Iu the lower section of the city, especially drove and Erie streets, the labor <u appraisement Is more tedious ind the damage comparatively light. The total amount n tho Second precinct will be about $3 500. Many frivolous claims are presented, and charge.- tiro made lor all Ruris of glassware, from a kerosene lamp up to a nrge square of plutu glass. O'Sullivun's building, at .he comer of Twelfth and Grovo streets, wna damaged to the extent of $.'*>0; Mr. John Brady's build ing, $75; Carr's drUii store, $50; l'srk House, $100; ex-Freeholder O'Grady's store, $300; Mr. Jacob Warner's saloon, $300; Mr. Patrick Cro. niu's store, JlO'j; Freeholder Mcl'hillips' store. $100; public school, $50; umbrella factory. $200; Sheriff Lavorty's house, $300; St. Nicholas church, $300; Mr. Robert O'Ueime, $100; Mr. T, J. McDonald, $Sjo, Krio Railway paint shop, $300; Mr. Casey, $200, und many others. These buildings are situated a long distance Irom the scene of the explosion. The minor eases aro too numerous for publication. K very house an thu block irom Fourteenth to Fifteenth street, on the east side of Grove street, was more or less shut tered. TIIK LI(18TB KXTIXOUISllKD. Mr. Carr was standing iu his drug store, at the corner of Kikhth street, when the shock came. Tho lights were extinguished, and thu large plate glass In thu windows shattered. Half a dozen drug bottles tumbled Irom the shelves, one of them striking lutu above tlio inkle. In his consternation he cried out, "My God, I'm shot!" Tho injury inflicted wus very trivial, how ?ver. People were so stupeiied, even at tins long ills tauce, that they could not comprehend the nature of Ihc disaster lor a loug time. A woman ascending tho ?lairs In a tenement house was momentarily para ^ zed, and Imamucd that the Ico box had tumbled from the upper hallway. How the liouso of Mr. Abraham Collerd. w hich stands on the slope of the hill In an almost direct liue with and contiguous to tho magasiuti, escaped complete demolition is ono of tho Inexplicable Ickturcs of tho catastrophe. The marblo mantels are torn Irom the wails, but the Iramowork of the building, which Is of recent construction, rlung together tiruilv. the house ol Mr. Michael Maguirc, at the corner of'l'alisadv avenue and Prospect street, is literally disjointed. Ihu sides of the peaked root have parted company, and the sunlight beauis in on the upper lloor through a chink Irom one lo two Inches in width. Tlio staircase was torn away Irom tho wall to the width of two inches, makiug it perilous to ascend. The iramo work ol the building wus lifted Irom ihc bclck louuda tion and settled down again two luetics out of place. The bed In which Mr. Mugulre wits lyIns was plrfcrd close to the window, wlicu a storiu ol' bricks, dust and glass swept across It. Mrs. Mugulre received a sevi re cut on the top of tho head. Many other houses have yielded Irom the perpendicular. ACTION OK TMK AUTIIOKITIKX. Meanwhile the c.ty authorities are moving with com mendable promptness Mayor Sle-ller is in frequent consultation with Chief of Police Cliampney. The au thorities are puzzled as to the question ol liability lor the damage. Lawyers differ on the question whether the injured property owners cau recover damages from the city or Irom ttie contractor. Mr. McAndrew. Tho Fire Com in 1-lone ts held a meeting yesterday morning and disbursed the subject at great length. It was urged that if the contractor, after receiving permission irum the Fire Commissioners to store the explosive compound, violated any oi tlic conditions under which such |>crmlsslou wus granted, he is wlioliy liable lor any damage thai infill result Irom an explosion, llie grueral ruling of the Supreme Court of tlio Stato has been thai where statutory oflloet* aci within the scope ol the power delegated to thctn by the Legislature llie city cniiuot lie bel>l responsible in a cine like tho | present. Power* delegated by statute cannot be used to imperil the lives and pro|ierty ol the public. If the city be not responsible, then the question arises, IS r.

THE ELEVATOH ACCIDENT. A large number of people visitod the scene of tbo elevator catastrophe at the loot ol Ferry strcot, Hobo ken, yesterday, but all signs of the accident had dis appeared and the cars w ere running as usual As to the cause df the accident thero is a <|UtsUon of veracity beivveon William Sponcc, the "truckman" at the root of the elevator, who denies that he gave the signal lo start tho car up tho elevator, and John Do Uovoise, tho engineer at tho top of tlio elevator, who maintains that the electric bell rang in his olhco lor bun to start it. S|ieiicc says that tho Jarring of the car ruunlng on the wooden platform may have started tbe electric bat tery aud given the signal to start. Tbo matter is being Investigated by Mr. .1 jhu H. Uoun, President ol tbo Hudson County ltailroad. a number ol pontile aro airaid to iravel on tho railroad. Mr. llonn stalest how ever, lliat measures have been taken to prevent a repe tition ol the accident. Hopes areentertained that Mm 'l'homas Mickea.-, may recover, but bur condition is still very critical. i'iie deluiis given tn yesterday's Hknald of tho cataslr. phu leave but little additional to be said on the subject. Reports were circulated daring yesterday that some of the victims had died from their Injuries, "but they proved on investigation to be incorrect. Dr. Stout, County Physician oi Hudson county paid sev eral visits to tho Charity Hospital at Jersey City to attend Mr. Julius Helta, ol No. Uri Washington street, who remains iu a very critical condition. The major ity ol tho victims are improving. "Mrs. Catharine Hastings, ol No. 5W l'allsade avenue, 1 Jersey City, Ib iu a slightly unproved coudltton, but at Mines alio is dolirious. She wo* thrown out of tho middle ol tho car, throueh the rear door, against the dashboard. Frank (iehring, of No. 1<>B New York ave nue, who hud several ribs broken, was slightly easier yesterday, and it Is hoped may recover. Mrs. Dunn, ot l'alisauo avenue, not previously reported, is slightly injured WHAT TUB SUPBItnrrKtt&BKT 8AV8. i A Hkhalu reporter called on Mr. Ooeijt, the superln 1 tended ot ihe Norm Hudson Railroad Company, yes | icrday, to inquire about the elevator disaster of tlio previous evening. Mr. (loetz said he bad looked into (lie uccident, and did not think It had been caused by uny one desirous of "gelling square" with the com pony for injuries real or imaginary. Before the cur was fairly on tbe truck the engineer heard a signal and started the olevalor. Immediately the car com menced to slide backwards, and tlio horses, looting tho , strain, pulled against it, but without avail. The car tell into the pit, pulling tho horses with It. It Is not known how ihe signal was given to start the elevator, 1 ami the truckman In charge denies that ho struck the belt. If it wore not 'or ilie strain tho horses put upon i the traces when they lelt the car descending the acci dent would doubtless havu proved much more dis astrous. A singular circumstance in connection wltb the lull of tho car into the pit. which Is about sixteen feet deep, wns that not n single pano of glass in any of the windows was broken. Tho roar platlorm ouly was smashed and tho bonnet overhead, covering tbo driver. None of tho injured passengers had died up to tbo time the writer talked with Mr. Uootz. THE 4'MIKADO'S EMPIRE." HISTOBY OF JAPAN BY AN AMERICAN?THE CL'BXOMH, BKLIUION8, L1TKBAXUJU AND GAMES OP THE PEOPLE. Tbo Messrs.

Tbo author, Mr. <M". E Qriflls, now of New York, bad an abuudant opportunity of ! windy iuif llie Japanese, their manners, customs and re ligions, as also of visiting famous places but seldom 1 reached by foreigners. He was enabled to do this be eause of his position as teacher In tbe Government ?

In December, 1S70, when he at once proceeded to ; Fukni, and there remained until September, 1871. At 1 that time tbo feudal system was abolished and ; tbo governmoDt centralized at Tokio, in the ' person ol tbe Mikadn. Tho 1'rioco ot Kchixen was coinpoiled to resign his pojvor, and retire to private life, when ihu auliior, upon the invltu .

Al every opportunity during tins lime ho visited adjacent province* to studv the people, and inspected famous shrines, temple*, bai lletioids, oastles, anil tbe tnauy classic spots made tnein orable by Japanese history, the story ol which trips are , ; told in an exceedingly pleasant manner. While Mr. tirtllis gave particular attention to everything that be I thought would interest an American regarding the ! mind, temper and uaturu of ihu Japanese, .t seems ' that lie did not overlook the sports and amuscroc-niH ot i tbo |>eoplo. He rotors bo.ti to the indoor ami outdoor games ou repeatedly saw played, ot iho latter beiug polo, railed "dak u'' in Japanese, wnich is very ancient in that land and extremely popular. He <U scrtbo* a game in l'tikut al which he was present, and as Ins de scription inay not bo uninteresting u is given, us under: ? "Among tho games played in public is 'dakiu' (polo), which is very ancient in Japan. Alt immense crowd of spectators, l'rinco, Princess, lords and ladies, gentle men, people, priests and students, gathered inside tbo riding course to see the gamo of 'dakiu' played. I had one of the best seals given me in the pavilion occupied by the daitnlo and tils gentlemen in waning. Everybody w?. dressed handsomely, the weather per iod, the so ue animating. Judges and scorers were in ceremonial dross. At the signal, given by a tap of u bell, twelve players mounted. Al the nexi they rode into the lists, salutod the 1'rlnce and Judgos, and pro ceeded to tbo end ol tho course, rauging themselves in ludt.ui tile, wnh tbeir horses' heads to Iho wickets, winch were two bamboo polos with a cord across them, about tot. ieel Irom the ground.

The leaders having reached Iho wickets, and a number of balls having been throw n over, and others I scattered over the Held, turned back '.o opposo each other, and then the game grew intensely exciting. It was shinny on horseback. Skilful handling ot tho horse, a* well as ol the crook, waa noicssary. Tbreo riders were dismounted. Occasionally a man was hurt, flic collision ot excited aulmals against each other was ;r. <|u>nt I lie balls llcw backward and forward, up and do.?n. Einilly, there was hut one ball toll.

Kditor or thk Hkkald:? 1 wish to lay before yo-ir readers the case of an educa ted lady, a native of England and ? communicant of the Kpltcopal Church, whoso misfortune* appeal for a public hearing. This lady has been at work In this city for tbe past eight years, and during that time has been a regu lar commnieant ol Trinity church, never missing a ser vice except in ca.<c ol sickness. In the early part of the winter her work gave oat and sbo was reduced to tbo point of starvation. In bcr extremity she went to tho Rev. Dr. Dlx, rector of Trinity church and stated her eaao. Kor six weeks nothing but dry bread bad passed her Hps, except when Invited to a friend's labia Pi. Dlx heard bor story and asked for her references, and told her to return, she gave as references some merchants in high stand ing uown town. A week or two afterward the lady culled agaiu on the rector, and he said "he really had not had time to investnjaio her case, he bad boeii so busy.'' The lady had relied on his help and was thus loll in a worse condit.011 lhau be ore. I)r. U:x said, moreover, that he did 1101 see how he could help her; j be could do nothing personally. He was then asked It he could not send Iter to some ladies of tbu church who would glv* her help. "Oh, no," be replied, "I oabtioi do that sort of thing." And so the comtnuui < ant of eight years' standing waa refused all help and even sympathy. By means 01 other friends snd help tbo lady strug- ' gled through the winter, someday* haviog a craat, at other times baying nothing. About two weeks ago she determined to givo public readiugs (having done this successfully betore), and wont to l>r. Dix again to secure his aid. Uo then mid he ceald not engage In tnat sort of work and reterrcd her to one ol his ' curates,'' Mr. Hitcbiuga, ol trinity church. Tho latter gentle man did nothing. l>r. Dix took two tickots, so did one ol his vestry men. Thie seemed to be all that tho parish could do. further assistance was absolutely re 1 used.

Tlio only grouud lor fesr is that other States, repeating the factious Ohio and Pendleton tactics of 1868 against Indiana aud Hendricks, will try and tempt New York to yield its support to the man who Is known to be first in the hoarts ol his democratic countrymen. But this game has been tried once too often to be tried again, and if Uovernor Seymour should be nominated at St. Uuls, in any real or flutcled exigency, he will promptly and sternly refuse to accept the nomination.

To nominate an honest man would demoralize the whole civil service. The Chicago Tributu says that Governor Hayes, while certain, perhaps, of Ohio and a fair chance in Indiana, with the moral advantage of taking both Stales at the October election, would have no strength but the straight party vote in all the rest of the Union, ho would be comparatively a stranger in New York, New Jerxey, New Bngiand and on tho Pacific coast.

The brotherhood Is probably the most power lul and Important trade association Id the Uulte< States. It comprises about 14,000 men* bers and Includes seven-eighths of the on. tiro cralt In this country and Canada. Iti executive power i. centred in a board of trustee, and In three salaried olllcers who are located at Cleveland, which will continue to be tho seat of government til) IMC. The purpoae of the organization is "to combine the Interests of locomotive engineers, to elevate thelf standing as such and their character as men. " No per. son Is admitted to membership unless he is a wbut man, twenty one years old, of good moral character, and has b?op at least a year uu engineer of good stand ing. To he accepted a candidate must be proposed by three engineers of the division he wishes to Join, and tliejr must certify to bis character. 1'tae constitution ol tho Brotherhood explicitly for bids its influence or sympathy being used in tavor of any i>olitical or religious organization whatever, and no political or religious discussion is permitted at any meeting. A member renders himself Ilablo to expul sion by getting intoxicated, or by engaging in the traffla of intoxicating liquors* The organization 1. a secroi one, with a ritual, and It supports a monthly Journal, in which suspensions and expulsions of members, with other matters or interest to the craft, arc noted. Connected with the organization la a co-operative mutual life insurance association, which makes a col lection upon the deatn of any member, and paya hi* family or heirs tho sum of $3,000. This feature has been In operation eight or nine years, and has during that time collected and dishursod about $1,000,000, Delegations of the Brotherhood were present at the Iccturo last night from Philadelphia, New York, Jersey City and other places equally distant. Tho subject of Mr. Beocher's lecture was education and religion. It ia, ho said, a mistake ta suppose because so much 1. said and so much more ia lelt la our day about education that it is a modem Invention. Siuce tho drst days of civilization education bad pre vailed. Education was the urt of giving a man wholly to himself: It had always beon deemed desirable bus In olden limes it was a prerogative accorded ouly to the favored classes. The education of the common peoplo wua condemned and even stigmatized as a crime. As civilization extended, however, educa "?" 8r?w With it, but still the thought ol edu cating the whole people was modem. After Napoleon ) ,0fi' ground the lilo out of Oeruiany Stein nf statesmen felt that it was necessary to' build ginning ?l the very foundation, by ?fllightening tho masse*; and the education of th? whole people in u practical form dated from thai period. 1 he dynasties (hut lormerly opposed the tdu catlun or the common people now are anxious to pro mote it, because they nee that educated subjects are oasior to manage, make better producers In tho indus trial arts and bettor soldiers for their armies than ignorant ones. Strange to say, now for the Urst urn* in the history of the world the men who most nwj education arc tho most anxious lor It, because ihey see alter ccntuncs of vain insurrection*, that brain and uoi muscle must rule by an Immutable Divine law It wo* the common schools of Germany that overclm'e Prance . . war* in our own oifil war the JhiJi?

Twenty-five years ami Mr Ti8UU1, ho I?*/1 ProPfie8ied that war umoug Chris tian nations would be seen no more. Since that time the flvo greatest and bloodiest wars in the history ol the human tanilly bad occurred. Me spoke of tha Immense standing armies waiting now iike liners ready to spring upon each other, and dwelt upon the onormous lo-s occasloued by their withdrawal from industry, .. well aa tho terrible burden their aupporl entails upon the productive class. One-lourtn ol rl? sal(1 ??nied Just enough to subsist upon. SLTrth.cr^a.n!! '1rne<1 n,,lh,B8. ?><? ??>? remaining one! half supported thamaelves and the second class and bad a surplusage. Tho speaker reiorred to the in. duatrloiis character of the people among whom his boy hood was passed, where even the child or six waa obliged to perform some labor, and while he would not . ! spinning wheel or abolish the reUned employment* of our inoilcrn belles he would have them also learr something useful, and so would plact r!y *,^',T0 wanl b>" "? own productive in dustrj. The fallacy thai the price of an article de. pends upon tho cost of its production was touched upon, aud it was clearly shown that the price of a thin* depends upon the quantity and quality ol brain tturt i1"10 Mr Beecher said tbnt being a laborer himself, and having come of a laboring family, he wanted to seo working men elevated; but it was a mistake for them to sup. pose that they could better their conditiou by artificial combinations. The law of God was that when a man was morally and intelloctually develop no power could keep him down. It a mau was not developed lie could not rise, aud a mousey at the top ofa troe was Just as much a monkey as one at tbo root. Tho highest rea-on of all why tho meauest should Ve educated Is because he is a child of tiod and his value is to be me tsured bv what ho is through Christ. Speaking of tho ballot, the lecturer mild that New York Is as It were, the delta of Europe All tho drtntus ol tha liVi 1.w,,ue? *erOM and 1H deposited on our shores. But, although it i. sometimes malarious at Orst it anerwar.i mike, tho best soil in the country. He would have suffrage universal because the ballot U an educator, and it Is saler to permit its abuse lor a short have a'larL*h?i. p?rllou of lhe community than to nave a large body ol ignorant and Irresponsible men nour midrt. The speaker made a strong argnmem in iavor of woman suflrage, and protibesied that n would soon bo an eatabllXd fact^eakmg of !h? iti k 1 'C-'iools, ho slid he was not opposed to its being read whero there waa no ouuosition although he thought It was not lilted for aud wa? aM beVe'ad ?nf!?ih r,'aa,n? book- It would not , tPact",r mu" make selections, which were not always most Judicious.

The teacher should be a livlrig embodiment of the teachings of Scripture, for godliness in a man exerts a far more powerful influ ence tliau godliness in a book.
