SHANAHAN, WEST & MANNING. Something New In Bankruptcy for In nocent Attorneys to Learn. How Mr. Manning, an Attorney, Managed to Muddle the Affairs of Shanahan & West, and His Own. He Compromises Their Afci'j, Gets Them Into Bankruptcy, and Himself Along. Judge Blodgett Tolls Some Interesting Facts as to Commercial Paper and , Preferential Payments. Tho trial of Shanahan, West «fe Manning, for bankruptcy, is one of tho most important to tho general public, os regards tho issues raised, that has taken place in Ohicago since tho fire. Shanahan <fc' West, * trading above their means, bnt still doing a fairly largo business, suspend ed tlio payment of their commercial paper, and wore adjudged bankrupt, under circumstances which aro familiar to most readers. Before tho Court had Investigated a tltho of tho matters charged, a compromise was effected, by which proceedings wore to have boon abandoned. Mr. Manning, a young attorney of this oily, Who bos practised since tho fire, and was for merly in tho dry goods business, an Intimate friend of West, was tho gentleman who arranged this compromise. As compensation for doing so, ho was to receive a portion of tho moneys saved by tho management,—for oxamplo, in con sideration of his making himself and his prop erty responsible to tho creditors for tho payment of seventy cents on tho dollar of tho firm’s in debtedness, and obtaining leave for tho lattor to recommence business, ho was to lake charge of tho daily receipts, and out of them pay tho compromise notes, nod from whatever remained keep his propor tion of tho SO cduts saved—tho difference be tween tho 70 cents paid and tho dollar duo. In accordance with this arrangement, ho did givo notes to several of tho creditors on tho basis of 70 cents on tho dollarj Shanahan & West recom menced business; and Manning took the pro ceeds every night, crediting them to his own ac count. Ho paid only 10 per cent of the first installment of 20 per cent duo upon the notes, however, thus allowing the arrangement made to fail, and tho accounts showed that ho appropriated $2,000 in cash and SBOO la goods to his own use. Those proceedings wore thou brought by Tenney, Flower & Aborcrombio, Instructed by creditors who hold one of said notes, for tho bankruptcy of said firm, including Manning as a partner. Therefore, one of tho points at issue was, whether the attorney who settled tho first bank ruptcy had, by receiving tho moneys of the firm, and personally guaranteeing tho payment of tho debts, rendered the firm liable to bankruptcy for preferential payments, and himself liable as a partner to proceedings in bankruptcy brought against tho firm and himself on tho suspension of notes— ‘‘ commercial paper,”—to whiouho was a party in common with tho others. Although the Tenneys—experienced and sharp in tho ways of bankruptcy —from tho first insisted that tho law on tho point was well settled, yet tho atten tion thoy showed to every detail of tho fight, the well-known ability of Mr. Black, tho counsel opposed to their counsol (Mr. Bentley, one of the ablest bankruptcy counsel of tho West) and tho multiplicity or points which ho contrived to raise, demonstrated tho importance of this legal struggle, respecting which tho trumpet-toned ' Times has had so little to say. The above statement of tho cose is a fair pre sentation of the foots elicited by tho evidence on which the counsel relied, and wo do not, there fore, need to recall the speeches of counsel, but proceed at once to tho charge of tho Court to tho )n S s Honor, after noticing the evidence ad duced, and recounting the history of tho ontiro proceedings in bankruptcy, proceeded to consid er tho nets charged in tho present proceeding; first, the suspension of commercial paper; sec ond, tho payment of moneys to Manning with intont to givo a preference, and also with intent to binder and delay tho creditors. In order to establish the suspension of com mercial paper, it must bo ohown that respond ents were merchants, etc., and that paper given by them as merchants bad not boon paid for a Eoriod of 14 days after falling duo. It had not con denied that tbo firm wore merchants, but counsel for respondents insisted as a matter of law that tho paper in question was not com mercial paper, m that thoro was collateral se curity given therefor, whilst admitting that it was given in duo coureo of business by. respond ents ns merchants. It was proved that tbo notes wore not paid at maturity, nor fourteen days thereafter. The suspension of payment on commercial pa per by a merchant is an act of bankruptcy. The Court did not think that the fact that a creditor holds security upon paper given by a merchant destroys its character as commercial paper. The creditor still has the right to the personal re sponsibility of tho debtor. Ho may prove his claim in bankruptcy; may surrender his security, and roly solely on ids dividend; or exhaust bis security and take his dividend on tho balance of tho debt. The Court, therefore, charged the ■Jury that tho paper was commercial paper, given In duo course of business of the firm, notwith standing it was secured. It was claimed by tho respondents that they should not bo adjudged bankrupt for the non payment of their paper at maturity or 14 days thereafter, because, they claim ana insist, they had on understanding at tho time the paper was given that it might not bo paid at maturity, and that further time should bo given if the pro ceeds of sales did not enable them to moot tho liability. It was a well settled principle that when parties attempt to reduce a contract to writing, the written contract furnishes the sole evidence of tho agreement, and that a contract cannot rest partly in writing and partly in parole. Tho notes and composition deed, which are tho only evidence of tho agreement between respondents and their creditors, contain no provision for such an extension of time, and tho jury mast divest themselves of all Idea of such agreement. It was also contended that after tho notes woro made, and at or about the time they ma tured, respondents mode a valid agreement for au extension of time. Tho law gives a commer cial debtor, who has foiled to moot his paper, fourteen days In which to pay or retire it, and if within that time ho does either, or succeeds in extending it, no act of bankruptcy is consum mated. But it is not enough that ho should re tire part of tho paper, leaving a balance unpaid; ho will not thus escape tho consequence of his suspension, as regards such balance. Tho Jury would decide on the evidence before them as a matter of fact, whether tho creditors had con sented to such extension of timo. if a creditor, on a proposition from his debtor, by his conduct loads him to boliovo that tho proposition will bo accoptod, so as to throw him off his guard, tho Court was not prepared to say that such creditor could tako advantage of tho failure to pay within fourteen days, or until a reasonable time had expired after negotia tions closed. Tho evidence wont to show that a proposition for extension had been made, and it was for the jury to ilud whether it had been ac cepted or not. Tho respondents relied on the fact that they had mailed a letter, with note indorsed, which the creditor was, by their desire, to acknowl edge by returning tho old uoto, ou which one half had boon paid. If tho uoto had boon received and retained, and a draft drawn and paid, it would have boon an acceptance. Tho presumption is that matter sent by duo course of mail roaches its destination ; but it does not follow, because uoto and proposal come to hand, that the pro posal was accoptod. Tho jury would form tnolr own conclusions ns to whether tho proposal was accoptod or not. As to tho payments to Manning, a creditor, with intent to prefer, and also with intent to hinder and delay creditors, tho Court did not consume much time in dioussing tho many points raised as to Manning's being in law a member of the firm. In law tho Arm consisted of Shana han, West, and Manning. The fact that Man ning was a guarantor fixed his liability on tho paper, and identiAod him with all proceedings in bankruptcy in connection with that paper. Tho Court iiad already settled tills principle. lu a oaso iu which Mr. Tenney, now iresout, had boon engaged, and it was uimooeu )&ry to report (ho language of Uio ruling. The proof tended to show that tho now firm of Shan ahan, West & Manning became indebted to Manning for his Borvloos in obtaining tho com- E remise of November, 1872, and that ho has oon paid a largo amount on account of euoh in debtedness. To sustain tho charge of nrof orontlal parraontg, tho Jury must ho satisfied that it lias boon proved, that Manning was a creditor, that a payment is alleged has boon made to him, that the firm was Insolvent at tho timo of such payment, and that, in making euoh payment, it was their intention to give him a preference. When tho natural ana legal consequences of an act aro to givo a Preference, tho law will prosumo a proforonoo to avo boon intended. ' As to insolvouoy, tho law requires a merchant to know tho stalo of hie pecuniary affairs, and tho question for tho Jury to determine was, whether tho firm did so in this Instance. Id con clusion, tho Court requested tho jury to stalo tho specific charges on which they round, and tho Jury retired, with permission to seal their verdict and return It into oourt this morning. THE HOPE OF EBIN. A Itfootingr of IrlsUmon Proclaims It to Bo Total Abstinence—An effort lUado to Organize a Ooramon-Sonso Tom* pornneo Society—lrishmen Cannot Aid tho Gormans In Their Lavor-Uecr War.. A mooting of Irish citizens favoring tho cause of temperance in tho city was hold yesterday af ternoon at Wahl's Hall, comer, of Adams and Halatod streets, tho object being tho formation of a now temperance society, known as " Erin’s Hope.” Tho mooting was called to ordor by tho President, Mr. Frank Kelly, Mr. Patrick McGroo vy acting os Secretary. Mr. John Sullivan explained the object of tho mooting in a few words. Ho said tho inten tion was to form o temperance organization, which should possess nono of tho routine of other societies, without tho pageantry of regalia, parades, and the like; one which would com mend itself to tho workingmen by Its simplicity, tho only plodgo required being abstinence from Intoxicating liquor of nU kinds, including lager boor, and a general activity in tho promo tion of temperance among Irishmen. The association woo likewise to combine tho advantages of mutual lifo-insuranco. Tho en trance fee was sl. Upon tho death of a member a levy of $1 per capita was to ho mado, and handed over to the legal heirs of tho docascd. Mr. E. Rouayno said there was no question so intensely Interesting to tho Irish race os that of temperance. When no looked round tho city and saw the thousands of bard-working Irishmen who, by honest industry, had accumulated a little money, and wore roaring their young children in tho fear of tho Lord, no was satisfied that that thoy could not sympathize with any movement which gave tho rum-seller personal liberty to deal out doath and destruction on tho Sabbath day. Any blow aimed at the sanctity of tho Sabbath was a blow at tho religion of tho Irish. Tho Irish would never bo found frater nizing with iho Gormans in such an unholy war fare. Mr. J. D. O’Connor assailed boor from a sani tary standpoint, and claimed that there was more nourishment in a loaf of broad than in a hogs head of tho host Bavarian beer. Tho liquor dealers hod gone mad in tho extravagance of their demands, and now wanted to scatter disease and death bn tho Sabbath day. The re mainder of bis remarks wore similar to those of tho preceding speaker. Mr. L. D. Britton bado Ids Irish follow-citi zens godspeed in their endeavor to reclaim fallen humanity. Tho hearts and souls of men had boon aroused by tho claims of iho Gormans, who woold not only desecrate tho Sabbath, bui turn it into a day of debauchery. Remarks of a similar, it might bo said very similar, nature wore mado by J. W. Murphy, Henry W. Clark, and P. H. McLogan, after which several persons came forward and signed tho call. The meeting adjourned until Sunday next, at the samo tune and place. HYDE PARK. The miscellaneous Business Trans* acted at tlio Last meeting- of tlio Vil lage Trustees. A regular mooting of tho Hyde Park Trustees was hold on Friday afternoon, and tho following bills warn ordered to ho paid? Goo. M. Boguo, 81,062.50; Wilks & Collins, 83.26; Chae. E. Popo, 8126; Richard S. Thompson, 81,700; police roll, 8085; Oharnloy Bros. & Co., 884.86; Charles Creighton, 8100; John McCaffrey, $1,365.- 89; Andrew Wright, 8125; 11. B. Boguo, 8380,- 40; Hyde Park Gas Co., 8105.67; N. Durthick, $20.88'. Boatty & Barker, $4,700.42; pay rolls on sundry improvements, $703.05; total, $11,378.- 01. A number of bills woro presented and re ferred. Tho following plat of a subdivision was ap proved : Bosubdivision of tho west 70 foot (in cluding alloy) of Lota 1, 2, and 3 of Crookor & Boss 1 Subdivision of Lot 1, in Block 1, of Salton- Btall & Russell's Subdivision of north of northoost if of southeast if of 800. 3, Town ship 38, North Bongo 14 E. Tho remonstrance of tho Bov. Robert W. Pat terson against tho construction of a sidewalk on Forty-third street was presented and referred. Tho petition of 0. B. Nelson and thirty-five others, to have tho prico of liquor licenses fixed at not loss than SSOO, was presented and ro- 4 ferred. It was subsequently resolved that no 1 liquor license bo granted on and after the Ist of July noxt, except the applicant comply with all existing regulations, and pay into the Village Treasury SSOO. Capt. George W. Blnford’s police report for May showed that forty-six arrests had boon made. The'amount of fines assessed was $695, and tho amount collected, S4OO. Tho fines of william Bocho and Patrick Has sett, SIOO each, for breaking into the Union Avenue Pound, woro remitted. Tho Hyde Park Gas Company and Beatty & Barker were permitted to arrange for tho pas sage of a gas main through the Fifty-first street sower at Madison avonuo, without prejudice to tho village of Hyde park. Tho Treasurer was excused from his expected report, on bis statement that hla books are yet in tho hands of tho Auditing Committee. Tho Superintendent was authorized to sprinkle Hyde Park avonuo, Oak and Forty-seventh streets when ho deems it necessary, provided the residents pay one-half tho expense to repair (the crossings in Cleavorviilo, and to repair the crossings to tho manholes in tho Oak street sewer. The Board then adjourned until noxt Saturday. “BUSTED.” Tho Sunday Times announced yesterday that, tho series of scandalous articles known as “ Walks Among tho Churches ” would be closed with tho one printed In that issue, but neglected to famish Us readers with any reasonable excuse for terminating them before tho tea-table slander of every church in the city had boon retailed in a greatly exaggerated form. Tho public mind, however, can readily supply tho deficiency. Tho fearlessness of tho Rev. Dr. Sullivan in expelling from his church tho man who blackmailed and calumniated tho most respectable members of his congregation, and tho general sentiment of approval which greeted his prompt and energetic treatment of tho offender, convinced tho man agers of tho Times that blackguardism is not quite so popular everywhere as it is in their own office. They have discovered that tho bettor classes of Chicago people are firmly grounded in a religious faith of one kind or an other, and will not tolerate anything that tends to bring Christianity into disrepute, and make it tho subject of jibes and Jeers of wicked men. Alarmed for its circulation list and advertising patronage, both of which have-boon decreasing rapidly of late, tho Times has boon compelled to ?ive its falsifying pedestrian a rout. But tho uu ortunato young man should not bo blamed for what ho could not possibly help. Tho Bov. Mr. Sullivan does not blame him, because ho knows that ho was only tho helpless medium through whom tho blackguardism of others was circu lated, and all tho other people who bavo suffered from his dirty work should treat him In the same kindly spirit. lie know ho was doing wrong, and f&ln would load a life of average respectability, but pov erty stared him in tho face, and the malovolonco wont on. His fate has boon a sad one. and should bo a solemn warning to all young Jour nalists. Bincoho commenced to walk among the churches and sneak into people's back-yards in order to overhear tho tittle-tattle of tho do mestic circle, he has wasted away to a more shadow. Already tho beetle Hush of consump tion reddens his sunken cheeks, and his atten uated form is torn and wrenched by a hacking cough. Ills oldest friends have deserted him, ana those who woro once happy In his acquaint ance now shun him as tho true Irishman does tho informer. Tho unhappy young man de serves tho sincere sympathy of every Christian person, and will undoubtedly bo rewarded with good and kind deeds for the evil ho has done.

When His Honor, Judge Drummond, overruled tho demurrers in tho Indiana suits brought by Tenney, Flower & Abercrombie against the Republic Insurance Company, In bankruptcy, Tub Tribune duly chronicled tho fact.

Tho main point of tho defense was an objection ns to tho legality of tho proceedings of tho Doard of Directors as to tho increase of stock after tho amendment of tho charter. Tho find ing of the Court on this point was that, tho Directors had repeatedly recognized and af firmed tho increase of stock; that tho subscribers pad acquiesced in it, and afterwards taken partin tho mootings of tho company, voting for Direct ors, and receiving dividends; and that they wore therefore estopped from nowobjootingto Bald increase of capital stock, winch had boon legalized, and to which no valid objection could at this Into poriod ho raised ; that tho demurrers must therefore ho overruled; and tho stock holders bo hold liable to pay tho assessments already made. Now lot Tenney & Co. lookout for an Irruption of Times savages, wanting to know, you know. OPINIONS PUBLISHED.

Between tho hours of 8 and 0 o’clock last Saturday night, some highwayman surprised William Watts, at tho corner of Jefferson and Hubbard streets, and, after knocking him down, robbed him of his pocket-book, containing $lB, and a watch and chain valued at $35. A still alarm was given tho Little Giant En gine at half-past 11 o'clock yesterday morning, lor a fire in a two-story building, No. 525 South Canal street, occupied by Ahron Bros, as a grocery store. Damage on building, S2O; no in surance. Tho fire was occasioned by tho upset ting of a korosono lamp. ' At.4 o’clock yesterday morning tho residence of Luther Burly, No. 280 West Lake street, was entered by thieves. An entrance was obtained by forcing open a bade door. Tho houso was thoroughly ransacked, and $l6O worth of prop erty carried off. Tho.robbory was not discovered until tho perpetrators had departed. • Cincinnati Enquirer editorial t “ Tho Jubilco at Chicago, designed to advertise one or two railroads and two or throe hotels, sooms to have boon a success so for as crowd and nolso wore concerned. Judging from tbo Chicago papers tho proportion of thieves to sight-soora was un duly groat. Tho affair had about as much to do with musio as an Indian corn-danco." Tho body of an unknown man was found in tho Ohicago Bivor, near tho Lako street bridge, , at 5 o’clock yesterday morning, by Isaac Eaton ■of tho tug-boat Miller. Officer Condon took tho (body out of tho wator and Bout it to tho Morgue. It was that of a man of light complexion, light >hair and moustache, dressed in block coat and ■vest, dork ribbed pants, and whito shirt, and ap parently 60 years old.

A strong effort is being made to arrange an other match between Übassy and Bessungor at the French game. Tom Foley la willing to back the former, and give odds of 800 points in 800 : but there seems to bo a misunderstanding about the gate receipts which cannot bo got over very easily. Übassy claims, and with considerable justice, too, that ho cannot afford to givo such odds unless two-thirds of tbo receipts are guar anteed to him in any ovont, His namo draws moro than two-thirds of the spectators, and ho believes that ho ought to derive some benefit from it. The Bossungor party are willing to play, but they want an equal share of the proceeds of ticket-selling, or will arrange tbo game so that the winner may take all tbo money. Übassy will accept the latter proposition, but will play only 750 to 500. Now chore is no need of ail this wrangling. Hr. Rapp, Bosaungor’a backer, mode money out of the other games, and as ho cannot very well lose anythingin the pro posed match, ho ought to tako a little risk and concede something to tbo foreigner. If the game is amicably arranged, tbo billiard business will bo considerably benefited, and the general public will think bettor of the professional players than ever before. A large number of people ore anxious to soo Übassy in a longer f ame than ho has yet played, and it depends on iroly on Rapp whether they shall bo satisfied or (Dot.

Tho question of cheap transportation is one In which tho East, as woll as tho West, has a deep Interest. Tho East was tho first to demand cheaper transportation for tho agricultural staples grown at tho West. It claimed that tho lowering of freight would to that extent lower tho prices of those commodities. Tho Western farmers now mako tho samo|domands, holding that tho result would ho so much added to tho homo-prlco of corn, hoof, pork, and other largo staples. Those aro the views at either oud of tho lino, and tho question comes up, wuioii is moiiT ? Hero Is what tho Few England Farmer has to say on tho subject j FAHMIKO AT THE EAST AND WEST. Wo publish In another column a Idler from lowa, In which tho writer appeals to (bo Eastern world to cotno to tho aid of Western farmers In their efforts to socuro cheap transportation. Wo aro not sure that tho Interest of tho wholo of tho •* Eastern world M lies in tho direction Indicated by our correspondent. Western produce is already offered in our markets at prices with which Now England farmers find themselves unablo to compote, and many of us aro at a loss to dolonmuo what crops can bo raised with a profit on our old form*. Wilt a reduction of freights on agricultural produce benefit tho Eastern farmer? Tho consumers of tbo East, however, commenced tho agitation of tho subject of cheaper freights before* tho producers of tho West moved In tho mattor, but wo suppose (holr purpose is to sccuro lower prices hors rather than to advance prices at tho West,—to re duce tbo cost of living for tlio booofit of manufac turers at tbo East, instead of augmenting tbo Incomo of tbo Western farmer. Possibly a roductlofi.or frolglitn may benefit both par ties), but which will secure tho llon'fl share will of course depend upon clrcumatancofl, —prominent among which are tho relations of supply and demand. It would bo well to oonuidor tho question in all Us varied aspects. So long as tho prices in Liv erpool control tho prices of Western agricul tural staples, so long will tho Western farmer havo tho lion’s share In tho profits of low freights to tho seaboard. Bat, if wo depended on Now England alone for our markot, there is no doubt that tho scales would bo turned against us, Tho samo paper points to OTHER CAUSES, as follows Wo do not doubt that Western farmers havo good cause of complaint against the exactions of railroads and other monopolies; but wu are not entirely satisfied that those are tho solo, or oven tho chief, causes of their grievances. , Tho Western country has been settled with wonder ful rapidity during tho past few years, mid wo pre sume that tho development of manufacturing nud otbor Industrial interests has boon outstripped by that of agriculture. With an unlimited area of virgin soil, and with an amount of labor-saving machinery ami Implements that has enabled one man to do tho work that formerly required from two to ton men, is over-production an inadmissible conclusion 7 What else can bo Inferred from tho prices In Eastern markets of somo kinds of farm products; for Instance, corn at 70 cents, or less, a bushel by tbo car-load; cattle at fi cents a pound, Uvo weight; and Indian meal and wheat-aborts at prices which put them in competition with our manure heaps 7 Tho “ Western fever,” also, In our opinion, has been an active cause of tbo “great and fast-growlug dllll cultlos 11 of which our lowa correspondent complain* so earnestly. Immigration has been stimulated by alt tho moans which laud-speculators could devise. Not only individuals, hut State boards and agricultural societies. have sent circulars and hand-books Into oil countries, containing tho most attractive statements of the advantages of their particular localities ; and, lu many cases, tbceo moans havo been backed by agents of good address and eloquent speech, who have boon scut out to " compel men to come In.” Probably no such amount of outside Influence was ever brought to hear on the settlement of any other country. In tho Eastern portion of tho United States, tho new settlements encroached on tbo primitive forests grad ually, and with somo regard to social privileges aud market conveniences; In tho West, individuals wishing for “ Government laud ” havo pushed ahead Into tho wilderness or on to tho prnirlo, with littlo regard to latitude or longitude, with n long road, and a hard ouo to travel, between their farms and markets,—between themselves and their neigh bors. At tho East, every pioneer’s coblu was a manu factory,—tho clothing ana ovon tho fow Implements re aulred on a wooded farm were mostly homo-mndo; at io West, tho now settler must raise and send to mar kot produce enough to pay for nearly nil these things, in addition to tho costly Implements now deemed es sential on Western farms. At tho East, os domestic manufacturing declined, factories sprung up in the Immediate vicinity of these households, and a better demand for tho products of tho field enabled farmers to pay for tho articles formerly manufactured at the .fireside; while, at tho West, tho farm and the factory arc, as yet, fur apart, aud transportation from oho to tho other has become tho most prominent question of tho times. This is a very fair and correct view of tho situation ; to which wo may add n general thiev ing in all high places, until the State and local taxes become enormous. Wo may well begin to look for other leaks than high freights. mou fares do little damage to the farmer, and It is really a matter of indifference to him whether the faro is 3 or 0 cents a mile, as he has little need of travel so far as hia business is concerned ; but such faros as tend to keep him at homo are damaging to the railroads that persist in making the rates' so high or to drive off or prevent traveling. There is a short road running from Paris to Decatur, that charges 3 cents a mile, and everybody rides, and the cars are daily filled, and yet the route is through a strictly agricultural section. Cheap freights to the soa-board are what the West needs, In order to compote in the British market with the product of Northern Europe, In the days of hand-labor there was some rea son tor talking about a homo-demand for the surplus products of rural labor; but, with im proved machinery, that has loss weight, and wo must seek a broader market. One of the solu tions of this state of things is tbo introduc tion of A MORE DIVERSIFIED IIIJBDANDRY Thore aro many things that wo now purchase that should bo produced at h'uno. name of tbeso aro limited m demand, yot all of thorn mako an aggregate of no small Importance. 1 will select, as a sample, OAKARY-SEED. This seed is grown mainly along tho coast of the Mediterranean Sea, and costs there about $1 a bushel, to which is added $1 for duty. To this is addod inland freights, cartage, commission, and dealers* profit; and tho wife or daughter, to food hor bird, must pay 15 conts a pound for it, or at tho rato of $y a bushoi. Some years ago I cultivated 80 acres of this seed for somo three years ia succession; but, as tho plant delights la a moist oliroato, tho crop avorugod only about throo bushels to tho aero. In a location suited to its growth, it would provo a profitable crop,—tho west sido of Michigan, or tho peninsula of Oroou Bay, or perhaps in somo or tho low lands in tho Middlo States, or in Oregon. OP BUTTEU AND CREESE wo may go on adding factory after factory, long boforo tho local demand is supplied. After one goes south of Bloomington, if ho would travel among tho people of either village or home steads, ho will seldom find choose ou tho table, and not always at points north; and thou how many fanners in Illinois, Missouri. lowa. Kansas, and Nebraska have a fall supply of butter for tho wintor months ? Tho truth is, that tho Western farmer has to pur chase too many things of foreign growth, to which heavy freight charges aud profits aro added. Tho spinning-wheel, tho hand-loom, aud tho knitting-noodlo will uovor come back to tho farm, for ihoir plaeo has boon supplied; but wo need a broader field for tho labor that is now supplying tho market with a surplus of pro ducts, and thus bringing down tho prices below tho cost of production. Tho law or supply* and demand is invariable in overy department of lifo, aud tho surplus or shortage is the great ar biter of values.

It is a well-bound volume of over 300 pages, largo octavo, and contains, in addition to tho transac tions of tho State Society, those of tho Northern Illinois Horticultural Society. Tills is the seven teenth annual report. No one society in tho State has had such a steady, useful inlluonco as this. This has been in part duo to Blato aid to tho extent of $2,000 a year for tho past seven years \ hut, strange to say, tho so-called farmers and horticulturists of tho Legislative Farmers* Club slaughtered a bill for tho reorganization of tho Society after it had passed the Senate. Wo do not think that a majority of the members of that wonderful Club knew enough about farm ing to mako them unfit for othor business, such as pettifogging, land-agents, selling sowing machines or lightning-rods, etc. It Is cerium Hint they know llttlo of tlio horticultural history of tho Htato, and tho moving power that has placed tho State at tho head of this industry, or they would not have pursued tho course that strangled, for a time, this useful institution.

Just ns soon ns tho heads aro fully out, and be fore blooming, is tho best timo to out, at least, if wo bavo much to out, uo delay beyond that period should bo permitted, unless tbo weather is really bad. Hay made this early in tho season, and thoroughly cured, is worth nearly doublo that out lato in tho season. Tho crop is heavy, and, as com will bo of more valuo than hay. it is an object to got tbo hay nil soonrod In tho best condition and at tho proper timo. Hay that is out this early will ho of as much valuo for wintor-fooding as shock-corn; and this should bo another argument in favor of o&rly cutting. If wo wait until tho grass is In full bloom, tho blossoms will make it full of dust, —“ bay-fog," ns it is called, —and this is liablo to givo horses a bad cough, if it docs not load to the heaves. It is woll known that prolrio-slough hay makes good forage, If out boforo tho full growth is completed.

Tho bluo grass is ready to cut now ? and for two weeks wo have boon soiling our teams with it, and ilnd that it saves nearly half of tho usual feeding of corn. CORN-PLANTING IS PROGRESSING, as fast as tho woathor will permit, and the crowd ing of tho toams have developed tho fact that tho epizootic loft its traces behind, and many teams show signs of weakening. Some farmers, who havo adopted tho plan of harrowing tho corn before it pricks through, aro out with tho harrow, and find that it has a good offset In warming up tho cold giound,as It admits tho warm air and tho Httlo sunshine that wo have. Many farmers havo given up all hopes of planting tho low land, and will leavo it out for summer fallow. GRIDS OF CORN that havo boon loft open, or partially covered, aro boating.

Bo said two wooks more of nogloct would havo placed it below any market-value, and bo desired mo to worn others who havo boon as careless. Bubal. EMOTIONAL INSANITY. Joseph Ifl. Foro Assaults Ills Wife with a KSntcliot—lloiiuiuo of Fore’s History and His Misdeeds—Tho mur der of iritinson and tho Remarkable Verdict. From the St. Louie G7o6c, June 5. A rumor became current upon tho streets oarly yesterday afternoon to tho effect that tho noto rious Joseph H. Ford had killed his wifo with a hatchet, and so rapidly did tho rumor gain cred ence that before it was fully circulated it re ceived tho addition that ho had chopped her up into Httlo bits with his littlo hatchet. A Otobe reporter was at once dispatched to ascertain tho facta in tho case, and, after dili gent inquiry from tho lady herself, found that tho mattor had boon considerably exaggerated. Pore returned to tho city on Monday last from Vicksburg, whore ho has boon for tho pastfivo wooks, ana since that time has repeatedly sought an interview with bis wifo, which ho succeeded in procuring yesterday. Mrs. Alice Fore’s statement is as follows: Sho says that since his return ho has dogged her stops continually. That on Tuesday evening sho came down with hor mother, who was going to church, as far ns tho residence of Mr. M. A. Benjamin, on Washington avenue, near Eleventh street, and sho (Mrs. Foro) remained thoro while hor mother went to church. Mr. Benjamin and his family being old acquaintances of hors, and sho being afraid to remain alono at her father’s house, No. 1421 Christy avonuo. That after-she had. boon there for a short timo it was discovered that hor husband, Joseph, H v Fore, was loitering about outside tho promises evidently intont upon some mis chief. Mr. Beniamin wont out and hold n conversation with Foro, who informed him that ho had decided objections to his wife visiting his (Benjamin’s) house. Benjamin replied that sho was always welcome at his houso as long as sho behaved herself. That ho was an old friend of herself and family, and that ho know her before Lor marriage with Foro. This did not seem to pacify Fore much, but ho finally loft, saying that Benjamin had hotter not accompany Mrs. Foro homo. On the return of Mrs. Babcock (Mrs. Fore’s mother), they proceeded homo, and noth ing more was hoara of Fore until yesterday morning, when ho made his appearance at Miss Cunningham’s millinery establishment, on Fourth street, where his wifo is learning the trade. Ution his entrance, Mrs. Foro says she noticed ho looked angry. Ho accosted her, and inquired if it waa hor determination to desert or leave him. Sbo replied that it was? that bo badnotsup- Eovtod her, and that abo would never consent to vo with bim again. Ho tbon said : “If that ia your determination, you will novor leave the chair you aro Bitting upon.” Upon uttering this threat bo loft tbo store, but roturnod in about balf an hour, in a Tory aullon humor, and, tak ing a Boat boaldo her, repeated bia interrogation, and, upon a repetition of bor intention to loavo bim, ho caught bor by the baud, and put bia band behind him, when abo pulled away from bim and atartod to run, saying that abo was not going to remain to bo killed by him. Ho thou eat down again, abo taking a position upon tbo otbor aido of tbo table, boar which bo was sit ting* Finally Hire. Foro and Alice Donolly, also an employe of tbo establishment, started from tbo atoro to go to dinner. They wont to tbo Washington avenue car atand, on Fifth and St. Charles streets, wboro they in tended taking a car, but Foro, who in sisted ou accompanying thorn, objected to bis wife's entering the car, when Hiss Donolly con cluded to take tbo conveyance, but Mrs. Foro begged of bor not to do so, as sbo was afraid to remain alono with bor husband. Finally they walked together up Washington avetmo as far as Tenth street, when bo tola bor that bo was going to loavo tbo city, and requested her to shako hands with him and bid him good-bye. She extended bor right band, which bo grasped with bis loft, and with tbo right drew a Latcnot and struck at bor bead. Tbo brat time bo missed bis aim, but with murder in bia heart bo repeat ed tbo blows, threo times striking bor with tbo hatchet, each time upon tbo bead.' At tbo third blow sbo fell into tbo gutter, at tbo same time vociferously crying murder. . Fore, evidently satisfied that bo had dispatched bor, throw tbo hatchet into tbo street and started to mu. Some f;ontloman, attracted by tbo cries of tbo wounded ady rushed after Fore, and, gathering a couple of stones, hurled them at bim, but without seri ous effect. At this juncture, some men who wore passing in a wagon jumped out and cap tured the would-be .assassin, and a policeman appearing on tbo Bconb took obargo of tbo cul prit and deposited bis worthless carcass in a coll of tbo Third District Station, whore bo was al lowed time to ruminate on bis misdeeds. Mrs. Pore was picked up and taken across the street to tho residence of Mr. Benjamin, near Eleventh street, whore medical aid was sum moned. Tho Hint physician proscribed “ a little cold water,” and pronounced tho wounds not of a dangerous character. Ho did not give his mime, but said that ho had bean a witness In tho Pore-Beach murder case. Dr,P. 8. O’llollly was then sent for, and, upon arriving, proceed ed to dross tho wounds, ilo gave it us his opin ion that tho wounds would not result fatally, with proper care. Mrs. Pore is a lady of more than ordinary in telligence, of loss than medium stature, prepos sessing in appearance, and seemingly of a mild, quiet disposition. It will do remembered that Joseph 11. Fore re ceived an unenviable notoriety through tho newspapers ut the time of Ids murder of Mun son 11. Beach about two years ago, and this last act will not militate to his advantage in tho Im provement of tho character lie has borne since, lie is said to boa miserable, good-for-nothing monomaniac, and tho community would bo well rid of him. If ho is crazy ho should bo sent to tho asylum;' but If, as many suppose, there is ‘''method in his madness, 1 ’ then ho Is bettor lil ted Penitentiary, Through tho “ omg- tional insanity " dodgo ho escaped his deserts on tho gallows. . , ~ tfivo yearn ago he married hia wife, then a charming young girl, but now failing rapidi ly in consequence of tho ill-treatment received at tho hands of the tormentor who should bo hor protector. Prior to bio going South, five weeks since, ho was being supported by tho Church which ho had Joined ostensibly In good faith, though, as ho is said afterwards to avo declared, “to find out how many (I——d hypocrites there woro in tho Church." Atono timo Mr. Beniamin, tho gentleman above referred to, befriendon him m various ways, and hod oven taken him and his wife to his own homo and kept them, whik Fore, to re pay Ids kindness, threatened to kill him. Ills attempt to murder his wife would certain ly havo boon successful, hut for tho fact that her hat and ohignon hroko tho force of tho blows. Tho hatchet was an old one and quite dull, and to those two circumstances may ho attributed her lucky escape. Mrs. Fore will at least ho confined to her room for n time in consequence of hor wounds. In the fall she received, hoc wrist was badly injured. Tho particulars of tho 'murder of Munson Beach are still fresh in tho public mind, and they havo not yot forgotten tho paltry plea upon which Fore was acquitted of that cold-blooded murder, To refresh tho memory of thoso who may havo forgotten tho circumstances, wo givo place to tho following recital of iho facts: • On tho night of July 27,1871. Joseph H. Foro, who hod thon boon separated from his wife for a fow weeks, she having Bought protection from hor brother-in-law, Munson Beach, was passing tho house whore Beach resided, on ,I‘mo street, between Seventh and Eighth streets, when he espied Beach sitting npon tho front doorstops. Foro had conceived a deadly antipathy toward Beach, attributing to him tho occasion of tho trouble botwoon birasolf and wifo, and, wbon opposite tbo front of No. 710, bo deliberately drew a revolver from his pocket and fired upon Beach, indicting a wound which finally resulted In his death. Ho fired a second shot which, however, did not tako effect. Ho then ran into tho alloy botwoon Seventh and Eighth streets, and, on tho way, fired a third shot at a youth who was pursuing him. Foro wandered about nil tlmt night, and finally gavo himself up to tho police in Caron dolot. At tho proposal of a preliminary examination In tho Court of Criminal Correction, ho waived on examination, waa indicted by tho Grand Jury, and had his trial in the Criminal Court, com mencing on tho Bth of April, 1872, and ending in his acquittal on tho 1-lth of tho anmo month. ‘ A Jury was chosen , from a voniro of eighty names, and bo was by that Jury acquitted on the plea of “emotional insanity. The following persons composed tho jury s Louis Ganzhorn, Erallo Hahn, John M. Collins. 01lvoi\Qumotto, Patrick Douahoo, Patrick Coulaii, Joseph Born part, Louis H. Bompart, Andreas Buhl, John Zoigonhoin, Samuel Corcoran, and Bernard Doickraan. Tfaoro aro now two cases ponding in tho Crim inal Court against Fore, charging him with as sault with intont to kill, aud now tho last straw has boon heaped upon tho camel's back, which may result in some punishment. “Emotional insanity” will hardly savo him again. At this timo Foro is only 25 years of age, while bis wife is but 21. SPECIAL NOTICES. Foreign Indorsement of the Stand ard Tonic of America.
