The Leeper 618,000,000 railroad appropriation bill came np for consideration before the lower branch of the legislature last week, and a motion fo engross the measure was lost. It re ceited only thirty four totes. Tbe thing is dead, and wo trust buiied beyond a hope of resurrection. Tho first page of the Herald it occu pied with the speech of Col. T. G. Ilutt, oar hard-working representative, on tbe Eighteen Million Railroad bill, which be opposed in a maBterly manner. Col Ilutt is one one of those sound thinking, practical men, who deliberates well upon his aciions concerning his constituents, and though always busy, ntver intrudas npon the people's time with useless nnd scattering buncombe speeches ; but when it it necessary for bitn to speak for his conitituents, bis voice is aercr silent. 'Tis such points as these that go to make up a .good representatite. His friends here, and we might .say all orer the county, are highly pleased witb his manly opposition to that outrageous rail road twindle. Up We Got It is said tbatooe Prof. Plaotaaour of Switzerland, an attrono asr of tome note, bat predicted tbe de struction of tbe earth by a huge comet, whereby baogt a fiery tail, on tbe 12th day of August. It is to strike tbe earth witb aucb force on the other tide that all the inhabitants on this tide will be knocked headlong into tbe unfathomable ether, and when, where and bow we will (top will be duly announced io the new tenet of tbe Herald, on that other planet which may be tbe destination of our etbcral royaga. Our thackt are due tbe Professor for the promite he has gitco us of tQch a novel flight. For tbe comfort of the more timid, who are not particu Karly anxious to undertake the journey, it is further said that Prof. Plantamour has denied uttering any such dismal proph ecy. He tayt tho oewipaper men can't come it oter him in that style. Tbe Jefferson City correspondent of tbe St. Louis Times, in speaking of the "Leeper railroad bill," pays the follow ing handsome compliment to our worthy representative, Col. T. O. Ilutt: "The most president opponents of the measure hate beea Mr. Uardio, of Pike, and Mr. Ilutt, of Lincoln, who, at membera of the Internal Improvement committee. united to. a rigorous protest agtiott the tcaeae, ia the thspo of a minority report Mr. Hult'a apeeeh took everybody by turprise. lie hat been known tt coo of the soundest, aafett and moat prudent legitlatora in the body, aod hat alwayt exerted a aarked iafuenee, although hardly ercr addreitlog the bouse ; bat. 10 ibis, ease, ha showed that It wat, not becaute he.could not talk, bat beeavte he did aot choote to. His effort, waa not only notieeablo for it strength of argu ment, bat for it oratorical excellence and will add lrgey to hi already eoii- sblo reputation."

Tbi for prudential reasons: Enemies of tbe atty might flock to tbe place of toting lJ cast their totet for some emi nently unpopular candidate and seenre his nomination, in order that a more pop ular man who might be brought out by their own part? would stand a better hance of defeating bim io tbe general election. The expenses of primary elections, uch as tbe fees of the judges and clerks. the publication of notices naming the day of election, and a few other incidental ex penses that might accrue, should be paid by tbe successful candidates, each paying n proportion to the emoluments of the office for which he is nominated. This, of course, would be but a very small tern when apportioned equally amonj; them, say about five or ten dollars. These are some of the most important rules for the government of prmiry elec tions. Whether more fairness is shown the competitors by this mode than is gen erally aceordtd to nominating conten tiont, we are not prepared to tay ; there may be a great deal of chicanery in either. It would be a difficult matter to dnvise any means by which the chronic office seeker would not take every adtan tage, either fair or unfair , but on the whole, primary electioni, we beliete, bate generally given better aatitfaction than convention. In Ohio, thit system has been reduced to a law, and some of its provisions are very atringent. It provides among otber thing that the judge and clerks, who in that sttte are choten by tbe electort as- tembled by tbe call of the published no tices of the committee, and the tuperti sor of election, shall all be sworn, before tome one qualified to administer oaths, that they will "correctly and faithfully conduct tuch election, protect it against all frauds and unfairness, and carefully and truly cantats all totes cast thereat 1' It further protides that all persons who act fraudulently witb the party conducting the election may be "fined ono hundred dollars and imprisonment in tbe county jail, and be ftd on bread aod water only not less than ten nor more than thirty days." ThisOhio law bandlea tbe matter with too much seriousness, according to our way of thinking, and we have merely mentioned tbe matter to give oar readers an idea of the manner in which primary elections are conducted in some places At the township meetings that may, or at least should, convene for tbe purpose of organizing for tbe campaign, this mat ter can bo discussed, and tbeir com mitteet lustructcd bow to act io tbe premises. Of nominating conventions we will aay nothing. Our reader are sufficiently acquainted with their good po a with their "wars that ar oints a well wtrt tnatare dart: and tricks that are vain."

Tbe Republican's Washington special of tbe 17th says: It is announced that tbe administration will submit an amnesty bill to tbe senate on Wednesday next, tbrongh Senator Morton, and ask its im mediate consideration. It propsses to except all who left tbe arziy and navy nd Congress of the United States to join tbe rebellion. This is substantial! the axe at the bill from tbe bouse now ending in the senate, and the reason for ntroducing a new bill is not apparent EI oweter, as Mr. Samner threatens to ntagomze all amnesty bills with his citil-rigbts amendment, it is quite mani fest tbat this new measure of relief will fail like the others to secure tbe required two thirds vote.
