CUICAOOl To enable our reader more fully to comprehend the calamity which has overwhelmed we giye a general description of the city. Chicago lies along the wes'erul aUff of Lake Michigan, which has a gene ra course little west of north. The north and sonth branches of Chicago river, flowing respectively from the north and south, nearly parallel with the Lake Shore, uuita in nearly the heart of the city, and the" main river thus formed, Hows nearly due east Into the Lake. The city Is thus Dutui ally divided iuto three parts, the-Soutb Side," extending south of the mailt river, bety the South Branch I Hid 'rfflrlli Side," north of OUR FALL STOCK OF the main river and between the North BrSncb ndthe Lake; and the "West Side," lying west of the two branches of the river. The "South side" Included the richest and most beautiful part of the cily, ami the part which was best kuowu to occasional visitors.

Ilere were located the Court -House, Tost Office, hotels, bauks, newspaper offloos, law offices, libraries, and tlioe wonderful rows and blocks ol palace-like business ediBces which were the pride of Chicago and the HATS AND CAPS, wonder of strangers. In this part of the city, beginning at the malu rivet and proceediag south to the limits of the fire, the main streets rimniim East aud West are: Water, Lake, IS WOW COMPLETE. Randolph, Washington.

All this part of "the city appears to be destroyed. On the "North Mile most ol the stieeU already mentioned as running north and sou.b, continue their course for some miles northward, and are crossed from east to west by Kiuiie, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Ontario, Erie, Huron and Superior streets, Chicago avenue, and a long series of streets still northward. Here were multitude of dwellings, and many business homes also, mostly much Inferior to those of the South Side. The water work were on the lake hors at the foot of Chicago avenue. All this put of tho city also, to a distance far north of the paint to which we have enumerated the streets, Is, as it seems, In ashes.

On the "West Side," the main street already named as running east and wett through the "South Side," continue Indefinitely westward, aud are crossed from north to soulh by Beach (a short street), Canal, Clinton, JelTerson, Des l'lalnes and DEWENTER KREITZER, We are now prepared to make CONTRACTS FOR COAL, For future or present delivery at the lowest prloei DuQuoin, Vermillion, Bloomington, Pittsburg, Blossburg, and Anthracite, all Sizes.

arplS-U and the Browing disaentions among the Mormons it would be extinct In a dozen years." Thousand 01 morai, women who are not "mean UMI Ulu wuw politicians," do not know that, though we think it Is true. Nor do we believe, with the Timts. that "none other than such a mean pol itician but knows that the forcible separation of these extra wives from their Husbands ana supporters would be a most Infamous tyranny Thousands of good people do not know this, though It 1 the truth. And thousands who are not "mean politicians," are so do-voted lo the extirpation of thi Mormon abomination that they cry out for that at all hazards, forgetting how the innocent and helpless will suffer with the guilty. But after all it is probable that the present effort of tbe courts to punish polygamy will be confined to a few of the guilty leaders; and If so, say let them be punished aud their families provided for.

i IU 1 kj- The Democratic organ in Jersey county say that "the Kade are trying to get rid of Guant by advocating 'the one-term a thing they never thought of when Lincoln run thiugs to suit them." Tbe Democrat is mistaken. Tbe very same fussy Republican who are now makiDg use of thi "one term" dodge mad the same oDjecuon to tlie renorainatlon of Mr. Lincoln, and for the same reason. They could offer no other plausible reason why he should nt be renominated, and so they fell upon that. Mr.

(iiiKKl.lcv and a few others afllicted with chronic faull-fiudiug, headed the cry then, aud the same men head it now, though none of tliem lu all their lives were known to be In favor of the succestful candidate. It ha been the life long fate of Mr. O11EM.EY to have advocated the candidate who was beaten, and to have opposed the successful one. it Is a good thing to have U. i.

In the opposition, as bis side never wins. 1 I E7The Jersey county Dtmucral recom-meuds to Its friends the nominee for Cou-gressinau-at-Lrge, by saying that Mr. Hay bas been for year an acknowledged leader of the Deiurrracy In the northern portion of the State vJeY'rvices In the last constitutional convention ami present Legislature have glyen him a reputation second to none in the Slate." The Democrat ought to know that it candidate has no other place In tbe pres ent Legislature than that of a lobby member. Whether a that position he has earned "a reputation second to none In the State," we leave for those who know him belter tli.iu the Dimocrnt doc to say.

(From the OetreltFree Press, Oct 4 A man 25 years old, named Charles Tyrell, living in Springwells, came down on the steamer Ward yesterday afternoon from Algo-nac, having been hunting in that locality for the past two weeks, lit brought down with blm the skin of a fine black bear, and a pretty lively story goes with tbe relic.

Tyiell was stopping about four miles from Algonac, on tbe opposite side of the St. Clair river, boarding, or rather taking a meal now and then, with a farmer. Saturday last, late In tbe afternoon, he got trace of a black bear, running the animal into a swamp. It coming on dark, he concluded to wait til) morning before coming to closer quarters. When be reached this decision he had not seen the bear for about 15 minutes, having moved cautiously so as not to frighten the animal from the neighborhood.

Il as some distance in the swamp, and had lust made his wav to dryland when two bears 1 1: 1.. c. appeared upon ariuge 1101 nverous 111 um 00m. Somewhat excited, he leveled his riile and fired, and the next moment both liears were coming down upon him at full sjieed. I lie hunter saw that they meant business, each uttering tierce srowls.

and he dropiied his gun and dashed off at a two-forty gait. After running about 30 rods lie found that his revengefiU pursuers were going overtake him, and he caught hold of the limb of a small 011k tree, and swung his legs up just in time to save his hoots. The tree which Tyrell mounted was about a foot thick and lull or limns, Demg what fanners term a "scrub." After some difficulty he worked his way up about 15 feet, as high as tlie tree wouiu near mm, aim throUL'h the doom lie could discern the bears snuffing at the base of the tree. As lie expected, one of them was not long in attempting to secure a closer acquaintance. The animal got up about seven feet, and then the limits refused to let bim by.

Ho pawed, bit, and growled at a great rate, and In making a big eDort to push away trie limns, il 10 ine ground. Tyrell was about two miles rrom tno nouse, our, ne commenced shouting, hoping that some one might hear blm. Hit voice excited tue Dears, anu one of them was quickly up to the limbs again. This time he looked as if be would get clear up, aud the hunter struck a match and dropped It down on bruin's bead, frightening uim so that be went down the tree at a lively rate. The.

hunter had about a dozen matches with him, and every time th bears tarted to climb he would light one and let it fall, the trick never failing to stop their ascent. After a time they both seemed to go away, and the hunter carefully commenced to descend. He was just about to touch tbe mound when both the bears came charging at bim out of the darkness, and he had to go up again, one of his hoots being raked by claws before lie wat above tho limbs. Tbe animals made no further ellurts to climb the tree, but "toro around' for a full hour nt Its base, and hen their grow ls had ceased Tyrell dared not descend for fear that tliey had laid a snare for him. He passed tlie entire night astride of a limb, and lie says that ho would rather ride from Detroit to Buffalo on the walking-beam of a steainlioat than todo It again.

He had towhistlc.dcclaim, quote Nhakspeare, pinch his legs, pull his hair, and resort to other exs'dients to keep awake, and when morning dawned he was an A 1 specimen of a used up man. His as to still that ho could hardly get down, but once down a light met bis ga.o which at once limbered blm up. The bear fired at th evening previous was lying dead in plain sight, the blood on the ground and leaves showing that he had slowly bled lo dealb. The other was nowhere in sight, and after recovering his gnu and getting outside of square meal Ibe hun ter got help lo convey tlie near to ine nome. The hide was on exhibition at the Central depot for some time yesterday, and attracted a great deal of atteutiou.

For a eoiisnleralile time no hope was enter tallied ol the recovery of the body, when at last the (ram 1 re want was claimed by a certain la-asant of ravMte, who had discov ered the body of an ollleer ill uniform, too much decouinjsed, however, to Iw recognizable, but in whose pocket the Watch was found, with a portion of the chain still attached.
