The luvn-lon of Canada wis steadily closed, as a diversion ol funds and material from the legiti mate purpose of the organization, viz: the libera tion of Ireland, and continued to assert that before the first day of January, ISC7, he would have effected bis return to Ireland and opened the revolution.

About two weeksagoareportoftbo sailing of Stephens was circulated iu the city by one of the daily papers In this city. Tho report originated with a member of tho press, and was matmfic tnrvd for sensation purposes, the plan aad man ner of patting together the boas was formed and incubated In the prolific brain of the reporter— Stephens being privy to the transaction, and promising to keep himself ont of sight until the ■flair should have blown over, Unfortunately for theaucec-s of the hoax, however, Stephens was seen In hU private office, attending to busi ness a? usual, the next day. The canard— like many others whichhavo been circulated In regard lo the whereabouts of the Fenian Head Centre—was simply a rutf intend’d to deceive the English authorities and enable Mr. Stephens to get off In safety when the boar of trial shonld be nearer at hand. Pur several days Mr. Step Lena baa not been seen at the Fcaltn headquarters, and Fenian officials have steadfast ly refused to give any information in regard to him. Telegrams purporting lo have been receiv ed from him have been shown, and the Impres sion has been conveyed that Mr. S. had left the city. This Is In accordance with the programme agreed upon between Mr. S, and the reporter—al-o a Fenian—of the daily paper in which the caraani was pi Inted—the purpose of the whole being »m --ply to mislead spies and Informers, and enable him to slip off In disguise, while the detectives are looking for him In the wrong direction. Un less Stephen- has left America within the last week, he U still in this city, awaiting hit oppor tunity to get off without being dogged by detec tives. of whom at least half a doxcu were lurking about his office yesterday, and carefully nottsg every movement of Colonel Kelly, his secretary and general adviser. At the Headquarters be has nor been seen for some days, although Colonel Kelly has been In constant communication with him. WHIT THE nairs HLVE BXZS DOtKO. Since the Roberts* fiatco and during the t-mpo rary lull that followed it. the Fenian? were really working more fdillgenllj than they had ever been before. A regular system o( collecting arm?, old and new, wherever they could be boucht or beg ged, was .Inaugurated and secretly carried ou. If a Fentan knew where a musket or a rifle could be bought, he was instructed to buy It aud baud it over to the] Head Centre. The wolf Tone Circle in Brooklyn Is known to have collected 133 maskets in this way in a single week daring the month of October; and an Idea of the vast number of arms which have been gotten together within three months by the Fe nians, may he gathered from the bet ever; circle under the control of Mr Stephens throughout the United States, has been similarly engaged In sup plying arras and material, every individual pick ing np a market or a rifle wherever he could find ooe, aud rtkntly conveying it to headquarters or to the possession of the Head Centre. Many have probably been less successful than the Wolf Tone Circle; but potting all together and making mo«t liberal deductions, the quantity of material col lected since the first of July must be perfectly huge In tho aggregate, and will not at the least calcnlaticn fall short ofShCOO stand of arms. These have been smuggled into Ireland In small quantities—the idea of smuggling In any great quantity at a time having been abandoned a* Im practicable—and most of tbem have been con -veved to the North of the Island, and concealed among mountain fastnesses. The pi an of the Fenlana. Is is bet, to begin the rebellion In the North, and those who suppose Dublin to be the centre of the Fenian movement ate mi-taken. Whenever tbs ball is opened, it will be by the hurling of torrents of armed men from the North open the less barren but less defensible regions of the Sonth. Whether it mil succeed ia another question. Stephens is confi dent of success, at*a bases his confidence upon three things: 1. The disafffccllon of Irishmen In the English ‘T'The calculation that England cannot within three months bring more than SQ,OiX) available troops against him. 3. The certainty that he Can pnt 75,000 well trained men into the field, leaving, as he asserts, a reserve of 2Cn,OfV more. Who is to enpply so vast an army with rations Is a queslloa not yet solved. Mr. Stephens ex pects, however, that the sympathy or the Irish will be with him, and that those who arc left at home will endure untold privations for too sake of keeping the srmyin fighting trim.

Tee lob* by fer general delivery was about half the sue of the present I’ojtmvicr’B pri\ate office. and there was only one window, whoa nulls arrived, the space down stairs was so small that they bra to be carried op stairs tn baskets to be dis tributee*. and people who came for letters on mall days termed In long lines, stretching away down street, as voters now do at election polls, taking tbdr turns on thu “first come, first served” principle 11. L. Stuart followed Wm. Stewart, both gen tlemen enjoying Iml tour year terms, Yhcn it. L. Wilson enjoyed the fleeting glories of the poat maatcrsblp for two years, and was supplanted be Mr. G. W. Dole. By this lime, the extou !-‘d busi ness eftbe Chicago Post Office. growing In pro portion to <lc rapid Increase In population and wealth of the cuy, had necessitated a removal to larger quarters. The little brick box wh'Chhad formerly served, ou the corner of thu alley on Clark street, w-rcrc tho Sncncan House now stands, was no longer tenable, and part of tne iKisncs building then erected, wad modelled eo as to accommodate the Dost Office. Iho portion used for that]mrposo was the present counting room ot andtbo room sow occunlcd b; ‘ }j the tea store oa the corner ot Uio allcv. Th~»o were then deemed very ctnimodlsaa qaortorj, large enough to do handsomely for maty years to come. slr.ils were no* mach more rcgalar than id the olden time, hot even aa late as in l&ls tha aig was sometimes a week without o mail, hi cun mcr-llmc, malls were carried across the lake from N<w BcQhlo. and in winter were bronchi fbnnd liy stage from Kalamazoo, n long and anoject to many accidents and delays. Sorapid was the building ap of Chicago, and ao speedily were her systems of communica tion with East. South, and West developed and improved, that it was htu a short time before the necessity for a et 11 larger ofllcc became imperative. At the samo time, the growing importance of the business of the Teibuse, which even then bad 'ekett rank as the leading newspaper of the North eel. demanded the nse of more than half the 'ce tb ” ' ” space then occupied by the Post Office for the oar poses cf a and business office. Another location had to be found for the Post Office, which seems to hare been almost a? tinsel* tied and peripatetic as the Hoard of Trade in lie early days. Isaac Cook, the seventh Postmaster on the list, found a new place for bis office in what was then as “ilie brick block,* 4 on the west aide of Dearborn street, on the comer of the alley between Itandolph and Washington streets. litre rest was loauu for a considerable time, and here, after Mr. Cook bad held the sceptre lor four years, one William Price reigned lu Ids stead. Price’-* authority was of short duration, only one year, and then ilr. Cook was reappointed, and remained la ofllce three years. The tint Iccuoib nt. appointed by President Lincoln, was the late J. L. beripps. one of the most worthy citizens of Chicago, who after filling the ofllce with admirable ability and Integ rity for four years, resigned, and was succeeded by Mr. Pamncilloard. one of the (ear capable of filling Li? place. Mr. lloard was succeeded, on Friday, by Colonel Robert A. Gillmorc. a gallon! officer, who went into the war ns Manr 1c the Twenty-sixth Regiment Illinois Volon cntcers. and fcogbt throng every ta.arcmont ta which his command was brought Into action, until they were honorably discharged from the service, raisin? himself to the rank of lieutenant Colonel, and serving much of the lime as Colonel in command. It la now about seven years since the last removal of the Post Office, from th« old ••hi lek block,’’ down to the prescat magnificent building on the corner of Dearborn and Monroe street-. One cannot but view with wonder the great and unprecedentedly rapid ext- nsion of our Pc.t Office, one of the moat thoroughly represen tative institutions of a city, which In about thirty five years has grown from a few boot-legs tacked to the wall of a country store up to a splendid ed ifice; the mails to and from wnich have mcics.-aJ from the few idlers loosely carri<-d in a ualf-brecd Indian’s breeches porket, so a* to amount at- resdv to some twenty tons per dtem; which was’ then managed easily ny one clerk In the Intervals of hi* business, and now employs busily over our hundred and sixty men. Some nineteen months ago, Mr. Remolds, the Assistant Postmaster, weighed the outgoing malls for thirty consecutive days and found that the average weight then was nineteen tons per day. Since that time, there has been a gradual and steady Increase, but no weighing has since taken place. At the present time on* hvnSrrd cr,il tfcrnly “locked cogs”—those containing let ters—and about three hundred bags of papers are sent out daily- In addition to tho immense num ber of new* paper? thus distributed from the Gar den CltT through the Northwest, the reader will remember that by far the largest portion of the country circulation of the dallies gov- in bun dles which arc sever enclosed in bags, and winch do not go through the Tost Offico. Of the Tmnusx, tor instance, thirty thousand per diem go in this cam cr every week day. But, to return (Tom this digression. It may not be uninteresting to readers to review something of the machinery of the Chicago Port Office as i: oowis, in order to ttndcntana and appreciate Us extent ard the immense amount of labor involved in its duly business. For this puiporc let c: glance at the several , U.M,if Into which Its details are divided. First of these U the “ Eastern I’.oam.".where all the mall colay cut is soned and pot up In package* for thj sev eral offices to which the letters are addressed.

Both, uheae departments are on the first floor, and the letters from them, now tn«ir<> op into packages, iro scot fromlbem dotru to the basement, lo what U colled the " throwing department.” Here two huge scml-circalir frames or walls, with many openings therein, sur round two tables which fit their Iron la. The packages, by huge basketfolls, arc heaped op on the tables,and clerks hnri them as rapidly a? one re, there and yonder Into the yawn ing openings through which they drop Into boxes, ready tor eliding into bags. The greatest (liifl cnlvy in the entire work ism this deportment, tor each one of these boxes reptnsenu a distributing office from which packages arc redistributed to half a down or perhaps twvuyother smaller offices. Ihe “thrower” must tncreloro remember all these offices, perhaps five hundred of them, and Inc distributing office through which the pack ages for each mart go, and, as he throws, the remembrance of the direction of each package mnst spring so instantly to bis brain as to s<wm almost Instinctive. The distribution of newspa pers la also done throngh this department, under charge of Mr. IhJ. Blatuieil.

In this department forty* seven carriers and seven clerk* have been the force employed op to Satnrday,when an addi tional carrier was appointed. The salaries of the omen were qnlte email, ranging from 5710 per annum to £SSQ, jot there has tons far been' frond co dfffl colty in oblaudug active, intelligent and trust worthy men for the position. Ills a fact worthy of notice, that while the business of tbo depart ment has been quadrupled, the number of persons employed in it has not been lucrea-ed by one fourth. Many of the largest business hooves in the city have given up their boxes, and cow rely altogether npon the carriers' free delivery system, : feeling aeanred of the entire reliability i of the men employed, end the superior adroota* 1 cos of the system. . ! 'the Post Ofiico alto makes use of a large room on the second door ot the building, where are located the “ Registered Letters" and “ Money Orders" departments. The first of these, under Mr Samuel Blanchard, employs two clerks and a boy, and has enough work In it to keep them Quito busy. Abont one hundred and seventy five registered letters per d'em pass through this room, and as the address of each has to be copied »evm times, and about the same cumber of checkings, stampings, enterings, etc., done on Us account, it will be understood that there la no lack of labor In Ibis department. The “Money Order' 1 department Is presided over by Mr. T. L. llolbrook, who nas two assistants. This office Is now fourth In the order of extent of money orders. Mew York Is first, Philadelphia second,Washington third. Bos ton brags of being tbo "bub of the universe," bnt sirce the money-order system Teas established In May. ISU, the has only bought something over six thousand, while Chicago has bought over thirteen thousand. It maybe remarked in this 2UIX. connection that man y people foolishly retain in their bands the order Riven them, supposing It to be t receipt. The Department fives no receipt, and without that order the person to whom tie money Is consigned cannot obtain it. This his occasioned much trouble in limes past, especially as these orders were counted “dead” bj the De partment, after ninety days. The time baa notv been extended, however, so that these orders are good for a year. Another new order has, however, been but re ccntiy Issued by the Deportment, that no person may purchase on one day more than three orders. There orders arc for any amount required, up to ?SP, and if an unlimited purchase of tbem-were al lowed, Uwouid Indict a serious Injnrv upon the Express Company. An instance oi tfila was re cently afforded by a transaction in New York, where a man ho-igliiat one time ninety-sir money orders, of $lO each, for transmission to California. In this way the transmission of hU money cost him hot fit, whereas,',if sent byexpreeg. the cost would have been ?! It. It was nrooabiv this which Induc' d tla* n**w orticr. The amount now pissing through this department U not less than from ugh) to ten thum-and dollars per week. One other department ha* been unnoticed, that of the carrying of the mail bags to and from (mine. In this rervico eight men, eight wagons, and seventeen horses, ore employed. Iho present rooms occupied by the Post Office are already too smalt for the Immense amount of business transacted In them, and it Is believed thit wlUiln a couple of years at Clio far thest. It will be ueccrsary to relieve the cramping now felt in ail the department*, by either taking Into the Post Office space the rooms now occupied by the Custom Hnr.«e in ibj? same building, or by finding new and larger quarters. The facts thus cited show succinctly the present magnitude ut tbo Institution. to the cuntiol of which Colonel (•Illmorc has been appointed, sort no comment i-* ticc**«;iry to any rende r who has duly uomd the eariy tmtorvof this Post Office, ae related by us, to coarec a pro found Impretsloa of the rapid aud vlffjroiM growth of the city whos* •nterpit*o fat* n*-re*-’- tated the unprecedented procre-eion of this de partment (mm isil null* the present day.

THE 2UIIRYIXG WO2l AX. Xlic Dclalls of a Tale Uiat Ik a Sequel to a Former Tale, [From the Dubuque Hally Times, Novembcr2U] Some time since we recorded the story of a lady who married under false pretences one Nicholas Boch, of Duulelth, claiming to have two thousand dollars on deposit in a Du buque hanh, and how, after marriaro, her possessions faded Into thin air and disap peared, she herself disappearing soon after ward. She turns up again—this time in PlftltrllJc, pomr twenty tulloc distant from the scene of her fbrmcr labor oflove. A short time since. Mr. Bock, the victim of the former matrimonial misadventure, bad some business at Plaltville; so be bitched un a team and drove over to that enterpris ing town. On arriving there, be found the town on the qui vice oh account of a strange and rather roinnutic occurrence that bad re cently taken place near there. The Btory ran that a comely and accom plished lady, well dressed and Hush with her small chance, and who held the fee simple to a large amount of real estate lu the llourhh- Inc city of Chicago, having by accident wan dered Into the rural districts, had found enoughjn the neighborhood of Plattrlllo to delay her return for some time.* The attrac tion was nothing more nor leas than a well to-do German farmer, for whom she had con ceived an nifectlon truly romantic In its char acter. and which in such a gushing nature as hers could not be repressed from manifesting itself in a manner exceedingly complimenta ry towards the honest, unsophisticated far mer— so she let it gush 1 The consequence was a speedy commission of matrimony. Then nothing wou’d do but the new made husband must sell his farm and go with his beautifulJirlde to the Garden CltV, to share her possessions and shine in the tint circles of Chit ago society. The farm was accord .ingly ottered low for cosh; there was an evi dent disposition on the part of the bride to have all business condnctcd on a cash basis, which spoke well for her financial ability. The farm was sold, and the happy husband tame to Plattevillc to have the proper wri tings made out. Oddly enough, Mr. Bocb had been In Plattevillc just long enough to hear the out lines tof this romantic incident, when his brolhcr-ln-law. who lives not far from that Slace, entered the store In which he was. ot exactly his brother-in-law, either, but the nest thing to man whose sister Mr. Boeh*s brother had married. He Introduced this gentleman to his wife—whereat the lat ter was much surprised, ds he had never beard of his brother-in-law - be ing married. But he was much more surprised to learn that his brother -1 tndaw was the person whoso good fortune In securing the affection of a rich and fashion able Chicago lady bad just been to glowing ly set forth And language is Inadequate to express his surprise at the discovery that his : brutber-in-law’6 wife was the identical 1 woman whom he had married In Duulelth a few weeks before. “ Mf. Bcch—my wife,” said the proud husband. “D«r tyfel. you say,” responded Boch, “I links dat Ish mine Iran!” An explanation was Inevitable, and the twain stepped into a saloon to have it out 4 over “gwte glass la;;cr.” When they came* np, their mutual wife was missing. Slie baJ probably come to the conclusion that has . bands were getting too thick about then » and that her best course was to leave. ’’ Such is the story, as told ua yesterday* by a gentleman direct from Plattvllle. A NOTEL BRIZE FIGHT. Content Between a Sailor and a F tear. [From the New York World, November as.] The “shakc-up” over several of th- j spec tator* departed and the remainder ad’ turned to the bar, where they refreshed thr -mselves with some “pood tipple.” Then i etnrnlng to the pit, a sailor, Jock Moore by name. In poking round came across “hr oin" who prowled him a welcome. Jack responded with an “avast heave,” and “si Jvered his timbers” if he wouldn’t “fight It , e hear for drinks.” The proposition was at am receiv ed with laughter, but the sailor was in earn est and In proof of his sincerity , posted the monev. Kit not at all unused to this novel trial trial of strength, consent* dto stand se curity for the bear's share oft’ ac money, and so it was arranged. Moore is u sioullv-bullt an d very musen lar man, of about five feet ni ne. Ho weighs somewhere abont 160 lbs., a* id seemed likely to be a match for even i t skilful member of the ring. There Is. that dare-devil expression about his face * that usually beto .ken men who have folio? red a sea-faring life, while a well-bronzed eh eck and thinly-far rowed brow denoted he had seen some ser vlce. . , . “Bruin, ’ as he was Ic d oat, assuredly look ed anvthinp but a mean antagonist. His shaggy hair banging from and legs, his massive head, and wicked look, showed that he would not indulge in very much child’s play, and a shndacr passed through the spectators as they thoa gSt «f the dcadiv hng be might give were, so inclined. Moore seemed determined'eostandhb "round and so the bear was lot l j>ose. Jiowut I.— Moore steads determinedly awaiting an attack, wioßo “Bruin” waddles wickedly round the pl.t, eyeing his adversary in a very unpleasant micuer. Not knowing what might result fvom. delay, Moore deter mines to force the fight, and so delivers a left bander well between Bruin’s eyes; “Bruin” slowly raised himself and placed a paw on Moore’s shoulders. • Moore strove to seize the brute I.x.
