THURSDAY, FEBKUARyT1872 We acknowledge the receipt of .New Orleans and Washington papers, from Hon. Jasper Packard. Fire is Rochester. A dwelling house owned by Mr. Farrington and or copied by Mr. Thompson, was damaged to the amount of $150, by fire, on Monday last Defective flew was the cause. The Elkhart Reticle says that $25,000 arc paid out by the Rruilroad Company in that place every mon.h and it also says that money is mors plenty there than ever Detore, at this time in the year. Last Sunday we had the pleasure of "J'us wjacu a ciass 01 little girls who have been regular attendants, for live years lit.if n 1. .. 1 1 1 J uic rresoyienan Sunday school in Plymouth.

The Review advises the authorities of that place to take the necessary stepr to prevent the spread of me disease. The Marion, Indiana, Monitor is in favor of Colfax for President. It favors the doctrine of one term for President, except in case where the President isjeminentlv qualified for re-election, as was the case with Lincoln. This is the opinion of the people generally the exceptions being those who oppose a re-election, in any case. The School house is only A.i miles south-west of Plymouth where "a" youn-lady attempted to gouge out the eve? of a nice young man; he would certainly have been too much for her, had her hair been longer, but as it. was, she came off conquerer. Rochester Sentinel. This will be news to the people in that neighborhood. We learn from the Michigan City Enterprise that Messrs. Clark & Co. of Chicago, have leased ground for wharfage on Trail Creek, in Michigan City, and procured the privilege of converting the far famed Hoosier Slides and hill in that city, in, o artificial stone. The company propose to manufacture a shipload everyday, for the Chicago market. The cost of manufacturing will be very small, and transportation a mere trifle. It. will tnto a long time to use up that huge pile of sana, even at that rate. The Remiblican papers in the northern part of the State, almost, if not quite, unanimously, express tln;ir preference for Hon. G. S. Orth, for Governor. With such a showing there can be but little doubt of his nomination. There seemes to be no opposition to him outside of his own county. A little jealousy exists there; but not of a character to detract from his good standing, either as a Republican or a gentleman. We hope to see his nomination made unanimous at the State convention, on the 22nd of February. Chicago is Growing in Morals. It is said to be an absolute fact, and we have no doubt of the truth of the assertion, for it is published in the Chicago papery that a city Alderman has been found' ' guilty of receiving a bribe for his services in procuring legislation, that would put money in his employers pocket. Potter Palmer was once considered very mean by a.Chicago Alderman, for offering him the pitiful sum of one hundred dollars, for his services in procuring tne passage of an ordinance to condemn property on state srreet, for the purpose of widening that street. It was not wrong to offer a compensation for services rendered; but the sum was so small that Mr. P. appeared contemptible in the sight of the virtuous alderman, when he knew that Mr. Palmer was made richer by thousands of dollars. The question now is, what shall be done with the men who bribe the Aldermen. Public opinion has always favored that class of speculators, but the time is coming, if it has not already come, when such transactions will be looked upon as conspiracies to rob the people. Daniel Shehan, while holding a subordinate office under Thos. Murphy, collector, and Alonzo B. Cornell, surveyor of the port of New York, paid two "per cent, of his salary, in obedience to the following circular, dated October, 1871. To all whom it may concern : All persons in the employ of the Custom House, will be required to pay at the office of he' Surveyor, two per cent, upon their salaries for the year. Signed By order of Thomas Murphy, Collector of the Port of N. Y. This notice was posted where it could be seen in the office, when his salary was paid him. He was afterward removed from bis office, and has now commenced suit against Murphy and Cornell to recover the money. What use was made of the money is not stated. The question will soon be tested whether it is right and proper for such things to beor whether it may not be classed with the crime of highway robbery. There is very little difference ecu me uemanj' oi -your money or your life,' and "your money or your po-:':-:on " to 12.' ?.b-':e r'fli l- renrrrr-'-d. From the Indiana State Journul, 10th. Colonel Eddy's Funeral. THE MEETING YESTERDAY. Governor Baker's rooms in the State House were crowded yesterday afternoon by the i?tate officials and other friends of the late Secretary of State, who met to make arrangements for the funeral. Hon. John Pettit presided, and opened the meeting with some timely allusions to the good man in whose memory those present had assembled. J udge Pettit said : Words cf honor and respect could not, be more filly spoken of any man than of our friend, and whatever you see fit to do in respect to his remains or his meuury 1 shall approve with melancholy pleasure. Governor Baker announced the probable arrangement, for the funeral according to his information from the family, llou. James B. Ryan subsequently announced, bv auihoritv. tin t-ui.n,. sired to have the funeral at South Bend on Wednesday, to effect which the re mains must leave here Tuesday evening VVhile the family did not desire any services or demonstration in this city, they yielded to the desire of friends, and there would be services at the residence preliminary to removing the corpse. In au intervail of business Mr. W. II. Drapier, formerly of South Bend, said th it for twenty-live years he had known Col. Eddy well and intimately, and there never lived a nobler man or a truer friend. Words of praise were only too w eak to be used in this connection. "lie was an honest man in an upright and incorruptible sense, which is not common iu these latter days. If h, had a tault which the speaker did not assert it was only his apparent carelessness about religion ; but that question was not for usto decide. He was a good man, and his example should be cherished. Hons. J. B. Ryan and A. L. Roache were appointed a comtuit'.ee to make arrangements with the Peru road for tiaua-portation.
