'Ligkts and Shadows of New York Life; or, the Sights and Sensations of the Groat City." A work descrip tive of New York City in all its var ious phases. Its Splendors and Wretchedness ; Its High aud low Life ; Its Marble Palaces and Dark Dens; Its Attractions and Dangers; Its Rings and Frauds; Its Leading Men and Politicians; Its Adventur ers; Its Mysteries and Crimes. By James D. McCahe, Jr. The National Publishing Co., of St Louis, have just issued one of the most cmarkable aud attractive books of the day, bearing tho above title. It is com prised in on3 large octavo volume of 850 pages, and illustrated with nearly 200 fine engravings of noted places, life and scenes in New York. To Mr. McCabe is due the credit of laving produced the most complete and graphic account of the great city, and its busy and varied life that it has been our fortune to meet with. His book is brimtull of solid and useful information, and abounds in descriptions of the var ious pub'.is buildings ol New York, its palaces, prisons, hotels, churches, stores, hospitals, etc. The work sets forth in glowing colors the noble work for suffering humanity, which is going on every day in the great city, and reveals with a bold hand the terrible crimes ; the dark, mysteries, and tho hidden ins of metropolitan life. We are introduced into- the home of the .... Fifth Avenue millionaire, and carried with equal interest to the squallid cellar of the Five Pointa beggar. We are brought faco to face with the good and the bad, high and the low, with leading merchants, bankers, editors, and actors, with bummers, thieves, detectives, and murdereis, with working women, ballet girls, adventuresses, and a host cf oth ers, and we seem to be listening to bheir tnries from their own lips, so tnorougn- v do.. the author enchain our interest. Our warmest enthusiasm and our deep- t intern vt are alternately arousca uy the thrilling recitals of their deeds of virtue and vice. The history and irauas of the famous Tammany Ring aro rela ted with great force and candor, and this portion alone is worth the price oj the book. , . voa . e.

Upward of f-cven hundred buildings are in ashes. But little definite information has been re ceived concerning the loss of life ; many were killed in attempting to save their goods ; the falling walls and limbers crushed to dc:itn large numbers whose bodies will never be recovered ; the po- ice stations aro crowded with anxious iQquirers, lor. missing mends and rela tives, The fire has placed the business of the city completely at a stand still. Everything is neglected. The gener ous offers of assistance volunteered by other cities and throughout the country have created a deep feeling of gratitude. AH-WAB-A-17EE-SHEZ-A ? William M.

It is related of one horse at a livery stable on est Jackson street, that while suffering from pleuro-pneumonia. iie became delirious, and acted in the wildest and most unexpected manner. At oue time, laboring under the hallu cination that he belonged to a circus, he sat down and pawed the air with his ore feet. On another occasion he at tempted to scale his crib, wearing mean while an air of speculation in his eyes that was more than equine. Un several occasions he oeeauie wild and iurious, i ii is. but alter a paroxysm ot delirious pas ion t no poor beast would collapse into a condition cf tho utmost prostration. ia is better now, however, being among he convalescent It is to be hoped that he will forget the antics which he prac icd without being taught, for it would be a proceeding the reverse of desirable for the driver of a" light buggy should his horse suddenly sit down and paw the air, or dreamily attempt to climb over tne rroiu gate anu late utsuriver, uuggy and all, into the front parlor THE OX BUSINESS. The attempts to substitute oxen for horses frequently result in ludicrous mis haps. The principal difficulty seems to be, how to hitch up the critters. It should be borne in mind that competent ox drivers are not to be picked up on every street corner iu Chicago, uvd therefore there is much uncertainty as to the proper manner of addressing au ox in order to affect his movements, as welt as with reference to the correct mode of hooking him to the wagon. He ought to pull in harness, like a horse, but he wou't. He insists upon a huge hickory contrivance known as a yoke, and desires to be attached to the wagon in the sim- piest manner cousin- uu iuc i 1 . J.1. l,, A progression. A party oi ciers on c mo avenue yesterday afternoon experienced considerable difficulty iu making the thing work. They first attached tuo ropes from the yoke to the whifHetrees, only to encounter the most uncompro ruisinz objections from the oxen, whose feelings found vent ia kicks slow but dis agreeable. In the midst of their quan dary came a timely suggestion from a lobker-on who was evidently well up in the ox-gear. From him they learned that nothing but a chain of suitable lecath was necessary, aud, when this bad been procure !, they went on their way rejoicing, at the rate of two miles per hour. The streets were saved from utter de struction yesterday by a few vehicles drawn by hardy men, some apparent ly well-dressed persons, who displayed on their backs and behind them the ad vertisement of some weil-known clothing establishment. But there were more oxen on the streets yesterday than hu man beasts of burden or horses. A large number of ox teams could be seen in different parts of the city. Every large business house in Chicago has four or nve yoke ot oxen at wort now ctoing the heavy teaming. Messrs. Field & Leiter had several yoke ot these uselul and powerful beasts in their employ be fore the disease showed itself In the city, and have now several at work. On Mon day, when they were first impressed into active service, they were overloaded by the bovs. who seemed to think the ox some near relation of the elephant. Even this load the patient brutes drew sii-fs-.fiil!v. but thev wilted a little, and their capacity was recognized afterwards . . t.- i...., ,.. ni;,;i.i aS UClilK II'JV a ilKJZ V l 1 uu.iiuivv., - I 1 . Uxen are now being lmporiea at a rapid rate. The demand is not yet sup plied, and good animals meet with ready sale. A countryman stood hve yoke by the Chamber ol Commerce yesterday, mortiinff. and in one hour walked away with $1250 in his pocket, leaving the oxen to the mercies aud abuses of their new owners. There were ox markets all through the business portion of the city, ml !miit them cathered merchants, T-rtrJvprs !id curiosity Mcfcers. J he average prices were from 150 to Mrihanta cenerallv buvitm thir oxen. but some are hiring at $10 a day with driver. . . Hamlin.

A tram stopped there the other day, and the brakesman, after the manner of his class, thrust his head inside the door and called out "Han dah, loud and long. A young lady, probably endowed with the appellation of Hannah, supposing he was addressing her, and shocked at his familiarity on so short an acquaintance, frowned like a thunder cloud, and retorted, "Shut your mouth 1" He shut it. An English lady was recently forced to pay $20 as damages for having given a "good character" to a servant whom she knew did not doserve it. This off euce, which is the opposite of slander, is thus made by an English court to rank with the latter. There are 50,000 young men employed as commercial travelers in the United States.

Not a blessed woman of them uli is happy and coiitcot in the soil wherein fate has planted her, but must needs spend her best time and strength iu frantic efforts to pull herself by the roots and transplant herself somewhere eie. j he snobs who ride iu circus char iots tuiu up their noses at the K;hoolmistiesses who look down from infinite heights upon tho clerks and dress-makers, and the clerks and dress makers in turn pay it off with interest upon tha kitchen girls.

Tea, verily. oman are the most absurd creatures, all owing to the silly fancy that it is lady like to be a loafer. Alittle time ago one of my small busy house-keeper friends asked a lady loafer caller what bad become of her sister. "She goes downtown everyday now, says the lady loafer, hesitatingly. Is she at work! quoth the house keeper. Well, ye yes, says the lady loafer, still more hesiatidsily. "Whatdoesshe do?" asked my fiicnd. The lady loafer stammered and backed off painfully two or three times, and finally made a clean breast of it, thusly : She she ehe has charge ot the trimminiis in a dress-making establish ment. She has nothing to do with the dress making. She has charge of the trimmings. It's not a common dress making establishment. It's one of the fashionable dress-makers. She won't make a dress for a poor person." "Oh, glory ! Fan me with a cabbage leaf!" quoth my friend, the email, busy housekeepen The idea of a body's dress-maker set ting herself up to be "highstocracy." The laurels of the lady loafers in the cir cus chariots are quite faded and wither ed after that. And yet, why not a dressmaker? Isn't money made at dress-making quite as aristocratic as money made with pork, whisky, hides, soap, tallow and tobacco? Those are the material foundations upon which our American nobility found their airy cas tles of aristocracy, you know, and I'm sure dress-making is quite as high and honorable as any of them. Frcn Judge Dundy Charge to the V. 5, Grand Jury. Ordinarily I do not think it advisable to note anything said or done during a hoar.-! no itical caovass. liot wnere several of the professed leading news papers of the state make open, positive, and direct chages of bribery and corrup tion in office against some of the federal officials in tlrs state, and the editors thereof profess to stand ready to prove the charges, I propose to give them full and ample opportunity to do so. If the charires are true, the officers so charged are totally unfit to manage the trust confided to them. The sooner the fact can be ascertained, the better it will be for the publ.c. If the charges are false the sooner they are shown to be so. the better it will be for the officers concerned, aud all others who are willing to see justice accorctel to whGia it is due. It is a matter of general notoriety m one section of this state that a promi nent individual thire residing openly slates and declares in public speeches and private conversations that he, act- inc with the knowledgo and under the advice of others, agreed to receive and did receive from others a certain sum of money as a consideration for his working and voting for the nominees of one-of the political parties at the elections just now past- If two or more parties com bined and confederate together, as claim ed in the case referred to, for the pur pose cf inducing another to offer a bribe to an elector to influence his-vote at any election where a member of congress is to be elected, then the persons bo com bining are guilty of a conspiracy to vio late a criminal law of the United States and ought to be indicted and punished accordingly- Extra Copirt of th 11 m AM) for lule by H.
