The bill to authenticate the incorporation of (he Western Union Railroad Company, and Its consolidation with the Racine ft Mississippi Rail' mad, now known as the Western Union R. R.

This bill provides that all acts and agreements of con rolldatinn hereafter made and entered Into bo* Irrecn the Western Union Railroad Company of Illinois, and the Western Union Railroad Com* oat.y of Wisconsin, and also between the Western Colon Railroad Company and the Northern Illinois Railroad Company ot Illinois, arc fully rallDcd and conferred; j>rocidsd that this act shall not be construed to street or im* pair any right or franchise now belonging to the llactno ft Mississippi Railroad.

Its friends arc amble to coant up a sure majority m IU favor. The chief objections to the bill are that It embraces 100 maty objects; that the cost of the Improvements are not sufficiently determined or ascertained. The members from the west* cm and southern portions of the State strenuously object to the appropriation of money for the Dock River Improvement, contend lug that It Is local and not Slate In Its character, and that bat half a dozen counties are interested in the Improvement. Another objection Is that no estimates of the cost of Improving It Is befote the House or any reliable Fuiveys or data of any Dtind. It is contended hat five or alx million may be sunk before tbo Dock River can be rendered navigable for steam boats, as numerous dims and locks will bo re quired on account of the Urge falls In that stream. Other members contend that If the State shall improve Rock River, It ought also lo improve the Fox, the Kaskaskia, tbc Kanka kee and other streams. Some of tbc Egyptian mcu.bcrs argue that the State should render aid In constructing a projected railroad from Cairo to SLLoals, and another from Cairo to Vincennes, and that Ibcir section of country Is as much entitled to aid for (belt local public works os (be people of the Rock River country. A considerable opposition Is beginning lo de- vclop itsolt against andcrtakinp to construct the projected canal from Dcotcpln to Keek Island, until the Improvement of the Illinois Klverand the enlargement of the Illinois Canal are first completed. The great cost of tho Rock Island Canal and Feeder, and the limited Illinois (err!- lory which it would benefit, are arced against It* comtractton. How far ill these objections may afret the final vole, remains to bo teen; bat odo thing 1» certain, If tbs blit falls It will be inconsequence of being loaded wl»h whit are railed local project*. There appear* to bo no denial of ibe necessity that ex* hts for Improving tbe navigation of ; he Illinois Hirer, acd of deepening and widening the Illinois Canal, thereby connecting tbe sy»Um of Mississippi Klvcr navigation with the Great I akes. This Is conceded on all sides to be a btate work of the great* eat Importance, and free from all objections of a more local nature. Every cent expended In Improving tbe Illinois Hirer and canal helps tolncictie the'revenues derived from tolls. A couple of million* ;cf dollars wonld msko the Hlvvr nrvlcablc lor steamboats and other trail drawing six feet of water for nine in tbe ,yrar, thereby quadrupling the'commercu of both canal and river. A few million* more would suffice to deepen and enlarge tbe canal to steamboat navigation, or for canal boats and barges moved by steam toga. When this Is accomplished, the receipts from tolls would be millions per annum, and the question of railroad freights would be settled forever, Inde pendent of al! quibbles about ibe vested riebts of monopolies If the btate makes tbe 1m provcmsnt of the Illinois River and canal, tt will not hesitate to embark In me construction of a canal to connect with tbe Mississippi at Rock Island. It is hoped that both workamay be undertaken at once, bat the present prospects are net as brilliant as eonld be desired bytaclr fries ds. THE STATE LEGISLATURES. 1 HANOI*.

Garibaldi on tbo Despotism of Tnrkoy— The Duty of Knglaud, France and Ruaaiß, Garibaldi baa written Ibe following letter on tbc Eastern question, which Is again agi tating Europe: Capbsiia. December 18,1S‘>6. That I lore England with the affectum or aeon 3ou cannot doubt, and that It la ever the deetro of my heart to aco her in Ibe drat rank among the na tions is equally certain; but to carves the errors ol her ministers—to that 1 cannot lend myself. I repeat, therclore, to yoor statesmen that which I bare stated to one own: Do well, and yjn will receive praise; but to lavish pralso on those who do evil is servile adulation, and 1 never flatter. In the war of giants waged against the First Emperor X search in the pages ol those histories of your country which narrate It for one single expression' 01 condemnation at the expenditure of millions of Uvea and millions of money, sacrificed to com bat one despotism, indeed, hot certainly to sustain another not less exacting. Who, however, on ibe other hand, will not confess with me, that the services rendered by England to the cause of human progress have been immense? And 1 in particular bear testi mony to the benefits received from yon bv Italy in 16C0. without which wo should not nowoe excit ing In the embrace or every member ol the Italian family. But when 1 see the Government of this my adopted country, allied with Austria and with Turkey, 1 must tell you the truth, namely, that 1 inhale the fumes of a charnel house, which all the national vitality may- be enable to dispel. It Groat Britain placca herself in contact with these dead corpses. I would rather see her using her power and her influence to support those oppressed na tionalities at present gclng to decay in tbc petrid atmosphere of despoUsm, but who, remaiulng constant to their desire of purifying themselves, must certainly rise, one day or another, to their natural places In the fraternity of free muons. I«t us leave Austria, whose Emperor ought to receive the fate ol bis brother Emperor of Mexico, and which exists only through the dissensions of nationalities checkmating each other's e&orts to wards emancipation. Let us travel to Turkey, cosmopolitan as I am, and a believer In that God who desires not fac- lions and discords, but, on the contrary, that men shouldlove each other as brethren (which fraterni zation can only be possible, however, when wc send the Dervish to the spade and the Romish orleet to the mattock.) Believing fully all this, I can make no difference between the natives o( |h«s ulatne of Tartary and my countrymen born on the aonov bills of Rome. But have yon any idea what this despotism of the Turks protested against by you rcallyis? 1 will give you an example. One day. In tbe port of Olivieri, in the Island of MUylene, I inquired of a Greek peasant the reason why he did not gather up the olives, instead of permitting them to pensb on the ground? “Be cause," be answered, “the Pacha bnys op a!l the olives, and we are compiled to deliver them to him at such a low price that It would not pay the ex pense of gathering them.” Behold how (be Interest of this poor remnant of Christians is neglected In temporal matters; and for (he rest, for all that concerns the prostitution of the body and of the soul, bow am I to relate U to you, who have so kind a heart, and who bare a a son and dam-burs? It is most horrible. And if Ido not speak of it, oh I forgive me; it Is for the sake of decency, and from the respect which I owe you that 1 cannot detail to you such bru talities. Well, now, 1 have laid before you the condition of tbo ChriaUans under Islam, and Britain—the classic ground of human tights, the protectress of tbe oppressed, tbe emancipatress of the slave— persists In opholding the fruits ot a despotism tne most inhuman and the most monstrous. In 1827, England, France and Rcs:-ia, in one of (hose outbursts of genertslty which God some times excites in great minds, accomplished one of those facts which In tbe history of nations are fol lowed by universal gratitude. Let tnem complete Ibe sublime task—let them spare to humanity a fresh torrent of blood, and they will receive from her a thousand benedictions. O. Garibaldi. A Telegraphic Tarn. (From tbe Buffalo Commercial Advertiser, January 31.1 Some years ago lw*o operators worked in an uptown ofllcc in this city, and both of them chewed tobacco: this latter statement is necessary to the elucidation of the sequel. One of them, who, for brevity's sake, wo will call A, worked cast, on what was then known as the New York. Albany and Buffalo lines; the other, who wc will distinguish as B, worked west, as far as Cleveland, Ohio, on tbe Western Union Company’s lines. These two,who were great chums,were in the habit of constantly using each other's to bacco ; so much so that, ono fumbling In the other's pocket would facetiously iuquiro. “where do we keep our tobacco now?’ while each considered his tobacco box as common property. The desks of thcscopcmtorswerc removed from each other about thirty foot, standing at opposite corners of the room. Now, on one occasion Mr. A's box being empty, bo was, os usual, upon the point of going over to gel ft " cud from B’s supply, when, feel • Ing languid and lazy, U being outrageously hot, a happy thought struck him ; and, fur the sake ol saving himself twenty steps, ho acted upon Us suggest iou. Haying “nothing to nobody." be quietly signalled—or, as the telegraphic phrase Is, called up—Cleveland, Ohio, and lent the following message: ♦ BtrrrALO orfiet (WeMota aide). To B , Buffalo Office (Eastern Side): Prnd ror over a chaw of tobacco, quick. (Signed) A. At thceatm* time telling the Cleveland ope rator tbe Joke, and requesting him to "shove 2 through, and oblige.’’ ~ . Now, by a continuous telegraphic circuit, It 1* possible to reach the Eoat by going West,and this Is the routo the message took: From Buffalo to Cleveland, Ohio ; from Cleveland to Pittsburgh, Pa.; from Pitts burgh to Philadelphia ; from Philadelphia to New York city ; and from Now York city irta the N. Y., A. and B. lines) back to Buf fulo, where It was received by the identical B, who worked that wire himself I And within a very-few mlnntcs of the lime that A started hls message west, B came over to him Irom the other side of the- room with the message in oueAiand and hls tobacco box in tbe other, the despatch, having traveled con siderably over eleven hundred raUes.and having been also sent and received ten differ ent time*. Each operator sending the mes explained the joke to the receiver, and thus "rushed It through” in this marvel ously fast time.

To the Editor of the Chicago Tribune: Believing that gross loiusUco la done under me present method of levying special assessment* tor tbe repair and improvement ot streets, i taae the liberty of calling public attention to the fact through me columua of the pres*. In the nope that some new aytleni may be devised and per-, fected In tbe legislature, which is now In session farea are for the benefit ol me general public, atd not spedady of the priva'e owners of prop erty on me street, and should bo paid for by general tax and not by assessment on mo private proper? on the particular B‘cecu This propor tion cau be demonstrated by the examination o. a alfi'rie case— Wabash avenue. This atree. waa '‘pared during the past and the NUMBER 242, present year, with the Nicholson pavement. The owners of the properly on the line of the street paid the entire charge of the work, amountlcglo something like elgat dollars per foot, and yet It can easily be proved that nine* tenths of the public (ravel southward is over this street. All ofthe heavy hauling to the Darlington A Quincy, Mich lean S&mthem. and Rock island freight depots passes over it; and it is quite as freely used by the residents on Michigan, Indiana and. Prtlrleavenuea, as by those who live oa Wa j««D. itt» a wen pared outlet, and u*cd at all • times ana al all seasons by everybody who drives <wtides, or who baa freigmto truck ordny, and that whether he lives oa the avenue or upon some parallel or adjoining street. Wnat sense, then. It maybe atsed,is there In taxing the man who bappesa to own properly on this street to pay for that which is a general and common benefit ? These rame reasons apply with equal force to otter - streets and avenues. North Clark street, for instance, is soon to be pared with the Mlolboq pavement, and tbe assessment bs< been levied upon the property owners, when It Is a wcH-known fact that fully one-half, if not more, of the Havel on the North aide is upon that street. Tbe expense of making the Improvement is laid wholly oooaprlvßfe property, while It is an Incon trovertible fact that it Is a general ouollc beneflt, Chicago avenue, on the North Side,- has been fo ui Impassable vondhlon for the last Are years, for the simple reason that the propeity would not bear an assessment to Improve h. Such assess ments woula ruin many of the poorer owners of lota on tbe street. Hud sheer inabiHly to raise the money to pay the taxes, and this is the case with ether streets too numerous to memlow. Tbe fact Is UU; these general-improvements are public ben efits, and ebonlo be paid for out of the general revenue of tbe city, and not by private property. Were this rule snooted we should have a duicrent state of aflairs In Chicago; streets would be Im proved and kept hi order, and Ihe chy would, rapidly assume a different appearance from thiT presented to-day. Whiu —— A *rtiefelu bulone inlet to the city from the-west wbich Is passable or navigable—Lake street. MadUon is in a fair condition, but occupied by a bone railroad. Tbe great majority of the teams Fass over Lake street. This la macadamized to larlem. I believe. We certainly need one or two more. Chicago avenue is a wide, floe street, but impassable in wet weather. Twenty inches of macadam would tender it a first rate country road, and it would lake a large amount of travel from tbe west r and with a good bridge over tbe river make a good Inlet lo tbe city. These things are all ncce*sary—they are Indispensable. We bare our railroads and connections spread all over tbe West, and we want our country roads as perfect and popular in tbelr way a* the Iron track.
