They further contend that the saving in tnuiNport.nl ton after two years will save bout $'Ai,UUO par milium to the state, nil Unit within three yeara nil tlio convicts that can be profitably employed will hecontlued witliln the walls, and lurthur, that ill a couple of veurs from now, the two penitentiaries will pay to the statu a uet annual revenue ot lomo t li OU). Now, on the other linnd, the minority re port of the senate committee, aa made a lew days ago, opnoaes the lease ou the following KroumiB, snying; first, wetinnic the stato can reume control, and conlluu us many convicts with in tne walls a tlio lessees ar required to conllne, and cause the outside, labor to earn bout l.ajo,2tl within li Itee n years. Becoiul. We think tlio siateoan resnmo and conllne about ow convicts with n the walla (ions term men) and save, above the protttn ol the leaae-cotilruota, about '.',l.l, IKH) wl, hill till cell xeara. Third We think if the slate can suvo then iiimi, It ought to do so; nnd it can bo Wisely appropriated to schools, publio roans, or reuiiuiioii oi laxaiton, or oil er luibliouao; and th consummation of such result is more desirable than to expend It in paying iv to luuuce ine coriinemeiit ol a ltuilleil number of convicts within tlm walls, who are not self-supporting, while the creator portion ar worked outside of Ilia prisons. Fourth. We think the state ran batter maiiane Its convicts, ultei its policies, reuu. late the character of labor and Industries of the oonvlcta, if It remains unembarrassed by the rights ana tuteresis ol lessees. Filth.-We think if we ratify the lease. we commit the state lo the policy of the lease lor lilleen years; lor while the law prior to issi provided that any (mure lug' (stature might revoke a lrae for stiv cause. the law ol lwl seems to conllne the right of approval or rejection vo ine urat legislature (except fur violation of the terms of the Leant 1 Blxth.-If it It lo he the policy of tlio state to wiiuuraw convict moor iroiu any kind ot employment at which free labor can receive remuneration, that class which cannot support themselves can be placed unnu the llrat-olassuiiblio roads and bridires of tbe state ai a charge upou the counties for their actual expense only, and this would relieve, to a gnat extent, Ihe free la boring classes from a heavy tax and burden and establish a good system of roads. Boveutb. We are opposed to the approval of tbe leases, tor ine inner reasons more mil ant out in t lie loregotUB statements, Th onnotltiou further suecifv their olv lections to Ibe proposed leas by saving that, "among other thiugi, it la urged in favor ol approving me lenses, mat mey innnias the number ol convicts to be eon- . lined wilbin the walls, above the number heretofore confined, and that this is done not only without risk of loss by the suite, but with an ascertained prolltof $2U,oui) , wear for two years, and $U,tiUu yur year for thirteen years. "In investigating this question we should consider the following facta: The peuiten tlary convicts now ntmibsr K.'-Ts, The annual net increase per yoar, as shown by tba report ot the superintendent for l&tf, page 11, ti 125 per year. For 110 ecu years siiTnek Increase will be 1.873. The total number At - tba end of the lease contract, urvetn yean, will be t.i.vi, not ooonnting far lucres In sooulatlon.

His extremity light trousers pntninlly accomualo his lack ol tibre, 11 ii cont and limit oven-oat are an exaggerated Imitation of the llond street style, anil in the ovnutng lie wears a very abbreviated "cover-coat."

I sew a "dude" at Newport last summer, nt whom people were laughing very mum on account oi tins same etict. As the tails ot the dress cost came quite a distance below the bottom of the "cover coat," the inevitable Inference was that the lining of the former had come out.

It is evident that each covoy is ruled by one or more leaders.

A scattered pile of wood within a circtintforeutse of chips is a side-sear on the scene.
