Considerable excitement exists in our city o ver the disclosure of a poisoning affair which for innately was frustrated before a fatal result. The victim of this cow-ardiy attempt to murder Is Mrs. J. F. Thompson, wife of the Michigan cniral Railroad Engineer ol that name. Mrs. Thompson hi.s been for along time sick and con fined to her bed. Until recently btr housework ras been done by one Emma Morey, a daughter of one ot the neighbors, a girl sixteen or aeveii tc’cr ycais old. For some time past Mrs. Thompson has fancied that her food was not all right, and has had suspicion? that some one was attempting to poison her, hut was laughed at by her nurse, a relative of her hosband. About three week? ago her nurse brought her some gruel, but she not liking it pat it aside. The nnr*, however, ate a ia.ge quantity of it and was soon seized with vomiting ard all the svm? toms ot poisoning. To farther tes*. Jl some’ was given to o?.e offer boys, with the like result.

The girl Morey assumes the entire responsi bility of the poisoning, and completely exoner ates every one else from complicity In It. There appears, as yet, no motive which should induce her to undertake so serious a crime. She is a dull. Ignorantgirl, with no very clear preceptlons of right and wrong.

March 6.| We congratulate the people of Freeport for another line of railway, more direct and nearer to Chicago than either of tbe two we now have. A charter haa just passed the Legislature fora, new road from this city by way ot Forrcston and Aurora, being almost an air line, making the distance to Chicago a little over one hundred miles. It is a Hue of road mucb needed hy the people, and traverses the finest and most wealthy and populous sections of northern Illinois. By careful estimate it Is expected that tbe road can be built for loss than ten thousand dollars per mile, ready for the rolling stock. It Is also expected that the portion of the line between Forrcston and Aurora, will be completed, and the cars running over the same the present season. Wealthy and influential parties have, at this early day, we understand, signified their willingness to subscribe largely lor the stock of the road, and there is no question but that all the stock will readily be taken as soon us the hooks arc open for that purpose. This road must be of immense advantage to all tbe people along its contemplated route, and will open a short, cheap route, not only for Freeport, but also one for Dix on, Polo, Haldane, Forrcston, Balleyville, and in fact for all Carroll .direct to Chicago, it also gives the snug little city of Aurora a northwestern outlet, and brings tt in a close connection with western Wiscon sin , northern lowa and Minnesota. The lat ter city, with its splendid water power on Fox River, and manufacturing facilities, aud other improvements, Is greatly in need of this road. There is nothing theoretical or speculative in this enterprise. It is n practicable thing and much needed. Tbe charter is granted, ibe people want the road built, their inter ests demand It, the local trade will suoport it when built. The division between Forrcston and Au rora, of seme sixty-six miles, being com pleted, the connection at Chicago is at once perfected by tbe Chicago, Burlington 6c Quincy Railroad. Wo look upon the enterprise as feasible, and expect, ere smother Jsew Year to make our bow from the cars to the good people along this con tcmplatcd route.

During tho past five or six months one of the five great railroad companies whose com municatbn with this city Is interrupted by the North River has had m operation a llout for the transportation of cars from its depots in New Jersey to the docks of this city. This float Is exiled the Duuderberg, from its pecu liar shape rather than from anj* offensive qualities it possesses. Its length is one hun dred and thirty-seven feet and its width thirty feet. It is fitted with bulwarks along the sides and is provided with two tracks, so that whin it is fastened to a bridge at one cud of tie railroad the cars may be backdd upon H. As It is now arranged eight cars, in two row*, are curried ; but, with alteration, there would be room enough for twelve. The cars arc in this way brought to the city, with their contents, and are unloaded on tin* docks. Then they arc loaded again, and wltnout further bundling the freight is taken several hundred miles, or to its destination, A New Sons to an Old Tone, At a reform nicotine in England last month, at which Edmond Beales presided, a letter was received from John Stuart Mill, the “Reform League Minstrels” sang a version of an air very familiar In this coun try.

MEEcn. and tbe cerllßcafls appended thereto, of JOEL TlFFeNY.hta partner and aC:oroey, consider It their duty to continue and repeat the caution contained In their published card of f eornary Ist. They aver, and arc ready to substantiate the aver ment by competent proaA That tfacybave ibo sole right. under their patent*, ta use Hydrostatic, Hydro-dynam ic and Pneumatic Pressure.ln a rotary or revolving cylinder, for the sabtlalng and bleaching of all material ased in the mana factoro of Paper Palp. Their original Patents give this fully, in the opinion ofemlncEtlawyerswho have »rannnn the matter; but to set tbe question at rest, so far as verbal phrase ology could Indicate the same, the Company obtained a rc-tssue ol their patents on the 33d cf October, 1366, covering the ground In dispute in positive terms. This fact Is emitted orcouccaled by Ur.Uee:h and his at torney, in their statements. These re-issues, by opera tion of law. aid la direct terns, ante-date and tike precedence of the Meech palerl for Pneumatic Pres, sure; anileo lar as that code of pressure U concerned, the Meech patent Is a nullity, aid is rendered absolute ly void. In fact, and in law, it was so without the re issues. So Car, therefore. as Mr. Meech or hU asilgnsatteapt to use Fueumatlc Pressure m a revolving or rotary cylinder, the act will be a direct Infringement on oar rights, and we again notlly all perlons concerned, that prosecution will Immediately follow their attempts to ose ihla mode of pressure la the manufacture ol •paper. As to other processes of Mr. Meech we bare at present' notbit g to say, being entirely satisfied by oar own and the experience of others, that the processes we claim under our patents are &r superior to all others In use In this country or abroad. We invite the attention ol all Paper Man nlkcth re ra te the practical working cl onr process. Orerfbrtyof the drat manufacturers In theNorhern Mates bare purchased rights, and so far as th-.T have pnt them In practical operation, they hare met with unvarying success. Anrng others ih.s using the process, and' wb< se mills arc most convenient of access, we refer to. the Niagara Falls Paper Company, and the Bochester Paper Con pany, of Bochester,N.T. In these mills the process has been in ose on a large seals for over eight months. All wbo take the trouble to visit these establishments, will Hod satisfactory evllence of the great value of our discoveries* and will have ocular proof that the claims made in oar origmal circular were cot exaggerated. l. c. woosaurr, President, Siaoaha Falls, March 11. 18b7.
