The Receiver of tho Lamar Insurance Com pany in tho cause Edwin Burnham ond Edwin R.

That tho said People's Insurance Company claims to bo ablo to pay from its assets but 25 cents on tho dollar upon its liabilities, and from such facts os tho under signed has boon ablo to ascertain concorniugtho truth of such claim, ho bolievea that said 25 per cent Is all that ’could bo collected in case of a suit brought against tho said People’s Company. That said last named Company has wholly sus pended and gone out of business ; that its office and such effects as It has are located in San Fran cisco,more.than 2,000 miles distant from Chicago, and cannot bo reached, except at great trouble and oxponso. Tho undersigned has reason to boliovo that ho con, by going in person to San Francisco, settle, adjust, and compromise tho said claim upon oquitablo toms; and he also believes that it will bo for tho best interests of tho creditors that ho bo permitted to make a sot* tlomont of said claim and adjust, and liquidate, and discharge all tho matters of difference be tween the said two companies, and ho thoroforo prays that an order or decree may bo ontorod ac cordingly.

OF INTEREST TO FOLIcr-HOLDERS. Points of interest to policy-holders came up before Judge Tree, yesterday, in Wotzlor v. the Illinois Mutual Fire Insurance Company, a Com pany which is fighting the claimant on the tech nical ground that citizens of Chicago ore, under tho charter of tho Company, unable to sue in any other than Madison County, the- Chicago courts having no jurisdiction. It was doubtful whether the special act giving the Company a charter was not repealed, as regards this clause, and His Honor so construed it, hold ing that where legislation of so extraordinarily liberal a oboracterwas open to two constructions, tbo Court was not bound to interpret too rigidly against tbo interests of those who might suffer at tho expense of the corporations. Tho case came up on the plea of the defend ant, sotting up tho aforesaid clause in tho char ter as to all suits being brought in tho Madison County Circuit Court. Plaintiff demurred that tho plea woa not well plod (on technical grounds, of no interest to tho general reader); that tho charter was special, and had been repealed, in effect ' by the now Constitution, as well os by subse quent acts ,• and that tho plea failed to set forth tho fact that tho Company possessed an office, and was represented by oflicers in tho county where they wore to bo sued, whore service could bo bad, and therefore, the plea was not good. Tho counsel for tho plaintiff having argued at - some length in support of those positions, tho other side replied, the substance of his argu ment being, that ho relied on the act creating tho Company, and that the plaintiff had his remedy iu Madison County, whore the Company could moke a substantial defense. Tho Court, referring to tho act granting tho charter, said this statute was claimed to havo conferred extraordinary privileges on an insur ance company. It was a question whether tho Legislature bad tbo power to grant such priv ileges ; but, admitting it to bo a matter of doubt tho Court wos not bound to construe tho statute to havo boon intended by tbo Legislature to give tho corporation all that was claimed for it. Tbo effect of such a statute would bo in tho case of a citizen of Chicago suing this Company, that ho would bo practically debarred from a remedy, and tbo Com a could defeat his efforts to force them to a unont. For instance, although tho Com pany might bo doing business in any city and county of tho Stato to tho extent of hundreds of thousands of dollars; yet, by keeping neither oflicers nor offices in Madison, wboro tbo Company must bo sued, no remedy could bo had by a claimant whoso loss tho company had refused to pay. (In this case tho claimant’s loss is not disputed; hfs claim Las been duly adjusted; and there is no ques tion of tho Company’s liability to pay.) There could bo no service, and the defendant, while making no resistance to the suit, could not bo made to pay. It seemed to the Court necessary that defendants should set forth that thoy had, in reality, in Madison County, tho offices and oflicers that tho plaintiff ought to find in Modi eon County, if ho wont there, as tho defendant maintained he should do, in order to lawfully sue them. Therefore, without passing on tho other points, ho should sustain tho demurrer to tho plea as to want of jurisdiction of this Court, with tho leave to tho defendant to plead ever m five days. HEAVY SUIT FOU THE LOSS OP A DAUOHTIIB. A suit, for $25,000 damages, for lost) of tho servicesof a daughter, woo yesterday brought luthoOJrcnit Court, against Theodore Uonoy aett, by .Thomas Bmlth, whose daughter, Mary Ann, died, on Friday last, in child-birth. Tho circumstances of this Huit. aa represented by tho plaintiff, aro of on excoodinglymolanoholy char actor. Mr. Smith is represented to bo a man of respectability, whoso family, up to tho matters to bo related, has boon a source of pride and joy to thoir parents. Tho daughter In question was, at tho time of her premature death, about 17 years of ago. Bho hod always borne a truly ex cellent character for industry, lldellty, and gener al good conduct. Bho was of unusually attractive oppearance, a well grown, comely, healthy-look lug girl as one would wish to see. After leaving school, she worked in a factory, and there earned the respect and esteem of all who know her. After that, she hired as second servant to Mrs. Honoysett, the wife of a baker on West Madison street, her wages being paid to her parents. More, it is related, young Konoysotf, tho defend ant In this suit, who was engaged us salesman In hie father's store, and lived in the house, suc ceeded In accomplishing the girl's min, under promise of marriage. When her situation be came too apparent to bo longer concealed,-the young man refused to hoop his promieo, and tho girl wont homo to her mother and confessed her fault. The defendant proving deaf to all appeal, proceedings In bastardy wore Instituted for tho purpose of holding Theodore in ball, and that .formality having boon gono through, tho caao was con tinued until yesterday to owalt the result of tho Slrl's stale. On Friday she was taken ill, and led tho same day. Tho offspring of tho unfor tunate girl died with her; hence the suit. AN UNSATISFACTORY TRADE. lo - tho Superior Court, yesterday. Nelson Soy-. mour brought an action against William Claw son, praying for an Injunction to stay proceed ings. Complainant about tho 28th of March, 1872, ownoa Lot No. 12. in Block No. 0, in tho villagoof Thornton Station, upon which wore valuable Improvements, consisting of a $14,000 flonring-mlll. Clawson, at tho same timo, claim ed possession of a farm in tho County of Henry, described as tho northeast }{ of See. 17, In Town ship 10, north of Range 8, cast of tho 4th P. M., which hod boon, prior to that timo, sold by Sheriff on an execution to one An drew Crawford for about $4,444,28, who hold certificate. Tho right to redeem tho land was about to expire on tho IDth of April, 1872; Clawson, who claimed to bo a practical miller, proposed to purchase Seymour's mill, paying' a part by convoying tho land and certain llvo stock thereon. Seymour asked $14,000 for his prop erty, Clawson valuing his, If f roe of Inoumbranco, at SIO,OOO. An exchange was agreed upon. Sey mour engaging to soil his property for $14,000, taking in payment tho farm at SIO,OOO, loss tho sum of money required to clear It of inomn branoo, and tho farm stock, and tho balance in money in five equal annual instalments, with 10 per cent interest. Clawson agreed to purchase tho mill upon these tonne, and to secure tho nionoy payments by a mortgage on tho mill, and delivered the deed of the farm to Seymour, who redeemed it from tho solo to Crawford,' paying him $4,888.00, leaving tho stun of $5,102.84 to be applied towards payment of tho mill property. After crediting Clawson with all payments, the sum of $8,403 remained to ho paid, as mentioned, la llvo eqnal annual instal ments. Upon tho execution and de livery of tho deed, Seymour entered Into possession of tho farm, and Clawson began working tho mill, Seymour was not able subse quently to got Clawson to accept a deed of tbo mill property, and execute tbo uotos and tho so curing mortgage. Clawson temporized and re fused to complete tho purchase. Seymour claims fhat while ho has improved the farm property, Clawson has so allowed tho mill prop erty to depreciate in valuo from want of proper, caro and attention, that it Is now not sullioiont security for tho unsettled part of tho original transaction. Seymour shows that one of tho yearly installments is now duo, with a year’s In terest, in all $2,620.00. Clawson refuses now to receive a conveyance of tho mill property, or to execute tho notes and mortgages, and began In August lost an action against Seymour for tho farm, etc., who now prays for an Injunction re straining that proceeding, and summons to or der Clawson to appear in court, to make answer unto all those matters. SUIT FOR THE POSSESSION OF A VESSEL. Wallaco Ballon and Joel Taylor, of this State, yesterday brought suit against John Stupiuski, of Detroit, Mien., for specific performance of a contract to sell them tho vessel Floroita, of De troit. Thoy allego that on tho 21st March last, they contracted to buy tho vessel for tho sum of $19,000, and paid a sum of monoy on tho agree ment to bind tho bargain. Tho vessel was then in Milwaukee, bound for Buffalo, and tho agree ment was to tho offoot that the complainants wore to take her off Stupiuki’a hands Immodi-. atoly, run her to Buffalo, N. V., for which port she .was under chariot, and continue tho engagement of tho Captain for tho balance of tho season. Tho necessary deeds wore prepared and presented to the de fendant for completion, when ho refused to h&vo anything whatever to do with the matter. Wherefore, tho complainants pray an injunction restraining tho defendant assigning the prop erty ; for an account of tho oaminga of the ves sel, from tho dato of tho completion of tho con tract, and for specific performance. SALVAGE. Williams and others, tho owners of the steam ing J. W. Peabody, yesterday brought suit against tho schooner Sardinia, for salvage, in tho United States District Court, admiralty side. Tho libelant affirms that on tho 4th of No vember, 1871, the Sardinia was lying at tho rail road wharf, Dalatb, without tho protection of either a breakwater or harbor, when a hurricane sprang np, and tho schooner was in imminent. danger of being wrecked. In this emergency the master of the Sardinia sent for the steam tug so assist them, and tho J. W. Peabody put out to her, aud, after infinite danger and diffi culty, drew her Into u place of safety, Thu schooner’s timbers wore already starting, aud she could not much longer have held together. Tho owners of tho tug rolato that their vessel, was need only for the towage of Williams’ own vessels in Lake Superior in tho neighborhood of Dulatb. Tho vessel salvaged was valued at SIO,OOO, and her cargo at SBO,OOO. SEWING MACHINE ATTACHMENT PATENT. Tho Fuller Tuck Chooser Patent Infringement suit, which is familiar to most of tho readers of this column, was yesterday up before Judges Drummond and Blodgett, who will moot in con sultation shortly, and decide whether there has been any infringement or not of tho patent. The suit is of some importance, for tho reason that tbo plaintiff is tho owner of both tbo Fuller and Hose tuok-creaaers. which practically inoludo all creasers of tho needle bar system used in tho United States, and the amount involved would consequently bo very large. The matter was argued exhaustively, and there is nothing new to add to what has already been said on the subject in Toe Tiubdxe. THE “NEWS” FBINTZNO COMPANY.

Last week another sad lifo ended in Chicago.’ On Sunday afternoon a few friends gathered afound tho coffin of a woman in the parlor of tho Grand Central Hotel, to render tho final obsequies.. Tho femoral lacked every element of grahdour. Tho mourners woro not many, and tho trappings of woo woro not expensive. Tho service of tho Episcopal Church was road abovo the remains, and tho grief was not loss sincere that forror paraona wept. Thon through tho mist and rain thoy boro tho coffin through tho dismal streets, and laid it to temporary rest at Gracol&nd Cemetery., The scone was not how nor strange— A rainy burial on a sullen day. When all tbo bc&von showers Its boarded gloom, is not bo common a eight, it may ho said, that it nood oxcito special comment. The death and burial of which wo speak, however, had more than ordinary elements of'sadness. The deceased lady was of Portland, Conn. Sho had been for some years a widow/ and was about 80 years of ago. Sho had frequently visit ed in Ohicago, hut had not until recently made this, city her permanent residence. She came hero for the last time in September of last year. Most of tbo time which she has passed in Chi cago has been with relatives, among whom is on aunt living on the North Side. Her hus band was tbo nephew of an eminent lawyer of good family in Portland. Ho died throe years ago, leaving as fruit of his marriage, a son, who is now 0 years of ago. Tbo lady came to the Clarendon House, on North Clark street, soon after her first arrival at the West. A gentleman of high business standing, an old acquaintance of hors, boarded at the same place, ana paid her such attention as any gentleman might pay to any intelligent and accomplished la dy. The intimacy seemed to boof a Platonic char acter, and excited little remark, although it was known that tbo gentleman was married, but was living apart from bis wife, and bad a suit for di vorce pending In tbo courts. The lady paid her own bills with drafts on Now York up to tho last month of her stay at tho Clarendon, when thoy wero paid by hor frioud. She loft tho Clarendon ostensibly because hor room was not pleasant. On tho. 11th of last mouth tho lady and gen tleman registered at tho Qrand Central, and oc cupied adjoining rooms, with a door between. Tho social relations of tho lady with all at tho hotel wero most agreeable. The time was passed among tho guests in receiving calls, card parties, and tho hko trivial occupations, and if there wore lurking suspicions of ovil they wore ignored, or most guardedly spoken. About two weeks ago tho lady was taken sick, and a physi cian was called in who has tho reputation of as sisting ladies who are in need of delicate ser vices. Ho informed hor friends that she was suffering from inflammation of tho womb, and gavo her sedatives and such other remedies as seemed suitable to her case. Bho began to got better, and continued to mend until last Friday, when sho thought herself sufficiently recovered to leave *her bod. Bho rose, dressed herself completely, and walked about for a while, when she was seized with a sudden faintness and foil to the floor iu a state of unconciousnoss. Hor friends in groat alarm sent for tho physician who had been previously called. Ho came, but told them that there was no hope. Sho partially revived, and expressed regret that she had not followed tho wishes of the doctor. On Sat urday. death ensued. On Sunday, sho was buried under the circumstances already detailed, Dr. Dorsett, of tho Episcopal Church, officiating. It was tho iutontiou of tho friends to send tho remains at once to relations in Oon nooticut, but superior advico caused them to so far modify their plans as to havo them placed la a vault at Gracoland until Wednesday. A reporter of Tue Tbibune visited tho physi cian alluded to, but ouly a small amount of in formation was obtained from him, and that not of a satisfactory character. Tho Doctor stated that a small amount of blood was observed by friends on tho underclothing of the deceased at tho time ofher death. Lest this should oxcito suspicion ho told them that it was caused by hem orrhage of the womb, and added that, if tho slightest suspicion attached to tho case, ho hoped that there would bo an investigation. Ho said that tho hemorrhage was insufficient to havo caused death. Doatli must havq resulted from a rupture of tho heart, or somo of tho blood-vessels intimately connected with it. How this could havo occurred was not explained In such a manner -as to ho perfectly clear to tho reporter, but tho Doctor argued that tho thing was very possible in tho stale of weakness iu which tho patient at that time was. So tho case has Its elements of mys tery as well as its elements of sadness. The reason given for tho delay in taking the remains Eastward Is that a sister of the dead lady has lust deceased at Joliet, and it is desired to send both the bodies together. An investigation is improbable, us tho Chief of Police will not oct without tho concurrence of the Coroner, and the Coroner will not act except upon tho complaint of some Intorcutod party. THE HUNTER ESTATE. Over Forty Suits for the Dower of Widow Mclioll in the Above lands Restored. History of one of tho Earliest Spec ulations in Chicago Eeal Estate. The Firat Venture of the First Western ' land Association of New York Capitalists, Contest for Dower in Valuable Lands on tbe North Bide. Yesterday, in tho Criminal Court, Francis B. NlohoU, of tho City of Brooklyn, reinstated over forty salts in Chancery for widow’s dowor, in a valuable real estate on tho North Sido. Tho particulars of this litigation will bo found of un usual interest. It appears that Mrs. Nlcholl Is tho robot of the late Edward A. Nicholl, who’ died on tho 24th day of March, 1859, and who was possessor of tho roal estate subsequently mentioned, in which she claims dowor. About tho Ist of December, 1834, an associa tion was formed, In Now York,, for tho purchase and salo of Western lands, and it was mutually agrood by tho members that lauds intended to bo purchased should bo convoyed to, and tbo the legal title invested in one Charles Butler, who would soli thorn for the common uso and benefit of tbo Association. About tho Ist of December, 1834, in pursuance of tho agreement, a contract was mado and entered into on behalf of tho Association with Arthur Bronson, for tho purchase of certain lands in Chicago, and ho did transfer and convoy • those lands to Frederick Bronson. Tho consideration paid for tho prop erty was 6 100,000, wliioh was mode up by all tho members of tho Association, ouch contributing a certain proportion. On the Ist of July, 1835, Charles Butlor Issued to tho various members separate certificates, defining tboir respective shares in a part of the purchased roal ostato called tho “ Hunter property,” and sotting forth that tho property was to be divided into 1,000 ports or shares of SIOO each, and that tho inter est of oach of tho holders was to bo accounted for in money and as a personal interest, and not as land, when tho sold land oamo to bo sold. On the 6th September, 1835, Frederick duly trans ferred tne Hunter Property to Ch&rlos Butlor, in fee simple, yet the transfer was made in trust for the nonefit of tho members of the Associa tion. . Edward A. NiohoJJ, late husband of oratrix, was from its beginning and for several years, a member of tho Association and a share holder in the tf Hunter Property.” On the Ist April, 1840, Charles Butlor mado a declaration of trust, in writing,' sotting forth that ho hold the, property* for tho benefit of Nlcholl and others who hod contributed to its purchase. Nicholl owned six-eighteenths of ono-b&lf of the property, Charles Butlor one half, tho remainder being owned by John S. Bus ing, Chester Clark, Benjamin F. Butler, William

During that period farmers wore busily engaged sowing wheat, and a good deal of plow ing was done. Since that period it has boon cold and somewhat stormy, and a little snow has fal len. The last heavy snow fell on tho 27 th of February, which wont off rapidly with tho worm weather of tho beginning of March. Notwithstanding tho occasional dreadful snow storms which besot this part of lowa in winter, and which are apt to discourage those who havo not been accustomed to a bleak aud now prairlo region, the abundant richness of tho soil, and the hooUhfulnoss of tho climate, continue to at tract emigrants from the East in largo num bers. Tho prominent features of Northwestern lowa, In a cllmal Ic point of view, ami which nro particularly noticed by now settlors, nro, tho general dryness and wonderful salubrity of tho atmosphere* tho short periods of muddy weather In spring and fall, tho occasional uupornbund auco of dust iu munmor when tho wind blows, and tho total absence of malarious diseases, llalu is expected in April and May. Autumn is a season of groat beauty, appearing like a long Indian summer. I have scon no rain Iu whiter; and, with tho exception of occasional seasons, very little snow falls, —not sufficient to make sleighing amount to much. Tho grass being frequently burnt off iu tho fall, there is nothing to hold tho snow which falls, and tho most of it Is blown Into tho hollows, or Into drifts. This winter wo have two very sovoro show-storms. During these blows, which are invariably from the Northwest, tho snow is so flno that It finds Is way through tho smallest aperture in a building; and, when at tho worst. It is impose!* bio to boo an object a fow yards distance, malt ing it particularly dangerous to travelers on tho open prairio, Whoro fences and buildings aro fow and far between. Tho soil of tho prairio is almost uniformly a noli loam, fortllo in corn, wheat, oats, and po tatoes. It boars wot weather and drouth well, and ’ls easily cultivated. Last year, heavy props of potatoes ami grain wore grown. Tho surface is gently rolling, approaching to hilly near tho streams. Springs and crooks aro nu merous, and good water is obtained' by digging a moderate depth. Fences aro not needed, cat tle boing required to bo horded. What timber wo have, away from Missouri Bottom, is mostly in ravines among tho hills near streams. Tho crooks and rivors aro moro or loss fringed with timber. Coalls abundant in tho neighborhood of Fort Dodgo. There is little, if any. government land not taken up, but tho railroad companies hold largo amounts, and a good doal is owned by speculators, immigrants with moans aro bo ginning to tako hold of tbo railroad sections: and tnero is’plenty of choice lands to select from. , . ; Attention is boing paid to planting forest trees, all kinds of which grow well after tho prairlo-sod has boon killed by a year or two’s cultivation. Nothing olso is wanted but tho growth of troos for shelter, and to break iho pioroing winds of tho prairio, to mako this a splendid country. O. THE COUNCIL. Nomination of Three Health Commissioners.
