of an "Old Fireuiao," tbe intent and purport of i:
which is to shitld the Chief Koginccrfrom the crit- f.
iciam of "Looter Ou" in <regard to the manage- a

The Strike on tlie Chicuzo, Alton and
St. L.ouis Knilroud. c
We gather the I'olJowing facts in relation to L
tbe strike ou this toad, which is uow becoming a t
serious matter, from tbe fact tbat eointnuuieation 1
of every description is almost entirely cut off ,
between tbe difll-teut Idealities ou the liue and at t
each end of tbe road. Tee strike, be it under- 1
stood, is not lor higher wages but for back pay, s
runing through several months. j
The strike a. pareiitly eoiniii'-nced on Mouday *
la»t, but we believe it was developed iu some |
places on the route previous to that time. A train ,
wxs started from tbis city that day, and was run i
as far as Joiiet by the yard master of this sutiou.
When the tiain reae'ied that place, a crowd of '
operatives, numbering sixty or more, took posses
sion of it, <jected the yard ouster Irom the engine* \
separated it Irom tbe train, and backed it against
a freight train. Atter being delayed until Jour ,
o'clock, tbe train v>as allowed to return to Chi
cago. The excitement at this point ran high*
On the telegraph bulletin ia tbe depot, was writ
ten in large letters, "So trjin North ; engineers ,
Ktruck for their bread a:i<l butter." Miny o" tbe
operatives are iti a famishing conditiuu, having
received no pay for a num jlt of m >utbs.
In the towns on the line of rtJttd between Joiiet
and Bloomiugtoj, the eff cl> ;irc m'jre keenly
felt. There is no connecting line a; these points
and coUHetju'.nily tbey can receive no
There are no expresses l unuing and the fanners
e*n receive no remituuees, and they are out of
provisions and out of everything.
At Uloomingtun, the bands empl»\cd in the
shoja and about the depot refused to work. A
mcetiug of the employees who joiued iu tbe
htrikewas held at tbe Court House on Jlouday
evening. A number cf citizens were pres
ent. Speeches wore nude hy Mr. Caliban, Col.
Gridlev, A. Lf. Moore,L-q., J. IL Wickizer, U«q.,
J. 11. Sparrow, Major Rigland. We
take the following account of iLs proceedings from
the Pantograph i
Mr. Callaain stated the grievances of who
bad engaged iu the strike, and remarked that no
violation of pruptity would Ih? resorted to, or riot
ous proceedings in any way couuteoaueed. In
temperance bad been airictly torbidden in any one
of the signer*, aud any iu!raetion wouid be subject
to ]>cnalty.
Mr. Ondley, Irom his long connection with tbe
road as ith attorney, and liir> intimate knowledge
of its affairs, wan Jis'.euud to witti mucti ;itt«n
tion. He represented tb- utter inability of tbe
Company at pieaeut :o inect tlie demands t f tbe
strikers, and ueprvcatcd tlie suicidal coarse wnich
MTAsudoiited Ut com;»el pa^incut. I£*i pyinpaihi
£d deeply with ibe lneu, but thought their widest
course tbe accepiiuce of the proposition of
the Company. Uia remarks ajipeaitd to have
the ctlect of calming iu a great oegiee tbe txeite
tu<ut which existed among the bauds, aud jire
jiariug tbem for ineasuris of adjustmenL
He «u loilowed by J. U. Wlekizsr, Esq., who
complimented tbe hands upon their p&at for
bearance, and upon the paaccfal dtsooeition men
ifested Dy those engaged in the " strike," but
thought tbat the rigors of the winter season,
and tbe other existing circumstances, rendered
a reeumption of work tbe most prudent course
to be adopted.
Alsj. Upland thoaght tbe company was able
to raise tbe means required, and counseled a
firm and unflinching auberecce to tbe resolu
tions tbey had subscribed.
A. H. Moore, Esq., General Superintendent
of the road, waa loudly called fur and took the
stand. He expressed a willingness to ansvrer
any interrogatories, and a number of questions
were accordingly asked and answered. His re
marks were plain and straightforward, and al
layed much of the feeling which bad been excit
ed against rarifcus olbcers of tbe road.
A iresb proposition was agreed upon by tbe
meeting to be submitted to Gov. Matteson
tbrcugn Mr. Moore, and tbe meeting then ad
At Spriugficld, it is rumored that the opera
tire* are greatly incensed against Got. Matte,
•on and have manifested their indignation by
breaking windows in bis residence. This is
doubted by the ageuta of tbe Road here, as they
have had no intimation to tbat effect— br tele
graph or otherwise.
The report tbat Gov. Matteson oflered to let
tbe operatives take the Eoad as receivers and
run it themselves, is probably not true.
At Peoria the same excitement prevails. Some
of the employee's claims amount to several hun
dred dollars, and thef claim tbat they have been
fed with promises long.enougb. So injury bad
been done at tbat point, except breaking tbe
telegraph wire, thus cutting off all communica
Propositions bare Jgen offered which were
refuted, and negotiations are still pending for
a aettlemont o! the difficulties, but it is impossi
ble to tell when the matter will be finally ar
ranged to aa to remedy the inconrenienee nnder

Morphy and Aiidcrsscu.
Tho great game at chess, which is to deter
mine tbe champitn&hip bet ween the Old and the
New Worlds, was begun at Paris on Monday,
tbe 20th December. Morphy had been ill for »
week, and came to the contest pale and worn,
but in good spirits. It had been agreed that
the winner of the first fceven games should be
considered tbe victor. The brat game, Evans*
Gambit, was sharply contested, no less than
seventy-two moves on each side having been
made, when Morphy resigned; the second
game, tbe Ruy Lopez opening, after forty-four
moves, was drawn; Morphy seems then to bare
aroused himself, and beat his adversary two
games, in pretty rapid succession, the third in
twenty moves, tnd tbe fourth in fifty-three. A
letter from Paris thus describes tbe players :
"The first game lasted seven hoars, and was
won by Prof. Anderssen. Daring tbe course of
this game, which was conducted in tbe most
brilliant manner, and in which were displayed
an immense Dumber of the most ingenious com
binations on both aides, 1 bad a good opportu
nity of studying tbe contestants. Nothing coold
be more unlike than tbe physique of tbe two
players. Mr. Morphy is a frail, amaU boy, with
a line face and heall, and a modest, almoet tim
' id air. Prot Anderssen, on the contrary, is a
tall man, slim, about fifty years of age, with a
small, bead, a slight stoop in the shoulders,
lively black eyes, » clean shaved face, and ade
-1 cidedly German cast of features. He is a quiet,
1 gentlemanly man, with a sympathetic expres
sion of tbe face, which immediately predisposes
ia his favor.
9 "During tbe tint game M. Anderseen moved I
much more rapidly tban Mr. Morphy. Not a
2 word was spoken by either player daring the
j whole seven hours. No demonstrations
or false moves were made by either party to itt
e dicate to tbe other his plana. There seemed to
i- be more originality, more gentos, more of the
impnvu ia ilr. Jiorphy'a moves, and more of
study and experience in those of &L Anderssen.
® Tbe two men are evidently more nearly matched
ir than they ever were before."
i- The eagerness to witness these adroit and ao
r- compliabed players was so great tbat the game
ir was kept on three different boards at ths Cafe
d de Is Regence, on esch of which the mores wert
ripnUd u tb> gtoi tdrtsofd. It vm tb*
general impression that Morphy had encoun«
tered a more formidable antagonist than he had .*
Vet met. _ *
il. Leqaeane, the sculptor, has executed, in (
marble, & boat of Mr. Morphy, which baa been C
placed alongside of those of Laboordonnage and *
Philidor at the Chess Club over the Cafe de la (
Regence. I
The great chess match between Morphy and t
Anderseen has been cooclnded, Morpbj winning t
seven games and Anderssen only two. a

An Apology lor the Chief Engineer. t
Editors Press and Tribune: .
In your issue of yesterday there appear* a
communicatiea ia regard to the late fire, aigaed
"A Looker On," which does great injustice to 8
the Chief Engineer of the Fire Department. 1
I agree with the author of said communication
that the management of said tire should be *
closely investigated, and if he had taken a little
of this advice to himself, he would not hare 8
been guilty of making (Jaite as many glariog 1
miailateioenU us he has, and that tbe primary f
ceree ci that extensive conflagration rests on
other shoulders than tbe Chiefs. 1 will now ?
proceed to show wherein he ("Looker On") has i
made pome wrong rssertiona. fc
It was true that ibe t-jg'mis, both steam and- '•
hand, .v,jre promotly oj band, but it is sot
true that tire-plusr» were ia c!ose proximity
to tbe fire. The oue on the corner of Like and a
Jefltoon streets is close by, the next nearest
being on tbe corner of Clinton and Randolph;* 4
another at the corner of Jefferson and }
ton, and another at the corner of Randolph and c
Deaplaines, tbe balance being two blocks, and B
over, from the tire. And whit w?s the condi*,
tion of a portion of them? They were frozen bo '
that it took ten or fifteen minutes to get them in-' t
working order; end when the one at the corner,
of Lake and Canal streets was tt awed out, it did
not afford mote than helf a aupply of water for
tbe steamer Atlantic.
As lor hid a-sertion that " all tbe forca and ap-
pViances to extinguish a fire were lumished m t
übundunce and perfec-iun to tbe Chief," it is utter- j
ly false as regards " appliances," as any one coold
sec tbat koew anjiliiiiK about Gre duties. It was "
for tbe want of tbem tbat the fire raged so uncon- J
trolably. There not ao Eusiue Comnauy on <
the groaoil that bud l/nrethm halt a supply of
bo.se, and some lu l none at jil. This in tne rea- *
K»n why there wore not inyre streams led into tbe
v'ic f.'i ■*- Tileru wevc two, if not
more, btn-aras on tbe lire In the rear of tbe build- '
ings on Ji'ircfTi aMrcet, winch "Looker On'' cotild
b;ive t-eeu bad titf taken a quarter of the trouble to t
bare fuuml tliero lie bin to find fault with i
things tbat he either knowa nothing abou', or
i hat be wants to make capital out of, either for '
himself ot a friend. (
About G o'clock the Chief, in my presence,
ordered ttic only two Hook and Lidder Com
panies there are tu the city, to tear out the north 1
cud of tbe row that was burning, and they pro- f
ceeded to do so t»s f;ir as lay iu tbeir power. Hut j
not naviug the necessary " appliances," and un
able to get much assistance from the crowd of 1
"lookers-on," (wbo are always very willing to t
suggest atiJ Jiod fault, but tint to work), the Cura
icuies • torc'-d tu abaudou it. .
i do not think if necessary to point out any
more of "A Lioker-Oi'a" errors. That the *
Chief may have erred in some things Ido not (
deny. It is human nature to err at times, but .
I di'l.Lc u> see any person bo shamefully
ftttised for what he is not guilty oh 1
It your correspondent would unite with other <
c.uzens and urge on the Council the necessity (
of furnishing a sullicient quantity of Hoee, so
\hav each coujpany couid always have one full 1
set ready jor service, and have the Fire Flu;s '
always iu order; also furnish the ilook and Lad- j
dcr Companies with more apparatus, 1 can as
sure him tbat he will not witness another suoli
o disaster very noon, at least until unother such
a row of shells get a burning.
Tbe Connctl euould pass aa ordinance imme
diately tbe construction ofsuch Fire
Traps, lor it is almost aa ut!er impossibility to
prevent such constructed buildings from turn
ing up alter they once get on tire, as labt year's
experience abundantly proved. And tbe laser
surance Companies could do something towards
stopping tbetr erection by refusing to issue any
policies on them. Ax Old Fireman.

Serious Accident. -Oa the afternoon of Toes
day last, as a laborer named John Lawson was
removing some ruins from the late tire on On
tario street, a c'aimney which had bsen left
standing by the tire fell upon and crushed him
so badly that bis lite is despaired ot He was
promptly by Drs. Connett and Blood.
He is a single man, and liyes with his father at j
267 Chicago avenue. |
A Look-out wao Cas't Look Oct.—lt hu
been discovered that tbe watchmtn in the Court
House steeple can't look out o'nigbts, or is tbe
daytime, all on account of tbe frost on his win
daMß. He claims to be an individual that never
sleeps at all, at all. That is bad, and yet might
be paralleled br turning the bell upside down
and tilling it with w*ter. Then the frost might
take the tvhoU charge of fires. Cannot the Re
lief Society go into operation for the benefit of
that bellman, and secure some means ot thaw
ing those windows. Something most be done,
or the city itself will be warmed with a ven
geance. _
Verv Improper.—Mrs. Russell and James Hil
ton were arrested and brought to the Armory oo
Wednesday afternoon, for the uocommon offence
of manifesting too much affection for each other,
and in a rather too public minncr. They In
dulged in a single round of hugging and kissing
ifl tbe street. This the police considered not only
immodest, but a positive violation of the city ordi
nances, and had them in the sawdust in the twin
kling of a clam shell. Mrs. R. ( though not as fair
as tbe rosy dawn, was considered tbe temptress,
and was fined $lO, while the less criminal Hilton
was let off for the moderate sum of $3.

at Tns Adams Hoos«.—On Wednesday evening
took place at the Adams House, in this city, the •>
Complimentary Banquet tendered to James G.
Clark, Esq, by bis late railroad associates, on
the occasion of his retiring . froin tho sost of
General Superintendent of the Illinois Central
Railroad. C
Tbe affair was most brilliant and successful
throughout. The arrangements, in every de
tail, reflected the highest credit upon tbe taste
and liberality of mine host Walters, of the Ad- g.
ams Home, and fully evinced tbe capacities of p
his model establishment as fully equal to every
imaginable demand for such an occasion. j
About two hundred persons were present, b
and the doors of the banqueting hall were J
thrown open "on time" at 7P. M. Tbe decor- "
ations of the otherwise elegantly spcaad tables, c
were of the most elegant and tastefal descrip
tion. The art of tbe confectioner was repre- ®
sented in ornamental confectionery, in the fol
lowing pieces and symbols: " Tbe Illinois Cen* h
tral Depot," a most excellent.and arttftic
some eight feet in length, and other dimensions |j
in proportion. From this depot, which was v,
brilliantly illuminated, a train of cars moulded l J
'lasngar, was just on ,-uint of leaving " far 0
Cairo." Amodeloftae •* Temple cf Fame," r<
and tbe "Masonic Temple," occupied tbe Pre- n
sldent's table. Tbe other details of the repast,
"caper bill of lading," were of the choicest a
character, and gave a world of dainties and sub- *
st&ntials. The hall was tastefully decorated
with flags and streamers, with the motto across
the head of the hall—
"He was found worthy." B
The gathering well represented In character jj
and numbers the railroad men ot this section, ii
Among those present we noticed Wm. H. Os- n
born, President; Robert Forsyth, General
Freight Agent; Wm. F. Johnson, General 2
Ticket Agent; S. J. myes, Supt. of Machinery; d
John C.Jacobs, Snpt. North Division; Wm. R.
Austin, South, "all of" the.lllinois Central |j
Railroad Company.* n
There were olso present Messrs. H. E. Sar
gent, and Geo. Williams, Jr., of the Michigan B
Central R. R , Gen. Raney and Capt. Gould, of t
the St. Louis, Cairo, and New Orleans Steam- 0
boat Line; Supt. Hall, of the G. &C.U. R. R.; '
D. W, Doss, of the C,P. & Fort Wayne R. 11., fc
and of.era. E
Though all departments of railroad business P
were represented in tbe hall, there was not a sin- j
gle onewfcent who seemed nnhandy and not at t
home fnvjtit business, then and there °
well attested to, to the lightening, not by any c
means the unlading, of the tables. t
After the substantials and their adjuncts had '
j been disposed of, Col. John W. Foster, Land J
Commissioner of tbe Illinois Central Railro&d x
| Company, tbe pretiiing officer of the evening, 1
1 rose and introduced the intellectual repast. In 1
a most and happy speeeh he traced tbe t
career of Mr. Clark, from tbe humble position t
of a track-layer and fireman, on the Baltimore 1
and Oaio Railroad, to the elevated station of
Superintendent of the most extensive Railroad 1
in tbe country. He also paid a fitting tribute <
to Mr. Clark as a man, and to his sagacity and j
ability as a railroad He then read the <
resolutions of the Board of Directors, which i
were highly complimentary to Mr. Clark, and (
expressed regret at his leaving the road after a (
service of three years. 1
He gave in conclusion the following senti- •
ment: |
James 6'. Clark—Tbe guest ot tbe occasion.
A men whose fortune and high position has been 1
won from tbe humblest beginning, aud by tbe 1
noblest means. By his resignation the Illinois ,
Central Rnlroad loses oneot tbe chief pillars of (
her strength, and its officers a most valued as- {
sociate. i'be employees of tbe road take this ,
express to Superintendent Clark (
their halted estimation of bim as a man, their
prolodßl confidence in him as an ofiicer, their
deep regrets for bis resignation, and tbeir most
earrect and-hearty ,<»ood wishes for his future
hsippincjr pr?*>-;rity.
Ex Gov. McComas w&s then introduced, and
on behalf of tbe donors, presented to Mr. Clark
a superb testimonial, a magnificent service of
plate, consisting of a coffee pot, a tea and water
pot, sugar bowl and creamer, a pitcher, slop
bowl, two goblets, and a largo salver. The sal
ver contained a representation of tbe Illinois
Central Railroad, and the following inscrip
• TO JAME3 0. CLARK. j
: J&nuiry 12th, 1153. :
The othir pieces contained the same inscrip
tion on one side, and on tbe reverse, a repre
sentation of some well known scene or object on
tbe Illinois Central Railroad.
Mr. Clark responded briefly and happily, p*y
ingavery high compliment to the employees of
the Illinois Central R&ilro&d, and stating the
fact, honorable to himself and to the corpora*
tion, that it had been his practice, and tbat it
was tbe policy ot the road, to promote men from
the ranks.
Speeches were subsequently made, in response
to toasts, by Dr. Egan, Mayor Haines, Mr. Cran
dall of Urbana, Maj. Bamside, cashier of the
Illinois Central Land Department, D. W. Boss,
Gen. Raney, and Capt. Gould, of St. Louis,
and sundry others.
A number of letters were read and toasts
given, for which we have no space, other than
the two following:
Mayor Maine*—An instance of deserved hon
ors aad of unobtrusive worth in the midst of os
Th* Illinois Central EaUroad • Tbe first grand
link in tbe chain of iron that is to bind the
Lakes of the North to tbe great Golf of tbe
South; the artery through which flows the life
blood of Illinois. Our country owes it much,
oar State owes it more, Chicago owes it every
The festivities were continued to a late, or
rather an early hour, when the company dis
persed, highly and justly pleased with the en
tire success of the occasion.
The "Tduitpixo Lsqact."—The name of the
young lady who proves to be heir to an immense
fortune, an account of which we published yes*
terday, is Ltdia U. Scboolst, and not Mary.
Her uncle died inEogland, leaving an immense
estate, and not in India, as we stated. His
death occurred in 1790. His heirs were adver
tised for in the London Times, but never ap.
peared, and the property went to the Crown,
and has been accumulating ever since bis death.
The grandfather of Miss Scbooley came to this
coontry wealthy, leaving wealthy parents in the
West of Eagland. Tbe amount of the estate is
not, of course, known, but it will probably
prove a " Thumping Legacy." We understand
Miss Schooley receives the intelligence of her
good fortune in a modest and becoming manner,
1 and continues to falfil her duties as a seamstress
> as if the event was of the least importance to
1 her.
Stsausq Cows.—Henry Korner was brought
before Justice Stickney yesterday on a charge
of being accessory to the stealing of a cow from
Amos H. Powers, at 441 West Jackson street.
Korner was detected by Powers in tbe act of
driving off the cow in connection with Andrew
Betzer, a butcher, who is the real thief, and
who had employed Korner to help him drive
this and another cow to Better's shop /or tbe
purpose of butchering them. Betxtr made his
escape, but tbe police are after him. Korner
! was held in S3OO to answer.
Pjotsu* Fxstital.—The printers of our city
' intend having a festival at Light Guard H*U on
the evening of the 17th inst, Franklin's birth*
; day. Those who recollect the pleasant and de
lightful entertainment given by the Typographi
cal Union at tbe Richmond Bouse in May last,
will but need to be informed of this festival to
insure their attendance. We know onr friends
[ of tbe "mystic art" have tha ability and the
will to make this one of the most rtcherch*
affairs of the season.
RavovsTtAxcs.—A remonstrance against the
1 new City Charter for Chicago now being forced
7 upon our Legislature by Tom Dyer and his band
, ot hongry office-seekers, is being circulated and
3 numerously signed by our citixena. We trust
I* every man, of whatever party, who has the in

To a juror—Xevcr saw McXamee intoxicated.
The District Attorney here stated that the
only remaining witness lor the prosecution was
the little son of McXamee now in Court, whom
he would like to put upon the stand, il, on ex
amination by tbe Court, the child should prove
a competent witness.
Mr. Ayer» of the defence, objected that the
child, a boy between four and five years of age,
was not a competent witness.
My the Ceurt—The law regards every child sa
an incompetent witness \tjo iB of so tender an
age, and sf such immaturity of understanding,
as to be incapable of camprehendiag the nature
and obligation of an oath. And tho Court will
take notice, tbat schild of the Bge of four, as in
this instance, is incapable of understanding the
nature and force of an oath. The repetition of
the words of an oath to each a child would be
an unmeaning formality. 1 GreenUaf Ev. Sec.

mechanics' Lien Law.
The present lien law, however well suited to
tbe wants of a new country, where from the u
limited nature of the building interests, owners j!
and operatives were brought in immediate con- *
tact, when those interests have increased, and
contractors become necessary, it has been found 5
entirely inoperative in its effeets on tboie for jj
whose benefit it was originally designed. To »■
remedy this defect, meetings have been held at c
the Mechanics' Institute rooms, where the sub*
ject has been discussed, and a bill and memorial ;
to the Legislature prepared, which has been cir
culated to some extent, and obtained a large
namber of signatures. As is usual in cases of
this kind where, from the clashing of interest,
different views are entertained, there is some op.
position to the bill in its proposed amended
form, and a remonstrance against it is also in f
circulation. With aview to a proper understand
ing of this subject, the importance of which is
universally acknowledged, and to harmonize as
far as possible tbe various interests concerned, .
a meeting will be held at Mechanics' Institute 1
Hall on Saturday evening, at 7 o'clock. Able
speakers will be present, and the legal aspect ot
the subject discussed. All interested are in- 3

for Sieaiing a Horse," and charging D. L. J

la justice to Mr. Heath, I am compelled to
say that there was a misunderstanding relative j
to the matter. Mr. Heath had taken possession
of tbe horse, which bad been a co-partnership
horse, and through misinformation and wrong
advice 1 made toe affidavit and procured the
warrant fcgaiast Heath. Mr. Heath promptly

Tn.iT Bsll max— Editors Frets and Tribune:
—Yoar correspondent of Thursday says, in re
gard to tbe tire o f Friday ni/bt last, " that it Is
reported that a citizen was obliged to go up to
the cupola and Wike up the bell man before the
alarm was given." 1 would say that it was my
watchman that id stationed on that partof Clark
street tbat went up in the tower, and in justice
to the bell-man would siy, tbat 1 doubt bis be
ing asleep, as be promptly answered tbe call of
Mr. Wright when he wa« abaut balf way up.
Tbe reasoQ tbat he did cot give tbe alarm soon
er was that the windows were so frosted over
that he could nut tee out. Yours. «ic.,
G. T. Mooas.
