He port of the Government Commit
'oncn In tXteMock Island RriSge
We find in the Rook Island Argus some
what lengthy extracts from the official re
port of the commissioners in the above
case. We give the following synopsis of tbe
material points:
They say that tbe turn-table pier is larger
than is neeessary. It should have been made
no longer or broader than was absolutely
necessary. It need not have been more than
295 feet long. Its aotual length is 355 feet.
The difference between the necessary
and the actual length—sixty feet—great
ly heightens the obstruction, by eontracting
tbe water-way, increasing the velocity of the
water, and presenting moresurfaoe for boats
to strike against.
They say that the piers are not plaoed par
allel with the current, but at angles "varying
from 26 degrees to 14| degrees. The effect
of this obliquity is to treble the obstruction
to the flow of the water, and consequently to
affect tbe increase of velocity in tbe same ra
tio. Another oonsequence is, that the pas
sages of steamboats and rafts through the
draw and between tbe piers, are rendered
much more difficult and basardous.
They say that the draw on the Iowa aide
is rendered useless by tbe formation therein
of an eddy. This eddy, as nearly as oan be
estimated, is 100 feet wide at the foot of the
pier, and the turbulence in the water caused
by it extends about 600 feet below. Its ef
fect on the passage of boats is to insreaso
tbe difficulty, on acoount of the care required
to avoid getting one part of the boat into it
while another part it ia tbe earrent of the
The surface of the water, they say, at the
up-stream end of tbe turn-table pier, is 10}
inehes above the surface of tbe water at the
down-stream end. The extent of the back
water or remous as nearly ae could be esti
mated, is about 150 feet.
They give it as their opinioo that the bridge
is badly located that in consequence of its
location it is a greater obstruction to the pas
sage of boats than was necessary and that
any site in the vicinity below Rock Island
would have been better.
The Board recapitulate some of tbe oorrect
me jjurpOM
of showing how far th*y have been con
formed to or departed from in the construc
tion of this bridge. Tboe principles are

should have the minimum cross section con
sistent with the support of tbe superstruc
ture, thus offering the least obstruction to
the flow of tbe water, and increasing the ve
locity of tbe current as little as possible.
3d. The piers should always be placed par

same reasons as those stated in tie seoond

4tb. In designing a bridge over a river
having a largo oonuneroe ia bonte and rafte,

est praotioable width.
ID applying these principles to the Rook
Island Bridge, tbe Board say they are con
strained with extreme regret to report that
they hare all been fiolated thus rendering
the bridge not only an obstraotion to the
navigation of the river, but one materially
greater than there is any oooaaion for.
flJTThe Journal of Monday evening last,
quotes from a correspondent of the N. Y.
Evening Pott to let the editors of the Oate
know that intelligent members of the Re
publican party do not understand that the
Dred Scott opinion goes to the extent of de
nying the constitutionality of squatter sov
ereignty legislation against the right of the
slaveholders to hold slaves in the territories.
We don't oare particularly what may be the
views of Republicans, though we never heard
of any intelligent Republican who differed
with us, on that question. We quoted the
"Opinion of the Court" direetly to thetpur
port, as well as the opinion of the [ignorant]?
dissenting Judges, McLean and Curtis, and
also the assertion of Benton and the ac
knowledged views of the entire South, to tbe
same effect. We oan stand without backing,
even against the editor of the Journal with
tbe implied edorsement of tbe casual remark
of a correspondent of *& eastern newspa
One "intelligent" Democrat, Thomas H.
Benton, thirty years a Senator of the United
States, put his opinion on record amongst
the laa( acts of his life. lie says:
"One pood effect the decision of the Court
has had, and that is—the extermination of
Squatter Sovereignty. It tears up that doe
trine, root and branch and, it would seem,
to the gratification of its votaries. For they
rally to the Court's deoision, and make ad
herence to it tbe test of Democracy, with
tbe same zeal with which they supported that
dootrine during its brief day.
"What teste of democracy we havesoenin
three brief years Adberenee to tbe Mis
souri Compromise tbe test when Mr. Douglas
brought in his Nebraska bill, and until Mr.
Dixon's amendment started new game. Then
destruction to the Compromise, and devo
tion to Squatter Sovereignty, was the test.
And this test oontinued for about two years,
whenit uatexploded by the Supreme Court's
decision. Then that deoision becomes the
test, and the Demoorat is politically excom
munioated who does not change again—give
up Squatter Sovereignty, as he did the Com
promise—and take the Constitution,perse, as
sole slavery legislators in a territory, and only
a one-sided legislation to carry Slavery into
all territories, and abolish it in none and
keeping and protecting it there, in defiance
of Congress, and the people, and in defianee
of all laws previously existing there. And
this to be done by virtue of a Constitution
in which its framers would not permit the

done over again.
Plead Fsury.
A case where the statute against usury was

LATKR FROM EUROPE.—Tbe Ameriea has
arrived, with three days later intelligence,
but the news by her has not yet been sent

Breach of Promtae.
A trial is now in progress at St. Louis,
against Henry Sbaw, on an alleged breach of
marriage contract. The damages are laid
at $100,000. There must have been a large
rent in the lady's heart and it must be a
large heart, to make so big a bole in.

sufforers by tbe explosion of a steampipe on

Judge Gould has just made one of the most
delivered in this Judioial Distriot. Inaoase
tried on Tuesday in Schoharie County, he
ruled that, the Court of Appeals having
just decided that "the condition of landlord
and tenant" does not subsist between our
patroons on one stde and the tenants on tbe
other, therefore the former cannot sue the
latter for any rent, in any shape. In conse
quence of this decision, Judge Qould ruled
that the patroons could not maintain suits
against the landholders. The suit was ac
cordingly struck from tbe calendar. We
get this from a person who heard the de
cision. If be has not misunderstood Judge
Gould, we have reached a point in tbe Anti
Rcnt troubles whiob will soon quiet that ex
citement which has existed in tbe manor
towns for the past twenty-live years, and
w.hich must exist so long as it is claimed that

their charge from the Court and retired to
considor their verdict this morning at half

evening at 5 o'clook with a verdiot of "Guil

the verdiot being announced, the defendant
addressed the Jury, deolaring the verdiot

trial, and the resalt is what was generally
The case was conduoted with very marked
ability by the counsel on both sides. Ths
efforts of Messrs. Miller and Hall for the

ever made at the bar of this county. The

probably oonsume tbe balance of tbe term.

JACKSONVILLE, 111., May 28.—The severe
storm of Thursday evening made its appear
ance in the southwest at 4 P. M. It seemed,
at first appearance, about the sice of a man's
head. Its first appearance was that of a
fountain boiling over it increased in size,
throwing small cloud-like folds from the
eloutin to the earth, increasing in width and
violence as it approached the earth.
From Manchester, to a distance of twelve
milt)* directly northeast, we oan count thirty*
six dwelling houses, with all the barns and
out-houses, destroyed.
Tbe i umber of killed, a far as heard from,
is eleven, among whom are Mrs. Koutb. a
son of lieorge Van Zandt, Samuel Brown, a
Portuguese in tbe employ of Mr. Kute, Jon
athan Carlisle, Jacab Sample and wife, and
a Mr. 'l homas.
Thero are about fifty eeriously, if not mor
tally, wounded. Most of them, we fear,
must die.
To give an idea of the force of the etorm,
I have in my possession a stone, weighing
three unds, that was lifted upnd oarried
sixty feet, passing through a window four
feet from the tloor.
A wind-mill was carried over 400 yards,

Thero was not ton feet squard within the
route of the storm that bas not got rails,

ly pull them ont. Whole partitions of houses
are gone and cannot be found.
A ujto riding a field was blown from his
horse, tbe saddle torn off and carried about
two miles from the plaoe.
No one can form an idea of the terrible ef
fects of this storm, which lasted but five
minutes, with but little raiu. The oloud
was very bright, while on either side of it it
was so dark that it was impossible to distin
guish the objects.

he, "have my client's rights been invaded,
but also, to sustain that inroad, you find ar
