more disastrous in one, last night. It is impossible yet to learn but a "very- few names of the sufferer. The entire list will probably embrace several hundred. No approximate estimate can yet fee madq of the total loss, as the progress of the flames has not yet been arrested. Chicago, Oct. 9, 12:45 a. m. To-night isfthej&ost awful in the annals of the city. The fire, which commenced at 10 p. m, has already swept oyer a space at least three times as large as that of las! night, and is still rushing on with greater fury than .has marked any stage of its progress, the engines appoaring ahnostjoweriess. Tire 'Marshal Williams bas'just - Telegraphed to Milwaukee for all the steamers they can spare. The conflagration has already devastated at least twenty blocks, mostly composed of the smaller class of dwellings, inhabited by poor people. Xotless than 300 buildings have been entirely destroyed, and more than that number of families rendered homeless. The wind is blowing almost a gale from the south, and showers of sparks and brands are sweeping sweeping over the city, threatening Destruction on Everjr Hand. Since this report commenced twenty additional additional alarms have been struck, and the lower part f the courthouse caught from flying brands, but was extinguished by the watciman in the tower. No description can give an adequate idea of the terrible scene. The fire started in low wooden tene-meBtSiOnDeKowansteeet, tene-meBtSiOnDeKowansteeet, between Jefferson Jefferson and Clinton, and, as was the case last night, Spread Willi Terrible Rapidity. Before a single engine could .get on the ground onelialf f-the block was in flames and burning furiously. The entire department department were soon on hand and at work. For a'tlmeiit seemed possible that theyi would succeed lh confining it to four or five blocks: The wind, which was blowing freshly when th fire started, increased to a gale, -and suddenly suddenly the- flames seeaed -to spread'iri every direction, becoming beyond the control of flie Fire Department. Chicago, Oct. 9, 1.15 a. m. The fire is still raging, and with.increased fury. It has spread aknoswith The Velocity or the "Wind, and has now reached West Monroe street, a distance of more than a mile fron where It started. It covers a breadth of nearly half a mile, reaching from the river to Jefferson Jefferson street. The district already burned embraces an immense number of lumberyards, lumberyards, the freight depots of trie Chicago and St Louis, and the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railroads. The property already already destroyed counts up .K Sfnuy MilliOHS of Dollars, and, perhaps, the half is not told. The task of'anfesUngJCnow seemsr five-fold greater than ah'hour ago, and no ond dares to venture venture an opiniorrasto when or where it will stop. Brands 60m the fire were blown across the east side of the river, and set the wcod-'en'Duudltigs wcod-'en'Duudltigs on fire directly adjoining the Chicago asrhoi'ise. The flames spread in every direction, the adjoining buildings be lag all'of the tlnderbox kind. The prospect prospect is that jhe .gas-bouse will be destroyed and ' ' " " -" - . The City Wrapped In Darkness. ' A terrible panic is prevailing throughout ,th whole city. Almost everybody, men, rwomen and children, are in the streets.

Many1 thousand -dwellings and the-waterworks are destroyed.. Early this morning the wind commenced blowing a fearful gale from the southwest, with a sky of brass. No one can tell what the end will be. The only salvation for the remainder of the city is in the wind keeping in its present direction. direction. Fifty thousand people are homeless, and most of them n a destitute condition. The unburned streets for miles are lined with household fgoods'. - No one dare'think what a loss of life there may be, as the flames swept through the city with the rapidity of a prairie on fire, andmany must have perished. The Western Union Telegraph has succeeded succeeded in getting up a few wires from a hastily, improvised office in. the southern part of the city,- thus establishing .communication .communication in nearly all directions. Munificent offers of assistance a coming from every quarter. Jones. Getting: Hungry.

He. says at least seventy-five thousand, people are in the streets. Conflagration unabated. The Feeling in Cincinnati 833,000 Raised for the NuQering. A meeting of the Common Council was called at'l o'clock to take action for the relief relief of Chicago sufferers. At the Preacher's meetings in the Methodist Methodist Episcopal Churches this morning, resolutions resolutions of sympathy were adopted declaring that they would call on their congregations to co-operate with the city authorities in affording immediate relief. Cincinnati, Oct. 9. The great fire In Chicago monopolizes all attention; business is totaUy'suSpended.. Newspaper bulletins keep the people advised. Extras by morning morning papers are eagerly caught up. This great calamity moves every heart. The citizens' meting! called at the Chamber Chamber of Commerce was largely attended. Mayor Davis presided, Committees on transportation and.finahce were appointed. Subscriptions and cash payments were received received at once. The Chamber of Com; merce gave $5,000. Mauy leading firms gave $1,000 each. At 12 o'clock $25,000 had been subscribed. At J0:30 Mayor "Davis sent by special train on the' C. H. &D. road three steam fire engines and all the hose at the command of the city, together with men necessary to man them. The Hamilton and Dayton railroad sent notice that they had ample transportation for all supplies and' help necessary to be sent to .Chicago free. The.Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Lafayette road makes the same offer. The American Express Company Company also proposed to carry supplies free. In accordance "with this, tho Mayor sends a dispatch to the cities along the hno of the railroad to collect supplies to be taken free'. Blankets and clothing wilLbe collected and sent UMlay in large quantities, and also cooked food. A committee will leave for Chicago at five o'clock this evening. 870,000 Raised in St. Louis.

Some $70,000 were raised in the space of an hour, and the meeting is still in session.

The rain of fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomorrah can hardly be compared to the devastating reign of the fire-fiend in Chicago. More than one-half the population population are now rushing through the streets in vehicles which are obtained at enormous prices, on foot and in every other way with tb choice of household treasures in their .arms and on their backs in utter confusion, not knowing wintrier to go. Fearful Snffering Must follow and almost immediately. Full one hundred and fifty thousand people are at this moment homeless and houseless, not knowing where to lay their heads or get anything to satisfy the ravings of hunger. rie to the Rescue. New Yoiur, Oct. 9. Jay Gould, President President of the Erie Railroad, has addressed a communication to Mayor Hall, stating that he has received a telegram from the Mayor of Chicago concerning the fire, and that the Erie Kailroadhas a train at their depot, and will receive and to forward free on fast trains through to Chicago' all contributions which the citizens of New York may furnish to aid the sufferers. 4 A Harvey of the Waste at Noon. Chicago, Oct. 9 noon. The awful work of destruction goes on with relentless fury from Harrison street south, to Division Division street north, and from River to Lake, area four miles long, by one wide, flames have swept every thing before them. It is estimated at least one hundred thousand people are houseless and in a suffering condition. condition. The streets in districts still unburned unburned are lined for miles with such household goods as have been saved from destruction. Most generous offers of assistance in money, food, or any thing wanted, coming from every city and town accessible by telegraph. The Mayor has responded to several' offers, asking that cooked food be forwarded as soon as possible. Firemen are on their way here from Cincinnati, St. Louis, and other cities. Waterworks entirely destroyed. 'Fighting Fire with Powder. They are now blowing up buildings In the lineof fire In the attempt to arrest its progress. progress. The Fire Stayed In One Direction. Later It-is- now believed the spread of the fire southward has been stayed at Harrison street, but on the north side there is no diminution in its fury, and that entire division of the city is .evidently doqmed.to utter destruction, and there 'are grave" fears that the flames may spread to the west side of the north branch of lhe'river,and the inhabitants inhabitants of the streets nearest the river aro already moyjng to places, supposed to be of greater safety. HTbe Northwestern railroad is running trains on both its '-branches, which are crowded with fleeing citizens. The Waterworks Safe. It is. now positively asserted by some that the works are still intact', but thai the water has been shut off from the South and West Divisions on account of the quantity being used on the north side.' A reliable gentleman, gentleman, just arrived from.the .North'Division, brings the joyful intelligence that the waterworks waterworks are uninjured. God grant it may. prove trug. A Clean Sweep. It is impossible now to give even an approximately approximately correct statement of losses, but a faint idea may be formed when it is stafc ed that every bank in the city, except two small, saving' .establishments, one pn 22d street in the .south division, and one on Randolph in the west are destroyed1, all the wholesale stores and all the large retail establishments, establishments, the post office, . f ourt house, chamber of cornrnerce, every hotel, in the goijjffdivision except the 'Michigan .Avenue hotel -Bhich standing on the extreme southern1 .limit of the fire .escaped though badly scorched; every newspaper office, the Tribune building having finally succumbed,' every theatre, six of the -largest elevators, the immense depots of the.

Men who were millionaires yesterday morning afo nearly penniless tb-oay, ,. But sation here, and has had a dapressing effect upon all the departments of business. In ai( tne insurance ouicea the utmost anxiety prevails. It is impossible to tell as yet the number or extent of risks in the New York offices, and while many companies will loose heavily, perhaps none of them will be so seriously injured as to suspend. The Immediate result here is a timidity among those who have money to lend, based upon the expectation that the insurance companies companies will be compelled to call in all then-available then-available assets and realize on all securities that are readily convertable into cash. The 3Ioney.inaniacs of Wall Street. The scene in the Stock Exchange was one of the wildest ever witnessed there. Demoniac veils, such as were heard in the gold room on black Friday, in 1609, announced announced the struggles of desperate men to save at least a little from their wrecked fortunes. fortunes. Gestures of despair, faces pale with mortal fear and racked by anguish, such as one well may wish never to see a second time, greeted one on every side. The cene was fearfully interesting and exciting to a stranger. It would seem that that assem blage of well-dressed men before him were insane. Many a broker, who saw his fortune fortune rapidly slipping from his grasp without having power to stay it, was temporarily mad, and with good reason. Such a scene lias not been witnessed sjnee the famous break in Rock Island last summer. A meeting of the Chamber of Commerce has been called for Tuesday at noon, to afford an opportunity to the mercliants of this city to contribute relief to the sufferers by the fire. At the Produce Exchange there has been intense excitement all day and measures will be taken at once to send provisions, etc, to tho afflicted city. Arrangements Arrangements are making for a relief meeting of citizens. The call far the meeting will be issued to-night. Among the Masses. The excitement throughout the city in con sequence of the terrible news from Chicago was intense. Nothing like it lias ever been witnessed since the first days of the Franco-Prussian Franco-Prussian war. Every newspaper office had double or treble bulletin boards out with the freshest items regarding the spread of the flames and destruction of property. Crowds of readers, amounting to several hundred, pressed regularly around these boards and passed from one office to another reading the news. A dens? crpwd filled tho side-walk, and overflowed nearly to the middle of Broadway, Broadway, opposite the Western Union Telegraph office, in the windows and glass doors of which dispatches from the scene of disaster are posted as soon as received. In short, nothing but the fire exclusively is talked of throughout the city, and the people are filled with the deepest sympathy and sorrow for the fate, of the great Western city. In many localities' of the city the shock has bfietl such as to partially bring business to a stand still. In insurance offices on Broadway little was done during the day beyond conversing about the calamity and comparing notes as to the probable losses of the several companies companies .insuring in Clucago. Every m.praent visitors were arriving to see tha President or Secretaries, and to question them as to the losses of themselves or neighboring companies, but there were none of them that could even form a rough estimate of the insurance. The people are greatly exercised exercised over the appalling news. At the fire Underwriters the greatest apprehensions apprehensions are entertained for the solvency of some companies who have risked heavily in Chicago property, At a meeting called at the ChambeV of Commerce, to-morrow, to take, action in this emergency, there is no doubt but that the response will be of- the heartiest and most liberal character. Business men of every class are not only ready but eager to do thelr'duty towards the suffering people of Chicago, and it may be relied upon that the contribution from the Empire City will be a prompt and noble one. The meeting will'be a crowded one, and the utmost hn-; patience'ls'mahifestcd for the'speedy formation formation of 'channels' through which to convey the practical ' assistance and sympathy' of New Ybrki - The officers of the Great" Wester and Marys Church, Trinity, First Presbyterian, Second Presbyterian, St. Paul Swedenborgian, etc The Methodist cnurcn on uie comer ot wauasli avenue and Congress streets is saved.

South Division, Division, the fire "extended south as far as Polk street, sweeping everything before it. The distance burned over here is some three blocks wide and over half a mile in length, numbering about twenty blocks. The bufldings are generally of the cheaper character, embracing saloons, small shops, poor residences, etc. The district burned over on the west side, commences at Taylor street, running fromDekonerto Jefferson, ran thence four or five blicks north, and then, n;cvod diagonally diagonally toward the river, and'tinally the west ling was established on Clinton street, and reaching thence to tlio river.

The sight is truly pitiful and harrowing. Unless they receive immediate relief, many of them, from exposure exposure and starvation, will perish, of course.
