Hendricks, of Iudianna, fjr President, which is said to have cre ated quite an indignant feeling among ihe friend? of Gov. Tilden, of N. Y. It 5s claimed by the supporters of Tilden that he is the only m-tit who can carry New York for the Democrats in the nest i Presidential contest and that it is im possible for them to elect a President without that State. The .following bill which is of great importance to many people in this State was j)assd in the U. S. Senate last Fri day by a vote ot -II to 1): lie it enacted bj the Seattle and House of Jlqirexentatiees of the United Mates uj America, in Coiiyrcts Ataembted, That ail preemption ana homestead .entries, or entries in compliance with any lawol tlie United States of the public lauds, made ,in good faith by actual settlers, upon .tracts' of land of not more than lb'0 acres each, within tho limits of any land grant prior to the time when notice ot the withdrawal of the lands embraced in such grant was received at the local land olticc of the district in which such lands are situated, or after their resto ration to market by order of the Gcncr.il Laiid office-, and where the Pre emption and Homestead laws have been complied with, and proper proofs thereof have been made by the parties ho'lditig such tracts or parcels, they shall be confirmed, and pitentsfor the same shall issue to the parties entitled thereto. sec. 2. That when at the time of such withdrawal cs afore-aid, a valid pre emption or homestead claim existed upon any lands within the limits of any such grarits which afterwards were abandoned and under the decisions and rulings of tho Land Department, were rc-entcfed pre-emption or homestead claimants, who have complied with the laws governiii" preemption or homestead entries, or shall make the proper proofs required .under fctieli laws, such entries shall be deemed valid, and naterits shall issue therefor to the person entitled thereto. Sec '3. Tint all such pre-emption and home-stead entries, which nlay have been made by permission of the Land Department, or in pursuance of the rule1 and instructions thereof, within the limits of any laud grant, at a time sub sequent to expirations of such jrrant, shall be deemed valid, and a compliance with ihe laws and the making of the proof roq ui red shall entitle the holder of Mich claim to a patent therefor. Is the case of McKee. charged with having conspired with the whisky ring to defraud the government, the jury returned a verdict of ''guilty." Persons vho were reading the daily report of the .trial were somewhat surprised at the verdict as the general opinion seemed to be that he would he acquitted. The charge to the jury by Judge Dillon is said to liavo been very favorable for the .defendant, and a new trial will probably be granted A HEAVY gale prevailed all along the Eastern coast and in the Kastcrn and Lrgislalno Suutnury. IK.oni thcTo;.e'ca Coiiinuriueillh On the 2Slh iust. tho fcomito invested considerable lime in discUnsing 11. B. .No. XI, in lel.ilion to terms of court in aiui boundaries of the Olh and lOiii judicial districts. The bill was liuaily sjut lu. Ihe judiciary committee. S. l. No. d was also talked about. It repeals the provision ot tlie law which allows the owi!i!r of iirotwrrtv iviiieh has bpin hid in 4 , rf fjLiTJ lor taxes by ths county, and lieuy's"1. of the afternoon, and finally a substitute otlered by Mr. Glick was recommended for pas-age. The substitute prdrides that suits shall. only bo co'iuneueed for the recovery of any portion of tho pur chase money which is unpaid,. and that the title shall remain in the purchaser. The purchase money recovered (if any) we presume is intended to be turned over to the school fund. The House held a night session of some four hours, and discussed in com committee of the whole three bills. The committee recommended the passage of U..U. Ao. v, to legalize tueassessment ot a certain tax by the commissioners of Bourbon county; and also recommended the substitute for II. B. No. 8, for the relief of the tax payers of Elk county; and also H. Bl No. IS, to amend an act entitled an net relating to the organiza tion new counties. The greater part ofjthe session was occupied in the dis cussion of tliis bill, which makes radical and important changes in the present law: The Senase on Tuoday took up in committee ol the whole .dr. ll.itileniiau's S. IS. No. 10, providing for a bounty on locusts eggs. The suuject was treated with considerable mure seriousness than was displayed on its first discussiou. Tlie bill was considerably amei.ded', though its main features were preserved, and it was recommended for passaire. S. B. No. :2, requiring plaiutitls in civil ac tions to give security lor costs, was rec ommended for passage. S. It. No. SO, a bill providing lor increasing the number of branches taught in common schools was recommended lor rejection, and "'readin,' 'ritin', and 'rithmetic" will continue to be the staples. In the Hou'-v communications were received from Hon. Alfred Gray, in rela tion to the cost of additional copies, of tho Agricultural iteport for 187o, and from lion. Thomas II. Cavanaugh in re gard to the sale of State lands'. An at tempt was made to limit the length of speeches in committee ol the whole. Various terms were proposed. Mr. West thought a member should be allowed to talk as lona as "it tasted good to him," and the fire minutes limit (the finance question b&ing excepted) failed of a two thirds vote. Substitute for II. B. No. 5, providing for the institution of legal proceedings to test (he constitutionality of an act pro viding for the sale of public lands to aid in the construction of certain railroads, approved February 2:, 180(5, by Mr. Stevens, was read a third time and passed bv a vote of G4 to 11. The House subsequently refused to reconsider the vote. Ayes 15,- uavs 53. II. B. No. 9. to legalize a certain tax levy in Barton county, failed to pass. Aves 47. navs 51. In committee of the whole a bill in relation to mortgages, etc., was debated at considerable length, and the com-nitteo reported on. At night the House had a financial debate. In the Senate, on Wedhesday, the grasshopper bill was passed IS to 0. It allows a county bounty of $5.00 a bushel for locust eggs with a proportional al lowance for fractional parts of a bushel. S. B. 07 a bill extending the scope of the exemption law, was recommended for rejection in committee of the whole. In tlie House a communication was received from the Governor, tho sub stance bf which is, that the Legislature has some authority aml has some duties to perform as well as the Governor, and that if the legislature desires to have criminals nnr-ecuted it should clothe the Governo" with authority to act.

There is such a thing as making laws in advance of public sentiment, which is useless, but we favor as utriu .gent a law as can be enforced for the protection of the birds.

' ' LANDERS, of Indiana, says that he has been trying tor two mouths to 1)3 hetrd that he might introduce a financial reso lution, bin Speaker Kerr has failed to recognize him. In choking ol! this mem ber with his financial resolution the Speaker has acted wisely. Landers, however, threatens to call an inflation convention at Indianapolis and get up a division among the.

It was proposed to expel him, to reprimand him, to depose him from the chairmanship of the committee on railroads, and it was dark ly hinted that he was liable to imprison ment. At last .Mr. Aldrich was allowed to make a written apology to be .spread upon tlie record and then the sheet lightning ceased to play around the sky and the live thunder ceased to leap from peak to peak. After the crucifixion of Aldrich the House proceeded to the dis cussion of II. B.

We have no evidence that this action of a few peisous is counten anced or encouraged by the people of Humboldt generally, or ot Allen county, and eelieve that they are not disposed to open a discussion on this question. When a strip of our county on the north was taken lrom us and added to Allen county, the most solemn pledges made by the chief property holders and repre sentative citizens of Humboldt that such action forever settled the question as regarded these two counties and was lin.il iu all respects. Yet in the face of this agreement we see parties, circulating apctitiou in the interest ofllumboldtask ing that a still larger slice than before be taken from our county for the benefit of that city. And we are asked to quiet ly 'submit to this so that Humboldt may Iks in a better position to obtain the comity eat. We hardly think our peo ple will. We don t believe that any thinrr near a majority, of the names of people living on thisstripcan be obtained to such a petition. We are quite sure the people on this strip are satisfied that countv lines should remain as tuey arc. And we would further suggest that if this question is at all urged, there is a possibility that this county might take such action as would cause tlie restora tion of the strip heretofore taken from us, and perhaps annex a two or three mile strip besides.
