8 FREIGHT CONUNDRUMS. The Railroad and AVarchouso Commissioners* Matinee. Some of iho Puzzlers Propounded by Sharp Ituilroud Mon. The Railroad and Warehouse Commissioners wore in session again yesterday. They hold a sort of reception, and received calls from a num ber of prominent railroad managers, who sought information on tho subject of tho now law. They rather puzzled tho Commissioners by propound ing conundrums it would take a Philadelphia lawyer to solve. They desired It to bo informed of iho construc tion put by tho Commissioners on tho law. For instance, it was inquired If tho distance from Chicago to Pana, 228 miles by the Illinois Cen tral, was at tho rato of so much por car, could tho 6t. Louis A Alton and the Southeastern charge only tho same rato to tho same place, the distance being tbs same, or should tho Alton Rood charge local rates to Springfield, and tho Southeastern local rates thence to Pana ? That was a puzzler, which tho Commissioners did not answer. Then It was asked if railroads could bo shippers under tho law: that la, if iho Rockford, Rock Island A Bt. Lonis Rood, for example, could ship on tho Northwestern at Sterling the grain collected on tho lino, or would tho person who shipped tho grain originally continue tho shipper until tho grain reached Ohlongo ? Of course If tho roads could bo shippers, they could contract for ship ping largo quantities, and tho local rates conld bo evaded by one road employing tho othor os its agent. Tuo railroad men themselves loaned to tho opinion that railroads could not bo shippers under tho law; that they wore simply agents of the persons who originally. employed them to carry tho groin. Another Interesting question was, if one road, e»y 100 miles long, carried freight to a cer tain point, would two othor roads, reaching tho samo point ■by a roundabout way, say 160 miles long, bo allowed to carry tho same quan tity of freight at the same rato as tho shorter route, as they have done heretofore, in order to got some of tuo business ? The Commissioners, as in tho othor oases, declined to give a positive answer, but the opinion seemed to be that tho shorter route would have to tako tho business and destroy competition by giving to one rood a monopoly of tho freight now divided between two roads. Still another problem was presented. The Northwestern Hoad has a lino to Fulton, on the Mississippi River, and receives grain from Winonany boat. The Milwaukee & St. Paul, however, baa a direct lino from Winona to Mil* waukoo, whence the grain is shipped East with* out coming through Ohioago. At present tho two linos compete, the Milwaukee A St. Paul to take tho grain to Milwaukee, and tho North western to bring it to Chicago. Tho raco from Fulton to Chicago is about double tho rato from "Winona to Chicago by tho Northwestern, tho treat quantity of grain—some millions of usholfl—coming from "Winona, enabling tho road to carry it at comparatively low rates. Now, if tho Northwestern is com pelled by law to charge on tho grain from" Winona tho rato from Fulton to Chicago, tho trade will bo diverted to Milwaukee. Tno question arose as to whether tho company was bound to ohargo local rates on freight coming from without tho State. This also involved tho questions of how for existing contracts with per sons in other States will bo affected by the now law, and if they are not affected con similar con tracts bo made when tho law is In operation ? Tbo Commissioners did not assume tho responsi bility of deciding. The railroad raon "said they woro anxious to obey tho law and its letter as nearly as they could, but when tho law was equivocal and of doubtful construction, they wished to bo guided by tho opinion of tho Board. Tho Board an* nouuced its intention of considering all questions as they aroso under tho law and of promulgating Us decision. Among the visitors was Mr. Reynolds, propri etor of tho “ Diamond Jo® ” lino of boats, run ning between Winona and Fulton on tho Missis sippi. Ho wanted his Inspector at Fulton recog nized as a State officer, so that tho grain could bo graded at Fulton and save time in Chicago. It is probable that tho matter will bo arrangecl to accommodate tho trod® at Fulton, Mr. Harper*" tbo Chisf Inspector, announcing his willingness to znako tho best arrangement ho obuld under tho law. Several elevator men diaouflßod with the Board the best mode of collecting out inspection foes, expressing themselves ready to collect the foes without assuming any responsibility therefor. It is not likely, however, that any material inno vation will bo made in the system now in vogue. RUFFIANISM ON THE NORTH SIDE. 2b the Editor a t The Chicago Tribune: Sin: Patience has ceased to be a virtue, and something must bo done to check the lawless ness of young vababonda growing up In our midst. How long are such intolerable nui sances to bo allowed to exist ? One of tho latest outrages of a large gang of young roughs, mostly boys of all nationalities, living on Sedg wick street, above Chicago avenue, is to fix hose on to hydrants and let the water play In torrents npon peaceful passers by,—ladies with infants In their anna, and all, indiscriminately. la there no police on this street to keep order and stop anoh ruffianly proceedings ? Last Saturday evening a couple of men, between White and Oak streets, were quietly permitted to hew and slash ooob other to pieces, while, for a space of fully fifteen min utes, a half-dozen lamp-posts wore being ham mered; but not till tho butchering was overdid a “cop " walk coolly by, looking os innocent aa a babe. -We must insist on having our servants attend to tboir business, or they may bo sent off with a flea in their oar.

At 6 o’clock last evening a still alarm was given to the Little Giant Engine, on Maxwell street, for a fire in a pile of corn-husks in a mattress fac tory, at No. 572 South Canal street. The fire was caused by a lighted match being thrown in the pile. Nominal damages. Roundsman Vosoy, of the Madison Street Po lice Station, yesterday swore out a warrant for tho arrest of Matthew Westbrook, the proprietor of the notorious lodging-houses which boar bis name, and yesterday evening, about 8 o’clock, Westbrook was arrested on tho charge of being the keeper of lewd resorts. Ho was bailed out about 9 o’clock, and tho case sot for hearing to-morrow. Veaey has been for some weeks collecting evidence for use at the examination, and tho prisoner will only secure an ocquittal by conclusively proving that the charges against him ore false. Tho alarm of flro from Box 13, at half-past 10 o’clock last night, was occasioned by tho discov ery of flamos m the bakery of Thompson it Tem pleton, at Nos. 211 and 218 Bandolph street. Tho fire was caused by a defective furnace. It was extinguished by‘Ben Bullwiuklo’s Fire Patrol some minutes before tho arrival of the Fire De partment. Loss, about $25. As Hook and Lad der Company No. 2 wore responding to this alarm, their truck was upset by coming In con tact with a butcher wagon at the comer of M°nroo and Jefferson streets. David Busch and J. P.

Tho batcher wagon was considerably demolished, 4 Tho alarm of flro from Box 112, at half-past 1 o’clock yostorday afternoon, was occasioned by a very peculiar blaze. A rag-man, who waa driving north on Halstod street, near Thirty fifth, fu a rickety wagon hauled by a crow-bait horse, had his nasal cry of “rags" changed to a shriek of “ flro, fire," by observing a wreath of smoko our] up from a precious pile of rags in the wagon bod behind him, which was fol lowed by a timid llamo. This grow bold, and, before the rag-dealer could put it out, tho whole stock was in names. The spectacle of a load of fire being hauled through the streets sB alarmed some persons residing in the vicinity; that an alarm was turned in as before stated. It was speedily enough responded to, but it was nip-and-tuok with tho load of fire and tho engines as to whloh should catoh the other. They did not meet, and tho result was the total destruction of the wagon and its contents, saving the driver himself. In attempting to catoh this dangerous vehicle, Frank Butterfield, tho assistant foreman of tho Long John engine, was thrown from his hose cart, ami had his leg badly bruised. tombnra University, Galesburg, 111* Galesburg, HI., Juno 18.—Tho Commence ment exercises of the Lombard University, in this city. took Place to-day. and wore witnessed by a largo andionco.

If; however, a vigorous and gen and disinfecting policy is adopted, wo can hope from tho favorable results of former efforts in tho samo way that tho visitation will ho light. It may bo comforting to call tho attacks which have thus far occurred sporadic, and on tho strength of this high-sounding adjootivo await what is coming in euplno indifference, but It certainly is not sensible. In 1800, 11 sporadic M cases, which wore as fatal as tho epidemic ones that speedily followed, broke out in a Ingor-boor seller’s, family on tho oast,sldo'of Sycamore street, just abovo Fifth, and wo know no reason why the present droppings may not bo begin nings of as deadly a storm os that which swept over our city seven yearn ago. There is abun dant cause for action, and if speedy and efficient action is taken, there will bo small grounds for alarm. Fear kills about as many persons as dis ease, and there is no hotter preventive of panio than tho conviction on tho part of tho communi ty that every possible precaution is being taken. All that then remains for the private citizen to do is to soo that his own promises are in good order, and that bis food is well chosen, ana that his habits are cleanly and prudent. ,3 1 1 .3 3 3 .4 4* 8 NEW YORK.

Tho Condition of tho Orchards In tho Fruit District, With Some Suggoi« tions as to Fruit-Growing* FennvUU, Mich, (June 10), Correspondent* of Ute De troit Tribune. As I havo doomed much that has boon pub lished on fruit prospects since our sovoro winter premature, I haro waited till wo could got facto. I have intelligence from tbo States of Missouri and Illinois, wbore tbo poach crop has boon out off, and tbo trees injured. In tho southern part of Illinois they may hard some seedling peaches. Accounts from Bt. Joseph and Denton Harbor, Mioh., aro oonlltotlng and discouraging. I be lieve tboy»will havo but few poaches thoro. I havo talked with two fruit-growora from Spring Lako and Fmitnort, who inform mo their pooch crop Is killed, though thoy woro thankful that their orchards were not killed. A neighbor of mine Jo AUogan County was requested to prune a largo pooch orchard near Allegan (about twenty miles west of Lake Michi gan), and found tho trees all killed by tho severe winter, which I suppose is true of others that distance from tho lake. My own orchard Is situated throe miles from tho lake, on elevated land and clay soil. About one-ninth of my peach trees aro cither injured or killed, tbo rest of them promise from half to throo-fourths of a crop of different varieties, including Crawfords. Borne neighbors immediately on tho lake shore havo lost about ono-ilfth of their trees, though tho other parte of those orchards promise flue crops—and somo varieties a full crop. Wo find no practical difference between orch ards near tho lako and well-managed ones throo or four milos back. Mr. Drossier has just re fused $4 per bushel for a large crop, delivered at the railway depot. Applos, poors, grapes, etc., promise a forgo crop tuts season. Tho winter-killing presents a now phase. Trees that ore now dead in Iho early spring gave prom ise of a full crop. They blossomed and sot fruit

profusely. Other trees of the same ago and variety, and subjected to tho samo treatment as iho injured ones, woro not injured ju tbo least. Thoro was no top-killing, but tho whole difficulty . was at the collar of tho troo or roots. Trees that are deeply planted aro uninjured and bearing, while those whose roots aro near tbo surface are injured or killed. Parties who did not cultivate their orchards last year havo the best wintered trees this season, though good poaches cannot bo raised in that way. Wo conclude that it was not tho severity of cold that killed tho trees, but too shallow planting. Are wo right ? Your correspondent from Derlin, Ottawa County, thinks “ Lako Bhoro theory is a hum bug,” which ought to bo exploded or modified. Dut wo foel more fully convinced that tho Lako Bhoro is tho only safe place to raise poaches, and tbo only modification that wo soe is a determina tion to plant moro trees. On tho shore, and throo miles back on olovated places, the coldest weather that wo had last winter woe from 10 to 15 degrees below zoro—tho most severe weather over known in thoao parts, lam told. I stalo tbo foots as thoy aro in tho western part of Allegan County. Though com seemed to ripen well last fall, it fails to sprout well, and mrjuy havo hod to replant.

For Borne time past the Territorial papers have contained brief references to a proposed tunnel, which was to be earned through tho Bocky Mountains, from a point near Black Hawk, and coming out in Middle Park. Those items wore religiously copied by tho Eastern press, but tho story sounded Munobausenisb, and people in general were loth to believe in tho mammoth en terprise. Wow, however, it Is known that tho project has been fully inaugurated, and that its projector is on the ground, with ample moans and labor to prosecute the work to completion. From the Black Hawk Jotimal of Juno 13, wo obtain tho following particulars regarding tho proposed work: "Tho tunnel will be about twelve miles long. Its greatest depth will bo 6,000 foot, at James' Peak. It will mako Middle Park readily accessi ble from tho oostorn portion of the Territory: will show what is tho mineral and geological character of this section, and will tolerably ex tensively advertise tho country as tho econo of an enterprise twlco as largo and a hundred times as important as tbo Mount Cools tunnol. Col. Heaton will uso tho diamond-pointed drills, and thus not bo obliged to keep in operation numer ous blacksmith shops. They will bo driven by machinery. And It is expected that the tunnel will progress at tho rale of 6 feet per hour, or 60 foot per day. Early next year work will com mence from Middle Park. " Already considerable work has been done. Tho mountain has boon graded down for tho faco of tho tonnol; a flume I.SOO foot long bos boon built from tho crock by which a fall of 26 foot is obtained for the purpose of turning an over-shot wheel, by moans of which the tunnel is to bo supplied with air ; a strong lovoo has been built to prevent tho wators of tho crook from overflowing and embarrassing operations in tho tunnol; a largo boarding-house, 60x25 foot, and two stories high, has noon built; a substantial bridge has also been built over tho crook on tho road loading to tho Lake Gulch country. "The objects of tho tunnol aro to afford a means of working the discovered mines rapidly and cheaply, to discover and open new veins, and to afford a track for a railway. It will strike the Bobtail first of known mines, and 100 feet below tbo present tunnel. "Tho effects of tho success of this enterprise oan hardly bo estimated. It may cause to pass through our section aud under our mountains all. or nearly all, tho trans-continental travel. " Tho Company, by namo tho Biorra Madre Tunnol Company of Colorado, havo amplo capi tal, and will push tho projoot to rapidly to com pletion. . Though tbo enterprise Is of such mag nitude as to dazzle tho imagination and to stag ger and bewilder tho judgment, yot if tho min ing .resources of the country are what wo all believe thorn to bo, it is not chimerical, and is suro to bo a source of profit to tho Company and of incalculable benefit to tho Territory.

In' November, 1807, ho woe convoyed to Milbank Prison, whoro ho re mained until tho 16th of July, 1808, when ho was removed to Chatham, whoro ho remained until March, 1872. In that monthho was brought ogaiu to Milbank, and remained until tbo sth of October, 1872, when ho was discharged. During tho first port of his confinement at Milbank ho was placed under punishment and kept upon bread and water. On being brought back from Obatham to Milbank bo was placed in tho soli tary coll in tho infirmary. On tho following morning tho medical officer of tho prison, ac companied by Mr. Wilson, wont to soo him, and commoncod pricking Ins foot with noodles.

Polish Vengeance. Only ono railroad station from Warsaw, on tbo woy to Kallsb, lies tho beautiful Cautlo of Ozorma, tUo present residence of Baron Wuttiiff. Tho castlo bad once belonged to a Polish aristocrat, but had boon sold by order of the Ozar in 1802, because tho only son of Count Zodlltzky had re fused to servo against his Polish countrymen, who wore then in rebellion against Russia. Tills refusal had voro sad consequences indeed, for too old Count being driven from his homo, could not stand tho sovero shook, and soon afterward died. Baron Wuttiiff had been in command of tho lUissian forces at Warsaw during tho revolu tion. and ho had made himself an object of spe cial hatred ou account of his cruelty against all who boro a Polish uamo. lie had lately boon rewarded for his service by being ap pointed Commandor-in-Ohiof of tho Russian forces in Poland, and tho Castlo Ozorma was placed at his disposal. His headquarters wore established at Warsaw, but ho ropairod to tho castlo ovory afternoon, over which his wife and daughter presided. On tho 15th of January last the Baron ordered some poor Polos to bo Hogged because they did not clear tho road which led through tho dense forests while ho was ou his way homo. This cruel action embittered tho Inhabitants of Laros to a fearful extent, and threats wore made. Two companies of Coosauks wore ordered to Laros, and vho entrances the castlo wore closely guard ed. Tho excitement had somewhat' subsided, when, on tho 18th of March last, two strangers, attired in tho rohes of Russian clergymen, ap proached tho main entrance of tuo castlo, and requested . aholtor for tho coming night. The Baron, who was well known aa orthodox in his religion, granted tho request, and ordered tlio supposed priests to bowed taken cero of. To the surprise of tbo officer on duty next morning, the old servant in front of tho Baron’s door was lying on tho lldor breathing heavily and apparently unconscious. The alarm was immediately given, and tho doors to tho Baron's chamber was burst open. The Baron's tliroat was out front oar to car, and ids right hand was chopped off. A dagger was mu through it. thus fastening it to the near-by table, on which lay a slip of paper dontolnlng tho inscrip tion* “Polish vengeance." Tho Baron’s young daughter. Ida. who slept In an adjoining room, had likewise boon brutally murdered. Bho was stretched out on tho floor ■with an ugly stab wound in her breast, and it scorned evident that she hod endeavored to assist her father. Her mother woe bodily unharmed, only suffering from a strong doso or chloroform. Tho castlo was thoroughly searched, and nothing suspicious detected. The two counterfeit clergy men hod loft early in the morning, and had stated to tho sentinel, that they wore obliged to attend olmroh at Lares by 0 o'clock. It was, however, soon found that they bad uot taken the route to tho llttlo village, and cavalry was at once dispatched to scour tho vicinity. Five days had meanwhile elapsed, and tho arduous labors of tbo soldiers bod not boon rewarded. Tbo fuuoral of Baron Wuttliff and bis daughter bad taken placo at Warsaw. Finally, on tbo 29th of March, a telegram was received from Maj. Hoglowitob, stating that bo bad succeeded in capturing tho fugitives near tbo Prussian boundary, disguised as cattle drivers. They arrived at Warsaw on tho 2d April, ond tnado a full confession. Tho younger of tho two was Count Zodlltzky, who staled that Baron Wuttliff hod caused his fath er s exile and death, oud that ho had doomed it hie solemn duty to liberate Poland from a mon ster. Ho took tho dood entirely upon himself, and swore that his comrade was innocent. This statement was, however, not boliovod, for it bail boon ascertained that Nicholas Batzky bad b6ught tho chloroform, and that ho bad boon, until tbo death of the old Count, bis private ser vant. Both wore sentenced to bo beheaded on tho 10th of April. * An immense number of Poles wore assembled to witness the last moments of tbolr doomed compatriots, yot most all bad to return unsatis fied, for fully tbroo thousand Russian troops wore marched un near tho placo of execution. Mr. Baultsky, Warsaw’s vonorablo oxooutlonor for tho past forty years, describes this os tho most horrid execution ho bad ovor witnessed. It was evident that private instructions had boon received from tbo Russian authorities to keep Count Zodlltzky in agony as long as possible. Batzky was tho first to lay his hood on tho fatal block, and after ho had boon hurried into eter nity, tbo assistants seemed to bo in no hurry at all to oloar tho block or to romovo tbo body. They bad purposely forgotten tbo casket, and nearly fifteen minutes elapsed before Count Zod litzky was ordered to say his last prayer. Dur ing all that time, tho Count never trembled. Ho kissed the crucifix, tho fatal ax dropped, his bead fell into tho basket, tbo drums began to boat, and—Russian justice was satisfied.
