States, trampled nnnn i thi excliislon. but does it not nnallv violate that provision of the Fed er&l constitution which secures to the citizens of each State all the privileges and immunities of . citiiens of the several States." A negro citizen of New York or New England is now denied the common nereonal rieht of living in the State of Illinois. These arguments can only be met by the advocates of the Illinois exclusion, on the ground assumed by Chief Justice Taney, inlhe Dred Scott decision, to wit: that the Declaration of Independence was never intended to apply to negroes ; that they were never regarded by the founders of this Government as possessing any politi cal or civil rights which the white race were bound to respect ; that they were looked upon as an inferior race, who were never intended to possess or exercise'any Political rights. Here we have a practi cal confirmation of the justice and wisdom of this decision. The very smallest right of man is denied to the negro in Illinois a right which he ia permitted to enjoy and exercise even in the South But this decision of the people of Illinois is not more striking for its disregard of the Northern interpretation of , the Declaration of Independence and of the constitution of the United States, than for the hypo-, crisy and inconsistency which it displays in a people who, whilst professing so much sympathy for the negroes . of the South, freedom, so cruelly and. barbarously shut their doors in the very faces of these-4poor , victims of Southern avarice and oppression "--refusing them -the poor privilege, of even abiding on the soil of living within the broad limits of their State ? llereia the philanthropy of Mrs. Jellaby .on & large scale. ? " It is the poor nogro in the South for wliom we feel. We are tenderly alive to his intesests. We feel deeply for his wrongs and sufferings, and we would like to see his white master and tyrant swept from the earth. But when be comes among 'us ! oh ! that is a different matter. We $ant let him in. We want our fine lands for white people. He has no right to live among us. He can go any where lse, but there is no plart for him in Hlinois." We commend this picture of consistency and honesty to the serious consideration of those deluded foreigners' who imagine that the crusade which for so many years has been waged Against the South, has its source in any real sincere sympathy for the negro in any honest conviction against the wisdom and philanthropy xf Atncan slavery ; in any thing but sectional and agrarian jealousy and hate.

The Nashville corre spondent of the Cincinnati Gazette men tions the case of a pair of speculators in Tennessee who were " brought up with a jerk " by Gen. Mitchell. They visited some plantations , said they had orders from Gen. Mitchell -to procure , cotton ; offered twenty dollars per bale, and said if that was not accepted they would take the cotton anyhow. They were successful in some cases , but the matter was reported to the general, who -brought up the sharpers, compelled them to pay the planters eighty dollars bale and having done that, tbey were thrown into jail for falsehood and swindling. . Londmen. The medical officer of the London Post Office states that the candidates who present themselves to him for examination are, as a whole, much below the medium-height, strength and phytique generally. Of 361 candidates in 1861 for the situation of letter carrier, messenger, porter and laborer, he found the average circumference of the chest after inspiration only 31 inches ; the lowest requirement for the army is 33 inches ; in a considerable number the expansion of the chest on inspiration was but 1 inch ; the average strength was 289 lbs.; the strongest raised 450 lbs ; age between 17 and 37 ; average height 5 feet inches ; average weight 9 stone 6 lbs. .a ii . work of clearing the Qoeea'e Daaaai Piigog- of its inhabitants is now verging toward a close. Strange to say, it has been a very difficult tatk. Many of the prisoners sternly refused to be made ban Krupta,' though by giving tbeir content, they could have immediately obtained their release. Tne most curi-ous cate was that of Wm. Miller, who had been in prison since 'July, 1814 forty-eight years ! He had lost alt desire ti go out, and would sign nothing which would have the effect of making him a free man. When at length he "was absolutely forced to acqaieoce, he bepged to be allowed to remain in tie piieon a few days longer ; and when his time was np he still lingered fondly within the gates to bidjthe officials farewell, and to shake V..a. ,.,. ,u t. gates of the Qneen's Beech Prison, a few weeks since. Win. Miller, wno wts bora nearly SO years ago, never saw a street gas-lamp, nor an omnibus, mneh lew a steamship or a railway. Englith Paper. Porcelain Coated with Platinum. Dr. Elmer, of Berlin, has succeeded in lining porcelain with platinum, by this method : He took platinum black prepared accord- ( iog tq Bottinger's method, that is, by precipitating it from the chloride of platinum, boiled for a few minutes with a little glu-close and carbonate of soda, - and then washing the precipitate carefully and drying it at the ordinary temperature. This black is ground with essence of turpentine and appied with a brush to the porcelain. The porcelain must previously have been baked jonce, and been allowed to eooL After it, has been coated,' with platinum black, it should bo -put into an earther pan, covered with a lid-and exposed to the highest temperature" a porcelain fur nace can afford. . When it has. cooled, it rwill be found to have received., a brilliant ;coating. of platinum. As this metaL is 'much used for crucibles,' on account of its resistance to the action of acids, and its iufusibility, Dr.' Elmer's process affords a means of obtaining these advantages at a much cheaper rate ; for porcelain crucibles coated with platinum are quite as invulnerable as those made of the metal itself. In unscientific point of view, this new method is of importance, inasmuch as it shows that platinum, though infusible in its normal state, admits of fusion when' reduced to the condition of a black powder. In this state it is the same platinum as before ; it has undergone no combination with any other substance, but has been reduced to an impalpable powder, , which Dr. Elmer says may be transformed into a platinum ingotJy the most violent . heat obtainable in a porcelain furnace. :.

The cate was made out against the woman, and she was sentenced to imprisonment in the- Workhouse for a month, .Thereupon, the woman's husband appeared upon the stage as an intervenor in tbe premises.

Tbe Judge mentally held up the scales of justice and came to the conolaeioa that Jack had offended to the extent of $i0, vtLich torn, by way of fine, he ordered Jack to pay. To this Jack very emphatically objected, and the language made use of on the occasion was so strong that tbe court ordered him to the guardhouse till the money was fully paid. Jack then passed into the custody of two officers, but in his transfer from tbe courtroom to the guardroom, he became so boisterous and made use of such insubordinate language that be was peremptorily recalled, ana the Jndge changed his sentence to three .months in the Parish Prison. Next-time, Jack had better put a bridle on his tongue. Mrs. Pringle, of Union street, was called up to answer for refusing to pay a wash bill, as per order of the court. She- gaid she did not owe the money and consequent! v de murred s gainst paying it. The J adge said she most comply with the order of court or go to PrTTi ftfr rnntpmp' Iru""lln" ' 1 " ' money., - - - .... rrr -m j. U. morpny ana Anarew wiinams, ior takingiquor to camp and selling it to tbe physical representatives of Uncle Sam, were sent to prison for a month. John Doyle, accused of having stolen a morquito bar from a fellow soldier, was discharged, a charitable inference being indulged in to tbe effect that he had merely taken the bar to keep it from being stolen. -- Another soldier, named Wm. C. Barns was questioned on a charge of having stolen a comrade's watch. Ha contended that the owner of the watch had loet it while draok and had cflered a reward of $-0 for its recovery. Stimulated by this promised reward. Burns said tbttt heVvTent forth iu quest of treasure, and in a shfrt time his indaetry was rewarded. With an eye specially directed towards stolen watches he soon discovered one on the person of a citizen." Ha of course demanded it, obtained it and returned it to its owner. The - Judge intimated that he was disposed to be rather credulous, but not sufficiently so to swallow such a story, and as the circumstances were entirely against Mr. Burns he would send him to prison for a month.
