Quito number of fina buildings hate been erected in Iowa City since my laat *i§il. The Holt notable of these are the Boarding House of the University} a building of ample pro portions and fine appearance, and the John •on County Court House ie far away the finest edifice of the kind in the State. The entire tiost of the building with its complete ap* pointments of office vaults, gas fixtures and other applianeea, amounts to near sixty thou •and dollars. The tax on the people ia a heavy one, but we know of no tax whieh a people ought to pay more cheerfullly than that for permanenWpublic buildings adequate to the wants and oreditable to the people by whom and for whose use they are designed. While the tax payers of Johnson have se cured these ende, they have at the same time the proud satisfaction of knowing that they have the flneat oounty buildings in the entire State. 1 called at the Republican Office and was disappointed to learn that Mr. Jerome was absent in Chicago the junior of the estab lishment however, Mr. Dunoan, did the hon ors very handsomely, and we aro indebted to him for kin6 attentions. 1 also met Judge Miller, whom I bad trav eled with on Saturday on bis return from court at Tipton, and who, I was specially pleaded to learn, as #ell by the papers as from friend*, is winning golden opinions from all sorts of people by the ability with which h* (fiftffli**«»• th* rfiitiM position. crease it by continuing' to publish hi* legal card any longer.

Mo Iowa Uwyer ofta got along with out these Reports, and no Editor shoold bo without them if ho ooa get thoia oa sueh term*. Jast ftftor thi* importftnt mftttor had boon arranged to the mutual eatiafaotion of the parties conoerned, the very gentlemanly con ductor, Mr. Jones, (to whom I ftm indebted for many personal favors, and kind Atten tions to the ladies ftad ohildren of my family as they have traveled oneeoorted baok and forth,) called my attention to a lady paaaen ger, with a ohild, which had been bitten by a mad dog. The boy wa* a very bright little fellow, four or five years old, ftnd his wrist had been a good deal laoerated the night be fore by a dog, wbioh was thought to bo rabid, and was killed on the spot. The woman wa* almost beside herself with grief and appre hension, and the countenance of the boy bore a painful expression of excitement and fear, caused by the talk of the wondering and sym pathising crowd. I learned from the woman that she was on her way to Indiana to find a mad sfonc. I tried to quiet her apprehen sions, partially, by assuring her that there was no oertainty and hardly a fair preeump tion that the dog was mad at all, and, even if he had been, I insisted that the ehanoes were very greatly in favor of the child's escaping without any serious effeot from his wound and, finally, I urged her to stop in Daven port long enough to spply lunar caustic to the wound and consult a physician. Here is a woman, and only one of hundred* of thous ands like her, In the middle of the nineteenth oentury, and in this land of intelligence and newspapers, traveling hundred* of milee in search of a "mad etone." Yet these people sneer at the superstition and ignorance of their fathers, ridioule the ryal oure of the king's evil, soont witohcraft, ignore "*pelle," pity the folly of former generations, and in their superior wisdom run after mesmerism and mad stones. Before I had the opportunity of fully im pressing the woman with the propriety of •topping at Davenport, we were at the Junc tion, and I left her for the Musoatine car* but even now the painfully etrained eye* of that frightened ohild look through mine and atir the fountain* of feeling and of tears. As we approaohed Musoatine, however, and oame down in full view of the great father of wateis spread out in wide expanse before us, we had another sample of ignoranoe still more astonishing, but exoiting a very different mood of mind. A passenger, whoee appear ance and habiliments indioated that he was a denisen of the soil of the western prairies, but whose middle age forbade the idea that he was to the "manor born," broke out in a simple and earneat tone with the honest in quiry, "What river i* this?" Whether that man's ignorance Is bliss to him or not, it is very certain that tie oouM not have furnished with any possible measure of human knowl edge the same amount of pleasure to his fel low-passengers as they derived from that brief inquiry. The Distriot Court wa* in session at Mus catine, and I had the opportunity of seeing Judge Dillon, who preside* over the Court of this Distriot with muoh honor to himself and to the univereal satisfaction of the Bar and the public. He ie a man of sterling qualities of head and heart, of superior talents and of great industry. And in this connection let me call attention to the faot that all the Distriot Judges elected by the Republicans last fall are aoquitting them selves in such a manner as to elicit the uni versal approval of the people of all parties, and are thereby vindicating before the world the principle and polioy of popular judicial elections and reflecting much credit opon the Republican party of the State. Our readers would hardly be satisfied without some remarks a* to the prospeot* of the ooming politioal oanvaas, and the proba bilities a* to who will be candidates, and we should be very muoh pleased to be able to gratify them in this regard but the truth is, there are but few definite developments as yet, and all mere oonjectures would be of little value. Dodge, it is very oertain, will not be tho Democratic candidate for Governor, and Fisher probably will be. There are a num ber of gentlemen spoken of as probable can didates, in addition to Qov. Lowe, before the Republican State Convention, btil there is no suoh definiteness or concentration of idoas as would render speculation on the sub ject profitable at present. There seemed to be a muoh more intense interest amongst the lawyer* upon the *ub jeot^f Judge. Chief Justioe Wright, it i* understood, positively declines to be a candi date for re-eleotion, notwithstanding the pe titions of members of the Bar without di* tinction of party and the very uranimon* desire of the Republican party thatheehould be a candidate. His declination throws open a wide field from which to ehooee, and we doubt not both parties will eventually select their ablest and bsst men for Mm responsible and exalted position* onerous, JS^Rev. Henry Clay Dean is spoken of a* a Democratic candidate for Governor. If the Democracy are not satisfied with the fu neral sermon delivered over tho corpse two year* ago by Ben. M. Samuels, we know of no person in their ranks who would be likely to pronounoe a more eloquent sermon, or one in every way better adapted to the ocoaaion, than thi* same Henry Clay, sirnamed Dean. The Fran* Grew IM The deeper the oommittee of iavoottgatioa penetrate into the operations of the Illinois Looofocos for years put, tho more stupen dous grows the fraud. It has been now as certained that $70,000 more than was ins pected have been stolon by them. Before the committee oloeee its examination, there i« no knowing what may turn up. It will take full $500,000, in all probability, to so?cf 4fce de fioiency, and perhaps more. Ooa FrNAHciAL COMDITIOK and EXPIKDI- TOWS.—The Davenport Gazette copies from' the Financial exhibit of our City Clerk some leading items of expenditure last year. It thinks $1000 for Mayor's salary, $500 for hi* two trips East, $1,559 for the City Engineer and $796 for Aldermen'* salaries are rather heavy items for suoh servioe* to be paid by a city with liabilities to the extent of $1,1^7, 782 and no available asset*. We admit the force of the oriticism, and our city govern ment will fail of their duty to our creditors and to our own permanent interest* if ^hey do not avoid all cause for similar reflection this year, and hereafter. Let as not refuse to understand even from a rival oontempora ry, how such things strike the public. £5P"In the South the United State* em pannele a jury of slavsholders, whioh ren der* a verdict of acqittal in favor of the pi rate* of the slave ahip Echo. In the Ncrtb, even in the Western Reserve where t^ree out of four person* are Republioaas the Government empannel* a jury composed sx elusively of doughface Looofooos, who send men to prison under the Fugitive Slave Law, •imply to give the required test of fidelity to e i a y Loss or CAtTLi.—The OskilSosi Herald report* the death of five hundred oattle in Mahaska oounty alone during the past season for laok of food and shelter. The fatality amongst oattle has been very general, and very great throughout the State, but we should hope that no other oounty has suffered so much as Mahaska. gSP"The ioe broke up in Lake Pepin last week, and the arrival of the first boat of the season from St. Paul was ohronioled at La Crosse on the 22d inst. (£jTGovernor Medary, of Ranaa*, passed throngh St. Louis last Saturday, on his way to visit his family in Ohio. Heavy front in TenaaaRea. There was a heavy frost in Tennessee on the 18th. The Nashville Nmo* says: It is hoped that no additional injury was done by it. Indeed, there remained but lit tle for it to do, except to early vegetable gardens. The late apples and eherriee, a few of which were still left, we fear have been entirely used up by this untimely frost. We hope that it ha* not injured the early wheat. Tin Ore In Jefferaan Canaty We have in our possession a small piifce of tin, melted frotn the ore, which was fouiodon the farm of Amon Johnson, a short distane* from Saliua, in this county. Mr. Johnson says tbut be can get large quantities of it.— He found it on the banks of Walnut creek.— If it is to bo found in quantities sufficient to justifv mining, it will prove more valuable to Mr. Juhnson than a gold mine at Pike's Peak, as there in but one mine discovered in the world, wo believe, that yields tin to any great amount, that one being in Cornwall, Eng land. We hope that further inquirie* will be made into this matter, and that we Bhall be able to chronicle to the world that tin ore in abundance exist* in Jeff ex* on coua^y.— [Fairfield Ledger. irirn.
