present campaign. If the editor had known ; the true facts he would probably not have blundered. "'"" - The Harvard crew has a debt of over $400.

Later particulars regarding the railroad ac cident on the New York and New England railroad, as published in the CotrarEB on Sat urday morning, are as follows : The train was running at a rapid rate of speed being behind time. When two miles west of illimantic, while rounding a curve, some of the passen gers happening to look out of the car win dows saw a bright light from evidently an approaching locomotive. Scarce had they spoken of it when the screeching of steam whistles broke the quiet which had been pre vailing, and the next instant there was a crash. All the passengers wer'e hurled into the forward ends of the cars and terribly bruised. They had hardly time to. note the shook when all was still. The train collided with what proved to be an extra freight bound to Hartford whose conductor had received positive orders to keep out of the way of all other trains. The two locomotives were literally Smashed into a shapeless mass of mechanism, and stood clashed into each other, forming a weird and hideous heap. Tne engmeers and Bremen of both locomotives were instantly killed. All the cars' were derailed or rent in pieces, and plashes of blood-and fragments of hu man bodies and tattered clothing covered everything. A gang of train wreckers were brought to the scene after much delay, and early Saturday morning the work of clearing up the track was commenced. It was com pleted at 9 o'clock a. m. The loss to the railroad cannot be far from $20,000. The night was very clear and cool, and Had tne trains not met on a curve the disaster could probably have been averted. In Willimantic Saturday all blame was heaped on the dying conductor, who, it is claimed, was running when he should have lain still. Conductor Aldrich, of the freight train, died on Saturday morning. Mr. Charles Kenyon, the engineer on the passenger train, who was killed, lived at 43 Wooster street. He was a young man of fine promise, and leaves a wife to mourn his loss. Ben Hogan, the Converted Pugilist, English Hall. The announcement that Ben Hogan of New York, the converted prize fighter, would speak to men in English Hall and tell his experience filled the hall last night to overflowing. It is said that as many as a thousand men were turned away unable to get in. Hogan told his experience in a very convincing manner. He prefaced it by the statement that he was ashamed of the past and only spoke of it that others might be warned against going in the evil way in which he had walked, and because he felt it a duty now to do all the good he could in showing how God saved him. He said he was born in Germany and was about 38 years old. After living a life of wickedness for 35 years, fighting several prize fights and drinking and gambling, ho was converted about three years ago in Kew York. He happened one Sunday night to go into the Park Theatre, where Mr. Sawyer was holding a meeting. Sawyer's experience moved him so that three days afterwards while praying alone he was converted. Since that time he has never uttered an oath, gambled, drank or frequented his old haunts. He couldn' read, he said, when he was converted. Since that time he has learned to read. Hogan's experience was listened to very closely by many men who from their appearance were not accustomed to be found in a place of worship. Hogan and his wife will speak again to-night at the Hall. The meeting is free to all both men ana women. Mr. iio gan by invitation was present at the Sea man's Bethel service yesterday afternoon. Mr Thrasher, the superintendent, gave a thrilling account of some of the notable points in Mr. Hogan s life. Republican Meetings. MONDAY, OCT. 11. Stratford. J. L. Barbour Jewett City Major John A.

The proprietors, FULLEIlTON, BRADBURY & CO., select the best goods and utterly reject any and all of an INFERIOR GRADE. Reason 2. Carrying the largest stock in the city, they, as a consequence, make larger pur chases, and not only have everything in their line of trade, but have it to sell at lower prices than smaller dealers can afford to sell it. Reason 3. As their sales are enormous, no goods remain long enough to get "musty" or old. They are daily receiving from Boston, New York, and other sections, large quantities of goods to supply their demand. Reason 4. Their Teas and Coffees, of which they keep on hand a quantity sufficient to stock an ordinary tea store, are good and the people know it, and, further more, are being' sold at lower prices than ever before. Reason 5. The proprietors of the Boston Grocery Stores have fairly earned and have ful ly gained the reputation of honest, industrious and painstaking business men, WHOSE STATEMENTS CANBE RELIED UPON, and all requiring goods can receive them by send ing for them as well as calling, feeling assured that the same quality of goods and one price without deviation will be the result.
