There was no ram, but the clouds hung heavy and thick all dav and the air was as damp and chilly as if'it bad been gotten up expressly fur hi"H ruv ctry at an ague festival.

A stranger would have taken lum lor anything else but a race horse, in fact, he looked os It he wa* up there to aid, by.his gentle tnd appearance, m quieting the ncrW and ex. enable nature ol Lancaster and Fannie oar. ticularly the latter, who seemed would as soon be up in the air, cold as It was as to be on the ground. Harry got the inside place and I-annie the outside. When the drum tapped Harry went off slowly i n the lead, Lancaster second and the Ally third each about a length apart. Before the turn was made*it became evident that Lancaster and I anme had concluded to let the leader Ax the pace, for both of them were under a good pace. Harry passed the quarter in thTrty !>,o* tbrce , fourths seconds so far nhcad l^ a ‘i V lO inud £rom b^s keels could not reach Lancaster, who was nearest him. Fun n-i:ri!rasf lb r, eeU “ n h rt h s in rear of Lancaster. passed in 1:001-2 and the mile in «.(K) in the same order as the first quarter was passed. On the back gtreWh tannic went up to within three lengths of Lancaster, whoso steady gait after Harry Kept one continual stream of soil mudflow *i‘‘ J iC^ 6 ’ and whp h the half mile was finished she lay bnt a length in rear of him. On the turn the filly came up as if she had a notion to pass Lancaster, who as soon as the filly began to crowd him drove on fast«- t owards the leader, the filly still follow ing right close up to him. • When the quarter stretch was entered, Lancaster began to drive clore to Harry, who now Increased his gait making the run past the stand more iuter ct-iing than bt-fure. The second mile was Yi itb Haocastcr almost np vith Harry, and the filly crowding in for a place where she would he free from the mud J.at .be heels of the leaders were on her. A moment, however, settled tbl case with her. for ’her jockeyWace wal with mud, which completelv b.inded bun, making it impossible for him in see how i» guide Lis' way.

Fauui? ™ row fallina to the rearyery rapidly. Oa the next turn Lancaster gamed a little, and wh.-V h .°J? e El r''tch was entered Harry led him about three lengths. The tug of war had now come. Lancaster had staked all ona brush down the last quar orcr Uariv ‘ e, R°?i, hi ’ Bpeed for the victory °^ r „^ arr y-. Both went at it now in earnest, an ?™^ dn ll n - toward the line at a furi’ oub speed. The mud flew thick and last he hind them, hut It did no harm to Fannie : she and her jockey were fooling their way along the track too far iu the roar almost to hear the rattle of the leaders* foot. The excitement during the run on the home stretch was intense. Harry was taking himself up faster than even his backers be lieved he could do, and the gaycty of the Woodburn stable was there with him. To those on the stand it seemed both horses were side by side, bnt when they neared the outcome, Harry bad a good length the ad vantage, which ho held to tbo line, winning the heat in C:ll, with some to spare; Fannie distanced. The question was now decided, and the high-headed Lancaster was beaten after bis own manner of running. Ho had chosen a brush on the homo .stretch, and Harry proved too fleet for him there. A hundred to ten was now offered on Harry. When the time for the Second JJtai came, both appeared far the start, looking well, and at tbe tap of tho drum wen! away, Hanr leading a length to the quarter In 33 seconds. At the half mile, Harry led two lengths, Lancaster keeping & little to one side, as ho did in the first heat, to avoid the mud from the heels of tho leader. On the turn, Lancaster closed up on Harry, and took position close to his side, passing tho.lhlrd quarter almost even with him. The mllc Tvas finished in 2:03, Uarrv lead ing only a half length, Lancaster laying on his quarters, a position he held to near tho end of the second mile, which Harry finished In 4:00, leading by a length. In the next turn Lancaster fell oil* a little, and when the quarter was passed he was full three lengths in the rear. Tills position he held but a short distance, when Harry gave him a bigger pap and passed the half mile five lengths in tbe lead. On the turn, Lancaster closed about half of this gap, but suddenly fell back again. When the homestretch was entered, Lancaster rallied, and lor a few strides did better, but before the run was half finished he gave up to the untiring and invincible Harry, who passed the line in a gallon, winning by a dozen lengths.

[From the Richmond (Ind.) Palladium, Jan. 3 ] Atw lear’s morning was ushered in with one of the most destructive fires onr city has ever yet experienced. About halfpast three p clock, our citizens were awakened by the bells of the different fire-engine houses and steam whistles of the foundries and machine shops, and it wa* soon discovered that the large and substantial pork bouse of Messrs. Vanneman & Reid was in domes. The fire, it is supposed, originated Iront the stove in the counting-room. Ail tho lard from about 11,000 hogs was stored on the second floor in the south end of the building, and, when the fire reached thelard It appeared to ignite the whole extent of the building. , The south end of the building, where the lire first broke out, and where the lard was, uhen the roof fell in, shot up a mass of flame near litre-* hundred feet high, and the "ind blowing from the west carried the (mines almost entirely over the tin roofing of -•lordecai Parry’s building, adjoinin'* 'un soldering the tin, and it was feared that his" building, too, would go; but fortunately there were separate wails to both buildings and M:. P.’s being about eight or ten feel higher, including his flre-wali. it was saved by the exertions of the firemen and II ?ok and Ladder Company, although he esti mates his Joss, in the destruction of his roof at about one thousand dollars. The groceries in the north part of the build ing. owned iby Messrs. Reid dc Beeler, were mostly saved, though in a damaged condi tion. By the aid of the n-ok and Ladder Company, the telegraphic apparatus in thb room over the grocery, on the second floorof the Great cetern Telegraphic Company, and most of the books and papers belonging to it, were saved. The next room cast of the company's oflice was occupied by J, H. Was son, agent of the Ohio River Salt Company and wc under-land that his books, papers and furniture were entirely destroyed. Uis loss must be about one thousand dollars, and we have not learned whether he was in sured or not. A small recess in the east cud ( 'i the bmldiug on Noble street was occupied MtU- b. IvJioUenberg, who was engaged in selling cigars, oysters, «fcc., and he lost most «d ins stock, valued at fourhundred dollars : no insurance. Messrs. Spencer, Crocker & Co. s wholesale and retail notion store, just south of and adjoining Messrs. Reid *fc Bee ler s grocery, had most of their goods on the fitbt floor; their stock of dress goods, gloves. &c., in the second story, was destroy ed. They arc fully insured. The heaviest lotFcs fall on Messrs, Vanneman, Reid, C. S. Beeler, and John P. Smith, who were engag ed in lacking pork. George Smith, ofAb ington township, J. Spohr, and two or three others whose names we did not learn, <n‘ Centre township, lost heavily on pork they had packed in the building on private ac count. llic entue loss by this fire is estimated at tJOO.OOU, but this sum wc think w : ll be considerably reduced, bv the saving of a large amount of bulk meat in the cellars, lard, damaged wheat, Ac., so that it mav be \° between §120,000 and §140,000. on which is the following insurance: SIO.OW on building; §50,000 on pork; §S,i>to.-agrain, (wheat and barley): $0,400 on stock of gro ceries—making in all §70,000. Messrs. Reid <fc Beeler had about 10,003 bushels of wheat, and 5,000 bushels of barley stored in the building.

P»rtlclputa/ In UK CHOUGH AM* STATE, The Catholic Eeform School. Letter from Ret, Dr. Duane, „ . „ , Chicago. Jan. 7, 1867. To the Editor of the Chicane Trlbnne: In your leading nrlielo of to day, under tlio caption of ‘•Chnrch and State,” you oppose tlio action of the Common CouneU commit tee, which recommends to the Legislature an amendment to the City Charter, by which they may be empowered to appropriate a sura of money, not exceeding ton thousand dollars annually, to any. institution which supports, educates, &c., destitute children whoarosent there by the city authorities and who otherwise would be inmates of the ChicagoKcform School; and you Instance the Catholic Asylum ns the one that would he especially benefited by that appropriation. Without entering into the religious aspect of the subject, upon which your argument Is entirely based, but with which the Common Council has nothing to do, 1 claim it as au act of Justice, which not only CathoUcs Bat any denomination of Christians have a ri-ht to demand. By the Constitution of the Uni ted States, religious Überty is guaranteed to all its citizens; bat of what avail is this boasted article of our Constitution if the children of Catholics or Protestants are sent to an institution where that guarantee la practically denied them? If Catholics or Protestants of any denomination think they cannot, without doing violence to their re ligious convictions, nllow the children of their respective denominations to be sent to a school where religions Indifference, or no religion, is taught, what Impropriety are they guilty of, what wrong do they commit, in asking the Slate or city to give them a share ol the funds to which they themselves contribute to support their own institutions, and to educate their own children in the re ligion of their fathers? What connection has the appropriation of a small suni ol money with au alliance be tween Church and State ? I am opposed to such an alliance. My motto is “A free Church in a free State,” and I hold to the principle that the State can make no laws which, eilbcr directly or indirectly, interfere with the religious convictions of its citizens or that would virtually deprive them of a practical participation of the public funds levied in a great part from themselves. Why not act as in Protestant Prussia, Catholic France, Austria and Belgium? In these countries there is no connection between Church and and yet Catholics, Pro testants and Jews receive a share of the public funds to support their own institutions. It is now the boast of every true American that slavery no longer exists as a black spot upon the otherwise untarnished escutcheon of our country. We have emancipated the slave. Go still farther; Emancipate the noblest part of man—tbe soul. Allow every man to worship God according to the dic tates of his own conscience, and make no laws which, by excluding him from a parti cipation of the public benefits oftlie country virtually deprive him of that right. If any class of our fellow-cilizens cannot consclcn tionsly allow the children of those belonging to their religious belief to be sent loathe Chicago Reform School, let the reformatories which they establish be supported by tho public funds to which all contribute. This is nothing hut simple justice, mid the only 'practical way of benefiting by that article of tbe Constitution which guarantees that no citizen shall sutler for his religious con victions, when these convictions arc not op posed to public order or public morality. Besides, the granting of this small sum of money will, in place of adding to the expen ditures of the city, save it thousands of dollars. It the Chicago Iteform School re ceive sixty-two thousand dollars annually to support its small number of inmates, ten thousand dollars per year to support a much larger number in the Catholic Asylum will save the citizens of Chicago from an in creased tax of’at least forty thousand dol lars. For economical reasons, then, if no other, the action of the Common Council committee should meet with the hearty co operation of every liberal minded man, and of every citizen who is opposed to the un necessary expenditure of tho public funds. 1 trust, then, the Common Council of this great Metropolis of the West will suffer no outward pressure to prevent them from do ing justice to every class of their fellow-citi zens.

Chicago City Sevens irj 100 Cook County Sevens 96 07 Chamber of Commerce 03 gfi lldow wc give our usual summary of Iho quar terly statements of the National Backs of this city, as sworn to and published 10-d»y. The state ments Lave evidently been, in some instances, prepared with more than usual care. It Is assorted In some quarters, that considerable “ swapping ” of checks was done on Saturday, and the large clcaricgs (over 12,700,000) at the Clearing House this morning, apparently give some color to tho assertion. It is understood that one institution, winch reports its cash on hand as $322,203.56 fn legal tenders, and $151,055 tn&ffiy-thracfnt* (?) in notes of National Banks, debited the Clearing House this morning with over $11)0,000 in checks on city hanks, of which no mention is made in its quarterly report. It is to be regretted that all the statements did not show separately the amount of cash on hand In legal tenders, National currency and checks on city banks. These statcmenls do not fulfil the doty U was expected they wcnld do by the framers ol the national currency act. Such suppose that them statements will cive an exhibit of the average condition of the banks, tut experience shows to the contrary. They are an unmitigated piece of deception—a perfect farce—and for the credit of the banking interests ot Chicago, ought to be done away ‘ with. Let us Lave a weekly state ment of loans, deposits, and cash on hand, making the Legal Tenders a separate Item—such as is given by the backs of New York, Boston and Philadelphia— and then the mercantile public nil! be scared the infliction of these quarterly contractions which take place on the eve of each statement. The hanks will also be benefited, os they mil not then be obliged to “slaughter” Ex change, to obtain currency for a weekly state ment. “Cooking” statements may do very well for Milwaukee or other country towns, but for Chicago, the operation Is imbecile, and deserves all the pity which the most charitable raw bestow.

The withdrawal of the com pound notes from the banks at maturity will force upon them a conservative policy which cannot fail to be felt hy their debtors, who mas', pay up aa fut as the hanks are obliged to contract hy the mu Luring of their intcrcst-boarlng reserve. Tho following letter from Mr, John Thompson, whose experience In currency and banking give*, bis opinions great weight, is entitled to consideration by Congress: rr /■ o „ New Yobs, January 1, 1867. IT. G. F awt, Esq.—Dear Sir: It will not be convenient for me to come to Washington, nor have I any taste to appear as the advocate or op ponent of the measures before Congress. - 1 wish yon, therefore, to enter my protest to the flon.Mr.Boopor, and others, against amending the National Bank law so that the banks caanol count, in their resttve money, their compound interest notes. When they are duo and payable they should not be counted as money; but to compeMbe banks to substitute gold or groan hacks for the compounds they hold, any faster than they fall due, will sorely cause a severe re vulsion m tho money market, and tho Govern ment itself will not be among the minor suffer ers. The banks will necessarily violate the law as regards their reserve, or fall, many of them ontnghL I wish, also, to enter my protest against taking currency from the large and safe banks that It any be distributed, as Mr. Hooper’s bill pro poses, among small and Car-off banks, not that I (are 'or the interest of the banks In the profits on the currency, but I do care for the safetv of tho currency, and I think It a misfortune that the Jorge banks in the large cities are not the issuers . of 1116 ennency than they now have oat. A m i'i th i r, T “Wlom or the currency Is sued by the banks In this city, Boston and Phila delphia, Is certainly freer from casualty than the same amount Issued in tho South or We«L Another point in Mr. Hooper’s bill I think is against the spirit of the age, which Is the restric tion or the rates of interest and the severe pen alty lo , r usury which It Imposes. 1 should be pleased to see a uniform rate of interest, say seven percent, with privilege, lu writing, to take ten per cent, regardless of Stale laws. » cry respectfully yonre, J. Tnojtpsox. —The Boston Advertiser observes : The condition of the money market shows no material change. The call for money has been moderately active, and the indications of any sen sible relief from the payment of dividends are scarcely observable as yet, previous ruling rates being generally fully sustained. Call loans still rule at 0 per cent and upward, and in commercial S there Is no change to note, prime short paper being held at 0 to 7 per cent, and longer dates, with other good notes, taldng a wide range, according to circumstances- The Government depositoriee are gaining a little in . t 'P oS *k f i and as far ea this goes, its effect will tend to make the market a little easier. —The Philadelphia Press remarks: “Money was in moderate demand, though lend er .Y**® fos desirous topart with tLirfSnds, as It I? believed that by having their money at ready better ableto solve the advantaged likely to an»e oat of the expected financial complications of tae next few weeks, tall loans range from 6to 7 per cent.
