Visit or tbc Nc\t Board of Supervisors— Wilt TbPf **MTt Yesterday Ihe County Board of Supermen made tbclr acnnal visit of Inspection to tbe County Poor House, which U located in tbe town of Jefi eraon, twelve miles northeast of tbe Court House. The day was a remarkable one for tbe fourth day of winter, mild and anno*. »ud though the roads were In a fearfully «?Jlf *“£»• U.c (rip or two boom vr..

The main building Is a substantial brick structure of three stories and basement, to which have been attached long two-story vrmpt of wood, so tl at the whole building is capable of accommodating probably five hundred Inmates. Adjacent are various smaller structures—a small ttvo-etory bonding, occupied principally by uld men, the baking nonsc. work honsc, broonuacto ry, small-pox bouse, and barns, aid other appnr leuauccs of a lanre tatm. Externally the appear ance of the establishment Is that of a great com fortable country hotel. We step within and the impression changes. From the plainly furnished reception room wc go at once into the midst or the unhappy panpers, the aged, the or; bans, the sick, the insane—the very Imperson ations of want, disease and sorrow, who have sought or been forced to accept witbiu thesewalb the core ard shelter which the great .hurrying. 00l- Bldc world would not give them, to make hero their dreary home, to take here, many of them, their last weary look on life. Wo look first Icto the women's apartments. Hero arc the aged females and those in middle lift*, whose husbands and sons are dead or have basclv deserted them; and so, helpless and forsa ken, these once happy wives and mothers linger out their aimless lives. Some elt silently In the cut ncr, seeing not the strangers, for the light has gone from their eyes; some are able to sew or knit, aud thus have employment (or their fingers; s few can read, and so can ond some food for their mental hunger. Next we enter the Juvenile apartments, where some twenty children, from a dozen days to a* many years of age, arc cared for bv motherly looking women; and here in the unthinking happiness of childhood we see the only cheerful faces of the whole great com munity. These llule ones, children oi want or of shame, wear, many of them, bright and intelli gent faces, and may, in their after years, forget and overcome the sad prestige of tbcir early days. One little bov there was stone blind, with no Irhndsor relations in the world, who has bat A hopeless lot before lam. Too tick men's wards are next shown. Here lies a nan with hollow eyes and emaciated form, whom consumption will soon kindly relieve; bore, another drawn up and tortnred by ihenmalism; here, one dcceitly dressed, with a look of respectability, who la much of the time insane, bat quiet and bat ml ess; and so through tbc catalogue of ills and woes. Kot tor distant are the sick women, victims 100 of consumption, rheumatism, fever and other frequent and often hopeless infirmities. N*o sadder sight can he found than that of an aged woman, who has been a happy wife and mother, lying here alone in bet hard cot, friend* less and hopeless, slowly hut surely parsing over the road from which there is no return. One old lady, sixty-six years of age, who had been in the bouse two years and is now near the point of death, la to hare a son keeping a saloon on Clark street, and in comfortable clrcum* fiancee. Another bed-ridden old dame of sixty* tlx rears wears ont the long hoars with thoughts cf a son not tax away who is living amid abundance, while she Is fed by the cold hand of public charity. Such filial ingratitude Is almost too great for ueilcf. The Insane Department exhibits another phase of sorrow and misfortune. Within strongly haired cells or, when the symptoms are mild, in balls adjoining, seventy-eight unfortunates are now confined, from whom the light of reason has fled. Here ail decrees of insanity are manifested. Some sit upon the floor or walk alone, muttering to themselves or bursting into unmeaning laughter as some strange fancy darts cm oss their disordered brains. Some arc sullen and refuse to be approached; some axe wildly tall.alive and sc'ze the visitor by tbc baud and tell him the story of their Imagined troubles. One Unman girl Implores each visitor intake her out, haying continually “ I be not crazy,*’ “ I he not crazy.” Another .called “Bridgeport,” who gives her name as Hate Uervcy, biull of wild gayety. “I’m a statue,” says she; “I'm the month of Way, the queen of May;’' “I’ve been through hell and I don't want to go again.” An excited woman says her nameTa MaryMcHtaw. “Me friends live In Ireland and me father has a great house and a grand estate. Won't you sec him and tell him to take me out t” A Utile man with cheerful look sing? “ We'll go home again In the morning.” hut he docs not know, poor fellow, that he has found his final home.

Uther forme and expressions of In faulty are exhibited, as varied as the characters of the patient?, forming sad and yet interesting sub jects for study. In a two-story building west of the main edifice seventy male paupers, mostly old men. lodge. Hie low beds lie close together along tbc walls and on these and on tndc benches they lie or ait, antidote the time away, save when they are inter rupted at the nme of meals or to attend to some trifling employment about tbc building. A few leitamcnts and papers are seen, hut little Intel- Isciual curiosity Is left to prompt to their read ing. Some of them arc intelligent looking men, who have apparently seen prosperous days.bul are now crushed and broken by the band of adversity. A tew are healthy, hearty fellows, who, too lazy or 100 weak-hearted to earn their own bread, come here ue the winter begins and hang about tbc stoves until tbc summers sun drives them forth to pick up an unwilling sustenance again. Most of tbc inmates of the house, however, are real paupers, broken down in spirits and fortune, sick, friendless or old, and genuine subjects for the deepest pity. The PoorHon*e and its appurtenances appeared yesterday In an excellent state of cleanliness aud order, and the Warden. Mr. M. L. Pmney, with his assistants, seem to attend faithfully to their unpleasant duties. There are at present 804 in nin.ct-. *eveniy-.*lght of whom ore insane. Last winter there were at one time 450.

A Oilcmma—Vacation Of Contracts. We published yesterday au abstract or the bids opened in tbe office of the Board of Public Works fortbe completion of the work on sections 17 to 37, Inclusive, ol the Illinois & Michigan Canal. Eleven bids were opened, most of them for all the sections ; one or two for only a portion. The binding was what may be called “wild," the figures varying widely, ranging from 51 cents to per conic yard for earth excavation, and from gi.Mto #5.50 (or tbe stone excavation. Ihe contract price of Fox, Howard & Walker was tblrty-tnrce cents for earth and two dollars for stone. Thathrm was one of tbe bid acre on the re-submlsslon of tbe work, tnetr esti mates ranging at about sevcnly-lhrce cents and three dollars and a halt, or folly twice the amount of tbelr first contract. It i£ rumored that the Commlsslonera do not know what to do with the subject; they have ah elephant of decidedly elephantine magnitude on Ihdr bonds, or perhaps wo might call It au ana conda— m view of the tortnons character of the canal—on anaconda which threatens to swallow np the wealth 'of tbe State, to consume many long years of time, and may yet engnlpn the Commissioners themselves in its vast maw, as the former contractors say they themselves have been wbat the French wonld tern enaloutt. The lowest of the recently offered bids calls for about a million of dollars more than the original contract price, and there Is no security that even that would not be found too little. as the repudiation of contracts with tho city Is now fashionable. They do not know bnt the canal may tnrn Into a quicksand which will absorb all , the money now appropriated, and necessitate tho making of still other appropriations for US com pletion. _ They doni know wbat to do. To let the con tract to the present lowest bidder would be dan- . gCTons. Indeed they think unwise, as the bids ate evldcntlv wild, and the work conld be done at I much less than the lowest- 11 la rumored »ba» the I proposition has been broached to make It a city undertaking, at least fora while, till it could be seen what ibo actual cost ie.wnd then to take those figures as the basis of a contract with some one who w onld bo willing to make the bargain. Of coarse no one knows as yet wbat will be the course taken. . . . , The publican; a little curious to know why the contract with Messrs. Fox, Howard & Walker was not insisted on. Very many Inquiries of this tenor were addressed tons yesterday. We are enable to answer, and will be glad if any one will throw light on the subject Ihe contractors gave bonds lor the faithful performance of their contract, said bonds being represented as sufliclcnt to Insure the city against loss. Why was the contract vacated ? We would not insinuate that there was any Im pioper reason; wedonot think It probable; bnt there evidently was a reason, and it most have been a strung one. The people, an extra multou of whose money is now imperilled, think they baveanebt toknow. Will the Board of Canal Commissioners please explain? As before hinted, the vacation of contracts, or rather their attempted vacation, is crowing alto gclher too fashionable. Now it Is IbciAueTnn* nel, then the Canal. Bye and bye It will be some 6 tied contractor, and then, perhaps, some city official who, having contracted to serve tbe city for a certain term at a certain rate, will “strike,' and withdraw bis valuable services unless extra ■ compensation be allowed.
