Bckawat,— Yesterday afternoon a horse attach
ed to a dray ran away on State street, most proha
ably on account of the eccentric management of
its driver, who was in a "democratic” state of In
loxlcatipn. Near Feck Court the animal knocked

, seven or eight years of age, and though the vehicle
did not pass over his body the child was severely

Cuthbertson with assaulting James Clarkson. The
parties met in a saloon on North Clark street and
commenced a'dlscnsslon on the probable tormina
k tiOn <H General Grant’s campaign. Whether they
agreed thereupon is uncertain, but the actual ter
mination of the discussion was a fight, in which
Jsger.bcer. classes were favorite weapons. Con
sidering Michael to be most to blame his honor
Imposed a fine of 55 and costa to check hlspugi
'lisoc propensities. . • •“ ••
ScnsbtDiunes.—A numerously attended meet
ing of saloon keepers was held last evening, porsn
ant to -adjonninrent, at Watkins 1 , os Dearborn
street. The'Oonnnlttee appointed at thefirst meet
ing reported thatViey bad waited upon the pried*
pal saloon keepajftand there was a uniform dispo
sition to iijprease ftf price of ale-and liquors to
meet the increased fixation. It was therefore re
solved that the following scale of prices be adopt*

drink*, fifteen cents—the new prices to take effect
from Honday next.
Hnuramr Intelligence.—' Yesterday morning
one hundred ot the hundred days 1 troops, reached
the Soldiers 1 Best. After breakfast they proceeded
to Camp Fry, where they will be Joined to Colonel
Bought regiment.
In the afternoon, cJghty-two men of the 85th
Wisconsin infantry, a new regiment lately formed *
at Madison, came in the city, end after receiving
the hospitalities ot the Beat, left for the front, to
Join their regiment.
Yesterday about a hundred and thirty men who
have enlisted for the hundred days 1 service, reach-*
ed the Best from Mcndota, 111., eh route for Camp
CouKTEEixm.—Counterfeit* on the miscella
neous currency in nee hsv* been one of the causes
attending iU nee. Every body have hid counter*
foil* passed upon them, and ail are in constant
fear of being stock with them. The substitution
«ftbe cnenback standard of currency trill banish
the wild-cats and their counterfeit satelltes. There
will be no trouble ia detecting counterfeits on the
greenbacks, because everybody is familiar with
their looks. But who can tell .the counterfeits
from the genuine bills ea 1600 different banks.
The common people are shamefully imposed upon
by spurious curency. The adoption of greenbacks
will put an end to these losses and impositions,
flWux or tux Latz Hb. Cnrsxr.—The win of
the late Hr. Luclen P. Cheney was yesterday prov
ed In the County Court. The property Is willed to
the use of the widow and family during the life
time of the former (as the Doctortxpresseditin
Ida last fflnese, “he wished them to live as if ha
was amongst them") and on the death of the
Widow the will provides that the property shall be
equally divided between the three children. Alter
an debts are paid the estate of the deceased is ral
lied et $16,000. Thomas O. Dunn is the sole ex
ecutor under the will, and entered Into approved
Bond* In the sum of fAjOi 0 for a faithful perform
ance of Us duties. A. If. Banyan represents the
estate.
Ijiioatiojg— Some people are possessed of an ex*
inordinary desire to settle all disputes through the
medium of the law, and are never happier
when in a Court of Justice. Fritz Miller, a resi
dent of the North Division, imagines he has a
right of way over some ground adjacent to the tan
aery on Chicago avenue, which right John Keefe,
am employe of the tannery, vigorously disputes, and
Quarrels terminated by pugilistic engagements are
consequently of daily occurrence between the
ZwaufT Assault cases nave already been tried at
severe! justices’ offices m our dty, as reported in
Yesterday's Tumors, but seemingly not content,
the twain appeared again yesterday. After -the
Znal on Tuesday before Justice DcWolf. Miller
challenged Keefe to fight; Keefe accepted, got
worsted in the engagement, and therefore bad hie
antagonist arraigned on a charge of
battery. Case me missed.
Uatbzvokt nr a Beothel.—Charles Bleacher
Master of the steam tug ** Continental," was yes
terday charged beforp Justice Cuthbcrtaon with an
assault upon bis wife Carrie Flescher. From the
evidence adduced, it u appeared that Hra. Flescher
from incompatibility of temper or some other
cause, had for some time post £been living apart
from her husband. On Tuesday night, however,
they accidentally met in a dec on Wells street kept
By Paschal Angel, Where overtures of a friendly re
cognition w ere made by the accused, which finally
resulted in their taking oysters together. After
the refreshments had disappeared, the husband
not only refused to pay his wife’s share of the cost,
But demanded a gold ring which she wore on her
finger. Mrs. Flescher declined to “obey" the
mandate of her unworthy lord and master, where
upon he committed theassault complained of; biting
complainant’s finger severely in three places. The
Justice imposed a fine often dollars and costs.
Tin: Late Gale.—The bark Monitor, which was
reported wrecked, has tamed up all right'except
the lo*t of topsail, both jibs, foresail and a coll of
rope from the deck. Captain Capron ran np from
Sbeboypan with four men abort. Foot of Che crew

Cere and freight at Sheboygan, jest before the gale-
Wtrmk the vessel. The boat reached the shore with
the tlx passengers. The schooner Baltic ia all

aartin Conden, a passenger from Muskegon,was
Washed overboard from the schooner Magnet in the
sale of Monday might and drowned. The schooner
went ashore near Racine. His friends reside at St,
Joseph, Michigan. HU body is not yet recovered.
It is said that the deceased had a sister in this city,
who can leam the foil particulars of bis loss by can

Dipaion Street.
’ i Taz Bank Failum.—The euspension of bnsl*
* aeesjof the tanking Arm of Marc & Bertel, doing
' -business in the Metropolitan Hal! block was men
tioned in the Tuscan of yesterday. We under
stand that the suspension was -caused by the fall
lire of Messrs. A. Marc & Co. of Moscow, Russia
the principal in which latter Arm is a brother of
- the Mr. Marc here. Mr. Bertel has gone to Europe
.to rearrange, 11 possible, the foreign credits, leav
ing hi* partner in Chicago to settle the liabilities
«1 the Arm. Xo assignment appears to have been
made, and all Small certificates presented by-the
poorer classes have been net. it is also stated
that all-collections and other matters of special
trust are entirely protected. . ■
The liabilities of the Arm approximate to
SIOO,OOO.
One of the creditors of the Arm to the amount of
$9,000 caused an attachment to issue against the
tiffecte yeslerdav.
Mr. Bertel Is the Hanoverian Consul here, and
during bis absence in Europe, Julios Rosenthal
Will art as his deputy.
Tnnrtmz’a CrncrLAnos.-r-The number of Tnx-
Suxss printed yesterday morning exceeded Fobtt
Thousand, which is probably greater than the com
bined circulation of all the other dally papers in .
Chicago. We did not begin to All our orders, but
this was the utmost number our four-cylinder press
could work off in time for the trains, vnwHa tnd
carriers. In a few weeks our great eight-cylinder
Bob'press, with a capacity of 16,000 sheets per
hour, will arrive from Xew Tort, and be set at
work. Wo greatly need it. If we bad it now, we
would print 60,000 papers per day, to supply the de
mand. Our aty patrons who complain of the late
delivery of their papers in the morning, will soon
be served at an early hour. We expect, under the
mew arrangement, to be able to deliver the Daily
Tszbvke at the residences of our citizens between
H and 6 a. m. punctually, in all parts of the city
within two miles of the office, and between 0 and 7
m. m. In the outer wards. Have patience, friends,
s little longer. We have gone to an expense of
wffV'Q 0 for «i»ia single machine. But the demand
xorthe Tsmcxta is so great that we felt compelled
to incur mis very large expense for a faster power
preea.

ThcPwild eats are departing; their nine Urea
avail thtm sot; at least eight of them are kill ad
outright; In a day or two the ntnth will bo
entirtfly.” The moTcmeat inaugurated by our
patriotic and sensible Board of Trade,
has carried awey opposition • lire the sweep
ol a whirlwind. No more will we be plagued
with and robbed by a mlacdlaneica lot of rtg*
which by a stretch of courtesy hare been dignified
with the name of “money.” We shall no more
find value* vnniahlng in a night, and our property,
which for safety had been converted Into “hard
cash,” worth nothing at all in consequence of a
discovery that the hanks were unsound, and their
eternities worthless. Kot one of the least yaloabie
results of the war win be the giving us a uniform
national currency, which will ha tho same a 1! over
the States, for whose redemption tbefkithoftba
nation is pledged, and whose issues wM be diffi
cult to simulate, or whose counterfeits will be
readily detected.
The history of the struggle in Chicago is familiar
to filL The whole community has watched and
waited impatiently for the final Uroe, and all ex
cept a very few interested parties have’hoped fer
vently for its arrival before the grand crash should
come which would bring us back to tbe wild-cat
horrors of 16C1, with those of war snperadded.
But those few incited a movement to delay tbs ac
tion already determined on, and procured a meet
ing of Bankers on Saturday evening last, at which
it was decided to delay the assumption of the legal
standard basis tin July Ist. Determined to meet
the action as It became men who had a regard to
consistency and their own interests, as well as
those of the community, a number of the leading
members of the .Board of Trade signed the follow
ing during yesterday and the day preceding:
Chicago, May 0, IBM.
We, the undersigned, members of the Board of
Trade, agree, on and after the 16th to base all

the agreement:

This, we opine, la about all that will be hooded
to set the matter right. The country peopifc Bare
long since been tired of the miscellaneous curren

actn n of the gentlemen whose names appear above

who sees popularity by offering to take the
stuff after others have refused it, will soon be glad

BOARD OF'EDUCATION.
Speritl Heeling—Deciloa of Sclicol Principal
—School ictonunodattoiis—lent Books.
Tteßoard of Education met in special session
yesterday afternoon. In the rooms of the Board.
There were present. Inspectors Carpenter, Went
worth. Steele, Ryder, Ebeahan, Taft, Onahan,
Wahl, Wicker, dewberry, Prindivilla, Brentano.
The chair was taken by Inspector Foster, On
motion of Inspector Wentworth, the Committee on
Examination of Teachexx was directed to report.
Inspector Ryder reported that the Committee had
examined several applicants on the previous day
for the position of Principal in the Enzie school,
made vacant by the transfer of Mr. Slocum to the
Mosely school, rice Briggs, resigned. -
On motion of Inspector Frindlrille the Board
gocecdcd to ballot for Principal, with the follow*
g result: Twelve votes cast, seven of which were
given for Samnel K. Martin, of Milwaukee, and four
for 8. W. Far, of Chicago. Mr. Martin was de
clared elected.
Morton Culver, Principal of School Xo twelve,
tendered his resignation on account of an expected
connection with the army. On motion ot Inspect*
. or Stehan, the election or a principal to fill the va
cancy was postponed till the next meeting.
The Superintendent called attention' to the fact
that Brown School was very ranch crowded, and
recommended a change iu the dividing line. Kin*
xie street would probably be the one found most
advisable on theXorth. The subject was referred
to the Superintendent and Committee on the
School.
Charles A. Sweet, of the High School, was read
mitted, having recovered from bis Hint s i.'
Thu Superintendent read apetition from several
pnpils of the Dearborn School, asking that the mil
itary drill be instituted in the school.
Toe subject was referred to Inspector Shcahan,
on his promise that he would treat the matter seri
ously* i
Tbe Superintendent reported the continued Ill
ness of Mr. -Cutter, Principal of the Washington
School.
The Bridgeport school we called up, and Inspec
tor Wahl or the Commute on Boil dings and
Grounds asked to report. He had nothing to add
to the report enhmltted at the last meeting.
Inspector Wentworth bad examined the school
and lound that the proposed enlargement would
cost about $1,500. The appropriation was not yet
made and it was not easy to commence now. There
was not so great a pressure at present as formerly
on account of the opening of a private school In
the neighborhood. The district was increasing
Wahl atld that the school committee
bad till now rented a branch school bouse, which
bad now to be given np or be con tinned at an ex
orbitant rent: and.lt was illy adapted to tbs pur
pose. A large increase in the school acoommoda-.
tlont of Bridgeport was needed.
Inspector Sheaban said that a building to cost
twelve or fifteen thousand dollars would be wanted
before long. . - - ;
The subject was laid over for further action in
the future.
The Superintendent reported that a change in
the recess of the Bolstcen School bad been applied
for. The subject was referred to the Committee
on this school mid the Superintendent with power
to act. i-
Icepector Wahl re-introduced the matter of the
Bridgeport school addition, and moved tbs passage
of the order. The order would be Invalid any way
iftbeapprodriation were sot made, bat If made,
the order could be acted on immediately afterward.
Inspector Newberry was opposed to the passage
oftbis order tilUbe Board should know what it bad
to rely on.
>!r. Ward, the School Agent, was Invited to speak,
and explained that some of tbe material was al
ready on hand and workmen were now employed
by the Board who could be spared to tbe work,
ilucb expense would be saved thereby. The ac
commodation was much needed. It would give au
that was wanted for several years, os when a new
building was needed. It should be put up between
the Mosley school and the one now at Bridgeport.
On motion of Inspector Newberry the matter
was postponed till the next meeting.
Superintendent Wells said that he had no power
to overstate the number of pupils in the foster
School, It was safe to say that if they bad to-day
room for three hundred children, it would not serve
more than a month.
Inspector'Wahl also spoke of tbe very insuffic
ient accommodations at that school, which' had
been literally parked, yet besides that, a branch
school, called now tbe ** Foster MUelon, had Just
been sold out ol their hands. But it could be pur
cba&cd bock for about SSSO; tbe building la 69 by
24 and 22 by 24 ; la the ia&t named space they had
taught one hundred children.
The Board passed an order requesting the Com
mon Connell to authorize the Committee to pur
chase the building. v
Inspector SheaEan moved that tbo Secretary be
instructed to request the Common CounclTto ap
propriate or so much thereof as may be ne
cessary, out of the general fond to pay the expense
of night schools next winter. *
Inspector Sheaban then offered the following: <
Mesolted, That the Oommltuo on Text books
end course of Instruction, be instructed to Inquire
or d report whether any change be necessary or id-
Tirable in any of tbe Text books now In use la'the
EnUic schools, and whether in the use <* readers It
c advisable to have any uniform series or readers
of two or more series, and for the purposes of this
lr onlnllt will be considered that all school books
pahlit-ned are included in the refererce.
Irspector Wentworth, advisee Mr. Sheaban to'
pnt that motion in hi? pocket for thirty data, and
submit it to tbo new Board. *
Inipsctor Sacahan. said that the report most lie
over Id* thirty days* In any orent, tn which case It
must b« submitted to the new.Board. It was for
the purpose of putting an end to it that he wished
the orde passed. The book agents were lying
round Inwait for the entrance or the new Board'
and wool] be round as thick aa ales when the new
members look their seate.
Inspector'Newberry, said that it would not T>e
courleoup to teem to wish to forestall the action of
the next board.
The Secretary rcadanoteon the subject which
rtqclrcs that aroporttobnil be made in May, if at
all. or tf at any other, time, then only by a two
thirds vote. ", v
The mottos was laid on tho table, and
The Beari adjourn, d-
ONE HUNBREO DAYS’ SERVICE.
Progress of FnlHtoiwts—Visit to Camp Fry
—TLe Men Coming In—More Needed*
With the pleasant weather the recruits for the
one hundred days' service become more numerous*
The prospect of spc«dily filling up the three regi
ments allotted to Cook county Is becoming cheer,
ing. From present indications, wp are authorized
In assuming that the regiments of Cols. Hancock,
Hough and Stimn will bo comfortably fixed In
quarters at Camp Fit, and filled to the maximum.
Squads and companies are continually arriving
from the interior. Ths country is doing nobly, and
If the city does as web, the work is done, and the
quota filled. The three days yet remaining are the
osya for work. Let every loyal man who takes an«
interest in tee well being of the nation give at'
least these few days to their country.
This service will hare many attractions which
do not attach to the the three years' service. The
labors which these men will be called upon to. per
form, will be light and free from peril. There will
no long marches, no barrasslng skirmishes, and
litfc likelihood of engaging in battle. It will bo
tbeir doty to. garrison forts, to protect lines
communication and to guard rebel prisoners; They
will be upon direct lines of communication, and
will not, like the veterans, bo compelled to como
down, to the conventional rations of soldiers in
the field—“hard tack and sow belly.” Tho duties
they willto called upon to perform will he simple,
yet honorable, and snch as any man wbo is fit for
the service should be willing to perform freely.
It may be that these hundred days men will have
tbenrinlereof dealing the last, finishing stroke
to thiraenfeed rebellion. It may be their privil
ege to beat back the rebel hordes which, in case of
the defeat of the great armies of the union, will
cross the Ohio and attempt to make the brood
prairies and green fields of Illinois the theater of
sanguinary conflict. Wo do not anticipate this
last contingency. We believe that the rebellion
wfli be crushed without calling these men into sc*
tire service: bnt if It should be necessary, we be
lieve they will strike a blow which will reflect
credit upon themselves and the State—a blow
which will ho telling and effective.
These men will not go into the field as a forlorn
hope. They are a free will offering from the glori
ous State of Bllbols. There is a fund of patriot
ism lying hack ot all that has been done and suf
fered in this State, whose surface* even has nos
been reached. If another demand shall be made
upon oar loyal hearted people, that demand will be
met and the draft honored so long aa a man shall
be left within her borders capable of bearing arms.
It speaks grandlr for the patriotic loyalty of the
Sucker State, that with voluntary enlistmeata,
nearly ten thousand in excess of her quota under
all the calls, she can voluntarily present to the
country twenty thousand men, as another free will
offering.
There Js an argent necessity that the three regi
ments allotted to Chicago shall ho filled without
delay. Ifthfr call is not responded to at once tho
occasion for their services may have passed away.
Tho terrible conflicts on the Kapldan and la tho
vicinity of Illcbmood are fast thinning the ranks
of the brave boys in the front. Many are killed
and more are wonndod. The call cornea np Irom
the gallant-Grant for men to fill the gaps in his
fighting batalhons. The thousands of men left be
hind to keep intact our extended Uses of commu
nication, to hold strategic points In the enemy's
dominions, and to guard prisoners, are needed at
the front, and they are eager to be<here. They

It is not to be understood that those in camp are
the only men enlisted. Moat recruits desire a short
furlough, to enable them to close np their business,
and this is freely accorded.
It Is expected that CoL Hough win assume com

his headquarters there. At present the encamp-,
raent is under the charge of Captain Enoch, who fa
the ranking officer present. He is also Acting
Quartermaster. Lieutenant Shields Is Acting Com*
mlsssry of Subsistence, and lieutenant Core Act*
Ire Adjutant General.
The Commissary department Is well supplied with
rations, consisting of potatoes, pork, sugar, coffee,
and dried fruit—everything in tact allowed by
military regulations. Those in camp were in the
best of spirits and evidently enjoyed hugely this
poetical period of soldier's life. The guard was
regularly detailed and the guard lines established,
beyond which none could pass except by permis
sion of the officer in command. Some of the boys
giumbled a little because they could not roam out*

REFORM SCHOOL.
Eighth innnal Report-Financial Exhibit.
IT e Eighth Annual Report of the Board of Guard
ians of the Reform School of this city Is now in
the bands of the city prlSter, The Report will ap
pear in exUnto in the columns of the secesh organ
this morning, the directors of which in their usual
fairness hare not furnished advance sheets to the
Tiubuke. For this and all other courtesies they
have whatever modicum of thanks is due to them.
The following Is a summary obligingly handed hy
them do another paper:
RThe avenge number of boys employed in the
several departments doring.lhe year are as follows:
Contract shoe shop. 65; school shoe shop, 15;
tailor shop, £5; small boys'work shop, 85; farm,
20; dormitories, 8; bakery and kitchen, 4; iaun
■ dry, 10; dining room. 10; general work. Si.
As an instance of the work done in the laundry,
it may be stated that- no less than 48,612 pieces
were washed daring the year. In the small boys'
work shop 471 pairs of stockings were manufac
tured, and 3,219 pain mended, while 2,033 pounds
of hair was picked.
Theretnms of the tailor and shoe shops, and of
the garden and farm, show that the boys had been
kepi diligently employed. The amount earned by
the boys tm work sot required for themselves, was
as follows: Small £qys'workshop, $41,03; school
shoe shop, $451.25; contract shoe shop, $1,245.77.
Total. $1,738.05.
It has been deemed advisable by the Board to
make arrangements for the employment of several
workmen to folly instruct the boys in the different
departments of work; and such ns are able also to
cultivate and improve their moral and social na
tures. Many of the boys have dona well under the
instructions of Messrs, McDougal, Nicholas &. Co.,
the contractors for shoes, and, since going oat on
ticket of leave, hare earned for themselves good
wages at their trade. " -

Cocktt Court.—Widows’ Awards.— On Tues
day a motion was made and argued in the County
Court to set aside the order of the Court approving
the widow's award in the matter of the estate of
the late John M. Davis, deceased, on the ground
that tbe award was too large, and that'the ap
praisers in allowing the widow $1,122, she having
no cfaildren,were guilty of fraud. Tbs motion was
made by. J.H. King and others, creditors of tbe es
tate.
Yesterday Judge Bradweß gave his decision in
tbe case as follows:
•• it |b contended on the part of tbe widow that
tbe Court has no power to remove the appraisers,
to Get aside the order approving the award, or to
question the amount of the award.
Tbe appraisers are officers appointed by tbe
court to appraise tbe goods aud chattels of the de
ceased, anal am of tbe opinion that tbe Court has
the same power to set aside or refuse to approve ■
an appraisement or award made bp the appraisers
that s court of common law Jurisdiction has to set
aside the verdict of. a jury. But that this is a
Dower the court should sot exercise unless for
fraud yiMsV*, or wben the-appraisement is so
bleb or low as to strike the court at first view as
bcW decidedly wrong. Iseenoihlngln this award •
that would cause me to disturb It, except the item
of “ wearing apparel,” which is appraised ■at $l9O
more In the*widow’s award than In the appraise
ment bill. The language of our statute Is pecu
liar; it does not use the word
speaking of wearing appareL as It doM wnen
speaking of u beds, bedsteads, bedding, and house
hold and kitchen furniture, 14 .bupaya, ‘‘ the wear
lug apparel of themselves and families, there
by meaning the wearing apparel - 4 that
-the---widow and - children have
the time of the decease of the husband and fath
er without regard to whether it is ! necessary
or not. The wearing apparel should in all cases be
-appraised at tbe same in the award 'to lha
widow as It is 1b the appraisement bllL Unless
tbe widow consents, therefore to hats, the
va?ne of the wearing apparel in the award made to
correspond with the appraisement, tbe order ap
proving the award wilk be set aside and the ap
praisers instructed to an award la accordance
with this oomion.”
ALDERMAN RUM’S LETTER.
A Flutter Among the Copperheads—How they
latefid to Account for It—Other Changes.
The publication of the able and patriotic letter
of Alderman Boh of the Fourteenth Ward, Tester
day morning, wherein ho announced bis Intention
to cut loose from the rule or ruin party, and no
longer affiliate with copperheads and traitors,
' created as much consternation In the ranks of the
“Democracy,” aa would the explosion of a shell
filled with bullets In a crowded church on a bright
Sabbath morning.' The damage was also
quite as effective. There was swearing, and
groaning,• and limping, all day yesterday.
John Comlskr was ' compelled to submit
to a capital operation. The Mayor was severely
wounded between wind and waters Dr. Hahn was
hullo d several times, and did what for a long time
betas not done—took water freely. The Mayor
and Alderman Barrett
with one of Uio other AJdermsm, whom they were
dJrposcd to consider unreliable upon the great
“Democratic” questions of plunder and profit.
City Attorney Adame looked glum and black as a
thunder cloud. The Comptroller was serene, and
exhibited a degree of composure, tinder the cir
cumstance, altogether remarkable. Waleh
was wrathy. O’Sullivan exhibited a beefy degree
of stolidity. Charley Willard was Intensely dis
united and talked learnedly of “greenbacks” and
compaiatlvo 44 sense.” Roberts looked at the law
cOßcern leg illegal Innßferr. through the bars of a
gridiron and said nothing. Mark Sheridan Sullivan,
O’Rafferty and Clark, kept shady—saying nothing
but doing a power of thinking. Little Charley
Woodman was anxiously Inquiring among his Cop
perhead friends for the latest news from the Four
teenth Ward. The eccesb concerns blowers wore
a 6‘* don’t-care-s-damaliTe” sort of look, which
would seem to indicate that having made a good
thing themselves, they proposed to “ let her rip.”
Hawksfasw had spoiled the conspirators’ 44 nice
little game” this tins, and the “Domocntta” found
it difficult to “maintain their composure.” Oa
Tnseday morningtheywere rubbing their hands and
exclaiming at the corners of the street*, “beauti
ful, beautiful, my dears,” but on Wednesday
they were ns baaly knocked as were MslterMoss
ana Jem Dalton when Robert Bncriy rescued Sam
Willoughby from tbelr hands, and exposed their
Tinainona cheatings.
• The Copperheads met in caucus last night, and
after a ftiu and free discnsslsn of the now “situa
tion,” decided to charge the Republicans with
pnrchaalmr Alderman Rub. They Instructed the
Tinit* to say that It knew Just the price
paid for the Alderman’s vote and co-operation, and
the contributors to the fund for the purchase. To
day then, the seccsh Organ will ring the changes
upon “Bargain and Sale,” and distinctly charge
the Alderman from the Fourteenth Ward
with selling himself to the Republicans. What
ever credence the Copperheads may give to this
fable, sober, sensible Republicans will pronounce
the statement a base fabrication.' They know that
the Union partv do not buy votes as drovers do
tbelr cattle. Money could not indues a man ol
Alderman Rub’s character to brave tbo terrors of
party discipline. Ko, gentlemen, you are wide of
the mark. The reasons of Alderman Rah’a change
are fully stated in his excellent letter, and vbej
are reasons entirely creditable to his head and
fact Is, German Democrats are dismasted
with Irish Copperhead and Southern Copperhead
misrule. Alderman. Rub is not the only man la
the city who has deserted the Copperhead party,
and we-trust he tanst the only AJdermaa now af
filiating with that treasonable organization who
Trill come ont fairly and squarely, as bs has dsne,
in favor of right. There are several men in that
body who would more nearly act la accordance
with their own convictions, and with the wishes of
the respectable portion of their constituents, If
they joined the Union party.
•, HlAlMf FIRE.
Bnißlag of T. W. Baxter’s Ml Furnishing
Depot*
Last evening about half-past seven o’clock the
Court House bell rang the alarm of fire in the Third
District, and t few minutes sftewards the sky was
lighted up with that lurid glare which betokens the
presence of « great conflagration. The Fire De
partment speedily turned out, and .were guided by
the light of tho Mill Furnishing Establishment of
T. W. Baxter, on tho. corner of West Washington
and West Water streets, standing between tbs
railroad track of the Pittsburg and Fort Wayne
company and the river. The factory occupies a
block composed of two buildings, the aggregate
size of which Is ISO feet long by 66 In breadth and
font stories in height. One of these buildings is
composed wholly of wood, the bottom story being
perfectly open on two sides. The other is of stone
with the upper story composed of wood. In this
upper room was stored a largs quantity of dried
’ lumber, and it waa hers that the fire commenced.
The engines immediately on their arrival ob
tained a good supply ol water, and jpeedilv threw
1 a large quantity upon the burning piles. But the
most energetic efforts ot the firemen seemed futile.
The flames had acquired a strong hold, and seemed
to defy all efforts to bring about their subjugation,
hurling their fiery tongues high into the air, light
ing up the whole vicinity witatho brightness of
midday, and rapidly and sorely spreading on their
destructive course.
Abouthalf an hour after tho arrival of the Depart
ment, toe roof, which was a composition one. and
bad hitherto confined the flames, fell in with a
lued crash, scattering showers or sparks far and
near, and allowing the fire to burn with even in
creased vigor. But the firemen worked bravely,
their energetic Chleffrom a conspicuous part of the
dangerous pile, directed their efforts with hla
usual precision, and the men did not move from
their dangerous positions until a few seconds be
fore the upperwooden wall ofthe factory fell out
wards to tie ground, simost hurling them to cer
tain destruction. This fall though seemingly only
tendingto give the flames Increased freedom was
the death blow to the combustion. Those puny
streams, which appeared hut to add to the fury of
the devouring element, were its destined conquer-
OrsJand could now pour in on all sides: undeterred
and eo well were they directed that before nine
o'clock the flames were subdued, sad In thsir
Since large masses of lurid, smoke hang over the
mlding, enly waiting fora cessation of aqueous
hostilities, to hurst Into active combustion.
That cessation, however, waa not part of the fire
men's programme, and by a little after nine o'clock
thdr work was nearly accomplished, and tbs masa
of the fire extinguished, when they only waited to
wash out of existence any incipient signs of igni
tion which might exist.'
The flier ary, as previously stated, was partly
composed of wood and partly of stone. Tbs fire
was confined to the woooen story, which surmount
ed the stone building, though the flames extended
along the whole'roof, inflicting much damage to
the other portion. Tho block waa owned by T. R.
Armstrong, coal sad wood dealer on West Wash
ington street. lie estimates his damage at from
SS.LVO to $6,000. The Insurance doee not exceed
SB,OOO, and so, at beat, will but barely cover the
damage. The damage inflicted to Mr. Baxter’s
stock is severe and will probably not fall shorter
sls COO or SIB,OOO. He is. howerer, fully insured.
There were In the establishment a large amount of
all kinds of Grain Mill Furniture, besides some
very valuable machinery. The npper story ol the
building where the Are occurred, contained a large
assortment of lumber, which was totally consumed.
In the lower stories, toe finished goods of the Ann
were kcpLconsisimgof Bnrr Stones, Smut Mills,
Fans of all kinds. &e. These articles were much
damaged by fire and water. The north building of
the two, though wholly composed of wood fortu
nately did not suffer extensive damage! except from
the water which poured through alt the rooms In
streams. The upper story was occupied as a Mill
wright’s shop, ana in the lower ones unfinished
burr stones were kept. In thebasementwhichwas
open to the river and alto to the railroad track,
Mr. Armstrong bad a large quantity of coat This
of course, is as good ae ever.
The origin of tbs firois unknown. It com
merced In a room filled with dry lumbar, hut there
was no chimney or flue in the vicinity. Whether
it is the result of carelessness In dropping sparks
from a pipe or other article, or whether It originat
ed from the bauds of an incendiary Is uncertain,
and probably will ever remain undetermined.
POLICE COURT.
The Police Court, nnllkemany institutions, dees
not increase in interest as It gains age. The busi
ness transacted last year was of a more interesting
chaiacter than that of this, and, whereas, once up
on a time thejastice chamber was well Ailed with
spectators, bow no one thinks of attending un
less they are personally Interested In some salt
that ispendifig, or else to obtain a warrant, against
some one or other for some ml, or more generally,
imagined misdemeanor. The attendance docs not
greatly decrease, for drunks and disorderlies will
appear as long as the world bolds together, but the
assemblage is not of such a varied character as It
vas in former days. At the present time visitors
are generally purely democratic in their proclivi
ties. They not only believe that one wmi Is as
good and probably a good deal better than another,
and dedace from this proposition, that they have
as much right to their neighbor's goods as he has
bum elf, but they extend their credence to the be
lief that a man lying In the gutter or engaged in
,thrashing his wife Is eqsfcl to the man who Is a re
fspectable member|of thecomnumity. The iollow'ng

watch, valued at $75 from one William Borden.
The parties pro room-mates at Linder’s boarding
home, on the corner of Taylor and Clark streets.
On Monday, Spcnccr borrowed a key from another
boarder, and managed to effect an eutrance loto
Burden’s trunk, from which, It Is alleged, he felo
niously abstracted the watch. The article was not
found In his possession, nor had he been seen with
it, hut his honor, considering the evidence strongly
against the prisoner, held him for trial at the Re

" Soiir op tub Results op tub Wab —The
" present war has been the cause of many wsndef
'* ml changes, and has developed new and startling
“ theories, as well as the abilities snd capabilities
“of men who were before unknown. Those who
"were poor before have suddenly found them
"selves rich, and many who were afflneathave
" been reduced to poverty. Some who were proa
" pering in business in the * Sunny South,' nave
“been compelled, by the fortunes of war, to
"change their residence and their business
"location. Among this• latter class maybe
"mentioned a man well known In the booth
"in connection with the science of Materia Med
" lea, and who baa conducted and superintended
" one ol the largest hospitals In the country, for
"thecurcofdlscascscomingundcr his specialty.
" This gentleman is Dr. James, and his hospital

" yiart ;|The writer knows the Doctor well, having
" been a resident of New Orleans at the sometime,

" standing. Knowing him, then, meat favorably,
“ as a physician and a gentleman there, the writer
“ taksa pleasure In recommending him here, [ln
" Chicago] whers be has taken up his residence for
" thefuture."
DffJames practised fifteei'yearsja New Orleans,
thirteen years of which time ho conducted the lar
gest hospital Id the United States for the treatment
of private diseases—and for tbo last three ysars be
has been practising in Chicago.
Within the last fifteen years Dr. James has treat
ed mote diseases sf an infectious venereal charac
ter, successfully, than any other doctor in the Uni
ted States.
Dr. James is the only specialist treating the sex
es’ organs in the Uaitpd States—that has testimo
nials eulogistic of bis professional skill and suc
cess—from professors of Medical Colleges and hos
pitals In the United States that or* firing—not In
a foreign country—bat can be referred to at any
time.

Relief for the Afflicted.—Tho attention of
oar readers 1b requeeted to the card ofDr. Bigelow
which will be found in another column of oar
paper. The doctor has achieved an enviable repu
tation in this c.tv—a legitimate consequence of the
hlph professional skill displayed la his practice.
Gentlemen in this city of the highest respectabili
ty, and members ol tho medical xhcnltv now prac-
Uctnc in Chicago, are willing and read; to attest
bißekin. This Is a natural result of the uniform
success which follows his treatment. He never
tails to give satisfaction to his patients, and those
who In the hands of others had Begun to despair of
recover;, have b; him been quickly restored to
health and vigor. Hence, Dr. Bigelow has gather*
ed hround him hosts of friends, and his medical
practice is among the largest. He is without
doubt oca of the best medical practitioners In the
city of those treating special ’diseases. He has
paid particular attention to all forms of bodil; all*
ment, and verified the knowledge gained b; an
exhaustive stud; in an. extensive and rap*
idl; increasing practice. The most deli
cate or skeptical need not hesitate to
entrust themselves to his care.- It is in the
most aggravating cases that bis skill is displayed.
Thcnsands of testimonials in his possession from
persons of undoubted integrity show that his abili
ties are folly appreciated. His rooms are open day
and evening, and his arrangements for receiving
visitors are so complete that distinct rooms, with
separate entrances, are provided for each, bo that
all may visit him In strict confidence.
There are bat few .physicians who, making the
tres'meot of Special Diseases an object of study,
are entitled to confidence. In the great majority
of cases, the so-called universal practitioner reads
a book or two, and, depending only on the gulli
bility of the public, and the natural indisposition
of the victim to expose his extortionate Ignorance,
gives to himself the name of Dr., and commences
a series of impositions. Dr. Bigelow is a graduate
of one of the best medical colleges on this conti
nent, and his professional career has amply Justi
fied the granting of hia diploma. The press of
this and other cities place the Doctor’s skill be*
yond the question of a doubt. We say to those
needing blo pcmces. cad at his rooms, Ho 179

The expedition under CoL Moore, of the Slth

ingto the vicinity of Mayfield, They met only a
small force of guerillas under one Captain Kcster.
On Saturday night last while op? forces were en

about thirty of his men, made a descant upon and
captured eleven of our pickets, and carried them
off without much loss to himself.
On Snnday onr force was withdrawn from that
vicinity and returned to Columbus, having accom
plished the object of their march, whatever that
may have been. Through defective information, a
great proportion of the damage done the country
by the reconnolssance, was visited upon Union in
habitants, whilst the rebels and rebel sympatulzers
were left in comparative peace,
■ The steamer Superior, Captain Dexter, has ar
rived from' Red River, bringing the latest dates and
New Orleans papers of the 8d Inst. The Superior
was hit by six shells from a rebel battery up Red
River and badly riddled, and two men killed and
seventeen wounded upon her upward trip. She
was also fired upon on her downward trip. The
soldiers on board silenced the batteries with the
aid of Captain Dexter’s men, who were armed with
.muskets, the Captain himself doing gallant service
with a Henry’s repeating ride.' The officers of the

FROM ST. PAUL.
ninnesota General and military News
[Special Dispatch.to the Chicago Tribune.]
St. Paul, May 11,' tt6L
The Clnclinati Enquirer's report that Gen. Pope
is going to Washington with several thousand
troops, and militia are to be sent on tho frontier,
is a canard. Gen. Sully is on the evo of marching,
and a battalion] of troops has already left Fort
Snelllog to join him on tbo Missouri.
The Bth regiment, mounted infantry, and 2d cav
alry are being equipped at the fort for the expedi
tion and will leave as soon as tho grass will afford
subsistence for tho animals. To change to militia
troops now would defeat tho whole campaign, as
to he effective the troops most move soon. An
other hatch of rebel deserters came up uncur guard
yesterday to fight the Indians. The new enroll
ment of this State has been ordered by Col. Fry.
A rumor from Fort Abercrombie says, that when
Major Hatch’s command startedfrom Pembina for
that post, a eqnad of soldier* killed the two Sioux
chiefs who were prisoners—Utile SlzaudMedlcine
Bottle. The soldiers have long threatened to do
this for fear the President would suspend the sen
tence of death. This rids the earth sf two of the
most prominent and brutal chiefs among the hos
tile Indians.
Tbs expedition from this State, under Colonel
Thomas, is ordered to start from Camp Pope,
which is on the Mine river, 150 miles‘from here, on
the 58th. It consists ofthe 6th regiment mounted
Infantry, 2nd cavalry and a battery of artillery. The
6th regiment la .ordered to leave Sank Centre far
the camp to-morrow. The cavalry and artillery
leave Fort Spelling next week. This force will
aim to join Sully at a given point on the Missouri,
and the two expeditious will then move against the
hostile Indians, The plan is very good, but time
will have to tell the story of Its execution.
St. Paul, May 10.— I The supply of wheat lathis
State Is apparently inexhaustible. Every steam
boat coes down loaded to Us utmost capacity, and
yet the tonnage capacity of all the boats and Barges
on the river la not equal to tho demands upon it.
The largest shipping point on tbd Upper iliaals
sini Is Winona, through which, port nearly one
third of the entire surplus grain or the State is ex
ported.
The Northean Belle had on board to-day some 80
deserters from the rebel army, who, at different
times, came Into onr lines and took the oath of
allegiance. They were being Conveyed to Fort
Snelling, where they will be incorporated into the
Sd Minnesota Battery, a company composed most
ly of rebel deserters, who are to be sent one to
fight the Indians.
The river la rising, thanks to the rains. It la to
be hoped these rains have extended to the tributa
ries or the river above ns, so as to let out tho lum
ber which Is locked up by the low water. Lumber
men tell us there arc millions of logs up the Black

The other is the now celobrlons case of Inness va.
Boss, as entitled In tho Coart below, brought to
this Court by the Messrs. Boss, the second time,'
the judgment against them being for SIO,OOO,
