THE CITY.
CHICAGO UNION CLUB HALL.
Enthusiastic Dedicatory Meeting.
Addresses by Hon, F. A.
Bon. Jo. Knox, E. A, Storm, J. K.
C. Forrest, and P. Skimp, E*q».
The meeting held at the Union Club Han, on
Saturday evening was largely attended, and enthu
siastic. F. A. Eastman, Esq., President, address
ed the meeting as follows
gram or eon*, t. a. Eastman*.
Fei-low-Citizens—At length the principles of
the truly national party, and the sentiments of
justice and loyally*, have a filling representative
and exponent here. The Union Club ISnow estab
lished. It has bnt to run the race that is set before
it—the race necessitated bv the circumstances of
the times, and by the position that has been
assumed by Uie Democratic party—and its mem
bers will bare the' satisfaction of knowing before
many days that thev-have contributed, and shall
Still contribute, to the honor naT strength of the
nation. (Cbecrs.J We profess to be liberal; to
aimat higher ends than those of patty. Bnt it Is
true that three-fourths of those who meet with us
arc members of the Hcpublicanparty. That is not
the fanltof the Club; ft Is the misfortune of men
who persist in opposition to the Government in
tills crisis of its existence. The leaders of the
Democracy, who, I used to think, were patriotic
and * capable of reasoning upon public ques
lions, have falsified the history of that party, and,
though right here in Chicago, they are as truly
in the ranks of Jeff. Dans' army as though the reb
el flag were actually over their heads. The un
looked-for treason of the leaders of the Democracy
has, to a great extent, paralyzed the rank and file.
The patriot canse will, nevertheless, as our audi
ences give evidence, receive a considerable acces
sion of men from that quarter who will not follow
the flag of a party against the flag-of our country.
ThlsfClub is the proper resort for all men, Hepubll
cans or Democrats, who desire to give sustenance
to the Government. We i■» not scrutinize men's
antecedents; His enough tiknow tliat they arc
now for the cause that, next .o religion, is the most
worthy of the support of American citizens, and of
the sympathy or good men ii- all countries, that
lilstow has recorded, or will recc'd. “We pledge
ourselves,** I quote the language of our constitu
tion, “to an unconditional loyalty to the Govern
ment of the United States, to an unwai'cring sup
port of its efforts to suppress the Rebellion, and to
t-pare no endeavor to maintain unimpaired the Na
tional Unity, both In principle and territorial boun
dary.** That is what—ana all—that we. ns mem
bers of the Union Club and party, are pledged to.
*• Is that all asks a Democrat whoso eyes are not
yet open; “ then we are as patriotic as you.” I
would like to have my pick from the Democracy
for members of this Club. There arc many who
ought to bc'with ns, who are too decent men to be
In their present company. But when a Democrat
a-ka, "Isthatail?*’ and professes to be loyal, and
yet fraternizes with the Copperhead leaders, he
sneers*and he lies! No Copperhead will ever sub
scribe* to our pledge. They arc all against it.
They do Indeed swear that they are loyal, but it is
according to a standard of loyalty that is apprecia
ted at Richmond. In a similar sense they arc for
their country; but His not the country that rests
on freedom as its corner stone, and that is emerg
ing resplendent through the smoke of battle from
present difficulties. It is the country as they hope
It may he reconstructed with slavery for its corner
stone, and with the certainty that the slave oligar
chy shall role. 1 do not assert that all men who
pjaim to be Democrats arc chargeable with the
monstrous crime of sympathising with the enemy
of their country. 1 know they arc not. I do still
insist on the distinction that I drew last Novem
ber, that at any rate in Chicago the Democratic
leaders, and a goodly portion of the Democratic
people are not agreed in opposition to the Govern
ment. [Cheers). The loyal ticket was elected
last fall; H will be elected this spring. [Cheers,
and cries of that's sol. Hundreds of voters will
take to the polls the Union ticket—though it may
be all covered with the names of Republicans—
who are not themselves Republicans, and who, I,
for one, shaß not require to become Republicans.
Our pledge of loyalty Is our only platform. Hun
dreds cf Democrats arc eager to stand on that plat
form with ns. They shall be welcome; and they
shall share in the honors of the victory that we are
enretowin.
Why should any Democrat, who means to he
loyal remain a single hour under the leadership of
the Timet f Neither that paper nor its friends are
for “unconditional loyalty:" and the condition Is
that slavery shall not be touebd. They do not give
** unswerving support 1 * to the efforts to put
down the rebellion; in times when popular
Indignation runs high against them, they pretend
to give their support, but mo=l of the time they
are in open opposition. Loyal men** spare no en
deavor to maintain unimpaired the National
Unity, both in principle and territorial boundary."
The Copperheads have declared in favor of dis
solving the connection between New England and
onr own section, cither by expelling NewTEugland,
or by uniting the Northwest with the Southern
Confederacy. No man can deny that this is a
correct statement ol the positions of the two par
ties that are abont to enter into the canvass for
Mayor and the other city officers. The friends of
the nation on one side—its enemies on the
other.
In passing, I shall be pardoned for remarking,
that this Club is not designed to become an en
gine to be driven by any man or set of men, for
individual or selfish ends. It la not the intention
to convert it into a sort of perpetual cancus of the
party. But it is the design and intention to build
this Club up into a powerful instrument for pat
riotic purposes; to have all its deliberations open;
to afford all the members an equal chance; and to
have always its rooms accessible to all who desire
to consult its records or rend its newspapers. In
abort, it is the central friendly ground of those
who profess our faith and subscribe to our doc
trines.
It ought to be easy work to defeat the Democra
cy in the coming election. They are in the wrong
—cot as parties arc generally in the wrong, who
espouse the unjust side; but in the sense that the
enemies of popular liberty arc in the wrong. In a
deeper sense still they are In the wrong. They
give their open sympathy and secret aid to the en
emy who Is murdering m the field, in the war to
crush this atrocious rebellion, the flower of the
young men of the North. The issues arc all against
them. The tide of popular feeling is rapidly sot
ting against them. But it is a burning shame that
in Chicago a clique of bad men in the Democratic
party, who happen for the present to control its
policy and will dictate its nominations, should find
sufficient support to encourage them to enter into
a contest for the offices. Wc must not permit a
doubt of the result of the contest to exist. There
is no doubt, when men’s minds clear up.
Can didatcfjsclcctcd from the loyal citizens mast be
elected. Patriotic sentiments must predominate,
in this central city of the nation. Union
principles must prevail, what encouragement to
the President ana his Cabinet—what cheer to the
soldiers in the field—what hope to the loyal every
where, if only Chicago electa a Union ticket on the
third Tuesday of April! [Applause.] I will not
entertain the thought, fellow-citizens; hot what
encouragement!© Jeff. Davis—what cheer to his
soldiers—what hope to the rebels, if only the
Union ticket Is not elerted. The loyal people must
not be deceived. The Democracy will make up a
ticket that will claim to be patriotic. Some sham
changes arc noticeable already; in a few days a
large share of the Copperheads will become Go
phers; and the parly will hang out a new sign.
Gophers retreat to their boles when any danger is
perceived; when the danger is past, they come out
again, and co about their, work ot destroying the
farmer’s wheat. So it will be in the coming cam
paign. The Copperheads will look so much like
Accent people, that some may be made
to believe they are so; but after election yon shall
see; the Gophers will come oat. [Laughter.] More
is at stake than I shall be able to speak abont to
night. The humble part I bore, as one of the Rep
resentatives from.this county, in the deliberations
of the General Assembly, upon national a flairs, in
duces me to mre you to prevent, if possible—and I
know it Is—a verdict being given by Chicago in fa
vor of the Copperheads of the House. The major
ity in the General Assembly must not have any en
dorsement bcrc. What was done by that body that
-could possibly benefit the people! Nothing; and
the only reason that much was not done that wonld
disgrace the people in the eyes of the country and
the world, and of posterity, was that the minority
wasrlgilant and firm. [Applause.] Ishall do no
injustice to that majority by saying that they arc
opposed to a further prosecution of the war; theyi
say that themselves. Ishall not offend them by
charging that they prefer Jett Davis’ government
to that of the United States: they acknowledge it.
Many of them were elected in districts that arc
loyal, when a quarter of the voters were away from
home fighting onr battles. They pretended to be
in favor of the country, and to support the war;
but it was all a pretence. From the oay they took
their scats to the last hour of the session, they did
nothing, attempted nothing, that was not aimed at
the Government, and in favor of the schemes of
the Southern oligarchy. Their first endeavor was
to prejudice the Governor and State officers in the
tnlnds of the people, by throwing suspicion upon
their official characters. But they soon became
satisfied that the Governor and State officers were
beyond their reach. A committee of inquiry was
raised, to ascertain how the Governor bad dis
bursed the contingent war fund, bat before it could
get under way. the Governor bad communicated to
both Houses of the General Assembly a clear and
detailed fclatcmeut ofthc whole matter. The com
mittee never had a session. Another committee
was raised to examine the accounts of Mr. Butler,
the late able State Treasurer; but Mr. Botler, in
the meantime, had made so thorough a report, that
when the report of the committee came, It was in
stantly ridiculed by all who were acquainted with
the bets.
Then It was attempted to elect Commissioners
hostile to the war—men whose friends shameless! v
denounced, day after day. In their places on the
floor, Illinois soldiers as desperadoes off on a thiev
es expedition— to have control of the funds appro
priated for the benefit of the soldiers. . The design
was to trammel the Executive and to defraud the
soldiers. In many other ways, which I cannot stop
lo enumerate, did the majority seek to lop off one
and another of the functions of the Executive,
« I i? 1 ® °,£ Constitution, Commander-
In-Chief of the military of the State. The Com
missioners bill passed the Douse, but, owing to
a providential Interposition, which deprived tho
Democracy Isi the Senate of a constitutional ma
jority, it finally failed. All the while the fraudu
lent claim ot McAllister A Stebblns for untold
thousands was before the Donee—brought thereby
a Democrat from tins county—and to which nearly
every leading Democrat was understood to
be committed, and which, indeed, some of
them brazenly advocated. Fortunately, the
loyal Senators and Representatives from
this county, by cordial agreement andconcertcdao
tion, defeated every bill of a local character that
was odious In its provisions. Thns were defeated
the two bills to reorganize the Cook county court,
the first of which was designed, by disfranchising
one half the voters, to elect Copperhead judges and
the clerks; and the second, by outrageously dis
tricting the county, it was expected would accom
plish the same thing. We too defeated the bill,
also introduced bv a Democrat from this county—
who has a great deal of culture, and ought to hare
a sympathy withyonug men pursuing their studies,
to take away from the students at our schools and
colleges the right to vote. This bill was adopted
as a party measure ; and it was only because wc
sncccMfhUy delayed It that it did not become a law.

only bad feature It contain* that I will 6 apeak
ahont, la BOW all tight I refer to the Bro’f.ion
taming out the School Board. All know what
concealed in that little plot. Bat, to tS
loyal members of the Common Council— who
permit me to say, have eclipsed the members of
any similar body 1 ever read or heard of in tho
brilliancy of their tactics—[tremendous applause!
—the plotters who aimed the blow arc themselves
the sufferers. The School Board is as though it
bad sot been meddled with, with this difference:
there Is one Democrat the lees in it. And now I
• desire to cell your attention to the peace resolu
tions of the Qimeral Assembly. They arc directly
at this time. One of them was used the
>other night as the bull of excommunication that the
Invincible Club fulminated against Alderman
Peter Shlmp. I only desire to bring out a few
points. I will not notice the resolutions in detail,
■pir.t. It should not be forgotten that they assert
the doctrine of sovereignty, in the South
Carolina sense of the phrase, in the declaration
iMt the Union was created by the Federal Consti
tution. which is a falsehood- “We the people.”
•lathe declaration of that Instrument it-elf. **do
ordain and establish,” &c. Then it is argued out
in the resolutions that the Constitution has been
snnerscdrd by the President: and consequently
tbit the Union is dissolved. That is the way they
reason when they rbarge that thi* war is an unjust
jiik -..j.hoiy w*r. on" that our soldier** are robbers
_ai.il ii,i'.:derertf. Those bo take llua > lew co.i
lei il that the CoEFiltnUon has power to enforce IU
edt But they aleo contend that there is no power
in the Constitution to make war on a State to sub*
duo It to allegiance. So they are contenttoletthe
Gonmment perish. I was born a Democrat, but
net to ever imbibe ench opinions. lama Demo
crat still, but not of the pusillanimous sort that
" }in “ concede while an enemy defies and d*-
cmnds. A state of war rnavofdably to some
extint brings with it arbitrary power. Instead
RfpviS l l i ~g to ,J hc interest of patriotism to the
and « iTin S their best energies
th® Government, and help to triumph
antly close this war, these Democrats virtually go
over to the enemy. No loyal citizen has ruaeon to
fear arbitrary power in this country; and yet it Is
attempted to disgust the people with the Adminis
tration, and thus to draw the attention of the
people away from the rebellion, and the contempla
tion of what will follow if the rebellion suc
ceeds. This proves them enemies of their country,
whether they would be classed as such or not.
Another point: These resolutions commit the
Copperhead party to disunion. In the third reso
lution. they pretend to fear that “ it is the inten
tion of the Administration, at no distant day, to
acknowledge the Independence of the Southern
Confideracy." and establish a boundary lino;
separating the Northwest trom the lower Mis
sissippi; against which they protest. They re-,
solve that they arc unalterably opposed to
any tm *uch” legislation. Mr. Church, of Win
nebago, a clear headed man, and a patriot,
moved to strikeout the word “*ucA I he was op
posed to any separation. By a strict party vote
ihe amendment was lost. In another part of this
third resolution, it is declared that the*- (the Cop
perheads) will never consent to & severance from
the Northwest of the Southern States, comprising
the Mississippi Valley. When these resolutions
were up for discussion in the Senate, a member of
that body, a loyal man, moved to amend by adding
afi» r the word “ Valley " the words “ nor from the
Eastern Seaboard;*’ which amendment was voted
down. But the Copperheads demand peacethey
call for an armistice. Every member of the ma
jority parly of the House Ison the record for peace
and an armistice. There arc some good lawyers
among them; and they know what would be the
effect of on armistice. The legal, and certainly
the practical effect, would be to acknowledge the
Southern Confederacy. Hostilities could not
lease by land, and not, at the same
time, cease by., water. An • armistice
would break the blockade. Our fleets would
have to be called home. The serpent that is now
cramped and half killed, would suddenly have room
enough and spring into new life. This the men
who voted for those resolutions knew, and ills
what they want. They want to end this war. no
matter how humiliating it may be to end It now.

man will not exclaim:

After the slaughter of so many peers.
So many captains, gentlemen and soldiers,

And sold their bodiesfor their country's ben
efit.

The enemy will protest, perhaps, that these in
famous resolutions are not in issue. Bnt they are.
Mr. Green, of the Senate, a leader among them,
lately addressed a portion of his con
stituents at Cairo, and he then and there said that
though these resolutions failed to pass both House's
of the General Assembly, the Democracy had
not given them up. He contended
that in the municipal and . local
elections to come off tills Spring, they would he the
sole issue; and In bis confidence he predicted that
the people would endorse their doctrines, ami, at
the session in June, he promised to put them
through. Loyal men in Chicago bare something
to do to ensure that we give, at the coming elec
tion, an endorsement of a different kind. Chicago
must endorse the President, and bis Cabinet, and
the war. Chicago must endorse Gov. Yates and
the State officers. Our rulers, both State and Na
tional, have earned the good opinion of their fel
low countrymen. - Hundreds of men, who do not
agree in all things with either President Lincoln
or Gov. Yates, will nevertheless vote the Union
ticket, for if they vote the Copperhead ticket they
will put themselves outside of any healthy patrio
tic organization. Only one other Northern State
agrees with the Democracy of Illinois, in opposi
tion to the war and in clamoring for an armistice.
The Legislature of New Jersey has passed a simi
lar set of resolutions. Bnt New Jersey is only re
peating herself. She adopted against Washington
and the patriot army, in 1770, tlie same policy that
she has now adopted against President Lincoln
and the Union army. Gen. Washington wrote.
lElhDecember, i;»o, from “Camp near Falla of
Trenton,** that—
“ The conduct of the Jerseys has been most infa
mous. Instead qf turning out to defend their
country, and affording aid to our army, they are
making their submission as fast as they can. If
the Jerseys had given ns anv support we might
have made a stand at the Havensack, and after that
at Brunswick; but the few militia tliat were in
arms disbanded themselves, and left the poorrem
nant of an army to wake the best we could of it.* 1
One reads at this time such a record with amaze
ment. Bnt the Democracy of this State and city
are making themselves a similar record—a record
that will be preserved; history will tell of it. And
fifty years hence the young men of the country
will read with equal amazement that w hen the Gov
ernment was fighting the slaveholders’ rebellion,
men were found in Illinois who were not outne
side of 4bc Government. If I could presume to
hope that any word oractof mine relative toevents
now transpiring would be remembered by the gen
eration of 1000, my prayer would bo, to be classed
among those who, w hen the Union was assailed
by armed rebellion, were faithful to the trust Im
posed by the patriots of 177 C. [Applause.]
It is already known what side issues we shall
have to meet. That shameless organ of treason,
the Chicago Timex, is good at getting np false
issues. It tried thenegro Immigration humbug last
full, and perhaps it will try it again. Bnt that
is now pretty well understood. The Democracy
told the people then that if the Republicans suc
ceeded, Chicago would swarm with negroes, and
that white men would be crowded out of their
work. It basbeeu seen how false was the prediction.
There is another thing on which an issue may be
raised—an issue that delights a traitor. It is the
Conscription act. Bnt that issue, if raised,will soon
play itself out. The Conscription act is just and
ncci eeary. There will be no draft under it before
next fall or winter, and not then. If the people by
their moral and social influence, and by their votes,
entourage the army already in the field, and sup
port the President and his Cabinet. By every con
sideration, therefore, ©(patriotism, reputation and
safety, it is the duty and interest of the people to
vote for Union war candidates at the coming elec
tion.
. Tin re is, really, Imt onc'lssno. Are yon for the
Union or_ against it! If men are right on this one
question, so far as the country is concerned, they
are right in oil respects. A man may have as
■numynotions as be pleases on a variety of political
topics. He need not say ho is a Republican—he
need not say he is not a Democrat. For myself, I
neverprofessed to bo the formerand the Timet says
1 am not thelattcr. [Laughter.] But my faith is that
t*o Admirably summed tip hy Gen. Franz Sigelin the
closing paragraph of his recent letter to the last
great Union meeting In New York, It Is this
“ I believe in the Monroe doctrine. In the Butler
code. In the President’s Proclamation, in the good
will and perseverance of the people. In the un
daunted courage of our volunteers, in the final
vindication of the honest, the just and the brave;
in the liberation of the down-trodden and the
slave, and in the overthrow and death of the
Southern Oligarchy; 3 ’ [Cheers and cries of good,
good.] ‘ Those arc my sentiments couched
in the language of fervent iiatriotlsm.
Now is no time to falter. The opera
tions of the army during the Spring
will do more than prove our strength, they win
show, the enemy’s weakness. With the improved
tone of popular feeling all over the country; with
tbebctterolsciplinc oronrtroopa.and more skill
ful disposition of them over the rebellious districts;
with Treasury notes appreciating thirty-eight per
etht.ln ten days, and as a consequence with the
credit of the Government that much higher, the
prospect brightens hourly. The people are able
and resolved to maintain the Government, and to
preserve the potional Territory to the utmost inch;
and if slavery shall perish, why, that will bean
event for good men to rejoice over through all the
generations that arc allotted unto man.
Ths able address was well received, many por
tions being enthusiastically chccrcd.
The Constitution and By-Laws were read by S.
K. Dow, and on motion of C. H. Hath, adopted
unanimously.
On motion, all the loyal papers in Chicago were
requested to publish the Constitution and By-
Laws.
The meeting was addressed by Hon. Jo. Enox,
J.K.C. Forrest, Esq., Peter Shimp, Esqt, and E.
A. Stores, Esq., but the crowded state of our col
umns prevents the publication of even an abstract
of them, all of which were able, eloquent, and well
timed.

REPORT OF THE LECTURE COMMITTEE.
To the President and Executive Committee of
the Young Men's Christian AssociationYoar
Committee on Lectures beg leave to submit for.
your consideration andapproval the following re*
port:
Although the lecture season is generally con*
sidcrcd as closed at this period of the year when
our annual elections occur,; yet i immediately
upon our introduction to office, one year ago. our
labors commenced with the management of the
lectures which were given by Wendell Phillips
with so'much success. These were soon lollowcd
by two lectures given by the lion. Edward Everett,
and one by Rev. w. G. Brownlow. The engage
ment for Mr. Phillips was made by Chas. H. Bam,
Esq., the able Chairman of the Lecture CommittGC
of the previous year; and your Committee
take great pleasure in acknowledging this
valuable assistance. The net receipts of the
lecture by Mr. Brownlow, amounting to abont |COO
were given to him. During the Summer and Pali
yonrcommittcc were in correspondence with the
most eminent lecturers in the country, and with
many prominent statesmen, intending to organize
a fttllconrsc of lectures for the Winter, in accord
ance with the usual custom ©four Association,
but the gentlemen with whom wo conferred de
clined to make, so long in advance, any positive
engagements to lecture, owing to the disturbed
condition of our country, and your committee were
obliged to abandon the hitherto-profitablo plan of
selling season tickets, from the fact that they were
unable to aunounce the names of the lecturers.
The plan then adopted by yonr committee was to
procure such talent as their best efforts would en
able them, introducing lectures at irregular inter
vals. The result Is that your committee procured
lectures from the following gentlemen, viz: Bon.
C. M. Clay, G. W. Pcttcs, O. F.Train. L. F. Tasitro,
It. W. Emerson, four lectures by J. B. Gough,
and two Readings by James E. Murdock, making
eleven in all. During the period in which these
eleven lectures were riven, your Committee found
•that instead of having the entire lecture field to
themselves, their competitors were both numerous
and active, there having been given during that
period seventy-three lectures. Independent of the
eleven lectures given under the auspices of the As
sociation. Yet we congratulate the Association
upon the fortunate result of our year’s labors,
which is shown by the following statement:
Gross receipts for lectures during the year, $4480.63
“ expenses “ •* 2902.01
Net receipts “ " ’ “ $1581.65
To which may be added the SOOO donated to Par
son Brownlow.
Wo find upon examination of the former re
ports of the lecture committees that, with one
or two exceptions, the income to -the
Association from lectures has been great
er during' our year than at any other
time in the history of our Association, your com
mittee desire to acknowledge the many favors
shown them.by thegenllcmen connected with the
press. They also take pleasure In recognizing the
valuable aid rendered them by our worthy Presi
dent, G S. Bowen, in obtaining the services of
John B. Gough, and in assisting in the manage
ment of the four lectures given oyMr.Gough. To
the gentlemen who acted as ushers at those lec
tures wc feel under great obligations. In conclu
sion, your committee deeiroto notice the fact that
the incoming board are likely to derive no small
benefit from our labors in the profits which may
result to the Association from the prospective en
gagement for lectures from the Hon. John Went
worth, the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, and the dis
tinguished Irish orator. Mason Jones.
All of which is respectfully submitted.

RETORT Or LIBRAHT COMMITTEE.
The report of the Library Committee made by
German williams, Esq.. after detailing the efforts
made to obtain books kept out overtime, gives the
following statement: whole number of volumes in
library. March 23d. 1863,8.029; added by purchase,
678; addcdbybindlng,l3o: total, 8.732. Expen
ditures as follows: amount paid current year for
volumes purchased by the last Board, $333.13*
volumes purchased this year, $573.10; stationery
and priming, $82.30; librarian’s salary, $600; to
tal, $1,337.43. ’
Among the works purchased tho current
year, your committee desire to call attention to a
valuable acquisition of State papers, which are as
follows: Niles Register, 49 volumes; American
Archives and State Papers, 25 volumes; Early
Diplomatic Correspondence, 19Volumes; Journals
of Congress from 1774 to 1816, and others of later
date, 20 volumes; Secret Journals of Congress;
Debates in Congress, covering the entire Nullifica
tion Question.
Many of these works arc not to he found even in
some of the best libraries of our country. The
supply was always limited, and at this day it is very
rare that an opportunity is offered of procuring
them.
Daring the current year, the Executive Commit
tee suhmittedto the Association a proposition to
create a “Library Fund.” and the suggestions of tho
committee were carried into effect, by tho passage
of by-laws, at a special meeting of the Association
held May Sd, 1862, providing that all moneys here
after received from life memberships, or from do
nations, be conveyed to and vested in trustees, and
by them funded. George Maalcrre, Thomas B.
Bryan and Elisha S. Wadsworth, were constituted
a Board of Trustees for that purpose.
By this action, for the first time in tho history of
the Associations permanent and separate fund has
been sequestered lor the benefit of the Library—a
fund which will accumulate and Increase la impor
tance with the lapse of years.

The Clerical Further Dc-
Tciopmcnlfl
In our notice of the close of the argument upon
the bill for an injunction In the Hager case pub
lished In the Tjubune of Saturday, the typea made
us say that the court rendered ” its decision. It
should haved read, of course, “ reserved ” the de
cision.
Thc following letter from Her. William A. Flske,
Hector of Grace Church, Cleveland, Ohio, will he
read with intercut. It is proper to state In this
connection, that Mr. Hager nevcrreccived the let
ter alluded to as having been written by Mr. Flsto
at the direction of Mrs. Everett, This is the first
letter be baa everrecclvedfromthatqaarter:
Cleveland. March 25,1803.
Eev.E.W. Hager: I sent yon a month or more
ago a letter which I wrote at the dictation of Mrs.
Kvcicit. Mrs. Everett came to me as her pastor,
and desired me to write to yon, expressing her
conviction of yonr entire innocence.- The
letter was written at her dictation. She was sit
ing by my side as I wrote, and I
wrote as she desired. You have not answered
that letter nor acknowledged its receipt,
though to me It seemed a very Important one. She
strlcd In that letter that she was with you and the
ladies, during all the time In which you wero said
to have been guilty of improprieties; that nothing •
of the kind could have occurred without her knowl
edge, and that she was certain that nothing of the
kind did occur. She farther stated that the ladies
subsequently treated yon with the utmost kind
ness and cordiality, and that when you left for Chi
cago the ladies who now accuse you, went oat to
the carriage with yon, and bade you
good-by In the most unconstrained and
cord'al manner. She furtheretated that, In conver
sation abontyou and after you were gone, nothing
was said derogatory to your moral character. She
further stated that the lady who made the chief
charge was intending to visit Cleveland this last
fall or winter, and that. In a correspondence which
ensued, yonr name was not mentioned in a derog
atory maimer. She said the lady In question actu
al y started to make this visit in Cleveland, but,
while on her way. stopped in Chicago at Mr. Wil
liamson 6—l think his name Is—thcßisbop's Chap
lain, and then, instead of proceeding to Cleveland,
relumed home again.
She said it looked to bo like a conspiracy to rnin
yon, bat she could not understand how the ladies
became involved in it.
Let me know whether you received that letter.
You ought to remember me, for I used to be loca
ted near to vou In New Hartford, Oneida County,
New Y’ork.
Faithfullyvonrs,
William Allen Fisks,
Rector Grace Cbnrch, Cleveland. Ohio.
P. S.—Mr. Everett has lately been In Chicago,
and saw the Bishop, I believe. My own belief is.
that somebody, for purposes of lus own, has sold
to those ladles that Mr. Hager spoke disrespectful
ly of them, and they, in revenge, have been induced
to make these charges against Mr. Hager.
We arc informed that Rev. John Wilkinson, the
Bishop’sChaplain, has Instituted,or Is about to In
stitute, a suit for libel against the Stoning Jour'
not for personal strictures against him in an edito
rial alledlng that the men Pcrrigo and Lawrence
were guided to Mr. Hager’s study upon the night
of the assault, by him. The Clerical Imbroglio
promises to he prolific in business for the lawyers,
and to develop any quantities of side issues.
The following affidavit of Sebastian L. Everett,
hasalo made its appearance in tho case, which be

State of Michigan, County of 1,.
Wayne, City of Detroit. j w *
Sebastian L. Everett, being duly sworn, doth,
upon his oath, say as follows:
Whereas, a certain card published In the Chi
cago Tribune, dated January 28. 1863, has bedn
construed into a denial of the truth of certain
charges made against tho Rev. E. N. Hager, I
hereby declare that said card was written under
excitement caused by statements of one of-Mr.
Hager’s counsel, which statements I am informed
and believe, are in part unauthorized, and so rep
resented that I was mislead by them. So far from
being ready to deny the truth of tho charges
against Mr. Hager, I now know that they are of
such a character that from the nature of the cir
cumstances neither myself nor my wife could dis
prove them. S. L. Everett.

Destructive Fire Inthe Nortli Division.
The alarm of fire, at twelve, Sun*
day morning, was caused by the partial burning
of the large factory of the well known trunk ma
ker, John Garland, corner of Sedgwick street and
Chicago avenue.- The factory was an immense
five story brick structure, with a three story brick
ell reaching back to an alley. In the rear of this
ell was located the boiler, engine room, die-press,
and other machinery for preparing the iron-work
for trunks, valises, &c. The fire was probably
kindled near the partition between the main
building and the ell; and the incendiary must
have prepared kindling for the purpose, as there
were no shavings or combustible materials about
the building, except boards which were
carefully piled up. We are assured by
Mr. Garland and by the hands, that all
the shavings and saw duet are carefully
removed from the entire building before dark
every afternoon, and the cleanly appearance of the
floors throughout the building shows this to have
been the case on Saturday. As the building was
tightly closed, the fire had burned for some time
before it was discovered, and when the alarm
was given, it bad spread throughout the lower
portion of the entire building. The steam
ers arrived promptly, but owing to the great
height and extent of the building, could uot stop
the fire until'it had destroyed tho machinery and
greatly damaged the stock In tho lower gtorics; the
leather, trunks, &c„ In the upper stories were
also much damaged by smoke and water. The
stock on hand, lumber, «fcc., was very extensive,
and was valued at $25,000, upon which there is an
insurance of $15,000. It is probable that the en
tire loss upon stock and building will reach at
least $35,000. The proprietors arc confident it was
the work of an incendiary.
Another.— The department were called out
about 5 o'clock Sunday afternoon, to extinguish
the fire in a small frame dwelling on S ate street,
between Harrison and Taylor, which was accom
plished with but slight damage.
Canal Convention Resolutions
At the regular session of the Board of Trade on
Saturday. I. T. Munn, Esq., offered the following

Whereas, At amceting of the Mercantile Asso
ciation. Board of Trade and citizens of Chicago,

constantly increasing commerce; and
Whereas, We learn with regret that the State
Committee have postponed the time of their depar

llocUcdy That the Committee appointed under
the above recited resolution, be requested, at as
early a day as practicable,to proceed to Canada,and
lay before the commercial nnd political represent

named Charles Davis and Charles Hendricks were
brought before United States Commissioner Hoyne
Saturday morning, on the charge of robbing the,
post-office at Oquawka, Illinois, on the night of
the loth of March, of postage stamps to the amount
of $250, Internal Revenue stamps amounting to
SCCO, about $lO in money, several mail bags, &c.
In addition, letters were opened, and general
havoc made in the office. The accused were sus

James Hatcher was also taken in custody at the
same time, hut was subsequently taken to lowa on
a requisition from the Governor of that State on a

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL.
THE MOSEY MARKET.
Sattt.dat Evening, March 23,1663.
The first part of the week was characterized by
anxiety aud panic among operators, caused by the
heavy and rapid decline in gold. Values based
upon [email protected] for gold were unsettled, and, of
course, business for the moment suffered. But of
course, the result is healthy, and there is abun
dant room for a still larger decline. Prices are
yet largely fictitious, and though it were safer
that the return to nearly the coin standard bo
gradual, sooner or later it must come. On this
subject wo are permitted to copy the following ex
cellent letter from aleadlng banking house In New
York to their correspondents In this city;
New York, March 21th, 1863.
DearStr: We have received your favor of tho
20tb March with enclosures for collection, and
credit your account, drafts $17,7C0-55. Your gold
• checks (two) of $5,000 each have been paid by us
to day. The present remarkable decline in gold is
thought to be attributable to a combination of
causes, amongwhich arc: The late excessive taxa
tion on transactions in gold by Congress; the pro
posed further action of our own Legislature in the
same direction; the remarkable aud unexpected
case of our Government in its finances, equal, in
its moral influence on the war, to a great victory ;
the possibility of the Government getting control
of the gold market by a foreign loan; the actual
existence of a limited foreign demand for Govern
ment securities; a very great stagnation of trade
with our importers, causing diminished demand
for sterling; andlastly,a mure united feeling re
garding the prosecution of the war to its glGriGuS
issue. “ The Union forever, one and inseparable,"
to which our banks and coiporations seem to be
co-operating, by a willingness to put down the
price of gold. Yours very respectfully,
*•*
To-day gold ia firmer and considerably higher
than it was yesterday. According to private dis
patcher, it opened in New York at and dosed
at 1-13. The transactions of the day here were
based almost entirely on the first report, at 140.
Bankers are still cautious, and will not follow very
closely the Wall street figures.
The price of silver wgs 125®150. Only a few of
the brokers were willing to pay the upper figure.
Old Treasury Notes arc about out of the mar
kit. Quotations the eamc as gold. New nominal
—M buying, selling K<2#—the higher figure for
bills of smaller denomination.
The only quotation we heard for Indiana State
Bank was 102. Probably [email protected](M could still be ob
tained. It is believed it will soon be simply par
funds.
New York exchange is close, decidedly so. Only
customers obtain a supply at tbe current rate,
viz., Outsiders are charged li&X, and to
wards the close they might congratulate them
selves if they obtained a supply at that. We note,
as usual, one bouse supplying customers at K«
The buying price is **, and customers earnest.
The general money market is close. Bankers
loan cautlonsly, and only to best customers, with
undoubted collaterals. Navigation must soon
open, when large shipments may be confidently
expected, and in a few weeks an cosier money
marketwill doubtless be the result.

The total receipts of Beef Cattle at all the yards
for the week ending to-day, amount, according to
the daily receipts posted on ’Change, to 0,452 head.
This is 1,194 more than last week, and 1,739 more
than the coresponding week of last year.
Notwithstanding that the supply is some twelve
hundred head more than last week, this has been
the best week that the drovers have seen since
1857. TbeNewTork and Albany markets have
been more satisfactory, than the most sanguine
expectations of the drovers dreamed of. They are
jolly; they feel good. The excitement noted In
our last review, great as it was, does not begin to
equal that of this week. Fabulous profits have been
realized, and such Is the faith in the prospect of
still higher prices, that several droves changed
bands two orthreo times during the 9ay, giving a
good profit to the seller each time. One transac
tion in particular Is worthy of record. A drover
by the name of Bundle, had a drove of 60 head
choice shipping steers on the Burlington road en
rcute for Chicago. While at Monmouth he disposed
of them to a fellow-drover by tbe name of Chap
man, for *2CO profit He brought them to this mar
ket and sold them to the well-known firm of Mor
ris, Binneman & Walxell, at a further profit of
S2CO. They in turn resold them to a speculator for
anotherprofitof S2OO, and the last purchaser re
fused $l5O for his bargain. We might cite many
instances of a similar nature. Several of the ship
pers and speculators went out to the junction to
meet the early stock train, and purchased heav
ily, before the drovers were “posted” on the
market. Tbe stock on being unloaded at the yard
sold readily—the speculators in some instances
making a profit of Jfc.
The arrival of every train was the signal for the
wildest possible excitement. Down rushed the
shippers land speculators to the care, and in less
than five minutes every bullock on .the train
Changed hands. The government contractors, not
feeling disposed to operate at the advancing prices,
held hack, but seeing the stock slipping through
their fingers, they made a virtue of necessity and
“went in”—their operations being necessarily
limited and confined to common grades. This
rampant excitement necessarily caused the market
to rule irregular, andpriccs ranged higher;
hut the hulk of the sales indicate an advance of
from over the prices of this day week.
There was nothing sold under 3„Vc and the num
ber that sold below 4c was very small. To use tbe
words of a prominent dealer: “ Anything what’s
got a hide on, will bring 4c.” The market closed
firm not a hoof being left over unsold.
