TO LOCAL COMMITTEES. Trains are arriving almost every hour laden with provisions, under charge of committees from neighboring cities. There should be sub-committees of our local relief organization tofjliect them, and direct the tlis-position of their supplies. Otherwise' they will go roaming around in Vain in search of tlie proper authorities, as the Cincinnati committee did last night. We understand that all the railroads take passengers free out of the city to the neighboring towsis and country. Tlie more who avail them selves of this opportunity to get away for a period the better. Tlie work of feedinf and otherwise caring for. the destitute multitude is necessarily immense, and any reliet tiiat may come by a removal of any portion to other localities, where they can re ceive attention, will be very gre Tlie scarcity of work, as well of provisions, make it very desirable that the unemployed should seek work elsewhere, and they should be urged to avail themselves of the liberality of the railroad companies.

In tbe midst of ail the blank wonder with which the people of Chicago noted aa they are for energy ana nopeiumess were rorcea tostsnd ana gas ei the havoc which the element were making with their property in tbe midst, oven, of Ike sorrow that the calamity was' bringing to every hearth, one might often hear this apparently frivolous utterance: Well, Chicago fas si way been beat on Dealing tne worm in everything sue naa none again now. She bas had the most destructive tire ever known." This is unquestionably true. The fire which devastated Chicago- on Saturday, Sunday, Xondav, and Tuesday Is unquestionably tne greatest fire' and the greatest disaster, so far a property is concerned, that known to history. The principal conflagration which have happened in America, after that of New York (noted below), are those of Charleston, S. in 1838, which destroyed 1,158 buildings, and extended over 145 acres; those ot Ouebec, in May and Jane, 1845, which, together, destroyed i.900 building and many live; that of Charleston, 8 in 1S5, which laid nearly the whole city in ruins; and that of Portland, In the following year, which almost totally destroyed tbat beautiful city- The damage In thai case amounted, scarcely more than one-tenth ot that which Chicago ha now suffered. The great London lire, which we often hear referred to as the typo of destructive conflagrations, raeed four days and nights (viz, from Sept. 4 to 7, lrjbfi), burnt over 436 acres and destroyed live-sixths or all the city within walls. But tbe Loodoa of that day was a town ol only' 400,000 Inhabitants, and having been already devastated hy the terrible plague of lbu5, bad doubtles been abandoned by manv or Us wealthy value of buildings, moreover, in those days was exceedingly small when compared to onr times. About seventy-live year ago- the principal portion of was. destroyed by fir snd large number of it people rained. Compared to the great fire of New lork, in 1835. tt waa larger in extent, though probably not destroying so niucii property. Other historical fire ar those of Moscow, destroyed by military order; of Canton, China, about thirty year ago, when more than a mile square of tbe most densely populated portion of the city waa destroyed, and ot Yeddo recently, about which Utile is known. The great fire of New occurred on the 16th of December, 18.15. and destroyed 678 tores, and many other buildings. In the best built quarter of the city, but the total amount of damage was stftiuiated at against th (some sat it higher! which the devouring element haa snatched away from na in Chicago. Hut London waa rebuilt in four years, and New York, though also scourged terribly by cholera in 133 and Ie34. and visited in 1837 by th financial crash of tbat year, increased her population more man ou per cent aunng me aecaaeot ltsu-tu. bo Chicago, aided by the sympathy and already tendered assistance of her friends in other part of the country, joined to the indomitable and elastic energy of her own people, will be bailded again, solemnly yet determinedly, npoa the still smoldering ashes of her late glory, and become known aa the Phoenix City an appellation to which her somewhat obsolete on of Garden City will readily give place.

Ia the midst of a calamity without parallel in the world's history, looking upon the ashes of thirty years' accumulations, the people $this once beautiful city have resolved that CHICAGO SHALL RISE AGAIN With woe' on every hand, with death many strange places, with two or three hundred millions of our hard-earned property swept away in a few hours, the hearts of our men and women are still brave, and they look into the future with undaunted hearts. As there has never been such a ca. Iamity, so has there never been such cheerful fortitude in the face of deso- latiotuand ruin. Thanks to die blessed charity of tlie good people of tlie United States, we shall not suffer from hunger or nakedness in this trying time. Hundreds of train-loads of provisions are coming forward, to us with all speed from every quarter, from Maine to Omaha. Some have already arrived more will us before these words are printed. Three-fourths of our inhabited area is still saved. The water supply will be speedily renewed. Steam fire engines from a dozen neighboring cities have already ar rived, and more are on their way. It seems impossible that any further pro gress should he made by the f.ames, or that any new fire should break out that would not be instantly extin guished. Already contracts havc been made for rebuilding some of tlie burned blocks, and the clearing -away of the debris' will begin to-day, if the heat is so far subdued that the charred material can be handled. Field, Leiter and John V. Farwell Co. will recommence business to-da-. The money and securities in all the banks are safe. The railroads, are working with all their energies to brinir us out of our affliction. The three hundred millions of capital invested in these roads is bound to sec us through. They have been built with special reference to a great commercial mart of this place, and they cannot fail to sustain us. Chicago MUST RISE AGAIN. We do not belittle tlie calamity that has befallen us. The world has probably never seen the like of it certainly not since Moscow burned. But the forces of nature, no less than the forces of reason require that tlie exchanges of a great region should be conducted here. Ten, twenty years may be required to reconstruct our fair city, but the capital to rebuild it fire-proof will be forthcoming. The losses we have suffered must be borne; but the place, the time, and the men are here, to" commence at the bottom and work up again; not at the YxAkta neither, for we have, credit in every land, and the? experience of one upbuilding of Chicago to help us. Let us all cheer up, save what is yet left, and we shall come out right. The Christian world is coming to otir relief. The worst is already over. In a few days more all the" dargers will be past, and we can resume the bat tle of life with Christian faith and Western grit. Let us all cheer up CONDITION OF THE BANKS One ot the points of ereatest inter est is to know the condition of the banks. On this point ft is well un derstood that on Saturday nieht the twenty leading banks of the city held an average amount ot cash means, viz currency, bonds, and New York exchange, equal to 35-per cent of their ''aggregate deposits. We believe, after a careful examination of the bank vaults, that nearly every dol" larof this will be saved. Three of tlie National Bank vaults v. opeiL- ed yesterday, and everything found The most imrxrtant rxInt. 4 A 7 however, is the "bills A earful analysis of this item gives a more cheerful aspect to affairs than might be expected. Of tlie aggre gate loans, nearly two-thirds "were made to lumber, gram, and provision dealers. The provision and lumber dealers huve lost comparatively little and as jt the grain dealers the entire loss of grain wHl not exceed 000. 1 ins loss would tall mainly on about six leading "grain The ereatest lots in the bills receiv able of the hanks will be on mercantile paper. If this merca tile paper is worth even 20 cents on the dollar, there is reason to hope that the banks will ulbmately timl that their" MLs receivable" arc worth, I an average. 6o cents on tie dollar, A ooi-l-ianss. conderablvmore. -It 1 7 will uke tirre to make thi available, we belieie that some a uie partus a 1 1 wAl ultimately pay the whole of their Thi must, oleonrse, have a vaw4M V.mcmaS Oil.
