THE LOSS OF LIFE HEAVY.
NEW YORK, Oct.lo.—A Chicago
dispatch says: "It is now , certain the
-loss of life has been very heavy. A
,whole wagon load of dead bodies was
carried through Wabash• Avenge last
evening, but T. could not learn' any
ing as to the precise rammer of their
I death. It is said by some to have
been the result of an explosion of
,spirits; by others to have been caus
ed by #n HT* walls. • Measures have
been adopted to preserve-a discrip
tion of their , bodies. - Thus far the
city has been spared any violent dis
order or robberies. Panic and dread
- are übiversal. Even the roughs and
thieves are awed by to terrible ca
lamity. All the citizen's are complete
ly exhausted. Should the-rem:m(ler
.f the city be threatened little could
be done to avert it" -
THE an ON THE NORTH BIDE .#OP TEE
Ciacaoo, Oct. 10—Noon.—The fire
eontined to burn all last night on the
north side, but this .morning is un
der control. It is literally true that
there is nothing remaining of that
aide from the river south to Lincoln
Piqk on the north, and from the
nath branch of-the river on the west
to the lake on the east.
This , portion of the city, cicept
along the main ' river, where there
were businetis blocks was occupied
by dwollirtgi. Two-thirds of the
population of this district were Ger
mans and Scandinavians. These
people -, are now homeless, come of
them in frame buildings on the north
western section and others on the
prairies without shelter.
THE TIRE OR THE WEST EIDE.
Throughout the day yesterday a
renewal of the wall of o fire on the
west side was looked for,and a change
of five degrees in the direction of the
wind would have led to this result.
There would then have' T bfien no re
fuge for any. Everybody had their
clothing packed ready to start for
the praries at any moment; but God
averted this last possible addition to
R4.n AT LAST,
alt sundoWn the wind lulled, and
at three o'clock this morning the
rain so fervently prayed came. It
did not rain long, but the roofs of
the houses and the ground have been
wet; so that now it is possible to have
fires and cook food for the multitude.

Cruckoo, Oct. 10.---We give a re
port of the fire and its incidents al
ready prepared fbr the Associated
Press by those who - witnessed and
fought the flames throughout.
Late on Sunday evening a boy
went into a stable on Dekonen street,
near the river, on the west side, to
milk a cow, carrying with him a ker
osene lamp. This was kicked' over
,cow and the burning fluid
scattered among the strain. This
was the begining of. the great fire.
' A single extinguisher on the ground
or active work on the part of the po
lice in tearing down one or two slum
ties,would have prevented the spread
fng of the flames; but
were wafted Air; r sod w'they lie

Meanwhile the &misled -crossed
the river north of Twelfth streeVon
to the south nide, and made for the
brick and stone blockii; "railroad
freigltdepots and manufacturing es
tabli.imenta. Then the fall extent
of the danger .Was realized for .the
first time. The Fire . Department,
already tired out, worked like heroes,
and the Mayor and city government
began to exert themselves, but the
right opportunity had now been lost.
The time when a thorough organ
ization would have blown up the
buildings or prepared for an emer
geneywas neglected, and it was now
a fight for life The wind blowing a
stiff gale, had; possession of the .
flames, a'nd the beautiful buildings of
Chicago's glory lay before them.
,Harrison, Van Baron, Adams,
Monroe and Maddisah streets, were
soon -reached, and the blocks from
the river to Dearborn street on the
east, being , consumed. Three-quar
ters of a mile of brick blocks were
-consumed as if by magic.
It bekid Sunday the „proprietors ,
and emp loyes were at home, utterly s ea
tuaconktons of what what was trans- rein
pirino Those 'who saw the flames elm
supposed it was the remains of Sat- Jot
urday night's fire, having confidence an,
in the Fire Department were neon- ,S;
corned; but between 11 and 12
o'clock a rumor got abroad that the
fire was in the business` portion of
the city : • Then, tie people cominenc ,
ed moving. Horses were brought in
to requisition..th take the proprietors
and others- to' the conflagration.
What a scene met their gaze! The
Board of trade, Court House, West
ernynion Telegraph and Associated
Press office; and hundreds of other
buildings siere-aIP-aflatee. The air
was filled with live coals, which wore
hurled to the north and east. The
fire engines were powerless, for all
the saving that men could do was in
blowing up builditigs; but this avail
The Times, Tribune, Post, Republi
can, Journal, and other newspaper
offices; the Western News Company;
Block, Field & Leistex's establish
ment; the Drake block, recently built,
Farwell d, Co.'s—all were soon in
ashes. 'lt seemed that no sooner had
the flames struck a wall than they
went directly - through, and a very
few minutes sufficed to. destroy the
most elaborately `. - Amilt structures.
IWalls melted, and the very brick'
were consumed. The wooden pa °-
Intents took fire, 'rattling a con ous
sheet of flame two miles long by -- a
mile wide,_and no human being
could possiby survive many minutes.
Block after block fell; and the red
hot coals abet higher and higher,
and spread farther and farther until
the north side of Lake street was a
vast sheet of flame from the river to
the lake, and 'at one time so hemmed
the people that it was expected that
thousands must perish. The Sher
man, Tremont, and other hotels Were
emptied of their guests, and a re
markable 'Sight presented itself in
the harrying throngs, with trunks,
sacks. or bags on their shoulders,
fleeing amid the flames for-their lives.
Those who could made for the re
maining bridges, others got next to
the lakikshore, and so to the south.
One block in-all the vast business
section remained at daylight, viz.,
the Tribune - - block. The . Mom
House and (he Honore block on
Dearborn street had burned, and
those who had fought - the _flames
here thought at least this block
could be saved. A patrol of men un
der Samuel Medill, swept off the live
coals and put out the flames inside
the wane, and another company of
men, under the direction of Hon. Jo:
seph Medill, watched the rocig4. At
half-past seven o'clock this appeared
safe, and most of the men went to
get rest or food.
A number went to sleep in the
Tribune building; but there was soon
a change of mind. The flames reach
&A Wabash and State streets and
Michigan avenue, and won l'iliVick
er's Theatre caught fire. In a few
moments the. Tribune bailaing, was in
flames, and at the laSt moment the
sleeping men were aroused and - res
cued. By 10 o'clock
this remaining block WO., in ashes.
Now waste - he seen a most terrible
sight: There were from fifty to sev
enty-five thouSalid men, women and
children fleeing by every available
street and alley, to the southward
and westward attempting to save
their clothing and their lives.
Every available vehicle was brought
into requisition for use, for which
enormous priees were paid, and the
streets and side walks presented a
remarkable, eight. , Thousands of
persons and horses were inextricably
commingled. - Poor people of col
ors.and shades and of every nation
ality; mad with excitement, struggled
with each other to get away. Hun
dreds were trampled under foot.
Men and women were loaded with
bundles and their household goods,
to whose skirts were clinging small
children, half-dressed and bare-foot
ed, and seeking a place of. safety.
Hours .afterwards- these might have
been seen s in vacant lots or on the
streets 'far out in suburbs, stretched
in the __dust, There were hundreds
distracted and many made desperate
by' the.whiskey and beer which they
had drank in the absence of water,
1 1 in great quantities, who spread them
selves in every direction, a terror to
all they met.
It is fearful to think of the loss of
life. It is -conjectured, with good
cause, that nearly five handful* have
been banaed to death. We sat four
men enter a burning building, and
in a moment they were overwhelmed ,
by,a tilling wall. There was a crowd
of men around a corner of a building
trying to 'I save property, when the
wall yielding, somgbof them were
buried beneath it. !About twelve or
fifteen men, women and children
rushed into. the building of the His
torical Society, a fire proof building,
for safety. In a few minutes the
flames burst up, and they were burn
ed to death. -
Among) those who took refuge in
this building was the venerable Col
onel Samuel Stone, eighty, years 'of
.age, for a long time connected With
the Society, also, - John' B. Gerard
and wife, and Mme. Depeigr, one, the
noted teacher of music. It is feared
that Dr. Frean and family were also
buried, as they were in the building
and have not been seen since. Mrs.
.Edsall,whose husband was murdered
last week, and who was suffering
from an illness, was carriedlway for
protection to a building, which was
afterwards consumed, and it is fear
ed that she also perished.

MESSAGE. rum' C,1101.75E OF /31811011.
A message was received from the
' use of Bishops, transmitting the
f (3wi e
n C g o r m ep m o iee o
.Fives ifo rinity
of ßishops rit-
appointed by the House of Bishops,
al the General 'Convention of 1868,
to consider whether any additional
provision of uniformity, by canon or
otherwise, is practicable and 43Mr.
out, and to report that the next Gen
eral Convention, having held 'sundry
meetings at 'several differentplaces,
at each of which all the members of
the 'committee were present through
the entire session, and having, as
they believe,. ,given to the subject
matter entrusted to them that care
ful consideration which its importance
Merits, respectfully ask leave to re
port:. The resolution under which
the committee was appointed raises
several questions for evAmination and
sorer: Is any legislation touching
te performance of divine service
d the administration of the sacra.
ment and other rites and ceremonies
of the Church practicable; and if
practicable; is it at this time expedi-,
eat; and if practicable and expefflent, ,
shall it take the shape of a - canon or.
canons; or, shall it be otherwise pro=
vided for; and, finally, what shall the
actual details of legislation be?
Assuredly these are questions that
touch the Church and its ministers
and members in many very vital
points, and involve many delicate a
well as precious relations: In con
sidering these questions, the Commit
tee have endeavored never to forget
that substantial uniformity is entire
ly compatible with very considerable
individual liberty, that non-essentials
should never be unduly =Signified,
and far , less raised to an !equality
with essentials; that many 1 trolble-
some and objectionable, things are
ephemeral in their nature, and "per
ish in the using," , and thit, under
any circumstances, hasty legislation
is ever to be avoided; nor have they ,
omitted to keep in mind , the wise
words of the Thirty-fonith Article of
iircomxuDATimis OF Tnz cbstxtrrn
. , •
The committee report the folloWZ
ink as the matters, upon which they
respectfully recommend legielatiOn:
