SUPPLEMENT. We guess, when all of the newly elected members to ottr Legislature have bad their say, have made their maiden speech . upon some , pet scheme or pet. bill, that onr sjlons will settle down to work in dead earnest. We very much tear, judg- in.rfrnm tmmn nf tho wind v sneechfi wi. heard made during the early portion of ihe present week, that there - was more desire on. the part of those making the- aforesaid speeches to bear themselves alk thar any especial good the talkH in .was to do the public service, Well, we "suppose it is so iu all Leg islative bodies, and trust thai ours 'wilt soon expend its windy and frothy stock of speeches, and that we will have thereafter the solid and substantial talk and committee work that is to save us from past grievances and secure for bur peo ple) a more wholesome and less op pressive administration of the law, in the luture.
