JJv.noay, coi respondent of tlie ' Ti ilmhc, leetured nl Klng4viMe he-t winter' nnd during his stay visited lliu County Infirmary, nnd published his views upon the institution and, its man agement. These are not such as to dis turb very much the equanimity or com placency of the Hoard of Directors or the Siipciiiitcndiiit of the establishment. They are ns follows: I visited the "county house," called in this part of tlie .West by tho Koft and Inoffensive, name of "Intinnnry." Aly host, Sir. Kastman, has been for many years n Direct or of this institution, and hu Invited 1110 to visit It. It is located in tho town of Kinsville, about n mile distant from tho viiliige,and handsomely situated tin a ;':1rtn of 130 acres of sandy 1 loam. : The building Is of brick, and largo enough to accommodate about 150 persons. It is a .building whoso apart ments are sufficiently spacious for the convenience of the inmates. I found the basement stored with . abundant provi sions for winter use; the kitchen far iiihcd with the best apparatus for cook ing ) the. Mtting-rooins and bed-rooms clean and tidy and there wan nothing of tho poor-house odor nothtlig of the poverty-stricken air which reminds a visitor of want nnc woo and work-house afiliction. Tho man and woman man and vilu in charge wore cheerful laces and Were very popular' with., their "guests." The Ashtabulians have the good taste to hide from their poor the fact that the dependent poor nru obliged to lean upon tlicm lor support. Ihey call this boai'iiing-houso for the iin'ortit nate poor the "lnlii mary," the occupants not paupers, but "inmates." The hospi tal for the. incurable insane is a separate building, a few steps from the Infirmary proper. It is a model structure, about 40 ieet long and HO feet wide, and has 13 apartments, 10 above, uud 5 below. It is cheerfully lighted, abundantly supplied with water, well veutilated, and made perfectly secure, without State Prison holts and bars. Tlio lloois uud rooms are kepi clean, and the unfortunate occu pants have the advantages of good ven tilation, cleanliness, light uud pleasant surroundings. Their comfortable quar ters tire iii striking contrast with the cells so common in our county houses. Kveii the incurable patients seemed to have an appreciation of this improve ment in their condition, for they were quiet und comparatively amiable, and they certainly gave those who take care of them less trouble and anxioly than ehroiiio patients do under the old regime. This building, with its modern improve ments, cost only $5,000, and its accom modations are equal to the best iu the first-class asylums lor that class of the insane. There is nothing ot the sort, to coiunurc with il in tho ''.Empire State," and I doubt if there bu one equal to it else t here m slmertca. THE INMATES. Poor-houses usually have the same tin pleasant variety of inmates. Old persons ol uotli sexes, Miotic ami insane people and half wilted children, w ith here and there n victim of sickness, accident and misadventures in business. There is iu this Infirmary an old negro 110 years ol age who said he had been a body tervant Of Wusliiiiylon when be (the negro) was onlv twelve years of age. He is uu intelligent old man, and has been known Xereabouts for half a cen tury, und he was an old man vhen he first came. Several whito haired old Ineii and w ould) rested on their beds, or lounged in chairs, or hobbled about on crutches, and a lew w ho. were able to work, mado themselves useful in various ways, bringing iu wood, sweeping floors, washing dishes, etc, A gray headed old woman, who had killed her husband, made herself busy knitting. Shu has been iu the institution thirty years. Iu one room was an old man ot eighty seven and his daughter, sixty-seven ; they seemed to bo satisfied with their lot in lilc.. One of the insane men, 11 caso of chronic insanity, had formerly been largely engaged iu the inusie business iu La Crosse, and it I am not misin formed, was at 0110 time iu partnership with 1 bad bury, of New York, iu the piano-forte trade. Ho was lying on the iloor, and . refused to get up" to gratify his visitors. , He is considered u danger ous man ; indeed, his eyes, and voice, and speech gave abundant proof that ho would rather do mischief than not, and that assault uud battery would be a de lightful pastime, and minder a fine art he would bu w illing to practice for his personal entertainment. When ho wus informed that I wus a resident of New Yolk, he wished to know if the street cars were running over tho tops of the houses yet. 1 told him they were not. "I invented that modu of conveyance," said he. , "Have, tho ears commenced ruuning on tho underground road yclY" hu in quired. I told him that tlio underground road was not yet constructed. "I invented that," he continued. "Is Horucu Gretley ulivo yet?" he asked. I informed him that he was alive and active, nnd the most, useful inuu ot his era It. He wus anxious to know how be looked, uud asked questions of the color of his eyes uud hair, etc Now, ; this nun has beeu nu iuinnto of this institu tion for eight or ten years, much ot the time a raving maniac, tearing his clothes from his person, und threatening tlie life if the attendant who takes cure of bim, nud yet ho seemed to take an interest iu "modern improvements" and prominent men, claiming to be tho inventor of tho former uud acquainted with the latter. In tho cell adjoining bis was another wretched esse of iuim ruble insanity. He seem,; how ever, to be happy, and was constantly siyging matche ot old songs, which ho had learned "in earlier and better day." Iu the upper: apartment of this hospital thcro. were lour or five wo men, n of theiu quiet, and two of them yery fine looking. 1 , - " - 1 1 '. . .

It provides that a nesro shall ffrt to the penitentiary from one lo five years for voting, while a non resident Whito miiu or an unnatural ucil foreigner, for the same offense, Is punished sufllelcnlly if be g es to tho county jail and spcuds from 0110 lo six months there. It also enacts that If a per son Induces a negro to vote bo must atone for his offense by spending from one to five years In, the penitentiary, but If he Induces a non resident to cast a fraudulent vote he can satis fy tho vengeance of the law by spending from one to six months In the county jail: The Mute Juunutl remarks : "Our statiito provides that a non-resident must know that he is an Il legal voter before he can be convicted of ille gal voting, but our Gunoral Assembly says that It Is uol necessary for a negro to know that be is an Illegal voter." Aud this outrage upon the commonest principles of justice, we have no doubt, will he lidmlredaad commend ed by tliree-(iiiirters of those who call them selves Democrats In every State of tho Union. During last fall about fS00,0()0 la counter feit Ilaytien notes were manufactured In New York City, and sent to llayti, where they were placed lu circulation.

The men were employed to do tho work by John Huss. liuss snys that he was employed to prepare the plates by an Admiral in the Ilaytien navy, and that the Admiral's story was to the effect that he had been depu tized to have the work done, by the Govern ment. Ho Implicates three officers in the Ilay tien Government In the transaction. About ((100,000 of the spurious money was put in cir culation In Ilayli, before Its real character was discovered. The note is very poorly executed, and how It escaped detection for so long a time is n mystery. ' Dkath kkom Canckk. A Lansina correspondent of tho Jackson Citizen gives the, following details of the death of a little girl li-om cancer. It is a sin gular caso and a sad one. "Nine mouths ago the daughter of n Mr. Collins, . who lives ueiin I.ensing, Mioh., wns suddenly nfflieted ith u toothache, nnd dispite all efforts at reme dy, the evil increased, nut ill one night tho little 0110 awoke with u piercing scream, holding the bad tooth in her hand. The jiaia contin :ed, however, and, looking lrom the cavity in the gum, a swelling, looking like a la'rgo boil, ap peared there, the thing having grown until it hiul pushed the tooth out of the shekel. From that time the swelling gradually but surely increased in eisse. Medical examination showed it to bo a cancer, and every ell'oit, by lance or otherwise to prevent its growth lias been unavailing. Some time since the little one's mouth was so nearly filled with it lhatt-he had to push her food to her throat with her fingers, and n few days since, the air pipes being closed by the abominable excrescence, tho smothered to death." : . . . Tho JV! 'Y. Times, under the head of "The "Flood-Tido of Emigration," says: ' "The cry is still they come. Probably never in tho history of this country have there been such indication's jf enormous immigration ns now. From nil parts of Germany, particularly from Prussia, and from all parts of Great Britain, and par ticularly from Ireland, tho news is that peasantry and mechanics are emigrating to America in numbers unprecedented. Hremon and Qiieenstowii nre filled with them, and the steamships and packets are unable to accommodate those who apply ; tho companies raise their rates, they charter other boats, but they do not suc ceed iu checking tho pressure of passen gers." ' Isn't it remarkable, the Tfibitne asks ilsfreo trade for there neighbor, that peo plo thus rush to an over-taxed numopoly riddeil country like this, nway from Free Trade regions like British America? nnd that they donU rush hither iu any such numbers wheD wo are enjoying Free Trade ? ; ; Tho Detroit Free Press contains tho following: The first steamer that ever ploughed Lako Michigan was tho Shel don Thompson owner nnd commanded by Cupt. Augustus Walker, a three united boat with a low-prcssu-,o engin.). She took her departure from Buffalo in 1832 with troops on board for the Black Hawk war mid arrived at Chicago July II. A day or two following, three other steamers, tho Henry clnv, Superior and Win. Penn, also iirived with soldiers. On the passage tho cholera made fearful Imvoo among the soldiers on board the different boats, and beforo tleir arrival at their port of destination, no less than eighty-eight died. Tho steamers Ianiel Webster, Monroe, Columbus, Anthony Wayne, Bunker Hill and Michigan Firs't t.-i subsequent years, made trips to that port.
