Narrow Escape.—But for the interposition
of one or two disinterested parties we should
have to record another case of robbery. The
facts are as follows: An old gentleman, but lit
tie used to tiavelliug, started from Boston Tues
day night for Calais. He took the boat in Bos
ton and came to this city yesterday morning.
As lie was going aboard the boat he was ac
costed by two young men who asked him where
he was going. He told them, and they sug
gested that he would need a lot of money for
such c journey as that. He said lie guessed he
had euough as he had about 8-00 in gold. This
was just what the scamps wanted to kuovv, and
they began to lay their plans to rob the old
gentleman. On arrival in this city the three
weut to City Hotel, '’ here the proprietor no
ticed that the young men were very attentive
10 the old man, who appeared to rather like
their attentions. The proprietor suspected that
all was not light, and asked the old geutlemau
whatdiehad in liisjsatchel. He said that his gold
was there. At this the proprietor saw what the
young men were after, and took the satchel and
put it iu his safe. The young scamps seeing
that they were foiled in their att mpts for the
time being, asked the old gentleman to go out
for a walk. They were gone from the hotel but
a short time when they returned, and it was
very evident that the old man had been drink
ing to excess. The rogues kept around their
intended victim until he started for the depot
in a back, at no >n, to go to Calais. Seeing the
satchel with the money they got into the hack
and started for the depot, but the proprietor
told the driver of the hack to put an officer on
their track on arrival at the depot. The driver
told officer Seth Sterling who the young men
were, and the officer at once took iu the situa
tion and told the rogues to leave the depot,
which they did after some talk. The officer
then found the conductor of the train and gave
the old uiau into his charge. The old gentle
man said that lie lent the rogues about fifteen
dollars apiece coming down ou the boat. The
officer thinks that he has seen the scamps be
I fore, and it will uot be strange if they see him
! or some other officer again.
A Livedy ITout.—Last eveuiog, about 11
o’clock, the barber at the New England House
started to go to bis room, when he discovered
his sweetheart iu a room witli several gentle
men, among whom was a young man named
Crawford. The barber atouce called the young
woman from the room, slapped her face and
started for Crawford.^ When Crawford saw
him coming he picked up the lamp and threw
it with all his might, striking the barber in the
forehead aud cutting a deep gash. As the
light was out it was perfectly dark and the
two men pitched into one another. They
fought about ten minutes, and succeeded in
poaudingeae.il other up terribly, when Craw
ford got away and ran down stairs closely fol
lowed by the barber. On arriving at the office
of the hotel they were met by officer Miles
who arrested them both Crawford was locked
up and the barber had his wounds dressed by
Ur. Ring. The room where the fight took place
was a sight to behold, every part of it being
covered with blood.

more favored spot it reached 100°. In tire

A Nuiitaiicc.
Mr. Editor,—There is a manner iu which
some busiuess, if business it may be called, is
done that is not only annoying,but in many in
stances little short of a nuisance. It is the
pressing of goods, wares and articles upon peo
ple by agents wbeu “the lady of the house” de
cidedly refuses to purchase. Whatever manu
facturers aud business men may want of au
agent or clerk to possess as to his qualifications
aud abilities as a“salestnau,’’there are some sen
sible minded people who wish the privilege of
exercising their own judgment without the
necessity of any one’s talking the matter into
them. No matter what is characteristic of
smartness in selling goods people do not want
to he sold, aud the man or woman who knows
vvheu he or she wants to buy will not be influ
enced by talk. The business of travelling
agents, pedlers and such should be under some
lestriciious that people may not he imposed up
on, aud that they should understand that when
the appealtd to say no, they mean it; as in
many eases the women folks have to confront
these boring traders. Whether a lady goes to a
store or is c illed upon at her house, she wants
the privilege of deciding for herself, and not
have a battery of talk opened upon her. We
believe iu talk to a proper extent and adapted
to circumstances, hut discrimination is needed,
and but few apply the happy art with their
fluency of speech and over ambitious desires.—
There are modest as well as active men in these
avocations, and for such these words have no
application. There are some it is unsparingly
meant for who in their imprudent way try to
take the advantage of unprotected women.

Chicago, July 15.—The limits of the fire are
as follows: Ou Clark street at No. 535, which
is above 12tb street on the south ami on tbe
north side about Polk street. On Dearborn
street, tbe southern limit is near 12(h street and 1
the northern limit Polk street. On Wabasli
avenue, Harmon court forms the southern
boundary, tbe northern limit beiug between
Jackson and Van Huron streets. On State !
street, the southern limit is Harrison court, tne
line extending on the north nearly to Jackson ,
street. Third and Fourth avenues are burned
the whole length. A number of houses were
burned ou Michigan avenue, but the street is
not damaged to auy great extent.
The 1 >ss is variously estimated, but cannot be !
giveu with accuracy, it will not be less than
$4,000 000 and probably not over $0,000,000.
About two-tiftbs of this is covered by insur
ance, divided among numerous companies.
Since the great'tire, companies have been care
ful not to take large risks in one locality.—
Among the largest los.-es are the Jewish syna
gogue, $30,000; Adelphi theatre, $75,000; St.
James hotel and furniture, $150,000; postoffice,
$50,000; 1st Baptist church, $100,000; Church

Tbe centre of the negro population of Chicago
has been swept out of existence.
Tbe streets iu the new burnt district were
very narrow, closely built and thickly settled
- he number of unhoused is much less however
than iu the previous tire. The lake front park
between 12th street and the Exposition build
ing again presents the pitiful spectacle seen in
October, 1871, of families with wliat furniture
they cculd save. There are some sad cases
seen, such as mother mourning the Joss of chil
dren whom she could not rescue.
The lire touched Michigan aveuue, one of
the fashionable residence streets, only at a
point between Congress and Harrisou streets.
It destroyed, among others, the tine residences
of Thomas Hayne and George A. Walker.
Our citizens are reviewing tba situation this
morning. They congratulate themselves that
they have escaped the destruction of the most
important busiuess portion, which was im
iniiieut at one time.
The tire originated iu a low frame building
used for storing rigs, and adjoining an oil fac
tory that stood between 4tli avenue and Clark
street, on Taylor street. There was a still sea
breeze blowing, so that by the time the flames
had consume 1 sma l dwellings, stables, etc.,
and reached State street where there were sub
stautial business bouse-, they were like the
heat of a furnace and all consuming, ;n power.
Fortunately, after burning up nearly tweuty
blocks and destroying tbe Fust Uaptist chinch
and two other churches, the post office on Mich
igan avenue and St. James Hotel, several ele
gant blocks erected after the fire of 1871, and a
uumber of fine residences, the flames were
stayed right at the very doors of the heaviest
business blocks and three or four of the best
hotels.
The space burned over is fifty-seven acres,
and the number of buildings about 1700. The
loss of ^ life is three cbildten, one woman aud
three firemen. The loss of property about four
and a half millions.
The Tribune says editorially:
Every cool-headed observer of the fire must
have felt that we have paid alight penalty after
allowing our magnificent business centre to be
surrounded with wooden rookeries. We have
come off cheap. A great eildedmartyr, around
which faggots have been so profusely piled, has
not yet beeu burned to death. Perhaps this
small .calamity will show us how to save it,
perhaps not. There are now some sixty acres
of burned territory between the fagots and the
victim. This gap may be the means of saving
wliat is left. Lf so. let us thank God. The
predestined fate of every wooden building in a
large city is, to be burned sometime. We have
now offered up sixty acres of our combustibles
as a sacrifice to the genius of free institutions,
meaning thereby the freedom of every man to
keep a tinder box and an oil factory where it
suits him best. Would tint we could say that
this is the last of such mad folly, if not Chica
go still has thousands upon thousands of wood
en shanties to feed future fires and go down.
The Times and lnter-Oceau both speak in
strong terms of the foll.v of allowing wooden
buildings within the city limits.

Still Another Fire.
A Block Bnrnril-Iuccnitiurie* Busy.
Chicago, July 15.—8 1'. M. Another tiro
broke out about 4:30 o’clock this afternoon in
the northwestern part of the city in the vicinity
of the junction of Milwaukee anil Chicago
avenues. Fifteen or twenty buildings, com
prising stores, saloons, planing aud carpenter
shops were burned in a short time, the llanies
being fanned by a brisk northwest breeze and
led by very inflammable material. The Are de
partment was promptly on the ground and by
the most vigorous efforts succeeded iD checking
the progress of tbo tire before it did further
damage than already stated.
* Considerable excitement prevailed for a time,
and a repetition of the scenes of last night was
feared. The tire originated in Dugan’s smoke
house in the rear of his establishment. Nearly
an entire block was burned, hut the buildings
were most y of an inferior sort. One planing
mill was destroyed witli some valuable machin
ery and patterns. The loss is estimated at
$60,000.
During the progress of this tire two attempts
at incendiarism m the same neighborhood were
discovered and frustrated. In one case kerosene
was used.
Another alarm was sounded from the corner
of Wabash avenue.

THE GREAT SCANDAL.
A Flood of (joMNip-No C ouipr online—'Til
ioa-n Cane a Weak One,
New York, July 15.—The report that Mrs.
Tilton Inis left her husband is confirmed. A
strong effort is now being made to hush up the
scat dal on the basis of a proposal made by
l1 rank NJoulton to the investigating committee,
j viz.: That Beecher should set Tilton right be
fore the world in the matter of the charges a.id
insinuations of Plymouth church and Dr. Ba
con, and that both parties then decline to make
any further exposure of the original difficulty
between them.
The Brooklyn Eagle says that the Beecher
investigating committee held another and very
important meeting last evening, it is known
mm rev^ations made by witnesses show that
1 heodore Tilton did for a long time treat his
wife in a manner little short of brutal. Mem
bers of the committee stated to day, positively
and without reservation that Mr. Beecher’s de
maud fur an investigation was made in the
tuilest, good faith that he expected, and de
sired the most thorough examination possible
into the scandal, and that even if Mr. Beecher
were not acting in good faith and was desirous
of such a compromise with Mr. Tilton as would
close Mr. Tilton's mouth, it would be impossible
foi him to effect it. The investigation has gone
beyond Mr. Beecher’s power to control it. and
whatever there may be at the bottom of the
scandal, and no matter whom or bow much it
injures, the facts, so far as lies in the power of
the committee, shall be brought to light.
1 he Brooklyn Argus says that it is rumored
that at a meeting last night, each and every
member of the committee declared that the
subject should not he compromised. They pro
pose to make an investigation throughout and
before the rt part is made will take every meaus
possible to bring out the facts of the case.
1 hey will wait long enough to allow everybody
who knows or claims to know any facts bearing
upon the inti iter, an opportunity to testify.
1 lie statement was made to-day that the report
for overtures for a compromise came from Mr.
Beecher’s friends, was incorrect. It is said
...... ..f .1.. . ... 1 ..
ilie matter of a compromise was first broached
by parties operating in the interest of Mr
Tilton.
A gentleman of high standing in the com
munity, who lias taken an active part botli as
the friend of Mr. Beecher and of Mr. Tilton,
said this afternoon: ‘‘Mr. Tdton is in a tight
place, and lie realizes it.” Mr. Beecher would
not permit anyone to broach the subject of a
compromise at tins stage of affairs, and the
committee tiavo scouted the idea they have
already tieard enough to convince them that
Mr. Tilton has a weak case.
Mrs. Tilton declines to make any public state
ment, hut is understood to say privately that
hie with a man who kept dragging her name
through the mire of controversy became intol
erable. She was prepared to suffer at the
hands of strangers, but when her husband
joined the bend of defamers, slm felt constrain
ed to move in her own interest. She deems it
not less a duty to lierseli than to her children
'o show in what estimation she holds those
who have been trying to make her name a bye
word in the world.
Mr. Tilton has already taken eminent legal
advice as to the best method of carrying his
ease w here in his judgement it belongs, in the
courts. Tilton regards the committee and its
report as a mere incident in the future devel
opement o: the case, that the interests involved
are so great that they can properly only he set
tled in conformity with the rules that govern
courts where testimony is taken under oath.
Tilton will meet the committee next Monday.
THE SARATOGA RACE.
TIio Princeton Freshmen Win.
Yale Next and Contesting.
Saratoga, July 15,—Owing to roughness of
the water the Freshmen and single scull races
to-day were postponed from half past 3 o’clock
to between 5 and 6 o’clock. Long before the
time fixed, the places assigned to spectators
were all filled, and there were in the village
hundreds anxious to secure conveyance to the
lake.
race would take place first between 5 and (i
o’clock. The usual guns tired at the starting
point down the lake were heard, and at length
it was announced the contestants had started.
Soon they w**re seen, aud then it was found
that the Freshmen championship six-oared race
was on. Shortly after it was seen that Yale
was ahead, Drown next aud Princeton in the
rear.
These positions were maintained for nearly
two miles when Brown, which was nearest Yale
and hanging with great tenacity on her stern
made a spurt. Yale gave a tremendous effort
aud in a dozen pulls shot ahead three or four
lengths. Tbe last of the three miles was then
reached and the Priucetons, which was holding
its position ou the west side of the Lake a few
lengths in the rear of Brown, went into a gal
lop ami shot ahead with great speed. In half
a dozen strokes Princetou overhauled Yale and
in a few minutes lopped ou her. Yale now
having shaken off Brown in apparent dismay,
saw Princeton rowing up the home strwt'ih
like a race horse, and tried to equal the pr*ce of
the new contestant, but her strokes were noth
ing like so powerful as they were when
challenged by Brown, besides Yale
was off on the east side of the
Lake, where the ending of the line of the
course was further off than it was on the west
side, up which Princeton was dashing on a bee
line, Yale turned her heel to meet a forward
view, apparently to shorten the run, when,
with her weakened stroke she suffered a disad
vantage instead of an advantage. On came the
Pr inceton, gaining at every stroke, aud crossing
the line about two feet ahead.
The race was giveu to Princeton, and the
Princeton flag was hoisted upon the tiag-staff
above that of Yale, but the decision was dis—
puled, on the grouud hat Yale had rowed over
the longest course, owing to the way the clear
ing line w”8 put across the lake, aud it was
stated a reconsideration would be grauted.
Tbe usual explanations of the causes of Yale’s
defeat were made by her frieuds. Among other
things it was said the race was rowed by four of
the crew, one having broken down on the first
quarter mile, aud the other was a base ball
p ayer, and could only row his own weight aud
halauce the boat, but it was the universal ex
pression that a race was never more gallautly
rowed thau this was by Princeton, who ap
peared to husband their power for the last mile
aud then put the boat through the water with
the most wonderful SDeed. The time of the
Princetou was 18 minutes, 12J secouds for tbe
three miles.
The Niujgle Scull Knee.
At 7 o’clock the signal gun was fired and the
boats of Cornell, Yale aud Harvard were seeu
flying from the starting point. On the home
stretch it was evideut that Wilcox of Yale, had
the race and he came in handsomely one boat
leugtli ahead.

The demand for nearly all kinds of Wool continues
steady, although some manufacturers are disused
to bold back and bear the market in ant ciparion of
easier prices. The large receipts tends to give the
impression to buyers that a lower range of prices
may prevail, but stocks have only began to accumu
late. an 1, as the supplies now arriving cost compaia- .
tively high prices in tlie interior, receivers are only 1
willing to sell when a fair profit is realized. Comb
ing ami delaine fleeces are sought after and all avail
able lots are readily taken at current rates. Most of
the large mills have a supply at present, but many of
them canuot keep out of market for any length ot (
time.
In New York the market has been active for all de
scriptions. Manufacturers have visited the city to a
considerable extent, and their purchases have been
quite liberal.
In Philadelphia the receipts, botli of washed and
unwashed, have materially iucreaced siuce our last,
and the stock lias somewhat accumulated. The de
mand has beeu fair ami prices are quite steady. With
the market for the new clip fairly opened, we may
reasonably predict an improvement iu the general
trade in Wool and Woolen goods, both brances hav
ing been for a long lime in an unset tied and abnor
mal condition. Though, as we have already staled,
the arrival of supplies, added to the extreme caution
with which manufacturers operate, has caused stocks
to accumulate to some extent, the latter are not as
yet so far in excess ot demand as to justify any ma
terial decline in prices, but as the season progresses
it is difficult to see how present prices can be main
tained. For several seasons raw Wool Las ruled rel
atively higher than manufactured g<x*ds, leaving but
little margin to the mill owners for contingencies ami
mishaps, to whom ibis trade is liable, perhaps more
than any other.
