There are but few men who have notch
ed off their fifiy years who will not airreo
that the ()i! City editor told the truth when
he i-Mcrvat.'fl that when we are youii',' we
waste n gret deal of time in imagining
what wu will do when we grow older, and
when we are old we wate aneiual iiinount
of time in lying about what wo did when
we were young in telling about the cold
winters and troubles experienced in gain
ing" our knowledge. AYith Mimi-centenna-rians
there is scarcely anything in the pres
ent age of tli3 world that bkmnb to compare
with the like things of forty years ago.
In our opinion, it is an exceedingly happy
thing that they don't.
Tiik bas-reliefs put up over the main en
trance to the Rockford court-house repre
sent Commerce and Agriculture by entirely
nude figures. At first the nudity was de
fended as a privilege of fine art, and it was
claimed that the figures were, from an ar
tist's standpoint, entirely chaste and unob
jectionable. But tho great majority of the
people there were not artists. The women
commenced speaking of the matter
as "a shame.'' Rude boys pelted
the figures with mud, rotten eggs
and oyster cans; the preachers and
teachers joined the clamor, and finally the
population of Rockford, as with pne voice,
declared that the scandalous "thing" nmr-t
come down. The Board of Supervisors
finally yielded, and as soon as the altera
tion can bo made Commerce and Agricul
ture will be represented by the figures of
men in full dress, iswallow-tail coaUi, piug
hats, paper collars and walking aticks
and then the crimson begotten of blushes
will fade from Rockford cheeks, and the
city will again become serene and happy.
Now that it is too late to remedy tho
matter, it has become apparent that the
anti-Chinese bill was rushed through Con
grew without due consideration. The
anfendment made by the Senate was a
most unfortunate one, and will, most likely,
serve the President as an excuse for vetoing
the whole measure. According to the rec
ord, Mr. Sargent said: "I move to add
at the end of that section (the seventeenth)
an amendment designed 'to obviate a criti
cism which has been made in regard to the
notice to tho government of China; 'and
the President of the United States shall im
mediately on approval of this act give
notice to the government of China of the
abrogation of articles five and h'ix of the
between the Lnited States
China, proclaimed February
1870, commonly called the
Burlingame treaty." The amendment was
agreed to. The articles refered to provide
for free emigration and contain the most
favored nation clause. It has generally
bften supposed, and it was so held in the
debate in the senate, that wi-, were only cur
tailing the privileges which accrued to the
Chin ese under the Burlingame treaty, while
we retained all that were of value to the
Americans. It seems, however, that bv 1
this notice of abrogation which the Presi
dent is required to give China, we, in terms,
surrender all rights of protection in travel
ing or trading in China, which Americans
enjoy by virtue ot the Burlingame treaty,
and release the Chinese government from
any treaty obligation, even not to enslave
citizens of tilt- United States. In this view
of the matter, the law in extremely objec
tionable, and would lead quickly to serious
complications A ith the Chinese government.
Mr. A no ell, the devout and amiable
secretary of the Pullman car company, who
stole his thousands from his employers
gave picnics and grand excursions at Pull
man's expense, i.s now in Uie Cook county
jail, playing the role of penitent. He is a
sly,sleek,oily-tongueil sanctimonious scamp,
and has made considerable headway already
in his game of working on Pullman's sym
pathies. He made a confession to Pullman,
brim-full of penitential sobs and tears.
And now as ho tells his interviewers how
strange it is that he should have made his
first statement to Pullman, the best friend
he ever had on earth, thn tears well up in
his eyes and choke bis utterance. And he
won't hiro a lawyer not ho. He deserves,
he tays, tho severest sentence that
can bo inflicted upon him, and
fairly yearns to hear tho penitentiary gates
closi! behind him, tint he may begin the
expiation of his monstrous crime. There
will be no more happiness for him, pwr
man, until he atoned for bis areat trans
gressinn and gets a chance to steal n for
tune from somebody else. And the num.
her of peoplo who believe that the wily
thief will yet "pun tho wool" over Pull
man", eyes, is not few. Working in that
direction himself, and having his friends at
work, Pullman will be made to believe that
perhaps, as he paid tho poor fellow only
3,000 a year, his necessities drove him to
crime. Thi point gamed, when the trial
is culled the prosecuting witness will bo
non est, nud the tearful Angcll will be
discharged. We can t say that we would
dcf..f kupIi i4 nroeramino if we could.
Pullman accumulated hi immense fortune
by a system of most heartless and repre
hensible extortion; and if anybody's money
must be rtolen, li t it be his.

Wasiiinoton, February 24, 1870.
There arc several measures now in doubt,
aside from the appropriation bills, which
excite interest. Among these may be men
tioned the Chinese bill, of which a veto is
expected ; the bill to pension soldiers of the
Mexican war, to which renewed attention
has been directed by a speech of tho vener
able General Shields; tho bill to provide
for arrears of pension, tho Texas Pacific
railway bill, the Brazilian steamship bill,
and the reduction of tax on tobacco. The
last named, however, can fail, only through
Attached to the legislative appropriation
bill is the proposition to repeal the super
visors law. This will probably fail, as the
senate shows a disposition to refuse to at
tach new legislation to any appropriation
There is also a bill, which will be urged
reorganizing the system of passing upon
pension claims. This, with a singular dis
regard to consisteucy, the senate proposes
to attach to an appiopriation bill. It
thoroughly revolutionizes the whole system,
and is undoubted intended as a means of
reducing the number of pension claims
allowed. It is needless to say that it is the
work of a Radical secretary of the Interior,
a Radical commissioner, and Radical sena
tors, as the Democrats of this congress
have uniformly been more than lilxral
to the disabled soldiers of the late war.
The Sundry civil bill, the last of the ap
propriation bills, was reported to the house
on Saturday, but will probably , not receive
consideration until the legislative bill is
It will be seen from the lorgoing that
there is plenty to do, and indeed, that great
activity will be necessary during the re
maining seven days ot the session to com
plete tho work. Indeed, the chances arc
now that an extra session will bo held. It
is found, singularly enough, that there are
many members of the house, of both par
ties, who desire such a session.
Senators Conkling and Burnsidc are re
ported to have had a violent war of words
in the executive session ot Saturday. It
was on a question about which they dif
fered, as to- which of the two told a false
hood. Burnsidc, who was never terrible
except to his friends, made "an effort to
chastising him. but was held back and
finally takcn,into an aate-rooiu by the the
other Rhode Island senator. Conklin"
has , had quarrels with more of his
fellow senators than any other
man. He is domineering, and that
is a quality which senators don't like
among themselves. His last previous quar
rel was with Senator Gordon, and that was
peacefully managed by a syndicate of .sena
tors with the venerable Hamlin at its head.
In the present case, however, language was
much more violent than in the Gordon
troul,le' an(1 H'lmside, who does not lack
personal courage, may prefer to settle the
matter himself than have others do so for
