He has no tified that government that an iustaut apolo gy and complete reparation must be made fur the imprisonment of the American Consul at Acapulno. There need be no fear but that the demand will be complied with and a dec laration ot war averted. The strike of the miters at Streator is end td. On Friday of last week the miners held a meet'in? and aereed to co to work at the - r o prices offered by the coal companies on con ditinn that all the striking miners should be re-employed. These terios seem to have been accepted, for on Monday, we understand, all the miners resumed work. It is an open secret that ot all the popular campaign speakers last fall in this State, 15ob lngersoll Is the only one who remains a Hayes man. Logan, Storrs, Sydney Smith, and even Dick Oglcsby give the party up as ruined. John Wentworth is about the only well-known politician iu northern Illinois that tticks to Hayes. Here's another Hayes outrage. Packard was consoled by the Hayes commissioners, after they Mole his legislature from him, that he still had the supremo court, and that a de cision by that tribunal ousting Nicholls would be recognized Rt Washington; and thereupon Hayes proceeds to appoint King, Packard's chief justice, collector of the port of New Orleans thus breaking up his supreme court! Janus T. Daily, a well known readout of New York city, proprietor of the Windsor Hotel and other valuable real estate, strangely disappeared a week ago, ami last Sunday his body was found in u deserted old tenement on Long Island, about three miles trout the Brooklyn lorry, where he had first apparently bhot and then hung himself. His mind ap pears to have become shaken because his property was no longer yielding satisfactory rents and was depreciating in value. On Tuesday expired the last important tewing machine patent, to that hereafter that important household Implement will prohn bly be obtainable at a (air price. The lead ing sewing machine establishments at Chica at once go reduced the prices ot their machines 4'J per cent., selling $G0 machines at $:l!, .$80 machines at (09, Jcc. Doubtless the monster establishments, like those of the Singers, Wheeler A. Wilson, Gruver& IJaker, Ac, will continue to make the machines, but without a material reduction in prices an opposition would soon spring up sufficient to drive them to the wall. THE STATE HOUSE SWINDLE. Iu the resume of legislative proceedings in hist week's Freb Trader it was mentioned that the committee to investigate the new state house swindle had made a semi apologetic, whitewashing kind of report. Since theu the newspapers, not satisfied with the report, are publishing the evidence as taken by the com mittee, and this certainly puts upon the mat ter a much uglier phase than was given It by the committee's report. This evidence not only bears out the committee as to the la mentable incompetence of the commissioners, but seriously question their integrity. Nu merous little transactions like this are referr ed to: The evidence shows that Heveriuge, one of the commissioners, had been receiving fr.W and $25 a month rent tor a building on Hie state house grounds from August, IS. J, till date, and thut he haJ not accouuted lor a dol lar on the books of the commissioners, and that Aid. Sands had been for monthsdrawing $123 a month as superintendent, and only had two laborers and two carpenters under his di rection, and himself a plasterer. There were a lot of columns and pilasters to be made for theseuate chamber.nnd bids were invited. Spurway and Warren named a price for' substantial stone work, but the commis sioners ordered the work to be given to Paul Badcau, who, instead of using substantial material, made the columns the merest sham, of material that is already crumbling away, but for which double was paid that the other parties had asked. The committee try to luy all the blame for the enormous cost above the estimates upon the dead French architect Piqucnard, and doubtless he was largely Instrumental in bnngingabouttheincrea.se. He was a hot blooded Haul, educated in the Louis Quatorze school of art, with about as much notion of what was meant by the "republican simplici ty of style" which the origirml state house law enioined. as a Hottentot would know of ancient CJreek art. Instead of durable, substantial work, all his ideas seemed to run into gaudy decoration and shams. Instead of stone and iron, he preferred terracotta and Portland cement; instead of marble he pre ferred scagltola, or imitation marble. As P. H. Decker, a Chicago master-builder, stated in his testimony: There are many defects in the building, though the workmanship is better thun the material used. L'pon asccuding the grand steps iu front, the citizen cannot help seeine I a mosaic ot roughly hewn stone and Portland cement, the latter after only a lew months' wear exhibiting cracks, seams, and scaled surfaces. Inside the building the corridors are wainscotted with beautiful variegated mar bles, and then to make the contrast more dis agreeable they are paneled, oilastered and cappped wilh a material culled scagliola, an mutation of nothing, of so poor a quality that it is already .crumbling and splitting away. The wood and workmanship in the executive chamber are cheap and imperfect, w hile the fresco painting is gaudy and out of character. But the supreme court-room is the crowning feature of misapplied money, architectural genius and painter's skill. In a chamber where our simple constitution commands rev erence for the stern und blind goddess, Jus tice, thousands of dollars have been expend ed in carton pierre r luster and fresco paint ing, rendering the chamber gorgeous us the audience-room ot a monarch. And so on, all through the building. All this involved constant chauges of the original plans coustant new estimates, new expendi tures, and it is sheer dishonesty to claim that the commissioners did not make themselves partus iu such extravagant and unauthorized waste of money. The committee, it is true, propose mildly to punish the commissioners by discharging them, when there is no more money left for them to waste, but it is mani fest from the partial disclosures already made by the the Investigation, that a more search ing inquiry, by aless friendly committee to conduct it, would not have let the commis sioners oil' go littlu scathed. Many of our older settlers, especially in the west end of the coun'y, pleasantly remember Captain Ilurlon Abb', the popular command eroftbc "Ocean Wave,"' "Time and Tide,"' and other favorite Menmcrs in the Illinois liver trade before, railroads dried up that ttres'.iu, &t kasi to the passenger carrying business. .After retiring from the river, dipt.

Pennsylvania has just illeeted a loan of S,W)0.0o;j, at 5 percent., selling her bonds at a premium of 3' per t ent., making the real interest on the loan for the Mrs year but l't per cent.

Tlic credit of the state is no belter now than wliou it had hard work to sell its (! per cert bon! at par, but thy result shows the general de dine of the rate .f 'interest throughout the country. It is brought about by nonjury j laws or o'her legislative devices to lower the rate of interest, but by the general stagnation (.1 b'lMiicss on account of which there are no other ways opvn for more profitable invest ment.

All accounts agree that there Is a tremen dous lush to the I'.lack Hills. The central point to w hich all the thitherward moving trai as are directed is Dead wood city, which Is now the scene of a bustle and excitement equal to anything seen iu S.in Francisco in its earliest and most stirring Jays. The city is grow lug like u mushroom, liusinuss, gam bling, speculation, confusion, bad Jiquor, gold, wealth, music, dancing, fighting, happi- all are rife in Dcadwood. war speculations The eagerness with which Ilussia rushed Into the present war with Turkey, certainly against the advice If not earnest remonstrance of Europe, with the certainty that under such circumstances the Czar would in no case be allowed to wrest from Turkey either Con stantinople or any territory at all commensur ate with the expense involved in the war, leaves room for much curious if not anxious speculation as to whut Alexander is rea'Iy driving at. From a "high source" iu London, comes this speculation : It is believed that Ilussia does not purpose to push the war on the Danube; that she is deferring to the susceptibilities of Austria and Germany, and will not make an attempt on Constantinople from the north. The Eu ropean movement is a diversion, the real point of attack being Asiatic Turkey. It is this which alarms England alone of all the powers of Europe, for Disraeli and Derby see that the possession of Armenia and the Holy Land by Hussia would place the Suez canal at the mercy of the Muscovites. Hence the prepa ration of the contingent 30,( 00 men to occupy Eeypt and the despatch of stores to Malta and Corlu. The diplomacy of Hussia has been masterly from the start. The most of the fighting being done in Asi relieves her of embarrassment from other Cabinets in Eu rope, with the exception of England, whose interests in India and Egypt arc directly men aced. Another English speculation as to the out come of the war runs in this way : If the Husslan armies cross the Danube they will establish themselves In Bulgaria, and, instead of crossing the Ealken range or advancing upon Constantinople, they will en deavor to effect a junction with the Montene. grin forces. Thus the Turks will be entirely cut oil' from IJosnia. In Asia a llussian army will co-operate with Persia. Peace will then be proposed upon the basis of Bulgaria being annexed to Houmanla, in consideration ol which Moldavia will be ceded to Hussia. The Prince of Montenegro will receive acon sidcrahle accession of territory, und Bosnia will be offered to Austria. Iu Asia the Per sians will obtain a rectification of frontier at the expense of Turkey. England will be in formed that, If she chooses o replace Turkey as the suzerain of Egypt, the Continental pow ers will make no opposition. Hut a prognostication that receives more attention than any other just now is that which comes through a letter from Ilerl in, and if not written by, is said at least to reflect the ideas of Von Moltke, the present German premier. Following Is the extract: The good people of Paris, und their fugle men at Versailles, cannot get it out of their heads that wc in Germany are always think ino, of them, simply because they are always thinking of us. A:i a matter of fact, in the present question, it is Russia which most pre occupies us. We understand perfectly well that Ilussia is our next and most formidable enemy, and we also understand perfectly well how to disarm and paralyze her. The pres ent Emperor of Ilussia is a sentimen'al sim pletou, without self-poise and without moral courage. He has been driven into (his war with Turkey by the pressure of llussian feel ing. We in Germany have permitted him to engage in it, but wo are not such children as to permit him toemerge from it either with honor or with accretions of strength. If he is terrified by the attitude of England and of Austria into maKing peace, he will probably end very suddenly perhaps by suicide, per haps in the usual way in which Russian pub lic opinion vindicates itself against incompe tent emperors. If he persists in making w ar, he will be humiliated and Hussia with him, by certain defeat, as nothing can be more clear than that it is in our interest to allow Austria, at the critical moment, to fall upon his armies and obliterate all recollections of the Austrollussianallianceof 1819-50. Peace or defeat equally will mean the accession to the llussian throne, under a cloud of popular discontent and under a crushing weight of financial burdens, of a prince who is known to be our special enemy, the Czarewich. This is equivalent to a complete nullification of Ilussia, for a generation to come, In the affairs of Europe; aud what can ever hold out any hope to France of the recovery of Lorraine ana Alsace except nn alliance with Itussia? There is certainly something unexplained in the slow movement of Kussu toward the Danube and her apparent lack of eagerness to push operations in that quarter, and the thoughtful reader may find something to aid in the solution of the problem in the above extracts. There was quite a large turn out and really brilliant pageant on the occasion of the open ing of the Philadelphia exhibition on Thurs day. President Hayes and wife were there, ilh their young hopeful Webb Hayes; also Secretaries Evarts, Sherman, Devens, and Whatever may he Ihe good or bad luck In toe McCrary in one group; followed byl'iesi- diggings l.eyond, there are no dull times in dent Grant, Mayor Slokely and bishops Simp. the senate and house, and proposing to pun ish the reporter. This absenteeism had got to be such an outrage, that it was time; the press took hold of It, und though a few may have fluttered Injustly, the great body have not received a tithe of the castigatiou they de serve. It is not that the people complaiu that their representatives do so little. As a gen eral thing, the fewer laws they pass the better it is for the state. The con-plaint is that they waste so much time about doing nothing. extea session of congeess. After the authoiitative announcement had been made for a week in advance that the President would issue his proclamation on the 3th inst. callintr an extra session of con gress on the 4th of June, the country was ta ken by surprise on Saturday by the decision of the President to postpone the extra session until the loth of October. The only reason given for calling congress together at all in advance of the regular day of meeting is that the appropriations for the army run out on the 30th of June, and if no previous provis ion is made for its support after that date the army must be disbanded. If the President can undertake to tide over the army w ithout legal authority from June 30th to October 15th, there Is no reason why he cannot tide it over six or seven weeks longer, until the regu lar meeting of congress in December. Of course the President has no Idea of disbanding the army, yet he is violating iaw just as much in maintaining it three months and a half without legal warrant as if it was five months. Certainly there is no argument in favor of the postponement to October that would not be stronger in favor ot the postponement to December. As no explanation of this extraordinay postponement is given, the reason for it can only be guessed ut, and all parties making an essay m that direction seem to make the same guess, and that is, that in the present condition of the republican party the Presi dent dare not risk a meeting of congress. Blaine, Butler, Wade, Chandler, the Cam erons, &c, have shown such a belligerent dis position that if congress were to meet it Is certain a formidable opposition to the Hayes administration and policy would at once de velope itself; and that opposition would show itself also in the various combinations In the states with reference to the fall elections. By putting off congress to the middle of Oc tober this opposition must necessarily remain without organization or head to that time, and when the November elections are held, by summoning congress to meet in October, the leaders will be away from home, and so the opposition will still be without head or leadership. Hayes is certainly exhibiting no little cun ning in the matter of heading off the bloody sliirters, but whether they will not Le made only the madder and less appeasable by "this 'er little maneuvre," remains to be developed. Q.UEEE DOINGS IN J0LIET. There whs a very strange shooting affair ut Joliet last week, in which two citizens ot the "higheU respectability'' were the principal actors, aud all the circumstances Burounding which, it ever developed in detail, promise to furnish a large volume of uncommonly pi quant scandal. The facts, 113 thus lar revealed, are few and simple enough. About 31 j o'clock on Wednesday of lust week Dr. J. 11. Casey, a well-known prominent physician of Joliet, stepped into Cagwin's bank ank approaching Harry Cagwin, a 25-year old son of F. L. Cag win, owner of the bank, spoke a few words to him in an undertone, when young Cagwin opened a drawer, took out a revolver, and the two proceeded to a vacant room in the third story of the same building. A few mcments later four shots were heard, when young Cag win was seen coming down the stairs at a bound, followed by Dr. Casey at such a pace as to show he was hurt. Cagwin reentered the bank, and then started tip street wiih some friends. Casey walked about half a ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE. Sinco our last the following bills have passed both houses of the legislature aud be. come laws: Bill to facilitate the lelease of sureties of guardians. Bills to provide for the disposal of unclaim ed money in the hands of guardians, admin istrators, executors, &c. It provides that such money shall be deposited in the county treasury. Bill allowing treasurer of commissioners' of highways 2 per cent, on moueys passing through his bauds. Bills for the belter preservation of game. The bill makes it unlawlul to kill prairie chickens and wood-cock from the 15ih of Janu ary to the first of September; deer and pheas ants from Feb. 1st to October 1st; quail from Feb. 1st to Nov. 1st, and forbids catching them with snare, net or trap at any time; and makes other stringent regulations for the protection of ducks, brants, singing birJs, ike Bill appropriating $51,453.18 from the state treasury for the completion of the Copperas Creek dam, in addition to the surplus canal revenues. Bill to aid recovery of claims for losses against fire insurance companies. Bill requiring persons intending to marry to obtain license from county clerk only. Bill to punish grain coloring. The following house bills have passel the house only during the week : To punish a man for w ile desertion. Fine ol $5J0 aud imprisonment 30 days. Bill to punish waste of money appropria ted by the state for public improvements. It is a locking the door after the horse has been stolen by the state house commissioners. Bill to provide for fire escapes. It requires a rope ladder to be kept in every room of any hotel of three or more stories in he;ght Bill requiring registration at town elections in Chicago. Bill to provide for the resurvey of town ships aud fixing lines and corners. The senate has spent half its working time during the week on the house revenue bill, to which it is making so many amendments that it is doubtful whether the house will take time to consider them. Both houses have agreed to t; final adjourn ment on the 22J of May. The committee that has been spending some time investigating the affairs of the pen itentiary made a report last Friday. They report the financial condition not as gratify ing as is desirable, but thai this arises mainly from the general business depression. The "rebates" granted to certain contractors, the committee think ot omibtful legality, but may perhaps be justifiable, as preferable to the alternative of a suspension ot labor. The accumulated assets of tho penitentiary are not at once available, and to remedy the fi nancial embarrassment an appropriation is necessary. Tne internal economy of the piison and its crowded condition are referred to, and the opinion is expressed that a new peniten tiary is a necessity. The report highly com mends the humanitarian policy of Warden McClaughrey and Deputy Warden Hall, and credits them .w ith the excellence of tho disci plinary nnd sanitary condition of the prison The female department, under the care of Mrs. Judson, matron, is entirely satisfactory, and appears to be self f;u6taining. The labors of Chaplain Jii i-coe are commended as de serving the highest praise.

The eu'.ire committee sign the re port. Mr. Pinney, however, disagrees with the portion recommending the appointment of a state agent, and thinks the investigation of contracts and purchases has not gone far enough.
