Annexation*' ber
Tbe area embraced within the corporate lim- Ftr
its of Chicago will comfortably contain half a ooi
million of population. But tbe Dyer Charter J 0 c j
proposes to annex something less than one
third of Cook county to it.
The point of tbe joke is, that consent of the
people to be 4, u.ken ia" and taxed has not been Bhl
obtained; ror have the modest gentlemen con
descended to ask the citizens of Chicago wbetb- glo|
er they desired to extend the boundaries of tbe
citv over tbe etigtbering townships. We
wouid suggest as an amendment that tbe corpo- Coj
rate jurisdiction of this city be extended over Kid
the Second Congressional District. ga,

Four Mayors,
Uuu« , r Tom Dyer ? s charter the city is to
have four Miyors ! The present duties of the
Mayor are to be performed by three other
Mayors, to be called <, Commi*«ionery J and
all lour are to be under pay. The one that
retains the num-j of Mayor is deprived of tl *
every particle ol" executive authority, but is Wl
to receive pvr year to support the dig- p S
nluj of the office. The other ti't eeMayors are lo
to attend to tlie police performed Jc
by the Mayor ; for which s-crvice they will
divide between th"ir Honors about SIO,OOO of
' rc
taxes, p-„T annum.
The people ar- graciously penujited to
iUct the Mf.yor ho lets nothing to do ; but q]
the other three .Mayors ar«- to be appointed, lo
for tliercason we suppo>e that the jieople arc l' c
not competent to make proper selections— aj
that is, they might not happen to elect the 01
three patriots who have phmeed these pleas- ct

Agricultural Statistics. a!
A bill is nobefore the Legi>lature of ic
Michigan jirovidiug fur ascerlaining tlie an- M
nual creal jiroduets of that State, and our jj (
correspondent at Lansing writes that it is oi
very popular with the? members, and will pase w
without c.ppoMtiou. Ohio and lowa have ri
each experienced the a«lvautages »»f such a
la»\%audthe people of these States would
not be deprived oi it for uny consideration. 61
It only remain-: for Illinois, Wisconsin and
liiuiana to follow^ the fxatnple, and as the
L<*"Ma!urcs of the-e States are now in ses- °
>ion, we fiueeiely irunl a similar law will be
enacted by each before adjourning. b
A law of tliirf kind can Ij-j executed witu- t |
out throwing any additional expense upon T
the Treasury. Iu Ohio an<l lowa it is made £
the duty ot tlie a!-«ejs.>rs to procure the iu
formation wished, and this is: dune without
any material increase of their labors. Let
the three Slates named make a similar pro- £
vision, and hereafter we .-hill know by Au- *i
gust or September «»f eueh year the number *
of acres of wheat, corn. oats, barley, rye, 11
etc., iu th" Northwestern States. Such knowl- £
edge would teud to keep down speculation in o
grain, and would enable larmcrs to dispose of c
their crops without being itnpo>ed upon by 1
sharper? - .
The Proposed Aggressions on Mexico— c
Mr. Allison's Itill. r
The following are the details of the important v
bill introduced on Tuesday by Mr. Mason of j
Virginia, from tbe Committee on Foreign Rela- t
liods, authorizing the President of the United f
States to use the public fcrce of the United *
States in the cases therein provided : [
Whereas, ihe President of tbe United States,
in tbe discharge of the duty imposed on bim by t
the Constitution, from time to time to give to
Congress information of tbe state of tbe Union,
and to recommend t3 their consideration such
measures as be shall judge necessary and expe
dient, has informed that, by reason of 1
the distracted and revolutionary condition of i
Mexico, ot cerlbin of tbe States of Central <
America, aud occasionally of those in 1
South America, as well tbe property as tbe f
lives and liberties of American citi- '
zens, peaceably and carefully witbin J
their reapectivc limits, are subjected to law- <
ies»iviolence, or otherwise placed in peril by
those claiming to be iu authority, and for re- >
dress thereof negotiation and remonstrance, in i
the forms of diplomatic intercourse, *re attempt- i
cd in vain; and it being manifest to Congress i
tbat such condition of things in tbe States afore
said will continue so long as government is <
found tbere in tbe unsettled and irreponsible
condition at present, and at times heretofore
tolerated by their people; and it being tbe in
dispensable duty of tbe government of tbe
United States to proiect its citizens ogainst law
less violence without tbe limits oi ibe United
Stutes, wherever loundon lawful errand ; there
lit it enacUd, d~c. t That whenever it shall be
made to appear to the President any citizen
or citize&s of the Uoited States have been sub
jected, witbin the limits of any of tbe States
aforesaid, und without commensurate offence on
their part, to any act of force on tbe part of
those claiming to be in authority therein, affect
ing tbe lite or liberty ot aucb citizens, and tbe
case, in tbe opinion of tbe President, demands
on bis port tbe interposition hereinafter provid
ed, it shall be lawlui tor tbe President to use
tbe land and naval forces of the Untied Slates,
or such part ot tbem as h* may deem requisite,
in such way as in bis judgment may be most ef
fectual, by force, wituin the counirv so offend
ing, to give full and adequate relief sod pro
tection to any citizen or citixtns of the
United States so injured or imperiled,
and at bis discretion to obtain redress
lor any wrong ao done; Provided, That
tbe President shall report lo Congress (if in
session, forthwith, or if in recess, at its first
meeting thereafter) whatever may be done by
bim tit any ticne in tbe execution of this act.
And provided farther. That as soon as tbe ob
ject tball be obtained iu any case where the
provisions of this net shall be carried iuto exe
cution, tbe land and naval forces so used shall
be withdrawn.

the Judiciary Committee, who reported them
back this afternoon ; one of tliem was laid on
the table, and the Committee's substitute for li
the otber was laid on tbe table to be printed, w
Tbe substitute elicited a warm and lively dis- •
cussion in which Messrs. Blaisdell, Mack, Green,
Peck, Butz, and others participated. L
Mr. Davis, of Montgomery, introduced a bill b
for tbe permanent location of tbe Illinois State |,
Agricultural and Mechanical Fair. It appropri.

i'j.uOi), for tbe year 1557, in tbe course of which
Mr. Swett and Mr. Hurlburt, two of tbe most .
talented members of tbe House, "locked horns." i
Some able speeches were made. Messrs. Hurl- <
burt and Korton opposed the bill upon the j
ground tbat it would establish a dangerous pre
cedent. It was ordered to be engrossed. '
After having some fun over a bill to change i
tbe names of two persons, tbe Honse adjourned. ,
New Counterfeit*
A new and unusually well executed counterfeit
three dollar bill on, tbe National Bank of lili-
nois, at Equality, has just appeared. It is ex
ceedingly well calculated to deceive, and will be •
likely to prove extensively successful m this re. i
gion. Tbe plate appears to be one altered from
a counterfeit on tbe National Bank of Rhode
Island, and the bill has on it the Bhode Island '
coat of arms, an anchor.
We are advised tbat these bills are jnst is
sued, and that scarcely any of thera can yet be
in the bands of honest persons. Any one offer,
ing tbem should be at once arrested, as snch &
step may lead to a detection of tbe principals to
tbe attempted fraud in this city.—ispringji<ld

complaint of the Rev. Dr. Eddy, charged with F
stealing a boiler, door*, forks, spoons, &c., g

ney and Henry Bruning, were arrested Satur- a
day for violating the game laws, they having in q.
their possession a lot of prairie chickens, which
they offered for sale. It was proved tbat tbe

The JrarnitTZ Case.—The trial of Ilenry Jum. a

ia this city some mouths since, best and most
widely remembered as the case where the remains
of tbe deceased were found packed in a barrel,
which bad been shipped to New York, has been
sot down for trial on Monday of next week. 11
Messrs. Van Buren and McComxs appear for the
, n
£3* We learn that a few nights since as one f
of M-jores Police was pacing through o
Li.salle street, he heard water drippiug in li e r
store of 11. C. Livingston. Mr. Moore concluding t
all was not right, learned the proprietor's res> v
dottreand sent immediately for him, who on ccm- f
ing over feuud the wafer pipe had burst in the v
second story, and in a short time it would ba\e
ruined a largettock of flonr. Thus by the prompt, p
ness of Mr. Moore, a few dollars will cover tl e t
damage. c
AatiE&TED tor Adcltcry.—Dr. William Gu!- c
lick and Emma E. Packer, were arrested cn g
Friday afternoon and brought before Justice x
Akin on a charge of adultery. The arrest, we f
believe, was mude oa the complaint of the bus- (
band, of the lady, who it will be recollected was G
arrested tbe day before for an outrageous as-
sault on Mrs. Packer in tbe street, and also for
threatening ber life, and was fined $25 on tbe j
first charge, a-d heldin {4OO on tbe other. Dr. j
Gullick wus a witness in the threatening case, j
The parties were held in S2OO for examination. .
Tun Reform School for Girls.—We ate i
glad a definite move is being made in a direction* 1
long j-ince and often urged in and through our
columns, in the matter of a *'lief arm School for
Girls, 1 ' to which end petitions aie now in circuit- (
tion among our citizens, which we are confident «
will find syuipatlrzsrs amoug our City Fatheis- I
Let the same beneficent plan be adopted for the <
little homeless, friendless girls ot cur city that has $
wrought the noble result among tbe boys, in the
institution now uuder the charge of Mr. Nichols, i
Let us have this Asylum and home for the little <
hapless ones who may be moulded into pests or
: bles-iogs to their race, according as they be left to :
the evil influences of the alley and the street, or "
taken in hand by a wise and liberal Christian
philanthropy. :
Savagb Assault.—A most s&vage and brutal
assault was perpetrated yesterday by A. R. Ladd
upon Henry Richmond, at the Metropolitan Ho>
tel. It appeared in evidence before Justice
Akin tbat tbe parties had previously had some
slight misunderstanding. They met yesterday
in tbe bar-room of the Metropolitan, when Ladd
threw off his coat and asked Richmond to drink
with him, in & pleasant manner. While they
were drinking, some words passed, when Ladd
struck Richmond a violent blow over the eye
with a tumbler, and then " pitched into " him
in a savage and brntal manner, trying to gouge
out his eye, and also threatening to have his
heart's blood. Ladd was seized by the bystand
ers and given into tbe hands of the Police. He
was taken before Justice Akin, who fined him
$25 and required him to give bonds in S2OO to
keep the peace.
A "Sass Cullotte" ox ms Travels.—A
few evenings since, at a rather late hour, &
young man appeared at the door of one of our
most respectable citizens, in a decidedly primi
tive Co6'.ume, consisting of a single muslin gar
ment, and rung tbe door bell with great vio
lence. Tbe gentleman of the bouse appeared at
an npper window and demanded to know wbat
tbe intruder, in his unseemly costume, and at
unseemly hour of the night, wished. Tbe re
sponse was that he was pursued by several
formidable ruffians, who wished to wreak doe
vengeance npon him for the crime of ruining a
yonny lady who was & relative of his by mar
riage, and begged of the gentleman to admit
him without delay. This was of course refused,
as he seemed hardly in a proper costume to be
admitted into the presence of a family; but he
was referred to the Police Station near at hand.
The yonng .gentleman started for tbe Station,
at the top of his speed, greatly frightening a

The Chicago Athletes at Metropolitan*
Hall.—We cannot allow an inadvertence of our
lut issue to be repealed to the extent of
, omitting the justice due to the Gymnastic Ex
hibition at Metropolitan Hall on Fridayievening,
on which occasion, in the presence of a numer
* ous concourse of spectators, the athletes trained
e nnder the competent charge of H.G. OUignon,
at his Rindolph street Gymnasium, gave an en
tertainment which was of a very high order of
B merit and won warm applause,
e The (literally) exercises were handsomely and ,
0 well introduced by a brief, happy and pertinent
k address appropriate to the occasion by Charles
L. Thomas, Esq., which did him high credit in
manner and matter.;
The gymnastic exercises which followed were
)l each and all an argument in favor of the physical
d training which in a high degree they exhibited.
£ The performers in astonishing and marvellous
feats of agility and strength, were our own young
men, clerks, students and young professional men,
wbo bad thus gained, nnder Prof. Ottlgnon, tbe
k goond body—ever an accompaniment to the sound
mind—which alone can give to the latter its fullest
usefulness. We have a thousand proprietors of
er puny and weakly thews and sinews, who wonld
pe the better for a coarse st the Gymnasium.
In the Circuit Court the case of Michael Mc-
Namee, on trial for tbe murder of hia wife, in
this city, on tbe 2d of Jnly, 185S, was given to F
the jury on Friday, about 5 o'clock P. M., the
Court adjourning to 8 P. M., to give an oppor
tunity for their discharge, should the jury by
that time have agreed npon their verdict. C
Long before the honr last named, hundreds
ot persons were in waiting in the hall of the
Coort House, and at 8 o'clock the Court room &(
was crowded as daring the day, to hear the an- 1E
nouncement of the verdict. McNames is of a °'
higher grade «f intellect and feeling than his B
immediate predecessor, Finn, and with an in- G
crease of tbe anxiety which has sat npon his tl
features daring tbe trial, he awited.the verdict S
to him of snch fearful moment But tbe jury t{
hud not ngreed, and after a few moments delay k
the Court was adjourned to Saturday morning
at 9 o'clock. it
At tbe opening of the Court on Saturday it c
was again annouocad that the jury were unable
to agree, and the delay told appreciably npon H
tbe hopes and spirits of McNamee and his 11
Tbe Barry case was proceeded with, the fore- *
noon being occupied with getting a jury. &
At the opening of the afternoon session, how-
ever, it was made known that thej jury were
ready for their verdict and McNamee was again
brought into Court. The jury entered their
seats, were called, and then amid a silence al-
most painful to tbe ear, when the spectators end j
all present held their breath, tbe little slip of
paper was passed from the foreman of the jury J
to tbe Clerk of the Court.
It was a moment of powerful sensation when
tbe silence was broken by tbe verdict of
" Gctiltt OF Mohoes." *
The unfortunate convict, McNamee, was power
fully affected, and Biriy, bis successor in the j,
prisoners btx, on a like fearful charge, seemed c
scarcely less &o. A3 the former was again con- n
ducted to his cell, the strength of both officers a
in charge was required to sustain his fainting foot- g
steps. He is now the second convicted murderer
awaiting sentence in our jail, where three others
are awaiting trial on a like charge.
When the first of these trials, that of Michael tl
Finn, came on, the five separate defendants to *o tl
grave a charge were, it is said, in the best of
spirits, by dint of keeping each other's courage j
up. The first conviction, uow followed immedi- f;
alely by tbe second, is said to have justly struck 8
gloom into the hearts of those yet to come before £
this Court. n

ot a similar accident. -
On Thursday afternoon last, three interesting c
little one?, children of Col. Hotchkiss, residing c
at No. 275 South Clinton street, in tbe Wes* J
Division, Frank and Fred, twins, aged three c
year?, and Jessie aged two years, were all sad- i

physician was summoned and simultaneously by x
dilfuient persons,-ttid Drs. Kirk, llahn, lind Rey- j
nolds were on the spot in a very short time—the {
former first arriving. The case was pronounced
one of poisoning, aud it was found tbat the child- .

recommendation, camphor was added. Within '

City Fuie Insckance Coup any, of Hartford,
C.-jnn.—'We find, in a late number of the Hartford
Courant, the subjoined notice of the above Insur
ance Company. It needs no endorsement in Ibis
city,« here it has for several years done an exten
sive and, to its customers, a satisfactory business.
Yet coming from Hartford, where its officers and
its condition are 50 well known, it is calculated to
confirm tbe reputation the Company has earned.
We are glad to find in u distant paper an article
at once so complimentary and appreciative of onr
enterprising fvllotv citizen, Mr. Lonnsbury. He
has won his way to well d.-served distinction as
an underwriter. As a local underwriter in Chi
cago he bas built up a business which in extent is
hardly equaled in ihe country. In this, his new
field of labor. Lis energy and business tact have
more extended scope, and we are not surprised to
learn that, under his more immediate management,
the business of tbe ab jve Company is very rapidly
growing in the West.
It will be seen by an advertisement in another
column, that the agent of the Company for Chi
cago is that experienced underwriter, C. N. Hol
den,Esq. Under such management, general and
local, success will be tlie natural result.
The following Is the article from the Courant:
We call attention to the January exhibit of
the "City Fire Insurance Company," in our ad
vertising columns, and are pleased to notice sat.
isfactory evidence of its improved condition and
increasing prosperity. Its business, since the
inaugaraiion of its present officers, and increase
of capital ia Jaly last, has increased in a ratio
far exceediog the most aanguine expectations
of its managers, and tally confirms oar predic
tions ot its success, made at that time.
We understand the present policy of tbe com
pany is to divide only moderate dividends, re
taining a portion of its earnings antil an ample
rc-iiuuranci food shall be added to the capital,
and we can confidently recommend its policies
to persons seeking insurance, knowing tbe com
pany to bo one among the most reliable and
prosperous institutions of onr city.
The company is fortunate in having secured
as its General Agent for the Western Depart
ment, W. B.Loucsbury, Esq., of Chicago, 111.,
who is favorably known as an Indefatigable
worker, of much skill and experience in all the
details of underwriting. Under bis manage
ment for tbe past nine months, this company
has greatly extended its Western agencies, and
with gratifying success.

Fiee Coupames Nos. 3 and s.—The follow
ing is the report of tbe Committee in the Coun- *
cilon Fire aud Water, which had the subject > °
nnder advisement, in relation to the obstructions
and impediments pat in the way of the ste&m b
fire engines Enterprise, Atlantic and Island |
Queen, by companies Nos. 3 and 5, when on e
their way to fire: o
' That, by investigating tbia matter, they find
that on tbe night of the 11th of Sept. 1853, as 0
the steam tire engine Enterprise was proceed- 8
ing to & tire on South Canal street, they over
took No. 3*B engine, the members of which let 8
down their brakes and then ran their machine I
from one aide ot the street to tbe otber in such |-
a manner as to prevent tbe Enterprise from 13
passing tbem, thus delaying the arrival of the ?
steamer in getting to tbe fire. And on tbe .
morning of the 22d of September, when the
i steam Lre engine Atlantic was proceeding to a j 1
i tire on South Canal street, tbey also overtook 1
No. B's engine, and the members Berved them 8
in the same way as in tbe case ot the Enterprise. r
And on the night of tbe 27th of November, as c
the steam fire Engine Lland Quten was proceed
ing to a fire in block 60, in Russell, Mather & 1
Roberts' Addition, i>he overtook company No.
s's engine on Canal street; they also letdown D
their brakes and got their boss carriage beside P
them to prevent tbe steamer from passing them,
thus preventing them both from getting to tbe f
fire in time to do any service. This, in tbe 13
opinion of your committee, is an act on the part P
ot Nos. 3 and 5 which deserves at least a good F
deal ot censure, if not an order for disbanding E
tbem. And, inasmuch as your committee were *
unable to ascertain tbe fact tbat there was a ,
great amount of property destroyed in conse-
quence of the conduct of said companies Nos. 1
3 and 5, tbey would therefore respectfully re- *
port in favor of overlooking the conduct ot Nos. j;
3 and 5 for this time, but warn tbem of the con- *
sequences for the future, in case tbey should be
guilty of like conduct. . 1
The report was laid over by the Council and ,
ordered to be printed.

At the instance of Mr. Stephens, of Ga., the 1

port oa broad national grounds, it being impor- 1
Unt not only to the navigating but all tbe trans

. Mr. Giddings gave notice ot an amendment to \
'abolish the traffic in slaves, to which this coun
try in the treaty negotiated with Great Britain ,
in ISI4 is committed. He said: Will gentle- '
men countenance the traffic in human flesh and 1
. involve the nation in tbe guilt of perjury ? [
Mr. Smitb, of Va.—Wbat do you tbink of the
Coolie trade, and of the French traffic in Afri- '
" cans ? t
Mr. Giddings.—l think it as bad as the coast- c
" wise slave trade. If it was to sell the gentle- 1
man and his wife and children, 1 should object. !
' <
Mr. Smith.—l suggest whether it wonld not [
be as well to comment on the interesting fact
that thirty-five vessels in free States are engaged t
in tbe slave trade, and only five in the South- *
era, before he undertakes to reform the morals (
of his neighbors. e
Mr. Giddinga.~l would as soon lay my hand ,
on a Northern as a Southern pirate. lam not j
sectional in my views. [Laughter]. t
In tbe course of his remarks he said if he {
should be nominated for Governor of Ohio, be <
wanted to make a straight out issue with the <
Democratic party. He wanted to know from 1
bis colleague, Mr. Cox, whether the latter's i
party was for or against the slave trade.
Mr. Cox rose to pay his respects to bis col
league for a few moments, and a crowd gathered
around him. He said tbat Mr. Giddings knew
tbat tbe Democratic members of'.be former ses
sion voted that it was inexpedient and uniust to
restore tbe Airican slave trade, and tbat Demo
crats North and South are opposed to it.
Mr. Giddings remarked tbat he bad alluded
to the coastwise slave trade.
Mr. Cox resumed and said that Giddings had
undertaken to place the Democrats in a false j
position, and inculcate the idea tbat tbe Demo
cratic party was pro-slavery, when he knew
tbat it was neither pro-slavery nor anti-slavery,
but placed itself on the doctrine of leaving tbe
people to regulate tbe matter as they deem
proper. He boped that his colleague may be
nominated for tbe Governorship -of Ohio, and
when the election was over, tbe latter would be
left to ponder over the result, and exclaim with
Aristides, "I yield to Popular Opinion in every- ,
thing even when the people drive me into 1
exile." [Laughter.] His colleague favored
negro equality in a speech, tbe other day, bat in
his printed speech, modified his language.
Mr. Giddings remarked that bid colleague
misunderstood bim.
Mr. Cox—Are you in faror of negroes in Ohio
Mr. Giddings—l expressed no such opinion.
Mr. Cos.—Will you permit them to vote.
Mr. Giddings.—l would whenever negroes eseel
the Democratic party iu intellectaud moral virtue.
[Excessive laughter]
Mr. Cox.—My colleague docs not come up to his
doctrine. Is be or not in favor of African Equal
ity and Negro Suffrage in Ohio.
".Mr. Giddings.—l would put them and the Dem
ocrats on the same f'.otmg, [laughter] but 1 will
not interlere ia the quarrel between tnem.
Mr. Cox.—the difference between my uge and
tbat of my friend, if lmay so call him, will not
allow me to put bim to the torture because he
cannot be elected Governor of Ohio. Ia ri>ing, ail
I wished to do, was to jut the Democratic party
right, and it is right. The gentleman can come
on with h!s force and we will meet bim.
Mr. Stanton of Ohio, wonted to ask Mr. Cox a
Mr. Houston of Alabama, objected. Tbe House
had bad enough of this. There was much con
fusion daring tta proceedings, evrrybody be
ing evidently interested in the dialogue.
Mr,* John Cochrane in closiog the general de
bate on tbe bill, said be did not anticipate tbey
would embark on the sea of abolition and slave
ry discussion, simply on aqaestionofcommerce
and codification of commercial laws. He pro
ceeded lo answer the objections to, and advo
cated the passage of tbe Dill.
