Illinois is tbe first State that has adopied the eight-honr system but a bill similar to the above has passed one branch of the Missouri Legislature, and the discussion of the eight-hour svstem has a lar*. place in the landing political campaign fn Connecticut. The worliingmen of that State have questioned the candidates of both parti? as to their opinions on the subject. It is ?n nounced from Rhode Island that the woolen manufacturers ofthat State, who have recently received a considerable amount of additional protection by the passage of tbe wool tariff and the relief from various internal duties, have reduced the wages of their employes ten n-r I cent.

The editor torgot to publish it. Probably the Republicans may forget to subscribe for his paper when the collector calls again. Tbe President would not name the paper, so the publishers may have time to repent. Mr. Dudley, (white,) was next introduced. He denied the correctness of a statement tba? tbe Freedmen s Bureau was co-operating with Johnson to defeat tbe Republicans, ai.d considered it as an unjust reflection upon (jen Howard. Rev. Mr. Boulden, (colored, 1 aatd that the allusion was to a remark he bad made.

Mr. Needbam. 1 white.' said be saw notbm g improper in tbe report, certainly nothing tbat was intended to give offence. He was glad to see so full a report. Mr. King replied tbat tbe report in tbe Star was true, mxbing garbled, but be objected 10 the distinction. Mr. Tucker. < white,) at tbe invitation of tbe president, stated tbat in designating the speakers as white or colored in the reports there was no intention whatever to make an invidious distinction It was done simply to make the report clear and intelligent, and to sbow what were the views expressed by white speakers and what by colored speakers. Tbe tine frier.ds of the colored man will not blnsb when told that his name appears among them. There are some who want to be recognized as friends of tbe colored men who are ashamed to be known among tbero. Such may object to see their names in the same lis*; buta straightout Republican will never bo ashamed of th* association. Mr. T. did not consider Mr King as one ot the half-way sort. He knew bis zeal in the cause As to the "amen corner," tbat was a term applied to a part of tbe church Wbere tbe steady, fervent members asualiy sit, and from which tbe responses to the set timentsot prayer are frequent. It is ne discredit to a church to have such a corner, limplies vitality of piety in tbat church.
