At the election for township officers held April 4, ballots were cast in the three towns of horth, South, and West Chicago for Police Magistrates. In the South and West Towns the votes were not counted, and the parties who were candidates for the office have applied for a mandamus to compel the counting °*ln North Chicago the thing was different. Two candidates appeared.-lohn Cuthbertaon, a lawy«and former Justice of the Peace, and a Mr. Maack, an em ploye in the County Clerk’s office. The votes were counted and gave Cuthbertaon a majority the Town Clerk pave him a elf tificate of election, and on Satur day oflast week hsook the official oath and offered his official bond for the approvalof CountyXlerk lieb. That official did not object to the sufficiency of the bond, but expressed doubts whether there real ly WM any such office in existence as the one to which Cuthbertaon claimed to have been elected. He, how ever. said he would obtain the opinion of the Attor nev-beneral on the subject, and would be guided by theopinion of that gentleman. He accordingly wrote to him, and yesterday the following reply was re- Lici. County Cirri, Coot County, Chicago, T/L—DeabSib: In reply to yonr letter of the 22d, I will say that towns organized under the Township Organization law are not entitled to elect Police Mag . istrates, and our Supremo Court has held that, since the adoption of the Constitution of IHiO, the City of Chicago is not entitled to elect a Police Magistrate.

THE SOCIAMSTB. The Communists are unusually active at present, and hold one meeting after another. The real object of their present activity baa not been announced, but it evidently la for the purpose of letting the people know that they are not yet dead, and to make capital for their organa, the VorboU, a German Com munist weekly published in this aty. and the Soda lift, a paper of the same sort published in the English language in New York. They_ held their third mass-meeting of the week at No. lUoNorth ave nne last evening. The small and ill-ventilated kail was well filled with a motley crowd, half of whom were anting vile Bridgeport tobacco out of abort day pipes, which madetbe air anything but wholesome oip&sSt. At about a quarter after 8 o dock the mating was called to order and Mr.. John Fettes elect«H3erman Chairman, and John McAuliff English 01 AM?es*pcakcrs, Messrs. McGuire and Luebkort, had not yet arrived. Mr. McAuliff in his nsual eloquent style asked those present to come up and join the no ble band of warriors. The initiation fee would be no barrier to their joining, as it amonSed to 5 cents only. McAuliffs eloquence Imd each an effect on the audlonca that two beardless youths stepped up to the Secretary’s desk, forked over their nickels, and received therefor a card of member shin. The rest of the audience either did not have the necessary nickel handy or they did not care much for McAuliff s exhortation. , . „ It was nearly 9 o’clock and the speakers wore still absent. The audience became restless, and many were of the opinion that their orators had been massa cred by the bloodthirsty capitalists while on their way to the meeting. This suspicion gained credence with every moment, and low murmurs of anger went through the crowd, when suddenly there occurred a commotion at the door, and the two missing Com munists made their appearance. There was great re ioidne. and they were triumphantly pushed on the i platform over the heads of a number of unregenerate workingmen, who bad not sense enough to get out of two made speeches similar to thoss delivered at the 'West-Side Turner-Hall the other evening, and when they had finished the meeting adjourned.

To Oo Editor of Tho Chieaoo TrOrnne CHioiOO. April 29,1876.—As the nm>rity report of the Investigating committee h»o not been made pub lic, end as the statements in tbs minority report are less than the whole truth regarding the Recorder's office, I beg that you will publish the following, which is an exact copy of the report made and sworn toby Mr. Holden and myself: . To the Honorable Committee on Public Records of the Board of Commissioners of Cook County : GE.-n.EMKS: The Committee appointed by your honorable body to inToetigato the condition of the of fice of the Recorder of Deeds of Cook County beg lease to submit their report. They have received from your honorable body general instructions to ascertain how the business is carried on. and whether proper re turns are made to the county. The written sugges tions, hereto attached, offered by your Chairman, it would be well nigh impossible to cany out. While they believe that the moneys received are returned honestly, they cannot but censure the general loose ness which characterises the management. They can not perceive that the incumbent of the Rocorderahlp is more *>..*. an expensive figure-head to the office, nor have they been able to see what are his active duties, even the signature of the certificate of record on each deed or instrument being left to a subordinate. In the event of the sudden death of the Chief Clerk, it would bo difficult to balance the cash. An examination of the cash items in the accompanying statement verifies this, and the attention of your honorable body is called thereto. Herewith will bo found the statement Sf the receipts and expenditures in the office since the last semi-annual report, being from Dec, 1, <5. to March 16, 16, both inclusive. Tour Committee has checked the books and daily receipt-sheets, as far as possible, since the beginning of the present term of Iffice, Dec. 2,1872, and find them, with a few trifling exceptions, correct. The amount of labor involved in mis can only be known by those acquainted with the workings of ths office. The abuses they have ob served are is follows: That tho payment in advance 0 v f—a for recording deeds and instruments is not strictly enforced. That there are too many employes connected with tho office, both salaried and folio writ ers and too many in the Abstract Department. That the recording of abstracts free is, in a measure, only a meamsof employment for folio writers when other work fails. The Committee find that it is a practice among these employes when other work fails them to solicit from outsiders abstracts (it being little matter of what age or value as records) to bo recorded. For the privilege of cumbering the records with this trash tho county baa been paying from twelve to fifteen cents per page of legal cap. Even when the county gets twenty-live cents per page for certified copies, the imount paid does not quite cover the actual outlay in labor etc. That sufficient precaution is not taken to prevent tho destruction ol records by cutting or ef facing deeds from the record books. At present, the vault is virtually free of access to anybody. That no record is kept of how much has been paid for tho re cording of each deed or instrument. In regard to tho Abstract Deportment tbw refer you to tho receipts and expenditures for January, which show a net loss of over (1,500, without taking into consideration interest on first outlay and other expenses other than salaries. Of course, it is as yet in its infancy; but your Com mittee feel no doubt that, owing to tho incompleteness of the records and tho want of confidence felt therein by the public, this department will be a heavy burden to tbe county for a long time; that the rales of tho office regarding visitors, otc n are not enforced; (bat folios in the printed forms are overestimated in the payment of folio-writers ; that there are no vouchers from the county, as far as heard from, for the semi annual returna to the Hoard. In view of tho above, your Committee feci warranted in offering tho follow ing recommendations; (1) That the Recorder be requested to exercise a stricter personal supervision of the office in all its P 1 a cash account be kept and balanced daily with the same accuracy as in a private office. (3) That the prepayment of fees for recording deeds and instruments be strictly enforced. (4) That the amount of fees charged be enforced on each deed or instrument. In ink, by the receiving clerk, copied into the entry-book by the entry-clerk, and recorded in record-book, and that the footings of the entry-book be made the basis of the semi-annual returns (of fees for recording instruments) to the Countyßoard. , , (5) That the number of folio-writers and of salaried employes in both departments be reduced. (6) That the free recording of abstracts be discon tinued, and that a charge of 5 cents per folio be made for recording the same; also, that cents per folio bo charged for certified copies thereof. (7) That access to tho record-vault be denied to all but the employe in charge thereof. (8) That the Abstract Department be let Co some competent parties under proper restrictions. (9) That employes be paid only at regular stated intervals, and that they sign vouchers for such pay ment at the time thereof. Ir regard to the charges made through the press by a discharged employe, and in regard to a certain mort gage from the Recorder, they would say that no blame attaches to that official in either case so far aa affecting his official duties and responsibilities.

The ax fell indiacritiloatoly, and many of ths Aldermen are in hot water because someof their con- BtituenU happened to be too onoa whoso service* could best bs dispensed with. The Board received nu merous calls on that account yesterday, and the Mayor seemed to be anxious that some particular persons should be retained. The employes who were dis charged were 3 street-foremen, 1 engineer, and 2 rodsmea of the Street Department; 2 engineers, 2 rodsmen, 1 draughtsman, and 2 dram-inspectors of the Sewerage Department; 2 draughtsmen and 2 clerks of toe Draughting Department; 3 clerks oftoe Special Assessment Department; and 2 cl«ksand l collector in too Water Departmimt The City Collector’s office baa been thinned of tts supernumeraries before this, and no further redaction in that office is looked for. The to-al number dis charged la 24. and toe saving to the city vrtil be no amaU item. The act has been contemplated for some time, and will doubtleea prove gratifying to a Urge number of tax-payers who have raised their voices upon tho subject. What arrangement baa been made fm* the discharge of the indebtedness to these men has not yet been sUwd, but they will probably U paid when too other employes of the city receive their re muneration, THE MAYOR. It is pleasant to observe the sauvity with which the Mayor covers himself when sn Alderman-elect is brought into his office and honored with a presenta tion. The soft aide of hia nature is immediately ex poeed to tho open gaze of the visitor and tfia Honor is Iniluetnoua in hla efforts to please. The respectable Alderman-elect have Sot made themselves f«y conapicnoia around tho “ Mayor's neat ” aa jet One or two have hung aronnd a good deal, putting out fMlars, perhaps. But it is a well-known fact that tho animosity existing be tween tho newly-elected ones and the preeant Chief of city rulers ia aa strong to-day as it hsa been. It te enfflclently strong at least to make the office of Mayor very uncomfortable for Mr. Colvin, who, with Hil dreth, Corcoran, Stout and O’Brien, haa, as it has been openly-talked over for the past day or two, b«n industriously at work to devise eome scheme that will keen tho Bing and Mayor Colvin where they are at Set It is eald that the heads of different Deparl ments hove been preparing statements of work or im provements during the present reign, which wiu ill bo embodied in one grand essay, which will bo read, or an attempt made to read it to the new Council, which will not listen to it.

Cincinnati, April 29.—IVhen the Chicago and Cincinnati Globa met this afternoon for their first championship game they were the only pro fessional clubs that had not suffered a defeat this year. When the White Stockings left the ground they had a clear lead over every other club in the League. The game which gave this start was an interesting one to look at, and 5,000 people were present to attest that fact. Every seat in the fine new grounds was oc cupied, and standing room was at a premium. The stands and arrangements are well planned, and the players’ field beautifnl to look upon, but bad for infielding, because of the rough ness of the transplanted sod. The new Bed Stockings, which were supposed to be of no special strength until they so cleverly captured the St. Louis Browns, were not very well thought of by the betting men, who demanded odds of about two to one. Not much money was|invested. The Bods lost the toss, and sent Kessler to open the ball, which he did by an out to Glenn. Booth, the next man, hit near Spalding, and that player touched the ball just enough to put it out of Anson’s way, but the latter gathered it finely, and sent it to MoVey rather out of line, the result being a muff, and muoh yelling from the crowd. Gonld hit hard and high, and got the ball over Addy’s head for two bases. Clack followed with a clean hit, and the bases were full. Jones came to the front nobly with a fair foul, which brought home two men amid the prolonged cheers of the crowd, who rose up as one man. and gave loud voice to their emotion. Snyder then brought in another run, making three for the inning, and two of them earned. To offset this, the Chicagos were able to score only one. that being made by Barnes, who went to first on called balls, got around to third on on overthrow by Fields, and came in on Hines two beae liner to loft centra. In the second inning. Peters muffed a hit by Fisher, but it did no barm, as Barnes and McVey doubled up ” Cherokee ” and Booth in the highest style of the art. In the following inning the Whites, after disposing of the first three Cincinnati strikers, added a score to their account by MoVey’s clipping two-baser, aided by a fine hit by Spalding. In the next inning, Barnes astonished everybody by dropping a high flv sent out by Sweaay. This gave an unearned run to the Beds, who were aided by clean hits by Fisher and Kessler. In the latter half of the same inning Peters led off with an out, and Glenn sent one out to Jones, which that in dividual ignominionsly muffed. The runner at once stole second, and was sent home by Barnes’ fine bit. Anson sacrificed himsolt tor the good of his side by a hit to right field, which gave Barnes a peg along, and he scored on hits by McVey and Hines, making two runs, and tioing the game. The lead was resumed bv the Beds in the next in ning, however, Gould getting in an unearned run off a muff by Hines, by which the latter hurt bis hand. This was, however, the last Cincinnati rnn of the game, the next four in nings proving blanks: but the Chicagos were no better off, and, when they had disposed of tlieir adversaries for the last inning, they found themselves with one to tie and two to win, and with a record of only one base hit in four innings. There were no drooping heads, however, and the noisy crowd stopped its clamor when Barnes opened play by a lightning liner past thud base, on which he took second by dint of fast running. The old heads now de termined to sacrifice everything to save the run, and Anson faced to tho right and deliberately made a right field out to let Barnes to third. HcVey followed the lead, and with the fast run ner on third and one out, hit a alow roller to right field- Gould fielded the hit neatly, but it needs hardly be said that he conld not catch Barnes, who mark ed his run and tied the game before Gould had well gotten the ball In hand. By trying to cut off Barnes be lost McVey. who got on first easi ly and stopped the yelling in the seats entirely. Hioea meant to help along matters, and struck a sham liner to third base, which was finely taken by Booth, but the latter, in attempting to catch McVey at first, made an overthrow, and sent tho runner to second. This bit of opportune luck seemed to pot new life into the game, and the way Fisher’s delivery suffered the next few minutes was a caution to amateurs. Spalding corked one over second base, stole second, and came home when Addy repeated tho hit. White drove a fine safe one to right centre, and sent Addy homo. Peters sent Jones to the end fence after a two-baser. Glenn bit safe, and Barnes coming to the bat a second time, scored another beauty to left centre, sending Glenn home, but getting left by Anson’s long fly to Jones, which ended the game, and left TUB FOLI.O ro SCORE omcAGO.

This game was by do means the perfection of fielding? when it included errors by Barnes, Hines and BloYey, but it was nevertheless one of the finest games ever played, as showing the power of sharp self-possessed ball-players to turn defeat into victory. The crafty play for the aide which saved Barnes* score, and with it the ninth inning, is a revelation to Cincinnati as well as to Chicago. Anson and SlcVoy should be credited with no little judgment, the former by his batting, which did not show in the score, and the latter for his bitting, which did. Barnes seems to have gotten into form, and pasted “Cherokee” Fisher’s throwing with an alacrity which was cheerful to behold. White and Scalding rather more than kept up their av erage. while Peters and Hines improved theirs. The character of the batting may be seen when it is said that twenty-one flies were taken by the Reds, and only nine •by the Whites. The Cincinnati team is an excellent one in the ontfiald. and fair at the bat. What their infield can do remains to be seen. The White Stockings hare changed the date of their second game here to Tuesday, instead of Wednesday. They play in Columbus Monday, Indiananohs Wednesday, and St. Louts Thursday and Saturday. THE WHITES AT LOUISVILLE. Courier-Journal, AvrH 28. After the third inning all hopes for Louisville were given up, and the game to a great many ceased to be interesting. The wild-throwing freak, indulged in by the Louisville players in one or two innings, but especially in the second, is unaccountable to us. The boys were evident ly on the “ ragged” yesterday, and we really don’t believe they con do so badly again. At all odds, we will forgive them this time, and they must promise that they will never do 10 any I mors In this eonnsotloo, wo moat remind oar I LouißTille people that base bell is a ver T bu e£Sln mme, and that a nine, although de feated & oterwbelmlng oddo in one game the Tere next day torn the tables, and conquer tbei7former riotore by odds _ jnet as. large. One single example in illuatratlon of this fact will suffice. When the Mutual Club, of Now York, Pj?^ l^& a t fc A ft ?h« eogo last season It suffered defeat at the DaQoa 3 the Chicago Club by ths terrible odds of U to 0, but notwithstanding this the ““VAH they completely turned the tables and BSje them competitors a severe drubbing. These defeats, then, wiU in the end have a bad effect neither on the players nor on the patrons of the game in this city. It will show the former their weak points, 1 and assuredly the warning oonld not come at a more appropriate time, when evm * series of defeats cannot do the harm alike senes might at the closing games of the season. It win also teach the spectators not to expect a victory each time for the home club, and when it does come it will be the more appreciated. Fulmer carried off the fielding honors for Louisville vesterday, and Chapman and Bechtel played the out-field very satisfaotonly, all three escaping without errors. After the first inning no fault could have been found with Gerhart s playlng-i Wo refrain from making individual mention of those making brilliant plays for Chicago: suffice it to say that “ where all did so well, it would seem invidious to particularize. Three base bite by White lead the batting score* with Anson a good second with two base hits. Bechtel’s two baser and Anson’s three baser, both in the ninth inning, were the prettiest and longest hits of the game, We are much pleased witn the gentlemanly conduct of the Chicago Club on the field; but Anson in the game yes terday, by standing near the third base and yell ing at the Chicago stokers batting in that di rection, “Bun on, he’ll throw it wild,” showed very poor judgment, and did what we believe will not bo tolerated by Manager Spalding in the future. ___ BT.

The crowds which waited for the score of yes terday’s game between the Whites and Beds afforded a pretty fair index of the interest taken in the national game, and particularly in the late of the Chicago boys. At Spalding s, Fojey s and Quinn’s the sidewalks were occupied by asear, expectant watchers, and the police had to clear the way eeveral times to make room for passers-by. The mania is not dying. It has only slept for a brief aeason. The Chicago amateurs are preparing for a bus? season of ba*e ball this summer. Up to date the games have been mostly for f *accice, and have attained to little more than the dignity of exhibitions. On Monday afternoon the Franklin and University Clubs will play their first match at the corner of Thirty-fifth street and South Park avenue, and a large audience of the lovers of the game will doubtless be on hand to witness the boys swing the willow. Both clubs are pretty fairly broken in, and soma interpating work may be expected. The Fairbanks and Franklin Clubs are nego tiating for the lease of the grounds at the cor ner of Laflin and Jackson streets, and hope to perfect arrangements this week. The grounds cover four blocks, and ore well suited for the purposes of a ball park, having a good, even surface, and being convenient to *he street-cars. They will be known as the Amateur Base-Ball Park. Should the clubs mentioned succeed in getting the grounds, of which there seems little doubt, the Northwestern Amateur Base-Ball Clubs will hold their tournament there during the coming summer. THE turf. THE NASHVILLE MEKTTIfQ. The first of the three meetings In which Illi nois turfmen take an especial interest begins at Nashville on Tuesday, and will last five days. The programme is as follows : Tuesday—Young America Stake, for 2-year-olda, X mile. O’Connor Stake, for3-year-olda, IX miles; purse, $250, mile beats. „ _ Wednesday—Nashville Cup, 3X miles. Dash, 1 mile, $l5O. Dash, IX miles, $l5O. _ Thursday— Cumberland Stake, for 3-year-olds, mile heats. Dash, IX miles, $l5O. Dash, IX miles, S3OO. Friday—Two-mile heats, S4OO, Mile heats, $250.

There will be some in terest in seeing how they will run. Of the 15 entries for the O’Connor Stakes, the best are Malmistie and Mediator. The former ran seven times last year, winning one race, the Howard Stakes, at New Orleans, beating Mediator, who carried 7 tbs penalty for winning the Slocomb Stakes, in which Malmistie was second. Media or won the Slocomb Stakes, but failed in his other three races. This year he has won the Pickwick Stakes, at New Orleans, beating such good colts as Harry Edwards and Harry HUL Grit last year won twice, a beaten purse at Nashville and the Murphy Stakes at Gallatin, when, carrying 90 tbs, he ran the mile in 1:44%. These are thebesfehoraea on paper. The ten entries for the Nashville Cup are Brakesman, Ozark, Fair Play, Highwayman. Wotherby. Ventilator, Damon, Aster Ute, Newborn, and Kilbum, none of which are of high class, except perhaps Ozark. Taking last year’s record, it will be seen that Brakesman won two of tan races, both at Nashville and neither important; Ozark ran twelve times, winning five, the Ocean Hotel Stakes at Long Branch, beating Aristides and Tom Ochiltree, the Bobbins Stake, beating Chesapeake, the Kenner at Saratoga (divided with Miloerj with St. Martin, Willie Burke, and Chesapeake in the field, and two purses at Wash ington, in one of which he ran 4 miles in 7:40, beating, with others, Nettie Norton. Fair Play ran 13 times and won three races, the best being at Lexington, where he beat Vicksburg, who won the first heat, Harry Felter, and two others in 1:44%, 1:44%, 1:44%, and al% miles dash at the fall meeting, where ne beat Vandolite and others in 2:39. Weatherby started fourteen times and won five races, none very remarkable, though for a short distance with a light weight up he is a fast trav eler. Aster Ute won a weU-contested mile-heat race last year. Kilborn started eighteen times and won eight races, none very remarkable. He won three races al New Orleans the week before last, showing a good turn of speed, bis best per formance being the defeat of Survivor in 1:45.

London, April 29.— The great international steeple obass at Saodown Park, to-day, was woa by Chimney Sweep. NOTES OK THE TUBE. The past week has been one of little note hen as regards the turf. Last Suodav Badd Dobli stopped at Dexter Park with his trotters, on the way to Philadelphia, bat left ths followim morning. The racing season proper begins to England this week, when the first of the great 3-veart old events, ths two thousand guineas, will be run for on Wednesday. On Priday comes the race for ths one thousand. Several horsemen have expressed themselvef in favor of a change in the usual programme foj ths second Dexter-Park meeting. This ebsngi contemplates having a three or five-mile net instead of the usual programme of •• mils heats, three in five.” A 1 Gage bas sold by auction his mare, Katie Pease, winner of the $25,000 4-mile heat race at San Francisco, the purchaser being James Mee, of Sau Francisco, and the price $3,850. Ibis is a very high price for a mare who can only bt need for breeding purposes. Katie Pease* is I years old, and was sired by Planet, her dam being Minnie Mansfield, by Glencoe. Mr. Pierre Lorillard’s stable of six horses is on its way West, at the bead being Parole, tbs beat 2-year-old of 1875 at the East, whojLa to try conclusions in a few days with the Western champion, Vagrant, for the Kentucky Derby. Parole is in excellent condition, but when the difference between the Eastern and Western climate is borne in mind, it will not surprise acute observers if the Lorillard coife should taki a cold or go amiss before the day of the race. Bodlne and Granville, the horses owned bj Mr. A. O. Goodrich, are in fine order, and will be shipped to Jackson, Mich., next Tuesday, where they will go through a course of trainini in preparation for the Jackson and Sagloat races. They will then return to Chicago. Bo dine will be taken through the Eastern circuit under Pete Johnson’s training, while Granvilk will show bis merits in the numerous races U come off at different times throughout the State Johnson also takes considerable stock in Gen. Grant, the Joliet stallion, and a certain mart Trbich he baa an idea will make a record wbei she gets a fair chance. He will have charge ol both daring the season. There is considerable feeling among Westers turfmen over the fact of the Nashville, Loxing too, and Louisville meetings coming so doss to gethor,—they fall in three successive weeks,-. and several well-known stables, including thosi of Gen. Bowett, of Illinois, will, it is said, oot be sent to Lonisyille in consequence. Then has been, however, more importance attached to the subject by snorting papers than it de serves. The quarrel is an old one, and will be revived yearly to the end of time. With three meetings—counting New Orleans, four—so close together, tbs possibilities of heavy tracks and the proba bility of a backward spring, there is great likeli hood of Western horses, though they will “ tin into condition ” and may make a good ehowipj? at the early meetings in the East, going amiii bv the time Long Branch and Saratoga capo on, as McGrath’s stable did last year; an* rsco*- nizing this, some of the Western horse-owners are only too glad to seize the pretext offered by the close coincidence of the three Kentucky and Tennessee meetings to go East and gain a week As things now go, it is impossible to put back one of the Kentucky meetings a week. The last begins May 15 and closes May 20. Omitting tie Baltimore and Washington meetings, there U but a fortnight before sport begins at Jeroai Park. This much, however, the Western meet ings might do : they might pack their six-U*j meetings into three days and so give the horses a rest between them. Th» American horsee In England ran twin last week. Mate, for the City and Snburbti Handicap, got awav in the laat six. and atayad there. This ia not bo very surprising, as the horse is described by the cable specials as hav ing been nervous and sweaty before the His nervousness in a large field was expected ta affect him. Bay Final, race for the GrsaJ Metropolitan, made a hhrd fight of it for 1 miles, when ho gave way. As ho was carfyiof Udpounds.it is probable that the weight to 4 upon him in the laat quarter of amile. was it 6 pounds more th&u would have bit to carry here in a race at weight for age, hut the other horses of the same age were receiriß| “lumps of weight" from him. Considering how high in flesh the Yankee horses were ia these races, and the fact that they were handicapped up to the very tea notch, their debut ia not such as may be called unsatisfactory. It is not probable that any of them will start again before the middle of June, when Preaknesa will positively ruh for the Ascot Cup, and Bay Final for the Alexandra Plate. The great race for which Preakness it intended is the Goodwood Cup, to be run late in July. An American horse, Starke, has ahead? landed it nice, and if Preaknees is as well thii year as he was at Saratoga laat year, when fci ran a dead heat for the Cup on the same day that Doncaster won the Goodwood Cup in Ed* gland, it will not be surprising if an Americas horse lands it again. THE TRIGGER. tent little shooting doing. But very little shooting has been done during the past week. The truth of the matter seesu to be that people are just at present mors in clined to board silver than to spend it in tbs pursuit of pleasure as embodied in shooting* This is the general spirit. While there are iota of pigeona in Chicago and vicinity, they are al lowed to enjoy a tranquil existence undisturbed by the invasion of the sportsman. To he sure, there are some exceptions to the prevailing de sire to stay at home and wait for better times. People who have purses wide and deep and with plenty of good substantial wealth to fill them out, have given up the quiet of the .citytogs into the country and bring down snipe. But* as a rule, shooting matters are unusually dalu There was a little scratch race at Dexter P*» during the last week, in which a few pigeon* and snow-birua were sacrificed, but outaide of this nothing has occurred daring the week of any note.
