Both houses considered and ordered many bills to a third reading this morning, which, when it is not agreed to the contrary, is equivalent to the passage of niue out of every ten. recess. The house this morning adopted a joint resolution taking a recess from the loth to the 18th instant. The senate will concur, as either house will not have a quorum pres ent after to-morrow, from the fact that so many committees are off junketing at State institutions. The house penitentiary committee" starts to-morrow for Chester, in charge of R. I) Lawrence, commissioner. A (JCKSTIOXAP.LE KILL. Mr. Maistou's house bill No. 1 35, report ed favorably by the house judiciary com mittee, is h measure of very doubtful propriety. It provides that by a vote o the county the several towns and cities in said county may be made responsible alone for all the paupers within their limits. When it is considered that cities are a ren dejvous for tram ixi, pauiH-rs, etc.. who thus desert the country towns, it is easy to see what burdens will thus be imposed upon cities whiUi the rural districts would escape. Under the present laws counties, as a whole provide for paupers, while the state has no such thing as a pauper. Mr. Marston's bill will lead to state paupcrage, which is one of the worst forms it can take. Then wouliL come more "institutions," more "bureaus," until the state would be doing nothing else but taking care of its worthless inhabitants. Mr. Marston's bill should be defeated, as pernicious and dan gerous legislation. ANOTUElt OBJECTIONABLE MEASURE. II. B. 10 was ordered to a third reading this morning, and is another hit of bad leg islation. The present law, upon the taith of which the bonds were sold provides that the interestand principal of all bonds voted to railroads shall be collected and paid by the State authorities at the State treasury and in New York. This bill proposes to violate the cou tract by providing that this shall be done by county authorities at county seats. It is a bill to enable county officers and county bankers to handle this money, ami if possible depreciate the bonds and buy them in ut as much discount as possible. It is the work of country back ers and money sharks and should not and never will become a law. TUB MAYORS' HILL. Mr. Jennings1 bill repealing the present mayors' bill was unanimously adopted by the committee on municipalities this afte noon, nnd the chairman instructed to report the same to the house. This bill grew out of tho East St. Louis mayors' light, and was prepared by Mr. Jennings of St Cluir, and has been strongly urged by Mr. Wider of thnt city. - Now, if that goes through tho general assemby, Mr. Wider will be lmppy. House bill 317 amending the general law of cities nnd villages, is a companion meas ure, and its passage is also recommended hy this committee. NATIONAL NEWS. UOt SE KBTIMATKS FOR THE RIVER AM) HAR BOR HILL. Washington, I). C, February 11. The estimates for the river and harbor bill have heeu cut down by the house committee on commerce from f 13,000,000 to 5,759,000. Tlii'J reduction creates much dissatisfaction niiionf? those who represent eastjrF. interest cliietly because thy southern miction of the country lias been most liberally dealt with, the committee claiming that the s.mthcrii intercuts Were neglected during the war, making their needs mora Imperative tluu oilier localities. 187. AS KUTUA SKSSION. It in irt'iicrally bclievcil now that an extra session is inevitable, as thy (Demo crats irihist upon loatliny the appropriation bill down with what the Republicans call new legislation. A CAUCt s of Republican hcnators was held this morn in; and it was agreed to resist tho pa.sagtt of any legislation that is not germain to the subject matter of the bill under dis cussion, ukaoan's lltl.L.' It is said that the Reagan inter-state commerce bill lias hut little chunco of pas sing the senate. OPPOSED TO THE REPORT. The report of the Finance Committee of the Senate will meet with serious opposi tion, as both Secretary Sherman nud Com missioner ltaum are using their best efforts to defeat it, upon the ground that the pro posed reduction of the tax on tobacco will liminish tho revenue over $11,000,000. The friends of the lull are much alarmed nt the prospect of its defeat. The bill will be reimrted on Thursday. TILDEN OF THE CIPHER TELE GRAMS. HE POINTEDLY DISAVOWS ANY KNOWLLDoK OK THE RASCALLY I1USINKSS, In New York, on Friday last, the Cipher Telegram Committee examined Mr. Tilden. The chairman of the Committee addressing Mr. T. said: Governor Tilden, w e received your note expressing your willingness to testify." Governor lililen 1 nave u cold nud can not speak very loud ; the publication and translations in the New York papers I have read ; I did not recognize single dispatch, either in cipher or translation, wnicii i nati ever seen before ; I neverentercd into any arrange ments to purchase the vote ot South Caro lina or Florida; I had no information and no suspicion that any such communication!! were being carried on until 1 saw the dis patches published m the New York Tri bune; I had no knowledge ot and dealings with the parties to the negotiations. never authorized any such negotiations in auy form whatever. On the morning of November 20. 1S70, Mrs. Colonel Pelton mentioned in mv presence that her husband had "one for that day. I didn't know that he had gone or was going out ot the city He went to Philadelphia, I believe. Later in the day I was called on by Mr. Cooper, who was on his way down town, and was told by him that he had received an otl'er from some party, offering to obtain for money the vote ot boutli Carolina. 1 said I would authorize no such transaction nor spend money for any such purpose. The whole conversation occupied only a few minutes. I obtained Colonel Pelton's address in Baltimore and tele L'raphcd him to come homo. I knew noth inir of the ciphers that had been passing between him and others aud I could not have translated them. I never saw one of the teleirrams, either in cipher or transla tion. I did not know and was not informed that negotiations were going on in regard to illegally obtaining the certificates ot the returning board for some time. Mr. Mar ble called and told me. in a casual kind f way, alwut the corruption of the returning board of Florida. 1 never saw any of these dispatches relating to Florida, either in cipher or translation. In regard to the Oregon dispatches, I did not know they came in cipher until ' after a meet ing of the committee to investigate them. Sumo of the dispatches were addressed to my residence, No. 15 Gruinercy Park. I don't know that any of the.1 dispatches were ever delivered th.Tc. Colonel Pelton's habits of mind and mine are very different. A day or two after the elec tion General Grant wrote a letter recom mending committees to go South to see a fair count. I had nothing to do with the selection of those committees. I never heard from them but once, and that was through the communication signed by Ot tendorfer and others. I was very busy all the time and did not undertake to correct the idea that they were my personal agents, which has no foundation. They represented the Democratic party. None of them so far as I know went to these States author ized to do anything that gentlemen might not do. From tho 7th of Novem der, 70, until December 0 of the same year under no circumstances did I cuter in any competition for seeking certificates by ven al Inducements. There never was an hour nor minute that I entertained such thought, to tho people who, as I believed, elected mo president of the United States to the four millions or citizens who were defrauded, I owed it to proclaim that I would not yield one jot or tittle o.' my right. Whatever evils may result from tho subversion of the electoral system and of u free government I resolved that I would enter into no auction for the purchase of tho chief magistracy. Governor Tilden was hero interrupted by cheers, which the chairman suppressed. - Gongrcssnian Mills, of Texas, overdid tho thing in his speech on the proposition before the house to reduce the army. The Congressman felt that the government had not furnished the state with enough soldiers to protect tho frontier, and as he had to make an assault ou somebody he concluded to charge the responsibility upon tho Dem ocrats. It is evident that Mr. Mills dis charged Ids gun in tho wrong direction. He forgot that the Republican administra tion considered it more important to control elections with muskets than to protect tho Tex'ts frontier or to save tho soldiers oppos ed to the imlians. Mr. Mills will proba bly livu loipr enough to learn that ho shot the wrong way. ' Tho Oil City Derrick man says that the miserable pittance of 450,00(") annually doled out to tho chief executive of Franco is all that kept him from accepting tho situation when offered him. Shake, old fellow! When wo took tho position wo re lied on the perquisites to keep from starv ing, and when tliey railed u, threw tho blasted thing up and went into lucrative and honorable pararnphlng. NEW SEIUES-XO. 201 LOGAN AT FORT DONALDSON. From tha Andcr-un (Ky.) Nowa. Gen. John A. Logan, who was elected t the tinted States seuateby the Republican of tho Illinois legislature last week, was found severely wounded on tho battlo field of Fort Donaldson by our esteemed Circuit Clerk, Captain W. E. who, thinking him' dead, took off his splendid sword and belt and sent them to his family. Captain Hell, who was then a gallant Confederate soldier, came upon General Logan stretched out upon the ground, dressed in full regi mentals, his arms folded across his breast, his eyes closed and giving no sign of life. While standing over, us he supposed, the dead Ixidy of tho Federal colonel, Captain Bell was joined by Captain Maderia of tho Confederate side, who recognized in Logan his old schoolmate. Maderia was deeply moved at what ho thought to be the un timely fato of his youthful companion, and directed Captain Ri ll where to send tho sword of tho fallen chiet'Uin. Logan was shot through the lungs, and his life hung on a thread for a long time. Madeira was afterward kilied at Chickamauga. OVATION" TO GEN. LOG AN AT CAR BONDALE. General Logan was in Carbondaie last Saturday. A dispatch to the Chicago Tribune says : It was known throughout the town and country that Senator Logan would be in Carbondaie during the afternoon, and his staunch old Egyptian friends by the thou sands had resolved to congratulate him on his recent proud victory. The outpouring of the people was not eontiiK'd to party. There were hundreds of utahviivt Democrats and scores of Greenbackers all wanted to see John A. Logan, their old friend. Sena tor Logan arrived from Murplivslniro on the it p. in. train. On his arrival he w;is received with a salute of fifteen guns, under command of dipt. Spencer, U. S. A., tho tine silver cornet baud played national airs, the Cadet Corps attached to the Normal University paraded in full uniform, and cit izens of the town and country to the num ber of 3,000 were in waiting to greet him. lie senator was introduced by Hon. Isaac Clements, when he made a short speech, thanking his friends for their kind ly greeting. He was then escorted to tho Newell house by the Cadet corps and citi zen's committee, 'where ft general hand shaking was attempted. This proved a com parative failure. 1 hough tho hotel was thrown open, and every attempt made to accommodate the crowd. It was lound im possible. Accordingly, a platform was im provised ut the comer, in the street, and Logan was compelled to come out and make a speech. Ho did so, rather tried totloso. For the first time in his life, probably, he was not equal to tho occasion. So large a spontaneous greeting was never seen in a small place like this, and Log'anknew and felt that no man was ever more cordially welcomed. In the evening the doors of the hospitable residence ot Mr. E. J. Inaersoll were thrown open, and probably 1,000 of the ladies and gen tlemen of the town attended tho re ception. A splendidly-worded address f welcome was delivered by Mr. John II. Bar ton, which was followed by a feeling re sponse by Senator Logan. For three hours there was a constant stream of people com ing und going, the best and most intelligent citizens desiring to pay their respects to their distinguished friend and neighbor. Lo gan has reason to be proud of this ovation., BACKWOODS COURTNG. St- LoaU 01oue.-yjetnocrat. Ho sat on tho side of the lvini in a big white-oak rocking chair. A loug cured deer hound snapping at flies was by his side ; a basket of sewing by hers. Both rocked incessantly that is, the young peo ple not the dog or basket, 'lie sighs heavily and looks out of the west window at a crape myrtle tree; she sighs lightly and gazes out of the window at a turnip patch. At last ho remarks: "This is mighty good weather to pick cotton." "Tis that if one had any to pick." The rocking continues. "What's your dog's name?" '"Coony." Another sigh-broken stillness. "What is ho good fur?" "What is who good fur';"' said she ab stractedly. "Your dog, Coouy." "Fur ketchin' possums." Silenco for half an hours. "He looks like a deer dog?" "Who looks like a deer dog?"
