JIO CI nU THB TRIBUNE COMPANY, WEDNESDAY. JUNE 15, 1870. TEE judicial election. The Republican Convention yesterday nominated Messrs. W.
W. Farwell and Henry D. Booth as Judges of the Circuit Court It-affords us pleasure to say that both these gentlemen are competent and unexceptionable In every point of view. It is altogether probable that they, and Mr. Lambert Tree, will be elected, in which event we shall to enjoy the sorviccs of a high-toned and incorruptible judiciary.
Mr. Farwdl is a member of the firm of Goodrich, Farwell Sc Smith. A man of retiring habits and dose application, be has never made conspicuous before the public; but to the more thoughtful portion of the community thin will be an additional recommendation for the position for which be has been nominated. Hr. Booth is the Professor of Law in the University of Chicago, in which position he has commended himself very warmly to the younger members of the profession, and, at the same time, has won the respect of the bar generally.
All unite in pronouncing btm well qualified, both as regards' intellectual attainments and moral firmness, for the position of Judge. The public are aware that we did not hold ourselves committed to support the nominees of any convention merely because they were nominated. We have urged the selection of able and upright lawyers for the bench, and have been fully determined to support no others. We believe that those qualifications are secured in the persons of Messrs. Farwell and Booth and we therefore, support them, and also Hr.
Tree, so far as we may be privileged to support a third candidate, for we believe to be likewise an honest man and a good lawyer. THE RIVER AND HARBOB BILL. The House of Representatives has passed a bill, commonly called a Diver and Harbor bill, whiefi provides for, perhaps, one of the most reckless and unjustifiable expenditures of the public money ever committed by any legislative assembly. The bill appropriates, among other sums, $250,000 for continuing the work on the Louisville and Portland Canal. That canal cost $5,000,000, Fifteen years ago it ceased to do enough business to pay for keeping it in repair.
The commerce which -once needed such a canal had left the river and bad resorted to the railroads. Con- gress then appropriated the entire earnings of the to any person who would it. Tha job was undertaken, and, after contracting debt of $1,600,000, tiie work was abandoned. Since then. Congress bes been importuned to pay this debt and expend $1,200,000 more money enlarging the ditch.
Two years ago, the Secretary of War allotted $250,000 to this work, and now the House of Representatives has voted as much more. The Ohio River has recently been bridged at the Irfraisv3le and what little use there was for such a has been completely The canal answered all purposes navigation when steamboats were the only mode of hut now, when have left the Ohio River to return no more, Congress listens acceptably to a request to enlarge the canal to admit steamers which are not seeking admission. The folly and wanton waste of money shown by this appropriation is exhibited by the fact that neither the city of Louisville, nor Sts Board of Trade, nor any other body, private or corporate, would accept the canal as a free gift, and be compelled to pay the expenses of opening and abutting its locks, and of casual repairs. ThisTmoney is a direct donation from the National -Treasury -TOgrresome contractor one or two job. Upon the brink of the Falls of St Anthony a number of persons have built saw These are so arranged that the logs eater on the upper side of the null, are caught by machinery, sawed, and pass ont at the other end in the shape of lumber, which is built into xafta, and moved down the river.
The stone over which the water falls is wearing away rapidly, and, unless checked, will either destroy these mills or require their removal further up the stream. The Engineer Corps sent an officer np there, who reported that this wearing away of the rocks could be arrested by puling an apron upon them, thus protecting them the action of the water. He reported that a canal might be built around the falls, and, if the canal were large enough, navigation might be continued above the falls by vessels arriving there from below, Tha House of Representatives, moved by the piteous situation of the mill-owners, has appropriated $50,000 to put an apron on the falls. In other words, has voted that much money for a purely private purpose. House has $150,000 to build a alongside the Wisconsin River, from-Portage City to the mouth of the river.
This work will cost $5,000,000, and, year after year, this appropriation, -which is merely the entering wedge of a big job to sell to the government the property of a private canal company whose stock is at present of Httie value, will have to be repeated. The last Legislature of Illinois voted away, to a railroad company, the land lying at the Bottom of Lake Michigan, and in front of the city of Chicago. Against that legislation the city of Chicago has protested. It is intended, of course, to build an enter harbor in the lake. As it now stands, this outer harbor is the property of a private railroad corporation, by color of title at least At this moment the House of Representatives interposes and appropriates to be expended in the construction of that outer harbor.
The work is to be done by the government. For whose benefit? The appropriation is a direct gratuity to the railroad company, which, at the public expense, will now be able to reclaim and taVa possession of the submerged lands. In the list of expenditures for the coming year by the city of Chicago, is an item of for Arodging koopmg in order, the river and harbor. This money has to be raised by direct taxation upon the people of this city. We have thirty miles of river front property, all of which is heavily taxed.
By this bOI the government interposes to impair the value of this property, and, at the national expense, to build an outer harbor, to be held and owned by a railroad corporation. Ttiw bOl, in like manner, expends the public money on scores of other private jobs, making the National Treasury the almoner for all the beggars and lazzaroni of the Country- General Logan, by way of burlesquing I the whole bill, moved to amend it by ex- pending $50,000 for Calumet harbor, and, I finally, the House voted the money to build I a harbor at that point! Thw House of Representatives which 1 passed this bOI is the same which has re- fosed to reduce taxes, lest the government voold not have revenue. This is the some House which voted to tax steel rails 71 per cent, and to increase the duty on cotton ft is the same House which, but I yesterday, refused to abate the taxes on the clothing and'the utensQs of labor; which refused to take the tax off horse-shoes and wagon-tires, and off the cotton shirts and dresses of the people. But when the House had the distribution of the money thus raised by taxes, it was lavish its bounties to every sturdy mendicant that asked to have his mill built, his real estate improved, and hia contracts enlarged at the public expense. A more pitiable exhibition of lie weakness aod unfitness of the present House of to have change of the public money was never made Oa i to the vote this hi! It is Stated (as though that could change the character of the transaction in any way) that of the appropriated, the West gets Thank you for noth mg! Speaking not for the West, particularly, but for the taxpayers generally for the men and women who earn their own living, and who have neither time nor inclination for putting op jobs" at the expense ot the National Treasury, we denounce tliia whole ayatem as a fruitful source of corruption and demoralization, and a profligate waste of the public treasure.
It is no part of the proper functions of government to undertake and carry forward such works as and, even if it could be shown that the benefits to bo derived in particular instances were of more than a local and private character, we should still object that, the door once opened, there is no shutting it. What the country wants is a reduction of taxes. If Congress has a surplus of strike it off the tax each individual will get his share. Cbicue, IIL THE ILLINOIS CENTRAL OTHER SIDE. We have referred to the opposition to the clause in the new constitution relative to the 7 per cent tax on the gross receipts of the Illinois Central Hallway, which is being man- ifested in a number of Hie counties through which that road runs.
But this opposition is, by no means, general -in all. the thirty- five counties traversed by that highway, and ben ce the opposition cannot defeat the section, because all the other sixty-seven counties wili vote solid for the payment of the tax into the State Treasury, and against any division of it, or any part of it, with the aforesaid thirty-five counties. The present amount of revenue received from the Uli- nois 7 per cent tax is in the vicinity of half a million of dollars, or, say, one dollar for each voter in the State. The State taxes of every county are reduced, by virtue of this source of income, to the amount of one dollar for every male adult citizen therein. (Suppose that the Illinois Central was taxed on the same basis as other roads io this State which received no land grants, what amount of and municipal taxes would be derived therefrom? The best estimates we can make show thai the State Treasury would receive but 000 per nTinnm, and the counties about and the towns perhaps $50,000 exclusive of the city of Chicagomaking a total of $160,000, instead of nearly half a million which the company now pays.
It is very questionable whether the local taxation on the road, if permitted, would amount to much more than the sum placed to iheir credit in the State Treasury. Take the county of Will, for example. The Illinois Central pays into the State' Treasury fully per annum to the credit of that county. In other words, Will County would have to be taxed higher for State purposes but for the money paid by the Illinois Central on her account. The road runs twelve miles through that county, and if she could tax it for local purposes, she would not receive to exceed on the valuation of the track within her territory.
Hence, Will County will, probably vote solid for paying the whole income therefrom into the State Treasury. Ford County is another, through which the road runs for a few miles, that would lose by any diversion of the fund from the State Treasury. Cumberland, Shelby, and Fayette are counties, through which the road passes for a few miles, that would lose largely by disturbing the tax Cook County, which can cast 50,000 votes, feels perfectly indifferent on the subject. Cook pays one-sixth of the taxes for State purposes, and therefor receives a credit from the Illinois Central fund of about a year, and it is doubtful whether local taxation on the property of the road, located in the county, would amount to anything like that sum. On the other band, there is a class of counties particularly bitter against any disturbance or diversion of that fund from the State Treasury.
They consist of those counties lying close to and adjoining the line of the road, but not touching it, and which contribute largely to the business of the road, from which the tax is derived. The land grant extended over those counties, as well as over the others through which the road passes. To allow the latter counties to tax the road for local purposes, and not permit the former, also, to do it, is felt and resented as an aggression on their rights, and a gross injustice to them. The following are the counties so situated Vermillion, Livingston, Piatt, Moultrie, Jasper, Montgomery, Bond, Clay, Clinton, Jefferson, Franklin, Williamson, Johnson, Massac, Marshall, Putnam, Bureau, Logan, Whitesides, and Carroll, all of wham. furnished for tixa const ruction of the road, and have, since it was built, contributed largely to its freight and passenger traffic.
But they, each and alb would be excluded from the privilege of taxing the road for local purposes. Hence, they very naturally insist on having all the revenue derived from the 7 per cent fund paid into the State Treasury where they receive the benefit of their equitable share of it, in the shape of a reduction of their State taxes. All these counties will, naturally, vole solid for the retention of the fund intact, and, therefore, for the amendment Then again, a considerable amount of business-travel, as well as contzibuted to the Illinois Central, the other counties connecting with it by vanotfs railways. Thus, St Clair, Richland, Lawrence, Edwards, Wabash, Hamilton, White, Saline, Gallatin, Hardin, Pope, Edgar, Crawford, Madison, Sangamon, and Tazewell, contribute a considerable amount of business in one way or another, and they are not willing that the counties through which, the road actually passes should derive all the tax from it Besides all tbiOj a very considerable portion of the trade of the Illinois Central comes from lowa, Minnesota, and Western Wisconsin, on the north; and Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas on the south, to say nothing of the trade supplied by the lake country, In-1 and the Eastern States. Certainly 1 the revenue derived from these 1 should be paid into the State Treasury for the common benefit of all the counties.
1 It will be seen from the foregoing that there are two sides to this question, and 1 those opposed to any division or divork sion of the fund can offer many strong guments in support of their position. We 1 have not taken part in this controversy, and do not intend to do more than to give both sides a fair hearing.

As the pomps Bridgeport draw water from the lake, but do not, unfortunately, affect the borth Branch at all. thc value of our contemporary's predictions In the matter can be easily arrived Chicago Journal.
The memory of the writer of the above paragraph is batily at fault. It was one of the other city Tima, we be- mat contended mat me omul would drain the North Branch. The TnracEE clposedand ridiculed the absurdity the assertion at the fime. The Trantrsn never said the canal would draw no water from the lake. What it has affirmed for four years, and still affirms, is, that a considerable portion of its capacity will be occupied in discharging the natural drainage into the South Branch; that, before it can draw from the lake, it must carry off all the water that flows into the river from rams, surface drainage, and sewerage.
In other words, it must draw water up htll, and against the natural flow of the stream, Tbibtoe has repeatedly shown that, had a ditch of two-thirds the of the canal been cut from a point on the lake, near the Befonn School, to the South Branch, near the Slock Yards, a hundred-horse power wheel lifting water over abreast of two feet high, could throw into the river a stream of twice or thrice the volume that the deepened and narrowed canal will ever be able to take out of the river. This lateral ditch, through easy surface-cutting of three or fourmilej wotdd cost not one-tenth part as much as the deepening of thirty-three miles of canal throngh limestone rock and hard-pan, and, constructed, would be worth half a dozen for the purpose of purifying the river. The will only draw water from the surface of the river, leaving all sediment and deposits of the sewerage to settle on the bottom, and gradually fill it up, unless removed annually, at great expense, by dredging; whereas a stream of pure water of 25,000 to 80,000 cubic foot a minute, poured into the liver at Bridgeport, wonld produce a oon- current in the river aft all times, sweeping all the sewerage deposits ont into the lake. The water thrown Into the river from this ditch wonld be in addition to the water fh a flows into it from drainage and sewerage, which, after heavy amounts to' considerable, and this added to the quantity the lateral canal from the take would contribute, -would produce quite a strong and purifying stream; flowing in the proper and natural down hill, from the head of the stream to its place of discharge. Wo made all this plain teveral years ago, but folly, stupidity, and corruption combined, were too strong for facts, arguments, and demonstration, and the consequence is that the three millions are wasted, and the canal will be partly spoiled, and the river will not be purified.
Tho Knights of St. Crispin in Massachusetts are pushing their exactions to a point which is working out its own cure in a manner they will little relish. At North Brookfield, recently, the league ordered a strike because their employers refused to discharge certain workmen for non-payment of their dues to the league. It appears that the league consisted partly of Americans, but more largely of foreigners, and that the latter being disposed to go to ludicrous extremes in their exactions, the Americans withdrew from the league altogether. The foreigners contended that the membership was for life, they had no right io withdraw, and, on this theory, soon asserted a claim for the dues continually accumulating.
Upon their refusal to pay these, the knights struck because their employers would not act as a police force to collect duos for the officers of the trades-unions! Another case will show the remedy: Hr. Sampson, shoo manufacturer, of North Adams, having similar difficulty with the St. Crispins, sent his agent to California, and ho is now on his way back to North Adams with a car-load of Chinese Crispins, seventy-five in all, and more are soon to follow. His terms are $23 a month for the first year, S2O a month for the second and third years, SGO a month to Ah Sing, the foreman, who speaks English perfectly, fuel for their cooking, and, in case they die, their remains are to be faithfully packed and shipped back to the Kwoug Chang Wing in San Francisco, to be by. them shipped to their homes in China.
They will devote their attention to in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, only on condition that their bones whall return, to bo buried in the Celestial and Flowery Land. Bat they will enter into no trades-unions for the next two thousand years. Instead of objecting to apprentices, they will be only too happy to loach them, and, if any of them turn out they are to be turned out with no pay. Over two thousand Chinamen are now employed in making slippers, in San Francisco.

Fennimore Cooper, and N. P. Willis, of New York, and Richard Hildreth, an old time Abolitionist and editor of the New York Tribune, os writers whose fame redounds to the credit of Southern literature. Of course it knows, or ought to know, that none of these men were Southern in any sense, while one or two of them were as anti-South cm as any in the country. Not even Wendell Phillips exerted a greater influence than Richard Hildreth in shaping anti-slavery sentiment.
There are authors whose laurels fairly belong to the South. Thomas Jefferson, William Wirt, Edward Livingston, George D. Prentice, J. P. Kennedy, John J.
Audubon, Edward A. Pollard, J. D. as well os Poe, Simms, Mrs. South worth, and the others named by the Tima.
Still it must be conceded that the climate of the South, however favorable for cotton, has been colder than Iceland towards literature. Of the authors named, one, Jefferson, wrote only to oppose slavery; others, such as Livingston and Prentice, were authors and writers of repute before they went to the South, and none of them, except and Pollard, were defenders or apologists of slavery. Still the South is not go dcsperately lacking in authors that Bichard Hildreth must be credited to her, because he spent a year there in studying slavery preparatory to writing The White Slave, a sort of forerunner of Uncle Cabin. The Pope, in replying to the address of the Forestieri, a day or two ago, remarked that, The of modem civilization, though certainly there are exceptions, are, for the most part, This is the view taken of the same subject by Bed Cloud and Spotted Tail, and would go far to show that, Great minds are apt to were not this an axiom of modem civilization, and consequently false, the CABAL JOB.

As usual, tho 'managers did not wish ufl to say anything until after tho event had transpired, so, to oblige them, we simply alluded to it. Now, however, that the programme is Inaugurated, we can speak more detail. Finding that there was no longer any profit fa working at present low prices, the managers of the Copper Company have wisely determined to suspend work until the advent of better timee. Accordingly, they have this week begun'discharging their force, and making preparations to house" the mine and-personal propertv. The men will bo all paid up between the'lstb and 20th of this month.
"-nth Pcwabic, preparations are also iC fr At Soul thirty to making for close from sixty 'days. Wo understand the total indebtedness to employes is not far from $14,000, which they calculate to earn, over and above the current exponses. Since April 1, no opening has been done-, the whole force being employed stopfng and getting out This could bo done for six or eight months, wben the openings would bo exhausted. If all work is stopped in sixty days, there will bo three or four supply of ground open f6r use in case of a resumption of sum is duo merchants we are unaware, but have no doubt they will bo paid in foil if they do not attempt summary proceedings. Of Fewabic and Franklin there is little to say, bovond the fact that general work will be stopped July 1.
A few men may be employed (or a abort time to clear up, Ac. There is no trouble anticipated in settling accounts. The Quincy is reported as reducing its force, yet the officers deny the fact. A few supernumeraries have been dispensed with, but the working force is unimpaired. Schoolcraft keeps pegging away, but how much longer it will do so is uncertain.
At the Cliff, all operations aro to be suspended July 1, and we understand all the personal and real estate will bo sold off, if possible, and the affairs of the company finally settled and closed up There is an intimation that tbo property will bo sold to a New York or Boston company, but which, is not yet known. What will bo done at Copper Falls we have not heard, but it would seem that it would follow in the wake of the others, i The probabilities aro, therefore, that by October 1 there will be but six mines at work in the entire Lake Superior copper region, and that a heavy percentage of its population will be compelled to seek employment elsewhere. This is certainly a gloomy prospect, and yet iu it, wo believe, is the positive remedy which shall, in time restore onr prosperity. There is no'wisdom it working out our mines at a loss, or without a small ntoftt. The copper ta better left in the ground until tbo business of i tbo country revives, becomes a profitable object to toko it out.

In tbo meantime, wo hope every explorer will work bard to find now and richer deposits than have yet worked. It is not possible that the Calumet conglomerate is rich only in one spot, or that it will forever be so rich as to drive ali other mines to the wall.
It may be able to do so for two or three years, but we have every faith that ourindefstigablo explorers will scornthe woods again and again, till at last their labor will be rewarded by a discovery heretofore unparalleled in the history of the country. doi iar irum to earn, over and above the OBITirAEY. William GUmov From the Sew York World, June 13. The death of this distinguished Southern novelist took place at the residence of his sou- in-law, in Charleston, S. on Saturday even- ing.
Mr. Simms was born in Charleston April 17,180 C. Ho was of Irish extraction. At tho: early ago of 7 years he began to write and daring the latter part of the war of 1812; the chief employment of Ilia leisure hours was, to compose rnymed narratives of the exploits of tho American army and navy. Owing to the' poverty of his family and a sickly childhood, his education was veir simple, and; at 10 years of agealmoot his only acquirements were a knowledge of reading and writing For several years afttrward ho was employed as a clerk in a drug and chemical store in Charleston, but at the ago of 18 bo Quitted this occupation to begin the study of tne law, A practice at this exacting profession sufficed to weary him, and, In 1825.
fie turned bis attention to iitera- taro. His first published work was a ody od tho Death of Cotcsworth Ho followed this with two vol- i umes entitled and Other and In tho meantime ho had become editor of tho Charleston City Gazette. Taking tho side of tho Union in tho nullification troubles of 1832, bis subscribers deserted him, and left him nearly penniless. Tlus partly decided him to remove to tho North, and tlms for several years bo became a member of tho literary society of Now York- Mr. Simms published bis first novel in 1833; Martin Faber, the Story of a Thenceforward, nearly to tho present day, he has been one of the most industrious and prolific of living anthers, sending forth in rapid succession volumes of poetry, romance, history, biography, or miscellaneous literature, many of winch obtained a wide-spread popularity.
Among his best novels were Tho Guy and Katherine and his masterpiece was generally conceded be coii. Tbo founded upon Indian cb: actcr and history. To tho department of history and biography Mr. Rimms contributed a History of South and lives of General Marion, Captain John Smith, tho Chevalier Bayard, and General Greene. He wrote continually for tho magazines and and (hero wifi scarcely a department in literature that did not receive some contribution from his pen.
Until within a few years, Mr. Simms resided on a line plantation at Midway, S. and occupied himself in rural and literary pursuits. This piaco was destroyed by the invading during the war, and be was again rodncod to poverty. He came North for a second time to live, and comained here until within a year, devoted to his old pursuits.
Simms 1 writings were at one timo verv popular throughout tho country, and are still so in tho South. Ho was, undoubtedly, the most esteemed of American historical novelists, after Cooper. In personal character ho was a genial, refined, and pleasant gentleman, frank and courteous in his manners, and blameless in his private Ufo. Tbc Earthquake at Oaxaca, Mexico, City of Mexico SO) CorrttjceniLence of the -Var York Unraild. The latest news from private sources give full particulars of tho terrible earthquake which nearly ruined the entire city of Oaxaca, on the 11th of this month.
About half past 11p.m., several hard shocks were felt, causing destruction of life and property all over tho city. Tho motion was oscillating at first from south to north, then vortical or trembling. Tho shocks lasted about fifty-eight seconds, and in force, destruction and seventy surpassed anything of the kind that has over taken place in this Slate. Oaxaca is probably one of the strongest, most firmly constructed cities in Mexico yet tho condition of tho houses since tho earthquake is truly of them in complete ruins. Tho palace is almost destroyed, and will require thousands of dollars before it can bo made suitable lot occupation.
San Francisco is one mass of ruins, and tho whole of tho corridors, of tho old convent of Ban Juan do Dios fell, burying four nersona and wounding many more. The clock tower, which was only finished'on tho sth of May, was shaken down, passing through tho top of tho building into the Supremo Court rooms, and through the floors of these into the portals of the palaco. Tho total number of persons killed is about 100, while It is impossible to ascertain the number of tho wounded. Tho shocks continued the next day (Thursday), and about a quarter to 1 a very severe one was felt. Friday there were one or two very slight shocks.
Terror reigns supremo, and upon tho countenance of every one anxiety ana fear of greater evil aro plainly depicted. All remained in the public squares and outside of tho city for fear that greater shocks would come, and, on account of its dilapidated condition, would make a complete ruin of the entire city.

Sccccnfal Atienpt Recover ables Suuk Two Ccatnries From the Patl Mall Gazette, 19. The attempt to recover the treasure sunk in Yigo Bay more than 150 ago is turning out After nineteen search made with diving-bells. fifteen galleons are reported to have been found lying at a depth of a few hundred feet, and on knocking a hole into the side of the Almirante some ingots, Elate, and valuable arms were found by le divers. However, further researches have been suspended for the moment, until the Custom House authorities shall have conceded a safe place to deposit the treasure. The Almirante and her consorts were sent to the bottom daring the war of Spanish succession, and have remained immersed in the port of a povertystricken nation daring the whole time of the Bourbon occupation.
Hardly had Queen Isabella been driven from the throne than a Spanish hanker, long settled In Paris, made overtures to the government at Madrid, and on (condition of handing over nearly half the treasure in case of success, M. Poriere received permission to Toole or tho sunken 'Ab the galleons have been lying at the bottom feince the year 1702. some time was necessarily required I free them from a large an'cumulation of sand, hut letters from Spain say that this part of tho task has been accomplished. A French account of the Yigo affair says that Count Chateau-lUmault was ordered to escort the Indian fleet returning from Vera Cruz, when it was chased by 150 Dutch and English vessels. Chateau-Benault wished to run into a French port, but the Spanish Ad- I miral, Don Jlanuel do Velasco, obstinately re-1 fused.
Hence the Vigo disaster, which sur pasted (bat of the eighteen French vee-1 sols and twenty-eight galleons, laden with wealth, were taken -or destroyed, and there was hardly time, through the energy of tho French Captain, to send a few millions ashore. Lord Mahon, whoso version is somewhat different, dwells at some length on the circumstances attending this affair. Qe' says that our fleet was on its way back to England when the Duke received intelligence that the treasure ships had gone into Vigo to avoid him. The cargo was said to consist of besides much valuable merchandise. The English and Dutch Admirals and Generals resolved on an action.
The Spaniards might have saved their treasure by landing it, but there was a fundamental law against galleons unloading anywhere but at Cadiz, and the Chamber of Commerce refused, on application being made to it, to bate one jot of Its privilege. The matter had to bo referred to the Council of India, and that body deliberated just a day too long. Chateau-Benault and 1 Don Manuel threw up a few feeble defences at the mouth of the harbor, but the English ships broke the boom thrown across the entrance. and Ormond and his soldiers stormed the forts. Tho French burned their ships, and made their escape ashore.
The conquerors shared some i millions of dollars, some more millions were sunk. According to Lafnente the doubloons got on shore through Gallic energy were soon captured, and immense riches in gold, silver, and precions merchandise disappeared under the waves." We shall soon know what amount of wealth baa been lying idle in so unaccountable a manner since 1701. The Chinese Companies of San cisco Discourage I'urtber gratlon. Frvm the San Franeitco Bulletin, The Chinese Six Companies, of this city, are (k combination which poeecaa considerable authority hero and in Shortly after the arrival of the last steamer from that country the loading men of the association hero, seeing about 1,300 of thoir countrymen lauded, called a meeting, at which a circular was prepared setting forth the reasons why Chinamen and Chinawomen should ccaao emigrating to this' country. Copies of this circular will be ed to the principal towns and cities of tbo empire for the information of all classes.
It is along document, but the substance of it is that California and the adjoining states are not what they formerly were, so far as the facilities for making money are concerned; that very few Chinamen can obtain more than a bare subsistence, and that only the merchants are able to accumulate riches. The opinion prevails generally in China that the placer mines in this State afford a good field for the of the immigrant. The circular stales that those mines do not pay any longer, as a general thing, and that if Chinese miners chance to make money in them, there is great danger that they will bo robbed of their earnings and driven out of their mines by thieves and robbers. -They say their people are not respected, but aro put down to tbo level of cattle and horses; they are in constant dancer of violence, and suffer ill-usage in every part of tbo State. They say of the threats of riot and bloodshed, that they consider most i of them as idle talk, bat would not do anything i to provoke an attempt to execute them.
Tho condition of the people is described, that thousands of them are without work, can get none, and are destitute of food and other necessaries of life; that tho merchants have extended temporary relief to some, but that all cannot be aided. For these and other reasons they deprecate the policy of ponding any more Chinamen hero. Of tho female immigrants they say that the women who havo cotno here have brought infinite disgrace, not only on themselves but on the most respectable Chinese here. They also are advised to stay at home. Tbc chief men of the Six Companies think tbs issuance of the circular will tend to retard very much tho future influx of their countrymen into America; and it certainly does not afford a very attractive picture of their present condition and prospects.

Every morning and evening, at tho ringing of the bell, tho inmates of the harem meet the great parlors, to attend prayers. They sing a hymn, and Young prays fervently. Tho prophet tvsed to eat at tho harem with his wives, but ho seldom does so now. In tho morning, on rising, each woman puts her room in order, and if she baa children, dresses them for bioakfasL prayers they all go to breakfast, the ladies with children sitting at little family tables, and those without children at the common table.

Brigham, from timo to time, designates some of his wives to take charge-ef the cooking, and they remain on doty until relieved; during the day the women walk out. sew, sing, play the piano in the parlor, or walk with the children. Most of them spin, make cloth, and color it. They aro very prond of their doth and embroidery. In the evening, all hands go to the theatre, where every wives has a reserved seat.

Ordered on file. CONnniOKOV 18l OLD SBIDgWHU. Dr. John M. Woodworth, Sanitary Inspector of the Second, Thiid, Fourth, and Fifth Districts, reported on the eof the old BrWewell as, fol- Iowb: The prison baOdmga are structures, boOtof rouan oak boards, audio the roughest manner; a bail, eight feet wide, runs through the centre of each building, on either side of which the cells or lodging rooms of the prisoners are situated.
The cells are seven feet 8 Inches long by 3 wide, and 10 feet high- £acb cell is lighted and ventilated from without by a window of one and one-eighth feet superficial vet, less the space occunied by the iron bars, which is lust one-half. Each ceQU supplied with two narrow board bonks attached to one side of the cell, and is calculated to accommodate two persons, but aa 300 are sometimes confined In ISB cells, overcrowding becomes necessary. On the day of my Inspection there were 101 men and 70 women confined in the Bridewell, which is the minimum number. On the day before, 89 men and 10 women were discharged by the Bridewell Committee. The character of the Bridewell buildings Is In Itself sufficient to place the sanitary condition ac a very low standard, insufficient size, imperfect arrangement and ventilation are too apparent to need comment The keeper useseycrymeaoa la his power to keep the place clean.
The floors are thoroughly scrubbed every day and the walls of the cells whitewashed nearly every week.fr',: this does not protect the place from the army of vermin that rendezvous in the cracks and between the boards of the Judging from anmlstakable evidences tn every cell, the wretched inmates hare an exciting time fighting bed bunt. Aa figures are the most convincing argument, 1 took the pains to count the marks of dead bogs, and found that 333 had been vanquished In a single cell In lesa than one week. As to the employment of the prisoners, the men break stones, saw wood for public schools, city offices, etc. The women scrub the floors, do the washing for the Inmates of the Bridewell, police force, and Fire Department, and make clothing for the inmates. Upward of three-fourths of the prisoners are sent for drunkenness, and nearly all toe others from crimes proceeding from this vice.
The worst cases of depravity are found among the women. About forty of them have been Inmates of the Bridewell for many years, never away for more than three days to three weeks at a time. One woman in particular has not been outside of the old shell for one whole week at any one time during the last fifteen years. The deduction from these facts is that the Bridewell resolves itself Into an trubriate cuyfum, and it should be regulated and governed accordingly. THE NEW BRIDEWELL.
In connection with the above. Dr. Woodworth reports as follows on the new Bridewell, although ft is outside his district and Jurisdiction. He says: The new Bridewell is about five miles from the Court House, on the outlet of The building, which Is a good one, contains 4SS cells, separata hospital rooms for men and women, dining rooms, kitchen, bakery, also apartments for the keeper and his assistants. The cells are completed and ready to occupy.
The boilers are now beiug put Into the building; The plastering Is nearly completed. lam informed that It is the Intention of the City Fathers to Inclose the gronnds with a stone wall. If has to be completed before tho bonding be occupied, the old building will have to answer for six months or a year longer. If the Grounds could be inclosed oy a temporary bokns ence, the building could be occupied in a tew weeks, and the prisoners conld be osed to advantage to pat up the wait The greatest objection I find at the new building Is the want of water. The water of the river is not fit to use, and the well water Is, of course, only surface water.
The cells are feet long, 4 feet wide, and 7 feet high. Each side, end. top, and bottom Is a single smooth stone. The bedbugs will hare apoorplace to bide in the new ceils. THE ABBOBT.
Dr. Woodworth also made a report oa the Armory, as follows: I have made a careful inspection of the bodUliiK Xxjown ml Uxo AnUOTJ, and herewith submit the following report; The Armory "18 situated on the southwest corner of Adams aud FranUln streets, and is used as a police station and prison. The sanitary condition of this building la unfavorable, by reason of: 1. Defective construction. 2.
Imperfect drainage. 3. Imperfect ventilation. 4, Insufficient size. The ouUdlng la without a cellar or basement and the first iloor is lower than the surface of the ground surrounding the boll ding.
There Is no provision for draining the ground on which the building stands. The building Itself is drained (nominally) by an open alolce running into a catch basin, and thence into the Adams street sewer. The drain Is continuous with au open gutter or trough passing through the cells, which is made to subscmfhe purposes ofa watercloset The whole sewerage i arrangement in connection with the street main, which opens at the river side above the water-level, constitutes a system of airshafts through which, during the prevalence of westerly winds, the noxious gases of the sewer are forced into the cells. This reversed system of ventilation is suffocating In the extreme, and the odor often has the effect to rtvene the process of digestion The prison is on the ground floor, and Includes a space of sixty feet In length by eighteen In width and sixteen In height. The space is further subdivided into a corridor and six ceils, ten by eleven bv thirteen feet each.
The corridor Is ventilated by three windows, all on one side, and presenting in their aggregate an air surface of about twenty-seven feet, less the superficial area of the bars by which thev are obstructed. The are ventilated from the corridor by an opening over the door of each, ol lour feet superficial area, and by the Interspaces between the boards composing the roof of each ceil. There Is, also, a range of lour cells upon an inner corridor, differing from those described only in having no windows upon the corridor, and In having the escapepipe of the water closet on the upper floor, emptying into one of them, and distributing Its contents on the floor whenever the water-trough is obstructed. as is often the case. The Tn Dumber of lodgers in these tea cells is about scventy-Cvc.
On a fall accommodations, tueh tu they art, bare been furnished fortbree hundred and eighty-seven men and women, which is rather closer packing than a drover, bavins an eye to proht and would be willing to pack his cattle. The qnsnUty of air from this wretched mass of humanity la expected to breathe amounts to sufficient to supply their respiratory necessities for two hours and a half, supposing It to be perfectly pure at the outset, after which tune -It becomes positively injurious to health and life; but when the fact is taken into consideration that the air is already contaminated by the fool gases forced backward from the sewer, and, for- thennorc, by the exhalations and accumulated evacuations from the bodies of the filthy wretches who nightly occupy these cells, it la a marvel that any constitution can be found strong enough to endure a bot night la this suffocating hole. On nights when the winch la in a westerly direction, and impure gas, coaltar. are escaping from the Gas Works Into the sewer, the door leading from the office into the corridor has to be left open to give the Inmates a chance for their lives, and prevent actual suffocation, which even tha keeper fears would otherwise take place. The rooms on the second floor are somewhat more commodious, and yet not above criticism.
The rooms used for witnesses are insufficiently ventilated. The officers' dormitory is thlrty-ehrht by sixty-four feet The room is ventilated by Are windows; two on the north and three on the east -front, and contains lorty-nlnfe beds. Siently, however, as many as sixty-five officers ecn in the dormitory at a time. The officers charge of the building do every thlngin thelrpowerto keep the building In as good condition as possible, bat the fact Is the defects are beyond their reach, lithe plana of public buildings had to be aub: mitted to the criticism and revision of a sanitary expert, before being accepted, much expense I would be saved in making alterations, not to mention the greater economy of health and life. The reports were accepted and placed upon file.

THE MISTAKE. On Sunday last, an account appeared in Tax Tbirckr of the wholesale vaccination of the mates of a fashionable boarding-house on Wabash avenue, and of the inconveniences to which the boarders were, as a conseqence, subjected, The feeling otiindjy sympathy for the sufferers, which inspired the article In question, quite won the hearts of the ladles and gentlemen who tabernacled at this afflicted house, and It is to that we are Indebted for the knowledge of the facta which close the drama. It appears, then, that one of the of the house fell sick, and a doctor, whose creed Is that there la but one wav of healing, and Hahnemann Is Its prophet, was called In to the case. After an investigation, which revealed exttt- of the indent, he had. small-pox, and had him sent to Lake EosbllaL and informed the Board of Health of the lacU thereupon vaccination was Whenthe steward at LakeHospltalm man versed in the science of small-pox, came to examine the nattezd.

BUI for injunction some days since upon the heels of a decree rendered In the Cook Comity Circuit Court, perpetually enjoining the county from re- cognizing the contract the for heating and venu- latlng apparatus of the Insane Asylum and Poor with Walworth, Twohlg Furse, and ordering the Board of Supervisors to contract with the Northwestern Manofactarlng Company, astbe lowest and best bidder, complainant as a member of the Arm of Furee, a resident of assignee of all the right of Ihe firm under the contract enjoined, filed his bill jn this coart The biu asked that the county authorities he restrained from contracting under the decree, the allegation being, substantially, that the county was about to act In the premises. In viola-' Isttoncf the rights of Walworth, whose firm bad perfected an appeal from the decision of the ClrJ colt Court When the bill was filed, notice of an appUcatlon for an injunction was served, the application to be made on the 2Stb Instant, a day beyond the probability of the board being In session.
The effect of the notice was to prevent the Board of supervisors from awarding the contract as ordered by the decree. Mr. Dent, for the Northwestern Company, now tn ud submitted that the mattershoold now be heard; that it is not within the province of a flftfnpiainnnt to come into conn and arbitrarily set a dtetant day for the bearing of anch motion, and that the public interest wo old be subserved by a present bearing. Judge Blodgett thought In such a case there should be a speedy bearing; that the public boilness should not be unreasonably delayed upon the simple option and motion of the person filing the bilL If Tt were otherwise, a man might file a bill and give notice that he would apply i jr an injunction atx months hence, and thus get the benefit of the Injunction which would never have been grunted. He thought there was a clear right to call up the matter at an earlier day.
Mr. Wblton, representing complainant, stated that If the board should convene between now and the day he had fixed for the hearing, he would como In and take the matter up, otherwise on that opt, aa be would then have no cause for Injunction, he would dismiss bis bUL Mr-Dent supposed the Court would sot imoose a bargain upon him. It was simply a question of right. The decree of the Circuit Court requires the board to make the contract on Wednesday, and he thought he had a right to the full benefit Of.hls decree- Judge Drummond thought It was not competent for a party to fix a time so far ahead as to embarrass the part; by the Injunction, but It is the right of the party to whom notice has been given, to come in and have the matter disposed of a reasonable time. At the same time the Coart supposed the appeal would operate against the Thamatter was then taken op, the bill same remarks made when The Court decided that the application to thlaconrt came too late.

Johns. Miller etaia. This was an action of debt on a bond, dated October 3S6S. the bond being Id the usual fora, conditioning that tfte principal shall faitbfnlJy comply with all the provisions ot lav In relation to the duties and business to distillers, and pay all penalties Incurred or fines imposed for a violation of any of the said provisions, etc. The penalty of the bond waa the aa.
aamnum laid at $20,000. Tbe breach alleged was me non-payment of tax assessed, and penalties for non-payment. During the month of October, 1563, spirits were distilled and the return showed leas than so per cent of the producing capacity. The assessment made amounted to $8,440, and the sum alleged to be actually dns was $6,406, with penalty of per cent a month from Oune 1,1669. Defendant pleaded specially that upon the 2oth day of October, 1663, his still blew np, when he notified the proper officer, and yielded his distillery over to the government agents, who, aa In the case of a suspension of work- sealed the tabs and locked the furnace.
The distillery remained thus closed during several days, when work was recommenced. Dorlngtne suspension, defendant distilled no The government also claimed the defendant was farther liable for having hi Us tubs wort beer, while he suspended operations, in Violation of lav. Defendant answered to this that the mash. was In the custody of the government, and that owing to the i explosion be could not, even If be had so Intended, make The Court found for defendant. As to the last the having ot mash, In tbe toos, dating the time of suspension, the court (Blodgett) thought that in the otter absence of Intent to convert it Into spirit, and In view of the Impossibility of so converting it, the distiller con'd nut be held amenable to the penalties of the law.
Tbe act contcmolates a voluntary bus pension, and does not meet tbe exigency of an accidental bursting of tbe still, which enforced a suspension of work. As to the SO per cent clause or its breach, the Court saw nothing in the case to make It an exception to the rule laid down by Judge Drummond in respect to the noo-llablllty of distillers for a tax assessed upon property not produced. Here the distillery blew up, and the government held possession of his works. Taking out tbe days be did not and conld not work, be bad returned, however, 80 per cent. liIVSOfEK IN CHANCESY.

The prayed Injunctions to restrain the collection of assessments under the so per cent clause of the Revenue law. They came up on motion to issue the Injunctions. The bills showed that tbe complainants had paid, and tendered to pay, all the taxes assessed upon them, excepting such tax as was Imposed under the SO per cent danse, upon spirits which they had never manufactured. Opposed to tbe motion was urged the statute 19 act of 1366) wnlch provides that no suit shall be maintained In any court for the recovery of any tax alleged to have been erroneously or Illegally assessed or collected, until after appeal to the Commissioner, and the amendatory statute of March, which provides that so salt for tbe purpose of restraining the assessment: or collection of tax shall bo maintained to any court. The injunction was In each case refused.
Judge Drummond (Blodgett concurring) stood these provisions of the law to be that when, In conformity with the mode pointed out by law, a tax la imposed, then the presumption shall be that it is collectable, prima facie, If the officers have followed tbe routine prescribed, in order to enable the collection. It was foreseen that technical errors might be made, and the law steps In to say the collection shall not be Interfered with on this account. This It Is competent for con' gresa to legislate upon, for there la still given to the party aggrieved the ordinary remedy by salt At law against the wrong doer, and tbentthe government steps in and assumes the amount ot the Judgment The question was not an open one In this court, and the whole current of decisions concur In remitting the parties to the common law remedy.
