Swift, so well known to the people ot Illinois as the President of the Board ot Trustees of the Illinois & Mich igan Canal, recalls the admirable management of that work by him. No trust was ever better executed than that of the Canal Fund of Illinois by him. Under his wise, judicious, and economical administration the canal lands and lots were sold, the revenues collected, and the canal debt paid without the joss of, a dollar to the State. Of his associates. David Leavitt only survives, Mr. Griuneil having died some years ago. Of the old officers of the canal few survive." William Harding, the Chief Engineer,. Eh S. Prescott, the Land Agent; Justiu Butter liehl, the first Attorney of the Board, have all gone. It is understood that all of Capt. Swift’s reports, etc., relating to the finances .of Illinois and tiie canal, an extremely valuable collection, are left to the Chicago Historical Society. It certainly looked like moving-day at the YVesfMadison Street Station last evening. Upon an anonymous letter giving the particularsof a sad case of drunkenness aud consequent desti tution, Capt Hood sent a couple ot his police to No. 516 -i West Raudolob street, and therep dsrtiie basement they saw a sight "Juv-i , pbeggars all description, and which toaue even, a policeman’s stony heart parents, R. W. and Adeline Mel ville, hiaJfficefiP'drunk for fully six weeks, and the youngest onlv 0 months cf a frightful condition. Upon, reaching! illJ etation the parents were locked ttp,s6tfeq incut. ■ Lloyd, with the unas suming t .,,gem.-roEity ■ which has always charactenzedliim’ paid a woman in the neigh borhcßHWiare for the children until to-dav, when it If expected that the Court will make some disposition,©! them. A little later, an un known woman, destitute from the same causes, and with six small children; one at the breast, - was brought In from the West Twelfth Street Station.,, They, too, were in a horria condition. During the month of April the letter-carriers ol the-Chicago Post-Office -delivered 16,872 reg istered letters.* 1,658,613 mail letters, 290,347 ; mail postal-cards, 320,881 local letters, 202,284 mail postal-cards, and 591,587 newspapers, etc. They collected 1,9(6,472 letters, 211,734 postal-, , cards, 586,804 newspapers, etc., and returned 5,069 letters to the office.

The sales of postage-stamps and postal-cards amounted to $58,461, which, with §18,105 of , stamped envelopes and wrappers, and §7,&55 of newspapers and periodical stamps, gives a total from tliis’ source of §83,953. The domestic money orders issued foot up §?2,780, the for eign §7,937, while $488,964 of domestic and §7,- 671 of foreign orders were paid. The total re ceipts are $663,387, and the disbursements $606,- 635. It will be noticed that the money that has been coming into the city from this source is much greater than that paid out, only 4,193 do mestic money-orders haring been issued as against 47,636 paid, the payments exceeding those issued by the large sum'of $416,175. TBB NOP.TU TOWN HOARD met yesterday afternoon in their room at McCormick Hall; present, Justices Wilson,, lie Wolf, and Robinson, Supervisor Loftus, ami Tptyn Clerk Noyes. The report of the Com mittee in regard to the accounts of the Clerk, Supervisor, aud Collector was called up. It has already been published. Clerk Noyes offered, as an amendment, a document setting forth that Collector F. J. Miller has paid out of the moneys collected by him all the expenses of his oilice without due. authority, and had not paid the money over to the Supervisor. Also that Miller’s account mid his sworn statement did not agree, and that the salaries of SBOO voted to the Collector and SSOO to the Clerk were without warrant of law. He therefore offered the following: Jlesolved, That said report, and tbe several ac- ; counts which are the subject of it.-be not allowed, but be referred to a committee of three, to be ap-. pointed ; by the Chair, with instructions 110 report the amount or .compensation to-which each of said; officers is entitled by law. . Justice Robinson said that the salaries of these officerswere-.fixed long 1150 by-the,full: Board, and could not be altered. Justice Wilson said that, even if the sums' mentioned Sad been irregularly paid, no injus tice fhad been done either to individuals or the public.

John Forsythe called at the Comptroller’s of fice and told*the clerks that he had “got it dead sure.” He wants Mr. Fanveil to remain, but in a subordinate position, which of course he will not do. Mr. Forsythe stated further that be in tended to let the -Mayor annoinc the clerks, so seekers alter positions need not pester Mr. For sythe and load him down with petitions.

Ho expects by Monday morning to begin the work of counting them, and'bopes to furnish the re porters with some statistics for next Saturday’s papers.. A singular fact noticed yesterday was the absence of any applications for the position of Superintendent of the Small-Pox Hospital. It is worth S9OO a year, but no one seems to want the berth.

The Grand Jury yesterday considered about fifteen minor cases, but did not return any bills. They will present their report to Judge Booth some time to-day. During the afternoon Sir. Starke, of Arlington Heights, was around trying to get the Meycr-Geldermann cases reconsider ed. He did not meet with any satisfaction, and it is said that his conduct on the stand and the very peculiar things which he swore to injured his cause. Lundbcrg, ihe Hyde Park officer who shot Tom Hocan, is still in the County Jail. Mr. Condee, acting on behalf of the Trustees, yes terday visited the County Building for the pur-, pose of making an application to admit Luud bergtobail.

It is said that there are fifty of the best citizens in Hyde Park ready to sign Xund berg’s bond if bail is accepted. Deputy Sheriff Currier still holds possession of the warrant which was sworn out lor the ar rest of ilrs. Young for trying to shoot Stevens, Tom says he didn’t know whether Mrs. Young has recovered from her sickness, aud that he tninks he will give the document back to Sheriff Hoffmann. The Sheriff savs he don’t know wbat has become ot the warrant, and the State’s At torney expresses an equal amount of ignorance. It is clear that nobody wants to travel out of his way in order to further prosecute Ibis unfortu nate woman. ' Stevens has abandoned his idea of a special trip down to Joliet, and will go oown with the gang on Thursday. He .will piobabiy receive his sentence Tuesday or u ednesday. > CUSTOM-HOUSE. Nothing but motions in the United States Court yesterday. The currency disbursements of the Treasury Department yesterday were $34,000.

There is a gradual fall ing in,these sales, perhaps owing to the fact that Tim Bradley has got the •“ dron ” on some ol the "regulars" who.come around to buy certificates every day, asks them some hard questions, and tires tnein out. The Custom-House cases will be taken up in the United States Court next week. Hili, the Supervising-Architect, is; expected here this morning. The jury has been drawn and ordered to renort at 10 o’clock Tuesday morning, when Judge Dyer, of Milwaukee, will proceed to try" the case. ■ CRIMINAL. ’ Thomas' Wilson, John O’Brien, John Connors, and James Kyan, each'about: 1C years of age.

The case of .Michael McDuff, charged with bigamy, came up yesterday in the morning Criminal Court. ■ ■ “What is the charge in. this case?” inquired the Court. “Bigamy,” answered Air. Weber. ■ “ Well, let the witness come forward and be Bwom,” said the Court. “You wish to plead guilty?” said Sir. Weber. “Yes,” responded the prisoner. / ■“You understand that! can sentence you to the Penitentiary for any period from one to five years,” said the Court. : . ... '' ..“Yes, sir,” was the answer. ■ “ Annie Kane and Caroline Marquette, ll then called out Sir. Weber. The latter was the better looking of the tiro. She was a little brunette, with a sharp face,aiid fe “lnlly“‘mad.’’ -: She was about 26 or 2» years o.d.—ihu other was 10 -years, - if--not more, her senior. There was a striking contrast as to beauty between the two. “They are a nice pair of ducks, ain’t they? ” observed Mr. McDnII, as they stenped forward. Tlie older woman, being his lawful wife, could not swear against him. She produced a mar riage certificate, which showed that she became Mrs. McDuff in 1874. The reading of the certificate rather irritated Mr. MeDufl. “ Did you ever marry her ? ” asked Mr. Weber of the prisoner. . “Yes, sir,” replied Mr. McDuff, and he justi fied bis second union in matrimony by adding, "She left me three years before that and went to Now York. Last’ November she came back with a child, in her arms. God knows where she got it, I don’t,” • , “ You know you are the father of that child,” said tlie woman with considerable vigor. “No I ain’t,” responded McDuff in like man ner. • . She looked at him sharp, and Mr. Weber got out of range, where he had been standing be tween the parties, and said, “Don’t let us have a light here.” Carrie Marquette, the other woman in tlie case, came up. “Were you married to this man ?” asked Mr. Weber. “Yes, sir, in 1877,” was the response. “ Did he represent himself as a single man?” asked Mr. Weber. “ Yes, sir, aud I did not find out he was mar ried before until January, 1879.” “No 1 didn't,” said McDuff. “ Yes you did,” said the woman. “1 didn’t,” said McDuff again. “You did”; andtheconple promised to keep i uo this kind of back talk for some time, when the Court cut it off, and asked McDuff it he had anything to say. “She offered to. settle for $500,” answered McDuff. Mr. Weber looked at him with an incredulous air, aud said, “That'll do.” Then McDuff accused his second wife of sev eral things, which she denied. Tlie Court settled it by giving McDuff two aud a half years in the Penitentiary. I. P. A. ARRANGING TOR TUB ANNDAI, MEETING.
