Editor Dennett, of the Planters' Banner, says that if the Democ "its swallow Governor Warmoth they ill slew him up again. We agree the gentleman there. Governor iar moth's proclivities are too decide ly Republican to be borne by a DeAio erotic stomach. The salary of Mi.

Added to the nuer I oas perquisites of the office hIs pta will reach $200,000 per annum, 4md his board, lodging and washing do.isn't cost him a cent.

We notice one of the leading l mo cratic country journals of this state praising the snedfnese and high tone of the Citizens' Guard, chief orgf of the Custom-house faction. Ev, per son in the State who knows any .hing about it knows that the Guarl has not one jot of those qualities, bufair ly reeks with slang, billingsgate and personal abuse of its enemies , t is very evident that this Demoerat pa laver is administered on the 'you tickle me and I'll tickle you" b als. Major T. Morris Chester, a t.nted colored man of extensive trove and great information, recently del ered an interesting lecture in New Oleans on the subject of "an evenin with royalty." He descaihed his vi its to the courts of the crowned he rds of V.spe, and says be was every where ý;eceived with the greatest anS;pulyYMPwe'Z1i ceremony; erit, :i1 aq .ciglor, being the recomm ends .tion to f.vrpr and consideration there. Mr. Chester was often mistakem for a black ;ip ce, and avers that he would rather travel through Europ as a colored man than a white oq if he a.h any fancy for lionising. .The Citizens' Guard raises a and ,cry because, it says, a cam ~pi pam phlet recently published by the $iends of thse tate Administration ws sent gom the Mobile post-office o the Nor i~ea of being sent t tough the New Orleans oflee. TheiwGear says thijwas done to screen sa"i patm phlet the more effectually m the eyes of Louisiana voters. W know nothing of the circumstancer bit if t did ocour, and w wore ngked , g ,es the reason, we should att4.t it to just what the Guard'q ape~lration loads us to surmise: a fear on the part of the senders that, though tl t pam phlets might not hbe uhrilate4mong Louisiana voters, they would ttsnd a better chance of that than 4f ever reaching their intended desti ations if placed In the New Orleam post paice. A TERRIBLE FIRE. Th' EE-FOURTHS OF THE OITY OF IHIOAGO IN BRUINS Loss ofLife and Property Origin aud Progress of the Conflagration. We glean from telegraphic dispatch es to the associated press the follow ing particulars of an event seldom, if ever, equaled in history, and which will awake emotions of sympathy in the breast of every inhabitant of our land for the sufferers who have been rendered homeless by the alshost total destruction of the .once beautiful and prosperous city of Chicago : NEW YORx, O4 tober 10.-A special to the Times, from Chicago, the tenth, 2:20 A. M., says three-fourthsof Chi cago is in ruins, and the city is still burning. In the west, division Taylor and Halstead street have been swept by the flames; the waterworks went early.. There has been a fearful loss of life by falling walls. Ten thousand business men will be compelled to make assignments. An Insurance crash is inevitable. The river is im passable except at bridge twelve. The other bridges have been burned. It is feared that bridge twelve will be crushed by overwhelming travel. The railroad trains have ceased running, and there will no mails. The present losses are estimated at $200,000,000. The tire-proof buildings burned like timber. Few business houses saved even their papers. No newspapers can be published until type comes from elsewhere. 8ome vessels escaped by being sent adrift into Lake Michigan. A large number of firemen were killed. The Convent of Mercy was burned. The pavements were burned, and a hundred squares were destroyed in the south division. One hundred thousand employes are out of employment. The county records were saved. The city records were lost. At a meeting of the Germania, Hanover, Niagara and Republic insur ance companies, comprising the un derwriters' agency of New York, held to-day, due preparations were made to pay immediately, on adjustment, all losses in the Chicago fire, by doing which the capitals of all companies will remain mnimpaired. Mt f lPwPiw and Jay Cooke & Co., gavse tehi1l000 to the Chicago suffer era. J. L. Morgan & Co., London, tele I graphed their correspondents to draw $5000 for the same purpose. ME'MPHIS, October 10.-Over $20, 000 have been raised for Chicago. A monster mass meeting will be held at the Opera House to-night, to take measures for the relief of the suffer ers. CHICAGO,. October 10, Noon.--The fire continued to burn all night on the north side, but this morning is under ontrol ; nothing remaining on that side from the river north to Lin coln Park, and from the north branch of the river on the west, to the lake, east. This portion of the city, except along the main river, where there was a basiness block, was occupied by dwellings, and two-thirds" of the pop ulation of the district were Germans and Scandinavians. These people are now houseless. At three o'clock this morning the rain came; it did not rain long, but made te rootfs and ground wet. Fifteen hundred citizens have been sworn in as special police. A feral force is employed to guard proper y. One hundred thousand rations have been issued. Two men who were caught at in cendiadam were hung to a lamp post. This summary proceeding awed the thieves into harmlessness. Every train brings engines, and the firemern immediately go to work. They are now playing on the coal piles tdsave fuel. A few business men, with more nerve than others, are seeking places on the test side. Roods which rented last week for $50 not command $5000. The newspapers are already at work, )reparing for a resumption of public ton. Wateir for drinking and cooking is securesdfrom the lakes and parks. Thou anda of people are camped about tie artesian well. The people are fed in churches and school-houses. The teather was cold this morning, causing reat suffering, but the people are prntmg for more rain. 3 P. M.-Word has just been brought that a fierce fire is raging on Tbirt.y.rst street. This street is two miles sth of the southern fire limit, and a 'ttle less than that from the limit oat the west side. Severtl incendiaries are plying their vocations. Two were can ught firing btiildins and shot; two others were led off Oth ropes around their necks. As the wind is now blowing a gale, the endcanuot bhe told. One it the maost pitiful sights was that of 'middle aged woman on State stireet, taded with bundles, straggling thr a crowd snging the Mother GoosQ elody, "Chickey, my Chickey, my C ey Crow," etc. Ther, Were hundreds of others like wise diatressed, and many were made despernte by wl4hkey or beer, which, from ejcess of thirst, they drank in the abance of water in great quanti ties, who spread themselves in all directions, a terror to all they met. It is fearful to think of the loss of life. It is conjectured, with good cause, that more than five hundred persons have been burned to death. Four men were seen to enter a burning building, and in a moment they were overwhelmed by a falling wall. There was a crowd of men around the corner of a building trying to save property, when the wall yielding, some were buried beneath it. About twelve or fifteen men, women and children rushed into the building of the Historical Society, a fire-proof building, for safety; in a few minutes the flames burst up and they were burned to death. Among those who took refuge in this building was the venerable Col onel Samuel Stone, eighty years old, for a long time connected with the society; also John B. Girard and wife, and Madame le Pelgram, a noted music teacher. It is feared that Dr. Frear and family were also burned, as they have not been seen since. Mrs. Edsall, whose husband was murdered last week, and who was suffering from an illness, was carried for protection to a building which was afterwards burned, and it is feared she also perished. All books and papers of the Histori cal Society, including the original copy of the famous emancipation proclanua tion of President Lincoln, for which the society paid $25,000, was destoyed. It is feared a large number of chil dren inmates of the Catholic Orphan Asylum on State, street have been burned, as many of them are miss ing. On Chicago avenue a father rushed up stairs to carry three children away, when he was overtaken by the flames and perished with them. The mother was afterwards seen upon the street a raving maniac. In the same neighborhood a family of five persons perished. The list of such fatalities is very large, and can only be verified afterthe smoke shall have cleared away. A careful survey of insurances to day, shows that there were policies on property destroyed for over $200, 000,000. Add another $100,000,000 to this sum, and a fair estimate can be reached of the loss. All leading merchants who have been seen, express a determination to resume business at once. The Evenisg Journal and Triibne hope to publish small sheets to-mor row. A special session of the Illinois Leg islature has been called to aid basi neds meid tl froviiing eiiiployment for the poor, apprehending that suffer ing may cause crime. Additional federal troops have been called for. CHicAGo, October IO.-Origin and 1 progress of thefire.-Late on Sunday a evening a boy went into a stable on ( Dekaven street, near the river on the I the west side, to milk a cow, carrying a with him a kerosene lamp, which was kicked over by the cow, and the burn ing fluid scattered among the straw. f This was the beginning of the fire. i A single extinguisher on the ground or active work of the police in tearing e down one or two shanties, would have i prevented the spread of the flames, but the engines were waited for and t when they arrived the firemen, stupe fied by their exertions at the fires on Saturday night, worked slowly and 1 clumsily. Their efforts availed not. The wind from the southwest blew a gale and the flames shot rapidly from house to house, and from board yard to board yard. Meanwhile it had crossed the river north of Twelfth street to the south i side and extended to brick and stone business blocks, and the railroad and freight depots and manafacturing es- 1 tablishments, when the full extent of c the damage was realized for the first time. The fire dephrtment, already tired, 1 worked like heroes, and the mayor ( and city offiB ls, who had supinely I rested, now began to exert themselves, but the opportui. ty had been lost; the time when a thorough organization 1 could have blown up buildings or pre pared for an emergency, was neg lected, and it was now a flght for life. 4 The wind blowing a stiff gale had possession of the flames, and the beautiful buildings, Chicago's glory, lay before them. Thence Harrison, VanBuren, Adams Monroe and Madison streets were soon reached ; intervening blocks from the river to Dearborn street on the east side being consumed. Three-quar- 1 ters of a mile of brick blocks were consumed as if by magic. It being Sunday the proprietors and 1 employes were all at their homes, I completely unconscious of what was transpiring; those who saw the flames 4 supposed it was the remaining of Sat urday night's fire, and having confi- i dence in the fire department, were more unconcerned; but between eleven and twelve o'clock a rumor got i abroad that the fire was in the busi ness portion of the city. Then people commenced moving, horses were brought into requistion to take the property out of reach of the conflagration. What a scene met their gaze! The Board of Trade the court-house, Western Union trele graph office and the Associated Press office and hundreds of other buildings were all in flames. The air was filled with live coals, which were hurled to the north and east, a besom of des traction, The tire engines were pow erless for saving. All that men could do was to blow up buildings, but this availed little. The Times, tribune, Post, Evening Journal and other newspaper offices, the Western News Company's block, Field & Leiter's establishment, Drake's block, recently built, and Farwell & Co.'s, all were soon in ashes. It seemed that no sooner had the flames struck a wall than it went di rectly through, and a very few min utes sufficed to destroy the most elab orate structure. The walls fairly melt ed, and the verybricks were consumed. The wooden pavements took fire, making a continuous sheet of flame two miles long by one mile wide. No human being could possibly survive many minutes at any given point. Block after block fell, and the red hot coals shot higher andl higher, spread further and further, until north side was a vast sheet of flame from river to lake. " At one time it srrhemmed the peo ple in that it was expected that thou sands must perish. The Sherman, Tremont and other hotels were emptied of their guests, and a remark able sight presented itself in hurry ing throngs, sacks or bags on their shoulders, fleeing amid the flames for their lives. Those who could, made for the burning bridges, others got to the lake shore and south side. But three blocks of all the vast bus iness section remained at daylight, viz: The Tribune block, Custom-house and Honore block, on Dearborn street, and those who had fought the flames here thought that at least the Tribune block could be saved. Parties of men nnder Sam Medill swept off the live coals and put out the flames inside the walls, and an other lot of men under the direction of the Hon. Joseph Medill, watched the roofs at half-past seven o'clock. This appeared safe and most of the men went to get rest or food and a number went to sleep in the Tribune building, but there was a change of the wind, and the flames reached Wa bash avenue, State street and Michi gan avenue. Soon McVicker's theatre caught fire, and in a few moments the Tribune building was in flames, andat the last moment the' sleeping men were aroused and rescued from the flames. By ten o'clock in the fore noon, this remaining block was in Now was to be seen the most re- a nmarkable sight ever beheld in this or c any other country. There were from c fifty to seventy-five thousand men, p woman and children fleeing, Thy every 1I available street and alley, to the south- 9 ward and westward, attempting to t save their lives. 5 Every available vehicle was brought t -into requisition, for the use of wFElys i enormous prices were paid. The streets and sidewalks presented a fear- t ful sight. Thousands of people and t horses were inextricably commingled. e Poor people of all colors and shades, I and of every nationality, from Europe, I China and Africa, mad with excite- a ient, struggled with each other to get I away. The National Bank of Commerce 1 opened its vaults this morning, and I found the books, money and securities in perfect order. The general agent of the AEtna In surance Company announces their Q readiness to pay every dollar. Drivers of express wagons have ob tained from one hundred to five hun dred dollars for an hour's service. Hundreds of intoxicated men and boys Were on the streets, many of whom perished in the flames. Women and children ame wandering t about the burnt district, hungry. An immense number of persons are missing. Two companies of United States infantry have arrived, and will be im- I mediately placed on patrol duty. NEW YORK, October 10.-The report 1 that a fire had broke out again in Chi- 4 cago, and was burning fiercely,is pos itively contradicted by a dispatch from I General Anson Stager, of the Western 1 Union Telegraph Company, now at Chicago, to General O. H. Palmer, i treasurer of the company here. Gen- 4 eral Stager states that a fire started in I a small house on Thirty-first street, in the south division, this evening, but I was speedily extinguished. Incendiaries were busy, but seven a or eight had been hanged or shot at I sight. 4 The Spectator, an insurance journal, says: "None of the leading corpora- I tions are insolvent. A great majority 1 of the companies will pay the losses i at once. Some have already begun to 4 put assets in order to liquidate their obligations." The Spectator intimates I that the actual losses of the companies will not much exceed $35,000,000. Ru mor says that eight companies have I failed, but better await official an- 1 nouncements. The president of the International Company leaves for Chi cago to make settlements. WAsHINoroN, October 10.-The sub treasury at Chicago lost $2,000,000, I of which $500,000 was in gold. NEW YORK, October 10.-A. Bel- 4 mont, Duncan, Sherman & Co., and I Brown Brothers gave five thousand I dollars each. Some of the losses of the New York insurance companies are stated as fol- I lows: Citizens' $25,000, Hanover t.20 000, Columbia $300,000, Republic I $225,000, Tradesmen's $25,000; Ger mania and Niagara not stated. 1 The Hartford and Phoenix insurance a companies have issued a circular, ad vising their agents and patrons that I they can meet their losses, leaving a handsome margin of surplus. The i circular concludes: The lesson of this disaster will compel a liberal advance on rates hitherto paid. The J$Oyee-Hierron Case. a Decision Adverse to Bovee-Gov. War moth'; Action Sustained. Judge Emerson, presiding in the Eighth District Court of New Orleans a during the absence of Judge Dibble, a on Monday of this week rendered the following decision in the case of Geo. E. Bovee vs. F. J. Herron, a suit un- a der the intrusion act to regain posses- t sion of the office of Secretary of State: The Governor suspended the Secre- c tary of State, and assigned the defend- p ant to the duties of that office ad in- t terimn. Whereupon these pro#eeJiags r were commenced to test the validity 1i of that act, and under them the de- c fendant is charged with being an in- ( truder into the office and .with unlaw fully exercising its functions. Hejus- e titles under the appointment, which he I asserts was consequent upon malver sation by the Secretary. c On the part of the relator it is e claimed that the Executive can law- I fully exercise no power which is not 1 expressly granted by the organic and statutory law, and such other powers t as may be necessary to carry the ex- t tress grant into effect; and that the g act in question, being without the I sanction of express law, is illegal and e an usurpation. It is conceded that the Governor cannot remove a constitutional officer, ( and that he cannot resort to suspension a where a mode of accomplishing that r object has been provided by law. t The offices of Secretary, Treasurer and Auditor are not positions of the r legislative or judicial departments. f Hence, the argument against the in-I terference of one branch of the gov- t ernment with the duties of another, ( has no application in this case. Here the question is not one of re- t r moval and thus creating a vacancy, but of suspension; so that the problem I to be solved is whether in the absence I of ;any constitutional or statutory pro vision an emergency might not arise I in which the Governor n mild be jus- i tiftled in suspending an officer from hid Undoubtedly emergencies may hap- I pen in which the public interests would I be protected by prompt and speedy I action, before the Legislature could be convened or a criminal prosecution could be terminated. Indeed, emer gencies may happen in which the law had made no provision whatever. In such cases what steps can be legally taken s The Legislature not being in session, perhaps can do nothing; and the judiciary could not take cogni zance of the matter. But is the Gov ernor powerless to act ? Are his hands tied to the extent of compelling him to remain passive, and witness a rep etition or continuance of fraud and peculation without the right to inter fere? Around the offices of Auditor and Treasurer guards have been placed, and certain of their acts are declared to be misdemeanors and higldy venal offences; but as to un lawful acts on the part of the Secreta ry the law is silent. No oicial act oficial act of his, either of nonfeasance, misfeasance or malfeasance, is made criminal by r statute, and yet, so far as executive power is concerned, he can, it is claimed, set the law at defiance. Some of hisduties are prescribed by the con stitution and others by legislative net Satment. Suppose the Treasurer sheold Sppropriate to his own use the fnemds of the State, is power lodged nowhere to apply a prompt and efficient rem edy? In the former supposition, the law furnishes none, and in the latter the slow process of accusation, indict ment and trial, or of examination aind report by named ofiicials, must be re sorted to, and in both, according to s the argument, the Executive is with Sout authority. In the words of the constitution, 1 not simply the executive power, but 1 the " supreme executive power" is t vested in the Chief Magistrate; that is to say, he may use authority which does not reside elsewhere. He is sworn to support the constitation. Article 65 requires him to to ake care t that the laws are faithfully executed. This injunction forms a separate and distinct article, as if to make the t requirement more emphatic. It is a command; it imposes an imperative duty; it is an investment of power not delegated to either of the other branches of the Government; apd if a it can be used only where express'law defines and authorizes its exercise, the r article is a dead letter and means a nothing. On what' occasions and in a what manner shall he " take care that the laws be faithfully executed ?" Not B by remaining an idle spectator of of Sfcial infidelity, but by stepping for ward at once and protecting the nter est of the State, especially where no remedy is expressly provided. Where a remedy and a mode of procedure are provided, they must be followed, but where they are not provided, the Gov ernor still is commanded to see to the I faithful enforcement of the law; aml I having that power he also hielthe ad ditional power to carry the express a grant into effect, and this implied au thority may be used in such manner as to reader it effectual. Therefare, if e he is to take care that the lawsbe faithfully executed, he has the power to take such means as may be neces~ e sary to their execution; and i( in the performance of this clear and impns t tive duty, it becomes necessary to as s pend an unfaithful offcer titn his functions, the right to do eols evidtnt. s The care which he most take must be e construed to extend to all eases in which the public welfare is MJsaazsd, and n" irpress provisoe n exists to remedy the evil. Article 122 of the eonstmtation re quires all officers to dishbarge their duties until their successors are quali fled, except jn ,cses of iipeachmnet or suspensio . fle powarf.suspen sion is thus distinetly recog"ied as residing somewhere, and wsphe law is silent who ean exercise it ? ,Cearly not the judiciary, .and a Legi ature adjourned is powerless. The eacep tions stated in the article are i .the disjunctive, so that the one may exist without the other. Consequently it cannot refer to suspension as an inde pendent act; and since the .onistitu tion does not expressly cenfer the right upon the Legislature, nor limit its exercise to that .body, it ay, in case of mergea.s , be exerased by the Chief Magistrate. The right of the Governor.to ejer cise power not expressly delegated to him by law is upheld by the Supreme Court, in the case of Mahan s. D*tbu clet, 22 An., 602. The appeal in that case was taken by the Executive, the Attoreey Gxnesta being then absebt. A motion was made to dismiss the ap peal On the ground, among others, thiat the Governor was without power to prosecute it. The court said: This ground is untenable, the Governor be ing the proper representative of the State and bound to protect her inter ests, I have no doubt, therefore, that the Governor has a right to suspend an officer wbhe in his opinion it becomes necessary to do so iu ordr to protect the interests of the State. Even under our syste_ of Goverp ment, where ll auithority emanates from the people, the Chief Magistrate is not designed to he mere automa ton, bound to follow none bet specifi cally prescribed rules, Elevated to the highest dignity of the Sutat, he is clothed with extraor diunary power, apparently to enable him to take responsibilities whenever the e.igencies of the moment require prompt action, and the faculty. of granting relief is not granted by ex press law. Under these considerations the court is not at liberty and it is not within its province to Inqtfir into the reasons assigned by the Governor for the sus pension of the Secretary, or of their sufficiency. Let these proceedings be dismissed with costs, .. . -'-m .1 ... . . The Handsome Xayoress of the Communists. Galignani furnishes a report of the trial of Marie Leroy, widow, who was called "the hndsome Mayorees of the Communists." . She was charged, first, with having, by cries and men aces, endeavored to exeite an at tempt to cause devastation and mas sacre in the city of Paris; second, of complicity in assisting Urbain in his violence and robbery of a person named Landau; third, of complicity in the abstraction of the funds destined for instruction in the Seventh aron dissemont (St. Germain). The pris oner, who is a good looking young woman, fair, with bright blue eyes, twenty-one years of age, was ele.Itiy dressed. During UlQ fSst siege of Paris, she replaced the p musemet of the theatres and J wbhice had been closed by the exrctewen.t of poli ties. She attelded the varjous cufib, and frequently addresse the audi ences, who were faseigted by her beauty, and her r"eday ow of Jan guage. At one of toese, the Pre au Cleres, Rue du B$c, a)b encountered Urbain and speedily obtained an un ~bouaded empire over him. After wards, when the Commune was insti tuted and he wa" delegated t9 administer in the Seventh arondisseR meat, she aeeompanied him to the Marie, where they took up their abode, and she appears to have usurped an unlimite. authirity, and to have been the soul of the iasurrec. tion in that quarter, and to hatv been the instigator of numerous resharches, in which abe generally ,a eonipaied Urbai. In one of these exrplitioni. that 'mentioned in the in ctmen, she wrim a&msed1'a fi g carried a. the jewelIy ifoulr~arian das, and witnesses wr $ ead to prove that they had seen her Wearing rings belonging tb that person. Al though possessed of nomeaeAs of her own, she made herself comaplsuuas by her purchases of-expensive articles, and putiudelrly as rag Pds her deas. A number of 4iftnesses Were called to establish the foregoa~g &thet, and after an eloquent gddesas, from M.
