The scene in the Chicago corn exchange yesterday afternoon is thus described in a telegram: Billy McHenry, who acted as spokesman for the corn bulls in the Sep tember squeeze, offered 90 cents for a mil lion bushels. Just before the bell sound ed on 'Change, announcing the close of the trading of the regular board, the scene on the floor approached pandemonium. The com pit was too cramped for tlie mass of traders and onlookers, and tlie crowd spread out over the main floor with Mc Henry aud other active brokers mounted on the outer steps leading into the corn pit, traders mounted tables along the sides of the room and perched themselves into the window' recess, offering all sorts of cries not pertinent to the real business of trading. There were frequent rushes which sent the entire crowd reeling, in creasing the disorder and making it well nigh impossible to hear the prices offered or tendered. In reality, there were very few trades during the closing hour of the session, but prices rose steadily until 85 was touched, when McHenry offered to buy lots of a quarter, half, and an entire million, until the figure 90 was reached.

Ingersoll, ac companied by the ladies of his family and the United States consul and others, push ed their way in, although the superiutend of police had ordered tlie treasurer to stop selling tickets, and the front of the build ing had been closed. One plucky alder man took Iugersoll's part, and condemned the attempt to prevent his speaking. An account of what happened says : "The sceue that followed beggars discription. Windows and doors were smashed in, by which entrance was effected. The police were powerless to keep order or carry out instructions. The crowd was with the lecturer, and were determined to hear him. During the melee several ladies fainted. After the police found that they could not prevent the lecturer going on, they con tented themselves with endeavoring to keep order. Immediately after the lecture was over Colonel Ingersoll took a steamer for Washington Territory. Boston dispatch of Sunday: Wool quiet. A number of manufacturers are looking around, but they do not take hold with any vim. At the same time, holders appear to be confident, and not disposed to make concessions.
