Our Trip. On Monday, 25th ult., at 11 o'clock a. m. we bade adieu to our friends, and started for the village of Chica go, via Burlington. As wc had noth ing elae to amuse we counted the fence posts between our stock-vards and Burlington, on the north-east side the Toad—just 100,768, making above Middletown: A man while driving a load of hay along the hill above his house upset it just in the niche of time, which upset his house and rolled it down the hill hogaryn nin^, snorting, tumbling chickens perched on the fence, feathers ruffled up, looking astonished and laughing. We managed to crowd into theeleep tnw-tar at East .Burlington, on tuat favorite western road—O. B. & Q., —and at 7 o'clock, Tuesday morning, woke up on the lake, moving slowly through a pitiless storm of snow and wind, the lake rolling majestically, billow on billow, and the sea birds sporting in the spiay or skimming along the dark l.orizon which lower ed close in tdiorc. On stopping ia the great Union Depot, we were as nailed by a batallion of newsboys shouting find shnkingthe fresh niOrn ii.g news under our probocis, while as many u boot-blacks" squirmed at our heels and clung to our nuderpin ings. But it was no uso wo clutch ed our pocket-book the tighter aud sang a short ditty, "no, no! The first thing, after getting break fast, was to look around "he city.— This was satisfactorily accomplished in this wif*e: Went to corner Stato and Lake, taking car for tho cele brated Union stock yards.

Three Vast tanks are Bituaied in the center of the grounds which supply water through pipes to every peu. Three sides aro fiilod with unloading achates, one for each railroad. The C. B. & Q. road run more-stock in than either of tne oth ers, and tho greater proportion goes from lows. A large hotel is situated at the yurds, for the accommodation of drovers, buyers, or visitors be sides an opposition house close by.— The stock-yards bank is situated at entrance. Hero are large recep tion rooms, in one of which are a number of desks of the consignees, each having a salesman. In another room is the bank, where, no doubt, more monoy changes hands in one day than on Wall street in two. In another room is a saloon, and anoth er a systematic restaurant. On the second floor ie the telegraph and oth er offices. The yards are controlled by a stock company, with a capital of one million and a half. The yards are so admirably systematized that it is only *e$*sary to let your con signee knigv# that yqor stock is com ing and it will be taWi care of aiid disponed in short order, for an ar»y of buyers are constantly on handf*-r Very small lots Were iir wiien were there.
