On account of tho largo amount of advertising In our Sunday paper, in order to secure a proper classifica tion, advertisers are requested to hand in their favors ot tho counting-room as early as possible to-day. - Those provisions of tho Treaty of Washington which concerned Newfoundland have boon ac cepted by tbo Logislaturo of that province. Puigeorda bos .boon, saved by a valiant de fense,and tbo Corliats, after Agbting twenty-four hours,' have withdrawn, leaving 800 dead and wounded on the Hold. A revolution baa overturned tbo Government of Panama, in Central America, imprisoned its President, and gained control of all tbo deport ments, without tbo loss of a life. Tho plan for raising funds for tho dam at Cop peras Creek out of tho not revenue of tho lock and dam at Henry has boon reported favor ably by tbo Canal Committee, to which it was re ferred by tho Senate. Pope Pio Nouo is really very ill. His health has been fluctuating some timo, and ho was re cently thought to bo recovering* but his trouble baa now taken a had turn. Ho is very old, and, liko President Thiers, hls position is such that his death would a commotion altogether disproportionate to anything ho has douo during lifo. Mr. Jchbo Applegate, lato ouo of tho Indian Peace Commissioners, authorizes tho statement that tho baud of Modocs who have so defiantly resisted tho military forces of tho United States number just Jlfly-ihrco Indiana, and that those are all renegades from their tribe, refusing sub mission to tho Indian Department of Orogou. <iou. Canhy, had his actions not bcou con trolled by tho Peace Commission, could have surrounded and captured this wholo band long «iuco, and will probably havo to do so yet. House bill 300, after passing both branches of ttho Legislature, had to go back to the Ho\iso for its concurrence in tho Sonato amendments, .For fear that tho requisite two-thirds voto could •not ho counted on in tho Houso to pass tho hill thus amended, and with tho emergency clause, iho Sonato reconsidered its vote, struck ■out this clause, aud thus put tho bill into such ■ohapo that a simple majority Ju tho House could Accept it with tho amendments, This it did yesterday, and tho bilj wails tho Governor’s •aiguatmo. Tweed has ignored all tho summonses sent him to appear before tho Erio Railroad Investigation Committee, and up to tills timo has remained invisible. Tho Now York ' Assembly has ordered his arrest, ; with Jay Gould and others, for contempt. In explaining tho oauso of Sir. Tweed’s absence, his pri vate secretary yesterday made a revelation as to Jils whereabouts, which accounts perfectly for. the failure to find him.’ This being Good Frlr day, tbo clerk ingenuously remarked, Mr. Tweed does not attend to business, aud is worshiping in ono of tho churcbos up-town. It iu evident that his disappearance has boon duo to his scrupulous observance of tho fasta aud mortifi cations of tho Lonton season. Tho Modocn triod to Induco flou. Oanby to lot them stay in tho lava-bod; but, os ho says in* his despatch to Qen. Bhorman, this meant license to plunder and a stronghold to retroat to, and was refused. They ask now that they bo permitted to pick out a place for themselves. If trey woukl do this in’ good faith, all trouble vould bo over, but Qen. Canby fears they avo insincere in tills os In their former proposals.' Ouo point ho insists on—if tho llodocs surren der to our troops—the Federal Government must have paramount Jurisdiction to tho exclusion of California or Oregon,.and tho Indians must bo Bottled on somo reservation independent of Staje authority, and where they can bo kept porum* nontly quiet. Tho Pooco Commissioners have given up their negotiations, onco again, in utter disgust. " A bill has just passed both Houses of the Legislature which It would bo well for Gov. Bev eridge to examine closely before ho approves It.’ The bill nominally provides for correcting an error In the act relating to Bccordors of Deeds, but makes certain changes which are not needed. The first of those Is, that It requires the Kocord ors to make report of their receipts and expendi tures and pay over the revenue onco in six months, instead of monthly, as at present. The only purpose of this change lu to enable the Ko oordor to bavo a largo sura of county money In bis hands for six months at a time, with which to speculate or on which to receive interest. The other change is, that it repeals the law by which the charges for ro-rocordhig the burnt records In this comity wore fixed at a loss rale than is allowed for original records. Who is respon sible for this special legislation ? If Gov. Bev eridge would stop this bill , with a veto, no groat barm would bo done. Tho Chicago produce markets woro loss active yesterday, with few important changes m prices. Moss pork was qaiofc, and Co per brl higher, clos ing at $15.C5@15.75 cash, and $1G.00@10.05 seller Juno.

Hogs woro dull, but woro firmly bold at Thursday’s prices, or at 65.00(a) 5.85. Cattle wore more active and stronger. Sheep woro unchanged. ' Tho compromise railroad bill prepared by tbo Committoo of Thirteen baa boon made public. It oy portion and unjust discriminations, declares unlawful, and Axes penalties for sucli offenses. • Extortion ie charging moro than fair or reasonable rales. Unjust discrimina tion is described at groat length, in tbo. hope of covering every possible attempt of tbo railroads to discriminate between places, or per sons, or in accommodations, or in charges. Tho competition of other roads is declared to bo no exonso for any disproportion in rates or ac commodations. Tho penalty for a violation of tho law is a fine ranging from SI,OOO to $25,000, which is to bo Axed by tbo jury, in accordance with tho statute, and is to go to tho State. The citizen aggrieved may recover for himself throe times tho amount of tho unjust charge, together with his 'costs in tho suit. Each‘ railroad is to have its ■freight and passenger tariff , regulated by tho Bailroad Commissioners, and tho rates Axed by them aro prima facie reasonable. It is their duty to begin suits when they detect extortion or unjust discrimination, and they may employ counsel to assist tho Attorney-General. Tbo act of 1871 is repealed. THE SAN SALVADOR EARTHQUAKE. The telegraph brings tbo Information that the City of Ban Salvador, tbo Capital of tbo Central American Republic of the same name,was entire ly destroyed by an earthquake on tbo 4th of March, In which 800 lives wore lost and $12,000,- 000 worth of property destroyed. It is not prob able that the account, which will bo found else where, is exaggerated. Tbo country is of a vol canic character, five more or loss active vol canoes existing there within an area 140 miles in length and 40 miles in breadth. The same city has boon twice visited by earthquakes,—once in 1354 and again by a alight shock in 1859. The damage done by tbo earthquake of 1854 was equal to that reported to have occurred within a few weeks though tbo loss of lifo was leas. At that timo San Salvador was a city of 80,000 inhabitants, well built up, and enjoying a thriving commerce. There wore 100 lives lost in the earthquake of that year, and the beautiful city was almost entirely razed to tho ground. The Capital was removed for the time being, but subsequently restored In 1855. Tbo increase of population was necessari ly slow, and many years after it had only 10,000 inhabitants. It is probable that at tho date of tho last destruction tho population numbered from 20,000 to 25,000 souls. That 800 of those .should have mot their death is an evidence of tho terrible nature of tho earthquake that has visited it, and tho wholesale destruction which t brought with it. Tho trade of tho city was . chiefly, in sugar and indigo, hut it also had manufactories of iron find cotton goods. Its port on tho Pacific was Libortad, situated a few miles from tho city. Tho pQimlation was of white (mostly Spaniards), Zadinoes (of mixed white and Indian blood), negroes, and mulattoos. Tho murder aud pil lage which wore incident to tho disaster are characteristics of tho mixed aud semi-savage population. Tho topography of San Salvador is of a char acter to sustain pretty much all tbo theories of earthquakes that have boon advanced. It is a Jong, irregular strip, of coast laud, which might well illustrate tho theory of tho uneven settling, pf tbo earth’s surface. It was also of vol canic formation. Tho city which has just boon destroyed was situated within throo miles of the Ban Salvador volcano, which is about 0,000 feet high, and one of tbo largest, though ' not tbo most active, of tbo Central American volcanoes, Tbo visitation of pnrlbquakos, on whatever theory they oomo, io tho moat terrible and relentless knoun to nature. It gives no warning, aud accomplishes Us work qf death aud destruction almost instantaneously, The , groat earthquakes of recent occurrence wore one in Smyrna about a year ago, and ono in St. Thomas two years ago, and ono on tbo wbolo west coast of South America throo years ago. It would ho reasonable to suppose than San Salvador would bo abandoned after this third experience in earthquakes, particularly as tho conflagration which is reported as following it will probably consume what tho oarthquako had loft. Tho attachment to locality Is tenacious, how ever, and, as tho City of San Salvador was founded as long ago as 1523, It Is not impossible that many of tho very people who have escaped will attempt to ro-cstnbllyh themselves in tho same spot, • The promoters of a government tolographio scheme in.,tbis coputry have boon in the habit of pointing to England in proof of their asser tions that trovorumout control of tolm/ranh lines 'IMII j] CHICAGO DAILY TfaIIUJNJS: SATURDAY; APIt.IL T2, 1873, affords cheap rates, and still pays the interest ou the capital Invested. They have always neg lected to produce the actual figures that would sustain so broad an assertion, and a recent reve lation In the British Parliament of a misappro priation of funds Indicates that the British ex perience thus far does not sustain the glowing generalities that lb has produced. It seems that the telegraph managers have availed them selves of their connection with the post-ofllco sys tem to Use a largo surplus belonging to the Post-Office Department, and oven to disturb some of the savlugn-bank deposits, to defray their current expenses. It Is charged that, last year, the report was made to order by transfer ring to the capital account the sum of £015,000, which should have boon charged to current expenses. . Tot Parliament mode an additional 11 capital ” appropriation of £1, 000,000. The Department has already exhausted this sum, and will have incurred before the end of the financial year, it is stated, a liability of £BOO,OOO. England concerns itself with the misuse of funds which has been revealed, but for America the development is of importance, as showing that the Government telegraph has boon run ning behind at a'frlgktful rale. WESTERN MANUFACTURES. The advocates of a protective tariff assume that protection is essential io manufactures, and, therefore, opposition to protection is opposition to manufactures. Notwithstanding the palpable fallacy of this assumption, it constitutes the leading argument for that system of taxation. There is no State in the country which affords greater substantial Induooinoiita to mouufaoturoa. than Illinois, and this is shown in their marvel ous growth in all parts of the Stnto. The error of tho protection argument is in selecting one or two branches of manufactures, which aro made more profitable by being bolstered up with bounties, and arguing that, boclfuao protection is good for these, it must bo equally ad vantageous to'ali other manufactures. Wo givo a list of tho moro important branbhos of manufacturing industry carried on in this Stato, nouo of which aro protected by tho tariff, but all of which aro moro or loss hoavily taxed in ordor to protect other branches which havo secured tho favor of Congress by keeping a paid lobby at Washington ; Houses amt fences, Butchering and packing.

This list might bo pxtotidod almost indefi nitely, It embraces no lino of m&nufaoturo save those winch aro subjected to heavy taxation on their materials, and which aro in no substan tial or equivalent manner protected from tho supposed competition of foreign manufacturers. It also embraces nincty-nino-bundrodths of all the manufactures in tho Stato. There is not ono of those iudustri6s which would produco one dollar’s worth loss of their respective goods wore tho duty on tho foreign manufacture re pealed, and ihoro is not ono of thorn which could not produco its manufactures at a greatly reduced cost without any reduction in tho wages of labor if the tax on tho materials was re pealed. Tho value of tho foroign-mado articles of those kinds, imported into tho whole United States in a-year, will nob equal the amount of tax paid by tbo manufacturers of Illinois upon tho single article of iron consumed by them in their business. Tho manufacture of houses and barns, and of fences, and painting and repairing tho same, has become an immense and constantly-increasing production, in this State, Tho tax on lumber adds nothing to tho profit of tho manufacturer, but it increases tho cost of bio production ; it adds 20 per cent to tho cost of ©very dwelling house, barn, or fouco mado by thorn, without yielding ono cent of revenue to tho Government. Tho manufacture of wagons, drays, and carts la a most extensive one, not only in Illinois, hut in all tho Northwest. They aro indiaponaablo to farmers. They transport moro productions than nil tho ships owned in tho United States, and wo suppose their aggregate value is far iu excess of that of all tho morchaut ships aud steamers hearing tho American flag. They aro taxed upon tho wood, upon tho tiros, upon tho nuts, bolts, and screws ; thoy aro taxed upon tho can vas covering, and upon tho paint. This tax servos only to increase their cost, protects no manufac turer in Illinois, and produces ho revenue. If tho tax worb repealed, tho manufacturer, having his materials from 85 to 40 per cent cheaper, could mako hls wagon at tho same profit at a much loss price, and, producing 25 to 80 per cent moro wagons and vehicles,would givo that much additional employment, aud proportionately in crease his profits. Tho rarmifacturors of stovog, ranges, furnaces, engines, boilers, coatings, machinery, bridges, plows, roapora, mowers, thrcsliora, fanniug mil|s, smd all other utensils tho ohiof rontorinl of j .which la iron or stool, pay a tax of from -10 to P0 por cent on tho raw material. If this tax woro rpmovort, thoro would not bo an engine, bohor, fltovo-plato, tango, f urnaco, or any machinery imported that wilj not bo imported anyhow. In fact, in those linos of goods, thfre is no possibility of foreign compo titlon. Everything of that hind muat of, neces sity bo mado at homo, Tho tax, has hut ono ef fect, and that is, to discourage manufacture by so Increasing tbo coat of the raw material, and, consequently, of tho manufactured article, as to decrease tho demand for consumption, rockers of beef, pork, lord, tallow,'and grease are manufacturers. This immenuo trade, em ploying many millions of dollars of capital, and giving employment to thousands of operatives, Is heavily taxed upon tho salt for their packed moats, and on all thoir machinery and Imple ments. Wherein are they benefited by protec tion? The east of evervthim/ tbov nrodimo ta incroft3od by tho InrifT, without tho slightest ben efit to thorn. Tho millers and thomantifaptur om of broad, crackers, and blaouit employ as mticb capital, and, directly and remotely, ns much labor, ns do tho producers of plg-molal and stool, and yet their Industry in taxed heavily and oppressively 'by tho tariff .without tho romoteut benefit to them In any form. Tho niannfncturoni of trunks, saddlery, har ness, and leather goods of all kinds, of sash, doors, and blinds, furniture, wooden and willow ware, who aro iu no moro danger from foreign competition than they aro of hoing soolpod by tho Oomauchos, aro all taxed heavily upon tho materials of their respective occupations, and forced thereby to increase (ho coat of their production without tho least additional profit or benefit to them solves, and without any revenue to the Govornl mout. Wherein are they In any way benefit od by protection? Its only effect Is to reduce tho'de mand for thoso kind of goods by taking away from tho pooplo tho moans of purchasing. In no branch of manufactures Is tho tax on materials more oppressively felt than in tho matter of wearing apparel made by tailors, dress makers, and milliners. Every article entering into those manufactures pays a tax of from 40 to 100 per cent. It Is a simple problem how many more coats would bo madojf tho cloth and thread of which they*are composed could bo had for sl, where it now costs $2, and whether, if-tho number of garments made by tailors and dress makers wore increased CO per cent, it would not give moro employment and greater profit to those engaged In malting them. Tho high cost of materials so tnoroaaoa tho cost of production that a largo trade is now carried oh for tho United States by tailors in Canada, who, having tho materials free of tax, can deliver tho cloth ing in tho United Slates for loss money than the doth alone costs hero. Yet American manufac turers are told they are protected by a tax of 80 per cent on tho raw material. In short, thoro Is not a manufacture carried on in Illinois, that is flourishing and profitable, that owes ono iota of Us prosperity to tho; tariff, and which is not restrained, damaged, and Injured by that tariff, with tho single exception of iron, and ovon that would prosper'without it, . ‘Manufac turers in Illinois ,bi>YQ to struggle and contend against tho taxation which, professedly, is levied to benefit them. Oar manufacturers, moro than all other classes of tho community, aro deeply Interested in having that tax removed, and In being loft at liberty to buy iboir iron, steel; brass, copper, wood, paint, and salt freo of all tax—especially freo of all that species of taxa tion which yields Httlb or no rovouuo to tho Gov ernment, ■ ■ ■ . THE CIVIL SERVICE HUDDLE. Tho Party is in a dreadful muddle • over tho question of Civil Service' Reform. It is a prob lem that threatens tho existence of the Caucus. Credit Mobilior transactions were intangible acts which tho Caucus could twist, distort, explain", complicate, and practically cause to bo forgot ten. Tho Salary .Grab was an event upon which the Caucus could unite end which it could brazou out. But Civil Service Reform involves a prin ciple. Tho Caucus doesn't understand this, and is at a loss to know bow to deal with it. Practical reform of tho Civil Ser vice moons death to Caucus. This much is felt and dreaded, but it is not known : how to got rid of it. It comes looming up ia tho shape of a resolution at tho Philadelphia National Conven tion. It crops out in tho President's Inaugural, wbogo the country is distinctly informed that ■both the loiter and spirit of tho reform shall bo observed. It appears in Gen. Grant's un willing acceptance of Mr. ModUl’s resignation from tho Board of Civil Sorvico Commissioners, In which it is again promised that <( tho spirit (sic) of tho rules adopted will bo maintained." There aro troublesome philosophers In tho party, liko Mr. Goorgo William Curtis, who insist upon keeping tho issue boforo tho people, and who remind tho President that ho is always failing to do what ho is constantly promising to do. Tho Nation and tho Now York Evening Post in form tho party that it was on tho faith of Civil Sorvioo Reform that they gavo iu their ad herence. Even tho Now York Times insists that Civil Sorvico Reform must bo enforced, though it Is complacent enough £o bo satisfied with tho present stylo of enforcement. It is at this painful crisis that tho Baltimore ’ American stops in with some good advico to tho Party. “Abandon tho reform,” it says practi cally; “declare open war against tho bugbear; it never could last loug enough to got it into full operation; it (s already lulled. All tho Balti more removals and appointmontshavo boon made in violation and dohauco of it; now do tho sensible thing, and proclaim its death officially.” Tho advico is timely. It is dreadfully harassing to ‘servo two masters. Tho Caucus and tho

Reform will not mix. Promises and explana tions cannot hold out forovor against acts. It is painfully mortifying for tho Washington Chronicle to ho continually mouthing explana tions which nobody can beliovo. Tho course suggested by tho Baltimore American is much moro satisfactory. Tho American is loyal, and can bo trusted. It has never believed in Civil Sorvico Reform auy moro than Butler or Grant, but it has never protended to. It would ho a groat relief to Gen. Grant to " acknowl edge* its. abandonment. It iu not proknblo that ho would appoint auy moro Holdens, Caseys,' Sharpes, and Newmans than ho does noWj but ho avould bo relieved of tho neces sity of maintaining a pretense of reform with which neither ho qor tho party ho represents has auy sympathy, Tho whole question.of re forming tho Civil Sorvico through tho party in power is, as the Baltimore American points out, a more farcb, played out at that. MONOPOLY AND DISOftIMINATIOITB, Tho IXoubo of RopvqaontfttJvoß. ou Thursday, byau unanimous vote, passed Mr. Johuaton’a h|U to define monopolies, .and provide for their punishment, To define discriminations would, perhaps, have been a more accurate title. The bill will undoubtedly pass tho Senate, It cou talus one or two stump speeches that might havo boon loft out, but generally is d most excellent law, and one which ought to have boon enacted a quarter of a century ago—unless, indeed, It bo merely a re-enactment of tho common law, and, therefore, 'unnecessary.' Its provisions may bo briefly stated os follows i • . 1. That no railroad Company, express com pany, porporatlon, person, or firm doing business in Illinois) shall, by .contract with ony other cor poration or person, havo or obtain any special or exohjsjyo right or" privilege to pur chase, or eoll, ‘ PP otherwise dispose of &uy mineral, agricultural, horticultural or manufactured predicts of this or* any other Stato which maybe brought Into Illinois for sale, nor shall such company, person, &d., ex orcise any such special right thereby to prevent, hinder, delay, or embarrass free trade aod coni petition in such product 5 and every ouch ex clusive right or grant of tho »i:.mo in tho use of elevators, warehouse, to any lorbco, ngont, Ac., Blmll bo doomed a monopoly ; and all bucU con tractu, Ac., shall bo by tho courla hold to bo against tho public good and null and void. Of course, It is not compolont for tho Legislature to declare what lutorpvotatlon tho courts shall put upon contractu. The Legislature cannot usurp judicial funotlonu ? but this clause may bo regarded as surplusage. This section uproots all contracts by which railroads contract to de liver groin or other commodities to certain per sons only. 2. ProL'eribos tho oamo general prohibition ngftiuDtoxchi3ivo.ooutraotsfor tho delivery of coal, where tho railroad company owns or operates a mlno in or out of this Stale, or in tho matter of transportation from other mines. No railroad shall refuse to forward coal over other roads for ono person when It so forwards It for others, nor shall it make any discrimination In time or rates. 0. No railroad shall transfer Uo franchises, road-bed, or rolling-stock, or loaao tho same, so that by tho terms of Iho transfer orloaso any such special or exclusive rights and privileges shall bo reserved; and In ouch caso such railroad companies or lessees shall bo held to bo mo nopolies, and all such sales, leasings, Ac., shall bo null and void. 4. Tho violations of tho act aro declared to bo misdemeanors, puniohablo on conviction by flno in each caso of not loss than SSO nor moro than SSOO. 5. Any person damaged by such acts may ro ooror Uy unit thrco-fokl damages, and may, Uy application to a court of chancery, have tho con tinuance of tbo wrong enjoined. Tho bill pro vides a special reform In pleading in those cases, viz.: In commencing any suit, authorized bylhlo net, it shall bo sufficient to charge In tho complaint, informa tion, or indictment, as tho cage may bo, or allego In tho declaration, when n declaration is necessary, tho facts conalttultng tho plaintiff's causo of action, in ordinary and conolao language, without-repetition, citing this net by Its title only j and, In substance, tho section or part of section under which tho plaintiff claims, and, If tho action bo In trespass, tho actual amount of damages claimed. This is tho first symptom of Law Reform in Ill inois. In commencing any suit of this kind, par ties aro privileged to make a plain, concioo ctato monfc of tho facts, without repetition, lu auy other kind of suit, however, tho party complaining must stnto tho nature of his action, whether trespass, trespass on tho ease, trover, tort, or whnt not, and then proceed to pllo up aud multi ply words to tho end of tho chapter. Wo arc surprised that tho lawyers in tho Legislature al lowed this innovation to pass unchallenged. This act places it in tho power of any citizen to arrest, by criminal proceeding, hy action for damages and injunction, any common carrier attempting in any form to discriminate in his business aa between individuals. "Whenever any railroad transports any goods of any kind within tho State, or brings them from beyond tho State, and such goods aro to bo sold, then tho railroad company must deal with every person desiring ■like transportation of like goods upon precisely the some terms.

Accidentally mint* Special Dispatch to The Chicauo Tribune, LaSalle, 111., April 11.—Clarence S. Albright, for tho last throo years Secretary and Superin* toudout of tho Pom Coal Company, accidentally shot himself dead in a most horrible manner last night. Ho and another young man, Clement Ireland, an intimate friend of his. habitually lodged together in a bedroom in too Pirat Na tional Panic la that city. Mr. Albright hud boon spending tho ovoning at tho house of a young lady whom ho expected to marry noxt fall. Ho entered his 'bedroom at about 11 o’clock. His friend had already retired. After a littlo casual conversation, cloarlyindicating that Mr. Albright was in tho enjoyment of his usual good humor, ho took up a double-barreled gun, habitually kept iu tho bed-room ae a safeguard against burglars, and asked his friend if it was loaded. On being informed ibat only one barrel was loaded, ho said fm would load tho other, and did so. By this time his friend was nearly asleep, hut was aroused by a tovrlflo explosion. Tho room was dark. Ho called tho name of Mr. Albright. Thoro was no answer. Ho sprang out of hod, and stopped into a pool of wfirm blood, Wild with excitement, ho rjm out of tho bank to a neighboring drug store, and soon returned with a friend accompanying him. Tho horrihlo truth wuu theu 100 apparent, Ex actly how the accident occurred will never bo known, but it appears that tho unfortunate vonng man, in attempting to placo tho gun in tho corner near tho head of the bed, had, in some unaccountable way, discharged both bar rels at ouco, blowing away fully ono-thlrd of his head, tho charges entering the rigid side, a littlo in roar of tho temple, and scattering hia brains, blood, and pieces of his skull about tho room.

How to Protoot Empty Buildings and Bank Vaults, Test by tbo Board of Under- writers. Bant November, tho American District Tele graph Company of Chicago quietly took up its quarters in tho basement of No. IC3 East Wash ington street, and has over since pursued tho oven tenor of its way, making no stir, unnoticed by tho papers, hut simply extending its facil ities, and attending to its own business. So littlo ban boon said about it, that thoro are many in tho city who have never hoard of tho Com pany referred to. Some yearn ago, the Gold and Stock Telegraph was introduced, and this appli cation of electricity to tbo special uses of banks and brokem was followed up and enlarged by its application for tho constantly occurring require ments of .the house as well as of tho ofilco. A number of patents, covering this special ground, wore brought up, and tho American District Telegraph Companies of Brooklyn and Now York wore organized, and woro soon In Buccossful operation. Last year, Mr. Drew, of tho firm of Miller * Dro-rr, nna a forr oilier goniUmm -.Uo wore acquainted with tho workings of tho system at tho East, determined to Introduce it hero, aud, so far as they have gone, they find nothing to in duce them to bolievo that itwill not soon become a popular Chicago Institution. But for tho fact that business is as yet unsettled, and that many have not yet returned to tholr old quortors iu tho burnt district, the Chicago Company would cover much moro ground than ia now tho case. Tho object of this Company is toplacointho ofllco or liouao of ovory person within tho terri tory It covers tho moans of summoning a mes senger or a policeman, or of giving an alarm in case of lire, and of securing tho attendance of tho messenger or policeman in question in be tween one and three minutes. This is done by dividing a city into a number of districts, each one covering from eight to twolvo blocks, and each ouo with its own ofllco, its messengers and policemen, and its connection with tho central ofllco', and tho headquarters of tho llro-alarm telegraph. Thus far there is but one district, embracing tho territory between Adams and Randolph, and Market and Dearborn streets, but solicitors arc now out canvassing, and in a short time one or more now districts will ho created. All tho apparatus that is required consists of a small automatic instrument, with throo knobs. .Tho pressure upon ouo of theso gives notice at •tho ofllco that a messenger is wanted ; upon onothor, that a policeman is required ; and upon tho other, that a fire has broken out in the building. Tho Company has, at its Washington .street ofllco, a largo and efficient corps of mes sengers, who, as soon as tho season has ad vanced a little, and tho streets aro a little cleaner, aro to bo clothed in now and tasteful uniforms. Tho importance of such a trust worthy messenger service is apparent to every business mail, whatever his special occupation may U5. It enables a merchant to reduce his own messenger force, since more than half of tho time it is not kept • constantly employed; it enables a lawyer to send an aotlvo boy for his client or any other person whom ho may desire to see, without wasting tho timo of his clerks, or sending out on tho street in search of an uncertain errand boy. Those, office messengers will run errands and carry parcels or letters to or from any part of tho city. - Tho Company also has in its employ a number of special policemen, who can bo on Land, when needed,* In a tenth or the time that It would re quire to go out on tho street, if that wore practicable, and pick one up. In tho cose of a bank toiler, who has presented to him a note or draft about which bo has doubts, all that ho has to do is to touch tho proper knob, and then engage his customer in conversation, and in a couple of minutes a policeman will ho . in attendance to take him in charge. At present, tho Company renders its services only between Ba. m. and Gp. m.; but it is intended soon to extend tho system so as to cover tho night, so far as police and Arc-alarm business is concern ed. Then, if a person hears any ono breaking into his house, all ho has to do is to summon assistanco and quietly await the result. Tho moat timid of women will not fear to bo alone at night, when she knows that aho can in a minute command tho resources of a powerful and trustworthy cor poration. It is also tho intention of this ‘Com pany, when it has extended its operations into that part of tho city used for dwelling purposes, to provide for tho safety of tho houses of their subscribers, when tho owners are absent. A sot of wires are carried through the house in such a way that tho smartest burglar is unable to open either door or window without giving a warning, of which ho is ignorant, and in a few minutes ho finds himself caught iu a trap. A very in genious dovioo is also used for tho protection of bank vaults against attack from without. Tho inner walls of tho vault are lined with a couple of sheets of galvanized iron, and when they aro in place air is forced in between them, so as to keep thorn a short distance apart. When tho drill or other instrument of the burglar passes through thorn the air runs out, tho two galvanized surfaces como together, and the alarm is given at tho office. In case of fire, tho alarm is automatically sent to tho district office, and thence is telegraphed to tho fire-alarm headquarters, and also to tho fire Insurance patrol. Bo soon au the alarm is re ceived at the district office, a boy is started off with a red flag, and, upon reaching tho building whore tho lire is. ho stands and waves his flag, indicating to the insurance patrol, or tho steamer, the exact location of a fire. A particular number is telegraphed to tho patrol and to flro-alarm headquarters, indicating tho street on which tho lire is located, and also its position in reference to somu other street in tho district. Thus iu District No. 1, whore Ran dolph is tho dividing line for tho streets running oast and west, a certain number indicates that tho fire is on LaSalle street, south of Randolph, while another .would indicate that it was north of that street. Bo tho fire insurance patrol would know just where to turn, and would save those ono, two, or throo miuutos which aro so valuable iu tho incipient stages of a lira. Tho groat advantage of this system is that It locates a Are far more closely than do tho ordinary boxes, which cover an area of several squares. Those instruments are placed in tho house or office of ovory subscriber without any special charge, all that ho has to pay being a monthly rental of $2.50. They aro small, neat, and can be placed npona little bracket, whore, at a little distance, they look as much like a clock as anything else. Tho wires which load thence to tho district offices, are of copper, strength ened with stool, and then covered with a coating of rubber, so as to secure perfect insulation, and avqid all trouble iu case of ■ their crossing with, tho wires of tho llro-alarm telegraph. They do nob rim on posts, but on tho house tops. District No. 1 does not by any moans depend on a single >ylre, but has sixteen circuits, and, iu cose any ono of tho wires should got broken, it is easy to mako a connection with an other, so that only a fow offices will bo thrown out. and that only for a time. The lawyers of tho city have recently become fully aware of tho amount of timo and labor that may bo saved through tho use of the facilities furnished by this Company, Lawyers have cases on tho onlomlars in tho respective law courts, and aro unable to toll when they will bo called, and they have boon compelled either to tako tho chances, or to keep some ono in Court so as tonotify hem when their presence was necessary. They have tried to get tho Judges to make some arrangement relative to calling tho calendars so as to save them from snap judgments, but Judge Porter has thus far irovod recalcitrant. The evils growing out of he obstinacy of tho Judge have boon remedied i by tho following arrangement: Ouo of the Ju- i strumonts of tho District Telegraph Company 1 has boon placed in tho office of the Clerk of i ovory court. When case No. 800 is up, tho Clerk i Bresson tho knob, a iqossongor comes, and the ' lork fills out lUo appropriate blank, anil semis j It to the office of the attorney whoso case is ! next oil Urn calendar, The saving in time and < money by tho adoption of this plan is very groat, ( It is also tho intention of tho Company, aftoc i thov have added to their districts on the West < ami South Bides, p,ml have gotten In among dwolllng-houiiOH, to enlarge their sphoro and to provide Inbororo ns well mi moHHongors, etc. It a person wauls aload of coal put in, some wood flawed, or any work of that kind dono, nil ho has to do is lo call at tho cilice and state what ho doHiroß. and a man will bo sent lilm. They also intend lo have light wagons for tho trausporta tlon of goods. which will bo put nt tho Rorvlco of their BubKcrlboiH iu Uio tmmo wav. TJiub It will bo uocn that tho object of thin Company, after it gotH fairly into operation on a largo scale, is to cheapen do* moßtiolifo, and make It inmo comfortable, and to place at tho disposal of all who can pay a email monthly Hum, facilities which they could otherwise only enjoy at a high prico. It lo an attempt nt concentration and combination, to do. well through ono instrumentality tho work which to now dono poorly by many, and thoro is no doubt, bo Boon an it in generally known what tho Company Ip, that it will Unci plenty of applicants for itß services. It to a woll-oflicorod organiza tion, having for itR President Mr. Charlop W.. Drew, for Vlco-Prculdont and General Manager, Mr. L. B. Finnan, who line long boon connected with telegraphs, and for Treasurer Sir. E. 15.. Chandler, of tho city Fire-Alarm Tologtaph. Tho fact has boon monlionod of Uio connection between tho district office and tho Fire Insur ance Patrol Building on Franklin street. Yester day afternoon, at tho mooting of the Board of Undorwritoro, a proposition was mado to lest tho workings of tho District Telegraph Company, so far aa giving a fire-alarm was conconiod. and, tho members all agreeing, Messrs. Floyd, Moore, and. Fisher wore appointed & commitlco to select aomo ofilco from which to give tho alarm. They wont, accompanied by a number of other mem bers of tho Board, to tho corner of Clark and. Mouroo streets, and turned in tho alarm from an Instrument, in tho building on tho southwest corner. In a couplo of minutes tho boy was on tho ground with his alarm Hag, hut tho patrol wagon was unable to got through Clark street, south of Madison, and, consequently, It was determined to mako another trial. After timo enough had elapsed for tho wagon to return, and the horses to bo unharnessed and put back In their stalls, an alarm was given from an ofilco In tho Uonoro Block, and tuo Iran kiln street buildimr In thmn KCC - on ? a frum tEo timo tile in stmmont was toucucd, Cant.

The contract for furnishing lamp-posts for tho ensmngyoar wno yesterday awarded by tho Board of Public Works to Clark & Raffou, at $14.50 per post. r Tho Board of Public Works yesterday decided to roadvorllso for proposals for tho construction of a house, composed of stone, brick, and iron, at tho crib. Eight packages of tho English donation of books to tho Chicago Public Library arrived yesterday. Also, an ologanllv-framod copy of Bernard Cracraft’s Consols Diagrams. Tho storeof Williamson, Gray & Co.. No. 213 West Madison street, was entered by burglars' about 1 o’clock yesterday morning. A case con taining fifty revolvers, valued at SGOO, was car ried off. ’ At a meeting of tho Board of Polico, yesterday w n rnotw ' tllo rofl ig lia tion of Officer Thomas Wells, of tho First Precinct, was accepted, and Thomas Hermann was appointed special police man for tho district on Canal street, between Twelfth and Sixteenth streets. Last evening began tho Jewish feast or holi day of Passover. This holiday will last eight days, tho two first and Inst days being rigidly observed, while tho intermediate four days are only semi-holidays. This holiday is kept to commemorate the timo when Moses took tho children of Israel from Egypt, and • a history of tho event is related amid imposing ceremonies tho two first evenings before partak ing of tho supper. No bread is oaten during this timo iu Jewish families, but instead they oat a kind of unleavened bread or cracker, called Mazath, because tho Children of Israel, when leaving Egypt, had no timo to leaven their .broad, and wore therefore compelled to hake it unleavened. About 2 o’clock yesterday morning, Officer George Dottougor, while standing at the comet of Fifth nvouuo and Van Boron street, saw a man approaching him who was carrying on his shoulder a largo package. When within a short distance of tho officer, ho turned abruptly, and walked hurriedly in au opposite direction. Tho officer wont after him, when tho man throw down tho package and ran. Tho officer pursued him, and shouted to him to stop, but tho follow not obeying his sum mons, Dettiugor fired ono barrel uf his revolver after him, with what effect is not known, as tho follow escaped in tho darkness. The package was found to contain six now shawls, and they are at tho Armory, whore tho owner can got thorn. A mooting of tho Board of Directors of the Intor-Stato Industrial Exposition was hold yes terday afternoon iu tho now Sherman House, J. Irving Pearce in the Chair. There wore present O. Furst, David A. Gage, R. T. Crane, Hon. W. P. Coolbaugh, Hon. Charles B. Farwoll, Charles Fargo, \V. Lyon, Marshall Field, John B. Drake, George H. Laffin, Potter Palmer, and George A. Rovnolds. Mr. George Lafiln moved that a Committee ol throo bo appointed to nominate permanent offi cers, and report at an adjourned mooting? and that tho Committee bo appointed by tho Chair. Tho Chair appointed aa such Committee Messrs. Lafiln, Crane, Palmer, Reynolds, and Hoalng. Tho Board adjourned subject to the call of tho Committee. It has boon quite unfortunate for Mr. Wilder that ho has had to. contend with the decidedly unpleasant weather of tho past week. It was disappointing in moro than one sense, for hav ing engaged tho services of such renowned peo ple as 111 lie. Dockrill and her troupe, and having arranged a programme which, for versatility and astonishing excellence, could not bo surpassed, it was natural that tho man agement, taking a pride in their efforts, looked to see that pride gratified by largo attendance and corresponding praises. It was something to announce the champion male borer back rider of tho world in tho person of James Robinson, but when to his was coupled tho name of MUo. Dockrill, tho champion female bare back rider of tho world, tho dual exhibition of excellence in equestrianism reached its climax. This afternoon there will bo a grand matinee, and this evening MUo. DockifUl and Mono. Hone hoi, tho groat French grotesque, will take a ben efit. All tho favorite stars will add brilliancy to tho entertainment. The reason why Mayor Modill has not oxori cieod his power to tho extent of removing Police Juatlco Bauyon from tho position which no dis graces, is tho fact that tho Mayor’s bill does not confer the power necessary to roach Banyan's case. IJanyon’o office la not subject to appointment by tho Mayor, and, therefore, ho may not bo summarily removed! Ho holds his office as Justice of tho Foaco by virtue of election as ono of tho County Justices, and is hired, rather than appointed or elected, by tho Common Council to net as Police Magis trate for a stated amount nor year, for which ho contacts to transact tho oityVPolico Court busi ness in tho South Division, tho city paying him' a stated sum in lieu of tho Court foes allowed by law. Mayor Modili regrets that ho is unable to retire Bauyon to his original functions ns Juatiuo of tho Peace, but ho has looked into tho matter, and finds that tho crony of tho gamblers and tho friend of tho prostitutes is beyond his roach. Ho is of tho opinion that, in caso of a now selec tion of Police Court Justice by tho Common Council, tho Mayor could exorcise tho votu Sower, and thus prevent tho hiring of another anyon, James T. Jones and Andrew E. Jones, being brothers, are not, consequently, friends. Ou tho contrary, for somo time they havo boon ene mies. Tho only apparent cause of thoir enmity has been a disagreement about tho ownership of a horso and wagon. James is in tho express business, and has a stable at tho corner of Cot tage Grovo avonuo and Twenty-third street. Oh Thursday evening the two mon mot thoro, and, as usual, took up tho thread of their argumohfc rogardlbg tlio title to tho horso mid wagon. Andrew previously threatened td end his brother’s life, mid had, there fore, boon placed under 8100 ball by Bauyon, to koop the pence. Disregarding tho liability of his bondsman, ho struck his brother on tho head with tv bar of iron, laying open the scijlp for several inches, and pausing him to fall insensible at his foot. It should havo boon stated, that tho parties are colored, as this Is tho only reason why tho blow did not orack tho skull. When the wounded man recovered ho found 8100 missing from his pocket, and his brother gone. Ho therefore had a warrant issued for his arrest, ou the charge of robbery, which was forthwith executed. Before Justice Hinsdale, yesterday afternoon tho brother was remanded for further examination, until Monday hi $3,000 bail, *
