There are various suggestions of rclierues by which Chicago can be i stored, and some of these are very-wild ues. For instance, it is urged that the national government shall advance a hundred millions of dollars and loan it out to rebuild Chicago. It is proposed, also, that the State of Illinois shall borrow several millions of dollars and lend it out to rebuild Chicago. Who would be entitled to receive this money the 6,000 capitalists or the 50,000" pau- pers? Air such propositions are impracticable. That is not the way to rebuild Chicago. It must be built by its own people, on their own credit, and with that self-reliant energy that had already erected one of the noblest cities of modern times. Chicago cannot be rebuilt by any gift concert arrangement. We have every clement of commercial and productive industry that we ever had. Our stores and ware- " houses have perished, but the great, broad expanse of country from which this city has grown, all remains and is as prolific as ever. We have still capacity to store five million bushels of grain. We have the lakes and railroads at our feet as usual. Nothing has been destroyed but the buildings in which the details of this trade were carried on. The insurance companies owe us the value of this property destroyed. It is no- legitimate function of the government to make good the losses of insurance companies. Their capital and their resources must meet the risks from which they have drawn their profits.. To their honor, let it be said, that they exhibit a purpose to pay their losses to the uttermost of their means. The idea that the State or National Government can loan public money to supply deficiencies in insurance, can have no other effect than to paralyze personal energy, and cause private capital to delay its proptr action in hope of escaping payment finally. There is one way in which the National Government may do a substantial benefit without stepping outside its legitimate functions. The government must h ive public offices here, a Custom House, a Post Office, rooms for courts and Marshal, for Internal Revenue officers, and Pension Agency; it must also have here i.-o or more bonded warehouses. TU m buildings are absolutely and immediately necessary. What Congress can do is to provide for the erection of these buildings, and they should be of the most capacious dimensions and of the very best class. The should occupy an entire block should bo free of all contact with anv other buildings, and should be made absolutely fire proof. All these buildings can be built in the most solid manner of the most enduring material for less than five millions of dollars. If Congress, npon meeting in December, will appropriate one or two millions of dollars to begin this work, and will order their construction, it will do more to restore confidence and stimulate private enterprise than any questionable or impracticable attempts to loan public money to back iid stockholders in insurance compa nies. This appropriation must of . 1 necessity be made at some time, oui its beneficial effects upon Chicago will be greatly increased if it should be done as early in the session as possible. For the moment we have thousands of homeless and destitute people. They want work. Each man wants to earn the bread that he and his family consume. Not one penny of any loan Congress or the State might make would reach these people. ' We have thousands of rich Tipon'-e who have been made poor, but we have tens of thousands of poor people who have been rendered destitute who have neither bread, nor clothing, nor shelter. The fact that Congress had voted $5,000,000 to erect" necessary buildings in Chicago, for its own use, would be the best tidings to the unemployed labor of this city. It would be duplicated five times over by private enterprise, and instead of a city of houseless destitute ptr, the community would become a hive of human industry, each man and . family looking to their own earnings for their own support. In the same manner the State of Illinois might, within the scope of its constitutional authority, 'devise some means whereby the people of this city and county may provide themselves with public buildings. We want a Court House, a - Hall of Ifecords, a County. Prison, and a ( i;y Hall. These buildings are indispensable, and must be built soon tupnns to begin igs e.v.i be found then anotlio, given to" ji j e euler'. g f,Chi cagoolutloug lhe!aslieaf thtTpast froniTLer garments, will put oa n ew 1 bWty,TMqnife hV &frerth,n&T win rapidly regain tnat power and wealth which have been so sudden ly and calamitously lost. WHAT THE BASKS WILL DO. We print elsewhere e rvsolu lions adopted "by 'the bankers of Chicago in regard to the course thev deem it judicious to pijrjitjJ t"dfri the best jiutrvsts of aUonceroe3i ' - . scarcely any question in conneu tion with the great calamity which has befallen us required more cool ness than to point out, in the. midst. of the prevailing confusion, the way to restore confidence and re-estab lish the business of the-city. The bankers 'composing iie"committee lio drafted" these resolutions and submitted them tath meeting yesterday are gentlemen whose well- known ability entitle, rtherc to "ihe confidence ot the public, and the course deemed judicious by ( them should meet with the hearty co-operation of the entire business community. , As was stated in our issue of Wednesday morning, every dollar of currency and bonds in the vaults of the banks is beli$vec to 'have been saved. This, together with the New York balances of the banks, leaves them an average amount of cash means equal to .'40 or to per cent of their deposits. If the bank- s chose to adopt so suicidal a course as to press their1 debtors '"for the payraenfpf. their loans, maiiy' of them could pay off their depositors in full within sixty days, . But this policy would wind up the "banks themselves, as the depositors can put them into bankruptcy a "easily as the banks can put their debtors there, o'such policy is thought of by either sidei' It i9 solely with the view of preserving all these : vast In terests that the majority of ilie bankers have ' denieJlt injudicious Jp pay out more than fifteen per cent on their deposits at once. Fifteen per cent, however, will give every depositor something: to use now, and the continuance of the business of the banks is the best possible guarantee that all the present liabilities to depositors will be cleared off as soon as the "bills receivable "held by the batiks which are worth fudy 75 per cent of their face can be collected. It is confidently believed that at least 50 per cent of all the insurance involved in the fire will be promptly paid. This insures the collection of at least 75 or 80 per cent of the loans of the banks. How soon another instalment can be paid by the banks on their de posits it is of course impossible to say. It is thought that some degree of uniformity of, action ii this spect will be obrerved, but some of the banks will probably pay 10, 20, or 30 per cent within the next month or two, while some will pay nearly all their deposits that are demanded within the next sixty or ninety daysy The most important element, how ever, in the re-establishment of . busi ness, will be the degree of !gcod sense shown by the public in si taining the banks. The bankers, generally, believe that if the busi ness community will give them their confidence, every dollar of present liabilities to depositors will not only be paid off, but a new business will be built up at the same time. In this matter the ountry banks can exercise a potent, influence for good or evil, according as they may act. "witbs discretion, or otherwise The main thing to be borne in mind is, that the banks of Chicago have means enough to pay everything if they are allowed time to realize on their bills receivable. As will be seen by the resolutions adopted by the savings banks, their action will be somewhat different from that of the commercial banks. They propose to pay at once all depositors whose balances do not exceed twenty dollars, and not less than twenty dollars to every depositor whose balance is more than that amount. The limit of twenty dollars is placed npon present payments solelyforthe purpose of preventing a run of depositors who do not stop to consider the demoralizing effect such an event would have. The savings banks are sound; they can pay every dollar, and will do so as soon as confidence is firmly re-established. BUSINESS REVIVAL. Already the lumber bis been hauled in many instances to the sites of the recent destruction is the South Di vision for the purpose of construotin frame1 stores and warehouses. Within a very short time our wholesale merchants will be prepared to fill orders Ltrge warehouses, kept for - r af and without the limbs of, the fire, it'it filled with goods. The public warehouses alone have several millions oi dollars' worth of goods, which will be with itrawn for sale as soon as there can he tem-onrory stores erected. Many lines ot business will be immediately resumed merchants using their privtte dwelling for that purpose. Orders will be received and the goods furnished without delay from the EaU Already most of our firms have memtters in the Atlantic cities selecting stocks of goods, and forwarding them to Chicago. The cheering prospect in the matter of insurance bus bad a most encouraging t n. ci i ue iat & nave an amount iu. which, with the large percentage of insur er or later. If the these public bi.'U. ance, will make financial matters far more easy than was anticipated. The country cannot afford to let Chicago pcrishani a. no&lcnWtaTnallflg'everrxeta'Jto pay our sufferers what is due to'hcmjlnit they lnay pay-wtat thejp jowe, andca4ry on theirysiness almost, viuroui icicJTupilon EXTORTION'. Every attempt at extortion because of the straits to which business has been re ilueed should be frowned down by the public, and submission to it utterly refused, even at much sacrifice." Wc have beard of few attempts at such extortions. On the contrary, holders of provision, lumber, fur niture, etc. such commodities as tire most in demand at his (5r1si$ nre-t fqaiorally atT vertisini " No advance ia price." This is a wbolesorue indication, testifying to the spirit .ot iteVoti, t( tbajjit's welfare which has always been characteristic ef Chicago merchants. Let it become tlie motto of the hour. It will not only help us iKitter through bard times by keeping expenses down, but will keep in some productive industry many who might other wise be tempted into trading upon the misfortunes of their fcllo w-citizens. Among the commodities most in de mand just now is news particularly Intel ligencc of the fire audits sequences. It is this insatiable demand, and the narrow ness of the facilities now at band for making newspapers, which has induced people to pay 'from' fivis to ten prices for The Tribune, and even for tha smaller sheets which are offered on the streets The public should understand, however, that .this is entirely a speculation of the newsboys, and not of the publishers. The Thi ucne has been and will continue to be furnished at the regular price by the single number, as fast as printed, to all who can succeed in gaining a position at the doors of our office of publication. "We hope, moreover to commence serving thepapor to subscribers at their residences to-day. PROMPT KI.VIXXESS. Among; thelJaauy kiud and 'generous offers of assistance which have come to us from our brethren of the press in all Darts of the country, we wish to make Attire acknowledgment to our namesake. Tub Tribune, of New York. The fore man or their composition room, Mr. Thomas Rooker, telegraphed, on the 10th, that they had on hand various fonts of type ready for use which would be forwarded im mediately if needed. The despatch, owing to the Immense pressure upon the. tele graph wires, did not reach us till the 12tb when we" had already provided ourselve9 with all that was immediately necessary to meet the emergency! but we are none the less grateful for the prompt and generous offerwf Mf New Yor frfendi' a FOREIGN LOANSk i"" Private despatches Jcdm responsible pej sqnaji LtonflonJuid- Liverpool -Indicate unimpaired confidence by the 'capitalists of those cities in the futura ot Chicago, and it is suggested that it would be well if some of thoseJargelyrinterested in the Jebuilding of the destroyed districts should select some of their number, well known, to pro ceed to the Eastern cities and to England and prreent, personally, the'; condition of aflalrs iThe confluence mvhieag which is generally felt can be greatly strength ened by the detailed information and facts which can best be presented by' responsi ble men, such as Mr. W.

PROPOSED IMPROVEMENTS "We have been informed upon good authority that arrangements are maturing for the investment of a large amount of East era capital In the erection' of hoteTs" and stores in; the neighborhood or'.llie new business quarter west of the burnt district Our commerce should hot be permitted to leave u, and every effort should be made to meet its requirements. Mr. Philo Carpenter is obtaining plans and estimates for the conversion of his ele gant new block of marble buildings on West Washington street, between May and Ann streets, into a first-class hotel. The front on Washington street is 250 feet, and the block is built of Athens stone. It will make one of the finest hotels in the North west ' JUST AND GENEROUS. That a much larger amount of the in surance on the late losses in this city will be paid than was at first thought even possible, u now certain. Among the most eratifvicz positive assurances that kave reached us is that from the North British and Mercantile Insurance Company of London. This company has tele-eraphed to their agents here, Messrs. S. M. Moore & Co., to draw upon them at sight for $5,0o0 for the sufferers by the fi e, and to proceed at once to adjust ad risks in their office which will be paid in full, dollar for dollar. These losses amount to not less than two and a hall millions. and the North iSritish and Mercantile can pay them without disturbing, in the least, their American securities.

Na one had ever expected so sevore a conflagration a the one just experienced, and a few years ago when LilTs brewery caught or, and , the old shingle roof of ton water ' works was blazing in thirteen places, Cregier was able to pnt h out wiui bis steam puuip. su lue Doara, in rooung tne new building, bad it constructed entirely of wood. It was roofed with pine, contained number of ossces or 14X1 stun ana purnns. inere was also a lath and plaster ceiling in part. This great mass of woodwotk comprising the Immense snan of tbo roof was thoroughly seasosod by the heat of engine was ready lor the aaaws.

It was not very king before there was a perfect caloriduct. aad tba whole snnerstnetare ws a mass of flames. The engineer and firemen held out as long as tney could, but, at nair-pat 3, were lorcea on, most 01 mem taking reiuge oemna tne water-tower. They shut off steam lust before the su-am pipe were broken, bit after many of the rope were bnrned, opened tha safety valve, aadf left things in as good shape as possible. They were utterly unable to put out the fire, not having ail the hose they needed, and even had ther bean successful then, they must have failed afier the brewery took fire, for though tha Water Works were so mnch farther north and east, they were in flames before the buildings near them were touched. There was no' king inflammable about the tower. and all the injury it suffered was the burning out ot a couple of windows witbaroua-ern frontage. od it is not impossible that they were set oa fire by thieves, who were prowling around the neighborhood. One gentleman living near by packed a trunk witn valuable clothing, aa J dragged it over to the office In the tower, but when he went over after a time to look for it. It had been broken open and rifled. RinsrtnTT who t. emolovod at the work, giaa- bed, when be left, a large bundle of paper, eoa- sisting of Cregier's calculations for the new engine. rushed over tpihe,mvr ihiisa, and retui ussl loiawwhaX. ols ho- oouM.. .Wba begot buck into the oiiee be san as mail alnut gelling 00 1 of tbwwintTtiw with tlitfm evidently a thief. .

As for the papers, the Kind v.Wl-d thew aroncd. and they are acattered all over Ihe lot. Just as esrly as possible Cregier. who was very thoroughly cleaned onti got togetlwr his men, and set to work to examioc the condition of the engines and make the necessary repairs. They are "T? V w?Tk making a lempurary wautira Soarirtg wbicn wul enable them to get at the engines, the fowndaiioas of whirh are somewhat iuhired, how badly it is as yet impossible to tell. The larcsi double engine is In the best condition ef the three. None of the essential Parts that have yet been got-tea at appear to be injured, and there ts no appparent injury th,t cannot ba repaired ia this city. The single engines are worse on ; but. from tbeir peculiar positiui at the time mben ibey were stopped, it is impowiltie to look after toe machinery very closely. On Saturday the steam pipe will probably be in order aad by Monday, if I lie large engine ia in order, steam will be turned on ; hat it is impossible to det by the eye a slight mechanical Inaccuracy hirh wonid rnin evo-rytfelng. The condii ion of the cvl-Inders is not yet known, and, when they are gotten at, they may be found to resemble boar-glasses. The old horizontal engine ia the yard, which was sed some years ago, never amounted to ninrh. and would take longer to repair tbsn any on? of the other engines. Cregler has telegraphed to Whitman, at St. Lonia, for supplementary Gould ensine which the water-v. 04 na there posses, and that may be exported here at any moment. When it does come, they will make a connection with the main at Rush street and the river, and pump the water thence, it being good enough at present for all ordinary purpose. They are still pnmpin; from the river into the hydrants near Adama street, so that there is still some near the river. The same thing has been done for the South Side, and the flow bom Wahl's artesian well ha been turned into the mains near by. It would not be diftlt-nlt to lay pipe ait turn the water from the artesian wells at Chicago and Western avenues into the mains on Lske street. It is Cregiers intense desire to get the water to the West Division so soon as possible. and if any one ol the engines will work, there will he no trouble about it, for the West Side is generally supplied by the Chicago avenue main, which is not tapped to supply the houses oa that street. Had it been, it would have been a work ef lime and difficulty to cut off the service pijies; but as it is, all that will hare ia be done will be to cut off ihe submain which ran down State street. In view, however, of the doubt concerning the enertnes. it will not de to be too sanguine. They will at once proceed to pnt a tcmpsrary nouden roof over the building, tearing sufficient room 10 pnt aa iron roof in nndernaalh when lime permits.
