The Generml Aaaembly hm taken Its first receas ; the Solon hare departed to their homes, and I wander alone through the letrialatiya balls. " I ftwl like one Who tread alone gome banquet-hall deserted. Whose lights nave ned. Whose garland dead. And all bat me departed." Sine I wrote yon last, two or three subjects of general interest have eome up Tor discussion and action, and I take advantage of the idle time of the recess it give you a brief account of the same. The temperance question came up in the House very unexpectedly this wees:. The " Modifiers," as they are called. have been giving out from time to time that they would force the committee to report back the Haag bill. Emboldened by their accession of strength by the change in three members, they com. menced the attack, although they failed in the motion to require the committee to report back. Mr. Bergstresser, the chairman, who had his report all ready. recommending the indefinite postpone ment of the bilL shot his report in. This was getting more than they bargained for ; they were not ready for a vote, and wanted to delay until they eould get in their men. The friends of the Adair law forced the vote then, and the " modifl era" fillibustered to gsin time. They consumed the whole day in dilatory mo ttona ; but the temperance man pressed them step by atep to the wall, inexorably as fate, until Mr. Stanton finally demand ed the previous question, which was sustained. To the surprise of everybody, the Speaker decided that this brought the House to a vote, not on tha question of indefinite postpone a.ent, as Stanton Kupposed and intended, bot on the en grossment of the bill. The vote showed :tor and SO against, absent 22. A mo tion to reconsider was promptly made and voted down, and the " Baag Bill " for modification waa dead as Julia Qe r. The temperance men werejubilant, nd the "modifiers" correspondingly depressed. It is regarded as a decisive vote, and I do not think modification will again be mooted in the House this ses sion. geveral known friends of the present law were among the absentees, which added to the fifty, make a number suffi cient to hold the present law upon the statute book. In the Senate, the ? McDowell bill," which is similar to Haag's bill, waa laid upon the table last session, snd has not been taken up this session. I do not think it can pass in any form. So the friend of temperance may breathe easi er. All credit to the me In both branches who have stood firm and beat baok the hosts of whisk Y and Satan. A bill has been introduced in the House, and passed its first and second readings, creating a Superior Court for Mahoning county, to be located at Toungstown. It is most likely that this is the old fight between Youngstown and Ctnfield on the county seat ques tion revived in new guise. Already the two parties are preparing to send their agents to Columbus to " fight their battles o'er again." What the prospects are of the passage of the bill, I cannot say; but if It is very strongly opposed by the other parts of the ounty, I hard ly think it can be passed. In the Senate. Thnrsdsy, the subject f the interest laws came under general discussion, on the bill or Mr. Putnam to repeal the law allowing usurious interest to be recovered back after payment, but leaving the present law allowing interest to be eight per cent, by eontract un touched. An amendment waa proposed, however, which allows parties free to make such contract for interest as they think proper. The discussion involved the whole question of interest and usury, and afforded the Senators an opportuni ty to give their views on the general sub ject. Among the Senator who participated in the debate on this wfcresMng ques tion were: Putnam, Smith, Hart, Jones of Trumbull, McDowell, Patrick, and Jones of licking. The Tuscarawas Sen ator fPatriok) was particularly ferocious. He waa not In bis seat when the subject ma iu. " but he snuffed the battle from afar," and came in in the midst of the debate, with nostrJsXiistenaea. sns k his mane (i. ., red locks), and dashed thto the thiekeat of the fight. He dis ptaved aaost wonderful historical re search. He began with the money changers; had a passing allusion to Dires: made the usual comparison with hyloek, and wound up with a graphic historv and biography or feint. Jennings.

The Soldier's Bounty Land Bill. The bill which has passed the House of Representatives, providing for giving to each Union soldier of the late war of the rebellion a quarter section of land, is entirely without ssving virtue, in the es timation of the soldier-editor of the Ohio State Journal, who exposes the weak points of the bill very forciblv. In an article on the subject the Journal sa vs : Surely, the House of Representatives did not consider the effect, and the per nicious consequences or ibis measure. The author of that bill must have a spe cial love for the " land-grabbers." It is the most gigantic land-grabbing scheme that the wit of man ever invented. It passes under the name of a soldiers' bounty land act. and purports to benefit the soldier. It is a delusion and a snare : a false pretense ; a swindle and a cheat. It ia to be hoped that a majority of the Eeople'a representatives voted 'for the ill from pore motives; but can it be possible that they were ignorant of the effect of such a law T Did they, knowing u- . e , . " mi cuBtt, t uw iur il iu oruer to curry fayorwilh the soldiers, expecting the Senate to defeat the bill? If so, the arti fice is too gross. The most ignorant sol dier can see through it, and even the most worthless snd corrupt must despise the man who resorts to it. It will take not less than five hundred millions of seres to furnish each officer and soldier with one hundred and sixty acres, mis covers an area more loan twenty times as large as the Stale of Ohio. hen all the public lands in the States of Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minne- aota, Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, Mis sissippi snd Arksnsas have been located under ibis bill, should it become a law, only oue soldier in five (perhaps one in ten) will have received his patent. Where are me tbers to get tbeir lands 7 This bill st one swoop disposes of all the available public lands in the United States, and all that will bocoms available within fifty years or more. No auch Quantity of lands will be demanded for settlement until the population of the United States reaches 100,000,000. Some year ago Congress passed a. homestead law, which hss done much to relieve the poor, stid encourage the settlement of the Western States snd Territories. Un der that act anv citizen can perfect bis title to one hundred and sixty acres of isoa upon condition or nve years' occu pancy and the payment or a nominal mm. This bill effectually repeals that law ; for how can a man settle on the public lands when there are none? cut," say toe advocates of this meas ureor rather the land-crabbers "these lands might as well be divided among the soldiers; we owe them more than we can ever pay." and so foitta. All trne enough, but'tbis is not intended for the soldier's benefit. Kot one soldier in twenty hss the slightest intention of go ing West at present, and ail who do so can get land without any alditional legislation. The land-grabbers under stand this matter to perfection. Force all the public lands on the market at once, ana tne average price will tall to a nominal sum say ten to twenty-five oents per acre, and each aoldier would realize from f 16 to f 10 from this great Congressional " bounty." One half of that, at least, would go to the "attorney" lor niacins; tne location. Already these attorneys" are gathering up discharges. securing written authority to locate, and collecting trotn.f 10 to $20 from each sol dier; and at the same time they are agreeing to find purchasers, at the mar ket rates, as soon ss tha location is made. In abort, unless there is more public virtue, sound sense snd statesmanship in the Senate than has been shown in this matter in the lower House of Congress, the people of the United States will be utterly swindled out of all their public lands ; and two, three, five or ten years hence, if our sons desire to settle in any of the new Slates they can do so by pay ing from $5 to $20 per acre, to the land monopolists, lor laaa wnicn, under ex isting laws, would cost but a trifle : for everybody knows that 95 percent, of all the land located under this bill will be in the hands of the monopolists within a year or eighteen months. That is the meaning snd intent or the proposed law. It mean wholesale robbery, in the name of the- soldiers. Xot ons soldier in a hundred baa asked for any such legisla tion. The government paid the soldiers according to the contract at the time of enlistment, and to their entire satisfac tion. If in equity, there is anything more due them, let provision be' made for payment : but do not. in the name of gratitude and patriotism, make a gam bling state or the heritage or our child ren. There is no class ot men more cap able of taking care of themselves than the soldiers. They have possession of two-thirds of the offices, Rational, State and municipal ; they are our most suc cessful farmers, manufacturers snd traders; and everywhere, west of the Alieghenies at least, they own more than one half of the property of the country. real and personal, ruey do not need this pretended bounty, and do not ask it. To the sober, industrious snd economic al aoldier it is noiliing, and to the vicious, lazy and wi-rtbless it win be a positive njury, as it win lurmsntuem tne means if gratifying their unhealthy appetites for a few weeks. The maimed soldier is entitled to every consideration. If the present pensions are insufficient let them be increased, but let toe taxes be levied to pay it ; but, above all, let us avoidjtll land grant swindles. jr the senata siiouiq nave so nttie re gard for the true interests of the osuntry as to pass this bill, it is to be hoped that the Te"iuent will promptly put nis neg ative upon it- He will never have a bet ter opportunity to earn the gratitudeof the country, and secure the respeetof all true soldiers It is said, and truly said, thai the soldiers saved the country ; and tliey do not now want demagogues and swindlers to ruin it in tbeir name. Destructive Fire at Greenville, Pa. A fire broke out at about 11 o'clock on last Wednesday night in Green ville. Pa. It originated in the rear of the warehouse oi l. j. runaage e dry goods store, located about the center of town. A strong gale was blowing frorn the southwest and in less than half an boijr an entire square was in flames. A hand eugina was brought into requisition, but, it was of no avail. At one o clock four squares in the center of town were on fire and the flying sparks bad ignited a dwelling in the northern part. The scene at two o'clock was terrioie. Families were flitting here and there, while the streets were nued with household goods. Relief soon came from Medville, and by destroying binding tue names were cnecked.

THE ADAIR LIQUOR LAW. Sharp Contest in the House—Bill for an Amendment of the Law Killed. Gazette.] COLUMBUS, O., Jan. 14. made their report to-day on one of the bills Mr. Haag's that were referred to them last winter for the modifies tion ot the Adair liquor law. It pro vided for notice to the liquor seller to desist from the sale before the com- mencementofsuit. They recommend ed the indefinite postponement of the the bill on the ground that only 60,- 000 persons bad asked for the change, wnile 100,000 bad petitioned against any change. 1 be question being on agreeing to the report, Mr. Haag moved to lay it on the table.Lost 30 fx 50. Mr. McFarland moved to postpone the further consideration of the sub ject until the 22d of January. Mr. Ktilwell. of Holmes, moved to amend by substituting the first Tues day of ebruary. Judge Oliver, or Hamilton, asked that debate be not stifled, but that there be a fair discussion. Mr. Stilwelrs motion was lost 29 to 53. A discussion, interspersed with con siderable filibustering, then arose on Mr. McFarland'sirotion, participated in by Messrs. Corcoran, Moore. Mann, Berkstresser, Haag, Waddle, Callen, and Stiles the one side pleading that there ought to be a discussion of the subject, and especially as the large petitions on tne matter, Dotn pro ana con. showed a ueen interest in it on the Dart of the people ; and the other side saying that the people, by their petitions, baa rainy representee tne general feeling in the matter. The vote being tasen on xur. jvic Farland's resolution, resulted, ayes. 3S ; noes. 43. So the House refused to postpone discussion nntii tne Jd or January. More hlibustenug followed this vote. Mr. Corcoran moved to recon sider, and Callen to lay that motion on the table. The latter motion was lost by 30 to 50. Mr. Berry moved to adjourn : lost 30 to 50. A call of the House was ordered. and 83 members answered to their names. Variour other motions were offered, when Mr. Stanton, of Morgan, de manded the previous question, which was ordered by a vote of 47 to 34, the following being the yeas and nays : Ayes Adair, Armstrong, of Bel mont, Armstrong, of Guernsey, Bab- cock, Bay, Berkstresser, Blakeelee, Biwen, Bradbury, Breckenridge, Brown, Burnbam, Chapman, Clyde, Conrad, Cunningham, Curtiss, Ely, Ford, of Geauga, Ford, of Jefferson' Hill, Howland.

The vote was received with expres sions of triumph on the part of those who favored the motion, which was suddenly changed to momentary cha grin and mortification when the Speaker announced that the main question was not opon agreeing to the committee's report ror tne inaennne postponement of the bill, but upon the engrossment of the bill for a third reading, as the motion to indefinitely postpone, being a subsidiary motion, was Itself cut of by the previous ques tion, or rather the previous quesion could not be applied to it. The majority or the House men re fused to order the bill to be engrossed for a third reading, and Mr. Williams of Fayette, moved to reconsider this vote, with a view to naving nis mo tion voted down, so that the question eould not again come up. . Jlere ensued another scene or nil blistering on the part of the minority; because, if Mr. Williams' motion pre vailed, the bill was asefleotually kill ed and discussion as effectually sup pressed as though the motion to agree to the committee's report had at first been carried. In vain the minority struggled; the fiat had rortrj, and Mr. imams motion was lost 32 to 50. THE BEGIXSTXCI. It should be said that the first move made this alternoon was by Mr. Cal len, who moved the discharge of the Temperance Committee. The Speak er declared this motion out of order, and t was not put ; but the sugges tion of it probably precipitated the re port oi the committee. j . o. Notice.

Department, Sept. 3, 1872. The report of the Congressional pro ceedings shows that a bill has passed the National House of Representatives so amending the bounty land law as to au thorise any officer or sfildier of hp la( war, who served ninety days or upward, to locate one hundred and sixty acres of the publio lands, and to receive a patent therefore without any previous occupan cy. He may do this either in person or by "attorney." This bill baa yet to pass the Senate and receive the signaturs of the President, before it can become a law. The Toungstown BcgUter of last week says : "We are informed that a party of young men, hailing from Sharon, Pa., behaved in a very ongentleraanly man ner at a ball given in Vienna, on Tues day evening last. They were armed to the teeth, and exhibited a reckless, blat ant sir, that would do justice to the most denraved rowdy element. Some of them belong to the first families of that place, and should be heartily ashamed of tbeir indecorous conduct.

Confession of Albert W. Chamberlain, the Solon Murderer. The young man, Chamberlain, who was arrested on suspicion of having murdered the old man George McCon noughey, in Solon, on theSth of this month, made an open confession of his guilt. We copy from the Cleve' land Leader of Saturday last: OPEN CONFESSION. Later in the afternoon, in presence of Superperfntendant ecbmitt, Key, L. Cooley, C. B. Lock wood, PresecU' ting Attorney DeWolf, and the father or the accused, Albert . Chamber Iain, the murderer of George McCon- noughey, made his confession. About four o'clock, he was taken from the cell at the Central Station, into the Superintendant's oflice. His face bore marks of internal anguish, and it was evident that his conscience could no longer bear his dreadful burden. He took a seat near the Superintendent, and his father and the reverend gen tleman, plead with him to tell the truth and keep nothing back. Before proceeding to make his confession be was told that he could hope for no benefit from it, and that it would not lessen the penaly; and furthermore. that he must expect all be said to be given as evidence against him at the trial. With this understanding he commenced forthwith to make the following statement : I arrived at Solon from Chattanooga where 1 had been employed by my Uncle Hiram Chamberlain, on Christ mas day, having left the latter place ou the 23d of December. When I came home I intended to stay, and not go back South. I was expecting to worK on tne lann witu mv father. I found a boy, Louis Lehman, in the employ or my father, and giving good satisfaction. I did not wish to have him' discharged, and therefore made up my mind to return South. In con versation with the boy one day, he told me that the old man George Mc- Connoughey was living alone in his nut, and as it was a retired place, and he was known to have some money about him, he (Lehmau) was afraid he would be robbed and murdered some day. Question Was the bov Lehman in any way implicated in the murder? Answer lie was not. He Knew nothing of it until after the act was done. About 10:30 in the evening of the Sth inst., after all the other inmates had retired, I got up from bed, went to the cheese bouse and got the old Enfield rifle and some amunitiou, un locked the door and went out. Our bouse is about half a mile from the hut. When half way down the road, I stopped and loaded the rifle. I put in three balls. I then went on towardi- the hut. When I arrived there, I saw Mr. McConnouirhev through the win dow, sitting near the fire place, in a side waya position with his back to wards me. ltnout any delibera tion. I took my stand in the snow. aimed and fired. I didn't stop to see the result, bat returned home as fast as possible. 1 put the rifle back in the cueese room, ana again went to bed. The next morning after breakfast. I went with my father to the house of my grand father, opposite the but of McConooughey to do the chores. My grandfather was away on that day. When my father was engaged about the stable, I slipped across the road, broke open tna door or tne nut and found McCon noughey lying on the floor partly burnt. The fire was out. I tore out the pocket of his pants and took therefrom two pocket books. Putting them in my own pocket l went hack to my grandfather's, and opened them. Tbey contained the sum or iiZ, in one twenty dollar bill, three tens, and the rest in' fives, and ones. There was some loose change besides. I put the money in my own pocket book, and went home. Going into the sitting-room, 1 threw tne two pocket books from which I bad taken the money, into the stove. In answer to a question as to wheth er there was any other person in the room when be burnt tne boons, be said the old lady was, then he shut the stove door so that the smell of burnt leather would not reach the nostrils of the old lady. He then says that on Friday he gave the three ten dollar bills to the boy Lehman to go to Chagrin Falls and buy several articles. He was. to bring back the change in small bills. Chamberlain says he destroyed the remainder of the money. (Jut or the change Dro'l back by the boy, he paid some debts that he owed. The question was asked what im pelled him to do the deed. He replied that he did it "in a single moment," and that if be had stopped to reflect he wouldn't have done it. He says be now feels much relieved in mind and conscience, and feels as well as any body in his condition could feel. The prisoner informed oue of his visitors that when he was arrested he bad thirty two dollars in his pocket, the possession of which caused him much trouble. The lining of his coat was torn about the sleeve, and he managed to slip the money iuto the hole and let it slide down in the sleeve lining until it reached the wrist. Im mediately after his incarceration he took this money, which consisted of oue twenty, two fives and two ones, and, chewing in very fine, swallowed it. His fear of lla discovery was so great that be ate the bills. un Friday morning tne prisoner was arraigned before the Police Court, where he waived au examination and was committed to bail. In the after noon he was conveyed to the county jail. Mr. unaomeriaiu nas ruaueims con fession will) ft full consciousness of the effect it must have. Before ma king it he decijoed and sunk so rapid ly that death seemed in a fair way to relieve the community of the trouble of giving him a trial. Since be first uttered a word or confession be has enjoyed a peace of mind which Is. a heaven compared to ms former toi lures. He now eats heartily, sleeps well and feels contented to meet whatever fate awaits him. He was told by his spiritual advisor that he must prepare for the worst, that he bad tekep a bumau life, and that be must giva bis own life in return there for. To this he gave his full content and made his confession in tbout the same spirit that a man makes bis will. His oonfeafilon will astonish no one in Solon or in that neighborhood, where it was generally believed that be was guiltv. This impression was not created by the past character of the prisoner, but from many facts and rumors circulated concerning his coo duct after the murder. The man's life has always been upright and moral and he has ever been eurroun dtd witb the best of influences, ex cept during a few months that be was in Chattanooga. There he save be waa thrown into very bad society and his early teachings were for the time ellaeed from his mind. Among the witnesses appearing be fore the Credit Mobilier. investigating committee, a few days ago, we observed the name of our Representative, Gen, Garfield, whose testimony we reproduce on the first page oi this paper. The reader will observe that the General was not in anywise or degree connected witb or implicated in the affair of the Pacific R. R. Ring, known as the Credit Mobil ier, or anything of that kind. i n iji -The first fight, of the present session of the Ohio Legislature over the ques tion of the repeal of the Adair liquor law, occurred a few days ago, and re sulted in a victory for the temperance party, who defeated the Haag bill, which provided for a modification of the pres ent law.

A Battle with the Modoes. U . - . T 1 E7d. rnAiigrv. Jan. ZU. A ma. patch from Yreka to-day states that a messenger baa just arrived at that place from the headquarters of Gene ral Wheaton, commanding the troops in the action against the Modoc Indi ans. A severe battle was fousrbt last Frl day. The troops under the command of Wheaton consisted of two hundred andfitty regulars, two companies of uregon volunteers, tweuty-Uve Cali fornia riflemen, commanded by Cap tain Faircbild, and a few Klamoth In dians, altogether about 400 men. The battle took place near the eastern shore or rule Liake. un Thursday, Captain Bernard went around the north end af the Lake to the east side, and to the east of Captain Jack's position. He was to advance against Captain Jack from the east, and Gen. Wheat on from the southwest, the forces of tne latter to ie under cover or the fire of the howitzers. Thursday night sue u a dense fog enveloped the coun try that they could not see forty yards. The two forces were then about twelye miles apart, though to communicate rith each other it was necessary to go a mucu greater distance. Friday morning Captain Bernard opened the battle against Captain Jack, who had about two hundred warriors concealed among the rocks along the line, two mnes in lengtn. Oeneral Wheaton heard the firing, but bad no alterna tive but to move to the aid of Captain Bernard, without the fire of the how itzers. TLe troops f.-ucht the unseen toe from eight in the morning till it was dark, under a terrible Are, during wuicu scarcely one ludianwas seen. The loss to the troops was forty killed and wounded. The loss of the Modocs is unknown. The troops were obliged finally to retreat to their camp. Ber nard's force bore the brunt of the bat tle and suffered terribly. AH the cav alry fought on foot. Among the killed were Frank Trimble and J. R. Brown of Oregon. G. W. Roberts was mor tally wounded ; Captain Perry, of the regulars, seriously ; Lieutenant Kyle, slightly. The movement is called a forced reconnoissance of CaDt Jack's position. The leaders eav it will take one thousand men to dislode bim from the lava beds.

There is a variety of opinion respecting the value of coun ty papers, as there is a variety of intel lectual development among men. The Cincinnati Trade Lift expresses its feelings in a very concise manner : 'A gentleman writes to na that his county paper is so poor that he has stopped taking it, therefore sends as three dollars for the Trade List. We re peat that we don't want subscribers on those terms, A man'a county paper is worth more to him than auy other paper in the world, or if it is not it ia his own fault. ir the county paper is properly encouraged, it may be relied npon for in formation of mure value to the people in whose interest it is issued than can be found in all the city papers in the Uni ted States. Xo man can afford to stoa the paper that publishes the official ad vertisements cf his county, the publio sales, markets, court news and all other local intelligence. II the paper is poor the people are more at fault than the publisher, for not giving liberal patron age. However poor the county paper may be, it is always worth more than it costa lo those interested in the affairs of its locality. The main features of Senator Sher man' bill to retarn to specie payment, as reported by the Senate Finance Com mittee, are: The direction to the Secre tary of the Treasury, on and after Janu ary 1, 1874. to redeem United States notes on presentation, in gold coin, or, at his option, in United States five per cent. bonds of convenient denomination j the removal, from the 1st f July next, of the limit of the circulating notes of Na tional banks, and the exemption of such banks as redeem their circulating notes in csin or legal tender notes of the Uni ted States from tba requirements as to reserve made by existing laws.

The New Castle, Pa., papers of last week acknowledge that there have been at least twelve deaths from amall-pox in that town, and that there are about twenty-five persons now alck witb the same disease. The majority of the cases thus far have been outside of the business portion of the town. Nothing like a panic exists among the people, howev er, as has been reported. " Frofc Loomis, of Yale College, reports In the College Cburant the weather in New Haven as having been colder, with two exceptions, during December, than in the corresponding month for ninety three years. The mean temperature was 22.8 degrees. The mean temperature of December, 1831, was 17.2 degrees, and of the same month, in 7W, 22.4. The Clinton Cburant, in noticing the killing of a lance gray eagle, says: " Some people seem to take great measure in kill nir all rue Deautiiui and the noble birds, as if the Almighty made a grand mistake in giving them an existence. The harmless, Inno cent animals and birds have a right to life and happiness derived from higher authority tban any which man can claim in depriving them of either lif or freedom."

Statistics of the Race. earth Is inhabited by about 1.3S0 millions inhabitants, viz: 380,000,000 of the Caucasian race ; 580,000,000 of the Mongolian ; 200,000,000 of the Ethiopian : 820,000,000 of the Malay races ; 1.000 000 of the American Indian. All these respectively speak 3,064 languages, and possess 1,000 different religions. The amount of deaths per anum is 33,383,333, or 91,954 per day, 3,730 per hour, 60 per minute, or oue per sec ond. This loss is compensated by an equal number of births. The average duration oriife through out the globe is thirty-three years. One fourth of its nomilntii.n die h. fore the seventh year, and one-half ueiure toe seventeenth. Out or 1,000 persons only one reaches bis hun dredth year; only one in five hundred his eightieth ; and only one in one hundred his sixty-fifth. Married people live longer than un married ones, and a tall mau is likely to live longer than a short one. Until the fifty-fifth year, women have a better chance of life than men ; but beyond that period the chances are equal. Sixty-five persons out of one thou sand marry. The months of June and December are those in which marriages are most frequent. Children born in the spring are gen erally stronger than those born in other seasons. Births and deaths chiefly occur at night. The number of men able to bear arms is but one-eighth of the population. IMPORTANT TO HORSEMEN.
