for tho six months ondlntf the '4th- Inst., was
gprcad before tho readers of the Bulletin' yes
icrdnv evening From that source wo learn
that the entire standing debt of tho city is
only i"B",70 Theottt-tandlng scrip apd
tho claim of Mc. Fox. Howard & Co.,
cover $100,020 40 of tho total indebtedness,
nnd tho outstanding debt tho balance of 1182,

duht for ii city to curry whoso population ox

ty ii Ynlucd'nt'j.OOO.bOOl 'Many'cltlci In tho
northwest and south, of far less ability,
carry debts exceeding n hiilf million of dol
lars. During the six months previotu to tho 1th
of January, tho total receipts from nil sources
amounted to T0,S..2 33. This turn embraces
tho revenue for IBfeH, which amounted lo $52,
TilO C2, and n balance of $10,302 11 that was
In the tr..aury on the 1th of July previous.
The amount of scrip redeemed is set down at
$50,080 12. Tln-ro was in tho treasury on
tlio 4th Wist. $23,102 08, nearly nil of which is
held sacred" to meet hu accruing interest on
tho bondwl dobt of tho city. , , nr ,

named, $21,005 40.
The mnrkethouse, which has been de
nounced as an unnecessary exiienso to tho

into thoeitr treasury $1,201 22, and lookout

L'ton tho whole we think the report ex-
h'.V.ts the Unancinl alfairs of the city n t
verv health v condition. Why the city's f'vl
donees nf Indebtedness should rato 30 and 40
cents Mow. when each recurrlnit year's
taxes absorb nearly the whole .amount, , is a
(pietIon more readily asked than answered.
That there is sufficient cause for it In the n
nnncial aspect of our corporation affairs, is
vcrv far from ovldeiit.

Congress, following in tho foot tup of its
preile,eor, Is hummerini; away at the ne
gro. The Imagined wrongs and grievance
of that sooty rneo rank paramount to all
other contiderntions, and claim attention
when tho interests of tho republio stand im
periled through neglect.
Another constitutioual amendment is con
ceived nccctsary to tlx the political statu of
the uegro, mid the Judiciary committee have
traturrd and rejxirted it. It declares that
thu right of any citizen to hold tho office of
elector of pronidunt and vice president, re
presentative in congress, and member of the
state legislature, shull not be denied or
abridged by tho law-making power of any
htnte, or any citizen or nuy claiti of citizens:
that race, color or previous condition shall bo

"Why do tho radical clamorcrs for negro
xpiulity stop here, and leave half their work
undone ? Tho doors to tho presidency and
vi -a presidency yet remain closed against tho
Inutk man, and until they aro thrown wide
and oven ontered by a braco of odorous, long
bevled, lubbor-lippcd Africans, the radical
agitation for thu oqualily of tho negro will
not cease. Why does Mr. Uoutwell, who re
ported thl amendment to tho constitution,
Vp short of tho manifest purposo of tho
radical party ? Ho Is In favor of removing
all social as woll as political restrictions from
the negro, yet contuuts himelf with oil'oring
his 'aun-nmsked" brother only a cushioned
sent in tho senate and houso of representa
tive! Why doe ho not play out tho full
radical programme? Hy so doing tho begin
uiug of tho end of this infernal agitation about
tho "oppressed African" will bo brought to
viow. Tho negro may li satlslled with n,
seat in congress, but tho philanthropic Now
Kn;'land radical will not cease tho ngltation
whilo "his man and brother" is closed out
from tho dignity of tho presidential chair of
this won-dorful republic.

We have already announced tho violent
death of a young man named 1. . Corder,
a rosident of Marion, in Williamson county,
at tho hands of another resident nainod Sam
uel Cover. It appears that Cover and a young
er brother of Cordor ciuno to blows, last Fri
day, and that tho rencontor resulted in tho
discomflturo of tho latter. Cover plead guil
ty boforo tho mayor next day, and was fined
ten dollnrs. Whilo In tho act of stopping out
of thu mayor's olllco he was accosted by P. F
Cordor In a vcrv angry and insulting man

drow a pistol nnd shot his assailant through

instantly. I heso aro tho details as given by

Tho I'hillndolphltt 'Jivonlng rutriot' as
iens as the reason for this tho immense cost
attending thobjpuuiut fcprn -east through
Chicago. It says that this immouso tax UjKin
and of a largo portion of Illinois has compell
ed them toit'ilfn their attention .to' tlio outlet
via Cairo and Now Orleans, which oint aro
nccesi"b(o to them by" water, 'with little or rip
railrondlng, u , . .
Tho frelnht on a bushel of cram from Chi
cago to Uullhlo is 10 cents, from Hullalo to
Now York is 18 cents ; cost, bf mnndlingutt
Chicago 0 cents j totAl 34 otits pur bushel.
From Cnlro'to-NcsV'Orle'ans the freight is 11
cents pcr bu'shelj Handling at New Orleans
1 cent; total 12 cents, making adillercnco in
favor of tho routo via Cairo of twrnty-lwo etuis
ptrbwh'll To Liverpool tho diiferenco be
tween th freight on a biuherof grain from
Cairo and from Chicago is estimated at about
15 cents in favor of Cairo !
These figure, which aro furnished by ac
tual experiment, dcignato Cairo as tho future'
grain market and entrepot of tho northwest.
The twenty-two cents per bushel in favor of
Cairo and New Orlrans, renders this outlet
not onlv tho best and chospct for train des
tined for "European markets, but for tho mar
kets of the Atlantic seaboard. It would pay
for thu, transportation of grain from New
Orleans to New York and leave a margin of
at least six cents to tho bushel I
The 'Patriot' justly remarks that the farm
ers of tho riorthweH'a're tired of paying trib-1
ute to tho railway ,kfngs nnd canal lords of
Chicago and New lork, and aro now deter
mining to consult their truo Interests here
after by using those great highways of com
merco channeled by tho hand of the Almighty.
With this vifw they are adopting all legiti
mate means within their reach to unprovo tho
navigation of tho upper Mjilppi and it
tributaries, that they may roach Cairo by
water, and thiuilnd a perpetual roleaso from
tho tyrranny and extortions that bavo served
to impoverish them and enrich the "monopo-

A Mysterious AsTatr.
Homo weeks ago tho bodies of a man named
Ansbach and his wife wore found at their
rooms in Cincinnati under circumstances that
led to tho belief that the husband bad shot his
wife and then killed himself. .Since then Mr.
Schutte, a brother of Mrs. Ansbach, residing
at Dayton, Ohio, has been Investigating tho
matter, and has arrived at the conclusion that
it was a doublo murder, and committed by
partios who mado their way into tho houso
soon after tho old man returned homo. Tho

waist wus cut open, and tho monoy wa gono

hud boon robbed and tho boxes of trcasuro
under tho collar stairs had been hastily dug
up and their contents carried away. All these
clrcumstunccs Indicate clearly that Mr. A.
did not murder his wife, and thon tako his

ERIDAY BVBNfeJcr; EtfRY 22,
who had tho ccrot pf,rs. A.'n hiding. places
for her money, made their way into tho houso
beforo Mr. A. returned, and that tho thieves,

Mr. Millor, of Cook, moved that the bill

mado thu souclnl order for Wednesday.
Mr. lltiilv, of Stephenson, hoped it would
not bo put out of tho hands of the houso now.
It was an important measure, in which tho
people took great interest. Whilo its friends
should not forco it, ho thought u discussion
on the question of railroad legislation would
not b" throvn away, "o iiopeu mai ucuaio

over tho subject and moro probably preferred
to consider tho bill, in oruor to ouiatn wnai
he desired, ho moved that tho houso go into
committee of tlio whole, on the bill.
Mr. Millor, of Cook, said ho had no desire
to cut off debate; but. since the bill had been
presented, questions had arisen, notably in
regard to tho Illinois Central railroad, which,
according to tho opinion of some of tho
supremo court judges, would free that road
from its tax; still ho woum wuuuraw his mo
tion. Mr. Ilailoy spoko a second timo at irreat

Mr. Tarker. of Coles, thought Mr. Jlalloy
dodged tho real points which would como up
In tho courts, no intenueu to voto airainst
tho bill and wished to clvo tlio reasons. There
was a growing popular prejudice against too
railroads, and If tho peoplo wero turned loose
in many cases their tracks would bo torn up.
That had boon dono in a county near his.
Tho passage of tho bill would conflict with a
well settled point oi constitutional law. xney

Tho federal conbtltutlon declared that no itato
could puss a law impairing tho obligation of
contracts. Tlio friends of tho bill had to as

Ho claimed to show by reforonco to tho U. S I
supremo court decisions that a chartor to it j
railroad mado it contract. Itallroads wcro .
public corporations only so far us taking land '
was concerned, and tho Michigan caso quoted i
by Mr. lliiiloy referred to that point only,
and not to cuntruuU at all. Nor was there 1
any distinction between banks and other closo
corporations and railroad'". It was out of tho j
power or leghiaiivo io( ues to divost any l
them of their vetted rights. Nor would their
charters bo impaired by tho passage of this
law. Almost all charters hud contained a
