ed, had it not been for a fellow sailor who Jumped
in and rescued him. . •
More Emigrants.—A large party of Nor
wegians, passed through here, on Saturday night,
€n route for Wisconsin and Minnesota. They are
•hardy, intelligent looking class of men, and no
doubt, will prove a valuable acquisition to the
~ Great West,
TMe Enrollment Lists.—The printed en
rollment list* are a'J ready for posting in all the
wards and townships. They will all he displayed
by about Tuesday in prominent places in each dis
trict. Everybody will then be able to -see who's

mittee appointed by the Foard of Supervisors to
wait upon and confer with the Board of Trade and
other bodies with reference to raising money to
pay the bounties on enlistments, win meet the
Board of Directors ou Monday evening, at the reg
ular meeting of the Directors.
Fjbe.—A fire broke out on Friday evening,
about aix a'clock, in a private dwelling si tooted on
the corner of Ontario ard Wolcott streets. The
steam engines Liberty and Atlantic were soon at
the scene and quickly extinguished the flames.
The bonze was occupied or J. E. Clarkson. The
fire originated in a defective fine. The damage
done is estimated at S2OO.
Disorderly Conduct.—The business at
the Felice Court, if not very large, Is at least reafb
sentire. The assessments made upon the unfor
tunate who are unwilling visitors to that Institu
tion arc increasing In amount. Three Individuals
were fined $25 each on Saturday for disorderly
conduct, and one was assessed in $23 and costs for
ficllingliquor without a license.
'Tax Assault on Mb. Kirby.—Mr. Henry Kir

Beroayrot recover. John Daley, bel'evcdto be
one of the assails -ta, in the Police
Oocrt on Satordar for esamfnatioa. bat tbe trial
was deferred till Tuesday next. He was bound
over in tbe enm of % *33 to appear on that day.
Obstructing Sidewalks.—On Saturday
night the Police made a raid on tbe various accu
mulations of bands, boxes, brick-piles which
bare been obstructing the sidewalks for the p

14th Illinois Cavalry.—Wc understand
tbatLt. Col. Jerkins of this regiment—that has
been in the front all the time since it first went to
the field, and has everywhere won imperishable
bonore-hesjuet returned from his regiment in
East Tennessee, for the purpose of affording a few
able-bodied recruits an opportunity to join the
regiment, and has opened a rrci ailing office at La-
Salle. Those who would prefer to go to the field
wiih one of the most efficient and valuable regi
ments, instead of walling to be drafted, and* then
be obliged to go without bounty or premium, will
take notice accordingly,
Judge Williams’ New Bules.—Probably
no more important event has occurred in the his
tory of Cook county jurisprudence for many years
than the adoption of the “new rules'* for the reg
ulation of practice in the Clrtolt Court. The ob
ject of theco rales Is to avoid the perplexity, vex
ation ard delay, the waste of time, money and
patience, which has resulted from the imperfect
eystemieatton of business In oar courts hitherto.
Some of the most experienced lawyers in the city,
who have carefully examined Judge Williams'
■“new rules/’ speak of them in the highest terms,
as admirably adapted to the intended purpose.
Wo commend them to the careful perusal of our
professional readers.
Asbtsted fob Libel.—Moritz Langlofh,
the local reporter of the TeUfrrrtpJi, (German paper)
was arretted cn Saturday afternoon on a charge of
Ilbo preferred against him by 'William Douglas—a
Constable—who believes himself to have been
aggrieved by the publication In that paper of a re
port that the complainant bad acted very naughti
ly at home, and nod suffered temporary confine
ment. Of the truth or falsehood of the charges wc
know nothing; but the gentleman shows a very
sensitive disposition, especially for one whose oc
cupation It Is to arrest others, and may therefore
be reasonably supposed to have gone through that
process whim results la the blunting of the finer
feelings. But perhaps it is libellous to say even
this. We forbear.
Hsutabt Funeral.—The funeral of the
late Captain Henry L. Bowen, company G, 89th
minois Infantry, (better known as the Ballroad
regiment) who was killed by a rifle shot while
storming the rifle pits on Missionary Bidge, at the
recent battle near Chattanooga, took place yester
day afternoon at half-pa s o’clock. The bodrof
the deceased was taken to Bo'cMU hv a special
train on the Milwaukee RaQror.d, escorted by a de
tachment of troop? and a delegation from the
Cleveland Lodge, of which be had been a member.
The deceased commanded a company of the Rail
road Beftioent, recruited by uie Colcauo & ’Mil
waukee Ballroad Company, and was a "highly es
teemed officer.
Adding Insult to Injurt.—On Saturday
sight, a queer specimen of bnmr.nity, named Ham
mond Bqplsh, hailing from Grundy Co, was ar
rested by the police on suspicion of being a rebel
plenipotentiary In disguise. "When taken to the
Station House he told a pitiable story, from which
It appears that he was walking towards the city,
and when he hau got within some three or four
miles of it, he was pounced upon by two thieves,
who knocked him down and then stripped him of
everything—bis clothes, watch and some S3O In
money—leaving him in the condition ofPowers'
‘•Greek Slave." hot a Utile better off than a full
dressed Georgia Major, whose uniform Is said to
consist of a palrof fpure and a paper collar. Short
ly after be was overtaken by a kind-hearted far
mer, who cave him an old brown suit, with which
he made me way into town, when the police added
insult to injury by arresting him for a scceah. He
was discharged and immediatelr took hisdepar
partnre forborne, a eadder if not a wiaerni-u.
lAtdlra’ Belief Society.—Permanent Or*
ganlznllon—Election of Officers.
An adjourned meeting of ladies friendly to the
establishment of a Society for Providing for Sol
diers' Families, was held at the War Committee
Dooms, cn Saturday afternoon. The meeting was

Theforcromcartidcawere read, dtscursedand
Adopted. The Ily-Lawß, firing the regular day of
meeting, wifi be considered at the next meet
rsnaciKXKT omcEßs.
On motion, an election of permanent officers of
the Society was held, which resulted as follows:
President—Vs*. A. H. Boee.
Viet iYwkfenf—Hr»- E.L Tinkham.
Secretary —Sirs. C. A. Lamb.
Ttttuurer— Mrs. H. D. Smith.
jSzacvflre Cormnilfee—Mrs. A.H. Hoge, Mrs. £.
L Ttokham, Mrs. C. A. Lamb, Mrs. H. D. Smith,
Mr*. Ebon Higgins. Mrs. D. P. Livermore, and
Mrs. Goodrich.
One of the ladies present, remarked that while
sollcittog for the Permanent Soldiers Borne, she
hod been asked why it was that so many persons
connected with these Institutions are employed,
and most be paid salaries.
In reply ft was very properly stated that the
amount of business to be transacted m connection
with ILc Sanitary Commißrion, and with some de
partments of tbc Soldiers Borne, is so arduous,
so constant and important, that no slip-shod way
ofdologtbose dalles will answer. Is or can any
person or act of persons be relied upon
to volunteer to give the time and atten
tion required, without some compensation. Men
and women who give all or even half tbotr time to
an object, as a matter of burin ess, must bs paid
for it. Draymen or expressmen will not convey
articles from one point to another without pay.
When wc con And men and women who can live in
Chicago without cost, then we may expect them
to work for nothing. “The laborer isworthvof
bis hire,” and a person who Alls 'a responsible
position, and devotes Lie or her time faithfully,
should receive a proper compensation.
After dlßcusßlon.it was decided as very impor
tant for the accomplishing of the objects of the
Society, that a reliable, competent lady should be
who should have constant charge
of the Depositary, to become acquainted with the
liocecalty and requirements of the Soldiers* Fami
lies, &c.
On-motion, the selection of a proper person, and
the Axing of a salary, was assigned to the Execu
tive Committee, who are to report the same, (or
the sanction of the Society, at the next meeting.
On motion, it was decided that the pastors ofthe
several churches in the city bo respectfully re
quested to take up a collection on the second Sab
bath to January, for the benefit of soldiers* fami
lies, end <H«t this collection be announced from
the pulpit one week previously, and that the city
papers do requested to announce the time and ob
ject of the collection.
The following named ladies were appointed to
visit the pastors of churches, and make the proper
request: BonthDivislon—Mrs. Greer, Mrs. Bayers
and Mrs. Loomis. North Division—Mrs. Tluk
bam, and Mrs. Shackford. West Division—Mrs.
Henyon, Mrs. J. L Moulton and Mrs. J. H. Tuttle.
On motion, the Society adjourned till Saturday
best, at half-past 8 o'clock, at the War Committee
memorial Services Last Ercn<
Dr. Dempster as a Preacher, a Mission*
ary» a student and Thinker, an In
structor, and a Man of Progress.
At the Clark street M.E. Church, last evening,
memorial services were held, in memory of the
late Rev. John Dempster, D. D„ Senior Professor
In the Garrett Biblical Justice, who departed
this life on the SSth of November. S. M.
Boring was chairman of the meeting. The ser
vices were commenced by singing the 3,053 d
Byron, (read by Rev. O. H. Tiffany,) followed by
prayer by Rev. T. M. Eddy, after which the 956 th
Hymn was sang, (read by Rev. J. C. Stoughton.)
Addressee were then delivered, as follows:
Dr* Dempster as a Missionary—Bev* D*
P. Kidder*
Dr. Elddcr said, before entering specially upon
his topic, and as a pertinent but somewhat indirect
introdceUon, he most bo permitted to give some
reminiscences of Dr. Dempster. In the years 1826-
'27 he was stationed in Rochester, N, Y. A revi
val occurred which had not only enlarged greatly
tbe borders of their own church, but extended to
other churches. To this day the Influence of that
revival Is felt in the religious character of Roches
ter. Hi 1836-*B7, it was the lot of the speaker to
succeed him in the same field, and to enter upon
labors In which bis influence was still visible, and
to mingle in scenes where his name was still famil
iar r.n a Jailhftil, zealous minister of the OospeL
I; was in 3£26, that Dr.Dcmpatcrsalled as a mis
sionary to Buenos Ayres. Bis passage was a long
and wearisome one, bat was atlenetuaccompllah-,
ed in safety. The work upon which he entered
was one of delicacy and difficulty. Few persons
who have always lived in Protestant countries, and
under the toleration ol Protestant laws, con form
any jnst Idea of the embarrassments and obstacles
that surround the missionary entering upon his
work in r. Roman Catholic country. Dr. Dempster
found to his surprise that laws existed prohibiting
jrom preaching without a special license from the
Ccvermrent Months were occupied ft seeming
such a license. There being no edifice suitable, it
was necessary to hire rooms in which to preach,
and this continued during his whole stay there.
This circumstance prompted Dr. Dempster to take
measures for the erection of a M. E. Chnrch there,
which xmz finally done, after many tedious delays.
Be gathered a congregation to whom he preached
regularly, and among whom tbe word of God was
glorified in the conversion of souls. Be also open
ed a Sabbath School, and a school for general In
strretion, sending to tbe United States for teach
ersforthe latter.
Dr. Kidder read some extracts of letters from
Dr. Dempster, while engaged in his missionary la
bel sat Bucncs Ayres, detailing the difficulties be
bad to encounter, owing to the unsettled condi
tion of the country. Dr. Kidder* said it was his
determined slrucgles with bodily Infirmities, as ;
well as surrounding and confronting obstacles,
that he exhibited that most essential characteris
tic of a successful missionary—perseverance
against difficulties. In tbe early part of the year
3&JO Dr. Dempster visited the United States. Ho
subsequently returned to his mission, and re
sumed his labors with Somewhat recruited health.
Be was laboring on diligently, having secured the
partial completion of his chapel, when the Mis
sionary Board, after a period or great financial re
vulsions, deemed it necessary to curtail its oper
ations end called him home. Be arrived in New
York In 3512, and immediately became pastor of
Vestry street Church.
Bctthecansehe had labored to establish in Bu
ncos A*res had then obtained so firm a foothold,
that tbe people would not consent lo tbe with
drawal oCthemlsalon, and it has not only been
kep: up to this day, bnt has received an enlarge
ment toe present year by the appointment of a
second missionary. It Is a happy coincidence
that a son-in-law and daughter of Dr, Dempster,
ere now laboring successfully in the mission
founded by their father twenty-seven years agp.fl
As a miseionarv. Dr. Dempster manifested the
same traits of character for which he wm distin
guished In other walks of life, bnt whicu were
found well adapted lo that peculiar vocation:
3 A disposition to shrink from no danger or
inconvenience when the cause of Christ might be
promoted by Ids efforts. lit
2—A readiness to see and Improve opportunities
of usefulness of every Idcd. , ..
8-Persevcrance under severe physical affliction,
and against discouraging outward circumstances.
4 A determination to turn-life to tbe largest
end test account, both In great undertakings an*
scrupulously redeeming his moments.
The result of his missionary experience was
jncnJy happy on his own life and character,
residence in a foreign country expanded his cws
and sympathies toward tbe world. It gave him a
store or happy recollections, and Inspired him
with the snbiuncst emotions when In the pniolt
and on tbe platform advocating the evangell*.. tion
of perishing men.
On the whole, Dr. Dempster's mission life of
about six years is an extremely interesting period
ofhis history, identifying him personally with the
broadest phase of Christian effort. Although ho
did not spend bis days on foreign shores, his ex
ample and his teachings have stimulated others
30 co so, and thus his record is still, and long wQI
be, perpetuated. Z * S S
Dr. Dempster as a Drencher—Her. F,
D* Bemcnpray.
The speaker alluded to the death of Dr. Demp
ster ns a public calamity—for a stately and polish
ed piller has been leveled to the dasr—a calamity
to the Methodist Church, for one of the princes of
our Ig-el as a laborer of the militant nost—one
widely known and warmly loved has been stricken
down-one whose very name was a tower of
strength, and whose presence was a crown of
beanty. The speaker said he stood before the
meeting more in the capacity of a sincere mourner
than e» one who boned to delineate the character
of the eminent dead. It was no part of the duty
assigned him to speak of his genius, of his varied
and extraordinary attainments, bis unsurpass
ed industry, the steady Inclination of his mind
and heart lowaru whatever might elevate the
character and promote the efficiency of (hat Church
in which he was a happy member and honored
minister for fifty years. •
A full sketch or Dr. Dempster as a minister,
would be a complete picture of him a* o man, for
be was nothing, if not a minister. Here was the
kev-noletolifbjvhole character—the focal-point
on'whlch all the faculties of his nature shed their
converging light. He was the diligent and suc
ccsefnl stud cut the acute and profound thinker,
the eminent philosopher—the patient, laborious,
and self-sacrificing instructor, because be was in
his deepest soul, hie inmost life, a Christian min
ister, separated, as he believed, unto the gospel of
The speaker spoke at length upon “bis unquali
fied devotion to Ids work.” Dr. D. possessed a
controlling conviction that he belonged to God.
Be owned one master-purpose—one consuming
passion that swallowed up evetr meaner Imnnlss
and wordlv ambition. He had prayerfully adopt
ed a UTe-nun, and no difficulty no dungerno de
feat no disaster could cause him to swerve from
it a sluclc hair's breadth. Having selected his po
sition,'he maintained it with rock-like firmness.
Heie war the great secret of his character. It was
the idea of God that (lowed in the lights and
depths of bis mighty sonl “like one great flame”
that made him great. He was hlroug because he
feU himself “linked to Omnipotence.”
Bis high estimate of the pastoral office, was indi
cated in no doubtful manner oy the thorough pre
paration be sought lor his work. His plans of
stody wete early formed and rigidly adhered to
during a ministerial life spanning half a century.
Bifcgcncrrlacqunintancefrith classical literature,
with the sacred tongues of the original scrip
tures, with the various brandies of physical sci
ence and several modern languages, was truly re
markable. In general history, and especially Ike
history o"thc church, he was the peer of any man
wbohadcot made these the subjects of exclusive
and life-lone study. In the departments of meta
physics and theology he was probably equal, if
not superior to any other man in American Hetfa
The speaker alluded to several of Dr. D .'slate
sermons, after which bo spoke of his sperial.char
actcrlstice in the work of the ministry—that he
was always loyal to the truth, and was eminently
spiritual,' and was sometimes, in his sermons,
overwhelmingly elooucnt. Passages from his ser
mons were quoted, fully proving the correctness
ofstatements on all these points, as well as that in
the devotional point of the minister's work he
was pre-eminent. In his character of pastor he
was noted for his Christian courtesy.
Dr. Dempster a* an Instructor—Her. c.
H. Fowler.
**Dr. Deropsteras an Instructor" was the theme
of remark byßev. C. H. Fowler. Thisphascofthe
Doctor's character was peculiar, and would be bright
in whatever light itmlght be reviewed. The speak
er would not wish to immolate the living that he
might raise a funeral pyre to the dead. Itmteht
bo wcver be said that in many respects none e mailed
him. In the recitation room he loomed upln the
characteristics that made him a successful instruc
tor. rew could equal him in the clearness and
force with which he applied the troths be sought
to teach. He laid the whole fioldof knowledge un
der contribution. He was remarkably accurate.
Corsdons strength was visible in bis treatment
of abstruse questions, and ho smote error so ford
bly that even its friends would rqjoico to see It fall.
He gained so much upon the confidence of his
puySts that they would sometimes accept
his assertions as troths, hut however
muchhe might have lost himself in vividness of
description and strength of presentation, be
alwavs fell hack upon the reason, and seemed de
termined that all who sailed with him must be
sailors. He was continually digging at the roots
of things had as constantly threw up relations and
correspondences which drew the learner irresist
ibly to hip conclusions; to bear him was to fol
low; to follow was to obey, Did any student fall
to assent to his deductions a comparison of ab
snrditv never failed to bring him roand. He was
noted for the cheerful tone which he imparted to
his instructions; be Inspired his pnnlia, and what
under treatment from others was doll, with him
was life like. Conveying Intelligence and awaken-
IngSntcreet equal to the inspired ones of former
days, he left tale impress upon the world, and his
works shall follow him.
Dr. Dempster as a Student—Bev, H.
Bannister, D. D,
Eev. n.BanEiß[er,D.D.,discussed the character of
Dr. Dempster as a student and thinker; his treat
meet was blgWy eulogistic. The traits manifested
in early life were a vivid imagination and a stem
u nattering •will. The early education of the do
ceased wag much neglected; this was compensated
for alter his conversion, hjjntense and unremit
ting application to study. Be soon mastered the
Latin and Greek languages, which he studied with
an cspcdal view to the enlargement of his vocabu
lary, and his great aim seemed then to be brevity;
he was sometimes obscure, this resulted, probably,
from a lack of the Saxon element in hts composi
tions. Be subsequently added a knowledge of the
Hebrew. Many of his hours on horseback were
devoted to study. Be betook himself to the rec
ondite domain of metaphysics to enable him to
combat every sophism, out with this he combined
a knowledge of,end a love for the natural sciences,
and this rendered his ratiocinations eminently
practical- Bis attainments in the latter domain
of research wore somewhat limited, but he had a
wonderful power in applying and digest
tog that which he knew, ana nuconcioasly inspired
others to follow a higher flight than that which he
had taken: He was exceedingly undogmitical,
and did not affirm positively except in the domain
of' actual knowledge. As a thinker be was
continuous and profound; earnest to prosecuting
a train of thonpht and untiring to its elucidation.
His argumentation was compact and unfaltering,
lie was fond of analysis; during the last few
years he delighted to deal with ontology*causes,
end primary cognitions. The different steps to
the process of an argument seemed to flash upon
his mind by intuition, and his comparisons were
vivid- The conclusions at which ho thus arrived
were delivered authoritatively, not donbttngly.
Bis imagination was adivtoc gift to him; it Cor
fu seated upon the intelligence of his hearers and
made dear to them the deepest recesses of thought.
Bad his knowledge been extensive there would
have been no end to his Illustrations. As it was,
he dealt much to antithesis and often used the
climax. It had been asked: “What claim had
John Dempster to be called a philosopher?” His
We was a high success to famishing to the world
rich treasures of original thought In tbs region of
philosophy. True, his processes and Ideas were
rather fragmentary, but no has left behind him ma
terial which, to the hands of an editor, would
prove volumes of rich "intellectual treasures. He
probably contemplated some such work as this
himself, but his light was quenched by the sudden
swoop of death upon him. He made great pro
gress In the development of the great truth of hu
man freedom. His achievements will be a lasting
reminder to those who survive him against tame
ness of attainment and blind subservience to the
errors of former ages.
Dr. Dempster as a Man of Progress—
Bcv. O. DU Tiffany, D. D.
Dr. Dempster as a Man of Progress, was the
theme of discourse by Eev. O. n. Tiffany. It
were treason, be said, to the memory of Dr. Demp
ster to say that he worked forapplftuse; if God was
glorified and humanity beneutled by his labors
Is end was attained. His plans of progress were
not eliminated In the brain of the Utopian think
er, but were the eductions of a well regulated,
practical mind, tempered and directed by tne love
of God. All hi* energies were taxed to their ut
most to effect the instruction of men who should
be fitted to advance tba work of human prop eta,
Methodism was born in a University, ret Us first
victories seemed doe not to Intellectual ability bat
to living Godliness; the church seemed at one
time to nave failed into theverror of thinking that
intellectual attainments were rather a drawback
to ministerial success than otherwise. Dr. Demp
ster recognized this as an error, and was not
discouraged by the nfegnitude of of the task of re
moral. Belabored hard and rested not till the
Biblical Institute was recognized as essential to
the Church. Yet he will not be noted more for
his alms than his labors. He raised one institute
In the East, one on the shore of Lake Michigan,
and aimed to erect another on the western slope
of the Bocky Mountains. In the last he was dis
appointed. But all honor to the mn« who suc
ceeded in changing the current of a church's life.
But, however. Freedom is the special problem
of the sec. The church has always been con
vinced or the great evil of slavery, and has always
set her face against its introduction into com
munion with the church. In 1811, their Bishop An
drews Detains by marriage the possessor of slaves.
The question was discussed In the Genera) Confcr
fcrence, and be was requested to desist from the
exercise of the duties of hli office so long as bo
shonld hold them. An eruption was produced
and a Methodist Ediscopal Church was founded.
From thistimo tbe church stood much behind the
root?! sense of its members. Yet* Dr. Dempster
faltered not, and in 1656 ho demanded that tbe
church should assert her true position. InISGQ
tills stand was taken. Tbe chnrch determined
to shake off her power fully and appointed Dr.
Dempster otic of toe bearers of a message to Wash
ington; he Is credited by tbe opposition with hav
ing been laicclyinstromental in changing the Gov
ernment policy on tbe slavery question. Bis
name will be enrolled in history ns one of those
whoxcpa.icd the broken pillers of the temple of
Qcd. Dr. Dempctcr was ever energetic, and
therefore never old. Be looked not at the thing*
which were behind bat pressed forward to those
which wcie before - and delighted in tbe
exercise of conrclous strength; and believed that
troth was near its triumph when the contest wax
ed warm. Bad he lived, tbe extension of minlsle
rial terms and the association* of laymen in the
general councils of the church would both have re
ceived his vote ir the convention. But ho is gone.
Great minds can rover cease, their fhtufe is death
less. The lesson of John Dempster's life was one
which speaks to ns to breast the wave when it is
strongest. Onward to the fluht. Ron the race; for
he who rrns shall obtain. Bis departure we have
seen, and cadi of ns has cried with 000 of old “My
Father, my Father; the chariots of Israel and the
horsemen thereof! God grant that whosoever
bears his mantle may Inherit a double portion of
bis spirit.
A resolution was then passed requesting that
copies of the ftmcral sermon and addresses deliver
ed on the present occasion be given to the Method
ist Book Depository for publication. The meeting
then adjourned with tbe benediction.

Fourth Annual Report.
The following report of the work of tho City
Missionduiinglhopastycarwillbo read within
tci eat. It is worthy of remark that no application
Las been made to the Mission for charity by any
colored person during tho four years of its ex
The City Mission has been located in its present
position since November, 1800. The (Church of
8t Anegarins located on tho corner of Indiana and
Franklin streets, was at that time closed, and a fa
vorable contract was made for its occupancy by'
the corporators, consisting of Ber. E. B. Tuttle.
R. H. Clarkson, D. D„ U. N. Bishop, D. D., Clin
ron Locke, and Her. J. O. Barton.
Rev.E.B. Tuttle was appointed Chaplain and City
Missionary, which position ho holds at present.
So much of bis time as can bo spared from duty In
Government hospitals is devoted to the work of
charity Incident to the calling of City Missionary:
bis especial attention is directed to the aid of such
as have no one to care for them. Tho following is
his fourth «Tvpnal ,
The Mission was incorporated in 18G0. Its work
was inaugurated in IS4££—to supply a fall want for
systematic charily among the poor of the city.
It has co-operated with other agencies in dis
bursing the contribations of its patrons, to help
people to help themselves. The contributions have
been quite limited, considering the magnitude of
the work, and they have seldom been made unso
licited. We i ave furnished thousands of families
with good help, and from scarcely any has com
pensation been thought of. Too many have
thrown hardens upon ns, which they ought either
to hare personally borne themselves, or provided
the means of relief.
Wo claim, upon the system Inaugurated by as,
of personal visitation, etc., to have materially aid
ed m breaking up the evils of eirtetbtggvng. The
labors of Rev. K. Collyer. and of Geo. P, Hansen,
(late County Agent) have largely rendered to the
same end.
Most of our labors for the past two years have
been devoted to soldiers’ families. The task of
superintending their correspondence; helping to
obtain fttnds from absent husbands; besides pro
viding fuel and clothing for their children, has
been no light or easy one.
The opinion which prevails among many, that
there ia little need of missionaries, because ot the
prosperous state of the city and country, is a most
fallacious one.
There never was a time, notwithstanding the
increase of churches and agencies for ameliora
ting the sufferings of humanity, that vice and
crime so abounded as now t it is appalling to
the stoutest heart. Ask the police if ills not so f
The Innocent victims are mostly women and chil
dren. We mar turn away from the sickening
sights which vice reveals to ns, when we go just
where it exists : but it is festering all around ns
in the alleys and slums of tho city, and few are
found willing to cope with it, even in Its most re
spectable forms.
So long as no reformatory institutions are open
ed to the degraded, the step is gradual hut certain,
to downward rain. This Is especially true in re-
Krd to the young. and to intemperate females,
ley are sent to the Bridewell, and after a brief
retention there, arc again seen at the police court
to have the same process, repeated. The arrest,
trial, sentence, punishment, among old offenders.
Is but to go forth and sin again.
JiaponswUify. —There at least 93 churches In
Chicago. At Inc same rime, there are thonsands
inonrdty, some of whom, at the east or abroad,
attended some place of worship on Sunday, who
yet never darken the door of any church, never
think of worshipping God, and have not for years
on the Sabbath day. Where they spend the day
wc cannot tell.
Suggestion!—Ho meet the wants of jhe suffering
poor at large, the system adopted Inßaltimoreaud
successfully practiced far more loan ten years,
seems admirably adapted to the wants of our city.
The society is railed the “Benevolent Association
for Improving the Condition of the Poor.” A cen
tral office, with a superintendent, receives all ap-
Slicatlons for aid. The city is divided into three
iefiricts, (answering to the natural divisions of
Chicago,) and an agent in each, dally visits and ad
ministers systematic relief, A well, known citi
zen is President. The means are raised by a com
mittee of citizens.
There is nothing better now than to encourage
all well-tried Agencies, whereby the ins and outs
of those who are continually seeking for charity
are well known. The undeserving swarm at once
to every new Agency to try and create new sympa
thies for their ott-told tales of misery; while the
really deserving shrink back and sutler. It Is as
much in hoic we relieve distress, when wo do tt,
and where to leave off, as in anything else In life.
That man, then, who gives to all mike, without
regard to circumstances, may satisfy bis con
science as to dnty, but he would be reckoned a
bad steward in others’ bounties.
The amount of charities disbursed among tho
poor for fonr years, to tho relief of upwards of
tuslce thousand needy cases, has been $3,Q37.3;i.

- Enlistments.
The patriotic action of the Common Council and
Board ol Supervisors, la appropriating a bounty of
one hundred dollars, in addition to the Govern
ment bounty, to all who shall volunteer to fill up

as a spur to enlistments. The Board of Super

loves me devotedly and dotes upon me with all
the ardor of the Giaour. That love Is returned
with gushing gratitude. I have found my affinity,
and nothing but death can part us. Henceforth

Successful Recovery of Stolen Goods
—A short time ago Information was laid at the
Detective Police Office, that the store of Charles
Dnbroek, at Dauby Statioivhad been broken Into
and SI,OOO worth of goods were mysteriously taken
away. After the lapse of a few days another daring
haiglaryiwas committed at Blue Island; the cloth
ing store ofWm. Baumheck having been broken In
to and robbed of JSOO worth of ready madeclothing.
From the skillful manner in which the burglars
covered their tracks. It was clear that they were no
novices In the stealing profession. Information
by telegraph was transmitted all over the State
snd principal neighboring cities, hut no clue was
obtained to either or goods. Detective
Stroebel of ’ this city was, at last, applied to;
and from information received, he was induced to
enter the house of one Dorsman, residing on Mor
gan street, near Milwaukee avenue, where be dis
covered some six hundred dollars' worth of the
property stolen from Dnbrosk. He then went to
Schaumburg, where he found some four hundred
dollars’ worth of Baumback’s goods. No traces as
to the whereabouts of the thief or thieves have an
yet been discovered,

of the Northwestern Fair, when they generously
tendered their services for that beneficent purpose,
yet they have a reputation in the West which
classes them as No. 1 in ail the elements that arc

composed of four persona—Misses Maria and

It is hardly necessary to be critical upon any por

Fatal Railroad Accident.—Acting Coro
ner Summerfleld held an inquest on Saturday on the
body of George Batlo, whose death from an acci
dent on the Northwestern Railroad wa.; reported
In the Tribune of Friday. The evidence disclosed
hut little of the circumstances attending his death.
He was a brakeman on the road, and was running
on the passenger train at the rime of the accident.
The train had nearly reached Ridgevllle, McHenry
coonty,*wben it was found that an extra train was
standing at the station. It is supposed ttiat the
deceased went forward with the intention of jump
ing to the ground, and that in so doing he got
caught between the engine aud tender, when the
two trains collided. Ho was crushed terrible
about the hips and bled to death. An engine was
dispatched to Woodstock for a physician, bnt tho
nan was dead almost before It left the station.
The body was brought home to Chicago; ho re
sided on the corner of Carroll and Union streets.
He was about seventeen years of age, and boro a
good character. His mother Is nearly frantic at
his loss.
The conductor testified on the Inquest that the
night was misty, and the red lights of the other
train—an express freight—looked farther off than
they really were; that the engineer did not whistle
down the breaks nor reverse the engine as he
ought to have done; that the witness anticipated
a collision and put on the breaks himself as rapidly
as possible, and that he did not think the enginery
was attending to his duties. The Jury returned a
verdict in accordance with the facts, and incorpo
rated therein tho eonclusion that the collision was
caused by carelessness on the part of the engineer.

To the Editor of the Trusora:
I take great pleasure In bearing testimony to the
eflectlreness of the treatment of affections of the
lungs by Dr. James Hunter, having myself expe
rienced its happy, results. I had been suffering
from Bronchitis, bywhichlwasatone time, dar
ing the year 1861, so greatly reduced that my at
tending physician and friends at the time despair
ed of my recovciy. I lingered on in annneertain
condition until February, 1562, when 1 consulted
him end placed myself under hla care. I had great
oppression in breathing, cough, exocctoratlon.
loss of flesh, and great prOßtnftjon. Soon after t
commenced Inhaling the remedies Dr. James Hun
terpreecribedforme, I began to feel the change.
My breathing gradually and steadily became more
free; my cough and expectoration entirely disap
peared ; my general condition improved from day
today,until in the course ofafew months I was
as strong and healthy as ever 1 was, and have re
tained this remarkable improvement, weighing to
day twenty pounds more than I did when I placed
mvsclf under Dr. Jamcr Hunter’s care.
