THE STATE CAPITAL. No-Quorum Day in Both Houses —Condition of Busi ness. Temper of the Senate on the Ques tion of an Adjourned Session. - Proposed Amendments to the Act Incorporating the Union Stock-Yards. Another Batch of Railroad Bills Reported in the House. Special Dispatch to' The Chicago Tribune, CONDITION OF BUSINESS. Springfield, April 21.—0n0-thlrd of tho Houso mot this morning. Prayer was offered for the wholo House,- though two-thirds of it seems to bo past praying fpr. The; Senate la in’ even a more hopeless condition. On Saturday many members wont homo, and a squad wont to St.-Louis to boo tho sights. Nearly every dis trict has a delinquent member. Of the Cook County members, there woro present Messrs. Bradwell, Forrior, Hopkins, and Wayman, not quite ono-flfth of tho delegation. It is no won der tho session has boon drawn out. Everyday there is not a quorum is a day lost. There will ho no business douo until to-morrow, tho even ing mooting of tho Senate being merely a con trivance to ovado tho Constitution. An ad journment this week Is out of tho question. Mr. Sanford wont homo with tho Rail road bill in his pocket. When ho returns, tho Subcommittee will have to moot and pass urion the amendments, and the full Committee must review Us work. It is not likely, there fore; that tho bill will got boforo tbo Senate until Wednesday. Tbcro may bo a protracted debate, occupying a day or two. Anyway, it will bo Thursday or Friday beforo tbo bill roaches tho House, and if it is much amended, tho House will disagree. A Committee of Conference may take another day, going over to next week*. Tho General Appropriation bill has not passed tho Senate, and it will have a thorny road to travel in tho Houso. Tho Penitentiary report has not boon touched, and on that suh- J ect there aro a dozen speeches to bo delivered. It will bo impossible, therefore, to adjourn until next week, and as tho next pay-day comes on tho Ist of May. probably that will bo tho. last day of tho session. Tho Houso worked illegally for an hour this morning, and then broke up on o coll of tho House, tho following members not answering to their names : Armstrong (Qrun-Tlollca, Rogers, dy), Jackson, Rountree, ArmHtrong (La-James, Sawyer, Salic), Jeeaup, Scanlon, Barkley. Kami, Scctt, Bishop (ilcncnry)Lerama, Bonne, Booth, Lowiu, Blmw, Bryant, Lomax, Shorm&n, Bullard, Loomis, Bhumway, Casey, Marsh, Smith, Caaaccly, McDonald, Snow, Carpenter, McQoo, Boulo, Condon.

Tho Senate 1b about evenly divided on the pro priety of bolding an adjourned .session. Many of the Sonatora are exoroieed as-to how they should vote. Wore the vote to bo taken by secret ballot there would bo an overwhelming majority for another mooting, Just as there would bo a majority against a Railroad bill in both Houses if tho voto wore secret. 13ut In tho Senate aro many sprouting Congressmen whoso ambition spreads out to Washington. They have a wholesome fear of their constituents, and will voto against on adjourned session or dodge. Those who novpr oxpoct to bo ro-olcotod will make the most of tholr little brief authority, and prolong tho session four mouths next winter. Every unmarried man will voto to como back; so will tho widowers and thoso whoso • wives aro severe. Ono Senator, of a pious turn of mind, has decided to vote for an adjourned session because, having examined tho Bible', bo found nothing prohibit ing it. " Thou shalt not steal ” five dollars aday from tho State of Illinois has direct reference to tho adjourned session, and possesses peculiar force in that connection. Seriously, thoro is not much to ho hoped from tho Senate. A sot of men who voted to remain idle fortwo days at this etago of tho session, are capable of “ stratagems and spoils' 1 of any kind,and tho chances are rather in favor of another mooting. No gobd reason has boon adduced for thus picking tho people's pockets of between 8100,000 and 8200,000. ANOTHER BOARD. Mr. Morrison introduced a bill providing for a Board of Eire Directors forthelrvingtonAgricul tural College—ono from each of tho following counties: Washington, Clinton, Jefferson, Marion, and Perry. These gentlemen are to ho paid their actual expenses, and ore to appoint and fix tho compensation of a Secretary and Treasurer. The bill was committed to tho Committee on Stato Institutions, which has boon sitting for two months on a bill appropriating 810,000 to tho College. This is one of tho 800 bills that will die tho death of tho unrighteous. THE MILITIA. Tho Militia bill, intended to reorganize tho military powor of tho Stato apd increase it in numbers and ofiioiouoy, was rood a first time. In spilo of its extraordinary length, its provis ions are believed to bo viso. A synopsis of tho bill has been published. TIME OF ELECTING SCHOOL DIRECTORS. Mr. Snow reported a bill from the Committee Du Education changing tho timo of holding elec tions of School Directors from Saturday to Fri day. This is out of dofcrouco to tho religious Sentiment of tho Sovonth-Day Baptists, whoso Sabbath is observed on Saturday, and out of consideration for tho ladies who may ho running for Directors, and wboso domes tic duties are supposed to accumulate on that day. Tho bill was ordered to a second reading. THE UNION STOCK YAIIDS. Mr. Rankin's House bill amends tbo act in corporating tbo Union Block Yards by adding tbo following: Provided, that said Company shall not bo permit ted to make charges for hay, straw, corn, or other, ar ticles used for the subsistence of animals in their care, exceeding in amount CO per cent additional to the cur rant market nrlco of such hay. straw, corn, or other articles supplied by them for tho subsistence of such animals.

Tbo bill providing that trains pood not stop at crossings when tho grade was ovor 80 feet to the mile—-a bill In its original shape calculated to facilitate collisions, was reported back favorably, with a provision that flagmen should bo stationed at such crossings. There should have been another provision that the flagmen should not sloop at their posts, and then tbo bill would bavo boon reasonable per haps. This bill is intended to apply to tbo Northwestern Rond. Tbo Casey bill, allowing railroads which run to tbo State lino to purchase or bo consolidated with their extensions in an ptbor State, was reported with a rooommeuda tlon that it do pass. Tho Immediate application of this bill la not apparent Just yot. THE PEORIA COURT-HOUSE. Mr. Starr introduced a bill providing that whenever 500 voters shall sign n petition to that clToot, tho question of building a Oourt-IIouHO, jail, or poor-houso shall bo submitted to a voto of tho county.

AMUSEMENTS* M’VKJKER’b THEATRE. Tho now play entitled, “ Ono Hundred Years Old,” from tho French of “La Contonaire,” was produced at MoVickor’s last evening for tho first timo in Chicago, introducing, in the princi pal character, Mr. Mark Smith, ono of tho very host of American actors. A good audionco was in attendance, and manifested much enjoyment m tho extremely interesting play, and in the manner of Its acting. Tho story of the drama, briefly given, is as follows: Tho play consists of foor nets. In tho' first the old man, Jacques Fauvel, celebrates lus 100 th birthday. This also introduces his grandson, George Fauvel , and George's two daughters, Camille and Juliette. The latter la married, and has become seriously compro mised with one Max De Maugars. She confesses all to Camille, who resolves to shield her at any cost. De Maugars hopes to work through this resolve of hers, and obtain bor hand and largo fortune. In tho second act, De Maugars learns that Camille's hand is at tho disposal of Jacques Fauvel, who, by his extreme ago, has wonderful power in reading the characters of those ho meets. Uo also discovers that violent anger may kill tho old man, and when ho is repulsed in his suit for Cutntto, ho works tho old man into a passion, in hopes of killing him. But Fauvel sscs his aim, ana docs not allow him to attain It. CnmilU In summoned to her sister in her shamo, and is gone for fifteen days, no ono knows where. Fauvel Is passionately attached to her, and they conceal her flight from him. At last she returns, and refuses to toll where she has been. Bho asks them to trust her. Her father casts her off, but her betrothed coufldos in her and trusts her. In tho third act, Do Maugars pursues Camille and trios to induce her to marry him by threat ening bor. Juliette appears, and Camille re news her determination. to shield her, oven at tho cost of sacrificing herself. Just as tho nuptial contract bolwcon Jiene d’Abby ond CumWa is to bo signed. Jacques Fauvel leurns what ho supposes to'ho Camille's shame, and she will not vindicate horsclf by exposing Juliette. Than De Maugars declares himself Camille's partner in shamo, and tries to drivo bor to marry him. but sho indignantly scorns him. Tho old man trios, In ovory way, to got her to declare her in nocence, and when sho refuses ho goes away lu despair, but comes back to declare his trust In her. Xu tho fourth act tho firm of Fauvol As Sou la bankrupt, but tho old man saves his grandson from suicide aud incites him to work. There aro 000,000 francs needed to moot tho liabilities of tho house, and this sum is obtained moat unexpectedly from ono to whom 23,000 francs had been left in trust to pay a loan. This loan was made by Jacques Fauvel seventy-seven years before, and he hold tho borrower’s note. Tho sum had increased enormously, and was more than enough to restore tho firm to a solvent con dition. De Maugars still persisting in his endeavors to scare Camille into marrying him as the only way to regain hor good name. Is challenged by ho? betrothed, and, as he falls mortally wounded, tolls enough of tho

truth to clear hor aud mako hor happy. Tho construction of tho plot is skillful and effective, and its elaboration abounds plentifully in fine touches of good, pure, healthful senti ment. The play can bo commended heartily both for its dramatic and its moral merit. As presented by Mr. Smith, tho character of the' 'centenarian is invested. with a powerful interest throughout. Its clement of pathos is brought out with tho power of a lino actor, whoso raro art is shown in tho unvarying fidelity to the idea of oxtromo ago and grand dignity. It is a downright luxury to listen to Hr. Smith's splendid reading, with its every word and intonation, so completely, so conscientiously and so resonantly rendered.

Davis, Chairman of tho Exoonttve Committee, submitted a quarterly report, stating that it would bo remembered that, at tho annual .meeting of tho Board of Directors, hold in Jan uary lost, tho reports of tho Superintendent, Physician, and Ladies’ Committee differed so much in regard to matters of importance in ref erence to the management of tho*Homo during the preceding year, that tho Board appointed a committee to Investigate fully into tho mutter ' alluded to in said reports. Tho Committee ap pointed discharged tho duty assigned promptly .and faithfully, and, in their report, stated that tho facts alleged in tho annual reports of tho Physioian ana Ladies’ Committee woro fully cor roborated by tho evidence they hod received, and they recommended tho discharge of somo of tho inmates, and tho establishment of moro rigid disoiplino in tho Homo, and moro striot conformity to tho rules in regard to tho admission and discharge of inmates. Tho Ex ecutive Committee, after duo deliberation, ac cepted tho recommendation, hoping that tho Superintendent, Mr. T. M. Van Court, would cheerfully co-oporato in' an effort to correct whatever abuses existed, and to moro faithfully enforce tho rules in regard to the admission, dis charge, and conduct of. inmates. Instead of doing so, howvvor, ho pursued a course with tho inmates so Injudicious, and dictated such altera tions to tho Executive Committee, that his re moval became a necessity. Mr. Albert D. Hager was appointed to fill tho vacancy, and took pos session of tho Homo April 1, and during tho brief period which has elapsed has shown a most commendable degree of energy, tact, and ability in tho work of sotting tho house in order. Tho Committee look confidently to tho future for moro satisfactory results than havo boon ob tained in tho past. A * proposition bad boon received for the purchase of the Homo property for . tho sum of $35,000. The Committee recommended tho Board of Directors to authorize the Executive Committee to soil the property on the best pos sible terms, on tho|conaltion that tho Homo may continue tho ocaup&ncy of tho promises for ono year from tho first of tho present month without pay otoont. This would give ample time to ao ouro a now location andcomploto a now building before vacating the old one. Tho Committee also recommended the appointment of a com mittee to ooafer with tho Common .Council and urge the importance of including in tho Appro {mation bill of tho present year the percentage iconao fund to which tho Homo is entitled un der charter, and, in c&so of such appropriation, to waive the payment of the $13,000, at least un til such time os the city shall havo moro fully re covered from tho groat fire of October, 1871. Tho report was discussed at considerable length, some of the members expressing the hope that tho city would bo sued for the amount. It was finally adopted, however, and the follow ing Committee appointed by the Chair: Messrs. C. N. Holden, Wells, Morey, Myers, and Bowen. FINANCIAL REPORT. H. G.

The late Superintendent insisted, in opposition to tho annual report of tho Executive Commit tee, which stated that tho Homo, under tho lato management, would havo boon several thousand dollars in debt the past year, had it not boon for $3,000 received from the city, that tho financial report for 1872 showed a balance to tho credit of tho institution, after deducting current expenses, of $12,590.73, omitting to state that $12,000 of those funds was money duo from tho city and not appropriated last year, and only obtainable by a suit at law. Ho states that $3,880.75 was collected in oxcosa of expenditure in 1872, but omits to state that $3,000 of thoso receipts wore from tho Burr estate and tho city, moat of it funds which could not bo used, but hod to bo loaned out.
