THE ILLINOIS CAPITAL.
Si-uiNom.ui, Feliruary 22. A few of
the old times men ot vijjor in the ln-t fr-n-cration
yet ren ciiilier that the 22 of Feltnt
ary is Washington's hi rt Inlay, and so re
meuiherin it ire inclined to give it soine
sort ot attentioa and respect, and accord
ingly both houses of the general assembly
ailjoinned at an early hour to-day.
THE SHX K YAltO MO.NOI11I.Y
of Chicatjo is an object of attack from vari
ous (iiarteis in the (eneral Assembly. Some
idea of th .- alius: and monowilir;tic tenden
cies of tin: stock yard may be seen from
the fact that the receipts alone! from yard
aye during last yetr have liccn $1,000,-
000. When one eompnres the price paid
for hay, alKiut $S per ton, with the price
uked, $20 per ton, and actually diarized
ami obtained by the managers from the
farmers anil stock men. it is not- surprising;
to see unrest anil a disposition to regulate
thatcorptitation by legislation. Complaints
of abuse and extortion are being madt
every day against this immense corporation
THK UKVKNFE LAW,
us it now cits in this state, has not yet
nu t with any positive nssailinent. It stil!
remains a vexed (iiestion with legislative
minds, and it is a mutter of doubt whether
the (ietfial Assembly will solve the cnn
gloineration of "tangled webs."
The great outrage of the law is the lact
of its burdening one class of tax-payers and
relieving another. Those who were instru
mental in imposing this law upon Illinois
need not attempt to shirk the responsibility
by saying, "We did not know how it would
work." Those who now hold positions
high up in authority know of il, for they
were told of it time ami again and
should have heeded. This law, how
ever, was enacted solely for w purpose of
making tin- fanners, merchants, ami me
chanics bear the burden while the corpora
tions were to go scot free, ami this has
lias been the practical operation of the law,
namely, to relieve over $5011,000,000 of the
taxable property of the nabob ami $100,
000,000 of railroad property, ami placing
the additional burden upon the labor mid
industry of the state.
it. is from Ihis cause the great outcrop
ping of the internal revenue law was tirst
seen in the "board" bureaus of the state

1 IAN XI HAL HAMLIN AS A PROPHET.
A good story is told aliout Hannibal
Hamlin, who is out: of tin1 oldest senators,
mid who is yet univcuncilad with the ad
ministration, The venerable Hamlin bus u
very marked tlown-eiist accent, lie was
one ol the party of Republican senators
who, early in the Hayes administration,
culled upon tin president to remonstrate
with him upon his Southern policy. Dur
ing the conference Mr. Hamlin occupied a
back scut, and sal with his hands rammed
down to tlin bottom of his breeches poekels,
while his head leaned forward on his
breast. Ho was nn intent listener to all
that was said, both by the senutors mid the
president. Ho listened with a special in
terest. whtin thu president commencct! to
talk about the possibility of his policy.
The president was In his most genial, hopi;-
ftil mood. He spoke in glowing terms of
tlio beauties of thu common brotherhood:
that g'.etioiiullly should Ihj forgotten, uml
that thu sweet spirit of Christian iutluuDoe
should comn to purify the contests of poli
tic. "Our Southern brcthuren have erred,"
ald he j "have I wen bitterly punished, uml
now let us forjjlvc and torget. Let u, dear
lenstors, take the c.riug brother to onr
hosom unit convince him of tin' wsnn

NO YELLOW FEVEIt IN THE SOUTH.
Vi.Ntn.NNrX, Intl., February 20. There
has been so many conflicting reports in re
gard to the existence of yellow fever in
.Memphis for the pHst ten days, that I have
concluded to write yon for the facts, and as
a friend, will be pleasd to have you write me
it Nashville, Iennessee, care Commercial
hotel. My present intention is to go to
Memphis, and will do so unless you advise
to the contnry. A week ago passengers on
the City of V icksburg reported lour deaths
in one house the day previous to her reach
ing Memphis. Again one hundred cases
xisting in Memphis Irom others. Then the
Louisville, (,'intinnati ami Evansville papers
eem to intimate the existence of the tever;
and again, a card appears in the papers
from a gentleman from New York, who
had traveled from New Orleans and Yicks-
bury, aud he reports yellow fever as exist
ing. As yet I have placed but little if any
confidence in the reports, and will esteem
it as a favor to hear lrom you. As to the

upon to act as assistant pastor at St. Pat
rick's church in Washington. He passed
two years in this parish, ami was then call

Archbishop Eccleston. Here he labored
with assiduity lor twenty-one years, dur
ing that time iilling several important po
sitions. When Archbishop Ktutdrick was
translated to that see in Father Foley

the archdiocese of Baltimore. He also oc
cupied a similar position under Archbishop
Spalding. In 18ml he acted as secretary
uml-notary t the plenary council, held iu

vigiir-genenil, n position which his demand
ing ability eminently qualified him to till,
which he held until' tlic illness of bishop

ber. 1800, he was appointed bishop of Per
trainus piu tibas inlide ium. coadjutor and
administrator of the diocese of Chicago,
cum jure sticcessiones, and was consecrated
February 20. 1870, in Baltimore, by bishop
McCloskey, who was assisted by bishop Ro
secninz of Columbus and bishop Becker of

Foley cutered upon his work with intrepid
courage, and with strong faith in hi

A LIBEL UPON CALIFORNIA.
From the San Frum-laco Kiiiminer.
It is an altrociotis scandal upon this
community to intimate that this city owes
its growth and greatness to ihe Mongolians.
There are three-quarters of a million of
Caucasians iu California, and not to exceed
one hundred thousand Chinese, nine-tenths
of whom are coolies. Of the hundreds of
millions' worth of property in San Francisco
not one thotisanvh part belongs to the
Chinese. They have no standing in the
conmiunitv or society ; thev t iuburk in no
enterprises of magnitude; they engage in
no worthy works. First end last they are
as leech s. nn incubus and a curse to the
city. Such a contingency is utterly impos
sible; but were it even possible that the
future of Sun Francisco or California
should depend upon Chiucse immigration,
the character of the future can be readily
predicted. The coming Marius could in
less than half a century sit upon the ruins,
as the celebrated Roman sat upon those of

It will occasion no surprise, we hope,
when we anuounce thatthe Chinese embassy
in Washington is not at all distressed by
the attempt which has been made in con
gress to abrogate the Burlingamo treaty
The Chinese government would be willing;
to break up trade relations with all the
world. It prefers isolation and has never
opened its ports except upon compulsion.
The few Cinnamon who find their way to
California ate no more to the Chinese, em
pire than the spots on the moon, but as a
matter of principle the Celestials will insist
on thorough reciprocity. If they can't go
to California when they choose then the
Melican man will havo to sing small in the
ports of Hong Kong, Canton and Nankin.
The only difference is while the emperor of
China may not be able to clear the way
for the Mongolian on the Pacific coast, we
may be able to compel him to open his tea
chests to our trailers at the muzzle of the
guns of our powerful war-ships. Laugh
