The deceased was a single man, a « laborer, and about 32 years of age. Detention. —On Saturday evening an ic cldent occurred on the CMcago, Burlington & Quincy railroad, about three miles tMs side of Aurora. It appears that two freight trains were running cast, but a short distance apart, when the foremost engine caught up a hand car that hod been left standing on the track. The train was immediately stopped, and while the wrecked hnpd car was being remov ed, the second train ran violently Into the rear car of the first, and crashed it, with two others, into numberless fragments. Fortun ately no person was seriously hurt The rear car of the forward train was a passenger car, hut no one was in it at the moment of the collision. This accident so damaged the running of trains on the road that the regular passenger train was two hours behind time in reaching this city. The Oratorio of Elijah. —The announce ment that Mendelssohn's splendid oratorio, “Elijah,” is to be performed next Monday evening at Bryan Hall, is creating a sensation not alone in musical circles, bat amongst the concert-goers, who, musically, arc getting liusc and forgetting concerts in the midst of horrid realities, or only recollecting them as dim visions of a far away bygone. “ Elijah'’ will close the season; a fitting climax to the symphonies, to the Mozart, Handel and Hadyn selections, which have been furnished ns. Balalka for three or four weeks hat do - voted night and day to its production. In a manner befitting the merits of the great com position. For once, oil and water have mixed, and the musical societies have harmoniously and lovingly coalesced, and are rehearsing with great care and patience. The orchestra is getting through the difficult accompani ment, part by part, in the most thorough man ner. The choruses will be excellently ren dered and the soloists are well up in their parts. We trust that as a reward for this trouble and labor, the oratorio will £rove entirely successful We may assure the pub lic that the performers will leave nothing undone in contributing towards their part of that result. The tickets of admission are put at the low price of fifty cents each, while reserved seats are only seventy-five cents. Sale of reserved fleafp commences at Hoot & Cady’s Music store, Thursday morning, at 9 o'clock. As mnayof onr readers from sunpundlng towns will undoubtedly.wish to attend this perform ance, it wfll be seen by the advertisement else where provision is made for their- obtain ing reserved seats by addressing Hoot & Cady, The Democracy of Chtcaco Shows Its Band. The proceedings of the Common Council Monday erening attendant upon the designa tion of a corporation newspaper developed to a certainty the fact which we have for a long time endeavored to impress upon the minds of our readers—vis: the secession prodivltia of the Democracy. The Democratic party of this city came into power under false pretences. Their officers were elected by Republican votes upon thebindlngpromlse that they would administer the affairs of the city without reference to partisan politics; that they would ignore all party distinctions, harmonize all differences, and act with the Re publican branch of the Connell as a unit in advancing the best interests of the city. They have trampled upon their platform. They have betrayed the faith reposed in them by the men who elected them. Republicans who, deceived by these hollow specious prom isee, thus voted, now possibly have their eyes open; now possibly see that they should have rejected the gift-bcaringGreeks; now possibly see the danger of cherishing a frozen snake in their bosom to sting them at the first op portunity. In their platform they dis avowed party; at their first opportunity they have drawn tight the party lines. "We confess that when we read Mr, Sherman’s Inaugural, we believed*he would prove a moderate man, acting Irrespective of party and only for the greatest good of the city. Let us see if he has proved what he promised. Before the very first meeting of the Coun cil, he calls a Democratic caucus; at that cau cus he selects as his adviser, Mr. Comisky, the most ultra Democrat in the city, and ratifies that selection by placing him as chair man upon the most important Council Com- mittee. Before that caucus, the Post and the Secession Organ, both Democrats, are the only I applicants for the city printing; several of the Democratic Aldermen -were opposed to the Secession Organ, and they are •whipped into it* support.

T/u jaguar ignores the motion in Mo, and gives preference to motion by his adviser to take np the report of the Com-1 mittee on Printing. That report designating the Jbsi as corporation paper is taken I np 6 y the casting vote of the Mayor. TTfs adviser moves the previous question and the previous question is carried hy the casting voteof iheMayor. His adviser moves to amend the report by substituting the name of the Sc cession Organ, and the amendment is carried J/y thecasting vote of the Mayor. Finally the report as amended is put to vote aud the bolt ing of one man, Alonzo Harvey, saves the Mayor any farther occasion fot dirt-eating and pandering to secession. We print the vote for reference; XTEB. Dem. - math “ I * Sep -1 Dem. I m ‘‘ I r “ i “ j [arvey claims th KATS. Botsford Bep. Edwards “ Hoyt “ Titisworth “ Holden “ Graves ** Salomon “ Brown.

If so, he should eternally regret that his vote committed himself to relieving the Mayor from the odium of giving the city printing to a Secession sheet It is perhaps the hest thing for the commu nity that the Democracy have thus early shown their hands. The P<w£, a Democratic paper, was not quite disloyal enough, not pro-slavery enough, and in its place, by their recorded votes, the leaders of the Democracy have se lected as their organ an openly avowed seces sion sheet The Democratic Aldermen have endorsed it; the Democratic Mayor has endorsed it, although we were led to believe from his Inaugural that he endorsed the present Federal Administration. It is for tunate that thus early in the-municipal year they have defined their position, manifested their intentions and laid down their pro slavery secession platform. Now let them stand upon it. Great Increase or Business. Among the many recent tokens of business success in this city, we notice with peculiar pleasure the enlargements and improvements of the fine establishment of Messrs. Smith & Dwyer, wholesale merchants and dealers in drugs and medicines, an old and well estab lished firm, who, by long and well directed efforts and close attention to business, have bruit up the structure ot a business already large and constantly increasing. This in crease has rendered an enlargement of their store and salesrooms absolutely necessary. One of the improvements that have been made by the firm is the addition o! another first-class store, in which all the wholesale custom is. supplied; this is the adjoining store on Lake street, and it gives them a front on Lake street (opposite the Tremont House) of forty feet, and on Dearborn street of ninety feet. They occupy the entire basement under the whole building, and also all the upper stories. Thus they have room enough for an almost unlimited stock of goods. From a casual inspection of their stock just received, we do not hesitate to say that it is as large and good a one as was ever brought to this city. It embraces every article or drug known to the trade; and all have been select ed by one of the firm with the utmost care and judgment. There has never been displayed in this city a larger or more elegant assortment of toilet articles than is now to be seen at Smith <fc Dwyer’s. French, English and Amdrican per fumeries, foreign and domestic fancy soaps of all kinds, are displayed by them in the great est variety and richness. With such enter prise, skill and judgment as this house mani fests, it Is certain to be more than ever popu lar and successful. Srx Per Cent.

The continued scarcity of vessels in port prevents the movement of grain for market, and as a conse quence, the demand for money is very light. Ex change is plenty, but quotations arc unchanged— par buying; K selling. Gold is stiffer to-day and bankers are paying 2% and selling for3K. although have adhered to yesterday’s prices. This rise is influenced in pan hy the New York market, and in a measure, perhaps, by the decision of our Su preme Court that the State taxes must be collected in gold and silver. pg* The Commissioners of Taxes of New York have, from opinions furnished them by prominent counsel, decided that the 7.30 per cent stocks held in that city hy banks, corporations and individu als, arc liable to taxation. The act of Congress exempting these and other similar securities from assessments, can only be made to apply to Federal taxation, hut in order to exempt them from State or city tax, an act of the Legislature is required. This decision adds to the taxable property of New York over live millions of dollars, and will make quite an addition to the taxable property of every city in the country, provided that tho Assessors will decide likewise, and look up the owners of the stock. Canada and Wisconsin currency begins to make its appearance again in our city in consid erable amounts. TTiUard & Kean, No. 1 Clark street, quote 'Wisconsin H per cent, discount, and Canada at 1 per cent, premium. Six Per Cent Twenty Year Bonds.— lt will bo seen by a letter from Secretary Chase, published in our local column, that be has authorized Luther Eavcn, Esq., U. S. Depository in this city, to re ceive deposits of United States notes or coin, in sums of not less than SSO, on account of the six per cent twenty year bonds, authorized by the act of February sth, 1862. Toe Chicago and Burlington Railroad. —At the special meeting of the Shareholders of the Chi cago, Burlington and Quincy Road, held in Boston last Saturday, it was resolved to build a separate track fromAnrora into CMcago.and an issue of one million ofbonds anthorizedfor this purpose. The meeting, which was composed for the mo : t part ot the Directors, and other parties largely Interested against tho settlement of the controversy with the Peoria Road, voted down the following preamble and resolution: 'Whereas, The officers of Ibis Company have, ■without the sanction of the stockholders of this Company, made certain contracts with the lessees of the western division of the Peoria and Oqnawka Railroad Company, and also with the Jacksonville and Savannah Railroad Company, incorringliabili tics to a very large extent, and that they propose to make certain issues of bonds for the purpose of extending this road fromAnrora to Chicago; JSetolted, That it is the opinion of this meeting thatsnch liabilities and expenditures were entirely without authority of the stockholders of this Com pany, and greatly to their injury: and that the offi cers of this Company are expressly nrohibitedfrom making any further expenditures on account of the above mentioned contracts, or from leaning any more bonds, until all matters In relation thereto, and the contracts made with the above-mentioned parties, are submitted to the stockholders at their next annual meeting, and nmil the decision in the controversy now pending between the Peoria and Oquawka Kailroad Company and this Company be decided. Michigan Southern and Northern Indiana Railroad. —The Directors and lending sharehold ers of the Michigan Southern and Northern Indi ana Bailway Company hare determined to ar range for the conversion, at par, of the verdne first mortgages into the General Sinking Fund Mortgage. These overdue mortgages, originally fl 97S.<TO. have been reduced, by voluntary con version into the First General Sinking Fund Mortgage, to about f1.60*,000 will be paid off at an early hour at par and interest since Ist of May, unless the holders should elect to mate the con version on their own account. The Sinking Fund being a desirable investment at par, and are of the best first mortgage liens upon Western Rail way property, a subscription to the extent of one million of dollars, (and as much more as maybe required to take up the overdue bonds,) has been openesatthe office of the Company in this city, and about SIOO,OIO subscribed the first day. The overdue bonds being out of the way by this con version, there will be no remaining impediment to the application of the snrplns income of the road over and above the funded interest to the diaidends of the Government share. These shares have gone up to-day to 55 $ cant . —New York Tribune. Milwaukee.—The Sentinel of this morning says: Exchange was a shade firmer yesterday, or rath er currency was more plenty. Some of the babas allowed customers par for New York sight, and from that to H discount were the ruling buying rates, Bneinca continues quite active—more so than usual at this time of year, and now that ex change has got down to a point that allows onr banks to use Fat*tern currency, ic is not likely to be restricted hereafter by a scarcity of funds. We qnote Buying. Selling. N. T. Exchange Kd!s.®nar prem. Specie ptem. . « "CiycDCHAn.—The Gazette of this morning says; Bankers continue to experience a very limited demand for u.oney, and light as are the discount .•lines, in the aggregate, they are still in the de •dining scale, t’rodnee is held, for the most part above a dripping point; a. large proportion of tb© «tw±s of the leaomg commodities Is held in an tlcipatlonofaSonthern demand; and measured by the seaboard standard, valuses are too high for mere speculative investments; consequently there Is little doing In this branch, beyond the current wants of consumers. In other deport ments of business, such as dry goods, groceries, hardware, manufactures, &c. t the atm is to follow rather than anticipate the wants of consumers. There is a general im pression that trade will steadily increase from this tone forward, as it has been increasing for two months past, andmerchants are looking forward to a pretty lively fell business; but, as yet little has been done in anticipation of this, that cannot be undone if a failure of the promised improve ment should be threatened- In New York call loans are Z}4<&i per cent. Here capitalists would rather have money idle than loan it at levs tb*" six per cent«and a great deal could not be borrowed even at that. Established securi ties must, therefore, always rule higher at the East thap at the West, thus keeping the trade there. Local stocks are not offered, except at prohibitory prices. Merchants have, in most cases, money enough without borrowing: and until they expand great ly beyond present limits, and extend the credit system again, there promises to be no material increase m tbe supply of commercial paper. The demand for exchange was light to-day, and prices were again slightly weak, bankers drawing at premium, most of the houses, however, working at I*s®Sf. The buying rate was par. Gold was dull. It is not much inquired for, and it could be bought at s®3Jtf prem. Some of the dealers refused to pay over 8 prem., bat others allowed 2^r. We quote ’New York, Gold Buying.

KewTork Money Markets [From the New York Times, of Monday .3 The course of financial affairs is to continued improvement, and the public credit daring the past week made a farther advance on the Stock Exchange of ? cent on TT. S. 6 cents, of 188!, and7.Bo?}centTreaanryßouds. Theformer partially receded near the close 'of the week, and left off 10&< as against 1(H on Saturday week. The Treasury Bonds, from the large interest which they carry, and the fact of their conver tibility into the long stock of 1881, con tinue a favoritement with the public, and this loan has already a wider distribution- in mod erate turns, throughout the county, than its most sanguine friends could have anticipated last summer. The original subscribers at par find the reward of their prompt and generous support of the Government in the appreciation of the bonds to j W#(SlO5 per cent, with the prospect of even a larger advance on the conclusion of the war. The Associated Banks that subscribed for $50,000,100 of the Funded Stock aflSSl have been e'qually for tunate, find this fact is rapidly telling upon the market worth of their own shares. The most notable point in the course of the money market la the continued and rapid accumu lation of deposits and country hank oalanMS in this city. The following are the progressive fig ures for four or five weeks Saturday, April 19- Saturday, April 28 Saturday, May 3... Saturday. Way I°.. Saturday, May 17. The Treasury office in tins City, during the week, received for Customs $1,049,000 for United States Stocks of 1882, by the conversion of United States Rotes, S4GO,OCO, and some farther considerable turns of United States Notes from the Depart ment at Washington. At the same time the depos it s of United States Notes of the issue of Joly 17— which are receivable for Customs have been ex changed for new deposits in the United States Notes of February 25, and the process of cancel ing the former will now go on as the notes return through the custom house. As these notes are thus made scarce with the public, a moderate pre mium will he paid for them for custom house use, until the whole issue at the rate of $500,000,00) or $6,000,000 8 month is retired, and the customs placed wholly on a specie basis. The per cent, ■value of the notes is 100)*©100?* cent. The price of maney at Bank and in the open Market has gone down to cent, per annum, wiib a larger supply, than the Stock or Bill Brokers are enabled to employ; notwithstanding the ex traordinary activity of the Stock Exchange, the unusually heavy operations of the street inUnited States Securities and Gold Coin. The latter has receded to cent.. for immediate de livery, and 102?* ©lo 'ifi on sellers’ options, which carry 6 $ cent, interest. The dullness in the em ployment of Money in Merchant paper, and the moderate demana for Exchange, are owing, in a considerable measure, to the continued caution of our Merchants in entering npon new engagements, and partly from the easy con dition of the importing trade. Another cause of dullness is the indisposition to speculate for any future rise upon the Com Exchange. The re ceipts of Grain and Provisions are promptly dis posed of either on the export demana. or for conenmption East and at home, and the short bills drawn against this produce from the West are thus met without extension or borrowing- The Export movement in the bulk of Northern produce sent forward, is rt-allv equal to the same period last season, though, prices being lower, the declared weekly values fill 10 or 15 per cent short. The import entries are slowly gaining upon last season, bnt scarcely yet to the extent anticipated on the opening of the spring trade. The free list is rapidly diminishing, and nearly everything now coming in is made to pay a handsome revenue to the Government. The Troy Fire. Teot, Friday. 16,1862.
