V e have received the first special
report of the Chicago relief and aid
society. We have not had timo to ex
amine the report fully, but it appears
to be a very full i and satisfactory ac
count of tho receipts, expenditures and
general labors of the society. In look
ing for the Cairo contributions, we find
6500.00 credited to the citizens of the
city and 8150.50 to tho employes of
the southern insane asylum. We be
lieve the employes of the custom house
contributed 8100,00. This is not ac
knowledged, uulcss it is included in the
8500,00 forwarded through Mr. Lans
den. We consider the following abuse of
Theodore Tilton, from the New-York
Glole as very unkind, when Tilton de
clares to emphaticly that his affection
for " Vickcy" is purely platonic :
Mr. Tilton, in answering tho scathing
rebuke h got from a correspondent of the
Chicago Journal, puts his bund on his
limn bnd kppeals to the laws of God which
is written in hit soul. If God lm writtori

the fact that murderers often escape

being to death, even as a punishment
for tho crime of murder, suggests the
plan of condemning the guilty person
to hard labor in prison for life, tho
whole proceeds of his work to go to the
family of his victim. This appears, at
first sight, to be a very plausible and
practical theory, but would, after all,
iu many cases, bo made practically of
no effect by the very persons intended
