CBICAOO, October Xood. The who business portion of the city ia In ashsa, from Harrison street north to csgoavenae, and cut of the river to Lake avenue, three Bailee in length, and from one mile to one mile end a half in width. Every hotel, bank, express office, telegraph office, theatre and newspaper office, with ail trie wuoiesaie nooses in the cut, are totally destroyed. Many thousand dwellings and the water works are alio barned. Early this morning the wind was blowing a perfect gale from the southwest, with a sky of brass.

No oae can as yet tell what the end will be. The only salvation for the remainder of the city is in the wind keeping its present direction. The Western Uatoa-Telegraph has succeeded la getting up a few wires from the hastily improved office in the southern part At the city, establishing communication In nearly all quarters. Munificent offers of assistance are coming from every quarter. Thousands of people are homeless, and most of then in a destitute condition.

The unbare ed streets are for miles lined with household goods. No one dare to even think what the loss of life may be. The flames swept through the city with the rapidity of a prairie hre. Many mast have perished Chicago, October 9. To Hon.

William Orton, New lork: We are trying to get established a supply department, but as the fire is now coming up this way on Wabash avenne, we will probably be driven out of here before night. The water-works are burned. Every baukics house and railroad depot in the city has been burned. Signed J. J.

U. Palmer, New York: One third of the city is ia rui ns. All the banks, insurance offices, warehouses and elevators are destroyed, ally tea tcoasaod build-lnsrs were burned. The fire isstill rairiDir Chicago. October The awful work of destruction goes on with relentless fury from Harrison street south to Division street nortb, and from the river to the lake.

Jn an area of four miles long by on wide, the names have swept everything before them. It ia estimated that at least one hundred thousand people are houseless and in a suffering condition. The streets in districts still unnamed are lined for miles with such household goods as have been eared from destruction. Host generous oilers of assistance in money, are coming from every city and town possible by telegraph. The Mayor has responded to several offers, asking that eooked food be forwarded as soon as possible.

Firemen are on their way here from Cincinnati, Hi. Louis and other cities. The water works are entirely destroyed. They are now blowing up buildings on the line of the fire to attempt to arrest the progress of the flames. bow believed that the spreading of the lira southward has been stayed at Harrison street, but on the north side there la bo diminution of its fury, and that entire division of ths city is evidently doomed to utter destruction, and tknre an grava fears that the (lanes may spread to the west side of the north branch of the river, and the inhabitants OS the streets nearest the river are already moving to places of supposed greater safety.

The Western Union Telegraph have aow six wires working east and south aad running into a temporary office on the corner of Htaie and Hiiteenth street. The Northwestern Railroad is running trains on both its branches, which are crowded with fleeing eitixena. It ia now positively ssserted by some that the water works are still intact, but that the water has been shut off from the south and west divisions on account of the quantity being used on the north side. Reliable gentlemen, just arrived from the north division bring the joyful intel-ligewee that the water works are uninjured. Uod grant it may prove true It ia) Impossible now to give even aa approximately correct statement of the losses, bat a faint idea may be formed when it ia stated that every bank in the city, except two email savings institutions, one ob Twenty-fifth street, ia the south division, and one on Randolph street, ia the west division, are destroyed.

All the wholesale stores aad all the large retail establishments, the PostorHce, court house, Chamber of Commerce, every hotel on the south division (except tHe Michigan A ve-aus Hotel, which stands on the eJ(jeeme southern limit of the tire, escaped, though badly scorched), every newspaper office, (the Tribfint building, supposed to be fire proof, having finally succumbed), every theatre, six of the larireat elevators, the immense depots of the Michigan Souther and Illinois Central Railroad, both passenger and freight depots of the latter, aad more than a score of churches, and much of the shipping In the river! ara burned.

Extras issued by the morning papers are eagerly caught up. The great calamity moves every heart. The citizftta' meeting called at the Chamber of Commerce is largely attended; Mayor Davis preeide. Committees on Finance and Transportation were sp. pointed.

Subscriptions and cash payments were at onoe received. The Chamber of Commerce gave five thousand dollars. Many leading firms gave one thousand each. At i o'clock twenty-five thousand dollars had been subscribed. At half past ten o'clock Mayor iavi sent by special train on the Hamilton and Dayton Rail toad three steam fire engines and all the hose at tbe command of the city, together with all the men neceseary to man them.

The Hamilton and Dayton Hailrosdsent notice that they bad ample transportation fnr all supplies and help necessary to be sent to Chicago, free. The Indianapolis. Cincinnati and Lafayette Itoad makes the same offer. Thb American Express Com pany also proposes to carry supplies free. In accordance with these offers the Mayor sends a dispatch to the cities along the Hoe of the railroads to collect sup plie to be taken free.

Blankets and clothing will be collected and sent to-day in large quantities; also cooked food. The committee will leave for Chicago at five o'clock in the evening. The streets In front of the newspaper offices are thronged with people eager to obtain the last news of the frightful calamity, and the only topic of conversation ia the terrible ditties of the people and fearful destruction of property. letter. A dispatch has just been received from Chicago, asking for fire en-sines and men.

They will be sent at once. The dispatch also says the fire is still rag-iug. At a meeting of both Boards of the Common Council, held atone was res olved by a unanimous vote to appropriate ooe hundred thousand dollars lor the relief of Chicago, despite the legal disability to make such an appropriation, but pledging themselves Individual ly to make the charity legal. A committee was appointed, and the action of the Mayor eendiog hre engines and police was endorsed. Business is partially suspended.

Nothing was done on 'Change, owing to the excitement about Chicago. nklevood. October 9, 10 a. m. The fire is still raging, and a southeaster ly wind is blowing.

The Joss, so far, is estimated at fifiy millions of dollars. The water work's are destroyed. A dispatch from St. Louis says. We are telegraphing to all the cities for food and clothes.

Our people are starving. H. D. E. Hotve, Agent O.

and S. Telegraph Co. St. Lot is, October 9. Mayor Brown has a dispatch from Chicago askicg for food for the suffering people of that city.

He has called a mass meeting of citizens at the Merchants' Exchange at twelve o'clock, which will be very largely attended. The sympathy here is universal, all classes expressing the deepest feelings of sorrow for the suffering, aud a coble aud generous response will be made to the appeals for aid. Mayor Brown has a special train stand tag on the Chicago and Alton track, ready to start at a moment's notice to take the fire engines, and anything else that may be required, for the relief of the suffering or the aid of the distressed. Later. The mass meeting at tbe Mer chants' Exchange at noon was the largest one ever held there.

People of all classes and conditions poured in to express sym pathy or contribute aid. Some seventy thousand dollars were raised in the space of one hour, and the meeting ia still in session. Commissioners will be appointed to canvass the city for money, food and and arrangements have already been made fur the reception of such articles at hotels and other points, at which they will be picked up by transfer companies' wagons and taken to depots of railroads leading to Chicago. It as al read gon a broad al most throughout the cuv that hungry women and children in Chicago want food. By night there will be, it is thought, tons of cooked provisions ready for transportation to the suffering people of Chi cago.

Washington, October 9. The fire at Chicago creates intense excitement throughout tbe city, especial ly among gentlemen from that locality, la addition to the press telegrams, Vien. Myers, of the Signal Service, has been receiving dispatches from time to time regarding the conflagration. On reading them this morning, Presi dent requested Secretary Belknap to telegraph Gen. Sheridan, saying it was the President's wish that Hen.

Sheridan issue provisions and clothing to the sufferers from the supplies he has at his disposal, and if these prove insutflcieat, to call on the military authorities at St. louis for the same purpose.

It is the all-engrossing subject, and depresses business of all kinds. Wheeling, October 9 The intelligence of the great fire in Chicago create iotense excitement. The Mayor of the city of Wheeling, in view of the great diaaster, has called a special meeting of the City Council for this evening to take action in the premises. CiNciXNATi. October 9.

To all cities and towns along the iiues of railroads leading to Chicago, Greeting At an immense mass meeting held at the Chamber of Commerce in Cincinnati, large donations have been made to relieve the suffering citizens of Chicago. Donations of all kinds will be transported free from all points. Cooked provisions aad bed cloth ing are mostly needed at prt-seot. Signed S. Davis, Mayer and Chairman of Finance Com mittee.

Kn.lwooi, 10 miles from Chicago. October 11a. m. The work of devastation continues. More than one-half of the city ia -already destroyed, and the flames continue their ravages almost unopposed.

At about one o'clock this morning the fire crossed the river at the Adams street bridge, it soon destroyed the gas works, and then spread itself in every direction, and at this hour almost every building fiom Harrison sir net north to tu Ciiicairo river is destroyed, in-, eluding all insurance offices, banks, hotels, telegraph the, newspaper eatab lishinents with the single exception of I the Tribune office, which is fire the court house, Sherman House, Tremont House, Palmer House, cew Pacific Hotel, 1 new Bigelow House in fact avery hotel and everything else ia ewept clean. I his district embraces an the neavy business houses in the city. The rag ing fire and brimstone in Sodom and (Jomorrah can hardly be com pared to the devastating reign of the lire fiend in Chicaio. More than one half of the population is now rushing through the streets in vehicles, which are obtained at enormous prices, on foot, and every other way, with the cnoicesi household treasures in their anna and on their backs, in utter confusion, sot knowing whither to go. Fearfu! suffering must follow, aud almost immediately.

Fully one hundred and fifty thousand peo ple are at this moment fcocneleaa and houseless, not knowing where to lay their heads or get anything to their cravings of hunger. New Yokk, October 9 Jay Gould, President of the Erie Vailroad. has ad dressed a communication to Mayor Hall, stating that he has received a telegram from the Mavor of Chicago coanernJjsff tbe fire, that tbe Erie Railroad has train at their depot, aad will receive and forward free, on fat trains through Chicago, all contributions which the clti- zens of New ork may lurnisn to saa toe sufferers. Louinviik, October 9. The news of the awful calamity which has befallen Chicago baa excited the greatest interest and commisseration in this city.

The Mayor has issued a proclamation referring to the disaster, savinir the stroke is sack an extraordinary and deep one that every instinct of humanity urges ns to rise up at once and proffer our sympathy and assistance to our afflicted fellow countrymen in that city. 1 therefore invite business men and all other citizens wbo are moved with sympathy by tbe deplorable affairs In Chicago to assemble at the Court House to-night, at half-past seven o'clock, 9th to devise ways and means for speedily forwarding contributions and assistance, and express the feel VOL. LXXX VII. number, thougU leaned from coo fi De ment, were oo bewildered aim cuu-fused by the iea of tire which surrounded them, that they rushed to aud fro, uttering cries of fritfhi aad pain until scorched and killed. Aaj attempt at a dt-acription of the scenes of this appalling calamity would be idle.

The aim pie fact that the once great city of Chicopo is destroyed, that hundreds of millions of hvr capital have a it-heJ, and that nearly one-third of her inhabitants are homeless and dependant, are enough. Any attempt to embellish would be but a mockery. As this awful day draws to a close thousands of aoxious eyea watch the dense clouds of smoke which still roll over the burnt district, with the dread that a sudden change of the wind may turn the rUmes upon that portion of the city yet spared. There seems, however, little cause for ths such apprehensions, aod reinforcemeots of firemen from other cities are constantly arriving. Col.

J.J, 8. Wilson, superintendent of toleffrapb, in receipt of dispatches from the leading cities, announcing that aid la being provided for the suftorers Col. I'lamry, of St. t-outs, telegraphs that 170.000 has been subscribed by merchants of Cincinnati and promises of two hundred thousand, aad Cleveland ia proportionately generous. All this and a good dl more will be needed to relieve the immediate pressing wants, and every thing is being done by Ueneral SUger and his assistant.

tj keep up communication for the ciiizeoH and the press with the world outside. Col. Ueo, T. Williams. Superintendent of Cinciunutt, (., reported promptly for dutvth morning.

Thin was accomplished bv the hlowintp nn snd deoiolitihing of several buildings on Wa- uau avenue ana congress streetB by Lieutenant General Sheridan. The district burned ovr in the south division embraces everything from the maiu branch the Chicago river to the late, embracing about one hundred blocks, uu mu aiatncr, contained all tne leading business housts. the banks, insur ance orhcee, hotels, etc. A large number oi cnurcties, including ht.

In fact all the buildings in the district which is claimed to be fire proof shared the fate of those which could make no such claims. The great central depot at the foot of Lake street has become a heap of ruins. About nine clock most of the passenger cars of the Michigan Central, Bur hogton Qulncy and Illinois Central Hailroads, were moved on the brake water and saved. In the south division, the fire extended aa 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 thirty blocks.

The build ings were generally of the cheap, er character, embracing- saloons, small shops, poor residences, etc. The district burned over on the west side commences at Taylor street; running to Dekover and to Jerfersoo; ran thence four or five blocks north, aud then moved diagonally towards the river, and finally the west line was established on Clinton street and reaching thence to the river. It moved on this line northward until it reached the Northwestern (west side) depots, where i stopped, a distance of nearly two miles from where it started. The Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago, and Chicago and St. Louis depots were in this territory.

Both passenger and freight were in this district, and arej wiped out. Almost the entire northern division from the main branch of the Chicago river to Linco'n-Park, early eight miles in length and one mile wide, is completely destroyed, including the water works, a number of chuxchei, etc. This statement embraces the districts devastated, aad embrace almost tke entire business portion of the city south of Harrison street, on the south division, and reaching out many miles, and covered almost entirely with dwellings, composed largely of the more elegant classes, which are untouched, and may now be regarded as safe from injury. For miles and miles in every direction the sidewalks, lawns, vacant lots and front yards of we 1 lepra are filled with people who have escaped from these burning dwellings, taking with them only a scanty amount of furniture and clothing. The sight is truly pitiful and harrowing They must receive immediate relief, or many from exposure and starvation will perUn.

As stated in my previous dispatch, it is utterly impossible to make an approximate estimate of the entire loss, but it can scarcely fall below one huudred and fifty millions of dollars. Of course, but a fraction of the amount can be rea limed from the Insurance. Hen. Sheridan has today telegraphed to St. Iuie to je Missouri Department there to send at once to Chicairo one hun dred thousand rations, lie telegraphed to Omaha for eight companies of soldiers and one hundred tents.

They will be all here as soon aa they can reach here by ran. lie will also order another 1U0.0U0 rations. Mayor Maon has isued a proclamation calling a meeting to-night in the west di vision to wnat provision ran be made for the relief of tbe sufferers there. There are at least one hundred thousand people wbo know not where to get provisions to satisfy their hunger. A late rumor from the north division says the devastation is leas wide spread than heretofore reported, yet undoubtedly mapy have perished.

Keelinurs of nain are visible upon the faces of tbe crowds I gathered at the newspaper bulletins in search of particulars. Newspaper extras i were lisned at eleven clock this morn- iutr. containing ttie and were sold in large numbers.

In Wail street there is intense excitement. Ail stocks have suf' fered from the sorrowing intelligence. Many citizens are taking steps for calling a relief meeting at once. Cincinnati, October 9. Information received from Chicago this morning, via St.

Lsuis and Cairo, said to be reliable, states that the following buildings are burned: -Sherman House, Chamber of Commerce, Court House, Western Union Telegraph building, and all that part of ui ntj, covering over thirty blocks. The following is from .1 .1 Wilson Chicago :10 a. m. No water. The fire is coming south on Wabash avenue, and will probably reach us before night.

A mass meeting isbsioir held hr re sided over by Governor Hays, for the relief the Chicago sufferers. A dispatch from Superintendent Wit-. son, of the Western Union Telegraph, Company. Chicago, says cooked food at this momeut would be most valuable. He says, there are at least seventy fiv thousand people in the streets.

The conflagration is unabated A meetimr of the Common council was called at one o'clock to take action for the relief of the Chicago sutterers. At the preachers' meetings or me Methodist Episcopal churches this morning, resolutions of sympathy were adopted, declaring that they would call on their congregations to co operate with the city aiuoriiia In fiord in it lmmeaisie re net.

MURPHY'S REMOVAL DEMANDED. The rostoffice Inefficiency, TliK CHICAGO F1KK New York, October 1S1. THE RKAGO FUIE. The rest tire at Chicago has created the moat profound sensation here, and has had a depressing effect upon all de-partiUe! is of business. In all insurance ottices ie utmost anxiety prevails.

It is impossi le to tell as yet the number or extent of 1 he risks in New Vork offices. While iany companies will lose ueavily, perhaps none of thm will be so seriously Injured Us to susjend. The immediate resuH (here is timidity among those whd bve money to lend, based upon the expectatioj that the insuranie companies will be compelled to call in all their available assets and realize ou securities that are readily convertible Into cash. The scene in the Stock Exchange was one of the wildest ever witnessed tbefe. I'emoniac jells, such as one heard in the Gold Boom on the "black Friday" in i860, announced the struggles of desperate men to save at least a litile from their wrecked fortunes, Gestures of despair, and faces pale with mortaJ fear, racked by ang-uisb, such as one may well wish never to see a second time, greeted one on every side.

The scene was painfuliyiu-teresting and excUiog. To a stranger it would seem that the assemblage of well-dressed men before hiua was insane. Many a broker whose fortune is slipping from his grasp, without having power to stay it. was temporarily mad, aud with good reason. Hueh a scene has not btren witnessed since tbe famous break in Bock island last summer.

A meeting of the Chamber of Commerce hs been called for Tuesday at noon, to afford so opportunity to the merchants of this city to contribute to the relief of the sufferers by the fire. At the Produce Exchange there has been intense excitement all day, and measures will be i taken at once to send provisions, to the afflicted city. Arraugements are making for a relief meeting of citizens. The call for the meeting will be issued to-night. The excitement throughout the city in coE Sequence oi the terrible news from Chicago ws intense.

Nothing like it has ben witnessed since the first days of tbe Franco Prussian per office had double or treble bulletin boards out, with the freshest items regarding the spread of the rJsmes and de-t ruction of property. Crowds of readers, amounting to several hundred, pressed eagerly around these boards, and passed from one office to the other reading the bulletins. A dense crowd filled the sidewalk and overflowed nearly to the middle of Broadway opposite the'estern Cnion Telegraph office, on the windows and glass doors of which dispatches from the ucene of the disaster are posted as soon as received. In short, nothing but the fire in Chicago 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 the shock has been such as to partially bring business to a stand still, in the insurance offices on Broadway very little was done beyond conversing about the calamity and comparing notes as to probable Josses of the several companies insuring in Chicago.

F-very moment visitors were arriving to see the Presidents or secretaries, and question them as to the ioeflr to themselves or neighboring companies, but they weretnone of tbin ab! to form even a rough estimate. The Insurance people are eserclsed oer the appalling Dews. At the ffin nderwriters the greatest apprehensions were entertained aa to the solvency qf some of the companies who have risked heavily on Chicago property. A meetiog has been called at the Chamber of Commerce for to-morrow, to take actios in the emergency, aud there is no doubt but the response will be of the heartiest and inott libeKi character, Business men of every class are ready and eager to do their daiy tow aid 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 impatience is manifested for the speedy formation of a channel through which to convey the practical assistance and 8V mja'ihy of New Vork.

The officer a of the Ureat Western and Michigan Central railroads also announce that they will transport free, of charge trom the Suspension Bridge to Chicago all supplies forwarded to the Mayor of Chicago, contributed fur the relief of the sufferers from the great tire. tAMMAN AFFAIRS. At a meeting of the Working men's party, last evening, it was resolved to appoint a committee to confer with the Citizens' Committee of beventy, with a view to affording such committee the assistance of the workingmen The business municipal reform statement from ommissioner Hilton that the expenditures of the Park Department from January 1st to October 7tb, of the present year 1b iF.oiO,94),?l. is believed to extravagant. Comptroller Green, who is connected with this department, will be consulted as to the park expenditures before any further appropriation wille granted.

Another of the ways by which the city has been plundered, is said to be found in the coal supply contract for the Court House. Immense bills have been paid for coal, though the amount furnished is said to be small. is supposed, received much of the coal contracted for. The action of the Graid Jury in the matter of the charges against Mayor Hall will probably be known to morrow. The Ei strict Attorn-sy declines to give any information concerning the indictment.

It is possible that in a few days a formal consolidation of all the anti-Tammany organizations will be effected for the coming city election. Already the leaders of these organizations are in favor of running but one ticket against the Tammany ticket. The address which the Reform delegates have issued concerning their actions at Rochester, meets with favorable com nient. The delegates say, while their efforts were not wholly successful, they accomplished more than they anticipated. The Tribune thinks the re nomination of Champlain for Attorney Ueneral an evidence of Tweed's triumph at the Rochester Convention, and that the failue to nominate Charles O'Connor to that office cost the Democratic ticket ten thousand legal votes.

CHILUKKS'S LA BOH. The New Jersey State School Commis sioner will bring before the next Legislature a bill providing that no children under sixteen years of age shall be permitted to work in the factories unless they have attended school three months in a year. In no case will they be allowed to work more than forty eight hours per week. PtlST OFFICB INEFFICIENCY. There an many complaints against the management of the Post Offics.

The distribution of the mails is badly managed, but it is said unless there Ie a reform in the matter inaugurated the business community will demand Jones' REMOVAL KEQUKSTED.

I would recommend the immediate formation of general relief committees, who would take cuai'ge of all contributions.

In order that no time may be lost in carrying relief to those of oUr fellow-citizens wbo have fallen under the dispensation of Providence, i suggest that the Chamber of Commerce, Produce Exchange, Board of Brokers and the united Pres dents of banks, and all religious and charitable societies, immediately caiUa meeting of their respective members, and from them select independent relist committees, who Bfiall solicit subscriptions of money, and food and clothing within their appropriate spheres of action. lu the meantime I am authorized to state that contributions of food and clothing sent to the depots of the Erie railroad, Hudson river aud Central railroads, under the spontaneous offers vf Jay (iuuldand Wm.

HODGE 8EXTECCK. The court martial which recently tried Major Hodge for embezzlement has sen tencei him to be cashiered, to forfeit all pay and allowances that may be due him at the date of the promulgation of this efnience, to be imprisoned at hard labor for ten years in such penitentiary as the proper authority may direct, and thereafter to be Imprisoned in such penitentiary until he shall refund to the I'uited States the amount of his embezzlement, The latter would be equal to imprisonment for life. As no one supposed that this requirement would be filled, the President today, therefore, disapproved this part of the hading, but approved that which consigns him to the penitentiary at labor for ten years. The penitentiary at Albany is designated as the place of con fineuient. CAIRO.
