men were burned to death at that place and

the rest Is gone by this time.
Chicago, Oct.7, 12:30 a. m. The most
terriblo conflagration that has ever occurred
in this city broke out about an hour and a
half ago; and having already swept over six
cntire'blocks, is still raging with unabated
fury. The fire started in a large
planing mill, situated between Clinton and
Canal and VanBuren and Jackson streets,
about the centre of the block formed by
these streets. The wind blowing very fresh,
the flames spread almost incredibly rapid,
and in a few miuutes the entire structure
was a mass of fire.
The immediate vicinity is built up mainly
with small wooden tenement houses, and
two story fronts occupied as groceries,
saloons, etc The inmates of many of
these houses, startled from slumber, had
barely time to rush from the houses with
scanty attire, at night, leaving their house
hold goods to destruction. In several in
stances clnldren were liastily wrapped in

were of little avail.
Between Canal street and ,the river were
several lumber yards which are entirely de
stroyed. At tliis hour the fire has made a
clean sweep from Van Buren street north
two blocks to Adam's, and west to Clinton
three blocks from the river. The wharves
between Van Buren and Jackson streets are
burning and the wood work of the western
approach to Adams street bridge is de
stroyed. A large coal yard containing thousands
of tons of soft coal, and situated between
the tracks of the Chicago and Alton, and
Pittsburg and Fort Wayne Railroad and the
river, is on fire and burning furiously .
Tlie immense grain elevator of Vincent,
Nelsn & Co., one of the finest in the city,
is immediately adjoining, and though in
tended to be fire proof there seems to be
little doubt that it will be destroyed as the
intense heat to which it is subjected will
crack the slate with which it is covered on
both roof and sides. It contains many
thousand bushels of grain of all kinds.
The depot of the Pittsburg and Fort
Wayne and Chicago, Alton and St. Louis
Railroads is situated north of Adams aud
between Canal street and the river. One
of the buildings, a light wooden structure
occupied as ail express office, was in flames
at midnight and is undoubtedly destroyed.
The scenes in the vicinity of the .confla
gration are indescribaby. Half the popula
tion of the city seems gathered there. The
tugs in the river are engaged in stowing
to places of safety the vessels moored in
the neighborhood, while the locomotives
are hastily pulling out the great number of

auuiuuuai provision lor unnormity uy the
convention or otherwise is practicable and
expedient and to renort at the next rren-

ings at several different places at each of
niucaau me members ot the committee
were present throunh the entire session and
having as they believed give to the subject
matter entrusted to themft hat careful consid
eration wnicn its importance merits, res
pectfully ask leave to report the resolution
udder which the committee was appointed
to raise the several questions for examina
tion ana answer:
''Is any legislation touhinn the nerform
ance of divine service, and the administra
tipn of the sacraments and other rites and
ceremonies of the church practicable? If
practicable, is It at this time expedient? If
practicable and expedient shall it take the
shape of a canon or canons, or shall it be
otherwise provided for, and finally, what
snau do tne actual details oflegislation ?"
Assureuijr mese are questions that touch
the church and its members in many and
ery vital points, and involve many delicate
as well as precarious relations. In con
sidering those questions the committee have
endeavored never to forget that substantial
uniformity is entirely compatible with very
consiaerauie individual iioerty; that non
essentials should never be undulv maonified
ana jar less raised to an equauty with essen
tials; that many troublesome and objection
able things are ephemeral in their nature
and peevish in using, and that under
any circumstances liasty legislation
is ever to be avoided. Nor have they omit
ted to keep in mind the wise words of tho
30tharticle of religion: "It is not necessary
inai traditions and ceremonies be in and at
all places utterly alike, for at all times they
nave oeen diverse and may be changed ac
cording, to diversities of countries, times and
men's manners, so that nothing be ordained
against God's Word. Every particular or
national church have authority to ordain.
change and abolish ceremonies or rites of
the church ordained only by man's authori
ty, so that all tilings be done to edifying."
While, liowever, the committee have kept
these considerations in view, it has been
and Is their unanimous opinion that some
action of a general convention, in regard to
tne important matters named in the resolu
tion appointing them is very desirable, if
not indeed absolutely demanded. Among
many reasons lor this conviction that pre
sent themselves, they venture to ask atten
tion to the following :
i. it is obvious to remark that there are
among us great and growing diversities of
use in the penormance ot divine service and
officers of church. Unless something is
done, and done soon, in the interests of uni
formity these diversities bid fair to equal, if
they do not exceed, those which at the per
iod oi tne Angencan reiormation were re
garded as an evil to be removed, and which
led to the decision tliat the whole realm
should have but one usage. ' They occasion
moreover, even now, confusion, trouble and
perplexity among our people, and these evils
must increase as their causes are multiplied.
2. It is believed that the various services
fover and above those provided In the Book
(of Common Prayer, or set forth in accord-
canon 18 and 14, of tlie digest, and not
coming under the denomination of Sunday
'or other school services are probably used in
certain churches, iiow tar liberty is in this
regard to be allowed, or in what respect it is
to be retained, the committee do not under
take to say. It is obvious, however, that
any such services are a serious disorder and
confusion in proportion as they are framed
on principles! and embody acts, words and
forms, come these from what outside quar
ter they may, tliat are not in accord with
the doctrine, discipline and worship of our
own Church or are foreign to the genius and
spirit of our services.
3. Tlie Committee have reason to be
lieve that in some instances the services of
the prayer book are unlawfully altered or
mutilated and in others are so performed as
to make it difficult, to say the least, to dis
tinguish them, except in the language em
ployed, from those of the church of Rorue.
Against such wrongs our people Iiave a
right to demand protection, and whether
they demand it or not it would seem a plain
and bound duty to provide for it.
For these reasons, besides others, winch
it is not necessary to rehearse, the commit
tee unanimously recommend action by
the present General Convention, and after
maturely weighing the different modes in
which this recommendation may be carried
out, they further unanimously recommend
that any action which tlie Convention may
take sliall be in form of a canon or canons.
In proceeding to state the various details
which they believe right to be made the
subjects of such action as has been proposed,
the committee desire to say that while on a
great majority of points presented there has
been entire unanimity of opinion, some
things are nevertheless proposed, and others
omitted, which, had each member's Indi
vidual wish regulated the final result,
would have been differently disposed of.
They have strongly felt tliat uniformity
necessarily involves the giving up of some
things and the acceptance of others which
individuals may desire on the one hand to
retain, or on the other to remove.
The committee rcpor; tho following as
matters upon which they respectfully recom
They recommend that certain acts in the
administration of the holy communion, and
other occasions of public worship hereinafter

toward which adoration is to be made, in

to or from the communicant.
C. The mixing of water with the wine as

allowed and provided for by the Rubric or
Canon, it being provided that reverence at
the mention of the name of the Lord Jesus
is not intended to be allowed, and being
further provided that private jiersonal devo
tion before or after the official ministration,
is not to be understood to include or justify
any of the acts prohibited.
9. The celebration or receiving of the
Holy Communion by any bishop or priest,
when no person receives it with him.
10. Employing or permitting any person
or persons not in holy orders to assist the
minister in any part of the order for ad
ministration of the Holy Commnnion.
11. Using at any administration of the
Holy Communion any prayers, collects,
gospels or epistles, other than those provided
m tlie book of common prayer, or under
XIV of Canon 13 of title 1 of the digest.
They further recommend here :
1. That no rector of a parish, or other
minister, are allowed to introduce choral
service without consenting to a vote of the
vestry, or contrary to the prohibition of the
2. That no surpllced choir shall be em
ployed except under the same limitations,
and when such choirs are employed, the

FINE SADDLE STOCK.
The programme opened yesterday with
the exhibition of saddle stock, and the dif
ferent rings showed a desired improvement
over past years. The contest in a number

In this contest, but after several attempts.
the judges finally settled down on little

THE FAST TROT
There was no competition for tlie premi
um offered to the best and fastest
trotting horse, mare or gelding. Rattler
was the only contestant, and after a 2:40
trot the decision was given in his favor.
Tennessee took a similar premium on Fri
day without opposition, and for Rattler to
step in ditto the day following, it looks like
uie owners ot mese respective animals were
afraid to let them come together.
The fine display of vegetables in Aericul-
tural Hall were not passed by unnoticed
yesterday, but on the contrary, this depart

not only liberal, but fine, scattered broad

their supplies. We came in for our share of
the good things, for which we make ac

premiums awarded in this hall, and a res
pectable amount of blue ribbon disposed of
by the judges.

unanimous decision among outside parties
tliat the judges had shown good taste in
making the award.

The half mile was made in 1:38, Gray's

came up on the flanks of Gray, but the lat
ter threw him off, and came to the stand a
half length in advance. Time 2:53.
Third Heat. Gray again leads offhand
somely, and was lapped at the fourth by
Doctor, who immediately afterwards broke
up, Gray passing the half mile considerabjy

ed his speed, and came to the stand an easy
winner of the heat in 240
Second Heat. Hundley again leads,
closely pressed by Nicholson, the other en

vantage in position at the start, and keeps
in the lead throughout, taking the lieat in
Fourth Heat. Nicholson again got the
