Colby Claims £50,000 Damages
From Hamsey.

R octet, ron Libel—Bbtet Rebuke or the
Facts.—The case of W. F. Colby vs. Julian S.
Rumecy, for libel, tried before Judge Gary, on Frl
-day and Saturday of the past week, is so identified
'with the history of the city government, that In
■connection with a sketch of the trial, wc propose to
give a brief resume of the facts out of which It
• arose.
R appears that in IS6B there existed In Chicago
sbnsincseaeßodationby the name of the Chicago
Stone and Coal Mining Company, whose teams
were obliged to make large use of the street called
the' Western Avenue. This Western Avenuebeing
in ft somewhat heavy condition, the company do
ored to have it paved, and procured the passage of
an ordinance for paving it at tile city's expense—
contracted under the ordinance todo the work, and
■Wilhinlhofiret two weeks after its passage, had
Actually accomplished a little of it. In that tatcr
- vat however, the Council smelt something, which
1 led them to repeal the ordinance at the regular
meeting, Immediately succeeding the one which
adopted it. The work on Western Avenue, how
ever, being for the interest of the C. 8. &, G. M.
suspended by the repeal of the ordi
nance. . The company went on and completed It,
- fjp(i ilht -riwiTiiftd fiat the cost of the work should
bemadeuptothemby the city, a claim which the
xity was not swift to recognize.
- * In the dispute concerning this claim, Julian M.
Rumsey, Mayor, and 6. D.Ward, Comptroller of the
Cirr, in 1860, who treated the demand ns spurious,
became especially repugnant to William P. Colby,
« member of the C. C. & S. M. Co., and one of the
Common Council for that year, who was working
yaj hard to have the claim allowed.
We do not intend to do anything more than hare
- 3y allude to the fight among the city officials grow
ing partly out of political, and partly ,
■ont of personal motives, of which Comp- i
trailer Ward was the central figure, in 3863, nor to
the tedious investigations and counter investiga
tions that were made by the Common Council. It
will be remembered that among these “investiga
tions" was one in which Alderman Colby made
• umscir especially active, founded upon the state
ments of a paper purporting to be signed by one
Smart, who bad been a member of the city police
under John Wentworth, but which was shown to ;
be the production of a Mr. Flint, formerly -editor ;
of the Chicago T/emneraf. This paper virtually ac
cused the Comptroller with beta" a defaulter to the
citv. and with covering his defalcation with ficti
tious pav-rolls, and pretended to detail a con
vereatlon between Ward and Wentworth dur
jnjT the mayoralty of the latter, in which the
Comptroller confessed his defalcation, and the mode
be had used to conceal it. The statements of this
T«ipcr were made the subject of special andpro- •
tracled investigation by a committee of the Com
mon Ooundl. with a view to Ward’s removal, ta the
conrac of which, and the Colby investigation,which .
followed it, the handwriting and signature of the i
*• Smart paper” were shown to be forgeries, ana its
contents unmitigated falsehoods. ■
It was atjhe dose of the former of these investl
‘ sations that Mayor Rumsey addressed to the Coun
cil the communication on which the present suit .
forlibdls founded. This communication was as
follows. jj ATOT ,. g Chicago. Nov. 7,1863.
Gentlemen of the Common Council: Ibellevcthat
Alderman Colbv, in connection with Messrs. A, C.
EUilhorpe and C. C. Flint, and perhaps oth
«rcr persons, have been endeavoring to have
the Comptroller removed from office for the follow
ing reasons, vis: thinking that they would be bet
ter able to swindle the city on some old claims
which thev pretend to hold acainst it, and that they
miefat enufr a personal animosity against him,
probablv originating tathe fact that they would not
nay such claims.
In the endeavor to accomplish this object it was
Suite evident to those hearing the evidence before
ic investigating committee that forgery and per-
Joivwerebothmsdcuscot. As, however, bat one
of the parties is a dtv official, 1 shall leave the
Cifind Jury to deal with the rest, and proceed to
the consideration of tho case of Alderman Colby.
And X now charge Alderman Colby:
1. With entering into a conspiracy to injure the
character of a prominent financial city official by
making so-called chargee against him, thereby en
deavoring to procurable removal, behenng that
the so-called charges were false when bo made
Bum, andbv so doing deliberately Injuring the
goed name and financial credit of the city, which
as an Alderman he is bound to protect.
? With using improper means to induce other
Aldermen to vote for such removal before be or
others had intended to make such charges.
r. That by misrepresentation he induced other
Aldeimcn to sign a recommendation to have
a certain claim paid, belonging to Ellithorpe and
Colbv. against tne city amounting to $6,000, for
tnrcscUmlzlng Western avenue, knowing at the
time that he would be swindling the city If he suc
<ecd«Un getting it paid. .. , . ,
4. Acting dishonestly (having said last named
cbim to be unjust) ta endeavoring to sell or hy
pothecate it to innocent parties.
£. With selling an estimate to an innocent party,
Issued by the city to EUitborpc and Colby for work
■done on West Randolph, amounting with interest
when sold to about nmc thousand dollars, the
having to his knowledge been paid by the
Citv more titan a Tear before he sold It.
O. With acting dishonestly ta many ways ta mat
ters relating to the dry government daring the
■time that helms been Alderman, which an investi
gation into the facts will show.
As it is doubtful whether a committee has the
light to -sutowns witnesses and compel them to
answer questions, I respectfully suggest (that as
the Common Council has the power 1) that yon ap
point some early time to investigate these charges
with a view If they be found to be true to a suf
ficient extent to justify such action, to expcllAl
doinwn Colbv from this body.
Out of this communication of the Mayor to the
Common Council, arose two Judicial, or quasi judi
cial investigations. One of them was the inquiry
by the Council into the truth of the charges thus
preferred by the Mayor, an inquiry occupying
oomc four months, and a verbatim report of which,
wse it not 'made by Hitt, tire celebrated steno
grapher, and is it not, complete in live hundred
pages, to be had at the Mayor's office, for the ben
efit of all enthusiasts ta this description of liters
,UTbe other one was the suit of Colby rv. Ramsey ■
for libel, brought in the Superior Court some two
years ago, andtried before Judge Gary on Friday
* Saturday.
In this case plaintiff based his declaration in
libel on the words of the two introductory para
graphs of the Mayor's communication, and not
«n the language contained ta the specific charges
themselves, the tarter undoubtedly foiling within
the class of privileged communications.
To the declaration defendant pleaded only the
general issue.
The order and result of the trial were briefly as
follows: After opening the case to the Jury m a
ehort speech. Mr. Van Boren, conn&cl for the plain-
Bffi offered ta evidence from a certified copy of the
Mayor's communication, the language on which the
plaintiff relied as libellous.
lie then produced Aid. Cotnlsky nsawitness, who
proved the publication alleged to be libellous, by
tire reading of the communication of the Mayor to
BicCcuncu* and then having refreshed his memory
by a perusal of the printed report of the Colby loves-,
tfcauon, before spoken of, testified to certain
statements of defendant made under oath before
the council, during that investigation, relating to
conversations between defender::, members or the
Connell and othere, held before the investigation
«poken very freely of Colby's character and panic
tdarij offals connection with the claim for Macada
mixtac Western Avenue, characterizing the latter
as a rascallv transaction, and Colby himself as a
rascal and a* scoundrel. This testimony was Intro
duced, as counsel for plaintiff alleged, by way of ag
gravation, to prove that defendant ta his communi
cation to the Council was actuated by malice against
defendant attempted to cross-exam
ine the witness with relation to the nature of the
transactions to which defendant, while speaking
of plf»lr tlff ‘, had reference, and thus rebut the pre
. ermption of malice, by showing that the language
was such as any honest man would naturally apply
to transactions of rfa** description. But the Court
- ruled such a course of examination to be Inadmiss
ible. The defence was, however, permitted tota
‘ trcdcceta evidence, the entire statements and con
versations of the dclcndant, so for as they were
eltowuliythe aforesaid printed report, of which
the witness, on his examination in chief, had testi
fied to a part, not, however, as port of thecoatcuts
of the report, but as the statement of tho witness
Comtaky. with his recollection refreshed, as afore
sa'd. by Ita perusal. Upon this proof
plaintiff rested, and the conned for
defence immediately moved the Court
to instruct the jury to give a verdict for the defend
ant on the ground rhnt the communication from
Bio Mayor to the Council came within the class of
privileged communications, which, in the absence
of proof ot express malice, can famish no ground
let actions of XibrL
They claimed further that this particular commu
nication belonged, under the provisions of the city
charter, to that most privileged class of writings
relating to the initiation of proceedings ta too
nature of judicial proceedings, the authors of which
can only be liable to actions formalidoue prosecu
tion, and not to actions for libel at all.
This question was argued at lenclh by S. W.
Fuller, counsel for the defense in support of the
motion, and Mr. Van Boren ta opposition to to it.
The argument was not completed till yesterday
afternoon, and upon its completion. Judge Gary
Immediately gave the following opinion:
Hie Charter of the <aty in force at the time of the
alleged publication of the supposed libel, provided
in section 8, charter 2, that every person elected to
any office by the people might be removed from
such office by a vote of two-thirds of all the Alder
men authorized by law to be elected. But no offi
cer should be removed except for cause, nor unless
first famished with the chaigcs.andhcard in Us de
fense, and the Common Council should have power
to compel the attendance of witnesses and the pro
■ dnetion of papers, when necessary for the purposes
of ench trial, and should proceed within ten days
to hear and determine upon the merits of the case.
By chapter ft of the some charter the
Mayor was required to take care that the laws of
the State and ordinances of the city were duly en
forced, respected and observed, ana from time to
time to give to the Common Council each informa
tion and recommend such measures as he might
deem advantageous to the city.
The plaintiff was an Alderman and the defen
dant was Mayor of the city and the publications al
leged, were, find. In showing to Mr. Ayer, the cor
poration counsel, for hi s professional advice, and
. Sen In presenting to the Common Council the com-
Tnmi'cation continuing the supposed libellous mat
. ”**rhc court held that whatcvermlghthethcrnleor
measure of the responsibility of the defendant for
presenting the communication to the Common
CknmcU, would apply also to the showing to Mr.
Ayer, because the latter was preparatory to the
former, and as to tho presentation to the Common
Council it was the institution of a judicial Inquiry,
■before a tribunal expressly authorized by law to
hearand determine the charges, and as such if a
wrong was done for which the plaintiff had any
remedy, It was not ta the present form of action for
libel but an action for a malicious prosecution. 6
John's 680. 21 Wendell’s 825.
That this would have been true if the defendant
had been but a private dtizen of the city, and with
much greater reason was ho protected from this
fflion, it being bis duty to prosecute the
charges if he well believed them to he well found
The Court therefore on the application of the de
fendant, gave the Jury the following instruction;
“Thejniyaro instructed as matter of law that
the plaintiff has failed to make out such a case as
to entitle him to recover in this action and it is
therefore their duty on the case presented to find
the defendant not guilty.”
The verdict of the jury was In accordance with
the instructions.

Attempted Elopement of an Old
Rian of Fifty with a
School Girl.
A Six-Barrelled Argument
lore the Clmrch Boor*
Last summer, it win be remembered, the Chicago
public “turned to plo-nics" as If 'twere second na
ture with them. The excursion ticket admitted all
to the full privilege, and there was no discrimina
tion between old oryoung,ricb or poor. Many were
the lads and lasses that found eeduded shady bow
ers, in which to breathe their first love—this Is ex
pected—looked upon as a natural consequence
growing out of the pic nlc excursion. We may at
most say it was a part of the programme.
• But there was an attachment formed at one of
the later Catholic plc-nlcs which, with its finale, is
nf so remarkable a character that we giro the par
ticulars. In the crowd upon the cars, an old
who Is on the shady side of fifty, who has a rag
store on West Canal street, was thrown into ’ the
company of a bcantlfnl little miss of fourteen sum
mers—a rompingjdayfnl, rosy-checked, school giii,
who had never tested t£p realities of life. The old.
man, attracted by the free, playful, polite manner
cf the little miss, paid her fully as much attention
as would be expected from a fatherly old man to a.
pleasant school girl. She accepted his overtures
and kind acts while upon the grounds and on their
way home, without thinking he meant more than
friendly kindness. .But the matter did not Estop
. here. The bid man had visions of that fair-haired
girl ever before his eyes. "Whether upon the street
or while weighing the rags brought Into his store by
Bie ragged urchins and children from the streets,his
mtad was ever upon the beautiful little girl ho had
snetattfaoplo-nie. But what was to be done 7 Ho
an old rag-buyer, andsbethe budding flower of a
wealthy and Influcdtial family I How could he
dare to ask her hand ta marriage—for that was
what he had determined upon. In one way and
another, without the knowledge of the parents he
gained her society, at divers times and places, ho
lavished presents upon her, and made himself par-
Bcnlarly agreeable to her, and strange as It may
poem, the two were finally engaged to be married,
entirely without the knowledge or consent of her
The day fixed for the ceremony that was to blend
together January and May, was Thanksgiving Day,
at three o'clock in the'afternoon. Ofall this the
family were entirely ignorant, so shrewdly had the
oldman laid bis plana, and so well had the girl
kept her own counsel, even from her parents and
Bat she had paid less attention to her studies
than formerly, and expressed a lively interest ta
the latest styles, which suggested to the parents
that something unusual was occupying her mind.
Her brother, who had been her most intimate com
panion and confidential friend, realized that she
was confiding in another, and that be was treated
with comparative indifference by his sister, who
was as dear to him as his own life, and he deter
mined upon ascertaining the cause. Hence he
closely watched her movements from d&v to day,
saw her walk out, and meet the old man/doubtless
at an appointed time and place. He carefully
watched her throughout her devious course on
the streets, until she returned home. But then be
failed to gain any satiefectory reply as to the ob
ject of her interview with the old rag-man.
In the afternoon of Thanksgiving Day a carriage
drove up before the door oftne residence of Bus
very young lady's parents, and she stepped out of
the door, saving to her mama that “Mr.D—— had
called to ‘take her out riding." The car
riage drove lei surely round two or three
squares, and finally stopped ta front of the
Catholic Church, on the North Side. The
brother, a young man. though unobserved by
the representatives of either January or May, was
on their track, still intent upon protecting nig be
loved sister from any snare. By tbe time the old
man of fifty, and thelnnoccnt little girl of thirteen,
bad alighted upon the sidewalk, preparatory to
their appearance before the hymenial altar,
the whole affair flashed across the young man's
mtad—he could now understand many acta of bis
sister, that bad before been as an enigma to him.
Now he bad a realizing sense of the old man's
intentions, which were nothing less than that of
marrying Jus sister. A desperate disease demands
a desperate remedy—the brother stepped in front
of the old deceiver, as he was approaching the
church door, and presenting a revolver, told him in
language that could not be misunderstood, that if
he did not return his sister to hcrhome,atonce,
Lc would blow him through—that be would sooner
follow his sister to her grave than see her married
to t»jm T The old man began to argue the case—tho
little rate* cried from a sense of fear or exposure, or
both, and as the old fellow still stealthily pursued
bis steps towards the door, he was stopped by the
vermg man, who insisted that he could not take an
ether step, except it be at the peril of hisllfe.
Tbe organ was playing in vain, and ta vain was
the altar lighted up. The trio got into the carriage
together, the brother and sister upon the back
scat, tbe disappointed old lover sitting alone.
Scarcely a worn was spoken on the way from tho
church to the house. Tbe old man looked morose
and sullen; the girl wept bitterly when she real
ized the fatal error which she was about voluntarily
foiling into, and the young man apparently enjoyed
the satisfaction of having saved us sister from the
clutches of one whom he despised. After the
perty alighted from the carriage, the old man took
Horn hie anticipated bride some of the articles of
dress which be had presented to her, and made
• tracks for Us rag shop. *
A Priest in a Bad Way.
He is I> is rolled ibr Lascivious*
A few days ago, a disgraceful affair occurred in
ti.c dty, which, disagreeable as is the mention of
it. wo still consider it our duty to impart to onr
The week before, a well dressed gentleman of
c’ ! gnlficd aspect, entered one of the houses of in
ft,me on South Wells street,and* made tbe acquaint
ance ofthe girls who were boarding there. One of
them, with whom he became especially Intimate,
gave M™ to understand, that she recognized ta him
a preacher of the gospel, which his whole appear,
auce indicated. Her friend denied this accusation,
but informed her confidentially, at the same time
exhibiting visible signs of teraor,that he was a cap
tain ta tbe rebel army, and bad chosen the disguise
of a clergyman In order to secure himself against
discovery. With this explanation thcgirl was com
pletely satisfied, A few days later, the same gen
tleman returned to the house, and brought back
with him a charming young girl, for whom be en
grged board as a “lady friend" of his; a proceed
ing which excited the Jealousy of bis first conjt
dunto. She believed herself to have a sort of first
ftnitn upon the would-be Captain of tbe Southern
cluvalrv, and when all her attempts to attract his
attention were fruitless, meditated revenge. She
vvas on good terms with a policeman, to waosi she
confided the circumstances and confession of her
faithless lover. He made his observations accord
inuiv, and on a beautiful moonlight night, onr hero
aid his lady lore were arrested at the door of the
bouse, just as they were taking a moat affectionate
leave of each other. The pretended Southern cav
alry official was in the utmost apparent consterna
tlon. After he had exhausted hfe stock of persuas
ion upon the iron firmness of the policeman, he
ot.ered him $5500 ta greenbacks to let him and the
girl go, but this last attack upon the official was ro
relied with indignation, and the guilty pair taken
to the Armory. Another secret policeman whose
ffjnily accurate memory is the horror of all crimi
nals, thought that he had sccft our hero in a pul
pit, and it was determined to take him to a prelate
ofthe dty, in order, if possible, to identify him.
This was accordingly done, and theprclate, who
steads deservedly high ta the Roman Catholic
Church in this city, recognised ta tho Southern
cavalry officer, a brother u the same
who had thus foully disgraced his sacred profes
»ion and calling. It is unnecessary to say that
the offending priest was immediately degraded
from his office, and to-day sustains no other rela
tions to the Church he has disgraced than those of
a layman.
Xlie laflUu*Flanlgan Homicide.
Sentxkcx Pronounced bt Judge Van H. Hig
gins, ik tbb Case or Tnoxis Laflxv.—Wc have
already stated the Acts connected with tho indict
ment of Thomas Laflin for the murder of Patrick
llannlgan In tho Switch House of the M. S. B. 8.,
on the night of the 14th of last April; the plea of
n.anslaughtcr put in by the prisoner to.the indict
ment, and its acceptance by the State Prosecutor.
Cur readers will remember that Laflin stabbed Han
nlgan in a fight, which arose out of a dispute con
cerning the merits of a railroad engineer, and after
(as says) Hannlgan had struck him with a
lantern. Yesterday Laflin was brought before the
court, and the sentence of the law was pronounced
by Judge Van H. Higgins as follows:
Yon have been indicted by a. Grand Jury of the
county for the crima of morder—the highest crime
known to the law. If you had been convicted of
that crime, then the duty of the court would have
been much more painful than it now Is. In each
ccee. Instead of the imnishmcnt which you are now
to receive, yon would have been condemned to be
banged by the neck until yon were dead. In con
secration of your former good character, the States
«:torney and the Court have consented to accept
Uom yon a plea of guilty, of manslaughter. Ton
l.arenot denied, anuyon could not deny that you
b.Ued Patrick Flannagan. You cruelly took faia
life; sent him to his final account, wholly unpre
pared, with all his sins npon his head. It is true
»v this, the Court admits that yon bad no premedi
tated design to kill Flannagan. If that design had
existed In your breast it was murder, and by the
laws of God and man, you should die.
But the humanity of the laws is so great, that
where there Is even a doubt as to tho intentions of a
criminal .he is entitled to the benefit of ench a
oonbt, That principle of the law has saved you
fiom the gallows.
But notwithstanding you did not intend to kill
} lannagan, yon need a dangerous and deadly wea
) on, and stabbed him to tho very heart.
You used that weapon In such a way as to indi
cate that you were intending to wound him in a
iems If not fatal manner. You thereby commit
ted a great crime, and it Is only the provocation
under which yon are charitably supposed to have
acted, and your former good character, that have
saved yon from tho gallows. Probably no one re
grets, more tlum yourself, the rash and fatal act—
nud 1 have no doubt if you could recall the deceased
i 0 life, von would give worlds if you possessed
t hem. Von will he punished enough in fni« world.
In vonr conscience, sleeping orwaking, the image
of that mnrdercd man will appear before you; ms
blood which yon wickedly shed will never cease to
try (o you freon the ground—and In another world
von will have to answer for the commission of that
awful crime. But yon must he pimlched-socletv

cides. If men were not punished for the commis
sion of crimes. If examples were not made
of those who kill their fellow men, instead of peace
and security every man would havetogo armed,
and murders would be more frcqnenlthan they now
unfortunate are. No less than three indictments
have been returned formurderatthlstenn of Court,
end a fourth case inquired Into. This Is an alarming
state of society, and it is tho duty of Courts to see
that the law is enforced against this class of
offences. It Is said that it Is the certainty of pun-
J fitment and not the rigor of it that prevents the
commlseion of crime. This may be true, but pun
ishments should not be so light as to encourage
the commission of offences. The Court Is pained
to award so severe a sentence as it feels compelled
to do in this case; bnt a sense of duty is and ought
to be paramount to all other considerations.
The sentence of the Court will be that you be
taken from the bar of this Court to the County
JalL thence, within six days, to bo removed to the
Penitentiary of the State at Joliet, there to be con
fined at hard labor for the space of five years, two
days in each year in solitary confinement.

• Wc gave yesterday morning a brief state*
mbit of the death of this eminent minister and
scholar, at the time of his demise Senior Professor
.of Garrett Biblical Institute, Evanston. Wc learn
that he was aboat 70 years of age, and had been 63
years In the ministry. Few men have occupied a
more conspicuous place in American Method Um.
Six years he spent in South America in missionary
labor. Be was also the pioneer in the establish*
ment of Biblical Institutes for the training of min*
isters in Ms church. He was a profound thinker,
an earnest worker, a devoted Christian, and ft
warm advocate of thorough anti-slavery principles.
Peace to his ashqs I Honor to kis memory.*
Wo learn the funeral service win he held in the
Evanston M. E. Church to-morrow (Tuesday) at
. about JO o'clock, p. m. The time will bo fixed by
the running of the trains, so persons from the city
may go at noon and return. We learn there will be

priate exercises.
The Christian Commission—Bebuko
to tlio Secesli Organ.
The meeting under the auspices of the Christian
Commission,at the First BaptistChnrch on Thanks
giving Bay afternoon, was well attended, and very
interesting. Mr. B. F. Jacobs introduced Mr. K.
A. B run ell, a member of the Christian Commis
sion, Just retvrned from the battle-field of Chiefs
manga, who entertained the audience for aboat an
hour with a simple and unvarnished recital of inci
dents tending to illustrate the good that the Chris
tian Commission is accomplishing In the camps of
onr soldiers. Bis remarks were exceedingly inter
esting, and well received by the audience. He was
followed by the Rev. Mr. Raymond, Chaplain of
the 61st Blinols Infantry, who also related many
. sad incidents of Camp life. He remarked that his
experience was very similar to that related by Mr.
BranelL The Christian Commission, he said, had
a great advantage over army chaplains. The for
mer administered physical as well as spiritual con
solation, paring hfs way with delicacies and little
articles or necessity, for the reception of religious
precepts. Bo spoke of the bravery of oar soldiers
who, when upon short rations, Joked and smiled
over their hard crackers in a spirit of heroism
that was truly grand.
Capt. B. w.Whittle, of the 73d, Ist Board of
Trade regiment, addressed the meeting in a spirit
ed and pungent maimer. He warmly defended the
Sanitary Commission from the attacks of the organ
of Jett Davie. Reports of what the Sanitary Com
mission were doing, through the Northwestern
Fair and other avenues of benevolence, had reached
the ears of the soldiers, and sent a thrill of Joy
.through every heart from one extreme of a camp to
the other, and through every Federal camp. Be
branded the insinuations of the enemies of the
Government that supplies sent through the Sani
tary Commission were systematically diverted
from their course, as wholly false and malicious.
These calumniators of the soldiers' friends
win by and by be called to a terrible
acsotnt for their hostility—the soldiers will he
homeward bound ere long. Does the editor of
the Chicago Times either fight for or pray for us?
No. The speaker was certain that such base at
tempts to decry the efforts of the Sanitary Com
mission would recoil upon the heads of their insti

Ihe largest Contribution to tbe North
Western Pair*
Chicago, Nov. 23,1863.
Editors Tribuki—A brief notice appeared In
yonr columns of yesterday, concerning the award
of the gold watch from R.H. Hoes, Jeweller, of this
city, to the largest contributor to the North West
ern Fair. The incident was so beautiful, and re
flected so much honor on tho principal persons Inter
ested, it seems desirable to call attention to it. Mr.
Hoes donated largely to tho Fair and worked earn
estly. In order to stimulate others, both by exam
ple and (he novelty of the proceeding, he offered a
150.00 gold watch to the largest contributor. As is
v, ill known, gifts came up from all quarters; the
rich gave freely of his abundance, the poor widow
her mite. The People’s President, though onr rep
resentative head, being one of us, donated the
“EmancipationProclamation"tom. It brought
Into our treasury $3,000. By tho gift of T. B Bryan,
Esq.. It now belongs to the soldiers of the Union,
ard is held in trust for them by the Soldiers’ Home,
and is to be the corner stone of a Permanent Home
for disabled Union soldiers—“man proposes but
Gcd disposes.” In the history of this war no more
significant idddent will be written than this—that
In a great loyal and human effort of Northwestern
women, thePeople’s President gave the largest
contribution to the brave boys who have rallied
round him and the flag, and that it has become tho
unexpected privilege, oy his own simple liberality,
of Hr. Hoes to bestow the gift upon the People a
President. No grander illustration of the wonder
ful working or onr republican institution—no
stronger proof of the wide spreading character of
tine benevolence than the present position of the
44 Proclamation of Emancipation at once tho pal-
Isdlnm of liberty and the corner stone of patriotic
benevolence. L.
Fuel for Soldiers’ Families*
A call la made in this and otherpapere fora meet*
iug ofladleft to provide fuel for soldiers’ families,
which is aald to be made “because nobody else
does.” This la not really eo.
The Chicago & Bock island, the Chicago, Bur
lington £ Quincy Railroad, the Chicago & Alton,
and the Michigan Central Railroad Companies have
agreed to bauf coal and wood for 41 The City Mis
sion,” mainly for this purpose, and subscriptions
are being made to purchase the feel. Besides, Al
derman Brown la making efforts with other rail
roads to the same effect. Tho movement on the
Sart of tho ladies la a good and a noble one, I bid
3 cm God speed. The object of this la to correct
thcabove error, and to say there ia sufleringamong
soldiers’ families. My daily visits to the hospitals
bringame In contact with the most needy cases of
families. Recently a soldier’s wife pointed, with
tears in her eyes, to five children she could only
feed, and they had neither shoes, stockings norun
derclothing* Her husband bad been a prisoner in
the Sooth.
Last winter the mission distributed, by tho help
of the “ Camp Douglas Aid Society, 1 * over 800 large
loads of wood and Ju> tons of coal to tho mostneedy
of soldiers 1 wives. We hope to do more this win*
ter.- At the same time, too much cannot bo done
for this worthy doss. At the rates they have to pay
for fuel, wood Is Cir better than coal for them, os
few have grates in their stoves; and some, who
take in washing, find coal not tho best fortheirnsc.

Remarkable Surgical Operation.
The following account of the extirpation of a dis
eased eye, on account of a large abscess in the or
bit, by Dr. Underwood, of this city, will be read
with interest:
George Farrell?, of Kanevllle, Illinois, has been
blind In his left eye for a number of years, and a
short time since, was suddenly attackfd with a dc-
BtructiTC inflammation, which rapidly spread, af
fecting all the structures within the orbit, and
forming a large abscess behind the eye-ball, forc
ing the organ from its socket, and producing dread*
ft] deformity. II allowed to continue, It would
hare destroyed the orbital bones, and thus Involved
the membranes of tbo brain—to avert which, ex
cession of the eye was required. Thopatlcnt being
brought fully under the influence of chloroform,
Dr. Underwood commenced the dissection by dis
uniting the lids externally, by an Incision carried
outwards towards the temple, so as to complely
expose the anterior opening of the orbit, as the
eyeball was greatly enlarged and the surrounding
tissues enormously swollen. A curved needle,
armed with waxed thread was thrust clear through
the eye-ball, from side to side, so that the opera
tor could move the diseased mass in any direction,
during the dissection. The lids now being held
widely apart by the assistant, a double-edged knife
was plunged directly backwards into the orbit, and
the eye and Its tissues separated from the lowo
lid and inferior part of the orbit; next, pulling tbo
eye downwards and Inwards, the incision was
carefully carried along the upper edge of the orbit
In immediate proximity to the brain, and the eye
and its muscles and nerves were divided down to
the very bottom of*the orbit. Dragging the eye
forward, the dissection was completed by cutting
the optic nerve, muscles and blood vessels deep in
the orbit, with strong curved scissors. Much skill
and Judgment Is required to execute each an ope
ration, as the roof of the orbit is naturally as thin
as paper at some points, and an Instrument used
Incautiously may easily penetrate the brain, and
km the patient. The bleeding daring and after the
operation was profuse, hut was checked without
much difficulty. Dr, U. has preserved the eye en
tire, and also has an amhrotype of the patient be
fore the operation, which shows the frightful ap
pearance of the orgam

Chicago and Kansas—To Business
The trade between Chicrgo and Leavenworth

flourishing State is well worth securing, and the
attention of our business men cannot be turned in
a direction which promises more profitable results.
Injudicious advertising has never failed to pay,
and it is the first effort our merchants should make
In Kansas.
Wo can conscientiously commend The Leaven
worth Conservative as the beat advertising me

Testimonial to I>r. B, A J> Hunter, of
88 Si aslilngton Street, cMcago,
To the Editor of tho Chicago Tribune:
Slit;— Some months since, while suffering from
an affection of the longs, I was InducetLat tho sug
f cation of a medical friend, to consult Dr. Hunter,
or more a year previous to this time I was
on invalid, and had employed all the usual means
of relief, even to spending a winter In tho West In
dies, without obtaining any more than very tempo
rary benefit. About tnreo months have elapsed
since I first made trial of inhalation, and! now
have no hesitancy in stating that 1 have obtained
groat benefit from Dr, Hamer’s treatment, (having
gained six pounds of flesh in the last two weeks,)
and feel that It Is my duty to bury allprofessional
selfishness, and promptly and gratefully render
him this public acknowledgement.
• lam clad to see that on every hand the profes
sion are beginning to admit thei meritsi of Inhala
tion, and to pubU&y advocate it in the medical
journals. I have seen enough of Dr. Hunters
practice to know that It Is attended with extraor
dinary success, end possesses the highest claims
to public attention. Similar * results must not,
hcwever. be expected from Inhalation in tho hands
of others who have had little or no experience In
the administration of medicines in this manner.
Indeed, It is to be feared that injudicious experi
ments wIU lead, in many Instances, to injury and
disappointment, rather than benefit; for. simple
as this practice Is, it requires a degree of experi
ence and discrimination, which, unfortunately, the
general practitioner can rarely attain.
Considering that consumption has held its trial
career through all preceding centuries, and that
on the inodes of treatment proposed to the present
have signally failed, to what can the invalid look
for health, if not to inhalation? To mo this seems
the only hope science and o!mraanity have to offer.
The disease will not die out of its own accord; med
icines administered by the stomach cannot reach
it, and 44 change of climate ”is a fallacy upon which
tco many hopes have already been sacrificed.
- The history of the past is but a record of fruit
less experiments; and from beginning to end there
is not one page which onr art can lastly claim as
its own that is not impressed with the seal of
death. Our feelings and hopes have become so
fielrified by disappointment and failure, that now
t requires a strong effort of the will to try to live
when the remedy for onr malady is before us.
Many will wait for their friend’s experience, with
ont acting or even thinking, it woold seem for
themselves. Alas) such are doomed to learn their
own folly in their own fate. While waiting for
others to bo cured, they lose the precious time that
would have saved themselves.
Although long since proposed, it Is only now
th&tlnhaiatiouc&nbeßmdto have been reduced
to a system of practice adapted to the many phases
of pulmonary disease; ana none can deny that to
the judgment, experience and able advocacy of
Drs. B. & J. Hunter, this treatment is indebted for
its introduction into the United States, and for the
high and deserved popularity, both with the pro*
feasion and the public, it has. already attained by
Its success. A few years hence it wQI be regarded
os equal to the brightest discoveries of medical
If I have written earnestly, it Is because judg
ment, what I have observed in others, and what I
have experienced in my own person, all unite to
make me feel that the hopes of the consumptive
are in Inhalation, and that none ought to despair
of recovery, while tho means remain untried.

The general markets to-day opened dull and heavy,
and prices had a downward tendency: but at the close,
owing to more favorable news from the East, there
was a decidedly firmer feeling in almost every article
of Grain.
The Provision market ruled quiet, bat there .Is no
material change to note In prices. There was scarcely
any inquiry for Mess Pork, and the market was dull—
the only sale effected being o lot of 600 brls heavy city
packed at SI7XO. There was some inquiry to-day for
Prime Mess Pork, and we note a sale of 810 brls to-day
at SIIXO. At this figure there are free sellers at the
clqee. Lard was in better Inquiry today, and although
we have no actual Improvement to nolo In prices, there
was a firmer tone prevailing. Today we note sales of
IXOO tres at UHc for prime city steam-rendered Leaf
11K©UXS for prime country Leaf, and 10Hc for No. 1
Lard. The sales at UHc comprised one lot of 1,000 tres
and another of 200 tres. At theclose holders were firm
ct that figure. There was very little done In Meats. A
lot of 100 tres city pickled Hams changed handsatSJfc,
but the demand at this figure Is light. Balk Shoulders
are In good request at SH®3HCi but holders are asking
S”fe. Today we report a sale of SXOO pcs for delivery
in 2fl days at 5Hc loose.
Flour was dull and neglected—buyers and sellers be
ing too far apart to admit of transactions. The sales
today were of a trifling nature, at $7-12H for White
Winter; S4X3H<3SX3 for Winter Supers; ssXs©sXofor
Spring Extras; $1.40 for good Spring Supers; and SSXO;
'GUOfor Bye Floor.
The Wheat market opened dull and easier; but as
soon as the New Tork dispatches were received, it rai
led, and closed firm at yesterday 1 * prices.. Only about
60X00 bu changed bands, at sld2jf for No. 2 Bed Win
ter; SIX6OIX9 for No. 1 Spring; SIXSOIXS for No. 3
Spring; and 96c for Rejected Spring—the market clos
ing firm at SIX 9 for No.* and SIXS for No. S Spring.

There 13 a firmer feeling among the holders of Car
bon Oil* In consequence of an advance In the
East, To-day we note sales of 200 brls in
round lots by wholesale dealers to Jobbers at
4SO4Tc. Owing to the irregularity In the quota
tions given by jobbers for small Iqts to the retail
trade, wc have been compelled to drop them entirely
for the present. The sales reported to-day and during
the past three or four days are actual sales made by
tho wholesale dealers to the Jobbing trade. -The latter
state that the Oils thus sold are 44 wild” brands, aud are
not worth as much as some others; while thesellers of
these oils claim them to bo as good as tho best brands
and Inform ns that they sell almost entirely to city Job
bers, who of course sell them to the retail trade. Oar
readers will therefore see the ridiculousness of onr
quoting Oils to the retail trade at 52c, when the Jobbers
make purchases at 43®i5c. Unseed Oil has advanced
—and we note sales to-day of 23 hrls In one lot at 91,10
for Eaw.

Sattupat, November 28th.—The receipts of Hogs at
the various yards daring the day amount to aboat
22X00, and the entered soles to 27X80, the prices of
which have ranged from $8X505.60, and the bulk of
soles bavo been made at $4X005.00. The business of
another week has drawn to a close, and daring Its
progress n considerably larger number of hogs bavo
been received In this cily and sold than were ever re
ceived or sold during any previous week in Chicago
before. Although the receipts hire been so unprece
dentedly large, Ihtro boa been no difficulty in obtain-,
log customers, and at prices,’too, higher than have
been given—with. the exception of the preceding week
—during the present season. ,’ Our last market dosed
with consideaable flrmeess and activity, at an advance
during the week of 20QS0c. per 100 83. On Monday
and Tuesday of the present week the demand appear
ed quite as attivc, and the healthy tone of themocket
was folly aaprominent as on the previous Saturday.
Boring the following day, however, there was a mark
ed decline both In the demand and firmness of the
market. Shippers found the usual dliflcnlty In trans
mitting stock to Its destination rather increased than
otherwise; the decline In gold; more tfrnn ordinary
dlfflculy in obtaining currency, with tho provision
market generally doll and inactive* all combined to
lessen the demand for hogs, but more especially to re
duce the high prices which bad been given daring the
preceding eight or ten days. The entered sales for
Wednesday, however, amounted to 17,808 hogs,-with a
decline from the prevlocs day of 15020 c. V 100 As*
Boring Thursday and Friday the sales amounted to
27,436, bat at a further decline of froxasCoCOc. odprime
to common bogs. Without any exception, the large
buyers—both packers and shippers—felt that the mar*
ket was too high either for safe or profitable business;
and from the rapidity with which prices advanced
during last week, it was pretty evident that such rates
cotxld sot be maintained, and hence dealers and own
ers conceded the redaction with a far better grace
tmm, under other circumstances, might have been ex*
peeted. To-day there has been considerable activity
in the market, ns Is plainly seen by the large number
of bogs sold- We have perceived no advance upon the
quotations of yesterday, bat the market Is more firm
and buoyant. As the result of the transactions of the
week, compared with the closing prices given on Sat*
nrtluy evening last, wc. note a decline on prime and
extra bogs of BC®loc. VIOO and on medium and
common hogs ofSCdTOc. 100 tts. At the quotations
given above the market closed this evening with con*
eiderable firmness and activity.
