Officer Philip Ullicli quietly arrested Bnger— the prisoner offering no resistance—and con veyed him to jail, there to await the action of the Grand Jury, which meets on the I4th instant. Your correspondent called at noon to-day toscc the suffering woman and leaxn what he could hi relation to this horrible butch* erv. Mrs. Burger, through an interpreter— she being a German—made the following statements: Only the night before, Bulger ordered her off to bed, and taking bis own bed, placed 11 In tho saloon below. She, thinking it strange In him to give such an order, concluded to watch. &he shortly beard the click of a cun. aud, listening more closely, hear her huabsml stealthily ap proaching hfcr room. Believing her life in danger, on account of his off-repeated tin cats, she was forced to jump from the second story window to the sidewalk and mu to a neighbor's for protection. Seeins; him 1» avc the saloon In the morning, she took advantage of his absence to go to the boose, to procure some clothes and sec her children, of which she has four. But before she could leave the bouse, Burger bod returned, and, seeing his wife, deliberately took aim, with out any provocation whatever, and shot her as above described, when she was at a dis tance of not more than ten feet. I learn further from Mrs Burger that at tbo time of this occurrence, she was msienie, and that her husband frequently, while she was in this condition, kicked, struck and knock - cd her over, and that bj this brutal treat ment of knocking, pounding and beating, he had destroyed two children for her, while she was in this condition previously. Mrs. B. is a member of the German Lutheran Chr ‘ 'who and highly spoken of bj t! know her.

Notwithstanding the heavy expenditures made by the State during the existence of the rehcllior, in placing her quota in the field, and the heavy and constant draiu up on her productive industry, the State debt has been gradually diminished—more rapidly, even, than toe anticipations ot the most sanguine. On the first of December. IS*<o, the entire bunded debt of the state amounted to £11',277,161.8C; which debt was increased .f:i,ISU.UX) by the nor loan of Jnly. 1551. making In the aggregate £12,327,101.06. On the first of December, IdCO, the entire debt amounted to only £&,uiS*232.2l* and there Is now In tbe 1 rcasury to be applied on payment on th; first of January, 1M37: Stare Debt Fund, £751,561.49, Illinois Central Railroad Fund. I‘-1,652 16, to which may be added £221,571.03, the estimated amount ot'the seven per cent of the arose camlngs of the Illinois Central Railroad, ue for the six months ending Oct oner St, 1656, which, when paid, will reduce the State debt to £7,G£6,9U7.51. The board of trustees of the canal have declared another dividend of rive per cent on (he registered canal bonds, payable January 2, 1507, amonnlingto 1123,106.06, which will reduce the entire bonded debt to £7,527,740.63. since the commencement of trie war the State has not only paid, od the bonded debt. £2,050,1110' —a sum equal to the entire war loan, and £971,50.63, the direct tax levied on tne State by tbe Lulled Stales—but haa paid in addition, on that dent as it existed at tbe breaking out of the n hellion, j9ti3,4WUM; mak lug the aggregate pai l on tbe State debt fi.lOT.-I’JO.W; direct tax, f9T4,:«M71; total, f5,9i?,0b0.57.

From the synopsis of the Revenue Fund, it will be seen that the whole amount received on ac count of revenue from all sources. Including the amount on band December 1, 1501, wai £1,355,1)52.09—0f which turn £731,371.07 only were ileuved from direct taxation: and that during that tune the warrants paid on account of revenue amounted to SI,2S6*C2S.IS being £M6,235.1l In ex cess of tccetpls proper for revenue—to which ex cess should be added £25,000, a deficit by clerical error lo the appropriation of the •• Illinois Mate hospital for the Insane,” for the yean lrds and IMG. Admitting that the present Legislature win he only equally generous with toe last, in making appropriations for the gcneial Interests and char itable necessities of the Stale, there will be a de ficit of (estimated) t LSO.WXI in that fand November tat, ifciis, unless some adequate provision is made for its increase. With the rival wealth and endless resources of onr Sate, toe tireless energy ai.d abundant liber ality of the people, the time should n- vet come v Lcn the Treasury Is not able to respond to every legitimate demand. To place the State in such a desirable position, ana thus establish and sn«rain the local credit ot the State, la an object worthy of your attention. The question then arises, how cun this desider atum bo attained? To that end 1 would recom mend the enactment of a law creating a State Board of Equalization of Assessments, with powers fhll and well defined, not only to equalize the assessments of real and personal estate be tween the several counties of the State, hut to so increase (or necessary) the segregate amount of the valuation m the State, that the present iata of taxation will provide a fond snffi chm to meet at least all the ordinary current ex penses of the Government. if it should he deemed inadvisable to so In crease the aggregate of the valuation, as such in crease would correspondingly increase the Slate Debt Fund, (the rate of the tax for which it fixed in the Constitution,) permanent rellcl can only he found by an increased rate of taxation for revenue purposes. But as a fair and just valuation, or an increase of the rate of taxation, cannot be available for the increase «*f revenue until 1665, tor au immedi ate partial icllif, I would suggest that provision be made by law for the payment of the Interest on the School, College and Seminary Fund, amounting to about ti6,oott, out of the Interest Fund, to which it is propc»->- chargeable, instead of the Revenue Fncc : ajo for a transfer or loan of *34.000 of the seeming earplaa Interest Fund to the revenue. The Fund, on the first , day of December. .oJd. amounted to K55.M9.47. Of this amount. fiAOOO will be required to pay the interest maturing in January, 1917. Including piemlum on coin : and estimated fS.OOO to pay tbo past doe Interest that may he calted for at the Treasury prior to the first day ot July, !>r>7: leav tag an idle surplus in the Treasury of over *3S,OCO, which cannot he used without legisla tive action. No Inconvenience In the fniore pay ment of Interest can arise from such transfer. Under existing laws any deficiency in the Interest Fund can be enpplled from other funds lu the Tl lMb?totcrest on the School. College and Sem inary Fm d should be made chargeable to the In terest Fund, and tSUO.OOO be irsmsterrrd iromthal tund to the revenue, there would suit be a sur plus In the Interest fund of over f SUX-0. Afivr the payment of the interest due in .Tern ary, iPCstbere remained in the Treasury $i 19.150.5 X In coin, as per my report to the last Legislature, which amount was by that Legislature, under act of Fcbtnary 16, ISC. set apart or appropriated for tho payment of the in terest on the sterling bonds of tho Stale, payable in London. The amount then on hand sufficed to rav such Interest lu July. 1565, aud January, Is<yi, I. a'ving a small balance.

Hallway Station Burned- by Form mortgagors. [From the Milwaukee Sentinel, January 5.] i€OSt,CC AVc learn from a gentleman just from Schlcieingervllle, a station on the old La- CroM-e Railroad, about twenty-eight miles from Ibis city, that on Thursday night the railway station bouse there was destroyed by Incendiaries. A number of freight cars belonging to the Milwaukee & St. rani Rail way Ootijpany, and a quantity of valuable freight were also destroyed. Ko effort was uiaoc to extinguish the lire. Tbe track.was also torn up in various places, and obstruc tions placed upon It to binder tbe passage of the trains or throw them from the track. Fortunately no serious destruction of prop erty or life resulted, although scores of lives might Lave been lost by the villainy. It is said that tnc perpetrators of the out rage were a parly of the class known as farm mortgagors, who have been committing other lawless depredations upon tbe property of the company in tbe vicinity. Tbe perpe trators, It is said, arc well known to tbe peo ple in tSchleUingcrvillc, bat all efforts to make them disclose their names have been unavailing. Meantime the Superintendent has ordered all trains to pass this station w ithout slacking speed, unless obliged to do s-o by obstructions placed upon toe track, until the criminals arc apprehended and brought to punishment. The company is also using other means of coming at the in cendiaries, which we trust will be successful. $331 06 743.45 SQj.ec |1,U3.53 $27,429.91 Proponed Public Remonstrance atralnst Use ACock Klvcr Improvement, Tiic recent Convention held at Rock Island has developed the fact, that an ell'ort Is be ing made lu turn the current of opinion lu favor ol the canal project from LaSalle to Hoik Island, with a feeder from Rock River at Dixon.

A DlTOrce and its Sequel-A Startling Allegation bj a Repudiated Wife. Ira Merritt, late one of the proprietors of the Metropolitan Hotel in this city, was on Friday last sued by John Bonham, his brother-in-law, in an action lor slander, the damages claimed being S3,UKI. The slander alleged Is a statement of Mrs. Merritt, made under Intimidation by her husband, to the effect that a child of Mrs. M., born in wedlock, was the progeny of theplalniU, who, to cover his guilt, procured a marriage between the parties, which has since been annulled oy a divorce. 1 be lata wife of the defendant, Anna C. Merritt, makes a statement or alleged (acts In regard to her connection with ilerriu, whicn, if true, prove the said Merritt to be 'title short of a monster In human shape. Her statement is substantially as follows: “That a little over two years ago, aad while llviig with the said John Dunham (her brother- In-law), in the city of Minneapolis, Minn., sbe became acquainted with Ira Merritt, then and there residing, which acquaintance dually result ed In an CLgagcxnenr tor marriage. For some reason, however, this was broken ottj and for nearly two yeais thereafter they were as strangers to each o Ler. Bm at the end of this time they •gain became intimate, and In an indiscreet mo ment, under promise of marriage, she gave hi™ the Strongest proof ol her love for him In the sac rifice other virtue. About four months after this, on the S&th of January. Iswi, they were married, and Merritt, who previous to this bad led a Ute ol dissipation, sukmsly promised to change his course, and signalized his promise by becoming a partifcrlniherviculett House of that cliy. For .jpgi-weeks after marriage, he remained sober, bat .tierrtiler was again frequently intoxicated. Some months subsequently duuu Buld.viu, Che present proprietor of the Metropolitan Hotel in this dty, took charge ol that establishment, and ottered Ira Merritt an interest in the concern. The ojerwa« accepted, and on the Stub of Jnse. accompanied byhiawifc, they left Minneapolis for this city. Mrs. JJcrrls, at this time,was within a few days of confinement, end on reading Portage City, Wis consin, she could sustain her condition no longer, and at a hole) in that city she gave birth to a fe male child. Her hnsbaud, a day or two alter, came on to Chicago, but auout ten days after re lumed to Portage City to bring on lus wife, who bad snfficiently recovered. Hitherto hi? conduct lomu da her had been none of the best, but now, according (n her statement, it became perfectly fletdifih. Sbe alleges that on his anir.l be threat ened lo kill (ho child, aud poison her; that she was told by her at : tcndicgpbyrlctan that Metrilt had asked him for a quantity of poison, with which to put an end to Ihc czitlencc olbis wife, child and himself. More than this. He, on pain of death, extracted a premise from her that she would never assert the child to be his own, nut the illegitimate offspring of John Dunham, her brother-in-law. She natur ally recoiled trom each a promise, but, for the sake ol tier own life uxd that of her child, -he at last consulted to the imposition. Under these dicnnietanceethey strived in Chicago, a. d Merritt tool, chaise of the hotel.

He told her to go to the room, but said he would follow, and if he Discovered Mr. Dunham andhcrcon verwug together, be would kill her. Scarcely knowing what to do under *nch threatening cir cumstances, she hid herself In the room ot one ot the lady boaidcis fur several hours, ami until tier hioihci-inOaw had departed.

TTUat IVas Done in a Leisure Hoar- Peculiar Case as Stated by a Pecu liar Plaintiff— A Fell Swoop Among Magnates Prayed For. For fomt fifteen months past an elderly man haa Lannted ih* United States Court lo tuis city, who has exhibited peculiarities which have drawn the attention ol the members of the bar, as well as probably the majority of those others whose ba-i- ness has called them Into ihc precincts of the for tun. An investigation of the co«s shows itaat he Is an exemplification of the peculiarities exhibited by Charles Dickens in his charatler given to Mis* flue. He bus no canary birds to feed, nor is he especially given to taking caicot orphan*; bnt ho has a law eoit, or bad one, and lie result is a constant yearning to bo in the presence ol the bench and bar, wbicn has in duced him to traveno the State, first from Henry County to the Supreme Court, to vh!ch tribunal he devoted two rears of bis existence, and thence to tin. Vtittd States Commissioner's office lu tbU cUy. whence now be is found lu the Circa.t Coorl of lue United States bclorc the Grand Jury. ll is known to our readers that the Grand Jury of the Circuit Court of the United Slates is now Intcseion. On Saturday last, as is usual iu our ccuit*. there «aa lit lie or nnbuaicesa to be done, and 1 avieg a spare hour it was thought proper to spend It lu light entertainment, air. K. J. Bonner, of Galva, Ucnrv County. Illinois, the parry to whom we have referred, bad lorn; sought to meet the Grand Jury. Each officer of the Untied States Courts In this city had in turn been button holed with a view to his intro* oniliun to tbat Judicial body, ami now lu ati hour cflcuurc It was concluded mat be should Lave on opportunity of reciting hie grievances. Mr. Bon* ncr, wbcn’be came before the Grand Jury, had a peculiar appearance, 'the feu bat he wor«4\satmouniluc a nubia, which was wound carefully around hla head, was as neatly arranged as any old laoy before a mirror could have fixed tU ilia shirt was pethaps a mile dirty—** while for brown, bat brown lor white”—was open so as *o expose his breast. Ills under coat was more 1 suitable lor the warm days of September than for the present season; it was of brown Lolland. Us ovc.coat was writ wt.ru. and bis beard and fscc I indicated a'growth of the hirsute appendage* | forbidding the idea ol the pre.-enceof a harbors razor within seme weeks. The peculiarities of I the man. however, were not in hla dress, in his I übehavex, condition, or in nia light clothing; but , they eibtblred themselves In the vast aecutonla* I Uon ofpapers, which had thea«pcctof legal doc* ! umcnis. protruding from every pocket, and from , almost every pore. . . _ _ „ . I litis tndiviuua! desired that ei-Jndgcs Caton 1 and Beckwith, of the supreme Court, and the i three present Judges, the Circuit Court Clerk of | Henry Courtv, I'blllp A. Uoyne, Chief Justice John M. Wilsrn. of the Superior Court of Chica- i go, Arthur W. Windett, a lawyer of this city, Per- I Wins Base* late United States District Attorney, and Judge Drummond, of the United states i Coon, should be immediately Indicted as mall ! robbers. It may be presumed that this cctnleman u | klichtly riven to monomania. The facts of this 1 case as they exist are. that In 1.*57 be was the part cwuc% by possession, of four sections of land in I and adjacent to Henry County, in this State. A 1 suit of ejectment was brought as to one parcel of the property, and after some I irt.iH*-;!* ft decision was gives in the Circuit’ Court of the county adverse to bis interest. The loss of the property arected him apparently to the extent of car.sicg him to guard mote carcfr.Uythemcnnshchadlellon hand. Sud cenlv he launched out to pel a reversal ol the de* dstor, declaring the technicality of the law re carcinp bonds and appeals to be inventions ol the IjcvQ Be left home and came to Chicago. v\ bile here, on the IStb of August, 1553, he was arrested, ficedandsenito tae Bridewell as an insane va friends interceded, and he was released. Be then returned to Ottawa and prosecuted Ills snit in Us own peculiar mamer bclore the Su preme Court. Hl* first proceeding was to call a public meeting for the purpose of deposing the ‘‘Upreoc Court Judges. Bb next was to haunt the Conn until Judge Caton, (opacity him, gave him a scaled letter to ihe Cleikot the Circuit Court of his (Henry) coumv, sacccstmg that Mr. Bonner was **on ofLismlnd? In the meantime a letter was sent to the Clerk oi the Circuit Court stating the facts, so that when Mr. Bonner arrived, supposing he tad an order reversing the decbionol the Court, he was sent home to hi? daughter, much incensed, declaring that the malls bad been robbed, and that the order had been abstracted from the uuit bag. In Mr. Bonner nude hi? appearance again m Chicago. Be was then w*HI dressed, bore the evidences of having been well cared for, bat •veined to have concealed a gnawing anxiety. His first visit was to Perkins Boss, Eao., Dietrict Attorney. By bU recommendation ne waited upon Commissioner Uoyne, before whom he laid hi* complaint. lids complaint was given in so calm a manner, and in such proper words that the warrant was written for the arrest of the Clerk of the Circuit Court, but before It was uaoed. it appeared in conversation that from Governor down, including all the gentlemen wc have men tioned, all were guilty of the same o(Fence, In the view- of Mr. Cornier. Some suspicion as to the sanity of the mas now arose, and he was net off by the statement tbat the Judges cf the Supreme Court being • now In session at Springfield, they were beyond the ju risdiction oltbU court, from that time to Die present Mr. Bonner has been daily in court pre paring documents, which have been scut to all the Lighofflcials ol the Government. One, to Secre tary Stanton. *«» presented to the Grand Jury vo’terdav. In this be redtos his grievance?, for cetllnz always the original the trouble, stating that be its persecuted because be had beta a frierd cl tie late Senator Douglas. One to Mr. Reward avowed his adhesion to the policy cf Mr. Johnson, (a clear prool of his Insanity;) a, third to General Giant, requested (hat the armts* of the United StaVrs might b* tnreed out to protect the remaining property of the applicant in Qenry County, from the Incursion of the Liiuoin gaetii- Is?, But tot only bad these communica tion? been lent to the representatives ot our Governm* nt but Queen Victoria had been favoted with 8 letter, in which I: wa? stated that the applicant occupied a peculiar position. By the constitution of Illinois ha ftnnd himself a citizen of ibia Slate, he haviag been here before the had never forsworn hU alle giance to his beloved Queen, and m cer distress be would advise her of a way to clear off the claims of Ihe Fared State* regarding the Alabama piracies. Be had understood that the United States claimed tiou,ivo,w. Be tad »wv ewe than to be.leye that Andrew Johnson would ever make such a de mand, and he believed that Andrew Johnson bad more sense than to ever make it; bat ho w*s'will ing, as a citizen- both of Great Britain and of 11- lisola, to save bloodshed, and step in as an arbi trator. He had written to Washing ton and requested the President ro withdraw the claim, and to Mr. Seward de mandin'; Mm to apologize on his Usees for press ing tt> and he intended 10 recommend to Congress lo pass a rote of thank* to Qneen Victoria and Napoleon the Third for the strict manner In watch they observed the neu'ralitv laws. But if tblsSbocidnotbedcno.be would propose that the Government ebonla at once preier a claim agaiiat the United States few damages unto him. Ilia damages consisted in the robbery of the mall heretofore referred 10, “dousing” him in the shower-bath of the Bridewell, and the wantol alacrity in the officers iu not issuing the warrant for arresting the mail robbers previously spoken or. The particular reason of the exhibi tion of all these papers was to pro cure the indictment of the- parties wc have named, the clerk of the Court, and the Judge*, and thccx-Jadges of the Supreme Goan, as moll robbers, the others named, on the ground that tbev bad been bribed to prevent the prosecu tion of the criminal salt against the Cleik and Jcdges and to inclnde ex-Govemor Yales and Governor Oglesby under a charge of slander. In bavins said that be was crazy. The investigation bas not yet closed, bat at the next session If the Grand Ju»y be willing lo bear any more of the statement, wc are to leam bow tee United States became indebted in the large amount slated. The appropriation of the means Las already been made. Mr. Bonner has decided, when bis claim is paid, to establish in Chicago, a daily newspaper, which is to advocate the rights of unfortunate and disappointed liti gants. Even the editor of the Journal has been selected, • in the mind of Mr. B. The claimant suggested on Saturday to the Grand Jury that unless bis persecutors were indicted, he wonlo at ocro proceed to Washington and lay ibo matter before The (jutted States su preme Court, nnd in view of (hr contingency of a want cl jurisdiction being decided lo twin this Grand Jury, a memorial has been prepared for transmission to Chief Justice Chase. Zouave Capets— I Tub Death of Matos ITor irm.—The ouginal members of the United Stales Zouave Club, who joined in Ihe Eastern excur sion of the company In held a reunion on Friday evening, a’ the office ol General John B Turchln. It wilt be remembered that the late Colonel Ellsworth was Capwin of this company at the time of the trip, and he designed a gold medal to be wont by each of the members who pcilicipatid in It. The mcclng was held for the purpose of forming the “Champion United Suit* Zocave Cadet Club,” to meet once a year. The lolloping odicers were elected: U. D. Ltfiln, Esq., President; J. It. Havden, Esq.. First Vice President; E. B Knox, E-q., Second Vice President; Sidney P. Walter, Esq., Secretary ana Treasurer. The beautiful flag which was presented to Ihe Company In 18t9, by the Illinois Stale Agricultu ral Society, is kept tn tbeposs-sslon of the Club, and is to become the properly of the last sur viving member. The following resolutions upon the death of Brevet Major Charles A. Hosmcr were presented and unaiiimonsly adopted: Sfottrd, That the Ceiled States Zouave Cadets have beard, with deep and nnfelgn-d sorrow, of the death of one ot lie members, Breve: Major Charles A. Hosnrer, United State* Army, at S:. i’aol, Minnesota. lit toll <d % 1 bat by his death the Cadet* have lost one vt their hot members, and hla acquaintance* a dear and valued frieco. £t*tlrtd, That a copy of these resolutions be entered upon the records of l! is organlzalloi', and that tbe Secretory be directed to forward a copy ot ibem lo his parents -Mrs O.

Tnc ftmcial ceremonies await the anivnl of absent members of the family, who have been tele graphed for. livsxiKo Orr the Thack.—A very actions aa noyancc and detention la cause-.! to travellers on the street cars by the frequent cases of cars run* r.lcg off the track on all the lines. Two out of three of the care on Randolph street generally manage to Jump off near Hoisted street, the double curve made by the swing around the wide space occupied by the old bay-market and by Mil waukee avenue making this place perhaps more difficult to pats than any other in the city. Thu great reason of these frequent occurrences seems to be that the rail is not sufficiently high to keep the wheel in place. Abont two years and a half ico tbe Common Council, on rccommcndadoi ff tbe Board of Public Works, ordered a new ral to be thereafter laid down, having a lower tongue, with the tow more rounded, than those formerly used. In tno Eastern cities a very high, sqnare topped rail la nsed, to the great damage of ordi nary vehicles, whose wheels arctwisted and broken in attempting to tnm on and oQ them. The inten tion in aooptieg the rail now used, to a grew ex tent, was to obviate this difficulty. giving the ve hicles also a wide tlaugc upon which to run. This accommodates them, tomewhat at (bo expense of tbe street railways, and ii a compiomlao rail could be discovered, combining the advantages and discerning tbo disadvantages of tbe two ex tremes mcntloiß d.bigb enough to keep tbe car* on. and not so high as to break the wheels, it would beverv acceptable. It is frequently difficult to steer clear of Scylla without running Into Cbarvbdie, but it is nevertheless Important to try to do*so. and the attention of our ingenious me chanics is Invited to this subject.
