Mr. Stevenson tried to resuscitate the bill lo Incorporate the Great Western Elevator Company, which was killed in tho House ycstciday in a moat summary manner. lie insisted that It could be so amended as to be made pn unexceptionable bill. The House by a very emphatic vote declined lo vitalize the bill. amendments to toe school law. Neatly the entire afternoon session was exhausted In considering the amendments to the School Law, TheV wctc passed. One amendment puts the compensation of the County Superintendents at five dollars per day for each day’s service actually rendered. The county of Cook was excepted from the provisions ot this bill, IN TUE SENATE. About the entire afternoon session of the Senate, and the morningsession, too, for that matter, was consumed in a general wrangle in widen about every Senator took part. THE STATE HOUSE BILL —WILL THE GOT EHNOR VETO IT? The Governor has not yet indicated what he is going to do with the New State House Bill. The fact that he has held it so long in creases the probabilities that he will veto it, and there are manifest signs of uneasiness among the citizens of Springfield. It would be a sad thing tor them if the pet measure upon which they have expended so much time and lobby diplomacy should be sent to the bottom by the sterling honesty of Gov . mcr OpUsby. There are many rumors cur rent on the subject. One is that Governor Ualcsby will sign the bill, but decline torcc iguize the Commissioners' names In ihe bill, and proceed at once ;o appoint new Commissioners by and with the advice and consent of the Senate. This tumor is not well authenticated. I may >;ate what is considered no secret that Judge Thomas, who was one of the leading iiamers of the present Constitution, is in constant consultation with the Governor, and every bill upon which there arc any constitutional doubts is submitted to and thoroughly examined by that veteran law giver. It does not seem to me that he can decide the provisions of the New State House BUI in accordance with either the letter or >phlt ol the Constitution. Time will detcr . mine the issue.

The melancholy affair took place In the kitchen attached to the Our House dining saloon, and the principal actor was a French man named Allred Mueillot, who was the chief cook in that establishment. His victim was a young man named Philip Judge, about twcnlv vears AMERICA. FROM NEW YORK. FROM MEXICO. Rockford, Arrests for Arson, Kloooe. short time since, had been employed there as a waiter. The Coroner, Dr. Robert P.

given orders to not allow him la the kitchen. Fatally tor him, he went there yesterday morning, and taking a cup, asked the pan* tryman lor some milk and sugar, and was about to go to the coffee urn, when Meniilot told him that the proprietor did not allow him to come there, whereupon he told the Frenchman to “go to hell.” The latter, who held a knife in his hand at the time, said if Judge repeated that expression he would put the knife into him. The boy made use of the expression again, when, true to his threat, the enraged Meuil iot plunged the knife intotUebodyof Judae, inflicting an instantly mortal wonnd. The knife used was a lung carving-kmie, which was very sharp, and entered the right side, penetrating to the lung and cutting it off. With an exclamation of '‘Ob, God I I am killed !” Judge fell to the ground, and ex* pired almost instantly. Ween the murderer saw what he bad done, be leaned his bead and appeared os though praying in French: then, seizing the bloody knife, and baring bis own breast, he plunged It in some six or seven times, in the region of the heait. Laying the knife on the table, he fell dead upon the floor. The Perils of “Paymu Attention.” (From the Saturday Review.

The mercenary umteh-muker considers only tho first point; our ideal match-maker would lay lar more stress upon the second. But still in any case, this growing tendency to treat the prac tice of “paying attention” in the spirit of es an science oilers at least one ray of hope to those who complain that, do what they will, they cannot escape having to pay this dangerous inbutc.

I.} Journal, Fah. 17 ] The recent murder of Kate White, by her husband, John White, on Tippecanoe street, was one ofthc most brutal that we have for a long time hud occasion to record as occur ring in this State. A drunken husband fin ishes a long course of violent 111-treatment and shocking brutality to a wife, whose ou.y fault w as that she endured so long and so un complainingly. by deliberately choking her to death because she would not give him money which proved really not to have been in her possession at the time. On her body arc found the traces of bruises received from him in previous utTrujs, and the fresh wounds with which he prefaced the horrible grip, which crushed the organs ofthc throat and was the Immediate cause ot death. Even in her last expressions she declined asking for his arrest, and when inquired of whether he zad been beating ocr, said, “Not much.” Toe fact that White is the murderer is es tabl’shcd beyond any possible doubt. The testimony showed that he was always abus ing and testing his victim, and that she was very oficn seen with traces of violent blows upon her lace, but would never confess that they were inflicted by him, invariably giving sone other explanation. In consequence oi the dispute about the sevinty-fivo dollars which White wanted to get away from her, she went with her child Tuesday night to stop at Mrs. Mulvay’s on Plane street, and remained there until her husband came and brought her away Thurs day evening. She told JLrs. Mulvay when she lon that she did not want to go. and tak ing her by the hand, said, “Goodbye; you will hear ot my drat h.” Friday morning the quanel between White and bis wife about the money was resumed, as was evidenced by the or-ise which bkVCial of the neighbors heard. She told him that the money was on Plane street. He went away, and did not return during the forenoon. He obtained some liquor on Plane street, but no money, as It was in tbc possession of Mrs. White’s mother. When Mis. White's mother saw ber, at 2 o'clock p. m., she was uninjured. White came back about £ o'clock, and then occurred the altercation which resulted fa lallv. Between 3 and 4 o'clock (there being no one In the room except White and bis wife), several neighbors and passers-by heard the noise oi a straggle, and “mur der!” from Mrs. White. Mrs. Mynchon, Mrs. Ashcroft, and afterwffrds others, ob tained admission Into the mom, and found the woman in an appaicntlv dying condition, ste having been strangled and her throat crushed by the clutch of her husband’s hand.
