The robber could not be found at the time, and Mr Kills appears to have given such conflicting state ments as to the amount taken from him, that tbe detectives found considerable difficulty In pro ceeding. On return Leg to Gricticll, Mr. Kill* re lated me misfortunes to the citizens, who held an indignation meeting oo the subject, ana appointed their Major. Samuel Cooper, Esq., to take steps to di-covcr tbe perpetrators of this robbery. Mr. Cooper came to Ibis city a few dava ago and succeeded in ascertaining tbe fohoMng tacts: On tbs day of the robliery Mr. Kids, in compani with two men, Dames ilci:n«u.-sy and —.Mluou, went Into Skelton & Pomeroy*e oUice, on Dearborn street, ani de tirf-d them to cash a certificate of deposit for f I.NKI.

THE FENIAN NEWS. Bow it was Received in Chleago— Opinions and SaraiMs~Jaae* Stephens—The Feeling-Beet* ing lesierdsjr. Hie world ofFenla is ones more in a whirl of excitement- The news from across the water has once more stirred op the blood to fever b»»t. The nows that Stephen*, the 0.0,1. &, has reached Ireland with three bnadrad officers and or four vessels, sad beaded a force of Fenians at Mnfojney, seamed to take them an by surprise. It la difficult to tell whether the leaders were la the secret or not, though the chances ere that o Je y ■ did know something about 1L as they have been seen In frequent whispered consultation for some days patios if something was in the wind. The two arbiters of Fenian sentfaaeat In this aty—Scanlon and Hor risen—hare been together on the street and In private, nil the time boar In talking and discos emy with that gravity of countenance which on a Celtic face Is a sure sign that the wearer “ could an' if bo wonld‘* tell something which would con vulse some circles other Fenian. Bat if there were cognizant of the movement it is next to an absolute certainty that tho rank and file knew nothing of the august movement on the carpet. The expressions of opinion on the subject on Saturday, were many and varied, ibe halls where once the circles met for nightly dnlLbnt which lor some time past hare been comparatively de scried, were visited oy very many, - especially doringltheafternoonand evening, all discussing the news with animation, and passing their com ments on Its probable truth or unreliability. There was hot one sentiment, which seemed to bo so general that It may be called universal: that was, a willingness logo over and help if the occa sion were reallrexlitenr, and the means ol traas portatiqn could be in any way obtained. “ P Oslll of universality was the conviction that the news u true. The only difficulty was to tmderetaoa bow .Stephens could have a hand in the matter after all that had transpired, men with many came the revulsion of admiration fop the man. They aaw aa in a flash of lightning the whole of his dark past opened np to their gaze. Be had dissembled to some purpose. Jud-rie" it unsafe to trust any with hla plana save those who were to act with him, he had deceived the very - elect, and had borne like a true hero all the scorn and contumely which had been heaped on his devoted head, content to anfrer an without a murmur, if he could but serve tho cause. Be Lad planned and plotted, and what with indiscreet friends and jealous enemies, his plans had all been revealed before their accomplishment; then he would strike into • nownath- He lormaliysbandoned the cause, publicly declared that there was no faopefor Ire land, end suffered blmsctf to be superseded In bte high office that be might throw the detectives off hi* track, and came down on the Sassenach like a wolf on the told when the walch-dogs were aleoo ing. * Thfrwa* not, however, the universal feeling There weie very macy who looked on Stephens as a gay deceiver, and thought that either his presence wat announced only in order to give confidence in the success of the movemcnC or that some one had- nsrscnaied him in Ireland for the purpose of getting the Irishmen there (oral ly round him. These. howe\*er, eared not about the personality. They looked to the probaole result of the measure, not at the min, and their equanimity was not disturbed by the question ,t!? J h i'n7rc“Sa a r- oUclt,e: ‘■ l * Thus the range of opinion. The impulse was strong; not, perhaps bo strong a* It would hare been bad tney not been so often deceived by hopes never realized. Were it annonneed that a reyoJnilon had really broken oat in Ireland, that help is needed, and that men ana munitions can bo tramported thither, Chicago would probably mus ter five thousand stalwart Celts within three days, allwtiiicg logo at (bo word march. But these annoancemer.ts were not made, and so with that lastivnalnal impatience peculiar to the situation the subject wasi discussed and looked at in all Us bearings, possible and impossible, and the resolve with the multitude was but naif formed. arXETIKQ OF BTrPHZXB CEBCXt A meeting was held yesterday Mtemoon, in Üblicb’s Block, the object being, in view of the in ti Licence of an uprising la Ireland, to reorganize tbe St“fh«s Circle of tho Fenian Brotherhood. There were pre-enta large number of syzDpa(bu er» with tbe movement, but there was a total lack ot cctliofiarm, and but six persons enrolled their names as snpp irters of this movunent. Mr. ifaomas O’Connor, Centre of tbe Stephens Circle, presided, and Mr. Patrick Mc-Jreery acted as Secretary. The meeting was addressed by a few advocates ot the Stephens policy, but each one mainly spoke to impress upon his hearers that tbe time for speech-making bad passed. The whole sericeof speeches aid noi occupy twenty minutes; it was long enough, however, to develop tbe hostility existing, here, between tbe two wings of the organization. The first who carolled bis name was a Mr. Jerry O’Mabony, and iu doing it be took occasion to declare that he baa no con nection with the “fomona or infamous” O’Mahony of New York. Mr. «i. ' «l. Crow ley was called upon lor a speech, which he declined to made. Be remarked that he came to the meeting as a “silent spectator” and bad no intention of participating in its action. Hereupon the Chairman suggested that “ Nero fiddled whUe Rome was burning, aud history oulv fontd a parallel for such iniquity in the silent special*-rvhlp at this time of irishmen.” t o this Mr. Crowley replied that he did “not intend to pay ai.y attention to the remarks of ibat gentleman; hut if he were worth attending to be perhaps wonld make some remarks.” The Cbiir ’Aon essayed to throw oil upon tbe troubled waters, excusing his remark by the statement that Lis Interest was in this cause to so great an extent that be bad perhaps made an unparliamentary allu sion. He had, bowvver, ween tbe patriots ofht* land disbelieved when they promised action, and now, when the cable (ells the tale of a promise kept, tbe came incredulity prevails. Here a voice asked what had been done with the money already subscribed, and then tbe Chair said the Irish peo pic had cot got U, ann then a cry came up to aat who did. This course of conversation was sub dued by the enrollment of names. Those ot deny O'Mahonv, Johu !•. Cease, Edward Clark, John Bums, Matthew Armstroug. and Anthony Donohue. Tbe meeting then aljourncd until Tburedav evening next. _ THE KILLING QF MRS. HAWKES. Suspicions that it was not “Accidental” —Heary Insurance on her Life— Correlatire Evidence—The Hus band Arrested on the Charge of Harder* A young man named M. A. Hawkes, a traveller for Ic. u. CctnnV steel engraving house, of this city, was arrestea and placou In ihe County Jal‘ on Friday ovemeg, charged with the mur der of hla wile. It will be remem bered that some time abont the middle of August lo*t the wife of liawke% »bo was then residing in St. Paul, Minn., was accidentally shol by her husband in 'be Mansion House. A* reported ai the time, Bawkes was cleaning a revolver, «hcn by eome acad-nt It went cn. and tbe ball Indeed In her heart, killing her almost instantly. A Coroner’s Inqaest was held upon the body of Mta Haivkes, and a verdict ot accidental shooting was returned. The testi mony upon which the jury gave their verdict was that of a servant girl, and tltwees, wco appeared to be frantic with grief Too girl bad just gone Into their room to answer the be!], when site saw Ua«kcs sitting by a 'fthl* cleaning bis revolver, anil his wile beside him. Just as she tamed to leave the room the-pistol went oIT, and Mrs. Hawkvs fell dead. the account given of the occorrcnc; at the time. No suspicion was euuraiaei by anyone that tbe shoo’tag was other than acaiden lal.aml tbe husband's apparent.grief tended to Confirm the Impression, Hawke* returned lo Chi cago, w here be has ever since remained in the em ploy of Mr. Curran. Circumstance* have since transpired In relation to the erair, wbicn mil throw a serious doubt up on the question of accident, and place Mr Hawke* in a very unenviable po-itloa. It was found shortly after the death of Mrs. flawkea that Join' policies ofXn«cranceuDon her life, amounting to fn.Wfl had been eflodi-cjby Mr.Uawkca. The sus picion* of the insurance companies were at once aroused, end they deferred a settlement of tbe claim, tor the puipose ol privately investigating the circumstances. Tbe assistance ol Mr.Tnrtle's detective agency was called in, and the more nicniß of Hankie were closely watched. The far cl tbe lady's life being so heavily m*»ared by htr husband, taken In connection with the shoot ing, vbtcb occurred very soon after their mar* nage, was enough to excite a strong suspicion of Kmlplay. It was rememb?ied, too, that about a year t« ore, a man named Halsterd bad be n “ac ciaentaily ” killed by Ua .vkes while the two were out snipe shouting. They wore standing beside a fence, when the oat relot Hawke*' fowling-piece was tlbc&argcd. lodging the contents in tbe body of Halstead, who fell dead. On examination it par discovered that the niece cad been loaded with onckehot. The ciicumstancc «mb atir.lmted to accident, and was speedily forgotten. Not long after tbe “accldunt” at bt. Paul an ar* tide appeared in the InUUige»eer . published at Lincoln, Illinois, in which iiawkes was charged with having deliberately planned the killing of his wire in order lo secure the SII,OOO for which her life was insured. Dawkea threatened tbe ed i or with a libel suit, bur for some reason, prob ably because he feared too strict an inquiry into the facte, he sever carried the prosecution iolo tilcct. The detectives succeeded ie collediug each In foimailon regarding the affair as to warrant the ones of Hswkcs, noon a requisition from Gov ernor Marehsal I. of Minnesota.-to the Governor of Illinois. On Friday foremen Fherifl" Robertson, of Ramsey County, .Minn., arrived in this dry with the requisition, which was placed lo the hands of the Sheriff of Cook County. In company with Sheriff Robertson and one of Mr. Turtle's detec tive stall; Deputy Sheriff Lorgley proceeded to tue residence of llawkes, at No. 102 Wells street, and tookbtm into custody. Eawtcs submitted to the arreslwitUoul a nmrnmr, merely remarking that he bad expected it for some rime. He was lodged in the County Jail, and oo Saturday murnuig be departed in company with sheriff Robertson for St. Paul. THE DOUGLAS BRICK UXACXUNB, A Wonderful Invention—lts Work. Ever since Chicago was a city, her people have hccu crying onl against the great cost and poor quality of the hricke furnished here for hnllding purposes, and large quantities of lumber have need, and thousands of wooden bulldogs erected on account of this lack. A good and cheap brick la a deeidem'om in this city, whose Impor tance can scarcely he estimated. lUiUJ MM Much of time and Ingenuity has been expended In the altemot to provide a remedy. Machinery has been invented; aud laid aside for the reason that tt would not make good bricks, and was eter nally being clogged op b» the tenacious> clay. A macblre has recently been finished which supplies all that was desired, and obviates all the disadvantages complained of, taking the roogh day from the bank, ard .nthottt the rempenng re quired lor hand work, putting It through into bricks at the nto of about 7,500 per hoar. all bard, fliy, compact, aao ready to put into the kilo at once, without being subjected to the tedious process ol aun drying, which Is also liable to be interfered with by bad weather. The machine to which we refer is the patent of Mr. Douglas. It Isnow in position on th-s south side of Illinois street, one door east of Franklin, and -will remain there for a few days, where par lies interested In the great question of good and cheap bricks may sec it In operation, and judge lor thimfelves as to Its merits. A lew gentlemen invited to witness Its opera tions on Friday afternoon, among whom was our reporter, found themselves well repaid for their journey through the excessively disagreeable storm. They saw the machine working, and turning out bricks rapidly, and of a quality which hail probably never been seen in this city before. The machine is a ponderous one. It weighs some twenty-two tons, and makes sixteen bricks at a time. The crude clay Is shoveled into a hop ner whence it passes between two huge rollers which break up the little lime stones which cause so much trouble m ordinary bricks, and give a homogenous mass. Thence It descends into an iron frame which is pushed over the moulds and is then withdrawn, leaving them full. A set of plungers now descends, and after their weight is exhausted they are soli fur ther nreeecd down by cams, pressing the day Into a compact, smooth brick, harder than many bricks are after they co ™ e ,°° l kiln. The bricks are poshed our of the moulds bv a flower set of plungers, and then the Iron fiance which brings more clay to the moulds, pushes the bricks out to'the platiorm, from which ifcev are taken direct to the kiln. This is the whole proces?, It simple, and is perfect. It la accomplished outy by the aid of ponderous machinery, but that works freely, and requires oultabout fifteen-horse power to turn out seventy-five thousand bricks otr day often hours. witboutoUier stoppage than that which may result from a failure to supply dav fasi enough to satisfy its rapacious maw. The great advantage of Ihla machine is its capa city for working dry clay. It eaves the trouble of tempering, and ensures the machine from Clog ging. The clay used in Ibe trial maaeon Friday was barely damp, while U was forced into bricks so dense that they weighed nearly twice as much as the ordinary bnck, and bore the great test ol iMtnir thrown up to the celling, and then allowed to fall on the Door, without fracture. Adjacent to the machine la a kiln where bricks SJgJiJ, tb« Doulu patent h.Vo bM> b.riiM.

Petrie in Court—Softs, Contempts, and Appeals—The Wife Obtains a - Divorce in Indiana. ■ A pelitidfi wUoh Saturday filed ‘la tho Circuit Court, on the pirt of Henry Petrie, the defendant, in a divorce case. In which Martha A- Petrie, is the complainant, asking that an order requiring him to pay alimony, be rescinded- There are In this case, if the petition be true, In connection wlih the collateral proceedings, several points of Interest, and some which , are worthy of earnest" consideration. The divorce case was commenced In the Snpo- Court on the 26th day of February. 1865, and on theSlst day ot the following month an order was made by Judge the defendant to pay a temporary altmonv of SSO on the S-fth day of that then present month, and SSO on the 3d of Apiil. This amount Petrie declined to, or did rot, pay, and on the s:th day of March be was arrested for contcmptoi court. He remained in the County Jail until the isth of April, when he sued out a writ of habratcorput, which was hewd before Judge Gory and decided adversely to uia petition, winch was based npon tho ground of the want of jurisdiction of the coart to decree the ali mony parting the result-of the proceeding in chancery. Mr. Petrie being remanded to jail, ap pealed from this decision. The ease was argued at (be last term of the Suprem*Conrt of this Grand Division, and the decision of court below was affirmed. Tho opinion of the coart having been filed the defendant Petrie, sow presents this pe tition to relieve himself from the liability of Im mediate arrest lor continned contemns and the matter comes np In the Circuit Conn by reason of a change otrenue. The petitioner alleges thathe is aixty-lonryears of age, and unemployed, being a resident with hla tanillr, upon whose care and support he is forced to rely for . the .means of livelihood. He stales further that the complainant has, etoershe filed her bill, gone to tho adjoining State of Indiana, and by some means procured a so-called decree of divorce from him, he Having no notice or knowledge of her proceeding, and, as he believes, npon false charges, and in an Illegal manner. it w lithe remembered tbalthisisa case with two. heads. It Involves a cross bill and an ac tion for crlm. con. against one A. Ondson Hltrrlns, who, in the cross MU and In the proceeding at common law. Is charged with being a paramour of Martha A. Petrie. This latter case has oeen sent, by change of venue, to Will County, where it stands for trial npon the docket. Muchof*he evidence in the case has been taken and some of It has been published in these columns. FALSE FUILOSOFHV, Perpctnoi motion and Artcolan Well*. There arc some men to whom science Is a great bore—bigger than the Artesian Well. It Is a nightmare, perpetually recurring. They think over certain phenomena, and, without rule or reason. Jump at certain conclusions, nut tronbling themselves to consider whether or not their men tal wanderings be in the direction of known troths or in the well-defined paths of error. These people are generally mechanical enthu siasts, and very few of them have omitted to tarn their attention to tbe subject of perpetual motion, while most of them claim to have solved tbe problem. They are the present-day successors of tbe alchemists ot tho olden time, who passed their lives in a hopeless search for the philosopher’s elone and the bags of Plato. There arc certain principles of motion which arc known as accurately, and are as infallible, as the geometric axlomata. One is that a Dody once eel in motion must continue to move lorward lor ever ut the same rate, unless its motion be tnt r'ered '.nth. Another la that Trie- noi'aivait-, ami'He force of gravity generally, ini<Tposcsto destroy motion, ibe inventors of the perpetual motion recognize the first, and ig nore tbe second. They tax their bruins to con struct elaborate mecbacisms whose movements shall be self-sustaining, forgetting that every computation but Increases the trlcuon and ac celerates the stand-still. Tbe kind of movement uhich mil ran the longest without extraneous aid is the one wt ere gravity does not Interfere (u pre vent, and frictionis reouccd to a minimum—as, f«r iustauce, tnc f winging of a dell a'ely suspend ed pendulum in an exhausted receiver. (julle recently an old shape ol tbe perpetual motion theory has been revived. It has pecu at tempted lo prove that a stationary Weight can cause motion; that is, (hat a train ot wheel work can be operated by the mere pressure of a weight without a motlcu on us tart. Ot course If lh»a were possible pel petaal'motion would be a fixed fact. The advpcatc* of such a phantasy forget that an effect cannot be greitcr than its canse, ai d can only seem to be so •'heu we regard tbe t tied of more than one cause as being doe to only one. That is, the caused motion cannot bo greater than the causing motion, or- li there bean inequality u. space or time, then it is exactly couiitcrbalacced, by a corresponding inequality in power.

We have received two or three (cetera recently from a correspondent who seems to nave got Into a mndole about the balance of power. He writes ieanedly abont Artesian wells, acd tho reason why the water in them ihea above the surface of the earth. He baa evidently got an Idea—or a piece of an idea—and wishes ns to give it ou bllcr tty. The same fragment of aa Idea has been out by him into two or three dltlcrent scapes. We give the last lorm, correcting only the bad spel ling He tays: “ What elevation, height or level is the water of the earth In obedience to the law that loads Is downvaids? All rqattcr tends It* weiebt to tbe centre cf the earili, and fluids Claris themselves according to weight.

A Destructive foundation at Wil- v ningtss, lUissis. Howes and Bridges Carried Away and the Town Submerged. Bnppsmd hom of Life. The Freshet in the Illinois and Fox Eivers, Ravages of tbe Flood in Other States. Apprehensions of a Freshet in the Chicago River. TBE IX - OOBS DT THE CITY. The thaw am. 1 the rain have comhlnedly produced a ffremtt‘ r flood In Chicago than at any time since tfci° year 1849, when every bridge was carried the immense freshet which'swept* -everything: before it. Nearly a foot of snow .laid npon tho ground when tbe rain commenced to fall on Tlmra day, and thawed it out n 'hUe the ground re malned frozen. The con* eqnence was that scarcely any of the motetm’"® was disposed of by soakage, and lay like a U*»he on the sur face oi the great undrained aof the city, and flowing off very slowly towards the river. The more central port km. i of the city, being sewered, remained* compass, 'tively dry, and the sun and wind of Saturday carried off every drop of moisture from map) * exposed pjfchcs, both of sidewalk und strest. • The slow moving current of the Chicago River was early augmentcd r the lop being broken up and floated out, Its waters gx ally rising above tho normal level tifr* 00 Saturday morning they reached’ their grey est altitude, being in the centra? portion o. f tbe city within abbut one foot of the doefc line, with a current of four or five miles per hour. Higher np tbe Southßraoch tb« snrfacw was even more elevated, but scarcely reached the dock line. Some fears were entertained of a flood bursting in from the Anx Plaines, but the expectation was not generally re garded os well founded and no one anticipat ed more than tbe flooding of one or two cel lars in any part of the city. But for two or three days tbe denizens of soathwestern Chicago hare realized the unwelcome fact that a great and serious over flow has encompassed them. To understand the cause and extent of the flood tho geography of the southwestern portion of tho city must bo kept In mind- The South Branch of the Chicago River runs nearly duo north to the intersection of Reu ben street and a line formed by tbe prolon gation cf Twenty-seventh street, where it turns to the northeast. At this point the Illinois and Michigan Canal enters it from the southwest, and here aic the locks ; while the Anx Plaines River enters a little shove, niDutag also from tho soatluvest,. nearly parallel to the canal, but a quarter of a mile distant. The country around here, and for a long distance west and north, is very low, and the surface of the water In ordinary times Is bat little below the banks. At this intersection the Ice, broken up by the thaw, began on Thursday night to accumulate against the bridges, great cake* two feet thick being continually heaped up,, until they reached the height of six or eight feet, and forming an effectual barrier to the rush ing currents, of course set the water back and spread it out over the adjacent flats. South of the main river and tbe canal the rise Is evident mainly in tbe cellars and on tbe floors of some of the houses lying In- low spots. There is no appearance of a general overflow, such as Is seen on tbe North Side. Highly exaggerated reports were circulat ed yesterday regarding tho extent of the flood, conveying the Impression that nearly one-half of the city was under water, and that thousands of people were washed clean out of their homes. A visit to the south western portion of tbe city, which has suf fered most heavily by the inundation, trill convince anyone that this picture of the disaster is somewhat Imaginative. It would be easy to describe a world of waters wide and deep with such impro-slvo touches aa “for as the eye could reach,” Ac., yet such a description would be away beyond the actual truth. Contrary to the general impression which prevailed yesterday. Bridircoort U not auotoorpcil, tbe water* in that portion of Chicago having not tlsca above tbe cellars. Passing along the Archer road one sees indeed very little of the flood, and except in tbe lower grounds, tb« inhabitants there bavo no cause, as yet, foi any serious alarm. It is further towards tbe southwestern limits and be yond that point that the inundation assumes tbs greatest magnitude. There is a piece ol rUing ground situated at tbe southwestern limits on Western avenue where the canal crosses, from which a tolerably comprehensive view of the flood may be obtained. Tho scene from this point is truly impresslvs. Looking towards tbe north as for as Union Park we sec Lotblng but a dreary waste of waters dotted all over with shanties from which the inmates ore moving by meant of wagons and boats. The dneks end geeso seem to have a glorious time of it. To them tho flood is a roillenlum, their little world being suddenly converted into a limitless duck ponc>, whll* the necessaries of life are sup plied to them by their proprietors. On the other band the pigs and hens have realized the fact that their prospects of salvation are anything but cheering. The Washingtonian Home Is the first point which strikes the eye from this eminence. It looms above the water? level like some huge ark oi safety, while all between is in a state of submersion. Tbe small dwellings appear os if they were tossing about like floating buoys, all trace of tbe streets being com pletely Closed. Away towards the west from the city limits, and also in the direction of the Brighton House, a similar expansion of water is seen till the view is closed in by a rising ridge, beyond which it is said tho flood extends to a great extent. The inmates of the dwellings in the vlcin- ity of which we speak, did not become much alarmed till the waters rose above tho floors, when a general skedaddle took place, some moving in the direction of Bridgeport, and to the localities which were less liable to be submerged. A large house in the vicinity of the canal bridge became the asylum for several fami lies who bad been driven out of their little dwellings in the lower ground. About a score or so of children and an infinite num ber of men and women were congregated together, while the neighbors did everything In their power to supply them with comforts. A great deal of damage bos been sustained by the packing and rendering bouses along that section of tbe river between Ilalstcd and Reuben streets. The cellars arc all over flowed, and the waters were rising yesterday above the first floor, causing serious damage to large quantities of bacon. At the rolling mills, near the glue factory, the men were obliged to discontinue their work on Friday, the flood having completely obstructed their operations. The Union Stock Yards have been sub merged to tbe depth of three feet, while in some places the water is much deeper. The Hougn House was flooded up to the first floor, and all the fires in the basement being quenched, the guests had bat a cold pros pect before tbem. THE ItHIDGBS. Western avenue, which forms tho boun dary of the city on the west, crosses the Aux Plaines River about three-quarters of a mile north of the Brighton House, on what was called the “Mud Lake bridge.” There Is much travel here, and a toll-gate was formerly kept. This bridge was swept en tirely away on Friday nigbt, and tbe toll house stands In the centre of a rushing stream, entirely impassable. About half a mile cast over tbe same river is tbe Bine Is land avenue bridge, at the point where that tboroughlare approaches tho stream. This, though standing, is rendered unsafe for pas sage, and surrounded by water; and it may yet yield to the current. The HaUted street bridge, and tbe other bridges In the vicinity, are believed to be uninjured, but the approaches to them are not inviting. THE RAILROADS. The Chicago & St. liOais and Great East ern Roads run along the Little Aux Plaines, which has caused most of their trouble, bat the former is uninjured and trains run os usual. Near the “Mud Lake bridge” a cul vert in the Great Eastern ts so "undermined as to be unsafe, and passage is suspended. Yesterday morning an engine came from each direction to this point, hut dared not venture over, and so signalled and retreated. Men arc encaged In repairing, and the break will probably be but temporary. Wo do not bear of any obstruction to other roads. 2VARROW ESCAPE. On Saturday evening a Geiman drove through the surrounding water to the loca tion of the Mud Lake bridge and attempted to cross. But tho structure, unknown to him. had been swept away, and instead of finding Hin Us usual position though under water, as he expected, he found fils team Suddenly struggling in the hurrying stream. Ho jumped out up to his neck In water, and calling loudly for assistance obtained tho help of a few good Samaritans so that the ‘horses were finally cut loose, when they struggled to tho shore and ran off. The wagon was tied up so that it could not be floated away and left with Its load, the men making the best of their way out. The poor German was so chill ed through by the icy water, that after get ting to the Brighton House he was token sick and now lies there unable to go home. Two or three cowa are said to have been drown cd and very likely a number of unfortunate Bigs and hens will meet the same fate, but there has been no loss of human life. Many a poor man. however. Is considerably poorer from the effect of this great outpouring. THE GENERAL ASPECT. The quantity of water lying on the surface in our city on Friday, due to the thaw and the ra»n where It fell, was very great. In about one-half of the city, embracing about twelve Motions, it averaged probably about ttots lying along the Ink* akoro, the rirer bonka, and on those streets wklch hare been raised and drained. South of Twenty-eecond ■ tract. the South Division presented to the aja a waate of water, ex fPt where the monotony was broken br boose* and fences, some of the streets etea being* submerged. la the West Division, all west of about a q outer of a mile feom the rirer was under water, except the strip enclosed br-Monroe and Klnxfe streets, which Is eaaeraUT'weU drained, ibis being, wldenedto Van-Baran east of Hals ted, and narrowed to Lake, want ofßenben.- On the North Side the same general .feature* were , presented,'thoughtbe depth'Of water was generally less. Oa Sunday tha quantity was. about the aaae, but tbe volume wa*less-equally dis tributed. It had drained off and dried from all orcr the city, bat where the waters of the AaxPlaines had reached that diminu tion was more than compensated for. The inradtaff flood bad spread eastward in the SanthDlvTsion, corering the. twd west ern sections in the tier couth of Bridgeport to the depth of abont a foot, including the Hough House and the Union StockTarda. Northwardly it had incroached on the western tier of sections, with a- depth vary ing from a foot at the canal 1o sir Inches at Madison street, ana stretching up with a rather thinner-layer much farther north. Tbe quantity of water now lying on tbe surface of the ground In onr city is probably abont seventeen millions of cable feet, or 530,000 tons; TEE FLOODS ELSEWHEBE. . UilnoU. GREAT FLOOD AT WILMINGTON. On Friday evening the combined causes of thaw and rain bad their visible effect npou tbo Kankakee River at Wilming ton. The fact that the bridge at that point, heretofore considered one of, if cot, the most substantial bridges upon that road, was down, was, during the even ing, communicated to tbo company, and through them, this morning, to tbe press. The company, In a brief notke, informed the public that, on account of the loss of an im portant bridge on its line, no through trains would leave this city for Springfield and St. Louis until farther notice. The location of the accident was denoted by the further statement that the Wilmington train would run os usual. It was then too late to obtala lull particulars of the casualty, and, os we now.dlscovcr, the confusion in the town was too great to allow of that condition of mind which favors the circulation of facts In connection with general losses of valuable property. < The extent ot the Injury done wo hare now been enabled to learn. Tbo bridge over the Kankakee River is destroyed. Thai over Forked Creek in Stewart’s Addition la a thing of the past, and the trestle bridge overProlrie Creek no longercxists. Wilming ton Is an isolated town, audits inhabitants arc enjoying solemn purgation in the upper stories ol their bouses. At about five o’clock, or perhaps nearer on to sis, the waters of the Kankakee River, which bad been threatening to overflow their banks along all Its length, augmented their force at Wilmington. The ice which had accumulated, rose in its might I. and broke by reason of the greater I■) rcipht of the waters, and being choked i flow, the stream commenced to 'SW.cII. The sudden rise of water and ice 1 viewed with dismay and fear by the ,rrvyi. ous and not altogether unprepared peo pie. Their preparation, however, suc cumb**. *1 to their apprehension, and os the torrent, roared and rushed madly by a panic 6ci«d U ’em. Thundering along In a sullen fury the ’.water, swollen bevond the banks, sweptarva v the railroad bridge. This was a Howe tru.upon abutments of solid, masonry. The road bridge, above that of the railway comnanv, had just bofiw o been completely demoUshc'd, and the way e. toss Forked Creek, in Stew, art’ffuddition f>lhe city, was also destroy ed. The pcoph" in the eastern part of the city were now c ul off from their neighbors oftherwest. Th« v were terror-struck, wan dering about seek ing the road'to safety for thenuelvcs. Tlielnihabltantsofthelow land rushed into the c populous parts of the city, and a scene ot wild confusion was ci- hibited. - , , . The river continued its rise. Daring some moments the water ro so as much as a foot per minute, overflowing’ Iho banks and seek ing levels in the stores Aind dwellings of the inhabitants.- The angry flood aeon .found further prey, it battered agflinef, ana’ entered Aldens’ warehouse,.and that is now entirely ruined. A few portions of its walls remain erect, but they, as those parts- that were swept away, were destroyed. The mills o.f Messrs. Fisher •fc Co. are aloo ruined’ beyond redemption ; and the brick brewery adjacent to the river and below the railroad bridge, owned by Mr. Allen and rented to Mtvsrs. Belts & Co., shared, if not so extreme a fate, a Toss which can only be estimated br a bill of re pairs, which will probably amovnt to two thirds of the vjlne of the property. The scene in and around tbe town is oni of great confusion. Small buildiugw, articles of furniture, barrels- and packages, ice and lumber, shop fixtures and outhouses have been washed to spots far from the location of their former utility, and thev have been rendered useless by the dampening process, where* there Is In some places a deeper water bed, these ar ticles float about in inextricable disorder. Everywhere cellars are flooded and even the basement of tbe principal hotel, the Sherman HoupC, is inundated- Away off from the city, on ’Aldens’ Island, two families are suf- ; fering. Resident upon the island they are cut off from communication with any of tbe to them outer world, ami the torrent was so great that when our Informant left, no one on the main land dared, nor did they care to venture to open a com munication by boats. During the night the Methodist and Presbyterian meet ing houses were filled with families whose 'vaidcncca were so- suddenly removed or flooded, and tne onuses which, by reason of their higher location, were in some sort of r-alety. were crowded, by those whoso houses were in let* favorable condition. The height of the water may be judged by the statement that Water and Main streets, us also the intersecting thoroughfares, are now impassable for teams, and on tbo surface of the water, which renders thcm.unaafeandiacoovouicntfor pas sage, there are floating large cakes of tco, varying in thickness from six to twenty indies, and of such ice there are perhaps over two hundred acres in and around the city, tbe largest Odd lying-just below the railroad station house, of no estimated area ofone hundred acres. Besides this, the force i-flbe water carried cakes of ice into pyr amids, which rest now in the city. Five men, whose names we were unable as yet vo learn, are at present missing. It Is much feared that they have gone dawn with the current, to their death. Tbo loss of property is variously estimated. It cannot tall short of $2.50.000, and perhaps the result <>f the destruction will not be covered by the addition of another hundred thousand. The regular train fiora Wilmington was delayed by the almost total destruction of creek bridge, north of Wilmington. The passengers were fetched up .from Hampton to which place they walkep, by the Paymas ter's car and In that car they camo Into- the city lost evening. at quinct. [Special Despatch to tbs Chicago Tribune.] Qcixcr, 111., February 16. The ice in the river broke up last evening. This morning tbe channel is clear. The Held ol ice came dowu with irresistible force. The stern wheel steamer Imperial, lying at the mouth of the bay, was struck on tbe side by the ice amidships, stove in and [.•reed ashore. Damage about one thousand dollars. The steamer Molllc McPiko arrived from Cincinnati landing this morning. The Kale Kearney is expected to arrive to-mor row fiom St. Louis. There will be no further interruption of navigation to this point, it is thought, this winter. AT MORRIS. (Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.] Morris, 111., February 16. Tbe Illinois River is said to be higher than at any time for thirty years. It is within three feet of the wood work of the bridge, and continually rising. It has risen over the inclined plane of the piers and the full force of the Helds of ice come against tbe square top. It has already taken out a uumbur of stones from the middle pier. The Ice is gorged about five miles up the river, entirely across it, and fifteen to twentv feet thick. A large bridge and an immense quan tity of lumber and parts of houses have lloat cd against the west bank. One field of Ice this morning came against a solid stone wail which wasinc basement to a dwelling house, and went through tbo wall as though It was paper. The wind has blown furiously up the river all day, checking greatly the force of the floating ice. AT CAIRO. Cairo, February 16.—The terrible and in* cessant rain-storm of the post three dojs coded lust night. At midnight it was almost clear and turning cool. It is entirely clear this morning, the mercury standing at fifty. The Mobile & Ohio Railroad Is Inundated by the Obion River, and trains have stopped running. The Illinois Central Railroad is also under water near Ulm, some twenty miles above hero. For about three-quarters of a mile trains have to run through near three feet of water, which puts out the fire In the engine. The northward bound train left some hours behind time, so as to have daylight to run through tho water. The train from the north, duo here at 5 o'clock in the morning, did not arrive until 9 o’clock. The river bos been rising steadily and rapidly for several days. The rise {since the Ist instant amounts to nearly thirty feet. It is believed the city is safe from overflow, as the river is yet several feet below the high-water mark of 1863. and the levee has been raised two feel since then. A large quantity of water lias accumu lated inside of tbc levee from the rise, which cannot run out, as the sewers have been closed to previous Ingress of the water from the river. The accumulation of water Is being thrown ont by the big steam pnmp at the foot of Tenth street, at the rate of one thousand barrels per raVonto, Cairo, February 16.—The Ohio River Is over the track of the Mobile and Ohio Rail road, and trains have stopped since running. The Illinois Central is also inundated above Alton, and trains run through water ol suffi cient depth to extinguish the Area la tho lo comotives. AT CALXTMBT. '[Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.] Calumet, February.l(3—Midnight. The track of the Michigan Central Rail road at the Little Columefc Hirer, about thirty miles from Chicago, is quite sab merged, the water,at midnight,for a quarter of a mile, being nearly up to the bodies of the cars, and reported still rising. The trains are obliged to run Tory slowly, feeling their way along cautiously, lest drift wood might have floated upon the track, or the water hare dissolved the frost and loosened the sand underlying the track. Men are en gaged in watching through tho night, and have kindled fires by which to keep them selves warm*. If It should freeze hard to

It Is not as high as it was on Thmsday, when the ice broke up. The heavy rain storm of yesterday has raised the creeks in this vicinity to a very high stage, and considerable damage has been done by carrying off the fences, small bridges and Calverts. Tbo wagon bridge across the Illinois River at LaSalle was carried off bodi ly by the ice. The damage done to the Illinois River bridge in this city will bo repaired by this afternoon so that teams can again cross. The Ice is still running a little. ATPBKIN.

Bridges on the Dubuque & Sioux City, and Dubuque & Southwestern Railroads all safe. The Mississippi river at this point has risen some one and a half to two feet over the lee. Crossing with teams is, however, kept up by using bridges to get from the land on the ice. Weather clear and pleasant. nUssonrL [Special Despatch to the Chicago Tdbane.j St. Louis, February 10. The river rose ten feet up to midnight, aod large quantities of grain were damaged by the rising waters. The ice in the Missouri has generally broken up, and the river Is supposed to bo open to Omaha. Reports from abovo Indicate a heavy rise, and there is now an abundance of water everywhere. The Kate llart has come from the White Cloud wreck. She reports the steamer’s cargo nearly a total loss. Kansas Citt, Mo., February Iff,—Two spans of the wagon bridge across tbe Kaw River, at Wyandotte, was swept away by the flood this afternoon. The bridge wai creeled lasi fall, at a cost of $70,000, and, it is feared, will be a total loss. The Missouri River, at this point, has risen rapidly this evening, and work on the piers of the Cameron Railroad bridge bos ceased' on account of high water. The Flood In the Cuyahoga River. [Frnm the Cleveland Letder, February 15.1 The Cuyahoga River rose rapidly yester day. and during the day the ice gave way above the city. II still remained lost, how ever, below Col a ratals street, and the huge masses piled up, a short distance above the bridge, forming arv Immense corge, al most completely damming' the river. This caused' au inundation of the cn- tire flats to a depth of several feet, and much anxiety woo felt for property liable to be owept away, or dam aged by water. Lmnber'plles were anchored down ; vessels were secured by additional brewsersand -ilinlDß, and every possible pre caution was token tb prevent disaster. At dark last evening matters remained in statu gwo, except that the water was con stantly rising upon tbe flats, on account of the gorge. Below the Lighthouse street bridge the river bad been clear for s day or two, thclcc having broken up and passed into the lake, but’bewecn that point and the Columbus street bridge U remained intact,.tbweeh exhibiting many-symptoms of approaching dissolution. At all . th*- hiidgcs. .men j-inccn ■ on - auty for the. night, to keep a careful lookout, and to -be ready to open them If any vessels should-be? forced from their moorings and-borne down l the stream. Watchmen were also-placed' upon all the steamere and many of the sail*, vessel* lying in the river, to give the alarm in case ofdangcr Shortly before- midnight the flood rose to such a height above ibo gorge that tbe Northern Ohio- Iron Mill was obliged to-stop'work, the ground floor of tho building being entirely inundated. Matters began to assume a so* rioua aspect, as it was evident that unless ti’.e ice gave way below and allowed the water to flow off, very serious loss of prop erty could not be avoided.
