Joseph Menu.!*, Mayor. - The communication was referred to tho Com mittee on Police. THE EXCHANGE OF GROUND, The Mayor sent in a communication stating that the Congress of tho United States passed an act authorizing tho Secretary of tbe Treasury to dispose of the Post-Office site. The State of Illinois bag passed the act of cession inquired. The Secretary of tho Treasury has addressed him a letter dated April 14, 1873, notifying him that Judge Drummond and N. B. Judd havo been appointed Commissioners on . the part of tho United States. Tho action of Congress was based on a memorial to tbe Secretary qf tbo Treasury, signed by the Mayor, members of the Common Council, Board of Education, Library Board, etc. The next step to be taken is tho selection of two Commissioners on the part of tho City of Chicago, and he nominates as such Com missioners Thomas Hoyno and Edwin H. Sheldon as suitable persons to act for tho city to ascertain the value of the property to be exchanged, and asks their confirmation, abstracts of title to both being procured for examination. Tho nominees of the Mayor were unanimously confirmed. PETITIONS. Petitions were'presented, and referred for a sewer in Van Buren street; for water-pipe in Emerald street and in Cleaver street, between Division and Bradley, for on increase of the pay of bridge-tenders. ORDERS. Orders directing the Comptroller to advertise for lots for the erection of engine houses near Lincoln and Erie, and on Indiana, between Noble and Bucker, were referred to the Com mittee on Fire and Water. The Board of Public Works was ordered to prepare an ordinance for a sidewalk ox# Roberts street, from Erie to Chicago avenue. VEHICLES. Aid. Bixon offered an ordinance so' amend ing the chapter in regard to vehicles that no person shall have any hack, cab, or team, or vehi cle for carrying any article or material for hire, without taking out a license for each one, the money paid for the licenses to be used as a street improvement fund. The object is to induce the coal-yards, beer znen, large firms, etc., to take out licenses. The matter was referred to the Committee on Licenses. THE CITY The City Treasurer reported that the balance on baud last ;April was 6821,322.19 ; during the last fiscal year lie had received 68,394,112.71, and paid out 68.825,875.37, leaving on hand 6889,- 559.58, BTBEZT IMPBOVEMENTS. The Board of Public Works submitted ordi nances for paving Kinzie street from State to Case, which was passed; for extending Quinu .street; for widening Bolden place from Belden avenue, which was passed; for extending Lane place to Sophia street, which was passed; for opening llouglas .avenue from Ullman street to Ashland avenue; for vacating part, of £lm street, for establishing the grade of Canal street at Sixteenth, for viaduct purposes. Those not passed were properly re ferred. The Board reported against the opening of Fifth avenue from Taylor to Twelfth. • The reports of Commissioners for paving Dearborn from Twenty-seventh to Twenty-ninth, Water, from Lake to Michigan avenue, Frank lin, from Chicago avenue to Division, Eagle, from Desplaines to Hoisted, Price from Desplaines to Hoisted, .Calhoun place, from Clark to Dearborn, Jackson, from State to |Michigm avenue, Lake, east of Hoisted, Wells, from Randolph to Madison, Peoria, from Lake to Harrison, and Union, from Hubbard to Erie, were approved. WIDENING THE EIVEB. The Board of Public. Works also sent in the following, which was referred to the proper Committee: Ordered, That the Board of Public Works be, and they are, authorized to purchase of the Chicago, Bock Island k Pacific Railroad Company a piece of ground containing 17,830 square feet, lying adjacent to the river bank, upon tbo oast side thereof, and imme diately south of Twelfth street; and-to pay therefor the sum of $8,500, the sum ■to be included •In the nnnn.il appropriation for the year 1873. It is further ordered that the Board of Public Works be authorized and empowered to execute, on behalf of the City of. Chicago, os a fur ther • consideration of said purchase, an agreement granting to said Railroad Company the perpetual right of way for a railroad track across Twelfth street, un der the open approach of the bridge at that point ' The Board of Public Works reported that tho Fort Wayne Boad had offered to pay 825,000 towards the expense of the construction of a viaduct across its track at Twelfth street. It is estimated the amount will be nearly enough to cover the cost, and it is very necessary a viaduct should be built there, and, as by that offer horn the Railroad Company, it could now be secured with little expense to the city, the Board recom mended the offer be accepted. An ordinance to carry out tho recommenda tion wae submitted and referred to the Commit tee on Streets and Alleys, W. D., to report next Wednesday. MILWAUKEE A ST. PAUL. Aid. HoAvoy moved to take up the ordinance in reference to the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Road. Aid. Kehoe moved as an amendment to post pone for two weeks. The road was not doing' what it agreed to, and the officers knew it. He hadnotiiad a chance to get out there, and eee what was going on. Aid. Moore opposed the interminable delay. ~ Aid. Quirk said Mr. Kehoe wanted delay, since the Company was trespassing on his property ou Carroll street. It would be better to wait till that was settled. Aid. Kehoe told of his grievances. The road had done him all the harm it could, and he felt Independent. Aid, Lengacher favored delay to allow injured land-holders a chance to bring in amendments. Aid. Powell et&ted that Hr. Walker had told Aid. Kehoe his matter would be settled. He was In favor of postponing; if the damages to Kehoe. caused by laying tracks on Carroll street, in front of his property, had not been settled. Aid. Richardson moved to refer the matter to the Corporation Counsel for his opinion, bat sub sequently withdrew it. Aid. IfcAvoy’s motion was agreed to—yeas, 21; nays, 11—as follows; Picoe— Bowen, Dixon, McOeimiss, Coey, McAvoy wdwdL Stone, Pickering, Cufierton, McClowry, Powell fieatb. Miner, Moore, Cleveland, Quirk, Stoat, Schaff fcer, Carney, Brandt, and Woodman—2L r .4’ fl y»—Bichardson, Warren, Tracey, dowry, Bailey, O’Brien, Clark, Eckhardt, Hahr, Lengacher and Can- Aid. McQennise opposed the motion to post il 0 * M use^ess And uncalled for. Aid. Hoore stated that the ordinance did not *PPjy to Aid. Kohoe’s part of the city. Aid. Kehoe thought it would do no harm to postpone for two weeks, since it had been post poned so long. He moved to postpone for one "Wk. AM. Richardson saw no necessity for running r? 6 . “ing through. The weather was so had “at Aldermen had been unable to get out and We the ground. Aid. Carney favored postponement. No con •oennona Alderman would vote to take away the PWjonal right* of any member of the Council, ■ihemotion to postpone for one week was •greedto. CRUELTY TO ANIMALS. Ane ordinance for the prevention of cruelty was taken up and read. . AJd. Dixon moved to place it on file. am motion was lost. ilcGennifis offered an amendment, pro- Tiding for fining any driver of a one-horse street railway car-who allowed his horse to bo over loaded by permitting more passengers to get .on a car than could find seats. Aid. Bailoy moved to make it apply to two horse teams. Aid. SlcGerinies accepted. Aid. Stone moved to refer the whole matter back to the Judiciary Committee. It was agreed to. - CLOSING SALOONS. Tho ordinance for closing saloons at 11 o’clock was taken up. Aid. McAvoy protested that 11 was an early hour in a large city like Chicago, with so many hotels, on, whose behalf alone he spoke. He moved to insert half-past 11 instead of 11. . Aid. Mahr protested at the unjust discrimina tion against saloon-keepers in favor of hotels. Ho also objected to shutting np at 11, for the Council might adjourn late, and they might get no beer on tbe North Side. He had lived in the city nineteen years, and had never soon such works. ♦All the police did was to watch saloons, and let'thieves and murderers alone. Aid. McAvoy’a amendment was defeated— yeas, 14; nays, 19. Ald.Cullerton opposed the ordinance, since those they had were not enforced. The fact was that seven-eighths of the saloons were open Sunday. The orainance was passed—yeas, 23; nays, 10— McAvoy, Tracey, Kohoe, Eckhardt. Stout, Mohr, Lengacher, Cannon, and Brandt. INXEB-STATE ESPOSinON. The resolution directing tbe Board of Public Works to erect a temporary building on tbo Lake Park, between Monroe and Yanßuron streets, the money to bo furnished by the asso ciation, and the building not to remain beyond May, 1874, was taken up. Aid. McAvoy moved to so amend that tho building might remain longer if the Council consented. * The resolution was adopted. The Committee on Schools reported favorably on the resolution relative to the lease of the Dearborn School lot, and it was referred for en grossment. Tho Council adjonmed. NEW BOOKS. Legal Publications* THE CHANCERY JURISDICTION AND PRACTICE ACCORDING TO STATUTES AND DECISIONS IN THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, FROM THE EAR LIEST PERIOD TO 1873: Exemplified by a Com plete Record in Chancery, as Evolved in a Suit which Was Pending In the Federal Courts for More than a Quarter of Century, with Its Collateral Suits in the High Court of Chancery and the Court of Ex chequer in England, contrasted with Records in Illi nois and under the New York Code of Procedure; Showing the Practice from the Filing of the Bill to Full Discharge and Satisfaction of the Record, With an Appendix of Forms. By Edward Judson Bill, Author of 41 The Common Law Jurisdiction and ■ Practice, etc. Chicago: £. B. Meyers A Co. 1873 1 voL, 753 pages. In the fact that, out'of some 6,000 cases cited in this volume, fully 5,000 are Illinois decisions, the Illinois practitioner is furnished with strong presumptive evidence that the hook will be at least valuable to him as a a manual. Many consecutive pages throughout the work refer to Illinois cases alone: Its com pression into one volume tiill also place it within the convenient reach of young lawyers, or those who already have the more extended treatises of Daniell, Barbour, and others. In arranging his book, the author, after giving an outline of the functions of a court of equity, and the “ chan cery code,*' —as he styles the sections of the Illinois statutes bearing on equity,—indulges in a singular whim of arrangement, in injecting 100 pages of the record of the celebrated Aspden Will case, in the Pennsylvania, English, and New York courts, into the body of his work, leaving the reader to explore through it ad libitum for any instruction it may contain. This is for the purpose of showing, by an elabo rate and valuable illustration, what the reoord is; but most authors would have preferred pre serving the continuity of their treatise, and r£» ferring to this matter as an appendix. After this break, —which will give an impression of want of method to many,—the author proceeds with due method, devoting the succeeding 225 pages to the mode of procedure from the bill to the ap peal, including the pleadings, the issues, evi dence, interlocutory remedies, decrees, costs, reviews, eto. This ie the practice, properly speaking. The next 300 pages are given to eq uity jurisprudence, or the classified causes for the exorcise of chancery jurisdiction, in this State, including cases of fraud, trusts, mistake, divorce, specific performance, mortgages, liens, dower, partition, partnership, insane persons, infants, married women, discovery, and miscel laneous. These subjects are considered under the heads of remedial, executive, adjustive, pro tective, and auxiliary equity. About 50 pages of the more practical forms complete the work. We are satisfied, from our perusal of the work, that as an abstract of the chancery law of Ulin- nois, it is of great value to the profession. The blemishes consist mainly in the incorrect state ment of some points collateral to the main ob jects of the work. For instance, Mr. Hill says: Separate courts of chancery or equity exist in a few of the States of the Union. In some, as here, 1 and as In the United States Courts, the courts of law sit as courts of equity; In several equitable relief is ad ministered under the forms of the common law: while in many, these forms have been practically abolished, and the distinction between law and equity.either never existed, or has been to a great extent abrogated. We should say that the distinction between law and equity is inherent and universal, and ex actly what the words import, viz.: The dis tinction . between the adjudication of ques tions of right and the granting of reme dies which involve discretion. A Judge at law adjudges the legal effect of what the parties have done. ' A Judge in equity orders and de crees what they shall do. A judgment at law adjudges that defendant was guilty of the tres pass, Ac., because indebted to the plaintiff, Ac. A decree in equity orders, not that the parties werq.divorced by their own acta, or that the land has been divided, or that the partnership has been dissolved; but it divorces the parties, divides the laud, or dissolves the partnership, by its own order, and in a manner wherein some clement of discretion always inheres, or didin here at the time when equity first assumed ju risdiction. Again, Hr. Hill says (quoting no authority), p. 8: The cases of concurrent jurisdiction of a court of equity with the common law courts, are the reme dial correction of fraud, tho prevention of fraud by Injunction, accident, mistake, account, dower, inter pleader, the delivery up of documents and specific chattels, tho specific performance of agreements, etc. What Hr. Hill means is, that, while a court of law will decline to enforce a fraudulent con tract, —thus in one way relieving from it,—a court of equity will amend it, annul it, or enjoin from its operation,—thus relieving in another way from the same contract. Bat the two courts have never concurrent jurisdiction to grant the same kind of relief, and, without this, their jurisdiction is not concurrent. A student might infer from this particular statement, if ho read no farther, that a court of law would, con currently with a court of equity, amend a con tract or grant an injunction,—a tiling the author certainly does not mean. There are also instances of careless printing and punctuation, like tho following on page 9, in which three sentences are jumbled into one: Also, in case of omission by a Sheriff in a certificate of a sale of lands by him it should be corrected by mo tion, in'the court under whose authority he made the sale, the parly aggrieved boa hla remedy at law, and is not entitled to relief in equity. Theso, it is true, aro defects of stylo, and not of substance; but they involuntarily give rise to the suspicion in the mind of tho superficial reader, to whom only years of use can folly re veal the defects of substance in a law-work, that there may be carelessness in citation as well as in grammar, which may mar its value as a book of reference. . The law also is severely unpoetical in spirit, and rejects all descent into poetry as necessarily a blemish and frivolous. ■ If Blacks tone, while writing his Commentaries at his lodgings in Lon don, had stepped up-stairs, into tho humbler den in which Oliver Goldsmith was at tho same time writing tho Yicar of Wakefield, and had substituted a chapter of that work for one of his own, because of its beauty, he would not hare committed a more eccentric breach of taste than Mr. Hill does in beginning u Chapter II.” of a work on “ Chancery Practice ” with the follow ing rhapsodv, in which wo hardly which most to doubt: its poetical merit, its scientific value, or its legal bearing. He says: Everything in Nature that grows makes its own rec ord, —writes Its own history. Even the little dew drop, as It glistens in the morning sun, to every stu dent of Nature's works tells its own beautiful story. It seems to say. as we gaze upon its perfect little form, “To feed this leaf I came where now I stand and speak. In the radiance of your sun, from yonder lake, particle by particle, I arose to tho aky t where, with the gathering shades of evening, last night I came, charged with sustenance for thja leaf. This is my purpose here,—this is my earthly mission. . I soon shall leave this leaf, so moist and pleasant now, going atom by atom back to tho sky—my home.” The air we breathe THE CHICAGO DAILY TKIULUVE : TUESDAY, APRIL 29, 1873, is made up not only of oxygen and nitrogen, but also of tho watery vapor residing In It, which is impreg nated with carbonic-add gas. An eminent chemist observed that "’This small portion of carbonic add af fords an Important part of the food of plants, and tho watery vapor aids in keeping the surfaces of ani mals and plants in a moist and pliant state, while, in due season, it descends also In refreshing showers to stud the evening leaf with sparkling dow. By observ ing any little particle of orgonlo matter in its outward form, we (think we) learn the principles of its growth. Take a kernal of wheat, e.g. We call it wheat; wo plant it; we see it grow; it is wheat in the blade; wo see it mature and ripan; it is wheat in the. ear, and wheat in the full com in the car. Wo thus learn the principles of its existence. So we come with a full chancery record,— a case in chancery in all its stages of progress, from beginning to appearance, from appear ance to Issues, Ac. it is safe to say that, so far as the lawyers of Illinois are also poets and scientists, they will feel inclined to distrust tho poetry and science above conveyed; and.- so far as their education in these respects has oeen neglected, the quan-. turn which can be furnished in a chancery trea tise is too small to be very useful. We do not moan, by giving undue space to those eccentricities of taste in collateral matters, to underrate the debt which the profession in Illinois are under.to Mr. Hill for the pains, con densation, research, and accuracy displayed in the general character of the work. It has the merit of being an original work, not a rewriting, of any heretofore in existence; and, as tho number of lawyers in Illinois is hardly largo enough to give promise of sales proportion ate to the labor and cost of compiling it, it will bo gratefully received, especially by the .younger members of the profession. We trust, however, its ‘sale will by no means be limited to Illinois. Chancery-practice and equity-jurisprudence are essentially unchanged and tho same in all tho States, whether under the codes or tho old system. While, in common law practice, tho changes are radical, in equity they are superficial and insignificant. This wiU entitle Mr. Hill’s work to a liberal acceptance in other States, and this, we doubt not, it will re ceive. A TREATISE ON THE LAW OF JUDGMENTS, IN CLUDING ALL FINAL DETERMINATIONS OP THE RIGHTS OF PARTIES IN ACTIONS OR PRO CEEDINGS AT LAW OB IN EQUITY. By..A. O. Freeman, Counaelor-at-Law. MU pp. San Fran cisco : A. L. Bancroft A Co. 1873. Chicago: Cal lahan & Co., E, B. Myers A Co. This work covers a field of the law on which no American treatise had previously been pre pared, and henco collects in one volume on array of learning which has heretofore been scattered through many English and American* digests and treatises. It is edited in tho best stylo of legal editing. The arrangement is comprehensive and methodical, and tho mode of getting up the work is free from crudities and carelessness; The paragraphs are headed with brief catch-words, which conveniently indicate tho substance of the matter contained. Tho subject is a more diver sified one in its applications than might bo in ferred from its unity of title. Tho first seven chapters relate to tho mode of entering and vacating judgments, and their vari ous kinds; and then follow chapters on tho persona affected by them, on lispendens, merger, estoppels oy judgment, on impeaching judgments, on the judgment lien, on judgment as evidence, on their assignment, actions on sciro facias, pleading, satisfaction, reversed judgments, relief in equity from, for eign, in rem, etc., etc. Tho style is clear, brief, and precise, free from tbe author’s speculations, and confined strictly to the statement of the' law, if it has been uniformly decided, and, if not, then of the extent of the conflict of de cision. English as well as onr Federal and all the Btate reports, have been copiously drawn upon, and we can unhesitatingly commend the work oa one deserving a wide national sale, and a place in the library of every good lawyer.

Arrangements for tho Election of the Pontiff Curious Procan* New tlons* London {April 12) Correspondence of the Hew York World, lam informed that while It Is probable we shall hear of the death of the Pope in a short time, the news of that event will arrive simul taneously with the announcement that the now Pope has been elected. Everything has been ar ranged to this end under the special direction of Pins IX. himself. Yon understand ( why this is considered necessary. Should the Pope expire to-day or next week, and should the fact be known, the Governments of Itaiy, Germany, and perhaps Austria, would seek at once to interfere in the election of his successor. Kay, in the opinion of some people, the Italian Government would use force to prevent the assembling of the con clave immediately, and would seek to postpone the election of the new Pontiff until it had time to either sot up an onti-Popo by a pretended ple biscite of the inhabitants of Borne, or had thrown elements of discord among the College of Cardi nals. One of the schemes attributed to the Ital ian Government, which is believed by those in side the Vatican to bo capable of every villainy, is this: The College of Cardinals when full is composed of seventy members. There ore now only forty-four—or rather forty-six, two being reserved in peilo —and the Italian Government, it is said, if they get a chance, will declare that the election of a Pope by this small number* of Cardinals would be illegal and void. That is an absurd claim to set up, for there are plenty of prece dents against it, but it is believed in the Vatican that nothing is too absurd for the Italian Gov ernment if it can aid in their scheme of totally overthrowing the Papacy by preventing the elec tion of a Pope or of controlling the Cardinals so as tQ force them to choose a Pope who will make friends with the Government and consent to be their servant. Be all this as it may, however, I believe it has been determined to keep the death of the Pope a secret nntil the conclave has been hold and hia successor has been chosen. This can easily be done. The Vatican is such an immense place—a city, almost, by it self—and it is iso well guarded from intrusion from without and from unauthorized egress from within, that it will bo perfectly easy to pre vent any one outside its walls from the slightest knowledge of what is going on within. All the Cardinals—with a single exception—are now in the Vatican ; and a chapel has been prepared as the place for the holding of the conclave, which formerly assembled in the now confiscated Quiri nal. Even the contingency of an attempt on the part of the Italian Government to force their way into the Vatican in older to learn the fact of the Pope’s deatbuhaa been thought of and pro vided against. The Pope still retains in the Vatican some 400 soldiers, the picked men from his famous guard; they can and trill moke a stout resistance to any force which the Govern ment can send against the Vatican with instruc tions short of making a breach, with artillery: and, at the very least, the resistance they will offer to a forcible entrance will gain time enough to enable the conclave to do all its work. There could be no justification for an attempt on the part of the Government to Invade the Vatican; they have promised, over and over again, to hold that sacred to the Pope; and it is improbable, though not impossible, that they would attempt an act of violence which would stir all Catholic Europe, and America to madness against them. . Some private dispatches from the Vatican ar rived here last night. Necessarily, they came in cipher. .1 believe they wore ostensibly sent by a Danker in Borne to bin correspondent in Lon don, and referred, apparently, only to money matters. But they were really messages from those nearest the Pope to their friends here and in Dublin. lam able to say that one fact was stated with great clearness in these messages. The condition of the Pope had grown very seri ous ; he was far more dangerously ill than had been thus far supposed. He was suffering from a very severe attack of rheumatic fever; his legs were ulcerated, and gave Mm great pain; for the last two nights he had been unable to sleep without'the ‘aid-of powerful opiates. He was bearing his Bufferings, which at times were ex tremely acute, with great patience and with won derful cheerfulness. But on the 13th of next month, if he lives until then, he will be 82 years old, and a man of that age cannot long endure these pains. Should he die. I have no doubt that the plan upon which he has decided for the election of hia successor will be carried out to the letter; we shall hear simultaneously of the death of the Pope and the election of the Pope. The cry will be, “ The Pope is dead! Long live the Pope!” .But then will probably fol low scenes in Borne that have not yet been Witnessed there, and unless the Government is stronger than it seems to be .the red mob may succeed in wreaking their vengeance in a terri ble manner. At all events, Borne for the next lew weeks promises to be once more the most interesting spot on earth. In addition to the bronchitic affection under which the Pope has suffered for some time and his present attack of rheumatic fever, he has suffered for many years from a varicose ulcer in the iegj the temporary ; closing up of which is followed by epileptoid seizures of a very exhausting kind, while its re-, opening, whether spontaneous or artificial, procures exemption from these seizures. This safety-valve, however, is said to have at last fail ed him/ the cerebral congestia caused by the par oxysms of coughing sufficing of itself to induce an epileptoid attack in spite of the , ulcer’s re maining open. What medical adxice His' Holi ness has called in besides that of hia veteran physician and confidant, Dr. Vialo Prela, I haxo not ascertained. Dr. Pantaleoni, the lead ingJtalian practitioner in Borne, is an old ene my of the Vatican, and, indeed, owes his pres ence in the Eternal' City to that of Hing Victor Emmanuel. THE MODOCS. Treachery Anticipated Before the IHurdcr of Canby and Thomas* .The Marysville (Cal.) Herald of April 17 gives this as one of the results of an interview with E. Steolo, of Yreka : Steel’s long experi ence with the savages and tho narrow escape of himself and Atwell (Bill Dadd),' convinced him that the next party visiting the lava-beds would be massacred. He therefore informed Gen. Canby and tho Peace Commissioners of the situa tion, and urged them to beware of treachery, and under no circumstances to place themselves in the power of the Indiana, but if anymore “ talks ” were to be had that they be held atthe. army headquarters. Judge Boseborongh* - pro mised to, and did, follow this advice, os did also Gen. Canby and the Commissioners until the arrival of Dr. Thomas. Steele met Dr. Thomas upon his arrival at Yreka, and earnestly begged him not to hold any parley with the savages on. ground of their selection, but Dr. Thomas, in the earnestness of his desire to effect a peaceful solution of the - question, and firm in tlio theory that tho Indians would not be insensible to his kindly intentions, made tho fatal mistake of trusting to their integrity. Gen. - Canby accompanied them from a sense of official duty, and thero is little doubt but that tho brave old soldier walked into the lava-heds with' the consciousness that thero was little hope of his returning alive. In bis last interview with Steele, when that gentleman, upon taking leave of him, begged-that he would not expose his life to tho treachery of the Indians, Gen. Canby replied; “ I believe you are right. Mr. Steele, and I shall regard your advice:” and then, with a pleasant smile, ho added, “ but. it would not look very well for tho General in command to be afraid to go where tho Peace Commissioners would venture.” Letter from Dr, Thomas* Son* The following letter is from the son of Rev. E. Thomas, lately killed by the Modocs; San Francisco, April 14,1873. Hon, A, A. Sargent, United Staten Senator : Dear Sib : It suddenly occurs to mo to write you a few words. It was undoubtedly through you that father was appointed upon the Commis sion to tho Modocs, and it may bo that, in spite of your judgment to tho contrary, your feelings may condemn your agency in Hie matter. Do not reproach yourself; neither for our sakea let tho policy of the nation toward the Indians be. changed in its spirit,—in obedience to the frenzy of the hour. Of course they must be punished and overcome, and made to feel our power. But read the Sacramento Record on the subject of the “Modoc Assassination” of tho 11th of April, which I have just read. If tho severest punishment be visited upon the hostile Indians, let peace and justice and security bo still sought for others. Father’s heart was in the cause in which he gave his life, and the cause is worthy and must be persevered in. We suffer for the ill-deeds of our own race, and must still suffer, perhaps. Bub we owe it to ourselves and to the Indians to persevere. “I hope you are 'with mo still in this. I hope Gen. Grant is. The Indians must know our power, and that our mercy is not cowardice—they must know our word is tine. I speak for myself, and I hope I may be entitled to some consideration. I am not asking for false mercy, or that the frontiersman he exposed to any avoidable risk of life and property. The Indians are what they are, I believe, be cause the whites with whom they are in con tact have been what they have been. We are to blame; not the poor Modocs; but the rapacious, lawless, perfidious whites are guilty of his blood. We blame no one for his death. Now that the first shock has passed away, we find more to rejoice in than to mourn over. He was ready—always ready. His heart was only love. How any man or beast could meet the kind smile of that face, and do the old man harm, I cannot understand. In the fullness of his power, in the ripeness of his manhood, when he was living every day so. near the heavenly world, and was always in near com munion with the better land, God took him higher at once, painless. To few men, compara tively, is it given to dio like a martyr, and for * your agency in thus securing the past of a glorious life in the service of his Church and his fellow-men, and in securing the future to him and us, I thank you. We will pluck up oar hearts, and follow ou till God grants us the blessing of death. This flary will soon pass over. Without say- • ing anything now, lot the Government adhere to* its grand purpose to be just and true to these children of the land. Don’t let the precious blood of the dead be only the signal for an in sane crusade for vengeance. Let it not bo for war alone. They died who lived for peace. To bo sore peace will come through war, but not by extermination. Mother bears it well; so do the children. Wo are happy because he is happy beyond the chanco of suffering. And he did suffer here, and suffering made him perfect. He was already be yond the reach of malice to auger or provoke him, but not, of course, to wound his soul. And now his cup is full of joy. Yourf truly, E. C. Thomas. Volcanic Eruptions in Iceland* A great eruption of the Skaptar Yokul, a vol cano in Iceland, took place on the 9th of Jan uary. It lasted over four days, and the mag nificent sight it presented was visible from most parts of the country. The Yokula, or enormous ico-mountains, ore among the greatest elevations in Iceland. The most extensive of these is the Klofa Yokul, in the east; it lies behind the heights which line tho southeast coast, and forms, with little or no interruption, a vast chain of ice and snow mountains, covering a surface of perhaps 3,000 square miles. The west quarter contains, among other lofty heights, the Snafel Yokul, 4,580 feet high. In tho north the mountains are not very high; but , in the east the Oroofa Yokul, 6,280 feet in eleva tion, is tho most lofty of which any accurate measurement has been obtained. The celebrated volcano Hecla is in the southwest quarter, and about thirty miles inland. It is more remarka ble for the frequency and violence of its erup tions than for its elevation, which is only about 5,2Q0 feet. Besides more than thirty volcanic mountains, there exists an immense num ber of small cones and craters, from, which streams of melted substances: have been poured forth over the sur rounding regions. Nine volcanoes wore active daring tho last century, four in tho North and the rest lying nearly in a direct line along the South Coast. Twenty-three eruptions of Hecla are recorded since the occupation of the Island by Europeans. The first of these occurred in 1004. The most extensive and devastating erap tion ever experienced on the island happened in 1783; it proceeded from the Skaptar Yokul, a volcano (or rather volcanic tract having several cones]) near the centre of tho country. This eruption did not entirely cease for about two years. It destroyed no fewer than twenty vil lages and 9,000 human beings, or more than one filth part of the then population of the island. Oat in tbe Cold* Wehavoheen wasting oar commiseration on the people of Minnesota. According to one of their own newspapers, it is rather pleasant than otherwise to freeze to death. It says: “ Tno bitter cold does not chill and shake a person, as in damper climates.. It stealthily creeps within all defenses, and nips at the bone without warn ing. Biding along with busy thoughts, a quiet. Measurable drowsiness takes possession of the >ody and mind, the fences grow indistinct, the thoughts wander, weird fancies come trooping about with fantastic forms, the memory fails, and, in a confused dream of wife and home, the soul steps out into oblivion without a pang of regret."
