(Special Despatch lo the Chicago Tribune. Washington. February. FATE OF TUB RECONSTRUCTION UILL. Opinion is yet very much divided as to the action that will be taken by the President on the Reconstruction Bill. It Is probable tnat all doubts will be settled 10-morrow. Lead ing indications arc os heretofore that the bill will be vetoed. NOMINATIONS. The President sent to the Senate this after noon a large number of civil nominations, among which were Henry L. Bryant, Asses sor Ninth District Illinois ; William P. Cole man, Assessor Tenth District Illinois. THE TARIFF BILL has occupied the House in Committee of the Whole about six aud a halt hours to-day, and now eigbly-oneoutof tbe two hundred and sevety.fivo omcndmen.srccommendcd by the Ways aud Means Committee have been acted upon. Things went smoothly enough in the afternoon till woollen flocks were reached. A sharp debate here of half an hour raised the dulv ou this article from three cents in the Senate bill to twelve cents. Most of the Ways and Means recommendations on wool and woollens arc an udvause on the Senate bill, and nearly all weie agreed to. The subject of flax brought out the grdal debate of the day. It lasted «ivcr au hour, aud fixed the duty on raw flax at forty dollars per ton; on hackled flax, eighty dollars; raw Russia hemp, fifty dol lars ; other hemps, thirty dollars; Has straw, live dollars; jute, fifteen dollars. Nearly til the proposed amendments on iron arc ad vances on the Senate bill, aud most of them were agreed to. The House adjourned at 10# o’clock. TUE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY has been much agitated to-day, by reason of various telegrams relative to the action of the Judiciary Committee, that have reached here from New York. These telegrams re port private advices In effect that the com mittee will recommend in favor of impeach s menl before the close of the week. There Is most direct and positive authority for say ing that no one has any warrant for stating that the committee will make such recom mendation. It must be said that no com milUc, for many years, has been so success ful as this In keeping Us own secrets. It is * known in a general way that they have examined* a large nnmhcr of witnesses, some of whom have held, or arc now hold ing, high official position; that the evidence is very voluminous, and, In part, of a highly sensational character. It Is further known that many of the witnesses had nothing of importance to tell. The mover of the loves- j ligation is very confident of the truth of his 1 charges, but this is believed by very few I Representatives. It can be positively said that the committee has reached no conclu sion in regard to the matter, and has not even discussed the question os to what con clusions may be drawn from the evidence. Jt can now be stated that no movement has vet been made in the committee toward drawing up a repOjt, or even toward decid ing whether any formal report shall be pre sented before the adjournment. The frets bearing upon the question having been thus stated, it may be added that the committee will probably report that much evidence has been taken, but that they are not prepared to make any recommendation beyond one that the investigation may properly be con tinued by the new Congress, and It is not vliolly certain that they will even make this recommendation, as they may prefer to leave the coming Congress wholly tree to pursue the Inquiry or not, as It shall see fl ■ THE UTAH MEMORIAL. The House Judiciary Committee, through Mr. Cook, of Illinois, will submit to the House to-morrow or next day, a report up »n the memorial of the Legislative Assembly of Utah, (iraylng a repeal of the law of 18(13 prohibiting polygamy in the Territories of the United States. The memorial sets up that the law is ex post facto in character. Is In vio lation of the Constitution, and has never been enforced. The report of the commit* lee meets the ease squarely, and speaks of polygamy and its upholders without minc ing words. The committee show that the la w Is not ex post facto , by quoting from Us provisions. In answering the charge oT the memorial that the law is in violation of n clause of the Constitution which prohibits Congress from Interfering with the free ex -r --cise of religion, the committee affirm the full power of Congress to deal with all questions affecting the morals of society, and say that In a religious sense the entire community outside of-Utah looks upon the polygamist as no better than a felon. They hold that if the argument of the memorial was a correct conclusion, it would prevent Congress fiom prohibiting the Thugs of In dia from practicing their horrible so-called religious rites if they should ever chance to immigrate to this country. To repeal the law would be to make an affirmative declara- tion in the name of the people of the Unlied States that polygamy Is right, and would shock the moral sense of the world as well as declare that the home and marriage relation cannot be protected by the Government. The committee say they have been unable to learn why tbe law is not executed, and deem it proper that an official invest‘gallon should be made iuto the assertion in this regard. Mr. Cook closes his report, recommend ing the passage of a resolution declaring, in the strongest terms that Congress, speaking for the people, is utterly opposed to the re peal, now or at any future time, of tbe law in question, but demands Us strict and Imme diate enforcement, The resolution also de clares that the Judges should be at once re moved If they aie at fault, and if the cause for the non-enforcement of the low Is beyond their reach, the President should interfere and see that the laws are faithfully executed. AI’I'OINTTMENTS OF QUARTERMASTERS. The President has appointed the following named persons, as officers in the Quarter master's Department, under the act of July, IStiO: Assistant Quartermasters General, with the rank of Colonel, to date from July 2S, ISCO, Robert Allen, James L Donald son and Daniel H.

SENATE DILL FOR 'THE FUNDING OP COM FOUND INTEREST NOTES. The fivanclai bill passed by the Senate to day as a substitute for tbc House bill for funding compound interest notes by the issue of greenbacks, provides in tbe first section for tbe Issue of temporary loan certificates to tbc amount of one hundred millions, bearing interest not exceeding three per cent, principal and interest payable in lawful money on demand, provided that not less than two-fifths of the entire reserve of Na tional Banks shall consist of lawful money of tbc Uulted States. The second section enacts that no National Bank shall pay or icceive interest on any portion of its reserve when deposited in another National Bank, and that the compound interest notes shall not be held as part of the reserve after the first of July next. SMUGGLING SCHEME. Tie Secretary of tbe Treasury to-day re ceived information from a high source iu England that an organized attempt will bo made, in tbc event of tbc passage of a high protective tariff, to smuggle goods into the United States via Canada. One of tbc leading newspauers in Sheffield has recently openlv advised the merchants of that city lo organize, and with associated capital, secretly to carry on this traffic. INTERNAL REVENUE INSTRUCTIONS. The Commissioner of Internal Revenue to day Issued instructions prohibiting Inspec tors from making Inspections of bouded goods upon request of the owners, and re quiring collectors to assign special ware houses to certain inspectors. Store keepers are prohibited from allowing merchandise to be enter ad or withdrawn, except upon the inspection of the particular inspector de tailed at such warehouse. A new assignment ol Inspectors is ordered to be made monthly. OFFICERS OF THE NEXT HOUSE, There is little stir about the officers of the House tor-the new Congress, Speaker Col tax, ami Clerk McPherson, arc not likely to meet any opposition to their rc-elcction. Not much Is said us to the Scrgcant-at-Arms end Postmaster. It is probable that the present incumbents trill he re-elected, though there is some doubt In regard to the latter. The contest on Doorkeeper is rather more lively, and the soldier interest is pushing s-lrongly for a change in their Interest, and ~ccm at present likely enough to carry the day. f Associated i*ress D:sjiat«-bw.J NEW OIILEANV CUSTOM HOUSE AFFAIRS. Washington'. February *27.—The Commit tee on tbe No* Orleans riots, who were in truded to inquire into the alleged frauds iti the New Orleans Custom House, have made a report on the lat'er branch, in which they say they decided not to attempt an investi calion of matters concerning which no in tmumtiun bad been given to them, or into occurrences said to have transpired at so re mote a date as IStil, but conllned their ac tion to that part of tbe resolution which re garded appointments. The conclusions at which the committee arrived arc: First—That it does not appear that the Collector, Mr. Kellogg, has made appointments of persons whom tie had reason to believe had been in any way connected with the rebel service. Second—That It does not appear that Mr. Kellogg deemed It his duty to inquire, and that he hud not iu fact inquired, us to the antecedents of appli cants for office with reference to their con nection with the Federal or rebel service. Third—That removals had been made, some ol which were quite recent, of persons em ployed in the Custom House, when it ap peared that they bad been actually engaged in rendering aid during the rebellion to the rebel cause. Fourth—That great aud continual care should he taken iu the appointment of ofii cers whose duty it Is to protect the Govern ment against frauds upon the revenue laws, that none but genuine and known friends of the Government should he appointed to ofiice. Filth —That such care has been uni formly taken In all the departments of the Custom House. [Representative Boyer, one 'f the committee, docs not unite with the majority in this conclusion.] Sixth — 1 hat the effect of the examination inquiry made by the committee will be to Insure the exercise of greater care in the retaining of parties now in office and In the appointments hereafter lobe made. Seventh—Thai it is not expedient at this time to recommend to the House of Representatives any action concerning appointments to ofiice in the Custom House at New Orleans. The Collector, in a letter to the committee, says: t% Of the two hundred and fifty-two men em ployed iu the Custom House, seventy-seven have served in the United States army, seven teen is the navy, and twenty-eight have been connected with the army as clerks, or neatly fifty per cent of the entire number. All the regular appointees have taken the oath required by law. Some persons who hud served In the rebel cause obtained ap pointments, under cover of the test oath, tint whenever cases of this kind were brought to the attention of the Collector, he dismissed them. SURRATT'S VISITOR. The JlfraJcTf special says; * 4 A man at tempted to obtain admission to Surratt yes terday by pretending lo be his brother just from Texas, but the guards were not satisfied of his identity aud refused to admit him.” CONFIRMATION.

The bill relative to Ibc Navy passed with amendments, reducing tlxc number of cadets ut large from twenty-tive to ten. The act to Amend an act for the removal of csabcs In certain cates from State Courts, passed. The evening session to day was assigned to the consideration of bills from the Military Committee. Mr. HOWARD reported a bill granting a portion of the military reservation in Kan sas for railroad purpose* Pending its con sideration, the morning hour expired. On motion of Mr. SHERMAN, the Com pound Interest Note Bill was taken up. The question was on the Senate substitute lor House bill. The bill, as passed by the the House, authorizes the Secretary ot the Treasure to redeem compound Interest notes with new issues of legal tenders, not to ex ceed $100,000,000. For this the Senate Finance Committee proposes as a substitute the bill passed by the Senate a couple of months ago, authorizing the redemption of maturing compound Interest notes with cer tificates of Joan at 3 per cent interest. The substitution of the Senate bill was agreed to. tMr. SHERMAN, from the Finance Commi VOL. XX. tee, offered the following: ThatnoNational Bank shall receive or pay interest on any portion of its reserve when deposited in any other National Bank, and compound In* lerest notes shall not beheld as part of their reserve after the Ist of July next. This was agreed to, and the bill as amended passed. Mr. TRUMBULL reported from the Com mlttcc on the Judiciary, without amend ment, the Hoese bill declarlngvaud and con elusive certain proclamations of the Presi dent and acta done in pursuance thereof or his orders in the suppression of the late re bellion against tbe united States. Mr. TRUMBULL also reported adversely on the House bill amendatory of the act “ declaring the officer who shall act as Pres ident of the United States in case of aya»n cy in the office both of President and Vice President,” and moved its postponement for the reason that there was not sufficient time remaining for its proper consideration during the present session. The motion was agreed to. Mr. SHERMAN called up tbe omnibus Ap propriation Bill, which was read. The Finance Committee recommended sev eral amendments of no public Importance, and one abolishing the office of Commissioner ol Public Buildings, and authorizing the election by the Senate of Superintendent Mr. WADE opposed the latter amendment. Mr. SHERMAN thought it out of place m an appropriation bill. . „. Mr. WADE said the Commissioner of Pub lic Buildings bad charge of the Capitol building, if any difficulty occurred be tween tbe President and Congress while the officer having charge of the Capitol was un der appointment of the President, H might lead 10 a good deal of inconvenience. He thought it very important that the man hav ing charge of the Capitol should be a man friendly to Congresss. ~ . . Mr. HOWARD said he should vole against striking out the section because he thought ilie appointment ought to be vested in the Senate. Messrs. SHERMAN nod WILLIAMS spoke in favor of the Senate amendment. Mr. EDMUNDS doubted the right ofCon wms to elect the Commissioner of Public Buildings. He proposed, In place of the House proposition, a section that the office of CniiMi'icsioner of Pnblic Buildings is here by abolished, and until otherwise provided the duties of that office shall be performed by the Quartermaster General of the Army. Mr. WADE contended fortbe House prop osition. There had been threats of violence against Congress by the organs and spokes men of 1 he President, and the President bud never done anything to contradict these threats. Ibis being tbe case. Congress enght to sin round itself with Us friends. Mr. HOWARD spoke in a similar vein. After debate, the Senate went into Executive Scssicn, and subsequently took a recess. EVENING SESSION. Mr. WILSON called up the joint resolu tion, passed by the House at the lost session, directing the Secretary of War to contract fur the erection of an equestrian statue in bronze to the memory of General Winfield Scott. It is to bo made by Henry K. Brown, of Newburg, New York, of cannon captured In the Mexican war, and cost not exceed ing £20,C00. The resolution was amended so as to read, “to be placed lo Franklin Square, In Washington City, orotherplacc. to be designated by the Secretary of War,” and passed. Tbe consideration of the Miscellaneous Appropriation Bill was resumed. The ques* tion was on the amendment of Mr. ED* MUNDS to substitute for the section abol ishing tbc oUicc of Commissioner of Pnblic Buildings. &c., a section abolishing the oi licc and imposing its duties upon a compe tent Civil Engineer to be appointed by the President, at an annual compensation of £4.000. Adopted. The Finance Committee recommended tbc adoption of a resolution authorizing the Sec retary of tbc Treasury to pay such Assistant Assessors as were actually employed in the collection of internal revenue lu the rebel Spates prior to August Ist, 1865, compensa tion at the rate prescribed by law. 3lr. TRUMBULL opposed tbe amendment. Mr. SHERMAN explained the circum stances under which these men were em ployed. Mr. SUMNER sald'*thc Secretary of the Treasury was guilty of uu Illegal act, nay more, of a crime, lie violated tbc law In appointing men wbo could not take the oath. He denounced the Secretary as having been guilty of falsehood In saying there were no loyal men in those localities who could hold tbc ©Dices. Mr. SHERMAN said tbc language was un parliamentary. It was ungcntlemanly. It was false, and it ought not to have been uttered in tbe Senate. The debate was continued ot great length, Mr. FESSENDEN defending the Secretary oj the Treasury against the attacks of Mr. Sum ner. Sir. WILLSON offered a substitute for the pending resolution, proposing and declaring that in appointing as Assessors persons who could uut take the oath, tbc Secretary acted in violation of tbo law, but tbe persons being guilty oi uo offence arc entitled In cqul iv the compensation, and authorizing the Seciciary to pay them. After further'debutc, the Senate, at 11.45 p. iu., sojourned. HOUSE. Mr. KASSON. from the Committee on Uni form Coinage, asked leave to report a bill to establish essay offices at Denver, Colorado; Charlotte, North Carolina, and Dahionega, Georgia, but Sir. ANCONA objected. The House went Into Committee of the Whole on the Naval Appropriation Bill, tho total of which Is On motion ofMr. KUYKENDALL. 810,003 was appropriated for a naval station at Mound City, Illinois. The bill, after some further consideration, vos passed. The SPEAKER presented the annual re port of tbcSmiibsunian Institute. Ordered [•rinti-d. The report of the Conference Committee on ti c lull to quit land titles In California, was agreed to. The Senate receded from its amendment inserting Flaecrvißc, end the House recedes from Us objectlou to Peta luma. The House went into Committee of the Whole on the Tariff Bill. Amendments from the Committee of Ways and Means were disposed of as follows : Amendments numbered from twenty to thirty, in reference to wool, striking out tho words “at the last point or place,” &c M so ns to leave the valuation to depend upon the price in thenrincipalmarketsofthecouotry. Mr. MORRILL moved to amend Amend ment No. SO os reported by the Committee of Wuys and Means, by striking out the words “and such commissions,” so that tho clause should read “and upon wool of the first class imported, unwashed, the value whereof in the principal markets of the country whence exported to the United States, excluding charges, shall be so much per pound.” Mr. ALLISON opposed the amendment as having the effect of reducing the duty on wool. The amendment was rejected. Amendments reported by tbe Committee of Ways and Means, numbering from twenty to thirty, were adopted. The amendment Inserting woollen flocks In the paragraph faxing woollen rags, &c., twelve cents per pound, came up. The amendment was agreed to. The amendment to strike out of the Sen ate substitute the words “ and on woollen flocks or shearings of fulled cloth the duty shall be three cents per pound,” was agreed to. Amendments relative to woollen cloths, hunting, dress goods, carpets, oil cloths, and dicss silks were adopted. On tbe amendment increasing the tax on uniuanuthctnrcd flax from fifteen to twenty dollars per ton, Mr. SCHENCK moved to increase it to forty-fire dollars, and subse quently to SIOO, "Both rejected. After debate, in which the interests of the East and West were vindicated by members from each section, Mr. SCHENCK moved to increase the tax to forty dollars. Adopted bv a vote of IjO to -45. 'Mr. SCHENCK moved lo increase the duty on hackled flax to fifty dollars per ton. Mr. FARNSWORTH mo red to increase it to eighty. A similar debate ensued, which was finally terminated by tbe rising of the committee. The House took a recess. The committee has disposed of but forty- five of the amendments ol the Ways and Means Committee. EVENING SESSION, Mr. SCHENCK reported back from the Military Committee the Senate bill to pro vide for the temporary increase of pay of officers of the army, with amendments. The amendments were agreed to, and the bill rawed. „ ... , The House wont into Committee of the Whole on the Tariff Bill. Having ordered debate closed on the pending paragraph, all amendments to the paragraph were rejected, and the duty on flax adopted as reported by the committee. During the debate on the amendment to incicafc the duty on horse shoes, Mr. STE VENS sucpcslcd that if the friends of the tariff would hold their tongues and not talk so much, there would he some chance of having the hill passed, but not otherwise. ILanghtcr.] After having reached the 82d amendment, leaving still IPS to be considered, the com- raillcc rose. Mr. MORRILL gave notice that he would to-morrow .try to press the Tariff Bill to a final vote. Mr. RAYMOND asked leave to offer a res- olution declaring that the establishment in the immediate proximity of the United States of a powerlul monarchy,Sunder the support of a foreign nation, cannot be re corded otherwise than as being hostile to the peace, and menacing to the safety of this Republic, and rcQUQStlng the President to *«nform the House whether any remonstrance has been made by this Government urainst the proposed consolidation ot all the British North American Provinces Into a single Confederacy, under thcim]K:rlal rule of an English Prince, and whether the consent of this Government has been given In any nay to the consummation of that pndcct. Mr. CONKLING objected. Mr. RAYMOND moved to suspend the rules. The vote being taken, there was no quotum.

SnuKGFixu), 111., February 27. RESIGNATION OP COLONEL WILSON. There is a very generally credited rumor afloat to-day that Colonel J. J. S. Wilson has resigned his position asCommlssioner for the location of the new State House,and that Ja cob Bunn,Esq., has been appointed to (til the vacancy. The conditions upon which Colonel Wilson retires, is understood to be that he shall receive the five dollars per diem for four years,amounting to ovcr.scven thousand dollars in the aggregate. THE BILL FOB THE EQUALIZATION OP ASSESS- MENTS. The Conference Committee on the Equali zation Bill made a report to each House, to-night, and it was agreed to, and the bill only awaits the signature of the Gover nor. The agreement is on the House bill, with an additional amendment, giving the power to the Auditor to fix the rate of State taxation for revenue purposes, each year, instead of being fixed by law, as is now tne case. NIGHT SESSION. Both Houses were in session to-night, up to a late hour, referring and passing bills. Among the bills passed In the House, was the one to incorporate the Indiana and Chi cago Railroad, which I am convinced is a swindle, Intended to defeat the building of another road, which la really needed by the people of Blue Island. The fact that the name of Charles H. Ham, of the law and lobby firm of Fuller, Ham & Shepard, Is one of the is proof of its character. General Uurlbut and Mr. Taylor were its particular cham pions, while It was opposed in a few pointed remarks by Mr. Reynolds. During the even ing session, in the House, the utmost noise and confusion prevailed, disgraceful to those participating in it. During this confusion a laige number of bills passed, the contents of which were entirely unknown to the mem beis. Many of them will, I think, rise up in judgment against those who voted for them. The supplementary act to the Chi cago Charter amendments to provide for the election of Canal Commissioners, went through to-night in an omnibus, and is now a law. THE SPRINGFIELD NEWSPAPERS. Tbc Springfield State Journal, in taking er ceptlon to some statements made by Joe Forrest, whom everybody knows is constitu tionally incapable of telling the truth ex cept with a fraudulent intent, in bis corre spondence to tbc Chicago Times, closes with tbe following paragraph: 44 Tbe people wbo read tbc trash sent from Springfield to the Chicago papers, and reproduced there under flaming bead lines, will know by the two ex amples above given bow very reliable la the information contained therein, and will doubtless appreciate tbc stu pendous enterprise of tbe publish ers as well as tbc Industry of tbe writers at the Capital.” The fact that a good share ol tbc news page of tbc Journal Is made up from tbc Springfleld despatches to the Chicago Tridune will give tbc public a proper understanding of the lively and en terprising manner in which that sheet is con ducted. No man here ever tbiuks of refer ring to the colunmsof tbe Springfleld papers foi any local, legislative or lobby news, or has any idea of being posted until tbc Chica go papers arrive- These Springfleld papers arc immense institutions in tbc way of fat contracts, but in every other respect they arc but tbc weakest ol solutions. AN APOLOGY FROM MR. SHEPARD. Mr. Shepard arose In bis scat this morning, and made an bumble apology for assaulting Mr. Singer last night. No action on bis case was taken by the House. Let me here state that Mr. S'ngcr has fought tbc buudred or more swindles,which have been attempted to be driven through tbc General Assembly, with a vigilance and determination which entitles him to tbc everlasting grati tude of the people of Chicago. For doing this be has been continu ally at noyed by the insolcucc and threats of tbc lobby swindlers, whom be has thus been enabled to defeat in tbeir designs to plunder tbc people. I ought to add that Mr. Siugcr, iu bis good work, has been assisted at all times by Mr. Reynolds, wbo bos made a record that will read well in tbe future. Latcrln tbc morning Mr. Singer explained the cause and the manner of the assault made upon him by Mr. Shepard. He asked for no action on the part of the House. CANAL COMMISSIONERS. The discovery was made this afternoon by Alderman Holden, that In the amendments recently passed by the General Assembly to the Chicago City Charter, the clause which legislated out of office the Board of Public Works did the same thing with Colonels Mason and Gooding, the two Canal Coramls* sloiicrs; acd while the election of anew Board oi Public Works Is provided for In another section of the amendments, no such provision is made for new Canal Commis sioners. A supplementary bill with the no* ccssnry provision was immediately drawn and pnl through the Senate in less than ten minutes. It was then immediately sent to the House. DEFEATED. The bill to establish a State Reform School, which was passed by the Senate on Monday, a synopsis ol which I sent you, was called up this afternoon for a second reading by a suspension of the rules. Mr. Epler, who has voted for evsry big steal dur ing the present session, protested against the bill for the reason that it would call for more money than thoic would be in the Treasury after the demands of the appropriations already passed have been satisfied. It re quiring a three-fourths vote to suspend tho rules, it coald not be done, and tbe great measure in tbe interests of humanity has been defeated. THE STATE LEGISLATURES. ILLINOIS [Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.] Springfield. HU, February 27. SENATE. MORNING SESSION. THE ILLINOIS AND STATE LINE RAILROAD. Mr. AD DAMS obtained leave to introduce a bill incorporating the Illinois and State Line Railroad Company. Rales suspended and bill passed. SENATOR WARD EXPLAINS. Mr. WARD rose lo a question of privilege. He read from the Springfield correspondence of the Chicago Tribune in which his course on the Chicago Gas BUI was censured. He claimed that he bad been misrepresented on the gas question. He would not be hostile to a good Gas BUI, bat the one alluded to did hot meet bis approval. His opposition was undisguised and open. He had resorted to no tricks to defeat the bUI, and would not, bat chose to exercise bis rights as a Senator on this question as he did on all others. PRINTING TRE LAWS. Mr. CODES offered a resolution authoriz ing the printing: oflbe laws of this Lcgisla* turc in tnc Illinois State Journal and State li<y x*ter% at a cost of S4OO to each paper. Laid over. CURRENT EXPENSES PROVIDED FOR. Mr. WARD called up the bill fixing the rate of taxation for defraying the current expenses of tho State Government and pay ing the interest on the State debt. The bill passed. HILL FOR TUB EQUALIZATION OF TAXES. Mr. McCONNELL called up his sub stitute for the House bill for the equalization of taxes, which passed the Senate and was disagreed to in me House. A vote was taken, when the Senate reftised to adhere to Mr. McConnell’s substitute. Mr. WOODSON moved a reconsideration. Adopted. Mr. MACK moved to adhere to Mr. Mc- Connell’s amendment. Adopted.

Advertiser.} Some onehas written a letter to the Chicago Tripene from this vicinity, stating that our county would be ruined bv the ship canal. This Is news, Indeed. If tbe plan Is carried out and slaekwatcr navigation la created In the river as tar up as Joliet, the water power alone would be as valuable as the present canal. Besides, we should be able to ship grain, stock or implements either to New Orleans or Chicago, to buy oar groceries o i NUMBER 261. Ant bands in Louisiana or the West Indies, to fret lumber from the Upper Mississippi os well os from the lakes, in short, to bay la the cheapest market and sell In the dear est. At present, we ore forced to sell and buy in Chicago. It Is true that if the present canal should be abandoned either this year or next, a few citizens, wbo bare built granaries or ware* houses upon it, would lose. Bat the present canal will, under the plan, be in use for ten years at least, giving ample time to these few to make other arrangements and quad ruple the value of their present business property. The first work to be done is to open the Illinois River from LaSalle to the Mississippi; the second, to enlarge the canal from Chicago to Joliet; the last to make slackwater navigation in the river between Joliet and LaSalle. Until this last shall be fully done, the whole commerce by water be tween the cities of the Mississippi and Chi cago would pass by our doors through the present canal. The passage of a judicious bill for the steamboat canal will raise the value of real estate at once In this county.
