On Tuesday last, in publishing the pro ceedings of the Moline city council, our Moline correspondent said: Manv were aumriaed at Mavor Wheelock's nom ination of Wm. Kerns for street commissioner and it waa a bitter pill for some who voted for him. snaieen, otenger ana uranus votea nay. Our Moline correspondent was evidently mistaken. We are satisfied that of the aldermen (Ainsworth. Barnard, Ells, Hemenway and White) who voted to con firm the appointment of Mr.'.Kerns.not one of them did so reluctantly. And we also hear that Alderman Urantz has said he voted "no" because he had no idea that Mr. Kerns would accept the place. Why Shalleen and Stenger voted "no" we can not say;, it may have been for the same reason, or it may have been because they had some friend they wished to get ap pointed; certainly it could not have been because they doubted his fitness for the place. Mr. Kerns was in Michigan when the appointment was made. He did not Dot desire the place; on the contrary he very reluctantly consented to serve and ouly after persistent urging by the mayor and very many prominent citizens. Every body knows his superior business qualities, and his unbending integrity, and we have no doubt that he will make every cent of taxes, for his department, count in the in terests of the public for all it is worth. It cannot be a pleasure to him to perform the duties ot the office, and we believe he does it only in the interests of the public, and that the public will, at the end of his term, render a verdict that he has done so.

J III b 2Cth. The City Bridges. The Rock Island correspondent of the uazeue says one oi the main resources of the city treasury is the collection of tolls at the Milan bridges." This is very great mistake. If the Gazette will tale. the trouble to make a table, as we once did, showing the cost, the interest on the investment, and the cost of repairs of bridges and road (outside the city) and the receipts for tolls, it will find that the expenditures exceed the receipts. I he intention, in the purchase was merely to control the road and bridges and ensure safe and certain passage at all times, for the benefit of the business of the city. It was never intended to make the bridges a source of revenue. It was intended to collect only tolls enough to build and sup port the road and bridges but this has not been done. So tar, the tolls have not equaled the expenditure. Letter frcm Hon. James Chapman, of New Jersey. Jersey Citt, May 13, "7 t. oi. .) . li. Daiifortb. Jr., of the Rock UUnU Argue My dear Sir, I acknowledge the receipt of your papers with articles on iews papers and Newspaper men in Rock Island County," and consider myself under great obligations for your kindness. They have furnished me a day ot pleasure iunuav in the perusal, whilst I find myself in imagination carried back tto the scene ot bye-gone dajs, and in memory brought face to face with the parties you write about, most of whom I was well acquainted with. I went to Moline in 1849. and lived there till 1SG4, so that 1 was necessarily more or less identified with its early history, in tact I feel that I more naturally beloDg there than here. Many interesting items of the pnst came to my mind, one of which is the "Sheridan ride" made by Aloiiza Nourse (now deceased) tnd myself from Rock Island to Moline, about mid night one cold wiuter's night, with $20,000 in gild to make a tender to Messrs. Pitts, (iilbert and Pitts, for the Moline water power property. We were on time, that is, the day wag not quite gone, (as we had up to midnight) but Messrs. Pitts, bilbert and Pitts could not appreciate a ioke, so th- covered up their heads in bed and refused to see us count out to them the $20,000 in old. borne people can never appreciate a good tiling. I notice also in ycur paper that Cat-t. llaverstick proposes to publish a history of Rock lslaud county a good idea. The material is there for a very interesting book, one which every resident should have, and which, if circulated, may attract others to that section of our country a locality, I am frank to say, the most beau tiful to me of any I have ever seen, north or south.

Two Tears ia the Penitentiary. Ambrose Bone, who plead guilty to man slaughter in the killing of Minnie Ren necke, in the district court, in Davenport, m Tuesday, was brought before Judge Iayes on Wednesday afternoon and sen tenced to two years in the Anamosa peni tentiary. The judge remarked, in sen tencing the prisoner, that it was an un ucual thing for him to impose- so light a sentence upon any one guilty of such a crime, but the conduct of the young man wuce the killing showed that he had never intended to commit the crime, though he was held liable to to criminal punishment, Tbe C. K. I. & P. Stock Yards From the Geneseo Seirs. About the most laughable thing that has crept into the columns of the Daven port Gazette for the last two hundred years, was the absurd article la.-t Wednes day about retaoviuit the stock yards from Oeneseo to Davenport. The article starts out with the assertion that it will be doue whether or no. Then, after the article is ibout hah written, the editor bolts out and interviews official of the road on the sub ject, and discovers that they know nothing about the proposed charge; but that the company is thoroughly HatUfied with the manner in which Messrs. Oailigan and Remington have conducted aud are con ducting the yards here, and that the yards in all human probability will remain here! U'Dtletuen of this place enjoyed a hearty laugh at the Davenport editor's expense on Wednesday. NOTES HISS AND THERE. Concertat Dart's Hall to-night. Warmest day of the season and good breeze, too.

I have noticed in the V nion, this morn- mg, a statement ot a man who says his name is Edwin II. Cushiog, from Kock Falls, and who says he dined at my place yesterday and. that when he paid his bill he handed me what he thought was a one dollar bill but which he now thinks was a ten, and he thinks 1 took advantage of his mistake and made cLange to him for a one instead ot a ten. lhe man is mis taken. He handed me a one, Dot a ten. and 1 know nothing about his ten though I can suggest where it probably was left. if he had a ten. In the early part of the day this man was in my place, aud he asked me where he could find a "crib." I referred him to a young man standinj- near and said may be he can tell vou He conversed with the young man awhile and went away to such a place, as I have been told. He came back to dinoer. If he had a ten he probably dropped it there. He did not hand me a ten, but did band me a one. Charles Bcncher. Rock Island, May 17, dlt Seal Estate Sales.
