YESTERDAY. , - Owing to the fact that the North Division was accessible onlv across Kiuzie and Division street bridge aiid through the dark LaSalle street tnu- nel, passage through which was forbidden to teams the people wh- ye:erday visited that quarter of the city were chiefly those who hntrrorniprlj liTcd here, and were limiting fur shreds and scraps of property, or were trying ta find the places where they bad once lived and the property they had once -owned. The great rash of visitors ou root and in carriages -was across Randoih. Lnke, end Madison afreet bridges into tha S orrth Division. People from the tt'wr Side, from lower down on the Soul b Division, and strangers who bad just reached (he city, all turned in that direction, and wandered from point - to point, often puzslrd In their whnreahouts, and seeking in vaiu for old and miliar landmark. The prin-7 cipal business iu the Sooth Division yesterday was f thC DIGGING OUT OF SAFES i from the smoking- hnildhigs iu which they were buried. , Several rjerj-oris -warti smart en.rnrh to i. make that a hosine-s, aud iher succeeded iu getting all the woik they wauled.

Many of the safe csmc up iu excellent condition, while others wero ' the most deplorable wreck. One of Herring's lay on llivcr street near Rush street bridge, the Interior wcudwork gono, and all the pnpers charreil. The Harris cafe of Declfcvbacher who is m the tobacco, business nn Water street, was also found to he worthless. It contained papers valued at about $ 10,000.. others were taken, out which bad anpar. ently passed anharod through the fiery trial.

On crossing tite rherat dii-on street there is TacaaneyoB the worth side of the street, and neth-la else, and wirfh few nnticeable exceptions tber: remain but Insignificant and one-story relics of once flr-t cla.1 buildings. Law's coal yard, on the south ride of the street, is on fire, and even where the flames have not broken oat, the white smoke is pouring out at k fearful rate, foroe of It may, however, be saved, by the liberal aud constant use of star. Beyond there, going east, there is practically nothing nntil the relics or hi: Otis Block ara reached at the corner of LaSalle nd MadUon.

Turning cast into WAsniNOTON STUELTT, the way is encumbered with the limestone blocks which once formed part or Field, L?i:erA Co.'s store, and which were thrown there when the building was blown u,. ilixjd up with brick, telegraph wire, and other debris, it makes a mass of rubbish which oaght (b have iniieded the progress of the flimes, but did not do co. Down in the basement, piles of dry goods are still burning and emitting an unpleasant stench. Ou the opposite side of Washington, the photographers' places r?n.! the other si ores have ranithed. while DRAKE 3 BLOCK is decidedly more of a ruin than it was a vear ago The question of die removal of the SECOND PRESBYTERIAN congregation has been eternally settled. The hard limestone walls of the church resided verr well notwithstanding the slight amount of bitumen in them. The southern tower remains, aud the walls are all upon a level with a point jnst above ih ! top of the great front window. The experience or this fire has dmu rather nnravorablc to the softer.

They are filled with iron twisted, dtorted, and bent out or II shape, while across the street the imincme Iron rafters and beams have been dealt w ith in Uie most extraordinary fashioa. Iu many of these stores. and. iuileed, g,moraU in the hirje whoresarc ware houses, the fires were still burning, and, t courar, no attempt was made to put Ihcns oat. The side walks of " - ' ' TIIE UNION DEI-OT, thick and strong, ar still stinding, but (he offices In the rear have caved in except at the north east corner, where one tall pinnacle remains. The Imilding occupied by tlus Chicago, Burlington Quiney and Mirblgan Central Roads has been gutted, but the Walls arc still partially staadinx. The Michigan Central freight depot has also been cleaned out, though the walls are up to lh spring of the roof. Quito an amount of sugar was lost here. Just south of this depot half a doxen car were burned, the tracks yet remaining on the track. Near by was a car which had just rnn np from Tolono on Ihe Illi-Illihois Central Road filled with provision!, gener ally bread and cheese, some of which were Issued on the spot to hungry men who happened to be near by.

Another engine was near the Central Elevator, playing upon an immense hill of wheat, which was in ELEVATOR A, and which was bursting out in little pnfs of smoka all over its surface, it cannot do very ensny extinguished, and all that is to be expected u that It will gradually moulder away. THE MARINE HOSPITAL, anoki and substantial building, is in very good order, comparatively. Of caursc the inner walla and tho roof arc gone, but the outside walls have sta4itvery well. It i not possible to ascerlatu as yet the entire amount of uirp;Nu lost along th river and the branches.

Eight or ninescboonria and brigs were also caught near tho mouth of the river, and bnr.i-rd to the water's edge.

The real headquarters or the oider-preferving force or the city is now st No. 5ti) Wabash avenue. where Geueiai Phil Sheridan has established his headquarters, in the house formerly occupied by :he Piaeaix Club. Here the head of the city has planted a piue labia and outertuiucd his numerous visitors. The force at the General's cuniinand, in addition to thu city regular aud special police, consists of seven Companies of regulars and fix of volunteers. The former are from Omaha and other wesrn p lints, aud arc all camped upon the site of the Ball Park, on Michigan avenue. To them, a.s tho most trustworthy and vigilant force at hand, lias been en trusted the caru of the South Side burnt district, reaching from Harrisiai street to the main river. In Ibis space is al present the wealth and treasure of Ihecity yet iu safes, aud in must cases buried lit Ihe ruins. The numbers of TiliKVES now known to be in the city. :uid the presumption that they will make the safes their ohji-ctivc point render this disposition of the troops the most prndent one oible. The orders to the sentinels last night were of the strictest possible kind, and it will be wonderful indeed if the luilianly element shall triumph. TIIE MTL'.TJA' are from lllooii.iiiton.
