Austin Bidwoll, tho Bank of England forger, who fled to Cuba, reached London yesterday, and baa boon lookod up at Nowgato. 'Hioro is a slimmer attendance than usual at tbn mooting of tho Now England Woman-Suf frage Association, which is now holding Us fourth annual session in Boston. A committee has boon appointed from tho Northern Presbyterian General Assembly to con fer with a committee from tho Boformod Church, concerning a union of tho two Churches. . A tornado swept through Neosho County, Kansas, last Thursday. • -Its track was half a mile wide aud six miles long. It wrought a ter rible destruction of lifo and property. Six per sons woro killed outright, aud of twonty-ono who woro wounded six moro aro expected todio. Tho nogroos of Now Orleans hold a mass mooting last Monday ovoning. They declared choir belief in tho legality of tho Kollogg Gov ernment,' and determined to help put him right before Congress and tho country by appointing committees in ovory .parish to collect evidence tu. publication, and' liy . sending some of thoir ablest speakers to canvass the North. Congressman Grebe; of Illinois, publishes bis correspondence with Treasurer Spinner, return ing his “backpay" to tho Treasury. Ho re ceived tho rliook for tho back pay on tho 21th of Jilnrch, and roturnod'it to tho Treasury ou tho 81st of tho; same month. Mr. Crobs voted against tbo salary-grab-at ovory stago, and lu entitled to a clean bill of health ou that score. Tho Agricultural Congress which moots to day at-Indianapolis-ia expected to solicit Fed eral and State aid -for several magnificent schemes. Among them is tho project for a railroad from Leavenworth through Missouri, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, and South Caro lina, to Port Boyal. Port lloyal is to bo made a great commercial centre. A secret mooting of the Itailroad and Ware house Commissioners was hold at Springfield yesterday. Gov. Bovoridgo, with tho Attornoy- Gonoral and Gram-Inspector Harper mot with them, and it is believed that the subject dis cussed was the inspection of grain in this city, which is so objectionable to shippers along tho canal. Tho Hon. Alexander Mitchell, member of Con gress from tho Milwaukee District, outborizos tbo iVetcs of that oity to say that ho never drow his •* back pay," but that it was, at hils request, covered into tho Treasury immediately after ho became entitled to receive it. Mr. Mitchell fur ther says that his first impulse was t6 draw it and to bestow it on tho Young Men’s Associa tion ; but bio second thought was, that tboy bad no bettor right to it than lie hod; and so ho caused it to bo promptly returned to' tho Treas ury, whoro it belonged. Tho Saloon-Koopors’ Union unanimously ogroed, at their mooting last night, at which 200 tucmbors wore present, to abandon thoir policy of a defiant violation of tho Sunday ordinance. All tho speakers, among whom wore Mr. Hosing and Qon. Liob, urgod that tho courao of tho saloon-keepers, in breaking tho law laub Sunday, was a eoriouH mistake, and that roliof from tho obnoxious ordinance must bo sought only by logitimato moans. A committee has boon ap pointed to prevail upon tho Common Council to allow saloons to bo opened after 1 o’clock on Sunday. Derby Day lias always been honored by an ad journment of Parliament, hut of lalo years there has been a growing feeling against tills public recognition of “ the national sport." Thomas Hughes opposed tho adjournment last year in a very strong speech, and made another protest yesterday against tho proposal to adjourn over Juno 5, which is Derby Day this your, 110 de clared that tho conduct of Parliament hi tho matter hod boon a public humiliation, and was in tho highest degree detrimental to publlo mor als. Aftor hearing hla speech, Parliament ad journed as usual. Thfers was olways a violent Protectionist, and yrhon bo came into powor made haste to undo *U that Napoleon had done to establish liberal commercial relatione with England by tho Treaty of 1860. Now that Thiora la clown, nnd tho Dona partlat AfnoMnbon la in Ida Boat, it la announced that tho Froo Trado policy will bo roaurood by tho Government. Thla la moro rumor, But galna aomo plaualblllty from tho political blaa of MaoMahon, who would not bo unllholy to look kindly on tho policy which ho knowu Napoloou ao atrongly favored. A correspondent writes us that Mr. John Col ton, tho well-known “modlclno-mau" of Gales burg and vicinity, is one of tbo ootlvo supporters of Craig in tho present Judicial contest In tho Fifth District. Mr. Colton’s father is, and has boon for a long Umo, ono of tbo Directors and largest stockholders in tbo 0., B. &Q. 11.11. It is perfectly proper for Mr. Colton to support Craig if ho chooses, but tbo public will give him credit at least for knowing on which side hla broad is buttered. Tho Inference Is .pretty strong that tho railroad roou consider tholr interests safer in tho hands of Oralg than In those of Lawrouco. Mr. Jasper Packard, member of Congress from Indiana, has boon requested by a couuty convention of bis constituents to resign on ac count of tho back-pay business, and ho has written a letter giving his reasons for not doing so. Ho claims that his backpay is no burden > upon bis constituents, because it is borne by tho wholo people of tho country; that ho has esti mated that tho share of it taken from tho peo ple of his district is sl2, ahd that sum ho pro poses to deposit for tho benefit of tbo 110,000 inhabitants of that Congressional District. It is likely that Mr. Packard’s flippancy will have tho offoot of intensifying tho popular indigna tion at his retaining tho money. Tho Geneva Lnko (Wls.) Herald publishes a half-column editorial denying that President Grant was drunk on tho occasion of his recent visit to that romantic and seductive neighbor hood. Wo had not upticod that any such charge had boon made publicly, although wo had hoard somo gossip of that kind on tho streets. Tho Jlci'ald says that the President drank nothing stronger than champagne at Gouova Lake, and only ono glass—a very small ono*-of that. At tho same timo tho Herald thinks that “ tho hon ored Executive of this free nation ought to bo oxtromoly guarded iuhia example before millions of young men who are Influenced by such an act.” Tho Chicago produce markets were generally steady yesterday, and moderately ootivo, except provisions. Moss pork was dull, and 10@15o per brl lower, closing at WG.20@1G.25 cash, and 5i10.50@1C.55 seller July.

On Satur day ovoning last there was In store in this city 420,073 bu wheat, 4,G49,G09 hu com, 1,348,014 bu oats, 240,603 bu ryo, and 74,777 bu barley.- Hogs woro in good demand and without material ob'ango in values, closing steady at $4.G0@8.00 for poor to choice. Tho cattle trade was dull, with prices in buyer’s favor. Sales at $3.D0@0.12%. • . Tho Indian Bureau has got into another snarl relative to the feeding of the Apache Indians in Arizona, which is vorydikoly to produce a now source of trouble, in addition to the thousand and one other troubles which are constantly em barrassing the Bureau, Last summer, Cochise and hie band wore induced to go upon a rosorvo .tion, under promise that they should bo provided for if they behaved themselves, At tho same time, a contract was made to furnish thorn with beef, and tho contractor has commenced filling the contract, but Congress did not appropriate enough for the subsistence of thoso Indiana. Meanwhile, Gon. Crook has placed 1,400 more on tho reservation, for whom thoro is no provi sion at all. Tho Subsistence Department of the ormy refuses to famish supplies, because it is contrary to regulations, and, as tho Indian Oflico has no money with which to reimburse the Sub sistence Department, no arrangement can bo made. Tho contractor who has boon furnishing hoof threatens to stop unless ho is paid, and, if ho stops, tho Indians must either starve or be gin depredations again. They cannot support themselves on the reservation, because they havo uot boon supplied with either seed or tools. How long will It bo before an Indian is treated like a white man? All of .this trouble might have boon avoided if, instead of taxing industri ous people to an enormous expense that Indians may bo supported without work, tho policy had boon adopted to sot them to work and make thorn earn tbolr living as white men do. What reason is there why they should bo supported in idleness, and that a premium should bo offered thorn uot to work? A lazy white man has to .work or starve. Lot a lazy Indian have tho same choice, is the remedy for a largo share.of tho Indian troubles, especially for this now trouble which has just orison. To borrow tho apt phrase of theAWiVm, “ agriculture or death" should bo tho Indexible rule of tho Gov ernment in its dealings with the Indians. THE FARMERS AND THE SUPREME COURT. Persistent efforts aro made to mislead tho pooplo in regard to tho real attlludo of tho Su premo Court of this Stato in respect to tho im portant question now pending between tho farmers uud tho railroads, on tho subject of ratos of transportation and unjust discrimina tions between individuals and between different localities. It is surely of groat interest to tbo people to understand correctly thoir true rela tions to tho Court on this vital question, for they will Anally loaru that if they over obtain that roliof which they,ought to havo they will got it at tho hands of tho Courts instead of tho Legislative Department of tho Government, whether Stato or National. Wo propose n brief review of the decisions of our own Supremo Court on this subject. Wo will first call attention to the cose of tho Peoria A Rook Island Railroad Company v. tho Coal Valloy Mining Company, rocontly decided. Tho question presented in this case was, whether tho Railroad Company could, by contract, bind itself to transport coal over its road for a particular .company, to tbo exclusion of indi viduals. Mr. Justice Walker, in delivering tho .Tim UHLCAUO DAILY TRIBUNE; WEDNESDAY, MAY 28, 1873, opinion of all tho Judges, says t “ Havo not tho public suoh an iutoroai In tho uso and conlinuod operation of tho railroads of tho State as should forbid tho Court from enjoining tho freights and • property of individuals from being transported because tho Company has entered Into an engagement to pay a stipulated sum for track sorvlco or toll for tho right to run over another road and carry passengers nud freights?” . In answering this question, Justice Walker con tinues : ’ Wbou Ihc-Ho groat ami useful bodies wore created, Iboro wero two • cousldcndlmm (hat Induced tbeir organization, Ono was, mid It was tho highest and most Important, tho accommodation of tho public and tho promotion of their Interests, Tho other was tho promotion of tho interest of tho Individual stock* holders in such companies. Tho primary object of tho people of tho Stale over has boon, in creating railroads, to afford facilities for trado and commerce by speedy convenient, and cheap travel and transportation of merchandise, tho products and minerals of tho coun try, to tho best markets, thus supplying every section with tbo products of other sections. , . , Audit was tho same considerations that have Induced almost every county, city, town, village, and a great number of townships, to .Incur debts, which In tho aggregate, amount to a vast aum, to subscribe for stock in rail roads or make donations to such bodies, and on which, those corporations are paying an Immense sum ini taxes to discharge (ho Interest on those debts. And for all this vast sum thus contributed It la bollovod that elites, counties, towns, villages, and townships have nothing of value to show, unless It bo In rare Instances. No ono can believe that tho pooplo havoexpended those vast sums, burdened themselves, in many in stances, to tho point of ruin, and entailed upon thom- Bclvoa and posterity debts nnd buredns that must bo onerous, If not destructive, for tbo bcnoQt of private stockholders of tbcoo companies. No ono can enter tain such an opinion. All must comprehend tbo fact, that It was done mainly to promote tbo public good and to advance our material interests. Can any ono suppose that It was merely to enrich and aggrandize tho stockholders and tho ofllcors of those companies, that tho pooplo, through tholr repre sentatives In the O on oral Assembly, have granted such liberal charters, authorizing them to uso tho highest prerogative of sovereignly, eminent domain, to deprive tho citizen of his property for tho uso and benefit of these bodies, thus relieving them of tbo, necessity of being compelled to purchase nnd pay exorbitant prices for tbolr right of way, depot grounds, and material for tbo construction of these roads 7 On UlO contrary, all know that such liberality nndtho grant of such powers wero conferred to advance public Interest, as tho first and great object. Dut to' accomplish this groat purpose it was found necessary to enlist private enterprise nnd capital. And to call It forth fop tho accomplishment of , tho end, rights, privileges, and Immunities had to bo conferred hud secured to those who would embark In tbo con-, strucliou and operation of these roads, lienee, in .tholr charters the rights and duties of tbo companies are either expressed or implied. When created bodies corporate they become invested with tho right to con struct and use their roads, to transport both persons and property over their linos, and to receive compen sation for tbo same. And when those bodies accept tbolr charters, it is with tho Implied understanding that thoy will fairly perform tho duties of public com mon carriers of both persons and property, and at tho same time a correlative duty is imposed, that they shall receive and carry persona and freight on tbolr linos. And this is a duty thoy cannot escape by refu sal, by contract, or agreement with other persons or companies, that they will disregard and refuse to per form thorn. Those aro duties thoy owe tho public, and it was in consideration that they would bo performed that their charters were granted. Thoy, then, have no power to disable themselves from performing these charter obligations, ami any effort lo do so by contract Is void. Wo are not proparod to hold that the Legisla ture could exonerate such bodies from tho perform ance of their duties. Whilst railroads must be protected lu all of tbclr rights with tbo same exactness as Individuals arc, they must at tlio boiuo time be held to a rigid performance ‘o/all their Unties to the public, fior trill they be per- Viittcd, by contract or othertcise, to avoid their perform ance. So tho Court decided that a railroad company must provide shipping facilities for all aliko, and would not bo allowed to outer into any con tract tho effect of which would bo to abrldgo tho rights of any of tho pooplo in that rospoot, and in this opinion all the Judges concurred. Wo find thiii case published lu a recent num-. her of tho American Law Register, one of tho loading law journals of tho country, to which is added a note by Chief Justice Bodflold, of Ver mont, an ablo and active friend of tho pooplo on this question. Judge Bcdflold says; “Wo can not hut admire tho vein of old-f ashionod honesty which sooms to characterize tho dealings of tho Illinois Supremo Court with many of tho ques tions affecting public duty.” And after com menting upon tho prevailing inclination among public mon to subsidize tho public interest to thoir private gain, tho distinguished Judgo con tinues s Railways naturally expect the same liberty to put off public ilutioa which other public servants allow* them selves. Wo are templed to oak tho profusion and tho publlo how long they can fairly expect tho courts t6 stand up against this desolating tide of moral debase ment 7 If it can bo done long without somo revulsion and reformation among tho massca of our people, It will bo more than the lessons of history allow us fairly to expect. And it seems to ut the people of Illinois have great reason to felicitate themselves fn being abUto sustain (heir judiciary at so high a jmnt of integrity audjinn lues in dealing with so many 0/ these exciting questions of publio interest and public duty, and especially in regard to railway transportation. These cases aro already considerably numerous in that Court, and all ruled in/avor of public duty, . Tills is tho judgment of ono of tho moat emi nent jurists of tho country, in rospoct to tho character of tho action of our Supreme Court concerning thoso great public questions. Judge Bo'dfiold does not speak from tho standpoint of amoro technical lawyer, but bo speaks aa a groat jurist, fully imbued with the sentiment of pro gress and reform, which tho prevailing question of tho day inspires in tho minds* of all right thinking men. - Judgo Bodfiold, in tho samo article, remarks 1 “It is obvious thoso questions will, sooner or later, havo to bo mel by tbo courts iu every part of tbo country, and wo fear by tbo Stato courts, sinco tboro is little hope of any remedy at tbo hands of Congress Iu tho way of regulating iutor-Stato commerce. Tho railways havo too groat inlluenco in tho Con gressional Districts, and in tbo lobby to moko any such reform hopeful against tho wishes of tho companies." And after commenting upon thoso corrupting influences, tho .writer says further: “But so long as ibis mad conflict is kept up, under tho lead of tho hosost raou in tho country—tho lob byists—thor'o will bo small hope of any effective roliof. Tho courts will bo loft to do tho boat they cau under a system of law framed and ma tured under a totally different state of things before railways existed. And owing t*i its won derful adaptability to all circumstances, no doubt much may bo done by a wise and prudent admin istration of tho common law.” No higher duty devolves upou tho people to day than to hold up the hands of our Supreme Court, who havo manfully fought tho battles of our people against monopoly In ovory form. Tho Court has really boon in advance of tho leg islation of tho State upon all those questions of popular reform. And yot, for tho promotion of base ends, and to subserve purely selfish inter ests, demagogues, and thoso who aro worse than demagogues, in violation of ovory sentiment of right, havo, in tho most persistent manner, represented tho Court as favoring monopolies, when tho most determined ouoniy of all kinds of xnopppolloa has always boon tho very Court which has boon so vilely traduced. Butin spile of all this injustice and clamor, tho Court has quietly and jnost'effectually iuter- poßod Its voice and authority In,favor of tho right and against tho wrong, * At a lato mooting in Now York, at tho house of Mr. David Dtulloy Field, of a number of gentle* mou interested hi tho Universal Peace tnovo-l mont, a report was read by tho llov. James B. Milos, who has recently returned from Europe,' and who expressed tho belief that tho Genova Arbitration had Inaugurated a now ora In tho settlement of international differences. Mr. Milos said that ho was present in tho British Parliament during tho warmest discussions of tho Treaty of Washington, nnd that oven those opposed to tho Government pre faced all their attacks on ‘ tho treaty by the statement that thoy wore in favor of arbitration. Mr. Miles’report suggest ed tho Idea that it was now a good timo to call an International Peace Congress, and it was de termined to fix tho 23d day of September next for such a mooting, to which publicists from different nations aro to bo invited. A commit tee, consisting of David Dudley Field, Tboodoro D. Woolsoy, LL. D., Emory Washburn, William Beach Lawrence, and James B. Miles, was ap pointed to issue invitations nnd to mako arrange ments for tlio Congress. Mr. Field will doubt less be useful In showing tbo Committee how to preserve peace by iuJunction. NOTES AND OPINION.

In having voted for similar laws, such distinguished icntlomou as Daniel Webster, Henry Olay, Stephen A. Douglas, Edward D. Baker, and many others who have adorned tho pages of our country’s history. Wo do not hesitate to say that wo regard the present law os a groat improvement on tho old law. —Tho Bt.

I have read tho law hooka, and I know that never before, rluco reports began, has a court declared itself an ass.” We only quote tho coun selor's oucrgcllo expressions, without Indorsing hla conclusions. Wo don’t wish to bo held responsible for tho assertion that tho Into Court of Impeachment made an ass of Itself, Thot la a conclusion of law, and thla court is not a court of law. —Tho Pittsburgh Commercial, unliko our Illinois Slate Journal , is independent of tho favors of Congress, and tbo proprietor of the Commercial, who is also Stato Treasurer, if looking for votes this year, when, if not ro cloctod, ho must settle up.

About tho closo of clearing house hours the loan rate foil to flat for carry ing, indicating a very largo short interest.
