Sprixokield, 111., Feb. 11. Both houses
considered and ordered many bills to a
third reading this morning, which, when it
is not agreed to the contrary, is equivalent
to the passage of niue out of every ten.
The house this morning adopted a joint
resolution taking a recess from the loth to
the 18th instant. The senate will concur,
as either house will not have a quorum pres
ent after to-morrow, from the fact that so
many committees are off junketing at State

A (JCKSTIOXAP.LE KILL.
Mr. Maistou's house bill No. 1 35, report
ed favorably by the house judiciary com
mittee, is h measure of very doubtful
propriety. It provides that by a vote o
the county the several towns and cities in
said county may be made responsible alone
for all the paupers within their limits.
When it is considered that cities are a ren
dejvous for tram ixi, pauiH-rs, etc.. who thus
desert the country towns, it is easy to see
what burdens will thus be imposed upon
cities whiUi the rural districts would
escape. Under the present laws counties,
as a whole provide for paupers, while the
state has no such thing as a pauper. Mr.
Marston's bill will lead to state paupcrage,
which is one of the worst forms it can take.
Then wouliL come more "institutions,"
more "bureaus," until the state would be
doing nothing else but taking care of its
worthless inhabitants. Mr. Marston's bill
should be defeated, as pernicious and dan
ANOTUElt OBJECTIONABLE MEASURE.
II. B. 10 was ordered to a third reading
this morning, and is another hit of bad leg
islation. The present law, upon the taith
of which the bonds were sold provides that
the interestand principal of all bonds voted
to railroads shall be collected and paid by
the State authorities at the State treasury
and in New York. This bill proposes to
violate the cou tract by providing that this
shall be done by county authorities at
county seats. It is a bill to enable county
officers and county bankers to handle this
money, ami if possible depreciate the bonds
and buy them in ut as much discount as
possible. It is the work of country back
ers and money sharks and should not and
never will become a law.
TUB MAYORS' HILL.
Mr. Jennings1 bill repealing the present
mayors' bill was unanimously adopted by
the committee on municipalities this afte
noon, nnd the chairman instructed to report
the same to the house. This bill grew out
of tho East St. Louis mayors' light, and
was prepared by Mr. Jennings of St Cluir,
and has been strongly urged by Mr. Wider
of thnt city. - Now, if that goes through

House bill 317 amending the general law

Tlii'J reduction creates much dissatisfaction

OPPOSED TO THE REPORT.
The report of the Finance Committee of
the Senate will meet with serious opposi
tion, as both Secretary Sherman nud Com
missioner ltaum are using their best efforts
to defeat it, upon the ground that the pro
posed reduction of the tax on tobacco will
liminish tho revenue over $11,000,000.
The friends of the lull are much
alarmed nt the prospect of its defeat.
The bill will be reimrted on Thursday.
THE CIPHER TELE
GRAMS. HE POINTEDLY DISAVOWS ANY KNOWLLDoK
OK THE RASCALLY I1USINKSS,
In New York, on Friday last, the Cipher
Telegram Committee examined Mr. Tilden.
The chairman of the Committee addressing
Mr. T. said:
Governor Tilden, w e received your note
expressing your willingness to testify."
Governor lililen 1 nave u cold nud can
not speak very loud ; the publication and
translations in the New York papers
I have read ; I did not recognize
single dispatch, either in cipher
or translation, wnicii i nati ever
seen before ; I neverentercd into any arrange
ments to purchase the vote ot South Caro
lina or Florida; I had no information and
no suspicion that any such communication!!
were being carried on until 1 saw the dis
patches published m the New York Tri
bune; I had no knowledge ot and dealings
with the parties to the negotiations.
never authorized any such negotiations in
auy form whatever. On the morning of
November 20. 1S70, Mrs. Colonel Pelton
mentioned in mv presence that her husband
had "one for that day. I didn't know that
he had gone or was going out ot the city
He went to Philadelphia, I believe. Later
in the day I was called on by Mr. Cooper,
who was on his way down town, and was told
by him that he had received an otl'er from
some party, offering to obtain for money
the vote ot boutli Carolina. 1
said I would authorize no such transaction
nor spend money for any such
purpose. The whole conversation occupied
only a few minutes. I obtained Colonel
Pelton's address in Baltimore and tele
L'raphcd him to come homo. I knew noth
inir of the ciphers that had been passing
between him and others aud I could not
have translated them. I never saw one of
the teleirrams, either in cipher or transla
tion. I did not know and was not informed
that negotiations were going on in regard
to illegally obtaining the certificates ot the
returning board for some time. Mr. Mar
ble called and told me. in a casual kind f
way, alwut the corruption of the returning
board of Florida. 1 never saw any of
these dispatches relating to Florida, either
in cipher or translation. In regard to the
Oregon dispatches, I did not know they
came in cipher until ' after a meet
ing of the committee to investigate
them. Sumo of the dispatches were
addressed to my residence, No. 15
Gruinercy Park. I don't know that any of
the.1 dispatches were ever delivered th.Tc.
Colonel Pelton's habits of mind and mine are
very different. A day or two after the elec
tion General Grant wrote a letter recom
mending committees to go South to see a
fair count. I had nothing to do with the
selection of those committees. I never
heard from them but once, and that was
through the communication signed by Ot
tendorfer and others. I was very busy all
the time and did not undertake to correct
the idea that they were my personal agents,
which has no foundation. They represented
the Democratic party. None of them so far
as I know went to these States author
ized to do anything that gentlemen
might not do. From tho 7th of Novem
der, 70, until December 0 of the same year
under no circumstances did I cuter in any
competition for seeking certificates by ven
al Inducements. There never was an hour
nor minute that I entertained such thought,
to tho people who, as I believed, elected mo
president of the United States to the four
millions or citizens who were defrauded, I
owed it to proclaim that I would not yield
one jot or tittle o.' my right. Whatever
evils may result from tho subversion of the
electoral system and of u free government
I resolved that I would enter into no auction
for the purchase of tho chief magistracy.
Governor Tilden was hero interrupted by
cheers, which the chairman suppressed. -
Gongrcssnian Mills, of Texas, overdid
tho thing in his speech on the proposition
before the house to reduce the army. The
Congressman felt that the government had
not furnished the state with enough soldiers
to protect tho frontier, and as he had to
make an assault ou somebody he concluded
to charge the responsibility upon tho Dem
ocrats. It is evident that Mr. Mills dis
charged Ids gun in tho wrong direction.
He forgot that the Republican administra
tion considered it more important to control
elections with muskets than to protect tho
Tex'ts frontier or to save tho soldiers oppos
ed to the imlians. Mr. Mills will proba
bly livu loipr enough to learn that ho shot
the wrong way. '
Tho Oil City Derrick man says that the
miserable pittance of 450,00(") annually
doled out to tho chief executive of Franco
is all that kept him from accepting tho
situation when offered him. Shake, old
fellow! When wo took tho position wo re
lied on the perquisites to keep from starv
ing, and when tliey railed u, threw tho
blasted thing up and went into lucrative
and honorable pararnphlng.
NEW SEIUES-XO. 201
LOGAN AT FORT DONALDSON.
From tha Andcr-un (Ky.) Nowa.
Gen. John A. Logan, who was elected t
the tinted States seuateby the Republican
of tho Illinois legislature last week, was
found severely wounded on tho battlo field
of Fort Donaldson by our esteemed Circuit
Clerk, Captain W. E. who, thinking
him' dead, took off his splendid sword and
belt and sent them to his family. Captain
Hell, who was then a gallant Confederate
soldier, came upon General Logan stretched
out upon the ground, dressed in full regi
mentals, his arms folded across his breast,
his eyes closed and giving no sign of life.
While standing over, us he supposed, the
dead Ixidy of tho Federal colonel, Captain
Bell was joined by Captain Maderia of tho
Confederate side, who recognized in Logan
his old schoolmate. Maderia was deeply
moved at what ho thought to be the un
timely fato of his youthful companion, and
directed Captain Ri ll where to send tho
sword of tho fallen chiet'Uin. Logan was
shot through the lungs, and his life hung
on a thread for a long time. Madeira was
afterward kilied at Chickamauga.
OVATION" TO GEN. LOG AN AT CAR
BONDALE. General Logan was in Carbondaie last
Saturday. A dispatch to the Chicago
Tribune says :
It was known throughout the town and
country that Senator Logan would be in
Carbondaie during the afternoon, and his
staunch old Egyptian friends by the thou
sands had resolved to congratulate him on
his recent proud victory. The outpouring
of the people was not eontiiK'd to party.
There were hundreds of utahviivt Democrats
and scores of Greenbackers all wanted to
see John A. Logan, their old friend. Sena
tor Logan arrived from Murplivslniro on
the it p. in. train. On his arrival he w;is
received with a salute of fifteen guns, under
command of dipt. Spencer, U. S. A., tho
tine silver cornet baud played national airs,
the Cadet Corps attached to the Normal
University paraded in full uniform, and cit
izens of the town and country to the num
ber of 3,000 were in waiting to greet him.
lie senator was introduced by Hon.
Isaac Clements, when he made a short
speech, thanking his friends for their kind
ly greeting. He was then escorted to tho
Newell house by the Cadet corps and citi
zen's committee, 'where ft general hand
shaking was attempted. This proved a com
parative failure. 1 hough tho hotel was
thrown open, and every attempt made to
accommodate the crowd. It was lound im
possible. Accordingly, a platform was im
provised ut the comer, in the street, and
Logan was compelled to come out and
make a speech. Ho did so, rather tried
totloso. For the first time in his life,
probably, he was not equal to tho occasion.
So large a spontaneous greeting was
never seen in a small place like this, and
Log'anknew and felt that no man was ever
more cordially welcomed. In the evening
the doors of the hospitable residence ot
Mr. E. J. Inaersoll were thrown open,
and probably 1,000 of the ladies and gen
tlemen of the town attended tho re
ception. A splendidly-worded address f
welcome was delivered by Mr. John II. Bar
ton, which was followed by a feeling re
sponse by Senator Logan. For three hours
there was a constant stream of people com
ing und going, the best and most intelligent
citizens desiring to pay their respects to
their distinguished friend and neighbor. Lo
gan has reason to be proud of this ovation.,
St- LoaU 01oue.-yjetnocrat.
Ho sat on tho side of the lvini in a big
white-oak rocking chair. A loug cured
deer hound snapping at flies was by his
side ; a basket of sewing by hers. Both
rocked incessantly that is, the young peo
ple not the dog or basket, 'lie sighs
heavily and looks out of the west window
at a crape myrtle tree; she sighs lightly and
gazes out of the window at a turnip patch.
At last ho remarks:
"This is mighty good weather to pick
"Tis that if one had any to pick."
The rocking continues.
"What's your dog's name?"
Another sigh-broken stillness.
"What is ho good fur?"
"What is who good fur';"' said she ab
stractedly. "Your dog, Coouy."
"Fur ketchin' possums."
Silenco for half an hours.
"He looks like a deer dog?"
"Who looks like a deer dog?"
"He is but he's kinder bellowed, and
gettin ,old an' slow now. Au'. ho ain't no
'count on a cold trail." ; v,:
"Your ma raisiu'any chickens?"
"Then more rocking, and somehow, after
awhile, tho big rocking chair and the bttlo
rocking chair wcro jammed sido by buIo.
I don't know how it happened. After a
while the conversation was resumed:
"How many has your ma got".
"How manv what?" .
"Nigh onto a hundred."
By thistimo tho chairs wcro so close to
gether that rocking was impossible.
"Tho mink has eaten most of ours." s
More silence, when lie says : ,
"Do you like cabbage?"
' "I do that.''
Presently Ids hand is accideutly placed
on her. Sho does not know it. Tlien after
a half hour spent in sighing, coughing, and
clearing of throats, ho says :
"I've a great mind to bite you."
"What you great mind to bite mo fur!"
"Kaso you won't have mo."
"Kase you ain't asked me,?
'Well, now I ax you'"
"Then now I has you."
Mr. Conkling flies into a passion and do-'
nounces tho Republican senators who voted
against him in tho contest over tho Now
York appointments as "Hessians." This i
one of tho little arts resortod to by the
Now York senator to mako himself strong
where lie has no patronage to bestow.
Outside of New York ho in regarded u
hardly tho man to lead a great party.
