Soinu excitement bus sprung up In tho

county, Illinois, over n discovery mndo by
them that certain lands, which they sup
posed thoy owned, on thu outskirts of tlio
city of Chicago (80 acres, moro or less),
has been convoyed by ono of tho trustees
of said colony, without their authority,
to J. Rtissoll Jones, United States minis
ter to Belgium, for un irindcquuto compen
sation, Tho colony, a short tinto since, employed
a lawyer to make un investigation, but) in
conseouenco of tlio destruction of tlm nub.
lie records by lire, ho made slow progress.
Finally, ho ascertained (and this was un
nccidentul discovery) that, somo tlmo alter
tho convoyanco of tho land by Oloff John
son, tho Trustee, to Jones, which was on
tho 20th of December, 18iifi, Jones con

for tlio consideration of ono dollar, on the
iiOth of May, 1809, and wns Immediately
thereafter appointed Minister to Belgium.
Tlio deed recites that this property had
bceii hold In trust by Jones for Grant, but
no such trust was shown of record, und
it is noted that Mrs. Jones relinquishes
dower, whereas sho could havo no dower
In property held in trust by hor husband.
Tho Bishop Hill Colony claim that this
proporty belongs to thorn, and they huvo
presented u formal request to President

A further investigation will probably
show that this property bolongs to tho
Bishop Hill Colony, und that a Court of
equity will so decree: that nftor Jones
bought It, ho concluded to lot Grant into
tho speculation, and drow on him for a
portion of the purchuso-inonoy; that ho

THE HORRORS OF IILOOMINODALE MEN

MAD-HOUSK AN EFFORT TO REVEAL
THE MYSTERIES OF THE DEN.
From the New York Tribune, Augut I,
J. D. Townsend, lawyer, on Saturday
obtained a writ of habeas eornus. directed
to Brown, suncrlntondlnc physician of tho
Bloomnlgdalo Lunatic Asylum, directing
him to bring Miss Mary McCnbc, detained
ns a lunatic, boforo Juuco Barrett, or tho
Supremo court. Miss McCabo is ono of
thrco ladles illegally contlned in tho asy
lum, und in whom .Sir, van Viccii, lorm
orly of tho llrm of A'an A'lech, Rood &
Sherron, whoso relenso was obtained n fow
days ago, has takon great intorcst, nnd for
whom 7io und his lawyer, Townsend, aro
nt present actively at work. Tho writ of
habeas eornus is returnnblo to-morrow.
Miss McCabo Is n nun, who was forcibly
takon from a convent in this city nnd con
fined ns a lunatic. It is said that Miss Mc
Cabo was committed for complaining of b
priest ut tho convent, nnd an attendant
swoars of hor own knowlcdgo that tho pa
tient is porfoctly sane. No othor action is
quoted to establish Insanity, and tho lady
would nrobablv havo been rolensed lone
aco woro it nut that sho Insists in main
taining hor charge against tlio priest.
Another habeas corpus was takon out by
Mr. Townsend In behalf or Miss To res s a
Drow, upon tho petition of Mrs. Irwin, her
former nttendant, who swoars she never
was insano. This writ is returnnblo on
Thursday. Mr. Vnn Aloch has author
ized Mr. Xownsenu, Ills lawyer, to proso
cuto his own enso nnd those or tho ladlos
alluded to, until an investigation or the
alleged abuse or patients shall havo been
ordcrod by tho proper authorities. Mr.
A'an A'lech nnd Mr. Townsend declaro
tholr determination to habeas ovory person
confined In the asylum, to tost tholr con
dition. Tho following letter from Mr. A'nn
A'lech throws further light upon this
painful subject :
" I wns rudoly torn from my breakfast
table, in my homo in AVostchester County,
on March 1!7, 181, by two ruffians, thrust
into a carriago und driven to tho Bloom
ingdnto Asylum, I protosted, of cottrso,
and called upon my family and sot van ts
lor assistance, but without avail. I bo
llovo now that their ours and minds hud
been poisoned against mo. Upon reach
ing tho Asylum, I wns received by Dr.
Porter, and to him I also protostod against
tho great wrong that .had been done to me,
nnd received in return u smilo thnt was
intended to bo swoot, and a demand of nil
articles in my possession. Upon tho de
livery of my fow articles I was placed in
tho custody of nn nttondnnt, nnd from
that tlmo until about Juno 21, 1872, 1 was
kopt a closo prisonor. I soon found that
it was next to imposslblo to get any
lettors out or tho institution other than
such as woio satisfactory to tho officer In
charge, and, nftor making frequent at
tempts to gain tho car or my nttornoy, I
soiucu mysctt to inouuiy i saw beioromo.
I managed to koop a diary oi passing
scones from tho tlmo 1 culerod until I left,
and many wcro tho devices 1 had to retort
to to prevent my action from being dis
covered, and my papers, which wero pre
pared for tho bonellt or other poor unfor
tunates, who might profit by them, from
destruction. Upon tho suggestion or
friends I wus urged to send for Mr. Town
send, my proscnt nttornoy, and Mr. Uar
ing, nnd enjoy a bettor opportunity to
roach tho outsido world than heretofore
I managed to send him a letter. Ho
kindly responded, and immediately called
upon mo. I stated toy desiro to leave tho
place, and ho directed mo to say nothing
to tho officers in chargo until ho had
served thoni with a writ of habeas corpus,
as ho desired to llnd out who'.hor thoy still
adhered to their old system of dismissing
patients beforo tho receipt of tho document,
and answering in Court that thoy had no
such porson in custody. On tho samo day
tint Mr. Townsend called, Dr. Btimall
informed mo that 1 was dismissed. I
shall refrain from stating what I thoro
saw during my imprisonment, and simply
say, that or nil infernal institutions I can
concclvo of nono worse than tho Blooming
dalo Asylum for tho Insano. Up to Sat
urday I had been unacquainted with
tho nuiuo or tlio Justico who had commit
ted ino, nnd I havo not yet lcarnod tho
names or the physicians who discovered
my insanity. I shall bo surprised if tho
