After litis several gentlemen rose to questions of privilege. General McConnell defended him* self from the attack made upon him by tho Chi cago Journal, under the head of “Another. Oath- Bicaking Senator.” The venerable Senator de fended himself and bis comae In this matter In au able and convincing manner. Jn the course of bis remarks he made the point that tho pres ent Constitution contained no provision for making a new one, and that, as a matter of law and logic, the people had the right to catl a Con vention to make a new Constitution, whenever, in their Judgment, the necessities of the case re quired It. This is a strong ppint, and 1 hare not found the dm man to controvert it. Ur.

There is no time to be wasted in putting up thc.College, and no swindling contrac tors to be looked alter. Besides this, the location is central, and easy of access from all parts of ibe State, and is one of the richest agricultural coun ties of the State. There is a desire to divide the State institutions so as to do Justice to all parts of the State. Other bidders have made a great hue and cry against Champaign, but it is evident that the General Assembly wilt consult the interest of the whole people In lea lo cation. Just now the putting op of public build ings by the State is not popular, when the enor mous cost is taken into consideration. It Is pro bable that the subject will come up to-morrow in tho Senate on the report of the committee recom mending to locate at Champaign.

Be showed tbatnot less than one nnrired and thirty million bushels of grain were carried by the railroads into Chicago In tbe past year; that nearly the whole of this amount would be carried by water If the canals were built; that .the cost of freightage by rail was three and one-bslf times that by water; Inal the amount of freight carried may be calculated as increasing at the rate of twenty percent per an num. Not less than two millions per annum may be expected as tbo revenue from freights on the line of the Bock Island Improvement alone, even with tbe present development of the country, while we have all tbe great Northwest to back ns. In which not more than one acre la one hundred Is yet cultivated. As evidence of tbo profits be quoted the figures of theNevr York A Erie Canal, showing that up to tbo date of the last Canal Commissioners' report in New York, that canal bad cost but fifty-two and ,s half millions, and tbo expense of repairing and maintaining bad been but twelve and a half millions, while tbo total receipts from tolls bad been soventy-ono millions seven hundred thousand dollars. Tbe speaker revolted to tbe great natural advantages offering encour agement for tbo prosecution of tbo work, and showed how by approtilatious from the General Government and the thy of Chicago, tbe work Is to bo aided, and In con.lnrion appealed to mem bers not to kill the bill by clogging It wltu the weight of petty local measures. . Mr. PARKER glorifiedtheKankakoeniverand wanted it Inserted in the bill for Improvement, but was willing to compromise by allowing an amendment to be inserted In the bill giving the Commissioners the authority to Improve any men In the Stale which they might choose. Mr. BOWVEK expressed his horror of figures, lie did not believe that anything proven by figures could bo true, and however attractive-the canal scheme might be rendered by statistics, ho knew all such statistics weald In the lalare turn out to be glittering deceptions.
