The Great Fire of 1871 Almost Equalled —The First Alarm Sounded at 5.30 P. M.—A Gale From the Southwest Sweeps the Flames Steadily On—Aid Asked and Received—Futile Efforts of the Firemen — A Night of Horror. especial Despatches to The boston Globe.) Cleveland, O.,Tuesday, July 14—9 P.M. Despatches received from Chicago state that a large conflagration has broken out in that city anti iH now raging with destructive effect. The fire is confined to tho south side of the city and considerable property has been destroyed. As the telegraph wires are burned down, it is impossible to learn the actual extent of the tire at present. Various reports are current, and it is said the whole of the South Side is burned out. 9£ P. M.—It. is now learned that the fire in Chicago is between Clark street and the Exposition building. The Grand Pacific Hotel is in danger. A large force of firemen are at work, fighting the flames. IO P. M.—'The fire continues to rage fiercely, and the destruction .of an immense amount of valuable property is inevitable. The Palmer House has been gutted. The fire is now breaking out on Madison and Lasalle streets, and is said to be beyond control. FROM CHICAGO First Direct News from the Keene of the Conflagration—Aid Asked and Received. Chicago, Tuesday, July 14—10 P. M. A terribly destructive conflagration is in progress here. A large portion of the South Side is consumed,including many prominent business buildings, hotels, offices and other public buildings. Fifteen blocks in all have been nearly destroyed. The loss will be immense and will be a heavy blow to the insurance companies. The fire companies have beeft on the ground, fighting the fire, all the evening, but unavailingly. The flames are spreading furiously, and, unless checked, the loss may prove something unprecedented. Telegrams requesting assistance have been sent by the authorities to various points, as the city firemen are unable to cope with the conflagration.    _ THE DETAILS. V An Awful Calamity to the Great Metropolis of t he West-Oi tai ii of the FI re-Rapid Progress of the Flames—A Terrible Night—The Post Office and Many Other Prominent Buildings Destroyed—Churches and Hotel* in Ashes. Chicago, Tuesday, July 14—Midnight. An awful calamity has again befallen this city, and, unless the wind changes, there is every reason to believe that the terrible loss of 1871 will be almost equalled. At 5J P. M., fire broke out in a baru in tile rear of No. 527 South Clark street, belonging to a Jew, whose name cannot be learned; the locality was near the corner of Second street, in a region where wooden buildings of the flimsiest order are the rule, and it did not take long to f^n the incipient blaze into a terrible conflagration. A second, third, and general alarm followed rapidly, and soon the entire Fire Department of Chicago was at work. A stiff gale was blowing from the southwest, and the flames swept steadily on, hedged in on either side by the efforts of the firemen, but were utterly resistless in their awful march towards the junction of the lake and river. Taking a diagonal course in a northeasterly direction, the fire burned a clean swath of about a block wide from Clark street, the starting point, across Fourth and then Third avenues, striking State street at Eldredge court, mowing down the Continental Hotel like a reed, aud then widening out towards the north, and sweeping on across Wabash avenue, between Hubbard and Peck courts, destroyed the splendid First Baptist Church, near the corner of Hubbard court, one of the finest churches in the city, which escaped the great fire of 1871; also consuming the Jewish Synagogue, corner of Peck court. At this time, 8 P. M., it seemed as if the JI re would sweep through Michigan avenue, and, being hemmed in on either side by the firemen, would die out for lack of something to feed upon. But the fates ordered otherwise. While the Baptist Church was wrapped in flames and the firemen were exerting themselves to their utmost to keep the flames within the limits to which they seemed to have chosen. The wind veered and blew strong from the south, changing the direction of the fire, and turning the flames toward a harvest of splendid buildings erected since the great fire of 1871, on Wabash avenue, State and Clark streets and Michigan avenues. Up to that time, it seemed that Harrison street would be the extreme northern limit of the tire, but, with the change of wind, the hope died out In a moment the flames leaped across that street, and the Post Office was a mass of flame before the awed multitude could realize the extent of the new danger which threatened. At the same moment the flames sprang up again at State street, and fanned by the wind, swept northward until from State to Wabash avenue an awful avalanche of fire rolled onward towards the wealthy business centre of the seemingly fated city. After crossing Harrison street and devouring the Post Office and buildings to the north, the angry flames leaped across Congress, and the great Adelphi Theatre, formerly Aiken’s,soon crumbled Into dust. The Davis sewing machine building, corner of Harrison street and Wabash avenue,and its stately neighbors also have proved fuel for the flames. Both sides of Wabash avenue, from Eldridge court to Congress street, with now and then the exception of a building, are burned to the ground.State street is in ruins from Harrison court nearly as far north. All the groat wholesale and retail houses on the South Side prepared for their inevitable doom by removing their goods from the houses to places of safety. Even the merchants on Water street were busy in the same way, and every vehicle in Chicago was pressed into the service. All the better class of buildings in the newly-constructed portion of the South Side have fire apparatus of their own. All of them have steam up, and it is hoped the fire may be stayed, at least at Monroe street. The St. James Hotel, corner of Van Buren street and State street, is now within the grasp of the fire, and unless the wind changes soon, or the efforts of the firemen are more successful, nothing but lack of fuel will stop the tire. The losses are already up in the millions. LATES. The Fire Leap* into Its Old Track of 1871, anil Con ti oui s in Its Course of Destruction —New and Beautiful Structures Burned-The Stricken People. Chicago, Wednesday, July 15—12J A. M. After the burning of the Adelphi Theatre on the northwest corner of Wabash avenue and Congress street, the fire jumped into its old track of 1871,Band crossed over outlie north side of that street to Michigan avenue, destroying the Scammon building and sweeping on towards Adams street, carrying everything in its way on both sides of that avenue nearly the entire distance from Congress street down, which was rebuilt after the great fire in 1871 In a most substantial aud elegant manner. All the business blocks occupied by the extensive wholesale concerns, furniture, millinery and carriage warehouses predominating. At the present writing, the fire is sweeping down the costly thoroughfare, the gale blowing so stiffly that all efforts of the firemen seem futile. At Van Buren street, the fire has also made its way through to Michigan avenue, and the Matteson and Gardner Houses, as also the Exposition buildings, are being fairly showered with cinders, falling so thickly that the sky seems alive with an awful storm of fire. The entire horizon is lighted up with an angry glate, and lowering clouds of smoke seem to frown ominously upon the stricken city. The Lake Front Park is covered to the water’s edge with goods snatched from the burning buildings. Families bereft of homes are grouped around what little property remains to them, steadily watching the merciless tongues of flame that are feeding upon the proud edifices and lowly hovels alike. The streets, since evening set in, have lieen jammed in every direction with vehicles of every description, loaded down with household goods and merchandise. Nearly every store-room on the South Side, east of State street and north of Eldridge court, has either been vacated, the goods removed, or else preparations are all made and drays are ready at the door. Proprietors and clerks await the dread catastrophe which seems to be so surely approaching. Up to the present time the following are the prominent buildings destroyed: Continental Hotel, First Baptist Church, Jewish Synagogue, City Post Office, Penna-yer, Shaw'& Co., B.C. Griggs & Co., Woodworth, Ainsworth & Co., William E. Spencer & Co., Wabash House, Michigan Avenue Hotel, Cass Hotel, Davis Sewing Machine Company, Inter-Ocean buildings, the Chicago Terra Cotta Company, St. James Hotel, and Our Fireside Friend. These are ouly a few out of the many that have gone. The hour is so late and the extent of the lire is st) great that it is utterly inqiossible to give a full list. The fire is still progressing down the avenue, and W. W. Strong’s Furniture Company, D. Webster's & Co.’s millinery, Bowen & Kent, and Burley & Tirrell crockery, the Matteson and Gardner Houses all seem doomed. Up to this writing, scores of acres are covered with ruins and the spectacle is terrible. The loss is not so large as it would have been had the fire originated among the respectable buildings; but from $5,000,000 to $8,000,000 would be a moderate estimate of the loss. I A. M.—The fire seems to be speut, and it may be considered fairly under control, although the wind is still dangerous, and the firemen cannot yet relax any of their efforts. LATEST! The Fire Under Control—Recapitulation of the Losses—Cause of the Fire, Etc. Chicago, Wednesday, 2 A. M. Tile fire is now entirely under control, although the wind is still blowing almost a gale. When the Haines had reached Van Buren street so great was the intensity that it seemed certain that nothing could save a clean sweep to the river and perhaps through to the North Side,but the firemen worked with the energy of despair, and at Van Buren street Hie flames were got under control. About 1.30 A. M., the track of fire was from near Twelfth, on Clark street, about one block wide, crossing State street at Harmon court, reaching Wabash avenue below Eldredge court, running down Wabash avenue aud Slate street to Van Buren, destroying both sides, burning through to Michigan avenue, between Congress and Van Buren streets. The fire was undoubtedly originated by an incendiary. About a week ago, the same barn was fired, but the flames were extinguished in their incipiency. Some person having « grudge against the owner, a Jew, is, undoubtedly, responsible for this terrible loss. Matteson and Gardner Houses and the Exposition building, the Burdick House and many wholesale houses in their vicinity, which were threatened during the evening, are safe. The first reports sent from here were somewhat exaggerated. REGATTA WEEK. THE HARVARD NINE BEATEN BY YALE. How it Happened-Harv&rd’s Complaint-The Programme for Today-Single Scull and Freshman Races-The Running Races-Entries Thus Far — Regatta Notes, Etc. [Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.) Saratoga Springs, N. Y., July 14. The weather, today, especially in the afternoon, was excellent for rowing, and all the crews were out, both morning and evening, sick men included. Harvard, Yale and Wesleyan still stand high in public opinion. Somebody claims to have timed them over the course and to have found that the Wesleyans went in 17.04 and Yale and Harvard in about 17.20. Theft) does not seem to be much betting, but those -who do bet take Harvard, Yale and Wesleyan about even, the last-men-tioued, however, being somewhat behind tho others.    _ THE FIR8T HARVARD YALE CONTEST. The Gaines Between the Base Ball Nines— Harvard Beaten—The Score 4 to O—How this Besuit was Occasioned — Charac* A aa lout the Yale Pitcher. [Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.I Saratoga, Tuesday, July 14. Tlte contests between the rival colleges began, today, with the first of the series of games between the Harvard and Yale base hall nines. The result was unfavorable to Harvard, but both clubs have reason to be proml of the game, which was probably the best ever played by college nines. It was played at Glen Mitchell, in the presence of nearly 2000 persons, ladies and gentlemen. The small score, four to nothing, and the fact that Harvard mado but three errors and Yale but five, shows the excellence of the game. The superiority of Harvard in respect to runs shows that Yale must have out-batted the magenta boys, and the reason was this, the Yale pitcher delivered the hall in a way that would not be tolerated in a professional game. It was clearly an underhand throw, and beat Harvard. It was conceded by all previous to the game that Haryan! excelled in batting ami Yale In fielding. The score showed that Harvard out-llelded Yale, and, being superior in batting, nothing could have lost the game but the throwing indulged in by the pitcher. The Harvards went to the bat first, and consequently at the close of the first half of the ninth inning the game was assured to Yale, and there was such a tossing In the air of blue ribboned hats as one seldom sees. The Harvard men looked on a little scornfully and somewhat disconsolately, but with aa expression in their faces that seemed to indicate that “It isn’t over yet” was in their minds. Harvard will have another chance, tomorrow. at 9$. Following is tile score of today’s game: HARVARD*. ll* It. 1*0.A.R. Leeds,s. s.... • I 9 2 7 9 Hodge,?, )b.. . 0 0 2 I 9 TYIer, c. f ... .

Boston and Saratoga Weather. To the Editor of The Globe: Sir; Saratoga letters show that my prediction for Monday was very well verified for tile day’s general weather. The discrepancy as to the company live foulness of the forenoon and afternoon was through my Inadvertence; and will not occur on Tuesday, though I may have somewhat overrated the general foulness of Tuesday, a* I did here in Boston, by underrating the counteracting heat-tote?. Except in midsummer, Tues day’s “jcsst” would, in Boston, have played foul. As there is now no need of privacy tis to Saratoga, for this week, I will tm more full and definite in my statements. After 2, Wednesday morning, the weather will get cooler and more foul till 8 or 9 A. M., when it may rain some, at Intervals; if not, the day will he flue throughout. From 8 to IO A. M. the foul will get a decided check. Some show of cloud* may diversify the forenoon, at limes, veiling the Intensity of the beat; but the afternoon will be cloudless, most or quite, and the hest well sustained till after mid-afternoon; after 5, cooling fast, with thunder-showers, possibly, by or before midnight. The crisis or heaviest force of the foul will las from 9 to ll, evening; TA. M. to Thursday, letb, clearing to fair or finer. Some reaction to cooler find dull or cloudy, and possibly foul, from 6 to IU A. M. Alter IO. the day throughout will be fair and hot, the hest holding on till mid-afternoon, or even later, but cooling fast, and boding a change to clouds, or perhaps showers, before I or 2 A.M. of Friday, 17tb, which Is very ominous till after 9 A. M., though lather strongly counteracted. Saturday, 18th, cool, also, till IO A. M., perhaps dull; after IO A. M., 17th and 18th, fair.    F.    L. CAPEN. Boston, Tuesday, July 14. THE LAST FLOOD. The Beal Cease of the Die aster- Farther Details of the Damage. [Special Despatch to The Boston Globe. I Springfield, July 14. — Investigations made, yesterday afternoon and evening, show that the commencement of Sunday’s flood at Middlefield was the giving way of a third reservoir, situated farther back on the Middlefield brook than the two which have been previously mentioned. This reservoir was the smallest of the three, and was built about twenty-five years ago. This upper reservoir wa* situated near tbe Hinsdale and Peru town lines, aud was known as tbe “Goose Neck ’’ reservoir. It contained water sufficient to operate tbe factories below for ten or twelve days, and was kept on reserve for emergencies of drought. AII these reservoirs were private property, and no County Commissioners had been called out to pa** upon them.

That Remarkable Letter, of which Tilton Published an Extract, Fully Explained- Besuit* of the Committee’s Investigatioas-Full Text of Mr. Moulton’s Statement—A Strange Combination of Remarkable Facts-What Beecher’* Friend* 8ay—The Separation of Tilton and His Wife. [Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.) New York, Tuesday, July 14. It was supposed when the committee was appointed to investigate the differences between Mr. Beecher and Mr. Tilton that tho evidence would be kept secret and not allowed to be a matter of public rumor and gossip. But it seems that some of the facts have leaked out, and there can, therefore, be no harm in stating what has transpired before the committee. The whole case is full of most painful surprises and revelations; and the last and most peculiar phase of the investigation is to the effect that Mrs. Theodore Tilton has appeared before the committee without her husband's knowledge, and given testimony which is, in fact, favorable to Henry Ward Beecher. The rumor is that Mr. Tilton, who supposed lie acted magnanimously in lier case, as well as in that of the pastor of Plymouth Church, was entirely under a delusion on the subject, and that the separation which his friends advised when when the scandal broke out has now taken place, with a proapeet for an immediate suit for divorce. It further appears that when Mr. Tilton appeared before the committee he at first declined to mako specific charges against Mr. Beecher, as he claimed that all he had to do was to vindicate his own good name without doing barm to Mr. Beecher. However, as the case proceeds It lias become apparent that the whole of tile scandal, first made public by Mrs. Victory Woodhull, must he thoroughly ventilated. Mr. Bowen has been cited to appeal; before tho committee, and Mrs. Woodhull has offered to come forward and state her knowledge of certain facts and bow she obtained them. It is stated by Mr. Beecher's friends that there is to he a funeral in this case, but that it wril not be that of H. W. Beecher himself, but a different person. His defence, it appears, amounts to this: That Mr. Tilton had been guilty of repeated infidelities, most of which came to the knowledge of his wife; that she had been stung almost to madness by these infidelities and ids constantly manifested want of consideration for her; that In this excited frame of mind she sought counsel of her pastor, Mr. Beecher; that the latter impulsively took her side of the case, and urged her to procure a divorce from Theodore Tilton; that Mr. Reedier bussed himself in the affair a great deal more titan he should have done, ami that subsequently learning front Tilton that some, at least, of Mrs. Tilton’s charges were unfounded, he wrote that contrite letter to Mr. Tilton, a part of which the latter ha* so effectively used to put Mr. Beecher in the attitude of a criminal suing for mercy, whereas lie was simply expressing poignant sorrow for having imprudently interfered in a family quarrel. A very imjiortant personage In this case is Mr. Frank Moulton. He ha* always acted as a friend and confidant of both parties, and has endeavored, up to this tjme, to compose the difference between them. But Tilton’s letter to Dr. Bacon was published against his wishes, and it is thought that ho now decidedly inclines to the Beecher side. It is understood that there are other ease* besides this of Mr. Tilton's to come before tbe council, and that they must inevitably be discussed by the investigating committee. The persons whose names have not yet been mentioned will probably he called before the committee and invited to testify. The following statement, by Frank Moulton, will be read with interest: MR. MOULTON'S STATEMENT. Gentlemen of the Committee: I appear before you at your invitation to make a statement which I have read to Mr. Tilton and to Mr. Beecher, which bulb deem honorable, and in tbe fairness and propriety of which, so far as I am concerned, they both concur. The pan lee in this case ate personal friends of mine, In whose behalf I have endeavored to act as the umpire and iieacemaker for tbe last four years, with a conscientious regard for all tbe interests involved. I regret for your sakes tbe responsibility imposed on me of appearing bere, tonight, lf I fay anything I must speak tbe truth. I do not believe that the simple curiosity of tbe world at large or even of this committee ought to be gratified through any recitation by me of tbe facta which are In my possession, necessarily in eoafidenoe, through my relation* to tbe parties. Th* personal differences, of which I am aware as tbe chased arbitrator, have once been settled honorably between the parties, amt would uerer have been revived except on accoi/nt of recent attacks, both In and out of Plvmoutb Church, made aport tbe character of Theodore Tilton, to which he thought a reply necessary, lf tbe present Issue la to be settled, it must be, in my opinion, by tbe parties themselves, cither together or separately before your committee, each taxing tbe responsibility of bis own utterance. Ail am fully conversant with the fact* and evidences, I shall, aa between these parties, if neecesaary, deem it my duty to state the truth, In order to final settlement, and that tire world may be well informed before pronouncing Ha judgment with reference to either. I therefore suggest to you that the parties first be heard; that lf then you deem it necessary that I should appear before i on I will do so, to speak tbe truth, tbe whole truth and nothing but the truth. I bold, tonight, as I have held hitherto, the opinion that Mr. Beecher should frankly state that he had committed an offence againat Mr. Tilton, for which it waa necesaary to apologize, and foe which he dbl apologize In the language of tbe letter, part of which has been quoted; that Im should have stated frankly that be deemed It neocemary fog Mr. Tilton to have made tbe defence against Dr. Leonard Bacon which he did make. and that be, Mr. Beecher, should refuse to be a party to tbe reopening of this painful subject. It he had made this statement he would have stated no more than tbe truth, aud It would have saved him aud you the responsibility of a further Inquiry, it is better now that tho committee should not report, and, in place of * report, Mr. Beecher himself should make the statement which I have suggested, or that, if the committee does report, tbe report should be a recommendation to Mr. Beecher to make such a statement.
